Pokemon: Hoenn Crisis Discussion and Introduction It is yet another beautiful spring season in the Hoenn region, a region teeming with life. A peaceful coexistence with nature's creatures, known as Pokemon, with the humans, has led to quite the prosperous society. Some use these creatures as pets, raising them in a comfortable environment. Others use them to "battle", pitting their strengths against one another in good-natured duels. And still others dedicate themselves to studying and researching the vast potential these magical creatures have. However... there are those whose hearts are filled with malice, only seeing Pokemon as nothing more than tools to use for their own personal gain. Two such individuals, known as Archie and Maxie, have formed organizations of their own dedicated to enslaving certain legendary Pokemon to change the very landscapes themselves! And it looks like you're along for the ride, good for you! Spoiler: RULES 1. Obey all PokeCharms rules 2. Any disputes with fellow roleplayers must be put aside for the sake of the RP 3. I shouldn't have to say this but no Mary-Sues/Gary-Stus 4. Final say in any and all decisions comes to me 5. Romance is allowed, keep it PG-13 please and thank you 6. I will allow ONE Mega Pokemon per team. To clarify, you can have multiple Pokemon with the potential to Mega Evolve, but you can only choose ONE to Mega Evolve throughout the RP, which you should mark with (M) next to the species name; let's try to keep us from being OP too quickly; The ten year olds have to have a chance, you know? lol 7. Start off as grunts and work your way up. My characters will be the admins for plot-based reasons(mainly so we can keep the story moving along lol) 8. Max Pseudo legendary Pokemon allowed on a team at once are 2(for now. I might change it as we get stronger) Spoiler: CHARACTER FORM TEMPLATE Name: Age: Gender: Sexuality: Team: Appearance: Motivation: Personality: Spoiler: POKEMON TEAM TEMPLATE (You may use this template once for each Pokemon your character possesses, up to six in your party.) Species: Nickname: (If none, just put Species name here as well) Moves: Spoiler: MAGMA ADMIN CHARACTER Name: Axel Hanzel Age: 24 Gender: Male Sexuality: Straight Team: Magma Admin Appearance: Standing at about 6'0, he has a slightly muscular build, combined with piercing red eyes and jet black shoulder length spiky hair. The only piece of clothing he wears that even suggests he's in Team Magma is a long red scarf with the Magma insignia on it. Otherwise, he's just wearing a black t-shirt with jeans and red running shoes. Motivation: He originally joined Team Magma because he thought the concept of more land meant more Pokemon, but later realized how dumb that was. Now, he's just along for the ride, harboring a loose loyalty for Maxie as an admin. Personality: More of a laid back fellow, he gets pumped whenever he has to battle. He isn;t all that serious about his job, and he's actually a nice guy once you get to know him. You can also almost always find him with a cigarette in his mouth, an addiction he's been trying to quit. Spoiler: MAGMA ADMIN TEAM Species: Houndoom(M) Gender: Male Nickname: Cerberus Moves: Foul Play, Flamethrower, Shadow Ball(TM), Sludge Bomb(TM), Inferno, Giga Impact(TM) Species: Lairon Gender: Male Nickname: Bastion Moves: Iron Tail, Rock Slide, Take Down, Earthquake(TM), Iron Defense, Shadow Claw(TM) Species: Talonflame Gender: Female Nickname: Phoenix Moves: Brave Bird, Flare Blitz, Razor Wind, Steel Wing, Sunny Day(TM), Hyper Beam(TM) Spoiler: AQUA ADMIN CHARACTER Name: Cray Tempest Age: 27 Gender: Male Sexuality: Straight Team: Aqua Admin Appearance: Cray stands at about 6'3 with an average build. He has short wavy blonde hair with emerald green eyes, and some stubble on his face. He wears a blue wife-beater with gray cargo pants and black work boots. The Aqua bandanna hangs around his neck which he doesn't really use. Motivation: Cray has loved the sea ever since he was a little kid. When he heard about Team Aqua's ambitions, he jumped at