1. –Storyline-

Trainers have gone missing for the past few years. All the disappearances occurred in the area around Azalea Forest. Rumors buzz that these young people were abducted by Pokemon, but research has denied any connection with Pokémon. The world is shocked at first, but thinks of it as foolish country talk.

Meanwhile, all the missing Trainers have been stuck in limbo for the past 6 years. Suddenly, they find themselves in a dark cave. They use flash to see, but when they do, torches ignite everywhere.

They're now standing on a giant plateau with a staircase leading down. Suddenly, a TV screen slides out of the ground in front of them.

"Welcome, mortals. Welcome to the quest of your lives. I'm your host, but you won't know who I am, until you successfully complete all my wacky objectives. This cave is filled with wild Pokémon, itching to attack you.

It's completely up to you whether you want to team up, or not. Remember, in the end, only three of you can escape from here.

However, for some lucky contestants there might be some extra prices. If you can find the creature of the week, you'll win yourself a bonus point. If you collect 3 bonus points, you can challenge one of your fellow trainers to a dual. If you win, you get to skip a few objectives. If you lose, you'll suffer the marks of my humor. Have fun."

I’ll admit it. It’s a bit on the thin side, but thickening the basic would only spoil the rest of the surprise. Besides, I plan to use the same storyline but with tweaks if the RP proofs to be successful.

2. - The actual RP -

This is a URPG only RP, so you have to be a member of the URPG to take part in this RP.

Everyone who wants to take part in this will and must sign up with the form presented further down. If you are approved, you will be placed in the current week. There will be no back tracking, example: doing something that had to be done last week in the mission statements; more on this later. From here on out, you will embark on your RP venture through the cave to either catch the Pokémon you want or be the best and first RPer to fulfill the bimonthly goal.

The main goal is to have fun and acquire as much Pokémon as you want to, but there is a catch. Nothing comes free in this world, and this RP isn’t an exception to that. In here you will sometimes face unfair challenges and tough objectives. Think twice before actually making a challenge or taking on an objective, because there are penalties involved if you lose or don’t complete a mission. No one’s going to force you to accept anything, but if you want to dive into the adventure, it is highly recommended.

I can only say: read on and sign up.


3. – Rules -

3.1 General RP rules.
Limit the power of your character: You can’t be an almighty person who can see in the future and thus avoid any obstacles in life. This isn’t just going to happen.
Quality post: This isn’t just to keep the thread readable. If you write crappy one sentence posts each time, it’ll take you until kingdom come to get even one catch. Decent description and decent grammar/spelling will be a big help. Use MS Word to help yourself check for length and errors.
Be sure that each post is descriptive, and helps move the plot along. Whenever an RP is in a bind, help it by posting. Also, enable yourself to not be ‘stuck’, and try not to slow down the Role Play, unless otherwise directed. Be sure that each post has a point, and will ultimately better the game.
Smilies and excessive foul language: I don’t hate smilies, but it is advised not to use them in character. If you want to depict a characters feeling use words, even if pictures equal a thousand words. As for cursing and such, well, people tend to swear during bad moments, but keep it to an agreeable minimum. Just slide in a couple of letters in it or use a similar sounding word: ‘phunk’ instead of the ‘f-word’, and ‘gray’ instead of ‘gay’.
Bunnying: You can not take over another RPer’s character. You can take over NPC’s, though these have limitations too. For instance, you can’t RP what an NPC on the other side of the cave is doing, unless it directly affects/effects you. However, bunnying is allowed in some circumstances without consent of the bunny.

3.2 Main rules
Activity: It is recommended to be active and post at least once every 2-3 days. This way, you’ll prevent losing the chance to catch the Pokémon you wanted.
Attitude: You should act responsible and civil to everyone, and also to the people grading your catch. They’ve been chosen for a reason, and not showing the proper manners will result in penalties. Normal URPG rules apply for these situations. If you’ve got a problem with one of the staff members, PM a moderator AND the staff member in question.
Asking: If you want to ask a staff member to either check something in your RP post or something involving the plot and it’s a general interesting question , don’t use the ‘OOC:’ to ask your question, but instead use ‘GQ:’ in bold letters. Thank you.

Note: Thanks to Echo for doing this.

