Pokémon has always been at the forefront of my hobbies. When I was younger, I loved crafting teams for different Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, and really any Trainer that could be designated as a “boss battle.” The idea of creating a game of my own was never really a thing until I played games like Pokémon Unbound (skeli, ghoul), Radical Red (soupercell), and Inclement Emerald (BuffelSalt).

These hacks are among what I consider the best Pokémon experiences. My love for these games centers around a few commonalities: these games all feature a diversity in Pokémon you can obtain, these games are all on a sophisticated, modern battle engine, and – most importantly – they all offer a considerable degree of challenge, further showcased in their brilliant boss battles.

The concept of “boss battles” never really stopped appealing to me, and I knew that after playing these games that I wanted to create my own game as well. Given the vast amount of resources selflessly created by this community (in particular, RHH, DizzyEgg, and PRET), I set out to create a game with a few key principles in mind:

  • Difficult, but fair. On a scale of 1-10, with vanilla being a 1 and Radical Red being a 10, I would say this game sits at a 6.
  • Feature alignment with modern entries in the series
  • Streamlining the player experience


  • Difficulty Related: Set Mode, Level Caps, and Disabled Battle Bag
  • Most Gen 1-8 Pokémon are obtainable, including Hisuian forms
  • Modern Battle Engine, with Fairy-Type, Mega Evolution, Updated Moves, and Physical/Special Split
  • Loads of optional boss battles, with 8 Kanto Gym Leaders, 8 Johto Gym Leaders, and a few miscellaneous bosses who reward valuable items
  • Exp. All
  • Bosses and mid/late game Trainers scale to or relative to your strength, so grinding/overleveling isn’t a factor
  • Updated move animations, courtesy of Skeli and ghoulslash
  • No EVs/IVs/Natures factored into stats
  • 75 TMs, with about 50% vanilla TMs and 50% custom TMs
  • Ghoulslash’s DexNav (12 unique land/5 unique surf/5 unique fishing encounters)
  • PSF’s Quest Menu UI, with 30 Side Quests to Complete
  • Buffel’s Poké Vial implementation
  • Ghoul’s Item Description Headers
  • Badge-Based Poké Marts
  • BW Repel System
  • Unlimited use TMs/Forgettable HMs
  • Nicknaming and Move Relearning in Party Screen
  • Decapitalization
  • Level Grinder to quickly hit Level Cap
  • Linking Cord for most trade related evolutions
  • Post-Game Boss Rush Mode
  • 2.5x Lucky Egg
  • Premier Ball Bonuses
  • No poison damage in the overworld



  • Took all of the graphical improvements from 1.06 and modified Gym Leaders and Trainers to prevent crashing


  • Numerous changes to trainer teams
  • Ten new side quests
  • Slight modifications to the vanilla story (teaming up with Maxie?)
  • A few new TMs
  • small new areas to explore!
