    Default Pokemon Journey: Kanto (Closed)

    Start Up: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f426/pokemon-journey-kanto-start-up-126780/

    I've been off the forums for a while now but I felt like RPing again so here it is.

    Standard Journey RP. Follows a group of trainers all getting their starter Pokemon from Professor Oak. From there its your choice.

    Rules:

    1. No Godmodding - Self explanatory and pretty much a given in every RP.
    2. Keep Mature themes to minimum - While I don't care all that much keep in mind that there are some people sensitive to this kind of stuff. So no excessive swears words (f-bombs and what not), No hardcore Romance (Your character can have romance but keep it PG-13), and of course no excessive violence (This is Pokemon after all, not Mortal Kombat).
    3. Be fair - You can't win every battle and if you try to it'll just ruin it for everyone else. Take a loss every once and a while, it can be just as progressive to the RP to lose as it can to win.
    4. Try to stay active - If you want to quit the RP, let me know. We can work out a realistic way for your character to disappear, or someone else can take control. We just don't want someone disappearing into thin air.

    Battle System:
    The battles will work anime style. When facing against an NPC like a Gym Leader I will tell the you what Pokemon they have but from there you write out the battle. It can be in one long post or in a span of a few but in general you are playing both sides of the battle. Against random trainers, that's up to you. Unless I bring someone in for story purposes, you can decide what Pokemon they have and everything.
    If facing against another player than the to of you will play out the battle post by post. This is where rule number 3 comes into play. Try not to draw battles out to long. If not victor can be decided between the two battlers than I will decide the winner.

    Wild Pokemon:
    While the RP takes place in Kanto don't let that limit your options. Wild Pokemon from other regions and areas can be found almost anywhere. Just be realistic about it. You are not about to find a Salamence on Route 2 for instance. However anything can be solved with a strong reason behind it. So if you want to say someone abandoned a Bagon than just clear it with me first.
    As for Legendary Pokemon, they will not show up at random. If they appear it must be predetermined by me.

    Backstory:
    Yes this is just a Journey RP however I think its important to have a little understanding about what has been going on in the Pokeworld before the start of the RP.

    There have been recent attacks on the Region of Kanto. Places such as the Seafoam Islands, Mt. Silver, and Cerulean Cave have been flooded with members of the evil Team Rocket. While Team Rocket used to be an easy problem to deal with, they now have become more of a threat. There Pokemon are more powerful, they have stronger tactics, but the big thing is they appear to be in control of the Legendary Bird Zapdos. In order to fight them, a team was formed called the Champions, this team consists of Elite 4 champions from across the regions. Lance from Kanto, Wallace from Hoenn, Cynthia from Sinnoh, and Alder from Unova. The team has been successful in stopping a handful of attacks but there has been no success in finding Team Rocket's base of operations.

    Starter Pokemon:
    The Pokemon that Oak is offering are not just the original 3 from Red and Blue. Here is a list of the Starters you can take. If someone has already chosen the starter than there username will be added next to the Pokemon.

    Bulbasaur - BeastieBayleef

    My SU

    Name: Logan Grey

    Age: 14

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: He has brown hair and blue eyes. He is about 5 feet 10 inches tall. He is about average weight and keeps generally fit. He wears a black, zip-up, hoodie and a blue t-shirt underneath. He wears faded blue jeans and a pair of black and white running shoes. He has a tan backpack that he stores his stuff in, except for his Pokeballs which he keeps on his belt. He has a dark blue hat which he wears occasionally. In his bag he packs a dark green raincoat and a pair of brown hiking boots. He wears a pair of fingerless gloves and has a silver watch on his left hand with a pokeball symbol on it.

    Personality: Logan can be a bit headstrong. He always means well for his friends and family but he is prone to make quick decisions that could possibly negatively affect himself and those around him. He is a quick learner and very knowledgeable about Pokemon. His knowledge about Pokemon gives him a strong understanding of them. While he can in no way understand their speech, he can usually understand their motives and intentions. When he finds he makes a mistake he is quick to blame himself. While this means he never holds anyone but himself responsible for his actions, it also means he tends to carry a lot of guilt which can damage his self-confidence at times. In general he loves to have fun. He considers time spent with Pokemon to be time well spent and this goes for training, battling, and just playing.

