Here’s what a Pokemon game on Wii U could look like

Nintendo has been incredibly resistant to making a mainstream Pokemon game for home consoles, insisting that the formula works best for handheld devices like the Gameboy and Nintendo DS. That hasn’t stopped environmental artist Evan Liaw from creating his own idea of what Pokemon could look like on the Wii U. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Similar Art styles, and Mass Effect uses Unreal Engine.

The first picture looks great. That being said, the rest are a bit too realistic. I think it needs a more Cel-Shaded look especially considering the game would likely be an Open-world MMO.

Ni No Kuni, would be a decent choice of art style, although too anime IMO.

Nintendo designs their games to look clean and value art style of technical graphics, so I expect something cleaner.

Here's some good Unreal Engine examples

Just add better textures like fur, scales, rock, etc... just don't over do it with textures, simple and clean.

I actually thought it was a reskined version of the first few levels from Deus Ex: HR

I would rather see a Pokemon game resemble "Ni No Kuni" moreso than chasing the edge of realism... People should understand that certain art styles and franchises just aren't suited for hyper realism. That doesn't mean that the game can't look amazing. But people this generation seem to associate HD graphics with realism and they aren't the same thing.

Pokemon with realistic graphics would be gruesome.

I've been thinking the same thing. Pokemon Wii U would be a mixture of the first few generations of Pokemon, quests, Ni No Kuni style battles (rather than just turn based which is getting really old now. The Ni No Kuni fighting style is totally more anime style pokemon fighting).

It would be something truly jaw dropping.

No.

I agree with the sentiment, but I think pokemon would work well with near realistic environments especially in regard to lighting and effects (albeit slightly stylised) and then the characters and pokemon can remain i their anime stylings.

I was blown away by this trailer when I first saw it, I would rather this over cell shaded.
