[kanto]

As in many other regions, pokémontraining is at it's climax. Almost every child dreams of traveling the region and building their very own pokémon team. This journey allows these children to become more able and versed citizens and human beings, parents were encouraged to allow their children to begin as soon as they hit ten years of age. According to the laws passed by the Pokémon League Association-only the most highly accredited professor is given the task of distributing a set number of "starter pokémon" to these children. One, Professor Oak, sought a way to further his research on pokémon. Given his age, the Professor invented a device that would allow him to catalogue data without having to travel the land and strain his body. Of course, that would mean he would have to still capture them to get the information. So he mass produced the device and distributed them to the new trainers. The Pokédex was born, and each of the entrusted professors from the region managed to constantly upgrade and tweak the original design. Soon enough, every child who began their journey was given a starter pokémon and a pokédex.

The problem with this inflation in young trainers is that there are more interested kids than their are available pokémon and pokédexs. Not to mention, most-if not all-of these eager children who begin their journey never make it past their third gym badge. So the Pokémon League Association is left with wasted money trying to reach out to the children, angry professors who lose their pokémon for nothing, and the value of the pokédex vanishing rapidly. Now that every other child in the region owns a pokédex, they are worthless-and the Professors never even acquire any data because the kids give up so soon.



The tragic solution to these problems happened all too suddenly, one day every pokédex in the city vanished. Then reports came in all over the region, and soon enough the entire world. The pokédex is nothing more than a memory now, the professors of the world can't even engineer it again because the only mind that knows the original blueprints is Professor Oak-or shall i say Dr. Oak. The same day the pokédexs began to vanish, the once highly acclaimed Professor Oak retired out of the blue. In a press conference held later that week, Oak said that he had been preparing for retirement as early as the summer 2009. The added exhaustion due to the constant travel to reach scientific convention in other regions solidified Oak's feelings. His announcement sent shock waves through the Association and appeared on the front pages of newspapers around the world. He was no where to be seen on newspapers for days, overshadowed by the sudden dissapearance of entire species of pokémon. Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu and Eevee were all reported to either dissapear or run off and never to be seen again. Their evolutions met the same fate, each and every one of them. So by the winter of 2010, the world had lost it's most prestigious professor, a highly useful technological tool, and nineteen species of pokémon. But by the following autumn the Association resumed play of the League as usual and the world soon forgot their tragic losses. Parents, however, were much more strict when it came to letting them travel on their own. So the Association decided to set an age restriction: any one person wishing to participate in the League must first finish school and reach the age of sixteen to obtain their legal pokémon training license. Dr. Oak continues to live in Pallet Town.







[the levels]


There will be set levels. Wild pokémon will appear with their level in accordance to Bulbapedia, but there will be some higher level ones I reward for extremely awesome posts which will manifest itself by it knowing higher level attacks. Pokémon that are caught can learn attacks by leveling up, level ups are rewarded for battles. The better the battle, the more experience your pokémon gains and the faster it learns new attacks. Learned attacks can be written about in several ways, you're pokémon can suddenly execute the attack mid-battle or you may spot it out in the pokédex. Your choice.

Tutor/Egg attacks can also be learned, but you don't just slap a disk on their head and expect them to learn the attack. Actual writing must take place, don't be lazy. A "tutor" must be found and some kind of strange training must take place that teaches the skills your pokémon needs to learn the attack.

TM/HMs are discs that hold energy the pokémon absorb by touch when it is activated. The energy allows them to learn the attack. TMs will be found along the journey, while HMs will usually be more rare.

Um...if the maximum age we can be is 18, why is the minimum age one can recieve a trainers licence 21?

I'm pretty much done with my SU, but I'd rather wait for the deadline before it's judged. In case I decide on other things to add...

