Wasn't keeping track at this point so I don't remember.
First public release, updates saw addition of fakemon, bug and error fixes, animation updates.
Q: What emulator do I use?
A: None, this can only be played on a Windows operating system. Open the game folder, then open the Game.exe (little galaxy pokeball icon). It runs by itself.

Q: Why is there no battle animation for this move?
A: I made over 500 battle animations for this game in order to make it suck less. There's still a bunch of animations I have yet to do, and I plan to finish them with the final release. Feel free to let me know which animations are missing, I keep a checklist going to make sure I get them all.

Q: When will this be fully complete?
A: No idea, I'm one person. It might never be done.

Q: Where do I go after Echorock?
A: Make sure you talk to the man above the statue. After that, check back with Thorn.

Q: How long/ how many badges are there?
A: This game has taken on average of 6 to 9 hours, depending on how much you invest. You will obtain 2 badges in this version. You get to explore a little more than half the island planned for the full release. The 2 HMs you will get are Fly and Cut. The 1.5 update has added a post-game challenge set of trainers.

Q: Why does my fog/panorama/picture/field poison effect get cut down to a quarter of the screen sometimes? (Or, why do some graphics get messed up when I'm using "Large" screen mode?!?)
A: For some reason, if you open the program automatically to the large screen setting, it'll cut the graphic. Just go to options, switch to medium and back to large, and it'll fix it. Not sure how to fix it permanently.

Q: What Pokemon are all in this game?
A: 1st through 5th gen, and some original ones. I gave you an unencrypted game folder. I'd prefer if you played to find out, but you have access to everything you want to know about the game inside various folders. Feel free to snoop around if you must, but I wouldn't ruin the fun if I were you. There are fakemon, alternate forms, and new evolutions. More are planned for the future.

Q: How do I get Gorochu, Nidorook, Quzsparce, or any of the fakemon?
A: Play to find out. You can always check the Pokemon.txt folder, located in the PBS folder, if you really want to ruin the fun.

Q: Will I be able to carry over my save to the final version in the future?
A: Ideally, yes, but probably not. A lot of things could change in development from now till then, so I wouldn't count on it.

Q: Can I use ______________ for my own project?
A: Absolutely. Anything in this game is either made/edited by me, or from other public art assets. Credit needs to given, but feel free to use anything in this download.
Install the fonts! The game won't look as intended if you don't install the fonts (they come with this download)
Go to game folder, then Fonts folder, highlight the fonts, right click, install.

Z = Run
X= Menu/Cancel
C/Space/Enter= Confirm/Interact
Arrow keys to move
F5 for registered items

SAVE OFTEN
This is a fan game, meaning I'm not a professional. There may be things I missed in testing that could mess your game up. I've done the best I can so far, but there always could be a hidden bug. Just be weary.

WARNING IF YOU ARE UPDATING FROM 1.0, 1.1, OR 1.2, THIS UPDATE MAY BUG OUT SOME MOVES.
I updated moves in V 1.30, meaning that "Fairy Wind" will become "Freeze Dry" if a pokemon already had Fairy Wind. If you catch a new pokemon with said move, it'll be normal. I believe you can just forget the move and that should fix it. There's about a half dozen or so moves this will happen to. If you are playing this game for the first time on V 1.30 or higher, you are safe.
tl:dr Moves got overwritten from 1.2 to 1.3, which caused a few to change. You can forget/relearn moves in Echorock to fix issue.

If you beat the Dojo pupils in 1.3 or earlier, and didn't get to face the leader, interacting with the southeast big boulder in the first room of Echodrop cave will correct it. (Warning, if you do this before having beat the 4 pupils, it will mess up the events)
This game is free and should never be involved in any monetary exchange.

Special thanks to the friends that I bounce ideas off of and that provide me feedback and assistance when I need it.
Max, Aki, Josh, Teo, Tom, Andy, Jose, Sam, Sabs, Iwan, Justin, and Duncan.

