If you are still interested Jack perhaps a one shot with the three of us/two of us in another region would suit your taste better?
Nice thinking Khan ^^ I can't wait to get started but would you like to discuss plot in more detail first?
Haha... I was thinking it could totally swerve off of canon, and the Plasma King could anticipate the intrigues in his own counter-society and end up the real villain, willing to separate Pokemon from trainers at all cost. He'd even be upset enough about being human to seek ways to purge humanity by making them all monsters. This elevates the threat to humanity itself, and the natural order the Pokemon already have, which is in fact symbiotic to humans.
But on a smaller scale, the beginning... I wonder how our characters would meet. My character would be a bit reclusive in this foreign region, and unaware of its people and customs. That gives your character an advantage, while my character's hardcore training style means he could actually spar with your Pokemon without harming them, teaching them things no typical Pokemon battle could teach them, and teaching you unique things as a trainer.
I'd like to think that the meeting would start as a run of the mill challenge to a Pokemon battle on the road, and my character would say that he would spar your Pokemon, himself, rather than wear out his already exhausted Squirtle. That would be totally off the wall. But I'd like to see your own ideas, too. Thanks for bringing out an old favorite of mine!
