The year is 2032, 16 years after the release of Pokemon GO all the way back in 2016. Though the original Pokemon GO was primitive, being a simple program that caught Pokemon based on your geographical location through an AR display, it caught on like wildfire. Soon nearly everyone in the world was playing Pokemon GO, kids and adults alike. There’s even an official global Pokemon league, with regional sub-leagues scattered about. Last year, the Pokemon Company announced Pokemon GO Neon, a more advanced form of Pokemon GO, said to be much more detailed, with each Pokemon possessing an individual personality AI. As it happens, your hometown has been chosen as the prelaunch test site of Pokemon GO Neon, featuring the first generation of Pokemon. As it happens, today is the day the test begins! You are 10 years old, and your true pokemon journey begins now!But first… Oh dearie me, I seem to have misplaced my glasses. Are you a Boy, or a Girl?>Boy>Girl
>>42509207>>BoyIs the password for the Pokemon GO Neon test "Re-Digitize?"
Ah, a Boy! I see! Now, what is your name?>>42509546In this timeline, Bandai went bankrupt years ago.
>>42509605>In this timeline, Bandai went bankrupt years ago.Impossible, Gunpla sales alone can keep them afloat.
Your name is Ross? Of course, Ross Green, the son of my associate in the Pokemon GO Neon Project! Now it says here that someone else your age signed up for the project on your recommendation. What was her name again?>>42509656Everyone started playing Pokemon GO, so Gunpla sales dropped. However, the Pokemon Company quickly filled the gap with Pokemon themed mech kits.
>>42509782>>42509793Abilene Victoria Geller, if you want a full name.
>>42509793Abby! Now I remember! She seemed to be a rather curious child, to say the least! Well, grab your gear and head on down to the lab and we can get started!You terminate your video call with Professor Eucalyptus, don your jacket and hat, and proceed to your Pokemon GO Neon starter kit. Inside is a pair of gloves and goggles, along with what looks to be a small personal computer the size of a phone, labeled Pokedex. You slip on the feedback gloves and pull the goggles around your neck. Rushing out of your room, you yell goodbye to your mother as your zoom past her and out the door. You live in the suburbs of a moderately large town, the only particularly large structure to be found being the skyscraper that belongs to the Pokemon Company. You head in that direction, seeing as the Pokemon AI Lab is on one of the lower floors of the building.As you round a corner, you bump into Abby, and are sent sprawling. "Hey, watch where you're going, dork!" She cries, as she steadies herself on the nearby wall.>"You watch it!">"Well gee, I'm sorry your highness!">"Ah, sorry, that was my fault. I'll be more careful next time.">Write-In
>>42510090>>"Well gee, I'm sorry your highness!">>"Ah, sorry, that was my fault. I'll be more careful next time."
>>42510090>"Well gee, I'm sorry your highness!"
"Well gee, I'm sorry your highness!" You reply sarcastically. "I didn't know you'd be walking among us mere common folk today." Abby seems to take it in her stride, simply turning on her heel and heading in the direction of the Skyscraper. "You're going to be late for the opening of Pokemon Go Neon, Ross. You should hurry along." With that, she departs, leaving you to pick yourself up from the ground and dust yourself off. Abby never really fitted in at school, coming from a rich foreign family who moved to this town only last year, she preferred to sit by herself and fiddle with her phone rather than make friends like the rest of you. Anyone who tried to approach her was put off by her snobby and superior attitude. You shake your head and put an end to your musings about Abby, there's no time to waste when there's Pokemon involved!Finally, you arrive at the Skyscraper and take the lift up to Floor 3, the AI Lab. Professor Eucalyptus is there to greet you, and he brings you further into the lab. "It is so good to see you, Ross! Remember how I said I misplaced my glasses? Well it turns out they were in their case all along! Now anyway, today is the day you get to choose your very own Starter Pokemon! Isn't that exciting?" When Professor Eucalyptus pauses to take a breath, you seize your chance to get a word in. "Where is everyone else? Shouldn't the other trainers have shown up?" Professor Eucalyptus puts his hand on your shoulder and sighs as you ask your question. "Well you see, you're a little late, Ross. Everyone else has already received their Starter Pokemon. We only have 3 left.">"What? But that's not fair!">"Fine, what are my Choices?">"Which Pokemon did Abby pick?">Write-In
>>42510415>>"Fine, what are my Choices?">>"Which Pokemon did Abby pick?"