GoldenHouou
9th April 2012, 10:03 PM
I think I'd prefer it if you judged us once the Sign Ups for that starter are all up. From what I read, many seem to be content with what they've written right now, and I think it'd be fair to get it done once everyone's posted. Plus, maybe then I don't need to wait until morning. Damn timezones. I mean, I personally don't see the point of fine tuning anyway; why not just do your best with your app the first time around? That eliminates the need to go back and forcibly add stuff later to one up others. But that's just meeee and I'm lazy anyway so meh. Guess I could go over my app for spelling/grammar mistakes. Again.

But anyway, yay, Discussion Thread for... discussity things 8D

Azran Flame
9th April 2012, 10:42 PM
Another question: which gen standards are we going by here? I, II, III, IV or V?

Also, I second what Mon said. I'd lower the restriction to 16.

There... fixed.

Azran Flame
10th April 2012, 12:43 AM
I think he meant "sleeping like a rock on his ten hour shift", but that's just me.

Purplepassion
10th April 2012, 12:46 AM
^I think he was crossing out "sleeping like a rock" and replacing it with "working a ten hour shift". But then again maybe I'm wrong.

Agreeing with what Mon and Flame Mistress said about the age thing.

I don't really care if the judging begins once everyone's done or at the deadline because either way there'll still be judging today.

Anyways, I'm assuming we're all starting in Pallet Town? Do the starters in the RP end up being the last of their kind or something?

DVB
10th April 2012, 12:52 AM
Well, considering the people got sucked into the game. It's their job to make things right again. So, are we waiting to find out who made the cut?

Niihyl
10th April 2012, 1:42 AM
WAAAAIT, I'm not done yet! D:

Give me an extra hour. Two, tops. Like I said in the Sign-Up thread, I pretty much finished yesterday night... err, early morning... I'm just trying to touch everything up and reorganize the somewhat overlong Personality section. You could judge all the starters except Pikachu, since that's one I'm working on.

As for the age thing, we've been sucked into the game, so our avatars may 'officially' be 21. I mean, would you believe Brendan/May/Dawn/Lucas/etc. to all be 10? Also, we're interdimensional travelers, we don't need to worry about silly rules.

Monster Guy
10th April 2012, 2:03 AM
^ I believe Lucas is 12. That's only because his Pokemon Special counterpart "Diamond" is. xD

I didn't intend for Stella to be Riku's female counterpart, it just happened that way...

They're rich, they spend money like it grows on trees, they're snobs, they're arrogant, if Stella is accepted, I feel bad for the rest of the cast. xD

Niihyl
10th April 2012, 3:36 AM
Pokketo Monsutaa: Jimu Riidaa, huh? Well, I've finally posted my sign-up, so now we can just wait for judging.

I'm actually pretty hyped for this, so I'll be sad if I lose now. After all, this seems to have more game-y aspects, compared to most RPGs here being RPs. Competition gets me hyped for anything, really.

Purplepassion
10th April 2012, 3:47 AM

Sorry guys, I know this is really bad but I just realized i have freshman orientation at my new university so I'll be gone from tonight to at least tomorrow evening. I don't even have time to read these posts above me. So sorry again guys, I'll try to get back ASAP with my decisions. Until then, try not to die from the suspense. Oh and Zalck, funny sig :b

Azran Flame
10th April 2012, 7:52 AM
@Purplepassion: It was more of a joke, really. A fail one, since no one really got it.

And I'm gonna have to work on making my sections longer... ;_; I'm so pathetic compares to others. The only thing I can write lines and lines of is History.

Monster Guy
10th April 2012, 2:00 PM
More often than not, history is just listing a bunch of events that happened to your character that will usually have no bearing on the RPG at all. If those events had an effect on them, it can be casually mentioned in their personality or mentioned in the RPG itself.

GoldenHouou
10th April 2012, 6:27 PM
@Charizard: Yikes, don't worry 'bout us, school comes first. We'll wait.

@Mon: Well, seems like you edited out the bit about listing every damn detail or whatever, but Imma reply to that anyway 8P I actually don't like listing everything either, despite what it might seem. I don't write nearly every single thing about my character's Personality, for example. I write out what I feel is needed to give an overall picture and basic frames on how they act and whatnot, and then detail it further when posting. Usually characters have enough personality to allow for a nice lengthy SU entry and still allow you to discover/develop things in the actual rp. Because really, no real person could be fully described in just a paragraph or ten either. History... eh, I hate writing history, even though I acknowledge it's an important field because history does affect personality too. I admit to rambling too much with it 8C I don't name every single dog and bird my character comes across, but still.

