    Seeing people have talked about the music that plays during the battle with Ryland and asking where it's from, learning it's from my fangame, becoming curious about it only to find out i've practically cancelled the thing is.... wild tbh In a way it makes me a little sad i couldn't have brought out a demo -- ESPECIALLY because of how much time I've put in the soundtrack -- but I just can't seem to get myself to work on a project i've lost passion for. I'll never be able to deliver a product that lives up to my own standards if i'm not driven to work on it, and I know other people will notice too so I just don't wanna do that, yknow?

    So I have been playing Rejuvenation for quite a few years by now and boy am I enjoying this game. I'd like to congratulate the dev team and Jan for such a great story and great work overall, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to enjoy such a well made game. Nintendo should put the eyes on this game and finally learn that it's time to move on from the ez pz games they make (since they're supposed audience are kids) to a more competitive and adult orientated game. Come on, if pokemon were real, the world wouldn't flowers and butterflies like they portray in the anime and the games. That was just a small thought I've been having for the time being. Since I started my 9999999th Rejuvenation rerun, this time only having my girlfriends (few) favorite pokemon with me (believe me she's really picky) I commented with my best friend (nick's FlaFla, the guy's a legend) that this game is a meme fountain, so he encouraged me to make some, as I was progressing in the game. So I'll be posting them here I hope you enjoy them, and if you do I'll keep posting more. I should warn that some of them have spoilers and some of them attend to the sexual orientation of the characters (I'm still salty over Melia having romantic interest in Venam and not on the MC), but since nowadays everybody gets offended over almost everything I think I should warn you. In fact I find it interesting that different sexual orientations are included in the game, makes it more real. Enjoy!

    My name is Sigmund Connal. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northwest section of Reborn City in the Lapis Ward, and I am not married. I work as a Psychologist at the Lapis Ward orphanage, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of electric shocks before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I told the Reborn league that there were no issues at their last inspection. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very controlled life. I take care not to trouble myself with pokemon battles, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with trainers, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to battle, I wouldn't lose to anyone

    Hello all. I decided to compile a list of the best pokemon in reborn as a way to help newer players get through the game with more enjoyment and less computer parts scattered across the floor after you lose to shade for the 17th time and elbow drop your laptop in frustration. This list will be based on many factors such as power, strategy, movesets, defensive bulk, offensive typing and much more. There will be spoilers as evidenced by the spoilers so be aware! I hope you all enjoy. Let us begin.

    Overview Perhaps you are wondering where the "Redux" in this game's title comes from. For that, there is a long answer and a short answer. The Long: Pokémon Pumpkin is my second completed fangame, which I released in 2018. For those who know me from other sites, yes, Pokémon Castaway came out before Pumpkin. However, Pumpkin's development was finished before I agreed to join Relic Castle's Game Jam Four. Michael and I began talking because he showed up in my DMs demanding to test and I was too shy to say no volunteered to playtest Pumpkin. Things just rolled from there. A full year has passed since then. During that time I've started my most ambitious project yet with Michael, completed another tiny fangame, abandoned two other personal projects, and left the wonderful Pokémon Umbra team to focus on myself. (Alright, that should be enough plugs.) Though this is the long explanation, I won't get into the nitty-gritty. What I will say is that I've been very conflicted since the summer about the quality of my work and what I want my fangames to be. I found myself questioning everything from graphical styles to gameplay mechanics. In the end, I decided that I would remake Pokémon Pumpkin into a game I respect more. Pumpkin will never be perfect, but I wanted to do it a little more justice with the dev skills I have built up over the past year. Currently, the download for Pumpkin Redux is NOT available. The game is complete, but it needs to be tested and touched up based upon those tests. I chose to post the thread a little early to generate some interest. And because this is a Halloween game and the first day of October makes it socially acceptable to do so. In addition, I have to give a really big thanks to @Michael_ for all the hard work he put into this game. He helped me revamp trainer sprites, and puzzle out the logistics (or lack thereof) of coding. He dragged me out of the angst (a bit more literally than you'd think) and motivated me to finish this redux. The Short: Old game bad. New game less bad. Visual Comparisons What does this mean? 1. Can I transfer my save from old Pumpkin to Pumpkin Redux? Unfortunately, you cannot. There are a number of mapping and eventing differences that will inevitably result in softlocks, bugs, and other sequential problems. 2. Do I need to play old Pumpkin to understand Pumpkin Redux? Nope! The story's gone through a couple logistical refinements, but it's all the same in the end. 3. Can I demand to be a playtester to gain early access to the game? While I appreciate your offer of help, I feel I don't need it at the moment. Pumpkin is a fairly small game. The Story The game takes place over a single day, October 31st. Being the sugar-starved child that you are, you convince your overprotective sister to let you set out on a trick-or-treating adventure across the region. Her only condition? (Beyond staying on the path, not seeking out serial killers, and looking both ways before crossing the street.) Be home before midnight. Collect candy, make some unlikely friends, and solve a few mysteries along the way! Features Screenshots Download Link Credits