4.3 What happens next.
If you are accepted, you will be given three (3) additional, randomly chosen Pokémon. So your total amount of Pokémon will be six (6). They are not for keeps; they are RP only. You will also be given 10 RP points to spend on TMs or extra options; more on this later. If you think you’re ready, then you may step into the RP, and attempt to do something. As a side note, new members can challenge already progressed RPers, but it can not be done the other way. We don’t want to lose everyone on the first go.


5. – Missions –

5.1 Weekly missions. - biweekly if activity/interest drops.
The staff will devise weekly missions using the terrain or suddenly teleported down foes. These can range from following a map, given by a staff member, toward a hidden treasure to battling a dangerous Pokemon, which can’t be captured by the way. Doing these missions is completely voluntarily, but worth a great amount of points. Considering that these are weekly, they won’t be that hard to complete. However, these won’t be one-post-completed missions. You’ll have to work for them. Points range from 5-10, depending on amount of good quality posts and originality.

5.2 Monthly missions.
These are missions that last for a month. They are difficult, long, and require reasonable RP skills. You can do a weekly mission during a Monthly one, but you have to side track to complete the weekly ones. Monthly missions are like betraying another member in your team, you have to interact a lot, hence why it is a monthly mission, or defeating three (3) RPers in a RP battle. Points for a successful mission will range from 10 – 25, depending on originality and effectiveness.

5.3 Main mission.
The main mission of this RP is bimonthly or quarterly. This will depend each time, but you can safely assume that it’ll be hard as hell. The goals will be similar to this: Catch three (3) Pokémon, of which one rare. Defeat 5 trainers and complete all the missions for weeks # 1, 2, 4. These are examples. The person who finishes first will get 3 of his RP Pokémon as a prize along with their TM’s; second will get 2 Pokémon with TM’s; third place will receive one of his RP Pokemon without any TM’s.

5.4 Penalties
If you took a weekly or a monthly challenge without completing it thoroughly, you will be fined. These can range from point reduction to permanently stripping away one of your six (6) Pokémon. The severity depends on how badly you messed up. Generally it’ll stay with point reduction and losing one of the Pokémon for a week. Breaking a rule will also be punished like this, or with the general URPG rules.

6. – The Pokémon –

6.1 Weekly Pokémon – earns 5-10 points if caught
Each week the inside of the cave will change form. Seeing as how it's not realistically possible to change the field within an entire cave without alerting any bystanders, the RPers will be teleported to a different play field. Two (2) randomly chosen species of Pokémon will be presented each week. These are Pokémon within these tiers:

Very Common: Caterpie, Weedle, Pidgey, Rattata, Zubat, Poliwag, Machop, Geodude, Krabby, Goldeen, Magikarp, Sentret, Hoothoot, Pichu, Mareep, Hoppip, Sunkern, Wooper, Snubbull, Poochyena, Zigzagoon, Wurmple, Taillow, Wingull, Azurill, Skitty, Numel, Barboach, Baltoy, Spheal

Common: Spearow, Ekans, Sandshrew, Nidoran F, Nidoran M, Oddish, Venonat, Meowth, Bellsprout, Tentacool, Doduo, Seel, Grimer, Shellder, Drowzee, Horsea, Ledyba, Spinarak, Chinchou, Cleffa, Iglybuff, Pineco, Teddiursa, Slugma, Swinub, Phanpy, Smoochum, Magby, Elekid, Lotad, Seedot, Surskit, Nincada, Whismur, Makuhita, Aron, Meditite, Electrike, Gulpin, Carvanha, Wailmer, Spoink, Trapinch, Cacnea, Swablu, Shuppet, Duskull, Wynaut, Clamperl, Corphish


Note: Thanks to Echo for doing this.

6.2 Biweekly Pokémon – earns 10-20 points if caught
These are Pokémon that require a certain objective to be reached. To get these rather exceptional species, you’ll need to have successfully completed the week mission of the first week, before you can attempt to catch this Pokémon. There will only be one (1) specie availably each two weeks, so watch for your favorite one. The species will be within this tier:

Medium Rare: Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charmander, Vulpix, Paras, Diglett, Mankey, Growlithe, Abra, Ponyta, Slowpoke, Magnemite, Gastly, Onix, Voltorb, Exeggcute, Koffing, Rhyhorn, Staryu, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Togepi, Natu, Remoraid, Houndour, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Ralts, Shroomish, Slakoth, Lileep, Anorith, Snorunt


Note: Thanks to Echo for doing this.