But really, I wouldn't be too bent on making a SU longer if you really don't feel like you have anything to add. If you feel you've given a good enough picture of your character, good, that's that then. No need to add stuff just as a padding; oftentimes that added stuff ends up being really irrelevant because even you don't really think it's important.

[/SU ramble]

Monster Guy
10th April 2012, 7:15 PM
@GH: Normally, I'd agree with you.

But when your told that "nothing about your writing stands out" You add as much detail as possible. >_>

I'm probably just overeacting though. Anyway, I'm happy with the way it is now. (Sure the avatar section could be a bit longer, but honestly, there are only so many ways one can describe a simple outfit change...)

Niihyl
10th April 2012, 7:24 PM
Don't worry, we understand real life and its evil tendency to drag you away from the infinitely superior internets. :P

In all seriousness, length isn't everything. It shows dedication and ability to write and describe, but you don't need an entire novel to describe a rounded character. It's why infodumping is discouraged in writing. You don't want to be told an essay's worth of personality traits, they want to be shown them. Characters tend to change and develop during RPs too. I think the sample text is just as important, and even then, more for technique than length. Can you quickly establish your character's personality in writing?

Purplepassion
10th April 2012, 9:12 PM
@Charizard: Aww, ok. No need to rush, though.

@Everyone discussing lengthy SUs: Yeah, the infodumping is a really discouraged action. I guess it works best if you're not too laconic with things? (And I tend to be laconic with a lot of things so that's something I'm having trouble with XD) Then effectively describing the personality in a well-worded paragraph. Or something.

Charizard_Man

10th April 2012, 11:23 PM
D'awww, that's too bad. Congrats, Purplepassion! Mind if I hop over to Eevee? I'm pretty sure that was allowed. I'll tidy up the RP sample a bit and get back at it if that's permissible.

Charizard_Man
10th April 2012, 11:31 PM
That is allowed, however, mon1010 will also be able to beef up her signup as much as possible. I think I will only allow transfers over to either Eevee or Bulbasaur because those are the only two that had one person applying for them. And that's no competition, and no competition equals no fun. So yeah. haha.

Monster Guy
10th April 2012, 11:35 PM
I say again. Mon1010 is a boy.

Playing a female character with a taste for pink girly things. xD

Purplepassion
10th April 2012, 11:35 PM
@Charizard: :D But yeah, it must have been really hard to choose, considering all the impressive signups sent.

@Niihyl: Thanks! It was a fun competition, I'll admit. My prediction was wrong, though XD Good luck on your edit competition! (<- saying that to Mon as well.)

Niihyl
10th April 2012, 11:38 PM
Thanks! Good to know I'll have another chance, at least. Second try; Eevee.

Let's go.

Edit: You can never tell on the RP forum. A couple people used to think I was a girl, since a large chunk of my characters tend to be female.

I don't want to either, but it's what must be done... :/

We were both accepted fair and square. It's not our fault no one else wanted the spots.

If you're going to accept it then accept it. If your going to reject it, then reject it. I'll accept defeat and fix the mistakes, or bow out gracefully.

But don't go herp derp, you're accepted, but were gonna let other people take your spots anyway.

That I find ridiculous. I worked as much on that as anyone else did. More than I really should have.

I made it clear long ago that this situation would come, it was just a matter of time. But for these re-takes the deadline will be much sooner. Tonight actually, don't make the deadline you don't make the cut. Sorry but yeah, tough cookies. And just for those of you who didn't make this, it's not the end of the world. Since I see the level of interest in this is so high, I will include spots for Re-occuring characters. I'll use the anime as an example: Richie, Gary, Drew, Barry. They are all examples of re-occuring characters. So if you don't make the deadline (tonight at 11:30 PM Pacific Standard Time) you're application will be saved for a re-occuring character. So yeah, I'm trying to involve everyone. I hate having people feel left out or cheated.

