Title: Pokémon RP Kanto quest, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 03, 2010, 03:35:28 AM
It might sound like a stupid idea. But I'm actually serious, rather this than FF7.

The RP has started!
Pokémon RP, The adventure begins. (http://www.charas-project.net/forum/index.php?topic=27075.0)

I'm pretty sure that everyone at least played one game so at least the first 150 of the 490 should be common.

All you need to do to sign up is writing this:



If you discovered this after the Rp started - you can always join in along the way, it's a big world after all.

Note: Please don't include too many of the Black and White pokés since I'm pretty sure that the Japanese names will change and that most of us don't really know much about them.

..................................
Things that would be nice to know though:
Where should this take place? I want people's opinions on this since some people like more freedom than others. We don't want someone catching a Dragonite in Viridian Forest and 4 other people throwing a tantrum over it.
How much story do you want? Same here, some people like to go about their own pace and story while others prefer a more story-thick RP. I'm ready to do both while avoiding too many of the TV-show clichés.(Although I only watched the first season the pokémon tv show.)
If we want a story-based rp, would people prefer to travel as one group to begin with or do you prefer crossroads?

Things that you should know!
Will take place in a fictional Kanto (The place where Red,Blue and Yellow took place.
A really malicious team rocket is currently exploiting the Kanto region.
Gyms, contests and such will not be available until the area is free from oppression (in most cases, it all depends on).
I will be understanding with people breaking habitants and behaviour of wild pokémon.
Be aware that levels and such are relative. I won't be all "You can't beat Lt.surge with a low levelled poké like that!" if the story takes us to Vermillion city and people want to challenge the gym.

[spoiler= Facts about Team Rocket]
A malicious team as mentioned before, under new management they have increased their horrific behaviour and is nowdays doing more wrongs than before.

Examples of criminal activity:
[/spoiler]

Some basic rules lads:
  • Feel free to use any NPC with only your fantasy(or decency) as the boundary.
  • Try NOT to use a "connected character" that one of your fellow participants created. If it is someone's father, brother, rival, daughter. Let them be as much as you can allow yourself to avoid upsetting someone. Of course. Some people won't mind if you add a little personal touch the the whole thing (like me).
  • Try not to control other player's characters too much. If you want a change of scenery write something along the lines "And then they went to...", this does not point of specific people doing something, so if someone object - he can claim that he stayed behind or went somewhere else.
It's interesting that people get to know each others characters so well that the story seems to go well with people controlling each other from time to time. Might not need any rules after all.
I might have to make up new rules as we go if people have opinions about what others do.

If you have any wondering or such, feel free to send me a PM.

One of those news were Admin Saiar from across the sea sent by the Boss to get things done. She confronts the goons of Vermillion and lets them know that treating pokémon like crap ain't good. But it has nothing to do with love and care. It's about keeping the blade clean before cutting. A broken sword won't do good when someone breaks it further, it needs to be sharpened.
At the same time, the operation to secure the Silph building is going according to plan.

Post by: ellie-is on October 03, 2010, 11:30:10 AM
I think we should do this on Kanto, more people know about it. And Kanto is connected to Johto, so if this goes on long enough we can go there.
But also let people be born wherever they want. So they can have a starter poké from another area, and then travel to Kanto or something.

Story is fun. One group is fun. Cross roads are complicated, for me at least. I guess people should be free to do that... But also keep some people in one big group, that the other guys will end up in, later. I would be in that group.

And yeaah, maybe keep it just to the pokés that you can actually find or at least make sense. No catching a Dragonite in Viridian Forest, but maybe make it so we can find Beedrills in there. We can't find them ingame, but all those Weedles gotta come from somewhere, plus those Kakunas gotta evolve some day.


Also... Will this be set before or after the games? Aka, has a ten year old already beaten the most powerful trainers in the world, and is the badass pokémon mob in hiding because a kid kicked their boss's ***?

Agreed.

I'll gladly join if enough people want to as well. Still needs a bit more background before I can come up with something for my dude, though.

I may actually do this. But, mayhap there should be an... RP mod? Someone that determines probabilities without bias. Like a ref? Those probabilities being catch rate, who wins a match, things like that.

Well, if we did that, then it's more like Dungeons and Dragons than an RP. I'm sure most of the participants would know that conflict with failure is more interesting than success at every turn.

I've not really done much RP before, but this sounds like my kind of plot and characters. =D

Name: Joseph
Starting Pokémon: Totodile
Trainer Type:
Triathlete
Attitude: Joseph is kind of a lazy triathlete and fails at everything he attends. "Surf?  Who needs it when you could swim! ... Actually, Surf sounds like a better plan.  Swimming is hard work."
Story: Joseph recently moved to Pallet Town to live with his mother after living in Johto's Olivine City with his grandparents.  He got his Totodile as a goodbye gift from his grandparents.  It loves eating and play, being a perfect match for the trainer.  After living a few months in Pallet Town and not making many friends, he decided to head out on a journey and see the world on his bike.  On his Pokémon journey he hopes to overcome his laziness and one day become a master at Pokémon and riding a bike.  Of course, he may need to learn how to get the training wheels off first.

<-That is him


Is that good?  Whats funny is I have never used Totodile before.  I'm more a Cyndaquil kinda guy.

If people think that we need this then we could get one of them. The question is just how very cannon the ref should be.
And I think that people would realise that catching a chansey on the first ball isn't very reasonable from personal experience, but it depends on.

Also... Will this be set before or after the games? Aka, has a ten year old already beaten the most powerful trainers in the world, and is the badass pokémon mob in hiding because a kid kicked their boss's ***?
Depends on if people want the classic team rocket and all that, we could always introduce a new team of baddies and ignore the fact that Red Ash ever existed.

Quote
And yeaah, maybe keep it just to the pokés that you can actually find or at least make sense. No catching a Dragonite in Viridian Forest, but maybe make it so we can find Beedrills in there. We can't find them ingame, but all those Weedles gotta come from somewhere, plus those Kakunas gotta evolve some day.
Yeah, sure. If one of the pokés from an evolution lines can be found in a place, maybe the others would as well, but I don't want people cathing a bunch of butterfrees and beedrills the first thing that happens, nor gravelers and golems, Nidoqueens and nidokings. There's gotta be some sense since those pokés would probably whip all of us together.


Also, I suppose the basic story will either be the classic:
"Pokémon professor is too lazy to do his cataloguing of pokémons himself and sends out a bunch of kids to do it for him. A fantastic story that stretches beyond time and place."
Or
"An evil team of baddies is wreaking havoc around the land and stops a bunch of eager trainers from completing their goals of becoming the best trainer in the world. An amazing tale of following your dreams."
OR
"Since the evil team of baddies have taken control of most towns with force and also stopped gyms and leaders from fulfilling their duties, a bunch of trainers decide to fight the evil team no matter where the battle takes them. An epic story about doing what's right."
OR
Simply something else, more detailed and thought-through.

EDIT: Why not make those things what people can base their characters on? I assume that people would like some Team of Baddies-action no matter what the story is about. Those roads would probably intertwine into one big group with one shared goal but different dreams to fulfil.

I'll join this. Sounds fun.
I like the story of the towns already been taken over. One that isn't used in every single game. But I'll go with either story.

Character:
Name: Corey
Starting Pokemon: Starly
Trainer Type: Artist
Attitude: Hates seeing people in need. Will more often than not do what is right, but is not always perfect.
Story: Corey never trained Pokemon during his time in Sinnoh and since he was 20 years old most of his friends got on him hard about it. He generally just draws Pokemon that he sees and has always admired Smeargle wishing to have one. He decides to start a new life in Kanto and plans to become a good trainer. As a parting gift his best friend handed him a PokeGear(with his phone number already in it) and an extra Pokemon he had. That Pokemon was a Starly.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 04, 2010, 01:31:45 PM
Okay, I will make a character too.

