Ok, this is based off the real world illegal sport of Dogfighting, which most you can probably tell, I really don't condone in anyway, as the RP itself shows. Also, there's a bit of supernatural aspect in it as well.
Plot: Pokemon battles are normally friendly sporting confrontations, with little if any major injuries occuring. What most trainers don't know is Pokemon purposely hold back their strength in battle so they don't severely injure each other, or worse, and those that do don't push their Pokemon past that point, because not only is it morally wrong, the ways to force them to do so are largely illegal. But some...unsavory types do it anyway.
In a secret underground arena under the Sinnoh Region, an insane, evil man named Mako uses these illegal methiods to force Pokemon to go past the restrictions they'd normally put on themselves to battle for entertainment, and his own wealth. These Pokemon are often badly injured in the fights, sometimes even killed. But these Pokemon are beginning to reach their own breaking point, and are preparing to escape, but even if they escape the Dark Arena, there's still the matter of bringing down that horrible place and making sure no Pokemon will ever suffer in that awful place again. And worse than that, some Pokemon are truely loyal to Mako and Mako surely will want to regain his lost Pokemon, or make sure to silence them forever.
This RP is rated PG 13, due to violence but keep cusing low to none.
In the Dark Arena, Pokemon, like in dogfighting, are injected with chemicals that make them highly agressive and no longer hold back their power. When under the influence of these chemicals, their attacks are far more powerful than normal due to them not holding back, and blood is actuelly drawn.
You cannot kill another player's character without their permission, unless they quit the RP. NPCs can be killed in the arena though. I will decide the winner of battles between players, but if you lose a battle in the Dark Arena, you'll likely be badly hurt.
This is mostly a Pokemon centric RP, but there is one human role other than Mako you can be.
Please be respectful to others.
No Legendaries in the arena, I will allow weaker Legendaries to help them once they escape, just no Arceus or anything like that.
Pokemon used by the Pokemon Hunter do not require bios, unless you want them.
Have fun, its a roleplay after all.
