Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies: Everything You Need to Know

Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies

Creator: Dragonfly

Progress: Complete Demo 

Platform: GBA

Hack of: Pokemon Emerald

Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies is a fanmade Pokemon game brought to you by a German team! The game is a hack of Pokemon Emerald but the story, characters, graphics, music, etc. are new. 

It was previously in Alpha for a long time. But now they’ve finally released the Beta version. 

Who is This Game For?  

You should play this game if you’re tired of the same old storylines and graphics of the original games. 

However, I don’t recommend playing this game if you’re just looking for an Emerald rom hack with increased difficulty.

Features and Additions

New Story

Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies story is completely different from the original game. Here’s the synopsis: 

The balance of a world is about to be shaken. While the mighty Guardians of Amitec can no longer leave their stronghold, the Sacred Shards of Celestis are stolen by the cold hands of Team Tundra. Find out what this is all about, and how a simple coach suddenly carries the fate of a world, in this unique adventure!

All Pokemon up to Generation 7

The game may be a hack of Pokemon Emerald but that doesn’t mean you can only use Pokemon up to Generation 3. 

In Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies, you can catch all Pokémon up to Generation 7 and make a team that is truly unbeatable. 

New Graphics

The game developers took years to fully complete this game but the results speak for themselves. This game has one of the most beautiful-looking graphics I’ve seen on a rom hack.  

The developers gave it their all and produced completely new designs, tilesets, OWs, interfaces, and sprites.

New Music

The story and graphics aren’t the only things that are new. The developers also went on to compose new music for Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies. 

Difficulty Levels

Want to decide on the game difficulty by yourself? Then you’re in luck. In Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies, you can set the difficulty level on your own. 

Day and Night System

I’ve never really cared about the whole Day and Night system in Pokemon games. But it’s always a welcome addition. 

In Pokemon Sovereign of the Skies, the combat backgrounds and Pokémon will change depending on the time of day.
