Stop worrying: someone is building a working version of 'Pokemon' inside 'Minecraft'

You can do a lot of amazing things in the world of “Minecraft,” the massively popular game that Microsoft bought for over $US2 billion from its original creators. 

You can build an acid-fuelled minecart trip, for instance:

Or you could re-create Tolkien’s Middle-earth, from “Lord of the Rings”:

You could even re-create “Minecraft” within “Minecraft” — MINECRAFTCEPTION!

One user, known on YouTube as “MrSquishy” and known in real life as “Matt,” is increasingly interested in the latter: creating other games within the world of “Minecraft.” His first work to this end was an incredible re-creation of gaming classic “Pac-Man.”

Not bad! It’s only the first level of “Pac-Man,” and it’s not perfect, but it’s damn close. 

For Matt’s next effort, he’s re-creating another gaming classic: “Pokémon Red.” If you haven’t heard of “Pokémon Red” and you’re a fan of the series, we’re impressed! It’s the very first Pokémon game ever released, and it set the standard for years (and years, and years) of Pokémon games after it. It was released for the original black and white Game Boy.

Given that, the first thing Matt needed to do was re-create a massive Game Boy in “Minecraft.” Like so:

That’s a pretty big Game Boy!

The next step, after building a massive Game Boy, is to re-build “Pokémon Red” from within the world of “Minecraft.” Keep in mind that there’s no way to directly input programming language to “Minecraft,” so this is all being done using the systems within “Minecraft.” 

That’s all fine and good. We’re impressed. What’s even more impressive is that Matt’s already got a version of “Pokémon Red” running within “Minecraft.” Check it out:

Here are a couple more shots of the game in action:

He stresses that this is “still very early in development,” and that he “felt this would be a fun challenge” after re-creating “Pac-Man” in “Minecraft.” Sure! OK! 

It’s not clear when the full release is expected. Colour us red with anticipation!
