Your story begins in a small town, as a new research assistant to the local Pokémon Professor. It's not long before things become much more interesting, and your adventure will take you across a region of unparalleled beauty. The Pokémon League beckons, but it may end up being the least of your challenges: mysterious events are unfolding, and the threat just might be hiding in plain sight...

Welcome to Charpa- a region that is suffering disaster after unexplained disaster with no end in sight. Have you the bravery to discover its secrets?







~ The Game ~

Pokémon Shining Waters / Hazing Flames is a hack with a focus on exploration and adventure. The Charpa Region is huge, and better yet it feels huge: it's easy to get lost, and you'll need to keep your wits about you as you explore the scenery, discover the many secrets and work your way towards the Pokémon League.

On your journey, you will encounter a variety of old and completely new Pokémon that have never been seen before. Don't worry, though. You won't be trapped in the wilderness, running out of Repels as you're ambushed over and over by wild Pokémon. The encounter rate will be lower than the official games, as will the number of rival trainers you encounter on your journey... but each battle will be a challenge, and each victory will yield reward- sometimes money, usually something more. Many trainers will be more than happy to battle you more than once, helping you gain experience to tackle the next Gym Leader.

As you progress the story, you'll realise that there's more to Charpa than meets the eye. Deception and illusion are everywhere, and the threat is always closer than you might think. We don't want to give away the full story just yet, but you can be sure that it will be interesting and feature a variety of different characters.

Ooh, I like the heroine's OW sprite!
And you've done a nice job mashing together all those tiles.

I think if you ever wanna get anywhere, though, you should definitely spend the small amount of time it takes to learn scripting. It's not that hard, and people will rarely just come and do the scripting for you.

Thanks!
I know that this would be the logical step to make, but I'm not sure if I can manage almost everything at once. Sorry if this sounds like a lame excuse, but I don't think I have the time for learning it properly and I would rather have someone that knows what they're doing instead. Oh and I definitely tried it before, it's just that I didn't like doing it at all and I'd rather keep doing something I can do well.
I can definitely understand what you mean though.

I see this hack is still good looking. Keep it up, man!

This project looks good, fine graphics. About the Fakemon, I usually hate them but it's okay to me if they're limited and as you stated 'optional'.

This is looking really good! The tiles are perfect and i like the idea of Fakemons but
i need more information.
1.How much mapping is completed?
2.Can we see the World Map?
3.How Many gym leaders will there be? (hoping for a lot)
Good luck with the project.

Good luck with the project.
1. Can't really give a percentage, but there are 4 big towns/cities and 6 routes done, as well as one forest (which I'm gonna re-do actually, cause I don't like it). Other than that, a few test maps here and there. Might not sound like much but you have to consider the amount of detail I try to give maps in general.
Hopefully I have more time to do some more mapping soon.
2. No ingame WM yet sorry
3. Well at least 8 but I haven't decided yet. But I wanna make rematches possible, if that ends up working out. So, there will be a lot to do.

Thanks man! Haven't done that yet, but recently I've been working on a forest. If I can fix some issues I have with AM right now that should be done soon, haha. Well if I had more time I'd help but I'm busy right now :p

Well im quite picky but this is good.
I really love custom sprites (not the copy one and add new color hair or something stupid like that) like building your own sprites fakemon and storyline so this game is perfect. So far everything looks good all the fakemon look great the protagonist looks great and the maps look really great haha. Keep up the good work on this I'll be watching it

Here's a screenshot of my forest map, redone with new tiles. I think I can still work on the light effects a bit more.
Having some problems with Windows 8 ._.

Update

Hey everyone, I'm bringing you a mini update today. I tried to improve a few things in this thread here, like adding comments to screenshots and overall changing some stuff.

Also, I'm thinking about setting up a Skype group chat for people who are interested in joining the team, want to suggest ideas or just want to chat about the hack in general and ask me questions. I think this is useful seeing as the team room got removed. Simply PM me
Now here's the actual stuff I've been working on:

First, I added some more light effects to the forest grass, not sure if it's too much lol:
Spoiler:

(200% zoom)

The map is in the process of being completely revamped and re-mapped as I didn't really like the old version of it.
And here's another Fakemon that I haven't shown yet, a Yin/Yang fish duo (as one Pokemon). Thinking about making this a Water/Psychic type



That's all for now, hope you're enjoying your holidays!

How about Psychic/Dark? But it looks like a fish so I see why you want it to be water. Just that Yin and Yang are opposite of each other so just an idea i guess.

Could definitely work, but I also need more water types for the dex I'll keep your idea in mind.

It's simple: Make one of them Water/Dark and the other one Water/Psychic
Voilà

It's a duo, so both are one Pokemon. Maybe a pre-evo can be pure water. I admit it's a bit confusing
Wanted to try out a 2 in 1 concept haha.
