Pokémon Type Wild English Translation

I’d like to announce the first release of my English patch of Pokémon Type: Wild, available for download today!

Pokémon Type Wild is a free 2D fighting game that uses a popular Japanese fighting game engine (not the Mugen engine). While the game is a ton of fun to play, some have difficulties in navigating the Japanese menus. I’ve taken the time to translate the main dialogue of the game so that users may find this game even more enjoyable.

For my first release I’ve only translated the main game menus, attack commands, Pokémon names, and the settings windows. If people express interest in this game then I will continue to translate the extra content and dialogue.

As mentioned, I’ve taken the liberty of porting the game to OSX so that Mac users can enjoy Type Wild as well.

The files below are zipped with 7zip to save file space. To unzip .7z files you can download 7zip for Windows or Keka for Mac.

Update: Check out this new Pokémon design that my girlfriend and I worked on! You can buy a print, t-shirt, or whatever you like of it. Check it out here!

Other Information

As I was digging through the games image files I happened across this particular image:

This Pokémon name is “Lizardon”, which is the Japanese name for Charizard. Perhaps that means we’ll be able to play as him soon? There’s quite a high demand for him so I’m sure he’ll be included at some point.

Like my work? Drop a comment below or visit the forums and tell me what you think! You can also consider buying me a coffee, which is very much appreciated.

*Note: I’ve included MTSP in this release so you can setup Netplay to play with others online. If you’re not sure how to setup Netplay, you can view a translated version the original post here to help you get started.

    Oh man, it may not be much translated but the necessary, but it’s still GREAT to have this!

    I really love that somebody has the ability to do something like this and DOES it.

    I would LOVE it if you were to work for a full translation…particularly of the character dialogues and ending cutscene.

    Thanks for the translation…please keep up the amazing work! =D

  2. Poketmon

    Omg! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while! So glad that somebody can translate this! It may not be much but thanks so much!

    Keep up the good work!

    The file is a .7z (7-zip) archive, so you’ll need to use an extraction program that support .7z files. I would suggest using 7-zip.

  4. Derp

    I downloaded the whole thing and when I open the game it only opens for a split second then closes by itself. What should I do?

  5. PRIZZA Post author

    What version of Windows are you running? You could try to run in compatibility mode via right-click and see if that helps it work.

  6. Batman

    COMEON MAKE ONE FOR MAC! IM tired of not being able to read how to use different attacks

  7. ALskidaddles

    Is there another way to download this for the Mac w/o having to download The Unarchiver? I don’t have an Apple Account and I’d like to avoid having to get one.

    JWittz recommended this game on his youtube channel and
    I really really want to play this game whether it’s fully translated or not D:

  8. Xemnasi

    I also tried to run it and it only opens up for a split second and closes as well.

  9. some kid

    I use Windows Vista and I also can’t play the game because it closes instantly whenever I open it. Is it possible that the antivirus software on this computer is somehow interfering?

  10. cyclone

    Please help. Whenever I try to open the exe file (7zip or WinRAR) it automaticly closes! Help please (windows 7)

  11. PRIZZA Post author

    Have you tried running the game in compatibility mode? If that doesn’t help, try looking around Google for other cases where people can’t start Pokemon Type Wild. You may be missing a needed driver.

  12. PRIZZA Post author

    You do not need to open the .exe file with WinRar or 7zip; all you need to do is double-click the file and windows will natively open the program.

  13. PRIZZA Post author

    I’ll try to get a Mac version of Type Wild working within the next week. I’ll keep you guys updated.

  14. Followeroftheprince

    It’s great that you translated this, although to the people complaining have you tried downloading the japanese version it might help you understand if this guy can fix it or not? Anyrate I would like it if you translated the characters speach because it bothers me when I defeat 5 things and I con’t know what my character says each time. No need to rush though this is type wild, not story time.

  15. Logan

    Okay, so I’m kinda using an older PC, and I’m running XP. PT: W downloaded without a problem, but when I try to actually OPEN it, it opens a new Tab, closes that Tab, then downloads it again. Am I doing something wrong? If so, what, and how can I fix it?

  16. PRIZZA Post author

    When your browser opens a new tab and closes it just means you’re trying to download the file again. You have to find the downloaded .7z file on your computer and extract it. You can use one of the mentioned extraction tools to open the archive and then just double-click to run the exe file.

  17. JPDiddy

    THIS IS TAKING FOREVEERR I just want to play so badly im up to 150 megabites how long till it downloads?

  18. Arnold Schwarznigga

    Will there be a Mac version for this because it’s been really hard for me to play this game

  19. Brofist

    Are you still working on the Mac port? And by the way thanks for taking time to do that, most people don’t make a port.

  20. Sulp

    When i go to click the actual game if crashes instantly. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong but some help would be appreciated.

