Hey, brokenxnote here [optimisticxpessimist on deviantArt] with my game that I've been working on for a few months. After the first few months, the game had a terrible accident [just as I said "Oh, I'd better make a backup now, while I'm thinking about it, before something bad happens."] and I had to start all over without any of the maps or events I'd done already. But I've started again, and progress is being made. So let's get this started, shall we?



Characters:
-Solomon and Lunara: Hero and Rival, Twin brother and sister
-Terrance: Stay at home dad, ex-Contest Coordinator
-Stella: mom, ex-Gym Leader, current member of the Elite 4
-Professor: Gary Oak

-------------

Story:
You and your sibling have both finished your Pokemon trainer classes, but have been waiting for the right time to go out and start your journey. You, on one hand, don't want to jump into anything you aren't prepared for. Your sibling, on the other hand, doesn't want an unfair advantage in your rivalry to see who can become a Pokemon Master first. You both want the victor to be decided fairly and absolutely. You've been considering talking the situation over with your sibling; that maybe it's finally time to go out and get started. You decide to go on a walk, to clear your head and really think about whether you're ready or not. But on your way out of town, you run into Gary Oak, your towns Professor, trying to fight against two dark and menacing trainers. You run to help, not sure of what you can do, but determined to save the cornered Professor somehow. But from behind, another trainer attacks, forcing you into the same corner as Oak. Now you both are side by side and cornered. Oak pulls three Pokeballs out of his pocket and holds them out to you. "Heh, this isn't exactly how I thought I'd be giving you this, kid, but here, pick one. Looks like you're gonna need it..."

As you take a Pokeball, you notice your sibling over one of your attackers' shoulder. You try to tell them to run, but they are seen before they can escape, and yet another attacker appears, backing them into your corner as well. "Thanks for joinin' the party," Oak tells your sibling, holding the remaining two Pokeballs out to them. "You pick one too. If you two think you can handle those goons over there, I'll take care of these two myself," he says with confidence, and you and your sibling nod silently in agreement. Once you have both finished your battles, you look up to see that Oak has defeated both of his "goons," and they, along with those of you and your sibling, scatter and escape.

Oak compliments both of you on your battling. "I guess you two came out to start your journey then?" he asks you both. "Looks like you're both more than ready to me." You and your sibling look each other in the eye, and in a moment of either silent communication, or twin telepathy, both turn back to Oak, smiling, with a fiery determination in your eyes. "Yup."

Today is the day. You are finally ready to begin your Pokemon journey. You and your twin sibling both seek to be the first to reach the top: The Elite 4. Other trainers have tried; some have failed, some have succeeded. But this journey isn't as simple for you. It is a journey of pride, of tradition, to prove yourselves...
You seek to reach this goal to, in turn, reach your hero, your mother, Stella, ex Gym Leader and current Elite 4 Member. She left home long ago, when you and your sibling were very young, after being nominated to join the Elite 4. And now has come the time for you to prove yourself to her. To show how much you've improved and grown. To show that you, her child, have what it takes to follow in her footsteps and become a Pokemon Master.

But there are more than just Pokemon waiting for you on your journey. On your way, you will face Team Eclipse, an evil organization looking to not only control the world, but every aspect of nature itself. They seek to locate and gain access to the dens of the Nekoseimei [name pending], the group of legendary Pokemon believed to watch over every aspect of nature, and keep them in balance and working order. Should Team Eclipse gain control of one of these Pokemon, they would hold the world at arm's length. Should they control them all, the world may very well end as we know it. Your mother has caught wind of their plans and gone out to try and stop them, and it seems that you, your father, and your sibling may need to join her in her fight, with or without her approval. Will you be able to convince your mother that you can fight this battle along side her? And more importantly, will your family, with the love of Pokemon running through their genes, be able to put an end to the madness Team Eclipse seeks to unleash? There's only one way to find out...

