Legends of the Forgotten
Whoo...my first thread I get to start. Please forgive the generic vague-ness of this rpg's plot...it's my first pokemon one.
It has been fifteen years since a shaky peace has settled over the Pokemon world. Fifteen years since Team Rocket began it's shadow rule of Kanto, the Orange Islands, and Johto, becoming a veritable mafia which the law has only limited power to hold in check. Fifteen years since the massive war between Teams Aqua and Magma tore the Hoenn region to shreds, leaving it only a shadow of it's former self -- a war which neither side won. Fifteen years since Team Galactic’s scientific prowess helped it become the force – seemingly from nowhere – that controlled all the scientific knowledge of Sinnoh and, consequently, the entire Pokemon world...and a force which now is unwillingly under the thumb of Team Rocket. Though Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh are all funtioning fairly normally, Hoenn is all but deserted, save for the pokemon and those who managed to survive the brutal war.
But now, things are changing again. Something strange is happening – the legendary pokemon are disappearing mysteriously. It began slowly, about twelve years after the war, without much notice. But now, the balance of nature itself is being thrown off due to the absence of these powerful pokemon, who are so intimately tied to the natural world, and people are taking notice. The wild pokemon are becoming more and more restless, some even attacking humans; lakes and rivers grow silent and dry; once rich fields of grass and vast expanses of forest begin to wither and die. No one knows what, or who, is causing these disappearances, but one thing is clear: it must be stopped.
You are an established trainer in this world, and either have captured or have strong ties to one of the legendary pokemon. Maybe when you were small, living on the shores of Lake Acuity, you always felt the wise, protective presence of Uxie, though you may not have actually seen it. Or perhaps you live near or on the Whirl Islands, and have earned the trust of Lugia or it’s young. Maybe you have actually captured a legendary pokemon, and earned it’s trust and respect to the point where it fights for you just as hard – if not harder – than your other pokemon. Whether or not you are still a trainer or have settled down, you must keep your connection with the legendary pokemon in some way.
Rules for Pokemon Teams
1. In the interest of fairness, NO PLAYER will be allowed more than ONE (1) legendary pokemon on their team, should they choose to have captured one. There is a maximum limit of ONE (1) pseudo-legendary per team as well. Also, no more than ONE (1) pokemon from the Uber tier may be present on a team. As there are some legendaries that are not in this tier, a player must choose between a legendary and/or pseudo-legendary, or an Uber tier pokemon. However, the legendary pokemon are on a first-come, first-served basis, so if a player wants a specific legendary pokemon, they must check to see that no other player has that pokemon. Pseudo-legendaries and Uber tier pokemon that are not legendaries, however, may be present on more than one team.
SIMPLIFIED: If a person has a Dragonite, a pseudo-legendary pokemon, they may also have a legendary pokemon, but not one that is in the Uber tier. Another player may also have a Dragonite on their team, but not the same legendary pokemon, and it also may not be in the Uber tier. If a player has an Uber tier pokemon on their team, they may have neither a non-Uber legendary or pseudo-legendary pokemon also on their team).
2. Pokemon will be allowed to know a total of SEVEN (7) moves instead of the regular four – however, if a player wishes their pokemon to know fewer than seven moves, this is acceptable.
3. No more than SIX (6) pokemon may be carried around by a single player at once. However, if your character has settled down somewhat and no longer travels, they are allowed to keep all their pokemon with them, so long as they never travel or battle with any more than six. The other pokemon a character has caught, but does not carry around, are kept at the lab of the professor from the region they are from (Orange Islands and Sevii Islands pokemon go to Professor Oak)
4. Try to be original when creating a team. You can use your team on Diamond or Pearl if you want, but if every player has a team made up of the same OU pokemon, this is gonna get real boring real fast.
5. Please do not use Pokemon that you have made up yourself and do not really exist (aka Fakemon). ‘Shadow’ pokemon from the game Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness are also off limits, please. Only the pokemon which already exist in the main series may be used in this rpg.
