Pokemon: The Broken World interest check
I've written this rp a long time ago and I felt to bring it back for some reason. Here is a rough draft of the OOC that I will be refining with new ideas I am debating about.
This is a mature and dark themed Pokemon rp!
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 chosen partner 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.
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.
Birthmarks for Humans and Pokemon:
Birthmarks grant the human a special power once they bonded. The Pokemon they bond with has the same type as the birthmark. They can be located anywhere on the body. The birthmark corresponds to the primary Pokemon type of your partner.
A bonded Pokemon can be understood by any human and their power increases faster than an average Pokemon. Bonded Pokemon cannot evolve normally, only under special circumstances. Birthmarks when used by Pokemon let them use moves that have never been created. These attacks use up both the energy of the Pokemon and their human partner and causes great fatigue.
The Flame: Fire Type
The Raindrop: Water Type
The Thunderbolt: Electric Type
The Icicle: Ice Type
The Fang: Dragon Type
The Stone: Rock Type
The Tree: Grass type
The Fist: Fighting type
The Eye: Psychic type
The Wing: Flying type
The Butterfly: Bug type
The Ghost: Ghost type
The Skull: Poison type
The Moon: Dark type
The Spike: Steel type
The Heart: Normal type
The Mountain: Ground Type
The Star: Fairy type
As the RP continues the powers of the birthmarks will increase the abilities of both humans and Pokemon.
Let me know what you guys think! I'm open to suggestions on how to make this better as well!

I always love more adult-friendly Pokemon, but this is unique. I'd be into this
Sounds really cool! I'm in.

Also, I'm a little curious about the birthmark moves. What did you have in mind for those?
The Scarlet Lady
So let me get this straight. We'd RP as both the Pokemon & Human correct?
Also you spelled psychic wrong might wanna fix that :P
It all sounds very interesting.
For birthmark moves it can be a special attack akin to a limit break or ultimate move. For example a charmander's birthmark move could summon pillars of flame around it. Be creative!

Cool so we make our own moves and basically decide what our partner is. But only one type in our group right?
To be honest, I really like this idea adds a new element to the whole thing.
Correct! One type of birthmark/pokemon type character allowed. Two people can not have the same birthmark.

Neat. Is it too early to call dragon?
I'd like to reserve Bug if possible. Heracross is a beast.