-------------

Story Part 2 [Warning: SPOILERS. Only read this if you plan on giving your critique...or if you're just that curious, I guess you can read it then too.] I thought it was clearer that this was later in the game. My bad. But this is after the 8th Gym/Elite 4. I had mentioned that in my original version of this story, but it didn't save correctly the first time and I lost it and had to retype it. So there may be other things missing too. But this part of the story takes place much later in the game. Don't worry, the evil Teams aren't THAT cocky to just announce their plans at the beginning of the game lmao. They actually are revealed over time, not all at once like it seems. Once again, my bad haha.:

Spoiler:
You stand and stare in awe. There, right before your eyes, stands Leaero, staring directly into those eyes that stare at him. The look in his eye...something about it tells you that all isn't well. He turns away from you and flies off, leaving you standing there, bewildered. Just then, you recieve a phone call from Oak.

"Come to the lab. Now," he says, and hangs up abruptly. There is a disturbed, tone in his voice, yet there is an underlying rage in it as well. You rush back home to his lab to see what could be distressing him so much.

Outside of his lab, you run into your sibling, who he apparently called as well. You both walk in, to see the TV turned to what appears to be the news. There on the screen sit 3 men at a table. The screen is oddly fuzzy, but you can just make out their images. One of them sits in a dark suit and has a demeaning, smug look in his eye. The next has icy blue hair with a cold stare to match it, and wears a white vest. Next to him is a face you can't help but recognize: Neo, the leader of Team Eclipse. You turn to your sibling with a look of confusion and worry, only to end up staring at the exact same expression, something that seems to happen more often between you than any other twins you know of. You turn back, watching the screen intently, just as Neo begins to speak.

"Good evening ladies and gentleman," he begins, with his usual tone of sick humor. "For those who don't already know, I am Neo, leader of Team Eclipse. Pleased to make your acquaintance. I'd like to introduce you to a few new friends of mine..."

"Thank you, Neo," the man in the dark suit opens. "You see, Neo and Team Eclipse here have quite an...interesting plan. Instead of trying to take control of the world through brute force, as I did at one time, they seek to control the very aspects of human survival. The air, the water, electricity, fire. All of it. And I, Giovanni, and Team Rocket of course, along with our other comrades, Cyrus and Team Galactic, have taken interest in this plan. Therefore, we are here to announce the merging and affiliation of Teams Rocket, Galactic, and Eclipse."

"With the combined funding and support from Giovanni and I," Cyrus picks up from where Giovanni left off, "and the oversight of all three of us, we see little room for failure. Therefore, we would like to inform the world that, albeit cliche, resistance is futile. We shall take hold of the world in our iron fists, and all who will not follow us will not progress. We will decide the laws, the laws of both man and nature, and no one shall stand against us."

"So you see, ladies and gentlemen," Neo concludes, "we will soon hold all of your fates in our hands. The power to rule the world is just breaths away, and we plan to breathe deep. We hope you have a good night, with love, The New Leaders of Your World. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

And with the sadistic laugh of Neo, the broadcast goes back to its normal programming, where the newscasters sit in as much awe in confusion as you did.

"Seems they hijacked the frequency of every radio and TV in the world just to send that little message," Oak says, just having noticed you and your sibling a little before the end of the broadcast, "yet no one seems to be able to figure out where it was sent from. But that's the least of our worries. I've fought against Giovanni and Team Rocket before, and I know those who've fought against Cyrus and Galactic. And I'm sure you haven't forgotten what Neo and Team Eclipse are like so quickly. If they team up, we've got a serious problem on our hands. I'm sure your mom, dad and any of those who've fought any of these jerks before saw that broadcast, so you can bet they'll be on-board to help stop this. But we need all the help we can get. So, are you two up for a little added bonus to your Pokemon journey?"

You and your sibling both nod, the same confident smirk forming on each of your faces.

"How did I know you would be?" Oak says, with a laugh.




-As always, a whole new region to explore.
-Play as one of two twins, face the other as your rival. A new definition of sibling rivalry.
-New Pokemon [Fakemon] to see, capture and train.
-Appearances from, and battles with, some of your favorite Pokemon characters.
-New way to carry Pokemon [Should be fully possible to add in, once I get a scripter, and i just thought of it today. Although it's not like a huge innovation, I'm still pretty exicted about it to be honest. More details to come.]
-Other feature ideas will be revealed when I know for sure that they can be done, and when i can either get a scripter for my team, or learn scripting myself.





I have quite a few areas mapped, but due to a problem in the Pokemon Essentials script that I haven't been able to fix or get help fixing yet, I can't open the Test Play, and therefore can't get in-game screenshots. Screens will be posted once the issue is solved. As said above, "I'm workin' on it..." haha.

