    Past of the Past



    Plot

    3 years before the events of Gold and Silver...

    "Welcome to wild Johto Region. I am Professor Elm. I reach out to you to ask if you are interested in helping me. See, Professor Oak gave me this Encyclopedia, the Pokedex. I would like for you to fill it out while helping people around the Johto Region. Don't worry, i will give you a Pokemon. With it, you shall see the wild landscape of the Johto Region, face new challenges, and face the Pokemon League. Are you up to the challenge? Are you ready to face adversities?"


    Setting

    Basically, this is a Johto Journey that happens 3 years before the events of Gold And Silver, meaning it's one year before the events of Red and Blue. You will traverse through the wild landscapes of Johto, and see the more undeveloped side of it, while helping the citizens to develop, and fending off wild Pokemon. Are you willing to risk your life against wild raging pokemon for the sake of the cities? Are you willing to take on the harsh league? Are you willing to face Team Rocket and it's Leader, Madame Boss? And what is those Pokemon Flying Through the sky? And those four pokemon whose roaring echoes through the Johto Region? What is that green dragon Pokemon that the Pokemon League Federation is investigating? And what secrets hide on the Ruins of Alph? It only takes great trainers to find answers to these questions and even other questions in this Johto Region. It is up to you to rise up, and fight against all adversities.


    Rules

    Don't Godmod. If you get hurt by an Ursaring, it SHOULD hurt, not just shake it off like nothing.
    Don't Powerplay. While yes, there are moments where battles are easy, such as battling like a Buhi, it's not supposed for you to steamroll every gym or battle ahead of you. You may come upon strong fights against strong opponents, such as a Dragonite, or a Kingdra, or heck, even a Sudowoodo can be hard.
    Don't Insult Roleplayers. While insulting a character inside the RP, such as Character A calls Character B an idiot, you should not pull it out of the RP. So don't insult RPers, insult characters, and only do it inside your character.
    This RP is M Rated in almost every aspect except one, which is Romance, which is T rated. So no going past the first base, which is kissing. There are children watching, okay?
    The Capture Attempts will be evaluated, and they must end with the ball shaking. Afterwards, we will evaluate the capture, and if it was not good enough, it will escape. If the capture attempt was great, then it's captured.
    No Mary Sues or Gary Stus. Nobody likes those. be it GMs or be it RPers.
    We want an RP Sample. If you have had one back in the storage, go fetch it. Though probably you are best off as writing a new one, in case you have thousands of posts. Up to you.
    Don't try to be the center of the attentions. Sure, your character may be a bit too diva, or may be having the charisma, but we don't want people who are in the center of the spotlight all the time. You don't need to be in the center all the times.
    JPs are acceptable, but please, don't make them drag for months and months. These are evil JPs, and we need to move along. While we accept you taking some time, don't take the whole year, okay?
    We give the maximum two weeks for posting. However, should you need to take more time due to inconvenience, warn me by PMs or on the OOC, and give me a good reason.
    The Sets are Sun and Moon, for two reasons. One, for easing the learning of moves for Beta Pokemon, and two, players who are new to Pokemon and RPing don't know past gen sets, so we're making this easier for everyone.
    Gyms are Like Captures. Not all Victories at the gym mean you won the badge, and not all losses mean you don't get the badge, though most of the times is the case. Gyms are more a test of you and your Pokemon, how they can surpass adversities together. Once you defeat the Leader's Final Pokemon, you must end your post for the Gym Battle to be evaluated.
    There will be a sort of mission system, or we are better off calling em Side-quests. Those Side-quests are good for getting prizes, such as a wild Pokemon Encounter, an egg, a stone, or a skate, etc. Other Side-quests are not that great in prizes, but i dunno, up to you.
    Lastly, this RP is Hybrid. As in, while most of it is Sandbox based, there are some real interesting Chapter Based factors in it, specially when it comes to the plot.
    Lasty, for sure this time, have fun.


    New Beta Pokemon and Variations Available

    These Pokemon vary from entirely new Pokemon to other variants. For example, a Brown and Blue Sneasel is entirely different from a normal Sneasel, and even has a different typing. This pad that is following will include all information for The Pokemon upcoming, from what Pokemon they share moves with, to their typing, to their evolution lines, and to their information gathered up to now. Remember that some of these Variants aren't noticeable at first sight, but upon closer inspection, you may find the differences. Should you want to know which differences they are, contact the GM, and he shall notice you what is different and what is not.

    Check this Pad Out for the full info.


    SU Example

    Name: Please inform us your first and last names. Middle name is optional. Basically, we want your full name, okay?

    Age: Nowhere bellow 16 Years old. The Region itself is not safe enough still for a 10 year old.

    Gender: Are you a girl? Are you a boy? Are you a gender less teenager? Are you a robot? Am we ever gonna run out of questions?

    Sexuality: Now this is optional. What we mean with this is that are you either interested in girls, boys, both, or none? Basically, Hetero, Homo, Bi, Bi Curious or Asexual.

    Appearance: In the bare minimum a 1-2 paragraph description to make you look neatly nice. Appearances work too, should you want to spare you from writing and should you actually have an image.

    Personality: In the bare minimum, we want two paragraphs about your character's way to act, way to react, way to socialize, everything Personality-wise. Whatever floats your boat under the rules, my friend.

    Backstory: Please, give us a minimum of 2 paragraphs about your character's past. We like to know more about our Dex Holders and how they lived, as well as their problems in the past.

    Goals: What brought you into this amazing Journey? We want to know more about you and what made you sought for a wild adventure in Johto? Do you want to become the best? Do you want to see the world? Do you want to explore more about Pokemon?

    Inventory: Everyone has one. Asides from the letter contacting you to come to Silent Hills, what do you have on your inventory that's important to you? Perhaps you carry a random stick, or maybe you have a lucky amulet. After all, who comes to somewhere they don't know the exact location with empty pockets?

    Hometown: Where are you from? As far as for location wise, i'd be safe in picking either a town in Johto, a location in Kanto or a town in the Sevii Islands (Since these were confirmed to actually have been supposed to be in the first games).

    Family: It's not overly important, but is there anyone you consider family to you?

    Starter Pokemon: Alright, what was the choice you picked for your companion? This is vary important, as he shall accompany you as your friend, your first pokemon, your brother in this adventure. Since there is no limited picks, just pick out of these 6 which you like the best, and don't worry about others getting the same starter: Happa, Honoguma, Kurusu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur. Please state the first 3 level up moves and an egg moves according normal (If it's a Beta Pokemon or a variant, please use the information given in the New/Old Pokemon Etherpad, as these pads will inform you what moves this pokemon shares with other Evolution Lines.), and then state the Pokemon's Gender, the Pokemon's Nickname, and the Pokemon's Nature/Personality. This last part is important, as it will determine on how you and your Pokemon will link together, thus giving either ease or difficulty on battles and the adventure overhaul.

    Others: Anything else that you thought that would not fit on other categories that you want to state in this section?

    RP Sample: Please, put your Roleplay Sample here. I think you know how it works, if not, then contact a GM.

      I've been waiting for this! I hope my paragraphs are long enough!

      Name: Kazuko Himura

      Age: 18

      Gender: Female

      Sexuality: Heteromantic Heterosexual

      Appearance: http://orig08.deviantart.net/b6b3/f/2017/188/4/a/rp_image_the_past_of_the_past_by_vctzero-dbf8bfi.png (yes, that’s my DA account. LMAO older than they look! Also, thinner than the model can show. Curse you lack of options.)

      Personality: Kazuko is generally kind and easygoing, commonly rolling with the punches, though she has a tendency to snark at things when annoyed, exasperated, in pain, etc. She’s not an extrovert, but she’s not an introvert either, as she won’t mind traveling either alone or with other trainers. Her newfound lease on life after arriving in Johto gives her a strong optimistic streak.

      She tends to get embarrassed easily, and has major issues with forced captivity (barring pokeballs) due to some past-related issues (See: backstory). She hates seeing her loved ones hurt, whether human or Pokemon, and will often go out of her way to protect them, sometimes with no regard to her own physical, mental, or emotional well-being.

      Backstory: Having ended up with some issues related to her appetite (a drastic increase with some extra risks), her mother would keep her on a short leash out of fear and worry-the farthest she’s ever gone in the world was to the shore of Route 19. While Kazuko did have friends, they all went on their own journeys at age 16, while she was held back. This caused her relationship with her mom to become strained.

      Things may have seemed dull for her at first, until one day when she managed to get ahold of the letter to Silent Hills, long before her mom could. She hid it successfully in her room until the time came, where she snuck out of her home. Having no Pokemon of her own made the journey difficult-at first-until one of her old friends escorted her to Vermilion City, where she boarded the SS Aqua and was finally on her own for the first time in her life.

      Goals: “I’ve been mostly padded down my whole life due to health reasons, and I wish to see more of the world, and meet lots of different Pokemon, maybe make some new friends as well-of all kinds!”

      Inventory: A couple boxes of snacks, 3 additional hair ties

      Hometown: Fuschia City

      Family: Her mom, Akemi Himura. Her dad is assumed to be on his own journey. (Name: Itsuki Himura)

      Starter Pokemon: Honoguma
      Moveset:
      Ember, Scratch, Tackle and Growl
      Gender: Male
      Nature: Docile

      Others: N/A

      RP Sample: “Yuu, I wasn’t expecting you back in Kanto for another year, if your letter was correct.” Kazuko was surprised, she was expecting the trip to Vermillion to be much more harrowing. Sneaking out of her home, then leaving Fuschia City without anyone noticing was hard enough, getting through Route 15 onwards would be even harder. 5 long routes without any Pokemon would be difficult. “Thank you so much for your offer, is there any way I can repay you?” Kazuko might not have much, but she would find some way to repay her friend for helping her out, especially given how harrowing Routes 12-15 were. And LONG, were they!

