    andracass

    this is your captain speaking.

    we are beginning our descent.

    please fasten your seatbelts and all that shit.

    stay tuned for this important safety presentation.

     

    Q: why is your safety presentation a Q&A?
    A: idk! i expect that there's a certain set of things that need to be explained and/or questions people have, so this is just a quick and to the point way of addressing them.

    just imagine that i'm rapidly switching between flight attendant and captain uniforms throughout this.

    some questions are also reminiscent of comments made on previous devblog posts.

    consider this an encouragement to not be like those people.

    Q: why don't you just release the game already

    A: because we're still adding stuff at the last minute!!!!

    i'm gonna be honest the most frustrating part about this being the final release is that we keep having all of these ideas and can't be like "well, we'll just push this off to the next version."
    there is no next version!!!!!!!!

    there's a strong possibility of a non-content related update coming sometime in the future, but let's be real reggy nintendo just has to look at us funny and that won't happen. so we want to make this as good as we can before release.

    but believe me we want this out just as fast as y'all do.

     

    Q: when's e19

    A: probably in may? idk! we've got to do the open beta (community release) first, and then we'll move on to the actual real final release of this video game.

     

    Q: when's e19 community release

    A: next weekend!

    we have a date in mind. i don't want to say which date it is in case something goes wrong on our end and things have to be pushed back. we're not a big game company with a corporate HQ and millions of dollars in funding. we're just two bitches and a cat in an apartment. sometimes we oversleep. you never know.

    just keep an eye on the sidebar.

     

    Q: how do i get the community release?

    A: be in the community! ie have a forum account.

     

    Q: i am only here for free shit and i don't want to do work. do i have to report any bugs?

    A: well, technically no! bug reports are definitely appreciated but are not mandatory.

     

    Q: i found a bug! should i dm every developer about it at the same time?

    A: no. 

    for real, if you do this, we hate you.

    please make a thread on the forum if you catch a bug! if you see a bug, assume that it needs to be reported.

     

    Q: you made the game too easy and i hate it now.

    A: that's not a question! it's also a pretty bold thing to say about something you haven't even played.

    if the game is now ruined for you then i don't think there was ever anything we could've done about that.

    we're sorry for your loss, though!

     

    Q: where should i start to make sure i don't run into problems?

    A: a pokemon center! or hardy's gym room. then head to calcenon.

    you won't miss it.


    Q: help i'm conflicted. i really want to see the new content right now, but i also want to see what's changed in early game.

    A: so i don't know if there's a perfect way to handle that. a common strategy of the playtesters has been to complete e19m and then start over. personally, i still think that starting from the beginning is the best idea: a lot of character interactions have been reworked and seeing them before getting to e19 will only make the new content that much stronger. the early game changes have been universally praised.

     

    Q: i'm the person from the last question. also i never want to see the magic square ever again, i'm tired of the starter quest, and i've caught every stupid pokemon in this stupid game. what do i do?

    A: oh man i have some good news for you! 

    one of those last minute things we're throwing in is some limited new game plus functionality. it'll let you skip some of those more time consuming quests.

    just load up a save that's already completed them and my hawt new code will take care of the rest.

     

    Q: hey there i have a suggestion for another new game plus thing do you want to he-

    A: no!

    like, listen, i'm sure you have a great idea.

    every idea ever posted in the comments has been a good idea.

    we just don't have time.

     

    Q: i want to replay the game but then i would have to see ace and they've bloated the cast and ruined the game.

    A: so that's a pretty bold thing to say about someone you've never met. if the game is now... well, you saw the answer earlier. 

    i'm pretty sure that every since person who's tested this game has liked ace. 

    and c'mon. an uncontroversial main antagonist? in this video game?

    that man's comment career is over.

     

    Q: can i activate passwords on my current save file?

    A: yes! someone in calcenon can help you with that.

     

    Q: i am SO excited about this like you have no idea. like srsly i am losing my mind. i have to tell everyone about my game.

    A: so this also isn't a question but i don't have a great way to segue into this.

    so discord has this hot new feature called "threads".

    threads have been great for playthrough liveblogging. for real. if everyone was just dumping their comments in one place, all of our channels would look like a hellfuck nightmare. it's also great for devs because we can just see how people's thoughts evolve as they progress through the game.

    this is me telling you to use a thread.

     

    Q: what if i'm in the middle of the game when i start e19?

