Ever wondered what happens when you take Pokémon and combine them with impossibly cute anime girls? Well, you'd get Moemon. ''Moemon'' (short for "Moekko Monsters") is a ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' [[GameMod romhack]] of [[VideoGame/PokemonFireRedAndLeafGreen FireRed]] that replaces all of the {{Mon}}s with {{Moe}} [[MoeAnthropomorphism gijinka]]. While requiring several downloadable patches to work correctly on an emulator, there is no real plot change, the entire game is simply moe personifications of Pokémon, which would obviously contribute to the popularity of the hack. Other hacks, such as one of [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyandSapphire Emerald]] emerged after the original [=FireRed=] hack, however, the original is the most well known and referenced on sites such as Bulbapedia. The Emerald hack also has it's fair share of problems, which would border on EarlyInstallmentWeirdness if it was the first installment. Many of the tropes that pertain to the original game this is hacked from also pertain here, and can be viewed on the original game's page. The game is still given some focus, as patches are released to update sprites and such, giving it improvements much like DLC does for any other game. Unfortunately, at least for the fans the game has, Moemon is currently only limited to GBA ROM hacks of [=FireRed=] and Emerald, no DS hacks such as the Sinnoh and Johto remakes have been shown to be in production at all.

Notably, there are many more installments for the Moemon in Japanese than in English, and many of them haven't been converted to English yet, such as updated sprites and the like, but some people are working on getting these through for English speaking players to enjoy.

!! Tropes pertaining to the game:
* AdaptationDistillation: In a way. Many players have known to enjoy Moemon even more than the original [=FireRed=].
* ApatheticCitizens: This is standard for Pokemon, especially given the whole Team Rocket fiasco, but taken to new levels here in that no one sees any problem with capturing cute little girls to do battle. Of course, the players don't care either, but you'd expect a reaction.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Carrying over from the actual games the [=ROMs=] were hacked from, there is a code which uses Spinda's personality value to generate exactly 4,294,967,296 (give or take) different variations of Spinda, or double that number if Shiny Spinda are considered different variations.
* DownloadableContent: An additional [=FireRed=] [[http://www.mediafire.com/?e33aep6v9dp79xp patch]] is in the works, by Youtube User oOMikuMikuOo. It will contain updated sprites for all the Pokemon, and the sprites on the menu are updated as well. This patch does ''not'' work on the Emerald hack, patching it in this manner results in a major GameBreakingBug.
** This makes it the only known Pokemon game to change all sprites within a "generation", if one counts the [=FireRed=] and Emerald hacks as "Generation III" like the original games they're based off of.
* GameMod
* GottaCatchThemAll: It's Pokemon, so this is to be expected, but, given how ''absolutely adorable'' every Moemon is, you ''will'' want to catch them all.
* OneGameForThePriceOfTwo: Would be difficult, considering it's a romhack, and thankfully this was averted. The starters and even Eevee are catchable, making it easier to obtain all Pokémon.
* UpdatedRerelease: With the original being a hack of Pokemon ''[=FireRed=]'', it manages to be this ''twice'', albeit unofficial. While ''[=FireRed=]'' was a remake, it could count as a stretch, and Moemon manages to replace all the Pokemon with ginjika, therefore making this game an updated rerelease ''of'' a rerelease. Try not to think about it too much.
* XMeetsY: Franchise/{{Pokemon}} meets Moe Culture.
!! Tropes pertaining to the Moemon:
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Not counting ''every single Pokemon on the list'', this version's Jynx is...rather adorable, compared to the other
* AmbiguouslyBrown: After the additional patch that updated the sprites was released, several Pokemon such as Jynx and Onix now qualify. It's very much a JustifiedTrope for Jynx, who now looks like what she is based on, ganguro (''ガングロ face-black''), a fashion trend in Japan.
* BadassAdorable: Every single 'mon.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Aside from moe-ifying the mons, one could interpret the whole game as girls cosplaying
* CuteMonsterGirl
** CuteGhostGirl: The Ghastly and Shuppet lines. Duskull as well. With Duskclops, this is ''entirely and completely averted''.
** CatGirl: The Meowth and Skitty lines.
** {{Plant Pe|rson}}ople: Any Grass-type, but the Oddish line, being based partially off Mandrake are the most notable.
** LittleBitBeastly: All others that don't fit specific subtropes are here.
** SnakePeople: The Ekans line.
** OurDragonsAreDifferent: The Dratini line. You wish your dragons were as adorable as this.
** OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Any of the fishgirls, honestly. Gorebyss however plays the common image fairly straight.
