  • Exploration
  • Unlimited Options
  • Evil or Good
  • Different classes (Ranger, Trainer, Healer)
  • The original 151 Pokemon all in 3D and roaming freely
  • 1000's of Pokemon related items (Professionally modelled)
  • And more to be announced

I will make this thread all pretty and more informative eventually, for now I'm looking for a team to get started with. Send me a message on your abilities and how you can help.

This looks extremely overscoped, even for an idea thread.

Open world games are difficult to begin with, and require obscene attention to detail. Additionally, there is really no such thing as "Unlimited Options" or game developers would be unable to sustain a career. Including all of the original 151 Pokemon is a difficult undertaking as it requires each model to be fully rigged and keyframed, which can take a solid 24 hours of work for a single one. Additionally, having thousands of items "professionally" modeled would mean paying someone to create 3d models. Assuming you just mean high-quality, that takes a lot of effort for each model, but can be achieved fairly easily.

All that said, my paragraph there was merely a warning. If you believe you can pull it off, then by all means go for it. Just be aware of what you're committing to. I'm excited to see what you come up with, and wish you the best of luck in this endeavor.
