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 person living in Goldenrod City. To be a Pokémon Trainer has always been your dream, and now it’s FINALLY going to come true on your tenth birthday. A new professor, Professor G. Oak, set up his lab in a far-away place called Lake Zigger. Your mom is finally letting you get your first Pokémon, a choice between three Fire-type Pokémon, so you get on a boat and head to Lake Zigger. Once you get there, however, there are a few problems… You’re late, a lost passenger, and a package at the Pokémon Mart delay your arrival at the lab even further, and you have no idea how to get there in the first place!

As you finally make it into the lab, you go down the stairs. Suddenly, some kid comes in to get HIS Pokémon an entire day early! Somebody else had arrived before you and taken the Charmander, and then this new kid steals away Cyndaquil! Torchic is the only Pokémon left now, so you go and take it. Suddenly, the kid challenges you to a battle, after which you proceed to leave town. Suddenly, there’s a FLASH, and your Torchic’s been replaced by some unknown Pokémon, but, seeming as the Professor ran out of the lab right past you, you have to continue.

As you leave Lake Zigger, you encounter somebody from an organization you’d never heard of. Presumably, he was sent to Lake Zigger to steal that strange Pokémon you had, but he runs away after he gets beaten. You didn’t know that the evil team will do anything to get that Pokémon, including some very un-evil-team-ish things. Not only this, there are many more things that will sidetrack you from your Rinto Pokémon League quest than just a bunch of crazy people.

The ability to have many Secret Bases, insane twists in the plot that even I didn’t expect, cameo appearances by random people, saving the real world from a catastrophe (as well as the Pokémon world, obviously), some odd times when you just aren’t yourself, and realizing the importance of the number 42 are a few of the crazy things that happen to you on your journey throughout the region of Rinto.
