Topic: Collaborations / Looking for Graphic Artists or Programmers To Help With Pokemon Game Development. (Need 1 of each)

This forum is just as worthless as RAGEZONE.

“I’ll just go ahead and post the source code, blueprints and everything on the forum so you can steal the ideas and formulate your own team and project.” People in this generation are lazy.

The pokemon game was unnamed. Don’t make stuff up. Creating a new account name is not something that is on my TO DO LIST at the current moment.

Besides, what help am I asking for: 2 Experienced People. We have old adverts posted on 20 forums. Kongregate & Ragezone are the most stuck up forums. “You Need To See Everything Before Helping”. Who in there right mind posts that information when the goal is to make profit?

I talk on average to 5 people a day from all the forums we have adverts. It isn’t necessarily that incredibly hard to find help. Just make a post and make everything sound interesting.

I’m just surprised the same 4 to 5 worthless people keep replying to this topic. Can’t you moderators find something else entertaining to do then just stare at a computer screen?

Someone can lock this topic. If these arrogant people can’t show any qualifications. There isn’t any reason to hang around and reply to inexperienced people.

2D / 2.5 D Graphics For Now.

We are saving the 3D/Isometric for finishing our second project. The name of that mmorpg is Habarku and is a civilization game based on warriors types from past history.

Send me a Private message or email me at pkmnion@yahoo.com if interested.

Obviously if were going to change the monsters. We are going to write a completely new storyline (out of space monsters (example)), create all new mapping tiles, change the battling format, how to catch the monsters etc.

The game will be completely different then any pokemon, digimon, yu gi oh whatever.

We already have a basic blueprint created and it is being programmed.

None of you think outside the box much do ya : P Just keep hammering away that none of us have thought threw any of this!!!!

We are actually considering the idea of making new pokemon. Ron (graduate graphic artist) has already made a tutorial for creating new pokemon sprites. It would allow us to play around with creating new creatures & consider the option of making a profit. We of course wouldn’t call the game pokemon then.

The reason I’m upset at our previous mappers is that one of them took our early information (forum topics, blueprints, some completed sprites, early interface ideas) and gave it to one of the current pokemon mmo’s (pdod).

We couldn’t trust our old mapping team then.

So, we banned them all and found new mappers and shrunk the team so that only trustworthy individuals are working on the project.

We currently now have 3 mappers who are committed. The complete staff is only 13 people total. We are very sketchy about who works on this project with us which is why we have adverts all over the place and receive emails daily about people wanting to help out.

We did discuss the idea of changing the names a long time ago. Once our game becomes a success we will make that change. We first need to get a steady base of players.

Our team has researched all angles of making profits. We are just going to play it safe first and make changes as time goes by so that we can profit.

Lastly, we just got picked up by a indie company. So, things are really excellent at the moment.

btw pokemmo is a rip off of a project. All they are doing is making the rom’s multiplayer and hosting it on a server. There project has zero creativity.

We will give items/pokemon to gamers for donations and that money will only be used for development costs.

By doing this You will break the copyright law, such game can’t generate any income itself (this including item shops, memberships, payd content etc.), only advertisements are allowed (as long as they wont appear in game) and other methods that dont involve copyrighted item itself. No matter if cash earned this way will cover developement costs or they will be used to buy some plasma TV ;) Income is an income no matter how You ll spend it.

Have You sent e-mail to nintendo ?

BR

Then why hasn’t PDoD, PWO or Pokemonium been shut down for doing this?

PWO was making the biggest killing in profits when they had there giveaways for donations.

And Nintendo’s response to me was pretty much exactly what you had said. Don’t make a profit. They did mention that money being raised for developmental reasons as long as it can be proven it was used for that is okay.

Anyway if You simply want to create this game just to show the world that You (or Yours group) can do it – it’s ok, other thing is if it have a sense, but I wont judge. In second if You want to get any money from this – its not going to happen and proably You will have probs with nintendo, and debts for servers.

