We are working hard on the battle prototype which will essentially be a test to see how

battling will work in the alpha. To go further into detail, the battle demo will test the different

types of moves that pokemon can use in the game, these move types are categorized by their

function. The goal of the prototype is to test each attack type. We are also currently discussing

the day/night cycle, hopefully we’ll have more to report on that in the next issue. We’ve also a

few animations done for some of the pokemon

Ask Section

by Shadow

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


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.

There have been no questions for this issue, please check back here next time.

Do you think you know the pre­alpha like the back of your hand? If so, step right up and

test your knowledge! This is the Spot in Town section, a section in which a screenshot of

somewhere in­game will be posted, and it’ll be up to you to take a screenshot of my location!

The first person to get it correct has their name featured in the next newsletter. Speaking of

No new quizzes or jokes this week, sorry.

Pre­Alpha Tips

by dragontrainer

When playing the Pre­Alpha, there are things that not many people know are possible to

do, or just completely pass over. This article segment is for all sorts of tips and hints to broaden

your play in the Pre­Alpha. We will be featuring a few of these tips per article, so if you want to

learn some secrets of the Pre­Alpha, this is where to look.

Tip #1.) If you collect the clovers and/or coins with your Pokemon you have a chance of

getting double rewards.

Tip #2.) If you stand by a clover and another person collects it while you are close, there

is a chance that he will share the clover with you.

Well that’s all for now. Check this section again in our next newsletter for more hints and

tips. See Ya!
