Default RBY: Generation I (OOC + Sign-Ups)

Hello there. And welcome to the world of POKéMON.

Many nostalgic years ago, now only alive in the memories of children turned teenager, the very first POKéMON were discovered.

There were only 150 back in these days. And everything was extremely simple. Traveling within the confines of this tinily defined world, the young trainers hungered for more. What more laid beyond the boundaries of 150? What secret Pokémon were waiting? POKéMON PROF. OAK had always said; there were many more to be discovered.

The sheer amount of rumours exchanged about the mystery POKéMON beyond the very first were exciting. Many spoke tales of a elusive 151st POKéMON, others of POKéMON who were such abominations detrimental to reality that they were known as "GLITCHES." And others still? They spoke of an exalted breed of POKéMON, known as POKéGODS, who were said to be more powerful and more dangerous even than the highest LEGENDARY POKÉMON MEWTWO. These are the legends beyond legends, the legends that spur the quests of young trainers. The forerunners of POKéMON, born in an era of discovery, mystery, and confusion.

Your very own POKéMON legend is about to unfold. A world of dreams and adventures with POKéMON awaits.

Let's go.

----

Welcome to the RBY RP, my tribute to Generation I. What started it all, we'll be exploring that again! So if you like nostalgia, crazy rumours, and the first 151, strap on your EXP. ALL, because we are going to get our boots really dirty in this.

This RP is intended to be a short installment, and is something that I intend to be finished in a short period of time. But if by popular demand, it is to last longer, I won't try to stop it!

Basically, you are a trainer from Pallet Town circa 1998 who is exploring the mysteries of the Pokémon world. More specifically, looking into the crazy rumours of Pokégods that once permeated the internet back at Pokémon's infancy. As well as glitches. You will try to find these mysterious Pokémon as well as generally interacting with each other and establishing relationships. That's the overall premise of the plot. Also, it will to some extent follow the story of the Gen I games. Although that'll be more background.

With that said, here's how we'll take it:

►RULES

General RP Rules

- No godmodding (controlling other people's characters), Mary-Sues, etc. Blah blah, you already know all of this.

- Please type with as much proper grammar and spelling as you can muster, and making paragraphs to increase the readability of your posts to full potential. We don't want to misunderstand your post because it's written in horrid spelling, we want to misunderstand it because it doesn't make sense on its own!

- You're allowed 3 save files... I mean characters maximum. DMs are exempt from this rule as they will be in control of most of the pivotal plot characters.

- There will be an activity check, so watch out! If a person does not post in the RP for three weeks, their character(s) will be ejected from the story and their spot will be open for new RPers. If you're going to be away for a long time, please tell us in this thread! If you haven't specified how long you'll be away, the activity check time is doubled to six weeks.

Rules Specific to This RP

- Because this is in Generation I, you are ONLY allowed to use or mention Generation I Pokémon. Only the first 150. Your characters are NOT supposed to know about any Pokémon beyond 150. Even Mew is a mystery here, as it has not yet been discovered. So please do not casually mention Pokémon from future regions. As the story expands, we will be meeting the Pokégods and glitches, and your character might be able to capture them. But for now, your character cannot initially start with one. You are, however, free to mention Pokégods and glitches as they are rumours spread by word of mouth.

- Because we're treating this more like it's in the games, this includes Legendaries. Legendaries (barring Mew, again) can be captured and are treated as no less inherently mysterious than other Pokémon due to the presence of glitches and Pokégods here. For Legendaries though, species clause is in effect. Thus, you can't fill your party with a bunch of Mewtwos. You're only allowed to have one of each species.

- Items, new regions, and mechanics are also not allowed. If an item came out in future Generations, it doesn't get mentioned here. No Running Shoes, Abilities, new moves, etc. The only exception is gender, as it would be sort of awkward to refer to every Pokémon as "it." Also, the type chart is exactly like it was in Generation I. Psychics ARE immune to Ghost-types. Plot reasons for this will be revealed later.

