Introduction

The Story thus far:

The Gym Leaders and Elite Four of the Kyushi Region are meeting to discuss an interesting new threat. A new group has been seen terrorizing the resident trainers of Kyushi. This new group is collecting information on the whereabouts of some of the most powerful legendary pokemon, their plan is unknown, but it can't be good. So far they have managed to capture Zapdos, Darkrai, and Latias. Although the capture of legendaries is horrible, the worst part is that the world renowned pokemon master, Red has been spotted assisting team Koden in their attempts to capture these legendary pokemon, however the pokemon under Red's command are not the ones he used in his prime.

Perhaps the most terrifying aspect is that legendary Kanto Gym Leader Blue attempted to stop Red in during the attempt to capture Zapdos. Eyewitnesses claim that Red held up a ball, that appeared to be a pokeball and Blue simply stopped fighting and assisted team Koden. It is unkown how this happened but it is clear that team Koden is dangerous, and they have the backing of two of the strongest trainers alive today. Can the Kyushi gym leaders stop them before it's too late?

Team Rules

As Gym leaders you will have type based teams.
You all have six pokemon at the beginning of the RP of course you are allowed to catch new pokemon as we RP.
In order to handle challenges to your Gym (probably won't happen much in the RP, but we need to keep up appearances. Gym leader's teams must have 3 pokemon that correspond to your selected type. The other three are open to your choice.


The Elite Four and Champion have different rules.
They have the option of following the Gym leader type based rules or you may choose to have a varied type team.
If you take the second option your team MUST have a central theme built around.
Examples include: Weather, Trap Passing, Gravity, and Trickroom.

You will not be allowed to use any mega stones, and thus no mega pokemon. Mega stones are freaking rare and we are nowhere near the Kalos region. However if you can convince me that your character came across a mega stone, and I approve of how it adds to your team as a whole, and I am in a good mood, you might be allowed to have on.

You may have at maximum 1 shiny pokemon on your team, they are rare as balls, but they do exist. Just make it special please.
Types may be used twice, so long as they are not the sole focus of one team. (the types used by a trainer specializing in two types, the way shishio and I have, may be used by another trainer so long as they do not repeat a type combination)

Toggle Rules

1.Keep any and all romance PG-13, if you feel the need to get kinky take it to the PMs.
2.. No God-modding- this covers auto-hitting (to some extent) and writing yourself to be the best battler ever. You are not, there is always someone better than you. Beating Grunts easily is one thing, defeating a team Koden Elite and Exec is not easy, it takes skill.
3. This Roleplay will focus heavily on pokemon battling as well as story telling, please understand legitimate pokemon battle strategies, and vary your attack techniques.
4. Posts, at a minimum, should be two paragraphs or so. No one-liners, please. (This means at least 200 words, although I would prefer to see around 500-800 if possible.)
5. Literacy is a must. We're all adults here so let's write like we actually know what we're doing.
6. I reserve the right change the rules at my leisure.
7. Please say hi in the OOC before creating a character.
8. You are an average human being with no supernatural powers or anything of the like. No one in this world has supernatural powers, that's just silly.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

I'm still adding bits and pieces there, but I'm hoping to have it finished soon. Work has me a little lacking in the urge to write for deadlines. Not that there was a deadline here, but still. xD

Anywho, expect it to be finished soon.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

So I have accepted both Byte and Shishio's characters without histories because they both have everything else completed. Shishio and I have talked about Nissa's history and I know how it's gonna go down and that he will write it in when he can. I trust Byte to write out Tobias's history before we begin and I'm not worried.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Short is fine. Venom's was long cause he thought i challenged him to write it that long. So just write up whatever feels right. It's just the to give us an insight into the character and to give me a chance to see some writing out of people I've never rped with before.



Also neko? Are you all here?

