During the height of the worldwide quarantine, one artist set out on a journey of creativity that would win over Pokemon fans everywhere. In May, spriter and visionary artist DazzyDeer stoked the fires of imagination by embarking on a massive project: the creation of Pokemon Quarantine Crystal. QuarantineDex, a project started in response to odd questions on 4chan’s famous /vp/ board, eventually gave birth to this unique Fakemon Pokedex.
The core concept of the project is to create a unique gaming experience out of the difficulties of a worldwide quarantine. DazzyDeer’s original goal was modest: to have the Fakemon of Generation 2 replace the original Pokemon. As the work progressed, however, it grew into something more ambitious and collaborative. Minisprites, artwork, and more were all contributed by the good people of /vp/ to bolster the game’s huge world.
DISCOVERING A MYSTERIOUS NEW AREA
Step into a world brimming with unfathomable secrets, where dozens of undiscovered Pokemon are waiting to be caught. Pokemon Quarantine Crystal, with its almost 200 newly created animals, is an unknown territory for budding trainers. The game’s innovative approach continues with the introduction of the pioneering Physical/Special divide, drastically altering the nature of battle.
A QUEST FOR REJUVENATION
