Pokemon: Rise of Team Rocket

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by Alarice, Jul 12, 2010.

  1. After an entire day of plotting, I was forced to give in! So, here it is!

    The Story

    This is a world full of wonderful creatures known as Pokemon, who act as companions, helpers, and sometimes even as partners in battles with their human trainers ...

    We all know the story. But in this twist, the trainers start off when they are in their teens and Pokemon battles are much more fierce. Team Rocket is a more dangerous threat than they were in the games, with Giovanni having disappeared, the strongest have risen to bring the world to its knees for their own personal gain.
    The place the story begins will be determined by the players. We are using the Kanto and Johto regions.

    The Pokemon

    We are using the Pokemon from Generation 1 and Generation 2. I will allow a few Pokemon exceptions from other generations but no legendary Pokemon, please.

    The Pokemon PC Storage system is allowed. Please note, you must catch the Pokemon first. Simple, right?

    The Rules

    1) No god-modding. Sure, you can get caught up in the heat of the moment, but if it involves someone else's character (even their Pokemon), get permission to do it to them first.

    2) This is a mature RP so please keep graphic violence and sex (because that's always possible in RPs) "off screen." Black it out, censor it, just keep the details to yourself.

    3) Depending on what "class" of Trainer you are, determines how many Pokemon you have. If you are just starting out, you have one Pokemon partner. If you're a Gym Leader or a Team Rocket Executive, you get up to 6.

    The Characters

    I will be limiting the number of Team Rocket Executives and, of course, Gym Leaders, to keep things balanced.

    GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

    Character Name: Salih
    Gender: Female
    Species/Race: Human
    Age: 25
    Birthplace/World: Blackthorn City, Johto
    Occupation/School/Grade: Team Rocket Executive/Gym Leader of Goldenrod City
    More: She is often absent from her Gym so good luck finding her, aspiring Pokemon Champions!

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance:
    Show Spoiler
    Although she often wears more conservative outfits
    Strengths: Quick reflexes; amazing agility; keen eyesight
    Weaknesses: Not physically strong; needs two-three hours more sleep than the normal person; allergic to nuts
    More: Unless she is catching a Pokemon, Salih doesn't throw Pokeballs. She prefers to hold them while calling out the Pokemon inside.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: To strengthen her Pokemon; to test the will and power of any Pokemon trainer who manages to find her
    Talents: Pokemon training; cool head under pressure (unless dealing with relatives or Reis); exploiting loopholes or bending the rules
    Inabilities: Dealing with her relatives; dealing with Reis; apologizing
    Fears: Becoming a Miss Goody Two Shoes like her family! Letting Team Rocket grow soft!
    General Personality: Salih is a business woman first and foremost. Pokemon battles are what she does and she knows she does it very well. She cares deeply for her own Pokemon and thinks nothing of kidnapping and brainwashing those trainers who fail to win the Steel Heart badge. Humans are a means to an end and the loss of one life means nothing to the ultimate goal of Team Rocket. She is proud and thus, will never ask for help, not even from Reis with whom she seems to have a love-hate relationship with.
    Inner Personality: Salih is insecure about her position within Team Rocket. She understands only the strong survive and hence, is always striving to become stronger than she was yesterday. She is suspicious of Reis and appears to be paranoid, not trusting anyone with her deepest secrets. Really, who can blame her!
    Secret: Salih comes from a large family well known in the Pokemon world! She has a Pokemon doctor, a Pokemon breeder, a Pokemon Coordinator, and a Pokemon Ranger in her immediate family!
    More: If--I mean, when--she is beaten in battle, she will grant the winning trainer the Steel Heart Badge!

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Salih was born in Blackthorn City, in the Johto region, a girl who was raised by loving parents, among loving siblings. But as she grew, she came to resent the accomplishments her older siblings and her parents received and sought to make her own way in the world. This led to her running away when she was 14 and joining up with Team Rocket.

