    Do you guys have any interest in getting pokemon on the switch? Do you want it to be stars or an entirely new entry in the series? Do you agree with what I want to see the switch game take from uranium?!

      The real reason nintendo took down pokemon Uranium among it hurting the game space (being a free pokemon experience that may cost them) and the same issue with the WoW issue that if they let Uranium slide, anyone can make a cheap knockoff exploiting their assests...The court of law would allow infringement if the pokemon name was not regulated.
      If you need any more information I am happy to provide and it sucks that your video content is wasted, but the message this video puts out is in one niche aspect bad.
      You should not condemn gamefreak/pokemon for shutting down an unregulated game and mark that as a middle finger... all things we love is made because shareholders make money and while it seems evil without that incentive, we would have nothing...
      Afterall pokemon in a whole would be impossible without shareholders...

      Free or not they did anyone say "you know we can't get away with this right." Nintendo is in every right to remove the game you can't just use a trademarked brand in your "fangame"

      It is generally considered good form to state your thesis from the outset. What did uranium do differently that improved upon the formula so much? You make us wait over 4 mins before you even start establishing your argument - then you stall around 5 mins. Put your points out at the start, then elaborate upon them after that - don't make your audience wait because, frankly, it's rude. We don't care about your ad revenue so stop making us work for it.

    I listened, I liked this video very much. I like Pokemon, always have but the constant problems that have plagued "official" Pokemon games like lackluster story, boring npcs, etc. have always been a problem. As a kid, I'd make up a story like my Pokemon were alive and use my imagination while playing the game. That's fun, and still is, but it wouldn't hurt to have a Pokemon game that is truly dynamic and immersive. Pokemon Uranium sounds like an interesting game. It shoudl have been given the time of day to do its thing. It wasn't hurting anything. Unfortunately, money and greed rule the day and it really is a shame that Nintendo couldn't be appreciative enough to let it breathe. I'm just a fan who's been disappointed in Pokemon for a long time. i liked the anime as a kid, played the games, now i'd like to recapture that magic but in a new way. We may see that day or we may not, who knows? Only time will tell.

    I agree with Nintendo. You can't copy other people's product and release it. It's ridiculous.

    "Just in case you do get the chance to play it."
    Hmm, this game must be stupidly hard to find so you can play it. Let's find out.
    *Types "pokemon uranium" into google.
    Alright, I doubt this will work, but I got to start somewhere, right.
    *Hits enter and notices that the first link is the download link on the game's Wikia.
    ...
    Are you fucking serious man? I've had a harder time finding socks to wear.

    one thing that Nintendo needs to remember about these games is that once it's on the internet, it's available forever. someone ALWAYS has a copy of that initial installer or .iso file that houses that "forbidden" game.

    instead of complain about game difficulty, here is what you can do
    1. pick a starter with a type you're not used to
    2. turn off exp share
    3. don't use repel or potion or shit
    4. ???
    5. profit

    X and Y and Sun and Moon were far too easy...th grind is part of the fun, having an Experience share that gives XP to your entire team is ridiculous. Pokemon Switch better be a massive jump forward in story, in side quests, in map size and different regions, in game mechanics. Don’t give us a reskinned Pokemon sun and moon. Make it worthy of the console. Don’t dumb down anymore. You have a huge fan base full of adults and kids. Give your more mature fans something to play! Stop pandering to the widest audience possible with simplified games. Go eevee and go pikachu better just be fun side projects and not a look at what’s to come.

  • accquizzer

    Everyone tends heckle Nintendo for holding such a tight grip on the franchises' licenses, but those people forget history. Remember one of the reasons Nintendo survived the 1983 Video Game Crash (besides being stationed in Japan instead of North America) is because of a tight quality control. While other video game companies would late anyone make a video game, which lead to a flood of shovelware, Nintendo made every video game maker go through a vigorous quality control before giving its seal of approval. It guaranteed the gamer would receive a quality game. The few times that Nintendo did extend their franchise license, it ends up in horrible messes, like Hotel Mario. It's not until recently that we've seen 3rd party developers actually create decent games with the favorite Nintendo characters. As Nintendo welcomes indie games to its systems, we'll also see Nintendo allow more creative developers take control of their core franchises, but don't expect Nintendo to let the flood gates wide open.

    they have to protect their game.. why are you faulting Nintendo for this? thats really dumb.. 1. the creators of Uranium could have tried to get rights to use the Pokemon name, 2. everyone in the community could literally tell Nintendo what they want in a pokemon game and let them try and create it.. why do you think they shouldn't protect their ip? if you created something would you want it ripped off?

