someone's really desperate.

you mad? It's a good ideas since pokemon is good.

Abriael2188d ago

So it's ok to copy every good idea around and never bring out something original. I see :D

I wouldn't call it desperate. It's more like dissappointed.

Gameplay mechanics and systems cannot be copyrighted, so unless they mention pokemon they're fine.

I know nothing of lawsuits and all that copyright stuff, but from what I've seen and heard about the pet combat system, I think Blizzard could possibly even lose a case against Nintendo over this (Pokemon is owned by Nintendo right?).

theres already pokemon clones that play the exact all those varients like digimon and spectral something or other on ds...some disney series...none of which have been sued..

I'm amazed how much it copies Pokemon. Creature battling is nothing new, but they copied it down to the gym leaders. It's pretty ridiculous.

Don't you think that is exacly the point?

Pokemon is complete. It's a simplistic fun game. Almost copied into the Warcraft universe, which has the biggest playerbase on PC.
