The unofficial fan-made entry features 150 new Pokémon for you to discover, an entirely new class called“Nuclear Pokémon,” and lot of other cool stuff. Pokémon Uranium features a tropical setting, and the areas themselves are beautifully drawn. You can check out the launch trailer here, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised (we think).

Of course, it’s a non-profit project, so you won’t need to shell out any of your hard earned cash for the game. Rather, you’ll need to run it via an emulator, on a PC/laptop. Head here to check it out, and see what all the fuss is about.

This is by far the largest and most ambitious Pokemon fan project and it’s commendable that the team has worked for so long to finish it.

Now back to Go. There is some good news for you trainers out there who still want to gain an unfair advantage. Even though Niantic shut down access to their servers, there are some apps that use artificial intelligence and crowdsourcing to help you find rare Pokemon, Pokestops, and Gyms. Pokemon Go Maps is probably the best one out right now, developed by a former google engineer. Since Pokemon Go Maps is built without using any third party APIs it does not violate any Pokemon Go Terms of Service, and won’t jeopardize your account. Here’s where you can get it:

Pokemon Go Maps for iOS
Pokemon Go Maps for Android

The app currently has locations of over a million Pokemon, and that’s just in the United States alone.
