    Summer Scramble was a whole ton of fun, and I'd honestly love to continue the pirate theme we had going, cuz let's face it, who doesn't love a good pirate adventure?

    @HeroofFire101 and I were discussing this in the Discord so I'm just gonna get my thoughts down here! This is all very groundworking atm, but I'm thinking of starting something for a Goonies/Pirates of the Caribbean Pokémon story, where you can make a Pokémon character join a crew and set sail on all sorts of adventures!

    First, time to brainstorm some characters! I already have a few in mind that will serve as backstory characters/characters to help advance the plot!

    In lieu of the Summer Scramble, I have two (maybe three) crews atm that people can sign up for (may add more as time goes on)

    Azure Crew: A band of scrappy closeknit underdogs, united under the common goal of [insert big pirate goal here. Treasure? Freedom to sail? TREASURE?!] They're new to the pirate business but have big hearts and a never-say-die attitude.

    1. Oscar and Olive Oshawott (@OzoneFruit) Good at: Swordsplay, Infiltration. Bad at: Reading (Oscar), Spending/Bartering (Olive)
    2. Joshua Smith the Servine (@Smarty_Pants001) Good at: Knives, Pickpocketing. Bad at:
    3. Shadow the Riolu (@Laserdragon14) Good at: Hand-to-hand combat, Detection. Bad at: Knot-tying.
    4. Marcus the Machamp (@BZRich64) Good at: Brawler, Navigation. Bad at: Speed.
    5. Anna Hayden the Charmeleon (@HeroofFire101) Good at: Swordsplay, Musician. Bad at: Navigating (Like, REALLY bad)
    6. "Grimwing" the Gabite (@Shockwave) Good at: Berserker, Medic. Bad at: Holding things.
    7. Umbra the Zorua (@Merdrabolt) Good at: Bat at: Cooking. Umbra also has poor eyesight.

    Crimson Company: This crew is also new to the pirate scene, but set sail a few months before Azure, so they have more experience up their sleeves. They strike up a rivalry with Azure after some shenanigans (how extensive this rivalry gets is up to discussion, but I'm leaning towards mostly friendly overall ;) ).

    1. Aurora the Pidgeotto (@Fchicken77) Good at: Navigaton, Mathmetician. Bad at: Close combat.
    2. Bigjaw the Croconaw (@Arod) Good at: Brawler, hunter and gatherer. Bad at: Long-range aim
    3. Samson Berg the Alolan Sandshrew (@Ridlins) Good at: Axe combat, Storytelling. Bad at: Stealth
    4. Piper the Fletchling (@ChocoChicken) Good at: Music. Bad at: Close Combat.
    5. Rhys the Chinchou (@TripleAAABattery) Good at: Medic. Bad at: Rhys is butterfingered (finned?)
    6. Gwooms the Goomy (@Gwoomy) Good at: Infiltration, Hiding small items. Bat at: Anything involving hands :P

    Valor Navy: Where there are lawless pirates roaming the seas, there must also be a law force in hot pursuit. The Valor Navy isn't the bad guy per se, but they will most often serve as a foil to a pirate's quest for treasure and hijacking, and as such, when pirates and Navy meet, the FIGHT IS ON.

    1. "Charles" the Ditto (@Haunted Ditto) Good at: Infiltration, Espionage. Bad at: Swimming.
    2. Ace the Pawniard (@Captain Comet) Good at: Swordsplay, Locksmith/lockpicking. Bad at: Swimming

    Onto Character intros!

    Wailord Mascot SMALLER.png Willy the Wailord: Willy is a hearty, cheerful veteran who acts as a guide and unofficial captain to the Azure Crew (And sometimes to the other crews as well; Willy is nice :3)! He's the biggest crew member by far; he can't even fit on the ship, so he just trails alongside the boat usually XD

    Annnnnnd... that's it so far XD I do have some other ideas for crew members, but I don't wanna throw too many ideas out at once! I'll leave a few here (in case anyone is interested in playing as/expanding on them!)

    Donnie and Donna the Dhelmise: Donnie and Donna are quite literally the anchors of the Azure Crew and Crimson Company respectively. Donnie is normal-colored, and Donna is Shiny.

