Hidden "boss" Pokemon

#1PheonixFFire7Posted 8/28/2013 8:20:14 PM(edited)
I think it would be cool if there were optional, semi-hidden miniboss encounters throughout the game world. These would be wild Pokemon, but they'd be much more difficult versions of the average Pokemon you'd find in the area. Each area with wild Pokemon would have at least one boss to find; some would be well hidden and require some kind of prerequisite to encounter, while others will be out in the open and not hard to locate. Defeating boss Pokemon will yield much more EXP and EV's than usual, along with a bonus item picked up after the fight. You can also capture boss Pokemon if you prefer, as they generally have high IV's, already have some EV's, and almost always have a good held item....however, their catch rates will be much lower than what it would typically be for their species. Here are some ideas, using routes and locations from previous games as examples:

---Castelia Sewers - Unova---
Boss: "Sewer King Muk"
Single Battle

Muk (M) Level 35
IV's: 31/31/28/20/25/?
EV's: 104HP, 100DEF, 64SpA, 100SpD
Catch Rate: 45
Nature: Relaxed
Ability: Sticky Hold
Item: Black Sludge
~Toxic
~Stockpile
~Flamethrower
~Sludge Bomb

Rewards: 4,000 EXP, 30HP EV's, Toxic Orb

Prerequisite: Defeat 15 wild Grimer in the water of Castelia Sewers, then attempt to leave the sewer. Sewer King Muk will appear to block your exit if your party's level average is below 40.

---Viridian Forest - Kanto---
Boss: "Legendary Pikachu"
Single Battle

Pikachu (M) Level 14
IV's: ?/28/22/31/?/31
EV's: 60HP, 44SpA, 124SPE
Catch Rate: 60
Nature: Naive
Ability: Static
Item: Light Ball
~Electro Ball
~Iron Tail
~Thunder Wave
~Double Team

Rewards: 600 EXP, 8 Speed EV's, Thunderstone

Prerequisite: Discard an Oran Berry from your bag while standing in a patch of grass in Viridian Forest to make the Legendary Pikachu appear. Only works if your party's level average is 15 or below.

---Route 30 - Johto---
Boss: "Top Percentage Rattata"
Single Battle

Rattata (M) Level 14
IV's: 31/31/?/0/?/31
EV's: 36HP, 52ATK, 100 SPE
Catch Rate: 99
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Guts
Item: Flame Orb
~Bite
~Super Fang
~Protect
~Facade

Rewards: 600 EXP, 8 Speed EV's, King's Rock

Prerequisite: Talk to Youngster Joey three times after defeating him for the first time. Top Percentage Rattata will be your next wild encounter on the route, as long as your party's level average is below 20.

I really love ideas like this, but that is mostly because they dont belong in Pokemon. One pokemon is too simple. Maybe some "Enigma Trainer" to replace boss pokemon, so that there are more pokemon and more of a challenge. Maybe she/he could be the same one every time (in different places of course), with different pokemon, and you dont find out who it is until the end (I figure they would be disguised)

The boss pokemon idea sounds like Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, and that idea brought back good memories. Thank you.

You can, but announcing it to everybody in nearly every single topic accomplishes absolutely nothing

poke bosses are a good idea

being able to pokeball them is not
