Thanks for all the feedback!

@AceDragonite We'll work on new names, bearing in mind the more psychological aspect of the trio and their status as parts of the soul. The concept of using Zodiac signs was a nice one, but the names aren't going to be centered around the signs, as the big thing is still their being the personification of the id, ego, and superego.

The resprites are looking much better now although the bull can probably be less rounded and slender. Maybe a more muscular build?

Also I love the idea of the trio although I can't think of any clever names to help you out with.

okay from wikipedia I can conclude that the Id represents the wants, and the drive to get it, and it lacks logic, mostly made up of selfish passion. The ego is the part of the psyche that thinks realistically and provides a voice of reason to the id. I also learned that it sets up sort of "mental defenses", so I'm guessing the ego pokemon has a high defense and Special defense stat? Finally the Super-Ego is sort of a consience and opposite to the id. From this I think the Id should be fire/ghost and it wants revenge on Julian for killing rayquazza, the ego tries to reason with both the superego and id, but is left in the backround with a sense of regret, maybe a Psychic/Ghost type as it is secluded but intelligent, while the superego is against the ego, and the three pokemon should just enjoy what they have, I think this one should stay Electric/Ghost as electric symbolizes innovative thinking. It will be hard to explain these to players of Pokemon Helio, though.

Great resprites. I agree with one of the above posters though that legendary sprites should have more elements of detail, so just a few special touches in small places on those three would really make them shine. Also, did you resprite those that quickly? Quite impressive.

I figure its about time to post some sort of update, yes?

Good. Let's begin.
Sept 10, 2010

Hello, and welcome to my first informal update. This is where I will just type in free-hand without much organization. There's a bunch of stuff I'm going to catch you up on and I really dont want to have to label everything under "character update" or "plot update" or "sprite update" or any of that. Well, not today.

First of all, to any who celebrate it, Happy Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Its the year 5771 if any of you were interested.

Secondly, I've started creating GIF support banners, the prototype of which is displayed in my signature below. I'll be making a few more of these before the demo comes out later this year. I also wanted to put a shout-out saying that possibly in Mid-October we're going to begin our beta-testing, so I may or may not be asking the general public to give us a few volunteers to beta test for us. If you are slightly interested you may send me a PM or VM telling me why you want to be a beta-tester.

Thirdly, I want to put my opinion on the new ghost trio out there. [its much better :D]

Fourthly, I want to do a character update. Now, I know i said I wouldnt do this...but...

CHARACTER UPDATE

This one's for Charlie, the Reporter.



Charlie the Reporter is one of the lower-ranked journalists for the Raven City Times. He's been sent out on a mission to the Whimbrel Gardens as of recent to find the scoop on aspiring new trainers in the area--and to possibly get an interview with Warren, the famed gym leader of Whimbrel Town.

Of course, you as the player run into him, and he gets to oversee a confrontation that you have, and he sees your Pokémon battle and is very impressed. So impressed in fact, that he decides to follow you through the Emort Region League, getting you the information on each Gym Leader prior to your battle with him/her. Of course, this now explains the stalker-dude that you find at the beginning of every gym, and Charlie the Reporter now logically takes his place.
---

Also, we'll soon be doing another sprite update, if Aquakip gets around to it, but we want to know if you guys want another Legendary update or if you want us to continue where we left off in the dex.

That's about all I have so far....WAIT....one more thing:

Spoiler:

IMAGE BY JEN-JEN-ROSE. [sure, she may have gotten Helios' hat wrong, but I could care less

I guess I'll post a sprite?


Famarin
The Salamander Pokemon
Type: Water
Ability: Soak

Famarin stray not too far from their water source, which doubles as their homes. They construct huts out of plants and mud, often in the walls of the embankments.


Tetramar
The Jabber Pokemon
Type: Water/Fighting
Ability: Soak

Tetramar are calm, peaceful Pokemon that allow nothing to puncture the serenity of their ponds. Monks often use them to aid in their enlightenment.

Famarin>>lv. 32>>Tetramar

<3 and the part fighting type evo is a definite plus for me
Keep up the good work aqua (and the rest of the Perilhelion team), and how are the revisions for the Id, Ego and Superego, coming?

I'm going off of my usual routine and shwoing you a group of sprites later in the dex...like i did last time.



Snoof
The Snow Dog Pokemon
Type: Ice
Ability: Snow Cloak/Quick Feet

Snolf like to burry in the snow and hide from people. When you get one, you better be ready for countless games of hide and seek.


Arctolf
The Snow Wolf Pokemon
Type: Ice
Ability: Snow Cloak/Quick Feet

Arctolf put others before themselves and will become a shield if necessary. They are extremely fast and good spirited.

I'm totally in love with those. The color scheme is magnificent, as well as the concept and the shapes. I hope that Arctolf will have good stats. It would definitely be in my team.

Those sprites are adorable! I will make a bee-line to the arctic section of your game once it's released.

The fur's shading is quite boring. Maybe make a fur type of shading like Arcanine.

Not really, in addition to changing its shading style to arcanine's would make it not fit in with the rest of the sprites, its current shading fits it a lot better as a cute but tough pokemon. I also just think its more visually appealing with the colors that make it up.

MOAR SPRITEZ!!!!!!!!!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Yesh. More sprites is right. Hopefully you can keep up.


Dulo
The Dust Bird Pokemon
Type: Rock/Flying
Ability: Rock Head/Keen Eye

Dulo are very common in the Deserts of Emort. They travel in huge flocks, tending to shy from their larger evolutions.


Dustern
The Dust Cloud Pokemon
Type: Rock/Flying
Ability: Rock Head/Keen Eye

Dustern are known to be extremely fast. When one sees a Dustern, it is hard to tell where it's tail begins and ends because of the dust cloud it's kicking up.


Sectravian
The Secretive Pokemon
Type: Rock/Flying
Ability: Rock Head/Keen Eye

Sectravian are rarely seen. Not much information is known about their kind except that they are extremely aggresive and territorial.

I like this game the best out of all of the games I have looked at.

I especially love Spectravian. I've always had a thing for Egyptian-like things and this is so cool! Arctolf is awesome too.

I look forward to more updates on this game, especially screenshots. After looking through the thread, I've noticed its been a while since a screenshot update.

We have, we have. And we've decided against it. You see, the Emort Region is geographically based near the Johto and Kanto landmass, and you will see many of the pokemon that exist there in our pokedex.

However, as none of the fifth generation pokemon appear anywhere in that part of the Pokemon world [those areas based on japan] it seems impractical to put any fifth gen pokemon in it.

Hopefully that answered it thoroughly.

Ooohhhh!!! Cynic likes. :cer_love: These are one of my favourites in your dex. The detail in these are much more precise than previous sprites.

Keep it up.

Alright you guys, just thought I'd pop in to let you guys know that demo work, while slower, is still progressing. We still aim for a release some time within this season, but expect it closer to december.

Also, we've finally finished all of our Fakemon! Yes, folks, all 140 Emort Region fakemon are completely sprited, and we have them in our computers just waiting to show you.

But that would ruin the fun. So we will continue to show them sparingly.

That's all i have for now, perhaps I'll do a character update tomorrow.
