These are Pokémon hacks for Game Boy Advance
Hacks are versions of the game Pokémon that were not developed by Nintendo but by other players. These are mostly based on certain Pokémon editions and have been modified so that the games contain new items, cards, different music or better skills for the Pokémon.
To play a Pokémon Hack, you need the ROM file of the respective game, which can be found in our list above. The most common one is the GBA (Game Boy Advance) game.
How you can use the Pokémon ROM Hacks
In order to be able to use the ROM files of the hack games, which are mostly available in ips or ups format, you need a suitable patching tool. Which tool is suitable for this depends on which device you want to play on.
To play a Pokémon hack on the Android smartphone, either install a GPS emulator or a GPS patcher app on the device. You can easily download good apps like “My Boy”, “ROM Patcher” or “John GBA” onto your device for free.
If you use a Mac, you can play the hacks using the “MultiPatch patching tool”. The tool is free and available for all devices with macOS 10.7 or later.
Under Windows you can play the hacks either with the “Lunar IPS Patcher” or the “UPS Patcher”.