6. There is only one legendary pokemon that is known to have offspring – Lugia. If a player wishes their trainer to have captured Lugia, please specify what has happened to either the parent or offspring (whichever the player did not capture) that was left behind. Also, this does not rescind the rule that legendaries are on a first-come, first-served basis. If one player wishes to have Lugia on their team, no other players may capture the remaining Lugia. However, they can provide a solid backstory wherein they forged a connection of some sort with the remaining Lugia, unless the first player has stated somehow that the other Lugia has died/left and hasn’t been seen since/has been stolen/etc.
7. For the purposes of this rpg, Latios is alive and available for use.
Other Rules and Things to Keep in Mind
1. Though this rpg begins in the Sinnoh region, your character may be from any of the known regions, including the Orange or Sevii Islands, and will travel to most – if not all – of the other regions. For convenience’s sake, the Orange Islands will be considered part of the Kanto region. The Sevii Islands, being so far geographically from Kanto, will be referred to as a region somewhat of their own; however, they will have the same starters and pokemon as the Kanto region. Please give your characters a legitimate reason to be in the Sinnoh region at the beginning of the rpg.
2. No player may create more than TWO (2) trainers. This limit includes players who may want to make their trainer character involved with the disappearances of the legendary pokemon. However, there is no limit on characters that are NOT trainers – your character’s parents or siblings, for example. Generic characters, such as Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny, or the like, will be shared. Professors will be played by a single person, however, this does not cut into their trainer limit, and are also available to play on a first-come, first-served basis. To avoid clutter, however, please try and keep the number of non-trainer characters to a minimum.
3. To encourage creativity and originality among the players, characters from the anime or games (Ash, Cynthia, Paul, May, Gary, etc.) may be played upon PRIOR REQUEST ONLY, but the player will not be allowed a second trainer unless needed and otherwise noted. Characters in charge of organizations (such as Giovanni or Cyrus) are available for normal play, once again on a first-come, first-served basis, and do not require a prior request. Characters such as Jessie, James, and Meowth, however, may all be played by one person, as they are a group. Another player may request the original player to play one of the group in particular, and they will then play that character in conjunction with the original player.
SIMPLIFIED: I am playing all three members of Team Rocket. RandommemberX sends me a private message asking to play Jessie. If I agree, then I will still control James and Meowth, while RandommemberX will play Jessie with me.
4. This rpg works most easily if the character being played is NOT a 10-year old just starting out on their journey. This is the group of trainers who are least likely to have a connection with any of the legendary pokemon. However, if you wish, you may create your character this way – just present a believable backstory as to how this 10-year old has a connection with a legendary pokemon.
5. Before posting an intro, a player must post a brief biography of their character(s). This bio must include a reason why the character(s) are in the Sinnoh region. Also, the character's main team must be posted. If applicable, a trainer is allowed up to TEN (10) 'alternate' pokemon, which are pokemon that the trainer owns and battles with, but are not a part of his/her main team and are not regularly carried around by the trainer. Alternate pokemon CANNOT contain any 'extra' legendaries or pseudo-legendaries. Members of the main team may be substitued by an alternate at any time the player wishes, through PC exchange, but the six-pokemon limit for a team remains in place. Characters who are not trainers do not require a bio beforehand and can just be incoporated straight into the intro.
Here goes nothing! Hope you all enjoy it!
Cadence "Cadi" Maria Walker
Charles "Chase" Samuel Walker
Chase and Cadence are as close to identical twins as fraternal twins can get; both have dirty-blonde hair, Cadi's mostly in a low ponytail, while Chase's is longish by boy standards, coming down to his earlobes in a shaggy sort of way, and sapphire-blue eyes. At 19, Cadi is the shorter of the two by a mere half an inch -- 5' 6 1/2" to Chase's even 5' 7". Both prefer to dress casually for comfort above all, Cadi embracing blue jeans and Chase loose cargo pants, both pairing them with simple t-shirts. Cadence's favorite types are water, grass, psychic, and dragon, while Chase's run somewhat opposite with fire, fighting, bug, and steel. Though they excel at tag-team battles, both can hold their own very well apart, though their methods are different.
