RP Thread Here: https://pokecharms.com/threads/the-land-of-lata.21276/#post-781597 [Credits go to @misterhipster for inspiring a lot of this] Lata is a very rural region, because of the rocky terrain and mountains. There is a lot of wildlife between each civilization, since the residents here care deeply about preserving nature. Professor Cherry has her lab in Rusticus Town, where trainers can receive any starter Pokemon from any region. Rules: -All Pokecharms RP rules apply -Your character can be a trainer or a Gym Leader, just ask me before becoming a Gym Leader -This is my first time creating an RP and I welcome advice and tips, please share your ideas! -All Pokemon are available for you to use, with the exception of legendaries -I love romance so that's fine, please nothing further than kissing Now, for the cities and towns! Magnificum City- The biggest and most populated city of Lata. It's a very popular tourist location, thanks to it being near Novus Falls. The gym leader is Ella, who specializes in Fairy types. Amica City- A very cheerful city, best known for Pokemon Contests. The people are friendly and love to spread rumors about the nearby Aqua Lake. The gym here is Water-type and run by Sarah. Furorem City- A city best known for its history of crime and evil. Today, criminals still run the area, and it's rumored that a certain evil organization holds their base here. Xetro's Dark-type gym is located here. Perditus City- A hidden city deep in the the Venenum Forest. It's tricky to find on foot, but easy to find in the sky. The people here are mysterious and keep to themselves. Georgina holds her Flying-type gym here. Neveis City- This city lies on top of Mount Lapis, and is chilly year-round. It's always covered in snow, except in summer. Of course, a vacant gym is here as well. Rusticus Town- A very rural and unpopulated town, which happens to be near great farming land by the coast. The place has quite a few famous bakeries, and a Psychic-type gym run by Brian. Calidi Town- This town was built on the side of Mount Magna. The people are proud to tell any visitors who will listen that their town has been standing longer than any other. Georgie, the Fire-type specialist, owns the gym in this town. Libertas Town- An unusual town that resides in a cave inside Mount Lapis. A special nutrient provides energy for plants and mushrooms that causes them to glow in the dark. Angie, the Gym Leader, specializes in Grass-types. Other Landmarks: Novus Falls- Waterfalls that crash down the side of Mt. Lapis near Magnificum City. When the sunlight hits them in the morning, dazzling rainbows are created that can be seen from the city. Mt. Magna- A volcano that has been dormant for hundreds of years, and it is believed that it won't ever erupt again. Fire-types live around and in it, as it still holds quite a bit of heat. Calidi Town is built on it. Mt. Lapis- A higher peak than Mt. Magna, and a much colder one as well. The rocks are special to the mountain and create the nutrient that makes plant life glow inside the caves. Neveis City lies on top, and Libertas Town inside a cave. Aqua Lake- It is said that this lake was once the spot of an ancient city, but it was flooded and became this lake. Nobody has found any evidence of this yet, but the stories have always been passed down. It’s close to Amica City Antiquorem Lake- Many different fossils are constantly found at the bottom of this lake. Scientists and archaeologists are here very often in hopes of finding more fossils. This lake is near Furorem City. Venenum Forest- A foggy and dense forest, which is filled with Poison-type Pokemon. It’s difficult to navigate and spooky at night, so trainers only ever come here to get to Perditus City. Character Sheets!
