    This is an except from my Patreon: "Every version I get a lot of questions asking what contributes to what ending. Will this decision put me towards the good ending? Maybe the bad? The worst? I became sort of tired of these questions, but I understood that it's because nothing is really clear outside of obvious circumstances. For example, the true ending of the chapter involving Melanie. If you get the good option, you'll know. If you get the bad ending, you'll know. But what about other choices in the game? How will I know? It's a long game and I would like to know which choices matter, etc. Well, from v13 and onward, you will know! Every quest that contributes to any ending will notify you. But what do I mean by "notify"? =============================== Quests that contribute to the good and true ending will display like this: https://imgur.com/XhoXDzZ Quests that don't necessarily contribute to any ending will display like this: https://imgur.com/WQPPJYX =============================== But this transparency isn't limited to quests. Any decision you make will clearly display which path it set you down. Decisions that contribute to the good ending will display: https://imgur.com/pzjphHj Decisions that contribute to the bad ending will display: https://imgur.com/APSyL8U ...And decisions that contribute to the worst ending will display: https://imgur.com/hpCBLyz This is all very WIP and the gears will disappear moments after they're displayed. I'll probably make custom graphics for each one, but for now, these are their placeholders. =============================== Speaking of Quests... They've also gotten an overhaul with the use of Quest Cards! These are just a few examples of the new Quest cards I'm working on. Really excited for them and gives each quest their own feel of importance. As shown above, each card will be personally stylized as well. Overall this is mostly a cosmetic change rather than a gameplay/mechanic change. Just one of those things I'm working on when I'm tired and requires not much effort from me." Let me guys know what you think. Any suggestions? Anything else you want clarity on? This is a great time to ask as I'll be watching this thread closely for a while. ...63% hype... Even though most of that is inflated bc of Gen 8 stuff.... But still!!

    Welcome to Pokémon Desolation - Story - What is a dream? A series of thoughts? Images? Sensations? No... perhaps it's something more? Welcome to the Ayrith Region, a large land mass split into several islands. Ayrith is clouded in mystery, with strange, inexpiable events happening in every corner. However, somewhere deep down, there is something more to this mystery. Something unexpected, impossible even. You will uncover this secret, and go down in history. What is your dream? Is it to be a hero? The outcome of Desolation is strongly based on the choices you make. Choose wisely. - Features 5.1 - - Episode 5 - Somnium - Important Note 1: If you are updating from E4, you may continue to E5 content by entering your room in the Cellia Manor. Important Note 2: Episode 5 runs on a new, faster engine, MKXP. To run Desolation, use 'game-z.exe'. If you issues with game-z, instead try running 'game.exe'. Finally, please note that during the update to Gen 7 and the movement to the new engine, many move ID's had to be shifted, resulting in a small number of instances where Pokemon have different moves than they should (ONLY in save files created prior to E5). - Download Links - 7 Badges are available as of this release.

    I really like the idea of the notification about decisions, but for this to work and not ruin the mystery and suspense, especially in first playthroughs, it needs to have an option in the Options menu to switch it OFF. Just saying. That should not be impossible and for something like this it needs to be there in order to give people the ability to choose organically, and then not so organically during later playtrhoughs if they like it. Everything about the quest cards is awesome.

    Hey all! As you know I'm the new spriter/artist for Desolation, and since I've been working on this for nearly a year I have some goodies to show... But first! How this'll work is that whenever I have enough art to show, I'll just reply to this topic with it and edit this main post to include it, along with the upload date of the newer images! Easier for you and me to keep track that way~ also some shameless plugs,,, my twitter and instagram uwu Lets goooooooooooo New Desolation Logo: Cover Art: Inspired by the lovely @Zumi and her incredible character art for Pokemon Rejuvenation, I felt that it was fitting for the Desolation characters to have similar artwork as well! Especially after being gone for 3 years, aha~ Sorry for the Green Charlotte Fans... I've got something better :^) Character Art: And well, I couldn't help myself so I made icons of them too! Free to use, and no need to ask~ Character Icons: Thanks for stopping by, everyone! I hope you liked the art I made, as well as the new design for Ava! **Note, This thread is for all Official Artwork for the Game, If you have created fanart, please post it in this thread here!**

    Hey guys heads up. This AMA is more relating to questions about development, key aspects of the game and fun questions to ask us at the dev team, this is not intended to be used to ask about in-game content, for example "wheres this key" or "is this TM/Pokemon available". Please if you want to ask questions about in-game stuff, go to the Discussions Section. If more questions are asked about in-game stuff, then I will be locking this thread, thank you.

