Intro


So a long, long time ago, when I was playing Pokemon Red for the first time, I beat Nugget Bridge. And I got offered a job at Team Rocket! And I was stoked.
And then became very disappointed when you could not actually give up your 'Pokemon Master' dream to go join a criminal organization.
So I wanted to make a game that allowed you to join Team Rocket, break the rules. Something that felt a bit different from the normal Pokemon games.

I wanted something different, and so, I tried to make it.
Thus: Rocket Rising, and I'm using RPG Maker VX Ace to make it.
Currently, there is about one and a half hours of gameplay, minimum.

Download (Rated PG-13 for Language and Implied Violence)

Version .2.5
Download the largest (with Run Time Package) if you don't have VX Ace.

Large version (with RTP): http://www.mediafire.com/download/bf96255w98ro61p/RocketRising.exe (280 mb)
Small version: http://www.mediafire.com/download/us1ouv247407011/RocketRising.rar (91 mb)

The Plot

You are in the beginning of your Pokemon Journey, and admittedly, having some trouble. You have barely won 2 badges, and just won the Nugget Bridge challenge, when everything you've worked so hard for is stripped from you.
You are left with nothing but a single Pokemon.
Team Rocket provides Pokemon, and you need Pokemon so... you join up, just for a little while, to get back on your feet.
But all this stealing and cheating gives you an edge. You start winning more, and against much stronger opponents.
You start to think... maybe there's a different path to becoming a Master of Pokemon.

Current Features

~Active Time Battle: The number of attacks you get is based on speed. This gives faster, but weaker, pokemon a fighting chance against the slower, heavy hitters.
~3 Pokemon per Battle: You can have 6 Pokemon with you, but only 3 in a battle.
~Learn skills by Using Them: Pokemon can have as many abilities as they learn, not just four, and learn them either by leveling up or by using their old ones. For example,
Thundershock will turn into Thunderbolt when used enough times. And using Thunderbolt enough times will let them learn Thunder Wave.
~Genders: You have the option to play as either a male or female character.
~No Badges: There is no badge collecting. While you may run up against Gym Leaders, it won't be as a Trainer, and it won't be for badges.
~Recruitment: After certain battles you can recruit the Trainer to become a member of Team Rocket. You may want to be careful about who you pick though.
~Cheat Items: Throughout the game you can get items that have strong effects on enemies, like instantly poisoning them, draining all their energy, or making your own Pokemon almost invulnerable to damage. These are meant to give you an unfair advantage during tough battles.
~Achievements: You get achievements for stealing Pokemon, defeating enemies, recruiting people, etc.
~Mutagen: Rarely, you will get an item called a 'Mutagen' which can mutate your Pokemon's appearance and attributes. This can give them a secondary type, so your Bulbasaur would be able to learn water-moves afterwards.
~Things Change: As you progress through the game, the more successful you become as a villain the more things will change from the original storyline. Gym leaders will notice you threatening people, your Rival will realize you're no longer a rival for the title of Pokemon Master. The more dangerous and successful you become, the more the world around you will notice and adjust accordingly.


Future Features?

~Items that will replace the HM's, along with some additions. The axe will let you get through trees,
there is a teleporter intead of Fly, a Lockpick to get you through some locked doors, Flashlights to shine through dark caves.
~The option to create new bases for Rocket across the Kanto region, and take over cities so that they are entirely ruled by Rockets.
~I'd like to do some kind of minigame/card game, though this is the lowest on my priority list.

Stuff I Need Help With

- Balancing. I want this game to have a bit of difficulty. Both in puzzles and in battles. But there's a difference between the rewarding kind of difficulty, and the frustrating kind that makes you quit. As I'm making it, it's hard to tell how far is too far.
- Fun~. It's a game, and it should be fun. That's the most important thing for a game to be. Where did you first start getting bored? What parts just weren't interesting? These are things I would very much like to know, so that I can make this a fun game.
- I need a potential use for the Pokemon Daycare.
- The Mutagen Class name. Currently, a Pikachu is a Pikachu. And a mutated Pikachu is a... Mu!Pikachu. I need a better name at some point.

