    "Gotta Catch 'Em All" The Pokémon RPG OOC Thread.

    Game Master: JinnSato
    Assistants: Mr. Marko, Super Ferret

    Hello and welcome to the Pokémon RPG!! Yes I said it Pokémon. But instead of of this being for kids we're going to spice things up and make it more adult orientated.

    Here are a few rules:


    - This RPG takes place directly after the events of Gold and Silver (two years after the fall of Giovanni and the rise of the new Champion Red.)

    - Our region is Kanto. No other regions may be explored, though if a character is to be play from other regions they may under GM approval.

    - You may play as any human character from the games, comics, or anime.

    - You may create your own character, but you must assign them a class from the list provided here.

    - All trainers are only allowed to begin with three Pokemon on their person, and a maximum of six total in their posession (Bill's PC). Only one of these six Pokemon may be fully evolved (does not include Pokemon like Pinsir, Tauros, Ditto).

    - You may use any Pokemon from Gen I and II. Gen III and IV Pokemon may be used with approval of a GM.

    - Legendaries may not be used by anyone. In order to interact with an NPC Legendary Pokemon, approval must be given by a GM.

    - Arguing will not be tolerated. Play nice!

    Now go out there and catch them all!!!!

    Are there any trainers that mostly use dark type? I'm thinking of picking up a villain that uses darks, has an mystic-evilish archetype...

    Here's my application!!!

    Name of Character(are they from the comics, show, or games??): Brock

    Character's Personality:
    Brock is a mature trainer who considers himself the protector of Pewter City. He gives out the Boulder Badge to any trainer who manages to defeat him in a Pokemon battle, although this is rarely the case.

    Font (be specific.): Trebuchet, Brown, Bold


    Class (Gym Leader, Camper, PokéManiac, etc):
    Gym Leader

    Where is your characters location at the moment?:
    Pewter City

    Starter Pokemon(chose three):

    1.
    Bulbasaur - Grass/Poison
    [​IMG]
    2.
    Geodude - Rock/Ground
    [​IMG]
    3.
    Onix - Rock/Ground
    [​IMG]

    If you have more in storage what are they:
    Sudowoodo
    [​IMG]
    Rhydon
    [​IMG]

    Why have you chosen this character?:
    He's the first Gym Leader that everybody ever went against! He's classic.

    Please provide a small sample post:

    Brock ran down the street after a man dressed in a black jumpsuit with a large red R on the front. "Get back here! That Pokemon isn't yours!" He grabbed a Pokeball from his belt and hurled it forward. "Onix, Use your Sand Tomb attack to stop him!"

    In a flash of light, a large stone snake appeared from the Pokeball and fired a large vortex of sand out of its mouth.

    "Ahhh! S***!" The man screamed as two Pokeballs flew from his hand and onto the ground below, while his body lifted off the ground and into the air.

    Brock walked up to them and picked them up gently. "I'll take those, thank you very much." He chuckled a bit as the man swirled in the air. "You know you need to press the button in the center of the Pokeball to call out the Pokemon." He turned to Onix. "Just keep him in a Constriction until the authorities get here."

    Onix nodded.

    ------------------------------------------------

    "Thank you again, Brock. I don't know what Pewter City would do without you."

    Brock smiled a bit. "Don't mention it, Officer." He knew it was really his Pokemon that had been the heroes that day. "Something is bothering me, however."

    "What is that?"

    "The man's uniform."


    "Rocket? They were defeated a long time ago, Brock. Giovanni is rotting in prison."

    "I know, but Rocket was more of an idea. A way of life. If even one member survived, they could start it up again. And it seems like that may be the case."

    Name of Character(are they from the comics, show, or games??): Tube

    Character's Personality:
    Tube is a newly started trainer from Celadon City, who recently has begun training himself. He has only two Pokemon, one of which is his prized Shiny Voltorb, which was passed down to him from his father right before he died. Tube's father was killed by Team Rocket three years ago while they still occupied the Game Corner. Tube is relatively young, but smart for his age. His other Pokemon is a Gastly which was caught in Lavender Town, not far from where Tube grew up.
    Font (be specific.): Book Antiqua, Purple, Bold


    Class (Gym Leader, Camper, PokéManiac, etc):
    Pokemon Trainer

    Where is your characters location at the moment?:
    Celadon City

    Starter Pokemon(chose three):

    1.
    Voltorb - Electric
    [​IMG]
    2. Gastly - Ghost/Poison
    [​IMG]
    If you have more in storage what are they: None

    Why have you chosen this character?:
    My trainer has been named Tube ever since Pokemon Blue. :)
    Please provide a small sample post:

    Tube walked outside the Celadon City Gym. Je had been training most of the day, and it was now time to head home. It was strange to be a trainer. He had been working with his Pokemon for about a month now, and he was getting very good. He was considering seeking out the Move Tutor to teach it Thunderbolt, but that would need to wait until he could pay the Tutor.

