    Made with:
    Rpg maker XP, and Poccils starterkit

    Introduction:

    Hello, again..
    As you can see in my signature, my other games (Pokémon Thermite and Pokémon Eternity) got deleted due to a hard drive error.
    I was not smart enough to back them up on an other PC
    But yeah, it happend and there is nothing I can do about it anymore..
    So I present you, my newest game, Pokémon Rancher!

    Plot:

    You're either a boy or a girl who lives in Jigano Town in the region of Rikolu.(yeah, odd name I know)
    Your Pokémon adventure is about to begin, but unlike other Pokémon games, you will obtain your Pokémon from a Pokémon breeder, named Henrique.
    When you go downstairs your mum approaches you to tell Henrique was looking for you! It seemed urgent, so you head towards Henrique's Pokémon ranch (yeah that's why it's called Rancher).
    You can trigger one of the two (!) opening events. After that event, you enter the ranch, where you get to choose one of three starter Pokémon (which ones will be revealed later).
    Once you've obtained your chosen Pokémon, Henrique tells you you can have an egg too!
    You then get to choose one out of 12 eggs!
    After you've obtained an egg and a Pokémon you leave the ranch, where your rival is waiting for you to have a battle!
    I will reveal more later, else I spoil to much

    Screens:

    Spoiler:


    Male hero, also female rival Female hero, also male rival

    Female again Naming your rival

    Your room Mum tells you Henrique was looking for you

    OMG, venusaur?! Henrique to the rescue!
    More screens will be added, tell me what you would like to see!


    Features:

    * D/P looks
    * Some new features (will be revealed soon)
    * Pokémarts sell Pokémon
    * Fossil Pokémon are able to catch!
    * Custom (edited) Battle screens
    * Custom (edited) text boxes
    * Fossil Pokémon!
    More to come!

    Downloads:

    Spoiler:

    The first demo is here, follow the link!
    http://www.megaupload.com/nl/?d=NF5N51PN


    Known bugs from the demo:

    Spoiler:

    * question marks instead of pokémon (any one knows how to fix it?)
    * The ship in Flaro City haunts you down (!) (is being worked on)
    (crossed out is fixed)

          Thread looks good PoKeMaKeR. The demo you let me (your VIP) play was also fun. But dude, Henrique? Are you serious?

          HENRIQUE!!

          Oh and you are going to show me that script you made. One way or the other.

              The Pokémon overworlds (like Venusaur) should also be credited to Kyledove.

              Your title screen is a bit plain, and doesn't match the visual style of the actual game.

              Otherwise, it looks promising. Good luck with it!

                  Perhaps tone down the saturation a bit, so the colours aren't as bright. And use a texture or picture as the background instead of just filling it with red.

                    Ok I'll try that, thanks Wichu!
                    Saturation? (help me.. I'm dutch and I don't fully understand the word)

                    I have one more question, it's also in the essentials thread..
                    But some questions never get answered...
                    Is it possible to make a trainer use shiny Pokémon?
                    If anyone knows, please tell me how

                    Time for an update, don't you guys think?

                    I give you the choice:
                    - Storyline update
                    or
                    - Graphical update

                    Tell me, and tommorow I'll update!

                      Kind of disapointed, I thought since it was called 'Rancher' you'd have a farm or something, but it looks like it's just a normal Pokemon adventure.

                      Oh well, good luck~!

                            Nothing is really wrong with the name, I just like making fun of it and watching you get frustrated.

                            Well, I think he should be named Matt. Definitely.

                            Show me the script! OR ELSE!

                              Well, I think he should be named Matt. Definitely.

                              Show me the script! OR ELSE!
                              Lol, no I won't show it XD

                              No one told me if I should update graphically or storyline wise... (uhm..?)
                              So I'll decided it should be graphically

                              Spoiler:


                              A second person in the mart, what's that about?

                              Custom Pokedex screen

                              Custom battle pic Henrique's farm


                              It's not thát much but it's something
                              I've got some more to update on, but I will update after let's say.. 10 post (mine not included)
                              Give me some feedback please!

                              Still the question remains:

                              How can I make it so that a trainer uses shiny Pokémon, it's really needed for a feature (not completly new) but never been in a gamefreak handheld pokémon game!
                              If anyone helps me get that sorted out I'll update with the feature (so it's a win win situation)

                                Update looks good.

                                I would say that it would be just like it is any other way. Import the picture of a shiny Pokemon and make the trainer use it.

                                I am not an expert though, just a suggestion.

                                By the way, you should definitely consider changing the breeder's name to Matt.

                                  Thanks matt, anyways Wichu did help me on the shiny problem
                                  Thanks for that Wichu!!

                                  So as promised I'll update with the feature, although it has slightly changed due to the fact it was impossible to make trainers use shiny Pokémon

                                  Update:

                                  The feature:

                                  This game has now a new subspecies the fossil Pokémon!
                                  Not like kabuto and omanyte a.o.
                                  But like an undead Pokémon, a living Fossil!

                                  I have already made one Pokémon a fossil Pokémon (Zubat)
                                  Here is what the pokédex says about it:
                                  This ZUBAT is a fossil, but it's not dead, it's DNA has changed and made it able to live!

                                  Here is the front pic of the fossil zubat:



                                  acctually the fossil Pokémon will look better, because it was difficult to make Zubat look fossil like
                                  Tell me what you think!

                                  PoKéMaKeR

                                  Edit: feature is added to the first post!

                                    This looks neet. But why are you doing this all by yourself? Surely someone might be able to help you make it better...

                                      True, but no-one has applied yet so I'll do it all myself till someone applies

                                        You should remove the skin on the wings and make it just bones imo

                                          good idea, but it's not a death pokémon, it's a fossil..
                                          so there is no bones nor is there skin, it's more like all stoneish
                                          But if you would like to sprite me an example of what you think it should like I can reconsider my design..!

                                            Have you seen the old fossil sprite of Kabutops from RBY? That's what a fossil is.

                                            They may not actually be bones but they look like they are, I mean we see dinosaur fossils all the time, and those are just bones.

                                              They may not actually be bones but they look like they are, I mean we see dinosaur fossils all the time, and those are just bones.

                                              edit: here ya go
                                              Yeah but that's not something I want to be in the game I want it to be like this..
                                              Although your right it's not fossil like the archological therms but I want it to be called fossil pokémon anyways

                                              Thanks for the feedback though!

                                                Fair enough, it's your decision.
