"Even within all the darkness, you will always find the light."
By Ayrei



Life of a Pokemon Trainer, leave home at a young age, collect Gym Badges and Pokemon, and take on the Pokemon league. It was what everyone aspired to be at a young age, and with such ease, anyone could do it.

That was over 50 years ago...

Enter Ayrei, the first region to enter the Modern era.

In this time, Pokemon Trainers are tasked with protecting the lives of both innocent people and Pokemon across the world. One cannot become or act as a Pokemon trainer without the proper training licensing. Against them, are the Renegades, those who claim the title of a Pokemon Trainer, yet oppose these modern laws and ideas.

You are awoken within this region, no memories, no Pokemon, only a name. With nowhere else to go, you are invited to Vanguard Academy, a school with only one purpose, to train the next generation of Pokemon Trainers.

Looks really beautiful. Any ETAs on a demo release?
Thank you, I have all the maps and events completed up to the first gym just polishing up things such as Custom overworld sprites, Region map, Custom trainer sprites etc. I would expect a demo no later than 2 weeks from now but that could always change.

Very nice. I'm definitely gonna check this out.
Any plans to include the PBS files? I'm giving my own hand a shot at development and I've learned a lot from peeking through PBS files on other fangames and comparing how they do similar things.

Well if my opinion matters for anything, I'd suggest leaving them in. Locking it all down and hiding the information from others goes against the spirit of Essentials. It's open source and developers should be open to sharing things with others in the community, not hiding things away out of fear that other people might benefit from it.

Not worried about people being able to see the PBS files just worried about people having the ability to go in and change things around.

Changing things in the pbs files could screw with some things in the game which I guess wouldn't be a problem on my side but still just not entirely sure about it.
I'm not seeing how or why that would be a problem though. Giving the players that would like to modify the game to further their own enjoyment the ability to do so at their leisure could only be a net gain, I'd imagine. The few people who want to edit things or study them are free to do so and the people who are interested in playing the game are free to do so. I can't see any reason to cut off the people who would like to mess around with it except for petty authoritarianism.

A mysterious organization terrorizing the continent.
A government that almost refuses to anything about it.
Is this political commentary?
It's rare to see such a thing in a fangame and rarer still to see it done well, I'll have to keep a keen eye on this.

Will there be any proper fonts installed or just this? This font has given me nightmare since forever. But still, can't wait to try this one out!
Thank you for the comment, and no these will be the fonts used for the game

Any ETA for the game?
I've been working on it on the side a bit and also have been practically redesigning the game. Gonna try and release a version of the game before the month is over though but can't say for sure

I have updated the games thread as I've made decent progress on it. I would however appreciate some help when it comes to Character art and overworld sprites. If you are interested in helping me please contact me on discord @Ayrei#5764 or on pokecommunity :)
