Flannery, you're in. Charly has also been accepted via PM. Queenofinsanity, you are also in, and since I tkae it that you want me to choose your character's school, it'll be the Strength Academy. And that's it! NO MORE NEW CHARACTERS! LET'S START!

"You can go and ask Nurse Joy for one." I told Larry, taking out mine. Proffesor Oak had given it to me, since my home-town was Pallet, and had constantly upgraded it, trying out new things. It was black, but there was a red streak on it, that resembled a flame. Chatot stared at it, and then squaked, "Pokerdeck!"

I jumped out of my seat, giving a yelp of suprise. Then realising what had happened, I blushed. "Oh yeah, I forgot that Chatot could mimic words."

"Oh wow!" I exclamed. "My dad once got one from Devon but I never got to hold it!" A spikey little pokemon came bounding over to me. "Hey little guy. Um, what are you?"

"Nidoran Male." answered Aaron's Pokedex.

I stared with wonder at the little machine. "These things are so cool." I gave it back to Aaron and walked back over to Nurse Joy. Charmander got up and ran to me and jumped back on my head. "You really like it up there don't you? Nice view eh?" I asked it. "Char!" it replied. I got to Nurse Joy and asked if I could get a PokeDex.

"Yes, would you like the Kanto or Hoenn Version?" She asked me pulling two out of a cabinet and showing them to me.

"Um, the Kanto Version please." I recived the dark red pokedex and opened it. My Charmander slid down to my shoulder to get a better look.

"Charmander." said the Dex. " From the time in was born, a flame burns at the tip of its tail."

"Yeah, I figured that one out the hard way." I thought.

The Pokedex continued, "Its life would end if the flame were to go out." I made a mental note to keep that in mind. "Thank you. This is way to cool." I told the Nurse and walked back to the other students.

How are we doing things here? Are we going by levels or just battling like in the Anime? In either case, how would learning attacks work?

As Larry rejoined us I noticed he had gotten the Kanto Verison of the Pokedex. "Wow, That one is bigger then mine...strange," I chuckled. Then everyone gave a slight chuckle along with Josh's Chatot.
I turned towards the Chatot and decided to gather it's data.

The pokedex stated in a droning voice," Chatot, a music note pokemon, It has a bad habit of mimicing human language."

"Cool!" I said," Now I just have to get a few hundred more pokemon," I said aloud.

He set up his stuff and changed. When he came out he was in his usual uniform. "Sneasel, make sure nobody touches my stuff, that means pokemon too. Oh, one more thing..." He gave sneasel a small box. "If this starts beeping, come find me. The beeping will slow the closer you get. Trying to avoid Nurse Joys lack of fashion, he leapt out the window with his pokeballs in hand and started into the forest. "All I need is one more ice pokemon, and or perhps a ghost to listen i on stuff for me.

Battling like in ze anime. You can just add an attack to your Pokemon anytime you want. Just make sure that it can learn the move in one way or the other, breeding, level up, etc.

Oh yeah, and DP moves are allowed.

I laughed at Aaron's comment. "Yeah, we'll take sometime." I stroked my Chatot, grinning. "Hey Chatot, say: Josh is Amazing!"

Chatot just sat on my shoulder, turning it's head to look at me. It then cawed, and said, "Take sometime."

"Oh," I said, laughing. "If you say so...Hey guys, shall we head out to our dorm? Then we can go and check out our teacher..."

I stood up and walked to the door. It would be great to see where we would all be staying!

"Hey, Josh, do you have any idea where the library is? Perhaps we could go down there after we've seen our rooms?"
I was also looking forward to meeting our teacher. I wondered what he or she would be like...

Charizard ruler, just a quick question, did you choose the fact that you read magazines at Rustboro randomly, or had you heard of it somewhere else? 0.o Rapid, you thinking what I am thinking? No? Oh well...

I sure am. Roxanne...also, guys, lets just be in the room now, okay? Otherwise we'll take for ever to walk towards it. You know what I mean.

"Yeah, we'll go there after we check out our..." As I stepped into our dorm, I was blown away be it. It was a big, spacious room, with 5 beds, 5 bathrooms-and that really impressed me-and a window which over looked the beach.

I immediately rushed to the bed nearest to the window, and plonked down onto it. "I think," I said aloud, to everyone. "That our teacher will be a day or 2 late. According to the booklet I read about the school, they do that to let the pupils relax a little, so lets do just that!"

Chatot, annoyed that he couldn't perch on my shoulder due to me bouncing, flew and perched on a nearby chair instead. I grinned. We were all going to have a lot of fun.

