I am SO on board with this.
I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.
Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!
I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.
Oooh! Thank you! (◠‿◠✿) I’ll link to art where I have it online already.
Characters that are most mentally stable? Clarisse, hands-down. Back when I did a heckuva lot more Pokemon-related roleplay, Clarisse was one of the only ones to have functioning relationships. Heck, she’s one of the few characters I have who has strong relationships built on things other than shared short-term goals. Also, she’s got a pretty large support network, which always helps.
Characters with a lot of troubles? Rawst, Christian, and 17 probably take the cake in their own ways. Rawst is pretty hostile and has got some serious depression going on. He’s more violent than most of my OCs (Ramira excluded). Christian’s depressive too, but depressive in the sad, self-harm way. Christian’s the most likely to attempt suicide of my characters. 17 is… messed up pretty badly. There’s whole metric ton of codependency and abuse issues going on with her, and she hasn’t really had the chance to spread her wings outside of that situation yet.
Unsatisfied OCs? A lot of my OCs feel unsatisfied, haaa. Mostly because I’m still getting my stride in creating characters with strong goals and desires, and then, you know, giving my characters happy endings. I’m a fan of bittersweet endings myself, which makes for many an unhappy OC. But as for specifics? Wisp, from the Die Vecna Die campaign (a.k.a Baby Party), is pretty unhappy about the whole evil-insanity-inducing black tentacle thing getting into Sigil. I haven’t entirely decided how he deals with that, because what he wants to do to set it straight will get him killed and he knows that and he’s kinda a wuss. Rawst n’ Christian are unsatisfied, mostly because of lack of people that they’re close to. For Rawst, everything he’s worked for is gone, and for Christian, there has never been that much they’ve wanted to work for.
Other characters I have are either not-well developed, better off than these poor sods, have not been RPed, or I’m just forgetting about them.
"you can’t be a pansexual, you’ve only been in three relationships and they’ve all been with cis guys"
oh sorry i wasn’t aware i needed the eight pansexual badges before i was considered a pansexual master
after that, you can go beat the queerlite 4
Now that I am finally off work, I am able to devote my evening towards the latest game announcement: Pokemon Omega Ruby, and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire!
Barely anything has been revealed about these games, except for the names, possible boxart, and only a few brief sentences about the games. However, despite this minor info, we are able to make some hypotheses using the little bit we do know, and information from X and Y.
Things that we can safely assume include:
- The games will run on the same engine as X and Y. It wouldn’t make sense to go backwards, so we should expect for these games to be in full 3D.
- The games will be set in Hoenn.
With such little information released, it is hard to make assumptions past that, but there are several guesses and questions that I have for these upcoming titles. The press has said “The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world.”, which the video also mentions a spectacular new world and a brand new adventure. That being said, we can make an assumption that these won’t be pure remakes, but there will be changes, but what? I have many thoughts and questions regarding these games, including:
