About Generation 3 Double Battles

Generation 3 doubles battles are distinctive when compared to later generations of double battles. In particular, starting from generation 4, there is a significant mechanical difference that fundamentally changes how doubles battles are played.

One unique feature of Generation 3 doubles battles is that it is the only generation with double battles and no physical special split. Additionally, spread moves like Hyper Voice deal only 50% damage instead of 75% in future generations. However, moves that hit all Pokemon on the field, such as Earthquake and Explosion, have no spread reduction, making them particularly powerful.

Moreover, when a Pokemon faints in generation 3 double battles, another Pokemon is switched into battle immediately, which opens up interesting strategies. For example, if you knock out one of the opponent’s Pokemon, they may switch to another that you can now attack before it gets a chance to attack you. In ideal scenarios, you can even get the legendary four-mon kill in just one turn.

Speed control is also different in generation 3 compared to future generations, as it does not have Trick Room or Tailwind. This makes moves like Icy Wind and weather-setting moves particularly effective. Additionally, Swift Swim and Chlorophyll can be used to achieve a discount Tailwind, which can be quite fun.

Lastly, in generation 3, held berries are consumed at the end of the turn, which means that you can hit a Pokemon twice and kill it before it consumes its Sitrus Berry. In future generations, the Sitrus Berry could be consumed between hits, allowing the Pokemon to survive both hits.


To sum it up, generation 3 double battles are fascinating due to their unique vanilla mechanics. However, there are no hacks available that allow players to explore all of the unique features. This is where Doubles Fire Red comes in.

Doubles Fire Red is designed to provide players with an opportunity to experience the distinctive world of generation 3 doubles within the Kanto region. The hack allows players to choose from all non-legendary Pokemon from generations 1-3 to build their ultimate doubles team. Moreover, all Pokemon have had their level-up move sets adjusted to allow them to learn any generation 3 egg, tutor, or event moves that players might want to add.

Additionally, learnsets have been tweaked to reflect that doubles is the primary game mode instead of singles. This means that trainers also have new teams that create more engaging double battles. Players will encounter powerful boss fights against gym leaders and rivals, and all trainers use the champion AI to ensure more consistent behavior and interesting fights.


  • Every single trainer battle is now a double battle.
  • All trainers have had improved teams and ai to allow for more engaging battles.
  • All non-legendary Pokémon from gens 1-3 are available to catch.
  • All Pokémon have been distributed in a way that gives every Pokémon an opportunity to shine at some point in the game.
  • All Pokémon have had enhanced level-up move sets to give them access to any of the legal generation 3 egg, tutor, and event moves via level-up.
  • Pokemarts and hidden items have been adjusted to allow for more interesting team composition through the use of held items.
  • Rare Candies are purchase able in pokemarts.
  • Move Relearner no longer requires mushrooms.
  • Brand new in-game trades.
  • All move tutors are re-usable.
  • Adjusted level curve

TLDR: Doubles Fire Red changes all trainer battles to challenging double battles using Pokémon from gens 1-3. The unique mechanics of Gen 3 doubles are preserved to allow you to experience this very special metagame.



This patch aims to fix various balance issues and adds various quality of life changes.

Most notably it has added various adjustment to Brock Split for people nuzlocking with Charmander to make that more consistent if you do not get Mankey, Sunkern, or Psyduck as any of your encounters.