I ran over to the bed next to Josh's.(So I can see the beach as well.) "Wow, this place is ridiculously huge," I stated, while I unpacked my things into a small dresser beside the bed. "Turtwig,Tur!" My Turtwig cheerfully chanted as he jumped on my bed to view the beach. "I guess Turtwig would like to go see the beach...I guess I'll go...anyone else want to come along?" I asked, " Maybe i'll be in the mood to battle,"

I watched as the kid with the Sneasel jumped out the window and looked at the Sneasel. The kid was weird and had a somewhat... evil air about him. I decided to ignore him and watch Mudkip. He was absent-mindedly wandering around the room, he seemed a little bored. I turned to the boy next to me and decided to introduce myself.

"Hi. I'm Jack" I said. "That's a really cute Horsea"

I glanced to Mudkip out the corner of my eye and saw he had stopped wandering around the room and was sat in the middle of the floor.

Suddenly the box began to ding, and sneasel immediatly leaped into action! sort of...actually he began flailing his arms back and forth around the room and threw the box into a wall finally slamming into somthing and calming down.The box kept beeping rather feverishly and didn't show any signs of slowing down. In fact, it actually began to speed up.

The room was so cool! I got on the bed nearest the door, and Nidoran hopped on too.

As Aaron mentioned a battle, I looked up, and Nidoran's ears flickered. "Sure," I said. "I'll battle with you." Quickly shoving the spare Poke Balls that the Nurse had given me into a drawer next to my bed. My clothes, I left in my case, open on my bed. "Come on Nido," I called the Pokemon, and began to run down the stairs, with my Pokemon in hot pursuit. I stopped to catch my breath at the door of the Academy, and to wait for Aaron.

Yo PPM, you can control my character to make him walk down the beach, oui? And Rapid, I was actually thinking of the irony of mentioning magazines in Rustboro, ginving the circumstances of the other RP we are in, where we are the two J's. ;)

"Oh, hey. I'm Aaron," I said. Horsea happily squealed at the positive comment.

"I'm guessing Horsea is saying thank. That's a pretty cool Duskull yourself. I take it you like Ghost Pokemon?"

I know, Obs. That was what I was trying to say. Weird, eh? Also, a notice: You can only control the teacher that is in your own school. Yes, that's right, we're controlling the teachers. :P

As I got off the bed to go watch the battle, I turned to face Larry. With Chatot on my shoulder, I pointed at his Charmander. "You coming?" I asked him. "Then maybe we could have a double battle!"

I ran out of the room following John then when I reached him at the end of the hallway. "Lets head down to the beach!" I exclaimed. We all headed down to the Beach. "Ahhh, This feels great being on a beach again," I said, digging my toes into the sand." Then I turned to everyone.
So lets see want to have a double battle? Uhh, John your with me, Larry and John you two will fight together," I stated, "Ok ready Turtwig?!" Turtwig jumped infront of me, " TURT!" he called. I could tell he was ready to fight

((I'm not too familiar with RPing in the first-person style, but I think I can manage.))

"Didn't Nurse Joy say the rooms were down this way?" I said aloud, walking down the hall and carefully examining the lables above the doors.

I was a little overwhelmed. This was the first time I had been away from home, in a strange new land, lost in the crazy labyrinth of an academy building. Luckily, it wasn’t all bad, since I had my new pokemon partner with me. The tiny elekid stayed at my heels as I walked, rotating his arms furiously as he tried to keep up. “You haven’t seen anyone yet, have you, Roger?”

Roger was what I decided to call the little electric pokemon--since it was a popular name used among people who liked to commutate with walkie-talkies--and he seemed to respond to it very well, grabbing onto the cloth of my trousers and pointing in the direction of two students sitting with a horsea and a duskull. “Hey, there!” I shouted, glad to finally see some kids my age, and I instantly sprinted up to the two boys. “I’m Casey,” I said, pointing a thumb back at me as I introduced myself. “And this is Roger.”

The elekid looked a little nervous as he peeked around my leg, although he did seem interested in the other pokemon, grinning up at them from the floor. I was about to ask the boys for their names, but a loud crash in the room close by instantly diverted my attention. “What was that?!” I asked, head jerking in the direction of the disturbance. And what's that beeping?

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I'm been extremely busy today...

The Rustburo magazines were just some random comment....

