Pokemon Chronicles
Episode I - Kanto

SIGN-UPS ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Plot

Greetings! Welcome to the world of Pokemon. It is a vast and diverse land, full of many different creatures as well as people known as Pokemon Trainers who control them in battle.

You are one of these Pokemon Trainers. With your new Starting Partner at your side and your fellow Pokemon Trainer companions, each having their own unique Pokemon, you must travel through the land that is Kanto, collecting Gym Badges from the various cities as you strive for one, single goal: to be the Pokemon Master!

You, a resident of Pallet Town, have decided to finally begin your Pokemon Journey. With the help of Professor Oak, the local Pokemon Expert who provdes you with your first Pokemon, you set out to begin your journey through Kanto!

Your job will be to catch wild Pokemon, as you train them to become powerful battlers. You can decide which moves they learn through TMs and HMs as well as if they will evolve or not!

Beware though, because an evil organization of Pokemon thieves is on the loose throughout the region. They are known as Team Rocket, and they will do anything to steal rare and/or powerful Pokemon. It may be up to you to stop them and their evil plans!

You can collect items and secret Pokeballs to help your chances of catching wild Pokemon. Your final goal is to collect all 8 Kanto Gym Badges and face off against the Elite Four to prove that you are indeed the true Pokemon Champion.

There will be many challenges and many people who get in your way. Will you work with your fellow Pokemon Trainers, or against them? Only time will tell. The choices are all up to you as you build your team and try to become the best Pokemon Trainer of all time!


Character Sheet

Character Name: You character's name. Please, no relation to any existing people in the games and/or Anime.
Gender: Male of female
Age: Between 12 and 16
Birth Date: This can be anything.

Apperance: This is a description of how your character looks. This should be fairly long (at least a couple of paragraphs). It should include your character's physical traits as well as the clothing they typically wear. You can also include little gadgets and trinkets in this description.

Personality: This is a description of how your character acts around others and how they interact with their Pokemon. Be sure to create a character you will enjoy playing, because I will enforce that you roleplay similar to your character's personality description!

History: Besides being born and raised in Pallet Town, your character's past is pretty much up to you. Just keep in mind, please, that they don't get any super powers or anything like that. You are a normal 12-16 year-old human. Remember, the longer and more detailed this is, the better. I will be accepting only the best characters sign-ups!

Preferred Starter: This is where you put what starting Pokemon you'd like to begin with. Remember certain Pokemon may already chosen and there is only one availible of each, so you may not get your first choice. Here is a list of them:


Bulbasaur - 001

Level: 5
Type: Grass/Poison
Gender: Female
Ability: Overgrow
Attacks: Tackle, Growl
Nature: Modest


Charmander - 004

Level: 5
Type: Fire
Gender: Male
Ability: Blaze
Attacks: Scratch, Growl
Nature: Serious


Squirtle - 007

Level: 5
Type: Water
Gender: Male
Ability: Torrent
Attacks: Tackle, Tail Whip
Nature: Hardy


Additionally, aside from the three basic starters listed above, there are two other Pokemon which are much more difficult to get. In order to select one of them as your starter (keep in mind that there is still only one of each), you must post an exceptionally good sign-up. If it isn't good enough, I will recommend that you redo it or choose one of the other three Pokemon, if they are still availible. Here are the other two options for very good sign-ups:


Pikachu - 025

Level: 5
Type: Electric
Gender: Male
Ability: Static
Attacks: Thundershock, Growl, Tail Whip
Nature: Rash


Eevee - 133

Level: 5
Type: Normal
Gender: Female
Ability: Adaptability
Attacks: Tackle, Tail Whip, Helping Hand
Nature: Bashful



Gameplay

The games system is fairly simple. Basically, after every Trainer has been accepted (3-5 people, depending on how many get Eevee or Pikachu with exceptional posts), the game will begin.

I, myself, will not actually be playing the game. Instead, I will be the "Game Master", helping players along their Journies. I will control the wild Pokemon as well as other Pokemon Trainers, Team Rocket, Gym Leaders, Professor Oak, etc.

The only things the players can control are their own characters and that character's Pokemon. Please do not try to "God Mod" and control other people's characters or Pokemon, or wild Pokemon either (as far as capturing them is concerned). Basically, you can fight the wild Pokemon, but I will be the one who decides if you catch it or not and how powerful it is depending on the quality of your post.

The players will not necessarily post in a specific, pre-determined order but, regardless, I will post right after that last person and sometimes even after each player individual player, depending on how busy I am. Then the cycle will start all over again. Please read the forum Role Play rules if you have any other questions or concerns.


Rules

1) No Legendaries! I don't care who you are as a Trainer. No player will ever own a legendary Pokemon. Sorry. You may, however, get to control one for a limited amount of time during a special event...

