    What’s the best Pokémon kit that includes all necessary scripting in place? What’s the best software to make an RPG with such a programming kit? I’m talking it should have monster catching, battling, and storage already ready to go so I just have to draw my monsters. This is NOT for a Pokémon fan game. It’s a totally different RPG in which you can catch enemies, which has also been done in DragonQuest, Persona 5, and more. So it’s not the Essentials kit I’m looking for. I’ve found some plugins but really don’t know where to begin. I’m also looking for plugins for Zelda-style puzzle dungeons and a farming mechanism like Stardew Valley.

    lol


    uhhh I guess your easiest route would be RPG maker,
    try this:

    I'm also thinking you're on the wrong forum,
    but IF you're interested in learning game maker (and have the patience for it), there are lots of a cool pokemon-type tutorials. But it'll have to be step-by-step and will probably take a while.

    here’s one made in Game Maker studio: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=449371237&insideModal=1

    I’d like an informed opinion about whether or not it’s any good before I get started with it.

    None so far, but I'm working on a GMS2 project which will basically have every feature present in gen1 Pokémon. I'm working on the last few GUI elements right now and after that it'll just need some example content (picking starting monster, some example trainers, an actual area to explore...). I can't say when it'll release, but keep your eyes peeled (follow my social media and stuff to get devlogs and advertisement spam for new releases~)

    It's available on this page, and it's finally released now!


    Here's some WIP GIFs:

    This SoulsVania thing is cool but it’s not from a top-down perspective, can I change that easily?

    I’m going to follow your Pokémon progress. What’s your social media link?

    That looks cool, Yal.

    I myself am currently working on a gen I Pokémon-style RPG, but I haven't yet decided if I'll be doing it in GameMaker or writing it from scratch in assembly language for the Game Boy. (I've dabbled in assembly language and would like to try a serious project, but I'm afraid if I do that then the game will never get finished. Assembly language is hard! Maybe I'll start smaller and work my way up, lol. I suppose I could make the game in GameMaker for now, and then rewrite it in ASM once I'm more experienced...)

    If you're still interested, I've finished up and released my engine: https://yaru.itch.io/monster-collector-engine

    You'll still need some scripting (e.g. open up scripts to add in new monster / move data) but a lot of features like trainer monster data and NPC dialogue can be handled using the GUI "variables" window.
