I know, I know, I already made one proposition. However, this is just a general proposition that I wanted to support in the creation rather than personally create.
Concept: Pokemon Trading Center
Bio: Trainers trade their pokemon in exchange for another person's Pokemon.
Description: Trainers essentially bargain with one another (using Pokemon, Trainer Counters can be exchanged in addition to the trade if necessary) for one another's Pokemon. After all, not everyone has the time to train up the best pokemon, or perhaps, they notice that their original strategy looked good on paper, but did not work well in battle. The Trading Center fixes that problem. It gives Trainers a chance to trade undesired Pokemon for ones that they feel necessary as an addition to their team. The owner of this thread will oversee the trading process, making note of each trade and marking it in the initial post. This, essentially, is how I see a trade being made:
-Trainer 1 requests a Pokemon. He/she puts up a list of what Pokemon he/she has that he/she is willing to trade for the requested Pokemon.
-Trainer 2 accepts the trade. Perhaps at this point in time, he/she adds an extra condition to the trade, like extra Trainer Counters in addition to the requested Pokemon.
-Overseer notes the conditions of the trade and either approves or denies the trade.
-Trainers 1 & 2 make the trade once approved.
-Overseer notes the trade in OP.
Another function of the Trading Center is to provide a "home" for undesired Pokemon (essentially an Adopt-a-Pet thing). People can come here and offer to adopt these undesired Pokemon in exchange for Trainer Counters. The thing to note here is that these aren't just Pokemon you catch or buy, but they are pre-trained Pokemon who already had owners. These Pokemon can also be bought by a beginning Trainer instead of any of the starter Pokemon, since these Pokemon are pre-trained (it gives them a headstart).
In Conclusion: Personally, I don't want to necessarily make the thread for this concept, however, I do want to see it implemented as an RP Shop/Social thing. If later on, we decide that this idea is viable, anyone who is willing to devote their time to overseeing these trades can make a thread for it. I'm willing to help out in the development process. The amount of RP that'll go into this will be minimal as compared to other places, since this is mainly for exchanges. However, that doesn't mean it can't be used as an RP.
