5702 in-depth character profiles from comics, games, movies


Background

  • Base Of Operations: Grassy areas (Pokeball ?)
  • Height: 1’ Weight: 4 lbs
  • Eyes: Dark Feathers: Golden, green, red and light grey


Powers and Abilities

Spearow has a harder time than Pidgey to fly, but it has the aid of its “Mirror move” to cope with possible attackers, and its beak as a resort against the feeblest enemies.


Description

A big small-bird with short wings and eathers of many colours. It is much more agressive than Pidgey, as is a wild Pokemon.


Personality

Spearows are almost never trained, because they are too wild and independant. When in the wilderness, on the other hand, they work quite well with other Spearows, and use to band together against Pidgeys, specially when they have a Fearow who leads them.


DC Universe History

Introducing the Pokemons in the DC Universe will not be any problem. 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.
