A bit of an update. I promised screenshots and here they are.
This shows the lab, and picking a starter screen. They will sit in poke balls on the table, until Oak asks you to take one. At that point they pop out so you can see them.
Me talking to my Weavile, who doesn't seem to like me very much yet
A sneak peak of the first gym. (I know the person in the lower corner is on the tree. That has been fixed) Joey is the gym leader. All of the gyms in Pokemon Melanite will have a battle field, where the gym battle takes place. They will also have wild pokemon inside, that are uncatchable
I am still working on remaking all the maps, and making more. I hope to have more screenshots soonish
