Pokéngine is a browser-based MMORPG, game creation tool, and archive of user-submitted Dexes, trainers and Mons. It has been in development since 2006. It is currently in closed beta. New players may access the MMORPG by joining the Discord and requesting access in the #access-pass channel.

Pokéngine runs in a web browser using HTML5 and JavaScript. Games built in the engine use jCoad, a custom scripting language. It runs best in Google Chrome. Both mobile and desktop versions are available. A downloadable client for the game is currently in development but is not yet available.

User-Created Content[]

Pokéngine is different from other monster MMORPGs due to its heavy focus on user-created content. With the exception of the Nintendo dex, Retro Kanto and Neo regions, all Dexes and regions available on-site consist of user-created fakemon, maps, and events. Because of this, Pokéngine's new content is entirely user-driven. Anyone can apply for a Dex or a Region, but only projects that show a strong commitment and high level of quality will be approved.
