    The basic premise:

    The latest turmoil in the ancient Pokémon world isn't an evil sect or a warlord--it's a Hisuian Zoroark with an eye on throwing the martial world in disarray. After sneaking into heaven and stealing many of the Jade Empress' dragon pearls, the Hisuian Zoroark, called White Ghost, tripped on a rock, sending the pearls flying all across the martial world!

    On top of White Ghost trying to find the lost dragon pearls, many evil sects and corrupt warlords are trying to find these sacred jewels in hopes of abusing their sacred magic to their own selfish ends. Many bands of heroes and righteous and neutral sects are also in the process of tracking down White Ghost, as well.

    You play one of the heroes tracking down White Ghost and the dragon pearls--will you succeed in catching this rogue Hisuian Zoroark, returning the dragon pearls, and restoring peace to the martial world?

    Sign up here with the following info:

    Character's name: (try to pick something that at least sounds Chinese or Japanese)
    Character's age: (anywhere from age 14 to 19 will do)
    Character's physical appearance (what does your character basically look like?)
    Character's personality/known history (what is your character like, and what spurred your character to join the hunt for White Ghost and the dragon pearls?)
    Character's known Pokémon, if any (any known non-Legendary Pokémon are allowed--if you do want a Legendary, be prepared to explain how you got it)
    Character's preferred style: (what does your character use to fight? If they fight unarmed, just put "fist", "palm", or "knuckle")
    Character's school/sect: (Is your character part of a school or sect? If they are not, you can list them as "wandering warriors")

    Wheel
    Shield

    Instruments you may use

    Commencing OC reboot...
    Nagisa Kokuo
    Name: Nagisa Kokuo
    Age: 15
    School/Sect: Smeargle Colours, a painters' community
    Appearance Basic appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Outfit: Basically similar to Rei's outfit in Legends: Arceus (sans the hat and scarf) but with ink splatters all over it

    Backstory Nagisa is a mute boy (though you'll be forgiven for thinking he's deaf too) who relies on his painting skills for both combat and making a living. He usually "speaks" with gestures and sign language. Failing that, he writes his speeches down on the ancient-magical version of Magna Doodle (basically a magically erasable board) :
    upload_2021-10-25_19-21-6.png

    Despite technically being a member of the Smeargle Colours, Nagisa is currently wandering around because he has clients all over the martial world -- one of which had told him about the White Ghost when they hired him to draw it for a wanted poster. The client only told him that it was responsible for stealing the dragon pearls, though.

    Known Pokémon: Emina the female Smeargle
    Preferred styles:
    • Paintbrush
    • Dagger
    • Black: non-elemental / spirit (since Nagisa can't use shadow powers)
    • Dark green: earth
    • Light green: nature
    • Red: fire
    • Floral lavender: wind (any paler and it would be invisible on white canvas)
    • Blue: water
    • Cyan: ice
    • Yellow: thunder
    • Purple: cosmos
    • Rose pink: light (because the original ki color is practically invisible on white canvas)
    • ...and many more for casual painting
    Money: 10,000 sen
    • Paintbrush
    • Some empty scrolls as "combat canvas"
    • Bottles of colorful ink
    • Basic dagger
    None at the moment
    None at the moment
    None at the moment
    • Proper canvas for casual painting
    • Erasable board
    • Quill
    • Journal

    As for my second OC, I still have to rethink about her backstory. Sorry in advance.

    That looks good so far!

    Don't worry, the Sensational Six (the ancient counterparts of Ash and the gang) are also among the many tracking White Ghost. If you're stuck, and you find them, they will help you.

    Tbh, the premise was so random that rethinking this girl's backstory became harder than I first thought. :sweat:
    Fumiko Oyama
    Name: Fumiko Oyama
    Age: 18
    School/Sect: Blue Moon Guild (formerly Mitama School of Magic)
    Appearance Basic appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Outfit: A yellow sleeveless fighter outfit under her dark blue, long sleeved starry robe

    Backstory Fumiko is a mage from Blue Moon Guild who can sense and utilize aura to some extent. Her magical prowess made her quite a weird case for someone born and raised in the home of brawlers. She graduated from Mitama School at the tender age of 17 and was recruited soon afterwards.

    One year later, rumors about the White Ghost who stole Jade Empress' dragon pearls made its way to Blue Moon Guild. The guildmaster had assigned her to track the Hisuian Zoroark down and try to return the dragon pearls to the Jade Empress while she's at it. Little did the guildmaster know that Fumiko got a help from an anonymous tipper via random Fletchling mails. She didn't know that it was her brother, Natsu, who tipped her, though.