    Man's suffering. But I decided he deserved it when he dissed Ducklett zzz I have a soft spot for Swanna and will not stand for the slander I'd be absolutely on board with him doing a normal playthrough of Reborn, but so far I've also liked watching him play by nuzlocke rules. Just wanna see him play the way that makes him happy. I'd hate for him to quit nuzlocking just because people pressure him to, but I also don't want him to stubbornly continue it if he'd really rather just enjoy the game in normal mode. It's a decision he has to make for himself.

    Fun fact, but that's not actually the Reborn AI having problems, for a change. Abra is literally programmed to spam Hyper Beam in this specific battle so that players can use the recharge rounds to attack.

    Okay, so let's go through these one at a time, all right >A pokemon's stats are a combination of a collection of mechanics: Base Stats, Nature Modifiers, Individual Values (IVs), and Effort Values (EVs). The latter three mechanics are complex enough to get their own tab, but base stats are pretty important on their own, since these are what shape a pokemon species' intended purpose in battle. For example, charizard's base Special Attack is 109, while chansey's is at a much smaller base 35, so charizard is much better suited at spewing out Flamethrowers all over the place. Chansey, however, does have base 250 HP, compared to charizard's base 78, so it's better at surviving said Flamethrowers. >Abilities are one of the more substantial parts of the game, since they are almost as varied as the attacks themselves. Most Abilities do very different things, ranging from granting immunities (Levitate, Motor Drive, etc.), raising the user's stats under certain circumstances (Moxie, Moodie, etc.), or inflicting status effects when touched (Effect Spore, Flame Body, etc.). Every species of pokemon only has a small list of specific Abilities they can potentially have, however; charizard, for example, can only choose between Blaze (increases the power of its Fire-Typed attacks by 1.5x when at low HP) and Solar Power (raises the power of all Special Attacks by 1.5x while Sunny Day is active, at the cost of some HP). The Ability Capsule lets you change the pokemon's Ability from this list in case you don't like its current one. >As mentioned earlier, the term "EV" is short for "Effort Value". These are a collection of points toward specific stats a pokemon earns when defeating another in battle, with the type and number of EVs being determined by the enemy defeated. Chansey and audino, for example, will always give 2 HP EVs each on defeat. Collecting 4 EVs in a particular stat gives an actual point in that stat. As such, if you had two otherwise identical pokemon whose only difference was that one had earned 12 EVs in Attack, the one with the EVs would have 3 more Attack than the other. A pokemon can earn up to 252 EVs in a particular stat, for a total of 42 additional points in that stat, and can achieve this number in two different stats; it's highly recommended that one focuses on two stats like this when dealing with EVs, as the game's major opponents do the same thing. >The items giving enemies stat increases upon entry are Seeds, a collection of four items that are all tied to a particular list of Field Effects. The Synthetic Seed, for example, will activate in the Factory, Short-Circuit, and Glitch Fields, but will be completely useless if you attempt to use it on the Fairy Tale, Desert, or Forest Fields. Using these properly requires extensive understanding of the Field Effect system, which is much more complex in Reborn than it is in the main games, so I wouldn't worry about these too much quite yet. >...I'm gonna assume that by "pokemon with big, dark eyes", you mean the PULSE Pokemon. These are basically artificial Mega Evolutions (temporary super forms introduced in Gen. 6) that, in Reborn's case, act more like raid bosses than standard enemies; as such, we don't get them. >Since I mentioned them before, I should go ahead and explain Natures and IVs as well. A pokemon's Nature is a modifier the pokemon's base stats, usually adding 10% to one stat at the cost of 10% to another. The ideal way to use these is to have increase go to a stat you really want more of, and the decrease to a stat that's... completely useless to the pokemon (pinsir's base 55 Sp. Attack isn't exactly doing much compared to its base 125 Attack, ya know?). Note that unlike EVs and IVs, a pokemon's Nature will never affect its HP. This can be changed by an NPC on 7th Street for 3 Hear Scales, so don't worry if your pokemon don't have great ones at the moment. Here's a list of every Nature and what stats they affect. IVs, or Individual Values, are a bit more straightforward than EVs and Natures, but in return aren't changeable in Reborn (and are notably invisible in the main games for some reason). In short, when a pokemon is generated by the game, a random number between 0 and 31 is generated for every single one of its stats. As the pokemon levels up, it slowly gains more and more actual points in its stats until it's gotten to the generated number at Lv. 100. As such, a pokemon with 0 IVs in a given stat would be substantially weaker in that stat than an otherwise identical one with 31 IVs. As IVs are completely random in most cases, there isn't a reasonable difference between wild pokemon and those obtained from in-game events (like picking the starter, in charizard's case). The following is an image of the the EV/IV page in the pokemon's summary: >The enemies in Reborn are indeed on the upper ends of power. In most cases, they have 31 IVs across the board, ideal Natures, and from Shade onward, full EV focused allotments (and even the, the bosses before that still have some assigned). There's even a boss towards the end of the current build that but the game is at least kind enough to warn you when that's about to come up. This game is designed to be harder than the main games, and maximizing stats is one of the ways they go about doing it (I mentioned elsewhere that Reborn's Fire Gym Leader would utterly wreck Kalos' Fire Elite Four Member -even if she lost access to her ace- despite being slightly lower leveled, and I honestly don't think that's an exaggeration). Hopefully, this will have helped clear some things up a bit without making you even more confused than before. Feel free to ask if you have any more questions!

    I noticed recently that there were a quite a few people having trouble with Seventh Street here and on reddit, so I threw this together. Let me know what you think and if I missed anything. Also a couple of notes- I didn't include a lot of hidden items since the map already felt incredibly cluttered as is. The one rare candy I put on there is many since you get one opportunity to grab it. I didn't add the final spot for Bennett since I figure that the cutscene after entering the watering hole should make it clear where to go next.

Oh, also, sorry, but none of these Serborian Forms will be available in Episode 2 of Pokemon Enigma. I'm planning for Episode 3 (so I can have more time to be able to implement more.) -Mega Mew

Also some bad luck, who knew? -BELLY FINALLY GETS HIS RECOGNITION!!! -This man will learn to love Shelly in time guys, do not worry. It is inevitable. -DEAR GOD please this man needs more encounters. -Don't sleep on Swanna. The thing I wanted to say the most though, is that this man really just predicted the whole plot while just casually strolling around Ametrine. Like he was dead-on for it just being conjecture.

