Charmander


Context

So yes, we have a cluster of Pokémon profiles. These are old – I guess they were done during the early 2000s. But heh, people like them.

Charmander is a fire Pokémon. He evolves into Charmeleon, then into Charizard.


Background

  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: N/A
  • Base Of Operations: N/A (Pokeball?)
  • Height: 2’ Weight: 18.5 lbs
  • Eyes: Dark Hair: None Skin: Orange


Powers and Abilities

Charmander is a lizard-like Pokemon who feels comfortable in a hot environment. He can project fire from his tail tip, that holds the fire of his life. If that flame was extinguished, Charmander would die.

He’s a versatile Pokemon, although in this stage of his life he’s not too powerful. But his potential to become the mighty Charizard makes him one of the most chosen Pokemons for trainers.


Description

It looks like a puffy mini version of a dinosaur, with cute looks, big eyes and small but pointy claws on his feet. He has four little fingers in each of his two hands.


Personality

Charmander is very loyal to his master, even if he treats him badly. He will try to obey him and help him in any way he can.


DC Universe History

Introducing the Pokemons in the DC Universe will not be any problem, as they are. A new kind of PC or NPC could be a Pokemon trainer, who could have been built as a normal human with 2-4 Pet Advantages involving the Pokemons he begins with (even 1: most trainers begin with just one basic Pokemon).

Pokemon Damage

It can be considered a Genre rule, but it should be used on any genre Pokemons appeared: there is a new kind of damage, to add to Bashing and Killing damage. We call it Pokemon damage: when Pokemons fight (or they attack other beings) they can choose to do it so in Bashing or Killing combat (although the later is very rare).

But they can also do it in the way most Pokemon combats are resolved : with Pokemon damage.

When damage is done to the opponent that would (if it was Killing Combat) reduce his current condition to 0 or less, instead the character stays at Current Condition: 1 and is stunned for as many rounds as APs under 1 he would be : per example, Charmander is at BODY: 1 and suffers 4 APs of Pokemon Damage. He would then be stunned for 4 rounds.

On a regular basis, that means losing the combat if it was a Pokemon fight.
