Haha, at this time, all fakemon that are created by me will be uncatchable until after the Pokémon League, at least... Not too sure what I will do with them at the moment, may even open a new region, I have a lot written down, so many ideas are being played around in my head, just going to work out which I see would be the best option for the game.

I can't put an exact date to, but my guess would be, around August - September, time... Could be during, before or after, the game is pretty much done, just working out some kinks... A video will be released before the game, so when a video appears on this thread, expect the game download release shortly after.

A few things will happen when the release of the game is out:

  • The thread layout will change.
  • An encounter guide will be added for your convenience. (Commons and Uncommons only, all new entries will be found by you.)
  • Information on major changes, item whereabouts, Pokémon rumours plus more.
  • Updates and Upgrades will happen constantly during your game-play.
The differences between updates and upgrades.
  1. Updates >> Updates are global, any player with the game will have updates, a new area, new encounters, new NPC arrivals... The list is endless.
  2. Upgrades >> Upgrades however, these will allow extra bonuses to a player, extra EXP, better money receivals, some rares being made easier to find, level bonuses, stat bonuses, plus much more, but, for a limited time.
  • A form styled thing will be added to the thread also, which every player who downloads the game will NEED to fill out, this will consist of a few things;
  1. Forum name
  2. In game name
  3. In game Trainer ID
  4. In game Gender
  5. In game Age
Each will need to be filled out correctly for ensurence of the bonuses, if any of these are wrong, you will miss out... If you fail to fill this out, again, you will miss out... So it would be in your best interest to fill this out, don't you think?!
Any rude or absurd names will result in bonuses being stripped.
Names recommended are your forum ID's. (just a recommendation, you don't have to it saves choosing a rude name)


More info may need to be filled out, but this is the d-low of what you will need to send me... Think of this as your official trainer card for Homeward Bound™.

There has clearly been a lot of planning and thought put into this game, so it looks very promising and positive. I'm hoping you do expand further into the Kanto region and give it some new areas and different events to spice the game up a lot more. I do think you need to revise some of your tiles because a lot of them do not match in terms of palettes and there are some very obvious tile errors in the first post (whether you've fixed these is beyond me). I think you should get a colour scheme going and have all tiles stick to that instead of this very inconsistent look. That said, good luck in the completion of the project and I hope all these changes to the traditional Pokemon story turn out well.

I will look into the palettes at the moment there are a few higher things on my to-do-list, than colour schemes, but I will add that to the list.

KANTO has a few edits I won't be releasing this to the public, and if it is released it would be because of someone already playing the game, maybe yourself... In saying this, I may add a map to the opening post with a region map, and each new area that is found, I will pin-point that area out on the map, you've just given me this idea, thanks for that haha.

Information On Rivals and Starters:
The starters aren't the traditional Grass, Fire, Water... In actually fact, the starter you have, the rival will not start with your weakness... Because in Homeward Bound™, you don't have a traditional Rival either... You make rivals during the game... The main characters (that you can choose from (male/female))... Have their Pokémon given to them differently, none of the, "both go to the Professor, you pick the starter, your rival picks the strongest to suit... Battle... Then rematch a couple towns on..." But your rival is played out differently and I love how all the rivals are played during the game... Can't wait for you all to find out what part they play

I never understood why the games make your rival do that! I wouldn't care for weaknesses, that shows the trainers weakness and as far as I know, Gary, is better than Ash, right?! Having never lost... So why pick the "stronger" out the 3...

I'm hoping your Starter will be a nice surprise, to a starter point of view anyway... Another thing, as I've made this game somewhat harder at points, easy at others and medium at others (this is not respective, as the game itself is spread between easy, madium and harder trainers), The starter you have is stronger than the originals.

How Do We Meet The Rival and Do We Battle:
You meet the rival early enough in the game, but you do not battle, he/she fits into the story (read the title)... There are a few characters that you meet throughout, who you will battle and each have their own "thing".

What Happened To The Original Starters:
This may be a question that would float in the back of your mind whether you ask it or not, but the usual KANTO starters, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, are available! Not by events, these are not given to you, they are not a prize, these are in fact, nothing to do with my creation... You can capture these in the wild, so you can have as many of these as you like.

