The Return: Memory Reversal
Today is the big day! You, a friend to Pokémon, have had the opportunity to attend to Hoenn Champ Battles! Only once every year, at Lilycove City, experienced trainers called the Elite Four preform for the audience by battling other skilled trainers. The Elite Four as well as Gym Leaders hold high places in the world of Pokémon and this event is highly acclaimed. You are a lucky soul to be able to attend the games and the battles were exciting down to the end. As the people are filing out nearing the last minutes of battle, you linger in order to be sure of the true victor. Dark clouds begin to gather, nothing but a storm. Although, the sky was clear just moments ago. As suddenly as the clouds had appeared, there was a loud crack and the sky opened up.
What came out was something unbelievable. Two incredibly rare Pokémon, Dialga and Palkia, emerged in the middle of an intense battle. Lightening tore across the sky and the people panicked. Some run around in terror while others look up in fear and you join in. Seeing Legendary Pokémon is not an everyday occurrence. As things are happening all around it, everything abruptly stops. Time stands still. People are frozen around you, Dialga and Palkia having seemingly stopped, and you yourself cannot move. Then, in a flash of bright, white light, you hear a voice; This battle will be completely erased from everyone’s minds, and it should have been from yours too. But, you extraordinary individuals are the only witnesses to this event. Something about you has made you resistant to the Memorial Blast and as a result, you will be forgotten as well. Seek out the Legendary Pokémon and others who are resistant and you will find answers.
1. All RPG rules apply. Minimal to zero godmodding, bunnying, being invincible, etc. Just do what’s right.
2. Three strikes you're out. I warn you twice, the next time you screw up you're done.
3. Please try and stay dedicated. This is a re-vamp of my first RPG. We had a small group of posters who stuck to the end and it was amazing. Let me know if you’ll be falling behind and I’ll try and do the same.
3.5. If you look back at the first Memory Reversal RP and spoil crap, I'll break you.
4. On that note, be appropriate. Use language appropriate to the situation, use interactions appropriate to the situation, and just don't fight with each other (outside of character of course). You got a problem, you bring it to me.
5. Have a fun time! Take it easy with a simple RPG with some cool people and use your imagination to the max. Happy posting!
~Pokémon battles are carried out where the trainer is an active part of battle. While in fair fights, trainers refrain from attacking each other, they will move around the field while commanding their Pokémon.
~Your character can be anything from an elderly, experience trainer to a totally green coordinator. As long as you stay within the wide age limit and are reasonable in number of badges and skill level for your character.
~Leave Legendary Pokémon out of your characters life unless loosely connected. Go crazy with the history section, but I might ask for changes that affect the plot later on.
~Make your first post begin before the Dialga Palkia battle and end with your characters reaction after the "Memorial Blast." Things like that will be explained as time goes on, promise.
I'll be taking anyone currently reserved until we've gotten too far in and I'll take a few people who still would like to join after a day or two here~

Marth Kane: Hoenn Champ Battles
It was a calm and pleasantly warm day in most of Hoenn, aside from the usually warm or cold climates. But at the Hoenn Champ Battles near Lilycove, things were heating up! (excuse the pun, I couldn’t help myself) A young girl sat at the edge of her seat, watching as exceptional trainers battled each other to win a shot at facing on of the Elite Four of Hoenn. So far, the event had been all Marth had hoped for; exciting, full of incredible battling techniques she never knew, and each trainer was honorable in battle. These trainers had worked hard alongside their Pokémon and made it clear that they deserved to be here today. Occasionally the commentator found a moment to tell a bit of a trainers experience and each person had a lot to be proud of. But the games would soon be over as the final battle between trainers ended and that between Elite Four and trainer would begin.
