  3. A game by @Michael_ and @Ekat Introduction: Pokémon Ashen Frost, formerly Pokémon Present, revolves around Sylvester, a kind, albeit surly, officer-turned-detective in Riverview City. Sylvester works alongside his not-quite-canine unit, Swinub, to solve minor cases. Tracking down missing cheques and ice sculpture vandals doesn't come without risks, however; the frigid metropolis is home to ordinary people and criminals alike. To uncover the truth, Sylvester steps on the toes of some of the city's most important figureheads... as well as the mafia's. Features: A story-driven plot consisting of 19 cases, involving searching for clues, presenting evidence and solving mysteries A fully fledged case system, complete with its own UI and features Pokémon from Gen 1-8 available A continuously expanding city to explore, complete with a ton of side content Reborn AI and custom weather to keep players on their toes An optimization area to allow any party member to become battle-ready in no time! An overworld encounter system, with areas involving wild grass being very far and few between A unique battle tower system, complete with random teams akin to the battle factory as well as its own field effect Fully functional and running on MKXP, yielding improved performance and modular screensizes Screenshots: Download: Following Progress: Progress can be followed in a number of places. Some notable options include joining our Discord Server and following our Twitter. If you've read through this far, thanks for checking out the game! Hopefully you'll hear back from us soon with the next release! Cheers! Credits:

  5. Hiya everyone! I thought this might be a nice place to leave some Reborn fanart :) What I would imagine a cover art of Reborn to look like : Ame Saves The Protagonist (Train Opening) Ame & Alolan Ninetales I am also on DeviantArt and Instagram :)
  6. So besides Pokemon Reborn, I've kind of fallen out of wanting to do playthroughs (for now) of other Pokemon Fanmade Games. But I've kind of been itching to do a couple of Pokemon Reborn mono run challenges & uploading those on my uploading days. Although... that feels weird because I haven't uploaded the James Only Run yet. Haha. The dude that's making the intro music though has other people ahead of me so I understand that. But yea. I would expect that to happen this upcoming week. BUT! I want some help from you guys. Idc what mono type run I do 1st. So I'm gonna let you all pick for me. The most voted gets done 1st. Let's see which 1 you guys want to see 1st!
  7. Hey everyone! It's been a few months since the official release of Pokemon Reborn and I bet that most of us have probably finished the main game and even postgame by now. I wanted to do a fun post as in Reborn we had access to every Pokemon from Generation 1-7. My question to you is this: What is your Champion/Elite 4 Team. (If you wanna include Gen 8 you can, but I didn't since I was focusing on mons in Reborn.) I don't mean the team you used to beat the game or postgame, but the team you would use if you were literally Champion of a region, any region (not just Reborn). On another note, if you weren't Champion, what Elite 4 team would you have and what Type/types would you use for challengers? There are a few limitations to this choice. For the Champion team, you can list one Legendary/Mythical Pokemon to use if you want, but no more than one. For Elite 4, you are not allowed to use any Legendaries or Mythical Pokemon, so choose wisely! My Champion team would be these guys on either a Starlight Arena or Holy Field. Garchomp Togekiss Silvally (Holding a Dark Memory) Serperior (With Contrary) Delphox Empoleon (My Ace) Yes its a weird team for Starlight Arena or Holy Field but for the moveset for most of my team, many of their moves would be boosted on Starlight while Garchomp is Garchomp and would just kick the crap out of you. On Holy Field, not only is Garchomp boosted but Togekiss is a BEAST on this field with Dazzling Gleam and Timid Nature as well as Delphox's Psychic and Serperior with Contrary/Leaf Storm and Dragon Pulse. Silvally automatically becomes Dark type on the field so instead of a Memory, I can give him a better item to use for his attacks. Strangely, Empoleon would be my ace purely because Empoleon is my favorite Pokemon of all time and Water/Steel is such an underrated type combined with the sheer bulk and power Empoleon has if used correctly. For the Elite 4, I'd use Dark type Pokemon since Dark is my favorite Type even though my Champion team doesn't consist of any. My Elite 4 team would be these guys on a New World field. Zoroark (Disguised as Drapion) Greninja Incineroar Drapion Tyranitar (Mega) Hydreigon Kinda feel like Luna with the Dark types, but Dark is my favorite type. Just how they are so menacing and cool looking though a lot of Pokemon are cool. Hydreigon is my favorite Dark type of all time and while it didn't make the cut for my Champion team, it would be my ace for this team. (I feel like Lin now, lol). I can't wait to see everyone's answers!
