v1.0.19

Steam Logo.png April 15th, 2022

This update contains some significant PvP improvements and lots of QoL updates, besides the usual bug fixes.

Changes

  • When your match rules use the “set to level 50” rule, all Coromon in online battles will have the maximum number of Potential points possible. Whether you have a level 1 Standard Toruga, or a level 99 Perfect Swurmy, in online battles they will have the same amount of Potential Points. You can distribute these points in the online menu. If you don’t manually distribute them, the remaining points will be distributed randomly. This will make the competitive scene more accessible for new players, since you no longer have to grind for the perfect team. Of course using your Perfect Coromon in battles will still be the ultimate showoff!
  • To make PvP even more accessible, players can now use a Loan Squad in the online menu. This Loan Squad consists of a set of randomly generated Coromon and held items, which you can regenerate whenever you want, to try out new things! We’ll be tweaking and improving this feature in later updates.
  • Skill Flashes now have infinite uses. If you already used one before the update, you will find it again in your inventory.

v0.1.0

Steam Logo.png Jan 19, 2020

We've received quite some feedback on the low variation in Coromon types. Adding new Coromon types would take quite some resources, but adding more after release of the full game already was, and will remain our goal. To address this feedback until we reach that point, we're introducing Skill Types. We've added six new types, which (for now) can only be found on Skills. This means that we've changed the type of some existing and upcomming skills, to allow for more strategic Squad building and skill selection. Check the updateded Type Manual in-game to see how each of the new types interact with the existing ones.

For Hard or Insane players, we've set up a system which keeps track of all your Coromon that returned to the wild. Should you decide to lower the difficulty to Normal or Easy, your Coromon will return to your Storage. This change is not retroactive, so all Coromon which have currently returned to the wild, will remain there.

  • Added Skill Types, and changed types on a number of skills.
  • Updated visuals for the Power Tower puzzles. We are now using symbols instead of (sometimes hard to differentiate) colors.
  • Lowering difficulty from Hard or Insane will return your lost Coromon (not retroactive).
  • Added signs in front of the labs in the Lux Solis Campus, so that new trainers have less trouble getting around.
  • The flashes after overcharging the fusebox are no longer flashes, but a smooth fade transition.

  • Slight decrease to encounter rates in specific grass patches.
  • Buzzlet can now be encountered in Woodlow Forest as well, and Mino appears more often in Radiant Park.
  • Added sections to the settings menu, and added streamer info there: Game Capture doesn't work well with our engine, but Window Capture or Display Capture works fine.
  • Fixed a number of minor bugs & typos.
