You later discover that your brother and all the other trainers have been brainwashed into becoming part of a aboriginal movement that plans to capture a legendary Pokemon (still not invented), considered a deity among the aboriginals, that will eliminate modern society and return the region (name not created) to a simpler time without technology.
I would just make it a cult. Aboriginals as the villains would definitely come off as racist. Also, maybe up the ages a little bit. Otherwise it's not bad.

Along with these missions, there are going to be story missions that has to do with catching a group of Pokemon poachers. Also, instead of getting your Pokemon from some Professor, you get it from your father who is also a Tracker. You get to choose from at least 10 starter Pokemon. There are NO gyms or Elite 4 because personally the whole "Become the Pokemon champion" storyline has become quite cliche`. Please critique and give suggestions.
I like the abandonment of the gyms and elite four, but how would you make up for the level limitations? also, it would require a huge amount of scripting to completely change the game's development. Not that it's impossible, but it wouldn't be easy. I like the wanted poster idea, but how would it work wild level wise? If you choose the bounty, then you'd have to have a way to adjust the levels as you progress. Otherwise, it's be linear with the bounties being story elements, in which case how would you tie them into the plot? I'd stick with the general idea, but it's going to need some fleshing out.
