Updated

Hey everyone.

I'm not completely sure if I'm going through with this yet, but what would you people think of a Pokemon Master Game?

Here's a preview of the first room:
http://www.swfcabin.com/open/124277899 0
(Songs used by Clayway and awesomeshot49)

This would mean no episodes for a while, but I'd end up with a huge and awesome game.

Please comment and include:
-should i make it or not
-if so, what would you like to see in the game
-any problems/glitches in first room
-other useful stuff

Thanks

feel free to add me to your msn pokeflash@live.com

Not promising anything, but I've seen your episodes, their quite good. I might be available to help with some coding, but I am busy with a Power of Three project. Either way, good luck...

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Oh.. well thanks anyways.

No please no you're animations are shitty sprite ones with bad animated old 4chan memes please stop torturing us, you're only fan base is a bunch of 10-12 year olds who have lost faith in real life because of people like you making shitty pokemon animations they sit at home and watch all day.

Please for the children stop it now.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Favourite Movies :
"The Penis Collection"

'Nuff said.

So, how exactly is this gonna work? Different starters, different maps? Is it going to be humorous and silly like the episodes, is there gonna be a serious level up system? If the maps and stuff are the same, like in the pokemon master episodes, it's based off Kanto, because if everything is like that then it's pretty much just another Fire Red Leaf Green kind of thing. Otherwise, I love playing different pokemon games made by fans.

(Updated ) POKEMANMASTER responds:

It would be like the games, serious level-up, but with jokes throughout. Pokemon may have some moves from the movies, dialogue will be tongue in cheek, etc.

Please include more Magikarps and crazy cyborg robots.(Crazy Cyborg Magikarps)

POKEMANMASTER responds:

are you tahm10?

2009-05-19 21:12:36

This reeks of copyright infringement. What exactly would be the point of the game? Same as the existing pokemon games?

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Well I'm not claiming it's my stuff and I'm not making any money so it's not really, at least no more then any of my movies and many more games out there

I dunno if it would be worth goign through all that crap, like inventories of pokemon and stuff liek that with their own inventories and blahhh blahhghgh blahghhgh.

But if you do make it, please use voice acting and make sure there's nothing wrong with the sprites. Try to upgrade your animations for some of the moves, especially Lick, which is the one I can remember hte most currently, because that one really makes me cringe.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Well actually I was planning on making it all text like the real games, not voiced. I mean, there'll probably be hundreds of NPCs to voice so it seems to make more sense this way.

Sure, I'll upgrade Lick :P

And I'm not sure what you mean with the inventories.

should you do it or not you choose but if you do make it make it like pokemon red/ blue i liked that type of game play i don't know about any glitches or any useful stuff the rest is up to you
good luck and God bless

POKEMANMASTER responds:

thanks

No.

Just be careful, I'd consult a lawyer or something. For instance: Say you recreate a video game using the same characters, mechanics, and even sprites. The company can claim you cost them customers (Who would want to pay for a game that's been remade as freeware?) by using their copyrighted or trademarked materials and sue you for damages.

I'm not a lawyer, but you should talk to one.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

I don't think I can even afford to talk to one. But there's tons of parody games/movies out there, whether it be pokemon or anything really.

Prime Example : Mario

Nintendo is pretty rich and I really doubt they'd actually take legal action.


ChdongaChdonga

2009-05-19 21:25:10

I'd say if you do make it, it should just be the hack of a real Pokemon game that you port into flash. But y'know, that's... impossible...

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Yeah, and the impossibility is sort of an issue.


SonucaisSonucais

2009-05-19 21:25:15

Accurate the move code. I would make tests of all teh codes before add to the game.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Well that's one of the reasons I posted the demo. Please let me know if you find any glitches or problems.


DrMagikarpDrMagikarp

2009-05-19 21:25:57

Does the game include Glitch Pokemon?

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Maybe

just tried out the first room and thought it was great. i didnt have any problems with it and i would love to play more if you go through with it. pokegrounds was a fun little section in it.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Thanks a lot.

2009-05-19 21:35:38

Will there be original Pokémon like Pikachu???

POKEMANMASTER responds:

yeah

Alright you had me scared for a second!!!

