    So I have two ideas, and one involves something people might call a ‘fetish’ (though I don’t consider it to be one.)

      Hey! I originally come from another forum to write fanfics and I am trying to get back into it. So if my questions are familiar, that's why. Plus I have others I haven't asked.

      So um years ago there was this fic I saw called Max's New Adventures to where Max goes on his journey and I thought it was a cool fic. At first it sparked the idea of Jupiter going on a journey after leaving Team Galactic but that failed. Now reeading it, plus watching the DP and unova anime episodes, it kinda sparked an idea of Paul going on a journey to Unova to compete in the Unova league plus trying to defeat his rival, Trip (yes that Trip lol) plus has run ins with Team Plasma (aka Team Pathetic as he calls them)

      However I'm not working with a newbie trainer like say... Max, so how can I go about this?

      Thanks :)

      Can you explain your two ideas a bit more, and why which one you think one of your ideas would considered that?

          Basically one is a Choose Your Own Adventure thing where people vote on what happens next
          Other is a transformation-based story

            If it puts your mind at ease, the Pokemon fandom has written a lot of transformation-based stories. The genre is (was?) known as Pokémorphs, where people are turned into Pokemon to varying degrees of success. I don't know how popular those stories are now, since it seems like authors tend to drift more to Mystery Dungeon for that. But I'm just saying that transformation-based stories aren't going to be looked down upon just because they deal with transformation.

            What are your ideas about? So you want to write a transformation-based story. Who are the characters? What's the problem they'll be going through? What are you going to be exploring in this story?

              So basically I need to figure out a few things but the basic plot is an Eevee somehow evolves it’s trainer into an evolution of it

              I'm confused what you meant by that? You mean the trainer transforming into one of Eevee's evolutions?

              As for your Choose your Adventure idea, can you give more details about it? I know before there were a few of those fics popped up here.

              Hi there! You mentioned wanting this thread be moved here, which is totally fine!

              As for your idea, Trip and Paul interacting does sound like a very fun idea. I take you worried about Paul streamrolling the beginning gyms with him being an experienced trainer? I can see Paul getting ahead of himself and a few of the Unova gym leaders giving him a hard time. I think the premise you have here sounds fun, just make sure you have Paul' characterization developed naturally.

                In this idea most of the characters give Paul a hard time, even Colress ;p

                Anyway my original idea was that Paul travels to Unova to enter the unova league and meets a girl who helps him through the process, however, because of her free spirit personality and that she doesn’t most things seriously, he had no interest in communicating with her. That and because she thought he was a rookie trainer due to him having no unova badges. However after overhearing that this annoying trainer was a battle tower boss trainer from Black City and the leader of her local battle club, he quietly follows her to watch her battles.

                Of course he runs in with Team Plasma, like I kinda wanted to pull some events from the game like Ghestis trying to control Kyurem again and freezing half of Unova in which the cast tries to stop him in which Paul and Ghestis have a battle.

                I guess one question I have in my mind is, is it reasonable for a character to catch a legendary Pokemon? Like in the middle I had the idea that Paul would capture either a Cobalion or a Terrkion but I'm not sure if that's reasonable. Please help ><;

                    Forgive me for only focusing on this part of your posts, but my mind isn't working that great right now. To answer that question, since you're working in the canon of the anime, I don't think you can get away with Paul catching a legendary Pokemon. The anime treats legendary Pokemon like they're big deals. They have so much power, and treating them like regular Pokemon can be terrible for the world. All the times I can think of where legendary Pokemon were captured for one reason or another were all times where the world was nearly destroyed.

                    You can have Cobalion or Terrakion working alongside Paul if their goals align. But actually having Paul capture them in Pokeballs and using them wouldn't work that well in the anime canon.

                    With the CYOA story, you can check out the only one that I've seen that was really successful. Seeing how Cutlerine handled it can give you some idea of how your thread can go, and how you can handle the different ways readers can take your story.

                      Okay, and also. Ash really needs to get a legendary to hold the audience. This could be just a UB and that would be fine, but just please have him catch the legend.

                        Off topic, that fic was good!

                        On topic: I am also working with the game world as well so I am kinda mixing them together. Which is why I asked.

                          Hello!

                          I've very recently come up with this idea for a fic. I'm down with a first chapter, and specifics on where exactly I want my plot to go in the next few chapters or so. My major issue so far is naming the story - and why is this? Well, I don't know exactly what the story's main focus will be. These are my two options:
                          1. thorough exploration of the Pokémon science which deals with gifting humans with the ability to use Pokémon moves via experimentation
                          2. part of Lysandre's life, up until x/y game plot or near it

                          Actually, any additional suggestions are welcome.

                          If I choose to go with option 2, I'm certain that the title of the story will be A Beautiful World, or something along those lines. Any feedback on the subject would be highly appreciate, as I hope to post the first chapter as soon as possible, with a finalised title and an idea of where my story will continue once Lysandre's laboratory era is up.

                          [For a basic summary, open spoiler.]
                          Spoiler:
                          Prior to his rise to fame, Lysandre worked as a lab assistant in a berry laboratory in Jubilife City. This research facility, known as Genetic Engineering Laboratory of Sinnoh, specializes in genetically modifying berries to produce improved berry crops. In an underground floor of the lab’s facility, research of genetic engineering of Pokémon is effectuated in secret, a project aiming to obtain enough data to decode Pokémon genetics related to battle moves and manipulate them. When Lysandre is exposed to the existence of the hidden facility, he is deeply infatuated and invests much of his time into researching more and more, although his research partner Kaien’s interest in the project starts to decline after several failed attempts to further their research. Eventually, la di da di da [plot points I ought not to share at this point]

                          Hm, after checking your summary sounds like Lysandre will still be the main focus of the story, so I would definitely go "A Beautiful World" there! Only thing is maybe someone might take that title for a Lysandre fic, but then again "A Beautiful World" fits him very well.

                          Spoiler:
                          One quick musing I want to say is how come Lysandre gets entangled in an experiment with Pokemon moves? Would that relate to Mega Evolution? If this question is one of the plot points you don't want to reveal, then I understand.

                            Agreed with that. It is likely that I will not go with that title after all. Anyhow, thank you for the advice! It was much needed and I'm glad for it :^

                            Since this occurs ten years or so before canon Lysandre is introduced, I would think that he is not yet aware of mega evolution (if I do choose to make this fic about his life as you suggested, he would eventually meet professor Sychamore, who would expose him to it? I feel like that makes sense, as far as game canon goes.) The reason Lysandre would get involved in anything would be for his ideals, I would think.
                            Since his canon ideals are the perfect preservation of nature, he would have to experience something that will change the way he wishes to manifest his ideal, hence something would have to go horribly wrong in his experimentation in the story >:)
