@ Lilizuki - The developer originally only wanted three players, but thought that wouldn't be very fun, so he added two wild cards for an additional two players. If he let those five people choose from the same list, it wouldn't be that interesting, so he made it so that after the first one to save Prof. Birch from the wild Pokemon picks his/her starter, that Pokeball disappears from the bag and so forth. Pretty much it >.<

@ Sarah - Alright, things seem to be good there :> Accepted I can't wait to see how Sarah will behave inside the game with all those monsters around :D

Heracross


@ Rune Alchemist - D'aww, Ariel~ The way you described her makes me want to meet her in person ;w; She seems so...cuddly. Anyway, I liked how you RP'd Ariel there I'd love to see how her D.I.D affects her gameplay. Which, by the way, means you're accepted with Treecko!

So that leaves us with Mudkip and Torchic~ If Lilizuki wants Torchic, and since Chuuritsu's reservation has expired, she can have Torchic I'll PM Chuuritsu about his reservation. So, that leaves with only 1 more open spot. I'll make an OOC thread right away so we can officially get this party started

EDIT: By the way guys, how do you feel about money in the RP? I plan to put it in to make it more game-like, but I'm afraid it would too much to handle.

Attention players!


So we don't waste too much time on the prologue, please ready a post (or several small ones) for the prologue. For a guide:

Prologue: Let’s get this adventure started
Tasks needed to accomplish:
- Meet game “mom” and learn about “dad.” Also, find out about Pokemon from her.
- Explore Littleroot Town. You can’t travel outside town until you’ve met your rival. If you try, your body uncontrollably walk back. Game script >.>
- Go to neighbor’s house. Meet rival.
- Go outside and see Prof. Birch, being attacked by a Pokemon. Get starter and battle Pokemon. Oh yeah, and if you try to back out from helping the Prof., you’re body uncontrollably walks back to the Prof.
- After defeating, you follow the Prof. back to the Lab, where he gives you your Pokemon officially, a PokeDex and 5 Pokeballs.

You are free to do whatever you want as long as you accomplish these tasks. I want to see how your characters react to the fact that you are now in the game world. After doing so, you can proceed to Chapter 1 and really start your adventure. And don’t worry~ You don’t have to accomplish all of these in one bulky post. You can post several small posts. As long as you accomplish all of them before proceeding. You arrive here during different times, have different houses and moms, but eerily have the same dad. You also have different rivals. Unlike in the game, your rival is not Birch’s daughter.

And about the whole "Sorry to keep you waiting," scene, your character has gone through that, but remembers it only as a dream or whatever. Long story short: time skip, yup.

Sold on Torchic. Can you say "Uber"?

As for money, it should be fairly simple to do it like in the game. Depending on any twists you have in mind...

Wait a minute...if the rival isn't Birch's daughter, how are we meant to prepare personal prologues? Seems like the rival's identity is a big part of the prologue, so we kinda of need to know the replacement.

I just read through everyone else's characters, I'm so excited for this to start. It's been a while since I last did a Pokemon rpg.

Is pokemon an established game in our characters reality?

Huh... Well, I'm not really sure how to prepare, since some points are unclear. Does it have to follow the Game Script? If it does, I have to get an Emulator to refresh my memory of R/S/E...

Don't get me wrong, I have Sapphire, but the battery's dead so I can't save with it.

Please note that some characters react differently. For example, My character and "Rival", they may be "friends" but Ariel won't enter the house... at all. Unless invited, but even then she needs a lot of coaxing.

Sarah Mo-... yeah, Anyway, it seems like Pokemon IS a game in our universe. See Curious.'s post. Unless RPM (It's what I call the RP's GMs) missed that, we have meta-gaming knowledge.
Except if your character doesn't do any gaming.

Following the game script would be a real pain for me, as I can't find a transcript of R/S/E anywhere on Google.

Adelaide is all about the meta-gaming. She's gonna genre savvy the heck out of this. :v

I'm playing on an Emulator right now, so I don't have any problems (Except for me having a slower posting time, as I have to pace the game to the RP)

That aside though, if we don't follow the game script, we don't have meta-gaming. I'm fine either way, but I'm leaning towards less game-scripts/meta-gaming.

Ariel's Meta-gaming knowledge... I don't really know how much. Personally, I have most experience in Yellow, Sapphire and Diamond, but Ariel... I guess if there is meta-gaming, she'll only know these three. That, and some hear-say from her classmates. She lived in Japan after all, where Pokemon is made.

The Developer... Well, suffice to say he'll make things harder for meta-gamers. He did make some changes. Also, being Genre-savvy doesn't have to rely on meta-gaming. You just have to know you're in the game to do that.

If there is a transcript online, my Google-fu has failed me. "

@Rune: Heheh, Adelaide needs no former experience with a particular game! Everything is run by tropes, and she just needs to manipulate them to her advantage.

@Sarah: Meta-gaming is using player knowledge to affect things in-game. For example, I know that the guy with the beard and bandana is named Archie, but Adelaide doesn't. If I were to have her say "Hey, that's Archie", that would be meta-gaming.

In other words, using OoC knowledge to be used IC.

Also, I can't find a Script too. I'm not that confident with my Google-skills anyway.

I seem to have found a way around the Rival. Huh. My Pokemon Knowledge is failing me, as I seem to have remembered that We and Rival are childhood friends. XD

Oh I got it, what if Sarah's knowledge from the game is the result of flashbacks? I was going to have it that she sort of retrained fragments of things her brother told her.

