Pokemon: Black Infection [OOC/SU]
Welcome to a new RP of mine.
The organization known as Cipher has risen again. Only this time, they have succeeded. They created a virus from their original Shadow Pokemon plans by mutating the formerly beneficial virus called Pokerus. Now it simply turns any Pokemon who gets sick with the virus into a Shadow type with no help to the Pokemon. The leader of Cipher, who even after all these years is still unknown to everyone, began to take over the regions in the year 2011.
The year is now 2023, almost twenty years after Red’s rise as the Kanto champion. The only regions not completely taken over are the joined Kanto and Johto, as well as Hoenn. However, Hoenn is suffering greatly, its isolation leaving it easy prey as Unova had been. Cities are fenced off to avoid Shadow Pokemon rampaging through the cities. You need a Trainer Card or a specific pass if you are not a trainer, to be given permission to pass through each Route. The Elite Four of Kanto and Johto have gone to assist Hoenn’s cause, leaving the Gym Leaders the only lines of defense for the two regions. But there is only so much they can do.
This is where you come in. You are a trainer living either in Kanto or Johto about to take a trainer’s journey. However, this Is not to become Champion. These eight badges will earn you the right to limb the perilous Mt. Silver and meet Red, the man who has supposedly been on Mt. Silver since he became a Champion all those years back. Apparently, he has one of the strongest Purification Stones in existence, not to mention the power he has could turn on Cipher and defeat them. What’s the catch? Well there’s two. The first is: Red will only come down if you beat him. The second is… you’re not alone on this journey. There are others and only one of you can take on Red himself. So guess what? You’re going to have to fight each other. Here’s who you could be:
You could simply be a regular trainer, searching for the chance to be considered a master or find a way to save your home from the Shadow Pokemon. If that means beating Red, you’re ready to give it a shot at least!
You could be a trainer who is looking to join Cipher. What better way to prove you have the skill than to end Red, the best of the best? You can also stamp out those other kids who could end the reign of this organization. And you can’t just let that happen.
Each of you have your reasons for taking on this quest but you all know this: you have to be strong and endure if you want to survive Mt. Silver.
The Gym Leader roster has changed over this nineteen year period. Don’t be surprised if you see them out of their buildings. They have to protect their cities after all, and their region. Keep on the lookout! For good or bad, meet your opponents.
Pokemon and the Virus
The Shadow Virus has been infecting Pokemon all over the regions since roughly 2012. Not all Pokemon are infected, due to the fact that some Pokemon are immune to the Pokerus that it was created from. However a fair amount of wild Pokemon are infected, including babies in their eggs. If an uninfected Pokemon is caught in a Pokeball, the virus cannot affect it, the same goes to those already captured. The only way it can occur is if they are taken to a Cipher Base and it is done the old-fashioned way.
Pokemon cannot be cured from the stone in Agate and Time Flutes are nowhere to be found in any region. Oddly, strange, glowing green stones called Purify Stones have been appearing all over the world of Pokemon. When a Pokemon's heart is completely purified, the Stone responds and cleanses the Virus. They are not always one-use, but sometimes they don't last long and others their power remains strong no matter how many times it is used. Most only work on one Pokemon at a time though.
Not all Pokemon have been infected, so not every Pokemon is a Shadow Pokemon. Pokemon that appear on the routes are the ones that are known to be there. However, there will be a message on the radio that warns of a random Swarm. It is advised to avoid these unless you believe your Pokemon can take it. The Swarm Pokemon are usually about four levels higher than expected.
Pokeballs of all kinds can be used to capture like always, however, do not simply use Master Balls each time. I won’t say whether you can capture your Pokemon but I will expect decent quality. Also, you will not be able to obtain a Snag Machine, such as the ones Cipher generally uses, until your fourth badge, even if you are working to be a part of Cipher. The agents won’t believe you either.
-All PC rules apply.
-This RP is rated T for language and violence. Keep the romance clean.
-Most of this Roleplay you’re on your own. Occasionally, you may get a PM from me for something important.
-Bunnying (Unless given permission) and godmodding are naturally forbidden as are short posts unless you are talking to another roleplayer but if you battle another roleplayer please joint post it.
-Please verify all Gym Leader Teams with me before you post their battles.
-Battles with ordinary wild Pokemon gain one level, Shadow Pokemon give you two (not all are Shadow so don't try), and trainer fights add two to the winner, one to the loser. If you use more than one, it depends on who won each one-on-one match.
-Purification of Shadow Pokemon comes with one Egg Move, which I decide once you show me the Pokemon and its experience points. Purification is not mandatory but it is recommended, even for Cipher Trainers, due to the fact that there is the likelihood of the Pokemon attacking your character and your limited moveset.
-Your first Pokemon is level ten.
