Wow, you guys are all so morbid.

Adelle is just the average trainer I guess. She's grown up with a trainer for a father, so she cares for them. But the only way of catching she knows of is by weakening it and throwing a ball at it. d:

EDIT: So, there are no Hoothoots in this route, are there? D:

You and me both. xD Cy has never had one of his own, but his life has been around them so he also has an attachment of sorts to Pokemon. I'm sure Cy'd be plenty shocked from how a few people have been acting towards his beloved creatures. 8D

Well... There might be worse coming from her, especially when she meets her parents again. xD But yeah, I noticed that too - none of our characters are really....nice. Or at least, I don't think so. :P

I would think not. Most of us are on the first route with a few of us reaching Cherrygrove. We've barely started. :D

I'm like Tim Burton but with creatures you catch in metal balls. :3

Since you didn't catch anything on Route 29, you can go back and catch one.

Of course! Just send in your SU and you'll get Tyrogue. Oh, and I've seen how you post. Exempt for RP Sample.

UPDATES!

@King -

Shakes one time.... two times.... three times.... ping!

IT'S DEAD.

Congratulations! You got yourself a(n):


Spinarak


Insect/Dark, Lv. 3

'Quito Pinch: Insect Type; The user bites down on the foe just enough to break the skin. Doesn't do much damage, but there is a chance of posioning the opponet.
String Shot: Insect Type; The user shoots a thin but strong silk-like string. It doesn't do any damage, but the string is durable and sticky; so put it to good use to give you the upper hand.

Did you know Spinarak was portrayed as a purple creature in Gold/Silver even though its concept art always depicted it as green?

THE MORE YOU KNOW <3

Anywho. I wnoder where the first contest hall is. I can't wait to have Tyler blow everyone that enters away with his superior talent and intelligence. :D

MECHANICS

+ THE FIRST STEPS INTO A BRAND NEW WORLD +

Welcome to the New World, a brilliant and vast country somewhere on the edge of the Pocket Monsters universe. Here, many headstrong trainers are raised or arrive via boat to find their true calling - whether that be collecting gym badges, participating in contests or festivals, helping sleuth out villainous individuals that may cause harm to others, or just getting a well-suited job and training your monsters to explore the fabulous new cities and locales of this region. Whatever your desire in life, the New World aims to grant it. It's been said that it was founded on a wish made by the mythical monster Jirachi itself!

The game is played out in a "Storyline" participated by the whole server as to not restrict the creativity of their life aspirations; any new players may jump in at any time after their account is authenticated. Each "Chapter" provides a Main Quest and smaller free-form quests that will activate at the beginning or midway through the Chapter, and will accommodate and change based on user participation, their influence, and what courses of action they take.

The environment, computing decisions, and characters not already controlled by other players or moderators will be controlled by the Mainframe, the main AI acting through THIS player account! All decisions made by the Mainframe are rather permanent, however. If you have any pressing questions or concerns, either ask them through the server's CHATROOM or send a private message to the Mainframe's account - it will be forwarded to an active administrator.

+ PLAYING THE GAME +

You're bound to face many different challenges along the way, but before each one commences you'll be brought to an EVENT SCREEN. Essentially before anything is about to happen story-wise to you, you'll be taken to a special screen detailing the circumstances you're in and the consequences thereof.

For example, engaging in any kind of battle will pose an EVENT SCREEN detailing the trainer you're facing, their monsters and associated information, and the subsequent "consequences" of winning or losing the fight. Likewise, story or random events will also be shown in this way, where the character must immediately react to a certain posed situation and then yield the consequences of their actions within. Some events will require an exact amount of "Saves," as to slip in challenges between them.

If you're about to battle and the trainer's sprite on the EVENT SCREEN looks like a Silhouette, don't worry! This is not any sort of malfunction. It is simply a spot for a interpretive trainer battle, and you get to "choose" the trainer! Through your actions and relationships within the story, this set battle can be against any non-player controlled character in the game.

A variant of the EVENT SCREEN is the LOCATION SCREEN, where an uncovered location will be discussed. Any important quest markers, local interests, and available monsters will be listed in there and be accessible via the MAP page for reading.

