      You also could have asked me, Denny. They're outside (Whoever Valorie's teacher is)'s classroom, pretty much on and beside a table on the end of the hallway.

        Uh... no. I can't approve this.


        A second problem: I'm not willing to approve a 'talking' lucario. Even if you meant to imply telepathy, telepathic lucarios have been played drier than the hottest desert. I feel the need to put a foot down and say "No more. This is out of control."



        @ShinyDiamond: What WolfOfEve said. Valorie and Kiyoko are in the academy hallways. Find your way to them at your own freedom. Be warned I'm not exactly posting every day right now.

          I've always wondered about talking pokemon. Is Meowth of Team Rocket the only one with actual genuine speech (all the others using forms of telepathy etc.)? They go to quite a bit of trouble to point out every episode just how unusual this is. Are there any other examples?

            Fair warning, Marin prefers Game Canon over Anime Canon.

            Talking Pokemon is sort of... Impossible. There are some instances, like telepathy, where Pokemon can speak through others' minds.

            Aaron's Lucario is one of those few Lucario who know how.

            As for just plain speaking it, no.

            @Lincoln: In the anime, meowth is the only pokemon with genuine ability to talk yes. Even his clone can't talk. Apparently Meowth tried so hard to learn that his sheer effort overwrote reality, or something.

            The games officially specified which pokemon can learn telepathy in generation 5 by introducing it as an actual ability. They're all psychic types. I've just grown... increasingly frustrated with talking lucario, as Aaron's was in fact supposed to be unique just like Meowth. There is not supposed to be any other lucario that knows telepathy. We've got at least a quarter of a dozen pokemon playing that card, perhaps more like half a dozen.

            What's more, even if one were to go beyond game standards, having telepathy alone doesn't imply that the pokemon is able to interact with humans, in the instances that it is shown, the pokemon have knowledge of human speech before humans can actually understand them.

              May I weigh in? I think the ability doesn't define enough pokemon that can understand humans, and relate their thoughts back. For example look at Ralts. It can't talk to a human, but its skills with empathy let it know just how it needs to act to make their trainer happy. whether it does or not is a different story.

              So certain pokemon and certain legendaries have full telepathy, and can communicate both ways (allowing the human to telepath back for some). Some just read minds cause they can like abra. Others just can talk somehow. Not common pokemon like meowth, but the odd one or two can.

              Yellow & Wolf: Ruby has interacted with Kilik, so he'll meet up with you two later.

              Wolf, you recall that Kilik only knows Kiyoko in his human form, right?

                I do seem to recall the anime stating that Meowth worked so hard to learn speech it's kind of... filled his brain to capacity, so he can't learn any pokemon moves beyond the ones he knew when he started. I think Fury Swipes is the only one - and even then it may not be a move. It may just be Meowth going crazy with his claws.

                Does the same rule apply for humans who can understand pokemon? It seems like we have a few of those wandering around PTA, and to my knowledge N is supposed to be the only one with this ability.

                I'm not singling anyone out, just learning! Cheers for all the responses guys.

                  @SD - actually... i hoped Ruby and Hikari could come along ;;; is that a problem...?

                  @Lincoln- i guess you are talking about Ruby...? ;; i'm sorry if she bothers you, though, theres a reason behind this ability which i wont spoil just yet… dont worry… i wont overdo it with her, she wont be one of these "over-powered" characters

                  Uhmm… i see alot of other people have problems with my characters…

                    I couldn't remember whose characters I'd seen with the ability, but sure, I guess Ruby was one of them. I in no way have a problem with anyone having this ability, all I'm trying to ascertain is how common/uncommon it is - primarily so I can have my characters react appropriately.

                    If this is something that, so far as we know, only N has done, then I know to have Nika/Lincoln react as if this is the case. If on the other hand it is very rare, but a few others have done it, then... well you get the idea.

                        Good lord, PTA needs a "Kiyoko Fan Club". I had forgotten how much people had obsessed over him.

                          I only got involved with that zoura way early in his appearance. Isaac helped resesitate him when he washed ashore.

                          Besides that haven;t been involved, so why do did you ask me Diamond?

                                sorry. I'm on a couple of forums so I've gone by multiple nicknames for Jasonwolf.

                                @WolfOfEve: Luckily I was around to remind you, right?~

                                @PinkSapphire: This discussion arose because of an issue in a Sign-Up. Nobody even mentioned your characters. Also if I seem to recall, your character's pokemon don't use telepathy. Your character understands their Pokemon's natural speech instead, which is actually much different and not currently an issue. Also, I'm pretty sure Fuyu's character Skye has the bragging rights to being the first character with that power.

                                @Everyone: But yeah. I think I need to put a cap on "Non-psychic pokemon that can speak to humans" for the sake of suspension of disbelief and making sure the standards of character quality aren't undercut. I will not however be putting a cap on "Humans that can understand Pokemon.". So yeah. That means no new characters will be allowed to utilize that...power.

                                Quite simply the latter isn't done as much and doesn't result in Pokemon parading around acting like they're just like humans. (Because nobody else would understand them!)

                                Anyway...

                                  Now Valorie is going to have all that attention as well.


                                  Also, I thought of something I'd like to make a point of.

                                  Let's use the Anime's Meowth as an example.

                                  There are real-life cases where some animals, if taught well enough, can in fact learn English. It's possible, but would take a lot of nonstop training and the Pokemon has to be very, very willing to learn.

                                  Thoughts on this?

                                    animals seem to be able to learn our language, but re-iterating it is the hard half. its like a person learning how to do different voice. I for example can go from normal to Igor to a chipmunk without an issue, but I've been practicing to get a variety of voices. A pokemon that is used to having a specific voice and speaking one way for all its life would take a ton of time to learn english, and meowth did.
