    Fan Game Prompts

    Discussion in 'Pokémon Fan Game Discussion' started by Presley, Dec 5, 2017.

    So, I've recently subscribed to a subreddit called /r/WritingPrompts. I thought that it might be a neat idea to bring that sort of concept here on Relic.

    If you have an idea regarding the overall story or features you might want to see in a fan game, post them here! If you see a prompt that you'd like to make a fan game based on, go for it! Practice your game-making skills! Essentially, this is like a "game jam," where you build off of the theme(s) or idea(s) that you like best! Everything else left out by someone's prompt is up to your imagination. Or, if you like an idea, but don't want to quite make a game about it, feel free to add on to it or even write a short story about it! Maybe someone could use that, too!

    I'll start off with a few examples:
    • In an alternate timeline where Team Rocket has actually taken over and established a region-wide regime, you have recently encountered a resistance of Pokémon Trainers who aim to retake the region.
    • About 50,000 years into the past, where tribes of man and wild Pokémon are in an everlasting battle of survival, there is a brilliant boy/girl who has a bold idea to try and find peace with these creatures.
    • You are an explorer who's ship went down. Stranded on a seemingly empty island, you must find a way to get back home.
    • Document the life and events of a celebrity in the Pokémon world.

    I'll give the brief prompt of epsilon, to add to this!

    Pokemon Epsilon: When two evil teams go to war over a region based on the myth of legends and the cultures of the people that follow those myths, your job is to find the secrets of the Alpha Pokemon's power, and the source of the strange new legendaries that it created from the 18 plates, in order to take down the war and save the Vesryn Region!


    note: this is for an already existing game, so moreso just looking at feedback and thoughts. It’s taken a lot to make the zo story better and then boil it down this far so im pretty proud of it right now

    I like it, it's a nice twist take on the Pokemon game formula as it tries to include a lot of legendaries instead of just one or two.

    In my game ( Pokemon Origins of Peace) the play starts getting invested into the Pokemon world's version of scouts on the top of a mountain suddenly there is a rock slide and you find yourself stuck! You find the only way out is through a cave in the side of the mountain. You find a massive stain glass window showing all the legendary pixie Pokemon around a dark ball. Suddenly the room fills up with water and you get swept out. You wake up on a sandy shore and see a man serounded by fire typed baddy looking people you beat them and rescue the old man and learns about the tribes. You decide you must be in the past!

    I've always thought a game set in the pokemon world, but you're not a trainer, you have some other job, is a pretty cool idea. There are a few games about the police force and i know in game jam 3 there was a game about fire fighting. I think it would be really cool to see the other side of the pokemon world and how the creator would build off it.

    I really like that you start off as some sort of “scout,” it reminds me of something like a national park ranger. And of course, time travel is always fun.

    Yeah, there’s been police, fire fighters, scientist-type jobs, and being a part of Team Rocket. Definitely would like to see more spin-off type games like this. Might even try to make one myself, but I have no idea what job it should be.

    A few more prompts that I actually want to work on:

    • You are a Pokemon archaeologist and you finally uncover the ancient ruins (that you've been looking for) and you discover that the ancient (insert name of a fake civilization here) are still flourishing beneath the earth. When you arrive, you discover that you are a part of a prophecy involving an ancient terror that awakens every thousand years.
    • You are part of a police force and you are tasked with taking down two rival gangs in the region. You soon find out that the only way to actually take these groups down is to get on the inside.
    • As your father is taking his final breath, he gives you the perfect sandwich and asks that you cherish it. As you are leaving, someone snatches your sandwich, which in turn, fuels more than enough anger to pursue your vendetta.

    Feel free to add on to these or change some things! Also, please let me know which story line you'd like to see in a game, I can't really decide which one of these three to use.

    In the light of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon:
    • A game in which you travel through Ultra Space to several other worlds in the main story, what happens is up to you.
    • A game that takes place in the non-main Pokemon dimension, where each Pokemon is an Ultra Beast. For example:
      • A game which takes place in Ultra Megalopolis and maybe even a story relating to the fall of Necrozma and the humans of that world.​
      • A game based on the Ultra Forest's world, where trainers do not even use Pokeballs to send out their Pokemon, or a game that's just the normal Pokemon world but just that.​

    • In your region there have been a lot of claimed sightings of rare Pokémon variants: Weezing with three heads, Arbok with unusual chest markings, pink Kecleon and Butterfree, and so on and so forth. The local Professor specialises in Pokémon forms, and both he and you are keen to discover these elusive rare variants. But is it just coincidence that there are so many alleged sightings of rare forms in this region?

    This is the idea of the plot for my game
    • You live in a big house lonely with your parents, they won't let you become a trainer
    • You run away with your friends.
    • Along your journey out of nowhere a bright light appears and renders you unconscious.
    • You wake up only to find yourself in a world unknown to you.
    • You must face the challenges of this unknown timeline and the wars taking place in it, and must look for a way back home.

    Another idea:

    You are an ecologist working to preserve a natural park. For the past few weeks, Pokémon have been disappearing, disrupting the ecosystem. You discover that there is a group of invasive Pokémon and you must find out what the cause of it is and how to stop it.
