Bio

This is my second profile on here, and I have been Play-By-Post RPing for about nine years now. I do my best to see every RP to the end or at least let my character come to his/her own dramatic conclusion when I feel like signing off. Just like novel writing in real life, I tend to find myself on long hiatuses. Since writing is a great way to work out your brain, I try stay engaged as much as possible.

My favorite genres include futuristic worlds, mysteries, and super powers. Any mixture of these three elements will peek my interest.

I hope we get more people O.o


Me too, but in the meantime, if you want to free roam the globe, feel free. You never know what you might find. :)

Since we've already done a showdown battle, feel free to summarize their battle to its conclusion in your next post.
..."Oh come ON!" Indigo released Hawka from her pokeball, and the Combusken came out in a fiery burst. She let out a few practice swings before assuming her stance.

But he was interrupted...


"He's not interested in battling right now." Said a voice from the forest's edge. When the group looked, they saw an old man, hunched over the top of a wooden cane.

"Old man Nogu!" Zvi shouted as he ran to the elderly figure. The two shared a quick hug. "These are my friends." Zvi motioned to the others. "That's Dan, and... well... I just met the rest of them. I don't remember their names, but they seem nice."

Nogu smiled warmly. "Any friend of Zvi is a friend of mine. Nice to meet you all."

By the time everyone had said their hellos, Drampa Hermes let out a loud yawn. His eyes slowly closed as he decided to begin his nap here and now.

Old man Nogu noticed the disappointment on Indy's face, and decided to try and cheer the boy up. "Hey, if Hermes doesn't want to battle, that's fine." The old man then pulled out a Pokeball and clicked it's button. Hermes was engulfed in its red light and disappeared. "I have other Pokemon that would love to stretch their legs. Goodness knows we could all use the exercise. What do you say?"

... Sometime soon though, Zvi shouted out a question, and Indy knew where he wanted to go. "Say, Cloud Temple sounds like an awesome place to go!" He shouted over the wind, hoping Margo and Dan would agree.

... She supposed that Cloud Temple might be cooler than another community. She poked Indy in the ribs to get his attention and gave a thumbs up, not wanting to shout in his ear, before returning to looking at their surroundings...

Dan nodded "I agree with Indy, Cloud temple sounds nice."
...
"Well me an Indy had to babysit some pokemon and...." Dan reminisced about the incident, while they drew closer to the mountain.


As Indy and Zvi talked and all four of the young adventures flew, the forest below became thicker and thicker. It was becoming almost tropical, jungle-like even. Looking down, they would occasionally catch glimpses of Pansage and Simsage jumping from tree to tree.

As another hour passed, the clouds above were becoming thicker as well. The thicker they became, the lower they got as well. Then finally, it got to the point where they couldn't fly any further. The thick clouds were touching the treetops and obscuring their vision. They had to go down, below the green canopy. And so, they did. Straight down, they floated like feathers.

The two Drampa touched down on the forest floor with their heavy pillowed feet. "Alright!" Zvi proclaimed. "The temple is less than a mile's walk that way." He pointed through a vague trail in the brushes and then climbed off Pawpaw. He then waved for everyone else to follow suit. "Thanks Pawpaw! Thanks Hermes! You two can take it easy for a while, but you think you could wait around here for us to get back?"

One after the other, the two Drampa vaguely nodded their heads and let out a huff of air. They would happily take naps while the children went off to play.
Sorry, not trying to rock the boat, but from how I have played DND and other tabletop games, dice are a great way to earn wins.

@iKatamalicious

If dice rolls are your preferred way, I'll allow you the option to choose either (dice or Showdown), even for main baddies.

But consider this when choosing dicerolls; it'll be up to my discretion to decide the values of the dice. Of course obvious things like Pokemon levels will be considered, but as for Pokemon typings and so on, I will have to make judgement calls. So you have to be fine with whatever I decide and whatever the end result may be.

At least with Showdown, all the formulas are already in place and not subjective.
@Balthazar007

Hey Balth, I'm just curious why we use pokemon showdown for the battles and everything instead of dice rolls? I've always preferred dice rolls (mainly bc I always have a hard time with grasping competitive battling mechanics and all that lmao), so I was just wondering. : )


It's just a preference of mine. It makes it feel more like your playing one of the games, instead of just another RP.

I don't mind if you want to dice roll unimportant characters, like trainers along the routes or minor baddies hanging around a base. But for major characters, I would rather you earn your win like you would in the games.
@Balthazar007

Updated, lmk what you think of the changes ☺☺


It's good. You're all ready to go.
Hey guys, my schedule decided it wanted to not go at all hoe I wanted it to, so I doubt I can get much out until Saturday, sorry for the inconvenience!


That's okay.
@Balthazar007 Been a long minute there, but I'd love to join in again too! I'll be rebooting my old characters as well, though I believe I'll be editing Dana's team and Camden's personality (keeping the rest the same), and I'm open to running edits by you over OOC or PM when I get to them. That sound okay with you?


Sounds great!
January 2036



The New Year's storm had come and passed with the fewest casualties to date. Infrastructure of the years had been upgraded, and all emergency response units were waiting in the wings near high risk sites for wildfires, floods, earthquakes, and more. Then came the rebuilding phase. The oldest, least steady buildings that were destroyed, would now become the newest, strongest ones.

The popular theory has been that Hawaii would see the largest influx of Pokemon, since the seventh generation was based on it. Therefore, all incoming flights for regular civilians had to be closed many months ago. Only official trainers were allowed passage, assuming they would be needed to control the Pokemon population boom. This theory turned out to be mostly true, but towards the end of the month, it became apparent that not ALL Gen 7 Pokemon ended up here... just most.
