Check Out The New Pokemon MMORPG Inspired By MonsterMMORPG: Will 'Pokemon Pets' Motivate Game Freak To Create Open World MMO In 2015?

Although Game Freak itself has not released a Pokemon MMORPG, Turkish PhD student Furkan Gözükara has created not one, but two monster MMOs for fans to enjoy.
Recently, Gözükara sat down with Siliconera to discuss the first Pokemon-inspired MMORPG he created for this thesis project. Previously called "Pokemon RPG," it is now an original title called "MonsterMMORPG" with 872,000 players.
"'MonsterMMORPG' became pretty popular due to a true and Pokemon-alike MMORPG, meeting the demand for one," said Gözükara.
"Being playable on basically every platform that has browser and internet connection is another reason. This lets people to play even on very old computers and restricted computers."
During the interview, he also spoke on his latest Pokemon MMORPG called "Pokemon Pets," which began in 2014.
"We were getting so many players from the Pokemon fan base requesting another game that used Pokémon instead of Monsters," continued Gözükara.
"I couldn't resist this demand: these people have a history with Pokemon and they love to see them, and they are more familiar with Pokémon than any new monsters. Having both games at least gives people the opportunity to choose."
But could 2015 be the year for Game Freak to finally release a true Pokemon MMORPG game?
This was the question ignited by Game Freak developer Tetsuya Watanaba at 4Gamer's year-end developer survey, when he teased the company's next project.
"We're doing a lot of different things with respect to our next project, so right now we're focusing on getting ready to announce it," said Watanaba. "We sincerely hope from the bottom of our hearts that it'll be worth checking out once we get to that point."
"Lucky, we at Game Freak are blessed with great workers. Because of that, I don't have to worry when I'm concentrating on new games like Pokemon X and Y and sequels are being handled by other Project Managers."
