Roleplay Name: The Legend of Tacid
Roleplay Genre: Pokemon
Setting: Samurai times

Plot: Two sides at war. The Black Dojo vs The Imperial Army. Neither is considered good or evil at this time. You are a human with one pokemon at your side, either samurai, ninja, or part of the 6 man recovery unit sent on a special mission. Not just the pokemon battle. You may choose to not have a pokemon when you start.

Additional Rules: No godmodding
No double Posting
No Legendaries
One warning and you get the boot.
You are only allowed one main character. Other may be added if they aren't main to keep the story moving.
The Pokemon you have must be specialists in one of these 5 categories

1. Stealth/Infultration
2. Protectors
3. Melee Combat
4. Ranged Combat
5. All Around (not too good in anything particular)

You need to create a character: name, gender, rank in the war (if any), personality, and any interesting traits that may make them interesting (you may choose not to do this) and a Pokemon: Name, gender, moves, personality, interesting traits (again optional).

Ranks: You may not start above rank 3

Ninja Ranks:
1. Grunt
2. Bladesworn
3. Captain
4. Blademaster
5. Elite

Samurai Ranks:
1. Soldier
2. Private
3. Sergeant
4. Lieutenant
5. Shogun

6 Man recovery unit (not ranks but reasons you are on the team, one person each). Remember that your pokemon must reflect what your job is. (ex: a Scout should not use a Tyranitar but Kecleon would be a wise choice)

1. Leader
2. Scout
3. Weapon Specialist
4. Philosopher
5. Cook
6. ??undecided??

*Remeber, Samurai times = no pokeballs which means ur pokemon travel with you, so you may want to avoid a Wailord or Slugma... just saying.


My Character:
Name: Pan Tamaran
Gender: Male
Specialist: Melee Combat
Personality: Calculating and overly serious. Experienced in war and sees leadership as a heavy burden.
6 Man team: Leader

His Pokemon:
Name: Growlithe
Gender: Male
Moves:
Extremespeed
Flamethrower
Bite
Roar
Personality: Brave and follows his master without question. Bears the burden of leading the other pokemon as well.


------we start-----

Location: Sleeping Quarters of the Imperial Army. Spacious room with only the essentials: bed, washing basin, table and bathroom.

"He wants me to do WHAT?! But I just got back from my last mission and now this?" Pan Tamaran was not amused at the instructions he received from his superior. "it is only a Legend and they think it is worth enough time to devote a company of 6 people, well experienced professionals even, to go on a wild Farfetch'd chase towards a myth!"

Growlithe dug heavily into his food. It wasn't that he was trying to disrespect his master talking to him. He just was very tired and hungry after their large trip back from their last mission.
He doesn't really expect me to answer him anyway... I mean when he talks like this, anyone who responds or gives advice to him is basically talking to a Psyduck
Growlithe gave a low muffled growl anyway.

"Darn right it angers me! Tomorrow I meet my first member of the team. I hand picked 'em myself you know."

-At these words Growlithe stopped eating and just stared at his dish full of food.

"What? I'll have you know that these people are the finest that I could find on such a short notice. You be thankful they didn't stick me with a military squad again."

Growlithe went back to eating his food, slower this time. After awhile Growlithe raised his head and headed outside for some fresh air. On his way through the door it picked up... "We're training tomorrow as well. We need to be in the upmost shape for this mission Growlithe." Yes master, I understand, lets see this new recruits pokemon in action. I will not be pleased with anything but the most fit.

---Daybreak---

Location: Forest clearing

"They said the first person would show. I don't like this waiting. Doesn't impress me for my first recruit to be late." Pan Tamaran took out his sword and started to polish it, holding it up towards the sun every now and then.

Growlithe crouched into a laying position. He was apprehensive and ready to strike at the slightest sound. It closed its eyes and let its ears do the sight seeing. His ears always worked better when he closed his eyes. You could see his ears twitch at every chirp and rustling. This pokemon was on guard, as usual. Nothing could surprise it, or so it thought.

I hear Pidgey chirping to the right of me, 5 bounds away. No threat... I hear a Rattata chewing on a nut to the back left of me, 14 bounds away, no threat. I hear... nothing. Nothing is never a good thing to hear. I smell...
I smell...

Growlithe opened its eyes at once and raised its head. Pan spoke, "I feel it too." Suddenly...

(continued)...

Suddenly a Spearow popped out of a tree and flew right by Pan's head. In the distance several birds flew off as well as if something big was moving through the forest.

