Hello, I'm ~JV~ and I'd like to tell a little about the game's history beforehand. Pokémon Uranium was first started back in 2008, where I posted a thread in the Progressing Games board. The game went through a lot of changes after all those years, 4 to 5 threads, 5 released demos, many people joining and leaving our team and after all the game is finally near completion! I and Involuntary-Twitch are doing our best to give everyone the best fangame possible, it's made with love! I hope you all liked playing our demos and are as excited as us for the final release!
THE TANDOR REGION
Pokemon Uranium takes place in the tropical Tandor region, home to over a hundred new and unique species of Pokemon. The Tandor region is known for its gym challenge: to qualify, trainers must collect 8 gym badges from around the region in order to compete in the prestigous Tandor Regional Tournament. Trainers that win the Tournament get a huge monetary prize as well as world wide renown.
The region of Tandor is split in two:
, the continental part of Tandor, home of 5 of the gyms in the game and also it's there where the Regional Championship takes place.
The other half is
, an archipelago containing some medium sized islands and a bunch of small ones, it's where the other 3 gyms are.
The main feature of Tandor though is it's pokémon! They are unique all across the world being most of the species endemic to the region! You can learn about the entire region and it's pokémon by visiting our
A NEW JOURNEY STARTS
You, a 13-year-old kid from Moki Town, did not set out to become a Pokemon Master. After your mother Lucille died ten years ago in an accident at a nuclear power plant, your father Kellyn , an experienced Pokemon Ranger in the Tandor Ranger Union, left you with your elderly aunt and departed to travel the region. But now that you are grown up, your aunt can no longer support you. Out of a home, you did what most kids your age do and took up Pokémon training as a means to make a living.
Professor Bamb'o, regional expert on Pokémon elements, has been looking for a trainer assistant to travel the region and gather specimens of the varied wildlife. You step up to the challenge, along with your rival, a younger boy named Theo. After taking a test and receiving your starter Pokémon, you head towards your first gym badge in Nowtoch city, and your first steps exploring the Tandor region.
Things aren't as sunny as they first seem, though. Just when the accident ten years ago started to be forgotten, new mysteries emerge. A new power plant is built over the site of the old one. Your father begins acting strangely, journeying to the far reaches of the region and questioning whether your mother really is dead. Sinister Pokemon, corrupted by nuclear radiation, threaten innocent people. Amidst all the turmoil, it seems that a great impending disaster is looming over Tandor... It seems you may be in for more than you expected.
A lush, vast region to explore
Explore Tandor, find secrets, talk to interesting and sometimes silly characters.
Discover new pokémon
Experiment once again the joy that is learning about new pokémon, learning their stats, movesets, abilities, evolutions etc. It's a whole new generation!
Give your shot at Uranium's nuzlocke mode! Customize your adventure by adding many custom rules to this already challenging mode. It's the most complete nuzlocke system of any fangame, I promise.
The novelties won't end when the game gets released! Have fun downloading special pokémon selected by us developpers and also expect items that will reveal parts and stories of Tandor never seen before!
Global Trading System
Yes! There is a GTS on this fangame! It's real, a feature never seen before on a game of this magnitude and as concrete as Uranium. IT'S WORKING!
The GTS wasn't enough? Well, what about Wonder Trade, one of the new features on the 6th gen? EXCLUSIVE to Uranium, I promise we are the only ones with this system as of now!
More online functionality! Upload your trainer so others can battle your AI controlled virtual trainer online! There are global rankings, ranked/random battles and also if you want, you can search and battle your friends, on a friendly match.
*online features not available on the demos
TANDOR REGION STARTERS
As with almost all Pokémon games, Pokémon Uranium gives the player a choice of one of three Starter Pokémon at the beginning. They are given to the player by Professor Bamb'o after the player takes a Pokemon Trainer Test. The available starter Pokémon are Orchynx (grass/steel), Raptorch (fire/ground), and Eletux (water/electric).
The starters in Uranium are different from the starters in the main Pokémon game series in that they each evolve only once, in their late 20s, and they all get a Mega Evolution later on in the game. Additionally, each has 2 types rather than one, allowing for more strategy. The reason they are like this is to make the game challenging and different.
