Starter Companion[edit]

At the start of your journey you set off with a loyal companion at your side. This creature gains the benefits of your Companion's Bond ability. Your starter companion can be any beast with a CR of ½ or lower. When you first gain your starter companion, you can attune your starter companion to one of 3 powers: fire, water or grass, giving them minor magical abilities and damage resistances. Their spell-casting ability for these spells is Wisdom and you use your level to determine the damage of the cantrips.

  • A starter companion attuned to fire gains use of the firebolt and produce flame cantrips. They also become vulnerable to bludgeon and acid damage and resistance to cold and fire damage
  • A Starter attuned to water gains the acid splash and shape water cantrips. They also gain vulnerability to slashing and lightning damage and resistance to acid and cold damage
  • A starter attuned to grass gains the thorn whip and druidcraft cantrips. The gain vulnerability to poison and acid damage and resistance to bludgeoning and radiant damage.

Your companion shares your alignment, and has a personality trait and a flaw that you can roll for or select from the tables below. Your companion shares your ideal, and its bond is always, “The trainer who travels with me is a beloved companion for whom I would gladly give my life.”

d6 Trait

5 My idea of hello is a flurry of licks to the face.
6 I jump on creatures to tell them how much I love Them.


Companion’s Bond[edit]

Your animal companion gains a variety of benefits while it is linked to you.

The companion obeys your commands as best it can. It takes its turn on your initiative, though it doesn't take an action unless you command it to. On your turn, you can verbally command your companion where to move (no action required by you). You can use your action to verbally command it to take an action it can make. If your companion has an ability that uses a bonus action, you can use a bonus action to command it to use such. A companion will continue to follow commands until completed, but then will act independently until given another command, but will likely focus on defending you, itself, or other allies. Your companion never requires your command to use its reaction, such as when making an opportunity attack. If you are incapacitated or absent, your companion acts on its own.

Your animal companion has abilities and game statistics determined in part by your level. Your companion uses your proficiency bonus rather than its own. In addition to the areas where it normally uses its proficiency bonus, an animal companion also adds its proficiency bonus to its AC and to its damage rolls.

Your animal companion gains proficiency in two skills of your choice. It also becomes proficient with all saving throws.

For each level you gain Above the CR of your animal companion, your animal companion gains an additional hit die and increases its hit points accordingly. Creatures with a CR below 1 count as having a CR of 1 for this effect.

Whenever you gain the Ability Score Improvement class feature, your companion’s abilities also improve. Your companion can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or it can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, your companion can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature unless its description specifies otherwise.

Your bond with your companions are so strong that they extend beyond death. If any of your Companions were to perish, You may conduct a ritual that takes 8 hours and consumes 100gp worth of herbs and gems to resurrect your fallen companion. You do not need to have an intact body to perform the ritual.

At level 1, Only the creature obtained from your Starter Companion feature can benefit from Companion's bond. When you gain your Capture feature at level 2, creatures you have enthralled and convinced into service may also benefit from your Companions Bond. At 2nd level, up to two creatures may benefit from Companions Bond at the same time, including your Starter companion. At level 5, this increase to 3, at level 10 this increases to 4, at level 15 this increase to 5, and at level 20 this increases to 6. You may, at any time, release a creature from you bond, allowing them to roam freely.


At 2nd level, you learn to enthrall the minds of lower beasts into accompanying you on your journey. As an action, You may force a beast type creature To attempt a Wisdom saving throw with a DC of 8+ your Proficiency modifier + your Charisma modifier. On a failure, the creature is charmed by you. While charmed, you have advantage on Charisma (Animal Handling) checks to befriend the creature, and the creature has disadvantage on attacks that target you or your allies. It may attempt another saving throw at the end of its turns to be freed of the charm. If the creature fails 3 saving throws against this ability, it may not attempt another saving throw until it completes a long rest, unless you or an ally intentionally harm or cause damage to the creature, it gets to attempt another saving throw, with advantage. While it is charmed, you may attempt a Charisma (Animal Handling) skill challenge to try to befriend the charmed creature, contested by the creature’s Wisdom (Insight) checks. If the creature has an Intelligence score of 4 or more the DM may require you to use Charisma (Persuasion) check instead. Each attempt takes an hour of peaceful communication and persuasion between you and the creature. If you succeed against the creature three times, and it has been treated fairly by you and your allies, it becomes helpful toward you. After a long rest the Creature may attempt another saving throw to free itself, but if the creature is befriended and treated well, it may decide to willing accompany you, gaining the benefit of Companion's Bond and no longer being considered charmed. The creature will now obey your commands as your new companion, but will likely not follow suicidal or self destructive orders. You may only have one creature charmed by this feature at a time.

