Basically the topic.

Okay guys, here's my basic idea. The story is called

A Pokemon Christmas Carol

Okay, all of you who know the classic christmas related stories pretty much can guess what this will be about, right?

Basically, it's Charles Dickens all time famous novel, Pokemon style.

Okay, the thing is, each charcter from the famous novel will be replaced with some type of Pokemon.

Now, let me just say before I get any hype about it. I know it will be weird seeing pokemon have jobs, money, clothes and such, just remember that Disney put in all their famous cartoon charcters for such a thing and nearly all of them were animals, so just deal with it.

Now, with all that aside, the ONLY problem I'm having is deciding what to make each Pokemon be. So that's where you come in.

What Pokemon do you think would make a great Ebenezer Scrooge?

What Pokemon would be one to remember forever as The Ghost of Christmas Past? Christmas Present? Christmas Yet-To-Come?

What about Bob Crachet? What Pokemon would be best for his role?

And let's not forget good old Tiny Tim. A Pokemon will play a role for him as well.

So guys, go for it.

Who would be best for which role?

Just remember, it's my pick in the end. :)

Also, go for as many as you like.

Who knows? Your choice just might be picked for this amazing fanfic that is yet-to-come! (Okay, bad pun!)

I've seen the disney version of this stroy so I know what the story's about.

Here are my ideas but they may change:

I thought up the three spirits of Christmas.
Ghost of Christmas Past: Celebi
Ghost of Christmas Present: Celebi
Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Come: Another Celebi
I picked those guys because they travel through time... couldn't be simple enough. lol

For Scrooge, Crachet, and Tiny Tim... I'm thinking about another cat/mouse relationship thing but I figured that it might be a little boring since there are a lot of stories/cartoons featuring cats and mice. But still...

Scrooge: Persian or Meowth
Crachet: Raticate or Pikachu
Tiny Time: Rattata or Raticate

You forgot Marley, Scrooge's old friend or boss: Duskull (Since he's a ghost and all).

That's all I can give for now, but I may think of something better.

Well... It's an ok idea. Just try and write it correctly. Keep to the story, yada, yada. Anyway...

You could do it like the Pokemon games.
Kanto= Past.
Jhoto= Present
Hoenn= Future.

The reason I am saying this is because you could take Pokemon from each of those worlds. Such as...
Christmas Past: Mew. Ok, goes against what I said, but it does come from around there. And it so sweet...
Christmas Present: Raikou. A boistorous, cheery character. (Got this view from Golden Houho. It fits him perfectly, I think)
Christmas Future: A ghost pokemon from Hoenn. Maybe a Bayannette, (however you spell it)

Scrouge: A mean character, but as he changes, not a incredibly mean character. Maybe a Persian. Smooth, sophisticated, arogant. Pefect.

Crachet: Something nice, big, friendly. Maybe a mightyena? (however you spell it) Something small, sweet, not to big.

Tiney Tim: Something small, a poochena.

His dead partner? Most probably a Haunter.

I hope this helps. :)

Maybe I can take a shot at this...

Ghost of Christmas Past: Celebi (Time travel)
Ghost of Christmas Present: Gengar (A prankster, closest I can get to the real character)
Ghost of Christmas Future: Banette

Scrouge: Persian (like in above post)

Cratchet: A PKMN that enjoys life no matter what, maybe? I'm stuck here.

Tiny Tim: Pichu (something fraglie. Pichu can hurt itself with an electric attack)

EDIT: Marley could be a Duskull or a Haunter. Your pick, Master.

Hmm. I was thinking maybe Meowth for scrooge, but now that I think about it Persian sounds good too. Chansey would be good for Cratchet, but I think Chansey's too big a Pokemon. I'd want to say Pikachu but Pikachu always has the spotlight, time for a break, right? and Pichu or one of the baby Pokemon like Cleffa or someone for Tiny Tim.

Maybe a Shiny Celebi for Christmas Past, regular Celebi for Christmas Present, and something tall and spooky and creepy yet nice for Christmas Future. Like Dusclops or Gengar. Dusclops is scarier though.

