All right now people if anyone's got any questions, now's the time to ask. We're just waiting on the people who made reservations to post them up and then we can start! Now here's one question that I saw turned up, Do our legendaries still have powers in their human forms? My honest opinion is that they may have a slight power, ex.) Articuno can survive in really cold water/ temperatures without catching hypothermia, Mew can still read minds and send telepathic messages, little things like that, but if they try to use their powers to a larger extent, it puts them in extreme pain.

And here's my one really important rule, since we had trouble with that in the sign-ups:

NO ARGUING! DO IT VIA PM! Thank you!

When is this going to start?

5th April 2006, 9:48 PM
Well, bonjour to you to flygonrulz. I don't know when it's going to start, I could start it right now if you and Innerflame (she's the other one who asked) want, it doesn't matter to me right now. I'd rather wait until more of our RPG members are online so I can officially announce it.

5th April 2006, 10:02 PM
You'll start this now or so help me I'll throw such a tantrum.

I think it would be a good idea for people to post what their powers entail so that they can be given approval before using them. So, for example I was thinking for my character: Nemo (Jirachi) can sense moods and desires and produce small objects from nowhere.

Of course, that's subject to Shy-shy's approval.

InnerFlame
5th April 2006, 10:03 PM
It up to you if you when you want to start I was just wondering... I can wait forever until the RPG dies for it start. I actually waited about two month of the Code Lyoko RPG to start.

Since we only have a little of our power don't we need like normal pokemon to help us out? We won't be able to protect ourself from wild pokemon and such if we decide to travel out of the town/city.

Musical Mayhem
5th April 2006, 10:05 PM
Not_Awake: please don't call me shy-shy, it sounds like a name my mother would call me. Your power is fine. I'll post mine too and you guys can tell me if it's okay: Well you see Articuno can survive in extremely cold temperatures, in just a pair of shorts and a tank top if she wanted to without catching hypothermia.
All right I'm going to start with the posting and stuff. I'll post the link here when I'm done.

Innerflame: I never thought of that. Yep you guys feel free to post a Pokemon you're gonna travel with, just don't make it Ooberly strong since I may remind us, we are the Oobers, ^_^

Bounjour Torkie! have l'expresso *gives french cofee* Well, it is a cafe...

Yep, those are called NPCs, or non-playable characters. You should post here first though, just so we know who they are. You don't have to though, so really it's up to you.

Musical Mayhem

True, so perhaps you should post that sign up that you PMed me, just to get everyone else on track.


This just in from Psychic, thank you so much.


Ummm, you're kinda an amateur at RPing right now (not to offend) so I just want to bring something to your attention:

Right now, the RP is only starting. You didn't give us any guiuldlines or anything, so we don't know where to start. That is to say, we need to know the general directtion the RP is going right now, because we don't quite know what to do.
Fine, your character is just metting up with her pertner at the beginning; fine. But what about the rest of us? Is the current goal to find our partner? For all the Legendaries to meet up in one place? Just specify in your first post what everyone should be doing and what their goal is.


Just a suggestion.

Human Name: Balthazar
Legendary Form: What are you talking about? I am a ledgend, I pulled a force out of the mess H.K left!
Side: Dark
Age: 24 or 46. You choose what you fear the most.
Gender: Male, obviosly.
Partner: Ha! I am in charge of the Elite Force of D., I don't need a partner!
Location: Honnen, and I plan to stay there unless the information I deserve is elsewhere.
Personality: *From observer* Cold and cruel, raised by a father that abandoned his work after the downfall due to H.K., Balthazar is ruthless. He will stop at nothing short of murder, but only because he nightly dreams of compassion from a mother he never had. But once he awakens, this is forgotten. Determined to succeed where his father failed, he stole a Totodile from Proffesor Elm once and raised it to be a terrible machine of destruction. So far, The Eliete Force of D. has not fallen to the clever hands of the "Human Kelcon", but that can only be wondered why...
Description: *also from observer* In charge of a growing force of terror, Balthazar has an amazing ability to keep his forces not only hidden from the public view but also in control. He has mastered the art of lying and practiced it often as a teenager. It is rumored that he once met and was defeated by the Human Kelcon but didn't know it was her. She is his mortal enemy, and although he has not killed yet, he would probably slay her on sight. He desires the ledgendaries in order to control the last remaining obstacle in his way; the ordinary populous and the infamous Human Kelcon. Unfortunately, The ledgendaries are in hiding, and only one human knows where they are. Cassandra is also unfortunatley wanted by an opposing party that wants the same information. The battle between the two forces of evil is remarkably often and extremely vicious.
This is Balthazar. He is one of the NPCs because he will not be an active character. Please do not try to use him because he is part of my fan-fic.