If that was a whole lot to take in for you kids, please feel free to view an [example] we've made. May luck follow you, wherever you go!
<WINENDINE?> so i literally broke everything on my way to do this but
<WINENDINE?> i was able to reset the server to chapter one to buy us time
<TRAINWRECK> GUYS I WAS CHECKING THROUGH OLD MODERATOR PROFILES
<TRAINWRECK> AND ONE WAS SO BROKEN IT POPPED UP A MAP EDITOR
<TRAINWRECK> If we keep overwriting the same map and couple of routes ...
<MUSH_ROOMY> We can keep all the threatening players in a contained area!
<MUSH_ROOMY> This is the first time I've ever had faith in you.
GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF

+ HAVE UP TO TWO CHARACTERS! +

You, as the player of this online roleplaying game, will create a character that will traverse this extraordinary landscape! When you sign up, please write a short backstory and personality for your character so that we can know how to better tailor your experience and challenge them!

Each player account is permitted up to (two) save files. These can either be used to create two separate characters to play through the world with or to give your first character a travelling companion! A companion will be subjected to all the same rules as a regular player would in the game and can help you along your journey, making those afternoon outings a little less lonely! Their monsters are completely randomized in the beginning. If you feel like starting out alone and would rather get one later in the game, you can always make them any time you'd like!

+ YOUR BOX OF TRINKETS +

Every character present in the game is equipped with an intriguing Game Boy-like device. It acts as many different useful things like an Encyclopedia of Monsters, a working mobile phone with instant messaging features, a digital notepad, a clock, a status screen monitoring your monsters, and a radio player! This item should always be kept in your ITEMS pocket.

But if you're hankering for room you do have (five) slots total to keep any item you desire on your person. Every item you find or might want to carry on you takes up one slot: this includes secretpotions, capsule balls, a bike, and any other item you might think of needing. Several shops around the country will provide many different selections to choose from - find a grouping that best suits your play style!

+ ADVENTURE LOGS AND GAME SYNC +

We here at Nintendo love to hear about your journeys! So with a process called "Game Sync," the public will be able to see a travel log posted onto your server's [Home Page]. It's sort of like a personalized novelization of what you do in the game between saving. So, as such, these "logs" or "posts" will be officially called "Saves." Some, if not most challenges require you use an exact amount of Saves to accomplish certain tasks so your adventure log doesn't overload your server and we can keep providing this service.
<MUSH_ROOMY> What, exactly, is this "autoexec" thing you guys keep mentioning ??
<TRAINWRECK> So basically...Pocket Monsters is a dead game, right? No one plays it anymore...
<MUSH_ROOMY> Its a bit freaky then to see the abandoned save files playing themselves.
<TRAINWRECK> The game is so corrupted now...the internal coding is smashing into each other
<TRAINWRECK> Unintentionally creating strings of semi-functional code...
<WINENDINE?> it created this "auto-execution" process that infected old player accounts
<MUSH_ROOMY> Essentially, bringing them to life ?
<WINENDINE?> the electricsoldier codes will activate upon beating the storyline
<WINENDINE?> but the characters wouldnt know any better than to not pursue their goals
<MUSH_ROOMY> Why don't just delete the player accounts themselves ??
<TRAINWRECK> I tried doing that yesterday...I actually FRIED a school computer
<TRAINWRECK> Like it made a bunch of high-pitched noises and then caught ablaze...
<TRAINWRECK> I owe a lot of money now...
<WINENDINE?> if the game glitches on you hard enough you can always log-out
<WINENDINE?> but the log-out function wont work for these infected autoexec characters
<WINENDINE?> if they glitch out too hard they'll essentially be killed
<MUSH_ROOMY> Sounds like our best bet.
A WILD POCKET MONSTER APPEARS!

+ PARTY CAPACITY AND WILD CAPTURE +

As in the portable games, you are allotted (three) party slots total for monsters! They will be your trusted companions as you traverse the many towns and cities of the New World. Because of the massive amount of features in the game, there is no provided box system to store additional monsters. You are not granted the ability to outright release any of them unless you Wonder Trade it away or capture another monster in the wild and have all your party slots full, where you'll be prompted to release one. If you choose not to, the filled monster's ball will be added into your ITEMS pocket and be unusable for battles. Capturing new monsters is as simple as going out, encountering the monster, and weakening it until you're ready to throw a capsule ball! The Mainframe will decide if you've captured it or if any other strange occurrences are caused by your attempt!

[THE WONDER TRADE!]

