Super Pika Land
Super Pika Land is a classic ROM mod based on Super Mario Land. Originally released back in 2000, the point of this hack is to mod an already great platform game better by making it star Pokémon! You now play Pikachu, and almost all of the enemies, items and backgrounds have been changed as well. It’s Mario style platforming action set in the Pokémon Universe!
Built on Pokémon Crystal, this massive mod packs in over 20+ hours of gameplay. Featuring Animated Pokemon on Battle Screens, a fully orchestrated soundtrack, and partial Kanto and Johto regions to explore. Plus a bug catching contest, Triple Triad, Slots, and a Touhou style Minigame. There’s also New Custom Starter Pokémon to choose from, Pokémon from gens 1-4, plus 50 new custom Pokémon and evolutions for a grand total of 544!
Based on Pokémon Blue, this mod is not only an improvement of the original game but it includes a few new functionalities and features. It’s basically the same story of Pokémon Blue but with a different protagonist - Kris from Pokemon Crystal! There are three new starters: Jigglypuff, Pikachu, and Vulpix. And there is the introduction of 3 new types from further generations: 'dark', 'steel', and 'fairy-type' have been added to the game, and the Type chart weakness/strength has been updated to match 6th generation on parameters. The Unknown Dungeon has also been updated and now it’s identical to the one from Pokémon Yellow.
This is so much more than a simple graphics mod to add snow. Based on Pokémon Gold, This game takes place the same year as GSC, just later in the year. It assumes that the events of GSC (the radio tower take over, magikarp being forced to evolve, and all that) took place that summer, so the major events will be different, and more winter or holiday themed. Since this is part of the "Johto Legacy", think of this game as something of an "alternate third version", as well as a sequel - sort of like Crystal, Platinum, and Christmas themes all mixed together.
Pokémon Brown is a famous mod of Pokémon Red Version, with its initial version released sometime in the early 2000s and updates released periodically over the last 15 years or so. It completely replaces Kanto with a brand new region (called Rijon), complete with its own story, trainers, gym leaders, and Pokémon distribution, as well as the ability to visit Johto! Early versions only included the first 151 Pokémon, but this edition includes a vastly expanded Pokédex (up to Genera on IV, with a certain special Genera on VI guest star) and other features such as an expanded type chart and additional dungeons. Brown totally revamped the entire game. As a proof of concept, that you could use the Pokémon engine to create your very own game with your own story, Pokémon Brown was effectively genesis. It inspired thousands of people to take up Pokémon modding and was instrumental in the creation of the community that exists today.
