Title: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 13 September, 2010, 10:26:36 am
Hey, since it sounds like ZeldaFan's fanfic is going into limbo, I was thinking of starting a Pokemon RP, something that I've been hoping to do for a while. It'd follow a similar setup to Zeldafan's idea, being in a new region, with new gyms, characters, etc., with possibly the same characters that were planned for the story.

Would anyone be on board for this? We'd have to have a few people heading it up (i.e., controlling Gym Leaders, other characters important to the plot, etc.), as it'd be difficult to keep it alive with only one person in charge.

I personally would want to see how many people would be up for this, before making it official.

Would it take into account all the things Zeldafan had already decided on for the region? Y'know, gym leaders, elite 4, locations, etc?

I could re-use my character, and potentially RP some other characters.

If you'd like to do that, then I have no problems with that.

And other than my two planned characters for this, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw some of the TIA RP characters in this as trainers.

No.

Okay, then you don't have to.

Yes. It'd essentially just be ZeldaFan's fanfic, but in RP form. So it'd have everything that was originally planned.

Also, what would people prefer? Trainers only, or moments where the trainers are temporarily absent, so the Pokemon can "speak" and interact?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

Cool.


And I don't really know about the trainers/pokemon thing... I'll have to see what other people think.

I'm personally iffy about the idea myself, but I figured that I'd through it out there just in case.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 13 September, 2010, 01:37:33 pm
I have to say, though, I'm leaning a little more towards only trainers. Although, people could have their pokemon talking to each other normally, with the trainers still present, and then put translations of what they're saying underneath or something.

That could work as well.

Just absolutely no talking like they're in the show. They make animalistic noises, not say their name over and over like they got hit in the head with a cinder block one too many times.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 13 September, 2010, 01:46:38 pm
I'd prefer non-speaking pokemon, unless the trainers are nowhere to be seen.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 13 September, 2010, 01:50:06 pm
Fair enough, although it's implied that the various pokemon were named after the noises they make, rather than the other way around.

To be honest, that doesn't even account for all the pokemon. Otherwise things like Gyarados would just be called "ROOoooooooooooOOOOOOOAaaaaaaaRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrgggggghhhhh!" or something.

Sorry, I don't think I ever officially answered your first question. Yes, I'd probably be up for this RP, even though I'd most likely get my ass kicked.

You don't have to be a trainer. you could be a breeder, collector, groomer, what have you.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

Nah, at least I have some idea of how to RP a trainer.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 13 September, 2010, 06:16:02 pm
Once I've got a more reliable/easier way to get on, I'm totally game, and I can even be some of the important NPCs, like Gym Leaders or other such important figures.


Also, while I think the RP should focus on the trainers, that doesn't mean you can't RP the Pokemon too. That is to say. obviously you would be RPing your trainer's pokemon, just, you know, put effort into RPing their personality. Even if it's no more elaborate than assigning a Nature to them and RPing them based on that.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 14 September, 2010, 10:44:59 am
So, if eveyone's on board, could you send me all of the stuff that you had so far, Zeldafan? Regarding the region, gym leaders, etc.? If not, could you maybe come up with some before you're officially back?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 14 September, 2010, 05:47:56 pm
I think Gar has quite a bit of it, because we PM'd about some ideas he had, and then there's the stuff in my topic.

*looks at Gar* I would really appreciate it if you gathered together the stuff we talked about and sent it to Agaranok. Since, you know, I'm on my Wii and it'd be a lot easier for you.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 14 September, 2010, 05:49:28 pm
Okay, I'll try to gather it together at some point. I don't really fancy going through my PMs right now...


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 14 September, 2010, 08:39:10 pm
Take your time. We probably only need 4 gym leaders or so for the moment being.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 14 September, 2010, 08:41:02 pm
Grah, I had a list of the types for the Gym Leaders somewhere....I think it's in my topic, let me go look....

