Welcome to Pokémon: Giovanni Origins

11.png



In this story, set roughly 20 years before the events of Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, you play as the childhood friend of Team Rocket Boss Giovanni.

Growing up in Saffron City, you and Giovanni will traverse Kanto and Johto together, challenging for gym badges and championships along the way. You will witness first hand the backstory of Giovanni, watching from the sidelines as your friend ventures down a dark path, turning to a life of crime.

As you explore Kanto and Johto, you will see the vast difference 20 years can make to a region. You will find characters and references to the future games hidden everywhere you look. Enjoy exploring the Pokémon world long before the stories of legendary Pokémon trainers such as Red and Blue.

Rather than level whilst holding, it's just a straight use item - the same way an evolution stone would work.



Thank you so much for the kinds words, and for your help with the bug fixing. Honest to god, I cannot believe how many typos I missed, and I thought I was pretty good at spotting them!

Awesome team to finish the game as well. I'm going to add a Dusk Stone to Pokémon Tower's upper levels as your Misdreavus reminded me that I hadn't put that stone in the game!

I plan to add some more Kanto flashbacks into the game, as well as side quests etc. To be honest, when I've finished Johto (long way off), I might send it to you exclusively first for a playthrough / bug test! Thanks again!
You're very welcome, and I'd absolutely be down for that! 😄

Just finished this and cannot believe no one like honestly no one make video of this good game, i can say the story is normal not bad but also not amazing but the main points for attraction for me is how we explore the same place as in original game but see it differently because of the different time pretty fresh for me. Thank you this and stay healthy and stay safe

Also just suggestion you don't need to do if you don't want, maybe you can make some original form Pokémon for this game, don't need many just some small number of original form because maybe some Pokémon go extinct or go migration in 20 year time skip between this and original game just to make the feeling of time span with the original game more appearance

Ah, that’s because the Pokéball is technically on another map. I’ll patch that out this afternoon. Thanks!
Since in the lore canon bill is the person who invented pc storage maybe you should made different means to store in this game just like Pokémon legend archeus, maybe in every city there new building pokemon bank where people storing their Pokémon you know like bank in our world. The explaininatioh is if we want to take our stored pokemon we need to wait few second while the teller go behind door to take our Pokémon delivered using deliberd by different pokemon bank branch in other city. It just if this game also use pc it's not like prequel

Other suggestions is some original form Pokémon for this game to show this is a prequel. Maybe predecessor form for 3 starter and other Pokémon will enforce more feelings that the game set before the main game

That my suggestions hope you don't mind

Hey - firstly, thanks for playing!

The storyline is fairly basic I agree, the main focus has been the showing of Kanto in older days, so I'm glad you enjoyed that. Thank you!

I may re-introduce some of the scrapped demo Pokémon such as the baby Murkrow as well, which is kind of like having 'original' Pokémon. Good suggestion! I am also working on making even more changes to the game to make it feel old, such as redesigning the Pokémon Centre interiors.

Thanks for playing! And I really really like that idea, that's awesome. I might see what I can do with the Pokémon Storage. Thanks for the awesome suggestion, I wonder how easy it will be to implement...

where is feebas located
An NPC on Cinnabar tells you what to do, but you
fish around Cinnabar and you can encounter Feebas.

Edit: Also, good to see an update so soon after the website's back up, Dale! Thinking about starting a new save for all the new stuff, haha

That's interesting about the move relearner! I didn't notice that, will see if I work anything out.

Max Revives would make the game too easy ;)

Awesome team by the way! Nice shinies! Thanks for playing too!

How can I find Lapras? The only in-game mention was from the old lady in Celadon, and I can't find any other clue than that

  • DaleFails developer house! Find and battle me once you've beat the Kanto League!
  • The current release features eight gym badges, the Kanto league and all of Kanto - feedback wanted!
I do plan to include Johto with a full continuation of the story, eight more gym badges, more boss battles and a new league challenge, but this will take a long time to produce. Please enjoy the Kanto release of this game, as I unsure if I will return to complete Johto in full!
