Pokemon Unite is way better than it has any right being

Pokemon Unite is a barnstormer right out of the gate. Watch on YouTubeThe world of Pokemon has been applied to many genres of video game, but I think it’s pretty fair to say that only a handful of them have been runaway successes. There’s the original turn-based RPGs, of course. There’s the photography simulation of Snap, and the augmented reality adventures of Pokemon Go. These aren’t just successes, but in most cases are also milestone titles – but for every game like this, there’s something that’s just sorta fine – puzzlers, fighting, and a slew of mobile money-spinners.

Pokemon Go: how many Pokemon are there in the game’s Pokedex?

The days when you could easily list every single creature available in Pokemon Go are long, long over. Watch on YouTubeThere’s now a huge number of Pokemon in the game – in fact, there’s now more different species in Pokemon Go than remain to be added.Counting the exact numbers can be challenging, however. The Pokedex is not made equal. Some Pokemon have different regional variants that are completely different Pokemon for all intents and purposes but share a Pokedex number. Others have multiple forms that share a Pokedex number. Some, like Eevee, play by their own rules, with a wide…

Creature-collecting game Palworld looks like a dark, twisted take on Pokemon

By Dom Peppiatt 6 June 2021 10:44 GMT Ever wondered what Pokemon would be like if it were more reflective of the real world? Well, wonder no longer because Palworld is likely to answer that question.Let’s be honest, if Pokemon were real, there’s a very good chance they’d be used like animals are in our world – battery farmed, exploited for labor, used as tools and for industry as well as domesticated as pets.Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are launching on November 19, 2021, but if you’d prefer a more mature, pessimistic look at the creature-collecting genre, perhaps Pocket…