    A: uhhhhhh that's a great question. we don't quite know.

    if you're in the middle of a game, you should probably start from the beginning. we don't know what kind of weird interactions will occur as a result of switches being missing, events being skipped, etc.

    just to be safe, you should probably start from the top.

    if you have a save file from an older version of the game, we'd expect that it'll be fine as long as things were fine during e18.

     

    Q: i downloaded the game and clicked the exe but it's not working! what do i do???

    A: okay, so, this is just a total shot in the dark.

    but you unzipped it, right?

     

    Q: how do i unzip?

    A: ...i am so concerned for your computer. i'm calling computer protective services.

    you are now banned to the outdoors. say hi to bambi.

     

    Q: hello. i am a hypothetical person from the future. i have a very loud take on this video game and/or one of its characters and i want to make a very loud post filled with hot takes about this. is this a good idea y/y?

    A: please give your takes a moment to cool down! hot takes are a fire hazard and the building code requires you to only have them in the comfort of your own home with people in the room with you.

    also i hit back.

     

    Q: OMG I CAN'T BELEIVE THAT AT THE END OF THE EPISODE SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE

    A: that's also not a question! what is wrong with you people

    also you definitely don't want to go around spilling story secrets like that. 

    spoiler locking for e19 is going to be a little weird since so much has changed.

    all content before the champion is going to be spoiler locked for a month after the final release.

    all content.

    this is going to really trip up returning players who are already familiar with the major story beats. there's two big reasons for this: the first is that the early game changes mean that people replaying through the game may not know what is/isn't new between episodes, so it's best to spoiler everything to be safe; second, there's a whole swath of people out there who have been waiting for this game to finish before playing it, and they've got a lot of shit to catch up on.

    for everyone's sake, we're treating all content as new content.

    postgame is going to be spoiler locked for three months- potentially less depending on how quickly people get through everything.

    this game is really fuckin long. y'all are gonna have shit to play for literal months. even if you played the game for 4 hours a day, every day, i'd still expect it to take about four weeks to beat.

    now i'm sure that people are going to no-life the shit out of it, but this ain't about them.

    we gotta give people a chance to play the whole thing.

     

    Q: is the website gonna crash on release day?

    A: well we're sure hoping it won't! got a hot new server upgrade and everything!

    but yeah, probably. we're sorry :(

     

    Q: wait, you wrote this post yesterday? how'd i miss it???

    A: i started it yesterday and posted it hidden to make sure nothing got lost. don't worry!

     

    now, i also polled the current testers for things they thought i should add. here's the highlights:
    "save often! like, really really save often."

    "pace yourself! e19m is still pretty long."

    "don't forget that you can turn speedup off."

    "there's a puzzle you might want a pen and paper for."

    "the game is still hard people jfc"*

    "the episode slaps and you're in for a ride."

    *this comment includes some editorializing from myself.

     

    hype train will arrive soon!

    So excuse me, just to see if I've understood properly

     

    The open-beta is actually going to be released in more or less a week and us Reborn fans will be able to play this game and just have to report bugs/etc? 

     

    It's so exciting I don't even want to think about it. I just know I won't play anything else for MONTHS

    poggers. Finally managed to finalize my plans of playing it with my friends, just in time apparently.

     

    Can't wait to suffer for hours over the course of literal monthes, in a terrible, miserable experience, waiting for each others while stuck in a gym because holy shit we're so bad at pokemon help

     

    One week. I've got to finish all my work this week just to be ready.

     

    Love you and the work you put on all that!

    From what I know, the first episode was released publicly on April 17 2012, so it's pretty cool that the community release is going to be on/around the day of the 10th anniversary!

    so I've been lurking here for like 6 months but since the game is almost complete now, I just wanted to thank you guys for putting so much hard work and dedication into a game that has unironically had a big impact on my life. this final week is going to be real painful and I can't express how excited I am to sit down and no-life this game in its entirety

    So with all the talk on main files mid-game being potentially scuffed if used in e19, I'm going to keep my entire e18 installation backed up so I can train up my preferred team there before I put the save in 19. I'm just after the GG on my main, so there's a bit of work left. I'd say, if you're nervous about potential mid-game scuff, install e19 separate from older versions, and back those older versions up. Also, find the location of your saves folder and back up your saves there. Chances are e19 may 'claim' saves, so to keep your saves for e18 until AFTER Hardy's gym.

