Want the pinacle of Nuzlocke challenge? A guide for the extreme Hardcode mode can be found here.

Difficulty & Bosses

Be prepared for a real challenge in Radical Red! Bosses have max IVs with proper EV spreads and optimized movesets/hold items, and you'll face tough team compositions and unfair obstacles. The battle style is forced to Set, and you won't be able to access your bag against Gym Leaders and other select bosses. Additionally, there's a soft level cap based on the next boss, which prevents you from overleveling your Pokémon and encourages you to re-evaluate your team and strategy to defeat them.

You can find a guide for all of the boss fightsbelow to help you beat this difficult challenge.

☠️ Hardcore Mode

This is the most challenging mode in Radical Red for players who want an extreme challenge. This guide details the Boss teams for Hardcode Mode so that you don't get caught off guard.

You can check out the insane teams of Hardcore mode over at the Radical Red Hardcore guide page.

❤️ Easy Mode

While still being more difficult than FireRed, Easy Mode is the most accessible way to play Radical Red. It provides a challenge but is designed for players who want a less intense experience.

New Boss Mechanics

Bosses in Radical Red have some new tricks up their sleeves. Some optional side bosses will have their levels scale according to your team, while bosses near the end of the game will randomly choose between one of three teams. Gym Leaders have access to Mega Evolution before you do, and Elite Four Members each have a Legendary Pokémon.

Pokémon Buffs and Changes

Swathes of deserving Pokémon have been patched & iproved to make them more viable, as well as adding back Megas Evolution! These changes may include type changes, stat changes, ability changes, and additional learnsets. You'll also encounter brand new abilities, amove moves exclusive to this game.

Everyone's favourite feature is back in Radical Red, allowing a Pokémon to follow you around as you travel through the game. To enable this feature speak with the Tamer in the Viridian City Pokémon Center who will ask if you want the first Pokémon in your party to follow you. The feature can be disabled or re-enabled by speaking with the same Tamer. It's important to note that the feature may be buggy, so it's recommended to disable and re-enable it periodically to avoid any issues.
