View Full Version : Pokemon: Ages (RMXP)

Got That Rhinox
August 10th, 2012, 4:58 AM
Greetings! I come bearing an idea and project that I plan on working on regularly. My knowledge of RMXP vastly overshadows my knowledge of scripting from a ROM and I feel I can have way more creativity over my game.

Here's The Pitch
Ever since Pokemon Red and Blue, Game Freak has stuck with the formula of
Catch Pokemon==>Train Pokemon==>Beat Elite 4 and this bothered me that over time, it becomes dull and stale to just go out and mindlessly beat gym leaders and mash the A button to bypass a daunted and shallow story.

That being said, Pokemon Ages plans on taking the game that this site is dedicated to and making it an epic adventure that warps the story arc and idea of what a Pokemon title is. Let me share with you what I have in mind for this project.

The Story
It has been 25 years since Red became the League Champion and disappeared from sight. This departure left the league in shambles for some time. Over in other regions, evil organizations and league champions came and went, causing immense havoc to the foundation of the Pokemon League. In efforts to try and save a crumbling league, the Pokemon League Committee decided on revamping and changing the rules to organized Pokemon combat. These changes forced gym leaders across the entire world to rethink and change their policies. Many leaders opposed the rule changes, causing them to be shut down, leading to an underground league that plays for Pokemon rights.

During this dilemma, Araphoxa, an ancient Pokemon from before time and matter, awoke from within the earth and caused the land above him to rupture and made a landmass appear. Seeking refuge for their underground league, refugees from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova all took pass to the new large island landmass they named Asyla.

Back within the main regions, Pokemon fanatic and technological pioneer, Bill, wants new trainers to be taught the correct way about training, raising and catching Pokemon. He decides to open the Pokemon Academy, on the land where his house one laid.

Your journey begins at that Academy; dropped off by your mother, in hopes on bringing Pokemon royalty back to your family line. Bill takes notice of you, reminding him of an old friend, long lost by time.

Your adventure takes turns and tolls as you traverse Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, the Orange Islands, Orre, and the new region, Asyla. You will make friends, enemy, reveal sinister and dark histories and find out your family line and how important your role is in it.

The Details
Im in the process of mapping right now to get the layout out of the way but I do have the basic outline of the features I want in this game.

All 649 Pokemon and 1 New One (maybe more)
Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, the Orange Islands, Orre, and the new region, Asyla.
New and Old Gym Leaders
Underground League
Trading League
Out of Battle Removal of HMs
Cities growing and shrinking
New Cities
New Routes
Less Water
Less Zubats
Epic Stories and Quests for all Regions
Epic Stories and Quests for May Legendaries
New and Old Characters

If any of this interests you, let me know your interest. I would love to have a 100% open collaboration on this project. I have quite a bit in mind, but it will be a massive game and will need quite a bit more to put in.

Please take a look at this thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=270871) and then post this in the Beginner's Showcase (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=230). This thread doesn't belong in this part of the forum.
