    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "Funny how Dragon City is ranked number 1 on this site and from a couple of other sites I visited when looking for the best alternative game for Pokemon. I've seen comments that it is so unlike Pokemon that it should be taken down. Well, you know what? That is why it is called an ALTERNATIVE game!!!! I wish those guys would play Zombie games in real life because they'll be safe. The Zombies will not pay them much attention. Why? Because it seems like they don't have brains at all!!! LOL!!! I just vented. Dragon City is a fun game with a great storyline and very good graphics for a free game!"

I have not grown bored once since downloading it. I really like the game play and the look of the game, and it is a lot of fun breeding different hybrids of the dragons. If you are looking for a fun game, and you like dragons, then download this game today!"

      "I was sick of playing Pokemon, since I had played it since I was a child. I still loved the mechanics and visuals of the game of Pokemon, so I wanted to try something similar. WorkeMon is great because it looks like Pokemon's graphics and has a cartoon-like feel. It has a trainer, a turn-based RPG battle system resembling Pokemon, and there is a progress of growth throughout the game."

      "WorkeMon is a brilliant twist on the successful Pokemon games. It takes popular concepts from the Pokemon series and Implements wonderfully in this game. Instead of Pokemon you have something called WorkeMons, which work for you. This is very fun and definitely will fill the void of Pokemon."

      "Now, this is the best Pokemon alternative for me. I grew up watching both Pokemon and Digimon on TV and I know the history of both games. What drew me to Pokemon was Pikachu of course but as I grew up, I made the unconscious switch to Digimon. Maybe because I felt like Pokemon was for kids and Digimon, with its more serious tone, is a game for young adults. Now, this game is very similar, yet in a lot of sense, very different from Pokemon. I've played it with my kids and they definitely share their old man's love of Digimon."

The digital world out there is full of bad guys, when you think about it, adpating a warrior mentality and enlisting teammates against them sounds like a good way to go (and train.)"

    DID YOU KNOW

    Did you know that there was a card game developed based on the Pokemon video game and is called Pokemon Trading Card Game? While it is of the essence to consider that Pokemon Go has recently overtaken all other smartphone games in 2016 with an accumulated revenue of 1.2 billion US dollars and over 75 million players, surpassing the number of Twitter users, Pokemon’s card game version still remains classic to date. Pokemon card’s gameplay is simple; players assume the role of a Pokemon trainer and use their Pokemon against their opponent’s. The certain amount of damage that is dealt by a Pokemon plays a vital role for it is through it that players determine whose Pokemon is knocked out by who. Since it was published in 1996 by Media Factory in Japan, this collectible game has become a timeless craze for kids all over the world trade. Its engaging and addictive nature makes the kids and the not-so-kids go crazy about the gameplay. In fact, there is actually a Pokemon trading card league that serves as a great avenue for fans to get together and have some fun. If you are competitive enough, you can also join and play at the annual Pokemon World Championship. Interestingly, according to James Anderson’s article on Hi-Tech Chronicle, analysts projected 2018 as a good year for digital trading card game alongside the going popularity of board games today as a means of entertainment. In fact, the Pokemon company is exerting unprecedented efforts and investing an amount of money to put out high-quality trading card games.

But they run into Pokemon and Digimon so as they say, the rest is history. Digimon also suffered due to Pokemon's domination. It's nice to see these games back again. Especially for Monster Rancher. I have always been a fan of this and the game took me back in time. It has the feel of the old show and the gameplay in this game is superb. So unlike Pokemon that it deserves to be included in this best alternative list to Pokemon."

Yo-Kai Watch 2 is an amazing sequel because it that takes all of them game play, rules, and game design from what worked in the first game, refines the playing process and smooths out the wrinkles by expanding the frontiers in all the right directions creating an Role Playing Game (RPG) that kids literally become hooked on, non-stop. It might appear as though it is a Pokémon clone, but it's actually a big, immersive sandbox adventure with some great ideas of its own. It reminds me of a blend of Final Fantasy and Zelda games. I was playing it for a few hours and my step-son was getting upset because I would not share the controller. The style, comedy, and varying difficulty level settings will make it a RPG aimed for younger players, but don't dismiss it even if you like your RPG games to have dark themes and adult humor. You never know, Yo-Kai Watch 2 might be exactly what you need even if you are an Adult."

      "I am not a fan of Pokemon but I do like playing MMORPG. Minimon is a great MMORPG, there's no question. What turned me off is that it actually feels like a kid's game? But then, the game's targets are Pokemon lovers so I do understand why it was built that way. Still a good, solid MMORPG game."

      "Deity Quest is an RPG where you have divine magic. The goal is to convert followers, grow in power, and become an over-god. There is much competition, including six versus six battles. You can be a single player or join multi-player games. It's $9.99 for the base version - not bad for something that can provide hours upon hours of engaging entertainment."

      "Generations is a relatively new game but it is still a game based on Pokemon. You can argue that it could be an alternative since it is not really the official game. But it could be the official game as it uses the official characters found in the game. That said, it is still a nice game before it got shot down. Now that it's back, I expect it to make back on top and be taken down again!!! LOLOLOLOL"

I shouldn't have downloaded this but I was itching to get my hands into alternative games. This game, while it is ok, IS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED it to be. So bummed about this."

If some of the features from this game were added to Sun and Moon and especially Pokemon Go it'd improve those games a lot, but Insurgance as a stand alone mostly fails."

Pokemon Insurgence is just what Pokemon fans will love because it's made by fans, for fans. I would tell you more about it but I'd rather be catching Pokemon."

Pokemon Insurgence allows me to keep my childhood interests alive, and I've grown to like the way that it allows me to trade online. I've even gotten some of my friends into it! It can be addicting, but in a good way."
