Yes! I do plan on including plenty of school elements. Exams, quizzes, after school activities.

The battling part is part of the school agenda, too. It's intended to be part of PE and optional after school activity.

Thanks for checking it out. I plan on releasing one more demo in the near future wrapping up the "prologue" (day one) and showcasing new art and scenes.

The art looks lovely! I also love the satire in the alpha video, especially Blue's talent of "being a douche" hahaha Pokémon was like my childhood, so I'm super excited for this game owo Even though it isn't an option, I'll always and forever ship Red and Blue together <33 I'll definitely be stalking this thread *^*

While I have no intentions of including any yaoi elements, I'm okay with varying levels of bro-mance :P

Wow, this is so cool! Great concept and stunning art! I wish I could help but I am terrible at BGs!

All I can do is offer support, sorry!

I have to say I feel pretty blessed having a talented kid brother. He's just cranking these out like a madman!

Thanks! No worries. I'm in the talks with some BG artists so hopefully I'll figure something out sometime soon.

Love the art~ I tried the demo and I love the GUI. It's so nostalgic (the songs and the characters lol).

This is really exciting~ Shared it to all my friends who are fans of pokemon haha ^^

The battle system looks good too. :D

Thanks!

As a side note, while I will still continue to update this thread when I can, most of the immediate updates I make will be reflected in the PokéCommunity thread there.

It's simply more relevant for that community so I've put a little extra work posting updates there. I'll still be here, though.

So far since the last time I updated this thread it's mostly been code streamlining, a lot of new character art and tweaks, and, well, happy to say the prologue segment is 99% complete. An updated demo should be pushed out to cover that segment in its entirety after I make some more adjustments and some new art comes in.

Some new art (left to right: Flannery, Whitney, Sabrina, Skyla):

Ughhhh, backgrounds have been a real struggle, but they're finally coming together!

Updated art for the academy's main building:

Many more being updated. Some CGs are now in the works, too.

Wow this is brilliant! I just wish the romance options would include BxB because I don't usually like BxG and I would love to pursue Blue (Red and Blue would be my OTP lol), but nevermind that I'll play this game regardless of that.
I love Pokémon but I'm not an artist in any way, sadly, so if there's anything I can do to help that doesn't have anything to do with drawing (I can't draw to save my life lol) let me know, please.

This looks awesome! You've obviously put a lot of work into this so far, and it definitely shines.

I'm excited to try the demo ^^