    Shortly after, she was assigned to and met Reis and given the codename "Salih". To this day, it's a secret what her real name is and she prefers to keep it that way. She worked her way up the ranks of Team Rocket and even managed to become a Gym Leader in the process as a front.

  2. Character Name: Buzzer Franklin
    Gender: Male
    Species/Race: Human
    Age: 16
    Birthplace/World: Azalea Town, Johto Region
    Occupation/School/Grade: Bug Catcher, Errant Schoolboy, Truant Extraordinaire
    More: His first name is actually Bartholomew, but you're asking for trouble if you say it out loud!

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance: Buzzer is a teenaged boy of average height and slim build. His clothing is usually quite disheveled and dirty, because he's always on the run for one reason or another--running away from home to hang out around town, running down the streets with his gang of schoolfriends after flinging rocks at house windows with his slingshot, or, most often, running after Pokemon in the woods, on his own, armed with just his tattered net. He has a medium complexion, and a tan on top of that, due to being outdoors so often.
    Strengths: Running, jumping, chasing, falling, climbing.
    Weaknesses: Organized team sports. Books. Numbers.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: Have fun. Escape boredom. Collect more bug Pokemon. Compete with other trainers to prove that his bugs have the power to beat anyone he meets. Maybe, someday, train his Pokemon well enough so that he can challenge that know-it-all, Bugsy (the other bug-type gym leader in his town) to find out who is the best bug trainer in Azalea once and for all.
    Talents: Sneaking up on people. Stealing food from under the noses of grownups (he supplements his diet with stolen candy from the town store almost every day, and the owner still doesn't know.). Bug Pokemon are magnetically drawn to him for some reason, and he to them. Has a natural instinct for communicating with, capturing and training insect-type Pokemon. Can speak to all species of bugs in Johto in their own language, thus knows all the hiding places, hunting grounds and sleeping patterns of every bug-type Pokemon in the region.
    Inabilities: Taking anything seriously. Having a friendship that isn't based on rivalry and competition. Paying attention to one thing long enough to really understand it (besides his bug Pokemon, which he can watch forever). Recognizing the difference between good and bad influences in the world.
    Fears: Losing the trust of his Pokemon and being alone. Not being good enough at bug catching and training, and thereby having to get a real job someday.
    General Personality: Kind of cocky when you first get to know him. Likes pulling pranks and telling jokes. A bit of a compulsive liar, sometimes.
    Inner Personality: He has no ill will towards others, but his careless nature often leads him to push people away. He doesn't believe anything said by an adult, including his own parents, unless there's something in it for him. He does have a gentle, kind side to his personality, but he only shows it to those he trusts most - his Pokemon, and a few very close friends.
    Secret: He likes to dig deep holes in the ground and bury himself up to his arms, so that he's at eye level with all the crawly creatures of the world.

    POKEMON

    Pokemon Partner(s): 3

    Pokemon Name: Venonat
    Pokemon Nickname: Sprinkle
    Pokemon Type: bug/poison
    Extra Info: Sprinkle is Buzzer's best friend, given to him by his mother on his tenth birthday. She likes to nest right on top of Buzzer's messy mop of brown hair. She often looks after Buzzer just like a mother or an older sister, chastising him when he isn't nice to other people or when he wanders into dangerous areas of the woods.

    Pokemon Name: Weedle
    Pokemon Nickname: Bebe
    Pokemon Type: bug/poison
    Extra Info: Bebe was actually Buzzer's first Pokemon. He raised her from birth in a small glass jar, until she outgrew it. When he finally let her out of the jar, instead of running away, Bebe crawled into his backpack. Ever since then, she accompanied Buzzer to school every day, and helped entertain him and his friends through lessons. Bebe has been acting strange lately--lethargic, slow and sleeping for over 12 hours a day.

