Hoenn:
Land and Sea

Rated: M



It's been two years. The leaders of Teams Magma and Aqua, Maxie and Archie, have parted ways. The team's admins, lost without their leaders and unsure why they were abandoned, have taken charge and have strangely decided to work together for a common goal. Their schemes have been relatively under wraps as of late, but various sightings of familiar uniformed henchmen have been reported recently. Meanwhile, the destruction of the meteor that had threatened the region has left countless meteorite crash sites across the region. Mega Key Stones were quickly mined from the sites, and special Mega Stones have been found across Hoenn, hypothesized to have been influenced by the event. This has brought about an immense number of tourists from other regions to a scale that Hoenn has never seen before. This event, along with the meteorite's odd energy changing the environment has come an influx of pokemon not normally found in the Hoenn region. Professor Birch, expert in pokemon environments, is taking the initiative to research these changes and what they will mean for the Hoenn region. but he needs the help of new and curious trainers. In exchange for a pokedex and sponsorship, Professor Birch and his research team asks for your help in documenting the various pokemon in the area. Your pokedex includes a camera and video recorder, as well as the information on foreign pokemon via the information from other professors in remote regions. Gather data and help Professor Birch in his research in how the Hoenn region will inevitably change!




Mechanics:

Spoiler:

Pokemon encounters/Item generation:
If you want an item/pokemon encounter/event, please end your post with "event?" in bold and noticable. You will either be given an item, an event or some kind, or a pokemon encounter.

Battles:
-Battles can be fully RPed or done through Pokemon Showdown.
-If done through pokemon Showdown, you must keep a record of the match via a link that must be on your post. An example can be found here
-Any move done and anything said within the battle/chat must be RPed. An example of an Rp battle can be found here. And the resulting rp summary can be found here.
-Record any and all complete battles in your battle log. Links to the individual post are preferred as well. This is used to show when your pokemon can evolve or learn new moves.
-Certain major battles, such as with gym leaders, can be counted as 2 or more battles per pokemon that participates, depending on the GM's instructions.
-I will just check individual number of battles of each pokemon, and how much they participated to determine average level. Additionally, pokemon that you have just met will not be able to evolve immediately, even if they were caught at the right level. Think of it as a need to connect first.

Gym/Event Battles:
-Special rules or limitations can be put on these kinds of battles such as the opponent having a team that is a set number of levels higher than your own.
You will be informed of the details before the challenge the battle.

New Moves: To speed things up, new moves can be learned every 5 battles that pokemon participates in, provided that your pokemon achieved the minimum level requirement. If your pokemon learns multiple attacks at the same level, they can just learn them all at once.
-for a pokemon to have counted in a battle, they have to actually battle. immediate switch ins do not count.
-Showdown battles do count as battles towards evolution and new moves. Just dont abuse it please.
-New moves should take at least 2-3 posts to learn.
-Your pokemon can keep and use any move it has learned throughout the journey without forgetting them. However Showdown battles are restricted to a choice of 4 moves. So choose wisely.

Evolution:
You may actually evolve your pokemon without speaking to a mod if:
1. You possess the appropriate stone
2. You trade it with a fellow player or mod controlled npc (with applicable item)
3. You meet the minimum friendship requirement in units of battles
4. Your pokemon just needs to evolve at a specific location

You should speak to a mod if
1. Your pokemon evolves purely on levels
2. Your pokemon evolves from learning a move and leveling

Friendship evolution: A pokemon that requires friendship to evolve can evolve after 15 (full) battles or 10 with a soothe bell, provided that they met their other normal requirements (items, time of day, ect) . Friendship berries can also shorten the time by one battle each.
Mega Evolution:
-For mega evolution to occur, the trainer must have a keystone for themselves and a mega stone for their pokemon. Additionally, the bond between the pokemon and trainer must be at its peak, meaning that max friendship is required.
-Only one mega stone may be found by each trainer, however through gifts and exchanges with other characters, multiple megastones may be obtained by a single character.

Pokemon Catches:
-Wild pokemon can have a maximum of 3 catch attempts unless otherwise noted.
-Pokemon natures and flavor text will be available after capture.
-The nature of pokemon are subject to change upon evolution. (like the anime) A timid caterpie may evolve into an adamant metapod. you have control over this.
-You may attempt a 'Friendship Catch', which is you attempt to befriend a pokemon without battling it. This gives you a 1.5x chance to catch it.
-A friendship capture can only be done on the first catch attempt and takes up one of your three attempts.

Pokemon Abilities:
-As long as they don't contradict each other, a pokemon may have both its primary and secondary ability or its DW ability. However, as with move slots, only one can be picked for Showdown battles.

Pokemon contests:
-Will be RPed as normal. RP representatives or all participating RPers will judge the contest and vote on a winner.

Does the 3-stage evolution rule only apply to the starter? By the way, I am aware there is stuff missing, I will be editing it in a near future because I am still thinking about those.

Well, I am interested. I hope you get several applicants. If you do, I'll whip up an application as well if you're willing to accept brand new folks who have never done this here before.

Is this RP still open?

Hi everyone, considering that the GM for this RP hasn't logged into the site for over a month and has not posted in this thread since August, I will be closing this thread. Sorry about that! There aren't many RPs being run right now, either, but keep checking back for new ones!