Um, where the heck did you get those from? Haven't you been following this... at... all?


Blaaaah~ My.brain.is.fried. But you know what, I'm gonna man up and get through this. Just for you guys, I've made all of you wait for far too long. But like I said, my brain is friend. I'm not even going to bother reading through the entire page of discussion you guys had, so if it something important directed towards me just re-post it. Alright, so now for the cruel and harsh part of my job as a GM of an RP that is overflowing in acceptable applications. I Need to pick only four >.< Since I plan on starting this sometime in the next twenty-four hours, I'll have to disqualify any one who hasn't even posted their application by now or any one who has dropped out. Which left me with this final starter to person issue:

BulbasaurOkay now I didn't know what to do here, it seems Raiden never posted his application.? I'm not sure, I might have just missed it because I'm stupid like that. But if he never did post it, then he is disqualified it seems. But I'm not 100% positive, I might just not be able to find it. So Zalck, if you can shed some light on this situation for me that would be much appreciated. But if he didn't, of course, the spot goes to Zalck.

CharmanderOf the two that applied for Charmander, I'm giving Golden Houou priority since his application was strongest by far. So congratulations, and welcome to the game.

SquirtleY'all know already. ;D Charizard_Man

PikachuOkay well out of the three of you I narrowed it down between Niihyl and Purplepassion. With this, I had to systematically compare the writing samples you both gave because your main applications were just too close of a call. Unfortunately, this means I had to reject one of you by only a slim margin. I've decided to reject Niihyl, after quite a bit of thought. You are not a bad RPer at all, but given the circumstances I had to cut the one with the weaker sample out of the two of you. I always feel like I'm offending someone when it comes down to this, but I'm really not trying to hurt anyone D: So congratulations Purplepassion~.

EeveeWell mon1010 did run unopposed so the spot will go to her. Congrats Mon1010 (:

So I hope I don't get hunted down, these are my decisions. I'll be gone, sleeping the evening away because I'm tired. We'll begin upon my return. See ya


and


BulbasaurThis starter will stay with Zalck after review of the signups.

EeveeAfter reading through the signups, I'm giving this one to Niihyl. It really seemed that he cared about this roleplay just by busting his butt to meet the deadlines and he really went that extra mile in his application. It really showed too, so congratulations to these two people for joining the team.

That's it, signups are officially closed. If you did not make the cut you will have your time to shine when re-occuring characters make their appearances. That is, if you still want to be part of this. I'll notify you via PM when your time comes. Until then, I'll probably post up the first chapter tonight and knock out. Once I'll wake up I hope to have a feew posts from you guys then I'll post and chapter two will go up and this thing will gain momentum (:

And heh, FM, I didn't change to Charmander. I mean I did, but even before I posted my Sign Up. It said so right in the SU. I even had a sprite of Charmander and everything 8P But yeah. Congrats to everyone from me too, whether they made it or not.

I'll see if I can get a post up today.

@FM: Ah, must've been the one in Niihyl's SU or something. But yeah, thanks. Will see you in other rps and as a recurring character hopefully 8)

Oh hey, Charizard. My post is almost ready, but... I see you put up a new rule that the characters aren't allowed to notice the difference in their appearance yet. I sort of... had mine notice the clothes he wore were strange and comment on his fashion sense (since he can't remember what he used to wear and doesn't know his clothes have changed), would you like me to edit that out, or just have him remember these aren't his usual clothes later when the revelation is to take place? Oh and do you have a preference as to which name we refer to our characters with in the posts; their real one or their avatar's name? I know they don't remember it themselves, but in the narrative.

Alright, will take the clothing bit away. I need to cut and edit some other stuff as well, in order to justify him not looking himself over and noticing his clothes the second he gets on his feet, though, so this might take a while.

