    Introduction:
    Welcome to Pokémon Sovereign of the Skies, here you can learn everything about our project, give feedback and discuss the game. Pokémon Sovereign of the Skies has a long history and nowadays we try to re-polish the project. Therefore the new version will differ A LOT from the second beta and we try our best to let it shine all in glory again.

We are glad to offer you some basic information on how our design process works and on the tools we use.
    • 1-2 Tileseter: Someone to creates tilesets, simple as that, we do not specifically require you to create your own tiles, but collaborate tiles from others in a format we can use. This includes editing them so their color and style matches the tilesets of Sovereign of the Skies.
    • 1 Scripter: For general purpose scripts, texts etc. - The project is pretty big. Being able to speak and write german and english would be appreciated.
    • 1-2 Spriter: In order to keep it original we do not solely want to rely on publicly available sprites, if you apply for this position your job would be to create sprites, basically, of NPCs, Trainers, Pokémon.
    • 2-3 Texter: People who create dialogs, creative and "lore-fitting", speaking and writing in german and english required for this position.
    • 1-2 Musicians: In cooperation with ipatix, create atmospheric music pieces to fit the game, make it feel more personal and attuning. Give power to the scenes and places the game has to offer. You do not necessarily need to understand how the games sound engine works, but keep in mind that there are, in fact, limitations on what we can implement.
    If you are interested don't hesistate to contact us, we will definitely respond, and keep in mind that we are not professionals, so you don't have to be professional. We make this game for fun, in our freetime, nobody earns money with it and in the end we want to create something for everyone, but also have fun doing so. Our E-Mail for contact: [email protected]

    Contributers will be rewarded with an honorable mention in the credits of course, as well as a place in our team (Which will also be mentioned in the credits of course)



    Story:

    The World of Sovereign of the Skies

    The Äons, Latias and Latios were always known as the guardians of Amitec. Years ago they were responsible for it to prevail, just before they vanished after a fight against Deoxys which they sent running. Their present for the world of Amitec were fragments of the soul dew, magical vessel carrying the souls of the guardians. Those kept Amitec at peace, for now at least...

    Whoever could want to disturb the tranquility of Amitec? Find out...



    Characters:

    Team Tundra:
    As soon as it was known, that Glaziera, a city far north of Amitec was not ever recovering from the eternal ice, that threatened the world after the incident, a group of locals formed and they called themselves Team Tundra. Their goal? To protect the city of Glaziera, their homeland, but soon their leader chose a different path, a path promising salvation. He soon found more than enough support and Team Tundra is now mightier than ever, and far more dangerous.

    Professor Idan:
    Your father and one of the countless professors of Amitec. He studies the incident that almost shattered the world and life outside of earth. He has help from his colleague and friend Achim, who helps with the research.

    Dr. Achim:
    Living with his family in Carun City, he is helping Professor Idan with his research, especially with space and extraterrestrial life.

    Linda:
    Your mother, who was once a gym leader, or ruin guardian which is the function of any gym leader in Amitec. She resigned to live with Idan in Hesperia, who once lived in Glaziera.

    Aaron:
    A mysterious young man, victim to a stroke of fate. What happened and what is his part of the story. Questions you will have answered, in time...

    Noah/Emma:
    Your brother/sister - You both trust each other more than anyone else.

    You will also learn about other characters as part of your story. But wether they are good, or evil, you will have to find out on your own.

    Features:
    • 801 Pokémon: including the 7th generation of Pokémon.
    • Mega Evolution and Protomorphosis: yep, they are in.
    • Unique graphics: you might have never seen those in another hack, a unique style, just for you.
    • New items: known from other generations of the game...
    • New Moves: including the 7th generation moves.
    • Physical / Special moves: like known from gen 4 and onwards.
    • Unique music: always the right track for the right scene.
    • Difficulty levels: you decide if you want us to just tell you a story, or challenge you as best as we can.
    • New Gym System: because just getting badges is boring, our gyms relate to the story of the game.
    • Catastrophies: we don't just want to have you catch pokémon, but relate to our characters, their feelings and fate, and feel it on your own.
    • Space travel: alright, we had this one for a while, but leaving earth still sounds like a goal to achieve, make it so!
    • Day & Night: time based events, atmospherical day & night as never seen before.
    • And many more...