Musical Mayhem
6th April 2006, 12:23 AM
Yep, i'm using a little of Torkie's fic in my RPG and she's doing the opposite. So yeah Balthazar's just kind of a reference.

Do the legendaries know each other well enough to recognize another's human form?

Xtra
6th April 2006, 12:33 AM
Sorry this took a while.

Human Name:Josh
Legendary Form:Zapdos
Side:Light
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Partner:Thunder the Jolteon
Location:Goldenrod City
Personality:Zapdos is usually kind, but can be angered easily. He is usually in control of his actions, never striking out at anyone unless he needs to. he seems a bit off to some, since he is still adjusting to the human world and it's ways. He misses his days soaring over the lands, and can sometimes be seen gazing up at the sky. Also, he enjoys thunderstorms, but will avoid it if it's raining.

Description:Josh is about average for his "age" , standing about 5 feet 8 inches. His skin is white, and he is usually seen wearing something yellow or with lightning bolts. he has brown hair, hasel eyes, and wears glasses (though he doiesn't need them). He has a belt with a pokeball clip, though the only pokemon he has is his Jolteon.

History:After getting wind of the collar that the scientistscreated, he made himself look human and went to Goldenrod City. There, he was able to land a job as an electritian. He figurede that this was the best way to travel around Kanto and find the other legendaries.

While on the job, he came across an injured Eevee, and helped him. He also found a Thunderstone and used it on the Eevee, making him a Jolteon. He named the Jolteon Thunder, and Thunder is currently the only one that knows his secret.

It depends on what your legendary looks like. For Suicine, since old habits don't seem to want to go away, it would be easy, for others it may be hard. The Legendaries may be able to know each other from what they look like or how they act depending on how much they've talked. Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, or any other set like that, would know each other better than if Articuno met Raikou. Do you understand?

:d Perhaps strong mental accuity? Something along those lines.

I think Suicune here is a strong runner and swimmer, but that's about the gist of it. I don't want an overly-strong character. Yannowmsayin?

Xtra: that's fine, I noticed that in your first post, you posted right after me.
Dex: I don't know Deoxys powers, I saw the movie, but I payed more attention to Plusle, Minun, Munchlax, and the Hot dog cart. ^_^
Exxthus: what's mental acuity mean?

Exxthus
6th April 2006, 12:46 AM
An acute mind, as in... sharp perception, I suppose. Sly, sharp, intelligent; make of it what you will. :p Since Deoxys is a Psychic type, I simply figured that something to do with the mind would be appropriate.

Musical Mayhem
6th April 2006, 12:50 AM
Aaah, I gotchya. That would be a good idea.

Dex
6th April 2006, 1:01 AM
Hmm, You have a sharp mind yourself, Exxthus. That's a good idea. But What about all 3 forms of Deoxys? Would that effect the body in some way?

Musical Mayhem
6th April 2006, 1:02 AM
hmmm, Dex you've picked a complicated character. I suppose that would effect it as well.

Dex
6th April 2006, 1:09 AM
Complicated Mind, too. :)

I guess you have two options: one, pick your favorite Deoxys form and have him stick with that.

two: change forms and then i don't know.

Do you know how often I hear that? If I must narrow my vocabulary, then please let me know. It seems to freak people out that I speak this way normally. >>


I guess you have two options: one, pick your favorite Deoxys form and have him stick with that.
Agreed. What form was Deoxys in before the transformation? Normal, attack, defense, or speed?


EDIT: I'm going to log off for a while. I must wait for FR, anyways.

Dex
6th April 2006, 1:23 AM
Uh.. Your Vocab is normal to me...

And I would say Speed or Attack.

Musical Mayhem
6th April 2006, 1:25 AM
Good choice, I find Defense sort of fat, but that's just my opinion ^_^ I'd say if you want to be extremely strong and dangerous pick attack. If you want to be fast and thin, pick speed.

InnerFlame
6th April 2006, 10:39 PM
Oh wait I have an question for you... um... what am I suppose to do? I'm on the dark side so do I just look for other legendary for the scientist or do I have my own mission since I really don't want to be on their side.

Will I become more obedient and/or agressive the longer I'm under the influence of the bracelet?

Musical Mayhem
6th April 2006, 10:43 PM
You will become more obideint the longer they have the bracelet on you, because they'll figure out what makes you obey them the most, so you want to find the other legendaries, to get the bracelet off, but the scientists will force you to do terrible things to other Pokemon, and the Legendaries, like kill them or put bracelets on them too.

