Looks good! Your accepted.

Also you don't have to use Skype for video or voice chatting. We just send text messages to eachother through there mostly.

    Awesome. Thanks. I will try to get a first post up tonight at some point. I need to read some of the posts, so I can get an idea at what time it is ect.

    As for Skype, I didn't know you could send messages through it like that. Maybe I should look into it.



    For some reason or another I cannot get Skype to download on my computer, so you guys will have to work with me. I have a few questions though.

    First off, when we try to catch a pokemon, do we still have to wait for a GM to say if we caught it or not?
    Where are 'The Docks' at? Is that Oak Town? I thought it use to say where they are, but I cannot find it anywhere in the first post.
    What is the date or season of the current IC day?
    What time is it in the current day? It seems like it is still before noon, but I could be wrong. There is over 80 posts in the current IC day already.


    I have added a photo for appearance and I have made the age 14 instead of 13. It was originally suppose to be 14, but for some reason I put 13.


    Last edit: All questions have been answered.

      We don't use this thread as much anymore because we tend to Skype chat a lot, but I just wanted to make sure that prospective members know we're still alive and kicking, even if the return to school has cut down on some of our players free time.


      Let's start using this thread again though! Not all of us are on Skype at the same time due to time zones and real life stuff. Does anyone have anything coming up for their character or their Pokémon? Planned battles, evolutions etc.? And would they like any help planning or setting events up?

        I completely agree. Not everyone is comfortable using Skype on their computer, Anyone using Public computers or Low end computers for example. That and the fact that the Off Topic thread went inactive for 2 and a half months gives off the illusion of Inactivity.

        In other news, I'm officially out of work next Wednesday (Seasonal Employment) So I'll actually have time to post more, I've been brainstorming as to what I'll have Ellie do.

        Btw, Isn't it Ironic that this RP has lower activity while school is in session?

        I don't have any plans for Mark. I'd kinda like him to find another character to interact with. If all else fails I may have him bump into Sammy again or somethin

          I figure Lucia and Val, if Marin wants to, could interact and head out of class.

                im sorry i really would like to join :/
                Name :Aquilo Heath

                Nickname (Optional):

                Age (10-15):13

                Sex:Male

                Dorm:Entei Dorm

                Appearance: Blond hair with larger bangs that cover half of his darker green eyes. Hes tall, tall skinny with hardly any muscle.

                Personality: Aquilo hates being around heavy crowds and is very awkward to approach or talk to. Hes more into his book then with the real world. He is intelligent but often tends to over-thinks things as that's how he's in Entei cabin. He isn't jealous and would rather prove things with raw data than fight it out. He tends to explore in places at the wrong time and gets into bad situations. Trouble making aside, Aquilo isn't hard on himself for losing he just has to figure out what works better. He knows his trusty snorunt did his job and the only thing lacking is himself so he never blames snorunt. He doesn't know what pokemon he would want because most stray away from him as they think he is rather creepy. He takes care of injured pokemon as his priority before doing anything. He will jump off a cliff if it meant a pokemon wouldn't get hurt. Training is hard as he thinks its a bit harsh to battle pokemon out of the wild but tends to suck it up to get the levels and later heals the fainted wild pokemon. Even if he does loath his parents he would love to become a breeder just to flip them the delibird. He likes traveling to see move tutors because he is in contact and is very good friends with most. It is very hard to gain Aquilo's trust as he isn't very open. You might consider yourself his "friend" but true friendship is hard as he thinks people will break it. If you have Aquilo trust know that your bond will hardly ever brake and he will be there for you unless it defies his way of life.

                History: Aquilo was born in Snowpoint city. His parents are top breeders. They never let Aquilo help in any shape or form due to the fact he might mess it up. They usually yell at him for no reason entirely so he keeps his mouth shut. They move a lot to look for rare move tutors to make their pokemon high value. Due to the this fact he hardly carries any belongings except his book with thousands of pages of information on pokemon. While reading he usually remembers his childhood. For him it was late night exploring to see all the pokemon since he couldn't make any real friend before moving. Before coming he begged his parents and told them that they would not longer need to watch him. They gave him an egg, which hatched into snorunt, and whished him out the door to train and to only pester him when it was time for him to go.

