Pokémon: Amber [OOC/Always Open!]

IC

Welcome to the world of pokémon, and the Maderia Region!

Only recently has the tropical region of Maderia joined the modern world of pokémon, having now established its very own pokémon league, complete with eight gyms and an Elite Four - a champion is yet to be chosen. Only now, however, has Professor Açai, the leading pokémon researcher in the region, decided to give hopeful pokémon trainers the push they need to start their own journeys. You are one of the many that will begin the greatest adventure of a lifetime today, but the question you should be asking yourself is:

Do you think that you can be the very best?



Rules & Guidelines

  • Although I'm open to suggestions and criticism, my word is final.
  • The usual cardinal rules of NS; don't flame, godmod, etc.
  • No one-liners!
  • Please try to maintain decent post quality and activity. If you're going to be innactive, please say so in the OOC.
  • Any IC information regarding your character should be kept in a single post so that it is easier to keep track of pokémon, moves, and items.
  • No canon characters are allowed.
  • Custom pokémon, items, moves, and abilities are allowed. Just fill out the respective app!

Co-op: Britanania

Wild Battles
If you want to have a wild encounter, say so in an IC post (Ex: He saw a rustling in the grass/A figure approached him/etc.). You can also just ask for an encounter in the OOC, but in either case, a Co-op or myself (whoever is currently online) will give you the encounter by TG. The outcome of the encounter will then be decided by TG before you make the full post about it.

Shinies will appear in this rp, but will be extremely rare and decided by myself only. You can, however, have your pokémon have distinct colors or markings within reason (A neon-pink Pikachu is not going to appear naturally).

NPC Battles
NPC battles will work in a similar way. You may ask for one in the OOC, but in most cases, an NPC trainer will appear to challenge your character. The following battle will be made as a collab (by TG or any other means), with a Co-op or myself controlling the NPC. There are, however, some NPCs that can only be controlled by me. They are:
  • Gym Leaders
  • Elite Four members
  • The Champion
  • Evil team members

PC Battles
Any battle between player characters can be handled any way you like, but is recommended that it is done through a collab with the outcome already determined. That way, everyone gets their chance to win without a battle dragging on too far.

Moves and Evolutions
Things like your pokémon learning a move and evolving are a part of what is discussed with the Co-op before a wild or NPC battle. If learning a new move or evolving occurs during a PC battle, just ask a Co-op or myself first.

Mega Evolutions
Mega Evolutions may be included, but the respective Mega Stones will be distributed by myself, and I will decide if your pokémon is allowed to Mega-Evolve.

Z-Moves
Z-Crystals may be introduced during a special event, but will be very sparse, and, like Mega Stones, distributed by myself.

You can begin in any city or town, or anywhere! You start off with 1, first-form pokémon with up to 4 moves; the learnable max is 6.

You are more than welcome to play as a member of Team Shade, or even as a pokémon! If you are going to play as a pokémon, however, you will have to fill out the bio portion of the pokémon app.

Solid Lines = League-sponsored routes. These routes are well-maintained, safe, and are meant to give trainers an easy route to their next destination. That doesn't mean you have to follow them!

Dotted Lines = Unsponsored routes. These routes usually connect to locations that are not involved in the Maderia League, but can make for great shortcuts! Have caution, as these roads are in much poorer condition and more unsafe.



The Maderia Region is a mostly tropical region, with only the southernmost city of Patagol ever recieving snow in the winter months. It isn't rare, however, for there to be especially cold winters were one might see snow as far north as Garoma City. The region can be divided into three climate zones: the hot and humid Selverde Rainforest in the north, the arid Maderia Highlands at the region's center, and the more temperate coast and south. It is the cities that are along the coast that are the most populous and popular among tourists, but the more inland cities have seen a growth in population in recent years.

Novela Town is a small, quiet village deep in the Selverde Rainforest. It's only connection to civilization is a winding path through the jungle that leads to Selverde City.

