So I've been playing Soul Silver recently, and it's made me want to recreate a pokemon trainer in Pathfinder. I'm currently debating as to whether it would be better as a Druid or a Summoner. Here's my reasoning for each

Druid: Uses animals that actually exist in the world. Problems are that the animals are fairly ordinary and have no magical abilities such as fire. Plus I've never seen a pokemon trainer transform into a Pokemon like a Druid's wild shape

Summoner: You get the elemental powers that pokemon have, but you have to make up your own creatures rather than ones that actually exist in the world.

What do you guys think? Or would it just be better to do a homebrew type build to make a pokemon trainer.

BTW, I know I've said this before, but I've almost got another piece of bonus content ready for those who answered our survey forever ago. So expect that in the next week or so!

Have you considered picking up Pokemon Tabletop United?

I had no idea that existed, but I guess I should have guessed something like it did. I'll look into it

The answer is: "play GURPS"

OK, that was a bad joke. I apologise.

I really do need to play it though. The problem is I barely have time to play anything right now :(

Actually, while I play GURPS all the time, I would love to play Pathfinder game at least once. But I don't know any players in real life who do so, and I really don't like playing on forums.

You really sure you should be encouraging me? ;)

Honestly can't tell if I should be pleased or worried now that someone else is bringing GURPS up in the comments. Also it really does have rules for this kind of thing: not an official Pokémon or Pokémon-esque supplement, but rules for summonable Allies that may be totally obedient, partially obedient, barely obedient, disobedient, etc.

And GURPS being GURPS, the players can probably choose between being not only a Trainer or Coordinator or Breeder or what have you but whether to be a person or Pokémon.

...yes it took a lot of rambling but now I have to wonder: has anyone done a "campaign screen cap comic" using the Pokémon animé? Especially with a system that does allow human or Pokémon PCs, it makes far, far too much sense. @_@

There was one I found, but it only lasted about 6 strips so not really.

Having actually tried to make this character, I went for the Broodmaster Archetype of Summoner. It doesn't really work in any games where the GM/Players are the min/max type because the character is hilariously unoptomized, but in a more RP-style game, it works pretty well.

At higher levels I would suggest getting some bags of holding and the Ioun stones that let you survive without air so you can have "Pokeballs". I spent a lot of my fears on Extra Evolution myself because the archetypes are point strapped. Hope that helps.

Look into pathfinder Unchained.
they re-tweeked the summoner, and made it better in my opinion. AND gave it a better spell list.
