Current patch: 1.1.1 (Please update if you're on 1.1)
Known issues to avoid until next update
:
- The game allows you to skip the "roaming battle" mini-quest before accessing the shrines. Play the game the way it's intended or your way until a patch.
- The final Postgame Pokémon battle might not be working properly.

You're probably wondering what got changed, well I'll tell you:

*Fixed several issues with specific trainers - either not being defined correctly, crashing because of missing/typo information/ having incorrect classes
*Fixed several tile errors in various maps + passibility issues

***We found a new bug LOL, the roaming battles are optional???? You are intended to fight them before starting the dungeons, please play in this order until 1.2 is released thank you***
***Another issue with the optional dungeon, the pokemon at the end causes a crash when caught***

So I only just finished this despite starting it a while ago due to life being busy. But it was a fun journey! The game was really nice and felt "authentic"? I'm not sure if that's the right way to put it but the game really felt like it fit right into the mainline Pokemon games. It has a lot of Isle of Armour vibes. The open exploration was nice, I wasted my first hour and a bit of this game just running around ignoring the plot. It was a good time. Just for some dot points of my thoughts:
-Alto town was so cool, I really enjoyed arriving at this town and being whaaa?!?! Maybe that is an overeaction but I really liked the town.
-The dungeons/boss battles are really where this game peaks. First of all, all the puzzles were fun, new and inventive. I loved the mechanics.
-The actual boss battles were amazing, really drives home the boss battle vibe. Normally a legendary battle in Pokemon games can be pretty easy and luck luster, but the way these boss battles were done made it feel so cool.
-And finally, the battle harbor. Honestly it isn't really my thing, I've never been too into the battle facilities, but I really appreciate that a fan game made one. And a nice touch of polish to the game is just how many competitive items are included hidden around the map. Really makes the battle harbour complete.

These aren't really complaints as much as they are things that just felt a bit weird? So yeah, don't take them too harshly.
-The AI of the bosses could be a bit funky at time, I guess since it uses the wild pokemon AI. But being able to chuck a ground type against thunderous or a flying type against landerous makes the fight a lot easier when they keep using moves which don't do anything just by luck.
-Before you take down the roaming pokemon, there are no weather effects on the maps, but the npcs still talk about them. It just felt a bit weird seeing a NPC complaining about the intense weather when it looked normal.
-Felt a bit weird having pools of water in the game, being the champion, having access to the move surf, being able to use strength and fly, but not being able to use surf. It is a tiny thing and I imagine part of it comes down to the game jam restraints. But it just seemed a bit odd.

Just to drive it home, I really enjoyed this game, and I recommend to anyone who enjoyed Diamond and Pearl to play it. It feels like a nice bit of extra DLC.
