When You Become A Pokémon - OOC

Recommended Posts

Alright, I admit it, YAAD inspired me.

 

Plot

 

The bloodstained Umbreon scowled at the orb of energy. "Are you sure?"

 

Next to him, an equally bloodstained Espeon nodded. Like Umbreon, she peered into the energy orb. It glowed red, illuminating the cavern. "I'm sure. If we are to stop him, we need more help. We need to call them."

 

Umbreon sighed, and summoned an arcane cloud of energy before blasting it into the ball. "Dream on, humans. Legends are awaking, the monster Leafeon rises."

 

We curse you, we bless you

For ever and ever and ever

The monster Leafeon cries to the earth

And the earth lies bare before him

For ever

Legends rise

But beware the shadows in legend

Even gods are not to be trusted

For that shadow is long and dark

Its bearer ages old...

 

-----

 

You've been turned into a Pokémon! Last night, you were sleeping as usual, and then you had dreams. Dreams of a bloodstained Umbreon and Espeon. Dreams of a Leafeon who awakened Legends. Nightmares of your worst fear come true. The next morning? You were a Pokémon, and you need your Pokémon friends to help you now. But wait! It seems there are others turned into Pokémon...

 

Setting

 

The Kalos region is a diverse land in a world of even more diversity. It's also the epicenter of the transformations. World map:

Rules

 

DCF and Freeforms rules apply.

No oneliners. I'm on mobile, and if something looks too short to me, it is.

Introductory paragraphs required. No form.

PG13 please. I can understand some gore during a fight, but please don't get graphic. If someone gets their head smashed against something/a similar level of gory, fade to black. No ...erm... naughtiness please. Profanity is acceptable if you aren't slathering your posts with it and use it sparingly. I'd prefer to see damn/hell for swearing, though.

No godmodding. Please.

Powerplays should not be everywhere. It's acceptable if you are Mega'd out or using a Z move, otherwise nope, and do NOT make your character hit everyone or dodge everyone. Roll a RNG. If you roll below the accuracy of the move stated in canon, you got hit. If you roll higher, you didn't. Be sure to account for evasion/accuracy modifiers too. -- accuracy always hits.

No members of the Sue family allowed here.

Any Pokémon can be played except Legendaries. Shinies are allowed, so go ahead! Sun/Moon Pokémon are allowed, as long as they've been officially revealed due to spoilers. If you really want to play one that's not officially revealed, it may be possible. You can play canonical variants other than Alolan forms or a noncanon variant that does not change typing/moveset. For noncanon variants, please make sure they are recognizable as the intended Pokémon species.

You can have as many OCs as you can RP. They can know your name if they know, but unless you're really famous those who don't know you won't know your name.

 

Signups OPEN!

Been looking for an RP to restart RPing in, and this one has my interest. But I have one question; what Pokemon are we NOT allowed to be? I'm assuming legends is one of them unless you state otherwise, but are there any other restrictions?

I think the obvious ones would be the major legendaries like Mew, Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-Oh, etc. I just want to know if we can be shiny or not

So down for this. I just hope the math-ing doesn't murder me <:3

 

I, too, would like to know if we can be shiny.

Hm. I'm all in for this, the only problem for me is deciding which Pokemon is THE VERY BEST LIKE NO ONE EVER WAS. *shot*

 

Also, this sentence confuses me:

No members of the Sure family allowed here.

What is the Sure family? And are we using Sun/Moon Pokemon?

 

Edit: Oh and where is this happening? In reality-universe or in Pokemon-universe? And if it's in Pokemon-universe, which region would it be?

Also, are we going to be allowed unlimited OCs like YAAD? Would the OCs know our names in the beginning? Would we know our OCs as soon as we recognize them?

I assume we'd be limited to a six-party or less of partner 'Mons, right? Or is it just as many as we can comfortably RP?

