  1. Why it doesnt work on my nokia asha 206 it said failed to load images

    • Your Nokia asha is a old

    • Its a passionate game

  2. Can you download this on my cloud fone

  3. Dennis does pokemon games can only be played on touch screen phones?

    • Yes they work without a touchscreen.

  4. Not working on nokia 2690 when i press the start it say “failed to load file”

  5. Can u added some new generation pokemon game? Like BW Or RUBY for nokia asha 501?

    • Can uadded some new generation pokemon geme? Like BW Or RUBI for mito fentesy tablet 📱

    • No, your tablet probably runs Android. There are over 1 million games in the Play. There should be a Play app on your tablet that you can use to download them.

      This site is owners of feature phones that run Java ME who have few sources of apps that are compatible with their phones.

  6. Why I can’t download pokemon red in my Nokia 6230i. It says “not enough phone memory to download file”. Please help me.

    • The Nokia 6230i can’t install apps larger than 300 KB, Pokemon Red is 641 KB so it’s not compatible with that phone.

  7. Yeah. 2 of them

    • I just tried the game on a Rumor Reflex, I couldn’t find a suspend key but I was able to save the game by:
      pressing the Start (9) key,
      choosing Save,
      pressing the A (Enter) key, choosing Yes, and pressing the A (Enter) key.

      An then I exited the game by pressing the Home key and choosing exit.

      Then I restarted the game, pressed A (Enter) a few times to get past the title screens and choose Continue, pressed A (Enter) twice and the game restarted at the saved place.

  8. I have an lg rumor reflex so there is no soft keys

    • What if you don’t use full screen. Are there on screen keys?

  9. What if youre in full screen mode?

    • The keys still work in full-screen mode. On most phones the right soft key is suspend, on others pressing the left soft key or menu key will either suspend or give you a menu with suspend as one of the options.

  10. How do you save the game? I save it in the game but when I exit and come back later it is gone.

    • Use the “Suspend” and “Resume” menu options.

  11. Special Info:
    if you want to cut trees, you need to have these things.
    1) Cascade Badge (Cerulean City)
    2) HM01 Cut (Located on S.S Anne)
    3) A pokemon that can learn cut (Ex: Bulbasaur,Oddish)
    Go to start, choose the pokemon menu, choose the pokemon that has cut, choose cut,
    voila! You can cut trees (:

  12. Smaller screen= Faster game (:

  13. yea, works on mine.

  14. hey seth just to let you know that pokemon red does work on lg rumor reflex because i have 1 myself and it works

  15. What about lg rumor reflex

    • I don’t have that phone. If you do try out and let us all know of out works.

  16. i am using the sanyo juno and for some reason none of my buttons work to cut trees… :(( i have gotten so far in this game and i rly want to figure this out..yes ive reset the buttons also used default buttons

  17. Canyou put a new pokemon game on here please?for some reason this is the only site i have been able to download games to my phone(juno).i really appreciate the ones you have posted but have played through most.

  18. Could you upload a pokemon emeral emulator uploaded or fix the half body glitch and make it a little faster. Its really slow on my incognito
