    Default Pokemon Soul Seekers Signup

    Signups are open!

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sick and tired of the same old "Pokemon Trainer" RPGs where you travel around getting badges and catching pokemon, but a "new" evil team is trying to steal Pokemon and yada yada. Fogedaboudit. Thanks to some inspiration while teaching a fellow RPer, I have taken your typical PT RPG, removed what I hated, and came up with a way to give it the fantasy tone I love so very, very much. So now, without further ado, I present to you:


    Pokemon: Soul Seekers
    Rated PG-13 for possible violence, swearing, and alcoholic references.
    (Oh, c'mon. It is the medival times after all)




    The Pokemon world today is quite an amazing place. People and Pokemon live as equals, living together side by side. When a fight breaks out, it is not truly violent with blood and wounds, but a fun competition in which the attacks used are never powerful enough to kill, even at full strength. Technology and Medical conditions are better than ever before, healing 6 Pokemon in a matter of seconds. Even evil seems to have died down, leaving the world a much more peaceful place.

    But it wasn't always like that.

    Let's go back to about the year 500, approximately 1,400 years before Red of Pallet Town set off on his journey. Pokeballs hadn't been invented back then. Medical abilities were less, reduced to herbs and a lucky few whom had the power. A certain Magic was still in tact, allowing humans abilities they had never dreamed of, before it would be lost many years later. And battles were deadly. In the late 500s, a group of stanged hooded figures appeared before Queen Scarlett, The Kingdom of Kanto's leader at the time. They said not a word, but placed a strange scroll in the queen's hands. By the time she looked up from the odd object, they had vanished into thin air. Checking the scroll, she found the instructions on how to create a way to fight using Pokemon. In those days, Pokemon were merely wild animals to the people, considered dangerous, although unintelligent. As a matter of fact, they had been warring with a group of Pokemon from the west, and the war had raged on for almost half a century. With this scroll, the queen realized she would finally have a way to make peace. Bearing the scroll with her, Scarlett traveled to the battlefield, calling for a peaceful meeting with the Pokemon's leader, a great Gardevoir. Thankfully, her psychic powers made communtication possible.

    In this meeting, Scarlett proposed an eternal truce between the Pokemon and the Humans. Showing Gardevoir the scroll as her proof, a long discussion soon made both sides agree that it was better to fight together"as one". To seal the deal, they shook hands. As they did so, a bright light filled the room, forcing the guards on both sides to cover thier eyes. When it cleared, Scarlett held a long green and white scepter with a red triangle. Oddly enough, Gardevoir had become this object, but could still speak clearly, something she did quickly to keep her guards from attacking. A Rhydon, assuming it was a human trick, rushed forwards to attack the Queen. Alone, she or Gardevior would likely have been impaled on the end of a Horn Drill, but together, they stopped the armored Pokemon by lifting it into the air. All were stunned, especially the two performing the feat. Neither had ever felt such power in thier lives.

    When it was revealed that both Queens were fine (and Gardervoir capable of changing back and forth from weapon to Pokemon), the humans and Pokemon threw down thier weapons and rejoiced. Alone, they were weak, but together, Humans and Pokemon could be stronger! All across Kanto, humans and Pokemon finally began to bond, and to see each other as equals. Humans discovered that Pokemon abilities could be useful in everyday life. Ponyta, for example, pulled carts and wagons in exchange for a place to stay. Miltank finally had something to do with the milk they constantly produced. With the muscle of fighting and rock Pokemon, cities could be built much higher and stronger.

    As 30 years more passed in a flash, the queen and the psychic pokemon who had made the pact aged and died. As they did so, with their final breaths, they gave a prediction in one last Future Sight. There would be a break that could drive man and Pokemon apart forever, and it would be up to the world to prevent it. Mentioning nothing more, they finally took to eternal sleep. Humans and Pokemon alike mourned the death of their queens.

    Since then for 5 more years, the world has seen a steady growth, as her final words frightened the people. What if the prediction was true? After enjoying such happy times, would they really be reduced to fighting one another again?


    *********


    Who are you? Who knows? Perhaps you are a farmer, tending your fields. Maybe you joined the ranks of the Kanto Knights. Perhaps, even, you are just a simple man in a peaceful world. For one reason or another, you are among the lucky few who recently found you are able to wield a Pokemon as a weapon.



    --INFORMATION--


    Soul Weapons

    A Soul Weapon is the result of the pact made by the queens 35 years ago. A holy power emmited from them, allowing the two races to combine thier souls. The human acts as a catalyst for the Pokemon, and the Pokemon is formed into a weapon, boosting it's power greatly, even unlocking abilities they didn't know they had. Depending on the Pokemon species and the human who makes the pact, the weapon can be anything; Broadswords, Bows, Staffs, any outcome is possible. However, the one thing they have in common is that they all appear similar to the Pokemon they transformed from.


    Pacts

    It doesn't happen by choice. When a human and a Pokemon are compatible, and they have a strong bond with each other, a bright light flashes, revealing the Pokemon's weapon form. In order for this to take place, however, both sides must agree to the pact, and share a strong bond.


    Soul Formes

    A completed and true version of the Soul Weapon. The human takes on a new appearance, representing the Pokemon with whom they have merged. Reaching this level takes incredible skill, and as of currently, only the Knights of Kanto are capable of performing this feat. Until you have achieved sufficient mastery, this form will consume a large amount of stamina to reach and maintain.


    The Knights of Kanto

    Also known as The Kanto Knights, they are the protectors of Kanto, as well as the most powerful fighters in all the land. Each has a castle in one of 8 locations (the future sites of the 8 Pokemon Gyms) where they train and watch over the nearby citizens. In order to become a Knight, you must enter into the intense training of the knights, and reach a certain level of power. All Knights are extremely strong, and can activate their Soul Formes with little difficulty. However, you may not play as one of them. You may, however, be in training under one of them as a low-ranked soldier.



    QUESTIONS


    Does my Partner have to be a Kanto Pokemon?

    No. Your partner can be from any region at all, and even fossil Pokemon have yet to go extinct. Just treat them like you would any other Pokemon. Just no Legendaries. As a note, Mewtwo will not be created for another several hundred years, so he will not be appearing in this RPG. Or will he?


    Can my Pokemon evolve?

    Yes, your Pokemon can evolve. However, if you plan to evolve it during the RPG, then you need to PM me when you plan to do so with whatever changes occur to your Pokemon, and, by extension, your Soul Weapon and Forme.


    Hey, you mentioned Magic! Where are the spells?!

    The ancient magic referred to above is the pacts. However, you can create a mage-like character if it fits the Pokemon you use. Just remember that the 'spells' need to be Pokemon Abilities.


    There's an attack I think fits, but my Pokemon cannot learn it. Can I-?

    Say no more. You may use any attack AS LONG AS IT MAKES SENSE. For example, Seviper with Hyper Fang is fine, but you can't have a Combusken with Vine Whip.


    I want to have more than 4 attacks. Is that okay?

    No. You start with a maximum of 4. I assure you that you will learn more during the course of the RPG, but since you are new to your Soul Weapon and Pokemon Partner, you will not have a large number of attacks.


    The Kingdom of Kanto's Locations

    -Celadon Castle Town-
    Home to the King and his Castle, Celadon is the capital of the Kingdom. Ruled over by Queen Carmen and Queen Raichu, Celadon is a very peaceful place, named after the serene beauty of the plants that grow outside the town's great walls. The entire city is kept inside a massive stone wall, surrounded by a moat to prevent a seige. Celadon Castle Town is always bustling with activity, including the new Game Corner. Taverns and Inns are abundant to handle the large amount of people who travel through.

    Notable Locations:
    Castle Kanto- Home to the Queens. A very regal place located in the center of town. It is the most massive structure in Kanto, made to defend the ruler at all costs.
    Celadon Castle- A smaller, but equally important castle on the southwestern side of town. It is the home of Lady Fern of the Kanto Knights, a specialist in plants and herbs. She runs a small infirmary nearby.
    Game Corner- A gambling house for drunkards. Fortunes are made and lost here.
    Celadon Market- The largest market in Kanto. Merchants from all over gather to sell thier goods, each trying to outdo the others. It is rumored that you can find just about anything here.


    -Saffron Junction-
    Located directly in the center of 3 major cities (and the swamp), Saffron Junction is the perfect place to spread ideas and technology, second only to Celadon economically. Lady Mana watches over the city with a clairvoyant mind, protecting the citizens from any who would cause harm, resulting in a suprisingly safe city. This is the best place for scholars, who usually work at the local scriptorium.

    Notable Locations:
    Saffron Castle- Home to Lady Mana of the Knights. The castle is the largest building in town, whose center tower is incredibly high. it is in this tower that Lady Mana herself sleeps.
    Saffron Dojo- A local fighting Dojo run by Chan Lee. It is rumored he was to become a Knight of Kanto, but for some reason, he was rejected and Lady Mana was chosen instead. This still ticks him off, but he runs a dojo here, hoping one of his students will become a Knight.
    Scriptorium- Home to the scholars of Kanto. All of the kingdom's records are kept here, and it is rumored that the magical scroll that started the fusion ability is kept here as well.


