    I just started playing it. :D I'll edit this post when I finish with pros and cons and things that need fixing.

    EDIT: It says you need to download MAXON or whatever. Why is this?

    EDIT 2: After much work and digging through files, I decided to turn off my anti-virus software and try downloading it again. Turns out my computer thinks the game is a virus. Silly computer...

    EDIT 3: The text doesn't go well with the game. It makes it seem like a different sort of RPG. I woudl consider changing it to a previous Pokemon text, because those suit this style of game very well (especially since it's Pokemon...)
    YES!!! The mom has a bed! :D I <3 you for this.
    The mother does seem short, however. I'd consider making her taller than the player, or the same height. She's like 5 pixels shorter, which is bothering me a lot.
    I resized my screen and the text looks a lot better this way. xD You should make it so it starts out this size, rather than doubled.
    The second set of stairs on the mountaint path is messed up a bit. I accidentally hit the wrong tile (the tile above the staircase) and went up and then was pushed back down. Make it so it's a face-left event only.
    I love the pokeball icons. They're so teeny tiny. :D
    I'd consider putting lighted-up windows on the other houses in Hazelseed Town. It's odd that your's is lighted up and the other two aren't.
    Dad and Phil...potential rivals? idk maybe. :D
    Could you possibly have a little gateway leading to the grove? Rather than you enter and then exit immediately. Maybe something like Oreburgh gate, but with no pokemon, and smaller. :D
    When you check the Water Pokemon, Darpole, the screen is a light red with its picture on it, rather than transparent and his picture on it.
    Could you maybe animate the water? It seems very boring and still. Idk, it looks nice though.
    Why is it that when you get your Pokemon, you're right by the door, rather than in front of the lab equipment like usual. It seems really odd.
    When you get into a battle, your little animation across the screen looks weird. You don't have a waist!. I would either fix that, or change the battle screen text box. It looks really odd without a waist.
    Love the battle backgrounds!
    Maybe make the wild pokemon on Route 1a a little weaker. Level 2 and 3 by chance?
