    "If you can't get enough of Pokemon like me, Pokemon Insurgence is a great fan-made game that really ties well with the authentic Pokemon games. The game is fun and expands on many of the elements I love about playing Pokemon, lately Insurgence has gotten more game-play by me than the Pokemon originals!"

    "Recently just discovered this game and so far i like it. (that is coming from a huge Pokemon fan) IMO this game is a bit more mature than other Pokemon games out there because there are adult-y stuff on it. And i heard there is a new element in this called nuclear pokemon which I am yet to find. This are just my observations after playing this for just a week i might change my views on this though"

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Pokemon is not a Japanese word but a contraction of the words pocket and monster? The phenomenal anime has made a hallmark in different industries. From books, TV series, films, and of course, gaming, Pokemon earned more than 53 billion yen since its creation in 1996. It was the brainchild of Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures. It started with a pair of video games for Game Boy that spurred Pokemon to its unprecedented success. The franchise has eight generations of games in the main series, and has more than a handful of spinoff titles. It became huge successes and paved the way for some of the best and funniest fan-made Pokemon games.

Its most recent evidence of success was amplified by the release of the first generation of Pokemon Go in 2016 and the succeeding generations that later followed it. In an article published on Forbes website (Yes, Pokemon is Forbes-worthy!), it seems likely that the fourth generation will be released by May or June this year. It is also interesting to note that in 2016, Pokemon Go was also awarded as the Best Mobile and Handheld Game in The Game Awards 2016. The availability of the game on both iOS and Android smartphones has paved the way for more than 75 million people to play the game, making it land on the list of the Best Pokemon Games of the 21st century presented by Metacritic. Indeed, Pokemon fans are all excited for all that has yet to come.

    "Pokemon Reborn is pretty fun and amazing to play. I am a big fan of Pokemon and this game does not disappoint. Basically, the game is post apocalyptic pokemon. The villains and other characters are entertaining and believable. The scenery is interesting and imaginative. There is even some beautiful cinematic moments which I found enjoyable. Be warned that it has a lot of swearing and some violence. "

    "I love Pokemon games, but sometimes I want to play something a little different. Pokemon Fire Ash is a fan-made game that loosely follow the anime. You get to play as Ash Ketchum, which is really interesting and fun. You also get to see all of his companions from the anime and there are over 50 gyms to defeat. All the Pokemon are there and it's super fun! I highly recommend this game if you love the Pokemon games and want a game that is like the anime."

    "Could be a good fan-made Pokemon game but I'd be a little hesitant to download it until I'd done some research to see at least a few people who've downloaded it without a virus or other problem. There is a wiki and chat but their Pokemon-VN_works link at the top right leads to a 404 page not found error, which gives me less confidence in the product and the site."