  21. TheBigBaguette

    Can you put up a mirror for the mac version? The current one doesn’t seem to work.

  22. Arnold Schwarznigga

    It says I need a password for the Mac version? Anyone know what this means?

  23. Arnold Schwarznigga

    Thanks so much! The password works and the game works fine. Thanks so much for porting this to Mac

  24. PRIZZA Post author

    I’m really glad you enjoy it. If you’d like to share this with your friends I’d be very grateful. Have fun!

  25. Arnold Schwarznigga

    Hey PRIZZA,

    Do you know why my Pokemon Type:Wild doesn’t seem to open some times? (Macbook Pro w/ Retina Display) I have to click quite a lot of times to get it to open. On most occasions I even need to restart my laptop. Any ideas why?

  26. PRIZZA Post author

    That’s a bit hard to diagnose. Sometimes the app can take a while to start the first time, so I would suggest trying to open it once and then waiting for several minutes to see if anything happens.

    Which version of OSX are you running? You can find out by clicking the apple symbol at the top left and then selecting “About This Mac”.

  27. Coach Afro

    In response to it closing immediately after starting, remove “Åö” from the file names “ÅöTYPE WILD.exe” and “ÅöTYPE WILD.kgt”

  28. DiGiorno Pastasas

    I’m trying to get the 1st mirror version for Windows,but it says I need a password.

    Plus,there’s no post for it.

    Help?

  29. PRIZZA Post author

    Thanks for the suggestion; that’s something I should have caught before uploading. If this solves anyone’s problem I’ll take time to reupload the Mac version with edited filenames.

  30. PRIZZA Post author

    If it’s the Windows version, double click the .exe file. If it’s Mac, double click the .app file.

  31. PRIZZA Post author

    7zip is a vastly superior file compression format and zip is mostly a crutch these days. Kick it like a nasty habit!

  32. Crazy

    ummmmm……I downloaded both the files but when I run one of them I get a ps2 emulator o_0

  33. Crazy

    I clicked mirror 1 and used the password but When I download it, it appears as a disk on a piece of paper.

  34. Aizen

    Do you know if this game is still being worked on? It’s been quite a few years since Beta 5.3 and I’m starting to think this game is dead… Any info would help. Thanks

  35. Extremely bored

    How large is the file? I’ve seen someone say over 150 MB already, and I’d just like to say that I’ve had 200MB .zip files download much faster than the 125MB I’ve got so far… plus, ‘saving file space’ is kinda annoying when I have to download another- ANOTHER- program which I’ve never heard of just to extract the .zip of a game I wanted to download because I was bored.

    155MB and counting.

  36. Fern

    What are the minimum mac requirements to run this game? I downloaded the file and when I try to open it, it closes a few seconds later :/

  37. PRIZZA Post author

    Go to the Type Wild.app, right-click and then choose “Show Package Contents”. Double-click “Wineskin.app” and then click the “Advanced” button. Click the “Tools” tab, and then under the Utilities column click “View Last Run Log Files”. Copy and paste the contents of the “LastRunWine.log” to a site like pastie.org and then send me the link.

  38. pokemon fan

    Whenever i try to download mirror 1 for mac it never stops downloading and im using firefox. safari is a complete failure what do i do use chrome?

  39. AbsolPowers

    Tried downloading it. After opening it up with Keka, it’ll ask for a password. After typing in the password. It just gives me this:
    TYPE WILD_Mac-1.7z.html
    which is a link that just gives me an error message reading:
    Warning: gzopen() [function.gzopen]: Filename cannot be empty in /home/filedrop/public_html/processing/filedownload.php on line 166

    Warning: gzclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/filedrop/public_html/processing/filedownload.php on line 176

  40. Fern

    I’ve tried to redownload it and when I try to extract, an error pops-up saying unable to extract. I’ve used 7-zip, Keka, and The Unarchiver and I’ve had no luck :/
    I’m on a Mac btw

  41. Lucas

    Same here. When I download the Mac mirror it will finish downloading by 300KB. I’m using MacBook Pro 10.8.4

  42. Shadowknight1

    No matter what, the program closes immediately when I try to open it. I even tried to find the Japanese version…what am I doing wrong? =(

  43. Phoenix747

    Can someone tell me how to download this patch? I can’t find the correct download button for the game.

  44. Lucas

    I’m using a Mac which is on OS X Maverick and the game doesn’t run. The window just pops out with a blank background then automatically closes. What’s the solution for this?

  45. Person

    I think I might be one of the people who is also experiencing the problem with Mac. I’ve tried using Keka and unzipping the Mac file, and it says there’s a fatal error with it. Explanation, please?

  46. GT

    The game is already awesome the way its currently translated.But it would be much more cooler to have the game fully translated! I really would like to know what the pokemon are saying.Please work on that when you can :)

  47. PRIZZA Post author

    Does Keka say that there is a fatal error with the file when you try to extract it? Usually those errors are thrown when there’s a bad download. Make sure the Pokémon 7z file is around 194.5 megabytes.

