Crazy future episode ideas, the end of a friend's character arc, and oh! A game, you say? You can hear the whole episode here, or keep reading for game details..
All right, Team! We're gonna play Fantasy Pokemon League! I'll break down the rules more later, but here's the basic idea:
Everyone who wants to play will draft 4 characters (at least 1 human
and 1 pokemon) and 1 event and 1 attack, for a total of 6. When the
Silver Conference episodes air, you will all earn points based on what
happens. Such as:
Battle Points: You get a point when one of your characters appears in a Pokemon battle. Bonus point if they win the match.
Hero Points; You get a point if one of your characters save someone.
Romance Points: You get a point if one of your characters falls in love, or someone falls in love with them.
Event Points: In addition to characters, you draft an event, such as
the team rocket motto, wobbofett popping out of its pokeball,
handshakes/highfives, etc. If one of these events happen, you get a
Attack Points: Anytime your drafted attack is used (ex. Thundershock) by any pokemon, you get a point.
Random Points: There will also be a few random or bonus events that you can earn points from.
I'll explain the rules more, and write up a full breakdown of
everything available for drafts later this weekend, and of course, I'll
explain it on the show. Obviously, certain main characters stand to
rack up a lot of points, so there might be handicaps associated with
This is mostly for fun and giggles, but there is a PRIZE! I
knit small dolls, and to the winner, I will knit a little Ash Ketchum
doll and mail it anywhere in the world. So, a little incentive.
you want to play? Please let me know in the comments! We need at least
three people playing for this to work. I don't think I'll need to
impose a max limit on players, but please put your name in the comments
so I have a basic idea!
