Additional Information

Pokemon Radical Red is a GBA ROM Hack by Yuuiii based on Pokemon Fire Red in English. It was last updated on August 3, 2023.


This hack is at its core a difficulty hack with additional features; quite similar to Drayano60’s enhancement hacks, which provide access to nearly all the Pokemon while also adding relevant buffs to make all sorts of different Pokémon and playstyles viable, and with an insane amount of quality of life features added that also make many gruesome tasks far less tedious

This is a collaborative project between me and a friend koala4; while I’ve handled the majority of the technical aspects, he’s been invaluable in balancing, making suggestions, doing the majority of the wild Pokemon locations, testing, and more.


This hack utilizes the Complete FireRed Upgrade engine (!!!!) and Dynamic Pokemon Expansion built by Skeli789, Ghoulslash, and others. It’s responsible for most of the significant features in the hack; I’ll list the important ones below.
