Pokémon: Blossom of the Soul

Pokémon: Blossom of the Soul is completed and now is available on Relic Castle!
I spent a ton of time on this game and making sure that it's pretty different than my other previous fan games.
There's so many changes and new features, some brought back from my older games, and some completely new. I can't wait to list them.
Without further ado, let the list begin!
Originally released October 3rd, 2020
Made using Pokémon Essentials version 17.2. (still haven't moved onto 18.1 yet)


New & Updated Features
A Completely New Region! - Say hello to the Caracara region! More info below.
Overworld Encounters - Wild Pokémon are visible in the overworld, as they are in Sword and Shield.
Skilled Mode - Skilled Mode scales wild and opponent-owned Pokémon to be a bit higher or lower depending on your team. Looking for a challenge? Try Skilled Mode!
Randomizer Mode - Every wild encounter and gift Pokémon is completely random. Overworld encounters appear the same, but are random once the battle commences.
Single Pokémon Run - The ability to choose any Pokémon at all (all 890 in-game) to use, without getting more, no evolution. Option in the beginning of the game.
Multiple Save Files - The maximum amount of saves is 10, which is plenty to have. They can be deleted anytime.
Check Encounters - Check all wild encounters in an area on your Pokégear, anytime.
The Move Master - Not a completely new feature, but the Move Master has been moved to only being in Pokémon Centers, due to the possibility of players getting stuck previously. He can remember moves, delete moves, check Hidden Power, and check friendship, all for free.
Pokémon Birthsigns - Although they play less of an important role in the game, they are still here, and are still very helpful! More info on them is in-game on the Pokégear.
The Stats Judge - Now in the Summary screen, appearing as the colored letters. Super helpful to see which stats a Pokémon excels or does not excel in.
Unreal Time System - The game runs the Unreal Time System, which means time runs faster in-game than real life.
Generation 8 Pokémon & Moves - All non-legendary (save for a few exceptions) Generation 8 Pokémon and moves are now available to be used! This also includes all past generations, and Galarian forms as well.
Walking Pokémon - Walk alongside your favorite Pokémon. Yes, this includes the previously-mentioned Generation 8 Pokémon. Press 'Ctrl' to enable and disable.
Pokémon Box System - A returning feature, the ability to access the Pokémon Storage System anywhere.
Updated Movesets - All Pokémon in-game have their Sword & Shield movesets. However, due to the removal of moves in said game, I added the removed move to the Pokémon's movesets via TM, Egg Move, or to be remembered at the Move Master.
Updated Day Care mechanics - The Day Care works as it does in Generation 7 and later; no leveling up, just for breeding and finding Pokémon Eggs.
Other Pokémon Changes - In my older games, a lot of details on Pokémon were incorrect, especially Generation 6. These have been fixed! This includes Abilities and movesets.
Improved Quest System - The Quest System has received an update, and looks better than before.
Generation 5 & 6 Back Sprite Edits - The Generation 5 and 6 back sprites looked odd before. Now, they look much better. (Again, credits below.)
Beldum - Yes, Beldum is still available.
HM Items - Field moves are still usable, but can also be used by items you receive throughout your journey.
Speed-Up Button - It's here, for those who want it. Press 'Alt' to enable or disable anytime.
Quests - 25 Quests in total in a normal playthrough of the game. (Technically 26, but... spoilers.)

The Caracara Region!

The Caracara region is the new region in the spotlight this time! It's based on the Florida Keys, part of Miami, Florida, parts of the Everglades, and even the Bermuda Triangle.
it's comprised of several islands, which can all be reached by boat.

The Story
With the new region, brings a whole new story! It is separate from my other games, which is different than usual. You do not have to play my older games to understand the story.
However,
some parts of the story will make more sense if you play Tentin Redux, The Light in Our Hearts, and The Camry Legend 2 before hopping in this game!

The Caracara region, although far apart from Camry, Tentin, or Dulyn, is a popular destination for all Trainers in the entire world. Due to its status as a melting pot, many opposing ideas
combine.
Many years before the events of the story, a mysterious group of people named the Island Protection Squad pledged to revive the region, which was struggling with climate change and pollution.
Unfortunately, the group assumed too much power, and destroyed one of the islands. Due to this sudden act, they were banished from the region, then later disbanded.
Present day, you and your friend go on a journey with two characters, a kind girl named Myrtle, and a mysterious, aggressive, and sword-wielding girl nicknamed Blade. You travel through the Caracara region, still feeling the effects of the Island Protection Squad all those years ago.

Latest Bugfixes and Additions
  • - Note: Updates will no longer add new content, and only minor bugfixes as I focus on the main development of my next game, using Essentials 18.1
    • Fixed Blipbug's and Volcarona's BST.
    • Fixed Minior not having its stats differ when it is in its Core Form.
    • Removed TM10 Hidden Power from the Outlaw Guild because it's already given by the Coach Trainer on Route 3.
    • The Stats Judge is now a part of the Move Master in every Pokémon Center. Enjoy!
    • The Elite Four's and Champion's teams are now 10 levels higher during rematches.
    • Fixed Powder move not working in battles.
    • While playing the Single Pokemon Run, only the Good Ending can be initiated (the harder path, actually), to ensure everyone stays on the same path. (This is mostly for my Discord to dissuade possible oversights.)

Known Bugs & Oversights
  • The overworld encounters may block a Trainer's view, allowing the player to pass by the Trainer.
  • Scorbunny's overworld sprite is huge. I can't find a smaller sprite...
  • Kubfu, Urshifu, Calyrex, Regieleki, Regidrago, Zarude, and the other post-DLC new Pokémon cannot be added to the game, as not enough info was known at the time I released this game. If I added them, it would cause bugs that would be hard to fix without forcing people to start a new save, which doesn't seem to be a good idea. However, the new regional forms have still been added.
  • Wimp Out and Emergency Exit don't activate in wild battles.
  • Indeedee may be male or female in either form, but not always.
  • Skilled Mode may not scale properly when playing. To fix, go to Professor Rose's lab and inspect the phone on the back wall to turn off Skilled Mode, then turn it back on, if you wish.

Website
Currently, there is a wiki of Blossom of the Soul on Wikia, started by me, and edited all by me. It's hard work, and nowhere near done, but if you want to read more about the game's backstory and lore, give it a read here.

Discord
I finally made a Discord for Pokémon: Blossom of the Soul. It's for chatting with others who play this game, reporting bugs, and recruiting for my future projects, such as Project: Revival. And now, with Project: Revival on the horizon, you can suggest a feature you want in the game, and I'll carefully consider it!. Anyone is welcome to join. Hopefully we can get people in here. If you message me on Discord, I'll respond quicker.
Join here!

Oh I must have really bad luck. Also is the rarest Kangaskhan
Yeah, the rarest is Kangaskhan, but you can always find it later in the game.

I found five of Kangaskhan while searching for larvitar though I should tell you
Also some moves can hit through dig and bounce (like revenge for dig and nuzzle for bounce)

Which Pokémon is using those moves, though? And against what? If one of them has the Ability No Guard, then that's normal.

Not sure exactly why Nuzzle worked, to be honest. Weird stuff.
To get to Dendron Town, use Dive or the Aqua Suit on the dark spots on Route 7.
You get them by completing the Mondelo Beach Club quest in Mondelo Beach.

Why is the file so big?? I'm guessing cause it's a good game or something like that. ;)
Sorry if the file is huge, I compressed the game as much as I could. It is sorta a big game. I mean, I say it's good, but I was the one who made Blossom of the Soul, so yeah...
