i wonder what govani has planned for the rocket crew.

April 4th, 2008, 2:00 PM
You'll see..everyone's gonna get awesome missions ^^

April 4th, 2008, 4:06 PM
Well, Gyro told me that I could post up my profile here. And yes I'm aware it's not the best application I've ever had typed up... Still the character that I wanted for this roleplay is being used in another one, thus why I decided to use a snob instead of a hyperactive, cheerful girl.


Name: Annabella 'Lila' Nightengale

Age: Sixteen [[16]]

Hometown/Region: Saffron City, Kanto

Rank: Grunt

Job: Regular Member

Appearance: If there was such thing as Pokemon teenage models, then Annabella would definitly fit better in that sort of occupation instead of being a lowly grunt in an evil organization. Her curves are practically flawless and at her height of 5'6", she's better off wearing designer clothes than the unfashionable Team Rocket attire given to her. But whatever she fits well in the tight black long-sleeved shirt that is cut high enough so that her bare stomach is exposed, it also has the 'R' Team Rocket logo in the center of the shirt/ Her manicured long fingernails are clearly seen in all their glory thanks to the white fingerless gloves she wears over both of her hands. Along with all of this, her outfit also consists of a black miniskirt and white knee-high boots.

As for her actual body, Annabella has rather pale skin with sapphire blue eyes that twinkle with mischievous thoughts and ideas about various things. Her raven hair is naturally in curls and goes down to her mid back with streaks of hot pink hair mixed with the raven locks of natural hair. And what is a girl without her accessories? Nothing. Which is why she has a tendency to wear earrings that each have the traditional 'R' logo on each of them, also the hair band she tends to put on her head to prevent any hair from covering her lovely face is white to match the gloves and boots.

Personality: Along with beauty comes vanity, which is why Annabella is extremely vain and usually leaves the dirty work for men whom she attracts or for pokemon to do. [Whether it be her own or some stolen ones] Along with all of this Annabella is also a snob and tends to be rather loud mouthed, especially if things aren't going her way. She also gets jealous, envious, and holds grudges with ease. Which is why it's a very bad thing to get her mad... Unless you are okay with an angry model-like teen vowing to get revenge on you till the day you die. After all Annabella is also known to be rather stubborn.

However Annabella could be kind, it's extremely rare like Lugia and Ho-oh, but there are occasions where she'll actually try to help other grunts and people in general to do something. Just as long as she isn't risking a nail or getting dirty. And heck, once you manage to get pass the fact that she's extremely vain and treat her with respect, she manages to open up a bit more and stop thinking about herself as often as usual.

Background: Annabella Lila Nightengale was born in an extremely rich family and was raised in Saffron City along with them. She lived a very good life with a great education, great clothes, and great memories to share with others. However there was one thing she didn't get, and this was the heart of the one boy who had stolen it without saying a word. He was a rather timid child and she had met him in various occasions when other rich families threw parties since he was a son of a rich lord as well. However instead of feeling the same for her, eventually during his teen years, he left his home and went with a blonde haired middle-class girl who was not even worthy enough to claim him... But he left anyway.

But how did she end up in such a terrible position in Team Rocket? Well since her love had left, she vowed to get revenge on the girl who had taken him away. Thus why she created a master plan to do just that, this plan involved joining Team Rocket so she could learn more about stealing pokemon, stealing, and other things that could perhaps give her a way to find out where the moronic blonde was and how to get back at her. The only problem was with the fall of Team Rocket, it wasn't as easy as she thought to find the major organization.

Eventually using her money and her skills of seduction, she managed to find someone to hook her up so she could join Team Rocket. Thus how she left riches for evil. Which isn't too much of a bad thing, but heck, if this is what it'd take to get revenge on some blonde moron, then she's more than willing to do what it takes to do it.


Name:: Venonat
Nickname:: Venus
Gender:: Female
Personality:: Venus is extremely loyal to Annabella and even though Annabella does have a tendency to yell at the poor poison-type pokemon for just doing one minor thing wrong, it knows that deep inside. Annabella could be a nice person. Thus why Venus doesn't seem to mind anything that the raven-haired teen says.
Obtained:: Venus was obtained when Annabella finally managed to corner someone down so she could find out where exactly she could sign up to be a Team Rocket Member. And this was the pokemon she was given since she didn't exactly go down to Pallet Town to get a pokedex or a starter pokemon for that matter. For she was too lazy and felt as if that perhaps Prof. Oak should have came to her if he wanted her to have a starter pokemon.

