RP Link Dear Applicant, Hello, my name is Professor Cypress, and I'm running a lab in the Kanto Region. After earning my degree in the studies of Pokemon, I've taken it upon myself to start up my research lab in Viridian City. Which is where you come in, after thoroughly looking through your papers, I've decided that you will be one of my research assistants. You will be working alongside a team of other applicants, and your work will primarily involve field research. I hope that working together will help us grasp a better understanding of this fascinating world we live in. I hope to see you soon! Sincerely, Joseph Cypress ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< Hello and welcome to the world of Roleplaying! My name is PyroGaleZX, but people affectionately refer to me as Pyro. This site is inhabited by people we call roleplayers, for some roleplaying is a hobby, for others, it's an escape from reality, and some just want to ruin other people's lives... In all seriousness, this is an RP, as you can see. I'll be doing a quick rundown of this RP in an- OOC, 4th Wall, whatever you wanna call it- explanation. The primary goal of this is not to be the very best like everyone kinda wants. Instead, it's going to consist mostly of Professor Cypress requesting aid from people to help him research Pokemon, with travels occurring and spanning across the different regions (much like the current anime). However, that doesn't mean that there will be no battling... you never know what could happen. Note! There's going to be a Group Discord to keep track of characters and discuss topics about the RP, so Discord is kind of a requirement. ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< Rules (Yes you have to read them!) 1. Follow the BASIC Pokecharms rules!! 2. Do not harass the other RPers, EVER!!! 3. Discord is required 4. No Z-Moves or Z-Rings to start 5. No Dynamax Bands to start 6. If you have Mega Evolution, with permission from an official staff admin of Pokecharms!!! You may use it, once again only if an admin of the site gives the green light. 7. Characters are allowed to start with one Pokemon, and it must be of relative power (No Salamences or Dragonites at the very start). 8. There is going to be a limited amount of open spots 9. Background checks will be done on people, based on their RP experience: what characters tend to be, how the people interact with the other RPers, and if they would logically fit. 10. Bonus Points to whoever gives their Pokemon a background story. 11. Game mechanics aren't the same as the real deal, levels (as described in the games) do not exist! (There is one exception made to this rule, and that is Rule 12) 12. Pokemon can only use 4 moves per battle. 13. When in a battle with someone, don't always be perfect at dodging, Pokemon have their limits and can run out of energy and get tired. No Deus Ex Machinas either! 14. Enjoy yourself in the end. ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< Character Sheets *Name: *Age: *Gender: *Personality: Background: *Appearance: *They applying to work with Professor Cypress because...

He's kind and loves to help, however he can be a bit of an airhead at times, not understanding what repercussions some of his actions may be. Background: He comes from a long line of Pokemon Trainers, his grandfather had won three Kanto League Championships before retiring as a trainer, this was of course after many many long years of training. His father also was considered a great trainer after he traveled across the world participating in any championships he could, because of that there's a whole case of badges and trophies that his dad has from all his years around the world. His mother was also a well-recognized trainer, winning two Grand Festivals due to her ability to adapt to her opponent's battling styles during battle, this carried over into her Gym Challenge as she used those skills to earn her eight Kanto Badges, she retired as a trainer after falling in love with his father in the Indigo League Finals a few years ago. Due to his lineage, Jason is pressured into becoming a well-renowned trainer as his parents were, this led to his parents catching and beginning to train a Pokemon for him to make sure he had the best start as a trainer. However Jason doesn't want to be like his parents, while he does enjoy battling, he prefers to learn about the lore behind different Pokemon, he's most fascinated with Legendary Pokemon, his dream is to battle a Legendary Pokemon someday, however, he doubts that it will happen. Appearance: Jason has dirty blond hair and green eyes, he wears a black shirt underneath his red track jacket, typically with black track pants. He keeps a green bag with him to carry stuff like Pokeballs, a few potions, food, his laptop, and one notebook. They applying to work with Professor Cypress because they want to learn all they can about Pokemon, as well as believing that working alongside a trained professional in researching Pokemon will be their best chance at meeting a Legendary Pokemon.

Pokemon Sheet Species: Indeedee Gender: Male Nickname: Hart Form: N/A Ability: Synchronize Known Moves: Psybeam, Energy Ball, Protect, Helping Hand Background: Hart was originally imported alongside a female Indeedee from the Galar Region. While the female cared for Jason as a child, the male, Hart, was used to care for Jason's parent's Pokemon, while also being trained and taught how to battle. Jason was given Indeedee as his first Pokemon because of how much time it had spent around the stronger Pokemon, Jason's parents believed that with so much time it would help in even training Jason's future Pokemon.
