Pokémon Magical Dream is a fan game made on RPG Maker XP
remaking an old game only available in portuguese called Pokémon Lenalee's Desire
and implementing a magical girl plot in the middle of it.
The idea behind it is bring one of my favorite things I made in the past to a model closer to the original games on GBA
while twisting it with a bunch of cool thing along the way... and of course, making it avaliable in english.
WARNING: Even though this game has no sexual content,
a bunch of the fakemon designs can be kinda strong if you aren't prepared
(some of them have more humanoid features that can be uncomfortable or shows blood),
and most characters motivations can be harder to relate at a younger age.
Lena is a 22 year old woman who couldn't find a normal job and is constantly arguing with her mother.
After being kicked out of her own house, Lena has no choice but start a Pokémon journey with 12 years of delay
to survive in this estrange world full of weird creatures, eccentric people and a talking Zigzagoon.
✿Green: Already in the game. ✿Orange: Programmed, but not in the game yet. ✿Red: To be programmed.
A single region with some optional content.
Special forms based on the concept of magical girls transformation.
An actual transformation to the main girl.
Optional maps with a high level difficulty and good rewards.
A stone-like item to evolve trade Pokémon.
Ursa Inns replacing Pokémon Centers.
Dark version of plot important Pokémon and some special forms unrelated to the Magical Dream.
Real time clock completely removed.
Gym leaders and important trainers with actual strategies.
Decent to sharp difficulty without making the trainers overleveled or loaded with healing items.
Custom graphics simulating a generation 3 look.
Pokémon from generation 1 to 5 in addition to all the Fakemon and alternative forms.
Weird battle interface.
More attention to the use of berries.
✩✭The Magical Dream✭✩
This game's main gimmick.
Magical Dream is a held item that can change the form of some Pokémon
by making it wear a special suit or armor.
This is an obvious magical girl parody.
Most of the suits designs tries to replicate something already existent,
so expect recognising some shameless designs.
✿List of expected Pokémon:
"More Pokémon compatible with Magical Dream can be added in later development and some of the expected ones may be excluded from the final game." ✿Green: Already in the game. ✿Orange: All information decided and sprites already done, but not in the game yet. ✿Red: Incomplete planning or missing sprites.
✩✭Other Forms & Fakemon✭✩
"There will be more than the Magical Dream in this game."
✿Dark Pokémon: Only a few Pokémon will have a dark form, including the main legendary of the game and the first form of all the starter Pokémon. Dark Pokémon always becomes Dark-type and have amazing stats, but it becomes a normal Pokémon as soon as you let it evolve.
✿Forbidden Region Pokémon: In other words, all the Fakemon. In the original game most of them don't even exist and the game always refer a faraway region filled with chaos witch is where those weird Pokémon comes from. To be completely honest, they originally were made to a different game (which never came out), so the designs are more like Digimon tham Pokémon, but they are cool nonetheless.
✿Chaos Weapon Pokémon: The main weapon the evil team will use through the game. They are not playable and will always feels really ridiculous and out of place. I swear it's on purpose.
✿Other forms: Normally one offs with a different mythology behind them. Some examples already in the demo are the giant Teddiursa who wanders the region and the Star Cave Teddiursa who only appears at that specific place.
✿Pokémon Essentials: Flameguru, Poccil, Maruno, AvatarMonkeyKirby, Luka S.J., Boushy, MiDas Mike, Brother1440, Near Fantastica, FL, PinkMan, Genzai Kawakami, Popper, Harshboy, Rataime, help-14, SoundSpawn, IceGod64, the__end, Jacob O. Wobbrock, Venom12, KitsuneKouta, Wachunga, Lisa Anthony, xLeD.
If you are interested in the game, you can already download the first demo!
This version of the game allows you to play up to a little bit after beating the second gym, which took me 6 hours to beat while testing some side stuff.
Beautiful graphics. goodluck with your project ! 😍
✩✭Gym 3 and Updates✭✩
After a long way trying to make a challenging gym while balancing it, the third gym is finally complete! That time, soccer is the main theme, having exactly 11 NPCs and all the battles inside the gym will be double battles putting the player's team work in test. The third gym Pokémon type is Electric.
Geminu City is fully done.
Geminu City's music was changed to a new one istead of just reusing an old track like in the demo.
Added NPC who gives Rock Smash at Route 418. (Pizeon House)
Side quest added on Leaurios City. (Only available after beating the second gym and before beating the third one)
Gargobird growth rate fixed.
Changed some TV programs sprites.
You can now check the Star Cave Teddiursa sprite in the Pokedex.
Soccer Player trainer class added.
Added credits from some new resources in the game.
Plans for a new version? Don't expect a new version so soon, but after the fourth gym and the big event involving the evil team would be a good time for showing in game the Dark Pokémon and the main character's transformation. At that point the game would have a decent amount of new content to be uploaded again as a new version.
