    I'm looking for Axiom. I want to thank him for putting together an Alpha Splatbook and posting it on the 1d4chan page.

    Also, I'd like to know if he'd be interested in doing more of what he did. I'm almost getting to the point where everything is pretty ready to start being put online, or at least together into a nice .pdf as he did - except the pokedex's final form.

    Questions, suggestions, etc. all welcome

    There has been some confusion as to how you gain Classes, and this is because I've never explained.

    When a trainer gains a level they might meet the prerequistes to gain a Trainer Class. Trainers can go into one to three of the following eight Classes once they meet the prerequistes: Ace Trainer, Breeder, Capture Specialist, Coordinator, Martial Artist, Psychic, Ranger, or Researcher.
    From there, once they gain the nessecary prerequistes, they may go into one or two Advanced Classes.
    Trainer's all start with the title: Pokemon Trainer. A Pokemon Trainer can take up to three Trainer Classes and/or Advanced Classes. Since Advanced Classes always have a prerequiste of a Trainer Class, a Pokemon Trainer's Feature Options will look like one of the following examples: Three Trainer Classes, never pursuing a speciality in any of the three Trainer Classes. Two Trainer Classes and one Advanced Class, choosing to find an expertise in an area of one of the Trainer Classes chosen. One Trainer Class and two Advanced Classes, choosing to become adept at the class they choose by mastering two aspect of the Trainer Class.

    You gain these Trainer Classes or Advanced Classes instead of gaining a Feature during Trainer Level Up. When you take a Class, you gain two Features anyway so you aren't missing out on your Feature you get during that level.

    When creating the eight major classes, we tried to make certain jobs, as being part of a team of trainers, filled.

    The Researcher and Coordinator give bonuses to their Pokemon, Teammates and their Teammate's Pokemon, so they do a good job as playing leader.

    The Ace Trainer and Capture Specialist can eliminate a threat in the wild by killing a foe or capturing them - removing them from the encounter. This fills the role of an attacker.

    The Ranger and Breeder have many supporting features that help protect their allies and their pokemon, undo dealt damage with their care or fend of wilds. They fulfill a defender role.

    The Martial Artist and Psychic essentially add another body onto the field to attack with, while having pokemon of their own. The fills the role of extra damage, different from the Ace Trainer or Capture Specialist - who can eliminate a threat entirely, so that foes are going down.

    During a Round of Combat, you may issue one command to an Active Pokemon and you may perform one Trainer Action.

    Trainer Actions are numerous and have several special cases but only a few actually use your entire turn so you may not issue a command to an Active Pokemon.

    You may have more then one Pokemon out at a time, but this is discouraged since it gives the GM the chance to use several more wilds in the encounter.

    After Trainer Actions, the Pokemon with the highest Speed goes first. They may use a Move and Shift. If they do not want to use a Move, they may Shift twice. When they use a Move, they roll an Accuracy Check and if they are successful, they roll for damage.

    After rolling damage, you add your Pokemon's Attack or Sp. Attack Stat to the damage, depending on the Move's Range, or no Stat if it is not a damaging Move.

    The Pokemon who is getting hit by the attack applies weaknesses, resistances and then subtracts their Defense or Special Defense from the damage, depending on what type of Range the Move was.

    When targeted by a Move, the foe must roll +1 during their Accuracy Check for every 5 points in their Defense, if hit by a Move that consults Attack or +1 during their Accuracy Check for every 5 points in their Special Defense, if hit by a Move that consults Special Attack.

    Or, you may add +1 to their Accuracy Check for every 10 points in your pokemon's Speed.

    This damage system makes Moves that buff stats very important.

    0 HP is unconscious, if your Pokemon is hit to -100% HP, death savings throws are necessary.

    Humans can be rendered unconscious when their HP is at 0 as well, but they are easily brought to at 1 HP, but they'll need hospitalization after such an injury unless someone on your team has a solution.

    There are a few classes that can heal or stay alive.

    In Ace Trainer, the Enduring Soul is very hard to bring down, and can deal with being at negative HP.

    In Researcher, the Scientist can produce potions in the field from virtually nothing.

    The Breeder can take an Advanced Class in Medic.

    The Psychic can become a Healer.

    The Martial Artist has great HP bonuses, and is generally more durable then other classes.

    Gym Challenges:

    This took a while to figure out how to handle, since you don't want the rest of your party just sitting around, but it's been figured out and it works like clock work now.

    Basically, a 3 vs 3, one on one trainer battle against a Gym Champion - the rest of your team does watch, but it gets fun when everyone is into it.

