I'm a huge fan of all the stuff i'm seeing so far. I think everyone should see this. For the start of the game, use offical evolution levels. Magikarp and Wooper can both be evolved if you want them. This is my compromize between pokemon like Wooper who offically evolve at level 20. And pokemon who like Houndour who evolve at level 22 offically but in the tabletop game evolve at level 20+. I'm also going to stop sending individual pokedex clarifications to everyone. I've been sending out things like "FYI, Houndoom's flames cause the person burned never to stop feeling like they are on fire." Now I'm just going to put them all in here. Oh and the cutoff date will be Jan 23rd at midnight.
Sorry this isn't spellchecked. I have to run out right now. Also no time to put in the images.

OsseHey! Just wanted to say I think Mewtwo is not public knowledge. Oh and to evolve Slowbro you will need a shellder!~


FroggyKnightI don't think the gaint fish monster would be on my rare list. For gyarados to be on my rare list Magikarp would have to be on my rare list. And I'm not doing that. I will say if you do choose a different rare, make it one that evolves. Otherwise you could start with a fairly powerhouse team. Oh and Gyarados' entrys will be a little overhyped. They talk about Gyarados going on week long rages. This is more true of wild ones. Your gyarados will DEFINATELY have a short temper though. Also Wooper's dex entries talk about how it slathers it's self in a toxic slime to help stay hydrated out of the water. With out any poison type moves, that slime will only able to cause nausia in humans. Yes I would have described it as semi-gross. Qagsire does not need the slime, but he can produce it. Qagsire's "only needs to eat very little" only applies when he's just been spending weeks at a time just laying on a lakebed doing nothing.

Okay the only issue/question I have with "official" rules (guessing you mean the gameboy games?) is that I have not played them in years and do not remember what levels they evolve at nor am I recent on X/Y that way.

Same with the Pokedex entries. I can look them up on Bulbapedia (it's what I use for my game), but I don't remember most of them off the top of my head anymore. I did vaguely remember the slime thing so I put it in, but was unsure if both had it. Thanks for looking it up and I will be researching Pokedex entries now.

So, I was going to go with a Careful natured Gyarados from the player's handbook, but I can do a short-tempered one. Not sure how angry and careful go together, but I can do a different nature. It makes sense for natures to be random once we start, but are we allowed to.choose our starting Pokemon's Natures?

Lastly, I can swap out GyRados for something else. Spheal and Quagsire are fairly badass Pokemon and I can investigate other stuff. I cannot remember a rarish water type with more than one stage aside from a starter, but I can try a non-water type that I can turn into water when I get Water ace eventually.

Yeah by offical rules I mean the gameboy games. Consider the anime non-canon btw. I use bulbapedia too. I do NOT in any way remeber all pokedex entries. And quagsire having the poison goop is just a judgment call for me since his entries do not mention it.

In the tabletop you always pick your natures, even if you capture a pokemon, you still pick the nature for it. I play the pokemon as NPCs, so how it plays out will be up for me and I hope that seems fun to me. I like to have the pokemon bounce off of the trainers. A careful gyarados to me sounds like someone who wants super hard to be calm and collected but has a temper issue.

Rare water types that are just one stage include Milotic (Water), Clamperl (Water), Jellicent (Water/Ghost), Kabutops (Water/Rock), Omastar (Water/Rock) and Dragalge (Poison/Dragon). Er... well only sort of on Dragalge. His preevolution is Poison/Water. That's interesting. Not sure how type ace works with a pokemon that USED to be water type.

Well, Type Aces have the ability to swap one (or one of two) types out. So if Lia has a Dragalge, she can either make him Water/Dragon, or Water Poison. She (I) wouldn't do it to his preevolution, which already has a Water type. It's basically to turn something not your type into your type.

An example given in one of the books (PTU I believe) is that of a Rapidash turned from Fire to Fire/Fighting. The change made that example grow large muscular arms on Rapidash's forefront. Or you could make a Ghostly Rapidash, that could be spectral and maybe walk through walls...

I'm still wired from work, so I'll keep looking through stuff for a bit, but it's midnight for me in about an hour.

Large... muscular arms at the forefront.................. Horrorfying. But awesome. I will keep THAT gem in my little box of future nightmare fuel.

I had a good joke about the anime too for my backstory. "I stood out a lot in the police academy, my name was Ace everyone else was named Jenny. I was a guy, my classmates were all girls. When they were being yelled at no one knew to which Jenny they were referring to. When I was yelled at they all knew it was about me."

Aww sorry That woulda been funny. But yeah sorry, Consider everything in the anime to be... wrong. Just wrong. Maybe some rare ideas will be kept. Gaint pokemon for one like the early serie's dragonite and tentacruel but beyond that not really.

Oh when we get in I'll roll the shiny checks for each of your guy's pokemon. For my games it's a 1 in 100 chance.

It interesting that the pokedex entries can actually mean something. Makes me glad I didn't pick Yamask as one of my pokemon. Though it would still fit my focus on the more creepy and/or oddball pokemon. Your mention of Honedge also has me rethinking my choice of rare pokemon, it was one I used through out x/y.

Also still pondering my third pokemon choice as well. Was thinking unown, but they are very bad at fighting anything. Klefki is a nice weird one, though its a fairy type and I was leaning towards the more typical ghost and dark types associated with psychics. Klink and bronzor are also considerations, but that begins to lean towards a steel type focus. I like litwick, but it would be a second ghost type.

The tabletop game actually has an entire class for using unown. But I'm going to say Unown is offlimits becuase I actually am not sure what my feelings are on it.

Actually on ghost types. Ghosts type pokemon will come in two distinct forms for the game. Ghost types hatched from eggs were never alive. They are closer to beings with ghost like attributes. But some ghost type pokemon can be the dead come back.

Oh and I love the dex entries. They add a ton of flavour to the little sprites we see. Hell my largest complaint about the anime is that they just ignore these little tidbits. So much so that besides type and moveset most pokemon can literally just be swapped out with any other one.

Edit : Feel free to try to talk me into removing the limit on Unown.

Phantump for example, is the soul of a child that died lost and alone in the woods...there was a blog entry on it, in the Tabletop United forums...

Still a bit creepy.

That's what the pokedex entry states as well. However my original thing stands. The original phantump were dead children, and new phantumps can be generated that way. However phantump are capable of breeding and any ones born from eggs were never dead.

Which game are you basing rarity off of? I only ask because they can change from game to game (i.e, there's only one eevee in gen 1 games, but it becomes a wild pokemon by gen 6.) Or is it going be more of a case by case basis?

Also, where does this fall on the timeline? Which games have happened?

I wouldn't worry too much about the timeline. I would say none. Zero of the games have happened.

Rariety is a bit of a judgement call. If Eevee were allowed I would say it's rare. I would say most pokemon are going to be pretty obvious on that front. Even Eevee. Like you said it IS a wild pokemon by gen 6... but only in a rich man's garden and a patch of grass hidden in the sewers.

Alright, zero of the games happening effects the backstory I'm working on a bit (I was operating on the presumption that ALL the games had happened), but nothing unmanageable. Right now the pokemon I'm thinking of having are Lucario, Absol, and Rufflet.

I would call Lucario and Absol to both be rare. Basicly assume no legendaries have awoken in recent years or villianous teams are running around. Consider criminals to be more competent.
