Intro | Zela Region | The Legend of Darkrai | Story | Characters | Starters | Features | Screenshots | Download | Credits


Intro

Welcome to the world of Pokémon! Some of you may remember me from my thread in the Beginners Showcase or some of my tutorials. I started this game over a year ago and finally feel ready to move into the Showcase. Pokémon Melanite is my fan game made in RPG Maker XP using Pokémon Essentials. Thank you for taking the time to look at my game and I hope you enjoy playing it. The current Demo is complete just past the second gym, and contains approximately 4 hours of gameplay. There was another thread for this game a long time ago that has some more info and history on the game. That can be found here.

I would like to apologize to anyone I have inconvenienced by disappearing from this site over the last few months. I haven't responded to many people and I feel bad about it.




Zela Region



Pokémon Melanite takes place in the brand new Zela Region, located just north-west of Sinnoh. It is said that Zela is the second oldest Region in the Pokémon universe, the oldest being Sinnoh. Zela is full of many different biome like locations. You will start off your journey in the Hills and Grassy Plains, and move on to Rocky Mountains, Lush Forests, Tropical Beaches, Toxic Marshlands, Fierce Desert, and even a Glacier. The region is also full of many cities, towns, and special locations waiting to be explored.



The Legend of Darkrai



The story of Pokémon Melanite revolves around the Pokémon Darkrai. Unlike in the movie and official games, in Pokémon Melanite, Darkrai is evil. 30 years ago, in the Sinnoh Region, a boy named Lucas was in Canalave City. For some reason he felt compelled to check the door of an old inn, even though it had been locked as long as anyone could remember. Except, this time, the door was open. Lucas walked inside, and was greeted by a strange man, who offered him a bed. Feeling unusually tired, Lucas fell asleep and dreamed of visiting a strange island. The dream became a nightmare when a Pokémon named Darkrai appeared and attacked him. Lucas was able to capture Darkrai, and took him off the island with him. Little did he know, Darkrai planned on being caught, and Lucas had just helped him escape Newmoon Island.



Story

You are a young, 15 year old boy/girl, who has grown up in Lily Town, located right in the center of Zela. You head downstairs one day to find your mom waiting for you. She asks you to go get a package from your neighbor down the street, and reminds you not to go in the forest. However, on your way to your neighbors' house, you meet a strange old man. He seems to recognize you some how, and wanders off towards the forest. Unable to contain your curiosity, you follow him. Suddenly, you find yourself attacked by wild Pokémon. The stranger from town tells you to follow him into a strange old lab, and introduces himself as Prof. Oak. Oak gives you a choice of three Pokémon, and you head home. However, when you return to thank the Professor, you find he has disappeared, and left a note. "Go to Novum Town, and find Alice. Tell her that 'Peace has been Broken' once again. She will know what it means."

You find yourself a part of events that cannot be stopped. Darkrai has escaped his prison, and plans to plunge the world into darkness. You, Alice, a boy named Parker, and a mysterious trainer named Yang are the only ones who can stop the world from falling apart.




Characters



The Protagonists: Ray and Kelsey
Ray and Kelsey are 15 years old, and have grown up with their mother in peaceful Lily Town. Little do they know they are destined for much more than a peaceful life in a quiet town.


The Rivals: Parker and Katrina
Parker is a friendly boy who lives right past Route 1 in Novum Town. He has always dreamed of being a Pokémon Master. Katrina on the other hand, is a rude, selfish girl who only cares about the strongest Pokémon.




Gym Leader Joey
That's right. Joey and his top percentage Rattata is back, and he's grown up to become a gym leader. Joey is the leader of the Normal Type Gym in Pallisa City, and the holder of the Typic Badge. His signature Pokémon is a shiny Rattata.


Gym Leader Doug
Doug has a special place in his heart for ancient fossilized Pokémon. He is the leader of the Rock Type Gym in Splitsoul Town, and the holder of the Fossil Badge. His signature Pokémon is a Kabutops.


