Story (Prologue)
Spoiler:
Long ago, two races were created to inhabit the planet Earth. They were the humans and the Pokemon. They seemed to balance each other out; the humans had ingenuity and innovation, while the Pokemon seemed to channel the forces of the world. They lived in harmony, and eventually made a pact. The race of Pokemon elected a select few to inhabit the realm of the legendaries, and the humans elected a single, noble bloodline to become the master of all. These people were known as the Point Sages.


But, as with all stories, there was a consequence. With the introduction of the beings of light, the shadows were born. The Point Crystal, the source of all power, was in danger. That pact of the two races of light was really formed to protect it, for if it fell, all would fall....There was one particular Point Sage who had a vision of the downfall of the Point Sages. Indeed, after some time, on a inky, windy night, the clouds overhead flashed and crackled. All of the Point Sages were gathered in one spot inevitably awaiting their fate. And, in one great crack and jolt of lighting, all of them were struck down, leaving humanity with no Champions, and without the balance of the light against the shadows, even though the Pokemon kept fighting valiantly, the world slowly faded into darkness.


Time passed, and so did the legend from the mind of everyone everywhere, with the exception of the noble people of the Animus region. Their hearts still believed that among them, the Point Sages would rise again even though the shadows had taken over every aspect of the world.


It's the year 27X. This is where your story begins. Journey across the Animus region meeting the many brave people who reside within. Along your journey, meet new friends, discover the true power of Pokemon, and uncover the last details that will let it all make sense. Why did your father, the legendary Red, disappear four years ago? What are the Shadows doing? What is the giant dark mass forming east of Animus? And, above all, what is your role in all of this? Find out in Pokemon Cobalt!




Map is subject to change

Welcome to the Animus region! Come and explore the four contrasting provinces of Animus, each with their own unique atmosphere. The Arbor province, full of lush vegetation and wildlife. The Relic province, with its ancient secrets and hidden wonders. The Mechan province, with its stunning architecture and awesome technology. And last but not least, the Tide province, with the beautiful sea and extravagant resorts. These four provinces play key roles in your journey. And this isn't even the half of it. Once you've seen all of Animus, your story will continue in a realm containing the unimaginable...

This is an updated version of the first title I made. Just did some minor text editing.

I added a brushed metal finish underneath and reduced the opacity of the black and blue. Personally, I think it looks so much better. What do you think?


Just started messing around cuz I was bored but I think it turned out good. Any opinions?

I like your information thus far, it seems like you have a good backstory planned. I hope you can pull this off in the playthrough story though, because you didn't give us much information on the gameplay itself other than the basics of what every existing pokemon game has given us.

Now, just get to your 15 posts and post up them screenshots! Good luck.

Thanks guys. I have some friends helping me out with the ideas but I'm the only person working on it so it might take some time.

As for the screenshots I need to map out some more places for a larger variety of shots.

Looking for a fakemon artist? I'm looking for a position to be one, I have been a practicing artist for 5 years and still going, I also have several years of spriting experience as well.

However I do want to see more of the game, namely the screenshots and what additional features will be in the game.

He hasn't posted 15 times yet. I'm sure he'll post the screenshots after he has 15 posts.

Interesting game though, the plot sounds very interesting. Hope you manage to complete it.

Wow. The story prologue is very nice. If you need a mapper, I would love to help you out. I apologize for no proof, but my computer is packed up and I may not have it until the end of the month. but THEN I can make you some pretty reasonable maps if you give me a tileset. Patience is always re payed.

That's a part of the mystery. The "X" in 27X is supposed to represent a variable, meaning the people have a rough idea of the century they're in, but the exact year is unknown.

That map needs serious work done to it, it doesn't look appealing to people who see it. You need to add more trees make the map bigger give a better path with alternate options for the player. There also appears to be errors with the rocks, which on that subject you might want to try place them a bit better, it seems odd just seeing them in a such a linear way. Hopefully that will help you.

Thank you for this advice Rai Rai. This was only to prove I can Map on a grid and such and such. This is not going into any game. This being said, the map was only a sketch at that. It took approximately an hour. Real good maps can take much longer than that. The tiles I used also didn't supply all the supplies needed. But I did also make an edited version of it, though all the things I said above still apply (except that it took about 30 mins more). But I will probably not change it beyond this point.

Good job, GoblinKing. Are you part of our team now?
I just have a few comments if these drawings will be the same for the battlesprites. The stage one is amazing although the pose it is in does not really seem like an attack stance. Also, they may need a bit more connection to grass type. I know it's hard, I've suffered from similar things as well being a pensil artist myself, and I'm not trying to be mean. Please don't take this the wrong way, because other than these two tiny things, the evo looks amazing!:D

No worries. Positioning is probably the hardest part of pokemon drawing for me too and probably many others. If it were up to me, I'd position it like this(see attachments or spoiler):
Spoiler:
click here to see pose

Of course, It is a pretty rough draft. It took me approximately a minute (10 seconds to think of the pose, 50 to draw). Feel free to use and build on it. Don't hesitate to deny my offer. No hard feelings.
