I have to try this out! I've been wanting a Pokemon MMO since forever :D
princejb134  +   978d ago
i wonder how long it will last
i remember a few years ago some fans made a pokemon mmo and nintendo shut them down
TheFinalEpisode  +   978d ago
I just played it and deleted it right away, it's a glitch fest. It's still Beta so hopefully one day it'll be playable.
WeskerChildReborned  +   977d ago
Same here.

Nintendo lawyers will probably hit this project with a cease and desist
ceballos77mx  +   978d ago
Nintendo should get this on the wii U, the fans want it and should secure more sales
azshorty2003  +   978d ago
That would be great. But what's inevitably going to happen is they'll shut this down and that will be the end of it.
ceballos77mx  +   978d ago
Unfortunately you're right, hopefully work with this team to move it over to the wii U
Oh_Yeah  +   977d ago
bethesda would be the best dev to make a pokemon game for wii u. thatd be awesome if nintendo actually hit them up.
ceballos77mx  +   977d ago
Not a bad idea, but Bethesda would be better for a legend of Zelda, that would make me get a wii U
Oh_Yeah  +   977d ago
either way, im sure there'll be some good exclusive rpg's on the wii u,the wii had monster hunter (not counting portables), the last story, and xeno blades which i missed out on...im banking that the wii u will have even more quality rpgs and with hd, tvii, exclusives, a controller you can take on the dumper with you, and a 300$ starting price. seems like its going to be a great console imo.

Bethesda aren't good for much at the moment...
vork77  +   977d ago
yup and with the wiiu pad it should make battle alot more fun
KillerPwned  +   978d ago
If Nintendo scored this project they would make so much fucking money off it. I would buy this right away.
Farsendor1  +   978d ago
be cool select trainers from different towns so you can use different starter pokemon,choose to be apart of team rocket, and other professions.
ThatDamnGeordie  +   978d ago
already tried this months ago and its pretty shit..... just being honest :/.
r21  +   978d ago
Sadly, this will result in it being closed down like those other fan made games :C Its still a cool idea though, maybe Nintendo will hire these for an official Pokemon MMO :I
Griffin4871  +   978d ago
And it's all thanks to N4G whores for publicizing it.
r21  +   978d ago
Yeah, it was under the radar. The only way it'll stay low is online game journalists dont talk bout it. I predict future articles are gonna spring up regarding this subject.
Baka-akaB  +   977d ago
You are dreaming if you believe Nintendo didnt notice this before it was even submitted here .
TrevorPhillips  +   978d ago
Agree if you want to see a Pokemon MMO for the Wii U. I know I want to see it happen :D
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   977d ago
Staff editor at HipHopGamerShow ehh? Yeah we don't take kindly to your type around here. And just a tip, never ask for agrees, that's just stupid.
TrevorPhillips  +   977d ago
Don't work for the site anymore brother, I have important things to do now, uni soon, working soon and all and relax man, just really happy that they created this pokemon mmo game and as for the bottom person, same thing applies to you. God bless you both.
cpayne93  +   977d ago
What is this youtube? Don't ask for agrees...
Nercay  +   978d ago
Oh my, is this legit?
Scenarist  +   978d ago
gotta try this
tigertron  +   978d ago
I might actually check this out, I've always wanted a Pokémon MMO, but I'm sure Nintendo will shut it down soon...:(
Blastoise  +   978d ago
Its me!

Also, a heads up to people downloading the link from Mediafire, according to Norton its "malicious"

MySwordIsHeavenly  +   978d ago
Thank you. :)

Also, why are you using Norton?
Blastoise  +   978d ago
Why not lol, iv always found it more reliable than the free ones
Getowned  +   977d ago
Norton is a lot better now a days, I agree it's better than free ones.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   977d ago
Avast and Malware Bytes still have much better reviews from CNET and various other sites this year.

Norton takes up way too much memory and doesn't do the job quite as well.
ninjahunter  +   977d ago
Lol, Nortons pretty good at blocking viruses, but its a bit of a hog. Real Pc master race elites done need antivirus XD
NoFanboyRequired  +   977d ago
AVG free is the way to go. I've never liked Norton due to it being a resource hog.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   978d ago
Most fan-made Pokemon games are terrible, including the MMO that was around for awhile. It was shut down by Nintendo, however, so I'm not sure what makes these people think things will be different...
Trunkz Jr  +   977d ago
Just enjoy it while its here :P
wnek9  +   977d ago
i one day hope there will be a remake of pokemon red in full 3d behind the back with graphics equivalent to the wii u zelda tech demo and when u go to the cities they are huge. and you can battle with friends online.

or all the regions where u take planes from one region to the other!.

shit they can even celshade it to look like the anime
Lockon  +   977d ago
I lol'd when i seen the first gym leader in violet city had 6 pokemon...the first being a level 15 murkrow. Wtf is this extreme edition?
Are_The_MaDNess  +   977d ago
this is Horrible, you guys are better off with PokeMMO instead.
it uses the Roms from the games and it got most of the Kanto stuff in there with little bugs.
it is getting updated Weekly as well we bug fixes and new stuff and support.
and there is all ways lots of players online at all times.

and since its taking all its data from the original Roms, everything will be as it was (mostly)

and they plan to add the other maps as well, but they want everything to be perfect in Kanto first.

oh and checkout their Track record (there is alot of patches:

I have no idea why this is an article for this making it out to be something awesome and new.... pokemmo is much better and works XD
Are_The_MaDNess  +   977d ago
i agree, PokeMMO works much better and they have ad it out since at least April.

ok i can see that the one in the Article got two of the maps, but the 30 sec i tried it (seriously) i had no story scripts when i exited Pallet town (where is Oak telling me its dangerous to go out in the Grass), i could even walk over the Fences both ways, there was no animations in the Grass, the music was off. i could prob. find lots of more things to complain about in this MMO.
but the thing is, PokeMMO all this, and its working. and it got a huge playerbase.

im not saying its perfect (its not), its missing some few story scripts, Attack animations and so on, but they are adding all that stuff every week almost.
john2  +   977d ago
@Are_The_MaDNess: PokeMMO requires the ROMs (normally, you should own them and not download them illegaly). This is a free-to-play project. Yeap, gotta agree that it's still in beta but it has potential ;)
Are_The_MaDNess  +   977d ago
there is many ways to get Roms, you can own the Game (payed for it and such) and you can rip it yourself with an USB dongle. or you can all ways download them of some torrent site, and since you already payed for it i don't see the problem doing so.

but you can all ways be a Pirate aswell. not that i really care

+ on the PokeMMO site they and i quote:
4. Locate a compatible ROM (That you have the legal right to use) and put it in the /roms/ folder of the extracted client.
Current Required Compatible ROMS: Fire Red v1.0 USA
Current Optional Compatible ROMS: HeartGold, SoulSilver (Will be used for graphical upgrades)
We will not supply you with the roms, or help you find them as they are copyrighted.

Cue the cease-and-desist letter from Nintendo in 3...2...1...
explicitbaron  +   977d ago
this sounds awesome. This game needs a designated site to get more people interested instead of just a message board.
MasterD919  +   977d ago
All of the Pokemon games that have come out over the years (and still are) and Nintendo still hasn't done an open-world MMO game. Leave it up to the fans to show Nintendo what they want.

It's so simple..take the original Gameboy games, translate them into this gen with new features and graphics, and viola!
