The Ultimate Guide for Pokemon Sors

Pokemon Sors

Creator: Vytron

Progress: Complete

Platform: Game Boy Advance

Hack of: Pokemon Fire Red

Pokemon Sors is another rom hack with an original story and an art style inspired by Pokemon Black and White/HearGold and SoulSilver. This game is part 2 of Vytron’s rom hack series called The VytroVerse (part 1 is Pokemon Saiph). 

It starts off in a whole new region called Hupest. You’ll start your journey from Hupest and your quest will lead you to encounter Pokemon with a new form known as Eclipse. 

Who is This Game For?

You should play this game if you want a Pokemon game with a new story, map, characters, etc.

However, you shouldn’t play this game if you’re looking for a challenging Pokemon game with high difficulty.

Features and Additions

Hupest Region

Pokemon Sors comes with a whole new region for you to explore. Here’s a synopsis of the story by the creator himself: 

300 long years ago, a weird cosmic anomaly took place…

It didn’t look like anything mankind has seen before, but they compared it to a lunar eclipse.

This weird event caused Pokémon all over the Hupest Region to behave unnaturally, violently and even made some change their form…

However, the chaos was put to an end mysteriously, and this event was noted in history books as ‘The Great Eclipse!’

A Custom Soundtrack

There’s a whole new custom soundtrack on this game. I honestly enjoyed most of the beats and songs in here. When someone likes almost all of your 62 new custom songs, consider it a job very well done.  

You can listen to the entire soundtrack of the hack by clicking on the following YouTube link: Pokemon Sors Official Soundtrack

A BW/HGSS-inspired art design

The creator paid a lot of attention to details in Pokemon Sors. All of the new cities are nicely designed and give off a very good vibe. 

The modern cities looked modern and the old cities looked….old. In short, everything looked and felt as it was supposed to. 

Updated Mechanics 

Pokemon Sors has all of the latest mechanics like new moves, Physical/Special split, reusable TMs, modern Repel system, etc. 

Full National Dex 

Rejoice! Pokemon Sors lets you pick and choose all Pokemon until Generation 7. You’ll be getting approximately 758 regular Pokemon and 48 Eclipse Pokemon.  

A new battle mechanic: Eclipsing!

Some Pokemon in this game lose their secondary typing and get a new typing known as Eclipse. It gives them a cool new look and basically rearranges their stats. Some get stronger stats, some get new moves, and some get rid of their 4x type weakness.    

Side Quests 

There are a bunch of side quests in Pokemon Sors. They add more quality and depth to the game as you get to take your eyes off the main story for a bit (and the rewards don’t hurt).  

Soaring

Toward the end of the game, you get the Soaring mechanic. It gives you an aerial view of the Hupest region and allows you to fly towards your destination. 

How to Download

You can directly download the game by clicking on one of the following MediaFire links:

How to Patch the ROM to Play Pokemon Sors

The game creator’s got your back and has provided some documentation on how to patch the rom and successfully play Pokemon Sors.

Windows:

  1. Download NUPS.
  2. Get a clean copy of Pokemon FireRed (Squirrels) rom.
  3. In NUPS, select the .ups patch file, and choose Pokemon FireRed as your rom base (.gba). If you want, you can rename the output file. 
  4. Allow it to finish. Tick “ignore” if it gives an error for not matching.

Android:

  1. Download UniPatcher from Google Play.
  2. Get a clean copy of Pokemon FireRed (Squirrels) rom.
  3. In UniPatcher, select the .ups patch file, and choose Pokemon FireRed as your rom base (.gba). If you want, you can rename the output file. 
  4. Allow it to finish (if you get any errors, try naming the base rom “1636 – Pokemon Fire Red (U)(Squirrels).gba”).

Glitches 

  • Make sure you don’t use the demo’s save file!
  • The PokéMart graphics while shopping can get a bit messy.
  • Rattata shows up while registering new Pokémon (don’t worry, the game registers the correct Pokémon)
  • There are stray pixels in the Lv on the summary screen (barely noticeable)
  • Once you have hopped on Latias for the first time, do not hop off at Inizio Isle as you cannot get away without Soaring (Soaring is only unlocked once you have returned the gem to Solare Island.)
  • The text box on the TM Selection screen is a bit weird visually.
