Phoenix Rising is a fangame by Gav that is currently in development.
"In a war torn nation, you’ll take on your most important call -- to unite the Oracles against a force greater than the world has ever seen."
"For hundreds of years the Council of Oracles have maintained peace in Hawthorne. They established after a great war seen a revolution overthrow their tyrannical king. However there are many who believe the Oracles have become complacent and detached. Their integrity is challenged by a family led by a man who calls himself “King” claiming to have descended from Royal Blood -- the true heir to sovereignty. The Royal Family promises to unite Hawthorne and develop it into a powerful force among larger nations. Despite their oppressive distant past people are beginning to flock to the side of the Royal Family. It is time for the High Oracle Anastasia to reunite her Council and regain their grip of peace, or surrender to the pages of history opening once more."
In Phoenix Rising, the story is affected by the choices you make and will have multiple endings based on them.
Phoenix Rising will have canon Pokémon alongside some brand new mega evolutions for Pokémon, such as Arcanine and Lilligant, as well as some alternate forms called Relic Forms for Pokémon such as Roserade and Ledyba.
