Pokémon RMN Version is a collaborative Pokémon fan game developed with the Pokémon Essentials script engine for RPG Maker XP. It is the result of a creative event where members of the RMN community and abroad would create, design, and refine their very own Pokémon to feature in the game. Up to twenty-five members had their submissions accepted, and they've all contributed to a roster of 151* Pokémon for players to catch and train!
*There could be more...

The game features a brand new region to explore, exclusive to the RMN-made Pokémon contributed by our members, and with the power of the Pokémon Essentials engine, you'll experience this game in a way that's reminiscent of the handheld games!


Far away from familiar lands in the Pokémon world, lying South of the Inday Region and West of the Moddin Region, there exists the isolated island of Ahremin. The Ahremin region is known for it's rich history, including tales of a monstrous beast who once threatened to devour the world; it contains bizarre landscapes, including the mysterious ruins of a lost civilization and the outright befuddling Ultimate Warp Zone. The most fascinating aspect of Ahremin, however, is its Pokémon species, all of which are found nowhere else in the world.

After recently moving into the region, a curious, ambitious teenager wishes to explore Ahremin to its fullest; discovering, befriending, and training its Pokémon with the hopes of becoming champion of the Ahremin Pokémon League. This teen is the child of the world-famous Pokemon Trainer Andreas, who runs the gym at Misao City. With a reputation to keep up with and a dream to fulfill, the teen accepts the Trainer's License and embarks on a journey that will test his/her endurance.

Will he/she make a mark on this strange new world? Does he/she have what it takes to become the Ahremin region’s champion? This teen is you, in case you haven't figured that out, so what will you decide?

A wild developer (finally) appears!

Hey, long time no see! :)

So, college and general adult life has proven to be about as troublesome to progress as you'd expect. A lot has happened this past year, stuff that I won't get into here, but I wanted to pop in to address something.

Progress might be going slow, but it is happening. During the time since I've taken over development, I've become far too emotionally (and financially) invested in Pokemon RMN to ever think of stepping away. I just wanted to re-ensure anyone who keeps an eye on the project that progress is still being made, and I have no intention of that changing.

With all that said, there are a few things I'm hoping to gather feedback on regarding the future of the project...

1. In lieu of some recent events, I'm starting to think it may be a good idea to start distancing the project form the Pokemon brand. By this, I mostly just mean changing assets (and possibly name, down the line) that directly come from Pokemon. This does open the doors to some interesting new environments in which the game could take place. I've toyed around with the idea of a Pokemon game set in a medieval-fantasy setting before, could be interesting. Eitherway, this would mostly just be a cosmetic change, and wouldn't affect gameplay.

2. Probably the more pressing of the two. I'd like to gauge what the opinion is on making changes to some of the Pokemon themselves. Since I've started developing, I've had a dozen or so people critique the game for me. I had them take notes while playing through the game thus far, and for those who wanted to (a bit over half of them), I set them loose on the wiki to give their thoughts on each Pokemon. It was really interesting (and fun :) ) seeing how they responded to each Pokemon's design and stats. What I did notice, though, is that there was certain things would be brought up by nearly all of them. Here's my dilemma, from a developer's sense, I feel I should address these points that were regularly brought up, but on the other hand, I'm a bit apprehensive to make changes, given the history of the project.

But with all that out of the way, I'm hoping to finally start being more active around here, like I had wanted to all this time. Hope things are going well for everyone. :)

I forgot to mention that I redid the logo for this project, as you can see. I thought the old one was a little bit wonky and I wanted something that represented RMN a little more.

Aside from that, I put up the character page and the game mechanics page as well, for those who are interested. The other pages that are coming soon are:

- The Region starters
- Full Roster of Pokemon and their creators
- The Gym Leaders (or I could just add that to the "Main Characters" page)
- Map of the region

... and anything else that I might remember that I need to show.
Nice to see this project is still going. I eagerly anticipate a demo within a year, or two.

Prof. Bick is pretty much my own self-insert in this game, mainly because I felt a bit like the "Pokemon guru" of RMN during the event, and the role of a region professor isn't as pretentious as a gym leader or champion. His first name is spelled out from the first letter of my name ("J") and his last name is the first four letters of my last (Bickelmann). His personality is not related to mine at all, by the way.

It's actually done! I'm putting together a little Fakemon Card style image that would show the sprites for everyone in the roster, so you'll see it soon (hopefully).

Nope, I would dare do that to your awesome guitar Pokemon.

Nope, I wouldn't dare do that to your awesome guitar Pokemon.

Ok good, do I need to do more for the game to be listed as a dev? :P

Lol. It's up to you. You can check the blog post I made to see if you want to help out in mapping/animations or whatnot.

‘Bout time! I was wondering when you were going to make a game page for this.

I haven’t played a traditionalized Pokeymons game since the good ol’ days of Silver and Gold for the Gameboy Color many, many moons ago, so I wouldn’t mind playing something like this whenever you manage to fully complete it. I know it isn’t technically the same, but it’s still a Pokeymons game, god damn it – and I wantz to play!

I shall be giving this a subscribe and lurking around the tall grass for now.
