    Keitai Denjū Telefang (携帯電獣テレファング ,Keitai Denjū Terefangu?, lit. "Mobile Electric Beast Telefang") is a series of video games for the Game Boy Color, produced by Smilesoft and published by Natsume. The games are monster-battling games, where the player contacts various creatures using a cell phone-like device called a D-Shot in order to get them to battle the foes he or she will encounter. The name of the series derives from Keitai, which is Japanese for "cell phone," since phoning creatures is an integral part of the game, and "fang," to symbolise the various beasts involved.

    There are two games in the series as of 2002, the first for Game Boy Color and the later for Game Boy Advance. However, as Smilesoft went out of business in 2003[1], the prospects of another Telefang game are slim at best. Both games were divided into two versions: Power and Speed. Each version featured creatures who were either stronger or quicker, respectively.

    Gameplay

    Telefang revolves around collecting the phone numbers of various creatures, referred to as Denjū, that the player encounters. These are used to be able to request aid from them at a later time, should he or she require it. The game is played from a third person perspective, the player taking the role of the young protagonist, Shigeki.

    One Denjū stays by Shigeki's side at a time and follows him around, but in battle he can call up to two other Denjū to help him. Denjū will sometimes give him their phone numbers after he beats them in a random battle, but take longer to arrive in battle if they're originally from a distant area, due to getting lost. Sometimes, they may not even show up at all if called, so care must be taken to make sure that he is not calling a Denjū who is too far away.

    All Denjū have a range of statistics - HP, Speed, Power, Defense, Electric Power, and Electric Defense. These determine how powerful, fast, or robust any given Denjū is. The type of habitat a Denjū lives in determines how weak it is to attacks from Denjū from other habitats; there is a vulnerability chain that goes Mountain > Sky > Forest > Aquatic > Desert > Grassland > Mountain. This also applies in reverse, a Denjū of certain types inflicting less damage upon one it is weak to. This is slightly changed in Telefang 2 however, where Denjū's habitat types are defensive, and attacks are of separate offensive types such as Flame, Water, Machine, Thunder, etc. This arrangement makes Denjū a bit more versatile, as they may carry moves that would be effective against opponents they would normally have trouble against.

    In battle, the Denjū have an array of two to four attacks specific to their species. These cannot be altered, unless a Denjū evolves. Evolution is achieved by three different methods: Natural evolution, achieved by training them, Mod evolution, by giving them certain items in a mod evolution area, or Experimental evolution, achieved by taking the DNA of one Denjū with a Phone Card and giving it to the Denjū to be experimentally evolved. Some Denjū do not evolve. Evolution is permanent, however, in Telefang 2, evolution can be reversed if it was not by the Natural method. Battles are done in matches where each team may have anywhere from one to three Denjū participating. The battles are not strictly turn-based; the speed stat of a Denjū determines how many turns it can take, and when. Thus, a Denjū with a high Speed stat could attack twice for every time a Denjū with a low Speed goes once, also attacking before the low Speed Denjū can get a hit in.
    Shigeki, the protagonist, encounters his rival Kai for the first time, in Palm Sea. Their respective Denjuu, Fungus and Gymnos, are about to battle each other.

    Many Denjū have a special attack that needs to be charged up, and takes multiple turns to execute. This special attack does damage based on the Denjū's Electric Power stat, and is often considered not to be worth the wait. Due to the time it takes the special attack to charge, it is easy for the opponent to attack multiple turns or avoid the move entirely. In Telefang 2, instead of having to wait for an Electric Attack to charge, its use is limited by a DP meter. Other abilities—like skills that raise power or defense, or heal the user or its allies—vary from Denjū to Denjū.

    The use of items varies greatly between Telefang and Telefang 2. In the first games, items were only used for evolutions or gifts, not including a few items important to the storyline such as keys to unlock doors, or a plush Denjū toy that has been stolen. Evolution items are generally things that come from the human world that effect Denjū in some way when they are forcibly combined. These items range from things such as pencils and batteries to flamethrowers, computers, cranes, and shuriken. Denjū which evolve by the Reform method will only do so if they receive a specific item, certain items also give large amounts of experience points to Denjū without evolving them. In Telefang 2 though, evolution items are typed the same as Denjū (Mountain, Forest, Sky, etc.) and any item of the proper type can be used to evolve a Denjū, however different items may have certain effects on stat growth. Evolution items can also be thrown at enemy Denjū to attempt to befriend them easier, which is more likely if the item thrown matches their type. In addition to evolution items, there are also special items which can be held by Denjū to boost one of their stats. Telefang 2 also introduced items which can heal HP and DP, and cure status effects such as blindness or paralysis. Items can be purchased at shops or found in treasure chests. In Telefang 2, they may also be picked up after battles or found by running through grass.

    The Company who has the rights to the game should make it for the iPhones/iPods
    Or Apple should just buy it
    I'm sure they would be able to start competing with Nintendo who has Pokemon

    It's not a rip off.
    You don't catch them. But call em using a cellphone.
    lol don't get mad cuz of the itouch i said that cuz of the limit of text in the title cuz if i hadn't put the itouch you would've bit my head off for excluding it.
    There is no way on earth that a pokemon game will arrive to the Ipod Touch(happy?) or iPhone. Something like that would be great.

    Telefang was a piece of sh*t, literally. In fact, they branded it as Pokemon Diamond in some regions. Not to mention it has a bunch of bad language which wouldn't suit well with kids (which is what pokemon is targeted to)
