View Full Version : Limestone Version (FR Base, Idea)

8th May 2014, 10:00 PM
Hey. I've been kinda occupied, but I've had an idea cooking in the back of my mind for a while now. Ever since I was little, I had always wondered what it'd be like if there were Pokemon where I live. Now, since reaching a logical conclusion that they can't possibly obey the laws of physics or conservation of matter, I've settled for something smaller: A hack based on my state. I'm just putting the idea down, I'm not sure if I really wanna go for it. but...

Idea: Limestone Version (lame name, but it works for now)

Base: FireRed 1.0 (and perhaps MrDollSteak's cool patch?)

Region: "Tejos" (name also lame, based on most of Texas with a little of Louisiana)

13-15 Continental Cities and Towns, with access to several islands post-game (based on Hawaii - the Olahu Archipelago)
Climates and terrain varying from dry canyons, snowy forests, and calm beaches
8 Gyms of varying types (including a dual-type gym), rematches done in a fashion similar to HG/SS
Proposed Bonus House containing a set of teams centered around different strategy types (including two cameo teams)

Pokemon: 417 Old Species across the current 6 Gens, with some concepts for Fakemon (if they'd be interesting enough for people)

Potential Legendaries include the Winged Mirages, Mew, Lugia, Celebi, the Eon Duo, the Weather Trio, Jirachi, Heatran and the Sea Angels (though, Phione isn't quite a legendary...)

Plot: While the games have become increasingly wild in their evil teams and events, I wanted to take a simpler path with this game.

Starting out in a rural area (Possibly Route 1?), you (the player) and your friend witness a bunch of jerks harassing their neighbors for their land. Pissed at it, they set off on a journey to become strong enough to protect their homes (and later the region) from this group. As you continue on your journey, you'll end up thrashing the gang multiple times before finally confronting the head behind all of the troubles. Even after the Elite Four are down, you may have to deal with remnants of the organization.

I'll return in a little while with a little more detailed write up of some of these things. A mock up map is attached. It doesn't have the current divisions in the routes (there's a total of 19 Mainland Routes, 13 Cities/Towns not including the League) but it gets the point across.

Let me know what you all think.

Edit: I've cleaned up my list of proposed fakemon and included them here. Most have a Typing, Ability, and number of members in their Evolutionary line. Still, there's plenty of room for improvement.

All the names you're using are pretty good. (I.e. Game, region, towns, fakemon) So don't worry if you think they're lame.
