The Breeding Center



So, back in the mega thread, I did a write-up for a new Breeding Center, and now that we're piecing things out I thought I might make a thread to discuss it in. I'd really like to get anyone and everyone's thoughts on it. Is there anything you think needs changing?

It's directly based off of the original Breeding Center as devised by Tess, but with tweaks which make it more accessible to less veteran members.

THE BREEDING CENTER


On the outskirts of Fizzytopolis proper -- past the well-manicured suburbs -- in the rolling hills dotted wtih farmlands and undeveloped property sits a small ranch. This is the Breeding Center; a place which specializes in helping trainers and their Pokémon usher in the next generation. Seated on four acres of pristinely maintained land, the Breeding Center is a paradise overflowing with groves of fruiting trees, bodies of water, and plenty of private nooks and crannies to help facilitate... delicate discussion.

Welcome to the Breeding Center! We provide the optimal environment in which to breed your Pokémon. Are you a breeder by trade, and want to try for that perfect progeny? Perhaps your Pokémon has finally met that 'special' someone, and is ready to start their family? Maybe you just like babies! No matter what the reason, we have you covered. Our services may be used up to four times per calendar year, with a few stipulations:

RULES

01: A trainer may only breed any combination of their Pokémon four times within one (01) calendar year.
02: Due to the difference in physical demands, female Pokémon and Ditto may be bred five (05) times in a lifetime, while male Pokémon may be bred ten (10) times in a lifetime.
03: Both Pokémon being bred must be a minimum of Lv. 20.
04: Both Pokémon must be within the same egg group.
05: One trainer may drop off two (02) Pokémon, or two trainers may make arrangements to drop off one (01) Pokémon each.
06: It will take one (01) week for the parent Pokémon to breed, and one (01) week for the egg to hatch.
07: The offspring will be the same species as the mother or non-Ditto parent, with exceptions. (See below.)
08: Some species can only be obtained through the use of held items. (See below.)

SPECIAL OFFSPRING

The following species require a parent to be holding a specific held item.

Wynaut: Wobbuffet holding Lax Incense.
Azurill: Marill/Azumarill holding Sea Incense.
Budew: Roselia/Roserade holding Rose Incense.
Chingling: Chimecho holding Pure Incense.
Bonsley: Sudowoodo holding Rock Incense.
Mime Jr.: Mr. Mime holding Odd Incense.
Happiny: Chansey/Blissey holding Luck Incense.
Munchlax: Snorlax holding Full Incense.
Mantyke: Mantine holding Wave Incense.

EXCEPTIONS

The following breeding combinations (including evolved forms evolved forms) have a 50/50 chance of producing offspring of either parent species. This only applies when the corresponding lineages are bred together.

Nidoran & Nidoran
Tauros & Miltank
Volbeat & Illumise
Rufflet & Vullaby

SHINY ODDS

If both parents are shiny, odds that the offspring will be shiny are 50%.
If one parent is shiny, odds that the offspring will be shiny are 25%.
If neither parent is shiny, odds that the offspring will be shiny are standard.



This is, of course, nothing set in stone. I just thought that, since I already had the write up lying around, it would be a good jumping off point to discuss what else we might like to change about the center.

I think this is largely fine actually Tate, its a good proposal. However, I don't think Rule 2 needs to exist, or exist in its current form. We can just make a flat restriction.

With the introduction of Enigma Eggs as a staff reward, I would like to reoopen the discussion on the Breeding Center with the proposal that individuals with eggs can hatch them here (rather than opening up a separate egg house).

Thoughts?

Right so having been the one to suggest hatching eggs in a shop proper I feel I should chime in to say yeah this would be the perfect place for that. As for the above mentioned rule 2... I'm a bit torn, in that I think just a per year restriction would be fine since honestly FB is no longer as restricted on 'mon availability.

If we do, could we rename the place to The Hatchery or the Nursery or something like that? I like the idea but the current name seems a bit too specialized for it.

Also echoing Sneaze.

I think this could be a place where we hatch any egg we get, not just the ones from breeding or staff rewards; eggs we get from zone adventures themselves could be hatched here too. Rule 2 is the only thing I have any sort of problem with, and Sneaze's suggestion seems much nicer: just make it so individual Pokemon can only breed once a year, and there shouldn't be any real problems.

Make the Breeding Center for the hatching of any Eggs, period? I can get on board with this.

Well the area is supposed to be geared towards being a place where Pokémon can breed. So if you don't like Breeding Centre we could do something like "FB Discount Motel".
or "FB Hatchery/Nursery/Ranch" would work too.

>Once a year restriction (Rule #2)
I think this honestly can be relaxed to 2 or 3 times a year per Pokémon. The reason for this is in case two trainers want to breed their Pokémon together and both have an egg. A year time difference between this is a bit much.

>Mother's species (Rule #7)
Slightly tying in to the above. I'm fine either way if we do it like the games or not, but do we want to keep it restricted to being the mother's species only or do we want a percentage split between it being the male/female Pokémon? I'm asking because the latter opens up a lot more possibilities for trainers to have their Pokémon breed together.

EDIT: Also, MM, no purple? Is this your shiny form?

Yeah I in no way meant bring it to once yearly, but twice yearly would be fine. That's half a trainer's breedings in a year so it's pretty fair all in all.

As for bringing in the ability for it to be the species of the father... I'm not really opposed to this idea, I just don't think it should be a 50/50 split. Keep things more likely to be the mother's species if you're going to go this route. It also kinda messes with things when we get into how species with only a singular gender work.

More like my "posting from my phone during a half-hour break" form. You'll see a lot of that from me on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from here on.

I'm pretty torn on this matter myself. On one hand, I like the idea of certain breeding pairs of mine potentially having the father's species, but on the other, I'd like to have some sort of control over what I end up getting. Personally, I'm leaning towards the latter part of it only because that's been the rule in the past, though I could see some sort of opt-in kind of thing working out as well.

We could have some sort of FB-exclusive Incense that must be involved in the breeding process for a chance at getting the father's species instead of the mother's.

Or just make it a rare item and have it guaranteed to be the father's species, I doubt it would break the game.

Item that guarantees father's species would likely be for the best in this case. Nobody would bother with an item that doesn't guarantee anything when you've got limited amounts of breeding allowed.

Alright then, a Godfather/Masculine Incense sounds like a good way to go. The others cost $500 in the Department Store, I think we can keep that price and have it be account-locked to prevent having only a few going around in rotation. Agreeable?

Also, rule 2 will be changed so that a single Pokémon may only breed twice in a calendar year. Agrees?

Lastly, any last requests or changes? Otherwise we can finish off this project.

With those changes, I believe it's ready to ship!
