H O E N N † D I A R I E S









[ PRESS START ]


It's been several years ever since the events of Pokémon Emerald took place. Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza have returned to their eternal slumber in hidden sectors within the landmass, and the region of Hoenn has fallen into a state of peace and prosperity. More and more challengers are rising up as they try to take on both the Hoenn League and the contest scene - natives to the island and tourists alike -. Young trainers are appearing in droves each looking to achieve their goals and realize their every ambition. And you are one such trainer, a young male or female from Lavaridge Town or small settlements nearby, and you are about to begin your own journey. You will experience fierce battles, view captivating contests and take on many other challengers as you seek to fulfil your dreams – whatever they happen to be.



[ ABANDON ALL HOPE, YE WHO READS HERE ]

if you've already abandoned all hope, please disregard this message.





Your character will be able to start their journey with any non-legendary pokemon from Gens I to V (I will be including Gen VI pokemon only after the full Kalos dex is released). The only requirement is that it is on its first stage of evolution (it doesn’t have to be a pokemon that can evolve but you will probably enjoy the RP more if it can). Other than that players will not choose the ability and moves of their chosen starter – that will be decided by a GM after a character is submitted and approved.



[ GAMEPLAY. NOPE, NO FUNNY TITLE HERE. NOT AT ALL ]



Progress: The role play will be broken into several chapters, starting with the first beginning in Lavaridge Town. The length of chapters will vary but the general progress mechanic will be that small-average length routes will take a full IC day to traverse whilst landmarks such as Mt. Chimney and long routes may take up to several IC days.



Goals/Aims: Whilst chapters will be structured assuming that characters will be challenging the Hoenn regions gyms it is not mandatory for characters to have defeating the league as their goal. The focus of this Role Play will be on the individual goals of each character whatever they may be.



Pokémon: To create a better flow and more interesting environment in the role play levels will not exist in this RP. Rather evolutions or the appearance of evolutionary items (trade evolutions will not exist) will be decided by a GM. Similarly, whilst a wild pokemon’s moves will be chosen by the RPer (otherwise it would be impossible to not have levels) the abilities of pokemon will be chosen at the discretion of GMs as will opportunities to learn new moves.



Players will be able to encounter wild pokemon at will, however posts are required to end at the capture attempt (this is negotiable for story line purposes but discuss it with me first). The success of the capture (and as such the ability of the captured pokemon) is also to be determined by a GM – in general most captures will be successes but if there is a good reason then they may not be.




The limit of pokemon to a team will be six however Professor Birch and Brendon will look after any extras and swap team members with those “stored” via PCs in the style of the anime (having seen it is not going to be required in the slightest). Whilst to begin with no Generation Six pokemon will be included this role play utilises the Gen 6 type chart.
Update: We will now be including Gen 6 pokemon as wild pokemon available to be caught.
Interaction: You can interact with each other and create NPCs at will. All gym leader battles will also be NPCs (but they will have predetermined teams).




[ SUBMIT OR PERISH (ALSO KNOWN AS SIGN-UP SHEET) ]




Full Name: Self-Explanatory



Gender: Male or Female, but you probably worked that out.


Age (13-18): Stick to the limit, feel the limit, BE THE LIMIT.


Appearance: How they look. Complexion, ethnicity, body traits and all that jazz.

Personality: How they act and react. Their mental state, quirks, their... ahem, flaws. You know the drill.

Goal: Some aspiration or dream they strive to achieve.
Brief History: In which all historical details of historyness are detailed in a very history kinda way.
Chosen Starter: Any Pokemon as long as it is in its Basic Stage and a non-legendary.
Other: Anything that cannot qualify on any of the fields above. Void if non-applicable.



















[ RULES. RULES? RULES! ]


  1. GM word is law (especially mine)
  2. Don’t god mod and don’t bunny without permission
  3. Don’t encounter legendries without first discussing it with me.
  4. Don’t request gen six pokemon until the full dex is released.
  5. Don’t go ahead of chapters.
  6. Only one person can challenge a gym at a time (because logic).
  7. Try to post once a week. We are sympathetic to various circumstances but we would like you to try and adhere to this rule.
  8. You will notice that this RP has an “M” rating. This is to allow the maximum amount of freedom for plotlines. Please don’t abuse this rating though.
  9. Do be respectful and try to have fun.
[ CHAPTERS ]
1. The Journey Begins




3. The Road to Mauville











[ GAME-MASTERS ]




Gimmepie (myself) and Scyke. We both live in different time zones, so chances are that one of us will be on to address any problems that come up. Furthermore, most decisions we make will be collaborative - so you can be assured that everything will be as fair as it can be.







