Shi Kong Xing Shou is Pokemon-esque role playing game by Vast Fame, in 2001. The dump of this game is available.[2]

Story

A boy named Ballot finds that his father found the Moon is glowing blue. And 2 days later, Ballot's father is missing. Also, his dog turned into Galactic Beast. Ballot takes his dog and takes a journey to find his father.

Overview

System

The player journeys every places to solve mysteries and collect Engine Crystal pieces(動力晶片), and change characters to across some traps.

This game's battle system is same of Pokemon; Turn-based battle, Capture system, Beast deposit system. Unlike pokemon, this game doesn't support Multiplay. This also supports 'Pokedex', but you can't search Beasts in any other order and you'll just find Beasts' trivia.

Galactic Beasts(星獸; approximately translated into 'Star Beast')

They're 'Pokemon' of this game and also the main nemesis of the game.

Each Beasts have stats same as Pokemon; Hit Points, Attack(攻擊), Defense(防禦), Special Attack(法力), Special Defense(魔防), Speed(速度). You can only check out their Special Attack stat when they level up.

There are 8 types of the Beasts : Fight(鬥), Light(光), Shadow(闇), Fire(火), Water(水), Wood(草/木), Earth(土), Air(飛/風).

When your beast is fainted during battle, they'll revive with 1 HP after battle ends.

Wild beasts can be caught with capture orbs, unless they're applicated with bosses. Unlike Pokemon, you can't give nickname to them.

Bosses are making troubles around the world every Episode, so you have to defeat them along the storyline. They bring their minions between 1 and 3 of them, and cannot be caught.

Items

Items are in 3 categories : Consumables, Equipments, Key Items. Balls(膠囊) and Technical Machines(秘技) are included in Consumables.

There are 50 TMs in this game, but some of TMs are missing.

Equipments can be held on beasts, and never consumed. Their effect are : Recovers HP during battle, Prevents status effects, Boosts attack, Reduces damage.

Piracy

The sprites of Beasts are from Pokemon, Digimon, Keitai Denjuu Telefang, Shin Megami Tensei : Devil Children, Mega Man Series.[3]

Also, this game lacks balance. For example, One-Hit KO moves have high accuracy, Some of high-damage inflicting moves(like Close Combat(無雙)) have too much PP for it, Shop and Beast Center are available at most places.
