Hi Kitred, yep that's fine
I'm going to make some changes to the organisation of this rp...nothing major, but seeing as I'm GM now I think there are easier ways that this can be organised...more details to follow..
Okay! Here are the new rules and guidelines! I'm going to hide Kanto and Johto under spoilers so everyone can look at only that which affects them, but general rules and guidelines wll be for consumption by us all. The biggest change is that you won't need to ask me about catching pokemon/facing gym leaders/key items. These will all be laid out in the below guidelines, kind of like in the games. If there is anything special you want to happen in the RP, though, or something I've missed that you'd like to see just post a request in the OOC as usual and I'll sort it. This is just a hell of a lot easier to stop you guys from requesting, and having to wait for me to get round to responding as I'm fairly busy at the moment with Uni just starting up again and work and dance so I mainly check/reply on my phone on the Tube, which is not conducive to making huge detailed posts.
If you want to catch a wild Pokemon - go for it. I trust you all enough to make the choices for yourself over what is reasonable and what isn't. So for example, I know that you guys won't battle a level 70 Articuno in Route 5 with a level 4 Rattata and catch it with your first PokeBall. I think we're all more sensical than that, so within reason you can decide which Pokemon appear where and when:
Pokemon up to level 30:
I would also like to request that players update their Pokemon team in the OOC thread after every capture/Pokemon evolution. Please include Pokemon Levels and Movesets in these updates. Each Pokemon can learn 6 moves, but keep these in line with the levelling up move learning. If you can illustrate how you can afford a TM, 2 TM moves per Pokemon are allowed. HM moves are also allowed, unlimited.
In terms of HM moves, your Pokemon doesn't need to know Fly to fly to a different town outside of battle, and same with all the other HMs. I've always found that slightly ridiculous about the games but see how it is necessary. If your Pokemon does, however, want to use the move in battle then they will need to have the HM move taught. These HMs will be given out after a gym battle, so you don't need to go looking in random places to find them:
Hope that all makes sense so far...that's all I can think of for the time being, the rest we can work out on a take-it-as-it-comes kind of basis.
Okay guys, thanks for your patience with me!
