Creator Note

This game is supposed to feel more like a personal journey than an arduous challenge, so it’s intended for less competitive-minded players (or those who just need to slow down and smell the flowers a little!), though it’s not meant to be “easy”. This is what I enjoy in a Pokémon game, so I hope this project will reach other people like me.

Take things at your own pace, talk to people and Pokémon to learn more about the region. You never know what you’ll discover! ~LarkyLovesYou

Note: This game is currently in an early beta-release stage and is in great need of playtesters!

Pokémon Lark is a solo passion project I’ve been developing off-and-on for the past three years, although this particular version is a complete reboot of the last one (which is why it’s still in early development). There will be a link to an optional post-playtest survey located in the game’s main folder (hosted via Google Forms)- filling it out would be a great help to both my skills as a developer and my motivation while continuing to work on this project!​

Welcome to the world of Pokémon!

Dive into the serene realm of Regiona, a tranquil peninsula renowned for its unassuming naming customs! Within this land, the inhabitants hold dear their profound connections with Pokémon, be it through battles, contests, or pure companionship. How you traverse and engage with this region is entirely in your hands!

Embark on your journey as a young resident of Stardina Town, an up-and-coming village slightly off the beaten path.

Friendly Faces!

As you make your way through Regiona, you’ll bump into a bunch of quirky folks with plenty to chat about. Expect to cross paths with a pair of feisty twins from the neighboring town who’ll serve as your main rivals. While some showdowns with them are bound to happen, most are totally up to you to seek out (or accidentally skip if you’re not nosing around)!

Meet Liv!​

Liv (short for Olivia) is a reserved, intellectual girl who currently works as the professor’s favorite (and only) assistant. She’ll be in charge of granting you your very first Pokémon, and although she’s not much of a battler, she and her partner Eevee will serve as helpful allies throughout your journey. And maybe, through getting to know you, she’ll find some confidence in herself along the way..?​

Meet Leo!​

Leo (short for Leon) is a quirky, outgoing boy whose goal is to make lots of Pokémon friends on his journey and grow strong together. He and his Deino are quite the tough opponents, but he’s a softie at heart and wants nothing more than to push you to reach your full potential (even if he can be clumsy about it at times). His passion for the well-being of Pokémon is unmatched.​

And… others?

You may also run into some… unsavory characters during your journey.

A new gang is on the rise, calling themselves Team Trouble- and they’re after money, resources, and a mythical Pokémon that’s gone unseen for centuries. Will you fight for the honor of the Pokémon they might harm in the process?

Known Issues

  • Some move animations are off- specifically, certain moves will show their animation in the corner of the screen and not on the Pokémon in question. This appears to be an Essentials issue and not a “me” issue, but I’ll have to look into fixing it.
  • Some time-based events have yet to be playtested, though most of them are optional interactions and shouldn’t interfere with gameplay too much. If there’s something absurdly game or immersion-breaking that I missed, I’ll be sure to patch it out.


“Why is Skitty on the title screen? Is it important?”

“Where does the game get its title?”

“Why do the names of your region/towns suck?”

“How long until the next update / final game / etc?”

“Will there be Fakémon / Regional Forms in this game?”

Future Plans

Long-Term Goals

  • 8 Full Gyms, Elite 4, and Champion, all with custom sprites and unique interactions outside of battle.
    • Before battling a Gym Leader, they will be in their Gym at all times (unless a specific interaction is required to unlock their Gym Fight).​
    • After defeating a Gym Leader, they will be placed on a schedule for unique interactions. This schedule may change throughout the game, depending on how many badges the player has obtained.​
    • There will be at least one opportunity to rematch each Gym Leader before the postgame. These casual rematches are done outside the League’s jurisdiction, and as such, they are not locked to a single type.​
    • After completing the main story, players will be able to rematch each Gym Leader at their full strength.​
  • Full storyline involving Team Trouble and their shenanigans.​
  • A few interactions and battles locked behind the postgame.​
  • Mega Evolution! Late-game bosses and postgame rematches will include Mega Evolved Pokémon, and the player will be able to unlock Mega Evolution as well (though the question of “when” is still undecided).​

Short-Term (Next Game Version) Goals

An additional city, including 1 Gym Leader & her timed events.

  • The new city will be much larger than Fergem, as it’s one of the larger locations in the game.​

The remainder of Token Tunnel, as well as the other half of Route 4​Routes 5, 6, and 8. Potentially part of Route 9 (including the Daycare) also.

  • Route 6 will include several battles against Team Trouble. This is the first time players will see the bad guys.​
  • More Pokémon to obtain in the new routes.​

Some post-gym content, primarily backtracking.​

New timed events for the rivals, which will be locked behind the second Gym Badge.​A couple of new trainer classes, which I’ll probably also release as a free resource.

  • I already have the data for them in the game, they’re just not able to be encountered yet.​

Obtain a Fishing Rod! Because that’s what everybody wants in their Pokémon game! Fishing!​
