Ok, lets get all of our ideas in one place shall we?

Rate this Entry
Ok guys, if you have any ideas in regards to KPU post them as comments in this blog, and we'll try and possibly implement them into the "new" KPU.

Also, I'd like to say a few things. First, I'd like to give a taste at what is coming in this new RP that is definite, some of you might recall the "magical forest o' evolution stones" well, we will be implementing shops. Well what good are shops when you don't have money? Well, we are also going to be implementing a monetary system where you can use your money however you want to! Next, the rule system is going to revamped by Shiay to kinda control alot of the for lack of a better word, shitty posts. We want to strive to become a great RP and those kinds of posts aren't going to help. Also, we will be extending a hand to all RPers who have been banned/have retired and allow them to come back in with a totally clean slate regardless of past offenses. We also will have a new Character Upkeep system, that will allow more creativity and possibly help some people.

Next, I'd like to apologize to everyone. When this started out I came into this expecting it to be easy, but with my co-GM's being less than helpful and having only myself planning the initial structure of the RP and receiving ideas from people who have never really RPed, the end result was ok. It continued to be ok for a while as I carried on the best I possibly could. Well, after a while, I became Sally Sob story central, I pretty muchly gave up on this, seeing as I was receiving basically no help from anyone. Sure, Shiay eventually came along but even she couldn't do everything for me. In short, boo hoo me, I should have tried to do more, I guess what I mean to say is that I'm sorry.

Well, let all the ideas come on in.

EDIT: I only ask one more thing. Keep it to this blog, please no more blogs, as I did somethings that I'd have rather not have done after Crossblade's blog. So please, no more KPU blogs for a while~ =D

    I'll post as many good and bad ideas as I can think of. Bad ones shall hopefully encourage other people to post their better ones. =D

    *A start of year dance.
    *Field/Camping trip to the Machina Ruins as seen in Movie 12 (since KPU is located in Machina)
    *Berry Gardening 101
    *Apricorn Pokeball Creation
    *Pokeblock/Puffin/Apricorn shake baking class
    *Lesson: Wild Pokemon are friends too, not just exp or potential teammates (better title needed)
    *The Art of Battling/Contesting and Working the Crowd
    *Survival Training 101
    *Berries and Medicine in the Wild
    *Pokemon Breeding (raising, feeding, taming... not what's done in the day care)
    *Lesson/Discussion: Pokemon and You: The key to trusting your Pokemon
    *Pokemon Biology

    I have a few ideas.
    * Instead of having classes 3 days a week, we have 6 days a week. The students already have enough time each day considering how short the lessons are (They last around 5 hours seeing as it started after breakfast and ended mid-afternoon...) so...why not?
    * DEBATE CLUB. Seriously, Solaris suggested this in jest, but I think it's a fine idea.
    * Field trips are a must, seeing as people battle more outside the classroom than in it. The classroom could be more of a gathering area, and the class goes out from there.

    P.S. 90% of our student population is male, my dear Crossblade. That dance thing would work well otherwise but...yeah.

    EDIT: Aie, if you were that busy, why not force us APs into being slaves asking us APs to help out a little? Increasing the area of contact between the load and the surface will decrease pressure.

    Okay, me and SE (EVen though hes ban now, you said we'll bring him back) talked a while back, meaning a long time ago, were talkig in IRC, and decided to make some cliques. And now, a LIST!

    *Field Trips! (To catch rare pokemon, suck as the starters and such)
    *Cliques sound awesome.
    *Classes 6 days a week, otherwise, those 4 days get REALLY boring...
    *More Pre-Subejects for like cordinators, battlers.
    *MORE TEACHERS! This is a must, since evkl (Not sure if he is a GM anymore.) I haven't seen him in KPU in a long time. Shiay, she is still not very available, and Aie has real things, so more GMs is a must.
    *A Time Out or Out of Character thread, I mean, I thought that we were beyond just OOC posts, but, I was wrong.

    We'll talk this over. Sounds like a good idea, honestly.

    *Berry Gardening 101
    *Apricorn Pokeball Creation
    Way ahead of you on this one.

    *Pokeblock/Puffin/Apricorn shake baking class
    Interesting idea -- though I don't think there should really be a class on this, personally. After all, kids in the anime and games can probably be making better Blocks and Poffins that a vast majority of people. Perhaps something will be made so that students can have those things created >__> But it's not going to be a 'class'.

    *Lesson: Wild Pokemon are friends too, not just exp or potential teammates (better title needed)
    *The Art of Battling/Contesting and Working the Crowd
    *Survival Training 101
    *Berries and Medicine in the Wild
    *Pokemon Breeding (raising, feeding, taming... not what's done in the day care)
    *Lesson/Discussion: Pokemon and You: The key to trusting your Pokemon
    *Pokemon Biology
    These are all things that can be implemented into the classes that we have at hand. Thanks for your input. Aie and I will discuss this along with the other staff members of KPU.

    If we can kick the people playing the teachers to be doing these things, I can see this working a lot more effectively. As it stands, there's a lot some of our staff that hasn't done anything.

    * DEBATE CLUB. Seriously, Solaris suggested this in jest, but I think it's a fine idea.
    Opening a subforum for just clubs in general may be something we open. Though clubs are going to be run through Admins and APs before they get the okay to get posted in the subforum if we go get that okay'd.

    * Field trips are a must, seeing as people battle more outside the classroom than in it. The classroom could be more of a gathering area, and the class goes out from there.
    Still... something that needs to be taken into further discussion.

    EDIT: Aie, if you were that busy, why not force us APs into being slaves asking us APs to help out a little? Increasing the area of contact between the load and the surface will decrease pressure.
    .-. You know... it'd be nice if the AP acted on their own without the say of an admin guiding them every step of the way, honestly. Mean, you all should get the gist of what's going on -- so why not act upon it when you see certain things being brought up and whatnot? It's not that hard .-.

    SE's actually going to be one of our new APs.

    *Field Trips! (To catch rare pokemon, suck as the starters and such)
    ... Okay... from here on, every time someone suggests 'field trip', I will facepalm due to it's being overstated.

    *Cliques sound awesome.
    No... No they do not. >__> Besides, cliques form almost instantaneously in schools and whatnot with groups of friends. I don't know why we would have something formed and revolving around 'cliques'.

    *Classes 6 days a week, otherwise, those 4 days get REALLY boring...
    There's a reason we have it for those amount of days.

    *More Pre-Subejects for like cordinators, battlers.
    Elaboration?

    *MORE TEACHERS! This is a must, since evkl (Not sure if he is a GM anymore.) I haven't seen him in KPU in a long time. Shiay, she is still not very available, and Aie has real things, so more GMs is a must.
    Asrai is becoming our new Arts teacher, I'm taking over Tactics. >__> There's some things that we have to work out, and yes, staff is one of them. Though I know that a lot of people aren't going to just magically 'poof' and become one. Why? Because we're going to be choosing the players that we can trust, are actually rather decent at RPing and can carry out most of the things for KPU.

    *A Time Out or Out of Character thread, I mean, I thought that we were beyond just OOC posts, but, I was wrong.
    Again, something we're way ahead of people on.

    Ok... while you make some valid points some are really... not valid.

    Point # 1: Other than basically wanting rare and powerful Pokemon to rule the RPG, there is nothing wrong with this.
    Point # 3: We have other things planned for the RP other than school.
    Point # 4: I agree with this, however, how we had designed the subjects, they were like umbrellas covering all things like that. AKA Arts = Coordinators, Tactics = Battling...
    Point # 5: We will be bring a few more people into various positions, so hold your Horsea :P

    Other than that great ideas~ :3
  6. Dragoon Rider's Avatar
    Also, this is more of a question though, but still...

    Are we gonna get the honor system going soon, like you said in the very beginning of the RP?

    EDIT: Just to see what'll happen, Field Trips sound awesome, honestly. Whoever said it first, Crossblade, good idea. :)

    EDIT2: Aie, by rare poekmon, and everyone else, I mean pokemon tht you wouldn't find at the KPU, such as Charmander, Cyndaquil, and other things, I mean, in past Michina, for those who saw the movie, the Johto starters were there, but, just one of each, so I'm not sure...

    I'm aware the dance idea has it's flaws; as I said, I willingly posted bad ideas too. =)
    However, keep in mind that those who post wouldn't necessarily be the only students in the entire school, there can be NPC students too. (This can give an excuse for late joiners too, saying they were at school the whole time, just not being in the spot light)

    The fact that normal kids make their own puffins/pokeblocks and it not needing a class; remember, normal kids don't pay money to go to a school to learn about Pokemon, they do it for free, as opposed to the teenagers that are paying lots of money to learn anything. I just think it might be funny having antics in a kitchen setting. Odd colors, strange smells, flour flying everywhere. Hopefully no one will get burned or poisoned and need to go to the hospital though. :p

    More ideas:
    *Discision: Knowing your weaknesses, accepting them and overcoming them.
    *Strategy comparison and analyzation. There are several videos on youtube about amazing Pokemon Battles (example) which could set up for "interactive" lessons. (And it might help people play pokemon games in RL better too)
    *Holiday celebrations. If need be, make them up so we aren't biased to real life religions. Wintereenmas, Snowflake Day, Life Day ...pick one or make another one up.
    *Pokeatholon with Trainer sports day. I forget what it's called in elementary school, but remember when they'd take everyone outside, and an entire class would compete together and at the end, the winners would get ribbons? Do that. Make the trainers have to compete with their Pokemon though. Get the out of shape kids in shape. (Where are the chubby trainers for comical relief?)
    *Community Service with your Pokemon! Have the students go out to a park with their Pokemon and pick up litter, play with kids, whatever. It's been stated in the anime, Pokemon love kids and helping people.

    That is called Field Day, at least where I went last year. But, I sort o' don't see this happening, but, I could see Gym Class, and other Extra Curricular Activities...

    EDIT: Something crossed my mind in Crossblade's last blog, and only one. Anyways, that is the whole '4 Lucario's' thing. Crossblade, here is my answer. IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE ANIME, there are 3 DIFFERENT Lucario's. Lets ount, shall we? Okay, there was Sir Arron's, in some movie number. Also, there was Riley, and his ONLY POKEMON, Lucario. Lets not forget the Gym Leader, Maylene's Lucario, yes, they were also in the game, but, this is THE ANIME. ANother thing, in the game, not sure if Anime, in Johto Safari Zone, you can catch UNLIMITED RIOLU's. You know, last I checked, Riolu evolve when you show frendship in daytime. So, you know, this means UNLIMITED LUCARIO if you want it. There is nothing wrong with Lucario. Just because it stared in a movie does it make it legendary, or 'unfair' to have. Is it 'unfair' to have an Absol, since italso starred in a movie? No, it does not, this is SO fair, and so are psuedo-legendaries. You know, LANCE has a bunch of those, and even Cynthia has one. Oh wait, she also has a TOGEKISS and a LUCARIO in the games, maybe not anime, but games. So let me count, one, two, three, four LUCARIO. So, it is NOT unfair to have 4 Lucario in a University, and if you do, sorry if you didn't get one. Also, some ANIME characters have many pre-evolved form of those 'one of' pokemon. Also, in the SINNOH UNDERGROUND, you can find a lot of fossils, including the DOME FOSSIL, in which OMANTYE comes from. There has never been a Porygon in the Anime in AMERICA, or its evolutiuons, so I don't know. BUT, sinmce Silph Co. made them, I would think they MASSED-PRODUCED THEM.I can't sa anything about Rotom, since it is in a TV, but in the GAMES, you can catch AS MANY AS YOU WANT. I mentioned Togekiss already, and oh yeah, the Tyrogue! How the hell is a Tyrogue there supposed to be one of it?! Dude, it evolves into Hitmonchan, Hitmonnlee, and Hitmontop, which I have seen so many times in the ANIME.

    *NOTE* Look at the stuff that is bold, italicaized, and underlined, along with things that are CAPITALIZED.

    ...Darkrider, your argument is invalid. The anime is filled of Mary Sues as it is, you're only pushing it. Plus, it's because so many high-class trainers possess Lucario (Yes, that is the plural) to the point that Lucario has become a Mary-Sue possession. In the Sinnoh Underground, you don't find LOTSOFFOSSILSLOL, it took me quite awhile to find my Old Amber. In the games, you can only catch one Rotom, you can fight as many as you want. If you want to rant, try not to make it a Did Not Do The Research, alright?

    Also, there's more to being a Pokemon trainer than just rare/strong Pokemon. I thought the Gen IV games would've hammered that into your head by now.

    EDIT: Darkrider, just because you can get something it doesn't mean you will. Riolu is listed as "Rare" in the Bulbapedia page, and as some user stated, it appears that the rumors were true; the rarer the Pokemon, the more likely they are to be in trainer's hands.

    Kids in the anime are also 10 and out learning Pokemon training for free. The university is full of kids much older than that PAYING, likely large amounts of money, to learn Pokemon things.
    Following your argument, it would be pointless for a Pokemon University to even exist.
    Besides, I can imagine lots of fun antics happening in a kitchen. Flour flying everywhere, TOO sour/dry/spicy foods being made and grossing out people/pokemon. Hopefully no one gets burned or poisoned and sent to the hospital.

    Arron and Riley are the same person. I know the hat can be confusing because it's different, but if you look hard, you'll notice.
    The hat is very tricky, I know.
    Seriously though, they were also separated by THOUSANDS of years. On top of that, all three trainers are VERY skilled. Skilled trainers wouldn't need to attend a school for Pokemon. (The anime only had the school because there are so many schools in games, it was over due anyways).
    The same goes for pseudo-legendaries. You should only expect to see those in expert trainer rosters. Expert trainers don't attend schools. I'm guessing you missed my rant about Lance wouldn't need to go to a school? (It was in the KPU forums) He might TEACH at a school, but he would be the last person to attend it.
    And as Opt said, anime = Mary Sue.
    It'd be a waste of time if every show it showed Ash fighting the equivalent of the NPC trainers you find in the game. Boy, I'd sure look forward to those trainers with the 6 Magikarp! Or what about the kids with the 3 Caterpie, 1 Weedle, a Metapod and a Caterpie? There's what? Three of them in a row at least? Awesome episodes there! And then don't forget the year's worth of Hiker battles! Geodude, Geodude, Onix, Machop, Geodude, Geodude, Geodude, Machop, Geodude, Onix...

    Your reply probably belongs more in my blog than Aie's. I only have time to reply to 1 before work, so expect a mega reply there in... 8-10 hours. First day of work in 10 months, they gave me a start time for the first day only and no end time. :p

    And so my whole post here isn't a waste:

    KPU SUGGESTION
    *Field Trips!(I'm kidding Shiay!)
    *Fossil Digging. Not allowed to resurrect them, because they are in an area planted by the school (and they're likely plastic) but it's more for the activity.
    *Mascaraed Ball. Not the best idea, but it can be fun getting creative thinking up costumes. (Remember, there should be hundreds of NPC students also, so the sausage fest of RPers don't have to dance with each other)

    I'm surprised no one's brought up final exams yet.

    Sciences: I'm still thinking about this one. It's such a broad subject that it's very hard to pick a theme for the final exam.
    Arts: Something akin to a "Grand Festival".
    Tactics: A tournament, naturally!
  12. Crossblade's Avatar
    More ideas:

    A carnival could be done any time of the year. (Yeah, I'm stealing Glitch's idea), have most of the performances done by upper year or graduated students. To keep the GM's from being bogged down, regular RP'ers can PM them write ups of actions to be reviewed, then the GM can post them as a quick copy and paste as a background activity. It will let people write about Pokemon their character doesn't have, and get them excited if their write up is approved.

    A migrating herd of Pokemon is due to pass the school. Go sit out in the cold and wait for it to happen. Then write a report about it. (Rp'ers will write a short Intro and then Conclusion in the final posts of that thread, and to save space, put it in spoilers). Students will be allowed to catch only 1 of these Pokemon max; unless this migration is for breeding, then none.

    A lesson on Pinkin berries from the Pinkin islands. Don't feed too many to your Pokemon, students!

    An unwanted flock/herd/group of Pokemon take up home in the school grounds. Students! Help think up ways to get rid of them! But without hurting them.

    An overarching storyline or two would be nice to help people develop their characters in different situations. IE School fundraiser, mysterious happenings, letters sent to some trainers of the university describing of an elite club, an evil team syndicate that infiltrates the university as moles, events/battles/wars/sports against the other universities, the dorms get destroyed in a freak accident and the entire student body has to live in tents/at the pokemon center/good hearted people's homes until they can be repaired, etc..

    Battles with restrictions or obstacles! IE: A battle ground consisting entirely of poles stuck out of the ground. The pokemon who falls off of them is disqualified.
    or
    A battle played inside a fan forced mini tornado
    or
    a battle that is played in pitch black darkness to simulate a battle in a cave

    Links to some rping guides such as : http://www.menewsha.com/forum/community/roleplaying-forum/ooc-topics/49509-updated-12-30-anti-munch-project-rp-guide.html

    ( I know I was guilty of some of them) and
    http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/barton-ooc/barton-ooc-roleplaying-guides-resources/t.44682935_1/
    to help those that are starting out.

    Lesson Ideas: Evolution Ethics
    Pokemon Ethics
    Advanced classes
    Biology and the energy transfer and chemical reactions of pokemon

    Graduations?

    And maybe clubs as well? Each approved club would get its own thread in a subforum where rpers could go and do their own thing at a specified (in rp) time? IE: Game club, Battle training club, trading club, contest club, rocket club, host club, money making club, fishing club, cheering club, ouendan club, relax club, fan clubs, sewing clubs, fashion clubs, nightime ghost hunter's club, fight club, etc. The possibilities are endless!

    The clubs could be held on the days where there aren't any classes or something like that.

    Also, maybe holiday themed events?

    So, how's progress coming along for the RPG?

    I'd suggest against having too many active threads/clubs. That would just dilute all the action way too much.

    I also think there should be way less emphasis on trainers and coordinators. My character is neither, and isn't really interested in becoming one either. I think classes shouldn't focus on battling too heavily, as there are also lots of ways to interact with pokemon that don't involve fighting (breeding, photography, sketching).

    I hadn't thought of that. I suggest there be a ratio of active members to clubs so that they will have an optimal amount of usage if they were to be implemented.
