Pokémon? In Skyrim? Yes, you read that correctly.

You now can Battle Pokemon, Fight Team Rocket, and tame legendary beasts!

...Travel to your house outside whiterun, say hi to Mom, grab your gear and favorite Pokémon Pikachu, and set off to fight the world!

...Catching a Pokémon is simple. Here are the Steps:

1.Find a Pokémon.