    -Fushia Village-
    South of Celadon and Southwest of Vermillion sits a small but growing village. The town is supposedly founded by a ninja clan, a rumor the town's leader, Sir Attor denies vehemenetly. However, the town has taken on that vibe, blending eastern styles into the culture of Kanto.

    Notable Locations:
    Fushia Castle- Down near the sea, built into the firm bedrock is Fushia Castle, home of Sir Attor of the Knights of Kanto. Many people are not pleased by its presence, which contradicts with the surrounding areas. Sir Attor specializes in alchemy.
    Fushia Shrines- Devoted to the departed, Fushia honors their dead with a shrine. People also burn incense here to try and appeal to the God Pokemon, Arceus, as well as other legendaries.


    -Port Vermillion-
    Located on the Sea, Port Vermillion Hosts a wide number of docks and ships fully fit to set sail. Fishermen, as well as sailors and explorers frequent this area, sailing boats all across the known world. The townspeople are very loyal and affectionate to thier ruler, Admiral Tyrell of the Knights of Kanto. This town also conducts almost as many rumors as the Castle Town.

    Notable Locations:
    Vermillion Castle- Home to Admiral Tyrell, on the western penninsula of the area. It overlooks the sea, and has a lightning rod on top, drawing the strikes to it. Admiral Tyrell often allows inventors from all over to use this electricty to power inventions, especially if they would help his village.
    Vermillion Docks- Hundreds of ships, large and small, anchor here. If you need a ride across the water, you'll find it here.
    The Great Tunnel- Dug by Diglett under orders from the last queen, the Great Tunnel is a project that is attempting to create a link between Vermillion and Pewter via an underground tunnel. Although it is incomplete, it could serve as a passageway or an escape route one day.


    -Lavender Swamps-
    Few have entered. None have returned.


    -Pewter Valley-
    Located between 2 great mountain regions, Pewter Valley is a great center of mining and timber. Lead by Sir Slate of the Knights of Kanto, its villagers have the reputation of rough-and-tumble wild men. It is a fairly new region, but it sees growth and new sights with each passing day.

    Notable Locations:
    Pewter Castle- Although still under construction, Pewter Castle is made from solid stones, placed high upon a mountain's peak to make raids difficult. Of course, it also makes going to and from Sir Slate's home a massive pain in the legs. However, the lumbermen, who do it everyday, have little problem in climbing it. This makes escaping a raid easier for them, and harrowing for thier enemies.
    Lumber Camp- Home of the Lumbermen, unless in times of raid. When they aren't cutting down trees for timber, they can be heard singing with suprising harmony.
    Builder's Camp- The builder's home, unless in times of raid. The builders are a surly lot, but they appreciate the few women who enter the camp (and they show it very vocally).


    -Cerulean Coast-
    Next to Vermillion, the second aquatic powerhouse in Kanto. The Cerulean Coast is a smaller village, but with more emphasis on fishing than exploring and naval warfare. The city is considered to be the perfect place for lovers, and is a very romantic village, but the tall cliff nearby has sharp, pointy rocks that ships can crash into in the fog. The resident Knight, Lady Nautia, is working on a plan to solve that problem.

    Notable Locations:
    Cerulean Castle- Home to Nautia, the Town's Kanto Knight. The Castle is quite beautiful, reflecting the romantic appearance of the area. Ironically enough, Lady Nautia is single.
    Cerulean Cove- Lots of little fishing vessels come here specifically to find the freshest and widest variety of fish in all of Kanto. Rather than a dock, boats are beached on the sand, as there are few storms and no larger boats.
    Cerulean Cliff- A tall cliff with a jagged edge on the seaside. It's very dangerous on a foggy cerulean night, where a boat can crash into it.


    -Cinnibar Island-
    Although not currently a part of the Kanto Kingdom, Sir Hakan of the Knights is attempting to set up negotiations with the local tribe. They are currently resistant, but the Knight and the local Shaman, Jeohash, have managed to keep a fight from breaking out. It is a beautiful island, tropical and bright, but the people are very uncivilized, living in mud huts in small villages.

    Notable Locations:
    Kanto Camp- Since they have yet to agree to becoming allies, a Castle has not been built. Therefore, a small camp is located near the northern shore, where Sir Hakan and his fellow diplomats are staying.
    Cinnibar Tribe- A Tribe of people who are far behind in terms of technology (even compared to the feudal Kanto), but are very in tune with the wild life, and even the earth itself. They don't like outsiders, but they are open to reason, thanks to their leader, the Shaman Jeohash.
    Cinnibar Volcano- A massive volcano in the middle of the island. It has incredible destructive power, but is, for the most part, inactive. The warm temperatures and remaining lava do tend to attract certain fire types though.
    Seafoam Islands- A mysterious and uninhabited island. Nobody lives there, but the few who have visited have felt a strange presence...



    -Viridian Forest-
    A vast forest to the south of Pewter. Lots of bug and grass pokemon live here in harmony. The people here seem to have adpated to that, building houses only in spaces between the trees, rather than ripping trees out. Their leader, Sir Terrance, makes sure everyone follows those rules.

    Notable Locations:
    Viridian Castle- Not exactly the grandest of castles, but Sir Terrance's dirt-built Viridian Castle works with the very earth around it, and is propped up by the plants that have grown on it. Many wild Pokemon have made a home here.
    The Forest- It's easy to get lost in Viridian Forest if you aren't a resident. Bring one with you every time you go- unless you want to lose yourself forever...


    -Pallet Fields-
    The only Pokemon-Only settlement left, the Pallet Fields are the Pokemon's capital, filled with fresh air and flowers. The only human here is Bonsai, a sage who lives with his Torterra Partner.

    Notable Locations:
    Bonsai's Hut- Home of Bonsai. Be warned if you plan to fight him, for it is rumored that even the Kanto Knights cannot beat him...


    -To the West...-
    Who knows? Some people believe it is an entirely new world out there...

    If this is not possible then can a pokemon's soul weapon form be two seperate weapon like the above mentioned fans?

    Thanks for taking the time to consider these questions
    This was sent to me via PM, but I feel it was important to answer in a way visible to everyone. I apologize if you meant for this to be personal.

    Anyways, having two soul weapons that work together are fine, but only within reason. First of all, the two Pokemon must have a connection of some sort, or make sense together, like Plusle and Minun. Next, you would have to understand that you'd need to meet the 4 attack limit, even with both Pokemon.

    A single Pokemon could indeed form 2 seperate soul weapons, but each weapon would be reduced in ability by half when both halves are not used, leaving you at a disadvantage if one is removed. However, you could use 4 attacks from just one Pokemon.

    Also, for everyone else's knowledge, I've updated the SU sheet with the rules and some more information, so be sure to check it out.

    I am interested in this. I've come across a non-pokemon version similar in terms of partnerships and what not, but I'd like to try my hand at this. Reserve please

    I will go ahead and will tell you that I do plan on using an eevee and hope to evolve it later down in the rpg into either a glaceon or vaporeon. So I'll go ahead and need your approval before I crack down on the sign-up.

    HOLD IT!

    Before I have a whole bunch of people throwing in reservations and whatnot, I'm going to mention that I will NOT be accepting reservations. (I knew I forgot something... *adds it to the rules*)

    Also: You can start with an evolved Pokemon, as long as it isn't something overly powerful. Vaporeon is okay. Charizard Man, if you want a Charmeleon, that's okay. Charizard, however, would be too much.

    *added to the SUs*

    There may be Pokemon who do so, such as Kadabra, Onix, and Haunter, so there will be some point in the adventure where you and your partner split up, and as a result are forced to work with someone else. This would count as a Trade, and when you join together once more, would allow you to evolve your Pokemon.

    I should ask one thing, are we allowed to use TM moves in our sign-up? Otherwise my attacks will be consisting of anything that isn't offensive or practical. Also, Will we have to provide additional info of the form changes when our pokemon evolves?

    Say no more. You may use any attack AS LONG AS IT MAKES SENSE. For example, Seviper with Hyper Fang is fine, but you can't have a Combusken with Vine Whip.
    Case in point.

    Sign me up for a reser- ... oh, wait. Err... never mind. I'm just... expressing my interest, I guess. ^_^

    I just have one question: When we describe our Pokemon's move, are we supposed to explain how the Pokemon uses them, how they're used in Soul Weapon form, or both?


    -----------
    Yup, I'm a Christian.

    @ryodragonite: It's okay, I just suggest writing it in notepad or something and copying it onto Serebii so that stuff won't happen. Also, please refrain from posting here unless it is a signup or a question. Thank you.

    @Pokefan: The intention is the Soul Weapon version, since we can usually know what it looks like when the Pokemon uses it. After all, they have been shown many times in the anime. However, if you feel that information needs to be explained, then by all means, go right on ahead.

    EDIT: I forgot to address Slipomatic's evolution question. Yes, you will need to redescribe your pokemon and also your weapon/soul forme if it changes. However, you will not need to do so until the evolution occurs in the RPG. At the point you wish to evolve it, PM me ahead of time with the information, as well as any new attacks they might learn upon evolving, and make sure to get my okay first.

    I was also asked via VM to clarify how big a paragraph is. 1 Paragraph is roughly 5-7 sentences of average length. Not 5-7 short phrases. At least average length. For example, the above answer to Slipomatic is not a full paragraph.

