Experience the journey up to the Second Gym and explore the island Kos in this demo of Pokémon Stars, available on:

Mediafire
Google Drive
Twitter

Discord

-The EXP Share is on by default. You can turn it off in the Bag in the Key Items Tab. However, I'd recommend playing the game with the Exp Share on
-The Encounter Rate is 75% of the normal encounter rate by default. You can change it in the settings ingame if you want more/less encounters
-If you're stuck, make sure to talk to people around town. Some of them have interesting things to offer.
-The Demo ends after the second Gym. However, there is one small side quest after it so watch the credits until the end to unlock it (also dont worry that the game is stuck after leaving the second gym. This is to prevent the game from crashing. Credits should roll after like 10 seconds.)
-Just one things for now. Rebalancing is planned for the full release
-Karrablast and Shelmet evolve when you have them both in the party and they level up
-Side Stairs act very weird. Not sure how to fix it
-Grass might cause lag spikes. Again not sure how to fix it

Hi! Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I havent been able to recreate the bug myself. Could you tell me at which point the bug occured and what you did before the game crashed?
Thanks!

After finding the final triplet near the Big tree, once I defeat him and receive a call then the bug popped out and the game was ended.

Hey I have this when I walk in to the grass can you fix it
Hey! Is there supposed to be a picture because I don't see anything or are you refering to the error that Kyogesh is having?

I uploaded a new version, which will hopefully fix this issue. In case it doesnt could you maybe DM me a video of the bug happening. You can screen record in windows through the xbox game bar (Win + G)

The bug is resolved but once I went back to the town to check, I can't enter the town from the gate. I think this is another bug.

Hello!

I just played through the beginning of your game and wanted to let you know that it was a really enjoyable experience!
Your intro segment was impressive! It was a lot fancier than the average fangame. It was nostalgic to hear the gen 5 sound effects and your custom menus are really cool looking! I also appreciated details such as Alex having different dialogue options depending on which player character you picked, and the entire town coming out to send you off on your journey!

I'm looking forward to the next version of your game!

Edit: I also wanted to let you know that on my screen at least, the blurb reminding you to finish finding the 3 kids goes off-screen, so I can only read a portion of the text.

Hi thank you very much for your feedback. I'm glad you're enjoying the game! The thing you mentioned is fixed in the newest version of the download. Also in case you finished the game, please let me know what you think about the difficulty and level curve. Thanks again!

Do you have a discord link for the game?
I don't have a discord channel for the game right now but I should probably open one

Sonic boom crashes the game.
Could you elaborate? Which Pokémon used it and where? Also did it happen once or multiple times? Could you also please include a screenshot of the error message if it happens again? Thanks!

The Buizel I caught had it. I tried using it during the battle against the route champion. Huh. Strangely enough it worked the second time I attempted the battle. I'll post the error message if it ever shows up again.

Any information on the Strength, Friendship, and Change routes or is that something I should find out for myself?

I appear to be unable to exit Cheren's office. The door opens but the player cannot move, effectively freezing the game.
