Default GLADIATOR [rp]


FIGHT. CONQUER. SURVIVE.
THE BATTLEGROUND IS LIVE.



C:\FILES\DOCUMENTS\THE_HISTORY.txt


In the early 1990s, a company known as SUMMIT developed a revolutionary video game known as GLADIATOR. It was the first of its kind to reach the Pokémon Universe—a game that allowed players to tap into Pokémon power and fight to the utter finish. Though revolutionary, the game was also controversial; it was the first game to feature human-to-Pokémon combat, which was frowned upon by large in society. As a result, the game was banned in many regions, including Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh. SUMMIT experienced multiple setbacks and quickly lost profit through ever-increasing opposition.

However, the company found a safe foothold in the entertainment-hungry region of Unova, where the game quickly became popular. Moving their base of operations there, SUMMIT was able to survive and recover their losses. As the years passed they continued developing their technology, releasing more games despite controversy. It would seem that they were back on the rise—that is, until Team Plasma put a hiccup in their developments. With people beginning to question their relationship with Pokémon, Unovans also began to question the violence depicted in GLADIATOR.

SUMMIT once again experienced a decline in profit. This time, however, the company seemed doomed to failure. As the Plasma conflicts came to their climax, SUMMIT quietly slipped into bankruptcy…


C:\FILES\PROGRAMS\THE RIVIVAL.exe

Years have passed since the Plasma incident, and people no longer question their relationship with Pokémon. The entertainment business in Unova boomed as previous excitements died down. As people began looking for more and more ways to preoccupy themselves, movies and particularly video games caught unexpected popularly.

Seemingly out of nowhere, SUMMIT made a sudden reappearance—and with an exhilarating new announcement: GLADIATOR was returning with a grand new adventure. The latest installment would take advantage of the most advance technology: immersive virtual reality. Players would literally be transported to the Battleground of GLADIATOR 2012. Old fans revived forgotten passions, and new fans were quickly made as the game’s features were slowly leaked. Nearly all of Unova—as well as other parts of the world—looked forward to the game’s release.

When development was coming to a close, SUMMIT’s Executive Producer Malcolm Kalsow announced a special contest. Winners would get the chance to play the game a week before the launch, and their adventures would be broadcasted live worldwide. All one had to do for to enter was record themselves playing one of the older games, and explain why they think they should be chosen.

C:\FILES\PROGRAMS\GLADIATOR2012\THE_GAME.sav

Weeks have passed since that last announcement, and the winners have been chosen. You have eagerly been waiting for some word on your entry, and on one especially bright morning you are excited to find a package from SUMMIT. Inside, you find a DVD with your name on it. Putting it in as soon as you could, you listen as an electronic female voice addresses you. The game’s logo flashes brilliantly on the screen.

“Congratulations. You have been selected to participate in the international pre-release celebration of GLADIATOR 2012. We look forward to your arrival at the SUMMIT Game Center in Nimbasa City Tuesday, November 6th. In preparation for your game, we ask that you select one Pokémon within your possession to bring with you. GLADIATOR 2012 is a revolutionary game that will implement a Link feature that allows you to connect with your Pokémon on a whole new level. More information on the game will be provided at the celebration. Stay tuned for directions and further instructions…”

With Pokémon in hand, you are now making your way to Nimbasa City to the newly constructed SUMMIT Game Center. You plan to show the world what you are made of. And yet, you have no idea what to expect…


RULES


1.) No Godmodding, please. Not everybody can be as beastly as Rinzler ;)
2.) No bunnying without permission.
3.) GLADIATOR received an ESRB rating of T for fantasy violence. Okay, just pretend. Anyways, that means I don’t want to see suggestive material or strong language.
4.) As GAME MASTER, I am in charge of everything that happens on The Grid the Battleground. That includes setting, objectives, and opponents. No inventing something that isn’t there. Also, no easy solutions. I have the last say in whether or not your tactics work. I also control all NPCs and Major Bosses. I am officially in charge of your lives. Bwahahahaha….
5.) Posts must be at least two paragraphs long (meaning it should have 10+ sentences). Posts must also show proper grammar and syntax.

Freddie Spencer
Link: Luxray


The sun shone brightly on Nimbasa that special day, when the city buzzed with more excitement than usual. Crowds were roaming down the streets, making their way to the latest hotspot in town. Some waited with eager anticipation, while others voiced their objection with near-religious fervor. This clash of wills could only be brought about by most controversial topic of the decade—the return of GLADIATOR.

Barriers had been placed around the perimeter of the infamous SUMMIT Game Center, where officials kept spectators at bay. The faculty within the ring waited patiently for the arrival of the contestants, few sporting fake Battle Armor from the game. TV crews were moving in, equipment was being tested, and the game system itself was prepped for the big show. Amongst the hustle and bustle, with people scurrying about like ants, a young man of 19 fidgeted within an empty hall.

Freddie had felt confident these past few weeks with his role in the broadcast. Only a few hours ago did his nerves finally catch up with him. As he paced circles into the marble floors, trying to dispel the jitters, a lion-like creature watched him with sharp yellow eyes. It purred contently, as if trying to calm him down.

He stopped and took a deep breath. “Today’s the big day, Leo. Everything that we’ve worked on has led up to this.”

The Luxray blinked in response. Shifting from its resting position, the Pokémon gave a great yawn as it stretched out its front paws.

“Do you got my back today, buddy?” Freddie turned to him, unaffected by the creature’s sharp fangs.

“Rrrrrrrrrrrr!” the Luxray flicked his tail, beaming at his Trainer with determination.

Freddie grinned, his excitement finally reaching its peak. “Let’s do this, Leo!”

The lion Pokémon let out an eager roar. Feeling energized, the two of them continued down the hall. They soon entered a cavernous room that was—for now—mostly empty. A large screen occupied the far wall, though currently it only showed SUMMIT’s peaked logo. Waiting for Freddie was a tall blonde woman dressed in a business suite.

“There you are, Freddie,” she greeted the moment she saw him. Without waiting for him to speak she handed him a clipboard. Leaping right into instructions, she informed him, “You will wait here for the contestants. They will arrive through the arcade room. Mark each of them off as they come in and have them fill out these release forms. Have them wait here until we’re ready in the VR room. You are not to give them any instructions until you go there—nothing about the game until we’re ready to start, got it? Have you gone over the rules we asked you to tell them? As well as the disclaimers and such?”

Freddie felt a bit overwhelmed, but he nodded, “Yes, ma’am.”

“Good,” she returned the nod approvingly. “Don’t forget to smile.”

Giving him one of her own, the woman turned and quickly strode from the room. Soon, it was just Freddie and his lion.

He took in another deep breath and muttered, “Here goes nothing.”


*****

[Television Broadcast]

“Heeeeellloooo, ladies and gentlemen!” a dazzling MC swiveled on his chair, facing the audience with a bright smile. “You’re tuned in to the live broadcast of GLADIATOR’s grand reveal! Brought to you by none other then the geniuses themselves, SUMMIT Software! I’ll be your host--Michael Kolton! We have yet to connect to the games, but as you can see…”

The screen switched to an overhead view of a crowded Nimbasa.

“The thrills and chills are already beginning as Nimbasa awaits the arrival of the lucky contest winners! Our on-site reporter, Danielle Leeson, is currently roaming the streets of Nimbasa, getting the feel of crowds. Danielle, how’s it going down there?”

A slender young woman with short brown hair flashed onto the screen, gripping her mic with obvious breathlessness. “It’s crazy out here, Michael, that’s for sure. We’ve met a wide array of fans and protestors alike. But the general feel out here is excitement. No one has received word yet of who the contestants may be, but folks are anxiously waiting to see them.”

The announcer’s image popped up next to her in a tiny square. “That’s right, SUMMIT hasn’t revealed the identity of the contest winners. It will certainly be a surprise to see who they are. Why, they could just be wandering the streets nearby.”

“That’s right,” Danielle nodded. “But we’ll keep an eye out for anyone who passed the guards at the Game Center. They’ve been told to let in only those with specific invitations. Hopefully, SUMMIT will release more information as the game commences.”

“We’ll certainly keep you updated on this end,” the announcer concluded. “For now, it’s a waiting game…”

Lucas Shutt
Link: Blaziken


It was a nice and shining day, as Lucas stepped out the door knowing that he would soon partake in the greatest game in existence.

He began running down the street towards the Nimbasa arcade. He reached the corner of the block and the first thing he saw was a massive crowd of hundreds of people shouting out at a man on a loudspeaker.

"Man, who knew the game would be so popular? This is gonna be pretty challenging!" Lucas remarked. He pulled out a small spherical item and pressed the button in the middle, and the ball then grew to twice its original size.

He tossed the ball in the air and shouted "Alright! Come on out Blaziken!". "Alright pal" He spoke to the large flaming fowl next to him "I might need you, so stay focused." Blaziken nodded and then leaped in the air and perched itself on the edge of a nearby building. Lucas then began to nonchalantly ease through the crowd of fans.

He was just about to reach the guard when he heard a man shout "Hey! He isn't a fan! He is a contestant!".

That's when the fans began to swarm him and ask how he was able to participate and what his name was. "Blaziken! Use Fire Spin and keep them away!" A small vortex of flames because to surround Lucas and caused the croud to hurry away from him to prevent sustaining injuries.

Lucas then reached the guard and they granted clearance. He walked into the giant glowing building known as the Nimbasa Arcade, where the biggest moment of his life was about to unfold. He stepped inside the large building where he noticed a sign pointing to the right. He followed the sign and was lead to another sign. He followed these signs for a few minutes and found himself inside a large room where he noticed a man standing there.

As Jacob saw the "Welcome to Nimbasa City" sign, he grabbed his bag, and jumped out of the truck he had stowed away on.

He had arrived via boat from his home town of Lilycove city in the Hoenn region, and got off the boat at Castelia city. Gladiator wasn't big in the Hoenn region. The pokemon rights groups hated it, and made sure that it was banned from Hoenn region. It was on the news, but drowned out by the news of Team Aqua and Team Magmas plots to awaken the ancient pokemon. Not many people knew about it, and Jacob saw this as his chance to redeem himself for the shocking failure he suffered in his last tournament, which almost killed his best friend Gallade.

