    Introduction

    Okay, these ideas you're about to see/read aren't set in stone. I have an idea of what the story is but any advice would greatful. I have some hacking experience so I may need help some departments but I can script.

    Story

    Welcome to the new region, Reikon! After living in the Region for 10 years of your life in the small woodland area of Old Shaft Town you are finally able to obtain your first pokémon. How exciting, but with the twist of a gang chasing through the area for a legendary.. Lugia?

    Upon seeing the gang shout out about finding lugia and they run off somewhere, you walk over to go find the local Professor, Prof. Rupe only to find a mysterious flying creature dissapear..
    but you're less concerned over this and head over to Shaft Woods to go look for Prof. Rupe and ask what lugia is.

    Leading through the region with your newly aquired pokemon you discover more mysteries and find oppurtunities to help out others and become more Renowned to the Region showing reputation for your home town, but evil must be faced and cannot be skipped..

    Throughout you're journey you will encounter this new gang various times and some certain legendaries to help prevent them from their goal while still trying to go on and become a pokemon champion! Are you up for it?

    New Features !

    During the course of this you will meet up with this gang and go undercover with some help of a friend. Allowing you to find out more about them and why they're doing this.
    even who the leader is.
    Problem is with this is the backsprites and overworld changing. D: I would need a little help there if any one would like to.

    New gang!
    New Region!
    Explore the core of the region!
    new badges/gyms
    new protagonists!
    New pallets
    New characters
    Access to HOENN (UNKNOWN)

    Screenshots -

    New Pallets (Subject to change) -

    Final Pallet change

    What's happening?

    Who's that? (Note : I am workingon sprites at the moment, would appreciate help)

    Shaft Woods -

    Videos -
    (Not yet!)

    Help needed -

    Mapper (Good one prefferably)
    Spriter?
    Title Screen inserter+Pallet changes to fix it up.

    Team -

    LiekingOfMudkipz - Scripter

    Credits -
    (No one yet D

    Guys, please give constructive criticism not the simple "It's a bad idea" or such. And if you are willing to help then I will require..

    -Proof of work
    That is all I would like and don't use someone elses please..

    Remember! This isn't set in stone right now some of this will change either from me or your ideas.

      This looks very interesting. I would build on the whole gang/mysterious pokemon bit, because this (in my opinion), looks more or less like every other hack out there.

      Perhaps a game mechanic that can allow you to join the gang in their quest, or fight them. That would be interesting.

        Well what i've been thinking of is allowing you to go undercover with the gang (I can't think of a name) and follow them on part of the quest but I just wouldn't know how to set it up for backsprites and stuff when you change uniform. Then if this would happen then it would be crucial in the storyline to help stop them from grabbing lugia.. and because I'm involving lugia I want to involve ho-oh in some way and the three legendary birds.

          Lugia fights the other 3 birds in CANON. as for Ho-oh...maybe it can be a mysterious entity that you learn more about in the game. It could the the "lvl 70 pokemon".

          I don't know how to change OW sprites, but I think it could be done. If not, you can just pretend. Seriously though, you can be hired by the team as their own undercover agent or something.

          what do u mean change OW sprites? Do u mean while playing like the character changing clothes or making new OWs?

              I know you probably have this planned, but explain WHY Lugia is in this region. Also about lugia itself. I think you should use Ho-oh. Ho-oh being a Phoenix could give more of a motive for the team involving resurrection and making an invincible army or something along those lines. Just suggestions for story. There is a LOT more potential with Ho-oh I think.

              Now for another part of the story. Why chase down this evil group? Because some old dude told you too? Because you want to save the world? Boring reasons. Give more back story to the characters of WHY you want to find them. I have an idea that I think would be interesting. In the spoiler box below

              Spoiler:
              You start out doing chores for the prof.(also he should have some relationship to the main character other than the neighborhood researcher) He says to go and find the strange criminals or something like that. Anyway when you get to the next town, you find them and a friend of yours. Of course this leads to them taking your friend and then you hunt them down to find him. Along the way dialogue with the evil people can reveal some backstory, or maybe when you reunite with him.

              Idea 2
              Spoiler:
              You could also make it not kidnapping, but they do something personal. They break something very precious of yours, or possibly kill someone close to you. Something that would actually make someone want to get revenge and hunt down these people.

                I'm still deciding on things first, but can you please show some of your mapping skills. Like show me a woodland area map you made and a City area.

                With spriting I need proof too.

                @SHAYMEW

                ""Welcome to the new region, Reikon! After living in the Region for 10 years of your life in the small woodland area of Old Shaft Town you are finally able to obtain your first pokémon. How exciting, but with the twist of a gang chasing through the area for a legendary.. Lugia?

                Thank you for the suggestions, i'm thinking that they could use lugia to draw Ho-oH out and the reason to chase them down is because they can kidnap the professor, and Proffessor Rupe Could be your father.

                On the Lugia thing.. Lugia is known as the Sea king and too many trainers challenged it. Below the town you start in is where Lugia resides, but because Ho-Oh isn't easy to defeat for the gang they come in for lugia which is also another reason to go out and hunt down this gang.

                I wiill work on it some more and I really appreciate those suggestions, Thanks!

                          i think the default pallettes are better, also the specks of red on the last one should be a dark brown.

                          and your older mountain pallette looked better

                              .. Yeah, I wasn't gonna say anything but they're awful. None of them blend. I get that the whole idea is for each to...
                              Meh, too hard to put in words. Here's a tip. Reload the default palette, and, if you were trying to darken it, just lower each colour value by a set amount, with the Palette editor in Advance Map. It'll work more accurately and evenly. Because frankly they're terrible, the way they are now. Sorry.

                                If you want pallette changes, either do what the above person said, or at least mess around with some RGB values, until they actually fit together (trees with the grass as well!). Don't save the Pallette Changes unless you are 100% sure you are happy with how they look.

                                  Okay! I've done new pallets they look good to me i'm not sure about all of you however.

                                  The rocks maybe darkened a fraction bit but i'm fine with them.

                                    You seem to be having issues with palletes. They don't flow together, not at all. Try a bit harder. It's not very difficult, you'll see
