Just an update on my status. I'm not technically leaving. I'm just not going to be in the rp center for a good 6 months. The reason has more to do with my past which will affect my future. I'll tell people in more detail if they so desire to know why I am leaving and why it links to my past and future.

Lawl that sounds just like the Homestuck/Pokémon crossover I've been trying to think up for a while now. Only, I gave up.

EDIT: oh. 5 more posts and I've made 7000 posts on PC. That's, um, a lot.

Quitter!
Lol, iz kool, iz kool.

I had finished doing my Biology test a half hour early so I started writing up a sort of prologue to it then. I don't really feel like typing it up this very second, but let's just say it involves a king that outlawed magic and went execution happy in what people know as the Purge. That was 150 years ago.
Now, I think the roleplayers might either be citizens of this world, or maybe they'd be characters from our world that, for some reason, got dragged into this world. I think I like the latter. It might also involve some memory loss for the roleplayers. depending on what I feel like. ^-^'

The second roleplay I was working on, the Arena-styled one that I already mentioned, hasn't progressed too much. I did narrow down the worlds that I was thinking of drawing characters from. Now they're all from fighting games, excluding a few bonus characters like (possibly) Link, Ratchet, Jak, and maybe some cool guy like Ezio Auditore.
The fighting games I looked up were Guilty Gear, Bloody Roar, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Dead or Alive, Virtua Fighter, Tekken and Soul Calibur.

The third one is The Lost Islands League 2.0 and you either know about that one or you don't. ;P

That would be me who is the human. This RP will definitely be...interesting.

Well, it looks like we've got all sorts of new things to bring to the RP Corner!

So, here are my questions:

1.
What are your initial impressions on this big news?

2.
How do you think this news will relate to Roleplays?

3.
How long do you think it will be before these new Pokemon/features will be applied to our roleplays?

4.
Is anyone else anticipating this new update coming to our RP forums?
1. I say they're running out of idea's for Pokemon Species. I mean, they have a Trubbish, which is from trash.

2. Many new Pokemon & RP ideas will be introduced, including the new legendry Pokemon.

3. Maybe before or after October of its release date.

4. Not until August.

In terms of roleplays and the new Pokemon games released, I personally think that we should wait for more information to come out later in the year...before we start implementing that information to a roleplay. Honestly, that would be awesome, but all we know is the starters, and the names of the game. xD Like ShinyDiamond said, after October would be alright.

I wouldn't say an "update" per se, but at least something new is coming. :P

I won't be updating my roleplays until pokemon are at least released in Japan, personally. However, I'd be open to the idea of people trying to use pokemon they barely know anything about if they can do it in an appropriate manner, I guess. <.<

The English games aren't coming out until almost 2014, so.

Hun, it's a Worldwide release, so we English folks will probably get information at the same time as the Japanese folks.

So long as the English names are known, and perhaps a full evolution line and maybe a basic moveset, then I think it's perfectly fine to have the pokemon. Even so, you could just prevent them from evolving until their evolution lines are revealed. In that case, it actually gives the roleplayer a sense of anticipation and surprise when they can evolve their pokemon later.

I just kind of fell in love with Fennikin and I'm beginning to like Froakie. So . . . yeah, lol.

I thought it was slated for a worldwide release this time around; October 2013.

Anyways, it would probably be very inappropriate to try using the new Pokémon in a roleplay when we don't even know what they are. Hell, all we've got are the starters' first stage names and their appearances, alongside the looks of the legendary pair.

Looks like I deleted my post for nothing -.-

It said the same thing, anyway, it is indeed coming to the West in October 2013, around the same time as the Japanese versions.

Though I guess I'd feel that it'd be best to at least wait until we have pokedex entries. I mean, it really depends on the RP, but I feel that the best way to emulate a pokemon through one's words is to know them, and the pokedex entries are the first step towards understanding them. I mean, I could see one going along with just the name, appearance, and the moves and it working out fine, but I'd think that having some understanding of the pokemon as a pokemon rather than simply a pokemon as an addition to a game would be the optimal choice for roleplaying.

Yeah. October. That's like... 3/4th of the way through 2013. So it'll be quite a while. I'd be willing to let people play them as soon as the Japanese games release though (Because we'll doubtlessly get movelists and whatnot by then.

