What is Pokémon Uranium?
Pokémon Uranium is a fan-made Pokémon game that took over nine years to develop. The fan project amassed over 1.5 million downloads in that time.
Another unique feature offered by Pokémon Uranium is that it offers you a selection of character portraits to pick from and does not label gender on any of them. This game gives its larger plot more significance early, which gives it more narrative depth.
Pokémon Uranium works by giving you a quiz and assigning you a starter relating to your game play style.
The fan-made game was released on PC in August and includes Red/Blue gameplay. The game is also currently only for PC with a Mac version in the works.
The game has unique dual-type starters and also introduces a new region, the Tandor Region, along with over 150 new Pokémon, eight new gyms and new legendaries.
