Hello everyone! Hope everybody is having a good day.

So, I have this concept that id love to develop. But I am nor a mapper, script or anything, would love to get a team toguether to get this idea to become a reality. I feel this is a Concept that would be doable through text changes and cutscenes without breaking the formula.

The concept is this, the story takes place after you beat the elite four (If there is a script to choose your character from each gen would be amazing, if not lets say is gen 3 boy/girl).

The opening text instead of inviting you to the world of Pokemon, it's a letter from DR. Willis(Name TBD) inviting you to the Pokemon world Championship at PCI(Pokemon Championship Island) where through it's tournament will determine the best Pokemon Trainer in the world.

PCI would work as our Region, Split into 8 areas(each area split in two also) with wildly different climates. Man made to tailor every single type of pokemon in the world, a "best of the best" pokemon Region.

Every pokemon Champion, every Gym Leader, Every battle frontier contestant would be invited. The tournament would work as follows:

The contestants would start in the outer rim of the island There is a train that allows them to transport to any of the 8 areas. The objective is to get to the center of the island where a elimination/gauntlet tournament would be held. The only thing is, instead of a starter (since it's a tournament and you couldnt get enought copies of a pokemon for that ammount of people) before you reach the train station you go through the safari zone to get your first pokemon.

At the halfway point of each area there is a door blocking the way that can only be opened after beating each guardian (first 8 gyms).

Each Guardian would indeed have a theme but it wouldnt be type based. (One Guardian could have all turtle pokemon, another could have only objects that are pokemon, that way there is not an easy way to defeat them.) and instead of the gym goonies, their contestants trying to get to the guardian (if you reach the guardian alon its fine, but the guardian can only fight one at a time)

In the outer circle of the island you could walk around and move from region to region going left or right, but once you pass the first guardians, you can only be on that area unless you use fly or go back, and at the end of the area there is another guardian holding the badges that grant you access to the final tournament.

The Elite four would be an elimination tournament (but would basically be the same) and at the end you encounter the World champion trying to beat him.

A new Team Plasma lead by N would try to intervene (Because pokemon suffering etc) and the main bad guy would be one of the main investors of the tournament trying to catch a new Legendary that only shows up when an Increadibly large ammount of energy or power surges (which the best pokemon in the world battling would cause.)

I seriously wanna make this happen and would love to put a team together. lets make it happen.

Seems like you've put a fair bit of thought into this and you've got some cool ideas. Do you know which base you'd like to use? Also, do you know which aspect of development you'd like to work on? Just for example, mapping is probably the most beginner-friendly thing to start with and easiest to do. You could always start small and get feedback here or in our Discord server. Then once you've got a few maps you're happy with, you could post them here to solidify your proof of concept and help entice others to hop on board =)

Compared to some of the crazy ideas I've seen on here, this actually seems pretty easy and quick to make for the most part. As for catching your first poke in a safari zone (which would be, relatively, a lot of work for just sorting the player out with a starter), you could have your character already have a Pokemon which you've brought to the island. Think Pokemon Colosseum where it's already established that you already know your starters.

You could give the player a choice from a range of starters via a creative scenario like a flashback or a dream if you wanted to be a bit "fancy".

The thing about mapping is that i cannot recreate what's in my head :'D. If anything I'm more interested in the script and story. I want this to be a collaborative effort, so we get the best of the best lol, I make a living in the film/tv industry and I want to bring that cinematic eye stuff to the table. I can always learn the steps but it would take longer for this to develop and I love the concept lol.

Well, if you already know an area you'd have some interest in you're off to a good start =) haha, same RE: being unable to recreate what's in my head.

Scripting imo is the most fun thing to do anyway. I get what you're saying, it'd take a bit of time to learn, but if you do then you have full control of everything and you'll enjoy making things happen, it's more rewarding. Plus, in all honesty, I think it would take you less time to learn how to script than waiting for a scripter to come along.

A couple of links to tutorials here and here if you're going with FireRed. I'd be happy to point you in the right direction if you had a go and got stuck with anything =)
