LEGAMON: Cataclys Regional Legadex

The Cataclys Regional Legadex

The Cataclys region is one of immense natural beauty and intricately layered histories. From the unsummited peak of Mt. Colossus to the uncharted depths of Abyss Canyon, from the glittering blue Iridesce Forests to the rust-red Hema Flats, legamon of all shapes and sizes roam freely through a tumultuous landscape. The peoples of Cataclys live in harmony with legamon, their ways of life shifting with the seasons, passing down the tales of the ruins that dot the landscape in rich oral tradition. These ruins are gigantic and clearly artificial – built long ago by peoples from across the ocean who dared to conquer and enslave legamon instead of treating them with the respect that all living things deserve. Their ruins stand as a testament to the folly of such an endeavor.

More Rules
 
Leveling Up: If a 'mon doesn't have higher-level evolutions, they still can level up and learn moves and get stronger. When you hit a milestone that would let them level up, add 1 to their Hit Dice, add 1 to their Power Dice, then distribute 5 more points as you see fit between their stats. Level 3 is still the level cap.
 
Any 'mon can level up without evolving. If you don't want it to change types or abilities, or you just like how it looks when it's small and cute, you can feed it an Everyoung Blossom to stunt its growth. They also might learn different moves this way!
 
Legamon Training: You can also use a level up (especially once your ‘mon has hit max level) to instead redistribute up to level points between its abilities, and if it’s double-typed, you may swap the types of its basic Physical and Status moves. Can’t go below level Hit Dice or Power Dice.
 
Moves: A ‘mon can only know a number of moves equal to its level, but you can always train it out of its old bad habits and into new ones that help your team composition or let you surpass the latest obstacle.
 
Stats gained or lost from moves don’t last beyond the battle. Health lost and PD spent do.
 
Even if a Physical move misses or a Status Move is saved against, still roll the Power Die to see if it returns or not.

  2. I love this! Your works is always so good! But I feel three moves per 'mon is too limiting, so I think I'll make it so they can learn extra moves beyond their "Innate" moves that they get from leveling up. Perhaps, one for every hit die? And for Legamon with hit die above three, only every die above three is another move slot! And maybe they only learn moves above the normal maximum by "special" means!