the chance to expand the sea for the sake of Pokemon. He quickly rose in rank to settle at Admin for now. Personality: He isn't very liked by the other Admins due to his excitable attitude. He doesn't mind the clashes, however; all that matters is his(and Archie's) dreams. He cares for his Pokemon dearly and will do what it takes to protect them. Spoiler: AQUA ADMIN TEAM Species: Gyarados Gender: Male Nickname: Levi, short for Leviathan Moves: Hydro Pump, Hyper Beam, Dragon Rage, Dragon Dance, Hurricane, Avalanche(TM) Species: Noivern Gender: Female Nickname: Soundwave Moves: Hurricane, Dragon Pulse, Boomburst, Shadow Claw(TM), Giga Impact(TM) Species: Sharpedo Gender: Female Nickname: Torpie Moves: Night Slash, Poison Fang, Aqua Jet, Skull Bash, Rain Dance(TM), Earthquake(TM) Spoiler: CURRENT RP PARTICIPANTS Spoiler: EeviumZ Name: Lily Argon Age: 18 Gender: Female Sexuality: Asexual Team: Magma Appearance: Standing at a height of 5'7, Lily has long, black hair and emerald green eyes. She has a very slim stature and pale skin, with no defining facial markings. She wears the typical female Team Magma uniform. Motivation: She really doesn't want to be here. She was pressured into joining, and decided to give in to seem "cool". She does, however, pretend to fit in, and she does it very well - she's gained a lot of respect and even a little bit of fear. Personality: On the surface, Lily is an alpha girl. She's essentially your stereotypical high-school popular girl, with a mean streak and a sarcastic but girly demeanor. However, beneath this convincing facade is a lonely teen desperate to fit in - as a former bullied child, she seeked to gain the respect of others - and was forced to take a less than kind path. She opens only to those she trusts, and that's rare. If you do manage to break her cold exterior, though - she'll be the best friend you've ever had. Pokemon Team (details will be added later): Blitz the Ponyta (F) Known Moves: Flame Charge, Swift, Double Kick, Substitute, Agility Shimmer the Mawile (F) Known Moves: Crunch, Iron Head, Protect, Power-Up Punch Shadow the Absol (M) Known Moves: Double Team, Swords Dance, Night Slash, Shadow Claw, Icy Wind Name: Gracie Pickering Age: 17 Gender: Female Sexuality: Straight Team: Aqua Appearance: Gracie has blonde hair with light-blue streaks, along with green eyes. She stands at the diminutive height of 5'4, with a petite stature and pale skin. Motivation: She doesn't really know why she's here. She just thought it'd be fun. (It's not, but she doesn't care.) Personality: Gracie... tries too hard. She's overly cheery, and always wants to "prove herself". Little can faze her, although that's often because she's very oblivious. Though she's kind and sweet, good luck finding someone who knows that - no one likes her. Does she know that? Yes. Does she care? Nah... (Oh, but don't make her angry. If you value your life, that is.) Pokemon Team: Everest the Tyranitar (M) Known Moves: Stomping Tantrum, Crunch, Fire Fang, Retaliate, Bulldoze Chrome the Duraludon (M) Known Moves: Dragon Tail, Flash Cannon, Hone Claws, Rock Smash Spoiler: Pinch Name: Thomas Silver Age: 17 Gender: Male Sexuality: Straight Team: Aqua Grunt Appearance: Thomas is 5'9, caucasian, and has shaggy black hair. He has light blue eyes and he wears a white T-shirt under a grey flannel jacket with black jeans and brown leather boots when not in uniform. Motivation: Thomas works in Team Aqua in order to provide for his parents and little sister. He's the only one capable of working and although he doesn't necessarily want to work for Archie, he does it for them. Personality: Thomas is a particularly hard worker- once he has his mind set on completing something, he normally doesn't stop until the task is complete. He also doesn't really have any friends yet, but he comes off as generally friendly and cooperative to the people he has talked to and worked with. Pokemon Team: Species: Prinplup (F) Nickname: Charlemagne Moves: Bubble Beam, Brick Break, Drill Peck, Rain Dance, Aerial Ace, Double Team.

Name: Declan McKinley Age: 15 Gender: Male Sexuality: Straight Team: None Appearance: Declan stands at 5'7, he has light blonde hair that doesn't go very far past his ears and hazel eyes. He wears a black T shirt under a white jacket which he normally has off and grey tracksuit pants. His shoes are typical runners coloured blue and grey. Motivation: Declan wants to help People and Pokemon alike, which is one of the reasons he's on a journey around Hoenn, however his ultimate goal on his journey is to complete the Gym Challenge, which he's already three badges into. Personality: Declan is a happy and cheerful person most of the time, who cares deeply for the safety of his Pokemon and those around him. He has a massive love for Pokemon in particular and has wanted to be a professional trainer since he was much younger, much like his parents before him. Pokemon Team: Grovyle (M) Moves: Leaf Blade, Mega Drain, Swords Dance, Low Sweep, Double Kick, Detect. Zangoose (F) Moves: Crush Claw, Thunder Punch, Hone Claws, Revenge, Quick Attack, Slash. Breloom (F) Moves: Mach Punch, Leech Seed, Giga Drain, Protect, Headbutt, Force Palm. Trapinch (M) Moves: Laser Focus, Sandstorm, Dig, Rock Slide, Bulldoze. Spoiler: Red Gallade Name: Marcus Azure Age: 18 Gender: Male Sexuality: Straight Team: Aqua Grunt Appearance: Standing at 5'11" with rather Pale skin, sky Blue eyes and dark Gray hair long enough to reach his chin. His attire isn't like the rest of Team Aqua; He instead wears a light Gray turtleneck with two cross straps on it under an ankle long closed Charcoal coat with a collar large enough to reach the top of his ears and the team Aqua insignia on the back, he also wears Black pants and Brown boots. Personality: Marcus is a man of few words and is mainly seen with a serious look on his face, he wouldn't hesitate to battle/attack someone who goes against his--or Team Aqua's--dreams and has shown distinct signs of cruelty toward Team Aqua. He isn't completely heartless however as he has a strong love for Pokemon thanks to his family having lived on a farm and having a gift that makes most Pokemon like him, his love for Pokemon is strong enough that he openly questions his own men if they ever tried anything that would harm wild Pokemon. Motivation: He joined Team Aqua because he wanted to help out with making a better world for Pokemon, whom he adores very much. Pokemon: Shelgon (F), Seismitoad (M), Scolipede (F) Spoiler: Captain Cardboard Name: Akane Fujimoto Age: 15 Gender: Female Sexuality: Straight Team: Aqua Grunt Appearance: Akane is rather short, coming in at 4'11. She's got short black hair and blue eyes. While with Team Aqua, she sticks with the older style of uniform with baggy blue pants and a white and black striped shirt that leaves her midriff showing. Instead of wearing her blue bandanna on her head, like other grunts, she wears it as a mask over her mouth and nose. She will also draw the Team Aqua symbol on her left arm while she's around other members. Motivation: Akane is in it for the money, strangely enough. Her family is quite poor, so she sends most of what she earns from working for Team Aqua back to them. She doesn't really believe that Team Aqua will ever have the power to 'increase the ocean's or whatever, and if anything just thinks that they might be able to bring notice to issues such as water pollution. Personality: Akane doesn't really like most of the stuff she has to do as a grunt. Therefor, she's pretty grumpy most of the time. She knows she's in a gang, so she's not really too keen on making friends with other grunts. But she really cares about her Pokemon and family and friends. She's not afraid to throw a punch if she has to, and will definitely show it if she gets angry. She's kinda secretive, and doesn't like to show her actual face to her fellow grunts. Overall, doesn't really talk too much. She tries not to talk at all, if possible. Spoiler: Pokemon Team Species: Horsea Nickname: Sean Moves: Smokescreen, Octozooka, Focus Energy, Bubblebeam, Twister, Mimic Species: Tentacool Nickname: Lars Moves: Acid, Toxic Spikes, Water Pulse, Wrap, Confuse Ray Species: Goldeen Nickname: Queenie Moves: Peck, Horn Attack, Water Pulse, Agility, Tail Whip, Aqua Ring Spoiler: XanthousXatu Name: Brett Montgomery Age: 24 Gender: Male Sexuality: Heterosexual Team: Magma Appearance: Tall and lanky, Brett stands out from the rest of the grunts. He wears the standard grunt uniform, nothing too special. Brett also has light blonde hair and blue eyes. Motivation: Brett doesn’t think of Pokémon as of having emotions, so he sees no wrong in Team Magma’s plans. Personality: Quiet and timid, Brett doesn’t talk much and isn’t very outgoing. He is rather reserved, though will battle as a last resort. Species: Breloom Nickname: Breloom Moves: Leech Seed, Mind Reader, Dynamic Punch, Toxic, Thunder Punch, Seed Bomb. Species: Nincada Nickname: Nincada Moves: Mud-Slap, False Swipe, Gust, Scratch. Species: Trapinch Nickname: Trapinch Moves: Astonish, Laser Focus, Bite, Sand Tomb Spoiler: Night's Shadow Name: Adaira (Dare) Black Age: 16 Gender: Female Sexuality: Straight Team: Magma Appearance: Dare looks exactly how her name entails; daring. White-blonde hair with a streak of blood red tied up in a high, lopsided ponytail sets off her black leather jacket with the Magma seal on it. Black jeans complete the effect, a red shirt on under the jacket. Dare also wears a red diamond on a gold chain around her neck. She has a tattoo of a raven on the back of her neck. Motivation: Isn’t necessarily evil, just wants to become a powerful fire-type trainer and go on to win leagues. Personality: What’s her name? Oh right, Dare. She will take any challenge to heart, but is not unintelligent. She won’t take unnecessary risks, but somehow finds ways to do the seemingly impossible. Pokemon: Species: Houndoom Nickname: Doom Gender: Male Moves: Fire Fang, Foul Play, Odor Sleuth, Nasty Plot, Fire Blast, Ember, Inferno, Last Resort (I’ll probably add more later) *stays out of Pokeball most of the time Species: Talonflame Nickname: Talon Gender: Male Moves: Brave Bird, Acrobatics, Bulk Up, Psychic, Swords Dance, Flare Blitz (I’ll probably add more later) *used for transportation mostly Spoiler: Merciless Medic Name: Feray Siegfried Age: Nobody knows how old she is, but she is 25. Gender: Female Sexuality: Straight Team: Both Appearance: Feray is 5 feet (152.4 cm) tall and weighs 120 lbs (54.4 kg). She is a bit stocky due to her height, but she still has toned muscles that accentuate her core and legs. She has short black hair that is cut like a boy's and has brown eyes. She commonly wears a dark grey trench coat, combat boots, black cargo pants, and a black shirt. The most telling mark on her body is on her right shoulder, where she got cut trying to save a Duskull when she was 14. Motivation: An agent working for Interpol needs her to find out what Team Aqua and Team Magma are doing. So she will be taking the task of finding out what they are both doing by acting like their double agents. Personality: She is incredibly serious, but still has a funny bone that can be tickled when she sees someone she's hunting down do something completely stupid. She is also highly secretive, as she works for a place where they have to keep secrets from the public, so talking about herself or what she does for a living may not be great conversation starters for her. This can cause distrust in others because of the way she constantly lies to keep her job. Despite that, she is very caring and will do generally all that she can to help others (within the parameters of rules that she is bound to, of course). She is a wonderful actress, but she tends to not do to well with her Pokemon in terms of understanding them. The only Pokemon she understands the most happens to be her Dusclops, but even then it's difficult. Species: Dusclops - Ghost Nickname: Zwirra (pronounced: Z-ver-ra) Gender: Male Ability: Frisk - Can see what the opponent is holding in terms of items. Can work on humans and Pokémon. Hidden Power: Fighting Special Features: His wraps are more raggedy. History: He was living on Route 209 before a Roselia attacked him. After Feray saved him and took him to the PokéCenter to get treated, he wanted to be with her for as long as she was still alive. He evolved into Dusclops through their little adventure through Sinnoh. Personality: He is very loyal and will do anything to keep Feray safe. He is super careful and is capable of taking hits for his trainer when necessary. All he wants is for his trainer to be safe and happy, but her job keeps her from being safe all the time, causing him undue amounts of stress as he tries to take care of her in a fatherly fashion. Love Relationships?: None, as he can't have any. Four Favorite Moves Used: Hidden Power - Fighting | Special | Zwirra focuses all of his inner power into a sphere and throws it at the opponent, dealing damage that Fighting-Types would use with their chi/aura. Confuse Ray - Ghost | Status | Zwirra releases spooky, blinking, yellow lights to appear around the opponent and tries to confuse them with the mystical power emanating from them. Pursuit - Dark | Physical | Zwirra quickly runs up to the foe or person before they try to flee or return