POKEMANMASTER responds:

I can't leave out pikachu :3


william95zwilliam95z

2009-05-19 21:39:52

you should make it so that you can pick any of the starters and you should have a gold magikarp (shiny). also you should make it so you could get all the legendaries

POKEMANMASTER responds:

hmm.. okay, I'll keep those ideas in mind

I really laughed at the cabinet by the bookshelf. Pokegrounds is awesome.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

haha, thanks

2009-05-19 21:42:48

Oh also I did notice. In the text area when i "talked" to the bed, I was still able to change my directions.

(Updated ) POKEMANMASTER responds:

Hm... I'll check it out thanks

EDIT - checked it out. It's acutally in all text boxes. Luckily, this is an easy fix. Thanks a lot for pointing it out!
EDIT2 - Yep, I was able to fix it :)

Great start, I know it will be a good game.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

thanks

You should do it, actually, I am so sure you should do it you should even draw the sprites from zero, the backgrounds and fucking everything, maybe even IMPROVE instead of using someone's talent!

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Well it's got to keep in a similar style with my movies. It's Pokemon Master the game.

Of course you should make it. I don't think there is one flash actual pokemon game - for free, at least. One-up 'em all. Put in a mix of the new and GSC pokes, and make new leaders. That would be fuckin' awesome. I would be in debt from the bottom of my heart. And throw in some secret sex scenes, k'? lol

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Lol sex scenes in a pokemon game?

Thanks for your feedback

You are now average NG user, no matter how troll-like your posts are.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Just now? I think I was no longer considered a troll after 11 flashes and 4 trophies :\

2009-05-19 23:18:59

(In response to your response to my comment :3)

I forgot about all the NPCs, so I guess text would be needed.

By inventories, I meant like your items bag, your inventory of the pokemon in your party, and hteir inventories of moves available, not to mention the PP left on each move and all that.

So making it would be a real pain >.<

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Yeah, it will be a long, long project to make.

Thanks for your feedback!

You should try and add in like a party (ash/misty/brock) sorta thing if possible.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Maybe... I'll keep it in mind

I wouldn't mind one, but there are problems with your controls. If you hold down one button, then push another and let of it, you will keep going that direction (even though you are only holding down a different button at that point).

(Updated ) POKEMANMASTER responds:

Ah! Good find, I think I can fix this fairly easily though. Thanks a lot!
EDIT - Yep, I was able to fix it :)

Dude Make it...
I can help you with the coding... I'm reeeeaaaaalllyy just being bored here...
oh And your AWESOME dude!

Note to all shitty comment on this:
Why dont you all accept this, i mean his making this stuff for us to have fun!!!
Fucking ASSHOLES like you people should die die die!!!!!

(ahem) Make more movie and make the Game!! I'm supporting you all the way...

POKEMANMASTER responds:

thanks, but one thing - There will probably not be movies while I'm making it :(


MAYORMCHEESEMAYORMCHEESE

2009-05-19 23:32:00

I think it already exists dude, it's called "Pokemon Leaf Green"

POKEMANMASTER responds:

It's sort of a parody of Leaf Green. Try out the demo posted and you'll know what I mean - most of those things won't be appearing in a pokemon game (try the computer and cabinet specifically :P)

It's nice movement but without an actual battle or gameplay or hint of a storyline it's hard to judge. How will you make it different from the actual Pokemon storyline? Why would I want to play this rather than the actual game? A big reason why I hate Pokemon is because it's too easy. Once you hit a certain level you can pretty much own the elite four with like 2 or 3 different pokemon 1 hit KOs.

So just give an example (or lots) of how your game will be better than the actual game so I'd get a better idea of what to expect. Thanks.

(Updated ) POKEMANMASTER responds:

Well besides the fact it would be free (obviously), the main point of this is the humour. Check out the demo I posted and check everything out - in the first room there is already signs of the humour. Hopefully you should even find the first room of my game is better then the first room of pokemon in this way.

Also I'll try and make the difficulty good and challenging.

2009-05-20 01:28:09

i'd rather just play an actual pokemon game

(Updated ) POKEMANMASTER responds:

Even if you rather would (which I'm trying to avoid) don't forget the $

Also ,the game is not meant to be identical. It is a parody just like my movies.

