Starting this Friday we are going to start beta testing the board to make sure everything goes smoothly. This beta testing will hopefully last no more than a week or two. During that time a total of twelve people will be selected to participate in the beta test. Six of those twelve people actively helped in the creation and function of this so they will automatically be in. To make it fair the other six people will be other board members. Now to keep feelings from being hurt and to keep it from being secret, anyone that wants to be in the beta test can sign up for it here, that way we will know those that want to be in it and can pick the six from that category. Now to make this as fair as possible we are making sure that everyone has a chance and will not judge based on personal feelings. The people we choose to take part in the beta will be those that we all believe can contribute to it and know about both the ASB and the RPG style of play. This will also not be limited to RPGers, ASBers have a chance to sign up for the beta too. Now before you all rush to sign up, I must warn you that you will need to spend a good amount of time with this beta since we will want to open this forum as soon as possible. Almost every day we will probably be trying something new or something different, so although you don't have to be here every day, it would be best to have you here as much as possible when we are doing this. Finally I want to mention that the beta testers will receive something special at the end of all of this that they can use in the RPG, this is a reward for all of the hard time they will have to spend working with this. Alright well good luck to everyone and let the sign ups commence.

While I've been away from ASB for a while now, I used to be quite into it and therefore would love to help beta test this forum.

EDIT: I have a lot of time on my hands, lol, and I would like to see if I can help.

Signing up and re-posting my opinion that the reward should not be in-game unless everyone who wants to is allowed to participate in the Beta.

Signing up and re-posting my opinion that the reward should not be in-game unless everyone who wants to is allowed to participate in the Beta.

And if you get accepted I assume this concern will suddenly stop mattering?

Of course I'm in, I'm one of the people meant to beta test anyhow.

Actually, it won't stop mattering even if I am accepted! I am a huge proponent of fair and equal treatment and opportunity.

[color=#990A66]Sometimes, life isn't fair, and neither are games. It's always a case of fairness, but nobody ever wins it. You can't keep everything fair, so we weren't making a absolutely thorough attempt to make it fair anyway...

All we are looking for now are people to test the systems and processes this board will be based on. We never said that input, comments, and suggestions by others would stop. If anything we want as many people as possible to observe, but they won't be participating in the actual system until we are sure that the project will follow through with as little error as possible.

Basically, this is just a list of people that we will choose from to be guinea pigs for this project. They will participate, everyone else will observe. If you see a problem, then tell us. If something seems to be working well, tell us too. Obviously, obeservation is not a taxing job, thus the reason the guinea pigs will receive a reward for being as such.

Now, stop the squabbling and move on with your lives.... If you need to further debate the issue, do it through AIM or PM.

JUST NOT HERE!

If I hear another word regarding this arguement between JT, HK, or UC, you'll ALL be getting a warning. Period.

[color=thistle]Well, I am in this already. ^^

Anyone else who has complaints, just remember this. The Beta testers will have to abandon all our hard efforts when the actual game begins. We will start with entirely new teams, etc. It's hardly unfair.
And I like the whole signing up thing. Glad to see some of you all on this! I can see it being fun...

If there's still availible space, I'd like to participate in the Beta Testing, as well. Even though I'm still a sort of newbie to ASB, I think of myself as at least a decent RPer. And I won't mind having to start completely over once it is over.

The First National Bank of Sotai

Hello Everyone! And welcome to the First National Bank of Sotai. This will be the place that all of your points will be stored, which you can access any time. You may also store your money here but that will be explained more lower. Along with the interest rate. Also you may open an account here before joining the RPG, just to save time.

Here are the rules:

1) Every single post you make in this thread regarding a transaction must be accompanied by a link either to a battle which you've participated in, the Approval Tower, or anywhere else where points or money can be traded or used. Failure to provide a link will result in a 4 point fine. And yes, you can have a negative balance.

2) If there is a problem with your balance, you'll need to provide links supporting your claim. Attempting to lie about your account will result in a 4 point fine.

3) Do NOT edit your bank posts after you put them up. It's all right to edit if you wanted to fix something within a few minutes of posting the post or edit in another transaction, when I'm not likely to be doing any updating, but if your last two transactions are hours apart, you'd better to make a separate post. Or if you realize you've slipped up on something, make another post pointing out the mistake and we'll get to fixing it.

4) Don't hassle the bankers

5) If a customer has not been active for a significant amount of time (3+ months), their account will be deleted. If they happen to come back and remember their exact balance, they can keep what they had before. Also if it is found that your account was deleted while you still owed the bank money through a loan, the loan amount will be doubled.

Money
To store money here: First you just have to post the amount and transaction here to take money out or place money in. Second: In the RPG make a post of your character visiting the bank in any major city. Now you do not have to store money in the bank, yet to recieve the interest rate and for a easier time to keep track of money then this place will help. Money stored here will be subject to an interest rate in which your money value will increase per month depending on the interest rate of that month. Interest rates will fluctuate with how many people are storing money in the bank, and the current environment in the RPG world.

- Loans You may withdraw loans from the bank, at any time. When you do your account will decrease or show a negative balance depending on how much you withdraw. If your account shows a negative balance, any money that you receive in the RPG will automatically go to paying off the loan.

- Loan Request Fill out the form as followed to request a loan.
Name:
Amount of Loan: How much you want to take out, anywhere from $1 to $1,000

- Current Accounts:
River ~ Money: $11, Points: 0
drew ~ Money: $110, Points: 0
Hinata ~ Money: $55, Points: 0
Hatake Kakashi ~ Money: $62, Points: 0
Hyperness ~ Money: $121, Points: 1
VirtualPlay ~ Money: $69, Points: 0
Heald ~ Money: $60, Points: 0
Bulbasaur4 ~ Money: $131, Points: 1
Roy Karrde ~ Money: $0, Points: 0
classy_cat18 ~ Money: $100, Points: 0
Weasel Overlord ~ Money: $18, Points: 1
Wolfsong ~ Money: $80, Points: 0
Darkfire ~ Money: $80, Points: 0

Money in Holding from Reffing

Interest Rate: The Current Interest Rate in Sotai is 15 Percent. The Current Future Outlook:Very Good

Edit: The Points may/will be split into a seperate topic in the future so the bank will probably only handle transactions of money soon.

[color=#990A66]Aaaaaaaand cut! That's a wrap! (that ended about 2 hours ago....>.>) Sign-ups are closed! We will announce the 6 members that will be joining the Beta Testing tomorrow.

We still ask all of you to observe, comment, and critique the systems as we all go through them over the next couple of weeks. We need as many thorough responces as possible, not only from those of us participating in the beta, but from outside observations as well.

Thanks so much for helping us get this awesome project off the ground!

Wild Pokemon Battle Topic

Welcome to the Wild Pokemon Battle Topic; this is the place you go if you wish to battle and capture a wild Pokemon. This topic will also be the place that your wild Pokemon battle will take place, as well as your sign up to battle the Pokemon. First off battles against wild Pokemon will be a bit different, such as in this one you will battle a ref who will control the Pokemon and ref the battles. The battles should only take a day or two and you can describe the battle in your RPG post. Finally only a few wild battles will go on at one time so you may have to wait your turn. With all that in mind, please use the official form below to request a battle and check on the statistics for what kind of Pokemon you have a chance of running into.

Pokemon Statistics
Common Pokemon: 45%
Uncommon Pokemon: 30%
Rare Pokemon: 20%
Very Rare Pokemon: 5%
Shiny Pokemon: 5%

Wild Pokemon Route
Wild Pokemon and Route Descriptions (http://www.freewebs.com/whiteeeveeangel/routesandwildpokemon.htm)
Rarity of those Pokemon (http://www.freewebs.com/whiteeeveeangel/pokemonrarity.htm)

Wild Battle Sign Up
Character Name: Name of your Character
Location: The Route you are located on
Pokemon: What Pokemon are in your team.

Pokeball Capture Rate
Pokeball (Capture Rate: 100% Capture at 10% health, 90% capture at 20% health, and so on)
Super Ball (Capture Rate: 100% Capture at 20% health, 90% capture at 30% health, and so on)
Great Ball (Capture Rate: 100% Capture at 30% health, 90% capture at 40% health, and so on)

Current Refs
Tsukasa, Roy Karrde, Weasel Overlord, Crystal Tears, Hyperness is a Good Thing, Tsuki Megami, Hatake Kakashi

If you wish to sign up for a Ref job, PM one of us. The more refs we have, the more spots we can open!

Q and A
Switching in mid battle: It is alright at this moment to switch Pokemon in mid battle and not have it count as a faint. Just be sure to state what is happening. It would also cost you one attack action just like throwing a Pokeball costs you one attack action

Running: You may run away at any time during battle but you will not be able to get another wild battle for 24 hours.

Switching Refs: If your ref is taking too long or just signed off, then you may feel free to request a new ref.

Pokemon Running: If you don't post in a few days after requesting a Wild Pokemon battle or don't post during the battle. Your ref can decide that your wild Pokemon has ran away.

Hyperness is a Good Thing
River
aragornbird

Congrats to the seven of them! Unfortunately, there was a tie in votes, so 7 were accepted instead of 6. The seven of them will be allowed to post in all of the ASBRPG topics once they are unlocked and started on Friday! They will all receive a PM congratulating them too, as well as providing them with any information they need to get started. As for the rest of you, we all hope that you keep an eye on the tests as well. As I said before, not only do we need the opinions of the participants, but responses and observations from other, non-involved members! Every comment and suggestion we can get will only better this project further!

Hope to hear from you all a lot in the next few weeks! ^__^

Welcome all to the Grand Market of the Sotai World! Here, you can purchase most any goods that can commonly be found in shops across the region.

The Legends of Sotai
Season 1 Beta.

The Small Continent of Sotai, small and out of the way from its neighbors of Kanto and Johto. The Continent of Sotai has been virtually unknown to the Pokemon world until the events of April 22nd. That day, one year ago, a powerful force known as the Crystal Syndicate made their presence known to the world with the destruction of Kinyou. The complete and utter decimation of the city sent shockwaves around the Pokemon world and all Sotai Pokemon events were placed on hold.

Now, one year later, on the morning of April 22nd, new trainers begin their journey all over Sotai as gyms reopen and the Sotai Pokemon league gears up for the first year after the horrible incident. Yet, even now, the darkness of the Crystal Syndicate continues to influence Sotai. They plan to stay for good and to cause even more trouble. Can this new generation of trainers conquer the Crystal Syndicate while on their journey to the Pokemon League? And what of the Shop Keepers, Miners, and other workers of Sotai? What will be their story? What will be your story? Only you can tell it.

[color=lightgreen]Congratulations for making it into the Beta version of the ASB RPG. If you have already signed up, then you are free to start your journey. Please consult the Trainers Guide for descriptions on what the Routes and cities look like. On the morning that you start your journey, your character will receive several things in the mail. The first being a Pokeball of your starter, you will also receive a Pokedex, $200 in money to spend at the store in your town, two empty pokeballs, and a Pokenav in which you will be able to contact any of your friends in the Pokemon World at any time. You will also be able to take along your Wild Starter Pokemon, which you would have caught at any time before the beginning of your journey, or it could be a house pet. Now please forgive us for the clutter, we are still trying to get things up and running. Hopefully everything, including the Trainer's Guide and the Gym Battle topic will be up and running by tonight.

Well I have kept you long enough and I know you wish to start on your journey, so good luck, and GO!

[color=lightblue]Your Name: Ryan Karrde
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Your Description: Ryan is easy to spot with light brown hair and deep rich blue eyes, he stands at a pretty impressive six foot, two and wears a deep blue short sleeve sweat shirt with a hood in the back. He carries along a gold pendent which is woven around black string. The pendent has the Japanese character for Strength and the characters for Ryan on it. Ryan has fair to light skin and almost no blemishes. He wears denim shorts and has a black belt going around it which holds his Pokeballs.
Your Personality: Ryan is a kind and almost free willed person. He will also help some one out and usually believes people. He doesn't get into fist fights much and tries to avoid violent arguments. He does enjoy Pokemon battles, but one day aspires to make a Circus act show of his own instead of just being a trainer.
City: Limtore
Pokemon: Tailow (F)
Captured Pokemon: Poliwag (F)
Friends: Is close friends with Kalah Byquest


[size=4][color=tan]Ryan Karrde
[color=tan]~*~*~*~*~ Psyched for his Adventure~*~*~*~*~

[color=tan]Shoes…check! Clothes…check! Poliwag’s Pokeball? Check! Alright everything seemed ready to go. My parents paced back and forth outside of my room as I took one last look around. The Pokemon representative would be here to drop off my package any minute. This would be the last time that I would get to see my room, my house, and my parents. For months, maybe even years. Yet this was my journey to start off on, I wanted not just to become a Pokemon trainer, but also to perform shows with my Pokemon. Maybe even participate in Pokemon contests when they start up.

Yet now was not the time to think of far off fantasies, each trainer had to take their first few steps, just like I was about to do. The doorbell rang downstairs to signal the dropping off of a package. The movement behind my door of my parent’s feet stopped only momentarily before picking up even more frantically. With giddy anticipation I slung my knapsack over my shoulders and raced out of the door to my room. Only briefly catching the glimpse of my parents from the corner of my eye as I raced downstairs.

There it was, the white box with the Pokeball symbol on the top of it and on the sides the official seal of the Sotai Pokemon League. With out a second thought, I ripped over the package with an uncontrollable fervor. Inside was a guide for the Sotai region, along with a Pokenav, a small package of money, two empty Pokeballs, and finally the one possession I had been waiting for, my own Pokemon.

“Pokemon Go!” I commanded tossing the ball out onto the living room floor. In a magical spectacle of light a Tailow emerged from the ball, the majestic bird Pokemon took a few flaps around the room before landing on the sofa. “Hello there, I’m Ryan.” I said slowly grabbing a few Pokemon pellets out of my bag and holding them in my outstretched hand. The Tailow looked at them for a brief second before pecking them out of my hand. “That tickles.” I smiled childishly before petting the bird.

In the mirror I could see my parents watching proudly as I returned Tailow to it’s Pokeball. I turned back toward them, my eyes brimming with tears. “I promise to write.” I promised giving them a short wave. Both of them came over and hugged me tightly before walking me to the door. “Goodbye!” Tears began to stream down my cheeks as I ran out the door, not wanting to turn around for fear that I would run back to them.

I had a big journey set out ahead of me, and first thing first, I had to visit Magne*Mart for some gear, and then it was off to the local gym for my first battle. These were the first steps on my journey that would take me all over the world of Sotai. Was I really ready to begin it?

NAME Grey.
GENDER Male.
AGE 17 years old.
APPEARANCE In a nutshell, this guy (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v732/mycatspice/Cooldude.jpg). Not pictured, Grey also sometimes wears a long black coat. He keeps his right arm hidden, unsleeved, however. Underneath his coat is a katana that he likes to use once in awhile, mostly to train and spar with his cubone, Exol'tai.
CHARACTER Calm and collected, Grey let's his actions do the talking for him most of the time. He's not, although, above the sarcastic response. This, most of the time, gets him in a lot of trouble with people. The kid is a bit soft spoken, and often, what he thinks of as "witty banter" is nothing more than unintelligible intellect that often flies over everyone's heads. Though he has an actual name, Grey had abandoned it long ago, calling it "nothing more than a burden".
HOMETOWN South Hyners.
STARTER Exol'tai, cubone male. Exol'tai, or "Tai" for short, is very disciplined. Sporting his mother's skull as a helmet, and her left leg bone as a sword, Tai can easily ward off any troubles that he and his teammate, Argonaut, may find along the way. Tai often spars with Grey using his mother's bone against Grey's blade. Tough and nimble, Tai is always eager to battle some new foes.
TEAMMATES Argonaut, stantler male. A tad bit older than Tai, Argonaut is a wise and graceful stantler. Though he knows a wide variety of attacks, Grey mainly uses him as transport. Argonaut doesn't mind it though, as he's just happy to tag along.
FRIENDS Non-existant at the moment.


Grey
The warm spring-time breeze kissed against my features; despite my eyes being closed, the sunny skies beamed through my eyelids letting me know that I was alive. Groggily, I opened my eyes and glanced around; I was presently laying underneath the shade of an old oak tree; Exol'tai, my scrappy cubone, laid peacefully on my stomache with his arms sprawled out haphazardly.

"Ey, up," I said to the mammal whilst poking him with my index finger, "Tai..."

Startled, the small cubone flailed about like a fish out of water for a few seconds before coming to his senses. Tai quickly stood up and grabbed his mother's bone, which had previously been lying on the grass nearby. Still groggy, I pulled myself up and glanced around whilst simultaneously pulling various leaves and grass blades from my long, un-tied hair (I'll get to that eventually). There was nothing to appease my interests, but my journey was beginning. A rush of excitement enveloped my senses as I grabbed my long cloak which had been draped around one of the tree branches.

I pulled the jacket from the tree limb and slid it across my back, only sleeving my left arm (keeping the right one hidden within). Most people would think it odd that I was wearing it this way. Hell, most people would think it odd that I was even wearing a jacket in the springtime, but that was of little concern to me. I grabbed the package that was delivered to me earlier in the day, bearing the crest of Sotai.

"C'mon, Tai," I said to the cubone, "we've got a journey to start."

"Cuu," the ground pokémon cried.

[font=franklin gothic medium][color=orange][b]
Your Name: Rain Taylor
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Your Description: Rain has very slim yet agile build. His skin is quite pale but has a light tan to it that gives it such a warm colour. He has a very small waist and all his physical strength shows itself in his chest and shoulders, which are quite broad and defined. His chest is the most defined part of his body, along with his torso that holds a well-treated six pack.
Wears an over sized black short-sleeved hoodie that has white chibi angel wings on the back. Under that is semi tight white t-shirt that drapes over his silver studded belt, which holds up his black jeans that go down to the middle of his shin. He has numerous spiked bracelets and what not on his wrists, and even has a choker collar (like what you see on a dog) around his neck.
Your Personality: Rain has a sarcastic tone about him, like he takes nothing seriously, but don't be fooled; he does. He quick-witted, funny, but can be slightly over confident, which is his flaw. He's also caring, which can also be a weakness, or a great strength.

^Rain^

Rain sighed; his father’s howling voice echoed into his ears as he sat in the complete darkness of his room. He was glad he was leaving, though, he felt a tinged of guilt abandoning his mother to this unkindly brute, Rain swore that he would return one day and make his father pay. As the bellowing from the other room seized, all he could hear was the painfully whimpering of his beaten mother, who had begged Rain to leave, before his father hurt him.

“He’s already hurt me…” Rain murmured, clutching the small parcel from the Pokemon League. He had just gotten it, daring to upset his father anymore he had ran out and got it, before sliding his door shut, and keeping completely silent. “He’s torn me apart, and now he’s doing the same to you…”

A soft scratching noise woke him from his real life nightmare; quietly he slinked over to the window and peered out. The trees were gently blowing in the mountain air, but that wasn’t what had made the scraping noise, Rain peered down over the window sill to see a large beast gently nudging against the side of his family’s hut. It made a soft grunting noise as its soft green eyes gazed up at its upset friend. Rain forced a smile onto his face.

“Is the coast clear?”

The massive beast; also known as a Rhyhorn, nodded its head. Rain quickly and quietly climbed out his room window, silently closing it behind him, he and his Rhyhorn fled behind a rather large cherry blossom tree. Smiling, Rain rubbed his hand over the surprisingly smooth rocky surface of Rhyhorn’s head.

“It’s alright.” He sighed, trying to reassure himself more then his Pokemon. “She’ll be fine…” He couldn’t fight back the tears; they silently dripped down his face onto Rhyhorn’s head, who nudged against Rain, signalling they had to leave. “She’ll be fine… Right Xion?”

The Rhyhorn looked away, motioning its head; it began to trot away, fallowed closely by Rain who has shoved all his new belongings into his pocket. Accept for one, when he thought he was far away enough, Rain sat down on the cool grass.

“What do you think it is?”

Rhyhorn grunted, gesturing towards the forest, Rain smirked.

“A bug?”

Xion nodded, and in a flash of white light, a Pokemon took form. It has huge red eyes, antennas, and a purple furry body that covered nearly everything expect its pincer mouth, small hands, and feet. Rain raised and eyebrow and looked over at Xion.

“Guess you were right.”

A low noise emitted from Xion’s mouth as the Pokemon; actually a Venonat looked over at its companions.

“Hi.” Rain said simply.

A soft whistling noise emitted from his tiny mouth, before it pounced on Rain, causing him to fall backwards. He looked at the bug Pokemon clinging to him madly before he rose up again, causing it to sit next to him.

“Well…” Rain smiled. “I name all my Pokemon, and I’ve heard Venonats like Dusk. So, would like to be called Dusk?”

Venonat nodded, captured by a red beam Venonat phased inside its pokeball, Rain sighed, seeing his Rhyhorn laying on the green grass, quietly much on some, he moved over, laying his head on the smooth part of Rhyhorn’s side, he exhaled deeply, enjoying the simple breeze blowing across his face.

“I’ll come back for you mom… Promise…”

Your Name: Laura Deirdre
Gender: Female
Age: 16
Your Description: In general, Laura is a "cute" young woman in appearance, yet her personal view of herself says differently. At a rather short height of barely around 5 feet and 1 inch, Laura's eyes are a soft hazel color, a mix of green and golden brown, her hair deep, dark brown in color with a natural straightness, thickness, and normally kept at about shoulder length. Despite constant attempts to keep herself in a healthy condition, her build is actually fairly curved, with muscles that are at least visible, yet soft, and a natural belly. Her skin is also fairly pale, with a natural tan from heritage.
Her clothing would describe her as a person with a clear interest in some music. Underneath a dark grey jacket from a university, she wears a System of a Down band shirt featuring all four members as hands on a slightly distorted clock with the band's name to the side, jeans with a slight teal color to it, and black and grey sneakers of the Vans brand.
Your Personality: Laura, despite being of a kind heart and of a mixed creative and analytical mind, is mainly depressed due to some issues that have occured in her past. Having to have moved a lot, she has had many issues adjusting to change, and even coming to Limtore has worsened it socially with all the generally "punks" and "emo kids," as if she's never fit in with either. However, she seems to be clingy onto the one person she loves, yet is trying to change it before their relationship becomes another turmoil in her life.
City: Limtore (it's a trend I might have started before I posted...!)
Pokemon: Kimmi (female Snorunt)
Captured Pokemon: Ric Flair (male Shroomish)
Friends: Well, if it counts, her boyfriend is Michael/Mike Silvern.


Laura Deirdre
On this day its so real to me
Everything has come to life
Another chance to chase a dream
Another chance to feel
Chance to feel alive

A sense of anxiousness crossed my face as I glanced into the mirror in the hallway, causing me to instinctively relocate my thin-framed glasses into a perfect position. I was leaving today for my journey across this continent of Sotai which I had moved to only less than a year before the incidents that had happened a year ago today. It was an odd feeling, really, as if a sense of justice was flowing about me only because of this Crystal Syndicate, who seemed more major than the "evil" Team Rocket of my homeland in Kanto. Giovanni seemed to be nothing like the leader of this team. I mean, did he ever plot to use terrorism to make the "government" surrender?

Sighing, I focused back into my personal life. Today, I would receive my actual first Pokémon aside from my pet, a Shroomish dubbed Ric Flair. Actually, I didn't name him; it was all my grandfather's idea because of the fact this mentally "different" Shroomish would randomly shout just as his namesake did. As scary as it was to admit, I actually sort of did like wrestling, despite all the drama incorporated nowandays. I still wished my aunt was here to say goodbye, however. She was busy managing the small family business selling objects such as books, stones, and incense...all related to the metaphysical world. Perhaps someday when I returned, I'd settle down with Michael, my love and only real friend, and manage this store.

