POKéMON- synchronicity
Rated T for probably something.
OOC found here


They say that for every soul there is another
perfectly in sync.

Soulmates, they're called.

Be it friends, lovers, eniemies,
they are connected
by fate's chain.


- - THE STORY - -

In 24 hours exactly this year's Pokemon Grand Tournament, the most popular tournament in all of the Pokemon World, is going to begin. Every year thousands of people tune in to watch the three week long competition, with each year having a new location, new faces, and new rules. But this year you aren't watching. You are in the Pokemon Grand Tournament.

You just arrived at the stadium complex, on Thayla Island, off the coast of the Sinnoh region, your three competing Pokemon with you, but very little else. Upon entering the island you were given a rulebook, and a pass for your room, but what interests you most right now is the complex itself. The building is amazing, a colossal stadium with four housing areas, one on each side, as well as a buildings for audience housing back away from the main. All around are people, be it competitors, viewers, performance acts, or vendors, and from the mouths of some come rumours about this year's ruleset.

Instead of one on one battles, trainers have been paired off into teams, even having to share a room for the next three weeks. It's a part of, this year's sponsor, the Veilstone Corporation's chosen theme: Legends of the Sinnoh Region. The teams are supposed to represent balance and the ability to work in perfect unison as the divine Pokemon of legend did.

You've got a lot ahead of you, even more than you think. In 24 hours the tournament is going to begin, and you and your partner are going to discover that you're more connected than just through being paired up at random. You are linked by fate.
You can communicate to each other with just a thought, and may even start to develop more powers as the bond between you and your partner grows.

But something is wrong here, and as the hours progress it will become more and more evident to you. But in order to solve this mystery and maybe even win the tournament you're going to have to work together with your partner and battle in perfect synchronicity.


- - THE ISLAND - -
Spoiler:
This island is named Thayla Island after the owner of Veilstone Corporation, who bought the island fifteen years ago. The Veilstone Stadium takes up most of the island, as do the venues listed here:

Island Admission
Spoiler:
Island Admission checks the items carried by anyone entering the island and makes sure that all registered tournament contestants arrive and are housed. Island Admission will be closed after the tournament starts until it ends.


Housing
Spoiler:
There is a large housing area for the audience behind the main stadium that overlooks the sea. It has no theme, unlike the four Competitor Housings.

The four housing areas for contestants are located on all four sides of the arena. These are called, Space, Time, Creation, and Distortion, and are themed after the four divine legends they are named for.



Front Lawn
Spoiler:
This is the area in front of the stadium complex. Performances unrelated to the main competition sometimes occur out here, and there are many vendors selling various merchandise.


The Beach
Spoiler:
There is a beach on the western island. There are chairs set up, and some vendors venture out far enough to sell their goods on the beach. The water is cold and rough however, so swimming is not advised.

- - RP RULES AND MECHANICS - -

These are the actual rules that RPers must follow:

- - All PC rules apply. Every last one.
- - No god-modding.
- - Ask before bunnying.
- - You may write a joint post with your partner if you so choose.
- - Your partner will be random. However, you can request to change partners if you and your partner cannot RP together well. (Time zone problems, for example.)
- - You may break tournament rules IC if you discuss it with me first.
- - You may encounter Pokemon, but not catch them.
- - If you aren't sure about something ask me. I don't bite.
- - I'll make any important or disputed judgments. (outcome of matches, plot things, etc.)
- - Even if you lose in the tournament you can still be important to the plot.
- - NPCs will be added to their respective hoses as they come into importance.
- - We're going to be operation on a system of days and nights (ex. Day one will be followed by Night One.)

Also, although Arceus is supposed to be more powerful that the other three legendaries, they are being regarded as equal in this RP. So hopefully no-one will pitch a fit about Creation.


- - THE BEGINNING - -

- - Day One

Well now that you're here you might as well look around. You have 24 hours of free time to get acquainted with the island and the people on it (though it's advised that you sleep at some during those hours). Your first priority should probably be to go find your partner, and settle in your room, but that's all up to you. Nobody will stop you from doing something else, unless that something is illegal or against the rules, that is.

Today no special events are going on until tonight. Most of the vendors are setting up, and would probably prefer not to be bothered. The weather is nice though, so the beach is a place you may want to check out if you decide to explore.

- - Meet your partner
- - Check in to your room in your assigned house