The Wonder Trade feature is obviously the best part of the game, though! Instead of drudging through your journey to catch 'em all alone, not only can you swap monsters instantly and wherever you are, you can choose to randomly trade with people from all over the world! The only restriction is that you carry your newly obtained monster for at least (two) Saves, as to prevent massive overload of the system. Besides, give your new friend a chance to bond with you!
<MUSH_ROOMY> Okay, I said yesterday I was able to get into the trading system and control it.
<MUSH_ROOMY> But understand this is the most broken and haphazardly made code I've ever seen.
<MUSH_ROOMY> It's the digital version of a malnourished man ripped apart by a bear.
<WINENDINE?> what
<MUSH_ROOMY> Nevermind. Point is,
<MUSH_ROOMY> "Wonder Trade" will sporadically trade any monster in your party at any time.
<MUSH_ROOMY> For sometimes even nothing.
<MUSH_ROOMY> My control only goes so far as the creation kit your Gears friend made.
[PERKS]

Through rigorous beta testing, we discovered some people abused our service and traded less than desirable monsters in hopes that they would reap the benefits of all those honest trainers sending out good ones! That isn’t fair to anyone! To combat this, our go-getting team of educated computer scientists have created "Perks." When a Monster is submitted into the Wonder Trade, it is analyzed and given a special “perk" - an additional ability that will help you on your travels! Pocket Monsters don't function just as your fighting companions any longer!
<危険なGEARS1> OKay So !
<危険なGEARS1> I deleted every single perk that existed before I got herE
<危険なGEARS1> AnD replaCed them with ones that will make your adventure -- shall I say ... ?
<危険なGEARS1> a bit more dangeroUS?!
<危険なGEARS1> Pocket Monsters are your only means of survival and play in this game
<危険なGEARS1> I thought it would be AWeSOmE if they had these terrible hindering PErks
<危険なGEARS1> to give y'all a challenge ;3
[RANKINGS]

The Mainframe judges the might of each individual monster and ascribes it a “ranking.” What that means is, the more it’s groomed and participates in battles - the higher its ranking becomes! Higher-ranking monsters will tend to have better moves, more endurance, and possibly evolve into stronger versions of their species!

Facing a monster of a particular rank will always cost a certain percentage of HP to be lost even when you win the battle or the opponent is caught. If only one monster faces the opponent, they’ll take all of the damage. But if you switch out monsters during a battle with one, they’ll share the damage! The exact HP lost by each monster is to the discretion of the Mainframe. If you engage in a battle and do not have enough HP to clear the challenge, you automatically lose.


45% health capacity
Depletes 10% of health upon win

60% health capacity
Depletes 20% of health upon win

75% health capacity
Depletes 30% of health upon win

90% health capacity
Depletes 40% of health upon win

100% health capacity
Depletes 50% of health upon win
<MUSH_ROOMY> This listing fails to mention the "LEGEND" Rank.
<MUSH_ROOMY> Which is exclusive to high-level NPCs and unobtainable “legendary” monsters.
<MUSH_ROOMY> Fighting one depletes 100% of health upon winning.
[TYPES]

Below is a list of the many different abilities a pocket monster can possess. What kind best suits your battle style? Every monster has a dual-typing that gives them access to two specific kinds of powers. The same species can vary in type, too! Many can come in different combinations so that you can find one that fits your party perfectly.
<WINENDINE?> i kind of broke this
<WINENDINE?> each species are supposed to have a small range to vary from
<WINENDINE?> and I deleted some kind of filter
<WINENDINE?> a select few might carry a type they weren’t supposed to have

Monsters who've unlocked the hidden potential of the soul and have command of the subconscious mind, ethereal world, and the cold vastness of space.


These monsters have mastered the mortal element. They have complete control of the tangible, physical energies that root from their primal instincts.

Whether filtered or unpurified, these monsters are typically found around watery areas ready to soak any opponent who crosses their path!


If you can shield your eyes from their shining brilliance, you’ll notice their astounding aptitude to bend light rays and even create lightning!

Because of their oneness with the rigid side of the planet, you’ll need some strong attacks to pierce through their defenses!


Magic does exist after all! The kinds of extraordinary powers these monsters wield feels like it came straight out of a fairytale book!

Watch out for trainers using this type of monster – the boundless powers of the earth are unlimited, and these ones find use in the ecosystem itself!


Tough fighters who've perfected the art of manipulating the airwaves. They’re have niche talents that might give you the edge in battle!

These odd creatures have the remarkable talent for changing the climate and surrounding temperature to their liking. Watch out for a strange battle!


There’s some bad blood running through these guys! They can utilize all kinds of dastardly energies ranging from disease to pure darkness itself!

