Note From Author: It’s been nearly a year since the version 1.1.4 release! I took a long break from this hack and have been wanting to get back to fix up a few bugs here and there. Naturally, I got distracted and ended up adding a ton of new things. But I hope you guys will appreciate the changes. Many thanks to everyone who gave feedback on earlier versions of the hack, I appreciate your time and effort playing!

Intro:

Pokémon Aquamarine is a FireRed ROM hack that takes place in Manta, an entirely new region based off the coast of South America. The player character mysteriously transforms into a Mew and embarks on a journey as a Pokémon trainer to discover how to revert to human form. Aquamarine has been in development since 2014, and Version 1.0.0 was released in October 2019. As of Beta version 2.0.2, the ROM hack is fully playable. If anyone finds any bugs, please let me know!
