Oh well thanks My question is would you prefer me to start from the beginning, or do you want to negotiate out where I'd stand starting in Pewter?

Depends on what you'd prefer. If you do want to start out in Pewter, I can alleviate your pokémon's levels depending on how many pokémon you wish to have captured on the former routes. The fewer pokémon you have, the higher their levels will be. Somewhere in the middle of what the rest of the players in Pewter have.

Honestly I think I'd rather just start off in Pewter City and only capture a Petilil

Would Monferno on lvl 18 and Petilil on lvl 14 work, then?

You'll have to let me know the gender of Petilil, and also Monferno was able to learn Fury Swipes at lvl 16. Would you like to discard one of the current moves to learn Fury Swipes instead?

    Zovy was 13 prior to my latest post. D:

    I'll replace Leer with Screech.

    As for the new leveling update; my only issue with it is that I really want to get grovyle's next grass move and that won't happen until 29 or so. Otherwise I won't mind too much because the other moves are pretty average minus Slam maybe. Using Absorb for a grass move is pretty lame but I'm stuck with it for awhile. : /

    I guess I missed that, no need to make faces.

    Let's hope you'll get TMs in an area or quest soon, then. Since we have level caps now, you'll likely reach the cap anyways, if you write several posts in an area using Vuowth as much as you've done this far.

      I believe Zovy is supposed to learn another move at 15 then according to the B2/W2 moveset if you're still following that.

      I'm pondering what TMs I want to obtain potentially for future Pokemon should they become obtainable or focus on what I have now and what they can learn now or in the future via evolution. Zovy will probably need more boosting since Vuowth is already armed with a decent egg move.

      Well apparently I am not following the BW2 moveset, then! But alright, I will give Zovy Mist now, if you want to forget an old move for it.

      @ Scyke, that's fine with me! Let me know what pokémon you'd like to have captured before Pewter City.

            If it's possible, yes. But a heads up, I probably won't finish the SU today as I'm on my way back home right now. ^^

            Let me know when you have finished it, then. And at which chapter you'd like to start and what pokémon you want to have captured before starting.

            I AM SO SORRY for not having updated the IC for a whole week.

            How are you guys doing? Busy or just losing interest for other reasons?

            I'm afraid I personally have lost the spark for it : \ Not as much because people stopped posting, but more that... well, I realized that I'm not much of a fan of RPs with minimal character interaction, other than with characters you make yourself. It's been a fun run, but I think I need alot, -alot- more interaction with others in an RP before I can really get pumped about something, so I'm sorry Red Been a good one though.

            I understand you. I'm taking you away from the players list but I will dearly miss Adam and his Quilava and rodents~

            I personally have come to realize that sometimes I enjoy writing my own thing under the guidance of a Game Master a bit more, and other times I enjoy making short posts where I interact with others at all times. My solution has been to join both kinds ^^

            I getcha. Sorry that I have to go, but at least I realized this about myself I can't really do writing on my own, even with someone else reading it. It just feels like a chore to me then. Either way, good luck on your ventures hereon out!

            Name: Arabelle Silverklein

            Age: 14

            Trainer: Hoenn female

            Starter: Charmeleon




            Personality:
            Spoiler:
            Arabelle is in ways a troubled young teenager. Only 14 years old, her path in life has already been set by her family, who is part of a small religious order whose life and practices are strange in modern Kanto. But as they keep to themselves and their affiliate mansions around the region, nobody really disturbs them and they don't disturb anyone else. Not that the everyday family member knows of, in any case. Arabelle has an older brother, but it is she who is set to become the next High Priestess of the Sky Trio Order. This means nothing more than a life of constant servitude to her though, since she will have to marry her cousin who is the next High Priest - the one with the real power. For her own personal reasons, she does not want this. Instead, she wants to live like a boy.

            She has always felt confined and restrained, growing up as a gentle, pleasant girl when her brother and his friends were allowed to run around wildly and play with pokémon. The only pokémon she got to play with were skitty or butterfree, and then only under controlled situations. Something else she wanted to do but that was looked down upon by the other women in the mansion, were fiddling with computers and technology. At this day and age it was too bothersome to live without any kind of phone or technology, so the Silverkleins did have all sorts of normal machines in their house, but they had a special person in the family who was responsible for the upkeep. He was called the Warden, but he was really the brother of Arabelle's mother. He was the only one who thought it was ok to teach her technical things and such she spent a lot of time in his lab and garage, growing up, but never talked aloud about it when she was with the rest of her family.

