    Hey /tg/. I guess I'm doing another Pokemon: Tabletop Adventures update thread.

    I am entirely done with class features. That leaves the bestiary to finish, and the rules to type up in a sensible manner. Then, Beta is good to go.

    I'll post the list of Classes and Advanced Classes if anyone wants more information about any of them in a second.

    Like always, any questions about anything are welcome and if there are any things you want to see in this game do not hesitate to say so.

    Legendaries are completely catchable when handled correctly, but their loyalty is virtually unbendable.

    As soon as you send out a captured god, they'll likely about face and kill you.

    Allying with legendaries is possible, but summoning them to the field of battle for your sake is not easy. It's unlikely that during play you'd even meet a legendary pokemon unless your GM hates you or it is the BBEG, or major world ending threat.

    That seems a bit unfair to me, especially since legendary power levels are diverse (how good they are competitively notwithstanding).

    It's been implied at times that a trainer could catch and raise, say, Articuno the same it could any other particularly rare pokemon.

    Battles play very differently. Since a party will have 2 to 5 trainers, they'll each have a pokemon out. Wild encounters look like this:

    x5 Pidgey
    x2 Pidgeotto
    x1 Pidgeot

    and during a round of combat, fastest pokemon go first, move around on the field and attack. Each Move from the games has been translated to tabletop format. Request any move and I'll post it here.

    Trainers, during wild encounters, also get involved by supporting their pokemon or if you are a Psychic or Martial Artist, attacking the wild yourself.

    Many pokemon are used as mounts for land, sea and sky.
    If a pokemon can be used for any of these, it says so in their pokedex entry. You do NOT need to know the Move Fly.

    Fly is a special maneuver during battle, flying is something many pokemon can do.
    For example, Metagross can fly, but it can't use Fly.

    There are rules related to mounts, but generally you are not on them during battle. Riders, a Ranger Advanced Class, can do battle while mounted and specialize in mounted tricks.

    Rules like that are up to your GM. I'm not going to say you can't play with the system I'm making a certain way. I'm making gameplay rules, not settings rule - only suggestions.

    Pokemon will not gain exp unless they are learning something. Switching out mid battle will give exp but will not promote their confidence. For example, if you keep switching out that Magikarp just to gain exp, it will be sad that you have no faith in and be unable to evolve.

    Gym matches require 3 vs 3 in the basic world rules.
    Though if your GM allows it, trucking through with only 1 pokemon is plausible, but boring.
    >> Anonymous 01/01/10(Fri)17:23 No.7379658
    That's a bit of a misconception. Few pokemon truly and honestly suck when fully evolved. From the perspective of OU IS THE BESTEST TIER AND THE ONLY ONE EVER then yes, but it's called overused for a reason. The pokes there are above average, yet are for some reason considered the average.

    A lot of NUs work in UU too.

    GM will send Police after you for doing that if they're doing it right. There is one Chief of Police Jenny, and Chief of Medicine Joy in the alpha campaign I've been running and my players never met either. Normally when encountering police or the medical staff at centers it's no-name NPCs.

    In the newer games where items have pictures, an exp. share is this weird lightning rod helmet thing.

    Maybe the pokeball beams the information into their brain, and all the exp. share just makes it so the pokeball doesn't have to "take a picture" of the fight first by sending it out?

    To those arguing tiers - they don't really exist in the tabletop just to let you know. The trainer's abilities can augment pokemon to make many different things out of a single pokemon.

    That's what the emphasis in this game is - trainer options, something absent from every other pokemon media.

    It's a one vs one battle, but due to the mechanics of this game, one vs one is about 2-4 minutes. Other party members can dex the Gym leader's pokemon and observe their strategies.

    Yes. If a pokemon is telekinetic, it will say so in their pokedex entry.

    Yes. There are several Psychics who can read the past by holding things that work in the police department, not as enforcement but as CSI.

    Sorry guy, I didn't realize I was making a game that requires you to use the Trainer options. Oh wait! I didn't. Trainer options can be played without. Nothing about Trainer options are entirely required for the pokemon half of this game but they do add a lot. Use common sense.

    There are several Advanced Classes where you can get Type bonuses.

    As for combat, the battles don't take any longer then any other battle in another game. Usually players will use one pokemon for an encounter and let them rest until the next center since they'll be damaged. Players will need to use the rest of their team to get through the miles between rest points. However, short rests can help pokemon stand another battle. Staying in forests overnight is a bad idea though. Pic related.

    Suggestions, but GMs can change it however they'd like to.

    How hostile. There is a system explained in previous threads that is new, but based on the video game's stats.

