Pokémon: The Fae Stones

The Story


As darkness starts to envelop Kanto, the region starts to shut down. Ghost, dark and bug types have become dominant, with fewer and fewer weaker pokémon able to compete and survive. People are moving away, some towns almost completely abandoned - among those left, rumours of Silph Company's involvement are circulating. A machine, in the underground labs of Saffron City, are responsible for Kanto's nightmare. Can you employ enough powerful Pokémon to break into Saffron and uncover the truth?


Coming of age in Kanto isn't the same as it used to be - with the closing of Pallet Town's laboratory, there are no specially bred starter Pokémon to present to young teens. Instead, very few new trainers have emerged - the majority with Pokémon are older. As the Kanto Professor makes a visit to Pewter City, you are invited to attend. Over the last few years, The Rangers have become popular in towns, as they are the only defense from attacking Pokémon. The Professor can only give you so much help, the rest of it is up to you.

Befriend a partner Pokémon and rise up the ladder - with enough experience and Pokémon, you may well uncover the truth about Silph Co., as well as discovering some lost long secrets of Kanto. Your heart will lead you forward.


Features


► Introduction of the Fairy type (and appropriate re-typing of pokémon/moves).
► A departure from typical starter Pokémon.
► Changes to base stats, move pools, abilities and evolution changes.
► A repurposing of the badge system.
► A remapped and re-ordered Kanto Region.
► Pokédex rework either: altering the significance or removing entirely. Either way some Gen4-6 pokémon may be included.
► New items such as the Fae Stones (duh), Trade Stones and Pretty Stones.
► Side-quests such as The Secret Keeper. *not yet implemented in restart
► A new Berry System. *not yet implemented in restart

Magic's making a hack? :O

I like the premise behind this hack. It's completely mysterious, leaving little enough for the reader to want to know more but enough that it boasts a goal for the protagonist. I'm interested to see where this'll go.

Also, the map is good. I like the natural feel of it. Personally, I would suggest that in the inaccessible gap where the three two-tile trees are, you place something like grass. The variety is nice there, but it does catch the eye somewhat unnecessarily due to it being mostly empty.

I like how the palette came out! Hm.. didn't read much of your story, because I just look at the screenshot and I basically can see what you want to do. So, hope to see more remapped routes, towns and cities (Interior maps as well) Good luck there. I keep an eye on this one. Since only a few mods our making.

Already figured out, by stalking the old resources thread, that adding in the Fairy type will not be an issue :3. Thanks to a lovely patch by <member who's username I must double check>.

Thanks for your feedback machomuu! The mapping needs tweaking definitely, I need to add in a few more decor-type tiles as well I feel for more of a personal touch. I get your comment about that part of the map as well!

Thank you :3 I'll gradually work on a few more maps over the next few weeks. Taking this baby slowww.

You're a doll <3 I'll hit you up if anything stresses me out . Especially graphics inserting which I remember being a pain in the butt.



PROGRESS REPORT~
Spoiler:


An updated Pewter City, the actual starting town. I've condensed it down quite a bit, as originally it's quite large and open, but tried to keep the general movement of the town. I've not settled on the 'sealed' door tiles (right house). I might sprite it instead, still unsure they'll do for now though.

Your house is the nondescript one by the pokecenter, hurrah for bungalows. May be sneaky and add a basement though.

I'm loving the remakes of those maps! The storyline is quite intriguing, though I wonder how the title relates to it (other than that last sentence I guess). That's a good thing, I suppose. Good luck with this!

Ohoho~ Don't you worry, the title will be established once I sort out the starters and start scripting the first event .

I'm in the process of changing and tweaking /some/ tiles. So here is the new tree tile (other vegetation in the process of editing).

Spoiler:


Thanks for the feedback!~

I like the new trees and the bushes. I also like how the trees as placed in a way that they're not completely repetitive, and rather have some nooks and crannies about.

Hey there, Magic!

