Pokemon Light Blue/Grey (Closed. Unless you want to be a bad guy)

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by Ruko, Apr 20, 2014.

  1. Welcome to the Armai Region! Located quite a considerable distance away from any of the other regions, Armai, over time, developed unique cultures and great technology. When it was invaded by crusaders from the Kanto region, however, this culture was buried and destroyed, and the pokemon that inhabited it were wiped out. Any humans that remained were enslaved by the Kanto-ians. Later, people from the Johto region came, and helped defend Armai from Hoennites seeking to take it for themselves. Hoenn did manage to make it's mark though, and deposited all kinds of their strange life and people there. Unova and Kalos were next, populating the area with another wave of immigrants, all seeking a better life. Sinnoh laid their claim to it too, as history books found there seemed to mention the lake trio, which they took to mean that Armai should be a part of Sinnoh, created also by Dialga, Palkia and Giratina. Finally, warriors from the Ransei region arrived. As they were used to warring, they quickly took over the entire region, however, they eventually disappeared, leaving Armai as unified and peaceful as it once was.

    The Region:

    Maerva City
    [​IMG]

    Maerva city, the capitol of Armai, and the only port town, lies on the northern coastline. It has a peculiar mix of technology from every region, and follows a strict layout. In the centre, is a single huge structure which contains every business and shop in the city. The docks are directly next to this to allow goods to quickly be transported to their destinations. Around this is a band of residential and entertainment facilities, where the majority of the citizens live. The outer ring is agricultural or quarry based. There are two gyms located in Maerva, the first specialising in Electric type pokemon, and the second specialising in Dark type pokemon.

    Gahue Town
    [​IMG]

    Located due south of Maerva is the mountain town of Gahue. It is winter all year round here, and serves as a resting point for travellers, be they going to or from Maerva, or heading west, into the Old Lands. Here gathers many pokemon of the ice type, however the peaks of the mountain are the nesting grounds of flying and even steel type pokemon. The gym leader favours the ice type. The people of Gahue are incredibly friendly, and are used to seeing and aiding travellers. Being people of tradition, they hold many festivals and haven't changed their architecture one bit since the days of ancient Armai.

    Kova Town
    [​IMG]
    The town of Kova rests on the gentle slopes in the south east of Armai, and despite it's relative distance from everything, it is where most non-commercial visitors go. The houses are cramped together and every street is an alleyway. The pokemon professor of Armai is here, and the gym leader, while still relatively unchallenging, has mastered the bug type. The people here are quite religious, and the key landmark is the chapel on top of the town. There is only one way in or out of Kova, which is through Kova Forest, to the west.

    (more locations being described later when I get round to it.)

    This RP will start out as a few people just beginning their journey in the Armai region, and challenging gyms just as any other would, however later on I intend to make the story far more in-depth and involve a possible end of the world. Also you might discover mega evolution somewhere along the lines. Feel free to create your own pokemon, but if I think they're either unrealistic or gen 5 uncreative, then i'll ask you politely to scrap them. They must have either 1 or 2 types, 0 - 2 extra evolutions, 1-2 possible abilities, and a completed move learnset. Please create every pokemon in the evolution tree. A mega evolved form of either a new or old pokemon may be added, but it must fit the same criteria - creative and realistic. Actually, I encourage you to create pokemon because I intend to use this and the Armai region as the basis for the rom hack i'm making.

    Current Characters:
    Meira:
    Show Spoiler

    Name: Meira Vardri
    Age: 13
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Seria is relatively energetic and a very skilled pokemon trainer, however she still has quite a lot to learn about the world outside of her head and she can make clumsy mistakes. She is dedicated and stubborn, which quite often overshadows her intelligence.
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Biography: Meira has always wanted a pokemon, but had to stick to the ones her friends and neighbours had for quite some time. Eventually, she managed to exploit a loophole in the reasons her parents had given for not having one, and set off, 3 years late, on her own journey. As she walked to Kova town, the official league starting place, she noticed that she was being followed by a Hyttria, which eventually became her first pokemon. She's hoping she can still get a starter from Professor "I'm not sticking to the pattern" Sandstone.
    Starting pokemon:
    Name/nickname: Hyttria (level 9)
    Species: Hyttria (surprisingly)
    gender: Male
    nature: rather passive, but aggressive if provoked
    Ability: Refridgerate
    Movelist: Tackle, Aqua Ring, Bubble