Selverde City is a city of stark contrast. It is a metropolis of polished skyscrapers surrounded by untarnished jungle. Many pokémon researchers have established there base of operations here, but very few have dared to go farther into the untamed rainforest, which is the home to many undiscovered pokémon. The only person who was crazy enough to go deeper into the Selverde Rainforest is Professor Guarana, the former leading professor and Professor Açai's mentor. He has a small laboratory in the far north of the region. Selverde City is the home to Liana, an amateur trainer who is just taking the mantle as gym leader. A clean, straightforward highway leads out of the rainforest and connects Selverde to the center of the Maderia region: Altorre City. A paved road branches off of the route which leads to Hevea farm, a pokémon ranch and rubber tree plantation.

Altorre City used to be just another patch of dry soil in the vast Maderian Highlands, but the creation of the Maderia League called for a central hub that would give trainers and other pokémon enthusiasts easy access to the rest of the region. Using similar cities from around the globe – like Castelia City and Lumiose City – as a template, Altorre is a metropolis that is unmatched in all of the region. Glimmering skycrapers extend their reach to the skies above. The man that was put in charge of the city's gym is Ferris, one of the men who built this city from the ground up.

Jemoía Town is a ghost town. It used to boom when diamonds were first discovered in the mines, but those diamonds have long since run short, and so has the town's residents. One of the few people still living in this deserted town is the former gym leader, Carbon.

Meiola Town was a once insignificant little village in the middle of nowhere. It gained attention during the creation of the Maderia League, when it became a midpoint between Altorre and the coast. To the east, two routes branch off that lead to two different cities on the coast. The nearby waterfalls are a popular ecotourism attraction.

Nataluz City is renowned as being a center for the arts and music, and is the home to the best theaters in all of Maderia. It is also the home of the Battle Academy, where trainers can learn the finer aspects of pokémon battling and strategy. The current gym leader is Sofia, a cunning strategist who plans her battles to each individual movement. The former gym leader, Nevasca, is now a member of the Maderia Elite Four.

Fortalore City is the fierce rival to Nataluz city. While Nataluzan trainers prioritize strategy, Fortalorean trainers value brute strength over everything else. This rivalry can be seen even between the gym leaders. Fortalore is home to the biggest open market in the region as well as the Battle Arena, where trainers can test the might of their teams. The ultimate test of strength in the city is none other than the gym leader, Cabral, a tough and ruthless general.

Camadua City is one of the largest cities in the Maderia Region, but it did not receive its own gym with the creation of the League. Instead, the city's former gym leader, Adriana, became a member of the Elite Four. This city is divided in half by a steep cliff, with an elevator connecting the two halves. Camadua's beaches are among the most popular in the region, and a path along the beach that connects the city to Nataluz is a popular location among bikers.

Velponte City is made up of many islands of varying sizes, all connected by a series of bridges. One long bridge is currently being built to connect this city to Festaía City. Taking a boat through the many waterways that snake through the city is a common mode of transportation. Velponte is also Maderia's most major port. The current gym leader is Ferdinand, a sailor and captain of his own vessel, the Tirtouga. The former gym leader, Gaian, is now a member of the Elite Four.

Fantano Town, for most people, is just a creepy little village that brave trainers have to pass through instead of taking Route 3. The town is located in the middle of a swamp of the same name, which many believe is the home of restless spirits that haunt unwary travelers at night. Apparently, this insignificant town once had its own gym leader.

Garoma City is the second biggest city in the region, second only to Altorre. It is also the industrial center of the region, home to the centeal pokéball and potion factories. The city has seen some better days, though. Once known for the light rain that commonly filled the city's skies, the sky is now filled with a constant cloud of smog. This sudden change occured when the title of gym leader was passed from Caruncho, who is now a member of the Elite Four, to Cyan, a scientist and researcher who is always trying to create new and more effective medicines for pokémon.

Festaía City is, without a doubt, the most popular city in the entire region. Its pearly-white beaches are among the most popular in the world! Not just that, it is well known for its yearly festival that celebrates the bond between human and pokémon. Festaía was actually originally planned to be the home of the Maderia League headquarters before Altorre was chosen, but the construction a stadium is currently underway to hold a pokémon world tournament. The current gym leader is Anjolina, a world-renowned model and star of the pokémon festival. The whereabouts of the former gym leader, Aurora, are mostly unknown.

Favela Town is a gloomy, melancholy place, despite being separated from Festaía only by the small Mount Doçe. This town used to have a gym leader of its own, but no one really knows much of him. This leader, and his hometown, have mostly faded into obscurity.