2) Play your Personality! Please, after you've spend the time creating an in-depth personality for your character, please make sure that you actually make that personality surface through good roleplaying. Otherwise, it is a waste of time.

3) YOU MUST BE ACTIVE!!!! This is the most important rule for this RPG. If you are not active, don't even bother signing up. My goal is to have everyone log in and post AT LEAST once per day. It may seem extreme, but I feel that is the best way to keep the momentum and flow of the story going. If you are going to be away for a day or two, please let me know. I will control your character until you return.

4) Kanto Pokemon Only! This is very important, seeing as we are roleplaying in the Kanto Region. This means that only Pokemon numbered 001-151 will appear during your adventures through Kanto. Please, please, please don't break this rule. We will move to other Regions later, I promise!

5) Stay Together! This rule seems dumb, but it is very important. If the Pokemon Trainers don't stick together then the game gets very dull and unwieldy. Temporary straying is, of course, permitted but please do not overdo it. You guys are a team!

6) HAVE FUN!! Anyone seen not having fun will be immedietly kicked, no questions asked. Sorry. If you are not here to have fun, you are gone...haha.

dude this sounds really fun

Character Name: Bobby Baker
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Birthdate: November 3rd, 1991
Apperance: Bobby is about 5ft 5in tall and weighs about 120lb. Very thin he's skin tone is tan almost to the point of looking like he is from the Caribbean as he spends most of his time outside. He has a mess of curly black hair that is constantly knotted and has dark brown Hershey chocolate eyes. He not on the strong side so he's very boney to the point that you can count his ribs. Among his family he is tall and lanky when he is actually rather short. Wears a brown unzipped jacket all the time with a black/brown shirt underneath. Wears blue jeans and and faded blue shoes. The shoes are a pair of hover shoes that Bobby has invented. Bobby also sports a pair of goggles that his dad gave him for his 8th birthday on his head that lets him see in the rain and sandstorms. They also double as binoculars and lets him see his and the opponents pokemon's stats. Bobby has a red bandanna that he wears over his hair to hid a giant scar that he recieved when he was younger when he fell off a cliff during a fight.
Personality: Bobby on the surface seems to be rather edgy and sarcastic. While he has a sarcastic streak a mile long deep down he is a very happy carefree boy. Always thinking up random thoughts and saying them out loud Bobby is known to draw odd looks from people. He also dosen't know when to keep his mouth shut, saying the first thing that comes to his head, most of the time inappropriate at the time. Tries to come off as a ladies man, Bobby actually is hopeless when it comes to dating. This isnt surprising as he is known to be shy at first, but when you get to know him he is one of the closet friends you'll have.
History: Born prematurely on November 3rd 1991, it looked like Bobby wasn't going to last long in this world. But as fate would have it Bobby is a fighter at heart and manage to recover from his unknown condition. His first few years were rough living with his mom in his Grandma's house while his dad was at college. As soon as he graduated Bobby's father took his mom and Bobby into his small apartment in Pallet Town. They soon quickly moved to a condo where Bobby was introduced to Pokemon and other kids. In kindergarden the other kids distrusted Bobby so he turned to his wild Pokemon friends for support. Their friendship didn't last long as soon Bobby and his family moved to Vermillion City.

There life was even harder for Bobby as he was now an older brother to a little brother and a little sister. Now he had to contend with new friends, a new place, and new family members. The three years here were Bobby's loneliest as no one wanted to talk to him and he was constantly watching his brother and sister, despite being 8, and watching his parents marriage fall apart. It was at this time Bobby was given his goggles by his dad.

When Bobby was 9 disaster struck. Bobby's dad moved his family back to Pallet Town and then 2 weeks after being moved in Bobby's dad left. The family was left in pieces as Bobby's mom worked 2 jobs and his siblings were sent to various relatives. Bobby then found a way to vent out his anger at his dad. Street fighting. This started Bobby's path to the person he is today.

When Bobby was 13 he beat one of the challengers in a fight on a cliff, but the challenger was a sore loser and shoved him off the cliff. Bobby scraped his head on the way down which resulted in a scar on his forehead. Luckily his wild Pokemon friends from his younger days found and rescued him. When he got home he realized what a burdon he was being to his mother so he decided to go look for his dad as a Pokemon Trainer. His mom forbid it but in the end they compromised and he would leave when he was 16. During this time he built his hover shoes which help him cross sand, water in short periods of time, and also made him go faster. He is now 16 and is ready to start his journey.

This is a modified version of one of my characters. xD; Also, a question about Eevee...I assume that there's going to be a Pokémon Chronicles for each region, so I could choose not to evolve her until Hoenn, right?