►GLITCH POKéGOD RESOURCES

If you want to know more about glitches and Pokégods and want to try to have your characters know of some of the more obscure ones, I recommend the following sites for information:

- Bulbapedia
- RAGECANDYBAR
- TRsrockin Archive

►CHARACTER FORM

Blah blah, I'm crazy about forms, copypaste exactly as it is. Make no changes to the format, please.

[B]Name:[/B] First, what is your name?
[B]Age:[/B]
[B]Gender:[/B] Are you a boy or a girl?
[B]Version:[/B] (Wait, what? You must chose a Pokémon game version. Red, Blue, or Yellow. The version will determine what Pokémon you are allowed to possess, and a few later plot points, such as what glitches your character will be encountering.)

[B]Features:[/B] (Physical features, like eyes, height, skin, etc. What they look like without clothes.)

[B]Clothing:[/B] (The outfit they wear.)

[B]Personality:[/B] (Played Out is allowed, as per usual in my RPs. Give a sentence that sums 'em up nicely.)

[B]History:[/B] (What your character did before they entered the RP.)

[B]Party:[/B] Would you like to give a nickname to the newly captured [NAME]? (You may only have up to six Pokémon maximum. Fewer is fine, you don't have to have a full party. However, in a twist, if you chose Red or Blue, you MUST have one of the Kanto starters in your party. Any of their evolutions. If you chose Yellow, you have to have a Pikachu somewhere in there. Although unlike the games, you're also allowed to evolve it if you want. So it can be a Raichu too. Also, you can't have Pokémon that aren't in your version. Like the games, you can trade with other people in the RP if you really want the version exclusives. Lastly, Yellow people, later on, you will be able to get any of the starters.)

[B]Other:[/B] (Anything else you feel the need to mention.)

Default Re: RBY: Generation I (OOC + Sign-Ups)

Name: Audrey Rouge
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Version: Red.

Features: Audrey sports wavy strawberry blonde hair, which is about a little longer than shoulder length and is a bit thin and rough to the touch. She is a little short, reaching about 5'3", and normal weight build, neither too tall nor too skinny. Her face is round, and her brown eyes large, giving her a very youthful look.

Clothing: She wears a red coat, with white pockets, and a small Pokéball symbol on the left side. Under the coat is a simple white tanktop. There's also a red long skirt and matching boats, from which baggy and long socks come out of. Lastly, a yellowish bag in which she carries her supplies and Pokéballs. Overall, her outfit is relatively simple.

Quick Paint Doodle of her.

Personality: In spite of Audrey's relatively unassuming-looking appearance, she is actually a very fierce and energetic girl. She's relatively passionate and immediately speaks her mind like nobody's business. As attempts to defy, shock, and awe others. Somewhat of an attention whore.

In spite of what many would assume from such a personality type, she's not much of a loud mouth. She tends to speak her opinions in a regular tone, only yelling and going over people when she gets riled up. Although it is easy to aggravate her, because she's got quite the temper. She tends to get a little physically aggressive and handles her Pokémon somewhat more roughly than most other trainers.

She's also very strange and neurotic. Often she has what is called "word vomit," in which she starts on rambles about random observations of things around her or her interests. She marches to the beat of a very different drummer and is easily distracted. To the point where she can change the subject of her rambles up to five times per minute. At times, she seems out of touch with reality due to her superstitiousness. The girl is very quick to embrace rumours and any other odd things that happen.

Being of the personality type known as "nerd," she also enjoys geekish interests and has a particularly avid interest in the NES, SNES, and N64, all of which she has in her room. This makes her rather competitive, and she treats many things like a game. She loves to explore every single painstaking aspect of all the games she plays, always going for 100% completion. Even if it takes hours on end.

However, she prefers to attempt to come up with original strategies for her Pokémon rather than imitate others. She likes to use "cool, badass-looking Pokémon" and a few obscure ones that nobody really considers. Deceivingly, Audrey's actually not very good at the games she plays. And is only mediocre in skill-level at Pokémon training. Especially catching Pokémon. She tends to scare them away with her loudness.

Lastly, she's also quite the obsessive perfectionist.