Name: Lucas
Starting Pokémon: Aron
Trainer Type: Super Nerd
Attitude: He is a smart guy who can't stand how easily influenced the people of his town are, and has never adopted the "trends" that spread through his island. Strong morals and will always do what he believes to be the right thing.
Story:Born in the small town of Dewford, he always felt like nobody ever understood him. At the age of ten, he found an abandoned egg near Granite Cave, which turned into his Aron a few days later. He never used his Poké to fight, but he studies a lot and knows everything about Pokémon battles.
On his 17th birthday, he decided to become a trainer, and left Dewford by boat to Vermillion city, where he hopes to start collecting Gym badges.
Extra info: At the begining of the adventure, Aron has no Pokéball, as Dewford has no marts and he was born from an egg.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 05, 2010, 12:39:36 PM
Name: Frank
Trainer type: Ace trainer (cool trainer)
Attitude: Awesome. Likes to battle hard and rough, healing items are for wuzzies. If the poké can't fend for itself - it's useless and needs more training.
Story: Never really got into the pokémon hype in Mahogany Town until he was attacked in tall grass, the day afterwards he imported (online) what he thought was a really strong legendary bird poké. It turned out to simply be a Murkrow.
But it was a start. Frank quickly caught a party of pokémon and dumped the Murkrow in the PC system since it was really weak compared to his new cool party. One day he received a ticket from the Kanto Elite four inviting him to take place in the tournament. But once he arrived by train the customs declared that the pokés he was carrying had to be scanned and checked before being allowed entrance into Saffron City...
Frank realized that something was odd when he was left at the station with no passport, money nor pokémon. He hurried to the nearest Pokémon centre only to realize that someone had used his ID to trade all of his strong reserves to an unknown receiver. Left in his box was nothing more than the very first poké he got. A neglected Murkrow.
Now Frank has to start anew from square 1 in Saffron City, the city of cities with a dream to become strong once more and to find out who duped him so badly.
(PS: Frank quickly got himself a new account and asked for a new passport, but both are still under production.)
Starting Poké: Murkrow



So, this is the plan:
Kanto (where the rp will take place to begin with) is currently under the "occupation" of a malicious team that tries to get their hands on the strongest of pokémon (But no, they do not do that by raising Rattatas, Zubats, Ekans and Koffings).
Their current objective is to find the whereabouts of a "Legendary Bird pokémon" that was seen landing somewhere in the Kanto region. Of course, since they have most of the place locked down - they take the advantage to use the people Team Cypher-style. Everything from kidnappings/pokénappings , threats, force, dupes, blackmail - you name it.
They want to fulfil their goals and they will stop at nothing.
PS: The team does not have a name yet, I need to come up with something suiting.


I won't be a bitch about finding what where, if you feel like catching a rare specimen of Schyter in a forest, or finding a Ledyba in a grassy field I won't mind. The pokés and their habitants changed a bit between R/B/Y and G/S/C after all.
What I'm trying to say is that I understand that people does not want to be limited to where we are right now. But keep in mind that it is also part of the charm so try not to abuse it.


Do you guys want me to make a list with all pokés where we can scratch the pokés we catch? /supernerding

Do you guys want a RP-ref that decides wherever or not it's probable that we win/ catch / encounter *pokémon*?


I'm gonna give you guys some more days to object to anything you feel is crazy.

Post by: X_marks_the_ed on October 05, 2010, 04:55:11 PM
I can't believe I forgot this.

Name: Edwin
Starting Pokemon: Clefairy
Trainer Type: Ordinary Guy (Battle Revolution, apparently)
Attitude: Edwin is defensive about what others say and think about him, and is quick to strike back, though not very effectively. He is not above accepting help, but one can expect his eyes upon them at all times. He also rejects any complement towards his father.
Story: Al Stalberg is known for being the greatest trainer to come from the Tin Isles, but he was a lousy father. He left his family to further his skills shortly before his wife, Sarah passed away, leaving a small boy and the family pet to be relocated time after time for several years. With what remains of his family, Edwin decides to find his father and show him what had happened, and to punish him for the years of suffering they had endured without his care.

This is getting pretty darn fine guys.
I'm still gonna wait a day or two to see if anyone else wants to join and see if Dren posts a profile.

And I will simply assume that people like what I've decided since no one is complaining.

Post by: ellie-is on October 05, 2010, 05:10:38 PM
Indeed.

Can we go with Team Rocket for a team? Feels pretty familiar. And unlike all other teams, they made a lot more sense. They got the money for their evil ways from the casinos they owned, and the leader was also a gym leader, which I bet gave him money and political power.
Just give them better pokés and they will be the perfect pokémon mafia.

Post by: A Forgotten Legend on October 05, 2010, 06:50:04 PM
I agree with Lucas.  Seeing a Team Rocket grunt with a Grimer isn't as scary as seeing one with a Sneasel or something.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 05, 2010, 06:55:52 PM
You kidding? Grimer is monster made of goo, its ****ing badass. :P

But yeah, lets replace Rattatas and Zubats with Houndooms and Skarmories. And instead of Grimers, Muks. Because if they are grunts of the badass pokémon mob: they have to be good trainers.

I'm okay with or without a ref. It was just a suggestion to keep things fair. But we all know each other and I'm pretty confident we're not gonna be dicks about this. Also, I will post a profile tomorrow. I need more time to think about it.

I like prpl mages plot. And I think, for reference, we should just stick to the best of our knowledge where wild pokemon are and aren't. I feel like a pretty big nerd saying this, but I know pretty damn well where kanto/johto pokemon are.

It's not like you're the only big nerd around here then. I got a pretty good idea of where to find most pokés. Remakes or not.

Same here, from gen 1 to 3, remakes included, I know where every poké is.

Okay! I hope this isn't too much. If people don't like this, then I'll change it. I wrote it on the basis that this story was not taking place during the same time frame as red/blue.


Christopher Lennick
Age: 19
Hair: Brown, short
Eyes: Brown
Body Type: 5 feet 7 inches. Kind of lanky. Lean but in shape.
Bio: Son to Richard Lennick, Pewter City gym leader. As an only child, Chris has big shoes to fill. He often doesn't feel like he'll ever be ready to become a gymleader. He loves pokemon and training them, but is still learning. His father has taught him a lot about pokemon types, battle strategies, caring for pokemon, etc. But experience is what he lacks to set the knowledge in his head. Chris knows the pokemon around where he lives, but is mostly unfamiliar with pokemon in farther regions.

Chris has been raising a Geodude since he was 16. His father, Richard, gave him one when he felt it was time. Thought most kids start off at a younger age, Richard wanted to make sure Chris was entirely ready to take on the full time task of raising a pokemon properly. Since then, Chris has caught a sandshrew, which doesn't seem to like him much, and a jigglypuff, which became more attached to Chris's mom, Elliot. Chris hasn't really bothered training the jigglypuff.

Chris's Sandshrew:
Nickname: Sandy
Gender: Female
Nature: brazen, unruly.

Chris's Geodude:
Nickname: Dudley
Gender: Male
Nature: Calm, reserved.

Jigglypuff:
Nickname: Ploof
Gender: Female
Nature: Carefree, happy.

MOST IMPORTANT BACK STORY

Richard has been missing for 3 months. No one knows where he went or what happened to him. He did however, leave the boulder badges behind. Chris did his best to maintain the gym and turned challengers away. Until one day, a stranger came that demanded someone fight him for the boulder badge. The unknown man insulted Richard, calling him "a lazy and careless gymleader who should be stripped of his title". Chris, feeling obligated to defend his dad's honor, fought the man and lost to a single powerful pokemon. The man took a boulder badge and left. Chris closed the gym after that. He locked the doors and wouldn't even go inside.

I don't mind it, got a brilliant idea on an event from this.

But having the father's name in there kinda confused me, I kept thinking it was the character itself. Might be because of AFLs character... Maybe not.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 07, 2010, 04:59:25 PM
Yeah, I just noticed AFL's character name, so I'm gonna change while I still can!

This would be my first serious attempt at rping, so I hope adding some back story in with the father wasn't some form of "godmodding" or some other big no.

Not at all, I have no problem with it.

Gonna start a new thread for the actual rp pretty soon. Trying to keep all discussions and new arrivals posting here. Might as well summarize a synopsis as the time passes.



Some basic rules lads:
I might have to make up new rules as we go if people have opinions about what others do.


If you have any wondering or such, feel free to send me a PM.

The RP was started!

Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 07, 2010, 07:00:21 PM
Just some ideas to consider.

-I propose setting this a good 20 or 30 years after red/blue. So, this is a neo-Team Rocket, if you will. And they've done far more damage then they ever have before. Atleast, that's what it seems to me is the direction we're heading.

-We've got characters here that clearly just want to become pokemon masters. That's another idea to keep in mind.

-If Team Rocket is so big and powerful, why doesn't the elite four step in and whoop their ***es? Unless, the obvious happens. The Elite Four of this time are controlling Team Rocket.

-Also, if we decide on a good 20, 30 year gap. Professor Oak should be dead. So who does that leave??? Professor... Gary?

Just some random blurbs of ideas.

EDIT: OOO! I have a great idea. A darker take on Pokemon. In the twilight years of pokemon, all pokemon seem to have been discovered. The relevance of pokemon research is waning, becoming more specialized to scientists rather than adventurers. Whoever the professor is decides handing out pokedex is a futile venture, since most pokemon have already been documented. I'm not sure where to go from there, just a proposal. Something will have to happen to spark the new professor's interest. Also, more creative ways in attaining pokedex's.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 07, 2010, 07:05:27 PM
Maybe the Team Rocket dudes are stronger than the Elite 4? That makes sense. Plus, being evil, they are not limited to six pokes at a time or one (or two) pokes per round in a battle.