    HUMAN

    Name: Gin (First name only)

    Age: 19

    Gender: Male

    Hometown: Nomad

    Description: Gin is your average nomad standing at 6'1" he was always tall for his age. He has long jet black hair that is usually in a ponytail that flies behind him when the wind blows. On his head he wears a straw hat that looks like the ones farmers usually have. His arms and legs are thin yet muscular because hes always walking around giving him a very toned body. Despite being outside a lot he is a very clean person and if he can washes off in a lake or a stream. He also has a black robe similar to a wizards robe, (there were wizards in medieval times), that he usually wears at night when hes really cold. Since he travels the world his skin is a fair color from being in the sun so long.

    Gin loves the color black. He has a black wristband with the symbol of a electrical bolt on it. His shoes are straw sandals but he wears socks with them. Gins' robe has a rope like sash on the front so whenever he's ready for battle he pulls the rope down and the robe falls off. Under that robe is just a plain black t shirt with a yellow stripe in the middle, almost like a bumble bee. On his back he keeps his white sash that holds his stick, he keeps it there so its ready the throw when hes in trouble. Even though he travels the world he cleans his clothes just like he cleans himself in rivers. He believes image is everything.

    Personality: Gin is mostly a quiet and reserved guy. Always calm even in the middle of the battle. You could always trust Gin with with your life. He's the kind of guy who would do that for you even if you were a complete stranger to him. He never gives up or backs down. Thats his motto and he always sticks to it. He is very dillegent in his work and thats why he has so many jobs, even if he leaves the place early. Hes very honorable which is something you dont expect from a 'wild' man.

    Gin is also quite laid back for a person always on the move. But he is also quite stubborn since he hasnt really had to answer to anyone if you don't count the orphanage.You would usually see him when he's not traveling laying on the hills of a field quietly looking up at the clouds. Never freaking out Gin is a very good traveling companion. Just ask his Luxio, there always together. Also living out side has had him 'tuned to nature'. You might see him listening to the wind or looking up to the sky for answers. But there are three words that describe Gin. Calm, Collected, Loyal.

    History: Gin wasn't always alone. Gin had a family but when things got rough his family abandoned him and dropped him off in an orphanage. Gin was only a baby about two or three to be exact and was confused about his new surroundings. He had never been around so many children since he was an only child. Years had passed in the orphanage and Gin hated being around so many people. He wanted to escape, and he planned his escape that night. Even though it was an orphanage it was highly guarded like the whole village was. He escaped when only the guards were awake, Gin was amazed that it was so easy to get pass them like their were asleep. He looked around and didn't know where to go next. He had forgotten where he had lived and even if he had remembered his parents would have left the village by now! He gathered food from the night stands( most merchants left their carts alone at night) and left out alone into the wild.

    A few months had passed after Gin had left the village. He was about ten years old and could now start to care for himself. Up until now Gin and foraged food for himself stealing from villages. He knew that stealing food for the rest of his life wasn't the life for him and that was oblivious, plus its been harder for him to steal food ever since Pokemon and humans have been working together. The last time he tried to steal food he almost got caught thanks to the guards Ryhdon, the thing could had killed him with that earthquake. Gin was lucky to get away, he ran into the forest where they couldn't find him. The guards had chased him into the forest! Gin quickly hid under a tree. He waited until the guards had left and it was dark out about now. He had never been out in the forest at night. He heard something frightened he started to run. Whatever it was catching up to him fast. He lost his footing and tripped. Looking up he noticed it was a Duskclops.

    This wasn't an ordinary Duskclops. It had been terrorizing the village for years and it was known to take the souls of whoever entered its territory at night. Duskclops was getting ready to take Gins' soul when out of nowhere a Luxio had appeared. The Luxio fiercely attacked the Duskclops and held its own in battle. The fight seemed like it was hours since they had first started. Just then when it seemed Luxio had the upper hand Duskclops hit it with a shadow ball. Luxio was stunned by this attack, and Gin was furious he couldn't do anything to stop it. Just then Luxio started to glow. He must be charging , Gin thought. The Luxios body began to glow yellow then out of nowhere he hit the Duskclops. The wounded Pokemon ran off howling. Luxio started to glow for a while and had reverted to his original form. Gin looked at Luxio and they became friends automatically.

    A few years after this Gin and Luxio were still on their own. They traveled all of Kanto, looking for jobs and other things that could give him food. The two stayed for a while in Vermillion Port guiding ships to dock safely. Since he had Luxio he worked at the light house guiding ships at night to dock. The job payed well and he was doing good. By the time he was 15 he left the Port, he had enough money now to keep him and Luxio up for a while. After he gathered supplies he went back into the wild.

    Back in the hometown of his village he went to check up on the orphanage just to see how it was doing. Looking around town he didnt see anyone there. Gin just thought they were out hunting or doing whatever they do. Alas, he had found the orphanage ,which was a lot different than he had left it. It just looked a little older and run down ,probably from being up so long. Gin went into the orphanage to see if there was anyone in there. Of course there wasnt. Gin thought this was weird and he didnt like this feeling. As he was about to turn around he saw it. The duskclops from long ago had destroyed everyone in the village. Gin felt his ager get the better of him. All of what he had know was gone because of this pokemon. Rai had sense Gin feelings, not wanting him to do anything rash he jumped into battle. Rai started with a spark attack, but the Duskclops shook it off like it was nothing. Rai hasnt battled in a long time, but this Duskclops must have been training for years! The dark pokemon grabbed Rai by the neck. Rais body started to fade in and out. Its sucking the life out of him! Gin thought. Gin tried to stop the pokemon from taking his best friend but the Duskclops just grabbed him too. This Duskclops was about to take the life out of the both of them and Gin could do nothing, agian. Just then Rai started to glow, not the other glow, he glowed with more light Gins ever seen. Rai was gone and Gin had a thin, black sword in his hand. Gin tried to his Duskclops in the head with the sword. The pokemon teleported back, knowing that it could not win this battle. the pokemon fled, once again. Rai reverted back to his original form. Letting the duskclops flee, he looked at Rai. He didnt. know what just happened but he liked it.

    Fighting Style: Since Gin has lived with Pokemon his whole life he has adapted to their fighting skills. When he fights he usually uses a sneak up then attack kind of approach.

    Weapon of Choice: He has a regular long stick that he uses to finish things off.

    In battle Rai likes to do things his own way. He still listens to Gin but he likes to finish thing off his own way. He shows no mercy in battle and he doesn't have to. He's used to foraging for food and battling others just to get that. But that doesn't mean he's mean in battle.

    Only posting because a certain person won't stop bugging me till I post mine which I'm pretty sure is denied in paragraph lengths in all but history.

    Human:

    Name: Cusa Rale

    Age: 17

    Gender: Male ♂

    Home Town: Port Vermillion

    Description:
    Cusa stands at 5’ 10” and weighs 150 pounds. His body is slim and toned with years of adventures. His eyes are a sparkling blue and his hair is black. He wears a black t-shirt underneath some leather armor as protection. He wears a rugged pair of jeans along with a pair of boots. He keeps his face clean shaven and keeps his eye brows from becoming a unibrow. Although he does have leather armor, he keeps it stashed away and just wears his black T-shirt. He has black leather hat that is simple and keeps water from leaking onto his hair which is well kept and straight. He has a pair of shorts that he wears when he exercises and does some messy things. His legs are well toned as he does a lot of dashing and dodging with them. His arms are also well toned with the years of practicing with a rapier in fencing.

    He is fairly muscled on his legs although his arms are not as muscled as his legs are. He is lanky and has little body fat on him as he doesn’t slouch in keeping shape. His face is narrow and his chin is rounded out, making him look a bit odd. His skin tone is a bit pale as he doesn’t tan well in the sun, never seeming to tan at all. Also, his skin is smooth and feels like a newborn babe’s skin although he does quite a bit of physical activity. He is fairly hairless on his arms, legs, and chest for the most part, becoming a side joke for some people as being a lady man although he never shaves his arms or legs. His hair is styled in a simple straight and simple haircut. The hair never goes below his ears so it’s short, but kept down and is smooth to the touch, thanks to his secret soap formula he learned from a hairstylist. His nose is narrow and short.

    Personality:
    Cusa is mild mannered around people when they’re relaxing. He does tend to be stubborn when it comes to deciding where to go as he will want to go to where there is the most danger. He acts a bit reckless and often argues on choices the group has to make and tries to put out that he knows what’s best for the group. The only time he doesn’t try to lead the group is if they’re in the Viridian Forest as he isn’t a resident there. He likes to talk about the subject of pokemon, their strengths and weaknesses and likes to debate about it. He generally doesn’t like poison type pokemon and doesn’t really tolerate them, often complaining about them. He has several good reasons to dislike them, but he can’t deny that the poison types do have their purposes in the medicine field. He gets along with most people who share his concept of adventure without restrictions, as in staying up late, talk about anything that isn’t illegal, and no curfews. He does get a bit grumpy when he is forced to follow another person’s rules especially if they are a control freak and likes to keep things organized and planned whereas he likes to plan as they go along.

