    The Professor intro will be the Leaf Ceremony - a traditional coming of age ceremony where you write your name on a leaf float it out to sea on the waves for luck.

    We need to get this sorted out before we start the introduction events, as they continue directly from here.

    We already have a rough outline, so now we just need art and a story board for the sequence.

    Here is a rough idea we should work on:
    • Fade in, pale watercolor (large brush) style picture of Avana
    • Fade in story pages text on top of region image (like the Fire Red intro pages, with a region background)
    • Fade to black
    • Fade in gender selection (images of players like Platinum intro)


    • Fade out, fade in mother/professor on a watercolor beach (same style as before) background
    • Dialogue about writing your name and your sibling's name on the leaf (see this post)
    • Fade out
    • Trasitition to overworld, appear on beach in starling city having just floated your leaf
    • Begin the introduction script

    What we need to continue now is: Finalise the above outline and create a story board for it, proper dialogue (see linked post for guidelines) and text for the story pages and finally art for the various backgrounds and intro sprites.

        That reminds me, we also need to come up with a name for the Professor. She can't just stay Professor Mom forever.

        I mean, the player will probably see her as "Mum/Mom"

        As for everyone else I vote for

        Professor Salvia, Professor Violet or Professor Sorrel. Those are flowers that mean "I think of you", loyalty/devotion and affection respectively which I figure kind of fits.

          I think Salvia is good one.

            Aren't Professor names usually the common names of trees, not flowers? Or are we going to switch it up?

            Out of all of those, Professor Violet sounds the best. The other two sound weird imo. Also Salvia is commonly used to refer to the hallucinogenic plant (Salvia divinorum) so it probably doesn't have the best connotations. I'd think more people would jump to that meaning than the symbolic meaning of the flower.

            Don't think we should worry about the professor being named after a tree, we are 7 gens deep and it is boring now.

            I've always thought "plant" not specifically "tree" but you do have a point.

              I forgot that we need to include the rival in this ceremony somehow, so that they can be introduced to the player and receive a starter. We must also decide whether the rival is to be named by the player or choose a fixed name.

              We could just not. No need to introduce the entire cast in the first 10 seconds of the game :D

              Mom can just mention that she has someone else coming to visit later. By process of elimination, they'd get the last Pokemon the player and sibling didn't get. We can have it so the rival visits while you and sibling went off the meet dad. It'd be cool if you two crossed path's while you were on your way back home, and the rival mentions he just got his first Pokemon from the Professor ect.

                Well I was thinking that the rival would get the Pokemon that is strong against yours and the sibling would get the weak one, so it would make sense that the rival is there to pick that when the time comes?

                I feel like having him/her there would just ruin the entire moment and sequence. It's supposed to be an intimate moment with your mom and sibling.

                  Yeah I agree so it's up to the story people to decide how to slot the rival introduction and naming in.

                  Personally, I actually really like FBIs suggestion and it still fits logically if your sibling chooses the starter you're strong against, only the one you're weak to would remain.

                    It's not like the only starter Pokemon in the world exist in your mother's hands. It's entirely possible to introduce a rival later who has a starter 'mon that they acquired through other means.

                    Up to about line 60 is how the leaf ceremony is planned to play out, any questions/additions?

                      What happens after the curly brace (Line 58)? Does it just jump to the overworld? Unless we're doing to a quick fade (as opposed to the shrink intro sprite to OW that usually happens) that transition would feel rather jarring.

                      Also, I don't think this matters too much, but since we have both a rival and a sibling "rival" I have made the [rival] buffer point to the rival's name, and another buffer be the sibling's name (buffer 5, which was previously unused). This means for XSE you must write, \v\h05 instead of \v\h06 ([rival]) if you want to display the sibling's name.

                      Surely a fadetoblack will be enough? Can't see it being too big a deal.

                      Cheers for the heads up on the buffers, that sounds good to me.
