The Special League - Pokemon/Mario PvP RPG [Open for Sign Ups]
Latias Arena. This 400,000 capacity stadium, located on a beautiful island resort town just outside of Sinnoh, this is the home of the Special League, where Pokemon Trainers of all backgrounds and even "talking" Pokemon, forming independent teams, gather from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and other exotic locations, To compete in the prestigious Special League. Recently though, there have been a fair number of contestants hailing from a far off place called the Mushroom Kingdom, even having the guts to fight Pokemon without assistance. They have also brought with them new styles of battling, and even Badges mean something entirely different. They even bring with them special Equipment that bestows effects so bizarre Devon Corp. and Silph Co. are paying top dollar to replicate it's effects. It's gotten to the point where the Special League has redrawn the rules to account for the new arrivals. The Special League has earned a "special" place in the Pokemon League due to this, and it's assumed that the top ranked fighters, Pokemon or not, has a fair chance of defeating even a Regional Champion, as Jane Harrison, the 2008 Champion, demonstrated when she defeated Lance, the then Kanto regional champion. In these circumstances, it is anyone's game, and even the lowliest of Goombas and Rattatas have a chance to win fame, fortune, and prestige.
This is The Special League's Main Thread, where Battles and RP happen. Other stuff, like announcements, links to newsletter articles, and shops, are also on this thread. Please be aware this RPG is open to new players at any time, as it emphasizes the "Game" part of RPG, though there is a good amount of role-playing, as per Serebii RPG rules.

Spirit: Well...now that where here, I can't believe I got stuck with you!
Spark: You had chosen to work with me, am I correct?
Spirit: Yeah, but I wanted to go with my sweet Scarlot, I had only said yes to you because I figured it would be the only way of getting in.
Spark: Spirit...you do realize we must work together, correct? If we do not, then we are sure to lose.
Spirit: Pfffft....If we have items we can't lose!
Spark: Items? Oh yes, we should go to the item mart before anyone challanges us. But what items should we buy?
Spirit: Just wait until we get their. Then we see what items they have for sale!
(walks over to item mark) Spark: Well?
Spirit: We'll but one ether and one potion please. 8+15...thats 23. Here's 23 coins. 50-23=27. We'll have 27 coins left!
Spark: You didn't even consider what I wanted to buy....
Spirit: (sarcasticly) Oh, I'm sorry. I think I know what this team needs!
Spark: pfffft...(quietly) sure Spirit...sure you do....
Okay, so did I do this correctly? Just checking....

OOC: You got the basic idea, but script form isn't really good around here. Try writing it as you were writing a book, like this:
Graff and Brang wander around the resort town area outside Latias Stadium. The variously tall buildings marketed shops of all sorts, though almost none had items the two recognized, as they found out entering a shop labeled "Poke Mart" and checked out the wares.
"Brang, what in the Underwhere is an Ether? Who needs this much stuff for their pets?" The Hammer Bro. loudly wondered to his pal as he held the item in question, a silver jar... Thing holding what appeared to be a purple liquid.
"Graff, you've been around here for a while. I'd thought you knew what this stuff was. If fact you said yourself 'These Pokemon aren't tough. I could take them on.' That's why we're in this place, and not in Isle Delfino getting a tan or playing at the hotel casino."
Graff, reminded by Brang's remark, took out the Special League flier that convinced him to come here. the front showed a picture of Latias Stadium itself, a huge place that looked more like a re-purposed palace, with towers spiraling in the sky, beautiful stone walls, and retrofitted high-tech equipment, than the traditional image Graff associated with stadiums.
"I suppose your right, let's get acquainted with our new thrashing grounds, Brang."
"Whatever you say, Graff."
The two head out the shops and toward the arena, as both Humans and Pokemon stared at the duo weirdly(one Vulpix even gave in inquisitive 'Vulpix?' yelp.)
"Graff, these people look like they've never seen a Koopa before. You think we signed up for the right league?"
