    Intriguing game . The art is particularly impressive

    Seems like there's a lot more to the game than whats currently available. ~1GB download for about an hour of gamplay? Just how big is the final release gonna be? {XD}

        Hey guys. Just wanted to say to anyone who's contributed to this project a job well done. Really like the designs, the aesthetic and overall what I've seen of the demo so far. The art is really pretty and I'm looking forward to hearing more about this project.

        Just a question...What are the chances of Nintendo pulling a DMCA notice against this? I know this project is non profit but recently a fan-made non profit Metroid II remake got a DMCA notice in their website.

        I know that was probably because it was a full blown copy of an existing game and hopefully fair use can fall under this project which has its own assets build from the ground up but I'm a tad bit worried. Hopefully this project sticks because the people involved have worked so hard on this and it would be a shame to watch it go to waste.

        Keep up the good work, guys.

          Production is still underway for this game, so no worries there. The vast majority of the work right now is on writing so it's difficult to share anything without spoiling. Please make sure to follow the social media pages for more spontaneous updates.

          On our end we actually just made some adjustments and drastically cut down the game's overall size (as much as 90%+) without losing quality. It's actually miraculous and we love it.

          Hi all,

          Quick alert:

          Game Jolt was hit by a takedown notice from Nintendo for numerous Pokémon fan games on their site, including Pokémon Academy Life. This isn't a direct cease & desist to us. Development will continue quietly.

            Why does Nintendo hate fun?

              This is stupid, Nintendo should know that fan games don't take away from their products it contributes to sales! I know a lot of people who got into Pokemon thanks to fan games ): Heck Nintendo's handheld sales skyrocketed thanks to Pokemon Go!

              I will keep supporting this game :/ and any other fans create till I kill over

                Love this project. The writing is hilarious and well executed, the art is good and the story.... wait, what story? I guess that's why it's called a demo.
                Characters are charming and well written, and I love it.

                  Interested in helping with the story here. I noticed you had an issue with figuring out how to catch pokemon. Just a quick suggestion I can think is Field Trips. Things like bug catching outings, fossil digs, oceanic exploration. Aviary refuges for regional birds. Things like that that can group together not necessarily types, but categorize them.

                    The demo was awesome, it leaves you a desire of playing the complete game. I just hope that you can create close bonds with the characters, especially, a romance one. And I hope that you can find a way of introducing battles and catching pokemon. Keep going with this fantastic job!

                    A little teaser for the next update.



                    We weren't planning on doing a public update, but after some consideration, we felt it made sense. Soon.

                          I tried the last version and i liked a lot of this game. It's diferrent of all, and this is what i like in fan-games and hack roms. The only problem was that there wasn't the system battle and i thought there was so much text (i'm brazilian, so it tires a little to translate all the speaks). This new version looks very improved, certainly i'll tri it too, and good work for you with this incredible game!!

                            Consider this post a bit of a review.
                            First off, I'll start by mentioning what I consider to be the negatives.
                            I'm uncomfortable with some characters having the same designs as they did when they were 10 years old. Their outfits just don't seem like something teenagers would wear.
                            I'm also slightly bothered by some of the scenes but I realize that that's a personal thing and wouldn't constitute as feedback.
                            A little annoyed by the fact that if I click too early on certain dialogue, looking back causes the drawn-out transition between scenes to play again.

                            Now, on to the positives.
                            I love the artstyle for both backgrounds (the attention to detail is astonishing) and characters (besides my criticisms earlier). The soundtrack's pretty great as well.
                            I love the writing. Well, not all of it but enough to list it as a plus. A lot of the characters and scenes are absolutely brilliant. You seem to interpret the canon characters' personalities in a way and I love it.
                            The diversity in choice is pretty great and the options seem well fleshed out.
                            I wanted to say something about the intro and the interface but I can't find words for it. Besides, well... I like it.


                            Other:
                            I'm a bit confused by how elective classes are set up. They're twice per day, so do the teachers teach the same class twice a day? It's the only way I can find to explain it that doesn't involve time travel.

                            EDIT: I forgot to mention that I haven't played the whole of the new version yet but I'm going through it. Keep finding more and more things I like.
                            That said, Blue's Squirtle did no damage with its Bubble attack for some reason?

                              Whenever I try to load my save file from the previous demo, the game says "there was an exception" and something along the lines of not being able to roll back due to the script changing in an inconvenient way. The same message came up when I started a new save file and tried to save the game. Nobody else has brought this up here, so I was wondering if anybody else knows about this?

                                  Appreciate the help, but I tried deleting everything from the old demo, but my save file from it still shows up in the new one, and I still can't save the game.

                                    That said, Blue's Squirtle did no damage with its Bubble attack for some reason?
                                    Also someone questioned why Squirtles bubble attack didn't do damage at times and I also questioned this during my playthrough. I came up with two possibilities, either the game is glitched and it needs to be patched or since we just received these pokemon, it isn't listening to him like ours is. They said our character has a special bond with pokemon which is why Charmander is listening to everything we say and Blue's Squirtle isn't listening to him. Only possibilities tbh.

                                      First off, lemme say that I absolutely enjoyed this demo! An a little more than an hour flew by so fast! As a person that played a few VN's in the past, this one definitely got me from the beginning. Usually it's slow in the beginning thus making me not as engaged into the story until later on. It could be because it's Pokemon, my childhood game with a different spin on things. I am so ready for the next update.

                                          Just wanted to say that I've been following this game since it started a while ago. The graphic style and visual quality of this game is unparalleled. I've enjoyed every second playing this! Keep up the good work!

                                            I assuming the first demo ends at the part where you go out and catch pokemon with leaf or is there another path that advance farther.

                                            The important thing is I LOVE IT.
                                            The art is incredible, the girls are crazy good looking.(A part of me hope this was R rated with scenes :P)

                                            The only thing that bug me is May's relationship status. WHY CANT SHE BE SINGLE WHY *tears fall down*
                                            I'm wondering if you could still get her?(somehow)
