• Welcome back to Pokécharms! We've recently launched a new site and upgraded forums, so there may be a few teething issues as everything settles in. Please see our Relaunch FAQs for more information.

Open Kickin’ it Kanto Style (DISCUSSION)

Hey this looks like fun! Mind if I drop a character sheet too?
Name: Azul Hartley
Gender: Nonbinary (they/them)
Age: 12
Appearance: Azul stands at 5ft tall, although they tend to look less than that since they rarely stand straight. They have messy dark brown hair that reaches their shoulders, and matching dark eyes. Azul's outfit consists of a green and white striped shirt, dark blue baggy pants and on top of that, a pastel blue sweater that fits them a tad too big. The laces of their black running shoes are somewhat messed up from how many times Azul has stepped on them. A gray newsboy cap sits on top of their head.
Personality: To put it kindly, Azul is a scaredy cat. They get startled easily, jumping at almost any loud noise, and are a bit awkward around people, especially new people. They don't have high confidence and their mood quickly goes down when they think they've made a mistake. Nonetheless, they are a very caring person towards people and pokémon alike, and will do their best to support their friends in any way they can. Azul can be a bit clumsy at times, which often leads to them getting lost and/or tripping over their own feet.
Reason for Travel: Azul's parents encouraged them to travel, saying it will help them become a bit tougher. Azul just wants to travel, catch as many pokémon as they can, and maybe travel to other regions as well.
Hometown: Pewter City

Partner Pokemon: Clefairy
Nickname: Moony
Ability: Magic Guard
Moves: Sing, Pound, Disarming Voice, Copycat

Other relevant info:
Azul's mom is from Johto, she used to learn how to make pokeballs from Kurt. Because of this, Azul's backyard has apricorn trees and she sometimes makes special balls for them.
Thanks to Azul's mom's hobby, Moony is in a moon ball (if that's okay with you).
Azul should wear glasses, since they are quite short-sighted, but they have a bad habit of misplacing them or forgetting to wear them.
When they were younger, Azul got lost on Mt. Moon and couldn't find their way out. They ended up wandering deep in the cave and got attacked by an angry Paras, Moony eventually found them and helped them get out. The experience however left them with a still noticeable scar on the right leg, a grudge against Paras, and a small fear of the dark.
Is it ok if we use later games/remakes of Kanto for our encounters?

Ex. Hoothoot can be found in Viridian Forest in HGSS but not FRLG, RBY (of course), or LGPE. Could we still find a Hoothoot?
I really want to stick to the original games of Red and Blue, if that’s alright with you. Also, have you seen this new update? Holy shit, it’s a little confusing.
Can I join in? I have my character here.
Name: Roxanne Stone
Gender: Female
Age: 21
Roxanne Stone  screenshot.png

Personality: Roxanne is something of a daredevil, often preferring to take the more difficult yet rewarding path to reach her goals. Otherwise, she's very calm, caring and quiet, though sometimes blunt.
Reason for travel: She's something of a fossil hunter

I dont join an rp for a while and now the entire site looks different

Name: Amare Hanyuu
Gender: Female
Age: 14
(credits: me :D)
Personality: Amare is a very kindhearted person. She is often extremely kind, caring and always tries her hardest to help - people love her for it. Yet somehow, she is extremely self-conscious and gets embarrassed by the smallest of things. She becomes more confident if there are more people around, because she thinks that people might not notice her common mistakes if they're distracted with other people. She tries to blend into crowds because of this, making her seem like a very generic person.
Reason for Travel: She isn't too great at anything else, so she thought it would be best just to be a trainer.
Hometown: Celadon City
Backstory: Amare was originally one of the few who lived in Mahogany Town in the Johto region, but when she was 4 her parents one day decided that they wanted to live somewhere more populated, so they moved to Celadon City in Kanto. As a parting gift, Pryce gifted Amare a Swinub which is one of the only memories of her hometown, along with a 'crystal' that her only friend in Mahogany Town gave her. Really, it was just a nicely shaped rock that tricked their little minds into thinking it was a crystal, and now she wears it on a choker.

Nickname: Sniffles
Ability: Thick Fat
Level: 13
Moves: Tackle, Mud Slap, Powder Snow, Flail

Question which might sound a bit dumb: If we catch a pokemon, like Eevee or Slowpoke, would we then be able to evolve it into a form only introduced in a later gen?

Not a dumb question at all! I would prefer that we keep it to the basic eeveelutions, but if you must I suppose it’s alright. Other than that, your character looks good, so you’re accepted.


Previously 'Candle'
Didn't even get a second post up and I'm already quitting. Please excuse me for that. This roleplay just deemed that it began to become a little bit overwhelming the longer I waited to do a second post and now that there are a lot of people it just makes me even more overwhelmed. So sorry to have to say that I'm not doing it anymore!
New 'Charms making this a bit tricky to work with, but gotta thrive with what you got. If anything's wrong, give me a shout.

