SMALL UPDATE Please Redownload
Because of the problem where sims were not being promoted and skills were not displaying properly (thank you to everyone who let me know of this issue) I've set all required skills to zero, so as long as your sim goes to work in a good mood, they will be promoted. I've also fixed the GUID issue, the GUID number is now 0x002A9604, and if any of you were getting the "crappy GUID" message, this message will no longer appear. Thank you very, very much for your feedback and help during this time

Sorry for the delay, those of you who have been waiting!!

Now your sims finally have the chance to work in the field of pokemon! They have ten levels to progress through:
Fanatic ($100)
Lab Assistant ($250)
Field Researcher ($500)
Groomer ($750)
Amateur Trainer ($800)
Indigo League Champion ($1,200)
Undercover Rocket Grunt ($1,500)
Expert Coordinator ($2,000)
Gymleader ($3,500)
Pokemon Master ($5,700)

The simmer who orignally requested the career listed the job levels, but, unfortunately, the custom career request forum was closed before I finished, so I had to write my own levels. I only have Uni and NL, and it works fine for me, so if anyone has only the base game or OfB or Pets, please let me know how it works in your game, and if you experience any problems, leave a feedback post and I'll try to fix it ASAP.
This career is adult, non-graduate, and I did not use any custom outfits, carpools, or rewards, there is a chance card for every level, and I used a new GUID, so it should not be overwriting anything, if it is, let me know.

As with all mods, be VERY careful, and back up your game and DO NOT try editing without first reading the tutorials in the Create section. Do not redistribute this career, but you may use it as a base, if you like, as long as you give proper credit when you upload.

Thank you to Bidou, and Psion, whose tutorials I used, and to Emma Barrett, whose career template I used to make this.

I also made a pokemon major (here: http://www.modthesims2.com/member/s...ad.php?t=213576) but it is not required to play this career.

To get this to appear in your game, all you have to do is extract files to your download folder, then the it should show up randomly when your sims look for a job in the paper or on the computer. If you're not patient, you can use boolprop to force your sims to get the job by shift-clicking on the paper. If the job doesn't show up even when you use the boolprop method, please let me know, there may be compatibility issues with the career I need to fix.

Enjoy, send me your feedback and whatever suggestions you may have! Ciao!

I'm glad you like it. I was thinking about maybe making a Rocket grunt career, and possibly a coordinator one, too.

I'd love to be able to make some pokemon pets, but I don't have pets . If I ever do get it, though, I'll definitely make some.

So I guess for now I just have to stick to careers and majors .

Thank you much for this! I'm excited to used it. Interesting that I came around so soon to its release.

I've heard people talk about a Team Rocket career; I've actually written descriptions for the various positions, but I'm not experienced and/or driven enough to make it happen.

Would you be interested in having them? If you ever choose to make a seperate career track, they may come in handy.

Again, many thanks and a MUCH needed addition ^_^

Yeah, that would be great if you could send me the descriptions. I have a hard time making those up =]. I think a Team Rocket Career would be a nice spin-off of this career.

It is so cool!!! I've tried it and does work fine. The only problem, I can't get a promotion.... My sims had been working for 5 days and everything is good. He's always in good mood and never had been late to work... Maybe it's just a bug...I have all the EP, maybe that's the problem.. Am I the only one who has this problem?

That's odd, I'll try testing it some more to see if that happens on my game.

BTW, you haven't had any trouble with the chance cards, have you? I haven't, but I just want to check.

The chance cards are just questions that come up randomly while your sims are at work, and you can select one of two choices, or you can just ignore it. There'll be a random outcome, and your sim will either gain a skill point, some extra cash, or a promotion, or they'll lose a skill point, lose some money, or get demoted.

I just want to be sure this part is working okay

This is great, now, all we need is a Team Rocket career to go along with it, and all will be right with the world.

My sim got a promotion just fine when I testing it, but I used the Sim Modder to max all her skills. When you used the career, did your sim have any skill points?

so cool! I dunno if this is a good idea, but maybe bring gym leader to level 8, and make 9 elit four, and 10 Pokemon Chapion(master), but ty soooooo much! I downloaded the scholar to! :D

I learned this from a wise person, your future depends on who you hang out with, if you hang out with dumb people who do dumb stuff, you will be dumb, if you hang out with smart people who do smart stuf, you will be smart to, never forget this! =)

It should show up normally when you look on the computer or in the newspaper (I was also a bit confused when i first started downloading custom careers ). If it's not, try using the boolprop method (enter boolprop testingCheatsEnabled true, shift-click on newspaper, select Adult Jobs)

You need skills to be advanced to the next level, but for some reason on the game, they're not displaying. I'm trying to fix that now, hopefully I'll be able to and then I'll update the career :D

EDIT: Career is now updated, your sims should now be able to be promoted whether they have skills or not
