I am going to try to create a story in the writing lounge forum. The basic concept is there is no Pokemon but they are known about. I'm not sure if the setting is going to be a futuristic version of an existing area (Kanto, Johto, so forth) or based in our own world. The humans are inspired by Pokemon and my character will design a suit similar to Charizard. I am hoping for one or two other writers. If I get two more, maybe we could pick up Blastoise and Venusaur. The outfits will be hi tech but not sure how far. That can be discussed with other writers. In theory, the three covers air, water, and land. If we stay with the Kanto theme, there could be Team Rocket showing back up using their classical Pokemon for inspiration. Again, this will be humans dressing up like Pokemon. In a way, this could be cosplay but with crime fighting. So I am looking for at least one more writer if not two. Having a third additional one for the Team Rocket side be nice.
One idea is for the "suits" to be closer to mecha style instead of cloth with gadgets. My problem, still, is how does the humans find out about Pokemon. If the story goes future, it will be a long ways into it and the explanation of Pokemon not existing is probably a virus wide effecting all Pokemon. Any attempt at cloning via fossils only brings back normal creatures without the intelligence or desire for battle. The other idea of using more real world example is probably still future but going off of the games\cards.
I will leave the other Pokemon choices to the other writers. If they want to choose other Kanto Pokemon or starters from other regions, I would have no problems. Since it would be more mecha futuristic, doing a temporary power up via mega evolution would be possible.
