[QUOTE]Members of 4chan's /vp/ board are teaming up to make their own Pokémon game. Because how often do you get a Pocket Monster trainer named "Doucherado"? Not often enough![/QUOTE] [url]http://kotaku.com/5990073/4chan-is-making-its-own-pokmon-game-looks-pretty-good-so-far[/url]
it took kotaku a while to find out
yeah no
Eugh, those fakemon look atrocious, like 80% of the CAP project creations in Smogon. Why is it so hard for people to make fakemons that actually resemble something Sugimori or Oomura would've designed?

[QUOTE=lifehole;39885994]because they aren't Sugimori or Oomura[/QUOTE] Making fakemon look good is not impossible, there are some very good examples: [t]http://cap.smogon.com/web/art/gallery/past/cap10/03-cartoons-cap10.jpg[/t][t]http://cap.smogon.com/web/art/gallery/past/cap14/01-mosquitoxe-HeSKk.jpg[/t][t]http://cap.smogon.com/web/art/gallery/past/cap10/01-aragornbird-shrimp.jpg[/t][t]http://i776.photobucket.com/albums/yy42/herokeikurono/Fakemons/Lectrodon_by_BlueGhosty.jpg[/t][t]http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/143/e/4/larva_fakemon_by_sirwallacetheariados-d50w93k.jpg[/t][t]http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/4250/94726574.jpg[/t] If it wasn't for the fact these are fan creations I honestly would believe they're actual pokemon. What those people do is basically throwing all the pokemon designing basics out of the window.
/vp/ has been making fake Pokemon for ages, doesn't mean they're making a game. A few people making something doesn't mean 4chan is

/vp/ pokemon game ? Get ready for romanceable pokemon.
I think the problem with the fake pokemon in the article is their lack of original gimmicks. All pokemon usually have some gimmick as inspiration for their appearance and abilities. The pokemon in the article all look like they were inspired by existing pokemon, but they don't have any unique gimmick of their own that would make them rememberable and hint what their capabilities are
Is this a romhack or a custom engine
The character design looks very nice though [IMG]http://img.gawkerassets.com/post/9/2013/03/trainers.jpg[/IMG]
[QUOTE=buro;39886339]The character design looks very nice though [IMG]http://img.gawkerassets.com/post/9/2013/03/trainers.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE] certainly better than the recent official ones *cough* [IMG] http://filesmelt.com/dl/pokemon11.png[/IMG]
Yeah, I have to admit the character designs are pretty neat. [QUOTE=RedStar;39886386]certainly better than the recent official ones *cough* [IMG] http://filesmelt.com/dl/pokemon11.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] Donut Girl is cool, the guy looks too much like the male trainer in the last game; and it's the same thing with the trainer we'll have in X/Y. Male trainer designs are becoming a bit dull and repetitive compared with the female ones recently, for some reason.
[QUOTE=RedStar;39886386]certainly better than the recent official ones *cough* [IMG] http://filesmelt.com/dl/pokemon11.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] That guy looks horrible but the girl is cute.
I think 4chan should be a little more tongue-in-cheek with their pokemon designs. More inspirations that would make it more apparent that its a 4chan game. Pokemons like Neckrobeard Housemill, evolves into Nottameem Sadfrog Betamale, evolves into Socash Iceguy, evolves into Missogomist
I think the fakemon are pretty good overall, some need work and some overlap too much with real pokemon. The character design is excellent, and I like the western theme going. I just hope the region and story mirror the western theme eventually. The current region maps have a very diverse environment and most of the suggested plot throws this out of the window. Since it's being made in gamemaker, and isn't a romhack, there's a little more freedom for extra features and events, which I hope is taken advantage of.
[QUOTE=RedStar;39886386]certainly better than the recent official ones *cough* [IMG] http://filesmelt.com/dl/pokemon11.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] The hair on both of them is absolutely horrible.

"Hey guys let's factor out all the skill of trickery and prediction by making this new Bug/Ice type immune to switching in on Rock type attacks!"
Some of them look pretty cool. I like this guy: [IMG]http://img.gawkerassets.com/post/9/2013/03/ca7.jpg[/IMG]

Pokemon combat has always been finding the opponent's weakness and exploiting it better than they can exploit yours. That's how you win.
