Bunch of Questions

Post by Dandelion on Tue Dec 04, 2012 6:42 pm

Character Questions:

  • Can a character who as just hatched during the RP be allowed to say odd things? I have plans for a character whos quirk is that she says Onii-chan constantly (joke with myself) and other such things.
    Pokemon can battle from the moment they hatch, so I figure they can talk as well, (even if we are trying to take a more realistic approach) so she could could have an odd trait from the start?

  • Can a Pokemon cancel its own evolution? I believe its one of the idiot NPCs who says this but the trainer 'surprises' their Pokemon to cancel the evolution. If another Team member calls out to them or something, could they get 'distracted' and stop evolving?

  • If a character is placed in inactivity due to Safehouse breaching or instead of being harbed, can it get re-approved and return to its old team (in the last slot, if the team is open)?

  • If you adopt a character and they have a stock photo for an image, may you change it to a custom one when you re-post? Or change it when you re-post in general.
Profile Questions:

  • When your Pokemon evolves in the RP, are you allowed to edit the profile with the updated information right away or do you have to message someone first?
    And if you can update it this way, if they learned new moves in that time can they be changed as well?

  • If your Dual Profile separates, and it was previously two separate characters do you re-post new profiles for them both or get the old ones re-approved?

  • If there are errors on an approved profile, may you fix them? i.e. Spelling or coding errors.
  • Other Question(s):

  • When a single-type Pokemon evolves into a duel-type after receiving its base badge, may you request to switch the badge for the new type?
    -Or may you request for the evolutions badge type before they evolve?
    OR when an Eevee/Azurill evolves can they keep their normal type badge even though they are no longer a normal type?

    Character Questions;
    I do believe they can return to their old team, as long as it's open. And for adoption, you're allowed to change the image and such, but huge things like histories are only minor tweeks. (Unless given permission to. ^w^)

    Profile Questions;
    You can update it right away after evolution, I think. Most users do that and I've seen no trouble with it. owo Same for moves. When a dual get separated, you have to re-post their own individual profile and get them approved. And yeah, spelling and coding errors are fine to fix, but huge add-ons and changes like re-writing the history aren't allowed, I think.

    Other Questions;
    Yes you can! As long as the Pokemon is the type you're requesting to switch to, it's allowed. I'm not sure you can request the badge before evolution, however.
    As for keeping their badges, they should probably be changed, lol.

    Hope those were the answers you were looking for. <3

    --No, they are not allowed to speak when first hatched (at least more than a couple of words, broken sentences at most), and actually not allowed to be able to battle very well. They are just babies. Another member got reported for that...

    I believe there's some ambiguity regarding the evolution canceling thing. But there are quite a few profiles that haven't evolved, so I see no harm in it.

    Any new things that have happened due to rp, like evolution or a move being learned, will need to be edited into the old profiles of any separated characters. But you can use the old ones, if needed. They really don't get deleted. Simply revive it by posting a reply to the thread to move it to be activated.

    It is discouraged to edit approved profiles, but Mewtwo is pretty good with what he approves and what he doesn't. We mostly function on the honor code. You can edit for evolution, so I see nothing wrong with spelling errors --that should be taken care of before approval anyway XD But yeah, so long as you don't do anything drastic, it's fine.

    Of course, if Sui or any of the other admins have something different to say, I'd mind them lol.

    Thanks Lulu~

    @Phoenix
    She wouldnt be battling, or talking, at least not for a long time. It would be a bit before she did much of anything other then be carried. I was trying to make a reference there but I guess it failed ^^;
    I only want to know if she can say things that aren't learned after she begins to talk, but are trait to her.

    @lugia
    No, nothing major. ^^; But there is a error on one of my profiles I want to fix, but didnt know if I could
