          Thanks for the feedback.
          Most of you seem to like my tiles. Here's a small challenge; in the first post, Kyledove is credited for some tiles. First person to spot Kyle's tiles (it rhymes?) wins.

          Anyway, I'd just like to announce a (rather awesome) breakthrough. Do you remember the Pokédex script I showed a few months ago, and how I was complaining that it was really slow? I've rewritten it, and managed to achieve perfect framerate just by making it a standalone class instead of a subclass of Sprite_Window. Now I just need to rearrange the elements to fit the D/P screen size.

          Ummm...Would his tiles happen to be the mossy looking rocks/mountains with what seem to be flowers on them? As well as the flowers seen in some of the screens? They would there by be the base of your tiles?

            The flowers are based on the D/P flowers and the FR/LG ones. Kyledove based his on the D/P ones too; however, the flower tiles in the screens are mine. Keep guessing!

            EDIT: By the way, you can search any screenshots, not just the ones in the first post.

              The bushes are Kyledove's bushes. Like the small, spherical ones.

                Nope, they're edits of FR/LG's. Keep guessing!

                Oh, and I've got the regional dex to work, and written a script which makes it easier to create a regional dex :)

                  Nope, they're heavy edits of G/S/C's. You're getting closer...

                  I'm just gonna guess the trees. They look thicker at the bottom. Sort of like Kyledoves. FR/LG's had a thin trunk so that's my guess =\

                    Nobody guessed the ground, trees, or buildings...
                    But yes, it is the water. It's the only tile which is copied from any of Kyledove's tilesets, even though it's just a single shade of blue. I'm using a few more of his tiles, but I haven't taken screenshots containing them yet.
                    I'm actually surprised nobody said the trees; I suppose most people here are familiar with which trees he's done, though.

                    EDIT: Or not; Flood posted while I was replying

                    lol. well, i thought we were talking just about that screenshot above.
                    That grass kinda looks like kyledoves, is it?

                      Nope, it's just the water. You can stop looking now; there's no other Kyledove tiles in the screens :P

                        You guys are talking about kyledove to much -,-
                        All the tiles I see are almost the same pallete as kyledove's, not a big deal.
                        So logical that some tiles might look like his, doesn't mean those are his haha.

                        Also I like your tiles, it's a great style for any pokemon game, also everything is mixed.
                        Like trees, not only one boring colour, there more kind of colours in that screenshot above.
                        Thats really attractive for a pokemon game..

                          I'm sure your pokedex is a combination of existing pokemon and created pokemon, but will the national dex be in the game? I know spriting is a pain so if the national dex is in the game will you hold off on the release until all the sprites are done or release them separately in a pack or separately a few at a time?

                          Also will Smogon's Create-A-Pokemon Pokemon be in here? if so which ones(if possible)?

                            Hmm, let me take the challenge.
                            Is it those flowers in the ground?

                              The National Pokédex will be obtainable after completing the Shika Pokédex. I always thought there wasn't enough incentive to complete it, so the prize is a bit better this time.

                              The challenge has finished; it's just the water tiles.

                              I might have an update later today; I'm working on the Pokédex at the moment.

                                  Hey Wichu, just one question.

                                  How did you learn to become sooo good at those tilesets?

                                    Remember the moves that Psyduck007 posted? The type of the move Mummify is already decided now:
                                    Quote:
                                    CORRECTION(Type:Normal)- Eliminates the user and his ally's stat changes.(Other)
                                    COSMIC ATTACK(Type: Psychic)- Hits the foe with a power from space.(Physical)
                                    MUMMIFY(Type: DARK)-A one-hit knockout move that hits the foe by mummifying.(Maybe Physical)
                                    EDIT: I like to help and I can make some sketches of some 4th gen Pokémon. I can't sprite, but I'll send it to you for you to sprite. Just a suggestion. =)

                                      I know I said I'd update 2 days ago, but unfortunately, there were a few setbacks. Also, I didn't want the update to get lost at the bottom of the previous page... But anyway, here it is!

                                      As I said, I've been working on the Pokédex. Does anyone remember when I did an update on it? That was a few months ago.

                                      So, what's changed? First off, the animation is a bit better, and the frame rate now stays consistently high. Instead of the entries being arranged in two diagonal lines, as previously, they're now in a smooth curve.
                                      More importantly, though, I've done some of the graphics for the actual Pokédex entries. Those being the Info and Area pages.

                                      Anyone familiar with Essentials will know that the area is bought up by pressing C on the Info page, like in FR/LG. I've recoded that part to be more like R/S/E/D/P; the different functions of the Pokédex are now on different pages which can be changed using the arrow keys.

                                      The first page is the standard Info page. For this update, I've replaced all 386 GBA Pokémon entries with their Emerald entries.* The D/P entries are too short, so will be rewritten. I'll probably eventually rewrite the Emerald entries, too. Secondly, I've added the Pokémon's type, which is missing from the Pokédex in Essentials. And finally, I've resized* and added each Pokémon's footprint, thanks to legendarypokemon.net.

                                      The Area function has been upgraded too, in both looks and functionality. The area highlights now fade in and out, and "Area Unknown" is displayed in the centre of the screen. The town map has been revamped, and a border added. Function-wise, I've modified it to display locations correctly on large routes spanning multiple tiles on the town map; this was rather tricky for routes with turns in them, such as Route 50 (north-east of Hazelet Town).

                                      Finally, I've implemented a regional dex which is independent of the national dex. The screenshots and animations don't contain any new Pokémon; however, they reveal some of the old Pokémon returning in Amethyst.

                                      A few things are still missing; notably the words "Shika Pokédex" which are at the top of the old animation, and the "Z: Search" text at the bottom. The current dex isn't final; those will be added eventually. There is a small glitch where the "é" character doesn't display; I'm hoping to have this fixed soon.

                                      And, what you've all been waiting for: screenshots!
                                      Spoiler:

                                      The Info page in the Pokédex. I created a script which applies an 'emboss' effect to the footprint.

                                      Area Unknown? Damn, I wanted a Heracross...

                                      The revamped Shika region map, complete with border.

                                      Which still supports zooming.

                                      The Pokédex animation; you may notice that it's a lot smoother than previous animations. This is because I found a way to decrease the slowdown when using the animation script.

                                      Transition between main Pokédex screen and a Pokédex entry. Also shows the Area animation.

                                      You may have noticed that the sprites have been recoloured; if you did, you have a good eye for detail. All Pokémon sprites in Amethyst will be recoloured slightly.


                                      Spoiler:
                                      *Whenever you see me boast about accomplishing a long and tedious task, chances are that I actually wrote a script to do it for me :P

                                        Beautiful! Wow, very nice updates, Wichu! It looks wonderful, everything is smoother and a lot lighter to the eye. I love the Pokédex animation, as well, and the Region Map looks a lot better. Very nice job, Wichu!

                                        Also, have you already implemented that NPC I sprited for you? And were there any errors or oddities?
