Trivia / Pokémon Conquest

Go To

  • Alternate Company Equivalent: Koei later collaborated with Level-5 on the Japan-only Yo-kai Three Kingdoms, a similar crossover of Nobunaga's Ambition's brother series Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Pokémon rival Yo-Kai Watch.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: The official site for Pokémon Conquest gets a few details wrong, especially concerning the names of some nations. For example, Aurora gets called Primus, and Greenleaf gets called both Arbora and Sylvan. This may be the result of localized names being changed and the website's usage being left and forgotten.
  • Dummied Out:
    • An image featuring the male player character and his Eevee facing against Mitsuhide and his Moltres (which doesn't appear in the final game) was only used in the alpha build and is never used in the final game, though the graphic can still be found.
    • Sprites of Growlithe can be found in the game's graphics folder, suggesting that it (along with Arcanine, though the latter has no sprites) was supposed to be included in the game.
    • There are several bits of unused text, including names of gym leaders and villainous team members from various Pokémon games as well as trainer classes that would look out of place in this game (Firebreather, Tuber, Youngster, etc.). Also, classic Pokémon items (Poké Balls, Escape Rope, Exp. Share, etc.) have names, though all of their descriptions use placeholder text.
    • Then there are the "dummy" items, most notably the three "dummy" equipment that are supposed to raise the chance of recruiting warriors.note 
  • Marth Debuted in "Smash Bros.": Many Westerners confuse the half of the crossover providing the Sengoku Period motifs with Samurai Warriors instead of Nobunaga's Ambition. Given that Koei owns both franchises and reuses most of its art and characterization between the two, it's actually a reasonable guess.
  • What Could Have Been: Based on the Dummied Out contents, there are a few examples.
    • A Moltres is supposed to be present in the game (possibly as Mitsuhide's Perfect Link partner, judging by the alpha title screen).
    • Growlithe was planned to be added at one point in development, but the only things left of it are Dummied Out sprites.
    • If this game had never existed, we might have gotten a Fire Emblem and Pokémon crossover instead of Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, because Pokémon was Intelligent Systems' first choice, and they were turned down because this game already existed.
