Pokémon: Distortion Games OOC

Recommended Posts

This is an OOC for Pokémon: Distortion Games.

 

We can use it for discussing plot lines, characters, etc.

 

' A N S W E R E D - Q U E S T I O N S '

 

Q: Could the legendaries possibly communicate with their champions via telepathy?

A: Yup. The legendaries can even act as voices of wisdom for champions.

 

Q: Out of curiosity, can we have pokemon teams with movesets included in our sheets? If so, how many pokemon should there be max and around what levels?

A: Yeah, totally. While our champions' actual Pokémon might be secondary to this particular plot, they still can play a vital role, so I would say game rules apply—six 'mons per team and levels can be dependent on your character's unique experience as a trainer. Rookies might have 20s and experts, 50s.

 

Q: If a legend's champion dies, would they be able to pick another one immediately?

A:

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: I haven't really cemented the logistics of it, but from what I can speculate, the legendaries use their "special powers" to search for a person with a similar aura. This is the person they make their champion, but in the case of death, can repeat the process.

 

Q: I have a quick inquiry if you don't mind me asking. What do we do with Black/White Kyurem? Is there some sort of special rule that we're going to use involving it, are we just going to not include them into this story, or something? I'm completely fine either way, I'm just curious. On a side note, I should get my sheet in tonight if everything goes as planned.

A: When I was creating the legendaries, I came this close to adding the power to shift between Black/White Kyurem on Kyurem's description. I got lazy though, so there went that idea. laugh.gif If you would like, you can incorporate it into your sheet as an extra ability. The same goes for other legendaries with different forms (e.g. Meloetta).

 

Q: Wait so in Pokemon is it in a future setting? Do they have like- I dunno, phones?

A: The Hoenn region in particular has quite a few technological advances. Devon Corp's PokéNav can call peeps, download maps, etc. It's what this region has in place of phones, but like Archios said, the setting for the RP is primarily apocalyptic, so in some places technology might work and other places, not so much. When some of the legendaries were shifted from their original positions, landmasses changed with them. Electricity poles and power plants might have been uprooted as a result.

 

Q: Do Pokemon talk? As in not the legendarily like the Pokemon team?

A:

Pokémon don't speak like humans do. So, I don't think Skypool will allow for teams to speak to their trainers.

 

...but Manaphy's champion (Within this RP) could possibly do it.

Thank you, Narvix and MrSpyro.

 

Q: Quick question if I may, does the transformation into becoming a champion hurt and is the appearance change instantaneous after the light is gone? I just want to be sure I'm not messing anything up when posting my intro.

A: I think it might be unique for every person. If your character merely changes hair color, then the most they might feel is a tickling sensation around their head. If they grow new appendages, however, that might be a whole different story altogether. laugh.gif

 

The light bathes your character from head to toe and each part of the metamorphosis is done in a singular fashion, so there's a bit of a process to it, but probably not a long one.

 

Honestly, I could just succinctly say that you can take whatever creative license you would like because each legendary/champion is different.

 

Q: Quick question before I post: Is the world already going down, in terms of the weather and such? Or is this before the effects become too noticeable?

A: It's pretty much as bad as it's going to get for the time being; the only deviations take place in freak storms and natural disasters that are the consequences of the legendary imbalances.

 

Q: To clarify, does this mean that weather is so far the only abnormality? Or are infrastructures, electricity, and such, already fallen apart?

A: Yeah, they have, and for the most part, said incidents are related.

 

Tsunamis have wrecked coastal towns. Earthquakes have collapsed infrastructures. A lack of thriving greenery has lowered crop/herb production and thus made healthy eating a rarity and plant-based medicines a luxury. In summation, the absence of legendaries in their respective jurisdictions have caused many, if not all of the world's natural environments to suffer in some way, which have in turn affected human life.

 

Q: Btw, is there going to be any travel between regions, or are we limited to Hoenn?

A: Travel is limited to Hoenn for the time being.

 

Q: On the factor of subplots, what will we not be allowed to do?

A:

I don't think I can give an answer in concrete terms at the moment, but conceptually:

 

• Keep the limits of your character in mind. Testing out their powers is easily exhausting, and for some of the more powerful champions, potentially life-threatening.

• We'll be limited to Hoenn for now, so interregional travel is a no go.

 

I can add more as we progress. Succinctly put though, if you're questioning its viability, run it past me!

 

' W O R L D B U I L D I N G '

[ Because imagining and describing an apocalyptic Hoenn is going to be a team effort, I thought it would be cool if we had a compiled list of canon traits for that sole purpose. I'll try to grab things from the IC, but if you would like something to be added, let me know. c: ]

 

G E N E R A L

Fun Fact: This roleplay could actually be better named. There is no real reason that it's called Distortion Games. I just made it up on a caprice.

