I did change the tileset slightly - the new flowers and sand tiles haven't been shown before.

But the main change, as shinylugia249 and Lorem Ipsum noticed, is that I've increased the resolution. This was because I felt some of the screens were becoming too cluttered, and I was running out of space, especially on the Trainer Memo page of the Summary screen. Advance-style sprites are staying, though. But all of them will be recoloured :O

Expect screens tomorrow (and possibly some details on the story)! :D
I'm going to try and renovate the first post next weekend.

The new screenshot looks pretty good. The only thing I would say is that I'm really not sure if the character is in the center of the screen or if it's just me. Notice how you can see like half the grass.

I just think it would look better.

More screens, this time of the Summary screen in the new DS resolution.

Not the most exciting screens, but they do have new graphics. New Axolitl sprite, too :D
I also added a few things to the trainer memo - the capture details and a small notes section. In this, you can give each of your Pokémon a comment - useful for all kinds of things ;)
I'm not sure what I should have in the purple bit on the left, though. Any suggestions?

Also, here's the new Trainer Card.

The reverse is similar to the trainer cards you see on the internet. I'm planning on adding the Pokémon's levels and gender. There's a small bug where the starter Pokémon doesn't register on the Pokédex, hence only having one Pokémon caught on the front. It's easily fixed, though.
Dipleaf's head has been changed, too.

Finally, here's an animation of the new menu system.

Left and right to switch the selected option, and up and down to switch your team order. Rather simple controls :P

The new tiles look amazing. The tiles all look really well together.
The DS Resolution is better I think. The simpler controls to the menu will make things much quick to get done. Good job Wichu. This project is one of my favs on the board. I like your scripting skills, and how your trying to use your own ideas rather then take someone elses.
Cool update.

With the tiles, I tried to emulate Kyledove's style, as I think it's one of the more distinct styles. I didn't want to use his own tiles, as a lot of games are using them, so I made some myself.

I also forgot to mention that the menu icons are placeholders until I make some specifically for it. That's why there's multiple Pokéball ones and why they don't match.

Finally, I get the feeling someone's rated my thread 1 star recently :(
Actually, it could be that two people rated it 3 stars, but that's not very satisfying either.

From now, if you rate the thread, please tell me how I could improve, unless you think it's perfect (which it isn't).

Sweeeet. I like it. Oh and the bottom hmm i have an idea. You could add a family tree. You know if a breeder you could have that little addition to make it more fun. Or a rareness/preciousness meter. Say its gotten through 8 gyms a master rank contest is shiny-reverse skinned and won the E4. It would have a rareness/preciousness/rank of elite pokemon. It is prized by its trainer mitch. It has been with him from the start and helped him through many obstacles.
Good idea eh?

~link smash~: Keep in mind that it has to fit; good luck squeezing a family tree into there! It should be something simple. Actually, that gives me an idea - the item it's holding fills it perfectly (even though that's already on the first page of the Summary screen).

Thanks for the support!
A few posts above this, I asked people rating the thread to give ways in which I could improve. You haven't been doing that!
Especially the person who just gave it 4. What should I improve to bring it up to a 5? It doesn't help if you rate it without saying why you gave it that score...

Well i don't know if this improves the game or not but you know when you catch a pokemon and it shows there profile right after you catch it how about it shows also in the corner what moves they know i got that idea from pokemon diamond and pearl when paul always used his pokedex after he catches a pokemon to see whattype of moves they got but it's just a suggestion though.

Yayyys. I really like those screens. The resolution is much better. Although, about the trainer card, if you're using the advanced sprites, the card looks very empty to the right. The new menu looks great as well (although, I prefer the old one better ^__^;;). Are you just working on getting the games system working right now, or have you started on the story? Can't wait for the next update!

thats actually a great idea because it gets annoying catching pokemon and its not what you want(stats, nature, characteristic) and you can release it right away if its not, another feature that would go with that.

Nice. Real nice. Oh is that wichus evo in your avie. Thats nice as well. Anyweh no screenshots? Sure you got a reason but thats a bit unfair to have a game up in the showcase but no screens. Anyweh hmm i was thinking under the pic. Instead of an item or a rank of the pokemon(my idea but got ignored) mabye hmm oh i got it. A hapiness bar! I mean at least let us see how happy the pokemon is with you.
