Although Pokemon tends to be a nostalgic memory from when we were kids, I'd like to bring a darker edge to it in this roleplay

Pokemon: The Darker Days Return

In the year 2033, Pokemon are now rarely kept as pets, or used in competitive challenges.
In this age, Pokemon are used as weapons. Extremely valuable, powerful weapons.

A team of controversial researchers began experimenting on Pokemon a few years ago. This team called themselves "Omega." They believed that they could harness the power of Electric Pokemon, and use it to generate power. And so they tried to do just that.
This dangerous experimentation caused an outcry from the members of the public. But Omega simply ignored the direct instructions that they should cease this cruelty immediately.
When they realised that they had no way of harnessing this power, or storing it, they gave up on that train of thought, and disappeared for a while. Everyone thought they had gone for good.

Omega emerged some years later, and they had discovered that they could use Pokemon in order to get what they wanted. They began to capture Pokemon from the wild, and torture them until they obeyed orders.
It started off on a small scale, they would use Pokemon to rob corner stores, and mug people on the street.

But things got worse.
It didn't take long for them to start staging bank heist's, and murdering influential political figureheads.

This behaviour caused a war to break out.
People began to train their Pokemon to fight. They formed their own group, calling themselves the "Crusaders".
The Crusaders grew rapidly in size, and eventually waged war against Omega.
The war started in Saffron City, But soon it was brutally occurring all across Kanto.
In this war, the Pokemon do not compete in a friendly battle until one of them "throws in the towel". These battles are to the death.

Currently, The Crusaders train new individuals in a huge camp, situated where Indigo Plateau once sat, in the Johto league.
It is unknown where Omega train their new individuals, But some are beginning to suspect it is around the ruins of Cinnibar.

This war is one of the most disastrous ones humanity has ever faced. A lot of lives have been lost, both human, and Pokemon. The body count is astronomical, the bloodshed unthinkable...


How will it end?


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

In this roleplay, You will begin you story as a new member of even the Crusaders or Team Omega. This is up to you. (There are two special places on each team, of a higher rank.)
You will start with TWO low-level pokemon, chosen from the list below. During your training, you will have the chance to catch more, before you are thrown into the war, to fight your own battles.

This RP is intended to be like real life, if pokemon were real. Please don't apply if you're uncomfortable with Pikachu bleeding out. >_<

Just wondering do the Crusaders not have a Scientist? (mainly as I was tempted to reserve it).

But otherwise I'm like to reserve a Crusader please.

Also as you've listed us starting with One and Two pokemon in equally bold and large fonts, One in this thread and Two on the main page could you please clarify which is the correct number?

Will there be a posting order? I don't want to commit to an RP that will take off without it's members; I can't be active all-day every-day, so if someone makes 100 posts while I'm gone... yeah.

Oh wow, A lot of posts while I slept over here in England. Haha.
Just submit me characters for Recruit spots, no need to reserve, the spaces are expandable. We are talking members of an army here, after all.

I'm sorry about the confusion. You're allowed TWO starter Pokemon. I must have initially made it one, but then decided it was cruel and stingy. I know the starter Pokemon aren't incredible, so please bare it in mind that you will be able to freely capture new Pokemon and level them up as the RP progresses. This wont take too long.
As for the scientist on the Crusaders, I figured that they wouldn't have one, as they are essentially a rebel alliance/vigilante group. Whereas Team Omega have in place a structured research team. However, there's nothing to stop a crusader recruit being heavily into science and research. :)

Eager to get started! Thanks guys.

Rules about posting will come when we find out how many members we get. I tend not to deploy posting orders, but post limits per day. (This way, people can still have some fluid interaction while others are missing, without getting too far.)

Occassionally, I'm assuming side-stories will form that people can play through without affecting the roleplay as a whole, too.

Hey everyone!
Had a LOT of applications!
Rejected a few people, because they just didn't really put any effort into their character sheets, and didn't get back to me when I asked them to amend them a little. :(

In any case, This is how the teams look currently:

Omega:

Leader: Cadounus
Commander: Child of the Winged
New Recruit 1: peachyme123
New Recruit 2: KONAMICODE
New Recruit 3:
New Recruit 4:
Scientist: Lloyd999



The Crusaders

Leader: Tash
Commander: elemenope
New Recruit 1: peachyme123
New Recruit 2: OtakuD1213
New Recruit 3:
New Recruit 4:

Elemenope- I made your character a commander instead of a leader, hope that's okay!
CookieRaiderEng applied for a leader spot, and got a new recruit spot. I'll PM them to see if they're interested.
peachyme123- You've got two characters, I see. :) That's fine, but can you try not to put too much into one post? Maybe post separately for each character? That would help me out a lot. :)

I'll write up the intro later tonight, and we can get started. New people can still apply whenever. :)

Can't wait to get started with you guys!

Thanks
~Cad
