What is the role of a Mapper?
Together with Content Scripters, Artists, Developers, and Admins; Mappers represent that part of the staff called Content Staff, who have access and are in charge of the creation and editing of the content of the game.
In specific, a mapper is an individual who creates the maps for the game, which are commonly known to be used for story, events, etc. Some examples of map can be Pallet Town, Pinkan Island or Eumi Island.
Mappers create maps through the use of an editor and the use of tiles. The Mapper Team should always monitor the community's interests as well as the staff's channels in order to know what needs to be mapped, as well as the Mapping Bugs forum in the Bug Resolution in order to find and fix the mapping errors reported by the community.
Mapper needs to have a sense of space and overall map look.
