Still here and working away.
Ok, here's my Pokemon world character who just got approved over PM. She might work as one of the solo characters, though it'd be interesting to see her as part of a group.Name: Mililani Kekoa
Hometown: Hau'oli City
Personality: Mililani was once an energetic and adventurous person. Now, that energy manifests as cynicism and a quick temper. She tends to focus on people's negative traits and assume the worst about them, until they prove themselves trustworthy - and in her eyes, it takes a lot to do that. She shows a friendlier side around her Pokemon, who have been her constant companions throughout her travels and the only ones who have stayed true to her.
Strongly disliking fake people, she values honesty, to the point that she can be blunt. She doesn't always live up to this value, however, as she tries to hide her more vulnerable, lonely side from others, insisting she's alright when she isn't.
Her curiosity isn't completely gone, although her desire to explore is tempered with wariness and a tendency to prepare for the worst.
History: Growing up in the beautiful Hau'oli City, Mililani preferred to spend her time outdoors rather than indoors. Her father, who ran a cosy little hotel on the seafront, appeared warm and charming towards the public, but showed his true, controlling side towards the family. To escape this toxic environment, Lani would hang out around the seafront and shops with her two closest friends, Lea and Kale. She'd also befriend the local Pokemon, turning out to take after her mother, a nurse, in personality - if she found a sick or injured Pokemon, she'd help them in any way she could.
Finally, her mother left the guy and moved with Lani to Iki Town. Lani still frequently met up with Lea and Kale, and after completing her schooling, set out with them on a Pokemon training journey. Her disillusioned mother warned her to be cautious, as people weren't always what they seemed.
At first, Mililani didn't think much about this. She was around people she trusted. Over time, though, she noticed Pokemon training had brought out a side to Lea and Kale she hadn't noticed before. It started with their joking mockeries of her starter choice, Popplio. Then, when Kale's Rowlet evolved into Dartrix, his attitude towards its ditziness turned harsh. He'd talk down to anyone who lost to him, including her, and push his Pokemon too hard while trying to be the best. Lea, meanwhile, displayed an elitist side that had come across as confidence in the past, and ditched the other two after befriending a group of other trainers she believed would be more helpful to her during her travels.
Setting off on her own, Mililani decided it was time for a change of direction, joining Aether Foundation. There were three reasons for this. Firstly, it would be a way to help Pokemon. Secondly, she reasoned they'd keep her in check in case being a trainer brought out a less than pleasant side to her. And lastly, it was a reminder that there were genuinely good people in the world, without any ulterior motives...
As soon as she found out about their dirty secrets, she quit. Having given up on humanity, she travelled across Alola by herself, still studying and caring for the Pokemon she found, but with no idea where to go or who to turn to. As it turned out, her next destination wouldn't even be her choice. Freak storms swept the land, followed by an earthquake, and the next thing Mililani knew, she'd ended up in a strange, unfamiliar world.
Was it something to do with the wormholes she'd once studied, leading to other dimensions? She doesn't know, but working with the experts to find out is something she's reluctant to do. For all she knows, they could be trying to turn this to their advantage.
Pokemon Team:Knowing she isn't the most popular Pokemon species in the world, Naia started out a little shy, but Mililani helped her build her confidence over time. Quieter and less showy that most in the Popplio line, she comforts distressed Pokemon by softly singing to them. She evolved all the way into Primarina in Alola, but found herself changed back into a Brionne on Earth.While kind, he's a little mischievous, sneaking treats from his trainer's bag or tying knots in her hair when she's not looking. He has more of a healing role than a combat one, but will fight to assist and defend others.Found as an abandoned Riolu, she warmed to Mililani and her team, becoming unwaveringly loyal. She has a prideful streak and loves competition, constantly pushing herself to become stronger and refusing to show any sign of weakness.This peppy Pokemon first approached Mililani while the trainer was in the dumps after an argument with her travelling companions, and put on a pom-pom dance for her. Tiny yet brimming with energy, she spends most of her time in her electric form.The peacekeeper of the team, Aouli calmly resolves arguments (usually started by Ohanna or Keahi), or at least tries to. While usually gentle, it's a bad idea to make him angry, especially by harming his trainer or teammates.After Mililani chased a flock of menacing Mandibuzz away from him with her Primarina, the little wild Cubone decided to stay with her. His abundance of natural enemies made him cautious, a trait that remained even after he evolved, although he became much more feisty and began to respond to perceived threats by attacking. Naia, who acts like an adoptive mother to him, often has to calm him down with her songs.
Will have my Earth character soon.
I recently learned that Enalais is dropping the RP as well, which does make things a bit more difficult on me. I would have a difficult time taking over for him on plots that I don't know that much about. For those not in the Discord, we have been talking over perhaps doing a reboot on this RP. The setting would be the same, and you could use the same characters if you wish, perhaps some of the same events, depending. I do want to keep some of the freeform style that the RP began with, but I would want to focus on a smaller number of plots to prevent this from happening again.
I was wanting to ask everyone's opinion on if they would prefer to reboot this RP, or attempt to move ahead with what we have currently?

I think Zarkun is reffering ONLY to his Pokemon universe character. He knows that his Earth world character has to go through the test first.
To answer your question directly, yes. Jason can venture the world with his Pokemon already, but his Pokeballs won't work anymore. So his Pokemon will have to be walking with him. I didn't make Cerces give up Liz's Pokemon; that was all her own doing.
But if he is found wandering the streets of some city, he's likely to be noticed, and they would surely try to recruit him. Also remember, he has no Earth money to start off with and speaks another language.
Finally, you didn't mention catching Pokemon, but he obviously can't do that without Pokeballs anyways.
So in short, if he wants to try and travel the world on his own, it won't be easy. But it's up to you.
Sort like Liz, I think he wants to wait for us to give character development before we just about ignore it catching pokemon lol, and I think he wants you to write for the testing part like I an doing for Circe
