WARNING: Please don't read everything I wrote. Just everything that's relevant to your character or relevant at the point it becomes necessary to know about certain topics. Trust me, your eyes will bleed if you don't.
Your story begins as many Pokemon stories begin, and how everyone else who's involved into this story will begin, by waking up in a unfamiliar location.
This isn't your bed. This isn't your room. And you're pretty sure these aren't your pyjamas but you're a little too preoccupied to care.
You find yourself in a small room, with clean white walls and a unmarked white linoleum floor. The bed is a small metal cot with a lump mattress. The only other furniture in the room is a small wooden nightstand with nothing on it.
Searching in the night stand all you find is an outfit, an outfit strangely matches the one you wore in your Pokemon game!
Leaving that aside for the moment, you proceed to check the two doors of the room. One is locked, the other leads to a small bathroom. The bathroom is small too, with a plain porcelain toilet and sink, and a shower embedded in the wall.
Once returning to the bedroom you here a voice come from some where. At first it seems to come from all around you but then you realize it came from the speaker in the ceiling that you failed to notice before.
"Hello there!" says the voice, "Welcome to the world of Pokemon! I am Professor Palm. People call me the Pokemon Professor. The world you are currently occupied in is inhabited by creatures called Pokemon! Of course, I don't need to tell you what a Pokemon is. You have been chosen selectively because of your love for Pokemon!
"This is the city of Evodeaux and you are its new citizen. Congratulations! I am sure as a new citizen you will help to make the city grow and prosper. It is our duty to make the city, no the world, sparkle with creativity and love. That is our ambition. I personally would like to thank you for volunteering for this project and hope that you a wonderful time in Evodeaux City."
The speakers cut out at that point. You would have yelled at the professor that you didn't volunteer and you want to be sent back home, but you're pretty sure it's only a recording.
You then see a Pokedex being slipped under your door. You bang on the door asking whom's ever on the other side to let you out but they seem to have left already. You pick up the Pokedex to discover its not actually a Pokedex. The cover of it says "Citydex" and instead of any Pokemon information it gives you details on the city. What are the laws, the jobs available, where to get a starter Pokemon, a map, etc.
You look through it a bit until suddenly you hear the door click. You test the knob and the door is now unlocked!
What do you do next?
Fulfill your job objective and be the very best like no one ever was.
And (if you want)
Stop the one's responsible for your, and everyone else's, abduction and find a way to get back home.

2. No thieving or selling of Pokemon.

Starter Pokemon will be released at the Pokemon centre. There you will be given a choice from three starter Pokemon chosen at random and given a trainer card.
SpoilerObjective: Beat the Elite Four and Champion. How: Train your Pokemon by battling trainers in many locations like the Battle Centre in the Pokemon Centre. Compete in tournaments held at the dome.
SpoilerObjective: See at least 150 Pokemon, owned at least 75 Pokemon. How: Go to the lab and pick up a Pokedex, make sure you also see the PC box manager.

Attend tournaments and concerts as attendants or competitors.
SpoilerObjective: Have all five Master Ribbons (Cool, Tough, Cute, Beatiful, Smart). How: Attend contests. Give your Pokemon treats made of berries (make berries at conservatory, make treats in contest halls). Teach Pokemon moves and buy props (Department Store).

SpoilerObjective: Own $50,000. Steal at least fifty Pokemon. How: Sell Pokemon. Play at the game corner. Pick pocket. Burglarize places.
Creativity is rewarded in this game. If you want to win at anything you must be clever. For instance, if you just say "Charizard use Flamethrower" is more likely to miss then "Charizard use flamethrower at his feet then slam him down when he jumps up."
The same goes for every aspect of this game You want to do well at anything, you have to come up with good ideas.
Tournaments will be consolation and will be held at the domes regularly. Pokemon will be healed after every match except in Champion Dome.
Rookie Dome: 2-3 opponents.
Minor Dome: 3-4 opponents.
Element Dome: 4-5 opponents.
Major Dome: 5-6 opponents.
Champion Dome: No tournament, but will fight five opponents.
Each tournament will have its own reward. Some times there will be money, sometimes items. Every day a star tournament will be held. A star tournament will have the reward of a star badge which help in getting to new domes, more available items, and controlling your Pokemon.