Character Name: Jack Wellington

Gender: Male

Age: 16

Birth Date: July 18, 1991

Apperance: Jack is, to put it simply, what every male aspires to be in terms of appearance. At 6'0, he is an ideal height. His dark brown hair is worn in a shaggy style, parted down the middle, choppy fringe falling just above his eyelids. The rest of his hair lightly graces his chin, but dares not fall further. Jack has a slender physique, accentuated by slight muscle. His eyes are a sparkling emerald green hue. His skin is pale, flawless in texture, not a hint of acne to be found. His lips are thin, rose-colored. His abdomen is hugged by a tight-fitting black tee-shirt, atop of which he wears a white button down tee-shirt, which he leaves open and unbuttoned. On his left wrist, he wears a black sweatband, and on the right side of his hips, a single silver chain dangles. On his right thumb, he also wears a thick ring, decorated with an ornate celtic design. Jack wears light blue jeans, overtop of which you can see the waistband of his boxers. On his person, he carries a cell phone, and is almost never without it. He speaks in a smooth British accent. Yes, Jack is incredibly attractive.

Personality: Unfortunately, ugly people never have the appearance to match. And that's exactly what Jack is--an ugly person. Though he looks good, he's not one to associate with. Jack is rude, and will not hesitate to take advantage of others. He is a thief of sorts--while he has never stolen anything tangible, Jack has the habit of sneaking in to places where he does not belong...and not paying for it, of course. He is arrogant, and holds himself in the highest possible regard. He gets annoyed with others easily, often resorting to spouting rude remarks at those around him. Jack is also an incorrigible flirt. It's possible that he has a softer side...he just has yet to reveal it.

History: Jack was born sixteen years ago to a wealthy family in Pallett Town. He had been given anything his little infant heart desired, and that happened to be a lot. He was given private tutors. He was taught piano, a skill that he still retains to this day. However, despite all the Pokémon memorabilia he owned, Jack was not allowed to own an actual Pokémon. His parents told him it was dangerous, he could get hurt. This, Jack didn't like. Though he was merely five, he felt he could handle a Pokémon. Despite his protests, his parents would not give him what he truly wanted. Being the spoiled brat he is, he couldn't let the issue go.

Now, we're brought to Jack's kindergarten years. He was still forced to go through intensive study sessions, which he slowly began to distance himself from. Jack's one goal was to obtain a Pokémon and go on a journey, never mind that he wasn't even old enough to go outside without being watched constantly by his parents. It was at this time that he met his first friend, a sickly ebony-haired boy named Rem. This boy was frail, unable to go outside for extended periods of time due to a chronic heart condition. Jack never minded. He would go visit Rem (with his parents by his side, of course!), and play with him inside. Slowly, the two boys became closer. Rem, too, wanted to be a Pokémon trainer, though he accepted the fact that he would never be able to, due to his illness. Nevertheless, the two boys would often go on "adventures" around the house, challenging and defeating the gym leaders one by one. These adventures would often end with a warm plate of cookies and Jack's departure.

Upon reaching the age of eight, Jack convinced his parents to allow him to go to public school. Initially, the request had shocked his mother into fainting, but Jack soon explained that he desired to interact with more people. Plus, Rem was to be entering public school as well, his heart problem mild for the time being. The two friends were soon joined by a girl around their age, a small blonde named Mia. Of course, it was obvious from the beginning that both boys liked Mia, planting the seeds of jealousy in them both. However, their friendship was not so easily ruined--the two had been inseparable for three years, after all. Unfortunately, this was all about to change.

When the three were in middle school, at the ripe age of thirteen, Rem set his mind to the task of asking Mia out. Of course, this didn't sit too well with Jack, who instantly planted his fist in Rem's face upon learning that he had every intention of asking Mia out. Ultimately, neither boy worked up the courage to do it--despite being her two best friends, neither of them thought they had a chance with Mia, one of the most popular girls in school. The two became rivals. This was rectified shortly, when Mia told them she would never date either of them, and that they were too good of friends to let something like this come between them. Surprisingly, they both accepted this explanation and became best friends once more.

And now, we've reached the turning point in Jack's life. The three best friends were all fifteen. It was the start of high school, the beginning of their freshman year. Only two of them would make it to the start of the week. On the first day of high school, Jack received a phone call from Rem's hysterical mother, who told him that Rem had passed away in his sleep. Jack's reaction had been pure shock. The phone fell from his fist, and he backed into the corner, curling up into a ball. He did not go to school that week. Instead, he sat in his room and cried until his body was completely devoid of water. When he finally emerged, he looked sick as can be, and had to miss yet another week due to illness.

It was then that Jack changed dramatically. By the start of sophomore year, he was dating Mia. The two were now practically polar opposites--Mia spent all her time in the library studying, and Jack went out on his weekends, drinking his days away. Despite this, the two seemed happy together. That is, until Jack found out that he was about to become a father. He panicked, and, while he told Mia he would support her and the child, he was scared. After all, they were merely sixteen years old. He got his way out, however. It so happened that one day, in the midst of cleaning (it was a work scholarship--Mia didn't have enough money to pay for books), Mia fell down the stairs, causing her to lose the baby.