Shout out to Hukon Risu for inspiring me to make every inch of my game worth your time,
by making the world more interactable and interesting.

The graphics that were used were either my own or original/edits of the artists below

Feel free to use anything in this game,(fakemon, battle animations, tilesets, new moves, etc) for your own non-profit project.

I hope you enjoy it.

No clue how to do that, so mind telling me which one pichu is in, lowest or middle. I know what the options for top one is already :)

challenge trainers eh, I'll have to look for those once I'm done, I'm early in atm and it crashed last night so I lost significant progress and a shiny machop I found :(


Is there anyway to change the controls, as I'd love to change the run button to something closer to the arrow buttons

@Fluxx The cheapest option.

Was there something in game that causes the crash?
You can try using joy2key or something like that to change controls.

Honestly not sure, but I'll try describe it to help hopefully
The game was just frozen, no errors or anything just frozen, it happened twice and the first time it snapped out of it, the second time it wouldn't snap out of it so I just closed it

@ixias Thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it and will factor it into the development process! Glad you enjoyed it, don't suppose you could share your team with us??
Sorry, I just saw that you responded to me!
My main team was a shiny Golbat (which refused to evolve...), Quezsparce, Godfrogger, Kokismash, Metagross, and Charizard, but I also rotated Nidorook and Faeralynx in every so often.
One thing I didn't realize until I saw aDrive's playthrough was that I don't think I'm able to fight the dojo master. I beat all 4 of his top students in the cave, but he just tells me to beat the 4 trainers when I speak with him. The only thing I can think of is that I did that after I beat the gym and got the second badge/cut, but not sure. I tried talking to the bottom right rock (saw it on the update page) and that didn't do anything either.

Really great game! Played it through over the last few days, finished the last challenge trainer earlier today. Excellent work, kudos!

I own a macbook, so I played using Wineskin. Game works well, but for some reason none of the music plays (other sound effects work fine). Not sure why, all the audio files are there and it isn't a problem with some of the other RPG-maker Pokemon games I've played the same way. (If anyone else wants to play on Wineskin, look up a guide for e.g. Pokemon Insurgence or Phoenix Rising, it works the same).

  • My team was Venusaur, Faeralynx, Gorochu, Staraptor, shiny Leavanny, and Xatu. Had Shellder2/Skulkraken for a bit, didn't enjoy using it so I stuffed it in the box. Want to try out Quezsparce and Lukagon, they seem strong.
  • Really great easter eggs (Nice!). Some of the dialogue from interacting with houseplants and the like made me laugh.
  • I love what's been implied so far by the setting and story. Also got surprised by the, hmm, brief glimpse of a legendary (I won't spoil for anyone who hasn't found it). Lots of good NPC dialogue, I'll look forward to whatever comes next.
  • Level curve felt good, though that Machop is really tough. Rival was easy. Challenge trainers were fun, hard while a little under-leveled but nothing impossible.
  • Faeralynx carried a lot of the tougher battles. STAB Technician Ambush->Bite is ridiculously good. Loved the abilities of the starters, Rough Skin/Leech Seed/Rocky Helmet Venusaur is a passive damage machine. I almost want to try it out with Sandstorm/Stealth Rock as well. Drizzle Blastoise promises to be amazing.
  • The overworld pokemon are really cool, and I love that they respawn and change based on the time of day (and egg moves - I had Hypnosis on Faeralynx for a while, it pulled of some key battles). They stop moving after you battle a challenge trainer though, seems a little weird. 'Bork' Poochyena is both adorable and annoying.
  • A few names are misspelled (Genesis Forest appears as 'Genisis' on the Fly map and I remember seeing 'Seadridge' or 'Seadirge' Town somewhere.
  • Some weird/illegal movesets on the challenge trainers (e.g. Feraligatr has Brave Bird and U-Turn). Also item choice is wonky, the Gliscor with Toxic Orb doesn't actually have Poison Heal so it just kills itself.
  • If anyone needs to speed up egg hatching, you can get a Camerupt with Magma Armor by evolving a Numel from Amber Trail.
  • Is there a way to get more Link Stones end-game? The stone merchant appears at Merchant's Ridge but doesn't sell them. Can't remember if he had them while in Echorock Town.
  • EV-reducing berries would be nice to have. So would a lot of stuff that I'd assume will come with later versions, that's just what I feel is missing the most.