When he arrived at Castelia City, he was going to walk to Nimbasa, but overheard a truck driver being told by his boss to take his goods to the pokemart in Nimbasa. When he knew the truck driver wasn't looking he jumped in the back, and waited. Now he was in Nimbasa city with a few hours until he was required to be at the Summit game center, so Jacob found a restaurant where he bought himself some lunch. Once he finished eating his nachos, he pulled out a pokeball, and opened it, aiming in the seat opposite. White light emerged from the pokeball, forming the shape of his best friend Gallade in the opposite seat.

"Today is the big day Gallade, the day where we prove them all wrong." Jacob said to his friend, who grunted, and nodded his head. Gallade was excited for this, the smile on his face gave it away.

"Are you sure you want to go through with this? if you are worried about your injuries, and think that they might come back, I can easily use Blaziken, Umbreon or Raichu." Jacob said pulling out a pokeball. Suddenly Gallade threw its fist at the pokeball, knocking it out of Jacob's hand. He was ready, they both knew it.

Jacob paid the bill and left the restaurant, making his way towards the Summit Game Center. The entrance was blocked by savage looking protestors, psycho fans and news crews. Knowing he wanted to avoid them, Jacob grabbed Gallade's shoulder, and told it to use Teleport. Jacob closed his eyes, and when they reopened he and Gallade where inside the entrance to the Summit Game center.

"Nice job Gallade." he said. One of the guards who had his back turned didn't know they were there, and jumped when he heard them.

"You fans disgust me! Get out!" said the guard angrily, advancing towards Jacob.

"Calm the hell down!" Jacob yelled angrily at the guard, "I am meant to be here you idiot!" He pulled out a folded piece of paper and showed the guard.

"Go through that door into the arcade and follow the signs," the guard said as Jacob began to walk, "And Jacob, have a bit of respect. It is my job to make sure those psycho protestors and fans don't tear you to pieces when you aren't looking, keep up the attitude and I may let them slip by."

"I can defend myself," Jacob said coldly, and continued walking.

"The games haven't even started, and there is already conflict. My reporters intuition is telling me that this game is going to be interesting." Jacob heard a news reporter out the front say.
"I've already got a reputation," Jacob thought, "Good."

He made his way into the arcade and followed the signs towards another door. Beyond this door was a young man, not much older than Jacob, wearing a badge, with Freddie Spencer written across it. Jacob walked towards him knowing that this was only the beginning.

Kyle Denmark
Link: Cryogonal


I took a moment to appreciate how large the crowd was. Not because I didn’t expect that many people to show up, but because I was scared of crowds. It didn’t help that this crowd was worse than a normal crowd, and huge. It was filled with not only people who supported the game, but also those who were protesting it. Knowing my luck, only those protesting it would bother to notice me.

I was frozen on the spot I stood. Luckily, nobody paid me much mind back there. It gave me a moment to think about what I could do, but all the plans I came up with were too bold for me, including just walking up to the front door.

“Oh man...” I sighed. This was terrifying.

I finally thought of a plan I could do; sneak in. I mean, I thought of that before, but it was just then I thought about how I could do it. Every building had more than one entrance, so all I had to do was use another one of them. I mean, there was probably a guard there too, and they’d probably let me in with my invitation.

I walked over to a security guard but didn’t look him in the eyes. “E-excuse me, is there, err, any other way in?”

“Sorry, contestants only,” he said, sounding slightly annoyed. I meekly held out my invitation, at which his tone changed. “I apologize. No, the only entrance is the front.”

I turned and looked at the opening in the crowd for the contestants to go through. Perfect. Nobody could miss me.

“I’ll escort you through. The fans are getting more bold,” the guard said. I accepted his offer, surprised by how kind he was being.

It didn’t take long before I wanted to go back, with only my pride keeping me going. A pride that was nearly shattered by all the remarks people made about my appearance. I can’t blame them, either. I went in a pair of black jeans with ripped up legs, a light blue hoodie that was too large for me, and a pair of purple and white boots; one had my jean leg tucked in and the other didn’t. Fortunately I wore my hoodie over my hair and had my hood up, because my hair was a mess too. I dressed like this because I was a genius.

It actually got to the point I had to get out my invitation and carry it, since they didn’t believe I was a contestant. That only caused their words to become harsher. I hated people. For every good one there were many more bad.

I don’t think my face had ever been as red as it was by the time I got into the building. It had taken all my willpower not to sic Cryogonal on that crowd. That and the fact that it seemed like a fire attack had already been used in the area recently, which made me feel better.

I thanked the guard for helping me and quietly made my way into the building, following any signs that told me where to go. The whole way I thought of things I wanted to say to the person in charge. When I got to the room, though, I couldn’t bring myself to say it, so I just took up a spot in a corner.

I couldn’t get into the game fast enough.

