Pokémon Daybreak
is a fangame made in Pokémon Essentials, and has been in the works for around 2 years by an extremely small development team. For incentive, we have explored: the Pokémon anime and games, real world locations, mythical legends and more.

- - - STORY - - -
A meteor has struck, and you, the local professor's new assistant are assigned to the case. However, some mischievous individuals have beat you to it; and are inspecting the meteor for their own purposes. Who are they, and why is the meteor imperative?

Pokémon Daybreak introduces the enigmatic region 'Armira', and is centralised around storytelling and challenging gameplay. The game is aesthetically beautiful and there are many unique locations you will encounter on your journey, such as a meteor crash site, a castle and a cherry blossom forest. Themes of exploitation, greed, and history are examined and lore is dotted all throughout the game. Take on the challenge of becoming Pokémon Champion in the all-embracing region of Armira!

i just downloaded this game but it wont run at all no matter what i do. the regular game file wont open at all and the game-z file complains about a font that ive installed and reinstalled several times, then closes on its own. i've applied the patch and nothing changed. i seen other people also having the problem with the font thing and ive tried doing the same things to fix it but nothing has worked. idk what im missing at this point and i dont want to simply give up as ive had to do with several other games in the past due to similar issues.
