Wii U Needs a Giant Online Game That Takes on the Role of Pokémon

GenGAME writes: "How does Pokémon manage to find such a large audience over and over again? It’s because it combines a deep single-player adventure with fun, socially-driven multiplayer that takes full advantage of today’s wireless and Internet capabilities. It’s because the world of Pokémon is constantly expanding with new monsters, new regions, and new battle techniques that keep players training.

"Even if Nintendo’s having trouble coming up with a revolutionary game for the Wii U GamePad, they’ve always got another untapped option to consider: a deep online experience that does for the home console space what Pokémon does for handhelds." (Pokemon, Wii U)

I can kind of understand the idea that Nintendo wants Pokémon to be social as in people interacting with people directly... but let's be honest. Today, "social" means "online," not just "local play." They already put online battles and trades in...why not an online world, too?

A pokemon mmo would sell about a million wii u's in the first week around the world. Wake up Nintendo, MMO's and the Wii Pad's touch features are a match made in heaven!

Can we stop with this pokemon MMO? Nintendo DOES NOT even have online on most of its console games!!!!

Nintendo will never take that next step which is why the wii u is under powered and selling like crap right now.

SO please stop asking they will never do it.

Pokemon MMO is an idea that only sounds good on paper.
