Pokémon Insurgence looks set to be one of the most interesting Pokémon games to ever have been made but it’s not coming from Nintendo. Instead, the game is being developed by a group of dedicated fans led by Reddit user thesuzerain.

This isn’t the first Pokémon fan title that thesuzerain has developed. He originally gained fame in the Nintendo community for creating Pokémon Omega and Pokémon Omicrom. Developed in RPG Maker XP, Insurgence is the follow-up to his original project.

The game is set in the new Torren region and has a dark story about warring groups of cultists. The main draw of the game is the sheer amount of features it has.  Each generation of Pokémon games introduces features which are only used for that particular region. The goal of Insurgence is to combine all of those features together into one game. That means that you’ll have mega evolutions, customizations, and Pokémon following you round, all in the same game for the first time.

Insurgence is also adding in some new features of its own. The game allows you to customise your campaign with various challenges. For example, you can choose to play a Nuzlocke challenge run in which the game will automatically release any Pokémon that faints.

So far there is no set release date for Pokémon Insurgence  but thesuzerain is planning to release a demo by the end of the month. For more information about Insurgence, check out the game’s wiki.
