Okay guys, I'm here with another fangame idea. But this one is different. As far as I know, what I am thinking of hasn't been seen in a game. I am planning to make this, as I am slowly and unstably learning how to use RPG Maker XP, and as soon as I know enough, you can bet I'll be attempting to make this.

It's basically creating a whole game out of one teensy little event way back from Pokemon Red and Blue:




Pokemon: Alternating Vision
****** title subject to change

An imaginative cross between Pokemon Mystery Dungeon and the main Pokemon Series

Plot
This is where it gets juicy.



Okay, here we go -
You are currently an assistant of the renown Bill - creator of the PC pertinent in every mainstream Pokemon game. He is once again experimenting with teleportation, and is extremely confident that his research will result in success. As he is manning the controls, you enter the teleportation cubicle in his place. In the other, an Eevee.
And oh looky, it failed horribly. It seems that you have now merged DNA with Eevee, and you are now a Pokemon (Eevee). Congratulations, I'm so proud.

Bill agrees to change you back, but before you can say anything else Team Rocket barges in and kidnaps Bill. You can't stay and wait, so you venture out into the world in order to revert back to your normal self and save Bill from the treacherous hands of Team Rocket. aaaand scene!

Chapters
Because I like books

Chapter One: Teleportation Against Nature
Chapter Two: Into the Unknown
Chapter Three: Captured
Chapter Four: Inside the PC
Chapter Five: Release
Chapter Six: Side Effects
Chapter Seven: The Challenge
Chapter Eight: Inside Enemy Lines
Chapter Nine: Target in Sight
Chapter Ten: Glitch Fix

Starter Pokemon
There's no choice, so shut up and deal with it


Ah, Eevee. I like it. Bill choose Eevee as his second test subject. It his favorite, and he gives it to trainers he deems worthy. But you get one differently, in a sense.
Eevee will have changed stats to make it more powerful, or a more versatile moveset (whichever fits better).
More will be revealed later, and you won't complain about getting Eevee and crap I realized it's similar to Super Pokemon Eevee Edition

Pokedex
Wait - let me explain

You won't get this for a long time. Well, not really, but you won't have it when you're a Pokemon, at least. Not saying any more without giving spoilers. Subject to change, still deciding whether or not to use fakemon.



Gym Leaders
Yes, I was meant to write this

You will also battle Gym Leaders. You may be thinking something along the lines of "you're a Pokemon. You can't battle Gym's." Well. You're right. I'll add more later.

Flora
Grass Gym
Rose Badge
Flora is the first Gym Leader of this region, and cares deeply about the environment. She is active in protests and is the caretaker of the large garden in her town. She gets rather cocky when versing trainers, as the novices approach her when beginning Gym Battles.

Medile
Poison Gym
Virus Badge
Medile is the Gym Leader for her town. She is in her early twenties and her divorced parents run the town's hospital. She enjoys researching medicine, and aspires to use her Pokemon's poison to aid medical research. She considers herself a matchmaker, and likes to set people up on dates - she is responsible for finding each one of her Gym Trainers a spouse.


Wondo
Fighting Gym
??? Badge
Description pending


Jet
Flying Gym
??? Badge
Description Pending


Stella
Steel Gym
??? Badge
Description Pending


No name yet
Dragon Gym
??? Badge
Description Pending


No name yet
??? Badge
Description Pending


Yasmin
??? Badge
Yasmin is the youngest leader, but also the toughest. She uses her age to lure opponents into a false sense of security before releasing her full potential. Her tough demeanor comes from her mother - the toughest of the Elite Four. Yasmin enjoys studying psychology, and uses what she learns to predict what happens in battles.


Trainers
They like you

Well, you're a rare Pokemon. With no trainer. Approach one, and they will most probably try to catch you. But so you aren't battling five Pokemon, the trainers will have less Pokemon or be under-leveled. If you do get caught, you have to start from the last save point, so don't get caught.

The Current Team
You know what this means

Impo - Founder, Mapper, Ideas, everything as soon as I learn

I am currently looking for people to help me with this game. Even if they just tell me how to do stuff I would be appreciated, so just send me a PM because I could use help with everything.

I'm currently desperate for scripts and events, so if anyone would like to help me (even just telling me how to do it) would be greatly appreciated.

Credits
I'm tired of typing now

Poccils and Flameguru - Pokemon Essential Starter Kit.
Abnegation - For his tutorial, livestream and overall help, greatly appreciated.

