What is Pokémon Odyssey?

Pokémon Odyssey is a ROM hack of Pokémon Fire Red that focuses more on dungeon crawling. The creator, PacoScarso_ and TeamEchoes, lists the Pokémon series, Made in Abyss, and Etrian Odyssey as inspirations for the ROM. You play as Nyx, an adventure that descends into a mysterious labyrinth.

Players can expect a new story and region, a focus on double battles, rebalancing of Pokémon, mining, gathering, and a new quest system. There are also no gym leaders or Elite 4 that normal Pokémon games have. Instead, players are encouraged to explore and discover the secrets of the Yggdrasil Labyrinth.

Please note that you download an emulator and ROM hacks at your own risk. You run the chance of downloading a virus or running into legal trouble with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company. Be sure to review your local area's regulations regarding emulation before proceeding. Also, remember that Pokémon Odyssey could be issued a takedown and removed altogether.
