Where is our Pokemon MMORPG? - Tweex the Gaming Geek

"In 1996, a man by the name of Satoshi Tajiri created an idea that would go on to be one of the most recognizable and largest franchises on the planet. I’m talking about none other than Pokemon. It’s rumored that Pikachu is the second most recognized video game character falling just short of Mario’s fame. What a legacy the series has produced...."

Honestly, as much as I loved the Pokemon games, these days it's the same thing over and over and I can barely bring myself to play through Pearl despite having it for so long.

A Pokemon MMO would be freaking amazing. In fact, it doesn't even have to be an MMO, so long as they do an open world 3D Pokemon game. That would absolutely be a day one buy for me, even if I had to buy a Wii U or a 3DS lol.

Tell me about it. I wouldn't camp out for many games, but by god, I would for a Pokemon MMO!

For the MMO it would be awesome considering you could take boats and stuff to other regions to catch different kinds. Have like 4 regions to start with, then add more as expansions.

The thing is Nintendo doesn't have a platform that can handle a MMO. Maybe Wii U?

Sure it could, just as long as it kept everything as sprites...which would be kind of cool. Not say it wouldn't be a development nightmare but it could be done. It would be much easier to just venture into PC gaming, but seeing as Nintendo is all about exclusivity I doubt we'll be looking at that anytime soon.

Even in sprites, Nintendo's online play isn't good enough. They said, They would fix it for Wii U so that's why I'm thinking if Nintendo is going to do a game like this I'd be on Wii U.

I would like an all out pokemon game for the Wii U. I've been wanting something like it for years and I really hope it comes soon!

Been a long to see that original pokemon logo.

The ONLY way that I would even "think" about playing Pokemon again is with an MMORPG. So tired of the infinitely recycled Pokemon RPGs that Nintendo keeps making.

im pretty a wii u version is being set up behind the scenes like that dragon quest wii u game.

lol I bet half if not most of the commenters calling the Pokemon games recycled didn't even play past Gen 2.

A Pokemon MMO would be a stroke of genius if you're account was accesible from later generation consoles, or even handhelds. It could easily rival WoW, with or without a subscription fee.