EDIT:
Found it! The types for the gyms and the order they occured in was:
1 ) Ground
2 ) Normal
3 ) Bug
4 ) Poison
5 ) Ghost
6 ) Flying
7 ) Dragon
8 ) Dark


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 15 September, 2010, 06:52:11 am
I think the only Gym Leader we'd really started working on was the Ghost one.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 15 September, 2010, 03:42:08 pm
Well, I had worked on the Ground Gym Leader a little bit. It was going to be a girl, and her name was Sandy. That was pretty much all the farther I got with her.

The town her gym was located in, however, was located right next to a large canyon filled with fossils. I was planning on one or two of the main characters picking up a Pokemon fossil while they were there, and then getting it revived later in the story.

I'll play a gym leader if you need on. Though maybe you want Gym leaders to be NPC's otherwise we might just have a bunch of Gym Leaders running around.

Yeah, they'd just be NPCs. But anyone willing to play as them would be greatly appreciated.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 15 September, 2010, 04:47:50 pm
They'd be PC's, but event only PC's. So they wouldn't be part of the adventure itself, only in the gyms and other events if it's story related.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 15 September, 2010, 04:51:39 pm
Well, actually, if anyone is going to be the Ghost gym leader, I was hoping it could be me. I kind of had a specific idea in mind for her.

See, the idea I had was to base her off an itako. For those of you who aren't huge Japanese culture nerds/Shaman King fans, an itako is a type of traditional Japanese shaman. Traditionally, itako are females, and traditionally, they're blind.

So my idea was to have a blind girl for the Ghost type gym leader. She'd use one of her Ghost Pokemon as more or less a "seeing eye Pokemon". She'd also have a personality you wouldn't necessarily think of when you think of a ghost type user. She'd be a fairly cheerful girl who doesn't really seem to let her blindness bother her. I do imagine her having a slightly morbid sense of humor, and having a love of "creepy" things, but for the most part, she wouldn't fit the stereotypical image of a ghost type user.

I think it's an awesome idea. What does everyone else think?

Hm... I don't know. I'm still not sure about the idea of the blind Gym Leader...


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 15 September, 2010, 05:23:29 pm
See, I love the idea because I love the characterization trope of a badass blind warrior. It's half the reason I love Toph from Avatar so much. I <3 blind characters.


And now that I'm thinking about it, there are a lot of awesome Ghost types in the Fifth gen. And seeing as how Black and White will at least be released in Japan by the time we would begin this RP, I think the obvious question must be asked.

Are 5th Gen Pokemon allowed?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 15 September, 2010, 05:26:52 pm
Well, she's your character...


And weren't you planning to have a Gear in your party anyway?

I'd say no, not right away. I'd prefer to leave it with the Pokemon that we currently have. Now, I was thinking that after a while, depending on how long this RP goes for, we could have travel between the different game regions. And by that point, we'd hopefully have some of the English names, and then we could start allowing them.

Or is that too unfair? I mean, I'm sure that we could make some exceptions, like if it's only one Pokemon on a team, but no teams full of 5th generation just yet.

David's trainer from my fanfic idea. I mean, this is pretty much the RP version of that fanfic.

Although, truth be told, I'm not 100% sure if I want to use Raine or not.....I might just RP two trainers. Raine, and a character who's more in line with my usual character style. Basically, a Trainer version of Michal.

Yeah, I like your idea of allowing 5th Gen Pokemon on a case by case basis until we get the American release. In all honesty, that'll only take about a year or so, and hopefully the RP won't have died by then.

But I'm calling it now. If I do use Raine, I totally want a Gear on her team.

....I suppose I do want to use Raine now. And if I'm going to be Raine, I'll probably be her mom, Professor Maple, whenever we need her to serve some kind of role. I mean, if that's ok with everyone.

Okay, so I figured that the fighting would go something like this. It'll be like the show in that Pokemon can learn more than 4 moves, and it isn't necessarily turn-based, however, stronger attacks can only be learned by higher-level Pokemon, and each attack much stay accurate to the game. This means no "Thunder Armor" or blocking fire with Swords Dance, or anything like that. This also means no ridiculous combo attacks, like Solarbeam and Fire Blast. However, a single could do something like Double Team and an attack as a combo, or Quick Attack to get distance and then cancelling it, in order to go into a close-up attack.

That sound fair?

