*UPDATE* Medals! You can now earn medals for completing the interactive battles!

Its the winter-y episode 7, that I was hoping to have out while it was still winter. But better late then never *cough* SMBZ... Thanks to flash's minuscule 16k frame limit I had to add a bunch of convoluted coding to get it to work. But I think the animation turned out a bit better in this one. Plus I cleaned up the interactive battle code a lot. So hopefully, you won't find many bugs. If you do spot one, let me know (and be specific)! I'm a little miffed I got so close to the 20mb limit. I really need to cut back on these episodes. Run time is about 20 mins.

The interactive battles are optional for those who don't want to play. This episode also contains the first of my gym leader contest winners. Jay the Armor Titan by Ty Hiro!

Great work and very fun gameplay. The stories just keep getting better and better! I loved when you implemented the "participate" option into the episodes, it makes it more fun and I also liked that you added the voices. The implementation of pokemon music really fits in and I liked it very much. I do have to point out a cool glitch though when I chose the "participate" option against Kyourem. I chose houndour and burned Kyourem. Then I went with dig and Kyourem attacked me with glaciate. My houndour got the status "frozen", but he was still beneath the surface as it was using dig. All of Kyourem's attacks missed and at the same time he was getting burned every turn. While that was happening, hondour was still beneath the ground saying "hondour is frozen". Just wanted to point out that glitch I found! Anyways, awesome episode and I hope you keep making more, Teejay!

Really? I found that glitch during the testing phase. I could have sworn I took care of it.

Excellent as always, Teejay! I discovered your series when Ep. 6 was in production, and I have to say, it's amazing! If Nintendo ever sees this, I hope they make a new Pokémon game inspired on the series (with proper copyright to you, of course). Now, about this episode, the one thing I didn't like is that the frame rate seemed to slow down drastically during battles. It's nothing too bothersome, but it just doesn't look right. Think it can be fixed?

Besides that, nice job, TJ. Just please make sure you don't get stumped doing this series at all. With the discontinuation of SMBZ, the number of series I currently watch was reduced to 2 (one of them is this, and the other is Luigi: Two Lights Hero), I've been really scared that other awesome series such as this might meet their demise. Please don't let that happen, man. If not for you, then do it for us! Peace out, dude!


teejay-number13 responds:

Not sure why the frame rate slows down on the battles. The animated background maybe? This series is inspired by my idea for a Pokemon game.
I know what you mean. I've seen a lot of great series go the way of the dinosaurs myself without getting finished. I'll try not to do that. The problem is that too many flash makers have realized that pandering well animated, one minute shorts will get them as much attention as a long, well written series. I'll check out that Two Lights Hero, I'm longing for some good series myself.

Quite simply, well done with this. The interactive battes are a very nice touch, and the voice acting is still very well performed, even though the cast was drastically cut since last time. Love how the story is progressing so far as well, it's a much darker take on the Pokemon series which is normally very corny and kiddy, yet it doesn't take itself too seriously. It really makes me want to crack out the Gameboy and play the games. I noticed the plug for Eastbeast's Shyguy Flash too. I've seen the beta and think you guys did very well with that too.

As for the negatives (don't worry, there ain't much) I still feel that some of the animated poses of the Pokemon during battles are a bit jumpy (Houndour for example). As for the line art you made during the credits, could I suggest you stay clear of gradients? Sometimes you can get away with them with backgrounds etc, but I just feel for characters (especially anime style) they need to be shaded manually otherwise they look out of place. Takes a little more time, but the end result looks that much better.

All in all though that's all I could find wrong with this. Well done on Daily 4th, I'm just glad there are still some good sprite flashes left out there. Good stuff. :>


teejay-number13 responds:

I didn't do the sprites for the Pokemon in battle, so I have to take what I can get. Personally, I like the animated ones versus using a static picture, but some of them have 100+ frames of animation so it's hard to manually repair them totally.
As far as the gradients, for some reason when I converted the ending from 720 to 852 the gradients got all messed up. I thought I had fixed them, but maybe I missed some? Either way, I'm still not that great an artist so my shading may look worse then the gradients.

I wish you guys were more..... enthusiasticer when u are voice acting, i mean, it was so plain and stuff,
I liked how u allow us to battle even though it was really really easy = =, it's a rough start from here, but i know u will progress as continue to do this, practice makes perfect, and please be more enthusiasticer


teejay-number13 responds:

Well, Teejay is supposed to be a stoic character anyway. Besides, I hate characters with over-the-top personalities. This isn't a parody. Oh and, "enthusiascticer" is not a word.