Known Problems
Spoiler:
-In the "Change Formation" menu it shows the Trainer icon you started with, not the Pokemon icon. Not sure how to fix this.
- Using the "Bite" ability on a Gastly might glitch out the game. Haven't been able to recreate this yet. (Might be fixed as of .2.5?)
- Maxx, in front of Fuji's House, will glitch the game if you don't talk to him before going in.
- When using Bubble, the affected PKMN will have the antidote icon instead of a 'lowered speed' icon.
- There's no way to track how many times you've used a skill/how close you are to getting a new skill. I would like to fix this at some point.
- There may be some slowdown in the ATB bar in Silph Co. Not sure what's causing it right now.
EDIT: May only be encountered after reaching the 5th floor?? (I've unable to find this. )
- After fighting Gary in Silph Co. the battle music won't switch back to the normal battle bgm. (I forgot this one! Sorry! Still in 2.5!)
- Giving the Rocket guy a drink on the 2nd floor of the base, and then going downstairs, will trap you there.
- The police on the 7, 8, 9th floors of Silph can see through walls, and each other sometimes.
-If you are continuing a save file in ver .2.5, you may encounter a glitch when starting a Pokemon battle. There is a sign on the 1st floor of the Rocket base that will fix this for you.
- Ghost types are resistant to dark type/bite instead of weak to it. Fixed in .3.
- Route 3 (East of Pewter) may slow down your game.
-Any stat based moves (Agility, Defense Curl, etc.) may have mismatching symbols instead of +stat/-stat
-Using any item from the menu will cause the potion sound.
- Leaving through the South Saffron Gate on the way to Vermilion will freeze you. Should be fixed by next patch.
- The Beedrill in the Viridian Forest may 'run' from the battle. The battle will just stop a few turns in, without the Player winning.

Walkthrough

Main
Spoiler:

Nugget Bridge
Fairly straightforward, the Nugget Bridge acts as a small tutorial. You have to fight the five trainers, and each will give you a bit of information about the battle system. The 5th trainer has a Mankey that packs a bit more of a punch, but overall your party shouldn't have any trouble getting through these fights.
When you reach the Rocket Recruiter, he'll offer you a job with Team Rocket and, good guy that you are, your character will refuse. You agree to a battle... and get one-hit KO'ed. Your party of Pokemon gets stolen from you. And this is where you, reluctantly, agree to join Team Rocket.
Your First Mission
Congratulations, you joined Team Rocket! And got a Rattata. Which, admittedly, sucks. But hey, at least it's fast. For every turn the opponent takes, you'll usually get two. After the recruitment, you're told to go steal three Pokemon. Exit outside the Casino, and a Rocket member will give you a tip to go behind the Apartment for your first pokemon. She also tells you to deliver a vague message about Maxx choosing Lavender town.
Go behind the Apartment building, and as far left as you can, and you'll find your first battle with your brand new Rattata.
The second Pokemon you can find in the Apartment building, on the second floor. There's an old woman there with a Meowth and a Nidoran, and you can steal the Nidoran. The third, and final Pokemon, is in the house next to the Diner. There's a Rocket there who will sell you a Stolen Pokemon for 1000. Getting the money for this shouldn't be too difficult, since you can either sell the Nugget you got from Nugget Bridge, or just go next door and do the Diner Extortion Sidequest.
Go back to your Supervisor on the 4th floor of the Rocket base, and you'll get yourself a brand new, very important delivery mission.
Deliver the Package
Note: It is highly recommended for you to grab some Burn Heals from the Department Store before continuing.
Head right out of Celadon, and take the Underground Path to Lavender Town. Once you exit the Underground Path onto Route 8, you'll find it covered in trainers, most of which you can't beat. You can probably defeat the old men, and the young twins without trouble, but everyone else will stomp you flat.
In Lavender Town a guy in front of Mr. Fuji's house will take the package from you, barge into the old man's house and kidnap him. This, by the way, is Maxx. He takes Mr Fuji up Pokemon Tower, and you have to keep Officer Jenny off his back while he does. This, is the first boss battle you'll have to face.
Jenny has two Growlithe, both of whom have a nasty ember that will burn your Rattata to a crisp. Hopefully you have some Burn Heals, because otherwise this is going to hurt.
Use Rattata's speed to your advantage, and do as much damage to Jenny's team as you can while maintaining high health. They each have 105 HP, so unless you get a lucky crit it'll take a few turns to get them down to 0.
If all goes well, congratulations! You just beat your first cop.
The Tower that is not full of Angry Ghosts yet
The Pokemon Tower is oddly quiet, and most of the walk up is just you reflecting on the things you've done so far. When you reach the 6th floor you'll find a puzzle waiting for you. Each of the golden graves has a haiku on it, and a flower, branch, or leaf. You must match the plants to the grave's haiku in order to reach the 7th floor.
Spoiler:
Upper far left - Violet
Upper middle left - Leaf
Upper middle right - Magnolia
Upper far right - Chrysanthemum
Lower far left - Bramble
Lower middle left - Hellebore (winter flower)
Lower middle right - Moon Flower
Lower far right - Iris
Finish the puzzle, get to the 7th floor, and you will get yourself your second, and actually useful, Pokemon: Gastly. The trip down the tower will be full of much angrier ghosts now though. Battle through them, and at the 2nd floor you'll meet an old... friend. They will politely inquire as to why you are wearing a Rocket uniform, and you can feel free to lie to them or tell them the truth. Either way, get back to Celadon, and prepare yourself for a trip abroad and some word puzzles.
The Cipher Heaven of Cinnabar
After talking with your supervisor you'll be sent to go help with some testing on the 2nd floor of the base. There, the scientist will give you a Cell Phone to help you keep in contact (and get hints) and you get to help with testing by going to Cinnabar. You'll get a short introduction there about ciphers and how they work, in order to get into the Pokemon Mansion.
"The key is key" is solved by inputting
Spoiler:
key.

