Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight are two completely new games in the Pokémon franchise and serve as the initial games in the upcoming Generation, Generation VII (Generation 7), developed and published by Illusion Works in collaboration with Nintendo and Game Freak.

Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight are set for release on October 31st, 2016 worldwide onto the New Nintendo 3DS, digitally and physically. Intentionally, it releases on the same day as the national holiday Halloween. 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.


To be finalized.


Another generation of PokTemplate:Emon to explore!

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.

Updated Engine

To be added.

Arcane Type

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 Grass/Arcane type in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight instead of its previous Psychic typing in other generations.

7th Generation Type Chart

Until I add a Type Chart here, below are the main changes to the system.

  • Ice now resists Water
  • Bug is now super-effective on Fairy
  • Ice is now super-effective on Fairy
  • Arcane is super-effective against Ghost, Dragon, Normal and Psychic.
  • Bug is super-effective on Arcane
  • Grass is super-effective on Arcane

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, Arcane or Ghost 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 couldn't fly to be able to Soar in the Sky. Below is a list of eligible Pokemon now able to use this mechanic. Template:Collapse

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

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. More information on how they become available will be provided soon.

New Moves

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. Template:Collapse


The HM system was completely reworked in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight after several controversial issues with HMs 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 HM moves and one HM slot, specifically for HM moves. Pokemon can still have HMs in their normal four moves, but also have that extra slot so using HMs is easier.

The viable HM list in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight has been completely re-adjusted for Generation VII, and includes previously TM moves now as HM moves as they have significant usage.

New Items


In Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight, along with short overviews of the story in a badge by badge fashion.

Anchor Badge

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.

Gym Leaders

Gym Leaders are a lot more powerful than they ever have been in the Pokemon series. In Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight, the Gym Leaders are given signature moves only exclusive to their team. Also, every Gym Leader has a team of 6 Pokemon, making it significantly harder in the earlier Gym Battles in the game. 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. Template:PDTTrainers

The Fyeno Region

The Fyeno region in Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight is the most complex in any Pokemon game to date. It has a lot of geographical features which you would never see all together in one place, such as Volcanoes, Glaciers, Forests, Mountains, Caves, Underwater Caverns, Temples, and even Airborne Cities or Towns and the world of Dreams.

See: Fyeno for more information.

List of Locations

This list is purely for my reference only and will be removed once work on the Fyeno page has begun more efficiently.

Fyeno has 72 Routes, 42 Cities/Towns, and 22 Events/Special Places.

  • Pokémon Daybreak and Pokémon Twilight were one of my first projects that I created the wiki, however there were several versions of it before the one you've just read took place.
    • The first version of the game was entitled "Pokémon Daybreak and Nightfall versions". This idea was eventually scrapped because I 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, 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.
  • 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.
