● So Pokemon is.. pretty much a worldwide phonomenon. If you haven't played Pokemon you've either watched it at one point or at the very least seen it at one point or another. That is because Pokemon is one of the most successful gaming and Anime franchises of all time, dating all the way back to 1996.
It has grown so large, they have produced so many versions of the game, so many new seasons of the Anime, and so many animated movies of Pokemon that an MMO should have been all but guaranteed, right?
Wrong. Unfortunately Game Freak - the company behind the Pokemon games have adamantly refused to push through with an MMO for Pokemon - refusing to bring it to an online audience.
While I personally disagree with this as I believe an online Pokemon MMORPG with Game Freak and Nintendo's funding and finesse could make for an amazing MMORPG, I found myself wanting. I want a Pokemon MMORPG. I need a Pokemon MMORPG. Don't you?
Thankfully there have been people online that have taken it upon themselves to try and bring a Pokemon MMO into fruition - most being barely playable or filled with viruses however.
That's fine though as it makes finding the few good Pokemon MMOs out there actually worth it. Fulfilling, even.
There are a few Pokemon MMORPG out there truly worthy of the name. Either due to the fact that they're all round fantastic Pokemon games in and of themselves, or that they're so different that they're entertaining in their own right.
So, in light of this, Stix and I have decided to give you guys a quick rundown of the best Pokemon MMORPGs currently available.
They're the only MMORPGs worth noting and only Pokemon MMO worthy of the name.

Revolution and pokemmo are both made in a way to funnel money into the makers hands and are as such highly suceptable to dmca. I played pokemon 3d which had 0 micro transactions and was purely donations based got a dmca. Pokemon mmo 3d is the only game on this list that isn't in some way pay to win. Revolution was HIGHLY cash shop oriented to the point that they completely removed fly, payday and pickup so you couldn't farm currency. I believe I remembered that they had a buy currency option. Brick bronze..... don't get me started on the amount of microtransactions they had an option to outright buy starters and shinies which is just not cool...
Sadly, the last pokemon game that was mentioned from Roblox called *Pokemon Brick Bronze* was recently banned. Nintendo was really disappointed with this game because most of its features were stolen from the company. Though Roblox is dead, the game was really fun and extremely unique than other games because of its story line. Hope there are other games in the future that carry on the same factors that really made me love *PBB* .
to much defending on the roblox game i get it but still i love project pokemon on roblox but i mean who cares if its good dont defend your self for saying a roblox game is good its ok if its good its good
You didn't include the Pixelmon mod for minecraft which is actually really well made. it actually got so popular that gamefreak contacted the creators and forced them to take it down so finding a download for it is extremely hard...
I'm.. Really glad you posted this. I hadn't really considered playing some MMORPG Poke'mon games, partially because the only fan content I've ever played got taken down (Pixelmon) but this video... Yep, I'm trying it.
there are NO pokemon MMORPG's that are in circulation, and there never have been. only people that created pokemon content either as fans or pirates without the Pokemon Company's full consent. and no i dont approve of this practice. and if you call it a pokemon game when made by someone other than the the Pokemon Company, then you are likely in need of some education, preferrably how to not be a lying, skulking, dumbass who cant understand simple definitions. pay your dues to POKEMON and THEIR BRAND and i have no issue to discuss.
Couple of my close friends and me made his own Pokémon card adventure game for 2-5 players. It took him 2 years and a lot of fixing and editing to do. We play it whenever we go out to card shops to let others play the game. And we got a lot of good feedback. We where thinking about getting the license for it from Pokémon company but they send we need to get back up from a known company first. But are if we are successful we be making only 20% or less profit which doesn’t seem worth it. So now we need to maybe create are own new theme and story to make it work
You think it's still worth starting to play PRO right now even though they say Pokéone is close to being released to the public? I just started playing PRO and I'm liking the game, but don't want to end up investing my time into a game that will be dead after his "sequel" comes out. What do you think?
