Pokémon; we all train them, we all collect them, we all want to be the very best, like no one ever was. But have you ever thought to look at things through their perspective?
Story: At the risk of sounding like Professor Oak, welcome to the world of Pokémon! Across all regions, there are hundreds of thousands of trainers. Even more numerous then trainers are the Pokémon. There’s the tiny Bulbasaur to the mighty Arceus, and more being discovered every day. Some trainers use Pokémon for battles and others as pets. There are even nefarious crime organizations that use them to kill and steal. Be warned that criminals are around every corner, waiting to kidnap the next Pokémon that walks by! My name is Professor Raiguy. I am the world’s top Pokémon Professor…no, I don’t mean a professor that studies Pokémon. And you are?
Gender: Are you a boy or a girl? Okay, I’ll stop making game references now.
Name: What you wish to be called during your time in the RP.
Species of Pokémon: This one’s pretty self explanatory. Just put whatever Pokémon you want to be. WARNING: ONCE YOU START, YOU CAN NEVER GO BACK!
Personality: Reach into the deepest, darkest corner of your heart, and pull out your inner Pokémon. That is your personality.
Description: Do you have any features that make it stand out in a crowd? Are you a shiny? Are you a green Jigglypuff? Are you a purple Mankey? Were these mutations the cause of an experimentation or rare disease?
Background: Are you a wild Pokémon? Do you have a trainer? If so, who? Were you experimented on by Team Rocket and poked with point, pointy needles?
Trainer (Optional): Like I said, this is only if you’re a trained Pokémon. You might want to give a brief description of your Trainer too. Are they energetic? Are they quick to anger? Are they (dare I say it…) members of Team Rocket or some other crime organization? Have you decided to follow in their footsteps!?
…Your very own journey is about to... you know what, just go… Wait, I almost forgot, you have to read the rules first! (Don’t worry; you’ll get there soon enough!)
- No godmoding- It’s okay if you dodge an attack or two, but you can’t dodge every single hit, taking out armies of enemies at a time. Use a move like discharge instead to be borderline fair.
- Choosing A Pokémon- There are a few rules for this;
a) You must choose a Pokémon that you own in the URPG.
b) You may choose a previous form of that Pokémon, but it may only evolve in this RP if you have the Pokémon it evolves into in the URPG.
c) You may not have more than one main Pokémon character. It’s okay if you occasionally say something as your trainer, or another one of their Pokémon, but don’t treat them like a second character. Treat them as you would your Pokémon in any other RP on the site.
- Fighting- there are a few rules for this.
a) The fights are all anime style. Game rules don’t always apply.
b) You may use any TM, HM, BM, EM, etc. in your Pokémon’s move pool during the RP.
c) If you lose a battle, you are down for a while; unable to get back up, but under no circumstance will you die. (Unless you say so)
d) If you feel it would add dramatic effect, you may evolve during the battle.
- No double posts. Edit your last post or just wait. The only exception is if you sign up and start right away.
- HAVE MUCH FUN! Failing to do so will result in instant boredom. Remember that this is not meant to be a very serious RP, but one where Pokemon can communicate freely to one and other. There's no real main goal, although grunts are a bit of a problem...