Patagol City will the last destination for many taking on the Maderia League. The only place to go from here is the Gargrande Falls and the Maderia League that lies beyond. This city is known for its night life, having many restaurants, clubs, and theaters. The current gym leader is Marina, the avant-garde leader of her band Blast-Burned.

What Pokemon are we allowed to start with? I'm not going to mess with anything after Gen 4, so I'm looking more at the older ones.

It has to be at its first stage, and it can't be legendary. Besides that, it can be anything. Professor Açai will also be handing out pokemon to trainers who dont have any (ill be adding more info on that later)

But seriously, aside from the population and GDP, just assume that my NS stats are roughly accurate.

I'm going to use the character I had in the Corbi RP. For now I'll just paste the original app here. When I have time I'll add in some info on how he ended up leaving Corbi for Maderia.

Duncan
The Shiny Zorua

I couldn't find a small enough version of the picture I wanted, here's a link: http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2012/ ... 4nqp97.png
When he morphs into a human, he looks like a thin, 5 foot tall teenager with brown hair. When in human form, he retains his fangs and red eyes, and hides his eyes with sunglasses.
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Inventory:: A rusty bicycle, an older model pokedex, blue-tinted aviator sunglasses, and a backpack with books, a bible, an everstone, snacks, and a Walkman with cassettes.

Personality: Friendly and cheerful most of the time, but a bit awkward sometimes around other pokemon and people. Unlike most Zorua, he's not very mischievous, but he will occasionally play a trick or two. He's a bit too curious for his own good sometimes, and this has led to him almost being caught on a few occasions.
Brief Bio: Duncan (or just "Zorua") used to live in an abandoned manor in the Anglion region. Over the years, he used the old books, records, and movies in the house them to teach himself to speak and read. A long time ago he left the manor to see the world. He usually takes the form of a human his age, and has thus far been able to live a convincing life as a human. Unfortunately, some government agencies seem to have caught on to his charade, and he has to be constantly on the move to avoid being captured and studied.
About a year ago he made his way to the Corbi region, and using fake identification was able to get a job and an apartment near the port where the ship is to come in. After the authorities discovered he was only 15 (at least that's all they discovered) he lost the job and apartment and went on the run to avoid getting put in an orphanage or revealed to be a pokemon. Ironically, he ended up living for some time with two Pokémon hunters before deciding to leave the region for Maderia, where he hoped to live in peace without the danger of being caught.
However, the recent "Pokémon craze" and the establishment of a league have made things more dangerous for him again. He currently lives in swampy Fantano Town in a rented apartment, but doesn't have much money left to pay for it. He wants to reveal to the world that he's really a Pokémon, but is afraid he'd be treated like an animal. He has decided to find a group of trainers to travel with in the league, and to eventually tell them the truth about what he is.
Likes: Books, movies, music, adventure, hot chocolate, nice people/pokemon.
Dislikes: Violence, death, mean people/pokemon. Does not want to evolve.

Trainer: N/A
Pokéball Type: N/A
Level: 15
Ability: Illusion
Attacks: Feint Attack, Taunt, Fury Swipes, Scary Face

I'll wait for the info on how he ended up in Maderia before accepting.

Also, info on all of the cities and towns is up! Feel free to take a read if you want to know more about the region!

The map is titled "The Mederia Region."

Also, is there a starting level cap? I think that would be reasonable if we're all going on the same journey together.

Also, is there a starting level cap? I think that would be reasonable if we're all going on the same journey together.

Oh.

Expect a new map pretty soon

This is accepted, but can you make an app for Meteor? Put in the same post as your trainer app so we can have the info in one place.

Was planning on making an Alola-like region when I saw this.

Will post an application soon.

(Here's some advice though, doing collab posts with users for gym leaders WILL slow the roleplay down because of time zones, work, school, etc so I suggest a system similar to Anglion where OP/Co-OP decides outcome.)

I was thinking of doing that, but I wanted to rp the gym leaders during the battle to show their personality more. Although, if I ever get busy, I'll go with Anglion's system.

Here are my apps, just to give you all an idea of how I want this sort of post formatted.

