  • Hack of: Pokemon Y
  • Version: V1.1 (Completed)

Pokemon Challenge Y 3ds: I actually liked Pokemon X and Y. Really enjoyed the stunning visuals, such as the overworld and battle visuals. Really enjoyed the nice-looking routes and the fact that there was virtually every single Pokemon present in those games. However, two main things were obviously ruining the experience of the game, the lackluster story and the difficulty of the game. Since script editing for 3ds games is still in development, I decided to make the battles harder. And I hope they are in this hack. (Description by Author)
