I decided to look into the TemTem discord, and I think there's some quality lols to be extracted here.

1: They literally censor the word Pokemon. They're totally not afraid of lawsuits, though! (even the TemTem wiki literally uses the same templates as Bulbapedia for stat distribution).

2. They're constantly referring to TemTem types by their Pokemon names (for reference, the Types in question are called Water, Nature and Toxic in TemTem):

3. There's a luls-worthy number of people constantly dissing Pokemon while using Pokemon Avatars. Wy is an example of this.

A lot of it comes off less as interest in TemTem and more as jilted lovers, loudly snogging another guy to try and make their ex jealous. It's good shit.
Reminds of this thing going between some of Hytale's fanbase and Minecraft.

The longer I play this game the more instances of lack of polish I find. Just now I noticed that even if your current party is all at lv. 100, you'll still have the EXP gain tab pop up every time an enemy's KO'd even though there's none to add. No past generation did this.

It's the nitpickiest of nitpicks it's true, but I sure do keep coming across a number of little moments like these...

I replayed Black 2 earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. I forgot how fun Gen V was.
Have you played any of the rom hacks? Blaze Black 2 is hard as balls, but a good time.

I was always told never to invest in anything out of spite, more often that not, it just leads to more spite. Anyone hear of that one Pokemon/Harvest moon game Ooblets? Yeah...

The one that got me over and over was sweet scent. The trainer would pop back in view before the camera moved back into position every time. Super distracting.

What's a good way to play Rom Hacks? Everything I've tried messes with textures and the like.

As for Ooblets, I only remember hearing about them when they went Epic Exclusive and were shitlords about the whole thing. Then they vanished off the radar again.

Best way I've done it is with xDelta.

If that doesn't work, here's a good way to go about it: http://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Apply_ROM_Hacks_and_Translations

Sometimes though you can find the rom hacks already applied to game.

I actually haven’t played any rom hacks but definitely want to! I just have a Mac with a limited space, which makes it kind of difficult.

I checked the discord just this morning and they we're worshipping the devs for adding they/them pronouns. This game is gonna be poor and have mods on the level of old Warframe, isn't it?

I'm not opposed for games to have that option, since, hey, options are never a bad thing. But seriously, it's not that big of a deal.

I'm more worried when they start to include things like xim or xer.

Maybe look into a portable hard-drive to keep those games on there? That's what I usually do.

I'm not 100% certain, but I think it has to do this in order to still pass out EVs to all pokemon. In previous games (not sure when it was fixed) but level 100 pokemon could not get new EVs because of this.

Probably. Go played a big fat hand in the genwunner resurgence (only the Kanto mons were available for the first year or so), LG was just further "vindication." All the Kanto whoring even before then in X/Y and Sun/Moon didn't help either.

It took Charizard getting a third special form for more people than usual to take a step back and say "Okay this is too much."
It has gotten to the point where even slightly criticizing Gen 1 on /vp/ causes people to fly off the handle and call you stupid. Granted it is all trolling but I wouldn't be surprised if there were people on /vp/ who genuinely believe RBY were epic classics that require a high IQ to appreciate and understand. Yet again every generation is equally guilty of having such fanboys so who knows.

I give TemTem 6 months at best before it shuts down.
It’ll be even shorter. Kotaku will make an article on it, giving the game a lot of attention, then the game will cease development. The reason? The world may never know...

This is like the Smash Clones that came out and they fucking died on the vine, because surprise people didn't play smash brothers for the mechanics.

Icons went full exceptional individual with gender neutral designs and everything looked like Tumblr Ass.

Even worse is that they're releasing their game less than two weeks after MHW:Iceborne comes to PC, its gonna be a slaughter. Their only strong point is they already had 75k from their kickstarter, but I doubt many people are really gonna buy their product. The only people who are even hearing about it are jilted Pokemon fans like ourselves.

I played nearly every main game ,i missed out on BW, i think i was getting tired of Pokemon for the first time, BW2 got me bact to playing and i was overall enough dissapointed with i haven't played another Pokemon game since (i was tempted by Gen 7 main games after the demo but never got them) so seeing what's going with the franchise is dissapointing (i'm at page 189 as of writing this)

I'm playing PokeMMO to scratch the itch, its basically an MMO of gens 1-5 (minus Johto and Sinnoh, but Sinnoh is coming SOON:tm:)

Huh. Something new has just emerged.


Temtem appears to be an MMO creature collecting game, with a lot of holding its finger under its nose and saying "I'm not pokemon! Pokemon doesn't have a mustache!"

With that said, it looks like it's taking this seriously, and aping the parts of Pokemon's design that help it stand out from the crowd of other monster collectors.

  • A large collection of types - in this case, 12 - with different strengths and weaknesses that aren't just a basic loop. And TemTems can be dual-typed, as well.
  • A set of 7 stats, 6 of which you'll recognize and one you won't - it seems that rather than PP, Temtem has a unified stamina mechanic.
  • A focus on double battles (strong Gamecube game vibes there).
  • Single Values (IVs) that go from 0 to 50, and Training Values (EVs) that can be 500 per stat, 1000 total.
  • Temtem following you.
  • 'Luma' Temtem (shinies) have three maxed IVs SVs by default.
  • It's doing the Psychic - Dark - Fighting starters thing, although the types in question are 'Mental', 'Crystal' and 'Melee'
I'm not sure about how many TemTem there are - the highest number Temtem I could find was #191 - but it seems to be planning to introduce more incrementally.

Wiki Here.

Kickstarter Here.

I don't know if it's gonna be the Pokemon killer - seems a bit slower and grindier (eggs take nearly half an hour to get, for example). But that doesn't mean I ain't gonna try it when the early access drops.
If you want a monster collect a ton mmo just play shin megami tensei: imagine
It had like 600 demons iirc
