Hi, everyone! This is my first Pokemon Fangame that I've been working on without in-classroom guidance in Unity(a 3d game development program I used for my classes for the last year), so please go easy on me. Actually, on second thought, please don't. I'd like to keep moving forward and would rather not be spared when I'm trying to improve.

The Story Thus Far
Our story takes place in the region of Tohoku, where the Pokemon Battling circuit has progressed to the point where only completing the challenges of eight gyms will no longer cut it. Now, challengers must take on at least eight of the ten established gyms and climb to the top of Mt. Tohoku, where the Pokemon League Challenge takes place over a boiling lake of lava. If that trainer can best both the Elite Four and the extreme conditions, the famous Travelling Champion Michael will land his airship to challenge the aspiring challenger to a final battle in the clouds. You are one such determined trainer, beginning their journey in the hot, wet Bamboo Forest in the northern part of the region. Who knows? Maybe you'll get lucky.

Features
These are features that I guarantee the game will have upon completion:
  • Fully 3d Pokemon game, similar to Pokemon Colosseum or XD gameplay and graphic-wise(not story-wise, though )
  • A brand-new region to explore with several unique locations such as a rain forest, a ghost town, and a massive valley.
  • A nonlinear gym storyline in which you are presented multiple times with choices as to which gym to challenge.
These are features I'd like to implement, but they take a lower priority if I lose patience with them so that I may drop them as I see fit:
  • Customizable characters.
  • Minigames.
  • Secret Bases and a Tohoku Underground(Goes along with the Multiplayer Interactions, but I thought it deserved its own spot since it'll be different and maybe a bit harder to implement.)
  • Multiplayer interactions(Something along the lines of a Union Room, but no GTS)
  • New Fakemon(I'd like to create some, but I'd rather make sure I got the real 493+ to work before that)
  • 5th Gen Pokemon(This would take priority over fakemon, but I have no guarantees that it'd happen)
Visuals
You know you just had to see them when I said the magic word "3d," didn't you? Unfortunately, they aren't much to look at right now and I'd rather get things working with dummy graphics(just a pill-shaped object as a placeholder) before I start using real models. If I find a particularly flashy part of the game that I need to work on right away, I'll be adding a screenshot as soon as possible. Everybody needs eyecandy.

It's a bit of a bland title screen right now, but I may change it before this project's through. This is by no means finalized. In fact, the logo may change before we finish.

A test of Unity's Terrain engine. It's nowhere near the same quality as what I'd use for the actual Tohoku region map, and I'm almost considering making said map as pixel art. We'll see what happens, I suppose.

I definitely will. Right now, though, I'm debating whether or not to go ahead and select a mascot Pokemon since I don't have any plans involving legendaries in the main storyline, and if I do, I'm going to avoid the whole "TITLE SCREEN LEGENDARY RAMPAGES THROUGH REGION" plot. I'm open to suggestions for the mascot at this point, and would appreciate any input in that regard.

Looks really interesting. What kind of Pokemon are you interested in making the Mascot?

I'm not entirely sure yet, to be honest. I'd prefer to steer clear of even using a legendary for the mascot because it's been done since Gold and Silver and wears a little thin on me.

After a brief discussion with Anubus, we did, in fact, decide to use Sunflora as the mascot. Expect an updated title screen in the near future.

The updated title screen:


Does anyone think that I should add sunflowers or something to the background?

Also, if for any reason you dislike any aspect of this project, please feel free to express such opinions in this thread. We aim to please with this game, and would like as many people as possible to be satisfied with it as it progresses. Negative critique is appreciated as help towards improving as much as praise is appreciated to assure that we're on the right track.

Um.. the logos are the same between my sig and the screenshots. The only difference is that the screenshots are resized because they're in a fullscreen game.

At least nothing on the visible side of things. We're working more on overall functionality than graphical side of things at the moment. (Part of that can be attributed to a lack of concept art at the moment, but I'm working on a new Tohoku map from scratch that uses a bit of a cartoony style.)

A 3d Pokémon game! sounds really nice. The story sounds cool, too. The ghost town idea killed me. I have to see it and play in it! Best of luck with it and hopefully i would like to play the demo sometime!

When you say it killed you, do you mean that positively or negatively? I can see it going either way, to be honest.

Well, visible progress at this time is kinda at a minimum. Today, though, I'd like to gather input: How would you like to see the main game menu implemented? Mouse buttons off to the side of the game window? A classic start menu sort of thing? Or something else entirely?

I really like how your project is laid out so far, I hope you really do make some good progress It'd be nice to see such a game get far into development. Creating a 3d game would be quite the task. I wish you good luck, about the menu, I always loved how the XD and Colosseum menus worked, maybe something like that? with Pokemon Bag Save and an option for a device, used for various things, like the Pokedex, and whatever you'd like to include, you should look how they animated those devices in those games, don't know if it's be possible for you, but it was pretty neat anyway, I'll stop bothering you now. Goodluck, I admire your ambition for a 3d Fan Game. :D