April 4th, 2008, 4:39 PM
@Cariger: excellent sign-up! You're accepted

April 5th, 2008, 9:12 AM
umm yea... i read through the last few posts in the RP, and one winged angel's post makes little to no sense at all.. he did enough events in a single post that it would take an entire page of REAL posts to do that much.

also I thaught my grammer was bad..

no offense one winged angel.. but you really need to redo that post ( and try to cut half of those events off so we can actually finish our meeting before you come barging in going DIEDIEDIEDIEDIE

April 5th, 2008, 10:13 AM
As long as applications are still being taken:

Name: Kallus Schneider
Age: 16
Hometown/Region: Vermillion City/Kanto
Rank: Adv. Grunt
Job: Reg. Member
Appearance: Tall for his age standing at about 5'11" with short blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. He has a fairly muscular build but not much color to his skin. Only unusual thing about his attire is the red and brown headband he wears bearing the symbol of the former the Elite Four's fighting master, Bruno. Yet, aside from that he wears the usual black Team Rocket attaire with the large yellow R emblazoned on the front.
Personality: Not a man of very many words, would much rather prove himself through his actual actions instead of a lot of fluffy talk. Seen as a jerk to all those who don't know him, or who just don't resonate well with him. Easily one of the coldest and most sarcastic people you'll meet unless he takes a liking to you. Always in the mood to prove himself, be it through a Pokemon battle or a fist fight.
Background: Growing up in Vermillion City was not what he would call fun. All the idle chit-chat about how righteous trainers are and Lt. Surge's noble army career just drove him to despise all the warm hearted monotony of life. So he searched books and newspapers for any sign of hope to break the afore mentioned monotony of life... and he stumbled upon the article about Team Rocket. Reading all these stories about Giovanni, and the two failed missions at Silph Co. and Game Corner he realizes that there were people to his liking at some point in time.At the age of 12 he went off to Saffron City to strengthen his mind and body considering it to be the best and most balanced area to do such things. In his time there he trains with the famous Saffron Gym leader Sabrina to strengthen his mind and went to train at the Fighting Dojo for his physical strength. After training at both areas simultaneously he was given a Pokemon as a reward for completing the training from both places. But before he could leave Saffron he was approached by Bruno of the Elite Four and requested to train under the great Fighting Pokemon trainer to see what he has learned. So after some time Bruno acknowledged his interesting style and thought process and awarded him a personalized headband to prove that he is one of the few pupils of Bruno.Feeling as though he truly accomplished something in life he heads out to join Team Rocket at the age of 15. He pledges his loyalty to the restoration of the Team Rocket name and strives to become Giovanni's right hand man.

Pokemon: Kadabra
Nickname: Kaboom
Nature: Mild
Personality: He is the complete opposite of Kallus. Kaboom is calm, friendly and relaxed but always enjoys a good fight.
Obtained: Was given to him from Sabrina as a gift for completing the Gym training ( received as an Abra)

Pokemon: Hitmonchan
Nickname: Jacky
Nature: Hasty
Personality: Loves a good fight, spars with Kallus all the time. Quick tempered, headstrong and feisty.
Obtained: Bruno's gift to him after proving himself to the Fighting Type elites. ( received as a Tyrogue)

April 5th, 2008, 12:52 PM
@RenzokukenofCerberus: your sign-up was a bit short, but it was detailed. There were also a few minor spelling errors. However, you are accepted

April 6th, 2008, 6:36 AM
Is OWA the only non Rocket who joined so far? And the person who posted the signup in the rp thread... am I the only one that couldn't make much sense of it?

April 6th, 2008, 7:01 AM
No no, I do believe there is another Non-Rocket. Although I'll have to recheck the thread and see for myself. And also about the last signup, it didn't bother me too much. What bothered me more was what Dude0 posted in the roleplay thread. I know he might be a newbie, but couldn't he just PM Gyro instead of posting on the actual thread. >_<

But going back to the last sign up made on the roleplaying thread, Mario isn't such a bad character. The only bad thing I could say is the fact that he wants to be an admin. There are TOO many admins and too little grunts and regular members.

But to end this post on a good note, I really liked your last post Renzokuken. ^^ It was so nice and way better than my intro.

EDIT:: The other non-Team Rocket Member is K9S8.

April 6th, 2008, 7:12 AM
Ahh okay, and ya that Admin thing didn't sit well with me either, but the whole thing about Mario that bothered me was sorta the choppiness and the fact that his background seemed waay too vague.