And I was thinking something like 5 years after Johto games (which is 8 years after red and blue and likely sapphire emerald as well, and by that logic 5 years after gen IV, but anyway), but 20-30 years could work as well, as long as the world hasn't changed much other than the people.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 07, 2010, 07:10:19 PM
That makes sense too. I could be down with that. Team Rocket would be using "dishonorable" tactics, sending three or four pokemon on one. I'm not too concerned with the timeframe after red/blue. It's just a suggestion.

All my ideas can easily be denied if you guys don't like them. I really won't be offended. They're just ideas

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes YES.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 07, 2010, 07:16:47 PM
I'm gonna start by saying that it's a fictional Kanto, it's based on Kanto but might not be the same as the game or the anime. Don't get to stuck on the time or place; proceed as you want.

With Elite four controlling team rocket - nope I didn't have that thought - it would be too much like the manga I assume. Let's face it, what did Lance and the rest do when the Silph scope building was occupied in R/B/Y? Not a single thing. Gym leaders and Elite four aren't some kind of police. They are strong trainers. And strong trainers do what strong trainers want. Also, one of the elite four might not be enough to defeat a whole gang of team rocket members. It might take more than 2 even. And who will remain at the Indigo Plateau and take care of their profession - being the elite four?

And with the pokémon master aspect, it would be no fun if they could become masters easily. Gotta make them sweat a little on the way. With team rocket controlling areas and affecting the locals, things won't always flow so fluently. It's the effort that makes the goal.

Edit. Drats, Lucas kinda wrote what I was thinking about the E4.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 07, 2010, 07:30:38 PM
Okay, so Team Rocket is just really powerful. The Elite four might be able to stop them, but since they're comparable to modern gangsters then we'll equate the elite four and gym leaders to professional athletes. They're powerful, but they're just celebrities nonetheless.

As for the pokemon master, I completely understand this. I think my point was more so that some characters won't be interested in becoming a pokemon master. But that's all in the RP to be discovered, soooo kind of a useless point to make. =P

For some reason, I really like the 20 to 30 years after red/blue (if only for Professor Gary). But I also like the "fictional kanto" that prpl proposed. I like them both for the same reason: a familiar region with different people and (maybe) some familiar faces.

EDIT: Also, a question. Can I post in an RP a part of the story my character is going through if it's completely unrelated to what another or all the other characters are doing? Or should I wait for an appropriate time to post info?
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 07, 2010, 07:35:21 PM
I added Surge in my post. It could  still be 20 years after, though. Watson was REALLY old and still a gym leader. And Lt Surge seems like the kind of guy who is healthy. His old Raichu wasn't enough to beat the gangsters, though.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 07, 2010, 07:38:14 PM
The first posts is usually an introduction post. I explained how my character got to where he was, Lucas did the same. Like every story first introduces the character to the audience.
If we feel that something is irrelevant we'll probably just skip that part of the post.

Everyone writes in a unique way so I won't tell you how to write. Write like you feel like writing.

P Drats, no easy way to make the pokéyen sign.

Nice post.

Also, to answer to corey's question on the thread, I think game cries would be better.  Sure, if anyone catches that parrot, he can say its own name, but I think it would be better if others just did their in game cries :P
Like Ed's Zubat's "EEEEEEEEE".

I just made my Starly nod for now. Next post he will make noise YAY!.
I was planning on meeting you in Diglett Cave. But assumed that since Starly is not a Kanto Pokemon he would have been noticed early on, and assumed Diglett cave may be more hidden than "take a right off the dock and BAM you see it".
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 09, 2010, 05:17:16 AM
What noise you decide that things can make is up to you. If you like 'em to say only the letters of its name - so be it. But for example the game - it would be a lie to claim that pokés say their names. Like Golbat.

So it's highly personal. you don't have to write "eeeeeeeeeh" or "graaaauuuwr" unless you really want to. It's enough to write that "Zubat let out a screeching cry" or something along the lines. Personal way of writing.

perhaps we should create a timeline? Just to clear up some confusion of when and where these events are taking place. Something simple, like, for example, at the beginning of prpl's first post would go "DAY 1, Route 1". THAT simple, and if a day passes, then we're on DAY 2, referring to the amount of days since Rocket invaded pallet town, since prpl's character's story began.

Well, nothing says that my character arrived at Viridian the same day he heard the news in Saffron. And since then I haven't made any notice to what time of the day it is.
I don't know when your stuff takes place since you started out with a lot of back story. And I don't know what day or time of the day Corey and Lucas arrived in Vermillion.
If someone feels that the exact time is important for a certain event - I suspect they will tell. But what we're doing on our own and how time passes just don't affect other people that much. Well until people meet up, then you have to be in the same present.

If people think we should have a day count. Just say so and we'll introduce it. I'm just afraid that we suddenly realize that the Rockets have owned Saffron for 2,5 years after a while.

That's cool, I wasn't sure if the day was really important to someone or not. And I get what you're saying about everyone realizing what needs to happen with rocket. Atleast with my character, there is a reason he's headed to pallet town, and it's not to stop rocket.

If anything, this seems to be, judging by people's writings, a time of increased violent rocket behavior. That's how I'm taking it. Like, Rocket has been on top for x amount of years, but has recently become very active, kidnapping, stealing pokes, beating up trainers, frequently.

I hope I'm not making them too evil. I'm more looking for bad like Michael Jackson bad. (I know you can picture a bunch of rockets dancing that there dance).
I have my principles like pokés not attacking humans with physical attacks if they ever do. 'Cuz it's kinda worse than unleashing an energy attack like hyper beam or elemental stuff like hydro pump, whirlwind ect, ect.
Also I don't feel that pokés could kill other humans just like that. Which is why people end up unconscious when resisting team rocket.

But write me a PM and quote the unnecessary evil if you feel that something is stepping over the line.

It wasn't directed at you. I was just stating what personal rules I like to play with. Wouldn't be fun if the Gyarados would've used Ice fang or Bite. Kinda hard to explain how we got out of that one.

Also, Lucas seemed to understand how this "new" pokédex works. Think of it as Bulbapedia or sites like it. Most information you'll need about a poké.

Lucas: Yes, I know.

All of a sudden people start catching thing. Updated the list thingy on the first page of this thread so you can check if in doubt.

Also, let's assume that people can filter out information with their pokedexes, no point in writing every single thing(at least not me) Frank don't have the patience to listen to a lecture every time he saps by a pokémon and prefer just the basic non-duh information that gets stored.
Like:
name, "title, type, the description and maybe weaknesses. What else is there to know when you're too cool to care?
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 11, 2010, 02:19:03 PM
yeah, I'm sure "the professor" has put options for customization on his pokedexi. Just because my pokedex says all that crap, doesn't mean yours will or has too.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 11, 2010, 02:31:57 PM
Also, lets try not get our pokés too powerful. Sure, we can evolve them and all, but lets make it more like real life than the games.
Like, think about the anime. Pokés take ages of training to evolve. In the game it takes a couple hours. With anime evolving time, stuff would be like they are in the games. Aka gym leader with Geodude and not Graveler. If it was like the player character for everyone, in the games everyone would have a last stage Poké in their parties, including the bug catching kid or the one with shorts.

This is more of a personal choice, but I'm trying not to use levels that much. It sounds kinda weird.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!

I'm thinking of  training that damn Mankey haha.

Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 11, 2010, 03:02:58 PM
I personally like levels for comparison, it sounds odd, but I'll make sure all level references come from the pokedex. So, never shall you hear Chris say, "Dear God! That Mudkip's at level 47!" So yeah. And I agree with the evolution and training thing. Hence why my Sandshrew grew only one level after a bit of training. Also, I was considering for the first gymleader, which I'm assuming will be the Earthbadge. He could be a younger trainer, like falkner and brock, similar in that there pokemon aren't ridiculously strong, but are strong in contrast to beginner trainers.

That may or may have not been obvious, I'll just see how this turns out.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 11, 2010, 03:20:40 PM
I like threat levels. They sound so abstract and yet so rewarding.
Like:
Caterpie, threat level none
Onix, threat level low
Or After evolution
Steelix, threat level moderate.
Finding a salamence in the woods
Salamence, threat level deadly
Golem, threat level challenging
Dragonite, threat level high

Might just be me, but making it all about numbers will probably make it too number oriented Like how we are in Viridian and some pokés are rather high already if you compare it to the game. Would be odd if a trainer half way through have to carry a lvl 80 poké to be a challenge.
But I will let everyone do as they wish, I won't write what level my crew is unless everyone else starts to.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 11, 2010, 03:28:38 PM
Yeah, I'm with Prpl.
As for the Gym... It used to be owned by Rocket's leader, who's probably dead by now or really old. So maybe Gary who took it after he was beaten. But I'm not sure if Prpl wanted to make Gary the professor.
But I think Rockets would own this gym. Its a matter of pride, they gotta take back what was theirs.

So we're till in the early stages of figuring this rp out. I'll gladly change a few things around in my post. I like the threat level idea too, I hadn't even thought of that. To keep things simple and fair, from now on I won't refer to levels. But I did change some numbers around in my previous post. Geodude is level 15, Sandy is level 9, and the hoot hoot is level 7.

