((please PM me if you want to join I'm looking for about 4-5 players hopefully before I start)) you along with a group of fellow trainers have been lucky enough to be invited to ride a ferry to the "strange island" that has been recently discovered. Hopeful for adventure and rare pokemon you hop on the ferry. After a long/short journey You and the rest of the group climb the steps of the hill excitedly only to find an empty field. No tall grass, no sand, not even a rock to break. The only thing to be found is a large stone egg in the center of the plateau with a tree growing around it. Curious one of your members walks over and touches it. The egg starts glowing as runic lines cross all over it. Suddenly the entire island shakes and before anyone can react the ground splits open and all the trainers present fall in to a bottomless pit. You awake in darkness. You try to move only to find yourself trapped in a small space, you try hitting the edge of the circular wall, It cracks and a little light shines through. After breaking free of the small prison you gasp at the scenery before you. Pidgey sing as they fly across a clear blue sky Overgrown trees surround you as their roots dig through a plethora of ruined buildings. Overall it is a scene that makes you wonder where in the world you were? You look around noticing a broken eggshell behind you. Why were you trapped in an egg? As you reach down for your bag, map, and/or pokemon you realize they are all missing. you try to run forward to find them only to trip and fall. All your limbs just feel 'wrong'. There's a puddle conveniently next to you, it seems it had just stopped raining, but when you look at it you don't see your own familiar face... instead a pokemon looks back at you. Glancing back at the eggshell understanding dawns on you. You've turned into a pokemon! As you stare stunned you hear an odd robotic voice "Congratulations you have hatched into a..." Hello and welcome to the strange and mysterious world of Wizen! The group starts off scattered but relatively close. There are multiple layers to this world going downwards. Whether it's to return home, find your pokemon and stuff, discover the secrets of this place, or return to your original form the only answers you find lead downwards. But be warned in the upper layers the pokemon are extremely aggressive and don't seem to be able to talk. You start off as a newly born pokemon, and a weird announcing system declares your levels and newly learned moves! You don't have to be at the correct level to learn a move you can figure out on your own but you automatically gain those moves at that level with no training or practice necessary. If you can figure out how to learn odd moves not on your pokedex entry go right ahead! However if you make up moves be clear on how they work and how you learned it. Also note that levels are a general representation of growth so you will also get experience from simply training, learning moves, and so on! everyone should have around the same level as well and they shouldn't be gained easily. The intro is a vague example of what occurred to you with slight differences depending on the character. ((Also this is my first time posting on this site so please don't kill me)) Character Sheet: Name: Gender: Age: Species: Appearance: (shiny or not/any defining features) Personality: Reason you came to the island/past history: (were you a researcher? in need of a strong pokemon to get that last badge? etc...)

Reason you came to the island/past history: Cinder was in the middle of training to face the Hoenn elite four after collecting all the regions badges, she wanted to be strong enough to do it in one go, when she was invited to the island by the region professor.
