Yet another fan-made game that will soon bite the dust.

Can't wait for this to get shut down. What is it about "You can't use someone else's property" that people don't understand?

The "You can't stop me from liking your property in the ways I want" way.

I don't know. But considering you're in the "All localizations of Japanese products suck no matter what" camp, I guess I should just act neutral - I mean, natural.

The fact that they think they can make it better than the license holders and the sad thing is that fan made Pokémon games have sometimes been superior to the originals.

Nintendo had the right to take it down but there will always be mirrors that people will create for ever so others can get it

Yeah... no. This game looks like your typical generic romhack. The fact they're limited to using the Gen 2 engine because obviously using the current engine requires actual programming talent beyond swapping sprites around says a lot.

First of all, I play a lot of Pokemon ROM Hacks and this doesn't qualify as a fan game at all. Nintendo won't DMCA this one because ROM Hacks fall into a sort-of gray area and I've never heard of any hacks getting shelved because of that. Translations however have been DMCA'd because often the companies release the games and it's pointless to do a translation after the fact.

For additional clarification here's a story on Pokecommunity about this: https://daily.pokecommunity.com/2016/10/09/what-exactly-is-a-rom-hack/

They added a Wood-type... when the Grass-type exists and Tree-esque Pokémon like Trevenant are classified under it!

It is going to be such an enthralling dumpster fire when this game gets the inevitable DMCA. Man, people just never learn.

Trainer Customization in Gen II...Interaction between other player Trainers would have more fun had Game Freak introduced it in Crystal.

Stop. At least change the name and images and stuff. Like you could hunt and fight with spirits and tame them using a watch. spoiler[I love Yo-Kai Watch, I just had to because there are more than one monster game franchise out there.]

This isn't going anywhere unlike Uranium, Nintendo just hates fangames and sometimes translations, I also want to play it come December.

This won't be taken down, it's just a patch/rom-hack of Crystal. Uranium was it's own game from the ground up.
