    Lightbulb A Reimagining: Starter Pokemon

    This is my attempt to create three Starter Pokemon with simple evolution templates in a 20th level racial class. I got one down, soon to start working on another. These are mostly meant for fun but i welcome any creative comments.

    Default Re: A Reimagining: Starter Pokemon

    Note: Treat this class as a native outsider racial class for Bulbasaur, applying the evolution templates as it grows in level.

    Bulbasaur is a quadruped, reptilian creature that somewhat resembles a toad or a young dinosaur with a spotted blue-green hide. It has three white toes or claws growing out of its four legs, and its eyes are a bright red. The most notable feature of this Pokémon is the onion-like bulb on its back, which grows from a seed planted on its back by its mother at birth. Bulbasaur's bulb shares a symbiotic relationship that is beneficial for both. This allows Bulbasaur to get an enhanced boost of energy from the sun during the day and the bulb to remain growing and strong at night. The bulb also contains many seeds from which it draws nutrients.
    Though they usually walk on four legs, a Bulbasaur can rise up on its hind legs. When it evolves into Ivysaur, the bulb becomes a larger flower bud, making it nearly impossible for one to rise on its hind legs.

    Class Features
    The following are the class features of Bulbasaur.

    Spoiler
    Show
    1st - Growl (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can release a frightening growl, causing all within 20 ft. who fail a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) will save to become shaken for 1d4 rounds. This is a fear effect.

    1st - Tackle (Ex):
    Bulbasaur has a primary slam attack dealing 1d4 damage.

    2nd - Leech Seed (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can launch a single razor sharp seed at one target within 30 ft. as a ranged touch attack. If the target fails a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) fortitude save, the seed sprouts within the wound and bursts life-sapping vines across the target. The vines begin dealing 1 point of Constitution modifier each round for 1d4 rounds.

    3rd - Vine Whip (Ex):
    Bulbasaur gains a secondary slam attack with 15 ft. reach dealing 1d4 damage.

    4th - Spores (Poison) (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can unleash a torrent of spores at one target with 30 ft. as a ranged touch attack. If the target fails a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) fortitude save, the spores become toxic on contact. The poisonous spores begin dealing 1d4 points of Strength modifier initially, then again one minute later.

    5th - Spores (Sleep) (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can unleash a torrent of spores at one target with 30 ft. as a ranged touch attack. If the target fails a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) fortitude save, the spores causes the target to fall into a deep sleep on contact. The spores cause the target to fall prone and unconscious for 1d4 rounds.

    6th - Spores (Stun) (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can unleash a torrent of spores at one target with 30 ft. as a ranged touch attack. If the target fails a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) fortitude save, the spores paralyze the target on contact. The spores last for only 1 round.

    7th - Takedown (Ex):
    Bulbasaur’s primary slam attack (tackle) becomes capable of dealing increased damage, while dealing damage in turn to Bulbasaur. If the Bulbasaur chooses to take 1d6 damage, its tackle deals an additional 2d6 damage. This ability can only be applied once and cannot be stacked with any like ability, such as the Vicious weapon quality or the Double-Edge special ability.

    8th - Evolution (Ivysaur):
    Apply the Ivysaur Template to the base statistics. If chosen, the template can be prevented for one level, after which the Bulbasaur is offered the same choice until it is taken. This allows for Bulbasaur to reach later levels (and more potent powers) without evolving.

    9th - Razor Leaf (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can fire a barrage of razor sharp leaves at a target within 60 ft. as a ranged touch attack. These leaves deal 1d6 per two levels. This ability can only be used a number of times per day equal to three plus the Bulbasaur’s Charisma modifier.

    10th - Sweet Scent (Ex):
    Bulbasaur gains a bonus on all charisma based checks with other Pokémon, the bonus equal to one half the bulbasaur’s level.

    11th - Growth (Su):
    As long as Bulbasaur remains in direct sunlight, it gains a +4 bonus on any healing effect that regenerates health.

