Re: ASB Discussion and Suggestions
Why I think eggs should be implemented:
Without eggs, there would not be Pokemon. And Pokemon are in the ASBL, so why are there no eggs? Unless the Pokemon just magically appear, which is very unlikely.
So, my idea is to implement eggs into the ASBL.
How would you get an egg?
There would be a thread with different types of eggs listed on the first post. You would get an egg by posting that you want an egg of a specific type, and then you would have it. The Pokemon hatched from the egg would be random, but of that specific type.
Where do eggs come from? Breeding, of course! So, you can get an egg by breeding your Pokemon. You would post the two Pokemon you want to breed in a Daycare thread, and after they have been approved (for being in the same egg group and opposite genders), your Pokemon would go into the Daycare. Every battle command you post, your Pokemon will have a chance (undecided) of being found with an egg. The egg will be the species of the female Pokemon. If an egg is bred, it has the egg moves it would know in the games.
How would you hatch an egg?
As we all know, eggs hatch by being brought around with energetic Pokemon. So, the closest thing to being brought around with energetic Pokemon. The closest thing to that in the ASBL is watching energetic Pokemon battle. Egg Cycles pass when a command is given.
For example, Trainer A has a Charmander Egg (with 0 Egg Cycles out of 21 needed). She commands one of her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle. The egg would now have 2/21 Egg Cycles. If one of the Tackles missed, the egg would only have 1/21 Egg Cycle.
Let's take that same trainer and egg and the situation that both Tackles hit. Trainer A commands her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle, and both hit. The egg would now have 4/21 Egg Cycles. If one of the Tackles from last round missed, but both from this round hit, the egg would have 3/21 Egg Cycles. If a Tackle from each round missed, the egg would only have 2/21 Egg Cycles.
Or, if the ASBL Officals/Mods think its better, each command would count for 2 Egg Cycles.
If a command equaled 2 Egg Cycles, the above situation would be like this:
Trainer A has a Charmander Egg (with 0 Egg Cycles out of 21 needed). She commands one of her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle. The egg would now have 4/21 Egg Cycles. If one of the Tackles missed, the egg would have 2/21 Egg Cycles.
Let's take that same trainer and egg. Trainer A commands her Pokemon to use Tackle~Tackle. The egg would now have 8/21 Egg Cycles, assuming all of the Tackles hit. If one of the four Tackles miss, the egg would have 6/21 Egg Cycles. If two of the four Tackles missed, the egg would have 4/21 Egg Cycles.
Remember, commands are fine for hatching an egg no matter if they are in the Battles or the Safari Zone. But, commands in the Safari Zone only count if they are battle commands. 'Gyarados, Aqua Tail on that Relicanth' would count, but not 'Check out the rustling bush'.
Registering Hatched Pokemon
Once you have accumulated enough commands to hatch your egg, you may post the links to the Referee's posts in a Hatching thread. An Offical/Moderator would approve the hatching if all of the links were valid, or disapprove the hatching if one of the command posts wasn't valid. If approved, the Mod/Offical would tell you what Pokemon it hatched into, the gender of that Pokemon and if it's shiny or not.
How to make a command post valid
If you make a command post while you have an egg in your possesion, you must post how many Egg Cycles the Pokemon has before your Pokemon uses the actions in your post.
If a trainer you are posting a round for owns a Pokemon egg, you must post how many Egg Cycles the Pokemon has at the end of your post.
Extra Egg Cycles
If each command counts for two Egg Cycles, what will happen if the Egg Cycle is overpassed? For example, Trainer A has a Charmander egg with 20/21 Egg Cycles. Trainer A commands two Tackles, and they both hit. The Egg now has 22/21 Egg Cycles. The extra Egg Cycle could be distributed onto the next egg Trainer A obtains.
So, that's my idea for eggs in the ASBL. I think I've mentioned every thing that needs to be mentioned. So, opinions, ASB Mods/ Officals?
EDIT: A convienient list of Pokemon and their egg cycles. (Bulbapedia)

Oh. Guess that's OK, then.

Am I the only person on PE2K who likes Inazuma Eleven?
