Welcome to the Novia region; a rather newly established region in the world that is really starting to shine. You are a new trainer that, along with several others, has just received your first Pokémon from Professor Palm, an up-and-coming young scientist who lives in your home town, Coriolis Town.

You and the others from the town will compete for a place, and then compete in, the prestigious Novia League. On your journey you will come into contact with the others from Coriolis Town as well as other people from around the region. On your journey you will make friends and enemies, earn badges and learn life lessons. What kind of a trainer will you become? Will you be the champion of the Novia League?

History of Novia

  • Millions of years earlier – A meteor impacts the earth resulting in a crater that Charzian and Magmoria sit within. It is unknown whether this impact had anything to do with the formation of the islands.
  • 12 000 years earlier than the RP – The first tribes appear in the Novian islands.
  • 10 000 years earlier – The tribes of Arcania, Camuran, Charzian and Magmoria are fully fledged civilisations.
  • 8000 years earlier – Mt. Anubis erupts.
  • 6000 years earlier – the tribes of Camuran and Charzian war.
  • 5980 years earlier – a peaceful arrangement between the two is made
  • 4900 years earlier – the bells and chimes of Carillion Forest are hung and the shrine in Surreal Forest is erected.
  • 1000 years earlier – Darkrai and Crescelia are seen in the islands.
  • 500 years earlier – The two are no longer seen.
  • 480 years earlier – The islands are discovered by immigrants succeeding from the Hoenn region and colonised resulting in warring between tribes and colonists.
  • 300 years earlier – A peaceful agreement is reached between tribes and colonists.
  • 10 years earlier – The Unity movement is formed
  • 3.5 years earlier – The Novia Region is formed and officially recognised as a single nation.
  • 2.5 years earlier – The gyms for the Novia league are renovated/built.
  • 2 years earlier – The first Novia league begins and is won by a native of the Hoenn region.

Routes/Cities/Locations

Spoiler:
Coriolis Town
Your hometown and the hometown of Professor Palm. It is a small beach-side location free from the hustle and bustle of some of the growing areas of the Novia region. Apart from the lab and the small docks there is little of interest in this town and it has a relatively small population.
(Stunfisk, Magikarp, Tynamo, Staryu, Krabby)
Route 1
An open prairie where several pretty flowers grow. There is no path on this route but there are few obstacles in the way of travellers.
(Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Spearow, Swablu)
Dew Town
The town after route 1 and before route 2. It is a small town that serves as a trading post between the larger cities of the region and tiny Coriolis town. It is known for selling cheap yet effective goods.
(Ratata, Aipom, Patrat)
Route 2
A route with heavy foliage surrounding a neat dirt path that is travelled by trainers and workers delivering goods alike. The further you go on the path the heavier the foliage will get as the palms give way to thick oaks, pines and conifers.
(Sentret, Sunkern, Vulpix, Electrike, Spearow, Bellsprout)
Carillion Forest
The smaller of two distinct rainforests in the Novia Region where (when it is not raining) the sunlight flitters down through the trees earning it a reputation as a beautiful area. There is a faint track throughout the forest built for the ease of delivery personnel but there are many ways through the forest. It is named for the many bells and wind chimes that hang in the forest.
(Caterpie, Metapod, Weedle, Kakuna, Wurmple, Cascoon, Silcoon, Sewaddle, Hoothoot, Murkrow, Pansage, Pansear, Panpour, Aipom)
Diverg City
A smaller city that was originally only a small town, which is bordered by the foliage emanating from Carillion Forest. This is where the first gym is located as well as the entrance to a small ruin where some of the first residents of the island lived.
(Inside Ruins: Zubat, Woobat, Diglet, Paras, Golet, Gastly)

Important NPCs

Professor Harriet Palm
Info: A descendent of the islands indigenous people and an expert on pokemon psychology and ecosystems. She is a calm yet enthusiastic individual who prefers a more hands on approach to studying.

Professor Roland Knut
Info: A humorous man and a colleague of Palm’s. He doesn’t appear to take things very seriously but is a very experienced scientist specialising in the emergence and diversity of various ecosystems. He is in very good health appearing to be in his late forties but is actually in his early sixties.