Well, in all honesty, I think that it would be ok in Double and Triple Battles if two Pokemon combined their attacks. I mean, that is sort of a new mechanic in the Gen V games anyways. Still, nothing stupid.

I also think we should be allowed to get somewhat creative with the Pokemon's capabilities. For example, like how in Pokemon Special, Blue's (the girl) Blastoise could fly by firing his water canons at the ground and stuff like that.

I would picture a kind of blend of the anime/manga style of battles, but at the same time following the rules of the game kind of closely. At least better than the anime does.

So yeah, no Thunder Armor or "Aim for the horn!" bullshit.

Basically, standard rules for any RPing that involves fighting: Don't godmod, and don't be an ass.

Hasn't Lightningrod been redesigned in Gen V so that it actually raises a stat of the pokemon when hit by an electric attack, of have I completely imagined that?

No, I was the one who said that. If a Pokemon has Lightningrod and is hit by an Electric attack, it's Special Attack goes up one stage, and it's immune to the attack.

Post by: zeldafan42 on 19 September, 2010, 04:07:50 pm
Yeah, Lightning Rod is basically just like Flash Fire now, only with Electric moves.

Speaking of abilities, we definitely are going to be paying attention to Abilities, right? Like, actually implement them into our Pokemon's combat styles and everything.


.....and I liked Blue's Flying Blastoise. >_> I mean, it makes sense how that one works.

Abilities will be crucial, yes. Otherwise my Scizor's Bullet Punch wouldn't be as devastating. It needs Technician.

I think it's still too silly. I can see that being used for like, the Pokemon equivalent of a rocket-jump, but not "flying."

That's more or less what happened. Blue's Blastoise pointed its canons backwards and used them to hover off the ground.


And I suppose I'll give this round to you Agaranok. I do think its silly for Blastoise to propel itself forward through the air with just water, but as long as they're pointed at the ground, I can see Blastoise hovering. Think of it like Mario with the FLUDD in Sunshine, and the different attachments. I imagine it would more or less work like that.

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 22 September, 2010, 09:11:51 am
What position did you say the Ghost leader would have, Zeldafan? Was she 4th or 5th?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 09:40:13 am
5th.

First four are:
Ground
Normal
Bug
Poison

And all the farther I got in planing them was that the first gym leader was a girl named Sandy.

Would you guys be able to brainstorm some ideas for towns and Gym Leaders? For the towns, I just need the name and what kind of town they are, and for the Gym Leaders, I just need their names, personalities, and Pokemon. We can ad-lib the rest for when the RP actually starts. I can help you come up with stuff, but I need a general direction regarding how you wanted things to turn out.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

ILS! You can have secret stoy planning PMs with me! Next time you have an idea you're debating, or have writer's block, just PM me and I'll help!

Well, like I said, as far as towns go, I know I wanted the first town to be situated by a large canyon, and if you go into the canyon, you can find Pokemon fossils.

As for names, I'll leave those up to you guys. I'm horrible with names.

Anyone have any ideas beyond that?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 22 September, 2010, 11:07:11 am
I know it's not one of the first few areas, but I think Zeldafan and I agreed that the 5th Gym's town would be near a forest, which would contain a shrine/graveyard that serves as the region's obligatory ghost area.

Whether or not there should be a regular bug forest before that, I don't know.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 22 September, 2010, 11:07:28 am
Might just be my terrible memory, but I think ice/snow towns have been horribly underused.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 22 September, 2010, 11:08:59 am
That'd be fine by me. Just means one less cave.

And snow towns are good, it's just that Snowpoint City was terrible.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 22 September, 2010, 11:15:59 am
True, though I'm not talking about the general quality of them, I'm thinking of the theme.

You always have some sort of town by a forest, and you always have a town by the sea, and you always have some sort of major/big town, you always have some sort of mountain town... Snow/ice towns are very rarely used, so I thought that might be an idea.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

Sounds good.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 11:22:23 am
Also, this region doesn't have an ice gym, so the snow town probably wouldn't have a gym.

And yeah, the haunted forest idea. I loved that one.
I imagine it would start out like a normal forest, with mostly bug and grass types, but the deeper into the forest you get, the more you'd begin to see ghost and dark types.

Of course, you'd have to pass through the haunted part to reach the fifth gym's city.

I almost imagine the fifth gym's city being kind of old fasioned, and sort of isolated from the rest of the region. Perhaps it's actually located in a large clearing in the forest, and you pass through the forest to both enter and exit the city? It's an idea that just passed through my head.

The city would have a long tradition of training Pokemon Mediums who can communicate with the souls of departed Pokemon. This is why they're also so good at raising Ghost types.
I also imagine it's quite common for people from this city to have minor spiritual powers.

Bah, all the cool ideas I have are for the fifth gym's city....need to focus on earlier parts of the region....


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 22 September, 2010, 11:24:18 am
Just because there isn't an Ice Gym leader doesn't mean that you can't have a gym there. For example, whatever type the Gym Leader uses could use the tough environment for intensive training.

Thinking outside the box here, perhaps an underwater town? Protected by a glass bubble, perhaps. Maybe with a theme park... theme. A theme park theme. You know, lots of colored lights, expensive hotels, attractions...


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 22 September, 2010, 11:33:34 am
Hang on, scratch what I said about the fighting gym, because there isn't one. We could put the Dragon gym in the ice town, though. Dragons are weak to Ice, so that'd be some pretty intense training. It'd also teach the gym members ho to overcome the weakness to Ice.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 11:35:15 am
Yeah, I think so. I don't know how much you would want to touch upon the Pokemon Medium thing with him, but maybe he has some kind of minor gift with Ghost types? Just tossing things around.


I know, I thought of a Fighting gym working well in a snow town, but I don't have one of those either.
I chose my types by looking at all the gyms and choosing the types that only had 1 or 2 gyms as of Gen 4. Fighting had three gyms, and Ice had two. Ice just got cut because I liked some of the other types better.

There's a Dragon gym for the 7th gym. Maybe the Dragon gym is located in an ice town in an effort to help the leader's Dragon type Pokemon better resist Ice type attacks?

*looks up and realizes Gar said this while I was typing it*

....crap, ninja'd.

And I don't know about the ghost thing... By which I mean I'm intrigued by the idea, but I'm not sure how to implement it. I mean, I planned for him to have a Gastly as his starter, and he'd have gotten a Rotom later on...


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 11:47:04 am
It's your character, it's all up to you. Not everyone in that town has spirtual powers/medium training. Just thought I'd toss it out there.

However, I imagine youngsters from that down would commonly recieve either ghost or dark types as their first Pokemon, so your character definitely shows his heritage by starting with Gastly.

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 22 September, 2010, 12:00:25 pm
Thinking of stuff that hasn't been done before...

How about a town populated only by pokemon breeders? So it's like a resort town for pokemon.

Or a sky town? By which I mean, an artificially built town in the sky? Perhaps built with supports next to a mountain, and you have to enter a large elevator to reach it?

This is probably a bit too grim, but what about coming across a destroyed town, that's clearly been ravaged by robbers and powerful wild pokemon? Destroyed buildings, etc.

Maybe a natural town? I think it's been done before, but where everything is either built into, or built out of whatever nature is around the area? So either houses built into tree stumps, ropes made out of plants weaved together, stuff like that.

Just throwing ideas out here, feel free to call bullshit or say the ideas are crap.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 12:05:12 pm

3rd gym is a Bug type gym. I have no ideas beyond that. If you have a good idea for a Bug gym leader character, post it here and I'll let you know what I think.


*looks at ILS's ideas*
Some of those sound good.
6th gym is flying, so the "sky city" idea could work for that, though I may play around how we implement it.

The "natural town" you're thinking of is Fortree City in Hoenn, where the houses were built in trees and everything was connected via log/rope bridge.
But I can see a similar idea working for this region, maybe for the Bug gym's city?

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

Actually, ILs, the destroyed/ravaged town would work, considering what Salty's plans for the evil team is. It could be incorporated perfectly.

