Old Pokemon RP (OOC)

82 posts in this topic

Posted

*Insert your favourite Pokemon theme here*

This is the project Dylan and I have been working on. We hope it was worth the wait.

 

Yep, a Pokemon RP. Though, given our lack of Poke-knowledge, we decided we couldn’t set it in an existing Region, so we created our own.

 

Welcome to Ganlo!

 

-----------

 

An island Region located just north of Kalos, Ganlo used to be a major power in the world. But for over half a century now it influence has dropped to almost being a forgotten relic. The mind-set of the nation sort of reflects this, as the Region does focus a lot on its history, such as its towns being named after ancient weapons, and its gyms often located inside historical structures.

 

According to legends, Ganlo was once ruled by a race of Dragon Pokemon who enslaved the humans and weaker pokemon before they were overthrown, and likely driven to extinction. After this, the people of Ganlo began spreading out and forming an Empire.

 

There are two unique aspect about the Pokemon in Ganlo. The first being there are no fixed starters for the Region. Instead, when potential Trainers register, they may select a starter from another region and have it shipped in, or they may take one of their own Pokémon, if they have any.

 

Second, there are no known unique Pokemon species in Ganlo. Any that were unique have either been spread to other regions long ago and found there as well, or are so rare to be close to extinction and never seen. Conversely, there are hardly any (currently known) Pokemon Species not found in Ganlo.

 

The population of Ganlo are also very keen on Contests. One vs one contests are almost as common as battles (with another trainer asked to judge). And every town and city has contests every Saturday, though only the contests in the cities can hand out official Award Ribbons.

 

Ganlo is split into four sub-regions. North, South, Central, and Island. Transport is manly handled by the extensive train service. Every town and city has a train station and routes to all nearby settlements.

Map Key

 

 

North Region

 

1. Scabbard Town

The largest northern settlement, Scabbard Town is also the sight of the Pokemon Research Labs, where most Trainers begin their journey. In fact, Scabbard Town is so large, that the only thing preventing it for being granted City status is a lack of a Gym, and there have been talks for years about setting up an Ice Gym.

 

2. Smuggler’s Cave

The cave was once teeming with Fossils, but since become a draw for tourists such fossils are now hard to find even in the deepest levels. But that never stops people from trying. The cave retains its name from when smugglers would hide their goods in olden times.

(Note, all Fossils can be found in this cave, but all count as Rare)

Pokemon: Zubat, Dunsparce

 

3. Stockade Forest

A short forest walk between Scabbard Town and Lapras lake. The forest is teaming with life, making it a popular location for those who like Bug Pokemon, and avoided by others!

Pokemon: Caterpie, Weedle, Ledyba, Spinarak, Pineco ®, Teddiursa, Wurmple

 

4. Dirk Town

A small town near the coast which makes most of its business from starting trainers passing through.

 

5. Claymore city (Electric Gym)

This city has a history of producing renowned explores and inventors. In fact, the Gym honours both of those traits, being both an electric gym and located inside a sailing ship which made a historic journey to the North Pole.

 

6. Lapras Lake / Battle Castle

This massive lake is home to several pods of Lapras’, though despite their number they are actually protected. Trainers may take a Lapras only if they meet certain criteria. The Castle on the shores of the lake is a popular location for trainers to meet and battle each other formally.

Pokemon: Seel, Lapras (S), Spheal, Ducklett

 

7. Buckler and Flintlock City (Steel Gym)

These two cities, separated by a wide river, used to be practically at war with each other. In an attempt to bring the cities together, a massive bridge was built between the two, and a Gym built on the bridge itself. The two cities aren’t exactly friendly now, but at least they have a set location to fight.

 

South Region

 

8. Morning Star Town

A popular party resort, Morning Star Town has a replica of Prism Tower in Lumiose City. Most of the Town is theme parks, party halls, or hotels.

