    Data Structures? I found them to be quiet slow as compared to 2-dimensional arrays. Besides, aren't these two the same:
    ds_grid_set(id, x, y, val);
    and
    id[x,y]=val;
    With the latter being not only faster but also less memory consuming. The only logical point to use a GM data structure is if you want to change all values in a region, which is not useful for Pokemon as well as that you can do the same with a for loop.

    Back to the topic, this game looks like it has potential. I remember playing the game that you posted on YoYoGames and I wondered how he made it so perfect. I always wanted an Emerald remake, especially in 3D. Your screens look nice as well. I also wanted to make a 3D overworld, but it just never turned out right for me. I could just never match the same angle and distance of the camera that DPPHGSS has.
