Gnoggin, hosted by its creator Lockstin, is a show delving into the mysteries of Pokemon! (and other games sometimes too). Explaining everything there is to explain! Why is each Pokemon given the type it has? What are their origins? What is the lore of the Pokemon world and the design inspirations? And what does it all have to do with alchemy? Let's Go find out!

      Por un lado cabezas y jefes de cada organización criminal de pokemon y por otro los gym leaders con los élite y los protagonistas de cada generación, serás desalmado y te iras por la libre o serás bueno siguiendo las reglas como entrenador novato? El jugador elije y también con que aliados y formas de hacerlo junto sus estarters pokemon, si le gusta como te los dan o quedarte con alguna de las evoluones futuras impredecibles, como jugar con tu fuego volador y terminarlo y aprende ataques de esos tipos, sino la segunda evolución de fuego eléctrico que es más veloz y ofensivo que blaizeken o el que tira a legendario fuego hielo que tiene pocas desventajas? Tu elijes igual los demás estarters de agua y planta, podría haber otros pokemon similares en esta tendencia pero según como juegues, explorer si usas las habilidades de pokemon y tu personaje para navegar mapas de día y noche, climas y tierra, aire y bajo agua, pues para historia y explorer, achivment los retos, los jefes y oponentes, killer ser sucio y entrar a batalla pokemon por la espalda o con hacerle algo a estatus del entrenador o de los pokemon que deja fuera de sus pokeballs y sociliser, de como sea con otros jugadores por Internet y 2 por mapa de cada juego, sugerencia.

      Los líderes no son de gimnasios, vas por las cabezas y por los jefes de equipos de villanos de otras organizaciones del mundo pokemon y por sus secretos, aditamentos, pokemon y hasta emm adn, con ciertas desiciones que ya hacían como los aumetadores de stats de los primeros juegos y cosas de trampa e ilegales, tanto eso como poderlos crear y más, como rare candyes si no hay tiempo o eres un anti héroe, junto otras trampas de los fans mejoradas para no perder tiempo en este nuevo juego.

    • Nazeer Sadek
      Nazeer Sadek

      As far as I remember the devs didn’t announce the game as a Pokémon killer it’s the media and UZmilkr who overhyped this game for clicks for me personally I’m waiting for the full release before I can make a final judgement on the game

  • five two-one 4 five one
    five two-one 4 five one

    Pokemon got too big for its own good and has been for awhile now. It becomes obvious when a new game of the same genre has a way better consistency as far as great looking designs go. Hope some of these pokemon-like games eventually dethrone pokemon, it needs to be humbled.

  • NazzyDragon

    That's... actually a good ad. I didn't skip it. Cool concept, might actually use an ad for the first time literally ever.

    Dear Lockstin, you did so well on that tem tem video, maybe you could tackle other "magic monster- like games". Digimon or My singing monsters would be cool. Lots of people want to know those name meanings too. -Yours sinsirly, a fan

    Most of these names are terrible. There's a reason that GameFreak localizes their names. Toxolotl and Noxolotl are good, though.

    Nidrasil might be referencing king Guido rah with it’s three heads two aggressive heads (ichi and ni) and one not aggressive head (Kevin)

  • lolaseiss

    12:37 just wait for gamefreak to pull a reverse uno and make it a cute sheep 🐑 🔥 even cuter than wooloo. And for just fun speculation I hope it’s done as a reference to the Golden Fleece from Greek mythology, Bc red with gold is my aesthetic, infernape best final starter evo come @ me. But also bc Pokémon love to do stuff with alchemy they could make the whole line reference the saying “turn lead to gold” by having them turn from a lump of lead into spun gold. Also a pun on lead the minerals & leadership (since sheep are usually followers it’s a commoner becoming a king 👑.) Its final evo could be a fire/steel type bc of the gold and let’s be real, nobody remembers heatran, the fire/steel legendary that looked like a fat toad. (If any of this comes true screencap plz)

    Am I the only one who thinks platypet looks like that fake water starter leak

    • Nazeer Sadek

      It’s because it is one the Kickstarter backers invested enough money to allow them to add a monster into the game and they added the platypus fakemon

    18:11 actually interestingly Saber Leomon is not associated with fire and is in fact more generally associated with the element of the wind, a more apt example from Digimon would be the Coronamon line

    I wish Mouflank was a real pokemon instead of Gogoat. They should switch. I could see Skidoo evolving into Mouflank much more than Gogoat. I also like Yowlar much better that Beartic. XD

      @Justin Reed Its just that out of all the other games, like Digimon, and yo-kai watch, this is the game people are saying is going to kill pokemon. What I'm saying is while other games are called rip offs the game thats the most similar to pokemon is praised

    • Justin Reed
      Justin Reed

      yeah definitely, it’s battle system with stamina, synergies, holds, no rng, more status effects, player housing, mmo-like features such as raids, global chat, being able to interact with those around you, player guilds, full co-op and daily and weekly quests isn’t creative, especially compared to Pokémon 😐

    i like temtem but, earning exp is INCREDIBLY hard and tons of horrible grinding

  • TowerHaunt

    Actually I've played pokemon since I was a small child and... I like Temtem more... Crema (The company) is actively listening to the community and working with them to create Temtem the fans like as well as adding features and QOL improvements that matter the most. The game is beautiful without turning your PC into an oven and almost all Temtem have some value so you don't end up the one person not able to be competitive just because you like a specific one. The game has no microtransactions, no premium plans, no subs- anything thats in the game can be obtained with good old fashioned hard work and they just increased EXP yield to help new players get their fangs in as well as older players who want to make new teams. The big point is Crema isn't treating this like a money printer like Nintendo has been doing Pokemon recently. While I liked Sword and Shield I feel like a bit more listening on the community side would have saved it from so much backlash. But the end all of it is that Temtem IS NOT Pokemon. While they're both in the same genre Temtem is actively setting itself apart and I really like that. The difficulty in Temtem is also higher than any pokemon I've played in a LONG TIME. Battles feel rewarding and I feel like my efforts are rewarded. There's also a massive competitive scene for those who want it and because of Crema actually monitoring the game well there is no such thing as hacked Temtem making their way in. Noone has hacked temtem.

  • Erableto

    I think Saipat is a reference to Psyduck, because "Sai" sounds like "Psy" and "pat" is almost "duck" in Spanish (almost because it lacks the "o" of "pato").

  • Erableto

    I think Mudrid is also based on Madrid, the capital city of Spain, because it sounds just like that.

    So its basically a Pokeclone..... like early FPS were "Doom Clones," that over time _Kinda_ diversified in time. Question being how does it play and if it fixes on the RNG'ism flaws of Pokemon?

    • Justin Reed
      Justin Reed

      there is no rng in temtem’s combat, instead the battle system involves double battles, stamina instead of pp and synergies between certain moves and temtem so it does play quite different

Indie company: h-hi, I'm a new company and I'm making a game, similar to Pokémon but I'm trying to bring some new things and emulate the original Pokémon experience. Pokémon community: hmm Okey, I'll give you 5 minutes, if you don't destroy Pokémon company in 5 minutes and create a revolutionary saga of rpgs I'm going to bury you and laugh in your grave for even trying to make something. -What?
