Pokémon are always popular. Although the brand is quite old and those who watched the first Pokémon episodes are probably having some responsibilities right now, the franchise keeps growing. And that’s something you can’t miss because, in the last ten days, everyone is talking about new Pokemon Go game.
Pokémon Go is a free-to-play game that was released a few days ago. Everyone can get the game for iOS and Android devices and it seems that everyone really is doing so. If you install the game, you get to discover Pokémon near your location and the fun part is that you actually have to walk (or run) to a location to catch specific Pokémon. No more sitting in front of the screen and living in the virtual world because this game forces you to move around.
In our experience, people are thrilled with Pokémon Go and there are only quite a few individuals that won’t admit that the game is installed on their smartphone. We won’t be talking about the game here, but we have actually found a Pokemon theme for WordPress which you can get for free! Yes, if you’re using WordPress to build your website, you can download and install this theme in the next few minutes and have your Pokémon adventures written in a form of a blog.
This theme was created by Pokebar and is available for everyone to download for free. All the developer is asking for is that you keep their credentials in the footer. If you install this Pokémon theme, you’ll get a fixed-width theme with only one sidebar on the right. The theme will show a huge pokeball on the header banner which is all red and white – something you have to appreciate as a Pokémon fan. Pokeball will also appear as the favicon and the list icon.
Although this might sound great, that’s practically everything that connects this theme to Pokémon world. Theme is actually quite old now, and it is quite simple. There are no any extra features or images you can use. Since it’s fixed-width, that means that the theme isn’t responsive and it won’t look any good on smaller resolutions. That’s unfortunate because, in the world of portable devices, you just have to have a responsive site. And since Pokémon Go is a portable game, this hurts even more.
If you’re just beginning with your blog and you want to write about Pokémon Go and show your new adventures with the new game, this might be a good start for you. But if you’re more serious about your Pokémon website, we suggest that you find another free or premium theme which you can customize in details. By doing so, you will get a better, responsive WordPress theme which will work and look great for everyone. And you will still be able to change the header and create Pokémon-related images.
There’s not really much to write about the theme. Next to Pokemon Friends which really had nothing to do with the franchise, it’s the only one related to Pokémon that we found. It’s simple but it can still serve you as your own Pokémon blog.
