Pokemon Battle islands

Game NamePokemon Battle islands
Game SystemPokemon
ThemePokemon PTU
FlavourMechanic heavy Combat heavy
Plot SummarysGetting off the boat you take a few steps and take in the huge city, in the distance you see it The Arc Stadium. You take a few steps forward as a Exclamation mark appears over the old man on the benchs head.
You are frozen by some kind of plot pushing force as the Old man reaches you....

Old Man - Why Hello there. You have Arrived to the Legendary Battle Islands Captial City Aurorus. This City is known throughout the world as the City of Legends many famous trainers have braved this city and claimed The Grand Champion Ball. Have you ever visited this city before?

1. "No could you take hours out of my life to explain it?"
2. "Yes now leave me alone"

 


 


As you enter the Stadium you open up to a huge statue of the legendary trainer himself. As you approach the statue you hear a call.

Professor - "Welcome you must be the new Trainer i've been hearing about. Come over and tell me a little about yourself before we take a look at your pokemon".


What you can expect to be doingThis is going to be a semi arena battle semi adventure game. That being said there is nothing stopping you from doing every gym and requesting for a elite 4 but the main story belongs with the arena and its allure.
The game will run on a week system with a weekly competition tournament and a monthly Cup (a bigger tourney offering much more competition and great rewards)

Also going to do a static battle style(no map). If you have ever played the games same idea. Also there are not going to be trainer attacks since it doesn't work overly well with static battle

Character CreationWe will be using PTU 1.05 here is the download site if you don't have it
I have character sheets i can send you. They are the Fancy 1.05 ones that auto fill the info for you. (Really easy to use once you play around a little.)
Name
Appearance (picture required)
Race(optional and purely for flavour and won't impact the game whatsoever You can choose dnd races if you want.)
Background
3 Favourite Pokemon Types
Class - (also optional.)
Personality
How often you can post (hourly, bi-daily,Daily, Weekdays) (generally to keep the game going i like posting to be at least 3-4 times a week.)
Goals/Dreams

(You don't have to worry about choosing your stats and such until after you've been accepted same with pokemon But to give you an idea you can fully choose one pokemon with the point system i use)


FAQAny questions answered will be posted up here
- What Levels do we start : Starting Lvls will be lvl 4 Trainers and Lvl 5 pokemon
- What pokemon are we allowed and what gens are used : We are using all Pokemon from all Gens Before Alola (no Alola pokemon yet Maybe soon) I'll do my best to have a decent balance of all types of pokemon
- Is this a story driven adventure : No not really there are encounters that can lead to further storylike events but they are rare.
Can i have a Legendary pokemon - No sorry but they are just too extreme an advantage. You might however meet them here and there in the future when you are vs champions and Legendary trainers.
- Can i do the pokemon league challenge - Yep if you want to that's all good there are 8 gyms and many unsanctioned gyms in the wilderness although you are going to have to find them since all the citys are not mapped.

- Is this pure combat game - yes and no the focus is the Arena and getting your pokemon stronger to Become the champion and remain the champion however you are going to be doing alot of exploring in the Wilds of The battle islands to find pokemon and new areas/new area tiers and there may be a Team causing havoc here and there for those lucky enough to find those missions.

- Do i have to participate in the arena : Nope you can pretty much do as you like i don't like to restrict players too much but i highly suggest to do it as there is alot of experience to be gained.

- Can i group with a friend and travel - Definitely and i'll make changes to the areas accordingly so that it is good to travel with others and even promote it through NPC trainers looking for an adventure partner.

-Are there double battles? - Yes There are triple battles even though rare they are there. They become more common when you are grouped


Start date will be the 1st since we have a decent amount of interest already.

Once the game starts i don't mind adding players however you will need to do a catchup session where we catch you up to the average of players.
Also send me a PM if you make an application on here after the first as i might not check it as often.