    As far as his competitive side is concerned, he is quite competitive. Once issued a challenge, he will often take it regardless of the condition unless it concerns with his eevee in which he’ll decline. Although being competitive, he doesn’t boast his abilities and takes challenges without good reasons. It’s easy to see his game face as he turns into a training machine and often ignores others in keeping focused on what the challenge may be. He doesn’t act aggressive at all in battles, tending to keep as neutral as possible to keep the opponents from being hinted on the next moves. He likes to show as little as possible on the field and win or lose, treats it indifferently although he’ll be a good sportsman and compliment the opponent if he isn’t a sore loser.


    History:
    Cusa was always an adventurous type of person, always wanting to see the world as a young child. He was always getting into trouble when he always snuck out of his house on a dare by his friends on a whim of adventure. His parents constantly had to apologize to people when Cusa got into trouble with other people. When he turned ten, his adventurous spirit calmed down a bit and he began to express an interest in fencing. His parents decided that it would be safer as he would be in good hands with the instructor who overlooked fencing. He spent four years in the institution, learning from the instructors and was fairly decent at his age. He left the institution for purposes of adventure and to leave his home town when he turned fifteen.

    Before he left the town, he bought himself a rapier that was sharp enough to slice through leather, but not sharp enough to break through full metal armors. He journeyed to other nearby areas avoiding the infamous Viridian Forest for its endless forest of trees and collected a few odd trinkets here and there. It was only at Fushia Village that he met his pact partner in an unfortunate incident. He was out walking during the night, observing the quiet beauty when he heard a shriek and a snarl. He quickly rushed towards the area he had heard the scream come from and what he saw when he found the source made him wince at the sight.

    He saw an eevee with white fur with an odd brown cuff marred with a lot of cuts and bleeding quite badly. He looked ahead and saw an arbok leaning down towards the eevee to deliver the finishing bite with its fangs and he had to do something. Without thinking, he whipped out his rapier and quickly dashed at the arbok. With the element of surprise, he caught arbok on its hood with a stab, causing it to cry out. He quickly leapt away as the arbok lunged at him, intent on poisoning him. He easily sidestepped him and delivered a quick series of jabs and thrusts, each one striking like needles into the arbok. The arbok, frustrated at him slithered away with looks of venom burning in its eyes. When he saw that the arbok disappear off into the woods, he quickly returned his attention to the eevee and saw that without proper attention, it would die quickly.

    He was lucky when he had helped some old lady with harvesting herbs and she had given him a healing herb that was said to help pokemon heal faster. He hoped that the old lady was right as he crushed the herb into a powder like form. He quickly coaxed the weak eevee to swallow the powder, to which after swallowing it, he gave it some water as it made a disgusting face. He hoped that the herb would do the trick and his eyes soon widened when he saw the wounds that were on the eevee start closing up leaving scabs in its place. He smiled in relief and looked down at the eevee and saw that it had closed its eyes, obviously exhausted from its ordeal. He gently scooped it up and carried the eevee back to a small inn that he had rented the night to stay in and careful checked on it to make sure it was healing well.

    Another three years passed and he became fast friends with the eevee and as they travelled back to his Port Vemillion, he noticed that the forest area had become quiet as he travelled with eevee. He looked down and saw that she too was uneasy at how quiet the forest was. He closed his eyes as he focused his hearing, trying to pinpoint any noises. His eyes flashed open when he heard a loud hiss and was caught off guard when he was hit from behind by a fairly heavy object. As he stood back up, wavering slightly off balance, he saw that it was an arbok, the same one that was attacking the eevee three years ago. Anger rushed through him and he reached down his side only to notice that his rapier was thrown far away from him. Panic ran through his eyes as he dodged the attacks arbok kept throwing at him, he saw that the eevee was acting rather strange.

    He was confused as to why she had her eyes closed and staring somehow straight at him with her eyes closed. He soon saw her glowing and he soon found himself glowing too, causing the arbok to hesitate as the glow soon brightened. As soon as the glow left, he noticed something very odd about him. In his right hand, he was holding a very elegant rapier similar to the one he used, but much longer and thicker than the one he used. He was soon distracted from the odd weapon as he heard the arbok making a leap and he quickly sidestepped it, amazed at how quickly he dodged it. He was soon amazed again as he launched into a flurry of attacks that seemed to blur in his eyes as he landed so many hits that left welts on the arbok. As he saw the arbok making one last attempt to attack him, he quickly leapt away, landing near his other rapier. He decided to end the arbok’s life with the one he used as he was sure that the one in his hands right now as was the eevee. He quickly ran forward, leaving a white streak and thrust through the arbok with the rapier, causing the arbok’s eyes to bulge and then it slumped forward, with its eyes no longer glinting with life. He wasn’t pleased with having to resort to killing, but he had to for both for the eevee and his sake. He closed his eyes, wanting to wish he didn’t have to see the corpse and he soon felt something rub his leg and looked down to see the eevee staring back at him with tears in her eyes. He saw that she had chosen to him to be her pact partner and that she needed comfort. He laid his rapier aside and softly gave the eevee a hug as she wept on him. Neither of them enjoyed the satisfaction of killing, but they both knew it was necessary to end the poor creature’s blind rage. He just hoped that there wouldn’t have to more bloodshed.

    Fighting Style:
    Cusa fights opponents with speed and precision in mind instead of brute force or magic power. He uses quick strikes and precise blocks to throw his opponents off balance. He doesn’t fare well against magicians or opponents with a range weapon as he has no defense against any ranged attacks. With speed being his best, he will close the distance between any opponents to go for a close combat for as long as possible. He likes to learn his opponent’s style as he battles so that he’ll be able to look for a weakness in their battle style and then exploit it. Cusa prefers to strike non-lethal blows and not incapacitate any opponent, rather letting them live after putting them in a position where the wrong move could end their lives, check mate as he coined the term.

    Weapon of Choice: A rapier reinforced with a slim coating of steel. It will still break to steelix and a few others, but it will survive a beating on any conventional weapons (non-soul weapons and swords smaller than a long sword. Two-handed swords will break the weapon along with any heavy weapons.)

    Pokemon:

    Species: Eevee

    Name: Casol

    Gender: Female ♀

    Description: Casol has white fur but retains the brown cuff around its neck and is often mistaken as a shiny pokemon.

    Personality:
    Casol loves to be cuddled with and will often beg for it, giving the sad look with the puppy eyes. She doesn’t trust anyone besides Cusa and is often hateful to others. She is slow to trust others and often gives them a cold shoulder. She can be quite painful to work with as she prefers to work with only Cusa. When she does warm up to the other pokemon, she is a quiet and emotional pokemon. She will hide her true emotions until she is only with those she trusts before she lets her emotions out. She isn’t exactly a tough opponent in battle, preferring to battle to the point where she can give up without continuing a pointless battle. Only if she’s called a coward will she become blind with rage and attempt to take a piece of the offender with her. Although she is quick in battle, she doesn’t enjoy battling as it is a constant reminder of what she had suffered and nearly died from.

    Soul Weapon:

    Type: Broad Rapier

    Description: The hilt is covered in an elegant brown with a bit of fur covering it similar to the cuff of eevee’s neck. It provides a firmer grip than it otherwise misleads other people to believe. The blade is a white blade looking like it was made for show, but it is in fact quite light, making it all the more lethal. The hold guard is shaped with the ears of the eevee and provides ample protection against bigger weapons.

    Attacks:

    Quick Attack – The blade moves quicker than can be seen and causes a blurring motion in the attacks. It can confuse the opponents if they aren’t careful. The impact is quite light and thus won’t do much damage.

    Swift – When the blade glows golden and Cusa makes a slashing motion, an arc of stars come out and homes in on the opponents. Depending on the number of stars and the size of them determines the power of the attack.

    Iron Tail [Iron Strike when in soul form] (Obviously it isn’t the tail with the rapier, just the official move.) – His blade takes on a bright light and he makes a swing that carries a lot of power in it and there are few moves that can completely stop the attack dead still. Although his weapon is considered a thrusting type of sword, he doesn’t utilize its strong point as he could end up killing someone.



    Soul Form:

    Description: Cusa sprouts a tail similar to eevee’s tail and his ears change so that is similar to eevee. His body becomes furry and turns white giving him insulation against cold at best. It does slow him a down a bit with the extra weight of fur. His eyes lose the pupils and become similar to those of the pokemon, giving him a slightly better vision although his sense of hearing is much improved with the eevee ears. He does shrink in height, becoming 5' and his arms and legs are a bit shorter as well.

    Attacks:

    Wish – Cusa is able to make a wish and recover a bit of his health at a later point in the battle. A small yellow star appears when he uses the move. Also, when he does recover, a golden orb descends on him and gives him a gentle yellow glow as it heals some of his wounds and health although fatal wounds will require a lot more than a wish to recover from.

    Double Team – Not great at it, he’s only able to make one copy of himself but if one person were to observe carefully, there is no shadow underneath copy.