  8. Pokémon Reborn - Looping Battle Music Mod Being the bored person that I am, after having played through the main portion of episode 19 and some of the post-game, I have decided to update my looping battle music mod for episode 19! About This mod, as the name implies, makes the battle music in Pokémon Reborn loop - and not in the same way it already does, starting from the start of the file, no, it makes it loop based on a set looping point. This essentially means that you should no longer notice the point at which the music reaches its end, however, due to some of the music used in Reborn not having a clear point where it is supposed to loop, transistions might still not be 100% smooth on all battle music but I tried my best to make it as seamless as possible. Because of there no longer being any need for the music looping within the audio file, the combined file size of these files went down from ~120MB to ~80MB. This reduction could be even higher but I decided to keep additional loops on music files that have slight differences on their second or third loop whenever possible. Since Reborn's engine already supports looping audio natively and all audio files are in the .ogg format now, this mod only contains audio files to replace the old ones. Installation In order to install the mod, you need to download and extract the .zip file into your Pokémon Reborn folder. Your computer should then ask if you want to replace files of the same name. Click on yes (for all) and the installation is done! Compatibility & Bugs This mod should be compatible with any other mods that do not change the audio files or substantially alter how the game's audio engine works (which should be no other mods!). Regarding bugs, well, it is just music files so there should not be any. Download

  10. Trailer INTRODUCTION: Pokémon Violet Crystal is the sequel to Pokémon Violet Version, both projects born from the idea of dedicating a series of games to the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo. Everyone knows Mewtwo as a Pokémon created by humans through a genetic mutation of Mew's DNA, but in Pokémon Violet Version and Violet Crystal the reality is different: Mew has never been cloned, therefore Mewtwo does not exist, however there is still a presence of a Mewtwo that apparently came from another universe via dimensional portals. Furthermore, this Mewtwo does not seem to be very friendly and is endowed with special powers, therefore it poses a threat to both Pokémon and people. STORY: MAIN CHARACTERS: IMPROVEMENTS FROM VIOLET VERSION: - Tilesets and OW Sprites from HGSS - EBDX - Bigger maps - More use of HM - The Pokémon Center and the Market are in one structure - Poké Gear - Loop .ogg audio files - More Pokémon - New encounters methods - Balls from Apricorns Feedback and info: pokemonviolafeedback@gmail.com YouTube channel Instagram Release date: TBD UPDATE (9/9/22) SCREENSHOTS AND VIDEOS: Pokémon Violet Version Download CREDITS:
  11. Good Morning everyone! Finished episode 18 for a long while now and i have had alot of time on my hands, so i decided to build a team that utilizes the Rainbow Field effect to its fullest potential (or at least what i believe to be) So im gonna post my current team here, their sets and the reasons why they are on the team and i want your honest opinions and feedback. Note: This is the best iteration of the team ive come up with after many days of testing in ep 17 sandbox mode, then breeding and ev training in episode 18 once i got the team that i felt was the best iteration. The Tank (Level 94) Aggron @Aggronite Ability: Sturdy (Filter after Mega) Nature: Careful IVs: Maxed EVs: 252 HP 252 Sp.Def 4 Atk Moves: Bulldoze, Heavy Slam, Ice Punch, Rock Slide This guy is the great wall of f****** china. Along with the support from rainbow empowered Wish (via Clefable) This thing does not die and hits like a bus. Very good for switching into poison types to protect the fairies on the team as well as tank Rock type attacks. Bulldoze is amazing coverage as well as utility for making enemy mons slower, giving my other mons the speed advantage. Ohm (Level 94) Electivire @Electrium Z Ability: Motor Drive Nature: Jolly IVs: Maxed EVs: 252 Atk 252 Spe 4 HP Moves: Wild Charge, Bulldoze, Ice