ApplicationName: Hector Woods
Appearance:
 

Race: Human
Background: Rough
3 Favourite Pokemon Types: Fire, Dark, Fighting
Class: -
Personality: When they call you Rowdy, you counter them by saying you’re merely Passionate about pokemon and adventures; Especially those journeys that will bring you renown.
Despite being a bit of a loud troublemaker, your heart seems to be in the right place, as most of your problems arise from your sense of justice and moral compass.
Thankfully, you are able to stand your own, and it never hurts to have your pokemon next to you.

How often can you post: Daily
Goals/Dreams: “Why does one become a pokemon trainer? Well, to become the best ever was, naturally. And this is how my journey begins. I’ll prove everyone that I can also be a reliable pokemon trainer, and I will be able to become strong enough to defeat anyone who stands in my way. You just watch!”

I'll throw my hat in the ring! I am quite intrigued by the seemingly openness of this game! Encouraged to go to the arenas, but not mandatory. Secret missions! Oooh!

Application
right-aligned image
Name: Flotsam aka "Sam"
Appearance: Somewhat small and very slender, Flotsam is a girl that looks quite healthy, happy and petite. Her hair is ginger and her skin is fair, though it never seems to tan or burn despite her being outside all the time. She is always wearing just her bikini wherever she goes. She doesn't wear shoes, accessories, or other articles, and it seems she doesn't actually own anything.
Race: Human! Most certainly not some Fae or Mermaid in disguise...
Background: Beach Bum - Flotsam was a runaway. Or maybe more accurately, a wander-away? Her father was gone and her mother was just horrible. Pokemon she befriended at the ocean's edge whisked her away to a new carefree life in paradise. She is very poorly educated, if at all, and she has spent all her life outdoors on the fringes of society. Not a day had gone by when she wasn't submerged under water at some point, playing with her friends.
3 Favorite Pokemon Types: Water, Water and... um.. Water?
Class: Looks like Type Ace (water) or something like a Swimmer Trainer?
Personality: Light and bubbly, Flotsam is eager to make friends with people, pokemon, and animals everywhere she goes. It's no secret, however, that the pokemon she truly bonds with have an affinity to water like her. She is quite naive and unassuming. She lives in the moment and doesn't think things through. Although she is outgoing, that is offset by her lack of social awareness and disregarding of social norms.
How often can you post: Multiple times per day.
Goals/Dreams: Flotsam lives to catch the next big wave and to go on her next fun adventure: be that going on a hike in the mountains, diving for sunken treasure, battling it out in an arena, or taking a nice cozy nap under the sun.

Example photo on rightIts not nessarary to do it but so you know for other games or if you just like doing it you can have your Picture be in the right of your words like this
right-aligned image

By just adding r or l(L) after IMG on both side of the picture.
Its a trick i learned recently and have been sharing it.
I use imgur to do my photo editing for it because sometimes you get crazy large photos.

I've been doing that regularly in some of my other games when I have a good picture!

I could probably even do this with my current picture for Flotsam.. would look fine on my PC, though would probably push everything down when looking at it on a phone. Still, maybe it won't be horrible either.

You can change the size using imgur. It works pretty well imo If you add stat blocks and everything in the picture fits almost perfectly with the message board ones(the same size as i posted)

Applications - Evan Vector
right-aligned image

Name: Evan Vector
Appearance: Evan is fairly tall and lightly built, while he is not unfit or out of shape he has always been slightly on the slim side with a somewhat frail appearance. Evan has pale skin, dark slightly wavy hair and a young looking face. Evan tends to dress smartly most often wearing a dark pair of shoes and trousers, a light shirt and is also most commonly seen wearing a long white lab coat and a pair of glasses.

Personsality: Evan is very calm and very polite. It is incredibly unusual to hear a bad word out of the young man or to get him riled up. While Evan has a very scientific mindset rather than being cold he is actually very caring. While pokemon might be the focus of his studies he does not treat them with clinical detachment and instead treats them as one would a much loved pet. With that said Evan does have an incredibly strong sense of scientific curiosity and the desire to learn new things can often become an overwhelming influence.

