It'll be determined by the stats - but it won't be as simple as 'all of them have to be red' or 'the stats added together have to reach a target'. After all, we don't want someone on Legendary rank with no speed or something.

I was thinking about having:
Fragile
Puny
Weak
Average
Strong
Powerful
Legendary

But you never know, might be able to fit 'Abominably Powerful' in there somewhere

Hmm colors? original, but kinda difficult to measure =/

Like, with what i suggested, you can see an end of the bar, which is measurable with the ammount of lit up squares.
Unless you have a chart at the bottom, it'll be hard to remember what each colors strength is.

This is actually looking pretty good!
The status screen seems simple and in order!

Although, I think you should make less weaker ranks.
That's kind of saying that a level 20 Pokemon is weak (I know you don't go by levels)

Hmm... The main reason why I didn't do this was because there's no set number that you have to reach to go up a rank. For example; if the bar was 10 squares long and each square represented 5 stat points, I could increase my Atk by 50 (filling the Atk bar) - but if I haven't worked on any other stat then I won't go up a rank (resetting the bars) and my Atk could continue to grow beyond the bar.
I'll go back and brainstorm this more though
Not sure if I made much sense there, but I know what I mean I'll go back and brainstorm some more anyways.

You do have a point, so I've condensed the bottom two into one, but I'd like to keep two ranks below average to give the player time/room to grow. And also because I think it makes it seem more 'realistic' - there's thousands of trainers already out there with years of experience and to be 'average' would be like saying the player can compete with most of them - and I don't want that to happen too soon.

Puny/Fragile/Something like that
Weak
Average
Strong
Powerful
Legendary

...

Apologies for any bad grammer, have a major hangover

Well, the bars could reset every time you reach a new rank?

But if you've only filled one bar, and not trained any other stat, your rank won't go up to reset the bars anyway...

Maybe I should have a limit to how high you can raise each stat per rank? That would solve the problems, I could turn it into bars, and it'd be less complicated. Yes. I'll do that.

Ta for the help. New screenshot soon. :)

How's this? :)

I love that Eye of the Pikachu screen. Will the music continue playing outside of the laptop?

And perhaps once a stat has reached a certain point it becomes unmeasurable and the bar just turns completely red, or something?

Well I've decided to have a limit on how high a stat can go per rank, cause otherwise someone could train their Atk to be 50 times every other stat or something.
Apart from the Legendary Rank - no limits from there on.

Awesome, i think that's a great idea. :)

Now idk all the details on the laptop.
But i think it should have a battery life. Like after so long, you can't use it, andi th as to be charged at a PC or something.

Good idea.

And what about being able to store one of your Pokemon in your Laptop - like an actual portable PC? But there's only enough free memory to store one Pokemon, and switching it with one of your Party uses up the whole battery?

Er... something to think on maybe.

Meanwhile - working on the badges & case. [Can you guess the Pokemon body parts ]


Work-in-progress. Comments?

The design is cool but i think you should change the badges to something other than pokemon (that includes pieces of them)

Hmm, that sounds like a good idea.
How about at first, you can't store/retrieve any
But you'll gradually get upgrades and stuff for your laptop that allows for different things?

Like maybe you get an "old laptop" in the beggining
and through out the game you can duke it out?
More memory, better video card, more storage(memory i guess lol)
and other programs? eh?

I love the badge case, but i think you should sue actuall badges =/

Bulbasaur,charmander,squirtle,pikachu,fearow,beedrill, onix, hitmonchan, cubone, haunter?

EDIT: Just noticed there was 10 badges XD

Close. 9/10 ain't bad. It's a Pidgeotto wing.

Yep. And out of curiosity, would you just go for 8 badges to qualify for the League, or go for all 10 anyway?

You can register any item (that's usable outside of battle), and you can register up to 4 at any time.

Na, it's ok man. I'm good for now. Cheers.

More screenshots:




I would say this is the first gym, but really about 8 out of 10 gyms could be the first.

(And yes that is Brendan )

Overworld sprites kick so much ass, thanks for the screenies! They look brilliant.

Edit: Brendan is the guy with white hair. He is also a main character in pokemon games that are located in Hoenn region.

He is. He's the guy challenging the Gym Leader.

And I agree that it looks a little odd mixing the two types of overworlds...

I got so confused reading that post

Will change to one style of Overworlds.

No screens tonight, but I have been working on a feature not yet announced. You'll have to wait for the next issue of GDW to find out about it and see screens of it though.