After breaking it off with Mia, Jack set his mind to one thing. He would live the dream--both his and Rem's. He would be a world-class Pokémon trainer.

Preferred Starter: Eevee

Character Name: Aaron Johnson
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Birth Date: September 16th


Apperance: Aaron is a 5 foot 9 inch 220 pound male. He is bald with blue eyes. He wears a white hat, a red necklace, a black t-shirt with a red hoodie on, and black pants. He wears a black and red mask to cover up his ruined face. His face has a cut on down his right eye. The only reason he wears a black t-shirt and a blue hoodie is because across his chest, he has a cut starting at his peck and going towards his hip. He also wears black glasses if he doesn't want to wear his mask. He found his glasses in his fathers closet and he stole them without his father knowing. He also matches every clothing he wears, if his mask is red and black, he'll wear red and black shirts and pants, but he will always wear white shoes.


Personality: Aaron's personality is very unique. He loves being with his friends but he can't be with them because he's trapped on an island. He loves playing with his parents pokemon because they help him out with everything. When he was outside of school, he fought with his fathers Machamp and Machoke so he can get stronger if someone attacks him. Since the two guys beat him up in school, he never been hiself, he always been ruthless and mean against people he doesn't know very much.


History: Aaron was born sixteen years ago and his parents were living in Pallet Town. All Aaron did was draw pokemon and write pokemon stories all day long. When he was 5 years old, he loved playing with his fathers Gengar and his mothers Rapidash. Since he started school, he used his fathers Alakazam to answer all of his questions for him and he had straight A's.

When Aaron was starting his 1st grade years, he wanted to start his own pokemon adventure so he started making a lot of pokemon stories in his notebook. When his father was watching him writing his stories, his father and mother had an idea.

When he was in the middle of his 3rd grade years, his father and mother handed Aaron their Alakazam and Persian. Later on in his ending of 3rd grade, his report card came into his fathers hands and his father told him to have a special tutor which was his Alakazam.

When Aaron's fathers Alakazam decided that he was good enough to start public school again, he met a friend who already had a pokemon. His friend was in the senior class and was about to graduate so Aaron didn't have enough time to talk to him.

When he was starting the 5th grade, Aarons parents told him that they found a perfect girlfriend for Aaron and it was this girl named Crystal. Crystal was a girl that wore a pink hat, a pink shirt, a white skirt, and white shoes. Aaron loved this girl so they started to date but all of the other kids made fun of them.

When he was in the 7th grade, he was still dating Crystal but that all came crashing down when she saw a smarter guy. Aaron was single again so after school he came home and created a mask made out of some material that he found in his fathers dresser.

Aaron's mask was completed and when he introduced it to everybody in school, everybody started to beat him up. One kid slashed him across the shirt with a knife and another kid cut him down his right eye. When he came home that night, his parents saw that he had a rip on his shirt, but he said it was nothing so they asked about his cut on his face.

Now he is 16 years old and his parents finally decided that he should start his own pokemon adventure. His parents decided that they should live in Cinnibar Island because his father decided to work with Blaine, but they still didn't know how to get his first pokemon to start his own pokemon adventure.


Preferred Starter: If Charmander is chosen which I see it is, I'll pick Squirtle as a starter.

To Zimvee: You have a great start there, but I'm afraid your sign-up is just a little short. Look to Trainer Kat's Sign Up as an example. So, I cannot accept your sign-up at this time. Add about a paragraph more to each area and fix those minor grammtical errors, and you are golden. Charmander will be reserved for you for 24 hours, then I'm afraid someone else can claim him. So hurry up man! I want you to join!

To Trainer Kat: One word. AWESOME!! That is an exceptional Sign-Up, and I would say that you definitely met the requirements to getting one of the special Pokemon. Eevee is yours, my friend. I'll PM you with all the information you'll need. EDIT: I can't send you a PM because you Inbox is full. Free up some space please so I can get that information to you. Thanks.

To Fighting Infernape: Okay then. I just need you to add about a paragraph or two more to your character's personality. I just don't feel it is deep enough right now. Bobby remade his Character, so I'm going to assume you are going with Squirtle? If not, just let me know.

I am accepting you, Fighting Infernape, on the condition that you go through and edit your character's Appearance and Personality as soon as possible! Please do that and you can get ccepted right away!

Nature: Gentle
Character Name: Derek Stone
Gender: Male
Age: 15
Birth Date: April 21st


Apperance: The first thing most people notice from Derek is his stature. He stands nearly 6’1, probably 6’2. He has a very rough build, showing marked arm and torso muscles. He weighs around 135 pounds and is very strong and endurant. He can go for miles carrying heavy stuff and get only minimal tired. The rest of his body muscles aren’t so out there, but they are still marked. His skin isn’t completely white, but he is does not look like he tans for hours. He doesn’t even tan, for the matter. His skin has a natural mixture of white and very light tan color. His arms and legs are somewhat large, as well as his fingers.

