    Ok, now i have been thinking what would make a team rocket game great? Would it be the fact your a team rocket member or would it be the lies deception, and power? I think a little bit of both and alot more, So to make a TR game you need to understand their goals and motvation, as well as have a Evil mind lol. So here is a very early and rough draft of my Game/idea/Dream

    Game Name: PoKeMoN: Team Rocket <- Name may change.
    Created With: RMXP

    Intro: Of course your a team rocket member, to do givoanni's bidding. You will grow as a trainer and as a Team Rocket member, as you progress from a lowly Grunt to a Celebrated Rocket Admin. You will be giving missions from begginer to advanced diffculty and to acheve you must coninue to grow stronger and become better. You will travel from town to town completing missions and Achieving personal goals, Collecting pokemon for yourself and for the TR Corp. Making new friends and Stealing from them. The Life of a Team Rocket Member is now yours, go and make yourself a Legend.

    Story: Not gonna be released from the intro you get the idea of gameplay and your place in the game.

    Starters:
    Standard Starters, fits with story...

    Region:
    Kanto - you cant really place team rocket anywhere else

    ScreenShots:
    Quote:
    Features: (Updates 10/31/09)

    Theif System-(Undecided)
    Well my favorite and Most likely the Cornerstone of this game.
    Common Features-(Is In Development)
    All the features like the day/night ect...
    Quest/Mission System- (Is In Development)
    Your orders usually giving to you by a Rocket Admin
    Rep System/Trainer Level System-(Undecided) You'll still progress into a Rocket Admin just dunno how yet.
    as you grow in ranks your Rep becomes higher, allowing you to take better items and get better missions.
    Rocket Balls-(Is In Development)
    These have a higher catch chance than Ultra balls, but are only available to higher Rocket members.
    Orginal Rocket Events- (Is In Development)
    you'll help in the takeover of sliph co and other widely know Rocket Events
    Custom Hero Sprites-(Is In Development)
    I am making custom Grunt & Admin Rocket sprites.
    150+ Pokemon -(Undecided)
    May include pokemon from different regions.

    Pkmn Team rocket Creators:
    Shikamaru88 - Mapper/Story writer/scripter/creator

    Game Status:
    Maps 100% Complete
    Events 20% Complete

    Credits:
    Poccil - for the starter kit
    4th Gen Matt - for his amazing resource pack
    Curt - For the Indigo plateau maps helped me complete kanto

    thats it for now i will be working on this alot though and this should change very soon...

    Thats all i got for now but i'm sure i'll have alot more to come very soon, So this thread is reopened and I'm Waiting for your Suggestion

            Battle sprites and overworlds.

            If the characters are going to be Team Rocket grunts they should at least be original Team Rocket grunts.

            i.e. make them look like a Pokemon trainer would, only as if part of Team Rocket.

                  I could sprite trainers and overworlds if you want.

                  Also the starters could reamain Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. Just because they're in Team Rocket doesnt then need to have special pokemon, but if you really want to do that then Ekans, Koffing, and Meowth could be starters?

                    I'd just let them pick between Ekans and Koffing, because that just screams Team Rocket.

                      hmmm... I voted for Koffing, but I reckon Grimer would be awesome too. This is a GREAT idea. :D
                      And are the sprites gonna change once you become an admin? That would be cool. :o
                      And you'd better finish this. I wanna play it! ;A;
                      Oh, and what's the link for the banner thing?

                          I think Rattata is a more common member of the common grunt's team than Koffing.

                            I agree with Con, Koffing and Ekans are like standard Team Rocket Pokemon, Rattata is just a common pokemon period. No offense to you TheAbsol.

                              I sorta agree. Team Rocket tends to be a poison type thing.
                              But you need to have three to chose out of though... EVERY pkmn game has three starters. :p
                              so yeah i think there should be three poison only pkmn (eg ekans, koffing and grimer)
                              I also think they should have an equal number of forms (like the three i just said)

                              EDIT: Just saying the last bit better so it makes more sense.
                              When I say "an equal number of forms" I mean that all three of the starters should have the same amount of evolutions. (like all the starters off the real games all have three)

                                  I think with the graphics in the battle sence, the colours should be a more darker theme rather than the light orangy red. The classic Rocket theme is black/dark purple with a red "R".
                                  I'm not saying that it isn't good now, it's really quite awesome, but a theme more appropriate to the Rocket thing would be cool. ^^
                                  Just something to consider there. ^^

                                        So Professor Oak, one of the Pokemon Worlds leading Pokemon researchers always carries around a level 5 Bulbasaur? lol, it's not an insult or anything, just don't see it happening. Other than that, good work.

                                            I think the starters should be:
                                            Ekans, Koffing and Meowth... but if you don't want to go in the direction of the show I'd say
                                            Rattata, Zubat and grimer

                                                Hey, looks good! Just a few comments...

                                                Intro screenies (and throughout your game)::: I advise that you use proper punctuation so people take you seriously.

                                                Battle screenies::: I don't really like that font for some reason... It's a little big, first of all. Whether you want it or not is up to you, just a thought.

                                                Professor Oak's lab::: That map looks a little roomy and unfilled. Try adding some furniture, or shrink the map a little. Plus, add an exclamation mark on the first screenshot in that set, and in the fifth screenshot, capitalize come and put an apostrophe in let's.

                                                And for the third starter, I voted other. A Zangoose would be cool, but everyone would pick that instead of Zubat or Ekans. Personally, I would prefer a Grimer.

                                                Keep up the good work and don't give up on this!

                                                  I don't mean to be rude at all, but what has Zangoose got to do with team rocket? I have never seen a Rocket with a Zangoose.
