I will be online for an hour-ish tonight from 10-11.
I'm excited to get this ball rolling again.

I did receive your character sheet. Everything looks good at first glance, but I need to run your Pokemon choices through my system to make sure they are all available in your area (in North America at least).

I fell behind on my chores yesterday, and I'm about to have to get ready for work today.

I will give final approval after work today (or tomorrow morning if I don't get around to it tonight.)

I would like more people to post in the IC section before I respond to Wayward's last post, but if nobody posts in the IC section by tomorrow morning, I'll go ahead and reply.

I picked them because they are all similar to critters in the area: ciceda come to Kentucky every four years or so. Ekans was the closest I could find to the cottonhead. The patrat is based on all the groundhogs we have. They're mostly in parks and other cities but they're abundant because people have stopped killing them and they reproduce quickly.

I hope they're in Kentucky but I'm willing to change any pokemon that need to be, obviously

So, I just did the check, and unfortunately, all three of you Pokemon aren't located nearby. Especially the Ekans and Nincada. I placed those two Pokemon more based on there evolved forms (Arbok being a Cobra, and the Nincada line taking inspiration from Ninjas). Both of these Pokemon are found in Asia, and Ekans are also found in Africa.

Patrat on the other hand is found just a couple states West of Kentucky in the Great Plains area of the USA. So it is entirely possible that some ventured to Kentucky or that your character visited that area and caught one while he was there.

Here is a list of Pokemon that are within Kentucky and surrounding states. This is a little wider radius than I normally do, but it gives you a great selection I hope...

Bulbasaur (Uncommon) Forests
Caterpie (Common) Forests / Grass
Weedle (Common) Forests / Grass
Pidgey (Uncommon) Anywhere
Rattatta (Common) Anywhere
Psyduck (Uncommon) Rivers
Magnemite (Rare) Cities
Ghastly (Rare) Night / Graveyards
Spinarak (Common) Forests
Snubull (Common) Parks / Grass / Forests
Heracross (Uncommon) Forests
Smeargle (Uncommon) Anywhere
Zigzagoon (Uncommon) Forests / Grass / Suburbs
Sableye (Common) Night / Caves
Mawile (Common) Night / Caves
Shuppet (Uncommon) Night / Suburbs
Bidoof (Uncommon) Rivers
Shinx (Uncommon) Mountains / Forests
Buneary (Uncommon) Where the Bunnies are.
Carnivine (Common) Forests
Rotom (Uncommon) Cities / Suburbs
Snivy (Rare) Forests / Grass
Drilbur (Uncommon) Mountains / Grass / Forests
Timburr (Rare) Forests
Scraggy (Common) Night / Cities
Deerling (Common) Forests / Grass
Litwick (Rare) Night / Cities / Suburbs
Rufflet (Uncommon) Forests / Mountains
Swirlix (Common) Cities / Suburbs
Clauncher (Rare) Rivers
Helioptile (Uncommon) Grass / Mountains
Togedemaru (Common) Cities

That's a major bummer, I thought long and hard on those. Anyway, changing out nincada is easy. The gimmick was just a general bug Pokemon. I'd like a heracross but the idea was the first Pokemon he caught was something easy. Let's make it a Beedrill and say he caught it as a Weedle.

If I can't have Ekans I'll look for a similarly scary Pokemon. The idea was it was stronger than his trainer is capable of taming. Suggestions? Maybe a ghastly or a sableye, I'd like some suggestions before I change that.

Anyway, I'll get right on that. After I do, am I good to go?

I think Ghastly is a good choice based on what you said. Or even Timburr (which doesn't look as scary, but is intimidating all the same).

The end of your character sheet kind of makes it sound like you're starting out at the very beginning, but you are starting with three Pokemon on your team. So where exactly are we joining your character on his adventure? Is he about to face off against his first gym leader? Are gyms and such even going to be his main focus?

I'm just providing some things to think about. Most importantly, I want to know WERE (the exact location) your character is starting. You can go ahead and post in the IC section whenever you like.

@Balthazar007 I was hoping to have this be a little after he's started his adventure and I did intend for him to be getting ready for his first gym.

As for where I start, I haven't thought about that. I reckon that I'd want to be closer to where the other players might be, but I don't know where that is.

The other players are spread out in the USA. If you click on the picture of the globe in the first IC post, you'll be taken to a Google map with everyone's location displayed.

Alright, how about I start in Springfeild, Missouri? Say he's going west?

If we're trying to get everyone together, Send me to Pittsburg and I will make my way to the coast.

Sorry, I thought I replied to this days ago, but it looks like I didn't hit send...

While I think it would be good to have some of the characters meet up, that has not been discussed yet. I suggest you reach out to the others directly, and see who would be interested in teaming up.