    12th - Double-Edge (Ex):
    Bulbasaur’s primary slam attack (tackle) becomes even more capable of dealing damage, while dealing damage in turn to Bulbasaur. If the Bulbasaur chooses to take 2d6 damage, its tackle deals an additional 4d6 damage. This ability can only be applied once and cannot be stacked with any like ability, such as the Vicious weapon quality or the Double-Edge special ability.

    13th - Synthesis (Su):
    As long as Bulbasaur remains immobile while in direct sunlight, it gains Fast Healing 5 until it moves. This ability cannot be utilized while using its solar beam special attack.

    14th - Seed Bomb (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can launch a single razor sharp seed at one target within 30 ft. as a ranged touch attack. If successful, the target is dealt 1d6 per level (15d6 maximum) as the seed explodes. Those within 10 ft. of the target must make a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) reflex save or suffer one-half the damage taken by the initial target.

    15th - Solar Beam (Su):
    As long as Bulbasaur remains immobile while in direct sunlight, it can choose to take a full round action to begin charging a mighty attack. The following round as a standard action, the Bulbasaur can unleash a beam of solar energy to all within a 120 ft. line. The beam deals 1d6 damage per level (half fire, half electricity) unless a successful (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) reflex save is made for half damage. This ability cannot be utilized while using its Synthesis special ability.

    16th - Evolution (Venusaur):
    Apply the Venusaur Template to the base statistics, stacking with the Ivysaur template. As before, the choice is not mandatory and will be offered each level up.

    17th - Petal Dance (Ex):
    As a full round action, the Bulbasaur flies into a rage-like state for 1d3+2 rounds. During this state the Bulbasaur gains a +2 enhancement bonus to Dexterity and +2 dodge bonus to AC but can only perform a single move action. At each round on the Bulbasaur’s turn, the flower on the Bulbasaur’s back launches a dozen petals around it in a 15 ft. radius, spinning rapidly in a vortex around itself. These petals deal 10d6 slashing damage to all targets within range unless they make a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) reflex save for half damage. After the state ends, the Bulbasaur becomes confused for 1d4 rounds.

    18th - Hyper Beam (Su):
    As full round action, the Bulbasaur can unleash a powerful beam of force. The beam deals 1d6 force damage per level unless a successful (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) reflex save is made for half damage. However, after using this attack, the Bulbasaur is stunned for 1 round. This ability cannot be used more than once per encounter.

    19th - Spores (Venoshock) (Su):
    As a standard action, Bulbasaur can unleash a torrent of spores at one target with 30 ft. as a ranged touch attack. If the target fails a (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) fortitude save, the spores increase the volatility of any poisons currently infecting the target on contact. Damage already taken by poison is unaffected, however, any secondary poison damage will be increased. The poisonous spores double any active poison’s secondary damage within the target.

    20th - Frenzy Plant (Ex):
    As full round action, the Bulbasaur can unleash its ultimate attack. It radiates heat and light violently, sending glowing leaves and petals twirl around it at high speeds within a 30 ft. radius. All creatures in the area are blinded and take 6d6 points of untyped damage and 6d6 of slashing damage.

    A creature to which sunlight is harmful or unnatural takes double untyped damage. A successful (DC 10 + 1/2 Bulbasaur level + Charisma modifier) Reflex save negates the blindness and reduces the damage by half.

    An undead creature caught within the globe takes 1d6 points of untyped damage per level plus 6d6 slashing damage, or half of both types of damage if a Reflex save is successful (no save for blindness). In addition, the burst results in the destruction of any undead creature specifically harmed by bright light if it fail its save.

    The ultraviolet light generated by the spell deals damage to fungi, mold, oozes, and slimes just as if they were undead creatures. This ability dispels any darkness spells of lower than 9th level within its area. This ability cannot be used more than once per day.

    Default Re: A Reimagining: Starter Pokemon

    Note: Treat this class as a native outsider racial class for Charmander, applying the evolution templates as it grows in level.