You are all as much part of this rp as the rest of us so go with the thing you're thinking about, there's no real "right & wrong" after all.

Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: coreystranick on October 11, 2010, 05:50:42 PM
Yeah, I don't really watch the anime, so as I'm writing I'm thinking of how it would be in the game. I don't really grind much in the games though either.

I like the threat levels though, definately fits better. I'll go with that from now on, whenever I get my Dex that is or when I have others use theirs on mine.

EDIT:
So how is everyone else keeping track of there pokemon? I've got my avatar changing every time I catch one. Possibly gonna get a line up or something in my sig maybe not a trainer card.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!

Post by: coreystranick on October 11, 2010, 09:56:08 PM
i don't know if I'll get a total of six or not.
Still deciding really.

EDIT: Yeah trainer card much better. And if new people join they don't have to look far (if they miss the spoiler in the first post) to see what everyone has. I may add the nicknames to mine too.  Plus it makes it easier for Purple to update.

AFL got a unique trainer card here compared to the rest of ya.

And well, the reason why I wanted to have it on the first page was to keep order. And I just don't want people to feel depressed for catching pokés if it would mean updating the trainer card.

But I love the trainer card idea. Gonna make one myself later on. I just don't want people to think that they have to have one.

I don't see the point until I decide to get more. Two Pokemon aren't that hard to remember. (Plus, if my brother were to see that I'm even posting in the RP, I'd never hear the end of it.)

AFL got a unique trainer card here compared to the rest of ya.
It was one o fthe choices on the site. I wanted to make mine with Charas colours, though. But his looks kinda better.

And I will continue to update the list on the first page wherever or not everyone gets a trainer card. Sometimes people get too lazy to update.

I think the gym would let us watch the fight. In the anime, they let people do it.
And in the games, the guy on the door watches it and tells you that it was a great battle.

EDIT: Also... You and Joe were in the center,not me. Joe is still there. :P

Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: RockJohnAxe on October 13, 2010, 07:54:41 AM
Alright ive been fighting it long enough, but this looks like fun.

Name: Rock john Axe (First name: Rock john,    last name: Axe)
First Pokemon: Rattata
Trainer Type: Martial Artist
Attitude: A Very honorable and respectful person although stern and fair.
Story: Rock john has been a trainer for many years. When he was young he found a wounded Rattata and nursed it back to health. As he grew older he became very obssessed with the Rattata family and decided to open his own Dojo which he calls "Ratta-Dojo". The Dojo was designed to help trainers toughen there pokemon and learn new techniques. Rock john is very dedicated and spends the majority of the day Training with his Pokemon or helping others at his Dojo.
He has applied many times to the Pokemon League in hopes to turn his Dojo into a Full-on Gym with its own Badge but has been denied every time. One day he hopes to have his own Gym.

Extra info: Rock john Rarely keeps his pokemon in there ball. He also isnt shy to step-up if trouble is brewing. He has been very busy opening his Dojo and hasn't acquired many badges yet.

Pokemon Info: The Rattata currently in his group was hand picked from several rattatas. It greatly out-performed the others. Rock johns first 2 Rattata's have become Raticates.
Sandschrew was found shortly after opening his Dojo and was trained to a Sandslash.
The Squirtle was a very lucky find. The Squirtle has an attitude but still obeys Rock john.

Pokemon Names: Earthquake and Crusher are his 2 Ratticates, his Rattata is named Zikkrit, his squirtle is named Splash and his Sandslash is named Sandslash lol.

Special Techniques: His 2 Ratticates when fighting together can use a move called "Hyper Double Fang" which causes considerable damage.

Goals: To capture a Scyther or a Machop and evolve it.

Edit: Lets say the Dojo is in Verillian since thats where everyone is atm.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 13, 2010, 08:38:48 AM
Welcome aboard. But you do have quite the advantage compared to the rest of us with 3 evolved pokés.

Also, you can have your dojo anywhere. It's not like people don't travel.

Oh wow.  I wish my pokémon were stronger... I would go over to the gym, but I feel like just my Totodile wouldn't be enough to handle those pokémon.  I'm pretty sure I'm a few levels behind you all.  Haha
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 13, 2010, 07:32:36 PM
Haha. But you have a type advantage, we didn't! Plus, at this point he only has one diglett left. Even if it was like, Diglett + Dugtrio. Pidgey could take a diglett. Totodile is strong enough to finish off a Dugtrio with some luck and water guns. :P
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on October 13, 2010, 07:39:05 PM
Well, I imagine Totodile to be about level 8 now, and Pidgey I caught just outside Veridian, so its probably only a level 5 max.

Sai, you know, you never made your profile.
I'm a bad guy. I don't go around sharing information to a bunch of kids. Since I'm kind of playing the forces of darkness here I wouldn't want to give away all my secrets too quickly!

I guess I can do the basics, though you'll have to understand that certain information is ommitted for plot-related reasons

Name: Saiar Karat
Trainer type: Rocket Admin
What your character is like and the classic RP introduction: cold and ruthless. Has some very different ideology on Pokemon training and what Team Rocket should be doing than most of the other admins or grunts, but none of this makes her in any way a good person.
Where you're from: "across the sea" - she refuses to specify
Your starting poké: she has many, but uses a standard team of 6. I'll reveal them all eventually, but for now I can safely say that there's a Koffing and an Espeon on the team. The Koffing is sort of hax in ways that will eventually become more clear.

And ya, i made lucas come back because i wanted to give him the squirtle.

Lucas, can you atleast awknowledge my squirtle offer (yes/no) and then say you headed back towards pewter.

He looks at Lucas. "Hey... that damn squirtle actually listened to you... Ive had him for years and he still wont do a damn thing i ask him. Honestly if you want him, you can have him. He seems to really like you..."

.... FOR NOW

Post by: RockJohnAxe on October 15, 2010, 04:55:38 PM
maybe desperate wasnt the right word, but machine guns will force people more than some poorly trained pokemon when trying to steal from seasoned trainers.

and for rockets, machine guns are a pretty extreme measure.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!

Well, we can't fight machine guns period. At least, not without steel pokemon >_> Probably better to keep real weapons scarce.

Sai - Nice sig, love the sprite.

Also, Rocket got the upper hand here with really strong pokémon compared to the average trainer. So machine guns.... nah. I didn't really like that. I can get batoons and whips but anything that can cause bleeding seems like a hard thing to explain. We can't dodge everything.
And I kinda felt that it was everyone's reaction.

And I updated the catch and location thingy on the first page. Should be more correct now.

Yeah, mt moon is a stone's throw from pewter. Actually going through the tunnel is a mission that will require planning. I haven't trained my pokemon too much, so mt moon is perfect for them. Plus, I want atleast one gym badge before heading to cerulean.

Yes, agree'd. I'll take the line "they had gotten a lot of training in already." as mentioning a lot of training/battles gone unmentioned.

EDIT: I also regret naming my pokemon. I never name pokemon, but I figured people in real life would to form a stronger bond. I'm terrible at coming up with a dozen nicknames .

Did we ever decide how much time has passed? I need to know if certain characters from the games would be still alive / still acting as trainers.

Personally, I'd go with no more than 5-10 years after the HGSS games.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 17, 2010, 05:27:25 PM
Well, according to Dren's post - Gary is 62.

And well, it's a fictional Kanto so some trainers and people migth never have existed and so on. And some could be born later as well.
But no real time has been decided, Lucas wrote something earlier in this thread though.
I'm pretty sure they kinda decided on 20-30 years after or so...
But hey, I don't care about time and place.

Anyway. Sai and Ed should pm each other about their cerulean ideas if you guys haven't already. Don't want people running over each other.

For the most part, my activities in Cerulean aren't very big. Cerulean is the home of Edwin's rival, now a rocket stationed there as well. (The rocket whose Pokeball he stole in the beginning.) Then, there's that other Rocket out for Edwin for humiliating his Houndoom.

That's all I have. I'm also juggling around another idea, but the two Rockets are enough for me at the moment. I'm more interested in what SaiKar has up his sleeve.

EDIT: Gotta remember, Rocket is a proper noun in these posts. >.<

EDIT 2: Sai, we agreed that as long as the Pokemon was plausible at the location, it can be found. We're not limiting ourselves to strict RBY.

Well, you guys can do whatever you're going to do in Cerulean before I show up as long as you don't leave the area entirely before I get there. My "plot" is going to be coming with me, so to speak. My next post should make everything clear what I have planned.

Pokeball? Or did she throw a Gulpin or something at the magnemite, and used it to hold it?

Yeah, as long as the nature matches the location of the pokémon I really don't see a problem with finding them there. Although the chance that we find a Larvitars in Mt.Moon seems kinda off.

And I'm not sure how long it will take for people to move to Cerulean. Ed might get there soon, but since Lucas, Joe, Chris and Corey are stuck at route 3 - I doubt the gym challenge will happen any time soon.