Punch, Meditate This is the premier (yet unexpected) sweeper of my rainbow field team. This guy protects everyone on my team who is weak to electric type moves (and there are alot of them) while gaining a +1 boost in speed thanks to Motor Drive. Rainbow boosted Meditate makes abso-freaking-lutely no sense AT ALL, giving a +3 boost to Electivire's attack and turning him into a walking nuke. After that boost, there is nothing that this guy cannot kill in one hit and that shocked me during testing (excuse the lame pun) Gloxinia (Level 94) Togekiss @Choice Scarf Ability: Serene Grace Nature: Timid IVs: Maxed EVs: 252 SpAtk 252 Spe 4 HP Moves: Fly, Air Slash, Dazzling Gleam, Aura Sphere The rainbow field effect doubles the chances of added effects, and Togekiss' ability increases the chances of additional effects on top of that. Simply put: Air Slash = perma-flinch. As long as Togekiss is faster, then no questions asked. The enemy Pokemon WILL flinch. Aura Sphere gets boosted but the rainbow as well, so there are coverage options outside of perma-flinching. Astra (Level 94) Clefable @Magical Seed Ability: Magic Guard Nature: Bold IVs: Maxed EVs: 252 HP 252 Def 4 SpAtk Moves: Wish, Moonblast, Cosmic Power, Protect In the rainbow field, magic seed increases your SPAtk by one stage and gives you healing wish. In addition, one rainbow boosted cosmic power makes Clefable as tanky as (or even tankier than) Mega Aggron. The rainbow field also increases the healing effect of Wish to a ridiculous 75% of Max HP, combined with protect, this makes it a more effective healing method than Softboiled, since it can also heal other party members on switch-in. Moonblast gets a boost from the rainbow field as well, so in combination with the magical seed boost, Clefable can dish out ridiculous amounts of damage while receiving very little in return. Kitsune (Level 94) Ninetales @Heat Rock Ability: Drought Nature: Timid IVs: Maxed EVs: 252 SpAtk 252 Spe 4 HP Moves: Flamethrower, Solarbeam, Hypnosis, Will-o-Wisp The first part to creating the rainbow field effect. Ninetales is a great support for the rest of the team in form of Hypnosis and Will-O-Wisp. Because the rainbow field is a terrain, it means that sun and rain weather effects persist even after the field is created and can be refresh permanently as long as rain or sun is present on the field. This makes Ninetales a great offensive threat when sun is active because of a boosted Flamethrower and a first turn Solarbeam. Tefnut (Level 94) Pelipper @Damp Rock Ability: Drizzle Nature: Bold IVs: Maxed EVs: 252 HP 252 Def 4 Spe Moves: Tailwind, Surf, Icy Wind, Hurricane The final part to creating the rainbow field effect. Pelipper has great bulk and has fantastic supporting options with Tailwind and Icy Wind. For the same reasons as Ninetales, the weather effect it brings gives it offensive options in a rain boosted Surf and a 100% accurate STAB Hurricane, which gets its chance of confusion doubled in the rainbow field. Im seriously considering swapping someone out for a Primarina because of the combination of a rainbow AND rain boosted Sparkling Aria, as well as rainbow boosted Moonblast with Primarina's massive base 126 SpAtk stat...Heres the set im thinking of Primarina @Magical Seed Ability: Torrent Nature: Modest IVs: Maxed EVs: 252 SPAtk 252 Spe 4 HP Moves: Sparkling Aria, Moonblast, Icy Wind, Perish Song Tell me what you guys think and give me some feedback about changes in members, movesets etc. Have a great day
  12. The game series takes place in a universe that combines two frachises: Pokémon and Super Sentai. Story The story goes that two universes that shouldn't be allowed to meet (Pokémon and Super Sentai) unite mysteriously in the Dual-Series Combination, a mysterious phenomenon caused by the Avataro Sentai Donbrothers that combines the franchises of their choice. These Super Sentai has since become Pokémon Trainers and/or Gym Leaders. The enemies each Super Sentai face also has Pokémon to use for their attempts to take over the world. Luckily one Trainer (the players) is the only child of one of the 45 Super Sentai leaders, who was going on a quest to become the "Super Sentai Pokémon Master Extraordinaire", a title held by the Donbrothers.
  13. THERE WILL BE TWO VERSIONS OF THIS GAME! ONE WILL BE A DARKER STORY, WHILE THE OTHER BEING IN A MORE TRADITIONAL STORY! This game was made possible by RPG Maker XP and Pokemon Essentials v19.1 Trailer Watch Here! Pokémon Tabula Rasa, inspired by Reborn and Insurgence, is a story driven fangame with 2 brand new regions! - The Anphelio Region, inspired by the word aphelion (or the point in the orbit of a planet, asteroid, or comet at which it is furthest from the sun). This region has a lot of similarities with its name, as it is a snow-covered tundra with little to no civilization. Mostly covered by routes and forests, this region gives you a lot of training and time to meet new faces who help to get you back to your once held glory. Many Pokémon from all over the world have descended from this region and here, you can find many of their different, undiscovered versions of themselves. These Pokémon are often shy and haven't come in contact with many humans. However, the ones that find civilization or Human population, get along with them very well. - The Pansperma Region is the mainland. The region flooded with tourists and an influx in population. This has really driven out Pokémon in these parts, especially near cities. As you go on throughout the region, you find power-hungry corporations out for control over the region. To do this, however, they need the most powerful trainers to be able to drive out all Pokémon insight. In which doing so, makes room for more people to come in, leading to more money and power in the corporations. Here, you will find out who you truly were in the past and you may have to power your way through to get what you want for yourself and the Pokémon at stake. The sheer variety in Pokémon, people, and places you find along the way is incredible. This region has everything a person could ask for and is the reason why it's a huge tourist attraction. Story Before the events of Tabula Rasa, the main protagonist and their rival travel to a distant region while their home region's Pokemon League is being developed. When they discover that this new region doesn't have a current champion, the protagonist and the rival decide to battle each other for the crown. During the battle, the protagonist is finally "beaten" via an intentional hit which causes them to go into a severe coma. Years later, the protagonist wakes up from their coma and realizes that they've been taken in by Professor Oleaster and his apprentice, your rival. After some encouragement, the rival gets the protagonist to become a trainer once again to travel across the brand new Pokemon League in their home region that spans across both Anphelio and Pansperma The Protagonists Story of the Two Regions Along the way you meet a strange professor who tells you he has seen you around before and knows your story. He brings you in and tells you that he knew the man who tried to save you from the (evil agency) and knows how to get your Pokémon back, your items however, are unobtainable. He plays as your guide and tells you the newest information on where your belongings are being held, along with the evil team's location. People throughout both regions will recognize you, but you will have no recollection on who they are or even who you are. The natives of both regions understand your godlike stature and will do anything to help you take back their region. This includes giving you tips, pointers, and even their own belongings. However, the Pansperma region's big cities are heavily guarded, so watch your step. The Meaning Behind/Why I chose Tabula Rasa Tabula rasa, the latin word meaning a "clean slate" or "scraped tablet." The bigger picture/driving narrative in this game being starting over from scratch, or Tabula Rasa. I really wanted to make a game where you were previously the champion, where you have to go through the region have once did, with no recollection of anything the regions have to offer. I'm already planning to make a sequel and prequel to these games, which already have titles. Those being Pokémon Prevenire and Pokémon Exigo. Prevenire meaning before hand/To come to and Exigo meaning complete or finished. Pokémon Prevenire will be in the style of FRLG/RSE and Pokémon Exigo will be in the style of Gen 5. However, if I am going to make that happen, I will need a team to do so, which is why I will also be putting a similar thread in the Team Recruitment channel. So if you are interested in making music, sound designs, scripting, or sprites, comment here/on the team recruitment page and/or message me directly. Screenshot Showcase Plans for the game - Fully custom music/Battle intros - Custom characters with backstories - Full fledged character customization system - New mega evolutions - Custom Anphelion and Panspermanian forms for over 200+ Pokémon! - All new, remade shinies for existing Pokémon - New Pokémon that you discover throughout your journey (Not a final decision) - HMs as Items (Axe for Cut, exc.) Current Features - 12 gyms (4 in Anphelio, 8 in Pansperma) - Brand new stealth elements - Choices effect story - Every Pokémon Generation 1-8 (IoA and Crown Tundra) - New Mega Evolutions - Past characters coming back! ex. Wes, Red, Blue, Gary - Hidden Grottos - Customizable Secret bases - High Leveled Overworld Encounters - Seasons/Seasonal events - All new UI - Fast forward (Thanks to Marin) - Huge post game - Side quests galore! Credits list Notes This is a huge game idea I want to pursue and will probably need quite a team to pull it off. The game's full version won't be available to play in the near future, but we will get it done! We currently have a team of 5 and still growing! I have had this idea in mind for a while now, and I am finally able to accomplish it. Any support for my huge project will be greatly appreciated! We currently have a roadmap made and we are working our hardest to have a fully fledged demo out by the end of this month! The demo will have frequent updates with new features, quests, maps, and bug fixes. We are also still recruiting! What I would be looking for is anything ranging from spriters/concept artists to music makers! If you are interested in joining the team, please send me a DM over discord, twitter, and even DMing on this forum! You can also contact the team by emailing pokemontabularasa@gmail.com.