  • MegaMinerd
    MegaMinerd 4 months ago

    Watching this now that we know a decent amount about Pokemon Let's Go doesn't really change that many of the claims. Don't get me wrong, the new games do look really cool with the variable sizes, the riding Pokemon of sufficient size, the return of the following mechanic people were begging for among other things. However, as cool as it seems, if you think about it, the simplified capture mechanics remove another layer of difficulty- one that might not be so easy to replace under the rules of the nuzlocke, which gets some of its difficulty from punishing you for failing a capture. I realize that there are plenty of fans today that were not around when Kanto games were released for the first time (I'm excluding the virtual console), but this seems like it is cutting out the fans who were around from the beginning who, for the most part, have been asking for games that are harder and have new regions rather than ones they've seen made twice before (4 if you count the Johto games).
    The main series games for the most part don't change the formula that much. That's why I'm so into the spinoff games. The Orre games gave a fascinating new element of an organization basically turning Pokemon evil and giving you the task of rescuing them. The Mystery Dungeon series put you in the role of a Pokemon that could understand other Pokemon and explore a different kind of world with a genuinely compelling and moving story. The Ranger games, while gimmicky, challenged you in a completely different way. I'm not asking for such drastic changes, but more variety in the formula would be great. The removal of Gyms in Sun and Moon was a start. It was something even I hadn't quite done before. I'd like to see what other kinds of experiments we can see in the future.

    You're fucking stupid. It's their brand for Arceus' sake. If they let people do whatever they fuck they want, actual pirates will take the brand. They can't let this live.
    The only "good thing" they could have done is shut down the game and hire those guys. But every possibility involves shouting it down.

  • Varrondy
    Varrondy 4 months ago

    I thought you made a really good video, and some of the points are true. But the last point is the one that bothers me the most. You say that you want to feel what you first felt when you first turned on Pokemon Blue, and that you want Pokemon to grow with you too. It's a nice statement, but it's also kind of selfish. Nostalgia is one of the highest forms of euphoria one can attain i think, but you can't ask for game freak to cater to your desires and make the game that you or your generation wants. You have to remember that Pokemon is a second party game, so it's not fully owned by Nintendo. I mention this because you might have countered with, "Well Nintendo is for all ages," but seeing as Game Freak is only partially owned by Nintendo, they still have creative license with who they would like to sell this to, and their core demographic is around the 10 year old mark. That's why for so many years, the age of Ash and the VG characters have been 10. It's hard to let go of, but you have to realize that you can't always get what you ask for, and that's okay. Just hope that what the kids nowadays experience when they pick up a modern day Pokemon game what we first experienced when we picked one up.

    That 'Controling market' you speak off is just trademarklaw. They HAVE to shut down any fangames they find using their license or they risk losing their trademark. I understand the pain of the loss of Uranium but they could have seen this coming.
    If they wanted to truly make a new pokémon game, to improve on the formula, they should have taken a lesson from 'Stardew Valley'. Make it 'inspired by' and not 'coppied'.

  • Raieth Star
    Raieth Star 4 months ago

    Pokémon uranium was garbage. The Pokémon were wildly unbalanced and poorly designed. The plot was boring and predictable in addition to poorly written. The region had no cohesive theme, the quests were broken by getting fly so late. The only thing they did that was interesting was the translater. Even that wasn’t implemented well. Basically nothing was worth saving in this project.

  • Flutters
    Flutters 4 months ago

    I am afraid Nintendo only took it down, because they had to legally. If they didn't strike down the most popular game with "Pokemon" in its title that wasn't licensed by them, then legally that means that they void their copyright of it, and anyone can make Pokemon games ever.

  • Amazingly Awkward
    Amazingly Awkward 4 months ago

    To comment on the video - I believe Nintendos response and outlook on fan games is the wrong approach and a more open and welcoming approach while still being able to protect their IPs can be done - in fact the fans respect Nintendos IPs enough to not tarnish Nintendos IPs.
    However, the real reason I commented - that piano rendition wad absoloutely beautiful
    I also hope if they do take inspiration from Uranium they thank the developers or at least I hope a shout out to fan developers is made

    I've never been a pokemon fan, but watching TieTuesday play through Uranium showed how awful that game was, and how weak the series has been. Uranium was somehow horribly optimized for an RPG maker game, and even this video features the chugging framerates of the later areas. Nintendo has been excessively strict with most fan stuff, but Uranium was a cringy mess (like most of these fan creations) and was fine to kill.

