I'm getting it when it comes out (It's free, guys). It has multiplayer so that'll be cool, I've already declared a battle with someone on it.

But it's a rip off. At least show some disdain. Besides, there's microtransactions, so the developer is still making money off of it.
I'm not gonna buy any microtransactions (You can get the Premium Currency by battling friends) so it doesn't worry me. Free stuff is free stuff.

People are being idiots. Why is it a rip-off? Because it has the same battle system? With that logic almost every fighting game in the history of ever is a rip-off.

Pokemon is an RPG game and there are lots of other games that have a simillar battle system to Pokemon. The point is that this game is simillar to Pokemon with battle system. It has a very simillar battle scene and overworld. I think you should check the pictures before judging us.

THAT'S SUPER DUPER MASTER LEVEL HARD STUFF THOUGH
D:

But seriously, I know it's lazy. xD
Maybe an update in the future could bring back sprites or something.

Edit: It's a fan-made rip, of course it isn't going to be perfect. xD
Hell, if it even comes close to "good" it'll probably be a surprise to everyone. Haha

I still say give it a chance. :3

You have to wait months for apple to approve it.

If I remember correctly from what a teacher told me, it might have been a 6 month waiting period.

Wow, you're all assholes. ._.
Someone obviously is a big Pokemon fan and wanted to put it on the iPhone. Who cares if it's a rip off, there's a lot of things in the world that are rip offs, they still had to work hard on it. This person would of put a lot of work into it so you Pokemon fans can have something similar on your iPhone.

And for all you saying it looks like shit, it looks just like Pokemon if I gave you a screen of a pokemon would you say it's shit. >>

There's a difference between being inspired by another franchise and ripping off a franchise. While the creator has good intentions, it doesn't change the fact that the game is potentially illegal. And while Nintendo doesn't own the idea of capturing small monsters and fighting them, they do own Pokemon and even if the new game doesn't say it, Nintendo could make the argument that they're trying to be Pokemon (not a game like Pokemon, but Pokemon itself) and cash in on its success. And shit gets real when money's involved.

As for the graphics, I don't think they're bad, just... lower quality. The overworld sprites are rather generic, and the battle sprites don't have back poses.

So in the end, trying to be like Pokemon is fine, trying to be Pokemon isn't. And while I'd love a Pokemon game on the iPhone, I'd rather not support a copyright infringement.

Potentially illegal, atm it's not illegal. If it makes it through all of these comments should be null void.
