    Members of 4chan's /vp/ board are teaming up to make their own Pokémon game. Because how often do you get a Pocket Monster trainer named "Doucherado"? Not often enough!

    Eugh, those fakemon look atrocious, like 80% of the CAP project creations in Smogon. Why is it so hard for people to make fakemons that actually resemble something Sugimori or Oomura would've designed?

    Well when they make a few more games we can look back on this one and hail it as the best generation of Fakemon.

    Making fakemon look good is not impossible, there are some very good examples:



    If it wasn't for the fact these are fan creations I honestly would believe they're actual pokemon. What those people do is basically throwing all the pokemon designing basics out of the window.

    I think the problem with the fake pokemon in the article is their lack of original gimmicks.
    All pokemon usually have some gimmick as inspiration for their appearance and abilities. The pokemon in the article all look like they were inspired by existing pokemon, but they don't have any unique gimmick of their own that would make them rememberable and hint what their capabilities are

    Yeah, I have to admit the character designs are pretty neat.

    Donut Girl is cool, the guy looks too much like the male trainer in the last game; and it's the same thing with the trainer we'll have in X/Y.

    Male trainer designs are becoming a bit dull and repetitive compared with the female ones recently, for some reason.

    I think 4chan should be a little more tongue-in-cheek with their pokemon designs. More inspirations that would make it more apparent that its a 4chan game.

    Pokemons like
    Neckrobeard
    Housemill, evolves into Nottameem
    Sadfrog
    Betamale, evolves into Socash
    Iceguy, evolves into Missogomist

    I think the fakemon are pretty good overall, some need work and some overlap too much with real pokemon.

    The character design is excellent, and I like the western theme going. I just hope the region and story mirror the western theme eventually. The current region maps have a very diverse environment and most of the suggested plot throws this out of the window.

    Since it's being made in gamemaker, and isn't a romhack, there's a little more freedom for extra features and events, which I hope is taken advantage of.

    I think the designs aren't so much the problem as how all of the Pokemon CAP on Smogon makes is a blatantly overpowered Mary Sue OU tier Pokemon.

    Pokemon combat has always been finding the opponent's weakness and exploiting it better than they can exploit yours. That's how you win.

    not even people from 4chan would like that idea
    it's /b/ tier, and every board tries to distance themselves from /b/.

    The character design looks very nice though

    If someone made a movie about some American kids in the 80's going undercover as Peruvian llama herders, this is what the characters would look like.