-All sign-ups belong in this thread, anyone who posts their sheet in the main thread will not be accepted.
-You have two chances to break these rules. On the third, you are thrown out, end of discussion.
-Be active. Enjoy yourself!

Name: Scott Burge (Wes and Micheal didn't actually have a last name, so I made one up for them.)
Hometown: Krane's Lab, Orre. Now living in New Bark Town, Johto
Appearance: Scott is about average height and weight for his age. He has dark blue eyes that are very open and friendly. His hair is brown, with some slightly red highlights. It is also very spiky looking. He keeps it loose and lets it fall over his ears and forhead, but he keeps it trimmed so it doesn't fall in his eyes. He has a small scar just above his left eye that was from an accident several years ago.
His clothing is relatively simple. He wears a black pair of jeans and a red sleeveless shirt. He has a pair of black pair of running shoes. On top of his shirt he wears a long white coat. This coat reaches the ground, and has several emblems on it. It also has an intricate green pattern on the back that resembles an eagle.
Personality: Scott is friendly and easy going. He tends to not sweat the small stuff. He has a genuine interest in helping others, and is not afraid to step up and do what he thinks is right. He has a strong sense of justice, and does not like to stand by and let things get messed up. On the whole, he doesn't get angry very often. When he's alone, he has a tendancy to brood on what has happened to him and his family. He holds a grudge against Cipher, and will destroy them at every opportunity he can.
Around pokemon, Scott is even more friendly. He loves them with all his heart, especially his Eevee. He understands that most of the time they are just doing what they are told or acting on instinct, so he doesn't get mad at them if they attack him. He hates what Cipher has done to them, and will try his best to purify every shadow pokemon he can. He pushes his own pokemon to be the best that they can be, but is quick to rest with them, and even play with them.
History: Scott is the son of Micheal, the man who took down cipher the last ime. He lived in the Krane Reseach Lab with his father and Aunt Jovi until Cipher attacked them. Micheal gave his son an Eevee and sent him and Jovi to escape while he held Cipher off with his own fierce team. Jovi and Scott got on Micheal's old hover scooter and were chased by some of the Cipher peons. Scott fell off the Scooter and his head was sliced open when he landed on the ground. Scott got back up and battled the Cipher peon and beat him, then he made his way to Agate Village.
He hid there for a time, and when he heard nothing from his father and his aunt, he feared the worst. All too soon, Cipher tracked him down and he fled again. This time he knew of only one safe place. He had to get out of Orre. He went back to the Krane Lab, to find it in shambles. Luckily for him, his grandfather's hover-cycle was still in the basement where it had been. Scott started it up and took off to Kanto. Unfortunately, He was a teerrible driver and the bike was old, and he crashed it. The bike was totally destroyed and Scott was knock out from the crash. But he was found by Professor Elm and taken to New Bark Town to recover.
Elm told Scott what had been going on in the other regions. When Scott asked him what had happened to his family, Elm couldn't tell him. He didn't know what had become of them. Scott was saddened by this, but he also grew a resentment toward Cipher. They had taken everything from him. And he was going to stop them, just like his father and grandfather had. Armed with the Shadow Scouter and his Eevee (the Snag Machine that was attached to it had broken long ago), he set out to collect the badges and meet Red.
Other: Scott has the Shadow Scouter that Micheal had in Gale of Darkness.
Starter Profile (1 only)
Infected?: Not infected
History: Eevee is descended from Micheal's eevee, who was presumably descended from Wes's Espeon and Umbreon. She was raised from an egg in the Krane Research Lab, where she met Scott and the two bonded instantly. Micheal didn't officiallygive her to Scott until Cipher attacked them, but they all knew she was going to stay with him.
Personality: Eevee is just as friendly as her trainer is. It doesn't matter whether you are a human or a pokemon. But she picks up on Scott's moods very well, and will become agressive and defensive if he is threatened.
Moves: Tackle, Sand Attack, Detect (Egg move), Shadow Ball (TM move)
Other: Eevee is shiny. :D
There! I finally got that done! It took me forever to do!
Edit: With the addition of Caelara to my team I decided to finally put my inventory here where it will be easier to find.
Nideous good work! You are accepted!
If you want a shiny you may have a Shiny Eevee :D
Awesome! Thank you! :D I'm going to add that to my SU now.
Edit: I wonder... I wonder if we'll meet the awesome disco man with his Afro that was bigger than my Espeon in Gale of Darkness. Don't tell me if we will or not. I want to be surprised if we do!
You got it! And I love Miror B! XD He was amazing in the first game.
