2.) The Story
3.) New Pokemon
4.) New Abilities
5.) New Moves
6.) The Region
7.) Towns
8.) The Characters
9.) The Pokemon Solar/Lunar Team

Part 1- Introduction

Welcome to the world of Pokemon Solar and Lunar Versions. Pokemon Solar and Lunar takes you on a journey across the region of Isho and meet over 100 new pokemon while on a quest to take down the evil Team Cosmos and become the Pokemon League champion.

Part 2- The Story

The story of Pokemon Solar and Lunar takes place in the region of Isho, which consists of two landmasses divided by a sea. The western landmass is the largest and with the most establishments, and the eastern landmass is the smallest with the fewest towns. A normally peaceful region, the evil Team Cosmos has been wreaking havoc across the land, stealing pokemon and rare items. Who can stop their rampage of chaos?

In the peaceful town of Tinygem, a 10-year old kid wakes up in the rays of the morning sun, looking forward to getting their first pokemon and starting a journey to become a Pokemon Master. In this case, we will use the male character, Max. When Max walks down the stairs, he finds that three Team Cosmos grunts and their mysterious leader, Mystique, have broken into his house. The grunts start battling his mother and her Yawnie. Max's mom ends up losing to the grunts’ pokemon, then Mystique commands the grunts go through the bookshelf. They rummage through it, grab two very old books titled "The Legend of the Solar Being" and "The Legend of the Lunar Being” and run off with them. Mystique laughs and says, "Sorry little boy, but you can't stop Team Cosmos from obtaining what I rightfully deserve!", then she walks out of the house. Max runs to his mom to see if she is alright. She says that Team Cosmos stole a very important book explaining about the legendary pokemon of Isho. What would Team Cosmos want with information on the Pokemon of the Sun and Moon???

Suddenly, the main character’s childhood friend, Emma, comes into the house to remind the main character that they have to go to Professor Holly to get their first pokemon. She sees the mess Team Cosmos made in Max’s house and asks his mom what happened. Max’s mom explains to Emma what happened, then tells Max and Emma to go ahead to Professor Spruce’s lab and she will deal with the mess. The two kids then head off to Route 301 and on to Ruburgh Town, where Professor Holly’s laboratory is located.

When Max and Emma arrive in the quiet mountainous town of Ruburgh, they go straight to Professor Holly's lab, which sits on a hill overlooking the town. Professor Holly greets the two kids and offers them a choice of three starter pokemon: Aquotter, Embear, and Treecoon. Max chooses his first pokemon, then accepts a Pokedex and 5 Poke Balls from Professor Spruce, then starts to walk off. But once Emma gets her pokemon and items, she says she challenges you to a battle. Whether Max wins or loses, Professor Holly is impressed with Max and Emma’s battling, and recommends that they take on the Pokemon League Challenge. Max and Emma are interested in the proposition, and Professor Holly tells them to go to Sappharbor City to take on the first gym. Emma takes off first, followed by Max, both determined to get to Sappharbor City. And for Max to get revenge on the evil Team Cosmos…

Part 6- The Region

The land of Isho is not fully complete, but details and some of the cities have been made. The region is made up of two main landmasses divided by a sea. The largest is the western landmass, which hosts most of the cities and towns, and is mountainous and has a lot of forest. The eastern landmass is the smallest and shaped like a crescent. It is a tropical region with a volcano in the middle of it. The theme of the towns and cities are gems and stones.

The hometown of the main character is Tinygem Town, situated in the Western landmass of the region. The towns following are Ruburgh Town, Sappharbor City, Emerwood City, Diamopolis City, Amberelic City, Celequartz Town and Frostone City. Located south of the landmass is Tropal Island, a small isle filled with tropical plants and Pokemon. On the eastern landmass lies Dentech City, Igneoridge Town and Pearlshore City. In the ocean is Blucoral Town and the Pokemon League.

Part 7- Towns

Tinygem Town- The hometown of the main character. No other significance in the game.

Ruburgh Town- A small town situated in the foothills of the western landmass. A hill overlooks the town, and Professor Holly's lab is situated on the hill.

Sappharbor City- A major port town, with access to the ferry service leading to Tropal Island. It is home to the first gym, lead by Marina, a user of water-types.

Emerwood City- A "green city" with citizens that recycle and do everything they can to keep the environment clean. The second gym of the Isho League is in the town, lead by the flying-type trainer, Aeron.

Diamopolis City- The largest city in the Isho region. The city hosts the Normal Rank Pokemon Contest Hall, Isho Department Store and Game Corner. It also is home to the ever-spectacular Isho Science Institute, where the region's leading scientists meet to connect with each other and share data, as well as announcing breakthrough discoveries. A subway is located in the town, with four stations (inspired by Mezereon City).

Amberelic City
- An ancient mountain city full of history and tradition. The center of trade and commerce of the ancient Isho region, the city hosts a network of underground ruins, ancient buildings, and artifacts, and the city's proximity to the Divine Temple gives the city a feel of an archeological dig site. The third gym is lead by the ground-type trainer, Terrence, who is the caretaker of the city's network of ruins and ancient sites.

Celequartz Town- A small, ancient town west of Amberelic City and the Divine Temple. It is believed to be older than even Amberelic City. The Celestial Clan, a group of citizens that practice the ancient ways of Isho life and the guardians of the Divine Temple, resides here. A certain character originated here...