                Pokémon
                Species:Snorunt
                Nickname(Optional): (waiting for evolution)
                Personality :He hates people that are snoody or cocky and will usually pop out of the pokeball to give them a good headbutt. Loves reading with his trainer and stealing small poffins to eat later.
                Lvl:10
                Moves:
                Hex
                Spikes
                Ice Beam
                Headbutt

                No Opening Post :/ sorry didnt really know what i wanted to put here

                @cjpb: No need to apologize to us. The opening post was optional, but you still need to fill out your personality and history. Your personality section is about half as long as it needs to be, and without an opening post your history must be at least 350 words.

                My advice for your personality is to describe how your character would react to common situations in the Pokemon world. How do they handle winning or losing a battle? How do they treat pokemon? How do they train pokemon?

                My advice for your history is to use it to answer WHY your character has their personality. Most things happen for a reason, so you can quickly establish a chunk of your history if not all of it by describing the events that shaped your character into who they are today.

                    @Mcarthur: Sorry about the wait~ I'm surprised nobody mentioned your post. Of course we are! Feel free to leave your SU.

                    Speaking of SUs--Here's a copy paste of DaughterofDin's for my sake.

                    Dorm: Raikou

                    Appearance: Green eyes, curly brown hair, red lips, and always wears a tank top and shorts

                    Personality: She is very outgoing, and blunt. She has very varied interests, but lacks any direction. She loves to groom, train, study, and collect pokemon, and thus has some of the best quality pokemon ripe for battling but has awful strategy, and experience.
                    History: She never knew her mom, but her dad was amazing and she never cared. He was the one who gave her flabebe, her first pokemon. She never had friends, and instead elected to journey on her own adventures, or take care of her father.

                    Pokémon:
                    Species: Floette (a spotted red a white flower)
                    Personality: Loves to battle, but is always terrified. She is better at helping Summer out, but wants to be a great battler one day
                    Lvl: 13
                    Moves: moonblast, psychic, aromatherapy, calm mind, substitute, and protect.

                    Species: Ninetails
                    Personality: Loves battling and a fierce competitor, but ashamed of her trainer's lack of skill. Never listens to Summer in a battle but has pity for her while not in a battle.
                    Lvl: 30
                    Moves: Will o wisp, solar beam, sunny day, fire blast, flamethrower and roar
                    @DaughterOfDin: What I'd like for you to do is expand on your SU a bit. Right now it's very bare bones and since it is lacking an opening post it needs to be up to snuff. o3o

                    Ideas for your appearance field: Why are her lips red? That's usually a makeup thing, and makeup says things about your character--Which is good! How long is her hair? What is the color scheme of her shorts and tank top? Does she have a particular ethnicity? Are her shoes at all interesting? How a person chooses to take care of themselves is often reflected in their appearance.

                    What you have so far in her personality field is fine, but I'd like to see more. How does she treat her pokemon? Does she handle criticism well? What does she look for in a friend? What makes her angry? What makes her sad? Are there any other odd quirks she might have?

                    The history field is also okay, but once again I want to see more. What happened to Summer's mother? Give a few examples of how her father was 'amazing'. Why did he give her her Flabebe? Why didn't she have friends? What sort of adventures does she enjoy? Why does her father need to be taken care of? Is he especially old, sick, or does she just worry about him a lot for some other reason?

                      Putting this up here for place holder.

                      Name: Harawan Pommel

                      Nickname: Haru

                      Age: 36

                      Sex: Male

                      Job: Haru teaches Pokemon Geography. It covers a lot of topics including, but not limited to, study of the regional geography, land and sea formations, GPS use, etc.

                      Appearance:

                      Personality: If anybody could describe Haru, they would describe him with one word: risk-taker. Haru never fails to jump at any opportunity that is sent along his way. Sometimes, this personality of his is his downfall as he sometimes fails to weigh the pros and cons of any decision. He "rides the wave" as he call it and adapts his goals with every opportunity that comes to his way.

                      His attitude towards dealing with other people depends on who he is talking to. He is respectful to elders, especially those who are really older than him and "had experience he could only dream of having." He acts as a mentor to the younger ones, especially those who are aspiring to be Pokemon trainers and travel the land. However, the only thing that seems to be out of place with Haru is that he loves the women too much. He always has the constant need to impress the women. This drive of him resulted to him being single since he could never stay put with one woman. It never worried him though.

