Here is the link to the rp thread: https://pokecharms.com/threads/pokemon-mystery-dungeon-rp.21371/ Hello! I have just recently gotten the idea to create a Pokémon mystery dungeon based rp. This Rp will follow a group of Pokémon working to establish their very own Pokémon Exploration Team Guild. Throughout this rp I will work to come up with everyday quests and much larger scale explorations for everyone to enjoy. There will be a max limit of two characters, preferably your characters will only be first or second stage evolutions, they will be able to evolve later on but I would like to avoid too powerful of Pokémon at the beginning, thus forcing everyone to work together. We are still accepting, do not worry about joining late and having to catch up... in mystery dungeon Pokémon are recruited all the time! Spoiler: The Setting This Rp will take place in a continent not established in the previous mystery dungeon games called the Blaze Continent, though access to the other continents will be made available. Much of the Blaze Continent is made up of is savannah plains, but farther east the region becomes mountainous, with its trademark feature residing on the top of the largest mountain known as the flaming forest, in which the trees are made of stone and spout fire rather than leaves. The protagonists will begin near the northwestern coast in an area called Rustling Village. The Village is home to many common amenities, but some with different Pokémon running them from normal. There is the Machamp Move Hut where Machamp will help Pokémon learn new techniques. Clamperl and Delibird’s Bank and Storage, where you can safely keep your money and valuables. Maractus Café where you can eat and meet with other Pokémon. Brozong and Leavanny’s enhancement, boutique, and forgery; A strange stand that is a weird combination of a blacksmiths and a French boutique where you can pay the odd duo to have your items enhanced or have them create new ones for you. And, of course, the Kecleon Brothers Shop. A short hike south would lead you to the Serene Bluff, where the village elder, Gothitelle, who oversees affairs and gives advice dwells. On the coast there is Mantine transportation, able to bring exploration teams to other continents. The higher their rank, the more they have access to. There is also Drifblim delivery service which is a team of drifloons who wander around collecting expedition requirements and posting them on a board in Rustling Village. Spoiler: Character Sheet Name: Nickname: (Optional) Species: Gender: Ability: Appearance: (Is there anything that makes this Pokémon look different from others of its kind) Personality: Role: (Like fighter or healer) Moveset: (May be more than four, but try not to be overpowered) Background: (Optional but recommended. Can include upbringing, special skills, or things like your characters aspirations. Really anything that adds more depth to your character.) Spoiler: My Characters Spoiler: Sol Name: Sol Nickname: N/A Species: Growlithe Gender: Male Ability: Flash Fire Appearance: Sol is the typical height and weight for a Growlithe, but had a few traits that set him apart from others of his kind. He wears a navy scarf around his neck as well as a brown leather satchel that is also hung over his neck. Sol has blue eyes, a rare trait for his kind. And while it is purely aesthetic, the fire in his moves has some blue fire included amongst the typical red, orange, and yellow flames. Personality: Sol is a very kind and caring Pokémon, always doing whatever he can to help others. This desire fed his ambition to one day open his own exploration guild. Sol is also very intelligent and ambitious, allowing him to be a good leader for team members as he is able to keep a level head under pressure. Role: Eventually Guild Leader Moveset: Morning Sun, Flame Burst, Flame Charge, Bite, Dig Background: When Sol was young he had wandered into a forest looking for berries for his family to eat, on his way home he was attacked by a rogue Rhydon trying to steal his berries and valuables. Sol was badly beaten and had all his belongings stolen when a Blaziken ran in and defeated the Rhydon, returning Sol’s belongings afterwards. The Blaziken explained that he was a member of the expedition society and Rhydon was a criminal he was hunting down. Blaziken then returned Sol to his home safely. Since that day Sol wanted to become an expedition society member so he may do the same for other Pokémon. Spoiler: Mango Name: Mango Nickname: N/A Species: Gible Gender: Male Ability: Sand Veil Appearance: Mango has various cuts and scratches all over his body as a result of his clumsiness. He also wears a yellow scarf. Personality: Mango, while good natured and very kind, is not the brightest Pokémon. He lacks basic common sense and will often mess up the easiest of commands. Mango is also very clumsy, he will knock things over and trip on air. He is shockingly strong, though he can be easily defeated by the simplest of strategies. Nonetheless his passion for exploring makes him a valuable and fun addition to any team. Role: Wild Card Moveset: Dig, Sand Attack, Dragon Rage, Metal Claw Background: Mango went to the same Pokémon school as Sol growing up, just a year below in age. He admires the Growlithe’s proficiency in exploration and leadership and looks at him as a role model. Mango is often exploring easy dungeons on his own just for the fun of it. Spoiler: Brief Summary of Characters so Far Sol: Male Arcanine Tate: Male Shieldon Nora: Femlae Eevee Eve: Female Eevee Char: Male, kind of a mystery, Torracat* Tiara: Female Riolu Daniel: Male Ditto Sparkle: Male Emolga Bloom: Female Chikorita Jay: Male Monferno Hitari: Female Shiny Kirlia Mango: Male Gible Lily: Female Psyduck Marigold: Female Cutiefly Colin: Male Mawile Luck: Male Shinx Yosuke: Male Spheal Frosty: Male Cryogonal Gorem: Male Golett Spoiler: Guild Stats Guild Name: none yet Base: A small hide tent Rank: Normal Points: 65 Money in Guild Savings: 4,300P Members: Sol, Tate, Nora, Eve, Tiara, Jay, Hitari, Colin, Yosuke, Mango, Luck, Frosty, Gorem Spoiler: Exploration Requests Anyone may feel free to create their own exploration request missions to be submitted for approval, but if you do, you are responsible for role playing all characters directly involved in the request (clients, outlaws, etc). If you create a request you may create your own dungeon (as long as I approve it) or use a preexisting one. Spoiler: Template Description: Client: Objective: Location: Difficulty: Reward: Spoiler: Dungeons Anyone can feel free to submit a dungeon idea for approval. Spoiler: Static Plains Located in a large Savannah Plain, the strange magnetic field of the area causes the long grass to be charged with electricity, occasionally shocking certain Pokémon with fur that venture off of the fixed paths. Spoiler: Pokémon Blitzle, Pachirisu, Starly, Sentret, Stantler Spoiler: Whistling Woods Tall trees tower tall overhead, only letting a little sunlight trickle through. The odd circular shapes the branches form and strange holes in the tree trunks causes a whistling sound to occur as wind blows through. While traveling be wary of hostile Pokémon using grass whistle! Spoiler: Pokémon Zigzagoon, Pansage, Deerling, Taillow Spoiler: Spike Cavern In a small hill in the southeast of the Blaze Continent there is a crevice that seems to open to the center of the earth. Those brave enough to journey through will find themselves trudging through knee deep water as jagged stones hang above them. There are side tunnels that diverge from the main route, supposedly leading to great treasure. Legends say at the deepest point of the cavern there is an entrance to a far more sinister and dangerous dungeon. Spoiler: Pokémon Wooper, Carbink, Noibat, Stunfisk Spoiler: Meringue Meadows A flowery meadow that is home to many fairy and grass pokemon and sweet fruit. Created by @Crystal1302 Spoiler: Pokémon Combee, Flabebe, Slurpuff, Cherubi, Bounsweet Spoiler: Whirling Lake One of the biggest lakes on Blaze Continent. Whirling Lake is the home to various fish and other aquatic Pokémon, and to the finest kelp and seaweed, which is located in the center of the lake. Due to the kelps limited amount, the Pokémon fight for it once or twice a day, often creating whirlpools. There are bridges all across the lake, making getting from one shore to another very easy. Spoiler: Pokémon Finneon, Wishiwashi, East Sea Shellos, Alomomola, Tympole,Tentacool, Corsola. Spoiler: Hidden Hallow A cavernous dungeon. It gives off an ominous and threatening vibe, with very little light. The Pokemon tend to be a bitterritorial here. Spoiler: Pokémon Houndour, Zigzagoon, Sneasel, Poochyena, Sandile, Sableye. Spoiler: Notes (will constantly be updated) Loopets and Emeras will not be included. You may rp your own wild encounters and interactions with shopkeepers in Rustling Village. Unlike the games, evolution is available. Orbs, Seeds, Scarfs, and other PMD exclusive items will be included. IQ will play a role but not as overpowered as in the games. IQ will be gained from experience (not gummies) and will grant more minor power ups (like throwing items do more damage as a result of learning a new skill) If you are inactive for more than two days without notice we will proceed without you. Hunger will not have as much of an influence as it does in the games. If your characters are hungry they can eat, if not, they will just be a little hungry.
