CONTROL :
While on journey
ACTION : Open the Adventure Guide
BACK : Open menu

TIPS :
  • Every trait has its own effect. Some traits give you an advantage, some give you a disadvantage. However, the disadvantage traits will give you a bonus score
  • Every trainer type has its own skills that help you on your journey
  • You can check information on all traits and trainer types in the Adventure Guide by pressing the ACTION button
  • The longer your travel pace, the more random events you will encounter. However, you are more likely to encounter Pokémon that only appear at night
  • If you feel your Pokémon level is too low, do some training with your companion or the wild Pokémon
  • Travelling while it rains will increase your chance of catching a cold
  • The medicine only gives you a higher chance of healing the next day


NOTE :
This game is inspired by the Oregon Trail game. But with a single twist, what if it happens in a Pokémon world?
The game itself is very simple, straight-forward, uses a lot of RNG, and goes up to the second gym.

If you find any bugs in this game, please report them.

CHANGE LOG :
Fixes :
- The Pokémon shop doesn't restock on the first start of the game.
Fixes :
  • The sudden question "Will you go after it?" error
  • Medical treatment from the doctor at the hospital
  • After losing in a wild battle, the player doesn't take a rest
  • PokéMart doesn't sell berrypot
  • NPC Kristy at Bard Town says she is looking for Espurr, not Natu
  • Battling with DBandit error
Fixes :
  • If the player already has pneumonia, they can catch a cold
  • If the player is training in Rosefly Woodland, the background does not load
  • Error when using salves
  • Error when using medicine on a starving or hydrated player
  • If the player has an item with a quantity of one and it is taken by the burglar, the item is not removed

Hello! I've been playing this game for a while, there is a vod on my twitch if you want to see, but I'm really enjoying it! I love games which really try something new and this is so cool to see Oregon Trail crossed with Pokemon! It all seems so well done and cute, it's such a cool system that you've implemented!

Sadly I have been running into a few things that crash the game, you can see them in full in the video, but to just report them quickly:
-When visiting the nurse I experienced a crash
-Sometimes while walking, without a pokemon stealing from me, it will just randomly say "Will you go after it?" and it I say "Chase it" the game crashes.
-In the last big route, there is a certain trainer "DBandit" which crashes me when I run into him.

I'm looking forward to fishing the game though, great stuff!

Thank you for playing the game. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. It's been fun developing this game.


I just updated the download link to v1.02. It fixed those bugs.

Ran into this on my first playthrough. Wanted to make sure whatever this was is caught asap, so posting this before posting my full feedback. First journey to the first town, just a heads up! Playing on the most recent version as well

Love playing through this, so far! Just a few things I'd personally recommend slash critique!

I somewhat feel like 6 Pokemon for every team, even the starting ones can be a bit much. Also, experienced a crash. But I really am enjoying the original and new take! Love it!

Truly hidden gems and need more cover up, even when i fail my journey i still feeling satisfaction because every playthrough is its own story, this game really reminding of Oregon trails, the bad in this game maybe it's too short because it's a game jam

hope someday if you have free time maybe you can look on this again and don't forget the most important thing is don't forget to stay healthy

The game is pretty fun I have to admit, but it is rather difficult to level up my Pokémon due to a fear of running out of food and not having enough money to pay for more food.

Yeah that tends to happen if one of your characters ends up getting sick from the rain I believe. Also I found out that you can sell any Pokémon you have to gain some extra money.

owww where can you sell?
You are able to sell Pokémon once you reach the first gym location. There is a Pokémon adoption center there where you can sell Pokémon that you captured as well as purchase Pokémon that are up for adoption. However, there are a couple of things you must know.

1: Pokémon that you purchased from the Pokémon Adoption Center are treated as Trade Pokémon, so they will end up disobeying you if they go past the level cap.

2: There is a glitch in the Pokémon Adoption Center where if you only have one Pokémon left in your team while you are there, you will be unable to leave as the game thinks you are trying to sell Pokémon.

3: Pokémon sell more if they are at a higher level and how rare they are.

4: You will be unable to sell your Starter.
