Post Pokémon Diamond/Pearl Doujinshi

It's for a story I'm going to be doing on fanfiction.net. It's basically the story of the Diamond game with the following characters:
Eric - Me! Playing the role of the male hero
Dawn - Playing the role of Rowan's assistant
Tyson - Playing the role of my rival from the game (that's actually what my rival was named)
Professor Rowan - Same role as always
Mesprit - A Pokémon I see near the beginning in the lake
Team Galatic - Major enemies of the game

With a FEW differences:
Dawn travels with the male hero
Mesprit is first seen like how it was in the anime
Dawn's personality is from the game, NOT Dawn from the anime

What do you think of the idea?

I say...

GET A PLOT.

I hope you're not just copying straight out of the game.

No, you should know the plot if you're writing the first chapter. We just want your fanfic to be uncruddy.

Uncruddy? What does that mean? All I'm doing is my own version of Diamond. Not a lot is going to be based from the game.

1) Why post in the fic section if you don't have a fic?
2) Replacing the male hero with yourself is just ASKING to make a Gary-Stu, an awesome, cool, interesting character whom the whole world seems to revolve around. And whom all REAL people hate.
3) This is shown by Dawn suddenly travelling with your character and him seeing thr Legendary Mesprit because he is 'special.'
4) Instead of reading your fic, why don't I just go out and buy the game myself? Either I spend $50 now or wait for every chapter to be written and completed, but instead I can't control the character, his actions or anything. Playing the game is more fun. :/


Seriously, either post an actual fic you've written up or get back to the drawing board. Something original that's NOT the same as the game might make for a better read.

@legendmaster1223- It's nothing personal, they mean wished you introduced the cast-list alongside an actual chapter of the story to read. Other concerns seem to be you, not as a writer, but as a self-insert, saying that you will be follow the direct story flow of the game with a minor tweaks here or there. It has nothing to do with what gen your making a fic on just what you've offered thus far.

@Psychic- $50?! The game goes for 34.99+tax in GameStops. I'm sure other game stores sell it around that too.

Man I need to get a DS...

No, you should know the plot if your going to post the first chapter. There is a difference, you know.

As for you *glares at Legendmaster*: if you actually did something with the plot (i.e. super-duper chosen one or something except original) and have some strong characters, you'll do fine. Seriously, its in the characters. Go read Saber's Revelation: Cross of Fates on SPPf. That was a direct copy of the game plot and yet, oh, wait, it worked! Your fic could be the same, if you do it right.

I AM doing it right! And besides, I WAS JOKING!!! The main character isn't me! It's the character I PLAYED in the game. You know, the male Hero?

Again, sure it's good you got the charaters planned out but, your missing one big element a PLOT! Besides, I suggest you do something different than a regular old journey, I've seen a lot of those sence I found this forum

Once again, he has a plot - the game plot. If you have nice enough characters and describe things well enough, it could work. Mind you, it might not be the most exciting, but it'd be interesting.

And EspeonSun, regular old journeys are such a rarity - for the good ones at least. Nearly everyone with a sense knows that they must have a twist to claim their fame. Not like that is entirely right or anything...

I do have a few twists planned. I have big plans dealing with the following Pokémon:
Darkrai and Cresselia
Giratina
Shaymin
Dialga and Palkia
Mesprit
