PLOT


Creisal: a world untouched by humans. The continent is graced with plains, mountains, rivers, forests, snowy peaks, forests, and more. The land is so large that even its inhabitants, human-beast hybrids called Pokemon, haven't discovered everything the landmass has to offer. Some say that to the far west lies the edge of the world, and those who travel there never return.

While Creisal undergoes political tension and conflict between its three Clans and noble families, the continent often remains in a state of relative peace. The last war occurred almost one-hundred fifty years ago, and it had wiped out much of Creisal's population and two of its royal families. Pokemon try to remain out of conflict ever since the war, although, at times, their tensions tread close to rekindling old and vengeful flames.

But this is not a story of Pokemon being at each other's throats. A new adversary stalks the shadows, and while they do not have the elemental prowess of Creisal's inhabitants, they are just as dangerous. Pokemon are disappearing and showing up dead, and a new, dark era falls over the land. A group of young Pokemon, driven by desperation, must go on a dangerous journey in order to save their people...

FAQ


Ambra, you said that this RP will have gijinkas, not Pokemon!
The creatures that we know as Pokemon (the fearsome/fuzzy/cute/cuddly animals that ride along on our shoulders) don't exist. In this world, the gijinkas are known as Pokemon.

Okay, then what exactly are Pokemon in this world?
Pokemon are human-beast hybrids that bear traits and attributes to the Pokemon that we know. Overall, they look human. However, they have wings, tails, fangs, etc. A Charizard has the trademark wings and candlelit tail, perhaps claws and fangs. A Delcatty has the long ears and fluffy tail. A Sawsbuck has antlers and a mane of fur. It all varies, but you should get the concept by now.

Pokemon have four attacks in their move sets. However, simple bites, scratches, tail lashes, and other forms of hand-to-hand combat do not count as moves. Attacks such as Fly and Surf don't count as moves, either. Some Pokemon may choose to fight with weapons such as bows and swords-- sometimes, they use their feathers as arrows or poison to coat their weapons!

What is the world like? Is it medieval, modern, etc?
Good question! Criesal is actually a mix of both. There are urban cities in certain areas (although they are rare), but most settlements fall under medieval constructs. Technology such as guns and tanks do not exist in Creisal. However, I might allow things such as television and such in the urban areas.

Can I play a legendary?
No. Some Pokemon are not allowed. This includes all legendaries and certain psuedo-legends. I would also recommend that you stick to the more animal-like Pokemon rather than human-like ones.

Wait, do Pokemon eat other Pokemon?
Not usually. There are some groups of Pokemon that do prey on others. For ethical reasons, we're going to say that 99% of carnivorous and omnivorous Pokemon consume animals such as cows, pigs, hare, etc.

What happens when Pokemon of different species breed?
Unlike in the games, Pokemon do not lay eggs. Even the reptilian ones give live birth. Like humans, they often bear one child at a time. The child's breed may match the mother's or father's. For instance, a group of four siblings may consist of two Growlithe and two Ninetails, three Growlithe and one Ninetails, etc.

Do Pokemon evolve?
Yes. Pokemon are born at the first stage of evolution. They evolve once they complete feats. The feat may involve them winning many battles or maturing in any other way. By their mid-twenties, Pokemon are expected to be at their final stages.

Can we play as evolved Pokemon?
Yes, you can! Since we are main characters, we are able to start off decently strong. However, we will be inexperienced in battle overall.

RULES


- Do I really have to go over RPG rules?
- Please, please, please be active in the RP: this means be active in IC, OOC, Discord, or whatever else comes along your way.
- Again, this is high-casual. We're not asking for huge posts. We're asking for quality characters and posts (which are at least two to three paragraphs long.
- I prefer to play with 18+ year olds.
- If you don't wanna follow these set rules, then there's no point in joining; it'll just cause conflict.
- I'm going to definitely need co-GMs that can be trusted.
- You can make as many characters as you'd like, as long as you can handle them. I'd also like to ask that you take your time making the sheets instead of rushing through them.
- Please follow the format in the character skeleton.
- I will not accept faceclaims or extremely realistic art (so much so that it looks like a photograph) for the appearance section of your character. Anything else is fine, including anime.

Awesome. If you're new, please provide examples of writing. I'm going to be waiting for a handful of more people, then pick which ones will stay.

If you have any further questions, I'm more than happy to answer.

NOTE: Depending on the interest I get, I might move the RP to another site. Please let me know if you're okay with it.

If the roleplay, is moved off-site I may have to withdraw my interest simply due to being on my phone most of the time some sites don't like to cooperate on my crappy mobile data. Let me know if you're moving it.

Edit: If it isn't moved and I do mange to garner a spot in this lovely roleplay I am debating either a Vulpix, Pikachu, or Squirtle just because those are my three favorite Pokémon...might go for a later Gen but Kanto is my preferred gen.

@Juvvie I've decided that I'm not moving it. It's staying here. ^^ Just saying you can play as evolved Pokemon as well, so you can play as a Ninetails, Raichu, etc if you want.

@Darkmoon Angel Mega evolution may become a thing later on. For now, we're going to be focusing on basic evolution.

Oooh playing as a ninetails really has some good ideas flowing into my head, but then so does Raichu. I'm not so sure about Squirtle at this point, but may also consider making an Eevolution if possible?

I'm really glad to see interest has begun to build up a bit. I'm working with Ambra on certain details and the like. However, one thing I'm thinking about is how we'll answer some questions that might be a bit tougher to give clear guidelines for. I'm thinking something like polls and the like through discord and stuff, but we'll see. Honestly just glad y'all are as interested as we are!!

Also, discord will not be the sole manner of communications. It's just easier for some of us at times lol Also, PMs are a good way to get attention when the OOC isn't working out as well.
@AmbraI got your back, fam :D

I'm compiling a list of pokemon I like, ones I can find faceclaims/pictures for, and ones that just seem like they'll be fun to mess around with. Right now... the list is somewhat long, but not quite lol I might go for Shinx or Growlithe... Maybe Gengar? It's so hard to choose.

EDIT: Eeveelutions can be really interesting.

@Demon Shinobi there are really so many good Pokémon choices to choose from depending on the type of characyer you're wanting to use. It's so hard for me to settle on one >.<

Gengar is a personal favorite of mine though, Growlithe is also great.

I'm considering making an Umbreon and wondering if Eevolutions would be considered too rare? If so, I can definitely go with my Ninetails or Raichu idea. Is there a certain age range we're going for here? Do gijinkas have ages? Or are we going purely based on levels here?
