    Okay, back in my younger years, I was at a swap-meet and found this copy of pokemon green. I remember when I played it that it was horribly translated. Worse than Engrish. Now, I want to find a rom of it because the game can, unfortunately, save. Does anyone know where I can find the horribly translated version of it? I found a youtube video, but there is no link to the ROM.

    Asking for a rom is against the rules, so I hope you're asking for a patch.

    Could always just play Leaf Green, and save yourself the trouble.

    The original Green was slightly different from the North American Pokemon games. It's worth a gander I'd say.

    Not as bad as Pokemon Diamond. I guarantee it, I own it! That game is harder to understand than an irate Japanese man.

    You mean the unoffical one? I don't even see that one related to Pokemon in anyway.

    Aochide stands for Ookido, which seems to be "Orchid".

    At 1:54 MLK is operating a computer.. NES and SNES original japanese versions were called FAMICOM and Super FAMICOM (Family Computer contracted).

    I have a copy of the game, and it's exactly the same as this. It is pretty fun to watch the translation, but the gameplay is fine.

    You can't ask for roms, or you WILL get banned.

    I think this guy's translations are much more hilarious.

    Well, I'm not giving links, only a clue.

    You may find this translation in a GoodGB set. You know, each file has every region ROM [(U), (E)...] and a lot of useful and useless hacks and traslations.

    Ooh, boy, I have a cartridge of this game. What a hilariously horrendous translation! I actually enjoyed playing through it, to be honest.

    I actually recommend giving it a go (or at least the ROM image). After all, it is, in essence, the Green version of Pokemon in English. That means you get all the ugly Pokemon sprites, any exclusive glitches, and all the catch rates of the elusive Green version, in a mildly-discernible form. Very neat from an experimental point of view.

    If anyone has a Pokemon text hacking tool that can edit the text of Pokemon Green, I'll change all the text into proper English...

    And yes, I've checked Whack a Hack and other various places that distribute downloads of pokemon hacking programs, all of which returned no results.