    I'm no expert, this is just what I'm personally going to do. As much as I'd love to charge into late-e19 like everybody else, there's still 18 episodes to finish chewing through for some of us who just aren't confident.

    I'm excited! I just hope the passwords and things like Randomizer are available pre-Champ. And, knowing this game, we most likey ain't gettin' even one Legend pre-champ aside from what we already have, so I'm prepping my team fully in advance.

    So I have an Naganadel on my save were I got every pokemon available in the game would my pokedex record be included on the new game plus? Cuz I really want to replay the entire game but I know that I won't have sanity to fill the entire pokédex again.

    By the way thanks for all the work from every one that participated on this project even if I just started to keep up with Reborn in 2020 were I didn't had a good machine or console to play anything else it really helped me to pass through the quarentine and I really loved playing it.

    So Reborn is coming to an end(or a beginning for some), but the real question is what's next. Will there be another project fan made pokemon game? Initially, I assume the answer will be "HELL NO" but I'm probably not the only one thinking this and that includes the devs as well.

    Embarrassed to say I only just now realized upgrading my current save file to e19 is completely possible once the option is there. For some reason I had it in my head that my current file would be stuck in e18 mode and wouldn't be able to trade to a new file. D'oh.

    No worries! The hype has gotten to your brain and is making you more and more hype so things that might seem common sense really aren't

    In general we can't guaruntee savefiles will work in E19 unless they are brand new or have fully completed E18 on account of a lot of the ways things have changed - Unfortunately if you want to be sure things won't break your best choices are either to start anew, or keep playing your file up to the end of the current E18 release before you upgrade to E19

    Can I ask how new? Like could I prepare a save that hasn't left grand hall (gotten starter, did the fights, nothing else) and then when e19 is out start playing on that save.

    This is a really oddly specific question, but were the player sprites/VS portraits renamed or reformatted in any way? Or were new ones (like in Rejuv, where they have emotes and stuff) added entirely? I'm making a custom protag, and I'm worried that I'll have to go through the E19 graphics folder to see what to replace and potentially get spoiled that way lol

    seriously, i've been following reborn for coming on 10 years now. the passage of time is so weird, but i'm so excited to play the game's best and possibly final version.

    appreciate you guys and the monumental culmination of work this episode will represent! both from e19 in specific and from every update that's preceded it. team members have come and gone but every one of you deserves at least an internet high five for such an engaging, passionate fangame. <3

    this is him! this is the guy!

    it is, of course, not just this guy. in fact, not even all of what he quoted pertained to him. he is simply one small example of a certain flavor of person whose ego is the size of the moon and exists to make grumpy sounds in comment sections.

    we get a number of those from time to time. i have come to expect it.

    all i wanted here was to, perhaps, pre-empt future instances of such blowhardiness from occurring.

    but alas, it was not meant to be. much like how only you can prevent forest fires, only you can prevent hot takes.

    and this man is intent on burning the forest down.

    i weep.

    please do not be like this guy.

    i dread seeing this guy in my comment sections.

    i hope that everyone else likes ace so much that he melts in a pool of his own tears. (and then, ideally, returns as a more pleasant person.)

     

    (...though also, if i'm being honest, had ame not responded this would've gone entirely over my head. i was like "wait, you did?" and flipped through their history to see if this was something that i had heard about. didn't see anything and was like "huh, well, whatever, guy.")

    it's really funny that you come in here trying to posture over an admin and dev, but get her gender wrong in the same breath. it really demonstrates the extent to which you've put in any effort to understand the people you're complaining about.

    could you maybe consider applying 5% of your power to good faith, positivity or better community interactions instead of cynicism and humblebragging about dragging down a comment section yet again? or is that too much for you?

     

     

    It may be obvious, unnecessary, or already clear to the developers, but I'd like to point out that there are those around here who realize the volume of work there's been for this project, and with the little or not technical knowledge they have, can imagine how much effort has been put to the already released material as well as to the one incoming.
    Regardless of whether they have wishes for some features they are more than grateful, and most of all, the see the evident wish to create something enjoyable.
    Lastly they do remember what they enjoy for free something much (much) better than things they have paid for.
    So I'm just gonna leave this here.

    (P.S Also, Cass, I'm such a good guy, now cmon plz tell me where Lugia will be)

    As a dude undergoing chemo, reborn was a godsend because of its absurd length even in E18. Thank you for putting in the work to make it longer. Geez.

