Pokemon Ash Gray (hack) Cheat Codes for GBA4iOS
Pokemon Ash Gray is one of the best homebrew ROMs out there. Numerous sites including Polygon (and of course PhoneResolve) have even cited it as one of the ROM hacks that Pokemon fans should play. The game is basically the first season of the Pokemon anime in game form. Dedicated fans took it upon themselves to make a Pokemon game based off of the anime since it seemed that Game Freak and Nintendo had no intentions of making one.
There are two ways to play Pokemon Ash Gray on your GBA4iOS emulator. The first option is to patch the Pokemon Ash Gray IPS file to your existing Pokemon FireRed ROM. This doesn’t usually take time considering the files aren’t really that large. Players can also just opt to download the patched version if they’d like to do away with patching the game on their own. Regardless of what option they chose, they’re guaranteed to have a great time playing this game.
Using Parent’s Cheat Codes
Now one of the hallmarks of Pokemon FireRed (Ash Gray’s parent ROM) is the availability of cheats for it. It’s also one of the most critically acclaimed and addictive of the third gen Pokemon games (along with LeafGreen). Another hallmark of the Leaf Green/Fire Red series is their support for cheats. This means that you can still totally use those FireRed Gameshark/Action Replay codes that you wrote down on your notebook for Pokemon Ash Gray. If for some reason you lost them, worry not because we’ve listed down a couple of cheats to get you started!
Note: If you’re wondering why some of these cheat codes look familiar, it’s because these are the same as what you’ll find in our previous articles for Pokemon Dark Rising 1 and Dark Rising 2. It’s also important to note that not all cheats that worked on the Dark Rising series will work on Ash Gray (will expound on this later on).
The Essentials Cheat Codes
Here are a couple of essential cheat codes that you’ll need to enable once you’ve downloaded Pokemon Ash Gray on your iPhone or iPad.
Walk Through Walls
A fun cheat that is especially useful in areas that feature lots of random encounters like caves or tall grass. Once enabled, the player can pass through solid objects like walls and trees to avoid these random encounters as well as to cut down on travel time.
Cheap Items Code
Having the Cheap Items code enabled will allow you to buy items from any Pokemar for only 1 Pokedollar. There are also codes that you can add as separate cheat inputs so that you can buy only one specific item from any Pokemart regardless if that item was originally sold there or not.
Pokemon Encounter Codes Don’t Work
I considered not to include Encounter Codes here thinking that the game is best enjoyed the way it is. Additionally, Pokemon Ash Gray is still in beta (currently 4.2) and isn’t as stable as its parent ROM. I’ve tried using verified Gameshark and CodeBreaker codes to force an encounter with MewTwo which then caused the game to crash. Hopefully we can try out these encounter codes once the ROM hack gets a more stable release.
Whether you plan to use cheats or not, Pokemon Ash Gray is still a fun game to play. If you’ve been raring for a Pokemon game where you can re-live Ash and Pikachu’s story then make sure to play this.
