I was thinking of ways to expand the game of pokemon and i came up with PokeChess! It is basicly chess with the side effect of: instead of capturing the opponent straight off you battle to see who wins the piece.
The pieces would be original chess pieces 1 king, 1 queen, 2 bishop, etc. You would have 16 pokemon as your chess set and they would compete across the board untill forcing a check mate just as normal chess.
This will make up for the fact that you can only carry 6 pokemon at a time and also make for more interesting duels.
If this utter crap then back to the drawing board, if not then i'd be pleased to see the replies.
I posted this in the rby forums because i prefer rby to gsc but i'm sure there could be a gsc version of PokeChess.

Just because someone else has done something similar doesn't mean it's a bad idea.
Actually, considering how popular the game was/is, it means you've probably got a good idea there.