        Kazu, nice SU. I actually like the SU, despite a little quirks there and here, but overhaul okay. While i am surprised by the choice of appearance (Not many people use models), i am sorry to say that you are Pending. RP Samples must have at the very least, 100 Words, like all RP Post. Feel free to try again, but yeah. Here's a hint, use a word counter, it's useful for those who struggle, or just feel like need some help overhaul. I am hoping to see new Versions of the SU, as i do like the character itself.

            At least the RP Sample has the least amount of characters to be Accepted. I can see that you might be restarting as an RPer. Well, i wish you the best of luck during this experience, and hope that you get used to PC yet again, and that my RP helps you get used to PC as well.

              Yeah, it's a restart. A toxic fandom caused me to take a hiatus.

              Name: Daisy-May Bradley

              Age: 16

              Gender: Female

              Appearance:

              Personality: Daisy-May is, in essence, a spoiled brat. Having grown up with everything handed to her on a silver platter, she's never once had to hear the word no or have things not go her way. She looks down on everyone else, especially those living in poverty. She believes that everyone else only exists to do her bidding.

              Daisy is rude to people she doesn't consider worth her time. She's incredibly blunt with her opinions and doesn't have a censor when it comes to what she should and shouldn't say. She tends to judge others based on their appearance and flirts with guys that she considers worth her time, willing to do whatever she has to to make them “hers”.

              Backstory: Daisy-May is the second-youngest of the wealthy Bradley family. From a young age, she was taught that she was the best, and therefore deserved nothing but the best. Her entire life, all she's had to do is snap her fingers and a loyal butler would bring her whatever she wanted. Her mother taught her that a lady should never mess up her manicure and leave the dirty work to those below her.

              Her older sister was an entrepreneur, selling imported flowers, and her brother helped their father with the family business. Her life was pretty boring until the birth of her younger sister Bella. Suddenly her family was too busy focusing on a smelly baby to pay attention to her. She was the only one to notice her brother receiving a letter inviting him to Silent Hills. He claimed to be too busy to deal with a journey, so Daisy-May decided to take his place to take a break and get away from her family (and to tell the world that the Bradley family is superior in every way).

              Goals: To reinforce the idea that her family is the best of the best, and that everyone should pay attention to her and only her.

              Inventory: makeup kit, credit card, extra clothes

              Hometown: Goldenrod City

              Family: Misty Bradley, mother and stay-at-home wife. Marcus Bradley, father and executive businessman. Rosemarie Bradley, older sister (19). Liam Bradley, older brother (18). Bella Bradley, younger sister (newborn).

              Starter Pokemon: Kurusu ♀(Maki)
              Moveset: Defense Curl
              Scratch
              Leer
              Water Gun
              Nature: Rash

                Neat! Seeing this, Daisy-May is Accepted! Can't wait to see her in action.

                Edit: Here it is.

                Name: Tyson Larx Tyrone

                Age: 17.

                Gender: Male

                Sexuality: He's Heterosexual

                Appearance:
                Spoiler:


                Personality: Tyson is a lazy person who gives no cares to what happens anymore, this being to the fact that he started to believe that there was no meaning in trying, since things would be the same. He sleeps every time he finds it possible to do so, and he is a bit of a sweet tooth, as in, loves food, but not to the extreme.

                This Said, Tyson can be a loving person. He cares for those he likes, and thus tries to help them even if "it does not change the setting" as he says. He is great at remembering the Pokemon Typing according to weaknesses and such, having it recorded on his head. He lacks Battle Skills, but, to be honest, everyone's a rookie once in a while. Does not give a hell about what the person is in terms of personality.

                Backstory: Now Tyson wasn't always this devoid of energy. He once was an energetic person. He never was poor, but he also wasn't rich. However, as he grew up, and was forced to make a harsh decision on saving his mother and watching his father die due to not being able to save both, he became more devoid of energy, and thus, stopped caring about... Trying. Heck, there were even times where he simply did not go to school cause he "didn't care about trying to go". Things did not sound promising.

                Turning 14, the boy eventually became slightly fan of Pokemon in general, specially in remembering the so famous "Type Chart" on top of his head. Still devoid of energy, he simply did not try in getting a Pokemon. His mother then eventually sent a letter to Professor Oak, but, due to a mistake in the mails, the letter was sent to Professor Elm. Elm then sent a letter back, asking Tyson to take on an adventure that would give him energy, and his help would be appreciated. Tyson just shrugged, got his butt off the room, and went to Johto, taking the long Routes 27 and 28 towards Silent Hills.

                Goals: Asides from seeing the world, Tyson's just rolling with it.

                Inventory: Tyson carries a Poke Gear for his mother to contact him, who's also worried sick. He also carries a notebook.

                Hometown: Despite having been born in Celadon City, Tyson lived most of his time in Four Island, also known as Floe Island.

                Family: Mother, Step-Father, Half-Younger Sister, Older Brother.

                Starter Pokemon: Honoguma (Flare) | Male | Hasty | Moves: Scratch, Tackle, Ember, Leer
                Appearance:
                Spoiler:


                Others: Nothing as far as i know.

