Haha, I haven't replied to this thread in ages :P

Wichu if you ever need help spriting I can help you out. I made the charizard in my avatar using your tutorial.
Not bad; there's a few minor problems (for example, there's a bit too much dithering and some of the curved lines look a bit jagged). If you want to help out, could you join the dev forum? I have a list of sprites that need to be done there.
Quote originally posted by InMooseWeTrust:
Wichu, what did you use as base for your fakemon? I know about this.
Hmm...
Well, Chacaw is based on a macaw, a type of parrot.
Bushby's name is a corruption of bushbaby, which is a type of monkey.
Wichu is a mouse (there's always a Pokémon similar to Pikachu in every generation).
Argaze is based on insects which have eye patterns on their wings to scare off predators.
Ignicub is a bear cub, specifically a sun bear.
Dipleaf is based on a diplodocus, but with a shorter neck (see its dex entry).
Quote originally posted by P.I.E.86:
First post? I see the starter names. They're Dipleaf, Ignicub, and Axolitl. I didn't see the names of their evolutions on the first post or first page. I'll just assume there are no names as of yet.
The starter evolutions haven't been revealed yet; you'll have to wait until it comes out to find out.
Quote originally posted by PokemaxST:
I'd like to say that i've got my first scratch sprite ready. i call it SPIRITALE.
Well, why don't you post it? I don't know whether to accept you if I can't see how good you are...
Quote originally posted by HiroUey:
Ok, my bad, im new to all of this, exlpain to me the differneces and other stuff, i know now that these are not hacks, just remakes with differences right?
A 'hack' is a modification of an existing Pokémon game. It uses the same coding, but with changed sprites, maps and events. A 'game' is made without using the coding from a real Pokémon game. In this case, I'm using the Pokémon starter kit by poccil. A 'game' has the advantage of being able to easily see and edit the code, unlike a ROM hack, where you have to use ASM (which is a lot more confusing). A 'game' also has less hardware limitations, since a ROM hack is limited to the things a GBA can do.
Quote originally posted by ChronicEdge:
Hey, do you need a custom Drifloon sprite?
Sorry, that's one of the Pokémon we already have a sprite for.

Anyway, progress has been slow lately. I'm picking up pace again, though; there will hopefully be a release this summer, or if you're lucky, earlier. Don't count on it, though; I've said that before :P

Some small teasers:

I've edited the other two starter Pokémon sprites to match their official art (finally). Axolitl's design hasn't changed, so the sprite's staying.


A nice visual effect for caves :O

Finally, we're still looking for staff members. The most needed ones are, at the moment, overworld spriters and someone experienced with an audio-editing program who could make cries for the new Pokémon. If you're talented at either of these two, please contact me!

The sprites are looking good, and the lighting in the caves is great. I'd be willing to contribute some overworld sprites, if you want. Are you doing D/P-styled now?

I'm actually using my own style; however, it's quite similar to D/P. If you still want to help, could you register on the dev forum? I posted some basic templates there; however, you'll probably have to edit them a bit, since they're for characters around the player's height. I've made a 'child' template too, but haven't posted it yet; I'll get it up if you need it.

Okay, great! Found 'em. I'll mess around, see what I come up with and post it on the dev forum. You basically just need a lot of NPCs?

Wichu, I have to say this is one of the greatest games I've seen. I love the way the battle scene works and it is great that you keep on adding more and more originality to your game. I wish you all the best with this game.

I don't need one at the moment; the forum is just a temporary forum, anyway. Try using a different web browser such as Firefox.

You won't need an emulator to play this; it's a stand-alone game.

No, there's no current demo.
If there was, it would be on the first page.
Just for future reference.

Hello. My name is TehSpriter, and you have probably never heard of me, but I am wanting to help you with Pokemon Amethyst.

Well firstly, sorry for messaging you like this! It is quite obvious that you have not heard of me before, as this is my first involvement with the PokeCommunity. I would like to provide support you by creating scratch Sprites for the game, Pokemon Amethyst.

I see Amethyst is progreesing quite quickly, and to be honest I really want to help contribute! I am only a beginner Spriter, and school may hold me down during this, but if you do accept my support, I will offer all of my skills, and will attempt to do anything necessary to get this project finished in an efficient manner.

if you would like any proof of my Spriting skills, please head over to my YouTube Channel by searching TehSpriter on YouTube (won't let me hyperlink). At the moment I only have one Sprite on there, but it is soon to progress.

If you have anything to tell me, or need anything arranging, please PM me on either PokeCommunity, or YouTube. If you need my Email address, please ask. Could you also supply me with anything you need doing if you accept this request.

Thanks and... bye =]

Very nice updates, Wichu! I really like the two new Pokémon sprites that were made. I also really like the screenshot... the renewed Pokémon Ruby graphics, Rock Smash rocks and the cool visual effect for the interiors of caves is great!

Also, sorry for not being active on the Pokémon Amethyst development forum and not creating any more overworld sprites of non-playable characters. I hope that I can still help out, and remind me what I have to do with those sprites I made...

I've got the storyline basically sorted. Thanks for offering, though.
Quote originally posted by ~Watermelon:

Yup, Flash is used for that. Like in D/P, Flash is a TM, not a HM; it can be found within the cave itself. You will also be able to buy it later in the game.

I watched your YouTube video. Are fusions the only thing you can do? I'm looking for scratch sprites, since they tend to look better than fusions if they're well sprited.

Err... thanks? No need to advertise your own Pokémon in my thread :P

Anyway, I won't be able to make much progress this week, due to coursework... However, I have a break coming up in a couple of weeks, so I'll try and get a lot done then.

Also, I'm rather disappointed that someone decided to rate the thread just one star. I can't say it's the highest-rated RMXP game any more :P (I'm not angry though; the thread rating isn't really important)

I just rated it a 5.

Your menu and battle systems are amazing in my perspective, and so are your sprites. Can't wait for a demo!

It's called jealousy. All the people that matter know that you're working hard on this project and that it definitely isn't worth "one-star." I hate the effing rating system. XD