                      History: Harawan Pommel grew up in Pastoria City, Sinnoh. He lived there with his mom and an older brother. His older brother left home early as he was really bent upon becoming a Pokemon Champion. He was the one who gave Haru his first Pokemon, a Beldum. So, together with his Pokemon, he left on a journey despite the protests from his parent. His mother had a very low view for Pokemon trainers as their father left when Haru was still young to proceed on his own journey. He never had been since and the hate Haru's mother has not diminished. However, Haru also harbors a secret want to be a Pokemon Trainer; even more, he wanted to become one of the regional gym leaders, in charge of running his own gym and giving out badges to young people. At fifteen, Haru also ran away, breaking his mother's heart.

                      He started by challenging the nearest gym which is not Pastoria City. He went to Hearthome with his Beldum by his side and together they started to challenge the gym circuit. However, because of his personality, his challenge is delayed by each unique opportunity he come across. He tried being a breeder during his stay in Solaceon Town. He learned basic electronic engineering under the tutelage of Volkner, he explored the ruins of Snowpoint. He even spent some months in the mine under Byron's command. It took Haru a few years, almost a decade really, to finish the gym circuit and collect all badges. It took him another ten years before he decided to take on the league, as he was off traipsing in other regions. During this time, he tried to learn everything he can regarding the geography of each region as each adventure of his is merely a representation of the location he was during that moment. By that time he challenged the Sinnoh League, he was already a really an accomplished trainer and managed to sweep through the league easily. After his exceptional performance, Cynthia, the current Sinnoh Pokemon Champion, offered him the spot of Pokemon Champion, the strongest trainer in the whole region that have competed in the League.

                      He declined however as his adventures made the thought of staying in one place battling the same people was too boring for him. His dreams had changed since he started his journey.

                      However, his talent was very good to waste to have Haru rambling around the countryside, doing whatever he thinks of doing so the League decided to send him to the Academy. Haru thought it was boring, being stuck in a classroom all day long with little kids at your command. However, once the geography around the island was explained to him, he agreed to teach, as long as he could freely explore all the areas in the vicinity. That as how Haru, at thirty-six years old, became a professor in the Pokemon Trainer Academy.

                      Pokémon:

                      Species:
                      Nickname: Metu
                      Personality: Metu is not unlike other Metagross. It is cold and calculating. It rarely shows emotions and obeys every word and order Haru gave it. It has been with Haru since day 1 and the two is close, despite Metu showing none of these emotions.
                      Lvl(Max 60): 60
                      Moveset: Hammer Arm, Meteor Mash, Agility, Psychic, Stealth Rock, Magnet Rise


                      Species:
                      Nickname: Loam
                      Personality: Despite having a decent-level, Loam is a baby at heart. He tends to cling to Haru most of the time and would be seen more out of its Pokeball than Metu. He is playful with other Pokemon but is really afraid of Ground-types, for one reason or another.
                      Lvl(Max 60): 27
                      Moveset: Surf, Waterfall, Leech Seed, Ice Punch, Fire Punch, Thunder Punch

                        @cjpb: Wow, I am sorry! I can't believe I forgot--I'm going to go ahead and skip the second opinion so that I can get you situated. The history still leaves me wanting more, but in this case I think I'll give you a pass.

                        @Kurobat: I like your app! It took me way too long to realize I was reading a teacher app as opposed to a trainer app, but after I did everythign fell into place. The one thing I do question why someone who beat the pokemon league would only be offered the choice to be a gym leader. Would he not also be ofered the position of champion? If we can resolve that one question I think I'm ready to approve you.

                              I got a bit carried away with the history, sorry. ^_^'



                              Name: Jordan Gregson

                              Nickname:

                              Age: 15

                              Sex: Female

                              Dorm: Raikou Dorm

                              Appearance (A picture can be provided instead of a description if you so wish): Jordan is of average height for her age (Roughly 5'3") and is slightly underweight thanks to a very small appetite. Jordan has a very casual look, feeling much more comfortable in baggy clothes than in anything particularly fancy or 'showy'. She is fairly tanned thanks to spending a lot of time outside making friends with wild Pokemon. She has short red/brown hair cut to just below shoulder length with quite a long messy fringe, and green eyes.
                              (Picture below. It's super sloppy and lazy, I'm really sorry! Just made it so there was an actual picture of her to go off.)



