Pokemon Unbound Download GBA Rom Hack by Skeli based on Pokemon Fire Red in English. It was last updated on November 8, 2022.


Hello, my name is Skeli and this is my only ROM hack. I started ROM hacking seriously in 2016 and have since written various ASM routines, created the Dynamic Pokemon Expansion for FireRed, and developed the Complete FireRed Upgrade together with ghoulslash.
After a long time, I’m proud to announce that Pokemon Unbound is finally finished. There are now two fully functional versions:

  • The first is the main game, a story-driven game with complex puzzles that test the limits of your patience and endurance. Once you’ve completed the main campaign, there’s also a significant amount of post-game content to enjoy in the coming weeks.
  • The second version, called the Battle Frontier Demo, showcases Unbound’s combat engine by providing full access to the Battle Frontier. This version was created in the format of a mobile game, i.e. H. daily rewards, monthly payouts and unlimited playtime. If you enjoy fighting, you’ll find plenty to do with over 100 different possible fighting combinations. For a fair combat experience, I recommend choosing this version over the main game’s Insane difficulty – a difficulty designed for unfair challenges.

With that in mind: Have fun with Pokemon Unbound Download!


Welcome to Borrius, a region rich with history. Centuries ago, the Borrian people were enveloped in a great war with a foreign land. When all seemed lost, the Borrian king summoned a powerful force to help turn the tide of battle. Unfortunately, the war ended in defeat when the king of the foreign land unleashed a devastating weapon. Disgruntled, the Borrian army returned home.

The people, now enraged against the Borrian king, attempted a coup by manipulating the dark force summoned during the war. The Borrian king was able to seal away its power, however, and the coup was thwarted.

Many years later, an organization known simply as the “Shadows” seems bent on releasing the dark force once again. Are they after the destruction of the Borrius region, or is there something else at play? It’s up to you to stand in their way!


  • A Powerful Engine: Pushing the Complete FireRed Upgrade to its maximum potential, Pokemon Unbound contains a custom battle engine on par with Gen 8, as well as many quality of life features that improve the gameplay experience just waiting to be found. Enjoy catching all of your favourite Pokemon, from Gen 1 up to Gen 7, while using all of your favourite moves and abilities from each of these generations!

  • A New HM System: Have access to all of your favourite HMs without the hassle of carrying HM slaves! As long as your Pokemon can learn an HM, they will be able to use it in the overworld, and once you purchase the brand new key item – the ADM in the post-game, enjoy battling with all six Pokemon from your favourite team regardless of the HMs they can learn!
  • Updated Graphics: Sporting Gen 4 graphics in the overworld and Gen 5-esqe interfaces, in addition to a dynamic day and night system, Pokemon Unbound has a brand new, yet familiar feel! You’re not in Kanto anymore!

  • Exciting Mini-Games: Play exciting mini-games such as Cloud Burst, Safari Sniper, and Underground Mining!
  • Challenging Puzzles: Put your brain to the test, and find ways to solve many of the unique and complex puzzles littered throughout Borrius!
