Pokemon Spectrum is a game developed by a single person since 2014 as a form of a side project. Considering the game has been in development since then by just one guy, we can give him a break. The game is functional, but it still doesn’t have a lot of content, which is fine. It uses assets from the Black and White games but is pretty much playable on its raw form as it uses RPG Maker XP and Pokemon Essentials.
The story takes place in the Kroma region, which isn’t in any of the official games. You are a trainer hailing from the town of Lildune. Just like any of the games, you will then start off your adventure to collect Pokemon, battle Gym Leaders, and more.
The gameplay is pretty much the same as classic Pokemon games. Pokemon Spectrum has different original Pokemon that you can catch as well as Spectrum versions of some official Pokemons like Elekid, Nincada, the Eevee evolutions, and more. The game is still in development so be sure to watch out for future updates and versions of the game.
The Unique Concept
There really isn’t a lot of unique concepts when it comes to the game as of this moment, but that’s not a bad thing. You do get some original Pokemon to use, but other than that, the gameplay is similar. There are no distinctions yet and things that set it apart from the other games. You could say that it is just another classic Pokemon game taking place in a different area with a bunch of new Pokemon.
