So, I just learned about Pokemon Insurgence. In case you haven't heard about it, it's basically a stand-alone fan-made game that aims to combine everything cool from all of the Pokemon games and expand on them - and I'm pretty freakin' excited about it! 

 

Here's an imgur album with screenshots (the game isn't out yet and they haven't announced a release date): http://imgur.com/a/DpSxz

Just a few facts:

  • It's going to have all 721 Pokemon
  • Mega Evolutions are included
  • Online trading and battling 
  • Built-in challenge modes, including Nuzlocke, Randomizer and Egglocke, etc.
  • Delta Pokemon (from the TCG) will be included in the game
     

A few of my favorite screenshots if you don't wanna look through the imgur album for some reason:

 

Spoiler

 
All the info is fairly new so far, and the only sites I can find with updates are the Wiki (http://pokemoninsurgence.wikia.com/) and the subreddit the game makers put together (http://www.reddit.co...emonInsurgence/). Right now they say it's a "work in progress". 

I haven't played Pokemon Zeta/Omicron (the predecessor to this game), but there's a dedicated fan base and I have a feeling I'm going to be a part of it soon.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates (I'll try to as well) and feel free to share you feelings/any news/whatever thoughts you have about Pokémon Insurgence. :)

It looks cool, but damn that story is pretty edgy and serious.

Yeah, I'm not sure what the story is going to be like at all. Either way I'll play it, I'm too stoked for all the features and it just looks great so far, to me.

 

I'm admittedly pretty excitable.  :funone2:

I'm not sure how I feel about this... I didn't like Pokemon Zeta/Omicron.

@Swarley, oh yeah? I was wondering whether or not to try it out or just wait for Insurgence.

I don't know exactly what I didn't like, but I got very bored right at the start. Maybe it was too slow, since I'm used to play these games on emulators that enable fast mode.

Oh geez, their region better be huge/have multiple regions or else it's gonna be so fucking overcrowded >.> And all of us on the Pokemon V team thought our region would be overcrowded with just "all" 493 in it...

 

I dunno if I'd play this though, not a big fan of fakemons :x I guess they don't find their unofficial Megas and Delta pokes fakemons which is pretty damn silly lmao

Isn't this kind of project going to ensue lawsuits with Pokemon?

How is it any different than your favorite tower defense?

Nope :p There have been millions of Pokemon fangames (both romhacks and RPG Maker projects) and they're all fine. The chances of your project getting C&D'd only gets higher once you start getting money involved with it in someway.

I recall some incident with Pokemon when PTD tried to put Pokemon tower defense on the Google Play Store :/

That's far less of an incident than getting a C&D and/or a lawsuit for your entire project.

Yo, this. My ROM hack pet peeve is when the creators try to do way too much and playing just becomes exhausting.

This project seems like a really nice one! Will definitely check it out when the game is released. I just don't want it to get canned because of a lawsuit or something (which is thankfully unlikely to happen :p)

Yeah like holy crap why would anyone do this?? I understand like "ohhh, if you leave some Pokemon out then people will complain so we better leave every single one in lol" but ughh... I really wouldn't want to try and figure out which Pokemon go in which routes and which ones are only available through special means and all that. It'd be so much work >w> It's better just hearing some people complain than go through all that work

So there's a feature to just generate an egg with whatever pokemon you want. Why bother exhausting so much energy in including all of them in routes and locations when there's the option to just create one instantly?

Also I looked at the screenshots. What a damn edgy game. I swear in the picture where the trainer is getting the Darkrai DNA the player stole it from a dead guy. There's blood on the floor and everything.

I have no doubts this will eventually get shut down if Pokemon International finds it, unfortunately. They are very protective of their copyrights and huge sticklers when it comes to infringement.

 

I know from personal experience because they do constant sweeps of sites like Etsy, Zazzle, and Redbubble, and take down everything related to their copyright.

If they're not trying to sell it, it won't get shut down.

Obviously there are a ton of fan-made things that slip under the radar or don't get found. But if you do then r.i.p. your project.

I'm pretty sure that's the mmo that was charging real money for shit :0 But really, there's nothing to be worried about. This project won't be taken down unless the devs pull some stupid shit >.< Ahhh god I can't remember the name of that project where the guy was remaking gsc using frlg's shit before hgss came out, but that's been around for years, was incredibly popular and that's doing just fine :0 And the older project this dev made is fine, that somehow popular 3D Pokemon game (using a mix of gsc tilesets and dppt sprites) is doing okay, all these seem to be around, and when we put the Pokemon V demo up a few years ago, we got a LOT of downloads and we were fine >w<

There is really nothing to worry about. Unless the devs start asking for money or start doing some sorta sketchy shit, it isn't going down.

Just looked into it a little bit more... looks like it starts to get complicated (in my opinion). I guess I'll just stick to the original ones lol.

I played only two or three Pokemon fanmades, and they were pretty fun but I wasn't one for the overcrowding and the spam and whatnot. I dunno. I'm pretty conflicted about this. :x