    Charmander is an orange reptilian creature resembling a tailed bipedal salamander with some dinosaur qualities, particularly like those of theropods. Charmander has four small fangs visible on its upper and lower jaws, a cream underside and an expansive cream coloration on the sole of its foot. Its most notable feature is the flame burning on the tip of its tail, which is there even at birth. It is said that if this flame goes out, the Pokémon dies, although this has never been proven.
    Charmander has been described as cute in appearance; however, one may have to regard it with caution, as its slashing claws are sharp and strong, and thus potentially dangerous.


    Alignment: Any. Usually Chaotic
    Hit Dice: 1d8

    Skills: Climb (Str), Diplomacy (Cha), Fly (Dex; usable only after becoming Charizard), Handle Animal (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Listen (Wis), Profession (Wis), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis).

    Class Features
    The following are the class features of Charmander.

    Spoiler
    Show
    1st - Growl (Su):
    As a standard action, Charmander can release a frightening growl, causing all within 20 ft. who fail a (DC 10 + 1/2 Charmander level + Charisma modifier) will save to become shaken for 1d4 rounds. This is a fear effect.

    1st - Scratch (Ex):
    Charmander has a primary claw attack dealing 1d4 damage.

    2nd - Ember (Su):
    As a standard action, the Charmander can spit a small ball of fire at one target. The Charmander must make a successful ranged touch attack against the target, dealing 1d6 fire damage per 2 levels (max 5d6). Flammable materials burn if the flames touch them. A target can extinguish burning items as a full-round action.

    3rd - Smokescreen (Su):
    As a standard action, Charmander can exhale a cloud of ash and smoke. This smoke fills a 20 ft. cube in front of the Charmander for each round the Charmander continues to exhale, up to a number of cubes equal to its level. The smoke obscures all sight, including darkvision, beyond 5 feet. A creature within 5 feet has concealment (attacks have a 20% miss chance). Creatures farther away have total concealment (50% miss chance, and the attacker can’t use sight to locate the target). A moderate wind (11+ mph) disperses the smoke in 4 rounds; a strong wind (21+ mph) disperses the smoke in 1 round. The ability does not function underwater.

    4th – Dragon Rage (Ex):
    The Charmander gains a +2 morale bonus to Strength and Constitution, a +1 morale bonus on Will saves, and a –2 penalty to AC. The effect is otherwise identical with a barbarian’s rage.

    5th – Scary Face (Ex):
    Charmander gains a bonus on all intimidate checks with other Pokémon, the bonus equal to one half the Charmander’s level.

    6th - Bite (Ex):
    Charmander has a primary bite attack dealing 1d6 damage. When used in conjunction with the Charmander’s scratch attacks, they become secondary, while the bite remains primary.

    7th – Dragon Claw (Ex):
    The Charmander’s claws harden, becoming razor sharp and harder than steel, dealing 1d6 damage and ignoring hardness less than 20.

    8th - Evolution (Charmeleon):
    Apply the Charmeleon Template to the base statistics. If chosen, the template can be prevented for one level, after which the Charmander is offered the same choice until it is taken. This allows for Charmander to reach later levels (and more potent powers) without evolving.

    9th – Fire Fang (Su):
    The Charmander’s Bite attack gains the flaming weapon property; as well as treated as magical for the purposes of damage reduction.

    10th – Flame Burst (Su):
    As a standard action, the Charmander can spit a small ball of fire at one target. The Charmander must make a successful ranged touch attack against the target, dealing 1d6 fire damage per 2 levels (max 5d6). Flammable materials burn if the flames touch them. A target can extinguish burning items as a full-round action.

    11th – Flame Charge (Su):
    The Charmander can burst forward in a flame-covered charge. Anyone struck by the charging Charmander suffers 2d6 fire damage + Charmander level. Flammable materials burn if the flames touch them. A target can extinguish burning items as a full-round action.

    12th - Slash (Ex):
    Charmander’s primary claw attack (scratch) becomes even more capable of dealing damage, while dealing damage in turn to Charmander. If the Charmander chooses to take 2d6 damage, its tackle deals an additional 4d6 damage. This ability can only be applied once and cannot be stacked with any like ability, such as the Vicious weapon quality.

