I can just spam up my own journal :3
Four major ideas right now. One Specialverse, two gameverse, and one that could go either way, or even animeverse (though I don't play animeverse). Heck, one of the two gameverse ones could just be an originalverse. One per post for a while, I'm lazy okay?
Annnnywho, Specialverse AU idea is this post and it's just... Kinda cracky. Superhero AU, think Justice League of America. DEX HOLDERS GET POWERS. BAD GUYS GET POWERS except grunts don't. Basically... What I've thought of goes like this.
Red's a precog. He gets flashes of the future, typically only a few seconds ahead. Part of the reason he's such a great battler is because he can get glimpses of incoming attacks and avoid them. He can control these a little. It doesn't always work, though. Occasionally (when something really big is coming) he can get a vision of something pretty far in the future. He can't control those at all.
Green is an amplifier. He can boost the powers of other people, or lower them. Like Blue, he does this with hand-to-skin contact. He can choose whether to boost or weaken the power of his victim, and the buff/debuff lasts for 10 hours. The effects stack, so he can change the strength of someone's power by varying amounts. His power does not work on Pokemon.
Blue's power is all about thievery. If she touches someone who has a power with her bare hand, she can "steal" their power. She is able to use it, until she touches someone else, or touches the same person again. If she already has a power with her and touches someone else who has a power, she gets the power of the second person and they get the power she borrowed from the first person. This swap lasts for twenty-four hours. She can also give someone a power for twenty-four hours by stealing a power then touching someone who doesn't have a power with her bare hand. She can return a power to its owner the same way she stole it. People cannot use their powers while she or someone she lent it to has them. Her power does not activate if she doesn't get skin contact. She can hold onto a power she's stolen indefinitely, but she can only have one at once.
Yellow's powers are obvious. She just gets a big power boost, so she can heal humans fairly easily, too. Telekinesis, power boosting her Pokemon, and heart reading is as limited as in canon, though.
Gold's powers are also undecided. Suggestions? Thoughts?
Silver has no powers. Instead, he is essentially Batman of the Pokemon universe. Lots of combat training, lots of detective training, lots of precision and skill, and lots and lots and lots of gadgets. The boy knows what he's doing and it's serious business, though anyone could do what he does. Or rather, could learn to. But yes, he is essentially Batman.
Crystal's power is sort of like being a human Pokedex. She can look at a Pokemon or person and get bombarded by statistical information and scientific blahblahblah. She can also scan humans for powers. She can't look at history, exactly, but... Human Pokedex thing.
Ruby is an illusionist. It's sort of like hypnosis, but he can cast an illusion or mirage over any of a person or Pokemon's five or six senses. He can make people hear or see things, etc. Yes, this means sparkles. He can also cast illusions over a person's mind if he exerts enough effort. He can make them think their power's been sealed and such. His illusions, on average, last between four and six hours depending on the size, unless he takes them down.
Sapphire is a shapeshifter. She can take on the form of any Pokemon she knows the species name and form of, and use their abilities.
Emerald is alchemically powered. He can shift his chemical composition into any element on the periodic table. If he tries hard enough, he can also do this to objects. He can use the attributes of whatever element he turns into at will.
The Sinnoh trio and anyone from B/W also have undecided powers. Same goes for villains and other major characters. All comments and ideas are welcomed~
