A downloadable game

First things first, this game is UNOFFICIAL, and has no connection to Nintendo or the Pokémon company. It is intended for recreational use and will always be free to download with no intentions to make any profit off of it. Please do not reuse or resell anything relating to Pokémon within it.

This is a collaborative storytelling game set in the Pokémon universe. It can be GM-led, Guided, GM-Less or used for solo play.  It is diceless and uses token mechanics similar to No Dice, No Masters games. 

In this game you can play small single session stories or long dramatic campaigns as any type of character you can think of in the Pokémon universe. Together you will define your Region, Towns, Locales, Trainers and Pokémon and using each of these aspects shape the narrative together through play.

Sessions have included a trek through a jungle into an ancient temple to prevent the awakening of Hoopa by an evil team, the arduous climb up a frozen volcano to have a wish granted by Jirachi, a battle inside a thunderstorm with Mega Ampharos atop a mountain, and many other wonderful stories.

If you play this game and enjoy it or are interested in playing it, please join us in the official discord server where we share stories from the game, organize sessions, and discuss upcoming content being worked on. 


Said about Pokémon Tales:

"Drawing closer to the animated series than just a crunchy battle simulation, the rules for Pokémon Tales actively help you tell great stories, instead of standing in the way of them." - Moss, Brewist Tabletop Games

"A perfectly tuned mix of freeform narrative and mechanics. It's the realest, most tangible the world of Pokémon has ever been to me." - Alyssa, Biscuit Fund Games

“A clever set of rules for telling any kind of Pokémon story you can think of, with inventive rules for narrative combat I’m jealous I didn’t think of first.” - Chloe, Biscuit Fund Games
