Why, thank you very much. Eye seduction is the best kind of seduction :P
Thanks, and don't worry, more is coming soon.
Oak isn't in the region for the entire game - He is only present at the beginning to do the rounds of his Lowen lab before returning to Kanto/ Johto. I have plans for him to return later in the story, but at this point I'm keeping my lips sealed. Thanks for bringing that up, I realise that I didn't make that clear at all :P
Minor update: I'm finishing off my exam period in two days so I can get back to working on Lilac on a regular basis pretty soon. Over the weekend I have inserted a new textbox, made the game far more de-capitalised than what it was and created a small event at the beginning which will introduce a recurring character who will be sure to push you all the way in your quest to be a Pokemon Master. Possible screenies up soon.
At this point all I can really do is polish what is on the ROM and go over a few things which I have neglected earlier on :D