    I have a question for you now. If who you call retards want to play a game, why stop them? I know my testers have enjoyed playing and there are people interested. No one is forcing you to play or even look at it. If someone wants to play a game, let them play. I'm not forcing it on anyone. Since I'm making it for my circle of friends, I thought I'd just put it up on the internet for anyone else who wanted to try a homebrew pokemon. I'm not seeing the big deal. Is a pokemon tabletop going to ruin your view of tabletop gaming forever?

    this shit doesnt belong here,
    the only reason this thread exists is for faggots who get tired of legendaries schooling them in online battles and just want to play VIRTUAL video games with their friends. any system that aspires to all the depth of a JRPG's and pokemon's at that is utter shit that doesn't belong here if only because its fucking embarrassing

    as to your second question, I genuinely like pokemon and cant think of a single reason an idiot like you thinks the best way to expand on that universe and make it a more interesting and dynamic world to play in is to copy everything directly from the games while blatantly ignoring every innovation thats made role playing games fun for the last 4 decades

    Generally there is no need for aiming at a specific spot on pokemon but if you aimed for a specific part, a higher Accuracy Check would be needed.

    However, this Feat is related:
    Aim For the Horn!: Trainer Feature
    Prerequisites: Pokemon Trainer, WIS 13
    Daily – Every 4 levels gained, you may perform this Feature another time per day.
    Target: Your pokemon targeting with a Move.
    Effect: On a roll of 19 or 20 during Accuracy Check, your pokemon’s attack will deal Neutral damage regardless of immunities or resistances.

    I think Ash's Pikachu just has high stats in its attacks and speed. I'm not sure if it can take a hit. You can raise specific stats in the tabletop and ignore other stats you don't care about to customize your pokemon.

    Hmm. Well, I admit I'm no genius but I'm not an idiot.
    When I look at my game there are several things that can't be done in the video games. End of story.

    As for innovation, who said what I'm doing is innovative?
    It's a homebrew game. I'm imitating existing systems. I'm not an entire department of tabletop gaming R&D.

    Several starters are found in the wild. It's up to your GM to spawn them.

    If you dex a pokemon, the pokedex can tell you the pokemon's habitat, but specific areas aren't just given to palyers. However, talking to NPCs about 'hey, what's in that forest outside of town?' can help here and there.

    Also, there are some Advanced Classes that can "spawn" specific types of pokemon. If you can narrow it down "squirtle is in that forest" then use a feat that finds a water type, that'll probably work.

Is that enough "innovation" for you? it shouldnt be hard to figure this shit out on your own, pick up your pokemon game and ask yourself if that is what you'd use to make a table top with, if you've played anything but D&D and have a lick of sense it would not be a yes answer, you are designing your system after a game that hasn't changed in almost 20 years.

    Yes. Commonly when I am using criminals against my players, their primary targets are the Players, not the pokemon.

    Even wilds will target trainers more often then their pokemon.

    Interception is common, trainers dodging a pokemon is less common.

    Wilds will not wait for you to send out a pokemon either. When a wild Charizard sees you, it's not thinking "I'll wait for them to send out a pokemon so we can 'battle'" it's thinking "Oh look, breakfast"

    Another thing about that is that wild pokemon must either be killed or captured. Felling a wild is not enough, they will keep coming at you or run away early. There is 'fainting' but if you pokemon is lowered too far into -HP%, you'll need to make a death savings throw. Pokemon die.

    6 pokemon on your person. Sign up for a PC account for more. HM slaves don't exist. If your pokemon can swim and hold you up, you have water transportation. If your pokemon can climb with you on it's back, you can do that too.

    Ragrding the evolution mechanic, it has gone from a rigid level/happiness/evolution-stone mechanic, to a far more lucid, play-it-by-ear method.

    For example, a GM may rule that an eevee struck by a thunder attack that would otherwise kill it for good, instead re-actively evolved into a jolteon to save its own life. Or, that because a trainer never lets his caterpie finish a fight, and instead switches it out mid-battle for someone else to finish (and split the exp), that is has low self-esteem, and probably won't evolve for a while, even though its level is high enough to.

    Money and means for your trainer to level up.

    Game Mechanic wise, the Pokedex is a means to level up. Trainer gain levels not through EXP, but by events.
    Badges, Ribbons and Medals gain a trainer a level. Every 25 pokedex scans gain you a level. Every 10 pokemon you record as owned in your dex gains you 1 level. If you do something really amazing and noteworthy, your GM can give you a level.

    wouldn't it be just like real life in that some places have deadlier shit than others? besides, I would assume you would only actively look for the high-level stuff when you can take it on anyway.

