I made a ROMHack for Fire Red.
This ROMHack is based on roguelike fire red by JPAN .
Thank you so much to JPAN, I never would have figured out permadeath on my own.
This is regular Fire Red but with a few twists: fainted pokemon are gone forever and pokeballs aren’t sold in shops, they can only be picked up on the map. Also save has been replaced with a “save and quit” and your save is erased whenever it’s loaded. So you can only save between play sessions; no soft resetting. Lastly whiting out = GAME OVER and the save is erased.
I’ve only tested up to misty so far but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. If you do notice a bug please let me know though.
