1 Pokemon Light Platinum Pokemon Light Platinum

The best and the first ROM hack I've ever played!

Some might say this one is the best, well I give it a number 3 - ManuelMetal

It has 2 new region to explore and also we can face Ash it is totally a beast game

What a game I loved it so much things to do awesome game

2 Pokemon Glazed

Pokemon glazed is the best game I have ever seen.Pokemon glazed have new region and 5 that game has every legendary Pokemon from region 1 to 6.

I could almost say this was a legit Pokemon game. I loved the game, found it better than Light Platinum. It's not as monotonous as Light Platinum, the pace is very good, you can actually get amazing Pokemon at the start of the game. The plot is very good and the people and setting is awesome. 5/5

I bought this game a while ago and haven't played it since because at the very beginning once I got into the first forest I saved the game, and I tried to get out and those guys were blocking the way for me to get out and there was no way to go any farther, I was saving it just in case I didn't catch Mudkip. I saved again when I was right beside mudkip and I didn't catch him and I turned the game back on and it wouldn't let me click on him or battle him. I don't know if it was just the guy who made my hack but I was very dissatisfied with this game for saving reasons. If anybody else has these problems please share

One of my all time favorite rom hacks, and still is my favorite.

3 Pokemon Adventures: Red Chapter

The Best! Since I've read the manga I've felt that was how the anime should've been and this hack is just as entertaining. - ManuelMetal

I read the manga. I loved it. Played this game. Loved it more.

Amazing easily the best rom hack, story is great and the game is long, can't wait for the next beta/update

Amazing game,graphics and Story as well as captivating game play that simply cannot be missed.

4 Pokemon Ash Gray

Following the footsteps of anime star ash makes it awesome and certain according to my the best of best hacks

Well, after I come out from the ruins where you find aerodactyl the game freezes!

I didn't really like the anime. This hack helped me love it.

I Loved the anime and with this game shown in Ash's shoes it is just astounding

5 Pokemon Omega Ruby (Gba)

What there should be download links

I think this is one of the best hacks I played

Foggy Huffington the same thing as a whole new level benefiting from your computer is not a problem for me to do the needful at the end result was the best way to

Apparently does not exist. People just voting because they like the actual 3DS version._.

6 Pokemon Liquid Crystal

Follows the plot of Pokemon crystal but what made me like this hack so much is that it still has the night and day system but in real time by that the time on the computer, phone, and etc. - waterlover

I think it's great I love the new things added as well brings back memories

A very good hack that I have truly had fun with! It add some cool things to the original and add the better motor from firered

Very fluid game, very open world feel. Two things that I have wished to find in a Pokemon game since I was a wee lass.

Also, pro-tip, invest in Ledyba and splurge on a pseudo blot-beam punch TMs

7 Pokemon Eclipse

It has a good plot and graphics. Although I wish more people will know this game more - waterlover

Though I haven't played much of it, I can honestly say this is one of the best games I've played! I mean come on, you get a shinx as a starter! Who doesn't love Shinx?

8 Pokemon Dark Violet

Great hack, amazing story great music... Only bad thing is that it isn't finished but if it were it would definitely be number one

9 Pokemon Dark Cry Pokemon Dark Cry

I love it because you get mew. and it has great graphics. Go, Pokemon Dark Cry!

It so cool that you can see every legendry

10 Pokemon Dark Rising Pokemon Dark Rising

Hard game. But still has a good story. A boy who's in search of his kidnapped father starts a journey to save him alongside his Dragon Pokemon! - ManuelMetal

This should easily be number 1! I've played many other hacks and this one is by far the deepest story line with great graphics and its actually a challenge to beat. The second dark rising is just as great and I can't wait for the third. BEST HACK BY FAR!

Oh my god will this game rip your heart out and stomp on it if you don't level grind your ass off and play very strategically. One of the first Pokemon games that I actually found challenging. 9.5/10

Greatest game ever! For people who can actually defeat it.

The Contenders

11 Pokemon Shiny Gold

Gold was one of the first games I played it just brought me back to my childhood it has a few changes pretty cool

Pokemon shiny gold how do I download it

A more proffesional feeling rom hack with great details, and just enough changes to keep the story interesting and feeling new without straying too far from the original storyline. Also has more of a nostalgic feel than the official Heartgold & Soulsilver games! Doesn't even feel like a hack!

First hack I ever played and it was revolutionary since heart gold wasn't out at the time.

12 Pokemon XYZ

13 Pokemon Snakewood

Probablly the only Zombie Pokemon hack you'll find. That's it, I said ZOMBIES! A brilliant, original idea like that deserves a top 10 place. - ManuelMetal

This ROM hack is insane in a good way. It starts off with zombies, but then it gets weirder. Trust me, you will come out of this experience a changed person. Also, patience and calm is needed.

The only hack I've had interest in to play and finish multiple times! This hack is fare out great if you know what you're doing!

The zombie pokemon idea was amazing

14 Pokemon Fire Red

A funny parody of the FireRed version. Mostly it's script editing but there are several world changes as well. - ManuelMetal

What a funny (albeit inappropriate) game!

Sorry, this was supposed to be Pokemon M.Y.A.S.S. But they've censored it! I know fire red isn't a hack ok? - ManuelMetal

15 Pokemon Ruby Destiny Life of Guardians

Excellent rom hack with great story. The story changes depending on your in-game decisions.

Tons of new Pokemon, amazing storyline, a new map, and everything you could possibly want in a hack, as well as crazy legendaries and possibly the most difficult battles ever faced in Pokemon! (Battling Dark Lugia, the Ruby Destiny, and others are mind-boggling)

Great game with multiple storylines. Very emotional

16 Pokémon Sweet

It's a cute game if you are a curious cat and want a little challenge well this hack is for you it is a great game - waterlover

19 Pokemon Victory Fire

Coolest hack ever that show's mega evolution

Played all kinds of hacks but this is the one I liked the most

Not really that good. doesn't allow catching any Pokemon for a long time, translation is quite a bit off, encounters with other trainers feel weird, and there's barely any information on the internet (movesets, evolutions, availability of Pokemon...) Its playable though.

20 Pokemon Flora Sky

Best best amazing! Love to definitely

It's a must play, in my opinion, but the map is messed up, and there are just a couple of mistakes, but no bugs. Great game.

A really good hack, but sometimes you get lost and don't know where to go next.

I love it because the game is not easy nor hard and it has a great storyline
