        Spoiler:- Theme Song:


    | Plot |
    All worlds need their legends, everyone needs something to believe in; no matter how factual that thing may be. Legends and fables are passed through all generations, from meager cave drawings of fantastical beasts, to the large temples where worship of these beasts took place. All legends have flaws and are often criticized by those around them in their small details, some legends are just much too far-fetched to actually believe. However, there is one legend that has never been questioned and that legend is about the great and powerful Pokemon, Arceus.

    Arceus is known in legend to have created everything we now know today, all the Pokemon, our natural world, and even the other legends around himself. Arceus was known to create the entities of emotion which taught humanity how to feel, the guardians of time and space, the embodiments of the weather, and the lower gods of life and death. Arceus is the embodiment of all legends and the collective god and leader of the entire Pokemon universe.

    The legends that were created by Arceus took to their duties, the weathered trio guarded the land, lakes, and skies; the emotion trio taught humans willpower, feelings, and knowledge, and Xerneas and Yveltal maintained their struggle in balancing life and death. Together all of the legends of our world formed a Counsel of Legends, as they called themselves, and vowed to protect the world that they had made, the world that was now heavily populated with humankind and pokemonkind alike. However, all was not well in the counsel. Xerneas had begun to worry that death would overtake the land, killing everything that she had worked so hard to maintain. However. Yveltal argued that things had to be this way, or the old would remain here forever and never leave anything for the young and fruitful generation. The other legends agreed and attempted to get Xerneas to see the light of their ideals but she refused, storming out of the counsel, never to be seen again. However before she left she uttered a very powerful prophecy for all of the counsel legends to hear, including Arceus himself.

    “Eighteen children will be born on XX/XX/20XX, all by normal means, to normal homes. Each will be fueled by the power of an element, given life by the storm that rages inside them. Before their eighteenth birthday I will visit them, awakening that power that rests within; and they will make their way here to stop every single one of you in your tracks. These children will be strong, with Pokemon at their side and they will bring the end of this era, the end of the legends.”

    After uttering these words Xerneas stole a glance at her sister legend, Yveltal, before storming away. The legends scoffed at Xerneas’ words, knowing full well that no such prophecy of that magnitude had existed before now, however Yveltal knew that change was coming and Yveltal had to find a way to act to stop this insanity. Yveltal pleaded to the other legends and implored them to seek out a child of the prophecy before Xerneas’ influence encompassed them, the legends were skeptical at first, but knew of Yveltal’s power to see destruction. Arceus granted a blessing to the eighteen children, giving them caretakers in the form of Pokemon that would aid them in their quest. However, Arceus made one fatal flaw and did not pre-warn the guardians about Xerneas, nor of Xerneas’ betrayal to the counsel. Arceus then chose eighteen of his most trusted legends to set out and guide the children in the fight against Xerneas, he just prayed that they found the children before she did.

    | Setting |
    The RPG begins with the children rumored in the legend all making their way to Celestic Town within the Sinnoh region, as this is the location of the ancient ruins which tell the tale of the creation myth. Once the children have met up at this location they will begin to explore the world to find themselves more, but during this time they may encounter friends and foes alike. The location of the Counsel of Legends is unknown however the assigned mentors to the children are trying desperately to locate them quickly before Xerneas is able to corrupt them with her influence.

    The RPG is modern, taking place in the current era meaning most of the children have cellphones and other electronic gadgets of the sort. Some may even have special interests in technology, and be able to operate things with ease.

    | Information |
    Guardians: Guardians are assigned to special children of legend by Arceus himself. These Pokemon are of the respective types of the children they are assigned to and coached in the language that the children are most familiar with. They're tasked to protect and guide the children throughout their quest and as such, they must be able to communicate with the children and help them with anything and everything they may need assistance with, as well as maintain a close bond with their assigned humans.

    Mentors: Legendary Pokemon handpicked by Arceus to help the children understand their abilities and strengthen them to help fight against any challenges that the children may face during their quest. These are normally of the same type as the children unless a special exception must be made, like in the case of the Poison child. These legends wish to help the children better understand themselves but also do not want to disobey Arceus' orders.

    Counsel of Legends: A circle of all the currently awakened legends of the Pokemon world, lead by Arceus. These legends discuss all current events and work as a team to keep the world of humans and Pokemon safe and functioning properly, they're all knowing and somewhat imposing.
    Currently Active Legendaries in the Counsel: Arceus and Yveltal

    Dalton: No.

    Well, some of them can speak telepathically if the anime is anything to go by... At least Diancie, Darkrai, and the Psychic typed ones can.

    Lets pray Cresselia is in that crowd as well.
    I'd imagine us being able to talk with our mentors though.

    I don't remember much of Rayquaza in the anime but somehow I doubt it's in that crowd lol..

    I'm presuming we'll be able to talk to more Pokemon as we go on...?

    I'd assume the characters can talk with the mentors once they meet them, since the mentors are supposed to be guiding the teens and stuff

    Mogar said we wouldn't be able to understand them when we first meet them.

    We only understand our guardians at this point. Wwhen we properly meet their legendary we'll understand them, most likely.

    Dunno why Mogar would bother clarifying that we could only speak to our guardians and not our mentors if it wouldn't matter by the time the mentors were introduced. That would be pretty redundant. More clarification would be nice Mogar, we're just gonna talk ourselves in circles. ^^

    I think she was clarifying that we couldn't speak to other regular Pokemon. Legendaries have special privileges in RPGs.

    For right now, it's just our Guardians. We can't even speak to our mentors at this point.

    ^ I meant it like this, but we don't encounter our mentors for quite some time.

    Your character goes to Celestic Town for now, don't worry about the mentors at this point in time.

    Ha! I was right! 8D

    Are all eighteen of us going to be gathered in one location? That seems like it's going to get chaotic.

    Glad that we finally have a discussion thread for this!

    Just curious, but do the children have any other Pokemon on them or is it just their mentor for now?

    For now yes, just to meet up and allow our characters to introduce themselves to one another. After that travel groups will be established between our characters. Most likely 6 groups of 3

    And the RPG should be up later tonight, I have a doctor's appointment in about an hour that I have to walk to, and then I'm heading to my grandparents for dinner but after that it should be up. It would've been up last night but I got home from hanging out with my friends at like 1:30am and just typed this thread out before passing out. vnv

    Just the Guardian at the moment, I'm not positive if I'm going to have them catch other Pokemon, as already having so much to control could get a little confusing. :>

    That was why I didn't take another character. Having to control the character, a legendary, and a Guardian would get to be too much. It just doesn't feel like a Pokemon RPG without being able to catch more Pokemon though...

    Alright. Maybe more efficiently than last time, I think the chaos of 17 of us posting meaningless travel posts killed it. x_X
