PokeMMO is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) that combines multiple Pokemon games into one unified experience. It allows players to explore regions from Pokemon games like FireRed, Emerald, Platinum, HeartGold/SoulSilver, and the required Black/White.

PokeMMO is popular because it brings classic Pokemon games into an MMO format, allowing players to interact, trade, and battle. The game has seen tremendous interest from iOS users who want to play on their iPhones and iPads.

While PokeMMO does not have an official iOS app, it can be sideloaded onto iOS devices using third party apps like AltStore or Sideloadly. So, let me show you how to get PokeMMO running on your iPhone or iPad.


Before we get started, make sure your iOS device meets the following requirements:

  • Running iOS 16 or later
  • Have AltStore or Sideloadly installed
  • Enable developer mode on your device
  • Have the PokeMMO IPA file
  • Have the required ROMs

AltStore and Sideloadly allow you to install apps not approved by the App Store. Enable developer mode in Settings => Privacy & Security.

You’ll also need to acquire the ROM files for the Pokemon games legally. PokeMMO requires the Black/White ROM, while the others provide additional content.

  2. Go to Settings => Client Management
  3. Tap “Select File” and choose the Pokemon ROMs from your device storage