"100% Sure. I got the exact same looks in Veilstone. I even had to fight off some creepy guys in weird suits a few times. Just leave em alone, they'll get used to it."
The two finally, after what seemed like hours of walking(curse this resort's architect, both thought) the duo arrived at the entrance to Latias Stadium. It looked even more grand than the filer, as Graff found out when he held it up for comparison. There were arches and fountains everywhere, and to top it off, a large statue of the Eon Pokemon the very stadium was named in honor of. Brang got his breath back and spoke.
"So, this is the stadium. Time to find out if you can put your money where your mouth is, Graff."
"Oh hush." Graff replied, snapping out of the trance. "Fancy stadium or no, I can still take these glorified pets on. Let's go." The two entered the stadium, ready to take on their first challenge.

"When is our match?" Spirit asked. This, despite how good a fighter he was, his first tournament. "Too soon. We've got the ether and the potion. I'm nervous. Who or what is our foe? I've heard of these creatures, that aren't pokemon. Where going to go against one eventually, aren't we. Let's just wait by the stadium...maybe....we'll defeat who is going to challlange us..." Spark replied nervously. "Hold on, I'll be right back" Spirit told Spark. "W-where are you going!?!" "Just to snag the sign up sheet. We can see who's in this tournament!" Spirit answered happily. "No! That's stealing Spirit, you're way to old for me to tell you this!" Spark shouted. "But stealing's fun! Its even more fun to get away with it!" Spirit walked around Spark in a circle. "No!" Spark shouted again. He dragged Spirit to the stadium. The two where not completely ready, but enough. They went to a locker room titled pokemon fighters and sat down on some benches, thinking of their next move. They could only hope they wouldn't be challanged next, they could only hope it wouldn't be against non pokemon fighters. The two decided just to relax until the fight happened

As the sun was setting over Latias stadium, the resort beach had been completely emptied.
Only a shadow of a Scizor stood there, as quiet as if it had been a statue. He heard a noise,
coming from behind him. It was only his partner, Luke, coming
to remind him that it was only a matter of time before the resort gates would close.
Most people think the sunset is beautiful. Beetle was not one of them. It reminded him
of his least favorite thing.
As Graff and Brang wander around the Stadium and it's surroundings, admiring the finery and stands, Brang suddendly wonders what they were looking for.
"Graff, aren't we supposed to find our lockers or something?"
"Lockers? We probably have our own rooms considering how fancy this place is." Graff responds to the Boomerang Bro. the two had not kept track of how long they had been wondering the halls of the Stadium, something caught Graff's attention. He stooped Brang.
"Take at look at that." Graff had pointed to a bronze plated sign on a door that read, "Lockers - Non Pokemon fighters".
"Just great. 'Non-Pokemon fighters'. It's like they don't want us here."
"Graff, need I remind you that Koopas aren't the only one's from the Mushroom Kingdom?"
"it would be like that if Bowser had his way."
"I thought you quit being a part of the Koopa Troop?"
"I did. When someone who can't speak properly takes over your base, it's time to quit."
"Let's just get used to the lockers." The Boomerang Bro. answered in frustration.
"Whatever you say."
The two entered their surroundings, still in awe at the furnishings. Everything, the benches, the beds(?) the showers, looked like they belonged in a throne room, not a stadium looker room.
"And you said they didn't want us here." Brang said, in an "I told you so" tone.
"Whatever. Let's just get our first match underway. I'm itching for a fight." The duo walked to the terminal, a high tech looking touchscreen displaying the "Non-Pokemon fighters" which at the moment consisted of only Graff and Brang. Time to see if I can bit as loud as I bark, Graff figured as he selected the list of Pokemon Fighters. there were two teams displayed, the first one having an Eevee, a brown fox-cat looking creature, an Absol, a feline-lookalike. The other team consisted of a Scizor, which highly resembled an overgrown Fighter Fly in Graff's impression, and a Lucario, which looked like a Jackal on two legs with a spike on it's chest. The second team looked too tough(Graff knew when to back off of a fight), so he selected the first team, the Eevee and Absol. The machine announced in a dull voice that the selected team was informed of the challenge, and then it shut off, waiting for the next user. Graff and Brang decided to mill around, waiting for the match.
