    This. Who already is playing this and having fun with alpha?

    Today, my players wrecked several wilds and are quickly becoming the type of party where everyone would easily be able to know where they were.

    Out of 4, 2 started with charmanders, 1 started with pichu and the last guy convinced me to let him start with a ponyta.

    They're burning everything down in their path on routes, to make a path for future traveling that'll be easier on them.

    They're in Pewter. They now have a few weedles, a nidoran, a rattata, a pidgey, and a caterpie in their team as well, and they're all at level 0 still. No classes yet, but two are going into ace trainer, one is going into researcher and the last one is taking up breeder. They'll have enough stats to become their classes by level 2. They're almost at level 1 from pokedexing wilds.

    Over all, a major success. What I want to do is hit them with something that'll stop them from burning down everything in the future.

    I'm also looking for a plot, but I'm not planning to introduce it until they each have a few more pokes.

    I'm a late-comer, so I came in while the plot was already going, but my DM likes to just have shit start happening after, like, big Gym battles and stuff, then have the players figure out what's going on.

    He's also pretty good at thinking on his toes. We've screwed over a couple plot points with lucky rolls but he's managed to keep the plot on rails without feeling railroady.

    Since the other players browse 4chan and I have intimate plot details I shouldn't give out info in danger of being a blabbermouth.
    Since I came in so late the GM had me take over for a fairly powerful NPC. Researcher/Capture Specialist/Petrologist. Essentially EVOLUTION STONES EVERYWHERE plus CAPTURE FUCKING EVERYTHING. 'course, I don't really need to capture much since I started with pokemon averaging around the 50s in level.

    Also, if you know a lot about Pokemon Out of game, Researcher is fun, since it essentially lets you metagame all that pokeknowledge you've built up since elementary school.

    What kind of players are they? If they're slashing and burning their way through Kanto maybe they're not really all that interested in a plot more complex than "Here's an evil team, go kick their asses."

    Or maybe some legendary gets pissed at them for their wanton destruction, and the campaign involves them having to escape the wrath of Shaymin the god of nature and his bro the time-traveler Celebi.

    My own area, might be just a city and the local suburbs. I lived in Japan for a while and I was thinking of setting it a place resembling Tokyo metro area and Saitama. Saitama is basically the New Jersey of Japan, parts of it are pretty and rural but there are a lot of rough industrial towns. I was kind of inspired by Jake Adelstein's memoir about being a crime reporter in that area.

    Beta is three parts: Trainer's Guide, GM's Guide, and Bestiary.

    All the Moves, Classes, and such have been fluffed out (the Trainer's Guide portion), and I'm compiling all the myriad word docs into one cohesive pdf file on that.

    Mystic's still not planned for Beta, though. Just not tested enough yet.

    Player's guide isn't too far off from done, though. I'm actually working on it right now (well, was till I got distracted by those character sheets), and I'm pretty much down to writing up rules and making it a more interesting read.

    GM's guide... hasn't really been touched yet, at least on my end. That's the one with more "How to run this, here are the rules you don't want your players knowing, etc." By that last bit, I'm referring to things like capture rates - you want them knowing that certain things will benefit the capture, but knowing the specific bonuses encourages metagaming.

    Bestiary is the updated Pokedex. Fluff on that seems to be somewhere in the "F-G" range, so that could take a bit. I'm thinking the majority of the actual content for that sucker's ready to go, though.

    You know Axiom, you never cease to amaze me with all the work you do for this project.

    Bestiary will just need to be copy/pasted into a pdf program and I'll need to index it/organize it.
    I'm thinking I won't do all of the biology entries by the time of the beta release, so i'll just give out what i have done so far and do Beta 1.01 updates or something.

    GM book is going to be small. It's just how to run the game... but apparently /tg/ knows how to based on how many people are already playing. The legendary bestiary will also be in here since the players will not have access to it for obvious reasons.

    The regular bestiary will be able to be freely read by players, but for fun's sake i'd encourage players to only read the sections relevant to pokemon they've pokedexed.

    Basically, if the player has fluff as to why they already have a pokemon, I'd let them have it. So long as it's below level 10. The starter they're given is level 5 or 10. Depends on the GM. If they want a common second stage pokemon, I'd let them have it. Its actually a bad idea since they want to evolve pokemon to allow for more pokedex entries to level up more, but if it's crucial to their story let em run with it.

    They do not. If a player is dealing a large amount of damage, they are a Psychic or a Martial Artist. The weapon proficiencies are purely meant for other trainers to be able to handle themselves against lowly rattata or bidoof.

    I am seriously considering attempting to bring this to my group and DM it. However I have a little question regarding trainer's leveling up, specifically pokedex related (capture/seen).

    I was never necessarily the type to go out and "catch em all".. but mostly just focus on a couple key players in my line up (in the games). For any campaign I would run for this game I would want more focus on a unique story rather than the general, "catch em all" type of thing. My idea is for a single, party pokedex.

    Would allowing for a single, party pokedex that records ALL party owned pokemon and seen pokemon for means of trainer levels be imbalanced?.. might the PC's advance too quickly if I was to implement this single party pokedex idea?

