Introduction: This game is a double-battle focused Pokemon game, with the option to fight alongside Partners that join you throughout your Journey. You'll be able to view and level your Trainer's Pokemon as well as adjust them by using TM's and giving them held items. With adjusted experience formula, you'll be able to train up Pokemon under level 50 quickly so you can adjust your party to beat specific opponents.

Starters: Kirlia, Absol, Riolu


Plot: Various things have been disappearing all over Orange Peak. Is it a Pokemon? A thief? Investigate with Yuki as one discovery leads to a never ending spiral of mystery.

Features:
- Partner's Pokemon party screen (Can use TMs and have them hold Items)
- Your Partner's Pokemon can level up
- Switch between multiple Partners
- Control your Partner's Pokemon in Battle
- Almost every trainer battle is Double Battle
- New experimental Fishing mechanic
- Skip certain long cutscenes by holding the down key (at the beginning of each cutscene)
- Gen 7 Pokemon and Abilities
- Adjusted multiple Pokemon to evolve normally by leveling without having to trade, happiness, etc.
- Turbo mode by holding F key

To do's and Known bugs
- Can't use items on Partner's Pokemon in battle.
- Plan to further customize your Partner's Pokemon (Change name and Remember moves)
- Update various art assets (In battle Partner sprites, etc)
- Pokedex UI update and number adjustments
- Plan to add more NPCs
- Aquarin Town is under extreme construction (no content)
- Possible plan to disable use items in Battle and possibly focus on use of berries
- Plan to add more Partner content.
- Autosave and ways to back up trainer data.


This game is at its experimental stages. It is bound to have multiple bugs and not very much content. It's my first Pokemon game so I thought I'd post here and get some feedback before I advance my game further. Please save often and consistently check your Partner's Pokemon party to check for errors. Since I'm working on this game alone, I predict that my progress with this game won't be as fast as I would like... I would appreciate it if I can get some help from others in scripting, plot progression and battle balancing.

- Adjusted encounter rates and catch rates of starter pokemon

Some known bugs and possible fixes:

Q: This game is laggy
A: There are some locations where the game slows down (notably Clary Town). Fix coming in the future.




New Years (late) Update!!
Enter the Inn in Aquarin Town for a special quest~!

5 Tree Forest has an entrance to more Pokemon Maps

More Fishing in Aquarin Port

Other than some story progression in Aquarin Town and the New Years encounter, there hasn't been any additions to the game sadly enough...
I just wanted to release some kind of event for new years ; - ;

Download Link (A Fresh download, use this instead of the old client): Download (700mbs)

------------------------------
Minor Patch release (replace all the files from the download)

Download (MEGA)

Fixed some very minor bugs.
The TM issue with the 7th gen characters might take a while since I have to manually add each Pokemon on the TM file...

This game looks very promising. I can see that a lot of work is being put into it! I'll definately be checking back from time to time to see your progress!

I love this Pokemon fan game but I don't like all the wild pokemon encounters every three steps so maybe in the next version diel down the encounter rate a tad OK

This project seems quite prosmising! I'm really intrigued by the focus on double battle here, it's something a little different than other fan games and I'm quite interested to see what it would be like to have double battles all the time (I've never played XD). I'm a bit confused about the choice of starters, however. I get the Psychic/Dark/Fighting type triangle you're going with, but I'm not sure why you've chosen Pokemon with all different evolutions and completely different feelings to them. Judging from the fact that you've given Absol an evolution and Kirlia, not Ralts is the starter, I'm guessing you're aiming for two stage evolutions. Why not switch out Kirlia for Spoink or Claydol, and Absol for Poocheyna or Murkrow? That way, you wouldn't have to edit the Pokemon so much to keep with the type triangle and two stage evolutions. It would just make more sense to me.

Well, for the starters, I thought I'd use Pokemon that I like over trying to focus too much on the triangle.

I feel a rate of (40% or 60%) would be better for gameplay's sake
I mean the encounter rate is at 25% currently. Adjusting it to 40% or 60% would mean increasing it :o

So I'm playing this and enjoying the art and interesting story, I figured I'd just point out that it's almost impossible and kind of frustrating to try and catch other Pokemon. They break out of their balls regardless of if their health is in the red and with the double battle mechanic, even if there's one enemy Pokemon left standing it'll say "it's impossible to aim!" and seemingly waste your Pokeball? And sometimes partner Pokemon's moves get skipped over in a double battle as if it's not functioning fluidly.

I'm playing your game, and I'm really enjoying it, but I can't change moves in battle
May I ask for some pictures?
I think I've had this bug too but I couldn't reproduce it or figure out what causes this bug...

I see, I knew that people would have that problem.
Basically, what is supposed to happen is during double battles, you can only throw one ball per turn but it doesn't skip your partner's turn.

But I made a workaround solution until I can fix that problem.
If you go into the partner's tab --> Options --> Solo Wild battles, you can choose to encounter wild pokemon by yourself if you select "Solo Battles"
Only wild encoutners will be solo though. All trainer battles and event encounters will be doubles I think.

Ah see I figured that would be the solution, but after the point where you have to get the professor's coffee there's no option for editing your partner tab. I did try first instead of coming here to complain, I swear!

No, it's fine!
I didn't get to play test this game too much because I didn't have time. It's bound to have multiple bugs.


And I think the missing partner tab is my bad... I forgot to readjust some switches when I was messing around with the cutscenes;;
I made a quick fix for the missing partner tab.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4OsZRC6Blt_anJha01uX0lfNm8
Download this System.rxdata and replace it in the data folder.
Then talk to the Bulbasaur next to your house. It should return your partner tab.

I'm not sure how to get a picture of it, I have Absol as my starter, and I'm stuck on knock off, every time I try to change it just goes back to knock off a picture wouldn't really show anything

Hrmm... I know that problem... I still can't figure out how to reproduce that bug...
In the meanwhile, I believe you can use your mouse cursor to select moves and etc. so until I can figure out what's wrong, I recommend you use your mouse cursor.
