    So, /tg/, inspired by this picture I've started to make a character for a Pokemon Tabletop Adventures game I've had a chance to join. That's Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, if you don't know your American heroes.

    So, I'm almost done, but I find myself at a conundrum. What pokemon should PKMN Trainer Batman start with? I'm tempted to ask for Zubat or Gligar (Which the DM said was OK), but that seems almost.... too obvious?

    What does /tg/ think? Also Pokemon Tabletop Adventures thread.

    The way Batman is in front of WW, I at first thought it was Cynthia with pointy boobs and a tiara. Until I read the post it didn't make sense.

    Batman needs a pokemon that can be prepared for any situation, so something with a wide moveset, and he needs something that can counter Superman.

    It also needs to be shaped like a bat. If it is not a bat itself, it needs a bat costume or something.

    In what /coc/ came up with, they gave Superman Deyoxsis as his starter.

    If you remember, FIRST he witnesses his parents dying and tries to fight crime just in a mask. It doesn't work very well, so THEN he adopts the bat motif to "strike fear in their hearts".

    Cubone, especially the one from Lavender tower that just lost its mom to Team rocket, is a better STARTING pokemon for Wayne. The rest of his team later should be bat themed.

    Also: Batman => Batarang, Cubone =>Bonemerang! It doesn't get more obvious.
    >> Anonymous 05/04/10(Tue)20:04 No.9616151
    Exactly. He then gets a zubat for the theme, and gilgar for the gliding cape. Ditto is for his crazy prepared.

    Definitely Ditto for "Crazy Preparedness" unless we're counting All 450+ including legendaries (which I assume we are given Kal-El getting Deoxys and WW getting Mewtwo. If so, why not Arceus? It can be ANY TYPE just by equipping a different "Plate", much like batman can overcome any foe with a gadget from the utility belt.
    >> Anonymous 05/04/10(Tue)20:25 No.9616381
    Batman doesn't use legendaries
    That does not fit with his MO at all.
    hive him Crowbat, Marowak, and then have him switch between 30+ pokemon depending on the mission
    he is always prepared, always

    Batman's team is NOTHING BUT SMEARGLES.
    >> Anonymous 05/04/10(Tue)20:31 No.9616475
    Smeargle is pretty much strictly set-up/support. Spore, then do whatever the fuck (pass bonuses or lay out entry hazards). Maybe two for those purposes.

    Ninjask is another good candidate. Baton Pass Swords Dances + Speed Boosts to Marowak, who fucks shit up.

    The others would cover other roles (Blissey, Skarmory, Tyranitar, Starmie, etc.)

    Not really what you wanted but i felt like doing it.

    ok, no Legendaries.

    I think he should keep Cubone a Cubone. Smash that B button, Brucie! Pumped full of Iron, Carbos and other nutrients to make it the physical peak it can be, but still a Cubone.

    If we're running this by Pokemon TV show rules, Starmie is a decent choice. It can use Water, Ice, Psychic and even Electric attacks (besides normal physical attacks) and (if TV show rules again) doesn't have a limit of 4 moves known at a time.

    Tabletop is like a cross between tv and game rules. I'm pretty sure there aren't 4 move limits.

    TT gives the mons access to seven naturally learned moves (leveling/breeding) and seven taught moves (TM/HM/tutor).

    Which would make the likes of Tyranitar, Garchomp, Machamp and Starmie into retardedly powerful sweepers with the sheer level of type coverage they could reach.

    Oh man, I started playing this a couple weeks ago with a few fellow elegan/tg/entlemen. It's been fun as hell. Today we killed some Kakuna, once to a HOLY SHIT Thundershock crit, which did over 100 damage to a single kakuna, dispite only comming from a lv6 voltorb, then a Happiny used Metronome, and freaking did ROAR OF TIME, then slew 3 or 4 more, and the tree. Then we got chased by a bunch of beedrill, and a vespiqueen. Good times.

    Uses pokemon as thrown weapons.

    Bronzor, Staryu, both know protect and endure, not to mention they both can levitate and return to him.
    Damage varies from Rapid Spin (1d8) and Tackle (2d10) to Take Down (3d20), and if you're lucky, Double Edge (5d20).
