What you're talking about, I think, is what I think of as a "regional" Dex, and I don't know if I'm doing one. And if we're just talking about re-ordering the Pokémon in the file that lists them, I guess I could do that, too - or are we talking about creating a new sorting mode?
As for just adding or deleting Pokémon at a whim - well, I might add some, but I more than likely wouldn't delete any. I really wish I could do forms, though, rather than what I'm doing now; I also wish I could entirely exclude the Pokébots from the Dex while still retaining the ability to battle them and so forth.
But if wishes were fishes, beggars would have enough to eat, so...
Where's a Jirachi when you need one? XD
Well, how about with a reduced Pokédex? If it's a modified Pokédex with only a couple hundred Pokémon, I'll gladly put fakes in a reasonable spot. Besides, the new ones are "new" so it would make sense to put them at the end anyway. The older Pokémon are pretty much set in stone, and you might add or delete Pokémon all the time.
Seems a little awkward to have everything in order but the new ones (I'm talking about the new ones that belong in a family, like Joby and Jabaroo that belong to Kangaskhan, or the new Eeveelutions which, obviously, belong to Eevee), but we'll see, I guess. " I don't really know exactly how we'd be planning to do this, anyway. (And my list of Pokémon that are going in the game isn't 100% figured out yet - more like 80-95% XD)
Having you on as a translator to French sounds spiffy (because language support is the awesomesauce), but because work has been so slow, and translation probably shouldn't be done until near the end (so most/all of the text has been finalized)... I don't know how well it would work out.
I do really appreciate the interest, though, and all the offers of help. Whatever else comes of it, it's pretty encouraging.
No, I could just put them in at the end. My policy with Fakémon is they always go at the end of the Pokédex, no matter what order I use. If your game is small-scale (one region, clearly defined end to story, etc.), I can make a reduced Pokédex for you also. And I'm a really good writer in English and French, so I could translate and/or proofread in these languages.
That sounds awesome seeing as how it's always irked me that things were so out of order (yay for the Johto mode Dex of GSC :D XD). Guess it might be a little awkward to fit my new fakemon like Joby or the new Eeveelutions into that, though?
I have a reprogrammed Pokédex concept based on evolutionary families so it won't be a pain to find Pokémon. For example, you won't have to go from 2nd generation Elekid to 1st generation Electabuzz to 4th generation Electivire. I'd like to advertise some of my concepts for in-game mechanics and other improvements in Pokémon. Would you like to have your Pokédex reworked this way by me (for your game)?
Well, I can write/draw/map concepts for just about anything that you ask for. I really like how your game is a blend of Pokémon and traditional RPG's, so I'd like to offer my services to see that this game becomes a success.
