Pokemon Elysium is a GBA ROM Hack by BlKaiser based on Pokemon Fire Red. It is now available to download in English and It was last updated on January 30, 2024.

  • Creator: BlKaiser
  • Version: 2.0 in Two Parts
  • Hack of: FireRed
  • Updated: January 30, 2024


This is a Fire Red hack that focuses on lore and is intended for casual players. It was created several years ago and has had continual content additions and repairs till recently. As a result, don’t expect current features. It can take a long time, especially if you investigate everything and take up different side tasks. The game is separated into two sections, A and B. To move from Part A to Part B, you’ll need to use save states (full instructions may be found below in the “Playing Part B” section).

The story is divided into a prologue, four chapters, and a brief epilogue. In terms of difficulty, it presents a bigger challenge than typical Pokémon games, however most players should have no trouble finishing it.

Playing Part B

To continue the story in Part B, you must utilize your most recent save file (saving state) as prompted by the game. You may need to rename or relocate a file to a different folder depending on your emulator.

In terms of plot, after boarding the S.S. CHALLENGER, you must transition to the new ROM. This should happen after you’ve collected all eight badges and competed in the first few rounds of the Battle Colosseum championship.


This game recounts the adventures of a 16-year-old girl from the tranquil island of Crysta. Her ambition is to become a Pokémon Champion, competing for one of the coveted eight spots in the finals held on the mystical island of Elysium. Little does she realize that an ancient malignant spirit is orchestrating a centuries-old plot that threatens not only her and her companions, but the entire globe.


  • A mix of Pokemon, moves, and types up until Pokémon X and Y. Gen I, II, and III mostly but there’s a good number of Pokémon from the next generations like Hippopotas, Garchomp, or Galvantula (Check the online Excel file for the full list of obtainable Pokémon)
  • Fairy Type-Pokémon & Moves (replacing old ones)
  • Physical-Special Split
  • A very few story-only related fakemon and fake moves
  • Several Regions to explore.
  • Side quests that reward you with rare Pokémon, moves, or special items.
  • This game comprises two parts, namely the Main Game (A) and the Finale (B).

The Main Game takes place mostly in the Rhea region, which acts as the game’s core center, as well as a lesser territory known as Savahnn. This segment of the plot includes Chapters 1–3 of the novel. The prologue, on the other hand, takes place on the beautiful island of Crysta.

The game’s climax takes place mostly in several significant places, including the mystical island of Elysium, onboard a cruise ship, and a group of islands known as the Therian Islands. This section is crucial to Chapter 4 of the story.

What to do

  • Use save states to preserve your progress instead of relying on the game’s built-in save function. This method allows you to transfer your progress to Part B seamlessly. (In Visual Boy Advance, you can achieve this by pressing SHIFT+F1 to save an instance as a .sgm file)
  • For an added challenge, consider switching the Battle Style to “SET.”

What NOT to do

  • Don’t get hung up on completing the Pokédex. You can’t catch all the Pokémon, the focus of this ROM Hack is the story.
  • Do not release Pokémon that were given to you for obvious story reasons, as this may lead to the game being soft-locked. Only release Pokémon that you have personally caught using a Poké Ball.

Known Issues/Bugs

  1. A minor graphical glitch may appear in the menu, but it does not impact gameplay.
  2. Be cautious when inspecting the ‘Agent Card’ item, which is obtainable through a side mission, as it has the potential to crash the game. Note that this item is available for purchase only.
  3. There’s a risk of encountering a softlock at a specific juncture in the game if you release a Lapras before obtaining the HM Surf.
  4. In extremely rare instances, the player sprite might experience unexpected distortion. This can be swiftly resolved by entering or exiting a building or cave or by using the FLY ability. Efforts have been made to address this issue, but there remains a slight chance of encountering it.

Please be mindful that there may be occasional spelling or language errors within the game, as English is not the creator’s native language.
