I've had this idea for a while and I wanted to ask my fellow writers of their opinions about this. Basically, the story I have in mind takes place in the real world, where Pokémon has become so big and popular, that a Virtual Reality MMORPG has been made. What I mean with Virtual Reality, is that the player don't control some avatar they own from a computer at home. No, THEY are the avatar inside a super computer, where they control their own actions, kinda like lucid dreaming.
I've already thought about how things like Pokémon battles works and things like the community etc. Battles works like in the games we all know and love, 4 moves per Pokémon, items, stats (that would be the difficult part for me (does a stats simulator exists somewhere in the Internet?)), levels, natures and abilities.
As for the NPC's we know in the games, I think it would be best that no NPC appears in the fic, everything is driven by players and staff alike. That would also involve making a brand new world instead of using the regions we already know. Staffs are obviously gym leaders, offer customer support, shopkeepers etc., while the players are allowed to build and make everything at their leisure, such as towns and buildings, some may even run shops or something similar.
As for story, you can probably guess that it involves something going wrong or something happening not supposed to happen.
Don't want to reveal too much if I decide to make a fic like this, so that's the gists of mostly everything.