I like the story so far. It's got a certain flair to it. Gary Oak being the professor is something I approve of, even if the introduction is somewhat similar to RSE. (Only they are trainers and not Pokemon.) Still, it's evident you put a lot of thought into it.

I'll keep my eye on your posts.

The only thing that bothers me, or irks me really, is the team. Like most teams on here, I feel it is just uninspired or shoved into the story because "all Pokemon games have them". Honestly, they are just Team Rocket / Galactic / Magma / Aqua with a different name and tweaked goals. Also; the Pokemon controlling every aspect of nature? What exactly does that encompass? Because, most legendaries already fit that role. Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza cover the Water, Earth, and Skies respectively. Lugia controls currents. Ho-Oh controls fire and rebirth. (Loosely) While Shaymin controls flowers. I think you see where I'm going.

It's not ripping on you so much as wanting to see something unique and different in your story. The basis of it is already solid, and I enjoyed it, so I'd like to see that continue throughout the rest of the game.

-Thank you :D I like having Gary be the Professor too. It's something that I thought Nintendo would've done by now, considering the anime storyline, but I guess not. Oh well, leaves it for me to use haha.

-The team will actually have a deeper story than in official games. Expect them to be more involved in the actual storyline than it seems. I just don't want to give away too much of the story, or else what will be left to surprise the players of the game? ;] haha

-The legendaries are actually an old idea, and I did think of Groundon and Kyogre while writing the story for my thread. However, I do have ideas as to how to avoid continuity issues with the canon of the official story, so expect that in a future update. I'm working on it in Notepad right now actually.

Hey everyone. Time for an update? Sure, why not haha.
I'll try to update you guys whenever I make significant progress in either ideas, maps, or designs. Also, whenever new team members are added.

Updates for now:
-Seeing as I cant get any screens for you guys, the least I can do is show some maps right? So expect those to be updated, most likely on Saturday.

-A few new feature ideas that I'm working on. I'm VERY sure that they're all possible so far, and I hope and expect that you guys'll like 'em [or at least some of them haha.

-Good news on one front of progress: I'm done designing Badges. I'll be adding those as well.

-If you're wondering why I'm telling you that I have updates, instead of actually showing you, it's because my summer vacation doesn't start for two weeks, so I'm still kind of busy. But instead of letting the thread idle for weeks, I want to keep you guys updated on what I'm doing in my procrastination time. Once summer is started, expect updates a little more often, and expect them to be a little more telling than "I have a bunch of things to show you guys but I'm not gonna actually show you any of them cuz I don't have time...TEEHEE ." I haven't uploaded any images about the game here or to deviantart, but expect that to change soon enough, with updates going up on both sites. There are a few Fakemon designs on my deviantart account, so if you wanna see 'em, just go here: http://optimisticxpessimist.deviantart.com and look through my gallery to see my designs [some of them are kind of old and HAVE been revamped, but as I said, no time to upload because I'm a stickler for uploading when I have time to do things exactly right and leave out as little as possible. Also, I'm sans scanner, so using a camera phone to get the pics from paper to Photoshop is a bit frustrating too haha.]

That's about it for now. Can't wait to let you guys see the ideas I've got going. And don't forget, if you're a scripter or know a scripter who's currently free and will be able to help out with the project, don't hesitate to PM me and/or send them my way. Definitely gonna need the help in that area, especially now that I've got these new item and iPoke ideas...wait did I say iPoke? [like many other designers seem to have said lol]. Well ain't that just a little spoiler. But don't worry about the repition of the iPoke. I've got new app ideas that haven't been done yet. But until I can get the time to upload, I suppose you guys will just have to go off of what I said in this post. Later :].

Good news again: I've got time to do some updating today, so you guys won't have to wait to see EVERY idea/drawing/concept I've got in the works.

