Pokemon Sun Red GBA: An ALOLA NEW way to play Fire Red! Catch classic Gen I & II Pokemon as well as Gen VII Alolan Pokemon in Kanto in a unique take on the Fire Red formula.
In the Author’s words
I wanted to experiment with Alolan Pokemon while also making them my own and possibly resolving some minor issues with their attributes. As a result, the Pokemon SUN RED hack for Fire Red was created. Choose from Litten, Rowlet, or Popplio as your Pokemon partner.
Like many other hacks, almost every Pokemon from Gen I and II can be caught, but I wanted to keep it to those two generations to avoid drawing attention away from the Classic Fire Red gameplay. Because there weren’t many Hoenn Pokemon in the original Fire Red, I replaced all of them with Alolan Pokemon.
Rather than make a completely new game or add every Pokemon, the experience of SUN RED was mostly to have a more intimate and diverse group of Pokemon that you can use throughout the game. This is not a difficulty hack or anything, it’s just a fun new way to play Fire Red with the ability to use Alolan Pokemon, catch them, and freely switch between Alolan and Kanto forms (with the right item).
That being said there are quite a few changes to the standard Fire Red with a complete overhaul of almost every Pokemon. There are also over 400 new moves added with updated move effects as well. I wanted a lot of my favorite Pokemon to be more viable or have a cool signature move so movesets have been changed quite a bit. However, I still tried to keep things balanced as best I could, just to make it fun (there aren’t really any brokenly powerful moves).
Minor type changes have been implemented and evolution methods have been changed for several Pokes including trade evolutions. A full list of changes can be read in the ChangeLog.
As for why Hoenn Pokemon were removed from this Hack, I have been making an Emerald Hack that is very similar to this though it only includes Sinnoh and Kalos Pokemon that will accompany the Hoenn Pokemon (So Gen IV, VI, and III while Gen I and II are excluded. I chose those Pokes for the same reason as I chose Alolan Pokemon for this hack, I simply don’t have a 3DS and do not plan on getting one so I can’t play with X and Y Pokemon.