                RP Sample: I hope you enjoy smoking mafia birds.

                With My SU done, i shall go and add it.

                  Here's your fourth, hon.
                  TOHRU AYANO
                  FEMALE / 23 YRS / @ VIRIDIAN CITY

                  LOOK OUT FOR FLOATS

                  Appearance:
                  Lithe at a precise five feet; warm beige complexion. Large almond eyes. (Dilated pupils? No; no, you must be hallucinating.) Broad forehead. Pierced ears and pampered nails. Long-hanging tousle of hair with bang shape evident, but ramshackle; spun strands styled like horns. Inconspicuous tattoo beneath rightmost clavicle. Beautified face: dark lipstick, winged eyeliner, penciled-in eyebrows; an opus comprised of curves and thick lines, though could be neater. Below-shoulder tapers into blatant, precarious gangliness; gaunt arms, torso, and waist. Bouffant sweatshirt draped over, obscuring figure. Hulking spiked footwear contradicts fragility. Face descends; eyes caught in projected light of a phone screen.

                  Personality:
                  A critical thinker, though one who takes an instinctual approach to most confrontations. Apathetic for her own well-being with a spacey disposition belying her constant acuity, wide eyes cast downwards, yet absorbing all directions. She finds herself regularly engaged in the goings-on of others. This can be beneficial for them — she has found herself a common advice-dispenser and conflict-diffuser within her friend group — while self-destructive and disquieting for Tohru. Her mind is always attuned to the world around her, out of empathy, out of fear; she doesn’t want to see those flashing lights ever again, and she never intended to lose her goddamn future to such a risible mistake; they’re going to trail her now, constantly, and hiding within the fog of Silent Hills won’t throw the Houndour off the trail. But the anxiety is a minor thing, she swears by that. She's only always on-guard and guarded.

                  Don’t approach Miss Anayo as if you think you know her; she hates that, she has too much pride for that. She can be friendly, but she’s not necessarily looking for friends, unless they’re looking for her — Tohru rarely intends dismissiveness, but the distance she retains from you is purposeful. Yet, ask her a question, and she will respond. Combined self-consciousness and self-importance necessitates self-worth, after all; it’s not say she’s always ingenuous, just taking every opportunity to find the latter.
                  Backstory:
                  Born in the ‘Emerald Capital’ of Viridian, and likewise returned there in late adolescence with the city’s renown in the technological boom of the ‘90’s. Tohru discovered a drive for computer programming in her late teens, strong enough to propel her through higher learning with the support of her parents. In-retrospect, she had been born with that silicone spoon in her mouth — her mother, delivered unto a prodigious lineage dating back to Kanto’s feudal ages; her father, an immigrant turned influence within the Pokémon research community. It may have been the up-and-coming Dr. Elm that introduced lab assistant Ayano Kaido to then-Fujimoto Jin. He confided in his daughter afterwards: “I honestly felt homely next to her! I was a runaway, a straggler just trying to make a name for myself; she was born into finesse. She’s a truly powerful woman.” One who took the Johto native under her wing. And, placid to her family’s dissention, her response was the erasure of their name from hers, the total embrace of humble lifestyle. The couple joined the sea of green-shingled roofs, neighbors leering out, over the years, tension building, for there entered a couple that ordered their names like the ‘johts’ did, that set aside breakfast by dawn and lanterns by dusk, all to feed and guide the ‘Rainbow Empress.’ Such secular absurdity, and especially the conceit in which the savage immigrant rose to greet them with thinned eyes and catty grin. For so long, he was illegal; before the annexation, he was alien. But in ‘86, the dynamics changed without the regressive Kantonians’ consent, and in response, they funneled their bemusement into violent assault on Kaido’s person. His firstborn daughter was on the front porch when it happened.
                  That moment was provocative; Jin demanded the family move north to Vermillion City where close affiliation with Johto-native merchants made its coastline the most colorful and culturally-enriched in all of Kanto. Yasu was born here, the mischief-maker in resolute pursuit after her strides. Of course, his favorite parts of Vermillion were the Pokémon: the ripples in the bay water cast by Magikarp — maybe even Dratini —, the eggs one of Father’s coworkers might be cradling that he’d warn the boy not to touch. The idea of Pokémon as compatriots was an enigmatic one to Tohru at first. It was easy to feel like an outsider peering inwards when perusing the full-color encyclopedia wrestled from her father’s office and brother’s grabby hands. Anayo Kaido had a devotion to these bug-eyed animals, rooted in ages of ancestry, spiritual and scientific belief, all which he could discuss for hours until it overwhelmed his hapless daughter. It was Mother whom appealed to her: “They’re nothing like you or I, which is why we have to work with them to make the world a better place for both of us. We’re not the better species, you know.” The reason why, then, didn’t they let any into the house? “Because some Pokémon choose to be wild.” But some chose to partner with humans, and the capsules were a symbol of that bond. All this technology — and both she and her father agreed here — was emblematic of a link between people and Pokémon that transcends physicality. Tohru could thank her culture and her beloved family for enlightening her to the perspective she now holds, and yet Tohru Anayo’s gratitude for them is challenged in the manner of which their name follows her own. When enrolled in school, Mister and Missus Anayo sat her and Yasu down, asked whether they wanted to set pride before comfort or do as the Kantonians did, and to the latter both siblings agreed. Hence, on her first report card: Tohro Anayo.
                  Pre-university, Tohru interned at Silph Co. in Saffron; post-university, she joined Masaki Sonezaki’s independent programming team with development of the first Pokémon Storage System (to which Masaki later adopted total credit for after a legal dispute with its remaining members.) A controversy erupted after the prototype’s release: a member of a rivalling indie company claimed Masaki’s group was practicing substance abuse, having seen “smoke in the windows.” Casual consumption of performance-upping drugs intended for Pokémon had become a massive issue amongst Kantonian youth with access to a Pokémart. Viridian’s police force was swiftly involved. Sure enough, further investigation uncovered pills callously thrown in a garbage bin rounding Masaki’s headquarters. This was later traced to Miss Anayo herself, who claimed sifting through personal property was an affront to her rights, and as correct as she was with charges being dropped after testimony, her association with drug abuse at all made her a scapegoat for her coworkers. Masaki promptly dropped her from the project. A dejected Tohru holed herself at her parents’ for about a year before a familiar face arose from the shadows of Johto: Dr. Elm, the same who had granted opportunity to her father, had signed a letter summoning her overseas. It could have been for any reason, but Elm didn’t want programming assistance, instead projecting an ulterior motive that coincided with an entirely different career path — an entirely new one, at that; Pokémon Training for profit was unheard of, but with the growing proliferation of the Indigo League, it was easy to premeditate a shift in expectation. Once-committed family men were already hitting the road as if a new gold fever was upon them. Like them, Tohru followed the money.