Because I want that last post listing updates to be separate from the actual updates themselves, I'll post the updates in a second post:

-First off, the badges are now complete:

Spoiler:


[Read from left to right:]

Badge Name: Conduction Badge
City: Meteora City
Gym Leader: Maggie
Gym Type: Steel/Electric

Badge Name: Trap Badge
City: Venuvita Grove
Gym Leader: Florana
Gym Type: Grass/Bug

Badge Name: Shore Badge
City: Bidip Town
Gym Leader: Ryo
Gym Type: Water/Ground

Badge Name: Solid Badge
City: Comet Cave
Gym Leader: Krizsa
Gym Type: Ice/Rock

Badge Name: Peril Badge
City: Lunavilla
Gym Leader: Duncan
Gym Type: Dark/Poison

Badge Name: Sky Badge
City: Stafall Village
Gym Leader: Sora
Gym Type: Flying/Dragon

Badge Name: Mindseye Badge
City: Gala City
Gym Leader: Specter
Gym Type: Ghost/Psychic

Badge Name: Spirit Badge
City: Solaclipse Peak
Gym Leader: Blake
Gym Type: Fire/Fighting



I personally really like how they're designed :D *proud* haha.

-Secondly, I had second thoughts about revealing the app ideas that I had. Not that I want to be selfish and not share my ideas, but I also don't want said ideas to be revealed where they can be potentially taken and used before my own game is even beta released. But I'll release the ideas for now, and hope that no one comes along and steals any of the more unique ideas:

Spoiler:

iPoke Apps:
-Pokedex
-PC Check: No withdrawal feature; stat checking only
-DayCam: app from Daycare, similar to Poketch feature. Check up on Pokemon left in Daycare from wherever you may be.
-Email checking: recieve eMail from certain trainers; similar to use of the cell phone feature in the GSC games
-Phone: for those more old fashioned, non-email using contacts. call them in certain areas for tips on what to do in certain situations, ie explaining terrain, general description of types of Pokemon found there, secrets that may lie about
-Ability Checker: LVL up, TM, and Move Tutor Move checker for current party Pokemon.
-VS Seeker: gives time until ready for next battle
-Games [idea pending. Maybe I'll have it, maybe not. If added to the game, it'll be one of the very last apps added, seeing as it's not very impotant at all. just an idea]
-Camera Phone: different background for each area you can walk through. take pic of one of your Pokemon, you and one of your Pokemon, just you, or just the background. pics can be set as background for iPoke (possibly?)
-Lantern: in place of STOOPID Flash =_= lol
-Fame Checker: check W-L for both battles and contests. also check ribbons won and ribbons still left to win, as well as W-L's for specific battletower-like contests


-Next, here's some maps. Any RSE-FRLG mixup's will be fixed in time, but please point them out if you see them because I have a hard time telling the difference when it comes to certain tiles:
Spoiler:


Solomon's Room [Where you start if you decide to be a boy]



Lunara's Room [Where you start if you decide to be a girl]



Oriobell Forest:
[Up: Meteora City; Left: Venuvita Grove; Right: Bidip Town; Down: Norstar Town (Your Home Town). Yes, I've already fixed the exits to not be blocked by trees . And only Meteora and Norstar are accessible on your first run through Oriobell.]



Bidip Town:



Bidip Gym [Had some technical difficulties with the program used to capture my map images. That'll be fixed later. Some tiles that are actually specific for this gym need to be made anyway]:





There are some other maps, but they aren't being released for a few different reasons. Some are just routes, Pokecenters, and Marts. Others have something I want to edit out or in. Things like that. You'll see 'em in due time haha.


That's it for now. See ya next update.

Oh, I know you. Sort of. You run that fakemon club on dA I joined a while ago.

The screenshots look pretty decent for this early point in development, but can I suggest resizing them before posting them? They stretch the screen and it's hard for viewers to take everything in at once.

You've got some pretty cool fakemon overall; I'm looking forward to seeing what'll be in this game specifically.

Thanks for your input, and thanks for telling me about the screenshot size issue too. My laptop has a pretty large sized screen so I didn't even realize it. I'll get around to fixing it eventually.

---

Anyway, I figured I'd let those who are following this thread know what I've been doing, as I said in my previous update.

As for what I'm currently working on, I'm mostly focusing on the Pokedex listing, the concept art and the plot. Seeing as i have Fakemon, I want to be sure to know the Dex entry for each, and to have a decent concept of their appearances and abilities. Also, i want to have a decent amount of official Pokemon in there too, so I have to focus on getting the Dex balanced in that area and decide which official Pokemon to include in this game. Any suggestions on HOW to decide which official Pokemon to include [not suggestions on WHAT to include] would be appreciated, although I have made sure to include a few staple Pokemon along with the previous forms of my own Fakemon and anything those previous forms can evolve into.