And I liked your intro too Cariger, a snotty stuck up character is always fun to play/play off of. Should be interesting to see how all the characters interact...especially yours.

April 6th, 2008, 9:40 AM
Yea, Mario's sign-up kind of bothered me as well. It was choppy and vague compared to some of the other sign-ups we have, and Dude0 posted in few other RP threads. And we have way too many admins, and I somewhat regret picking admin now. I was thinking of Adv. Grunt at first... Dunno why I made Nate a Rocket Administrator. Well, maybe I'll have Nate disobey orders and he'll end up as a Grunt. Who knows.

Though I do wonder what type of mission we'll get. Guess I'll have to wait and see.

April 6th, 2008, 9:51 AM
Okay sign-ups have been coming in, and I'm afraid that there are too many participants in the RP as it is, so I'm going to have to close all sign-ups for now. However, not everyone has been posting, and I doubt every single person I accepted will actually participate, so I may re-open sign-ups later on. Also, here are the mission assignments for everyone:


Mission Description: To capture as many rare pokemon as possible for Team Rocket, gather valuable pokemon fossils, and retreive important information on Sliph Co. and Devon Co.'s newest pokemon inventions and technology secrets. You will also be travelling to the Jhoto and Hoenn regions as pokemon hunters and spies to work underground. In Hoenn, you are to infiltrate Team Aqua and Team Magma's forces to gather their secrets for Team Rocket. Team Rocket Admin Rayne and Grunts Annabella and Kallus will be partnered on this mission.

Mission Instructions: Obtain more rare pokemon by any means necessary. Be sure to travel to the Safari Zones in each of the regions to steal pokemon from there as well. Take any rare pokemon you come across. Send each pokemon you catch back to the base within the particular region you are working in. You will also be working as spies in the Kanto, Jhoto, and Hoenn Regions. Take technology or pokemon research secrets from Sliph Co. and Devon Co. as well as find out more about the plans of Team Aqua and Team Magma. To steal Team Magma and Aqua's secrets, you will act as spies and do undercover work.


Mission Description: To infiltrate Team Aqua and Team Magma's forces in the Hoenn region and do undercover scientific research on pokemon DNA configuration. Steal as many secrets as possible. You will also be collecting DNA samples from as many Hoenn pokemon as possible, which will be provided for you by the agents who are collecting more pokemon for the team and you are also to gather DNA from any new pokemon you come across. Your main goals will be to study pokemon DNA replication and cloning and DNA combination and merging. Aside from that, you are to steal Team Aqua and Team Magma's scientific research and technology plans. Admins Nate and Darksteel and Adv. Admin Bertrum will be partnered on this mission.

Mission Instructions: Travel to the Hoenn region to do secret work from inside of Team Aqua and Team Magma's forces. You will act as undercover scientists and techs working for each team. With each pokemon DNA sample you obtain, send it to the rocket base you are stationed in for storage. We will give you instructions on where to go and what to do next at each location we send you. Head to the secret rocket base in the Hoenn region when you are ready to begin your mission.

April 6th, 2008, 11:24 AM
With the mission, you forgot about Silhouette, lol. He's a scientist also, but I hope he manages to post soon so he doesn't get left behind.

April 6th, 2008, 11:48 AM
Oh yeah XD..I forgot about him because he hasn't been active lately. I'm sure that he'll post soon though..or at least I hope o_O;

Btw Renzo, Howler's still a Houndour..it hasn't evolved into Houndoom yet ^^;

April 6th, 2008, 11:51 AM
Er, my bad... goes to hit the edit button

April 6th, 2008, 12:06 PM
All is forgiven Renzo..I just hope Silhouette and TheOldKoot come back soon..I dont want them to be left behind..

April 6th, 2008, 12:51 PM
im back foo.

i was expecting something much less then what you have planned for us gyro, good on ya

April 6th, 2008, 1:58 PM
*subscribes by posting*

I really didn't have much reason else to post.. But yeah, must keep to topic.

Good idea, this is a different sort of RP I've been in. Sorry about being late and all. Was gone all weekend.

April 6th, 2008, 3:35 PM
Everything's fine Silhouette..I'm just glad you got here before we got too far in the RP.

April 6th, 2008, 5:36 PM
That's okay Silhouette, I'm also glad you managed to get back to the roleplay before too much happened. ^^

Also guys, I know this is totally random, but since we want to incorporate the trainers in this roleplay... Should we have Team Rocket Members attack and try to steal the trainer's pokemon? Or should the Team Rocket members go and do their own thing while the Pokemon Trainers try to stop them?

