Plot

Within the infinity of the multiverse, there lies a parallel Earth where Pokemon are real. Life hear is a mixture of what we see in the anime and what we know as reality.

For example, you need to be eighteen years old to become a trainer, but with parent permission or special circumstances, you can obtain a permit as early as your sixteenth birthday. Once you've become a trainer, life is quite similar to the anime. You can compete in battle leagues and contests. You can become a breeder or a ranger. The world is your Cloyster.

However you decide to spend your time, the International Pokemon Association will be there to aid you. They provide free services such as health care (found at Poke Centers), free items such as Pokeballs (found at Poke Marts), and a number of other things like free transportation. Poke Centers and Poke Marts are found in practically ever city and town in the world.

In return for the free aid, trainers agree to carry out assignments, which are sent directly to your Pokedex. You may turn down assignments, but of course, turning down too many will result in your loss of trainer status. At which point, you will no longer receive free services or items, but your Pokemon won't be taken from you or anything.


The Gist of Things

In this RP, you can be either a new trainer or an established trainer. You can travel anywhere in the world and catch Pokemon or any number of things you can imagine.

To get started, you're going to need to post a character sheet in the Characters section. There isn't much required information, and formatting of your sheet is up to you.

But before even that, you'll want to decide where you're going to start your Pokemon adventure. Simply let me know where you would like to start your character via an OOC post, and I will tell you what is in the area, including Pokemon and things to do. If the things in that area don't sound interesting, pick a new location.

Once you've chosen your starting location and had your character sheet approved, you are free to start posting in the IC section. Please, to accommodate more trainers and keep things moving, keep posts short: three short paragraphs at most.

I will try my best to respond to every IC post, especially when your character moves to a new location. The only time I might not respond is if two trainers are interacting with each other and not moving anywhere. All that said, if I don't respond to your post right away, you don't have to wait. As long as someone (anyone) posts after you, you are free to post again.

The pace of this RP will be determined by the majority. In the first IC post, I will keep track of the day's date. Whenever things get quiet, when people aren't posting very much, I'll push the timeline to the next day, week, or even month. It all depends on the situation.


Game Mechanics???

I have decided to take out all game mechanics, in favor of focusing on the story telling. If you want to have a Pokemon Showdown battle with me however, just ask. I like a good battle every now and then. And if two people want to have a battle against one another, feel free. If there is demand for a tournament or something, I'll consider it.

Furthermore, there is no need to keep track of what levels your Pokemon are at (though you're more than welcome to do so). All I ask is that you be reasonable. Don't go from newbie trainer to Pokemon Master over night, or anything ridiculous.


Any questions?
If not, here's one for you, "If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I think you're confused. This is "Pokemon: Earth". Meaning, Pokemon in the real world. Not to be confused with Pokemon Go, but you get the idea.

If you tell me where on Earth you are interested in starting, I could tell you what Pokemon are found in that area. I have a spreadsheet with every Pokemon up to Gen 7 which placed around the globe.

This is Mont Saint-Michel, an island and mainland commune in Normandy, France. The island is located about one kilometer off the country's northwestern coast, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches. This island has a long history as a stronghold for a number of monarchies.

At night, a certain Dark/Steel type Pokemon patrols the streets and punishes all evildoers. Because of this, Mont Saint-Michel is known for having a crime rate of zero, but that comes at a cost. Don't be out late at night doing anything even remotely suspicious.




Who's that Pokemon!?

Sorry for the late app! Things piled up. I have my character relatively older and that his past is that he has traveled throughout the USA, so if any pokemon are not near Wyoming, I would have him just get them from his travels. Hope everything is ok!

So there is nothing wrong with your character, but there are some things you should know about your Pokemon. Because I've already placed Pokemon around the world, I already know where your three Pokemon could be found naturally.

Zubat can be found in Eastern parts of USA, so you're fine there. He was probably found at night or in a cave.

As for Abra and Elekid/Electabuzz, those are not native to the USA, not even North America for that matter. Abra can be found in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Elekid can be found in Central Africa and Eastern Asia.

You don't have to change anything. Malcom's father could have caught the Elekid on his travels as a trainer. And Abra probably has an interesting but sad story, probably involving being left behind by a former trainer.

With all that said, I'm going to make an opening post in the IC section. Then you can begin.

Alright, I've made my opening post. That first IC post will be home base for knowing what day it is during the roleplay. Also, the Google Map will be updated with information regarding where your character is at. Zoom in on your character's location to see things in the area.

As for Pokemon, these are the Pokemon you can find within a 50 mile radius from your current location:
(This includes their evolutionary tree.)

Weedle: Found in wooded areas, not so much in public parks.
Pidgey: Found pretty much anywhere: parks, fields, town squares, etc...
Psyduck: Found near the waters edge. They're shy and hard to approach.
Ghastly: Found at night whenever there aren't many people around, especially in cemeteries.
Wabbuffet: A rare sight in the woods.
Snubull: Found in the woods, though they are a commonly seen, because a lot of people have them.
Zigzagoon: Found in the woods, near suburban areas where they occasionally pick through people's trash.
Shuppet: Found at night whenever there aren't many people around, especially in cemeteries.
Shinx: A rare sight in the woods.
Carnivine: Found in the woods near the water's edge.
Drillbur: Found in fields and woods. They shy away fast.
Scraggy: Found in the city at night causing mischief.
Klink: Found anywhere in the city, but they are quick to run.
Litwick: Found at night, especially near old historical sites.
Clauncher: Found at the water's edge.
Klefki: Found in the city, but they are quick to run.
Togedemaru: Found in the city.

If you're looking for something in particular, let me know. Otherwise, go ahead and post about what your character is doing in the area. That will give me inspiration for things to add to the area.

Gotcha chief!

EDIT: Just noticed, you have located in my hometown, not my current location. My current local is near Casper. I'll make my first IC post, and if I mention and pokemon that aren't nearby, I'll change them later. I don't plan on battling or interacting with any wild pokemon at first.

EDIT 2: I also just want to say, amazing job with the map and everything! This looks awesome and I can't wait for this to pick up steam!

Oops, my bad. Given your actual location, here are the Pokemon within 50 miles of your location:

Diglett: Found in grasslands and mountainous areas, away from the city.
Geodude: Found in the mountains.
Tauros: Found in grassy areas.
Sudowoodo: Found in the mountains.
Misdreavus: Found at night causing mischief.
Cacnea: Found in dryer areas with little vegetation.
Solrock: Found away from the city, during the day, often in the mountains.
Tropius: Found away from the city, during the day, anywhere but rare.
Shinx: Found in the mountains.
Patrat: Found in grassy flatlands.
Bouffalant: Found in grassy flatlands.
Rufflet: Found in the mountains, but can be spotted anywhere.
Bunnelby: Found in the mountains and in the grasslands.
Hawlucha: Found anywhere away from the city, but a rare sight indeed.
Salandit: Found in the mountains, but at lower altitudes near the base.
Jangmo-o: Found in the mountains, hiding well and far from human civilization.

Just change that Pidgey sighting to a Rufflet, and you'll be golden.

So I looked up Casper Wyoming, and as far as I can tell, they have no Subway system. I incorporated that into my post.

Also, I updated the map to show your current location in respect to the Pokemon Center that I mentioned.