Suddenly, the doorbell rang, instantly bringing me into reality. Inhaling deeply, I exhaled as I quietly walked towards the door, and opened it. The delivery man decided to have just left; probably due to the many children expected to start out on their journey today from my current residence, the city of Limtore. The package was basically what my old Anatomy and Physiology Honors teacher would immediately call a rectangular prism; however, on its top "face" was a symbol resembling a PokéBall, and the seal of the Sotai Pokémon League on each remaining side. Smiling weakly, I brought the parcel inside and sat on the couch, quietly and gently opening it.

I gasped lightly as I fumbled through its contents. A guide to the region, a PokéNav, small package of money, two empty PokéBalls, and one that was somehow customized. On it was the kanji symbol for ice, dark blue in color, which contrasted greatly from the ice blue of the orb. Wondering which Pokémon was inside, I quietly pressed its button, causing the ball to enlarge. Carefully, I tossed the ball onto the carpet, causing it to open and reveal a small triangular shape. The light faded, revealing among the cutest Pokémon I could think of, a Snorunt.

"Sno!" The feminine creature chirped, shyly walking over towards me. A smile gently crossed my face, as I stood and picked her up.

"Hello to you, too, Kimmi." I spoke, hugging her close to me. I didn't mind the cold aura that surrounded the two of us almost suddenly. I always admired the winter season, which caused me to like Pokémon of the ice element greatly. Placing her on the ground, I recalled her into her PokéBall and slipped it into my pocket along with the one containing Ric. I didn't feel so bad anymore, and couldn't wait to see Michael now. Gathering my black messenger bag and reassuring I had everything, I tied the dark grey jacket around my waist and quietly walked out the door. Today was definitely going to begin a new life for me.

Hyperness is a Good Thing

Your Name: Cearo Mitsu Gin
Gender: Female
Age: 17
Your Description: Cearo is about 5”8 in height, with shoulder length black hair streaked with dark and light purple. She has three piercings on her left ear and two on her right, and she always wears a silver necklace with a golden star pendant. Her features are rather oriental, due to her Eurasian lineage and her irises are deep violet but they lighten to lilac occasionally. Cearo’s skin remains pale even though she goes out into the sun so much. Her clothes consist of a pale blue baby T-shirt with the words “I got this for my boyfriend. Good trade, right?” emblazoned on the front in bold red letters(she just starts off with these clothes, she’ll have to change them eventually), and long black jeans that flare a little near the bottom. Her backpack is black and big with little badges of Jack Skellington all over it(her ideal man), and her earrings are often little silver skulls.
Your Personality: Cearo is very confident, and she is able to brush off most criticism and negative comments easily. She’s quick to speak, but unfortunately, doesn’t always think before she talks. When she thinks about it, she can be quite nice, but her mood swings are quite terrible. As a friend, she isn’t too bad, and is pretty loyal but she can flare up easily. She also gets irritated if the people around her misunderstand what she’s saying as she likes to talk very fast. She could be considered quite intelligent, but she jumps to conclusions too easily and quickly. As a trainer, she tends to make careless mistakes a lot, but she always learns from them. She cares very much for those who are important to her, including her Pokemon.
City: Diruntha
Pokemon: Raizen(m) - Electrike
Captured Pokemon: Cary(f) - Houndour
Friends: Rain Taylor! ^_^ edit - Arělys Tyrnea’rae even though WO spelt Cearo's name wrongly! Lol.
(all from the same hometown I guess? heh)And she doesn't mind making other friends too. =)

[color=#00ff99]Cearo Mitsu Gin – F

She woke up and blinked, her hands clutching her blanket tightly. Cary was still snoozing peacefully at her feet, but the little Houndour jerked awake with a start, and gazed quizzically at Cearo. Cearo grabbed the little fire Pokemon, gave her a big hug(which Cary responded to by licking her face all over), and stretched.

Today was the day. Trembling visibly with excitement, she got out of bed slowly, went to the toilet, in other words, followed her normal daily routine, pulled on a shirt that was on top of the clean shirts pile, randomly selected a pair of jeans to go with it and went downstairs.

Her parents were already awake and eating breakfast. Somehow she could see that both of them were tense. Her father’s forehead was wrinkled beneath his mop of blonde hair, and her mother, though her face looked calm, her hands were wringing a towel over and over again repeatedly.

“Now you look here, Cearo –” her father began, clearing his throat over and over again. Cearo sighed.

“I’ll be fine dad,” she said, reaching out her hand and placing it gently on his arm.

“She said those exact same words to me, a few years back,” Cearo’s father said, his gaze, somewhat sad.

Cearo did not need to ask who was he referring to. Ever since her parents had disowned their elder daughter, Kimi, they had never mentioned her name in Cearo’s hearing ever again.

“Something came for you in the mail this morning, dear,” her mother said. “It’s on the table outside in the living room.”

“Well I guess I’ll be leaving now!” Cearo said, inserting false cheerfulness into her voice.
She kissed her father and mother farewell, grabbed the parcel wrapped with brown paper that was on the coffee-table, slung on her backpack, and was out of the door, faithful Cary at her heels.

She ran and ran, enjoying the feeling of the breeze streaming through her long hair. She saw what looked like a huge lump of rock in the distance, and recognised it as Xion. Smiling, she made her way forward, and dropped down beside Rain, throwing her backpack carelessly aside. Cary moved over to near Xion’s head to say “Hi.”

“Morning Rain!” Cearo said, and saw his glum face. “Why are you looking so down for?” However, she didn’t need to ask, she already knew. Putting her right arm over his shoulder, she said, “Don’t worry! One day, I’ll come back with you, and I’ll help you get her out of that mess!”

He smiled, a bit weakly, but it was a genuine smile.

“Thanks,” he said.

She realised that she was still holding the brown parcel in her left hand. “I wonder what’s in this!”

“You didn’t even open it?”

“Nah, was afraid that Dad’ll give me another long lecture about not becoming like Kimi,” she replied.

“Oh.” His answer was short and brief, and Rain shook his head.

She tore it open quickly, and several things fell into her lap. She grabbed at one of the items with a happy squeal that made Cary and Xion wince.

“I wonder what’s in this?” She pressed the release button, and a dazzle of light, a little green Pokemon with yellow markings appeared. “An Electrike!” she said, happy. “Yes! An electric Pokemon! Woohoo!”

The Electrike gazed at its new trainer, looking slightly confused. “I’ll call you Raizen!” she said. He titled on head to the side and suddenly, crawled forward to snuggle on her lap. Cary, watching from Xion’s front end, growled softly. “Aww, don’t be jealous, Cary!” Cearo said, and motioned the puppy over. She started petting the Houndour who growled softly in pleasure.

Rain watched quietly, but suddenly spoke. “I wonder where’s Arělys,” he said, leaning his head backwards on Xion.

Your Name: River Eytheranea
Gender: ♀
Age: 18
Your Description: She stands at about 5'7, maybe a little taller. She is of a medium build, and tanned from being outside most of the time. She is rather strong from working on her family's farm all her life, dealing with rowdy farm Pokémon (like Rapidash, Miltank . . . and such). She has brown curly hair that goes a little past her shoulders. It is often up in a ponytail as it is constantly blowing in face and she hates all the tangles it gets in it. Her eyes are a light brown when she is happy and dark when she is not (be that anger or sadness).
She often wears blue jeans and a light purple t-shirt, or a navy blue t-shirt with the words, [font=script]"without music, life would be a mistake.” She has a white and blue spring jacket tied around her waist for when it rains, but the zipper is broken. Her backpack is light blue and black and says 'Jaguar' on the front. She also has black oval sunglasses, white socks and blue and white sneakers. Her Ponyta and Horsea, Cimmy and Aysu, are kept on a necklace around her neck. She also keep a light blue zip-up hoodie in her backpack, along with a Dizi flute.
Your Personality: She is rather shy, and at least around people she does not know she doesn’t say very much at all. She watches them for a good while before deciding to venture any opinion. She is kind, but because she is shy she generally keeps her head down, unless the person really needs some help, or asks for a hand. She in not exactly introspective, but she can go an entire day with saying almost nothing and be perfectly happy. Around her friends her personality totally shifts. She can be hyper and always up for some fun (so long as it is legal . . .). She is one of those people who walk down the street with their head up, not involved with their own thoughts, and is generally happy most of the time. It is a rare day when you see her upset or angry.
Speaking of which, when she is upset she generally keeps it to herself, and telling people what is wrong has to be forced out of her. It is VERY hard to get her seriously angry, but when she is her voice has no emotion as she is trying, desperately, not to say something she will regret later, and have control over herself. She hates violence (you know the pissed off kind . . .) And thinks people who ‘loose it’ like that need to grow up and get control of themselves.
City: North Hyners
Pokemon: Ponyta ♂ Cimmeron (Cimmy or Cim for short)
Captured Pokemon: Horsea ♀ Aysu
Friends: Arělys Tyrnea’rae


[color=#0066ff][font=monotype corsiva]-~:*River Eytheranea*:~-
→North Hyners←

[font=monotype corsiva][size=3] "Hey, hey! Cut it out! Suvi!" River said, jumping in front of the Tropius as she was rising up to Stomp the Miltank. The Miltank, by the name of Maha, didn't look none to pleased either and looked ready to Tackle Suvi.. When River jumped in between them, Suvi franticly flapped her wings, slowing her fall so she just missed landing on River. Maha stopped tensing her muscles but still pawed the ground, looking furious. River held out her hands, blocking the two Pokémons view of each other, and frowned at both of them. "Suvi, go back to your forest." Suvi whined and growled slightly. River tilted her head down slightly, "NOW."

Suvi grumbled and buzzed her wings a bit before flying off to the Tropius paddock, one full of tall trees and a small pond. River turned to Maha and shook her finger at her, putting her voice in an admonishing tone, "Maha leave her alone. That fruit is not for you, and attacking her children is NOT going to get you some. They come loose at HER will, not yours." Maha snorted, making tossing her head and pawing before shaking her head. "Yes I meant attacking Maha, that is what you are doing, you are hurting her young. Now if you keep this up we will sell you, trade you, whatever. And I don't think anybody will care who gets you, not with the way you treat your fellow Pokémon." Maha widened her eyes, she very well knew she was past her prime, battling will likely lead her to an unfortunate end. The only reason she was here was her old (rich) trainer wanted her to retire in style, and Maha had been spoiled rotten.

Maha glared at River, but then sighed and retreated to the herd. The others sighed, crisis averted. River watched her until she went back to grazing, and then left, hopping the fence. She hopped onto one of family's Tauros, who was looking interestingly at the Miltank. She smacked him lightly on the head. "No funny business. Let's go."

He snorted and turned away, running toward the house. River sighed, it was only 7am and already there was trouble, she loved the farm, but she was glad she was getting away from all the infighting. Not to mention (in her opinion) very dumb war with their sister city South Hyners. She left the Tauros at his paddock, which nearest the house and where the Meganium usually was as they liked to break things in their running. She saw her mom at the door, looking happy but tears were in her eyes. Evidently her package had arrived. She walked up and before she could say anything her mom said, "its upstairs in your room."

River smiled but rushed past her mom and upstairs to her room. It was just sitting on her bed. "Yes!" she cried and rushed over to it. She tore it open, and there it all was, the Pokéballs, cash, Pokédex and Nav and all important, her starter. She packed all her new stuff in, and grabbed her bag, then turned to her Horsea, Aysu. She was currently in her tank of water looking just as happy to finally start on their journey. She took out her Pokéball and returned her, clicking her onto her double Pokéball necklace. She clicked the other one on as well, wanting to wait until she was out of view of her family to introduce herself. No need to confuse the new one.

She trotted down the stairs and saw her family waiting just outside. She hugged them both, they both looked happy, but there was a bit of sadness there as well. That she would not be continuing the family business.
"Have fun, and don't forget to phone us once in a while. The last year has been, interesting, and we want to know your safe." said her Dad, frowning.

River's eyes darkened, she knew all about what he was talking about. The Crystal Syndicate had sprung up out of nowhere, and they had been lucky that they had decided to come in through the Southern most town instead of the North. "I will, don't you worry none."

Her mom just smiled and hugged her again, "I'll miss you, and remember, and it is always ok to run away." River smirked and nodded, to make her mom feel better. She turned and with a last wave she walked away. She heard her Dad murmur something and a second later the door shut on the farm door. River smiled, and broke into a jog, eager to get to the nearest route.

She made a quick stop in the small branch of the National Bank of Sotai, she didn't want to be carrying around her money. She didn't like to carry any amount in her pocket, only getting some when she needed it.

After that brief hold-up she was out onto Route 255. She enjoyed the mountainous views she was heading toward, giddy that she was finally free to wander wherever she wanted. She stopped when she had gotten out of sight of the city. She enlarged her starter's Pokéball and tossed it. The Ponyta flooded out and the white light quickly formed into a very small Ponyta, only 3'3 at the shoulder, for now. River went onto her knees, dropping her eyes and held out her hand, "Heya little guy, how are you?"

The Ponyta cautiously stepped forward and sniffed her hand. River looked up and smiled. The Ponyta tossed his head playfully. River laughed and patted his neck, getting to her feet. "I think I'll call you Cimmeron, good by you?"

The Ponyta thought for bit before nodding vigorously. River laughed again before she said, "Well let's look for some friends to catch shall we?"

Hmm ok I'm battling a Snubble here (http://www.pokemasters.net/forums/index.php?topic=44008.msg636637#msg636637) (thought it would make sense to include the link), and I believe I post here what I want to do (if I understood the above paragraphs right). Well I'm going to be using my ♂ Ponyta, Cimmeron. Seeing as how my Horsea can't really be used on this route . . .

Ok Cimmy, first off try to put it to sleep with a [color=#ff00ff]Hypnosis. Then if its asleep, use a Sunny Day followed up by a Solarbeam. If its not asleep, use Double Team, followed by Flamethrower.

River Eytheranea vs. [color=pink]Snubble, [color=#bc8f8f]Round One!

[COLOR=#bc8f8f] Arena – On the side of a Dry dusty road, mountains fill the background horizon.

[CENTER][COLOR=blue]Let Round One Begin!

Sandstorms and dust kicks up around the roadside as this new trainer stands off against her first wild Pokemon encounter since becoming a trainer. Picking quickly as the Snubble glares at her, she chooses her trusty new Pokemon: Cimmeron, the Ponyta. Cimmeron paws the ground slowly with his hoof as Snubble goes all out with a Take down. The small dog Pokemon rushes up, slamming into the horse full force. Cimmeron returns a glare toward Snubble for the sudden attack, his eyes begin to glow a eerie light blue, the same blue color fills Snubble’s eyes as it begins to dip over from exhaustion.

Snubble continues to fight the exaustion, ever few seconds it’s head dips over as if she were about to fall over, and then snaps out of it and wakes up for only a few more seconds. Not wanting to waste a perfect opportunity, River calls out for Cimmeron to use Sunny Day. Her new Pokemon responds by igniting the flames on it’s back, these flames seem to intensify the already hot heat in the area, while the small cirrus clouds in the sky quickly burn off allowing for the sun to beat down upon the roadside. The heat doesn’t help Snubble’s already exhausted state and it collapses upon the ground.

Eyeing the now completely asleep Snubble, River wipes the sweat from her brow and calls out for Cimmeron to use Solar Beam. Flames lick around Cimmeron’s skin as it draws energy into its mouth from the sun and the crackling heated atmosphere in the area. Rearing back Cimmeron releases the Solar Beam with full force; the beam leaps from Cimmeron’s mouth and flashes across the roadside, striking the sleeping Snubble straight on. Snubble flys into the air from the attack and falls in a crumpled heap against the road, the small Pokemon suddenly awakened from it’s slumber, yet still quiet drowsy.

I casually strolled along the pathway, not bothering to really pay any attention. Tai had been following suit, whilst Argonaut had been resting in his black-colored poké ball (I paint them that color; it's more unique that way). My long coat had been flailing in the wind behind me, looking like a super hero cape.

"Zigzagoon!" barked the small hound.

"Zigzagoon," I mused aloud. I had no interest in catching any pokémon today, but the battle experience would be prime. "Tai, you ready?"

The tiny cubone gripped onto his mother's bone apprehensively, "Cuu!"

"Alright then. Start off by using Focus Energy to keep your mind at ease. Then follow up with a Bone Club! Finally, use Ancientpower!"

Exol'tai nodded in acknowledgement before adjusting his skull cap; eager to battle, he glares menacingly at his foe.

Now Cimmy that was a great job, but we don't want to kill it, but if we do oh well, you do gain experience. Anyway, I want you to use a Flamethrower and then a, well, try Quick Attack. You may avoid getting hit, and it isn't super hurtful either. Lastly Relax, well see what level of HP it is at.

River Eytheranea vs. [color=pink]Snubble, [color=#bc8f8f]Round Two!

[COLOR=#bc8f8f] Arena – On the side of a Dry dusty road, mountains fill the background horizon.

[CENTER][COLOR=blue]Let Round Two Begin!

The raging heat of this mid spring day continues as River calls out her next attack. Cimmeron bays in acknowledgement as the flames on his back roar up again. The Snubble begins to shake her head to try and swat the stars away from her dreamy haze, all the while Cimmeron lunges forward and releases a wild Flamethrower from it’s mouth. The flames quickly race across the area between the two Pokemon, turning the ground into a hellish blaze only for a few seconds before the Snubble is hit straight on with the powerful Flamethrower.

The flames quickly die down and the Snubble glares, it had prepared itself for the flames, yet wasn’t fully awake enough to prepare a counter attack. Yet now she seems to fully have awakened from its slumber. River decides that she doesn’t want the Snubble to faint if possible and asks her Cimmeron to prepare for a Quick Attack. The Ponyta nods and races forward, kicking up dirt and rocks in his wake as he races across the battlefield. The Snubble stands firm and waits for Cimmeron to reach striking distances. Cimmeron races past Snubble striking her with his quick attack in amazing speed. Snubble, in her anger to retaliate for all the pain she is in, spins around and strikes Cimmeron with a glowing fist as she delivers a Mega Punch straight into Cimmeron’s side.

Cimmeron falls over from the mega punch, yet this seems to play straight into River’s plan as she orders Cimmeron to relax and take it easy so that they can check Snubble’s health. Snubble, still enraged in the battle, races forward and delivers a tackle into Cimmeron’s side which sends the Pokemon skidding backwards only a bit.

River Eytheranea vs. [color=pink]Snubble, [color=#bc8f8f]Round Three!

[COLOR=#bc8f8f] Arena – On the side of a Dry dusty road, mountains fill the background horizon.

[CENTER][COLOR=blue]Let Round Three Begin!

Both Pokemon continued as we reach Round three of this heated battle. Cimmeron slowly rises to his feet on shaky legs as Snubble begins to grumble, preparing for her next attack. River waits for it to happen, and it only takes a second for the dog Pokemon to strike. The small Pokemon leaps forward with black energy crackling in her jaw. Cimmeron rears back in fear as Snubble leaps forward and clamps down on Cimmeron’s back leg, the Crunch attack ripping into Cimmeron’s leg and tearing at the flesh. Cimmeron begins to cry out as River orders a Flamethrower attack. More than happy to hurt Snubble back, Cimmeron leans forward and delivers a torrent of flames straight into the face of the Snubble at close range.

Faced with the choice of continuing to clamp down and endure the flames or to let go, Snubble quickly decided to choose the safer route and let go, allowing the flames to carry it backwards for a few feet. Cimmeron quickly begins to hobble around with his hurt leg. Not wanting to waste the opportunity, River orders a tackle attack. Snubble seems to have the same idea as both Pokemon rush forward, each tired and in pain and meet each other head on.

Both Pokemon go flying backwards, Cimmeron landing on his side while Snubble flying onto her back. Cimmeron slowly rises to his feet and turns to River, waiting faithfully for her next command. Meanwhile Snubble turns over on her side slowly, struggling just to make it to her feet. Deciding that this is the best time, River tosses out her Pokeball, which opens and envelops Snubble in a flash of light. The Pokeball lands and tosses about three times before finally coming to rest. River has captured Snubble!

^Rain^

A low grumbling noise and then the shifting of Rain’s rock pillow made him pay attention. Looking over at his Rhyhorn, Rain frowned; Xion impatiently nuzzled against his arm, and then began to shove.

“Alright Alright…” Rain sighed, getting to his feet. “Listen Cearo, I need to go on a walk before Xion decides to use me as a place-mat.”

“Xion. Would you actually do that?”

An uncomforting nod from the Rhyhorn made Rain shake his head before he headed out. “We’ll be back soon; you can come along if you like.”

“What route are you going to be on?!”

“260….” He laughed, as he pointed to the very sign mere feet from him that bared the routes name. Smiling he headed forward.

It was a rocky path, sand, and dirt swirled around in the breeze, a small amount of plants, mostly only small tuffs of grass that had somehow managed to live on this mountain trail. Sighing, Rain wandered over to a rock and sat down, resting his face in his hands, the heat was beginning to get to him, though he had wandered down this trail many times before, he peered out of his hands to see Rhyhorn sniffing the ground a bit.

“What’s up?”

A low grunting noise, fallowed by more sniffing; Rain recognized this, he had found the scent of a pokemon, he smiled, walking over to his Pokemon.

“Where’s it lead?”

Rhyhorn motion his head forwards, a large rock blocked whatever was behind it from view, but Rain wasn’t exactly known for his intelligence in these matters. Cautiously, with Xion directly behind him, he peered behind the rock.

Here we go! Welcome to the Wild Pokemon Battle topic, drew!


[color=#990A66][color=teal]Grey vs. Zigzagoon
BEGIN!
Round One!

Area: Route 253, just outside of South Hyners. With the city behind you and the rolling hills before you, its a beautful scene with lush grass, scattered trees and small boulders and stones scattered here and there. A few clouds are scatter high in the sky, enough to shade the sun every now and then.

Tai and the wild Zigzagoon stare each other down as they slowly circle each other through the lush grass. As they cautiously approach the peak of a nearby hill, a strong aura begins to surround Tai as Grey commands for him Focus his Energy. As he does such, the his opponent releases a low grumble and, in a swift kick-turn, flings a Sand Attack towards the concentrating Cubone. The shot tosses some of the fertile soil into Tai helmet and eyes, blinding him slightly.

Somewhat frustrated with the dirtying of it's mother's precious skull, Tai centers his focused energy onto the femor of his deceased parent. "Follow it up with a Bone Club." Grey shouts a command to Tai. In a twinge of anger, he hurls himself forward, slamming the bone down on the Zigzagoon's head. Letting out a cry of pain, the small rodent recoils from the impact and makes a run for it, as if she were trying to escape! Tai begins to clean out his eyes and skull helm, but while he does, the Zigzagoon does an about-face and charges back towards the Cubone. Lowering her head, she collides with Tai's stomache in a powerful Headbutt, which sends the orphaned Pokemon skidding across the terrain.

Getting frustrated with this wild ferret, Tai stands himself back up, a dim anger overtaking his eyes. Raising his sword-like bone above his head, he swings it downward, bludgeoning the ground with the tip. The ground rumbles as several large stones levitate out of newly broken crags in the hillside. Ritualistically waving his club in the air, Tai sends the many rocks over the landscape to strike the Zigzagoon. While the first one or two are dodged, the next series hits their target, and hard! Almost encased in a prison of stone, it seems as though the beast is trapped, but suddenly, movement can be seen between through the cracks. Tai cautiously approaches the pile and knocks them over, prepared for a surprise attack, yet, all that can be seen inside is a mound of dirt. Realizing the Pokemon has Dug underground, the Cubone carefully eyes the ground, waiting for Grey's next command.

Rain Taylor vs. [color=pink]Gastly, [color=#bc8f8f]Round One!

