So this is a basic interest check really and I won't cover too much in this post in any great detail, I just don't want to go overboard if the interest isn't there. I currently have another interest check open for a Resident Evil RP, whichever gets the most interest i'll run with. If you have any questions then feel free to ask and i'll answer when I get a chance. Anyway, lets begin:

Plot
The story will be based around a group of late teens/young adults setting out on a Pokemon adventure in the search of gym badges, glory, wealth, knowledge or whatever it is that makes them tick. In addition to each persons individual goals, there is a threat stewing that could threaten not just all Pokemon, but all life as everyone knows it.

Basic Character Details
โŠ™ No canon character PC's although you can create a character who is related to someone from the original series
โŠ™ Character age ranges must be 16+
โŠ™ Characters will need to be sensible. By that I mean no anthromorphs, characters with horns etc
โŠ™ I encourage people to be creative with their backstories. Most people are likely going to choose a character who wants to be the best Pokemon trainer in all the land, what I want to see is different reasons as to why.

Setting Details
โŠ™ Since the days of Ash Ketchum decades ago, the world has changed. Pokemon breeding programs have resulted in Pokemon no longer being specific to certain regions, this is thanks to the Oak Institute. The institute is responsible for cataloguing and monitoring the wider Pokemon population.
โŠ™ The RP will take place in the Kanto region, pretty much following the original path taken by Ash Ketchum to reach the Elite Four. Assuming people stick around long enough, the "end" will feature a Pokemon tournament with PvP (NPC's to fill the spaces) in which the winner is announced as Kanto Region Champion.
โŠ™ If people wish to continue on after the Kanto Tournament we will vote on which region follows.
โŠ™ Team Rocket, Team Magma, Team Skull and the like were all disbanded over a decade ago, leaving a void for some other villainous team to step into the space left by them.

RP Details
โŠ™ Generic forum rules will apply.
โŠ™ While there isn't a hard age limit for people taking part, mild and infrequent use of profanity is allowed.
โŠ™ Romances are perfectly acceptable but only for characters with a minimum age of 18. All usual forum rules regarding romances apply.
โŠ™ There will be a dibs list on 6 Pokemon per player. Once all player CS' have been posted, I will have each person send me their 5 preferred Pokemon of choice. 1 other Pokemon will be chosen at character creation and is free to roam outside their pokeball at all times. The list will be numbered in order of preference, 1 to 5, and will determine the 'dibs list'. This will be done is the fairest way I can think of which is as follows:

โŠ™ As people send their lists they are given a number in ascending order starting from 1.
โŠ™ Once I have received everyones lists I will start comparing them.
โŠ™ Once all players #1 choices have been set, I will move onto #2 choices, then #3 choices etc.
โŠ™ If anyone has duplicates I will unforunately need the person who has the highest player number to change. The only instance a player with a higher player number will not have to change is if they rank it higher than the other person in their list. In this case the lower numbered player would need to change.

โŠ™ Pokemon not on the dibs list can be be caught by anyone in the wild, however each person will be limited to 1 catch per week to stop people spamming. These Pokemon are then added to the dibs list.
โŠ™ The only exception to the dibs list is Pokemon that have different evolution options. The perfect example of this is Eevee. In theory 9 players could each have an Eevee to start. Each would have dibs on one of the eeveelutions with the last player keeping standard Eevee.
โŠ™ Standard battles versus wild Pokemon and generic trainers will give players free reign to make them as easy or difficult as they like. However, gym battles will take place using Pokemon battle simulator or if GM free time allows it, Pokemon Showdown. If anyone wants to have a friendly PvP battle in story I would suggest using the simulator or Showdown as it can give you a bit of guidance of how even or one sided a battle is.


I initially had no intention of creating a CS until OOC but out of sheer boredom more than anything I have created the below.



Feel free to ask any questions here or if you would rather, PM me.

You had my interest, and then lost it with the dibs list. Why is that necessary? And why is capturing Pokemon so restricted? Why is is multiple people having the same Pokemon a problem. That happens sometimes. Roll with it.

