'Pokémon MMO 3D' Is A Massive Unreal Engine RPG

'Pokémon MMO 3D' Is A Massive Unreal Engine RPG

If 'Legends: Arceus' has got you craving more Pokémon, this might be just the game for you.

It’s almost been an entire month now since Pokémon Legends: Arceus was released, if you can believe it. For the most part, I think it’s safe to say that most fans have been really happy with the game, which offered a welcome change to the gameplay formula we’ve all become so very used to over the last (almost) 26 years. In our review, our very own James Daly called it “the evolution fans have waited for”, and “a joy to delve into”. 

That said though, one fresh game isn’t going to be enough for everybody when it comes to serving up some of that much-needed variety. And now we’ve been given a taste of something different, it’d be understandable if fans were left craving more content that isn’t just that mainstream, linear format. Well, this fan-project might have just what you’re looking for.

Before we go on, be sure to check out some of our favourite Pokémon Legends: Arceus wins and fails below.

Allow me to introduce you to Pokémon MMO 3D, which is exactly what it says on the tin, in every single way. You begin your adventure in Pallet Town, and after choosing between Squirtle, Charmander, and the correct answer, you set out into the world as a trainer, going round catching all the Pokémon you can find. Take a look at the trailer below.

Of course, the main draw for people here is undoubtably doing to be the MMO part - you’ll be able to encounter other real players on your journey and challenge them to PvP battles. As reported by DSOGaming, there’s apparently also real-time battling available, which sounds really cool.

The latest version of the game has been over two years in the making, so you have to admire the dedication there. As you can see from the trailer though, many assets have been, uh, borrowed from the official games, which might not bode well when it comes to potential copyright strikes. If you’re interested in giving it a go (check out the website here), you might want to do so sooner rather than later, then.
