Hello, and welcome to the world of POKéMON. My name is PROF. OAK. People call me the POKéMON PROF.

This world of ours is inhabited by many interesting and special creatures called POKéMON. POKéMON mean different thing to different people.

To some they are pets...
PokemonPets.png

To others they are friends...
PokemonFriends.png

But to many, they are our allies and protectors.
PokemonProtectors.png

The world of POKéMON is a dangerous place. Powerful and inscrutable monsters lurk in every forest, lake, and section of tall grass. Compared to POKéMON, many humans like you and me don't stand a chance.
DangerousPokemon.png

Luckily, we can count on our own POKéMON to help us. They fight on our behalf, and in return we lead them to victory, and train them to become stronger. It's a beneficial arrangement for the both of us!

While many people are content to stay in cities and towns, where they can keep safe from the POKéMON that roam the wild, others venture out into this wilderness, in search of fame, fortune, or knowledge.

We call these brave individuals POKéMON TRAINERS. They team up with friendly POKéMON to explore the dangerous areas of the world, risking life and limb in pursuit of their goals. Many admire these courageous people, and the POKéMON that accompany them in their journeys.

So, tell me, do you think you have what it takes to be a POKéMON TRAINER?

    Good to hear, if you need any help with mechanics or whether something would work well with the game, just ask. Alternately I've got my IM info in my profile.

    Edit: Also, planning on recruiting for about a week, give people time to get used to the system and post a character at their leisure. Might start earlier if the thread slows down a lot to kickstart things. If that's the case I'll definitely allow more people to join mid-game if they like.

    Keep remembering stuff I probably should've put in the OP but whatever.

    Your character needn't live in Pewter City, the Museum event is a BIG event which has drawn trainers from all over (you'll find out why :D). It's pretty possible the starting characters have traveled from another town, or even region, despite their low level. Possible reasons you know the other characters in the group include having to share a room in the city due to the lack of space with all the visitors, traveling with them from a nearby city (safety in numbers), or similar.

    Your starter can be a recent acquisition, a very old friend, or anywhere in between. They'll be one of the Pokemon that I as GM have no control over. Any wild pokemon you catch will be subject to loyalty, ie. you treat them like crap, they won't listen to you. Your starter is always under your direct control. This doesn't mean they have to like you though, it's perfectly fine to have an antagonistic relationship with your starter, it'll just be you who does the actions, not me.

    Well, he's only got one evolution, and that requires a stone to get to, typically, so it's not the most user-friendly choice. I would have no problem with a growlithe starter though.

    Something players might consider is including a list of 5 more pokemon that would make a "dream team" for them. I'll try and make sure those pokemon show up for capture at some point in the game.

    I don't see any reason why not.

    Also, on the off chance I get more people then I feel comfortable running a game for, I'll be judging submissions on quality first, how well the character will fit the game, how interesting it is, so on.

    So basically, take your time, ask questions, put some thought into it, and give me a fantastic character. Don't worry about being first or reserving posts.

    Also I see Squall has his character already, I'll take a look at it.

    Blarg lemme reserve a spot. I poke around on /tg/ a lot, so I'm familiar with the system

    You state that our starter is the one mon we have the highest amount of control over

    So, for example, if I wanted to roll a trainer from a family-owned breeding ranch chain that got a Dragon Dance/Outrage Larvitar as a 18th birthday present (or some other breeding project "extra", like an X-Scissor/Night Slash Nincada, a Spore/Seed Bomb Shroomish, etc.)

    Would that work?

    For that matter, how exactly do stat-ups work? Is it similar to most d20 systems where you get a fixed amount of stat-ups upon level-up and assign them to your stats (in this case, in accordance with the Base Stat Relation)?

His best friend and rival for the position was the gym leader's daughter, another dedicated water trainer. By the time they'd become adults, Hero had developed feelings for her but his advances were spurned. After a few years of tenuous friendship, Hero had enough; traded his Horsea for a young Charmander, bought a Pokédex and left Cerulean for the first time.

    Alright, looking at Squall's character.

    Abilities are good, he started with 6s across the board and added 29 points (28 for level zero + 1 for level one)

    Messed up a bit with his features, at level 1 you have only one feature, Squall chose 2, Researcher and Random Knowledge. Remember that class features count as a feature, you have to purchase them.

    Also noticed you added an inventory, good initiative! If you think your character should have something (like a rock hammer for a geologist) go ahead and add it. As for pokeballs and pokedexes, I'll dole out an appropriate amount of those before we begin play.

    Finally, Squall's character actually gets a few weapon features for free. Because of his Class, Researcher he gets Blunt Weapons User and Pole Arm user for free. Because he has an INT higher then 14 he also gets Throwing Weapons User.

    I'm going to assume for the first part of your post that you're joking. I don't really want to encourage that kind of powergaming, even though this system has many, many opportunities for it. If you are looking up things on Smogon for this game you are doing something wrong.