    Think of this this way: you could live in a peaceful north america-like area, nothing put some mild pest problems (low level bugs,ratatta etc.) but head deep enough into the forest then you might run into wolves or a bear or something (ursaring, mightyenna, etc).

    Similarly, you could live in a place like Australia, filled with Khangaskan and various poisonous motherfuckers. Sure, there'll only be weaker ones around the populated areas (mostly due to the people in said area catching/killing anything that's too much of a threat), but head deep enough into the wild and shit will fuck you up.

    I know this is pretty trivial, but will the biologically and physically impossible aspects of the game be retconned out, or will they just be considered things that are possible in the Pokemon world but not in ours? Plants breeding with animals, Wailord's weight, endless supplies of water for moves like Water Gun, etc. Sorry if you've already answered this in a previous thread.

    Impossible breeding - skitty wailord - retconned out.
    Wailord weight is still canon. Sending out a Wailord indoors (not in an official stadium built for battle) is suicidal, it'll probably kill you, and illegal.
    Water pokemon need to drink a lot of water to allow them to use their water attacks. They have organs that allow them to preform what is basically magic though.

    That's shit.

    I mean, that's really shit.

    This'll probably get ignored, but I always figured: there's enough similar DNA for 'mon to interbreed. The offspring takes the form of the mother, which makes sense biologically. It's either live birth or eggs depending on the type of the species (so, say, growlithe and kangaskhan give birth to live cubs / joeys being mamallian and marsupial, and pidgeot and charmeleon lay eggs, being avian and reptile). I don't know what's going on with rock and steel-types that are obviously inorganic, as opposed to lucario and scizor and similar.

    I suppose you could work out a map depending on breeding patterns, but that would look worse than a London Underground map with a game of Mornington Crescent traced on in rainbow markers.

    There ARE male kangaskhan. That shit is bananas.

    Most of the stuff in the games and anime is oversimplified or otherwise dumbed down for children so that their parents don't complain about talking about animals fucking, or whatever.

    I can just imagine the damage it could do. We are talking about a pokemon that is literally the embodiment of the universe not working the way it is supposed to. Space might start to warp around it.

    Your players run into Missingno and before they can attack, it disappears. Obviously, don't tell them exactly what it was just yet. Next time they send out their pokemon, they find that some of them have devolved, some show no signs of change but have had their stats radically altered (might not discover this until they realize that Water Gun is doing a hell of a lot less damage than it should be, or that Golem is fainting at a single Body Slam).

    Or they run into it, battle, and it runs. They pursue it only to find themselves back in a town they know is miles away from where they were, and suddenly everyone but them speaks gibberish that only they don't understand.

    For some reason the holder series comes to mind.

    On a dark night with a new moon in january, an old man will ask if you'd like to see how to catch a pokemon. You must tell him yes. If you still have second thoughts, you may tell him no, though he may still haunt your dreams for 666 days.

    You must watch the old man intently as he demonstrates this process, and you must not leave or look away until he is finished. As soon as he is done, you must fly away to a coastal city as quickly as possible. If you do not, the old man will knock you unconscious, where you will be taken into the woods, raped, and eaten.

    Once you are there, quickly leave the city and travel the coast. A strange pokemon will appear. Do not move. It will reach into your bag and take an item out. Let it. If you display any fear or anger it in any way, your save data will become corrupted. When it is gone, leave as quickly as possible, and you will find that your bag is overflowing with the item the pokemon took... just be careful the next time you visit the hall of fame...

    Missingno. would probably not exactly be cthulu. After all it goes down quickly. Little to know life. All it does is clone stuff. Hell, if your players see mewtwo being created/born in a lab, it wouldn't be to farfetch'd (lulz) to see Missingno. in the tube next to him.

    Now 'M on the other hand. He fucks shit up.

    Then there is Charizard 'M, Any pokemon that looks at it imediatly turn's into a Charizard 'M. If there is one in your party, your entire party turn's into Charizard 'M. Put one in a box, that entire box turn's into Charizard 'M. You so much as LOOK at a Charizard 'M, you are going to get a bad end.

    Or perhaps they don't have the wider empathy needed for someone who's a true champion-level trainer. That is, a larger number of humans can empathize with certain types of Pokemon than one who can do so with ANY Pokemon.

    According to Bulbapedia, the ones that do evolve tend to either evolve into other glitch pokemon, or they evolve into real pokemon. 3TrainerPoké for example evolves into Kangaskhan at level 1, or Clefairy at level 128. There's another one that evolves into Charizard at level 209, and one that evolves into something or other at 255.