Name: Ayula Samenilin
Gender: Female
Age: Recently turned 15.
Appearance: Ayula stands at 4'9, with a somewhat tanned skintone and amber coloured eyes. She's got shoulder length black hair with green and purple streaks in, and a circular birthmark just above her right knee. Her typical choice of clothing is a lime green hooded poncho that goes down to her chest (plus a beige t-shirt under it. She's not weird.), as well as a knee length purple skirt. The black boots she wears are adorned with small green ribbons.
Personality: Aloof, yet rather self conscious. Ayula doesn't really get most trends or facts, due to them being 'as complex as a Litten's temper' and is often the black sheep of the flock when it comes to putting danger in her face. She'll never directly flee without Rhombus letting her know she needs to, and even then she remains calm and upbeat all the time. I wouldn't ask, because I don't know.
Reason for Travel: Ayula's family had came to Kanto for a few-months vacation and this league seemed so different from back home that Ayula couldn't not convince her parents to let her go have some fun while they relaxed.
Hometown: Iki Town in Alola. But as said just above, her family is here on vacation.
Both use Gen 7 level up movesets.
Species: Rowlet
Nickname: Rhombus
Gender: Male
Level: 5
Moveset: Growl, Tackle, Leafage
Personality: Ayula's voice of reason and trusted partner. If something goes on that Ayula can't understand, Rhombus is able to dumb it down to her level. Somehow. Often seen as pessimistic and undecided if it wants to evolve at a later time.

Species: Pikachu
Nickname: Hyde
Gender: Female
Level: 5
Moveset: Tail Whip, Thunder Shock, Growl
Personality: Obtained as a trade for a Pikipek Ayula previously caught, Hyde is too hyperactive for her own good. She can't not accidentally zap things to a crisp, but Ayula doesn't mind this trait one bit.

I also plan for Ayula to catch a Bulbasaur, Psyduck and Spearow.
Name: Kelly Stone
Gender: Female
Age: 21
Kelly Stone screenshot.png

Personality: A little bit hot-headed like the Fire-type Pokemon she raises, she is always itching for a battle to improve her and her team's performance.
Reason for Travel: Unlike her twin sister, Kelly is actually more interested in the gym challenge of different regions, she's also a Fire-type specialist

I haven't joined a Pokémon roleplay in forever so lets see how this goes.
Name: Mieczyslaw Murphy
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Personality: Murphy is a usually quiet guy, who rarely raises his voice and isn't very fond of conflict. Despite this however he is fairly skilled at battling. He is pretty shy from living mostly by himself for many years. He likes to sing and read books and has a fear of raccoons. He is gay and has some trust issues and prefers the company of Pokémon over people.
Reason for Travel: Nothing else for him to do
Hometown: Lavender Town
Backstory: Born and raised in Lavender town he was loved by his parents and neighbours and he was happy. But when his parents died in an accident when he was 9 and not wanting to go to an orphanage or a foster home he ran away and began to wander the Kanto region. Pretty early on into his wandering he ran a foul of a group of thugs who were out looking to find Pokémon and decided that he was easy prey to rob. He was saved and protected by Munchlax who became Murphy's best friend and partner. He continued to wander the region, battling people as he went and becoming better at it. He got a Eevee as a gift from a trainer he had beaten and the two became close friends. Around the time he turned 14 his Munchlax evolved and he became an even better trainer, he also decided he wanted to evolve Eevee as well and opted to find a thunder stone to do so.
Starting Pokemon:
Species: Snorlax

Just a quick reminder - any images used in the RP forums, discussion boards included, must be either your own work or something made for you by either request or commission, with proper credit/link. Generators like Picrew are permitted for this sort of thing, but a link to the specific generator used must be provided. I'm seeing quite a few images here, some of which definitely look generated, but without proper credit/links, and this makes my armblades twitch. >>

If you used an image of this sort, please be sure to edit your post accordingly. ^^
Thanks Stellar! To reiterate, make sure to link the source you used to create your character, if it’s not hand drawn.

It’s okay @BlueMew392 , we understand!

@lucarioz I have a few concerns with your character, and grammar. I don’t want your character to be Rank 4 in the World Coronation Series, as that just seems highly unrealistic to me, especially considering he is still merely a teenager. If you could change that to something else, like, he’s challenged the Elite Four before, and lost to the champion, or something more realistically accurate, that would be great. Also, your grammar seems a little inconsistent and off. Would you be okay with writing a paragraph of your roleplay format for me to look at, so I can determine if I let you join?
Also, I forgot to add this, but I find it important!

If you’re battling a trainer that is not officially claimed by a member, feel free to control them! For example, I don’t own the trainer Liam, nor Brock for instance. When battling them, you can control what they say and do, as well as how the battle goes. Obviously, don’t make specific characters with a personality, like gym leaders, members of the elite four, etc. act out of character.