                  Family:
                  MOTHER // FATHER // UNCLE // BROTHER
                  Inventory:
                  ---------------
                  Early Capsule Model — Is this human supremacy epitomized, holding power at the press of a button and crank of a knob? At any rate, Daddy's had this for years. It's a heirloom evocative of early Johtonese heritage.
                  Wooden Ofuda — Engrained in it are the symbols "虹の皇后." There's a string attached, but I don't really wear this.
                  Guard Spec x4 — Powerful narcotics designed to prevent performance reduction when consumed. Don't worry though; I'm clean, I swear.
                  X-Accuracy x2 — Expensive, fast-acting stimulants that sharpen awareness and reflexes once consumed. Don't worry though; I'm clean, I swear.
                  Packed Lunch — Fruit; tea biscuits; half a sandwich, with love from Mom. She even removed the crust (my favorite part)...
                  Cosmetics Pouch
                  Clutch Change Purse
                  'Nokichu 9000' Cellular Smartphone

                  Goals:
                  --- Kick any chemical dependency (or not).
                  --- Learn self-reliance.
                  --- Gauge the profitability of becoming 'Pokémon Master'.

                  We're holding a HAPPA hostage for you!

                  the Teeny Leaf Pokémon
                  GROWL / TACKLE / RAZOR LEAF / COUNTER
                  Chiko♂ — Lax
                  Doesn't seem to mind companionship, though responds indifferently to most interaction. Overall docility may predate a comfortable alliance.

                  Other:
                  "Anything else that you thought would not fit an other categories that you are in want of stating?"
                  --------"Don't patronize me, hon.
                  --------"Here's a sample of what I'm capable of."
                  image credit: [sugarglum] // [Nidrax]
                  Some added context for the sample: it's a post from a roleplay on a different site. My character's name is (was?) Kimber Q. Comberbache; the idea was for him and the rest of the cast to start in this 'Temple of Life' location.

                  Feel free, if you have any preguantas o problemos, to lemme hear 'em, amigo!

                        ►Backstory
                        > Having left his home and family on the tiny Floe Island at the age of fourteen, Riven Wynn had taken his first journey with the Charmander and Dratini given to him by his parents. He quickly rose through the ranks as a pretty-faced teen with ruthless strategies and equally fierce Pokémon. Never giving his opponents a chance to rest and never sharing his secret methods for raising his Pokémon, Riven and his team took on the Pokémon League challenge with aplomb, accepting battles from any who passed by him wanting. One by one, gym leaders fell, and Riven had a claim to fame and an attitude to match. The Indigo Plateau's Elite Four was the only challenge he felt he truly faced, but even they couldn't wall off Riven and his team's power and determination forever. In three years, Riven had travelled thousands of miles on foot, become a television celebrity, and ultimately took the title of Champion of the Kanto and Johto regions.