* [[BishonenLine Bishoujo Line]]: The premise of the entire series, super powered creatures becoming humanoid. However, this is a trait that is most notable in Emerald Moemon, as when they evolve, the mons take on more humanoid forms. In contrast, Kirlia takes a step ''backwards'' over the line. While commonly accepted by the fanbase as one of the sexiest Pokemon short of Loppunny, it's Moemon forms as Ralts and Kirlia are very adorable...then when it evolves, it's simply a regular Gardevoir. The latest patch, thankfully, fixes this.
* CombatTentacles: What composes Tentacool and Tentacruel's hair...
* DarkerAndEdgier: People are enslaving cute little girls and keeping them in portable prisons, only looking after them when they wish now.
* DiscOneNuke / MagikarpPower: Everyone's favourite Magikarp > Gyarados, of course.
* DudeLooksLikeALady - Many of the Moemon hacks (especially earlier ones) don't bother adjusting gender ratios.
* ElementalPowers / ElementalAbsorption / ElementalRockPaperScissors: It's Pokemon, so naturally, it comes with the territory.
** AnIcePerson: Ice-types.
** BigCreepyCrawlies: Bug-types.
** BlowYouAway / {{Flight}}: The Flying-type Pokemon, usually all based on birds, and the majority are half Normal-type.
** CharlesAtlasSuperpower: All Fighting-types would fit this.
** CastingAShadow / CombatPragmatist: Dark-type Pokemon and their moves.
** DishingOutDirt: Rock and Ground-type Pokemon.
** ExtraOreDinary: The Steel-type Pokemon.
** GreenThumb: Obviously Grass-type Pokemon.
** InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
** MakingASplash / [[ElementalAbsorption Water Absorption]]: The Water-types. The later trope applies to 'mons with [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Water Absorb]].
** NonElemental: Normal-types.
** PlayingWithFire / FeedItWithFire: Any of the Fire-types. The latter trope applies to any 'mon with Flash Fire, who power up when hit with Fire type moves.
** {{Poisonous P|erson}}okemon: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Poison-types]]. Muk is notably a WalkingWasteLand...not that the [[GameplayAndStorySegregation game will show that]].
** PsychicPowers: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Psychic-type Pokemon]].
** ShockAndAwe / EnergyAbsorption: Electric-types. The latter trope applies to Electric-types with the Volt Absorb ability.
** SoulPower: Ghost-type Pokemon.
* {{Expy}}/IdenticalStranger: Rapidash looks similar to Cassidy from the Pokemon anime for some reason here.
* {{Fanservice}}: Going by the design of each Moemon, especially with the most recent patch, this is definitely in play here.
* FieryRedhead: The Charmander line certainly inspires this.
* FlowerInHerHair: The effect that moe-ifying them has on some Pokemon. Most grass types could qualify
* [[ActionGirl Hot Chick With A Sword]]: The Cubone line and Farfetch'd have this look about them here.
* FlyingOnACloud: Altaria.
* KillerRabbit: Most fully evolved Pokemon, but Mewtwo takes the cake.
* LovecraftLite: Even the scarier mons are as adorable as hell.
* LittleMissBadass: Pretty much the player's entire team, despite the fact that all of the [[DudeLooksLikeALady males appear female]].
* {{Meganekko}}: Parasect.
* MoeAnthropomorphism
* PettingZooPeople: Played with in regards to the Hoenn hack, which have more animal features than the original 151.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Due to the designs, each moemon is pretty much this.
* PantyShot: Delibird after the additional patch.
* PoweredArmor: Due to a few changes in design, several 'mons appear to have this.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Occurs with quite a few of the Moemon, even ones you'd expect to have milder eye colours.
* {{Retcon}}: With the additional patch that updates sprites, a few Pokemon appearances were retconned, with skin darkening a few shades.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Even moreso than the actual Pokemon, this game is ''made of it''.
* SailorFuku: After the patch that updates the sprites, many of the Moemon, particularly Vulpix and Sneasel, wear these.
* SexySantaDress: Delibird after the additional patch.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Numerous species, but Vaporeon certainly takes the cake in terms of looks.
* StockAnimalBehavior: Seel and Shellder usually have their tongues hanging out
* SuperHumanTrafficking: Pretty much this entire game in a nutshell. Gets really noticeable when it comes to trading Pokemon. That's not even the worst of it, the worst is Team Rocket, who specializes in selling Pokemon, especially rare ones, and sells quite a few at the Game Corner. That's it, Red! Go buy your Humans!
** SlaveRace / ServantRace: What the Pokemon seem to be in this game.
*** HappinessInSlavery: Given that the Happiness feature still exists in this game, this applies.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: A variation, since the ROM hacks have only gotten up to Hoenn, meaning any Pokemon introduced after Generation III technically don't "exist".
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: You're capturing little girls in portable prisons. Neither you nor the {{NPC}}s are bound to care.
