Ark: Survival Evolved has a mod allowing players to hunt Pokemon.
A modder by the name of Mystic Academy recently released a mod in Ark called "Pokemon Evolved". The mod turns creatures in the game into Pokemon you can hunt. While this is an amazing mod, you should download it asap if you want to experience it for yourself, as we are sure it probably violates many Nintendo rights and policies. We expect to see this mod removed rather soon than later.
“The reality is, the way that online experiences have progressed, it’s an expensive proposition. The amount of servers we need to support Smash Brothers or Mario Kart — these big multiplayer games — is not a small investment.” Reggie Fils-Aime stated in a recent interview with CNET.
While I'm sure this change will not be welcomed by all. It's a necessary change for Nintendo to make their console/mobile hybrid successful in sales and multiplayer experience. So don't be too quick to judge! I'm sure your paying the same for PlayStation network and Xbox Live anyways.