 

9. Cannon City (Rock Gym)

A very history city, Cannon City was built around an ancient fort, slowly expanding over the centuries. The fort itself is now the city Gym. A central city in Ganlo, it has routes leading across the land.

 

10. Lance Town

A sea port and fishing town, Lance town also has a large Maritime museum.

 

11. Longbow City (Ghost Gym) (Has park)

The capitol of Ganlo, a massive metropolis, and location of the Royal Palace. The city also has several sizable parks which have their own Pokémon populations. The Gym is located in an ancient prison tower, and is rumoured to be haunted, not just because of the Pokémon types used there.

Pokemon: Snubbull, Metang, Pidove

 

12. Glaive Town

A town on the border of the South and Central Region, Glavie is pretty much the ‘tour guide town’, and has the largest train station in Ganlo.

 

13. Rapier Town

The southernmost settlement, Rapier Town is where supplies of Pokeballs are shipped from the nearby Kalos region. Like Scabbard Town, Rapier is only a Gym short of being a city. But instead, it has the largest Poke-superstore in the region, as well as an international tournament arena. The Superstore often holds competition of different types, with Porygons offered as prizes.

 

Central Region

 

14. Halberd City (Psychic Gym)

An open and picturesque beach city. The gym is constructed on what the psychics claim is a Rift in space and time, but most others dismiss that as nonsense.

 

15. Crystal Caves

These beautiful caves sparkle with gems lining the walls. But due to the large number of hostile Pokemon inside, very little has been plundered.

Pokemon: Onix, Sableye ®, Lunatone, Solrock, Garbite, Woobat, Ferroseed

 

16. Lava Caverns

Most think the volcano is dead, but a look in these caves shows it is at best slumbering. Intensely warm, the maze like caverns are populated by fire types.

Pokemon: Magmar ®, Slugma, Torkoal, Hippowdon, Pansear, Larvesta

 

17. Galleon Town

Galleon Town used to be a sea port, now it is just a tourist town, catering for those who wish to climb the mountains or explore the caves.

 

18. Musket City (Water Gym)

A city full of museums and other historical items. The gym is actually a little out to sea, in an old sea fort, and doubles as an aquarium.

 

19. Horizon Island

Despite its picturesque appearance from a distance, very few visit this isle, due to the frequent rain showers that can occur here.

 

Island Region

 

20. Broadsword City (Grass Gym)

A city with two opposing philosophies. Half the inhabitants want the already extensive parklands extended. The other half are pushing for a more and more modern city. The gym sits in the middle of this, a massive greenhouse complex, trying to find a balance between these two ideals.

 

21. Palisade Forest

The advice for making your way from Broadsword City to Pike Town is say on the Route. And with good reason. Many who stray off the Route into the depth of Palisade Forest are never seen again. And those who are tend to be at best dazed and unsure what happened, or refuse to talk about it.

Pokemon: Hypno, Dusclops, Drifblim, Litwick, Phantump, Kecleon ®, Pawniard, Nuzleaf, Klefki

 

22. Pokemon Sanctuary

What was once thought to be a rumour, a vast valley full of peaceful Pokémon, has recently been proven true. There is some controversy with disturbing the Pokemon here however.

Pokemon: Ditto, Snorlax (S), Tropius, Skuntank, Audino ®, Cottonee, Sawsbuck, Pangoro, Swirlix, Smergale, Hawlucha

 

23. Pike Town

Sitting between Palisade Forest and the similarly creepy Route A21, Pike Town has a repluation of being unlicuky. So much so that the inhabitents have started blaming some of the nearby Pokemon for their bad luck.

 

24. Arbalest Town

If Pike Town is unlucky, Arbalest Town takes that reputation and turns it into a tourist trap. With the standing stones nearby, Arbalest embraces its fey like history and folk tales.

 

25. Deep Caves

These caves lead deep into the mountains into the centre of the island. There are many legends surround the caves and mountains, but no evidence has been found for them.

