@wisteria Oh wow that doctor guy really does look just like Asa! That's perfect!

@Ryik Awesome song, I like the calm feel that slowly becomes more intense, it's a nice contrast to the typical frantic battle music. Definitely fits Troy.

I often think of Pokemon trainers as having a general theme and a battle theme. Netty's general theme is the one in her introductory post, while her battle theme... I think it's got to be this.

@LuckyBlackCat nicely posted! edit: love Netty's song too!

@Ryikthat song is awesome! and yeah, I actually hadn't realized you linked the Battle Legend class in Troy's profile but thats a nice touch! and i'll definitely keep that in mind

also, I think I may edit the post before yours and include Mincinno's ability+ moves. I know in the games you don't see abilities or moves until after you catch the pokemon, but I don't really see why they can't be scanned beforehand. And in the games, you can catch pokemon so quickly it doesn't matter, but in an rp, I think the process needs to be streamlined.

This all said, I'm going to say for trainer battles or pokemon competitions, you can't pre-scan opposing pokemon with a pokedex. let me know if you guys have any questions or objections! I'm still trying to figure out the incorporation of these little puzzles and tabletop elements into this roleplay lol

i'll probably be able to respond sometime this weekend.

edit: on that note, rolled for Minccino's ability + moves. Minccino didn't get Skill Link but remember there's Ability Capsules to change abilities!

This would definitely be Zaria's general theme.


Her battle theme would probably be something like this.


@LuckyBlackCat@wisteriaI also hope it's okay that I mentioned school food being expensive. If I'm wrong about that though, I can certainly change it.

I was also wondering if Zaria's Magnet could learn a specific move. Magnemite learns the move Magnet Bomb in gen 7 at level 11, but I think they took it out in sword and shield. I was just wondering if I could add it to Magnet's move list, but if not, then that's alright with me.

Apologies for not posting yet! It's been super busy on my end.

@jujubeI like the songs! Magnet Bomb is fine to add. And as for the school food being expensive, that fits fine into the narrative. It's definitely an expensive school to go to, after all.

That would definitely be Asa in his twenties. As for a theme, not sure. Possibly the pokemon centre theme heh.

I don’t know what Tim’s battle theme is. Probably something cute.

and there's a post.

so I'm going to try to have a lot of these sort of puzzles in this rp. (for example, the puzzle going on right now is: how do you lure out the nimble and evasive Minccino to a specific area to battle?)

in these puzzles, there's usually one or two ways I set as a solution, and I'll always try to hint at that solution. but I also try to be flexible, so if a player comes up with a viable solution different than the one I sort of preset for the situation, I'll do a dice roll to see if the player's plan worked based on how viable I thought it was.

in this scenario, I had a specific solution in mind for example. however, troy came up with a different plan than i anticipated. so I basically rolled to see if Minccino would fall for Troy's trick. Mincinno got a pretty low roll, so they fell for troy's plan. however, if the roll hadn't been high, the Mincinno would have ignored the pokeball and I would have tried to hint at a different solution. or the player could just try a plan of their own, and I'd roll to see how their plan fared again.

that's pretty much the approach I'm going to be taking for these sort of puzzles/scenarios that the player needs to figure out. to summarize: there's always a solution or two that I have preset in these scenarious, but players can also take their own approach to solving something. hopefully that all made sense. let me know if anyone has any questions.

you're also definitely allowed to ask questions about the puzzles in ooc. if you want more specifics, just ask. I'll try help without giving too much away haha

For anyone wondering, the odds of flinching after 5 hits with King's Rock/Razor Fang are about 41%.
The odds of flinching from Serene Grace Air Slash is 60%.

@wisteria If I may request for future reference, (I don't need to get it now or anything) I think it would be cuter to give Minccino a King's Rock to wear as a crown rather than having it carry a Razor Fang around, which it would probably just hide within its fur. I imagine a King's Rock would fit pretty snugly around one of Cinccino's huge ears.


By the way, how much would an ability capsule cost?

It's tempting to spam them a bit later on, if possible, so Shuckle can switch on and off of Contrary Shell Smash, since Contrary is incompatible with my favorite Shuckle set.

@Ryikinteresting! serene Grace is such a busted ability lol Your minccino/cinccino can definitely get a King's Rock Crown. that sounds absolutely adorable

as for the Ability Capsules... They're actually not sold anywhere. In this RP, they're a prototype item that hasn't been released to the market yet. YC will need to make friends with a certain NPC to obtain them.

If you've ever heard of the Persona series, they do a mechanic called Social Link, which is essentially what I'm trying to incorporate in this RP. In Persona, the more you hang out with an NPC character, the better your stats can become or they'll give you stuff or augment your battle capabilities in some way. Since we don't really have stats in this rp, specific NPCs will be handing out items or giving your characters other types of augments/ valuable information.

Me and LuckyBlackCat are still sussing out the details, but I should have those details written up and incorporated into the OOC Post rules in about... two-three weeks or so.

This weekend may be kind of busy for me, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get a post out by Sunday. I will try though

Posted! :)

Also, I'd like to finish up the first IC day in about 5 -10 more posts... hopefully. And then we can timeskip a little further ahead. And let's try to aim for posting around once every 7-10 days please! I love the momentum this rp has, and I'm eager to get started on the main story more.

let me know if you have any questions. Thank you :)

As long as Tim can put up with him, yes, and I think Asa could mature into a fine husbando as well.

I don't want to post too much, so I shall post after you have responded.

I controlled Minccino slightly, because I figured that any other course of action would just loop back around towards this outcome and this seemed like one of better ways of handling the encounter. Let me know if I should change it or something @wisteria.