[COLOR=#bc8f8f] Arena – In a desert landscape, little vegetation around, the temperature near 100 Degrees Fahrenheit
[CENTER][COLOR=blue]Let Round One Begin!

The arid landscape of the harsh desert is not usually the sight of Pokemon battles, mostly because Route 260 is somewhat less traveled due to the intense heat that the route is scorched with for most of the year. For Rain this would be the place for his first battle. Rain’s Rhyhorn named Xion pawed at the ground, anxious to battle the Gastly that floated around the rock. The Gastly decided to strike first, charging up a semisolid ball full of dark energy. Rain quickly recognized the attack as Shadow Ball and ordered Xion to use Double Team. The image of the Rhyhorn began to waver and then split as six Rhyhorn appeared from the original image and encircled Gastly. With the Shadow Ball already charged, Gastly had no choice but to release it. The ball full of dark matter, spun uncontrollably toward one of the images. The ball made contact and enveloped two of the images in a flash of dark neon light. When the light dimmed the only thing left was a patch of scorched Earth.

Relieved that the attack didn’t hit Rhyhorn, Rain decided to take the initiative and go on the attack. With the order of a Ice beam, her Rhyhorn rears it’s head back with it’s mouth gaping open, blue light begins to filter into his mouth as what feels like a cold chill rushes past everyone. The Gastly, now down to four choices, runs at the next one with its tongue open wide for a lick attack. Rhyhorn on the other hand waits for the best moment that the beam will deal the most amount of damage and releases the brilliant blue beam of ice, right as Gastly is just inches away. The ghost Pokemon falls to the ground chilled and covered in tiny ice crystals.

Confident now in his good luck, and having the ghost Pokemon right where he wants him. Rain orders a Crunch attack from Xion. The Pokemon is quite happy to oblige as he opens his maw and chews through the ice and deep into the ghost Pokemon’s body. Gastly lets out a shriek of pain as Rhyhorn chews in and through the very little amount of skin and muscle that the Pokemon has. In furious anger the Pokemon responds by lashing out with a jet of darkness as thick and black as the night sky. Rhyhorn flys backwards in pain as the Night Shade beam carries him several feet back before finally landing. Staggering up from the attack, Rhyhorn awaits his trainer’s next move.

[color=teal]Grey vs. Zigzagoon
BEGIN!
Round Two!

Area: Route 253, just outside of South Hyners. With the city behind you and the rolling hills before you, its a beautful scene with lush grass, scattered trees and small boulders and stones scattered here and there. A few clouds are scatter high in the sky, enough to shade the sun every now and then.

"Well done, Tai." Grey calls out, encouraging the precautious Cubone. He continues to watch the ground with an ever-moving eye. "Now that she's underground, make her miserable with a powerful Earthquake!" Nodding in agreement, Tai wipes at his eyes to clear the dirt from them again and prepares for the attack. Jumping into the air, he raises the bone above his head, only to slam it into the earth below as he stops his feet down into the grass as well. A vigorous rumbling slowly spreads around Tai, like ripples from a raindrop.

Meanwhile, underground, the Zigzagoon continues to burrow as her mission to pull an earthy surprise attack is suddenly foiled. Not expecting an Earthquake to occur during her attack, she starts digging upward, in an attempt to escape the close and perilous confines of her tunnel. Unfortunately, she cannot scurry through the soil fast enough to emerge before the tremors cause her to lose balance and be crushed by the collapsing pathway. The avalanche of dirt and rocks surrounds her, crushing her small figure.

Back above ground, Tai collapses himself after executing such a powerful move. Taking a breather, her still scans the area, waiting for the Zigzagoon to surface. It wasn't long before this happened, but not in the form of an attack as she had planned. The ferret merely used the rest of her burrowing energy to get back above the horizon. With his short rest over, Tai returns to his feet and begins concentrating his energy again. In a last ditch effort to defend her pride, the injured and weak ferret turns her back to the Cubone and huddles over, firing off multiple barrages of quill-like missiles. As they fly through the air, a spinning bone does as well in a spiraling Bonemerang thrown by Tai. The first wave of pins pierces his arm as the whirling attack smacks the Zigzagoon off her feet. The second wave prickles Tai in the stomache, causing her to lose concentration on the direction of her boomerang. A third wave approaches the Cubone, but is parried by the club as it returns to its owner.

With his weapon returned and back in a battle stance, all that can be seen are the small clouds of dirt left behind by the fleeing Pokemon. Even WILD Pokemon know when they are defeated.

[color=#990A66]Your Name: Yoi Kataki (Japanese order)
Gender: Female
Age: 15
Your Description: See the image attached below for her general appearance. Kataki is around 5'6" and can almost always been seen in dark colors as seen in the pic. She also wears a black choker with a silver triquetra hanging from it and the silver bracelet she wears on her right wrist is a charm bracelet, both objects she received from late mother. The dark leather belt that holds her skirt up is where she carries her Pokeballs. For her other supplies and items, she carries an average-sized, silver cargo backpack decorated with various charms, symbols, and markings, many of which she drew or attached herself. Inside are some extra clothes, rations, and hygiene products, as well as recovery items and spare Pokeballs.
Your Personality: Ambitious and brimming with fiery energy, Kataki is an over-enthusiastic girl out for revenge on the Crystal Syndicate. She's quite the passionate person, seeing through anything she starts with a smile on her face, even if it s a snide grin or a maniacal smirk. Some may call her rude, but its usually because she's in a hurry to complete her newest goal. If you can keep up with her, you can be sure she'll accept you as a friend, but otherwise, she might think of you as more of a hindrance.
City: Kinyou
Pokemon: Jishin (Male Sandshrew)
Captured Pokemon: Kusabana (Female Oddish)
Friends: None, currently...


[size=7][color=blue][font=dreamscar]- Yoi Kataki -
[size=5]Leaving Home

[color=#990A66]The bright sun made itself known through the thin material of my tent. I could feel the heat starting to rise as the canvas-like covering held in the heat in a greenhouse effect. “Another restless night...” I sighed, rolling out of the cheap cot I called a bed. “How about you? Did you sleep well, Kusa?”

“Ooodd!” the small Oddish cried out as she rustled the five large leaves sprouting from her head in a happy. Pulling a small package with Pokemon food inside out of my bag, I dropped a handful of pieces on the ground next to her. We had to ration our food well because there was little available in the area.

“Well, I’m glad at least you did,” I said, walking to the small basin in the back corner. It didn’t take much for me to get ready in the morning since I wore my clothes to bed. As a matter of fact, many of the civilians here did, in case of an emergency evacuation because of the Crystal Syndicate. Running a cheap brush through my hair, brushing my teeth, and splashing some water across my face was about as complex as it got.

Drying myself off with a coarse hand towel, I tossed it aside as I headed towards the tent flap. The cloth darted through the air, landing on top of and covering a small frame. I let out a small gasp and swiftly removed it. I whispered to myself, “I could never leave that there.” Peeling back the towel and pitching it into the basin, it revealed the only physical memory I had of my parents. “Silver will pay for what he’s done, if only just for you two.” I growled under my breath, a single tear rolling down my cheek. Kusabana gave out a mournful sigh and nuzzled up again my left leg. “You and I will make him pay, right, Kusa?” I questioned her, rearranging some of the mussed foliage on her head. Giving a determined grunt, she let out a cute cry of fortitude and I clenched my fist in agreement.

A boisterous voice suddenly pierced my ears, as well as the others around camp. “Mail Call! Letters AND packages!” hailed the courier who brought all the parcels to the camp every few weeks. “I’ve got deliveries for: Deana Lynch... Jasper Kaldes...” The man continued to rattle off names as the crowds of people hollered, shoved, and reached for their possessions; never a pretty sight. I continued to tidy up what little space I had until he departed, considering I never received mail, and why should I? I had no family left; it was just Kusabana and I...

Then, a familiar name over powered the white noise of the crowd. “Kataki Yoi.” He shouted. The sound of my name being called by that man was such a shock to me that I couldn’t believe it and pushed it from my mind. “Yoi! Kataki Yoi!” There it was again. My entire body was stricken with both alarm and fear. Quickly I flung the tent flap open and ran out to the crown. “Is there a Ka-” he started, but got cut off by my flailing.

“Over here!” I shouted, frantically waving my arms in the air, “I’m over here!”

“Here you are, ma’am.” He hollered back, slinging the white package over the crowd, straight into my hands. It didn’t take long before the one of the camp’s bums approached me.

“You sure that name is right? I think that’s MY package” He spoke through a gruff, smoker’s voice. Lashing out, he quickly wrapped his arms around the parcel, yanking and pulling at it as I fought to keep my grip on it as well.

“Get off me, you filthy ogre!” I snarled, giving him a sharp and powerful thrust to the stomach with my foot. Releasing my package, he stumbled backwards, falling onto his rear end. I held out the white box and pointed to the front, explaining, “This is my package! See, my name is right here!” I ran my finger under the mailing address. “Kataki Yoi. Got that?” Kicking some of the soot-filled dirt at him, I turned and headed back toward my hut, “Plus, nothing this nice would ever come for someone as disgraceful as you. Something this nice could only be sent for a lady, humph!”

Entering my tent again, I set myself down on the cot. “I wonder what it could be...” I said, looking at each side of the box. “What do you think, Ku?”

“Odd... dish?” She replied, an unsure tone in her voice. Cocking her head to the side, she patiently watched as I searched for a place to open it.

“Well, only one way to find out, I guess...” Before ripping at the white paper, I noticed the Pokeball symbol on one of the sides. As I tore into the box, I found several expensive-looking items within: three Pokeballs, one of which had a crude mountain painted on the top, a small pouch with $200 inside, and a device that looked something like a phone or a PDA.

Pulling them all out and setting the empty box aside, I checked the two normal Pokeballs, only to find them empty. Fastening them to my belt next to Kusabana’s ball, I tested the third one with the funky marking. In a flash of light, a small Pokemon emerged as the glowing dimmed. “Aww, how cute! It’s a little Sandshrew!” I crouched down next to it and gave him a hug. “Hmm... I think your name will be... Jishin!” The little mole gave a smile and let out a sound of glee. “But... who sent you? And all this stuff?” I grabbed the box again and found my name. Where the return address would have been was a decorative stamp with the words ‘Sotai Pokemon League’ under a seal.

In a flash, it came back to me. A couple months before the Syndicate’s invasion, I mailed in a registration to become a Pokemon trainer. I could only assume that they held off on sending this until they felt training on the road was safe again. Now that things had calmed down long enough, they finally shipped it out! “Well, I know when I’VE been given a sign. I have a reason to leave, now that there is something better for me out there than this ruin of a city. Come on, you two. Let’s hit the road!”

There was no dispute. Kusa and I had been sick of this place for a time, and this was just the motivation to get us out of here. Shoving the sack of gems into my backpack and the strange device into my skirt’s pocket, I was ready to set off. Pushing the flap back, I looked back on the tent I had lived in since the Crystal Syndicate left town. Grabbing the picture frame with my parent’s photo inside, I turned ran to the edge of town, Kusabana and the new Jishin at my heels. “Now, it’s your turn Silver. You better watch your back.” I snickered, a sinister grin spreading across my face as I slipped the picture frame into a pocket of my bag...

[color=#00ff99]Cearo Mitsu Gin – F

After Rain had gotten up and left, presumably to go catch more Pokemon, she gently pushed Raizen off her lap and got to her feet, grabbing her backpack.

"C'mon Cary and Raizen, since we're free, let's head over to the bank." She was a little too scatterbrained to be carrying cash around, plus you got a nice interest if you put money in. Definitely a worthy investment of sorts.

She walked along the familiar paths, whistling as she went, and entered through the automatic glass doors of the bank, shivering as she was hit full blast by the air conditioner.

"Man, do they have to turn it up that much?" she grumbled.

After giving her money to the person behind the counter who rolled her eyes and told her "Have a nice day", in a tone that implied that she wanted Cearo to have anything but, Cearo walked back out. She was free now, and she decided to go look for Rain. She wondered where he was.

Wandering back to Route 260, she kept an eye out for Rain while amusedly watching Raizen sniff the air, excited and happy to be out of his Pokeball. Cary on the other hand looked plain bored, as she was originally from this location anyway. Cearo had found her and another Houndour puppy, many years ago when she had been here with her sister, Kimi.

Those had been happier times. Cearo sighed.

Her thoughts were interrupted by a low, warning growl from Cary...There was someone or something nearby...

Cearo looked up to see...

Actually Slugma is merely fire-typed. Only Magcargo is fire/rock.

"Raizen, let's try you in your first battle. First, perform a Rain Dance, that rock/fire Pokemon should feel pretty uncomfortable in the Rain! blind the fire dude with a mud slap, then finish with a storm assisted Thunder, thankfully it isn't immune towards electric attacks."


Slugma
2'3, 77lbs
The Lava Pokemon
Fire type
Molten magma courses throughout SLUGMA's circulatory system. If this POKéMON is chilled, the magma cools and hardens. Its body turns brittle and chunks fall off, reducing its size.


Slugma slithers out onto the dry desert, his slithering leaving a trail of molten rock dragging behind, singing plant and animal life unlucky enough to be close behind. He blinks his little yellow eyes, unable to see very well in bright light. Slugma of course defaults onto his amazing heat-sensitive tracking, finding two far cooler beings than himself, one larger and taller and the other more like a dog or reptile. With a vague nod of of whatever Slugma has that equals a neck, and slurps some lava into his mouth from his lower "lip".

Raizen, the Electrike, wastes no time, and summons up a rainstorm. Quite an unusual sight in the desert. The rain pelts Slugmas skin, doing no damage but annoying him, and creating a steady steam rising from his gooey little form. Slugma's vision improves from the cloud-cover, just enough to see that Raizen is the source of all this. Of course, Slugma hasn't got much of a choice, and Hardens his skin anyhow due to the cooling touch of the rain. Not exactly what Raizen had in mind...

Electrike does not let it get him down, but instead flings a heavy clump of dirt and mud into Slugmas face, stinging his eyes and aggrivating the poor thing. More of his heat shuts off as the mud snuffs out small flames all over, before Slugma can shake it off and reignite himself. Whatever these things were, they were getting on Slugmas nerves! It was too damn early for Slugma to be dealing with this! He even yawned, causing a chain reaction for the opponent and his trainer yawning, but Raizen had the downside of slowly nodding off to sleep.

The rain, however, kept Raizen awake. Cooling, calming rain. He looked to the sky and yelped 3 times, thunder crackling from cloud to cloud, before a righteous bolt rained from the heavens, striking Slugma, sending the poor thing flying backwards and onto his "butt". Slugma sloshed and struggled, fising to his feet, and spit out a nasty series of embers, almost completely put out by the rain, but a few managed to sting Raizens face, doing trivial damage and simply annoying the dog/iguana/thing.

Your Name: Michael Silvern
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Your Description: Mike stands about 5'10, ("towering" over his girlfriend) with a rather average build and light skintone. He has a bit of a belly, and messy brown hair. His eyes, also brown, are hidden behind a pair of glasses. He can usually be seen wearing a black Metallica t-shirt, with khaki pants and black sneakers. Although it's barely noticeable, Mike walks with a bit of a limp, favoring his left foot.
Your Personality: Mike is rather friendly, but introverted and shy at first. Even around people he knows he can be very shy. Mike is generally very quiet, but when he speaks it's usually a joke, although he has been known to have very somber moments. Around Laura, he is much more outgoing and affectionate, and much more willing to talk to her than anyone else.
City: Limtore
Pokemon: Citizen Snips, male Krabby
Captured Pokemon: Male Doduo
Friends: His girlfriend, Laura Deirdre

---------------
"Backpack? Check. Pokeballs? Check. Money? Check. Bank Statement for $100 deposit? Check." I read each item on my list off, marking it as I came to it. All that was left now was to find my Pokemon. My pet Doduo(who we all just called Dodo) and my new Krabby, Citizen Snips.
"I'm so proud of you. Finally starting your journey." My mother smiled and pulled me in close for a hug, "You'll go so far."
I smiled and hugged back, "Here's hoping," before breaking the moment and heading out towards route 253.
"You be careful!" She warned one last time, I nodded and waved, seeing Laura out of the corner of my eye, dashing towards me.
"It came!" She yelled to me excitedly. As she jumped, I nearly fell backwards, catching her in my arms and kissing her warmly.
"It came!" She repeated herself, showing me a cute little Snorunt.
"It's adorable!" I smiled, petting the chilly Pokemon. I opened my own Pokemon, letting my Krabby out. It quickly crawled up my shoulder and began snipping at my ear.
"Ow, hey stop it. Stop it. STOP," I said, quickly losing my patience, "CITIZEN SNIIIIPS" I yelled, half-jokingly in fear to commemorate his namesake. His eyes lit up and he finally stopped, resting in my arms with a one last "kookee".
I smiled and patted his head, and with my little crabby buddy and Laura close behind, made a beeline for Route 253...

Drill Peck ~ Drill Peck ~ Quick Attack

Round ONE

A little Oddish toddles around, brushing through the long grass, looking for food. Feeling hungry, he searches, but suddenly, comes upon an angry seeing Doduo.

Oddish’s eyes go all large, as he views one of his greatest fears – an evil bird that wants to eat him! He tries out his first attack, looking all cute and adorable, trying to charm the mean bird(3% energy on Oddish’s part).

Doduo just glares at the little Pokemon, vowing not to be taken in by cutesy little things. He rears back and stabs down viciously with his sharp beak, injuring the little plant Pokemon(13% damage to Oddish, 4% energy from Doduo).

Oddish sits down and wails, tears coming out of his little eyes. Doduo suddenly feels the delayed effects of Charm, and his heart softens, and he is now reluctant to attack the little bulb. Taking a quick peek, Oddish is glad to see that his ploy has worked, and he shoots out a couple of hard hitting seeds right at the Doduo(6% damage to Doduo, 4% energy from Oddish).

Despite this display of aggression, Doduo has barely to heart to use Quick Attack, and he does so reluctantly, slamming into the little Pokemon quickly(7% damage to Oddish, 4% energy from Doduo).

With a quick puff, purple dust fills the air. Doduo blinks once, twice, then falls forward in a slump, asleep(3% energy from Oddish). Oddish grins triumphantly, and hops around excitedly.

Your Name: Kathy Prestor (full name is Katharine, but hates it full)
Age: 16
Your Description: Tall for her age (around 5'10") and very slim, with a medium-light skin tone; she has smooth, dark brown hair that falls to her shoulder blades, and a pair of bright green eyes that always seem to smile at you. For clothes, she wears stuff like below (this is just what she starts with); she always has her MP3 Player on her, as well as her laptop; she also wears (almost unnoticeable in the pic) a silver-chain necklace with a heart pendant with matching dangling-heart earrings, and a small silver ring on her left hand ring finger. Her backpack (not pictured) is in the shape of a Snorlax and is stuffed so that it doubles as a pillow.
http://img.virtualplay.net/asbrpg_kathy.png
Your Personality: Kathy is bright, perky, and overall just a happy girl. She is NOT, however, ditzy or air-headed in any way. She usually likes to think things through before acting, but is very good at making on-the-fly and split-second decisions, which are critical in battle. Kathy isn't exactly anti-social, she just has a hard time actually making friends. However, once she makes a friend in someone, she's very loyal to them.
City: Runtsu
Pokemon: Drowzee (M - Sleepy)
Captured Pokemon: Marill (F - Bubbles)
Friends: None so far...*tear*

-~-~-~-~-~-~-


+-= Kathy Prestor =-+

[color=turquoise]I looked down at the strewn-around contents of my package and sighed. It was finally the day that I was leaving on my Pokémon journey. I should be excited, jumping around ecstatically or something. Instead I was moping; all these starting trainer things just reminded me about my sister.

She had left four years earlier on her own journey; she was sixteen, just like I was now. But after about a year, she stopped calling. After two weeks without contact my parents did everything they could to search for her, but nothing was ever found. Even today we haven't heard anything about her.

So while I was excited, I was also scared. I didn't want to end up disappearing like my sister, but I knew that in reality almost all trainers who set out make it home safely. Glancing over at Bubbles, my Marill, I saw her giving me a bright and innocent look, and I couldn't help but let a smile slide onto my face. I wasn't going to let the memory of my sister hold me back; after all, that's not who I am.

I glanced over at the new filled Pokéball I had received. I still had no idea exactly what it was, only that the PokéCenter had determined (based on a questionnaire I had done a few weeks ago) the type of Pokémon I was most likely to be compatible with. I had almost thought of waiting until I was on the road to find out, but I was too curious and I didn't want a nasty surprise when I was too far gone from my familiar surroundings.

I picked it up, enlarged it, then pushed the button to let it out. A flash of red light came out and materialized into a small humanoid shape, brown and yellow in color. It blinked and looked up at me over its short snout. I recognized it as a Drowzee, the only Psychic type that had been approved as a starter.

I looked at it and suddenly I felt this weird..."sense" I guess. Like I could almost feel what Drowzee was feeling, while still definitely feeling like myself. Reaching over, I pulled my new PokéDex off of my bed and pointed it at Drowzee. A bright voice called out: "Drowzee - a Hypnosis Pokémon. Drowzee often feeds off of the dreams of the sleeping. To prevent others of its kind to feed off of it, Drowzee has trained itself to never sleep."

I glanced at Drowzee again; despite what the 'Dex had said, this Drowzee looked rather sleepy. Then again, the feeling I was getting from it told me it was definitely not sleepy. And yet, sometimes I find irony very pleasing, especially when it comes to names. With a sly grin I said to the Drowzee, "Would you mind it if I called you Sleepy?" He simply raised an eyebrow, then his mouth curved up on one side and I could definitely feel his amusement.

"I'll take that as a yes, then," I said, smiling myself, while also trying to shake off the weirdness of this new extra sense. Bubbles then decided to introduce herself, and I could immediately tell they would get along fine. "Okay!" I said suddenly, standing up. "It's time for my journey to begin!"

I heard what sounded strangely like a laugh from Sleepy, and he pointed at me. On an urge (which I suspected came from Sleepy) I looked down...and saw I was still dressed in my bright blue pajamas. I blushed, realizing I had made a slight fool of myself, then recalled both of my Pokémon as I quickly went to get dressed.

~^~^~^~^~

"Fresh clothes...check! Laptop and MP3 Player...check! Sleeping bag and bed stuff...check!" I verbally went through everything as I put it into my very-fluffy Snorlax backpack. I put my Pokéballs on the special white belt I had bought just for today, then placed my PokéDex into the right-front pocket of my jean skirt. I was finally ready to go.

Unfortunately, that meant it would be the last time I'd see my parents for a while, which meant I'd have to say goodbye to them. Already I was being reminded of my sister, but I had to push those thoughts out of my mind. This was MY journey, not hers. Putting my Snorlax backpack on my back, I slowly walked down the stairs.

As I had expected, both of my parents were at the kitchen table, waiting. They had done their best not to look sad, but I could tell they really didn't want me to leave. Dad spoke first, "So...are you all set to go, Kathy?" I nodded, not daring to speak.

"And how often are you going to call us?" Mom added, trying not to let her tears show.

"E-every week, at least once," I said, nearly choking. This wasn't going to be easy, but I knew I was going to do it. Nothing else really could be said at this point, so I just went over and hugged my parents before running out the door with a yelled, "Goodbye!"

~^~^~^~^~

I sighed, sitting with my back against the outside wall of the bank. I was glad I lived in the hi-tech part of the world; banking was painless. I now had $75 left from my initial cash from the box, having deposited the other $125 into my account. I knew I would have to spend some of that on a boat to get to the mainland, but for now it was nestled nicely in my front-left skirt pocket.