  • ASNS117Zero
    ASNS117Zero 5 months ago

    Eh... I personally think Pokemon would benefit greatly by smacking some of the linear-ness out of it. Let me explain.
    First, I'd start by increasing the scope of the game. I want to see a title that takes an existing landmass (Let's use the Johto-Kanto one for ease of use) and expands on it. That area to the north of Johto and Kanto that we don't really have much info on? Let's build up into that space, and add on a number of zones/routes that *doubles* the world space experienced in GSC. They've certainly got the room up there, and current gen hardware can more than handle it.
    With that done, I'd make it to where there's a 'main quest' that acts as the games core plot, and spans all of the four regions in this theoretical game. Then, each of the four regions have their regional pokemon league which serves as a regional questline, with branching side-quests attached to that. The regional pokemon leagues can be completed in any order, or not at all -- and doing them gives access to unique things like legendaries, mega-evolution items, rare pokemon, or special items. Finally, I'd add self-contained small scale quests for each major city in the regions, that act as 'city quests', or 'cave/dungeon/natural feature' type quests that tell a self contained story and offer useful rewards like TMs, cosmetic items, or additional shops. These self-contained quests, story wise, would be used mainly as a tool for world building and developing the setting, whereas the regional quests would be used to move the story of those regions forward -- how has Kanto changed since RBGY? The regional questline for the Kanto league would tell us that. I'd keep any big, huge threats isolated in the main quest, which leads me to my next point. I want the antagonists to feel like they're a threat during the main quest. I don't want to be constantly brushing them aside like you tend to do against the main teams -- I want them to always be a step ahead of me. Sometimes three steps ahead. I want there to be a sense of urgency, desperation even.
    Now, onto gameplay. I don't think the core of what pokemon battling is needs to change, it just needs some major house cleaning. Controversial opinion time here, but here goes -- I want this title to see a total stat revisit of every pokemon in the franchise. Power creep has been killer, especially since gen 5, and going through and doing a refit to the admittedly huge number of 'mons is no easy task, but it needs to happen. Same thing with moves, go through and revisit everything. Roll out Nuzlocke type challenge modes into the base game as a feature. In fact, make more of them -- get a team together and have them come up with ideas for challenge features that could be added to a pokemon game.
    Graphics wise, I'd be happy if they simply took the type of art in Sun/Moon, cleaned it up (especially in the environments and backgrounds), sharpened it up to HD, and added additional animations to the 3d models so that every attack doesn't use like, just 2 or 3 animations. Pokemon to me isn't something that should ever be that advanced, and it needs to retain some of that cartoony anime charm. Being too realistic hurts it, IMO.
    Finally, story. As I mentioned, I want to see a lot of world building in this theoretical title. I want lots of the little things gone over in more detail. What exactly happens to Pokemon when they're in the PC, for example. I want the regions to feel more like a living world, and for the choices we make to have effects on it -- and, speaking of that, choice. Give us real, meaningful choices to make. Let's make a game that has a main draw of exploring around to find things to collect have some more real things to explore! And as for the main plot, I want to see something tackled that really hasn't (to my knowledge) really been addressed -- where do the humans come from in the Pokemon world? They're obviously not Pokemon, frankly their presence in the world seems kind of weird and artificial. Do the humans in Pokemon come from another planet? Do they come from another dimension? If they're native to the world, how did they even appear, since wild Pokemon would've just om nom nom'd them if you put people into that kind of world w/o their crazy advanced tech. I want to see the main plot be about that, and the villains doing something that's a threat specifically to the humans, instead of the Pokemon. Maybe the villains want to do something that would erase all of humanity to create what they feel would be the perfect utopia for Pokemon.
    Maybe, just maybe, the villain should be a Pokemon.

