Will the game look like a normal pokemon game outside of battle, or will you make it different?

This sounds like a mixture of yugioh and pokemon... and it sounds pretty promising. I've gotta ask, though, how do you come up with these things?

Wow

I only played the 1st TCG on Gameboy and still have it and play when I have the urge :D
It was a game like no other, a very refreshing change from the other PokéGames(Like how Mystery Dungeon Blue was to me(Just something new))

Sure most people won't spend much time on Pc games but this is a game where you can open, play a few matches and save and close again, simple enough really.

In D/P/P, R/S/E, can you not have the choice of doing Pokémon Contests ?(Personally instead of having to beat the Gym for a HM to work or to get somewhere, winning a contest would have also worked, shame they didn't consider this)

Just open your minds a little bit, so you suck at playing cards, I know I'm not the greatest TCG player but it's still fun as it's a challenge whereas Pokémon isn't;

Pokémon games I just chuck on my Kadabra/Alakazam and wipe the floor with anything in my way except for those unfortunate times and even then something else steps in, you cannot do this with TCG so it's an element of unknown :D

All cards are a little unrealistic tho Waudby, maybe do it in Episodes a 151 Card Deck(Excluding different card copies) 1st and etc...

Good luck on this

Well because it's TCG we can't really have Wild Pokémon Cards attacking in long grass so we've had to change it around.

The world that this is based in is a bit more like the real world, there are no Pokémon, they are just fiction.

There will lots of different ways to make some money so that you can buy new cards and decks. We're trying to make the storyline as shocking as possible and we think you'll like some of the ideas we've thrown around in the last few days.

You'll be able to fish for real fish, dig up buried treasures and do a number of other minigames to earn you money.

We're aiming for this to be quite easy to just pick up and play but it will still be the TCG that the hardcore fans know and love.

Well the TCG has been a huge part of the Pokémon franchise for years now. So we just thought we'd try something a little bit different than what most fan games do.

Yeah the cards are still being worked on, they're place holders until the bulk of the work is finished, it's a bit difficult to do cards on top of doing all the systems necessary as well, but yeah they will be changed to something better looking :D

Thanks for the encouragement.

Out of curiosity, I think it would be cool if you use a batch job to generate card versions of the Pokemon. As Neo said, 250 is a lot if you're doing it by hand.

Good luck!
Yeah we were going to do this, however we have decided to steer away from the Mystery Dungeon sprites to appeal to the card collectors out there.

A preview of the card artwork may be available to view later today.

That's cool, I'm looking forward to seeing the update.
I always liked how you did updates close to each other rather then really spread out over time.

Hey Waudby question. Would later on for special events or something would you be handing out special edition card packs for download if someone wins and such? And would you be considering the addition of online battles?

The online battles will be part of the game.

As for the special cards there will be certain events that will add new cards to the game etc.

oh wow this looks great!

You have a lot of challenges because it isn't set in the pokemon world, but you can also have a lot of neat things.

Would be pretty cool seeing the users buy some pokemon merchandise in the shops, (just like decorations in the main games)

Or TV shows playing the pokemon anime,

Or bookshelves containing the pokemon manga,

Or people playing pokemon games on their DSi


cannot wait to see what you do with this Wuadby

Another update...Saturday, 22/04/2009


I said the other day that I will update with the new look for the cards. And now I'm ready to show 5 cards and revealed one of the Starter Deck lists.

I'd like to say a really big thanks to Kyledove and Riceeman for some superb work. Kyle designed the new styled cards and also 4 of the 5 cards I'm going to show. So a massive thanks to Him and we hope for continued support

The new cards...




As you can see a massive step forward in the look of the cards. Trying to emulate the official cards as well as having a bit of our own flare there. The Dirfloon was designed and sprited by Riceeman which I then edited slightly. Hopefully the cards will please the avid card collectors out there.

It would be obvious to say that the designing and spriting stage for the cards will undoubtedly delay release time and newer screen shots however we are working very hard on getting as much done in a short time whilst still upholding a good level of quality.


The Growth Spurt Deck...


• Vileplume x1
• Gloom x2
• Oddish x4
• Roserade x2
• Roselia x4
• Budew x2
• Carnivine x2
• Tangrowth x2
• Tangela x4
• Shroomish x2

• Potion x4
• Mum's Kindness x2
• Energy Search x2
• Energy Switch x2
• Switch x2

• Grass Energy x23

These starter decks are supposed to be highly customisable that's why the cards aren't overpowered. The next starter deck that will be revealed is the Tidal Surge deck.


Hopefully you've enjoyed this update and it has surprised you. We really can't wait to show you more of what we have in store but for now, you'll just have to wait

Until next time :D
~Waudby and Riceeman

Thanks.

And yeah we're gonna sprite every card in the game, but we're going to do it as necessary, so for instance, the starter deck cards will be worked on before the first card leader etc.

Nice Work.
If you would like I could make some decks and stuff.
I can make really balanced ones as I have a couple of decks that are good.
This should be a nice game.I hope there is going to be a userbar for this game.

Wow is the first thing i have to say. Secondly I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Kaoskaix, but Kai or Kaix works well for a shorter name and I have followed this games evolution from time to time since I first saw sky blue at the sphere website. I have always been in awe of the balls you have to push the capabilities of a pokemon game and your desire to please the crowd while still following what you wanted.

I'd also like to briefly point out that the reason i never posted anything sooner was simply because I never had anything to contribute other than "WHOA"

Well to the main point, this game is awesome. It is utterly incredible. I'd have to say it is the best sounding game out there. There just simply aren't comparisons. Furthermore don't listen to anyone who tells you it is bad for whatever reason. The only beef I have with it is the rules of the pokemon card game. Personally never liked the style of the gameplay. I saw less strategy in it compared to Yu gi oh (or at least more subtle strategy in pokemon which is also a turn off) I wish you nothing but the best of luck and I will still follow the game and look for advice to give just not as much.

All that being said I think the first piece of advice would be that you may want to find a way to prevent the "ultimate deck"/"ultimate decks" Many card games make it too easy to sit down and figure out the perfect deck and then simply gather the cards necesary which is alsways a big turn off to the casual newcomer.

My suggestion would be to just keep up the great work until people refine the "ultimate decks" then research them, find the cards that make the deck together and add them to a list that bans random cards from the list every day. This way you get people constantly refining their decks in a seemingly indefinite manner and you also give them a reason to find cards to help them prepare for things that are unforseen. The list itself could be automated from a central server and the code could be written so that the cards are all grouped into the decks they are used in and that the program must add atleast one card from every deck every three days or so. The program must account for cards that are in multiple decks. This will ensure that the most used cards ideally, are banned more often and the least used cards are less often banned.

That reminds me of Yu-Gi-Oh World Championship 2005even Trials to Glory
I think that is a great idea just refiening the decks and stuff but it would be annoying if you only had 60 cards and it keeps coming up with the message Arceus is banned.
How would come in that situation? You sold all your other cards.So you would have to make a system that you must have at least 20 cards in your trunk/inventory.
So theres my 2 cents and I hpe this game comes successful and get complete.

Thanks for the comments and support

About the ultimate decks, since we're writing all the card spoilers ourselves, it's easy to control how many cards are over powered or would make a deck too powerful, we can easily change the power of the cards if we find too many people just wanna use the strongest cards, however the cards will be super rare, so it wont be easy to just go hunt them down.

I should have guess something like this from looking at you and Riceman's sigs.
Can't say I'm "crazy" about this idea, but I'll watch the thread to see how it develops.
Good luck!
