Aaannnd a lot happened while I was at work today. xD

The theme sounds really cool, I'll admit. Though I'm not RPing, I'm still going to choose my specific Pokemon/samurai and make a banner just to be cool.

Now to work on my judge criteria for Drawn Art. *yays*

Edit; New avi/sig set. Guess who it is lololol.

/chants Please draft me into this team. Please draft me into this team. I gotta be honest I LIVE AND BREATHE ANCIENT JAPAN AND JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY. D':

And by the way, you might like to know this--the Samurai religion actually WAS a lot like Native American religions, they just didn't practice it as well as they should have most of the time. Right down to the shamans. The Japanese just called them onmyoji, and they eventually became official members of the imperial court. Onmyoji often had contracted shikigami spirits, and it seems like you're working on a similar idea with bonded Pokemon. Perhaps they could have an onmyodo ritual with that? Just food for thought~

Yeah, a lot did! But we did come up with an awesome theme and I love it. :D

I see what I can do in terms of drafting. Only problem is during the last draft, I was the last one to pick, so this time around, I may be last in terms of that. I'll do my best though, you'll be next on my list.


In the meantime, I made this for the main banner. Came out pretty nice, I think.



Also, should we have that samurai Pikachu as the mascot? "Ryu the Pikachu" has a nice ring to it. XD

Just throwin' it out there, but how about we each have our own mascot? You know, the one our character will be attached to / partnering with. 'Snot like we just need one, and if we do ... TALKING SWORD XD.

Your Pikachu's name: HADOUUUUKEN.

The talking sword solves all of life's problems.

I don't know what Pokemon I want yet. ;-; I have one character idea, but I don't know if I want to use it or not, so I'm waiting to see what else I can come up with. And seeing the actual RP would be helpful too.

I plan on making an epically long RP sign-up, but that will depend mostly on how much I like the plot and what's going on in my life.

SO HURRY UP, GEORGE.

Well, that's not really a mascot then. When you have a sports team, not every individual player picks their own mascot. :P

Default Re: [WAR 9] Shizen no Senshi: Spirit Guardian Samurai

My point was that it's hard to point at one single Pokemon as a theme when everyone will have their own to center upon. At any rate, I already have us a great mascot!

Spoiler:


's a really hard, interesting decision (picking one 'mon), and I really hope George takes into account the fact that we're only going to have one 'mon on our team. Unless we just take the logical path of 'that one will be stronger because of experience and time used.' Which isn't logical in a realistic setting, as a trained non-trainer user could have all 6 out at once to help with realistic situations. Hm.

Nice use of sports, Neo. I've taken quite a lot of sports-like tendencies into this War :P. Though I've held back a bit ...

And thankfully, there's a lot of quality members in the second part of the draft, so we'll end up with someone helpful no matter what. Despite almost picking last again.

Edit to the below: Or Scyther :o.

Hey, if you wanna use Pikachu, I don't think I'd mind. XD
But if you want something else, um, what about Gallade? I guess it just seems to be a kinda samurai-like Pokemon to me. And no, I'm not being biased either, cause Gallade isn't really in my top list.
Anyway, its classification as a blade Pokemon and the dual-typing might be a good way to link it to the team. ^^'

So I guess Scott is suggesting a Sentret/Furret mascot? That's the closest thing to a raccoon in Pokemon, I believe.

But I think I'd like to have a Scyther over a Gallade as the team's mascot.

I think Scyther is pretty much the samurai Pokemon. Scyther or Gallade. One of those two. (I prefer Scyther personally.)

Can we pick a couple Pokemon? I know Neo had talked about using a couple of characters from Gem's fanfiction as mascots if we had chosen another theme. Maybe do something like Scyther, samurai Pikachu, and something else. Aside from that, I don't have any ideas.

Looked through the whole Pokedex, besides Scyther and Gallade, I also think these qualify as samurai-esque Pokemon:

- Marowak
- Kabutops
- Blaziken
- Shiftry
- Medicham
- Weavile

EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE NOT REALLY SAMURAI.
