Gone are the Pokémon Centers, Shops and Gyms. Gone are the houses, villagers and friendly Professors with angry nephews. It's just you and 386 wild Pokémon. And you're pretty sure someone out there wants you very, very dead.
No, not a game update, a NEWS update! Includes info on Boss Battles and Save Files.

I made a video and wanted to share it with you guys:
So you can see some of the stuff I've been working on.
Bosses can be found typically at the end of a Temple, and they are incredibly strong Pokemon with a different look from the species they're part of. Sometimes they have different stats, different movesets and are generally "special". If you defeat them, they will return after 24 hours (that's in-game hours) - that way you have multiple opportunities to capture them even if they faint in battle.
Next is the save system, which has been slightly modified to include support for multiple save files. The plan is for all future versions of the game to be backwards compatible with older save games, so you don't need to worry about starting a new game every time Survival Island gets updated. You will also be able to share the save files themselves.
For those of you who want to see what's coming in the next update, here's what I'm hoping to add:
- New Battlebacks
- Multiple Save Files
- Boss Battles
- 1 new area to explore (and more pokemon encounters)
- 1 new temple and corresponding boss
- Performance enhancements- More original music
- Fixes to a bunch of bugs
- More items
- More secret things
That's it for this news update, please let me know what you think in the comments! I like having feedback.
