Which team is your favorite/which one would you join. Creseant or Black Fox's?

Honestly, it has to be the Black Foxes, their overall aesthetic is gorgeous (Ruby fucking nailed it) and also Amelia is there so why wouldn't I want to be on the team with that gorl 😳

Hey y'all  As the title says, we are opening questions to all of you! so ask away, whatever your heart desires, Mechanics? Pokemon? Caz?... besides spoilers, we won't answer spoilers.   B

I'd rather not say until the obtainable list is out, but I can say that Posty is being axed in Episode 6.

Try using the regular game file. Game-z isn't compatible with everything, but regular Game might work. However, there still might be slight lag with regular Game in bigger maps.

Its actually even worse with the regular game file. My pc is pretty powerful so I'm fairly confident its not a hardware issue, and I haven't had this issue with either reborn or rejuv so its super jarring.

Where can i find the electriser

Like I mentioned before (and in the main thread), please ask questions about in-game content such as "wheres __ item" in the Discussions Section, this is for asking questions for the Development Team to answer, not a Discussion Thread about where items or Pokemon are. If this continue I will lock the thread, thank you.

With the update to ep5 a good chunk of moves on my team have been changed. Is there any way of reverting back to the move sets I had previously or am I stuck with the new moves?

Okay we have decided as a Dev Team to lock this thread for the time being, until we want to open questions again to the public. This has turned into more of a "hey where is this item" over asking us questions based on development and other stuff, so for now it will be locked. Please go to Discussions if you want to ask questions about in-game content. Thank you.

With the addition of Crimson to our team, we have decided to reopen the Dev Q&A! So if you have any burning questions, feel free to ask them here! If its directed at any of us, or in general go for it!

 

However let me remind you that this Q&A is Strictly Questions directed at the Devs about development, characters, fun stuff, etc and NOT a place to ask about INGAME Content such as "Where do I find the Ice Stone" or "Where is Lucario located? If you want to ask these questions, either ask them in the Discussions thread OR in the Desolation channel in the Reborn Discord! If this thread goes off topic again then we will swiftly lock it until further notice.

absolutely not, if you DARE drink your hideous microwaved tea while playing our game, I will personally rock up and buy you a kettle, and also commit a few crimes out of sheer ANGER and DISGUST at the sins you have commited.

In regards, to e6, will Connor get a personality change in the next update, or will i have to settle with him being a oversmart idiot. (I have no problems with him being a nerd, but i really hated his dialogues in the short time i played deso😂)

Sorry if this has already been asked before, but I have a few questions.

  • To my knowledge, there are no Field notes or any place where we can read up on the field effects. What's the reason for this? Is there any plan to introduce such a feature in the future?
  • Will the PC be able to achieve perfection form for one of their pokemon?
  • Is there a page where I can read the stats and other details of customer megas and perfection forms?
  • Apart from custom megas and perfection forms, is there any other battle mechanic that you're looking to implement in the future? (For instance, the concept of crests from Rejuvenation)

I know some of these questions come close to spoiler territory, but I would appreciate if you can answer them. Thanks!

Woooooooooow, can't believe you've called him an oversmart idiot 😔 well you see at the start of the game he is a bit of a smug ass punk, but later on he develops :O we don't have plans on changing up his personality early game, but he definitely will get character development!

Hiya! its no worries what so ever, we haven't had questions opened in a while anyways so~

 

1 - So the field notes.. haha, we planned on having them within the files for EP5 however we fell short of time/we just overall forgot to put it bluntly. On top of that the fields that you really needed notes for are either used once (Cloud Field) or are essentially somewhat the same as another field in Reborn. However in EP6 we are developing these fields to have more of a personality, so there will be a Field Notes in EP6! and if we forget then please shout at me until I make one.

 

2 - who knows.. 

 

3 - There isn't a page like that here on the forums, we may make one in the future, orrrr if someone wants to develop a wiki for Pokemon Desolation, then we do not mind if the stats/other details are posted there! Tbh if someone wants to make a Megas/Perfection page here, then drop me a dm, i'll have a chat with the gang and we can decide how to go about it.

 

4 - As of right now, we have no plans of any extra battle mechanic to be implemented in the near future, this may change though! Our main focus is developing the concept of "Perfection Form", custom Megas are just an extra thing because damn, when a custom Mega is done right its gorgeous~

Hello really really love the game. So Ruby first let me say in love with the MC's and the art in general, just wondering how would you describe how the protags act and think sorry if you already answered this just really invested. thank you. 

 

Personally I feel like:

Danielle - super energetic and cheerful

Sienna - pretty calm, maybe kinda a nerd lmao

Robin - kinda sassy, not taking anyones bs hehe

Chad - is surely edgy, maybe a bit like Connor?

Diego - would be quite the risk taker, probably similar to Danielle

Avery - sophisticated, quiet, but can also be a bit blunt

 

Though, anything can work since they're just the protags~

Desolation's story has many plot twists and I wanted to ask how do you make up the story ?

Do you have some big plot points you build around ? And did you have trouble making E5's story considering the big hiatus between E4 and E5 ?

1) I have major plot points drawn up until the end of the game. The rest I create episode-episode, which gives me a huge amount of freedom without going to far off track.

 

2) I actually did find it really difficult to fill in the blanks with E5's story. So much of the game was super unfamiliar to me, and it took loads of time to work things out. It's probably quite evident in E5 that my own perception of the characters had changed significantly.
