Updated: January 6, 2024


For generations Pokemon has been a game where you get your starter from the professor,
catching wild Pokemon, defeating the Gym Bosses, defeating the Elite 4 and inevitably becoming a Champion.
You might even get a Legendary Pokemon or two along the way. All of this is considered the typical Pokemon game format. Today I bring you something different… Unique, so to speak. Pokemon Pathways project is currently being edited by a whole community, but it started with just two people. We both had fun making this game and it’s the first game we’ve ever made and released.
We hope you all have fun playing. Without further delay!

Also, be sure to try out Pokemon GS Chronicles!


Player’s Choice
A majority of in Pokemon Pathways outcomes are solely dependent on your choices alone. What you say, do and decide will dictate your future, just like real life.

Character Stats
Stats such as Intelligence, Strength, Charm and Skill are all calculated based on your choices in game. These stats also determine what you as an individual are capable of. Make a choice, and you’ll see one of these stats effected.

  • Intelligence – Determines how smart the player is. It is needed to ascend to higher rank classes and discover the unknown.
  • Strength – Determines how physically strong the player is. It is needed to move, make or break objects!
  • Charm – Determines how attractive the player is. It is needed to increase success when flirting and to encounter Legendary Pokemon!
  • Skill – Determines the player’s abilities as a Pokemon trainer. It is needed to unlock more wild Pokemon and Trainers to battle!

Energy – A character stat that determines how many actions you are able to do in a day. Various activities will consume your Energy.
You will be notified once your Energy is low, and once it is low enough, you will have the choice to sleep and start the next day.

Interactions – Not necessarily a character stat, but still effected by player actions. It determines the game’s time of day.
Essentially, the more interactions you make in a day, the more time has passed. It is reset everyday.

Reputation – Positive and Negative alignment based on your choices in game. Some may be good, others not so much.
The same person may say different things to you depending on your level of Reputation.

Academy Perks – Winning Club activities will grant you different perks that are permanent!
There are 13 in total but you can only have two so choose wisely!

NPC Affinity – Some of the NPC’s in your class are students you can bond with. These NPC’s will give you a variety of things.
Their affinity with you is displayed when interacted with. You may talk and battle with them daily, and will be able to unlock future interactions as well.

Schooling System – You are at an academy with your own dorm room. You are expected to complete homework on time and attend class Monday – Friday.
Failure to do so will result in a detention. Getting enough Detentions and skipping detentions skipped will ultimately lead to your expulsion.

Save Points – You are only able to save the game when you sleep to start a new day or visit poke centers. No more saving wherever and whenever! (Temporarily disabled for Easier Beta Test Bug Reporting)
This feature is to force you to think about your choices because there is no going back and redoing, unless you’re willing to forfeit a days worth of progress.

Multiple Save Files – You are able to have up to 8 different savefiles!
This gives you the option to see and experience the many different choices and outcomes available in Pokemon Pathways without having to lose your main progress! Also Try Pokemon Flux.

Previous Version


is pokemon pathways complete?

The full version is still a work in progress. For Generations, Pokemon has been a game where you get your starter from the professor, catch wild Pokemon, Beat the gym leaders, defeat the elite 4 and inevitably become Champion.

how to play pokemon pathways on android?

Pokemon Pathways isn’t officially playable on Android due to compatibility issues with emulators. The developers recommend playing on PC. You can find download info for the PC version on the game’s official forum or Discord server.

how to evolve meltan in pokemon pathways?

Evolving Meltan in Pokemon Pathways involves meeting Professor Sycamore on a Friday with high Charisma (50+) or the Manipulator skill (25+ Charisma requirement). Check the Pokemon Pathways forums or Discord for specifics.

Pokemon pathways debug mode

The “Main” here loads all the scripts that are in the Scripts folder. From the dev perspective, this is way more comfortable this way ^^”

To answer your question, and I don’t know where I saw this but I have this info in my dev journal: on Windows, right click on the Game.exe, then click “create a shortcut”. On the “target”, you will see a long path to Game.exe; put “debug” (without the quotation marks) at the end.
NOTE: if the path to Game.exe is also between quotation marks, the “debug” word should be outside the quotation marks, just like this:

"C:Long/Path/To/Game.exe" debug