  • Sedite

    so I have been playing pokemon for at least five years now I know that's not that long but I have went back and played all the pokemon games I heard about uranium and I got it I still have it
    and its fantastic
    I think that your right all the way but I have some ideas...
    1 make it were say if you were to do a sidequest during your journey what if later on that character would appear in the story and help you I think it would be amazing.
    2 I think that it should be much more open world were instead of only taking routes you could cut through the wood etc but if you were to cut through the woods it would be much more dangerous than taking thr rout
    3 in the GTS you should be able to filter to look or ask for a shiny pokemon
    4weathers would be amazing lets say your play in the summer time it would be sunny and say if it was winter it would be cold
    5 in online battles make different kinds of stadiums so that we can vote on a stadium
    6pokemon customization such as putting a bo tie on a pikachue etc
    I hope someone reads this :D

    To say companies "DO Not Care" when their hard work has been stolen and whored out is not correct. It is because if they spent their riches going after single games they would still be unable to ever wash the internet clean of copies. They are helpless. You might say "well they are rich anyway so why does this matter?". Well that is because now it is happening to excess of equally impoverished people however they do not have any money to protect themselves so the early innovators are victimized and you shits have the audacity to think it is just all good fun and doesn't effect anyone else. That is the reality. This is not "fan art" it is criminals not getting the backlash they deserve as they torpedo true creators!

    Never was interested in Uranium; because it's a fangame, there's no PKHeX or PokéGen for it to counter the randomness of IVs, Natures and Abilities.
    I loathe randomness, so PKHeX or similar is practically mandatory nowadays.

    8:24 And are extremely dumb, uninteresting and needlessly difficult.
    What's the point, when you can just pick another 4 Pokémon to catch and play with them? Why bother with the whole 'fainted equals dead' and 'can only catch one Pokémon per area' things when they remove enjoyment?
    Nuzlockes are just dumb, and are why I stopped caring about Marriland.

  • PokeMaster22222
    PokeMaster22222 5 months ago

    5:33 Yes, like releasing Halitosis of the Wild without removing weapon fragility or limited stamina or character fragility, or adding in proper multi-floored dungeons and an actual, non-repetitive narrative. We also didn't need yet another open-world game, Nintendo.
    Or releasing the Switch, with its incredibly crappy controllers. JoyCons are too small, fiddly and cramped separately, and together the analog sticks are unaligned - the second of which also applies to the Pro Controller - resulting in an uncomfortable gaming experience. Thank Arceus for Ortz's controller...
    Or releasing Skyward Sword, with its unfortunately heavy reliance on a totally nonfunctional gimmick named 'motion controls' and an incredibly slow bird required for getting anywhere, and for introducing shield durability and limited stamina to the series. Oh, and four incredibly dull regions that are traversed time and time again - repetition is bad, Nintendo.
    Or releasing Super Mario Galaxy, that had incredibly strict and linear world ('Galaxy') design and only 3 HP, unlike the much superior Super Mario 64 DS.The former is something Galaxy carried over from Sunshine, while the latter is brand-new. Furthermore, since it's a Wii game, motion controls are a requirement - for about 6 Stars but still an annoying-as-hell requirement - and the Starship and its inhabitants are useless, pointless and annoying.
    Or releasing Pokémon XY, which introduced a bland region, a slew of bland characters, very few new Pokémon, a bland narrative, ruined the Steel-type, and weakened a boatload of Special moves (no Physical moves whatsoever) for no reason whatsoever. What was the point?
    Or releasing Super Mario 3D World with incredibly poor level design - especially later on in the game - and making Peach and Rosalina playable when they didn't need to be. Rosalina did nothing in Galaxy or Galaxy 2; why bring her back? As for Peach, she should just be Bowser's captive - nothing more.

    It doesn’t matter that these two guys spent a good amount of time making a game that people like, and doesn’t matter that it may have been your favourite pokémon game, it was still illegal and should not have been done. Copyright is very serious and they’re lucky that they weren’t put under any serious legal issues. Trademark infringement is also very serious. Pokemon did the right thing, would you want someone to copy your billion dollar idea? No. Pokémon know what they’re doing.

    Nintendo could have grew if they just worked with the two people to make it legal.

    You know the The Lion King is a rip off from a Japanese studio done better. There is also grudge from the war i believe. If the people who did Uranium were Japanese this would have gone a different path. Unfortunate

    Pokemonfans keep complaining that Nintendo won't release a Pokemon game that is more grown up and that it is aimed too much at little kids, while the rest of the world is complaining that Pokemon fans won't just grow up and let the game be for little kids.

