    Not sure if this is the right category; could be scripting question. But lets move on.

    So for my fangame I want to make I was wondering, I would put HMs as Key Items - and I already know how to do the basics of that ("Cut" is now a "Saw" key item but i havent figured out the rest yet - but I'm not worried about that yet). What I am worrying about is this: What sort of substitute "Key Item" could "Fly" work as, and how? The placeholder I have now is something I'd call an "Unlimited Boarding Pass", which implies that the player uses a small private jet to get around the region, but I'm not sure.

    What else could work?

      Teleport machine/Power? It's hard to came up with a substitute for Fly that can make sense. The teleport idea would be more like "I know this place(checkpoints/city) pretty well so I can teleport back to them" considering the players to be exploring cities more than routes.

          there was one game i remember playing that did this too, mightve been zeta/omicron. and it used a jet pack or something, though that mightve been for waterfall climbing. but a jetpack or helipack should work

              How about a Poké Ride call for a Charizard/Pidgeot? You can do the same thing for Surf and even the others HMs.

                Literally what Gen 7 did sounds cool, but if that doesn't work, just go with the whimsical and do somethimg like Hermes's Boots. This item should only really matter if you otherwise don't have access to HMs, such as Zeta/Omicron and Insurgence's Solorun mode, anyway, so be as hilarious as you want! Zeta/Omicron literally give the player a freakin' Stargate for one of its HMs. You know, the giant ring thing used to teleport between planets using a six or seven-chevron code? That thing. The player carries a Stargate around from exiting the Escape Route cave to the end of the game/ending the Solorun. So who cares?
                Am I the only one aroundhere who thinks Gens 5 and 7 are the best?

                  I also agree with just using Gen 7 method of Poke Ride. Since that seems to be the most logical, lore wise. And it sticks to the original games as a bonus. If that can't work, I'm going to say that replacing HMs with key items is the more important part rather than what they are called or how they work. And from what you said, it looks like you're already doing a marvelous job!
