    Nice new screens.
    Im really liking your games tiles.
    The only thing i don like is how big the screens are and how they have a sort of blur look.
    Which emulator do you use? VBA is the best or are you taking print scan of them if you are try using the scren capture option on the emulator.
    Just for better quality.

      She is using VBA, but is probably taing screens with Ctrl + PrtScr.
      There is an option in VBA which takes screenshots.

        Those new screenies are nice
        Pichu's back is nice with that ribbon but what I don't get is the difference between Pichu one and Pichu two xD

          Sorry to say, but you are using quite a few tiles that are off-limits. I don't want to sound like an ass, but Kyledove does have some off-limit tiles. Apart from that, this game looks awesome. Tiles, OWs, and the general idea is nice. Keep it up.

          Off-limit tiles? *is puzzled, since I got most of those Kyledove tiles from this site (which seems to exist only in cache form at the moment) where they were implied to be "free"* The other tiles, not counting the ones made by me, were made by WesleyFG (also from the site above) and Saurov (from here), as labelled in the first post. Other places where I may have found tiles were on this forum or Google Image Search over the years, or the Spriter's Resource, where I could have picked up things that may not have been free along with the free stuff, without even knowing it...now I feel like a criminal

          I really wasn't intending to be a thief and I don't want to remain one...can I be shown the off-limit tiles so I can remove them?

            Yeah, that site has a history of stealing tiles. Any tiles on this set are off-limits.

            Thanks so much! ^__^ I thought the site above was affiliated with Kyledove and WesleyFG for some reason, and I didn't realize at all that they were hosting the tiles without permission and that we weren't allowed to use them. I'll fix this right away and will post new screenshots with the off limit tiles removed - thank you again for letting me know!

              Yeah, I know. Sorry if I sounded like an ass, but if he wanted to be an ass, he could have sued you...and you don't want that, do you? I know it must be a downer to have to replace those tiles, but it'll look fine without 'em. ^-^
              I forgot to mention that everything looks great. I love the way you combined the trees in your maps. ;D

                umm no. you are very wrong there could be no sueing by anyone but nintendo and/or gamefreak. im sorry that you dont know this but if money was involved in hacks (SUCH AS SUEING SOMEONE OVER IT) nintendo and/or gamefreak would sue both people for reselling their products. and yes i understand that those were probly costom tiles but they would only work in a pokemon game (i do believe)

                anyway this hack looks amazing! I love the new attack! and the scarf but I was woundering if you pick what would be the female player is the scarf pink or red insted of blue?

                Nah, you didn't sound like an ass at all It was something important that I needed to know, so no worries

                And thanks for the compliment, I appreciate it New screenshots with the offending tiles removed; and showing some new scripts, should be up tomorrow or the next day (And I'll use the VBA Screenshot function to take them this time, not PrtSc! XD )

                @PatJamma I'm pretty sure the sue comment was a joke XD As for our Pichu hero, he can only be a hero, and not a heroine (since there really isn't any way to have the game give you a pokemon of the same gender every time unless it always has a set gender - and I figured that would be easiest for everyone concerned, especially me, to simply set a gender XD ). The intro simply shows you your player character in two different poses (coloring, scarf, everything is the same except the pose - even the default name options) and asks "which picture you like better" rather than "are you a boy or a girl."

                (...Though now that I think about it, I could simply edit another pokemon to be a clone of the player Pichu - similar palette, same base stats, same movesets, same in every way except that it's always female...and doesn't have a Pichu's cry ' If I was any better at hacking the cries and having them sound good and not like staticky messes that glitch things up, I might entertain this idea...but for now, I think I'll leave things the same ' )

                  These visuals are quite impressive and those portraits too.
                  I loved rescue rangers and this is looking even better than it.
                  Can't wait to see a release, Since I haven't played this type of hack since RR.

                    I am really enjoying all these new PMD style hacks! Since I can't hack for anybody's frogs, I think I may make a PMD style game in RPG Maker XP! May I suggest for that first route on there, using a HG/SS style grass? It would look smoother in a PMD game than just random tufts of grass. Anyway, I'm really enjoying this so far! :D

                      Massive update of massive destiny!

                      First things first - I took care of the tile problem, and have replaced all screenshots depicting them (...I think... ' ) with new ones. Not 100% pleased with that log tile, but I'm not going to worry about it too much for now...


                      It's Log! It's Log! It's big, it's heavy, it's wood! It's Log! It's Log! But is it bad or good?

                      Second things second: If there's one thing a Pichu isn't...it's a Trainer. Behold - the new "Hero Data" card!


