Also, on that notion of fakemon, I like most of the sprites, however I think 101 of them would be quite ambitious and a little too many to be quite frank, but that's me. To be honest, what you're lacking majorly, is diversity between your screenshots, the updates look the same as the original screens and I think you need to mix it up a little, add to your tileset for example. The mapping seems to be quite good however, maybe you should push the boundaries and take the advantage of RMXP and add depth with the ability to add more tiles, more flow and more features to your mapping style.

All in all, you've got a steady base, you just need to work on convincing us that there's more than just aesthetics to this game, I'd like to see some events and some more towns with a different look than those already shown. Best of luck with your project, if you need further critique I'm free to offer my assistance.

First of all, I understand your worry fakemon-wise, but I also want to focus on player choice. With the storyline taking presidence, player choice would therefore suffer as a consequence (I originally wasn't even going to allow gender or name chocie for sake of the storyline). More fakemon = more player choice. I also want to create a game the player can become immersed in. I have revealed (so-far) very little about the backstories of towns or what they contain or about fakemon's movesets or even the typing of the gym leaders. This is to create an unknown fronteir for the player to explore and discover. Using and developing the fakemon is part of that.

As for events, nothing is very sleek at the moment. This will arrive, eventually.

Tiles. In an ideal world I would have tilers of the same quality as Garnet's or Helios' making unique tiles for the game. Unfortunately, it is just me and my lack of talent in this field means I have been using public tilesets by Alistair and CalisProjects so far, which are brilliant - just not unique. I will have to tile myself at points - the pyramids, ski resort etc. - but what I really need is someone who can sit down and make some stunning tiles.

Thanks for taking the time to formulate and type such an in-depth response. That's how I improve the game. :cer_smile:

If you can find a skilled tile artist, this game will definetly have my respect, Cynic.
Unfortunately that is the project's Achille's Heel. I am going to try my best to grab the attension of possible tile-spriters through Pokecommunity and Deviantart in order to get more unique tiles. I can make tiles myself, and will have to eventually; I'm just not very good at it. :cer_smile:

Oh, and Can you Ride Kyusak?
I just thought of some Moves that might Be good for your game.
Ride: Maybe HM.The Pokemon Charges at the Opponent.It can also be used to go Faster on Flat Terrain.
Power:90
Accuracy: 100
Toxic Health:Kyusak's Evolutionary Line Move. It can Powerfully Poison an Opponent, but can also be used on an Ally to heal them by one quarter of their Max Health.
Power:---
Accuracy:70
Those are some Of My Ideas.
~Ruler Arceus

The Elite 4 are at Ascension Castle.


I dislike the idea of so may HM's. "Ride" would just be a natural feature.

Thanks for making a suggestion, but stats abilities etc. have already been decided. Trust me, you will not be disapointed.

And yes, you can ride Kyusak. :cer_wink: They're a bit rare though.

The whole game will be made more sleek prior to any release. Don't worry. :cer_wink:
