Pokemon Dawn of Darkness (PDoD) is a free Pokemon MMO that aims to recreate the Pokemon experience. Pokemon Dawn of Darkness is simply packed with features and receives constant updates to squash bugs and add new content to this ever growing game inspired by Pokemon.


The project is being headed by ‘sickbailey’ with a reasonably large project team behind him to push out updates and fixes at a good pace. There are also positions available from time to time allowing players with some development experience to help improve the game.

Pokemon Dawn of Darkness is not simply a MMO version of a Pokemon game although its easy to think it is at first glance. Dawn of Darkness offers its own unique game world, maps, quests, gyms and NPCs which have been exclusively made for the game.

The game engine that supports the game has also been built from scratch so flexibility and future upgrades are easy to handle thanks to the custom coding.

Pokemon Dawn of Darkness aims to include all Pokemon generations in its game engine so you can definitely ‘catch them all’ in the game. Other features on offer from this free Pokemon MMO include hundreds of beautifully designed maps, customisable player avatars, gym battles, mouse and keyboard movement support, a variety of items to buy, item drops and a secure Pokemon trading system.


Being a MMO community social options are of course another important aspect of Pokemon Dawn of Darkness. Players can interact with others that they meet, add them as a friend, trade Pokemon, create a party or battle against eachother.

Whether you want to run through the game with friends or make some new friends while you play you’ll love the multiplayer options available in Pokemon Dawn of Darkness.


  • Pokemon meets MMO.
  • Constant game updates.
  • Unique maps, not copies of previous Pokemon games.
  • Explore a massive game world.
  • Your Pokemon follows you around!

    This game is awful For 4 years they still yell at you that it is an “alpha” test and all of the recurring bugs that never get fixed aren’t their problem. I lost hundreds of pokemon with over 1000 hours played on my account and no admin or mod will reply to me now still 1 year later even acknowledging that anything happened. Every pokemon on my account disappeared, including my party. Which the game makes it impossible to bank or release the last pokemon you have in your party the moment you get your starter. The game overall is awful, you can barely walk or bike without getting reset and thrown 30 paces into the past. It could be great if their creator cared at all. They ripped off a lot of their art and maps from similar games, they do not fix bugs or are helpful in any sort of way whatsoever. It is decent until a game breaking bug ruins it for you. One of my accounts is stuck in a bush, i cannot move in any direction and am somewhere that you should not be able to walk. Yet again, a year later and still nobody will even reply to my repeatedly bumped bug report though it has been viewed hundreds of times. Great. You suck pdod just give up already. Almost 10 years later and your game sucks as much as the day it was born if not more.