History: As a younger child, Audrey's parents didn't really have time or energy to tend to the rambunctious girl. She was always left to a nanny, and to run amuck. She had several other siblings who they seemingly preferred. These siblings were much calmer and more even-tempered. As time wore on, she grew tired of being ignored and became even more rebellious, her favourite thing being to spew out outrageous things just to get attention. Though she was mostly just talk, and never really much of a troublemaker.

This changed when she got the NES, her first video game system, and was immersed with it for days on end. Finally, her parents could have a sigh of relief at the jumping energetic child. In time, the machine became the only thing she really wanted to see. Often, she'd lock herself in her room and forsake contact from others. This machine of wonders, it gave her satisfaction, and a happiness that she had not felt before in her life.

As a result, she never really socialized with others that much. She had a few friends here and there, yet never felt the need to attach too closely.

Finally though, it came time for her Pokémon journey. And she set off on it first with much reluctance. But gaining some quirk and spark in her step, she quickly found it as fun and competitive as the games she had played before. As well as the fascinating rumours that surrounded those beyond the initial ones... especially the rumours.

Party:


Arc/M/Charizard
(A more maroonish orange tint, darker. Also has noticeably sharp horns. Is actually very calm-tempered in spite of looking fierce.)


Nuke/M/Electabuzz
(A particularly vivid mustard yellow shade. Acts oddly feminine.)


Mario/M/Nidorino
(A bit smaller and slimmer than most of those of his species. A bit of a duller grayish shade of pink. Extremely insecure and neurotic.)


Zelda/F/Slowpoke
(Bluish pink shade. Has a sort of crooked tail. Often out of it. Sometimes is staring off into space and does not listen to commands.)

Other: Nein.

Reserving!

Name: Rose Larelse
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Version: Blue

Features: She has light blonde hair and of medium-thin build. Her hair is short, coming down to her chin. She is tall for her age; about 5"8.

Clothing: Wears a black t-shirt and skirt with a pink sash when it isn't sunny (it gets hot when it's sunny); when it is she prefers purple, blue and yellow colors. Always wears a headband, though the color varies.

Personality: Is knowledgeable, serious and cold; tends to be overly wordy at times and a bit blunt, also sarcastic. Loves to psychoanalyze people, and is very mysterious at times. Has been influenced severely by her two pokemon that are able to communicate with her. She does not always understand when people are being kind and will write it out as sarcasm. Will be played out.

History: Rose's mother was very rich, and wanted her daughter to succeed and become very intelligent. She was taught by her mother intensely, and didn't have much of a relationship with her in the end. They waged passive aggressive battles (more like miserable attempts to get closer to her child on her mother's part), such as her mother building an entire mausoleum and stuffing the body of her dead pet meowth, Jaspers. She had a fascination with the paranormal, as well; eventually her mother took to reading Lovecraftian stories with her and keeping on top of the myth of Pokegods. Disgusted, Rose put aside her hobby. Eventually she got sent to a private school in Saffron City to given a very large education. She studied hard (if only to spite her mother), and had only a small collection of friends because she was focusing on her schooling.

She graduated as an honors student and was given a female starter from her mother as a gift; this was accepted as a sign of mockery. Nevertheless, she decided to go on a pokemon journey and also recieved a gastly and drowzee. She preferred the duo over her starter and with the subconscious prodding of her hypno abandoned her starter once she evolved into an ivysaur. She caught her other pokemon on their guidance as well, and once she had filled out her team she started to remember the Pokegods. It was a long time since she had thought of them, but they kept on sticking in her brain. Eventually, she went back to researching them while training to face the Elite Four.

Party: Does not nickname her pokemon at all; she knows they respond to their name and does not care to change that. All of her pokemon except ivysaur are extremely experienced, and she was probably going to be able to beat the Elite Four if she hadn't put that aside in the search of the Pokegods.


Is very mischievious, and often picks fights with the rest of the group. Has slowly but surely become the favorite of the team, as he has told her many things about the ghosts and Lavender Tower telepathically.


Calm and helpful, she transports Rose when she needs to surf.


Was her starter, though has been neglected in favor of newer additions over time. She's cheerful and likes to battle. She looks forward to her evolution, but hasn't realized yet that it will never come.


