I agree. I have not touched Pokemon since Ruby. It's gotten old and repetitive and even with the new deep storyline, it's not going to be enough. Gamefreak says they want to bring older gamers into the game. Well, making an MMO is the way to do it. Dragon Quest has done it and is doing well.
Too late WoW MoP already beat them to it. LOL At least according to the "WoW-Been playing since vanilla-crowd"... Personally, I would love Nintendo to try an MMO. I wonder what they would come up with. Pokemon would be profitable BUT I have always wanted a HYRULE (Zelda) MMO.
There shouldn't even be an article; The headline was good enough
Exactly. This had been discussed for Years. There's like to no reason as to why there hasn't been an mmo for Pokemon, except for Nintendo's hardware limitations. But now with the WiiU, and Especially with the touch screen, it would be the perfect home for a Pokemon mmo. I can just imagine how great it would be to have the fight on screen in 3D and have the fighting/item management on the touch screen.
Just give us Pokepark II - replace controllable pokemon with controllable player, add in trainers and towns, trainer battles can be like pokemon stadium. This can be easily possible on the Wii-U, and would be amazing if they added Online Battles/Tournaments, etc, even manual control of throwing the Pokeball making it harder to capture would make catching even more satisfying.
I'd buy the crap out of a pokemon mmo. It might the best idea for an mmo ever (except eve online, but that didn't go like I'd have wanted it to)
a pokemon mmo would be my first mmo game
Theres a kinda unofficial pokemon MMO where you play online on maps from GBA games. My lil brother's playing and it works ok i guess. Unfortunately, Nintendo will most likely shut it down soon :L
Nintendo is wasting Pokemon on stupid handhelds when it has so much more potential to be amazing on a console.
The only good MMO in the future would have to be a completely new Franchise/ IP. That way , they aren't limited to having to fit anything in, they can start fresh and create their own world.