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Still here, lax. I've been kinda stuck with Tobias' history. For some reason I know what I want to write, but I feel like it's going to be too short. At least, compared to everyone else's history so far. xD

But, yeah, still here. :)

Re: The Kyushi Problem

I just wanna make sure no one has given up on this one, I do really wanna get it going, just waiting on the characters to get in and then we'll get going. I'm not gonna wait til we fill out the full cast of gym leaders and and elite four, those of us who are here should be good enough to get this rolling.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

currently debating between environmental extortion (weather, terrain usage). And rolling just straight up Ice/Water team...granted to an extent the two ideas are compatible/identical.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Originally I wanted the Gym leaders to have either 3 pokemon sharing a type and three of their choice. The elite four I wanted to make sure they had an overall theme.

I changed my mind and as long as your team has an overall theme to it, you can do what you want. For example, although all of Sebastian's pokemon are Fire/Grass, the theme of the team is Sun Abuse.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

woah woah woah Neko-senpai? Boku wa Shishio no Kouhai. (dear god I know I broke a grammar rule there)

Also I thought our team set was more strict...kinda frees things up. Was debating of essentially rolling Ice/Water since I thought we were somewhat following the whole mono thing the games follow...but now we're talking fun things.

Also you know damn well if I'm rolling Ice I'm grabbing me a 32 turn min Walrein stall.


I don't care if I end up Elite Four or Gym Leader

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Hate wash tom.....

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Yup. Gotta rock that ice coverage. You need stab ice beam, or stab hydro pump to beat him. Again, fucking Wash-Tom. He's arguably the best Pokémon in OU right now. His counters, can still get ko'd by him. He's a monster.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Even chlorophyll venusaur can't beat him. Unless i give him hp ice but that means i can't sleep powder/ growth. Which is tank special sweeper saur's best set.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Yeah... Gliscor kinda fucks his shit. But hey, it's not Charizard's fault, if itsn't immune to poison, entry hazards, or earthquake or any combination thereof, Gliscor wrecks it. It's just how Gliscor is. Throw Wash-Tom into the mix and you get yourself a powerful offensive core. Volt-Turn is just strong right now.

Also, get this, Talonflame is useful! Put him in sand teams to answer grass typed threats. He has a choice banded, priority Brave Bird. That's right, it's a priority speed, 180 base power move, off of 425 attack. Have you shit yourself yet? Combine him with. Wash-Tom, Excadrill, and either sand enducer. Let the havoc ensue.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

But the idea.... A good volt turn team wrecks everything. ... especially my sun supported solar power Charizard... damn gliscor....

Re: The Kyushi Problem

I did!'t even say the extra mean stuff, which is just throwing in utility counters so you always have an answer for something they've got. Like Washer Forme Rotom, any Lucario set, Mienshao, Sun Supported Infernape, Terrakion, Magnezone, Conkledurr, Mega Gardevoir, Gengar, or Gyarados. Oops...

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Freaking double post...

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Shishio shishio shishio, why most you recommend the one set my xy sun team can't destroy. (Not the one Sebastian uses but my real team. Freaking volt turn... i hate it.


Now by all means anyone interested can feel free to use it. I just personally don't like that my team actually has to try to beat it.... lol

Re: The Kyushi Problem

For those of you in need of hilarious team ideas, fear not, for I, the single greatest repository of all Pokémon knowledge, bequeath to you, a gift: Volt-Turn/Baton Pass.

The idea is simple. All you so is maintain extremely harsh offensive momentum with the moves volt switch and u-turn. You boost these lovely moves with baton-passing strategies, and you create a team that shreds through anything like a chainsaw. Lemme give you an example of an offensive core form such a team; a setter/lead, a physical sweeper, and a special sweeper.

