Hoping you all noticed this, but Furoh's now open. I think we've got everything we need to run well and efficiently except for the actual gyms and stuff, but that can wait for a while. If you have profiles from the old RP you want, don't worry, they aren't gone. I just moved them to the new archives. If you want it, PM me, Velyoukai, or Chore Boy, and we'll fetch it for you.

Any other concerns or questions, just ask here. I personally will be happy to answer them.

QUOTE("Starter pokemon thread")
Dark, Dragon, Ghost, Psychic, and Steel are all Restricted types, due to either a lack of suitable starters, or because of uber power.

I'm assuming you wanted to have four per type? Because I can think of several suitable Ghosts, Darks, and Psychics right off the top of my head.

Also, could one of ya'll PM me my old profile, please?

Not to sound like I'm complaining (I'm sure it could be interpreted that way, but it's not intentional. I likely wouldn't end up using one, even if they were available,), but I don't really understand why there can't be psychic starters, there are more than enough, even assuming you only use single type pokemon (with the sole exception of Bulbasaur, I believe, but that's canon so it doesn't count).

Abra and Ralts would be the obvious, but there are several others that could work as well (Drowzee, Wynaut, Mime Jr., and Spoink all come to mind.)

The only really 'uber power' ones would be Dragons... There are plenty of non-uber psychics, darks, and ghosts. Steel is the only one with a lack of possible starters, maybe dark too, haven't looked :/

EDIT: I looked, and it turns out Ghosts only have 3 (Ghastly would be the 4th, but is Ghost/Poison, not pure Ghost), and Dark and Steel only have one starter-eligible pokemon, s I guess there really aren't enough. I don't see any reason for there to be no Psychic starters, though, there are more than enough for that.

EDIT2: Actually, there's already another, non-canon dual-type starter in there, Snover. And on closer inspection Croagunk, Baltoy, Geodude, and some others. I was assuming they had to be single type without really thinking, but since you have quite a few dual-type starters already, there's no reason some of the others couldn't be used. Ghastly/Shuppet/Duskull/Misdreavus for ghost, Houndour/Murkrow/Poochyena/Stunky for dark, just as some ideas. I don't see how anything but dragons could be considered too powerful to be starters, and there are enough possibilities for the others (barring perhaps steel, which could also be considered a bit overpowered as a starter, though not to the extent of dragons). But then again, this isn't my decision, so I'll leave it at that.



And on a completely unrelated note, I'm finding it very difficult to write a profile when nothing on the entire continent is named yet, besides the one city whose name is mentioned in the history. Hopefully you can get those done soon, I don't think I'll be able to finish mine until you do, it just doesn't feel right trying to write it with directions instead of names and stuff x_x.gif

I'm just not a big fan of those types as starters. If enough people start wanting them, I may add psychic to the list, but just that. I also tried to go for three tier evolutions most of the time, but when I couldn't I just settled.

I'll think up and propose some names in the staff board right now. Thanks for that reminder. ^_^.gif

Also, about the starters thing: We've picked 'em, and we're more than likely gonna leave 'em be. Constant fluctuation of rules and tons of member influence on a hundred different things is what killed the last RP, and I don't want us to shut down over whether or not someone wants to use a psychic type. irritated.gif

I was, for one, hoping that dark would be added to the list, but I agree that anything with an immunity might be a little over powered.

... And now that I've said that, the would leave out ground (immune to electric), normal (immune to ghost), flying (immune to ground) and steel (immune to poison).

Still, if what there is is all there is, that's fine. I can catch a houndour later, yes?

Yeah, nothing says that you can't go catch one. Most of the pokemon in the game are available for capture in the wild.

ok.. so according to falkyn, the pokemon we catch has to be in a place those pokemon ca be found...

What if, I give a very good reason for a chikorita(for instance) being in a swamp?
Is that ok? something like, she was being chased by gulpins and grimers! xD

What was it doing in the swamp in the first place? Being chased is just a convenient plot device.

Just use your common sense. If you have doubts, PM a mod, and they'll tell you.

So...it IS open, right? Cause once I'm done my profile, I kinda want to RP...:/

I'd complain about the starters, but as long as Eevee isn't there, I'm cool with it...since EVERYBODY seemed to want to start with Eevee in the last two iterations of this RP :/

I have a rule that I generally follow. The more people complain, the less likely I am to give them what they want. I respond better to well-thought out requests. And yes, we are open. People are just being slow to RP. *sigh*

Multiple things I need to say right now.

First off, I'm glad for all the people who have helped put activity into this RP. All the mods have worked hard to make it what it is, and it warms my heart to know that people appreciate that.

Second, I'm pinning this topic and just using it to make announcements from now on. Woo!

Third: Everybody say hello to our latest mod, Kilvaer! Yes, I know what you're thinking. Don't we have enough already? But you need to take into account the fact that Mewtation, Dunsparce, and some others are kind of...not active, so I don't really consider them Furoh mods. Hopefully, you all will welcome Kilvy with open arms, because I know he'll make an excellent addition to the team.
