Guys, no need to cry about how Blastoise has a horrible Smiley.
@GhostPony: If someone (I'm hopeless) helps me, we can battle on Pokemon Online.
Ok, so a few (more like a lengthy explanation of things... Its not just a speedrun. Like the amazing race you will have to do certain challenges.
Although, for me its going to be pretty hard to make them.
Resetting is needed.
So, in case you haven't watched the Amazing Race here's how it goes:
We start out with 12 teams of 2 (in this case 8-12 teams of 1).
The teams have to travel to a certain country. They get many different challenges along the way, with certain other obstacles. The key to the amazing race is to finish all the challenges in order and meet at the pitstop. The last team at the pitstop will be eliminated, unless at one of the pre-set non elimination pit stops. (This will be different from just last being eliminated)
So there will be a different challenges that will differ among each Route. A route is the distance between two pitstops.
Clues: Clues are what will be found along each Route. They will give you info or where you must go next and what you must do at each area. Clues will hold info on the following of each.
Reading this: To make sure your reading this please place a Ditto and a mew.
Detour: A Detour will be on the Clues. They give you the decision between two challenges. You will get to choose which one you do. It you do not complete this challenge or give it up you must wait for one person to pass you at the pitstop. You do have the choice to go back and change which challenge that you are going to do.
U Turn: A U turn is given to the first person to complete a Detour on some routes. A U turn that is given allows the the owner to make another Contestant go back and complete the second challenge in A Detour. This MUST be used.
Road Block: This is a single challenge that gives no choice and must be completed. If you do not complete this challenge you must wait for 2 people to pass you when you arrive at the pitstop.
Fast Forward: There will be only be two of these in the game. This challenge is brutal. It can be bypassed if you so choose. So of your the first person at a Clue, you may leave it to the second person. If you accomplish this challenge you will get to skip straight to the pitstop. (But you will still have to beat what ever boss is at the end of the route.) you just get to skip all the challenges.
Intersection: This will be out of game challenge. This will happen twice. You will be partnered with a random contestant. Together you must PM each other. I will set a challenge, the pair must complete it. Simple.
Penalty: This will be made when a contestant breaks the rules. This is a large offence and will be taken harshly... I suggest you don't break the rules or you will be demolished later on.
Double Length legs: These legs will be... Double length
My Rules added to make it more pokemonish:
Big Boss: A boss will lie at the end of each pitstop. Most of the time these will be a gym leader, Elite 4, Champion.
Theme Routes: Certain Routes will have a Theme while crossing them for the first time. Certain themes may be: Nuzlocke, Colour Catches, No Catches, Must run from every battle e.t.c.
E.g. I am going to use Nuzlocke Theme on a Route with poisonous pokemon. Hopefully one of you gets poisoned and the pokemon dies, permanently.
Pit Stop: So the pitstop will be right after your beat the boss. The last two to get too the pitstop after beating the boss will have to battle. The winner continues, the loser... Well. You get EE LIM INA TED.
Travelling through the game: I'm sorry to say this will be a slow game. It will be played in tiny increments... But I'm hoping to make it fun.
Although you will have a lot of money in game before each pitstop and in each city I will set a limit to how much you can buy. E.g. In Nacrene you may only spend 2000 pokedollars on items.
Buying and Breeding: You may not Breed, you can not buy pokemon from the game corner. You can not use the Safari Zone at ALL.
That's all I can think off to make this game harsh right now... I'll edit in some rules if I can think of any.
THIS IS GONNA BE BRUTAL