InnerFlame
6th April 2006, 10:52 PM
So I'm pretty much like losing my freewill and my ability to what I want. Do they have me wire so they know where I am and what I am doing?

The bracelet will inflict pain on me if I tamper with it and if some else does right?

Sorry for all the questions but like they said if your going to do something do it right.

Musical Mayhem
6th April 2006, 10:57 PM
Yes you're basicly losing your freewill. The bracelet has a tracking device in it, since it uses radio waves to work properly. The bracelet will hurt you if you refuse to obey it, or do something it doesn't want you to.It's okay about all of the questions, I really don't mind.

7th April 2006, 12:39 AM
o.O Guys, some of you have no idea how much you're SPAMing. Some of your posts are just grettings, and no matter where it is on SPPf, such a post is still considered to be Stupid, Pointeless and Annoying. Post ONLY if you have something important to comment on, suggest or if the problem is so big all RPers need to hear about it (we DO have the PM system)!

I know this thread is for questions/concerns we have, but some of these problems you should be able to figure out yourselves.
For example, Dex, with Deoxys, I'd advise that it is always in normal form and it can not change unless it is in true Pokémon form. This means no extreme abilities in the way of attack, defense or speed, mostly because such powers are a bit too powerful, and not very human-like in the first place.



Also, Xtra, Sign Ups belong ONLY in the Sign Up thread and should be nowhere else. ShyPikachu, you should not allow people who break rules as simple as that into an RP. Of course, such a thing is your decision, but any Mod who sees a Sign Up in the Café won't be happy, and again, there's the threat of the thread being closed. I HIGHLY suggest the Sigh Up is deleted and reposted in the actual Sign Up forum to avoid such problems.

One other thing I want to point out, to Xtra in particular, is thatt you can't suddenly make up rules and such unless approved by the GM (ShyPikachu). For instance:

While fixing one of the fuse boxes, Josh felt himself geting a bit weak. While in human form, all the legendaries need a boost from their element to keep their strenth up. Otherwise, they'll be come as weak as a normal human.
Not ONCE did ShyPikachu ever say anything about the Legendaries needing such boosts while in human form, and you can't make up things like that. The GM is in charge of making ALL decisions regarding the RP, and this was not one of them. There was never a mention of Legendaries becoming weak in their forms, as it was basically pre-decided that such powerful creatures were perfectly fine without them.
I honestly can't believe nobody noticed this before now. -_- This is how you know we aren't doing too well, especially when half the RP posts belong to the same few people. >>



Just thought I'd post to bring these things to everyone's attention before someone gets in trouble and there are further misunderstandings.

You don't really have to be so serious, Griff was just being happy, if you think that this is spam, you should seriously look at some of the topics under miscolanious discussion. Seriously, there was one that said the great thing about today, and people actually TALKED about it until a mod closed it.

You never can tell with those kind of people... And it does make common sense. If something you liked to do was run by a few people who were new to it but had a great idea, and some people just kept screwing up, you might get frustrated enough that you would ask for it to be shut down, because you couldn't bear to take the rose with the thorns. However, it could come a little more kindly....

That's okay Griff. I would report my RPG if everyone was continually making short posts, but I just worked too hard for that. cdra i'm sorry if I made any short posts on your RPG, I don't have much time to spare on this old thing.

Actually, I was going to shake a finger over that, too. Not just because the posts were ridiculously short, but also someone wanting to know who it was that reported them for ranting reasons. No one should be an exception to the rules, although I can understand the animosity. ;) (and no, it wasn't me what reported when, why, and how)

Anywho, on a lighter note, I think that the RPG is progressing nicely. We've hit a few snags along the way, as do all great master works, but it's turning into something interesting. I'm curious to see how the story is going to play out.

Like Seijiro said, perhaps a god-post for some of us that are moving slower. Right now things seem really centered around the bird folks though the beast are moving alonger better too. The rest of us just seem a bit isolated.

Maybe we need a real shake up that will draw everbody out and to the same location.

A good place to meet would be Victory Road. Almost everyone goes there, so it won't be suspicious. Powerful pokemon dwell along the way, so natural incidents are quite normal. It is also the place where the Eliete Four are, and Lance is always able to arrange emergancy aid. The arrival of more Eliete Forces would add some pressure, but Balthazar is quite intent on being secret until his plan is complete.

