Meet the Pokémon Brown protagonists!

Our trainers have had a glow up! In the upcoming update to Pokémon Brown, we have a newly redesigned Brown based on his appearance in Pokémon Prism, and a new playable character Beige!

RainbowDevs Archive Launched!

Hello archival enthusiasts! If you’ve ever wanted to download an older version of our games, now you can in one convenient place. We’ve just launched the first phase of the RainbowDevs archive!

For now we have listed every RainbowDevs version of Pokémon Prism, but in the future we hope to expand to the pre-RD versions, as well as archival releases of our other games. We’re also making an effort to archive our data to the Wayback Machine, so should anything happen, you will always have access to a permanent, comprehensive arcive of all our games straight from the source.

Please note: these are old releases for troubleshooting and archival purposes only. They are not stable and have known issues, some serious, that may break or corrupt your sava data. We will not be providing support for these older releases, so, please use at your own risk.

Have fun!
