The mist of Pilho
Each and every day a new kid becomes the age where they set out their journey in the Pokémon world. Some go out into the world to catch them all or become the very best like no one ever was. Some people even see it as their greatest call to train them until they are the greatest and strongest Pokémon of their kind, but if they have a really good trainer maybe the strongest of all Pokémon. Some like the cute Pokémon and some like the huge dragons that look like they can destroy houses with just a look. Some care about how their Pokémon feel others just see them as fighting machines. Some travel alone and some bring friends, but in the end they have one thing in common. They are all Pokémon trainers.
The region of Pilho (name might be changed) has for a long time been known as a great place to be a trainer since the share number of Pokémon living in the region will baffle even Cynthia. Pokémon that before had been said to only live in one region have started to pop up everywhere in the Pilho region and scientists and trainers alike are traveling to Pilho to see what’s going on. All that is known at this time is that it seems that N started to travel around the world the mist has started to open gateways into Pilho. For now it’s only reported that Pokémon have showed up, but who knows what the mist might have carried with it.
The elite four and the champion of the Pokémon league has said that Pilho will let anyone travel to it region and that every trainer that wishes to fight them are welcome to do so, after collecting the different badges. They have given permits to scientists so they can research the region and maybe finding some explanations to all of this.
So as Pilho is flooding up with people the town’s people are starting to order in huge masses of supplies so they will have to sell to the travelers. The Pokécenters have undergone some massive changes so that each Pokémon will be healed as fast, safely and that the worst injured Pokémon will receive the special care they need. The pc system has also undergone massive changes. Each Pokédex now has an inbuilt system that will allow trainers to look at their boxes of Pokémon without going to a pc. They will of curse need to go to a pc to change Pokémon, but looking at move sets, stats, abilities and natures can now be done over the Pokédex.
So come to Pilho one and all. Explore the caves, the snowy north, the forests, the mountains, the cities, the seas and the underwater areas and try to become the very best you can be. The Pokémon will be waiting for you and who knows maybe you will be the first to take down the elite four or be the one that figures out the mystery of the fog.
So who wants some pictures ? I sure do :P
What do you guys/girls say ? Welcome to Pilho ! Yes its huge, but I dont think people will mid that much ( I hope not :P ) The two main islands are divided by a great sea. This image will be edited from time to time to add town names and other important names
As you can see this tower has 5 middle areas. In the 4 lower there will be a Elite Four member and in the top one the Champion will be awaiting. Do you think you will be able to get to the top ? or will you be to scared for the height ?
Okay I took the one from X and Y, but look at it ! its amazing !
Location: Conne City
Conne City will be the starting area in Pilho for trainers. This area is close to the sea and not far from a little training ground called Carto Forest (the orange dot next to Conne city). The city has a harbor (the green dot) is by many known as the Connection city. From here every trainer from all regions will take their first steps in the new region.
Location: Alabar town
The first gym in Pilho is located here. Its known for its peaceful feeling and the nice atmosphere. The town also always smells of fresh flowers. This is because of a giant flower field (the green dot) where the only flower growing is the gracidea. Each year right before blooming, this area gets closed off. The reason has not been given, but there is a saying that Shaymin gather there and that people should not disturb them.
these two small come from the same road, but they are completely different. The north one has focused on nature and as little change to the landscape as possible. The other on has turned into a heaven for scientists. All the newest gadgets and technology gets made here . The town has been flattened out and tall buildings stand towering towards the sky.
Location: Spiral Mountain
The name comes from the trail that is used to get to the top of the mountain. You have to go around the whole mountain in a giant spiral to get to the top. It said that when your on the top you can see the other part of Pilho.
Location: Sonnel Town
This town is must used as resting place for travelers that have just been to or are going to Spiral Mountain. Because of this the town has a giant 5,5 star hotel. (yeah we went there. It’s that awesome) The town is located right under Coralo City.
Location: Coralo City.
This is a rather big city that has a huge coast area and is located right above Sonnel Town. This area sends people on boat trips to two of Pilho’s biggest Islands.
Location: Anthara city

Not much is going on in Anthara. Its mostly a pass trough town, but some people like to taste some of the local Coombee honey before they go further.
