  1. Story: (You can skip to the summary if you don't want to read two paragraphs)

    When a world is in distress, there is always a bright light ahead of us all. In the city of Larimar, life is normal for some without a partner Pokemon with them. The excitement of battles, the bonds of friendship, and the meaning of love all fade from the city as the future moves on without a bond with Pokemon. Some people are looking for a change in life to make everyone look for these elements they are missing in the world. This is what the One For Us group is trying to accomplish.

    The One For Us group is a group of people looking to spark a flame in people in Larimar City for Pokemon once again. Where others don't see the point in battles, friends or love, this group does. Their goal is to show the city and the world what it means to be a Pokemon Trainer in the Pokemon World. The group does things from public Pokemon contests, battles, showcases, and much more.

    Summary:

    In "One For Me And You," Larimar City holds a group of people known as One For Us. Their goal is to connect people to people and Pokemon. Ever since the city has focused more on things like the economy, they have fallen further away from a bond with Pokemon, making life stressful and dull. As this Roleplay goes on, the people of Larimar will change how they see Pokemon based on the group's actions. The group is very small, like a school club, so their efforts are usually seen as small and for fun. You can either join the group or choose a separate role for the story to either help or harm the group to change the story for better or for worse.

    Conflict:

    There is not much of a conflict, but it's more of you against the world kinda thing. The group will come together to try to come up with ideas to bring people closer to Pokemon and others, but not every time will be perfect. Something may go wrong for some of their plans depending on what happens during an event they do.

    Rules: (If a rule is broken, no worries! I'll help you fix it together and continue on with our stuff.)

    1. Have fun, and keep an open mind for other ideas.
    2. Do not argue, if there is an argument of any kind, make sure to keep all minds open and communicate.
    3. Follow Pokecharms rules to a T.
    4. Fights in RP are allowed.
    5. Romance is allowed.
    6. Properly communicate with everyone during RP in this chat.

    Role: Owner of "One For Us"
    Backstory: Toshi left his home a few months before the story. His life wasn't horrible, but he couldn't take life as it was and wanted to move to a city for excitement. He was met with a city that didn't care for Pokemon, and he wanted to make a change in that. He started to perform acts around the city with his Buizel and even sometimes looked to battle the rare Pokemon Trainers that came by.

  2. XanthousXatu

    XanthousXatu Previously SwiftSwoobat

    Name: Loki Primus
    Gender: Male
    Age: 16
    Personality: Loki has low self esteem, tending to stick to routine rather than difference. He has a very negative attitude normally, though with Pokémon, his personality shifts completely. Merely just seeing one of those creatures makes him feel confident and supported, diving headfirst into action if he has one on his side.
    Appearance: Loki is of average height, with an overall general physique. He has jet black hair and green eyes as well. He wears a snowflake embroidered chullo and a nice winter scarf, both with a black, grey, and white colors. He wears a winter coat, with grey and white patterns on it. Underneath that he wears a plain grey short-sleeved shirt. Loki wears denim jeans and grey sneakers.
    Role: Member of “One for Us”
    Backstory: Loki grew up near the outskirts of Larimar City, where he grew up in a middle class family who never even thought of getting a Pokémon to ruin their lives. However, Loki was always fascinated about Pokémon, his childhood was him obsessing over them. So one day, Loki ‘captured’ a Natu and brought it home. His parents were outraged, and they keep on scolding him for capturing the Pokémon from the wild still to this day.
    Other: N/A

    Pokemon:

  3. Name: Darcie Simenera
    Gender: Female
    Age: 16
    Personality: When asked to describe Darcie... you get a little stuck. Sometimes (most of the time) she can be really irritated and impatient. She gets really mad if a friend, or anyone really, makes a grave mistake, and teases the person if they make a little mistake. But, she's actually... not a demon from the underworld. She still cares deeply for her friends, even though she doesn't show it as often. And with Pokémon, she's very protective of them, especially little and cute ones.
    Appearance: Darcie is a short girl with a slim build, which a lot of boys tease her about, until she beats them up. She has pink lace hair which is held up in two buns with beige bows and hazel eyes.
    She wears a white turtle neck sweater, outside the collar poking out a black choker with an oval blue gem. As bottoms, she wears blue jeans and she has light grey sneakers.
    Role: Member of "One For Us"
    Backstory: Darcie lives with her parents around the center of Larimar City, with her parents. As a child, she has always loved Pokémon and forced her parents to show her pictures of them or else she would have a made a scene in public. And it actually worked. Around the age of six, her family visited Darcie's grandparents, who were breeders. Her parents were so annoyed that they had to listen to Pokémon cries all day long. When they had to go home, Darcie's grandma gifted her an egg. Her parents didn't want a Pokémon running around their house, but her grandma threatened them to take away their house... Guess Darcie resembles her grandma. A little while later, the egg hatched into a Swirlix, and Darcie was super extatic about getting her first Pokémon. Her parents weren't very stoked at first, but after Darcie got into baking because she wanted to make something sweet like her Pokémon, they started to keep their complaints to themselves and enjoy her pies and cupcakes.
    Other: She is an excellent baker and chef.