>>42510415>"Fine, what are my Choices?">"Which Pokemon did Abby pick?"
>>42510415>>"Fine, what are my Choices?"
>>42510522you have a quest to be running get out of here
You inquire about your three choices and Professor Eucalyptus leads you over to a table. If you were looking at it normally, you know it would be empty, but with your AR Goggles, you can clearly see the three Pokeballs resting atop it. "We only programmed one of each Pokemon, so these are the ones that the other kids left over after they picked theirs. Sorry about that Ross." You walk over to the table, admiring the Pokeballs. You know they don't exist in the real world, but they look like they're really there. With your gloves, you could even reach out and touch them. "What did Abby pick?" You ask Professor Eucalyptus as you circle the table. 'Well honestly, I'm not quite sure. I think it was a water type, but I don't know anything more than that. Your Dad was supervising the first wave, he ought to know the specifics. Nevertheless, you've got 3 choices left for you. Try tapping the Pokeballs." You reach out with your gloved hand and tap the Pokeball on the left, and an AR pop-up appears, displaying an image of what you recognize to be a Rattatta. Tapping the middle pokeball brings up a picture of a Spearow, and the right ball shows a Weedle. You look at Professor Eucalyptus with a look of incredulity. "Sorry Ross, but that's the only three left. It would take days to program another Starter, They're more complicated than Wild Pokemon." Sighing, you reach out and grab...>The Left Pokeball>The Middle Pokeball>The Right Pokeball
>>42510675>The Middle Pokeball
>>42510675>The Middle PokeballGod these are all shit choices
>>42510675>The Right Pokeball
>>42510675How about a come back in a few days option? Because holy shit these suck.
>>42510766Without a starter you won't be able to catch wild pokemon. You'd be days behind the other trainers in strength.To be fair, every basic stage pokemon that isn't a legendary is present, so one of those kids chose a Magickarp.
>>42510758>>42510847>>42510727why do you guys want the worst possible choice
>>42510675>>The Middle PokeballSpearow is awesome.
>>42510906Get out early with a beedrill, rape face with poison, collect better mons fast.
Look all I want is a Growlithe Can we work that in the schedule?
It seems there is currently a tie on your choice.I'm gonna need it broken.
>>42511198Roll it with a d2 otherwise weedle.
...The Pokeball on the right, containing Weedle.. You hear that Bug Types evolve faster, maybe that could work to your advantage. "It's not much, but I'll take it." With a flick of your wrist, you toss the pokeball into your inventory screen, where it settles into one of your six party slots. Professor Eucalyptus claps his hands and leads you back towards the elevator. "Weedle is an excellent choice Ross, I'm sure you two will have plenty of fun together. Now head out and catch some Pokemon!" You take the elevator back down to the ground floor and exit the building, clueless as to what you should do now. You shrug and decide to head off back in the direction of your house. Halfway there, you realize that the Professor forgot to give you your starting pokeballs! Without those, you won't be able to catch any wild pokemon! As you turn around to head back and ask him, you see Abby staring you down."Alright Dork. You. Me. Battle." She withdraws a pokeball from her inventory and tosses it up and down a few times. "Or are you scared of losing?">”Alright, lets battle!”>”Sorry, I need to get back to the Lab”>”I got a reject as my Starter Pokemon, you don’t want to battle me.”>Write-In
>>42511281>”Alright, lets battle!”
>>42511281>”Alright, lets battle!”Can't wait for her to laugh at us then go into a shocked state when we somehow win
>>42511281>>”Alright, lets battle!”
>>42511236>Shutting on Based Growlithe and Arcanine Eat shit >>42511281>"Sure meet me tomorrow at dawn."By which I mean blow her off and make her look like the dork
"Alright, let's battle!" You call out, as you withdraw Weedle's pokeball from your inventory. The two of you throw your pokeballs towards the ground in front of you, and watch as they bounce off, releasing the pokemon from within. Your Low Level Weedle stands firm, if standing is even the right way to describe it. Maybe it's your imagination, but it seems as though your Weedle has a determined expression on his face. Across from Weedle, you finally get to see the pokemon Abby chose, Shellder. "Shelly, Tackle!" Abby yells as she points at Weedle. The Shellder, despite not having any legs, charges towards Weedle and knocks him aside. You note that the health bar above Weedle is low. An info bubble pops up, letting you know that Weedle has two moves, String Shot and Poison Sting. Abby looks ready to shout out another command, you'd better interrupt her with one of your own.>"String Shot!">"Poison Sting!"
