PokéPark: Asari Taikai DS (lost 2005 DS Download Play game)


Title screen of PokéPark: Asari Taiki DS.

On March 18, 2005, a temporary theme park opened Nakamura Ward, Nagoya, Japan devoted entirely to Pokémon. It was called the PokéPark. Placed in this park were DS Download Play stations where players could download a game to their Nintendo DS via DS Download Play. The game was titled PokéPark: Asari Taikai DS (ポケパーク 漁り大会DS, translated as "PokéPark: Fishing Rally DS"). In this game, the player visits several locations on a river to fish for and carch Water-type Pokémon. The DS Download Play stations had leaderboards where high scores would be sent to and displayed. Up to five Pokémon could be kept at a time.

However, due to the nature of DS Download Play, the game was temporary, and deleted from the Nintendo DS's system memory when the system was shut down or after 12 hours, whichever came first. The only data retained anywhere were on the servers, which recorded high scores.[1] No ROM dumps of either the actual game or the DS Download Play station that allows players to download it are known to exist, but a YouTube user named Tim Schuerewegen has uploaded a gameplay video of the game, which suggests that he may have a ROM dump.

I can confirm that I have a captured DS Download Play version of the game. Back in 2005 someone visited PokéPark in Japan and used my software to capture the wireless data transferred between the DS Download Play station and his/her Nintendo DS system which I then used to reassemble the complete game. He/she asked me not to release the game.

Why would that not want to release the ROM?

Though I respect your not wanting to let down whoever was able to capture the demo, you may possibly have the only copy. My searches online have turned up nothing aside from a guy on YouTube who may have it but a LOT of Pokemon fans that would love it released. Ultimately the decision is yours but, I would argue that you would make a lot of people very happy by letting it out into the wild. I hope you will reconsider. If you are still against posting it, I would love to have it for myself (my daughter and I collect pokemon stuff and this is very obviously missing) and will not give it out without your permission. Either way, thanks for the consideration.

Ohh, c'mon, explain to him how important is to recolect all the lost games, and more this one, because it's from a famous series.

I'd love to see this dumped. I don't know why anyone would keep this to themselves, what happens if you die/forget about it/lose the harddrive?
