My scripter notified me someone had a game with the same name.. XD
You'll probably need to change it to move it into the Game Dev Forum.
All I can say is that you'll need to learn how to make graphics. I suggest pixel art, it's fairly easy after you do it often.
Besides that, you'll need a story to go any further.

Good luck.

This is Mt. Alpha, which later in the game is where you catch the game's legendary

1. You will see your Rival standing near these two fossils. He will get the one you dont get. They are both rock/ground types. He'll battle you after that!

2. Camper Lucas and Hiker Bob's Tent. They each give you an item Bob = Everstone. Lucas = Nugget.

3. Secret Tyre Entrance Locked Now

Nearly done starter sprites! C U

Story Plot:
You are an 11 year old trainer and for your birthday you get a pokemon from the prof. He will give you and your friend a choice of one each.

Grass = Pigletty the Tiny Piglett Pokemon
Water = Clamilly the Oyster Clam Pokemon
Fire = Turtcluster the Ember Turtle Pokemon

After getting one you go home and fall asleep on the couch. Then you dream about a future event of you being watched by two people. The one in white claims that they are the good one called Team Lightness and the one in black says that they will take over the world and they are team Darkness. They aproach you then the title screen starts up.

Don't get mad at me for this, but you're graphics are, well, unprofessional.

I'm not a good artist either, but you might want to stick to mapping or something else instead of making graphics, because like I said before, you're graphics aren't very good.

All CC aside, your game could be very good if you're devoted to making it. You can improve your game further by making a better plot. You have an endless number of possibilities for your story!

This is ornamental forest.

2. Techical Machine Grass Knot

3. After getting badge 3 and HM Cut obtain the hidden TM Swords Dance

You 2nd and 3rd Pokemon look like Gastly and Umbreon. Are they supposed to be related to them in some way?

For once a 11 year old without an attitude!! -shudders at a certain thought of one-

You seem pretty up to it. I'll tell you this - many people here on the forum will not finish their game. So PLEASE don't let the difficulty drive you crazy. Some people try for one week hoping it will be a revolution and then give up becasuse.. well.. usually, they don't have time or just are too lazy and can't be very observant to such errors in the games.

If you complete it.. THAT would be a revolution. XD Please try your hardest!
I'm glad you know how to accept critique. I look forward to seeing where you'll get!

Just adding onto what Nyu here said.

The best way to learn is often by doing. When I had my first attempt to make a game, it was pretty bad, but I got most of the way through it before I looked back on it to see how bad it was. I then stopped and tried to join higher quality projects (all failed, but I learned quite a bit from them). They were great for me. I learned so much from the experiences.

Like Nyu said, most games will not be completed. But here's my suggestion for you: Try to finish this project. Do everything by yourself, and learn. When starting a new part of development, you should ask questions on if you are going about doing it right.

For your "Flute" item:

I think you should have sharply raise the Att. and Sp. Att. of your Pokemon and harshly lower the Def. and Sp. Def. of your Pokemon, because if it lowers the stats of the opponent, then that would be incredibly cheap.

You know what I like about this game, though? You have determination. You're taking the CC very well, unlike some other game makers. (I used to be of those myself, BTW)

What I expect is for this game to hopefully make it to a release.

Again, good luck on your project!