    13th - Flamethrower (Su):
    As a standard action, Charmander can release a powerful line of flame out to 120 ft., dealing 1d6 points of fire damage per Charmander level (maximum 15d6) to each creature within its area. Flamethrower sets fire to combustibles and damages objects in its path. It can melt metals with a low melting point, such as lead, gold, copper, silver, or bronze. If the damage caused to an interposing barrier burns through it, the flame may continue beyond the barrier if the range permits; otherwise, it stops at the barrier.

    14th – Iron Tail (Ex):
    Charmander gains a secondary tail slap attack dealing 1d6 damage. This attack ignores hardness less than 20.

    15th - Dragonbreath (Su):
    As a standard action, Charmander can release a powerful line of crackling force out to 240 ft., dealing 1d6 points of force damage per Charmander level (maximum 10d6) and 1d6 electricity damage per Charmander level to each creature within its area. Dragonbreath sets fire to combustibles and damages objects in its path. It can melt metals with a low melting point, such as lead, gold, copper, silver, or bronze. If the damage caused to an interposing barrier it shatters and melts through it, the breath may continue beyond the barrier if the range permits; otherwise, it stops at the barrier.

    16th – Evolution (Charizard):
    Apply the Charizard Template to the base statistics, stacking with the Charmeleon template. As before, the choice is not mandatory and will be offered each level up.

    17th - Fire Spin (Su):
    A Charmander can surround itself with rings of flames, burning all within 20 ft. of the Charmander.

    18th - Inferno (Su):
    The Body of Charmander radiates so much heat that simple contact with it can cause intense burns, setting fire to combustibles. Coming into contact with Charmander deals 1d6 fire damage. In addition, any natural attacks the Charmander gain the flaming burst weapon quality. Those who grapple with the Charmander takes 1d6 + Charmander level for each round of grappling. The Charmander can activate or suppress this heat as a full round action.

    19th - Fire Blast (Su):
    As a full round action, Charmander can breathe a massive sphere of fire at any target within long range. If Charmander aims a fire blast at a specific creature, you may make a ranged touch attack to strike the target with the fire blast. Any creature struck by one of these spheres takes 2d6 points of bludgeoning damage (no save) and receives no saving throw against the sphere’s fire damage (see below). If a targeted sphere misses its target, it simply explodes at the nearest corner of the target’s space.

    Once a sphere reaches its destination, it explodes in a 40-foot-radius spread, dealing 1d6 points of fire damage per Charmander level to each creature in the area. If a creature is within the area of more than one sphere, it must save separately against each. (Fire resistance applies to each sphere’s damage individually.)

    20th - Blast Burn (Su):
    As full round action, the Charmander can unleash its ultimate attack. It radiates heat and light violently, sending glowing flames and ash twirling around it at high speeds within a 30 ft. radius. All creatures in the area are blinded and take 6d6 points of untyped damage and 6d6 of fire damage.

    A creature to which sunlight is harmful or unnatural takes double untyped damage. A successful (DC 10 + 1/2 Charmander level + Charisma modifier) Reflex save negates the blindness and reduces the damage by half.

    An undead creature caught within the globe takes 1d6 points of untyped damage per level plus 6d6 fire damage, or half of both types of damage if a Reflex save is successful (no save for blindness). In addition, the burst results in the destruction of any undead creature specifically harmed by bright light if it fail its save.

    The ultraviolet light generated by the spell deals damage to fungi, mold, oozes, and slimes just as if they were undead creatures. This ability dispels any darkness spells of lower than 9th level within its area. This ability cannot be used more than once per day.

    Speaker of the Human Tongue
    Through high intellect and hard work, the Pokemon has mastered higher languages.

    Prerequisites: Int 14, Pokemon Only.
    Benefits: The pokemon can now take ranks to gain languages.
    Normal: Pokemon can only speak a spattering of its name and animal sounds. Pokemon can innately communicate on a deeper level than other creatures, and can always understand them, even if it sounds like gibberish.

