Story Expansion, the Journey and the map

Hey everyone,

I know it's been a couple of days since my last post, but I was working really hard on everything in my game. I started out at first making random maps. Then I started to try to steal some of the objects out from the original pokemon games. I at first thought I would only use Pokemon Gold graphics, but then I scratched that idea pretty early on in the week. Then, I moved on to finding custom tilesets and I found a really good one on the PC forums. Will give credit when game is finished.

I soon realized that I had to actually hand draw my map so that I knew where the towns would be, which towns would be included and how it would all connect. Now since I have that down I can start making my towns!

How it will work is...

Pokemon Encounters

I added some wild encounters into Great Plains area (midwest). I decided to make it an electric/fighting region. 

The Pokemon that will appear there are listed as follows:


In five mins of testing time I ran into Sandslash, Sandshrew, Electabuzz, Zapdos, and Pikachu. Zapdos and Pikachu appear to be the most popular pokemon to come out of this region! 

Here is a screenshot:

A Wild Zapdos Appeared. (yes level 12 haha)

Rough Draft of Storyline:

I just thought of a political themed storyline for my game. This may be good enough as is, but as always with hacking/writing I usually end up changing a lot of stuff but I think the main idea is there now!


The US Government is at a standstill. Why? Political discussions about the ethics and rights of Pokemon have become increasingly unstable. Some far left political groups have come up with the silly idea that all Pokemon should be free. They feel Pokemon should only stay with a trainer unless it wants to. 95% of American celebrities support this cause and use their money and power to talk about this any time any where. There are some on the far right who use Pokemon for profit, and profit only! This is not much talked about but it is happening. It is rumored that Bill Gates, the legendary creator of the PC system uses Pokemon to keep his millionaire status. As Bill got richer off his system the rumors turned into accusations and now a Congressional investigation has raised some eyebrows in the Government. Even worse, Congress has accused Bill of using ancient Pokemon power inside his legendary Backyard to keep his software company (Microsoft) running at optimal levels. Bill Gates has been running a ruthless media campaign bashing the government citing a liberal agenda, and suggesting that it’s all false accusations and slander. You were a 12 year old computer hacker selected by the government to figure out what Bill is up to, infiltrate his backyard and bring justice to the world. But watch out for the Paulbots (Team Rocket) they like to cause anarchy everywhere they go! 

First Post

So I decided to just jump right in making pokemon USA or North America (haven't decided yet on title). I am currently using Poke Essentials and RPG Maker XP to make this.

Currently I have created two whole maps. The Great Plains (Which will be the midwest) It's size is W: 75 H: 15.

I have also made a map called the Jersey Shore!!! It's a basic map of water and light brown (beach). This map is W: 20 H: 65.

I renamed my overlord map to The United States of America.

All of this was done from 8 AM-10:15 PM EST 2/21/2014.
