So I was dusting off my Nintendo DS from the real world (the original one. Giant, silver monstrosity that has been compared to a make-up case multiple times) and I turned it on and realized Pokemon Diamond was in it. Now, playing in the Sinnoh Region was fun for quite a few reasons as many of you probably know. One of my favorites was the ability to customize Ball Capsules. For those of you who don't know, a Ball Capsule is a way to edit the entrance of a specific Pokemon to the field. You could purchase lightning bolts, clouds, confetti, and various letters and symbols in order to customize your Poke-team even more.
This got me thinking. Wizards have magic. We already vanish in a swirl of magical confetti symbols in our class colors and pattern. What if there was a way to create custom teleport actions, even for a small crown premium. If not truly custom, what about a way to celebrate the holiday's in a magical fashion. Pumpkins or bats swirling you when you teleport for Halloween, trees or snowmen for Christmas, shamrocks for St. Patrick's day. Maybe even little flags for the 4th of July. Turkeys for Thanksgiving. Hearts for Valentines. The list could go on and on.
Maybe there could even be a couple of generic ones all year round, or to enhance your current teleport (adding stars to to your current teleport if you trained the star school and want to show off).
Who knows, if this takes off maybe we could get brighter or larger teleports based on level. Start everyone off at level one with just a small swirl of magic, and as the power increases (every 10 levels) a few additional swirls come into play.
I realize this is just a cosmetic idea, but how people love the bunny suit or the turkey hat? Some holiday items are just plain cool and can really let you express yourself. Let me know what you think of these ideas!