His hair is very short and almost naturally spiked up on almost all areas. His head has a ‘normal’ shape, and his face and everything on it is somewhat small. His eyes are round and have a hazel-like color. His nose is slightly pointed, and so are his ears, but to a very small extent. Another notable fact is that he always seems blushed, this due to a medical condition known as rosacea, in which his cheeks are always pink, and sometimes his forehead. His teeth are pearl white and straight, and the skin on his hands and face is smooth, even though it’s a bit ‘rough’ in his arms.

He is almost wearing jeans, or sometimes baggy shorts, with sneakers that allow him to run and move freely. On top, he is mostly wearing a T-Shirt or polo and some thick jacket or sweatshirt. He very rarely wears long sleeves. His backpack is plain light brown. He wears a plain watch and and a few other stuff on his wrist.

Personality: Derek is a a person with a great overall personality. Calm, relaxed and respectful when he is in a peaceful place, Fiery and brave when in danger and always optimistic and cheerful. He is somewhat quiet and shy around people he doesn't, again, always treating everyone with respect, and he may be afraid to start a conversation. Once he has gotten confident with the people that surround, he will always be extremely kind and courteous. He is very loyal and acknowledges friendship as one of the most important aspects of life. He isn't afraid of anything, or at least anything he knows about. Even as shy as he can be, he will always be up for greeting or helping anyone in need, and will risk his life with no second thought for a cause.

Perhaps some of his worst features is that he may be too competitive, and even though you need to push it really far to make him angry, you don't wanna see him do so. He can also take stuff too seriously and lie, even though they are about very small and sometimes non-important things. Anywho, he is a very cheerful person anyone can go to when it needs advice or is sad, as he almost never is. He gets a jolly out of helping people and the only bad moments for him are when his family or friends get hurt. He sees himself, both in appearance and personality as just a plain average and everyday guy. He can speak both English and Spanish very well.

History: Derek was born to a pretty much average family in the small Pallet Town. His fathers were quite caring and loving to him when he was young. He was rewarded and punished for his actions whenever needed. His father was a Pokemon Trainer, a quite good one, actually, and his mom used to be a Pokemon Center nurse. Derek was taught to do a load of things at early ages, like swimming, playing basketball and playing the electric bass at ages ranging from 3 to 6 years.

When he was in kindergarten, he used to be shy around people, something he still is, but also learned how to make friends. He was taught how to always be courteous and respectful to others and how to put everyone before him. Those were some reasons he was able to make friends. He was a very smart student and got very good grades on most of the subjects.

Derek has been adventurous since birth, so his father took him on explorations with him every once in a while. He took extreme care of him, so no one had to worry; and because of this Derek knows how to survive in the wild with basic survival skills, like building tents and things resembling that.


As he grew up, his bond with Pokemon grew. Both wild Pokemon and the Pokemon that were always around him. The idea started to appear on his head about capturing his own Pokemon and exploring all of the Region of Kanto, and maybe other regions; since he hadn't ever gone too far in expeditions with his father. He read many stories of far away lands, legendary Pokemon and about historical Trainers that performed awesome deeds. He dreamed of becoming a remembered trainer, too, but he had to conform with traveling with his father in the meantime. It's not like he didn't want, but a desire of traveling further and further and with his own Pokemon inevitably formed inside his mind.

His parents, though, said he was too young to have Pokemon, and didn't allow him to request a Pokemon from Prof. Oak. Derek had to live up with the idea and continue with his life, learning about Pokemon only in Trainer Schools and by watching other battles. Eventually he grew too old like to only do that.

As he grew up, his manners, conversation skills, and knowledge about Pokemon increased.

When he was 13, his father was diagnosed a terminal illness which was even unknown to the doctors around, causing him to die not too long after. The disease had apparently been obtained on an expedition he did by himself. This caused a very profound pain inside Derek, mainly because he couldn't do anything for his father. He then had to continue living only with his mother.
When he turned 15, he finally got permission from his mother to be a Pokemon Trainer; in memory of his father. Now his goal is set: Become one of the best trainers of the world in honor of his father.

Preferred Starter: Pikachu! Or if my sign up isn’t good enought then I’d like Charmander, then Squirtle, then Bulbasaur..

Please forgive me for any typos or if some areas of the Sign up aren't understandable And wow, cool, my 100th post =D

Hey Brawl, what do you mean by helping me? By the way, I'm in school and I'll make my trainer card pretty soon, probably still during school or at 4:00 central.

Oh, alright, about that trainer card thing, can we fill out all of the spots with the pokemon we're going to catch, or are we just going to start out with our main pokemon and then go with it, because I'm on pokecharms right now.

