So, this is the discussion thread. We will discuss anything related to the RP here and keep the thread free of OOC posts as much as possible. In due time, we will be discussing the following:
-Pokemon parties (everyone should try to have unique parties)
-How we're going to do contests/gym battles: My take is this...The trainer challenging the gym controls the leader as well and gets into the leader's character as well. I'd like to have the battles detailed; however, it is up to you guys on how long you want the posts to be. I intend my gym battles to last 3-4 posts depending on how many pokemon are used. As for contests, the coordinators will control their opponents in the battle phase. Since Joltik is the only coordinator, she shall also control the appeals. She will describe her own appeal and perhaps mention a few of the others. I guess since she's the only coordinator, 5 ribbons in 8 contests will be good. What do you guys think about this?
-Also, it is up to each RPer on how he intends to meet up with the other RPers. Those starting with the classical starters should get them from Proferssor Oak and the rest need to go to Oak to get their Pokedexes. In terms of getting to Pallet, it is up to you really. Since my character is from Hoenn, he'll travel to Vermillion City via ship and then hop on another ship to get to Pallet Town.
About the RP, one character does not necessarily have to travel in a group with the others, but that character must be in the same town as the others. (For instance, if the group is in Pewter, the loner must also be in Pewter, or at least not in Cerulean).
With that: Happy RP'ing and let's make this a good RP!