I'm eager to see how this will effect Pokemon Fallout's plot. BW2 really didn't change anything, but maybe Gen 6 will introduce a problem or two in need of dealing with.

We're talking about the newest starters here. Does anyone having a thought on what some of the new Pokemon might look like? In Generation V, they introduced new Pokemon without new evolutions for previous Pokemon. I'm wondering if in Generation VI, they'll introduce some new evolutions for previous 2nd stage Pokemon, especially new evolutions for Eevee.

I've said it earlier, but I've got an idea in my mind for what I can guarantee will be an excellent Roleplay. However, until I'm in a better situation with my free time, I'll be holding onto it (and brainstorming further). Meanwhile, I'll continue to give out hints as to what it may be about, most often in the form of quotes. Enjoy~

“Saint Anthony said, in his solitude, he sometimes encountered devils who looked like angels, and other times he found angels who looked like devils. When asked how he could tell the difference, the saint said that you can only tell which is which by the way you feel after the creature has left your company.”

Hun, it's a WORLDWIDE release.

The Japanese games will likely come out the same day as the English games. :>

OKAYOKAYOKAY. I'ma type up the basis for that magical roleplay I was thinking of earlier, and maybe a prologue to the arena roleplay . . . and perhaps even a prologue to LIL 2.0. Hopefully, by the end of the month I'll have at least one of these roleplays up, lol.

Worldwide as in = everyone in the world is going to get it (unless otherwise noted)

Throwing in a topic here if anyone doesn't mind! How long does it take you to create your own characters?

I thought of that while I was working on my SU for CLOUD. Took me a day to think of how my DAEMON will look like, till I drew the conclusion that it'll be based off a giant ferret. lol

But typically it takes me from a few hours till the whole reservation period (depending on what roleplay it is) to think of an awesome character.

Are we talking about just thinking of the character or writing the sign-up?

If it's just creating the character, then I think of mine almost instantly. Granted, many of the characters will be edited from this raw form, but there are also those that remain the same. And, yes, I do mean instantly. It takes me about thirty seconds to envision a new character. It might take me a few minutes to add in all of the detail, though.

If we're talking about writing a sign-up, then it could be anywhere from a few minutes, to a few hours, to a few days. @_@

For me i guess it depends on the RP. It takes me atleast 2/3 hours to make an RP, but sometimes it can take me a whole day since i spend most time at searching around for a decent appearence. Also, i normally read my SU's atleast two times before i post it to make sure i have whiped out all the grammar mistakes i might have made.

I do almost everything on my phone, so that could also be a reason that it takes me lots of time to make a decent SU, also... i like perfectionating my SU's hehehehe...

Just thought it be worth mentioning that I'm coming back. I'm back because the goal i wanted to achieve I simply couldn't and will not happen within the time i gave myself so naturally I come back to where I hopefully belong and that is here. I will need tons of help to truly get started RPing for realz. But most importantly I will be back here for good.

At least a day or two...or up to five. I always make my SU on my phone, so it lags when more characters are typed. When driven to, I'd settle on my laptop & finish my SU there. There's a drawback: when I make an SU on my laptop, I tend to add too much than I needed to.

I usually know right away what my character's personality is going to be, though looks, history, and name usually take me extra time. Usually, it'll take me an hour or more to make an SU, though sometimes it takes a day or two.

My characters are created anywhere from in under a second to a couple of minutes. I think up a very basic concept such as "Psychotic ghost-type trainer" or "Dragon-type trainer that's never good enough and has major social issues that drag their life down."

It takes a /lot/ longer for me to actually flesh out characters however~

While I'm releasing tidbits of information on my secret RP, I thought maybe telling you all the title might also bring further interest (if any):

Heh... Never played it before and don't really have the intention to now.

Of course, but this may be the first one I've come up with that's actually original, as opposed to an RP based on a game or show. In fact, I'm internally thrilled about my idea, and I have brainstormed on it for quite some time already. Once I've gotten a better availability here, I'll be working on it with haste. Until then, though, I'll just keep releasing hints.

So I was looking through my Private Messages yesterday and realized that I started remaking the roleplay that I am currently working on two years ago.
Oh my, I should post it soon.
And I might hunt for a co-GM soon. After I finish some things, though.