    I managed to get it to work Posty! Letting you know just in case, nvidia’s 3D settings has to be on default in order for full screen to work because the gpu’s antialiasing and texture filtering does not support mkxp. So if they have nvidia’s gpu, this will be the case. This instance might really happen only to me lol but just in case somebody goes through the same thing, this post is out here.

    I think the quest log is really useful for the people who do hiatus on their game and don't remember at what point in the quest they are lol About the path markers I'm not so sure an explicit warning about your decision being good or bad. In one hand, I would myself like to know where I'm going with my decisions (and sometimes you're going for a specific ending, for completion, etc) but somehow I also feel like irl decisions are not often marked or telegraphed like that. But its just my opinion. I think it's overall a pretty neat update!

    This is exactly the reason why a terrain setter like Rillaboom breaks the mechanic. It replaces strategy of using moves to change them to your own advantage with just sending out Rillaboom and being done with it. It essentially lets you just bypass the whole thing outside occasions where the opponent happens to have moves to take back control.

    you did this like i'm seriously genuinely just you fucked with the code. you turned your budew into an egg. you were fucking obnoxious to the devs about it. but you fucking did this. now i know what you're thinking "cass its switch 999 pls believe me i can game dev" and here's the thing that switch doesn't exist in desolation you put the switch in you triggered it and then when you solved the problem you made you patted yourself on the back for it (re: this thread) stop wasting everyone's time.

    Hi! Another delay, I'm sorry! Here's the status update: I now have more regular time to work on altforms, but not as much time overall. Before I'd spend a few days working on it a lot, then a few days off, now I'm spending a couple of hours per night on it. Mapping was going very quickly with the earlier work pattern, but is not so quick with the new one. Mapping is allllmost done. I tried to cut corners and keep it minimal for purposes, but I also didn't want to make something terrible or end up in a situation where people don't want to update for shorter travel to the wild areas. For the last few maps, I think what they're intended to be would have been lost if I'd tried to do them quickly and basically. What am I talking about? I'm saying I had to make some new tiles, some just recoloured, and some from scratch because I couldn't find anything suitable elsewhere. Here's a sneak preview! Which leaves eventing and teambuilding to do in July. I'm really hoping to get it out by the end of next month, but it seems like every time I give a timeframe it ends up slipping. Probably by the end of July, though.