    Percy the Pelipper: A navigator for the Azure Crew, probably a bit of an idiot.

    Valentin the Roselia: Totally not Vigilance. A flamboyant yet deceptively cunning member of the Navy (Probably French Kalosian as well). His battle strategies will get both Azure and Crimson in trouble more than once.

    Benson the Magikarp: Totally not Achro. An old, slightly senile, guru-like Magikarp who has a habit of popping out of nowhere to give some cryptic message before splashing off again. What a weirdo.

    If you're interested in maybe signing up, here's a character template you can use! (If you have any suggestions for it, feel free to leave your thought as well!)

    Character Name:

    Approximate age: (Or, seeing as we'll be playing Pokémon, at least how old they act)

    Good Skill(s): (Max two, can gain more as the RP goes on) Examples of skills include navigating, swordsmanship, pickpocketing, musical talent, etc. Remember, since we're all Pokémon, be sure your skills can match the Pokémon you're playing as! For example, if you wanted to be a sniper/marksman, you could be an Octillery, or if you wanted to be a swordsman, you could be a Scyther/Pawniard! Try not to get too outlandish (although I will admit, the idea of a Dunsparce fighting with a sword in its mouth is amusing :P)

    Poor Skills(s): At least one. Your character can't be good at everything, so think of something they might not be the best at! For example, they could be a bad cook, or maybe they're not very stealthy!

    Character traits: Basic personality stuff here
    - Positive traits: Try and come up with at least two
    - Negative traits: Again, try and come up with at least two, no character is perfect after all!

    Backstory: Keep it brief for now, we can expand as time goes on! ;) Nothing too grimdark please! I'm leaning towards this RP being mostly upbeat *_*

    SIGN UPS FOR THE FIRST ROUND WILL BE OPEN UNTIL MONDAY AUGUST 13, 11:59 PM PST

    Is it okay for me to join? I know I’m a filfthy casual and a Team Crimson member but this sounds fun!

    Alright. This is the 2nd RP I want to be a part of, so it'll be interesting for me.
    Pokémon Species: Servine
    Name: Joshua Smith
    Approximate Age: In human terms, about 19, but he acts more mature than his age.
    Good skills: Mischief (so pick-pocketing and stuff) and Bladesmanship, but due to his shorter arms and being unable to control longer weapons effectively with vines, he prefers knives to swords.
    Bad skills: Is terrible at large group work and prefers to work alone. He can handle two or three other pokémon, but not really more than that.
    Positive traits: Quick to react, good at logically diffusing tense situations, and has a strong sense of morals.
    Negative traits: Extremely frank and very, very stubborn.
    Backstory: Born into a poor family with a struggling merchant father, Joshua turned to thievery at a young age, not for personal gain, but to help his family. Soon after he evolved into a Servine, his father was killed in a tragic accident, his mother following soon after. Left alone, the young grass snake turned to piracy to sustain himself.

    Here's my Pidgeot OC, she's from Crimson.

    Character Name: Aurora

    Approximate age: 17

    Skill(s): Navigating, as Pidgeys are born with a really sharp sense of direction. She can complete complex math equations.

    Poor Skills(s): She cripples in hand-to-hand combat due to her body type.

    Character traits:

    - Positive traits: Wise, mature, patient, logical, and strategic.
    - Negative traits: Cold, can be somewhat sadistic and manipulative.

    Backstory:

    Aurora grew up in a middle-class family of Pidgeots. She was studying to become a physicist before her parents got kidnapped by an unknown ship, and in order to get them back, Aurora has decided to join a pirate crew against her own wishes.

    Wait, should I see what Team Crimson thinks about making their own RP that’s connected to yours? This would be the point of view of Team a Crimson but both RP’s are intertwined in the same universe

    Lucarionite ★★★★Legendary Triforce ★★
    Character Name: Shadow

    Pokémon: Riolu

    Age: 20ish

    Skills: melee and can use Aura for detection

    Skills he can't do: Can't tie knots

    Positive traits: Critical thinker, obedient

    Negative traits: Quiet, thinks lowly of himself

    Backstory: --make it completely grim-- (Being serious now) Shadow was born into a family that was very religious and as he grew older, he started to not believe in what his family believes, so when they wanted him to become a religious leader, he left when he got the chance. (This is the best that I can come up with, atm. Brain, work harder!)