If you get first place you will get a whole star, if you get second place you will get half a badge, third place you will get a fourth a badge and anything below that you will get a booby prize.
If you have two halves you can put them together to get one badge and the same goes for the fourths. If you are having trouble getting another half a badge (or three fourths of a badge) you can always buy pieces of badges at the department store (be advised you cannot match bought badge pieces with each other unless at least one piece was earned, or buy a whole badge at the store).
If you have earned two badges you can no longer get badges at the rookie dome.
If you have earned four badges you can no longer get badges at the minor dome.
If you have earned six badges you can no longer get badges at the element dome.
If you have earned eight badges you can no longer get badges at the major dome.
Tournaments available currently:
Splash Tournament - Rookie Dome - Prize: $1500
Normal Normal Tournament - Rookie Dome - Prize: $ 5 Oran Berries
Star Tournament - Rookie Dome
Contests are tests between four Pokemon to show off their abilities in ether toughness, cuteness, beauty, coolness or intelligence. All contests are composed of three parts.
Show off your Pokemon's appearance. Enhance their looks with berries, groom them (available at South West Daycare), increase happiness or dress them up.
Have your Pokemon do something. Use a combination of moves to make a display, make them act like another Pokemon, make them preform a scene from a play, or have them dance.
A sort of battle between all four contestants. Pokemon will use their moves against each other to make each other look bad, while at the same time showing off their moves for the judges.
A Pokemon can't not proceed to any higher level contest before they have won in the previous level's contest.
Ribbons will be rewarded as prizes, these will help control your Pokemon as well as make more items available. Along with a ribbon you will get cash money and a item. If you get second or third place you will get an item or money.
Contests will take place once a week.
November 16, 2013
Berries will grow over several days. To get the most amount of berries you must make sure to water them as they are required (check the tag of your berry to see how long and how often they must be watered). Making mulch out of the berries will also help.
Treats of berries can be used to increase conditions. The power of their effect will depend on how you choose to cook or prepare them (this may take trial and error). Combination of berries as well as how long you plan to cook it will play part. There is also an element of chance involved.
Breeding is simple. Get Pokemon of the same family and have them have children together. It can take several hours for a baby to appear or days. You can get more Pokemon at the Trading Centre in the Pokemon Centre or in Middle Park. At the Trading Centre you can also get a random eggs once every two days.
Hatching eggs involving running up and down streets, careful though, some people may want to battle or you may lose the egg in a crowd. Talking to people may also help, you may even get tasks or advice from people you talk to. Keeping an egg warm and in contact with many different Pokemon will also help the process.
Pokemon mature faster then humans so getting them to adulthood should be no problem. Babies and children Pokemon must be taken cared of. They must be feed, played with, and loved in order to grow up. Children Pokemon are easier to take care of but baby Pokemon grow up a lot faster. Teenage Pokemon are not as likely to listen to you. You must form trust between you and them or prove to them that you are the master. Battling and evolving the Pokemon will make them grow up faster.
Crime is pretty high in Evodeaux City. As a criminal it's your main goal to gain as much money as possible. Pick pocketing is one way. It can be difficult, and if you're caught you'll need to run away very quickly. It's best to teach your Pokemon how to steal and own Pokemon that you can carry you away very quickly.
Almost any Pokemon can steal (even if they don't know Thief, though it helps if they do) however you'll have to teach them how and ether form a strong enough bond that they'll want to steal or make them have no moral qualms with doing so. Some Pokemon have no moral qualms to start with or really high morals, you can see this on their stat sheet.
Burglary is the same for the most part, except it requires more planning. A good tip is to never invade a place without a plan.
To ride a Pokemon you have to teach them to follow your commands. The more comfortable they are with carrying you the faster and more skilled at turning they will become. They will become more comfortable with you if you have a strong bond and the more you ride with them. Only some Pokemon are ride-able, if a Pokemon is too small or body's are shaped too oddly you won't be able to ride them.
Stealing money, items and Pokemon are ideal. If you want to sell Pokemon you'll have to find places to sell them and that can be difficult. I won't tell you where just be sure to talk to right people and they'll direct you to the right place ; )
Gambling is very tricky but can be very lucrative if done right. The slots are mostly up to chance but there is a puzzle machine hooked up to each slot machine. If you can win the puzzle your chances on the slot machine will go up. Only one puzzle will be allowed for each game.