    As soon as I made it to the Railnet, I went up to the counter. The clerk could see that I was out of breath and asked me if I was ok. I told him that I was but I needed a ticket to Route 2 quickly. It was urgent. He printed up the ticket, I handed him the money for it and was soon on the train. As I was riding on the train, I was worried about what Venam was gonna say to me. I was definitely way later than I should have been if Karrina didn’t hadn’t made me do that whole thing with the mad scientist. After a half hour train ride, I made it to the train stop. As soon as I stepped foot out of the train, Venam was there with Ren and she did not look happy. Matthew: Uhh… He- Venam: Where the hell have you been?! We’ve been waiting here for over an hour for you! Matthew: It wasn’t my fault! Karrina had me do some kind of stupid initiation thing to get into her club before she’d give me the TM. Venam: You really think she’d do something like that Matthew? Matthew: -gibberish sounds- That’s what she did! Ren: Look, all that matters is that he’s here now. Isn’t that right Venam? Venam: -sighs- I suppose you are Ren. Matthew: Did you guys find her? Or any clues that she’s been here? Ren: Unfortunately no. Venam: We’ve searched everywhere here but there’s been no sound of her. Matthew: You don’t think she got captured… do you? Venam: Hell no! She’s too smart to be captured like that. I know she’s got to be around here somewhere. Ren: Since she’s no where around here, we were about to take a look inside Amethyst Cave? Matthew: Amethyst Cave? Where’s that? Venam: It’s at the end of the route here. Me and Ren are gonna go ahead there now. Please don’t come there late like you did here. Matthew: But I… Ugh. Fine. Go ahead. Venam and Ren ran ahead to the cave. I made sure I had everything and started to be on my way. Just as I took a couple of steps forward, someone came rushing past me, pushing me forward a bit. After catching myself from falling, I looked up and could see a girl with a big grin on her face. She didn’t seem at all sorry for what she did. Matthew: Hey. Do you think maybe you can watch where you’re going next time? ???: -laughs obnoxiously- Sorry kid! But you snooze you lose! Matthew: Hey! I ain’t no kid! And what do you mean by that? ???: Can’t say but I gotta run! Bye! -runs off- Matthew: -feels my pockets- Geez. What a… Wait a minute! I felt my pocket where my wallet usually is but this time, it wasn’t there. I pulled my pocket inside out just to make sure but it wasn’t there. My wallet was missing. Then it hit me. That weird girl that ran into me and she said “you snooze, you lose.” Did she take my money? She must have. Why else would she do that? I ran after her going the way she went. It didn’t take long for me to find her. She was behind some rocks. Matthew: Hey! You took my wallet! ???: You sure about that bucko? Matthew: Yes! Yes I am! ???: Even if that were the case, you can’t get past here now can you? Matthew: Heh… -laughs- ???: What’s so funny? Matthew: Vanaminca! Rock Smash! I brought out the PokeBall that contained my Seviper and it came popping out of the ball and smashed the rocks in front of me into a million of pieces with its tail. I returned it back to my PokeBall. The girl looked on in shock. She then bolted again and I chased after her. I came across a bridge and could see a weird looking tree on it. It looked seriously out of place. I walked up to it and it started to speak. ???: Cha cha cha! Chitty Chitty chee chee cha cha~! Matthew: What the- ???: Yo! What’s that?! Too slow! Laterz! -runs away- Tourist: Did that tree just… I ran after her again, leaving the confused tourist pondering about his existence in this life. This time, it took me a while to find her but I eventually did. She was still disguised as the weird tree. I kept pestering her until she revealed herself to me. ???: Damnit man! You just don’t give up! Matthew: You took my wallet! Why would I give up that?! ???: But it’s just a wallet! Like come on… Matthew: It’s my money! ???: Ohh please! You’ll make that back with profit within a few days! Hell. Probably just a couple of hours. Matthew: I… Uhh… Not the point! ???: Ugh! This is so annoying! Whatever! Time to go again.~ Teleport! Matthew: Ohh no you- Before I could finish my sentence, the girl literally disappeared in front of my eyes. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. The girl was no where to be seen anywhere close the area. I had to search the area again. It took me a bit longer to find her but I finally did. She was in front of the entrance of, what I presumed was, Amethyst Cave. I snuck up behind her and scared her! Matthew: Hey! ???: Ahh! Ohh sheesh. You scared me! Matthew: Yea! Now how about my wallet?! ???: -laughs and then starts to laugh maniacally- Matthew: What the hell’s so funny? ???: You man! You’re a riot! Matthew: Wh… What? Nim: The name’s Nim. Don’t forget it! Matthew: I don’t care about the name! Give! Me! My! Wallet! Nim: -chuckles- I’m sorry bro but I don’t actually have your wallet. Matthew: What do you mean?! Of course you do! Nim: Have you checked your back pockets? I was annoyed with her trying to stall for time to somehow steal my wallet successfully but I decided to humor her and feel my back pockets. To my shock though, I could feel something in them. I grabbed the item and pulled it out and looked at it in shock. It was indeed my wallet. It was with me all along. But how was she able to grab that out of my regular pocket and put it into my back pocket without me noticing that? Matthew: H-How did you- Nim: Told ya.~ It was a nice prank though wasn’t it? Matthew: If I wasn’t in a hurry, maybe. Nim: Ohh well. So you know my name but I think you should know that I already know yours. Matthew: You know my name? Nim: Mhm. It’s Matthew. Matthew: But how did you know that? Nim: I was behind Venam when you 2 were having your Gym Battle. Matthew: But… I didn’t see anyone there. Are you always watching her battles? Nim: Yep! She’s not very observant so it’s easy. But you really caught my eye when I saw you battle her. I had to see you for myself! Matthew: Well… you’re seeing me. Can I go now? Nim: Hmm… Not unless you battle me. Matthew: …You’re not gonna let me pass unless I do battle you aren’t you? Nim: Hit the nail right on the head! Matthew: -sighs- Fine. Let’s get this over with. -Grabs a PokeBall- Nim: -chuckles- Ohh you’re so funny. Matthew: Why? What’s so laughable now? Nim: We’re not gonna battle here. Matthew: Then where we gonna battle? Nim: You’ll see. Teehee. The girl held out her arms. Suddenly, she started to float up above the entrance of the cave. I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing at that point in time. Her whole body seemed to shine with a golden color. There was a flash of light. When it faded, we were in a completely different area. The ground was a purple color and the air felt different that usual. This crazy girl teleported us somewhere else. There was also a battle field symbol on the ground. I looked over and saw her kneeling over, trying to recover her breath. Matthew: Yo wait! Are you ok? Nim: Y-Yea… N-Note to self, it takes double the amount of energy to bring more than 1 person. Matthew: Ok. Where the hell are we? Nim: I’m so glad you asked! I liked to call this place the Altered Dimension. Matthew: The Altered Dimension?… Are we not on earth right now? Nim: I don’t think so. Matthew: … What the fuck?! Nim: In this place, my Psychic powers are much stronger than usual. Now… no whining and no complaining! Matthew: But you just teleported me somewhere that isn’t on fucking Earth! Nim: Shh! You’re going to be thrown into situations that aren’t favorable. You’re going to have to get used to it! Matthew: But like this?! Nim: No! It’s battle time! Before I could respond back to that, Nim threw out 2 Pokemon. Apparently this was a doubles battle. I could only do 1 thing and that was to proceed with the battle. I sent out my Frogadier and Seviper and the battle started. I was easily able to overcome Nim’s Pokemon and come out with the victory. Nim: D-Darn. You’re too strong for me. I mean you took down Venam easily but I didn’t think you’d take me down easily. Matthew: Well thanks. That was actually pretty good training for my Pokemon. Nim: Well you won fair and square. You’re really something. Matthew: Think you can take us back then? Nim: Yessiree! I’ll bring you back home. Just like the 1st time, Nim floated up off of the ground and started to glow a golden color. A bright flash of light blinded my sight. When my sight came back to me, I was back in front of the cave entrance. This whole ordeal was very weird but for some reason, I felt like it was a good thing I met that person. Before I entered the cave, I swear I could hear Nim say that I better save Melia. I smiled hearing that and entered Amethyst Cave. POKEMON TEAM! CHARACTER RATES! TIME SPENT IN AEVIUM!

