Pokemon Uranium is a fan-made Pokemon RPG that has been in development for over 9 years. Set in the tropical Tandor region, the player will encounter more than 150 all-new species of Pokemon in their quest to collect all 8 Gym Badges and triumph over the Tandor League. Along the way, the player must battle against a sinister threat that’s causing Nuclear Meltdowns, and will encounter an all-new type of Pokemon: the Nuclear type.
Your origin story is a little different as well. You’ll be playing as a 13-year old that has to leave their home out of necessity: your guardian can’t take care of you anymore. So you take up a research job: completing the Pokedex.
Interestingly, Uranium has a new type of Pokémon which isn’t featured in any of the official releases: Nuclear type. That’s probably not surprising given the name of the game, but still, it’s novel, no? Here’s how the developers describe the type:
Radiation seeping from nuclear power plants has unlocked a destructive new power in Nuclear Pokemon, a new element that is spreading across the Tandor region like a virus. Nuclear-type Pokemon are feral, corrupt versions of ordinary Pokemon, who won’t listen to a trainer but will attack anything in sight with destructive force. The only way to beat them is to attack them fast and quick, because Nuclear-type is unstable: in exchange for being super-effective on every other type, it is also weak to every other type.
For those of you looking for difficulty, the game features something optional called Nuzlocke Mode. Here’s how it works:
This game mode makes the game a much tougher challenge where each decision has consequences. The player is limited to capturing only one Pokemon per route, and once a Pokemon faints, you cannot revive it. There are other options to make the challenge even more difficult, including “Challenge Mode” which raises enemy Pokemon levels (but keeps experience yield the same), an option to disable the use of held items, and an option to prevent buying items from Poke Marts. This game mode will cater to the more hardcore Pokemon fans who are looking for a steeper challenge!
While you won’t be able to battle other trainers directly on Pokémon Uranium, the game does have some online features—which is rare in typical Pokémon fan games. You’ll be able to participate in Uranium’s version of the Global Trade Station, which allows players to trade with other players around the world. Trainers will also be able to upload their teams to something called the Virtual Trainer Database. Using this, players will be able to download an AI-controlled version of other players, and if they win, they’ll gain battle points. Yes, there’s a leaderboard—and prizes.