    Humans

    Name: Rilex Olivine (Assumed last name. See History)

    Age: 16

    Gender: Male

    Hometown: A small farm to the west of Viridian Forest

    Description: Rilex is short for his age, also being described as a little wide. He is 5’6” and 175 pounds, as best as his mother last evaluated him. He is built strong because of his long days in the fields, though he is not toned. He has large arms and legs, which may not look like it, but are mostly muscle. Also because of his long days in the fields, he has a farmers tan. He has curly blonde-brown hair, that is long enough that he can see the ends of his bangs from his eyes. On humid days, his hair frizzes horrendously, though most of the time he keeps it clean and tidy. He has deep blue eyes, darker than the sky, but not quite as dark as the ocean. They seem to calm both pokemon and people. Many people automatically notice his strangely small nose, though he doesn't take offense from it. His body frame is often described as wide, though he wouldn't be considered obese. His face could be called a little fat, his cheek-bones being the opposite of pronounced. He head is also seems larger than his head, but not enough to be noticed by someone who is not studying him.

    Being a farmer, he still wears simple clothes, made of materials that were easy and simple to acquire. He currently has one set of clothes that include ripped pants, which were made from Mareep wool, that are a lightly tan color. He also has a short-sleeved cotton shirt, a light creme color, that was sewn by his mother. He wears a worn leather vest as well, with leather ties. His father told him it was Tarous leather, giving it a lot of durability. He wears wooden sandals, which are rare in the area that he lives in. They were a gift from his father.

    Personality: Rilex’s personality fits his body style. He is a slow and steady person, when compared to the rest of his family. Some have considered him lazy and a lousy worker, but his friends know that to be contradictory. He is very responsible, and when he sets goals, he goes for them no matter what. Easily described as 'Determined.' Although he is slow and steady, he cannot be described as shy. He has no problem talking to anyone he doesn't know, and asks questions to the point that it is annoying.

    Although he is a farmer, He did not inherit his family’s seemingly necessary desire to farm at all. He would much rather be an explorer and adventurer. His personality is very wonder-full. He often looses focus when working, and can’t keep his attention focus on the task on hand unless he really wants to be doing what he is doing. But his mind is full of information, and he just can’t stop acquiring more! This is why he asks so many questions.

    Although he seems to be a defensive person, he often takes insults as 'constructive criticism' and works to better himself because of it. This may make him seem oblivious, but he knows what one's intentions are when they say things. If it is a negative thing, he will probably bout back another insult to the person.

    Rilex in three words: Determined;Bold;and Out-going

    History: He does not know where he was born. A pidgeot carried him from over the western mountains in a basket, with nothing but a name and a medallion with a crest that said ‘Olivine Royal Family’ underneath. The woman who became his mother found him in the viridian forest, in a nest of Pidgey. She took him home, and she and her husband adopted the kid as their only son. They lived on a small farm, with only two acres of crops, and five taruos. They raised him up like their own, and he learned a great deal from them. Every day, he was either working in the field, or traveling to Viridian Castle for supplies or to hear the King’s Decrees. During the evenings, he lived in their humble sod house, built into a hill.

    To get to the castle from their farm, the family had to travel through the Viridian Forest, something Rilex always looked forward to. He loved hearing tales and legends about the forest, and began to memorize different paths through it.

    One of Rilex’s favorite stories about the forest was about a place deep in the forest where a nest of a certain pokemon from the west were said to live. He would search every moment he could for this the nest, but could never find it. Years passed, and his life didn’t change. It wasn’t until the event that his child-hood dream would be fulfilled.

    He was traveling through the forest, coming back from a King’s decree. He went alone, since he was 15, his parents trusted him to come back with the message. It was about land annexation. The kingdom was expanding and they needed land. Rilex wasn’t too concerned (though to his parents, this could be a life changing decree) and as such, decided to explore some more in the Viridian forest. While searching a den, he stepped on a twig, or what he thought was a twig. A screech alerted him that it was not. A Raichu awoke and began to chase Rilex deeper and deeper into the forest. He tripped into a clearing, where the Raichu walked in, sparks at its cheeks. It suddenly meekened, and ran from the clearing as quick as possible. He closed his eyes, but was protected by something. When the explosions subsided, he opened his eyes to see a strange round ball he couldn’t identify. It opened up, with four spouts and two eyes looking at him. ‘Forretress..?’ It seemed to ask. He got up and looked into the eyes. It was a Forretress.

    From that moment on, they became the soul mates they were destined to be. Because of their seclusion to the world, neither of them had heard of the pokemon pacts, but only rumors. They unconscionably mad their pact.

    They both worked on the family farm until the king annexed it. At that point, the parents became servants for the king. Their last wish was that their son set out to find out where he came from, and to follow his dreams. He is doing just that, as he and his pokemon he calls ‘Forrest’ set out to find out if any royal family could identify the Olivine Family Crest.

    The bond was made a few months later, They were living in the Viridian forest, training to become knights. The bond happened by accident: After training for a whole day, Rilex was shaking, as he stood, though he heard a strange murmuring from all around. ‘Pineco… Pineco… Pineco…’ He looked all around, but couldn’t spot the pokemon. Then a shining, and small explosions, as whatever the pokemon were, self-destructed around him. He immediately jumped behind Forrest, and grabbed onto his protective body. In a flash of shining light, Forrest had become a shield. A Three Quarter-body tower shield. Rilex got an amazing Idea, and ordered an attack. Iron defense protected him from the small explosions, and him and Forest fended off the Pineco, and from then on, realized they were special.

    Fighting Style: He hasn’t quite fought too often. When he has to, he uses defense as his offense. Wasn’t that a saying? ‘The best Offense is a good Defense.” Or was it vice versa.. Anyhow, he uses Forrest as his shield, and his pitchfork to attack from the sides. For him, with his back to a wall is the best place to be.

    Weapon of Choice: A four-foot long pitchfork from his farming days. He keeps it sharp, and stores on his back.

    Other: He carries his medal around with him everywhere. He always considers it good luck.


    Pokemon

    Species: Forretress

    Name: Forrest after the forest that they met.

    Gender: Male

    Description: Forretress is actually hundreds of years old. As such, he has developed a gold shell. Yes, he is a 'odd colored' Pokemon. Because he is a rare pokemon, Rilex hasn’t realized this. His shell is as tough as diamonds, and even his spikes are made of gold. His red inside part are the same as any other Forretress'. The actual inside body of a Forretress has never been seen, and as such, cannot be described.
    Forrest is abnormally small (actually, it is because of how old he is, he has become extra dense) so he only has a three foot diameter (4' being close to normal) and his weight Ratio brings him to 200 Lbs.

    Personality: Before he met Rilex, he was shy and just sat at his tree, like the Pineco around him. As time passed, he began to wonder about what was outside his clearing, and outside the forest. Eventually he got the nerve to move, which he found he couldn’t. His tiny body in the armor wasn’t strong enough to hop. He did learn how to roll, however, in which he did occasionally.

    Since meeting Rilex, he has become more and more bold, as he learns about the world. He moves normally now (well, rolls anyhow) and has learned alot about farming, and what Rilex has told him about the outside world. He is very excited for their new journey.

    Other: He is 'odd colored' on the armor. His inside-part is still red though.


    Soul Weapon

    Type: Three-quarter body tower shield.

    Description: A shield that is three-quarters of the body. The user crouches behind it to shield his entire body, though this makes him immobile. Can be wielded with one hand for offensive and travel, or two hands in dire situations.

    The outer side which takes attacks is made of the same material as Forrest’s armor, and as such, is golden. The inner side, the padded side, is the red color of Forrest’s armor. The shield is amazingly light, though that is in comparison to its size. It actually weighs a lot, so only one with a higher level of strength could use it efficiently.

    The front of the shield has four spikes, which are reminiscent of the four spouts that are on Forrest. It can be thrusted at an enemy for offensive capabilities.

    Attacks:
    Iron Defense: The shield gains an inner level of armor. Consequentially, the shield also gains weight.
    Spikes: The spikes shoot off the shield, landing in an enemy or as a trap for future purposes. The spikes on the shield grow back almost instantaneously.
    Magnet Rise: The Shield uses electro-magnetivity, to float, allowing the user to ride like a skate board or a surf board.
    Mirror Shot: A flash of light that is stored energy in the shield. Blinds and slightly damages the enemy.

    Soul Forme

    Description: When the time is correct, Forrest and Rilex will combine to become the most awesome defensive creature ever to roam the land. After a flash of light, one humanoid creature is left. It is covered in armor, mainly gold with red joints, and a full helmet that hides the inside completely. What you don’t know is that the body takes to form of the inner body of a Forretress, which, nobody knows what it looks like. So, of course, I am not going to tell you what it looks like. This creature has the amazing defense of a Forretress combined with the strength of Rilex. The four spouts have become a single cannon which is on the wrist of the right hand.

    Attacks:
    Zap Cannon: The cannon gathers energy, which sends a powerful electrical shot towards the enemy
    Explosion: A last-chance suicide move that ends the Soul Forme session, and leaves both the human and pokemon users separated and unconscious. It is the most powerful attack known to anyone, though.