Name: Joseph Swift
Link: Krookodile


Joseph Swift was jogging around the Nimbasa in search of the SUMMIT building. He spots it but stops to examine the crowd. He sees the guard which almost sets of his paranoia, but he keeps himself together. He realizes that traveling through this crowd would be difficult. He decides to use his back-up plan.

He draws up the hood of his newly bought grey "I Love Nimbasa" hoodie. He reaches into the pockets and pulls out a pair of goggles and a piece of cloth. He puts the goggles on and wraps the cloth around his mouth and nose. He calls out his Krookodile. "Alex, use your sandstorm attack!" he orders.

His Krookodile unleashes a massive sandstorm on the crowd. The unfortunate guard happened to be too close as well. He casually walks alongside Alex his Krookodile. He strolls passed the "adoring", blinded, not too mention choking "fans". He looks at his new hoodie and watches its ruin. The letters on the hoodie literally being ripped off by the ferocious sand. He stands near the guard. The guard is pissed but managed to react, so he was better off than the "adoring fans". He passes his invitation to the guard. The guard manages a brief enough look at it, and waves him on in.

He steps inside with his Krookodile. The sandstorm subsides leaving a hoard of pissed yet "adoring" mob of "fans". The Alex the Krookodile looks back at the crowd apologetically. He walks out of the view of the doors and pulls of his hood. He realizes he likes his hoodie much better this way. He shakes the sand out of his hair. and empties his pockets of sand. He pulls off his goggles and the strip of cloth, and he places them back into his pockets. He quietly,"Well that worked, but that mob will probably hate me... I think you may have over-done it a little Alexandra." The Krookodile shrugged.

"I guess we should go find where we get signed in or whatever..." Joseph said. Alex nodded with her big Krookodile jaws. "This place is huge... I can't even find the bathrooms!" he continued. The Krookodile pointed. "It appears so... I probably should have named you Navigatr! Haha!" Joseph jested. The Krookodile did not catch the jest and just shrugged.

He continued walking onward through the Arcade. Alexandra followed him loyally. Luckily there were plenty of signs to follow. His paranoia began to rise. Alex knocked it back down at Joseph's expense of course. He didn't complain about it because he asked her too. The two eventually made it to a rather large lobby. He walked around unsure of what to do next or who to talk to.

"I guess I will sit over there until I am told to something else." He said. Alex nodded, followed, and occupied the seat next to him. It was strange to her how she could sit in these human chairs, but she did and didn't care to dwell on it. "Ugh... This is getting boring already!" Joseph stated. Alex nodded in agreement. He decided to talk to an important looking guy with the label "Freddie Spencer."

(OOC: If this sounds cheesey... it's because Freddie is a very cheesey character xD)





Freddie Spencer
Link: Luxray


It took all of Freddie’s self-control not to leap with joy as soon as the first contestants walked it. He kept a professional façade on even while he geeked inside, excited to finally meet the participants. As they came in, the intern wracked his memory in an effort to match the names with the faces he had seen in the SUMMIT profiles.

The first person to enter was a brown-haired boy wearing a bandana—Lucas, he guessed, who went under the pseudo-name Blaze on the GLADIATOR forum. He was accompanied by—gosh oh gosh—a Blaziken! Freddie could already imagine the power-ups the boy would get from that Pokémon.

The second winner soon made his entry; a red-headed seventeen-year-old entered the room, glanced about, and noticed Freddie immediately. The intern smiled as the contestant approached.

“Greetings!” Freddie grinned from ear to ear. “And congratulations, winners! You two must be Lucas and Jacob, am I correct? I’ll be your game guide for this show—name’s Frederick Spencer, but please, call me Freddie.”

Checking their names off his list, the intern continued, “The game’s just about ready; they just need to fine-tune a few things. In the mean time, I must ask you to sign these papers.”

Passing the two the release forms, Freddie glanced between Lucas’ Blaziken and Jacob’s Gallade. “Are these the Pokémon you plan to use, then?”

Leo the Luxray chuffed softly in an attempt to catch Freddie’s attention. Turning his attention from the first two winners, he saw another contestant enter in—one who looked like Freddie’s own age.

“Oh, welcome!” he called to the young man. “You must be… Joseph, right?”

Leo chuffed again, looking pointedly at the corner. Freddie followed his gaze in confusion, until he saw a girl hiding there.

“Hey,” he called to her. “Come on in! Are you Kylie, by chance?”

Jacob took the forms without a word, and went to a table to sign them. As he walked there he spotted a mirror and saw himself. His usually dark brown hair, was now appearing red due to the lighting in the room (OOC That sprite needs word XD)
Jacob sat at a table, and read through the forms. It was the language of lawyers, lots of big words which anybody who isnt university educated couldn't understand. "They musn't be giving us these if there isn't some danger to the game. I thought it was all Virtual Reality." Jacob thought as he attmpted to make some sense of the papers. After 5 minutes of being unable to understand it he thought, "Screw it, I didn't get this far to give up now". Not sure what he was signing, he signed the papers, and gave them to Freddie.

Jacob turned around and studied his to be friends or enemies. The person with the blaziken would be an even match against him in unarmed combat, but wouldn't cope so well against his telekinesis on the battlefield. But telekinesis doesn't heal a burn.

There was someone with a Krookodile. Jacob knew his tyoe advantages, and knew that Telekinesis would do no effect on the ground/Dark type. But he also knew that dark types where sensetive to fighters.

Then there was the luxray. Electric type. No type advantages here. All a matter of skill. This should be interesting. Hiding won't be an option, seeing as Luxray can see through objects, and those teeth look like they could do some damge.

Then there was the quiet girl in the corner. She was the only one who didn't release her pokemon. Was she keeping it as a secret weapon, so nobody could plan tactics against her like Jacob was already doing to the rest? Was she embarrassed? Maybe she just couldn't care less. Jacob decided he would find out in the battlefield.

(OOC: From this point, the rest of the group cannot hear Jacob)

Jacob went to the side of the room, as far away from the rest of the group as possible. He needed a quiet word with Gallade, away from the rest.

"Gallade, you are a psychic type, can you project images into my mind? show me what's on your mind?" he said. Gallade grunted and nodded. He looked down and closed his eyes.

Suddenly Jacob saw the battle between Gallade and Mightyena the year before from Gallade's point of view. He could hear himself shouting commands, and feel the pain of the Mightyena's fangs digging into his arm.

"Well I need your help. I need you to show me what you do when you use Telekinesis...

(OOC do the characters know what their battle armour looks like, what powers they will have etc? I will change this if they do know)

... I don't know what will happen to me in the game, but I do know there is a possibility for me to have Psychic power. But I won't know how to use it. Can you show me in my mind what happens?"

Gallade grunted and nodded again. He bowed his head and closed his eyes. Suddenly, Jacob saw from Gallade's point of view again. They were in the first battle of the tournament last year. In this memory Gallade closed his eyes. All was black, but a sparkling purple sphere. Suddenly it started rumbling, then exploded. As Gallade opened his eyes, he saw the Primape he was battling pushed away, as if a bomb exploded in front of it.

Suddenly everything dissolved, and reappeared. Jacob recognised the scene. it was his 15th birthday. Gallade was sitting next to him at the table, with a bowl of poke`food in front of him. Gallade's held its hand above the bowl, and Jacob felt the feeling of concentration again. He could feel Gallade imagining an invisible hand in front of him, which was moving the poke`food for him.

Suddenly the scene changed again. It was the battle with the Mightyena again. Jacob could hear himself panicking, and calling Gallade back, but the opposing trainer wouldn't call Mightyena off. Gallade closed his eyes for a few seconds and all was black. He felt a desire to move, and suddenly he could see the outlines of the shapes around him with his eyes closed. there was a blue sphere where he was. Gallade imagined the Sphere disappearing, and reappearing by Jacob's side. he opened his eyes and he was there. he had teleported.


Jacob opened his eyes, and smiled at Gallade.
"So thats how it works? Imagination? Imagine it move and it will?
Gallade nodded.

Jacob walked back to Freddie smiling and said "So, when do we begin?"

Name: Joeseph Swift
Link: Krookodile

Joeseph stood watching as the enigmatic and rather cheesy Freddie bounced from one contestant to another. Alex also watched from her chair. She took a moment to assess her surroundings as did Joeseph. Joeseph was surprised by Kylie in the corner. He did not see her initially. Alex took a look around and examined the Pokemon. She noted the Luxray, and she considered her ground type advantage over the electric type. She looked over and saw a Blaziken. This was slightly less exciting. Her ground type advantage would help, but she couldn't help but think back on the fighting type's advantage over her dark type. She saw a Gallade. She examined it. She knew its psychic type attacks would be useless, but it also shared a fighting type attribute. She was discouraged by these fighting type attributes. She found herself wishing she didn't have that particular disadvantage. She looked over at the girl in the corner and began contemplating all the possible pokemon this girl could use to agitate and exploit her disadvantages.

Joseph also took note of the pokemon. He decided that combat between these individuals could be less than pleasant. He did wonder what that strange girl in the corner could be considering. He wondered what Pokemon she would use. He took a look at the forms, and his paranoia began to kick in. He quickly read the language of the law. Checked the lines between the walls of text. After he was satisfied that there was nothing that he didn't understand. He signed them and handed them back to Freddie.

His Krookodile didn't notice this episode of paranoia. She was busy considering what she knew versus what her possible opponents could know. She regretted Shadow Claw. It would have no effect on the fighting type Pokemon. She had the idea of tossing a little twist into it. She also decided to tweak her sludge bomb attack just a little. She also considered possible passive assisstance.

Joseph sat back down and watched to see what Freddie would do next. In the mean time, he decided to arm wrestle Alex to see if he would finally win. He loses.

Name: Molly Jackson
Link: Porygon-Z


It was a bright and sunny morning. I'd say nice but how could you sleep with the crowd at the Arcade. Don't they know that some people are still trying to sleep or did they not get that memo. Pfft whatever.

Molly got out of bed to see the package sitting on the desk as she ripped into it like a kid on Christmas as she stuck the tape in to watch. Well not really watch she proceeded to get dressed and ready for the fun that was about to take place. "Blah, blah, blah. Come on get to the good part already." She back talked the TV as she was impatient as always. Porygon-Z or P-Z to her watched her from the laptop as it listened into what was going on.

"Finally!" Molly leaned against the bed watching the TV as the lady talked about the task at hand. After the tape finished she turned the TV off and walked over to her laptop. "Alright P-Z you ready for some fun?" The cyber Pokemon bounced around in excitement. "Looks like we've got a huge crowd to deal with but I know we'll get through it just fine." She went over to the window and looked out to see the large crowd as she shook her head.

"Alright P-Z Download." The cyber Pokemon chirped as it started to download itself and reappeared in front of Molly. She grabbed her invitation as they made their way out of the apartment and down the road. "We may have to act dare I say normal and be sneaky. But that's okay we're good at that." As they got closer she pulled a piece of ribbon from her pocket and tied it to Porygon-Z's tail to make it look like a balloon. The cyber Pokemon laughed before floating above her head to look like a balloon as they made their way up to the crowd.

"Oh great another one of those game freaks are here." One of the protesters yelled out as Molly made her way over to check things out. She stood in the crowd and faced the protesters as each side yelled at the other. "Bunch of idiots if you ask me." She said to herself as she made her way though the crowd and up to the guard and flashed her invitation. "I knew she was one of THEM!" "Oh pipe down you big baby. Not like you've got the balls to do something like this anyways."

"Now are you going to let us in or what?" She stood there with her arms on her hips looking up at him. "Yes, right this way." She rolled her eyes as she walked into the building. "Thank god we're finally through that crap." She untied the ribbon from Porygon-Z and stuffed it back into her pocket. "Nice balloon work by the way." Porygon-Z fluttered around in glee as she rubbed it's head. She then looked at the signs posted on the walls. "Let's get this over with so we can get to the fun stuff." They made their way down the halls following the signs until they reached the room that looked to hold the other contestants. They didn't seem to bother her none the least as she walked in and looked around.

Lucas Shutt
Link: Blaziken


Lucas received the waiver from the boy named Freddie and walked over to the corner, sat down, and filled it out.

Before even looking at it he glanced around to figure out what he was up against. He took mental note as he looked around. Luxray, Krookodile, Gallade... Seems like a tough crowd to beat. Lucas thought to himself I don't have a single advantage over any of these competitors... That Krookodile matches me with it's ground attribute, Gallade will give Blaziken a good fist fight hopefully, and Luxray is a tough Pokemon as it is. But what about that one girl in the corner? Not important now I guess.

He looked down at the waiver and he sighed. "Why the heck do we need to even sign this? I mean we should know the consequences of survival everyday..." Lucas said boringly. He looked through that waiver, Blah Blah Blah, he finally got to the end and signed the paper.

He stood up and stretched out his legs, then looked to Blaziken. "Alright pal! All our training has lead up to this moment. I will need every bit of strength you can give me... Even though I will be the one to battle."

He walked back over to Freddie and gave him the waiver, took a deep breath, and smiled.

Nicole "Nikki" Eelayo
Jolteon

It was a sunny morning in Nimbasa City, Unova, as a woman with platinum, black-tipped hair calmly strolled the bustling streets - pokeball in hand as she whistled a quiet and familiar tune. She wore dashing black sunglasses as her choppy hair trickled here and there framing her light face. Mobs of people were rushing with Pokemon, posters, and picket-signs towards the infamous Nimbasa Arcade. Such fond memories for this gal' - not. Sighing and recollecting thoughts of the past she flicked her wrist and released the electric beauty that slumbered in the small sphere - her prized Jolteon, Lightning. The woman cooed, raising her shades and pushing them into her hair, lowering herself to stroke her magnificent Pokemon, "Hey there, sweetie, are you up for this?" She smiled as the Jolteon shook his fur, beaming a bright and electric smile, "Joooooolt~"

"Perfect," the woman smiled giving a sly wink to the Jolteon, "now let's get going. And remember-" she spoke, raising herself up and flipping her sunglasses back down, "you're on protecting duty." She chuckled as the Jolteon nodded, his spikes prickling up. The woman turned towards a corner in the wall nearest to her and flipped open a cellphone she plucked from her pocket. It wasn't anything special, just a standard flip-phone. She brushed through messages and pictures until she found what she needed - a picture of her invitation and where she needed to be.

Our dearest winner, Nicole Eelayo, we humbly welcome you to try out our newest breakthrough - GLADIATOR!

Nicole, or Nikki rather, glanced through the small picture once more before sighing through her teeth and pushing her cellphone back in her right pocket, "Alright, it's game-time, Lightning."

As the two strolled down the street, reaching the edge of the mob Nikki clicked her tongue and glanced at Lightning. The Jolteon purred and brushed against her stocking letting her know he was ready. Flashing a quick grin the two entered the mob. She could hear screams from fans, pestering protesters, and, of course, the neverending newscasters rambling about the controversy, excitement, etc. The noises were getting to Nikki - luckily the entrance was close-by, sadly though it was occupied by protesters. Nikki raised an eyebrow and bit her bottom lip, "Damnit - I didn't want to draw attention..." She growled, Lightning overhearing and reacting to her frustration by prickling his fur even further out. Nikki glanced and saw his agitation, "Alright boy, you know what to do. Throw out a few fireworks to clear the path then meet at the entrance, okay?" She whispered, leaning over to inform Lightning of the plan. He nodded obediently and scurried a few feet ahead inbetween a few people and began unleashing a flurry of electrical Pin Missles. Screaming and cursing could be heard and cries of "NOT AGAIN" were rushing through the crowd. Nikki took this time to push and rush pass the pedestrians giving out a giggle to the chaos, 'Did this happen before? I certainly hope no one else has a Jolteon. My Lightning is the only one for this game...' She thought hurrying to the door to only be pushed back by the guards.

"Excuse me?" Nikki piped, Lightning hurrying to her side.

"Get back, troublemaker. Our contestants don't need the likes of you to be ruining SUMMIT's groundbreaking day!" The taller guard barked, pushing her back with his baton, slowly placing a hand on a pokeball equipped on his utility belt.

Nikki gave off an obvious glare through her sunglasses, "Oh, really? Well, mister, I AM a contestant!" She roared, hearing a sudden hushing behind her as people began passing the news around. 'Snap...' She thought with a gulp feeling an intense nervous sting in her chest. It reminded her of her school-days. Quickly, Nikki pulled out the slightly bent invitation and showed the guard, "Let me in!" She snapped in a hurry, glancing back at the incoming crowd.

The guard nodded after observing the SUMMIT letters. The other two guards opened the doors as Nikki and Lightning rushed through hearing shouts and cries from behind her. She could hear the guards releasing their Pokemon to back them off as the doors barred shut. Nikki panted, her hair trickling over her sunglasses as sweat trickled down her face and onto her Jolteon just beneath her. Lightning shoot his fur from her sweat and gingerly licked her face, cooing as he nuzzed her sunglasses into her hair so he can see her eyes. He cooed, waiting for Nikki to calm down.

Nikki gulped, placed a hand on her chest and stood properly, patting her spiked friend, "I'm sorry, Lightning... I'll calm down, I promise." She whispered, flashing Lightning a grin. Lightning nodded and the two began their trek down the hall following the signs that lead them into a specific room she needed to be in, "Here goes nothing -" she muttered, opening the door to reveal a flurry of (more like a few) trainers - or, people because not all of them were trainers obviously. Nikki put on a poker face and strolled into the giant room followed by her partner, Lightning. 'This is definitely the start of a new chapter... I hope I'm ready.'

Jingka Givrali
Link: Shift the Rotom


In a tree just shy above the commotion sat a rather enigmatic female. She sat quietly, swinging her legs back and forth, letting her half open, blue eyes scan the large crowd. Looking at those within the masses of human beings and a few Pokémon dotted here and there while excitement brewed over them. Nimbasa was always a bustling city of energy but it seemed there was even more here; clashing against each other of positive and negative intentions, Jingka noticed the small group of picketers mostly to the right side of the crowd. It didn’t look like a large group at all, some may have left out of frustration or had gotten into a bit too much trouble. Amongst them, on the other side she spotted pairs of people with cameras and microphones. Reporters they were, probably hungry as a starved Mandibuzz for any kind of information as to what was going on.

“Well I think it’s better to deal with the repulsion side than the drawing in side.” Jingka said quietly, seemingly to no one at all. “What do you say Shift?”

Sparks appeared behind her, a jolt of electricity arcing towards the phone held on her waist. It wiggled a bit before becoming quiet, signaling Jingka to jump from her branch and make her way towards the somewhat less pleasant group of protestors. She quietly moved passed people, not having to ask people to move over just a bit too often. The ambiance changed from excited to blunt as picket signs became more clearly visible. Jingka came closer and closer to the entrance, seemingly going right for it when someone stopped her.

“Hey! You can’t go through us!” A man yelled at her. “We’re protesting here, we can’t just let you walk through!”

Jingka acted surprised. “Oh you’re with the protest group? Excellent I was wondering if I would be able to speak with your organizer.”

The man seemed off put, and a bit temperamental. “We aren’t talking to no reporters that are going to screw us over with their selective, out of context quoting.”

Jingka concluded that this gentleman didn’t like much of what he watched on tv, and was a man for all the details, however wasn’t so keen on noticing them about other people. She figured she could use this to her advantage, especially as another female walked up behind the first man, looking over Jingka carefully.

“As Greg said, no reporters. We don’t want you putting our message and ‘mistranslating it’.”

“Forgive me but as you can see, I have no camera, no microphone, nothing of the sort.” Jingka explained. “I however noticed you were all confined over in this area and was wondering, for the sake of my own curiosity, are there not more of you?”

The female gave Jingka a questionable look. “Some were sick or bailed because they were afraid of getting thrown into the slammer for a day. Not like we were planning on doing anything of the such. What’s it to you? You protesting this awful thing too?”

“You could say that.” Jingka answered. “As you numbers are few and you seem very adamant on making a silent statement, from a distance, I noticed that your condensed group looks a bit smaller off to one side. I was wondering if I could offer a suggestion to make yourselves look like a much larger group of people, and in turn, appear as if more people are against this form of entertainment, without having to prove it to the reporters and news broadcasters with words?”

Jingka had a few of the protestors attention, not only the gentleman known as Greg, but the female, and a few more of the younger picketers. The woman looked at her suspiciously before muttering a few things to her associates. “Yeah alright, we’re listening.”

“Wonderful, thank you for your time.” She nodded. “Now as I see many of you have large signs. Spreading them out amongst the larger crowd would give the illusion to camera crews that you are a much larger force, and that would give SUMMIT some bad media no?”

“You have a point.”

“Also should something go wrong, you’re thinned out, harder to nab in case of an emergency.” Jingka continued. “I’m sure you all have some form of cellular communication among the majority of you.”

“We do…and you make a good plan stranger.” The woman told her, nodding along with her points. “However that one guard next to the entrance keeps hassling us if we so much as move in a large group.”

Jingka looked, noticing a rather large, older man in a heavy set who looked incredibly unimpressed and glared at anyone who so much as looked at him funny. The female knew what to do. “Leave him to me, I can be quite the conversationalist. I’ll keep him distracted while you move into the crowd more.”

“Thanks, we appreciate it.”

As the crowd left, Jingka made her way towards the disgruntled guard, who was quick to start tapping his baton in the palm of his hand. Showing no fear, Jingka knew she could get in this way, without the protestors thinking anything of her being an actual BETA tester. The guard, who was a foot or taller than her, and stared down at her, trying to be intimidating.

“No one gets beyond this point, especially none of you protestors.”

Jingka was going to make this quick and simple. “First off, if height is your only tool you assume to use to try and intimidate me; you must not have that much confidence in yourself. Using your baton to try and clear me away would only result in you committing aggravated assault as I did nothing of the sort to provoke you. Should you have a medical condition barring you from such a charge, you would not be working in the position you are in now. Moving on, I am not a protestor, and just because I speak with one does not make me as such. I doubt that logic works for if you spoke to a criminal, which would make you a criminal.” Jingka slipped her invitation in sight, and quickly put it away. “Now if you are concluded with your assumptions and your failed attempts at looking threatening, I believe I am required to enter the structure that is directly behind you.”

The guard mumbled gibberish, wondering who this girl was and why she just broke down his mental state in a matter of a few seconds. Smiling a bit, Jingka entered the building, passing the arcade and entering in where a few other individuals with their Pokémon were waiting, some filling out forms, and some just arriving as she was. Jingka entered quietly, not making a sound and finding a wall to lean against. She observed the people and their Pokémon, noting that there shouldn’t be a problem if some form of player versus player scenario came up. Electric types seemed to be the popular choice for a game, which made sense to Jingka. However, her type was not chosen based on his electric typing, but his ghost typing.

She remained quiet, as Jingka wasn’t one to start conversations.

Kyle Denmark
Link: Cryogonal


I found nothing special about the little speech that the employee--Freddie Spencer--uttered. I actually found it to be a bit preemptive that he spoke it when there were only three contestants in the room.

The other two were named Lucas and Jacob. I wasn’t sure which was which, but guessed that their names were presented in the order they entered the room. The one that would be Lucas had a Blaziken, and Jacob had a Gallade. This didn’t bode well for my ice-typing.

Not long after presenting the forms we had to sign, Freddie was alerted to the arrival of a new contestant by his Luxray. This new contestant’s name was Joseph, apparently, and he had a Krookodile. That put me in a bit of a better mood.

While I was being relieved over the arrival of something I could beat, the Luxray alerted Freddie to me as well.

“Hey,” Freddie called to me, causing me to jump. “Come in! Are you Kylie, by chance?”

Kylie? I liked the name Kylie, because it reminded me that with just one letter my name could be girly. Unfortunately, I then remembered that my name did not contain that one letter, and it probably never would. That reminder made me feel a bit worse than before. As I took a form from him I was frowning.

“It’s Kyle, actually...” I said under my breath.

I didn’t give him time to respond. I sulked over to an empty table, sat down cross-legged on top of it and skimmed through the form. I wasn’t really paying much attention to it. I did notice the warnings about injuries, though. I found this to be incredibly silly, because it was just virtual reality.

I took a moment to consider the possibility that it was dangerous, or maybe even real. It was absurd, but I wasn’t going to rule it out immediately. Crazier things have happened in recent history. That didn’t deter me, though. I wasn’t scared of getting a few bruises.

I paused before I signed my name to consider putting Kylie instead of Kyle. In the end I decided to stick with Kyle because all putting Kylie down would do would be cause a minor confusion that would delay my major goal of getting in the game as quickly as possible.

After handing the form in I took back my perch on the table and looked at the Luxury Ball containing my Cryogonal, Frostbite. I didn’t really care who the other contestants were. None of them were strong or weak against me.