First of all, I have to say that I really like your idea!
It's very special because it just doesn't follow most hack's bases like just making a completely new region, new professor and idk what else people insert.

This is a really nice idea, Magic. It's also a nice change of pace from starting in Pallet Town and working your way through; I'm extremely interested to see where this is going to go. :3

The tiling is coming along very nicely, and the sparks of color are definitely eye-catching. It still feels a bit bare, but I'm sure that you're working on that as well. I know that I'm just a newbie at this, but from the hacks that I've played, this one stands out to me already from the unique storyline rather than--as ne0wallz said--"Hi, I'm Professor X and these are the Pokepuff Girls! Now go be the best!" type of storyline.

Thank you both~ I like switching it up a bit, although there may be some similarities between this and your typical game (mainly due to mechanics) I want to make things different and make a 'new' game.

And yes decor tiles are in the works :<.

Ooh, the Pika line as a Fairy line, I like that. I'm interested in seeing how that will affect their movesets.

Thanks to MrDoll there are a few fairy moves available, so I'll be tweaking moves accordingly.

The Pika line was chosen so it can be a parallel to the Marill line. So, in accordance, the way in which Pikachu and Marill evolve will differ slightly .

Looking forward to this. The redone Pallet town, although less significant, looks really great.

Are you good at any field in particular? Always useful to have backup to call upon! XD

Thanks I did tone Pallet Town down, since it's not the starting block I support it doesn't really matter - (its so teenyweeeeeny).

Update for the last few days:

The introduction talk is almost complete. Still hex-tweaking it to make sure it runs perfectly, though.


EDIT! Scripting is happening//

Love how the script is going! (:
Your map:
Spoiler:




You should edit those errors in block editor. It's a good map, but you got to assemble the trees correctly.

Edit: I just noticed, what's that another hero ow doing or is because just a flashback?

~Flashback!

Wow I'm quite worried about how good your eyes are to spot the tiny one-pixel of dark green XD I just assumed it was nicely shadowed - maybe I need my eyes checking! DX

Also, what do you mean by 'make sure you assemble the trees correctly'? Ty for the feedback.

I just wanted to pop in and say that this is looking great so far. Your updated tileset is miles ahead of what you were using earlier. Are you going to update the PC/ Mart/ Gym tiles as well or are you be keeping them the same?

Also, you can have the correct beginning quotation marks in the below screenshot by writing ["] instead of just "

If you need any help with absolutely anything just send me message. I'm looking forward to more of Fae's updates :P

I didn't even notice that about quotations! Daaamn.

At the moment they'll be staying the same. Gyms don't play as much of a role in these games, so they're not a priority to jazz up, really.

:D

I've edited the text box since, but I can't decide whether to go with a neutral blue or a pink, similar to the title of this thread hmmm.

I'd go with neutral blue. But when it comes to cuteness.. (lol) I'd go with pink

What help I can give you:

- Tile insertion
- Titlescreen insertion
- Mapping
- Scripting
- Sprites insertion (No, definitely not OW's)

Hmm I'll keep thinking about it :3

I've scripted the first main event now, talking place at Pewter Museum. The main things I have decided on lately:
- The scene is set in the introduction (before naming) section, as well as by speaking to NPCs/bookcases in Pewter Town. This will hopefully answer any nagging questions, but will require some effort - I don't want to sit the player down for a forced 30 line speech.
- Locked into Male Protagonist (sorry DX)
- Rather than naming your Rival, you name the Professor (somewhat of a Celebrity). I can't decide whether I want to change the default names, as 'Professor Green' is pretty funny XD.
- Your means of obtaining your first Pokemon has been decided.
- Another main story character has been decided. I don't like the term 'rival' but yeah, something similar to that.

At the moment, the only help I need is getting a suitable Jirachi OW implemented, I tried myself, and it looks fine out-of-ROM but a mess in game. XD Any help would be appreciated.

Scripting evidence! (Textbox still a WIP, Professor OW is badly done by me, and only one frame atm )