    Which reminds me, that's another thing that needs to be taken into account. Glitches that are technically real Pokemon, but have impossible stats and levels. Lv 138 Golduck anyone?

    So, what, entire forums that sit around all day, posting, trying to invoke the only purely digitized species/line of pokémon on their home computers?


    So, 4chan, but with a purpose, then. Might work as an enemy leader. Succeeds as you walk into the room, during the battle hacks into an online database of information of energy patterns of specific moves and abilities, changing its attack patterns to suit the situation. Or maybe he harries you from some other continent digitally transmitting his porygon to whatever place you're in and transferring attacks to it over broadband/wireless.

    Shit, talk about a boss battle.

    Technically lower stat gains. When a pokemon evolves in the games, its stats change as if it had been evolved from level 1 because that's determined by base stats.

    Actually, there -is- a method that major size-difference breeding could occur.

    That is, if Pokemon breed like amphibians rather than mammals. Considering they lay eggs, it's reasonable. That is, male sperm packet + female infertile laid eggs = fertilized pokemon egg, which'll hatch after X amount of time.

    It's pretty darn obvious that they do, if you think about it.

    Nobody sees Pokemon engaging in any kind of mating behaviour, per se. They don't give birth. You just find eggs when Pokemon are kept together, usually faster if they're friendly. They're even capable of cross-"species" progeny, especially Dittos.

    Odds are what happens is that if an egg is fertilized, it proceeds to rapidly cannibalize the rest of the sperm packet for energy and materials to form a hard shell around the Pokemon ova, which leaves you with a hard-shelled egg that popped up seemingly out of nowhere...but would disintergrate quickly if there was nothing to fertilized/be fertilized by. Such speedy "creation" wouldn't be all that far-fetched, considering how much mass a Pokemon can put on going from one evolutionary stage to another.

    Hai gaiz. Beta tester here. You'll spend more time deciding on feats for your warrior in DnD than you will on writing down a pokemon's stats. It's simple. There's a base, and things like natures modify it. Moves are static unless there are existing egg moves, TMs (ie: if the pokemon was received in a trade), deciding the ability is simple enough and is predetermined via said pokemon, etc;etc.

    tl;dr: sorry you have to write in tabletop games.

    It's not that much work, and you become interested in the development of each of your individual pokemon akin to how you would a character in any other game. If you're lazy, shoot yourself.


    It's easy enough to do stats. If they're lazy, they can run balanced builds that take little to no thought.

    'sides, if you fear that your players won't be assed, remind them that starting at lower levels lessens the work of rolling. Sound familiar, /tg/? It might be because it's the logical conclusion considering less levels to deal with obviously equals less allocation of character expansion points.

    Hey buddy, >>7382589 here. Found it. It's in Move_List_Rules.doc.

    Move List Rules. Right. Obviously. God I'm blind.
    >> Anonymous 01/01/10(Fri)22:30 No.7382929
    I was too busy reading the move list itself to look around.
    Now, it all makes a lot more sense. Thanks.

    Some of these moves look pretty awesome, but the scale of damage is way big on thing that can be used per encounter.

    I wonder how quickly pokemon go down?

    Oh god. Imagine standing around town, minding your own business, when suddenly, SPLAT! Right in your face, a big wad of nasty purple gunk that smells like the distilled essence of pig shit, rotting eggs, and roadkill. You look around, dazed and confused, trying to find what the fuck just assaulted your sense of smell. In the window of a tall building, almost too far away to see, you can just barely make out something purple and white moving around.

    It's a Skuntank. It's laughing at you and giving you the finger.

    This makes me think about catching the pokemon and turning them into armors so you fight while using their powers after capturing their essence.

    Don't know how you'd get your first one.

    Unless you're given Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle armor to start off

    Boot camp.

    Then when your comp starts up you can pick between your Mac OS or your Windows OS.

    Needs to be a new mac. Less then a few years old.

    First one i tried to post. Had to move these around.

    Also all of these are in the Megaup link posted in this thread.

    All thats left are Hitecs Moemon, which are also included in the link, as well as an assload of awesome images.
    >> Halfwing !!Slarp0p0hVx 01/02/10(Sat)00:17 No.7384601
    yes they are, but there is an assload of them. and every image that stark has ever posted is in there.

    and then there are still ANOTHER 5 ASSLOADS OF IMAGES.

    and, yes the link is safe, however, i did get 2 errors when unzipping the file, but they were probably just a few corrupt images. nothing to worry about.
