Finally a Pokemon MMO?

 

Despite years of fan requests to turn the Pokémon series into a full MMORPG experience, Game Freak and Nintendo have stuck to a more traditional model. Surprisingly, Pokémon MMO shows how it can be done.

Built off the game engine of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the fan-created Pokémon MMO project gives players access to a re-imagined world where hundreds of active trainers can play at once.

Just like the original games, the core gameplay elements are retained, although the MMO engine lets a lot of things happen simultaneously in the background, such as battling and in-game chat sessions with other players.

Here’s some other features that make the game such a massive, yet fluid, PC undertaking:

  • Drag-and-drop menus
  • Non-collusive avatars and Pokemon
  • Multi-user server support
  • “Locked” PvP Pokémon battles

Earlier last weekend, it was released on YouTube a trailer showing off the game in action. You can see  it below