    Known Pokémon:
    • Luchabull "Lucha" the male Hawlucha
    • Junaiper "Jun" the male Decidueye -- Natsu's former archery mentor
    Preferred styles:
    • Cosmic / purple ki
    • Aura sensing and utility
    • Unarmed (she's surprisingly agile for a mage)
    With ki
    • Speed Star: Homing star-shaped rays are shot at opponents like how Fumiko would throw shurikens. Like the Pokémon version of Swift, this attack never misses.
    • Cosmic Power: Fumiko enchants a weapon with the power of cosmos. This spell also boosts the wielder's defense while she's at it. (Its Pokémon version only does the defense boost btw.)
    • Star Blazing: Large, star-shaped projectiles rain down from the sky in rapid succession, each one detonating into expanding rings of smaller projectiles just when they're about to reach the foes.
    • Galacta Blazing: A stronger version of Star Blazing that adds one final, larger star that detonates at the foe with most HP at the moment with a much denser ring of smaller stars on top of it.
    • Morning Sun / Moonlight: Fumiko heals an ally and/or herself for 1/2 of target's max HP. The usable spell depends on time of the day: Morning Sun in daytime and Moonlight in nighttime.
    • Moonblast: Borrowing the power of the moon, Fumiko attacks the target. This spell's power doubles at night.
    • Sinister Arrow Raid: Fumiko casts a special spell to upgrade Junaiper's Spirit Shackle. This spell is based on Decidueye's special Z-move of the same name and only usable once per battle.

    Without ki
    • Aura Sphere: Fumiko lets loose a blast of aura power from deep within her body at the target. This attack never misses.
    • Aura Barrier: Fumiko conjures a barrier made from aura that acts like Protect.
    • Agility: Fumiko relaxes and lightens her body to move faster. This greatly raises her speed.

    Money: 10,000 sen
    • Starry Robe
    None at the moment
    None at the moment
    None at the moment
    • Non-combat dagger
    • Colored ribbons

    That looks good so far!

    You start with 10,000 sen to spend on supplies and services--a stipend from the guild.

    Aight, added the starting money. ;)

    If this is like any other RPs of yours, the ki colors would be like this, right?
    • Silver (spirit)
    • Green (earth)
    • Light green (nature)
    • Red (fire)
    • Lavender (wind)
    • Blue (water)
    • Cyan (ice)
    • Yellow (thunder)
    • Purple (cosmos)
    • White (light)
    • Black (shadow)
    • Rainbow (all the elements)
    Edit: Added Agility to Fumiko's spell list.

    Uh...

    Are we waiting for more people to join? Or should we go 1x1 with potential late sign-ups available?

    If you want to go 1x1, we can, but leave the door open to making it a group RP.

    I suppose I can re-use Makoto, Kotone, and Belle. That okay? I'll get their profiles later.

    Name: Makoto Yuki
    Age: 16
    Appearance: light build with pale complexion; with unkept dark blue hair that covers his right eye, and pale blue eyes
    Personality/known history: Makoto tends to be calm, reserved, and of few words. Needless to say he doesn't care for anything; friends, Pokémon, or companionship in general. He is a diligent student, despite sleeping in class half the time, and neither will he hesitate to help others despite his personality. When the job posting reached his school that the White Ghost needed to be tracked, he took up the offer.
    Known Pokémon: none
    Preferred style: sword
    School/sect: Gekkou School
    Name: Kotone Shiomi
    Age: 16
    Appearance: light build with pale skin; with auburn hair tied up in a high ponytail and red eyes
    Personality/known history: Practically Makoto's opposite, Kotone is bubbly, social, and cheerful. Whereas Makoto is keen to stay quiet, Kotone would be speaking up and isn't afraid to. She cares about everyone around her, even possessing empathy for her friends and enemies (though she knows the line if there is one). Plus, she loves poking fun at anyone and everyone when she has a chance. And she likes following Makoto wherever he goes, and she even pushed him into taking the job.
    Known Pokémon: Belle (Bellossom)
    Preferred style: pole
    School/sect: Gekkou School
    Money: 10000 sen
    Equipped: None
    Items: Medicine x8
    Money: 10000 sen
    Equipped: None
    Items: Camping gear (tent, blankets, firestarters, cooking pot)

    I was about to say "Sure, let's start" when 122 replied, so might as well make this a group RP right off the bat.
    By all means, go ahead. Just keep in mind that I'm not reusing Hideki and Kaede here. ;)

    I do hope Makoto and/or Kotone can understand sign tho.

    That fine. Kotone will probably find more ways to unleash mayhem. That said, I’ll need a few hours before I can get their profiles back. I’m not home yet.

    Aight then. Take your time~

    And to Kotone: good luck with teasing Nagisa. He'll instinctively sign when he's enraged, so unless you and/or someone else can understand sign (like Fumiko who took it as an elective back at school), you won't understand what he's even talking about. >:)

    So far we have:
    • Nagisa: magic painter (roughly like a red mage but with paintbrush)
    • Fumiko: battlemage
    • Makoto: swordsman
    • Kotone: pole wielder (?)
    And one reminder for @122 Generation:

    (also keep an eye out for the Six Spirits--they can help you, guide you somewhere, and protect you from evil.)