What Other Pokémon Will Be Wild Then:
Good question! Every Pokémon is available, some only by overworld encounters, the rest, on Land, Surfing, Fishing, Caves and evolution... By Overworld encounters, I don't mean how Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres were portrade in r/b/y, or Mewtwo, but, they will be roamers in the wild, I just think it'll look prettier if some were moving in front of you instead of walking in the grass all the time, but, in some cases, they will be found in grass or caves, or whatever! But as rares, more common as Overworlds... Overworlds however, also have a chance to flee.
thank god it wont be the same every game i played its like the same thing over and over looking for to playing this game around school starting again xD

I've named and given movesets to my latest Fakemon and also created some new ones:

Pandanhug
Spoiler:

TYPE1= Normal.
EVOLUTION= None as of yet.
DESCRIPTION= It's a Panda Bear... To state the obvious.
REASON FOR THIS= I kept calling Spinda, spanda, so I thought I'd create one name Spanda, it didn't stay named that for long.


Grapevine
Spoiler:

TYPE1= Grass
TYPE2= Poison
EVOLUTION= None as of yet
DESCRIPTION= It's some grapes.
REASON FOR THIS= It was originally meant to look like a flower, but I was watching TV at the time and saw some grapes on an advert and I kind of just drew grapes, I never changed them to my original idea.


Alynice
Spoiler:

TYPE1= Water
TYPE2= Ice
EVOLUTION= None as of yet
DESCRIPTION= Alynice is an aligator, I'm in the process of giving Alynice a mean 2nd form.
REASON FOR THIS= I originally was going to do a single evolution but the meaner (which will now be Alynice's evolved form) version seemed more of a 2nd or 3rd evo as opposed to a first, so Alynice was draw to be the cuter of the 2.


Shyshadow and Harlyquen
Spoiler:

TYPE1= Dark
TYPE2= Psychic
EVOLUTION= Shyshadow--->Harlyquen
DESCRIPTION= They are both human forms, the first thing you will notice is that they have no arms, this is not an error, those little beings floating around act as their arms... Despite Shyshadow only having one being, it is still capable of doing everything Harlyquen can do, just slower.
Shyshadow--->Shyshadow appears to have no legs or arms, infact Shyshadow has legs, they are below the dress she is wearing...
Harlyquen--->Harlequen has a better physique than Shyshadow and is more agile, with the fact that Harlyquen doesn't walk, she floats, she is wearing a mini skirt, with a trail (just another skirt that hangs off the back basically) and is wearing a rather cute body corset... Unlike Shyshadow, you can see Harlyquen's legs.
REASON FOR THIS= I had a sudden image of how the one was going to look (now name Harlyquen), so as I was in the motion of drawing her, another image came into mind of her pre-evo(Shyshadow).


Demiseon
Spoiler:

TYPE1= Ghost
EVOLUTION= Eevee--->Demiseon
DESCRIPTION= Another Eeveelution, Demiseon, is a ghostly spirit of Eevee, the fog around it's body is actually a lead to another dimension... Demiseon can learn a move that is to it's own kind, it is also the only way to get Demiseon, can you figure it out?!
REASON FOR THIS= This was actually drew a few months back, I remember seeing a post on this website with a bunch of Eeveelutions, now I hate using other peoples designs, I'd prefer to draw my own, plus I'm not a thief... Demiseon came about when I actually gave Eevee a new attack, but figured, I could turn that attack into a Fakemon, and viola, Demiseon is born.


Egg
Spoiler:

TYPE1= Egg
EVOLUTION= Egg has no evolution.
DESCRIPTION= Egg has been created so that wild eggs can be found, it has no attack, it has very high HP and Defense, It uses a special move which has a 0.0001% chance of working, once captured it will be a normal egg which will hatch into something from that area.
REASON FOR THIS= I thought, Pokémon still make eggs in the wild, they don't need to be shoved into a day care to do it, so here is an Egg type... Eggs are like 1 in 500,000, chance, of finding one, but it has a higher chance to hatch a shiny... The eggs will be different colors to show rareness and species, most eggs will produce rares... Even at level 1, this will be an extreme task to beat down and capture... Be careful, you may cause it's parents to attack.


That's all for the fakemon at the moment, I have more, but save them for anther time... I haven't fit them into my PokéDex yet, but, when I get enough, they will probably fit in where the newer GEN V one's should be, because I'm not having gen 5 in my game, despite whether or not Maruno or any one adds them...

Looking forward for the finishing of this hack! I like the story and graphics, although I find the grass to be a bit too bright, but that's my opinion

Thanks.