    History: Both of Logan's parents were born and raised in Pallet Town and Logan is no different. He has gone to nearby areas with his family before but he has never left the Kanto region. His parents are both Pokemon trainers. While neither of them have gone far enough to become particularly notable they have done enough to surround Logan with Pokemon for his entire childhood. Logan has never technically had a Pokemon of his own however he has trained and battled with some of his parents Pokemon giving him some good experience. When he heard that his neighbor Professor Oak was giving away Pokemon to new trainers he asked his parents if he could get one and start his journey. They quickly accepted and helped him prepare. Logan has a pretty good understanding of the area around Pallet Town however he has no real knowledge of any where further than Pewter City except what his parents have told him and what he has read on the internet and seen on TV. He feels he is ready although he will soon see that his knowledge won't bring him so far and he'll have to take the help of anyone he can to find his way around. At the beginning of the RP, Logan is finishing what preparation needs to be done before he goes as his excitement is constantly rising.

    Hometown: Pallet Town

    Requested Starter: Totodile

    Hullo, I"m MostlyAffectionate. :3
    I thought I'd sign up for this. It sounds like fun.
    So, eh, I saw that you could have as many characters as you want, so I'm posting two sign ups.

    Warnings: Writer confuses 'angst' with 'depth', writer doesn't know anything about people, writer doesn't know how to write.

    Also, evil Pokemon, yes/no? >___>;

    Sign-Up:
    Name: Lysander

    Age: 17

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Lysander stands at just over six feet tall with broad shoulders and enough muscle mass not to be considered scrawny. He has a sharp, angular face framed by a mane of shaggy black hair which is long enough to brush his shoulders. His eyes are sharp and narrow, with bright amber irises that give him a predatory look. The teen's expression is constantly set on 'dissatisfied' mode, something seemingly common for his age group. He typically wears tight, form-fitting clothes, normally button-up long-sleeved shirts and black pants. He carries his belongings in a black dufflebag.

    Personality: Lysander's appearance and initial stoicism can be off-putting or even intimidating to some (he's no favorite of small children), but time will soon show a lovable ball of jaded cynicism and contempt. He's world-weary without the burden of being world-wise.
    Lysander also has a bit of a temper, coupled with his tendency towards sadism can lead to some pretty brutal bouts of violence, though he's had to keep his temper in check in recent years as he no longer has the excuse of 'just being a kid'. He often takes out his anger on inanimate objects (and helpless trees) when something (someone) sets him off.
    When he's not angry, though, he's pretty quiet and calm. Keeping to himself and preferring that others do the same. Which is usually fine by said 'others', as Lysander isn't exactly a joy to be around.

    Lysander doesn't hate people though, and usually regrets being cruel or rude as soon as whoever he's mistreated is out of sight (these feelings of remorse don't last long once he's back in the general presence of humanity, and don't hold your breath for an apology). He likes the company of people, and will usually try very hard to keep his less savory personality traits under control, this doesn't leave much good, of course.
    Lysander enjoys dry humor, wit, and sarcasm. Since his form of humor usually involves insulting others, though, it's usually not appreciated.

    History: Lysander was born and raised in Pallet Town with his mother, father, and occasionally brother, who was older by a good sixteen years. Oscar, the big brother, was a Pokemon trainer and often travelling. Sometimes he'd take a younger (ironically less annoying than current) Lysander to different cities in Kanto and Johto. Their time together became much more sparse, however, when Oscar met another traveler named Cybil, and the two settled down together in Johto for a while.

    Lysander's parents had their youngest child later in their lives, and his mom was in her fourties when he was born, having wanted another child after Oscar had left the house. They new early on Lysander was going to be different than raising their older boy, he was quiet, and seemed to become aware of the world sooner, learning faster. They mistakenly believed that Lysander would be a nicer, easier child to bring up. Then Lysander's temper started showing up. He didn't get along with other kids, and would often try to hurt them if they got close. The only people he didn't seem to lose his temper at (often) were his parents and Oscar, when he was around.

    Lysander was never too interested in Pokemon, and was more often annoyed by them. While growing up he more enjoyed scaring them away from his house than playing with them. He especially disliked Rattatas, thinking they were dirty and annoying. So when he turned ten his parents didn't really offer to get him started as a trainer, thinking the boy would turn it down. He might've, though Lysander was still interested in travelling like his big brother.

    Lysander's father got sick when the boy was nine, and didn't get better. For a while they moved away from Pallet Town, into Cerulean where there was a better hospital. His father lived a longer life there, and lived another three years. Shortly after he died, Lysander and his mom moved back to Pallet. Oscar had been having his own problems during that time, and ended up moving back home to help raise his little brother, also bringing along his own son, Soren.

    Oscar stayed another few years, and got to witness the worst of Lysander's violent faze. The boy didn't put up with people his age well, and ended up putting one of his schoolmates into the hospital during a fight when he was fourteen. He avoided major punishment, such as being set away from home, but ended up getting suspended and nearly expelled from school, and had to attend a lot of counselling. Lysander heard a lot about his daddy issues that year. He told Soren that, really, he just liked people a lot better when they were in pain.