The head scientist summoned forth the injured pidgeys. "If your mission was successful, fly to the left hall." Only half of them flew in that direction. One pidgey was carrying a note. "Dear Sir, You shall not be successful in your attempt to tag the bird of fire that speaks. I found his bracelet in the ocean, devise broken. Do not attempt his capture again or else you will see my wrath. -H.K.-" He swore and tore the letter. It was bad enough that Balthazar was after hisprize prey, but the Human Kelcon was worse. It was cunning. It had destroyed three teams so far single-handedly with its honeyed tounge, causing mass desertions. Already, some of his workers were leaving. He growled and turned back to his new experiment. It was a Snorlax. "Destroy." WHAM! A human figure splinetered and the creature bellowed. The scientist shook his head. "No good. You shall be whipped and braceleted, and used for experimentations." He droned. He walked away from the screaming creature to another laboratory, where he saw a figure hunched over on the floor. "Ah, Cassandra, are you ready to tell me what you saw?" He said coldly. The figure uncoiled. She was covered with bruised and cuts. She mumbled something. He leaned in, and she attacked. She squeezed her hands in an unnaturally strong grip at whatever she could grab while her nails dug into his skin. Her teeth would not relent. He roared and raised a whip. After the beating were done,she continued to trill in an unnaturally high tone. He was used to hearing Pokemon cry like this, but not for this long nor this loud. He was starting to feel like he was living with a pokemon, as she started becoming more and more like a Persian. He heard a voice behind him. "Sir, we examined Cassandra's DNA- that isn't her! It's a ditto! The Eliete Forces have recaptured her!" A scientist stuttered. The Head Scientist turned to face his worker. "Send after the Areodactlys. The big ones, with the tested genes. All of them. I am going to KILL Balthazar the next time he tries to recapture my prey!" He roared. He slameed the door and went deep into his private study....

No I didn't, but it will never work though because your character evil and my character is well not. So if we were to meet we more than likely wouldn't become friends because unless you are evil because of the scientists, Raikou just wouldn't like you.

In the RP, several people's characters are using Pokemon abilities, but that doesn't seem to fit with what the first few of us were doing. I think we should decide one way or another. I'm personally in favor of them not being able to use Pokemon abilities.

You have no reason to turn hatred on the person that reported the RPG. there were multiple short posts and the reasonable thing that anyone would do is to report it, NOT to handle it by theymselves! Now, stop flaming the person who did this and return this to being a discussion thread, not a flaming thread. Your posts have improved a little, but I still see short posts, you should know who you are, three lines and a haf do not count as full posts.

Yeah, you're a human basicly until the scientists are stopped, dead or whatever, and they preform the reverse ritual for the Crystal Transformation, but it's hard and they all have to be together, therefore the XRBCs and scientists have to be destroyed.

Psychic
14th April 2006, 5:46 PM
Um, then how are we going to fight the scientists in human form? I mean, this pretty much defeats the whole purpose of the RP, because don't the Legendaries need their 00ber powers to defear the scientists? If the Legendaries can stop them while in human form, doesn't that mean that any ordinary human could defeat the scientists? Why can the Legendaries do it when nobody else can, even if they're a strong trainer?

Just some food for thought...

You Can't go 00ber on them, Cause you need to perform the Ritual, and everybody needs to be there in order to perform it. So, that rules out going all Flamethrower and Ice beam on the scientists.

"I SUMMON- MYSELF!" Yeah, that would be funny.

Torkie10
17th April 2006, 10:58 PM
I have been doing a type check and it looks like the scientists are probably going to have a lot of rock pokemon. Why? Because almost half of the 16 heroes, including Mew, Mewtwo, and Entei, anre weak to rock type pokemon. The good news is, Torkie is good against rock types. The bad news is, most rock types are also ground types, and while only 3 of the counted party has a weakness to that, (Would be a lot more except for the fact half of them are flying types, canceling out ground completely) Torkie is one of those. Interesting, no?

Psychic
17th April 2006, 11:09 PM
-_- Yeah, I'm sure a Blaziken will be much better off than any Legendary Pokémon. >> Remember Torkie10; the Legendary Pokémon are extremely powerful creatures whom many believe to be God-like. Somehow, I can't imagine Mew, Creater and Mother of the Universe, going down after being hit by a few Rock Slide attacks. Can you imagine an almost all-powerful creature getting killed by the attacks of a bunch of ordinary Pokémon?
I know the games say otherwise, but seriously, these are some VERY powerful creatures, and no matter how strong any Pokémon, even your Blaziken character is, they'll never be as powerful as ANY Legendary.


And besides, I'm sure there would be a lot more Dark-types than Ghost types, if you'll take a look at how many Legendaries are Psychic types.

