Pokemon Style Battles Are Coming To World Of Warcraft

Pokemon, the game we all have loved since our childhood is coming to World of Warcraft. At least, that is what it seems like, with Blizzard‘s official announcement regarding the game’s fourth expansion: Mists of Pandaria.

I’m not even kidding.

It would appear the same people who brought heroes into real-time strategy have taken their pet system and turned it into an RPG. Inside it, players will be able to use their pets to weaken and capture wild creatures. They’ll also be able to duel other players in game, which is actually kind of awesome.

Just so we’re clear, this is an MMO being placed inside of an MMO.

I seriously can’t get my head around it. Don’t fear though; Blizzard never makes mistakes. Well, they did cancel StarCraft Ghost, but nobody (or billion dollar company) is perfect.

Stay tuned for more information from BlizzCon 2011.
