    Default Help for Generation 2021!

    The past few chapters of Generation 2021 have been pretty slow, since my idea pool's been running dry for quite some time now.

    Of course, you people wouldn't have noticed, because I had a backlog up till now. Now that the Bulbagarden version is caught up with the official version, I feel like I can actually start saying things here.

    Rachel and Ken have currently been to four cities with Gyms, and have come across Diabla.

    The problem is, I'm having trouble coming up with her motive. Diabla fights for female supremacy, and is there because of an abusive husband. But that seems like a poor excuse, and Ken calls her out on it. It just seems like I want some better villains, and some better excuses for what they do.

    As well, I'm running out of filler. Between the Gym challenges, they do a lot of other stuff (Costume contests FTW! ^_^) but now I'm kind of miffed as to what they should do next.

    (Also, Rachel only has one badge while Ken has none. But this is intentional, don't worry about that. It's the other stuff I'm worried about.)
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    I say you have a PETA-based group that is made up of normal people. Their main goal is to fool people into thinking training Pokemon hurts them, and, has so far succeeded quite well. Have them first be encountered in a so-far unexplored town, with propaganda out the wazoo. And their gym is under siege. One could also assume their excuse is quite relative, people will be creul to Pokemon (ie; every other evil team), and may make people think bad of trainers, identifying them with people who tried to destroy the world in the past. And, on a name...... PETP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Polemon).

    So, kind of like monsters from Poland? I bet you could make a lot of sausages out of those. Mmm, sausages...

    Or maybe they're just really tall and long monsters. Ones that you can use to hit others with. The higher the base stats, the longer they are. XD

    (Just playing with you. No worries )

    But... that's not what I was asking for... although this might help with the second instalment, for which I don't have a villainous team yet. Thanks anyway.

    Actually, come to think about it, I don't think Diabla's motive is the problem - it's her means of achieving that motive. Currently I have the stereotypical thing of using a legendary Pokemon to destroy the world. But I don't want to keep that - that seems too cliché.

    We're actually doing this for a fanmade game--*shot for discussing fanmade games*

    So you want ideas for new fillers between towns?

    Got it. Why not just have them get attacked by a Musharna and enter the Dream World? Or, have a sudden natural disaster (which are always fun).

    I'm not planning on introducing concepts from Gen.5 until the second instalment, which is to be written in 2011. It's titled "Generation 2024: The Dragon Trainer", as my signature says.

    This is because it was started before Gen.5 was even announced, and I don't want to suddenly put new things like that in there.

    Actually, fillers within towns would be good as well. So far they haven't been doing that much gymming, and that's on purpose. They escaped from an underground labyrinth in Pewter City, and had the contest there as well.

    I've introduced and used Pokemon and concepts from the Isshu games already in my fics, because they are pretty cool, and add to the depth of the world. For example, in Stay Tuned, Folks, I had Cyrus kill a Shimama with a chainsaw. In Tarnished Gold, I had Lucas visit Isshu.

    Okay, well. I've only had my fic go to one town. But my main character has battled Contesta as a Filler. My rivals show up a lot as well.

    They would, but you started your fic later than I did, when the Gen.5 information was already out. Mine is kind of burdened with continuity problems.

    I'm not trying to be defensive (if I am, tell me), but I'm just explaining why your suggestion might not work with what I have now.

    Damn.

    It's not that I don't appreciate your help, it's just... not what I'm really looking for.
