I need people to help me out with this. i can do the designs and the plot, but I need spriters and mappers and all that.

Plot
Spoiler:
So, it's basically this. It starts out like any other Pokemon game. You choose to be either a boy or a girl, gender you don't pick becomes your pseudo-rival, some other person becomes your rival, you get 8 badges to enter the League, and you have to defeat an evil team whose plot relevancy will overshadow the standard gym badges=Elite Four plot. Anyway, this story takes place in the region of Orion. Its shape is a plus sign. There are 2 towns and 2 cities on each quadrant, with one big city in the middle, Orion City. This game will feature manga inspired undertones.

Our hero starts off in Harbor Town in East Orion. He/she is reading a news article about this region's evil team, Team Universe. It says that Universe is building a device that can enable them to travel the Pokemon multiverse. The hero/ine wishes that they could do something to stop it. After a time, s/he realizes the time and heads off to Maplewood to get his/her Pokemon. His/her 2 best friends are there. The pseudo-rival and the rival. After a rival battle, they venture forth.

After the 2nd badge, a blonde girl runs up to you to make you battle her. You do so. After the 5th badge, another girl runs up to you for a battle. After the battle, Blue, the Viridian City gym leader/Red's rival/former Kanto champion runs up to you too to explain some things. Yellow and Leaf were the girls you battled. He explains that he, Red, Yellow, and Leaf(The four Pokedex holders from Kanto) arrived in Orion 2 weeks ago to check out Team Universe's schemes. They were captured, but only Blue escaped. He's been trying to find a way to get his friends back ever since. You offer to help, but Blue declines stating that he doesn't want anyone else in trouble and walks away. Your rival and pseudo-rival, who overheard the conversation, express their worries over his friends.

After the 6th badge, you encounter Red. You lose the battle, but Blue comes in just in time to start a battle, but Red withdraws and disappears. Blue wonders why they're only targeting you and not your friends, then goes away to do something.

After the 8th badge, you try to enter Orion City again since the Battle Tower is there. It's blocked off by Team Universe grunts. Blue arrives along with your best friends/pseudo-rival and rival. They attempt to have a battle, but the grunts wish to fight without Pokemon. Either way, you're supposed to win. You enter the city to see that Team Universe took over. You enter the Battle Tower and fight grunts on your way up to the top where Team Universe and the brainwashed Pokedex holders finish the Multiverse device. There is an Earthquake and a flash of light, and wouldn't you know? Ash Ketchum from the anime universe pops up. With that, Blue battles Red, the rival battles Leaf, the pseudo-rival battles Yellow, Ash battles the second-in-command, and you battle the boss. After that, you enter another battle with the boss, but without Pokemon. You punch him into the device, destroying it. Now, the day is saved! But, Ash, Pikachu, and his Pokemon are stuck in your universe now. You'll figure out how to get them back another time.

Anyway, after resting your Pokemon up, you finally, and formally, battle through Battle Tower. You beat the Elite Four and face your rival/champion. Then after entering the Hall of Fame, you say your goodbyes to the Pokedex holders while Ash settles in West Orion. And the game ends. The End.


Characters
Spoiler:

Takeru
Referred to as "Take-chan" by his friends, he is the male hero. 16 years old. He becomes the pseudo-rival if you choose the female heroine. He is very out there if you don't choose him. He's a bit dense, but is smart when he needs to interject it. He's very gullible and makes strange statements that eventually branches off into his own logic. If any. He represents the fact that Pokemon originated in Japan.

Purple
She is the female hero. Also 16 years old. She's the pseudo-rival if you choose Takeru. She's very snarky. She's always the one with smartass comments. She is second smartest. She's the one who usually keeps the other two in their place. So, she's the mediator. Her name represents the fact that early on, the protagonists were named after colours.

