Lmao I admit I brushed over your post also Zagan. I'm glad I checked the OOC and read every post. Regardless I definately wasn't expecting that.

@Lopnis: Even I make plenty of mistakes regarding syntax in writing.

Everything seems to be in order. I would however remind you that humanity has suffered primarily due to hunger, not nukes. Since most plant life is partially edible at best (See: fruits, nuts, berries) Sinnoh is still rather pretty to look at, if not disturbingly devoid of non-plant life. Just something to keep in mind. You're approved, and may begin posting when you wish.

@ytfeL: You are also approved. Your personality section was a tad short, but your opening post was good and the rest of your SU satisfactory. So I chose to ignore it.

Sorry for the length of the personality bit, I have been working on the SU half from home and half from work so some of the quality fell through the floorboards :/ I promise you won't have to ignore my short-comings much more in the future

So it's more dystopian than post apocalyptic, a lot of things may be broken or dirtied but the world as a whole is still in okay shape.

@Lopnis: I suppose you could say that yes. If you consider the borderline extinction of all sentient life I suppose. o3o

@ytfeL: Good to hear. :P

Sounds depressing when you put it like that.

Also Yellow, if I may, what condition are other cities in the region? It only just came to mind because I just assumed everywhere else was mostly deserted.

I assumed everywhere else was deserted due to the fact that the 3 mentioned cities were the thriving cities around Mt. Cornet which is now a very important area (more so then it was) for the Sinnoh region.

I imagine that the cities are still there in as rough as shape, if not worse, then the main areas of the RP. Probably a good hideout if nothing else.

@dcjboi: Ghost towns, maybe with a few anti-social stragglers, but they'd be in even worse conditions than the regular towns and would likely be complete messes, with some buildings no longer intact.

@lopnis: Yup! I would advise that everyone find another RPer to interact with however.

Well, there's a huge group of Yellow's characters, one of mine + his band of misfits, and now Kezius' pair of users. If you'd prefer less of a crowd, I can set up my Kirlia or Froslass user for an interaction since they're not doing anything.

Age: 16
Gender: Male
Nature: Jolly
Name: Boston Jargis

Nickname (Optional):Boss or Jarg

Age (10-13): 13

Sex (Male or Female): Male

Appearance: Boston is 5'5, about 120 pounds, and has long green hair that reaches his shoulders. He has muscular arms, and is a quite fast. He always wears a long sleeved navy blue shirt with a Cascade Badge displayed on the front. He keeps his sleeves rolled up and wears dark blue jeans and a navy beanie. He also has a blue poke etch from the good old days.

Personality (How does your character act and react to others? Their mental state? Flaws and/or personal weaknesses?): He's very defensive of himself and people who have earned his respect. He used to be a trouble maker, and still is if it involves adults. He tends to be a bit arrogant, but is really sweet if you take the time to know him. He used to be quite a jerk, but has taken the road to becoming nicer.

History: Boston grew up in Eterna City where some adults hate children and some don't. He tended to pick fights with the ones that didn't, which led to him getting in trouble quite a bit. His parents moved to Jubilife at a young age, for they hated children. He was alone until one kind teenager named Mike Wizowski found him and took him under his wing. They stayed together through thick and thin, but eventually agents from Jubilife kidnapped and killed Mike. Boston took his revenge by turning into Polo and slaughtered an entire squad of adults with his mighty Hydro Pump Hyper Beam combo. In a fit of anger, he fled to Hearthome City in hopes of joining the kid resistance.

Pokéspirit (No legendaries. Alternate color schemes are allowed.)
Species: Blastoise

Nickname (Optional): Polo

Personality (Can be as short or long as you want): He's excactly like Boston in terms of personality.

Moves (Maximum of 6. TM and egg moves are allowed. These are the moves your character gets when they fuse): Hydro Pump,Focus Blast,Skull Bash,Rapid Spin,Water Pulse,Hyper Beam

Other (Optional): Only uses one cannon for Hydro Pump and Focus Blast, and when he's in deep trouble, uses one for Hydro Pump and one for Hyper Beam. He's a forest green.

Opening Post: I'll post this in a second.

There we go.Filled it out all over again :p

but there are changes to the original.He has deep blue eyes as well.

Is there anything I can change before I make my first post?

@Hereto: Alright. Looking over your app there are some things that need to be addressed. First, the possession of a poketch. These are things that have not been made in approximately a century. And even if one did survive that long without damage electricity is no longer an easy thing to obtain to power it unless you're... y'know, an electric type or know an electric attack to justify being able to generate electricity. Batteries don't survive that long under any condition, for instance.

The second thing is that I noticed you picked purely offensive or hybrid offensive moves. I would advise that this is bare bones in terms of fighting ability, being one of the weakest strategies possible. Any given person with thunder wave, or protect, or toxic, or swords dance, any of those defense support moves? They're going to steamroll right over your character if you give him only offensive moves. Without defensive moves you can't rely on dodging, you can't rely on taking a bunch of hits because skull bash for instance is a lackluster boosting move that will be immediately outperformed by more dedicated boosting moves such as swords or dragon dance. Iron Defense on the other hand is exactly four times as effective as skull bash defensively in the same span of time and can't be outperformed.

