Pokemon: Drake and Wyvern OOC

*Insert your favourite Pokemon theme here*

We are now returning to the world of Pokemon!  This is a reboot of the previous Pokemon RP, but given how detailed the region was that Dylan and I created, we didn't want it to go to waste.


Welcome back 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.  With the exception of the Alohan region, as the climate of Ganlo isn’t best suited to the more tropical Pokemon.


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 reputation of being unlucky. So much so that the inhabitants 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, Cofagrigus, 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.

A grassy, slightly hilly route with a lovely view overlooking the sea.

Pokemon: Sentret, Zigzagoon, Wingull, Bidoof, Purrloin, Bunnelby, Fletchling, Scatterbug, Espurr

Route A03

There is a mix of coastline, hills, grass, trees along this undulating path.

Pokemon: Snorunt, Vanillite, Cubchoo, Cryogonal, Bergmite, Swinub, Delibird ®


Route A05

Even in summer this forest tends to have a layer of snow due to its elevation. The main route through is cleared of trees, but trainers often explore in the forest to either side.

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


Victory Road

The pathway to the Pokemon League. A hard slog up the mountain to the top. Only those with Eight Gym Badges or Five Contest Ribbons can enter.

North Region River Pokemon: Magikarp, Tympole, Tynamo ®


North Region Sea Pokemon: Seel, Spheal

Route A07

A long but well-travelled path through the forest.

Pokemon: Pikachu, Oddish, Bellsprout, HootHoot, Togepi ®, Murkrow

Route A10

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

Pokemon: Natu, Gligar, Phanpy, Bagon ®


Route A11

These rocky, bare plains are rarely walked. Due to their terrain most prefer to take the train between Longbow City to Cannon City.

Pokemon: Pidgeotto, Fearow, Arbok, Sandslash, Rhyhorn, Skarmory ®, Houndour


Route A12

The hills of this route have three gigantic dragons craved in the side of them, showing the white chalk below. It’s believed these figures are meant to represent the three dragons who legends say aided mankind during the Dragon Wars.

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.

Pokemon: Magnemite, Voltorb, Elekid, Rotom ®, Pachirisu, Blitzle, Joltik, Dedenne


South Region River Pokemon: Polywhirl, Goldeen, Corphish


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

A meadow covered in colourful flowers. There is no proper path through it, people just wander through as they like.

Pokemon: Farfetch'd, Kirlia ®, Roselia, Combee, Cherrim, Petilil, Floette


Route A16

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.

Pokemon: Corsola, Numel, Trapinch, Cacturne, Krokorok, Darumaka ®, Maractus, Helioptile


Route A17

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

Pokemon: Clefairy, Machoke, Graveler, Shuckle, Meditite, Grumpig, Spinda, Absol ®

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


Plots and Posting

In terms of posting order, usually it will follow the normal routine.  When you post, you wait for all the other posters to go before posting again.  However, there is an exception.  If players are involved in a Battle or Contest, then they can post again once all the other players in said Battle or Contest have gone.  So you don;t need to wait for those not taking part.


For small plots, such as tracking down rare pokemon, or small adventures, each player can run their own stories, and other players are free to join, unless the player running says otherwise.

Plots involving pokemon poaching are under Geoffrey's control, as he is handling the infamous Team Rocket trio.  If you want to have a pokemon poaching plot, drop him a note.  These can also be a way to acquire rare pokemon, or pokemon eggs.

The main meta-plot for Ganlo is being run by me, and it will slowly develop as the game continues.



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.  See below for details). If a Pokemon comes in the top three for a large City 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.



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.


Legendaries 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 Legendaries: Ho-oh, Arceus, Palkia, Dialga, Girantina, Jirachi, Victini, Celebi and Hoopa. 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.



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.



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 Pokémon not found in Ganlo, the Alolan pokemon, and 13 others (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.

Dylan is in charge of handling Trades.  So all trades need to be cleared with him.


PC’s and NPC’s

All Player Characters will be Trainers starting out on their journey.  Most Trainers are in their pre or early teens, but you can play something different if you want, as long as they are just starting as a Trainer.  As a Trainers, you can take part in 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.   Even just the other Trainers you meet on the road to challenge other players (which is useful to allow everyone to level up their Pokemon).  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.




DOB: The game is assumed to start 1st of June 2018


Focus: Battles/Contests/Breeding/Raising etc. You could have a few focuses or none.

Talents/Skills: Any Skills or talents you have. First Aid, rock climbing, swimming, cooking

Starter: You may choose any of the 18 existing starters. You can also choose another pokemon, provided it is a baby pokemon, AND fits your characters background.

Legendary Profile (For custom Legendaries)







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 sources 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)

(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.

*Ahem* Glad this is back. I'm happy enough to keep my old characters I had plans for them. Oh. And I'm going to immediately claim Shaymin as my legendary

Anyway... profiles

Main characters


Name: Lynda Andrews

DOB: 2/9/2005

Age: 12

Focus: Contests and Breeding/Raising cute Pokemon

Talents/Skills: A good singer, rollerblading

Starter: Fennekin

Description: Blond hair split into two pigtails at the back, wears a red fedora with pink buttons

Personality: Generally calm and kind, though some would call her a "girly" girl

Background: See Danny's background

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 Lynda's limitation to cute Pokemon. As long as they're powerful they're worth catching right?


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: 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
