This will do nothing against the largest media franchise in the world.

Many "killers" came, and many "killers" went. Same shit different day.




It's been on my radar for a few weeks now. I fell out with Pokemon since Sun/Moon and the rift between was made even further with S/S, so seeing this and it being on PC and online based makes me excited for what the game can do. I really hope it does well enough to provide some stuff competition towards Pokemon, and also show that there are others out here wanting their Pokemon fix on other platforms (if they don't care, then the Tem devs reap the bountiful rewards).



               

"TemTem, new Pokemon killer?"

After 24 years you'd think people would get the clue that Pokemon isn't going to be killed by anything.

This is an MMORPG inspired by Pokemon. The art style, mechanics, etcetera, all seem to be in place to appeal to the old-school Pokemon gamers. It's $35 for Early Access at the moment, but I've heard that queue times can take a couple hours, and if it keeps trending that could get worse.

I'd like to hear from those that have played this game; does it feel like Pokemon? I don't think think any copyright infringement has occurred, but do you think GameFreak or The Pokemon Company will respond in any way? Maybe this will force them to step up their game, as this is looking to be everything that Pokemon Switch should have been. I haven't played it yet and maybe those words are steeped in the hype surrounding this title at the moment. Maybe everyone will forget about this game after a few months and it will be dead. Or maybe Sony will try and snatch exclusive console rights and make this their Pokemon killer?

Thoughts?

Sony already has a better game than the current Pokemons, in Digimon Story - Cyber Sleuth.
Its just too few people know about it, people are too stuck in their ways, to try anything else.

Yo-kai Watch labelled as the "Pokemon killer" at one point and look how that turned out.

This game looks like it's the online Pokemon game we all asked for but Nintendo wont do it. Hope it does well.

Also...the only real Pokemon killer is Rick and Morty: Pocket Mortys :P

I think it's a missed opportunity, there are too many elements that are the same as Pokemon, such as starters (and why 3?), professor, types effectiveness, 4 moves available, wild encounters "cutscene", 6 TemTem per team, IVs and EVs. Of course there are improvements such as stamina in battle and character personalization. One mistake they shouldn't have done is not having limited early access numbers and this caused crash and lag due to the massive number of players, that would have helped a lot for a better impression for the game. My opinion is they should have risk more on improvements and they shouldn't have "copied" (I didn't find a better word for describing this, sorry) so many mechanics from Pokemon

I agree. Its clear they didn't get inspired by pokemon but instead copied it. It still looks extremely safe in all the ways that has made pokemon seem dated in the last decade.

I'm more interested in Yokai Watch 4's international Switch/Ps4 launch as a pokemon competitor but this game does look enticing enough

That game is also out on Switch. And it's different.




Trying to kill Pokemon is a bigger of an attempt as to trying to kill Mario, Micky Mouse or Marvel. A cheap indie knock off ain't gonna do it, I mean just look at what happened to Yo-kai watch and it at least had the backing of the necessary media such as apps, TV shows, Movies and merchandise. Temtem doesn't have a hope of making a fraction of the $1.46 billion Pokemon makes from it's manga sales never mind the franchise as a whole.

I imagine this could find its fair share of fans.
