    "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!"

    "I love this game and I can't stop playing it... My most favorite pokemon is probably the Delta Haxorus that I have. I love all of the new mega evolutions and the entire concept of the Delta species. All of the cults are fantastic. Great Job on the Insurgence team's part!!"

    "this is by far the best Pokemon game that has been released. Its better than even the officials, just the delta part of the game on its own is just amazing. The story is just very well made and clear throughout the game, and the elite four is probably the hardest yet using well planned game strats to blast through your team. In short the game is a Mastapees"

    "Dont get me wrong this game is great but i personally found it to be really easy and the story to be less compelling than many others. For instance you get delta haxorus (a steel/water type) right before fairy gym, and it can sweep through it solo with 1 move without any issues, there are other cases of the same later on as well"

    "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. "

    "This game is massive, that is the first thing you need to know. No thoer game comes even close to rivaling it's insane horde of sidequests and bonus content, you can easily spend literally hundreds of hours exploring it. Second the story is, sure, but you also get so much more emotionally invested in the story, and the plot is a million times better than opther games. Third, it is difficult. Very difficult. This is no joke, be warned: You probably need to train either a constantly updating team or a 12 pokemon roster to beat the game first time. Fourth: The game has field effects which really spice up the battle - learn more on the wiki page. Overall this game is a solid 9/10 and is only beaten by rejuvenation cause rejuv story is a little better and the pokemon/tm availability is more reasonable in rejuv. Love this game to death and reborn+rejuv got me out of depression, so yeah, they mean something to me"

    "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."

I wanted to play it on my Android phone and i read on Youtube that you need an emulator to do that and most people say that i need to download the RGSS Player so i'll try that. And i'll get back on this. But still i like this game that is why i want to play it on my andorid phone"

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."
