A game by @Michael and @Ekat
Introduction:
Once upon a time (well last year actually), we released a fangame known as Pokémon Present. The story goes:
"Pokémon Present revolves around Sylvester, a kind, albeit surly, officer-turned-detective in Riverview City. Sylvester works alongside his not-quite-canine unit, Swinub, to solve minor cases. Tracking down missing cheques and ice sculpture vandals doesn't come without risks, however; the frigid metropolis is home to ordinary people and criminals alike. To uncover the truth, Sylvester steps on the toes of some of the city's most important figureheads... as well as the mafia's."
As time continued to pass, we both became unhappy with the state of the original game. The world was ugly, the story was a bit over-complicated and had some jarring plotholes, there was very little side content, the level and difficulty curve was atrocious, etc. Eventually, we decided that it was best that we take the game down, collect our bearings and re-release the fangame in a much more polished state. Introducing Pokémon Ashen Frost!

The Game:
For the most part, the story of the game has remained the same. The game still follows Sylvester and his escapades around Riverview City. He's still taking on the mafia, making both friends and foes along the way. However, the game has been completely updated with new side content, balancing overhauls, a new evidence system in which the coding was done by @Marin himself and many other updates and features. Upon release, the game will contain not only the first 8 cases of the game but an additional 4-5 on top of that. The game also now contains the ability for you to switch between characters during certain portions, complete with separate teams and all!

The game has also been given a much more competitive presence. Bosses are tougher than before and make smarter decisions. To offset this, however, we've introduced an EV training centre with a trainer grinder and respective EV trainers to make optimization of teams easy! The game also has plenty of new encounters and such as well.

Following Progress:
Progress can be followed in a number of places. Some notable options include checking out our RebornEVO Club which is our main forum for game updates and news, joining our Discord Server and following our Twitter. Above all though, hopefully this project looks interesting to you. If you've read through this far, thanks for checking out the game! Hopefully you'll hear back from us soon with the release! Cheers!

Uh, having played the original, I definitely call BS on the world being ugly, and while I didn't get as far into the story to see major plot points, the writing was still very enjoyable!

It looks like this is going to have a lot of really cool improvements, though! That evidence UI looks nice and crisp, and the new scenes look like a lot of fun to explore!

(Also I hate to say this after seeing all this polish going into the game buuuuut there does seem to be a few typos in that last GIF- "Let's here... double cheese" is missing "see", I think, and "It's ok Detective" should have a comma after "ok")

Ah yeah, that's to be expected haha - these were actually just a bunch of old screenshots I pulled together because I was making the thread quickly; I'll put up a corrected post when I get the chance - good catch though!
