Weirdness: Could This Be The Pokémon FPS That Nintendo Fans Have Always Wanted?

Posted by Liam Doolan

Perhaps not, but it looks like a proper hoot

Hot off the tail of the downright bizarre Super Nintendog comes more Nintendo-themed insanity. Make of it what you will, but the following video showcases Ash Ketchum running, driving, flying and shooting (often all at the same time) his way around an environment that looks like a 3D version of Safari Zone.

Backed by a slightly annoying fast tempo beat, you can watch on as Ash sets his sights on a strangely motionless Charizard, shoots Poké Balls from his assault rifle, launches himself into the sky with some sort of bungie-cord device, drives around in a Safari-like four-wheel drive and bounces off giant Pidgy and Rattata just because he can.

There is a bit of foul language in the title at the beginning — so consider yourself warned — but apart from that, it’s wild ride from start to finish and is pretty amusing to boot. So stop reading, pump the volume and get this one playing on loop or something to help celebrate what you can never officially have.

That was really sloppy. It seems to br more of a tech demo than anything even remotely enjoyable.

Also, Pokémon FPS? Last time I noticed, people were mindlessly demanding a Pokémon MMO...

So this is what happens when you put Pokemon, Attack on Titan and COD into a blender.

Those meows were really random...actually thought it was my cat doing it.

That looked horribly slapped together.

I don't think we ever wanted an FPS. What we want is a 3D adventure on a home console or an MMO... that would also be nice as a 3D adventure

This author needs to educate himself about Pokémon fans. Pokémon fans don't want an FPS, they want a full RPG Pokémon game for console.

Pfft, rookie journalists.

@Dark-Link73 I originally had a line in this article about what Pokémon fans really wanted (a Pokémon MMO), but it was removed by powers above during the editing phase.

@Liam_Doolan If that's the case then the "powers above" need to get off their desks and in the field once again so that they can see what people really want.

They are WAY too big for a pokemon game. And I have always wanted t catch Pokémon, not put rounds into them.



AshFoxX said:

@PvtOttobot Hey, that flash game is actually pretty fun, though it would be better with an intelligent control scheme. Pokemon mod for it would be pretty sweet, especially if it had gamepad support. BTW, I'm refusing to watch the video as just looking at the pic is making my brain hurt.

Watched 20 seconds, the video stopped loading after that anyways...>.>

Is this a attack on titan mod or something? =P it has the same wires you have in that game.
