The Pokéthulhu Adventure Game
The Monster In Your Pocket is
Cuddly, Evil, and Itching for Action!
is not dead which can eternal lie,
Amid the sagging gables of old New England, evil lurks . . . and squirms, and scuttles, and purrs. Grownups are fleeing in terror, hiding behind the Elder Sign.
You're 10 years old. You're our last hope. Armed with a Shining Dodecahedron and the elder incantations to make it work, you capture the monsters and train them to use their power . . . But not for evil. For sport.
You've thrilled to the popular TV show. Now, you can play the game! Is your Shoplifting score good enough to sneak a page from your opponent's Pokénomicon? Is your trained Jigglypolyp powerful enough to defeat a devolved Fungal Cluster? This is the world of Pokéthulhu, and now it's yours to save - or conquer!
You've reached the official home of The Pokéthulhu Adventure Game, the coolest free RPG Not of This Earth, and the only game that lets you crack into the depths of a Shining Dodecahedron to spill forth cuddly evil to do battle with your foes.
A Little History . . .
The Cumberland Games edition of Pokéthulhu is the third and ultimate (in every sense of the word) form of the game, but this game has been around the block a little before it finally came home to rest. Squishy Brain Games published the (very rare) first edition in the summer of 2000, and Dork Storm Press published the well-known second edition in 2001. The second edition added several features, including Over Cold Mountain and John Kovalic's What's-an-RPG? comic featuring his Dork Tower characters.
The current (third) edition is a free game, including the complete content of all previous editions, edited, revised, and expanded with yet-more new material including lots of fan-designed thulhu, the long-awaited Chaos Cards rules (introduced at the first World Pokethulhu Tournament two years ago and finally made public), and more!
