ARE YOU A BOY OR A GIRL!?!?!11/
And thus begins your wonderful Pokemon adventure.
1. Story-Hoenn playing time. You can pick any town to start. If you're lost use this place
; don't worry, it's been years since I've played Emerald as well so I'm dependent on it as well.
You may pick most Pokemon to start, but do note that I reserve the right to deny your application if you try to make yourself too broken.
You will be greeted by Professor Birch before you may travel anywhere. He will give you your Pokegear, so wait patiently until you get it.
From there, your goals may vary. Do you wish to conquer the gyms? Catch every Pokemon? Maybe just be a tourist?
You may or may not find random antagonists such as Team Magma and Aqua. However, Team Plasma no longer exists; they have been supplanted by the PETA (Pokemon Ethical Treatment Association). You can comply with their demands or you can set them on fire, your choice.
I reserve the right to make up random antagonist organizations that you are free to join. I also reserve the right to change up stuff a lot, so you can expect a government and actual cars and actual jobs and other stuff like that.
4th and 5th generation Pokemon are allowed. Wild Pokemon should normally be 3rd gen, however.
1b. Each city has a sort of "personality", along with certain "economies"; that is, most usually focus on a certain type of business, rarely venturing out of those bounds. Usually it is because those occupations are most suited to the city. They are as follows:
-Now somewhat more advanced and quite a bit larger than it was 15 years ago. However, it is still a rather quite town; it is a suburban town. The original cottages are still around as historical artifacts, remade into museums of older times. It is still small enough so that it only takes 30 minutes to walk from end to end.
-Also a suburban town. A popular retirement spot due to its quiet yet vibrant nature. Gardening is a favorite pastime here, and many people are often willing to offer berries to travelers.
-Probably the smallest City in Hoenn. Its proximity to Oldale and Littleroot has caused Petalburg to meld a little to their personalities. There are large "garden museums" that are open to tourists that showcase garden mazes, flower statues, and other fine specimens--essentially Oldale's common hobby taken to extremes. Berries may be purchased in a gift shop. Most shops around here are basic in nature, such as haircuts and repair shops.
-One of Hoenn's largest forests. It is a pristine area, and tours are offered in a tourist office in Petalburg. Many journeyman tutors take their students here to help them train and teach them new lessons about Pokemon.
-A rather down in the dirt town. Residents here are often gruff but cheerful. Shops are usually low-key, and often show signs of their age (sometimes literally--many of the signs have faded paint). There are a few pubs around--most patrons know each other, are happy to accept more people, and waste most of their time laying bets on various competitions in the TV and getting mildly drunk. Other common industries are repairing and storage.
Rustboro also holds Devon Corporation Headquarters, one of Hoenn's largest companies. It is a creativity-promoting company, and the building most of them work in is grand with a cathedral design.
-Long ago, a plan to dig a Tunnel through the Rusturf Caves was conceived. However, the plan was mostly scrapped due to environmental issues, bar one crazy man who figured that if he did it little by little we could have the cave and keep the Pokemon undisturbed. Surprisingly, his persistence paid off (with a little help from a certain trainer), and Rusturf Tunnel is now a commonly used passageway from Rustboro to Verdanturf Town. As for the man (named Riley, by the way), he likes to sit outside the former Tunneler's Rest Area (now a museum) and tell people about the history of the tunnel. He is also happily married to the reason he was trying to dig the tunnel in the first place--Wallene.
-A quiet, calming town. It has nice clean air, and is often recommended for those with breathing problems. It is not a very big town, but due to being connected to Rustboro through the Rusturf Tunnel and Mauville through Route 117, many pass through it, and often stop for a moment to relax. The industry is focused mainly on therapy, tourism, and a combination of the 2. Verdanturf's natural benefits fit that well. Verdanturf is also home to a unique battle tent where the trainer must trust their Pokemon to battle on their own.
-An island town with a relaxed air. Most of it is made of beach, and as such Dewford is a popular vacation spot. A lot of its industry relies on sailing, but it has a booming tourist industry as well. Dewford sets a lot of trends, so it is also a favorite spot for fashion designers. The only way to get there is by surfing or by boat.
-Probably Hoenn's most notable port city. Sailors spend a lot of time here, so a lot of the industry is catered to them--therefore, be careful you don't end up in the Sailor Zones, as the pub, brothel, black market, and hotel area is called. Despite its shady side, it has plenty of overworld areas; there is a nautical museum, a ship-building center, and ferries, along with lots of trade. Slateport City is also home to 2 very unique establishments--first of all, an outdoor, vibrant market where traders and merchants and many normal shoppers frequent, and second, a battle tent, where you can enter a Battle Swap Challenge.
