Hello, I'm a Pokemon Rom hacker from China. I hope to share with you a Pokemon Rom hack I'm making. First of all, there is no complete version or release for the time being. This post is only for the publicity and communication of a game. (The game language is all Chinese, and the English translation will be considered after the game is completed.)
Post from Reddit
Post from Project pokemon


Pokémon Dream Ruby has been produced for more than two years since the beginning (I admit I have been lazy in the production process,hahaha ). During this period, the production speed of the game has become slower and slower due to the continuous increase of revision technology and interesting ideas.
At first, I didn't want to make the Rom hack. I just unpacked, modified, packaged the game and achieved success. With the production of the game, I began to strive for excellence. With the continuous planning of the game, the time required for production is also increasing. (The models in the Rom Hack will not be publicly shared until I complete the production of the game, so it may not be good news for some people. Of course, if it's about the game or simple information related to the Rom hack I am happy to discuss the problem. My experience comes from the research and summary of various materials shared by Rom hackers on the Internet and their production process. I can't write tools. I just flexibly combine the advantages of various tools, so I thank all tool editors.)
① The difficulty of the game will increase greatly, and it is not suitable for novices or players who like to play with Nuzlocke rules. At the same time, players who use Pkhex or cheat excessively are not welcome.

② Replace some pokemon with self-made pokemon, and because the ability value of some pokemon is too high, players can't get them normally in the game, so players can not achieve the achievement of full map capture. (for example, the Shadow pokemon are the pokemon that players cannot obtain, while the leader pokemon are the pokemon that players can obtain, but the evolution method will not directly tell players that they need to obtain information in the conversation of NPCs in the game).

③ New NPCs, such as the new Shitenno, the new Gym Leaders, the new champion and other characters that do not exist in ORAS or even in Pokemon.(The text of the dialog and name class is adjusted accordingly)

④ Double heroine setting (Yeah, there is no hero, only two lovely heroines). This setting is only out of my personal preference. I can only say sorry for friends who want to use the hero.

⑥ Modification of BGM in game.(Most from YGO)

⑤ Starter pokemon, move, Personal stats, Shiny rate and most of the contents that Pk3ds can modify.

⑦New game save location

Some of the models in ② and ③ are the RE modification and made of the models shared by Rom hackers on the network. The list will be sorted out and thanked when the game is officially released.( But in part, it may be difficult to find the source because the material sharers have been publishing for a long time.)

New Starter pokemon,I'm going to add another self-made evolutionary form to them.



Add XY protagonists who exist in the original game but have not been used as battle ready NPCs






Kris is is modified from model in the Post
The figure model of the black haired heroine is modified from Bust May Mod.

Shadow mega Mewtwo is modified from model in the Post.(There are too many page numbers. I can't find which page it is.)

Ash Greninja is modified from mode made by Mixeli.

Try to fix the reflection on the water

The general process of the game is not much different from that of ORAS, but it will become different due to the addition of various elements. We can simply think that this is a different ORAS world.
Sometimes I share some test videos and new character model pictures in the process of revision and production.

The custom pokemon in the Rom hack are mainly divided into normal, shadow and leader pokemon.


The Rom hack is still working in progress and incomplete. This post just hope more people have expectations for this game, at least it makes me feel that what I do is meaningful. Your support and encouragement is my motivation to update! Welcome your valuable comments.


The game is still making, and I hope to get more people's support.


Finally, thank you for reading. I hope you like this growing Rom hack, I will be really happy if you could post to me.( The speed of game making is very slwo. because I'm lazy, hahaha)

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.

  • mr_switch @ mr_switch:
    Not exactly 3D but the colors does pops out more
  • mr_switch @ mr_switch:
    I just want a true dark mode theme
    for OLED Switch
  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    yeah honestly i hate how the only two switch theme options are blinding holy light of god or grey
  • El_Doot @ El_Doot:
    Kill eyes OR bore eyes to death
  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    switch dark mode is ok i just wish it was a bit darker
