Pokémon Order and Chaos Versions are a pair of role-playing games set to be released at the same time for an yet unspecified system. They are the first games of a new Pokémon generation entitled Generation Alpha, a new generation series that are composed of the new game mechanics created by Stardust Citadel, with no intention of replacing the original series. It takes place in the region of Lindlora, which is a region that takes inspiration from many locations of the world.
For the first time in the franchise, the game is open-world, meaning that the player is free to go wherever they want without limitations, with the exception of the path for the Elite 4. Pokémon are unique to certain locations, like in Pokémon GO, a certain type of Pokémon is more likely to appear in a location that it fits (example, a Grass-type Pokémon like Oddish can be found on fields), although some Pokémon will be limited to certain regions (for example: there might be fields in one city, although not all Pokémon that can be found on fields will be able to appear in that certain field). As the player progresses through out the game, the levels of the Pokémon and the trainers increase. Pokémon can be spotted in the overworld, removing the random encounters. Players can choose on whenever or not they should fight the Pokémon by switching stances, Passive Stance means that the player will ignore wild Pokémon battles, although trainer battles cannot be avoided this way, Agressive Stance means that the player can be attacked by Wild Pokémon.
Players can have their Pokémon out of the Pokéball, like in HeartGold/SoulSilver, which can be utilized to increase the Pokémon's friendship levels. Additionally, Pokémon out of the Pokéball can utilize their abilities outside of the field, such as the ability Anticipation which can be used to "sense" if there is a Pokémon nearby preparing an attack. Some Pokémon can only be found with the help of certain equipment, such as some ghost Pokémon can only been seen with the Spirit Scope. Additionally as the player progresses, more Pokémon become available for capture. The main goal stays the same with the player having to fight Gym Leaders and then fighting the Elite 4 to become the Pokémon Champion.
The Pokémon battles take on a more action RPG twist. The battles take place in a three-dimensional field and each player is given an attack turn and a defense turn, in which the players can utilize to use their best attacks or to from defend and flee from attacks. As such, the Pokémon moves have been fully revamped to work on this field of combat. Mega Evolutions are still available in this game, although they are a temporary power-up for balancing purposes. A new feature is the Friendship System, in which at certain points of the game, the player will be able to meet the previously defeated Gym Leaders in certain locations as well other traveling trainers and the players can become friends with them, allowing for the player to have traveling partners, whom can assist the player in double or triple battles, as well unlocking Trainer Skills.
Trainer Skills is a new mechanic in which the trainer can help the Pokémon in combat by giving it a temporary buff. Through this, the player can help the Pokémon in combat as well increasing their bond. Once a bond level between a Pokémon and a Trainer is high enough, a "Human Evolution" takes place, in which fully evolved Pokémon can "evolve" again, recieving an updated appearance based on the trainer as well recieving all the Trainer Skills all at once. This, like the Mega Evolutions, is a temporary power-up.