    Oscar started travelling again within the last couple of years, leaving Soren behind with his family. Lysander got into less and less fights (and made sure whatever fights he did get into didn't happen at school). Recently, Soren has wanted to start travelling like his father, and Lysander had gotten roped into tagging along with his nephew, as Kanto is starting to seem like a more dangerous place with Team Rocket's recent increase in power and competence. Lysander himself has gotten it into his head that he can investigate and take down Team Rocket on his own.

    Hometown: Pallet, Kanto

    Requested Starter: Pikachu

    Other: He's EVILLLLLL! Or, well, just unpleasant. Thought I'd reiterate.


    Name: Soren

    Age: 13

    Gender: He's a he, almost certainly

    Appearance: Soren is very looks very much how Lysander did when he was a kid, and also completely different. Everything about Soren is softer than the older teen, rounder features and kinder eyes, which are also more yellow than the orange-amber his uncle has. Soren is also pretty short, taking his age into consideration, he hasn't quite reached five feet yet. His skin is somewhat tanned and freckled due to spending much of his childhood outdoors. He's not very muscular, and has a bit of pudge, though he can keep up with others on the move just fine when he has to. His black hair is also straighter and shorter, only reaching his mid-neck in the back, and stopping just past his ears near the front. One reason for its comparable tameness could be that it's constantly being pinned underneath the boy's hat, which is a simple black baseball cap with a red stylized 'soul' stitched onto the back. He wears looser clothes, such as zip up hoodies and cargo pants, and carries everything around in a rather large backpack.

    Personality: Soren is a pretty friendly and social individual, but hanging around his uncle so long (kind of odd to call them that, as you can count their age difference with one hand), he knows when to shut up and keep quiet. He's not exactly brave, and likes to avoid conflict when he can. For someone so young, he takes the route of caution surprisingly often. Along with the route of caution, he'll also go for the route of least resistance, and is not above cheating, if he thinks the goal is important enough.

    Soren loves Pokemon, having grown up with them, though he is extremely wary of Psychic type Pokemon and moves, and prefers to avoid them if and whenever possible.

    History: Soren's parents were both trainers who met while travelling in the Johto region, and who were both quite young when their son was born. They settled down in Ecruteak for a time, both liking its nearness to nature, and the big city of Goldenrod. Always a plus.

    Neither Oscar nor Cybil particularly planned on being parents, and neither were very good at settling. Though they obviously cared about each other and Soren, they were both restless and even a bit unhappy with their situation. This led to a rather rocky relationship, lots of petty arguments and unnecessary stress, usually solved by taking short trips around Johto, which helped some, but only fueled the longing both parents had for their old adventurous lifestyle. Cybil's Espeon, Harvey, was only too aware of the ex-trainer's emotions, and began to become quite restless himself. Knowing that the two no longer wished to stay together, the Pokemon thought he'd do the two a favor and remove what was keeping them stuck. After all, both parents had thought often enough how much easier it'd be to go back to how things were if Soren wasn't involved.
    While his actions did lead to Cybil and Oscar's eventual separation, things didn't go quite how Harvey had planned. The Sun Pokemon soon found himself wild for the first time in his life, leaving behind what was to be another year of arguments, a group of uncomfortable and confused former teammates, and a rather traumatized seven year old.

    Oscar ended up taking Soren back to Kanto some time later, and though Cybil promised to visit, he hasn't seen or heard much of his mom since. Soren and his dad moved in with his grandmother and her other son. Both of which Soren had met before, but never clearly remembered. The kid learned to stay out of Lysander's way. The older boy was always on his best behavior around his nephew, but that wasn't saying much.

    Eventually though, the two grew on each other, and were able to tolerate each other's pressence without either wanting to strangle the other or go hide under a rock. Most of the time.

    Oscar left again when Soren was eleven, once he was certain that his family was 'stable'. Lysander was slowly becoming less violent towards people, Soren wasn't jumping at his own shadow, and his mom was only crying on certain dates. No one really heard from him much after he left, though that was always the case when Oscar got caught up in adventures.

    Soren has apparently inherited his parent's nomad-esque tendencies, and has been getting restless in Pallet. He spent many months trying to convince his grandmother he was ready to go (though she, apparently, wasn't ready to give up the time she'd missed with her grand-kid), eventually he talked her into talking Lysander into coming along for protection. Something that wasn't nearly as difficult as it should've been, though Soren wasn't about to question it.


    Hometown: Born in Goldenrod, raised in Ecruteak. Moved to Pallet Town due to parents separating and psychotic Espeons.


    Requested Starter: Whatever's left over after sign up. Eh... as long as it isn't Ralts.


    Other: He's... um... a decent dancer but a terrible singer. Just an FYI.

