*whispers* i refuse. no.
*Whispers* I was talking to the boss man.

I still don't understand your objection to watching a nuzlocke, but you are welcome to watch what you want. I'll be doing a non-nuzlocke challenge after I lose or complete this one. And ME is doing a normal let's play.

I need to watch it. I started the first episode but between the season and some family stuff I haven’t had time to continue.

that would make sense, but, unfortunately, this Gonta person is a male, and my new teammate is a female...

yeah. what's actually really odd is that, aside from my starter, all of the Pokemon on my team so far (which is 3 as of where I stopped recording) are female. I'm not resetting for that, but it just kinda happened. The only thing I reset for was Heracross's level and ability, since I didn't want to raise a level 5 Heracross, or one without Guts.

I'm kind of curious as to why this section is a subsection of F&G. Why not move it up a level and put it in the Bulbagarden Game Corner alongside F&G and Roleplaying games? If there's problems with filling up games, maybe it'd help attract a few more players here by making it more visible to possible newcomers.

Like, F&G games are generally quite simple and repetitive, and I could understand why someone would dismiss the section completely without checking TWR out. I know I did for the longest time. I think this place is distinct enough from the usual F&G fare to be considered something separate. Roleplaying games and Fizzy bubbles are far less active than here, and it feels strange that in contrast to them, TWR is relegated to a sub-sub-section.

Hi there guys,

I'm just trying to guage interest in a generation style mafia game, but set within the Pokemon TCG boundaries. So there would still be a HP system, an evolution system, etc etc. I'm gonna use an old card as an example of what a role PM would look like.

You are Bulbasaur! From the Base Set Expansion!

You are a Grass-type with 40HP
Your Weakness is the Fire-type.
You have no resistance.
You have one move, Leech Seed, which does 20 Damage with the following effect: Unless all damage from this attack is prevented, you may heal 10HP.

I've had this in the backburner for a little while as a way to spread out the generation games as Gen V is not near completion yet, and I wouldn't mind using this as a game in the gap.
A couple notes for the game:
-Energy wouldn't exist, there would be downsides to using moves that cost more energy, but these would vary depending on card to card.
-Item cards would be a thing, whether they be potions or more advanced ones.
-The game would most likely consist of more older cards than new, such as EX or Level-X cards being the strongest cards, as I don't know much about the newer ones.
-Pokebodies or Poke-abilities would exist, and again these would vary from card to card, but they would provide passive or active actions.
-Not all moves would do as they say, obviously.

If people would like to see this please let me know so I can stick it in the queue, if people do not want it then that's ok of course!