Oops. I meant Sue. As in, Mary Sues and Gary Sues. You're allowed anything except Legendary Pokémon, including Shinies and Sun/Moon if you so desire. Partner Pokémon are as many as you can RP. The OCs depend. They may know your name if they know you. Otherwise, probbly not unles you're famous.

 

This happens in the Pokéverse. It'll happen in Kalos - that has the highest amount of native wild Pokémon canonically. Whike nonatives will definitely get involved, the Pokémon games have Trainers moving literally everywhere....

 

As soon as I edit the front post, this is open to signups!

How do the sign ups work exactly?

Let me know what Pokémon you want to play in what colour (shiny/normal/variant). I'll add it to the OP.

 

I'll note that variants are allowed as long as they don't change typing or moveset learned.

One more quick question, can we start out as the final evolution or do we have to start out as the first stage?

I guess base stats would be arbitrary then? Because we don't know the base stat distribution for any Sun/Moon pokémon. Neither do we know their movepools or hidden abilities, and for a lot we only know the sprites. (demo + dataminers = leaks) I know the base stat totals can be guessed for some (Solgaleo, Lunala, Kommo-o, Marshadow, Magearna), but distribution is also important. And I guess you count mythicals (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Shaymin, Darkrai, Arceus, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect, Victini, Diancie, Volcanion, Hoopa, Magearna and possibly Marshadow) as legendaries? And the island guardian deities as well?

 

I am interested in joining this though!

Are all partner Pokemon unique (no duplicates between players)? If so, I'd like to reserve F!Meowstic and Raichu.

 

Edit: Also Gardevoir.

Arceus has hardly ever shown up at huge disasters in pokémon movies, leaving him out is no problem.

 

Kalos is the source of infinity energy, a perfect location to set a plot like this, since there is no limit to what can be done with infinity energy. Palkia wouldn't be required - and also wouldn't make any sense with these events. Palkia is the ruler of space, not the transformer of people.

I am going to reserve a shiny Reuniclus and a male Pidgeot as two of my partners if there are no duplicates

In case there are no duplicates I'd like to reserve Bisharp and Yanma. And - if I can be this greedy - I'd also like a Sylveon and/or an Absol.

 

If you're interested, Yanma cuz it's CandyEvie's favorite pokémon and Sylveon cuz it's Trickywi's mascot. I took Bisharp and Absol just cuz they're cool.

I'd like to reserve Shiny Ninetales, normal Gyrados, shiny Butterfree, please.

How many partners can we have? And will we be doing some kind of character sheets at some point?

 

I'd like to reserve Shiny Ninetales, normal Gyrados, shiny Butterfree. If you decide less than that, just the Ninetales and Gyarados or their base forms if you decide that.

They already said as many partner pokemon as you can handle and no character sheets, but you do need to make an introductionary paragraph.

I still want to know if we have to start out as the beginner stage or if we can start out as the final evolution

Also, what variations (if any) can we have for ourselves or our partners?

Already answered, they said any variations that do not change the typing and/or moves a pokémon can learn. This would actually mean Alolan forms would not be allowed, and neither would cosplay pikachu and rotom alternate forms be... This actually really does need more clarification. What about male/female meowstic? And burmy's cloacks? And Castform's forms? Silvally's RKS-system?

 

At least the statement confirms that the following variations should be available:

 

- Orange islands variations (including Pinken Island variations, but excluding crystal onix)

- Spiky eared Pichu

- Shellos/Gastrodon East/West Sea

- Cosplay Pikachu without costume

- Battle bond Greninja

- Basculin red/blue stripes

- Golden Sudowoodo

- Snowman snorlax

- Giant dragonite? (I guess this one would a bit too... erm... powerful...)

- Raichu-tailed Pikachu (yes, that exists)

- I guess actually any slight modification to the Pokémon's appearance that doesn't change it's type or moveset would be allowed, but those are just some canon examples that should be allowed if said rule applies.

Nothing like a ban on legendaries to make you realize how many of your favorite Pokemon are legendaries. :/

 

How much can we modify the appearance of a Pokemon if we want to design our own "variants"?
