Pokemon Uranium Version is a New Fan Made Game
Browsing on imgur.com, I stumbled on a post introducing a new game, Pokemon Uranium Version.
Pokemon Uranium Version is developed by “~JV~”, a fan who decided to make a brand new Pokemon adventure. The title was made using the popular RPGmaker XP tool and is free to play. Officially, the game was released on August 6, 2016.
Just like classic titles from the original franchise, the goal is to explore the new region of Tandor and collect all 8 Gym Badges. This will allow you to participate in the Tandor Regional Championship, which is the equivalent of the Elite Four. As you travel, you must fill your Pokedex with over 150 different species!
“Pokemon Uranium takes place in the lush, diverse Tandor region, home to over 150 new and unique species of Pokemon. Tandor is known for its world famous Tandor Regional Championship, where Trainers from all across the Pokemon world compete for the honor of being crowned Champion. In order to qualify, they must first collect all 8 Gym Badges from various towns and cities across the region.
The Hero, a teenager who grew up in Moki Town, begins their adventure reluctantly. After their mother Lucille diappeared ten years ago in a nuclear catastrophe, their father Kellyn, the top Pokemon Ranger in the Tandor Ranger Unit, left them to grow up with their elderly Auntie in Moki Town. Now that they are grown up, they leave home and do what so many young people do and take up Pokémon Training as an occupation.
Professor Bamb’o, regional expert on Pokémon elements, has been looking for a trainer assistant to travel the region and gather specimens of the varied wildlife. the main character volunteers, along with their rival, a younger boy named Theo. After taking a test and receiving their starter Pokémon, they head towards your first gym challenge in Nowtoch city, and take their first steps exploring the Tandor region.
Things aren’t as sunny as they first seem, though. Just when the accident ten years ago had been all but forgotten, new mysteries emerge. A new power plant is built over the site of the old one. Kellyn begins acting strangely, journeying to the far reaches of the region and questioning whether your mother is really deceased. Sinister Pokemon, corrupted by nuclear radiation, threaten innocent people. In the midst of the turmoil, it seems that an impending disaster is looming over Tandor… “
Just like classic Pokemon games, you, the trainer, are asked to pick up a companion to start your journey. In Uranium, three new and unique starters have been introduced: Orchynx (Grass/Steel), Raptorch (Fire/Ground) and Eletux (Water/Electric).