• Hoenn's economy has collapsed, making thievery one of the most high paying "jobs" in the region.

 

F A L L A R B O R - T O W N

• Because of its vicinity to a very active Mt. Chimney, Fallarbor has turned into a sea of volcanic ash. The skies surrounding it are monochrome with the toxic material.

F O R T R E E - C I T Y

• The legendaries instructed champions to meet in the fields beyond Fortree because of their size and seclusion.

• Its Pokémon Center has a caved in roof and a desolate feel to it; it's lit by candles because it doesn't have electricity.

• Branwen and Cathy Poniers live here.

L A V A R I D G E - T O W N

• Because of its vicinity to a very active Mt. Chimney, Lavaridge has turned into a sea of volcanic ash. The skies surrounding it are monochrome with the toxic material.

M A U V I L L E - C I T Y

• Aryanna Hart grew up here.

• Due to Wattson's affinity for electricity, Mauville still has power. It is one of the most popular cities to live in now.

S L A T E P O R T - C I T Y

• Roxanne Myrick grew up here.

• Slateport citizens have slightly accented inflections.

 

 

' T I M E L I N E '

 

N O V E M B E R 2 0 1 4

• The events of the Prologue happen.

M A Y 2 0 1 5

I. Each legendary has contacted their respective champions and has asked them to gather in the fields outside of Fortree City. By this point, the humans' appearances have been altered, and they've been imbued with the powers of their patrons.

II. The champs have gathered in the field, and it suffices to say that most of them hate each others' guts; the collective party is preparing to fragment into smaller groups.

 

' I M P O R T A N T - N E W S '

 

• [5/19] In the 'Additional Notes' section, I've just elaborated on one of the cults I had been rambling on about, but never really explaining. Anti-heroes can portray it to be a semi-ally of sorts, and heroes can utilize it as a villain. // In the IC, there is a post on how we could begin the roleplay towards the bottom of the first page.

• [5/20] As of currently, the M:F ratio is 7:2. We should be ready to begin when it is at least 7:5.

Yup. I believe I have a sentence or two about that in the 'Additional Notes' section of the IC.

Rotom is pretty spectacular, but I don't really consider it a legendary due to its ability to breed and frequency in competitive battling. However, if we run out of legendaries for some reason or another, I might be willing to add it to the list!

Yee, this look interesting. Mind if I reserve Kyurem? I'll get a sheet in later today or tomorrow.

Name: Luke Skarsgard

Age:

Legendary: Zekrom

Appearance:

Before- Luke's hair is dirty blonde and a bit of a mess, and gets wavy when it's too long. He's rather skinny, like Steven, but isn't as pale as his brother. He has grayish-green eyes, but some weird optical illusion caused by his other features make them look almost like emeralds. He likes bright clothes, and usually wears unnecessary accessories (baseball caps, scarves, goggles, etc.) for the sake of looking cool and anime-esque. Also, he can be a bit of a censorkip.gif at times.

After- Upon becoming half-god-dragon, Luke's eyes become cherry red, and his hair turns pitch-black, with two nubby black horns with cyan tips coming out of it. His figure also gains a bit more muscle and a more masculine build.

Personality: Luke is smart, funny, and a bit stuck up. He is easy to get along with, and very self-assured. He is capable of analyzing situations and is a very good tactical thinker, something that Zekrom, as the spirit of Yin, values in a champion. He also likes to travel, and has plenty of books on the six regions, and when he goes on a vacation, he usually makes a point to catch and bring back one or two Pokemon.

Pokémon: (I'll give you the levels later, my phone hates any Pokemon-related websites)

Aerodactyl Lvl. 38

Honedge Lvl. 15

Dragonair Lvl. 35

Espeon Lvl. 25

Whirlipede Lvl. 29 (Right on the edge)

Trapinch Lvl. 12

History: Meh

Abilities/Skills: Can use his patron Legendary's signature attack, Bolt Strike.

Other: He's Steven's brother, if you can't tell.

 

 

EDIT: I just edited in the censorkip.gif part, I forgot about it while making the form.

Love his bro, Spyro ^^

 

Anyways, here's the other twerp

 

Name: Lillia Rosen

Age: 16

Legendary: Lugia

Appearance: BEFORE: She has lengthy red hair, which she keeps in a messy ponytail. Her eyes are a hazel-green color. Her skin is rather tan, with the occasional freckle. She is of average height, with nothing spectacular.

AFTER: Now things get interesting. For one thing, her long hair is cut anime-boy style, and turns completely white. Her drab eye colour turns a deep violet-blue, and her skin becomes paler. Her build becomes much more masculine, as well as becoming taller. The most notable thing? Two deep blue...things poking out of her hair.