OOC: Graff and Brang have challenged Spirit and Spark
"S-Spirit" Spark sounded scared and nervous. "What is it?" Spirit asked. "D-didn't you hear that? Where going against a non-pokemon team!" Spark was more then scared. "So what? You acting like a cry baby. This is going to be cool, we'll show those non-pokemon fighters that where just as tough as them!" Spark looked down at Spirit. From there first battle Spirit had trained long and hard, and was stronger. Spark wondered in Spirit could beat him. There was plenty of determination in his voice. Spark realized he had to be brave, and strong. Spark knew Spirit was a caring person, but he had something against Spark. If Spark could just get past that layer of toughness, Spirit would be revealed of who he truly is, not who is dumb insane father made him. "Okay Spirit, let's get to the stadium" Spark sighed. "Look at them!" Spirit pointed to two odd creatures. One was a squirtle standing on its two legs, but it was wearing a black helmet and the belly of is shell was just lined, not like squirtles checkerboard. Its back as black and it was wearing shoes. It appeared to be thinner then a squirtle and was was holding a hammer. The other one was the same but its skin was green. "Those are who where going up against, without a doubt!" Spark declared. He was ready for a fight, and ready for whatever the two where going to throw at him. Spirit was the same. "Are you ready?" Spirit asked. "Yep!" "Well so am I!"

Graff and Brang walk to the main part of the stadium, a huge battling field in a small depression. Two high balcony like towers are on each end, presumably for Pokemon trainers to see the battle. All the duo could see was the field and the stands, which were holding a huge amount of people and Pokemon(Brang could even spot accommodations for Gyarados and other Pokemon who couldn't fit in normal seats, all of which were filled). None were the familiar Mushroom Kingdom types though. Graff on the other hand spotted their opponents, the Eevee and Absol that the duo saw earlier on the terminal. An announcer boomed over the PA system:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, and Pokemon of all shapes and sizes, welcome to the first match of this years Special League! The best fighter from near and far have come to Latias Stadium to see who is truly among the best! Even Regional Champions have seen the skill of ability of the Pokemon present, and this year, some fighters aren't even Pokemon! Living proof of this stands right before your eyes! Introducing, from the far away Mushroom Kingdom, Graff and Brang!" The crowd clapped in applause at the duo's mention. "And their opponents, Spirit the Eevee and Spark the Absol!" The Eevee and Absol in the audience went wild with cheers from the Eevee and hoots and howls from the Absol. The crowd grew quiet, and Graff and Brang(and thier opponents) froze in fighting position, ready for the bell to ring. After what seemed like an eternity, it rung, and the fight began.
As the first match was to begin, Luke looked down at the
two teams down on the field. One was a team they had seen
before: A classic Pokemon team. A Eevee and a Absol. Those
were a pair of fighters that can hold their own. Luke knew
this, as he had once helped a Absol, way too similar to the
one on the field. The other two, however, looked like owergrown
Squirtles in Luke's eyes. He thought they looked quite tough,
but not unbeatable. Then came his friend, Beetle.
"I got those Potions and that Ether you asked me to get."
Beetle said, "We still got 12 coins. Have the game started?"
Luke was about to answer the question, as the bell ringed,
and the fighters charged at each other. Beetle sat down,
eager to see the first game.
