Play Free Fan-Made Pokemon Games

Throughout the past 10 years, there have been over 400 unofficial Pokemon Fan Games created for PC, without counting rom hacks. The majority of these released fan games are not very good and are rarely completed. However, a few games stand out in the bunch and are real gems. Some of these 2019 trending pokemon Fan games are as good as official retail releases. After researching and playing many Pokemon fan games, I have compiled an unranked top list featuring the 10 best games. I also included an honorable mentions list, along with a resources list below the main article. If you know of any other great Pokemon fan games that I failed to mention, please let everyone know about them in the comments section.

You’ve probably played your fair share of Pokémon games, including the highly popular Pokémon Go. Heck, maybe you’ve played ’em all. But if you think the official games constitute a complete collection of the Pokémon experience, you’re sadly mistaken. Lurking in the pocket monster fandom’s deepest trenches is a treasure trove full of mystery and, more importantly, fan games. Specifically, ROM hacks. Lots of ROM hacks. While some Pokémon fan games are horrifying and others are brilliant, all of them are completely unforgettable. Read on to find out about some games that take inspiration from one of the best franchises ever developed.

Some of the fan-made Pokémon games on this list require you to use an emulator. An emulator is a computer program that emulates old games consoles on another device. For more context, learn what emulation is and how it works. Emulators can play ROMs, which are computer images of games taken from a read-only memory chip (like a Game Boy cartridge). You can install an emulator on your computer or mobile device.

Pokémon Fusion Generation

Curious as to what the lovechild of Charizard and Squirtle might look like? No? Well, this game still exists to satisfy someone else’s curiosity about the subject. The premise is simple: imagine fighting the fusion of your favorite Pokémon with hybrid monsters of your own. Cool, right?

Well, the good news is the game executes its core concept successfully, delivering on the promise of jovial, good-natured Pokémon DNA experimentation… until it’s revealed at the end of the story that there’s a basement full of failed fusion Pokémon begging to be put out of their misery.

Pokemon Uranium

A Pokemon fan games top list not featuring Pokemon Uranium would be a crime. Pokemon Uranium took nine years to make and was a labor of love for Pokemon game fans. Uranium was still in active development before Nintendo called a stop to the project in 2016. Uranium has been downloaded over 2 million times. Even though Uranium’s development was cut off early, there’s still a lot of content available and Uranium feels like a complete game. If you love unofficial Fakemon (unofficial fan-made Pokemon), Uranium offers 150 Fakemon, along with 40 official Pokemon available to catch. Most of the fakemon in Uranium is really cool, and I actually like them more than some of the official Pokemon from the later generations. Uranium takes place in the Tandor region, you will play as a young hero who lives with his auntie. Your main goal is to collect eight gym badges, however, you will encounter large problems on your journey that can’t be avoided. Pokemon Uranium is still one of the best fan games ever made, and should be at the top of your playlist!