>>42511281ALRIGHT LET'S BATTLE BITCH
>>42511545Poison sting.We can deal initial damage and possibly status effect.
"Poison Sting!" Weedle gets the message, and fires off a poison sting that scrapes the Shellder's shell. "Tackle again, Shelly!" Abby commands with a sweep of her arm. As the Shellder charges once again, Weedle rolls to the side, evading the attack. Then he launches another Poison Sting. That's odd, you didn't tell him to use Poison Sting again. Perhaps these battles aren't like in the games. This time, the Poison Sting not only strikes true, but poisons the Shellder. You prepare to follow it up with another Poison Sting, but Abby holds out her hands. "Stop!" She withdraws Shellder and turns to leave. "Let's call it a draw, okay?" She says stiffly.>"You can't just walk away!">"Sure, whatever">"Looks like you were the one scared of losing.">Write-In
>>42511749>"You can't just walk away!"
>>42511749>"Sure, whatever. I gotta get my pokeballs anyways.
>>42511749>>"Sure, whatever">>"Looks like you were the one scared of losing."
>>42511749Continue the assault! Let her know the true power of the dark side!
"Sure, whatever. I guess you turned out to be the one afraid of losing." She freezes in place and starts sputtering, seemingly unable to form a coherent sentence. You walk past her and head off towards the Skyscraper. After a short walk, you arrive and take the lift back up to the AI Lab. Professor Eucalyptus is there to greet you, and brings you into the lab. "I'm so sorry, Ross. Giving you your Pokeballs completely slipped my mind! Here, take these five." He claps his gloved hands together and creates a pile of five Pokeballs, proceeding to toss them into your inventory screen. "So, been challenged to any battles yet?" He asks. 'Well I did get into a battle with Abby, but she withdrew her pokemon before it ended, so I didn't get any experience or anything." Professor Eucalyptus frowns at this, and walks over to a nearby computer. After he types in several lines of text, you receive a popup saying that your Weedle just gained some experience. "Thanks for notifying me about this Ross, that was definitely a bug with the Forfeit System. Please report anything like that to me our your Dad right away. By the way, I see you haven't named your Weedle yet. Are you going to?">Name Weedle.>"No."

"Vitriol, or Vit for short.” Professor Eucalyptus seems delighted by the name, clapping his hands together and smiling. “Well, I think you ought to be getting home. Your mother expected you back by Noon, I believe." He sends you on your way, and once again you exit the building, now with the means to catch wild Pokemon. As you pass by your local park on your way home, your Pokedex vibrates, and you are presented with a new AR Pop-Up. It reads: “Alert! Wild Pokemon Nearby!” It indicates the direction the Pokemon is in, and as you head to look for it, you find…Roll 1d100.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>42512317
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>42512317
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>42512317
...A Rattatta sniffing about the bushes. It hasn't noticed you yet. You realize that if you stay here to try and battle/capture it, you might end up late for your lunch. That would make your mother furious.>Try and catch it>Defeat it for the XP>Ignore it and head home
>>42512427>>Defeat it for the XP
>>42512427Defeat it for XPBug empire
>>42512427Go to catch it, could be useful for the dex, and mom knows why I was out, she might let it slide
>>42512449As it happens, Gym Leader and Elite Four slots are still open, if you want to try and build a mono-type team.
>>42512427>Try and catch it
>>42512427>Defeat it for the XP
>>42512466Only original gen right? Cause if not I want a larvesta a so bad.
>>42512466Oh hell yeah.Bugs everywhere. Status effects for the win.
>>42512534The test only includes the original generation. The later generations will be added one by one.
You send out Vit to battle with the Rattata, and he does a surprisingly good job with your direction. The Rattatta is nowhere near as coordinated as the Shellder, and through a well-placed poison sting, it is defeated. Satisfied with the experience gain, you head home for lunch. As you arrive, your Mother is setting out plates with sandwiches on them. You notice that she is wearing a pair of goggles like yours. "Hello Ross, how was it?">"It was okay I guess...">"It was amazing! I've won two battles!">"I was a bit too late, so my Pokemon is a reject.">"Why are you wearing those goggles?"
>>42512651"I have received the greatest Pokemon of all time. Weedle."
>>42512651>"It was amazing! I've won two battles!">"Why are you wearing those goggles?"