Spirit and Spark looked at eachother with determination in their eyes. They knew the drill, being first would help them with their beginning combo. "Yawn!" Spirit called out releasing a thin misty white gas from his mouth in the direction of Graff, the slightly tougher looking one. Spark, knowing he was up shouted "Tail whip!" started wagging his tail in the direction of Brang who looked a tiny bit weaker, but the two, of course, just determened who was stronger from there weapons. The tail was barely hitting him. It was too easy to preform their sleep/defence combo. The combo was ment to make the battle more possible, easier. It helped even more with the two being first in battling. If their guess was correct, this would most likely be a sure win. It would be hard to do it without a stragty, correct? Despite how much the two hated eachother, they agreed to completely work together in battle, without argument, or else they would surely lose. Now if only they would be correct, it'd be too easy! "Let's just pray....please..." Spark whispered "that we'll win against this new foe..."

Brang took a glance at Graff, when the mist cleared. he was fast asleep. Great. After all that bragging and he was fast asleep already. That's just great. Not only that, his shell got softer too. This was going to an uphill battle, without a doubt. "I have to do everything myself" Brang thought to himself. There was only one thing he could do. Brang lifted his trusty Boomerang, squinted his eye, and took careful aim. He let go, and the Boomerang flew threw the air with a "SWOOSH!" as it collided with the Eevee and Absol. It swung about for another go, and after that it returned to it's owner.
Jack walks in with the aqua ball to his side.
"Wow. This is- Big, Fear you've GOT to see this!"
He throws the auqa ball and his Gryados flys out with a roar
"See, Girl. Like it?"
Fear nods in agreement, then pokes his head to the other three pokéballs
"Get them out too? Its ganna be a sqeaze!"
Jack Laughs and throws his other threee pokéballs
"Dusssssssssssskinooiiiiiiiiir!" OldMansGhost Jacks Dusknoir flys out
"METAAAA" His Metagross snuggles up to him,pushing him over by accident"
"Gara." As Jack pushed him self back up again garachomp proudly stood, giving what seemed to Jack a cocky smirk.
"Okay guys. While you train for this I'm ganna pick the other two pokémon. We've risked our lives getting here... And lost... Frlgatr on the way. But its okay! We've come to win!And were ganna win!"
Is that Okay? I've sorta made it like a book, just a bit umm. Clearer.
( Sorry I missed a paragraph about descriping my char, I'm not a spammer so dont worry :-] )
Jack Trudges along to Arenas Pokécentré, trying to hold back the tears. He missed his Frlgtr. His shining teeth, aways dedeated to nything he did. And now, thanks to "Team Plasma" Frlgtr was now in the Ishuu reigion. After he wins the league hes going to Ishuu to look for it straight away. A tiny tear slides down his cheek as he rubs his deep Blue eyes. Throwing the tears away he runs in to the pokécentre but soon slips and lands on his knees, he looks at his stripey Black and red shorts and wipes them down, climbs up on to the chair infront of him and turns on the PC.
"Jack! So good to see see you! It must ofbeen hard making uyour way from sinnoh to the League huh?" His first profeser, profeser Elm smiles.
"PROFESER!" He burst in to tears " THIS "Team Plasma" STOLE FRLGTR! AND ITS IN THE ISHUU REIGON NOW!"
"Now, Now Jack. Profeser Oak will be sure to help. He Knows Ash.."
"Thanks, Elm! And Profeser. I want som Pokémon for the leauge"
Brushing his blond fringe, he realised how much he liked his hair. he would have HATED a diffrent hair.Smiling he took his red and black thin jacket off and put it under his legs, where he was sat all there was now was his black a white shirt with a picture f a pokéball on it.
What pokemon will Jack use?
Willl Frlgtr return?
