''Invizimals'' is a PSP-exclusive [[{{Mon}} Mon-catching]] game developed by Spanish developer Novarama. It makes intensive use of AugmentedReality technology.

A {{mad scientist}} working with other mad scientists in the [[ProductPlacement Sony PSP]] R&D lab discovers [[{{Mon}} invisible animals]] that can be seen only when a person with a particularly powerful [[BattleAura aura]] uses the PSP camera attachment. His [[AuraVision sensors]] indicate you have a [[ChosenOne very powerful aura]], so he proceeds to teach you how to [[GottaCatchEmAll capture these creatures]].

The game combines live-action briefings with gameplay that takes place through the PSP's camera and microphone.

It has spawned a plethora of sequels for UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable, UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita and UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, as well as a Trading Card Game and other various pieces of merchandise. A 26-episode [[{{WesternAnimation/Invizimals}} animated series]] entitled ''Invizimals: The Alliance Files'' was made in 2012, and the first 13 episodes were released on Creator/{{Netflix}} in 2015.[[note]]Although Netflix says it was released in 2013.[[/note]]

'''Warning:''' [[IncomingHam It also contains]] Creator/BrianBlessed.

!!This game contains examples of:
* BadassAdorable: Par for the course in a {{Mon}} game. Many of the unevolved Invizimals curl up to sleep on their status pages, adding to the adorable factor.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Campbell]] hired Kaminsky to steal the [[{{Phlebotinum}} technology to capture Invizimals]].
%%* BlueBlood: Sir Sebastian Campbell.
* CommonPlaceRare: An attempt to steal the technology to capture Invizimals is central to the [[ExcusePlot plot]], and yet there are trainers all over the world who already have it and are waiting to do battle...
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: A common feature with {{mon}} games, it's here too.
* GottaCatchEmAll: It's a {{mon}} game so this is also a feature.
* InsistentTerminology: In the west, we call it an "X" button. Kenichi calls it "the cross button." Of course, [[JustifiedTrope he's from Japan]].
* LargeHam: We have mentioned that Creator/BrianBlessed is in this game, right?
* {{Mon}}: They exist. They are called "Invizimals."
* NoFourthWall:
** In an effort to take this as far as possible, the interface is a physical card at which you point the camera, making the gameplay take place in the camera view of wherever you physically are.
** Also, there is no player character, only the player.
* ProductPlacement: Oddly, for the system on which the game is played. The characters never fail to mention it's on the PSP.
* PunnyName: The [[{{Mon}} Invizimals]] themselves tend toward these, including Bearserker, Porcupain, Furmin...
* StarterMon: You can choose whether to catch Stingwing or Ironbug in the first game.
* StockSoundEffects: The Fire Dragon has [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Zilla]]'s roar.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Kenichi loves "snacks".
* TitleDrop: While it's to be expected in a game named for the major gameplay element, Kenichi explicitly names them in an early briefing, as though he just came up with that name on the spot.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential:
** In addition to battling the Invizimals against each other, at least two of the creatures are caught by sneaking quietly up on them[[note]]The game uses the microphone often[[/note]] and ''slapping your hand flat down on top of them as fast as you can'', effectively crushing your new pet the moment you see it. It's completely unharmed, of course.
** In a betting match, you can choose to [[GottaCatchEmAll capture]], [[VideoGameCaringPotential forgive]], or [[NeverSayDie destroy]] a defeated Invizimal.
* WorldOfHam: In addition to the aforementioned Creator/BrianBlessed[[note]][[RuleOfThree I did mention him, right]]?[[/note]], Kenichi Nakamura, the aforementioned discoverer of the titular {{mon}}s, is fond of scenery as well. And snacks. The first Hunter of whom you get video is pretty ham-tastic as well.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: The game logo emphasizes this. Apparently, the title is not ''Invizimals'', but ''[=inviZimals=]''.