Like basic trainer knowledge.

Hmm...I think there's some confusion here.

Having Sarah Jr. (Mind if I call her that? ) remember things her brother told her would be perfectly in-character.

Using things you remember, but she doesn't, would be meta-gaming.

What? You two just confused me.

No, no. It's like this.

There's a bomb in a building, your character is in the building, but doesn't know there is a bomb.

You, the player, knows there is a bomb. Meta-gaming is using OoC knowledge, such that the character the player controls says that there's a bomb even though the character doesn't actually know there's a bomb.

I'm saying we can use meta-gaming, because the characters know about Pokemon in their world, and know something of it, like most Starters evolve at level 16. Meta-gaming, because the characters are sucked into a Pokemon game. They have meta-gaming knowledge.

I think this needs further elaboration.

We have IC Meta-gaming, which is our characters knowing about Pokemon games and using it in the Developer's Game.

We have OOC Meta-gaming, which is us knowing things, and using it to manipulate the actions of our characters.

To put it in a more confusing way for fun:

Our characters, IC, know about the Pokemon world OOC, which they can use to meta-game when IC in the IC world, but we can't use our OOC OOC knowledge because it would be meta-gaming OOC, instead of meta-gaming IC, which is fine.

Oh LAWWWD lol, I think I get what's being said.

If I use my knowledge about Pokemon to aid Sarah that's meta-gaming.

Took me a few seconds to wrap my head around this, but yes. Exactly.

We are so good at explaining ourselves, you guise.

I foresee no issues with group cohesion at all.

I could somehow understand what you are trying to say, I'm just making the explanation clearer.

I'm going to school now.

Well, my reservation time is up, but nobody has claimed Mudkip yet. So, I'll make my SU now then! :3

Name: Erik Andersen
Age: (at least 14) 16
Gender: Male

History: Erik was born and raised in Denmark, and studied in a prestigious private school in Copenhagen during his younger years. He lived with his mother, his father and his two brothers. Erik was the youngest. His family was fairly rich, though Erik was sickly. Most of his good traits and talents are overshadowed by his sickliness. As a child, Erik often had to visit the doctor, and rarely went outside. As a result, Erik spent most of his time reading, and he has few to no friends as well. It has always been Erik's dream to go outside and see the wonders it has to offer, though his parents weren't so big of his idea and decided he should just do something else inside instead. Erik was disappointed, but he never lost hope.
He has an aquarium, with many fishes. He'd use that as inspiration or motivation. Though one time, a cat went in his house through an open window, the cat ate around two to four fishes. Erik was sad, yet mad at the same time.
During his teenage days, he spent most of his time indoors. He'd usually read, paint, and to a lesser extent, play musical instruments (though he was bad at it). Erik was still sickly, so he had to visit the hospital often. And it's starting to interfere with his studies. Erik's parents were worried, so they decided he'll be homeschooled. It kinda goes like this; a teacher from the school he studied would go to Erik's house. That's where he'd do his exams, activities and all, so that he could still be graded. Finally, he was fifteen, and maybe his parents had a change of heart. He asked his parents if he could go outside.

But they rejected.
( Sorry for the short history, it's late here. Tell me if you want to add/remove/be in-depth about something. ) )

Personality: His most notable trait is his sickliness, though he is also creative and smart, thanks to books. He may act spoiled sometimes, and would probably throw a light tantrum if things go the way he didn't expect it. Rather easily annoyed as well, and is considered an emotionless person, though he is actually very emotional. He is just good at hiding those emotions. Optimistic, and rather lonely, since he was isolated from people. Often would probably use big words, well, because he read this dictionary he has a lot of times.

Though he may be smart, he is bad at making decisions. He'd often pick the choice that will benefit him more, not thinking of the consequences. As a result, he'd often regret it at the end. Speaking of regrets, he regretted a lot of things he did in his life, thanks to this "bad at making decision" attitude. He always dreams about the things he regretted often, but he considers them nightmares.

He also has a green thumb, and would plant indoor plants. He fears that the environment would be destroyed before he even experienced it, so the least he can do is plant inside. He also has an aquarium, which he uses as inspiration.

Despite that, he has a rather large appetite when it comes to meat. He feels guilty about it sometimes.

Likes:
Painting
Reading
Money
Nature
Planting
The Outdoors
Meat (it's like a guilty pleasure)

Dislikes:
Staying indoors
Being sick
Cats

Starter Pokémon: Mudkip

RP sample:
Spoiler:
"Happy birthday, Erik!" His parents and his two brothers greeted him rather loudly in Erik's room. He smiled a bit. He went downstairs, to find a large buffet, with lots of meat. Erik was overjoyed.

"This is splendid!" He loudly said, happy yet guilty with the meat at the same time. The others chuckled.

"Well, enjoy the food!" His mother said.

"I will!" Erik said, grinning, then proceeding to the dining table. He got the food he liked and ate them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
- - -

It was late at night. He was in his room, in his brand new e-mail account. He didn't use the computer often, because he'd probably get more sick, his parents said. But it was late at night, and his parents were asleep. So, he decided to sneakily use the computer.

". . .What's this?" He said, when a new e-mail came in his inbox, and it wasn't from Yahoo.

He slowly read the message, and was very surprised. How could someone as sickly as him be a tester for a new game? He accepted, anyway. The game might have an adventure to it, so why not? He thought.


( Sorry if this SU was bad overall, you see it was kind of rushed...)