Pokemon: Marowak, Misdreavus, Wobbuffet, Exploud, Boldore, Klang, Druddigon ®, Deino, Mawile, Noibat, Carbink

 

26. Ballista City (Fairy Gym)

During the day this looks like any other city, but during the night it sparkles in the moonlight. The gym here is outdoors, and matches only take place at night inside a stone circle.

 

27. Cavalon Ruins

The sight of the final battle during the Dragon Wars, the ruins have been mostly untouched since that time. Despite many attempts to explore, few stay on the island more than a day, if they ever return.

Pokemon: Haunter, CoFlagrigus, Doublade, Unown ®, Claydol, Bronzong, Sigilyph

 

28. Pokemon League

This tower atop the highest mountain in Ganlo houses the Pokemon League, where the Championship Tournament is held every four years.

Pokemon: Sneasel, Snover, Stantler, Buneary, Lillipup, Skiddo, Castform ®

Popular with beginner climbers, this path makes its way along several cliffs, and offers some fantastic views.

Pokemon: Ponyta, Kangaskhan ®, Tauros, Girafarig, Seviper, Zangoose, Watchog, Minccino, Bouffalant

 

Route A13

As this is the route most tourists see when they arrive in Ganlo, it takes them past both the coast and forests to look as beautiful as possible. It also passes close to the main Hydro-electric planet, so many Electric Type make their home on this Route.

South Region Sea Pokemon: Tentacool, Horsea, Octillery, Mantine, Wailmer ®

This sandy plain, accessed from the cave, is sheltered from the elements, and with the lava nearby heating the water into hot springs, the route is surprisingly warm for Ganlo.

A steep but well pathed mountain route, trainers of Fighting type often make use of it.

Rules

 

As well as the usual RP rules, there are a few more given the setting. I have tried to keep then to a minimum as much as possible.

 

First, this resource will be INVALUABLE! http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Main_Page

 

Levelling

 

 

Considering that pokemon experience levels is so ingrained into pokemon it’s even in the anime, there needs to be some way to manage this. However, I didn’t want a system with a lot of bookkeeping, so hopefully this system is simple enough.

 

Starter Pokemon begin at Level 1. Wild Pokemon have a level which is double the route number they are found on (I.e. A pokemon on route A01 will have a level of 2. One on route A11 will have a level of 22. One on route 22 will have a level of 44) Wild pokemon in a location off a Route (such as a cave) will have a level equal to those on the lowest adjacent route. A Legendary or Mythical Pokemon will have a level of 50 or 70, depends on how far along the story is.

 

Whenever a player wins a Battle or a One Vs One Contest against another player, their pokemon involved in the battle/contest go up a level. (Note, while the Battle/Contest has to be against another player, it does not need to be a Player Character, it can be an NPC). If a Pokemon comes in the top three for a large Contest, it also increases one level.

 

The maximum level a pokemon can reach is limited by the badges/ribbons the player has.

 

None: Max level 10

 

1 Gym Badge: Max 20

2 Gym Badges: Max 30

3 Gym Badges: Max 40

4 Gym Badges: Max 50

5 Gym Badges: Max 60

6 Gym Badges: Max 70

7 Gym Badges: Max 80

8 Gym Badges: Max 90

 

1 Contest Ribbon: Max 25

2 Contest Ribbons: Max 40

3 Contest Ribbons: Max 55

4 Contest Ribbons: Max 70

5 Contest Ribbons: Max 85

 

After taking part in the Pokemon Leage Battle/Contest: Max 100

 

If you gain a pokemon of a higher level than your badges/ribbons allow, it will probably not obey you commands, and try to escape.

 

For a rough gauge of how difficult a fight will be:

 

Look at the level of the two pokemon involved. For a baby pokemon (one at its lowest evolution stage) take away 10 from its level. For a pokemon in its final evolution stage, add ten. If a pokemon is a Legendary or Mythical, add 20. These addition can take the level number above both the Max level limit and/or 100. Then compare the difference between the two.

 

0 to 9: No significant difference.

