  1. Now that I know there's a sign up thread. Whoops.

    YOUR POKEMON ADVENTURE STARTS HERE! Embark on the adventure of a lifetime in the Hoenn region! Challenge Gym Leaders and take on the Pokemon League, become a world-famous Coordinator, or do anything in this Intermediate and up roleplay! [/field]

    • Don't be a jerk.
    • This roleplay is for Intermediate and higher Roleplayers.
    • You cannot have a Legendary unless it's an event started by one of the people running the roleplay. We'll be fair about it, don't worry.
    • I mean it, please don't be a jerk. Don't have perfect characters, Pokemon unsuited to your character's level of experience that they can control perfectly, and so on.
    • Language, guys. I'll accept swearing, but please keep in mind that this will not be an 18+ roleplay, and the source material. That's all I'm asking.
    • As I mentioned above, please give a little context behind your Pokemon, if they wouldn't normally make sense. Little Youngster Joey isn't going to have a level 70 Lucario if he's never ventured outside of Littleroot, unless there's a plausible backstory behind this. Even then, LYJ better not be able to control these powerful Pokemon right off the bat, because he won't have any Gym badges.
    • Yes, we're playing by the game and level of control's rules. Your Pokemon can always get stronger, but your capability in controlling them depends on the badges your character has.
    • Again, please make sense. I don't think I can stress this enough. Aforementioned LYJ isn't going to be the League Champion at his age. People on Iwaku are smart, but if this actually happens, you can't say I didn't warn you.
    • We play by the honor system here, folks. If a bunch of good things happen to your character, you'd better make sure some bad happens too. If you don't, I'll exercise my GM'ly powers and make something happen. Harsh, yes, but it's only fair, and you've been warned.
    • Sorry about all the rules. I just feel if I don't make myself clear, then when something wrong happens, it's my fault.
    • Death may happen in this roleplay, but don't go overboard with the gore description, please.[/field]

    HONOR SYSTEM Basically, guys, just balance out your good and bad luck in roleplay, please. Or try to. This is a warning, that if I feel you're godmodding, that I'll personally make something bad happen to your character. Or a bad situation. Please don't make me do this 'cos I hate to do it. [/field]

  2. Hooray.... now we wait.
  3. IIII think I'll join~ o.o I'm a little confused by the lack of plot, though-- Is it just everyone having their own Pokemon adventure, based on the games? If that's the case, I'd like if someone would have their character be a friend/rival to mine. c:

    I already have a character I was going to use for another Pokemon RP that got cancelled, so I'll fill out the form and post in a bit.

    Also, about the 'Nicknames' part, is that for us, or our character..?
  4. Plot: For now, not really, if I'm being totally honest. A loose following of OR/AS will probably be followed, with the appearance of Team Aqua and Team Magma, but we'll come up with a more original plot as soon as possible, I promise. Feel free to pitch in about anything you'd think would be interesting! -Hipster Rin

    Edit: The nicknames is what you want to be called.
    Example: My username is Jerem_co and my nickname is Jerem
    • Thank Thank x 2
  5. Razor (open)

    Preferred Nicknames:Rai, Raijin, or Slayer
    Character Name:He Who Walks Not The Path of Madness For It Is Razor-Thin and Brings Naught But Despair, but will go by Razor
    Experience Level: Beginner
    Occupation:Yveltal Priest
    This but with red and black hair, a hooded black cape, and Red eyes.
    Battle Team:
    Noibat(Alucard)(Lv:5):(Screech, Super sonic, Leech Life, Tackle)(Ability:Infiltrator)
    Treecko(William)(Lv:6)(Pound, Leer, Absorb) (Ability: Unburden)
    Zorua(Umbra)(Lv:5)(Scratch, Leer, Pursuit) (Ability:Illusion)
    Flecthling(Ace)(Lv:5)(Tackle, Growl) (Ability: Gale Wings)
    Honedge(Arondight)(Lv:6)(Tackle, Swords Dance, Fury Cutter)(Ability: No Guard)
    Bagon(Ragnar)(Lv:5)(Rage, Ember) (Ability: Sheer Force)


    Martial arts: A follower of Yveltal must be ready to fight in the name of the one they serve, if ever called to protect the balance of the world. He is very skilled in fighting both people and pokemon if need be.
    Patience: Being a priest, he has reached a level of inner peace that allows him to be very patient with those around him. However, if he ever does get angry, it would be wise to run the other way.
    Perceptiveness:He is very good at figuring out people through careful observation.
    Confessional: Razor gives off a calming presence to people, and is an excellent listener when it comes to other peoples problems. People just find him naturally trustworthy most of the time.
    Touchy subject:He gets very defensive when somebody makes negative connotations about his beliefs
    Don't wake the Dragon: When he does get angry, it is extremely hard to get him to calm down, and even when he does, he is likely to hold a grudge against the offender.

