"Where there's light, darkness follows. Where there's darkness, light follows."
By Ayrei


This is my first attempt at a Pokemon game which I am currently working on mostly solo. So please note that things may not seem as polished as other and more popular fan games :)

Desideria
A region once protected by the Aspects, powerful trainers bound by Legendary Pokemon, now shrouded by darkness and mystery as a new and modern government known as The Federation takes control of this once beautiful and peaceful region. Team Defiance, a group who opposes this new government, terrorizes this region while the Federation hunts down the remaining Aspects one by one.
You wake up on an island to the south of the main continent.
No memories.
No Pokemon.
Only a name.

A brand new region
A less traditional, and darker story
Pokemon from Gen 1-8
Custom player models
New and unique characters
Remixes from GlitchxCity and more
Hidden Grottos
A unique battle theme for each gym leader and important character
And more

Hi everyone
Here are some screenshots and info about the upcoming massive update I have been working very hard on!

3 New Starters

Grass-Fairy Chikorita
Fire-Ghost Cyndaquil
Water-Dragon Totodile

These 3 new regional variants will replace the current starters. But don't worry, if you are a returning player who does not wish to restart their save file to receive one of these new starters, you will still be able to obtain one.

V3 will include a total of 36 new regional variants, including the new starters. Each one will be obtainable in the current version of the game once released and have uncommon type combinations.

New maps

V3 will feature vibrant new maps and map updates. In V2 I released a small number of map updates to those that felt outdated. In v3, almost every map that did not receive an update in v2 will have one.

Story
Pokemon Vanguard's main focus is storytelling, worldbuilding, and character development. In v3, the player character's background will finally be expanded upon as you begin to understand your purpose for being thrown into this strange new world. V3 will also conclude the first arc of the game and reveal small bits and pieces of lore regarding the main continent and the dangers that surround it.


If you haven't yet, please join the discord where I actively release progress updates. I'll also be revealing news about beta testing for v3, so if you're interested in that I highly suggest you join.

Although it looks cool, the UI is directly taken from Pokemon Infinity. AtomicReactor specifically said tiles are fair game but UI is off-limits.