I was just saying that Sai didn't have to feel stressed out about getting to Cerulean.
I'm pretty certain we'll get stuck in Mt.Moon for a while as well. Just a hunch.

Also, Kabuto is pretty cool. I remember the Red/blue sprites not showing the underside of him. Took a long time before I realized there was another pair of claws and red eyes.

<<... >>....

Character One:

Name: Myrin
Starting Pokemon: Piplup - An inexperienced but very friendly pokemon.
Trainer type: The reluctant Trainer.
What your character is like and the classic RP introduction: Myrin tends to have a bit of a cocky attitude however this all comes to a stop once a Pokemon is too close. That's right. She's afraid of Pokemon for reasons that will be shown as the story progresses. Poor Piplup.
Where you're from: Teacup Town.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v241/Ladybella213/MyrinCard23.png)

Character two:
Name: Veles
Starting Pokemon: Riolu - A ball fo energy who is strangely faithful to Veles.
Trainer type: The conflicted trainer.
What your character is like and the classic RP introduction: There was a point in time where Veles believed in what he was doing. When he knew where his path was going, yet now... Now he's not so sure. "At what costs must we pay to get what we need?"
Where you're from: Patterson City.

Okay, so Articuno is heading toward Cerulean, so anyone who wants to have an encounter with that can feel free, though you'd better have a strategy for dealing with a level 60-ish bird. It knows agility, barrier, ice beam, and roost.

Incidentally, I'm also training a psuedo-rival team for you guys, and I expect there will be a pretty big showdown when we arive in Cerulean with our R shirts. Saiar herself is way out of your league (I don't like assigning levels, but her team is probably high 40s, and she does have 6 even though she's only used 2 so far), but the grunts with her will always be a level or two below you so you can probably beat any of them in a fair fight, but if they team up 2-vs-1 you're probably screwed without really sneaky tactics. Holly has a koffing, pidgey, and magnemite. Alec has a growlithe and a grimer. A third, unnamed boy has a fearow and a houdour. I have no idea what the names or the pokemon of the other three are. These characters are sort of "free game" - you can name them, describe their personalities or their pokemon, even recruit them away from me if you really want to.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 18, 2010, 06:45:22 PM
Sai, I think it would be better if your pokémon made animal sounds like in the games, instead of saying their names, most of them at least. And you don't really have to stick to levels. Saying they are "really strong and can kick your butt" should be enough to describe Articuno.

But other than that, great posts. Can't wait to fight one of your dudes. :p

No. They are not. They are Pokémon, and everytime they enter a battle, you can hear their cries.
They only say their names in the anime.

In the games, lots of Pokemon say their names or parts of their names when you talk to them though.
Name a game. Cannon games. MD doesn't counts (they can talk) and neither does Yellow (it was based on the anime, so they got someone to make Pikachu say his name).

For some reason I can see some Pokémon working. Jigglypuff saying its name sounds natural (damn Smash bros), and Snorlax as well (he also sounds badass while doing it. damn smash bros again), but I just couldn't see a Parasect saying "Parasect!", which it would do in the anime.

So maybe if you kept it to Pokémon that are able to produce more human like sounds. Like Pikachu could say PikaPika (pff, his name is based on the japanese onomatopoeia for rat sounds anyway, makes perfect sense), but maybe lets not make an Octillery say anything, because that would just be weird. :b

Post by: SaiKar on October 18, 2010, 08:35:02 PM
This took longer than I expected, mostly because I couldn't remember where the pokemon sprites are in HGSS. I found a Miltank ("Moo") and slowpoke ("Yawn") that support you, but a polywrath ("Poli poli!") and an abra ("Aabra...") that supports me, and a Machop ("Guooh gogogoh!") that made an attempt at actually spelling his cry, though there's no way in hell I would have gotten that out of his noise.

I'm saying it's enough of a mixed bag not to worry about it.

Post by: RockJohnAxe on October 18, 2010, 10:53:26 PM
ya i dont see an issue. I think the Pokemon can either say there names or a generic noise.

Really its Role playing. Anything can really happen as long as it makes some sense or is done in with some kind of story/background to explain it.

I can also recall playing through Emerald and talking to some of the Pokemon standing around on the map and they said their name.

Edit: Most of my Partys level is in there Early-mid 20s if you wanted an Approx Level.

Also can i create a Pokemon? I basically wanted to create an off-evolution of Raticate that uses a Dark Stone todo. I would make the Sprite :D

Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 19, 2010, 07:11:44 AM
*slaps lucas*
We had this discussion earlier.
And I'll say the same thing now as I said then.
I don't give a friggin crap about how people write.
If someone likes to add actions within "*...*" -marks then so be it. If someone wants to write from an individual perspective like "I packed my bag and headed to Cerulean city, on the way I noticed a chick in her undies and I had some bad thoughts..." then so be it.

Everyone have their own way of saying things, writing things and spriting things. Let them have it like that.
None is an expert when it comes to this. And no one will be an expert.
I also said earlier that writing "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh" like Ed does with his Zubat is okay.
I also mentioned that writing "geo, dud dud - geodude!" is cool
And I also said that simply mentioning the sound is okay. like "Articuno let out an ear deafening howl".
So let it rest dammit.

What noise you decide that things can make is up to you. If you like 'em to say only the letters of its name - so be it.

------------------
@RockJohn : No, I personally wouldn't like if you created your own pokémon. I would however agree to let it pass if you had a miss-coloured pokémon with like one special move that it really shouldn't be able to learn.

That's how I read it.
But I guess Joe tagged along, only that he was forgotten to be mentioned. He was hanging out over with Lucas last time I checked though.

And I'm gonna give Corey some time to see if he wants to challenge the leader before me (Assuming that he's outside the Gym after Frank entered it with Maya).

Also, I kinda love the troupe of rp'rs we got here. You guys are all doing a rad job.

And RockJohn, whatever way it works out is fine by me. If it's not in the cards then it doesn't happen. We'll just keep rp'ing and if the time is ripe and it makes sense in context of the situation, then we'll make it happen. I would love a squirtle though.

Bruce is a Rocket promised to become the Admin of Cerulean once whoever's in charge gives the order to take over Cerulean. For now, Rockets are just stationed there. So no, he's probably there to harass some upper levels.

Ed was given the offer to become a Rocket by Bruce, which he rejected so he could "play hero."

Yeah its cool. I don't even remember writing that haha. Wow.
Well yeah its fine if Frank takes them on first. I'll go second, or whenever possible.

Yeah, I included in my post that there is a "pokeHealer Machine" at the gym. So everyone could fight Elliot if they wanted to. She's no push over though.

Here's her pokemon in a little more detail:
-Omanyte -
Moves, they have them.

-Onix -
Moves, they have them.

-Wigglytuff - Nicknamed Ploof -
Moves, they have them.

Well, to be honest, I'm going by this:

Quote
"Cerulean isn't exactly in our normal, ah, "sphere of influence." Really, no reason to take the town. Not much money to be made there. You may be attacked by the local trainers."

Since I had already created Rockets there to begin with, the best way to make it fit was to have it "considered" by the Rockets, but not worth fully taking over.

Yeah, I included in my post that there is a "pokeHealer Machine" at the gym. So everyone could fight Elliot if they wanted to. She's no push over though.

Here's her pokemon in a little more detail:
-Omanyte -
Withdraw
Water Gun
Rollout
Bite

-Onix -
Rock Throw
Rage
Screech
Tackle

-Wigglytuff - Nicknamed Ploof -
Sing
Disable
Rollout
Pound


Too bad I didn't read this before I made my post. I'll stick with Onix knowing rock slide though, and I kidna figured that Omanyte would as well since I made her hold the tm for it.

I hope I didn't ruin anything.


Oh yeah. Sorry for another long Gym leader fight post.

Nah, whatever, I'll just scrap that post. It's really not a big deal what moves they know.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 19, 2010, 03:54:54 PM
I think I gave them:

Onix:
Rock Slide
Dig

Omanyte:
Leer
Protect
Water gun
Rock slide

Wigglytuff:
Pound
Body Slam
Sing
Disable
------------------
But you can all just forget that you read what moves it knew and stuff like that. Or make it know more news / new moves / another set of moves.

Nope, he's not aware of that.
You guys ditched him so fast that all he knows is from the Nurse in town. And he knows that father left, son took over then the mother. And that the nurse fancy the son. But not that Chris has any relation to the gym - since it was never told.
So he taunted her freely without thinking about anyone else. Feel free to be pissed.

