In the 26 years since the launch of the first generation of Pokémon, fans have enjoyed a series of spin-offs, covering innumerable genres. Pokémon have appeared in strategy games, pinball titles, dungeon trackers and more. However, a genre that the series has avoided understandably is the first-person shooting game. The Reddit, Dragon Gamete user, decided to change that, with an incredible version of Unreal Engine in which the players knock down Pokémon using several weapons, instead of trying to capture them. The video is incredibly impressive from a technical point of view, even if it is a bit strange to see poor Pikachu go out in the middle of a shower!
The video can be found in the Reddit publication embedded below.
I spent the last month making a Pokémon FPS from
As expected, the video has received a lot of users’ comments on Reddit. While the posters quickly pointed out that it feels bad to see Pokémon as Nicking and Arbor killed, they were also surprised by how well the video is seen. Surprisingly, Dragon Gamete only took a month to complete the process, although they admit that some shortcuts were used to work. The Pokémon themselves have been imported from Pokemon Sol and Luna, but apparently not all worked, especially those with fire particles. The game even presents heads of bosses against Legendary Birds and Mew two; There is no need to worry about using a Master Ball, this time!
Some Reddit users shared their interest in which a real Pokémon shooting game happens one day, but the chances of that happening are almost null! Pokémon has always been a franchise for people of all ages, and offer strictly aimed games for older players would not make much sense. The closest thing to a shooter who has seen the franchise is snap Pokémon and his recent sequel to Nintendo Switch. Both games use mechanics similar to those of the rails on rails as CASA of the dead, but with weapons replaced by cameras. Fans who want to see Pokémon brutally die of horrible ways in media with official license will only have to settle for the Pokémon Adventures manga!