Is well liked by Rose despite his gruff attitude. Has a lot of battle experience.


Well natured, but somewhat annoying to the others. Has become a team mom sort of pokemon.


Is seriously creepy, but has earned an important place on the team by talking to Rose in her dreams. Sometimes abuses this power.

Other: I sort of just chose the version. Did I accidently pick a wrong version exclusive? If so, I'll switch to Red. Also, yes. This is Rose Lalonde with a different last name.

Default Re: RBY: Generation I (OOC + Sign-Ups)

Reserving as well (putting what I have of the skeleton cause my dad's gonna force me to go to bed):

Name: Genevieve Maxwell
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Version: Yellow

Features: Genevieve is a fairly pale little thing, having been cooped up in her house for quite some time. Her shoulder-length hair is blonde and probably more curly that it should be, and her eyes are light blue, rimmed with dark blue on the edges of her iris. She's somewhat short, reaching to about 5'2, and is of normal weight build as well.

Clothing: Genevieve wears a fairly loose white short-sleeved shirt with a short denim jacket over top, and a short black skirt. Her shoes are white flats.

Personality: Having grown up in a fairly well-off family, Genevieve comes off a tad stuck-up. She doesn't seem to have respect for...well, anyone, constantly mentions her social status and acts as if she's the best thing since Mewtwo. However, deep down, she's a bit lonely, and has a general lack of good communication skills. Anyone who catches her talking to her Pokemon can see that she treats them with love and kindness, perhaps because they seem to be her only friends.

History: Genevieve was born to the owner of a badge-production company, probably the most renowned in all of Kanto. Since badges were always in demand due to the amount of Pokemon trainers, their family was very well off. However, the cost of being one of the wealthiest families in Kanto was a constant fear that their only daughter would be kidnapped for ransom. As a result, her parents forbade her from leaving the house; after all, most kidnappings did occur outside the home.

Thus, the only people Genevieve ever interacted with were her parents and the servants. They were not the greatest conversational partners, with her parents being average paranoid parents and the servants interjecting "young mistress" every five seconds; so Genevieve grew up with almost no communication skills whatsoever.

Upon reaching the age of 16, Genevieve finally convinced her parents that she could take care of herself, so they (reluctantly) let her go on a Pokemon journey. She spent about a month actually training for the gyms before she heard of these "Pokegods." It finally hit her: she could prove to her parents that she could take care of herself by catching one of the most powerful Pokemon! Since then, the new object of her journey was to catch one of these Pokegods, or more if she could.

Party:
Chichu/F
(A chipper little thing, much like you'd expect of Pikachus)
Rinran (F)
(fairly calm, to balance out Chichu's hyperactivity)
Zuzee (M)
(basically just eats and sleeps, and sometimes battles)

Other: You know her ridiculously curly hair that probably should be straighter than it is? She carries a curling iron just for that purpose XD Also, yes, her naming scheme is strange.

Default Re: RBY: Generation I (OOC + Sign-Ups)

Name: Kiri Bayer
Age: 15
Gender: Girl
Version: Blue

Features: Short in height (5", half inch), short light brown hair, brown eyes, retainer

Clothing: Standard outfit: camisole (color varies), skinny jeans (in some shade of blue), puple fleece zip-up, silver flats.

Personality: Kiri is a realist who says it as it is. She tends to be apathetic toward other people's problems. She can sometimes be a bit harsh due to her parents.

History: Kiri grew up in a suburb with her parents, who were, for the most part, not particularly supportive of her ambitions/dreams. When she was twelve she attempted to run away, but was caught. Her parents decided to give her up, and she was adopted by her friend's parents. She began her Pokemon journey shortly thereafter, though her friend decided to stay home.

Party: Charra: Female Chameleon (Has an ambitious and outgoing personality. Is much more of the boss that Kiri, though Kiri, of course, denies it.)
Flyer: Female Pidgeot (Docile and a bit overly meek.)
Dizzy: Male Poliwhirl (Very friendly and sensible, he is quick to point out loopholes when Kiri has a ridiculously insane idea)
Triple: Male Dugtrio (Pretty much psycho, his heads always bite each other and they acts like a soldiers in battle. Never talks to the rest of the team.)
Kicks: Male Hitmonlee (Is a jokester who has frequent "spazzes" in which he kicks Dizzy and Charra)

Other: Kiri is always hungry.

It's a bit short. The lack of detail bothers me somewhat. Is her personality Played Out? If it isn't, you're going to have to put in more detail there. History could use some slight fleshing out. If you can't think of anything, just try to detail some of her Pokémon journey. How it's gone thus far.

DONE!

Name: Riku Emert
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Version: Blue

Features: He has blond hair and sea-green eyes. His hair is mostly short, with it barely covering his forehead and half of his ears. He is 5'10", and somewhat thin.

Clothing: Riku typically wears a simple blue t-shirt-which reaches down to past his elbows-and some brown shorts which are about knee-length. When it is cold, however, he will wear a thick black jacket and some long pants in order to keep warm. He is also often seen wearing a fedora, except in cases where it might obstruct his view of things.

Personality: Riku is typically calm and collected, even in the face of danger. He is also usually kind to people, offering advice and help to generally everybody, although if somebody spurns his advice without even giving it a chance and mocks him he will refuse to help them again. Likewise, he can't stand people who act as if they are superior to everybody else, and will challenge them to a battle if possible to put them in their place.

History: Riku was born and raised in Viridian City. His parents, although not rich, were not poor either, and thus were able to send him to a good local private trainer school. Here, he learned much of what he knows about Pokemon today-and a few myths and legends. He was at first curious to hear about these "Pokegods"-he was just a kid, so he still believed in many myths. After a few years of hearing of these, however, he simply began to dismiss it as just some legends made up by people who yearned for something more.

Once he turned 16, he left his school and Viridian City behind and headed to Pallet Town to start his journey. Once there, he got his starter from Oak-a Charmander who he named Lance, after his favorite member of the Elite 4. From there, he went on to take on the gym leader challenge, obtaining the first 7 badges in only a year. After that, however, he stopped, and instead of pursuing the last badge he decided to obtain Zapdos, the legendary Pokemon, in order to make things easier.

Knowing that it would be a tough battle, he trained up his Pokemon for a few months before heading to the run-down power plant to try and capture it. Finally, after wading through a theoretical sea of magnemite's and magnetons, he found Zapdos in the back and challenged it to a battle. Although 3 of his Pokemon were knocked out during the battle, he managed to weaken it just enough for the Pokeball to finally work and captured it. Simply naming it Zap, Riku then went on and finally got his final badge with ease. Now, he is simply training his team up to take on the League.

Party:

Lance/M/Charizard
(Riku's starter Pokemon, and his closest friend. Calm and level-headed like his master, he knows the limits of his power and (usually) won't try to exceed it. Riku uses him as his flier to travel across Kanto)


Houdini/M/Kadabra
(Captured on Route 24 as an Abra. Thoughtful. He can communicate telepathically in any language, human or Pokemon)


Lucy/F/Butterfree
(Caught in Viridian Forest as a Caterpie. She loves to battle, especially against tough opponents. Riku used to use her as his go-to Pokemon in the beginning of his journey, but has since then slowly decreased in team importance until now, where she is rarely used. Currently the weakest team member.)


Rayna/F/Ninetales
(Caught on route 7 as a Vulpix. Tends to lounge around lazily when not battling, and even while battling she will sometimes take a while to attack if she doesn't find her opponent very entertaining.)


Merri/F/Vaporeon
(Obtained as a gift from a friend. She is somewhat stubborn, refusing to give up on a battle until she is either withdrawn from it by her trainer or completely and utterly runs out of energy)


Zap/Genderless(like all the legendaries), but responds to male pronouns/Zapdos
(Extremely proud of his power. Will occasionally do what he wants to do instead of what Riku wants him to do. Will accept any challenge thrown at him.)