Saiar herself is way out of your league (I don't like assigning levels, but her team is probably high 40s, and she does have 6 even though she's only used 2 so far), but the grunts with her will always be a level or two below you so you can probably beat any of them in a fair fight, but if they team up 2-vs-1 you're probably screwed without really sneaky tactics. Holly has a koffing, pidgey, and magnemite. Alec has a growlithe and a grimer. A third, unnamed boy has a fearow and a houdour. I have no idea what the names or the pokemon of the other three are. These characters are sort of "free game" - you can name them, describe their personalities or their pokemon, even recruit them away from me if you really want to.
I call dibs on fighting Holly when we get to Cerulean. :P

Holly will kick your *** :p No seriously, I don't mind you beating up the Rocket goons as long as you try to do the characters justice. Holly is really spooning up Sai's wacky hardcore rhetoric. She's still pretty much a noob, but she's a fairly clever, resourceful noob for what crappy, badly-trained pokemon she has at her ready.

I know. I have a battle in my mind that should work well. And having a noob facing a dude who has a Pokédex on his head will be funny. She might even learn a few things, because my character can't just watch the opponent do something wrong without explaining their flaw in details, as seen on the previous battles. Nerds. :b

Misty in drag?!

And darn it Prpl, was hoping for a second there that the rockets would try their (admittedly ridiculous) scheme on you. Though it did give some interesting insight into why your character is so pissed at them all the time.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 20, 2010, 07:51:43 AM
I was actually thinking about doing it.
Then I realized that if he would face his old team - he'd get pretty crushed. And I didn't have any good character to wield the old team. A nameless grunt wouldn't be fun. And the Admins are a bit too boring.
So as they said there, they'll wait with the plan 'till he actually becomes a Twineedle in the ***.

Oh and Dren, if Chris lets all of Frank's comments about your mother pass - I'm gonna be a bit disappointed.

I never saw the anime, but I read some recaps. Didn't Ash only win like one or two badges through actually beating leaders in combat, and got a bunch of the rest by performing various do-gooder acts for the leader/town? So yeah, totally possible.

He beat most of them. Though some were just wrong. He beat Brock by doing... Heck I have no idea, but Pikachu killed Onyx with Thunder.

Also... Animes ain't really cannon. I forgot who but someone said something about Ash in their posts. The character from gen 1 games/remakes (and the one you fight in Gen two and the remakes as the last 'boss') is called Red. x]

But suuuure, its a fictional Kanto after all.

Stop getting hung up on the small details. Sheesh.
Get badges - don't get badges. Before this gym, only I, Lucas and Ed got a badge. Now everyone's getting them.

Some people will go traditional trainer style and get badges, some will fight team rocket (which actually was the plan for Frank to begin with... But the whole walking up to Indigo Plateau in Viridian- remembering his old team -  lit the fighting spirit in him.

Patamon for me, he was my favourite. Weak little thing, owned by the youngest and weaker of the boys, that didn't digivolve when everyone else did... But when he did he was incredibly badass, and more powerful than even the others' second evolutions.

"Hm... My earth badge looks like a feeather I wonder if I flap it really hard Im gonna be able to fly"
then lucas flapped it really hard and managed to fly. far away he saw an articuno and was like "omg an articuno, go aron fight it i want that bird!"
aron got out of his ball and evolved into aggron they started fighting

articuno was strong but aggron was awesome and had help of paras (now a parasect) and nidoking who were also awesome and together they managed to beat it with their awesome tri beam attack of poison earth and steel
"i caught articuno now I can be the best trainer in the word1!" said lucas and started using articuno to fly around and catch other legendary pokemons


a few days later he had caugh enteir, raikou, suicune, groudon and arceus, and he used their combined poewrs to start ruling the word by altering reality

he said "i am god now" and everyone listened to him because he was god now
"team rocket i dont want u to exist" and then arceus made them not exist anymore and soon everyone was happy "thank you lucas for ending team  rocket we like you lots!"

lucas was happy that he could rule the world but he did not forget aobut his friends
"chris, for you i will give a celebi so you can travel through time!" thanks man you are awesome, he said
"edwin, you can have suicune because you like water and want to be a water gym" and then edwim became water gym
"corey you can have this smeargle he will teach you to paint more better" wow thanks dude he seemed hpapy
"frank u are an ***, you get a magikarp" and frank said "oh wow thanks a lot, this is what i deserve, thank you lucas"

And then lucas had defeated team rocket and everyone was happy because of his victory. he ruled the world for a thousand years with his god pokemon and everyone liked it and they all lived happy forever

I love Frank's part in this.

Signing off for tonight, sleep tight my apprentices.

I'll have a items one up there soon. The menu is from a game called Shadowgate, I edited it a bit where the Pokemon site, there wasn't that little border on the inside. And as far as badges go if it isn't colored in it means that someone in that group has it but I don't.
Took a long time to just get starly and shinx looking right with minimal colors.

A roleplay succeeding on charas? Holy **** good job guys. Forum roleplay isn't really my bag anymore, but still, I'm impressed. I thought every RP on charas was doomed to die forevermore.

Anyway, carry on.
You know, I thought the same thing. But this RP is just so easy. We all know the subject matter so well that there's none of that awful bog-down-where-nobody-knows-what-is-supposed-to-be-happening nonsense.

Join. You know you want to. Needs more Rockets.

Agreed.

Although the Rocket said "Nidoking" instead of "Nidoqueen", but I doubt a real Rocket would know or care for the difference.

EDIT: I just realized that both Zapdos and Articuno are both headed for Cerulean. That's gonna be one hell of a storm.

What are you talking about? If all three birds showed up at the same place bad things will happen.
And we could probably just barely beat one of them if we teamed up all 5 of team Frank.
We still have some way to go lad.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on October 21, 2010, 04:18:37 PM
We don't have to beat them. They could just go there, meet each other, do some bird things, and then fly a high speed to another point that we won't be able to follow. And then Saiar runs off with the rockets again.

Oh, Saiar is going to attempt to fight Articuno again sometime soon. But with Zapdos also in the area, and the Superkid trainers heading my way, and Cerulean already aggitated because a first group of Rockets is using it as a base camp for the Mt. Moon stuff and now Saiar's group is in town too... well, it's gunna get messy. I expect major, major battles before we leave town.

Edit: also, Over 9000 parody was awesome

You could always fight Articuno before Zapdos gets there.

And yes, it was.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 23, 2010, 02:42:33 AM
I just don't want to go marathon with Lucas since some people are getting behind. RockJohn finally got to pewter and everyone's leaving.
Also, AFL haven't had the chance to post the last pages or so.
And I write too much, so I'm being a good boy waiting a bit so peoples' eyes don't start to bleed.

I could write another Rocket entry though... And I did.

Also made the "people who agreed" go to Chris and sleep, if anyone wants to do something else an "earlier that evening" will be enough.
And I assume that Rockjohn entered the town the day after we fought the gym? Or did he get there before we left?
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 23, 2010, 01:57:25 PM

So, guys, its getting pretty slow. I think either AFL or Corey should post now and get out of the cave, so me and Prpl can post again. And then SaiKar can finally make the two (or three) birds get there, do what she wants to do, and it will be fun again. :P

Post by: SaiKar on October 23, 2010, 06:16:12 PM
I agree. Sorry to say, but if certain people can't keep up, then either they're going to get dragged along as an extra or they're going to be left behind. It's not like there is anything forcing you kiddos to stay as a group anyway.

I'm working on a moderately sized post that brings my little group out of Mt. Moon, through the rocket barricade and to Cerulean. The time we are arriving is around noon, the night after the storm. This is actually ahead of you guys, so if anything is suppose to happen before noon, lemme know. If not, then okay.

Quote of the day: "Goddamn shrews!"

Okay, so here's how my end of the scenario is going to go down. The Mt. Moon Rockets based in Cerulean have already made the townsfolk a bit upset since they're Rockets and therefore jerks. Then Saiar comes in with her group, and Darren comes in with HIS group, and the town figures they're about to be taken over like the other nearby towns. Since there's actually a fair amount of good trainers in this town, when something happens that sets them off, they decide to attack and fight off the Rockets. Big fights all over town. If any of you guys wanted to fight my grunt trainers, that would be a pretty good time. I haven't quite figured out how the birds play into things, or who will win and what will happen when they do, but we can work those into the action when it seems like a good time.

Since Lucas asked, I should probably post this:

Quote
Lucas says:
-Any restrictions for his pokés?
X_marks_the_ed says:
-Lyle likes to keep it down to one Poke (Whiscash), but if things go really badly, he'll use Starmie as well. But the thing is, Lyle fights dirty despite his personality. I think I established this with him striking Weepinbell before it was barely out of the ball.
-He loves to exploit the pools and Whiscash's immunity to electricity.
Lucas says:
-Okay.
-He doesn't have any pokés that stay on land?
X_marks_the_ed says:
-Not really, but Whiscash uses the same ball as Ed's Barboach, so it can go up on land if it needs to.
-But really, I'd only expect Frank to actually face his Starmie.
Lucas says:
-XD
-So everyone else has to lose?
-make sure to post it on the thread then
X_marks_the_ed says:
-No. It's entirely up to you, but if the battle is long and it's pretty equal on both sides, he'll be satisfied with just using Whiscash, but knowing Frank's power, Lyle would probably be motivated to use his Starmie as well.
Lucas says:
-Oh, I see.
-So I beat Wishcash, and I win?
X_marks_the_ed says:
-Yup.
Lucas says:
-Great, great.