---

I think that's it for now. Oh, I'll add some features and stuff later. I guess one thing I'll mention is that the game will have a talking you. I plan to give it a kind of humor similar to the kind I used in this first post here. Comments, critique and anything is appreciated. Thanks!

While the idea is different, I'm not a fan of the whole "person turning into a pokemon" idea. Sorry Impo :[

That's fine, Rossay, thank you for the honest opinion :) !

...I did explain practically all of that, but...

Eevee is Bill's signature Pokemon, and he hands them out in games and stuff.
The first thing I noted when saying it was eevee is that I'll change the moveset and add move the stats around, so It'll be more powerful and the game will be at an easier (but still enjoyable) level.

And lastly, yes, it is like a PMD game, it's meant to be a cross between the two. I've always liked PMD, so I thought I'd add a touch of it to a fangame.

I'm always open to ideas, so if you have a suggestion to Eevee's replacement then please tell me :) !

Wow. I really like this. If I say "Yes, I like this game idea" it would be a large understatement. This is genius. My most specific comment would be I especially liked Chapter part, I love the cliffhanger feel of it. My only advice is since it IS an eevee-based game, you may want to consider adding more evolutions to the mix. My question is will this be played on the Kanto map we all know and love, or will the region be tweaked and/or all new? Either is fine. My criticism is... ha! NONE! I will definitely be checking for updates and releases.

EDIT:ˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇ
To next comment I say YAY! (y'know, in general)
ˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇ

Aw, that was flattering! Thank you!

And yes, Eevee won't just be a plain Eevee for long. It's quite versatile, really.
And I was thinking of a whole new region, so I can adapt it to the PMD side of the game.

I see what you mean, but I'd prefer to go with Eevee. You're not going to be Eevee the whole game - I'm planning to make it so you can go back to trainer form and catch and create a team of your own. Just for the main story you will mostly be Eevee and something else.

lol @ the idea of Eevee and its evolutions being terrible Pokemon. There's a reason several of them have played major roles in competitive Pokemon since the beginning. Eevee is a good Pokemon that offers a lot of variety when it comes to evolution. It is a bit cliched to use it though but I think it's good as a starter.

...yeah, I was wondering why such a versatile Pokemon was "bad".

I love the idea of an Eevee based game, it means Vaporeon (it does mean Vaporeon right...)

(eye twitches)

I love the idea of a game that is part PMD and part not, I'll sure play it (assuming my Mac lets me).

Yay!

Also, I've been making maps, so I thought I'd share some minuscule progress:

Town 1


And the pokedex

The map looks nice, though it looks like it's missing some flowers or something though.

Haha, thank you! And yeah, I didn't have the tiles for stairs, so I thought I'd leave them out for now. I might add a little background on the little town, if people like.

Nah, it's okay, turns out I just overlooked them xD

Rivals



So, like any other Pokemon game, you will have rivals. You will have rivals who are pokemon and rivals who are people. How nice, I gave you variety.


Clefairy

Clefairy was Bill's initial test subject before Eevee, but it escaped by creating a hole in the wall of the lab. When you turn into Eevee, you notice the old escape route and follow it straight to her. She is very understanding, and helps you adapt to your life as a Pokemon. You have a friendly rivalry with Clefairy, and you both get competitive towards each other.


Detective Trucole

Detective Trucole is the man in charge of Bill's Kidnapping Case. He has only taken the case so he can accumulate a reputation for taking down Team Rocket - he doesn't care what happens to his clients. When he sees you he disregards you as a liability, but your transition between human Pokemon gives you a greater knowledge, and it frustrates him. He tries to keep his discoveries away from you, despite that your the key witness.

Final Team

Wow. the progress o this game is faster than I thought it would be. Five more posts and maps and a pokedex overnight! The 'Dex has 200 pokemon right? Nice choise (yay aggron)! Also, I like your choise in rivals. you should probably add a spoiler that shows then on the firse post (because thats the only post most people look at). Although I don't understand what you meant by "Final Team." Other than that this seems like this is going awsome!!!

Thank you!
It's not much progress, just some information.

And I should, will do!
Final team means the team he will have at the end of the game. (I can't be bothered listing it through the stages)

Haha, thank you! And look above for the explanation.

Just a small update, off the top of my head. I'll edit it.
In the first post
