Another well-known playthrough is the one by Twitch Plays Pokémon. These bootlegs had numerous bugs that the real games did not have, such as the inability to load a save file properly. Possibly the most well-known bootleg „Pokémon” games are the notorious Pokémon Diamond and Jade (not to be confused with the official Generation IV games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl). With the release of easy-to-use hacking tools for the core series games, there are thousands of ROM Hacks available. What follows is a few notable examples, each with a brief explanation.

Moreover, you can catch and train Pokémon from such areas as Hoenn, Kanto, Sinnoh, and Johto. Pokémon Light Platinum is an excellent ROM hack of Pokémon Ruby. What makes it distinct from the original game even at first glance is edited graphics, but that is not the only change.

You can apply UPS patches to GBA ROMs to translate the ROM’s language or to change the color scheme from monochrome to full color. A special patching tool is used to patch GBA ROMs with UPS patches. You need a clean ROM to apply the patch, meaning a ROM with not other altercations made to it.

95% of those games aren’t even SNES games, so of course they won’t load with Canoe.

Nintendo Switch: Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! Edition

There are about a dozen games that use FLASH512_V133, which isn’t supported by my patcher. Gbata doesn’t support these either, and I haven’t found a GBA ROM patcher that does. But as all 11 ROMs are of the 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 variety, I’m not too concerned about V133. Choose the file and the folder where you want to save your patched ROM.
