If you want a ROM hack that has an intricate story and a ton of features, then you might want to check out Pokemon HarvestCraft. It uses Pokemon Ruby as its base, and it has a lot of the same and different things that you would want from a Pokemon game.
If you are familiar with the Harvest Moon games, a farming simulator game, this hack incorporates some elements minus the hardcore focus on farming. There’s even a love mechanic where you can fall in love with another character which is common in the Harvest Moon games.

Pokemon HarvestCraft Details and More
We’ll summarize the story because it’s a bit long. Basically, Pokemon were living free until humans arrived in their area and started building homes. The Trevenant who ruled the Pokemon sought out the help of the Harvest Goddess to get rid of the humans. The Goddess loved one human, and they had a baby. Unfortunately, the Trevenant did not like this, so they trapped the humans and the Goddess in a town. Your character is a resident of the town where you have to uncover the mysteries of everything.
The Pokemon in the game go up to Gen 6, but not all of them are available. The game has a Season system. Every 30 days, the season will change, which adds to the mechanic of the game. Speaking of the Seasons, you cannot plant Berries during Winter. There are also no Gym Leaders in the game. You get Badges by beating the Show Owners. The Trevenant also serves as the Elite Four and Champion for endgame purposes. Then, don’t forget about making another character fall in love with you when you do the right things.
