Pokemon has always been a guilty pleasure and I actually would love an MMO about it. The world is big and the content screams for a MMO.

As for raiding, it would be pretty sick to get 50 of your friends together to take down the Legendary Birds (one for each different raid of course) and the first expansion could be the Mewtwo xpak.

It'll probably never be made but we can dream about it lol.

Probably the only franchise that could make a "casual" MMO with decent and frequent PvP.

Too bad Nintendo just learned about the internet a few years ago.

That's almost essentially the problem. Nintendo for the past few years have expressed pointedly that they aren't interested in making an MMO.

Part of the problem might come from how console gamers play their games. If NPDs stats are accurate then the majority of console gamers don't play online on the 360 and PS3 so it is a waste for Nintendo to invest in an online game.

Another part of the problem is that Nintendo has an image and customer culture to uphold that makes Nintendo more wholesome for their consumers than Warner Brothers or Disney.

Seeing how people degenerate while playing online on the 360 and PC games makes nintendo very worried about allowing that type of asshattery to smear their image. When Nintendo really pushes for online play they are going to make sure the anonimity factor that has plagued online games doesn't exist in their domain or is greatly reduced.