-Now the home of Rydel's Bikes Incorporated, which started out as a simple bike ship but has grown tremendously and now has outlets in many towns and cities. Mauville is one of the more modern, bustling cities; it can be considered a Hoenn version of Las Vegas. This impression is strengthened by the Mauville Game Corner, the largest such facility in Hoenn. Most of the industry focuses on entertainment.
-A remote, small city. Set in the shadow of Mt. Chimney, it is famous for its hot springs and the local Lavaridge cookies. It is difficult to get to, as it is not very close to other cities and the main route to it is by going up Mount Chimney by lift and then walking down the mountain to it. As a result, it has not grown very much. It is a serene place, though.
-A remote town, but one that many trainers like to put on their schedules. The fossil maniac, an expert on fossils, resides nearby, but more importantly, the move relearner has set up a business there. Professor Cosmo also performs astronomical research in there, and one can challenge a unique Battle Tent that is a miniature version of one of the Battle Frontier's facilities. It is an agricultural area, as the volcanic ash provides excellent fertilizer.
2. Rules-Need to spell, no godmodding, no one-liners, yada yada, you know the rules though goodness knows you also break a ton of 'em. I reserve the right to look at other examples of your roleplaying and deny your application based on this information.
If your post doesn't change anything in the story, don't post it.
[b]Name of character:[/b]
Name of character:
A poor beggar and thief. He hasn't had a home for a while after he was ran away from his parents. He has scraped through life, but hopes to be able to get stronger, although he doesn't seem sure of why.
Sullen, commonly angry for no perceivable reason. Often curious about random stuff. Likes fire.
You're welcome to guess, though. He has a Murkrow for a reason.
He's rather scruffy looking. He wears a light vest over a stained t-shirt, and his hair hasn't been washed for months. Normally it would be a sort of bowl cut brown, but in his current state it's like he has a dirty porcupine on his head. His jeans are ripped at the knees, and he wears a hat similar to that of Oliver Twist's.
: Vale Mikari
: Ecruteak City / Slateport City
: Gabite (Marrazo)
: (I seriously don't want to type this out... ._.' CP time!)
Vale has lived in Snowpoint City in the Sinnoh region up til he was around 7 years old. Due to his dad's job, the Mikari family picked up and moved to the Johto region, and he was forced to leave behind his friends, and his love for skiing. Up to this point, Vale ran a delivery route between Ecruteak City and Blackthorn for a hobby, and carried Pokemon to protect him from thieves and the like. He's setting out with his Pokemon out to the Hoenn region to visit his friend who's living in Mossdeep City.
: Don't ask me for it, it'll be RP'd out. Mostly because he has an established trio relationship between two of my other character, and it's hard to figure out his personality on paper. ^^
Name of character:
(Lu) Luxera [alias]
Let's just say he has... an Empoleon, if that's okay with you?
Slateport / Petalburg
I'll post more on that with the RP posts. >;3
Fairly serious, and energetic, Lu has the tendency to rush into things straight on. He is quite uh... intelligent, and often can beat up anyone at a game of chess. It doesn't mean he has a modest nature, but Lu has learned quickly that bragging about his greatness is a surefire way to get beat up. As he can tell you. And the rest of his personality will be RP'd out.
This will also be described in posts too. It's just that he actually has a wardrobe and changes clothes often enough that there's not a concrete outfit for him. But I can say that Lu has brown long hair tied back in a ponytail, and green eyes. He also has a somewhat noticeable scar crossing the bridge of his nose from an encounter with a vicious Pokemon.
Name of character:
10 (just starting)
The only ghost trainer in fortree city
Whatever i feel like whenever i RP as him
Name of character:
has been training for a few years now.
Kind and thoughtful
Kuro is from Pallet Town but moved to Hoenn to become a coordinator/Pokemon researcher. She is a bad trainer at times because of her impatience and short-temper. Kuro gets in trouble a lot because of her nonchalant attitude and unintentional rudeness. She ran away from home because she wanted to be on her own, however her homes are secret bases that she sets up and takes down randomly. Because of her new living situation, she is very thrifty when getting and saving items however she will not steal. She uses the coordinator trainer occupation to gain money.
Name of character:
A big fan of bug pokemon , dream to beat the elite four with only bug pokemon
Name of character:
As a child, Evan loved Pokemon. He had almost every card available, played all the games, watched all the movies, and aspired to one day own his own pokemon. That day has finally come in the form of a 15th birthday gift from his mother.
A carefree attitude, Evan's more likely to just explore and find new Pokemon than actually battle. He loves meeting new people, and prefers to travel in a group.
Rather thin, wears a red zip up hoody (or sweater, for some people) and a shirt that says "Attack!" he wears black jeans and a fedora. He also has eyeglasses because he's nearsighted.
Up for grabs
