Update by hacksrepairman

This continued beta is based on the most recent beta that the creator was working on. And thanks to the creator, I learned so much about how the game was supposed to be, so I did my best to finish the rest of the part that the creator didn’t finish. I was able to fully utilize all of the ideas mentioned by the creator. Hopefully, I’ve brought the game closer to its intended state. Unfortunately, there is one thing that differs from the original plans, and that is the Day/Night system, which caused too many glitches and had to be disabled to make the game stable.

Credits to jiangzhengwen for the double battle system fix, thctbm for testing the game, and Fangking Omega for the new tiles.


You are a young man who lives in Goldenrod City. Being a Pokémon Trainer has always been a dream of yours, and it will finally come true on your tenth birthday. Professor G. Oak, a new professor, established his lab in a remote location called Lake Zigger. Your mother has finally agreed to let you get your first Pokémon, a choice of three Fire-type Pokémon, so you board a boat and proceed to Lake Zigger. However, once there, there are a few issues… You’re late, a lost passenger, and a parcel at the Pokémon Mart add to your delay, and you have no idea how to get there in the first place!

You finally make it into the lab and down the stairs. Suddenly, a child arrives to collect HIS Pokémon an entire day early! Someone had came before you and stolen the Charmander, and now this new youngster has stolen Cyndaquil! Torchic is the only Pokémon left, so you should go get it. Suddenly, the child challenges you to a fight, and you decide to leave town. Suddenly, there’s a FLASH, and your Torchic has been changed by an unknown Pokémon, but you had to keep going because the Professor rushed out of the lab right past you.

You run across someone from an organisation you’ve never heard of as you exit Lake Zigger. He was probably dispatched to Lake Zigger to steal that weird Pokémon you have, but he flees after being fought. You had no idea the bad team would go to any length to obtain the Pokémon, including some very un-evil-team-ish actions. Not only that, but there are many more distractions from your Rinto Pokémon League mission than just a bunch of insane folks.

The ability to have many Secret Bases, insane plot twists that even I didn’t see coming, cameo appearances by random people, saving the real world from a disaster (along with the Pokémon world, obviously), some odd times when you just aren’t yourself, and realising the significance of the number 42 are just a few of the crazy things that happen to you on your journey through Rinto.