    I think you should increase the slam dmg or something when you evolve. As is, it looks like you get dex penalty, get some stats, get bigger, but don't really gain much from evolving.

    size increases generally increase damage dice size one step, i assumed it was a given.

    Edit: its now in the template section.

    On frenzy plant, there is no stated range/area of effect, and seems a bit convoluted. Could it be cleared up a bit?

    its basically sunburst plus extra slashing damage.

    Overall, this is reasonably low (I'd wager 5-4 border), but Spores (Sleep), as an ability, is not. You've offered a scaling, single-target save or die at level five. Other abilities (Leech Seed, Growl) don't scale, so the scaling here is a curious choice to me, and you limited the stun to one round, so 1d4 minutes, while true to Pokemon mechanics in some regards, absolutely does not fly in 3.5e at the same level everything else is at.

    You could also tighten up your wording on many of the abilities. Take Down and Double Edge both leave me wondering if I can take that damage multiple times if I wanted to, but maybe that's just the boundary pusher in me. One round, for the stun spores, could be more clear as to when precisely it ends (e.g. lasts until beginning of the creature's next turn). Solar Beam doesn't specify whether Reflex halves or negates, but implies the latter, to me, as written. Doubling the active poison damage (Venoshock) makes me wonder if it will double any future rolls, double already taken damage, or both. Lots of room for questioning/ambiguity that doesn't really do the class any favors.

    I would also say I'm not a fan of classes like this (get one new option per level), despite having made some of them in the past (before I learned better, IMO). I think you could create a Pokemon base class (perhaps several to reflect different focuses, but might not even be necessary) that is a martial adept, prestige classes for evolutions (probably even one level prestige classes), and then do the moves as maneuvers, which would add some resource management and prevent best ability available spam. At level one you pick a type it offers access to a particular discipline and maybe one or two others. Granted it's not an explicit adaptation, but that's hardly a bad thing in many respects.

    thats an overwhelming list...
    i might do Gen 1 pokemon, meaning Pikachu might get made, but Eevee will not be made (far too much work with the evolutions).

    an error, all are meant to scale. thank you for pointing that out. Also, the save or die effect at level 5 does not bother me in the slightest, considering the medusa (one level higher) has a more potent save or die effect.

    You could also tighten up your wording on many of the abilities. Take Down and Double Edge both leave me wondering if I can take that damage multiple times if I wanted to, but maybe that's just the boundary pusher in me.

    No, it can be taken only once, similar to the Vicious weapon quality.

    One round, for the stun spores, could be more clear as to when precisely it ends (e.g. lasts until beginning of the creature's next turn).

    How would you word it?

    Solar Beam doesn't specify whether Reflex halves or negates, but implies the latter, to me, as written.

    Halves it.

    Doubling the active poison damage (Venoshock) makes me wonder if it will double any future rolls, double already taken damage, or both. Lots of room for questioning/ambiguity that doesn't really do the class any favors.

    I did not realize it seemed so ambiguous...

    As to the last bit, no. i will not alter it so dramatically and confuse it all up with multiple Prestige classes. these were just meant for fun, and im not gonna do a complete rewrite of what ive done. Im not doing maneuvers, as its too time consuming.

    Also, i will not do anything similar to limiting the abilities to pokemon's standard four move list.

    I was wondering why bulbasaur nor charmander get another attack at 6th level...

    Furthermore: if you want to make it really D20-ish I recommend you give good saves and bad saves. These could be interchangeable by type (Charmander would have good reflex, Bulbasaur good Fortitude, Squirtle good Will)

    But what astonished me the most was: 8+INT SKILLPOINTS!?
    That's a lot. Really. The most cunning of humans (rogue) gets 8+int. I don't think pokemon are that cunning. I'd give them 4 or if I'm really generous 6, but 8 is too much.

    Sorry if I sound harsch, but I wanted to give some (constructive) criticism.
    Keep up the good work!

    Im basing all pokemon off of the Outsider type, so they are all correct.