10 to 19: The higher level has the edge in the fight.

20 to 29: There is a clear favourite

30 to 39: The weaker pokemon will need a good strategy or type advantage to win.

40 to 49: The weaker pokemon will need a good strategy AND type advantage to win.

50+: Walkover.

 

If a pokemon uses Mega-evolution (or similar ability) in a fight, its level raises by 10.

 

In gym battles the Gym leader always has a level advantage of thirty, but this can be reduced by a Legendary/Mythical pokemon or Mega-Evolution.

 

 

 

Evolution

 

 

Once a pokemon meets all the requirements to evolve, it can. Pokemon that evolve when exposed to items or when traded evolved as soon as the requirement are met. Other pokemon need not evolve right away, or at all. As long as the pokemon meets the requirements, to can evolve when you want it, even in the middle of a battle or contest. Provided of course, it still has the requirements at that point, such as holding a required item or knowing a certain move.

 

 

 

Moves, TM’s and HM’s

 

 

Pokemon know a maximum of four moves as normal, and learn moves as they level up. TM’s (Training Machines) can be used to teach a pokemon a move, and can be used multiple times.

 

In the games a pokemon that knows a HM move can use it in the overworld to navigate around. But this does lead to pokemon being forced to learn often ineffectual move. So, any pokemon that CAN learn an HM move can uses its overworld effect (such as using surf to navigate water) even if they haven’t learned the move as one of their four. Of course, then cannot use it in combat. The exception being Fly, which you need six Gym Badges, or four Contest Ribbons before you can use.

 

 

 

Legendries and Mega-Evolution

 

 

Each player may choose ONE Legendary or Mythical pokemon. They can either choose an existing one, or use the Legendary Profile below to create their own. Note, you cannot choose the following Legendries: Ho-oh, Arceus, Palkia, Dialga, Girantina, Jirachi, Victini, Celebi, Hoopa and Volcanion. Legendries will not appear until one of your PC’s has at least Six Gym badges OR Four Contest Ribbons.

 

While each player can only have one Legendary, each Player Character may have One Mega-Evolution. Also, you are not limited to the list of current Mega-Evolutions. The character requires the appropriate Mega-Evolution stone and Ring/bracelet/anklet/necklace/etc before they can use it, and cannot do so until they have at least Four Gym badges OR three Contest Ribbons.

 

 

 

Capturing

 

 

Any Pokemon that can be encountered can be captured, usually within a single post should you wish. Most Pokemon can easily be found on routes, however, some are marked as Rare ®. These Pokemon are harder to find and capture, and require a storyline to do so. Some Pokemon are marked as Special (s). Which means they can only be caught as part of plot events.

 

 

 

Trading

 

 

You may trade Pokemon for another Pokemon of an equal or LOWER level with an NPC, or within ten levels of each other with a PC. A rare Pokemon can only be traded for another rare Pokemon. Starter Pokemon count as rare, as do the 13 Pokémon not found in Ganlo (Furfrou, Trubbish, Garbodor, Smoochum, Jynx, Spritzee, Aromatisse, Lickitung, Lickilicky, Nosepass, Probopass, Mime Jr, Mr mime). Legendary or Mythical Pokemon can only be traded for another Legendary or Mythical Pokemon.

 

 

 

PC’s and NPC’s

 

 

All Player Characters will be Trainers starting out on their journey. You can do Gym Battles, Contests, both or neither. Whatever you wish. However, if you want to control NPC’s, such as Gym Leaders, Contest Champions, or Villains, you may. Most NPC’s will only appear in game when PC’s are around (until which point as the PC’s become equal or more powerful than them, at which point the may become PC’s themselves). The exception is villains, who can obviously act on their own doing villainous things.

