Or decide you don't want to evolve if you have an evolved form. For once this will show what the inside of a PokeBall looks like. Or, you may refuse to go into your PokeBall. The choice is yours in this new game from the trainer's Pokemon's point of view.
But if you do decide to go into your PokeBall, even if your trainer puts you in the PC don't think there will be nothing to do. There is a whole different world inside of the PokeBall. While inside the PokeBall you may find items, battles or just form adventure teams with other Pokemon that your trainer has caught. If you form teams with Pokemon your trainer has caught you can even have a team base. Best of all you will always be the leader of that team. You may name your Team whatever you'd like.
What I need help with is getting all those advanced features into the game. I know it's possible. Pokemon Ruby Destiny Rescue Rangers was changed a lot kinda like this.
CopyPasta'd from your thread :O
A novel idea, but this isn't actually a
you've written a
for a game.
Storylines determine how the game progresses from one overarching sequence to another - Concepts are related to how the game itself is played. To give you an example of a concept, in an average Pokemon game, you go around catching and battling Pokemon whilst gaining badges - There is no actual story incorporated into this. There may be linearity (e.g. progressivly winning your badges in a set order), but there are no
circumstances that destroy the status quo, forcing you to go above and beyond the call of duty for any reason (e.g. various encounters with Team Aqua/ Magma with an overarching plan to cpntrol Kyogre/ Groudon).
You've also come into a area of Pokemon where there is actually that much canon regarding the issue. Noone's been inside a Pokeball, and official sources have never revealed what happens inside, so if you play your cards correctly and competently explain what is happening to the player, you've basically won yourself a land where you can do
you want with few (if any) canonical restrictions.
A storyline help thread isn't the best place to ask how to implement stuff like that into your hack either... :/
