Pokemon Emerald Trashlocke Edition is a GBA Rom Hack based on Pokemon Emerald that packs a challenge for its players!


The Pokedex was chosen by hand. The design strategy centered on spreading encounters to the player based on the viability of a Pokemon. Every Pokemon in Generation 3’s National Dex was discussed and disputed in my Twitch chat about whether or not it should be included.

The only modifications were to wild Pokemon and static encounters, as well as the addition of NPCs that limit access to specific places. The aim behind this is to go as close to beating Pokemon Emerald as possible with just bad Pokemon.

The game is optimized for the Nuzlocke challenge, which is the most enjoyable way to play it in my opinion. That being said, feel free to enjoy the game in any way you see fit. The balance is also designed with trade evolutions in mind, which is 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