                        > Months after maintaining his esteemed position in widely-broadcasted challenges, Riven was bored, becoming more of a caretaker than a trainer when many potential challengers couldn't even make it to him. In private, he took to crossdressing, making many of his own clothes, as well. Devising a plan to walk amongst the masses once more without a crowd gathering on a regular basis, he decided to take a leave of absence from the League, leaving his title team in the care of the Elite Four. Bringing with him the offspring of his original two Pokémon, along with a Key Stone and his now-Charizard's Mega Stone, Riven wants his newborn Pokémon to see the world as he did, and maybe find a new challenge.

                                Well, didn't take as long as I thought it was. I got excited when I was looking at the pokemon and wanted to go ahead and create an SU.

                                Name: Sora Asai
                                Age: 18.
                                Gender: Male
                                Sexuality: Heterosexual (Which also means straight, if you are like me and didn't know.)
                                Appearance:
                                Spoiler:

                                His hair is black instead of the color in the picture. He is also a bit more muscular than the guy in the picture.

                                Personality: Being an older brother, Sora is usually kind to those younger than he is. He still tends to get along with anyone who is kind. He doesn't really get along with know-it-alls or people who believe they are better than everyone else. He loves making friends and will do what it takes to keep them safe. He tends to care more about his family than those he doesn't know though. Especially his little sister who he gets along well with.

                                Sora is extremly active and loves to explore anytime the chance comes up. He knows the type chart well, but he doesn't have the battle stratgy to back up his knowledge. He tends to be unpredictable in battles because he doesn't plan too much in advanced. That being said, this can become a problem when he acts without thinking and will sometimes lead him into a situation that is worse or cause him to get hurt.

                                When he loses in a battle or anything that should make him unhappy, he tends to hide it and act as if everything is ok. However, this is only a ploy to hide the disappointment in himself. This will wear him down over time if the mistake that was made is not corrected. Sometimes his feelings are true as not everything will disappoint him; only mistakes in something that is fond of.


                                Backstory:
                                Growing up in Mahogany Town, he has become accustomed to small towns as well as the colder weather that they tend to have up north, especially around Ice Path. This also led him to becoming a fan of Ice Pokemon. However, that was not the only he was fond of Ice Pokemon.

                                When he was 10, he snuck out one night to explore the forest north of the town. It was a winter night and the moon was full. He climbed a tree and a limb broke, sending him into the freezing Lake of Rage. Instantly, he became extremely cold and unable to move. A Gyarados appeared from the dark depths of the water and started to attack. Sora thought he was dead, but right when he was about to be eaten, a Ice Beam shot out from the trees and scared the Gyarados off, the pokemon or trainer then pulled him out of the water. When Sora woke up, he was at home in a make shift pallet in front of his fire place.

                                As he got older, he started to help his mother, along with his younger sister, at their bakery. He started to study about pokemon and became more interested in following his father's footsteps who he had not seen since he was 4.

                                Goals: He wants to learn all he can about Ice Pokemon. His goal is to catch every single Ice Pokemon in existence. He also wants to become a cook like his mother and learn more recipes.

                                Inventory:
                                ~ He tends to carry around notebooks to write down recipes and other foods.
                                ~ He carries a list of known Ice Type Pokemon.
                                ~ Poke-Gear
                                ~ A picture that his sister drew for him that showed a very detailed picture of him and her together with various Ice Pokemon.

                                Hometown: Mahogany Town, Johto.

                                Family:
                                Yuki Asai - 15 year old sister.
                                Ayame Asai - Mother
                                Tatsu Asai - Father

                                Starter Pokemon:
                                Kurusu/Male
                                Name: Koru
                                Nature: Modest
                                Attacks: Powder Snow, Headbutt, Water Gun, Water Pulse

                                Others: None

                                RP Sample:
                                Probably one of my favorite RP Posts, I have ever done.

                                  I didn't realize: there's no indication that one of the current 'sidequests' has been claimed (by yours truly) on the in-character thread prior to, of course, reading what's there.

                                  So I'll announce here on the out-of-character thread — and encourage others who might choose a 'sidequest' in the near future — that Tohru has chosen "A Cherry Walk," and apologize if not doing so earlier caused any confusion.

                                  (I hate to 'claim' anything, really, but I suppose that's how things are organized here.)

                                    IT is fine. I should have realized that before. But yes, if you need a Quest that has a player limit, pm, vm or dm me, or of course, ask in the Discord Chat, and the first one(s) to get it will partake in it, and i will announce on a new post or edit the latest post of mine from now on. But indeed, to make tradition with stuff:

                                    Quests Taken up so far:

                                    Tohru Ayano has promptly accepted and began the sidequest: "A Cherry Walk"

                                      Alton Marie Mocinno IV
                                      26 - male - bi as hecke


                                      The Moccino family became known as development tycoons in Sinnoh, leading the charge in building iconic landmarks and common constructions for generations. As travel between regions became more regular, Alton IV’s grandmother Katerina decided to pursue opportunities in Kanto as well. Moving her branch of the Mocinnos to Kanto proved fruitful and they eventually expanded their influence into Johto, about twenty-five years before present day. The hope was to make Johto much safer for both adventurers and those going about their daily lives, but not much progress was made before the Johtonese Congregate passed the ban on trainer licenses. While most of the Mocinnos fell back to work in Kanto and Sinnoh, a few stayed in Johto to further develop the likes of Goldenrod and Olivine.