Inside the mansion, you have to flip the statue switches to get the lab parts and get into the basement. First, head straight up and take note of the bed. You can heal here if your Pokemon get low. Hit the statue just to the left of the bed, and then climb the stairs to the 2nd floor. On the second floor go up a bit to the other staircase, to reach the third floor. Hit the statue directly in front of you, go through the pathway it opens, and take the stairs down. You'll get the 1st of 4 lab parts here. Hit the statue directly in front of the staircase, go back up to the 3rd floor, and into the room that was previously blocked. Grab the lab parts, hit the statue that's next to them, go back down to the 2nd floor where the 1st lab parts were, and hit the statue there. Now, go back down to the 1st floor, use the bed to heal, and head right and then down so that you can enter the basement. Go left from the staircase into the small room, grab the third Lab Parts, and hit the statue so you can go further into the basement.
The last of the lab parts is behind a door though, blocked by the phrase "oftees hnntwa soedeh oksfmi oewnet is?". If you paid close attention to the cipher tutorial earlier, and the books around the mansion, you should be able to write it out to unscramble the sentence correctly.
If not, it translates to:
Spoiler:
"One of the two weaknesses of the mind is?"

The answer to this depends on some knowledge of the Pokemon world, or, an internet search.
Spoiler:
Either 'Ghost' or 'Bug' will get you through the door though.

And with that, the last lab part belongs to you, as well as some interesting information about Mewtwo.
Detective Redra
While waiting for the teleporter to be finished, you are told to go find clues on where one of the Lieutenants has gone. You also get yourself a Lockpick!! This lets you open doors, it's great. There are 7 clues you can find, but you only need 5 to keep going on with story things.
Spoiler:
Two are in the locked house towards the South of Celadon
The recruiter on the 4th floor of the base
The grunt on the 1st floor of the base near the boxes
The grunt outside the Pokemon Center
The guy on the date on top of Celadon Department Building
The fisherman to the left of the Casino.