YA Sorry guys.

Ive had alot of Project deadlines coming up lately and have been busy like crazy. There have also been some Deadline changes to this weekend, so this week is gonna be fairly hectic.

I was hoping Dren was gonna grab Squirtle when i arrived at Pewter but i guess Chris didnt get a chance.

Hopefully by the weekend i can catch up and continue. Rock john will be training in Pewter for a bit until i post next.

O i LOVE the Rocket Card Saikar :D

Yeah sure. I was waiting for them other people to arrive in the actual town before getting all Rocket on their butts but let's get this party starting then. Ed will have to wait a little longer in the gym then I suppose.

BTW, how many moves did your Qwillfish know? Rollout, Minimize, spikes, stockpile, harden and revenge.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 25, 2010, 08:24:54 AM
Yepp, I made them want the gym as well so that you and Lucas can get some action.
I'll just write some grunts basics here and at least one pokémon they're carrying just in case you're lost.

Darren - in town wreaking havoc
Tyranitar, Butterfree, Graveler, Pidgeotto
Nigel - at the bridge blocking Route 25(?)
Carries a Tentacruel, Tentacool and Meowth.

Bob - Nigel's backup
Carries a Wobbufet and spams potions like mad.
Albert - Darren's backup
Carries a Persian and likes to use thief
Alfred - Darren's backup
Carries a Growlithe and is Alfred's brother
Kirkley - Darren's backup
Carries an Arbok

Rest is up to you. Just remember that these grunts are worse than Saiar's team. A lot worse. Kinda like an appetizer for the real battle.

So yeah....
Joe and Corey is past the bridge, so should Mid's characters be. So to get to town they'll probably have to fight Nigel and Bob unless they find another way.
In town is Darren, Alfred, Albert and Kirkley waiting for hell to break loose. There are also a bunch of local trainers pissed off about all the rocket immigrants.
In the Gym there should be a Lyle, Edwin and Lucas as well as the girl I can't remember.
In the center should be 1 Frank and 1 Chris. Including the Karat Troupe of 6 grunts and the admin herself.
Also expect the toll division of Mt.moon to go where the action is.

Post by: ellie-is on October 25, 2010, 11:14:39 AM
Haha.

Well, I'm doing this closer to the anime, as far as battles go. Where you can yell so your Pokémon dodges at the right time, they can know more than four moves (I don't get why my uber ultimate Houndoom should forget how to bite others because I taught him how to make it sunny), and the terrain matters a little more, like the pools, and some moves work differently (Like Ed's follow me)
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: coreystranick on October 25, 2010, 12:48:16 PM
Yeah, looking at it it does seem weird that your pokemon couldn't do something that it did know just because you learned a new move.

But again another preference thing.

EDIT: I'll do the battle later I got stuff I got to do

No, no, Skarmory wasn't defeated, but Roar scared it and the bird became too useless to fight, so the grunt returned him to the ball.

Well, to be honest, I'm burned out on creativity (lawl) for a bit, so this gives me an excuse to be absent from the main battle for a bit.

It learns both Psychic and earthquake. Enough to take care of most enemies that learns moves which is in fact its' weaknesses. Also calm mind and Nasty plot. Oh and don't forget trick room which makes it act first.

This is...

I'm kind of not seeing the point in continuing. I didn't realize that you guys were going to play ultrapowerful pokemon by the 2nd gym. I had this idea of Saiar stomping you guys, possibly all of you at once, but I'm not even sure she could win one vs one against any of you at this point the way your teams are powered and evolving. There is no F'ing way Frank should have won that battle with the riff raff he has.

Basically I don't want to just set myself up to lose repeatedly for your amusements. Might just abscond into being an NPC.

Against Tyranitar?
It was a 2 on one.
There was a barrier up. (only takes 50% damage)
Tail whip was maxed out (decreases defense by 75%)
Fighting deals 4x damage against it.
Focus energy.
Low kick deals a lot of damage (Tyranitar weights about 445 lbs and that gives low kick 120 power) compared to Karate Chop's 50.
And Anger point maximizes Primeape's attack stat.

I figured it what the only way to defeat a beast at lvl 55. To turn all possible things against it.


But I apologize. I didn't realize it appeared like I was overpowering. He pretty much lived on the edge with Chansey healing him up each time.
I apologize and will change my post shortly.

Post by: SaiKar on October 26, 2010, 12:51:35 PM
Even with all that, it's an ape you caught like two days ago vs a known strong pokemon that you had apparently trained with for a large part of your career. And it's not just you, though you're doing it too, but I never really got the sense that any of you have remotely even close to been in a dangerous spot. And I'm slightly upset with how absolutely pathetic my team has done. These aren't just rocket goons - they're my characters, but Dren had Alec attack a gravler with a grimer when he had a gloom just chillin'. Even without knowing type advantages (and I'd assume the grunts know the basics) he should have been fighting 2 vs 1 just out of spite. Lucas was the only one that did his fight justice, and that's mostly because Holly has a notably lousy team, but even she managed to KO something with an exploding koffing!

But yeah. I feel like you guys are playing the game where you just sorts breeze through every encounter. And I'm not very willing to just be another easy fight. I and my characters have lost every fight, except the Joey one but that was more of a gag than anything, and we're probably going to lose again to Articuno. So eh. My heart is starting to fall out of this.

Post by: ellie-is on October 26, 2010, 01:28:21 PM
Aw man, don't be like that. You said that the goons would be easy. Just say that we shouldn't use your characters like that and that they should be harder, people should be able to fix stuff.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 26, 2010, 01:36:39 PM
I changed my post so the whole Maya incident never took place which made things turn out as they really should. It also felt better reading it afterwards.

I admit that i let my pride get in the way of the earlier post. And I apologize for that.

Also, Sai you should write some battles. 'Cuz when we pick our battles we kinda do it out of the hopes of winning. That's why I picked Dan. He had nothing that would be super effective against me. And Neither Houndour or Abro would do well against Kabuto in the beginning so he stuck with Fearow(which never really learns any good moves)
If you pick your opponent and play the battle, you'll be more likely to do the trainers justice. We've never seen them in action.

Match 1 (implied by intro): Lost, stole Pokeball out of spite.
"Match" 2 (vs. Zubat): Caught.
Match 3 (vs. Graveler): Fled into abandoned Pokecenter.
Match 4 (vs. Houndoom): Confused, then fled.
Match 5 (vs. Viridian Forest): Caterpies and Weedles, no contest.
Match 6 (vs. Magby): Victory?
Match 7 (vs. Magby again): Clefairy gets owned, Zubat one-shots it again.
Match 8 (vs. Josh): Pity victory.
Match 9 (vs. Viridian Forest): Owned by BEEEEDRILLS. (Side note: Zubat KOed itself)
Match10(vs. Houndoom): Clefairy becomes bait while Onix owns it.
Match11(vs. Lucas): Barboach loses.
Match12(vs. Arcanine, Mightyena, and Graveler): Zubat is owned. Clefable does nothing. Barboach squirts at last second.

I demand an exception to this. I didn't spend 14 pages making sure Clefairy was labeled useless just for this.

Hah.

I didn't lose any fights so far but I hope I made them interesting. I've been trying to lose but its just hard. :P
Wanted to fight Prpl some time but he didn't want to. Maybe later.


And I also felt that the RP had just started. Just like the games, it would make sense for us to win battles against noobdy trainers and nice gym leaders. Thought it would get harder later on (like when we had to face you). You as in Saiar, not the goons.

I feel pretty bad about this myself, giving up now would be a shame tho.

I can edit my post a bit too. In my defense, I try to play conservatively but it's a lot harder to write your own defeat then I thought it would be.
Hey, this is my first serious rp, give me another chance! Pweeeeease! *puppy face*

It is hard to accept defeat. It really is.

But this was an eye-opener for me. I've realized that you can't get away with everything. Sometimes you gotta lower your guard and take the punch like a man. 'Cuz black eyes are cool.

Post by: ellie-is on October 26, 2010, 03:46:13 PM
I don't like losing against gym leaders (and thats most of my fights) because I'd need a rematch to get a badge, and rematches against NPCs are boring.

I will start losing against other people though.

As long as nobody tries to beat Lairon with a Raticate or Pidgey or something.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: drenrin2120 on October 26, 2010, 04:22:39 PM
I just think we need to think out our posts more thoroughly and honestly. I knew the kid had a gloom, but I didn't want to lose, so I had him run.