                                      Thus, Alton IV was raised in Goldenrod City. In an effort to give him a “normal” childhood, he received a public education- though his parents made very sure said education was up to their standards by paying for Goldenrod City’s educators to attain higher education themselves. This move had far-reaching, mostly positive consequences, but what mattered to Eleuia and Alton III is that the primary goal was achieved. Alton IV grew to be a hardworking and humble individual with an interest in working within his family’s empire.

                                      Now that the mandate has been lifted, the Mocinnos are at it again with the intent to further develop Johto. Alton is taking on the role of a trainer in order to learn about the current state of the region and understand what people travelling will need during their adventure. He also is taking notes on potential for updating and urbanization. His findings are regularly sent back to his parents in Goldenrod for further discussion.

                                      Alton has his head in the clouds. All the time. He hyper-focuses on ideas often and will spend days doing nothing but chasing them to their conclusion. He’s very practical and hands-on in his work. He genuinely wants to help people and primarily does so through his work. He’s very unsure of himself when it comes to human interaction and doesn’t have many friends, though his extensive family makes up for that.

                                          It seemed like we had unanimous support for this, so I'll post it here: the background for why our characters are currently where they are, as well as general world-building characterizing Johto with a few allusions for what's to come.

                                          Looking forward to an overarching plot, and will contribute wherever I can!

                                          ----------The plot of ‘Past of the Past’ begins two weeks from Tohru Ayano’s arrival in the Johto region on an early-September evening, Tuesday. The Johtonese Congregate lifted a then twenty-year mandate prohibiting the distribution of Training licenses. The merger of Johto’s Lavender League into Kanto’s Battle Coalition produced the popular and profitable Indigo League as the tradition of Pokémon Training proved itself a predominant career opportunity in the midst of economic depression. The League cycle thus continued beyond Johtonese shores where Pokémon were either seen as too holy or too dangerous to be “at an inferior man’s will,” as worded by official legislation.

                                          ----------In the absence of Johto-born Trainers, the United Legion of Trained Rational Academics claimed a high standing in public opinion. In their goal to educate, they issued propaganda through all accessible methods, informing consumers on how best to avoid the feral monsters that had been so idolized throughout history, those that could — would — easily devastate them and their property. They had traction, from the far north in Mahogany Town where it was publicized through the growing influence of electronic news: a little boy had been spontaneously sprang upon by a Gyarados near the Lake of Rage. The Legion’s demand for more barricades, more ranger stakeouts, curfews in highly-populated areas for those under a certain age, slowly prompted action. From the Kanto region, the group “borrowed” the concept of a ‘Pokédex,’ a portable encyclopedia with knowledge on every discovered species, from an “anonymous source,” so true information could be available for all… or, at least, more. Full-body braces were invented for Abra and its evolutionary family, constrictive belts for Machop, Machoke, and Machamp. And the expert opinions of Legion’s elite were being repeated, on the radio, on the news; “It’s just science,” the hosts would claim. “Just ask the United Legion; they’re Professors.”

                                          ----------The Legion’s involvement in Johto incited a new era of wariness amidst its citizens. Pokémon may still be part of many’s lives, but a divide spawned between “ferals” and domesticated Pocket Monsters. The Pokémon of the wild felt this rift and adapted quickly, as Pokémon do, so that tension existed where there had been little. Routes were overgrown, their inhabitants suddenly less obliging when a human trolloped through their territory. A trust had been shattered; the balance between people and Pokémon became, with every moment, less so.

                                          ----------Preceding the mandate’s demolition, conflict within the Legion hit the presses. A “heated debate” about the “ethics” of the organization — consisting of some of the biggest names of Pokémon research — led to many affiliates disassociating themselves from the group and, by extension, their career altogether; whether the two acts of resignation were linked is unknown. It can be theorized that the mass renouncement encouraged the end of the mandate, as the Legion was one of its main proponents. After all, U.L.T.R.A. consists of some of the known world’s most brilliant minds, some of its most privileged, most “in-the-know” individuals, the same with access to technology and knowledge that could have cracked into worlds unseen and found something

                                          ----------In present times, the Legion’s associates have been divided once more in acceptance of the next generation of Trainers. The minority of the already-minimized organization did so with open arms and, in fact, contributed, with the kingpin of the mobilization being Dr. Utsugi Iwata, the group’s youngest. Names were quite literally drawn from a hat, names of those of eligible age from specific locations, all pulled from the region’s database. The adolescents Itsuko proposed from far-off Kanto had some direct connection to him or a close coworker, as vague as those bonds may have been, anything to draw new faces towards Johto’s quickly-rejuvenating League. (Perhaps it was a bit rash to recreate it as instantaneously as the Congregate did, but Kanto’s had single-handedly saved its economy, and that amount of prosperity likely had the government salivating, even when contractual obligation had them booted from the Indigo League affiliation.)

                                          ----------Meanwhile, the cogs of Johtonese society are grinding as methodically as they have been. The obliteration of the two-decade mandate brought little applause. People are too scared to celebrate a decision that could possibly render a group of adolescents gored in the wilderness, because the attacks are increasing, seemingly, every month. If licenses were being forced on the region’s youth, there’d been rioting. Instead, the Legion proposes a “test round.” “Guinea pigs” from the isolated regions of Johto — the walled-in Goldenrod, the isolated Mahogany —, kids from Kanto with even less of a clue of how badly the situation has become. It’s a risk, fighting Pokémon with Pokémon, Itsuki says, but, psyduck it. People are dying, and something needs to be done. There’s something bigger out there that all the Professors know, a group bigger than U.L.T.R.A. that must be stopped. Someone needs to go out there into those wilds, clear those paths, find those beasts and exterminate them until they find out their identities and kill them f— err, find those people foolish enough to wander into the tall grass without a Pokémon, and challenge the gyms. Because someone has to! It’s not just status quo, it’s what it means to be Pokémon Master.

                                            Hey guys, just wondering what the discord was for this RP so I can join, if there is one.

                                            Also if you don't mind, I would like to add this small bit to my character's personality.

                                            "When he loses in a battle or anything that should make him unhappy, he tends to hide it and act as if everything is ok. However, this is only a ploy to hide his disappointment in himself or his true feelings. Which will wear him down over time if the mistake made is not corrected. Sometimes his feelings are true as not everything disappoints him."

                                                Age: 24
                                                Gender: Male / Oblivious

                                                Appearance:
                                                Spoiler:


                                                While his overalls does suggest that he is an organized person, his face looks like the many expressions used by most underachievers. Everything is seemingly black and white and full of lines, because I don't think making things as aesthetic as those above would grant me additional merits.

                                                At 4'5 ft, he is of average stature. A beige fedora covers his deep brown hair and his black beady eyes are impressively watchful. A white shirt is donned from torso to abdomen, a black tie is also wrapped around the shirt's collar while the beige vest partly covers his outer upper garment. A beige trousers runs along till it reaches the ankles, and a pair of brown shoes are something most people will always use to travel around, color part excluded which is up to the wearer's desire.

                                                Personality:
                                                Being held back by his incompetence in following the procedures, he is a quirky figure with the passion of a being who delivers justice into his own hands. Or that is what he always told himself to, for somebody who gets jittery most of the time and blindly suspects 'somewhat' innocent bystanders. Taking too little consideration on countermeasures done given the situation, there is no warning when and why he would bring his 'thunder fist' into action.

                                                Despite the degrading performance, he is not the ultimate dunce by heart and spirit. He may not be the best in his job, but he has shown himself to be both caring and reliable. He can despise anyone, but he never truly looks down on anyone. He is not the cleverest person around, but he is quite diligent. At times he can be a rather pathetic defeatist, but in the end he stays true to his objective. And when someone yells for help, he will rush in to answer the call to save the day.

                                                Orders from his superiors are still to be obeyed, but there are times when he can get reckless -- unaware of the danger ahead. And when he did, they can expect him to do the impossible.


                                                Backstory:
                                                Before he became a detective, he was formerly a driver working in a taxi service called Lumi Cab. Every day was his lousy day, but he didn't look as lazy as many people may seem and got paid fairly for a whole roundabout in the biggest city, Lumiose.

                                                One day, he spent his time to sleep all day in his apartment during a day off. By doing and feeling absolutely nothing, he didn't know that there was a burglar walking behind him and soon knocked him down unconscious with something small but hard. Until the police came, he was found lying down on the floor with a can of lemonade beside him. The medics carried him into the local hospital and nursed him back to health, only to find out that the damage was anything but major -- thus resulting in amnesia.

                                                The day he opened his eyes, the TV was turned on loud by himself unintentionally. The broadcast exhibited a show called 'Alolan Detective Laki', and the first sight of the show after his memory loss has just hatched a will to become somebody else. He felt astonished with the way he would point out the truth and solve the cases, and to be part of the cool guy club, he devoted himself to become fully-fledged detective.

                                                He got up and escaped from the hospital, bringing his rented cloth along as he was chased by the nurses. He went inside a law office, immediately signed up as a detective despite not fulfilling the requirements firsthand, and judging by his demeanor, it was as if he was perfectly confident with the decision he made. As expected, he failed miserably, but the chief noticed his vigor and determination in becoming one of them. From that point, he couldn't be happier to pass with a grim score.

                                                ...That was what the chief claimed. Almost everything seemed to be far fetched and contradictory with his tale -- especially for someone who, in fact lived in Saffron City. Although they somehow were convinced and so bought his story. Just in a mere three days, now he was in charge of investigating anything regarding the fishy activity in Johto. It was indeed seriously odd, no one other than them really knew whatever happened in the actual background. Whether he really fabricated his own history as a facade, or there was actually a hidden intention behind it, everything remained in the dark until anyone tried to bring the truth into light.
