Story
Spoiler:
The story of the Zhou region is one of epic proportions. The Zhou Region is the very first region inhabited by Pokemon, and therefore contains all Pokemon in existence (as of Gen 6). But there is more to the Zhou Region, and that is the Crimson Skies. The Crimson Skies is what is created when the four legendary Crimson Item's come together (the crimson staff, crimson pendant, crimson crystal and crimson tablet). The Crimson Item's are used to make the Crimson Skies, which is a dimensional rift that brought all Pokemon to the world. The Crimson Skies are even said to be the true origin of Arceus.

When the Crimson Skies are summoned, many legendary Pokemon appear out of the dimension rift. The legend's of the Crimson Skies are well known, and some truly fear the Crimson Skies. But other people believe that the Crimson Skies aren't real, and are just an urban legend. However, your grandfather Viktor knows the truth about the Crimson Skies and the threat they pose to everyday existence. He, along with other people who have knowledge of the truth, form a council that dedicates their lives to protecting the Crimson Item's, along with the Sacred Temple's of the Zhou Region. They are known as the Temple Guardian's.

However, the leader of Team Crimson also knows the truth about the Crimson Skies. His goal is to obtain all the Crimson Item's, and strike fear into the world with them. He desires to open the Crimson Skies, and to attempt to control all the most powerful legendaries.

You and your grandfather, along with your Rival, witness the Crimson Crystal being stolen by Team Crimson. After this, your grandfather sends you on a journey with the new Pokemon he just gave you (Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile), along with your Pokegear, to go to the other Sacred Temple's of the Zhou Region and meet the Temple Guardian's. He warns you to watch out for Team Crimson, as they will definitely be encountered on the way. He knows what they are after, and he entrusts you to stop them.


Features
Spoiler:
  • All 721 Pokemon will be obtainable
  • A new region to explore
  • 8 New Gym Leader's, and a new Elite Four
  • Interesting Gym Locations (instead of them all being in a town)
  • An interesting storyline full of suspense and mystery
  • Challenging battles
  • Interactable Non-Legendary Pokemon (usually one per area)
  • Hopefully more to come


Current Progress
Spoiler:
The game is coming along well, but still has a long way to go. I would say about 50-70% of the mapping is done (I'm trying to make a well-mapped, big region to explore), and the game is currently 6 Gym's long.


Screenshots

Demo
Spoiler:
Main Download:https://mega.nz/#!mdF2ACrT!SIzTts8-F...IfozHG6nEiWikU
Patch:https://mega.nz/#!7EEFVRQD!cUBlUh3oh...C6UUXS3eykwFcA
Download the Patch if you want to fix the error when trying to erase an old move for a new one, and the error with catching Pokemon. Also fixed Pokedex and Fairy-type move button, and Fletchinder not evolving.


Want to help?
I could definitely use a hand or two in making this game. What I really need is a spriter, but I am willing to take help from anyone who can offer me their time. Send me a PM.

The storyline sounds nice but a few things are missing.

What is the other thing the player does throughout the story? Gym battles, Elite four, collect the Crimson items?

Starters?

Something else just slipped my mind. But, the storyline is nice. I hope to see this game develop!

I updated the thread with the information that was missing. The player does do Gym Battles and there is a new Elite Four. The player is trying to stop Team Crimson from collecting the Crimson Item's. The Starters are Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile. I decided to pick them because they are all mono-type starters, which I prefer.

Thanks for the support, and I think I'll also upload a demo shortly. I just want to touch up a few things before I do. There seems to be a lag issue in Pokemon Essentials V14 while walking in the overworld, so I'll probably just upload a demo from my V13 version, although animations are glitchy in that version.

EDIT: I've decided to post a Demo with the V13 of Pokemon Essentials. I hope you all enjoy it, and please give me some opinions on it.

If so if put it in features and im happy ur hoping to get custom sprites cause games always look better and more authentic with them.
Good luck with this and if u need a beta tester id be happy to on this or next demo

The storyline is quite good, mapping is very nice and nintendo-ish like, but imo you should try adding shadows to the buildings and you can also use semi transparent function provided in RMXP, also try adding some more features, cuz that is what attracts people, but even without that, its a pretty cool project, goodluck !

Yeah, I have taken a lot of breaks on this game. I've been working on it since 2009 now, although I barely touched it much between 2010-2013. Lol you are kind of right about me saying Crimson Skies too much.