The Legendary Dragons

 

In the ancient History of Ganlo’s Dragon Wars, three powerful dragons are named as siding with humanity, and eventually convincing others to do so; Galeas, Lamhcalad and Gauvain. Some soruces say they were dragons who felt pity on the enslaved humans. Others that they were humans who found a way to become dragons themselves. Their fate is equally conflicted. Most legends say they were slain when the humans turned on them after the war, but some accounts talk of them fleeing Ganlo, and others hiding somewhere within its lands.

(These Legendries can be claimed like any other, but WILL tie you into the metaplot of the RP, so can’t be used freely until a certain point in the story)

 

Name: Galeas (Mascot of Drake)

(Claimed by Skye)

Type: Dragon / Water

Description: A long, lithe light blue dragon. A long fin runs from the top of his head to almost the tip of his tail.

Description: A bulky scarlet coloured dragon with solid, spiny black plates along his neck, back and tail.

Personality: As befits his type. Lamhcalad is hot tempered and rash. However, he still tries to fight for what he sees as ‘right’.

Description: A dark green dragon with two sets of wings, and wholes tail ends with several viney whips.

Personality: Gauvain is the balance of the trio, able to keep Lamhcalad in check and encourage Galeas. He is kind and friendly, even to his foes.

Jack would often accompany his mother and father to work and as a result has gained some valuable skills for his journey. His brother is five years older because his mother fell ill for a few years after James was born. James left for his own journey several years ago and recently retired to return home help his ageing father with work so Jack could have his own journey.

Description: Brown short hair, black fedora, red jacket, blue jeans and black trainers. He has a light brown worn backpack

Personality: A little hot-heated and arrogant but also a determined kid

Background: Both kids moved to Scabbard town with their parents when they were little. As such both grew up with the expectation of starting a pokemon journey. But the siblings had different ideals on it. Lynda grew to gain an interest in how cute the pokemon looked and dreamed of taking part in contests with the cutest pokemon there were. While Danny watched poke tournaments on tv and hoped to one day compete in the pokemon league and win. He also doesn't understand Lyndas limitation to cute pokemon. As long as they're powerful they're worth catching right?

Npc time!

Name: Draco
Age: 42
Profession: Dragon master (elite 4)
Description: Wears a long coat ripped at the bottom, clearly strong and looks older than he is
Personality: Not much of a talker as a result of his background unless it involves him talking about his dragons or battling his dragons. He is very proud of his dragons and is not afraid to show off their strength. He only gives his respect to a select few, usually those who beat him
Background: When he was young he had a fascination with dragon type pokemon, being one with few weaknesses. As a result he went on a journey to become a dragon master. No one heard from him for many years until 4 years ago when he returned to face the pokemon league with a team of dragons at his side. He was beaten only by the champion and so became a part of the "elite 4". Made up from the runners up of the last league tournament

Name:Vivian Thompson
DOB:1/18/1999
Age:16
Focus: Raising/Exploring
Talents/Skills: Swimming, Understanding her Pokemon companions, Drawing, Can identify poisonous fruits from edible and knows the basics of first aid (at least when it's about Pokemons), Her special "skill" would be finding her way to where ever she is going without really having to worry too much (trusts intuition maybe too much but it has helped her before), and of course making new friends easily.
 
Starter: Eevee
Description:Short light brown hair (hair covers right eye), Green eyes, Red jacket with a hood, grey shorts (with roomy side pockets), black fingerless gloves, red and white sneakers, brown medium sized backpack, belt to hold the pokeballs
 
Personality: She's usually kind to anyone and makes friends with almost every pokemon and human she meets, likes going to what other consider scary places and absolutely loves Ghost and Psychic type pokemon, She hates forcing pokemon to fight each other and usually avoids fights and using pokeballs (unless absolutely necessary), She loves adventuring around and simply finding and drawing new pokemon, She might seem a bit naive but she is rather smart when needs to be, a bit tomboy, doesn't really care for girly things (that much), Likes telling scary stories and would love to encounter Legendary pokemon (Mewtwo is the best option for her), can be stubborn when she decides to do something there's no stopping her, hates to see her pokemon companions in pain and avoids putting them in danger at all costs (even if it meant sacrificing herself)
 
Background: Born in  Longbow City, moved to Scabbard Town with her parents when she was very young because of her father's job. She found her starter Pokemon from the Stockade Forest near Lapra's Lake. A lost little Eevee (boy). She usually spent her time with pokemon than other children and usually explored the Stockade Forest. (often coming back with few small bruises she got while climbing up trees and running too fast only to fall down on the ground) All the pokemon she has encountered chose to be her friend and companion themselves.
 
