    I'm sorry, but I feel like the direction you're taking for Phoenix Rising isn't the right one. It would definitely be nice to have a fangame playable on DS, and I agree with you on the notion that the computer is an inferior medium for Pokemon gaming. Despite this, making an RMXP fangame is a large undertaking in itself, what with small teams, bug fixes and the fact that developers aren't committed to it full-time like with Game Freak. To me, C++ seems like you're taking something that's already extremely difficult and taking a direction that puts more of a burden on you. I'm not doubting your ability or anything, but I feel like the game should stay on RMXP, for the sake of having a very realistic chance at finishing it in a timely manner [by Pokemon fangame standards].