     

    One question: Are the scripted pokemon "events" in the early game changing at all? Or will they all be in their E18 locations.

    Well, Cass DID say something about releasing it around May, which gives us a month (give or take a few days), which also has been the average time for beta testers to find bugs and to the developers to fix them. So yeah, i think Pokémon Reborn - Complete Deluxe Ultra Version will be in our hands somewhere around May or even June.

    Long time lurker here. It's surreal knowing this game is finally going to have an end. I was first exposed to this game from shofu's initial playthrough of this game from centuries ago. I sort of grew up along with this game so it has a special place in my heart. Here's to a smooth release and some much needed rest for Ame and the gang!

    Seeing as everything in the game is going to be treated as new content, does this mean that everything that is currently on the forum such as guides, playthroughs, etc. is all going to be wiped, if not spoiler tagged?  If so, will we have time to save our stuff?  I personally have no qualms with starting from scratch, even if it is time consuming, but I still would like to try and "conclude" my older story I was writing before starting anew.

     

    Perhaps I will just complete the main story, like suggested, and then start over.  I will admit, making decisions like this is a lot harder than I thought...

    So, half a year ago you did that tournament with all the AI trainers. Will you publicly post a more detailed report of this tournament once the spoiler lock is over? I would definitely enjoy seeing something like that. 

    Seconded! I would love to see where all the bosses and trainers stack up compared to others in this after e19 has been released and we've all completed it.

     

    I can't believe this game is finally almost complete! I haven't always been following it super closely but I'm so glad I picked it back up last year. I don't know if I will ever be emotionally or mentally ready for these endgame bosses but damn if I'm not excited.

    I love you. All of you.

     

    Since I cannot sleep for the following nights, I'm imagining what my "perfect run" will look like. And I have a small question that might change how much pre-postgame farming I will do:

     

    Assuming there is a hyper training equivalent in postgame, will the increased IVs be taken in account when breeding Pokémon?

     

     

    Oh also would the New Game+ allow us to keep relationship points between runs, more specifically to get all ending by playing several times?

    Man, I'd love to play the community release, but I also wanna play the game in its fully released glory, and I know I won't be replaying it yet again once I'm finally done.

    Guess I'll just wait until that somewhere in May date.

    Not gonna lie, I’m nervous about the idea of Nintendo shutting this down before the beta and official release.

     

    I hope that doesn’t happen

    Question, that's prob dumb but idk, is the community release available to everyone or select few people? If so what's the difference between that and the final release? Thanks.

    From what I understand,  the community release is sort of an unfinished build. 

     

    I think it has the final episode +Post-game, but the final release will have some extra goodies the devs want to include.

    Can barely contain my hype for this, the game I've played all over high school and after is finally coming to fruition :)

    As I've read the community release will miss some stuff that's going to be in the final release. Is that all postgame stuff?

    As in, if I start a new save on the community patch will I have missed anything by the time the full release comes out?

    I don't think the full patch will really change content from the community release, but I think it'll mostly be bugfixes. That's my interpretation of it at least. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hi there. I hope you all are doing well. I have been a big fan fan of pokemon reborn since I stumbled onto it from episode 12. Can't believe that the final episode is near the horizon. Kudos to all the people involved in making such an amazing experience for all of us. 

     

    Quick qs for the devs - when online functionality comes back, will online double battles be included? As much as I love the online single battle functionality of reborn, double battles are more chaotic and awesome. I hope double battles wont be too much of an issue to be implemented.

     

    Thanks again for making this masterpiece of a game!!!

    Sorry if this has been answered, but will community release games be saved? Or will we have to restart upon official release?

     

    Hello everyone. I started playing Reborn two weeks ago, and I'm so happy to see this update. 

    I have the same concern like the quote message, will I have problems with my actual save if I play the community release? Or it's better to wait until the final release?

     

    Thanks!

    I'm not entirely sure if i understood the question, but from what i know about the community release and e19, your save should be safe if you are either really early in the game, or at the end of e18. I recall someone (probably andracass) saying that mid-game saves may not work due to missing certain events or interactions. If you havent gone too far, i would wait until e19, or just play until the end, then update to e19 at the end

    It's happening. Now where is my Reborn sav file I've completed up to EP. 18.

    *checks all thumbdrives and found out I deleted them while clearing out stuff by accident to save space in my computer.  Same with Rejuvenation savs.

