Hi, I'm BallisticBlastoise and I was formerly known as Metamew. Some of you might know me as the leader of the Pokemon Weather fan game and are probably wondering what's going on with it. Well, needless to say I was disappointed that we worked so hard on it only for me to abandon the project. It was even a bigger disappointment to go through my laptop and see all the sprites and game info sitting lonely in a distant unused part of my laptop.

So out of disappointment and not wanting all this hard work to go to waste, I'm determined once again and for a 4th time to revive this project. Our game is now called Pokemon Black Eclipse and the storyline has changed a good bit.
One main reason for changing the game up was we planned to have legendary dragon pokemon (Chroncos and Elyshagon) that control time and space but somehow Nintendo had that idea as well so I decided to scrap that and since I did this destroyed a major part of the Pokemon Weather story. There's more changes to the game but I'll list that later on.

1.8 Demo Info

1.1 Story:
Gohir has long been known for its myths and mysteries.. In this game, you play the role of either Sonny (male hero) or Raven(female hero). Your mom noticed something special about you as you grew up in Pinark Islands. She realized you had a passion for pokemon and loved to collect things. She knew you would be an asset in helping the professor with his research project and beat his rival to become the #1 authority on pokemon in the region.

Your mom gets you to help the professor and he was delighted to finally find someone to help him. He will then offer you a free pokemon(one out of the three starters) but he puts you through a test first. Once you pass this test, you get your starter pokemon.The main characters are unlike Red, Gold, etc because they don't want to be pokemon masters , they just like collect pokemon and enjoy battling for fun. Their desires will take a different turn throughout the story though.

Throughout the story, you will meet and fight alongside Russell. He's a master martial artist and owner of the Fire Fist Dojo on Norcove Island. He was given a rare shiny ball by his grandfather for his birthday. This ball, also known as a Wish Ball, will be stolen from his house at the beginning of game. When you and Russell find out the importance of this ball and the what the thieves plan on using for you, you guys attempt to stop them and their leader Claude who's standing behind the curtain orchestrating everything.

an attempt to stop a rich business man (Claude) from collecting all three wish balls thus summoning Genine and bringing about the mythical Black Eclipse.

What you and Russell don’t know is that there's three wish balls in all and Claude wants to gather them to make a wish. Once gathered, a legendary pokemon named Genine will appear and grant the summoner 1 wish. Myth has it that Genine used to grant more wishes but the legendary fairy pokemon abused this and were cursed by Genine for life. Even after the balls were reduced to 1 wish, people all over the world came to Gohir and continually abused the Wish Balls. Genine finally had enough and scattered the balls throughout various hard to reach places in Gohir and decided to not show up even if all three balls were collected.

Claude the rich business man and avid mythology reader had read all about this but was still determined to have his wish. He learns later on in the story that Genine can't be summoned anymore even with balls but being the cunning businessman he was, he devised a scheme around this obstacle. Based on what he read about the legendary pokemon Kororae(sun diety) and Nulbese(moon diety), he learned that he could summon Genine by making them fight. Making Kororae and Nulbese fight causes a disorder in nature and the dreaded Black Eclipse plagues world. It's been recorded that during the Eclipse, cities in Gohir have been swallowed by the sea, scorched by the sun, amd cursed with eternal darkness. In any case, only Genine has the power to stop both legendaries and put an end to the Eclipse. Claude figures that if he could summon Genine this way and appear to it with the Wish balls collected, that Genine has no choice but to grant him his wish.

Russell recalls hearing a story from his grandfather about the Great Eclipse that happened about 150 years ago and remembers word for word of his grandpa's bone-chilling story. With this in mind, Russell encourages and emphasizes that you guys need to defeat Claude and his team of henchman called Alphas.

You guys have two objectives – gather the wish balls before Claude do and stop his henchmen (the Alphas) from provoking a fight between Kororae (sun diety) and Nulbese (moon diety). Even if all this is just a myth, the people of Gohir don’t want to risk all this destruction on a man and his desire for a wish. You must work with Russell to stop Claude and his Alphas before its too late. The fate of Gohir depends on you…

There appears to be an error, there's a line in the bottom right section of the houses. Apart from that, I've never seen houses like it and originality is a big plus!