Imo much better way is to contact nintendo, what they will let You to do or what they dont want to even hear about. For sure they will let You to create fan’s game and prohibite commercial game based on pokemon world ;)

Contact forms :

For any other legal inquiry or concern, e-mail us at noalegal@noa.nintendo.com

Simple mail wont cost You much but can possibly grant You with clear vision of situation .

One of our programmers jisa owns a server farm. Anything server related is taken care of and we don’t have to pay anything.

We are planning to make money only from advertisements.

Obviously the point of saying that a 5 year old can map is that it isn’t a hard skill to learn and become good at.

Were did I say that I need mappers?

A 5 year old can map. Mapping is simple. The old mappers we had were a problem so one of the programmers banned them. I did not get rid of those people. We now have new mappers.

I’m kind of really entertained the same 3 or 4 people keep replying to this topic. It’s hilarious to think that their is a LOZ mmorpg now and Nintendo doesn’t care. There is even Digimon and other games. There is even an advert for a gundam wing game on kongragate.

Those are illegal.

Whats the beef with a group of people making a pokemon game then?

Nobody here has really listed any kind of logical reasons why it shouldn’t be done?

All that anyone has done is criticize and nobody has put any thoughts into answering any of my questions. I have over 15 adverts on various forums. Most forums are very supportive of a game like this being made. You criticize me the same way any other pokemon mmorpg gets criticized before they become a success.

No pokemon game has been shut down since pokenet. We aren’t nearly using as much intellectual property. We are creating our own map tiles & sprites. Pokemon and its features are the only thing we are stealing.

And to clarify the post earlier. We don’t have 16 people. We have 13. 8 of them are active all the time. We need 1 more graphic artist & 2 can’t do all the work themselves. And of the 8 programmers we could always use an extra hand with that. Database takes a long time.

The last thread was locked and shut down. I pay no attention to that.

We have 2 graduate level programmers. 1 who is attending ITT again to further his education. The other works for a company in mexico. He is currently coding a gps application for traffic and working on the project.

We also have a more then great graphic artist from gamedev. His account name is Rdemeo if you want to look him up.

I’m just tired of seeing the same crap over and over again. Criticism doesn’t bother me at all because i’ve seen the same kind of posts before on other developers adverts. “A Pokemon MMO will be shut down and never succeed” It didn’t stop default and viperspray from establishing pokemonium or Sickbailey from creating PDoD.

And as far as contacting Nintendo. It is near impossible to get ahold of them. The only office I can get ahold of is customer service and that doesn’t solve anything.

Lastly, we only have 13 people working on the game now. Most of the 17 before were mappers and were irrelevant to the games progress.

Majority of the 13 people now are programmers and it isn’t hard to map. I can teach a 5 year old to do that in ten minutes.

We need 1 more programmer & graphic artist. Please send a list of experience/qualifications to pkmnion@yahoo.com if interested in helping.

Pokenet was shut down because they used all the intellectual property that was in the handheld games. That is why they were originally shut down.

PWO was shut down for one year because they were dumb a**** and made bank by selling pokemon to players. Pokemon = intellectual property.

PDoA played the game the correct way. They sold sprites created by themselves and made up items that aren’t owned by Nintendo/Gamefreak.

If nobody has realized. Pokemon World Online has advertisements on a bunch of websites. They now use adsense. As long as people go to the page with the ad or click the advertisement, those developers make money. Nintendo/Gamefreak can’t shut them down for that because it has nothing to do with copyrighting.

Why hasn’t Pokemon World Online been shut down yet?

Why hasn’t Pokemon Den Of Ages been shut down yet?

Why hasn’t Pokemon Dawn Of Darkness been shut down yet?

Why has Pokenet made a comeback?

Why is it that POL, which will be better then all of the above pokemon games won’t be shut down?

Why is it that anytime people make a pokemon mmo they are always criticized?

Flamers are always going to write crap such as all of you above.

Our team is using skype, dropbox, teamviewer and paid for php forum to communicate. Progress is going great.

Pokemon mmorpg’s can profit off of advertisements by using adsense. PDoA makes a profit by using a separate website to sell items & sprites.

If you know how to recruit the right people (college students, college graduates). Anything is possible.
