South of the mainland the Omnia region presents an irresistible challenge, for trainers looking to become champion. The Omnia region is home to the Omnia Pokemon League, which specializes in close knit bonds between Pokemon and Trainer. Before a Trainer can even acquire a gym badge, they must complete a test of their bond with their pokemon. To become champion, one must face fierce challenges, and incredible odds. The Omnia Region is also home to the Alvarius Project, which is responsible for many of the technological marvels seen in the region. Other than the occasional protest, this region is very peaceful, and rich with great challenges and even greater rewards for those who look to be the best. Will you accept the Challenge? This RP is about exploring the region of Omnia and becoming the champion of its league. As well as investigating the conflict between the Alvarius Project and its biggest detractors Team Tenebris, and Team Lux Right now the story is very open ended, and badges can be obtained in any order. What makes this different from playing pokemon is that you will be posting for both your Trainer and their Pokemon and, giving both of their perspectives on what is happening. Character development is a must for later. Rules: Spoiler 1: Pokecharm’s rules must be followed. 2:Leave Actions open ended to give others time to respond. If you want to do something without in game consent, you must get permission in OOC or private. 3:If you want to derail the plot, then please message me so that I can approve your idea. 4:Trainer interactions are written as normal, Pokemon interactions, namely dialogue are written in italics. Important interactions are bold. 5:Adding to the rule above. Pokemon can communicate clearly with other Pokemon, but not their Trainers, and vice versa. Pokemon and their trainers can understand each other through body language, tone, ect, but cannot understand pokespeak unless approved. 6:Be good to each other, characters not withstanding. 7:Have fun! NPC characters. NPCs are characters not under control of the players, and exist to move the story along. These can be anything, from townsfolk to wild Pokemon. Gym Leaders also fall into this category. If you have an idea for a character, or want to control a NPC, you must PM me for approval. Named NPC’s cannot be controlled. Wild Pokemon, if caught will become a part of your characters group. Character Forms: Spoiler Trainer Name: Gender: Age: Appearance: (height, weight, build, and hair, also go here.)

Notable Locations: Spoiler The Omnia Region is home to a great many attractions as well as a thriving Nightlife. The Region itself is divided into four districts. The central district, Alpha is in the center. Most of the Omnia region is heavily industrialized, but also surprisingly clean. In addition, many areas of nature have been preserved and rest mostly untouched with many hiking trails leading to beautiful forests and natural waterways. Alpha holds the capital of Omnia, Tietokone City with three major routes branching out into the other three districts Beta, Delta, and Gamma. The Alpha District also contains several attractions such as the Pokeoplis Amusement Park, as well as numerous museums, galleries, clubs as well as the Ultradome where the League Tournament takes place. The Alvarius Project’s main facility is also here, as well as the Omnia Leagues Elite Four, and Champion. Route 10 leads northwest to the Beta District, which contains Microsoor City, Aerodive City, and Sansoon City. Beta District is the entertainment hub of the Region. Theatres, Dancing, and shows are big highlights. There are also several festivals here to celebrate the different types of Pokemon. Team Tenebris’s stronghold is also in this area. Route 20 leads east to the Delta District, which is the industrial part of the region with cities like Batteira City, Geatine City and Cannonport City. Delta District holds many businesses that specialize in manufacturing, and engineering. Several virtual arcades are also present, as well as the Pokepolis waterpark near the coast of Cannonport City. The region’s power plant is also here. Route 30 leads south to the Gamma District, which is the regions center of agriculture. The most prominent cities are, Agri Town, Simustine City, and Sonseer City. The Gamma District differs from the rest of the region in that it has the least populated areas. Farms and markets are common sights, with the big attraction there being the Poke Fields Sanctuary, where numerous Pokemon live in peace. Team Lux’s stronghold is also in this area. Gym Leaders: Spoiler In order to obtain a gym badge in Omnia. Trainers must complete a bonding exercise to show that they and their Pokemon, trust each other completely. Then they must battle the gym leader to complete the challenge. Bonding Exercises can be extremely varied, and will challenge the trust and loyalty of a pokemon and it’s trainer. An example is having a pokemon lead it’s blindfolded train through an obstacle course, to show that a trainer is in tune with their pokemon enough to understand it’s instructions, in spite of the language barrier.

The Alvarius Project is currently attempting to understand how the bond between human and pokemon can brighten the future. As such the science team is very strict with who is allowed to assist their work. Team Tenebris and Team Lux: Team Tenebris and Team Lux are two rival factions that are made up of former Alvarius employees, that split from the project due to their ideals. Team Tenebris believes that humans are superior to Pokemon, and that they are not needed for the future. In battle they favor Dark, Steel, and Fire type Pokemon Team Lux believes that Pokemon are superior to humans and that nature should be allowed to take its proper course. In battle they favor Fairy, Grass, and Water type Pokemon. Both teams share two things in common. The means to their goals are contained within the Alvarius Project, and most people in the region dismiss them as a nuisance at worst. Battles: Woo! Almost done! A big thumbs-up if you've made it this far! Spoiler Battles in this roleplay will be broken up into two categories Field Battles and Story Battles Field battles will occur when the group either encounters wild Pokemon or Team Tenebris and Team Lux. Field battles are Improv free-for-alls we're both Pokemon and trainer are involved and can be attacked. You must work together with your fellow players to emerge Victorious. Story battles are more organized and usually act as a normal Pokemon battle. These can be arranged between players and are also the final test of a gym battle. These also function as boss battles with named NPCs The way these will work it's at the beginning of the battle a player has the option to take the first turn. They will then write their actions in a way that is left open ended for their opponent, who will then write a response detailing their Pokemon’s reaction, and counterattack. The outcome will be determined by the creativity of the battle, The interactions between the pokemon and their trainers, and how the Pokemon's moves are used to its advantage. Points can be removed by having the Pokemon perform moves that it either does not know, does not fit into its move pool or are simply out of character. Extra points can be rewarded by properly performing a two-turn move. Namely the first turn is used to prepare for the second turn and, also by taking pokemon types and strengths and weaknesses into consideration. I think that will just about do it. If you are interested, or have any ideas you would like me to use, let me know! I am open to suggestions, questions, and any other tions! _____ My Characters Spoiler Trainer Name: Lauren Lyonelle (Lori) Gender: Female Age: 19 Appearance: Tall at about 5:10 and slender at about 130 pounds.

She also has small freckles on her cheeks. Outfit: A dark grey tank top with the logo of an obscure indie band called the Pokeloution. A dark purple skirt, white and purple boots and matching fingerless gloves. Purple rimmed glasses, a light blue backpack, and a purple locket around her neck. Personality: Somewhat shy and reclusive due to not knowing anyone from the region. More outspoken with people she knows but is almost always serious about everything. She also loves to gossip, and enjoys quiet days, observing pokemon, or reading a good book. Brief Backstory: Lauren is the child of a researcher in the Kanto Region. She was sent to the Omnia Region as it seemed like a great place for her to learn how to work with others and their pokemon. Lauren is apprehensive about it though, as she has hardly learned to work with her Sylveon, Amber. Inventory: A Pokedex, a day’s worth of food for her and Amber both, headphones, some money, a couple of her favorite books, and a pokeball for Amber to rest in. It looks like a love ball but is just a normal pokeball. Pokemon Name: Amber Tate (Amber) Pokemon: Sylveon Type: Fairy Personality: Optimistic, and fun loving, treating life and battles like games. Extremely hyperactive, and has trouble staying still because of her habit of using her ribbons to sample coffee, and sweets that the humans around her are not watching. She is also a total tease around any male pokemon. Backstory: Amber Tate originally belonged to Lauren's Father, but was given to her as a going away present to celebrate Laurens new adventure in Omnia. Amber appreciated the change as it was better than staying in the house, not doing anything all day…Even if her new trainer has a stick up her butt. Favorite Moves: Attract, Draining Kiss, Swift, Play Rough.
