Has anyone heard of these games? I have never played them, but I remember reading about it in Nintendo Power. Apparently it's just another Pokemon knock-off, but the Game Boy Color game had a special receiver on the cartridge that let you point a TV remote at it to upgrade your robots.

Sorry for the crappy picture, it was the biggest one I could find.


Here's a picture of the cartridge:

Here's a picture that shows what the receiver does:

If none of those links work, here's the website that has the pictures:

Here's a description from Atlus's website:

Robopon are robotic creatures that inhabit the planet alongside humans. They can be captured and trained to battle other Robopon. You have just inherited the Robopon Dispatching Company from your grandfather, but the business is failing. To start earning a profit, you must become the greatest Robopon master in the world. To do this, you must travel the globe, battling other Robopon masters and collecting the 150 species of Robopon. As Robopon battle, they gain experience and evolve into more powerful types. The cartridge also has an infrared sensor that will allow new attributes to be unlocked by shooting remote control beams into it. An internal clock is built in and will notify you of time- sensitive events. Try to catch them all in Robopon: Sun Version.

    I've seen a review of it in EGM! I've seen it for cheap once at a Wal*Mart, but decided not to get it.

      i've heard of it, never seen screens for it. the ad i found was in an old game informer mag. reminds me of those games where you scan a label on bar codes to get a monster... sounded like a neat idea

              Wow.... I actually still have this game to this date. To be honest it actually wasnt that bad of a game. I found a way to cheat the entire game by just doing there *training games* and i was able to level up my creatures to insane levels way way beyond the game. They have 2 versions by the way. Sun or Moon were the 2 available versions. I have sun.

                Those things seem like have been modeled a little bit like Megaman. Unless it's just an anime thing.

                    Actually, I heard that Sun Version was the only one to make it in America. (In the Game Boy Color versions anyways.)
