If anyone is interested in a Pokemon clone style game, there were some worth checking out that were released this year. I know some have been in development prior to 2020 but they are “officially” complete as of this year.
Temtem (PC, PS5)
- This is one that I have tried. It seems to be more evenly balanced and not as hand-holdy as Pokemon which is great for older kids and adults who want to enjoy this style of game.
Nexomon: Extinction (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
- I have not tried this one but I have a friend who plays it and actually enjoys it more than Pokemon so it might be worth some fans checking out.
Monster Sanctuary (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
- This one is the least like Pokemon but the core is the same and that is what seems to matter most. While I think this is a fun game, it won’t be for all Pokemon fans.
