I just want to know why they left them as shitty tokens when they clearly took the time to code in complex animations for practically everything else, including special animations for some of the shitty figurine guys.

I thought the point of these kinds of games was specifically immersion. Guess it was the cute poses that the figures make?

It's a good question, the only answer I can come up with is they reaaaaally wanted to to make a HeroClix clone but had to settle for a digital version of it.

But those tokens already exist!

Recognizability maybe? Selling figures? Allowing digital collection?

I can't imagine profits from figurines would be THAT HIGH but?

Yeah for me this feels very much like a Dungeon Dice Monsters type move for Pokemon. And lest we forget what a failure that turned out to be... Poor, sweet Duke Devlin never knew what hit him.

Wait uh.

This is a remake of an older physical pokemon game, isn't it? I can't remember what the name was, but I'm sure I have some of the figurines knocking around somewhere.

That's the Pokémon Trading Figure Game. Pretty sure I have a few of those things somewhere too.

Well damn, you're right. I either completely forgot that existed, or didn't know it existed at all. Wow. The figures looked cool, too.
