    Default The official update for Pkmn HOF!

    Guess it's time to post an official update thread now, hopefully you will like it!

    1. New Maps: We have completed a few new maps for Kanto and Orange Islands. We are using Kyledove tileset now, with additions of Wesley FG, Jonny and ~Red's tiles. I'd like to thank my mappers, tile artists and random contributors for doing such an excellent job. Here is the Viridian Forest map made by head mapper Jonny:

      Spoiler: Viridian Forest 




    And here are the Valencia Island and Tangelo Island maps by Hall of Famer, I'm still trying to adopt Jonny's mapping style. Please leave comments on my maps if you want to, constructive criticism is appreciated!

      Spoiler: Valencia Island 




      Spoiler: Tangelo Island 




    Also I think it's necessary to showcase the orangen islands tiles made by tile artist ~Red. His work is amazing!

      Spoiler: ~Red's tiles 



    Note: ~Red's Orange Islands tiles are used in Pkmn HOF and his own fan game only. The screenshot above is converted to .jpg already, please do not ask permission to use his custom tiles, thanks.

    2. New Character Sprites: Several sprites for Kanto and Orange Islands characters are completed already. I'd like to thank all my spriters this time!

      Spoiler: Cerulean Sisters 





      Spoiler: Rivals of Indigo Plateau Conference 





      Spoiler: Other Characters 




    These are the new item sprites for Orange Islands, credit given to Lynncreed:

      Spoiler: Item sprites 




    3. New Pokemon: Are you surprised that new pokemon do exist in Pkmn HOF? Those pokemon are based on existing pokemon made by spriters who wish to see their fakemon in a fan game. I have implemented four pre-evolution pokemon made by Suzume into the game Pkmn HOF, and here is the screenie! They look cute, don't they?

      Spoiler: Suzume's pokemon 




    4. New Concepts: We have been working on new concepts as well. Most of the new concepts are still under development, but the new HM project is almost completed. You can take a look at the new HMs we are going to implemented here, we still need a better name for HM14 though:

      Spoiler: HM16 Project 

    HM01 Cut:
    A Pok?mon using Cut can remove a certain type of tree, which acts as an obstacle between the player and their destination. In certain games, it can also be used to cut tall grass.

    HM02 Fly:
    Players can fly to select spots they've been to, usually outside the entrance to a town's Pok?mon Center.

    HM03 Surf:
    Surf can be used outside of battle to travel over bodies of water. When doing so, wild water-type Pok?mon may be encountered. Surfing is a very important mechanic of the games. Surf is needed in most games to progress through it, sometimes to reach other islands and cities.

    HM04 Strength:
    Players can move round boulders around the field. Many puzzles in the games require boulders to be moved around in a certain way with Strength.

    HM05 Flash:
    Outside of battle, Flash will illuminate dark caves. The effect will last until the player exits the cave. When the player re-enters the cave, it will be dark again.

    HM06 Rock Smash:
    Smashes rocks to clear the path, potentially finds Pok?mon inside (usually Geodude).

    HM07 Waterfall:
    Allows players to climb waterfalls. Note that in Generations II and III, the HM move Waterfall is not required to go down waterfalls, whereas the first two games of Generation IV requires the HM. However, in Pok?mon Platinum, the HM is not required to go down waterfalls anymore, regaining its original behavior.

    HM08 Dive:
    Allows players to go underwater in specific spots when they are Surfing. The only region these spots (and the HM itself) have been found so far is in Hoenn.

    HM09 Whirlpool:
    Whirlpool will make a comeback in Pkmn HOF! And yes, Whirlpool clears whirlpools in the field.

    HM10 Rock Climb:
    A Pok?mon using Rock Climb can scale rocky surfaces. It will be crucial for players to reach Danny's gym since you have to climb the mountain to reach him in future update.

    HM11 Lavaflow:
    Similar to Surf, the hidden machine Lavaflow enables players to travel over the bodies of Lava. Wild fire-type Pok?mon may be encountered.

