Features:

150-170 Pokemon in the pokedex at first. Depending on how the game goes, I might take some out, or add some. Please note that these are NOT Fakemon

Everything is in 3d!

Battle System: The Battle system is going to be very different. The protagonist is going to have a weapon (sword, bow, etc.) that they fight with, and then his pokemon will help him fight. Also, it will be kind of like pokemon ranger where pokemon can help you complete puzzles (burn things down that are in your way etc.), but they won't be the exact same thing as Pkmn ranger. The battles will be in real time. Although this is untrue in the Tropical Zone, in other zones, you will meet trainers with weapons who will offer to spar with you.

10 zones! There will be ten zones that the player will be able to travel through. For more info about the zones, look below.

Starter Pokemon: For now, it's a Pikachu. Other pokemon will be in the game, but you will really only own your pikachu

More features are on their way!

Zones:
Spoiler:

1) The Tropical Zone
2) The Mountain Zone
3) The Aquatic Zone
4) The Desert Zone
5) The Underground Zone
6) The Metropolitan Zone
7) The Future Zone
8) The Past Zone
9) The Charred Zone
10) The ??? Zone

Pictures and descriptions are on their way. The ??? zone is called ??? because the contents of the zone are supposed to be kept a secret.


Story:
Spoiler:

You are a boy who lives in the Tropical Zone. The Tropical Zone is a peaceful zone where people make a living by fishing, hunting, etc. As well as the zone being inhabited by all sorts of animals. They are also inhabited by pokemon. There are no trainers in the meadow zone, but the people live in harmony with pokemon. You have a best friend named Nathan. Although he is your best friend, you are insanely competitive, but at the end of the day, it's all good fun. One day, two Men and one Woman come to the meadow zone. They are carrying these things that you find out are Pokeballs, used to Capture pokemon. The three visitors come to your village and inform the tribal leader that they will have to take the pokemon from the Tropical Zone to participate in the Grand Metrox, an event that takes place in the Metro Zone. Almost everyone in the village is outraged about this and attempt to stop the three people, but they pull out these silver mechanical weapons that make a thundering sound. They use this thunder to incapacitate five of the villagers. They then take the villagers away. Minutes later, planes come out of the sky and capture all of the pokemon on the island. The villagers begin to attack the capturers of the pokemon and in all of the confusion, the woman drops a pokeball. They leave, leaving the village in a ruined state because of the battle. You take the pokeball and free the pokemon who is inside it: a pikachu.
It quickly becomes apparent that the tropical zone cannot thrive without pokemon. Without beedrils and taillows to pollinate flowers, the plants begin to die. Without the loyal Growlithes and Arcanines to protect them, the village is assaulted by sea monsters and land predators. Soon, you, because you are the only one who seems to be able to connect with a pokemon on a high level, are chosen to find the pokemon's captors and bring the pokemon back to the Tropical Zone. Angered that he wasn't chosen, Nathan takes a silver weapon that the attackers of the Tropical Zone had dropped, and leaves, promising to wreak revenge on you. You are given a sword to fight enemies with, and leave. Because you have no knowledge of any other zones, you assume that the pokemon captors are somewhere on the island. You are right.

Only read this if you want to have some of the story spoiled
Spoiler:

You find some of the pokemon captors hiding out with their leader on the faraway edge of the island. You fight your way through the captors, but then the woman escapes through a portal made by her Alakazam. Intruiged, you jump through the portal. It then shows a cutscene with Nathan going through the portal too. You arrive in the Mountain Zone. The lady is nowhere to be found, but you are found by some dwarves and are taken to the camp, where you learn about the Grand Metrox. You also learn about why the Grand Metrox takes place every 50 years. Finally, you also learn about an Orb that was created 50 years ago, and why it is the least known about object in the world. And why anyone, ANYONE, even against their own will, would kill to obtain it. Even you.

Note: I'm not too keen on telling you guys what the Grand Metrox is, or what the Orb is, but if you really want to know, I can post it here.



Progress:
Spoiler:

Story: {|||||.....} (I have the rough draft)
World: {|........} (This is just for mapping. I have one zone mapped out)
Battle System {..........} (haven't started scripting that yet}
Third Person Scripts: {|||.......} (I'm in the process of coding that}
3d Pokemon {..........} (I'm starting that after I get the third person done)
Sprites {..........} (I'm starting this after I finish third person as well.)
Interface {..........} (Another thing on my to-do list)

Overall Progress: 10%


Team:
Just me. If you are skilled in Blender or any 3d modeling program and want to help sprite, just PM me!

Screenshots:
Spoiler:



I'm still working on underwater rendering!
A nice overview of the Tropical Zone!



Credits:
Just me I guess, because this is a solo project!

Well, tell me what you think!

Hey, if it gets done, who cares. Playing a 3D pokemon game like this would be awesome.

The are. I was showing them to show you what the program was capable of. Once my laptop is fixed, I will show you the pictures of my world that I created. I can also show you some of the models I've created on blender. Those pictures are from a sort of starterkit that came with unity. They are the equivilent to the small town that came with poccil's kit. It just tells you how to work the program.

*UPDATE*
Here are the blueprints for one of the underwater monsters I am making. They were made in blender and I know that they are not perfect. They are just for giving me an idea of what the monster will look like.

Spoiler:






So what do you guys think?

**Update**

I've re-written the story and edited the first post. I will add in descriptions on the zones after I finalize them. If anyone has any suggestions for a zone, I will might add it and if I do, I will credit you.

Will you have to start and keep Pikachu, you can't release it? It would be nice to have a selection, like:


Pidove, Pikachu, or Eevee, around the lines of that.

Anyway, bravo! I look foward to this!

Thanks to everybody for the compliments and advice. @Hooh, I will eventually add other choices. It will be something like this:
You see a pokeball and open it. The pokemon that comes out looks like one you've seen before? What is it?
1) Pikachu
2) Eevee
3) Pawniard

I like this, except for one thing:
Fighting with a weapon doesn't sound really Pokémon-ish

I've been thinking that too, but I don't really want my game to be like a regular pokemon game where the pokemon does all the fighting. I would rather the main character does the main portion of the fighting and then the pokemon helps. If you have any ideas for a system where that would work, pm me and you will be credited if I like it.

Anyway, I've been thinking about trying a different 3d engine because Unity isn't as game friendly as I had hoped. I have found two other gaming engines that I can use:
Maker3d:
http://maker3d.tk/

Platinum Arts Sandbox:
http://sandboxgamemaker.com/

I am leaning toward Platinum Arts Sandbox but Maker3d has a battle system implemented so I can modify this one so it can meet my needs. The only thing that is holding me back is that it is very new and in the beta stages so there are a lot of bugs. I'll download both of them and see which one is best.

Anyway, how is my story? Is it too generic or is it good?