Though the younger of the two twins, Chase is extremely protective of Cadence. His personality nearly matches that of his favorite type: he's got a bit of a temper, generally he is cheerful and friendly, and passionate about what he believes in. At times, he can be mistrustful, and he usually has very accurate first impressions of people. He is a bit of a klutz at times, but absolutely dedicated to Cadence and his pokemon. His battle strategy relies mainly on 'hit-and-run' tactics, with high-powered offence and not much concentration on defense.
Cadence is the calmer half of the duo, often the voice of rational thought when Chase's temper gets out of hand. She's extremely logical and methodical, and this has led her to be an excellent strategist in battles. Her style is to boost her team's defense, then hammer away at her opponent with super-effective moves. This makes her a slightly more efficient battler on her own than Chase, who is constantly trying to match her. However, her social skills leave a bit to be desired.
Chase and Cadence were born in Olivine City, Johto, where their father was a sailor. They were very close throughout their childhood, so when their parents split up when they were about six, they were devistated. Cadence was taken to live in her mother's hometown of Blackthorn City with her, where she discovered that her mother was actually a part of the Dragon Clan of the city, related to both gym leader Clair and the Champion Lance. Chase stayed behind in Olivine with their father, who often took his son out on his boat when he got a little older in an effort to distract him from the sister he knew he missed.
The twins finally reunited in New Bark Town, at Professor Elm's lab on their tenth birthday where they had gone to recieve their first pokemon and begin their journeys. It was an emotional reunion, and the pair have traveled together ever since, and grown even closer because of it. Though they avoided travelling in Hoenn, due to the restoration efforts of the war, both recieved Hoenn-native pokemon through trades and -- in the case of the male and female Ralts -- rescue from a Pokemon Center where they had been abandoned. Having been travelling for nearly nine years, the pair decided that the time was right to go visit an older cousin they had in Sinnoh -- the daughter of their father's sister named Laura -- and maybe settle down a bit before eventually returning home to Olivine.
Bio: Naive and cheerfull. He's protective of his pokemon, and hates crime
16 Years old.
He is fast and agile, but isnt very strong.
His parents were killed when he was 3.
Though, he can be a bit of a idiot sometimes...
This is an amazing first attempt at a Pokémon RPG :D (Chase and Cadi return, eh? ^^ )
Patrick J. Baxter
Even at the young age of 10, as the other young Pokémon trainers around him battled and competed in Pokémon contests, Patrick knew none of that was for him. He was too intrigued by the mysteries of the Pokémon world, and he wanted to dedicate his life to finding out as much as he possibly could, alongside his trusty team of Pokémon.
Now, at the age of 21, Patrick has established himself as important figure in the Pokémon research world, and his voracious thirst for knowledge had brought him to the Sinnoh region a little more than a year ago.
Note: Despite preferring not to battle, Patrick's Pokémon are strong and prepared for anything that may occur, even if it is the occasional battle.
Patrick grew up in the quaint Viridian City. An only child, he often made friends with wildlife around him. His mother worked at the city's Pokémon Center. He never saw much of his father, but he knew he had an important job to do as an explorer, and he held him in high regard. Perhaps it was this knowledge of his father's passion for exploring the unknown that fueled his similar desires.
When he was young, he became a sort of apprentice to Professor Oak, and he enjoyed helping him with his research. Professor Oak in turn taught him almost all he knew about the Pokémon world, and the two became close friends. Not long after his 18th birthday, Patrick parted from his mother, Professor Oak, and Viridian City as he was determined to research Pokémon all over the world.
Now, after researching the legendary Regis, Patrick is in the Sinnoh region to uncover yet another mystery and to discover whether or not the legends of the King of the Giants are true.
