It started off in the festival. Our region has one every year in Hau'Oli City.. nothing's ever gone wrong- and when it has, we- the Aether Foundation- have been able to deal with it- but they've become more advanced. Who could have given them such technology. Disabling Pokemon's powers? And not to mention, they attacked the human people too. Who could have given Team Skull such power and made them so... berserk? - Hello! I've been trying to plan a Pokemon roleplay for a while, and have never had a good idea- until now. What I've just started with is a brief overview of what is to happen later in the roleplay. This will cause our characters to attempt to find Team Skull and find out what's behind their recent attack being so planned and powerful. I should go over some notes, as this is an alternate timeline to the main Generation 7 games. - This roleplay is mainly for the purpose to give Alola a new story. I don't like how much Pokemon sugar-coated Alola, so I want to give it a new story. - The main protagonist from both Generation 7 games never existed. Nor did Hau. - However, Lillie and Gladion are in this roleplay- Lillie hasn't run away or found Cosmog, she has a great bond with Lusamine. This is because less is known about the legendary Pokemon. Gladion is with the same relation to Team Skull as he was in Sun/Moon. - To expand on the very small amount of urban areas Alola has, there will be new areas to Alola. - RULES: o Follow all of Pokecharms' Rules. They exist for a reason. o Legendary Pokemon are forbidden to begin with. If we gain one later- and you have admin permission along with mine, then it is fine. Same goes with Mega Stones. o This roleplay is not a happy journey. Expect some darker themes. o I'm not too bothered about swearing- just don't let it go out of hand. o Please stay away from going further than a kiss between characters. o Start with one or two Pokemon only. You may catch more in the roleplay, later. o Up to four moves on up to six real Pokemon. Having more than four moves confuses everything for me. o Please use correct grammar and spelling in at least five sentences per post. o No nicknames with Pokemon- nobody can remember each others' Pokemon usually, and it just.. becomes hard, having to read bios constantly. - BIOS: Spoiler: Bio Frame Name: Appearance: Personality: Dreams: Pokemon: Appearance: Personality: Moves: Obtained: Spoiler: Ryker Webster Full Name: Ryker Webster. Age: 16 Appearance: Ryker has neatly combed-right blonde hair- a comb-over gives him a minimal fringe. and tanned skin (from Alola's heat). His eyes are a burning bright blue, always looking active- even when tired. For height, he's not tall but not small either, to be exact: 5'4". His body is also in a good shape. Clothing: Usually his clothing is a light grey hoodie over any form of t-shirt and then jeans. His shoes are usually white trainers. It's weird how he's able to survive the heat in this- but is he? Personality: Ryker is a caring person, who usually doesn't seem to raise his voice. He loves to discuss passions and opinions, and participate things. The teen loves rising to a challenge, whether it's a project to make something or to do a physical challenge. Dreams: His main ambition is to have a full team of Pokemon: but not by being a trainer, just by simply bonding with wild Pokemon. Becoming an adult, he'd like to work at a Pokemon Center. Pokemon: Flabebe Gender: Female Ability: Flower Veil Moves: Tackle, Vine Whip, Fairy Wind Appearance: A white-flower Flabebe. Obtained: Whilst walking through Iki Town, Ryker spotted a flower left on the ground. He picked it up, as it looked really nice to have been left there, and then there was a Flabebe clinging as strongly as it could to the flower. A recent Flabebe horde had flown through the sky that day, so it was safe to assume it was lost. He tried to get it back to its group, spending all day trying, but it refused to go, and kept holding onto the teen. It wanted to be with him, so he bought a Poke-Ball and caught it. His parents are fine with him doing such. Other: Her flower is pinned around Ryker's ear. (I wanted to use a male Flabebe but they're all Female.) Ryker comes from a rich family too, and usually acts ashamed of it if he ever has to talk about it. He doesn't want people to know since he wants to be treated like an equal human. That means he is friendlier and happy around people he trusts. Also, if anyone can suggest a better name, please do. I have no idea. The Roleplay is set on August 1st, 8am. The festival begins at 6pm. No, not the time it begins- I wouldn't have you all wait that long! I'm referring to the time in-roleplay.