After a few moments I got up, brushed off my skirt from sitting on the ground, then made my way to the shore. As I was heading for the dock I heard someone call out my name. Looking around I saw Mr. Kand, a nice old (well, middle-aged) man who had taught me to swim years ago. He loved the ocean (which was good, considering we were surrounded by it) and made it a point to only train Pokémon that he found from the waters around the island.

"Starting your journey, are you?" he said as I came over. I nodded, and he did in turn. "I remember when I wanted to go on a journey. But you know, I found that the ocean here is quite nice as well, and never wanted to leave for very long. Then again, you're not me, so I guess you'll have different feelings, huh?" He chuckled.

A low toot sounded, and I nearly panicked. "It was nice talking to you before I left, but I really have to go now. I don't want to miss the boat."

"Oh, why take that ugly thing?" he replied, giving it a sideways glare. "If you don't mind a smaller, less-catered boat, I'd love to take you across myself. At no charge, of course." I couldn't think of anything nice enough to say, so I simply nodded enthusiastically and smiled brightly.

~^~^~^~^~

As he helped me onto his boat, which looked like a floating two-room apartment, I noticed that there was no engine anywhere visible. "Um, is the engine hidden or something?" I asked, not wanting to sound insulting, or worse, naďve.

To my surprise, Mr. Rand chuckled. "No, there's no engine on the boat. I've got the engine right here," and he pulled out two Pokéballs from his belt. "They need a rest every now and then so we'll be going slower, but I find it much more pleasurable this way." and he tossed them out, revealing two Wailmer happily splashing in the water. He tossed a rope down to each, with a small harness built in to each, which the Wailmer grabbed and started swimming, pulling the boat ahead with them.

"Don't worry about anything now; I've got rations for a couple weeks and facilities to last us a month." He smiled down at me. "Now, is there anything else I can do for you?"

As I looked out across the ocean, I saw the splashing as other water Pokémon swam around us. A sly grin crossed my face. "Well, if you have a fishing pole, I'd like to borrow it while your Wailmer take their breaks..."

Your Name: Jace McClane
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Your Description: Is about 5' 11", medium build but by no means a weakling - the harsh surroundings of his hometown have given him ample opportunity to exercise and prepare himself for adventure. He has dark brown hair, which is slightly long and usually scruffy, and dark blue eyes. He usually wears a black long-sleeved t-shirt (sometimes with the sleeves rolled up) with a navy-blue sleeveless jumper. He also wears either black or dark-green combat trousers, a brown leather belt and dark brown boots. He sometimes wears a dark blue woolly hat as well. His backpack is about 55 litres in which he carries a change of clothes, his items, some basic hygiene products, a desert scarf, his cell-phone and other useful items. He wears his pokeballs on his belt.
Your Personality: Jace is a very determined person, always wanting to see something through to the end. He'll often set himself goals that are very hard or near-impossible, just to force himself to push it to the limit; to him, giving up is never an option. He is also a loyal friend and not one to make enemies, although he knows an asshole when he sees one and is not afraid to put a bully in their place. Often the man in the middle, he doesn't like to take sides if his friends argue, but would prefer to reconcile them.
City: Diruntha
Pokemon: Alexei - Snorunt (m)
Captured Pokemon: Bryant - Magnemite (n)

Jace McClane

I had returned from my morning hike on Route 256 with Bryant floating loyally by my side. Although he doesn't have any legs, he enjoyed it almost as much as I did. It was a pretty light one; although the weather was warm, at least for morning, and the skies were clear, we made it short, I didn't really want to venture too far into the mountains and get attacked or something. As I approached my house, I saw a Pelipper fly down, drop a box at my doorstep and then take off again. I decided to investigate - the box had an official Pokémon League stamp on the front. In excitement and awe, I dropped at the box and began ripping the tape across the top, opening the box. Rummaging through, I found a PokeNav, a PokeBall and an envelope. Ignoring the envelope and the PokeNav, I picked up the PokeBall, aimed it at the ground by Bryant and released the beast inside.

A beam of light shot out and began forming the shape of my new pokemon on the ground. Suddenly, it came to colour and my new beast was standing in front of me.
"Snorunt!"
My excited new beast, even more excited than me, jumped at me and tackled me to the ground, then began hopping happily on me, whilst all the while yelling,
"Snorunt! Snorunt! Snorunt!"
Bryant flew up behind it and said,
"Magnemite!"
The Snorunt jumped up and hid behind a bush. I recovered and decided to open the letter.
To Jace McClane

We are informing you that you have been accepted into the Sotai Pokemon League. Find enclosed your Starter Pokemon and your PokeNav. Feel free to nickname your new Pokemon and use your PokeNav if you have any queries. Also find enclosed $200 to get you started.

The Sotai Pokemon League

I picked up my PokeNav and pointed it at the Snorunt, who had come out from behind the bush but was still keeping his distance. The PokeNav spoke.
"Snorunt - the Snow Hat Pokemon - it is usually found in freezing climates and legend says a home visited by a Snorunt will experience good fortune."
I thought that was pretty useless, but at least I know something about my Snorunt. I walked over to it and petted it. It became excited again.
"You're a chirpy little fella' aren't you? I'm going to call you Alexei. Hey Bryant, come over here and say hello!"
Bryant hovered over cautiously and buzzed. Alexei tried to jump up at it but Bryant dodged out of the way. I laughed and opened up both of their Pokeballs.
"Okay you two, time to rest, we're about to head off on an adventure!"

I returned them both to their Pokeballs and stood up. I had already packed my bag but it was in my room. I opened my door and ran upstairs to my room. I grabbed my bag and ran downstairs, but my mother called out for me.
"Jace! You're not going without saying goodbye are you?"
I sighed and turned around.
"Bye mother."
I turned to the door again but a hand on my shoulder stopped me.
"Where were you thinking of going first?"
"Erm, I was thinking of heading out to Whentre and seeing what happens next."
She tutted.
"No plan, what would your father think? Speaking of which, I think he is at North Hyners, if you're going that way, you should meet up with him."
"Okay, bye!"
I ran out the door before she could say another word and jogged towards Route 256 before I could get stopped again.

Except I still forgot in my hurry that I was still clutching my $200 in my hand. Luckily, the bank was on route, so I deposited my money there and hurried off up the mountains, hoping to encounter and capture some Pokemon.

Hyperness is a Good Thing vs Slugma!


"Raizen, Toxic up that fire slug, then Spark it, then finish with a Thunderbolt.

Round 2...FIGHT!

Health: 81%

Note: Stung by the Thunder. Whatever muscular structure he has is likely to seize up(20% chance)
Capture rate with Pokeball: Low(take 10% off health for paralasis)

Raizen took his orders and nodded, eyes blinking a bit. This didn't stop him from hacking up a disgusting mix of toxins and fluids, flying through the air and melting into Slugmas body. Some of the good burned away harmlessly, but a good portion of it still seeped through and made Slugma sick. The slug gagged and hacked, a pink fog drifting towards Raizen. it seeped into his lungs, just enough to cause him to hack and cough, keeping him awake.

Raizen lowers his head and growls, charging forward as electricity crackles all around him. With a deafening "crack", Electrike slams into Slugma, the electricity sparking off and sending Slugma backwards. Slugma winces as it sits up, and hardens its' skin yet again, as the rain slowly begins to let up.

Finally, Raizen charges electricity into the crest on the back of its' head, glowing and sparking with power, before finally releasing a blast of electical energy, burning through the air and hitting Slugma, who is too paralyzed to move even the slightest bit.

Rain Taylor vs. [color=pink]Gastly, [color=#bc8f8f]Round Two!

[COLOR=#bc8f8f] Arena – In a desert landscape, little vegetation around, the temperature near 100 Degrees Fahrenheit
[CENTER][COLOR=blue]Let Round Two Begin!

With worry in his eyes about the possibility of a hypnosis attack, Rain calls for his Rhyhorn to close its eyes and use another double team. Shaking off the last of the ice crystals into the desert sun, Ghastly moves onto the offensive as his eyes light up for another Night Shade. Recognizing the attack and the pain it can bring, Xion closes his eyes as his image wavers again and four Double Team clones appear around Ghastly. Shaking its head back and forth in confusion, Ghastly fires off his night shade which goes straight through the nearest clone.

Suddenly Rain realizes that she is going to win this, and orders Xion to use a Icy wind, knowing that the desert heat will dull the effect of it. The Rhyhorn bellows in approval, as a cold wind sweeps down from the mountains and across the arid landscape. As it approaches the hotness of the landscape begins to dull it, yet it still strikes Ghastly at near frigid temperatures. Annoyed by all the cold attacks, Ghastly powers up and fires another night shade attack only to have it strike through another clone.

Shivering in his own right from the icy wind, Rain decides to tempt fate and orders Xion to repeat the attack. Xion nods and the sound of the approaching wind rumbles off in the distance. Above them the sky seems to darken as the warm air and the moisture of the cold icy wind begins to cause the first rumbles of a thunderstorm. Exhausted from the Night Shades, and still with many clones left to go. Ghastly decides to take things closer and runs toward one of the last few clones, its tongue hanging out in preparation of a lick attack. Tossing it’s tongue forward in a flash the Ghost Pokemon pushes it’s tongue against another of the Double Team clones, only to watch it fizzle out into nothingness. Shocked and stunned the Ghastly turns toward the last five clones only to be struck in the back by the frigid cold wind that swept across the arena. Smirking in triumph, Rain watches as Ghastly can barely keep its self-afloat. All the while drops begin to fall from the sky as the rainstorm starts.

[COLOR=#bc8f8f] Arena – In a desert landscape, little vegetation around, the temperature near 100 Degrees Fahrenheit, A thunderstorm brewing above
[CENTER][COLOR=blue]Let Round Three Begin!

Lightning flashes across the sky as clouds rumble and brew ominously. Rain glances at his Rhyhorn and smiles at the sudden twist of fate. With a flick of his wrist and a twist of the Pokeball, he sends it spinning across the battle field in a thrown arc that collides with the Ghastly. The Ghost Pokemon turns around in shock just in time to see the ball open and a pink light to envelop the Pokemon. The ball lands upon the muddy ground and twists, once, twice, finally a third time as the ball pings. Ghastly has been captured!

Chapter One: A Rare Encounter

Wandering down the quiet mountain trail, Jace hums, the sweet breeze has a slightly chill to it, and thunder rumbles in the distance. But he pays it no mind, quietly whistling to himself before an almost silently scratching noise is heard not far off from him. Curiously he stops, whistling a bit higher, sounding somewhat like a Pidgey, he leaps back in surprise when a rare and fierce pokemon bounds onto a large rock.

"Absol!!"

Shocked as the demon dog pokemon with a scythe like horn bounds at him one more time, he smirks.

"An Absol!" Tossing a red and white pokeball he laughs defiantly, accepting the pokemon's challenge. "Go Bryant! Thunderwave!"

In a bright flash a small metal ball with a screw embedded into the top of its head and odd magnets on its sides appears. A rather android like sound emits from the pokemon, as it stares at the demon dog, who reacts faster than Bryant expected and thwacks into Bryant's body, but Bryant has perfect timing as it releases a small wave of sparks that lightly zaps the Absol so that it backs off slightly.

"Good job! Now Spark!"

Determined not to let dark pokemon get the better of it, Bryant charges quickly and rather erratically fires off a jumbled shot of electricity that gives the Absol a nasty shock, causing its muscle to freeze! Poor Absol! All it can do is helpless watch as the Magnemite lets off a slightly higher tune of sound that was probably supposed to be laughter.

But as quick as the froze, the muscles unfreeze, Absol leaps forward, but comes to a short stop the tune of a thousand and one confusing thoughts echoes in its ears, causing its world to wobble and blur, making everything seem a bit unnatural.

[font=monotype corsiva]-~:*River Eytheranea*:~-
→Route 255←

[font=monotype corsiva][size=3] River did not have to look long for a Pokémon. She and Cimmy had only just begun avid searching when a Snubble jumped out of the bushes. It growled menacingly at River but she just smiled, she knew these Pokémon were big fakers. The poor thing was probably terrified.

“Ok Cimmy! Your up! First off try to put it to sleep with a Hypnosis!” Shouted River.

Ciimy tossed his head and galloped forward into battle, he was very eager to show just how tough he was. He pawed the ground as the Snubble runs as him and slams him with so much force he takes a bit of recoil. Cimmy takes it well and instead of glaring he catches The Snubble’s eye and send out waves of sleep inducing energy. It floods into the Snubble’s briain and causes the ‘sleep’ area to start to activate. The Pokémon starts to topple over, and yawns heavily.

“Use a Sunny Day, and follow it up with a Solarbeam.” Says River smiling, so far her strategy has been working perfectly. Cimmy looks to the sun and starts to dance by rearing bucking and trotting in place. He swings his head and the clouds zip away, the Sun’s heat pouring down unto the field. Cimmy revels in the warmth and his flames grow bigger, while Snubble collapses, the heat is feeling just too good not to take a nap in.

River wipes sweat from her brow, no matter Cimmy is enjoying this she thinks it just to hot. Cimmy meanwhile whickers in satisfaction, his opponent will be very easy to hit now. He opens his moth and starts to concentrate the Sun’s light on a place just in front of his muzzle. The light gathers into a ball and grows larger. When Cimmy can’t hold the energy anymore he lets it go, the light streaming toward the sleeping Snubble. I smashes into her and she flies a good way, obviously waking up from the impact, but still a little off.

“Great job Cimmy!” calls River and Cimmy prances in acknowledgement “Now I want you to use a Flamethrower.”

Cimmy whinnies and sucks in a great amount of air. It mixes with the gases in his specialized lungs and he breaths out a great torrent of flame. It streams at Snubble who ducks down to protect her a little, but she can’t wake herself up in time to use a counter attack.

“A, well, try Quick Attack. Lastly Relax, well see what level of HP it is at.” says River a little uncertain. She wouldn’t mind have a Snubble overly much, as Granbull’s can be very useful. Cimmy nods and gallops at an incredible speed at the Snubble. She meanwhile is getting ready, cocking her left paw backwards. Cimmy smashes into the Snubble who only uses the momentum of her spin to slam her fist into Cimmy’s side as he passes. He flies sideways and skids on the ground, coming to a stop on his belly. Cimmy pants and stays right where he is, taking a breather. The Snubble, seeing her chance, rushes at Cimmy and hits him with a Tackle that only budges him a little.

“Ok Cimmy, your doing great!” calls River, giving her tired Pokémon encouragement. He snorts nodding his head before scrambling to his feet, rest over. River frowns thinking, as the Snubble rushes at Cimmy, its jaws crackling with black energy. He instinctively rears back in fear, but the Subble just crunches down hard onto his right hind leg. Cimmy squeals in pain but hears his trainer’s calm voice saying to use Flamethrower. He responds to the voice and quickly blasts down a torrent of fire upon the biting dog. She reluctantly lets go, the heat being just o much. She is pushed back a few feet before Cimmy stops. His back leg almost gives way as he lands onto all four hooves again.

River quickly calls out to use Tackle and he canters at the Snubble, unable to go much faster. The Snubble has similar ideas and runs at Cimmy. They collide head on, and both fly backwards, stunned by the head on collision. Cimy shakes his head as River tosses a Pokéball at the weak bull dog puppy. It rocks three times before clicking shut.

“YES! Boogie time! River dances in place, do very bad imitation of the Macarena, some strange Grease like moves and just jumping around. Cimmy is amused and limps over to River, nudging her. She stops and grinning, she forcibly hugs her Ponyta. “Great job Cimmy!” Cimmy whickers and points at his Pokéball with his nose. She obliges and recalls him.

She then turns around and races back to North Hyners, evidently she is not totally leaving. She shrugs though, her Pokémon need healing more then she needs adventure. North Hyners quickly comes into view, as she had not gone far anyways. She jogs into town and drops off her Pokémon at the Pokémon Centre. She leaves Cimmy and as yet unnamed Snubble with the Joy and just takes Aysu with her. She notices the flyers plastered all over town about a 10% discount at the newly opened Magne Mart.

She grins and heads over to the store. Inside she sees a variety of items but the one that most catches her eye is the saddle. She loved riding her family’s Pokémon, and she’d love to do the same with her Ponyta. She takes off a saddle labelled Ponyta/Rapidash and heads for the counter. She puts it on the counter and hands over her bank card over. The teller rings it up and River heads back to the Pokémon Centre saddle under one arm and much lighter in pocket.

Your Name: Kalah Byquest
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Your Description: Kalah stands at about 5'8 with a graceful and athletic build that seems to fit her well-proportioned body fairly well. Her skin is smooth with a hint of a tan from being outside a lot, but yet having a very dominant light skin color which prevents her from being too tan. Her eyes are a blazing and striking moody blue that usually match whatever the nearest "blue-like" color is around her. Her hair is long and flowing, reaching to about four inches past her shoulders and being a rich deep brown in color with a few sun-streaked highlights. She has strong lengthy legs with an elegant torso and a regular sized chest in proportion to her body. She wears light blue jean shorts that seemed faded a bit and also wears a olive-forest green mix colored tank-top shirt that hugs to her body slightly. Her feet are adorned with brown hiking-like shoe boots (not fully boot-like but not quite shoe-like either...) and she occasionally has a green bandana around her head, depending on the weather. About her neck is a lovely silver necklace with a strange pendant hanging down from it, with a few japanese characters stating her name and "Love" above that. (Wink!) and then about her wrist is a small silver bracelet with another pendant upon that.
She usually carries with her a light blue backpack, filled with the usual beginning-like stuffs. She also has a few very small books and some food supplies as well. Oh, and an ipod... because no one can live without that. ^_~
Your Personality: Kalah seems to always be quite cheerful and optimistic. She can be quite outgoing with any one person, however she tends to get a little bit shy around big groups of people she's unfamiliar with. However, while she doesn't like to make enemies and prefurs friends, she does like competition and when put into a competitive situation she hates being left behind. She doesn't get angry and surpresses her anger or sadness usually, but when it eventually releases... watch out. She's extremely caring towards her pokemon and treats them like one would treat their children, and she can be a bit protective of her pokemon and her friends if she's around them. Still, she's trusting of people (almost a bit too much) and believes that everyone has a bit of good in them.

KALAH BYQUEST
.: In Dirunthra | Female :.

[color=royalblue][font=tahoma]

"Liiithe! Lithe lithe lithe!" Kalah slowly opened her eyes to feel a wet, sloppy tongue washing over her face.
"FENNI!!!" Kalah immediately bellow, sitting up and grabbing her Growlithe so that he stopped licking her.
"You little rascal..." She laughed lightly, getting up and sliding her feet into her slippers. Yawning and stretching for a moment, she glanced at disheveled self in the mirror. Her hair was messed up slightly although she did look like she had recieved a good night's sleep. Fenrir happily sat upon the bed, watching her as he occasionally wagged his tail. It seemed as if Fenrir knew what today was... the day that Kalah had decided to leave her home and go on a long journey.
"Lithe!" Fenrir suddenly barked, wagging his tail more as if telling Kalah to hurry up.
"Alright alright... I'm moving." Kalah said playfully, going over to Fenrir and tapping him on the nose. "Now be a little more quiet."
Swiftly, Kalah entered her bathroom and took a shower. She took her sweet time in the shower, knowing that perhaps it would be the last time she would get to have such a lovely and refreshing time. After a while, she wrapped a towel around her chest and soon exited teh bathroom. Fenrir was still upon the bed, laying down and waiting for her as she entered her room. She laughed as he playfully wagged his tail, and then she opened one of the drawers of her dressers. Swiftly she took out her clothes and put them on, barely having time to put on her shirt before a knock on the door got her attention.
"C-come in!" She called, sliding her shirt over quickly as her mother came into her room.
"Hey hun, I'm leaving for work... I just wanted to say goodbye before you left me for a while." My mother said softly, instantly rushing to give Kalah a hug. They embraced briefly before parting, and her mother had a slight tear in her eye. "I'm so sorry I can't stay longer... but you know how work is..." She trailed off, but Kalah nodded slightly.
"Don't worry mom, I'll be sure to stop by sometime during my little journey."
After a few more words, finally her mother left. Kalah withdrew a slight sigh before grabbing her light blue pre-packed backpack and heading downstairs. Her mother was a busy woman, but she really wished that perhaps her mother could have found some time to stay a bit longer. In anycase. Kalah soon came to the kitchen (with Fenrir at her heels) and managed to scrounge up some breakfast. Of course it was only cereal and some milk... and Fenrir had his usual canine-related meal. Kalah could barely eat any of her cereal... her stomach was too tied up in knots and she was far too excited. The gripping reality that she was leaving her home to travel abroad to become a trainer was fantastic. She had waited for this day for so long... and now that the League had finally approved her...
"GRrooowl!" Fenrir gave a bark to snap Kalah out of her daze. She swiftly rose and cleaned her bowl before putting it into the washing machine. Glancing back at her Growlithe she smiled.
"Okay okay! We're going to go now."
With that, Kalah did a double check to make sure she had everything... and then she exited through the door. Before they were to leave however, Kalah looked about and soon saw her father not too far off. He was near their garden with a few pokemon hovering about him. A Butterfree was flying about while his loyal Bulbasaur was helping him weed the garden. Abra was sleeping, of course... which only caused Kalah to roll her eyes.
"Hey Dad! I'm off!" Kalah said, waving her arm as she approached him. A big grin instantly grew upon his face as he looked at Kalah and stood up, wiping the sweat off his brow before giving her an instant hug.
"Oh sweetie... you've grown up so much. I remember when I was your age... young... adventerous..." Her father's mind wandered before she brought it back down.
"Hey dad! Dad! Yeah, I gotta get going soon... but I just wanted to say fairwell."
Her father gave a nod, snapping back into reality before glancing at the pokemon around him.
"Before you go Kalah, I want to give you a special gift. Its from your mother and I... we'd like to give you a pokemon."
Kalah's eyes widened for a moment, as she instantly pictured having a Bulbasaur by her side or even a Butterfree. A beautiful, powerful and magnificant pokemon with her and Fenrir... a great team...-
"... we'd like to give you Da."
All at once, Kalah's dreams were put out in a hurry.
"Da? You're... giving me... Da?"
"Well, yes... Da would make an excellent beginner pokemon for you. He's the one with the least training... and besides, he's so cute, isn't he?" With that, her father poked Da several times. Da however, didn't seem to notice as he continued to sleep with some Zzz's above his head. Kalah's dreams were instantly smitten as she was given Da's pokeball and sucked the sleeping Abra into it.
"... thanks Dad..." Kalah said softly, trying her best to look happy about the decision to have Da.
Well... Da at least is a pokemon... Kalah shrugged, looking at Fenrir who didn't seem to be bothered at all by the decision. Instead, he simply barked and wagged his tail quite happily but looked persistantly towards the path out of the territory.
"Well, I love you... and I'll stop by again soon!" Kalah said, waving goodbye as she dashed down the driveway. Fenrir barked happily and immediately dashed right off next to her...
"First I'll go to the pokemart, and then perhaps I'll see if there is any wild pokemon around..."

Alright the sales are okayed for everyone and your bank account has changed to reflect that. I've also decided to extend the sale until Wednesday for people to be able to get back to the city to buy stuff. Also from now on please make sure your character returns to the city before buying something. You can't magically have something appear in real life or in the anime, so the same goes here. Oh and the TM system will start tomarrow, but the TMs will not be effected by the sale.

Alright guys, time to start the TM system. Hopefully the list will be posted sometime tomarrow morning. Everyone that is in a battle right now can still do it ASB Style, anyone that starts a Wild Battle from now onwards is subject to the TM system. That is your Pokemon knows all Level and Egg moves and basically anything but Tutored and TM moves, which you will need to buy from the store for your Pokemon to learn them.