((Sorry if it's a bit long. I wasn't sure whether or not to include my character's connection to a legendary Pokémon or if it should be played out, but I'll edit my post accordingly))
Evan is calm and relaxed, having grown up in peaceful Agate Village. He stays cool under pressure, knowing that getting worried about things will just lead to more problems. He is very formal, having grown up with few people his age except for occasional visitors to the residents of the village, but is very protective of his friends. He is very close to his Pokémon, seeing them as members of his family. Every day he misses the four Pokémon that he has left with his parents, and often switches his team around so no-one will feel left out. He is a skilled battler, having learned from the many veteran trainers of Agate Village, but is not especially interested in battling - he does battle if asked or if he has to, but does not go seeking people to challenge.
Evan grew up in the far-off region of Orre, where, as a result of being far from Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh and staying out of international relations, the people were at peace following the end of the Shadow Pokémon crises. He lived with his parents and grandparents in Agate Village, where he cared for injured Pokémon found around the village, and some chose to stay with him after recovering rather than returning to the wild. His first Pokémon, however, was his Nidorina, which hatched from an egg given to him by another villager. Having spent his whole life so close to the Relic Stone, Evan feels close to Celebi, the Pokémon honoured by the stone, and once had the fortune of seeing Celebi visit it. Inspired by the legendary Time Travel Pokémon, he set out to the Sinnoh region, to try and do something to give Celebi a joyful future in a better world.
((Whooo...been a long time since I've done a human-only RPG. Good first one, BTW. Has good-long term potential. *Carefuly picks two out of her rather large roster of charactors.*))
Reed Leo Marksman. (15)
Bio: Reed is talented with a flute, and always carries one with him. He's rather short in height, but trim. He has lavender-colored hair that is tyed into a stubby ponytail at the back. His backpack is always slung over his back. He has dark-colored red sweats and a heavy blue-leather top, seemlingly suited to a colder climate, though nobody knows why.
Background: Though he has his roots to Alamos Town, Reed has spent most of his life traveling the world as a Pokemon trainer, while also doing tracking reserch on Pokemon for his uncle back home. When he was younger, he had a chance encounter with Cresselia in the gardens of his hometown. In recent times, he has been plauged with horrible nightmares seemingly fortelling the events of what is to come. After leaving home again to seek help, he ment up with his old friend Rolland, who used to travel with him. Together they decided to solve the mystery of the disapearing legends.
Rolland Marrol Key (14)
Bio: Though younger, Rolland is noticably taller then Reed. He seems to be all black-and-white. He has short, matted black hair that tends to look messy, and glasses that always seem to be falling down his face. He has a white top that would seem more like a lab coat then an actuall shirt, and balck sweats.
Background: Rolland hails from Sunyshore City. When he first began his journey, he left with his Grumpig-then Spoink-for Johto, were he ment up and traveled with Reed, and two other compainions, for about a year. After traveling Johto and other places around the world, Rolland returned home. Four years later he ment a legendary Pokemon, Shaymin. Shaymin discussed the upcomming events and alowed Rolland to capture it. They then headed out for Mt. Coronet, at the instruction of Shaymin, only to bump into Reed on the way. Reed discused his nightmares, and they decided that power in numbers would be a good thing.
^_^ thank you to everyone who's joining! BUT!
Son of the Sky! Latias is still a legendary pokemon, no matter what tier it may be in without the Soul Dew. So you must choose between Latias and Phione. Thank you for you cooperation.
Everyone else, I accept your characters and will be starting the rpg shortly! I warn that I will not be around a lot to update it at first (this probably wasn't the smartest time to put it up here...oh well), but never fear, I shall not abandon you!
Is there still time to join?
Melik is 19, about 6", with dark-ish brown hair. He wears a green shirt covered by a black jacket and plain jeans. His backpack is filled with all sorts of items, though he only knows how to use about half of the stuff. In battle, his strategy changes with his Pokemon. He is well-adapted to being in the wild.