[ ACCEPTED CHARACTERS ]







3. Albert "AJ" Johnson with Shuppet as starter (TheZenTraveller)

4. Skylar Rose with Poochyena as starter (ShaaymieTheShaymin)

5. Kuro Nauje with Sandile as starter (Nauje)

I'll have my own SU posted here soon. Once we start getting some more sign-ups I'll submit the IC and give you details on the first chapter.

Edit: My own SU is inside the spoiler.

Spoiler:

Name: Aya Ingvar (pronounced Eye-ya Ing-var)
Gender: Female
Age: Fifteen

Appearance: Aya stands at a fairly average height of five feet and six inches and is of a slim build. Her features are quite soft and are adorned with a light tan she has grown from spending a lot of her time outdoors. Aya’s eyes are a relatively large, but not ridiculously so and are light grey colour. Her hair is sandy-blonde, straight and falls down to her waist - where it starts to appear a little more unkempt. She has a long, thick fringe that is brushed diagonally to the right so that it covers half of her left eyebrow and the entirety of the right. She gives of a cool, calm and collected vibe and is quite pretty.

Aya’s typical outfit consists of a pair of charcoal grey cargo pants and a simple short-sleeved shirt of a lighter shade of grey. Over this she usually wears her favourite jacket open. The jacket is an aqua colour, although far more green than blue and is accented by crimson coloured cuffs, collar and zip (the interior is also crimson)
of the jacket is also this colour. Aya wears a brown belt, shoes of the same crimson found on her jacket (although they also have black areas) and carries a brown satchel with her. Unlike a lot of girls her age Aya stays away from make-up
and excessive accessories.

Personality: Aya is a friendly, generally mature and calm/collected girl, albeit one with a competitive streak. Aya is also the kind of person who enjoys both competing learning (both through hands-on work and trough research if the mood strikes her). Aya is generally very calm, but is quite assertive despite this and whilst it isn’t particularly
easy to get a rise out of her, it isn’t recommended to make an enemy of her either.

Other than her fascination with pokemon, one thing that many people will notice about Aya is that she is a fierce competitor and a hard worker. She is the kind of person who will work herself to the bone for the sake of reaching her goals, and for the sake of out-competing those around her. She is constantly seeking to better herself, a trait that has both served her well and gotten her into trouble in the past.

Aya is quietly confident, and whilst not leaping head first into situations without thinking (although she had a tendency to do this when she was younger, but these days she is a stickler for being prepared and likes to think things through), she has no problem tackling most challenges that appear before her. She isn’t a social butterfly and can be a little introverted at times – although she is perfectly comfortable in social situations – and can often surprise people with her fairly decent sense of humour because of her studious and competitive nature.

Goal: Aya’s goal is to become as skilled and as knowledgeable a trainer as she possibly can. She isn’t interested in the fame associated with the league, and is primarily only interested in bettering herself seeing the gyms and league as the best way to do so.

Brief History: Aya’s family originally come from the Hoenn region, although for a few years she dwelled in Unova. The move came when Aya was eight years old, but it didn’t benefit her much. Her family moved to busy Nimbasa city from where they once lived in Lavaridge Town into an upper-class neighbourhood (the money to do so coming from her father’s new job at a powerful company in the city). Right from the get go she disliked the needless hustle and bustle of Nimbasa compared to Lavaridge’s peaceful atmosphere, but this eventually came to pass. What really cause her to hate the city were the people in it. She frequently clashed with other kids her age and didn’t share their interests in conformity. It got to the point that rather than go anywhere near other people she would scope around the nearby routes, study pokemon in the confines of her bedroom and immerse herself in battling – both in the standard league and the champions league (where professional trainers such as the E4 compete). Unfortunately this wasn’t going to be enough and at the age of thirteen she found herself begging to return to Lavaridge to live with her grandparents (both breeders).

The next year preparations for her move were made, and she was given an egg as a parting gift with the understanding that once she was settled she would undertake a pokemon journey with the pokemon that hatched from it. She has fitted in far better in Lavaridge, enjoying time with her young Axew and coping far better socially – although her habits of researching pokemon and her enthusiasm for battling have yet to diminish.

Chosen Starter: Aya’s starter is the Axew that she hatched. It is male and she has named it Ladon. Ladon is similar in personality to Aya, although he has more of a tendency to let his curiosity get the better of him. Like Aya he seeks to become skilled and powerful, often overdoing things in his efforts to improve himself.

I’d like to reserve a spot but the SU would be possible only from 9th onwards. Is that okay? If possible I’d like to help with GMing.

Edit: Here it is:











Akito Sasaki


Chapter 0.0 - Signup



Full Name: Akito Sasaki.

Gender: Male.

Age: 18.

Appearance:

Akito has blonde – brown type of hair which he says is natural but nobody’s too sure about that. His hairstyle is basically a Hugh Jackman – Wolverine type and he likes to flaunt it. His body is well muscled owing to his prowess with the arts. His eyes are an amber color and are often covered with sunglasses.

Akito stands at a good height of 6’3. A smell of perfume often drifts around him. While practicing sparring with Hercules he often wears boxing gloves, however if he is training for battles with Hercules he wears gloves.

Akito wears a sleeveless shirt complete with a jacket or if he travels to the colder areas a sweater. He wears light colored pants or shorts most of the time. Below the jacket (or sweater) is a small belt with Pokeballs. While going on a journey he carries his azure bag pack around.

Personality:

Akito is generally friendly and cheerful, eager to help anyone.
He is very competitive and no one can stop him from entering any tournaments if they’re hosted close to where stays and are convenient to attend to. Though he is very good in martial arts he is extremely smart and cunning and if stuck in any situation he usually finds a way to squeeze out of it.

He is mentally very confident and hard to crack. He is mentally very comfortable around pokemon. Akito and hi chosen partner – Hercules are extremely good around each other. His iron fist and determination makes him a dangerous enemy.

Akito however has his own list of flaws. Starting of with his looks. That guy is obsessed with trying to impress everybody with his looks – dudes and girls alike. He has a naturally impressive wardrobe with many different types of clothes. He also has a hot temper and virtually no patience. That leads to his world record of breaking somebody’s bones at school.

Goal:

Akito’s goal is to try and become the best trainer he can be. He also wants to become the world’s greatest martial artist and if possible a great fighting type Gym Leader.

Brief History:

Akito was born into an upper middle class family in Rustboro City.
His father worked in Devon Corporation as a senior member at the time of Akito’s birth. His mother was a referee at the Rustboro Gym. Akito enjoyed a peaceful and brilliant childhood where he discovered his love for the martial arts and videogames.

As a child in school Akito was a good student but as his teachers said – “He displays a tendency to start a fight with anyone even if slightly provoked.”Due to going several classes in the arts this often resulted with him emerging the victor in these school fights. Distressed and not knowing what to do his father sent him off to the Gym Leader Chuck who was a good friend to him.

For 5 years from when he was 12 to when he was 17 Akito trained with Chuck and Hercules – a Heracross which he had received trained along with him. He was trained in martial arts and when Chuck had time they trained in battling. Akito returned to Rustboro a strong young man.

His father shifted to Lavaridge Town after becoming the manager of Devon’s store over there. They moved into the upper class and lived a life of comfort and luxury. Later Akito decided that he would pursue his childhood goal of pokemon battling and with his father and mother’s consent set out with Hercules.

Pokemon:


Hercules

@ Heretostay - Your spot is reserved (with Magby). Looking forward to your completed SU.

@ Kanea - I'll discuss it with Scyke but, quite frankly, at this point in time two GM's should be plenty.

Please reserve a spot for me. Haven't decided on starter pokémon yet. I need to re-find that RP/writing spark in me, maybe this will do the trick?

A question - can two people have the same starter species? As long as it's fine with both players?

Full Name: Nylea Dahl

Gender: Female.

Age: 18

Appearance:
Spoiler:


Nylea stands about 5'4 in height and weighs about 105 lbs. She has a slender and athletic build. One can also tell just from looking at Nylea that she is of Hispanic descent. She has dark tan skin and raven black hair. Her hair is wavy and long going to about the center of her back. Her most striking feature however are her bright emerald green eyes.

Clothing wise Nylea wears a pink ribbon on her head tying it like a headband with the end of the ribbon falling to her shoulders. She wears a white dress shirt with a collar and puffy short sleeves. Over that she wears a teal colored vest with thin gold stripes on it. She wears a purple skirt that has circles of gold fabric going all the way around the edge hanging off the skirt. She wears knee length leggings under the skirt and a pair of purple, gold, and white flats on her feet. To accesorize Nylea wears thick gold bangles on both her wrists. Nylea also wears a gold locket with a picture of a two year old girl in it and carries a teal colored satchel.

Personality: The best way to describe Nylea is kind and caring. She cares deeply for others and can sometimes be compared to a mother babying a child. Because that is exactly what she does. Nylea is very maternal naturally and will act that way towards anyone she trusts and cares for. She tends to fuss over her friends if she feels they are not eating enough or just fuss over them in general. Nylea cares deeply about Pokemon, and loves to care for them. This and her parents were what inspired her to follow her dream to become a breeder.

Nylea does have trust issues involving boys. She was hurt deeply by a boy she thought she loved and thus it takes her longer to trust guys then it takes her to trust those of her own gender. She has made her share of mistakes in her youth, having gone through a rebellious stage that ended when something changed her life completely. But she feels that those experiences just helped shape her and made her who she is today.

Goal: To be the best Pokemon Breeder

Brief History: Nylea was born and raised in Slateport City in the Hoenn region. A single child to two loving but strict parents she was restricted a lot. Her father had inherited a lot of money from his father making the family very wealthy. Nylea was taught at home by tutors not going to public school and was constantly told how to dress, how to talk, and what to eat. Even if she was just around her parents.

Once she hit her teenage years Nylea felt her parents should have seen her rebellion coming. She started to act out, talk back, no longer listen to her parents. She also started to sneak out of her house at night. Then when she was 16 years old she met Jared. A young boy her age who was visiting from Kanto. It was love at first sight on her part and she thought Jared felt the same. Nylea was happy, in love, she felt like nothing could go wrong. But then everything did. She found out several months into her relationship with Jared that she was pregnant. When she told him he blamed her and left, returning to Kanto telling her their entire relationship was a lie. Nine months later Nylea had her daughter Rosa. A cute little girl with her mothers dark hair and green eyes, while she inherited Jared's light skin.

Rosa's birth was a turning point in Nylea's life. During her pregnancy she had made amends with her parents and they had lightened up on her. They also doted on little Rosa. Nylea stopped acting out, she changed her whole perspective on life focusing on just being the best mother she could for her child. On her 18th birthday Nylea was gifted with a Vulpix. Her parents gift to her, as well as telling her they would care for Rosa while she went on a journey. It took a lot of persuasion on her parents part before she agreed. Nylea wasn't sure about leaving her two year old. But eventually she decided it was best to go. By becoming a Pokemon Breeder and learning through a journey she would be able to use her skills so she would no longer have to rely on her parents to support her and Rosa. After stalling for a few weeks not ready to leave her child Nylea finally got the courage to leave home. Kissing her daughter goodbye Nylea got a family friend to fly her to Lavaridge following her mothers advice to start her journey there.

Chosen Starter: Vulpix

Other: Just because here's what the picture in Nylea's locket looks like.
Rosa

@Red's - I don't see why not, although I think variety is a good thing.

@Genevieve - You are reserved. That picture doesn't work, and I'd like to ask that even if you guys do use images that you still do some writing about your character's appearance. I'm going to talk to Scyke about making this an official rule as it is a clause I normally include.

Also, fire-types. Fire-types everywhere. I guess it makes sense considering the location but I did not see this coming xD

Edit: On another note, I want to link to the completed SU's in the OP. But for some reason I can't make the hyperlinks colour go back to black after I have done so, and on this background the hyperlinked text is next-to-invisible. Suggestions from those of you who are knowledgeable with CSS?

Still a WIP.

Finished. Just need to draw out Lyssa's picture for visuals.

Done the sketch.


Full Name: Lyssa Ganston

Gender: Female

Age: 18

Appearance:

Click the Spoiler for a quick sketch done by moi.
Spoiler:




Image 2 (digital sketch):
Spoiler:


Standing at around 5'6", Lyssa is average height for someone of her gender. With a relatively slim build, she isn't twiggy, nor bulky. She has soft and straight black hair, that goes down slightly below shoulder length. She usually doesn't put any sort of bands or clips in her hair, but don't be surprised if she ties her hair into a bun or ponytail or the sorts. Going onto the face, her skin is not oily or acne filled, but rather light, clean and fair. Her eyes are dark brown in color, and many would probably consider her good-looking, especially by boys. Body wise, her bust size is more on the smaller size, however she still has a womanly figure. Her fingernails are covered in a light pink nail polish.

For clothes, Lyssa tends to wear a simple, light green sweater. It's isn't thick, so it's breathable for those warmer days. For pants, she wears dark blue skinny jeans, with red converse-like shoes with white laces. A light brown purse-like bag straps around her body, where she keeps things such items, Pokeballs, feminine products, etc.

Personality: Usually a nice person, Lyssa is not someone who is naturally a negative person. Although when she does get mad, she tends to stay like that for a while. However, this usually only happens when something really ticks her off. Back to the positive side, she is kind, and is usually willing to help out if she can. She has a thing for little kids, which brings out the more 'older-sister/mother' in her. For Pokemon, she loves smaller, cute Pokemon who are small enough to hold and cuddle with, as opposed to the bigger ones. She can also act girly at times, as she loves shopping for clothes and other things girls her age would find interest in. She never really had a chance with romance, as her brother would chase other boys away. She didn't really mind, but it did get annoying as she had to be very careful as to who her male friends were.

In battle, Lyssa has a tendency to be a bit aggressive. She picks this up from her older brother who is in fact, an aggressive person in general. She has a more offensive method than most people, preferring more offense than defense, and make up with a little more speed. She was never the type to get into contests, mainly because her family was so focused on battling that contests were never even mentioned.

Goal: Simply to be a good trainer, and one of the best in her family.

Brief History: Growing up in Verness Village, a small town located near Lavaridge, Lyssa has had mainly a quiet and peaceful life. Her town was small, and she would constantly play with her neighbours and the family Pokemon. Her slightly older brother who surpassed her age by only under a year, was constantly getting into trouble. He got into fights, and bullied others, which only escalated as they got older. This however, caused Lyssa to become more independent. She learnt not to rely on her brother for anything, and she soon became the caring, smart young woman she is today. Even knowledge about Pokemon she picked up while volunteering at the local daycare, while her brother was out and about doing his own business. When her parents would be out for work, she learned how to cook meals for herself, and has sort of developed a hobby of sorts with experimenting different cooking styles and recipes.

Although living in a small town, Lyssa's family is rather extensive. Having numerous relatives all over Hoenn, as well as other regions, times can get hectic, especially during visiting season. Nearly her whole family is involved with battling somehow, so it was natural that she was also brought up with battling when heading out for her journey. Her brother has already set out, and now that Lyssa's is about to start, she is determined to show her stuff.


Chosen Starter: Chimchar

Other: Her and her brother don't really get along. Not really a sibling rivalry, but they find no need to interact and talk with each other unless just saying 'hello' or something.

Here's my completed SU.

Full Name: Blaine Byron Berk

Nicknames: (Most likely half of these will never be used. It's just suggestions)
"B"
"Triple B"
"B Dog"
"Berk"
"Byron"
"Blaine" (That one took forever to come up with :p)
"Mr. B" (Get it? Like Mr T!)

Gender: Male

Age (13-18): 18

Appearance: Blaine is a roguishly handsome man with a perfectly tan skin. He stands at about 6'2, but with little muscle weighing in at 160 pounds. His hair is jet black, and is actually very similar to Yusei's hair. (Yugioh 5D's. Don't even start with the card games on motorcycles. At least it's not GX) It is actually quite spikey. It is about chin length. His eyes are a deep black: Very good for when one needs to be serious. His nose is hooked, but not enough to be noticeable. His chin is covered with light scrubble, remnants of a beard that he needs to shave weekly. This scrubble is noticeable, but it is little more than a few remaining hairs on his chin. There isn't much different about him, other than the random x-shaped scar on his back, but he doesn't like to talk about that.

Blaine's normal apparel consists of black, loose-fitting jeans, a black tank top with a white button-up shirt (that he keeps unbuttoned) over it, black Vans-esque shoes, and a white bandanna that he normally has tied across his neck, lightly of course. He has a charcoal grey backpack that he almost always has slung across his back, filled with food, specifically apples, items, and his handy dandy PokeNav.

Personality: Blaine has the personality of your typical hero: He has a happy, go-lucky attitude, and is a bit reckless in terms of well...everything! He absolutely loves adventure, making friends, and, most of all, he loves battling. He has wanted to be the champion of the Pokemon League ever since his second birthday, after his father took him to watch the Champion battle someone. He is really friendly, sarcastically funny, and rather flirty with the girls, but contrary to popular belief he CAN be serious. He never worries about anything, seeing as he's never had to, and is relatively carefree. Blaine loves nothing more than to lay in the soft, green grass near Verdanturf and take a long, peaceful nap. Peace has always been a big thing to him, and no, not the love-everyone-and-never-battle peace, but the kind of peace where everything is normal, and he would do absolutely anything to restore broken peace, despite his fiery personality.

Blaine can get cocky when things start to go really well for him, but he isn't a stranger to humility. In his opinion he's the greatest trainer to come out of Verdanturf, with the exception of the champion Wally, but that's not saying much. It's his dream to put his hometown on the map, seeing as it's quite backwater.

If there is anything that he dislikes, it would be jerks. Blaine would be friends with a bully as soon as he would hug a Cacnea. He hates it when others pick on people with the intention of hurting their feelings. He had a small experience with bullying in his past, and he wouldn't wish it upon anyone: It was terrible. He values friendship and comradery so much for this particular reason. He'll latch on to a friend and will never let any harm come upon them on his watch.

Quotes (My own category. Will be added to later):
When he gets somewhere: "Hey guys! The party has arrived!" And when he's late: "Sorry I'm tardy to the party."
When he's eating: "OMNOMNOMNOM"
When he's about to battle: "Let's do this thing!"
When he wins a battle: "Well, I guess you could say you lost to a master."
When he loses: "HaHA! Good game, my man/woman. I'll get you next time!"
When he's serious: "If you wanna get my friends...You'll have to go through ME!"

Goal: To be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is his real test, while training them is his cause. He wants to travel across the land searching far and wide, each pokemon so he can understand the power that's inside. Every battle along the way with courage he will face. He will battle every day to claim his rightful place. Come with him, the time is right. There is no better team. On and on, he'll win the fight. It's always been his dream!

And also to make Verdanturf a popular town. But that's not a priority.

Brief History: There really isn't that much to say about Blaine's past. He was born and raised in Verdanturf Town, one of the most backwater towns in all of Hoenn. He grew up with a small group of kids, all of which were good friends, and got very little interaction with the outside world. However, he was obsessed with battling, much to the disdain of his friends, whose minds were filled with "Battling is bad" nonsense that their parents had funneled through their ears. After a few years they began to make fun of him for his love of the sport, and even went as far as starting fights with him. At the age of fifteen, he had had enough of his used-to-be friends, and begged his parents to let him go on a Pokemon Journey. His father, who was very much like his son, relished in the opportunity to leave the quaint town and took his son to Lavaridge to get his first pokemon. Blaine had a "Fiery" personality, so he thought it would be fitting for him to have a fire type starter. Blaine ended up with a Magby, which he was completely okay with. His father and he took a purposely long trip, that lasted three years, to go to Littleroot. They took the trip starting in Fortree City and went down all the way to Slateport, and payed a group of spelunkers to take them to Petalburg. Slowly. They agreed, and shipped the pair. And...well, it just gets tedious from here. You get the point.

Soooo...They were supposed to go to Lavaridge Town in the first place. This was discovered, much to the anger of father and son as soon as they arrived in Littleroot, and they both made their way to Lavaridge as quickly as possible. Then they got there. The end.

Chosen Starter: Apollo the Magby: Apollo is a bit afraid of the world, which can be conquered with enough experience, and is more of a lover than a fighter, but when it comes down to it he won't let you down. He always tries to cheer people up with a comical jive of some sort. He is extremely loyal and will protect his friends to the end.

I'm new here, but I've RP'd before and would love to reserve a spot if at all possible? SU will be up soon!

Edit: Here's my SU
Spoiler:

Full Name: Nolan Richards
Gender: Male
Age (13-18): 16
Appearance:
Spoiler:

Nolan is a pretty average build and stands at around 5'10 in height. He has a pretty pale complexion, but he prefers it that way. With muddy brown eyes and jagged grey hair, he seems fairly average for someone his age, despite his experimental hair colour, though has a 3-clawed scar on his left jaw.

In terms of clothing, he never leaves his house without his baseball cap and bandana, regardless of what else he is wearing. Noramlly though, he'll be wearing fairly dark clothes, usually a dark jacket or shirt on his torso and some ripped, black skinny jeans, which extenuates just how pale he is. On his wrist he usually has a chain of some description and a sweat band. He also wears a dark necklace around his neck that his mother bought him when he was younger that he also wears all the time, even whilst he is sleeping.

Personality: Nolan is just a typical rebellious teenager, defying his parents, doing stupid stuff and taking a walk on the wild side. He's often quite confident in himself, sometimes too confident and ended up getting himself in a few sticky situations over the past few years because of it. He also has a pretty short fuse and can get pretty frustrated by things he can't do, which is why he never bothered with school all that much. He gave up on his education a few years ago and although he would never admit it himself, he feels intimidated sometimes by those of a high academic standing around him and knows he let himself down. Despite not being clever academically, but he has a pretty good worldly knowledge so to speak and is pretty gifted physically too in terms of strength for someone his size and build. In essence he is just one pretty frustrated teenage boy stuck in a small town and, as with all teenage boys, just can't wait to get out of the place; he loves nature, despite seemingly caring for very little other than himself, and can often turn hostile if people start disrespecting it.

Goal: Show people he isn't a failure and become an awesome Pokémon Trainer

Brief History: Nolan was never a high academic achiever, even from a young age, so he tried to excel at other things, such a sports in order to please his parents. However, all they seemed to care about were his poor academic results and this got Nolan pretty down. He realised aged 8 that he was never going to please his parents and a new, rebellious Nolan began to emerge; if he couldn't get his parents attention in a positive way, maybe causing mayhem was the answer. Unfortunately it wasn't and Nolan soon began to realise he had made a bad choice, but couldn't turn back now, he had a reputation with the other kids at school and in Laveridge Town that he now had to maintain. When he was 12, he and some of his rowdy group of friends decided to leave the boring spa town of Laveridge and go into the wilderness for a few days. They had a great time, but on the final day, Nolan was attacked by a wild Pokémon, resulting in the scars now on his face.

He gradually recovered and grew to love nature and the peace it provided from his parents nagging and discipling and his "friends" and their expectations of him to be some "hard man" and often left town for a few days at a time, just to get away from his bad life choices. This was when, at the age of 15, he met his only true friend, Jackie, the Tyrogue. He seemed to just click with Nolan and they soon saw each other every day. The only problem was Nolan's parents wouldn't let Jackie come in the house.

A year on, Nolan had had enough. He wasn't just going to waste his time in a dead beat town, wasting his life away in a place where his friend wasn't welcome. He had decided, it was time to leave. For good.

Chosen Starter: Jackie, the male Tyrogue. Head strong and determined but utterly loyal to Nolan and will protect him with his life, despite only having met him a year ago.
Other: NOPE!

Duncey and Fizz you have snagged the last two reservations. However, based on this RPs popularity Scyke and I may increase the number of places, so don't be disheartened yet if the spots are full.

@Heretostay and Genevieve - I will be accepting you guys by the looks of your SUs, but before I do some things need to be cleared up. This RP will be chapter based, and as such everyone will be in the same locations at fairly similar times. The journey begins in Lavaridge and none of you mention that being your starting point. Blaine has gone to Peralburg for some reason and Nylea is in Slateport, which makes the start from Lavarisge a tad difficult.

@Everyone - Just a note, the "other nearby settlements" clause refers to player-made locations. Smaller towns around Lavaridge's proximity that do not actually appear in Canon Hoenn.

Well thought I might try RPing again so... ya....


Anyway a rough draft that is still a WIP but the over arcing character is what you see now. Most changes will be adding more detail and fixing grammar and spelling... I know no spots are open now (took too long to write) but thought I'd post his character anyway.

Name: Hark Rense
Gender: Male
Age: 18


Appearance: Height of 5 feet and 10 inches he has sharp facial features that lead him to look rather average. He has brown hair that is usually in a military style short cut (so he doesn’t have to mess with it) and dull blue eyes, which are usually hidden behind a pair of expensive sporty angular sunglasses that has a few small metal add ons and some wires on them. He has a lean muscular build that he keeps up with daily working out routines. However he has no desire to become a muscle bound hunk and works out just enough to keep himself in good shape.

He is usually found wearing a cheap plain black T-shirt with a few burn holes, grease stains, and other marks on them along with boring grey Khaki pants with similar wear. He does replace these shirts but he seems to damage new ones in only a few hours. He does own a sharp black suit that he uses for rare occasions. He carries around a tough pure black backpack that is large. Inside he always has a very duty computer with all sorts of strange equipment he has created. His shoes are just run of the mill sneakers which have seen much better days but haven’t completely fallen apart …yet.

His most unique feature is his right arm, from the elbow down it is gone, and however it has been replaced by a mechanical version that was rather primitive. However over the last few years Hark has been modifying it and enhancing this arm with hundreds of upgrades to the point he can move it much like his left arm. This arm is the lride of his inventions so far and he continues to improve it. It’s not uncommon to see him walking around with this fake arm limp and random wires hanging from it as he is in the middle of another mod for it. His devotion to his craft and passion is also shown by many scars and burns on his body, most of which are found on his left hand. Lucky he hasn't scarred himself too badly yet so it just gives him a rough and worn look.



Personality: Personality: Hark is a determined individual with a level of genius when it comes to technology. Much of this knowledge is due to his obsessive level of curiously and a desire to create. He is constantly testing equipment, dissecting it, and enhancing things he finds. He has made good friends with several inventors as well as hackers/programmer, who he is constantly mining for knowledge. He has risked his life many a time and has caused himself many wounds over the years from his passion, but this hasn’t stopped him. He is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goals even it that means risking his own life. However due to his one track mine is knows very little about Pokemon, training them, and why so many people are so obsessed with them.

Hark is quick to judge others and quickly decides if someone is worth his time and intelligence to engage. Hark bases these on his own values self reliance, intelligence, and innovation. He can’t stand the basic trainer mentality and thinks of them as mindless cattle to the league, and that they waste any real potential they could have had in his mind. As you can guess this view and the actions that comes from this view means he doesn't have many friends among his peers.