And for the legendary I'd like Mewtwo... ehhe.

Name: Robert Stone.
DOB: 5th February 1988
Age: 27
Focus: Training/raising
Talents/Skills: First Aid, bushcraft, tracking, driving
Starter: Totodile
Description: A slender man of average height, with short brown hair, though he is never seen without his hat. He habitually wears his ranger uniform or a civilian deriviative of it, comfortable in shirt and shorts in basically any weather.
Personality: Serious and somewhat irritable when on the job. Outside of this he is much more relaxed, though is still uneasy about having to become a first time trainer at his age. He is more wary of wild pokemon than most.
Background: A lifelong resident of Pike Town, Robert never quite understood the negativity surrounding the town and nearby Palisade Forest until a friend of his ventured into the forest. From that day onward, he was determined to become a ranger within the park, a career he has been in for close to 9 years. During this time, he has survived relying on just his wits and tranquiliser gun, but a recent incident with a pack of particularly large Victreebel deep within the forest has led his boss, Ranger Jenny, to order him to take on a team of Pokemon to aid in his duties. For this reason Robert has headed to Scabbard City to become a trainer.

 

Name: Kim Strauss.
DOB: October 13th 2001
Age: 13
Focus: Research/Raising/Battling
Talents/Skills: Extensive knowledge of Pokemon and their behaviour,
Starter: Azurill
Description: A fairly tall for her age redhead with a bob haircut and glasses. Typically seen in a camouflage jacket and trousers, as well as hiking boots
Personality:Kind-hearted and curious, if bumbling. She is determined to collect as much data on as many Pokemon as possible.
Background: Coming from Scabbard Town, it was only natural she became interested in Pokemon research, reading as much as she could on them when she was younger, and in the last few years going on excursions away from the city to study the more sedate Pokemon in the wild. On one such occassion she came across a lone Azurill along a riverbank in AO8 that took a liking to her. She's cared for it ever since then, and now has decided to be come a trainer so she can research the more powerful Pokemon safely.

 

NPC

 

Name: Sherry
Age: 20
Profession: Pokemon poacher
Description: A tall woman with long dyed blue hair and a bright green jumpsuit. Far more concerned with making a name for herself than being stealthy.
Personality: Conniving and duplicitous, she'll use every trick in the book to further her goal of capturing and selling wild and rare Pokemon.
Background: Described by her contemporaries as little more than a wannabe, she idolises groups such as Team Rocket, but so far lacks the actual skills to join any such organisation. Despite this, she is not totally incompetent, hoping to hone her talents and one day become the ultimate poacher and join a team. She is aided by her Zubat.

 

I'm also claiming the many Officer Jennys.

True, but I though people could be from wherever, then travel to Scabbard to pick up their starter and journey from there.

I've said to Skye already but for my characters its a good place to get excited about the start of the pokemon journey seeing others do it

But still, it might be that others don't realise they can start anywhere. It wasn't specifically said after all

True enough. Though sometimes it can be great to be a little creative. I added a theme song for my character.