  17. Hey there! I'm here to show off a small project I call Pokemon Arena. Please forgive the very low quality GIFs. The game looks better in a regular format! Overview Pokemon Arena should be viewed as an enclosed simulator of what a real-time action RPG version of Pokemon might look like. I wouldn’t consider it to be a fighting game even though some might. It does share some similarities, but to treat it strictly like a fighting game would do it a disservice I think and would likely lead to confusion in general. Design Philosophy The idea here was to try to turn a turn-based game that relied on careful methodical strategy and some randomness into a pure skill-based game. Each move has set values that include damage, hit velocities, status effect data, and a ton of other values. Additionally, any randomness that exists in traditional Pokemon is replaced completely with something fitting to this type of game. Sometimes I also equip moves to Pokemon that are "impossible". I'm not too interested in being perfectly accurate here. Sometimes an illegal option is more interesting than a legal one. I'm doing this project purely for fun to take a break from another project I have been on for 5+ years. Fun is the number one priority here and I view this game as an experiment to see how successful a re-genred (not a real word ¯\_( ͠° ͟ʖ °͠ )_/¯ ) version of Pokemon could play. Balance isn't much of a concern here either. I will occasionally make changes to things that are grossly over powered, but there is so much counter play in this game that trying to balance something perfectly would be not only virtually impossible, but would also be considerably less fun to develop and play. Concept I would consider this game to be a battle simulator of sorts; something that gives an example of the types of fights you'd encounter at the mid-game level in a full game centered around this sort of combat. Trainer fights would play out just like fights in this simulator would while exploration of the world would function about the same. This concept assumes that you, as the player, already know a lot about how Pokemon battles work and what each move does. There are, of course, ways to refresh your memory on this, but it still assumes you have at least a casual sense of the game already. I make no effort to teach the ins and outs of Pokemon in this game as I do not have the time to do so. Controls Here’s the controller layout. Some of these functions may be confusing, but I’ll go into more detail as the post continues: Moves All moves are on a set cool-down that can only be performed at preset intervals. Generally speaking, all moves can be cancelled into and out of each other as long as another move is available. You'll also notice that each move has its own warning system built in. A red warning indicates a normal attack and a yellow one indicates a move that cannot be interrupted. The latter are rare. Also a standard hit will be indicated by a circle or a box that gives you the area in which the attack will have its effect. A move that is indicated with an exclamation point indicates a projectile and a move with no warning whatsoever indicates that it is a non-hitting status move. Finally, almost all moves have some level of automatic tracking. This effect can be overidden by holding the "Macro" button to manually aim a move. Combinations As mentioned, everything can cancel into everything. This is the core of the game. Learning to use your moves optimally is key to this game. There are some limitations, but generally speaking this rule applies all around. This allows you to perform combos for more damage or to set up something unique. It should be noted that there are systems in place to prevent infinite combos. One prevents hard stuns from happening more than once per combo. Additionally, when juggling, each concurrent hit will cause the target to fall faster. Eventually they will fall so fast that further moves cannot connect. Finally there is a OTG (off the ground) decay. Each time the target hits the ground, the window to hit the target closes until they become fully invincible. Of course, move cool downs can help mitigate larger combos, but careful timing and planning can get around some of these limitations: Status Effects For example, no move will randomly miss and status effects are guaranteed as long as you can land the move. Moves like “Toxic” or “Will-O-Wisp” fall into this category. Other moves like “Poison Jab” don’t instantly poison, but slowly build up a “Poison” value. Once that value hits a certain threshold, Poison is inflicted. Additionally, while status effects have a minimum amount to fully activate, they have an "over fill" amount that allows you to extend a status effect beyond its normal limit. A flashing bar indicates when a status is over filled. Finally, you can continue to fill a status effect simply by landing an attack that builds a status. As usual, only one status effect can be active at once. Currently, only some status effects are fully implemented. Side note, no electric types cannot be paralyzed in Pokemon Arena. The following GIFs are just for demonstration purposes. Z Moves / Mega Evolution Treat these moves like you would a super or ultimate move in a fighting game. Do damage to build a super meter up and activate! In the highly rare event that a Pokemon is equipped with a Mega Evolution, they will also have a separate Z Move they can perform after transforming. These moves have very high damage or a very unique utility. They are also somewhat hard to attain. It requires you to stay in