We all know Pokemon red and blue. Right? As well we also have the updated versions of fire red and leaf green. Put the anime aside... You're going to live the game! There are going to be a lot of rules, you will be restricted to Kanto region Pokemon for instance. But this is part of the experience! All you need for your characters is simple, I'll give you something to copy and paste further down. Primarily, this will be who you will use. Added touches... No other trainers other than the main characters, such as Bill, the elite four, gym leaders etc. will be there without your permission! Also, you will legitimately be able to battle against other trainers! You can make such choices that were never possible in the game. Become a member of: Team Rocket (Nugget Bridge will give you the opportunity) Gym leader (Have to defeat them first) Elite four (Must defeat current member) Champion (Same as above) The pokeball system will work like this. You must fight the wild Pokemon (Through rp means) to red or yellow health, just in the game. If health is green, no matter the ball or level, it will fail. Here is the catch rate. Pokeball: Lv 1 - 20 Great ball: Lv 21 - 35 Ultraball: Lv 36 -55 Masterball: Legendaries Yes, as you could imply from that, legendaries are obtainable. There are six legendaries that may be obtained through the storyline through set events (in which case a npc will be directed to give you a masterball), Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Lugia, Mewtwo and Mew. The legendary birds are random, though the last three require the storyline to be complete. (Beat the champion) This might be harder than you'd expect, even with the levelling system. Each trainer battle against another roleplayer gains you two levels for the Pokemon beaten each, with the Pokemon used, after battle only. This is to stop interruptions of damage calculations. One level however for npcs. You may find TMs any time you please as well, Pokemon will learn the same moves as they usually would. For Pokemon that evolve through trade, they will instead evolve again once levelled up a further fifteen levels. Level limit, is as usual, 100. Worried this won't work? Fear not! There's a reason I'll only purely be moderator and controlling the npcs + storyline dialogs. I have a damage calculator which takes in the stats and level of a Pokemon. I'll be telling you who deals what damage, you have to trust me. One hit K.O.s won't be allowed, for accuracy isn't taken into account. Every place you can find Pokemon in red, you'll find them in this rp. If need be later I'll update this with a region map and a list of where to find what Pokemon. ::ENTER THE POKEMON WORLD!:: Sorry to have kept you waiting. Welcome to the world inhabited by Pokemon! Before we can begin, I just need to know a couple things about you. What's your name? What do you look like? (Good description please) Your very own Pokemon adventure is about to unfold. Step into this world and let your imagination guide you! Oh! And Professor Oak is waiting on the outskirts of Pallet town for you to teach you how to battle. Have fun!
