    Storyline

    You are <insert name here>. A 13 year-old teenager eager to begin your Pokemon journey. You were set to begin your Pokemon Journey a year ago, but due to your parent's divorce, it had to be postponed. After the divorce finalized, you and you father moved to Ivory Town in the Fuji Region. Fully unpacked, you are ready to set out on on your Pokemon journey. However, behind closed doors, Team Astro is plotting and scheming. They have something up their sleeves, something that may ruin the lives of millions and change the PokeWorld as we know it! It is up to you to unearth Team Astro's hidden plans and stop them before it is too late. While also trying to earn your eight gym badges and become the Pokemon Champion!

    Want to help?

    It is very possible for me to create this game by myself, but that does not necessarily mean that I want. to. I believe that the experience of creating a Pokemon fangame is more fun if you are doing it with others. So if you want to help, feel free to apply by sending me a PM. Here is what I am currently looking for.

    Someone to help create events.

    Mapper

    As for me, I will create new ideas, map, and do some simple events. I need all the help I can get, so feel free to PM me with this form filled out if you want to help.

    Desired Position:

    Proof of Work:

    Support Banners

    Show you support for Pokemon: Onyx Version with one of our many support banners made by our Concept Artist Mages4ever.

            Those are just a prototype I would say.

            The final making of them will look a lot better. Thanks for pointing that out for me. I will get it fixed next chance I get. What color would you suggest to replace the black?

            Actually, the bulb on the Pure Bulbasaur is a lighter white than that on the Shadow Bulbasaur. Take a closer look and you will realize the color difference.

              The second go at Pokémon Onyx, isn't it !

              I would like to know the following :

              - since it is made in RM2k3, will it feature a proper pokemon systems (like battle and catching, you know )

              And about the bulbasaur sprites, I think you should change the shadow bulbasaur's eyes and bulb..
              But I need to make a sprite of it myself to see in what way you should change it !
              So anyways
              Good luck on the game, I hope to see this finished!

                  Well, I am hoping that I can get a battle and catch system, although I am not quite sure how that works. If I cannot figure it out, I may just use the base from another Pokemon Game for the catching system and battle system. I would first have to find th best one though, and get permission.

                  PokeMaker, if you want, you can help me sprite this game. It would help a lot so I can focus on other aspects of the game.

                  And yes, this is my second try at Pokemon: Onyx. I had to postpone the other one due to lack of time and when I came back, I decided to just throw it out the window and start over. I think it has started better then the other one did.

                  Well, supporting and encouraging me throughout the process is a way to help me. =)

                  And thanks, I hope I can finish this game so I can see my ideas come to life.

                    Uhm I'm not sure if I can help, cause I'm not really that good at custom spriting,and for the next 2 or 3 weeks I don't have much time on hand so.. (PM about this)

                    Oh and about the 151 Pokémon catchable, which ones will that be, only the first 151 Pokémon or..?

                      The first post says no Fakemon, so there is no custom stuff being done. The spriting will be strictly recoloring sprites to Pure and Shadow form.

                      To tell the truth, I have not decided which 151 Pokemon will be catchable yet. Maybe my favorite 38 from every region except one region which will have 37.

                        I already read about no fakemon, but I thought maybe you meant spriting custom sprites of the original Pokémon, but since it's only about recolouring, it's not that hard to do so maybe I can find some time to do so !

                              D/P is fine. Just PM me when your done. I am going to eat breakfast. I'll be back in 15 minutes.

                              Either way, the D/P Bulbasaur sprite is the same as the Plat. one.

                              EDIT: I am back from eating breakfast. Just PM me when your done with the recolor.

                                  Actually, it would be 1st, not 1th.

                                  So, 1st or 4th?

                                  I'll make a poll.

                                    Oops!!

                                    I made the stupid mistake to save the Pure Bulbasaur as a .jpeg file..!
                                    So here is the .png file



                                    It also has some minor changes, like the eyes and the lining of the bulb.

                                                    If it was blue then it would be the same color throughout. So, the gold is good.

                                                    Anyway, new title screen.

                                                    We are still looking for a mapper and someone to help with events. Just post or PM if interested. You need to tell me what position you want and show me some proof of work.
