Some UI elements have been created, we are finalizing the design of the combat system(not coded yet, but it will be). The inventory is somewhat working, and we are deciding on traditional or non-traditional starter pokemon, a desicion in which you may have input on as well, just follow this link >>> Forums.planetpokemon.net
To go into some specifics of the combat system, I asked our Lead Coordinator, Endie, to describe what has been done so far, she says
“We have finalized a lot of the essence of combat and how you will be able to progress your pokemon with skills. We have simplified the system to make it easier to jump into, but also very fluid for veteran players. We are starting to design some early moves for testing.”
And with that said, we can all be sure that the team is still active, and working hard to bring us a game that we can all enjoy and play together.
That’s all for this week, we hope to bring you more news in the next issue of The Planet Pokemon Bi-Weekly!
Tournaments and Rankings
Hey all you battle hungry trainers, here’s some of the latest amazing highlights from our recent tournaments, and a look at the current rankings.
Tournament 1 of week 33 was one of the biggest tournaments that we have had in a long time, with a whopping 16 participants! All of the participants fought hard and well, leaving us with the strongest two trainers in the tournament, Satoshi and Zangoose. They both fought hard and well in their final match. The overall score at the end was 5-4, with Zangoose ending up on top. It all started with a back and forth match with Satoshi taking out one of Zangoose’s pokemon and then Zangoose coming back and taking out Satoshi’s. Finally they were down to one eevee both the score tied at 2-2, when the unimaginable happened, both eevees managed to knock the other one out in a frenzy of swift attacks. leaving the score at 3-3. Then the tournament host chose a pokemon at random, eevee, so that Satoshi and Zangoose could face off in a sudden death round. During this second eevee, battle with the score tied at 3-3, the unimaginable happened yet again with another double knock out! the score was then tied 4-4 and the tournament moved on to the second round of sudden death. The host picked another pokemon at random, the pokemon being gastly. The two trainers fought it out in an intense battle. The matchup was great the determination of both trainers was seen clearly in their battle strategies! The two strongest players of the tournament were clashing heads with great force taking out much damage from each other! And then, with a swift maneuver, and only a hair of health left each, Satoshi and Zangoose both went in for their last attacks! In a split second we would see the victor’s gastly still moving, Zangoose had won the match the score ending at 5-4, an epic battle.

Again and again our collections of thoughts remain devoid of answers, whether they be so simple as to contemplate the colour of the sky or to consult the fundamentals of logistics and automation.
Gather your uncertainties and questions about technical problems or future and current plans for the game or even something stupidly irrelevant, so long as the question can be answered, the ask section is directed towards providing that answer.
Every other week, users can submit their questions in the comments, at random, one will be chosen and featured, alongside an answer.
No questions again this week. If you have questions about the game, or anything really, you can post them in the comments sections or you can send a PM to Dunghallen >>> Forums.planetpokemon.net