Go back to the scientist, get the finished teleporter, and deliver it to the Gentleman in Saffron City. And prepare for the invasion.
Silph Co.
The teleporter room will be full of Rockets ready to go, and you will be deposited on the 3rd floor. If you go to the teleporter behind the cop on the 2nd floor, and follow the sequence of teleporting, you'll get a keycard that'll get you to higher up. On the 4th floor, blocking your access to the next keycard, is a door and a code. Trainers on the 4th, 5th and 6th floors will give you bits of information to solve the passcode. But if you're speedrunning it...
Spoiler:

The passcode is 4154

I'd recommend fighting the trainers in Silph though, as you'll get 2 stolen Pokemon for your trouble.
With your new keycard, make your way to the 7th floor! And prepare to avoid cops. Mostly just follow closely behind them and take your chance to get out of their sight. The only tricky bit is the 9th floor, where you'll have two cops moving up and down the same short hallway. Wait until you can get behind the one on the far left, follow him closely, and then run to the right (behind the other cop's back) into safety.
The 10th floor is quiet, with only a grunt who will let you buy some items off of him, and also help you back and forth from the 10th to the 1st floor if the upcoming boss battle proves too hard.
Hopefully you've been working on Gastly a bit, because you'll need its Psychic attack for this. The president's bodyguard/secretary will have two machop that will drain all your mp and hp if you let them, so you should hit them hard and fast with Gastly's psychic. If all goes well, it shouldn't be a long battle, and you'll have successfully prevented the President from escaping! Go you!
Your higher ups are very pleased, and just about to get on with the threats and plot when... your Rival shows up. You may have had the opportunity to fight him before in Lavender Town. This won't be the same type of fight though. The Lieutenant Redra will give you a fantastic Snorlax that will wipe the floor with your Rival's team, just Attack, Double Edge and Rest as needed and you shouldn't have anything to worry about.


Sidequests
Spoiler:

Fizzlesticks - On the 3rd floor of the Celadon Department Store, you'll find a kid who wants you to find something for him. It's a rare game called "Fizzlesticks" and he says he'll pay you for it. You can find the game by going through the back entrance, which will let you through once you have two stolen Pokemon. On the top floor there's a small house, and inside is the game, which in the original Pokemon was where you could find a free Eevee. Bring it back to the kid, and he'll give you 1500 for it.
Diner Extortion - The female Rocket on the second floor of the base will helpfully tell you to go shakedown the diner guy. The diner is directly south of the Game Corner. Talk to the Diner Guy, and you'll have three options available to you. You can ask for a meal (which won't work), straight up tell him to give you money, or comment on what a nice place he has.
If you tell him to give you money, he'll ask why, and you have three more options. 1) Because you're a Rocket. 2) Because you need it. 3) Because reasons. If you're playing as a Boy, the first option will net you 200. If you're playing as a Girl, the second option will get you 500. The third option won't get you anything.
If you comment on the nice place he has, he'll ask if you're threatening him. Respond No. You'll then innocently mention how being in Celadon and making the Rockets mad, might not be such a good idea, and maybe he should be a good neighbor. He coughs up 2000 for your trouble.
All of the options that get you money (except the one as a Girl that gets you 500) will prompt Erika to notice and seem bothered by it all. But she doesn't say or do anything, so walk away with your ill gotten goods, and feel good about yourself.

Oh man, thanks so much!

It's possible for the player to become a more and more important person in Team Rocket right up until endgame where
Spoiler:
they challenge Giovanni.

But there isn't exactly a concrete power structure yet. Playing as middle management, where you have authority over some people, but still have higher ups to listen to, is something I'm still thinking about on how to pull off.

What do you mean by Tournament of Rockets? Like an annual competition for grand prize, sort of thing?

If you're ever in need of inspiration, you should play Pokemon ToxicPurple. It's quite a famous hack, and for good reason. One thing I never understood however, was why when someone makes a TR game, they have the protagonist always be in uniform. No one would join Team Rocket, if things like Pokemart are forbidden. While preventing attachment is an excuse, it's not really a good one, since it implies what you're doing is wrong.

