Would is be possible or legal to sell the games you create with Pokemon Essentials? What if you changed all the pokemon to your "fakemon" and changed maps and created your own world. Would that be legal or possible?

Thanks

If you technically change all the fundemental basics of a pokemon game, to your own creation, like the name, the battle formulas, sprites and tiles, and made sure to not include anything created by Game Freak in your game, then sure. You could sell the game.

Nintendo might still try to sue you for stealing Pokemons concept though, but it is unlikely, so long as everything in the game is made by you.

On top of this, indie game development is a little less strict. If it was licensed, the likelihood of being sued for that is higher.

But yeah, I don't see Monster Hunter, Digimon, Beyblade, Yugioh, and Pokemon going at each others throats constantly. It just needs to be different enough.
