    While you wait for Yesterday's Journey to start up again, check out my side project, Sentinel of Seasons: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=4520911

    Pokémon: Yesterday's Journey

    Introduction-
    This thread is mainly meant as a means of informing the masses that Pokémon: Yesterday's Journey is coming. Yesterday's Journey is a game being developed in RMXP using poccil's Pokémon Essentials.

    Plot Overview-
    Today, a member of the Pokémon Breeders Society is coming to the orphanage where you live. He is giving a short presentation on Pokémon, and at the end, all the ten year old orphans will receive a Pokémon. Unfortunately, orphans aren't allowed to go on Pokémon Adventures, as they are required to have their parents' permission.

    So you have your Pokémon, but you've got nobody to battle and nowhere to go. Outside, you can hear a Pokémon crying. After talking to the Pokémon, there is a white flash and it seems better. When you step back inside, everything looks different. The TV is gone, the rugs are a different color, and nobody looks familiar. You are greeted by an old woman who does not recognize you. She asks you to leave, as she has to feed the orphans. You desperately try to explain to her that you are an orphan, but she thinks you are mocking the poor children she takes care of. Confused, you wander around the town.

    Just before the entrance to Route 1, you are greeted by an elderly man. He tells you that Celebi brought you back in time. Celebi brought this man back in time nearly 100 years. That was 60 years ago. He has been searching for Celebi ever since. He informs you that much of the technology you are familiar with has not been invented yet. The Pokédex, the Pokégear, even the Pokéball is years away. Apricorns, he tells you, are how trainers capture Pokémon. He informs you that to return home, you must find Celebi. This will be no easy feat. Remember, he has been searching for 60 years.

    With your new Pokémon in an Apricorn and a mission on your mind, you set out.

    On your first stop, you meet a boy named Harvey. He begins talking about the Pokémon League Challenge, and for a moment, you forget all about being trapped in the past. Dreams of battles and adventures fill your head. As you snap back to reality, you remember that you must concentrate on finding Celebi.

    Unfortunately, you're not the only one tracking the legendary Pokémon. Team Chrono, a vicious gang of thugs is hunting down the creature as well. They hope to use it to manipulate time. With time standing still, they can run wild, catching rare Pokémon without a struggle.

    On your journey, you'll meet many familiar faces. Professor Oak, Kurt, and many others all appear as their younger selves in Yesterday's Journey.

    What's different about the past?
    -Pokéballs: They haven't been invented yet. You catch Pokémon in Apricorns.
    -The Pokédex: Professor Oak is just a kid, he hasn't even dreamed of the Pokédex yet. You can always take notes on Pokémon in a journal.
    -Potions: Before the mass production of medicine, people had their own homemade herbal remedies for everything.
    -Pokémon Centers: The government has yet to build a Pokécenter in every city. You'll only find them in major cities. There are plenty of nice citizens who would be willing to let you and your Pokémon rest with them, however.
    -Pokémart: This helpful little chain store isn't around yet. (7-Eleven hasn't been around forever either, you know.) You can always find a good old general store or buy useful things from other trainers and civilians.
    -The PC: Bill Gates is years away. If you catch too many Pokémon, you can always register with the Pokémon Ranch. They'll give you a nifty whistle to blow whenever you have too many Pokémon to carry. Then one of their specially trained Pidgey will fly out, pick it up, and bring it back to the ranch where they will catalog and store it for you.
    -The Bicycle: Sure, they've been invented, but they're far from optimized for all terrain riding. You can always hop on your favorite Pokémon and go for a "Ride".
    +Many more changes.


    Features-
    Over 50 new Pokémon.
    The all new Tokon Region.
    Dozens of new moves, as well as many of your favorites from Diamond and Pearl.
    100 TMs, including the new move "Ride" which will let you mount your favorite Pokémon to get around.
    (Semi) Custom tilesets.
    New Items
    Diamond/Pearl Music
    Different sprites for existing Pokémon. (Aren't you tired of looking at the same thing in every RMXP game?)
    A twisting plot that keeps the gameplay moving smoothly.

    Credits
    poccil, for Pokémon Essentials.
    samson, for the new Pokémon sprites.
    Avatar, for overworld sprites.
    Fangking Omega, for overworld sprites.
    4th Gen Matt, for the D/P music.
    Me, for everything else.

    I'll be doing 95% of the work for this game myself, but there are a few things I need help with.
    The Ride animation sprite in the video is temporary. I need someone who can make a better one.
    If anyone can make icons for the Pokémon menu, I need some made for all the new Pokémon.
    There are a few other things I may need. I'll add them as I think of them.

    This thread may not be updated regularly. I find that maintaining a thread distracts me from concentrating on the game itself. In fact, most of my games are doomed as soon as I post a thread. In order to keep Yesterday's Journey alive, I'm actually going to try to stay away from this thread. Haha! Enjoy!

      All the Fakémon are made by Samson, and are visible in his sprite thread. I have edited some of them, and of course, I'm not using all of the ones he has posted.

        Game looks awesome. Man, I would love to get my hands on that Ride script. Is it going to be an HM or is it going to replace the Bicycle?

        I appreciate that you credited me. Many people do not, unfortunately.

          It's a TM, but it will be readily available. It's also replacing the bike. For the script, I basically mimicked the bicycle script, since I don't know anything about scripting.

          Ahh, and I should mention that "TM" stands for Training Manual now, as 50 years ago, we didn't have CD's either.

                      I'm probably only going to use one graphic for all Pokémon, just as there is only one Surf graphic. I lack the scripting knowledge to do something like that.

                      Do you mean the Name/HP/Whatever Boxes? If so, why? And they are sort of temporary. I just edited them a bit so they wouldn't look the same for the promo video.

                          Yeah, that would be really helpful. I was thinking of a bluish theme, a bit more on the conservative side (nothing too flashy), but definitely noticeably different from the standard boxes. Thanks so much for the help!

                            Well... Last night, I fried my computer. It won't turn on at all. I'm thinking I toasted the motherboard, but I'm going to have my dad's friend look at it to be sure. Hopefully I'll be able to get some things off the hard drive, but if not... Well, that means I've lost everything. I'll update again when I find out if the hard drive is accessible.

                            Oh no~! ; o; Let us all hope that your files can be recovered! I really liked how the game was looking : \

                            I'm so sorry to hear that Magnemite! Ever since Wichu lost some Amethyst data, I've been backing up my own game daily, and this only shows me more how important that is...

                            Again, I hope everything is alright!

                                    Actually, my computer froze with RMXP running while eventing the Pokemon Center for my game. I closed all of the opened browsers using the keyboard and restarted. When I tried to open up my game, it had an error. It took my 4 or 5 hours, but I got all of my data back, exept for the PokeCenter and for some reason, the rival's house. But, now, I did everything 3 times quicker.

                                    So, Good luck with retriving your work! That must be really depressing!

                                      The game looks wonderful... and it's too bad because you lost all your files. I sincerely hope you don't let this project die. It has a very original idea for a game around here, and the plot, for what it is obviously has a good amount of thought put into it.

                                            Hey guys. It's been a while, but I'm back with an update.

                                            So the old computer is just sitting around, not doing anything, but I'm going to try handing it over to one of my friends very soon to see if he can somehow get me access to the hard drive.

                                            I'll update you guys again as soon as I find out for sure.