    Jack Walker (open)

    Preferred Nicknames:Rai, Raijin, or Slayer
    Character Name:Jack Walker
    Gender: Male
    Experience Level: Expert

    Swampert(Lv:68)(Waterfall, Earthquake, Ice Punch, and Bulk Up) (Ability:Torrent, Swift swim when Mega) (Item: Swamperite or Leftovers)

    Experience battler:He's been at this for a while,and is damn good at it. He is easily able to tell what a newbie trainer will do, but for the more experienced, he makes pretty good predictions.
    Bonds: Him and his pokemon share a close bond, and because of that, his pokemon are more eager to fight him. They will fight, even if it means their death.
    Mega evolution: He has it in his arsenal and isn't afraid to use it if need be
    Arrogance: If your not a gym leader or Elite four member, you are no threat in his eyes.
    Type obsession: Dragons are the best at everything, so he mainly uses them first. Could be used against him via Ice/Dragon sweep

  6. Username: Hipster Rin
    Preferred Nicknames: Honestly I don't care, various people call me various things. Just add to the list.
    Character Name: Lily
    Age: 22
    Gender: Female
    Experience Level: Advanced
    Occupation: Gym Leader of Mauville (Dynamo Badge)
    Looks: Standing at 5'7", Lily is a moderately tall young woman with an average build and figure and fair skin. Her hair is a pale blonde that reaches down to her waist and is held back by a black headband with a lightning bolt pattern going across it. Her clothes can vary, but they're usually more durable clothes, and she wears a pair of black insulated gloves all the time because of her choice of Pokemon.
    ~ Lopunny (Monique)
    - Flaaffy (lv. 30)
    - Manetric (lv. 29)
    - Electabuzz (lv. 35
    - Lanturn (lv. 28)
    - Pikachu (lv. 27)
    - Voltorb (lv. 29)
    Physically Fit: With Monique as her companion, Lily has to play and train with her to keep her healthy. This gives Lily a stronger body than average, but she has to keep training with it.
    Gym Leader: Lily is a Gym Leader, so she's no slouch in battle. While she isn't one of the oldest and most experienced Gym leaders, she's not exactly new to this, either.

    Short Tempered: Lily can easily lose her cool in battles, and throw strategy out the window if the going gets tough.
    All Electric: Apart from Monique, who is retired from official battles, Lily's team is entirely composed of Electric types, giving her a distinct disadvantage against Ground Type, excluding Voltorb (Levitate Ability).

    Username: Still Hipster Rin
    Preferred Nicknames: ^
    Character Name: Tristan
    Age: 26
    Gender: Male
    Experience Level: Expert
    Occupation: Elite Four (#3)
    Looks: Tall and skinny, Tristan stands around 5'11", with darker tan skin and messy dark hair that stays spiked up. While his clothing can vary, he normally sticks with dark colors, and usually wears a pair of sunglasses unless it's dark.
    ~ Crobat (Ozzy)
    - Mightyena (lv. 70)
    - Absol (lv. 68)
    - Houndoom (lv. 71)
    - Honchkrow (lv. 66)
    - Sableye (lv. 70)
    - Weavile (lv. 65)

    Experienced: Tristan isn't the third member of the Elite Four for no reason. His Pokemon are high-leveled, and they obey him.
    Intelligent: Tristan is skilled when it comes to strategy and problem solving.
    Shady: Most of his Pokemon are Dark types, which have various weaknesses, not considering the dual typing immunities and weaknesses.
    Introvert: While a reasonably nice guy, Tristan rarely talks, if not a word or two at a time unless he needs to explain something. His social skill dips toward the negative. This can cause simple failures in communication.

    Username: *noodle arms*
    Preferred Nicknames: *makes goat noises*
    Character Name: Luka
    Age: Not mentioned, appears late twenties, early thirties
    Gender: Female
    Experience Level: Advanced
    Occupation: Aqua Leader
    ~ Octillery (Kai)
    - Mightyena (lv. 45)
    - Sharpedo (lv. 48)
    - Crobat (lv. 46)
    - Seviper (lv. 45)

    • Aqua Leader: As the leader of Team Aqua, Luka is in charge of the entirety of the organization.
    • Intelligent: Criminal or not, the Leader of Aqua is no fool. She's fairly adept at battling and solving problems.

