Pokemon was my childhood and I’m still extremely fond of the anime and games today. I decided that I would start working on a Pokemon inspired game.
I’m currently trying to decide on the capture device. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically what you would use to capture the creatures in the game. Like the Pokeball. As the game is inspired by Pokemon I decided that I would have one rule I would have to design around which is that the capture device needs to be thrown.
I decided upon a square design as I knew if it was a sphere then Nintendo would 100% strike thy hammer on my game.
I’ve come up with this design:
This is what the capture device would when it has no creature inside ie when it’s being thrown.
If it has a creature inside. the grey lines will become blue which you’ll see when you send a creature into battle.
(Just incase you was wondering, the blue will pulse when the game decides if you’ve caught the creature or not).
This is the second iteration so far. I plan to adapt it over time as I want to have different types of them such as ones with better catch rates and ones that boost specific stats.
Would Nintendo be able to take my game over my current design for the capture device in my Pokemon inspired game?
