I am one of the newer members of this forum and have thought about creating a new game.

This would consist mainly of fakemon(or fanmon) and have a completely new region and story; aswell as new moves and abilities etc.

How would people feel about a hack like this being around?
Is it a good idea or not?

I suggest only doing fakemon if you are very good at spriting.

Also, making a large number of fakemon is very time intensive and many people underestimate that. I suggest limiting the number you make to a couple dozen at first (or even just a dozen), and then later on after you've developed the story and scripts consider adding more on if you truly wish.

On the other hand, if a fakemon dex is really what you have your heart set on (i don't really see any mention here of your story idea) you may want to consider making a sideshow showcase hack where the main storyline is the same but the graphics, and images have been changed to new pokemon.

I personally recommend most people try a minor hack before a major one, as it will give you skills, a hack base that you can then use for a storyline hack (there is nothing saying you can't develop a fakemon dex placed ontop kanto, place that in sideshow, then use that hack as a base to develop a second, storyline based hack.) and will be completed much more quickly; many major hacks are never completed at all, but most sideshow hacks I see are.

I am new to it but doing fair bit of research to it,alot of it will be trail and error i am sure.
There will be a fair few of fakemon but not entirely of. Making a hack that just replaces pokemon etc may be a good idea,will get me to learn a fair bit.

Thank you for the criticism. The more the merrier.

It could totally work if you wanted it to. From what you said, it's a little too vague to tell you if it's a good idea or a bad idea. Could go either way.

I left it abit vague to see if people would be interested in the game with the majority of fakemon. I have a good idea of what I am planning which i will create a thread on at some point.

Personally, I prefer real pokemon to fake pokemon. But if it was a really good game, I would play it either way. If you wanna go with fakemon, go for it. But I hope you're good at spriting. Cuz I'm not, and i hate it

Well I do plan on having actual pokemon in it aswell. Just havent decided on a ratio yet on it.

Ive started practice on spriting and will keep on trying till I have gotten better at it.
