This is a Pokemon Essentials v20.1 game! It will have 8 gyms, a tournament in place of the usual Elite 4 + Champion, and expansive post-game content. In the old version, the main story could be completed in 2 hours if you were fast, and some players threw 10+ hours into the game (including post-game content).
There are two gyms in the current version. The full game is a work-in-progress.

Preliminary release is on Discord.

  • On mobile? Use JoiPlay 1.20.015 and RPG Maker Plugin 1.20.19.
  • On PC? This game does not require an emulator. It is an RMXP game, not a ROM hack.
  • The PokeHarbor download is managed by a third party and is outdated.
You have to talk to the Debug Man in the nearest Pokemon Center every time you update the game.
*Debug Man does not enable debug mode. He only handles switches, variables, and items, and does not manage major content updates. You still have to download a new copy of the game.

Soft reset if you lose a battle to minimize the chances of bugs occurring.

Notes for returning players:
  • Before updating, set your speech and menu frames to choice 1.
  • Yeah it's restart time. Since this is a re-make, I see no point in making the new version compatible with old saves.
  • Trying to start a new game? Visit the AppData folder and delete the game.rxdata. It's a hidden folder so you'll need to enable "show hidden folders" in file explorer, or type %appdata% into the File Explorer address bar.
  • If your Pokemon don't have a Tera Type, you should give them one by talking to the man in Join Avenue. Errors may occur otherwise.
  • If you're porting from a version before 4.6.1 you'll have to restart. Is anyone still on a version that old?

FAQ

  • No, not every Gen 9 Pokemon is in the game yet. Yes, all of them will be added, eventually.
  • The ONLY obtainable Pokemon are the ones in the encounters.txt (this only applies to an unreleased version of the game). DO NOT ask me if "X" is in the game. I will not take requests to add Pokemon.
  • To update the game, delete your current game folder and download a new copy of the game. Your save is in a different location (C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Itinerant Definitive Edition), so it will not be affected.
  • Shiny rate is 1/256.
  • Need to change your Pokemon's Tera Type? Visit the Tera Guru in Join Avenue!
The following information only applies to versions before 4.8.2. Please ignore.
  • Arceus no longer holds a plate to change types. New Godly Plate item behaves like the Rotom Catalog. Need to change Arceus back to the Normal type? Visit Ryson in the Frostpoint Library after the events of the Creation DLC.
  • To learn Tera Blast, visit the move tutor in Algeavel Village.
EVOLUTIONS
The following information only applies to versions before 4.8.2. Please ignore.
  • Regional Venonat requires happiness to evolve.
  • Regional Oddish -> Gloom at level 21.
  • Regional Gloom -> Vileplume via a fire stone.
  • Trying to evolve Bisharp? Wild Bisharp on Route 6* may occasionally be found holding the Leader's Crest item. Defeat 3 of them with your Bisharp.
  • Belstatue has two forms it can change into. Talk to the NPC in Algeavel Village. Make sure to bring either a Sun or Moon Stone.
  • Buneary -> Bunninja via dusk stone.
  • Asterian Skitty -> Delcatty via fire stone.
  • Evolutionary stones are sold in Cedar's lab.

Tell me in the beta version you need to start the game over again or you can play with saving from the previous version

If I start playing again, will I lose the old game save or not

I just finish the beta for small time now, i think some small new design make it fresh around the game world and thank you for it i really love it, but the plot still bit rushed i think maybe the biggest examples is how we suddenly get our first Pokémon given, maybe add new dialogue saying asteria want to promote Pokémon battle culture to new youngsters so he give a pokemon around so small stuff in story still feeling rushed around the game i think, the main character also need new sprite i think to make the game more polished.
i hope you don't mind about my review, please take your time and don't rush so you not overburden yourself, stay healthy and good luck on the project 👍☺️
Good points. I'll look into them.

You won't lose the game save, but I haven't checked for compatibility. I'd recommend getting the surf memory from the sewers before updating.

That's the end of the demo. And those changes you mentioned are correct.
