The Pokedex was handpicked. The philosophy of the design focused on distributing encounters to the player based on the viability of a Pokemon. Each and every Pokemon within Generation 3’s National Dex was discussed and debated with my Twitch chat upon whether or not they were to be included.

The only changes made were to wild Pokemon and static encounters as well as adding NPCs that restrict access to certain areas. The reasoning behind this is to get as close to beating Pokemon Emerald with only bad Pokemon as possible.

The game is optimized for the Nuzlocke challenge and that is in my opinion the most fun way to play it. That being said feel free to enjoy the game in whatever way you like. The balance is also made with the fact in mind that trade evolutions are unavailable, that’s why Onix, Machoke, and Haunter are in the game.


  • Edited encounters to have only bad Pokemon
  • Changed the starters to Slugma, Sunkern and Goldeen
  • Changed static Pokemon encounters
  • Restricted access to certain areas
  • Changed the opening cutscene
