(7/31/21) For those of you who may have already played the game, feel free to tell me which update you would like to see come first in the next game release HERE!

OVERVIEW

____________________________________________________________________________________

For Generations, Pokemon has been a game where you get your starter from the professor,
catch wild Pokemon, Beat the gym leaders, defeat the elite 4 and inevitably become Champion.
Maybe you even get a legendary or two during your journey. All of this is known as the typical
Pokemon game format. Today, I bring you something different.. Unique, so to speak. This project is currently
being worked on by two people. Both of us enjoyed the creation of this game and this is the first game we ever made and released.
We hope you all enjoy playing it.
Without further delay!

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

FEATURES & SCREENSHOTS

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

~ Player's Choice
- A majority of in game outcomes are solely dependent on your choices alone.
What you say, do and decide will dictate your future, just like real life.
Spoiler:



~ Character Stats
- Stats such as Intelligence, Strength, Charm and Skill
are all calculated based on your choices in game. These stats also determine what
you as an individual are capable of. Make a choice, and you'll see one of these stats effected.

Intelligence - Determines how smart the player is. It is needed to ascend to higher rank classes and discover the unknown.
Strength - Determines how physically strong the player is. It is needed to move, make or break objects!
Charm - Determines how attractive the player is. It is needed to increase success when flirting and to encounter Legendary Pokemon!
Skill - Determines the player's abilities as a Pokemon trainer. It is needed to unlock more wild Pokemon and Trainers to battle!

Spoiler:


~ Energy - A character stat that determines how many actions you are able to do in a day. Various activities will consume your Energy.
You will be notified once your Energy is low, and once it is low enough, you will have the choice to sleep and start the next day.

~ Interactions - Not necessarily a character stat, but still effected by player actions. It determines the game's time of day.
Essentially, the more interactions you make in a day, the more time has passed. It is reset everyday.
Spoiler:



~ Reputation - Positive and Negative alignment based on your choices in game. Some may be good, others not so much.
The same person may say different things to you depending on your level of Reputation.
Spoiler:


~ NPC Affinity - Some of the NPC's in your class are students you can bond with. These NPC's will give you a variety of things.
Their affinity with you is displayed when interacted with. You may talk and battle with them daily, and will be able to unlock future interactions as well.
Spoiler:


~ Schooling System - You are at an academy with your own dorm room. You are expected to complete homework on time and attend class Monday - Friday.
Failure to do so will result in a detention. Getting enough Detentions and skipping detentions skipped will ultimately lead to your expulsion.
Spoiler:


~ Save Points - You are only able to save the game when you sleep to start a new day or visit poke centers. No more saving wherever and whenever!
This feature is to force you to think about your choices because there is no going back and redoing, unless you're willing to forfeit a days worth of progress.
Spoiler:


~ Multiple Save Files - You are able to have multiple games saved!
This gives you the option to see and experience the many different choices and outcomes available in Pokemon Pathways without having to lose your main progress!
Spoiler:


Shout to all the people who went out of their way to make videos showcasing the game!

There doesn't seem to be a way to save I tried up until I reached my dorm but I really don't plan on playing further unless you can tell me how to fricking save. Especially since I keep running into bugs like talking to the girl swimming by the fight club crashed my game
Thank you for finding the bug with the swimming girl by the fight club! I just fixed her! Also, you have the option to save once you end the day by sleeping in your bed! In order to sleep, your energy needs to be low! I'll put that saving can only be done once you sleep in the next patch!

The room on the left end of the D-rank dorm hallway also led to some test room or whatever they're called again someone just gave 6 pokemon. Whatever it was when I tried to leave I was no longer in the academy at all.
Oh shoot, thanks for reminding me! it's fixed. I'll be releasing the patch today. I also included an option to save once you reach the academy for the first time, as well as a few other things.

This looks very interesting, and a far cry from what a traditional Pokémon game generally is. Definitely going to give this a spin for sure.
Ayee I just dropped my latest single Soulace on all streaming platforms. This is a chill Lofi track that's very personal to me! I hope y'all enjoy!

