For those of you who are interested in creating and playing Pokémon fangames, Relic Castle is a very active forum that's all about the love of fan-made games! From the Showcase of games that have a complete or substantial playable release, to the Tutorials and Resources section where you can get help on whatever you desire -- be it pixel art or game development tips. There is a thread for sprite feedback, and an ambitious community project to create Hi-Res sprites and backsprites of every Pokémon.

There are also monthly challenges, such as Sprite contests, Game Jams, and awards.

I'm not posting this ad on behalf of anybody in particular, but rather because I'm an active member in this community and I think it would benefit many of the people that follow this group. There are lots of fangame projects right now who are looking for spriters and other team members; the Team Recruitment section is a great way for developers and spriters to connect.

If any of that sounds interesting to you, then I recommend you check it out!

Check out Relic Castle here!

-Submission Rules!-

We have limited submissions to manual approval in order to maintain a standard of quality. For your deviation to get accepted to our gallery, it must follow certain easy-to-meet criteria.

:bulletred: 1. It must be pixel art. The majority of your artwork must be made on a pixel level. You are allowed to make a few touch-ups in programs such as photoshop, but they shouldn't be the subject of your art.

:bulletorange: 2. It must be Pokemon-related, either pixel art of Pokemon/Fakemon or pixel art of other characters in Pokemon style.

:bulletyellow: 3. We are very selective about edited sprites. We prioritize from-scratch pixel art over edited/fused sprites, and do not accept recolors under any circumstances. (Re-vamped Gameboy sprites which include sufficient customization are acceptable.) Fused sprites must demonstrate a degree of editing beyond simple cut and paste. All edited sprites must go to the "Edits" folder.

:bulletgreen: 4. No sprite theft. If you copy or claim somebody else's artwork as your own your deviation, you will be expelled from the group and your deviation will be reported.

Follow these simple rules & you'll do just fine!

:bulletpurple: Happy Spriting! :) :bulletpurple:

Pokemon Primal Version is looking for sprite artists. 

The main task would be to redo fossil sprites to reflect an ancient version of pokemon such as kabuto and give them new typing. 

The game is set back far in time without modern technology such as computers. The region is ruled by 8 different civilizations and various gangs in each route. Basic plot focuses around your character who is the top of the class and won a chance to take a dragon and be a knight for your town and help it. Later you discover your town is tyrannical and you must convince your rival to team up with you and fight against it along with other exiled members. 

We have some parts of a team but many of them have little time for the project. The game has attracted the plot and team maker of Pokemon Zeta/Omnicron and he is making the plot and pokemon teams for us also. The main help needed is making original sprites. Message me if interested.

While I can't promise anything, pmraptor98 and I have been slowly working with a concept of a Jurassic Park inspired fangame and if you're open to sharing some of our concepts, that might work out.

Working on a fan game but need someone to help me make a fakedex from scratch.  I will provide details about each pokemon and what i want them to look like but there are no visuals of them (you can also shoot some ideas my way, I am pretty accepting).  Also need backsprites done too.  It sounds like a lot of work but if I can pick up a few guys then it could be done pretty quickly.  if you are interested or need more info please email me at or just shoot a message to my deviantart account.  I am planning on putting a lot of work into this game.  It will be great!

Project: Pokemon Infinite Emerald.
I'm trying to create a group for my Pokémon Fan-game.

I'm looking Mappers and Sprites Breeders for this project.

The game will discusses about Multiverse, the inspiration came from the Multiverse Theory Pokémon, and Xenoverse game.

In history, a new team called Blackhole kidnapping is the best Pokemon trainers in the world, no, better said worlds.
But not only that, it seems that something is changing the past of other realities, changing the course of timelines, and everything is pointing to a universe, Heaverse.

Choose your player and travel through the striking events of Pokémon universe and exploring the Multiverse, as new discoveries, new Megas and a method that was previously only possible for Pokémon Kyurem, the Fusion Pokémon.

The game only has a link demo to show the idea of ​​the game.!K59AWDqb!iHf5VvVV…

the game is in Portuguese temporarily, but possibly in the next version, the game will feature the two languages.

(There Sprites to be removed because some only seviram based and it is likely that some did not have to handle the rights, unlike the next Demos, where we only use our Sprites and those who fail to use.)
