IMPORTANT NOTE!!: SUs are closed, but there will be a SEQUEL RP coming up after this one closes! So if you can wait until that one appears, I'd be happy to have you join!

Here's the story if you didn't see it on the other thread:
Spoiler:
Though many regions of the Pokémon have remained untouched by time, in the Katsu region everything has changed. Gyms are closed, Pokémon centers are demolished and Coordinators, Trainers, Professors and Breeders flee by the hundreds.

Signs are posted everywhere that read:
All recreational activities relating to the usage and/or involvement of Pokémon are disallowed.
Poké Balls, Potions, Stat Healers or any other Pokémon related item are to be destroyed immediately.
All Pokémon are to be delivered to a drop-off center effective immediately.
If any Pokémon is spotted or you have knowledge of any of the rules stated above being broken, please contact the authorities.

Pokémon are being deported and... disposed of at an increasing rate, rapidly depleting the native population. Riots break out and lives, Pokémon and human alike, are lost. The economy crashes, leaving people reeling for a new way of life. People are forced to give up their life-long partners and companions in order to obey the law.

Why has caused all of this to happen? The same thing that had brought them together in the first place: the natural bond between Pokémon and human. Pokémon and humans became so close to one another that there was little distinction between them. That is, until people began abusing that connection. Pretty soon, a group rose up in power and began taking advantage of both people and Pokémon. Soon they were taken down by the authorities, but they came to the conclusion that the only way to prevent further uprisings was to get rid of all the Pokémon in the region.

Pokémon are disappearing and a storm is brewing in the Katsu region...


Plot:

You are a trainer. When this change begins, you rebel against them. You attempt to save the Pokémon from extraction, but when the danger of keeping your parter increases, you run. The region is large and you find that you are lost, until you are picked up by a team called the Uprising. They take you in and train you to fight for the cause of saving the Pokémon, but with this choice comes a price. Police officers search for you, bounty hunters pursue you and a group that is on the rise has taken an interest in you...

Are you up for it?


Okay! Here's where we talk about the RP and post our rough-draft profiles!

Here it goes:

3. Only post OOC things on the OOC thread (unless separated like this and marked OOC).

... You look like you could use a few members. ^__^


Name: Maud Howll
Age: Fifteen
Gender: Female

Personality: Before really getting to know Maud, you should probably learn that she's not polite or lady-like. Like, at all. She uses slang and not-really-words words like "ain't". "Please" isn't something you'll hear from her often, and if you get a "Thank you," you're a lucky person. But she's not really all that rude, unless she's agitated. Maud can be a kind (if a bit stubborn) and helpful person when she actually finds that she cares to do so. She's a jerk as a stranger, but a decent friend and companion.

Maud is also very competitive. She loves nothing more than a challenge, and battling is undoubtedly her favorite activity. It's not really that she likes to win as much as that she loves competing alltogether. As such, she can laugh about her errors and take a loss well (though she might occassionally pretend she lost because of something like 'distractions' or 'type disadvantage'). While battling, however, she's a fast thinker, and can invent some rather clever strategies. She likes to work with each of her Pokemon's individual personalities and base battle styles off of that, making her a rather tricky foe at times.

Speaking of Pokemon, Maud seems to have a sort of connection with them. No, she's not one of those trainers who can read Pokemon thoughts and form perfect human-Pokemon bonds and such, but she has an understanding for them. Loyalty is something she values dearly in a companion, and few companions are more loyal than well-trained Pokemon. Namely, she finds that 'doglike' Pokemon tend to be more loyal and easier to befriend, which is why she specializes in raising them.


Appearance: Much like her personality would imply, Maud doesn't care for anything too nice or fancy. Besides, she's always out training and travelling. What would be the point of wearing nice clothes if you're only going to get them dirty on the road...? Using this philosophy, she figures it doesn't really matter what she's wearing and slips on a plain, cozy T-shirt with near-worn-out jeans and a simple hoodie. If she's not wearing old tennis shoes and a pair of black gloves, by the way, then that's probably an imposter of some sort rather than the actual Maud.

Likewise, her red-brown shoulder-length hair is almost always a bit of a mess (what; do you think a trainer like her has the time to brush it every day...?), and while she isn't a filthy and smelly slob she isn't the most hygenic of people. But, the life of a devoted trainer isn't always perfect and pretty and clean, you know~

Anyways, Maud is of moderate height; not tall, and definitely not short. She's not at all fat, but not super-skinny. In other words, pretty average. Her eyes are a dull green color; her skin a little bit pale.


Background: Maud had always lived in Goldenrod with her mother (her father worked so much she rarely saw him, and he didn't really seem to want much to do with her). She ate, slept, and did pretty much what most kids do in a middle-class home not far from the bustling, busy, polluted main area of the city. Her mother, however, was originally from Sinnoh. She had one Pokemon that she had trained for a while (though she gave up her Pokemon journey at the age of eleven), a Purugly, and when she sent Maud out to do simple errands like getting something from the store, she would make sure that Purugly was with her daughter. Goldenrod was a relatively safe place, but you never knew what could happen... It seemed simple to just send her out with a Pokemon just in case and avoid all worry.

How Maud obtained her own Pokemon, however, is a rather strange story. On a certain trip to pick up a carton of milk from the local convenience store, she came across a few men in black uniforms discussing something behind a shady building. Her curiosity perked up, and she decided to hide and listen to them. Judging by the uniforms, they appeared to be from Team Rocket, a group assumed to have disbanded a while back... And there was some sort of delivery truck with them. A truck full of stolen Pokeballs, containing rare or strong Pokemon. Supposedly the two strange men were going to deliver these Pokemon to be prizes at the Goldenrod Game Corner. People had been suspicious that Team Rocket was associated with the Game Corner for a while now, but if it was really true...

The men spotted her and threatened to harm her if she didn't leave immediately. Maud, however, felt some crazy and stupid sense of justice, and called out her mother's Purugly. The strongest Pokemon the Rocket members had was a Zubat, which was no trouble for the Pokemon Maud's mother had trained. Afterwords, they were forced to flee, leaving Maud to investigate the truck. In the front seat of the truck, however, were two round objects... Eggs, perhaps? She decided to notify the Goldenrod police as soon as possible, but secretly kept the 'eggs' with her.

For about a month she was famous around town for helping to put an end to the last known forces of Team Rocket in Jhoto, though her mother was outraged that she had attempted such a thing. Maud didn't really care that she was angry, though... The 'eggs' were what was really on her mind. She still kept it a secret that she had taken them, but if they really were Pokemon eggs...

When they hatched into a pair of Eevees, among all things, that settled it. Maud was going to become a trainer. Her mother thought battling and training and all was cruel and dangerous now, however, and prohibited Maud from ever doing such a thing.

So she ran away.

Maud left a simple little note for her parents, took her two little Eevees, and set off on her journey. Within the next year, she had collected seven of Jhoto's badges. Within the next four years (which she filled with lots of vigourous training), she had earned second-place in the Jhoto Pokemon League tournament. That was good enough for Maud.
She recently ventured to the Katsu region, only to find in in its current state. Maud, however, wasn't about to let people here eliminate Pokemon over such an issue as this. She was more than willing to join the Uprising, in hopes that she and her Pokemon companions could prove to these people that what they were doing was simply wrong.

