To be honest, this game doesn't stand out very far beyond the pokemon game of every kid and his cousin at this early a point. The story could possibly compel potential players enough to bother with it, but the graphics (in terms of palettes and sprites) seem completely uninspiring. Try to add more texture to the roof of the pokemon lab. Also, give small amounts of interest to the map areas instead of the wide open spaces which you have. A little goes a long way to add to a game's impression.