6.3. Monthly Pokémon – earns 20-30 points if caught
They work similar to the biweekly ones, but these require 3 week mission before you can catch them. In contrast with the previous types, there will be only one (1) individual Pokémon available due to its rareness. This also means that RPers might end up fighting over it. Basically, the one with the best posts ends up battling it. To make this as fair as possible, three different staff members have to agree who gets it. These tiers:

Rare: Cubone, Scyther, Eevee, Porygon, Omanyte, Dratini, Kabuto, Tyrogue, Larvitar, Bagon, Metang, Lapras
Really Rare: Feebas, Chansey, Aerodactyl, Snorlax, Porygon

Note: Thanks to Echo for doing this.

6.4 Capturing.
Once you qualify for capturing a Pokémon, you have four (4) weeks to do so. Within these four weeks, you’ll have to search for it. This can take a moment or a week, depending on the rareness. Afterwards, you need to contact a ref. The battle will have the following rules:

1vs3
RSE/GSC
Gameboy - the ref will roll for the wild Pokémon’s move set. The RPer has to send his 4 moves to the ref prior to the battle.
Items are optional.
No Sleep Clause.
No Self-destruct Clause
Random terrain if needed.

If you successfully KO the wild Pokémon, it isn’t yours yet. You then have to RP out the battle, so saving the log would be very recommendable. A staff member will finally step up, look at the RP posts relevant and tell you whether it’s a capture or not.

Note: If you just try your best, give or take a few mistakes, you’ll have a 95% chance to catch it at first try.

Sadly, if you fail, you have the chance to look back and add a couple of posts or chance the bad points until the four weeks are over. After that, the mon will return free. So, think ahead if you want to catch that special one out there.

6.5 Bonus
If you catch a Pokémon, be careful for the added bonuses handed out by the staff members. They might be interesting.

6.6 Penalties
There are none.


7. – How to customize –

7.1 Currency.
Your RP points are interchangeable with URPG money. So the more you earn by RPing, the more you can spend in the Pokémart on your RP mons. The exchange rate will be 1 RP point = $ 1,000. So three (3) RP points will get you one (1) TM Swords Dance, while ten (10) RP points will be enough to get one (1) TM Protect.

7.2 Items
You can’t buy just anything from the Pokémart. The only things allowed are:

- TMs
- HMs
- Recovery Items
- Type modifiers

It goes without saying that you can only use these within the RP.

7.3 Penalties.
If you are caught using illegal money, you will be severely punished.


8. – How to battle. –

8.1 Before challenging.
You need at least 5 points before you can challenge an opponent. RPers who have been in this RP for a while can not challenge any member active for less than 2 weeks. After this period of time, anyone’s fair game. Challenging someone costs 5 RP points.

8.2 Challenge
The challenge has to be made public, giving a staff member time to cancel it; silence means approval so then find a ref. All battles must be held on AIM.
Basic rules are: 2vs2~4vs4, RSE/Col/Stad/GSC. (Gameboy can be turned on.)
Additional rules can be extra rules like DU’s Celadon City Gym rules. Auto-sunlight to use Chlorophyll, and Sleep Clause disabled so more than one Pokémon can be put to sleep. Whatever the challenger can think of that will work advantageous.
A bonus rule is whether you want to use your own Pokémon. However, this must be agreed upon along with your opponent.

8.3 Penalties
If the challenger loses his unfairly set battle, penalties will be issued by a staff member. Judging by the Pokémon used and the rules, these can range from point reduction to permanently stripping away one of your six (6) Pokémon. The severity depends on how badly you messed up. Generally it’ll stay with point reduction and losing one of the Pokémon for a week. Breaking a URPG rule will also be punished like this, or with the general URPG rules.
However, nothing happens if the one being challenged loses. It has to stay reasonably fair

8.4 Prizes
If the challenger wins, a prize will be awarded. Judged by the strenght and unfairness of the rules, prize can be anything up to skipping a weekly mission to finishing several requirements for a monthly one. There is a down side to this all, though. If you skip a mission, you will not receive any RP points for it, so in the end you'll have to RP some more to get those TM's you wanted. Why battle then? Cause neat bonuses may be handed out at the end of battles to both winner and loser, and also skipping a requirement for that super rare Pokemon's always a good thing.


9. – Inactivity –

9.1 What is inactivity?
Inactivity is holding up the RP without a good reason with your absence. Inactivity is like a bullet popping out of a gun barrel for RPs. It can slow everything down or even kill it completely. Thus, if someone’s inactive for awhile, they will be pulled out of the RP for a while.

