Some Monks (Dungeonomicon) like to travel with pokmon. Hai-yah!
Level: Odd levels
Replaces: Fighting Style (1 and 7 mandatory, others optional)
Benefit: At first level, you gain a single pokemon and the Control Pokemon and Train Pokemon abilities. Black-belts usually pick Fighting Type Pokemon, and sometimes Flying or Rock Type.
At levels 3, 5, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17 and 19 you may elect to let your pokemon learn a Fighting Style instead of you - this is of the same type as your own (such as Master Fighting Styles at the right level).
At level 7, you gain Increased Awareness.
At level 11 you may elect to, instead of gaining a Master Fighting Style, become the Fighting Gym Leader. You gain the Melee Badge, and have its effects even when not physically carrying one. Crafting a new one to hand to another takes an hour. You also gain a second Pokemon, with a level 4 lower than your primary one, which must have Fighting Pokemon Traits. At any future odd level you may elect to, instead of gaining a new Fighting Style, increase the secondary pokemon's level to equal that of the primary one.
