So, I'm pretty new here, I played this game for the first time recently and I must say that I love it.
I just wanted to share my impressions of the game.

Considering the Academy itself, I noticed that there are two elective classes per semester, and there are three semester per year year (I think), for three years, which means that by the end we're gonna have studied all 18 pokémon types. Brilliant!

Regarding the schedule, I was wondering how it was gonna work once we have more freedom over gameplay. Are the activities gonna take some definite time, with limited free time every day?

If you can answer me can you please?

Also, regarding the characters of the game who have not been included yet (Lucas, Dawn, Barry, Ethan, Lyra, Silver, the Sun/Moon protagonists and rivals, etc.), are they gonna be freshmen while our character begins his second or third year?

As far as I know we stick to the two electives we choose for the entire three years and that it plays a big role in Red's identity and how the story develops (especially in regards to which girls he can get to know). Though it would potentially be pretty cool to be able to end up taking all of them, I think it would be an additional can of worms, plus the other students presumably are to stick to the same courses.

Further I don't remember if it's been confirmed to have three semesters. In real life the University in my city has two semesters per year.

If I remember correctly after classes we have a set amount of free time where we can travel to different locations and see if events happen, I don't know exactly how much time each visit takes or if that's been decided yet.

A handful of characters do enter the Academy while Red is in second or third year, I think the wiki lists them but I don't know how up to date it is.



That was a lot of "I'm not sures" so hopefully someone else can confirm or deny.

Yes, this is basically correct.

We'd all love to be able to change electives and such every semester but from a writing standpoint that just isn't feasible. The VN is already overly ambitious with the amount of choices and variation in the dialogue that is possible, and that would kill us. :D

Alright thanks! Will the elective classes affect the friendships and the romance routes? I hope not, but I'm just asking.

No matter what electives/clubs you pick you can still try to hang out with whoever you want. Electives and clubs will provide bonuses to certain routes, though.