Alright, hey guys I got some news for you. I updated the first post of the Discussion Thread with all of our characters. yaaaay~ I just need ONE tiny little piece of help from you guys. Throughout this rp we will be catching Pokemon, storing them in our PC's maybe and gaining items from our travels. So we're gonna need an inventory post, and what I want (just to make it easier for me ;b) is for you guys to dedicate a post for your PC and inventory right now and I'll link it to your character profile thingy. I'll edit my previous post just before this one once I'm done writing this thing. But this means we'll be on the honor system, if I catch you guys cheating. Like giving yourselves an extra item you didn't have, or a Pokemon you didn't catch I will raise a finger at you and you'll get a warning. Do it twice, and you're out.

As for a question. !Question time: Regarding our final teams for this roleplay, the six pokemon we will use during Victory Road and the Elite Four, I think it would be best if we don't have repeated pokemon. There are only five of us, I think we can manage to have six different Pokemon. But how do you guys feel about this? Would you mind having repeated Pokemon on your final team? Now, this isn't to say you can't catch pokemon that some one else has caught. No way, but you just can't have the same as some one else does for their final team. What are your opinions on this?

11th April 2012, 11:44 PM
So, our starting inventories contain some basic items like sleeping bags, clothes, etc.? Just want to make sure everything's in order.

As for... Pokemoney, it equals yen, right? I believe that's how it works in the Japanese games. 100 yen is about 1 dollar, ignoring current day inflation and whatnot. So a basic Poke Ball at 200 Poke is about $2.00 in real life terms. So... about how much money should we have on us? Riku has 3000, I see.

There's 649-ish Pokemon. I'm not unduly worried about repeats, but I think it should be permissible. I mean, there's Ritchie, who basically only has 'mons owned by Ash. The two are still quite different, and we're all different too. Strategy, personality, etc. And besides, might make for interesting Pokemon battles.

So I was typing up my post but then I kind of hit a roadblock... my character is wearing a skirt so how is she going to find/store the Gameboy Color without noticing that she's changed outfits? Perhaps she could have it in her hand when she wakes up and then store it in her bag without thinking?

As for your question, I'm all for repeats, gives everyone more choices to work with. No one gets frustrated if they don't get to catch them! As for the inventory, is the Gameboy Color supposed to be in the inventory too or is it for something else entirely?

For the 'not changed appearance' I think that's part of our amnesia. We don't remember what we were wearing before, so we don't realize that we're wearing anything particularly different.

I don't think that's the case; I mean, that's pretty much what was originally in my post, and I was asked to change it. Unless, of course, I failed to communicate that's what I meant. |D

As for the duplicates, I'll say allow them, but put a limit. Say... you can have the same Pokémon as others, but you can't have more than two Pokémon in common with one player (but you can, for example, have one Pokémon in common with each player). That way people don't need to lay claims or be on the edge over whether or not someone takes a Pokémon they want, but at the same time it prevents everyone having the same four Pokémon, for example.

I'll throw in an inventory post a bit later once I figure out what he has on him, apart from the GBA. Probably at least his cellphone, he has it everywhere. About the money... do each of us start with the same amount, or does that correlate with how rich/poor they were in the real world?

Ack, um... He said that if I would change it he'd appreciate it, as he wanted to save the surprise for later? I think. I'm seriously not sure, sorry 8C And on my second question, if you'd like to know that too, he said to avoid any names in the post.

Yes, sorry if I wasn't particularly clear with this. I guess sometimes I just assume everyone thinks as crazy and stupidly as I do -_____- Anyways, yes. This is what I meant.


As for the inventory, is the Gameboy Color supposed to be in the inventory too or is it for something else entirely?

Oh! Yes, that belongs in your inventory. It seems I forgot to add that in my inventory, don't make the same mistake :p


So, our starting inventories contain some basic items like sleeping bags, clothes, etc.? Just want to make sure everything's in order.

Yes our starting inventories just contain real life necessities that you would take if you went camping or something. They will vary, depending on your character of course. That sounds about right, but we will all be starting with 3000. It just the standard starting money in the game as well. So yeah.