    Notes:
    I know the descriptions are really short and bad, but on other sites, we find pictures and just explain the changes, so I am no quite good at that yet. Has been edited and passed.
    They have not reached Soul Forme yet.
    If Forrest cannot be partial-shiny, that is fine. He is now 'Odd Colored'
    And I am confused about the 'I read the rules...'
    I read 'em, but they contradict.. Let's just leave it at 'I am confused' or...
    Let's just drop it.
    Pretend that is not there...
    EDIT1: Also, I don't know if they can read each other's thoughts, so if it's a no, they just did because it was the first moment they met, if a yes, then they just talk.
    EDIT2: Took some time to format it.
    EDIT3: 'Odd-Colored' Has been added. Also added more description on Description and Personality. Also updated Explosion details to fit the request.
    EDIT3.5: In the middle of adding more description. We are going to town for lunch, so will finish later.
    EDIT4: Finished the above edits. Rilex's description and history were updated. Forrests personality got a small update as well. Changed description of Spikes to include 'The spikes on the shield grow back instantaneously'
    EDIT5: Finished

    This sounds positively amazing. Might I request a reserve?

    Edit: Well that was quite a fail on my part. Expect my sign up later tonight or tomorrow (the later being the most likely). I'm leaning towards either a vulpix, kabuto, or nidoran M/F pair as my partner/s.

    Geez. Seeing you guys get all of yours up makes me feel guilty for not working on my SU. I guess I better review each of you in turn.

    @ryodragonite: First of all, I'd suggest spacing things out and making the format look nicer. Just as a reference for your future SUs, GMs will look much more kindly upon an SU that looks neat and is easy to read. Moving on, It's be nice if you had left in the labels for Human, Pokemon, Soul Weapon, and Soul Forme. It adds to the neatness I mentioned earlier. I also suggest placing your attacks on seperate lines. Moving right along, a larger weapon like the Arm Cannon you described is going to be much heavier and slower than you think. It also doesn't make much sense for the Pokemon who becomes it; Luxray is more of a physical attacker, and most of it's attacks (including the ones you put in). If anything, a sword or a trident would make more sense. Your attack descriptions are vague (slashing in darkness? where does the darkness come from? How does just slashing someone while it's dark make it deal dark-element damage?) You also didn't add in attack descriptions at all for your soul forme. Pending, so go fix those before you ask for another review.

    @Slipomatic: Indeed, you are under the length limit in both description and personality, although your history looks great. I notice that there is more detail you can add to make your character easier to picture. Hair Style? Skin tone? Is he muscular or weak? Also, lengthen personality a bit more. We need to be able to close our eyes and picture this character perfectly based on the info you give us. A couple other unimportant things, but worth noting; You have enough room under your soul weapon for one more attack, as the max is 4. Also, since Double Team is activated in Soul Forme, it should have an incredible amount of power. Yes, they shouldn't have shadows, but no, they should be numerous and confusing. You just won't be able to hold it out for long until you are more practiced with it.Pending.

    @Zalck: Like above, More detail on Personality and Description! I know it's hard, but trust me, it'll be better for you in the long run. Also, Explosion as a last-ditch attack is just great, but it would fit the attack if it also KO'd the user, rather than just canceling Soul Forme. After all, you could merely activate Soul Forme again, giving you near-infinite explosions with enough stamina. I do like the idea of a partially shiny pokemon, but rather than say it's only half shiny, let's go with "oddly colored". Pending.

    @onixan: As I explained in one of my last posts, I am Not accepting reserves. Thanks for reading THE RULES.

    EDIT: Good. Next time, I suggest you check first.

    Oh I could add more to the soul form... Let's just say it wouldn't be rated PG-13 anymore lol. Btw, technically I pass with bare minimum, I just don't like separating paragraphs and I'm not a visual type person. I will say that expect a long time before details are updated.... I have left the spot open under attacks because my character is already Overpowered as is. Besides, since I'm planning on evolving the eevee (haven't decided on what evolution,) I'd rather wait down the road.

    Btw, which personality section as there is two so clarification on that one and same with description. I could add more to soul forme descriptiong but as I stated earlier, it'll be downright messy. Aka mixing male and female and what do you get... more than you can bargain for in terms of being rated pg-13. Sooooooooooo your call. I can add more and still keep it pg-13... It just won't be a good job.

    Also two words, too picky. I give up, consider me denied.

    I have done the initial update. I am unsure if it will pass this time or not. But I did add the explosion details and the 'odd color' change to the profile, as well as some more details.

    I will continue to work on details as harvest rolls around and I will be spending almost my entire day in a wheat truck. Getting bored is just the beginning in that thing...
    None-the-less, I await a re-evaluation for the time being!

    After a few days of being lost,he found himself in Saffron Junction.With nowhere to go and nothing to do,Simon joined the Saffron Dojo.There,he learned how to fight.To train,Simon had to find a weapon which he wanted to use.After a few days,he found a scythe with a black handle and a sharp blade.At the age of 14,after 5 years in the dojo,He learned how to wield his scythe,and he was incredibly good at using it as a weapon.He quit the dojo,because he wanted to explore the world.after a year of exploring(At the age of 15),Simon found a old,haunted tower.He entered,and soon after,he got to the top.From the tower you could see most of the Region.Then,he saw a man with a magician's staff chasing a Ghastly.The man was trying to kill the ghost pokemon,so that the tower wouldn't be haunted.The Ghastly hen hid behind Simon."Move out of the way."The man said.Simon Didn't want the Ghastly to die,so he replied "Sorry,but I can't let you do that"."Then both of you will die!"The man shouted,then charged at Simon with his staff.Simon took out his Scythe and blocked.Then,Simon saw what looked like a Houndour behind him.Then,there was a flash of light,The man and the staff changed.The Houndour Disappeared,and the staff had a lot of resemblance to the pokemon.Then,the man fired a fireball from his staff at Simon.Simon got hit,and fell on the ground."Now to get rid of the ghost."The man said.Simon got up,and picked up his scythe."No"Simon said."So you want to die?"The man said,Then he fired another fireball.The Ghastly the got in front of Simon and Fired a shadow ball to stop the attack.Then,there was a bright flash of light.Simon had no idea what was happening.After the light cleared,Simon looked at his hands.They were replaced by bones,and on the ground there was a different scythe,which looked much more powerful.He picked up the scythe,and attacked the man.After around two minutes of fighting,the man was getting angry.He fired a giant fire blast at Simon.Simon panicked.He didn't know what to do.Then,he turned into a shadow,appeared behind the man,and Sliced the man's head off.The man's transformation ended.The man was lying on the floor with blood surrounding him.His staff shattered,and it turned back into a houndour,which was also dead.Simon transformed back,and saw the Ghastly next to him.The powerful scythe has disappeared,and, He put his normal scythe away.

    I finally finish my sign-up only to see that there's a person with the same name as my character and a Gastly. O.O' It's a bit too late to change it now, tough, so sorry, gameboy; I totally didn't mean to steal your idea.

    I'm still a bit confused about the limitations of spells... but that's what the edit button is for, right? ^_^

    Name: Simon Sharpe
    Age: 17
    Gender: Male
    Hometown: Saffron City
    Description: Average height, below average weight… in truth, Simon’s physique is quite bland. He doesn’t have as much physical strength as most people do, and while he does try to wear his clothes a bit bigger than normal, it shows. His skin is exceptionally pale – not because he spends most of his day in the scriptorium (which he doesn’t), but simply because it has always been that color and refuses to change. Oddly enough, his white skin isn’t burned easily by the sun; well, all but the top of his nose, which, if one looks closely, will always be a bit redder than the rest of his face. In fact, he wears glasses just to detract attention from his nose – the extra power to his already dimming eyesight is an added bonus.

    He keeps his glasses clean and aligned for a proper, businesslike appearance, allowing his blue eyes to stand out behind the circular glass and add a bit of color to his pale features. A bundle of earthy brown hair completes the set; cared for, but let free to go whichever way it wishes to atop his head. Longer than some, it never falls into his eyes, (though it may sit above them). A proper smile can always be found grinning on his face. In terms of apparel, Simon is never without his worn dark green overcoat with a light grey trim. The coat covers over his arms - white cuffs dawn on the wrists – and falls to the halfway point of his legs. Three black buttons also hold the coat in place. Though, like most of his clothes, it fits bigger and can be a bit stuffy at times, Simon personally rates his durable jacket a four-star necessity to his civilized attire.

    Along with his overcoat, Simon sports a faded linen shirt and a pair of black linen trousers, both of which are in need of replacements. (Thankfully, his overcoat manages to hide some of the ‘worn’ areas of the clothing). Around his neck during colder times is a yellow tie-like scarf, which is as practical as it is comfortable. A pair of leather boots, reinforced with wood to keep water out, keeps his feet safe from the swampy terrain that is his workstation. A set of leather, fingerless gloves finishes the costume. After all, you can’t go wrong with gloves.

    Regardless of season, Simon includes a brown leather belt with his attire at all times. It goes around his overcoat, (making it look a bit more like a tunic than a coat). On his belt is a metal sheath that is supposed to hold a dagger, though he has used it to hold the bolts needed for the Crucibow (his soul weapon). So, where’s the dagger? At the moment, Simon is using it as a handy bookmark for his scientifically-inclined journal. His pen nests itself behind his ear when not in use.

    Personality: One quick glance at Simon will tell anyone that he isn’t the strongest guy in the world. His arms and legs are practically twigs, just waiting to be broken. Anyone could beat him in a battle without breaking a sweat. In fact, they’d probably slice him in half and use him as a pen. At least, that’s what Simon thinks the soldiers and workers around him say. He’s always had a humble, under-confident perspective of himself. It’s the reason why he has a tendency to give up quickly, to shirk away from duties that he knows he’ll mess up it.

