    In the world of Ransei, it has been ten years since a young girl took on the notorious warlord Nobunaga, united what was then seventeen kingdoms, and brought peace to the region.

    Since then, an eighteenth kingdom was discovered--the Fairy-type kingdom of Hikari. While many welcomed the people of Hikari with open arms, a new prophecy of hope soon emerged from the kingdom--"On the day the hero and the guardian howl together with a red flute, the song will usher forth a rainbow, and a world of light."

    Many scholars and sages studied this new prophecy. It was understood that "the hero and the guardian" referred to the twin wolf kings that were prominent in the lore of the Hikari region--Zacian, the Hero's Sword; and Zamazenta; the Guardian Shield. The question was, what was the red flute referring to? Was it a literal instrument, or someone playing such an instrument?

    The answer was a master yumidou named Ash who also channeled ki through a special red flute carved from a single ruby. He made his keep as a mercenary, alongside three of his closest best friends.

    One night, Zacian appeared to Ash in a dream, and warned him that a shadowy dragon Pokémon named Eternatus threatened to revive Nobunaga, and destroy Ransei. The only way to stop this from occurring was to gather ten enchanted jewels hidden in well guarded temples, then use the song in his heart and the jewels' power to awaken Arceus again.

    Ash talked the matter over with his companions--the icy swordswoman Misty, the kaitan Brock, and the odoriko Serena, and they all agreed to seek other heroes to go with them on the long and perilous journey to help the prophecy come true...

    Excuse me, I'd like to ask something before applying here: is a character allowed to have more than one Pokémon partner? Or does it have to be only one?

    You can have up to a full team of six. You do have to explain how your character got a Legendary if a Legendary is on that team.

    Okay~
    Might as well join here for a spin~
    Name: Natsu Oyama
    Age: 16 y.o.
    Appearance: (not shown: sarashi/bandage on his chest under all of his clothings, bow and arrows on his travelling/hunting outfit)
    bgbg_20200415_174826.png
    bgbg_20200415_210017.png
    Personality: An adventurous yet gentle boy who can be serious when the situation calls for it. Not a big fan of close combat unless it's for self-defense. Usually refers to his Pokémon partners by their Japanese names.
    History: Natsu and Fumiko are actually weird cases for someone born and raised at Pugilis; in Natsu's case, he can sense and utilize aura but quite mediocre at unarmed fighting. He started travelling around Ransei at 10 y.o. (3 years with Fumiko, 3 years on his own), eventually finding out that he's surprisingly good at projectile attack which later led him to be an archer.
    Class: Yumidou (though might be mistaken as a monk due to his everyday attire)
    Pokémon:
    • Lucario (male, uh, Lucario)
    • Junaiper (male Decidueye)
    • Mafoxy (female Delphox)
    • Emonga (female Emolga)
    • Sazandra (male Hydreigon)
    • Marilli (female Azumarill)
    Pokémon paths: Lucario and Decidueye
    Weapon: Bow and arrows for main weapon, bare hands for close range self-defense, sometimes mixed with aura in both cases

    More info on this boy: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ou_crv2EtG5Rl1UEoF_FUi6P6PvtJmSRM65qED6dhgw/edit?usp=sharing (in "Natsu's Bio" and "Pokémon (Natsu)" tabs)

    Welp, seems like I forgot about this:
    Is it possible to mish-mash combine two or more Pokémon paths? Or does it have to be only one? I've been thinking about combining two paths in my character but still not sure about it.

    It is possible to combine multiple Pokémon paths, but one should be your main. If it would help, I can post a list of the known paths, and what that path's arts are like.

    Okay--the main five Pokémon paths are:

    Raikou--Pure offense; thunder based moves (but does have other elementals)
    Suicune--Balanced offense; exclusively water and ice based moves
    Gyarados--Agility based offense; water based moves (but does have other elementals)
    Scyther--Stealth based offense
    Swanna--Protection based defense; but has some offensive moves

    Variants of these five will often include Arbok (poison based stealth offense) and/or Infernape (agility based offense; fire based moves)

    Other known styles include:

    Pangoro--Balanced wall based offense
    Urshifu--Elemental offense; there are eighteen known variants, one for each Pokémon type, and variants of those variants
    Emboar--Pure power offense; fire based moves
    Tauros--Pure power
    Centiskorch--Fire based stealth offense
    Combusken--Agile power offense; fire based moves
    Clawncher--Holding offense; water based moves
    Honchkrow--Aerial stealth offense
    Sawsbuck--Speedy offense
    Arcanine--Agile speed offense; fire based moves
    Braviary style--Aerial offense
    Donphan--Power ambush
    Delphox--magic based power offense; fire based moves
    Greninja--Agile power offense; water based moves
    Pidgeot--Aerial speedy offense
    Ponyta--Agile speedy offense; fire based moves
    Entei--True balanced style; fire based moves
    Charmander--agile speedy offense; fire based moves
    Drapion--poison based ambish offense
    Swellow--pure aerial offense
    Toxicroak--pure poison based stealth
    Wartortle--water based defense (with some offensive moves)
    Mightyena--Dark based stealth offense

    By no means exhaustive or complete!

    Aight then. Already edited my chara sheet. Hopefully Lucario-Decidueye mix won't be too OP for Pokémon paths.

    Just remember that on all paths, you start with basic skills, and learn more powerful ones as the journey continues.

    One more question before I start: do Pokeballs exist in this particular RP-verse?

    Not in the form we all know--they exist in the form of magical items called Heart Charms--which resemble heart shaped jewels (the heart's color depends on the primary type of the Pokémon inside)

    The colors are basically like this, right?

    That's about right--if a Pokémon has multiple types, the Heart Jewel will be the color of their primary type, with influences from the secondary type

    Question again: are we limited to one OC per user? Or can a user add more if they so desire?

    It is easier if you focus on one character at a time. But if you can make multiple characters work, go for it!
