Pokémon: Etherean Dreams



Story:

Lethos, the rest of the region being obscured.

You are from Oriole Town in the region of Lethos, applying to become the assistants of Professor Oleander, the charismatic Pokémon Professor of Lethos. When she gives you a Pokédex and a partner, you decide to go on an adventure across the region, challenging the Gyms to become the best. Along the way, you will encounter the mysterious and dubious Team Wish, an organization advertising themselves as wish-granters at the cost of people's Pokémon, and discover the shrouded history of the Lethos region.

The first demo includes the prologue and first three chapters of the game, two gyms, and over 100 Pokémon from the Lethian Pokédex to find and raise, and 3 Etherean Pokémon that you can find in the game. The demos current level cap is 30. It has around 3~4 hours of gameplay. This demo is only a short portion of the full game, so all feedback is appreciated!

Updated to v1.4! Changelog:
* Fixed multiple bugs
* Fixed typos
* Added PokéPocket, with a built-in map, phone, and side quest log.
* Gave new ability to Etherean Aipom

If you played a previous version, entering a Pokémon Center or Gate will update your Region Map into a PokéPocket.​

I haven't finished the current demo yet but here are some things I can say:
Very nice story so far.
Love the Pokemon Variety.
The first Gym needs a serious tone down. Sunflora can absolutely demolish an entire team with grass whistle and earth power. Also, if it has leftover it should not have leech seed on top of that.

I think it's worth noting that the next update of Etherean Dreams has been in development since the demo's last release. The new version will be incompatible with previous versions, so if you intend on playing anytime soon, it'd be better to wait. The next update won't feature anything past the 2nd gym, like the previous demos, but will feature a lot of new upgraded and updated stuff, including a rewritten story, character customization, bigger screen, et cetera. While there is no planned release date, I'd say it'll be out around December. Take that with a grain of salt, though, as that's just my estimation based on the amount of progress currently being made. This does NOT count playtesting, but playtesting doesn't normally take long.

Thank you to everybody who's played previous versions of Etherean Dreams, and I sincerely hope you try out the future versions and give feedback on it!