  48. Person

    @Prizza – The download was quite large, I can download it again and check. I’m on a Mac, and my specs are 10.9 with more than enough memory to support it. Not sure if it’s on my end or yours, but I’ll try again and see what happens. If I remember correctly, it was around that number of 100+ megabytes.

    UPDATE: Looking at the file right now, it says 185.5 megabytes. I’m not sure if that’s close enough within your range, but if not, possibly try putting it back up again? When I tried unzipping it the first time around, it said “Error code 2 using “p7zip” – Fatal error.” You’re probably more educated than I am in computer terms, so I assume this means something bad.

    UPDATE #2: Just redownloaded it, got the same error again, not sure what the issue is exactly, considering I’m doing what you’ve told me to do from the original post and all. Maybe make a tutorial video on how to do it for those technologically impaired or something? I’ve been wanting to play this game very badly, and I would very much appreciate it if you could help out those in need of working it.

  49. Person

    I am almost positive I have enough memory, and I doubt folder permissions are an issue in any way. I can try changing the folder or making sure I’m on an admin account, but I doubt that is the issue. Anyways, here’s to hoping it works!

  50. Person

    To be honest, I really do want to play this game and enjoy what other users are experiencing, but the error leads me to nothing when I do a search on Google about it. Not only that, but the file seems to not be corrupt in any way at all, and I doubt that Keka is corrupt either. Would there be any other solution you can think of? Maybe putting the direct game up on for download rather than a 7zip, or maybe convert the 7zip into a .zip file instead? I’m not that good with technology, but these are just some ideas I’m thinking of off of the top of my head.

  51. Person

    So I downloaded The Unarchiver, and I tried using it, and it gave me the following error:
    “There was a problem while reading the contents of the fine ‘Pokemon Type Wild.7z': The archive file is incomplete.”
    I assume this error is because of the file size, and I’ve already tried redownloading the file, which gave me the size of 185.5 megabytes, rather than your previously claimed file to be 194.5 megabytes. I can try redownloading it one more time, but maybe you could re-upload it and check the file size?

  52. a person who like to play fan made pokemon games

    whenever i try to open the file ÅöTYPE WILD it just opens and closes. can you tell me why that’s happening? cause i want to play this game and i dont want to learn japanese

  53. TheSynist3r

    Hey guys i figured out how to play it…
    1.Redownload the game.
    2.Use any Archiver (Im using winrar)
    3.Extract to desktop(Veryimportant)’
    4.Open up the folder then on the .exe run that as administrator and it should work :D

    This worked for me guys and hopefully for you too.

(Just Like Other Mac Users)

  61. PRIZZA Post author

    I’m developing a PC/Mac game for release on June 15th, so after it’s out I may have a little more time to set-up a netplay port. Check back soon.

  62. PRIZZA Post author

    This game has absolutely no viruses. I’m glad you like Pokémon, by the way! I grew up with Pokémon Blue.

  63. Nunya Pie

    Uhh, I try to play the game on my Windows 8.1 PC, and it doesn’t work, it just opens the windows and closes quickly…

  64. Diz

    I am using a mac. The game works fine until after I chose my Pokemon. My opponent shows up and then I get a white screen :/

  65. Digi

    I notice that nothing has really come of this potential translation project and this is something I have wanted for a long time but have never had the opportunity to learn enough written Japanese to translate. So I was wondering something. If you don’t have the time/interest to actually make a translated program for this game, do you think you could simply perhaps make a text translation in Notepad or a page on here or something? I have been extremely curious as to what the characters are saying, both in their victory/intro dialogues and in the cutscenes of the game. I think it would be very awesome if you could do this…I feel like I’m missing a lot of the flavor of the game without it.

    In any case, I have tried making translations through kanji and phrase translation programs, but nothing ever works well enough. I love what you’ve already done and I really hope you consider making some kind of translation here, even if it’s not completely translating the program itself.

    Thanks a lot, one way or the other~

  66. UberAbsol

    the mac version does not work.
    up until the pokemon select screen is fine, but then it crashes.

  67. DonGero

    The file on Mega will not fully load. The progression bar freezes at 99%. Please diagnose my issue.

  68. Zach R.

    When I load the game, it just crashes. Then it started working, but then it said D_title.demo error? What does this mean? And it starts to crash again right when I open it.

  69. XilentAssassin

    HI!! So, i saw so many trailers about this game on the Youtubz, and I was like “DUDE! MUST GET!!” but when I tried to get the game(mac), i only go to the screen and when I clicked Download nothing downloaded. Is it my Mac or… CAUSE I NEED THIS GAME! XD

  70. HobbitsHaveFeelings