    Uranium is way overhyped and FAR from the best Pokemon fan game, let alone best nintendo fan game. How many fan games have you played? 10 minutes of research into Pokemon fan games will show you it's rarely in peoples top 5, there are hordes of great Pokemon fan games. I know it got media attention and was in the mainstream view but I only actually see that as a bad thing, when fan games were more underground a C&D like that was almost unheard of, and lead to great fan games some of us had been waiting years for getting shut down too (like Prism). While the game is decent, I feel like it's not as great as it's touted to be, but I respect your opinion maybe I'm biased as I hate Fakemon.

    story heavy pokemon is sort of a paradox for the serier. While it enhances the play experience for your first playthrought it only does so for the first one, pokemon ultra sun and moon was the most story heavy pokemon to date. while it was very good it almost completely removed player freedom, what i mean is if you try to play the game again, you are held captive by tedious scenes that happen like every five minutes and none of them can be skipped... there is almost no freedom at all and you are rarely let to play the game for your self, THIS was super frustrating for me and it made the sun and moon series almost un-replayable. the older games still shine while outdated becuase you are free to do what you want and the story scenes were short and rare, which meant that you could just play pokemon without getting stuck all the time.
    in my hopes for pokemon switch i hope they do full animation cutscenes and dont input alot of text form cutscenes sense those can take a huge amout of boring time if they happen to frequently AND that they make every single scene skippable so you can just enjoy the base gameplay on your next playthroughts. player freedom is important but having a meaningful story can also be important, i hope gamefreak can find a good mix with both

    As much as it breaks my heart to say, I think it might be time to say goodbye to nintendo's IPs, including Pokemon. They clearly don't care enough about the fans to give them the games they really want, and they won't allow us to make those games either.

    I think its just good business sense... if they give people an inch then everyone takes a mile, if they don't crack down then it could negatively cause problems to every other series. what if everyone make there own Nintendo ripoffs with no legal consequence? well i don't know but what i imagine would happen is you'd have games like uranium that are great and then 99% of those other games suck then people look negatively at Pokemon if that's how they are introduced because fan games are free, so why not just play the fan made version. but then say you have people using the Pokemon name and have an innovative new idea that they implement, and Nintendo is working on an official Pokemon and makes a similar feature then the legal complications increase, should the fan creative types sue Nintendo for coping there idea? or would they lose by default because Pokemon belongs to Nintendo and then theres even the issue where even if the legal outcome was fair maybe everyone would think worse of nintendo....? also it does suck that uranium was taken down.... but i think they should have just called it something else poket.... monstermash.... something something something or other.... i dunno. just anything that's not copy written....

    I know what you mean, about Pokemon feeling.. old. That it needs some change up, I skipped sun and moon due to having just moved out, but when ultra sun and moon came out, I took it as my opportunity to pick em up and jump back in after X an Y, which I loved those 2. But, by the third island I just.. wasn't having fun, something felt off, I was doing a blind nuzlocke, had a few deaths, especially on the water trial, but I just, couldn't keep going. I don't know, maybe it was to many cutscenes forcing me to stop, maybe it was I could figure out a pokemons typing just by looking at it, new or not. I just want to feel like I did back when I played red and blue, or even x and y.

    Honestly, since X and Y, Pokemon's been pretty lame. Being an avid Nintendo fan who buys just about every Nintendo release, I hated Sun and Moon. Actually hated. It was garbage. If Nintendo can't make their games work well without adding stupid gimmicks like mega evolution and totem Pokemon, I'm never going to buy a Pokemon game again.

    Your speaking straight to my soul with this one man!! I was a die-hard Nintendo fan growing up. But since the release of the game cube it just feels like they don't care anymore. Pokemon was so much a part of my life growing up and it kills me to see what it has become.

    No wonder gamefreak doesnt want to take risks. The signals from the fans are very mixed. "Be inovative and do new things, but keep it like the game I played 20 years ago" same thing ruined the sonic games. Stop acting like spoiled brats and take it or leave it.

    Yes because nothing at all was ever added to the games after 1st gen. They are all the exact same game just re textured no new features at all they definitely don't even have a different story.

    Companies are legally required to shut down derivative works because it creates a legal precedent that the IP is worthless. If they allow Pokemon Uranium they have to allow any garbage Pokemon game that Steam Greenlight hacks throw out. It's all or nothing. Which ruins your view of Pokemon more? IP integrity or Pokemon Zombie Survival Asset Flip Number 12?
