Hello people! Long story short: this is a crossover project between Pokémon, Made in Abyss and Etrian Odyssey.
It's a sort of dungeon-crawler story-driven, but you don't need to know anything about Etrian Odyssey or Made in Abyss in order to fully enjoy this game!

On the island of Talrega lies the entrance of the Yggdrasil labyrinth, a gigantic maze full of treasures that has attracted the attention of adventurers all around the world.
What are you looking for? Money? Fame? Or do you just want to test your trainer skills by tackling the maze?
Is there something deep down?
In this game you'll play as Nyx, a young adventurer that wants to challenge the labyrinth.
But as soon as she starts descending, something goes wrong...

Hello hello, it's time for a huge update a.k.a. "What did Paco do during all these months?"

First of all, huge thanks to ENLS for helping me formatting the first post, now it looks much better.
As for the news...

  • SEE YOU AT EEVEE EXPO!
I'm happy to announce that Pokémon Odyssey will be one of the headlines for the upcoming EeveeExpo!
Here's a promotional image I made:

  • A NEW POWER...
"May this power of mine help thee, children of chaos".
Plusle & Minun (Nyx), Kecleon (Ethan) and Mawile (Olympia) will unlock a new power after a certain event of beta 3.0: Battle Bond.
Here's a sneak peek at Ethan's Kecleon and Olympia's Mawile.

  • ETRIAN VARIANTS
Etrian Variants are regional forms based off Etrian Odyssey's enemies and playable classes; here's a sneak peek!

Starting from the top-left corner:
Rattata, Raticate, Sandshrew, Sandslash
Krabby, Kingler, Barboach, Whiscash
Smoochum, Jynx, Ponyta, Rapidash
Poochyena, Mightyena, Meganium, Feraligatr

  • PRE-BATTLE MUGSHOTS
I added pre-battle mugshots to every major fight (and a new sprite for Olympia, cause the first one had a derp face)

  • BETA 2.5 RELEASE DATE
I'm planning to release Beta 2.5 by the end of October/beginning of November.
This is just a fix/QoL/world expansion update, so you won't be able to progress with the main story, buuuuuuuuut there will be a lot of secondary things to do and more locations to explore, pinky promise!

I’m happy to hear that! If you want to start your playthrough right now know that savefiles are compatible between versions! (Unless you’ve already completed the current beta, and in that case… thank you!)

Started yesterday and the effort by this team of yours is very very visible. The game is polished w a lot of thought and love put into it. Thank you for such a refreshing twist on this franchise. One of the best one in recent years or at least in my opinion. Im just wondering how to trade certain Pokemons like Magmar n Elekid. Do i need the electirizer, if so where can I get one?

Another thing, is there any repercussion if i were to bench plusle n minun? To the plot or anything will I miss out on anything?

Edit : Umm, i cant open pokemon summary. It crashes the game. they bg and frames are there but all the text is gone and itll cause it to crash when i press back. I restarted to see itll still happening again. Ill attach a picture if it happens on my 3rd try later.

You have to complete a sidequest in Azure Cave (4th Stratum). After that, you'll receive the artifact "Magna Vis", which is basically a key item that replaces Strenght.

Thanks a bunch for the compliments! Anyway, if you want to know how to evolve your Pokémon you can just check the documentation (link in the first post). You'll need an Electirizer in order to evolve Electabuzz into Electivire, yeah. You can get one by completing a quest in the Rade of Carcino (4th Stratum) or by buying it in Napier's Shop (Aqua Resort, Naval exploration).

Plusle and Minun are not needed, so you can deposit them (at least for now); I won't deny that they will receive... something in the next update, but I won't say anything :^).

Huh, it's the first time I hear that. Anyway, it might be linked to the emulator you're currently using, so I'm gonna ask a few questions in order to see if that's the problem:
1) Are you playing on PC or mobile?
2) Which emulator are you using?

But yeah, let me know if it happens again!

Hi, thank you for the fast response, ill attach the image if that helps but to answer :

1) Im using a laptop to be precise but the game and overall quality is pristine its just this minor bug that wont allow me to learn new moveset and such so i dont think its my laptop.
2) VisualBoyAdvance, I know uve listed the 2 emulators to play this, but ive already had VBA so i thought it would be fine. Maybe it was the emulator?

After the image im attaching it, i cant go back or do anything though the audio will continue normally. But itll turn black screen. Thank you again :)

Ooooh I get it, the problem is that VBA's emulation is not accurate enough, so your game might freeze or crash randomly. That's the main reason behind my recommendation.
You should use the latest version of mGBA instead.

Update time! Update time!
We're planning to release Beta 3.0 by the end of June/beginning of July, here's what we accomplished so far:

► FIFTH STRATUM: ABYSSAL SHRINE

lSqBgwK.png


► BYE BYE, FREEZE! SAY HELLO TO FROSTBITE!

We can all agree that Freeze is a garbage status condition, so we decided to change it and use Frostbite instead.
Frostbite is a status condition from PLA. Similar to a burn, Frostbite inflicts damage equal to 1/16 of the target's maximum HP every turn. Pokémon with Magma Armor, as well as Ice-type Pokémon are immune to this status. You can't inflict Frostbite in harsh sunlight.
Frostbite will decrease the target's Special Attack by 50%.

► ETRIAN VARIANTS - SECOND WAVE SNEAK PEEK

This is just half of the second wave, so more forms are going to be added in the future.

Sfyp6XZ.png


► BEFORE STARTING YOUR PLAYTHROUGH...

When starting a new game, you'll receive information about recommended emulators and what's going to happen if you don't use one of these.

Xl6IWyo.png


► GAME NOTIFICATIONS

You'll receive a notification whenever a Stratum is cleared, a level cap is increased etc etc