Pokemon: ((No, I won't be RPing from any of their direct perspectives, though they will all be RPed just as importantly as Maud herself.))
Spoiler:

Nickname: Ann
Breed: Espeon
Gender: Female
Moves: Psychic, Morning Sun, Return, Helping Hand

Appearance: Ann resembles a normal Espeon; though she is perhaps a bit smaller and leaner than most.

Personality: Ann is a fun-loving Pokemon. She loves to play around, even in the heat of battle. She's a bit quirky, but also loyal, and can get surprisingly serious when the time calls for it. Ann also can become a ferocious force to mess with when her brother, Dan, is in danger.

History: Ann was one of Maud's two first Pokemon. She and her brother, Dan, hatched from eggs at the same time. Maud named her after the character Little Ann from one of her favorite books, Where the Red Fern Grows.

--

Nickname: Dan
Breed: Umbreon
Gender: Male
Moves: Toxic, Confuse Ray, Moonlight, Last Resort

Appearance: Dan resembles a normal Umbreon, though he is perhaps a bit more stocky and muscular than most.

Personality: Dan is rather silent, cold, and reserved. He doesn't like to show much emotion, though deep down he truly cares for and loves his companions (especially his sister). He tends to be calm and calculative in battle; while he doesn't like to cause direct harm, he can pull off nasty tricks that devestate an opponent.

History: Dan was one of Maud's two first Pokemon. He and his sister, Ann, hatched from eggs at the same time. Maud named him after the character Old Dan from one of her favorite books, Where the Red Fern Grows.

--

Nickname: Molly
Breed: Houndoom
Gender: Female
Moves: Flamethrower, Will-O-Wisp, Nasty Plot, Faint Attack

Appearance: Molly is pretty much a regular Houndoom.

Personality: Molly is a wiley creature. She has a sly air about her, and loves nothing more than pranks and tricks. She may seem like she has the 'evil' air of most Houndooms, though really she is just devious. The only person who really knows Molly's soft, loving side is... well, Maud.

History: During Maud's journey, around the time she had obtained four badges, there seemed to be some sort of pesky Pokemon stealing food and various items from her when she camped for the night. After about three days of this, Maud decided to have the recently-evolved Dan and Ann keep watch for anything suspicious. On the night this happened, she awoke to find Dan pinning down a lean little Houndour, and Ann glaring at it fiercely. The Houndour looked half-starved, actually... Figuring it had only been stealing because it needed something to eat, Maud simply smiled and offered it a piece of 'beef' jerky (let's just say it's Miltank jerky and get on with it... :P).

Eventually, seeing as the Houndour was still following her after that... Well, trying to capture it didn't seem like a bad idea. The Houndour didn't even struggle against the Pokeball, and so it was.

--

Nickname: Jester ("Jess")
Breed: Poochyena
Gender: Male
Moves: Scary Face, Taunt, Assurance, Super Fang (see History and Additional Info...)

Appearance: Jess was partially named for the odd 'checkerboard' pattern on his legs. While most Poochyenas have black paws and gray legs, the black fur on Jester's legs trails up in unique little diamond shapes. (Maud thought it made him look sort of comical, and combined with his personality the name seemed perfect.)

Personality: Jess is an oddball. He really is just plain quirky. One moment he'll be prancing playfully about, and the next he'll be trying to bite the hand of even his trainer. It's all in a playful manner, however. He doesn't really know how to act completely serious, even if the situation calls for it, and probably sees everything as a game. He also has a few strange tendencies, like nipping at the air for no apparent reason or intently trying to dig into solid ground. Pokemon doctors have suggested the idea that he may have some sort of mental disorder, actually, but Maud has always shrugged off that possibility.

History: Jess is an escapee from a Pokemon testing lab near Blackthorn City. The scientists at this lab were trying to design ways for Pokemon to become more powerful; learning moves they normally can't know and having over all more strength. They were originally testing on 'weak' Pokemon (like Pidgey, Poochyena, and Bidoof), and alterning genes to prevent their evolution; it would be stupid to test out a project like this and end up with a Super-Tyranitar or even a Super-Raticate running about destroying things. Jess' mother had been tested on, and it was hoped that her pups would be stronger than normal Poochyenas. The test was supposedly a failure, however. It's more than likely the reason for Jester's oddities.

Supposedly he escaped. That or the scientists simply abandoned the pups, finding them to be 'worthless'. Whatever the case, when Maud came across a sick-looking little Poochyena, in Jhoto of all places, she was more than willing to nurse him back to health. Maud, however, has never known Jester's true story, or where he came from at all.

Additional Info: Through some strange genetic error, Jester cannot evolve. It was strange at first, when Maud had trained him for a year and he still was not a Mightyena. But, when he was taken to a Pokemon specialist to find out about this, it was confirmed that for some reason, he can't ever be a Mightyena. All the same, Maud trains him and battles with him, and the two really don't seem to mind.

Also, Maud has discovered that he somehow knows the move 'Super Fang', which is used as a key strategy move in battles...


Additional Information: None. :D

RP Sample: From Gummy's Return of the Fallen...
Spoiler:
Kat hated crowds.

It wasn't so much that she didn't care for being around others, or that she was anti-social. Crowds were just... too many people. As such, being part of them made her feel cramped. Annoyed. Irritable. And nobody likes an irritable Katrynah. Nobody.

So, instead of plunging into the huge mass of moving and chattering and annoying Pokemon, the Pachirisu kept to the edge of it, managing to slip past others with little if any notice thanks to her small size. She hadn't been in this town long enough to get used to these meetings... In fact, it took her about five minutes to realize the ringing chime of that bell meant 'come to town square and listen to some guy talk for a while'. Kat sort of wished she hadn't remembered that when she did. Her cozy little hut was much more comfortable than these clogged streets, filled with the traffic of Pokemon bodies. Bleh.

She noticed the movement starting to come to a halt (Finally!), and blinked, realizing the crowd must have reached the square. Only... she couldn't see a thing behind all these much-taller-than-her Pokemon! Gah, she thought, not satisfied at all, If some moron is gonna drag me outta my house to yap in my ears, I should at least be able to see who the heck he is. Of course, she could always slink around this rediculous assembly of townsfolk.

Carefully slipping past a few legs and over a tail or two, Kat made her way to the very front of the crowd, a slight smirk on her face as she did so. It was so easy for her to be ignored and unnoticed if she really tried. Sometimes, she actually thought it was a blessing that she had been born a Pachirisu rather than, say, a Charizard. (All the same, she believed being a Charizard would be quite nice... The ability to fly and rain flames down upon her foes... Ahh. Now, how amazing would that be?)

"... my fellow Pokemon, that these are not natural occurrences..."

A voice caught her ears. Kat looked up to see the speaker, a Weavile, who seemed to be recieving quite a few looks from the crowd that said things along the lines of, 'Heh. You can't be serious...'

Drat. I could have missed half the meeting-speech-whatever-it-is by now... she thought in dismay. As the Weavile continued, a Breloom behind her was giggling, probably at the speaker's words. Kat whirled around, eyes blazing with anger. She wasn't in an exactly "good" mood right now.

"You. Quiet. I'm tryin' ta hear this guy," Kat spat. She didn't wait for a reply either (though she did see the Breloom close his mouth with an alarmed expression). Instead, she turned back around and continued listening to the Weavile's words.

