they aren't "pokemon-esque" mechanics when they're completely different than tossing a ball into an injured monster to catch it


That's why I said "esque" and not "copied". Any game with a "collect-a-monster" mechanic is automatically compared to Pokemon, even if those monsters are actually just manifestations of your psyche that are formed by putting a not-gun to your head and committing not-suicide.


You can't copy yourself, zing!

MegaTen pretty much invented the monster catching mechanic in games back in '87


True 'nuff. Since "copied Pokemon" was specifically not my argument, I didn't take the time to think of whether it would be a valid argument in the first place.
Socran's Razor: "Never attribute to massive stupidity by someone else, what could be explained by a tiny bit of stupidity on your own part."