Gameplay


The game will proceed in loose chapters that will allow for a lot of creative freedom for players but also keep everyone in the right place at the right time.

Posts will be made individually unless involving battles between two players. During player v player battles a joint post is created.

Levels do not exist as this RP stays more true to the style of the anime. Evolutions or the appearance of evolutionary items are decided at the discretion of GMs.

Moves can be learned via training to learn the move OR can be spontaneously learned in the heat of battle. Only four moves per pokemon.

As a reward for a particularly thrilling post special events may occur for players.

I'll post my own character some point soon, I cannot for the life of me choose which of two I have made to use.

Edit: My Character
Spoiler:

Name: Abel Rhodes

Age: 17

Appearance: Abel is of a fairly average height being around 5 ft 10, is white with a complexion that is neither pale nor tanned and has an average build with soft features. His slightly shaggy, sandy coloured hair is kept neat with a small fringe and being cut to fall behind his ears. He has deep, blue eyes and usually wears a small smile and a dreamy expression on his face. He was considered to be fairly attractive back home in Coriolis town.

Abel wears grey cargo pants supported by a thin, brown leather belt with a pale gold buckle and a simple, navy blue shirt. Over his shirt he wears a fairly thin, primarily black polar fleece jacket with white cuffs, a white zipper and a white collar. He wears an imitation pokeball around his neck on a strong black string and has thing framed glasses that he is usually seen wearing. His shoes are white and grey sneakers with a blue pattern on the sides and he carries a tan satchel with grey edges and a grey half pokeball design on the flap of the bag.

Personality: Abel is a cheerful and respectful person who views his journey as a learning and bonding experience wanting to see the full extent of his region and then more of the world afterwards. He knows a lot about pokemon having spent most of his time before beginning his journey reading and watching documentaries and he tends to be a creative and quick thinker, that being said he can be a bit of a slacker or a dreamer often drifting deep into thought or daydreams and liking to take things at his own pace. He has a soft spot for friendly people, especially girls, but doesn’t go out seeking social settings and new people nor is he much of a flirtatious type.

History: Abel has lived in the Novia Region on the island of Arcania, in fact in Coriolis Town, all of his life with both of his parents being native to the Sinnoh region and moving to Novia (before it was a single region obviously) to settle in small, beautiful and natural environment.
Abel has always been an avid learner and reader and despite his friendly nature he has never had many friends nor has he ever made much of an effort to make many. He has always wanted to travel and experience the world and through his journey, starting in Novia, he is going to realise this dream.

Starter: Darner the Male Trapinch (Hyper Cutter – Bite, Sand-Attack, Sand Tomb, Protect. Darner shares a similar friendly personality to Abel but is a very serious battler. He is fiercely loyal to his new trainer and has unusually good faith in him.

Other Info: Abel has an older sister that lives in the Kanto region and works as a breeder there. She is a successful trainer having placed highly in the Sinnoh, Johto and Kanto regions before settling near Cerulean City.

Looks so cool! I'm in!

Age: 15

Appearance: Tall for his age, he has semi-long dark brown hair that often falls over his eyes during the rain. He is tanned due to the sunny weather in Novia, and has dark green eyes that lie underneath his often furrowed brow. He wears a long, navy blue shirt with similar coloured buttons. He mostly wears blue-black jeans that fall over his white shoes with a brown coloured stripe on each one. He wears a necklace made of Fire Stone pieces, which give off heat at night. He wears a long, black trenchcoat if it does get cold however, but he mostly uses it for a soft material to sit on.

Personality: He is very happy-go-lucky and loves Pokemon. He cares for all, but can hold a grudge for a LONG time. His favourite past-times include Cooking, Building and making Jewellery from certain objects. He learnt how to do this from a couple on vacation from Hoenn who were staying in his spare room at home. He has an obsession with Sweet-flavoured berries, and loves to use them while cooking Poffins, Pokeblocks and other foods, but uses other berries as well.

History: Life at home is boring, as his mother works at the Pokeon Center at the next town over, and his Dad is a Gym Leader in Hoenn. He is left to run the Rooms to Let business at his home by himself during the week until his Mum comes home on Friday Afternoon. He has always lived here, and his father originally came from Hoenn, and went back to take over a Gym Leader position, some sort of fill in for his student...

Chosen Starter: Oddish, Female and loves FOOD! Her favourite type of food is Ice-Cream, and loves her trainer's Pink and Indigo Pokeblocks and his Sweet-Dry Poffin. She hates the cold, so it isn't a problem whenever they stay in the home town. She never leaves a wounded Pokemon unattended to, and always stops to heal them. Her ambition is to help her trainer in his cooking and wants to become a League Champion Pokemon!

Any other info: Name is Damian (pronounced Day-me-yun) and carries around cookbooks to help in coking, and has Berry Pots so as to grow berries on the road. Favourite berry is a Bluk Berry, but always wants to try a Custap berry, despite being unavailable in Hoenn, and doesn't know if they're available in Novia.

I'll put you as accepted but could you please elaborate a bit more on your characters personality and I'm a bit iffy on Juan being his father but if you improve your SU enough and add some more history involving all that in I'm willing to let that slide. Oh and a last name would be nice although it is not entirely needed.

Okay, here goes:

Personality:He is very happy-go-lucky and loves Pokemon. He cares for all, but can hold a grudge for a LONG time. His favourite past-times include Cooking, Building and making Jewellery from certain objects. He learnt how to do this from a couple on vacation from Hoenn who were staying in his spare room at home. He has an obsession with Sweet-flavoured berries, and loves to use them while cooking Poffins, Pokeblocks and other foods, but uses other berries as well. Whenever possible, he must try to build something, whether it be a shelter, table or even ornament, he tries to take his mind of thngs by suddenly building a random object. He hates Bugs, after a childhood trauma involving some Ninjask. The only Bug Type he does like, is a Shedninja. He has a bit of a habit of always tapping his fingers on something really loudly when he's bored, and his face also goes blank whenever he's concentrating and will not regain emotion until he has found the answer to what he was thinking of, or when someone mentions something about food. He has an allergy toward Ledyba and Ledian, so tries to steer well away from them if possible. He is often contemplating over the fact that he barely gets to see his father except during Summer, but this makes him more determined to become stronger, so as to prove he is just as powerful as his father.

History: Life at home was boring, as his mother works at the Pokemon Center in Dew Town, so is left by himself from Monday morning until Friday afternoon. His father works as a Gym Leader in Sootopolis City, after his apprentice went to superstardom. Damian has always lived in Novia, as did his mother, but his father is from Hoenn, and is a Master Water Type Trainer, being asked to become a Gym Leader by the Pokemon League. He took on an apprentice, who later became the Gym Leader, but after he left, his father had to become the Leader again. He either visits Novia every Summer or takes Damian to Hoenn on holiday, which is how Damian became afraid of Bugs. They were on Route 116, and Damian had strayed off the path, getting lost. Soon, he wandered into a nest of Ninjask, and was surrounded. His father soon came to the rescue witrh his Milotic, but Damian is still terriffied of Bugs. His mother and father both met when he came to Novia on holiday, and then he came along. He now wants to train Grass Types mainly, so as to show he is stronger than his father. He has opened up his home for tourists to stay in, which is how he came to learn to make jewellery, after a couple from Hoenn came down on holiday, and so he was extremely bored here, so taught him a few tricks of the trade. Now, he realy wants to go on a journwy to become strong and meet lots of new people and Pokemon.

Much better, keep writing like that and there should be no problems in the IC either.

Yeah, I was a bit rushed for time during the first one, but I had more time for the re-post! I'll try to find time for posts in the IC, so as not to become rushed and post the worst post in the existence of time .

Well don't get ahead of yourself, I won't post an IC thread until I have four or five members and for some reason it doesn't appear that there is that much interest in this RP (understandable since it has to compete with all the other Journey RPs).