    Pokemon: Slurpuff
    Name: Slurpuff
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Very sweet (Get it?), patient and outgoing
    Appearance: Wears a tiny beret on the red sphere on her head.
    Other: Often calms down Darcie by gently slapping her.


    Also, I have a question. At the start of the RP, will the group already be in One For Us, or will they meet for the first time?

  4. @XanthousXatu you are accepted!

    @Tudor21G you are accepted! Very nice background, and also you read my mind, I'll explain your question below.

    At the beginning of the RP, Toshi will only have just started the group, so the beginning of the story will mainly be meeting the people who want to join the group and then moving out from there. In the future, if other people join late in the story, they will most likely go through the same thing. Thanks for asking ^-^

  10. @Crystal1302 everything looks great, although one question I have is with the timeline. Does he join "One For Us" right after he leaves his grandparents at the age of 14 or later? We are all planning on really starting the group at the beginning of the story which is why I ask, sorry. :D

  12. Eh, I'll have a go with this, hopefully the choice of Pokemon is alright.

    Name:
    Alexander "Alex" Williams
    Gender: Male
    Age: 16 (Because everyone else is as well)
    Personality: Alex mainly comes off as a laid back and carefree individual, he still comes off as friendly as long as people are friendly to him... if they don't mind him getting a bit sassy or sarcastic from time to time. He loves Pokemon with all his heart as well as battles, seeing them as an incredible thrill that he can't get enough of.
    Appearance: Standing at 5'6" with smooth and short dark Brown hair, skin between Pale and Fair and Olive colored eyes, his physical frame is decent with no signs of either fat or muscle. His attire consists of a Black shirt with a Houndoom design on it, Gray baggy jeans and Black sneakers, above this he wears a knee long Red jacket with thick White fur linings along the bottom, sleeves and hood.
    Role: Member of "One For Us"
    Backstory: Born between a father working his way up the corporate ladder and a mother who works a lot at home, that latter did her best to make time to spend with Alex and gifted him a Rookidee for his 5th birthday. Alex' life hasn't been the most exciting one at times, usually playing at parks or arcades or playing with his Rookidee which evolved sometime after his 7th birthday. When he was 8, he met a girl who seemed to have several things in common with Alex and the two entered a promising friendship, the girl even telling Alex about Pokemon battles which Alex immediately caught interest in. Sadly, the girl's family were travelers and only stayed in Larimar City for a month before the girl was force to leave Alex. Ever since then, Alex learned about everything needed to be a Pokemon trainer and looked for every opportunity to battle others... as rare as that was. Sometime after his 14th birthday, his Corvisquire evolved into Corviknight and his parents briefly suggested he become a Corviknight cab driver, much to his annoyance...
    Other: He wants to be a trainer so he can hopefully meet that girl he met way back then. The most likely place people would find him is the park or arcade.

    Pokemon: Corviknight
    Name: Galahad
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Galahad is very kind and gentle--especially to small Pokemon, always listening to Alex without question--seeing the latter as an older brother. He can be very cautious as well, always ready to protect Alex from even the slightest sign of danger.
    Appearance: Despite his normal towering size, he looks like your everyday Corviknight.
    Other: He used to remain out of his Poke ball, but ever since he evolved into Corviknight, he's had to go in more often due to his size.

  15. Name: Alison "Allie" Silverstone
    Gender: Female
    Age: 14
    Personality: You'll find out. (most of you already know.)
    Appearance: Standing at a relatively average height of 5'5, Allie has bright blue hair and brown eyes. Her outfit varies, but usually is a skirt and t-shirt or something along those lines. She has a slim stature, and a long scar up her arm from a run-in with an Ursaring in her youth.
    Role: Member of "One For Us"
    Backstory: N/A
    Other: She is highly apiphobic. She's fine with Combee though, it's Vespiquen and Beedrill that trigger her phobia.