    I’ll say beforehand that this is the final part of the Rejuvenation theory trilogy. Part 1 and Part 2 are right here. This is where I mean to answer all questions, once and for all. So, last time I ended my post on the hypothesis that Rejuvenation’s world is an illusion masking the real world, our real world. I’ll start this by outright rejecting that hypothesis. I’m doing so based on two arguments: one based on facts, and one based on logic, therefore arriving at a thesis based on facts and logic. Let’s start with the facts: So, let’s assume the hypothesis I’m trying to disprove is actually true. Well, what’s the player character known as? The Interceptor. Which would mean he’s exterior to the illusion, based on the previous parts of this theory. That would make Rejuvenation a standard Isekai. For those of you who don’t know, “Isekai” means different world, and is known as a subgenre of animes, manga, light novels… in sum, weeb shit. The typical trope of this genre is the main character being transported to another world. This would definitely be interesting, as in Rejuv’s case, Melia could arguably be held as the main character. I do believe Rejuvenation is an Isekai, but not like this. Rejuvenation is presumably set in more advanced times than ours. But at different points in the plotline, the player character travels back in time in this game. That makes it a bit tricky to determine which time is our time. Even the earliest instance of time we see ourselves in seems to be ahead of our time, or at least on par with it, given we visit Rejuvenation Corp, an extremely technologically advanced facility, at that point. Within the world of Rejuvenation, there isn’t any possible explanation for the various phenomena the player comes across other than these two: supernatural powers, those I believe are purely illusory; and simple modern science, made possible by the technological achievements of the time. Teleporters, weather altering technology, you name it! There’s nothing in our world that can even come close to that. Now, let’s go onto the logic: What sense would it make for a deity to create a reality like this, with rules and morals akin to our world’s, but scientifically more advanced and with a whole lot of supernatural occurrences? Not to mention Pokémon, of course. Is it some sort of test for the player, and possibly even other characters in Rejuvenation? It would seem so, but, not only would it be counter-intuitive for the most part, considering the actions of those that can be held as proxies, but it also seems pointless. What would the test even be meant for? For the player character, and arguably every main character, most of the circumstances surrounding the big events they go through are out of their control. More often than not, winning a battle doesn’t make a difference in the outcome of the respective story event. Alternatively, it could just be for the entertainment of the deity. I do believe that’s partially the case, but if that were the only reason, I believe some of the features in the game, and actions of the players, would kind of hamper that. Talking about grinding and chain breeding of course. But, since we’re close to the end, let’s go over what we’ve ascertained to be true about the reality beneath Rejuvenation: Within it, all manner of fantastic phenomena is not only possible, but common, in one way or another. It’s plausible for the references in Rejuvenation to be commonly understood. It would be a reality that the deity that created the illusion would have to change, for their personal interest. Going over these points, and over the theory as a whole, I can safely say there’s only one possibility here: Think about it: the Shrek references prevail over all others, even being integrated in the characters’ psyche. Regarding all other references: they’re our pop culture’s references, and knowing the Shrek movies, all of them had plenty of pop culture references for the sake of humour. Regarding the supernatural phenomena, all manner of magic is not only possible, but common, in the world of Shrek. Naturally, many kinds of beings exist in this world, beings that could be masked as Pokémon. The more scientific and grounded phenomena, well they can be reproduced by magic too. Like the teleporters: there are plenty of different teleporting spells that may have been created. In a way, some of the magic in Shrek can be held as science. Now, here’s the big question? Who, or what would create this sort of illusion in the Shrek world? Well, I’d say, none other than the Fairy Godmother. This explains the grandiose aspect of Rejuvenation’s plotline, the focus on Melia (who resembles the idealized vision of Prince Charming, as established in the previous part of this theory), and the several attempts to stop the player character, presumed to be Shrek. Naturally, the player character is saved plenty of times by forces out of their control. I attribute this to the Fairy Godmother slightly changing her intentions. Now, instead of setting out to outright destroy Shrek, her plan is to test him, to see if he’s truly worthy of a fairy tale. Of course, some tragedies must stand in his way, for it to be a good tale. What the Fairy Godmother wants now is to orchestrate the grandest fairy tale ever. But how would this fall into the Shrek Cinematic Universe? In Shrek 2, the Fairy Godmother was defeated, and destroyed, right? Well yes, but Shrek 4 changed that. In Shrek Forever After, Shrek is tricked by Rumplestiltskin, and that results in the Shrek Universe being reset to a point before the events of Shrek 1. In this universe, Fiona is set to marry Rumplestiltskin, instead of Lord Farquaad. Donkey doesn’t even know who Shrek is, and Puss in Boots is… really fat. Of course, everything turns back to normal before the end of the movie… or did it? The universe being reset would mean the Fairy Godmother would be back, and still have a great deal of power. As she saw the universe turning back to normal, it’s possible that she managed to save herself. So, seeing how Shrek’s tale ended, she still couldn’t bear the thought of such a fairy tale. So, she made a wager: she would overwrite the reality of Shrek, as one colossal and extremely complicated test. She didn’t outright make it impossible for Shrek because, well, she didn’t have quite enough power. The use of such power even caused her to be split into the proxies… just like it happened to the deity in Nymiera’s story. Crescent, Freya and Amanda are the active ones, who can affect the player’s progress, but hold no memory of the reality they originated from. They’re effectively the three fragments of the deity in Nymiera’s story, and therefore their fates will mirror the three fragments’. And Jan? Well, he’s the original Fairy Godmother, depleted of her power, but still with some power over the world: administrative power! As you remember, the Fairy Godmother is actually a massive figure In Far Far Away, and also has her own very successful business. Meanwhile, Jan is a big figure in Grand Dream City still, mostly lead the restoration of Gearen City, and runs the Aevium League. But, how would the deity fit into all of this? Well it’s how the Fairy Godmother sees herself. This affirmation derives from the fact that the only possibilities being this, and the deity being only a reference to Monotheistic religions, Christianity standing out due to the references to the story of Adam and Eve, and the Children of Light being heralded as children of Arceus, so children of God. I ascertained that it’s the former, and in order to reach this conclusion, I had a small interview with one of the Rejuvenation devs, who confirmed my hypothesis: So, in conclusion, Pokémon Rejuvenation is a fan project, therefore non-canonical, that bases itself in the Shrek franchise. In Rejuvenation, Shrek is transported to another reality, and his friends and acquaintances are split into several people. This reality is entirely fictional, and a creation of the Fairy Godmother. Well I still have to correct one thing about that definition: Wait, what? What does this mean? Rejuvenation is, by all means, a Pokémon fangame. Well yes, but that doesn’t mean it’s a Shrek fangame. What do I mean by this? Well, let’s take a look at the first Rejuvenation side episode: Where