DC Universe History

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

Pokémon Damage

It can be considered a Genre rule, but it should be used on any genre Pokémons appear. It is a new kind of damage, to add to Bashing and Killing damage. We call it Pokémon damage.

When Pokémons 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 Pokémon combats are resolved: with Pokémon damage.

When RAPs are done that would (if it was Killing Combat) reduce their current BODY condition to 0 or less, instead the character stays at Current Condition: 1. But they are Stunned for as many Phases as APs under 1 they would be. For example, Charmander is at BODY: 1 and suffers four RAPs of Pokémon Damage. He would then be Stunned for four Phases.

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