    Keep them separate, trust me. Players need a reward for sitting in the audience while their party member quickly battles the Gym Leader. Also, players who don't make it to a session will gain "dexexp" even though they weren't there. The pokedex leveling is not difficult to do either.

    For every 25 seen, 1 level. (It obviously gets harder to gain exp the more pokemon you've pokedexed)

    For every 10 owned, 1 level.

    The second is not really important or used to level. It's just a reward.

    As far as the 'owned' rulings go:
    Catch a pokemon you don't own? Add it.
    Evolve a Pokemon in one you don't own? Add it, and don't erase your pokemon's younger stage.
    Trade a pokemon? Erase it from your list, then add the replacement.
    This prevents "trade-tradeback?" between members of the same party in order to gain levels.

    It's complex in its simplicity. You have 65 points with which you buy D&D stats, 1 stat costs 1 point each and all stats have a minimum of 6.

    You do not choose a class at character creation. Classes are not so much classes as they are package feats.

    >>9304783 make them all crippled, either physically, emotionally or both

    And therein lies the problem, I'm afraid. That's pretty much why at least one guy didn't want to play: he didn't want the accompanying mindfuck that he knew he'd get from AdEva (hats off to the 2-3 other guys who were positively thrilled with the idea).

    That's why if I planned to work that in, it'd be subtle and not as overbearing. I'll leave AdEva and CoC to do the straightforward "You guys suck, and you'll never amount to much, and you'll all die alone" thing.

    What level should it be?
    What class? I'll give it a few pokes as well.

    GLIPP is right. Classes are never mandatory and you must actually pick them up as you go. You start without a class. It's open ended in that sense.

    Good to hear from you by the way, GLIPP.

    During the start of each round, Trainers have their turns first. Refer to a trainer's DEX stat to see which trainers go first.

    During their turn, a trainer can make a Trainer Action, Issue a Command and Shift.
    Trainer Actions are;
    Using a feature.
    Using the Pokedex.
    Using an item.
    Returning/Sending Out a Pokemon.
    Making a Trainer Attack.

    Shifting is moving. Trainer can move 5 meters or 5 spaces per round, adding (or subtracting) DEX modifer.

    Issuing a command is telling your pokemon what to do during that round. If you use a Poke Ball, this counts as your "Issue a Command" for that round. Your pokemon may still Shift but they may not use a Move.

    If you send out a pokemon, that pokemon may not use a Move or Shift that round.

    Speed determines the order that pokemon move during the round after the trainer turns are done.

    During a pokemon's turn (the pokemon you issued a command to), They may use a Move and Shift.

    Moves are what each pokemon have to use as attacks/buffs etc. during their turn.

    Shifting is how much that pokemon can move during the round referring to the pokemon's Speed Capabilities.

    Preemptive strike:
    Always round down unless stated otherwise.

    HP stat:
    Pokemon’s Level + (HP stat x 3)
    As long as the pokemon is above 50% of it’s full HP, an 8 hour rest will recover HP equal to 25% of its Max HP.

    Attack stat:
    Add to Melee, Ranged* damage.

    Defense stat:
    Subtract the Defense stat from Damage from Melee or Ranged* Moves.
    You may add 1 evasion bonus for every 5 points in Defense when targeted by a Physical Move.

    Sp. Attack stat:
    Add to Ranged, Melee* damage.

    Sp. Defense stat:
    Subtract the Sp. Defense stat from Damage from Melee* or Ranged Moves.
    You may add 1 evasion bonus for every 5 points in Sp. Defense when targeted by a Special Move.

    Speed stat:
    Higher speed stat goes first during round. You may add 1 evasion bonus for every 10 points in Speed when targeted by a Move.

    You may only add an evasion bonus once when getting targeted.

    How to add to a pokemon’s Stats:

    Keep the Base Stats in one column on the pokemon’s character sheet. Keep the stats added through level up in another column. Keep their Actual Stats in a third column. The Actual Stats is the sum of the Base Stats and added stats.

    Here is a neutral natured Charmander’s Base Stats. This Charmander is at level 1.
    HP - 4
    ATK - 5
    DEF - 4
    SPATK - 6
    SPDEF - 5
    SPEED - 7

    When a pokemon levels up, you must put a stat point into a stat that won't ruin the Base Relation of a pokemon's base stats. The Base Relation of stats is the order of the stats according to the highest Base Stat of a Pokemon, followed by the seconded highest Base Stat and the next highest Base Stats after that, until you have created a list of the order of a pokemon’s Base Stats from highest to lowest. Ruining the Base Relation means when you add a Stat Point to a stat while leveling up, the Base Relation was changed.

    This Charmander’s Base Relation is:
    Speed, Special Attack, Attack and Special Defense, Hit Points and Defense

    This means you must put a stat point into Charmander's SPEED at level 2. So that the Special Attack of the Charmander does not equal Speed, ruining the Base Relation.

