Pokemon ‘Rip-Off’ DokeV Looks Better Than Actual Pokemon

  • DokeV is an upcoming ‘creature capturing’ MMO.
  • It comes from Pearl Abyss, developers of Black Desert Online.
  • DokeV will be coming out on PC and major consoles.

Pokemon Sword and Shield games have clearly disappointed many people with the dex cull and lack of graphical upgrades. If you’re one of those disappointed masses, then you’re in luck. Seems like someone is finally going to step up and try to take the series’ ‘creature collecting’ crown with a game called DokeV.

DokeV is an MMO from Pearl Abyss, the South Korean developers behind the hugely successful Black Desert Online. BDO is well known for a high-graphical fidelity, being one of the best looking MMO’s on the market. DokeV seems like it’s going to keep that trend going because the trailer just dropped and so did my jaw.

DokeV Looks Amazing

If you take a look at the trailer, you might be forgiven for thinking it was pre-rendered. The truth is, at least according to the developers, that it’s all in-game graphics. If that’s true, then this is potentially one of the best looking video games of all time.

The trailer shows off some impressive aesthetics, aside from just how high-quality the graphics are. Everything in-game is rendered in a very soft, brightly colored style. The game is supposed to be child-friendly and appeal to all ages, and with visuals that pop this much, it’s easy to see that happening.

Look at That Creature Design

The creatures also seem pretty damn great. Maybe it’s because they were designed with 3D in mind from the get-go, but they all seem to be bursting with character. Personally I can’t decide which I like more, the hat-wearing, water-gun-dual-wielding duck or the panda with boxing gloves. DokeV seems to have escaped the trap of simply jamming two things or animals together like Pokemon does.