                              Personality: Generally a cheery but quiet individual, Jordan attempts to be pleasant to all she meets. She isn't afraid to let others know what she thinks of them, however, and is much more likely to burn the bridge of a human relationship than that of one she has with a Pokémon. For this she may come across as disingenuous to some. She generally prefers time alone but will not shun the company of other people if approached. Although she won't shy away from battle Jordan is generally more interested in befriending Pokémon and learning from them, rarely catching wild Pokémon through battle (unless she believes it's what they want to do). She generally takes a gentler approach to acquiring new Pokémon, befriending them over a period of time and letting them decide if they'd like to travel with her.
                              Jordan is a firm believer that all Pokemon of every type are good and finds herself drawn to those who others deem dangerous or bad, though she is grounded enough to understand the dangers of a Pokemon which might react in a hostile or defensive way to others and will try to safely leave a situation which she thinks is dangerous. She takes particular interest in ghost and psychic type Pokémon and goes to great effort to show others that these types aren't as creepy or unpleasant as many might believe. Similarly she appreciates 'bad' Pokemon such as Houndoom, Arbok, or other Pokemon commonly painted in a negative light.
                              Jordan's 'slow but steady' approach to obtaining and raising Pokemon definitely breeds a much more trusting bond overall, but often she finds herself worrying that a more gentle approach means her team lacks a certain amount of discipline and power in comparison to the teams of those around her. In spite of this she has dreams of becoming a gym leader specialising in ghost type Pokemon, hoping to show off what her approach - combined with a bit more formal training - can do.

                              History: As a child Jordan found herself moving between different cities around Kanto and Johto due to the nature of her father's work; archaeology. As a result of this she found it a lot less upsetting to not get too attached to people or places - the only consistent friend she had was an Eevee, who was given to her when her mother's Leafeon had an egg, and the two swiftly became inseparable. It didn't matter where her family travelled or who she met while they were there, the one real constant in her life was Eevee.
                              Jordan and Eevee soon found themselves exploring together the sites her father worked on, taking a keen interest in the history and culture surrounding them. His father would often marvel at the wonder of the ancient architecture and artwork, and although she could admire its beauty Jordan found herself far more interested in the mysteries surrounding these ancient places. It was whilst exploring these ruins that she also discovered something else; her affinity for ghost Pokémon and their mysterious nature.
                              Whilst excavating a cave on the outskirts of Blackthorn City, Jordan's father would frequently come home with migraines and general feelings of nausea. Jordan and Eevee both decided that they should explore this cave to get to the bottom of whatever was causing her father's symptoms. Whilst exploring they found themselves unable to shake off a distinct feeling of unease, as if they were being watched. As they travelled deeper and deeper into the cave it became apparent that it wasn't simply a feeling of being watched, the fact was that they WERE being watched, and by an ominous shadow no less. Armed with only a torch, Jordan's immediate instinct was to run away. It was only when she noticed that Eevee seemed largely uninterested that she realised there was probably little to worry about. It was at this moment that Gastly appeared before her, giggling and floating around Jordan and Eevee, trying to get them to play with him. Hours passed before the they left, new friend Gastly in tow.
                              It was a few months later when her father's work was starting to take up most of his time, and this in turn put a strain on his marriage. Jordan's mother wanted to return to her home of Lumiose City, whereas her father wanted to carry on his work in the Johto region. The two separated on largely good terms despite not being able to come to some sort of compromise, but it was decided that Jordan was better off moving to Kalos with her mother, as her father wouldn't be able to dedicate as much time to her. The bustle of a city as big as Lumiose was something Jordan never found herself getting used to, and she largely shut herself off from her family; angry at her father for - in her eyes - abandoning her in favour of his work, and angry at her mother for simply dragging her to yet another place without asking her opinion. Yet again, she found the only constant was Eevee who she found herself relying even more on as some grasp on stability. It was after one particularly bad argument with her mother that she found Eevee wasn't perhaps as constant as she originally thought, though in a way that she warmly welcomed. As Jordan poured her heart out to her Pokemon she noticed Eevee glowing, her tail thinning and splitting at the end and her legs becoming longer. A few minutes passed as Jordan looked in awe at the newly evolved Espeon sat before her, head tilted.
                              Espeon became noticeably more restless, not actively seeking fights but taking quite an interest in observing Pokemon battles. It was at this point that Jordan became more of an active battler, finding that she enjoyed the experience more than she imagined she would and starting to develop dreams of starting her own gym. Despite all this she still found herself more drawn to exploring the surrounding area of Lumiose, particularly the lost hotel. During one exploration she came across a lost Pumpkaboo, hiding behind a load of fallen rubble. Unlike her encounter with Gastly, Jordan found Pumpkaboo a lot harder to befriend though not through lack of trying. The ghost type was very timid and actively shied away from Jordan if she got too close. Not one to be deterred Jordan briefly left for home, only returning once she found herself a particularly fancy-looking pokepuff. She left it close enough that the Pumpkaboo could reach it without moving too far from the safety of its rubble fortress, but far away enough that he could see she meant no harm. It took a few visits and half a dozen pokepuffs, but eventually Pumpkaboo settled around Jordan, happily coming out to greet her rather than hiding beneath his pile of rubble.
                              News had reached Jordan of a trainer school started by the legendary Gary Oak, and without a moment's hesitation she applied, hoping this could be the chance she'd need to learn how to become a great gym leader and develop into a more advanced battler. She visited her new ghost friend and gave him the option to travel with her to this new place alongside Espeon and Gastly. Pumpkaboo seemed quite happy to come along after being promised he wouldn't have to battle if he didn't want to. Bags packed, Jordan hopes this is the chance she needs to launch herself to becoming something great.