“He says it is a sign that the dark one, Giratina, will return to free his fallen followers and wage war once again. This brings me to my main point. I call upon all brave warriors to meet on the northwestern outskirts of Little Hillmoss Town. The time for waiting is over, so we much act! And that is why I’m calling for a small battalion to aid me in finding and destroying the fallen ones.”

Now Kat realized what everyone was so humored by... Giratina, huh? Right... Good luck convincing people by preaching that. The truth was, many Pokemon didn't believe that the Legendary Pokemon still -or ever had - power over the world. In fact, some didn't even believe the Legendaries existed at all! Kat was among those who were skeptical as to what Legendary Pokemon really had control over. That, however, wasn't what concerned her. She'd caught a bit about the quakes and disasters in the Weavile's speeh...

A mountain. A gigantic, towering mountain. A symbol of strength and pure, untamed nature. Plummeting to the ground; scatterering into a million pieces. And, all of those pieces sliding down a hill, into a village... Homes destroyed. Lives ruined. Pokemon dead. All in one instant... All in one trembling quiver of the Earth itself...

That was what got to her. Kat had seen a mountain tumble and crumble to pieces at the mercy of these quakes. She'd seen towns destroyed by them. Pokemon killed. Effort and lifestyles shattered. And she'd actually believed it was just around her hometown, too... But then, she came out here, and what do you know? Quakes. Whatever this was, it was definately abnormal. Now, Kat didn't immediately jump to the conclusion that Legendary Pokemon were to blame, but she felt she was a lot smarter than all these Pokemon insisting that it had to be 'the Earth going through changes'. That was a pethetic excuse, and everyone knew it. This was serious. And she cared enough to do something about it, in one way or another. Besides... What better did she have to do? Sit around here waiting for the next stupid town meeting?

"Hey," Kat said, approaching the Weavile (seeing as the crowd was clearing away). "I'm in. And don't say something like, 'Oh, you're just a tiny Pachirisu'. That stuff doesn't work on me, and you're only looking stupid if ya' start patronizing me 'cause of my size. Got it?"

She didn't care what he said in reply, or, honestly, if he replied at all. So long as this guy knew she wasn't one of those cute, huggable, fluffy little Pokemon that never did anything but stand around looking sickeningly adorable, she was perfectly content with him.

That was a great sign up You may post it under the main thread.
You are accepted, so now I have to ask you if you want your character to already be a part of the group or want to join at the beginning of the story.
Also, can you tell me a bit more about about Super Fang? You don't have to post it on your signup, I would just like to know

I was thinking she'd have already been part of the Uprising for a short time; not very long, but yeah. She'll be with them when it starts.

And, basically (by game mechanics) SuperFang halves the foe's current HP. As in, it won't KO in two hits; if a Pokemon at full HP is SuperFang'd, the HP goes to 50%. Use it again, and it goes to 25%; 12.5%; et cetera. It can't actually be used as a finishing move, though; at 1HP it does nothing. Normally only rodent Pokemon like Ratatta learn it, but I figured... Poochyena has fangs, so it could be possible with the testing-lab thing...

OK this is my first time in a RP, but ill give it a shot


Name: Drake Wolfston
Age: Thirteen
Gender: Male

Appearance:

Clothing: You will almost always find Drake wearing a t-shirt with a vest or shirt over it. The vest/shirt has ragged, cut up sleeves, is very thin, and mostly black. He wears jeans most of the time, but on hot days you can see him wearing shorts. The jeans are also ragged and cut up at the edges and knees. He always wears his Nike-Airs whereever he goes.

Formal: At school dances etc. he will just wear polo's with the same type of jeans, as they are his favorite, and has personally made sure all of them are cut up.

Physical Appearance:
He has a strong, sleek build, but isnt too muscular. His hair is black and spiky, and hair gell is slathered all over it. His skin colour is tinted, and if you look closely you can see distant scars on his face from previous fights. He has dark brown eyes, with long eyelashes, thick brows. and he hasnt grown any facial hair yet.

Personality: As shown in the appearance, Drake seems to be the "cool" type of guy, with a lot of friends, and very popular. He is popular indeed, but Drake has another reason to act cool. At home Drake is a loving brother who doesnt act cool at all. He is very close with his family, and he cares for the pokemon at his family's ranch. He uses the cool act just because he is mainly shy, and thinks his friends wont like him for that. He is too shy to ask the girl he had always loved for a date, and therefore acts even more cool and distant. You can mostly see Drake sitting in the corner of the hall, or on a balcony thinking deeply to his self. It might not seem like it, but he has a funny character. Whenever he hangs with his friends he's always the one who makes the jokes.

Drake doesnt talk too much, and as said before is very shy, but he is very playfull and his mouth keeps running off at home. He is very gentle and caring with the pokemon at his ranch, but he never shows his friends. Therefore his friends feel that he has a kind of mysterious aura around him. Even tough he is very shy, he is mostly competitive. He always challenges his friends in everything, but when it comes to championships his shyness wins, and so he doesnt enter. He's scared of being the center of attention, and that is what kept him from enter contests with his ranch pokemon before pokemon had to be handed in.

Background: Drake comes from a family who had secretly protested, and had a hidden ranch down in the nearby forest of syphoon city. You cant call it a city as it isnt even on the map, and the closest town to that was little root town which was eight miles away. Drake doesnt really have a pokemon, but later he will take their pichu. Not much special is known about Drake, as he yet has to make history.

He was born with the ranch, and therefore was attatched to every single pokemon there. Whenever he wasnt spending time at his ranch he would hang out with his friends in the village. Most of the time his family was at the ranch, and sometimes they even slept there. Tough on certain nights Drake would find his dad slipping out the back of the house, and the next day there would be articles about the protestors vandilating the major cities. Drake had always wondered if is dad had something to do with that, but whenever he asked, his dad would always change the subject. His dad didnt understand anything. He wanted to stop the uprising, he wanted to protect his beloved pokemon on the ranch, and he will do something about it!

How he gets his pichu will be revealed below

RP Sample: Well since this is my first RP, this might not have to do with the storyline but i guess you can calls this a prologue for the story


"Ring, Ring" Drake woke up to find his alarm clock ringing. Half asleep, he tried to hit his alarm clock, but missed and ended up rolling out of his bed. "urgh..." With a jolting pain in his head he stood up and walked to the shower.

After a nice and refreshing shower he got his usual clothes, and put on seven sprays of cologne. He peered down the stairs and saw his mom making breakfast. "Hi sweety!". Drake felt embarrased but it was ok, this was his home. He ran downstairs to see what was for breakfast. He grabbed some of the eggs his mom just made and ran outside to check on the ranch.

Two minutes later he arrived at the ranch. Their ranch was hidden deep in the forest, and the only thing left in their small village that had to do with pokemon. He snuck through the tunnel and looked around, his eyes full with joy. His dad and sister were feeding the pokemon on the other side of the ranch, Drake would greet them later. A pichu ran over and hugged his legg. Drake picked it up and put it on his shoulder while walking to the stalls. The ponyta there ran across the stalls to meet him. He hugged every single one of them and gave them breakfast. He couldnt believe that having pokemon wasnt allowed he loved all of his pokemon, especially little eevee. What maniac's would want to give away their pokemon? But deep deep down he knew that soon this ranch would also be discovered, and they would go to jail. He decided to take a stroll around the city to get rid of his worries.