    HM12 Quicksand:
    Ever played Mario 64? There is a special type of the sand which drains Mario to its bottom, thus an instant kill. You can surf on the sand by riding on a turtle shell, and this idea is implemented into Pkmn HOF now. Quicksand is similar to Surf too, and wild ground-type Pok?mon may be encountered.

    HM13 Vacuum:
    Large flying-type Pok?mon and Legendary Pok?mon can use Vacuum to clear up the strong wind and other obstacles which stops the players from travel forward.

    HM14 Elec-Drain:
    Electric fense is present in dungeons like Power plant and Rocket OI hideout(the electric fense exists in Vermilion City as well, but you won't be able to learn Elec-Drain by then). A Pok?mon using Elec-Drain can clear up the path and prevent dangerous things from happening.

    HM15 Mega Dig:
    Mega Dig is a way more powerful move than Dig, and more importantly, it allows player to go underneath and explore the "underworld". Wanna see the underground city in New Kanto? Then you need Mega Dig badly...

    HM16 Chem-Synthesis:
    Certain new items can be formed by combining two existing items using Chem-Synthesis. This is crucial for Undead-pokemon lovers, since the item Dark Potion can only be obtained by mixing a Potion with a Dark Matter. Other useful and rare items can be synthesized as well.

    We have a similar project called TM160, which may takes longer to implement...


    Besides, a significant change has to be made for Orange Islands. Since the new maps are at least three times bigger than the original maps, it becomes a lot more painstaking to surf from one island to another.

      Spoiler: Orange Islands regions 




    As you may see from the screenshot above, the entire Orange Archipelago is divided into five smaller regions - Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, Southeast and Mandarin. The Lapras saved from the gangsters on Mount. Tangelo will be important in this case, and players can ride on this Lapras to travel between one mini-region and another. More screenshots will be given after my spriters finish the OW sprite of Ash riding on Lapras!

    We have new concept for the gyms in Kanto as well, and the gym tiles will be revised. Here is a preview of Cerulean gym:

      Spoiler: Cerulean Gym 




    On the other hand, Pkmn HOF game staff, partners, contributors and supporters are encouraged to participate in the Viridian city trainer Hall project. Please drop me a VM or PM if you are interested.

    5. New Features: Custom features are significant for Pkmn HOF as well. Most of you might have seen the D/P pokemon selection screen, and this is just one of the new features of Pkmn HOF. We are currently working on the Iphone Menu screen, and here is the first version of the new menu screen:

      Spoiler: Iphone menu 




    The Iphone screen is still under revision, and you will notice a bigger change next time!

    Besides, I announce that the Wifi-feature of Pkmn HOF is almost completed, and online battle, online trade and mystery gift features will be added to the game. I'm sorry this should have been done a long time ago...

    We are also working on other custom features. You might have seen pink pokemon in this game before, and the idea of pink pokemon has been revised. We are not going to replace shiny pokemon sprites by pink sprites anymore, and a new column pink form has been created. In this way, most pokemon will have at least three forms - Normal, shiny and pink. The item pinkan berry can be used to turn a certain pokemon to its pink form, but exceptions are possible since Legendary pokemon are immune to pinkan berry. There is going to be a pinkan forest on pinkan island, where wild pink pokemon can be found and captured.

    On the other hand, the D/P moves/abilities project will be implemented in Pkmn HOF, thanks to Lokiferne(who is already officially a scripter of Pkmn HOF). Screenies will be given in recent future!


    Again, I'd like to thank all those who have contributed to the project Pkmn HOF. This game is going nowhere without the help from my game staff, partners, contributors and supporters. Please notice me if you have a new idea to purpose, or if you can't find your name on the game staff or credit list. Have a good week, everyone! ^^

    These are some nice updates for Pkmn:HoF. It only gives more of a reason to wait for v1.4! I can't wait for it.
    What wills you to be here?
