Gather round, young nerds. You already know lovers of Minecraft are some of the most fanatic (and brilliant!) people around. They're basically programmers, finding ways to become super inventive within the game's platform.

It appears once particular gamer, Magib1, was bitten by the nostalgia bug and decided to build a fully functional version of Pokémon Red in Minecraft. The player even crafted a Game Boy Color screen to make the whole thing feel that much realer.

The Nerdist shows us that the guy got super detailed: There's a even a Pokédex. He told the publication:

“When the player clicks, a reader armor stand moves and clones the row of new textures behind the display...display armor stands then detect the block type and stick the corresponding texture on their head before moving. The player model is just swapping between a static walking and standing texture.”

Well there you have it! If that's not enough geeky gaming fun for you, take our quizzes: Which Dragon Ball Super Saiyan Are You? and Which Starter Pokémon Should You Choose?
