Not everything is what it seems.

◈ Pokèmon Parallax ◈
Welcome to Pokèmon Parallax, a fangame made for the Relic Castle Game Jam #6!
This game takes place in the world of Pokèmon, where you get to play as Looker, A.K.A 100kr, a renowned and famous officer of Interpol!

The Kimlik Islands, called the land of a thousand identities and ages, stranded in the middle of the ocean. The region's leauge is blossoming, tourism is booming - but under the surface, a strange and fashionable troupe are threatening to undo all that progress.

Those who come to Team Masque's famous masked balls, held for every occasion from the conductor in white's birthday, to the end of the world as we know it - would call them escapists. Harmless, perhaps, just wanting to recapture a bygone age where the worthy told the rest eat cake.

Those who've watched them take whole cruise ships hostage would sing a different tune. They might well call them hedonists, and the admin with the fiery hair might well agree with you. (Just - ironically.)

And those who heard the leading lady with the golden microphone singing to her audience, about how the world outside's a bit of a sham, how they're all free as birds, about stories of daring-do and divorce played to the grunt's mocking laughter, might call them or her...a cynic.

Still...what's the point of being escapist, if everyone else seems hell bent on ruining your fun?

No-one even knew just how many Team Masque members there were until a short while ago. They have no plan, at least not one the leader's letting on about...and also no restraint.

Far, far away, new Interpol recruit Looker only has one, very simple mission: stop crime. When he's sent to the Kimlik Islands on an inside job, with zero leads and zero idea what he's in for - Looker feels like he's finally in his element. His handler, Nanu, thinks he's gone in too deep.

But infiltrating the Masque should be easy. Put on the mask, put on a little nihilism too, fit in with the crowd, do a little eavesdropping here, a bit of espionage there. Then - be the hero and hopefully escape with your life.
...Will his gamble pay off and save Kimlik Island, or has Looker gone in too deep?

This game was made using RPG Maker XP, and the Pokèmon Essentials v17.2. This game was developed by LuxDiablo, AnonAlpaca, Maks, and ToxicStall. A variety of resources are used in this game, all of which are linked and listed in the "credits.txt" file in the game's download folder.

Notes: If you encounter a bug or would like to suggest an addition to the game, or if you would like to discuss the game and your progress, please join the public Discord server that we have set up for the game! Additionally, you're welcome to follow my Twitter, as I post updates on the game's progress there.

Stay away from police officers and criminals, and hide to your best ability to reach your end goal!

I was playing and ran into a bad end, not sure where I messed up?
I was on the boat with Nanu and he told me to use the Growlithe I got from HQ...but I had never received a Growlithe and don't know where/how I missed that. I checked my menu to be sure but there was no pokemon/party option. Anyway I couldn't leave the room so I tried going to bed again and the cutscene tried to replay, but Nanu was standing in my way and the game locked up.

Nanu says that there's a package on the table, so you have to interact with the table. I should probably add a sprite or something there to make it more clear. My bad!

EDIT: v1.0.5 is out! This fixes a lot of the bugs that the initial release had. If you're experiencing any bugs, please join the Discord server in the post so I can address them directly. If you installed a previous version, delete that version and download this one, your save should still remain!

Hi, so I've been playing the newest version, and I encountered a bug, once you get to Port Ureni 2 Pokemon follow you, instead of one. Thought I would tell you this so you could patch it.

The download seems to be broken. Says this error normally happens when the file is no longer hosted on Mediafire.

That's weird, I'm able to download it, and other people are telling me the download still works. It might be something on your end?

Hey! This is a common issue that I'm trying to fix right now. Do you know where you died specifically, and where you were teleported back to? Thanks for playing!

Bump: v1.4 is now out! This mainly fixes the infamous double follower glitch, but it also scaled some levels down for the sake of having a less grindy game. Also, some passibility and items were fixed, and a big soft lock glitch was fixed in Zafer City and Kurasal Island.

The first time was on the starting boat and the second was to a trainer battle early on.
