What is Revomon VR?
Revomon (Revolution Monsters VR) is the virtual reality version of the popular role-playing game Pokemon. It combines the virtual reality experience with the NFT technology so players can create real value out of entertainment in a virtual world.
The Revomon Metaverse is inspired by the Zelda and Pokemon universes. Merging these two creatures gives birth to what is known as Revomon or Revolution Monsters. The game is supported on the Meta Quest, Rift, Rift S, and HTC Vive.
Players can socialize with each other while on a hunt for wild Revomon. The game can be seen as a merger of Axie Infinity and Pokemon Go, but in a virtual environment.
Revomon is created by the Pokemon fans for the fans. The game comes from the same creators as the Pokemon VR. More on the history of Revomon in the next section of the article.
Watch the gameplay here.
The game didn’t really start as Revomon. It was created as Pokemon VR, a fan-made tribute to Nintendo’s classic Pocket Monsters, aka Pokemon.
Sensing the wrath the creators of the game might face from Nintnedo’s legal team, they pulled out of Sidequest and relaunched as Revomon due to licensing issues.
Is there a Pokemon VR game?
No, there’s no official Pokemon VR game available at the time of writing this article. Revomon creators initially launched the same game as Pokemon VR which was later pulled out because Nintendo owns the license for Pokemon.
What you see now is the relaunched version of Pokemon VR in the name of Revomon. It is a virtual reality based Pokemon game made by fans for the fans built and led by the community.
Alongside the revamp from Pokemon to Revomon, the development team has added a ton of great features. This has morphed the game into a unique VR RPG experience.
Revomon VR Features
Here are the some of the key features of the Revomon VR game:
Take ownership of what you collect
You own whatever you collect in the game. Each Revomon is eligible to be swapped into an ERC-721 NFT, an open standard that defines how to build non-fungible tokens on the Ethereum blockchain.
Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) governance protocol
The game is predominantly built and led by the Revomon community. The token holders play a vital role in decision making about the platform, the game, and its content.
As said above, you own what you collect. Here’s how the global user process in Revomon works:
- User buys and plays Revomon from the VR online stores on their VR headset
- User progresses in the game and collects Revomon as rewards
- Each collected Revomon can be swapped into unique NFTs stored on Binance Smart Chain network (a blockchain network built to help developers create Decentralized applications, or Dapps, and help users manage their digital assets cross-chain). The project will soon allow the project to expand to Ethereum Chain’s OpenSea as well.
- Users can hold their NFTs in their in-game wallet and sell them on spread out marketplaces like Refinable. Discover the first generation of NFTs in this collection. Also, users can swap their $REVO tokens into ETH. REVO is a cross-chain token that operates on Binance and Ethereum blockchain. Learn how to bridge your tokens on PolyNetwork bridge here.
Staking or farming in the crypto world refers to the process of locking up crypto holdings to earn rewards or interest. In Revomon, you can stake or farm $REVO tokens and secure your in-game network activities. You get rewarded for depositing and holding coins with guaranteed time-based returns.