At 5th level, you may also charm plant and ooze type creatures. At 9th level, you may charm monstrosity type creatures. At 14th level, you may charm constructs and elementals. At 20th, you may charm all types of creatures.

[design note: yes this means that at 20th level, you can technically charm your adventuring companions and make them animal companions (or maybe even lower if they are a construct or something). It is up to the DM whether to allow this feature to charm sentient creatures of any creature type or whether sentient creatures that benefit from companion's bond can be commanded by you or act independently. But I think its super funny, and think it would be a perfectly valid capstone ability to grant your allies the benefits of Companions bond. But a PC should never have control of another PC because of these features, move on another player's initiative or change their traits such as alignment,  and only gain the advantages of the features]

Storage System[edit]

At 2nd level, you gain the power to craft items that create pocket dimensions to magically hold creatures and items. Over an 8 hour period, you may spend 25 gp worth of materials to craft a pokeball. A pokeball is a small spherical magical object about 4 inches in diameter that holds a pocket dimension. As an bonus action, you may select a creature that benefits from your Companion Bond feature within 100 feet and place them into a Pokeball's pocket dimension. The Inside of the pocket dimension fits to be a near ideal habitat for the creature, all the creature's needs are cared for and the creature does not age. As a bonus action, if you are holding a pokeball, you may summon a Companion from its Pocket Dimension, or the creature can exit the pocket dimension at will, appearing in an unoccupied space within 30 feet of the pokeball. If your animal companion is ever reduced to 0HP, it is immediately returned to its pocket dimension and stabilized, as long as it is within 100 feet. Any conditions imposed on the companion are retained while in the pocket dimension. If the Pokeball is destroyed, the pocket dimension collapses and the creature appears within 5 feet of the Pokeball, or the nearest unoccupied space.

You also gain the ability to turn any storage device on your person into a bag of holding by spending 250gp worth of materials over a day. However, this bag of holding is only accessible to you. If any other creature was to reach inside, they would only find whatever it contained before it was converted. If you die, the contents of the bag spill out and it becomes a mundane storage device again.

Trainer Type[edit]

At 3rd level, you chose a Trainer Type. Choose between Ace Trainer, Combatant, Coordinator, Dragon Tamer, Hex Maniac, Professor; all detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd level and again at 7th, 11th, and 15th levels.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Hidden Machine[edit]

At 6th level, you may enhance creatures that you've bonded with to aid you in travel and exploration. Each companion you've bonded to can benefit from one of the following enhancements, and you may apply an enhancement to any newly bonded creature.

  • Fly: requirement, the creature has a fly speed. Benefit: Your animal companion gains an incredible spatial memory and is able to return to any location it has previously been.

  • Defog: The creature can make a small bubble of pleasant air that nullifies the effects of weather. As an action, an area 100 feet around the companion is cleared of weather for a number of rounds equal to your proficiency modifier

At 10th level, you have practiced the mental Dexterity and understanding of the battlefield enough that your ability to command your animal companions in battle have gained a new flexibility. When you use your action to command one animal companion to Attack, it can make two attacks, or it can make the Multiattack action if it has one. If you wish to command it to perform a non-attacking action, you may use a bonus action to command it instead of an action. If you have two animal companions present, you can instead use your action to command both of them to make one attack each.


At 18th level, you gain the ability to craft a Masterball, the Ultimate form of the pokeball. This is a magical, unique item, bound to your soul; it takes no more time or materials than an ordinary Pokeball, but you can only ever construct one Masterball. As an action, you may throw the Masterball at a creature you are capable of targeting with your Capture ability. It must make a Wisdom Saving throw with a DC of 15+ your Charisma modifier. If the creature has legendary resistances available to it, it must spend 2 Legendary resistances to automatically save from this effect. On a successful save, the masterball is lost forever. On a failed save, it is immediately transported to the pocket dimension on the pokeball, and charmed as per the Capture feature, even if the creature is immune to the charmed condition.You may then attempt to befriend it as if it was failed its saves against your Capture feature.

Pokémon Master[edit]

At 20th Level, you’ve gained mastery of your Pokémon’s abilities and your ability to guide their combat. As an action, you may select a feature or ability that one of your animal companions has used, and you may use that feature, as if you know it. Alternatively, you may instead let your animal companion immediately use that feature or ability as a reaction, even if it has expended all uses or needs to rolls to recharge the ability..