Corvo Duraço

Gender: Male
Appearance:
Age: 15
Bio: Corvo was destined to become a powerful trainer since the day he was born. Both his father and grandfather before him were gym leaders. Specifically, his father is Ferris, the one chosen to become the Altorre City gym leader, and everyone expects Corvo to take up his father's mantle in the future. He is the heir apparent to a gym that isn't even fully built yet! Ferris taught Corvo everything he knew about pokémon battling, and when his Aggron laid an egg, he gave that egg to his son, making Aron Corvo's very first pokémon. He's been training hard to become the strongest trainer in the region ever since.
Personality: Corvo isn't the most generous of individuals. His wealthy upbringing and status as a gym leader's son made a bit of a superiority complex within him. By default, he sees himself as better than everyone else, but if you can "prove" yourself to him as a strong trainer, he might actually respect you. Just a little. Because he is always being compared to his father, Corvo wishes to one day surpass him, then go even higher; he has his sights set on the Maderia League.
Items: Five pokéballs, five potions, and $1,000.

--Optional--
Likes: Victory, training, and "strong" pokémon.
Dislikes: Failure, "weak" pokémon and trainers, and being looked down upon.
Battle Theme: https://youtu.be/SW7QU72Eo2s

#PAV (do not remove)


Aron

Image

Species: Aron
Gender: Male
Age: 5
Item: Eviolite
Pokéball Type: Pokéball
Personality: For the sake of his trainer, Aron acts stoic, serious, and battle-hardened. In reality, he's a soft and playful pokémon, but don't think that he isn't a tough battler. Aron has all of his trust in Corvo.

Ability: Rock Head
Moves:
  • Protect
  • Harden
  • Rock Tomb
  • Metal Claw
  • Mud Slap
  • Headbut
Trainer: Corvo

--Optional--
Biography: There isn't much to know about Aron. His mother is Ferris' Aggron, and was hatched by Corvo, who has been his trainer ever since.
Likes: Rocks (specifically, eating them. He finds metals and gemstones especially delicious), and winning.
Dislikes: Being in water, and disappointing his trainer.
Other: This Aron has a slightly darker color than normal Aron, like a dark nickel coating.

#PAV (Do not remove)


Staravia

Image

Species: Staravia
Gender: Female
Age: 5
Item: None
Pokéball Type: Pokéball
Personality: Starly is highly energetic and feisty, always moving and looking for something else to occupate herself with, be it a tree branch, or a berry bush, or Corvo's hair. She is also very quick to anger, which she usually expresses by pecking whatever is angering her.

Ability: Intimidate
Moves:
  • Tackle
  • Growl
  • Quick Attack
  • Wing Attack
  • Double Team
Trainer: Corvo

--Optional--
Biography: Just an average Starly that happened to have been perched on branch that Corvo had passed under on his way to Selverde Rainforest. Starly attacked him on sight, the battle that ensued resulted in her joining his team.
Likes: Berries (especially sour ones), battling, pecking at her problems, and using Corvo's hair as a nest.
Dislikes: Being bored and being bothered, and not having something to perch on at all times.
Other: None

#PAV (Do not remove)


Larvesta

Image

Species: Larvesta
Gender: Female
Age: 7
Item: Cheri Berry
Pokéball Type: Pokéball
Personality: Larvesta is almost as apathetic and brooding as the trainer who raises her. She's loyal to her trainer, though... most of the time.

Ability: Flame Body
Moves:
  • Ember
  • String Shot
  • Absorb
Trainer: Corvo

--Optional--
Biography: It was by complete circumstance that Corvo was able to come across this Larvesta while it was sleeping. She put up quite the fight, though, before finally joining his team.
Likes: Spicy foods; sleeping; and cool, dark places.
Dislikes: Sour foods, being woken up, and bright lights.
Other: None

#PAV (Do not remove)


  • 3 Pokéballs
  • 9 Potions
  • 3 Oran Berries
  • 2 Chesto Berries
  • 1 Cheri Berry
  • 5,500 pokédollars
  • TM 86 - Grass Knot

Gym Badges:

Canopy Badge

Do you mind if I bring a Nincada which will later evolve into Shednja/Ninjask, two of the most annoying pokemon particularly the former?
