That Bulbasaur sprite looks a tad misproportianate (how that is spelled I dont even), though. I anticipate the release. :D
Thanks. Amazing stuff is on it's way
I like to keep the storyline to be gradually revealed while playing the game
Hey the Bulbasaur is awesome >:O

I could redo some tiles I did back when the old version was there.
Also,something small:'If you're reading this,you're awake.'I't's pretty obvious,innit?
Knew what?
It's there for comedy's sake

the storyline is pretty good, i like it, maybe you can add more detail to it, and the screenshots are good as well, and i like that you inserted indoor tiles, because most hacks only insert the outdoor tiles. so keep up the good work.
Thanks, those tiles took ages to insert D:

May be...may be. I'm changing the hero sprite anyway eventually.

Good luck!
Yeah, but I feel it adds a little bit of oomph to the story. The Hero's dad dies (Or does he?) on their fifth birthday, and then a decade later he sets out to find the evil big baddy Pokemon.

Decapitalization is great and sprites look nicely inserted, I'll be keeping my eye on this, GL =)

the screenshot looks nice too, nice choice of tiles and palletes..
But the bulbasaur looks weird, or is it just me..haha,
anyway good luck on this hack, i will be looking out for more..xD
No love for Bulbasaur?

But I like it nonetheless, especially the enormous hat =P. As mentioned many times through the thread the Bulbasaur sprite looks weird and the Starly backsprite looks small. Either way I have my eye on this one. Good luck.

The reason I'm using these Pokemon sprites is because I really like them, they're a nice change from the official sprites and the backsprites in B/W are much worse. Also it doesn't mean resizing so I can get through the hack a lot quicker

Love for Bulba :D

The other sprite's i meant the shuckle and starly since there is no other screenshots to view.
Yeah but the other sprites will eventually be changed

It will be, trust me, I've given up too many times before.

I would hate to see it get cancelled!

Though the other OW doesn't really match the MC (main chac)'s not outline OW, so yup, that's it, the color text are a great eye candy too, I sure hope that this will get a HoY sometime : D
Thanks, but it won't win HOTY, there are better hacks out there.

Anyway, sort of update. My exams are almost over, and the lab tiles are almost done, meaning I can resume progress! Yay!
Also, a sort of poll, but what would you like the Routes to be named as? Numbers, letters or stuff like "Banana Path"? Voting closes whenever the next update is
