The new smartwatch Pebblemon game version which is a Pokemon clone lets you encounter all 251 Pokemon from the Game Boy Color (GBC) title, the Game Developer of Pebbleman, Harrison Allen stated today. Once you level up, you unlock more different sprites. “Discover hidden items to aid you on your journey,” Allen.
While, Pebblemon — designed and developed to play on the Pebble smartwatch — may not be exactly the same, its developer describes it as a “mini Pokemon adventure on your wrist.”
Pebblemon is basically a full port of the GBC version of pokemon btw – Says Developer Allen
Now, if you are wondering if people still have Pebble smartwatches — Fitbit bought the brand in 2017 — and several users still have them and are in use as well.
For Pebblemon, game developer Harrison Allen says that he created a replica of the graphics library used in Pokemon Yellow, the first title in the popular game series. And just like Pokemon, you can explore “various areas within the Johto region” while playing Pebbelmon with the help of buttons on the Pebble smartwatch.
5 years on and devs like linksky are STILL building new game engines and beautiful games like Pebblemon – Eric Migicovsky said on Twitter
Eric Migicovsky, the founder of Pebble, posted a video on Twitter that shows Pebblemon running on a Pebble smartwatch with tremendous ease and no technical glitches. “5 years on and developers like linksky are still building new game engines and beautiful games like Pebblemon for Pebble. Incredible” reads the caption to the video. The 31-second clip shows a man completing a stage with the help of two buttons on the right side of the smartwatch.
In a subsequent tweet, Migicovsky said, “This is basically a full port of the GBC version of pokemon btw.”
The video brought back the memories of the Pebble smartwatch for many.
“One of the best open watch platforms ever. I miss it, and having direct access to all of the sensors via BLE,” wrote a former Pebble user @bleeshem.