    well... This batch is out a lot earlier than I initially planned for, but considering I have a lot of work I need to do this upcoming week that isn't Rejuv related, I felt it'd be a good thing if I did this one in advance. And lo and behold - probably the largest batch of characters thus far! ...If you don't count the rift mons from one of the previous batches, that is. Whatever the case, let's take a look at the characters that received art. As a continuation of chapter 12, Mosely received art of both her regular timeline outfit and her bad future outfit. Next to that, we've got the Bad Future editions of Kenneth, Amber, Tesla and Valarie, along with Melanie, Melia in her Absolute God Mode(TM) outfit (for a lack of better terms. honestly i don't think Jan ever gave it a proper name), Souta and Rift Aelita! And speaking of rifts, as a bonus, I've added artwork of Rift Garbodor as well. Might as well, no? Here they are! Rift artwork: man, did i tell you guys i love drawing spooky shit? because i do. it's so incredibly fun. y'all should try it sometimes if you're used to drawing mostly bright and colorful stuff. it's SUCH a nice change of pace Also, as a general note, I've sorted the full resolution artwork per chapter now in the albums! Some characters that appear in new batches of art might be sorted in a different chapter than the batch of art they appeared in when looking at the full res art albums. This was i.e. the case for Amanda who got placed in Chapter 1, as is the case for Mosely as well -- her regular outfit is placed within Chapter 4's album. This is done to avoid spoiling people who might need the art for stuff like thumbnails (or just wanna see the art) for content they haven't reached yet in the game. Hope that clears up any confusion people might have with how the artwork is sorted. regardless, as per usual, all the art can be found back in the official art thread, along with bonus icons! i haven't done the wallpapers yet this time around bc i'm a lazy bastard but i'll have them done by the time the next batch rolls around. anyways, that's all for now! see y'all later o7

    Development is going well! In the midst of Beta Testing, ironing out any small errors and bugs, adjusting teams if need be and overall polishing up the game as a whole. We are still aiming End of June (in a week or two) and we have a unexpected surprise which we are happy we were able to get sorted during this period of testing, but more of that will come closer to the release date :] idk if we will be giving you guys a set date but just expect it looming around the corner when you least expect it!

