Nice. Well done, even if its not the best Pokemon game.

I bet a Pokemon MMO/Wii U game would even sell consoles though...

I mean imagine it.

Pokemon World - Wii U title
Starts with Kanto/Johto. You can choose where to begin, either in Johto or Kanto.

Story is different depending on where you start.

Combat like it is in the anime where you control your pokemon, dodging, avoiding attacks while choosing what ability to use.

Quests that allowed you to gain pokedex entries on the rarest of pokemon.

Quests that had you fighting Team Rocket and so forth.

And furthermore, they can add expansions which adds more of this and new regions.

It could be a fresh start for the pokemon franchise. Handheld games can still continue. Maybe new regions and pokemon could debut on handheld and come to Wii U years later maybe.

I'd buy a Wii U for that and I hate the Wii U.

hopefully game freak is trollin along their trolley cart when they said no pokemon game for wii u. why wouldnt they? it would move them shits out the store.

I dont think it would, I think nintendo would ruin it...they can't even handle a proper multiplayer network let alone a mmo, hell even pokemon y and x multiplayer is garbage...cant actual dual with your own pokemon? Lame

Kran1618d ago

Maybe it'll force them to learn. All or nothing situation.

It doesn't even have to be an MMO. Maybe a bit like Skyrim, only it's Pokemon :P

What? You can duel with your pokemon. It's all you can duel with. O.o

4 million for an RPG that doesn't have death, dark, souls, dragon or devil in the name is pretty good.

Kran1617d ago

Grand Theft Auto doesn't have any of those words, and it sold well over 11 million in that time.

I wonder about the budget for this game and the profit. This is like GTA for Nintendo XD

They don't need 3rd publishers... They just need Pokemon, Mario & Zelda :3

WeAreLegion1618d ago

It just sucks that they know that. :/

TopDudeMan1618d ago (Edited 1618d ago )

No surprises there. By christmas, this is easily making 10 million.

Also, off subject, this is totally my game of the year.

GreenRanger1618d ago

With all the money that Nintendo make from this franchise, you'd think they would put some work into the painfully predictable copy/paste stories of each game.

LordDhampire1618d ago

Nintendo needs to drop the console game and start publishing these games on ps3 and 360, mak3 bank...or just publish on wii u then make them on other consoles like 8 months later

darren_poolies1618d ago

No, that would be stupid of them.

KonsoruMasuta1618d ago

1: The 3DS isn't a console.

2: Even if it was, it would be dumb to drop it. It's selling like hotcakes.

Playing Pokemon for the story is like playing chess for the comfy seats, or watching Hot Fuzz for its touching love scenes.

Isn't being a good game, with a deep roster of playable characters, competitive balance, a unified aesthetic, a fleshed-out world, and a great level of polish enjoyable on its own?

I think the fanbase between Pokemon and GTA must be the same. Playing GTA Online last week the servers were always packed, had trouble getting online etc etc. Pokemon comes out and the servers are noticeably emptier... are all GTA fans secretly Pokemon Masters?!