Other: N/A

Default Re: RBY: Generation I (OOC + Sign-Ups)

Name: Dewayix Madison
Age: 17
Gender: Girl
Version: Red

Features: Long brown hair in a ponytail. Eyes are a really light blue. She's average height at 5'3" and at an average weight.

Clothing: Her ponytail peeks out from underneath her red baseball cap. She wears a black tank top and a short denim jacket, along with a pair of jean shorts. Shoewise, she either wears black sandals or black sneakers, depending on what's she's doing.


Personality: Very studious and curious. Interested in the undiscovered. Otherwise, played out.

History: Her father had to move to Cinnabar Island when Dewayix was 12 for his new job as a scientist, so she didn't see him a lot. To cheer Dewayix up, her mother got her first Pokemon, a Squirtle. When she turned 13, she went on a Pokemon journey to obtain badges, and most of all, to see her father again.

She's obtained all the badges, but doesn't want to compete in the Pokemon League.

She lived with her dad on Cinnabar Island until just recently. She heard claims of creatures so powerful, they could beat anything. So, she left the island to find them. How ironic.

Party:


Pluto/M/Blastoise
Her first Pokemon and the one who is first to react when anything tries to harm Dewayix.


Pesto/M/Pidgeotto
Her flyer. Very good in battles despite being weaker than most of the Pokemon in her party.


Lucky/F/Chansey
A "Lucky" chance in the Safari Zone netted Lucky and has been one of Dewayix's go-to Pokemon


Harland/M/Seadra
Her most recently caught Pokemon. Has only had enough battle experience to evolve. Has an attitude.

Other: Nope

Default Re: RBY: Generation I (OOC + Sign-Ups)

Name: Merv Collack
Age: 14
Gender: Male
Version: Blue

Features: Merv stands about 5'4" with a bit of a pudgy build. His eyes are a silvery grey, not menacing at all. He has a wide face, a small button nose, and a large mouth. His hair is dark brown, quite short, so that it barely seems to cover his head. It's very neat though, each piece looking like it was trimmed to perfection.

Clothing: Merv's most recognizable piece of clothing is his sky blue windbreaker, a piece that he wears no matter the temperature. If it's hot enough he'll have it unzipped, showing a white t-shirt with some sort of black corporate insignia plastered on the front. If it get's cold enough the coat gets zipped all the way up, the hood is on, and he'll pull out a light grey scarf that matches his eyes to wrap around his neck and the bottom of his face. He also wears normal, slightly-faded blue jeans with white and grey running shoes. If one looks close enough they will see thick white woolen socks under his shoes.

Personality: Generally Merv is a nice person, and he gets along with most. He never usually contributes much to conversations though. He'd be the one laughing at all the jokes, listening to everybody else, then leaving to go repeat the same process with another group of his friends. He is more intelligent than he appears though, secretly making inferences about the discussions of his friends and using the information to become more in tune with whoever he was talking to, er, listening to.

He enjoys battling profusely, but anything serious isn't his style. He secretly harbours a fear of serious battles, knowing he won't be able to stand the pressure. Thus, Merv does not have a single gym badge. His Pokemon are powerful, and he could probably beat some of the weaker gym leaders, but he has no desire to acquire pieces of metal at the risk of humiliating himself. Many of his friends tell him that he should take the challenge, but they know it's a lost cause. Merv has already traveled the entire region, training without using gyms, so there was no use getting him to go again.

History: Until he was nine, Merv lived in Fuschia City. He had no father. He had died a few weeks before he had been born of some disease or another. Merv had no urge to ask, not wanting to know. His mother had had to raise him and his two older sisters, Bianca and Bridgette, by herself. When Merv was nearly ten his mother, now feeling much older than she actually was, met a man in Pallet Town on a trip there. She got along nicely, they started dating, and eventually Merv's mother had a knew husband. The man, Mr. Brian Valetto, had a large house in Pallet Town, inheritance from one of his relatives, and so Merv's struggling mother quickly moved all three kids and herself to the large house.