After a good ten minute walk he decided to visit his old shool. He looked through he window to find his old class mates writing down some notes. Drake quit school to take care of his ranch, and even if he wanted to stay, his Dad forced him to not go. At school there were agents, he did not know what for, but whoever had a pokemon was taken away.As he was about to go away, he heard the bushes rustling and something jumped on him. He twisted aroud and tried to kick it, but it clung onto his face. He was just about to call for help when he noticed it was just pichu. He scolded the little guy for coming out here, but his tracking skills were pretty amazing. He looked at pichu's cute little face, he just couldnt even think of what would happen if this little pichu got into the wrong hands. Now he knew what he had to do, finally he had a purpose. He would make sure those people would never get their pokemon! He just couldnt even think of what would happen if this little pichu got into the wrong hands. Drake ran home again while hiding pichu under his jacket, he was gonna pack, and leave. He didnt know where, but as he was thinking of his journey, he didnt know there were two shady figures, watching him from the top of the school.

Please edit his physical appearance, because it doesn't make much sense to me at this point. Also, can you add something about what really drove him to run off and join the Uprising? Also, in the future can you spell out numbers instead of, well, using the numbers? It's just a little pet-peeve of mine... Also, watch out for spelling

Once you make the changes, your post is accepted and you may post it under the main thread

Here's my character profile! Wow, I can't believe I didn't post it right away... anywho!


Name: Isabel Joy Evans (people call her an assortment of names... Is, Sabe, Joy, Eva or Evans, but very rarely do people call her Isabel)

Age: 16

Gender: female

Appearance: Isabel is about five feet seven inches and is sturdily built. She has coal-black hair with one streak each of yellow, red, purple, gold and green which she usually wears down or tied back in a bun. She has piercing icy-blue eyes that shine in contrast against her suntanned skin. Isabel is usually found wearing a zip-up black sweatshirt with a dark blue camisole underneath and nearly-black jeans. She usually wears plain running shoes or black boots on her feet. She is always wearing a bracelet with beads of all colors on her wrist.

Personality: Isabel usually seems like a calm person, and that's just what she wants you to think. In reality, she is constantly searching for any sign of a threat and is always reading and calculating the expressions and tones of others. The facade of calm collectiveness is easily shattered by a sign of danger or mistreatment toward Pokemon. Isabel is a very intelligent person and, though she is not very social, she knows how to work answers out of someone and manipulate them for her own needs.
Isabel has always loved Pokemon. In battle, she is very much a strategist and seldom takes it easy on any trainer. She is constantly developing new strategies in her head and putting them into practice, so there are very few things she does the same with every battle. She loves to push her Pokemon and herself and enjoys going through ups and downs with her companions and can't imagine living her life without them.

Background: Isabel has lived with Pokemon her entire life in the Katsu region. Her family used to breed and raise Evees to sell to trainers as parters and others as pets. But when Pokemon began being extracted from the Katsu region, their business was shut down. One by one their Evees and Evee evolves were taken away by the authorities, leaving them without income. Isabel's father soon found work in law enforcement, as that was the fastest growing career, but her older brother Rick refused to give up his Pokemon and ran away.
Isabel waited and watched as her life-long companions were taken away until she could no longer take it. Isabel took six Pokemon and left: Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon and an Evee. She proceeded to travel through the region and found that all other places in the region had received the same order to get rid of the Pokemon. She did all that she could to help the Pokemon: she intercepted got her hands on any Pokemon that was due for extraction as she could and released them into the forests, but she soon realized that in order to really help she would need to become organized. So she started the Uprising and went off in search of trainers who also wanted to save their Pokemon in hopes that together they could help to stop the movement and restore balance in the Katsu region.

RP Sample: well, I started the RP, so I suppose I don't need to post one

Pokémon (I will be writing from their perspectives as well)
Spoiler:
Nickname: Isabel usually just calls him Jolteon, but sometimes she calls him Jay

Breed: Jolteon

Gender: male

Moves: Iron Tail, Thunder, Giga Impact, Last Resort

Appearance: Jay looks like any other Jolteon with the exception of a grey front left paw and the fact that its eyes are a deep blue color.

Personality: Jay is a very rash Pokemon and definitely believes that the only way to battle is to directly inflict as much damage as possible. If he thinks that he is right, he will even go as far as to disobey Isabel in battle.

History: This Jolteon was originally her father's Pokemon, but Isabel took him with her when she ran away so that he wouldn't be extracted.


Nickname: is just called Flareon

Breed: Flareon

Gender: female

Moves: Iron Tail, Fire Blast, Hyper Beam, Last Resort

Appearance: its paws and muzzle are a very dark red, but otherwise it looks like any other Flareon

Personality: Flareon is a surprisingly gentle Pokemon, until she gets into battle. She will go right up into her opponent's face and do as much damage as possible regardless of the damage inflicted upon herself. But outside of battle, she acts very gentle and friendly toward other Pokemon and will act as a mother toward younger Pokemon.

History: Flareon was just one of the many Evees they raised in their home and was the only one that changed into a Flareon. Isabel decided to take her along for that reason.


Nickname: Fay

Breed: Espeon

Gender: Female

Moves: Iron Tail, Psybeam, Hyper Beam, Last Resort

Appearance: Fay has an even longer and sleeker build than most Espeons, making her even more swift.

Personality: Fay is a very calm Pokemon, only resorting to brute strength as a last resort. She is incredibly intelligent and knows just what you are thinking and about to do. She is incredibly powerful in battle and usually will not show mercy on an opponent. Fay is usually used as a distraction when there is a need for escape.

History: Fay is actually originally Isabel's first Pokemon. Isabel raised her from the time she was an Evee and now Fay is the one taking care of Isabel.


Nickname: Umi

Breed: Umbreon

Gender: Female

Moves: Iron Tail, Dark Pulse, Hyper Beam, Last Resort

Appearance: Umi looks like every other Umbreon except that in the middle of every circle on her body there is a small golden star.

Personality: Umi has a dark personality that matches her type. She is quick to be angered and finds all other Pokemon to be inferior to her. She is utterly ruthless in battle and shows absolutely no mercy, sometimes to the extent of not stopping when the opponent has fainted, which is why Isabel does not commonly battle with her. She will disobey Isabel when given the chance, but is usually very loyal to her (and very protective).

History: Umi was one of Isabel's favorite Evees, but when Umi evolved and her personality changed, Isabel didn't spend as much time with her. Isabel took her along because she couldn't stand to leave Umi and she knew that her power was desperately needed.


Nickname: Lum

Breed: Leafeon

Gender: male

Moves: Iron Tail, Leaf Blade, Giga Impact, Last Resort

Appearance: Lum looks like any other Leafeon except that his leaves change color with the seasons and the weather.

Personality: Lum is one of the most stubborn Pokemon you will ever meet. He almost never listens to everything Isabel tells him and usually just goes off and does whatever he wants. In battle he is solely focused on his target, which leaves him vulnerable to indirect attacks.

History: Lum was stubborn as an Evee and it just got worse when he evolved. The only reason Isabel took him along is because he was one of the more powerful Pokemon they raised.


Nickname: Eve

Breed: Evee

Gender: female

Moves: Iron Tail, Take Down, Shadow Ball, Trump Card

Appearance: Eve looks like any other Evee with the exception of her eyes, which change color in accordance to which Evee evolve is around or what the environment is like.