Also, can't we just RP the Pokemon battles? Is it really necessary to use a simulator? Using a simulator is not the same as actually writing out a battle. If I'm using a simulator for Pokemon battles, I may as well just play the games.

What's up with the giant Pokeballs?

The only reason I can see for the dibs list is that with a limited number of people having duplicate Pokemon becomes a lot more egregious; you end up with less variety. I'm ok with it. It would be annoying not to get the Pokemon you want, but with 800+ Pokemon everyone should be able to have a team they are comfortable with.

I'd prefer RPing the battles as well. I've done Pokemon RP's before and I know some people use damage calculators to get a rough idea how much damage each attack does, but still RP the battle otherwise. Fully simulating the battle in Showdown would take a lot away from the battles and doesn't account for dodging, use of the environment, outside variables or the inventive strategies that you can add to a written Pokemon battle. Also that simulator is terrible, you can't set movelists or anything.

I'm tentatively interested in this. I have a couple other RP's that may mean I have too much on my plate, but so far they aren't taking up much of my time.

What's up with the giant Pokeballs?

1. I have been in RP's with dibs lists previously and have never seen issues arise. I just don't want to see 6 players all end up with the same pokemon. I don't think it's too much to ask. If people post and have issue with the dibs list, then the compromise would be to lower the number 6.
2. Restrictions on catching Pokemon is more a tool to help writers develop their characters relationship with a smaller amount of Pokemon, instead of just catching loads and storing them, never to be used. It also will mean that character development becomes more of a focus over everyone post being a hunt for Pokemon.
3. The simulators are there to give the result of battles, everything else is up to the writers. I don't want to end up with people arguing about who would beat who.
4. They are not giant on my PC, however Captain Hindsight, I didn't factor in mobile phones or smaller screen resolutions.

I'm sorry you feel the way you do but that's just the way she goes.

@King Cosmos
I appreciate the tentative interest.

In terms of the battling, I have just had bad experiences in previous RP's where people refuse to lose or accept that their character can be beaten (not unique to Pokemon RP's). That was the whole purpose of the generator and Showdown, just to give a result to avoid arguing. Roleplaying freely in PvP can get messy if there are two stubborn people involved so just wanted people to have something that gave them a pre-set result that they could embellish as much as they want.

Can we get the code for the CS?

Also, what are the rules on choosing a starter?

I'll post the code properly assuming we reach OOC. If you want though you could click the RAW link of my post above yours and get it from there.

As for starter rules no legendary, mythic, pseudo legendary. I was also thinking of restricting it to Pokemon with two evolutions like starters normally do.

One thing I forgot to mention earlier is that there will be no mega evolutions. I'll write some fluff about why not later, but in reality, I've just never been a fan.

@King CosmosI wouldn't take the CS RAW code just yet. Just turned my phone on and the fonts have gone crazy. I'll need to optimise it tomorrow.

I might be interested in this since I've wanted to do a Pokemon RP for a while. It does seem a bit overly structured though (I prefer RPing battles as well), so we'll see how it goes.

I'd be interested, but if we're using showdown, I can't make custom moves. A lot of pokemon have natural abilities way stronger than their actual moves. Example, Gardevoir has a cosmic eraser. Why not use that instead of stuff like moon blast? Or have Celesteela just jump on someone, point her thrusters at them, and try to take off?

Seems to be a fair bit of interest, albeit at different levels. I'll look at getting something up very soon OOC wise. If things go well could be in the next few hours, otherwise it'll be tomorrow.

Guys the OOC has gone up so feel free to go take a look here.

I have added/adjusted rules and such so it will be worth giving them the once over. Feel free to critique what is there or give suggestions, i'm always open to ideas.

Also I have posted my characters CS in the OOC post as an example of expectations on what to put in each part of the CS. It doesn't need to be much more than what i've put but feel free to do so if you wish. As for my Pokemon choice, If anyone else wants to claim Axew that's perfectly fine, I do totally understand that the lil' guy may be a temptation for some of you.

The link is here for the OOC again, just in case you missed the first one.

Good point, that's what happens when you rush . I'll edit it in a second.