Round Two

The little Oddish, satisfied that his opponent is out of commission, is about to turn and run off, when suddenly, Doduo gets to his feet, apparently still asleep. Staring in wonder, Oddish is hit by three different beams, and gets to experience being burned, frozen and shocked all at the same time(11% damage to Oddish, 4% energy from Doduo).

Retaliating angrily, Oddish stretches out some odd looking vines that sprout out of its leaves, touching the Doduo and absorbing some of his energy and healing himself(5% damage to Doduo, 3% health to Oddish, 3% energy used).

Doduo remains asleep, but he suddenly emits some strange waves that radiate over to the Oddish and leaves him rather confused(3% energy used by Doduo).

Oddish, while attempting to attack Doduo, falls over, head spinning, and feeling generally unwell(4% damage to Oddish). Doduo finally wakes up, and spots the little Oddish kicking its legs helplessly around as it rolls on the floor. He moves over quickly, and aims another brutal peck at the little plant(13% damage to Oddish, 3% of energy used) Oddish squeals in pain, unable to fight back.

[color=#8fbc8f]my word, sorry Hype! That was spelled badly...I blame my mother, personally...she was distracting me ^^;;

Your Name: Arělys Tyrnea’rae (Ar-i-lees Tir-nee-ah-ray)
Gender: Male
Age: 19
Your Description: Arělys has silvery white hair which is long and wild. He lets his hair flow loose, disdaining the ponytail which most men use in favour of a more girly look. However, he could never be mistaken for a girl because of the total manliness of his features. He has a strong jaw, bushy eyebrows that are as wild as his hair, and a pair of piercingly dark eyes. His eyes are darkest brown, so dark, in fact, that they appear totally black.
A single scar traces his cheek, from the outside corner of his right eye all the way down to about opposite his nose. The scar is slender and pure white in appearance, so it pretty much blends in with Arělys’ pale complexion. His skin is as white as white, and yet he doesn’t burn in the sun, staying the same milky colour at any time of the year.
His silver hair and pale skin give Arělys an almost ethereal appearance, further enhanced by the fact that he wears anything but ‘normal’ clothes. Hating jeans, and any light coloured, heavy materials, he wears a pair of simple linen pants in a dark grey colour, tied with a black cord in a fancy knot. On top, Arělys prefers a loose, black shirt-type thing, with no buttons, and it reaches to just above his knees, somewhat like a smock, really. He has yet another cord tying it in the middle, this one in silver, and the top half lies open rakishly, revealing his skinny but slightly toned chest and belly. Not particularly well-muscled, Arělys is more defined in the terms of muscles, having only slight curves. Despite this, he is still rather strong.
At his waist, he ties a small sack in which his Pokeballs are stored, meaning that his way of battling depends more on which Pokemon he can grab first, rather than strategies.
Your Personality: Arělys is...somewhat random in both his battle-style and his personality. As stated before, he just grabs any Pokemon from his little black sack and lobs it into battle. Despite this, there is no need to think he is a pushover in any way. He may not have strategy, but he can use his Pokemon well. And he will whup your ass with them, too! ^^
Ahem...Arělys is quiet and almost drifty really. He is soft-spoken, so you have to listen to hear what he says, and he rarely speaks unless he thinks it is necessary, preferring to contemplate his words before speaking them out loud. This often leads to people thinking of him as stuck-up, or pompous, but to his close friends, he is anything but. He looks out for his friends and his Pokemon, caring for their welfare as much as for his own. He is calm and collected, but in the heat of a Pokemon battle, his wilder streak shines through

~Arělys Tyrnea’rae~

Ruffling the fur of Har’s back, I flopped onto the ground hard, clutching a small package to my chest. I had waited until I left home and said my goodbyes before checking out my starter Pokemon, and now the exciting time had come.

Sheltering from the crashing rain under a small bush, I hugged Har to me, the bony parts of his skull digging into my chest a little as he growled in happiness, tail wagging from under my arm.

“Let’s see what we got, Har!” Unwrapping the package hastily I was happy to find the paper tearing off nice and easily to reveal a red-and-white pokeball within, nestled next to a machine I knew was a pokedex.

Grasping the pokeball in my free hand, I felt it grow in my palm, and holding it to my lips I kissed it once for luck. Pressing the little button, I held my breath as a Pokemon materialised.

“Grow?” The puppy put it’s head on one side and plopped itself down next to me as I squealed in happiness. I had always wanted a Growlithe!

Har squirmed free of my grasp and pottered over to the orange dog to introduce himself, making inquiring little sniffs and quiet welcoming noises, his tail held high. The Growlithe sniffed back, then went into a crouch, pouncing on Har, who squirmed away and back into my arms. He had never liked the company of others, really, but he would have to get used to our new puppy team-mate.

Holding out my hand, I beckoned the little dog over, and he came curiously, sniffing and wagging his bushy tail.

“Aren’t you beautiful?” I slipped into that funny speech people use when talking to puppies, my voice barely making sense, but the Growlithe seemed to understand, rubbing his head against my knee and parking himself in my lap.

Patting his head, I mused to myself. “Now what shall we name you?” He whined, looking up at me, trying to understand my words.

“Aelethil! A good strong name…it means Winged Knight, which is what you’ll be when you grow up!” I ruffled his fur gently, and his eyes closed in happiness. Two fire types, I was so lucky! They had always been my favourite type, not withstanding Dark, and now I had two beautiful puppies.

“Ael?” I looked at the Growlithe quizzically as he examined a raindrop before it fell onto his nose, making him jump in surprise. “Do you want to go back in your pokeball? Away from the rain?” He made a noise of agreement and I pressed the little button once again as the red energy tucked Ael away in his nice warm home once more.

I knew that Ruhar didn’t mind the rain, and, deciding that it was time to go, I stood up and shook myself off.

“Come on Har, let’s go!” He wagged his tail eagerly, and our journey began. Route 260 and meeting people were our next destination, and after that…well, I fancied a new Pokemon…and I had heard that Absol frequented Route 256, which wasn’t so far away from where my friend Grey lived. Planning to call him up at some point, I wandered along the now rain-free road, making sure that Har stayed away from any puddles. Musing to myself, I mentally went over the belongings in my little sack. A fresh collection of pokeballs, a potion and Ael. Lost in a world of my own, I failed entirely to notice the Pokemon sitting quietly in front of me…

Round ONE!

Some Hoothoots are lazy. They are content to spend the rest of their existences sleeping in the day, and hunting some unwary Rattatas at night.
Some Hoothoots are timid. They run and hide at the slightest noise.
Some Hoothoots hate sunlight. They hide away in their burrows or holes, only emerging when the cover of night gives enough shadows to them to wander around safely.

Not this Hoothoot. She's up, awake in the broad daylight, energetic and ready to battle. Flapping her small wings, she attacks first and releases a Whirlwind that knocks the Growlithe off his feet. He lands onto the ground, with an oopf, with hurt pride and a hurt behind(7% damage to Growlithe, 3% energy from Hoothoot).

Bushy tail and bright eyed despite his smarting butt, Ael sniff the air, seperating all the different scents with his sensitive nose, identifying the Hoothoot's odor, and getting her precise location(2% from Ael).

Hoothoot slams her entire body into Ael, causing the fire pokemon to yelp in pain(8% damage to Ael, 4% energy from HH). However, Ael recovers fast, and Hoothoot finds herself encircled in flames that close in on her to singe her feathers(9% - HH, 3% energy from Ael). Ael wrinkles his nose as the smell of burnt feathers comes wafting towards him. Terrible.

Angry, Hoothoot leaps forward, and pecks down onto Ael with her sharp beak(7% -Ael, 3% energy from HH). Ael retaliates by chomping down on Hoothoot's left wing, and breaking the bones within(9% - Hoothoot, 4% energy - Ael).

[color=#8fbc8f]Right Ael (who is in fact, male! ^^ whee, that rhymes!), lets start something! (are we using the TM system now then?)

This time, use a Take Down to start off with, and follow it up with a nice Flamethrower! Singe that Hoothoot some more! Finish the round with an Agility to help you to avoid that pokemon's attacks.

Round TWO!
Red signifies Damage, Yellow signifies energy loss

This time, Ael has the advantage over his opponent, and he leaps forward, crashing his larger body into hers(10% - Hoothoot , 3% - Ael ).

Hooting angrily, Hoothoot releases a supersonic waves at Ael, and confusion takes over Ael's mind(3% - Hoothoot ).

Struggling to overcome his confusion, Ael shoots out a burst of flame at the bird, burning her even more(9% - Hoothoot, 4% - Ael) . The air shimmers, and Ael feels himself reeling around as waves of mind-bending confusion hit him(7% - Ael , 3% - Hoothoot ).

He falls down, unable to move properly, so confused is he(4% - Ael ). Hoothoot hops forward slowly, unable to balance herself properly because of her injured wing, and lands a weak peck onto Ael.(4% - Ael , 3% - Hoothoot )

Round Three
Red signifies Damage, Yellow signifies energy loss

Ael, though befuddled and bewildered still has enough sense to listen to his trainer's commands, and he relaxes, trying to calm down and snap out of his confusion.

Seeing the little puppy wrinkling his brow, Hoothoot takes the opportunity to leap forward to attempt a Tackle, but her injured wings throws her off, and she only manages to land a glancing blow(5% - Ael , 3% - Hoothoot ).

Feeling a lot better, Ael blows out a jet of flames, and Hoothoot shrieks in pain as she is burnt even more(10% - Hoothoot , 4% - Ael ). Using her uninjured right wing, she hops unsteadily forward, but with a hard whack, smacks it down on Ael, right on his sensitive nose(8% - Ael , 4% - Hoothoot ).

Whining, Ael nevertheless moves to his next attack, and Hoothoot finds herself surrounded by flames AGAIN. The ring of fire closes in on her, and she is again burnt(8% - Hoothoot , 3% - Ael ). Resolving to hate all fire Pokemon forever and feeling the pain of her burns(4% - Hoothoot ), Hoothoot steps forward with a deep Growl that sounds odd, coming from her bird-beak(2% - Hoothoot ). Her eyes glint wildly with anger. Ael backs away, his bushy tail well between his backlegs, suddenly afraid of this lethal looking Pokemon.

Round Four
Red signifies Damage, Yellow signifies energy loss

While the Hoothoot is triumphantly cackling away at his fear, Ael sits on his haunches and lifts his voice into a haunting wolf song, beautiful to the casual listener, but terribly frightening to any Pokemon in the nearby area(3% - Ael).

Hoothoot is not spared, and she feels chills run down her spin, and she cowers back. She attempts to perform a Featherdance, but since she trembles and falls apart everytime Ael even glances at her, it is not successful(3% wasted energy from Hoothoot).

Seeing his foe so afraid, Ael forgets that he was ever intimidated by the bird, and he rushes forward with an almost puppy-like enthusiasm, and, opening his mouth wide, he crunches down on Hoothoot’s already injured wing(10% - Hoothoot, 4% - Ael).

The bird Pokemon screams in pain, and fear drives her almost mad, as the Growlithe is still clinging onto her. She pecks his head and, when he releases her, she runs away as fast as she can, hopping crazily on her one visible foot(7% - Ael, 6% - Hoothoot).

As she tries to run away, Ael blows a huge draft of super-hot air with tiny flames all over the poor Hoothoot, and she collapses, trembling visibly(13% - Hoothoot<plus aggravation of older burn wounds>, 5% - Ael). Though she lies weak there, it doesn’t stop her from trying another attack. She releases a beam of sleep inducing energy at Ael, but it doesn’t hit accurately, thus making Ael a little drowsy, but he does not go to sleep(4% - Hoothoot). She struggles to get on her foot, and succeeds, flapping her uninjured wing wildly(2% to get up)

Grey
I wandered down Route 253; sunny skies loomed overhead, and I could hear various birds chirping in unison, perhaps singing a song just for me? Exol'tai had continued wandering behind me whilst Argonaut rested safely in his poké ball.

As I continued to wander aimlessly, I began to wonder if I'd ever see any wild pokémon running about. It had been nearly an hour, and most of them had been in hiding. I shrugged it off, and continued for a few seconds before I heard a rustling in the bushes nearby. Coincidental, I supposed, the fox-like pokémon leapt out of his hideaway and growled menacingly at me.

Finally, I thought to myself with a smirk upon my features, "Tai, you ready?"

"Cuu!"

"Alright then," I said, "start off with a Focus Energy to keep your mind at ease."

Exol'tai grunted playfully before stepping forward; he kept his mind calm and all thoughts purged from his head. As he did so, the zigzagoon kicked up a cloud of sand which made its way into the cubone's skull cap. "Cuu!," my pokémon squealed whilst flicking the sand away from his helmet.

"Alright, Tai," I said to him, "use Bone Club!"

Wasting no time, the cubone proceeds to bash his new foe with his faux sword over and over, causing some slight uncomfort for the zigzagoon, who then proceeded to retreat as if she were trying to escape. Before I could say anything to my pokémon, however, the zigzagoon turned around, darting ahead and slamming into Tai with her head outstretched. Tai squealed once more before pulling himself back together.

"Now use Ancientpower!"

Tai nodded in acknowledgement whilst charging up energy. The femer bone he used was withdrawn as he suddenly shot forth a barrage of rocks and earth. The zigzagoon darted around and around desparately trying to avoid the attack, but failed to avoid the last bit of it. A prison of rock and earth enveloped her, and when Exol'tai went to study his foe, she was nowhere to be found. He kicked the debris to find that Zigzagoon had burrowed underground.

"Perfect," I said whilst my smile grew, "now use Earthquake!"



That battle had ended successfully. Exol'tai grew weary not long after it, so I recalled him back into his poké ball for the day whilst I continued on my journey. Hopefully I would find some trainers one of these days...

"Lock-on! Then use a Zap Cannon!"

Bryant focuses onto confused foe, watching every single movement, twitch and... Stumble? Poor Absol yelps as it falls, its attempt at Razor Wind miserably fails as it struggles to rise to its feet.

Static wildly flies from Bryant's body, and the little Magnemite fires off a ball of zig-zagging electricity bigger then itself. Perfectly homed in on Absol because of the recent lock-on. It in a mighty static and lighting bolt explosions Absol is sent flying back and slammed into the large rock it had once leapt on.

As another one of its moves fail (rather miserably), Absol manages to stand back up, and attempts to leap forward, but luck is against the dark dog, his muscles fail, and he is sliced by a couple of fast moving stars.

Jace smiles, this Absol will be his soon.

The rain begins to fall again, as Slugma groans and shakes his head, body stiffening with the water. But this wasn't a natural rainstorm! Oh no! This was, once again, that devious little dog...thing, Raizen causing the storm! Slugmas body again stiffens and Hardens without much say in it from the slug, as the magma cools and solidifies, increasing his defense further still.

Raizen growls and sparks, the electrity crackling around him released forward in an arc, sending sparks around the ground beneath Slugma as its' body tenses up, unable to actually move to launch an assault. Raizen smirks, happy with himself.

The Electrike grins and fires off another volley of electricity, crackling and sending the Slugma back. It glowers, and spits out a quickly extinguished Ember attack, doing no damage. Although it's not a total loss, Electrike hacks and coughs, as does Slugma, although the fire-type feeling overall worse for the wear.

Doduo zips forward, and this time, using both its beaks, and literally drills them right into the Oddish, leaving two gaping wounds(19% damage to Oddish, 8% energy from Doduo).

Oddish, the pain of his injuries overwhelming the confusion in his brain, releases some purple powder that wafts over to Doduo, and the bird Pokemon feels the first tingles that tell him that he has been poisoned(5% energy from Oddish).

Doduo rears both its heads up and strike down onto the Oddish, but the crafty little plant proves too nimble, and Doduo only manages to hit with one of his heads(12% damage to Oddish, 5% energy from Doduo).

Oddish attempts another charm(2%), posing cutely, but the Doduo refuses to be taken in again. He attack brutally for the third time, managed to snap off one of Oddish’s leaves(14% damage to Oddish, 4% energy from Doduo).

Reaching out with another vine, Oddish touches it gently to Doduo’s body, absorbing some energy, and of course doing some damage, feeling slightly better(6% health from Doduo, 4% energy from Oddish, 3% health to Oddish).

Alright guys TMs have been posted, your Pokemon can still use Egg and level moves, but TMs are off limit to any battle that starts now (Yeah I said last night but we didnt have the TMs posted so the people that started battles this morning can still use TM moves). Also remember your Pokemon still isnt healed until you guys use a item and you only have 2 Pokeballs, I know how much fun this is, I cant wait to do my own battle myself, but Pokeballs dont magically appear XP. Oh yeah I'll let you guys decide if you want the Wild Pokemon to know TM moves during battle. Personally I think it would be bad since the Pokemon would just suddenly forget those moves when caught. Anyway I would suggest posting your opinions in the Coffee Shop. Alright time to work on a post and the Gym stuff * Colapses *.

Knowing that the end of the battle is in sight, Ael pads forward casually and, tensing, he leaps onto the Hoothoot, and crunches down on her. Not able to take it any more, Hoothoot falls forward in a dead faint.

[font=monotype corsiva][size=2] "River leisurely walked back to the Pokémon Centre. She hoped Cimmeron wouldn't mind carrying her, the farm Pokémon had never minded. Either way the Pokémon Centre came into view, North Hyners was not an especially large town, it was mostly farms with a rather small central area that really had the look of 'town. She walked into the centre, the air conditions enveloping her with a whoosh. She asked the nurse if her Pokémon were done and she nodded. She took them back and asked for a room. The Nurse gave her a key and she went upstairs.

When she was in her room she lightly tossed the Snubbull's Pokéball. She came out with a flood of white light before form into a growling shape. She smiled at her and said, "Hey now there's no reason to be afraid. I'm not going to hurt you anymore, I just wanted you on my team."

The Snubbull lowered the volume of her growling only slightly. River bent down held out her hand tentatively. The Snubbull came up crouch down low and reached out sniffing it. It quickly retreated, no longer growling but looking at her suspiciously. River smiled and said, "Hey how about we give you a name. Um, how does Lyall sound? I means wolf."

The Snubbull snorted but thought for a bit before slowly nodding. Rive nodded in return and said, "Well let's all get some rest, we got a long day of travelling tomorrow. Which reminds me . . ." River sat on the bed and tossed both of her other Pokéballs, Aysu forming in her lap, with Cim by the window. "Hey Cim, would you mind carrying me?" River pointed to the saddle on the table.

Cim sniffed it but then nodded, tossing his head and prancing in place. River laughed, "Apparently I'm going to get the ride of my life hmm?"

Cim nodded vigorously and River chuckled as she put Aysu in the tank of water on the wall opposite the window. Aysu 'neighed' happily and spun around in her cage. River turn to the others, "Well get some rest we have a lot of travelling tomorrow."

Walking along the route, suddenly Fenrir gave a few barks and wagged his tail. Flattening his ears he gave a low growl which caused me to stop suddenly. "What is it boy? Do you sense so-" but before I could finish, a Rhyhorn leapt out of the grass. "Wow! A Rhyhorn!" Instantly Fenrir tensed up and prepared himself for his first battle... but I swiftly knelt by him. "No Fenrir, I would love it if you could battle... but this is a Rhyhorn. I think we should let Da handle this." And with that, I stood up and took out Da's pokeball.
"Go Da!" I shouted, and instantly the small Abra materialized. Da gave a light yawn, but Fenrir sooned barked at him enough to jarr him from his previous sleep.
"That's right Fenrir, bark if Da tries to fall asleep..." I chuckled, and then looking at Da I pointed at the Rhyhorn.
"There is your opponent Da! Try your best! First, let's raise your defense and useBarrier! Rhyhorn is pretty big... so you shouldn't have any problems hitting him with your Ice Punch!

"Tai, let's get started: intimidate this psychic with a piercing Growl, then fire off a barrage of Bone Rush! Then, finally, use Skull Bash!"

Round 1
Red signifies health loss, Yellow signifies energy loss.

Tai begins with a low, rumbling noise that echoes eerily in his skull, but before the growl can reach its full potential, Girafarig has already zipped forward nimbly. Cantering, she suddenly feint to the right and crashes into Tai smack on, throwing the Cubone back a few paces(7% - Tai, 3% - Girafarig).

Shaking his head to clear the stars that had appeared briefly before his eyes, Tai rushes to his opponent and begins to brutally beat her with his club(11% - Girafarig, 4% - Tai). The Girafarig rears up, champing as she feels many sore parts from the whacking. She comes back down and slams her hoofs onto Cubone’s skull. Being more than 5 times his weight, she does deal a decent amount of damage(12% - Tai, 4% - Girafarig).

Luckily for him, his mother had a very tough and thick skull, but Tai will not stand for such terrible mistreatment of his mother’s last momento to him. He lowers his head, which gleams with a strange energy, and aims for Girafarig’s tender underbelly. He makes contact with a satisfying thwack! but does not deal much damage as he did not get a running start or gain momentum(7% - Girafarig, 4%- Tai)

Girafarig is breathing rather heavily as her breath was knocked out by that blow. However, she concentrates, her eyes glowing an unearthly red, and an amount of energy leaves her, ready to strike in the future when it will be the most effective(5% - Girafarig).

Running around Limtore I made a quick stop into the bank and dropped off a few bucks. The bank seemed to be even busier today, my guess being everyone wanted to get their work done early before the memorial service for Kinyou is held at the public square later on and all the shops close.

I stepped out of the bank only an hour after I went in and opened up my Poke Gear. Speeding down the dial I reached the phone feature and went through the list of registered trainers that I could call. The list seemed to go on and on with names that I had no idea who they were, nor would ever meet. The name I was looking for was in the K’s, it was the name of a close friend and someone who I had been pen pals with for a very long time. The problem was that I had never heard her voice before. Taking a deep breath I clicked the name and closed my eyes. It seemed like forever before a sweet voice flowed through the speakers of the Poke Gear. “Hello?” She asked.

“Kalah?” I coughed, my voice weak in fear that she would think that I sounded weird or stupid. “It’s me, Ryan.” I added before wincing at my own stupidity. Of course she would know who I was, it said so on the caller ID. I was being so stupid!

“Oh, hey Ryan, are you starting out on your Pokemon journey too?” She asked, her voice a bit enthusiastic yet it seemed as if she was preoccupied with something. Possibly a battle of her own.

“Yeah, I’m still in Limtore, I’m about to go grab some running shoes and gear. We should meet up!” I suggested and then instantly regretted saying it. Meet up? That means she would get the chance to really see what I look like. Gah how stupid could I be.

“Yeah that sounds fine, I’ll send my location to your Pokegear.” She finally said after a long silence. The smile on my face grew as the screen changed to a map of the region, a dot blinking where I was, and a dot blinking on the Route she was. “Okay, I have to run, I’ll talk to you later.” She added her voice growing more frantic. The connection was cut and a bit of worry crept in. Was she okay? Was her battle going okay? I would find out soon enough, yet first thing first, I needed to visit the store and grab some much needed supplies. With a quick check of the Map on my Poke Gear I quickly walked over to the store. If I was going to meet Kalah, I needed to head out on Route 257, which was my next stop. My Pokemon Journey was finally underway.

It's not certain yet, Hyper. And if I am officially quitting, I'll at least have the good will to finish your match for you.

Now I'll use Peck once and then capture it with a Pokeball.

[color=orange][font=franklin gothic medium][b]^Rain^

"Gah!" Rain leapt back in fright as the Gastly loamed forward, extending its deadly tongue in an attempt to lick him. Surprised by his pokemons behaviour, Rain watched Xion leap forward, quickly splitting into five.

And so begun the battle, as Ghastly shot a shadow ball to counter the clones, it only successfully destroyed one, and Xion was in the clear, charging up a frosty beam, Xion fired, letting the chilling beam slam into Gastly who faltered back, but then lashed forward, licking a clone.

