Pokémon GCL Version
Feel free to update it.
Reason given: What happened to this project?
Pokémon GCL Version is a fan project being worked on by the staff of Glitch City Labs. It will be a Pokémon game built from the ground up, and is currently unfinished. It will be coded in Java.
The gameplay of Pokémon GCL Version will be similar to that of the main canon Pokémon games.
Glitches will act differently in this game, as not to delete or damage save files
The specifics are yet to be set down, but the effects of Super Glitch are not going to damage the game in any way. Instead, they will give random status effects. Unpredictable, devastating status effects, but nevertheless, curable.
As the story develops, this will be expanded.
The Legendary Wars
Several years before the start of the game, the world of Pokemon suddenly became a dangerous place. After several economic depressions and a cataclysmic earthquake that separated the countries Kanto and Johto by a new sea, the relationships become understandably strained. When a freighter, determined to cross the border, bulled towards a Johto cruiser at high speeds, it was blown out of the water as the crew panicked. The resulting chain of events set off a massive war, essentially a brawl of countries as all continents battled for control. Near the end of the war, the countries began using the famed Legendary Pokemon, possessing of awesome power, as WMDs. The resulting absolute worldrape convinced them that peace was needed. A treaty was formed- The Allied Continents was born.
One island, a province of Kanto called Heiko, was spared. It grew in population as the economy recovered. This is where the game begins.
The Glitch World and Glitches
Shortly into the game (Heiko isn't too large) you find the Glitch World, a terrifying realm of data and monsters called Glitches, which serve as a more unconventional Pokemon. The hostile environment is attempting to be settled by the Allied Continents, who tout it as the Next Frontier, and charge high fees to enter it. The death-to-entrance rate is 1:3, for now.
The main character. As usual, they will probably be a silent protagonist, and he or she will be good friends with the Professor Yew.
The person who gives the player his or her Pokémon. Also plays a larger role in the story than most of the Professors of the main canon Pokémon games do.
Leader of an army hailing from the Glitch World trying to take control of everything. Made up of the misfits and criminals of the older times, they have willingly sacrificed their bodies and sometimes even minds to strike back at what they see as an oppressive regime. Jacred himself has other motivations, but what they are remain to be seen.
The rival of the protagonist, who will probably show up at various times to battle with him or her. Will be based off of Mugendai in some way.
The first Gym Leader. Will be based off of Missing? NO! in some way.

The Great 8
The Great 8 are eight trainers that must be defeated before the Elite Four can be challenged. They are lined up at the exit of Victory Road, so they are unavoidable. They can only be battled once.
