Who wants to play Pokemon, in VR?

Dumb question really. I should have just posted the download link and waited for the applause to roll in. Of course you should probably also send some praise via the developer's way too, since they're now the first person to give us the ability to throw pokeballs with our real hands and command our Pokemon with voice commands. You know, like we pretend to do when no one else is around.


The only downside to this awesome looking experience, is not many people will actually be able to play it properly. On top of needing an Oculus Rift DK2 headset for the virtual reality aspect, you'll also need a Leap Motion controller to give you the hand function; making this game only playable by a niche few. If you do want to download it though, you can do so here.

Audio commands are a little easier, since they only require a headset and the Voice Attack software.

Still it's interesting to dream of what a future Pokemon game like this could be like. As long as Nintendo doesn't shut it down to ‘protect' its IP.

  1. This is really interesting! It reminds me of an anime called Sword Art Online.

  2. That anime is why I’m buying the first commercial Occulus the second it comes out

  3. this would be really nice if there were voice commands, like the anime and the pokemon would attack according the the command.

  4. this has extreme potential fix up the controls and make a indiegogo page for it it will rake in millions.

  5. Pls nintendo. This is the sort of thing dreams are made of. I mean, a wiiu pokemon rpg would sell tons and they haven’t done that yet, but hey, it’s worth hoping for this too.