    These battles take about 5-10 minutes, the allies can watch from the side to Pokedex the gym leader's pokemon (since doing so in battle is a waste of time) and cheer on.

    Building up the fact that they are battling in front of a filled-stadium crowd is important to build hype but this led to the question: Where is the crowd coming from?

    The Gym's campus.

    Gyms are essentially College like campuses with several thousand trainer aiming to replace the Gym Leader once they retire.

    This also presents a place for players to go and arrange matches whenever they like at the local gym.

    This is because everyone want to get many wins against trainers to prove their worth to the Gym Leader. Naturally, higher level students won't always show up since they already know they are in the running for replacing the Gym Leader and need to prove nothing.

    This also eliminates "Our eyes have met! We must battle!" because that's just nonsense. A Trainer should never HAVE to accept a challenge, their pokemon might all be dead or near death and you just want to get through the forest. Yes, trainers sometimes will challenge you and be rough about it but you'll never have to accept the challenge.

    Gyms NEVER need to be done in order.

    Gym Leaders' pokemon wear 'bracers' that limit their Pokemon's power so as not to discourage new trainers. Gym Leaders are also sensible about this matter.

    If you fight Blaine first, he'll assault you with his Charmeleon and Ponyta, battling Brock last ensures that you'll face his Aerodactyl and Rhyperior.

    This format also easily allows for anyone to create their own Campaign setting with whatever Gym leaders you've created.

    You'll find that not everyone wants Badges. In the campaign I'm GM'ing now, only 2 of my players challenged Brock. The other 3 were not interested in collecting Badges.

    Also, 5-10 minutes is an estimate for your first time playing a Gym Leader. In reality, these take 3-5 minutes to get through unless you adding a lot of fluff - that's okay too though, it's really up to your group's style.

    Yes. But at that point, complying isn't a big deal, is it?
    Also, you'd likely inform local authorities, and they'd take care of it.

    Psychics can do this, but at the point you're describing, around level 15, other trainers are doing just as insane things.

    Also, I've never seen my players "grinding." Exp. from battles are high to that and weak pokemon you find are quickly caught up to the rest of your team. Around level 45, your pokemon significantly slow in leveling - but a well thought out level 45 can O.H.K.O. a trainer's level 70 if you know what you're doing with Moves and Type Advantages. I'd say a gap of 35 levels between a foe is dangerous, but still doable from what I've seen in playtesting.

    I propose a sort of honorable conduct inherent in being a trainer. Challenging a weaker or damaged opponent then winning is dishonorable. Declining a challenge is dishonorable. Declining a challenge when all your pokemon are wounded, or the opposing trainer vastly outranks you, is not dishonorable. Sort of a psuedo-chivalric code. People won't want to battle with dishonorable trainers.

    Mewtwo is BBEG material - I'd say he's an exception.

    Also, the Gym Leader's pokemon are obedient and are not looking to "kill" challengers, only defeat them.

    3 vs 3 is fast and fun. Plus if they lose and you win, you get to brag since you are only allowed one challenge per gym per month and your party isn't going to wait around for month for one trainer.

    While honor among trainers is not the same through out there are very many punks.

    Pokedexs and a training license take 2 years after high school (which ends at the age of 16 in the suggested settings) to get and cost about 40,000. This gets you out of trainer school at the age of 18 and you can start your adventures. Punks and assholes probably won't pass exams.

    Considering you can go win money from other trainers or contests, and a Gym Match win gets 4000, for example, everything is actually not very expensive. The 40,000 trainer's license is to justify the player's lack of money at the beginning of the campaign.

    Overland 6, Surface 5, Underwater 2, Sky 4, Jump 7, Power 10, Intelligence 7, Telekinetic, Telepathic, Mind Slaver, Mental Lock

    More Capabilities will be added appropriately. Capabilities for each pokemon is what I'm working on now.

    Other then that, info from the source material doesn't change much.

    This is what separates the video game's pokemon from the tabletop's.

    Capabilities is a new addition for the purposes of Pokemon Tabletop Adventures.
    Each Species of Pokemon move at different rates in various terrains. They have different capacities for jumping strength and physical strength. Some Pokemon can fly while others can breath underwater. Many Species of Pokemon can be trained for being used as a Mount. Others are too small for that but can be used for infiltration as a result of their size. The Capabilities list all keywords relating to static abilities the Pokemon has.
    Examples of some Capabilities:
    Overland 1-Overland 10: This is a scale, accompanied with a meters per turn speed, given to each pokemon where Overland 1 is given to Slowpoke and Overland 7 is given to Suicune.
    Sinker: Pokemon with Sinker cannot swim
    Firestarter: Pokemon with Firestarter can produce flames without using a Move. Some TMs, such as TM 35 Flamethrower, will give a Pokemon the Firestarter Capability as well as the Move Flamethrower.

