Hello trainers. The Pokemon ROM hack and fan game community is an ever-growing and dynamic pocket of the Pokemon fandom. Pokemon Radical Red in particular is one of the most popular ROM hacks and its popularity is still growing. This article will go over how to download and install Pokemon Radical Red on an emulator so players can start enjoying Pokemon Firered: Dark Souls Edition.
What is Radical Red?
Pokemon Radical Red is a difficulty hack of Pokemon Firered. The creator, Soupercell, wanted to make a version of the Kanto remake that would give players the ultimate challenge. Players can find all Pokemon from gens 1-8 in the Kanto region, Gym Leaders and other trainers are a lot harder, with Clair taking the place of Giovanni as the 8th gym leader, and more mythical and legendary Pokemon can be found.
It is the most ideal Kanto experience made by a fan for fans. However, it is important to note that it is still in BETA. If there are bugs or parts of the game not added that are in Firered, Players will have to wait for Soupercell to add them. Before installing, players make sure they had VBA on their PCs or Open Emu on their Macs.
Installing Radical Red
Before players can install the RR file, they will need to go to a safe site and download a version 1.0 ROM of Pokemon Firered. This is easy to do on any site. Radical Red’s Pokecommunity page says that the specific ROM should be 1636 squirrels Pokemon Firered. Once you have that, you should scroll down to the patcher provided by the developer. Players should make sure they download the most recent patch. All they have to do then is plug both the ROM and the patch file into the application and presto: Firered is now Radical Red.
Now then, if players are having trouble patching a ROM of Firered, they can download the patched ROM itself. Players can visit romspure.cc and download the hack itself. All they have to do then is have their emulator ready and start. ROMspure.cc is safe and players should not have any trouble with the Radical Red ROM they download from there.
That’s pretty much it. With this how-to guide, players should now know how to download and install Pokemon Radical Red on both PC and Mac. Radical Red goes above and beyond to make the unforgettable region of Kanto a must-play for Pokemon Masters. Arguably, it is one of the best versions of a Pokemon game, even compared to official games. Kanto fans do not want to miss out on this fan-made adventure.
