Pokemon GO has just been released worldwide, and already new features are being tested for the game. The feature being tested by you, the players, is the battle function. You all volunteered to help test it, and have been placed together in a testing area so that it is easy to reach each other. Unfortunately, the losers of the battles seem to die in real life, and you are getting no responses from the overseers…

Gotta Kill ‘Em All is a free-for-all QF where everyone starts off with a kill role. To win, you simply need to be the last man standing. Cycles will last 24 hours, and rollover will take place at 11pm GMT (7pm EST, 4pm MST, 9am ACT). A lynch will occur every cycle. Vote in Red and retract in Green. Only one vote is required for a lynch, and in the case of a tie, a coin will be flipped. Personal messages are not allowed in this game. There will be only three Known Pokemon. Unknown Pokemon will be introduced to the game when the following number of players sign up: 7, 11, 15, 19, and 24. Unknown Pokemon exist outside of the base type effectiveness chart, and may or may not have different win conditions.

Not Very Effective


Not Very Effective: Deals miniscule damage. If a Pokemon is hit with a Not Very Effective Attack, they take damage equal to the attacking Pokemon's strength.

Not Effective: Deals no damage. If a Pokemon is hit with a Not Effective attack, they escape unscathed.

Super Effective: Deals critical damage. If a Pokemon is hit with a single Super Effective attack, they receive 5x damage.

When a Pokemon's Hit Points are depleted to 0, they are defeated.


When you attack a Pokemon you will be informed how effective it was in your GM PM. When you are attacked by a Pokemon you will be informed how effective it was, as well as how many attacks you have sustained so far.

Sign ups will end on August 2nd, 2016, at 11pm GMT (7pm EST, 4pm PST, 9am ACT): the game will begin shortly thereafter

Edit 1: Just to say my story through the tags has already been messed up, so this is not a good omen.

Important Game Information

  • Strength (STR): Each Known Pokemon will have 1 STR. Unknown Pokemon may have the same, more or less STRSTR determines the amount of damage a Pokemon deals.

Questions and Clarifications

  • Q: Can I choose my starting Pokemon? A: No; like all elimination games, roles (Pokemon) are assigned randomly.
  • Q: What happens in the case of a three-way-tie or greater? A: A relevant die will be rolled to determine who is lynched.
  • Q: Are we going to learn the name / type of unknown pokemon as they're are added or is it a surprise? A: The Unknown Pokemon will remain Unknown. They will have to be figured out via game interactions.
  • Q: Are there items? Can Pokemon evolve, or become stronger / more resistant? A:  No; this is the very first beta test, designed to only cover the basics. Items and evolutions may be present in future beta tests, however.
  • Q: Are there eliminators? If not, who do you lynch? A: Yes; everyone gets a kill role and need to be the last one alive to win, so by default everyone is an eliminator. As for who you lynch, that will be for the players to decide.
  • Q: Is what the white text says true? A: Not necessarily; there is no guarantee if anything said in white text is true or false.

For some reason the tags appear to have been reversed. Please read them from right to left.

EDIT: Now they appear to have returned to normal, barring a few that have been misplaced. Oh well :P

Ahah, well, this is more like an elimination game than a Pokemon, meaning the distribution will randomized rather than player discretion. Still want to play?

So it's like a mix between Pokemon and Sword Art Online. Sounds like fun. Quick, but fun.

I'll sign up. You'll have to wait for a character though. I'm about to sit down to dinner. :P

I'm in. I don't think I'll be doing any roleplaying this game, so I don't know about a character.

I'll take spot number 8 as Poke Ranger Joe.

So, is there the normal lynch mechanic or just us killing each other?
Are we going to learn the name / type of unknown pokemon as there are added or is it a surprise?
Please tell me there's either a Scyther or Haunter.  And if so, give them to me!

Since it wasn't previously mentioned, however, in the case of three-way-ties or greater, a relevant die will be rolled to determine which player is lynched.

The Unknown Pokemon will remain Unknown. They will have to be figured out via game interactions.

Okay. There's either a Scyther or a Haunter. And sure, you've got 'em.

I'm in as Nonel, a slightly-sadistic trainer who prefers the Psychic type but will field anything with a high damage output.

 

@Conquestor Nice name!

@Amanuensis @Alvron *eye of Sauron voice* "I... see... you..."

I'll join as Elthena, please. This should be fun. :D 

Also, you can't really have something at 4 MST and 7 EST. That's not how timezones work. :P

The Bard didn't see the difference between reality and games. He didn't want to.

Because if a game gets real enough, solid enough that you can immerse yourself in it, where you build yourself an identity, where you can feel all the emotions roaring through you, more than you do in real life, then does it matter? In a way, life was just one giant game which you didn't sign up for, in which you endlessly grind away to build and make your little impact, only for it to be for nothing when you die anyway. The Bard didn't wanted any part of it.

So when he saw an advertisement for the beta testing of Pokemon Go, he didn't think twice. 2 days later, he was there. He unpacked all of his gear: His Game Boy, his Playstation, his XBox, as well as a number of the classic consoles that were barely remembered, and several portable powerpoint batteries so he could use them. He made his way to the middle of the arena, and set up camp in the middle of the arena, surrounded by a house of consoles of one variety or another.

He saw someone approaching him, but he didn't want to talk to them at the minute. Better to keep real life interactions to a minimum. He didn't want them getting the wrong idea. Quickly, he shuffled a stack of vintage PC's over into the doorway, shutting himself in. Good.

 

This is going to be fun. :P (I deliberately made a lighthearted character for this, because it looks like my LG character might have quite a dark storyline.)

Also, I think me signing up makes 11 as well.

Clarifications:

Are there items? (Potions would really come in handy...)

Is there a way to evolve your Pokemon, to make it stronger and more resistant to attack?

That is 11 indeed! Unknown Pokemon #2 Unlocked! 13 more Poke Players and we'll have all the secrets.

You're right; that should read PST, not MST (my bad, @STINK)
