    Released The Elder Scrolls V: Pokémon

    Heh. I thought about it, but that was considerably more work than I wanted to spend on what was ultimately a side project.

    Pokemon fangames with all 898 mons and megas

    On top of the other complexities, Pokémon has the additional challenge of having to not only meet the deadlines for the game itself but also the deadlines of what the rest of the Pokémon trans-media empire has set. Other games can - and sometimes do - get delayed if they have to, but if a...

    Pokemon fangames with all 898 mons and megas

    The National Dex will inevitably be back eventually, either later in this generation or in whatever comes next. They won't all be obtainable in singleplayer though; no Pokémon game has ever had the entire roster available in singleplayer. I seriously doubt any fan games are going to at this...

    Pokemon fangames with all 898 mons and megas

    This is a terrible attitude to have, and is pretty dismissive about the amount of work that goes into games (fan or otherwise). Read the article again.

    Pokemon fangames with all 898 mons and megas

    No, but I wrote a lengthy article about why you really, really should not do that.

    How do you decide your Pokédex?

    I could have sworn there was a big thread a while ago about how people decide what to put in their dexes, but I don't see it, so I guess I'll just re(?)-write my answer. I like to go outside and think about what kind of wildlife one would expect to find. In the deciduous forests at temperate...

    Use newest Pokémon on Johto/Kanto game?

    I wrote an article on this a while ago. I recommend not doing that unless you're prepared for a ton of work.

    Relic Castle Anniversary

    Happy birthday, fellow nerds!

    Dev Kit Do Or Die (yes that's what I'm calling it)

    I'm still working on it, although I haven't used it for Pokémon in over a year. You can't make it "copyright proof," though. The Pokémon assets - and all trademarks, including every monster name - belong to TCPI, and the other graphics in this thread belong to the people who drew them.

    Dexit: Fan Game Edition

    That's true, although that's not really one of my concerns here - the concern is that the effort-payoff ratio is effectively infinite.

    Dexit: Fan Game Edition

    Yes that was the most provocative, clickbaity title I could think of. Can't wait for it to start showing up in Google searches. So, the question of "should a fan game include a complete National Pokédex" comes up pretty often in the Discord Castle - and other places I hang out in that talk...

    Discussion Inspiration & Creative Block

    A bit more on the "passion" thing, I guess. Even if you're 100% on board with your current project, there's always going to be something you'd really rather not be doing - for instance, it's a pretty safe bet that literally nobody ever has said "setting up map transfer events and punching in...

    Discussion Inspiration & Creative Block

    I like to tell people that if I ever want to work on a game but don't know what specifically to do my go-to solution is to boot up Skyrim for fifteen minutes to wait for something to click, but that sounds just a bit too much like something you'd read on the third page of a supermarket tabloid...

    Discussion Creating your own region

    So you can kind of divide the approaches to map design into two main categories: gameplay first vs worldbuilding first. It's kind of a top-down vs bottom-up thing. World first would mean starting with a landmass, reasoning through what kind of ecosystems it would contain - mountains block rain...

    Discussion Managing project deadlines and scope

    You all think deadlines are fun? ADHD makes it all 10x better. :^) ANYWAY. How do you deal with a definitive deadline creeping ever closer? One of my teachers once said "you managed to take a project which you had two-thirds of the semester to do, and turn it into a game jam." It's a given...

    Entertainment What would be your pokemon team

    I would have probably written something different before last November, but SwSh made this question much easier because it's now just 1. Wooloo 2. Wooloo 3. Wooloo 4. Wooloo 5. Wooloo 6. Wooloo Repeat pokémon rule be damned!

    Team Mapper TEAM MAPPER: Trial I

    The logical extension of this is that we need to do a game jam, but all participants work on the same game.

    Survey: General Hardware Specs and OS

    I think i told you this on discord, but worth noting: the people who go out of their way to fill out hardware surveys tend to be the people who know what they're doing and have better specs than your average game-playing computer user - according to the steam hardware survey the "average" gamer...