into their Poké Ball and smacks them with the back of his hand or tackles them with his full body, doing more damage. If they don't flee, he runs up to them and overwhelms them with his quickness and either slaps them or tackles them. Will-O-Wisp - Fire | Status | Zwirra releases floating blue orbs of fire that encircle the opponent and attaches themselves to them, causing periodic burns. Species: Abra - Psychic Nickname: N/A Gender: Male Ability: Synchronise - When this Pokemon gets afflicted by a status condition, this Pokemon's opponent also gets inflicted with the same status conditon. Hidden Power: Flying Special Features: He is a whole foot smaller than the average Abra. History: He was bred to help investigators, who work for Interpol, to travel to places quickly, especially when their mission needs them to. Personality: He is very quiet and prefers to keep to himself. He will act out of loyalty for Interpol, but he doesn't have any respect for Feray, seeing as how she is very strange with Pokemon and he hasn't been with her long enough. Love Relationships?: None, as he can't have any. Four Favorite Moves Use: Teleport - Psychic | Status | Abra will teleport himself and any Pokemon and humans it wants to take with to another location he remembers. Hidden Power - Flying | Special | Abra creates a ball of sky blue Flying-Type energy and throws it at the target. Shadow Ball - Ghost | Special | Abra creates a shadowy blob of energy to throw at the target. It has a chance to lower the target's elemental defense. Dazzling Gleam - Fairy | Special | Abra flashes a blinding bright light of fairy energy at the opponent. This can cause any Pokemon to see the flash to be blinded temporarily. Species: Poochyena - Dark Nickname: Mighty Gender: Female Ability: Rattled - When hit by Bug-, Ghost-, or Dark-Type attack or when Intimidated, this Pokemon gets faster. Special Features: N/A History: Feray caught her when she was trying to find a Pokemon that Grunts in Aqua and Magma use. Personality: She is quite loyal to Feray, despite her awkwardness with Pokemon. She is also quite loud and loves to play and fight. Love Relationships?: None, as she can't have any. Four Favorite Moves Used: Bite - Dark | Physical | Mighty bites down on the opponent. The target has a chance to flinch.

Species: Carvanha - Water Dark Nickname: N/A Gender: Male Ability: Rough Skin - When a Pokemon makes direct contact with this Pokemon, the attacking Pokemon gets hurt. Special Features: N/A History: Will be received when Feray joins Team Aqua's ranks. Personality: Carvanha is savage beyond belief and is loyal to Feray, but he doesn't know that Feray is a spy. If he knows, there will be consequences for Feray. He doesn't know whether to respect her or not, since she is sweet, yet awkward with them. Love Relationships?: None, as he can't have any. Four Favorite Moves Used: Aqua Jet - Water | Physical | Carvanha envelopes itself in water and charges at the opponent in a blue blur. Assurance - Dark | Physical | Carvanha attacks the opponent right after they receive damage, doing double the normal amount of damage. If the opponent didn't receive damage, it will deal normal damage. Either way, Carvanha will use its fins to attack. Poison Fang - Poison | Physical | Carvanha's teeth become enveloped in oozing poison and he bites the target. This has a chance to badly poison the target. Bounce - Flying | Physical | Carvanha bounces high up in to the air, and then falls down onto the opponent. This may cause paralysis. This can be interrupted from Smack Down and Thousand Arrows, and be hit if the attack used was Thunder, Sky Uppercut, move affected by either Lock-On, Mind Reader, or Laser Focus, if the target has No Guard or this Pokemon has No Guard, and Hurricane. It will receive double damage from Gust and Twister. Species: Numel - Fire Ground Nickname: N/A Gender: Male Ability: Simple - This makes any changes to its mind and body more effective. Special Features: N/A History: Will be received when Feray joins Team Magma's ranks. Personality: Numel is a little slow, but really sweet and is loyal to Feray, but he doesn't know that Feray is a spy. If he knows, there will be consequences for Feray. He doesn't know whether to respect her or not, since she is sweet, yet awkward with them. Love Relationships?: None, as he can't have any. Four Favorite Moves Used: Flamethrower - Fire | Special | Numel breathes a stream of fire at the target. This has a chance to burn and defrosts Pokemon. Magnitude - Ground | Physical | Numel smashes into the ground, sending tremors all throughout the field. This may be weak or super strong.
