Fan-Based Pokémon MMO Shut Down

April 4, 2010

You know what Nintendo really need to do? Make a Pokémon MMO. Seriously, if it was done right it would have so much potential and it could be amazing. There was a fan-based MMO based on the games titled Pokénet which has now unfortunately faced Nintendo’s wrath and is no more. I never even got a chance to try it out.

Pokénet wasn’t finished and was still in development but it could still be played in its beta stage. One of the programmers behind the project told Joystiq that over 7,000 players had logged time into the MMO where they could be Pokémon trainers and “could even catch, evolve, trade,”.

It seemed to all be going along well which makes it all the worse when Nintendo shut it down. It’s understandable but I still wish I had got to try it myself. Check out some gameplay footage after the jump.
