Someone has made a mod that turns all the animals and creatures in Stardew Valley into Pokemon, making farm life a bit more exciting.
The mod is called Pokemania The Return, and it’s from modder The Krominator. And put simply, it takes all the animals and creatures in Stardew Valley, and turns them into Pokrmon. One of the best parts is that the different Pokemon can even come with their own Pokedex entries.
Have a dog in the game? Now you can have a Growlithe, or a Poochyena! Or maybe you’re more of a cat person. In that case, the mod lets you have a Skitty, or a classic like Meowth.
All of the farm animals are replaced too. Pretty appropriately, there are Pokemon like Mareep, Combusken, and Grumpig, all of which are pretty obvious in what they’re replacing. There’s Pokemon like Psyduck and Gogoat too, so the range in generations is pretty broad.
what else is in the mod?
Not only that, but creatures down in the caves have been replaced by Pokémon too. It isn’t specified which Pokemon replaces what creature. But if you head down into the caves, you can expect to see pocket monsters like Muk, Zubat, Diglet, Electrode, and more.
The replacements don’t just stop at the farm animals and the cave critters though. There are Pokemon all over the valley, like Pancham (who notably likes honey), Magikarp (“of course!“), and even MissingNo!
If you don’t know what MissingNo is, it was a glitch Pokemon found in the original game that was not meant to be there. And it became something of a creepypasta, so that’s a fun one to include.
Modder The Krominator also noted that there are more planned features that will come to the mod. More critters are planned, like more flying Pokemon. Castform also appears in the game, and there are plans to have its appearance change with the weather. And there are plans to include music from Pokémon too, as well as changing animal sounds with Pokémon cries.
It seems like it will be a great mod to keep us occupied while we wait for the next game from the creator Stardew Valley.
