Alright. Well the story takes place in the Kohjia Region. This is a region based on Japan. As such, there are all sorts of Pokemon that live here, from Grass types to Steel types, it's got it all. There are big bustling cities like Tokyo for example, and there are small quiet towns, like Kyoto(I think that is a calm town in Japan). There are both Trials and Gyms in this Region, but the trial captains and Gym Leaders have to use same type Pokemon as normal.
There are a number of ways we can look at this. You can be a Trainer, taking your journey like you would in a normal Pokemon game. Or you can be a Trial Captain or Gym Leader. But if you choose the second option, you can only choose 1 type as your main typing, then you can only have Pokemon on your team that are of that type. If you are a trainer, you can have any Pokemon you want, but you must catch it and train it first. Also, if you choose trainer, you will start brand new. You can choose any starter from any official region, then start your adventure. If you choose Trainer, every Pokemon you catch will have randomized stats, by me or a cohost. Anything a Cohost or I say is law. Also no battles until all are introduced.
What I have for the plot mainly is that, this will take place before catching Pokemon was a thing. The first Pokeball has just been invented and it is still a new concept to "catch" a Pokemon. Battling is also new. Before now, people tamed Pokemon like we would in real life, and had them as pets who could help with the household. But, like all changes with anything, there is always going to be a few people who disagree with the new ways. The Evil Team is going to focus on pointing out the evil things that catching a Pokemon could possibly do. Whether you are a Leader, Captain or Trainer, you will have to deal with them as best you can, while also convincing others that this is a good change, not a bad one.
You will start in the town of Kyoso, where the pokeball is being showcased in a convention. While there, if you are a Trainer, you will become inspired and take on the new Gym challenges along with the long-practiced Trials. If you are a Gym Leader like my cohost Kurigod(AKA Swordgod), you will be introduced as a brand new concept. Your job would be to inspire the potentially new Trainers to take the Gym challenge. If you are a Trial Captain like my character, you will already have your Trial set in place, as it was already a thing. Trials already existed, since before, a trial was a test of the bond between you and your Pokemon. If you passed, you were looked highly upon in your hometown. Take these into consideration when making apps.
