I don't want Nintendo to do anything related to the internet, it can't end well.

It's too late at this point. 5 years ago would have been the perfect time.

MAYBE if it's on 3DS and the online works well. But Nintendo...

No. That idea sounded way cooler back when we were all young and impressionable and not older and cynical.

Pokémon MOBA would be way cooler

My answer has been FUCK YES for the past 10 years and will never change.

I played the Pokemon MMO, it's called Monster & Me and it's a terrible idea.

My thoughts exactly.

Whoever is saying no is an evil evil person.

Also this would be awesome too...

...wait...come to think of it...anything other than this stupid shit they've been doing with pokemon for the past decade would be fine with me.

Nintendo + Online has been nothing but pain so far so no thank you.

#14 Posted by Deadmanforking (575 posts) -

Yes, I would love that.

Kinda? I'd definitely give it a look but I wouldn't lose my shit over it- especially since the last 300-whatever pokemon have been garbage

Pokemon Online was such an amazing game... If only it would have come out of beta. I would have never played another game. Yelling about how I had to complete my pokedex and trading my grandmothers china for the chance to get the ultra rare shiny Oddish.

No. Nintendo and online do not mix.

#18 Posted by DougQuaid (1274 posts) -

Only if Herman Cain is in it.

#19 Posted by Vexxan (4618 posts) -

Not if Nintendo made it.

Friend-code horror!

No, they would have to re-work everything about the game including making an entirely different battle system to work in that format. As a competitive battler there’s no upside. If we’re just taking about an MMO that happens to have pokémon in it, then sure, I guess. But MMOs always launch broke and Nintendo doesn’t really doesn’t know the meaning of post-release support so that’ll be bad.

Also it’s always been Game Freak developing the games, and The Pokémon Company does most of the publishing. Nintendo proper never really touches the things. Nor have they made any MMOs that I’m aware of so the whole thing seems ill advised.

If Nintendo would hire pro's, or learn how the internet works. I would love a Pokemon MMO. I would even pay for a month or two and then wait until it goes F2P.

I don't mean to be a dick/troll/whatever you want to say, but no, not at all. Nintendo doesn't understand online (or at least they haven't displayed that they have) so I can't imagine an MMO developed by them would be very good.

I share this sentiment, but at the same time I feel like it could be cool. The thing I always hate about MMOs is how slow the leveling process ends up becoming. If I could pick up some new Pokemon, and have them skyrocket in levels, see all there evolution, abilities, ect. It may keep me more interested in the main progression.

I have always thought Pokemon would be perfect for an MMO environment. I know Nintendo doesn't like to do internet at all but I still want it.

#25 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Like driving by a car crash, I'm sort've morbidly curious as to how Nintendo thinks a MMO would work.

#26 Posted by Djratchet (669 posts) -

Someone had made a really cool fan MMO out of Pokemon, then Nintendo shut them down...

Because, you know... Nintendo is TOTALLY going to do it themselves (yeah right)

Now that I'm done being bitter, Yes I would love a Pokemon MMO, if Nintendo would get their head out of their ass and figure out how the internet works.

Doesn't have to be an MMO but a great online PVP battle arena or something were you can trade and battle on at anytime.

I share the same stance. If Nintendo made an MMO, it would be about as well conceived as Final Fantasy XIV.

And for that matter, I don't like the structure of any MMO I've ever seen, so I'm not ever particularly excited by the prospect of "X, but THIS TIME IT'S AN MMO". Pass.

If by "from Nintendo", you mean "Nintendo allows someone else to make it."

I'm opposed to the idea of a Pokemon MMO but I did like the Secert Bases idea in Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire, also Emerald... And I guess to a point Diamond, Pearl, & Platinum with 'The Underground' but anyway. I really like the idea of trading trainer data and the game genrating events within the game.

Theres a strong basis for it, but i doubt it will end well

It will be a piece of shit, and everyone knows it.