    Pokemon Name: Ledyba
    Pokemon Nickname: Wyndon
    Pokemon Type: bug/flying
    Extra Info: Wyndon is a bit unruly. He's very strong, but doesn't like listening to Buzzer and often wanders off for days at a time. But he always comes back to find Buzzer, to beg for food, attention and to play with Buzzer's other Pokemon friends.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Born and raised in Azalea Town, Buzzer never left the town except for one short trip to Goldenrod City. This one visit to the bustling metropolis was so terrifying to him that it made him decide he wanted to find a cave in the woods someday and live there forever, once he was independent enough to move away from home.

    Present Life: He just reached the age where school is no longer mandatory in Johto, so now he only goes occasionally and skips the rest of the time. He lives with his mom, dad, and younger sister in a small house on the outskirts of town, where he had the benefit of a huge wooded wilderness in his backyard growing up. His parents are often away from home on business trips, so he got used to taking care of himself and his little sister. He doesn't get along with his sister very well, because all she likes to do is play video games, and she hates the outdoors and bugs. Everyone in the town knows who he is because he's always out and about, and they constantly have to shoo him away or spray him with a garden hose to get him off their lawn. Hey, it's not Buzzer's fault that his bugs like the grass, he just follows them!

    Special Historic Notes: His life is about to change in a dramatic way... he is sneaky, quick-witted, and talented enough to be of use to many outsiders, either for good or ill--and naive enough to let himself be manipulated by them.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History:
    Verity was born and raised in Saffron City. Growing up she was the target of bullying in school, she really wanted to make friends but her overly emotional personality made her a social outcask. Her only friend was a Vulpix given to her by pokemon researching father, who was rarely home because of his travels. She set out on her own pokemon adventure at the age of 16, though she wasn't interested in fighting for badges. She was more intringed by the power of pokemon, and by that age she had learned that anything worth having had to be taken, by force if necessary, which was why she started to admire what Team Rocket stood for. At the age of 20 she joined them and started working to move up the ranks.

    Present Life:
    Bossing grunts around and doing the bidding of the higher ups.

Since then he had been training with Cyndaquil constantly, reading up on pokemon tactics and strategies. Then, upon turning 18, he left his father and set out to test his mettle against the world, as well as to search to expand his team of pokemon, knowing that just 1 isn't enough.

  9. GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

    Character Name: Chloe Gotrah
    Gender: Female
    Species/Race: Human (but only barely)
    Age: 17
    Birthplace/World: Lavender Town
    Occupation/School/Grade: Pokemon Medium (Young)


    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance:
    View attachment 1369
    Strengths: (Hidden Power - see 'More' under Mental Powers)
    Weaknesses: Odd aura of creepiness, physically very weak, not very quick, low in health and constitution.
    More: She's nearsighted - corrects this with her glasses.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: "...Why do you care? I've got... things to do."
    Talents: She's got a real skill at scaring people - enjoys it, too. She's psionically active, and can communicate with deceased Pokemon with ease.
    Inabilities: ...She's creepy, and is very fond of scaring people. Has a problem with sarcasm - in that, it's hard to get her to stop.
    Fears: Being emotionally hurt - it's why she's so distant, mostly.
    General Personality: Dark and sarcastic, though still open enough to remain on friendly terms. Her monotone voice drones a little, and it gets on other's nerves. Even in danger, she'll throw a quip about -something-, normally putting her in more danger. She's quick to notice flaws in plans, and voices them in a way that embarrasses her target. She's very fond of frightening people.
    Inner Personality: For the most part, her distance and deplorable actions are a defense against people who would hurt her. She thinks that anyone that would stick around past all of it would be possible to be considered a friend - though it isn't likely she'd stop. She's grown fond of being an odd person.
    Secret: (Her purpose is to comfort deceased Pokemon, guiding them to their proper rest).
    More: She shares her body with the spirits of three dead pokemon, who had possessed her during the time Lavender Tower was changed to a radio tower. These Pokemon can take over her body from time to time, giving her a slight edge - but only when shrouded in shadows.

    Possessed by:
    "Green Render" - A scyther who grew too fond of it's training Pokemon, and died of grief when his trainer replaced him with a 'stronger' scyther. When possessing Chloe, he retains his skill with sharp objects, though he cries through her constantly when he is in command.

