Have you dreamed of being a Pokémon Trainer, to go around catching Pokémons and wild creatures!?


Proudly presenting: The Poké Ball Mod!!!

The Poké Ball mod is the first mod from the PokéRim mod series, an ambitious long term project that we had announced on 4th April 2017 (http://walkingproblem.com/2017/04/04/announcement-of-tentative-plans-for-pokerim-pokemon-mod-for-rimworld/).

This mod introduces the Pokeballs, which are a form of one-use grenades, which can be used to tame wild animals to become part of your colony. Each of them can be crafted with the appropriate researched required done.

Gone are the days, where you wonder how on earth rimworld, are you going to finally get a pet panther.

Now its possible!

Grizzly Bear? Sure!

Cobras? Why not!?

Thrumbo? Are you good enough to catch it? =P

– 5 Types of Pokeballs: Apricorn, Poké Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, Master Ball
– 5 Research for each of the Pokeballs
– Pokeballs are craftable using vanilla structures (crafting spot for apricorn, machining table for the rest)
– Intricate mathematical combat calculations to determine success or failure
– Pokeball capture attempt’s stats and calculation viewable from error log
– Colonist that successfully tame a wild animal will gain animal skills experience
– Amount of skills gained from taming is according to the combat power of the animal
– Colonist’s animal tamed stats will be updated with each successful tame using a pokeball
– Tales will tell of how your colonists tamed the animals
– You can bash up the animal to make it easier to tame!


Poké ball Combat System
How the maths / dice roll works:

Difficulty = Wildness of animal (which means 0 = totally not wild, 1 = totally wild)
CombatPower = Default combat power listed in which animal (this determines how many elephants vs boomrats will appear in a manhunter event) / 200 <--- elephant is 310, thrumbo is 600, boomrat is 50
AnimalHealth = By percentage of health. 100% health = 1, 10% health = 0.1
So the “PokemonLevel” = Difficulty + CombatPower + AnimalHealth

Random Number = between 0 – 1.0 (this is for randomness)
CasterStats = Animal Taming Skills ( Animal Skills 0 = 0, Animal Skills 20 = 0.22) x 10 <-- This is in accordance to the vanilla game, where a level 20 will have 22% chance of successful tame
PokeballLevel = Weapon Damage / 100

Pokeball Caster’s “diceroll” = Random Number + CasterStats + PokeballLevel

So the determination of whether is a successful tame, depends on which number is bigger. PokemonLevel or Caster.
If PokemonLevel > Caster, taming fail.
If PokemonLevel < Caster, Success!


For some reference (full health):

Chicken: 1.11
Boomrat: PokemonLevel 2.0
Panther: PokemonLevel 2.575
Elephant: PokemonLevel 3.3
Thrumbo: PokemonLevel 4.985

Level 0 Caster (with pokeball of damage 50): 0.5 ~ 1.5
Level 20 Caster (with pokeball of damage 50): 2.7 ~ 3.7
Every Animal Skills Level gains 0.11 in CasterStats stats.


After each pokeball hit (not miss), you will be able to check the stats behind the Pokeball Battle, and figure out what should be your next move.

If it fails, should you get another colonist with higher animal skills?

Or should you use a higher level pokeball?

Or should you bash up and down the animal and try again (a downed animal can lose as much as 0.7 points in their PokemonLevel points)?

Its your choice!~

Improvement had been made to the pokeball codes to allow missed pokeball to not disappear after being thrown, as well as indication of the pokeball missed, as it had been really cryptic about what actually happened in the previous version when it misses (especially when the pokeball disappears). So this update shall make the pokeball really usable now. I also edited the chinese translation as well as added a japanese translation on my own as a separate download.


– Added miss mote to know the pawn missed
– Allowed pokeball to not vanish if it fail to hit target
– Added a japanese translation version (as a separate download)
– Edited the chinese translation to better reflect the original english version

- Amended the mistake in the CasterStats (x10, not x5)
- Added RicoFox233 临时の工作服's Chinese Translation

Anyone want this in B19?

@The Cowardly Reaper - Yeah, if its just pure friendship, pokemon catcher would not need to summon their pokemon to beat the wild pokemon half to death before they can catch it... LMAO
The Cowardly Reaper Aug 9 @ 2:14pm 
Oh. A way to "tame" a few easy Thrumbos by beating them half to death. I like the sound of that. Pokemon has always been known for promoting friendship.
