We wanted to make a way to play Zork with voice, then when we realized that it was the anniversary of Pokemon, we decided to make a tribute to them

What it does

Currently nothing, but once we finish it, we will be able to walk through a Pokemon game (currently Ruby) through voice commands to the Amazon Alexa

How I built it

We tried to build it with minimal sleep in the last 12 hours before the hackathon ended... didn't work out too well

Challenges I ran into

Connecting lambda and dynamo db was very difficult

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

it will be very easy for us to add other scenarios once we have it working, we made it very easily extensible

What I learned

how to write an alexa skill/code node js

What's next for PokeZork

getting it to work!