=\

That's pretty much what it comes down to. I convinced myself the kid was just scared. But that's just dumb, he's a rocket after all, and he'd only lost one of his pokemon.
Also, Sai, pokemon evolve at low levels. It doesn't mean they're strong. Especially my team. Both Noctowl and Graveler evolve at low levels... Thouuugh, I get maybe my hoot-hoot shouldn't have evolved so soon. STILL, my team wouldn't stand a chance against Espeon, Steelix, or that weird Koffing you got. Never mind what else you have.

AND in regards to my fight. This sounds silly, but I honestly wasn't sure what to do here. I wasn't sure if it'd be practical for trainers to switch out pokemon in fights. I mean, it works in the games, but how would this work in reality? People would be switching out pokemon left and right trying to gain the type advantage. I could've done two on one. I'm not sure why I didn't.

What was Alec's third pokemon? I forgot. =X

Alec's third pokemon is a growlthe. Which wouldn't have helped him against the graveler. Lol @ fire type being basically the worst type in the game.

I've decided to man up, quit my bitching, take out my thunderous wrath at the next one of you kids that gets in my way, and then continue onward.

Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: SaiKar on October 26, 2010, 05:35:13 PM
Okay, I think my post is correct with the context of what's going on. Alec is still fighting Dren and Paige didn't fight any of the named characters. I don't want to move around your characters but I don't know where anyone is at actually in the town. Saiar is now actively looking for Frank. If any of you want to be there when she meets up with him, try to make that happen in the next post or two. If you want to write the confrontation Prpl, that's okay. Saiar speaks mostly in somewhat pointed, complicated sentences. She doesn't use contractions very often (though occasionally I slip up when writing her dialog and forget to check for them) and kind of has this air of confidence without being cocky. Well, if you don't want to write it, I'll write it myself.

Also, quote of the day: "Chris stepped away from the door and firmly grabbed his raging balls." (with thanks to Lucas)

edit: defeated and such:
* Holly - team KO'd
* Alec - in combat with Dren
* Dan - team KO'd
* Paige - minor scratches
* Kato - fully healed by leeching items from Sai

Chris is over by the entrance to Cerulean gym, just got beat by Alec.


Also, what happened to Mid?
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 26, 2010, 06:03:56 PM
Corey found Frank, and Frank headed to the gym.
Chris is beaten at the gym by Alec.
Edwin is in the gym watching Bruce and lyle.
Lucas was off fighting Holly.
Joe is up on the bridge fighting Nigel with the tentacruel.
Paige, Holly and Dan should be with Saiar.
Darren and his team beside bob is securing the town with fighting. Although Darren is pretty satisfied with the battle with Frank.

I'm gonna make me and corey challenge Alec and have Kato run into us I suppose.
Either corey or Sai can take care of the battle. It's a double battle after all.

And Sai, I'd prefer if you'll do the meeting of Frank and Saiar. You're a much better writer than me and my character is kinda easy to mimic.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 26, 2010, 07:00:00 PM
Sounds good to me.
We'll let Ed post his Bruce post since he had a lot more on that. Or Frank could leave the gym after the battle against Alec and Kato with Corey. So that those events does not have to synchronized. Also gives Ed more time.

And yeah, Darren is an ***hole. Frank is prick but Darren is an ***hole.
I could go with the whole Team America-explanation here but I'll leave it.

And I'll have to leave it like this for tonight. Happy writings.

Indeed. Maybe she can go, kick Elite 4 ***, and then fight our party. Because it will be one kickass party by the time we get to the end of this.


Also, when I said birds went West, I meant that they went all the way to the Whirl Islands on Johto. That will give us some time to focus on fighting rockets and winning gym badges, instead of just chasing birds.

I want to yoink that so bad...

I guess we should just back out slowly and avoid team rocket alltogether for the moment huh.
Time for a new synopsis though. Damn this part was fast.

I blame Lucas harassing me for like a week. And yeah. I was originally planning on having the pokeball fall to the ground, but I knew one of you bastards would make a lunge for it.

Something like...too much posting and me not being able to concentrate or keep up. >>... Sorry, =/

Finally part of the group.

Any ideas on our next little escapade?

Post by: SaiKar on October 31, 2010, 06:53:52 AM
Whoever hasn't gotten a badge prolly wants it. And Lucas keeps ranting about a Vermillion post. I don't have any plans though. I played puppetmaster for this city - someone else can take a turn for the next couple.

Yeah, gonna post it today. Just gonna give you guys a little while to catch up.

Post by: ellie-is on October 31, 2010, 02:17:49 PM
Okay, posted. Saffron should now have 50 more grunts, and another admin. Seems like we will be heading there, or at least Frank. This should be pretty darn difficult. And Team Rocket will now be more careful, to prevent what happened on Vermillion to happen on other cities that they control. So people in Saffron right now are pretty screwed. Unless we go there and save them!

Chances to liberate the city with most rocket influence is rather low.
Frank just didn't feel like going through the dark cave like some 10 year old without Tea.

Post by: ellie-is on October 31, 2010, 03:10:32 PM
Or you could find the city blocked and go to Vermillion via underground passage. And then Sai could be the admin sent to take the port back. That could work. :P

DAMN LUCAS. That was an epic post.

Sorry for not posting at all the past week. I just haven't had the time or the heart to do it. But I can get back into it after Lucas's post.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on November 03, 2010, 05:09:24 PM
It's not dying. I'm just letting people catch up. Kinda noticed that some people got left behind and didn't have the chance to catch up so I figured I'd give it some time for the recent events to sink in.

But if you don't want any more waiting I'm making Frank bust out of Saffron and start the next chain of events.

Thanks man. Sorry for the time I took to reply.

Gonna try to be more active now. Since I will probably not be at all during the weekend.

Post by: drenrin2120 on November 03, 2010, 06:28:34 PM
It's fine, we don't have to move a millions posts a second. Maybe a more leisurely stroll is what this RP needs.

However, I'll adjust accordingly.

So, Frank did what he was supposed to do in Saffron.
Now I gotta figure out how to get out of there and what to do with those two new additions to his team that he don't want.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: X_marks_the_ed on November 03, 2010, 08:47:17 PM
Onward to Lavender, to see if we can't get the ghosts to leave.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on November 04, 2010, 09:07:15 AM
Should I assume that Joe is still there when Frank returns to the gate?
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on November 05, 2010, 06:17:33 PM
So it died again?

Post by: X_marks_the_ed on November 05, 2010, 06:58:34 PM
Saying that it's dying just because it went two days without a reply won't fix anything.

Actually posting in it will.

The one by Cerulean Cave.

Post by: Prpl_Mage on November 06, 2010, 12:13:11 PM
The one by Cerulean Cave.

Dark cave?
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: X_marks_the_ed on November 06, 2010, 12:27:18 PM
Dark cave?

Rock Tunnel, apparently.

wait... Three different caves...
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: X_marks_the_ed on November 06, 2010, 03:17:41 PM
I think I got it now.

Mt. Moon = DURR
Cerulean Cave = The one with Mewtwo in it.
Rock Tunnel = The one to lavender.

I don't think I mentioned it as "Cerulean Cave" in the RP, so no editing needed.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: ellie-is on November 06, 2010, 03:35:18 PM
And Dark Cave: The one in Johto.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on November 06, 2010, 09:38:57 PM
Oh right, Dark cave is where you find Dunsparces.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on November 07, 2010, 01:40:13 AM
I feel like Joseph would know a Dunsparce since he's from Johto originally, but I'll play along since there is a chance he never went to that part of Johto.

I'll get to posting eventually, but I've had some medical troubles [Ear Infection since the beginning of last month, and I had an allerigc reaction to the medication, and so forth] and I've been trying to catch up on my work.
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: Prpl_Mage on November 07, 2010, 05:36:26 AM
Frank never told Joe what it was, he just gave it to him and said it was secret.
Feel free to toss it on someone else.

Also, don't it kinda suck to be a marching band guy and get ear infections?
Title: Re: Pokémon RP, sign up and lets catch 'em all!
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on November 07, 2010, 06:03:27 PM
It does.  -.-"

I actually got it from being marching band.  There were a few practices that were really windy and rainy, and my ear was inflamed...

Anyway, I was saying for when he does see it.  But I'll just have him not know what it is.

Post by: drenrin2120 on November 08, 2010, 10:39:18 AM
Well, the group has split up, so you can go to cerulean then saffron or then to the rock tunnel with an epic long post. Or you can kinda take it easy and go your own way and eventually meet up with us. Jussayin

Just pointing out that if someone wants a certain something to make an appearance, the broken Pokeball just might make it possible. Feel free to make it happen at some point in the future.

But first, Rock Tunnel.

Let me know when you guys want to continue this though. I kinda miss it.
Or should we leave it like this for a while and call it end of Season 1 with the new year coming up and try something different?

I don't know. It sure is fun, but it gets slow at times. Though my vacations started now and I'd be able to post a lot more.

Maybe start over, new characters (but lets start with more than a level 5 caterpie this time, so we can be sure that its not gonna get too slow), new place, maybe Johto, etc?

It's mostly because of the latter.
