In a war-torn nation, you’ll take on your most important call — to unite the Oracles against a force greater than the world has ever seen.

For centuries, the Council of Oracles has been the stalwart guardian of peace in the sprawling region of Hawthorne. Its inception followed a momentous war, marked by a revolution that successfully toppled a tyrannical king, paving the way for an era of tranquility orchestrated by the wise Oracles. Yet, whispers of discontent have grown louder, with a growing sentiment that the Oracles, once revered for their governance, have become complacent and distant from the pulse of the people.

In this climate of uncertainty, a formidable challenge arises from a family led by a charismatic figure who boldly assumes the title of “King.” This self-proclaimed monarch asserts a lineage steeped in Royal Blood, claiming to be the legitimate heir to the throne and harboring ambitions to unite the diverse factions within Hawthorne. The Royal Family envisions a grand future for the region, aspiring to elevate it into a formidable force among the greater nations that surround it.

Despite the shadow cast by the oppressive history of the distant past, a groundswell of support is steadily coalescing around the Royal Family. People, drawn to the promise of unity and prosperity, are beginning to rally to their cause. Now, the moment has arrived for the venerable High Oracle Anastasia to muster her Council, rekindle the flame of their authority, and firmly grasp the reins of peace that have slipped through their fingers. The alternative is to risk being consigned to the annals of history, where the pages of unrest may once again unfurl, shaping the destiny of Hawthorne anew.


  • Choice Determined Gameplay: The decisions you make during the main quest and side-quests will have various outcomes. Rarely is it ever a simple choice between good and bad – in a morally grey world there is never an easy answer.
  • Character Customisation: Change your outfit and your skin tone to resemble the hero you want to play as. Unlock new outfits as you play, and mix and match clothing! You’re the hero, express your individuality.
  • Skill Trees: Skills trees allow you to unlock “talents”. You achieve talent points as you play. You can spend them on new perks to suit your play style. Trinita University will help you unlock more skills!
  • Quest System: You will encounter people who are in need of your help. They may not be on the path of your main adventure but each one holds a story. Track quests using your journal and choose to help them – or not!
  • Multiple Save Files: Whether you’re making different decisions in this playthrough or simply want to choose a different starter Pokémon this time around – you’ll be able to do so without deleting your previous saves!
  • PokeStrap: The PokéStrap is a key item you receive during your adventure. Packed with useful applications and utilities – it should surely help you during your adventure. You can always toggle it on or off if you wish to!

Let’s Play Mode

Something we always wanted to deliver for Phoenix Rising is a full PC game experience. As a team, we’ve all played fan games and loved them. However there was a common theme throughout, and that was a small screen that takes up a small amount of your monitor. So this is our answer, a whole new full-screen option we name the “Let’s Play Mode”!

The mode was inspired by Let’s Players who take advantage of the entire screen with elements such as current Pokémon in their party, current location, and so on. We decided we would do something similar. The Let’s Play Mode or “LP Mode” for short, has several features. In the center, you have your game screen. So the action is always right in front of you. To each side of your game screen, there are multiple GUI elements that aid you in your game, you can see your Party and their current health and status, your registered items and what button each of them is mapped to, your region map, and where you’re currently located, and plenty more.

Relic Forms

Interwoven in the tension between Oracles, the Royal Family, and indeed the inhabitants of Hawthorne, is the mysterious appearance of these alternative Pokémon forms. Even stranger is that so-called “Relic Pokémon” are quite rare compared to their more well-documented base forms which are still found in the wild.

Having only appeared recently, nobody seems sure where they have come from or why. There are whispers that link them back to Ho-oh, and the war that ravaged Hawthorne so many years past…
