    Pokémon Grey is being made in RPG Maker XP, with poccil's Pokémon Essentials.

    This is your run-of-the-mill fan game, but with more flowers. Intense, I know. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel when it comes to the Pokémon RPG format; I'm just adding my own touches to it. My goal is to give the places and characters you meet more depth and challenge, and yes, as I've noted, flowers.



    You come from a small, hilly town in the south of Minenn called Periwinkle. On a starlit night, you and your best friend Amy sit by the river on Route C1 and talk things over. Amy was on orphan until Professor Hawthorn took her in. She is very unsure of herself, and always means well. She feels that leaving to pursue a journey is an insult to the woman who selflessly raised her. The next day, you and Amy meet Blaire, a stuck-up, prissy girl, who makes a very strong impression. Hawthorn asks the two of you to go to Primrose City to pick up some medicine as a favor, and allows you to adopt your first Pokémon. Upon returning from your errand, you receive some very bad news.



    Pokémon Grey will feature a modest and sane amount of new Pokémon. XD Here are a few of the ones I've come up with so far.

    [494] FLEURUSH (Meadow Pokémon)
    [497] IGNISCALE (Pitchfork Pokémon)
    [500] BRELAPHANT (Spiral Trunk Pokémon)
    [503] HAMCHU (Burrowing Pokémon)
    [505] BLUEBRR (Bluebird Pokémon)







    - [Maps]
    - Periwinkle Hill
    - Route C1
    - Primrose City


    [ 5 ] Credits
    - poccil for his indispensable Starter Kit!
    - All the custom Pokémon, tiles, etc. are by me.

      Look pretty nice. The tile looks neat.
      The only problem is the fakemons.
      They look really un-professional. ( No offense, just opinion. )
      Maybe try looking for another fakemon spriter?

          Glad to see your back working on this. I was a supporter back when your first showed it off and I still am.
          Good luck as always and I'm looking forward to something playable.

              Well, yeah, I know my fake Pokémon aren't the best in the world, but they're not terrible, compared to some that I've seen. I really like the new sprite I did for Bluebrr. ^.^ It looks a lot better than the original. And that's all I can really do, you know, tweak the sprites here and there and improve them as I go.

                Some nice fakemons you got there, the Articub one looks cool . And the maps looks neat, they give a feeling of peace.

                      Thanks! Yes, I am. There's a bit of swimming in the trailer. It's really pretty simple, but I still think it's kinda fun.

                        Thanks a lot.

                        I've gotten quite a bit of the beginning "get your Pokémon, do a favor for the Professor" stuff. Route C1 is finished. I'm working on Primrose right now, just setting up lights and such. It looks really cool. From Primrose, you venture into Chiffon Woods. Carmuren has more forests than other regions. The woods lead into Route C2, which goes to Daylily City, where the first Gym is located. It specializes in Ground-types. Once I've finished all the way up to the end of the Gym, I plan to release a demo.

                        Also, I want to add that if I had the option I would disable this stupid thread rating system. I'm really quite tired of people trolling around and giving me a 1 star rating, just to be a jerk, because I've put a lot of hard work into this game. Well, unfortunately the demo release will be a "no trolls allowed" sort of thing. :/

                          Well, yeah. I know it's kinda dumb for me to be all offended by people 1-starring my thread, but it really does tick me off! I suppose these people think all the stuff I'm doing is really terrible, so they won't have to play the game then. They don't get to. :/

                          Yeah, that was one of my ideas, but I've scrapped it! I went through a number of plot changes last time, but I've reverted back to a more classic Pokémon beginning.

                            I always hate to be the bearer of an opinion that seems contradictory to everything else, but nobody has mentioned it yet, so... Don't you think it's a bit hypocritical to call people out for using Essentials, then make a game with it?

                                Hmm... Some of the fakemon look rather unprofessional. I like the ideas, but a few look a bit lacking. Anyway, other than that, great game.

                                  You should tell him what is lacking so he can improve on them.

                                    Lol I thought Hamchu is a ham version of Pikachu xD
                                    The tiles are nice, so are the maps. Good luck with this, un-capitalized blueguy.

                                      Is it just me, or does Hamchu resemble Oruchuban Ebichu? Look it up on YouTube if you don't know what I'm talking about.

                                        Aww, cute! XD I mostly based Hamchu on a pic I found on google, plus, I took some cues from Hamtaro, since he's so adorable.

                                        I like cute stuff. : P Most of those are basic stages too, so they'll evolve into tougher looking Pokémon. With swimming, you're only going to be able to swim on calm water. You can't swim in the ocean. You'll need to surf. Periwinkle is pretty forested, I realize. That's the one thing I need to work on with maps: I tend to fill them up.

                                        As for what I said, I don't object to Pokémon Essentials! I think it's awesome! That's why it bothers me when every other project seems to show no actual work towards anything playable, simply bad maps, with bad grammar, and a bad plot, and they all use tiles and sprites they didn't even take the time to make. It says to me "I just took someone else's tileset, made a bad map in five minutes, and took a picture." Where are the ideas? Where is the actual work towards making a playable game?

                                        Exactly! Yes, it would be a lot more helpful to get specific advice. I am totally open to any suggestions or opinions. As I've said, my fakemon in particular are not the best, so any help improving them is welcome.

                                          I also love the natural feel of your maps.
