  1. Thank you so much everyone for checking out this series! It blows me away that this video just hit 500k views around its 4 year anniversary! I really appreciate your support, and I hope that you learn a lot from my other Pokemon tutorial videos!

    I still have some big plans for the future of fangame content, so keep an eye out!

  2. So a while back i made a comment asking if i can make like Crystal on how you EV (Stat Exp) train your pokemon but with the graphics of Emerald.

    I tried checking in the script to see what i can do to make these changes but it’s very very confusing for me 😅

    Does anyone know how am i able to change how pokemon gain EVs to DV and make it like the old game before 3rd gen?

  3. Cool I can make my own region and my ideal starters would be Chikorita Charmander and Piplup and Pikachu and Clefairy would be one of the beginner Pokémon to encounter in the wild

  4. Can I do this with a free version of Unity instead of the RPG Maker XP? i dont have the money to spend on the RPG Maker.

    Or is there any other free software that can be used instead of RPG Maker

  5. If anybody need the essentials link

  6. Hi I’m just here to let y’all know that I will try to make a Pokémon like game. It will be named different and will have many different types of Pokémon like creatures. If anyone has any ideas for the game name or Pokémon like creatures design please feel free to send them at my email- you don’t need to send a design if you want. Just need help.

  7. can it possible to make game with pokemon emerald not pokemon essentials because we can't download pokemon essentials

  8. Is it possible to make a Pokémon game with the graphics of Emerald but the EV training of Pokémon Crystal?

    I really like the graphics of Emerald more than the 3D. I also love how you were able to battle any Pokémon in Crystal and not worry about messing up your Pokémon EVs.

    So basically i want to make a game that looks like Emerald but has the EV training of Crystal.

  9. Brother can you please make a Pokemon game which contains evoceros please . And please make this game and upload vedio and give a link please

  10. Ik this is 4 years later but my intro screen when i start the game is cut off only the upper left portion of the screen shows how could i fix this

  11. I plan on using these assets and your tutorials and transferring them into game maker because I am trying to use game maker for another game, I'm the main sprite guy on our team and I think that having a little side project will help me make crisp assets because I'll know how to optimize them for what we are doing
