Pokemon: Indigo Showdown
5 Attachment(s)
I've loved Pokemon since I was a little kid. They were those long hours of playing Red/Blue on road trips and those days where I watched the whole first season of the anime. But there was nothing I loved more than reading the manga. I was really happy the day I saw Pokemon Manga Red, a fangame based off the Manga. The project was canceled before I knew it, and one day I decided to attempt to make the game myself! This game will be based off the Pokemon Kanto Manga following the first 40 rounds/chapters (I am considering adding the Yellow Issues but right now just the Red, Green, and Blue issues). And I am using one of the most convenient programs ever RPG Maker XP as the program that I'll use for the project.

You are Red a Pokemon Trainer from the town of Pallet Town. Your childhood was you bragging about being the greatest Pokemon Trainer ever. One day you find a very powerful Pokemon in the woods and get defeated. You realize that you aren't the best trainer around and you decide to set off on a journey to become a Pokemon Master!

Play as Red and capture all of the Pokemon he catches as you travel around Kanto and obtain badges and defeat Team Rocket!
There aren't any Poke Balls in this game, instead you capture the Pokemon in cutscenes. (Inspired from the fangame Pokemon Manga Red)
There are campsites on Routes because they are some pretty big maps in the game. (Inspired from the fangame Pokemon Manga Red)
Re-mapped version of Kanto! Much bigger maps.

Possible Features:
Play as Red, Green, and Blue! (This will be something I might add in once I'm finished with Red's Story. This will make the game a lot longer and kind of give it a Sonic Adventure battle feel I think. But first thing's first! I'm doing Red's Story).
Post-Game things (A lot of time passes between the R/B/G chapter and Yellow chapter I might add in my own feel to the game. Give the player side quests, and much more up until the cliffhanger at the beginning of the Yellow Chapter.)

Beta Downloads:
Demo #1:
This demo will be playing up to Round 5 of the Manga. The next beta will be posted once I finish Round 14 (Which is the end of the first issue of the Manga). It will be a bit of a longer wait, but I'm thinking at max the next demo will be released in 2 months (but most likely less). Enjoy it, guys! By the way I'm aware of most of the bugs in the game but feel free to post any. I believe there is no possible way for the bugs to affect your game in a negative way however. If you are having issues with getting an event to work just watch the walkthrough/progress videos I have below here and they should help you out.

Round 1 -
Round 2 -
Round 3 -
Round 4 -
Round 5 -
I've made more progress on the game then this! I will be posting the other video links as soon as I get the chance to upload the other videos!

Help Wanted!:
I just need someone to supply me with some custom overworld sprites! A scripter who helps me with cut scenes would also be appreciated because I don't have all the knowledge in the world about doing cut scenes. Otherwise I wish to handle this project by myself. I don't want a huge team because that's to stressful on me and the other possible members. :) If you wish to help with something I didn't mention I will be okay with it however. :) Beta testers aren't needed everyone on this site can be my beta testers!
Sprites needed:
Green (Most of you know him as Gary). Surfing on Golduck and Flying on Pidgeot (Just like the Gyarados and Aerodactly sprites with Red below.)
Back Sprite for Green (This is something I will DEFINATELY need before my next demo release! So if you guys want to see that ASAP tell me what ya know, haha.)
Red riding on Gyarados Sprite - Will be the Surf Animation
Red riding on Aerodactyl Sprite - Will be at a Side Scroll point of view
That's all I need for the whole project! I will give you credit for these sprites of course!

RPG Maker XP for being an awesome program!

Pokemon Essentials for being an AMAZING base game that I used to start up my game!
Most of the Overworld Sprites from CNG's HGSS Starter Kit. for supplying me with beautiful sounding midi files that I could use in my game! And also some midis from the Pokemon Essentials base game.

I like the idea but no pokeballs??? Wow okay maybe if i have time i'll beta test it for you. Otherwise check out my project. Good luck. And let the odds be ever in your favor.

TheAgentBrandon September 25th, 2012 6:47 PM

Thanks sir. And let me explain about my reason for the no Poke Ball gimic. So you're playing the game and the game is made to be exactly like the Manga right? What happens if you don't capture a certain Pokemon? Well then an unnecessary cut scene is shown. I feel that this game should be more about the Manga experience. We've all had the Pokemon experience already, there isn't to much of a difference you just aren't able to capture certain Pokemon until the game is over. Ensuring that you felt the Manga experience at the end of the game.

To me this isn't just a Pokemon game, it's a tribute to the Manga. And I feel the Manga is much more unappreciated compared to the anime. Make sense? But thank you for your input on that, I was waiting to see a reaction on that to be honest. And I checked out your thread not to long ago. :)

Whitney's Shaymin September 25th, 2012 7:22 PM

so than exactly happens after you beat the game? if you can't catch new pokemon than what can you do?

TheAgentBrandon September 25th, 2012 7:40 PM

You CAN Catch any Pokemon at the end of the game just not all 151 (Because otherwise if I make a sequel it wouldn't make sense to the story line). But besides that I also plan for there to be a lot of Pokemon Tournaments, a lot of side quests where you have to go item searching on any of the maps of the game. But hey I want to focus on the Main Story right now anyway. This is kind of just a "What if" type of deal haha.

Whitney's Shaymin September 25th, 2012 8:15 PM

okay okay now i need to work on my game. Better to work on yours to.

TheAgentBrandon September 25th, 2012 8:23 PM

Haha no worries I've done my fair share for the day. I did 3-4 hours of work today actually. Have fun working on your game dude.

TheAgentBrandon September 26th, 2012 1:52 PM

I am now officially accepting helpers! I realized why not have them if you're developing a game they could speed up the process of doing this! I'll accept everyone and anyone who wants to be nice and help me out! :) By the way beta downloads will be available.... TONIGHT! There are SOME mapping glitches I'm aware of but none that will affect your game.

ChaosLord September 26th, 2012 4:29 PM

Looks pretty good. I could probably help you out with most of the sprites you listed(Except maybe ZapMolCuno) since I'm working on adding in all gen overworlds for my own game, but they're in BW format. If that's cool, I could PM you the resources I've gathered with the proper credits probably by tomorrow or so.

TheAgentBrandon September 26th, 2012 7:16 PM

@ChaosLord that sounds amazing! Thank you so much for the generosity! It's really appreciated! :) I'll just contact you tommorow via PM on this site asking the question, sound good? If you feel rushed about it, it won't have to be tommorow, just go at a comfortable pace. :) Thanks again. :)

TheAgentBrandon September 27th, 2012 8:33 PM

A lot of Overworld Sprites have been supplied! Check out the remaining ones if you think you could help me out.

yiliang99 September 27th, 2012 10:01 PM

this game looks fun :D.Can't wait for the full version cause I like the pokemon manga too.

TheAgentBrandon September 28th, 2012 10:51 AM

It has been fun to make I tell you that. :D If your curious in terms of progress I just finished with the 2nd Pokemon Gym not to long ago so I'm pretty quick in terms of progress. It has its bugs but I feel this site needs some completed fangames so I'm doing all I can to make this game one of them. :)

Whitney's Shaymin November 16th, 2012 6:51 AM

wow you've done work since last time i checked. Keep it up.
