Made this rp in casual roleplay forever ago, but it never got off the ground. Always wanted to try it again on the small scale with just 2-3 trainers/rivals. Basically to anyone familiar with the Pokemon franchise, the setting is similar to Sun/Moon in there's no gyms or Pokémon League. I'm looking to do a more narrative story focusing on the characters and exploring the region. Shoot me a DM if you're interested!

The Kaida Region

Based on: The American West/Rocky Mountains

Theme: Exploration/Adventure

Background: The Kaida region isn't as well known as some of the other regions in the Pokémon world. It's on the smaller side and there is no formal Pokémon League. The region's only major claim to fame is the Calagon Mountain Range. Depending on the time of year, various dragon-type Pokémon migrate to the Kaida region to mate in the vast mountains that dominate the landscape. Various towns and small cities have sprouted around the mountains where space is available. An ancient legend in the region says that should one ascend to the peak of Mt. Calagon - the highest point in the regions - they would meet the legendary Pokémon that created the Kaida region as a haven for dragons.

Towns/Cities: In keeping with the exploration theme of the region, all the towns/cities that make up the Kaida region are named after planets in the solar system. They are (in order of appearance):
-Mercer Town -> A small town in the southeastern corner of the region. Partly isolated from the rest of Kaida; mostly farms and a small downtown area with shops and other essentials. The Cypress Pokémon Lab is located here.

-Hesperus City -> The smallest 'City' in the Kaida region. Famed for being the birthplace of 'Venus Threads', the foremost fashion chain in the Kaida Region. The city sits on the border of the Oberon Forest, a massive forest concealing a wide variety of Pokémon.

-Terran Town -> Sitting at the base of Mt. Ender - The smallest of the Calagon Mountains - Terren Town is famous for its great mines from which coal, minerals, and even Pokémon fossils are retrieved from the earth. Once every year, the town celebrates "Fossil Fest" in which a tournament is held and the winners receive rare fossils that were recovered from the mine. Fossil Restoration occurs here.

-Phobos Town -> On the northern edge of the map, Phobos Town stands against the harsh wilderness. It's said that in the early days of the region, attacks by dragon Pokémon during their migrations were a frequent occurrence. As a result the people of Phobos Town spend their lives preparing for battle against the dragons, describing themselves as 'Dragon Busters'.

-Zhivegas City -> Often called 'The Gem of the Desert', Zhivegas City is the largest City in Kaida. Filled to the brim with lavish hotels, game corners, and plenty of stores, Zhivegas has become glitzy and glamourous tourist destination for the people who come to Kaida. The regional Power Plant is located here.

-Kronos Town -> The second desert city in the region. Compared to Zhivegas, Kronos Town is the opposite. The people are old-fashioned, preferring to work the land and honor the old customs. This town houses the trainyard for the "Torkoal Express", the steam train that traverses the region.

-Solaris City -> The second largest city. Solaris sits on the western end of the region, facing the open ocean. Famed for it's sunsets, the comings and goings of various dragons over the horizon is considered by many to be a sight to behold.

-Umbriel Base -> Before the Overseer system was put in place, there was a town at the foot of Mt. Calagon. Unfortunately, various natural disasters caused by the feuding dragons in the mountains caused the town to become abandoned. All the remains are the ruins and a research facility created by Prof. Cypress' team.

-Plutus Village -> The final hurdle before a trainer may ascend to the peak of Mt. Calagon. Built into the cliffside, this small village is populated by the descendants of the Drakken Tribe, the first inhabitants of the Kaida Region. It is said when the wind whips through the village, you can hear the cries of those who tried to reach the summit... and failed.

Gyms (or lack thereof): Because they don't have a Pokémon League, the Kaida Region doesn't have much use for gyms. In place of that, the towns all have an Overseer. The Overseers are essentially the caretakers of a particular section of the region. In order to access a restricted section of a route, a trainer must defeat the Overseer in a Pokémon battle and earn a Mark in recognition they are skilled enough to explore the restricted area. Once a trainer has acquired all eight Marks from the Overseers only then are they deemed ready to ascend Mt. Calagon.

The Professor: The local Pokémon Professor in Kaida is Professor Cypress. Cypress is a former trainer for the Johto Region who is obsessed with studying Dragon-Type Pokémon. He believes there is something truly unique about them and that Kaida holds the secret to truly understanding this bizarre group of Pokémon.

Starters: In keeping with the Professor's Dragon-Type obsession, all his starters are dragon-type. It should go without saying, but all three starters will evolve into a regional "Kaidan" variant.
- Dratini -> Kaidan Dragonair -> Kaidan Dragonite (Dragon/Steel)
- Bagon -> Kaidan Shelgon -> Kaidan Salamence (Dragon/Ground)
- Gible -> Kaidan Gabite -> Kaidan Garchomp (Dragon/Ice)

Team Stratos: In the Kaida Region there are whispers of a shadowy organization known as Team Stratos. Very little is known about their motives other than their strange fixation on studying the mythology of the Kaida Region. It seems they - like many others - have a vested interest in the legendary Pokémon atop Mt. Calagon.
