Pokemon Mystery Dungeon!:

Up on Melancholy Hill.
Oh wow, this is gonna be a tricky one, isn't it? *Scratches head* Well, I suppose this is as good as any to give it a shot.

Okay, Pokemon Mystery Dunegon Folks! Here's how this is gonna work: No humans, as the games have stated plenty of times, just Pokemon! There are going to be plenty of teams (Limit: 3 Members per team, Please), and each one is going to go on a life altering quest for glory, helping the Pokemon community out in some shape or form!

And yes, for those wondering, you can play as any P Okemon from generation 1 to 5, just...no Legendaries, please. You will ENCOUNTER them, though, and MAY have the chance to have them join, but...we'll c ross that bridge when we come to it.

The Skeleton is gonna look like this:

  • Name:
  • Species: What Pokemon are they? Please, try to keep FULL *Evolutionary out of the mix right now. They'll evolve when the time comes, I promise.
  • Moves: Up to 4, but that's standard eh?
  • Member of: What team are they apart of? (For now, I'll take the first 5 people to start up as the leaders of said teams, after that, people following them will join one of the current existing 6 teams, counting my team)
  • Personality: How does your character act?
  • Appearance: Is there anything strange about your character that makes him a little...unique?
  • History: Not important, but it helps to flesh out your character
  • Strengths: What's so special about him?
  • Weaknesses: And what makes him weak?
  • Aspiration: What does your character hope to accomplish by being a member of this team?

I'll start off with TWO Characters, one NPC, one my Real character.

  • Name: Andre
  • Species: Kadabra
  • Moves: He doesn't fight, but his only known attacks are Psy-Beam and Psychic.
  • Member Of: Not a member of a Rescue Team, rather he's the one who sends the rescue teams on their missions.
  • Personality: He's EXTREMELY hot headed, and he WILL smack you upside the head if you piss him off. He's very stubborn and won't take no for an answer lightly.
  • History: Not much is really known about him...mysterious, eh?
  • Strengths: As the Rescue Team coordinator, he knows exactly what situation each Pokemon team is in, and will try to help in any way he can.
  • Weaknesses: His attitude is a weakness in itself, if he's angry he can't think properly and will sometimes...well, his psychic abilities go a little crazy and...well, that Blaziken he threw into a wall still hasn't woken up...
  • Aspirations: "...Honestly...I just want my teams to come back alive..."

Now my character!

  • Name:Jeremiah
  • Species: Futachimaru
  • Moves: Fury Cutter, Shell Blade, Vengence and Water Pulse.
  • Member of: Team Honor
  • Personality: Jeremiah is EXTREMELY Brash and thick headed. He considers his honor the one thing he must always defend and, despite the fact the chances may be slim, he will ALWAYS fight. He...tends to lose a lot this way.
  • Apperance: The only thing out of the ordinary for Jeremiah is a large gash going from the right of his head over his right eye, along with a slight discoloration of said eye.
  • History: He first fought was against an unseen rival when he was still a Mijumaru, resulting in a horrible gash across his right eye. Since then, he's strived to become stronger, and to protect the weak and innocent.
  • Strengths: The fact he's always willing to fight helps him grow stronger each time. He learns each time.
  • Weaknesses: Because he can't turn down a fight, this always ends up with him being knocked out, or horribly wounded.
  • Aspirations: "When the weak cannot defend themselves...I shall be there to answer the call! This I swear!"

3 moves? Why not four that's Pokemon standard? Its about the quality of the moves themselves, not the number of attacks.

  • Name: Cleo
  • Species: Shinx-Luxio
  • Moves: Assuming that you don't change the three movie limit. Spark Bite Thunderbolt Aqua Tail.
  • Member of: Team Jupiter
  • Personality: A quite literal Cowardly Lion. She is humble to the point of having terribly low-self esteem and in general afraid of almost anything that takes her off guard. People follow her because she has a good head on her shoulders and becuase of her history
  • Appearance: Like all female Shinx she has a blue stripe on her feet. More particular to her as an individual is a patch of yellow fur on her tail.
  • History: She is one of the few remaining ancestors of a legendary Pikachu explorer who was rumored to save the world. Because of this she is given respect and is crushed by high expectations that she never thinks she'll be able to meet.
  • Strengths: Tactics, Cleo is one to think up plans and schemes. The plan will always involve the minimal amount of risk to both her team and the feral Pokemon they encounter
  • Weaknesses: Her self-doubt leaves her constantly second guessing herself. She will often refuse to take neccesary risks becuase she's desperately afraid of any kind of failure. Also her lack of assertion leads to the fact that she can be wishy-washy.
  • Aspiration: I want to make the Pokemon world safe for everyone!

[up] Hmmm, that's a good point. Okay, I'll adjust. Accepted by the way. Welcome. ^^

  1. Name: Crimson Riker
  2. Species: Crimgan
  3. Moves: Hyperbeam, Brick Break, Aerial Ace, Rock Smash
  4. Member of: He mostly appears as an odd mix between The Rival and a Blood Knight. He sometimes appears with a team, but most often, he fights alone, furthering some agenda.
  5. Personality: It is inferred he selects a new rival every week, and then pushes and tugs at that rival until they are ready to present a decent challenge for him, and then it gets messy. He has very few standards, but one of them is you just do not exclusively attack weaker people.
  6. Appearance: A scar on his stomach from a fight with a hero a while ago. He never forgives and never forgets...
  7. History: He started off as a member of a dragon army working for a Garchomp known as The Iron Tyrant, and is inferred to have fought a more experienced hero while there, and had been beaten, leading him to put himself through Training from Hell, learning very powerful moves, but currently knows only those power moves.
  8. Strengths: Of the Pure Claw Legion, his Hyper Beam is known for being hideously powerful.
  9. Weaknesses: His powerful Hyper Beam requires that he close his eyes and thus blindly aim in one direction. Otherwise, he tends to get a bit too angry if he struggles, and becomes sloppy
  10. Aspiration: Becoming the new Iron Tyrant.

