Pokemon Spodumene is a passion project I’ve been working on for the last couple of months, using Pokemon Essentials GS that was created by COMBOY, that is a Gold, Silver and Crystal Version of the Pokemon Essentials Kit created by Peter O., Maruno and was based on the work by Flameguru.







Tagline for the game...
“What does it mean to be a legendary pokemon?”



Trailer 1
A Brand New Pokemon
The Story:
Taking place in the newly discovered region known as Rica, a rivalry between two opposing opposites known as Team Flashback and Team Equality has left the region split in the middle. While this is going on, it is finally the big day where you finally turn eighteen years old. But trouble arrives when your fiance, Nixon's father Professor Fern, wants you to come to his lab. In order to get the Professor to like you, you go out on a journey to collect all eight badges, to become the Rica Region’s very first champion. But, doing that isn’t going to be easy, as you have to deal with the troublesome Team Equality, Team Flashback, their combined rivalry with the Media, the disappearance of shiny pokemon, a rival who hates your guts and another rival who doesn’t know what they want in life.

Explore the Brand New Region of Rica!

The newly discovered Rica Region is finally populating, and gentrifying itself, since it was found. This region Is widely known for its shiny pokemon, and was the place were shiny pokemon was recently discovered. Described as a land of freedom and freedom of speech, the people in this region aren’t afraid to show its love of the place they call home. Many types of locations in the Rica Region are waiting to be explored, such as the rainforest safari zone, the vanilla house, the statue of justice, and much more exciting places. Another interesting fact for your travel throughout the region is that whole region lies in the middle of the mount of Slushmore.
Unlike other regions, some pokemon that are considered legendary, aren’t considered legendary, and some pokemon that aren’t considered legendary are considered legendary, why is this?



What are the Origin Forms?!
A new type of Pokemon Form is here, called the Origin Form!

Origin Forms are a new form created by the H.A.C.K.E.R.S. as a way make certain Pokemon overpowered. In order to use them, you have to use the X Diamonds and must own an XXXX Gauntlet.
The ___ X are Diamonds made to bring out the Origin Form of Pokemon. They make Pokemon super overpowered changing their types, abilities, stats, moves, and can only be activated with the XXXX Gauntlet. It infects a Pokemon with a healthy virus.Pokemon stats can go super high making them extremely overpowered or they can become extremely weak.

Characters:

Pokemon Spodumene and its characters, along with its plot draw inspiration from the current topics that go in America in the current time, which means that the characters will reflect on that. As stated the game is based on America. These are the characters of the game (but not including the main characters):
  • Nixon: Professor Fern’s only son who is very close to the main character. Nixon and his father, have a very rocky relationship, as Professor Fern not only doesn’t like the playable character(s), he also wants his son to be a Pokemon Trainer, but he doesn’t want to be. Nixon is hiding a big secret and will play a major role in the game.
  • Christine: You’re main rival who can be best described as the stereotypical mean girl trope. She doesn’t care about anyone else but herself, and the only things that drive her in life is her love of fashion, boys, money, and fame. She likes taking selfies.
  • Benji: A famous Pokemon Youtuber in the Region of Rica, who doesn’t really want to play Pokemon anymore, and wants to branch out to other things. However, ever since he’s branched out to doing other things, his views has declined and he doesn’t know what he wants to do anymore, seeing as he doesn’t want to be a Pokemon Youtuber anymore and be defined by “Labels.”
  • Professor Emmanuel Fern: The Rica’s Region brand new famous Pokemon Professor who studies shiny Pokemon. He hates the closeness between the playable character and Nixon and will do anything to try to separate you too because he hates you. He’s stubborn, hateful, and very overprotective. Lately, he has been researching the increasing disappearance of shiny pokemon in the Rica Region. He has a theory and believes that shiny pokemon are the true forms of pokemon.
  • Clyde Sparksdale: He is the CEO of a television company, and helped discover the Rica Region alongside Professor Fern. He knows that he has a reputation, but doesn’t let that get to him. He is very close with his co-workers and knows that many people in the region find him trustworthy.
  • H.A.C.K.E.R.S: TBA.

The first four gym demo is out, and ready to be released to the public. All feedback is apperciated. Things that are in the demo. I don't have a computer right now, due to technical difficulties and will be getting one soon, but I will take notes. Also there's a chance that the story may be rebooted and I'm looking for someone who could go through the games dialogue and proofread and stuff like that. I could really use the help on that.

So far, the game looks really good! I love the detail you've added to the maps as well as post-Gen 2 Pokemon being added.

I love the plot and the characters added - it seems like a really good game to me. Can't wait to play it!

Good luck!

Thanks, for the feedback so much. I actually do have a demo of the game, I just doesn't know when I'll make it fully publicly available lol.

I like what you're doing with the Gen 2 style, and the plot with Shiny Pokémon sounds very interesting. I notice your characters are very... grounded in reality? I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing. Like, they seem more like characters you'd find in real life than in a Pokémon game. The reference to mainstream media seems pretty blatant- the Pokémon world doesn't really have the system of politics that would lead to corruption in the media, so I don't know how that would fit there.

"But trouble arrives when your fiance, Nixon's father Professor Fern, wants you to come to his lab. In order to get the Professor to like you, you go out on a journey to collect all eight badges, to become the Rica Region’s very first champion."
This is a weak motive in my opinion. Why do you need the affection of your fiance's father? If he's stubborn and hateful, why even try? Why does you need to become the champion for him to like you? Even so, it seems then he would like you just for your status as champion.

Also, what do Team Equality and Team Flashback do? The way you worded it makes them seem like they exist just because you need villains to get in the player's way.

I actually agree with this. I do feel like they're thrown in there just to get in the player's way. In fact, I was really struggling, with villains for the game in general. At first, I was going to not have any villains in the game but then decided too. But yeah, Team Equality wants to bring social justice into the world and will do whatever it takes in order to. While, Team Flashback, is tired of the social justice in the world, and wants the world to go back to a time where the social justice agenda wasn't forced down their throats.While with Nixon, he just doesn't like the player. The reason why is revealed in the game. It was kind of hard to make a summary of the game without spoiling what happens in the game,

I'm really debating the political nature of the game. Like I'm thinking of taking it out. Cause the region is based on a Modern America, the gen 2 style is meant to be the ironic cause of it. But anywho, yeah, even in the game, the characters don't really care about the pokemon aspect of the world. It's very political driven. But, I'm thinking of changing the whole storyline.

I would change the storyline. I think that your game might display an overall political message, and you risk doing that halfheartedly. I think this sort of storyline would be more suitable for an non-Pokémon game. Besides, many people want to escape politics and those kinds of messages.

If you're even debating not including it, as the resident political shithead here, I'd recommend taking it out. Unless you are 100% sure of not only your message, but exactly how to get it across in an elegant, non-preachy way, you'll be creating an inferior product and likely angering a ton of people for what seems like a non-essential part of the game.

Above all else make the fangame you personally want to make. So long as it's something you think will cause people to have fun, or that you would enjoy playing, then make what you want. So long as you're aware that stuff like this can be VERY (I mean VERY) divisive, you've got the freedom to make the game you want.

But basic evil teams on real-world groups of political activists can definitely come off easily like bad or offensive caricatures if you don't understand those movements thoroughly.

Thanks for the feedback and after giving it some thought I've decided to rewrite alot of it. Cause it didn't feel like Pokemon, and I think the new approach that I'm taking feels more Pokemon like.

Sorry to be a pain but could you do a link via Google Drive or Dropbox as I can't use other sharing sites in my country and would love to give this a go :)
