Pokémons are one of the biggest pop culture thing in recent decades. During the 1990s we made DCH stats for some of them because heh, why not.

  • Eyes: Red Hair: Violet


Powers and Abilities

Rattata is a rat-like Pokémon, very fast and sneaky.


Description

It’s one of the most common Pokémons in the wilderness. It looks like a violet rat with big front teeth, long whiskers and a twisted tail.


Personality

Wild, untamed and sometimes violent in an underhanded way.


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 Pokemon trainer, who could have been built as a normal human with 2-4 Pet Advantages involving the Pokémons he begins with (even 1: most trainers begin with just one basic Pokémon).

Pokemon Damage

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