The Multiverse » Groups » The UPL

The United Pokemon League is the federal government of Ruula and the governing force behind it's military.


The United Pokemon League is the congregation of every pokemon league on the planet Ruula.

The UPL is the federal government of the Pokemon Nation. It enforces federal law, coordinates the defense of its territories, and regulates most anything crossing region borders. Each region's individual league controls the police force and other such more regional affairs. They stand, or at least try to, for all that is lawful and good. The UPL exists to address national concerns including the possibility of war. Most smaller issues are handled by the region's individual leagues. Kanto and Johto share the Indigo league and Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova have individual leagues of their own that act on a region-wide level, maintaining their respective economies. Orre does not have it's a regional governing body, despite being part of the Pokemon Nation.

Unlike the smaller leagues, the UPL's champion/leader is not decided through direct conquest of the previous leader. Rather one must first become the leader of any of the four regional pokemon leagues, at which point they will have the option of challenging the UPL leader at any point and time. The citizens of the pokemon nation often heavily revere their leaders as paragons of their species. It is of strong belief that, in the context of pokemon training, physical strength in battle is a reflection of spiritual and mental strength. One is thought to be incapable of becoming the strongest without both these things. The UPL funds the nation's public school for pokemon trainers, The Pokemon Trainer's Academy.

Anyone who lives on Ruula or trains, battles, breeds, or otherwise spends a significant amount of time on Ruula working with pokemon belongs in this group. Note: This group does not imply the character's are in good standing with the government or that they work for the government, but rather that they are considered under The United Pokemon League's jurisdiction of authority as a government.

Legal Stuff

  • Drinking Age: 20
  • Driving Age: 18
  • Age of emancipation: 14
  • Age of Consent/Marriage: 16
  • Eligible for Military Enlistment: 10
  • Voting Age: 15
  • Drug Culture: Drugs are only outlawed based on how dangerous they are to a ruulan's health, and these laws exist strictly to criminalize the people selling these dangerous drugs rather than the people taking them. Recreational drug abuse isn't all that common compared to the real world.
  • Firearms Culture: Anti-Personnel weapons are extremely rare, as they are far less effective than a decently trained pokemon in practice. As a result, there is no gun culture or strict laws on Ruula.
  • Death Penalty: Uncommon. Typically only invoked for when the alternative is a major risk to to human life.
  • Prostitution: Illegal, but you're unlikely to be hassled for it unless either party is involved in any human trafficking, in which case the UPL is very aggressive in tracking those involved down. Their aggression has only become more extreme since The Hand of Arceus started kidnapping people.
  • Gambling: There are, oddly enough, no laws restricting gambling. Almost anything can be won through pokemon battles.
  • Sexuality: The UPL, for the most part, is an open-minded society. Keep your pants on in public and most people don't pay much mind on who you love. There is a strong romanticism of platonic relationships among Ruula's youth.
  • Cloning: Controlled via license requirement. However, licenses are currently not being given out due to an ongoing moral debate.
  • Slavery: Pokemon slaves are not technically illegal; humans slaves on the other hand...
  • Hunting: Hunting pokemon is permitted, as they are the only source of meat on the planet that doesn't involve cannibalism.
  • Citizenship: Open Door Policy
  • Breeding Compatibility: Ruulans have difficulty breeding with other races, even humans. There is a relatively high rate of stillborn birth among children born to mixed species parents. This is because Ruulans only have what would be considered to be a fraction of a complete soul by most races standards.
