Belna(ベルナー) Region



Information
After recently finishing Sword & Shield and recently replaying X&Y. I wanted to create a region that had connecting lore to the two other regions. This is probably going to be a very slow-paced project! I'm not confident in my story writing skills or world-building but I know that I'm never going to improve if I don't get my work out there.



Story Information

This Region is based in Belgium.

Aurora & Eclipe, despite being the same story, takes place in two branches; Poke-Shows and Poke-Battles. I know Poke-shows might sound boring to some people, especially if you played it in the games, but I promise to make the route as interesting as possible!



Region History
3,000 years ago a war broke out between two countries. Many lives were lost as the Region surrendered after a powerful attack. The region was left in ruins as fear and anger began to overcome every one. Thus the Awakening of Coloremar. With its inky black figure, the pokemon would blend itself into the shadows of the forest and strike at random. Coloremar would wreak havoc across the remains of the region and the royal family did nothing about it. It was theorized that the King's bitterness towards the Region’s loss was enough to awaken the rogue pokemon.

The Belrians grew more and more restless with their silence, everyday citizens would plead for them to do something but to no avail. The Cycle would continue on for years, Coloremar would strike, more lives were lost, and despair would only get worse. Eventually, one soldier had enough and planned to flee the country with his family. While finding a safe path, the soldier stumbled across an injured pokemon. Although he had hesitated to help it, he couldn’t in good conscious leave the poor pokemon behind. He would tend to it every night with growing guilt of the thought he would even think about abandoning the civilians he had protected for so many years. Now desperate, the soldier needed to step for his Region if he wanted them to survive.
The soldier started to form a rebellion with the few soldiers and civilians that took his side. The news of a growing rebellion quickly reached the King. The King was furious that his people would even dare to go against him.

The rebellion quickly came and the Citizens seemed to be winning under the Soldier’s lead. The King’s wrath grew so to the point that he went insane. His insanity was enough to power the Coloremar further to the point that he was able to control it. He uses this newfound power and attacks the opposing citizens. The Soldier that formed the rebellion was severely hurt during a retreat and used himself as a sacrifice. Left for dead, the soldier prays to the night sky filled with falling stars, in hopes that this chaos will come to an end.
As he holds one of the stars that has fallen into his hand close to his heart, a blurry white figure approaches him. The only thing he could make out was its fiery eyes. The soldier reached out for the pokemon’s help. In what he assumed were his final moments, he asked for the pokemon to lead the rest of the rebellion to victory.

Not wanting to leave the soldier that helped them when they needed him, Lanssaert healed the fallen soldier and brought him towards the victory Belrians fought for. Lanssaert sealed away Coloremar before leaving a single black scale/small white feather(Depending on what game you picked).
As peace slowly returned to the region, the King and his family were exiled and the Soldier was made the new King, with the promise of guiding Belna into a better path.



Legndaries

  • Coloremar (Colorobetch+Cauchemar)

Dark-Ice type Pokémon Awakened and powered by people’s anger and hate. The Pokémon will take the form of its real-life counterpart just without the human head. Instead of its pale white skin, it will be covered in Black scales.

  • Lanssaert(Landvættir+Ossaert)

A Fairy-Fire type Pokémon born as a counter to Coloremar. A white dog with feathers instead of fur, it’s most notable feature is its fiery eyes. It’s noted that anyone who holds one of its feathers will gain a future with great fortune.



Poke-Dex will be next.

Gym/Show Leaders
  • Gym/Show challenge work similar to Galar’s League. The only way you can get endorsed is by challenging the Normal Type leaders (Unless you have other connections within the league). There is a time limit to receive your endorsement, so you must work fast(If the player fails three times it’s an automatic game over).
  • There will be uniforms for the Gym challengers, but they get to customize them and even add sponsors as they progress through the league.
  • For Show Challengers, they do not have uniforms. Each gym will have a select amount of clothes for the challengers to pick from. However, once they make it to the Champion cup they are free to create whatever outfit they want.



{!}Note for those taking the show route: While still holding some elements of a traditional battle, each show has different requirements. If you meet them, you’ll gain boosts that could help you through the battle. If you don’t meet them your stats could decrease. (I’m still struggling a bit with this route so I’m open to suggestions for this route)
[!] Note for both routes: You can challenge the gyms as many times as you want after you complete the story. You could also take the opposite route if you so choose.