Melik grew up in the busy streets of Jubilife city. His parents were often gone for one thing or another, so usually when he got bored of the city (which happened often), he would go into the surrounding routes, and occasionally the other cities. After years of exploring through places like the Oreburgh gate, route 202, and route 218, Melik is able to cross almost any terrain, and during his adventures he found that he rarely needed to call on the use of HMs. At one point he visited Canalave in the middle of a crises. Tons of people were becoming trapped in their dreams, and soon he too became trapped. The culprit was Darkrai, but only to warn everyone of future events that would come. He was the first one to actually listen to Darkrai, instead of trying to destroy it, so Darkai slightly warmed up to Melik, and agreed to join his team. Melik was released from the nightmare, along with everyone else, to find that the whole town learned about the cause of the widespread nightmares, and ranted on about how Darkrai is so evil. Melik promised himself to show people that Darkrai isn't the evil kind that some of them describe, and from that point Darkrai has travelled with him, hiding in his shadow.
There's always time to join! ^^ thanks for taking an interest!

This looks really good. I just hope it doesn't suffer a terrible death. Tell me if I'm doing anything wrong. Just one thing, do characters from the anime/games have to wear the same clothes, or can we modify them?
Bio: Asthe leader of Team Rocket, he always has to look sharp. He wears a red dress suit with a black tie. Said tie is always in a half windsor knot. He wears black shoes that are shined to perfection. He has a ring with his organization on his his left hand as well as a wedding ring. At 55, his forehead has a few worrymarks, his cheeks are a bit wrinkled, but other than that he looks perfectly fine. His hair is cut in a military cut.
Background: As a young boy, Giovaani has always shown great intellegence. His mother, who reigned over Team Rocket at the tiem, put him inn a private school for geniuses in which he came out as the salutatorian(by only one point). After that, his motherr trained him in running Team Rocket and its finances. SHe gave him serveral basic Pokemon and told him before she died, they were to be powerhouses.
He began to train them all, on top of keeping Team Rocket's finances in check, night and day. He developed a special love for Persian and was afraid to tell his mother about it's lack of power. So he hid it away and showed his mother his evolved behemoths after years of training. She seemed rather pleased and therefore, gave him control of Team Rocket.
Now 30 years later, he watched as Team Rocket's conrol over Kanto was drfting away. He kept eharing from his agents irrrating tales on how they keep blasting off again. He was so sick of it, that he decided to travel over to Sinnoh and see if he can recurit better agents there. That might have been his public reason, but his privaate reason was so he can find some scientists to recreate or recapture what should have been his. Mewtwo.
Nope! Feel free to modify clothing -- though technically Giovanni didn't need to have Deoxys in his party, considering his relationship with Mewtwo, but don't worry too much about it.

So it's a good thing that I didn't have a plot set in stone for this yet, huh? ^.~ Have fun!))
Were it not for the difference in clothing and hair length, no one would have been able to tell apart the two figures lounging on a bench near the southwestern area of Hearthome City. Both were fairly slim, with the same shade of dirty-brown hair, matted and sticky with sweat, and the same tired expressions on their faces which looked too old and worn for their true ages. The one with the shorter hair dressed in loose cargo pants and a light blue polo, the long-haired one in jeans and a red shirt.
No one took the time to notice their heavier-than-normal breathing, as though they had just run a great distance, or the fact that they were sweating more than usual, even for 95 degree weather, or the fact that the longer-haired one was female. Or even the fact that both had six pokeballs attached to their belts.
The shorter haired one got control of his breathing first, opening sapphire-blue eyes against the sun, wincing, and then turning his head to face the girl beside him. "Man...we haven't done that in a while."
The girl groaned slightly, then sat fully upright and opened eyes identical to the boy's to look at him. "No kidding. We're out of practice."
The boy smirked a bit. "Not to say it wasn't fun."
A smrik returned to him on lips exactly like him. "Now when did I say that, brother?"
The boy smiled a little wider, then stretched his limbs out in front of him. "Ah, man... it's hot, Cadi."
"No, really, Chase? I hadn't noticed." the girl he called Cadi retorted, more than a hint of sarcasm in her voice. But it was also mixed in with tiredness...it was just too hot. "Ah, forget it." she sighed, moving the newspaper someone had abandoned further away from herself before setting back down.
A comfortable silence again existed between the twins, until Chase sat up once more. "Cadi...?"