Personality: Eve is a tomboy. She is always trying to prove herself to the Evee evolves, but they never take her seriously. She obeys Isabel in battle, but is a major showoff.

History: Eve was the only Evee left in their home by the time Isabel decided to leave, so she took her as well.

Okay, the only thing I have to say is that in the future try to watch spelling and punctuation (it's fine for the sign-up) and that the Uprising is what the group fighting the Pokemon extraction is ^.^ other than that your character profile is ready to be posted under the main thread.

Join Date: Nov 2005
Gender: Female
Nature: Timid
Name: Ashelin Elisi Linette Rouse
Age: 13
Gender: Female
Appearance:
”DON’T CALL ME SHORT.”

But, unfortunately, while she does protest ungodly loudly at the very notion of being referred to as something short and adorable, Lisi is indeed very very short. Standing at only 107cm, she stands at the average height, not to mention the slightly under average weight, of a seven year old and people tend not to let her forget it. She's near constantly confused for a seven year old and while it frustrates her, it honestly doesn't surprise her. With big round bright purple eyes that are just too cute to ignore and waist length pretty-pretty-princess pink hair that’s almost always up in two adorable little pigtails that bounce with each step, even if she doesn’t want them to, each tied with a bright pink ribbon, it’s the only way to keep the hair out of her eyes you see, she looks like a little doll that people tend to want to gobble up and coddle with kisses and hugs and dress her up in all sorts of little outfits, just to oo and aw over how cute she is. Even when her pale arms are flailing and there could very well be steam coming out of her ears, some people just never learn and she tolerates them as best as she can without maiming some somewhat innocent bystanders.

As far as for what she wears when people aren’t shoving her into cute little dresses, she prefers to wear an outfit consisting of black tights under a knee length white tube-like dress with black highlighting lines running from her neck to her knees in a fashionable sort of way under a white outlined black-on-the-inside short sleeved cape that fastens at an emperor waistline. The cape itself, black on the outside, white on the inside, extends down to the ankles of her white metal toed boots. On the back of the cape itself, in bright pink embroidery, is a ragged broken heart.
Personality:
There are two sides to Elisi. While she doesn't have multiple personality disorder, she has two definite nearly separate sides to her personality. We'll call them Ashlien and Lisi for simplicity's sake.

Ashlien: The sweet natured child who helped all and questioned nothing those older than her told her was right or wrong, or some task she needed to preform at their command, or anything along those lines. She would simply nod, smile and or salute and totter off to do as she'd been told. She never complained, never argued, never once talked back. Sure, sometimes she might doubt what she'd been told but unless there was a physical threat, she'd never voice her problem. Sweet and nurturing, the calm little child never once raised her voice and was considered a princess of sorts in her hometown and had no true enemies. Easily excited by shinies and weapons, she gushes over such things with a hyper twinkle in her eyes and a skip to her step and will stalk you until you hand them over.

Lisi Quiet. That's the first thing one thinks about when dealing with this girl. Nearly mute, Lisi hardly speaks except when spoken to and, depending on the person who's speaking to her, it may be in a sarcastic Lisi tone or a tone very similar to the dormant Ashlien within her. She instead speaks with her eyes, communicating through glares and looks and only engages in speaking verbally if she's spoken to and she deems it nessacary to verbally respond. However, the one exception to this is her newfound temper. Lisi only began to emerge somewhat recently, after the incident, and has a tendency to completely take over to the point the tender shy Ashlien that peeks through at the best of times is shoved into a box post marked for the Whirl Islands when her anger is flared. She will become a completely sadistic little kitten who hurts any and all in her path and maintains a light bubbly personality in the process. She cares only for a few select individuals and everyone else just gets eaten. Litterally. Don't piss her off to that point, it's just a bad idea.

Background: [x.x; please don't hurt me I'll add this tomorow, I'm absolutely exhausted...]

Additional Information: Her two sides are completely uncontrollable, she can't be innocent like Ash unless something deep within her core is triggered.

RP Sample: [Taken from fragments of alarayne. Go lookit if you need more samplage. :3]
Spoiler:
Mika let out a soft sigh, shaking her head, her shoulders falling once the other had crossed into the elevator, closing her eyes for a moment before she straightened herself up. Something inside told her that that girl, that Parse, was going to cause some problems down the road. The respect was at a professional level only, that much was clear, but beyond that… it was the same old thing. Rubbing her forhead, she turned, offering a forced but vaguely so smile at the others, waving her hand lightly, “I’m going to get my own things, I’ll meet up with you later, alright? Meet down a few floors, at the underground train transport. It’s easy to find.”

Pressing the up button, she entered into the elevator alone and rode up, watching the lights softly, her hand pressing against the glass. Her expression blank, she looked towards her shoes for a moment, tapping the toe into the metal flooring as the elevator groaned, wretching loudly as it reached its destination, the infirmary. Stepping out, she sent the elevator back down, erasing its knowledge of where she’d gone. Wandering down the brightly lit white hallway, past the nurses and doctors and orderlies scurrying about, she fished her id out of her pocket, her hand shaking slightly as she pulled it out, the motion causing it to fall from her hand to the floor. Stumbling just a little, she slipped to her knees to get it, pressing her palms into the tile before pushing down, rising back up and brushing the dust from her knees. Rubbing the back of her neck, she let out a soft hiss before walking forward, to the intensive car unit and after taking a sharp right, came to a door at the end of the hall with a restricted sign over head. Reaching to the control panal on the right, she tapped in a six digit code, causing a card reader to slide out from underneath from out of the wall. Sliding the black bar of her ID across the reader, it blinked a few times before it spit out a green color and the door, groaning and hissing, slid open, letting the girl pass.

The room inside was dark and silent aside from the soft beeping of machines. Her left hand snaking over to rub softly at right, she wandered across the room, flicking on the light above the sink before turning and walking to the foot of the bed of the patient. He was in his late twenties, the ventilator covering half his seemingly peaceful and otherwise healthy face and had what one just by looking at him would consider shoulder length fire red hair, probably long as a result from the prolonged intubation. Covered in various medical wires and connected to all sorts of odd looking colorful machines that she really didn’t understand, she slipped out of her jacket, hanging it on the back of the poorly colored badly upholstered visitor’s chair before her fingers slid across the cool metal of the bed and down to the chart holder, wrapping her hand around the plastic clipboard that held his chart. As the beeps proved his lungs still forced air thru his body and the chart she was flipping through in her hands proved his brain was still functioning, it was obvious to anyone that he was in a coma. Sighing, she let the chart fall with a clang into the holder and crossed to the left side, taking his soft pale hand into her own two, biting on her lip softly as it was still twice the size of her own. Closing her eyes, she lifted it to her cheek, rubbing it softly before she let it drop, sitting down on the edge of the bed, her hands spread on either side, her legs swinging lightly over the edge.

