Baw no one loves me

So, moving right along here, have a look at another of Naval's new species: Egby, Cockellet, Cochinken and Gallantus!

Spoiler:


These fellas are based on the entire life cycle of a chicken, from egg to the sexually-dimorphic adult forms, with a gender-based split evo to go with it. (The two pictures of Egby are of it before and after using Shell Smash. Because it learns that at an absurdly high level.) They start out pure normal-typed and unable to fly, but gain a flying type in the final stage of evolution.

Cochinken is meant to have a stereotypical housewife/maid sort of look, with its front feathers resembling an apron and some feathers on the back resembling apron ties. It's specially-oriented in contrast to Gallantus's more physical stats, with access to Hurricane and the now-special (and signature) Egg Bomb. Gallantus is based on a cowboy (I don't remember why I thought this made sense, so don't ask), with the comb resembling a cowboy hat, and with access to with moves like Crush Claw and Brave Bird.

Part of what I wanted to do with these guys was give as much emphasis to their normal typing as to the flying, in contrast to all the birds in the canon games that are just normal as a matter of course. So not only do they learn normal-type moves suited to their concepts and designs, they're featured on the team of the region's normal-type gym leader, Blanche.

And now for something completely different! I decided to take Fire Flyy's suggestion and add a few more towns to the map. Here:

Spoiler:


*Windsor Town: A brown little town between Springbud and Honeydew. Not sure what's going to go here yet, really- I'm thinking it'll be something that becomes more useful later in the game, like a shop where you can exchange berries for stuff, or a place where you can make the local Pokeblock-equivalent. Why would you need Pokeblocks? You'll see.
*Telemagen Town: The center of Naval's arts and entertainment. It has an art museum and the TV station that manages all of those programs you can watch (listen to? read?). The main attraction is the Telemagen Amphitheatre, where you can participate in Pokemon Performances.

Pokemon Performances are a new minigame (which means more coding for me, yay) that's something like a cross between Contests and movies. Like movies, you have a script you can chose lines from, as well as prompts for Pokemon moves to the effect of "use a move to boost your stats" or "use a sound-based move". Like Contests, your Pokemon's stats and choice of moves affects audience reaction and how well you do overall. Going off script might get you a "strange ending", or it might just mess up the play and get you a bad ending. And of course, there will be participation prizes.

The little red route there is Route 25 in its shiny new temporary location. I haven't quite decided where I want it yet. >>

Welp

I bring you new things! Here we have the design for Cloveria, Cloverina and Oxalibis, the dancing flower-things!

Spoiler:


While Cloveria and Cloverina are based on clovers and, in the latter's case, Oxalibis is based on the oxalis flower, due to its leaves resembling clovers, and on capoeira. Cloveria evolves into Cloverina after a certain level if the weather is normal or sunny, but it it's raining, hailing or sandstorm...ing, it evolves into Oxalibis instead. The line has a luck theme as well, with Super Luck and Serene Grace as possible abilities (I think; I'm kinda still sorting that out :I).

Looks good! You probably based that off of Bellosom, right?

... No, actually, I wasn't thinking of Bellosom at all. XD It started out based on clovers and oxalis, and the dancing theme came in later.

I don't think I'm good enough at spriting to really do them any justice. I'm not even sure these are the final designs- I might decide later on to tweak them. But thanks XD

Apparently even college can't keep me from having way too much spare time on my hands... so I knocked together a mockup of the starter town in PSP. This is largely the sort of tiles I want to work with. Tiles from here, here, and here.



The path probably needs some work, that gap in the trees in the lower right is the result of a copy-paste error I didn't feel like fixing, and I vaguely feel it's missing something. The fence on the right is a placeholder for a gate- not a separate map route gate, but like a chain-link fence, the sort of thing you'd put up and hand a "no trespassing" sign on. Ho-oh statue is also a placeholder. I'd post this on the Map Showcase thread, but I'm not sure if you're allowed to post mockups or if it's actual maps only. So, whaddyou guys think?

... And another one, this time of Route 19, the second route you'll set foot on in this region!



I chose those grass tiles because I liked how they look (they're just edited from a Bulbapedia screenshot), but I'm not sure they go well with the other tiles. And I know most of the grass is avoidable, but since this is an earlier route I figured making it kinda easymode would be alright. Thoughts?

Hi guys. Sorry to disappoint you, but I am indeed still working on this project! Ha ha. But right now I want to wait and see what sort of new Pokemon show up in Gen 6, so I can appraise my own Fakemons and take out or change any that're too similar to existing 'mons.

At the moment the only one that seems to be a problem is Pancham versus my Sanda and Pamurai, which is an underdeveloped line I probably wouldn't feel to bad about replacing. On the other hand there's apparently a mantis/pistol shrimp just revealed, which worries me, because I like my Shrimple line, but I guess as long as newshrimp doesn't have a gimmick like Shrimple's making them visually distinct will be enough. Fennekin is different enough from both Kyubi and Sparx, and Noivern from Foxat, that I don't think I need to worry about those.

I also won't be adding any fairy type 'mons to the 'dex, which won't look too out of place anyway due to the complete lack of dragon types, so.

In other news, I'm considering removing Ruin and Dimonix from the 'dex. Not from the game, mind- they'll still exist in in-game lore and such- but they won't be catchable by the player, due to them being dead for thousands of years and all. In their place I'll be adding two more legends which have connections to Tiamit, neither of whom have pages just yet. So, like, stay tuned!
