Pokemon online, a Battle simulator

While searching online for more information relating to the new Pokémon series, White and Black, I came across a website called Pokemon Online. Pokemon Online is a downloadable program that allows you to have pokemon battles on your PC with people all over the world… according to their description.

This is the most up to date Pokemon Battle Simulator that allows a person to experience real time Pokemon battles against Pokemon players from all over the globe. Its created using the programming language C++ and its currenly running in beta stage.

The game play is not at all sophisticated but very much related to the original Pokemon game. Furthermore, it has got an explicit ranking system, tiers and a user friendly interface which fulfills the need of all the competitive players out there today. It even allows a player to battle and chat simultaneously.

It seems like a good idea, but I’m sure Nintendo will be shutting them down sooner or later. Yet, has anyone tried this simulator, and does it sound like something Nintendo should release themselves?

    Well, ShoddyBattle has been running for years, and was even actively promoted on the old NSider forums, so I think that this should be pretty safe.

    Haven’t tried this particular simulator, but as Xelpud said before, Shoddy Battle and Netbattle have been running for quite a long time and have been safe from Nintendo’s legal team.

  3. Mofax says:

    Well, as long as they’re not making a profit off of Nintendo’s liscence, the people running the simulators are perfectly safe. It is within their rights to do whatever they want with these characters as long as they aren’t making money.

    You couldn’t possibly be more wrong Mofax. Just because you’re not making money off it doesn’t mean that you’re not engaging in copyright and trademark infringement. Fair use is not a 100% protection to every single kind of activity you might engage in. Every single fansite, my own Bulbagarden/Bulbapedia included, treads a very very fine road, where we exist only at the whim of the companies. So long as we’re an asset to them, and our presence is better than our not being there, we’ll continue to stay around. But the line is there, somewhere, and those who cross it get ripped down mercilessly. Top-tier Pokémon fansites have been taken out before, or had C&D’s sent to them over some portion of their activities, most notably PokémonPalaceNetwork a couple of years back, and the old POL project on Bulbagarden going back a decade or so.

    Nintendo’s taken down plenty of these kinds of things before. The only reason they haven’t targeted them more in the past is because they didn’t pose a threat to their operations. So long as these stay in the realm of the hardcore gamer who still purchases all the products anyway….they’re not so worried. If however these things reach a certain threshold of mainstream popularity in the fan community, or they start doing things that Nintendo wants to get more heavily involved in (such as, say, if Nintendo decides they want to encourage more online battling on the Wii or DS with the Black & White generation), then they will be ripped apart.