Ok so id mean like u rise through ranks thts great that u u may be leader but like they have grunt, commander, executive, admin, leader stuff like that and then theres always been an idea floating around that it would be cool if the executives had tournament annually to become a admin thats my say on it its up to u of coarse but it'd be great if we could come up with like 6-7 levels since in the anime and games theres like "sirs" "commanders" and admins and executives all having different power until u have Giovanni who has no one to report to i think this game will have great potential if the story line is great. Now if we do a tournament instead of a pokemon league we could have "admins " be like the elite four and Giovanni of coarse the champion but u would just challenge him later after u showed ur the best " admin". Idk but its sounds cool right?

As to toxic purple its pretty good i rather have it made with essentials cause hacks can only be so good and i think an undercover like a real person like Jesse and James is appropriate also maybe u could go into a Pokemart and steal stuff and maybe "accidently" drop some money or something along the lines of that or even better is a black market where u could trade with them for stuff or pay and bargain with them all these ideas are just going through my head about this great potential

Ah, Toxic Purple was fantastic. I played until the end of the Pokemon Tower in Lavender Town, and that's where it finished, if I remember right.
I wanted so badly for it to be longer.

Hmm. I think if some things aren't forbidden, it doesn't feel like you're playing a criminal.
Also it's simpler to program.

Ooh, a black market would be interesting. I'll have to think about that!

I think either a market at a rocket headquarters or a black market would be great do you think maybe there will be secret routes in your game leading through forests or tunnels to a secret rocket headquarters? Or just in a abandoned tower maybe?

Hmm, maybe. So far I guessed that the players would want to make Rocket bases in towns.
But having one tucked away in Viridian Forest, or in the island caves near Cinnabar, would be pretty neat.
A little like the secret bases from Ruby and Sapphire.

Ya kinda like that if you ever watched the anime it was always in an old warehouse or secret passages under a cottage in the forest that would be pretty cool if people would truck things to a base in viridian forest also are you planning on having the sevii islands at all with the rocket base?

Probably not. Kanto has a lot of different areas, and a lot of different maps, even without the Sevii Islands.
I'm planning on mapping Saffron next and it's just... so... big.

Hmm. I think if some things aren't forbidden, it doesn't feel like you're playing a criminal.
It's debatable, so of course, to each their own. Always wanted to make a Team Rocket version for the Game Development community, but there's always something off with a map, when trying to revamp it. Attempting to fix it was extremely exhausting, so I really am glad to see you're looking to give it a try. ToxicPurple was like the best TR game, it really was a shame it never got finished. Facing off against Red, where I'm assuming there's a chance the player can lose, would have been awesome.

Please let me know if you find any! Or anything in the gameplay that makes things less fun.
I've done my best to eliminate glitches and stuff, but figuring out which things are fun, or when things start getting boring, is really difficult from this angle.

Yeah, that's why I always liked Gold and Silver best. Everything was a bit unpredictable, from the semi-evil Rival to discovering all the different features that they included.
I liked that you never really knew where the game was going to send you, or what new thing it was going to throw at you next.

Progress:
-Going to include a small 'Detective event' in the next update where you use clues to track an important person down. About halfway done with that.
After that will be the big part: Silph Co.

-If I can figure out how to make it so that you only evolve after gaining a level, then evolution will be available.
But, the base for the mutagen system is done!
If you find a 'mutagen' item then you can mutate one of your Pokemon. This will increase its stats, and change its type slightly to balance out weaknesses it has.
Example:
Spoiler:


For Rattata, it will gain a Psychic subtype, letting it learn Psychic moves and making it no longer vulnerable to Fighting type moves.
And it stays mutated even if it evolves, so you can mutate it at any time.


I do need a better way to identify it as 'mutated' though. Mu![PokeName] doesn't roll of the tongue really, but it's not a normal Pokemon anymore either.

-Should be able to include the Lockpick too.

My bad! I'm guessing you couldn't leave the Casino?
This one should be fixed, so you can get out into Celadon: https://www.mediafire.com/?us1ouv247407011

And if you copy your save data into the main folder you shouldn't have to restart.

Did this happen when you clicked the Game.exe file? Or immediately after you extracted the folder?

Edit: You might need the RunTimePackage. It'll be a much larger file, but I can compress that quickly and upload it.
If I understand it correctly, the RTP will let you play any VX Ace games.
