Pokemon ROM hacks!!Watch
I'm in the middle of Fire Red: Rocket Edition and it's amaaaazing. I hope there are more like this one.
And why don't you tend to bother with them? I think some of them are just as good as the older games, if not better. As they can have more creativity in the plot lines and story. Of course its all due to taste and there are loads of types of rom hacks, like silly ones, fan made pokemon, and hacks that are more in line to the original game formula and storyline (ones which might as well be real)
I think it's the one where you're a team rocket or something..