    It’s the reason he runs away.

    If you look up the word ‘coward’ in a dictionary, you’ll probably see Simon’s name underneath it in big, bold letters. Simon had never been a courageous kid, and that cowardliness never left him, even as he grew. He’d easily watch his friend get beat on by a bully, too afraid to do anything to help. If a thief came up to him with a knife, he’d run away as fast as he could instead of trying to reprimand the man himself. Running away is really his only skill. He can run faster than a rampaging Rapidash if the nerve hit him. Running away is his motto; it’s who he is, what he does. He’s too weak to fight, so what would standing up give him? A black eye and a bloody arm? What’s the point of saving someone if you can’t even save yourself?

    Now, this doesn’t mean that he’s cowardly when it comes to work. In fact, Simon is more than eager to take on a rigorous assignment… providing it doesn’t have too much physical activity. No, Simon’s cowardliness is limited to his physical wellbeing. Brains over brawn, as they always say. There’s people who fight, and there’s people who take flight. Simon is the one who takes off for space. In fact, there is only time he can really believe that he had courage… but that was a while ago, and it probably won’t happen again.

    Despite his fears, Simon is actually quite knowledgeable, especially when folklore and legends are involved. He’s always had an interest in the unexplained, in myths and tales that could never truly be proven. Dreams of discovering hidden ruins, or a hidden land beyond the west pervade his thoughts. Of course, he could never do any real exploring. He’s too weak; too fearful. He’d be dead before he climbed the first cliff…

    Unlike most soldiers, workers, and civilians, Simon isn’t very fond of battle. Sure, he’ll watch two knights fight each other in an organized duel, but ‘uncivilized’ fighting is just… uncultured. It’s for this reason that he winds up being a peacemaker when two people are fighting. Analyzing is one of his strong points, and he can usually work out an agreement between two fighting parties… if both aren’t steaming with bloodlust, of course.

    History: Simon spent the early years of his childhood in Celadon City, where his family owned a small house near the city’s diminishing river. His father was a scholar, a wise man who spent most of his time locked away in his study. His mother was a woman who felt her family needed more muscle in their bloodline. The two had very different styles of raising, styles that conflicted with each other at every possible point. And in the middle of it all was Simon.

    Seeing as his father rarely had a chance to take in sunlight, let alone talk to him, he took to his mother’s ideals. Strength, agility, chivalry… that was what a man needed to gain honor and prestige. Her words seemed true to Simon; at least, that was the goal that most of the other boys were following. Becoming soldiers, joining the ranks of the Kanto Knights… it seemed that everyone wanted to be as amazing and fantastic as the Knights were. As soon as he hit 10, the minimal age, his family sent him to apprentice as a soldier in order to gain the honor of becoming a Knight’s apprentice.

    All looked well on the outside. He could get through the drills – not well, but he could drag himself through them. He could pick up a sword and swing it in a way that made it look like cunning, though it was really just him wavering at the training weapon’s massive weight. But things went wrong as soon as he entered indoors. The generals above him noticed his sluggish learning speed of combat and punished him for it. The boys who apprentices alongside him knew he was weaker than they were, and they took advantage of it. By a year of apprenticeship under the generals, Simon knew that strength and agility were far out of his league.

    He returned home and began studying as a scholar, much to his mother’s disapproval. Learning information, writing notes, reading literature… it was all ten times easier than his apprentice ship under the generals. By the time he was fifteen, he had gathered enough knowledge to make a living under it. Unfortunately, his mother realized it to. “Since you’re so sharp,” she had said, “You probably know everything about living on your own. You don’t need my help anymore. Perhaps you should just leave and prove to the world how your useless little thoughts will somehow help you to live like an honorable man.”

    He gathered his belongings the following morning and left that night for Saffron.

    As he walked toward Saffron City, however, he felt a presence behind him. Turning, he spotted a pair of red eyes staring at him through the bushes. A few blinks later, it had disappeared, and he continued walking. The eyes disappeared and reappeared several times throughout his journey to Saffron. At the time, he had only taken it as an illusion…

    Finally, he came upon Saffron City, and began work with the scriptorium as a scholar and researcher for an exploration team that combed over undiscovered areas both near and far to Kanto’s inhabitants. For a while, he worked out of an unkept room at a nearby inn until the scriptorium gifted him with a place to stay. Granted, it was only a small room and a cramped study, but anything was better than the inn. For about a year, he worked in the scriptorium, researching unclassified plants or objects.

    Eventually, he was given a field project near the Lavender Swamps. Seeing as the Swamps were life risking (and supposedly haunted), it took him two days to muster enough strength and step out of the scriptorium. He was to examine the area around the swamp’s border, not the swamp itself, though the idea of getting near a place like that was frightening. On his first trip to the swamp, he stepped into the zone, saw the red eyes that had followed him to Saffron, and felt a piercing scream ring in his ears. Needless to say, he ran. Screaming.

    Two great pieces of literature and three days later, Simon returned to the area around the swamp. This time, no piercing screams and demon eyes haunted him. Slowly, his work took his closer and closer to the swamp’s edge. By the time he was finished, he could practically feel the humid air of the swamp sucking him into its center. He turned to leave, taking only a few steps when the same piercing scream echoed in his ears. He turned quickly, spotted two ghostly figures (a Misdreavus and a Dusclops, though he didn’t recognize the species at the time), took off running… and was plowed into the ground by a powerful punch.

    Simon doesn’t really know what happened next, as he had slipped into unconsciousness only a few minutes after being struck. Sometime later, though, he woke up, lying on soggy ground near the swamp’s edge with a Haunter staring into his face. As usual, he jerked away and tried to run off, but the force of the blow hadn’t yet worn off, and he fell to the ground again. The Haunter simply stared at him, as if unsure of what to do. Finally, it floated over and touched Simon on the shoulder. Expecting a shiver, Simon cringed as the pointed finger fell on his shoulder. But instead of a shiver, he felt a wave of warmth flow through him, letting him stand up strongly. The two stared at each other for a brief moment, and Simon walked away calmly. Yes, calmly. Even he couldn’t believe it at the time.

    He was given a few more assignments at the swamp, at task that involved him visiting the area every other day. As usual, it took his a great amount of preparation to even step near the place. From the moment he started visiting the swamp, the same Haunter would appear from the shadows and follow him around happily. And the worst part? Simon couldn’t figure out why he didn’t mind.

    The strangest occurrence Simon had ever seen happened on one of these days. As usual, Geist followed him from the shadows. For a while, everything was peaceful… far too peaceful, it seemed. As Simon walked along the edge of the swamp, a hand appeared from behind the shadows and grabbed his arm. Screaming, Simon tried to pull away, but the hand was too strong. As he felt himself being dragged into the swamp, he heard a cry, and the hand let go, thrusting him to the ground. When he looked up, he noticed Geist fighting the mysterious creature… and being knocked to the ground. Running over to Geist, he pulled the Pokémon away just as a Shadow Ball collided with the ground. The two looked at each other for a moment, a bright light flashed… and Geist had transformed into a crossbow.

    Simon picked up the crossbow and ran away, plummeting to the ground as another Shadow Ball collided with the back of his leg. The attacker, a Dusclops, or so it appeared, had left the swamp, and was heading toward him with large steps. Without thinking, Simon picked up the crossbow, closed his eyes, and shot. A scream resounded into silence, and, when he opened his eyes, the Dusclops was gone, Geist sat beside him smiling… and Simon collapsed on the ground, sighing in relief.

    Fighting Style: F-f-f-fighting? Oh, you have it all wrong. Simon isn’t a fighter. He can barely hold a sword properly, let alone his bookmark-dagger (which is really used for cutting, anyway). In a city like Saffron, people don’t need to fight; they just need to run in the opposite direction as fast as they possibly can. And, being the thin person that he is, Simon’s great at running away. If he was in a battle, well, he’d probably try to use his intellect to find his opponents weak point – long-range or short; power, speed, or tact – and then exploit it to his advantage. If that didn’t work, then he might try to use a spell to give him an advantage. But fighting… fighting is just out of the question. So let’s not talk about fighting; after all, he had barely learned to use a dagger before Geist came along…

    Weapon of Choice: He owns a dagger (which isn't too sharp on one side and is mostly used for cutting.) For the most part, though, Simon’s weapon of choice is his feet. After all, it’s pretty hard to run away on your hands.

    Pokemon

    Species: Haunter
    Name: Geist
    Gender: Male
    Description: In his main Haunter form, Geist looks like your average, every-day Haunter. Closer inspection, however, reveals a few unique traits. While most Haunter have four fingers on each hand, Geist only has three. Also, when he open his mouth, the inside, including his tongue, are a spooky light green, rather than a life-like pink. Speaking of his tongue, Geist’s is one inch longer than the average Haunter tongue, and while it may not seem like much, he takes pride in it.

    Geist has a tendency to stay in a gaseous form, as it makes him appear more threatening and it better for sneaking in the shadows. In this form, his features are blackened, making him appear like a ghostly silhouette, and his eyes disappear into hollow spaces. This form also allows Geist to phase through walls, better than when in his main form.

