Have you ever wondered what Pokémon Emerald might look like in a parallel universe? Well, combined with modern day Pokémon ROM hack features that is exactly the idea of this Emerald ROM Hack. All maps in Hoenn have been redesigned, expanded or completely reworked. And you can expect completely new maps as well! Accompanied by these changes are different Gym Leaders, Rivals and Elite members at the Pokémon League to make this game feel like a truly different experience!

All trainers and encounters have been reworked with Pokémon from all 8 Generations (Hisui included). Battle mechanics are updated to Generation 8. And of course, there will also be many of the QOL features you know and love from modern Pokémon games or other ROM hacks.

This game can be played on two difficulties, which you can change to and from at ANY point in the game. There also is a Sandbox mode. Detailed features are listed below.