Gym Leader Rayna
This gym leader from Palm City loves swimming, especially with her Pokémon. She is the leader of the Water Type Gym in Palm City, and the holder of the Pearl Badge. Her signature Pokémon is a Politoad.


Professor Oak
A strange old man who helps you get your first Pokémon, and then disappears.


Pokémon Trainer Alice
Alice is a trainer who helps you on your journey. She prefers Dark Type Pokémon. Her signature Pokémon is Umbreon.


Yin and Yang
These two mysterious trainers are responsible for keeping Peace in the region. They are also the holders of Zekrom and Reshiram respectively.


Team Masquerade
A strange group of thugs that has an interest in Pokémon that can change form.




Starters



Croagunk | Sneasel | Natu
All evolve at Level 27, and all stats have been changed to make them even. While this type triangle isn't perfect, it works in its own way. Croagunk is double super effective against sneasel and Natu is double super effective against Croagunk. Sneasel isn't double super effective against Natu, but both of Sneasel's types are super effective against Natu, and Psychic won't even effect Sneasel.

Nice game! You have cool HGSS tiles. I like how you painted the Battleboxes!

Good to see that Melanite is back in full swing. :'D
I made a little supporter bar for you, hope you don't mind. I'm glad to see a logo didn't go to waste, either.

Thank you and thanks again for the awesome logo. I've used it through everything. Awesome support bar too. I like it better than the current one. Can I use it as the official one once I get back on a computer?

EDIT: I added it to the post assuming it's ok. If not for some reason I will take it down if you want.

Just added one of the elite four sprites. It may not be final. I hope to have the water gym leader soon. Also, check the bottom of the main thread for new info on multiple things.

You certainly can, just upload it to you own image host as I'll be deleting it from my Dropbox to save some space. I'm not a spriter, but, if I have some time I would be up for doing a little art for this game; I'm backed up on commissions right now, so I'll be busy for a long time.

Hey this looks great but looking at your map you seem to not have any snow or ice on it. Is that just because you don't have the colours. If so, I could give the one I use to you.

Good luck with the game.

I have plenty of snow/ice tiles, and desert, and beach, and swamp, and underwater, I just have yet to use them. The hometown is in a very basic part of the region. I am trying to not make too many maps before I actually am ready for them. Thanks for the offer though.

Will do. I will do that right away. Thanks for the offer. I have a great spriter for trainers right now, but if i need anything, and can't find someone, i will definitely come to you.

The only thing I'm really missing is a good BW styled pond auto tile.

Oh, ok. I'll send you some via a PM but they're more HGSS styled mixed with BW, as BW water autotiles are hard to compile because they consist of many components which inconveniently overlap in a normal autotile.

Thanks for the compliments. Could you explain what you mean by the red? Of you are talking about the site design in general, I haven't used the site in ages, and probably won't again. I update regularly here www.reddit.com/r/pokemonmelanite

EDIT: Sorry i just reread this and realized you meant the title screen. That is like most things on the site, old. I am completely changing it. I want to base it off of the image on the home page of my old site, without some of the pokemon.

Added sprites for 3rd and 5th gym leaders, Bethany the water type leader, and Lectro the electric type leader

Alright then. Not sure whether I was clear with my last post though, I tend to do it a lot by accident, but I was refering to your region map.

Your sprites look great, but what's with the fifth gym leader. Is he meant to have an electric explosion behind him or something. It just looks a little awkward to me with the black background of the page.

Oh. The map is in HGSS style and I want to keep it original to the game. I do have the colors for that I just chose not to use them. Plus, I only designed the map, it was made by NikNaks who is an amazing map maker. With the gym leader, I don't make the sprites. I give my spriter a description and he works his magic. That is a static aura almost surrounding him. It does look strange with this background I admit, but it looks fine with a plain battle back behind it.
