Instinct [T 16+] (pokemon)
No matter how far we come, no matter how much time goes by, no matter how civilized we think we are there is always a beast inside waiting to come out. Our primal side is what drives us. It guides our basic actions, the ones we must do to survive. What happens when that primal side is the only thing guiding us though? Forget your conscience, your morality, your humanity and what’s left? A monster so ancient we have almost forgotten it existed.
That’s not what they said when you signed up for this project. Sliph Co. has been working on creating a device to allow everyday people to perfectly understand their pokemon and any pokemon, and now they needed some people to test it. It was good pay and seemed like a simple task, which it was, to start. The device itself could be likened to a large bracelet or bracer, but there was a small interface on it to calibrate the device. The devices, which were nicknamed ‘Pokebracers’, were capable of holding six pokemon similar to a pokeball, but along with being able to send out the pokemon it would partially combine the pokemon and their trainer on a mental level. The two beings could think as one. That was only the start though.
Three months into testing Sliph Co. upgraded the ‘Pokebracers’ to combine the trainer and pokemon even further. The trainers would acquire certain traits from the pokemon and even use some of their moves. It was groundbreaking, but also terrifying. There were some moral implications being debated. They were moving into rather dangerous territory here. Still they pressed on. With the ‘Pokebracers’ fully functional Sliph Co. went into its final stage of development. The ‘Pokebracers’ were mass produced and stored to prepare for distribution in the future, but these ‘Pokebracers’ were based on the original model. They couldn’t combine people and pokemon on a physical level. In thanks for your assistance in testing you were allowed to keep your special ‘Pokebracer’.
There was a catch though. You could only keep it if you challenged the Kanto league. Sliph had already organized it all. The gym leaders and elite four were willing to cooperate with the project, and had set aside a few new rules and standards to fit the new league.
1. Gyms can be challenged in any order, and their teams will be based on the strength and prowess of the opponent.
2. Trainers may merge with their pokemon to battle, but only with one of their pokemon per battle for safety reasons.
3. Trainers can only merge at the point when a pokemon would be sent out, not in the middle of battle.
With your new connection with your pokemon are you ready to take the challenge? Are you willing to trust your instinct and that of your pokemon?
1. the obvious forums rules and general manners that go with RPs.
2. The gyms teams are using the HG SS pokemon, but levels and number of pokemon change based on how strong you are. Ex. To start Brock would have the team he has at the beginning of red version, but if you went to him last he’d have his full team all at raised levels. Also Koga is still the fuchsia gym leader, (he’ll use a combination of his league and gym teams) and it’s the 1st gen league.
3. This is 16+ based on violence. I do expect pokemon battles to be a lot more painful, and when you merge with your pokemon I expect to see you feeling about to die when you are unable to battle. The 16+ also carries over to romace which I want to see kept in line. Finally the 16+ is for the moral implications of the messing with nature, and what it will lead to. SPOILERS!
4. Accuracy. I don’t approve of the whole 100% accuracy system so here is the one we will be using:
5. Levels will hopefully be simple to all of you:
