Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight are the latest titles in the Pokemon franchise, and serve as the start-up games in the newest generation, generation VII. These titles are being developed by Illusion Works and Nintendo through a partnership with Game Freak. It is planned to be released on October 31, 2016 worldwide (similar to Pokemon X and Pokemon Y) onto the New Nintendo 3DS physically and digitally. It intentionally releases on the same day as the national holiday, Halloween. A port to the Tropicon console has also been confirmed by the company.
The game is set in the Fyeno region, which is somewhat based on the continent "Indonesia" in style and design. Following the previous generation, the game comes with seven languages: English, Japanese, Korean, German, Italian, Spanish and French. Despite this, two new languages were added to the menu: Portuguese and Arabic, creating a total of nine languages.
It has been hinted at that Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight will show links to the older generations of Pokémon, and have much more challenging battles than the previous generation, which made it considerably easier for newer players.
The game received two sequels, titled Pokémon Daybreak² and Pokémon Twilight².
To be finalized.
Another generation of Pokémon to explore!
Over 120 brand new Pokémon to raise as your own!
The mythical and magical Arcane type!
Jumping and Crouching!
All of this in the Sanctuary known as the Fyeno region!
The vast majority of the game play in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight remains the same compared to the previous generation, generation VI. However, there are some changes to the game play to make the game more accessible and less of a struggle for some players who found certain elements in the previous generation arduous.
The game's engine has been slightly modified from the previous sixth generation engine, and has higher performance and wider range of different graphics to make the game more visually appealing.
Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight introduce the nineteenth Pokémon typing, Arcane. Arcane type is for Pokémon that have magical connections tied to them. For example, the mythical Pokémon Celebi is re-typed as a Fairy/Arcane type in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight instead of its previous Grass/Psychic typing in other generations.

Soaring in the Sky
Soaring in the Sky returns in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight but in a much more viable format. Any Pokémon that could previously learn Fly can now Soar in the Sky. Also, any Pokémon that is part Flying type can now posses the ability to soar too (considering in theory Ghost types are easily able to levitate and hold their weight and Arcane types are capable of using Magic to possess the ability to fly).
However you have to receive an item called the "PokéWhistle" before being able to do this. This allows Pokemon like Scyther and Gengar, who previously were not able to Soar in the Sky. Below is a list of eligible Pokemon now able to use this mechanic.
Jumping and Crouching
One of the goals of Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight was to make the game a lot more realistic in terms of game play, so the mechanics of Jumping and Crouching were added. Using the ZR button on the New Nintendo 3DS console, the player can jump. Similarly, using the ZL button allows the player to crouch.
Mega Evolution returns in the same format as previous Generations, however it is a lot harder to obtain Mega Stones in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight, as they have become rare artifacts and worth a lot of money. Also, only one copy of each Mega Stone exists, making them a lot harder in lore to receive.
Transportation has been completely rejuvenated for Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight. The player has the Running Shoes from the beginning, and acquires the Bike pretty quickly in the game. However there are also many other methods of transportation that are new in the game, such as the Skateboard and Surfboard which are easily customized by the player.
Later on in the game, the player can travel around the region through portals in Pokemon Centers.
There are an abundant collection of moves added in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight. The inclusion of most of the moves is to make the game more fair by adding more powerful moves for the certain types that need them, and that were previously disadvantaged. Also to extend the move pools of Pokemon that have weaker move sets available to them such as Flareon. They are sorted by alphabetical order of typing.

The Hidden Machine (or HM) system was completely reworked in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight after several controversial issues with Hidden Machines taking up so much space in an ideal move pool were made. The system changed, and now each Pokemon can have five moves, four normal moves for none Hidden Machine moves and one Hidden Machine slot, specifically for Hidden Machine moves. Pokemon can still have Hidden Machines in their normal four moves, but also have that extra slot so using Hidden Machines is easier.
The viable Hidden Machine list in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight has been completely re-adjusted for Generation VII, and includes previously Technical Machine moves now as Hidden Machine moves as they have significant usage.
|HM01. Ignite||Ignite can be used to melt frozen objects, it also can be used to destroy any tree that stands in the path of the trainer.|
|HM02. Strength||Retyped to Fighting|
|HM03. Dazzling Gleam||Dazzling Gleam can be used in dark tunes like Flash, however you can also use it to blind trainers you don't wish to battle, however there is a limit to how many times you can do this. It can also help reveal items like a Dowsing Machine would, therefore replacing that item's use.|
|HM05. Frost Breath||Frost Breath is used to freeze water, so you can climb waterfalls and other places that have water. This helps you to get items as you can have layers of ice which you have to place accordingly to receive items.|
|HM06. Dream Eater||Dream Eater is used in the over world as there are sleeping people and Pokemon around the place and it is a mechanic in the game to wake them all up. It can also lead to gift Pokemon and other items being given to you.|
Technical Machines (or TMs) return in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight in the same role that they always have taken in the franchise. They are moves that you can teach to a Pokemon if they have met the requirements that the move has.
TM01. Hone Claws
|PokeWhistle||Enables Soaring in the Sky|
|Spiritualist||If Ghost type, the Pokemon will live on even if KO'd. Only occurs once per battle.|
In Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight, along with short overviews of the story in a badge by badge fashion.
You take the position of a teenage boy or girl and begin your adventure in Talonmore City, a bustling city filled with business men and women who work for a living. You have always been interested in becoming a Pokemon Trainer, however your Father disagrees. Whenever you have spare time, you spend it doing errands for Professor Aspen, the local Pokemon Professor of the Fyeno Region. However your dad found out, and banned you from talking to him anymore.
It is the day of your 15th birthday, and once your father has left for work you immediately go to Professor Aspen after receiving an email from him the previous day asking you to visit him soon. You enter his lab and the place is in ruins. Books are scattered everywhere, there is also a note on the ground which you pick up, stating:
"(Player), I've left three Pokemon here in the lab, I want you to pick one of them and begin your Pokemon journey! Please make sure everything is okay with your family before leaving~"
You pick your starter Pokemon, and then leave the lab. Suddenly you hear someone being attacked by a Pokemon and run into Route 01. It appears to be your dad, and he is being attacked by a wild Frafre. You defeat the Pokemon and save your dad, thus convincing him that you need to go on a journey, even if he may not strictly approve of it. He then tells you he has a gift for you, and he gives your Pokemon either Grass Pledge, Water Pledge or Fire Pledge based on its primary typing.
You assume that saving your Father is as good as getting authorization, and you leave your home to begin your Pokemon journey. However, once you leave the door your father exits as well. He states that you should try and meet up with your sibling in the next town and talk to each other once again. He also advises you to check out a place in the town that is secluded, but you would have to find it.
After searching around Talonmore City, you find a secret passage which was covered by a tree and several bushes to camouflage into the background. You push the bushes to one side and go inside to explore the opened up passage.