All right but I found more bugs in the D rank field the one that has the guy fishing by the entrance, when I went west past my witch classmate and the up north there was some more water I pressed enter and the game crashed. After I got done with class I went to heal my pokemon and then instead of one there were two pokemon following me. Also in that cave neither the witch girl or the martial arts classmate say anything when you try and talk to them, there's a number of people like this like the two people blocking the entrance to some forest in the area with all the academy buildings . Also don't know if it's a bug or a feature but in the fields when I talked to the girl with sentret it started another battle against her. Lastly I kinda of don't want mention this one but I found another way to save when quitting through game menu after asking if I want to quit it ask if I want to save.

I'm fixing all of those bugs right now. Thanks for finding and reporting them! I have the downloads on halt until the newer bugs you found can be fixed for 1.2

Forgot the Pokemon center one you seem to have fixed must of been an issue with scyther since switching him to the front no longer makes him the one following me around, sadly.
Updated 1.2 Release is out, hopefully everything you mentioned is fixed

Can't believe I just noticed how badly I butchered that sentence it was supposed to be "forget the Pokemon center you seem to have fixed it"
hopefully everything you mentioned is fixed
It seems to be but I'll go find other bugs.

Talking to the guy in the upper right corner of the battle club crashes the game. Also the white haired guy at the lower right corner of the second floor of the library doesn't say anything when I try and talk to him. There are a boy and a girl stand on the hill at the upper left corner of the D-rank field with the guy fishing near the entrance that don't say anything either.

I found some bugs, going around the campus lots such as the market or library, I could not talk to very few people. Just a few I could not talk to. However, my biggest bug I found was that while exploring the wild area after the first day of class, report to teacher when done, I had gotten into a battle accidentally and died. I then got into a wild battle and my Pansage was full health? Then I went to the pokecenter and when she finished, I had TWO pansage following me!! It was weird! I was never sent to the Poke Center when I lost the battle which was weird, then I had two pansage following me? Is this a known bug or did I completely mess my game up? I am willing to redownload if this is fixed as I loved the game within the first few minutes!!!

1. first time playing. i choose born as my mentor and then i got lost. i walked into the cafeteria and talked to his friend (gray hair dude), he told me that born is in the battle arena. i got there and when i entered i got a crash. an script error about event 1?
2. budew as my following pokemon. i talked to it and it was saying something along the lines "[pokemon name] is so happy it is jumping around" after that i suppose it should show the hopping animation but again i got a script error.

Found more bugs the blue version of you doesn't talk when you try and talk to him in the battle club, principal doesn't talk ,if you study at library with only 10 energy the guard traps you inside, if you talk to the guy at the front inside the battle club and he lets you in and instead of walking further in you go back out and then back in there's now two of him one to the side and one at his usual position, you can walk on roof of student lounge, you can walk on top part of table on lower left end of the ground floor of the student lounge.

Also I noticed your fix for people not talking is almost always just removing them, weren't they there for a reason like the witch girl is my only classmate that can't seem to be found anywhere. It bothers me that the only person I can bond with is the street fighter girl. Another issue I have is while when asked if I wanted a tour or to explore on my own choosing tour it told me raised my intelligence, but no other choices give me that notification about my stats. Sure studying at the library would say intelligence has increased but not any choices and I know some choices must affect my stats because I noticed some go up at the end of the first day of class. Speaking of stats there's areas to train intelligence, strength and skill but what about charm how do I raise that? Also I know I got escorted by the police at the start but done a number of good deeds and got explain why I was being escorted yet it said something like a bad rep of 8 or something, was my bad rep just that high or did things like finding the mans monocle not do anything? It would be nice if it said something about if my actions had lowered or raised my rep. I also would like to know is there any advantages to finishing the D-rank Class early or is best to unlock all the D rank fields first. Well anyway the game has a lot of potential and I really did like how I got to beat up a hitmochan with my bare hands and that I did get to tell people about it. Also like being able to break rocks with my hands, will I be able to push boulders at some point? Anyway it's nice to be a powerful human as well, people often forget pokemon also has superstrong people and psychics and mystics.
