What is Touhoumon
Touhoumon? What is This Devil Speak!?
Hello everyone. I'm Darkskeleton from Pandora's Phoenix and I welcome you to my site if you so choose.
Surely many of you have played or at least heard of a game and anime series called Pokémon. This page is especially for the fans of those Pokémon games who are looking for something a little different. Touhoumon is a cross between Touhou Project and Pokémon. Many coders have taken it upon themselves to edit the original Pokémon games and create their own versions of the system. When people edit games like this, it is referred to as a hack or ROM hack. These hacks have been the source of many fantastic fan made games across the internet. Touhoumon is a hack of Pokemon games that features Touhou Project characters.

Consulting the Touhou Wiki
It'll help you along your way - Trust me!
This place is critical for those who get into the game. It has information on just about every Touhou, in game evolutions, stats, and other information about the game. The Touhous you can catch in each game are relatively consistent and generally are roughly the same as most were based off of the original/official Fire Red version but things may not be 100% in the version you decide to play.

Where to Find Touhoumon
Depending on what version you want to play, there are many different Touhoumon hacks created by many different people. Here's a list of all the ones I could find.
- Touhoumon World Link
Based off of Pokémon Emerald. This version is fairly difficult from what I remember but still well made.
- Touhoumon Another World
Very solid. This game has a lot of customized content. While you can eventually return to the original routes and towns of Pokémon fire red you spend a lot of time in areas that don't even exist in the Pokémon games. This is by far my favorite versio
- Marisa's Magical World
Let's you catch and easily train just about and Touhou in the series. There are easily accessible and repeatable fights at different Touhou levels against several of the main Touhou's in the series (Yes - Touhou characters training Touhou Dolls). I b
- Touhoumon Blue Version
Have not personally played yet but it's in its final version so it should be completely playable
- Touhoumon Ningyougeki (Fire Red)
The official version of the game and the one I am currently working on playing. If you would prefer the original japanese version then you can go to http://loda.jp/touhouningyougeki/ instead.
- Touhoumon Lunatic - Merry Version
Don't know much about this version but could be worth giving a shot anyway.
Pokémon Games - Show your support!
Are you one of the 5 people who somehow haven't played a Pokémon game? Maybe you missed out on a generation or two of the Pokémon franchise? If Touhoumon is your thing then I imagine you are also a big fan of the original Pokémon games. Pick up a copy of the original games to show support to those who initially made Touhoumon a possibility in the first place.
Want to Suffer and Cry Rivers? Now's Your Chance - Introducing Nuzlocke Runs!
The idea of a Nuzlocke run is to play a pokémon or pokémon style game (like Touhoumon!) with a minimal of two handicap rules.
The basic rules are
1. Whenever one of your Touhou/Pokémon faints, it's dead. You must release it (or at least retire it to a PC box) and it is gone forever.
2. You may only catch the first Touhou you encounter in each route. You can only take one Touhou from each city (the first one you acquire essentially)
Trust me... It's a lot more frustrating then it sounds. I tried it in a Pokémon Black run (my first time playing through the game), and I lost everything at the 2nd gym boss.
There's a site for this and a comic series that goes along with it. It's fairly well known among the Pokémon community but there's no reason you can't try it with Touhoumon too. In fact it's probably more hardcore or Touhoumon because most of these games are made by hardcore Japanese enthusiasts. (The original Touhou games are VERY unforgiving. I have yet to beat a single one and get a good ending).
eBay for Pokémon
With games like Pokémon it can be very hard to find many physical copies of the older generations of games. Maybe an eBay seller is selling of his copies at a fair price. Buying used can be a smart choice if you're careful about it.
Darkskeleton's Touhoumon "Official" Let's Play
A let's play at its basic level is a person recording himself playing through any video game and recording commentary (live or in post) over the said gameplay. Some let's players like to do things like picture-in-picture. This is my Touhoumon lets play of the official ROM hack which can give you some idea of what the game is like. Hint: It plays a lot like the original Pokémon games.
