A developer has showed off the video game he's been working on over the past month
After seeing that Nintendo makes more than $100 billion off of Pokémon and that the most popular video games are shoot 'em ups, Dragon_GameDev2 wanted to combine the two to make something amazing.
In a YouTube video explaining how he brought this epic idea to fruition, he caveated to Nintendo that he has no intentions of actually selling this game.
Using Unreal Engine, the game developer and his team took inspiration from the great first person shooters (FPS) like Overwatch, Halo and Call of Duty.
Once they found the right pack to supply all their weapons and blood splatter components, they went in search for a map that would fit with their Pokémon aesthetic.
They settled on the 'Stylised Forest' mod that let them create a bunch of trees, plants, logs and grass, which was a dream match for their project.
The team divided the map up into three areas, with each zone containing more difficult Pokémon to gun down. They also held a battle arena where you get to fight against a legendary Pokémon.
But when it came time to doing the models and animation section, it took a hell of a lot of brain and computer power.
Dragon said it took six programs to convert the Pokémon into Unreal Engine, and then they were able to morph the characters in the way they wanted for the FPS.
They managed to develop character behaviours for dozens of Pokémon after ironing out a few of the kinks.
The team had to then divide the characters into different categories based on whether they're considered static, a critter, a charger, a flyer, a projectile, or a chaser.
The boss battles are particularly incredible because they each have their own unique world where the rare Pokémon can manipulate their surroundings to make it harder for you to win.
The bosses also had some pretty epic attacks to deplete your health.
The results speak for themselves: after debuting a teaser on social media, people have absolutely praised Dragon and the team for putting together one hell of a game.
Too bad it will never actually be able to be played by anyone, but maybe this will give Nintendo some ideas on their next game.
