Pokemon Illusion Game: Battle Dimensions!

    Illusion Game: Battle Dimensions!

    Plot
    Team Rainbow Rocket has returned to the Indigo Plaza, and have installed their own Elite Four. They've put out the call- a challenge- for trainers from across the world to participate in their New World Pokémon League. Travelling from far and wide, you and your fellow trainers have enrolled yourselves this tournament. Maybe you've come in search of glory, or a chance to strengthen the bond between you and your Pokémon. Regardless, the chance to face off against the best of the best has drawn you to Kanto and into the heart of a conspiracy that branches across all 7 regions.

    Mechanics
    Illusion Mechanics

    As the result of a cosmic shift, a canon character of your choosing has been transported to the Pokémon world and trapped in the body of a regular Pokémon trainer.

    Your canon character has overwritten by a lifetime's worth of fake memories; they believe that they their whole lives as a member of Pokémon society and, through reasons yet unknown, so do the people they surround themselves with.

    In other words, they are living their lives in the heart of the illusion. As your canon character slowly unravels the mystery of the Legendary Pokémon, the will also slowly uncover the memories of the people they were before coming to Kanto.

    Every round, a Rainbow Rocket plant will act against your team. They will look just like your every day Pokémon trainer, however, the plant and their Pokémon will be subliminally conditioned to covertly defeat and steal a Pokémon from a player at the end of each round. If you are the Rocket spy, I'll DM you during the prologue. If one of your Pokémon is stolen, do not worry! There will be a chance to reclaim your missing Pokémon before the game is over,.

    Pokémon Mechanics
    On your journey across the Pokémon world, you will, of course, have a troop of Pokémon companions at your side! For the game's prologue, you will be playing as a mid-tier Pokémon trainer, so don't expect to have a full team of Titans right away. Excluding Legendary Pokémon, you can have your pick of any of 800+ Pokémon on the National Pokedex, a list of which can be found here:

    Battle Point Mechanics
    In order to keep teams balanced, we will use a Battle Point (BP) system. When building your team, you will have 9 battle points to spend on any Pokémon you wish. How do battle points work, you may ask? Well, every Pokémon is assigned a value between 1 and 3.

    Pokémon in their first evolutionary stage will cost 1 BP
    Pokémon in their second evolutionary stage will cost 2 BP
    Pokémon that do not evolve will cost 3 BP
    Pokémon in their third evolutionary stage will cost 3 BP


    At the end of every chapter, your trainer will earn an additional 2 Battle Points. You can either use one of these battle points to evolve one of your existing Pokémon or have the chance to capture a new Pokémon.

    More about Evolving Pokémon will revealed in the IC.

    Here's and example of a tea, you can make within the 9 BP limit:

    Illusion Character Sheet
    Illusion Name: Bernie

    Illusion Appearance: A large, jovial man with a kind face and a twinkle in his eye. Has the body of a typical strongman, built large and muscular...though his stomach has put on a few extra pounds. Has a full head of brown hair that he keeps in a bun, and a full beard, as well. His arms are covered in tattoos.

    Illusion Age: 40

    Illusion Biography: When he was a teenager, Bernie used to be a member of a feared Biker gang in Kanto, feared by all, until one day everything changed. His gang wound up vandalizing a Pokemon daycare center run by an elderly couple over by Cerulean City. Feeling a deep remorse for it, Bernie turned himself in, receiving community service as punishment...which he spent helping clean up and working at the very daycare center he took part in messing up. Not having a very good home life himself, Bernie ended up seeing the couple as parents, and they, with no children of their own, viewed Bernie as their own son. Eventually, the couple decided to retire to Alola, leaving Bernie the daycare center, which he happily runs (though he still enjoys tending to and riding his bike).

    Though he's not exactly a typical trainer, Bernie does have a team made up of Pokemon hatched from eggs left behind at the daycare that weren't given up for adoption. Leaving the daycare in the hands of his employees, he decided to check out the League in order topromote the center and maybe drum up some business.

    Illusion Character Sheet
    Illusion Name: Alphonse Starr
    Illusion Appearance: A not at all fancy looking boy, Alphonse Starr has a dirty face and an even dirtier set of clothing. He has big, messy hair that could really use a comb rubbing through it, he has freckles splattered unevenly all over his face, and he wears overalls with a slightly torn up T-shirt underneath. He looks like your typical farm boy, with big, muddy boots to go with his suspenders look. He has surprisingly nice looking green eyes, however. Like a lush forest. His actual frame is pretty big and muscular. He’s certainly got strength.
    Illusion Age: 18
    Illusion Biography: A kid who had grown up on a farm in the middle of nowhere, Alphonse never expected himself to be getting very far. He was always told to aim modestly in life. He likely wasn’t going to get anywhere, so he might as well enjoy where he is today. Because of this, he didn’t even expect to really get a pokemon outside of the ones used in the farm. However, one day, there was a bump in the night, and he discovered that there was a Litwick in his home! After a small little tussle, he captured the Litwick, and the two became fast friends. Afterwards, his life got a little more hectic, and a little more insane. He was starting to actually go out into the Wild and encounter some pokemon when not working on the farm. He was going through several different trainers, having fun battles and catching some other pokemon when he could afford the pokeballs to do so. Honestly, he was happy. He felt that him and his pokemon partners could do anything, so he went to challenge the League! Does he expect to win? Hell naw! He just wants to have some fun and appreciate the time with his pokemon.

    Micha

    Illusion Age:
    15

    Illusion Biography:
    Before the start of her gyaru life, Micha was just another girl - black hair braided, pale-hued skin and donning a pair of circular glasses to accompany her neat, kempt outfit. Alright, maybe not so much 'another girl'. She was a Gym Leader of another region, specialising in Normal-type Pokemon.
    Over time, she realised what a pushover she was in terms of being defeated, and she believed that Normal-type Pokemon were holding her back, so she passed the Gym to her brother, Mondane, before setting out on a journey to become stronger, all while changing her appearance and fashion choice.

    Illusion Name: Martha Fee

    Illusion Appearance: A girl of about 5'8", she wears a red uniform with some chain mail underneath, and a patch on her arm that reads "Die Ranger" She has amber eyes and brown hair slightly past her shoulders. Wears a symbolic sword at her side. When not in Ranger garb, she wears a flowery kimono-style robe and a flower in her hair.

    [​IMG]
    This, minus the helmet

    Illusion Age: 20

    Illusion Biography: Martha was born in Saksa, a region near Kalos. Saksa is a highly forested region with a heavy tourist industry focused on the traditional aspects of the country. The Rangers there dress as knights due to the Noble Tradition of the country. Trained in the ways of the Saksa Rangers, Martha soon left the country seeking fortune and fame in a Quixotic way, and thus, while she still has modern appliances, might not be used to the ways of the fully modern world due to her relative isolation. She is a defender of the right and upholder of justice. She hopes to use the league in order to bolster her view of justice and ideals in the world.