Love Lies. Where Love Lies is a 4 chapter story that tells the tale of how Keta met Taelia, how they got together, and the tragedy they were afflicted with. This side episode is, in its entirety, a reference to all 4 movies of Shrek. However, they’re not referenced in order. I believe this was made so it’d throw the typical player off, but fortunately, I’m not the typical player. So in the first chapter, we see Keta, then Kenneth, departing from his home in Four Island, and arriving at Gearen City, which is being rebuilt at the time. He went there to try and help with the restoration of Aevium, but was disappointed when he found out all he was doing was construction working for some greedy real estate owner. Also, he was treated poorly by common people for being the new guy in town. This is a reference to how Shrek left the swamp to travel to Far Far Away in Shrek 2. The second chapter of this tale tells how Kenneth met, repeatedly rescued, and fell in love with Taelia, who had a dark secret she couldn’t let anyone see. This is, of course, directly referencing Shrek 1. Then, chapter 3. It starts in a great place. Kenneth and Taelia live a happy life, being the rulers of Sheridan, but a threat lurks in the background, just like Shrek 3. Unfortunately, this chapter does not have a happy ending. Finally, Chapter 4, as Kenneth sees himself in a new world, tormented by visions of Taelia and their daughter, Nora. To try and fix that, he’s got to go back home and confront his estranged brother, Deagan. Much like Shrek in Shrek Forever After, Kenneth sees himself in a new world where he’s alone, and strives to turn things back to normal. In sum, Where Love Lies is a big reference to all Shrek movies so far. I believe that itself isn’t only proving that Pokémon Rejuvenation is set in the Shrek Cinematic Universe, but it’s proof of something much bigger. Regarding Shrek movies, everyone who likes Shrek should still be waiting for Shrek 5. Rightfully, because in 2016, Dreamworks announced that Shrek 5 would happen, and it’d be released in either this very year, 2019, or 2020. Not much is known about this movie, but its screenwriter, Michael McCullers, said Shrek 5 will reinvent the franchise. While I loved the first two Shrek movies, I was still very curious about this. But well, recently I played Pokémon Rejuvenation. And, by reading the entirety of this theory, you’ll see how strong I found the connection between Rejuvenation and Shrek really is. That’s when it hit me: Yes, it’s an incredibly bold claim, but as you’ve all seen, I have my reasons to believe it. I say, it’s an extremely fitting end for the series. The first Shrek was about Shrek, an ogre living alone, keeping everyone else at bay, learning that he’s not only capable of loving others, but he’s also worthy of being loved. Shrek 2 is about Shrek learning how to fit in society, but not giving up who he is, and society learning how to accept Shrek. Shrek 3 is about Shrek having a hard time coping with his newfound responsibilities. Shrek Forever After is where Shrek gets tired of the family life he went through so much to get, and learns not to take for granted when he suddenly loses it. But what is Shrek 5 about? Shrek 5 is about identity. In Rejuvenation, the player character is known as the Interceptor, being the chaotic variable that ultimately determines what happens with their actions. But who is the Interceptor? Their mother was actually a doll, their father isn’t even mentioned, the identity of the Interceptor is a complete mystery. As we know that Shrek is the Interceptor, it can be affirmed Shrek’s lost his identity, and he has to go a long way to recover it. Shrek 5 is about Shrek’s quest through a completely unfamiliar world, to take back his identity and turn the world back to normal. It’s an immense project, met with many hardships, but many friends, all part of people/donkeys/etc Shrek once knew. Some may even be his friends only in this reality. And naturally, it’s filled with its heavy moments, its epic moments, and of course, its funny moments. Well… that’s it! Hope you liked this theory. Just, one more thing before I go...