9.2 Actions
If you become inactive during a week, your group can bunny you with limitations. They can not capture a Pokémon with or for you.
If you stay inactive, your fellow group members won't find you in their midst the next Monday.
If you know that you'll be inactive for a period of time, contact a staff member and you'll be teleported out.
If you want back in, you can choose whether you pop up next to your friends, but expect some interactivity to explain your whereabouts, or you can just get back to your friends on your own, meaning you'll be flying solo for a while.


10. – Final notes –

10.1 Staff members.
All Moderators and Co-Officials.
All RP officials.

10.2 RP officials.
Don’t ask to be one. You’ll get picked if you show above decent RP skills.

Bronislav
Finch
Marth
rust
Tyranitar Trainer

10.3 Questions and such
If you have questions, contact either a staff member through PM. Though, if they can’t answer it, contact DU by either PM or AIM email address.

10.4 Copyright and other stuff.
Copyright 2006 DU.
Special thanks to Ball for giving good suggestions.
This RP can only be used on PE2K or wherever the URPG is located rightfully.

Name: Zacharias Saints, commonly nicknamed as Zac.

Appearance: Zach is the typical description of a field scientist: His skin is tanned on his face, lower legs and hands, but when he takes off his shirt, it looks as if he had a white shirt engraved on his chest, which is actually a transparent-like skin. His golden hair sprouts from under his cap in spikey formations, and his short-but-muscled complexion is great for collecting scientific material in the woods of Azalea. His blue eyes seem to glow behind his rim-less glasses. Zac prefers baggy shorts and t-shirts for daily research.

Personality: Zac is outgoing, and always speaks his mind. He's not scared of anything that may seem gross for others, he's a field scientist and acts like one. He'll always speak in an objective way, never letting his own feelings into his words but in rare ocasions.

History: Zac is the eldest son of Professor Daniel Saints, an expert in genome-codifying based on the substance that remains in the eggs of breeding pokémon. When his father died in his 14th birthday, Zac became a teenager with no emotions, and became obsessed with completing his fathers' research.
The abduction happened when Zac was recollecting a sample from a Kakuna cocoon. His assistant in the recolection of samples, Taylor, was the first one to note his dissapearance, and thus informed the media about it


Pokémon: Hoot-Hoot, Ralts, Treecko.

Name: Kentansu Ryuitsma

Appearance: Kentansu has light brown skin, covering his entire body. *Obvious :tongue: * He has black hair that is combed down and reaches a inch of the top of his head onto his forhead. He has brown eytes that shortly stretch across his face, due to where he was born [See History]. He also has a black T-shirt that is tight on him, the sleaves come down to hisbieceps and triceps, also the shirt pulls down to his ***** area. He has blue jeanes that have small rips in them, from where he worked in them.

Personality: Kentansu is a lowner, he cares for no body, not even himself, he only has one goal in life, and that is to become the greatest pokemon trainer.

History: Kentansu was born in Manuvlie Town, in the time of the great pokemon war, when team Aqua gained controll over Rikou and attacked the city with blast of lightning and thunder. His mother was one night in the pokemon center, when it was hit by a thunder, thus killing her, and all the others inside of there. That night Kentansu ran and fled to Kanto, where he started a new life, a life of a orthen, in the Viridian Forest, which is where he captured his first pokemon, Spinarak.

Pokémon: Spinarak [Shinu], Staryu [Exnata] and Charmander [Intasuma]

Name: Tokotu Naniga

Appearance: Tokotu is lightly tanned. His hair is a light blonde, almost white; his eyes are a deep blue and contain some serious depth when you look into them. He is underweight, but not by alot, though all of his clothes look big on him. He wears a simple white T-shirt with a pair of black shorts. The shorts are slightly big on him, so he wears a belt to hold them up on his slim hips. His shoes are worn, but still retain there white and red coloring.

Personality: Tokotu is shy around people he never knew, though he loves being in nature with wild Pokemon. You can tell when he's shy, because he often contains a light red tint in his cheeks, and some people may mistaken it for being angry or flustered.

History: Tokotu was always slim, though he often was taller than a kid for his age. He had a small group of friends that often support him when he gets into battles. He lived with his mother and father and his younger brother; his older brother left when he was seven, and preparing to become to go to a Pokemon Acadamy. His love for nature made him an excellent Pokemon Trainer.

Pokémon: Eevee, Absol, and Hoothoot

Name: Josh / Todd / Jarod
Note: Multiple Personalities

Appearance:

Josh: When he is 'Josh', he wears baggy khaki jeans held up by a belt with a pokeball in the center. In this stage he wears a cap backwards to cover his hair, and is always with his sunglasses either on his cap or on his face. His T-Shirts tend to vary from hoodies to shirts with catchy or funny sayings on them, and he has a tattoo of Princess Peach on his right arm, the product of a bet with his friends. When the boy is 'Josh,' his eyes tend to be a darker blue, and the green in his eyes tends to stand out more. He also prefers to wear his silver and white shoes as opposed to sandals.

Todd: When the same boy is 'Todd', he likes to wear dressier clothes, his most casual being regular fit blue jeans. Usually however, he is found in khakis and sandals and shirts with collars. When the boy is 'Todd,' his eyes are a much brighter blue, and the green is barely noticeable. He covers up the tattoo whenever possible, with anything from shirts to bandaids. His hair is a strange silver, which is what happened when Josh tried to dye their hair.

Jarod: Jarod, the master personality, likes to baggy blue jeans or basketball shorts, depending on the weather. He wears just about any shirt that the other two will wear, and he will also wear sandals or shoes. The green in his eyes really stand out, the blue becoming more of a secondary color. He covers up Princess Peach with an armband, which range from having Mario on them to just plain bands. He wears a hat forewards, tilting the whole hat up somewhat.

Personality:

Josh: Josh is the more laid back of the two, a very social and easy going guy. He also tends to be cocky, and rushes into things without really thinking about it or a plan. However, he thinks quickly on his feet, and will try things that Todd wouldn't even dream of doing. He respects Todd, and follows his other halves' plan as much as possible.

Todd: Todd is a shy kid who usually keeps to himself whenever possible. It's not that he doesn't like to talk, it's that he, as he puts it, 'doesn't have the pokeballs to do it.' He is much smarter then the average kid, sometimes called an evil genius by those who go against him. He always thinks things through before attacking, and he likes to stay back and have others do things for him whenever possible. He is a bit in awe of how Josh is, and the two get along very well most of the time.

Jarod: Jarod is the master personality, so he has traits of both. He likes to go out and have fun, but he also uses his mind. He is rarely seen, because he is hiding from the world in the back of his mind.

History: Josh and Todd used to be known by one name, Jarod. However, Jarod had a little problem. He tended to like to party, but he was also in all of the hard classes that he could take. This meant that he would be out partying, come home late, and not do his homework. In the morning he would freak out because he didn't do his homework, and hastily try to complete it. The split happened one day when Jarod partied a little too hard the night before and did not get up for school the next day, and happened to miss an ACT test. The stress caused a rift in Jarod's mind, which created two personalities to deal with it. Josh, who can go out and party with the best, then in the morning when it is time for school Todd can take over and get all the school grades up with relative ease.

The three in one were captured when Josh was walking home from a rather long party one night, no one but a HootHoot even seeing what took place.

Pokémon:
1) Oddish (Herb)
2) Eevee (Papa Sanchez)
3) Mudkip (MudPie)

Name: Geoff Reynolds (Don't know what that is in Japanese. Lolz. Geoffoichi.)

Appearance:
Around six feet tall and quite skinny, Geoff is really an average looking young man. He wears a khaki polo shirt which is emblaoned with Azalea's Gym emblem, and loose stone shorts. His hair is long, black and a little greasy, lying on his shoulders and framing his good cheekbones perfectly. Two cool grey eyes leer from behind aviator sunglasses which he only takes off in the dark. His forearms and lower legs are covered in scratch-like scars which he got from crawling around in the bushes with Leigh.

Personality:
Laid-back to a fault, Geoff is so unlike his brother it's unimaginable. Whereas Leigh is always pushing things to the back of his mind and running away from confrontation, Geoff is forthright and a little over-confident. Some would see him as arrogant and disregard his words as harsh or abrasive, but his true friends know that he's only speaking his mind. In reality, Geoff is warm-hearted and kind in nature.

History:
Geoff (16) was in a friendly Pokemon battle with his younger brother, Leigh (15), when it happened. They always used to play in the Ilex forest, capturing and battling together. His Absol had been knocked back pretty hard by Leigh's Nidorino and into a thorn bush. In the darkness of the night neither Geoff nor Leigh could see a thing, and it wasn't until Leigh called out his brother's name that he realised he was gone.

Pokémon: Oddish, Solrock, Absol

I've never really RPed, but there's a first time for everything, I suppose.

Name: Keith Abaddon

Appearance: Keith is a quite slim, but yet muscular person. The muscles are emphasized by the fairly tight clothes he wears; sleeveless shirts and the like. Keith was born with an unnatural hair color, gray. With dark brown eyes and shortish, gray hair, Keith's facial appearance in quite intriguing. Yes, Keith could be a real heartbreaker, but being raised in an almost isolated forest village, he never got a real chance to get a wife with his looks. Other notable features about him would be his fairly sharp nose and formidable abdominal muscles.

Personality: You could stand right next to Keith without even noticing him. Keith is a silent and calm person and when he is around, you won't notice him unless he speaks. It's almost impossible to anger him, thus he is good at debating without losing his temper. Keith can remain cool in most situations, but he has a mild claustrophobia, which sometimes causes him problems.

History: Keith's parents named Keith after the surroundings he was born around, a woodland. The Abaddon family had been around for almost seven generations, living in the same village, which had now grown a little due to some forest indsutry nearby, which employed most of the villagers. He was raised to respect nature and the ways to adapt to it, making him an ideal hunter. Keith never got any proper education, but that doesn't mean that he would be stupid. He self-taught himself when he had freetime. His interests were in symbology, history, pokemonology and psychology. By using the books of his past family members, he grew up to know more than enough of these subjects.

Keith left his village at the age of 21 and made his way to the nearby city of Azalea. Here found a job, a dangerous job that is, which will remain secreted for a while. With the money he has made from the occupation, he has entered quite a few illegal Pokemon tournaments and has been quite successful in most of them.

Pokémon: Zubat, Shuppet (in the right tier?) and Absol

Well, I'll be pretty much inactive from here on out. You might catch me on AIM sometimes, but don't bet on it.

Have fun with the RP, y'all.

What? So... who's doing the RP?! Did DU name anyone to lead when he left?

He gave the suggested leader of the RP in the second post, so one of those five may have to take control of this...

Well, not one of the five.

Yeah, I snuck on.

Either way, Jack would have to ask Ryan to create either an own RP board for the URPG, or stuff it in the Story Board as a sub board. That way, the RP and sign up thread can be stickied, while all the additional challenges/profile pages/ battles can be stuffed as normal threads.

Ohh... okay. And I think a seperate forum would be a little much, but if it's needed, then it would work...

The thing would be, that if Bron ever gets the Park done, it could go in the same board. Meh, Lep said he was too busy with other stuff at the moment, so I'm actually wondering, if this will ever get started up.

Well, I hope it does, since this would give me something better to do in the URPG...

Name: Christine Haynes
Appearance: She’s awfully short for a twelve year old at 4”8. Despite her height, she’s somewhat overweight—138 lbs. She gets her thick, coffee-colored hair from her mother, and has same colored eyes. Normally, she wears a white tanktop and jeans. You can’t really notice the extra weight on Christine—she hides it beneath her clothes.
Personality: Quick-tempered and sometimes foolish, Christine will butt in whenever she gets the chance. She hates being excluded for her age/height, so she puts a LOT of time and effort into training her Pokemon. Christine doesn’t really care about paying the price for her actions, as long as it’s nothing too extreme.

She likes to be alone, and doesn’t take it very well when other people disagree with her. Other than that, she pretty much distances herself from the regular crowd.

History: Christine was born on March 18th, and it took her five years to start talking. She was homeschooled by her mother, which is why her social skills are very poor. Growing up in Azalea offered more peace, and it was overpopulated like Goldenrod.

When she turned nine, she went to public school, but had to be taken out for her deficient behavior. This didn’t bother her in the least—it was at that age she started raising Pokemon. Her first Pokemon was a Spinarak, and, from traveling to Hoenn caught a Seedot and Ralts.

Pokémon: Spinarak, Seedot, Ralts.
Link: Pending. :P

I think we covered the interest quite well since 9 members actually signed up here. Jack, could you actually publically state what your further plans are with this RP?

Yeah, I'm provocing.

I'm not doing anything with it. Only to occasionally watch it and make sure it doesn't get out of hand. So really, it's you guys who are working on it and you can start when you want.

Not too sure about a separate sub-board. I don't think it's needed.

Okay, I'll try to have done the talking and stuff by this weekend, so we can start fresh on Monday.