Since this is the first gym you are challenging Michel doesn't really set a requirement.

Psychic Type Show/Gym leader Baz:

Rival(s):


Show Rival Aline
A hot-tempered girl who has nothing but good intentions. She wants to show all of Belna that Dark-type trainers aren’t all bad people. When doing shows, she always has a cool and tough appearance.
Her team - Belrian Shinx, Eevee(Umbreon), Sharpedo, Suidoar, Deino, and Morpeko.

Suidoar is actually her first pokemon. It just followed her home after she saved it from rushing water.
  • If Aline loses to you two or three times, she will add more pokemon that have an advantage to your Starter. If you lose to her two or three times she will start using pokemon weaker to your starter.


Battle Rival Casper
A soft and gentle boy who wants to prove to Aline and Audrick/Marie that he’s strong. He constantly doubts himself but will always make an effort to improve himself and his team.
His team- Golpuff(or pokemon weaker to siblings starter), Lapras, Slugma, Darmanitan, Sliggoo, and Belrian Mareep.
  • Casper will always change his team no matter if he wins or loses a battle against you. The reason for this is because of his battles with Aline and Audrick/Marie.


Male default: Audrick
Audrick tends to fall into the typical sibling role. While he enjoys picking on Marie, he does want to see her grow and succeed. When taking the Show route, Audrick likes to dress in a Handsome(Beauty) and Clever style.
Audrick’s default team- Chorter(Pokemon strong to starter), Dewgong, Salazzle, Faetalis, Dragonair, and Ampox.
  • Audrick has a bit of an ego so he won't change his team until he loses to your character at least three times.


Female default: Marie
Marie, while being the softer twin, can still have a powerful stance. She’s quick to jump into action and tries to defuse any situation as long as Audrick isn’t there to antagonize her. While taking the show route, Marie will dress in a Cute and Clever style.
Marie’s default team - Scormalia(Pokemon stronger to Caspers’ starter), Phanpy, Mantyke, Absol, Faetalis, and Belrian Politoed.
  • Marie will change her team around the least. She gets attached to her team pretty easily and would rather train her team to their best.



Evil Team Wrath:

I had a concept for them but I don't think it works anymore. Open for suggestions!


Exiled Jules
Jules is trying to reclaim his spot as the rightful heir of the region and he will show no mercy.
Team: Sirfetch'd, Grimmsnarl, The player's starter, Aegislash, Luxray, Escavalier.


Grunts:
Generations of long time followers of the exiled royal family. To this day they believe that the true King/Queen will arrive.
Will switch around from
Fraxure, Zweilous, Doublade, Umbreon, Sharpedo, and Pawniard



Admin: ????
N/A
Admin team: Gardevoir, Absol, Roserade, Mismagius, and Chandelure.



Other Character(s):


Players Mom
The player’s mom is a jeweler. While she’s seen at home with the player at the start of the story., once the player gains the Starter Key, she’ll be seen at her shop throughout the story. You can buy some held items and poke-show stuff from her. you'll see your dad if you beat the game.


Professor Fir
Professor of Pokemon History & Mythology. He would have endorsed you and your friends since he knew you for a very long time, but Aline, Casper, and Audrick/Marie (and you if you pick the option) protested against it.
  • He doesn’t battle with the player but he always has a Hibowl by his side.


Historian Amir
Professor Fir’s right-hand man. Well versed in Belna’s history. Will get very angry if you question him ever so slightly.
His Team: Gardevoir and Trevenant
  • Will only help your character in a pokemon battle once or twice.


Princess Mila
The next heir to the throne. Tired of her guards and her duties.
Mila will battle alongside you from time to time.
Her team: Belette, Hatenna, Cramorant, and Oricorio(Sensu Style).
  • Mila is new to pokemon battles so she’ll change her team based on your recommendations.


Royal Guards
Royal guards aren’t really a big problem, you’ll have to fight them from time to time. Sometimes you’ll have to fight them in pairs, singles, and sometimes even single double battles.
Their teams will switch from:
Kingdra, Rapidash, Stalline, Gallade, Roserade, Weavile, and Froslass




Region map coming hopefully!