As for the plot, the only part I really need to add, as opposed to editing, is the after-math plot, or more specifically put: the plot for the one legendary left to catch once you've dealt with Team Eclipse and the Nekoseimei. I've got that part of the plot pretty much written in my head, but I don't want to spoil it by just laying it out here. However, I'll just give you the vague hint that this last legendary sidequest is similar to a certain quest found in Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness. I don't know if any of you will actually guess which quest I'm referring to, but at least I gave you a hint ;P.

In terms of concept art, I've got the main two heroes designed, and I've got some generator-made designs of the Gym Leaders and E4, but I don't want to post those until I draw them myself. Of course, if you guys actually want to see those rough drafts, I'd be glad to post them. Also, I'm working on concept art of that "Innovation to carrying Pokemon" that I mentioned earlier. I'm not sure how well it'll be accepted, but I'm personally a fan of the idea. I'll give a bit more detail about it once i get the art for it done.

Finally, but certainly not least, I DESPERATELY need a scripter who knows their way around RMXP and Poccil's Starter Kit. The game won't make any progress without me being able to playtest it for errors, or without anyone to program in the features. So if you know of any scripters who could possibly help, let me know so I can contact them.

A quick question for those who are keeping their eye on this thread:

Due to the Pokemon limitations of having one region, I plan on having every official region eventually accessible as part of the storyline [I didn't want to add the extra regions just for the sake of having every Pokemon in the game, so I adjusted the plot to fit them all in. It actually makes a lot more sense now with the adjustment]. But what I wonder is, should I include a pixel-adapted version of Orre in it? I'd need custom sprites, but it'd be interesting to have Orre in the game. Also, it'd add just a little to the storyline, but it'd be pretty much optional. If I even added it at all, I'd add it at the very end of production of the game, when it was already off the ground. So if you could, vote in the poll on whether or not you think I should bother including Orre.


ignore the poll, i changed my mind after trying to actually make Orre work. I don;t like it anymore than I did at first. anyone know how to remove a poll? o_o

Guys, seriously, I made an update post RIGHT ABOVE where you posted your questions about why I won't be doing Orre. Of course, my mind COULD change toward the end of the project, when I have a spriter and we can just add extra features. A Special Edition perhaps. But until then, which will be much later, refer to the update post in which I said: I will not be doing Orre, as of now. It's too hard to translate the 3D graphics into the format of the handheld games. That's what I put the update there for: for you guys to read it. :\

Anyway, in other news, I'm making REALLY good progress on re-spriting the other regions. I'm working on Hoenn at the moment. I'd post maps in an update, but that'd be pretty redundant since they're just the same maps you've seen in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, except with FRLG graphics. I'll let you guys know when I've finished work on that, because that'll be when I go back to mapping Gala Region. I needed a break from mapping the new region because I could feel myself getting burnt out on it.

By the way, to those of you who have posted here, thanks for all the support so far guys, really. It means a lot. I know there's not a lot to be seen, in terms of screenshots and all. Personally, a thread without those is one of my small pet peeves. But as soon as I can figure out what's wrong and get some eventing done one way or another, you'll be seeing those screens. Thanks for supporting when there's not much to support yet. I can only hope and try my best to not let that support go to waste.

Bumping the thread for the progress bars being added to the fist post now. Made them at the same time as all of the headers but didn't add them 'cuz I hadn't made enough progress, in my opinion.

EDIT: Also added part 2 to the story. I advise that you only read it if you're critiquing my storyline, otherwise you'll get a big storyline spoiler for no reason at all.

First off that Is a nice plot I really like it. Gray as Prof. Is pretty awsome aswell! The Badges Look simply AMAZING wish I knew how to those myself. I'm gonna take a look at the fakemon in a min. The maps arent too great and could be greatly improved. I know you can do it though. Once you get the mapping down this will be a pretty great game. I'll post more later!

Thanks, glad you like it :D.

Yeah, I'm not too great at mapping. Total beginner. Right now I'm remapping those other regions, so I'm getting a bit of practice from that. And if you have badge ideas in mind, I could make em if you want. Just need the Gym descriptions, and if the badges have names already it'd help.