He was awesome in the second one too! XD
Yeah but his outfit wasn't as cool. XD But he was awesome. I think I should probably play a Cipher Trainer. That one doesn't seem like it's going to get many people. XD
His awesome music more than made up for his outfit. Except the big three inch heels he was wearing. I can never forgive him for that! XD
And I'm not sure very many people would play a Cipher trainer. Especially after what they do. Oh well. It's no problem for me if no one wants to be a Cipher trainer. XO
That's true but I figured I would offer it.. I don't think anyone forgives the heels. But I do love his music
What gets me is how he is able to run and dance in them. XD
And yeah, I get what you're saying. Someone might want to be a villain and fight for Cipher. Eventually.
The heels are magic!... Or something. And there could be all reasons you were in Cipher, aside from being a jerk. Probably.
Is it to late to sign up?
Hey Crebirk! Considering that there's only me and Fuyu, not counting the reserves that have reserved, I would think not.
And as for reasons for being in Cipher, well it would have to be a good one. Scott wouldn't take too kindly to people that just wanted to join them just to be contrary. Also, I was looking at your SU. Who is Nadia? You mention her several times in the SU, but you never say who she is. Or am I missing something and Nadia and Naren are the same person? I'm so confused! XO
It just opened so nope! Come on in and sign up.
Edit: yeah that's Naren, but I originally called her Nadia. Thought I got them all. I'll fix it lol. It would have to be a good reason for sure.
oh! my bad I'll have the SU posted as an edit as soon as I'm done...
Edit:First of all I'm so sorry that i didn't respond immediately (I was mowing the lawn) second sorry for the bad SU I accidentally posted the unfinished copy instead of the final copy. I hope this one is better.(sorry about the random bolded words It wont let me fix it)
Name: Zack Avain
Hometown: Goldenrod city, Johto
Ordinary Trainer or Cipher Trainer? Cipher trainer
Appearance: Zack is oddly tall and very thin for his age. He has that rich city person look. He has light blond hair that he usually keeps short and has empty looking sky-blue eyes. Has a light tan.
Zack likes to be fancy and usually wears a black tuxedo and black jeans. He has a bright red tie. He wears a pair of black and gray running shoes.
Personality: When alone Zack is planning of ways to ruin others. He hates all Pokemon other than his own “beloved” Pokemon When around other he tries to win over confidence to make in easier to execute schemes later. He often plays cool around his enemies to agitate them.
History: Zack has a happy life growing up: his parents were rich and he could have anything he ever wanted. But this dream soon ended. At the age of nine as his parents got divorced due to a fight over money. Neither parent wanted to have the burden of a son so he was put on the street with no money and only his Ralts.
After this unfortunate event Zack had to survive by stealing food and money from other people. He got into many fights and lived in the Goldenrod tunnel for several years. He became cruel and twisted over the years and his thieving became more eventful. He was asked to join Team Cipher and promised lots of money in return. He gladly accepted the opportunity and joined.
Infected?: Not infected
History: This ralts was bread for on reason and one only: To make Zack stop “bothering his parents” for one. The ralts has been with Zack since he was five. But in its later years was used to help steal, and win street fights.
Personality: Railly doesn’t care how you are or what you do she hates you and thinks you’re useless. She is cruel and over confident about her abilities and strength. The only person she cares about is her “loving trainer”.
Moves: Shadow sneak (Egg move), Psychic(TM move), Confusion, Double Team.
Yeah. Someone like the character above me would really push Scott into fighting him. Anyways, Naren or Nadia or whoever you are, I'm looking forward to starting this when we get more people.
Edit: Also, and this may sound like I'm trying to run your RP, but I'm trying to decide if I should have Michael alive and captured by Cipher, or simply dead. Jovi is alive, and I plan to use her in the future. Mostly just to give Scott the repaired Shadow Snag Machine (The one that Profeesor Krane and the others made that can only snag Shadow pokemon in Gale of Darkness). If you don't like this, then I won't do it. But I'm just trying to think of things I can do.
Crebirk you are denied. Your SU has almost no detail and does not follow guidelines. Your grammar and spelling are also lacking. Please expand on your SU and try again if you still want to join.
Edit: It's fine Nodeous. Most of what happens in the RP is up to the players. ;) just be fair about when you give it to him.
Hmm... I figured that would happen. Anyways, Crebirk, I'm going to refer you to a pretty helpful guide on making a character. Here it is:
I used it a lot. Still do in fact. I recomend you read it and then try again, if you still want in. I will warn you, most GMs here expect a certain amount of quality from their RPers, so with SUs like that one, you probably won'y be accepted into very many RPs. That's the sad truth of the matter. :\
Edit: Don't worry. I was planning on waiting until about the fifth gym before he finally meets back up with Jovi. But I wonder if I should keep her doing that thing where she speaks in the third person all the time. :3
Nideous that would be hilarious. And crebirk it's not the best but I'll give you a chance.for now accepted.