You'll have to find out when i can be bothered to write next

"Oh...oh gosh....this isn't good!" Spark said, freaking out. Spirit drank up the potion, ignoring Spark's HP. "Strength!" Spark rammed into Brang with out mercy. He shot a worried glance at Spirit. They where a tough team...but not strong enough for these different opponents. Strength wouldn't do much....but it was still worth a shot. Spirit could already tell they would lose. "No mercy...." Whispered Spirit waiting for Brang's move. Spark couldn't exactly tell in Spirit was more on the side that they would lose or they would win. Spark thought for sure they would lose, but on the other hand, if they both thought that, they would, wouldn't they? "(This isn't going to be good, it all depends on what we can do and what that Brang guy can do. I faced near faint experiences...but never a challange this nerve wrecking....and against a none pokemon foe, no less!)" Spark and Spirit prepared for pain...and lots of it, but they weren't sure how they could now do, depending on how much that had hurt them. Spark even had his eyes watering. If Spirit fainted then they would lose...no doubt. So what if they lost? They would remain in the tournament, sure, but how could they do well against any other opponents they would face...non pokemon opponents. For the two it was too much to handle at the moment, the excitment, the fear, and anger....oh...could they pull through?

"C'mon Shyle!" Donkey Jr. Shouts
"I.. I.. Dunno about this Jr" Shyle frowns
"Please. Shyle, This is my ony chance! Dad wants me back about this new country, Donkey Kong country he calls it." Donkey Jr. Pleaded
"Okay! Lets win this!" Shyle raced ahead
Donkey Jr was shocked about Shyles sudden mood swing but smiled and chased after him all the same. After Being pushed passed a Boomarang bro and a Hammer bro, and being Insulted with "Beat it, Kid!" Donkey Jr and Shyle were soon look at sign what read "Pokécentre"
"Oh, I know al about theese. Wanna see the Pokemon? The get healed here" Monkey Jr Bragged
"I was in Hoenn with you, you know!" Shyle Laughed
"Oh- Yeah. You Really need to get noticed more!" Monkey Jr. Smiled
"Only if you get your self a nick-name! Monkey Jr is much too long" Shyle Protested
"Alright. If you promise not to have all those- Confidence problems. I have my self a nickname" M
Donkey Jr smiled
"Deal" Shyle Smiled
"My new nickname is... Brian"
"Brian?" Shyle Chuckled
"I Just want a normal name Like a normal person! I Dont wanna have anything too do with donkey kong! Gosh" Brian Fumed
"I'm Sorry..." Shyle frowned
"Its Fine! That was wierd. Heh heh. It was like a crazy anger.. Awsome, Maybe I could use that while were battling?"
"Right!" Shyle nooded.
"And were ganna win! Right?" Brian Smiled
(OOC: My bad. Thought Boomerang Throw was a fighting move when it was just a Normal type move. Brang takes 2 extra damage from that tail whip.)
Brang was sweating with pressure. His strike had done less damage than expected, and it was just a matter of time before they would strike again. Geez, This is really tough. Why did he sign up for this? Graff should have taken Nomes instead. He'd use the money. Brang put up those thoughts aside and focused on the battle. He threw his Boomerang again at his opponents. Then it hit him in the face. Brang face palmed. He didn't think he could fail so badly.
"Rock Smash!" Spirit called out. He hit Graff with the fighting move, praying to do nice damage. "Strength!" Spark said again. Again, he had used it on Brang, praying for nce damage. The two realized they might have a nice shot after all...but it all depends on what Graff could do. If Graff was stronger then the two expected, then there wouldn't be a chance of winning. "(We might have a chance of winning! If we do....then it'll show those non pokemon fighting that where both equal in strength! Now...if only Spirit doesn't think of his father, we have this in the bag...oh Spirit, I can't help but feel sorry for you. By several you've been considered Death's assistent due to how many lives where lost because of you. Now you can show then world you've changed....you're not who you're father and his assistents made you. You're fathers Death's assistent...not you. If only you could hear me.....)" Spark cringed at the thought of Spirit's past, but shook those thoughts away. Spirit's life is full of emotion, it hurts to even think that this had happended to Spirit. Now that's over though...and Spark realizes that he and Spirit need to forget the past. This, right now, the present, is what really counts. "You ready Spirit? Let's see what they can do!" Spark called out.
(where is everyone?)