Rhyhorn jumped forward, digging his sharp teeth into the Gastly skin, which cried out in sheer pain while countering with Nightshade that caused Xion to let go and step back a bit. Soon enough Xion split into 5 more copies, and the wild Gastly looked confused, but didn't hesitate to try an attack once more, though it failed when again he hit a clone. Xion and Rain smirked.

"Icy Wind!"

The chilling wind swooped down from above and struck Gastly, even as the sun shone down, it still did good damage, and Gastly was left with striking another clones! Ha!

"Alright Xion! Icy wind one more time!" Rain called out, quickly pulling a pokeball from his pocket.

Xion fallowed his instructions, summoning another cold wind that swooped down and struck Gastly one more time. Thunder boomed overhead, Rain frowned; he knew his Rhyhorn wouldn't much appreciate being caught out in the rain... As Gastly attacked one more time and missed, Rain didn't waste a second.

He threw his pokeball, and to his amazement, the pokeball kept it in. As the rain suddenly started to downpour, he slowly stepped up to the pokeball and clutched it in his hand. Smiling, he returned Xion inside his own pokeball, and turned tail, taking shelter (not so brilliantly under a old rotting tree. Quickly he texted Kimi.

Will be at Poke Center! Cya There!

Quickly sending it, he ran off, sprinting back to the Town of Diruntha, he was about to enter the Pokemon Center when he saw the Mart.

SALE

Smiling he entered, staring at the items in a sort of gawking fashion, he had never actually been in here. Quietly he stepped up the counter, asking the clerk for a few things before disappearing outside the shop.

He remained on course, and entered the Center, it was quite empty, a rather bored looking nurse was minding her own business as Rain walked up, gathering her attention.

“May I help you?” She was an unusually snotty nurse, but Rain didn’t mind.

“Can you heal these two Pokemon?”

“Sure.” She answered, again sounding rather bored, Rain sighed. “You have to wait a bit, please have a seat.”

Rain obliged, took a seat not far from the counter, sighing he released Dusk, who immediately jumped up on a seat beside him and looked over.

“Ven?”

“Heh.” Rain sighed, petting his little bug Pokemon. “I’m just a little upset no worries Dusk.”

“Veno.” Dusk answered, curiously reaching into Rain’s pocket and quietly eating one of the pokechow blocks in his pocket, he had actually forgotten about it.

“Hey.” Rain smiled, nudging Dusk slightly. “That wasn’t for you.”

Dusk shrugged, and quietly, both Rain and dusk waited for Cearo.

[center][color=silver]Let Round One Begin!

The tiny Abra, dwarfed by her rocky opponent, took a deep breath and thankfully summoned her Barrier [color=slategray](-6 energy to Da). Sitting smugly behind it, she squealed sharply as the Rhyhorn charged towards her angrily. Her passes in the air had peeved him, and he intended to make her pay, his rage clearly seen in his wild eyes. However, his Take Down (-5 energy to Rhyhorn) had failed to take into account Da’s lovely Barrier, and he bounded off it with a sickening crack and a roar.

Still sitting, Da, happy at the range of the big rock, charged her little fist full of cold energy, an Ice Punch (-5 energy to Da | -13 health to Rhyhorn) which connected right on the ‘Horn’s rocky nose. Shaking her fist, Da flung off chips of ice and rubbed her knuckles. Punching a big rock sure did hurt!

Stamping its big foot on the ground in retaliation, the earth began to shake and tremble, (-5 energy to Rhyhorn | -12 health to Da) causing little Da to fall over backwards, dismayed, her Barrier crumbling too.

Struggling back into her slouching/seated position, the Abra awaited the roc’s next attack before using her own, a clever tactical move, as the ‘Horn soon charged back in, mouth open preparing for a nasty Crunch attack (-4 energy to Rhyhorn), but his teeth connected on thin air, as Da Teleported (-3 energy to Da) away smugly to land on the other side of the bulky rock.

At the end of Round One, the statistics are as follows...

Round Four

It’s pretty obvious how this battle will end, for Oddish is weak, and has long much of it’s will to fight. Nevertheless, it rallies bravely with an Absorb, which only does abysmal damage(5%), and Oddish only gains back minimal health(3%). Almost contemptuously, Doduo pecks down, hurting the poor little plant(7%).

Confidently, Mike Silvern tosses a red and white Pokeball at the Oddish. The ball splits opens, the Oddish is sucked in, and it closes with a small, metallic clang. It barely even moves, and Mike is well content to know that he is now a proud possessor of an Oddish. Unfortunately, his Doduo has been poisoned, and will require medical attention soon(3% ending damage to the bird).

Watching the outcome of the first round of the battle, Kalah clapped and happily cheered on Da. "Great job Da! Keep it up! We'll have this Rhyhorn in no time!" Fenrir also responded happily with a few barks. Thinking carefully for a few seconds, Kalah immediately gave a nod. There were a few downsides to raising an Abra... and one of them was the limited amount of attacks. (Da only knows teleport & those egg moves... lol)
"Okay Da, let's try something similiar yet with a twist. First, do Teleport to swiftly Teleport behind Rhyhorn and then follow up with a quick Ice Punch! That ice should be effective against his Ground counterparts from behind. Then Da, use Barrier[color=royalblue] to protect yourself yet again!" Kalah nodded at this idea, hoping that Teleporting from behind would help Da land a critical Ice Punch. "Yeah... not hitting the horn would help.."

Hyperness vs Slugma!

Electrike
Health: 93%
Energy: 65%
Note: A bit of a cough from the Poison(2% damage), confident.

Slugma
Health: 49%
Energy: 84%
Note: Whatever muscular structure he has is very likely to seize up(60% chance), poisoned, condition worsening(4% this turn, 6% next)
Capture rate with Pokeball: Good(take 30% off health for paralasis and poison)

"Raizen, just try three more Thunders, at any point if you're feeling tired, just Relax"

Raizen growled, nodding his head and charging Thunder. Slugma coughed and hacked a bit, barely able to move as it was...With a grunt, he hacked up a small cloud, the rain dissipating it before it did any good, unfortunetly leaving Slugma in pain, as bolt of lightning ripped through him, leaving the ground charred(and not from Slugma for a change). To add insult to injury, his "insides" felt like they were on...Fire!

Slugma growled, his eyes flaring up, the rain literally evaporating as the Pokemons body flares him, sand turning to glass as he spits the whitehot Overheat at his opponent. Slugma wheezes and winces, the Thunder barely able to go off as Electrike is sent whizzing across the desert.

Electrike snarls and gnashes his teeth, the cool water doing little for the intense burns across his face and paws. He tries to get off another Thunder, but Slugma has had enough! With what little energy he has, another fireball blasts off, keeping Electrike from firing it off. The little slug has found his second wind! Unfortunetly for Raizen, the incredible heat seems to have burned the toxins out of his system, at a high cost. But fortunetly(again, for Raizen) it did the damage this round.

Electrike
Health: 70% (Yowch!)
Energy: 51% energy
Notes: Severly burned across face and chest(2%), poison has subsided. A bit annoyed.

Slugma
Health: 21%
Energy: 60%
Notes: Second wind, gained more confidence. Muscles are still a bit tense(30%), breathing heavily.
Capture rate: Almost Perfect(-10% from Par)

Oh Raizen, that evil little Slug has to go down! You know what, just continue to fry that Slugma's nerves with three more Thunders, no need to hold back, I'm not planning on catching that, and remember, any time you feel tired, just Relax.

Raizen and Slugma glower fiercly, Raizen calling upon the thunder once again, just as the clouds part, but striking hard enough with what little moisture is left in the already-drying air, leaving Slugma unable to move, much to his chagrin.

The Electrike smirks and barks, another volley of lightning raining down on his opponent, the burn stinging a bit, but not nearly as much as Slugmas body, sending his Overheat across the desert, and turning a patch of sand harmlessly to glass.

Electrike smirks, as the Slugma looks to be on its' last legs, barely able to conjure up it's Overheat, too tired to really focus much energy. With another Thunder, Slugma slumps over, melting into a blob of lava with eyes. Defeated.

Electrike
Health: 78% (Yowch!)
Energy: 39% energy
Notes: Severly burned across face and chest(2%), happy to have won.

[color=#00ff99]Cearo Mitsu Gin – F

“Yes!” Cearo called excitedly, watching Raizen shock that little slug over and over again with Thunder. She had been rather disgusted by that worm thing. She wasn’t afraid of it, but she didn’t like it, hence, it was rather satisfying to watch it being fried to the crisp.

Her Pokegear beeped, and she took it out from her bag. It was a message from Rain, and she glanced at it briefly. “Hm,” was all she said.

Turning to Raizen, who was staring a little quizzically at the prone Slugma, she told him, “Hey, you’re tired now, and I want to get somewhere in a hurry, so… go back inside your Pokeball ok?”

Raizen nodded, and she recalled him. She repeated a similar offer to Cary, but the firedog refused, preferring instead to run at her heels, as she had always had.

Cearo smiled, and shrugged. She ran as fast as she could, skidding now and then because of the slippery ground. She grinned ruefully, it was possibly her fault that it was raining.

“Oh well,” she muttered, and dashed on. Luckily, she was in pretty good shape, so she reached the Pokecenter in almost record time.

Dripping wet, she entered, followed by Cary, who though was not bothered by the rain, didn’t like it much. She shook herself, flinging thousands of little droplets of water everywhere, dirtying the clean tiled floor. Cearo earned a glare from the rather prissy looking nurse behind the counter who looked as if she would love to be anywhere else in the world but here.

Ignoring the lady’s dirty look, Cearo walked up to the counter and said, “Yo, can you please help me heal my Pokemon?” She deliberately spoke with a swagger, and held out Raizen’s Pokeball. The woman eyed her disdainfully, but took the Pokeball. Chewing gum that she didn’t have, Cearo said, “Thanks yah,” and turned to join Rain who was with Dusk.

He was grinning quite broadly. “Trust you to pull something like that. What if she kills your Pokemon by accident?”

“Yeah right. She could be thrown into jail for cruelty against Pokemon, the SAPS will be down on her like a tonne of bricks.”

“SAPS?”

“Never heard of them? The Save all Pokemon Society.”

“You just made that up!” he accused.

“What if I did?” she smirked. “So caught any Pokemon?”

“Yeah!” he said enthusiastically. “A Gastly.”

“Good for you,” she said, and punched him. It might have escalated to a scuffle, but suddenly Cearo stopped. “Hey, where are Arilys and Kalah? Haven’t heard anything from them yet.”

“I dunno, just text them?” Rain suggested.

“Sure!” Cearo texted the same message to both, and it read, “Where u? Rain n I r in d PkCntr. Cum meet us dere.”

“That’s bad grammar and bad spelling,” he remarked. “English teachers worldwide are rolling in their graves.”

“Don’t care, it’s straight to the point. They’ll understand it.”

Bryant hovered in the air feeling pretty good about himself as the Absol struggled to move. Powering up, Bryant’s body crackled with intense electric energy as he then unleashed his power[color=yellow] [ - 13 Energy ] upon the Absol. Absol gave out a sharp cry as the electricity enveloped him [ - 15 Life ].
Absol’s body still was quite paralyzed, although the attack was enough to snap him out of confusion. Glaring intensely at Bryant, he managed to strike a menacing Leer [ - 10 Energy ] . Bryant staggered a bit in the air [ Defense lowered ] but swiftly he prepared his next attack and charged up yet again.
Crackling electricity once again seemed to consume his entire body as he charged at Absol and collided into his body, sparking electricity all around the area as he did so [ - 14 Energy | - 20 Life ].
Absol struggled to rise to his feet, although his body barely moved as he slowly did so. Glaring slightly, Absol had a little bit of will left as he focused and the wind began to pick up. [- 15 Energy ]. Ignoring the wind, Bryant unleashed a sharp and grinding screeching noise [ - 10 Energy] which instantly lowered Absol’s defense as he flattened his ears.
However, as soon as Bryant was done, the wind roared to life and rushed straight into Bryant. Bryant held his own against the wind, although the hit was slightly critical and far more powerful than before. [ - 20 Life]. When the attack was complete, Absol’s paralysis seemed almost complete as his forelegs buckled beneath him, while Bryant seemed to breathe heavily as exhaustion was starting to settle in.

What luck! The first Pokemon I encountered was a rare Absol! Everyone who I'll see from now on will be pretty jealous. Our battle had taken place right in front of the opening of the Cissuhan Tunnel. It was dark, but Bryant still had enough strength from the last battle to illuminate the way. We proceeded through the tunnel with little trouble. We disturbed a couple of Zubat but they flew away.

Coming out on the other side of the tunnel, the beautiful site of Whentre greeted me. I returned Bryant, giving him the hard-earned rest he needed. I decided to climb down the hill rather than take the conventional path. I saw a couple of Diglett going up the opposite hills and their chant of,
"Diglett-Dig-Diglett-Dig-Diglett,"
could be faintly heard.

I descended down into the town and decided to deposit Bryant and my new Absol at the Pokemon Center. I then released Alexei from his Pokeball to let him stretch his legs and opened my bag to get some water out. Thankfully, my mother had decided to pack me some sandwiches, which I decided to eat, and gave a couple to Alexei, who liked them and began jumping up and down,
"Snorunt! Snorunt!"
With my Pokemon in the Pokemon Center, I returned Alexei and went to the PokeMart to buy some more Pokeballs.

Yes! A Scyther! We're going to catch this, so lets go to work Taillow! Okay Taillow we can't expect this Pokemon to just lay down and allow itself to be catched so lets start off on the defensive and use a [i][i] Double Team! Next lets take the attack to the Scyther and go after it with a Quick Attack! Finally lets show it the power of a bird Pokemon and attack it with a Aerial Ace! That should give that Scyther some damage!.

Taillow instantly began to fly about as he took flight above the Scyther. The Scyther seemed a bit aloof as it completely ignored the flying pokemon. However, when Taillow used Double Team [color=blue][ - 10 energy ], the Scyther’s head turned and he narrowed his eyes lightly. Multiple images of Taillow appeared all about, but with a grimacing leer [ - 15 Energy ], Taillow’s defense dropped[color=blue] [Defense Down]. [size=1] Despite being slightly shaken, Taillow swiftly swooped down and landed a Quick Attack blow upon the Scyther’s chest. [ - 12 Energy | - 14 Life ]. This was enough to cause Scyther to stagger backwards, but in anger he spiraled his scythes around and managed to knick the real Taillow with a Slash, sending Taillow bashing backwards. [ - 20 Energy | - 20 Life ]. Taillow seemed a bit shaken up by this, but with a further resolve he flew up high into the sky and then swiftly flew downwards to complete Aerial Ace. Wind seemed to spiral about his body as he swooped around Scyther several times, and then landed an even more devastating blow upon the back of Scyther’s head. [b][ - 20 Energy | - 25 Life ]. Scyther gave a cry of pain, but whirled around she instantly seemed more peeved than before. Scyther slowly began to swirl about a bit, moving his Scythes around in an almost dance-like state.

Taillow gave a shrill-like cry as he flew into the air and then dove downwards straight at Scyther. Scyther narrowed her eyes and almost seemed to prepare herself to get hit. Taillow instantly bashed into Scyther with its wings, causing the bug pokemon to stagger back slightly.[color=yellow] [ - 12 Energy | - 17 Life ]. Scyther gave out a low growl… and his flame-like eyes glared straight towards Taillow as he suddenly flapped his wings upon his back swiftly. Darting back and forth, Scyther easily raised his speed with Agility. [ - 10 Energy]. Taillow, a bit flustered by the new speed of Scyther, lowered himself to the ground and using the force of his wings prepared to slap mud into the air to temporarily blind Scyther. [ - 10 Energy ]. However, due to Scyther’s new speed… it failed and missed the bug pokemon rather easily. Scyther gave out a cry and charged straight at the now-easily-attainable Taillow and swiftly slashed and landed a large blow upon Taillow. [ - 20 Energy | - 22 Life (+ Sword Dance)]. After steadying himself, Taillow slowly flew up into the air although he was a big shaken by the large slash attack. Taillow then swooped back down straight at Scyther, aiming a powerful Aerial Ace [ - 15 Energy ] as wind picked up and spiraled around the bird pokemon. Scyther was more prepared for the attack, and he swiftly moved to dodge the attack as Taillow missed and only managed to knick Scyther upon one of his arms. [ - 5 Life]. Recoiling, Scyther swiftly turned around and back swung for a Quick Attack to hit Taillow once more- sending him upwards a bit into the air. [ - 12 Energy | - 10 Life ].

Hearing the reassuring words of his master, Taillow gave a weak nod as he flew around a few times while preparing to use one of his last attacks against the tired Scyther. Swooping down low, Taillow gathered speed as he swiftly crashed straight into the Scyther’s chest for a Double Edge attack. The speed was surprising for even Taillow, causing a slight glowing cyan aura until he finally made contact with the giant bug pokemon. [color=yellow] [ - 15 Energy | - 20 Life ][ - 10 Life ]. Taillow gave out a slight cry as he struggled to rise into the air- the attack having some recoil on him as well. His energy was nearly depleated. Scyther attempted to swing at Taillow yet again, but he nearly collapsed upon the ground. Taillow gave a cry and made an attempt to screech… however it failed, due to the fact that Scyther was not paying much attention. Ryan still threw the pokeball, and Scyther could not help but allow it to make contact with her body as she was engulfed by the red aura. The pokeball landed upon the ground, wiggled a little bit… and within one… two… ping! Scyther was caught.

Congrats! You have caught a Scyther (F) !

Since her battle has been left to die(and I apologize for that myself, but no one else came to pick it up) I must ask:

Hinata, do you still wanna capture Stantler? Perhaps try again for something different?(since you've probably hit a new town it makes sense that you could try one of those routes now, too)

A girafarig, hm, I ponder to myself whilst grabbing Exol'tai's poké ball from my belt, "Tai, time for your second battle! Let's go!"

The ball hits the ground, exploding in a sea of white light before the groggy cubone takes a few steps outward. His adversary this time is a much trickier foe, but I imagine he'll have no qualms.

"Tai, let's get started: intimidate this psychic with a piercing Growl, then fire off a barrage of Bone Rush! Then, finally, use Skull Bash!"

"Tai, let's get started: intimidate this psychic with a piercing Growl, then fire off a barrage of Bone Rush! Then, finally, use Skull Bash!"

Round 1

The grass sways gently in the grassy fields as an unsuspecting Girafarig is suddenly drawn into battle, and her opponent turns out to be a Cubone, who, despite looking a little battered, still present a menacing sight.

Not hesitating, she runs forward, rears up into her black hindquarters, and, her forefeet glowing slightly, she lands down with a solid thump onto Tai’s skull(9% - Tai, 3% - Girafarig). Though shaken by the sudden impact onto his head, Tai remains stolid, and his growl soon fills the air(2% - Tai).

Somewhat intimidated, Girafarig wastes no time in backing away, her eyes slightly dilated. Taking this opportunity, Cubone rushes forward, gathering momentum, and he slams his bone down, hard, onto her rather tender body(10% - Girafarig, 4% - Tai).

The strange Girafarig tail turns to grin at Tai, and a strange beam is shot out, which hits Tai head on as Girafarig keeps her distance(9% - Tai, 4% - Girafarig). He feels rather confused and disorientated, not aware that this was a side effect of the psychic attack.

Still not willing to go near Tai, Girafarig sends some Psychic waves that further confuse the Cubone(7% - Tai, 3% - Girafarig)

Suddenly unsure of his next move, Tai just looks around, puzzled.

Ryan Karrde VS Kalah Byquest
Battle in the Vallely



Kalah Byquest smiled as she watched Ryan settle himself not too far from her. They had been waiting all this time to meet... and now in celebration, they were going to battle it out to test eachother's strengths. Kalah was quite eager with this idea in mind, knowing fully well that this battle was going to be tough. She remembered a little about Ryan talking about his prized pokemon... and she had done the same as well.
"Ready Ryan?" Kalah called out teasingly, "You can always back out."
Ryan gave a smirk and grabbed one of his pokeballs as if to answer. Kalah looked down at her side at Shade, who never had been in a pokeball for as long as she had been with Kalah. Looking up with her brilliant ice-bitten blue eyes, Shade seemed to give almost a smile. Shade wasn't one for being overly excited... she was calm, collected and held an "inner" eager battle spirit. Her strange, violet-colored rings almost glowed as the sun started to disappear over the horizon.

Ryan and Kalah had agreed to meet half way, and upon calling Kalah, Ryan had found out that she was in a valley not too far away from the pokemon center they were supposed to meet at. He had decided to continue walking along her route until they had met... and finally they had. They were in quite a beautiful valley at that. Lush green grass seemed to go on for miles and there were only a couple trees near them and dotting in the distance. A small, marsh-like stream seemed to cut into the valley a little bit... as if offering refreshments to those who dwelled near. A few pockets of dry dust seemed to splotch the ground here or there, as if being a home for an underground pokemon at one point in time or another. It also was dusk... the sun setting slightly over the horizon, casting a brilliant red-golden glow upon everything.
"Let's get this thing started..." Kalah said with a grin, eagerly awaiting Ryan to start the battle.





[ Okay, the place of battle is in a typical valley and the time is the beginning of dusk. Roy Karrde and I need a ref, so a ref would be highly appreciated. Roy Karrde is sending out first. Let us goooooooo... ]

6th May 2006, 02:23 PM
[color=lightblue]'Alright Kalah, you are so going down'. That is what I wanted to say, of course there were many things that I wanted to say to her. First being that she was more beautiful than I had ever imagined. I shook my head trying to get her out of my head. Two days of walking and here I was, facing my pen pal. I could tell her those things later, that I thought she was beautiful, and that I hoped we could travel together. Now I had to focus on the battle. "Here we go Kalah!" I shouted back, clutching the smooth ball in my left hand.

Rearing back like a pitcher I twisted around and threw the ball forward. "Chammpion * not a spelling error *, GO!" I shouted as life sprung forth from the Pokeball, materializing in the shape of a large red dragon. The dragon being my Charizard: Chammpion. "Alright Kalah, Your move!" I added as I prepared for the insuing battle.

6th May 2006, 02:36 PM
Kalah smiled lightly as she watched Ryan confidently throw his pokeball and summon his pokemon, Chammpion. Shade seemed to instantly stand up, bunching up her muscles as if ready to be summoned for this fight but swiftly Kalah wavered her hand in front of Shade. Still staring at Ryan, she smiled... as if knowing some thing.
"No... not yet Shade. You're being saved..."
With that, Kalah took the pokeball that was attached to a necklace around her neck, and detached it. Swiftly the pokeball enlargened, and with a slight toss she threw the pokeball to the ground. Instantly as the pokeball made contact with the ground, it released in a hurry the pokemon that was inside. Instantly a large dog-like pokemon appeared with a sparkle of electricity echoing about his body.
"Xvin, you have a worthy opponent this time..." Kalah said teasingly, as Xvin seemed to instantly focus his eyes upon the large Charizard. Sensing the mood of the Charizard and this battle, Xvin seemed to dig his claws into the dirt and lower his head a bit to the ground.
"Alright Xvin, let's do this! First... let's get ready with Calm Mind to get some focus on this battle field. Then, let's make this day to our advantage by summoning the rain with Rain Dance! As soon as the rain begins to fall... announce your presence with a powerful Thunder!"
Xvin seemed to give a nod, settling his eyes upon the Charizard.

[color=lightblue]My hands began to tremble as the battle started, how could I possibly beat my friend in battle? I shook my head and tried to keep my mind calm. "Alright Chammpion! Start off with a Earthquake." I comanded. I watched as Kalah's Pokemon prepared for the Calm Mind and then followed with a Rain Dance. "Chammpion! Fly in and hit her Pokemon with Aerial Ace while she is prepairing the storm." I yelled out my second command and then realized what she was planning to do.