                              Pokémon:

                              Species: Espeon - Female
                              Nickname: -
                              Personality: Like her trainer, Espeon is quiet and observant. She is often very aloof when it comes to trainers other than Jordan and will very rarely listen to them. Given time, however, Espeon shows herself to be quite a caring Pokemon who can sense even the most subtle shift in emotion. Espeon is easily the most adept of Jordan's team, unafraid to get stuck into a battle when needed (though, given the choice, she'd rather curl up and nap somewhere warm) .
                              Ability: Synchronise
                              Lvl: 17
                              Moves: Swift, Sand Attack, Confusion, Tail Whip, Tackle, Quick Attack

                              Species: Gastly - Male
                              Nickname: -
                              Personality: A mischievous spirit who never really stops playing around even in the heat of battle. The loudest member of Jordan's team both literally and in terms of the impact he makes on those around him. Sometimes his jokes can get himself and others into trouble, though the intention behind them is genuinely harmless - such as spending Jordan's practical exam phasing through walls and pulling scary faces rather than demonstrating his skill. However for all of his energy and playfulness, Gastly is quite a lonely individual, forever searching for others to play with.
                              Ability: Levitate
                              Lvl:15
                              Moves: Hypnosis, Lick, Night Shade, Spite, Mean Look, Curse


                              Species: Pumpkaboo - Male
                              Nickname: -
                              Personality: Pumpkaboo is an exceptionally nervous Pokemon, serving more as a mascot or pet than as a fighting member of Jordan's team. Extraordinarily timid but very friendly once given time, Jordan has promised Pumpkaboo a safe chance to make friends with others and show that ghost Pokemon aren't all scary or malicious spirits. As a matter of fact he often cowers behind Jordan or actively puts himself back into his Pokeball at the trace of negative emotions, apparently physically repulsed by them unlike some other ghosts.
                              Ability: Pickup
                              Lvl: 6
                              Moves: Trick-or-Treat, Confuse Ray, Astonish, Trick, Scary Face, -

                              @FeralSlaaneshi: Not a problem~ Big histories just mean you've got a great idea of what your character has been through and why they're the way they are.

                              That being said, your history looks good to me! You're accepted.

                              Took too long, so sorry. >.< was busy making rounds here in the province, being the holiday driver and all. But I think I explained why now. :)
