So when i was younger (around third grade) I had a friend of mine who always let me borrow some of his gameboy games when I had mine. One day at the after school program i was in he showed me that he had this game called “pokemon diamond”, it was a super fake cover but as a kid i thought it was crazy that it even existed. This game changed how I saw pokemon completely since it was put out to be a pokemon game. I DIDNT EVEN KNOW THEY MADE FAKE GAMES??!
Keitai Denjū Telefang (Japanese: 携帯電獣テレファング Hepburn: Keitai Denjū Terefangu?, lit. “Mobile Phone Beast Telefang”) is a series of role-playing video games (RPGs) developed by Smilesoft and published by Natsume. In the games, the player contacts various creatures using a mobile phone-like device in order to get them to battle the foes he or she will encounter. Released exclusively in Japan on November 3, 2000, the first game in the series was released for the Game Boy Color in two versions: Power Version (パワーバージョン Pawā Bājon?) and Speed Version (スピードバージョン Supīdo Bājon?). Each version features several exclusive creatures. The name of the series derives from keitai (携帯?), the Japanese term for mobile phone, as making phone calls to the creatures is an integral part of the games, and fang, to symbolize the various beasts involved.
Like YOU CALLED YOUR “ELECTRIC MONSTERS” TO BATTLE???? what…..(literally you call your monsters on a cell phone).This was one of the weirdest things I have ever experienced and now that I look back on it, it was actually kind of interesting. still weird as fuck though….
what threw me off thinking it was an actual legit pokemon game is that it had a simillar battle style where you would take turns attacking but, the opponent was the bottom right hand side rather than it being on the top left.
They dont even faint…..they’re overthrown. I thought fainting was one thing but being OVERTHROWN! is a whole other ballpark. This game never made any sense to me and I didnt even make that far in it but i’ll never forget it that’s for sure.
it did have cool music though….
this has been poke’rants with nature.