    "Worthless" - A rattata that was deemed 'too weak' by her Team Rocket owner, and after months of physical and mental abuse, died. When possessing Chloe, she retains her incredible will to live and endure damage, though the wounds Chloe takes bleed a lot more than they should...

    "Syblle" - A charmeleon owned by a poet. When trying to get her owner's attention while her owner was seeing his girlfriend, her owner grew impatient and made the charmeleon go outside. Ever loyal, the charmeleon went outside - and was found dead from the cold rain as it extinguished her tail... While possessing Chloe, she becomes quick and nimble, though she begins to show an aversion to water, and is even knocked unconscious by it!


    POKEMON

    Pokemon Partner(s):

    Pokemon Name: Zubat (Alternate Color - Red)
    Pokemon Nickname: Nosferati
    Pokemon Type: Posion/Flying
    Extra Info: People are terribly unfond of zubat, and it's for that reason that Chloe found one for herself. She dotes on it in private, like a strict (but loving) mother. It is of abnormally large size.


    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Growing up in the town known as a graveyard for Pokemon has had it's effect on Chloe. A born psychic, she had been tormented with the sorrows of abandoned or deceased pokemon all her life. Gaining an honest interest in rituals and witchcraft made her parents nervous, and her friendly interactions with ghost-type pokemon led many to believe she was possessed. When Lavender Tower was changed to a radio tower, she openly allowed the Pokemon to take over her body, voicing their displeasure at this action. The experience has given her a few spiritual tag-alongs, whom she shares her body with. However, the action was received with fear by the populace, and she chose to leave rather than live with the close-minded populace, making her way into the world.

    Present Life: She wanders the world, placing the restless spirits of dead pokemon to rest in these troubled times. She has since wandered into Saffron city for the comforts of civilization.

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Strengths: Caring, empathetic, and intelligent
    Weaknesses: Misunderstood easily, gets treated as a kid/a lot dumber than usual because she is quiet and doesn't like to talk.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: To beat the Kanto and Johto leagues.
    Talents: Double battles, forming bonds with her pokemon, putting herself in other people's shoes.
    Inabilities: Killing/injuring other people on purpose, being harsh on her Pokemon, being a leader.
    Fears: That she will have to hurt other people to achieve her goals, that other people will be mean to her, that people will misunderstand her.
    General Personality: She is quiet and only speaks when spoken to. She has some speech problems, so her speech can sometimes sound awkward and cause misunderstanding. She tends to be a lot more clear when she works together with somebody; however, it is not clear how much trust she gives to her teammates until they get to be around her for a little while. She handles conflicts with others by becoming rather cold instead of angry, and is extremely hard to agitate/make angry.

She strongly dislikes conflict and wishes to avoid it with everyone, but is completely aware that there are those that wish to stir up conflict just because they think it's fun.

    *Copy and paste the above format if you have more than one Pokemon.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Shakira was born without much event. Her childhood, however, was spent mostly in Vermillion with her mom while her dad would travel. Shakira would try to play with the other children, but she's had some speech problems for as long as she can remember, and for as long as she can remember, it made it difficult for her to make friends. However, she wasn't bitter at the people she had a hard time socializing with at all. Since she was young, her father had advised her to put herself in other people's shoes, which eventually made her more understanding of people as the years went by. Wanting to further expand her view of the people and things around her, her parents sent her off on the journey she is currently on after giving her Fleur (as an Oddish) at the age of 15.

    Present Life: After finding a small room in Saffron City, she is touring the city and trying to train Fleur by taking the occasional trip out of the city to train. Saffron City is a lot more busy than Shakira's used to, but she's slowly beginning to adjust to it all.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History:
    Grey grew up without a mother, never receiving an answer from anyone as to her whereabouts. The townspeople cared for him as a whole, since there were so few people on the island in general. Grey became interested in science playing around the machines in the lab. There were mishaps, such as the taking of a certain key to sneak into the mansion.... but overall little interesting. Grey was often lonely, without any other children about normally.