Matthew
Nicknamed "Matt" by his friends. He is hotheaded, comically serious, and the rival. Or, so he thinks. He just says you're his rival, but in actuality, he does nothing that would qualify him as a rival. Jerk with a heart of gold, yep. He's the smartest of the three, and he is strategic. Somehow. Anyway, his name represents the fact that Pokemon is very popular in the US, Europe, etc.



Team(So far)
Spoiler:

Roboblob: Storyliner, character design, city design, sprite design, music chooser.


I just need more spriters, mappers, beta testers, and Pokemon Essentials 11. I'll get around to downloading it eventually. School is busying me for now.

.I think this idea has a lot of potential in it. If you develop it well, it could end up in a great game. I have one question though : How will the battles without pokemon be?
And i saw you needed beta tester, so count me in! And if you need help on the story, i'm your man. Anyway, good luck with this.

So far, yes. I do what I can. I'm learning how to utilize the battle system.

It's the backview of the player character and the battle sprite for the other guy. You have commands for fighting. Namely, PUNCH, KICK, TACKLE, and SHOVE.

I like how you emphasize that this idea is nothing special so far :D

I'm confused, is Team Universe offically showing off their device and only we (as readers of your post) know they are evil or does everybody in the game knows that so obviously some insider information went out of the team. If so, are they pursuading the mole?

Why is multiversal travel bad again?
Quote:
Ash Ketchum from the anime universe pops up.
Nevermind, this IS bad!
Quote:
Ash battles the second-in-command
Gary was there, Ash is a looser!

Quote:
you battle the boss
Why? Is the protagonist a Pokedex holder? Does he have a stronger bond to the boss than Red (somewhat similiar to Emerald and Jirachi, though the situation was completely different). Is it some inconvinience that the protagonist lands there? Because I can hardly imaging Red letting a rookie go against the evil boss, at least not alone.

Quote:

Is the boss a wimp or is the protagonist working out in secret? To punch someone into a certain direction is no easy thing to do.

Quote:

WHYYYYYY? For the sake of Anime inconsistence, does that mean he doesn't age there either? Will other people notice this? Will he be examined? :D

Quote:
and face your rival/champion
No, wait! Rival was defeating Leaf earlier so he can't be faster than protagonist in climbing the tower after everything is fine again.


I think the idea is extendable. And personally, I don't like Ash. Also, how is Orion connected to the other regions?

Enough critics for today, time to continue learning...

I like the RPG feeling plot better than the main plot.

News bloggers are dedicated to their jobs. Let's just say that one guy went under cover to uncover this info.

I firmly believe that multiuniversal travel unbalances the whole multiverse itself. Worlds will be destroyed. Or permanently changed.

Remember, Blue is still battling Red at this point. All those battles take place simultaneously. Besides, you usually have to battle the boss in the games anyway.

Theme Music Power-Up. Well, Battle Music Power-Up. That, and I vision the leader as a fairly thin guy.

Depends on how long he's there.

Moving at the speed of the plot. That, and this takes place a few weeks after the Team Universe incident.

You don't like Ash? I never would've guessed. And, it's east of Unova.

Yeah, realized this later but forget to change my post accordingly. I knew you had the Boss battle in mind, I was just pointing out the Why. Like, did prota earned enough trust from Blue and so on (because they hardly meet according to your plot, just two, three times. (On the other side, this isn't really unusual for the games indeed.)) or was prota just there conveniently? I guess you'll go for trust and convenience together; I just wanted to explain the original intention of my question.

Looks good so far. Now it is amusing how rival regained his power faster and became champ already. "Hey Elite Four, you sure have recovered after 2 days? Let's battle!" :D

EDIT; I've just voted for original starters thinking by "original" you simply mean "no fake pokemon". It's simply my taste, because through some Fakemon look amazing, I just don't see the point, because there are enough Pokemon out already :P
Oh, and it's just that I can't take Ash seriously.

With other projects in the way, I think I might have to either shut this down, or just be only good for concept and let others do the work. Projects being school and writing. Mostly school.
