      "If you can't get enough of Pokemon like me, Pokemon Insurgence is a great fan-made game that really ties well with the authentic Pokemon games. The game is fun and expands on many of the elements I love about playing Pokemon, lately Insurgence has gotten more game-play by me than the Pokemon originals!"

      "I had never thought of playing a fan-made game. Then I happened to find out information about Pokemon Insurgence. I tried Pokemon Insurgence and it has exceeded my expectations and is one of the best fan-made Pokemon games I've ever played. It's addictive and enjoyable."

      "this is by far the best Pokemon game that has been released. Its better than even the officials, just the delta part of the game on its own is just amazing. The story is just very well made and clear throughout the game, and the elite four is probably the hardest yet using well planned game strats to blast through your team. In short the game is a Mastapees"

      "I love Pokemon games, but sometimes I want to play something a little different. Pokemon Fire Ash is a fan-made game that loosely follow the anime. You get to play as Ash Ketchum, which is really interesting and fun. You also get to see all of his companions from the anime and there are over 50 gyms to defeat. All the Pokemon are there and it's super fun! I highly recommend this game if you love the Pokemon games and want a game that is like the anime."

The villains and other characters are entertaining and believable. The scenery is interesting and imaginative. There is even some beautiful cinematic moments which I found enjoyable. Be warned that it has a lot of swearing and some violence."

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that Pokemon is short for Pocket Monster? Topping the list of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time, Pokemon, owned by Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures, has surely made a hallmark in the industry of film, television series, and most especially in the field of video game, garnering a total revenue of 53.49 billion yen since its year of inception in 1996. The three companies have worked hand-in-hand from Pokemon’s humble beginnings as a pair of video games for Game Boy, developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo, to its unprecedented success today. 

    Its most recent evidence of success was amplified by the release of the first generation of Pokemon Go in 2016 and the succeeding generations that later followed it. In an article published on Forbes website (Yes, Pokemon is Forbes-worthy!), it seems likely that fourth generation will be released by May or June this year. It is also interesting to note that in 2016, Pokemon Go was also awarded as the Best Mobile and Handheld Game in The Game Awards 2016. The availability of the game on both iOS and Android smartphones has paved the way for more than 75 million people to play the game, making it land on the list of the Best Pokemon Games of the 21st century presented by Metacritic. Indeed, Pokemon fans are all excited for all that has yet to come.

(that is coming from a huge Pokemon fan) IMO this game is a bit more mature than other Pokemon games out there because there are adult-y stuff on it. And i heard there is a new element in this called nuclear pokemon which I am yet to find. This are just my observations after playing this for just a week i might change my views on this though"

      "Could be a good fan-made Pokemon game but I'd be a little hesitant to download it until I'd done some research to see at least a few people who've downloaded it without a virus or other problem. There is a wiki and chat but their Pokemon-VN_works link at the top right leads to a 404 page not found error, which gives me less confidence in the product and the site."