A type of monster that’s well-adapted to the domesticated world with a variety of interesting moves – some of these critters are even artificial!


<TRAINWRECK> Broken moves or monsters that cause strange or unintended effects. This type leaked into the system through corrupted data.
<MUSH_ROOMY> This unspecified twelfth glitch type is running around.
<TRAINWRECK> I added it to the chart...so we could keep track of it
<WINENDINE?> TRAIN likes to keep TRACK of things
<TRAINWRECK> ...I hate you
<WINENDINE?> a few are ideas gears was trying to program
<WINENDINE?> but there are some ive never seen before - ?
LINGERING UNADDRESSED RULES

1. All previously stated rules that were agreed upon in the TERMS AND CONDITIONS are still relevant.
2. This game was intended for a Mature-acting audience, so please no excessive derogatory behavior!
3. As stated before, the Mainframe controlling the game has the final say in what occurs during it.
4. Use of cheating devices such as GameSharks or Game Genies are not tolerated by the system - any account that implements them to "GodMod" or play with another player's characters without their permission will be detected and forcefully locked out of their WONDER TRADE account permanently.
5. Severe inactivity of your account will cause you to automatically log-out.
<危険なGEARS1> This game was meant to give players an active challenge<危険 if
]you get glitched out of your game I'm sorry

UNGH! OH YEAH! SPINARAK! Now we can actually get somewhere! ^_^ except for, ya' know, the fact that she kicked it in the face...

I'll be headed for Cherrygrove shortly, I think. :3

Name: Riley Shorebird

Gender: Male

Age: 17

Appearance:

Riley, or Rile as his friends call him, is of average height and build, though he is a bit on the skinny side. His hair is a mess of unruly black locks and tangled spikes, looking as though it hasn't been properly brushed in ages. His eyes are ash gray, cool and dimmed except for the tiny spark of intelligence behind them that quickly disappears when he looks away. His clothing varies wildly, as though he simply throws together 'whatever works'. For his journey, though, his mother has put together something decent: a slightly blue gray and white light jacket with hood, permanently unzipped, over a navy blue T-shirt. The popular Pokéball insignias are emblazoned in white on the gray part of his jacket, just above the black Pokéball holder belt (currently empty) strapped on his waist. Riley's mother has thrown in a pair of white jeans she found buried somewhere in his closet and some brand new sneakers (navy, white at the edges and soles, white shoelaces and lining), because, as she put it, 'he's certainly going to have to walk a lot'. Finally, she threw him a dark blue, almost black, and gray cap (the cheap kind, the one every single kid out there has, only in different colors) to keep the sun out of his eyes.

History:

Rile's elementary school grades were quite horrible, to tell the truth. He constantly barely missed repeating a grade. But miraculously, he always scraped a pass, getting into a mediocre middle school, and then high school. The entire time, though, he never failed a single assignment: he only did them very, very poorly. He never took an active role in discussions, and participated very little in class, so teachers often had nothing to say about him. His parents have their suspicions about him, though, especially after he scored surprisingly well in a math exam (which has, by far, been one of his worst subjects) at the end of the year, when he had been on the brink of failing the subject. Another doubtful thing is how his close friends keep pestering him to help them with their homework, despite knowing about his academic failure.

Rile, on the other hand, doesn't really care. School has always been just a bore to him, and he sees no reason to bother, especially since he knows he'll eventually set out on a journey to become a Pokémon breeder someday. And as far as he knew, you needed no specific qualifications to become a breeder (except basic breeding skills, of course; then again, Rile has always been more interested in the care and raising part, rather than the actual breeding one). There are really just two things he's interested in: Pokémon and cooking. The two are often intertwined, seeing has how the majority of the 'food' he cooks is for Pokémon. His life has been pretty much uneventful, and, as far as he's concerned, boring. Two days after graduating high school, Rile decided it was as good a time as any to start his all-teenager must-have, life-changing Pokémon journey.

Personality:

Rile is not only lazy, as most people call him, but unmotivated. He feels no urge to participate, to discover, or to better himself. It's like he simply possesses no enthusiasm or natural curiosity; like he is satisfied with whatever he has. His teachers say he lacks ambition. But everyone knows that you'll never improve if you content yourself with what you have, ­which, for Rile, doesn't seem to be a lot.