    Yes, some obtainable Pokemon have been axed, and replaced with others. I won't delve into which have been replaced. The manor will have a small handful of upgrades in E5, but nothing extravagant. I suspect that the whole manor system will change dramatically in the future, particularly in E6. Thanks! For now, we won't be accepting new ideas for custom mega evolutions. We want to be really careful with how we put custom megas into the game. I want them to feel authentic, and not out of place. For this reason, we're being very cautious in our approach as to how they are implemented. We have a small catalogue of mega evolutions in the works, but we'd prefer to keep it small.

    1. So previously if people remember, Desolation was going to have 16 Gyms. After thought and consideration also the level curve Desolation will now only have 12 Gyms. This will be more suited for the story we want to develop 2. Umm I guess? Depends on your party idk 3. For the engine, most likely we will be. Since the engine was produced and released during the ending party of v5 Development, we didn't even consider it but v6 maybe who knows, we'll have a discussion about it, cause Reborn does feel extremely nice now I will admit. Nope! like Reborn/Rejuvenation, your savefile from v4 will be compatible with v5. However we highly recommended that you do create a new savefile because with the complete overhaul of graphics, trainer battles and encounters, some parts have been redone and other stuff that you may miss out on if you continue from v5. It would be worth playing again from the start, plus the game has been on hiatus for 3 years, you might have forgotten some parts of the story

    Hi everyone! I just finished Where Love Lies, with the true ending, and I must say, what an incredible game! I wasn't expecting that this version would have so much content, and such a beautiful story. First things first, I feel like this game made me finally have some kind of connection with Kenneth (or Keta), and I'm sad now to think about how he is already dead at the point of the game I'm at. I feel like when that arc happened in Pokémon Rejuvenation, his death didn't hit me like now, due to this game. But, to be honest, that part of the game was so long ago, so much as happened since then, that I really don't remember much of that arc of the plot. I think I'm not the only one that feels so bad for Kenneth too, because he was such a nice guy, he just wanted the best for other people, but due to the red-haired girl, his life was ruined, and he became "broken" in the end. This is one of the problems I have with the game. I found really odd how, in the true ending, the red-haired girl begins to say how she choose him randomly, and she didn't have anything against him, her real motive was related to Taelia, then to manipulate him to kill himself, just because her job was done (?). Like, I really don't get it. I understand the 2 situations separated, but not together, with the same character (I hope I made myself clear). Also, why did she took so long to try to kill him (she made him feel guilty of Taelia and Nora's death, but she didn't do anything else in over one decade)? I also don't understand why she didn't care about him, because he was just a test subject, why she wanted him to die so badly. It's because of her that his life becames even worse, when he finally gets in good relationship with his brother, but then he just dies. In the end she kind of just gives up that idea, but it's interesting to think about it. It also makes me a bit unconfartable to think that in another timeline, Taelia killed Kenneth at such a young age. That scene from chapter 2 really made me question some things in their relationship. That blind girl was also a bit cruel if you ask me, because she knew what Kenneth was going through, but when he started to hallucinate, and tried to kill her (when, in reality, he really didn't want to), she just made him fell to his death, WHICH MADE HIS LIFE EVEN WORSE. I really feel for Kenneth, he went through so much, just to be seen has the "Sensei who didn't care about others", when he really cared, and because of that his life on earth became hell. I also find it a bit mean when that blind girl never helps him after that, she knew that sepating his soul with his body was a bad idea, but never tried to help him after that. But well, in the end, I think this game really had a great story, and the true ending made me tear up (and I never thought a Pokémon Game would do that to me). I'm glad I played this game, atleast for the experience, but the information given to us in this game is also very important for the "normal" game. I must say that before playing this game, I didn't cara that much about Kenneth and Aelita, but now I'm so invested in their story, and Keta might be one of my favourite characters in the game. I think it's also fair to say, that I really disliked how Kenneth could never restore his relationship with Tesla. It's really a shame After this game, I felt like the creators were really cruel with Kenneth, he didn't deserve it =/ (well, don't take this to seriously, I don't mean that they're cruel, I'm just expressing how I feel about Kenneth's story and has a character). Btw, I didn't think that Mewtwo was that helpful in the game, he can only be used in the last battle of the game, and Kenneth's brother is a Dark Type used, so... Yeah, Mewtwo just did nothing in my playthrough. What are your opinions on this? I would really like to read them! And thank you for reading this GIANT post!