Plus, I'm sure you'd rather be doing a lot of things on Newgrounds.

Do you have an IQ of 10?

2009-05-20 02:19:40

if you do end up doing this make it so you can start off with any first level pokemon so i can start off with a growlithe and make my beloved arcanine lol, also just be careful of copy right infringement, i mean your basically just recreating the game with your jokes.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

hm... I'll keep it in mind

Firstly, the copyright issues everyone has been talking about:
Nintendo normally don't take action on any sort of copyright infringement from small Flash developers. However, by replicating so many aspects of your game, you're at risk.
I doubt they would, unless your game got very popular and they considered it to be 'budging in' on their profits (as people are playing your game instead of buying theirs). However, they may be glad for the publicity; especially if you put in lots of ridiculous "Buy Pokémon!" messages.

Secondly, I feel that, although using Pokémon will attract lovers of the series, many people on Newgrounds will dislike the game for your 'theft' of the image, as well as those who just have an obsessive dislike of the series.
For this, and reason one above, I strongly suggest you change the game from Pokémon to your own contraption. What I mean by this is, have your own characters, storyline, monsters, etc. Of course, keep in plently of Pokémon references to please the fans.
I honestly think that this will make it more accepted on Newgrounds and the internet in general.

Finally, regardless of which style you go for in the end, I really hope you're using tile-based programming. Read up on it if you haven't heard of it.
Simply, tile-based programming is the kind of engine Nintendo uses for Pokémon, and it makes a huge difference to the file size of the .swf file; instead of storing each room as a bunch of movie clips, you store it as a series of numbers.
If you decide to use this path, I suggest you have one array for the floor, one for the objects/people, and one for the object functions (eg. what the character says when you interact with the object).

I hope you take this all into account, and good luck!
By the way, the Flash forum is always there if you need any programming help! Just make sure to select the small bit of code causing the problem (not the whole thing!), add a file to demonstrate your problem if you wish (both .fla and .swf would be helpful), and make sure to clearly explain your problem, as well as the Actionscript version you are using.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Very helpful! I'll keep it in mind thanks.

Seems like an interesting game. Can't wait to try the full version. Not sure if these are bugs but from what I noticed from when I was testing it out the preview was that If you held any of the arrows in a direction and talked to something the character would still be moving. Also the left side of the bed is bugged it think because when you move up while on the left side of the bed your fine but when you move down while on the left side of the bed the character seems like its having a hard time moving. but thats all I noticed from the preview I'll be sure to post more things if I find anything else. Also Make it xD. What I would like to see I am unsure at the moment but like I said before if I think of anything I'll let you know

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Yep, all those bugs have now been fixed. Thanks!

2009-05-20 05:01:31

don't make it i think you should just keep on going with your cartoons also i love wingdings

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Hm... I'll think about it.

2009-05-20 05:07:36

Draw the characters and enviroments yourself and I might be interested.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

It's Pokemon master the game, obviously I'm keeping the same style it has to be connected

2009-05-20 05:40:35

Damn you should really make this , also why the hell cant i go
inside my own bed! :D fix that and also when i found the porn collection i've got bugged couldnt move an inch still very nice tough! :D

Recep-Lan uses......Aahh forget it your invulnerable to anything :D.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Well I thought it would look weird walking over the bed. For the other bug, I'll check it out in a sec.

i recon, you should do it. itll be a fun game to play. to anyone who is saying not to do it for reasons they shouldnt even give a shit about, eg your fanbase is a bunch of 12-13 year olds. just dont listen to them.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

okay thanks

2009-05-20 07:23:15

Glitch
1.Go downstairs and when your in the " What fo you think" part right click and press rewind and you start in a different position.
2.When you begin press up. Then right click press forward then back and you begin looking at the video games.
3. Everything glitches up when you do 1.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Well right click will be disabled in the full version.

I think it has a lot of potential. I vote on you making it! I think if you add the types of moves you have in your flashes it can be really fun and silly.

And thanks for the wingdings.

POKEMANMASTER responds:

Thanks
