Pokémon World Online
One of the original fan-man Pokémon MMO games, Pokémon World Online is an ever-evolving experience that is constantly adding new materials & challenges to keep their loyal fanbase happy. Care to join the action?
Pokémon World Online is perfect for those new to the MMO experience, as each new player must go through several tutorial rounds & maps in order to understand the basics of MMO play.
Pokémon World Online also features hosting events, where players of all skill levels can jump in and take part in the action.
Pokémon Legends is a browser-based game, special for the fact that it hosts tournaments every hour, albeit restricted by levels.
While Pokémon Legends isn’t the most exciting fan-based game out of the bunch, it is easy to access given the fact you can log in with your Facebook account.
Pokémon MMO 3D
The only exclusively 3D game on this entire list, Pokémon MMO 3D allows players to explore the Kanto region in 3D. The clear focus in Pokémon MMO 3D is the animation, a factor often neglected in other fan-based games, offering the most realistic battles as players must aim their abilities with actual targets.
Due to the game’s 3D components, it is only available on PC, Mac, and Linux.
With thousands of Pokémon, multiple regions to explore, and one of the biggest MMO communities ever, it’s safe to say that PokéMMO is huge!
One important thing to note is that players must own the ROM for both Pokémon White and Black in order to play.
For gameplay, players must select a region and earn at least four badges before exploring a new region. As well, there’s only one Mewtwo & Rayquaza in the entire server . . . now that’s a rare Pokémon.