Location: Trumpet Mecca (lower left corner)
A main hub for trains going across the region, this industrious mecca is constantly making advances in transportation and technology. Trumpet Mecca has produced more notable scientists than it can handle. The Pokémon in the area are ones that have been attracted by the electromagnetic currents, a common Pokémon to see are magnemite. The homes are usually outlandish, with antennas and whirling gears on the outside. The area also holds a Pokemon gym.
Location: Kispen Town (the first town to the left)
Kispen town also has another name “the Fight kingdom” This is a gathering place for people that like fighting pokemon as it has the highest population of fighting pokemon ever recorded. Another huge part of Kispin is the huge Kispin Tower. This is where the burial ground for loved pokemon is contained ( the orange dot a bit down the road and to the left).
Location: Mitrin City (the city to the far left)
A quiet city and if you didn’t know of it you would not have gone here. This place holds a gym and nothing else, but its said that in the night the gym leader is seen speaking to someone or something.
Location: Kelador Moutains ( the tree towns to the north)
This area is divided into three minor towns and the 2 lower ones serve no other purpose then as a resting place. The last and highest town on the other hand is the town of Kelador. Here the kimono girls have settled down and they hold ceremonies to both Lugia and Ho-ho on regular events. Both pokemon have shown up on several occasions. The kimono girls are the holder of the “sacred badge”. It’s a wing of Ho-ho and when given to a pokemon they will be cured no matter whats wrong with them.
Location: Roselia Queendom (the on under the green dot)
A beautiful castle with high spires sits in the center of the citadel. Originally the monarchy living in the castle ruled the Queendom and it's surrounding lands but as time went on the people outgrew the need for a monarchy. The change from one governing system to the next was surprisingly easy and nonviolent. The current Queen is still a respected figurehead to this day and takes part in the discussions of the government. The Pokémon who reside here, and which the Queendom was named after, are mainly Roselia.
Location: Sundrop Metropolis (down to the left)
Atop a frozen plateau a metropolis has made it's home, the buildings rising high into the sky. Many statues depicting Bellossom, Sunflora and Venasaur sit on the top of the roofs of the buildings as if to call upon the warmth of the sun. The metropolis is home to hundreds of hot springs that many people come to relax in. The citizens have built inns and hotels on top of the hot springs to create profitable income.
Loaction: Goulding Mines (down to the right)
Goulding Mines sits over the mouth of a huge mine pit, the only thing keeping the city from falling down into the recesses of the earth are the hardened girders of steel and titanium that are frequently repaired and up kept by the master metal-smiths residing in the city. The mines below are filled with precious jewels and Pokémon fossils that the citizens harvest for income. At several points in the city are lifts that allow people to go down into the mines. People who have visited the mine have tales of ghosts following them. This mine also as made a road to Albara town, but there a few that dear to pass through.
Loaction: Starmine Metropolis (to the right)
This ritzy city has been named after the starfish-Pokémon who wash up on the nearby shores at every sunrise and sunset. The sprawling metropolis is the center of trade in Southern Pilho, with more PokéMalls, Hotels and Cruise Ships going out of it's classy ports than a person could ever hope to visit or see. Starmine Metropolis has played up their "star" theme by imposing beautifully drawn star designs all over the city: on the walkways, on buildings, even the city is in the shape of a star.
Loaction: Amethyst City (to the north)
Named after the gigantic, amethyst colored coral deposits that have grown in this area. At night they let out a shimmering light, causing the city and it's surroundings to become amethyst colored. The phenomenon hasn't been explainable to this day. This city is popular because of the coral deposits and the casinos that populate it. The most industrious casino was carved into the largest coral deposit near the ocean.
Well that carried on longer then I had meant to, but I think you get the direction we are going in. It’s a Pokémon rp what do you want me to say? It’s going to involve Pokémon; it’s going to have a bit of mystery and hopefully hours of fun for everyone. Pokémon from all regions and all generations will be to find in Pilho
So what do you say to some quick facts about this rp
* I’m the GM, but I will be picking out one or two co-gm(s). So if anyone wants to be co-gm just pm me.
* I have not set any number for how many trainers there will be and how many people I will involve in this role-play at all, but I will tell you this. This will not be a role-play that is open forever. There will be a limit to how many people that will be allowed to join in.