There's 649-ish Pokemon. I'm not unduly worried about repeats, but I think it should be permissible. I mean, there's Ritchie, who basically only has 'mons owned by Ash. The two are still quite different, and we're all different too. Strategy, personality, etc. And besides, might make for interesting Pokemon battles.

This brings me to my next question! Would you guys mind using Kanto only Pokemon? Being in the Kanto region, I feel like staying true to the original 151 pokemon. But of course, if you all feel strongly about this we can come to some kind of agreement. There is also the option of using pokemon that have at least one stage of their evolution in Kanto. But anyways, discuss your thoughts on this.

Niihyl
12th April 2012, 2:23 AM
Alright, edited Inventory. Thanks very much for the clarifications!

As for the original 151... I'm going to have to respectfully disagree. One of the best things about Pokemon is the great variety. There are many interesting Pokemon throughout the regions, and I don't think limiting it would be fun. I mean, Gen. 1 didn't even have a Steel-Type! That's a whole type being cut out. Edit: Also, Dark Type was introduced in Gen. 2 as well, so that's two whole types that we won't have any access to, which also means that the Psychic-type's brokenness makes a return.

Also, you did write this:


Different Pokemon. The biomes of the region have changed since decades ago due to years of random Pokemon being released and change in weather, making the fauna the most diverse it has ever been.

... which could explain the presence of foreign Pokemon. Diversity is fun, and it's pretty much necessary if we want any semblance of uniqueness at all. After all, while there may be 151 Pokemon, there are far fewer evolution families. Having a Pidgey would eventually be the same thing as having a Pidgeot. Many types are underrepresented in early games as well. Gastly is the only ghost type family in the entire 151. Dratini's line the only dragons. There are only three families of fighting-types as well. Even the more common types such as Fire only have five or six different families to choose from. We'd be drowning in Water-types and Normal-types...

Besides, who wants to RP 'I battled another Rattata. Oh, fishing? Fifty Magikarps, twenty-five Goldeen and a couple of Tentacool. ... Dratini? Oh wait, Dratini is the only dragon and everyone else has one."

Ah, so I could have kept my post the way it was, then? Guess I didn't make it clear what I meant then. Damn, I liked the older version of my post far better. Well, not gonna edit it so meh, 's alright. Sorry for further confusing everyone.

Oh and I'm with Niihyl and Zalck on the Kanto Pokémon only thing. When I saw you mention different Pokémon in the chances Kanto has gone through, I kind of automatically assumed you meant Pokémon not originally from Kanto, and I, too, would prefer having more variety. Even having just Johto Pokémon in addition to the Kanto ones would help a great deal, if you don't want to include all 600+ species and five regions. Johto and Kanto are close by geographically anyway.

Yeah, and I'm gonna have to agree with the other three too. Although including Pokemon from Unova might be a bit of a stretch, it would be nice to include at least Johto (Or maybe Hoenn as well? Maybe not?) and like they all said, variety's fun.

(There aren't much arguments for me to use here, so I'll just support what they all said)

That's only logical, to have Johto pokemon in Kanto after sixteen years. Okay, I will NOT be including Sinnoh and Unova Pokemon. Unless of course you evolve-for example-a tangela into a tangrowth. But in the wild there will be a plethora of Kanto and Johto pokemon, with a few Hoenn species scattered around the region. With a limit of two repeats on your final team that you share with other players. Sound god guys? Let me know, I'll update all of the inventory stuff right now and I'll post Part B after.

Also, if I may make a suggestion, perhaps we should ease up on the long, detailed posts? I mean, quality is never a bad thing, but feeling obligated to write 1,000+ word posts all the time makes it less likely that people will post often and keep this alive... We all worked hard for this, so none of us wants to see this die, right? We could save the literary masterpieces for important battles and Pokemon captures...

I'm not suggesting that we go with the 200 word absolute minimum, but moderation is the key to success, right?

