Notes:

This is the first project I have actually released to the public and I feel like those who will play it will have a blast! I am super excited to finally show off this project. The main focus of this game was to cut out plot holes and that is exactly what I aimed to do. Bringing back Shadow Pokémon was a must for me as well, as I loved both of the Pokémon Gamecube games and wanted to bring people a similar experience, just in a different form. If you play my game and have any questions, please feel free to reach out and I will gladly be willing to help you out.

Now that this project is complete, I will be transitioning back to my main, larger project by the name of
Pokémon Tabula Rasa. If you are interested in checking out my other work, then please check out that project of mine, as we are working diligently to make it one of the best fangames out there. If you don't want to, that's cool too ;)

Winter Jam 2 Graphic Usage

Pokeball:
After talking with the Silph Co president, you will get your starter inside an upside-down green Poké Ball named the Silph Ball

Suit Trainer:
In this game, the trainer wearing a suit will actually be the character you play as. During the intro sequence, you will pick from one of the three trainer outfits. These have been slightly edited to make the hair and eye colors match. (You can change your suit, but only after you beat the game)

Letter with Note:
Found in the back of the player's truck after beating the two team rocket grunts at the beginning of the game. You will get this again, but with text on it after talking to Bill on Route 25. After all of that, you will obtain the final version with the decrypted text inside Lavender Town's Pokémon Tower.

Leaf:
In one of three pots in a secret room on the S.S. Libra. Because it is tracked with a variable, it will be in the last pot interacted with out of the three. To get to the Celebi room, you have to interact with all of the other bookshelves on the S.S. Libra. On the last bookshelf that is interacted with, you will get a message telling you to take a book out. Once this is done, go to the second floor of the S.S. Libra and enter the room farthest to the left. Once you interact with this bookshelf, it will ask you if you want to move it aside. Once done, the secret room of Celebi is revealed. (NOTE: One of the bookshelves that need to be interacted with is on the 3rd floor of the S.S. Libra. To complete the event, DO NOT TALK TO THE CAPTAIN THAT IS BLOCKING THE STAIRS. If you talk to the captain, you will not be able to go back down to access the secret room because it will roll the credits.)

My Run ended with a crash in Vermillion after the 5 grunts...
Usually when I make these I have to collect my thoughts and try to come up with positives and things I liked about the game so I can accurately reflect on my time spent while giving ample criticism. This game however is the first in a while that has made me genuinely want to gush about how much I love it. The attention to detail and what lengths you went to in order to make everything accurate to Gen 3 was something not a lot of devs try to do. Not to mention the premise is so simple yet you take it in a very interesting direction and make it a lot of fun along the way.

I understand not having wild pokemon because its a shadow pokemon game, but that makes battling and getting prepared for trainers exceptionally difficult and it feels like every battle is a mountain you need to climb, or like you're trying to swim and struggling to keep your head above water when a large wave comes down.

Sadly I wasn't able to finish the game, I got a crash in Vermillion town and it brought my back to Bill's house, and I don't have the energy to keep playing. It was definitely one of my favorite Jam games so far!! Excellent work!

It has something to do with the footprints an following pokemon - it may have something to do with my first pokemon in the party being fainted, and my next pokemon walking on the sand and the footprints might have gotten messed up, I'm unfamiliar with the scripts tho

Hey there! I got a chance to play your game and I reviewed it on my channel! Here are some of my thoughts:

I really like the aesthetic of this game. I always enjoy going into a region of an official game and experiencing a story that adds lore to the official games. It's done well, too, as the mapping, graphics, and music was faithful to the FireRed/LeafGreen which created a link between the two games. I also loved the little animation that popped up when a shadow Pokemon appeared. However, I thought there were some issues with the writing. I go over this more in-depth in my video, but I felt that a lot of events that happened throughout the game happened for no reason, or they didn't make sense. Overall though, I enjoyed this game a lot!
