Introduction:

Hi, everyone! I'm The Riddler, (form. known as The Scarecrow Toxin), and after a four year long hiatus, I've started to hack again - hopefully, I will stay committed to this one and will be able to finish it. So, here goes:



Pokémon Twisted Mind
a hack of: Fire Red BPRE


Storyline:

You wake up with a headache in a gloomy cave. With no memory of how you got there, you see a cat-like Pokémon with a grin on it's face. It disappears. You rush down a lonely path to a small town – you remember – it’s your home town. You go home, finding a mysterious man by the table, talking to your mother. It all feels so surreal, when you try to help your mom fight him off, but she suddenly disappears. Nobody knows anything about your mother – like she never even existed.
But, you get a crucial hint – Your deepest desires are connected with your biggest fears. You will unlock more pieces about this incident, if you achieve your greatest dream – becoming a Pokémon champion.

The story is about finding the truth, but also overcoming the power of suggestion. Freeing yourself from the outside world and saving a loved one.
Travelling between the real world and an illusionary "wonderland", you gain answers by battling the hoodlum intruder and gaining experience.


Features:

- Explore the region of Brayos. From the grasslands, to deserts, swamps and snowlands, the advanture will never feel stale.
- Over a 100 new Pokémon to freshen up the traditional formula of the game, accompanied by several Pokémon from other 6 generations.
- Included the Fairy type and a Physical/Special split with many moves from the 4th, 5th and 6th generation.
- Overworld facelift - many of the overworlds in Brayos have been altered, making the hack looking fresher.
- Many known faces from previous regions will cross your path to help, aid and challenge you on your way.


Media:

Outro:


Initially, I posted my idea in the Beginner's Lounge, but this hack started to grow more and more. I mostly do everything by myself and I will also learn more complex scripting to accompany the visuals.

I'd be glad to see some critisicm, suggestion and support for this project.

Thank you.

Ayyy, love the fakemon on the titlescreen, looks professional. Anyways, good luck with your hack. When it says "over 100 new pokemon" does that mean its not all fakemon and its just a mix of regulars and fakemons?

Thank you! The region has about 110~ Fakemon, but I will combine them with pokemon from other regions, so it's not all fakemon and the player will be therefore more comfortable in different environments.

Thank you and nice font glow! Like said before, the hack will feature about 110~ Fakemon, but will be carefully combined with Pokemon from other regions.
As for the release - I'll try to finish everything to the first gym as soon as possible, but at the same time, I don't want to rush, so I can't really say when you can expect the first release.

I love the premise of the hack and excited to see the kind of fakemon you have to offer.

Best of luck! I hope you have success in finishing the project.

So many new hacks.. so little time.. hahahaha.. I like the mysterious feel of the story.. it seems so.. hmm.. intriguing.. anyways the story is good, the features are great, and also the tiles are good.. I haven't seen the FrontSprite of a Fakemon so I can't rate it but this seems a pretty decent hack.. good luck!

You're saying this hack will have plenty of Fakemon, alongside Pokemon from the last three generations. But will there also be Pokemon from the first three generations?

Thank you! All the fakemon I'll use (except for one) are made by neoriceisgood and because they were a bit to big I resized them( don't worry, they still look good), so If you want to see more of them, just google him.

Thank you and I'm glad you like it. I'll post more fakemon fronts and back as I progress more and insert more of the fakemon.

Thanks, graphically wise - it's going amazing and all according to plan. After that I will start to script, so I can finally show a script or two in action.

Of course Pokemon from the first three generations will be available, I just thought that way self explanatory - I corrected my first post so it's easier to understand.


Some graphical updates:
- Wanted to show the female player's overworld sprite and I chose a different house and a different palette for the player's house.
- Bidoune is also the main plain bird pokemon, like Pidgey or Tailow.
- Also wanted to show a glimpse of Route 2 and the cave tiles.



Thoughts, suggestions, support and criticism are appreciated.

Those fakemon you featured look very nice (I know that they're someone else's, but spriting them into your games looks awesome!), and I can't wait to try this out. Good luck and take your time on creating your child ^^

Yesssss I like hacks that have original storylines. Yours seems creative and I'm looking forward to seeing how the story plays out. Fan of the screenshots so far, also. I think you'll do well.
If you need any help, I'd love to help out. I want to see you go through with this and help you change it to this:

hopefully, I will stay committed to this one

I really like the screenshots! I love the tiles you're using, the OW facelifts, and the fakemon. I'm a huge fan of well sprited fakemon. The story also seems very original. I like how you're still using the Pokemon Champion formula but adding a genuine original story to it. I wish you the best of luck and I want to see this beauty finished!

Thank you so much, neoriceisgood's fakemon have always been one of my favorites. The only spriting I do are the actual backsprites.

Thank you very much. I tried to keep a semi-traditional formula of the official games, but with a twist. And thank you for offering to help me. It would be nice if and when I needed. And don't worry - I'll stay committed to it.

Thank you so much! Like I stated before, I will stay committed to this baby and I'm currently scripting the first initial script, so I'm progressing slowly, but surely.


Updates-ish?

Just wanted to show off the three starter Pokémon you'll have a choice to take with you( and the cave battle background).

Wow, this looks like a really well made game so far. I'll be keeping in tough, if you need someone to help with boxart or maybe even a userbar I can help (I use Photoshop). Also, I can help if you need someone to test for glitches, or even review your game. Best of luck!

I understand the whole cliché gotta be the champion plot, but when I read your plot it makes me interested up until the end. I just don't feel like with the events of the person that he would be more worried about being a pokemon champion rather than figuring out what's wrong. Seems like it'd be more fitting if it were based on the player trying to figure out what was going on more than anything.

Spoiler:



I got bored lol

Thank you so much! It all depends if you are interested - I mostly do things myself, but if you have the interest to do something like a usebar or a boxart, well, be my guest.

I tried to sum the story up as vaguely as I could to prevent any spoilers and for the mystery to unravel as the player progresses trough the future beta releases. The thing is, that the two opposites that you mentioned, are so tightly connected, that in the end, the player chases after only one - and it isn't the hall of fame.

And, OH MY GOD! The usebars are freaking AMAZING! I will put them in the first post ( if I may with your permissioon, of course)


Update-ish x2

I'm still currently scripting, because I suck at scripting , but I will be posting the first initial script in a few days. I can, however show a piece of what's to come.

Hoho. Can't wait for the script. I don't wanna see just exclamation point as a sample too

Also, there's a typo on your code on the first post, second user bar supporter.
