Long ago the regions now known as Kanto and Johto were one - Rokto. they were ruled by a single, wicked man and his many beast slaves. Lord Katashi sought to control all the pokémon of the land and render his opponents powerless. He began by capturing powerful monsters from across the kingdoms, using trickery, lies and deceit to lure them to his dungeons. His collection slowly grew, as did his power over the other people of Rokto. However, although he had the most powerful monsters in his possession, they would not obey his commands.
One day he awoke to a formidable trembling, the mountains around his castle quivering as if with fear. His four, most powerful monsters had burst from their chains, causing chaos and destruction around the mad king's fortress. All his slaves, both pokémon and human, had been freed. His rage knew no bounds, with one piercing scream he pulled out his final trump card.
"Mewtwo! I command you!" He screamed, the purple pokémon's eyes sparking into consciousness as he cast a haze of psychic energy across the mountain tops. The rebelling pokémon stopped, subdued, their free will gone and their thoughts washed away. They had become true slaves.
Lord Katashi sat upon the throne of Mt Silver for twelve, long years. He slowly built up his forces, corrupting his pokémon and taking further prisoners - his reach extending out across the entire region of Rokto. The kingdoms cowered in the shadows of Mt Silver, isolating themselves and hoping they would not be the next target of Katashi's onslaught. Hoping for a hero to emerge.
You are an important member of your Kingdom, perhaps a royal, a knight or a mercenary. You have been selected by your nation to unite with heroes of other lands to fight back against Lord Katashi and his hoards of psychic, dark and fighting pokémon. Free you land and take back the region!
Your character personality does not, necessarily, have to fit the ideals of your home kingdom. However, it must dictate the type of pokémon your character is partnered with. In this roleplay, human-characters are also permitted to fight, whether hand by hand or using swords, etc. You may wish to take this in to consideration when thinking about your pokémon partner and how they can work together as a team.
If you wish to be a member of the royal family; you may either fill the role of one of the blank (???) spaces below, or write for an 'extended family' member. Typically this would include cousins, nephews or nieces.