While I enjoyed a little bit of time in the Online Pokeclone games that I did play. They are not really MMOs. They are more like Diablo, a semi online RPG. If you really want a Pokémon style MMO you would have to go with a indie game that was something like Pokémon but incorporating D&D style gameplay like WoW does.
if they make an official pokemon MMO game then there would be no point to buy the official Bi- yearly releases. They would have to release the new gen in the mmo as payable DLC and they would have no option to improve graphically, or otherwise
I can't say i follow your logic there. Mmo's are always evolving, patches, updates etc. I think a franchise who's previous games have an incredible replay value, couldn't go wrong doing an mmo. Releasing the main games could also be used as an incentive for bored players, basically saying "go play this for a preview of what's to come". Seems like a solid idea to me. Thousands of people still play ESO for example, and others like me are waiting for the next installment in the main games, both audiences are still there.
While this isn’t wrong, maybe they could make an mmo with a battle style like the anime, involving actual action and movement like with Pokken, but the locking it to a 3d battle system with the four moves only lock. That way fighting would be more similar to the anime than the games, so that the main releases could have its own appeal while the mmo is different. To further exemplify the difference, maybe they could make it even more like the anime, in that in order to get certain Pokémon you need to befriend them or go out of your way to find different locations.
Now that I think about it that would make for an awesome game in general, and could just lock it to four player online like Monter Hunter World. That would be cool.
Ishmael true, but remember that each number in the FF franchise is a different story, so they can make multiple different numbers and different formats while using different formulas. You have to admit, every Pokemon title has the same format and formula and the only thing new that each generation brings is it's new Pokemon. So if they made a Pokemon mmo then a full title comes out a year or two layer and everyone moves on to that one then they just made the mmo for no reason.
Nintendo will never release an MMO: it's economically wise to produce drugs with moderate strength to keep drug addicts purchasing the drug for a long time, instead of just producing a strong drug which would kill all clients after one dose.
This strategy is used EVERYWHERE. Better is to train your brain to refuse any system that exploits human brain flaws.
No, MMORPGs just suck, that's why they're not making it. And what you just explained is not a human brain flaw, it's addiction. No one is addicted to Pokémon, people buy it because it's fun. Also, even if they made an MMORPG they could still release new regions and expansions yearly at full price like World of Warcraft. Pokémon style games just don't go well with MMORPGs, look at the horrible MMORPG they made out of Digimon, it's an insult to the franchise. MMORPGs degrade the hell out of characters (You see Digimon/Pokémon running everywhere, they don't feel special anymore), they degrade the story by putting millions of players into the same world and make every single person become a savior to the world (How many saviors are there in a single world?!) and they're just dumbed down like hell in mechanics compared to any single player RPG. Also the original Pokémon game came out way before MMORPGs were popular and took the gaming industry by storm, if they change their whole franchise into an MMORPG cash grab (Like every other MMORPG out there) they'd be killing the most popular franchise in gaming history. If the MMORPG they make is just a spin-off it'd soon be outdated just like Pokémon GO. It's better to keep improving and focusing on different aspects of different regions with new games.
this is like vanilla private servers... more and more lasted.... now we got official vanilla from blizzard... so keep doing pokemon mmorpg until its news are everewhere... spread info about it, make more pokemon mmorpgs
Pokemmo is actually at least as good as PRO imo, why? It has more features than PRO such as Global Trading Link aka GTL, moddable client (you can download mods to make it look better etc) and it doesn't lack Fly, Breeding, double battles and other stuff unlike PRO does. Though we will see when PRO 2.0 comes out, it might be better than PokeMMO.
Getting money on PokeMMO is so easy through 1 mil nothing really I have like 8 mil sitting on my account ill never use lol i get way more excited in PRO when I catch a 6x20 Pokemon with the right nature and if I'm lucky with the hidden ability also which is perfect for pvp dont need no 5x31 or 6x31 if i want that ill just play Pokemon Showdown.
