I remember the first time I picked up a Pokemon game and clicked it into my teal Gameboy Color. It started with my rich cousin. You know, you all have that cousin who has all these video games, action figures, toy guns, legos and robots that fold your damn t-shirts and everytime you went over to his house you borrowed like fifteen things that were on
your Christmas list that year, that your parents could never afford. Well one summer, he made the mistake of letting me trade him an Used Earthworm Jim for GBC for a Pokemon Crystal Version W/ Manual and Case, almost brand new. My cousin had started the game and since in order to play the game you had to read and add numbers of stats and stuff he thought it was a dunce. Poor, Poor Cousin…
Anyway that summer, I played that damn thing til the circuits were fried. I’d never really played a RPG before and Pokemon games are excellent first time RPG’s. I finished the whole game with a level 86 Feraligatr and even caught Suicune and Entei. That day when I finished that game I had completely fallen in love with the Pokemon RPG Series.
So the short story would be that I’ve played and finished almost every version on every platform and loved them all. But I have never quite run into a game like Pokemon Flora Sky in my Poke Adventures.
As you should know, Pokemon Flora Sky is not a game you can buy in a store or online at Ebay or Amazon. It is a Hack and a Hack is a ROM that has been modified to play differently than its original version. Therefore in this epic installment of PokeRPGs our good friend Sky from Poke-Mega has created a Pokemon Emerald base hack with new maps, characters and Generation 4 and 5 Pokemon from the DS titles. I’ve played alot of hacks of Pokemon games (which are common because its an easy and popular game to hack). But this hack reaches levels that only Pokefans can dream about.
[SPOILER ALERT] This is really just Pokemon Emerald with new names and faces. The story is virtually the same with an added “Torn World” bit. The map is the same Hoenn region with different names of identical cities and every once in awhile you may come across a path or a cave that is built or looks different that the Emerald version. The characters and Pokemon’s sprites are altered here and there, and the glitches with the save game can make you feel like a citizen on a planet with an fiery asteroid inbound to destroy all your hard work and fun.
The real glory of Flora Sky is capturing a legendary Pokemon Rayquaza or a Latios from the Emerald edition and battling an Arceus or Giratina from Pokemon Diamond or Pearl. OR VICE VERSA. Without Using Internet Trades!!!!! 0.0