"Do you ever regret not going to Hoenn?"
Cadi glanced at him, slightly confused. "How do you mean?"
Chase sighed, running a hand through his tangled, matted hair. "It's just...everyone thinks we're so good. Two of the best they've ever seen. But there's still people we haven't beat, pokemon we haven't seen, places we haven't been. How can we accept those claims when --"
Cadence suddenly bolt upright, her gaze trained on the enterance to Route 208. Without a word, she grabbed the newspaper beside her and shoved it in front of herself and Chase, as though they were reading it.
Chase, agitated, tried to push her away. "Cadi..."
"Shut up! Grunts."
Chase peered carefully around the edges of the newspaper; there indeed were a pack of Galactic Grunts heading into the city, a Team Rocket member who looked to be in command of the squad among them. "I can't believe you let two mere children best you, Galactic Gunk." he scathingly spat at two of the unitard-clad men as they followed the southern street towards Route 209. None of the Galactic Grunts looked happy about being under his command, Chase noticed.
One of the men scowled. "It wasn't our fault. You should have seen what they used against us, it's no wonder they beat us. Sui--"
The Rocket cuffed him sharply on the head as they passed the fountains and approached the benches where the twins, huddled together in a cold sweat despite the heat, sat as still as they could be. "Idiot!" the Rocket hissed. "Don't speak of them -- unless you want to draw attention to us!"
The other Galactic Grunt who had been on the recieving end of the Rocket's anger guffawed slightly. "Aw, what's it matter? They'll never stand up to all of us at once." he said as -- mercifully -- they passed the banches and continued towards the far route.
"They can't have gotten far." the Rocket observed. "You there, and you and you -- head toward the Pokemon Center. If they aren't there, wait ten minutes. Then, come catch up with the rest of us at Solaceon's Center if they still have not arrived. When you have a visual, engage in battle and capture. Understood?"
"Sir!" the three specified grunts saluted, a little disgruntled, before turning up into the city proper. The rest of the police force continued out of the city.
Cadence sighed in relief when they had gone. "Well...all we have to do now is wait ten minutes --"
"Cadi, we can't."
Cadence threw her brother a scathing look. "Why not?"
"Look, we might be able to get some information on what happened to Laura from them."
Cadence sighed. "Chase...they're grunts. I doubt they'd know anything."
Chase shook his head. "Team Galactic resents Team Rocket for not permitting them to rule Sinnoh as they please, don't they? These guys hate their commander -- they'll do anything to see him demoted and sent back to Kanto. That includes giving information to the likes of us -- it'll make their commander look bad."
It took a moment, but finally, Cadence nodded slowly. "All right. To the Pokemon Center, brother. But if they battle us..."
"We just won't use Cairo or Bennu. They aren't the ones who caught us outside the city -- they don't know our faces. All they know is that two twin kids have captured a couple of legendaries."
Cadi nodded again, then stood. "To the Pokemon Center then -- and a three on two battle."
Chase smiled at his sister reassuringly as he also stood. "We've faced worse, sis. Now come on, let's go."
((See you all at the beginning of July! EDIT: I have asked Matkin22 to keep an eye on this rpg while I'm gone, and given him permission to use my characters, so no one freak out if that happens, all right?))
((Seeya then! :D ))
Patrick let out a humble sigh as he stood in awe at the Snowpoint Temple. His fellow researchers were in just as much shock at the enormity and prestige of the temple. He took another look at his faithful team and smiled. Anna, a red headed intern from Jhoto, shivered as she jotted notes down in her silver notebook. Marco, a well-known archeologist and Patrick's long-time friend from Kanto, examined the structure and design of the building, probably assessing what period the building was built in. Finally, Patrick took a look at his trusty Pokémon. His Lucario, who looked as though he was not affected in the slightest by the bitter cold, stood still and dignified as he too studied the building. To the left, his Cradily couldn't help but shiver from the cold, despite being wrapped up in a red, wool blanket. Patrick once again offered his Cradily the safety and warmth of a Pokéball, but she adamantly refused; she had always loved seeing firsthand the wonders of the ancient Pokémon world, herself being a Fossil Pokémon.