Personality: She is like the ocean before and during a storm; calm at first, but when you mess with her, she snaps and becomes a violent hurricane. Keep from pissing her off, and you have a great ally. Her violent side is preferably avoidable, since after her powers were gained, her tempermental outbursts became...eh, pretty bad.

Pokémon:

Archeops- lvl 38

Chatot- lvl 27

Lapras- lvl 30

Spiritomb(cus why not)- lvl 20

She might get more later on

History: (Optional.) meeep

Abilities/Skills: she can throw minor attacks that take much less energy, are faster to charge and are weaker then strong attacks.

Other:yup

I was kinda making him sort of "oppose" Steven to fit the "complete opposite twins" stereotype, and was actually considering naming him Lars, but decided against it at the last second. :3

Okay, here goes. My worst enemy.

 

Name: Miteki Kurasuma

Age: 16

Legendary: Entei

Appearance: Before: He had short spiky black hair and dark-brownish eyes. He is a little taller than most 16 year olds. He is of average build, maybe slightly on the scrawny side. He has a variety of grins, such as the That-was-really-stupid or the Oh-Sorry grin, or, of course, the Takaki-you're-being-awkward grin.

After: Well, not to much of a change. Well, he's got red spiky hair now. He also looks a little less scrawny. He still has those grins though.

Personality: He has this kind of 'cool' attitude- he's pretty laid back, people who converse with him will probably find him quite friendly yet almost- childish. He has this way of teasing his friend Takaki, and an outsider might think that of as annoying, but, really, Takaki doesn't exactly mind. He is very protective of his best friend, Takaki is like his little brother, and anyone else who end up being friends with him. Also a major genius. Like legit.

Pokémon:

Typhlosion- level 45

Gyarados- level 42

Pideot- level 41

Pikachu- level 39

Gengar- level 40

Sudowoodo- level 41

History: Shall stay optional.

Abilities/Skills: The Entei stuff:

Fireballz duh

Can surround himself in fire, because vaporising objects instantly is a cool thing now. SHe can spread that fire to his surroundings so if he really wanted to he could set an entire forest on fire. If he tried hard enough. Also, he can cause magma/lava to burst from the ground. Also immense heat resistance, I guess. Might get more stuff later on, if I get the inspiration to invent one.

Other: He has a katana. I don't care he must have a katana.

 

Well, that sucked.

 

Yep I'm going to make two characters so I will also get that up asap

 

Name:Takaki Sakiyama

Age: 15

Legendary: Zapdos

Appearance: Before- He kind of looked like the kind of person you could easily beat up in a fight. He had brown eyes and short neatly cropped brown hair. He is of average height and a little on the scrawny side.

After: He looks pretty much the same, no weird hair colour changes or anything, just a little taller and tougher. Also his hair seems to be a little messier.

Personality: He's a very shy and quiet person in general. If someone suddenly comes up to him and starts talking to him, the likely response will be a tiny 'Hi'. He tries his best to make people think that he's a nice and friendly person, but sometimes during a thread of talk it falls into awkwardness and dies. The only person who he can talk comfortably with (and therefore insult) is Miteki. Similarly to Miteki, he is very, very protective of his best friend and any others he makes. So far that's only one though. His mood can change very quickly, from a friendly, happy albeit awkward guy to a total demon, should you be foolish enough to piss him off.

Pokémon:

Dragonite- level 42

Aggron- level 42

Luxray- level 39

Empoleon- level 39

Might get more later

History: Shall stay optional

Abilities/Skills: He can of course, issue a bolt of electricity at someone/something. He can create an electric current that can go from temporarily stunning someone to overloading their nerves with an electrical current to the point of death. Of course, that drains his energy. He also can use his generated electric current to speed up his reflex time and speed. That also drains his energy.

Aw, I knew you were going to be upset when I saw Arceus get reserved, Mage. Hopefully you'll find better luck elsewhere, friend. smile.gif

 

I have a quick inquiry if you don't mind me asking. What do we do with Black/White Kyurem? Is there some sort of special rule that we're going to use involving it, are we just going to not include them into this story, or something? I'm completely fine either way, I'm just curious.

QUICK NOTE: I would really like the M:F ratio to even out a little bit before we begin, so if you guys could help with that, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm retracting Ezra King and relinquishing my claim on Giratina to create an Azelf girl for this purpose. Thanks. Can't wait to get started!

'Ello, Batman. (I know this dork in real life.) Welcome to the DC Forum. I'd be happy to reserve Palkia for you, but first, I strongly suggest that you read through a couple of threads on roleplaying before you start character building and etc. They're pretty helpful for beginners.