Lottery is up to chance too. However, the more traded Pokemon you have the more your chances will go up. Only one lottery ticket is allowed a day (the ticket is free). Prizes are as follows:
1 digit: Ultra Ball
2 digits: PP Up
3 digits: EXP. Share
4 digits: Max Revive
5 digits: Master Ball

Food and Sleep:
Food is an element here but not one you have to do. All people and Pokemon in the city are giving food so long as they have a job, though its probably not the tastiest stuff you'll ever eat. If you choose to buy food in the city it will be tastier and give you and your Pokemon more energy.
There is a certain limitation of things you can do in a day before you get tired. As you and your Pokemon become more skilled you can do more things in a day but until then their are only two ways to get more energy: food and sleep.
Sleep is a necessary element. Sleep, like the untasty food, will be automatic and will not require you to rpg it for it to occur. However, a softer bed will make you more rested as will rp your character to sleep.
SpoilerDecoration your room is very optional. It may slightly make your Pokemon more happy if they come into your room, and even more so if the room is furnished. Decoration items work like real items and can be used if you have idea what to use them for. Also, if you are planning to escape town and overthrow the people running this city, you might want to act like you don't want to leave by seeming comfortable in your place. There are other minor bonuses but those are secret.
SpoilerRight now time in the game is flowing concurrently with real time. This is only temporary so I can know where everything is at. As we get this game into motion we'll stop using real time and move into a game time which will be must faster.
It's a good idea to get to know your fellow players and work together with them. Most of the people in the city are, well, I won't give it away but let's just say they are firmly loyal to Professor Palm and this city.
Now, some of the npcs you meet will be trainers just like you, people who have be taken here against their will. Other npcs will say they are here against their will but really they are plants designed to thwart any plans you have. It's a good idea to team up with npcs because it increases your odds, but should also watch out for moles.
Also, if you like, you can PM me and ask to be mole if you so choose to.
If you're short on cash you can get a part time job. I won't tell you where you can find them (good idea though is just to go into buildings and ask for a job). This will get you extra cash.
Minor jobs involve doing mini game activities. If you do well on them you'll get money, if you do poorly you won't. If you do too poorly too often, or don't do your job for over a week you'll be fired and it'll be hard getting a job there again.
Appearance: (this can be a picture of your character in the game or just a description; no exact heights or weights please [trust me, I've had trouble with in the past])
Character Sheets Accepted:
Name: Ramona Ridges
Personality: Upbeat and always excited. Ramona is a very adventurous soul that loves pokemon as much as she loves her own family. She likes pushing herself to the limit, though will show more caution when her pokemon are involved. She is friendly towards others for the most part unless insulted, she is a good sport and though she battles to win, she accepts that losing does in fact happen. As long as her pokemon are ready to try again, she is. She doesn't like to push them past their comfort zones, though if they commit, she will as well, without question. She is determined to finish anything she sets her mind on, and will hardly let anything get in the way. She can become quite angry when her pokemon are insulted, and isn't afraid to get violent with somebody when they push her over the edge. Though she is cautious as to not get herself into too much trouble.
Name: Markus Gift
Personality: Markus is a calm and confident teen that sometimes cracks a joke or two for his own amusement. Where others would act up right away he'd end up over thinking the possibilities, trying every single angle until finally deciding what to do. He's polite to others albeit not too friendly, and tends to go alone. Even when he was a kid and Pokémon was just a video game he loved his team, apologizing to them whenever someone fainted and congratulating them for every critical hit. Now that he can see and touch real Pokémon he tries to repay the loyalty they offer to him the best he can, being very close to them. Markus also is sometimes a sneaky person, lying and cheating to get his way.
Name: Yona Adolphus
Appearance: Yona has smooth skin, blue eyes and curly white locks. Her face and jawline is narrow and foxlike, but her eyes are almond shaped and an icy blue color. Her eyebrows are usually neatly plucked. Her lips aren't that thin, but they aren't pouty either. Her cheeks are on the thin side and are usually quite pale, blushes don't usually show through, if they even do at all. Her nose is small and even dainty looking; matching her sleek face and her nose is curved aristocratically. Her neck and shoulders are slender. Her chin has a slight vertical cleft in it. Her hair is curly and is worn plainly and down.