    • Coward: While she's a strong trainer, Luka doesn't like stressful or tense situations, and tends to disappear if something unpleasant happens.
    • Ego: She tends to overlook little issues, and underestimate her foes, even going so far as to go easy on them from time to time, or play around with them and not realize their strength until it's a little too late.
    Username: How do?
    Preferred Nicknames: Wat
    Character Name: Anne
    Age: 12
    Gender: Female
    Experience Level: Rookie/Beginner
    Occupation: Coordinator/Trainer
    Looks: Short for her age, Anne is only 5'1", with a tiny build and fair skin. She has shoulder-length pale blonde hair, and changes her clothes often, especially for contests and such.
    ~ Plusle (Addie)
    - Zigzagoon (Ziggy; lv. 6)
    ~ Pikachu (Stella; lv. 22) Used for contests only!! Not enough badges to fight with!

    • Natural Leader: With a bold nature, Anne is good at taking control of a situation and restoring order.
    • Determined: Anne usually doesn't know when to back away from a situation. This can be a double-edged sword.

    • Determined: Anne usually will not back away from a situation, no matter how dangerous or stupid.
    • Dense: Coming up with a creative combination for a Contest is one thing, problem-solving skills is a whole other ball game for this girl.

    Username: *scree*
    Preferred Nicknames: *murp*
    Character Name: Alex
    Age: 12
    Gender: Male
    Experience Level: Rookie/Beginner
    Occupation: Trainer
    Looks: About as short as his twin sister, Alex stands at a mere 5'3", with a skinny build and identical pale blonde hair, but cut shorter. His clothing changes seem a little less erratic, still changing, but with a consistent style: comfortable, durable clothing, mostly jeans, shirts, and jackets.
    ~ Minun (Minnie)
    - Poochyena (lv. 6)
    - Mime Jr. (lv. 20) Will be used for battle later, given as a gift.
    • Intelligent: The brain of the dynamic duo, Alex can provide strategy in a battle and solve problems in the outside world.
    • Even-tempered: Not much shakes Alex. He doesn't get scared or angry very easily. Just don't hurt his sisters.

    • Small: As tough as he can try to act, Alex is rather short, even for his age. This and his thin build give him a disadvantage in physical fights.
    • Meek: Social situations are better left to Anne, because while he can talk, he doesn't like large groups of new people, as they make him nervous.

    + Agile - Avery is very light on his feet, and has well honed reflexes. He is quite capable of dodging attacks, or, well: fleeing. Not much gets in his way, as he always manages to get around obstacles.

    + Survivor - Avery is a natural when it comes to making it on his own. When far from any cities and forced to camp out, he has no trouble finding food or a safe place to sleep.


    - Scaredy-Cat - Avery is absolutely terrified of bodies of water and water Pokemon.

    - Lost - Despite his survival skills, Avery has a terrible sense of direction. He cannot follow a map to save his life, and often goes the wrong way even when given specific directions.

  16. Username: Crono
    Preferred Nicknames: I think that five letters is short enough don't you?
    Character Name: Crim
    Age: 27
    Gender: Male
    Experience Level: Advanced
    Occupation: Traveler (former Gym leader of Lavaridge)
    Looks: 6'3", pale skin, and a bit on the skinny side. Has long greasy black hair and emerald eyes. Crim wares a brown trench coat with tattered ends, a solid white shirt underneath, and dark blue jeans. He has a white cast on his left leg and a crutch for it on his left arm.
    ~ Ninetales (Taizai)
    - Breloom(lv. 36)
    - Sandslash(lv. 35)
    - Xatu(lv. 37)
    - Gallade(lv. 40)
    - Golduck(lv. 34)
    - Mawile(lv. 38)
    (No fire types will be explained in RP. For a hint look what Taizai means in Japanese)
    Veteran: Since he was once a Gym Leader he has plenty of battle experience and can sometimes predict what a opponent will do next.
    Real great guy: Crim has always been a friendly and helpful person. He is always willing to put his friends and pokemon in front of his self.
    Broken Leg: Rumors say it's linked to his leaving the Gym. He is slow and cumbersome and due to it and can't really get anywhere without his crutch.
    Peaceful Pokemon: The majority of is team have rarely seen the battlefield, due to this they can be cowardly, reckless, or unresponsive.
  17. Accepted, Crono.

    And five letters is way too much. Just kidding. Welcome to the family, Crono.
  18. Just as a side note, I'm really liking all of these characters! I haven't seen a "cookie cutter" character from any of you yet! It's so refreshing. ^^

  19. Run my boy Lucas! Run!

    Just a sidenote tho, Do the pokemon talk like in most nuzlockes or is it following the anime? Or do they just make weird noises like the games?