I do want to have Mega Evolution's, I'm not sure if there are any 4th gen type sprites for them yet though. I'm assuming not. But I would like to have Mega Evolution's, including the OR/AS mega's. And yeah, I'm definitely hoping to find a spriter for my game. That is one of the main reasons that I made this thread, to help find a spriter.

You could always play the demo if you want to test it for me. I would like to hear the feedback of how you like playing through it.

I'll see what I can do about shadows, and I'll look into the semi transparent function also. I plan to have some custom features, but for now I am just focusing on mapping. I need to finish mapping my full region out, which is a lot of work. Thanks for the advice though.

Okay guys so I have a request from anyone who wants to help me, I am looking to recolor these tiles nicely and it would be amazing if I could get some help to get them done nicely. Credits go to Hek El Grande for the Reshiram/Zekrom walls and the other person who made the rest of the tiles. Also I could use some help with Groudon/Kyogre walls and Xernas/Yveltal walls. Post or message me if you can help on any of this.

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/b...pleTileset.png

Oh, and I am hoping to get the recolors looking similar to the temple hosts. For example for the Reshiram/Zekrom temple, the main colors used should be Black and White. For the Kyogre/Groudon temple, the main colors should be Blue/Red. Just message me or post, like I said earlier.

Here to show off the newest screenshot of my game Crimson Skies, this is the entrance to the Ying-Yang temple. Credits to fashayshay for the recolor and hek_el_grande for the Reshiram/Zekrom walls (I also need help getting Groudon/Kyogre walls, and Xerneas/Yveltal walls, so if you want to help message me)

Wow, this game is looking good so far (It's got a demo, even!). Can't wait to see what the full game has in store for us!

Once I learn how to use my keyboard to record music to my music program of choice, I could try my hand at making custom tracks for the game.

Hey guys, just wanted to say that I am still working on the game and that the progress is coming along great. Here is the current region map (all labeled areas are fully mapped):

Spoiler:


Like I said, I fully mapped all those labeled areas. I prefer to take make my Region Map as I go along mapping my game, rather than predetermine the whole region setup, so expect the map to be fully filled by the time the game is completed. As of now the game is four gyms long, so expect at least double the amount of maps!

Also just wanted to say that I really do still need help from some spriter's for my game. I need some custom matching OW/Trainer Battle sprites the most, and probably a few other things that I can't think of off the top of my head right now. Anyways, message me if you want to help, or add my skype Florio_13 (the one from Canada).

Also want to show you guys the newest graphics that I have received, credits go to Sam24 for making them for me. I really appreciate it bro. So check it out guys.

Just downloaded this today, and it's pretty good. One thing that does get me though is the Eevees are virtually impossible to catch, I mean there was one, a level 4, couldn't have been on more than a couple of hp, and paralysed, and it still broke out of three pokeballs before I gave up and just beat it.

Thanks, and I'll increase Eevee's catch rate for the next demo. Eevee has a pretty low catch rate, but since I added it early in the game, it only makes sense to increase it.

Here is a new video of the Mega Ring scene I have been working on, be warned as it does contain some spoilers. There are no major spoilers, only revelations of the Crimson Skies and some other minor things. The video has a pretty nice dialogue and a cutscene too, with cool music.

Just another update, the beta is almost ready, I just need to get a few things first (mainly the gen 6 pack that is coming soon). Here is a sneak peek video of some of the new stuff coming in my game including the brand new tournament mode (the tournament mode needs to be updated soon, going to keep Kanto leaders only and replace the other ones with my own sets), the random prize starter Pokemon for winning the Tournament, the new IV screen, the Shinyizer and IV Randomizer (credits to Dekay), Cycling Road and the location of Sharpedonite.

Since I am waiting for the Gen 6 Pack anyways, I decided to add some Hidden Grottos to my game! They will not be your typical Grotto, as they have special eggs in them. To see exactly how the grotto works, read the description on the youtube video.

Hmmm, I...I could have sworn I made that PWT script, and the scripts for that Battle System. Nah...I must be confusing them with something else, since I clearly didn't do any of those because I'm clearly not in the credits list. If giving credits is a hassle due to our, rather delicate, relationship: no problem man! You can always not use my work, and then not give any credit.

I'll download the game and provide you with all my "opinions/constructive criticism" in a bit. Luv ya! :*

I updated the credits, didn't mean to leave you out on purpose. And might as well wait to download since I need to fix an error with learning new moves.
