The game you are trying to view has ceased development and consequently been archived. If you are a member of this game, can demonstrate that it is being actively developed and will be able to keep this profile up to date with the latest news, images, videos and downloads, please contact us with all details and we will consider its re-activation.

Pokémon: Generations is a free, unofficial, 3D Action/Adventure/RPG heavily inspired by both the Pokemon Anime & the Pokemon Video Games. The game will contain both single and multiplayer aspects, along with a story bridging the gap between RBY & GSC.

As progress continues, updates will be available on the game's launcher. If you're interested in helping the project, please note that we're only interested for asset gatherers/creators, however all support is both greatly appreciated and highly motivating, and we're grateful for it.

We'll be updating this page regularly with news, patches, and media, but if you really want to stay in the loop, we suggest that you join our forums.

Also, Mac users can find ports of the latest versions at this link. You'll have to use StuffitExpander in order to extract the contents, but you should be able to play from there.

Yo! So as we're getting back in the swing of things, I've noticed what tends to gobble up a lot of the team's time - animating. We're looking to primarily cover the Kanto region here, so that's 151 Pokemon to have fully animated and put in-game. The putting in-game part I can do, but the animations on the other hand... well, we'd like some help.

I've gotten loads of requests for positions on this front, so I know a handful of you are interested, and that's perfectly fine! We're essentially looking for some folks who can take a single Pokemon, rig it, and animate it. Should you be chosen, either Skatter, Zielan, or myself will send you a list containing ALL animations required for said Pokemon, along with descriptions for the majority explaining what we expect to see. You'd be looking at about 1000 frames worth of animation, spreading across roughly 60-80 individual animations.

After some discussion with the team, it looks like there will be an average of 60 animations per Pokemon. Note that these are ALL animations that each Pokemon will use, so once it's done, it's done. This includes every move available to them, not just four. I'm pointing this out because I want everyone to be clear on the amount of work it'll require.

Now we're only looking for people seriously interested in helping out by doing the following:

  1. Can work well with the animation tools provided in either Maya, Blender or 3DS Max.
  2. Knows how to rig using either bones or bipeds.
  3. Has a decent understanding of IK chains and morph targets (optional).
  4. Can improve/edit models to fit rigging needs if necessary.
  5. Can complete at least one assigned Pokemon within a month.
  6. Can accept and apply constructive criticism from either the forums or IRC, or both.

Nothing too major here, but we'd truly only like those who can commit to a specific Pokemon and deliver with the same quality matched by the ones currently in games. To be sure of this, we're asking that anybody who's interested email pokegentokes@gmail.com with an example of their capabilities. be it a simple clip of animation or a full-fledged demo reel.

If you're accepted, you will be emailed back inquiring as to which Pokemon you'd like to animate, what we have available, how fast you can do it, and the animations required. Apologies for the formalities, but I just want to be clear that we're taking this semi-seriously, so only email if you are certain you can meet the demands of the project.We'll do our best to answer any questions you may have either on Mod DB or the forums (wherever you're reading this). Hopefully with your guys' help, we can make the best Pokemon fan-game to date! Happy animating!

UPDATE:
Glad to see so many responses so far! We've started responding to the folks that reached out, so expect an email soon if we're interested in your skills!

One thing I ask from future applicants is that you submit your examples of animation as a YouTube video. Unfortunately, we won't be responding to you unless you have an example of work that meets the standards we're looking for. Lucky for you, that's not too high a bar to reach at all!

Anyhow, thank you to all that are helping out. It's a daunting task, but we'll get there eventually!

PS: If you're looking to send your example a little more personally, feel free to hop onto the PokeGen IRC and we'll take a look.

Whats with that "This is intended" thing after the reseting thing? do you you actually want us to reset after all that or just a bug? Also what do you mean with "prior to capturing or sending out pokemon" do we need to reset everytime we capture or send out??? or before??? im not getting it

It means that some things changed between the last update and this one, and you need to reset your party data, else the game thinks you have a full party but you are unable to do anything.

ONCE you reset, everything should work as normal.

Greets,

Just joined IndieDb to add my thanks and encouragement, amongst the many others, for realizing an action-based PkMn game.

Plays nicely so far and the meshes/textures look great, my only constructive criticism as of now is regarding the camera in some areas. Possibly allowing the camera to zoom out further could help a little in crowded areas, such as the treeline by the lake, where I sometimes lose track of a battle. :p

Although I have only played single player, I can envision this being a good laugh if I can convince a friend or two to give it a look.

Also.. what on earth did you feed to that Rattata?!? That thing is a demon.
*Quickattack Quickattack Quickattack Quickattack Quickattack*
Aforementioned Rattata is also pretty pro at deflecting ranged attacks with tail whip. ^_^

I won't be blurting out belligerent demands for new features, I'd just like to thank you muchly for what is here already. I will appreciate watching this project progress. :)