    The way I see it it's all possible, but only plausible if you have played the game before and know what to expect. This is by all means a "when he loses", not "if he loses" type of playthrough. I'm having fun seeing just how far he can get. On a side note, some gym leaders are easy for some people but brutal for others, it depends on your team at the time of challenging them. I know plenty of people struggle with Charlotte even after her nerf, but I first-tried her. Whereas I spent longer than I think most did fighting against Luna in my most recent playthrough. Point is, their difficulty is kind of subjective to your playthrough.

    Yeah for sure. I'm pretty sure when he loses he's just going to do season 2 like he did with Insurgence when he first lost that.

    The links should be directing you to the appropriate post, where the information is in spoilers in order of generation. I had a lot of trouble getting the links to work consistently before, but I thought I'd fixed it. Are they still playing up for some folks? Kinda! I think Blaze Kick is supposed to be a martial arts kick. All the Pokémon that learn it are also martial arts themed Fighting types. Oops! I set Engine Koffing and Weezing to form 2 in one script to leave room for a future alternate form, but left it as form 1 in the breeding and evolution scripts. I fixed a few more bugs recently but I forgot to note them down, so I'll finish up the coding I've been working on (full species line forms and a few new ones) over the week and try to put out a v0.5.12 around next weekend. Edit: I haven't had a recent try at fixing Plate evolution to only consume the Plate after completing the evolution process - I had a try at it back in v0.2 or v0.3 and couldn't find a clean way to change it - but I've gained a little more experience since then, so I'll see if I can get it to work properly for v0.6. Edit 2: This means that Sun Salamence will no longer be available from v0.5.12, as the replacement is one of the new forms part-coded that I'll finish before uploading a new version. I won't spoil what the new forms are until posting the update, though.
