Any Ideas?
Actually, in the anime Pokemon do have levels, try watching episode 9, season 1.

You must be thinking of a different episode to me :D in this one there at the trainer school and the kid keeps raving on about what moves pidgey learns at what levels and when it evolves.

Thanks for pointing that out, I never realised there were references to levels in the anime.
It's not going to change the concepts for this game though, as even if there are levels in the anime then they're not visible anyways.



According to this screenshot, I've left my Bulbasaur and Metapod training in different dojos. (Different dojos = different stat bonuses). Looks like its going to take a while before Bulbasaur completes his Speed Training though, .
[The stronger the Pokemon in whichever stat you're training it, the longer it takes to complete it's workout)

VERY nice =D I love the laptop system and the Pokémon selection screen.<3 I would however include the names of the Pokémon...

About the hero speaking or not... Well I think you can have better dialogues if you let the hero reply...

For the Hero speaking, I could see something like they use in the game, Knights of the Old Republic, being cool.

Well, I was always annoyed that my character was mute. Especially in Mystery Dungeon. What kind of person/Pokemon communicate by scratching the ground with their feet? I would like it if the main character could talk.

Just noticed the status in the screenshot last posted.
Can you bring them to a Pokécenter to fully heal instantly or do you have to leave them off?
Nice feature adding that in by the way. It will be an interesting factor to remember while playing the game.

Any Pokemon you want healed, you leave at a Pokecentre, and the healing won't be instant. If it's only HP then generally it won't take very long. But other things such as injuries/illness can take a while.

It may seem like a put-off, having to wait, but when you consider the fact that Trainer Battles are refuseable (and thus you don't have to go wading through a small army of them on route to the next town) then its not such a nuisance.

The previous two screenshots have been showing the Live Update part of the Laptop. This allows you to check on the pokemon you've left in Dojos and Pokecentres, and see a rough idea of how long it'll take until they've finished their training/are fully healed.

That's what the green bars represent in the last screenshot. It's going to take quite a while for Pidgey's wing to heal.

It also tells you in which Pokecentre/Dojo you've left the Pokemon. Again, this may seem like a nuisance if you left your Pikachu all the way back in the first Pokecentre you came across, but you also have to take into account that you can Fly from the beginning of the game - well as soon as you catch a Pokemon capable of carrying you anyways.

i like the idea that the hero can talk and choose his own path - it makes the game very interesting. i hate the way that your path is set, its just not exciting. Keep up the good work and i hope to see a demo soon!

btw, you should put updates on your progress on the main post
EDIT- Whoops didnt see it at the botom lol

That's another vote for talking then.
In regards to a demo, that's still a way off yet, but I'll probably be uploading a video soon, to break up the monotomy of screenshots.

To make the game MORE unique than it already is, will you have certain characters (based on popularity) be able to travel with you, or have a girlfriend(XD what the hell am I saying). I think you could add somethings along those lines Oh and I think the hero should speak

I can't say too much on this as I don't want to spoil the storyline.
Spoiler:
While you don't exactly get a girlfriend (it's not really a road I want to explore in this game), you will become close friends with someone who is a girl. In fact it's integral to one of the storylines.

I'm not saying anything on this at the moment. Too spoiler-ish.

I have a question though it might be dubbed spoiler-ish. So I'll ask it anyway, how will your pokemon evolve if there is no lvl system? Is it when the learn a certain attack?

lol... no its not your mom. And I just meant not-girlfriend as in no making-out, no dates, etc, just close friends.

Evolution will happen in many different ways, and I'd like for it to be mostly up to the player to work out, but some of the contributing factors could be:
  • Age of the Pokemon
  • The Pokemon's Stats
  • The Pokemon's Personality
  • How they are treated
  • How they are trained
Etc.

I'll probably include a guide with the release for anyone who wants to find out the easy way.

Yeah, I mean you can always try to force it to evolve, and you may succeed, but the long-term consequences will most of the time far outweigh the gain.

I think he's saying that you might not learn their ultimate moves or that they will disobey you...i think.
