Doubtful. WoW has pokemon and anything anOther MMO does well, blizzard would jack.

I honestly don't know why they never made a Pokemon MMO, it feels like something that's ripe for MMO-ing. With them spawning throughout the wilds and you can battle/catch the ones you want for future battles, etc.

Also easily MMO grindable:
"Diglet is stealing my crops! battle and defeat 10 diglets!"
0/10 Diglets defeated.

:D

I would wait for the old school pokemon gamers vs the new school pokemon gamers to clash.

The old school would win. I would hop on that instantly, Nintendo would have to use Xplatform play to implement this wisely.

I have been playing WoW since 2006

If a Pokemon MMO came around, I would probably leave WoW

Jesus would I love that

It doesn't matter, they've already said 'That's not the way we want to move our company.'

D though
Pokémon will appeal to a different set of players (though some WoW players may like it) and it would have to have turn based combat.
It's like comparing a shooter game to an action adventure game with guns.

You guys do realize the mighty warriors of Azeroth play capture the flag like a bunch of eight year olds... Right?

If there was to be a Pokemon mmo made it would probably be made by Gamefreak, who have proved time and time again that they are incapable of coming up with any fresh ideas or changing a game, so it would be identical to the current pokemon games and probably suck.

But I would totally play it especially if it had some sort of progression, like if the released game was Kanto with only the original 151, the next (first) expansion being Johto, etc.

I never understood why Mewtwo was #150 while Mew was #151.

Mew was added long after the first 150 were implemented in place of the debug code.
