A Youtuber by the name of Requag made a near-perfect replica of Pokemon Fire Red for the Gameboy Advance in Minecraft. This Poké-craft crossover is only the beginning for Requag, who is planning much larger Minecraft interactive additions in the future.
Thanks to the new 1.10 update for Minecraft, players are now able to create Structure Blocks. Here’s what Searge, a developer at Mojang, said about them, “it’s basically saving templates and then copying them back into the world at any position. The nice feature is that every structure can be rotated or mirrored when it’s placed”. Meaning that a player can build any structure and replicate it later with ease. Requag took that “copy and paste” concept to another level when he created an entire Pokémon game using the new mechanics.
Requag’s Pokémon emulation doesn’t include a lot of the game’s basic features such as combat or dialogue, but players shouldn’t be worried because Requag has announced on Youtube that he will continue updating the project with those functions. His goal is to recreate a fully functional version of Pokémon Fire Red for Minecraft players to enjoy.
People eager to try out the basic version of this creation can play it without any mods. They just need to have a working copy of Minecraft version 1.10. You can click this link if you’d like to download this Pokémon/Minecraft combination.
