While browsing for the latest whispers on Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, we came across a rather awesome fan project that we couldn’t wait to share for those that don’t know about it. The Pokemon Type Wild 5.3 download is a fan creation offering a 2D fighting game that apparently features animation from the same team responsible for the Pokemon anime series.
We’re not sure why we haven’t stumbled across this now but we’re glad we did. Pokemon Type Wild is something of a rare hidden gem for Pokemon fanatics and although the game hasn’t been updated in years we can see that many fans are still playing.
Countless ‘Let’s play’ Pokemon Type Wild gameplay videos continue to be uploaded on YouTube, suggesting that Nintendo and the Pokemon company may not be willing to take action to remove the game since development on the game appears to have come to an halt.
As you can see from the Pokemon Type Wild English controls image that we have found though, some gamers are willing to go to great lengths to make the game relevant. At the moment, Pokemon Type Wild is completely in Japanese so those who have downloaded the game will probably find the Pokemon Type Wild move list in English above very useful.
The professional animations and sprites suggest that the rumor regarding the original Pokemon anime team working on it may be true after all. For those that want to see what all the fuss is about, we’ve managed to uncover a working Pokemon Type Wild 5.3 download link that is still good to go.
Again though, we’re unsure as to how long this game will stay up. In our opinion, Nintendo should be seeing the potential of this and press forward with official development.
It could be a wonderful alternative to Pokken Tournament which is already on the way and the type of 2D fighter that would look amazing as an official Nintendo 3DS game.
We’re big fans of the Pokemon Company and their efforts in making Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire the best game it can be this November. However, you should definitely have a peek of Type Wild and see what you think.
Do you see massive potential in this game?