Yeah that's competitive Pokemon, some people like it like that, also you need like 1 million to breed a competitive pokemon in PokeMMO, so instead relying on luck you can breed one but it still consumes a lot time or money, took me 4 days to breed 5x31 one and I bought bunch of 1x31iv pokemons from the market to make it a bit faster too. PokeMMO is more for competitive players and PRO is for more MMO styled gameplay, its just about preference.
And yea PokeOne is interesting, looking forward.
Not PRO 2.0 it's a whole new game because I am currently a tester of the new game its called PokéOne and second breeding is horrible it ruins the PVP aspect of the game because in PokeMMO the pvp is very stale because 90% of the people are using 6x31 and 5x31 pokemon like I don't even have to guess what pokes he has and the ivs because I already know what he has, don't care for moddable client at all because it's not making the core of the game any better fly will be in the new game and so will double and triple battles the flying in the new game is suppose to be like the flying in oras but not yet ready https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5rgBIBJSRc
From a business stand point, I can see why they will never make a Pokemon MMO, you guys also forget Pokemon World Online that's also license by game freak. The Official Pokemon MMO but it's boring as hell overtime, lol.
"you guys also forget Pokemon World Online that's also license by game freak."
Lol, no it's not. They've even been given a Cease and Desist in the past, or at least the web host they were using at the time to host servers received the C&D. The only thing close to a pokemon MMO licensed by The Pokemon Company is Pokemon Go, which is also as you put it 'boring as hell overtime, lol.'
Well first off, MMOs are a dying market. The subscription model turns a lot of people away from playing, a problem that even world of warcraft has. Unfortunately,the subscription model is the best model to use in order to keep servers up and running, as they cost a lot to maintain. They could do what ESO does, and make it a buy once play forever, where item shops are also available to obtain in game items. But, that can go sour depending if they choose to make the game pay to win or make the items purely aesthetics based/items bought don't effect leveling or strength of pokemon, etc. On one hand, if they make it pay to win, the people who can't pay for the super cool strong pokemon/buffs don't play because they can't win, which isn't fun. On the other hand, if it's just aesthetics/non-helpful items being sold, then players aren't as encouraged to buy, or if they do, then they're only going to buy the 3 or 4 that make their avatars/pokemon look cool. After that there's no real money being made and they can't maintain servers much longer, because no money = no servers = no game. Next, being Nintendo, the company that wants to maintain the family friendly image, they'll either have very restricted player communication, which would result in a good chunk of players not playing. Or, they'll have a free chat with a butt ton of moderators watching ever single piece of text being sent back and fourth making sure all of it's family friendly, because if a parent sees their 5 year old child playing a game where people can spout curse words or derogatory terms, etc. Then those parents will most likely keep their children from playing, resulting in less money for Nintendo and a bad mark on their family friendly reputation. So, one way or the other, they lose money and audience members as well as damaging their image. Lastly, as all MMOs have faced in the past, there will be hackers who break the system, either getting passed the chat filters, stealing items from the item shop, using god mode cheats, etc. And being a big company like Nintendo, they'd most definitely be the recipients of such attacks, which is always bad for business, which is in turn bad for making money, which is really the only true goal/motivation for any company ever.
And that is my spiel on the whole why it's a bad business plan for Nintendo to make a MMO.
Oh? Subscription based Pokemon MMORPG with a steady income knowing their fanbase is one of the biggest in the world?
How does that imply a bad business stand point? They're milking as much money as they can from making new pokemon games and what not until they finally come to a dead point in their hike for money, they'll then pull the emergency lever to push out an anime graphic pokemon mmorpg that has better or same graphics as pokemon coliseum on the Wii.
They'll literally make the world stop if they pushed one out and easily become the richest company. Beating world of warcraft in subscribers. You serious?
I think...for a Pokemon MMORPG they should make it like Pokemon Red (normal pokemon gameplay) + mmo functions (chat, party, friends, battle, etc...). Revolution online does that but you know
I know a lot of people have been wanting a very cool 3D pokemon experience like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild but honestly I don't know how that would work. I'm sure it'd be fun but in my mind I can't picture it.
