Pokemon Topaz Version (ダークポケモンバージョン Pocket Monsters Sound) and Pokemon Amethyst Version (ポケモンライトバージョン Pocket Monsters Cosmic) are role-playing game developed and published by Nintendo and Studio Lillie (tbc). It features many improvements over past generations.

Region

SossegoPure

Pokémon Topaz and Amethyst takes place in the region of Sossego, connected to the same continent as Unova. As thus, many Pokémon and ideas carry over from Unova to Sossego. The region has a very forested and moderate south end, which is heavily effected by the changing of the seasons, as well as a cold north, which appears mostly the same throughout the year. Thus, there is a bit of a cultural split between the north and the south; those in the north consider southerners to be weak, while those in the south consider northerners to be uncultured.

Most important to the reaction is the idea of Type Parties. These Parties are groups of people who feel highly connected with a certain type of Pokémon. Some of these Parties are freely controlled and have open membership, while some rely upon blood lineage or power to be run. In the past, these Parties often fought wars against each other for control of Sossego's resources, but they now have only friendly rivalries. Most well known is the rivalry between the Fairy Party in the northewest and the Dragon Party in the southwest, which is empowered by the cultural differences between those regions as well as tensions between those two types.

These Parties are brought together by the Party Journey. This Journey is similar to the Gym Challenge in other regions, as new Trainers travel the region, challenging members of each Party. This is said to keep the Parties in check and prevents any single Party from becoming too powerful, while also integrating the common people into the Party system.

Gameplay

Synergy Band

Synergyicon
A huge new feature introduced into the game is the Synergy Band. After the Band is unlocked, the player is given the ability to collect Synergy Energy in battle. Every turn, a certain amount of Energy is earned, and the Band is completely filled with enemy after an enemy is KO'd. When the Band is full with energy, the player can then expend it to either Battle Bond/Mega Evolve a Pokémon, or activate a Z-Move.

Thanks to this, Pokémon no longer have to hold an item to utilize Z-moves or Mega Evolutions. However, they do have to KO an opponent or wait for many turns to activate it. A new item, the Synergy Orb, can be held by a Pokémon to instantly fill the Battle Band at the beginning of battle.

Terrain Effects

An important focus of the game play changes was the fine tuning of various terrain effects, including weather, time of day, and terrain. Many new abilities and moves have been introduced to make use of these effects, bringing them into the spotlight in the metagame.

The time of the day is now utilized in battle, and can be changed with various moves and abilities; in normal competitive battles, the time of the day is "neutral", and does not benefit or hurt anything. Additionally, a new terrain has been added: Flooded Terrain, which boosts the Speed of any Pokémon in the Water 1, 2, or 3 Egg Groups, and powers up certain moves. Lastly, terrain effects now occur in certain battling areas in single player.

New Type Matchups

With the addition of the Cosmic and Sound types, the matchup table has been redone, with many matchups changing. Most types now have a balanced number of Weaknesses and Resistances, and Strengths and Weaknesses, making the entire system more balanced.

Friend Safari

Returning from Pokémon X and Y are Friend Safaris. This feature allows players to go into small zones that are dedicated to each of the friends on their friends list. Each friend has a different layout and different type, which determines what type of Pokémon can be found there. These Pokémon are always Pokémon that cannot be found in Sossego, and every Pokémon that isn't in the region can be found this way.

Version Exclusives

Pokémon Topaz and Amethyst, like previous games, have certain Pokémon that can only be found in one version of the game; in fact, this generation has more exclusives than any other. Additionally, no non-Legendary line of Pokémon that was introduced in this generation is exclusive, meaning that the rest were all introduced previously. The developers stated that this way, players would be able to experience all of the new Pokémon regardless of which version they have, while still providing a reason for there to be seperate versions.

Plot

The story starts off in in the outskirts of Aster City, following a young trainer. This trainer, whose default name is Landry, is about to begin their Pokémon journey in the region.

As the player travles through the world, they begin to encounter the many Partys of the region, as described above. The player is given a fair amount of freedom in travelling through the world, sometimes being able to skip past a Party without fighting them (although they must eventually return if they wish to finish the game), but at some point they are forced to choose between the Dragon and Fairy Parties. This will decide what routes are immediately available to them, as well as what story points they can see. After the player beats all of the other Parties, they will be able to make peace between the Dragons and the Fairies, and gain the allyship of both.

Eventually, the player will make it to Âster City within the Vibrant Desert at the southeast corner of the region. Here they will find the tyranical Steel Party, who have taken control of the city with their massive wealth. The Dragon and Fairy Parties, who have finally found peace thanks to the players efforts, are now trying to find ways into the city to stop their tyranny. They explain to the player that the Steel Party used to be just like the others, but suddenly gained large amounts of money and pride.

The player uses their Pokémon and the help of the other Parties to break into the city and make their way up the Central Tower. At the top, they find the leader of the Steel Party, Jamél, who begins explaining how they grew so powerful. Just a year before the start of the game, they were able to steal the elusive Pokémon Mew from a group in Kanto and began experimenting with it. They found a secret message hidden in Mew's DNA that explained how the very universe was created, and led to their great wealth.

The message explained that there was an alternatve universe with wildlife completely different from the Trainers world. Rather than Pokémon, they had "animals" with similar properties. At one point, the scientists in this world became overzealous with their skills and created a superpowerful animal that could alter the very fabric of reality itself. Due to their hubric, their world began to collapse. The scientists decided to try and save the details of their world, so they took the DNA of every lifeform they knew of and wrote it into a new animals DNA to preserve it, creating Mew. Then they told their other creation to take itself and Mew to another dimension in which they could prosper and rebuild their world using Mew's DNA.

Jamél tells the player that there was an issue: when Mew and this other lifeform moved across dimensions, they experienced very high amounts of radiation, resulting in Mew's DNA changing heavily. The other lifeform took on the form of Arceus, and took Mew's DNA and synthesized it into new lifeforms. Rather than the animals of their old world, however, these new creatures were Pokémon, having had their own DNA heavily altered. The only creatures that remained the same were most of the plants, and the humans, who began to populate the world just as they had in their own dimension.

New Pokémon

Pokémon Topaz and Amethyst introduce a total of 95 new Pokémon, more than any generation has introduced since Generation 5. Within these Pokémon are many new typing combinations, including the two new types of Cosmic and Sound. Many new Regional Forms, Mega Evolutions, and Battle Bonds are introduced as well, with some previous Mega Evolutions being re-purposed.

Like in the previous generations, the game introduces no new cross-generation evolutions, as that need to interaction with previous generations is served by the new formes introduced.

Battle Bonds

Although every Pokémon without a Mega Evolution is able to perform a Battle Bond, not all of them take on a new appearance when doing so. Some specific Pokémon, many of them starters, have a specific form that can only be activated when a Battle Bond is active. In this form, their stats are boosted, and one of their moves increases in power, with a potential difference in Secondary Effect.