Well it looks quite interesting to me! I'll go ahead and reserve a spot, and should have the SU up soon-ish, either tonight or tomorrow. It kinda depends on how much I want to procrastinate with my lab report. :D

EDIT - Alright, procrastination took over me, meaning I got no real work at all done, and I completely finished the SU! Wow, I am such a great person!


Name: Cassandra “Cassie” Stevens

Age: 17

Gender: Female

Appearance: Cassie is relatively short, only about 5’6’’. She has slightly lighter skin than most of the islanders, but still well-tanned due to amount of time she spends in the Novia sun. She has short golden blonde hair that reaches down just past her chin. Some would call her impish looking, as she always wears a smile that makes it look like she is planning something mischievous or about to watch an awesome prank go off, which she often is. While short, she is definitely not weak, and has a well-defined body.

For clothes she usually wears a brightly colored plain t-shirt. For pants she either wears basketball shorts or capris. None of her clothes really fit tightly, as she thinks that loose fitting clothing are more comfortable. Not that any of her clothes are baggy, just not tight. She also has a sort of obsession with hats, and can often be found finding some sort of hat, her favorites being an old baseball cap given to her from her dad or a black fedora.


Personality: To say that Cassie is a trouble maker would be an understatement. She would do almost anything just for a laugh, which has gotten her in trouble more than a few times. Despite not seeming like she cares all that much about people, she actually cares deeply. Her practical joking seems annoying to people, but it’s actually her way of telling them that she cares about them. She loves the wide open air, especially out at sea where the sky just seems enormous. He would often beg her father to borrow his Dragonair so that she could fly around in the sky for hours at a time and enjoy the open air. But just as much as she loves open skies, she hates being enclosed, and has a natural fear of the underground. This involves pretty much any cave, or even anywhere where she feels too enclosed or trapped. She develops claustrophobia and has trouble breathing whenever she gets into this kind of situation.

She tends to like just about anyone, as long as they are not disrespectful or rude to her. Not at all shy, she usually can go up to just about anyone and start a conversation, or at least attempt to. She is generally well liked, at least in her opinion. If someone or something upsets her though, she gets broken up and pouty and becomes much more secluded. Whenever she gets upset, she usually eats to feel better, and sweet foods tend to be her comfort food.

History: Cassie’s family originally lived in Kanto on Cinnabar Island. There were unfortunately not many other children who lived on the island, and Cassie grew up mostly alone as an only child. Despite not having many people her age to hang out with, rather than play on her own she would follow the adults of the island around as they went about their daily tasks talking to them and asking questions. Some adults found her irritating, but most found the little girl cute and charming, and tolerated her presence. As she grew up she helped them out more and assisted in small chores for others, often neglecting her own chores to help others.

When Cassie was twelve the family moved away from Cinnabar because some analysts said that the island was becoming too volcanic, and might erupt. Rather than moving to the mainland, the small family moved to Novia because her father wanted her to keep growing up on an island. She missed all of the people who lived on Cinnabar, but she bounced back quickly in Coriolis Town, her new home. There were more children her age, and she got along well with them. Eventually, for a quick laugh a friend and she turned to pranking their other friends, then giggling uncontrollably as their unsuspecting friend fell into their trap. Eventually the Great Prank War subsided and pranks ceased, but Cassie never really fell out of the habit of pulling the odd prank here or there on her peers. Now at age seventeen, most of her other friends have moved away, and she has decided to undergo her own adventure out into the world. She doesn’t really have any real motivation, other than an urge for adventure and to explore the world.

Chosen Starter: Riolu, male. Lex, which is what Cassie named her Riolu, is…shall we say, ambitious? Lex is constantly trying to prove itself, and hates to be seen as weak. Some trainers misunderstand Lex’s sometimes brutal beatings against other pokemon are often misunderstood, as Lex is only trying to prove his strength for Cassie. It’s fortunate that Cassie is easy to please, and is always offering Lex praise for his victories and even tells him how well he did when he loses.



I dont feel quite finished with this, there are a few areas that I feel I could make better, and probably will improve in the near future. Then again, I never am fully satisfied with my own SUs. Anyway, tell me if there is anything you see that should be changed!

Likewise! Just two quick questions though.

1. Which island is the starting town on?

2. And is there a particular reason why the RP is rated M?

Just wondering.

1. The story progresses left to right beginning in Coriolis Town on the island of Arcania.

2. Mostly it is to allow the freedom to write and expand our characters but also because it allows me more freedom with anything I write into various chapters.

You're SU is accepted, don't forget to spread the word so we can get this RP moving.



Also I'm taking trapinch.

Edit:

Just so you Know I would like all of your IC posts to have this heading at the top of the page

Character Name - Chapter - Part Number


Team
Spoiler:
Pokemon on Team and all related info will go here

With Professor Palm
Spoiler:
Pokemon with Palm and all related info will go here

Could you reserve me a spot? I'll have my sign-up posted as soon as possible.

Also, for your format wanted at the top of each post, if our characters have no Pokemon with Professor Palm, is it needed to include that heading?

Yes I'll reserve you a spot, did you want any particular starter reserved?
No I don't think that it would be necessary to include that until you have obtained over six pokemon.

Name: Glyn Schaffer

Age: 17

Appearance: Glyn is quite tall for his age and a fast grower in his years of puberty. He stands at a very decent 6'0" after having grown 3 inches in the past summer alone. The tropics have baked his face to an olive brown colour and bleached his brown hair a couple of shades lighter. His hair drapes over his forehead in heavy bangs that skim his eyebrows. At the back he leaves his hair long -- reaching collar length -- and keeps it in a disordered mullet. He has prominent steel blue eyes, slightly downturned and box-shaped. His build has become more athletic since the past few years, swimming his pounds away to rid himself of his overweight.

His outfit is usually utilitarian rather than stylish. He doesn't want to come over as trendy. He frequently wears khaki cargo shorts, a white singlet over which he has a plaid button down shirt. He carries around a black and orange backpack.

Personality: Glyn is a well-meaning guy. He doesn't like to see anyone hurt. His usually friendly demeanor masks his shy past, and he is actually a lot more introverted than some people might assume at first glance. His introversion can be blamed to his experience of being tormented as a child for his social awkwardness and his overweight. Because he knows what bullying is like, he refuses to do it himself, and his emotions can particularly be moved if he witnesses a defenceless kid being tormented. He is obstinate, possesses a stalwart heart, and holds dear to his values. He's a larrikin at heart, and can be cynical towards authorities, because he finds them to be invariably useless or even obstructive when they are needed. His humour is often ironic, self-depracating, and carries a subtle anti-class sentiment.

The love of his life is swimming. He learnt it the first week after his family migrated to Novia, and he has since spent much of his life in the water. In sports, he's willing to be a team player, and he's entirely concentrated when he knows it's game time, which got him elected as captain of the JV swimming team at school. It is unexpected then that he has a huge fear of drowning. He tried compensating for it by practicing his swimming every day, to build his endurance, and minimise his chances of ever coming into trouble in the water. His fear never subsided completely, but he grew more comfortable in it when he kept swimming in spite of it.

History: Glyn hails from Violet City in Johto. He was born in a family of three children, and he was the youngest. His other two siblings were two and five years older than him. The eldest sibling was his sister, Meryl, while the other was his brother Cornelius. Glyn was frequently hawked upon at school over his size. He was overweight, and because of his shame of being picked on, he rarely played outside. He kept himself socially secluded from the rest of his class. He took his enjoyment out of reading, and he kept a growing collection of books in his bedroom. Many of his stories he read were about the adventures of people with their pokémon, and he felt determined to one day become a trainer himself. His eagerness to go out on adventure became stronger when Cornelius started his journey to compete in the Johto League. Glyn's father's job as a marine biologist required him to move to Coriolis Town when Glyn was 10 years old. This chagrinned him, because he wanted to venture out to follow in the footsteps of his brother, and the move to a new place where there was no league system hampered his plans to explore the world.

