When it comes to Pokémon fan games, Pokémon Sage is one of the most famous of them all. This is not just a rom hack like many other fan games tend to be. One of the most interesting things about the game is that this was not made by hacking another Pokémon game, but it was made in RPG Maker instead.
A Whole New Worl…. Region
The setting here is pretty awesome and it is very clever. The region you will be playing in is called, Urobos. This region was created to resemble Latin America and it pulls this off very, very well. The story has you playing as a boy or girl Pokémon trainer and once again your quest to catch them all sees you get mixed up in a much bigger plot.
While a traditional Pokémon story is what Pokémon Sage has, it does play it quite safe. Not to say this is bad or anything like that. However, some other Pokémon fan games have taken bigger risks with the plot.
Hey, Who Are You?
One of the best things about this game is the Pokémon that you can capture. A ton of new Pokémon was created just for this game and that makes it pretty awesome. It also makes it a game that is far less predictable than other Pokémon fan games. Even the starter Pokémon that you can have, Aguade, Foliat, and Kidling are all created for this game. The Pokémon are heavily designed on actual species that you would find in Latin America so that is cool. The visuals of Pokémon Sage are fantastic. This is one way that I feel the fact the game was made with RPG Maker shines through. It gives the game a rather distinct look and a look that I feel works very well.
Do You Want To Be The Very Best?
The gameplay is heavily based around the fifth generation of Pokémon. Not much if anything new has been added to the gameplay. So, with that in mind, if you have played a Pokémon game before, you will feel right at home here. It in many ways feels like a basic Pokémon adventure, but that is something I do like about the game. Too many of these fan games try way too hard to do stuff that is “spectacular” and it very rarely actually works. With this game, you may not be getting anything radically new, but you are getting a solid Pokémon game.
I can see why so many people love Pokémon Sage. This is a very well-made fan game and one that is essential playing if you are a fan of Pokémon. The new region, characters, and of course that awesome selection of brand-new Pokémon make this a game that will keep you playing just to see what Pokémon you will encounter next.