One thing you guys have working to your advantage is that you'll have Mew. Why? Well, let's see; not only is she the Uber Mother of all life, but she has two wonderful techniques: Transform and Metronome. Mew can turn into anything she wants using Transform, and with Metronome she can use absolutely any attack she wants. :)


And guys, you CAN wait for Mew and Mewtwo. Instead of continueing, let me and Zerodius finish what we're doing, then we can join the other Legendaries and we can really get the ball rolling!



~Psychic
PS: And guys, there are STILL some one-line posts! >>

Torkie10
17th April 2006, 11:21 PM
Yes, but are we forgetting a few things? Hmm... First off, they are human. That cuts them down a bit. Second off, they can't really defend themselves very well. They don't have very much power that they can use in their human form. Third off, Torkie is actually one of the worst off of all the group. Did you not notice his thoughts? He doesn't think very highly of himself. Lastly, yes I can, but only because PEOPLE don't survive rock slides very well, and for the moment, mew is indeed, human. In her natural state, shy would be extremely powerful, because as you said, there are few dark pokemon. Unfortunately, there a lots and lots of bug pokemon, but I seriously doubt the scientists will be using THOSE. Even so, Mew would probably be able to pick them up, swing them around, and send them to another region entirely just using her mind. For now, most of the group is human and human they shall stay for a while. By the way, I was not saying MEW was weak to rock, I was saying that she was included in the band of heroes, even though she is not at Victory Road. Otherwise, my calculations would be of no value because I forgot to include three of the legendaries. And yes, Mew is a very good advantage.

Zerodius
18th April 2006, 12:14 AM
To Torkie10: Forget the games. Just, forget them.

This isn't a RP where a Charizard can be killed in one hit by a Squirtle's Water Gun. This is not a RP where Mewtwo dies in one hit from Heracross's Megahorn. This is not a RP where Mew will stand there and not move an inch when a Shadow Ball is heading her way.

A Blaziken is a mere mortal. He couldn't scratch Articuno even if he tried with all of its might.

Although they currently have a human disguise and can't use their powers, I assume that they must still have loads of endurance.

NOTE: according to my vision of things, it would take a real ARMY of experienced Pokemon to take on a single Legendary. Read: thousands and thousands of regular Pokemon directing their full power against the Legendary.

Mew can turn into anything she wants using Transform, and with Metronome she can use absolutely any attack she wants. :)The interesting thing about Mew is that it can learn any attack on its own, anyways. Metronome is good in the games, but somewhat useless in a situation where you aren't restricted to four moves. Of course, there's the whole 'limited energy' thing that may come into play. *thinks*

Don't argue... i'm too ticked off already....Calm down, oh wonderful GM. ;) I see little to no point in becoming unhappy. We are just as much bound by the rules of the forum as anyone else. If everyone puts in an effort toward making posts of a reasonable length, then we can continue to play in peace. :b


NOTE: according to my vision of things, it would take a real ARMY of experienced Pokemon to take on a single Legendary. Read: thousands and thousands of regular Pokemon directing their full power against the Legendary.I had a flash of the battle scene from the Lucario/Mew movie when I read this. Even so, you saw what happened in the second movie (the birds being captured) where it showed that it didn't take much to capture them. Of course, they weren't sedated or anything, but kept under control... to a degree. The legendaries are still living creatures, and thus, must have limits. I think it would be more interesting to play along the lines of not being unbeatable, rather than being the unstoppable-uber-of-DOOM!!!11!1! character that blasts away all in their path. Any takers? :)

The canon is uber flawed in the vision of the Legendaries' powers.

One episode, they're gods, the next, they're weaker than your average Rattata.

In short, your point is unfortunately, invalid.

Yes, the Legendaries shouldn't be unbeatable and in my vision, aren't either... but despite being living creatures, one must take in mind that they are SUPPOSED to be INSANELY powerful. That means "no trainer or Pokemon should defeat them on their own". Any exception to that rule = plothole unless you can find a MIGHTY good reason to it (like the Legendaries going easy or the Pokemon/trainer Pokemon being super-charged in some way or some EXTREMELY amazing technology being at work).

That is my vision of things so you're not forced to agree with me but well...

NOTE: even if my vision is the one used in the fic... one has to keep in mind that it is a basically a "Legendaries against everyone" case ; in short, even if the Legendaries can KO fifty Pokemon per second, the threat of being defeated is very real ; the enemies HAVE far than enough underlings and ressources for the job.

Might I mention that In the games, You can catch the Legendaries? But, they are pretty dang easy there. In the show and everything else, They're hard. They were easy in the games, because they needed to be catchable. You can't have a 00ber, uncatchable 1-hit pwner in the game.
