Alternate Form Pack v0.5.12 [E18.1]

Recommended Posts

Yeah! I've set myself an arbitrary number of 100 Alternate Forms by v1.0! At least 5 uses for each Plate, whether that's new forms by evolution or breeding, or a special effect in certain circumstances!

I am already considering an Electric/Dark type! Luxray seems like an easy fit for it! I'll try to make sure I include it with v0.4! 

Partner Pikachu will also be available in v0.4 - it's what I'm working on right now! - as well as some new scripted events! (Partner Eevee will be in but unavailable until a later version!)

Oh thanks a bunch, that's good news, Partner Pikachu that's great really. And yeah Electric/Dark Luxray has a nice ring to it, too bad it's a physical attacker and (yet again) Nintendo trolls Electric Pokemon, giving the only 90 BP physical electric move (Zing Zap) a signature move for Togedemaru only, if one does not want to rely on recoil moves then well... Spark I guess.

I'm thinking I'll swap its Attack and Special Attack to make it a more Special-heavy mixed, but kinda like Pyroar in that it has abilities to boost the physical side. Also giving it Dark Pulse, and more coverage with Dazzling Gleam and Flash Cannon, since part of the design inspiration is from X-rays so light makes sense to me.

Is this compatible with Memeborn?

It is not, I'm afraid. Both mods alter many of the same files. Maybe a later version could have a download of both combined. I'd like to improve the quality of Alt Forms first.

I'm aiming to release v0.4 on the weekend of the 22nd-23rd December.

Upcoming changes include:

Bug fixes.

New sprites for Venomoth, Aerodactyl, Gastrodon (backsprites), Spiritomb (shiny), Carnivine (shiny), Golurk (shiny), Florges (shiny), Hakamo-o (shiny) and Kommo-o (shiny).

Movelist refinement for Beedrill, Typhlosion, Feraligatr, Empoleon, Hakamo-o and Kommo-o.

Base stat refinement for Beedrill, Meganium and Samurott.

The start of Partner Eevee appearing as a recurring enemy.

Partner Pikachu available to acquire.

New Alternate Forms, including Luxray and Absol.

Completing the first of these events activates the Badge 7 event for a Plate!

was just looking thru all the currently available forms and their respective pokedex entries............... the infernape change just SCREAMS goku from dragon ball, especially the pokedex entry, heck slow start kinda fits too considering the pokedex entry................ im guessing that was intentional? nicely done regardless, and im guessing the color rework is to tie in to the whole "super saiyan" part of it (the yellow-ish palette with the flames and such)

v0.4.1 is now out! It fixes a lot of bugs, including a few game-breaking ones from v0.4 that involved the game locking up after some of the Plate events! New sprites for Flame/Icicle Vulpix are included! - Please update at your convenience! 

 

The Pokémon Information is now fully updated, and there is a new section below it for the NPC and Event Guide!

Staraptor has a close relationship with recoil moves, so what about a rock/flying staraptor with Rock Head?  

 

Also I can probably do some recolours at some point if you want

That sounds like a really strong Pokémon! If it gained Head Smash, it might outclass both normal Staraptor and other physical Rock/Flying types. It would be cool to have a Pokémon that doesn't take recoil from Brave Bird, though! Since Staraptor is already a strong Pokémon, I'd want to give the combination to something else that might like raising. I could even give Flying type to something that has Rock Head via Sky Plate! There's only two Sky Plate forms at the moment.

Sure! There's a list in the Sprite Status spoiler in the first post! There's a lot of inappropriate shiny-swaps, and shiny-swaps that need the original Reborn shinies changing to visually differentiate the forms. Let me know which ones you'd like to do and I'll mark them as WIP to minimize accidents!

Hey so while I'm posting, here's some news! 

I'm working on a v0.4.3 patch with a few tweaks. The first and third Eevee events seemed to be too difficult for those times in the game, so I'm reducing their levels a little. 27 -> 24, and 75 -> 65, respectively. The first event will also have reduced EVs.

It will also contain a new event and Pokémon form in Glitch World by popular request via Discord. What is it? Good question!

There will also be a few new sprites! 

 

For v0.5, I'm looking at adding more Castform forms, as well as more Fist, Icicle, Meadow and Sky Plate forms! Probably another Plater too, but mostly looking to polish up with this version.

v0.4.3 is up! 

 

The Eevee Events should be less difficult to beat when you first come across them. Levels have been reduced, and some EVs.

Bad Eevee now has more custom sprites! Yay for Player_Null_Name! 

Earth Dodrio has new sprites, and Pixie Altaria now has backsprites! 

And there's a new Event with a new Form, if you're meme enough for it...

Hi thank you for the updates, been playing with Dark Luxray, thanks a bunch!

 

Also I'm using Partner Pikachu, but does Light Ball increase its offensive stats? I feel like it doesn't, but could you confirm that?

I feel like that could make sense, there is no Light Ball in LG:PE

The code does not make any exceptions for forms, so it should be working. 🙂 I hope you're having fun!

i did some thinking and i came to the realization that it was a missed opportunity giving the design and 2 of the abilities of musharna that it doesnt have a base stat total of 420........... 😕

 

also might i make a suggestion and for a shiny infernape have its chest orange and its flames turn blue?

I guess Unburden does work better as an English-language pun, huh? Only didn't go for 420 BST because Unburden on a low Speed Pokémon seemed fun. Boost Speed and consume an item for a radical change!

High Musharna is about to lose a lot of Attack and Speed...

 

Seems like a logical choice for a Flame Infernape shiny. I'll try to include it in the next version!

Hey! I thought you guys might like an update, let people not on Discord know that development continues

 

So here's what's coming in v0.5, which I'm aiming to release sometime around 2-3 weeks from now:

Bug Fixes and Tweaks

Defossilised Amaura and Aurorus learning Twister by Move Tutor! 

Earth Dodrio learning Rock Smash by TMX!

Toxic Mightyena gaining Poison Jab by TM!

Earth Purugly swapping Sand Veil for Sand Force!

Spooky Shedinja funneling its SpAtk into its Atk!

Musharna losing a bunch of Atk and Speed for higher memes! It also loses Unburden for Insomnia! 

Defossilised Tirtouga and Carracosta lose Solid Rock and swap it for Strong Jaw!

 

New Forms

Castform gains new forms: Windy, and Rainbow!

Two new Wormadam forms! 

Two new Sableye forms, four if you count Megas!

Another alternate form for Drapion!

Onix and Steelix forms! 

Donphan!

Boldore and Gigalith! 

Spritzee and Aromatisse!

All the remaining starters! That's Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Sceptile, Blaziken, Swampert, Decidueye, Incineroar and Primarina!

 

New Plates

Just Zap this time! But Plates inaccessible after restoring the city will be available in Agate Circus!

 

New Events

Partner Eevee's sidequest will conclude! It will be accessible after returning to Reborn City and gaining the Amaranth Badge! 

 

And, of course, more new sprites!

 

After that, work may begin on a combined Alternate Forms and Memeborn mod!

Little update on release schedule: 

Aiming to get this out on Sunday (GMT), hopefully towards the middle of the day rather than the end. 

My week turned out to be more eventful than anticipated, so I haven't had as much time to work on it as I'd like, but I said 2-3 weeks and gosh darn as much as I hate deadlines I'm going to try to stick to one if given. 

So what's the bad news? There won't be as many sprites, even recolours, with the first release of v0.5, but what I'm going to do is release a few new sprites each week, a little pack of what I've done and what's been contributed (❤️ love to the artists ❤️) , which can be added simply.

I also won't be giving a deadline for v0.6 - I'm going to be working on other stuff besides this project, and I'd also like to take my time to increase the quality of my work and learn more. I'll be giving updates on how it's going, though!

Is there a Discord for this?

There isn't a dedicated one for it. Should there be? Maybe, maybe... At least right now, I'm using the "Reborn, Evolved" Discord server to occasionally talk about it, in the pokemon-general, pokemon-reborn and sprite-edits channels.

I think a dedicated discord server would be a great idea! We can see how the progress goes, help out with what we can, and it can make for a good place for sharing sprites, ideas etc. There can also be feedback and suggestions(If something was too OP or too weak, and whether it's meant to be that way). Plus a good place for when people would like to battle each other and trade different form pokemon 😄 I'm not sure if the trading server here is the same as reborn, but it would be nice to find other players with alternate forms willing to trade 🙂

I feel like Trading's probably off the table for this one. Assuming I'm understanding things correctly, modding the game as heavily as this results in it being removed from Reborn's server, so Blue'd have to set up a whole new one to make that work. Not exactly the most practical choice one could make, ya know?

 

Also, hi! Semi-long time watcher, first time poster here! Thanks for the good work so far, BlueTowel!

Interestingly, I attempted to trade on this game mode and to my surprise, it succeeded! I believe this has to do with the fact that they are alternate forms, which makes it technically compatible with the base game! E.g In base game, Pokemon form 0 and 1 are the same unless Alolan. Basically it means that pokemon traded from Alternate forms to normal reborn will appear as normal, rather than alternate forms, although with a questionable moveset.

I think a dedicated Discord server might be too much at this time. The Reborn Discord has appropriate channels for these, and the forum too. It is a Reborn mod, after all.

I had wondered if trading and battling would work without modifications to the system, but I guess this partly answers it. I should ask the server owner if it does anything funky to it server-side! 

 

Glad to hear you're enjoying it. 🙂