Turning to Growlithe, Pan spoke. "We may have to cut this rendevous short Growlithe." And with that Pan and Growlithe took refuge in a nearby tree so as to observe without being observed.

Keeping low and movement to a minimum, Pan stood very still and decided to throw his pouch with his sharpening stone into the clearing. That might entice whoever and whatever this was to come closer to their hiding spot so he could get a better look at them.

Sure enough, something was coming...

Sun looked around. The birds had signalled his arrival.Ditto (as a Slaking) was rampaging through the other side of the forest, and draw any attention away from him. They were Ninja legends in their minds andd now... they were just practicing their skills.Now their waas a pouch with a pointy end in the clearing, and he moved towards it, knowing that enemies use this trick.

Pan looked curiously at what seemed to be a Slaking, though upon further study of its face would tell you this was no Slaking at all. Pan found it odd that a Slaking would be in this area, and much more fascinated by the fact that this one wasn't lazy at all. It must have a reason for thrashing about madly.

Growlithe was confused to no end. This Slaking doesn't smell like a Slaking at all. It isn't acting like any Slaking I've ever seen. It closed its eyes and took another try at the scents of the air and caught something else. A human was not far from this location, maybe 20 paces away, hidden in the forest brush. It gave a low growl.

Pan took a look at Growlithe and put 2 and 2 together. Growlithe was looking away from the threatening Slaking. Something more sinister was pulling its attention. This was simply a diversion. With this incident being so close to town, and the threat not showing their face, Pan decided to not take any chances.

Jumping headlong into the clearing he was just in moments ago, he called out. "You best go back to where you came from ninja. I know exactly where you are!" That was a lie. "Growlithe! Use Flamethrower and make a signal flare!"

Growlithe obeyed immediately. It reared its head back and shot a powerful Flamethrower straight up into the air about 35 feet.

"The Imperial guard of this area will be here any minute! You best move along before they make there way to me! Growlithe! Shoot up another flare!" Hopefully someone would see Pan's and Growlithe's flare, or Pan just made a BIG mistake...

Jen was practising. Outside the samurai temple; he and Flare were trying out their swords technique.Flare twitched. Jen knew he had heard something and Flare pointed towards the forest. He heard a loud crash from the forest and guessed at a Tyranitar, but he was very wrong...

Pan stopped the urge to swallow in a gulp. Now was not the time to show fear.

"You heard what I said. Squads have been warned, and your are in civilian territory. You must have had some death wish coming this far in to kill Imperials like me. Now put that toy away before I say the kill word for my Growlithe behind you."

Growlithe bared his teeth and his hair stood up on the top of his back. His ears were lowered and was in position for a final strike. Throat. Go for the throat. Wait for the word. Go for the throat...

Pan turned his head slowly so that one eye caught a glimpse of the hand holding the sword. He whispered, "I don't want to kill you but you are a ninja..." A smirk crossed his face. He had a feeling the ninja was smiling too, but just a feeling. He hoped the reinforcements were on their way.

if I may join, if you please,

Ill be this:

Name: Hiroki
Gender: Female
Rank: Healing Team specialist (part of 6 man recovery unit), good at long term recovery missions, not excellent but well in archery and getting out of harsh situations
Personality: Very quiet and VERY observant-can tell a situation or person just by looking at it/them. Hides past history, is tough, and is ALWAYS calm so no one can ever tell what she is thinking or feeling.
Traits: Stubborn, caring, daring, and refuses to leave someones side if she can help it. Very tactical and stratical
Equipment: A few daggers and arrows for herself and others when they are out, and everything else that can be imagined for any situation.
Looks: Has black hair into a bun under a black cap(I couldn't find a better word), has dark brown (almost black) eyes, and is wearing a black long sleeves outfit with black pants.

Pokemon: Kinar
Arcanine
Gender: Female
Moves:
Extremespeed
Other moves are unknown since she doesn't use them. She is very caring and generous, but can act vicious. Hiroki rides on her back to get to people who need her help and Kinar has packs for extra needs. She is needed for her durability and speed.


Please let me join if you have room.
3 things:
1. Who is Tom?
2. I edit a lot. A LOT. I type a lot too. Sorry.
3. Kinar is for my protection and transfer.

Watching from a distance, Hiroki and Kinar watched the battle ready to take place. Hiroki was deep in thought, and in the next moment, she jumped onto Kinar's back. "Extremespeed!" She said loudly, and in the next second they were gone and advancing toward the forest...

Later, she arrived approximately 100 yards away from the event taking place. She knew that the ninja knew she was there, but opposed no threat.
She noted the situation and muttered it under her breath. Then she looked at the two of them and realized:
That guy...i think he's the one I was supposed to meet today...I might be in his crew...

