Chapter 1: This World Belongs to Us

Overview
A story centered around how the evil teams have affected both people and pokemon,
and their shadow still haunts them even after being long gone.
Can they really recover after everything that has happened?
Or are they destined to be trapped in an endless cycle of despair.
The choice is yours...


The Story
You and other kids from around the world have been selected to test Professor Pines' new technology,
which promises to bring an end to evil organization using powerful pokemon for their own gain.
Explore the island, collect items, befriend pokemon in unique ways and get to know your 4 rivals,
each with their own shadow from their past hauting them.
Will you become their friend... Or their worst nightmare?

What Lies Beyond the Dark?
The freedom to explore the island is yours... However, you may find things that make you wish you never did...

New Features!
TACTICS!
Have you ever wanted to give custom orders to your pokemon, or catch pokemon without the need to fight them? NOW YOU CAN!
Tactics are extra actions you can do during your turn by spending Tactic Points (You gain 1 each turn).

A living World!
Areas that have pokemon in them will have a grass animation on top of them. Sometimes pokemon will be the ones that come out too!

Healing Statues!
Mysterius statues exist through the island that restore your pokemon team to full health, no more running to pokemon centers!

Fully Portraited Characters!
Your four rivals all have their own portraits with unique expressions for each!
AKANE
Angry, full of energy and ready to kick your butt! Your asshole rival is back!
DANTE
Sarcastic and lazy. Prefers to be alone, so don't bother him (Or do!).
ERIK
A ray of hope, perhaps too much hope... Will you guide his light or extinguish it?
TANSY
Protective and reserved... She prefers to think of others rather than herself...

Your Choices Matter!
How yout interact with your rivals and the world around you has concequences. Your rivals will treat you differentely depending on how you talk to them.
This will also impact future Chapters, where eventually all these choices will culminate in different endings.

Secret Bosses?

Out of Battle Damage!

To add to the feeling of adventure, some parts of the game include sections where you can be hurt outside of battle. If that happens, your first pokemon takes the hit.

Known Bugs
  • The 1st saveslot will sometimes be overwritten automatically, always use saveslots from 2 onwards.
  • Some in battle dialogues have caused the battles to stop, this happens randomly so it's been hard to fix. Save often!