I'll try to help you, too. I had a similar problem when I was casting "I thought you said it was just hocus pocus!" so I know how it's hard to cast the "right" characters.
Ghost of Christmas Past: Latios (I don't know...)
Ghost of Christmas Present: The Unown (Those critters are HAPPY!)
Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Come: Mewtwo (Scary, don't you think?)
Scrooge: Skarmory (It's kind of mean)
Crachet: Magmar (Fatherly)
Tiny Time: Magby (Could be crippled)
Marley: Fearow (Not a ghost type but could work with a Skarmory Scrooge)

How's this?

I think Skarmory would make a great Scrooge
Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Come: mewtwo *great idea*
Marley: Fearow yep ^^


The rest.... are my ideas
Ghost of Christmas Past: Misdreavus?
Ghost of Christmas Present: how a bout a Celebi? Cute and cheerful.

Crachet: Rukaio?
Tiny Tim: a young Rukaio?

I like the Kanto/Johto/Hoenn idea that katie had (and since when did Mew NOT come from Kanto?)

however, I have a better idea...

Past: Igglybuff (I'm coming from the movie version....a little kid, kinda fragile)
Present: Blissey (once again, from the movie....big, fat, and happy)
Future: Mewtwo (Silent grim reaper....)

Tiny Tim: Munchlax (small and oh, so cute) or Cubone (same as before, but....*sniffles* they're cuter)

Marley: Aggron (don't really remember a lot about him, except from the Muppet version, lol, but Aggron looks mean....), Sandslash, Donphan

Cratchet: Marowak (they're nice and friendly, and if Tiny Tim=Cubone.....:D), Smeargle (friendly-looking, and they're just plain cool)


is there anyone else that I forgot?

You forgot Scrooge. You can't have a Christmas Carol without Scrooge. It's like seeing Hocus Pocus but without the Sanderson Sisters... Simply not done.

True that! He's the main charcter for crying out loud. How could you forget him, AJ? :)

Anyways, you guys have given me some good ideas here. Still, hard to decide.

Oh, almost forgot, votes end Thanksgiving. So keep those votes coming until then.

Let me add in a few more that I need help with:

Who can play Mr. Fezzywinks? (Scrooge's old boss.)

How about Isabell? (The girlfriend he dumped for wealth.)

Scrooge's nephew?

What about Scrooge's sister?

Also, let's not forget the little boy who told him it was Christmas. We need one for that too. :)

(Note: I'm having trouble remembering names.) ^_^;

Come on! Give me something here!

Remember, votes end on Thanksgiving.

I'll see ya later. ^_^

okay, here's my take.

for Scrooge (sorry for forgetting him):

A Blissey.

A Blissey, you say? They're nice creatures! not mean thigns!

*stares blankly*

try taking one of those babies down, and tell me again that they're nice, soft creatures.

seriously.

Mr. Fezzywinks: Pidgeot (Well, it goes with a Skarmory Scrooge)

Isabell: Mukrow (I have no idea..)

Scrooge's nephew: Pidgeotto (See above)

Scrooge's sister: Swellow (See above)

The little boy who told him it was Christmas: Evee (They're cute....)

What about a female Skarmory to play as Isabell?

Scrooge's nephew: Xatu?

Haunter
15th November 2005, 9:33 PM
I would say that the Christmas Messengers should be natu/xatu. They've got that whole "future seeing thing."

About my answers from earlier, let me change a few things here.

I thought up the three spirits of Christmas.
Ghost of Christmas Past: Celebi
Ghost of Christmas Present: Mew
Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Come: Mewtwo

Scrooge: Persian
Crachet: Raticate
Tiny Tim: Rattata

I still have that Duskull for Marley


Who can play Mr. Fezzywinks? (Scrooge's old boss.)
I don’t know… I think… a Houndoom


How about Isabell? (The girlfriend he dumped for wealth.)
Delcatty


Scrooge's nephew?
Meowth


What about Scrooge's sister?
Persian


Also, let's not forget the little boy who told him it was Christmas. We need one for that too.
Anyone random, I’ll put down… Munchlax

Hold on… what about the two guys who were collecting for the poor and Scrooge tells them to (BEEP!) off? I think I’ll nominate Plusle and Minun.

And the guy, from the very beginning, that says ‘penny for the poor’. I think I’ll put down Mightyena.