>>42512651>>"It was amazing! I've won two battles!">"Why are you wearing those goggles?"
"It was amazing! I've won two battles already!" Your Mother smiles at you and laughs slightly. "My my, you're a fine young pokemon trainer already." You both share a little laugh and start digging into your sandwiches. While you're eating, you decide to ask about the goggles. "Uh, Mom, why are you wearing those goggles?" She smiles at you again. "So I can meet your new Pokemon, of course. What kind of Pokemon is it?" You withdraw Vit's Pokeball and toss it into the air, releasing Vit in the process. "This is Vitriol, he's a Weedle, the greatest Pokemon of all time!" Vit starts climbing up onto the table, and your mother giggles. "It is very nice to meet you, Vitriol. I'm Megan. I hope we can be friends!" As soon as Vit hears this, he starts smiling and rolling around on the table. "You know Ross, you should make sure to set aside some time to play with your Pokemon every now and then. Friendship is just as strong as power levels, if not stronger." Your father talks about stuff like that all the time, how with all the complex AI going into this project, companionship with Pokemon plays a strong role. You wonder if there is any truth to that.You finish your lunch, retrieve Weedle and head out again, to search for more wild Pokemon. You decide to head to...>The grassy hill by the river>The train station>The local Ice Cream shop
>>42512951>>The train station
>>42512951>>The grassy hill by the riverCome on, Gatorface!
>>42512951The grassy hill by the river.Maybe we can find more bug pokemon. And we're less likely to run into trainers there. We should stay away from trainers until we have our pokemon evolve at least one.Plus, weedle will be more happy in the grass lands.I'm voting we don't keep him in the pokeball at all times and treat him like a good friend.
>>42512951>The grassy hill by the river
>>42512951>The grassy hill by the riverHe shouldn't be exhausted yet with only two fights non hard fights.
You head for the grassy hill by the river, reasoning that it would be more likely to locate a wild pokemon in natural surroundings. When you arrive, you see that a girl with short, jet black hair is sitting on the riverbank, but she doesn't seem to notice you. The hill is rather large, and the Pokemon Detector rather short range, so you begin walking around in an attempt to locate a new wild Pokemon.Roll 1d100 for your encounter.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>42513072I hope we have some spare pokeballs? You usually start the game with 5, right?
>>42513085Professor Eucalyptus forgot to give you your five starting pokeballs, so you had to go back to the AI Lab after battling Abby. You have them now.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>42513072Come on Gatorface!
>>42513108I haven't the slightest idea what you're looking for.
>>42513117Its a different gen pokemon.There aren't any croc or gator pokemon in the first gen.
The Pokemon Detector goes off with a beep, and you swing around, coming face to face with a Caterpie playing in the grass.>Fight>Catch>Ignore
>>42513159Fight that bitch. We dont need no cheap imitator when weve already got the real deal.
>>42513159>FightEven our weedle is better then a fucking caterpie.

>>42513574please tell me that's sarcasm
>>42513588Just telling you what to filter
>>42513608He wasn't that bad. Few people can consistently pull out updates within 30 minutes of each other, including votes.If he tried again with a premise that had more body, I'd take a look.
Sorry guys. Computer died on me.Anyone still around?
>>42513671Keep going bro, we're all good except End of the World Anon here >>42513574
>>42513671and this is why you wait AT LEAST an hour before complaining like spoiled brats.
You toss your Pokeball and send out Vitriol, engaging the Caterpie in combat. It puts up a fight, attempting to tackle Vit, but the Weedle merely dodges and gets off a few well placed Poison Stings. The Caterpie looks quite weak, and you ready your Pokeball for throwing. Before you can catch it however, it connects with a Tackle and sens Vitriol rolling down the hill. With not a moment to waste, you throw the empty Pokeball and return Vit to his. The Pokeball captures the Caterpie and comes to rest on the grass.It beeps once, twice, three times, and clicks. You've caught a Caterpie!>Name Caterpie>Don't Name It
>>42513763>>Don't Name It
>>42513763>>Name CaterpieName is Free.
>>42513763Toast or Free
You welcome Free as your new addition to the team. With his capture, you're down to 4 Pokeballs, and 4 spare Team Slots. As you begin to look for a new Pokemon, you notice that the girl with the short black hair has started walking towards you. She's wearing the AR goggles and feedback gloves that mark her as a fellow Pokemon Trainer, but she's wearing an old timey dress that looks rather out of place. "Hiya! You're a Trainer too, right? Wanna have a battle?">"I'm too busy!">"Sorry, maybe another time?">"You're on!"
