Pokemon Fan Hacks

Pokemon "hacks" are unofficial Pokemon games that fans have modified from the original version. Some are distributed free on the internet while others are actually saved over legitimate games and sold on auction sites or through other physical distribution methods. Even games that are legitimate in all but language can be hacks, the notable example being Pokemon games in Chinese, since the games have never been released in that language. Games in this category are not supported by Nintendo and the Pokemon obtained cannot be legally traded with official games.