I like this idea so far! The only thing(s) I have issue with are this:

-the introduction of the team(s) in your first post seems a little juvial...and illogical, maube they should wait until they have some power (aka later in the game) before they announce their plans to everyone? Or maybe they should stay under a Cover Identity with a more..misleading speech to start out with? (Aka, they have a FigureHead on the TV news annouceing that <coverupcompany> will be working on a "New and Glorious future" with the help of "Partners from other Regions" to work for the "good of all humanity") and the Prof. says "Mayybe you should keep ypur eye on these guys too...ok?"....

2: the mapping of the towns seems very...sparce and a lot of extra/ un-needed/empy space, but thats easily fixable.

anyways just some hints xD feel free to ignore

The plot seems kind of cliche BADGUYSOHNO, I think you should definitely put more thought into it. Everyone knows that once the bad guys announce their unbeatable plan, they're going to fail. I mean come on, its pretty obvious. Maybe the protagonist discovers the amalgamation in his quest. I don't think his adventure should be initiated by this.

Feel free to follow (or not) my advice

K, yeah I said in an earlier post I'm working on the mapping. Thanks for the more specific advice. I was wondering how I could go about improving 'em.

And thanks for the critique on the story, but actually Part 2 of the story IS later through the game. It's not until after either the 8th Gym or Elite 4, so everyone would already know about those Teams existence anyway, through all of their other activities [and Team Rocket and Galactic would obviously be known already]. I was planning to have the news having broadcasts about the other regions during your journey, talking about the other regions Teams already being discovered as well. There's no use for secrecy because by this point they've all been discovered already. It's just a matter of coming together [and this is after some suspicious activity involving the hero seeing members of different Teams being seen together]. However, the "signal can't be traced" part is supposed to point out that they're hidden quite well, not making it any easier to actually find them at all. It's sort of like Team Rocket's radio announcement. I could still change it if you guys think it'd be better, but I just wanted to point those things out first, to make sure the critique is totally informed, I guess you could say.

So yeah, again, tomatoman too. The quest isn't initiated with this. Part 2 is actually the end of the Gala Region storyline and the transition to the other regions. But I don't know, if you guys still think I should change it, I could try and make some tweaks to the story. But only if the problem isn't solved by Part 2 being technically the end, not the beginning.

Thanks again for the critique. I'll keep it in mind.

Good News: I've fixed the sizes for most of the maps in Ga;a region, by which I mean they aren't so overly spacious anymore.

Better News: Whatever was wrong with the game file is somehow fixed now, so the Playtest is working again.

The Bad News: Some new error popped up, and now I can't get out of the first town =_=. Also, I still need a scripter lol. Note to all reading and planning on making a game: the team recruitment thread isn't very plentiful on scripters, just sayin' ;;;.

I'll try and get this new error fixed, and once I get SOMETHING significant evented, I'll get some screenshots up. Can't say exactly when that'll be, but I AM actually working here, even though I haven't updated much recently, it's only because I'm trying to figure out these errors that keep coming up.

You and me both, dude haha. Although, mapping is easy enough considering I have a reference for every region but my own, so that's one major part of the problem taken care of by Nintendo haha. And I actually have a good idea of what I want to do with most towns of my region too, so everything should go pretty well with the mapping there. Basically, my ONLY worry for the project, which I'm sure I've pointed out/mentioned enough times to have a nickname related to it eventually, is finding a scripter. I've written a storyline that's gotten decent reviews from those who critiqued it, I design Fakemon and am only 3 short of a full list of 100 [counting Eeveelutions; might ditch 'em, might keep 'em. We'll see haha], I'm practicing my mapping and starting to learn a bit from the critique I've gotten, hell, I've even thought of some new concepts that I KNOW are possible with RMXP/RGSS/Ruby/"whichever you prefer" scripting. The only problem is that no matter how many times I look through the tutorials and all, my mind doesn't seem to be wired to grasp the actual practice of the scripting instead of just the possibilities of it. *sigh* Pretty frustrating, to be honest. If only we had a more specific Team Recruitment system, it might be easier...or maybe if we just actually had more scripters available here haha. Let's see what's happening in some of these abandoned projects around here...>u> LOL.