I see where you're coming from and I'll try to tone it down too, if everyone agrees that'd be for the best. It's just that it seriously takes me more time and effort to trim a post down than to... just write a long one. Hum. But I can put the effort in of course, if that helps. Just... *glances at post in the making and realizes it's 600+ words and still not in Oak's lab yet* ... Imma make a long one just this once at least, 'kay? 8>

Niihyl
15th April 2012, 8:42 PM
Eh, mine was like 1,500 words too.

I suppose my point is 'relax', not 'do more work by forcing posts to be short'. After all, setting the imaginary bar so high that it becomes a slog to reach it for every single post doesn't seem like the best course of action. Additionally, excellence in capture posts and gym battles - where excellence is required - becomes all the harder. There will probably be points in the RP for simple interaction, and if we feel like saying two sentences to the guy next to you requires 1,000 words... no. But on the other hand, there will be parts of the RP where long posts are necessary, especially in the episodic nature of the RP.

I know, it made me sad evertime i logged back on to find that no one has posted D: buuut, i understand that school and other stuff comes first. Actually, I start school again tomorrow after this awesome spring break. So that means I'll probably be a little less active, school and track will definitely take up some time. But of course, I'll always log on in between homework assignments ;)

But so... anyone wanna partner up with Sushi and get snarked at? 83

Purplepassion
22nd April 2012, 8:35 PM
Ooh, great! And now to decide which to catch. As much as having a Poochyena would be fun, it would be out of character...so maybe a Pidgey instead? /shrug

Lucky you guys, finishing school in two weeks ;_; I have about another month to endure. And exams are starting next week, so sorry if I become inactive at that time.

Likewise, would anyone like to partner with Fern? Also if there's only five of us, does that mean someone is battling twice?

GoldenHouou
22nd April 2012, 8:48 PM
Oh yeah, didn't realize there were five of us. Huh. Yeah, I'd imagine someone's battling twice then me, me, pick me!, or battling an NPC...? Heh, yeah I know the feel; I'd like to catch Mareep, but doubt Sushi would ever catch one. Not that he... even knows how to battle with Pokémon, let alone catch one. He's such a n00b at all of this.

I have some basic stuff thought out whoever I team up with. With Fern, Sushi'd try to slightly flirt with her just for the lulz (since he saw Wiz checking her out earlier), with Jabe he'd be jokingly keeping his distance and feign being scared every time he lifts a finger, with Wiz he'd be all interestedly asking which game world did he jump out from and had he ever thought about cosplaying Sailor Moon, and with El, he'd constantly be all "concerned" that he might get dirt on his precious clothes and need to get his hands dirty doing something *gasp* himself. Basically just making fun of them based on first impressions. Well, until he realizes he sucks at battling more than they do. Might shut him up for a while.

Niihyl
22nd April 2012, 8:48 PM
It's out! Yayayayayay! *Squee*

I'll battle anyone. I still need to nickname people, after all. I've got Sashimi-kun and GoldenEye so far... Let's see how exciting we can make a battle with only Tackle, Scratch, Tail Whip, and Growl... wow, Tackle is the only attacking move Eevee has until level 22... At which point it learns Quick Attack. Better evolve it quick, or rely on other 'mons.

As for Pokemon, Mareep looks to be the most useful, but Pidgey and Poochy could come in handy. My very first Shiny was a golden Poochyena... ah, the memories. A flier would be useful later on...

I just picture Val as the kind of gamer who goes 'Rattata? Garbage. No competitive value baaaaw!'

Just wait until I get my Butterfree. I'll take it to the Elite 4! 100% accurate Sleep Powder (well, in the games), abuse of Quiver Dance, Shadow Ball and Psychic makes a vicious sweeper.

Purplepassion
22nd April 2012, 9:02 PM
@GH: Fern has no prior experience either, so they're in the same boat. Hehehe.

@Niihyl: Whoa, my first shiny was a Poochyena too! Took it all the way to the Elite 4. It's the only shiny I've ever used in the game.

Anyways, my post'll be up sometime between now and Wednesday. Hopefully tomorrow, but I'm not exactly sure...

GoldenHouou
22nd April 2012, 9:10 PM
@Purple: Heh, that could make for one fun battle.

