Pokémon Red is currently being built inside Minecraft


Redditor MrSquishyYT is currently recreating Pokémon Red inside Minecraft.

It’s slow going, as he explained to htxt.africa.

“The game doesn’t know that anyone beyond the player currently exists. Adding NPCs will require a whole slew of new systems, such as stores, trainer battles, scripted events, and the ability to interact with objects in the world,” he said.

“[Then there’s the] custom functionality for interior regions, such as the arrow puzzles in Team Rocket’s hideout, the door puzzles on Cinnabar island, and the slot machines at the Game Corner. Items don’t currently do anything, so I’m currently working on redesigning the item menu and adding item functionality both in and of battles.”

MrSquishyYT says he’ll make the map available for download when the work is complete.
