Pokemon is one of the best selling franchises of all time. Check it out, it’s true. If you have something that popular, as these games show, people will try to rip it off. However, if you are looking for something different, you might find some enjoyment in these games.
Let’s start with the one that is clearly a rip off. temtem puts you in a world where you are destined to be a “monster tamer”. Got it? Because they don’t want to be called “trainers”? It’s subtle, but it’s there.
Anyway, you will go to a mysterious floating archipelago and try to catch, train and fight a variety of monsters that you encounter.
The game is everything Pokemon is; It’s just that this title is an MMORPG. That’s correct; other players roam around the islands, which means you can fight people around the world during gameplay. If nothing else, it has to do with the OG series.
#10 Chocobo Mystery Dungeon: Every Dude
Chocobo Mystery Dungeon: Every Dude is a very long name, but what would you expect from a JRPG title that tries to show both cuteness and depth?
This game is more of a rip off Pokemon Mystery Dungeon franchise than the main series. Here you will explore endless dungeons and fight monsters on your way. The world changes every time you take a step, move/use an item, or anything else. That means you have time to think about your next move or just jump in and see what happens.

To do this, you make pacts with different types of monsters on the island and work together with them to defeat other monsters.
A fun twist is that you can fuse monsters to create new species. Also, the end of the game will be determined by your choices.
Ooblets put a twist on the Pokemon Play by making it more about fun than fighting. Because the only “battles” you’ll fight in this title are card-based dance-offs! Yes, it’s as ridiculous as it sounds, although Star-Lord would likely be a part of it.
Also, like certain other titles of this generation, you get a farm that you can manage, renovate and improve. So take it from the shack you start with to a massive farm full of crops from different worlds.
As you gather items and materials, you can open a shop to sell them! This gives you even more variety in the game.