    For the stat ups, yes pretty much. Every time a pokemon levels they get one point to put in any stat that wouldn't mess up the base relation. ie. their highest stat will always be their highest stat no matter what, their lowest will always be lowest and all the ones in between will hold the same ranking.

    Pretty much, when your pokemon levels I could save time by telling you which stats were available for boosting. People seem to just have too much trouble parsing the info.

    I suppose, it'll be a wee bit weak due to stats and movepool but you can finagle things to help him out with the proper features. Shouldn't be a major deterrent.

    I'm a bit confused about the Class Features. Does taking one raise and lower certain stats, or am I reading this wrong?

    JacquesCousteau, you appear to have used 41 points for your character's abilities instead of 29.

    Again, all your stats start at 6, you can raise them with 28+1 points at a one-for-one basis, to a max of 18.

    So if you spent them on as few stats as possible you would end up with 18, 18, 6, 6, 6, 6

    If you spread them out as much as possible you'd get 11, 11, 11, 11, 10, 10

    Edit: Thank you, squall.

  • SquallSquall hap cloud Registered User regular

    yes, a base class raises two stats by one point, and lowers one stat by two points

    advanced classes raise one stat by one point, but you don't have access to those yet

    you can eventually have up to three class features, whether it be three base classes, two base classes and one advanced, or one base and two advanced.

    My character is in post #4. Pyrrhus Flynn, the Capture Specialist.

    No idea what weapon proficiencies he starts with. Also I have a feeling that a notebook computer might be too expensive for him to start with, but he's a techie, and that's what I think a techie would bring in lieu of a map and compass. But I also don't know how much starting money he should have so there we go. Maybe he can afford five computers!

    Also I assume basic necessities like a canteen, food, etc. needn't be on that list?

    Pokemon Shawn hopes to catch

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    Your character looks perfect, Terrendos. A netbook computer is fine, plenty of trainers find carrying one around is worth the trouble, others prefer to just use their pokedex, pokegear, or (imported) Poketch.

    Speaking of which, your character gets one of those for free, whichever you prefer. Also lets say 5 regular pokeballs and a Great ball. And I guess P$2,000 cash, why not. Here's a list of some items and their typical costs. Stuff like camping equipment, a normal weapon of a type (no guns in pokemon btw) you can use and anything your character could reasonably expected to have is free, don't make me regret that decision though.

    Starting off with a poke ball tool box worth 2,500 P$ is a bit much but I'll allow it since your starting feature requires it. No worries.

    Also very nice description of your pokemon. Everyone else you are absolutely free to define what gender, ability, and nature and so on for your starter. If you don't I'll try and pick something good for them.

    I shorted myself a couple of Pokeballs and P$1000 in exchange for the Tool Box. I don't want to seem like I'm being greedy. And since the PokeGear accomplishes basically everything that I was thinking he'd need the computer for (GPS/maps and external communication) I just took that instead. I'll have him buy a Pokedex later.

    Pokegear basically is a pokedex, it just has a built in phone.

    Lemme see, pokedexes...

    A lot of technology in the pokemon world takes advantage of wireless data transfer. Pokedexes (and related pokemon identification systems like poketchs and pokegears) use wireless technology to scan for and read pokemon energy signatures. Similar, more powerful systems are in place in pokecenters for transmitting a pokemon's data from place to place.

    Pokedexes have become an immense part of the Trainer culture, after the initial testing conducted by Trainer Red such things have become relatively cheap, at least for the value they offer. By scanning a pokemon with their pokedex, a trainer can bring up a wealth of information on the creature. To be specific, they can access every note, comment, or statistic ever uploaded to the 'Dex system, from the research of the most highly regarded scientists to the lowest of School Boys. When a pokemon is captured it is also synced with the Pokedex, taking relevant data, assigning it an id in case of theft, and adding it to the database of caught pokemon.

    Much to the delight of Trainers, these stats are carefully kept track of. Your pokedex can show how many pokemon you've seen, how many species you've captured, and much more. It's become common practice for Trainers to sync their Pokedexes, so they can compare their personal records and read any research the other has submitted. Trainers who have seen or captured a variety of species get a lot of kudos from their colleagues.

    It might be because I fried my brain looking at these rules, but how much money do we start with? And how much do Pokedexes and such thing cost?

    This is really tempting. I'll give it a read and see about putting a character together because...

    To catch them all is my real test, TO TRAIN THEM IS MY CAAAUSE

    I'm an enormous nerd.

    I am bad at organizing rules, basically, not your fault.

    You get a free pokedex or pokedex analogue, 5 free pokeballs, 1 free greatball, and 2,000 P$

    Other equipment, within reason is free, stuff like camping equipment, a serviceable weapon, tools related to your profession, etc. etc.

    If you wanted to spend a bit, you can find a small items list here.
