File this one under "finally!" A fan-made Pokémon 3D action-RPG, Pokémon: Generations, has surfaced on All Games Beta. It looks to take the standard Pokémon formula and strip out turn-based gameplay in favor of movement and actions directly controlled by the player.
In a gameplay video, you can watch a trainer pit his Charmander against a Bulbasaur. When the player summons his Charmander, control transfers to the Pokémon itself, leading to a cat and mouse fight. After the battle is won, the trainer manually aims and throws out a Poké Ball to catch the fainted Bulbasaur. It's a small taste of what is hopefully a fully-realized 3D Pokemon experience.
Pokémon: Generations will feature a story mode that bridges the gap between the original Red/Blue/Yellow versions and the subsequent Gold/Silver/Crystal installments. You can stay up to date on the game's progress by joining the game's forums. In the meantime, you can download the game here. Forget whatever you had to do this weekend -- it's time to catch 'em all like you've never caught them before.
