Pokemon Alternative?

I've had the urge to go back and play Pokemon but its not worth it for me to buy a DS just for that, especially with an iPad and an iPhone. I was hoping someone would know of a great alternative/rip off/whatever for iOS? Preferably universal and with iCloud saving? If not would someone like to develop this? If so, feel free to send me a download code and perhaps some royalties

Yeahhhhhhhhhhno.

I also would like to know if there's a similar app too. I can think of many virtual pet games, but nothing really pokemon related.

There is a Pokemon card maker app and you can have battles in that though.

You grab a used Gameboy Advance and a copy of Pokémon Silver, Pokémon Ruby and/or Pokémon Blue. Ain't nothing like the real thing.

Thats true, I just like the idea of having the games on iOS. I love how you always have everything on you. No cellphone, mp3 player, camera, and gameboy. iPhone/iPad is all in one. Plus you always have your iPhone with you and its great to pass time.

Nintendo is going to fight tooth and nail with their portable gaming devices before putting out any games on the iOS platform.




which is retarded, the industry for portable gaming devices is gone, if it was cheaper like around the price of the gameboy would of been fine,

but 200 dollars to buy a nintendo 3DS? lol i rather just upgrade my iPhone or spend it on something better.

im only going to play Zelda:OoT on it, and its damn not worth it for just one game or even 2 or 3.


nintendo can make huge amounts of money if they just drop their portable device line and start developing/porting to the iOS

all i see is profits.

imagine how much hype there will be with Starfox 64, Mario 64, MarioKart 64, Mario Party (with online play), Zelda OoT and Majoras mask, GOLDEN EYE,

etc etc.

if not, although nintendo is a pioneer, they're going to become the next sega in a decade or so.

nintendo only lives through their famed and iconic characters, if it wasnt for them things would of gone down hill by now.

imagine they didnt have mario, zelda, samus, starfox, and all those other characters.

the interactive parts are nice in which u move around and such, but other than that if they didnt have the classic nintendo characters, are you really going to get a Nintendo Wii or Wii-U to play COD or any other mainstream game in lower quality?


i highly doubt most people would.

well u didnt say never, but might as well. never say never

if nintendo starts losing money, which isn't out of the question than no doubt they'll go the sega route and scrap the gaming systems and just game develop

and they'll survive because of all their iconic games.