By the time everybody was moved in Merv's tenth birthday had come and gone. He had no urge to go on a Pokemon journey as of yet, and his mother felt that ten was a bit too young to leave the house anyway. Eventually, when he was thirteen, his sisters returned from their journeys, and his mother decided that it was time for him to finally leave. From there he traveled on his aforementioned journey, avoiding all gyms but still challenging many to battles. He returned home a year later with a powerful team, and now stays in the town, battling with his friends and generally bored of his life.

Party:

Wartortle [M]
Wartortle's main claim to fame is the agility he has developed. He has no desire to become a Blastoise, feeling that carrying around that much weight would be a waste. The back of his shell is generally lighter than most of his species.


Magneton [X]
Though Magneton has no actual gender Merv refers to it as a she. She is ruthless in battle as she has no real emotion, and Merv sometimes wonders if her ways of battle are a bad influence on his other Pokemon.


Raticate [M]
Raticate also loves to battle, though he isn't quite as mean as Magneton. He is slightly annoyed that his trainer refuses to earn gym badges, but he lives through it. His tail is shorter than those of other Raticates.


Rapidash [F]
Rapidash is not quite as anxious to battle as her team members, though if she has to she can be quite a powerful opponent. According to Merv she is his most trustworthy Pokemon.


Magmar [F]
Magmar is the real cocky type, and she literally will not listen to you if you try and say something about her that isn't exactly nice. She claims she's the best battler on the team, but she really isn't that good, being the most unreliable.


Bellsprout [M]
Bellsprout is the junior member on the squad, not one who participates in most of the battles. He's only a baby, but through training Merv noticed a lot of potential in the little guy. As he's young he's a bit smaller than most Bellsprouts.

Other: There might be a bit of hidden history about why Merv has only five powerful Pokemon and one weak Pokemon that he just caught.

Wait, what?! What about Pokemon Green? It's a Pokemon 1st gen game.

Meh

DONE!

Name: Green Knight
Age: 11
Gender: Female
Version: Red

Features: She is basiclly the girl you play as in FRLG (Who also appears in the manga), except her eyes are a much deeper blue, and she has a small birthmark on her neck.

Clothing: If you don't know Green's outfit, then you haven't played the game or looked at my past avatar. She has a little white hat with a red lace on it. Her shirt is a light blue that is sleevless. She has a green shirt, blue socks, and has sandals. (Sorry if it's pretty short, if you want me to lengthen the desciption, then I can)

Personality: She is very experienced when it comes to battling. She usually doesn't fight with others, but when she does, she fights very hard. Due to her distinct knowledge after only a year of Pokemon journies, most people question whether or not to get some advice. She is a friend of just about everyone.

History: When she turned 10, she got her first Pokemon, her Bulbasaur. Now, a year later, she has gotten many more and has fully evolved her Bulbasaur as well as the rest of her Pokemon. She returned home after only a year to check around her computer. There were vast rumours of Glitches and Pokegods. She felt exilarated! She wanted to look more into it. To find out the mysteries would be the conclusion to her dream.

Party:
Venusaur [F]

Inferno [Unknown]

Articuno [Genderless]

Dragonite [F]

Seadra [F]

Rhydon [M]

Other:Inferno's unknown gender means that there is no way to identify if it's male nor female.

How Green captured Articuno; She Flew to Cinnabar only a few months back to challenge the gym. She found the Seafoam Isles, and wanted to find new Pokemon! She soon got lost, until a bird-like creature came up to her. Green knew it was the legendary Pokemon, Articuno. She knew she had to challenge it to prove worthy of capturing it. She sent out her Inferno, and after a grueling battle that lasted for hours, she threw a Great Ball. Before the Pokemon got inside, it gave a smile. After 3 shakes of the Great Ball, the Pokemon was caught.

ACCEPTED.

Oh and Flower Doll, forgot to mention. Probably just a mistake, but Features is right next to Versions. If you could just make a space there.

Green is Japan-only. Since most of the players on these forums hail from English-speaking countries, where Green did not come out, I decided just to leave it out because it'd be too much of a hassle anyway.

Also, from what I'm seeing thus far, you have Generation III sprites. I'd recommend against using sprites from future Generations if you're going to use them at all, since it detracts from the whole old-fashioned feel we're going for here.