for quite a while generally. Abilities For the most part, these function just as they do in the traditional games, but with no randomness. I also tend to take some liberties with these. You might see a Pokemon with an “impossible” ability if their normal ones don’t make sense in this format. Switching Similar to moves, you can switch at any point as long as you have the ability to do so. Swapping is on a rather long cool down, though, so don’t expect to do it often. Stat changes Similar to the traditional game play, your stats can change in battle. They have been condensed, however, into 3 stats : power, defense, and speed. Game play rules have been adjusted to conform to this condensed format. Elemental effectiveness This works identically to traditional game play. Not much here has changed. When landing an attack, the color of the damage text will denote its effectiveness. Green is super effective, grey is normal, red is not very effective. For now, ineffective moves do not connect in any way. This might change later on. Basic Gameplay Up to 4 players can play simultaneously. Right now, only free-for-all is supported, but I plan to add at least a 2v2 mode as well. Each player selects up to 6 Pokemon. On top of that, each Pokemon (currently) has 4 preset move sets. Each move set is unique in its own regard, but generally follows a specific archetype. Let’s go over each here: In case you are unfamiliar with how a move or ability works, you can press a simple combination of buttons to get more in-depth info. As you can see, each Pokemon has 4 moves, an ability, and a Z-move OR a mega evolution. Each Pokemon also has access to two mobility options. Weather Weather works similarly to how it does in traditional Pokemon. Weather wars can also work the same as only one effect can be active at once. Randomized turn counts are removed in favor of set timed amounts. Also, in some cases, effects are simplified to conform to the game's style. Currently I have these weather effects functioning: Pokemon choices Listen, I’ve been playing Pokemon since Gen 1. I was roughly 11 at the time. Since then, I have rarely found legendaries all that interesting (Mewtwo and Suicune are pretty much it). This generally is true for final evolutions as well. What this means is you likely wont see a ton of "popular" Pokemon in this. I'm pretty much adding Pokemon that I personally find interesting. Having said all that, if I decide to take this further than I already have, I may do some kind of poll every now and then. Here’s who I have planned. This is subject to change, but for now, it’s who I like: Release Not 100% sure when I’ll have this ready to release, but I’m aiming to put it out soon (hopefully within a week or so). It wont have any online functionality any time soon though. I recommend using Parsec to play with friends online. It’s free and it’s amazing. Engine Info Pokemon Arena was built from the ground up in Unity3D. I used an action RPG / fighting game engine that I have been developing for the past 6 years. I call the engine "Park Engine" for short since it was largely developed for another unrelated project (more on this later). I built the engine from scratch. This includes too much to list, but the basics of it are hit detection, effect and sound spawning, character creation, any many MANY more features. On top of all this, I have created a toolset that allows me to create a character and a ton of other features with no programming. Occasionally I have to add a new feature with some light programming, but this is rare. Park Engine also has a lot of functions that allow NPCs and other RPG related functions to be created, but those are unused in Pokemon Arena. Here's a few shots of the toolkit I have built for this engine. Inspirations This is a tricky one. Obviously Pokemon is a big one here, but Tera Online is likely the biggest. Before they changed the PvP servers to what they are now, I had a great deal of fun "challenging" other players at inopportune moments. Low level PvP was always my favorite. I never really enjoyed it in the post game. Back when I used to play Tera Online, I wanted to make a game like that, but somewhat simplified and more focused on skill-based combat. This is the direction I took it. I also draw a lot of inspiration from Dark Souls and Kingdom Hearts; though the connections to those are probably more subtle than I think they are. Credits As of right now I am the sole developer.

  18. Hey, guys. I am planning to start over on a new save for E19 in the future, and had a question for anybody who has played through the game (or at least partly through the game. For my next run of Pokemon Reborn, I wanted to run a sort of canonical team throughout the entirety of the game, therefore challenging myself and limiting myself to around 6 pokemon for the whole playthrough. I think it might be fun to theorycraft which pokemon would be on canonical team for the protagonist. Now, getting to the question part of this thread: Which 6 pokemon would the protagonist theoretically use if they were limited to ONLY pokemon they got from the main story of the game. Meaning pokemon ONLY collected through main events. So, that is, excluding all sidequest/ side event pokemon. If anyone who comes across this who has played any of E19 and could contribute to a list of main story only pokemon, that would be sweet! Thanks to all in advance. I have played all the way up to E18, but lets try to keep it as spoiler-free and broad as possible (not detailing specific happenings or occurrences in full or anything like that).
