Pokemonium – It’s Pokenet revived!!

25/07/2012

It’s been a while since Pokenet, a very promising new pokemon mmorpg, got shut down. But they didn’t leave us empty handed. They gave the source code of their game away so that anyone who wanted to could use and adapt it the way they wanted to. This is how Pokemonium was born. The developers of Pokemonium have taken the source code of Pokenet and have been developing it to provide an even better online pokemon experience!

The game is still in development but beta versions are released over time and are free to download and play. Beware though that beta means you might encounter bugs during your playtime, so be sure to use their community forums for help when something goes wrong. You should also know that any progress you make in the game during beta will be wiped when the game is released. All characters and accounts will be wiped at the final launch of Pokemonium.

Pokémon Mystery Universe

Pokémon Mystery Universe is a non-profit Pokémon MMORPG game. PMU is still under development but the game is provided with a good amount of features to play in.

In PMU you don’t play as a trainer, but as a Pokémon. The gameplay is similar to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon. You can join a team, explore dungeons, get unique Pokémon or even decorate your house.

Plot:

After a catastrophic disaster that spans centuries ago …
Prepare yourself – once again – for one of the biggest Pokémon surprises ever, as the hidden world of Pokémon lures in a human trainer! Turning YOU into a Pokémon that can understand the languages of all 493!
But this time, your stay isn’t all fun and games – as your perilous journey takes you through snowy mountains, dense forests and across fields of rumbling thunder and molten lava!
A change that would come as a surprise to anyone – waking up as a human trapped in a Pokémon’s body – things take a turn for the worst at your first encounter of Team Psy, whose intentions are far from good! From then on – there’s no turning back from your fate as an explorer!
With the help of newfound friends, and a rather lenient Eevee – you’d best prepare yourself for an adventure that will span across the ages, and truly unravel the mysterious history of Pokémon Mystery Universe!

Features:

  • recruiting and evolving Pokémon
  • weather effects
  • Pokémon can be afflicted with status ailments
  • mission system
  • Players are able to skin the GUI
  • Players get a free house to decorate
  • held item system similar to PMD’s
  • Party system
  • Belly system
  • unique dungeons

The current situation

24/07/2011

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated PokéMMO, so now it is time to see what has become of each pokemon mmorpg. I am wondering if these pokemon games have grown into real MMORPG games and i’m hoping to find some new beautiful projects! I’ll make a list of games that have been released, games that are being developed and games that ceased to exist so you can easily look up the status of every project.

I regret to tell you that some cool projects have ceased to exist. I even read that some of them, namely Pokenet and Pokémon Crater, were closed by Nintendo, which is very concerning news. But luckily there are still  a lot of projects up and running, and even a few in development and soon to be released. In the next weeks I will post more info on these games to keep you all informed.

Please post a comment if I forgot a Pokemon MMORPG game!