She has a slender body build, narrowed and small. Her arms are smooth and elegant, her legs are long and refined. Her hands are sinewy and her fingers are thin, but elegant. She usually maintains short fingernails to more efficiently play string instruments, and she won't paint them. She has multiple hourglass curves, with a moderately sized chest. She’s small and agile, very flexible but doesn’t have that much strength to her.
Overall her favorite coloring to wear is purple. She enjoys all colors of violet and you can see the color in shirts, pants, scarves, and small accessories such as rings.
In the autumn and in the winter she'll wear multiple layers to keep herself warm and cozy. Purple scarves, boots, long trench coats with baggy pants underneath, and long sweaters are all in her favorite things to wear during the winter.
During spring and summer she opts for short sleeved options and khaki pants with multiple pockets. She'll wear lighter colors much more often to repel too much heat. She won't wear scarves, or even rings or necklaces that often during the warmer seasons.
Personality: Fluent, easily envious, with steadfast determination. She has a habit of being able to communicate a lot by saying very little. Her explanations are usually spot-on and she’s very skilled with simply articulating her ideas. She speaks very often but almost never trips or stutters on her words. She has a well-managed temper and can usually handle all forms of agitation with patience, besides whenever she gets jealous. She gets envious easily and can’t stand when people are being more productive than she is. She can get easily aggressive and lose her temper when people encroach upon what she believes belongs to her.
She has the fast determination and drive to get work done quickly. She’s fast to move a take down any problems, but she keeps herself at it for so long that she can overwork herself, causing her senses to deteriorate with lack of sleep until she rests once more. She’s rather intense and passionate about her few friends within the city, most involved with crime. Surprisingly, if you’re outside the group of allies she has, you mean smaller than dirt to her and she’ll have no morals. She’ll be quick about tripping you and robbing you blind.
Name: Julian Albin
Appearance: Julian is aristocratic, lithe and nimble. He's tall. His eyes are smoothly shaped, and are a fierce, electric yellow. His face is elegantly sculpted with a curved nose, and his cheeks seem to be on the thin side. His lips are slightly thin. His skin is milky and smooth. His hair is coal black, and it's styled wavy down right below his ears, but two stray thick pieces of hair from his sideburns trail down to below his shoulders. His build is lean and swift; he can move and dodge attacks easily, and can take an amount of hits, but not as much as somebody with a bulkier make-up. His hands are nimble and sinewy, but his wrists often get sore from writing so much down.
His style is black trench coats and shirts, alongside common dress slacks and shoes. He's rather well dressed most of the time, even when in casual situations at school. Trench coats are what he prefers to wear, with fur-lined hoods and sleeves.
Personality: What may appear candy coated on the outside is often too good to be true. Julian is gentle, loving, and overall supportive. He's swift with comforting words and knows how to help people out. However, he can quickly becoming possessive and smothering over those who he holds affection for. When someone he doesn't like holds affection for him, he becomes panicked and may even desire to kill them. What he's actually like is far, far off from his cheery and gentle outercore. He only shows his true side to those who he can trust, but often ends up hurting them.
He's actually father ferocious on the outside, going as far as to even wish death upon those who he doesn't like. His true affection is protectiveness, as smothering as it may be. He's often rather confused when with people he likes, unsure how to behave around them. He's rather used to wearing a mask over his actual personality and can get confused with how he actually behaves. He gets nervous on the inside very easily. He's very fixated upon obtaining knowledge and keeping it, within the twisted corners of his mind he believes that knowledge is power. He's very skilled and intelligent, having an immense amount of knowledge of the types of sciences, however mostly biology.
Name: Joeseph Hills
Personality: Somewhat energetic, Joeseph is someone who just likes to have friends that are around. He also likes to stay pretty active and will sometimes challenge himself in some ways. When it comes to pokemon he's a fan, but not a fanatic. He has favorites like anyone else, but won't judge based on that. He does what he can for his pokemon, perhaps even willing to jump in the way of danger to keep them safe.