"Chammpion get ready for a Electric attack so use Defence Curl to protect yourself" I added as I stood ready for what ever Kalah was going to throw at me. She may be my friend but I had to put any notions of friendship aside for the battle.

Are there damage caps? I’m reffing as if there are, if there aren’t, I’ll edit and increase the damage. Oh, and do feel free to criticise my reffing, I do tend to make errors. >.<

~ Craven Orske ~ F ~
[size=9pt]

Dusk was falling upon the lands, and the strange orange glow of the sun was slowly disappearing. Craven, a rather petite girl whose most striking feature was her long, pale blonde hair with shocking electric pink highlights, had been wandering around this area, when she chanced upon two Pokemon trainers about to begin a battle. She had only taken a quick glance at the trainers, a tall guy and a very pretty girl – it was their Pokemon who caught her eye.

On one side, a large Charizard stood up on its hind legs, wings outstretched, and its jaw half open to show its vicious teeth. However, it was the other Pokemon that made Craven gasp it shock.

It couldn’t be…could it? She sat down on the grass nearby, and fumbled through her backpack quickly, and pulled out a slim, rectangular device that had three silver lights running down its front, a large screen and a keypad. One of her tech savvy WOOHP pals had designed and

She lifted up the device and pointed it at the Pokemon, and very soon, she had the readings. She gazed down at the screen and her suspicions were confirmed.

Pokedex entry Raikou embodies the speed of lightning. Its roars send shock waves shuddering through the air and ground as if lightning bolts were crashing down.
Stats:
Health – 100%
Energy – 100%
Other – Dangerous and fit for battle

The information continued scrolling, showing the list of attacks, recommended battle strategies and a whole load of useful stuff that her pal had incorporated in, but right then, Craven was a little thunderstruck by the Pokemon name that she had just seen.

“OHMYGOSH!” she said aloud. It really was the Legendary Pokemon. She wondered how had the girl gotten her hands on one, and she suspected that it wasn’t easy. Probably had to go through some massive testing process and whatnot.

Just to reconfirm, Craven moved the PokeReader over towards the Charizard, and it gave her the reading.

Other – Glad to have found a worthy opponent


She scrolled manually down to its stats, and gave a low whistle. “Impressive.” It was a pretty well trained Pokemon, and had been brought up well.

"Alright Xvin, let's do this! First... let's get ready with Calm Mind to get some focus on this battle field. Then, let's make this day to our advantage by summoning the rain with Rain Dance! As soon as the rain begins to fall... announce your presence with a powerful Thunder!" the girl commanded confidently to the Raikou. She said it quite softly, so that her opponent could not hear, but as the wind had been blowing towards her, Craven heard every word.

Xvin, Craven presumed, stood perfectly still, and his face was a picture of perfect serenity. The boy, whose hands were trembling, as Craven was amused to note, said in a rather uneasy tone, “Alright Chammpion! Start off with a Earthquake."

The large Charizard slammed a fist down onto the ground, and he concentrated. Barely seconds later, Craven could feel the tremors building up beneath her feet. Earthquake a mechanical voice informed her. The shuddering of the ground intensified, and she could see that the two trainers were having some trouble staying on their feet.

The Raikou, jolted out of his meditation, found the ground below him cracking up and a large break in the ground caused him to fall into a hole a few feet deep, and a low cry of pain escaped his mouth.

Satisfied, Chammpion spread his great wings and took to the skies, and Craven got to her feet to look at the Raikou that was slowly clambering out of the hole. He looked a little stiff, but there were no visible outer injuries. He started swaying, and Craven watched in amazement as it performed what looked like a slow, majestic dance.

The boy gasped, obviously realising the Raikou’s intentions. "Chammpion! Fly in and hit her Pokemon with Aerial Ace while she is prepairing the storm,” he yelled.
The large Charizard suddenly swooped down, both his wings glowing, and he slammed them down onto Xvin, knocking the electric legendary back a few paces.

However, the rains had already been called, and dark clouds soon appeared in the sky. Craven looked up, and frowned. It would start pouring soon. She sighed. This was an interesting battle, but was it worth getting all wet for?

Pondering for a while, she almost missed the next attack, had not the boy called out, "Chammpion get ready for a Electric attack so use Defence Curl to protect yourself"

She turned her attention immediately back, and was just in time to see the Charizard fold his wings around himself, tucking head and claws in and curling up.

Xvin, little sparks of electricity playing across his body, clearly in his element, concentrated, and the dark clouds above responded, booming ominously. Almost without warning, a huge clap of lightning bolted down from the heavens, striking accurately down onto the curled up Charizard, with a flash that caused red spots to appear in front of Craven’s eyes.

She blinked furiously to clear up her vision, and when she could finally see again, all that was left to see was Chammpion, uncurled, and twitching, lying on his back, and Xvin, watching rather emotionlessly.

“PokeReader,” she began, but it beat her to it.

”Xvin, Raikou.” it said mechanically. “Health is 82%, Energy left is 87%, Current status: Calm, and feeling very confident.”

“What about Chammpion?” she asked.

”Chammpion, Charizard. Health is 87%, Energy left is 88%, Current status: Suffering from nerve damage, partially paralysed.”

Craven settled back down onto the grass, and smiled a little to herself. This would probably prove to be quite an interesting battle. Overhead, the stormclouds gave another roll of thunder, and the rain started to fall, pelting down. Chammpion’s fiery tail sizzled slightly as the water touched it and evaporated, but the flame continued to burn, signifying that the Charizard was still healthy.

[color=lightblue]My body shook from the heat of the battle as rain dripped down from my hair, down my cheek and off onto my arms. We were winning, and that was a good thing...well possibly a good thing. If I beat Kalah, she may be pissed at me for days, if not weeks. "Chammpion! Watch out for that Lightning and use a Double team to confuse the opponent." I shouted calling out my first command. I waited for the reaction before wiping a few drops of rain off my forehead. It was time for this battle to get close and deadly. "Chammpion head straight in and hit it with a Focus Punch." I commanded sending Chammpion in closer to give the Raikou a direct hit.

"Alright Chammpion you're doing good, finish it off with a Mega Kick!" I yelled over the sound of pouring rain as the battle moved on to it's second round.

Kalah narrowed her eyes, being slightly perturbed... the Calm Mind should have offered more power upon Raikou's thunder attack, with the added rain... "Come on Xvin, you can do better then that! Show this big lizard why you're legendary!" She said with confidence, throwing her fist to the air. Seeing the Charizard go into Double Team... trying to confuse Raikou with the appearance of many different Charizards, immediately Kalah's mind went into action.
"Alright Xvin... he thinks he can confuse us? Let's see him dodge this... use Shock Wave! He seems to be a bit shaken up or paralyzed, and with the added rain... I'm guessing your electrical attacks are going to be hard to defeat. So let's keep that electricity about your body... power up for a Thunderbolt and follow it up with the power of the storm with a Thunder!" Raikou seemed to nod his head, digging his feet into the ground as his body seemed to spark and crackle with electricity.

~ Craven Orske ~ F ~
[size=9pt] Craven was feeling wet, but also exhilarated. It was SO COOL!

She was fidgeting anxiously, waiting for the trainers to go on to their next moves.

"Come on Xvin, you can do better then that! Show this big lizard why you're legendary!" the girl said confidently, pumping her fist into the air. Xvin remained cool and calm, but it was quite clear he was tensing up, ready to unleash his next combination of devastating attacks.

"Chammpion! Watch out for that Lightning and use a Double team to confuse the opponent," the boy called out. His hair was all plastered down and he looked pretty drenched, but so did everyone else.

Chammpion got to his feet, and he shook his head. His movements seemed to be a little slow and uncoordinated, probably some remaining damage from the thunder. His large body shimmered, and 5 other large Charizards appeared around him.

"Alright Xvin... he thinks he can confuse us? Let's see him dodge this... use Shock Wave! He seems to be a bit shaken up or paralyzed, and with the added rain... I'm guessing your electrical attacks are going to be hard to defeat. So let's keep that electricity about your body... power up for a Thunderbolt and follow it up with the power of the storm with a Thunder!"

Xvin gave a slight nod, and his body starting sparking up again, as Craven watched with fascination. She glanced down at her handheld machine, which was also recording all that was going on, analysing and providing necessary stats. What a wonderful mechanism!

Little bolts of pure lightning energy flew towards Chammpion, faster than the eye could see, but using the PokeReader, Craven was allowed to replay it in slow motion. The Charizard and his clones all attempted to dodge, but they were too slow. A barrage of sparks hit them, and Chammpion’s left wing started twitching, as if it was out of his control.

The boy wiped the droplets of rain out of his hair and eyes, rather futilely though. "Chammpion head straight in and hit it with a Focus Punch."

The Charizard blinked a little, and moved forward, but it was clear he seemed rather jerky and unsteady. He raised his right paw which was glowing an unearthly white.

Xvin focused, and a jagged bolt zig zagged down, striking the large Charizard, who despite taking heavy damage, continue his slow rush forward, and his right fist slammed straight into the Raikou, who was knocked back again, but managed to keep on his feet.

Craven whistled lowly, astonished at the Charizard, whose determination was truly formidable. According to the PokeReader, he was suffering from extensive nerve damage, and would probably have problems moving. It was amazing that he had even managed to complete his Focus Punch.

Chammpion reared up to his full height, trying to look defiant, even though it was plain that he was trembling all over.

"Alright Chammpion you're doing good, finish it off with a Mega Kick!" his trainer yelled, trying to raise the large dragon’s spirits.

Xvin gave no quarter, and once again, an enormous bolt of electricity struck right at the Charizard, who collapsed yet again into a trembling, twitching heap. His eyes fluttered open and shut rapidly, and his limbs convulsed and twisted.

Craven immediately consulted the PokeReader.

Chammpion, Charizard. Health: 50%, Energy: 73%. Status: Severely paralysed, might encounter extreme difficulty moving.

She then shifted it over to Xvin, who seemed perfectly fine.

Xvin, Raikou. Health: 70%, Energy:71%. Status: Confidence is really building up, and in his element.

With a quick movement of her head, Craven flicked her hair and some rainwater out of her eyes, intent of watching this battle to the end. Things seemed to be going pretty badly for Chammpion. She shook her head.

[color=royalblue]Kalah watched proudly as Xvin seemed to take her words to heart and he went full-out upon Ryan’s Charizard. Kalah didn’t feel a moment’s hesitation upon battling Ryan… for it was a friendly battle, and their pokemon seemed to be enjoying the challenge. Shade- her Umbreon – fidgeted slightly to the side of her, obviously picking up on the tension of the battle and she was beginning to get slightly eager as well. Smiling however, Kalah watched as Xvin stood strongly and stared intensely at the Charizard. “Okay Xvin… make sure to keep your body charged so in case he wants to try to touch you again.” Kalah commented as Xvin gave a low growl and electricity seemed to sparkle and crackle about his body. “Let’s give you some time to power up and charge your electricity… this Charizard seems to be getting slower and slower, so let’s speed up and use Double Team ! Try to avoid any of his attacks but wait for a moment of weakness and then fire up a powerful Hyper Beam! Don’t worry then either… because you’ll be fast enough so dodge his attacks while you charge up again, alright Xvin? You can do it!” Kalah cheered, feeling the rain pelt down upon her and soak her clothes… but it didn’t bother her. She loved her pokemon and watching Xvin was always an amazing sight.

Personality: She is a bit of a loner at times, preferring the company of Pokémon sometimes to people. But she can swiftly either be attracted to, or repelled by, the personality of some people. She can be shy, but often her boisterous, excited side comes over her shyness. She often has conflicting emotions within her, and so she is quiet most of the time. However, once she gets started, she won’t stop anytime soon. She is bad when she has to think things through, usually second guessing herself and doing the wrong things. However, when she has to think on the spot and react rapidly, she is either very intuitive, or very lucky. In battle, this is a priceless ability for her.

As she grew up in Tilumara, she has become bitter towards the Syndicate for ruining her childhood. Her parents were lost on that fateful day on April 22, and since then she has become wary of strangers, no matter how much she likes them at first. Only her friends are allowed to see all of her personality.
City: Tilumara
Pokémon: Taillow (m, Soar)
Captured Pokémon: Gastly (f, Haunt)
Friends: Yoi Kataki

~ ~ ~

Darkfire looked around herself slowly. The room she was in was dark from lack of electricity, as she was used to. How long had it been since she had had a bed warmed from anything but her own body, had food in her house, had voices of friends and loved ones in the empty halls of her home? She was lucky to have running water and sympathetic people who helped her get an occasional meal in her stomach.

It had been so long since she had heard from her only human friend left in the world, Yoi. The separation was nearly unbearable for the young woman. She opened the dusty window and basked in the warmth of the morning light. Once upon a time she had not been a morning person. Now, she lived to know the sun would always rise and bring warmth and light to her bleak world.

She poked her head out of the second story window that had once been her room, and found herself face to bark with a large, thick tree. She grabbed a branch and hoisted herself upward. She passed the third story and soon found herself eye-level to the nearly flat roof of her home. She grabbed onto the gravel-like surface, and bounced onto tiptoes to get her best start before she bounced back down onto her heels, rocking the branch, and leapt onto the roof.

A small string of unsociable language came as she scratched her arms on the rusty and broken lining of the roof, but at least she was up. She dragged the rest of her body, ripping the hems of her last pair of good jeans, and finally planted her feet on the solidity of the roof.

A large blue bird soared from the tree and began to circle her, chirping frantic questions at her. She smiled up at the Taillow in reassurance and stood to her full height. Darkfire walked to the edge of the roof opposite of the large looming tree and peered out over Tilumara’s ancient-looking town. She ignored the stinging of her new wounds and the feel of blood seeping slowly down her arms to her wrists as she closed her eyes. From her position on the southern side of the house, she could just hear the distant cry of gull Pokémon and the sound of the ocean. She could easily still smell salt, as half of the city was surrounded by the ocean, even though her house was the farthest north it could be.

“I wish they hadn’t banned mail,” Darkfire said, her eyes opening as she faced the Taillow named Soar. He perched on her shoulder and gave a soft high against her ear. He had been with her for two years, her birthday present when she had been about to start her trainer’s journey. But the same year her mother had fallen ill, so she had stayed home. One year ago to this day, she had gone on route to catch her first Pokémon, and had succeeded, miraculously, in obtaining a Gastly. As if to answer her trainer’s silent summon, Haunt appeared out of no where and hovered off of Darkfire’s shoulder on the opposite side of Soar.

“I miss Yoi, you know,” their trainer sighed softly and pulled a small, crumpled picture of another girl out of her pocket. She gazed longingly at the only person who called her ‘friend’, even though they had never met face to face. “I think having a pen-pal was the only way we could have pulled through. The Syndicate,” she spat the word like a foul curse, “has recently gotten so much worse.”

“Low,” Soar agreed.

“Gastly,” Haunt sighed, looking dramatic.

“Come on you two, it’s time we high-tailed it out of here. I don’t care if I have a license or not,” Darkfire’s dark blue eyes seemed to blacken with hatred as she saw a passing Syndicate member saunter down the road just in front of her house. One year ago today, was the anniversary of her parents’ murder. “We can find Yoi out there,” she turned her back on the south and gazed to the desert in the north. She hoped Yoi had received the last letter Darkfire had sent her, containing info on how to contact her through her PokeNav.

She reached up and drew two Pokéballs. Soar had been her official starter Pokémon, and she had used her father’s Pokéball to get Haunt. Both ghost and bird obediently returned to the spheres in which they lived as to not arouse suspicion. If anyone who had a grudge against Darkfire had known about her two companions, they would have been taken from her, forever. The crystal Syndicate didn’t want trainers crawling under their noses.

A bitter taste of fear on her mouth, Darkfire managed herself back down the tree, gaining a few more cuts for her effort, and crept into her parent’s room. Here, she found her mother’s large black bag she had used when she had been a trainer, even if for a short while. She then grabbed a black bandana, wrapped it up, and secured it around her forehead. She then looked up slowly and gazed at herself in the mirror. Fear was replaced with a stabbing pain. She looked skinny and pale, mostly form lack of food and suffering from the growing oppression of Tilumara.

“Mom, Dad,” she whispered as if they gazed at her. Her heart raced and she swallowed hard. She said no more and left, grabbing the last of her money, a measly $200. That was all that was left after her house had been raided. After the blood was cleaned from the walls but still she knew it had soaked into the wood. After… everything. Her breaking point was reached where she would attack anything that crossed her path. Suffering had blinded her with hatred, and weakened her with hopelessness.

She stole out of the house and locked the door. Not that it mattered, if anyone came to search her home. They had broken her front door down before, one year ago. She stared long and hard at the shattered lines that marred the wood, then turned and left without shedding a single tear. The longer she dwelled on the past, the more she feared she would break beyond broken and commit acts she would never be able to repay.

She played absentmindedly with Soar and Haunt’s Pokéballs as she traveled to the northern route. It was there she was finally given a chance to pay back some wrongs done to herself and her town. Before here was a mail truck, stalled by a member of the Crystal Syndicate. Darkfire hissed through her teeth softly, her heart pounding with anger. Those letters belonged to her, and they belonged to others who wanted word from the outside.

“Haunt,” she whispered and opened one Pokéball. Her Gastly materialized beside her. “Hypnosis.”

She watched as her Gastly approached the Syndicate member. “What?” was his startled shout before he fell pray to her Pokémon’s attack. He collapsed to his side and gave a loud snore. Darkfire felt a wave of disgust and crept out of her hiding spot before the mailman attacked her Gastly.

“Please, deliver those letters. There are people who are still hoping beyond hope in Tulimara,” she said, her voice soft.

“Thank you,” he replied. “Surely it’s not as bad as you’re implying, though.”

“It is worse. Not everyone may suffer like I have, but how cheerful can one remain if it gets an ounce worse?” she asked. The man scratched the back of his head slowly and nodded reluctant agreement.

The mailman said and started on his way into town. Darkfire waved after him, cheerful, as it was just hitting her that now she was finally on her way. She recalled her Gastly and turned back to the north. Before her spread out the desert-like wasteland known as Route 260.

Your Name: Emi Watts
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Your Description: 5'9", skinny with tanned skin. She has short, flaming red hair and green eyes. She will wear assorted T-shirts, but she mostly wears her yellow and black sports jersey. She has three pairs of blue jeans but they look alike so people think she just wears the same pair. Her white sneakers are dirty and a little worn but they still do the job. She wears a moderately cheap watch with a brown strap on her right arm. She carries around a heavy yellow backpack that she uses to carry just about everything.
Your Personality: She's loud but nice. She always says what's on her mind though, so her mouth sometimes gets her in trouble. She loves adventures and is looking forward to seeing new places. Her positive attitude can be contagious. She's gung-ho about everything, especially battling. Just like just about everyone else where she lives, she doesn't believe in just sitting around.
City: North Hyners
Pokemon: Casey (female Growlithe)
Captured Pokemon: Stooge (male Doduo)
Friends: Madd Kalistan (hope that's okay with you)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

My head shot up as I heard the sound of a familiar horn. "Mail's here! Let's go, Stooge!" Stooge the Doduo stood up and stumbled around a bit as the two heads argued on which one would take the lead. I sprang up and sprinted out of the house, making a beeline for the mailbox. I opened it up and pulled out a brown box bearing the seal of Sotai. "Here it is..."

Stooge ran up to me and honked happily. I rubbed both heads and showed him the package. "I finally got it! Some money, a couple of pokeballs, my Pokedex, my Pokenav, and..." I pulled out another pokeball that felt like it had some extra weight to it. Attached to it was a tag that read "Your Starter Pokemon". Let's see what they got me. I opened it and gasped.

A cute female Growlithe gave me a goofy smile as her tail wagged enthusiastically. I reached out and stroked her smooth fur. "Casey. That's what her name will be," I told Stooge. I was really looking forward to getting to know her better on this journey.

Route 260, a battle!

[color=#8fbc8f]The battle with that Hooty had taken much out of poor Ael, he was still a pup after all, and after I had scooped him into my arms for a huggle, I called him back into his Pokeball to replenish his energy.

“He’s a good battler, isn’t he Har?” I scratched the black hound behind the ears as he grumbled softly into my wrist. “Don’t worry, the next one is yours, I promise.” His face lightened at the thought, and he wagged his tail before plopping his butt onto the ground with a sigh. “Are you hungry? Well, we need to take Aelethil to the Pokecentre anyway, so let’s take a trip back into Diruntha for a bit, eh?” Ears pricking, Har heaved himself upright and gambolled off down the route, back into the city.

“Wait for me!” I called after him, breaking into a run. We hadn’t gone so far out of Diruntha anyway, only about ten minutes or so down the path, sheltering during the rainfall. Fire types don’t like rain, and I was always careful to keep my mutts out of it. Nothing smelled worse than wet dog!

Slowing to a walk, I pondered what we would do afterwards. Going to the mart seemed sensible. We would need Potions for sure, and I wanted to pick up some Pokeballs too. Remembering the machine I had received as it vibrated in my pocket, I pulled it out to find a flashing light informing me of the fact that I had received a message.

Pressing the right combination of buttons took me to the badly spelled message from Cearo, to which I smiled. They were already in the Pokemon centre! Just where I was heading too.

“Come on, Har! Race you to the Centre!” I set off at a dead run down the final stretch of the route, charging into the city mere inches ahead of Har, who was panting heavily. Glancing at him, I vowed to get in some training for the Houndour, his stamina was lacking a bit. Rounding the corner, I almost ran straight into Rain and Cearo, who were stood outside the Pokemon centre, chatting animatedly.

Screeching to a halt next to Ruhar, I waved and grinned, out of breath from my run.

“Hey guys! I got your message Cearo. Nicely spelled, as always…” I grinned at her and she poked me in the arm. “Hey, you understood it, didn’t you? So don’t complain.”

“Have you already healed your Pokemon?”

“We’re just waiting for the nurse to finish up.” Rain said.

“Ok, well I’ll just go drop off Aelethil and then I need to stop by the Mart, is that ok with you two?” They nodded their assent and I sauntered into the Pokemon centre to get Ael some treatment. I made a mental note to always carry some potions with me in the future; it was a good job that I hadn’t run into any other wild Pokemon on my way back.

Smiling at the surly-looking nurse behind the counter, I fished out Ael’s Pokeball and plopped it onto the table.

“Could you heal him for me?” Putting on my puppy eyes, I looked imploring as she scowled at me, taking the ball from the table and placing it into a machine.

“Come back soon.” I nodded and charged back out to Cearo and Rain. “To the Mart!” I pointed wildly in the direction of the shop, and we set off to buy buy buy!

Happy about her first-round victory, the little Abra did a dancy little Teleport [color=slategray](-3 energy to Da) to appear behind the very angry and very confused Rhyhorn, poor thing, as it hurled a pile of rocks in a Rock Slide attack towards where Dazen used to be. (-4 energy to Rhyhorn) Smirking, the little Da charged up her fist once more, with a lovely target presented to her with the Rhyhorn’s behind, she took the opportunity and swung her fist, connecting with the ‘Horn’s arse. (-5 energy to Da | -12 health to Rhyhorn) Grunting in pain, the rocky beast turned and thrashed at Da, taking out his fury on the little Abra (-6 health to Da | -4 energy to Rhyhorn) as she sat there, taking the attack on her frail body. Passing her hands in front of her once more, she conjured up a Barrier (-6 energy to Da) just in time to stop the ‘Horn’s devastating Horn Attack (-4 energy to Rhyhorn). The rocky beast’s horn shattered Da’s barrier, however, and she was left defenceless once again for the third round.

At the end of Round Two, the statistics are as follows...

