Pokemon: The Broken World
The world of Pokemon was once a peaceful world full of peace and recreation. Humans were Pokemon trainers and they would compete in arenas to test their skills or show off how well they raised their Pokemon in front of large audiences.
These days are long over.
Humans and Pokemon alike now live in fear of a threat no one thought possible. A weird plague has been spreading throughout the world. Those weak of mind succumb to it, the defiled. The Defiled is an unknown entity that turns Pokemon and human alike into hideous monstrosities. If things go unchecked the world will be reduced to nothing. Pokemon trainers joined forces with legendary Pokemon and have fought back but it seems their efforts are ineffective and the defiled grow stronger with each passing day. The populations of both humans and Pokemon have dropped significantly as the world is slowly decaying. The once vibrant world is now a wasteland full of darkness and a hopeless struggle for survival.
Yet a seed of hope is about to bloom. 40 years after the Defiled entered the world humans have been born with a special mark on their bodies. This special mark allows them to share their souls with Pokemon born with the same mark on their bodies. This special link allows both human and Pokemon to truly bond as one allowing humans to obtain the power to destroy Defiled and allowing Pokemon the power to communicate with humans.
Yet is there any hope left? Can humans and Pokemon survive?
You are one of these chosen humans who must fight the Defiled in order to save all life from destruction. You and your Pokemon must fight together if you want to survive this harsh post-apocalyptic world. To increase you chances of survival you must find others who are like you and join forces.
Bonded Pokemon can not be placed into poke balls since the Pokemon refuses to keep their partner out of sight and it is safer this way.
Humans have resorted to living in isolated barricaded cities, trying to preserve as many Pokemon and humans as possible. Traveling is made tough by the number of monsters created by the Defiled so most people never leave the city.
It is only possible to safely fight these monsters if you are with you bonded Pokemon and vice versa. Separation makes you temporally lose your powers and long term separation once you bonded causes death to both the human and Pokemon. Not to mention these special bonded humans and Pokemon support each other psychologically, share energy as well as pain so both must stay alive to support the other.
The Defiled are the cause of all the chaos, they can take many forms but are mostly seen as a large black figure with multiple red eyes all over its body. If you are touched by one and do not have a special bond with a Pokemon or do not have the will to overcome to insanity, you will instantly turn into a monster. If you have a bond it would take longer to turn into a monster and this process can be stopped by killing the defiled.
The Accursed: These are mutated versions of both humans and Pokemon that come in contact with the defiled and lost the will to live. They don’t have a set form but they slightly resemble what they once were. They only exist to kill and live on to kill any who aren’t cursed.
The remaining humans have gathered into what are known as “Barrier Cities”. The primary location of this roleplay is one barrier city dubbed “Scrap City”. The barriers are produced with the combination of human technology as well as Pokemon energy from electric, ghost, and psychic types powering the barrier 24/7. The cities are divided into three sections. The outer section, where there are farms and lower class people live, The inner/middle section, where the middle class people live, and the center where upper class people live. Those who contribute more the most society, such as doctors, researchers and the military live in the center of the city where advanced research facilities, and hospitals are located. Schools, stores and several Pokemon preservation habitats are located within each section. The center is also home to the Purification Task Force, which leads the research and effort to restore balance to the world. The task force are the ones who discovered the power of the birthmarks through research and who are supporting these brave souls to explore dangerous areas outside to find out the truth and aid in the research.

Name: Hideo Someoka
Birthmark: The Leaf located on his right hand.
Weapon: 1-Handed Sword: Rapier
Personality: Hideo is fairly talkative…to plants anyway; to humans he is somewhat shy or doesn’t really know what to talk about. Since talking to plants naturally helps them grow he gets into the habit of talking to the ones in his family’s farm. He needs to get to know a human or Pokemon for a while before he can open up. His knowledge is about average, but his knowledge in botany is really high compared to others. He isn’t afraid to take charge and is tired of living his life in fear. Hideo is a coward at heart but tires to put on a brave front. The boy is afraid of fighting and about losing his own life or the life of his Pokemon. When he is alone with his partner Pokemon he is more carefree and open about himself.
History: Hideo was born into a world devoid of life, where people and Pokemon feared for their lives. He was always told to be careful and always obeyed the rules set by the city to keep the defiled away and keep the peace. Despite this he tried to make the most out of his childhood by taking care of the gardens that somehow brighten up the desolate city. His family had a small farm with helped grow food vital for the survival of the humans and Pokemon so it was natural for him to be around plants. Because of this his family was poor and didn’t have much to contribute other than to help feed the city but he was happy none the less.
When he turned 16, he met Turtwig who was rescued outside the town after being chased away from his home by the defiled. He befriended the Turtwig but in doing so he created a bond with the Pokemon. The Leaf birthmark glowed on his right hand while the Turwig’s and matched the Leaf birthmark that glowed on the backside of its shell. Suddenly the Turtwig could talk and be understood by humans. He was found by a scientist from the Purification Task Force and taken in for research. It was there that Hideo found out that there were others like him that had similar powers and that they could be the key to restoring the world to normal. Hideo vows to work together with these special humans and Pokemon and help to destroy the defiled and bring back the once lush and green world.
Appearance: Hideo's Appearance
Birthmark: The Leaf located on the backside of his shell.
1st move: Tackle, 35PP
2nd move: Withdraw, 40PP
3rd move: Absorb, 25 PP
4th move: Razor Leaf, 25PP
Birthmark move: Shell Cyclone: Turtwig rolls up into his shell, covers himself in razor leaf and launches himself at an enemy. Once the shell hits the enemy, Hideo runs and kicks Synth back towards the enemy multiple times ending in a whirlwind of leaves tearing apart the enemy.
Personality: Synth is a very talkative and somewhat cheerful Pokemon unlike his partner and seems to do most of the talking. He only wanted to live a happy life so he vows to fight even if he would lose his life. He’d rather die trying than live on like a coward. This Pokemon is very weary and doesn’t trust anyone except his partner, thus when he is alone with his partner he can smile and enjoy himself. Hates those who would abandon others to save themselves.
History: Turtwig used to live in a secret area beneath a forest hiding in fear of the Defiled with his family. When a Defiled raided their special area, he tried to fight but was shielded by his parents who scarified their lives and became cursed. He ran away with other Pokemon promising to stick together no matter what, but when they were spotted by the defiled. Bravely he wanted to stand and fight and avenge his family. These other Pokemon did not agree and abandoned him, breaking their promise. Heartbroken and alone he manged to escape from his dangerous situation ran away until he found a human city where he met his partner.
No notable changes except that he has three leaves at the top of his head instead of two.
