Pokémon.com online games (lost online games, pre-2010 to 2011)


In more recent years, Pokémon.com has featured online games to promote the Pokémon franchise. Most are Flash-based, though more recent games have been Java-based. While most still exist on the site and many that have been removed have been mirrored elsewhere, a few games that were removed don't seem to exist anywhere. The ones that were originally on Pokémon.com were not found on Internet Archive's Wayback Machine as there seems to have been a period where most of Pokémon.com wasn't archived and in some cases, included the entirety of the games section.

Tricks of a Trainer

A quiz game where players answered questions about the Hoenn region. Players had to keep guessing until they got the question right to move on. There were five questions.

The game was removed in the January 11, 2010 revamp of the site.[1]

Grassamatass

A crossword game featuring the names of Grass-type Pokémon and moves. There were nine crosswords.

The game was removed in the January 11, 2010 revamp of the site.[2]

Deep Sea Diving

Players had to find the names of Water-type Pokémon.

The game was removed in the January 11, 2010 revamp of the site.[3]

Tic-Tac-Toe

This game was hidden, meaning that the address had to be manually entered to access it. Two players played tic-tac-toe using Blaziken and Swampert markers, or one player plays against the computer at three skill levels.

The game was removed in the January 11, 2010 revamp of the site.[4]

Unnamed Shuckle game

This game was hidden, meaning that the address had to be manually entered to access it. Multiple Poké Balls are shown to the player, one containing a Shiny Shuckle while the rest contained normal Shuckle. The balls were then shuffled and the player had to guess which one contained the Shiny Shuckle. There were 10 levels, the first having three Poké Balls while each level added one more, with the final level having ten.

The game was removed in the January 11, 2010 revamp of the site.[5]

Wobbuffet's Puzzle Pack!

Released on August 7, 2010, this game was hosted by Wobbuffet and had several jigsaw puzzles.

It was later removed and replaced by a similar game called Zorua and Zoroark's Puzzle Pack![6]

Play to Befriend a Pokémon!

This game was part of a promotion where players could receive an evolution of Eevee with its hidden ability through Pokémon Global Link. Because of this, a Pokémon Trainer Club account was required to play the game.

It was removed after the promotion ended.[7]

There seems to be a time period where very little of pokemon.com was archived. This includes the entirety of the game section in some cases.