April 6th, 2008, 5:37 PM
Dont worry about that Cariger..I already have everything planned out concerning the regular trainers ^^

April 6th, 2008, 5:43 PM
Ah okay, I just wanted to make sure that the poor trainers wouldn't feel neglected since the roleplay is revolved around Team Rocket and how they are trying to once again be the powerful organization it once was. But since you already have something special planned for the trainers, I guess I shouldn't worry about it. ^^

EDIT:: I just realized something, although it's totally random.It's about the Team Rocket Team consisting of Gyro, Renzo, and myself. Rayne's Houndour is strong against Annabella's Venonat, Annabella's Venonat is strong against Kallus's Hitmochan, and Kallus's Hitmochan is strong against Rayne's Houndour.

Anyways guys, yeah that was totally random and I just found that rather comical. So sorry for once again wasting space on the OOC Thread to bring something like that up. ^^o

April 7th, 2008, 2:10 PM
Wow.. O_o

I came back on to PC about 24 hours later, and there's another whole page! I'm not complaining, but yeesh! I can only go on in the afternoon, and only hae like 2 hours, so don't expect me too often. I'll try to post at least once a day, though.

April 7th, 2008, 3:32 PM
gyro + renzo + cariger = rock paper scissors anyone?


April 7th, 2008, 7:40 PM
I'll post in a few... but can someone stop Slash from posting? He's just adding clutter and completely inane posts.

April 8th, 2008, 1:12 PM
I'll post in a few... but can someone stop Slash from posting? He's just adding clutter and completely inane posts.

I've already PMed him about that, and he's deleted his posts and everything. I just posted btw.

April 11th, 2008, 9:09 AM

Hey if it's not to late I'd like to join as a grunt if I can, but if I have to start out a lower rank then I'd understand.
Team Rocket Grunt
Appearance: He is quite tall for his age at about 6'5'', and his piercing dark red eyes put fear into almost anyone for no true reason. His hair is almost shoulder length and is sleek and slightly spiky, it also is almost Jet black color with a dark red streek, the color of his eyes, that goes down the right side. His clothing consists of a black T-shirt, Black pants, and a Long, yello coat with small flame trim at the bottom that goes to about 5'' past knee length. His face and hair style looks nearly identical to that of Volkner's, the 8th Sinnoh Gym Leader.
History:He started his pokemon journey at least 2 years before everyone else. He began his journey alot like Ash did, but Wes started at least a year before Ash did. It took the nearl whole first year to get his first set of 8 gym badges from Kanto. He didn't make very many friends in Kanto and for the most part traveled alone. He barely one the Kanto league, because his Pikachu was struck hard by an enemy attack. Shortly after the Indigo League was finished, he set off for Johto. Right before he left Prof. Oak gave him the Charmander which is his Charizard today.
While in Johto he tryed to be more layed back and make more friends, but that didn,t turn out so well. About after the time he finished the second Gym in Johto, a pokemon Ranger looked like he was in a hurry and dropped what appeared to be an egg case. Later on when the egg hatched Wes realized it was a Manaphy egg, now as trusted as his Pikachu. Even though he traveled alone he wants to be in team Rocket and travel with Rayne's group because he hears that he is a great trainer and that the people he works with aren't so bad themselves. So he has went from a normal trainer to maybe team Rocket opprotive in training.
Personality:He is a very kind person and cares about almost everyone he knows. He can be very helpful to people in need of it.
All in all these don't sound like team Rocket material, but he has his heart set on becoming at least an Admin in team Rocket.
He is also sometimes a goofball. When need to be he will be serious and he puts others before himself, most ot the time.

Pokemon: Manaphy
Nick: N/A
Level: N/A
Moveset: Heart Swap, Water Gun, Bubble Beam, Surf
Personality: Kind and loving
Appearance:Slightly smaller than average Manaphy, hatched from an egg found in his travels.
Is really weak and doesn't battle at all. Is just A member of Wes's team and is a friend.

Pokemon: Pikachu
Nick: N/A
Species: Pikachu
Level: N/A
Move Set: Volt Tackle(an egg move), Thunder Wave, Quick Attack, Thunderbolt
Personality: Wants to battle alot and is quirky
Appearance: average for Pikachu, SHINY, his first pokemon

Pokemon: Charmeleon
Nick: May sometimes be called Blaze
Move Set:Flamethrower, Smokescreen, Ember, Slash
Personality: Protective of Master
Appearance: Larger than average Charmeleon, a gift from Prof. Oak

He also has few others that also stay at the region Lab.