Well, a new update which would've made me cry if I wern't doing this as a hobby...

Everything I have done has gone since April 24th, now I'm assuming that's when Essentials had it's upgrade... But my laptop I had my game saved on, the HD died (convenient to say the least) and I lost MAJOR progress... At the moment, I'm going to take a break from game development on this game itself and focus on my career and I helping others for the time being.

The thing with what happened is, it actually helps me, during this time I was making my game I was actually learning from a couple people how to script better and what does what etc. etc. And I'm getting better at scripting, so with my last updates, I can now make them quicker and better... By tidying up my game a little... You guys couldn't see, but the scripts and everything was a mess from where I was trying new stuff out and failing then trying again, failing, then finding the answer but didn't erase what I done before... Now I know how to do all this stuff, I can get it done twice as quick (bonus I think).

So the fact my HD died is a good thing... In saying this, I know everything I added and created, so I can implement this easily enough... I looked at this thread and saw what Major updates I had posted and put them in, within the past 2 hours, (which is clearly a lot quicker than the 3 months it took me before).

As for the progress stamps that I have made throughout this thread, nothing will change as I can do it all simple and quick, with less errors, which is great for me and for you.

The only downside is, some graphics I had, are gone, now this I will probably set aside for the release in future, and use them as an upgrade, which by the way, will cause you to lose your save game, BUT, I will make sure to give you a choice wether or not to use newer graphics or not... So don't worry if you want to complete the game first first... I've already thought about most of this.

As you can see, progress has been lost, time side, but progress has been made development side... The game isn't set-back by anything, the HD dying, did a nice hefty clean-up for me, with none the work developer side.

I'm going to help out newer members with their games, when and where I can.

On a plus note, I have a friend who will create a web page for Homeward Bound so progress is going to happen one way or another... On another note, this friend, may take over from me on the production side, but I will still help develope aswell, I got myself a modelling job so a lot of time will be going in to that, a nice 12 hour day I had yesterday... Once I speak to him later on tonight, in about 6-9 hours, I will get him to post on here when he can to let you know what is going on with progress.

Once the exchange happens... Watch Homeward Bound change massively... He's good at what he does.

Keep comments coming

Hey. Sorry to hear about losing a lot of yourprogress. The game was coming along very well. However, you did say you would be helping others. Could you possibly help Pokemon Jade?

Of course I can, you'll just have to let me know what you want.

The game will still come along! My friend will take over for the time being and I will float around here and there... He will be signing up tomorro, which I will help him do tomorro before I go off being dressed in gorgeous clothes :D So no idea what his username is yet.

Aw ur first post was on my thread and you misread...

The egg actually has high Defence and HP not attack... I thought it was a good idea too... I haven't been here in a while so I haven't updated this thread... But there is a bit to report which I won't do right now... I couldn't beat a level 1 egg with a level 37 Hitmonlee haha I got bored of the battle and switched the game off

Not for a while I'm afraid. @ZekRes

I'm looking for some real help, no time wasters and any of the sort if you would like to be part of a HUGE project, get in touch, if you can do anything, let me know, show me your work, show me anything, I'm open to idea's, one thing I request is commitment.

After you have been with the team for a short while I will let you more into the plans, until then, you will be on standby for requests from myself and other members, this is to weed out all the spies, thieves, and any other little punks that just want to know ideas and run them into their own game.

You can already see this team can do in the OP.

If you want to help, fill this out real quick and easy, then post here or PM, either doesn't bother me.

I'm not really looking for mappers because I have my own style, but if you can follow clear instructions for mapping, then I'll be happy to take you on... I'm not even asking any of you to do all the work, believe me, like 90% of the work will be done by myself and the other members of my team already, you will just be joining the team as an equal, I listen to other peoples ideas too... The missing 10% is what we cannot do, If I'm mapping, other members are Scripting, who is Spriting? And you get the idea where that would've been going.

Any questions, just ask... I'll try my best to answer all of them... I'm receiving a high interest in this already, so I haven't had time to reply to most people yet, which is the cause for this post, so sorry to those I haven't yet, but I'm looking for anyone with experiences already, I don't have time to teach you the basics, neither does my team.

The title kind of puts me off, having the Trademark sign doesn't really represent the game well. You can't register an already registered trademark. You can't have any copyright whatsoever, because this isn't an idea never seen before. 'Part from that, good job.
