Pokemon Regulus is the tentative name of my fakemon project, which has various meanings (Bright Star, Little King, Impure Metal, Basilisk) that coincide very well with the storyline I'm cooking up.

The game takes place in the Tervari region, which is almost as big as Kanto and Johto combined. As a whole, Tervari isn't as developed as urbanized regions such as Unova or Kalos, but makes it up with more diverse cultures and interesting folklore, as well as never-before-seen Pokemon that are not found in other regions.

Plot so far:
You start out in Luxuria Suburbs as a teenager who, along with your two childhood friends Kathryn and Devon, idolizes the Tervari Region's emerging peace-enforcing group named Team Aegis. You and your friends go to Luxuria City to participate in a pokemon lottery sponsored by Team Aegis. But on the way, you bump on somebody who's in a hurry who dropped a lottery ticket, and by some weird twist of fate (yeah riiight), you win the grand prize: three pokemon! You and your friends divide the spoils, pick a starter pokemon amongst yourselves, and strive to join Team Aegis! And thus your adventure begins!

Features:
New region, new characters, regional dex composed entirely of fakemons, you know the drill. However, the storyline is what I'm interested in developing. More interaction, more fleshed-out characters, a gameplot that unfolds differently depending on your choices, kickass folklore, and a possible love interest of sorts developing postgame is what I'm hoping to incorporate in this project.

Introducing the Map of Tervari!

The Tervari Region
Disambiguation: Terra[land, ground, earth] + Varietas[variety, diversity, difference]
Can be translated as "Diverse Land" or "Land of Different People and Places".
Tervari is a very big and diverse region, taking up two map screens (a la Kanto x Johto), however it is divided into a north sub-region and a south sub-region. (If we base on the ds emulator, each screen can show one sub-region)

North Tervari is basically composed of highlands such as a tundra area, a plateau, a mountain range and the pokemon world's highest mountain, the Mountain of Creation, where the region's Creator is said to reside. Compared to South Tervari, the north is more rural, but is rich in tradition and folklore. It features a city composed of treehouses (a la Fortree City) which has the Tree of Knowledge in its core (a humongous Library Treehouse) and a japanese-themed city that is dubbed 'The First Hamlet of Tervari' which is now the most populated area in the region(and possibly the world), taking up a whole plateau in size and housing 3(!) gyms. Three rivers flow from the northern part of North Tervari to the largest lake in the world, the Great Basin, which is rumored to have great secrets within. It is surrounded by a peculiar mountain range formation which makes it look like a literal basin. On the Southeast part is Ash Mountain, an active volcano which spews ash more often than lava. On the southwest is Rune Desert, a desert that was said to be a city that got pulverized when a powerful pokemon rampaged.

South Tervari is mostly urbanized, and is split into east and west by the Tervari Canyon, which stems from the mountains that hold the Great Basin. The long coastline of South Tervari is made up of white sandy beaches, stretching from west to east. On the sea are some islands accessible by boat. Most notable are the Red Feather Island, Yellow Feather Island and Blue Feather Island, in which 3 ancient lighthouses stand. These lighthouses are said to be pokemon-made, and as to why pokemon built them is currently unknown. Local folklore states that Legendary Pokemon sleep within each island.

Formerly in the eastern coast of South Tervari, the Pokemon League is now situated at the center of the subregion, directly at the end of the Tervari Canyon.
The left one is how it looks overall, while the right one is when adding all the map details. The borders indicate how it looks like when divided by the ds screens. Yes, it's a two-part map that goes north-south, kinda like east-west for Kanto-Johto.:) It's a map that houses 12 gyms, and along with the Elite 4 and 1 Champion means that it has all Gen V types covered (17).

Gym Leaders
The Tervari Region originally housed 8 Pokemon Gyms. However, due to the integration of the Tervari Hamlet's Gym Leader into the Elite Four, as well as the recent development of Luxuria City and Arcavis Town's gyms, the number of Pokemon Gyms bumped up to 12 with 13 Gym Leaders governing them over the past few years. With no clear successor to Tervari Hamlet's Gym, 3 other Gyms feuding over who shall get the title rose to the occasion, all of which are acknowledged, resulting in Tervari Hamlet having 3 Pokemon Gyms.

The Pokemon League
With the former Champion retiring to pursue a different career, the Pokemon League recently reorganized and relocated from the foot of Ash Mountain to the mouth of the Tervari Canyon. One of the Elite Four succeeded the Champion's place, while a gym leader was integrated into the Elite Four.

Steel Champion: Valeria (F): Adorned with a winged coronet. Uses a balanced team with varying types, but her strongest is Steel-type.
The ordering of the E4 types are opposite of the gym leader types' principle:

Team Aegis

The grunts basically use normal, fighting, and dark pokemon. However, their leaders use different types.

Awesome to have you here Magistrum. No Cawmodore tough?
@[email protected] Whoa you know Cawmodore!!!

