Oh jeez I said the Pokemon word. Put down the torches and pitchforks please, this might actually be an interesting project idea.

Right now its a pretty vague concept and I'll admit and I'm just kinda, throwing this out there (not to mention I have no idea if this was attempted before), but how does a Pokemon community project sound? I already have a basic concept for a plot figured out which is going to be used in some way or another anyway, so I figure, why not share it with the community?

… well okay I'll actually be keeping a good portion locked away as I develop the plot like any normal comic, but you know what I mean. :P

Oh, and if this flies, just remember that sprites aren't so good. I don't want to discriminate against spriters and sprite comics, and it hurts to do so considering thats where my roots lie, but part of why I'm doing this is because Pokemon sprite comics are all over the place, it'd be a refreshing change of pace to actually have artists come together and draw up some interesting comics for one of my favorite series, and I'm sure many other Pokemon fans would like to see the same thing.

Just so I can have a plot to hook you all with, the setting is based off the events of the game series, meaning the canon is everything that happened in the game. The events of this project take place a few months after the events of Daimond and Pearl, and World Champion Red, along with Kanto Champion Crystal, are launching one of the biggest Pokemon tournaments the world has ever seen, trainers everywhere are gathering together for this momentous occasion. However, something is strange. During this tournament, many trainer's Pokémon are suddenly dissapearing overnight, and officials can't seem to find the slightest clue to why this is happening. Many trainers are investigating this problem personally, while other just enjoy the tournament. The tournament is held on a massive structure built specifically for the event, filled with a large number of stadiums where trainers and spectators alike may enjoy their battles.

So what's the communities role, you ask? Not only will you get to participate in the way the plot shapes up, you get to make the whole thing interesting! Sure, I could focus on the single party of heroes that saves the day… but when a massive tournament is going on, that's hardly the only interesting thing! Spice up the setting with your own Pokemon trainers and battles, challenging other Drunkduck trainers to epic showdowns and discovering the mystery of the missing Pokémon.

It's kinda sketchy right now, but if people show interest and start hopping on, I'll make an effort to flesh it out far more than this. So what say you all?

I once managed to “catch em' all” in the far gone days of my youth and bare no embitterment towards them in my current years. Perhaps I shall endeavor to join if I can bang something out.

Alrighty, I guess Ryoko could use some dusting off:

Drawn form: (Man, this is an old drawing, I'll do a remake later today)


And here is her sprite:

As you can see, she wears her hair like a Cradily with the cap on top and she keeps a Lileep in her team. She's a member of a prestigious pokemon breeding family that specializes in raising reincarnated pokemon. The family has a particular kind of interaction with the pokemon it raises through playful conflict, giving the pokemon a more active lifestyle.

Ryoko has wrestled Armaldos and won. She is a very physically strong individual due to the way she was taught to rear pokemon. She's not the brightest individual, though. Her first pokemon was a Lileep. She actually used to wear a Lileep hat when she was younger.

Her team would start with:

Lileep
Aerodactyl
Gibble

Well, I'm still in the ‘gathering interest’ phase of the this, so no deadline quite yet, if there's even going to be one. Chances are I'm probably gonna go on a first come first serve typa thing if it gets truly outrageously popular, though hopefull we can avoid that because I don't want to start rejecting people based on when they got here :_>

Dude, sold.

I've seen this done many times before actually, (It's a craze on Smackjeeves.com) but it's always done with sprites. Seeing a hand drawn version would be quite awesome. As long as me and my trash talking, cigarette smoking Pikachu, Jack, are welcome, I'm all over this.

Oh, will this involve making individual side comics, like with the Drunk Duck Civil War? Or will it be more like one big comic contributed by multiple artists? Like an Impro-manga?

Arright! I think I've gathered more than enough interest to start setting things in stone about this project, especially since a couple of you have already gone and started to put effort in by developing/redeveloping yourselves a trainer!

Since there's already a plot set in stone(ish, I still have to refine it lots), the Impromaga idea is not be a suitable format for this project. Plus, I think that individual side comics would be great for demonstrating just how huge a scale this tournament is supposed to be, and show that its events aren't just affecting some random trio of trainers but rather, a large group of people. HOWEVER, I may enlist the aid of a few artists to help me draw the main comic, similar to how Riot and Zack shared doing the art for Civil War.

In any case, I'm going to start doing some concept sketches and what not as we're still raising interest, if you haven't started making a trainer yet, do iiit :O

Oh, and as for Trainer Creation, my only real rules is no Team Rocket (any other team is fine, though you might get crazy looks since they've all been disbanded >_>) and no Legendary Pokemon, which our first two entries seem to be A-OK on both those counts.

Actually, Team Galaxy are technically still active, although their members have significantly dropped due to the loss of their former leader.

My knowledge of Pokemon scares even me.