Add a fourth move Nick. But the larger problem with your character seems to be that he's a tad overpowered.

Also can I change Charge to Thunderbolt? The set is kind of pathetically weak when compared to the other PCs.

Go ahead, we're still in the planning process, adjustments can be made, just tell me what you do end up changing.

So genocidal to all non-Dragons? A lot of opportunity for a Boomerang Bigot.
You cant ignore my girth
Hmmmm, must pay tribute to most favorite series ever...

Name:Darcs

Species:Oddish==>Gloom

Moves:Energy ball, Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder & Sludge bomb.

Member of: Team J4D3.(Yes, it's actually spelled like that.)

Personality:Darcs is modest and immature most of the time, but does know how to create a decisive battle out of the most random encounters.

Appearance: Darcs has 3 large leaves on his head in stead of the 5 regular sized ones for normal Oddish, he also tends to keep his yellow eyes wide open.

History:His ancestry traces back to a large colony warrior of Vileplume and Bellosom in the forest, they mysteriously disappeared when the war mongering race tried the seas for new land. He might be the last with their birth signs, "Yellow eyes, Three young leaves" this thrill to know what happened to his people led him to want to find out about them and every-where else.

Strength: Reckless decisiveness, some times he gets strange delusions that his name should really be napoleon...

Weakness:His war-general esque battle style often leaves him wasting too much energy on a single enemy.

Aspiration: For curiosity and conquest!

Yeah, their leader is a Garchomp in iron armor who is High Octane Nightmare Fuel incarnate...not to mention his general...a Sazandora General Ripper.

  • Moves: Peck, Fury Attack, False Swipe, Fly
  • Member of: Team Derse
  • Personality: Incredibly psychotic and unfunny. Cannot be convinced to do anything he doesn't want to do

  • History: Blank
  • Strengths: Jack will not stop at anything to achieve what he wants.
  • Weaknesses: Brash, reckless, prone to pecking everyone in sight for the fun of it
  • Aspiration: "Meh...whatever."

Expy of...guess.

There are no "Masters", this is the PMD universe. Besides Pokemon wearing a full outfit would be needlessly impractical. I would stick to Jack's bandana. As I recall the history section is option but if you don't want to fill it out don't put the bullet point there.
•Name:(If Forum name anailater)Flamezzzzz •Species: Chimchar •Moves: Ember' and some others.... need to think of them, , •Member of: Team alpha delta!!! •Personality: Acts without thinking but can be quite smart. •Appearance: Hes a half shiny his tail is purple and his body is red flames. •History: A normal chimchar used to belong to the greatisi pokemon trainer EVER then he (The trainer) died in a huge nuklear explosion that only pokemon were safe were from it. •Strengths: Nothing really.....(Hes a all rounder) •Weaknesses: Nothing really....(Hes a all rounder) •Aspiration: To find out what caused the nuklear explosion that killed the human race.
 
  • Name:Allen
  • Species: Ekans
  • Moves: Bite, Glare, Poison Fang, Wrap
  • Member of:
  • Personality: He tends to be distant, but is always up for an adventure. He can be nice once you get to know him.
  • Appearance: His rattle is black.

{Is there still room for a seperate team?}
It's a plot! ...Quite a well written one too.

Presuming you're not a troll here's a few suggestions for you. A). Execessive # of zs. B). Is it that hard to come up a four move set for a Chimchar? and C). Your backstory entirely alters the continuity of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon universe. Please change it and D) * is how you format bullet points.
Sorry This is my first thing like this (Kinda) so ill fix it one second..

•Name: Flames

•Species: Chimchar

•Moves: Ember'Flamethrower'Flame wheel'Fury swipes(Change if needed)

•Member of: Team alpha delta!!!

•Personality: Acts without thinking but can be quite smart.

•Appearance: Hes a half shiny his tail is purple and his body is red flames.

•History: Do all people need a tragic backstory to be accepted im just some guy.

•Strengths: Nothing really.....(Hes a all rounder)

•Weaknesses: Nothing really....(Hes a all rounder)

•Aspiration: To fufill his mothers dieing wish that he should get his family to be known.

This ok the moves may be a bit over powerd but any Constuctive criticm would be accepted.

So he's The Mario. Um... Flamethrower is listed twice. I don't think that works post PMD 2. Also this is only a strategic suggestion but I would give him at least one non-fire type move. Also theres nothing wrong with giving him a backstory as long as it makes sense within the PMD universe.

UPDATE: Apparently Mike is officially allowing me to moderate character formation. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Nope, that's correct.

I'm gonna make the Discussion thread in a moment. Also, ??????, Pies, your guys are accepted, Anailator too. ??????, sorry to say but it looks like the current teams are filled, so you'll need to join one.

UPDATE: Discussion thread here
