    In the last few days I have been making posts to try and spread the word that I have been planning to make a fan game called Pokemon Anachron, but by the feedback I have recieved, sensibly I have decided to give all I have into this post.

    I have no beginning to the actual game. I have a good idea about what I want the story line to be, and I have many, many designs for new Pokemon I want to have in the game.

    The whole idea about it is the Weather trio Legendaries, and how their massive battle affected the region and Pokemon in it. the Pokemon, in some cases have developed new forms called Ancient variants, which are forms of Pokemon common in the region who have new types, signature abilities and new moves.

    Thing is, I myself have absolutely no skill in making these games since this is my first time trying, and failing by the looks of it

    I know, thanks to a comment from someone else made a short while back, that no one will want to help me unless I gave them and idea of what they are getting into, so I will provide the concept arts for the region(hand drawn) and the three ancient form starters (digital)

    I hope this will suffice, because if this attempt fails I probably will not push it any further, so i guess you could call this my Final Gambit eh?

    thanks for your feedback

      Here are also some of my sprites I have created in preparation for development
      All of them are ancient Form sprites, and some mega evolution form remakes

      That's fine. IMO you should start with whatever bit of your game is most interesting. This is the fastest way to build a demo that might attract other people to work with you.

      Like I said last time, this sounds cool! And also I think this might be a good place to start, work out how to edit the PBS files to add your Ancient Pokémon to the game, then move on to the abilities and moves.

      When it comes to adding new abilities, moves, items, etc then a good way to start is to search through the code for effects that are similar to the thing you want to add. For example if you wanted a move that made your other fire-type attacks more powerful then you might look at how Charge and Flash Fire work.

      Just throwing it out there, you probably need to be more patient. Even short games take a long time to make, and if you're just going to throw in the towel immediately that's a massive turn-off for any potential recruits. Who would want to join up to a team where the leader loses all faith in less than a week?



      Oh also a tip about your sprites—you probably want to make sure that you do all your edits with 2×2 pixels, or equivalently you should scale down the sprite to ½ size before making your changes and scale back up again after. Otherwise the original pixels will be more "blocky" than your edited parts.

        Thank you for the support. I definitely was not confident in my ability, but by breaking it down a little and just giving that bit of feedback can really help!

        Ill start with what I am good at, or at least ok at, by doing sprites then I will move onto the coding stuff from there, maybe after some tutorials

        One concern tho is that I wanted my game to be as up to date as possible (gen 7) but no matter what I do I cannot fin an essentials version for that generation

        Any help/advice on this would be greatly appreciated

        Yeah, Maruno doesn't want to add all of Gen 7 to Essentials so you'll have to use a resource and do it yourself. Which means you probably want to be a little more comfortable with code before you start doing this, and you're probably going to have to piece it together from a variety of threads on the forum, plus a little of your own work. Search the Scripts, Tutorials & Tools section for threads that have Gen 6/7 stuff.