Hark also has a great desire for self reliance and prefers to never need the help of others. This leads to a level of pride and his “I can do it myself I don’t need help” attitude. This drives a darker side of his technological obsession: weapon research and development. There is no doubt even the smallest of Pokemon can easily defeat and kill the greatest human fighters. However Hark desires to create a way to give humanity a fighting chance if they ever need it. He jokingly calls this humanity “evolving” to become stronger. He doesn’t care that such measures are frowned upon as he sees humanity’s over reliance on Pokemon to survive as a symbol of humanity’s weakness. He does consider the law and any weapons he does work on is often hidden within another machine (like his arm).

Due to his dislike of current society he has no issues bending or even breaking the rules to see his own goals met. He fully believes in the end justifies the means when it comes to his vision of a new world. This makes him dangerous when this is mixed with his genius, and a level of uncaring he has toward pokemon and people he deems “worthless.”

Despite his own desire for self reliance he is quick to protect those closest to him from harm. Hark is quick to form bonds with both people and Pokemon if he lets his guard down, and he knows this. He strives to keep himself in isolation and not to get emotionally invested in his pokemon. This makes him come off as a cold and uncaring person. However if someone can get past this and actually befriend Hark, you will find the good hidden in his heart. To those he values Hark has a deep level of caring for, and will try to protect them the best he can.


Goals: To evolve humanity through technology. To be the man that ushers in a new Era for humanity that is focused on Technology and not "wasteful" activities like Pokemon training, however he understands this is a lofty goal so current he plans to build a business and dominate the technology market.


Brief History: Hark grew a only son to two loving caring parents who were avid Pokemon trainers. At an early age of 7 his parents gave him his first Pokemon: a male Ralts that was the offspring of his mother’s Gallade, and his mother’s Gardevoir. His parents hoped the early start would give him an advantage over the other kids his age and he would have a leg up to becoming the next champion. Hark was excited and immediately went off to train up his Ralts.

He encountered a Poochyena. Overconfidence and ignorance drove him to try in battle the dark type, which ended in disaster. His Ralts was torn into by the hungry Poochyena, who saw the infant Pokemon as a meal more than an opponent. Seeing the Ralts being mauled Hark recalled his Ralts. However the Poochyena wasn’t going to let his meal be stolen and it turned on the young Hark. Tearing at the young boy’s arm it finally tore the Pokeball away from Hark’s shredded arm and took off with its packaged meal to go. Hark would have bleed to death had his parents hadn’t come running (his father’s Gardevoir had sensed her baby’s distress and quickly ran to save the Ralts with Hark’s parents not far behind).

Hark’s life was saved but he lost most of his right arm, the Ralts had been killed, and he was broken mentally. Guilt would overwhelm and scar Hark as the event and his feeling of helplessness would sink in. At the same time the medical machines and his primitive replacement arm ignited a curiosity of technology that would consume his life. At first he was determined to find a way to make himself better so he wouldn't need to ever feel so hopeless, but soon the obsession pushed him to dream of so much more.

When he hit 12 he didn’t have any interest in becoming a trainer and he was already mastering programming and could make several simple machines like a small motor or a machine like a CD player or can opener from just random parts. His parents would keep trying to push him to be a trainer for several more years but by the time he was 16 they had given up.

He would however “become a trainer” at 18 when he decided he needed to move out of his home town of Lavaridge and really see the world. His “personal defense systems” were still being tested so he decided a Pokemon could be useful, and some free pieces of technology in the form of a Pokedex and Pokeball also drove him to see someone to become of trainer. What pokemon didn’t matter to him as he randomly selected a Pokeball without caring what was in it. This would end up haunting Hark as the Pokemon selected was a Female Ralts, and seeing the very type of Pokemon he had failed once would reopen old wounds and pain…


Chosen Starter: Ralts... currently has no name and its personality is unknown. This is all due to the fact Hark hasn't released it yet. He honestly doesn't even know the Pokeball he randomly grabbed contains a Ralts. He was only interested in the pokeball itself and the free Pokedex. Her personality will be revealed in the RP.

Other: His arm is equipped with a retractable blade that appears out the top of his lower arn between his wrist and elbow. To deploy the blade the metal panels on top of his arm flip open and the blade extends forward and out of its cradle in his arm this process takes slightly less than a second from Hark activating the process to the blade locking into position. The blade can be jarred out of position during the deployment so its best to have it deployed before the fight to insure its properly lock prior to use. This was installed for self protection during his journey, and he is pleased with the weapon so far and already has plans to enhance it but lacks the funds and materials.

Hark's sunglasses are modified to give him a HUD that displays information from a wifi device but it doesn’t work at this point so the sunglasses just look wierd.

Lastly Hark has a high tolerance to pain since he is constantly subjecting himself to it. It will take an extreme amount of pain to stop or disable him.
