Just cause I read worse don't mean it ain't cursed

  • In the small city of Leefside, as rain dripped from the cracked gutters of a Pokémon-friendly apartment complex, buzzing screens flickered to life as their users tuned into a local news network. The building was filled with equal parts dread and anticipation as the voice of a kind-looking young woman came to life across the city.

    "The people are pushing for city-wide bans on all large Pokémon tonight after another explosive, illegal street battle on Main ravaged nearby stores and injured civilians."

    Sure enough, in the background of the shot, between the ruins of what might have been a building, or maybe a fountain, a swarm of people shouted demands, waving brightly-colored cardboard signs, and crowding a pair of city officials. The officials' words were lost in the sea of protestors, but the stress on their faces was clear.

    "We still don't know what this means for Handlers, but the community of Trainers in the city have made it very clear that their way of life depends on their Pokémon partners. One thing is certain, though; the Pokémon battles must be stopped at all costs."


Synopsis
This is a Pokémonster roleplay; a roleplay about Pokémon, but leaning much more toward realism and making Pokémon absolutely terrifying (think the live-action Pokémon movie if it was rated PG-14 for dark themes and blood). This roleplay will be focusing a lot on slice-of-life and the effects of Pokémon on people and society. Battling will be... not really that relevant until a little later on, but even then, I don't want to focus on it, because that's been done over so many times that I don't really wanna think about it too much.

The plot follows, roughly, that having large Pokémon has slowly been becoming illegal in more and more cities, with Leefside being one of the last that still has no restrictions. That is rapidly changing, however, as Pokémon are being banned from more and more places to the extent that if you own any one over the size of a medium-sized Espeon, you will have to rent an apartment that accepts "large" Pokémon. It's getting more and more difficult for Trainers and Handlers (see; "Handler vs. Trainer") to even exist in the city. This is the first arc of the roleplay, with the following arcs being player-decided.

Don't forget to at least skim the tabs; there's quite a bit of stuff I didn't mention in the hook.

ooh I have the inspiration, but I’m not sure if I’ll have the motivation to join this in the future. a tentative interested for now!

a couple of quick questions regarding character creation, though.
  • would all characters have to be handlers/trainers or would a character with a different profession be allowed, provided that they have a reason to interact with the other characters?
  • does this roleplay plan on having a lot of traveling around?
  • would starting with just a domesticated Pokémon be okay? quick edit: if the former is a no, would being able to get one for important situations, probably borrowing one from a friend / family, help?
thanks and good luck with your roleplay! :D

Heh I know that feeling!

Yup! You can, indeed make people with other professions! I just focused more on Trainers and Handlers because I imagined that's what people would be more interedted in!

Not an obscene amount of traveling, no, but yes, after arc 1, I do hope for some new-region shenanigans!

You can start with anything up to one domestic, and one fully-evolved Pokémon! So if you want only one domestic or a domestic and a first-evolution, feel free!

ooh, it seems like I’ll have to plan for the traveling part. 0.0

but, yeah, that’s good to know! I’ll work on getting an idea hammered out, though, I think I’ll leave out some of the details for now.

In the end, I think I'm going to sit this one out since I'm having trouble figuring out the details of the ideas that I liked. Best of luck, though!

New players are perfectly fine so long as you can write! You can DM me questions, if you need!

Right—current plan is to wait until the weekends, then get IC and OOC up in the same day—it's alright if you don't get your sheets in by then, though