To Fighting Infernape: You're good with that Trainer Card, man. You'll fill it in as we go.

To Everyone: The Adventure is about to begin. The only person I've yet to hear from is Zimvee. In a little bit I'm going to be posting up the beginning of Episode I - Kanto so we can begin. Get ready!

Professor Oak's Lab


A tall man, with gray hair and a long, white lab-coat sat as his desk, fiddling with a new device he had just barely created. It was red, with small black buttons and, currently, a black screen capable of displaying information on all of the 151 Pokemon!

The room he sat in was filled with devices similar to the one he held in his hand, all related to Pokemon in some way. That's what this man was, after all. He was a Pokemon Expert! And he wasn't self-proclaimed, by the way. Many people came from around the world to hear about his latest discoveries and inventions.

There was a knock at his door. Startled out of his intense concentration, yet satisfied with the work he had done on his new device, he got up and walked over to the door. Through the glass, he could see the shadowy outlines of four figures in front of him. Opening the door, he knew instantly who they were. As he looked down to check his watch, he had been right! It was 9am, and these teenagers were here to get their first Pokemon and begin their Pokemon Journies!

"Ah, so you must be the new Pokemon Trainers," Oak said to them, inviting them into his lab as he lined them up for inspection. "Welcome to my lab."

You see, each one of these aspiring Pokemon Trainers had filled out a survey only one week ago, detailing their physical traits as well as their preferences for Pokemon along with their motivation to be Pokemon Trainers. He knew a great deal about them already.

The first of them, standing on the far left, was around 6 feet tall and equal in height with the Professor. He had brown hair and pale skin. Looking at the notepad in his hand, Oak knew who this Trainer was.

"Hello, Jack Wellington," The old man said to him. "I suppose you'd like to get right down to business. Very well. After close examination, I've decided that Eevee would be the ideal Starter Pokemon for you."

And the Professor, grabbing a red and white Pokeball from his table, handed it to the Trainer.

Moving down the line, the next person was very thin and he had black hair with red bandana.

"Bobby Baker?" Oak inquired, but was sure of his guess. "Your Pokemon is Charmander. Here you go."

Oak handed the Pokeball to the Trainer.

The next up was the tallest of the three. He had tan skin and shot, spiky brown hair.

"And you are Derek Stone, I presume?" Said Oak as he grabbed another Pokeball from the table, handing it to the Trainer. "That is Pikachu. I think the two of you will get along very well."

And then there was one. The last teenager there was one of the shortest of the Trainers, but was also the biggest. Oak certainly wouldn't have called the boy fat, because he wasn't. He just had very broad shoulders and a thick chest. He was wearing a black and red mask, which puzzled the Professor.

"And you must be Aaron Johnson," Oak toled him, grabbing the last Pokeball from the table as handed it over. "There you go!"

And with that, all of the Trainer's had recieved their Starting Pokemon. Grabbing four small devices from his desk, he handed one to each of the new Trainers.

"These are Pokedexs," He told them. "They are used for cataloging information about all the known 151 Pokemon! Use them wisely, because they can spell the difference between victory and defeat. Knowledge is power."

Then Oak handed out 5 empty Pokeballs to each Trainer.

"Those are for capturing wild Pokemon," He continued. "Use them wisely, because they aren't cheap!"

And then, with the Trainers all packed and ready to start their Journies, Oak waited, seeing if they had any questions for him.



OOC: Now is your chance to ask Oak any questions you may have before officially starting your journies. If you have no questions, then simply make a post stating that or something similar (you can also do any sort of free-form RP you'd like now, within reason of course). Once everyone has posted their questions (or lack of questions), I will answer them as Oak, and then you guys will be off!

Bobby woke up with a start. He knew without even looking at the clock that he was late. "Oh no!" he said. He quickly jumped out of bed, threw on his clothes and grabbed his backpack that he packed last night. He ran downstairs ate a very quick breakfast, said a final teary good-bye to his mom and ran out of the house. As he ran he started to think "I'm leaving." He stopped and turned and looked down the hill at Pallet Town. He relized he would miss the place, but he was also excited that he was leaving. He ran towards the lab and started when he saw to other guys there. "I didn't know I was going with people...". He stopped running, gave them both a tight smile and went and leaned against the wall. After a while another boy ran up. "Great, another person tags along..." Bobby said under his breath. One of the boys gave him a look when he said that.
A few minutes later a man in a white coat came out and called them in. The man in the white coat introduced himself as Prof. Oak. The boys lined up and Prof. gave the tall boy a Pokeball that had something called Eevee. The Prof. came to Bobby next and gave him a Pokeball with a Charmander inside. Bobby released the Pokemon and saw that it was an orange lizard like creature with a fire burned on his tail. "Hi..." Bobby said shyly. He quickly returned Charmander when he saw the other boys looking at him.
Bobby thought long and hard about any questions that he might have before he started his journey as the Prof. was looking at them like they had any. He debated on whether to ask the Prof. if he has seen or knew his father, but that seemed irrelevant to what was going on, so with a sigh Bobby said “ I don’t have any questions old man”. And with that Bobby walked outside.