“It’s been awhile since I saw you last, isn’t it? You’ll have to forgive me… I’ve been busy and they wouldn’t let me see you for awhile for some stupid reason, you know?” She sighed, tilting her head back and to the right, to look down at him, giggling softly, “You’d better be proud of me, I’ve been given another unit to direct. All the executives, all of us Gems. Your…old unit. They’ve given it to me, funny isn’t it?” Closing her eyes, she turned towards the ceiling, reopening her eyes slowly, staring at the wind chime on the ceiling, “They didn’t take that thing down… I brought that back for you, after my first trip all by myself. You gave me a hug and said you’d put it right up on your window. I was so mad, there’s no wind down there, how would you hear it’s pretty sound? But you just…laughed and said you’d make it so the fan or the air would hit it.” Flopping backwards, she let her hands dangle above her head for a moment, a deep sigh slipping from her lips, “I’m worried, Onii-chan… I’m worried. Kain said we’ll run into the G-Men, it’s a near absolute 100% fact… And… And since Koji deflected, after what happened…do you think we’ll run into him? I do. I don’t know what I’ll do, if we run into him. He, Raven… they’re… my family you know? You always thought it was cute, me having two strong boys to guard me. Well, what am I supposed to do now?”

Gasping, she lifted a hand to her face, pulling it away, the glistening moisture on the back of her hand causing her to laugh as the arm flopped back next to her, “I’m the Emerald, the Chosen. I don’t have time to waste on tears.” Sighing, she sat up, putting her face in her hands for a moment, “I’m almost sure one of them is a double agent but… to be honest I can’t tell who. I have to trust in my team for them to respect me as a leader but.. I can’t give out too much information. They can’t have an edge over me, you know?” Standing, she walked over to the head of the bed, her hand running along the edge of his lukewarm face before she bent over, kissing the other’s forehead softly before she turned, took her coat and, as she was about to leave, looked back at him once more, “…Please wake up soon Onii-chan… Please…? I…I need you. More than you could ever know.” Shaking her head, she opened the door with a hiss and stepped out, the room falling dark as its sole visitor returned to the land of lights.

Biting her lip, she returned to the elevator and went down to her room. Changing into her standard travel attire, a pair of jeans and a black t-shirt with a graphic of two dragon wings on the back and a pair of knee-high white and black striped socks with a black toe and heel under a pair of black flat-soled skateboarder shoes with a chibi pichu emblem on the side, and, after neatly folding the basic clothing items and packing them into her bag along with the supplies one might need on a trip, she slung the black sling back over her left shoulder and attached her pokebelt to her waist, letting it hang just slightly off her black studded belt that held her pants up so as not to be immodest. Taking the key from her dresser, she attached it back around her neck and, after squeezing it, pulled her hair out and spun it into two tight low ponytails below each ear. Taking a last look in the mirror to make sure she looked fine and there wasn’t a hair out of place, she exited her room and left, heading down to the underground a good hour early, pulling out a book as she waited on the empty platform. Nobody else should be here for at least thirty minutes, well, except for Seras but the girl who ate dragons could be ignored for the time being. Time to catch up on some reading.

[meanwhile, somewhere in the Indigo Plateau Region]

“Mad’am Champion? There’s a call for you on line four.” The blonde secretary peeked her head into the purple office of the Sinnoh champion, a soft meek tone in her voice, “Sorry to disturb you… “

The blonde turned, raising an eye softly, “Mm? It’s quite alright Melody… did they say who it was?”

She blinked, blushing softly, “Something about a mountain climbing expedition? I was confused but the little brat-I mean girl wouldn’t tell me who she was…”

A coy smile spread across the blonde’s face and, closing her eyes for a moment, she let out a soft gentle laugh, “Alright little one, you’re obviously dying to tell me something if you’re talking nonsense… Melody, it’s simply Parse. Don't worry about it.”

“Oh. That little wench?” Her face turned into a sneer, “She’s an ungrateful little-“

“Genious who will bring back our princess to us. Now, if you would leave so I may talk to her…?”

“Hmph. Little wench…” Shutting the door, the sound of stomping four inch heels echoed thru the hall. Unable to stifle a chuckle, Cynthia reached a lacy hand towards the phone, picking it up and pressing a button, “Yes Parse? How may the Mt Silver Expedition Team assist you today?”

[Question on the Pokemon, is there a minimum number, and, prehaps, could one possibly be a shiny? Just curious as I'm rather obsessed with pink at the moment and I want a pink pokemon that's not.. an ugly pink pokemon. If no, I'll redo my poke-team o.O But I thought I'd ask and stuffers]

What you currently have posted looks fine, but please wait until you have it all up and approved before you post it on the main thread.

The minimum Pokemon number is one and the maximum is six. You may have one shiny Pokemon... if you make a point of saying that it is not a common-looking one.

Nature: Sassy
Name: Josh Charkewycz

Age: 15

Gender: Male

Appearance: He is around 5'11", but with a slightly sturdy build. He has short-ish blonde hair, that is almost always messy. His skin is slightly tanned, which makes his calm blue eyes stand out a bit. He usually wears a plain white t-shirt, navy blue three-quarters with a crimson stripe down one side and white trainers.

Personality: Josh is usually a very calm and confident person, who loves helping ou his friends. Whenever people fall out, he will try his best to stop them. Despite this he does have temper problems, and if anyone offends him he could snap at any minute.

However, when seperated from his pokemon, he becomes a quite person, with no confidence and is scared of everything.

Background: Josh comes from a rich family, who always had a hatred for Pokemon. They were always trying to sperate him from his Butterfree, but he wouldn't allow them. When the new laws were passed that all Pokemon were to be deported, His parents were over the moon. They tried to force him to hand over his Pokemon but he refused. His parents called the authorities, and so he ran away. Hiding in a forest, he was pursued by many Bounty Hunters, but he managed to evade them all. One day he met with Isabel Evans, who told him about the Uprising, and so he joined in hope that Pokemon would be saved.

RP Sample:

Josh was sitting in his room, playing with Twilight (His Butterfree). They were playing catch, with a ball that resembled Caterpie.

"I don't know why my parents don't like you," he said to Twilight, "I mean you're like the most adorable thing ever." There was a loud rap on the door, and his parents entered.

"You better read this!" said his father, handing him a piece of paper. Josh took it from his fahter, and stared at the page. When he read it his skin went pale. It said:

'All recreational activities relating to the usage and/or involvement of Pokémon are disallowed.
Poké Balls, Potions, Stat Healers or any other Pokémon related item are to be destroyed immediately.
All Pokémon are to be delivered to a drop-off center effective immediately.
If any Pokémon is spotted or you have knowledge of any of the rules stated above being broken, please contact the authorities.'

He glanced at his parents, then grabbed Twilight and jumped for his window. His parents, anticipating this went to grab him. When they were almost upon him, he changed direction and bolted out his door.

"Hello, is that the authorities," said his mother on the phone, "Good, because my son is breaking the new law, and we need you to get his Butterfree."

He hurried down the stairs, tears in his eyes, because of his parents reporting him.

"Goodbye!" he whispered to all in the house, and fled into the forest.


Sign Up: Pokémon

Nickname: Twilight (Twi)

Breed: Butterfree

Gender: Female

Moves: Tackle, Confusion, Sleep Poweder, Bug Bite

Appearance: Like all Butterfrees, but with Blue Eyes

Personality: Calm and relaxed, but can be quite moody. Can't stand being seperated from Josh

History: Josh found Twilight in his back garden, as a Caterpie when he was 5, and the two bonded quite quickly.

DrAcO_ToRpEdO: do you want your character to be in the group when it starts, or join early on in the story?

Mika: yeah, I assumed you wouldn't but I just kind of have to say it for everyone ^.^ and do you want your character to do be in the group when it starts or join in over the course of the story?