    "The life of a trainer isn't easy. Are you sure you're up for it?"
    Tube turned around to see Erika, the resident Gym Leader.

    "Yeah, I think so."

    Erika placed her hand on Tube's shoulder. "Your Voltorb did very well today. I think that you have the potential to one day become a great Pokemon Trainer. Just keep up the practice."

    Tube nodded. "Thanks, Erika."

    Tube headed towards home. Soon he would be making his way to Vermillion City. He had heard that there was a Gym Leader who was an expert in Electric-type Pokemon. Hopefully he would be able to teach him a few things about how to train his Voltorb.

    Tube knew his journey would be hard, but he was ready. The world of competitive Pokemon training was exciting. Little did he know, Tube was about to embark on the biggest challenge of his life.

    Ack! Me? Playing a villain with a team? I think not sir. My baddies are always loners :]

    And I thought that the class idea was to give your character something to base itself around? Yea, Pokémon Trainer is on the list, but the article seems to say that "Trainer" is just the broad term for any of the other classes, and not necessarily a class in itself.

    Hey Mr. Marko, why the heck does Brock have a Rhydon and yet his Geodude still hasn't evolved?

    Holy crap Climperoonie, you got a REALLY tough lineup! I thought the rule was that you could only have one fully evolved Pokemon to start ... or am I wrong? I also thought that you had to meet one of the requirements for Trainer classes.

    Hey, I was having a tough time deciding what I wanted my initial Pokemon to be! Anyways, here it is!


    Name of Character(are they from the comics, show, or games??): Giovanni
    (from Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow, the Pokemon anime, and the Pokemon manga)

    Character's Personality:
    Giovanni is the ruthless leader of Team Rocket. He’s a megalomaniac who seeks out global domination, using Pokemon as tools to help accomplish this goal. He is quiet and malicious, ruling his crime syndicate with an iron fist. His men fear him, for they know the consequences of failure are steep, and yet highly respect him for his canny and persistence.

    Font (be specific.):
    Bold Black System

    Occupation (trainer, Gym leader, etc):
    The leader of Team Rocket and Viridian City’s former Gym Leader.

    Where is your characters location at the moment?:
    Ochre Island Prison
    ((Btw, I made up Ochre Island, it’s not in the games/anime/manga. Hope that’s alright with everyone.))

    Starter Pokemon(chose three):
    The two Pokemon below: he’ll receive in the first official post by some of his subordinates.

    1.
    Onix
    [​IMG]


    2.
    Kangaskhan
    [​IMG]


    If you have more in storage what are they: His 5 Viridian Gym Pokemon have been apprehended by the local authorities, and aren’t accessible to him at the moment.

    1. Dugtrio
    [​IMG]

    2. Persian
    [​IMG]


    3. Nidoqueen
    [​IMG]


    4. Nidoking
    [​IMG]

    5. Rhydon
    [​IMG]

    Why have you chosen this character?: He’s freaking Giovanni, the real main antagonist of the Generation I Pokemon series! And yet, he just seems to disappear after Red/Blue/Yellow … Hah! Giovanni is as mad as hell as he sits behind bars: His organization has been thwarted by a single trainer, Red, who goes on to become Pokemon Master. He wants some revenge, BIG time!

    I want to roleplay this character in a way that would give Al Puccino a run for his money.

    Please provide a sample post.


    In the silent dark he sat on his hard, cold cot. Ten years he sat behind bars, in Kanto’s highest security prison, perched atop the rocky cliffs of Ochre Island. He had no reason to be here, his plan was perfect! All it took was one nosy little brat.

    First it was beneath his Secret Hideout. Well, it used to be at least. He had built himself the Game Corner in Celadon City, disguising the Rocket HQ as a Casino. He was getting the money he needed, and all was well. Of course, it just had to be some pre-adolescent that’d sniff him out. Not only that, but the little ****er had the guts to confront and beat him. He underestimated the kid, using only three of his in-training Pokemon at the time.

    Next was at Silph Co., Giovanni’s most famed accomplishment of all time. With the fall of Celadon’s Game Corner, he mustered every Rocket he could to invaded Saffron City, Kanto’s largest city. It was here that he got his chance to hold it: Silph’s latest and greatest creation, the Master Ball! And yet, that same punk ... incompetent Giovanni’s grunts were, he could’ve anticipated their failure a mile away. That is, had he known it was the boy. Giovanni was ill prepared once again.

    Those two mistakes must have been what landed him in the joint! But no, he had one strike left before he was out of the game. Team Rocket’s Leader waited for the punk to enter his Pokemon Gym, his five greatest ready. That bastard! Swept Giovanni right off his feet! He had never been so humiliated in his life ...