    When it comes to ties in a Pokemon’s Base Relation, you never need to keep those two stats equal. The difference between two stats, tied in the Base Relation, does not matter, as long as the next highest stats in the Base Relation is kept higher then the tied Base Stats and the next lowest stats in the Base Relation is kept lower then the tied Base Stats.

    And that is why I started posting these rules.
    Let’s say at level 4, you added to Charmander’s ATK. This is what its stats now look like:
    HP - 4 + 0 = 4
    ATK - 5 + 1 = 6
    DEF - 4 + 0 = 4
    SPATK – 6 + 1 = 7
    SPDEF - 5 + 0 = 5
    SPEED – 7 + 1 = 8

    At level 5, for example, you may not add to HP or DEF because that will ruin Base Relation. It would tie with ATK.

    Here is that Charmander at level 20, when spreading its stats evenly.
    HP - 4 + 3 = 7
    ATK - 5 + 3 = 8
    DEF - 4 + 3 = 7
    SPATK - 6 + 3 = 9
    SPDEF - 5 + 3 = 8
    SPEED - 7 + 4 = 11
    Notice that the Stat points that are being added are almost all equal per different Stat when choosing to evenly distribute Stats.

    Here is that same Charmander when its trainer is raising its prominent stats.
    HP - 4 + 0 = 4
    ATK - 5 + 0 = 5
    DEF - 4 + 0 = 4
    SPATK - 6 + 9 = 15
    SPDEF - 5 + 0 =5
    SPEED - 7 + 10 = 17
    The Base Relation of the Base Stats is maintained here. You do not need to add stats evenly as long as the Base Stats’ Base Relation is kept.

    Here is that same Charmander when its trainer is trying to make it hit harder with Melee
    HP - 4 + 0 = 4
    ATK – 5 + 6 = 11
    DEF - 4 + 0 = 4
    SPATK - 6 + 6 = 12
    SPDEF - 5 + 0 = 5
    SPEED - 7 + 7 = 14

    This can be frustrating when you want a Charmander who is a Melee sweeper. This is where Natures come in to play.

    A Brave, which adds ATK and takes SPEED, natured Charmander instead would have these base stats:
    HP - 4
    ATK - 7 (Instead of 5)
    DEF - 4
    SPATK - 6
    SPDEF - 5
    SPEED - 5 (Instead of 7)

    A Nature will add two to a Base Stat and subtract two to another Base Stat, making a completely different Base Relation in many cases. Now you can focus more on this Charmander's ATK without even worrying about increasing its SPEED.

    Look at this Brave Charmander, now at level 20.
    HP - 4 + 0 = 4
    ATK - 7 + 10 = 17
    DEF - 4 + 0 = 4
    SPATK - 6 + 5 = 11
    SPDEF - 5 + 0 = 5
    SPEED - 5 + 5 =10
    This Charmander can now potentially be a sweeper with its superior ATK and SP.ATK, plus with some SPEED it gains evasion bonuses. Though, due to its lower other stats, if this Charmander fails to defeat an opponent it is likely to be swept itself.

    What does mean?
    Nature matters. The nature determines what kind of build you can have without the use of vitamins.
    Vitamins (Carbos, Iron, Hp Up, etc.) may be used up to 5 times per pokemon and add to a pokemon's Base Stats, allowing you to modify your pokemon's Base Relation.

    How long did it fucking take to figure this out?

    Is it balanced/well playtested?

    How do you normally handle natures? Do you let your players choose them or random generate them? How about on starter pokemon?

    How does evolution change Base Relation? Do you use the new order of the base stats? Do you get stat bonuses?

    >How long
    Very long
    now it is

    Natures are randomly generated for wilds. I let my players choose their starter's natures as well as any pokemon they brought along with the to pick out their starter.

    Oh shit, I'm actually here to see one of these threads. Have the folks over in #pokeymans already hammered out the game or is there still room for a player who has yet to even glance at the rulebook?

    Wait, are you not doing two stats per level anymore?

    during evolution, you restat your pokemon, with its new base relation you get to reallocate stats wherever you'd like.

    There's at least 2 separate groups already.
    Feel free to join the channel to see if anybody else is up to DMing a third group

    Why is my trip code disappearing?
    I am not. With the new Final system, Base Relations, no longer Spacing (outdated about 5 months ago), so it's just one level. Less numbers, faster outcomes of battle.

    Potentially? I suppose. I'd think guns were never really invented though, with the poke ball and all. It's cheaper and more efficient to train a pokemon to flamethrower someone then to buy guns/bullets/etc, even before the Poke Ball.

    Even formal militaries would probably use pokemon before putting soldiers on the line with weapons.

    Also, pokemon are smart. They would figure out what guns were and do picture related.

    Lt. Surge was in wars, man, and there's no mention of him using a gun. I think he just held his raichu out like a gun and zapped people instead. Also voltorb grenades.

    If someone could Archive this, it'd be a great help for people who are picking up this game. I'm heading off right now though.

    I'll try to be around tomorrow to help with those who need it in starting up campaigns.

    I wish the best of luck to those starting already, even though it's still alpha.

    Goodnight /tg/.
