Hey there. :)
This is my first fan game, though I have dabbled with rom hacking.
Also, English neither my first nor second language, so no grammar nazis allowed. :p

With this out of the way, let's get started:

Pokémon Rose Pink, Iris Purple and Aster Violet

Announcement:
A sequel to RP, IP & AV is in the works titled Moss Lime and Coral Lapis.
They will feature a new smaller region based on the Faroese Islands.
They are still in early development, so if there is anything I should do different in those games, now is the time to speak up.
If there is enough interest I might upload a playable alpha version sometime.

Intro:
RP,IP and AV are made with Pokemon Essentials 16 in RPG Maker XP.
They take place in the isolated region of Koris which is based on Iceland.
The main character sets out to challenge the 8 gyms in the region and soon runs into the misguided Team Sulphur.

Features:
*Synthetic evolution stones - unlimited uses
*Return stone - de-evolve any Pokémon
*Meet an evil organisation - Team Sulphur
*Battle 8 gyms, elite four, and champion
*12 towns and cities; and many other areas
*A selection of Pokémon from all generations
*Mystery Gift
*New Eeveelutions (no other fakemon)
*Post game content - Battle tower, university, etc.
*Version exclusive Pokémon
*Aster Violet has a bit more content

Gameplay:

Status:

It is impossible to pass the first trainer (hiker) in the second room (down the first ladder) of Volcano Cave. Please fix, since you cannot progress in the game as is.

Wow, you're already that far into the game?
Thank you so much for playtesting. :)

I reduced the levels of the hikers in volcano cave slightly and changed the pokémon's move sets.
Hopefully they should be beatable now.
If not, please tell me what exactly the problem is. A certain pokémon or move or too high level etc.

Otherwise, you should be able to avoid them altogether I believe. :)


EDIT: Never mind. I see what you mean by impassible now. ^^ Stupid blunder. I'll fix that right away.
EDIT2: This time FIXED for real. Hiker was moved further down, so that he doesn't block the path.

I'm surprised that I didn't catch this during playtesting. But I did use the debug version, where I could walk through walls. :p

Hi ^^
Surf is supposed to be given to you in a house between routes 510 and 511.
I may have marked it wrong in the excel sheet. :p Oops.
Hope this helps and thanks for playing. :)

Is it the Seaside Cottage? I went in there and all I got was a good rod. I'm playing Aster Violet.

You're right. The game was in development for about a year, so I misremembered. Sorry again. orz

Turns out that I'd forgotten to set a certain flag for the NPC (in Rain Town) who gives the HM03.
I fixed it for the new version. Now you should be able to get the Surf.

Btw. Just download and run the new version. It'll automatically use the old game save. :)

Question: Is there something I'm missing? My Staravia and Flaafy aren't evolving. They're both level 36. And for Iris Purple, I get the stones to evolve Eevee but I don't get Eevee, please help.

Hi. Thanks for playing Iris Purple :)

Flaaffy evolves by using the Sun Stone which is in the tunnel on Route 524. :)
Likewise Staravia evolves with the Bird Stone found in the Mountain Forest on Route 517. Many evolutions have been altered to use evolution stones.

The location of the stones (and all other items) can be found in this document: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1t29XrlKCSa3hiQt15HFRq1WTlqHvJOedyGHDyTGsgzY/edit?usp=sharing

As for Eevee, it can be found in the wild on Route 508 and the forest on Route 503. It is somewhat rare though.
Alternatively, currently a shiny Eevee lv 33 is available as a Mystery Gift. :) Just click A on the paper on the counter in the mart, "fill out" the form, save the game, and upon restarting click Mystery Gift between "New Game" and "Options" before resuming the game.

I've checked the map and it only shows the town maps/gym names. Whereabouts are Route 524 and 517 in terms of town names? I've looked and can't find any @TakakoJin
Both Routes are kind of late in game.
On the map Route 524 is marked as Cross Tunnel (yellow marker in the middle of the map) and 517 as Mountain Forest (green marker in the south).

There is a way to get to Cross Tunnel early from Mt Back. But you'll need TM94 Rock Smash, which is a hidden item on the tiny island on Water Route 505, between Cloudy Town and Breeze Town.

Hope this helps. :)

I don't know where I go after the 5th gym D:
Hi :)
You are talking about the Gym in Misty City, right?
From there you have to go south to Tide Town and then west from there.
You will receive HM04 Strength on Route 515 there, which you will need in the Ice Cave.

Are you running the newst version of the game? Otherwise there might be an NPC blocking the way inside the cave.

Hope this helps. :)

Thank you. ^^ Knowing that you enjoy the game makes it all worth it. :)

Yes, after beating all 8 gyms, the next stop is Victory Road.

You can either go directly north from Smoke City, using Surf/Waterfall outside the east gate.
Or you can get HM02 Fly from an NPC in Weather Town, after you retrieved her stolen bag.

There is some post-game content after you beat the Elite Four.
There is a Battle Frontier north of Mt. Back. (You have to find another exit in Mt Back to get there.)
And there are 5 legendaries in certain caves and buildings.

I hope you also enjoy the rest of the game. ;)
Can I ask if there was a part that felt too easy, too hard or too long?

And I would love to know what your team is when you enter the Hall of Fame. :)

Enjoy! ^_^ ~TJ

@TakakoJin

I seem to have not have rock smash so I can't progress with the game D:
My team currently:
Level 58 Staraptor
Level 64 Wyveon
Level 63 Machamp
Level 62 Ampharos
Level 63 Sharpedo
Level 64 Decuidueye

Accidently used the return stone on Staraptor and made it go back into a Starly that's why its so low compared to the rest

Hi, thank you for this feedback.

It made me realize that the location for Rock Smash is a mistake.
I updated the game, so now TM94 is given to you at the entrance of the Victory Road cave by an NPC.

I don't think Rock Smash is mandatory before that point.

Anyway, sorry about your Staraptor. ^^
And good luck taking on the League. ;)

I've looked but I don't see a npc near the entrance other than the Eevee trainer and the guard which don't give me anything. Am I missing something? D:
