~No longer accepting bios~ The premise is relatively simple. The RP will take place in a small, unnamed town between Kanto and Johto, not found on any maps. A small division of Team Rocket stumbled across the town on accident following the events of the Gold and Silver games. They decide to make the town and its surrounding area their new base of operations. They quickly seize control of the town, and begin enforcing a wide variety of rules, the most important being the ban on Pokemon training outside of Team Rocket. Several years pass, and a group of young trainers grow desperate to obtain Pokemon of their own. With their small-time local professor arrested by Team Rocket, the trainers must look to the lively forest to supply them. They all sneak out into the forest, each of them lucky enough to come across a Pokemon egg of their own. What happens next? It depends on the actions of the characters! **WARNING**Depending on the way the story plays out, there may be blood. I'll refrain from some insane blood and guts, but this is Team Rocket. They rule through fear. They will do anything necessary to keep their place of power. As the group consists of new trainers, your characters must be relatively young, anywhere from 11 to 19. The town is fairly small, so it is safe to assume that our characters knew of each other. This can range from mere acquaintances to friends, family, or even lovers. Any and all relations between characters can be discussed here. Seeing as the Pokemon are found in the forest, your character may find one of the following: ~ Caterpie ~ Weedle ~ Pikachu ~ Pidgey ~ Hoothoot ~ Seedot ~ Spinarak ~ Ledyba ~ Shroomish ~ Kricketot ~ Zubat ~ Oddish ~ Paras ~ Venonat ~ Psyduck ~ Exeggcute ~ Pineco ~ Poochyena ~ Zigzagoon ~ Wurmple ~ Taillow ~ Slakoth ~ Gastly ~ Murkrow ~ Misdreavus ~ Bidoof ~ Budew ~ Buneary ~ Nincada ~ Pidove ~ Timburr ~ Tympole ~ Sewaddle ~ Venipede ~ Cottonee ~ Petilil ~ Yanma ~ Poliwag ~ Fletchling ~ Scatterbug ~ Joltik ~ Woobat You may select any of these Pokemon. I decided to extend the list beyond Johto and Kanto to add a bit more variety. It's first come, first serve, and I don't want repeat Pokemon. It's no fun if everyone has a Pikachu, for example. If you feel I missed a Pokemon, or have a Pokemon you would like to request, please message me and we can discuss it. I'm very picky about my RP'ers. I have a few rules if you would like to join. 1) Be committed! This is important. I don't plan to let this RP die again. So long as you post every few days, that's fine. I can understand that sometimes you just don't feel like posting. BUT. NO disappearing for longer than a a handful of days without giving the other RP'ers and me a heads up. 2) Post at least a paragraph per post. Obviously I'd prefer more, but one paragraph is fine. There is nothing worse, in my opinion, than an RP'er who only REACTS and doesn't ACT. It's hard to continue an RP when a character only reacts to others. Not only is it not as fun, but it makes it harder for characters to connect. 3) Good Grammar. This is a rule I WILL NOT budge on. You MUST have good grammar. Good grammar to me is what I've been doing. Not proper grammar, per say, but there are periods, quotation marks, capital letters, etc. Poor grammar is not fun to RP with, and even less fun for anyone reading along. Keep in mind, the final judge on character will be myself. Accepted: DragonFlye PrimrosePearl EspeonTheBest Spoiler: My Bio Name: Aaron Kurst Gender: Male Age: 16 Height: 5' 10" Weight: 160 pounds Hair: Dark brown, always mussed up and shaggy Eyes: Brown Clothing: Often seen wearing a worn-out green tee-shirt, with old, tattered jeans. He has no shoes, preferring to go bare foot. Identifying Marks: None Musculature: Thin, lean muscle, more on his legs than his arms Personality: Aaron is a relatively happy-go-lucky guy, preferring to always have a positive outlook on life. He's quick to make friends, and is extremely loyal. He can be overly loyal, almost to a fault, as he will do anything to help a friend. He hates being told what to do, especially by adults. He is willing to take suggestions from those he considers to be his friends, but will become grumpy and irritable if directly commanded to do something. Skills: Aaron has a fairly extensive, if basic, knowledge of Pokemon Past: Aaron's mother was one of the few trainers in town, and was the professor's assistant. Aaron loved Pokemon, even when he was a small child. He often played with his mother's Pokemon, and grew up wanting to be a professor when he got older. When the Rocket's invaded the town, Aaron's mother was one of the few who directly opposed them. Overwhelmed by their numbers, she was defeated. Nobody has seen her since. Following the loss of his mother, Aaron found happiness in the forest Pokemon. He spends much of his time with the wild Pokemon, playing with them and studying them. Family: Aya Kurst (Mother) Love Relationship: None Pokemon: Name: Buddy Species: Weedle Gender: Male Ability: Shield Dust Personality: Buddy matches Aaron's happy-go-lucky attitude with a carefree attitude of his own. It isn't often that Buddy is unhappy, though he tends to be shy around new, unfamiliar people. He trusts Aaron completely at all times, both in and out of battle.
