A newly released mod for Ark: Survival Evolved adds Pokemon to the popular dinosaur game. The full conversion mod is appropriately enough titled “Pokemon Evolved.”
The team behind the mod took Pokemon designs directly from the games they come from, so there is a chance that The Pokemon Company might soon take action against this project. The Pokemon, which include famous ones like Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, and Mewtwo, spawn in the wild in place of the dinosaurs. It looks pretty cool.
“This mod was created to bring a whole new world to the players of Ark,” reads a line from its description. “Like many other ark players, I had become bored with just modding dinos and the other ark craftables. The team went ahead and started to create a conversion to ark that would remove everything that you are used to and replace it with the style from Pokemon.”
According to PC Gamer, a copyright claim was made against the mod, though it reportedly came from a different modder and not The Pokemon Company. The mod remains available to download; we will update this post if anything changes on that front.
