Medieval Researcher Options

The following are all Researcher Fields of Study that can supplement those found in the core book and do not take up Class slots. Instead, choose them the same way you would choose any other Field of Study when you take the Researcher Class.

Below are variants on classes from Do Porygon Dream of Mareep for a medieval setting, or simply for somebody that wants slightly different fluff for their class. While certainly not wholly original, hopefully you can have fun with them!


The Necromancer is a master over death, pulling souls back from beyond the veil to give life to a once still corpse. Zombies, skeletons and ghouls are their ilk, and a horde of the undead more than rounds out the typical Necromancer's crew.

Only use the Necromancer Field of Study in darker campaigns, as the topic of undead in a Pokemon game can be rather unsettling for some. It also tends to work better in games where the players aren't required to be entirely good and holy, as the undead is often connected to evil and darker areas of the alignment pool.

Basic Undead Construct Mechanics
Undead Constructs are given stats and treated much like Pokémon are. Undead Constructs can make Struggle Attacks and can also perform and be affected by Combat Maneuvers if their structure allows for it, but they never add STAB to any attacks they make. Undead Constructs can gain Injuries but are immune to all Status Effects except for Burn, Frozen, Paralysis, Disabled, Suppressed, Trapped, Slowed and Flinch. Undead Constructs are Typeless and Genderless but their Struggle Attacks count as Ghost Type for the purposes of Rattled and take Super-Effective damage from Fire, Fighting and Bug Moves. Undead Constructs are capable of using most Held Items, though not consumables.

Small Undead Constructs begin with 32 total base stats, distributed as you like, with a maximum of 6 in a given stat. Medium Undead Constructs begin with 40 total base stats, distributed as you like, with a maximum of 8 in a given stat. Large Undead Constructs begin with 48 total base stats, distributed as you like, with a maximum of 10 in a given stat. Undead Constructs gain Stats through Level up and are given Experience like Pokémon are.

Small Undead Constructs have Overland 6, Power 1, and Jump 0/0. Their size is Small, and they are Weight Class 1. They have 4 skill ranks to split between Athletics and Combat, 6 to split between Acrobatics and Stealth, and no Perception or Focus ranks by default.

Medium Undead Constructs have Overland 5, Power 3, and Jump 1/1. Their size is Medium, and they are Weight Class 3. They have 5 skill ranks to split between Athletics and Combat, 5 to split between Acrobatics and Stealth, and no Perception or Focus ranks by default.

Large Undead Constructs have Overland 4, Power 5, and Jump 1/1. Their size is Large, and they are Weight Class 5. They have 6 skill ranks to split between Athletics and Combat, 4 to split between Acrobatics and Stealth, and no Perception or Focus ranks by default.

All Undead Constructs have the Hazard Immunity, Vacuum Immunity, and Mindlock capabilities by default. Undead Constructs can have any Home Gravity and have Gravitic Tolerance for one step to each side of that value. An Undead Construct can be restored to its full Hit Points at a Pokémon Center with repair facilities, or by repairing it over the time period of an Extended Rest. However, Undead Constructs may only have 1 Injury removed per repair period, unless repaired at a Pokémon Center, in which case they may have up to 3 removed. Quick-fix kits that act like Restorative Items for Undead Constructs can also be bought in stores (or crafted while having access to a store) at equivalent prices. If an Undead Construct reaches -200% Hit Points, it is completely destroyed and turned into scrap worth 1/3rd of their creation cost.