    Can you explain what these are? I mean, Mind Slaver is fairly self-explanatory, but a bit more in-depth explanation would be much appreciated.

    so it's kinda like additional stats to determine how a pokemon interacts and moves in 3D? also how would this tie in with the new Pokeathlon they recently introduced? (the HG/SS games have a series of minigames that involve pokemon based sports, like sprinting, wrestling, etc)

    Mind Slaver is a Capability unique to Mewtwo.
    He can mentally control the minds of several Pokemon and or Humans, from miles away. He can add a target who fails to make a saving throw by targeting them and using Mind Slaver in place of a Move.

    Mind Lock is not unique to Mewtwo
    Pokemon with Mind Lock cannot have their minds read.

    I have no made rules for the Pokeatholon yet, but I will.
    The Ranger's advanced class, Coach, is directly related to Capabilities and the Pokeatholon.

    For those curious, these are the primary Capabilities.

    Burrow, an underground speed ranked from 1-5. Intelligence, ranked 1-7, where 4 is average. Jump, ranked from 1-10. Overland, ranked 1-10, shows how much your pokemon can Shift per turn. Power, 1-10, is how strong they are/the average weight they can lift. Sky, ranked 1-10 shows how much your pokemon can Shift in the air per turn. Surface, again ranked 1-10, shows how much your pokemon can Shift on water per turn. Underwater is ranked 1-5 and shows underwater speeds.

    Certain HMs/TMs grant Capabilities, or add a rank to them if your Pokemon already has that capability.

    Pokemon and Trainers each get one shift per turn.

    If either choose not to perform an action, they may shift twice.

    If a pokemon is performing a melee attack, they may shift 150% of their usual Shift distance to get to the target.

    A pokemon may shift for free in order to intercept attacks on a check of 6 on d20.

    Okay so we know how Gyms are modeled and how they function. What about the Elite 4/Regional Championships (for example the Indigo Plateau in Kanto).

    Grow up.

    Veterans must re-earn the right to enter. The championships are limited to 64 entries per year. Show 8 badges, issued to you that year, and you're signed up. When re-challenging Gyms to reacquire badges, Gym Leaders will NOT use the power bracers on their pokemon.

    Get first place in the 64 and you may challenge the Elite 4. You enter with 6 pokemon, and get healed between the rounds, but must win all against all 4 in 3 vs 3 matches to become a Champion.

    My first players participated, I placed them in different brackets and sure enough they made the top 4. They battled each other, congratulated the opposite when they won and the winner fought against the elite four and won. Barely. He was crowned a champion.

    He battled a previous Champion, Red, in an exhibition match, but surrendered halfway through.

    Certain legendaries are best kept uncaught unless you're aiming to be BBEG. However, if you are allied with legends, you can find ways to summon them. One of my players could summon Deoxys because he protected its egg as it was reincarnating itself over a few months.

    A note about the championship - it's for sure a good way to end a campaign. After the BBEG is taken down, they got let in for free, even though they had 10 or so badges from mix and matched regions, for epic public service. After working together for ages, they were forced to see which of them went the farthest.

    I also want to eventually run a campaign that starts with a Championship, the PCs meeting each other by placing high.

    I'll give you this:
    It finds way to find synergy with nature more then the Ranger who masters it, more then the Breeeder who brings nature up and more then the Psychic or Martial Artist who are practitioners of nature's power.

    Pressure does exist, when activates it reduces all foes' Frequencies At-Will -> Every Other Trun -> Battle -> Center

    Wondertomb cannot happen.

    Not very rare

    Evolve to Leafeon with Leaf Stone or in a dense forest.
    Evolve to Glaceon with Cold Stone or in a snowy region.

    Special circumstances result in special encounters.

    If you never take a Class, then you'll have to always pick from the Pokemon Trainer Features. There are about 25 to pick from.

    The general gist of it was that it was a 4E game, lich tries to summon an elemantal army, mutates the players into the legenadry's, players can't stop him.
    Once P:TA comes out, the gm will be running a game that takes place a few thousand years later. The elemantal army (which im sure you figured out are pokemon) have been tamed, and the lich was somehow stopped.

    However, Team Generics leader has a Spirtomb that, intead of being made of 108 souls, is only made of 1... the lich.

