Pokémon Zorua (Placeholder Name) is a game I've put over 2000 hours of work into. I am doing my best to make it possible with a team of only myself. You play as a Zorua who got caught up with some events of <insert evil team name>. You disguise youself as a trainer and enter the league challenge to get strong enough to stop <insert evil team name>. Their goal is to obtain unlimited power and control fate by collecting every Legendary and Mythical Pokémon there is in order to awaken Arceus and make it grant their wish.

- A small roster of new Pokémon.
- 70+ Regional Variants of old Pokémon
- Includes Pokémon up to generation 5, which are all obtainable.
- A new type (needs more work on it)
- Custom music
- 20+ hours of gameplay
- 2 regions to explore + Battle Island
- Returning faces from older Pokémon Games
- Item HMs
- Special Formes given to forgotten and otherwise useless Pokémon
- New items that improve on the available strategies
- Following Pokémon
- Player Customization (WIP)
- And more...

Progress & Release
Since I am working on it alone during my free time I do not think I will be able to release the game before Fall 2020.
Currently the game works bug free up to the 8th gym. But there are still a ton of features that need to be worked on. A ton of reworking on old maps, and some balancing on the storytelling. Since english is not my native language I have to rewrite the dialogue a lot. A ton of things like the tilesets and the GUI are things I still want to change some things on. Another thing is that I've been working a ton on the music for the game, since I've only finished about 20-30 scores up until now there is still a ton of work left to do.

If you're interested in updates on the game, you should check out the following links:
Discord - In here you'll see a ton of updates on the game, screenshots to sprites. I post anything there.
Twitch - Every Sunday I stream Pokémon over here. When I'm not playing Pokémon Platinum Randomizer I'll be playing some of Pokémon Zorua in case I need some feedback.
Youtube - I don't post much on youtube from Pokémon Zorua. I only really use the channel to make some entertainment content and to improve my skills.