            She signed up for professor Pine's study without telling her family or the Sky Trio Order and ran away into the city on the morning when she was set to meet with the professor at the pokémon center.

            The lively girl hopes to prove to the world that she is just as strong and worthy to be a powerful trainer as any boy is, and just as worthy to be smart and technical. She will try to stay clear from cute, girly things in order to accomplish this faster, even though she might like them on some inner level that she closes away for her purposes now. She is a longing dreamer and tends to worry a lot about things. In spite of this, she will take up challenges whenever she can and strive to become better and better. Her curiosity helps this on, but it also causes inner conflicts between this curiosity and her tendency to worry. The worst thing she knows is when things are unfair, especially between girls and boys.


            Roleplay sample:
            Spoiler:
            The morning sky was orange and clouds drifted gently by up there. Down on the ground, Arabelle's legs kept running.

            She was not used to exercising thoroughly - quite the opposite, as girls of the family were expected to be still and calm, not physically fit. Gender roles. From what Arabelle could recall, she had not even once believed them to be actual things to follow. Just something mankind had made up.

            The city was still calm this early in the morning. On purpose, she had chosen an early time to meet with professor Pine in the Pokémon Center. Still, she was a whole day behind the first trainers to go. Had she gone on the official date, it might have been too suspicious. At least the Warden had a faint idea of what the High Priestess to be wanted to do.

            She wanted to train. Train herself, train her pokémon, train in any way possible. To become stronger than her male relatives and show the Silverklein family that they were wrong in forcing these confined roles upon the sexes.

            Still, she had her doubts about her reasons. What if she was wrong? She hadn't really realized how difficult this quest might be yet. What if she was forced to give up along the way? Well... that's that. Then. Not now.

            Now, the doors to the PokémonCenter slid open in front of her. The center was open 24/7. Of course. Trainers could come in with hurt pokémon at any time. If only humans were so easy to heal as pokémon were. But they were not beings of energy in the same way. Really strange, that. There were some scribblings on the matter in old texts that Arabelle had been forced to read as part of her homeschooling in the Order...

            No. Not now!

            Now, the white coat of the professor made her easy to distinguish as she leaned on the counter, talking to a nurse. She looked tired. Maybe this time of day was early even for hard working pokémon professors?

            "Hello, madam professor," Arabelle announced her presence with, bowing ever so slightly as she came to a stop only a meter away from the older woman.

            Pine turned to look at her with a slightly surprised face which then cracked up into a warm smile. "Hello there! You must be Arabelle Silverklein, am I-"

            "Yes, you are correct, professor, but please, uh..." The girl stepped a little bit closer and looked around with a wrinkled forehead. "Keep it down, because I'm... Well... Not supposed to be here."

            Pine looked at her carefully for a few seconds before sighing and smiling again. "I see. Don't you worry. I have met many aspiring trainers already, who set off yesterday on a journey they won't quite understand for some time. No one really understands what a journey I am asking of you. Yet, you all push on and bravely face new challenges every day..."

            The professor was drifting off into her thoughts until Arabelle cleared her throat with an excusing smile that brought the woman back, apologizing.

            "When I heard that a member of the Silverklein family was coming to take up my offer, I thought they were sending you with a full escort and under pompous conditions, haha... I see that it's not the case. Nevertheless, I have prepared a pokémon for you which I think your family would be proud to know that you owned."

            She held out a shining pokéball, which Arabelle took with big eyes. She had never owned a pokémon for real before.

            "Charmeleon is now yours. Treat it well and it will turn into a fantastic dragon. Fits your house, doesn't it?"

            Arabelle could see that the professor thought she had matched her up well, so she didn't say anything. Just smiled. In reality though, dragons were kind of the opposite of what her Order liked. Dragons were fierce, dangerous mythical beings while their sky trio of legendary birds were majestic and wise in a more elegant way. At least according to the Order. But she would do her best. She had always been a bit fascinated by tales of dragon trainers anyways.


            Don't mind me, I'm just putting Aberdeen aside for a while to steal Charmeleon create a new character and breathe some fresh air into things.

            By the way, there are now 2 spots open in this RP.

              Hi! Not at all~! Just check out the IC thread and see if you feel like you would like the style of posting we have here (it's been a bit slow lately, is all ^^) and then pick your starter pokémon and player in the first post of the OOC and fill out the Sign Up sheet.
