I've been thinking this up for a year. Will it work, or not? Give me some enhancing ideas, tips, an advice if you find it interesting but needing a few touch ups. Here's our plot On a mysterious island bordering the region of Hoenn, lies a factory of battle and war. This place, called the Battalion Infantry, is deviously known for it's huge colluseum, but more importantly, the pokemon that are challenged within. Like the mysterious "Shadow Pokemon" That invaded not long ago, these creatures are factory proccessed, their DNA edited to the satisfaction of their creators. Unlike them, their brute strength and ruthless attitudes are contained within the factory, used solely for entertainment and challenge. Sadly, this sort of entertainment not like the enjoyment of a regular battle, but a negative influence, a fight to the death that shoves these ruthless beasts to the edge of brutality; and must kill to survive. Nowadays, the Infantry's Administration has decided to send upon invitations to favorited trainers across the world, challenging them to their powerful pokemon. Little would these trainers know the defeat their partners would face. Nor the pain and suffering their opponent would face..every day. With this alteration of the Battalion Pokemon, there is many differences. Each species is usually larger than their natural form, with strange marks to brand their creators; Stripes, spots, and different colorations. But their most notable features are the great plates of armor that some wear to show their dominance aswell as for protection, and their ruthless personalities. To rank their dominance of the adminstration, members have a single pokemon of a certain type; Types such as Normal and Ghost types are considered at lowest level, including beginners and liabilities Those of the more middle class have types such as fire, grass, ground, water, etc. Those of the highest and are Alphas of the Adminstration have pokemon of Dragon, Dark, Steel, and Psychic Types. This is the Battalion Infantry. Care to challenge us? So here's the plan You can either be your trainer character, a member of the Infantry Adminstration, or a pokemon belonging to the Infantry. You CANNOT be an Alpha member if you are a member of the adminstration. If you are a regular trainer, capturing a Battalion Pokemon would be considered prohibited, as their powers and attitude would consiquence the trainer heavily. You CANNOT be a pokemon belonging to the alphas, as they are the strongest and most ruthless of the Infantry. Your pokemon will NOT be forced to the death if you are a trainer or Infantry member, as such Gladiator battles are put for those who are not assigned trainers. UPDATE: Because translations aswell as an english release has yet to come, 5th Generation are PROHIBITED. Once the games have been released, discussion over allowing 5th Gen pokemon in the roleplay may begin. The difference between Battalion and Regular Battalion pokemon are much larger and have atleast one move that is unique to the factory, much like shadow pokemon. Battalions have a color unique to brand their origin, different from regulars and even shinies. Battalions are less docile and rarely show kindness to others accept some affection for their assigned Infantry trainers. With these differences, weaknesses are: Battalions have shorter life spans due to their factory-generated DNA Battalions have one more weakness than regulars, a defect in their DNA; Example, a battalion Sableye would have a weakness while a regular one would have none Battalions are prone to rage can severely injure or even kill others, even to some of the most trusted of infantry members, usually resulting in defection, a term for a battalion pokemon that is uthenized and then dissolved within a high-intoxication tube. So..whatcha think?
