    How much conversation and roleplay can there be when the pokes can only say their name?

    I did the killing thing cause I wanted a darker side to Pokémon, but if you guys want it to be captured then I can do it too, the only problem arises when one person is voted to be 'killed', what happens to them?

    I've never seen a dead pokemon in the series. May be a new thing.

    But corpses shouldn't return to their pokeballs.

    There have been plenty of dead Pokemon in the manga.

    On a further note, my justification for the killings by Team Rocket would be explained by the Rocketeers simply trying to spread disorder, the 27 players are the council including the spies, and to kill enough of them would mean that the lesser Pokémon lose their leaders, and the spies could then use a majority vote to make the others flee in a particular direction. Right into a trap, the way I see it Team Rocket would sacrifice more than a dozen Pokémon in return for hundreds of villagers.

    I don't know, it still doesn't feel right to me.

    The killed Pokemon could be exiled from the village. It works about as well and could actually even be more tragic.

    Well, maybe the population stays steady? Each time a marowak(spelling?) dies a cubone is born? So it keeps a 1-for-1 trade?

    I really don't know much about Pokemon; I'll read up on it. From what I've read, Entei seems a little insanely powerful, but I don't really have a good comparison. If he's no good, can someone recommend a Fire type or similarly aggressive Pokemon that's not uber or Charmander?
    Well in the game itself, Entei is not too good compared to the other two dogs, but as a Pokemon based on appearance and cool factor, Entei is in my top ten.

    Other good fire types: Arcanine, Ninetales, Fire Monkey, Blaziken.

    And besides, it's not like this game is using game stats in any way.

    My only worry is how to roleplay such a creature. Wikipedia only gives me so much info.
    Entei seems like a very noble Pokemon. He's quite courageous in the 3rd movie when he is protecting that girl. I would do it as if I were one of the people that takes responsibility for others and is sort of a leader to many.

    Honetly I have no clue how to roleplay a freaking magnet. I don't even have a gender. What am I supposed to do? Magneton always comes across to me as a very logical thinker. He's the book smarts of the Pokemon. I guess I will just have to figure it out as I go.

    I think ironic roleplaying would be fucking funnier.

    E.g. a Water pokemon that can't swim.