Well since my Cawmodore is the winning design of Smogon's 6th Create-a-Pokemon project for gen 5, unfortunately I won't use him to prevent discrepancies. If I want to use him I have to use every detail like stats, abilities, and movepool that the Smogon community decided upon, some of which I don't like (especially Volt Absorb lol).

Excellent concept!!! :) I love it, can't wait to see more!
Thank you Luispipe8 :)

Well since I'm here anyway, I'll show a WIP I'm doing. It's a Pokemon with multiple branch evolutions (a la Eevee) which is based on humanoid shamanic priestesses. Presenting Cosmica, Solarica, Lunarica, Stellarica, and Gravica!

(Cosmica looks like Ralts though, but whatever lol)

Youe read my mind, it's pretty similar. :p But i like it, I just would have given another color to show that it has multiple evolutions, like a fusion of Orange(sun), Silver(moon), Gold(stars) and... I don't know what the other is. XD But you get the point.

Edit: Nevermind, it's gravity, so also Black. :p

I love this project so far! Keep working as hard as you are and someday you'll be given the honor of your region being a real one! (Well, maybe not really, but I love this so I love you :D)

You read my mind, it's pretty similar. :p But i like it, I just would have given another color to show that it has multiple evolutions, like a fusion of Orange(sun), Silver(moon), Gold(stars) and... I don't know what the other is. XD But you get the point.
Edit: Nevermind, it's gravity, so also Black. :p
Yes of course it'll get different color palettes between the branch evos :) I patterned the concept after eeveelutions after all.

I love this project so far! Keep working as hard as you are and someday you'll be given the honor of your region being a real one! (Well, maybe not really, but I love this so I love you :D)
Thanks GoobieDoob! Well I currently have about 110+ fakemon ideas written/154, so yeah I can only hope to draw as fast as I could think lol. But yeah, someday I could input all these data into a fangame eventually :3

Very nice, I also love your style for your Fakemon. Keep it up and I can't wait for more!
Thanks Blui! :) I find it hard to adapt Sugimori-style coloring though; my own style tends to surface everytime lol. Valthena is a close one, but not there yet.

Also I updated the 1st post with Gym Leader, Pokemon League and Team Aegis data [No artworks yet though] :p

If it wasn't on here, I probably could have mistaken it for a new region; everything's so detailed and well thought out! The Fakemon so far also look really realistic and the details are amazing! This'll be one I'll be keeping my eye(s) on, keep it up :)

Just a heads up on the E4 & Champion: Steel does NOT resist Water. It does normal damage to it.

Ah thanks! I have 137/154 Pokemon written out, so just 17 Pokemon to go until I start to draw them all. Whew!

Lol no I think you misunderstood.
The ordering of the E4 types are opposite of the gym leader types' principle:
Water> Rock> Ice> Dragon
The Champion's primary typing (Steel) resists the last E4's typing.
I meant the last E4's typing, Dragon, is resisted by Steel.

I got a spritedex template prepared beforehand BTW:

(And yes I intend to add fairy-type as well)

Oh, I see what you did there... XD Pretty clever, to be honest!

Nice Idea. I like how you put the backstory why the 7th gym has 3 leader fighting over it. Really like your background concept. Can't wait to see more pokemon

Wait a minute, so what are the gyms types in order? I was just wondering XD (and Elite Four preferably).
It was added in the OP as an update, along with Team Aegis data. Here are the gym leader and pokemon league typings for your convenience:
The Gym typings were arranged in such a way that the typing is weak to the next gym's:
Normal <Fighting <Flying <Electric <Ground <Grass <Poison <Psychic <Ghost <Dark <Bug <Fire.
The ordering of the E4 types are opposite of the gym leader types' principle:
Water> Rock> Ice> Dragon
The Champion's primary typing (Steel) resists the last E4's typing.
Also I have something else prepared for Fairy-type.

Ah yes I've completed my pokemon data, but the drawings kinda fell behind my ideas lol. I could at least tease you with typings and names at the moment:

Notes:
*These aren't the final sprites; just some placeholders for what I've drawn so far.
**Pokemon #100, Preciore, has two forms that have different typings: Sardonyx Forme (Dragon/Rock) and Turquoise Forme (Dragon/Ice)
Dex Count: 154
Mono types: 62
Dual types: 92
Legends: 11/154

Here's the tentative look on the Tervari Gyms' Badges:

First row: Gem Badge, Skill Badge, Soaring Badge, Surge Badge, Fossil Badge, Sprout Badge
Second row: Toxin Badge, Grace Badge, Forlorn Badge, Blade Badge, Shed Badge, Magma Badge

Critique is very much appreciated!

I'll be perfectly honest, there's nothing I can fault with this! The badge designs are really creative and suit the badge themes really nicely :D Keep it up!

Thanks Lemonnade!

So since I got a spritedex template done, I went ahead and made a fakedex template as well lol

Maybe I'll replace the OP's fakemon images with these so that it isn't too cluttered with walls of text haha

Here's another Fakemon, which is a testament of how I suck at Sugimori Style lol