Charky-101: For future sign-ups you might want to make the paragraphs longer, but I'm not picky so you're accepted. And also, watch which words you capitalize on the main thread (here it doesn't matter) because Pokemon and such are capitalized, but words like Rich and Skin don't (am I being blunt? I'm sorry). Also, I'm assuming your character has already joined when the story started, but is that what you intended?

wolfsrain23: in my RP, nobody really has to reserve a spot because there is always and excuse as to why your character wasn't there at the beginning . I will, however, make sure to wait until your character profile is posted before starting.

Ok, I'll remeber to do that!
I don't think that you're being blunt, it's just something that I tend to do, but I can restrain myself.
And yes, that's what I intended.
Thankyou for Accepting.

Name:
Stephen O'Shea


Age:
15


Gender:
Male


Appearance:
Stephen, at just under 5”7, isn't really that tall, but he's not short. He gets his Gray eyes from his father, who has them too. His Caesar cut, Brown hair shocked his family, because for twelve generations, all the males had Black hair. He is able to maintain a healthy weight by traveling a lot. As for musle mass, he doesn't have much. He just stays healthy; he doesn't go the 'extra mile' and build excess muscle mass.

His favorite outfit to weat consists of Red Polo shirt, and a pair of denim trousers. His parents look down on his for his choice of dress, but that, as usual, doesn't stop him. In the way of shoes, he wears Black Athletic shoes.


Personality:
Stephen believes that friendship is a commitment that you have to be sure you're ready to commit to. As such, it is hard for him to consider someone a 'friend' quickly. Mainly, to him, they're merely allies toward a common goal. But, if he gets to spend a lot of time with that person, he can start to reciprocate feelings of friendship.

His intelligence defines his personality. He is very analytical, and he enjoys thinking of tactics he could use in later battles. It's made him value following his head over his heart, which sometimes leads to letting down his friends. He enjoys watching battles and seeing the techniques of others, and predicting their tactics to win against whomever their opponent is.

He likes being in groups; he enjoys his accomplishments but not the recognition. In groups, he can 'blame' it on the entirety of the group, and not his personal infulence.

He has a very laid-back personality, and dislikes to fight seriously. He enjoys watching his Pokémon grow, and perfect new appeals that he makes up, but he can't stand to see them hurt. To him, his Pokémon are even more important as friends than humans. They've been his friends longer, more faithfully, and he depends on their compliance to being trained to do what he loves. His Pokémon enjoy being with him, because he took classes in Pokémon Breeding, so he knows how to take care of them, prepare food, and they get hungry, he'll gladly go hungry to let them eat. His approach to catching Pokémon is, well, different. If he finds a Pokémon he likes, he follows It around and tries to get it to trust him. He never battles it, it just comes willingly or not at all. He loves music, and is an okay singer. Not great, but okay. He likes to call out his Pokémon and have them make 'music' by interacting with the environment while he sings.

He couldn't live without his PokéComm, Pokémon Communicator, which his father's company invented. It acts as a wireless internet hookup, map, video phone, and a GPS. He's very into technology, and it has evolved into a Psychological 'Need'. Depending on what he thinks about someone, he can be nice and courteous, or malicous and rude.

At times, he can be quite cynical, and disregard others' oppinions, but other times be can very considerate. Also, he dislikes not getting his way; failure and not being the leader bother him. While these things bother him, he does not let them stop him, and does not let it show.

He likes being in groups; he enjoys his accomplishments but not the recognition. In groups, he can 'blame' it on the entirety of the group, and not his personal infulence.

Despite his sheltered upbringing, or maybe because of it, he's not naïve when it comes to people's intentions. Just the opposite; he's very empathetic.

Background:
Growing up in LaRousse City, Stephen is highly accustomed to technology. He was born into a wealthy family, and mostly lived a sheltered life. He was home-schooled by some of the best tutors from around the world, bought everything he ever wanted, and he never left the safety that was his home, except to go into their large yard. His parents went out a lot, so he eventually got curious.


So, after a particularly long argument with his mother, he got to go out with them. As they walked around the city, he is amazed, not by anything about the city, but by the people. Living such a sheltered life had deprived him of the sensory overload that was a crowd of people. Soon enough, he saw a boy, about his age, crying. He approaches the kid, and asks what was wrong.


It turns out the kid was crying because his parents both recently lost their job, and soon they'd loose their home. A lack of money seemed completely strange to Stephen, for whom money had never been a problem, and, it was this kid's problem, not his. But, something about this kid made him want to talk to him, something that he'd never experienced with his family, their employees, and his tutors. They continued talking, cautiously, for a few minutes. He'd just finished cheering the child up when his mom grabbed him by the arm and dragged him home.


After that experience, Stephen was restless. He'd experienced actually wanting to talk to someone. He knew he was missing something, but couldn't figure out what it was, for a few weeks, at least. One night, he escaped. He went back into town, and found that kid again. This time, the child's face was dirty, and he had company, two adults.


When he got there, he gave the child some of the money he'd been given earlier that day, to help them out. He neglected to notice the parents eying him shiftily. After the little boy thanks him, he got up to go back home. But, he didn't make it there that night. The parents, enticed by the prospect of a wealthy family and more wealth, held him captive. It wasn't as bad as it sounds, though, he just stayed there. He knew they wouldn't hurt him fi he didn't try to escape, they needed the money. But, he was still afraid of what they might do if he did try. Despite the captive situation, he talked to their son. Their son said it wasn't pre-meditated, that they jut needed the money.


The next night, his parents paid the ransom and Stephen returned home. Stephen returned not just with the experience from the situation, but he knew what he'd been missing. Contact, communication. He'd experienced it, and now he couldn't get enough. Throughout the next few days, he constantly tried to get his parents to let him go out and talk to people again. But, as any sensible parent would, they declined his proposal. They did, however, get so irritated with him that they gave in, if only a little. They went to the local Pet Store, and bought him a little black bird-thing called Murkrow.


Even though he was dissapointed that he hadn't truly got his way for the first time, he still enjoyed his new Murkrow. He named it Karma, and they bonded. Even if it wasn't human interaction, it was still interaction, contact, communication. Basically what he lacked.


Years later, he started his journey with Karma. He quickly noticed he had little enthusiasm for collecting badges, so he took a different route, which he enjoyed greatly. He became a Co-Ordinator. He traveled around Hoenn participating in contests, all the while catching Pokémon. Even so, by the time he got the Grand Festival, he only had three; Karma, a Milotic, and a Spinda. He was an okay Co-Ordinator, so he got past the preliminaries, but lost in his first battle. This didn't deter him. He left Milotic and Spinda at home and traveled even further from home, to Sinnoh.


The Sinnoh contests, though different, still appealed to him, and he exceeded in them too. By the grand festival, he had four Pokémon. Karma, now a Honchkrow, Mime Jr, Gabite, and Ambipom. This time, he got into the Top Eight.


After his success at Sinnoh, he took a break at home for a while. Not too long, though, because after about six months, he traveled to the Katsu region because he heard it had contests similar to Sinnoh. But, by the time he got there, the Pokémon Extraction Crisis was already underway.

