Demo Pokémon Spectrum


However, I just find out that the Pearls in Sandy Cove respawn if the player sells the Big Pearl at a shop. This is presumably done so that the player does not permanently lock off the Dowsing Machine if the player decides to sell the Big Pearl rather than exchange it for the Machine.


Version 1.4.0 is out. This time it's a significant graphical overhaul.

Some of the more significant changes:
  • Screen size increased. So now there's more room on the GUI and more of the maps are visible. This should make it easier to navigate some maps, especially those like Mojave Jungle which require the player to avoid overworld Pokémon to avoid hurting their party.
  • Nearly every part of the GUI got redone. Mouse controls can also be enabled for use in battles and for the start menu.
  • Tons of redesigns; almost every Pokemon that can be found before the 2nd gym got re-sprited in some way.
  • Map connections are removed, and now every map uses transfers. I noticed the performance of the game is noticeably better than before, even when compressed.

New Pokémon available:

Buoychin, found in Sandy Town and its surrounding areas. Water-type. It's normally very light and floaty, but once it protrudes its spines, its body becomes dense enough to sink to the ocean floor. This Pokémon is most dangerous to clumsy people who accidentally step on it on beaches, or children who want to play with it because of its cute appearance.

Inflatant, which can be found in Mojave Jungle when special conditions are met. Bug-type. It lives around plants to consume sap and nectar, which its body stores for energy later. It uses its antennae to test the quality of the food before eating it. People enjoy eating Inflatant because the liquid its body digests tastes like honey, but better.

Mairkura, which can be found at the Farm near Gobi Village when special conditions are met. Ghost/Dark-type. It awakens at night near towns and invades the dreams of anyone asleep, resulting in the victims having horrible nightmares. It used to be a Dreamare that became corrupted after being exposed to otherworldly energy. It's speculated that it eats Dreamare in hopes of fixing its body.

There are no new gyms; however some areas got completely redone from scratch (notably Gobi Forest, Route 6, Gobi Gym, and Kalahari Gym), one new area got added (Kolora Outpost, so now there isn't as long of a stretch from Sahara City to Kalahari City) and a few routes got modified (Route 5's bottom half and the Color Rock entrance).

If you are moving your old save file from 1.3, be sure to save in the middle of a Pokémon Center before moving to 1.4, to avoid conflicts with map/event changes.
