It could be like some of the other mass crossovers and take place in a dream tent. In there, everyone would have to face their biggest fears, before Giovanni (who'll have a big role in my series) appears. This Giovanni could be kind of like the leader of Rainbow Rocket. He could have armies of these pokemon-Persian, Dugtrio, Golem, Nidoqueen, Onix & Rhydon. Then for the finish Ash and Ian could have a 4 on 4 battle. Of course Ian would win, but Ash would be able to knock out 3 pokemon, due to his pokemon being powered up by the Dream tent. Which would be a thing explored later. This could help teach Ash how there's always someone better than you.
Another thing would be that, Ash, Misty and Brock would be on a cruise to Cinnabar Island.
This could be interesting, probably after, so to build on the shady guy's- who Ash battled-appearance. Ash would be annoyed at why Ian doesn't remember him, and Ian not knowing what he's talking about at all. Based on Ian's habit of not remembering minor evil characters, Ash could be annoyed
In the battle between them, Ian could take up a sort of mentor role to Ash, telling him of shortcomings of his strategies and battling style, because at the moment Ash has a lot of them. In the battle, Ash could work to overcome them, like Ian.
There's also the point of how Ash and Ian would interact. Because apart from how they treat pokemon, the two are basically Ice and Fire.
There could a moment where Ian confuses Misty for the Misty of his universe.
I'm thinking that the special starts with the battle between Ash and the Shady Guy, and the loss to him is what triggers him to train in the Dream Tent. I love the idea of their worst fears, I am currently having a hard time figuring out what Ian's would be, so it would definitely be a challenge.
Feel free to go ahead and write portions for your characters, especially with the nightmares. If you could put on the page the listing of Misty's and Brock's Pokemon as well that'd be great. If there is any change of Ash's team from the massive crossover let me know, otherwise I was going to use that for him.
Hey. I finished the crossover. If you could look over it and see if there are any edits you want to make to it (Pokemon choices, Pokemon moves) go ahead and make them. This crossover WILL air next Thursday.
Just an idea, for the finale of the crossover, could Ash and Ian battle. Of course, Ian would win, but I thought it would be cool idea. For an example, you could use the battle to evolve Ian's Vibrava when it could be battling one of Ash's stronger pokemon like Charizard or Lapras (I substitued her for Gengar). Not Pikachu due to the disadvantage.
Interesting idea. I am considering several "mid-credit scenes" like they do in Marvel movies. That sounds like it would be a perfect scene for that. Maybe start it partway through the battle. I definetely like the idea of Lapras for Ash's. Right off the bat, I'm thinking Ian's Claydol to battle it, but Vibrava could be interesting too.
Love the idea! Especially since this will be their first meeting.
That rough draft idea is sorta expired now, as new ideas have flowed through my head and the story has been updated. Now that the Pokemon Satoshin was the source of power instead of the door, I plan on changing that. I need to update the page.
Your note of "Later assisted by Mewtwo" is going to come into play, and Ash calling for his assistance is currently the catalyst that allows them to save the day. I hope that sufices for right now.
Bring back Pokémon Creation Contests. I would be glad to hold them if no one else will.
Similar to how BTFF has alien fests, we could have Pokémon fests. Two weeks to celebrate a Pokémon line. A vote for a Pokémon goes for the entire line. If someone voted for Kirlia and someone else for Gallade, that would count for the whole Ralts line. If the entire gimmick of a Pokémon is that they’re counterparts (Sawk/Throh, Durant/Heatmor, Seviper/Zangoose), they also share a fest and votes. The elemental monkeys also all share a fest, because none want to drudge though three fests of the same monkeys.
Sorry to butt in, but I really like these ideas! You should share these on the forums or the server discord if you’re on there, more people could look at these. I’m an admin also, so I could help maintain these since past wiki events usually just never got off the ground.