RP Sample:
Rex, still in a daze, was pushed to the cold, cement ground by the Black-uniformed men, hitting his head. Despite the minor head trauma, he knew what was going to happen next, but hoped he was wrong, or that he would be saved. Sadly, he wasn't. The men grabbed his Poké Balls, and everything in his pack. But, they didn't stop there. They released a Butterfly-like Pokémon, Butterfree, and ordered it to use Sleep Power; an order it reluctantly obeyed.

When Rex woke up, he first noticed he was in a small, dark room with. But, the instant he processed that, he noticed something else; the cold. It had to be about 30°F! He sat in the cold and darkness, contemplating, for hours. He mourned for his now-empty belt, and about his own plight. He revisited the last twenty-four hours many times, until he had the meaningless, monotonous events memorized.

During one of these sessions, his new 'home' was disrupted by an intense flooding of light. At first, after sitting in total darkness for so long, he still couldn't see despite the light. Soon, though, his eyes adjusted, and he saw him. The man he blamed for his misfortune, Seth; the man who'd forced him to go ahead, further into the forest, away from the path. But, now, he realized, was not the time to hate Seth, that could wait. He realized Seth was alone, so he hadn't been captured, which meant he was rescuing him.

Seth turned his pale face toward Rex, and he did something Rex would never have expected; grinned. Not a friendly, “I-found-you” grin, but a maniacal, evil one. Then Rex knew. Knew everything. It hadn't been an accident that they'd been waiting for him further up the trail, Seth told them to be there. Seth wasn't here to help him escape, he was here to gloat about another Team Rocket victory.

Are the accommodations we've provided... adequate?” This clearly wasn't a question, just a mocking statement to belittle him.

Rex, naturally, had many things he wanted to say, but was smart enough to stay quiet, because, after all, he's a prisoner in a building full of madmen. He had no idea how they'd react if he insulted Seth. He still didn't know his ranking, after all. So, he stayed silent.

I have other engagements, so I must go now. We must do this again sometime.” Seth whispered, turning around.

Yes, we must...” Mumbled Rex.

Whatever Seth had expected, this was obviously not it, but his surprise only showed for a moment. In another, he was gone and the door resealed; shrouding the cold room back in darkness.

Spoiler:

Sign Up: Pokémon

Nickname: Karma

Breed: Honchkrow

Gender: Male

Moves: Psychic
Steel Wing

Dark Pulse
Fly

Appearances: Karma looks like a regular Honchkrow, except for a really cool Black stripe, the same color as it's body, running through the middle of his 'beard'. The Pet store said this was caused to superior breeding. As a Murkrow, his eyes were Heterochromatic, one being normal, and the other's iris being practically invisible.

Personality: Karma works well with Stephen, possibly because much of their personalities co-inside. But, more than that, where their personalities differ is what make them a great team. Whenever Karma can, he stops Stephen from giving away the last of his food, and forces Stephen to eat it. After evolving, Karma has developed a quality that makes him take charge. He'll often train the others by himself – without Stephen. During a battle, he will deliberately disobey orders from Stephen – if he thinks a different method would be more efficient, and he's usually right.

History: Karma was born in an experimental breeding facility, so that's where his differences are from. But, the facility was shut down due to morality reasons, and all the Pokémon there donated to local shelters and pet stores. His odd appearance prevented him from being sold, until Stephen's parents saw him. They hoped that this creepy-looking Murkrow would prevent Stephen from seeking contact with other people by scaring him out of the desire. It failed. The two bonded, and they spent a lot of time together. Soon enough, Stephen left with Karma to become a Co-Ordinator.

Additional information: He is the result of superior breeding, mainly from selective breeding.


Oh, to answer your question, I'd rather join them early in the story.

To everyone else, Stephen will only have Karma at the beginning of the story, and I'll never have any parts from Karma's PoV.

Pantera: Your character profile looks fine and you can post it on the main thread.

iLike2EatPiez and Charky-101: Also, I am beginning to write the starting post for the RP and I want to know if it is okay for me to bunny your characters a bit (movement and expressions, not dialogue), and it would only be for the first one or two in order to help get it moving. It's find if I'm not allowed, I'll find a different way ^.^

Mika: Tell me if you want your character to already be a part of the group or if you want her to come later. Because otherwise I'm gonna assume she want to join later and I don't want you mad at me >.<

Wolfsrain23: Please hurry up with your profile, as I am beginning to write the first part of the RP and I would like to know if your character joins later or is originally a part of the group.

Oops forgot my pokemon, not from his point of view tough.

Nickname: Sparky

Breed: Pichu

Gender: Male

Moves: Tackle, Tail whip, Sand attack, Thunder Shock

Appearance: A pichu, but the dots on his cheeks are bright red, and the black on his ears, chest, arms, and tail is replaced with a dark blue. He also has a yellow tuft on the top of his head.

Personality: Energetic, curious and tends to always get himself in trouble.

History: Whenever Drake went to the ranch sparky would always run up to him. Ever since sparky followed him to the village he had been Drake's best partner, and his motivation to join the uprising.

Lol i when i looked up pictures of a pikachu, i just found richie's pikachu from the series, and noticed my pichu sharply resembles his pikachu. (due to the tuft of hair, and the name sparky) Please tell me if anyone has a problem with this, so ill change his name etc.

I'll just play as a normal pokemon, is that ok?

Sign Up: Pokémon

Nickname: Gallade

Breed: Gallade

Gender: Male

Moves: Shadow Force (the reason for this move is that he was alone for most of his life, and lived in solitude. Then, an evil team found him, and raised him. After all the hardships, he learned this move and managed to escape the team.), Swords Dance, Psycho Cut, and Stone Edge.

Appearance: In the areas where he'd be green, he's black.

Personality: Sarcastic, works for both sides, and trusts no one.

History: When he was a Ralts, he was called Ephraim. He was happy-go-lucky with his trainer supporting him all the way.. He evolved into a Kirlia when his trainer and he were in the Hoenn League. Then, during the trainer's most important battle against his rival in the finals, his trainer's sudden change in tactics (he went from defense to all out offense, and the pressure made Ephraim weaker) made him fall down out of fatigue. Then, his trainer abandoned him, and since then, Ephraim went under the name Kage (meaning Shadow), and a team under the name of Rocket kidnapped him and forced him into experimental training. He was forced to drink potions (which corrupted his body even more), they tested needles on him, which transformed his body (making his green parts black), and forced Kage to fight in colliseum-like battles. Finally, Kage learned a forbidden move (Shadow Force), used it (sending the grunts flying), and then teleported to the region of Katsu. He no longer trusts anyone, and hunts down his old trainer to this very day.

Additional information: He can talk, and jump very high.

Rentorar: Please put an extra paragraph break between your paragraphs. It makes it look tons neater. Also, I need to know if he is already with them or not. I suggest him joining them soon and maybe having watched them for a while before revealing himself, but it's up to you.

When you add the paragraph breaks, you may post it under the main thread, but please just edit and put it under your accidental post.

Sorry, I forgot to space >_<

Basically, Kage antagonizes the group (appearing out of nowhere, maybe hurting one of the members and quickly vanishing), and then, later, he could kidnap one of the members and take them to a secret place, and then after talking with the member, Kage decides to join the group

I have an idea. If he can talk to other Pokemon (can he...?) he could kidnap one of my character's Pokemon. Most likely Fay because she wouldn't try and kill him
Which character would he kidnap otherwise...?

Charky-101: Okay, that makes one...