The Pokémon battles that happened next were perhaps the most impressive Marth had ever seen. Being a trainer herself, she could recognize styles and skills that trainers had and all these trainers were amazingly talented. The Hoenn Elite Four really had to work to keep the upper hand, but soon there was a victor for each match but one. The audience began to trickle out of the stands despite the intense battle below. Marth sat glued to her seat with still others who stayed to watch the final victor. A gust of wind caught Marth’s attention and she looked to the sky. Wow, it was really sunny and nice a second ago, she thought, Looks like a storm’s coming in. Not to be distracted from the battle, she turned back. As she did, a bolt of lightning flashed across the sky followed by a roar of thunder. The audience was startled and the battle stalled. After a second bolt of lightning streaked across the sky, this time a roaring, ripping sound filled the fields. What is going on!?
Most heads were turned to the sky when it happened. It looked like the sky began to split open. Two vicious looking rips spread apart rapidly in the sky to let something loose. A beast came out. This pink Pokemon resembled a dragon, but was larger than any Tyranitar Marth had ever seen. As it hurtled out of the portal in the sky, a blue, four-legged one followed it with a ferocious roar. The two of them began going at each other viciously and this instigated the panic in the crowds. People were running in every direction to get out and away from the deadly battle above them. Some stood stunned and staring, Marth being one of them. Nonetheless, no one was taking a moment to process the thing taking place in the sky.
Just as suddenly as that first bolt of lightning happened, the crowd was frozen in panic, literally. Marth herself couldn’t move, but she could see the movements in the sky had stopped as well. But before she could try and turn to see if the beastly Pokemon had frozen as well, everything went white. Yet another strange event happens as Marth hears a voice. ”This battle will be completely erased from everyone’s minds, and it should have been from yours too. But, you extraordinary individuals are the only witnesses to this event. Something about you has made you resistant to the Memorial Blast and as a result, you will be forgotten as well. Seek out the Legendary Pokémon and others who are resistant and you will find answers.”
The whiteness consumed her and in the span of a second, Marth was back. Sitting calmly in her seat, she was watching the end of the Hoenn Champ Battles, next to the odd couple she had been ignoring the whole time just like nothing had happened. She blinked a few times. She examined herself quickly, gave herself a pinch, and then finally accepted things were actually normal again. How the heck that happened, I’ll never know, but seriously, what was that? Turning to the girl sitting next to her, hugging her boyfriend’s arm tightly, Marth asked, “Did you see that crazy battle up there?”
“Wha- you mean the Champ Battles? Well of course! That’s why we’re here!” She answered cheerfully, gazing at her boy who looked ready to throw her off his arm. People started getting up as the final match had finished. Marth hadn’t seen who the winner was.
“No, no, that’s not what I meant. I mean there giant were dragon Pokémon fighting in the sky! Everyone was panicking! Didn’t you see that?”
“Ummm,” said the boy, “I don’t think you’re feeling too well. There was no dragon fight. I’d get yourself checked out…” he finished awkwardly as the two started walking away from the strange girl. In her mind, Marth was panicking. What in the world is going on!? Did- did it really happen? I mean, I saw it, I’m sure it happened. But why… Her head snapped up as the idea hit her and she hurried to the balcony railing. Grabbing hold with one hand, she pointed the other at the sky.
“DID ANYONE ELSE SEE THAT BATTLE!?” she shouted. Those still in the stadium turned to see who it was. Marth didn’t know what that would accomplish, but she could figure it out later. It did make her feel a bit better so no harm done. She exited the stadium in a bit of a fury and released Sear, her Growlithe partner.
“Am I going crazy Sear?” she asked the fire pup. The dog scoffed at her and shook her head, trotting beside her trainer’s slow walk.
“Well, that voice… it said to search others immune to, to the… Memorial Blast? I’ve never heard of anything like that before. Well, maybe someone else is out there and they heard me make a fool of myself.” Sear snickered and Marth shot her a glare. “If not, then we’ll have to track down some Legendary Pokémon then. What do you have to think about that then, eh Sear?” She glanced back, half hoping someone would stop to tell her that they had seen the battle as well.
