Can anyone recommend any? For those who don't know, pokemon fangames are games made by fans - most often they'll have new story lines, new protagonists and villains, maps and regions, pokemon or graphics. They tend to be either patches or mimic pokemon games' gameplay while being built from scratch (a good base is Poccil's Pokemon Starter Kit on RPGXP). My recommendations: Pokemon Toxic Purple - Probably my favourite game of those I've encountered so far, despite only being a demo at the time of its release and no longer worked on as far as I know. Very unique gameplay - short but well worth it. You play as a team rocket grunt working their way up the ladder by stealing pokemon and completing assignments. The system of getting pokemon really stuck out as great, and the game is just the right amount of challenging - you even start out with a Rattata. Pokemon Flora Sky - Haven't finished playing this one through, but I like it a lot from what I've seen so far. Great graphics, great maps. There are fourth and fifth generation pokemon in this game, and they've been animated well and fit well into their surroundings. Unlike Pokemon Toxic Purple this one is definitively finished, with two versions available; a regular version and one with an alternative pokedex. The hack doesn't seem particularly strong on the story line, but for the most part there aren't horrendous grammar mistakes. This is essentially like another Pokemon game in itself - a new region, though still referred to as Hoenn - all comprised of new maps and things to do. I'm not particularly far through it, but it's entertaining. Well worth a play. Also has its own website with handy things like walkthroughs and pokemon location lists. Pokemon Sienna - Another one I'm playing right now. Another complete game - not as strong on the maps as Flora Sky, but with a more interesting premise. This one is also a whole game of its own; a new region, new maps, some not terrible fakemon (though some of them look horrible, haha). Apparently you can join the evil Team in this one, though I haven't got to that point yet. You can play the game either by opposing them or joining them - so I'm willing to bet it has replay value. Won Hack of the Year on the pokecommunity forums - it seems to have a stronger story line than Flora Sky does. You play as a character just rejected from the Indigo Plateau Trainer School, who decides to journey out on their own as the alternative. So - ever played a good pokemon fan game? Do share.