>>42513844>"You're on!".....they aren't using REAL cash for battles, right?
>>42513865They use Pokedollars, which can only be used to purchase virtual items such as Pokeballs and potions. There's no way to turn Pokedollars into real money or vice versa. You receive a certain amount of money each week from the system, depending on your battle history.
>>42513883>There's no way to turn Pokedollars into real money or vice versa.>No MicrotransactionsDisbelief Broken.
>>42513883For a second there, I wondered if Abby was about to lose $10,000 in a chump vs chump fight.
>>42513891In this timeline, Pokemon GO removed the micro-transactions after the program was used for money-laundering by an organization called "Team Motor." It was an international scandal.
>>42513891look, are you voting or not?
>>42513905>>42513919He said his disbelief was broken, so the explanation in >>42513883 was good.
"You're on!" You cry, as you send out Vitriol once more. The Short Haired Girl sends out a Ghastly. Not good, Ghost types are strong against Poison attacks."Alright Phantom, use Hypnosis!""Vitriol, use Poison Sting!""Hypnosis!""Poison Sting!""Hypnosis!"Finally, Ghastly succeeds in getting Vitriol to sleep, and finishes him off with a Lick. This girl's battling was impressive, considering you've all only had a Pokemon for half a day. She even indicated what direction Ghastly should dodge in using arm movements. You consider sending out Free, but decide to concede. After all, Tackle can't hit Ghost Types. The Short Haired Girl is grinning from ear to ear. "Well, that was fun! I had a great battle with you! Your name is Ross, right?">"How do you know my name?">"It was a pretty great battle, wasn't it?">"What's your name?">"You just got lucky."
>>42513954the point is that I'm the only one voting here.>>42513957>"Yeah, what's your name?"Friend of Abby?
>>42513968"Yeah, that's me. What's your name?" She beams at you. "I'm Cassie. Cassie Winhill. It's a pleasure to meet you, Ross!" Cassie cocks her head to the side and withdraws her Ghastly. "So how many Pokemon do you have, Ross?" Well with Vitriol and the newly caught Free... "I have two, a Weedle and a Caterpie." Cassie does a little twirl. She seems unnaturally excited, must be one of those really energetic kids. " That's twice the number of Pokemon I have! You work fast! Trying to be a Gym Leader? Elite Four member? Maybe even the Champion?">"I'm Shooting all the way for the top! Champion!">"It'd be pretty cool to be in the Elite Four.">"I suppose being a Gym Leader isn't too far fetched.">"None of that interests me."
>>42514029>>"None of that interests me."I'm going to be Red and stand at the top of a tall ass mountain all day.
>>42514029>"Do they even have an Elite Four yet? I thought that comes in next month's patch.">"I just want cool pokemon"
>>42514029>"It'd be pretty cool to be in the Elite Four."or>"I suppose being a Gym Leader isn't too far fetched."
"I didn't know they had the Pokemon League Program out yet. Wasn't that next month's patch?" Cassie smirks. "Ah, the Pokemon League Program isn't out yet but I managed to sneak a peak. My Mom works at the Pokemon Company Building." Of course her mother works at the Pokemon Company Building, that's the entire reason for this town in the first place. "Anyway, it turns out that the strongest 4 trainers who can build their team around a specific theme get to be Elite Four, and then the strongest 8 trainers below them form the Gym Leaders. The first person to beat all 12 of them becomes the first Regional Pokemon Champion. You'd do well to study up if you want the spot." Well you've never been the best at Pokemon, but you've always been passionate about it. You'll have to consider giving it a go. "I dunno, I'm just interested in battling and Cool Pokemon, but being a Gym Leader or Elite Four Member doesn't sound half bad." Cassie beams that huge smile at you once again and says goodbye, taking off running for the other side of the hill. You'd better get going yourself, it's almost dinnertime.Once you arrive back at home, you say hello to your Mother, have a nice dinner, and head to bed. You take Vitriol and Free out of their pokeballs and say goodnight to them, before switching off your pokedex. You take off your gloves and your AR Goggles, change into your pajamas, and dive into bed. You're asleep before your head hits the pillow.END OF DAY 1.Hope you enjoyed it everyone. Gonna run it same time tomorrow, maybe a little earlier.
