      This game looks great. Good luck with it.
      btw, I LOVE what you did with the start menu. So intuitive!

          I won't include battle animations at first; however, they might eventually be included. Giving only legendaries battle animations would be pointless, as I'd have to make an animation for each move they learn. Unless by battle animations you mean animated sprites, like Crystal/Emerald/D/P/Pt? I've considered making those; however, it would increase the filesize by quite a bit, and would also mean double the amount of sprites would have to be made. It's not being ruled out altogether, though...

          Not right now, sorry. But what do you mean by graphics? Sprites, or something else?

          Yep, just RMXP. Shows what you can achieve with some scripting knowledge :P

          Thanks. I'm also working on recoding all the other menus, too; my aim is to get rid of all text-based menus altogether.

          Here's an example of what I mean:

          The controls are pretty intuitive. Pokémon are selected with the C button (equivalent to A). To switch two Pokémon, select one, then the other.

          To view a Pokémon's summary screen, select it, then press C on it again.

          To give hold items, either select Item (which brings up the items screen), choose the item, then select the Pokémon you want to hold it, or select a Pokémon without an item, and then select Item. Taking and replacing items works similarly.
          Finally, to use a field move, select the Pokémon and then select Moves. This will show the moves it can use; select one to use it. I'm planning on eventually having the Moves button show every move usable by Pokémon in your party; however, this hasn't been implemented yet.

          Any comments or suggestions?

            Seems simple enough to use. I would like a bit more confirmation of selecting a Pokémon though. In the gif where you are checking the summary, the green colour looks fine but I think you should use a highlighted green while the cursor is on that player rathen then using a highlighted blue. Should be easy to add.

            The reason I say this is, if you leave the cursor on the pokemon you selected, you have no way to know it is still selected other then the glow that appears upon select.
            So the green you have now is fine for when the cursor is not on the selected Pokémon, then lighten the green up (like you currently do with the blue) to make it more clear that the Pokémon is already selected.
            Right now I feel it's a nice graphical menu with a design flaw.

              Like the update, it looks good, very intuitive. And yes, I meant animated sprites, as in C/E/D/P/Pt.

                  Thanks for changing it Wichu. It's the little things that people will comment on when the demo comes out, and I feel I would of commented on that.
                  I like the idea of letting the graphical menu guide the player and I think if it's done right it works.
                  This looks like it works now.... Therefore done right, so good job.
                  As always, nice to see screenshots of the game. They are very rare and I hope as you go further into development they will become more frequent

                  I actually liked the other menu better.
                  I love it, the style is so smooth.
                  Nice job.

                          Is the selection screen also like this during a battle? And what should this look like during double battles? Very nice work on that selection screen.

                            Also, how many Fakemon have already been sprited?
                            About 20 fronts sprites, but only about 5 back sprites have been done. I'm going to be working on a lot sprites after my exams finish.

                            Nice job.
                            What did you like about the other one better?

                            In battle, the screen is the same, but without the Moves and Item buttons. In a double battle, you have two Pokémon at the top instead of one. That is, unless somebody comes up with a better solution (maybe a D/P-esque system?)...

                              I see... I wish I can do that too... (I think I'll plan a Platinum-esque system)

                              Oh... Are you planning a mouse-supported feature? Just curious.
                              And are you planning to make your own boxart (cover, like on DS games) for your game? I'll send the template if you want.

                                Wichu, that Pokemon you have both in your ava and sig... Is that a legendary single evo pokemon, or multiple evo Pokemon...? I must say, he's one of the most awsome Pokemon I've ever seen! (The most awsome of fakemon.)

                                  Possibly, though it is rather unnecessary, as the game will be a download... An interesting idea, though.

                                  It's a legendary Pokémon (the mascot of the game, like Giratina is for Platinum). Glad you like it (I and Lmayonaise worked hard on it) ;)

                                        You wait until I announce it, then check the first post. If there's a download link, it will always be in the first post of the thread.