    Pokemon: Eevee
    Name: Eve
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Sassy and sarcastic, Eve's quite the character. You can guarantee that her Pokespeak will either translate to a snarky remark or an insult. Even so, she's incredibly loyal and wouldn't give Allie up for the world.
    Appearance: A relatively normal Eevee. Wears a small flower on her tail.
    Other: Cannot evolve, for reasons unknown.

  18. @Night's Shadow Quick question, do you have mod-approval for that Mega Absol?
     
  19. =Nightshade=

    =Nightshade= Previously Night's Shadow

    Not sure what that means
     
  20. =Nightshade=

    =Nightshade= Previously Night's Shadow

    @EeviumZ can u explain? I just joined Monday sooo...
     
  21. No problem! ^.^

    Put simply, you can't use mega evolution without asking the mods first. The best person to ask is StellarWind Elysdeon.

    It's not a simple process - you have to give a detailed character bio, prove that your character is worthy of having a Mega/Key Stone, and go into detail about how they got it. There also has to be proof of the bond between Trainer and Pokemon. If and when you're accepted, then you'll be able to use Mega Evolution for this specific character in any RP on the site. (E.G - If you applied for a Key Stone and Absolite for Raven and Absol and got accepted, you'd be able to use them in any RP - but only for Raven and Absol and not any other characters.)

    I very highly suggest reading the Pokemon RP Rules, they go into more detail about the process, as well as a bunch of other things you'll definitely want to know. They can be found here: https://pokecharms.com/threads/pokemon-role-play-rules.9451/

    These rules also apply for things like Battle Bond and Legendary Pokemon.

    Hope this helps! =D

  22. One question: Would it be better if we all knew each other at this point in time or if we're all new recruits?
     
  23. XanthousXatu

    XanthousXatu Previously SwiftSwoobat

    Knowing each other wouldn’t make sense, as they just joined this group.
     
  24. @Night's Shadow for the reasons @EeviumZ gave about your character bio and others, you character is denied until checked and cleared up. Your Absol sounds like a Mary Sue or close to one, so remake your bio and I’ll look into it for re-evaluation.

    @Crystal1302 sorry for the late response, my bad. I totally get your point but plot wise it could make sense if we all meet each other now, maybe some he already talked to just to skip the whole into part but we’ll do a quick character intro to get it started.
     
  25. =Nightshade=

    =Nightshade= Previously Night's Shadow

    Can I just leave that bio and say Absol can’t mega evolve? I’m on phone, so typing is a pain
     
  26. Well the fact that your Absol knows every move kind of makes it look overpowered. I’ll allow limited moves and maybe a few more but just make sure you don’t do anything OP in the role play or I’ll ask you to change it. For now, you’re accepted.
     
  27. You can edit the bio, if you'd like!

    On the left side of the post, there should be a little button that says "Edit". Click it, and it'll let you change your post. ^.^

    @ToshiThenAgain
    First off, thanks. Second off, I don't want to be a god character. I just want to be a character with power who knows how to use it. If you want, I can limit the moves Absol can use a bit more.

    @EeviumZ
    Thanks for the tip. I'm still getting used to the format of the site.
     
  29. No problem! Do let me know if you ever need help. I made similar mistakes when I first joined, you're definitely not alone. :3
     
  30. =Nightshade=

    Thanks. I made my first post on the RP. I like writing, but someone has to give me a plot, I can't make one up easily.
     
  31. Oh, I have the same problem. I'm getting better at it - I had to write a plotline for the RP I'm currently running.

    Nice first post, by the way!

    It's not that late, I joined this morning and recently posted.
     
  35. @LightNexus everything looks good, you're accepted.

    I'm sorry everyone for having such a late post. I really expected the story to progress a lot slower but our posting rate just skyrocketed while I was stuck in school, happy to see that but completely inconvenient for me. ;_;
    Now that we are all in a group together, the problem is making posts with enough spacing so that people aren't trying to post at the same time, I can work with it but we might need some communications at a point like this.

    7:40am - 4:00pm EST (Eastern Standard Time)

    So if I ever take forever to respond, this is probably the reason and apologizes if this makes anyone wait long.