After traveling down Route 260 looking for a good Pokemon to catch or train against, Darkfire opened her Pokedex and began to commit Taillow's attacks to memory like she had done with her Gastly's attacks. While gazing down at the red device, she suddenly tripped over something. She shouted and stumbled, barely catching herself. Darkfire turned and looked the Digglet up and down slowly. Finally, she decided it would be a good training battle for Soar, her male Taillow. She grabbed Taillow's Pokeball out of her bag and thrust it out. In a small burst of energy, her Pokemon appeared, and hovered, waiting for her commands.

"Soar, start off with a Double Team to keep it from attacking you. Next, confuse it with a Supersonic attack! Finish with a good strong Wing Attack!" Soar cried out in understanding and went into battle.

Double Team ~ Supersonic ~ Wing Attack

I briskly walked down the route that connected North and South Hyners with Stooge. Casey had decided to take a nap in her pokeball a while ago. I stopped near a pond and checked my backpack to make sure that I had everything. In my haste I sometimes forgot things. Important things. "It seems like I remembered everything. How are you holding up there, Stooge?"

Stooge was looking out toward the pond. Floating in the shallow water was a little Horsea. Those big red eyes were so cute that I couldn't resist standing up and walking as close to it as possible. I pulled out a pokeball and nodded to my faithful Doduo. "Okay, Stooge. You have the legs for this sort of thing. I can count on you for this." Stooge honked boldly. "Run out there and use Supersonic! Then use Tri Attack while it's confused! Finally use Peck to get out one more good hit!"

Kalah narrowed her eyes slightly, a little worried about Da since she seemed shaken. Fenrir, her Growlithe, gave a few barks of encouragement as he wagged his tail to try to cheer Da on. Da blinked slightly, and Kalah knew that they would have to attack the Rhyhorn all out soon. "Alright Da... I want you to double Ice Punch this Rhyhorn once you see a good opening. Let's see how much his ground counterparts like ice! However... we need to be evasive, so if you feel threatened by Rhyhorn and it looks like he might hurt you, use your most natural move, Teleport!

“Whaa…” Rain grimaced, watching Arělys run off towards the mart, quickly, Rain fallowed, having Cearo at his heels, they looked sort of like ants marching one by one, in the rain… Hmm…

“Arělys!” Rain called from behind, as they entered the mart. “What exactly do you want to buy?” He questioned, holding the door open for Cearo who came in behind. “I’ve already done my shopping.”

Cearo snickered, Rain frowned.

“Yes yes, Rain the guy who hates shopping, said the word, and did it okay?” He snarled.

“He he.”

“Come now Rain! Is it that bad?” Arělys questioned, inspecting the goods.

Rain frowned. ‘You’d be surprised...’ He thought, remembering the time he went shopping with Cearo… Oh what a mistake that was. Cearo had impulsively bought everything she could, and Rain had ended up lugging 98% of it back to her house.

That day had sucked.

Cearo lifted an eyebrow. She pulled rain aside and staged whispered, "Did someone spike Arilys' food today?"

"Heeey!" she heard his reply, as he happily browsed through the available stuff.'

"Well it's true.. you're usually....quieter," she said.

"Maybe he's excited?" Rain shrugged.

Cearo frowned, Rain still seemed a little down, maybe he was still worried about his mother.

"So guys, where are we heading next?" she asked, calling out to them. "And where is Kalah? Is she still battling Pokemon or something? Haven't heard anything from her..."

"Maybe she couldn't understand your message," Arilys said, in a perfectly serious voice, but she could almost hear his mocking undertones.

She stuck her tongue out at him, and the three of them laughed. Cearo felt happier than she had in ages... staying at home was quite bad, especially with her parents around, and the name that hung in the air but remained unspoken...Kimi...

Life was much better like this, less worries about her parents' obvious disappointment in their elder daughter, and she was with her childhood buddies, whom she had known her whole life....

Rain snapped his fingers in front of her eyes. "Cearo? Stop daydreaming!" Arilys was still happily looking at all the stuff from the store.

"Er, sorry," Cearo muttered, fumbling through her backpack. "I'm just gonna text Kalah, to tell her where we are."

"Why don't you just call her? Maybe she'll get the message then," Rain said, a small smile on his face.

"Yeesh," she said, turning her back on him. Again, she typed out another message: "V r at d PkMrt. Cum mit us dere."

"Did you ever learn how to spell?" Arilys asked, coming over to read over her shoulder. "If possible, this is even worse than your previous one."

"Shaddap," she said without any feeling, and sent it over to Kalah. Snapping it close, she turned back to Rain and Arilys. "So so so so, where are we heading to?" she asked, fidgeting excitedly.

Diglett blinked her eyes sleepily and looked up at the huge human who was eying her. This was baaaaaad. She had just woken up and was about to get her breakfast, and now she was facing a battle and possible capture? She could have sat down and cried, but now wouldn’t be a good time.

While she was still pondering all this, Soar had already snapped into action, and shimmering, started circling round and round the Diglett(4% - Soar). Her eyes went a little wild, trying to figure out which was the image, and which was real. With a quick movement, she flicked some sand and debris randomly at what she thought was Soar(4% - Diglett). The clods of dirt went right through the image, but the illusion was shattered.

Unperturbed, Soar released a few psychic waves right at her(3% - Soar). She found her head spinning a little, and her vision went a little whacky.

She grabbed a few rocks nearby, and threw them at the airborne Soar, and by chance, a few hit(10% - Soar, 4% - Diglett). Soar flinched in pain, but he quickly recovered, and swooped down, raising a wing, ready to hit the Diglett, but, to his amazement, his wing slammed into empty air as the Diglett had disappeared(3% - Soar). Losing his balance, he fell to the ground and something unseen whacked him hard(9% - Soar, 4% - Diglett). The Diglett reappeared in her hole with a triumphant glint in her eye.

The two-headed bird named Stooge ran out to the edge of the bridge, nicely in range for his Supersonic [color=slategray](-2 energy to Stooge) waves to hit Horsea. He didn’t count, however, on the Horsea’s response, a stream of bubbles (-3 health to Stooge | -2 energy to Horsea) which floated delicately through the sonic waves to hit the bird on one of its beaks.

Shaking his head Stooge opened both of his mouths and let off a devastating Tri Attack (-4 energy to Stooge | -8 health to Horsea) which connected with the poor seahorse, leaving him crackling with electrical energy and shivering with cold at the same time. Confused, Horsea tried its hardest to create a screen of shielding smoke (-3 energy to Horsea), but only managed a slight mist.

Squawking in triumph, Stooge ran closer to Horsea and pecked down rapidly with his sharp beaks (-2 energy to Stooge | -4 health to Horsea), only to be squirted with a jet of water from the ‘Sea’s open mouth (-2 energy to Horsea | -4 damage to Stooge).

Shaking off the water, Stooge squawked once more in defiance, his many eyes flashing with the heat of battle.

Catching him on the arse once more, Da grinned to herself as she charged her fists. This time, however, she didn’t bank on the anger of the large rocky creature as he pulled a terrifying face (-3 energy to Rhyhorn), scaring Da into using her Teleport attack instead of her Ice Punch (-3 energy to Da).

Appearing at the back of the ‘Horn once more, she charged her fist up properly this time, hitting the rock (-5 energy to Da | -12 health to Rhyhorn) as he turned and attacked her furiously (-4 energy to Rhyhorn | -4 health to Da), jabbing down with his horn twice before backing up, preparing for the next round.

At the end of Round Three, the statistics are as follows...

Diglett ~ F
Hp: 100%

Status: Gleeful, but also confused.

Round 2
Red – Health Loss | Yellow – Energy Loss

Soar takes to the skies once again, trilling proudly. Once he is high up, he rears back, and zooms straight down, gathering momentum as he flies, and crashes straight into the Diglett, who is looking a bit confused and disorientated right now(11% - Diglett, 5% - Soar). The impact seems to clear things up a little, and Diglett slashes quickly with her unseen claws, catching right on Soar’s lower body(10% - Soar, 4% - Diglett).

Despite his injuries, Soar, quickly flies back up, out of any further harm from Diglett. The mole-like Pokemon is feeling rather disgruntled now, and her confusion induced headache isn’t making things any better.

Soar is given all the time to ready himself, and he drops like a rock now, with even more gathered speed, and it is clear that the impact this time will be cataclysmic. His wing spread at the last possible minute, he deals two good hard blows onto the Diglett before darting away again(17% - Diglett, 9% - Soar).

Diglett, left down on the ground, growls her frustration(3% - Diglett), and though he is quite far away, some of the sound does reach soar, and though not afraid, he is starting to feel a little apprehensive.

Kalah Byquest -


Kalah smiled happily at Da’s progress… she was really showing herself in the heat of battle. “Great job Da! We’re almost there…” Kalah grinned, seeing the Rhyhorn breathing rather heavily although he was still rearing to go. “Okay Da, still got a few icy punches in you?” Da seemed to nod cheerfully, as Kalah grinned and pointed at the Rhyhorn once more.
“Okay, use Icy Punch again when you see a good opportunity… but again, be careful of Rhyhorn’s powerful attacks. If he tried to come at you, make a strong barrier to defend yourself. Use Icy Punch again whenever you see an opening… hopefully soon we’ll be able to take a pokeball to this guy.”

Icy Punch – Barrier – Icy Punch

Also, if it makes any difference… after this round, I am going to throw a pokeball. Just thought it might speed things up if I say that. ^_^

Drusilla
11th May 2006, 01:32 PM
Name: Drusilla "Dru" Pyronson
Gender: Female
Age: 18
Your Description: Dru stands at about 5'9 with pale skin, black and blue hair, and green eyes. She usually has silver earrings with white crystal dangling from small silver chains, and three more silver and crystal studs in each ear. She tends to dress, as she describes it, "trashy" most of the time, though what she is doing will effect particulars. While traveling, she preffers flat black leather boots to the heeled boots she would wear around town. For important events, she will dress up, but most of these outfits are completely impractical for wearing on journeys. She carries a black canvas messenger bag for her belongings.
Examples: Trashy (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v138/wednesdaygirl13/RPG_characters/dru1.jpg) Classy (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v138/wednesdaygirl13/RPG_characters/dru2.jpg)
Your Personality: Dru is young and strong-willed, but she often has the feel of an old spirit to her. She's deeply spiritual, but not religious, and she tends to take offence to any comments pertaining to her beliefs. She loves nature, though sometimes finds it lonely; while she likes big cities, too, they often give her a feeling of claustraphobia. Traveling has always been a passion of hers; she's travelled extensively, though never by herself before. She won't admit it, but she is nervous about leaving home and going to who knows where. She's kind, loving, supportive, but kind of strange; her sense of humor is definately not the norm, and it can make strangers uneasy.
City: Diruntha
Pokemon: Meowth (F), "Molly"
Captured Pokemon: Ghastly (M)
Friends: Jace McClane, Ryan Karrde, Kalah Byquest, Laura Deirdre, Yoi Kataki


[color=#0040ff]~*~Dru~*~ (18/F/Diruntha)

"Dru! Get up, it's almost noon!" My father was somewhere downstairs, and I was, of course, in bed. It was only noon-ish, after all, where else would I be? I had finally gotten out of high school, and I felt no need to wake up before I felt like it.

"Ghast...." A voice somewhere above me made me open my eyes. "Dude, go away, I don't want to get up..." I muttered. He persisted, however, and proceeded to float in circles around my face.

"OK, fine, I'm up, happy?" I grumbled, struggling to extricate myself from the blankets. My feet didn't want to cooperate, and, trying to get them disentangled, I managed to fall off of the bed and flat on my back. "See what happens?" I shot at Ghastly, who appeared amused by the whole thing. Groaning, I rolled over and picked myself up off of the floor. I glanced in the mirror and saw that my hair was a mess; I pulled it back anyway and folded it over into a bunch at the back of my head.

"Dru!" my dad shouted again. "I'm up, all ready, hang on..." I called back, irritated. No rest for the weary around here, apparently. I pulled my shorts on, buckled the belt, grabbed a tank top and yanked it over my head, grabbed my bag and shoes and headed downstairs.

"You're going to be late," my dad pointed out when I reached the kitchen. "How can I be late if there's no time schedule, dad?" I asked. He didn't have an answer, only shrugged. I grabbed some food from the cabinet, which I set on the counter as I pulled my boots on.

"Do you have everything?" he asked. "Dad, yes, I do, I'm fine. I can do this, really." I laced my boots up and was ready to go. I hugged my father before retrieving my breakfast from the counter.

"Take care of yourself, and know that I'm here if you need help."

I smiled. "I know, don't worry. I'm not going to have my mind wiped the moment I walk out the door, I promise." I lifted a new Pokeball from my bag. "With my new ally, I'll be fine."

With that, I turned and walked from the kitchen, Ghastly following me. "You ready to go?" I asked, and he bobbed in the air eagerly. I pulled out an empty Pokeball and called Ghastly into it. "Let's go, buddy."
~~~

I breathed deeply of the air, enjoying the scenery but trying to stay to the shade. Direct sunlight wasn’t a good idea for me…

“Where to…” I wondered aloud, sitting at the side of the road under a tree. I shrugged. Perhaps someone I could travel with will walk by…

Jace McClane - Currently in Whentre, going onto Route 255

I returned to the Pokemon Center to collect my Pokemon and I released the Absol once outside. I decided to see how tame it would be. It looked at me and growled. I put my hand out to pet it and it came towards me, then nonchalantly bowed its head. I decided to stroke its hair and it sat down and licked its paws.
"So you're a female Absol? Guess I have to give you a name...how about...Abbie? No, that's a terrible pun. What about..."
I looked into her eyes and saw they were a deep violet.
"...Violet!"
She didn't object, so I decided to keep that nickname. I returned her and looked around. I wanted to head to North Hyners so I walked in that direction. Hopefully the gym will be open by the time I get there.

Without fear, I trod on the road and kept a Pokeball at the ready, should I meet a wild Pokemon.

Your Name: Amy Wolfe.
Gender: Female.
Age: 17.
Your Description: Amy is approximately 5’ 5 and ˝” tall with an average build. She has deep blue eyes that pretty much give away how she is feeling. Amy can’t even lie, not that she would want to, because her eyes would give her away. She also has long silver hair that she keeps tied back into a ponytail. Amy’s usual outfits consist of a t-shirt, jeans, and either sneakers or hiking boots.
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y1/WolsongsWilderness/tek060509eb3a943dc.png
Your Personality: At first, Amy appears to be a quiet loner. However, as one gets to know her she turns out to be rather pleasant company. She hates confrontations, but then again she won’t back down from a fight. Amy does tend to make friends easily, once people get past the assumption that she is a loner. Amy is quite dependable to those that know her well.
City: Diruntha
Pokemon: Static the male Electrike
Captured Pokemon: Shannon the male hoothoot
Friends: No one at the moment, but open if anyone decided to want to become friends.



Amy Wolfe
Diruntha
~~~~~~~~~~~

The hoothoot stared down at his trainer, wondering how best to wake her up. Finally the flier decided on the usual method. He fluttered over and landed on the pillow beside her head. Then, he proceeded to hoot softly in her ear while poking her face with his wing. At first, nothing happened but soon, the trainer sneezed and groaned. Giving a satisfied hoot, the owl pokemon flew back to his perch on the dresser.

Pushing the silver lock of hair out of her face, the teenager stuck her tongue out at her friend and pet. “I’ll get you back one day, Shannon.” she joked before climbing out of bed and heading into the bathroom where she proceeded to get ready. Shannon, gave an amused sound before preening his feathers as he waited for his trainer to finish her daily routine.

When he had finished preening his feathers, Shannon curiously fluttered over to the skyblue backpack that was lying on the nightstand. At long last, the girl emerged from the bathroom. She was dressed in a pair of blue jeans, a purple t-shirt, and brown hiking boots. Just as she finished pulling her long silver hair up into a high ponytail, the doorbell rang.

The teenager quickly rushed downstairs and threw open the door excitedly. Sure enough, there was a small package addressed to Amy Wolfe lying there. Quickly grabbing it, she ran to the table while whistling for her other pokemon. When Shannon arrived, he helped her open the package by cutting the ropes wrapped around it with his beak. Once the box was free of the outer layer of wrapping, Amy carefully lifted the lid off of the box. Inside it was $200 dollars, a couple electronic items that she’d figure out later, and three pokeballs. Picking each of them up, Amy discovered that two were empty, but the third was slightly heavy signifying that it contained a pokemon inside.

“Hoot?” Shannon asked, curious at what was in that pokeball.

“Hold your horses Shannon, I’m just as curious as you are about what I got.” Laughing at the inpatient expression on the owl’s face, she picked up the pokeball and tapped the button on it. A few seconds later, a beam of red energy shot out from the pokeball and took the shape of a small green and yellow canine. The electrike barked happily before noticing and chasing its tail, causing a giggle to escape from his new trainer. “Hoothoot.” Shannon sighed rolling his eyes.

Amy ignored the slightly irritated expression on her hoothoot’s face and whistled to get the electrike’s attention. Upon hearing the whistle he bounded over to Amy, his tail wagging ninety to nothing. Amy reached down to pet her new puppy who gently licked her hand. “I think I’ll call you Static.” The electrike yipped happily before jumping up into his trainer’s arms. Scratching the puppy behind the ears for a few minutes, Amy finally returned him to his pokeball before hurrying upstairs and transferring the items from the box to her backpack. Then she clipped Static’s pokeball, as well as Shannon’s and the two empty pokeballs to a leather belt that had designs of wolves on it.

Grabbing the backpack, she slung it over her shoulder as Shannon perched on her head. The hoothoot absolutely refused to go into his pokeball unless it was an emergency or he was being handed over to Nurse Joy to be healed. As Amy stepped outside, she sighed. Her family wasn’t good at goodbyes which was why her parents weren’t at home this morning. Last night had been tough but they had said their goodbyes then.

Before doing anything else, Amy decided to stop by the local store where she purchased two additional pokeballs besides the ones that she had received as well as two potions. After that, she headed to the bank where she deposited the remainder of her money. Upon emerging from the bank, Amy was pondering which route to take when Static emerged from his pokeball and made the decision for her. Barking happily, he took off running towards Route 260. “Hey!” Amy shouted to her electrike as Shannon took off flying after Static. Amy quickly took off running after her pokemon.

I shouted, retreating one Pokemon in exchange for the other. "Now you're going to face a God!" I grinned at Kalah, turning my attention to the Mewtwo, I wiped the brim of my nose and prepared for the attack.

"Start off with using Swift to knock out those clones, Mewtwo!" I commanded, I never knew facing Kalah would lead to this intense of a battle. "Finally hit it with a Rock tomb!" I added, hopeing to finish off the Pokemon in one mighty blast.

"The tide of this battle is about to turn Kalah!"

Jace was walking around Route 255 when suddenly he saw a Numel walking rather aloof-like along the path. Eager to battle another pokemon, he sent out Violet, his Absol who materialized easily near the Numel. The Numel was rather aloof and didn’t seem to pay any attention to Absol… but Absol went ahead with orders and suddenly it used Double Team, having itself clone into about five Absols that surrounded the Numel.[color=silver] [ - 8 Energy ] Numel, looking quite confused at the sudden appearance at an Absol, simply used a low growl…. Not quite understanding what was happening. [ - 5 Energy ] Absol closed her eyes, instantly having her body erupt into a silvery glow-like aura as she concentrating… using Sword Dance to raise her attack. [ - 9 Energy ]. The Numel, quite shocked at the glowing silvery auras of the clones… in fright, suddenly stomped upon the ground and unleashed a very surprisingly good Earthquake. [ - 10 Energy | - 10 Life ]. The Earthquake took care of three of the clones, leaving one clone and the regular Absol left. Absol narrowed its gaze and then charged straight at numel, unleashing a Slash attack. [ - 10 Energy ]. The Slash attack hit Numel directly on, causing him to topple backwards slightly and give a cry of alarm.[ - 16 Life ]. Numel, feeling slightly bewildered simply got to his feet and charged straight at Absol, using a Take Down attack. [ - 8 Energy ]. He directly hit into the clone of Absol, causing no harm to Absol himself, but it hurt Numel as he smashed into the empty ground. [ - 5 Life ].

The Numel slowly rose to his feet, only to see more clones of the Absol he was fighting.

He opened his mouth and then frantically unleashed a Flame Thrower [- 10 Energy ]. His eyes were closed and he managed to take out two of the four clones, and also the intensity of the fire brushed against the real Absol. [ - 4 Life ]. Absol immediately charged into Numel, who gave out a sharp cry as he slashed deeply into Numel’s tough skin. [- 10 Energy|- 16 Life ] Numel opened his eyes as his body shaked slightly, but seeing the Absol caused him to tightly tuck his head against his body as he did Defense Curl. [ - 7 Energy ] Absol once again charged at Numel, unleashing a slash attack but it was a bit more difficult… making a less devastating blow. [- 10 Energy | – 11 Life] . Opening his eyes and untucking himself, Numel saw the Absol shake his paw slightly at the sting of the multiple Slash attacks. Feeling a boost of confidence, Numel inhaled a deep breath once again and this time blasted a large blast of fire directly at the correct Absol. [- 10 Energy | – 15 Life ] Absol was a bit shaken up by this, but he shook his head and glared directly at the Numel… still have his two clones.

He soars back up before she can even retaliate, and she feels her frustration building up. Meanwhile, Soar is dropping down again, ready to attack, but just as he is about to strike, she screeches ear piercingly(3% - Diglett), and his flight pattern goes haywire, distracted and disturbed by her noise, and he misses, just pulling himself back before hitting the ground(3% - Soar).

[color=#0040ff]~*~Dru~*~ (18/F/Diruntha -> Rt. 260)

I released Molly from her Pokeball. "Meow?"

"Hey there..." I whispered softly, gently scratching her benieth her chin. She purred and rubbed her face against my hand. I looked to the northwest, considering my options. I loved the mountains; my kind of Pokemon didn't live here, but the scenery was beautiful. The breeze was cool, and had a slight promise of showers on it, but that didn't mean anything, especially up here. I loved the smell of rain, too, not the smell that comes from urban rain, but the smell of rain in the country. It is the scent of life, and could never really be duplicated. There was nothing else like it. I glanced up into the sky; clouds were gathering on the distant horizon. "Looks like rain, Molly, what d'you think?"

She blinked at me, closing her eyes lazily. Whatever she thought, she wasn't worried about it. I stood, brushing my legs off as I did so. "The day's not going to wait for us... let's go, hon." I readjusted my bag where it crossed my body to the opposing shoulder. "Here goes nothing."

And so I turned to the south. As tempting as it was to go into the mountains, the call of fire Pokemon had me. It was in my blood, I couldn't help it. I came from a family known for it's skill at raising fire types... Tilumara was also a draw. I had been there a few times and I loved the city, and the ocean. How I loved the ocean... You haven't lived until you've had the ocean breeze blow through your hair as you watch the sunset... or rise, for that matter. That's living: watching the sun rise after a night of adventures. Night on the coast is beautiful... then again, night anywhere is beautiful.

Molly padded along beside me and we passed the time in silence. Quickly the terrain of the Cissuhan foothills disintegrated into flat desert. The land seemed barren, but I knew that, somewhere in the distance, Pokemon of all types were just waiting...

In frustration he opened his mouth and spewed out a powerful blast of flame [ - 10 Energy ] but the flame missed its target, taking out one of the clones. Again, the Absol disappeared and reappeared behind the terrified Numel, releasing another attack.

Darkfire, the new description of Double team on the ASB attack list thing has changed, so do you want me to use the new one, or stick with the old one?

Double Team (NO) - The user splits in multiple images, almost always surrounding its opponent. It generally causes confusion to its opponent and will stay that way until the user launches into another attack or the user or one of its images is hit by an attack, to which all of the clones will disappear.