    Dahlia:
    Show Spoiler

    Name: Dahlia Graye
    Age: 16
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Dahlia is an open, kind and forgiving person. She is very clever, and enjoys solving puzzles. Her friendliness sometimes gets the best of her, as she has been hurt and abandoned in the past, and she also tends to put too much stuff on her plate.
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Bio: Dahlia's father is a gym leader, and she looks up to him greatly. As a child, she used to go to his gym all the time and spectate the fierce battles going on. She wants to go on a journey in the Armia region and become strong enough to come back home and beat him
    Starting Pokémon: Sheeper lv.5


    Aaron:
    Show Spoiler

    Name: Aaron Levane
    Age: 16
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Aaron is very independent and prideful, only putting her small amount of trust into her Pokémon. It is very difficult for her to open up to others, but when she does you can count on a kindhearted friend. Unfortunately, her attitude towards strangers and adults can be very negative and full of sarcasm -- this is probably due to issues in her youth. If you look past the attitude and sass though, Aaron is very fun and willing to help and give her Pokémon the best life possible.

    Age: 15
    Gender: Male

    Appearance: [​IMG]Biography: After being bullied in school, Joseph moved with his family to Armai from the Johto Region in order to find a better school institute. He had a wide array of pokemon, however, most of them were stolen from the now defunct Team Rocket. He never found them again. The only pokemon he has left is the Hoppip his mother gave him. He was noted to be adept in battling, not as good as some of his other friends, but better than the majority of the class. However, Maura, his Hoppip, isn't the best pokemon for battling. As such, he often has doubts about her abilities, which she tries to vindicate.
    Starting pokemon: Hoppip Level 8

  6. hah nice! Might make a water/ground wolf specifically to hunt it down :D Accepted!
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  7. Noo! DX

    But then I'll do like Red and beat you even if your starter Pokémon has type advantage :3
     
  8. Hah. I'm using that guy's starters as the Armai region's starters cos he's got some good art going on there. Its hard to find nice creations that remain pokemon-style art.
     
  9. I know. I was lucky to have found that account in the first place, there are a bunch of cool designs.
     
  10. OK starters done except I need a high power steel type move for the grass pokemon, preferably with recoil, and next I shall make my own character. Also i think ive almost overloaded the internet. It may come to a point at which i'm not here for 7-8 days.
     
  11. I'm interested, and should have a CS ready after I draw all evos of my party, which I will try to keep as little OP as possible.
    You can expect it up sometime this week, but it might take a bit longer due to real life and researching moves, coming up with names, etc.
     
  12. So, I'm bringing my Sheeper from another region... Does that mean I can pick another starter from the Armia region?! :3

    (Haha prolly not)

Unfortunately, her beginning attitude towards strangers and adults can be very negative and full of sarcasm -- this is probably due to issues in her youth. If you look past the attitude and sass though, Aaron is very fun and willing to help and give her Pokémon the best life possible. She's good at blueprinting out strategies and whatnot.

  15. @Lady No, but you may stumble across one of them later on. They're rare, but not impossible to find.
    @Cameron Ok then. It may have started by then so try to be fast.
    @EMajyyks Absorb and razor leaf are moves, not abilities...
    @CrystalScorpion96 Accepted.. though i'm not sure what was going through your head when you decided on hoppip.

    So, 3 characters who all find social situations rather unpleasant. Great!
     
  16. @Raitoningu Simple typo -- sorta in a rush at the time. All fixed.
     
  17. Accepted then.
     
  18. Oh yeah I can't remember whether I put this anywhere and i'm too lazy to check: You'll be able to find and catch pretty much any legendary, with the exception of some weaker ones, such as celebi or jirachi. I'm not explaining why yet, but know that it'll be after the fourth town.
     
  19. Hmm, I sort of want to change Dahlia's personality if everyone is going with that theme... Is that OK?
