Have there been many pokemon a like games since the GBA?

GBA, and GB/GBC saw loads of them; medabots, robopon, various dragon quest monsters games with jokers probably being the foremost, metal walker, arguably demi kids dark version at least, monster rancher maybe (though the PS1 version remains my favourite, wonder how many people have audio CDs to do things with today), telefang, jade cocoon. Most of which for me were better than pokemon.


Since then few half hearted digimon games (not that any would be pokemon clones have particularly lived up to the promise) and boring nonense like Yo-kai Watch... oh dear.

To answer the question about DS games specifically. You might consider Spectrobes if you are going to say Fossil Fighters is like it.

Dragon Quest Monsters Joker is a lot of fun. You join a tournament where you go around collecting monsters and breeding them to create new monsters.

I think it started to die down at GBA, and the DS was about the end of pokemania on handhelds as the more obvious clones moved to mobile (minus staples like Dragon Quest Monsters, obviously).

Of that, I would mostly suggest EvoCreo.  There are tons of freemium monster catching games out there but EvoCreo is not covered with what you would expect out of free mobile crud (and the dev actually tries to legitimately fix some issues found in Pokemon-style games).
