I can't speak on the first half, but I can say something about this.
PS: I know I might get yelled at for saying this but I would put this up on steam or something to get more awarness or more people interested heck you might make some money to help develop the game I know I would buy it I have bought VN's off of Steam before and so have other people I bet they would love this
We do not own Pokemon. Therefore, we cannot make any money off it. In fact, even though it's non-profit, we could still get DMCA'd by Nintendo, shutting down progress permanently. Also, putting it on Steam isn't an option, because again, we don't own Pokemon.