    It only took an hour later, and the cops came barging in the Viridian Gym, Arcanines in position. There were no more cards he could play, he gave out his best hand; he knew when he was beat.

    And here he was … bangs, poppers, and sirens ringing in his ears. Oh the irony! Perhaps he wasn’t quite out of the game yet.

    "This is it ... I’ll be coming for you, boy ..."

    APPROVED!! The only reason I'm approving this is because his Pokemon are not in storage and have been confiscated. Just make sure he doesn't get his other Pokemon in two posts down the road. Make it a gradual process.

    A few light problems. First, by Trainer do you mean a person who has the intent of going pro? In this RPG, that's what a trainer is, and so you should clarify. I know what you most likely are trying to say, but we just want to make sure.

    Also, I think there is a slight confusion on what kind of Pokemon you are allowed to start with. Under the rules that I PM'd Jinn (and I await a response) you are allowed to start with three on your person and three in storage, regardless of how far down the road your character is in his Journey to the Elite Four. Also, only one of those six are allowed to be fully evolved (although they may evolve later on). This is in attempt to keep the ranks even. You don't have a sample post yet, so I can't approve it anyway. But I would suggestion shaving down the storage guys. Just pick a few that you like. Any questions, PM me.

    Meh...just wanted to keep with the original Brock roster. Haha. You can bet it'll evolve eventually though. I'm kind of thinking that Onix is the Brute Force type guy, and Geodude is the Strategic Thinking type. And Bulbasaur is there for balance. :woot:

    Plus, if I'm not mistaken, Geodude learns moves earlier if he doesn't evolve, and I think he's faster than a Graveler.

    Not every RPG does. But I don't see why we couldn't. This is likely destined to be one of the smaller RPGs, so a two character rule would enable more interaction.

    Either way, Brock is approved, and if Jinn weighs in in favor of two characters, then so is Tube.

    I'll be getting my Koga app up tonight. I've just gotta rework my sample a bit.

    Name of Character (are they from the comics, show, or games?): Elliot

    Character's Personality: Elliot is an ambitious 15 year old boy who grew up with an older brother, Allen, that was fascinated by Pokémon. When Allen became a Pokémon Trainer he caught many Pokémon, some for himself, and some for his mother. With his mother’s approval, Elliot decided to drop out of school and become a Pokémon Trainer himself, and this is where we meet him.


    Font (be specific): Book Antiqua, Bold, Slate Grey

    Occupation (Trainer, Gym Leader, ect.): Trainer

    Where is your characters location at the moment?: The outskirts of Pallet Town

    Starter Pokemon (chose three): (NOTE: Elliot only has Heracross at the beginning of his story, he will get the others shortly)

    1. Charmander
    [​IMG]

    2. Heracross
    [​IMG]

    3. Blastoise
    [​IMG]

    If you have more in storage what are they: He has no Pok
    émon in storage

    Why have you chosen this character?: I always wanted a more "real" Pokémon Trainer, now here's my chance to create one.


    Please provide a sample post:

    "Let's get goin', knuckle head," were the first words Allen said to his little brother that morning. His brother, Elliot, was to begin his journey as a Pokémon Trainer today, and there was no chance that he was going to oversleep.

    Elliot jumped out of his bed, and ran straight for the bathroom. Mere minutes later, he was ready for the long day ahead of him. He ran down the stairs into the kitchen where his mom and Heracross were preparing a large breakfast. They had found the Heracross in the nearby forest, and after a short between it and Allen's Pokémon, it was captured. Ever since then, the large beetle-like creature had helped Elliot's mom with the house work.

    Elliot grabbed a cup of orange juice, drank it, then grabbed a few pieces of toast. "You be careful now," his mom said, "Listen to whatever Allen says, and do your best." Elliot swallowed the bite of toast in his mouth, and nodded his head.

    "Don't worry Mom," the teenage boy answered, "I'll be alright as long as I'm with Allen. Now I've got to get going-"

    "Wait!" she yelled as he left the room. Elliot backed into the room, and looked at his mom. She then tossed him a Poké Ball he recognised to be Heracross's. She smiled, and with the press of a button, Heracross retreated into the orb. Returning the smile, Elliot ran out the front door, where he saw his brother.

    Question: Can you sign up as the more...powerful Poke'mon themselves? I'm thinking of trying my hands on Mewtwo...

    Hmm... a Heracross... I love those. My kid bro uses one, he and my Snorlax are bitter rivals. Blob's always got Swagger to confuse 'Cross, who just destroys himself miserably.

    Allen is accepted.

    We've said that the legendaries are to be NPC. I think we should stay away from the Legendaries initially until we have a bit on continuity. You're welcome to pick up a character though, or make up your own.