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 12:59:49 pm
Truth be told, for the flying gym/sky city, I just now had the idea of a city suspended between two mountains. The way I see it, it would sort of be like someone built a giant bridge/platform between two mountians, and then built a city there.

I even have a name for it. Twinpeaks City.

You would entire one of the mountains and travel through it to enter the city, and then exiting the city would take you through the other mountain.

That's what the mountain is for.

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 01:21:19 pm
Not much. I just wanted it to be located next to a canyon that contained Pokemon fossils.

Inccedently, I do believe this is the third time I've stated that in this topic.

So far we have six town ideas. I'll add notes, but this is just the pure basics:


Valley town first gym (ground)
Natural town third gym (bug)
Haunted forest city Fifth gym (ghost)
Sky town, Twinpeaks City sixth gym (Flying)
Snow/ice town - no gym
Destroyed/ravaged town No gym


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 01:30:18 pm
Well, after the mountian, there could be a short snowy route, and then you reach the snow town. It's not like the town has to be built right at the exit of the mountain.

That said, I have to get ready for work now, so I'm leaving. I won't be back until later tonight, so I'll probably catch you guys again tomorrow, which is another later shift.

What, no Steel gym?

Also, here's a few ideas for towns.

Cave town, with all that that implies.

Swamp town, which you reach from the obligatory sea journey.

Crater town, located in either a remote or central location.

Okay heres a rough Layout of my Bug Gym leader

Name: Chrysa
Age:22
Appearance:(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb187/Fierce_Deity_Adol/7fe6bbe474c1f02ccb29a08bb8ba36763dad66de.jpg)
Bio:The 3rd gym leader, she comes from a long line of ninja that specialize in using Bug-types not only for battle but to assit them in missions as well(using Spinarak to build web traps, Skorupi and Nicada for digging tunnels ect.)Because of this she has been trained to be calm and calculating though as a down side her training has somewhat made her socially awkward  and can be easily confused if she encounters something she is not familiar with, she is als a very soft spoken individual.

Pokemon:Skorupi, Pinsir, Ninjask


Opinions?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 22 September, 2010, 07:20:34 pm
It's a nice idea, but I think you might want to use a different picture. She looks rather similar to a character from the anime.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXFrw9soO98

I'm mostly referring to hear appearance from 2:56 onwards. And she uses a Venonat, a Bug, for her main pokemon.

Also, to be honest, the ninja gym leader thing has already really been done with Koga and Janine. Granted, neither of them were Bug trainers, but still...

I'll let Zeldafan and Agaranok decide, I'm just voicing my opinion.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Adol the Red on 22 September, 2010, 07:30:05 pm
I changed the appearance


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 22 September, 2010, 07:47:52 pm
That's better, but my point about ninja gym leaders still stands. I'll wait and see what Zeldafan and Agaranok think.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 22 September, 2010, 09:02:42 pm
Actually, I had been toying around with the idea of a ninja Bug gym leader. I like the idea, I just wasn't sure if I wanted to do it or not.


Regardless of whether or not she's a ninja, her name is going to be Chrysa now, no exceptions. That is an amazing name for a bug leader. It made me laugh so hard.


*at Salty*
No, I'm using Steel for the Elite 4. The typing for the Elite 4 is going to be:
Steel
Grass
Fire
Water

There's a thematic reason I chose those types, so they're not going to change no matter what.

The town ideas are added.

Also, I'll try to have a description of some sort made for the towns (At least the ones we've brained about/the ideas I had)


Also, did we agree to have 4 moves per pokemon like in the games? If so, do we write profiles for our pokemon as well, with their movelist?

I'm not certain, still debating. It'd be cool to have more than 4, but part of the reason we have only 4 is for the strategy of it, so I'm not certain. I think I'm leaning more towards the idea of infinite legal attacks.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 23 September, 2010, 08:24:03 am
I think that'd make more sense in an RP battle. Though of course they could only use the moves up to their current level.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 23 September, 2010, 08:33:35 am
Alright. What about TM learnable moves?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 23 September, 2010, 09:35:41 am
TMs exist, and if a Trainer can find them, he can use them. But they aren't that common in this region, so it's not like you'll see trainers running around with Pokemon loaded up with TM moves.
Also, like in Black and White, if you find a TM and use it, it doesn't break, so it's yours to keep and reuse as you want. All Gym Leaders will continue to give out TMs, and we'll use the 4th gen TM list.
( So if you're RPing a Gym Leader, you better decide what TM you want to give out. )


And while we're talking about moves, yes Move Tutors exist in this region as well. Like TMs, they aren't that common, and additionally, they'll charge some kind of fee to teach your Pokemon moves. But if your trainer finds a move tutor, feel free to use it.