    Turnns out, Team Generics leader is just a puppet... its really run by his wondertomb.

    No discs.
    Syringes with a liquid that can only be used once.

    They must be applied at Pokmon Centers since the pokemon needs to be sedated as it painfully grows the new organ that allows it to use the new move.

    HMs are more like reusable syringes that prick the pokemon.

    any TM can be an HM, any HM can be found in the form of a TM

    Like an Abra with teleport using confusion, moving, confusion, moving, when the enemy might actually catch up, teleport to the other side of the field. Or flying pokemon who never need to swoop in for an attack?

    Close quarter pokemon can move more then usual if they are using a melee attack during their turn. Ranged attack do have a limit, so even flying pokemon need to close the distance eventually. Teleport has a 10 minute cool down, so you can do that tactic once.

    I have never thought about that. Ever. I'll think about it later. Maybe.

    So far it's been easy for fast pokemon to play keep away, but once they are hit, they go down. easily. It's all up to what kind of pokemon you want.

    see >>8004737
    You can triple class if you wanted to, but you can't take any advanced classes if you did. Or multi-class and take one advanced class. Or take one class and two advanced classes.

    not if they're sedated/numbed at a pokemon center. then they're just sitting in place for a while. no harm in that.

    however, using a TM/HM out of a center would surely make them hate you if they understood it was your fault.

    They'd also probably fear needles in the future. No Full Heals anymore.

    Return is the move that utilises the Happiness in a more positive light, by rewarding the amount the Pokémon likes the trainer. It is a Normal Type Physical Attack with 20PP and 100% accuracy. It's power is calculated by the following means:
    Base Power = Pokémon Happiness / 2.5

    This gives a maximum result of 102 and a minimum result of 1

    I was thinking of creepy/large pokemon.

    I wasn't thinking creepy in that sense.

    Go for it guys.

    Anybody else got questions about the tabletop?

    Fun matches. :3

    The tabletop? Are you (or anyone in this thread) expecting to run an online game, for one?

    About the actual mechanics: Unsure of this has been asked, but is there a Capability that allows water-types to be amphibious regardless of whether they would normally be? Such as how Seaking and the like just sort of...float or flop around in the games.

    Yes. My players didn't get their classes at level 1. Two got them at level 3 and one of them got it at level 2. One Has already began multiclassing at level 6.

    >> Researcher Sam 02/10/10(Wed)01:18 No.8010110
    It's fine, I'm just glad to get a basic idea of it's stats. And I assume Dodrio is usable as a mount?

    Also, since pokemon only get 1 stat point at each level, their stats will be much lower than in the games, where they get multiple points for multiple stats. Does this make the pokemon in the tabletop game less powerful, or do the mechanics take the lower scores into account?

    Even back then Psychics dominated the battlefields.

    Old stories said that those humans who possessed the strange gifts either were blessed by Arceus himself and others say that they were spawn of unholy breeding of man and pokemon.

    They seem a little basic right now, but they do a good job of representing the variety of things to do.

    Dual Wielding seems like it should be its own mechanic because of how double battles are.

    Mechanics take the lower stats into account, also this further allows for a pokemon's individuality since their stat will be so different from the next dodrio who is getting better stats else where.

    Dodrio will have "Landmount"

    You can say how tall/heavy your pokes are - up to 50% away from the norm. Just to add more 'individuality' for your pokes.

    I think I've changed less then 10 pokemon. But other then that, you're right about how I found base stats.
    Since I can't possibly playtest all of the pokemon, I'm leaving it up to the internet to find pokemon who will need updates in later releases.

    "mainly looking for events and characters to go along with them. big things like in the games where team rocket took an office building hostage, slowpokes being hunted for their tales, Bill and his transformation into a pokemon... strange and unique events to stand out with"

    and do you still gain money every time you beat a trainer? like, you take bets on victory?

    I make my players agree with NPCs before hand on the gamble if they do at all.

    How about Rocket is revived, so everyone goes looking for Geovanni, but the whole show is actually being run by a Level 100 Alakazam who is just using illusions and mind control to use the executives?
    Or an organization that is bulldozing habitats and killing pokemon who oppose them?

    a gang rivaling team rocket takes over a stadium or the like... with guns
    caught in a cave-in that traps her in the mines where they dig up evolution stones

    always liked the idea of an experimental Hyper Ball. mad-expensive, or maybe have to have major pull with Professor Oak. basically balls with immediate links to your PC, so you could call any of your pokemon right from the PC. take up a lot of power though, and can be exhausted after 6-10 uses for a few hours, depending on the rate you toss em out
