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 Creed is a free online Pokémon RPG that you can play inside your browser. It was launched in June 2010 and has regularly been updated and improved since then.
In Pokémon Creed there are different maps you can play on. These maps are styled like the maps you are used to from Gameboys. On these maps you can catch and fights against Pokémon. There are six types of Pokémon available. These are Luminous, Shadow, Cursed, Rainbow, Golden and Normal
Under the Battle tab you can choose between different trainers and gyms to fight against. You can also fight in the Battle Tent. Here you have to choose 3 Pokémon (You can’t keep them). The moves of these Pokémon will be based on your current starter Pokémon, TM moves will be replaced with Double Kick. These 3 Pokémon will be level 30, and so will be your opponents Pokémon. One other cool feature is the Battle Tower. Here you have to fight your way up the tower by defeating a Pokémon as much as you can.
One interesting feature that is still in beta is Live Battles. This means that you can also battle against your friends in Pokémon Creed instead of only computer controlled trainers.
Another interesting feature is the laboratory. In the ‘lab’ you can receive random tasks which you can complete for lab credits. You can use these credits to get special pokeballs that allow you to catch special Pokémon.
If you want to do something else then just fighting and catching Pokémon then you can also participate in all sorts of competitions in the Games Corner. You might even win a cool prize like a Pokémon or money! Or you can check all your rankings . There is a page for trainer rankings, Pokémon rankings, money rankings, coin rankings, etc..
Pokémon Creed has a lot to offer and is certainly worth a try if you are looking for a browser based Pokémon game. It does have a lot of similarities with Pokémon Moon. It’s up to you to decide which game suites you better!
Pokémon Moon is a free online Pokémon RPG. You can play Pokémon Moon inside your browser. The game is completely text-based. This means that there isn’t an interactive map on which you can play with others. You can find Pokémon and gain items and money by mining and exploring different areas.
Pokémon Moon features a battle area. On this page you follow storylines by defeating trainers, gym leaders, etc.
On the legendary areas you can search for legendary Pokémon, catch wild Pokémon and find money and items.
In the minigame center you can play minigames and unlock Pokémon with the minigame points that you have gained.
If you find rocks or Pokémon DNAs then you can use these items to gain Pokémon as well.
You can also battle against other players but these battles are computer controlled, so you don’t actually battle against the player but just against his Pokémon.
There is also a shop in which you can buy items for real money. People who buy these items have an advantage over players who don’t. For example: You can buy a dark ball which is a capturing device that never fails and when the Pokémon is captured, it instantly gains 125 level’s because of the ball.
Pokémon Moon is a text based Pokémon RPG with a lot of features, more than I discussed in this article and a lot of content. If you are looking for an online Pokémon game to play inside your browser, and you don’t mind not having an interactive map, then be sure to check out this game!