    Personality: In many ways, Geist is the opposite of Simon, the most prominent being in their amount of pride. Stubborn and determined, Geist will never back down from a challenge, no matter how difficult it appears to be. Though he has a tendency not to know when to back down from a fight, his dogged battle skills propel him through even the most painful wounds and toughest opponents. He’ll listen to none but Simon’s own words, and doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. In Brain vs. Brawn, Fight vs. Flight, Geist in completely brawn and fight.

    He has a quick temper, and loves a good battle. Fighting is in his blood; it’s his drug, and he couldn’t live without it. His ‘long’ tongue is his main weapon, as it can steal an opponent’s life-force with its ghostly abilities. Since he’s a ghost, he doesn’t care much about dying, and is quick to attack, even when retaliation can prove fatal. In a sense, Geist has a boatload of courage… then again, he doesn’t have much to fear if he’s already dead.

    Geist is a joker at heart, and a cruel one at that, content to watch a Bellsprout burn from a torch falling on its head just for his enjoyment. But despite his low moral values, Geist is extremely loyal to those who are his companions, braving his life to rescue them from danger. He may not be the most trustworthy partner – or the most careful – but he truly does care for his friends. It just so happens that he doesn’t mind watching the rest of the world suffer….

    Soul Weapon


    Type: Crossbow-Claw Combination (affectionately called the Crucibow)
    Description: The Crucibow is a unique weapon, adaptable to both long-range tactics and short-range combat via its ability to change between crossbow form and claw form. Though the technique to change between types of weaponry can be, at times, a bit slow, its versatility in fighting styles makes it useful in almost all situations. Geist can transform into any one of the two forms when turning from Pokémon to weapon; however, once in weapon state, the Crucibow must be manually changed through forms by Simon.

    In its long-range, crossbow form, the Crucibow portrays itself as the two floating hands of Geist. Each piece of the Crucibow is made of mysterious, char-colored wood that is as light as it is durable. A sturdy wire, held by a bow decorated at its ends by two menacing, raggedly curving points turning away from its user, is held slightly back by purplish metal hand. This system is mounted on a base which itself is shaped like an enlarged version of the Haunter’s outstretched hand. Unlike most crossbows, which have only one firing point, the Crucibow has three, each resting off one of the hand’s ‘fingers’. The angle of the left and right points can be adjusted individually using the Haunter-eye-shaped gears on the sides of the crossbow’s base.

    When changing the Crucibow from crossbow to claw form, Simon presses a button hidden in a small wooden compartment of the Crucibow. Once the button is pressed, the ghostly hand holding the wire folds into a three-point triangle and moves downward, bringing a limper bow-and-wire system down with it. Instead of breaking, like regular wood, the Crucibow actually bends, folding like the first hand. The three ‘fingers’ release three jagged points, and the two curved ends of the original bow interlock. A hand can easily fit behind the interlocking ends, and can sturdy the claw by holding onto a vertical piece of wood leftover from the original Crucibow design. In this form, the Crucibow acts… well, like a clawed hand, whose fingers are unfortunately immobile. Transformation back to the Crucibow requires another press of the button, and proceeds through the reverse of the technique listed above.

    Attacks:
    + Shadow Claw – In crossbow form, the Crucibow releases a set of three bolts, each imbued with ghostly power, which in turn slash the opponent in a claw-like formation. In claw form, the Crucibow is used like a regular Shadow Claw, coursing ghostly energy through the glove and slashing the opponent.

    + Dark Pulse – In crossbow form, a set of three bolts imbued with great amounts of dark energy are shot from the Crucibow. Upon contact with an obstacle, a bolt will explode, sending bursts of energy across a small scale. Pulses from the bursts can be felt, though they don’t do much damage. In claw form, a sphere of dark energy is formed between the Crucibow’s three ‘fingers’ and thrown at the opponent, exploding on contact with an obstacle.

    + Ice Punch – In crossbow form, three bolts infused with ice energy are sent at the enemy. During flight, the bolts freeze and merge together into an icy, fist-like projectile, which hits the foe for great damage. In claw form, this move is used similarly to a regular Ice Punch, except that it slashes the opponent with icy claws rather than with a frigid punch.

    + Hypnosis – The only move that doesn’t change in style depending on weapon form. When used, the Crucibow releases an flash of eerie red light. Those who witness the light (other than the user) fall into a trance-induced sleep. (Further experience using the move may produce better results, but at the moment, this move appears to have a 70% hit ratio.)

    Soul Forme

    Description: In his Soul Forme, Simon transforms from a sophisticated, proper scholar into a maniacal, undead spirit. His brown overcoat turns deep black, unbuttons, and is thrown back, ripped by invisible claws, to form an eerie, regal cape. His other clothes become tattered as well, turning into darker versions of themselves. Light grey turns to dark grey, yellow transforms into purple, and black… well, black stays black. His belt, which once held his belongings, is turned to dust, letting anything on him to float freely around him. Leather boots turn dark, worn, and stained by graveyard dirt. The entire form takes on a forgotten, mistreated appearance.

    His skin turns white, void of color and life, and his eyes take on a sickly, yellowish appearance. The pupils themselves become pinpoints, barely visible, yet vision itself is untouched, if only a bit darker. His brown hair is dyed red, blood red, darkening the further it runs down his hair. Dark rings form under his swollen eyes. Even worse so are his hands, whose arms mysteriously disappear, allowing them to float casually through the air, encased by a red aura. Besides his hands, a red aura also appears around Simon whenever he uses a move.

    Perhaps the most horrific change is in expression. A wide, maniacal grin makes its home on Simon’s face, one that cannot be removed. It tends to make its voice waver from whisper to shout, giggling randomly between sentences. Though it’s probably just a side effect of being inexperienced, Simon himself cannot stand to have his face dirtied by such a malevolent expression. After all, it’s very hard to convince people that you’re sane when you’re smiling like you’re about to kill them with an axe.

    In this form, Simon has the ability to move through solid objects, much like a Haunter’s ability to. When phasing through an object, Simon’s body becomes gaseous in state. His features darken and fade into the flickering, non-solid figure that becomes his body, and his yellow eyes are sucked into the gas, leaving only an empty space. It is in this state that Simon resembles Geist the most. At his experience, however, he can’t hold this form long enough to phase through anything.

    Attacks:
    + Curse – When properly executed, Simon will take his bookmark dagger, chant the curse, and hold the point to his chest. Hex symbols appear from his shadow, glowing brightly as he swiftly and dramatically stabs himself in the heart, inflicting pain on his entire body. Once the act is finished, the symbols release a dozen evil spirits, who attack and inflict a torturous curse on the victim. Though Simon is unable to actually die while using the move, he simply refuses to perform it, due to its demonic nature, unless no other option is available.

    + Revenge – Simon and Geist summon all the agony they’ve felt from the wrongdoings done to them, using the grudge to fuel their fighting spirits and unleash a devastating attack on their enemy. The move tends to be fueled by Geist more than Simon, seeing as it is not Simon’s nature to hold a grudge… or a fighting spirit.

    @Slipomatic: Your Soul Forme description is fine, and believe me, your character isn't overpowered. It's your main character's description and personality that are lacking. They only reach about half the length they should be. Still, if you are deciding to leave, I will respect your decision.

    @Zalck: Personality is now long enough, but Description needs to be a bit longer. Also, may I reccommend not typing short, undescriptive sentences like "he has blue eyes" and replace it with something more fun to read like "his wide, almond-shaped eyes sparkle with a radiant shade of blue". This adds length, as well as keeping me from getting bored reading all these SUs. Otherwise, your character is in the clear. Pending.

    @gameboy350: I won't even bother reading that until you fix it up. Your paragraphs have no spacing in between the sentences and punctuation. Better yet, restart, but do it right this time.Denied.

    @Pokefan0234: Not to worry, your position is secure. However, in this world, the only magical abilities that exist are the ones gaine through Soul Weapons. Get rid of that, and you'll be Accepted. The others should be using yours as an example. I particularly cannot wait to see how you roleplay this coward, who somewhat reminds me of Ussop from One Piece.

Moving on, It's be nice if you had left in the labels for Human, Pokemon, Soul Weapon, and Soul Forme. It adds to the neatness I mentioned earlier. I also suggest placing your attacks on seperate lines. Moving right along, a larger weapon like the Arm Cannon you described is going to be much heavier and slower than you think. It also doesn't make much sense for the Pokemon who becomes it; Luxray is more of a physical attacker, and most of it's attacks (including the ones you put in). If anything, a sword or a trident would make more sense. Your attack descriptions are vague (slashing in darkness? where does the darkness come from? How does just slashing someone while it's dark make it deal dark-element damage?) You also didn't add in attack descriptions at all for your soul forme. Pending, so go fix those before you ask for another review.
    Sorry about that. Alright done everything is changed. Even the soul weapon. Hope its better this time.

    Ussop? Sorry; not much of a One-Piece fan.

    And the spells disappear! Like magic... O.O (Heheh... ahhh, I'll stop talking now. ^_^ ) Anyways, it's all fixed up; I hope feet count as a weapon of choice, 'cause otherwise, Simon's stuck with his bookmark.

    Okay, Edit 4 is complete!
    The bottom of my post explains what I have done in the most recent update. Look there for the changes.
    I Wish to ask for another re-evaluation, when you find time, of course.