"Well everyone," he said, with the excited smile still covering his face, "What'dya say we get started?"
Anna smiled and nodded nervously; this was her first real assignment, and she was nervous about messing it up. Marco grunted and walked toward the building; for those who didn't know him, it was hard to tell if Marco was even remotely happy about something, but Patrick and Anna could tell from the gleam in his eyes that he was even more excited than they were.
"Ready, guys?" Patrick said to his Pokémon. The Lucario folded his arms and gave a stern nod, while the still shivering Cradily shook her head ecstaticly. "Let's get to it!"
The six of them slowly walked up the steps leading to the entrance of the Snowpoint Temple, all of them wanting to savor the moment. Marco paid close attention to the height of each step and the distance between step one from the next, while Anna drew simple drawings of the ancient markings that covered and surrounded the entrance. As they slowly walked closer and closer to the entrance, each of them could feel something. None of them knew exactly what it was, but they could feel a strong and unrelenting power emanating from deep within the temple.
((I like the sound of this one!))
Born in Sootopolis in Hoenn, Donald is 21. When He was 11, His family fled the Hoenn Reigon becuase of the war between Magma and Aqua was growing more powerful and hostile. They moved to New Bark Town, Johto, and he got his first pokemon, a Cyndaquil, from Professor Elm. He traveled all over Johto and Kanto for four years, afterwhich he went to Hoenn to gather information on his deserted, destroyed homeland. He stayed there for three years, studying the pokemon and the terrain. Eventually returned to Johto, deciding to travel to Sinnoh after a year at home. By this time, he was 20 and was headed to a new land with new dangers. He traveled around Sinnoh for a year, and then the Legendaries started dissapearing.
He's tall, has green eyes, with brownish blonde hair about down to his eyes. He has a strong build from traveling and having to live on his own. He wears a pair of kahki cargo shorts and a red t-shirt.
During his stay in Hoenn, Donald was traveling along the old Route 131, he found a tower stretching high into the sky. He climbed all the way to the top, jumping over holes and using his pokemon to seal big holes with rocks, to where Rayquaza, one of the Weather Masters, lay dying becuase of an attack from Groudon and Kyogre, whom were still active and fighting after not being contained by Magma and Aqua three years prior. Rayquaza had tried to stop them from fighting but had been injured badly. Donald quickly got to work, having to know how to heal his pokemon without a Pokemon Center after living in Hoenn for three years. He stayed at the tower for a week, nursing Rayquaza back to health and slowly growing a bond with it. After the week was over, Rayquaza joined Donald, owing him it's life. Since then, Rayquaza has traveled with Donald back through Johto and on into Sinnoh.
((I'm gonna go out on a limb and start to keep this moving along. If that's not cool, just tell me and I'll delete my post))
Two boys and a small white Pokemon collapsed underneath a tree. It was the only one for miles, and they where hot and tired. Reed leaned up against the side of the tree.
"This is strange." He said, looking around at the open plain before them.
"What?" Asked Rolland and Shaymin at the same time. Reed noticed they had been doing this often.
"Well," began Reed, "for starters, this weather is way hotter then normal. Secondly, there should be a forrest here, according to this map."
Shaymin looked bleek at Reed's prediction. "That's so...sad...all the Pokemon that lived here...it must have been bueatiful."
Rolland nodded. "I wonder what happened."
"Maybe Team Galactic or Team Rocket happened." Reed shuttered as he remember his previous experience with Team Galactic.
Shaymin looked tired, so Rolland returned it too its Pokeball. "Unlike you I would have liked to have been a Pokemon."
"Nerd.", said Reed. "Believe me, being a Pokemon isn't nearly as fun as it sounds."
Reed pulled a water canastir out of his bag and turned it upside down.
"Just like this barren land," he thought, "once so full of life, but now full of sadness."
"Well," said Rolland, "Pastoria City isn't too far from here."