    Oh wow, I picked a Feraligatr (now a Croconaw by Ozone’s request) OC that’s gonna be on Team Crimson. WHO THE **** SAW THAT ONE COMING!!!!!!!

    Character Name: Bigjaw

    Age: 16

    Skill(s): Utilzing moves in different ways to throw off the opponent. For example, using Water Fall as quick mobility in land rather than just straight up attacking. He’s also a good hunter and forager.

    Character Traits:

    -Positives: Friendly, loyal, fun loving, protective, caring, intimidating, and has a strong and sturdy body that is capable of taking hits

    -Negatives: Has a Rambo Complex, can get carried away in battle, is terrible with melee Weapons, rushes in to save and take hits without thinking about how it will harm him, can be quite careless, and he has a temper. (He also has a weakness for sweets)

    Backstory: Abandoned just a day before he hatched, this Totodile would be brought into the harsh world. He’d have no one to count on, so he had to become very self reliant and learn a lot of the basics of existing on his own. He went nameless for awhile until naming himself Bigjaw (which if you ask me, is a not a creative and original name. The bonehead who came up with that probably is a simple minded ape..........). Bigjaw would then survive through battling for food, money, items, and even straight up hunting. He honed his battle skills, evolved, and decided to join Team Crimson as he would finally have a home and a ‘family’ that he would vow to protect at all costs. (Sorry if this is too long and boring but I’m bad at making short things....)

    I’d rather him have a scar across his eye, maybe he’s blind in one. But the most I’ll do is put a chain around his neck wtb Waterium Z. But if you need me to put some pirate thing on him then I’ll give him a blind eye with a scar or something

    @Fchicken77 @Arod Now that I think about it, both Crimson and Azure would still be new to the business, so I think the characters shouldn't be fully evolved yet. Would it be all right if Aurora was a Pidgeotto and Bigjaw was a Croconaw? That way there' more opportunity for character development and they can evolve when something big happens maybe :3

    Just so people know, I won't have an internet connection for the entirety of next week, as I'll be in the Adirondacks with my family.

    Here's my character entry.
    Character Name: Marcus "Mustache" the Machamp

    Approximate age: 43

    Good Skills: Incredible strength, good navigator

    Poor Skill: Physically slow

    Character traits:
    - Positive traits: Good natured, loyal
    - Negative traits: Not very smart, stubborn

    Backstory: Marcus served in the navy as a Machoke until the death of his best friend and comrade, Abraham the Alakazam. After that, he left and turned to a life of piracy, evolving into a Machamp in the process. Despite now being a pirate, he does his best not to bring harm to others whenever possible. He is also well known for his luxurious mustache, which, as much as he denies it, is actually fake.

    Sure, I’m fine with Bigjaw being a Croconaw but can I pick out my moveset for him?

    Character Names: Oscar and Olive Oshawott
    Approximate Ages: Around 10
    Good Skills: Hiding/crawling into tight spaces, above average swordplay.
    Poor Skills: Oscar is illiterate, and Olive is a poor at bargaining.
    - Oscar uses a larger two-handed scalchop.
    - Olive uses the standard scalchop, and can also use hers like a boomerang.

    Character Traits:
    - Oscar is rambunctious, confident, and completely in over his head. He often pretends to be the actual captain of the Azure Crew, though that hasn't been officially decided yet :P He wears a black-and-white striped bandanna, along with an eyepatch that serves no purpose apart from him thinking it looks cool. He acts tough, but is actually a bit of a crybaby and can't handle being hit.
    - Olive is more level-headed than her twin brother, and better at sneaking around and staying undercover. She wears a dark pink bandanna. Olive is more mature than her brother, but is a huge worrywart for his safety, as she knows Oscar rushes in without thinking. This often results in Oscar getting mad and hurting her feelings...

    Sounds good to me! Seeing as he's an elder figure, think he could act as kind of the mentor/dad to the rookie crew along with Willy?