Image
Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
EVs: 252 spdef, 176 def, 80 hp
Trait: Poison Heal; Careful Nature.
~Roost
~Stealth Rock
~ U-Turn
~ Taunt

Standard bulky Gliscor, eh? WRONG! With a decent attack stat, access to some of the best stalling moves in the game, and the ability to turn, Gliscor becomes the ultimate hair-pulling-out annoyance! Not only will he have your opponents enraged beyond all belief, but this nasty little devil also has the keen perk of setting you up to sweep. Taunt keeps you from being screwed over by entry hazards, and can help you to out-stall tankier threats. What's worse than having a taunted, poisoned Infernape lead? Having it take a chunk of damage and then facing down a scarfed jolteon, or even worse, a pursuit metagross. What's even better is that u-turn prevents him from becoming complete taunt bait, and allows you to maintain forward momentum even on a bad trade.

Image
Jolteon @ Expert Belt
EVs: 252 sp.att, 252 speed, 4 hp
Trait: Volt Absorb; Nature: Timid
~ Volt Switch
~ Shadow Ball
~ Hidden Power (Ice)
~ Focus Blast

This set on Jolteon absolutely wrecks. Everything here hits incredibly hard, and has almost flawless super effective coverage. Not only can you switch him in on electric attacks, and negate some earlier damage, but you can immediately threaten almost everything in the game with blistering speed, and devastating special attacks. There's not much else to say here. Jolteon is a beast.

Image
Scizor @ Choice Band / Life Orb
EV's: 252 att, 176 sp.def, 80 speed
Trait: Technician; Nature: Adamant
~ Bullet Punch
~ Pursuit
~ U-Turn
~ Superpower/Sword's Dance

This set is one of the best revenge killers in the game. It's excellent natural bulk, fantastic typing, and massive attack stat, combined with hilarious powerful synergy via Choice Band, Technician, and Bullet Punch make Scizor a very dangerous set. Depending on whether you want to sweep or guarantee the kill, Scizor performs well in either slot, hammering fleeing Pokémon with technician boosted Pursuit, and/or outspeeding threats with his powerful, STAB Bullet Punch. Ever since his creation, Scizor has been a devastating presence in Pokémon and it's not just because of how badass he looks.

Your last three slots would be filled with tanks/utility pokés that can baton pass some nasty stuff like sword's dance or belly drum for Scizor, and/or nasty plot/tail glow for jolteon. Throw in some entry hazard support for residual damage, a spinner who can clear the runway for your pokés to take flight, and you'll have a nasty team that is hyper aggressive, capable of sweeping the match out from beneath your opponent's feet.

Re: The Kyushi Problem

Did you two want gym leader or elite four spots?

Re: The Kyushi Problem

@Neko, Kyaa~! Konnichiwa Neko Sempai~! X3

As for weather, there are a couple of fun things you could do. Assault Vest T-Tar is a better special tank than blissey. The only reason she still outclasses him is her ability to softboiled. Otherwise, Specially defensive, assault vest t-tar takes 17% from a modest, spec'd Latios's Draco Meteor in the sand. You read correctly. 17%. Also, since they fixed/nerfed weather duration, Excadrill gets to play some more. Throw in your usual cadre of skarmory/gliscor, lucario, garchomp, etc. and you get some pretty fun times.

Also, since they fixed Drought/Drizzle, D-Dance, Swift Swim, physical attacker Kingdra is back. Him, coupled with choice banded, Scizor can sweep teams. Toss in a special Jolteon to abuse that thunder and absorb electric attacks and your core is looking solid. Also, since fairy is weak to poison, black sludge/drain punch/dry skin Toxicroak is fucking BACK! All the health forever! Thanks to rain dish, Ludicolo and Tentacruel make for pretty hilarious stallers in the rain, and forteress, the best setter in the game, loves the reduction of fire damage. All in all, as usual, rain got all the good toys. :P

Hail is still lawlsy as fuck, but it hasn't gotten anything really outstanding as far as new shit. Walrien is the undisputed king of stall, blizzards from Spec'd Glaceon are still hilarious, and Froslass is still a real bitch.

You have lots of new toys to choose from, so do some research, and ask for my help if necessary. XP
