ASB Safari Zone Thread


Welcome to the Safari Zone where you can catch Pokemon to your hearts content. Simply pay $10 in ASB Cash to get into the Safari Zone where you'll then be given 30 Safari Balls. Once you run out of Safari Balls, your Safari Game will end.

The Pokemon you will run into will be randomly generated from the ASB Tier List. (All Pokemon in the "Banned" Tier have no chance of appearing within the Safari Zone.)


ASB Safari Zone Rules Wrote:
  • A maximum of two people can be in the Safari Zone at one time.
  • You can only have one Safari Zone visit per week.
  • No godmodding. (AKA; Asking for a specific Pokemon.)

If you'd want to play, another ASB Ref would ref what Pokemon you'd see.

I would like to know the mechanics too.
How do you determine if a Pokemon is caught?
How often will a Pokemon come up?
Does a ref have to do post the outcomes?
Does a Pokemon have to appear every turn?
Is there a limit to how many Pokemon can be caught?

has anyone seen my sanity

This idea was extremely underdeveloped in the discussion thread of ours. It's definitely not ready yet.

Absolutely
This thread is just for the approval and discussion. This seems to be the best place for it since it is a shop in pending approval. Smile

I wanted a discussion thread about the Safari Zone.

I do plan on increasing the price in the final product.

How about you say that a Trainer is Guaranteed to catch at least 1 Pokemon, but there is no guarantee that any more will be caught. Every time they catch a Pokemon, their chances of catching another reduces by half. So if a trainer is lucky, they might catch 2-3. The Safari Zone could be open all month, but a trainer can only use it ONCE A MONTH since that would make it too easy if it was every week. It would cost $25 dollars, about as much as a Tier 3 Pokemon, or it could be $30. As there is no guarantee of catching more than one Pokemon there should be something a trainer receives if they only catch one, that could be anywhere along the lines of a Single use Potion, or any single use item(excluding rare candy, Herbs, and and potion from Hyper and higher.).

If a Trainer sees a pokemon they can decide whether they want to catch it or not. Their first pokemon they attempt to catch will be caught. However following that Pokemon the ref will RNG whether a trainer catches the next Pokemon or not. The RNG will be from 1-100, and if the number is from 1-50 then the trainer catches the pokemon, but anywhere from 50-100 then the trainer does not catch the pokemon. The same goes for the 3rd Pokemon(if they catch a second) except the ref will RNG the same but if the number is anywhere between 1-25 then the trainer catches the Pokemon, however if the number is above 25 then it is not caught.

A Trainer should only receive 4 balls on a Safari Zone trip. That prevents prolonging their trip, and making the thread God-Awfully long.

The ref can determine what Pokemon comes up with a RNG, and will post the outcomes after the trainer has attempted to catch a pokemon. The ref can also determine WHEN a pokemon comes up.

Those are my thoughts and ideas for this. Hope it counts for something.

They are all good ideas, tyler. Thanks for them.

I was thinking about increasing the entrance price to maybe $20, what does everyone think?

Most of youre ideas are pretty grand, but I think 10-15 Safari Balls would be good. If it once a month, then $25-30 is a good price for it. You would want to make it cheaper the longer the wait is.