>>42514188And of course, if anyone has any questions they'd like to ask about the setting, I'd be happy to answer.
>>42514188>DAY 2>MONDAY>GO THE FUCK TO SCHOOL, KID>>42514196Doing pretty good, OP.
>>42514196newly caught and fainted pokemon don't need to be healed? Is healing automatic?
I'm surprised that in 2032, technology hasn't advanced to a stage where full gloves are needed to interact with AR objects. I expected something along the lines of a smart watch/bracelet or a ring. Sub dermal tech (under the skin) would be the ultimate in AR interaction.
>>42514410Healing isn't automatic, it just hasn't come up yet. To heal your Pokemon Team you'll need to head to a designated Pokemon Center, of which there are several. The School Bike Racks are registered as a Pokemon Center, for example.>>42514440The gloves also provide a sensation of touch and weight when interacting with AR Objects and Pokeballs.
>>42514541>Healing isn't automatic, it just hasn't come up yet. >>42513957>Finally, Ghastly succeeds in getting Vitriol to sleep, and finishes him off with a Lick.>>42514188>You take Vitriol and Free out of their pokeballs and say goodnight to themGuess we were just saying goodnight to a fainted weedle and a caterpie near death and probably still poisoned. But it's ok cause it hasn't been brought up yet. Sorry, I like to point out continuity errors.
>>42515668Good point.Allow me to retcon this with my almighty powers by saying that your house acts as another pokemon center, like in the games.>>42515681Well either when you find the kid who picked it and somehow convince them to trade, or when you find an area that actually spawns fire types.
>>42515681NeverBug life niggawe just gotta find a Scyther
>>42515736We need a team full of scythers, plus Vit the Beedrill
>>42516156And a pinserDepending on how quickly they add the newer gens, we might be able to get a Heracross and Ariados
>>42516248If the come out with gens fast enough, Volcaronas are cash.
Team proposalCaterpie lineWeedle linePinsirScytherParas lineVenonat lineOnce they release new generation I'd recommend picking up Shuckle, Heracross, and maybe Pineco line
>>42516872I'm up for this we can become the bug gym leader.
>>42516960>bug themed Elite FourFTFY
>>42516872That's the only 6 Bugs familly we can get with only access to first gen anyway
I dont like quest threads normally way to weeb. but this shit made me laugh. someone picked magikarp.... I kekd
>>42517991He's probably going to use it to bludgeon other pokemon with until it evolves.
>>42517933As the new gens come out, we'll improve the team. As a rule, we're going to be weak to fire for a long time. We should see if we can grow berries, and farm the ones that make super effective fire moves weaker
>>42518736We'll need a shuckle, Sanskrit and larvesta/volcarona for fire resist.
>>42518753Surskit won't be really useful once it evolve however. Crustle and Armaldo could be really useful on that front
>>42518786True. Which is a shame that evo fucks up it's typing. Shuckle is the earliest not shit against fire we can get right?
>>42518753If they have megas, we should get a heracross and give it as many rock and ground moves we can. He's a good wall, will be released soon, and looks awesome. I just realized someone got a Dratini for their starter. They're gonna be at least a gym leader
>>42518905I know. That makes me sad as a player. I would try for dragons but everyone has decided on being bug trainer.Are the starters out in the wild?
>>42518830Yes, nothing else before then have the typing, stats or moves to take care of a fire Pokemon
>>42518905Megas probably won't come out for a while. Which means Shuckle is our best bet for anti fire with it's bug ground typing, even if it looks goofy. That said heracross is a lock too.As for Dratini,there are only 2 ice types in gen 1 Jinx and Articuno. The only dragon types are that line of mons as well. Dragon only trainers won't be until gen 3 at earliest.>>42518936Yes, but they're correspondingly rare based on element.
>>42519010Just having a dragon as a starter is a massive advantage. The guy with it could have a flying team. We're not limited to single types if we want to be part of the league, just a theme. >>42518936We can have a bug theme. Flygon would probably be counted as a "bug", despite its typing. Hell, we could do a weaponry theme. Beedrill is lances, Octilory for cannon, honedge as a sword, Clawitzer artillery, ect.
>>42519010>even if it looks goofyoi you tryin to fuckle with shuckle m8?
>>42519132Fuck no, no one fuckles with the schuckle, else it get to chuckle at their team buckles.
