Currently I'm planning to create a new game with idea similar to pokemon with legendary pokemon and beginning pokemon like pokemon sun and moon starters. However will a new summoning-thing idea a good choice? Since I see that there are famous games used this idea like original Pokemon or Persona (somehow similar).

If you're new, Welcome! I'd highly recommend going through the crash courses and reviewing the Stencylpedia. Making a game like "Pokemon" or "Persona" requires a fair amount of knowledge in Stencyl and such a scope has the potential to burn you out fast. Think of the smallest idea you could possibly make...now think even smaller...that's what you should aim for. A Game like Pokemon (at it's base) would require understanding of topics like:

-Dialog
-Attributes
-Data/Stats/Lists (Pokemon use this, and you will be amazed with how much data you will have to keep track of(stats, level, xp, abilities, unlocks, evolutions...) This is probably the bulk of the game and jumping straight into something like this might be overwhelming...it certainly can be for me at times.
-Turn based battle sequence

It can be done, It has been done, but it's not an easy endeavor for a first project imo, but I wish you the best of luck!