April 11th, 2008, 1:31 PM
Just saying, I made a bio on your RPG Gyro.

April 11th, 2008, 2:39 PM
No offense PokeMaster1, but your character is too strong, too perfect, and there's no way he could have done all those things in five years. Plus your application lacks description, so add a bit more. Because Gyro will probably say the same thing as I am telling you now. So I'd edit your application if you want to be accepted. ^^o

And it'd be pretty hard to win every single league, beat all contests, and finish his pokedex. After all that means a ton of traveling would need to be done, a lot of training would have to be done, and a lot of patience would be needed to catch them all. So all that takes time and as I said before, five years isn't enough to do all of that. And how is it possible for a guy to only have shiny pokemon? I mean it's hard just being able to capture one, but to own six shiny pokemon is practically impossible.

The personality isn't clear either. How could someone be kind, caring, and helpful yet be cold at the same time. Be a bit more descriptive and explain who your character could be kind yet cold. Does he have some sort of personality disorder? Or is he bipolar?

April 11th, 2008, 2:56 PM
Is Gyro still taking bios on his RPG...?

April 11th, 2008, 3:17 PM
Yes, but he's offline now. So he'll probably check out both yours and PokemonMaster1's applications when he signs on Neku. Because remember he does have a life and he can't be accepting people if he's away from the computer. ^^o

April 11th, 2008, 3:20 PM
Yeah, I know, I was just wondering if he was still taking applications. I wasn't really sure, but thanks for telling me Cariger. ^^

April 11th, 2008, 4:31 PM
I altered the History of my charater so that he doesn't seem so strong, but I want to keep the same pokemon because thats what I use on Pokemon Pearl.
Also Cariger, I just made my profile like that because I've done all that on my pokemon games.
Why don't you check out my storyline that I'm trying to make and see if you'd like to be in it or something.

April 11th, 2008, 4:57 PM
I don't think that's what Cariger meant... I think it's because they're all shiny and you have two legendaries.. And their moves seem to strong... And it doesn't seem to look like the regular bio Gyro set up, but that's what it seems to me.

April 11th, 2008, 5:18 PM
Also last time I checked Gyro said he was only accepting applications for Adv. Admin and below, so you couldn't start at Elite even if you wanted to.

And regardless of if you did it in the game or not, the Pokemon are too strong, you have little to no description. You need to go more in depth...also what does half the leagues mean?

Why don't you just scale down your power and add detail. Because if it's not detailed, just like Cariger said, Gyro won't accept you if your stuff is one sentence each.

April 11th, 2008, 9:04 PM
Okay sign-ups have been coming in, and I'm afraid that there are too many participants in the RP as it is, so I'm going to have to close all sign-ups for now. However, not everyone has been posting, and I doubt every single person I accepted will actually participate, so I may re-open sign-ups later on.

@Cariger/Renzo: Whew, thank you guys for managing things while I was gone. It's a really big help you know, and I really appreciate it ^_^

@Pokemaster1/Neku: As quoted above, I'm not accepting any more sign-ups at this time. I'm really sorry..I just didn't think I'd STILL be getting sign-ups. I may re-open them later, but right now I just have too much going on and adding more people to the RP will just make my workload increase.

Pokemaster1, I'll still evaluate your sign-up though:

As both Cariger and Renzo said, your character is WAY too perfect. Your team is much too strong, and I just won't flat out accept any sign-up with more than one shiny on a character's pokemon team. Having one Charizard alone makes your team a bit over-powerful, let alone having a Manaphy. Pikachu would've been okay, but the movesets Pikachu and all of your other pokemon have are way too strong. I agree with everything Cariger and Renzo said, so I won't get into the god-ness of your character any further. Aside from that, your sign-up itself lacked detail at all. There were a few spelling errors as well. I'm really not trying no be mean or anything about this, if you had signed up when I was still accepting sign-ups then I would've given you a chance to edit. I always do give people chances to edit and fix their stuff, because I rarely reject people straight away. But like I said before, I'm really sorry but I cant accept your sign-up at this time..

April 12th, 2008, 9:26 AM
Ok Gyro, I didn't know that you were accepting anymore bios. If I did, I wouldn't have made a sign-up.

April 12th, 2008, 9:34 AM
Sorry for the trouble I caused, and for If you ever have sighn ups again I'll edit my sighn up.
I still want the three pokemon but I'll edit them too.

April 18th, 2008, 11:44 AM
Hmm... so what do we do now? Things have been at a stand still for a while...