I'm probably going to do something relating to and about a professor or professor's assistant. The whole wandering around the world fighting monsters thing don't seem to glamorous when you could be kicking back, making base assumptions about behavior and psychology and getting little kids to send monsters to you.

Oh, and may I perhaps suggest the name Drunk Psyduck? Personally I find it hilarious. It may not be ideal, but I had to get that out before I lost the opportunity.

Drunk Psyduck? Heh. Very good.

On another note I've basically got my character sorted out. Just need to finish the drawing. since I don't have a certain style I'm probably going for the origional pokemon style. No I don't mean the TV show, I meant the Watercoloured art. I've even got the first ever Pokemon manga, before the character Ash was created (it was red and blue, obviously) so I hope I'm able to do that style. Should be up tommorrow.

Neat! But… if Warspritecomic has been promoting this all over the place without me knowing, that is great (and if so, thanks!) but I'm heading the project, not him >3>; At least… I'm pretty sure I am…

X3 That is excellent. I'm actually considering it, though people might think that it's 100% humor if I did D: I mean I have to have SOME plot elements people can take seriously :P Though there will be plenty of humor nonetheless.

Anyway, sketches should be released as early as tonight (Not likely though, it's probably going to be tomorrow), and I do like the designs for these trainers so keep it up =D

Can you take legendaries out of the tournament itself?

Nothing ruins pokemon like everyone having a legendary.

Trainer time!



Name: Ace

Age: 29

Occupation: Pokemon Ranger

Team:
“Daft'd” Farfetch'd (Level 91)
“Kindo” Nidoking (Level 76)
“Picasso” Smeargle (Level 36)
“Decidu” Torterra (Level 55)
“Torrent” Blastoise (Level 82)
“Chartle” Torkoal {Level 45)

Rankings: All Kanto/Jhoto/Hoenn badges, 5 badges into Sinnoh

Background: Ace was born in the harsh Orre region, but just before his tenth birthday, his parents sent him off to live with his Aunt in Kanto so he could become a successful Pokemon Trainer. His first pokemon was a wild Farfetch'd who he caught rooting through his Aunt's garden for a Leek, upon giving chase the Farfetch'd fell into a well where Ace promptly rescued him. Shortly after the two became best friends. Eventually after getting the Kanto and Jhoto badges (but never quite beating the Elite Four) Ace decided to devote himself to becoming a Pokemon Ranger. During his travels around the regions, he often stops at the gyms to test his battle strength.

Personality: Ace is very stubborn and rushes into situations where he could get hurt in his attempts to rescue pokemon. He has a bit of a weak-spot for food and is constantly eating. Ace has a bit of a stubborn streak and doesn't like to be ordered around. He frets constantly about Daft'd, much to Daft'd's chagrin. Some say that Ace babies his Farfetch'd.

Daft'd's Personality: Daft'd is unique in that he normally doesn't stay in a pokeball unless there is an emergency or he's tired. He also is unique in that he wears a scarf that Ace made out of the old shirt he used to wrap Daft'd in when they first met, it's a very important object to both of them. Daft'd is a bit arrogant and tough-headed and often gets into ‘fights’ with Ace. These fights are generally no more than simple roughousing or minor disagreements.

Hopefully that's enough details.

Heh. I'm glad that it was me you said was promoting the project. Alas I'm not, since I have only just made my trainer.

I'm in half a rush so I'll upload a sprite version of Garth for colour coding.

Direct link to the image http://img468.imageshack.us/img468/4726/pokemontrainer001gj3.jpg

edit: here's the sprite of him:
If you can't tell what colour is what, the trousers are a jeans colour, he's got blond hair, his hat's a golden yellow colour, his fingerless gloves and jacket is brown and his T-Shirt is A light-ish grey. Hope you understand that.

Name: Garth

Age: 17

Occupation: Traveller

Team:
“Speedy” Rattata (Level 74)
“Cyclops” Steelix (Level 54)
“Carbuncle” Persian (Level 42)
“Fitzimmons” Machamp (Level 53)
“Volcanus” Typhlosian (Level 57)
“Mimic” Ditto {Level 39)

Rankings: All of the Kanto badges

Background: He comes from the old Lavender town, near the Pokemon tower in Kanto. He comes from a deeply religious family but he left home when he was 13 to travel. He never used to want to be a pokemon trainer, but when he was attacked by a wild Rattata, a strange man came and caught it for him. After that he started to train his rattata and went and finished all of the Kanto badges. He usually stays at Pewter City to train his Rattata with the rock-type pokemon.

Personality: He is extremely stubborn because of his strict upbringing. He Only does things his way or else he just leaves. Even though he is very stubborn, he rarely gets angry and usually favours tactics over brute strength. He enjoys his Rattata's company so much he has stopped him from evolving for years.