But Rile isn't stupid. He knows what they think of him: halfhearted, uncommitted. And he thinks it's true; he simply doesn't feel any desire to learn more when his companion's rant is cut off and he needs to rush away: it was none of his business, and he should feel grateful that his friend confided in him in the first place. He's certain he won't enjoy this sport, even if he hasn't tried it¡--he knows himself better than that. He doesn't dream of being Gym Leader or Champion of the Pokémon League, like all these adults seem to think all children do; he knows he would dislike the extra attention those titles would bring. After all, who would want to have reporters telling the world about what he wore or what he ate for supper last Sunday? He's read enough dreary articles concerning celebrities' private lives¡--which other people had no right to know, anyhow--to spare those who would come after him the pain.

They think he shows no excitement, even when it comes to his passions: mainly, Pokémon. But Rile knows, and he knows that only his best friend can tell when the uninterested, dull look is gone and when, behind his dim eyes, there is a spark of life, and that only he can catch the quiet glimmer of interest that shows briefly, and then is gone with the next blink of an eye.

However, Rile does laze around often, and sometimes not only because he has nothing better to do than lie on his back and watch the clouds drift. He finds schoolwork tedious, and some days he feels like giving up altogether, because he's the only one that sees that there's no point in it--but dropping out of school would disappoint his parents greatly, so he perseveres and hangs in there¡...but just barely. His friends accuse him of pretending to be stupid. But he's not, not really, because even when he does make an effort, it's hard, because when the material is this boring, he can't concentrate on it properly. He is smart, he's simply not wanted to for so long that he's nearly forgotten how to.

Rile enjoys deadpan humor and sarcasm, and likes making snarky comments, which often earn him a bonk on the head. He complains a lot, because he likes to poke holes in theories and ideas, which also earns him a bonk on the head. He thinks logically, but he fully admits that in a world full of creatures that can breathe fire, water, and balls of energy, logic has its limits. He thinks imagination is worth just as much as pure fact; after all, it takes the same amount of effort to memorize something you've made up and something you haven't.

Good Posts, Nideous and Roserade. :3

@Roserade -

A strange nutty smell wafts in your direction. Looking up, a small acorn falls at you from the tree. Upon examination, it looks like it's tinted a brilliant golden color and smells like delicious peanut butter.

Grillo Acorn
A tasty treat to feed a Pokemon. It fully heals them and gives them a full belly. They're the most precious food to find for breeders, because they're packed with vitamins and minerals necessary for a growing Pocket Monster.

For some reason, it feels as if the Spinarak is appreciative that you gave it a proper burial. At least you did as much.

@Neiko Star - HOLY NINJA'D!

Brb, analyzing SU.

Seriously! Think about it!

Amanda = Begrudging Douchebag. (who's RP'er literally states in their SU that they're a douchebag.)
Witthoefft = Raging Greenpeace Douchebag.
Tyler = Judgmental and Snobby Douchebag.
Ivan = Stole an egg for its parents. Douchebag.
Adelle = Apathetic Douchebag.
Chris = Cold and Overly-Confrontational Douchebag.
Danielle = Bratty Doucebag.
Cy = Wimpy and Gynophobic Douchebag.
Riley = Lazy and Unmotivated Douchebag.

WE ARE ALL SO AMAZING <3

I'm pretty sure Gary's rich, since he drove around a red convertible at the age of ten.

AND GAH. KIYOSHI. TOO MANY DIFFERENT CHOICES. YOU KILL ME.

No seriously if this was a role-playing video I'd restart it hundreds of times to see all the different possibilities offered.

He didn't ride around in a convertablee because he was rich. He did it because he was Gary Oak! He needs no other explaination. Hm... Maybe Tyler's not quite the Oakster... But he's still awesome! And so is everyone else in this RP. We have a lot of really cool people. :D

We should all meet up! : D ...but then I would have to have Rile sit in a corner and not do anything.

Damn you, IC-ness!

Ah well. My first post should be up tomorrow...or after tomorrow, but probably tomorrow. I'm still sad about Sophrosune though. :'(

Just letting you all know:

You know Hurricane Irene the category one hurricane? Well, I'm getting hit by it tomorrow. So, I may lose electricity. So I may not be on tomorrow. But please, post! I'll do all updates once I'm able to get back on (If I lose electricity, that is! If not, I will most certainly be on at some point! [Hopefully. I don't know if my internet hotspot will work.])

I'm already fighting through Irene. I'm on the edge of her, I think. :\

Just a question about the types: do we (our character) know about it, like that's how it's always been, or is some a 'new' thing?