You've got toxic, hail, protect, rain dance, rest, attract, swagger, mirror coat, yawn, refresh, captivate, counter, mimic. (Not to mention iron defense) So take advantage of them, unless you /want/ your character to be a rather poor battler. I tell you this because I care enough to not screw you over by not mentioning it, so that you get in and realize you hate the strategy you chose in hindsight.

Lastly? You're missing an opening post. That needs to be in your app before you can be approved. (It's basically a writing sample, only you can also use it as your first post in the RP after you're approved.) That's the primary area you're judged on. I would also advise that your character's personality and history are quite short, and you may want to expand on them somewhat.

How does he obtain food? Is he a really good scavenger? Does he steal? Is he a cannibal? What does that say about his personality and or mental state? How does he want to see the world change? What're his goals? His thoughts on others?

@Lopnis: Simply, nope. Arceus did not / does not discriminate there. Only Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Arceus are still physically present, and that's only because they live beyond the reach of the virus. That is to say, not in the mortal realm. (There's a hint in what I just said at an interesting tidbit of information.)

Appearance: dirty blond hair, hazel eyes, long black eyelashes, likes to wear a faded,well loved purple fuzzy vest and skinny jeans along with white flipflops with exotic flowers decorated on them, tan skin and long nails used for pinching her brother, ryan ishimura.

History (Where did your character grow up? Who did they grow up with? What have the been doing before this? Any noteworthy events?): lisa ishimura grew up with her pessimist brother, ryan ishimura, in the johto region where theres no free kids whatsoever and all pokespirits were enslaved to do the dirty work of battling, cleaning, and more.Luckily though, she never went hungry, because her brother would always supply her with food. how he went about getting this extra food, she never found out.Lisa wasnt the most sturdy of spirit wielders, so her friend who was a Ditto wieder would often have to change into her so lisa could recouperate without the adults knowing.She aways dreamed of overthrowing the adults, but none of her friends were powerful enough, and Lisa didnt want to have to resort to asking her brother to help.One day though, she heard adults talking about how in Sinnoh there was a city that was competely taken over by kids, and decided that she would go to Sinnoh in hopes that she would meet new allies powerful enough to aid herin her goal of ending adults tyranny, and someday show Arceus that humans are responsible enough to have real pokemon exist again, not just poke-spirits. lisa waited until the last day to tell her friends she was leaving, for fear they would try to stop her. they did not stop her, however, but they wished her a good journey and hoped to see her one day again. ryan insisted he follow her for protection even though lisa felt she did not need any.

heal pulse
shadow ball
thunderbolt
double team
morning sun
Other:espeon has synchronize,and a lavender body color with a magenta colored orb.

Opening Post:"aaaaaarrrrrgggghhhh!" i cried. i had fallen off of ryan's back while he was flying over the ocean! as i fell, i morphed into my espeon form. in form, i have a lavender body and a magenta orb on my head. sploosh! i splashed in the water with a crash. <oh no! what now?> (when i use <>, it means lisa's pokespirit is speaking). "well, it seems i fell off of ryans back while he was flying, obviously. the question is how to get out of this wet situation, because i can't swim!" i struggled to stay afloat when suddenly a blue dot appeared in the distance. <we've reached land!> "uh, i don't think so...." i replied uneasily. <ok, well try to stay alive while we try to figure out what this thing is.> "ok, ok, but i'm getting tired!" i said in frustration. as it got closer, i realized that it was a pokespirit in the form of a lapras. "help!" <help!> we cried together. "hello. you seem to be in distress. please hop on my back." i scrambled onto the lapras pokespirit's back fast to get out of the freezing ocean. "allow me to introduce myself. i am anna pentom, but you can call me laprisa. you are? who are you? i haven't seen you around these parts." laprisa said, navigating towards sinnoh. "well, i am lisa ishimura, and i came from the johto region. if you wish, you can call me espii. my old friends from johto called me that." "wow, what a story!" laprisa commented. "well, we be headed to sandgem town. we're about, say, 20 minutes away." and i listened to laprisa tell stories while we headed towards sandgem town, wherever in sinnoh that happened to be, far away from ryan or not.

@Hovde: I'm afraid not, but only because of the 'legendary' part. It's my personal experience that most roleplayers do not enjoy the presence of legendaries in an RP, and so I have no intention of introducing them.

@espoengirl: Hmm... Well, certain factors considered, I'm going to go ahead and approve you... on one condition. You're aware that this roleplay is rated M, correct? I mean, it's not like we're going to do anything terribly graphic, just... Dark themes, very dark themes.

You're aware of that right? I just want to check. Assuming you are and you're okay with that though, you can consider yourself approved and begin roleplaying when you wish.


(On an unrelated note, however. When writing posts, try to split your text into multiple blocks instead of just one big text block, know what I mean?)
