Pokemon: The Cure
Pokemon: The Cure

Made with: RPG Maker XP

Hi there, my name is Doriam Manuel. I’m 18, and will be graduating high school soon. I am normally a fakemon spriter, I prefer to work with MS Paint and programs that are simple and to the point. I’ve used RMXP for a while now, though I took a long break at the beginning of this school year so I could focus on my senior year; as it draws to a close I’ve started to have more time for this project. That said, I suppose I’ll go through and introduce the project itself. I apologize ahead of time for the lack of images, i'm currently working on the story and fakemon before I go into mapping and characters.

I’m hoping to construct a game in a way that makes it more real-time, in a sense, to the player. I plan on implementing a basic one-on-one battle system (possibly introducing higher number battles later) where stats, such as speed, play a more important roll. I want to combine the concepts of pokemon with the style of a typical RPG in which your character/pokemon use time-based turns instead of turn-by-turn mechanics. In theory, this means your pokemon will also be able to hold more than 4 moves at a time, allowing for greater strategy on the part of the player.

Welcome to Otlair (Story)
Welcome to Otlair, a small island region which excels greatly in its scientific advances both in medicine and in creation and research. You are the child of a doctor (father) and a scientist (mother), and they have raised you the best they can so that when it comes time for you to leave the nest, you would be prepared. Coincidentally, today is your eighteenth birthday, which means it’s about time you leave, right? Right. Well, that’s what your parents had always taught you anyway. As you are getting ready to leave, your mother gives you and your best friend a parting gift; your first partner!

You live with your roommate and best friend in Otlair City, not too far off the coast. Recently, you two have been hearing on the news about a strange sickness infesting the nearby regions. Of course, something like that could easily be cured by the people of Otlair, considering their research departments are some of the best, right? So there is nothing to worry about, and it’s been said that the creature of the region cannot be affected due to a special gene twisted into their DNA.

One day, you and your friend travel back to Carter city to visit your parents. You are near the border of Carter when your friend falls threateningly ill. You take him to your parents in hope that they can help him. However, you find that your home town has been compromised by the sickness, and nearly every building has been quarantined. The center is bustling with more activity than you have ever seen in your eighteen years, and all your former neighbors are sick with what is being called the new age Plague.

All but two of them anyway. Old Man Oriel and Old Lady Ilene whose house is the only one not covered in quarantine tape from left to right, top to bottom.

They offer you knowledge, a history of the region’s past. Should you choose to accept it, you embark on a journey to find the cure across Otlair’s landmasses. Of course, with any journey come obstacles as you embark on several sub-quests leading to discover of The Cure. And with any protagonist, there must be an antagonist; ironically named The Cure.

The Cure is a company that has recently crossed to Otlair from another region. Their purpose is unclear, but they have buildings, large and small, in a number of cities. It is widely thought that The Cure is the company to blame for the recent introduction of the Plague to Otlair, but there is no proof one way or the other.

Sorry to post without anyone else giving feedback but this has been in waiting for approval for two days and I would like to get it noticed. So is there any feedback or questions I can answer for people?

ProdigyX April 21st, 2011 8:48 PM

The story is very different, not very Pokemon like, but i guess thats what you plan on doing. :)
The sprites look pretty good, actually mostly very good besides some.. like what are human beings doing there!?
And i like the game play change, makes it more strategic.

Valora17 April 21st, 2011 9:06 PM

Yeah that conversation has been had several times now. Haha, the human-like pokemon will be resprited to look more pokemon-like. And I'm glad that you find the changes atleast partially interesting.

TheMarkCrafter April 21st, 2011 10:52 PM

Can i work with your team? I will be a spriter.

Valora17 April 21st, 2011 11:05 PM

TBH I wouldn't even trust this guy. He keeps bugging me about spriting his trainers for his game. If anything he'll just take stuff from your game (idea) for his own.


Valora17 April 22nd, 2011 3:52 PM

Hey guys, I'm in desperate need of a mapper right now. I realize that this wont get many critiques until I get some screenshots up and I'm not the best mapper out there. D: So if you're interested, please send me a PM :)

Valora17 April 23rd, 2011 5:36 PM

Small update, here is a small portion of Carter Beach.

It's not much to look at right now, but yeah. The tiles were made by thedeadheroalistair of Deviantart and he will be credited in the first post. :)

TheMarkCrafter April 24th, 2011 10:46 PM

24 and 25 looks like humans!
But why? and How?

Valora17 April 24th, 2011 11:18 PM

That's already been discussed and they will be redone. There isn't much to read, so please go through and read comments before reposting someting I've already explained.

Arma April 25th, 2011 1:45 PM

If you need a mapper, I can help you out. PM me if you're interested.

I like your story, it's different which makes the game more interesting.

I've got mixed feelings about your fakemon, some look great, like the fire starter's line and some... not so.

You should take the boy and girl fakemon and edit them so that they can be trainers in your game.

DarkDoom3000 April 25th, 2011 1:55 PM

wow, totally love the plot. very unique. has me interested.

Valora17 April 25th, 2011 3:58 PM

elarmasecreta I will PM you :) The maps you posted on my page were actually very goood. :) And I planned onpossibly respriting them, but changing these two to become trainers is a good idea; though I still need to find something to fill their spot, if not resprite thema nyway.

DarkDoom3000 huzzah! Thanks, I really hope I can pull off everything I have planned. :)

Valora17 April 30th, 2011 1:35 PM

Hey guys, so I haven't updated in a bit but here is a small update. I ended up collecting more tiles (Now my tileset is compoesd of Alucus and Alistair), and created a new map of Carter. This is only about half of it, but this is where you start. :)

I will be updating with Screenshots soon I hope. :)

Ces soirees-la April 30th, 2011 3:21 PM

great, now those tiles aren't original

That's a really beautiful map, the design is laid out very well.
My only quarrel is the green tree shadows on sand, and the trees that don't have shadows at all, they look a bit odd.

The main problem with this map is that it's too empty, try walking through it, you'll often see nothin but sand, try filling out everything with some trees, chairs and such.

I saw them and they are in the new map(s)


Here is a small update. I've been working a lot in RMXP to get some progress done but I'm having some trouble getting a lot done because I am focusing a lot on the last few weeks of my senior year. It's almost done, so I have more time here and there which is good. Anywho, i was wondering how much (time-wise) do you guys think is enough to release a Beta? I don't want to rush anything, I'm just curious.

PokemasterX July 1st, 2011 6:54 AM

a first beta should be at least 1 gym though if u really want to release it before a gym just to let the public see how it is, u should call it an alpha. if u want i will be a beta tester for ur game,and also a "story builder" as u call it.

Beegu July 2nd, 2011 10:51 AM