Aaron landed back on the Pallet grounds and then he saw his father leave on his his Charizard.

"Thank you that my parents decided that I should start my adventure," said Aaron to himself.

Aaron looked for route one, the route to get to the Viridian City but when he started walking towards the grass, an old man with grey hair, white shirt, and brown pants came walking towards him.

"Hey, you can't go out there yet!" hollered the old man.
"Why not Professor Oak?" asked Aaron.
"You know my name?" asked Professor Oak.
"Yes, my parents are former pokemon trainers," said Aaron.
"Oh, yes your parent are," said Professor Oak. "Come with me if you like."

Aaron followed Professor Oak towards his laboratory and then when they walked inside, they finally walked towards a brown table.

"Alright Aaron, here are five pokemon, they are Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, and Eevee," said Professor. "You can only pick one."

Aaron looked and browsed at all five pokemon and then he picked Squirtle as a starter.

"So you picked the tiny turtle pokemon Squirtle, that's a good choice," said Professor Oak.
"Can I go yet?" asked Aaron in an excited way.
"No not yet, here is a pokedex and five empty pokeballs to catch wild pokemon during your journey, they aren't cheap so use them wisely," said Professor Oak.

Aaron grabbed the pokedex and the five empty pokeballs and put them in his black bag what his mother gave him. Aaron walked outside and sighed.

"Now finally, I can start my official pokemon adventure," said Aaron to himself.

Jack hadn't woken up early that morning. Not at all. In fact, he had rolled out of bed at the last possible minute, leaving him just enough time to brush his teeth. No time was had to force a compulsory breakfast down his throat, nor to bid his parents farewell. The second he pulled his toothbrush from his mouth, he strode down the stairs and yanked the door open. Though his messy brown hair had gone unwashed, he still looked next to flawless. And it was a good thing, too. Two girls, a blonde and a redhead, stood outside his front door, each fidgeting nervously. Vaguely, he recognized them as freshman from his high school. A sly grin painted its way across his face as he slung his arms around their waists. The action elicited a small squeal from the redhead, and he turned, winking at the blonde. And that was it. Just like that, he released them and pressed forward to Professor Oak’s lab.

It was no surprise that he had been the last to arrive. Already, there were three others there. Once he joined them, someone (he wasn’t sure who) took the liberty of knocking on the door, prompting the professor to emerge from his laboratory. Immediately, he looked to Jack.

"Hello, Jack Wellington," The old man said to him. "I suppose you'd like to get right down to business. Very well. After close examination, I've decided that Eevee would be the ideal Starter Pokemon for you."

Jack blinked. He couldn’t say he expected to receive the evolution Pokémon. A Charmander, perhaps, but…wasn’t Eevee a little feminine? Lightly, he tossed the Pokéball up and down, being sure to catch it each time it plummeted towards the earth. After the other three each had a Pokéball in their hands, Oak thrust a Pokédex, along with five empty Pokéballs, towards each of them. The empty containers were deposited haphazardly into Jack’s backpack. The Pokédex made its way into his back pocket. The Eevee, however, remained firmly clenched in his fist. The old man stood before them expectantly.

“Uh…that’s it, I guess…” Jack said, looking to the professor out of the corner of his eye. Instead, he turned his attention towards the Pokéball in his hand, thumb hovering over the button in the center of the sphere. A flash of evanescent light radiated from the Pokéball, eventually taking the form of a small, brown Pokémon with a big bushy tail and long ears. A ring of long, white fur grew around its neck. Blinking, it looked up at Jack with big, circular eyes. Jack squatted, getting at eye level with the Pokémon. It looked at him shyly, wrapping its tail around its face. Though Jack wouldn’t admit it, the Eevee was kind of cute. Though, ultimately, he was somewhat disappointed with the weaker Pokémon. As Jack held one arm out, the Eevee scurried up to his shoulder, where it promptly curled up. For the first time, he made note of the fact that the Pokémon was a female.

“So, like…is that all?” He asked, turning back towards the professor, lightly scuffing his foot in the dirt.

It was 5 in the morning, and in his house Derek was already very awake and jumping up and down excitedly. "Today is the big day.. The important day.." Derek said to himself as an enormous grin appeared on his face. This was the day he was going to pay a visit to the town's Professor to receive a Pokemon. "Today... I'll get my first Pokemon from Professor Oak. I'll wonder which one it will be... Squirtle, maybe? Or it can be Bulbasaur... Well, I don't really care, as long as I get my Pokemon to start my adventure!"

