Tis why I have speed at 10 (1 evasion/10 speed).

That's what I meant. You can't apply both, so you could just as well use speed instead for defensive purposes, unless you're paralysed or somesuch.

I would probably take Megahorn just so you can hit Dark Types SE. Magic Coat is also enticing, but the Center frequency could be too punishing.
The ability changes to match the number rolled. So if you roll a 2, each ability in your line will be the second one listed.

But Snorunt has 3 abilities and Froslass has 4 (as well as any other pokemon that gains an additional typing upon evolving, I believe)
If you fail to get rest, you will suffer in character negatives. Poisoning can be self cured if you succeed your self curing roll, which I personally think is silly, but it's an apparent thing. Correct me if poisoning isn't self curable, as I'm under the impression that paralysis and poison are the ones that can.

Regular poison is, badly poision isn't, and kills pretty quickly to boot.
You cant choose your ability sadly.

But why?

In the scenario that a new ability is added, I'll reroll your ability altogether

Badly poisoned will require an item, then. Or a move of some sort.

You can only apply one evasion stat :?
I was under the impression evasion bonuses were combined for whichever stat it's relevant
(def + spd for physical, sp. def + spd for special).

Quote:
Pokemon have three different sets of Evasion. Physical Evasion, Special Evasion, and Speed Evasion. Evasion helps Pokemon avoid being hit by moves. When being targeted by a move that has an Accuracy Check, a Pokemon adds their Evasion score to the move’s accuracy check. Physical Evasion may modify only attacks that use the attack stat, while Special Evasion may modify only attacks that use the Special Attack Stat. Speed Evasion may be used to modify the Accuracy Check of any attack, but you may only add one of your three Evasion scores to any one check.

There's also a maximum of +6 from stat alone, and a hard cap of +9 evasion in total.

In case I didn't answer already, I will allow XY as 2/3 of my devices have access to the update. I just gotta get it on mobile somehow.

No, that's fine.
Anyway, not to be overly stuck up on this, but I'm actually going to need an answer on this.

You can do it if you want to; I won't prevent you. However, I do want to know the reason that compels you to, especially when you formulate youself with 'sadly', as if it is somehow regrettable. I don't see the perspective for it, so you'll have to share it with me.
I'll make preemptive mention of the fact that I won't accept an answer that resembles 'It's like that in the game', although I don't know if that could feasibly be the case or not.

Oh, completely forgot to answer that question!
If it didn't leap to some insane potential (example a Froakie with protean potentially at level 5 would be a little op even tho it doesn't have the best moveset to take advantage of that yet, but that'd still be a Protean Greninja later) I'd be fine with people choosing their own abilities. Also, the random aspect makes it more fun.

For the explicit purpose of being 100% pedantic, High Abilities such as Protean can only be acquired after level 40.
Anyway, any word from Garren? I'm drifting towards playing a debuffer right now, although I'm really tempted to pick up something with Aromatherapy just for quality of life purposes.
(Also kind of tempted to play Natu and try and wreck things with Stored Power but I'll abstain because it would be entirely power-gaming and I don't even know the system all that well.)

I haven't heard from Garren but I'll check to see how they're doing soon.
Also, feel free to play whatever you want to play. If you can give me a convincing argument, I'll let you choose your ability. This also applies to Storyteller and Garren, of course. And NPCs.
Also I have decided to allow mega evolution because the encounter generator also has the things for it, so if your species can mega evolve, great. I'll check to see if ORAS tho ORAS megas included. If that factors into your choice, let it. I do, however, consider any MEGA in the Smogon Ubers tiers off-limits unless you ditch your egg move.

And I do plan to release the world stuff tonight. With that out, I hope for you all to give me some character backstories with your characters.

You guys are just regular Pokemon unless you want to have your character think they are/have been a human in the past. Weird things can happen, I can figure it out.

I'm going to be reminded of Chrome Shelled Regios every time I see Glendan.
There are swords in a world with only Pokemon?

The Swords of Justice is the official name of Cobalion, Virizion, Terrakion, and Keldeo.
And I did use city names from CSR, because they sound fancy.