Of course, these are just my thoughts onthe subject. If Agaranok feels otherwise, I'm willing to discuss things.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 23 September, 2010, 09:50:51 am
What kind of fee?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 23 September, 2010, 09:56:04 am
So the moves our pokemon know should primarily only be natural moves?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 23 September, 2010, 10:24:28 am
What kind of fee?

Probably money, or like in the case of Plainum, the shards scattered about the region.

So the moves our pokemon know should primarily only be natural moves?

Primarily, yes. Unless it's a very high-ranking trainer, like my character, who has pretty much free reign.

And if your Pokemon was obtained by some special means, like given as a gift, I'll allow egg moves.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 23 September, 2010, 10:26:19 am

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 23 September, 2010, 10:40:08 am
So egg moves are only allowed on gift pokemon?

That, or if the trainer is a Pokemon Breeder as well. Gift Pokemon don't have to necessarily be in the RP, it could just be used as a backstory explanation as to why a Pokemon has a certain move. For example, my trainer's Feraligatr was originally a gift given to him by Professor Elm at the request of his father, which is why it knows Dragon Dance.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 23 September, 2010, 10:45:26 am
So pokemon caught in the wild can't have any egg moves at all?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 23 September, 2010, 10:50:02 am
I wouldn't say that they should, unless it's a move crucial to that Pokemon. I may be able to make exceptions.

Since I'll be DM-ing a lot of this, I might be nice and throw out a wild Pokemon that does have an egg move, but it'll be in a rare instance.

I'm voting no. We already have almost 500 (over 600 if we ever include Gen V pokemon) to choose from, and it'll be much easier to keep track if we limit it to just real pokemon.

No, Fakemon will not be used. One, they aren't official, two, we already have 600+ Pokemon to choose from, and three, they're too general. They only provide us with designs, not moves, stats, abilities, etc.

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 23 September, 2010, 12:37:59 pm
No, you'll be controlling what Pokemon you encounter. If I make you encounter a wild Pokemon, it'll usually have some sort of significance, like being a shiny, having an egg move, or being a legendary. It's supposed to be set so that you can gather the team that you want.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

I'd like to know this, too. The list I made with Zeldafan's help had more than six on it... The idea was that my character would switch them around once he got more than six.

Hey, Agaranok....I was sort of assuming that I would be semi-sharing GMing duties with you. Is that alright? You'd be the main GM, but I'd be assitant GM. Partially because that means Raine could be used as a GM mouthpiece to poke and prod the plot along when needed.

Speaking of Pokemon limits, I know with Raine that she'll be catching a lot of Pokemon that she'll never actually use, but she's just catching to send back to her mom, Professor Maple, for research.

Should i expand my town idea document into a document containing general ideas and information? Nothing about plot, or the evil team etc, but stuff like how the system works, the towns, gyms, how movesets work and so on. Is someone already doing that, or should I do it?


Also, the whole "haunted forest before arriving at the ghost gym" made me think... What if there was some sort of ordeal or challenge that trainers need to go through in order to reach the gyms? The haunted forest would of course be the ghost gym's challenge/ordeal, and there'd be other similar/different (Depending on how many ideas we may or may not come up with) ordeals/challenges for the other gyms?

Again, just an idea.

Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: zeldafan42 on 24 September, 2010, 11:34:17 am
Yeah, with the gyms, I didn't want it to be like the anime where you just show up and challenge the leader. I think each leader should have their own personalized test that you have to pass before you can challenge them.

Some would be big and take place outside of the gym, but I imagine at least a couple of gym leaders just having something small located inside of the gym building itself, like in the games.