Well while I understand you could have started from where ever you wanted (for example my character DID in fact live elsewhere for a little while) but I think it's just easier for me to take this town as a starting point. (always a classic way to start anyway)

Glad to have helped Seviper

 

One more npc then for now I'm done

 

Name: Samuel
Age: 24
Profession: Gym leader of Longbow City
Description: Pale and thin, wears old worn looking clothes
Personality: Has a habit of talking to himself, is normally fairly calm. This changes depending on how a battle goes. If he loses, he'll be happy and congratulate whoever beat him, if wins a good battle, he will be supportive to the trainer but if he wins to a trainer with low leveled pokemon or to a trainer with poorly trained Pokemon, his reaction will be hostile
Background: Before he became gym leader he used to visit the ancient prison tower a lot, anytime he was seen there he would be seen talking to no one.Some believed he was able to see and speak to ghosts,but others just believe him to be crazy. Crazy or not,he managed to get the title of gym leader and barely ever leaves the gym now. He has mixed feelings on it. As someone who believes that it is better to lose a battle than to win,he enjoys meeting challenges from new experienced trainers but his position means he cannot turn down a challenge from another trainer. He takes winning a battle against an inexperienced trainer as an insult. Those that insult him sometimes find themselves facing bad luck in their training though he would deny any involvement

A NPC for me..

Name: Matthew Thompson
Age: 37

Profession: Pokemon Researcher

Description: He is quite tall, short dark brown hair, ALWAYS wears his long white lab coat, Grey trousers, he also has got a red cap in his lab coat's pocket got from his daughter Vivian it's a good luck's charm for him, he also has got glasses which he uses when he's working.

Personality: He is usually kind to everyone but once he starts his job it might be difficult to make him listen (means that you need to use drastic methods), also if his daughter or wife are in any sort of danger he will do ANYTHING to help them. He's also a over protective father figure

Background: He used to work as a researcher in Longbow City (mostly night sifts) but he got a new and better job offer (full day job) from Scabbard City (hence why he and his family moved there) The only thing he was worried about however was the fact that there was a forest full of pokemon near by. Since his daughter would always go on an adventure even to the places no one is supposed to go (or otherwise considered highly dangerous) he would constantly worry about her safety. (He once got a phone call in the middle of the day that her daughter had been found injured he "borrowed" a co-workers car and hurried back home although in the end it wasn't any serious injury he took the day off from work.) He also loves Ghost types Pokemon which is why he has got Ghastly with him though rarely does he use it in a battle since he cares about it's well being.

Yo guys! Just need to say some things to make sure you know them.

 

Upon getting to the main part, when looking for wild Pokemon do keep going back to the map key as it gives the Pokemon available in each route. And that you can catch as many as you want but make sure there is some storyline for the rare Pokemon rather than just making them randomly appear. Otherwise there's no point in making them rare ;P

 

They HAVE to be on the list in their locations though. And that means if the list says you can catch an Abra, you cannot catch a Kadabra on the route!

 

Also, there are two marked with (S),those two will be sorted as part of the story, so don't go looking for them before you have what is necessary to catch them

 

Finally, I know some of you will look through to find some Pokemon do not have any of their evolutions on the list.There were 15 Pokemon who couldn't make the cut and so cannot me found in the wild on the routes. It might be possible to get them from a trade later on (see trading rule for info on how to do so and for the list not available) but otherwise don't go looking

 

And that's about it. Make sure you have fun! Any more questions, feel free to ask here or speak to Skye or myself

Name: Tony Bjorn

DOB: May 9th 1997

Age: 18

Focus: Exploration

Talents/Skills: High Endurance and speed

Starter: Turtwig

Description: 6ft, dark skin, low cut black hair, dark brown eyes, black fitted tank top with dark green cargos and brown boots. Traingular lined scar under left eye. 

Personality: Outgoing once well known, open-minded

Background: A newly aged young man who had ran track and Field since early middle school, Tony was more than energetic to complete school and begin his journey as an explorer. Coming from a foster family, Tony had developed the passion to travel the world and experience the many different cultures and people around him, and becoming a pokemon trainer would give him that opportunity. Growing up in the town of Rapier, Tony had got to see much of the luxury in life, touring the super store and watching some tournament fights. Once he reached 18, he had made the move to get his first pokemon and set off on his journey.

 

For my legendary, I would like Regigigas. If I can't, then I'll take Regirock.
