explorers of hell
by babou on his server
Hi everyone here is some news about Pokemon Mystery Dungeon : Explorers of Hell. The game is progressing very well, the release could be around September.
The Fairy type and the new weaknesses to the steel type from the 6th generation have been added.
New Pokemon : Arceus, Vulpix Alola (starter), Ninetales Alola and Sylveon.
Some pokemon will be able to appear shiny and will be recruitable. They will be available on a single floor of some dungeons. There are 10 : Umbreon, Metagross, Gardevoir, Charizard, Sableye, Flygon, Luxray, Milotic, Magikarp, Gyarados.
The effect of some attacks has been changed. For example, Air Slash hits the whole room, Knock Off deals damage, Howl affects all allies, and many other changes and adjustments.
The purchase and sale prices of some items have been changed. For example, the Reviver Seed will cost 1200 instead of 800.
In some dungeons, if a Pokemon knocks out one of your allies, it will evolve.
You will be able to freely change your starter after the personality quiz if you don't like it.
A lot of other new features are coming, to follow all this, go to the server

- emmuffin#2837 shared her commision sheet
While I'm here, and paid work is a serious subject, I'll also put older commition sheet :
Extra notes: - Portraits for a Pokemon with an existing Normal portrait are $12 each. - Giving an existing Pokemon the full set of animations a normal starter has would be around $300. This includes all 22 animations, offsets, and the xml file. It's a lot of work! - Questions? Feel free to message me