*you can play ether off the following roles:
-Gym leader or elite four (people that want to be elite four need a bit more in their cs then the normal gym leaders. Just to make them feel a bit more special)
*You can be someone getting their first Pokémon or you can be someone that already has a few, but I don’t want to see people picking legendary Pokémon in their teams or lvl 100 Pokémon’s. Other than that you’re pretty much free to pick and mix.
-If the Gm or Co-Gm says something you listen to them.
-I don’t want one line posts.
-I don’t want speed posters that take up page after page with just themselves.
-If YOU feel something should be brought up or that something needs to be changed just say it. I’m a nice guy. I don’t bite…to damage
-You can make more than one character, but not more then 3
-Battles can be done in collabed with the headline ( name vs name )
- Feel free to talk in the occ. I find that a good occ makes people more active and that the rp is way more fun.
-I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. To catch them all is my real test, to train them is my call (admit you started to sing the song )
-Trainer and scientists
Work place (if any):
Pokémon (try to fit with the theme of your work place):
-Gymleaders and Elite Four
City the gym is in ( for gym leader):
Floor of Elite four tower (for elite four member):
Type of Pokémon used:
Questions that have been asked and then answered:
How many Gym Leaders have you thought up for Pilho? What are their types, if you've already set them in stone? If not, are we allowed to make our own gyms up entirely? Do you have towns/cities set up already for the gyms to be in? Or are we going to create our own cities?
Well as I said in the Cs for the gym leaders ( I understand that it might be hard to understand.... im new to this) you pick what type how you want your gym to be. People that are gym leaders are given the option to create your own town from the bottom and up, so make your own town if you want to. I have not set a number yet, but 8 gym leaders might be to much. I will see how many people want to play gym leaders and come more back to the number of gym leaders.
As for the Elite Four, the questions are somewhat the same as Gym Leaders: Do you have specific Elite Four members you've thought of, or their types? Are they set in a specific city within Pilho? Or an area? If so, what is the area like?
Same deal as gym leaders. Pick your own type that you want, but dont have the same one as a gym leader or another Elite Four member. As for their location it will be on a small island out in the sea. This will be a a tower that for each Elite Four member the trainer defeats they will move one floor up. I will get back to how it looks with a picture later (added), but as for now I hope that explains things good enough.
If we played Townsfolk, does that mean we can't raise pokemon? Are there certain positions Townsfolk fill? PokeMart? PokeCenter?
For the towns folk ofc they can have Pokemon. What fun would a pokemon rp be if they could not have pokemon ? But as for jobs you dont have to work at these places as you have said. I am more then open to playing these people if nobody else wants to. So if you want to be a guy that sells honey and has a million combees flying around his house then sure go right ahead. You could even have you very own vespiquen to control them :P
If we played Scientists, does that mean we work with pokemon as well as machinery? Would we have more of an "In-the-Know" aspect to our roleplay than say, Trainers and Townsfolk who would be left wondering at events unfolding?
I will answer this one very short. Yes and yes.
Will you be having people separate into groups to play with each other, or is it more of a free-roam RP?
This is free roaming and you can go alone or you can go with friends. I will not control that. Its totally up to you if you want to go solo or together.
Will I be controlling the champion?
Yes I will
Are there going to be any Team Rocket type villains?
Well since when was there a region that didn't have a type of villains ? Thats right folks ! There has been zero of those so therefore ofc there will be someone being a prick about something and trying to do something evil or maybe just really really annoying (looking at you team plasma !)
If we played alone, would you be more involved as the GM in our stories?
You can bet your pichu on it ! Pleas dont bet pokemon... I think thats just wrong.
Can we keep pokemon in the pc box system ?
THE EXP SYSTEM: "Points Bank System" not made by me. All credits go to the real maker Blitzatrix
In each fight there will be a total of 4 points given out to Pokemon that defeat another Pokemon and there will also be given 1 point for taking part in the fight. This is how our Exp system works (no we dont have lucky egg or exp share) and me the Gm will say how much is needed to lvl up (im still working on those exact mathematics)
Battles will be done as colabs, but there is an option to use Pokemon Showdown. If people cant reach an agreement about a battle they will use the pokemon showdown. This is so we dont have massive fight like the following:
Person 1:I won !
Person 2: no you didnt ?
Person 1: are you stupid ?
Person 2: you mom is stupid ?
As you can see this is going nowhere ! So this will be a "You must battle this out in showdown" senario
