    So to no shock to anyone, Nintendo had to go and ruin the party by sending multiple takedown notices to the creators of Pokemon Uranium.

    This might be the only fully custom Pokemon fangame that has been finished. At least it's the first one I've heard of. Definitely going to have to try it out sometime.
    I don't think you know how much effort it is making a full-length RPG from scratch. Even more so when they have to make sure they adhere to the already established battle mechanics, formulas and such. It takes a medium-sized professional team years to do, and these guys' team is probably much smaller than Game Freak.
    Most fangame projects of this kind are cancelled/abandoned long before they're finished, because it just takes an extreme amount of time invested into it to actually finish it. And they're not making any money from this, so they likely have day jobs or school to worry about as well, meaning they won't have as much time to invest into it.

    "This is a fan made game meant to be played on your PC via an emulator."

    It's not emulated. It's made with a game-making application. There's no ROMs of any kind.

    Yeah, I am expecting a cease and desist. Although, they could easily get around it by simply changing a few things and making it a "Pokemon inspired" game

    has this been taken down? Website hosting the download is unavailable. Edit: never mind, its back up, though parts of the website aren't loading.
