  • V13.5 Update | .Karma Files, Legends Arceus


    Jan
     Share

    It's been a little while since I've made a general update. Things have been updating very slowly it seems. Why?

    Well... The real reason is that I'm just taking it slow! After the main release of v13, I decided for my sanity I needed to take an extended hiatus or take things one at a time. I don't like sitting around doing nothing so the latter option sounded like the best option for me.

     

    That being said, even though I'm taking things slow, I have made good amount of progress in terms of set up!

    I know not everyone follows me on Twitter, but I do post interesting things there occasionally!

     

    Here are a collection of things I've worked on in the past few months:

    Small Q/A as per usual:

     

    Q1. Will the Pokemon in Legends Arceus be included?
    Yes! Will they be included in v13.5? That is unknown at this time. We haven't made a solid decision for those just yet, but we'll have an answer on this soon! P.S. Overqwill is my son, please do not be mean to him.

     

    Sneasler does not exist.

     

    Q2. Is the "Main" content in 13.5 optional?
    So, a lot of the sidequests have to do with the main characters and progressing their stories and personalities in less world ending ways.... I've decided to group them all together and a linear progressing mini story. Think of it like Where Love Lies. (Definitely shorter than that though, lmao) So... 13.5 turned into its own version I guess??? However, even if it's grouped together as a mini series, it will never be required to do. In future versions, players will have the option to input a password and automatically complete and receive all the rewards.

     

    Q3: If 13.5 is its own version with its own content, does the content have a title?

    Yes. It's named .Karma Files (Dot Karma Files)

     

    Q4: Do you have anything to show from .Karma Files?

    Yes! An evening of friends hanging out at the new GDC Night Market!

    Spoiler

    Q5: When Legends Pokemon are eventually added, how will you handle some of the evolution methods?

    So there isn't Strong and Agile style combat in Rejuv, obviously. Stantler's evolution condition is to use its signature move in a Strong style. Instead we'll probably turn them into "Level up + [Have this move learned].

     

    And... That's all! I really want to start updating more often, but I'm still taking my time~.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them below!

    So, if I have finished the main story of version 13, will I still be able to do all the sidequests of 13.5, at least until version 14? I heard this was the case want want to know if that's still true.

    Like will u play through the content spread throughout a bunch of chapters, or just do all quests after ch15 main story?

    How will you handle the hisui starter evolution? Like evolving them in the past (We still can enter the past sooo why not)

    And can we lock sneasler in the Kecleon Prison?

     

    Keep up the good work, Jan and devs!

    Sneasler does exist, Overqwill is indeed amazing, and I get the sinking feeling two items in particular that will not be named are going to be hell mining for...

    Will the whole gang get to hang out at the Night Market or is it just everyone pictured? Also, whos the one on the left, Aelita, Venam or Lavender? 

     

    New maps are looking amazing as always, and I love the new outfits!

    Here's an interesting question: you've confirmed to include Legends' mons, but any ideas on including the frostbite and drowsy status conditions? Frostbite at least seems much more fun than freeze.

    also i think its really funny how melia's wearing pigtails here like melanie.. she really saw an evil toddler alt timeline version of herself wearing pigtails and was like "yeah i could pull that off". good for her

    super excited to see hisuian zorua/zoroark and ursaluna in-game. one question though will the new forms have custom shinnies or will they have the same shinnies as thier main game counterpart? because either way i am super excited, because this time the shiny colors are actually good. one more thing since Ursaring's evolution requires a full moon to be active, will it be just changed to just leveling up at night?

    Me: OK. It's my favourite type. I love it. But i did too much monotype ground run. I shoud try different things.

    I was really hoping they'd learn a new move or something to allow them to evolve, but they dont. The answer for right now is no clue I haven thought that far ahead yet.

    IF

    the starter hisuian forms can be made into location based on how their typings are like maybe typhlosion in goldenleaf,decidueye in sherdian and samurott in may be in akuwa town.its just a suggestion though im not a developer so i dont know how things work

    This all looks great! I'm actually doing another - well, a partial playthrough. I was going to do the Rejuvenation story up to the end of Chapter 5, and then wait until this came out.

    So, Legends of Arceus is good, huh? Good to hear. I haven't played it myself yet - issues with the company I bought it from, that I hope are resolved soon...

    Thanks for the update Jan, I just wanna say make sure you don't exhaust yourself with the Legends mons, if it can't be done for 13.5 do what's best for the dev cycle and your sanity, especially because they won't be easy to implement in general. (burn dialog, palkia, lilligant, samurott, and typholosion new forms)

    Pretty cool!
    Legends of Arceus just kinda launched out of nowhere, huh?
    Well.. Not many mechanics in there can be implemented in the style of Rejuvenation other than the pokemons itself, the moves, abilities and maybe items.

    ...Assuming that the whole "falling off a cliff" in the first image isn't player-controlled and intended... We seriously get thrown off a cliff in a side-quest? I mean, I get that sidequests aren't always "chill" and "safe", but I forgot they could be that bad.

    why you dont make :
    dartrix hold a fighting gem + level 36 = hisuian decidueye
    quilava hold psychic gem +level 36

    dewott hold dark gem + level 36 

    dartrix can't learn any fighting type move so are quilava can't learn any psychic type move and dewott can't learn any dark move so having them holding those gem not a big deal

    Yeah but they are starters so we if they are available they have to be able to be available around the other starters

    Hisuian Arcanine, Hisuian Typhlosion, and Hisuian Samurott are the best pokemon in the game.

    You somehow made several mistakes in "Hisuian Zoroark" 3 times.

    An interesting idea. It'll take some more thought by my team. Also Typhlosion is part ghost, not psychic. 😅

    Too bad, if there's no point suggesting about evolving into their Hisuian forms with Arceus plates.

    Burnout is bad, sanity is good. This is probably the best Pokemon game I've ever played, I recommend it to absolutely everyone who likes Pokemon. Looking forward to the new content!! I can't wait to see where you take this, and how it will end. One thing I know for sure: we will all be saying: Damn that was good, once it's over. WooT
