Pokemon Dark Rising Game Description

This hack is Part 1 of a hack series. Within the hack you'll encounter Pokemon from all 5 generations, the newest attacks, and a brand new deep storyline involving many characters with actual emotions compelling them to move forward.

The Story begins in a dream. A Pokemon suddenly appears and chooses you, a young boy/girl, to save not only it, but the world itself. You awake asking yourself questions. Deciding to ignore the dream for now, you step out into your home town known as Fells in the Core Region. Your best friend, who also had the same dream, stops you at the front door to inform you of an emergency message from the town's Professor. When you encounter the professor, he quickly informs you of the disasters and climate changes occurring all over the Core Region. His workers in panic, he asks you to visit the delivery station and pick up a package for him from Prof.Oak. As you set out on this simple task, you encounter a mysterious girl who appears to know knowledge of the dream you've had about a creature name DARUGIS. After receiving the package, a powerful pokemon is within you and your friend, Pete, sight. Eager to test your early skills against a powerful pokemon, you quickly engage in a battle with it. The pokemon uses it's powerful winds, easily defeating your pokemon and knocking you out in the process. After awakening in your room, you see Pete and your mother patiently waiting for your recovery. You soon begin to realize this is the start of a journey into many mysteries and powerful pokemon you can't wait to challenge.


• 386 Pokemon from regions Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, & Unova, all appear
• 8 badges
• Each gym leader has his/her own signature Pokemon that is not obtainable in the hack.
• All Original Characters & Trainers, including some fan favorites from the anime such as: Ash Ketchum, Misty, and Brock. Aside from the anime favorites, Yami Yugi from the YUGIOH Series will also have a short appearance in the hack as a Gym Leader.
• Newer generation moves. Some to note are Shadow Claw, Roost, Scald, & plenty more.
• DW Abilities (Yes that includes the overused fan favorites of Drizzle Poliwag, Drought Vulpix, & Speed Boost Torchic.)
• All Pokemon will learn some of their best egg moves from gen 3-5 by level up instead of breeding. ( Pokedex was used for this information.)
• Inside every pokemon center, there's a Nurse Joy & Doctor Roy. Doctor Roy will be the one to heal your pokemon. Nurse Joy will be next to him and challenge you to a double battle along side Doctor Roy. This is helpful for exp points.

Pokemon Dark Rising Featured Review

Pokemon Dark Rising Review by: gamerforlifefor.. - 8/10

A great game with major glitches
Pokemon Dark Rising is a hack that's known for it's difficulty but is it worth playing? I'll do my best to answer this question for you.

Graphics: This game looks similar to Firered and Leafgreen unfortunately though there are a lot of graphical glitches. One example is when you walk behind a house your character will look like they're standing on top of it when they're not. Another problem is when you enter Professor Ivan's lab if you walk to the left or right the game will freeze. Also some of the characters in the game will cause the game to freeze if you try to talk to them. There are also some people in the game who you can't talk to at all. Fortunately these issues don't appear too often but those glitches should've been fixed there's no excuse for it. For these reasons I have to give the graphics a 5.

Sound: The soundtrack is the same as firered and leafgreen except that the hoenn wild battle theme and the deoxys theme appear in the game as well. For that reason I give the sound a 10.

Story: Out of all the hacks I've played this one in my opinion has the best story. Basically it starts out with Arceus telling you in a dream that the world is in grave danger and a dark entity who you later learn is named Darugis has awakened from it's slumber so it's up to you to save the world from this evil creature. I don't want to spoil the story but the game has plenty of plot twists and it has an outstanding cast of characters including some characters from the anime. Some of the anime characters play an important role in the story. For these reasons I proudly give the story a 10.

Addictiveness: I'd definitely be willing to play this game again because of the amazing storyline but there are other reasons as well. For one thing there are lots of pokemon to catch from the first 5 gens (Kalos was not around when this game was made) so if you wanted to play this over and over again with completely different teams you could. Another thing that makes this game so addictive is the difficulty which I'll get into later. One other thing I love about this game is the fact that you get to choose between 3 dragon type starters which are dratini, bagon, and gible. That gives you another reason to play the game more than once. For those reasons I give addictiveness a 10.

Depth: Before you beat the game your party should be level 100 that should show you how much depth this game has. For completionists there are 386 pokemon to catch and there are some optional things you can do as well. One of those things is towards the end of the game there's a cave where you can catch Kyogre. Also there are some places in the game that you need to get a certain HM in order to completely explore that cave for example. All these things give the game loads of depth therefore I give depth a 10.

Difficulty: One of the reasons I wanted to play this game was because of how difficult I heard it is. One reason this game is so hard is because the some of the trainers are overleveled. One example is Giovanni when you find him your pokemon will probably be somewhere between level 35 and 45. His pokemon are in the 90s YES THE 90s! Fortunately battling him is optional so when you get close to the end you can just fly back there and beat him then. I'd recommend saving frequently in case you run into trouble. But the main reason this game is so hard is because the elite 4 and the champion are way overpowered. Each member of the Elite Four has a level 99 legendary in their party. The champion's party consists of 6 legendaries 4 of which are ubers! In order to beat these behemoths you'll need a brilliant strategy. First I'd recommend spending all your money on items such as Full Restores, Max Potions, Full Heals, and Hyper Potions. I'd also recommend having someone in your party know toxic and if you have a grass type party member you should give it leech seed. Also stat raising moves such as dragon dance are needed. I love a new challenge every once in awhile but letting the champion have 6 legendaries is just ridiculous. For that reason I give the difficulty a 10.

Overall: Pokemon Dark Rising has an incredible storyline, a great soundtrack, an excellent cast of characters, lots of pokemon to catch, and it provides a big challenge. Unfortunately the game has some flaws: for one thing it has some major glitches. Also the elite four and the champion are unfairly hard... If it weren't for these problems (mainly the glitches) I would've given this game a 10 unfortunately I have to give it an 8. Despite the glitches I'd highly recommend this game to any pokemon fan. I hope you enjoyed this review.

 Is it normal that it look like the version we have on Vizzed is not the final one because in my version the starter had 4 moves and there were more good choices to make a team with.

 this game is far better then I expected, I really love how they start out with dragon types, but the battle with the trapinch I found to be a little hard being so close to the beginning.

 this game is so unfair every time im at the end of a route or place then there is some stupid pointless battle for no reason and they don't even heal you
