    Welcome to the thread of Pokemon Silver Sea, a game that is based in Johto but isn’t a remake.


    Introduction
    Hi there, my name is Destined and I present to you my game I have been working on for a while now. I present to you *drum roll* Pokemon Silver Sea. (I don’t really know what to put as an introduction)

    Storyline
    Spoiler:
    You wake up one day in your house in Newbark Town and your Mum calls you downstairs, when you go downstairs she tells you that the Proffessor was looking for you. You head over to his lab to see what he wants, he asks you to run an errand for you in Violet City. To protect you against wild Pokemon on the way he gives you your very own Pokemon(not telling which one)that he lets you keep as a gift.

    First stop is Cherrygrove Town, you head over there battling any wild Pokemon that gets in your way. Upon arriving you immediately head to the Pokemon Center to heal your Pokemon before you head off to Violet City via Route 30 and Route 31.

    After travelling for what seems like ages of battling trainers and wild Pokemon, you finally arrive at Violet City. You head to the Pokemon Center to meet a Professor who goes by the name of Prof Haste just like Prof Olive asked you to. Prof Haste gives you a package which you are to deliver to Prof Olive immediately.

    You head back to Newbark Town but when you arrive in Cherrygrove Town a mysterious character runs right into you, he gets angry and demands a battle with you. You defeat him and he runs off towards Route 30 while shouting “You haven’t seen the last of me, you won’t win next time”.

    When you arrive at Newbark Town, the whole town is in an uproar, you quickly head over to the lab to find out what’s going on. To your astonishment, it turns out the Professor has been arrested by the Goldenrod City Police Department.

    Just who was that mysterious figure who you met in Cherrygrove Town and why was the professor so unexpectedly arrested? It’s up to you to journey throughout Johto and find the answers to this mystery.


    Features
    *Travel through the region of Johto and Kanto and maybe more if I have the time.
    *New graphics
    *All new adventure

      It's a... GSC remake, right?
      I think there are too many of those, but it also think this one will be the leading one. Good luck!

        Uh, IceCharizard, they /just/ said it's not a GSC remake...

        But anyway, I like it. Now for some critiquing- The indoor tiles are beautiful, but the pink of the carpet looks a little too... bright. Other than that, the 'kidnapped professor!!' theme is a bit-overused, so you might want to add in another twist or two to spice things up. Maybe the police are on the side of the kidnapper and will try to stop you from getting Prof. Olive? Something unique.

        Um, I think you should definitely change the titlescreen. It looks so...bleh right now and the only thing going for it is Lugia...

        But, yeah, keep up the good work!

        I thought the pink rug was a nice touch XD

        I really love the graphics on this game, perhaps one of the few Johto areas that are using Kyledove's new tiles? Aside from Waudby I guess, however this is set soley in Johto. Study up on some other games that are doing something like you; being based in a region but not being a remake. Like maybe change up the Gym Leader roster, of course have a new storyline, and decide if its in the past or future of Johto compared to G/S/C. I've always liked the idea of having a sequel in Johto after G/S/C, so I'm happy to see this ^^

        Good luck~

          Thanks for all of the comments, I will take on all suggestions and think a bit about the changes that I should make.
          @Jaydin Knight: Yeah, I just realised that the kidnapped prof has been used quite a bit, time to rethink that part of the storyline (maybe make it so something like a top secret device was stolen or something). Well I'll think of something, I usually do lol
          And about the title screen, after I posted I realised I hadn't finished it,. I'll try to finish it but if I just can't would someone mind making me a title screen with of course full credit going to whoever makes it. (Hmm, maybe I'll do a competition where whoever wins gets to be a NPC or Trainer in game)

              Really like the idea of the game (my first project was a johto remake, but it got deleted. Not saying that this is a johto remake, is it going to have major differences such as maps, new areas, and gym leader's/elite four?).
              I really like how you're using kyledove's tiles! Can't wait to see more screens!

                I'm very impressed with your game. I like its graphics, very nice. Here's a userbar I made for your game that anybody can put in their sig (and you, Destined, can edit this into the OP if you want):

                  Thanks for making the userbar, but could I please get you to post the code so other people can use it, cause I have no idea how to do it lol.
                  If anyone makes any userbars or banners in the future, please post the code as well. Otherwise other people can't put them in their signatures.

                  Edit: I recoloured some tree tiles from Pokemon Platinum in the Kyledove DP tree pallete, tell me what you think and if I should use them in this game.

                  Like it says on the image, please don't steal because I did go to a lot of trouble to recolour them. Although if Kyledove decides to do Platinum tiles I'll use his instead as his would be much more than simple recolours.

                  Edit: Nevermind about posting the code, I figured out how to do it.

                    it looks very nice
                    but, if i might interject... considering this is based on the johto region, you might want to consider recoloring some of your buildings. violet city's buildings have purple roofs, and azalea town's buildings have green roofs, but otherwise, it looks really good.

                      I know you said nevermind, but here's a better code, that way people can copy and paste it without having to link it to your thread themselves.

                        Update: I have finished doing the region map for Johto. I will also be adding some towns and cities from the anime that never made it into the original Gold/Silver/Crystal, so far I have only added the town where the events of the movie Pokemon 4 Ever took place. More will be added soon.

                        (The island down near the bottom of the map is actually meant to be Altomare, but I forgot to add a city marker for it).

                          It looks good!

                          But, you should change the NPC, because they don't match the background...

                          Anyways, you've got a supporter!

                                  Wow. Your thread got more posts
                                  in 2 days than mine did in 2 weeks. How does that
                                  work?

                                  Nah, I'm just messing 'round. This looks pretty good.

                                  Good luck! ;-)

                                    I found this style of doing the world map on one of Kyledoves threads on Serebii forums. Should I use it for this game?
                                    I did Johto in it so tell me what you think.


                                    EDIT: I didn't want to double post so I'll just edit instead. Anyway, if a MOD sees this would my thread be ready for the Games Showcase?

                                      Update: (Sorry for double posting, I just don't want to wait for someone to post after an update so I can post a new update).
                                      Well anyway, I have completed the Title Screen and I have also made a website for Pokemon Silver Sea.

                                            Sorry for double posting, but no one had replied for a few days and I really wanted to post this update.

                                            Update

                                            In the Graphics Department

                                            I redid the Title Screen and now it looks even better.


                                            In the progress Department

                                            So far I have mapped all the way to Ilex Forest and scripted the whole of Newbark Town.
                                            And just a note, Ilex Forest is a bit confusing so good luck getting through it.

                                            In the Screenshots Department


                                            I wonder what Professor Olive could want?


                                            Who could these mysterious people be?


                                            I wonder what the favour is?


                                            Shopping time.

                                            Note: All NPC sprites are temporary until I get a spriter to sprite ones that would go well with Kyledove's Sinnoh tileset.

                                            Well that's all for this update, keep watching for the next update.

                                            Hmmm... Nice, but you might want to fix up the region map, look at either the tutorial I posted, or the one Houndoomed posted, for info on how to... Good job though, I love the tiles!

                                                I actually did follow Houndoomed's tutorial and remade the Johto world map, I just forgot to post it in the update.

                                                I'll edit this post in a few minutes with the new world map.