    Present Life: Grey has fought hard for the respect of the people of Cinnibar Island, and the trainers who seek him for the badge he possesses. While most people living there still see him as a boy, he has a track record for being a brutal opponent in battle. Currently, he has considered leaving in order to investigate matters outside Cinnibar, because he hears from the trainers to seek him about trouble brewing.

    Special Historic Notes:

    (Eheh... you can make me change him if you want, to a normal trainer but... but 0.0)

    Pokemon Type: Fighting
    Extra Info: It's a very stubborn creature and Ben finds himself fighting with it on a regular basis. It doesn't listen to him too well. His best friend.


    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: He was a scrappy guy in school, he got into fights all the time, no big deal though. But he always won. At the age of nineteen he set out to find a pokemon. He happened on a Mankey, by itself, he thew his pokeball but it got out, and it was pissed. It came at him, and he fought it. It was the roughest fight he'd been in. He managed to throw his pokeball again, but the Mankey got out again and was further angered. Ben was swiftly knocked out after that second attempt. When he woke up, the Mankey was long gone. Ben wasn't going to give up, he tracked the beast for a couple of months, he discovered where it lived, alone. He watched the Mankey for a while, and after a week of watching it, he went to toughen himself up, preparing for round 2. Ben layed in wait, and as soon as the Mankey was in his sight, ambushed him. The Mankey was caught by surprise but quickly recovered and they fought. They fought long into the night and almost into the morning. The Mankey slipped up once, and Ben struck it, sending it reeling and swiftly threw the pokeball. The Mankey, exhausted, remained in the ball. Picking up his pokeball, Ben laughed in victory and fell to ground.

    Present Life: He's gotten closer to his Mankey. They fight often. In other news: He was seeking balance within himself and realized he couldn't find it if he didn't know anything about other pokemon. So, he wants him and his Mankey to go out and find inner balance, he believes they will become much stronger and closer to one another if they accomplish this.

    [​IMG]

    Strengths: He intimidates well and has a cleverly balanced team. He cares for his poke’mon and is one of the greatest tests of friendship out there.

    More: He always wears his shades even when sleeping.

    Talents: A great bonding force between his poke’mon and himself makes them take actions simply by him nodding on occasion.

    Pokemon Nickname: Umber
    Pokemon Type:
    Dark
    Extra Info: Male

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: At the age of 9 Alex received his first poke’mon, an Eevee, an instantly fell in love with it. He played with it every day and became good friends up to the age of 13 when one day it ran away. Alex spent a whole week looking for it and was about to give up when it came back with a whole litter of new Eevee. Later on his first poke’mon evolved into Umbreon as the friendship was rekindled.

    It was now that Team Rocket took an interest into this trainer as he was the talk of Viridian City with Giovanni still in charge. He was ordered to help out in the Silph Co. operation and had no choice as his unevolved friends could not defend themselves. During the exchange a brave trainer made his way into the building and defeated the Team Rocket thugs. It was truly inspirational but he had to run before seeing the end of the confrontation. During the escape several Coffings spewed out their gas and Alex sucked in too much. Behind the building he later threw up but still escaped.

    Once the plan was a failure the Eevees were let off the hook thanks to that very same trainer beating Giovanni. He was taken into custody and a new Gym Leader needed to be found.

    As the years went by more of his Eevee’s turned into different evolutions until a late blooming one was left. He called himself a cool trainer and talked about the virtues of friendship with poke’mon. It was these talks and his undying bonds that led him to be recommended as the city’s next leader. He took the job and has been a well respected one ever since.

    Present Life: Now Alex makes his life teaching the virtues he learned from himself and the Silph Co. incident. To this day he still doesn’t know that trainers name but is still envious of him.

    Special Historic Notes: If on the off chance you don’t know about the Silph Co. incident Team Rocket tried to steal tech or something from the scientists there but was thwarted by your character traveling the Kanto region. The Silph Co. building is located in Saffron City.