In the years that followed, Glyn's father taught him how to swim, with the ocean just a marching distance away. Just a few weeks into his instructions, an unexpected large wave washed over Glyn and sunk him deep in the water where he nearly drowned. That marked the engendering of his phobia for drowning, which he learnt to cope with to practice his swimming, to make himself so strong that he couldn't drown. He lost pounds after pounds practicing, and rid himself of his floppy belly that got him teased so much. When he entered high school as a freshman, he joined the junior-varsity swimming team. His talents got him esteem among the other JV members. He participated in several meets, where his favourites became the relay events.

He had initially wanted to start travelling Novia when he became 15 and the first Novia league began, but his mother fell ill during that time. He was keen not to leave a sick mother behind so he called his plans off. He showed up less often at trainings, just tagging along for the bare minimum to keep his Junior-Varsity status. At 16, his plans were once again called off because he got the opportunity to try out for varsity. He could not miss the opportunity, and he once again let go of his childhood dream to answer a more immediate calling. Finally, at 17, he feels determined to start his adventure now.

Chosen Starter: A male tympole. Tympole is a joyful little fellow, filled to the brim with fortuitious determination. He yearns to grow, and his headstrong personality means he can be a hard listener who doesn't always follow his trainer's every command

Name: Jason Wolf (its great having my standerd RP character as my username)

Age: 17

Appearance:

Jason stands around six foot two inches and has a lean build. He has shaggy dark brown hair that falls in jagged angles around his neck and hangs down to his eyebrows. Below his eyebrows are a pair of dark amber-brown eyes that have seen a lot more then most. Jason tries to keep a smirk or smile on his face, but he often seems blank faced. The claw scars down his back, and bite scar on his right thigh are not even nearly enough to describe what Jason has gone through.

Jason tends to stick with dull and solemn colors. He wears a few different long sleeve shirts, and a dark red and black vest over top. He has a couple of black and navy jeans to wear on his journey, and some brown hiking boots as well. Jason pulls a black and dark red baseball cap on over his mop of hair and slings a good old fashioned backpack over his shoulder.

Personality: Jason is a bit soulless at first glance. He spends a bit too much time thinking when he should act and acting when he should think. His focus is always on random topics that seem to have no relevance, which makes him seem out of it.

Once you get past the crazy, and trust me after you hear the random mentioning of Pinecos while a Dragonite is kicking your face in you’ll call him crazy too, Jason is a bit nerdy in his conversation since he spent so much time researching pokemon. He’s clever with word play, and makes a good reference now and then. The other half to him is a rebel. He does things in odd and often overly complicated ways. He likes knowing he’s doing things the harder way so long as the task was worth doing in the first place. His research from when he was younger was all about how pokemon can do so much more with their attacks and moves. Seeing how pokemon used their abilities and attacks in nature inspired Jason to look at problems differently, but more so look at materials differently.

History: Jason isn’t technically a native, but he has lived in Coriolis since he was two. His father is the pilot of a sea plane who does a lot of work for tourists and the occasional trip for the professor. Jason originally wanted to follow his father and become a pilot too, but soon realized he was Acrophobic. With that idea out the window Jason grew up just being a typical kid with no real plan for the future. Like any kid of course he liked pokemon, but never put any real thought into a career as a trainer. It was his parents who decided a pokemon would be the best choice for their son. Jason didn’t care one way or another, but he was still young when his parents tried to encourage pokemon training so he couldn’t register yet. Though never intending for it to go so far Jason’s parents soon got their son obsessed. He’d vanish for hours, and come home beat up and dirty. Jason would spend long amounts of time watching pokemon and trying to learn more about them. He did visit the pokemon lab to further his research, but he put his focus on up close wild encounters.

By now Jason has gained a massive knowledge about pokemon, and has deemed himself ready to get a pokemon. He has been meticulous in his planning, and is dying to show the fruits of his labor.

Chosen Starter: Pawniard, male. Rook, is a very daunting pokemon. He always has a frightening glare as he stares down and analyzes his prey.

Any other info: Jason is mildly obsessed with classic rock, metal, and punk. He often plays those types of music when he gets into battles.
