Overview Three years after the second rising of Team Plasma, all seemed quiet in Unova. Several of the Gym positions had changed hands, but not much changed over the few years of calm. However, rumors began to spread; strange robed individuals have been seen across the Region, some identifying them as members of the Seven Sages, the ruling class of Team Plasma. A sizable cruise ship has docked in Nuvema Town Harbor, and many youthful Trainers have arrived in Unova in hopes of going on a journey. Many new Unovan natives have traveled to Nuvema Town as well, in hopes of receiving their very first Pokémon. Whether you're a veteran, or a new Trainer, Nuvema Town has a small celebratory buffet to start off your journey! Character Creation For the RP, there are no real restrictions to what you can or cannot play character-wise, however I ask that you keep it reasonable, and that Mary-sue traits be kept to a minimum. If you're unsure, take Vaultie's Test. Additionally, Pokémon can learn more than 4 moves, and any move their species can learn within reason. Below is the recommended character skeleton. Please thoroughly fill out each relevant section. You may add additional information to your skeleton as you deem necessary. If you are afraid of other players using your backstory to meta-game, you are more than welcome to send me a private message with the information. Spoiler: Character Skeleton Name: Age: Gender: Eye Color: Hair Color: Height: Hometown: Region: Special Items: (Z-Ring, Z-Crystals, etc. Powerful items need Mod Approval. Optional.) Trainer Type: (Optional) Badges: (Can be number or names. Remove field if not applicable.) Appearance (Description and/or Self-Drawn Picture/Commission.) Personality (What's your character like?) History (Optional. What's your character like?) Pokémon Team Spoiler: Pokémon Species: Nickname: Gender: Ability: Egg Moves: Tutor Moves: Rules and Guidelines Follow the rules of Pokécharms. Do not god-mode or powerplay. Do not overpower yourself or others. We like to have fun here. Do not metagame. Only bunny (autowalk) characters if you have permission, or if the other person has not posted in some time (60 hours from the time of their "turn"). Never autohit. Do not mix IC and OOC. A character is a character. You are you. Avoid breaking lore. Thrall cannot save you. Town and Route sizes are closer to real life and the anime (not the game). Post often. Real life takes priority, but do try to let everyone know in advanced if there's a hold-up of over three days. If you wish to drop the RP, it would be much appreciated if you notify everyone OOC. I will not be allowing people to join the RP if I have witnessed their lack of commitment. There is no post order. That said, be mindful and considerate. Posts should be two paragraphs or more; and with enough content for someone to respond to. Spelling, grammar and punctuation do not need to be perfect, however if no one can comprehend what you're writing, there's a very big problem. Finally, please start your character in an area other characters can interact with you.
