Do you use Discord? Do you like catching Pokémon? Have you heard of Elaria? If you answered yes to the first two, you should give it a go! Professor Tilia is always looking for new people to help fill her Living Dex!
It just so happens she is hosting an event right now, where you could even get your own Pokémon form added into the game! Details can be found over in the Elaria discord server, right here
All content from the former Roleplaying Games forum has been merged into the Writers' Workshop forum. You can find more information in this thread.
We hope to see you roleplaying away soon!
What happened to the Pokemon GO section?
Hey all! We wanted to let everyone know that the Pokemon GO section has officially been merged into the Pokemon Video Games section. You can find more information in this thread.
The Writer's Workshop is hosting an exciting event, Trainers of Fanfiction! It's a community event focused around your characters!
...Also, some Ghost-type moves, like "Curse" & "Spite" have to do with emotions and "Revenge" (Revenge is a Fighting-type move, which is interesting since it's supposed to be the honorable type).
Speaking of the Fighting-type, I think it's fine just the way it is. Not all Fighting-type moves would fit into a Light-type because Fighting-type moves are also about actual combat- not just about good honor. "Low Kick" uses the foe's weight against them, which is smart but not honorable. "Reversal" works better on weak opponents, and "Low Sweep" is kind of like a tripping attack. These are all Fighting-type attacks that aren't fair.
Hey Shuckle, I just remembered something. Remember the "If You Could Invent A New Type" thread? This is the Light-type/Fighting-types comment:
Light Type is made obsolete in many ways, as the Fighting Type has already done that job (Lucario, Gallade, Musketeer Quartet, etc.).
Me: A lot of people use the Fighting-type excuse against the idea of a Light-type. But the Fighting-type isn't always "good guys & honor"
We already have a light type. It's called fighting. Fighting is the opposite of the dark type because it represents honorable and legitimate combat arts. The Hitmons, the Machamp line, et cetera. For five generations now fighting Pokemon are portrayed as masters of wrestling, kung fu, karate, judo, boxing, kickboxing, capoeira, sumo, taekwondo, and also warrior/battle skills. The Musketeers are just that, and their signature move is "sacred sword". The Fighting type is the best representation of "light" there is. Does it reflect the idea that it's based on the light spectrum/light energy? No, it's based more on holiness or good nature fighting. But then the Dark type isn't based on "darkness" so much as dark intentions. So if you only want to look at the Fighting type as the Holy type rather than the Light Type, then you're gonna have to accept the Dark type as the Evil type and not the Darkness type. So you make a Light type and people are going to want like a Shadow type. What's the point?
If anybody comes and reads this, I have a problem - as in my signature, I made a Shuckle sprite, 99 x 99, 29kb. But I can't get it on - it pops up the message 'This is not a valid image file'. Any suggestions? (I'd show the sprite, but once more I can't find a way)
Edit: Woot! Thanks, Ryekew, for introducing me to the concept of image hosting sites!
