So I've been mulling the idea of trying a Pokemon fantasy AU based in a more Asian based world (Yoso and Telasa are more European based, but have a little bit of Asian influence). However, I only have a few concrete details so far:
--Ash playing the role of a wandering warrior (not necessarily a ronin) who has learned to channel magic through a flute (looks like and is played similar to a tin whistle, but sounds like a Chinese dizi) He mainly travels around the (as of yet unnamed) world driving away monsters and helping people out.
--He may or may not gain a party, as I'm still developing the idea
--Eventually, he learns of a plot to summon a demon king and takes it upon himself to stop it (by his own choice, not because destiny said so)
Again, the idea is still very rough, but what do you think, sirs (and madames)?
