A good goof game!

After the finale, the player's stuck in this machine- is that intentional? It seemed like there were a few jokes left.

I usually expect to get bored of humor that's a mix of bad on purpose/fourth wall leaning, but the variety of ways you goof around with events actually kept things fresh and fun! Some of my favorite bits:

  • "You forgot how to craft"
  • The girl wondering about the fence as the rocks do God knows what on the other end
  • Swimming girl
  • The PC Poke Ball (especially the catch animation)
  • The Poke Ball in the mart
  • The totally irrelevant blond guy in the Boss's room
  • The "flavor text" in the Bro house
  • The Geobro's abilities
  • "Ok now actually do those things"
Given the nature of the game, some of these might be on purpose, I figured I'd just put em here just in case.

Presumably, you meant for the game to close out if the player answers "No" at the start, but I don't know if you wanted this error?

It seems like, after putting in the command for my first Pokemon, I can't hit back to change it. I don't know if this is a bug in Essentials or part of some script you might have installed, though.

After leaving the cafe, the player's standing on the door for the next cutscene.

You can't speak with the nurse or clerk in the first PMC.

The rocket grunts don't have any self switches, so if you beat them but leave the map (by going to another one or saving and reloading the game), they block your path, locking you in.

If you lose against Warker, he'll jump back to "It's probably best you don't deal with those guys again", but still in his rocket gear.

If you lose against the rocket grunts, the cutscene will play again when you step back, but the male grunt will be missing.

I get this screen when I try the purification chamber in the PMC-

The last Geobros were invisible until damaging them?

If you head back out of the Yes Path, you'll go right to the mountain, even if you just started. (Maybe that's how it's supposed to go, though, since Questionnaire 4 doesn't seem to stop)

You can also walk right by after losing, which I would think was intentional if it wasn't for the fact that the cutscene starts again if you step back on that tile.

The image flashing back to the firing stayed on screen for a really long time.
...Eventually I figured out the typos were on purpose and stopped keeping track lol, but on the off chance you didn't want any of these

  • Well what will it be? - comma after well
  • Sorry all we have it - comma after sorry
  • I'll be taking back the Pokemon you stole!- Pokémon
  • I know I'm not supposed to do this but kid- comma after this
  • Learning that this game lacks a skill system you forgot- comma after system
  • Man that police guy jumped on the table- comma after Man
  • You know what I think. - ?
  • machinery and Pokeballs to the boss- Poké Balls
  • I heard its coming out- it's
  • its only the greatest game- it's
  • Oh no a teenager whose here to stop us!- Comma after no, who's instead of whose
  • Don't be silly he's definitely a unique individual- comma after silly
  • Of course my mistake- comma after of course
  • you discovered by name- my name

Hey! I ran into a softlock here. After battling these grunts, I went back into the Pokemon Center to heal, but after realizing it doesn't actually work I went back out to progress and now the grunts are back and to top things off I can't interact with them.

I pretty sure to get out of the machine you just need to walk or press c. I remember I was able to get out

I have now fixed this with a different way out.

I just downloaded and started the game. In the first encounter after the battle starts (after the intro, but still blackscreen):

Also when I said I didn't want to play a serious game it gave me this error: (although this one might be intentional xD ... if it is then sorry)

Its an issue with the code for shinies. I accidently added a comma. I'll be fixing that right now

Hey there! I don't know if I'm missing something since you mentioned that you fixed this, but I'm encountering the error in aiyinsi's first image in the first battle. I can't see a link to a patch, but maybe I'm just being silly. Thanks~

As others have said, this game was a good laugh very serious indeed. I came in at 31 minutes of playtime by the end of the game.

Overall, I enjoyed the experience. I laughed out loud several times reading what NPCs had to say. I don't think I fully understood the story, but that's part of the charm for me. The other "features" also add to the fun.

In terms of criticisms, I don't think I'd have much to write since this is clearly not a very serious Pokémon game. If you are looking for a standard Pokémon adventure, this isn't the game for you, BUT if you're looking for a short and fun entry, then look no further than A Very Serious Pokémon Game.

took me about 15 Minutes to figure out the first quiz and almost got softlocked in the second one because I didn't take the game seriously enough but I really appreciate the humor of this game :D

Hey I finished the game a while ago but was waiting until I posted my review video to comment!

I really enjoyed this game! I got quite a few laughs from the NPC titles alone, and the bro house is golden imo. I didn't really understand shadow Pokemon in the game, but maybe that was explained earlier. But that wasn't a big issue for me! The controlled chaos in this game was amazing and I had a great time!
