There are a lot of fan-made Pokemon games out there and one of them is Pokemon Apex. This game was made using the RPG Maker XP tool. You can play it directly after you’ve downloaded it. That’s right, you don’t need to download emulators and ROMs because the game itself will launch once you get it.
It has an interesting take since it has a different goal in mind rather than becoming a Pokemon Master. This means no battling gyms because the game is a full blown RPG. You go where the story takes you while you catch some Pokemon along the way. Unfortunately, the game itself isn’t complete yet but updates will be coming anytime soon. It is playable and will give you some fun for about 10 hours or so.
Pokemon Apex Details and More
The story puts you in the shoes of a teenager. Daily life progresses normally until he encounters a mysterious man in black. His life turns around and he has to uncover the mysteries of the world as the story unfolds… and of course, catch Pokemon along the way.
If you’re looking for a different type of Pokemon game, then this is a breathe of fresh air. The game’s story isn’t your typical Pokemon story because you won’t be out there beating Gym Leaders and becoming Champion.
The graphics of the game is similar to the ones on the GBA games with a little bit of minor visual improvements. There are also original music tracks playing in some areas. Despite not fighting Gym Leaders, you still need to catch some Pokemon along the way. The roster is a bit unclear but you do get a ton of them available in the game. The available Pokemon have been updated in terms of stats and moves.