"Of course I'm coming!" I walked down to the beach with my 3 new friends. "Hey, maybe we can catch some new pokemon here too!" I said and looked around hopefully but there was nothing to be seen except the sea, sand and a distant mountain. I was so excited about battling with my Charmander. "Speaking of battling, where's Charmander?" I wondered aloud looking around. I began to get scared. Where was Charmander? Then an orange face bent down from from the top of my head to look at me upside-down. "Whewww..." I had completely forgotten that Charmander liked to ride on my head. "Ok, now that I'm set I'm ready to battle!" I said. "Char Char!!" Charmander echoed and jumped down to the ground with a brightly burning tail.

"Hmmm..." I mused. "Which John am I with?" I looked at the boy with the Chatot and the boy with the Nidoran and grinned.

Look, let's get this straight. I'm Josh. Obs is John. Understand?

"You'd be with me." I said, grinning. "Don't make fun of Aaron's mistake, you mean little boy."

I turned to look at Aaron and John. "We're ready. You guys start." My heart was thumping in my chest. This would be my first actual battle!

Author:  Charizardruler [ Sat Feb 17, 2007 11:30 pm ]
Post subject: 

Oops sorry. I had actually flipped back to the first page to check names and actually read both you and obs as John. :D Sorry for the confusion.

"Oh, so you're Josh. I'm sorry. My mom always said I needed to get my ears checked..." I turned to Josh. "I'm a bit nervous since I haven't really battled at all before this so I'm probably not very good." I bent down to my Charmander. "Are you ready?" I asked the little pokemon. Charmander nodded and tried to lunge for Aaron's Turtwig but I held him back. "We can only start once everyone is ready." I told him. Charmander sat down and sighed, a large cloud of smoke issuing from his nostils. "Hehe, I think my Charmander doesn't want to battle." I told Josh. Charmander rolled his eyes and pawed the ground.

God, I see what RPing in the first person does to you now. Let me get this sorted: Charizard Ruler (Larry) is teaming up with Rapid (Josh) against me (John) and PPM (Aaron?) Is that right?

Nidoran jumped next to Aaron's Turtwig and yelped at the opponents. "Are we all set?" I asked the opposition. This was my first real battle where trainers were concerned. I had battled using holographic Pokemon at the Holon Tower such as Registeel and Articuno, but never thought it important to train with weak ones...

Flannery, I technically started off the whole first person thing. When I joined the Midnight RP, I chose to do it in first person, and then it kind of leaked into this. Oops. Rapid, one doesn't have to RP in first person if one doesn't want does one? :P

How will we do this just say a command then wait for a reply?

I whispered to John, "Want to make the first move?"

I smiled sheepishly and nodded as Aaron made his comment.

As the girl came up to us I grinned at the Elekid that was hiding behind her. Mudkip wandered over to Roger and stuck out one of his legs.

"I'm Jack and that's Mudkip" I said as I nervously rubbed the back of my head.

At the sound of the loud crash I looked over towards the Sneasel. It had thrown the box it was holding into the wall and the beeping from the box was incredibly fast and very irritating.

"Mudkip use Water Gun on that box" I said calmly.

Mudkip wandered over to the box and blasted a jet of water at it. The beeping of the box eventually slowed down before stopping.

"Yep, I'm set" I told John. Charmander lept to his feet and stared intently at the opposing pokemon. I hoped that my Charmander wouldn't faint. It would look kinda bad if I had to have Nurse Joy heal my pokemon withing the first 24 hours. "Ok Josh. Give us the word." I tried to calm my nerves but somehow I just knew that I would look foolish infront of these guys that had been around battling almost all their lives. I rememebered my dream to become a Gym Leader. "Well," I thought to myself "We all have to start somewhere."

Author:  The Obsidian Wolf [ Sun Feb 18, 2007 9:17 am ]
Post subject: 

I think that the battling will work by way of trust. I will say "Nidoran used Hyper Beam (jk) and the attack sped towards Charmander." Then I suppose that you Chazruler, would either say -"Charmander dodged the attack," or "Charmander was thrown back by the force of the attack" or "Charmander suddenly grew fins and swam off into the wild blue yonder." Up to you. :P

This was going to be a fabulous battle! With each challenge that I overcame, I would be able to avenge my Mother and Father's death...

"Nidoran!" I called, not wasting time. "Let's get going! Poison Sting!" The Pokemon opened its mouth, and fired a horde of tiny needles, all loaded with poison. The spray was aimed at both of the opponents, Josh's Chatot and Larry's Charmander. I wondered how they would react to my quick attack
as in, speedy attack, as opposed to the attack called Quick Attack. :)