     

    DAmnit. Well, I've retired from the community anyway a long time ago. Ya'll have fun.

    Question for the developers:

     

    Does anyone on the dev team plan on committing time to helping the Rejuvenation team once e19 is finally polished?

    yup! a number of devs, myself included, currently work on both games.

    I hope there’s a way to get an Ice Stone too outside of the Dept. Store for my Alolan Vulpix. Weather won’t cooperate for me to get the stickers I need.

    You really should start over with the community release. 2 gyms in is probably not worth it to continue and miss the changes

    Quick point for those who want to share or stream this game before the big boy final release (just find and replace fan game devs with fan game enjoyers):


    It's shut the fuck up Friday, release won't be far off from the community drop. We're so close to having this game, I urge everybody to keep this game under their hat until it's out for good, it's too late for it to be nuked, and can be archived among the cosmos of the internet.

     

    Cannot wait for release, e19 looks kickass.

     

    Until then, I shall be shutting the fuck up, and so should you.

    this modpack has a thing that allows you to control weather conditions, along with many other conveniences, it should work for now, but it may not work for e19. I'm sure many of them will be re-updated for the new version.

    Hello, first I want to congratulate you for your work on this game. I'm a Spanish-speaking fan and I've been waiting almost a year for the game to be translated into Spanish; being direct, I just installed the game in its version translated into Spanish, but when accessing the Pokegear the online version is disabled; I would like to know if it is a problem due to the e19 update and if so, when e19 comes out, can it be played online in the Spanish version? I appreciate your time.

     

     

     

    Hola, primeramente quiero felicitarlos por su trabajo en este juego. Soy un fan hispanohablante y llevo casi un año esperando a que el juego sea traducido al Español; siendo directo, acabo de instalar el juego en su version traducida al español, pero al acceder al Pokegear la version online esta deshabilitada; me gustaria saber si es un problema debido a la actualizacion del e19 y de ser asi, al momento de lanzarse el e19 ¿podra jugarse online en la version al español?

    As stated in the sidebar, "Online play will be temporarily disabled in the near future while we update the version and workshop some components of it. Thanks for understanding." So it's not a mod thing, it's a game server thing. It should be able to be played in the final, version, but I'm not sure if you'll be able to have online functionality in E18 or you'll have to wait until whenever a spanish mod of E19 gets released.

     

    o sea, no sé si se podrá jugar el e18 online cuando sea lanzado el e19, pero para jugar el e19 en español online habrá que esperar a que sea traducido por quienes hicieron la traducción del e18.

    One of the focuses of our testing time has been to implement enough QoL features that you don't necessarily have to to turn to debug in order to not suffer through grinding EVs and such, so I hope you'll give some of those new features a try before jumping straight there... But if you must use debug... You're accepting the responsibility that we don't find out about it. It is very possible to create gamebreaks and such with it so be responsible, keep it to yourself, and verify any reports you would post still happen on a non-debug copy.

     

     

    not sure I follow. tbf it's 3:30 and I just finished rejuvenation and a teensy bit of wine

     

    I'd use the debug mode to give myself masterballs and change the EVs and IVs of my pokemon, maybe cheat in some max revives and such. I'd let you guys know I had debug mode on, obviously, but still. unless the debug mode is bugged or weird, I don't use RPG maker...... yet.

     

    also, on a less related topic, how would my bug reports etc. be taken if I have excessively vulgar names? as in slurs. as in I tend to name pretty pink and good pokemon f-word (used for homosexual men) because that's just how I am. I'd also use the n-word if I felt it fitting for a pokemon. Various references to genitalia and bodily functions. would I need to censor it for bug reports, or should I just not send any?

    You know, ep19's community release is basically ep19's release, but just for community, but anyone can still make an account at any time easily, right? So, technically, it is still a public release, you just have take the time make an account, which only takes like 5 minutes tops.

    because that's just how I am? I don't have this "slurs=hate" thing going on; I refer to people with slurs when I feel friendly towards them. Likewise, when I like a given pokémon, my heart wants to name them appropriately. It actually takes a degree of effort on my part to not use foul language or slurs.

    Heck, look at the OP, where she said "we're just two bitches" or something of the sort.

     

    Don't get me wrong, most of my pokémon aren't named as slurs. But certain pokémon are always named as slurs, and that's just what my subconscious has decided. (some pokémon, like tentacool/tentacruel are always named Hentai, for example. that's just been decided, and that's just how it is)
