    I'm curious if there are any ROM hacks of FireRed/LeafGreen that have been remade into the Johto region.

    I'd assume there are one or two out there but haven't been able to find them. I'd love to play through that region again, but the art style of HG/SS is a huge turn off for me (ruins the nostalgia in my opinion)

    Look up Shiny Gold, don't know if it was ever finished since HGSS came out before it was fully completed I think.

    Edit: Do note that it makes some "liberal" changes as well.

    Yup! The best one is Liquid Crystal, it has all of Kanto and Johto completed and has a halfway done Orange Islands post game. Other notable ones are Shiny Gold and Crystal Dust.

    I remember Shiny Gold... was it ever finished? I don't think it was...

    I also recall Liquid Crystal and CrystalDust.

    To be honest, out of all the ones that have been mentioned, I would suggest going for Crystal Dust.
    Even though all of them are not finished, Crystal Dust sure is the most promising and the most well done out of the three.

    Also, it doesn't add any random shit, so that's a plus if you want a fully fledged remastered version of Crystal without fanfic crap plastered all over the place.
    Oh and the guy recently mentioned he was going to work on it again, so maybe the long awaited Beta 3 might be on its way:
