Pokemon Astra Adventures

Introduction:
Pokemon Astra Adventures is a fan game created by myself using Pokemon Essentials & RPG Maker XP.
I wanted to create a game which was set after the events of RBY & GSC which would tell a different story in the Kanto region.
While I know that this idea has been attempted before I hope that the new story is enough for people to want to try the game out.
As I have already created a fan games, I decided to use the sprites/characters just to save time. This may change a little later in development.


Plot:
As a youngster of Pallet Town you are now called upon by professor Oak to help him with his new Pokedex project.
As the years have gone by Kanto has updated and the Pokemon from the region have found new powerful evolutions and new discoveries have found previously unknown baby forms. Oak wants to collect data on all the evolutionary lines from the Kanto region and has tasked you and two other trainers from Pallet to venture across the region and find them all.
While on your journey battle against the Gyms of Kanto and prove yourself as a worthy Pokemon Trainer and follow in the footsteps of the legendary trainers of Pallet town.

Kanto has been at peace for several years but a new evil has surfaced which threatens the region.
Will you stand by and let the people and Pokemon of Kanto suffer?

Features:
- Characters from the Main Pokemon Games
- Mega Evolution
- Custom Mega Pokemon
- Edited 3rd Generation graphics
- New Custom Moves
- Removed EVs from wild Pokemon like in the "Let's Go" series.
- 8 Gym Leaders and Elite
- A New Gym Leader and updated Gym Teams.
- New Gym Order
- New Evil Team
- New additions to the Kanto Pokedex
e.g. Sylveon, Electivire, tangrowth, etc...
- New evolution methods
- Updated Pokemon Stats, Typing and Movepools
- Updated overworld maps of the Kanto Region
- New static Pokemon encounter structure
- Visit other regions?

Progress:
The game is now complete.
As this is an early version of the game I do intend to fix an issues which are found.

While playing through the game you may realise the game is planned to span to Johto and maybe futher depending on how much time I can put into development.
I hope to one day have a game which allows the player to travel to many regions but we shall see what the future holds.

I tend to update with screenshots/Images/Maps on my twitter page:

The idea seems a bit too fan-fiction, but it's not that bad, you're keeping it simple and with a definite purpose so it can work really well, and is pretty manageable. The tiles really throw me though - not the design, they look stunning, and fit the gen perfectly, but they feel a bit too saturated, I would adjust it (at least the green) Also, the eyes of the players are weird - the top should be black, and the bottom is usually brown.

The character design looks awesome, ie, andy, its a great looking sprite and fits the style perfectly, great job! I also really like your battle hug, its really cute and unique! I also really like how the game takes place in kanto (and johto?) but the maps are done differently, it really breathes new life into it and sets it apart from FR/LG! great work.

I really dig the work you've put into this! I hope to see more of it!

Hmm. I think that this looks really good so far, but there are a few things that could make this game pretty bad if they weren't brought to light.

  • Firstly, there are two different styles of tileset. The outdoor one looks modern and improved, while the indoor one is still the default Essentials. This makes the game really inconsistent, so I would stick with one style, rather than going with two.
  • Make sure you have a good story as to why the rivals from other generations have come to help. It's pretty bad if you just said 'Oh! Hey, Red! I'm Silver and I want to help you save the world.' Maybe you could elaborate on this, giving backstory, motives and more information.

Those are the only two things I can see from the screenshots so far. I hope your game goes well and you use this feedback to guide your work in a positive direction. Good Luck.

Thanks for the feed back, I'm still working on the sprites so i'll take the overworld trainers into consideration. I was just trying to change things up a little for the ones I've revamped.
The colour of the tileset is a little up in the air, I've had a lot of people praise it on how colourful it looks but yet again one or two comments on the saturation levels so i'll have to play with that.------------------------

The indoors tileset hasn't been edited yet due to me just not needing to add anything. At some point it will be revamped to match the outdoor map.
the characters from other gens wont be rivals, literally just because they could fit into the story. If you ever get any free time to try the game you'll see what I mean.

Pokemon Retold has now been updated to have all 8 badges and a challengeable elite four.
Game is set for more updates and is still missing various things like NPC's and rival battles.
Retold needs balance testing, If levels need editing please let me know.

The Kanto region now has 8 Gyms and an Elite four to challenge.
currently adding in NPCs, TMs and Rival battles.
Only 1 last part of the story is left to implement which should come very soon.
The game has been fully revamped in terms of levels which need testing so all the feedback is appreciated.
All Pokemon now have an upgraded movepool with brand new moves added in too!

I found a bug I believe, I was just testing it out and turned off Exp. All and when I did it turned into the TM for Fire Punch.
Thanks for letting me know. I've fixed it now so it will work properly for the next version.

I have been playing the game so far, up to Mt. Moon (Just finished Digletts Cave) and just came to applaud you. So far the game is great.

I must say I like some of the changes in the geography, extras like the Slowpoke scene in Veridian City (I almost thought it's going to be a Let's Go scene) and the museum bit was awesome too. Great job so far!!
