Pokemon has always been a beloved IP amongst its large fanbase, but even the newer games seem to be missing a certain touch that the older games had. Whether it be the classic top-down view, the pixelated art style, or for me personally, the challenge. Over the years there have been a plethora of fan games trying to bring back that spark the older generations had. Recently an ambitious un-licensed Pokemon game called Phoenix Rising hit the web. This fan-made game offers what fans like myself have been wanting from Gamefreak for many years.
