There are many Pokemon hacks out there, but Pokemon My Ass may be one of the funniest I have come across. This is actually a hack of the Game Boy Advance game, Pokemon Fire Red so if you have played that game before, you will feel right at home here. Just be warned that this is one Pokemon hack that is certainly not suitable for little Pokemon fans, but that is a huge part of the appeal for this game. It is kind of like if Seth Macfarlane made a Pokemon game!
Gotta Catch Them All Dumbass!
Where to start with the story of Pokemon My Ass? This is a more vulgar take on the world of Pokemon. What you have here is a Pokemon trainer who has some serious tude! If you are playing as the boy character you will be wearing a cap and no shirt! If you are playing as the girl character you will be playing as a girl in lingerie! What does this have to do with anything??? I honestly am not sure.
The real selling point of this game is the way it changes things. Some of the humor here is very funny and really quite offensive which I will admit made me laugh. If you like things like South Park or Family Guy, you will be fine here. Saying that though, while this is certainly a more profanity-filled take on the world of Pokemon it does not quite go as full-on as you may be thinking.
Do not get me wrong, seeing Brock have a leather outfit and not being sure of his sexuality is amusing, but the game could have been way more risqué and I think it would have been even better for it. Some of the banter between trainers is great and then others do suffer from strange translations where it is like something was missed during the translation.
What About The Gameplay?
A few changes have been made to the gameplay, but I am not so sure these are for the best. This is still a fun Pokemon game and those who have played Pokemon Fire Red before will get the hang pretty quickly. The issue with the game is that some of the trainer’s difficulties have been ramped up really high and it can be a little on the frustrating side to take them down.
Overall, I think that if you like toilet and offensive humor that you will probably get a few chuckles out of what Pokemon My Ass is offering. I just wonder what it would have been like had they gone full rated R with this instead of dancing around it a bit. If you like Pokemon and want to play a rather different kind of Pokemon experience, give this one here a look.