Below is a list of characters with biographies and their roles that appear in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight.
- Gretchen (Default female character): Gretchen is a studious overachiever and has been since a young age. Her family moved to the region of Fyeno because her father wanted to pursuit his career of becoming a Pokemon Professor. Inspired by her father, at the age of 15, Gretchen decided to pack in the books and go on an adventure of her own. Even though she may be older than most trainers when they begin their journey, it doesn't mean that Gretchen would be at any disadvantage when it comes to the world of Pokemon, the books have supplemented that experience for her.
- Tyler (Default male character): Tyler is an isolated teen who enjoys playing video games and the like. His family decided to move to the Fyeno region when he was a young boy, because his mother wanted to pursuit her career of becoming a Pokemon Coordinator. Inspired by his mother, at the age of 15, Tyler decided to pack in the video games and go on an adventure of his own in the real world. Even though he may be older than most other trainers when they begin their journey, it doesn't mean that Tyler would be at any disadvantage when it comes to the world of Pokemon.
- Kaitlin (Default male's sister)
- Vaughn (Default female's brother)
- Lolita (Player's main rival)

Kaitlin/Vaughn are one of two main rivals in the game, and they represent the opposing gender of the player. They are the sibling of the player and have already started their journey years ago, and supposedly defeated the Fyeno Pokemon League. They will challenge the player to random battles throughout their journey and will always have higher leveled Pokemon than the player.
Lolita is the main rival for the player. Lolita was a Pokemon Breeder but decided to go on her own journey to try and explore the world for what it is, and meet all kinds of different Pokemon. Lolita loves cute Pokemon and often catches them over any other Pokemon she may come across, her team alternates a lot because there are so many Pokemon she enjoys using.
Gym Leaders are a lot more powerful than they ever have been before in the Pokémon franchise as far as video games are concerned. In Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight, the Gym Leaders are given signature moves only exclusive to their team (all of which are new moves to the generation). Also, every Gym Leader has a full team of 6 Pokémon, making it significantly harder in the earlier Gym Battles in the game to defeat them. The number of Gym Leaders also increased from Eight to Twelve, along with an Elite Five instead of an Elite Four. Although, only one sole Champion remains.

The Fyeno Region
The Fyeno region in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight is the most complex in any main series Pokémon game to date. It has a lot of geographical features which you would never see all together in one defined place, such as Volcanoes, Glaciers, Forests, Mountains, Caves, Underwater Caverns, Temples, and even Airborne cities and Underwater cities.
Below are some polls that are purely for feedback purposes.
- Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight were one of my first projects that I created on the wiki, however there were several versions of it before the one you have just read took place.
- The first version of the game was entitled "Pokémon Daybreak and Nightfall versions". This idea was eventually scrapped because I personally hated the name "Nightfall".
- The second version was entitled "Pokémon Daybreak and Nightmare versions". However this was scrapped after Pokémon Nightmare contradicted with the title's theme, and was already a pre-existing ROM hack. So changing the name prevented confusion.
- Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight are far more serious than your average Pokemon game, and are similar to the pre-existing ROM Hacks Pokémon Reborn and Pokémon Rejuvenation. They also borrow a lot of elements from those games which have been transferred.
- The team names of the evil teams in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight are based on the Sun and the Moon, being Sunrise and Sunset.
- The bosses of each respective team are also based off of the Gods of the Moon and the Sun, being Helios and Selene.
- Credit to Phatmon of DeviantART for creating the designs of the Mega Pokemon for the game.