He ran downstairs from his room after an hour of fantasizing on how his adventure was going to be to have a very large breakfast. He intended to start his adventure right away after he got his first Pokemon, so he thought it'd be good idea to fill up with food so he wouldn't have to eat anything until a late hour in the day. As soon as he was finished he ran to brush his teeth and grab his backpack and all the stuff he believed he was going to need. It didn't take him too long, though, and after a short while he was ready to leave.

He looked down at his watch to see the hour, believing it was already time to leave. "It's.. It's only 8:00 AM.. I can't wait!" Derek yelled out with an impatient voice tone. He couldn't remember the last time he was so excited. "I want to leave already!" he said as he stood in front of his door, deciding that he wouldn't have much to do if he left at this hour because the lab was no more than 5 minutes away.

Derek continued to wait inside his house, his eyesight fixed on a clock and counting every second that passed by.

"8:50.. That's It, I'm going now" Derek said to himself when it was the time. He waved goodbye to his mother as he got a tight hold on his backpack and made his way to Professor Oak's Pokemon Laboratory. He jogged merrily over to the large building and noticed that a few other Trainers were already waiting outside. Derek smiled to himself as he approached the group of soon-to-be trainers and just stood there waiting for Prof. Oak to open the door. ~This will be awesome~ he thought to himself as he focused on the Lab's door without making even the slightest sound.

Not one second later after 9 AM, Derek had the courage to knock on the door, causing Prof. Oak to come out and greet the group of trainers."Ah, so you must be the new Pokemon Trainers. Welcome to my lab." the Prof. said. ~Yep.. Trainers.. That's us..~ Derek thought happily as he and the other Trainers stepped in and they positioned themselves in a line.

Derek was anxious to hear what had he gotten for starter Pokemon. As Oak approached Derek and said "And you are Derek Stone, I presume?" A sweat drop drooled down his back. He placed a gargantuan smile on his face as he stretched his hand to receive his first Pokemon. The whole placed appeared to be muted to him, and the only words to be heard were "That is Pikachu. I think the two of you will get along very well."

As the Professor gave Derek the Pokeball with a Pokemon inside, Derek stared at it in awe. He couldn't beleive it. He now officially was a Pokemon Trainer. He smiled to himself as he looked up to receive a Pokedex and some Pokeballs, both of which he placed in his Pocket and around a belt. He then heard the Professor asking for questions, but Derek didn't bother asking. He was again staring down at his Pokeball. He started giving a few steps back without focusing on his path, just looking down at his Pokeball.

Professor Oak's Lab (cont.)



Professor Oak, happy that he had informed the Trainers and that they had no questions, he was very happy that such a bright young group of Trainers were beginning their Journies. They had a lot of potential, that much was certain. It was just a question of whether they would use it or not.

"Yes, that is all," He said, referring to Jack's question.

Looking at the others, he dismissed them from his lab.

"Well," The Professor told them. "You are free to go now! A world of dreams and adventures awaits with Pokemon. Get to it!"

And, just like that, he walked towards the door to his lab, letting the Trainers leave as they desired.

"Oh, and before you all take off," Oak told them. "Your best bet is probably Route 1. It is rather close by, and it leads to Viridian City. Now be off! And good luck filling that Pokedex!"

With no words after that, Oak watched as the Trainers left his lab, starting their very own, epic, Pokemon Journies.


===========================================================


Chapter 1
Route 1

OOC: This is where the game starts to get a little freeform. Basically, on your trip along Route 1 (from Pallet Town to Viridian City), you will get two "Turns", or posts. On these posts you can do ONE of the following, each:
1) Train your Pokemon (solo, against wild Pokemon, or against random Trainers)
2) Catch a wild Pokemon
3) Look for items
4) Battle each other (although this takes a considerable amount of time, since it is back and forth between posts. This is recommended right off.)
Or you can basically do any other thing you can think off. You guys can work together and team up, or "go it alone", so to speak. For any one of these things you do, however, keep in mind that the longer and more detailed your post is, the better your odds are of you performing the task successfully.

The guideline for these posts is at least a few solidly constructed paragraphs. Grammar and descriptions, as well as additional length, help a lot.

Remember, though, that you can only do ONE of those things at a time. This is why you get two posts each, so you can do more than one thing. After everybody has posted once, I will come in to decide if you guys succeeded in what you were doing or how well you did. So please, if catching wild Pokemon, don't actually catch them. Instead, just throw the Pokeball, after battling them, and I will tell you if you got it or not, based on the quality and length of your post. Enjoy! (PM me with any questions).




Description

This is a relatively short, grassy path filled with wild Pidgeys and Rattatas, who are just ready to attack new Pokemon Trainers who get in their way.

It is an afternoon's trek from Pallet Town to Viridian City.
