Play Pokemon Fire Ash on Mac with Parallels (virtualized)

The easiest way to play Pokemon Fire Ash on a Mac is through Parallels, which allows you to virtualize a Windows machine on Macs. The setup is very easy and it works for Apple Silicon Macs as well as for older Intel-based Macs.

Parallels supports the latest version of DirectX and OpenGL, allowing you to play the latest PC games on any Mac. The latest version of DirectX is up to 20% faster.

Our favorite feature of Parallels Desktop is that when you turn off your virtual machine, all the unused disk space gets returned to your main OS, thus minimizing resource waste (which used to be a problem with virtualization).

🕹 Editor's notes

The Pokemon Fire Ash is a game that is based on the Pokemon animation and was created by fans in 2015. The game features all the 6 Gen Pokemon characters and much more. Let us take a look at some of them.


  • Pikachu is always by your side.
  • Generation 5-7 facilities available for use.
  • Mega Evolutions.
  • Over 800 Pokemon characters.
  • Travel through multiple regions.

The star of this game is Ash Ketchum, who is on a journey to capture all the legendary pokemons. In this long journey from Kanto to Alola, Ash comes across many adventures and pokemons. The journey also covers the Battle Frontier and Orange Islands adventure.

To download the game, I went to the website and clicked on the download link. It was a simple process. However, if you click on the download icon, it does not work.

When I played the game, everything was going well until I noticed that there was a major flaw in the dialogue. It doesn’t mirror the dialogue that is in the anime. It doesn’t have to be a hundred percent similar since it is a fan-made game, but the dialogues lack a big deal.

The music in the game also needs to incorporate some of the anime soundtracks for specific parts of the game.

In the other games, you can only go to the routes where the story leads you, but Pokemon Ash Gray allows players to take their own course. It has also made Pokemon with Ground type a little vulnerable to electric attacks, making it easier to defeat Brock.

Some people find Ash Gray a little similar to Gen 1 Yellow as Pikachu is the only starter and follows behind everywhere you go, with Jesse and James appearing too. This game is basically a remake of the original Pokemon FireRed game.

Dedicated Pokemon gamers consider Ash Gray to be one of the best Pokemon games available. The developers put in a lot of hard work and effort to create this game and integrated many new ideas.