    Name: Carrie Sanders

    Age: 16

    Gender: female

    Appearance:


    Personality: While she has a bright face, she's actually very shy and has trouble interacting with people, mostly because she can't talk. It takes a huge amount of time to get friendly with people she's known for some time, but she's caring and willing to help those in need. She thinks a bit too much all the time and often gets lost in thought. She loves to see how pokemon attacks can differ in contests and wants to learn more.

    History: Lived in Lilycove City, Hoenn, because of her mother's business in Contests. Carrie hadn't been able to speak ever since she had fallen in the water from the Lilycove lighthouse. Being only four at that time, she hadn't been able to swim, thus received a shock and lost her speech ability. The lighthouse was closed after the accident. She doesn't fear water but she still dislikes it. Since she can't talk, she can only communicate writing on paper. Due to her disability, she hadn't been able to make much friends. At age six, she started working in the Contest Hall helping the coordinators dress up their pokemon and brush them. She was fascinated with all the beautiful attacks that could light up the stage, and loved how Contest battles were different from actual battles. She decided to travel to see all kinds of pokemon and experience battles as well as try become more outgoing than she currently is. After learning Prof Oak was giving out starters, she chose to travel to Kanto to receive one.

    Hometown: Lilycove City
    Requested Starter: Ralts

    Please notify me if you need more details.

    Destiny Queen Accepted. I don't need more details however make sure you are able to handle her lack of speech. For example it would help if she always had a notepad with her or something of that nature so communicating isn't always a chore.

    I'm going to do that. In cases of battle, I'm going to make use of Ralts psychic powers so she can command via telepathy. Is that okay?

    Name: Dale Parker

    Age: 11

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Dale's eyes are a brown color, with a subtle amber tint. His nose is thin and features a straight bridge. He has almond hair, which goes down to the bottom of his neck and flares a bit. His skin is pale white. Dale typically wears a plain white tee shirt, boot-cut blue jeans, white socks and a pair of red-and-white Running Shoes. He also wears a necklace, a Sharpedo tooth on a string that he received as a gift.

    Personality: Dale is generally cheerful, and outright avoids conflict. He is a jokester, and sometimes can not be taken seriously. While his comical attitude is always good-natured, he may sometimes get himself into bad situations when trying to lift the mood. His thought process is very deep, but it is hard to see this from the things he says, considering his dialogue can be quite zany. He enjoys good-natured rivalries, one of which he has against his sister. He certainly doesn't mind learning things from failure.

    History: Dale was born in Cerulean City, a year before his sister. He was raised by his mother and father in a moderately-sized house near the local gym. Dale sometimes trained Water-type Pokémon with his parents and with the Gym Leader, Misty. However, he didn't form a close bond with them as his sister Olive did. While most of his time was devoted to Pokémon training, Dale also spent time studying to keep his grades up.
    One day, the family went to a water show at the Cerulean Gym. On their way back, the group witnessed a wild Growlithe lighting a building ablaze. While the Growlithe was halted and the flames extinguished, Dale was intrigued by the foreign Fire-type Pokémon, and began spending time studying similar creatures. He eventually decided that he wanted to break away from the Water-type culture of Cerulean and train Fire-types.
    Soon after, the Parkers moved to Pallet Town out of paranoia regarding the Growlithe attack and other misfortunates occurring about their hometown. A short three months passed, and the two Parker children were allowed to set out on their Pokémon journey.

    Hometown: Cerulean City.

    Name: Olive Parker

    Age: 10

    Gender: Female

    Appearance: Olive has deep green eyes that get incredibly large whenever she's excited. Her hair is a dark brown shade, going a quarter of the way down her back, and crowning the top of her head with a circular braid. Her skin is milky white, close to the same tint as Dale's. She usually wears an black frock, white flared jeans and pink sandals.

    Personality: Olive is a bit timid around a crowd, but once she gets to know somebody, she can be very talkative. She is very sensitive to others' feelings, and almost always thinks twice before speaking. She has difficulty persistently pursuing a goal, unlike Dale. Around Pokémon, she is perhaps the happiest, and enjoys caring for her own. Olive is also an excellent battle strategist.

    History: Olive Parker was born and raised in the Kanto region, specifically, Cerulean City. She and her older brother trained Water Pokémon in the Cerulean Gym alongside Misty for some time. Olive especially became acquainted with the Water-types at the gym, and continued her work at the Gym even after Dale discontinued his Water-type training.
    After some of the city was lit on fire by a Growlithe's flames, the Parkers moved house to Pallet Town. Pallet was a new experience because of its small, quiet nature. It was here that both Dale and Olive would start their journeys.

    Hometown: Cerulean City.

    Requested Starter: Piplup.

    I will post the Start up in a couple of days. I want to see if I can get a few more people before I close Sign-ups at the start of the LP.