Fern: So... What are we supposed to do now?
Sushi: I dunno, heard we gotta fight with these... monsters or somethin'. *stands around* Eh, yeah, so, I'll start, I guess. *awkwardly picks Charmander up by the tail and swings it around* En garde?

You lucky bastards, you both got chocolate cookies! Well, that's what shiny Pooch always looked to me anyway. Always wanted one but no. Got a Mankey instead. The thing's green. Come on.

22nd April 2012, 9:38 PM
I might have to battle Zalck's character whose name I've totally forgotten... or Wiz, since we're the guys who know what we're doing. Cool? As for real wi-fi battles... Pokemon Online would probably be better, since it lets you specify your team from moves, IV/EVs, Levels, etc. Easier than having to go through the games, get a level 5 Bulbasaur, etc. I don't think it would be that great now, since we all have only one Pokemon, which only knows one combat move... so it'd be pretty dull. Also, RP battles are always more fun than the strict turn-based game battles.

Jabberwocky! O frabjous day, I can work with that... How about 'Snicker-snack', as the Vorpal Blade went? A little too mean/rude though. Not really Val's style. ... Okay, I'm calling him Val-el from now on. *Reference*

I boxed the Shiny Poochyena and never, ever used it. I was like seven, and I was afraid that evolving it would change it back into a normal Mightyena...

Edit:

Wait a sec, did we ever get Poke Balls? Five, I'd assume, since that's how it usually works.

Charizard_Man
22nd April 2012, 10:06 PM
Also if there's only five of us, does that mean someone is battling twice?

No one will battle twice, the fifth trainer will just battle an NPC. Which I will most likely volunteer to do so, I want you guys to have your fun. ^__^

Oh, talking about getting Pokéballs... I realized I didn't give Sushi any kind of bag, so unless they give him one at the lab, I think I'm gonna need to trim down his inventory.

@Purple: Hmm, so if Charizard volunteers to battle an NPC and Nii and Zalck are gonna go at it, guess that leaves us to have our fight after all, huh? 8P

@Charizard: Oh, alright then. Thanks for the clarification!

@GH: Yep. XD This'll be fun.

Actually Niihyl, we don't have our pokedexs yet. And the idea for Part A was to collaborate and have ONE post for the both of you.

When it hatches, you will gain both your partner and a special device known as a Pokedex.

Alright, I was going by this, so I assumed we'd have our PokeDex. As for collaboration, I figured that the first part, i.e., wandering about before the battle, was pretty much separate anyway. A'ight, I'll delete that. :P

I want a lilipup!!!


*Puppy Dog Eyes* <---- Oh the irony.


I might go for it. Or I might go for nothing. Jabe might be the kind of guy who is going to fast to catch anything... Or too focused on his Pokemon, or this battle. I guess it'll depend on that. His bulbasaur might convince him to catch somthing... we'll have to see!

Just letting everyone know me and purple are still working on the joint post and haven't abandoned this or anything. So, you guys still around too?

To follow up on GH's post above, yes, we should be done relatively soon! This RP is hopefully far from dead.

Niihyl just messaged me, we are still working on it! Of course this is far from dead!

Yeah, we're still here. Should I just post my post, I was just afraid of double posting. D; But I'll man up and do it, since we have only three days until the thread expires. Or will you guys have your posts up by then?

Me and Zalck have all but finished our post. Finishing touches are being placed, and it should be up soon!

Just popped in to say that our joint post's almost done as well now, and that we should probably have it up by the end of the week. It's mostly my fault it's taken this long, so sorry 'bout that.

But hey, Charizard, in the future, could we just post in the thread instead of working through PMs? We can still keep the whole posting pairs thing, I thought it was fun, it's just that I'd much rather be posting back and forth in the actual thread than in PMs. I mean, I think it's a bit silly to use private messages to rp when we have an actual roleplay thread up there, waiting for activity and all.

Well, that, and I suck at replying to PMs, I keep forgetting I have 'em/which ones I've already replied to.