                      That spot in the middle is where the Pokedex would go...but since you never get a Pokedex, it just sits there and takes up space. XD Anyway...I found, much to my displeasure, that there is no way to eliminate the accumulation of money from the game - you can't have a "Trainer" give you nothing for defeating them. So what I did was replace the money with "Rocks" you end up collecting throughout the game. For now, they're completely useless. But you'll need to have a certain number to beat the game...

                      And as long as we're talking gimmicks...


                      Of course, a Pachirisu knows all about squirreling things away XD How do you go about it? Well...that bush in the corner, and all bushes that look like that one, functions similar to the PC in traditional Pokemon games. You can go up to it and stuff items in it, and also take a breather there and "arrange your team." Team Arranging is where - once you get six partners or more - you can decide who is on active duty (is available to battle with) and who is "on reserve" (still travelling with you, but not available to battle). Being on reserve will not prevent a character from popping up on the overworld, and putting "yourself" on reserve obviously won't suddenly put a halt to your adventure XD You're still journeying and travelling, just...not battling XD

                      (As for how items you put in one bush manage to be in every bush you talk to - I dunno. There's a Mew in there that teleports em. Or something. Acceptable break from reality XD ).


                      And now, third things third...story progression! XD I'd make another video and show it in action if I could, but the computer I'm currently using is a junk heap, and my good computer has no net access at the moment ' Only major scripts will be discussed here and later; smaller scripts, or major ones that would be spoiler-iffic, won't be shown.


                      Not a major script at all, but is being shown simply as an example of what "Trainer" battles will be like. XD Right on the first Route, you're expected to battle. These Spearows are blocking off access to Pikpik Grove up ahead...and won't budge unless you make them. But what is that like?


                      Well, it starts out a bit like this...


                      And is like this in the middle. XD They fly away after you defeat them and you're able to enter Pikpik Grove, only to find Spearow blocking off the exits - Spearow unwilling to battle.


                      "Beat it, ribbon boy!"


                      Enter one of the trees and you'll find Rega, the Ledyba elder of Pikpik Grove. He gives exposition and is surprised you managed to fight some of the brutes off.


                      Freya, the Pidgeotto, enters Rega's tree and is none too polite. Later on, she joins your group as a team mate, but for now, she's an angry bird with bad grammar who wants something that Rega has. Why is she angry, why does she have bad grammar and why does she want it? Alas...t'would be very spoilery (much more so than the few characters I did discuss XD ) if I were to reveal her backstory...

                      And when she says "pretty round thing," she doesn't mean the bush. XD


                      Rega doesn't take it sitting down. He leaps over the bush and goes to confront this brazen bird, wondering why she has to bother him rather than that idiot Pachirisu who lives on the first route who has a whole nest full of those "round things." She explains that Rega's "round thing" is special - it's heavy. Freya seems to know what these objects are actually for...


                      Freya attacks Rega, steals the "round thing" and makes her escape. Rega doesn't look too good...will he make it?

                            The storyline is pretty interesting.
                            The updates are cool.
                            That Pidgetto has pretty awful grammar...

                            The Raikou OW could use a little work.
                            You should expand the OW's size so that you could add its whole 32x32 OW in it.
                            I recommend using OW Changer.
                            The best tool at changing the OW's size.

                                My brother will surely be mad about that Pidgeotto. xD

                                Anyways, g'luck~

                                  XD Her grammar is awful on purpose, and it's actually plot relevant why she (and at least one other pokemon you meet) speak so poorly. Trust me, this isn't going to be one of those hacks riddled with spelling and grammar errors every which way...my perfectionist streak wouldn't allow it '

                                  As for Raikou, that sprite was inserted a while back when I was entertaining the idea of putting in HGSS sprites as well as PMD sprites, or eventually instead of them - the Raikou was basically copied from one of the pre-release HGSS screenshots and inserted. But now that you mention that it needs some work...I can see how out of of place it is, with everything else PMD-style. I'll get it's 32x32 PMD sprite and get to work on that Thanks for the comments!

                                  @TheSmell: Thanks so much for the congratulations! Trust me, I was surprised to see I was Hack of the Week winner myself ' Anyway, do I take from your excitement that the log tile isn't so bad, or that you just liked that I quoted Ren and Stimpy? =P Or both? XD

                                  @Patjamma: That suggestion is awesome XD Since most items have been replaced by unplantable berries anyway (for example, a Potion is now called a "Lechuk Berry"), and berries grow on trees, or at least on bushes...being able to go into random trees on routes for item scouting sounds like a clever idea Or at the very least, I could have going up to overworld trees and "talking to them" be how you get some items in the first place.

                                  @ destinedjagold and @Neo-Wolf Thanks! ^__^ Comments - both good and constructive-critty - and compliments are why I keep going with this
