[Cool-Looking and Resource-Wasting Banner Coming Soon]

What you're looking at is another of those let's-create-our-own-Pokemon-game threads. The name? Pokemon Topaz 2 (I had a forum called the Pokemon Topaz RPG once, hence the 2). However, this one's not going to need a game engine or much in the way of graphics. I'm going to make this a play-by-email RPG done mostly through text, the only graphics being sprites of some original Pokemon developed for Topaz 2 by you and I. Well, when I say that, I mean you. Because I suck at spriting. Which is (mostly) the point of this entire thread!

I'm looking for the following people to help me sort this thing out:
1-3 Spriters
1 World & Region Designer (who will be working with me)
1-3 Pokemon Designers (not images [although sketches are useful], these are the people who'll [if you're in any doubt] will think up ideas for original Pokemon, their moves and behaviour, in the same amount of detail as in the real Pokemon games)

All these people must be willing to follow this through to its end (whether it be success or mid-way defeat-admitting), and be intelligent enough to think of original concepts (except the spriters, who will be told what to make by the slave-driving Pokemon Designers and yours truly).

If you're interested, reply here and tell me what you can help out with (it can be more than one thing if you think you're up to it).

I'd be willing to work on the pokémon ideas team, I've always got time to do some rough sketching and planning in 2 hours of bus journey's a day. Count me in Vexay. =P

Welcome in. :tongue3: I'm thinking that either sprites or anime-style drawings of the Pokemon would be good here, so if anyone's interested in drawing some Pokemon for the project, please let me know.

Anyway, Alex, post or PM any ideas you have. I've got a few that I'm fine-tuning at the moment - they'll be the starters.

Bad initial drawing of water starter (http://artpad.art.com/?icqjnp17rt8s)

A similarly bad drawing of its second evolutionary stage (http://artpad.art.com/?icqk0x136pf0)

A (bad) drawing of the fire starter (http://artpad.art.com/?icqkgd19f8lg)

Grass starter (just as crap) - bear with this one, it takes a while to show all the stuff for some reason (http://artpad.art.com/?icqkttvhazw)

Heres my first Idea, A Steel/Electric Clamp pokémon called Ragnor


That weird lookin thing at the front is a clamp that can has a 2 ton crushing force. Ouch =P Even worse, the clamp send electric currents down itself, giving the foe a nice shock as well.

It shall be used - just needs some better drawing equipment.

Anyway, at the moment I'm getting started on world design, but you keep at it.
