So, this is an RP Idea that I think I created at a worse time. I’ve never created a Pokémon RP, and I think my idea could be interesting. If you know me from a different RP I tried to make, the Persona RP to be specific, you probably knew that I nuked it not too long after it started. The reason for that was that I felt(not to be rude in any aspect, but) that most of the people in that RP didn’t really know what Persona was, and that’s mostly my fault for including a link to a website where you could find out more information, when in reality, I probably should’ve just let people join if they were at least acquainted with the series. With me sounding like an a**hole(which is totally fine, cause I kinda do right now), let me describe the story. This story takes place in both the human world(Earth), where humans live alone with other humans and animals, and the Pokémon World, a world where only Pokémon live. The people and Pokémon of these worlds believed that neither of the other existed, and only theirs was real. Both worlds have trace hints of the opposite existing, but this evidence is in the hands of certain people among both, a group, or rather, organization, known as the Searchers. The Searchers are people and Pokémon of both respective worlds that were tasked with researching the artifacts that depicted the knowledge that another world could exist, one with life forms different than their own. Both groups from both worlds believed that there was another world, and tried their hardest to connect them. This was impossible until an artifact known as the Soul Splitter was found. Each world found one half of the device, and once they realized what could be done with it, they successfully opened a portal that connected the worlds. As Pokémon and humans conversed, the began sending humans and Pokémon to live in either world for a period of time. What they didn’t know was that the Soul Splitter split any souls that passed through the portal(if they passed into the world that wasn’t theirs) and made a new life form, a Pokémon for Humans, and a human for Pokémon, randomly in the world. These Pokémon and humans that shared soul bonds were known as the Soulbound, a new kind of human or Pokémon. Soulbound are able to communicate the language of the other world, as well as beign able to take share forms, where in the human world, humans can share a body with Pokémon, and in the Pokémon world, Pokémon can share a body with humans. They’re also able to completely swap their bodies, giving full control to the respective other, which works in between worlds. However, before the Searchers were able to completely finish all respective research, another group formed. This group had the name of the Conquerors, a group that believed that they could conquer the other world. This group was also on both worlds, and they attacked the Searchers to steal their research. Before the Conquerors could reach the Soul Splitter, the chief of both groups of Searchers called back their humans and Pokémon to their worlds, and shut the portal, taking each half of their research and the Soul Splitter with them. While the chieves held back the Conquerors, a single Pokémon and Human were sent to hide the valuable research, and more importantly, the Soul Splitter. These two did indeed share the half of the others soul, and each vowed to erase their memories before the portal was closed. All other Searchers were killed in the fight.After that, humans became legend and fiction to Pokémon, while Pokémon became entertainment to humans. The offspring of the two that hid the research do indeed share bonds in order of their birth. But they do not know this, as the memories and history have been somewhat erased... Fast forward to today, a lot farther in the future. Humans are living in peace with other humans, and a huge franchise in their world is Pokémon, a fictional game, anime, and card series revolving around animal like creatures with elemental powers. And in the Pokémon world, Pokémon have built towns, and Humans are a common fiction in kids tales and legends. You, on the other hand... you start to have dreams. Dreams of villages and cities so detailed and beautiful, foods so delicious looking, devices never seen before. But they aren’t real, their just dreams. At least, that’s what you think. You wake up in the night, sometimes, so overcome with amazement. And then, you go back to sleep, your a bit disappointed that it was only a dream. You often write descriptions, make drawings, and even somethings attempt to create food or devices from your dreams. Some people you share with are amazed. Others are a little creeped out. But, alas, you know this world couldn’t exist... could it? The following contains the Character Bio and Rules for the RP Spoiler: BIO For this RP, you will need to create a character for your human, a character that will represent half of your soul, and your Pokémon, a character that will represent the other half. Your Pokémon may not be a legendary, mythical, or Pokémon from Galar(yet), and your Human cannot be a Mary Sue or Gary Stu. Chose who you want to represent yourself wisely. Human Bio: Name: Gender: Age: Sexuality: Personality: Appearance: History: Favorite Food: Feeling towards dreams: Pokémon Bio Name: Gender: Age: Species: Sexuality: Personality: Appearance: History: Favorite Food Feeling towards dreams: The personalities and favorite foods need to be similar in one way, but different. (For example, your human and Pokémon could both have a quirky nature, but one is really hyper and friendly and the other is calm and introverted) Rules: -PokeCharms standard rules, They can be found under the Roleplay tab -No Mary Sues or Gary Stus -I will ask if Legendaries/Mythicals can be mentioned. Also, Galar is out at the time of me remaking this, so I'm good with that. -Romance allowed, nothing past kissing, but please make it in between others and not your own Soulbound partner. That’s just... really weird. -You and your Soulbound partner can be different genders, I have no objections to that. For Genderless Pokémon, please provide an applicable suffix(For example, Frosty, My Cryogonal, is Genderless, but I use “he, him, and his” to talk about him.) -Please try to make posts about 5 sentences long as a minimum. -Use as clear and good of English as possible for you -Swearing is allowed, but use it mindfully if others. I usually only use Hell and Damn. -No Double-Posting unless it is in this discussion. -Please give a little bit of time before another posting, as others could be writing a post. Also, try to keep the speed of the RP to a medium at most. If you read the rules, tell me your actual favorite food. (Even if it’s the same) Thanks, and have fun! Spoiler: My Bios Name: Justin Hardin Gender: Male Age: 16 Sexuality: Not really interested, but could be broken... Personality: Justin is the type of guy who sits at the back of a class, even when he tries to sit closer to the teachers desk. He’s calm, but introverted, though he is able to muster up just enough courage to talk to others. When he’s hooked on a feeling, he is HOOKED on that feeling, so for example, if you make him really happy, he’ll most likely be happy for the rest of the day. He’s decently intelligent, but he can be reckless. He’s afraid of very little, but he is easily frightened. Considers himself very average. Appearance: Full light grey clothing, including sweatpants, socks, shoes, shirts, and a jacket, as well as a big black backpack, and black headphones. He has pale pinkish white skin, medium thickness dirty blond hair, and deep brown eyes. History: For his whole life, he’s thought himself to be very average. He has his own weird likes and dislikes, he acts how others act during school, he does things other people do for fun. He hasn’t ever really felt like he’s been above or below and average person, and he doesn’t know what’s yet to come. Favorite food: He likes a lot of foods, so it’s difficult to determine his favorites, but absolutely DESPISES melons. Feelings about dreams: Justin wants to believe that a place like the ones in his dreams exists, but he doesn’t put a whole lot of belief in them. About a sixteenth of his mind says that the place is real, while the rest of his mind just logically assumes his imagination is running wild. Name: King Gender: Male Age: 16 Species: Dewott Sexuality: Straight Appearance: A standard Dewott, but with a deep red and grey scarf. Personality: He tends to keeps thoughts and feelings to himself, but he gets along fine with others. He’s quick to change mood based on how everyone else is feeling, and can be pretty stand-up or understanding when others need it. History: King grew up in a smaller town in the Pokémon world. He does what he needs to, wether it be helping his parents with Berry harvests or being responsible, but a small part of him has always felt empty. Feelings towards dreams: Very defensive and secretive of them, but very interested. He wonders if this world does exist, and is most interested in the human technology.
