Pokemon: Breaking the Chains (No Longer Taking Signups)

a topic in Interest Checks, a part of the RPG forum.

Thinking about starting a roleplay, but don't have the idea completely finished? Post it here, not in the main OOC forum!

Pokemon: Breaking the Chains (No Longer Taking Signups)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby ClockworkTowers on Thu Dec 16, 2010 9:28 pm

"A prophecy speaks of three heroes who stopped a most sinister plot created by one man, a plot to enslave those friends called Pokemon, and thus restore a Human dominated world to it's original state. The three heroes banded together to stop this man once they found out his schemes. Together with their Pokemon, they beat grunt after grunt, admin after admin, and finally the leader. In the process, they beat all the gyms, and conquered the league. They were true champions of their time...

...this is their story. It's a grand tale of struggles and hardships, but also of bonds and friendships stronger still, but it was important enough that their deeds go remembered to this day..."


This is my latest Roleplay, a story in the Pokemon world that took place years ago. You, the player, will be able to relive every portion of the grand adventure the three heroes did, experiencing the many hardships and bonds they formed and encountered. I'm giving you the chance to fill their shoes.

Now, enough of that backstory...this is a petition of sorts. By posting in this Interest Check, you hereby state your interest, and subsequent participation, in my Roleplay. If I have not filled out a slot for you as one of the heroes or one of the many NPCs, then let me know here as well, and it will be amended.

By posting in this topic and signing on, you also guarantee that you will remain active unless circumstances prevent otherwise. If you cannot continue, let me know ahead of time, and I will make the necessary arrangements. I'll leave it up to you, to decide whether or not you wish to participate in the grand retelling of a story past.

You know I've got your back with this, BB. Always have, and schedule permitting, always will until there's no more story to be told. Made a character for it and everything. I am the E4 to your Champion.

Let's get this show on the road!

Hey, this sounds like an awesome idea! I'd love to play. I'm not sure what character I want to play yet, but I'll figure it out!

Of course I'm in, and I'll be seeing everyone else very shortly.

I'll be your first Gym Leader.

I've always wanted a pokemon rp like this one. I would just be a challenger, or you know the basic Trainer that travels the region, defeating gym leaders and the E4!

I'm interested, I'm very interested, but i'm afraid that i'm not as gramatically and story awesome as you are, BB, and defenately not on QB's level.


I'll join, perhaps as a support role, or a main, or anything :P

But yes, i'll be serious about it.

Well, that was unexpected. Perhaps our combined awesomeness broke the site.

With BB's approval, I'm going to extend the sign-up period by another day so more people see this. (Also, bump.)

Edit: Apparently the extension's not going to happen. Get your teams in by tomorrow, or we're starting without you!

This list is preliminary, but likely final. It will be posted once more (with revision if any are made) in the OOC for this Roleplay once it is up. The complete Pokedex for my Roleplay. If a Pokemon isn't listed here, it will not be obtainable. For more info on any of these Pokemon, or where they can be found, send me a Private Message.\

Edit: The list was update concerning a few inaccuracies that I was only recently notified upon a couple of you joining. I shall post a finished list in the Roleplay's OOC once it is up, as then, it is final.

Shweet. (LOLFrancisreference.) Anyways, I'm curious, do they have those Pokemon Contests where they show off moves still? If so, I wanna make a hyper coordinator with a Ratls, Skitty, Budew, and Piplup. :)

If not, I want a spot with the bad guys! A demented dude with some sort of multiple personality would be cool.

Either way, I want a spot in this. Final Fantasy RPing is still cool to me... but it makes my head hurt now. So, I'm going to RP in a labeled, Kid's Game, for a while.

Oh! The main hero's rival would be cool too.

That... that is a really complex list to look at (numerically pokedex speaking)

But you got to be kidding me. Why aren't pidgeys in the list :( I want a pidgey.
I know most of the 2nd generation by heart, some of the third & forth generation, none of the fifth generation, but i can always look at an online pokedex.

also, why are the legendary dogs listed, but not the legendary birds?

um... when qb said to submit a team, did this also include people who are not Gym Leaders/E4/Champion?

If so, I did plan a team, but I wanna know if I have to post it...

Heard you were looking for a Poison-type user for the Elite Four. Mind if I throw Devon up to snag it?

QB said that the last guy who was filling it dropped out, so I figured I'd put a character in the running, since I'm back from bootcamp and all that jazz.

QB suggested my character Michael Vance as a possible E4 member, he uses Physic/Ghost/Dark. I can make a modified version of him if I need to, send me a PM please with your thoughts.

Here's the nitty-gritty of it all: We didn't have a Ghost leader planned, but we do have a Psychic Elite Four slot and a Dark Gym Leader slot (though the lineup for the latter has been fixed).

As per the rules, you are allowed to indulge in one monster outside of your specialty (examples abound: Lorelei's Slowbro, Bruno's Onix), so Sableye can fit perfectly well on a Psychic team. The rules for the Psychic Elite Four member:

-5 monsters in the battle lineup. You cannot have two of the same monster, and all monsters used are required to have a Base Stat Total (BST) of under 600, so no Metagross.
-Level range is 50 through 52 inclusive.
-One wild card outside Psychic-type is permitted, but not required.
-Dream World abilities are allowed for your monsters.
-You only need which monsters you use in official battles in your character sheet. We expect you to keep their move lists, held items, etc. to yourself.
-About hold items: Anything is allowed, except for Choice items (Band, Specs, or Scarf).

Look up pokemondb.net if you need more information. (fifth generation monsters are go)