While we're on the subject of gyms, I did have one other gym leader I wanted to call dibs on. The 8th Gym Leader, the Dark type one. Since he's the last Gym Leader, I wanted to do something special with him, although I'm not exactly sure what I want to do yet. I was wondering if it would be ok with everyone if I claim creative control and RPing rights on him.

I think we agreed that I would RP the ghost gym leader when she came up.

Ghost and Dark are the only two gym leaders I absolutely want to RP. Anybody else can take the other gyms if they want, and then if any gym leaders are left over, I'll take them if I have to.

It's just with those two gym leaders, I wanted them done a certain way, moreso than any other leader.

Zigzagoon trainer, make it happen.

Meowth did it in the anime, it was hilarious!

:D

NO! No pokemon speaking english unless it's via telepathy.

...And you can't have a telepathic Zigzagoon!

Okay, cool. I was hoping you would.

Not yet, I don't think.

I might potentially RP that...

I'm trying to decide whether or not to RP a Gym Leader. Seeing as my primary character is on the Gym/League route, it could get complicated once he has to challenge said Gym Leader.

Anyways, yeah. If you want to be a part of this, Ermine, you'll have to be a trainer, breeder, etc.

lolbreeder


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Zigzagoon on 27 September, 2010, 12:17:04 am
breeder would be boring X1000

Trainer would be lame because I'd get haxed out of every win because I'd be using Zigzagoon and people would be like, no way my gachomp is way stronger he eats zigzagoons for breakfast and then I'll get pissed and Salty will laugh.

I think I'll make a profile topic for this, if people are cool with that.

Might be interested. Probably gonna lurk and maybe join in or something maybe. Anything I should keep in mind?

Not particularly, if you've read some of the issues we've discussed earlier, regarding the fighting and everything.

will totally do that when I have time/not at school

Since I'm not going to be a trainer (hoo boy conflict of interest right there) should I post a profile, or just keep everything under wraps?

Well, you can still be a trainer alongside your project. Maybe a profile for one of the recurring characters of Team Chaos. Like one who continues to show up even after their defeat.

I call dibs on the water Elite 4 member, if no-one has any objections.

None from me.

Nope. Come with any ideas while you were gone, ZF?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 10 December, 2010, 08:07:48 pm
No objections from me either. Haven't decided which NPC(s) I want, so no objections here.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 20 January, 2011, 02:54:54 pm
*blows dust off of cover*

So...

ZF, come up with any more ideas while I was away? It'd be nice to get a start on this... <_<


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

Damn, I really need to pull my finger out and start working on my character's profile...

You should. <_<

Post by: zeldafan42 on 20 January, 2011, 05:08:07 pm
Ah, no, sorry. My attention was drawn to other things....

Question: The American release of Black and White is two months away....should we revise our stance on 5th Gen Pokemon?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 20 January, 2011, 05:10:27 pm
Yeah, I should start too...

I'm fine either way. I have no plans to use them so far, so it wouldn't hurt me to include them.

I say sure. There was a leaked list of the official English names, so we should be fine.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 20 January, 2011, 05:27:22 pm
I wouldn't mind if we did. I may have to rethink my team a bit, though...


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 20 January, 2011, 06:47:48 pm
Well, only if it won't interfere too much with people's characters. I say the we could always have a second arc in which 5th gen pokemon start spreading to whatever region this is taking place in.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 20 January, 2011, 06:54:08 pm
It's a possiblity.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 20 January, 2011, 07:28:25 pm
That's possible. And like i said, I don't plan on getting any (at least not at the moment), so it wouldn't hurt my character.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: FrozenIndustry on 21 January, 2011, 10:18:36 am
I could always just make another character for my 5th gen team.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 21 January, 2011, 10:57:43 am
Maybe someone starting out on their journey rather than an existing former champion?


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?

Well, it'd be a separate character, but yeah.


Title: Re: Potential Pokemon RP?
Post by: Gargravarr on 21 January, 2011, 11:03:07 am
I know, I just meant that this could be an opportunity for you to make a character that's starting fresh, in addition to your former champion.