Goals/Dreams: Evan's ultimate goal is to discover the secret of pokemon evolution. In order to do this however Evan wishes to observe up close the evolution of an eevee down every possible evolutionary path. Evan also has a number of sub goals in order to achieve his ultimate goal;

- Obtain a degree in Pokemon genetics.
- Become a Pokemon professor specialising in the field of Pokemon evolution.
- Study Pokemon breeding and evolution in the field.
- Publish a paper on the evolution of Pokemon.

Background: Geeky Scientist: As a young child Evan was never in to Pokemon battling like most of his peers were. That was not to say that he was not interested in Pokemon, oh the truth was far from that in fact. He found Pokemon fascinating but the young Evan much preferred to study them and observe them in the wild rather than battle with them. Evan found the abilities of each Pokemon incredibly intriguing and as a child he would carry round a large journal in which he would scribble down everything he learnt or discovered and this large book would rarely leave his side. What Evan found most amazing however was how Pokemon evolved, how they could change from one thing to something completely different. To this end Evan began to observe bug types due to the fact that they seemed to evolve much more quickly than any other Pokemon in existence. At first Evan merely observed them in the wild but soon he began to team up with trainers and though he was not a trainer himself he began to inadvertently learn a lot about being one while studying their Pokemon and the interactions that they had with wild ones.

While a lot of Evan’s classmates began careers at what Evan considered very early ages of around ten to twelve years old Evan instead decided to stay on at school and complete his education. There was a lot to learn about Pokemon and about other subjects and school was the best place to learn the majority of it. During his time at school Evan gained a new focus for his fascination. The evolution of Pokemon fascinated him and where evolution was concerned there was no Pokemon with more possibilities than an Eevee. There were so many different stimuli that could nudge an Eevee down the path to evolution that it made the fluffy little creature beyond incredible. Evan was confident that locked inside the genetic material of the Eevee was not only all the answers to every question about evolution ever imagined but the origins of Pokemon themselves. While Evan’s studies at school mostly focused around the sciences he also focussed heavily on the care of Pokemon themselves. While most trainers began their Pokemon careers knowing only how to command or battle their Pokemon Evan’s knowledge was much more varied, not only had Evan learned how to properly care for a Pokemon but he had also learnt specialised skills such as how to groom them, how to make medicines for them and how to treat their injuries. Evan had even learned how to safely breed two Pokemon together and hatch the egg produced.

Evan's interest in Pokemon, their abilities and their evolution continued long past his early childhood and when he graduated high school he had already become set on the idea of becoming a Pokemon professor specialising in the field of Pokemon evolution and genetics. Due to his rather impressive grades at school Evan gained acceptance to study Pokemon genetics at a number universities including the Velorian University. Evan however felt that he had a lack of practical experience with Pokemon and decided to defer for a year so that he could take a year out and interact with Pokemon in the field.

OOC Goals:
- Obtain one of each eeveelution.
- Make a discovery about Pokemon evolution
- gaining some gym badges could also be fun

Ideal Starter: Eevee ( but if I’m not that lucky anything that is Eevee like in form ie a growlithe or vulpix)

You will in the point thread when we get in game. Altaire has already played this before so he knows the system. You are able to choose 1 for sure if you want or you can random or random based on type. then you will be able to upgrade your starter with some extra stats chosen nature..etc.

So I guess just like in the game, we'll only start off with one pokemon, right?

Why does this old man in the intro think we are a pokemon trainer everyone has been talking about if we don't have any so far? Can't be a pokemon trainer without a pokemon! Well, unless the man is just senile. Maybe it could be we've had this pokemon a while, and we're only seeing a professor to get a pokedex or something.

I wonder if we can also do a thing like in the shows where we have some pokemon that don't like being in a pokeball and just follow us around like a pet/friend. Yes, that's Ash's pikachu. And.. that meowth from team rocket? I'm sure there's others.

@DrowNinjaPrincess

I assume for the same reason that one dude in every gym in the old games called everyone "champ in the making" even though I'm walking into the first gym with a pidgey and a charmander about to get bodied by Brock for the third time
