INTRO

Journey to a time before Professor Oak was a glint in his mothers eye. Set in Kanto 600 years before Red started his journey, you will encounter many challenges as you tour the region. Play a game that is different from other Pokemon games yet still feels the same. The game is created in RPGMaker XP using Flameguru and Poccil's starter kit.

STORY

in Viridian City, a young girl is lying in her bed, having trouble getting to sleep. The rain outside is pounding down hard and is a little scary. Her Grandfather, whom she lives with, comes in to check on her and finds she is still awake. Trying to get her to sleep he tells her a story of another young girl that lived in the same area 600 years ago.

600 years ago. A time before Professor Oak's ancestors settled in Kanto. A time before everything that is available now was never imagined. Viridian City is not built. The Pokemon League has not been formed and there are no badges. There is no bridge between Celadon City and Fuschia City. Kanto is not the place it is now. It has survived many bad times including an invasion but has started to return to it's former glory. The number of Pokemon that have shown up in the area is rising every year. Some people believe the number of different species is over 100. Some of the older trainers claim they have seen over 150 different kinds. In the last 200 years there have been sightings of three large bird Pokemon but nobody has been able to find them or even see them up close.

Somebody in the region is very excited. In her bedroom on Viridian Farm a young girl (Maizy Verde) is anxiously awaiting her birthday. Her father has promised to give her a special present now she is grown up. Little does she know that the present she will receive will take her on an adventure so great and fun, it will also be dangerous. Another thing she doesn't know is that other forces are watching her every move. A force that can sense catastrophes and travel in time. These forces are maneuvering Maizy through her journey towards her destiny.

FEATURES

- The maps are made using default RPG maker tilesets.

- Difficulty settings. You are able to choose how hard you want the game to be. An easy game gives you lower level Pokemon but you get more experience. The opposite applies for a difficult game.

- The player character (Maizy) is set to female.

- The rival has been chosen. His name is James and the Pokemon he has depends on the difficulty setting you choose.

- Time plays a bigger part than in official games - i.e. Shops will be open between 9am and 5pm.

- As well as time, you also have day based events.

- Certain area's will be busier at different times of the day.

- Though you only battle with up to 6 Pokemon, you have instant access to all of them thanks to the Pokebag.

- Roaming merchants will be going round the region with specialities (e.g. heal items, evolution items).

- No Pokeballs - will be using Apricorns.

- Full Pokedex has 198 Pokemon - The pokedex has been reordered and recreated. Some Pokemon have been removed. It is also not called a Pokedex, it is now a Pokepad.

- No fakemon - Don't like them.

- Pokecenter's haven't been invented yet. There are Inn's set around the region.

- Pokemart's are simple shops.

- No random battles, talking to overworld Pokemon will start a battle.

SCREENSHOTS

Example of Day events. The wandering Merchant visits the farm on a Thursday.