5/7 will definitely keep playing and check back for any updates that may come in the future. Fantastic stuff!

You have a choice wether to tell or not tell your dream to professor Thorn, but all choices lead to the exact same conversation :(

Hunting for bugs in Pokémon Fangames is one of my hobbies and I have to say this one is extremely well made as there are basically no bugs.
It is also amazing how you actually made animations for the moves, even new ones. Most fangames don't even attempt to do that.
The difficulty is slightly above average, that Machop for one is still a hard battle. But its still fine as I'm used to playing more difficult ones.
I enjoyed playing the game and hope to see other fangames importing some sprites/animations from it since you said its allowed.
Some Pokémon try to hunt you down when they see you. This Poochyena stopped here for some reason. I guess there is just a map border here so probably not a real issue.

a typo (Pokmon) in Stonedust Peak

the border on the south here (Palkan Heights) is a bit weird, you can go down further south in some parts than in others.

@ixias As far as the dojo goes, there's no reason that shouldn't work unless you for some reason have an old version.

@jedijinnora Glad you got it to work on mac! I have no idea why the sound wouldn't work though. Thank you for all the feedback, I will try to take it into consideration before finishing the final!

@Aprogergely When explaining the dream, there is like 1 or 2 other dialogue differences, but yeah it all circles back to the same conclusion, that was supposed to be kind of a joke. I'm glad you enjoyed the game, thank you for finding and reporting some of the bugs, I will make sure to fix them for the final!

I'm having a lot of trouble downloading the game as i am not a very tech savvy person, i saw a video of someone playing this game and got really hyped for it. So would it be possible for anyone to do a tutorial of how to download the game. This would also help with having to answer the same question over and over again.

I don't think you really need a whole tutorial for how to download the game, it's quite literally just a matter of going to the Download link and clicking the download button. (It's here, if you're having trouble finding it)
Are you maybe confused by how to unzip the file? (You have it in your downloads, but you can't open the folder to find the game?) That's something a lot of people don't really know how to do, but it's really easy with the right program. I personally use 7Zip for that, and once you've got that installed, it's a nice, easy process.
  • Find the file in 7Zip. (It works just like you'd find a file normally, you're just using 7Zip instead of File Explorer)
  • Select it
  • Click Extract.
  • It'll have some stuff about determining where the file goes, you don't need to worry about that. Just press OK, and it'll create a new folder there with all the game files, fully loaded.

No problem! Let me know if you have any more questions!
Thanks to you i was able to successfully able to download and use 7-zip to extract the file but now how do i get the game running. I'm sorry i know i can be quite the cave man when it comes to this stuff.
Nvm i got it :)

I just finished the demo and I'm really sad there isn't more, the only grippes I had was that some pokemon had a really hard time evolving like my rufflet and mienfoo, I also wished that the starting pokemon's battles sprites mostly charizards didn't look like the pokemon with bits that were photoshopped on and it looked more like they are supposed to look like that. I love the story and the underlying evil nature of Mr. Thorn and it really got me interested in a pokemon game where you choose if you were a good guy or a bad guy or maybe an anti hero. I think that every pokemon game up until now makes you the bland hero stereotype and I understand why they do this I think it would be a refreshing change of pace if you could be the bad guy and alline yourself with the evil organization and had to fight your friend and rival. You could also do a anti hero approach were you only joined to crush them from within the organization. There is so much potential and i can only wait patiently for you to release more gameplay.

My team was Charizard, Braviary, Gorochu, Gardevoir, Breeloom and lukagon

This game looks amazing, but I can't play it. I downloaded the demo, but when I try to start the game it gives me an "incorrect parameter" error. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?