Ash_Junior: I know what you mean with Blissey and all, pretty much the perfect thing around for a tight spot. I've been defeated by many a Blissey back in my day. (Though that was just 2 years ago.)

Anyways, interesting choice. You just might be the winner. :) (For Scrooge at least.)

Diva1: Hm, interesting to say the least.

Angel-FoX-crescent: Random choice, right? Don't worry, choices are still interesting.

Pan: Hmm, I might choose that, I might not. I won't make my descisions until Thanksgiving.

Brian Powell: Ah, thank you! I forgot about those two that collected for the poor. Really sad what he did to them, huh? :(

Okay, after giving it alot of thought, here's ones that I've made a choice of which I'll most likely pick, but may change my mind at the last minute. (So, don't worry, you still have a chance.):

Scrooge: Blissey (AJ's choice was just too confincing.)

GoC Past: Mew (Wanted something easy to start with, but Mew is the light of all pokemon, when it comes to being the creator and all, you have alot of light.)

GoC Yet-to-come: Mewtwo (In all truth, we need something rather tall and scary. Something that brings fear. If you ask me, Mewtwo really fits that role.)

Bob Crachet: Smeargle (When I thought really hard about it, I ended up imagining Smeargle as the perfect choice. For one reason or another, I can just picture Smeargle for it.)

Okay, as of now, that's all I've got. Remember, those are only the ones I'm leaning towards. So I might change my mind. We'll just have to wait and see, right? :)

Oh, and seeing when I want this done, which is Christmas Day, it'll be a rather tight area. However, I might be leaning towards presenting it after Christmas anyways, despite it being out of date and all.

Besides, it'll be hard nonetheless as I'm also making a special one of a kind Christmas one-shot. Entitled: The Gift of the Magi AAML Style. Trust me, Pokeshippers are gonna love this one.

Well, I've got to get going. I'll see ya later. ^_^

Blissey? As Scrooge? O_o

I don't think that would work. In the main story, Scrooge is a mean old man who says 'humbug' every time someone says 'Every Christmas'. He did a lot of bad things, like what he said to the poor and such.

Blissey is a caring creature who heals pokemon... and I don't think pink suits Scrooge.

*points to Ash Junior's post.*

Telling those who have battle experience with the so called "nice creature" is highly pointless. Trust me, with our experience, you'd be surprised what we think of Blissey these days. (Why do you think the majority of advanced battlers stray away from Blissey? With just how much it can take out by itself, there's great reason to hate it.) In fact, just to show that hate, I plan to give Whitney her own Blissey for my Deadliest Tournament fic. (Though you'll be quite surprised by a little something I have planned.)

Anyways, now that I think about it, you're right. It just doesn't work for the story. Okay, drop the idea of Blissey being Scrooge.

My second choice was Meowth, so I'll go with that. (Besides, there are some points where Scrooge being a Persian just doesn't work.)

Okay, so here are the changes made to the cast list:

Scrooge: Meowth

GoC Past: Mew
GoC Present: Blissey (In the movies, it was always someone big and nice. I wanted to go with Jirachi at first, but the size hardly fits the role. Also, the Ghost was always male, I think it's time for a change.)
GoC Yet-to-Come: Mewtwo

Bob Crachet: Smeargle

Mr. Fezzywinks: Snorlax (I KNOW no one picked this, but it seems to fit. Besides, have you ever seen a jolly Snorlax before?)

Isabelle: Delcatty (Works well with a ship I've been a fan of for quite some time.) Note: I'll prove that nicely with my next chapter of the Deadliest Tournament.

Tiny Tim: Pichu (Okay, I know Pichu is overused in important roles for stories, but don't worry, I plan to make up for that. After all, I think it'll be nice to see a crippled Pichu.)

Of course, that really sets itself up for the rest of the Crachet family.

The rest of the Crachet family: Pikachu/Raichu/Smeargle. (There's really not much choice there. In order for it to make sense, I'm stuck with this. Of course, we all know Ms. Crachet gets to be a Pikachu/Raichu.)

That's all I got right now. I'm still trying to decide what Fann (Scrooge's sister) should be. I'll hopefully pick something good.

Choices close tomorrow. Choose now before it's too late. :)

See ya later. ^_^