Suddenly, she knew what to do. She made eye contact with the ninja, smirked, and disappeared into the bushes...

(I'm going to use first person from now on.)
Using a secret technique, I moved around the bushes quietly, and used a scent bottle to blend into my surroundings-my scent, my sound, and Kinar were all undetectable. I placed herself close enough to the clearing to attack at a moments notice, but far enough not to be spotted. I made eye contact with the man and his Growlithe, but by the looks on his face, I shouldn't be this close...
He obviously didn't know that the ninja can't hear, see, or smell me without endangering himself...
But he sure seemed worried enough...

The ninja looked at the man's face and saw him looking behind him. He turned around suddenly, moving the man with him. I thought for a second then got an idea. If only I can distract the ninja for long enough, the man with his dragonite I saw earlier may come. I'm pretty sure I saw him headed this way.Maybe even the other two trainers, but they were further away...

I walked out of the bushes, smiling. Believe it or not, many men had flinched when I walked out of hiding like this. They were all women-loving fools who thought I was a defenseless, stupid, beautiful woman. Of course this man was too good to do that, but it showed him that I wasn't scared.

"Well," I started off. "What is a professional ninja like you doing in a place like this?" This better hold off until others come. It should, at least. I hope...

Wow, dude, when I saw your application for this, I was like...woah...

Name: Joshua Nanacr (Pronounced Na-Na-Curr (Don't ask me why I chose that last name.))
Gender: Male
Rank: Private
Specialist: Ranged Combat
Personality: Even though he is sometimes shy, when he is near his comrades, he is brave to a certain limit. He would rather run to a better position than fight head on. His accuracy is known to be almost spot-on. He uses a normal, but rather large, oak bow.
Interesting Traits/Facts: He is an orphan, raised by a mentor in the Imperial army that he will not state who the person might be.

His Pokèmon:
Name: "Speedy" the Treeko
Gender: Male
Moves:
Bullet Seed
Tackle
(I'll edit the rest later..can't think of them right now!)
Personality: Shy around other humans, but not Pokèmon, Speedy is known for his agileness in the battle field. He, like Joshua, are both great at accuracy. He would risk everything to save Joshua.
Interesting Traits/Facts: Speedy was an orphan too. Joshua found him one day, and they became best friends.

Rather lengthy, I do say! I'll wait to be accepted before I do anything...

Rambo jumped off of Dragonite, right between the battle of Tom and Pan.
Rambo glanced at Pan, slightly shaking. Rambo as fast as lighting, drew his large knife and glarred at Tom.
"I'm the law out here. Don't push it. Push it, and I'll give you a war you'll never forget." Rambo glarred.

"No law I've heard of.Help me Slaking!" As a HUGE Slaking came out of the Forest and swung a Tree at the three Imperials. "Bye bye..." Tom whispered as he jumped out of sight.

*Why thank you for the...er....opinion. I know, I do type a lot...*
*I speak as Hiroki in first person*
I had to think of a way out. Quick. The man had disappeared and the Slakoth, no, Ditto, was swinging a tree at us. Then I got it. I laid completely flat on the ground, seeing as I was closest to the tree, and yelled to Kinar.
"Kinar! Flamethrower!"
Kinar leaped out of her hiding place and burned the tree all the way through so it missed the other imperials.
"Good work."I sighed. I looked up and gasped
The Slakoth had disappeared, along with it's owner.
This is going to be a hard one to figure out...

^((It was a SlaKING and you can't know it's a Ditto because you saw no transforming, you couldn't have controlled Ditto by saying it left cause it's MY pokemon and you can't have gotten away without a scratch when he swung a TREE at you so I'm going to alternate a bit))


Then Slaking returned and dug up the earth and swung a tree so low that no one could dodge in any way.

Joshua took out his bow and some oil-drenched arrows. He rubbed the arrows against the ground. They set on fire.

"Time to get rid of that tree. Get ready to rush in there, Speedy." Said Joshua, aiming his bow at the tree that the Slaking was swinging around.

"Treecko!" Said Speedy. Hidden in the trees several feet away, Joshua lined up his bow and shot it. Following the arrow, Speedy ran right behind it, ready to attack.

(So yea...I couldn't wait to be accepted, but he isn't on and responding...)

Inside the samurai temple, Lylia was practicing her sword skills with her scyther, Slash.

" Slash, slice the dummy with a night slash."

Slash's scythe glowed black, and he sliced the dummy in half

"Good job, Slash."