Frostone City- A chilly, snowy town located on the north slope of the snow-capped Mt. Powder, which resides to the north of Amberelic City. The fourth gym is located in Frostone, lead by Icicla, an ice-type trainer.

Tropal Island- A small town on a tropical isle south of Sappharbor City. It is home to the fifth gym and the Super Rank Pokemon Contest Hall. A lush forest with many pokemon and tropical plants resides on the island.

Dentech City- The sister city of Diamopolis, but with a more industrial theme. Dentech City is home to the Teck Corporation, producer of the Pokemon Cummunicator (PokeComm) and other goods. It is also home to the the Ultra Rank Contest Hall and the Poke Studios, where the Isho Radio Station, Isho TV Station, and Movie Production Studios are located. Dentech City hosts the sixth gym, with a leader named Ellie, who uses electric-types.

Igneoridge Town- A town located at the base of Mt Flare, an active volcano, and the tallest mountain on the eastern landmass. It is the gateway to the Mt Flare Trail, which leads to the peak of the volcano, and the seventh gym. The leader their is Frederick, who uses fire-type pokemon.

Pearlshore City- A tropical seaside town located on the southern tip of the eastern landmass. There is no gym there, but it hosts a variety of alternate things such as the Master Rank Pokemon Contest Hall, the Sanctuary Lighthouse (a great training spot), and discover the secret of the "Pearlshore Telecom Company", which is really an outpost for Team Cosmos. The weather there is always sunny and temperate.

Blucoral Town- A small, tropical island town with a close proximity to the vivid Blucoral Reef, a huge ecosystem with many unique pokemon. It is home to the eighth gym and is the gateway to the Isho Pokemon League.

Part 8- The Characters

So far only a handful of characters have been created. Here is a preview:

Max- the male choice for the main character. When he is the rival, he is an energetic boy who can get a little competitive, but will help the main character in some parts of the game.

Emma- the female choice for the main character. When she is the rival, she is a caring girl who tries to help the main character whenever needed. But she can get a little competetive when it comes to battles.

Professor Holly- the leading authority on Pokemon in the game. She offers the main character their first pokemon and tracks the progress of their Pokedex throughout the game. She is an expert on pokemon evolution at the Science Institute in Diamopolis City.

Team Cosmos- the main antagonists of the game. They are bent on creating havoc throughout the land and to try and get control of the legendary Pokemon of the Sun and Moon (depends on the version). Their leader is an evil and mysterious trainer named Mystique.

Mystique- the evil and mysterious leader of Team Cosmos. She is determined to take control of the Solar and/or Lunar Being and use their powers to eclipse the Sun or Moon, and wreak chaos across Isho.

Marina- the leader of the Sappharbor City gym and the first one in the game. She is an expert of water-types.

Aeron- the leader of the Emerwood City gym and the second one. He is an expert of flying-types.

Terrence- the leader of the Amberelic City gym and caretaker of the Amberelic Ruins and the Divine Temple. He is the the third gym leader and uses ground-type pokemon.

Icicla- the leader of the Frostone City gym, the fourth in the Isho League. She is a user of ice-type pokemon.

Ellie- the leader of the Dentech City gym and the sixth one. She is the daughter of Mr. Teck, the president of the Teck Corporation, and is a user of electric-type pokemon.

Frederick- the leader of the Igneoridge Town gym and the seventh leader. He is a scientist of the Isho Science Institute that studies the eruptions of Mt Flare and is an expert with fire-type pokemon.

More leaders and characters are planned for the game.

The Pokemon Solar and Lunar team has released the name for another town: Igneoridge Town. Igneoridge is located at the foot of Mt Flare, an active volcano. It is the second town on the eastern landmass, south of Dentech City. It is the gateway to the volcano, as well as the home of Frederick, a gym leader specializing in Fire type pokemon.

We are also in the process of creating a name for the region, as well as sketches for the characters.

More updates to come!

No, the Marina in Solar and Lunar will not be the same Marina from the anime. Ours is a totally different character.

New Update:

The Pokemon Solar and Lunar team has reviewed several possible names for the region and one has come out on top. The new name of the region will be... Isho!!!

The game is now starting to show a little progress in its beginner form.

3/13/08 UPDATES:

New Types:

Light-type: A new update on this now-familiar type. So far the only converted pokemon will be Bellossom (Grass/Light) and Sunflora (Grass/Light), as well as the Pokemon Solar Version legendary, Solavine (Fire/Light). The light-type will reflect off of heavenly and star-related subjects. More pokemon are expected for this new type.

Wind-type: A suggested addition by mistersmeargle on the Poke Community forums. This new type will form the separation between birds and wind-related pokemon. Existing pokemon in the pokedex that will be converted will be Mantine (Water/Wind) and Chimecho (Psychic/Wind). Also, some moves will be coverted, including Air Cutter, Air Slash, Razor Wind, and Whirlwind. More udpates for this type are expected.

Isho:

The Tropal Rainforest has been coverted to Treeblossom Park, where the Bug-catching contest will be held on certain days.

That is all!

Ok, a new forum has been set-up for the Pokemon Solar and Lunar project. To view it, the link is in my signature. Enjoy!

Also... the name of the Lunar Being has been confirmed: Lunashade. The name comes from the words "lunar" and "shade". And the legendary trio of the game will be the classic Fire, Ice, and Electric trinity, but they will all share the dragon-type attribute. The names and designs have yet to be designed.
