Pokemon Game Update
I’ve decided on the roster and chosen their movesets. So leveling up doesn’t get you stats but every time you level up you learn a new move. Max level is 20 so each Pokemon learns 20 moves from leveling and can learn others via TMs. So I’ve set on 94 Pokemon, 46 evolutionary lines each with their own unique ability. I tried get a good swath of Pokemon focusing on Pokemon that represent their type and their own unique niche. I didn’t want Pokemon with duplicate purposes (there is only 1 normal/flying 3 stage evolution bird). I also didn’t want to include fluff Pokemon that are really bad so for some I did push their stats around a bit or change their ability to make them more viable in their niche or to give them their own niche.
I just finished putting the moveset, stats, ability (abilities aren’t implemented fully though), and evolutions for each Pokemon into my game which took forever and I’m happy that it is done. As I play test the game these numbers will undoubtedly change but right now the Pokemon I have with the highest stats for each stat are:
HP - Tangrowth
Att - Gyarados
Def - Golem
SpA - Reuniclus
SpD - Garbodor
Spd - Pidgeot
Full list after the bump if you want, sorry about the length:
No Porygon Z or Glalie?
No Porygon Z becuase it is an evolution that drastically changes stat distribution (lowers Def and SpD but increases SpA and Spd) and I didn’t want evolutions that felt like traps. Pokemon does it with a couple but it is mostly fine because there is so much information about Pokemon out there that players can see it coming, mine though isn’t going to have 100 wikis about it and so I don’t want to ask players to make trade offs if they don’t know what they are.
No Glalie just because I didn’t know if I wanted to code in multiple evolutions for each Pokemon and so I made the list conservative in that regard (this is also why no Eevee). So Snorunt evolves only into Froslass because I like Froslass more (I love Ghost Pokemon, this is reflected in the Pokemon I chose as there are more Ghost Pokemon then there really should be).
Though Glalie’s hidden ability “Moody" does make an appearance, just not on Snorunt.
