The Averr Region is quite an average region. It has got many populous cities, each with their own unique identities. The region also has its own Pokémon League, with eight gyms scattered across the region. Pokémon Trainers start their journey by contacting the Pokémon League, after which a representative will come to their town and give them a starter Pokémon, along with a Pokédex and five Poké Balls.
You are [player], a boy or girl who lives in the southernmost town in the region – Little Town. You had already contacted the Pokémon League expressing desire to start your own journey weeks ago, and they’re coming now. Your journey plays out as one would expect it to – you travel through the region, exploring unknown but interesting places, and taking on the often-strange Gym Leaders of Averr.
As your journey continues, you end up meeting these people dressed in black – Team Rocket, or so they say. They keep murmuring about some space shuttle – wait are they actually living up to their name? What are they going to do with an ACTUAL rocket?
Explore Averr – Travel to many amazing new places such as the coffee shop in Rockhill City, or maybe even the mysterious Ordinary Town?
FR/LG (Old) Tiles – These are nice. I may change some, but don’t expect any major changes.
Challenging Overworld – So not everything is going to be spoon fed to you. Talk to people, explore, and you’ll eventually find your way around.
Radical Tile Puzzles – There are going to be a few mazes and whatnot.
8 Gym System – Battle the 8 Gym Leaders of Averr for their badges. Then you can challenge the Elite Four.
Gym Not Type Dependent – Ha! Guess what? The Gym Leaders are now semi-puns of other things that reflect the Pokémon they use.
New TM Lineup – New TMs such as AncientPower and Poison Gas make their disc-shaped debut.
386 Pokémon – Yeah, no 72X Pokémon. Sorry to anyone who wants Emolga or some “cute” Pikachu clone.
No Mega Evolutions – Also sorry to anyone who wants Giga Charizard XYZ or something.
Type Based Damage Calculation – An amazing new* feature: whether a move’s damage takes in to account Attack and Defense or Sp.Atk or Sp.Def is solely dependent on its type.
Only 3rd Gen Mechanics – Self explanatory. I guess I didn’t really need the previous 2 points.
Running Indoors – Exception to previous point.
No New Moves – No 4-6 Gen Moves. I replaced some old moves like Fury Cutter with new custom moves that will have similar effect to some 4th Gen moves.
Updated Movesets and Stats – I changed up some movesets and stats to make Pokémon (such as the starters) more viable/balanced.
Harder Battles – Battles will be harder, unless you grind. May add restrictions on no X Items during important battles or something.
ALL CAPS – Exploud is in the game, so I have to use ALL CAPITAL LETTERS whenever it’s due. I know this thread has (almost) everything anti-Explouded, but all caps is way uglier in Open Sans than in Pokémon Fire Red in my opinion.
(Hopefully) Funny Dialogue – I mean, I think it’s okay. It’s up to you to decide whether it’s funny or not. The farthest any reference will extend to is another Nintendo game or some stupid meme.
