Pokémon Hoenn Click the spoiler for map of the region! Hoenn is a large region in the Pokémon World, with countless different kinds of environments. Trainers and all other kinds of people live and work here. But all is not bright and well... there are forces on the move that threaten to uproot the tranquility of the very world. Groudon and Kyogre have slept for eons and Rayquaza hasn't been seen since pre-historical times. If they should wake up uncontrolled, chaos would envelop the world. Because who could ever hope to control them? -- You can hop in and play as a trainer, a scientist, a breeder, a gym leader, a Team Magma/Aqua grunt or even as a leader for the teams! Feel free to use canon characters from games or anime or whatever. Or make up your own! Making up your own character will probably lead to the most fun and rewarding gameplay. Even though this is a free section without sign up requirements or anything, I'd like to ask you to try and add to some kind of story in your posts. Even if we end up with three different plots unravelling and some people not meeting up at all, we still want the people that DO meet up to have fun and be excited while doing that! So bring your creativity :3 And there's no limit or requirement to post length. One line is just as good as ten paragraphs, if you think that one line is worth posting. And yes, if you really want to, you can play as a pokémon rather than a human. And yes, it's ok to just loiter around and chat or play with another player's character for a while. Interaction is just as important as plot for a RP, after all. And yes, you may create and control how many characters as you like. Other than that, if you've played in this thread for a while and think you want to stay, please post in the OOC thread (when I get such a thing up xD) so that I know that you want to be counted if I make a list there about who's who :3 With that, I'd only like to say... Your very own adventure is about to begin. So jump in. ------------ -------- --- Erin Tell loosened the rope from the cliff she had been climbing down from with a confident swipe. She knew her knots and she knew how to make them hold and how to loosen them up. She also thought she knew her desert. But she had actually never gone this far into the sands of Route 111 before. Now she was inside a cave... a large cave that almost looked like a room. A great hall, shaped by forces long gone. A noise came behind her, a flutter of wings that sounded more like a buzz. "What do you say about this, Vibrava?" Erin asked her pokémon, putting her hand on her hips as she looked out into the darkness of the great underground hall. Cracks in the walls and ceiling let in light and sand from the storm outside. Vibrava soared into the darkness but soon came back. It didn't seem to have found anything of interest. "Oh," Erin said, disappointed. "Well. I do trust your treasure loving senses. If you find this place boring then there's probably nothing to see here." She started climbing back up to the surface, but she couldn't shake herself rid of the feeling that there actually was something strange with that cave. Almost as if it was some kind of ruin... Anyways, she shouldn't dive deeper into the mystery. This had been her last escape from the real world before she had to fulfill her family's wishes and become a traveling trainer. Just like her mother before her. And her grandmother before her. It was a tradition. Too bad all Erin really wanted to do was explore and study things. Not battle. But maybe she could catch some pokémon and pretend to be a serious trainer... while she went exploring and adventuring along the way? That was her plan, in any case. Up back on route 111, the storm had calmed down a bit. Vibrava plunged into it without worries; he was naturally adapted to endure this harsh climate. Erin pulled up her jacket and put on her goggles. Brittle humans needed more. Then they made their way back to Lavaridge Town's pokémon center.
