    Hey... look at the pretty colors!
    With a little of ASM hack... these guys at Skeetendo did an amazing colorization of the old Game Boy classic.

    The patch comes in two flavors...
    - One with imported Pokemon and Trainer sprites from Gold/Silver
    - One with the original sprites

    Now I have a reason to play this game for the bazillion time :lol:

    The original had colors! 4 of 'em!

    Still, this is pretty neat.

    I seriously might grab one of those GBC smart cards to play this on my GBA SP. Any idea if it's compatible with game linking to original, unaltered Red/Blue/Yellow?

    I'm the one who put this hack together... ya know.
    Anyway something that bothers me is that a lot of people think that Red and Blue could only be played in 4 colors. But when played on a Super Gameboy they have colors just like Pokemon Yellow. Most emulators support this. But it was nowhere near gold/silver/crystal quality color.
    Although I haven't tested it, I'm pretty sure they will link correctly.

    Looks like alot of the work was handled with the G/S/C engine. Cool, but ultimately pointless really. Its not like it was unplayable before.

    Drenn, could you please turn the patched games into a Patch? So that it is legal for us to keep linking to the source (our rules are against the distribution of copyrighted material).

    Thanks!

    It looks like the source was already changed to rhdn, which has the patch instead. But I updated skeetendo's post so you can link there if you want.

    But then again, it still links to the disassembly of Pokemon Red. Make what you will of that.

    What's this? Split disassembly of Pokémon GRBY? Finally! I've been waiting for this…

    Hooray for easier ROM editing…

    Nice looking modification, but… It doesn't top the greatest Pokémon hack… CACTUS.IPS (aka "World Famous Talking Cactus"…
