If you guys want, you can also use this instead:



In truth, that's probably easier, its much smaller and GTS is using a smaller userbar sized banner as well. Plus I like how this one came out too.

Also, another reason why its probably good that we're hosting this on GTS is due to the fact that we seem to have a lot more people interested in this over here than they do over there. Hosting it there would boost attention for it on their forum which will probably help even the sides a bit.

As for the RP itself, I'll be posting the storyline in just a bit on both forums, but I don't quite have the map ready yet.

I prefer the bigger one, but I can use the smaller one if it helps with the GTS site. The only problem about GTS I have is I can't make my writing purple :/ But I'll get over it ^^ So from what I gathered earlier we will be playing as Pokemon and theres no humans at all? Like the Guild of Salvation you did (Which I must say, I'm very upset that it died ): )

While I like the bigger one, I must say the smaller one turned out great.

Plus, it would only make sense for each sides banners to be relatively the same length and such. So, I will be using that one.

Here's the preview of the RP. Just know that there's going to be more added to this soon, including the map, rules, and so on.

Also, we're on the Nightjade faction while GTS+ is on the Urban Unity faction. They get more technology, but we get the pwnsome evolutions. They're also hit with the infection much more than we are.


INTRODUCTION

Originally conceived by NES2, this RP is an inter-forum RP where the Role Players of Pokémon Elite 2000 (PE2K for short) go up against the Role Players of the Global Trade Station Plus forums (GTS). Within the RP’s storyline itself, RPers from PE2K take on the role of one of the factions in the RP while GTS’s RPers take on the role of the other. There are a few smaller NPC factions also, but these are simply inserted into the storyline to provide additional depth. The main conflict will be between these two factions.

The RP is set in the world of Talandra, a world similar to the ones in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Series where this world is inhabited only by Pokémon, which means no humans will appear in this RP. In this RP, you will assume control of a Pokémon character.

THE STORY SO FAR

As it has always been on the Pokémon world of Talandra, there were Pokémon that kept to nature, and there were those that had spent their time focused on the innovation of technology and engineering. Officially, those that kept more to nature called themselves the Nightjade. Meanwhile, the Pokémon that made up those that focused on technology were called the Urban Unity, striving to advance the progression of Pokémon civilization and technology. In truth, throughout time, these two factions have had their violent enmities, but for many years, the two factions simply kept their distance from each other and attempted to stay out of each other’s business. While the Pokémon of Nightjade flourished with the beauty and wonders of nature, the Pokémon of the Urban Unity constructed buildings, developed science and innovation, and founded a more civilized society. For many years, the Pokémon of the Urban Unity believed they had the advantage over the Nightjade simply because they had weapons and even motorized vehicles while the Nightjade had their magic. Regardless, as before, they simply kept their distance, still having plenty of land to develop on.

The Nightjade soon made a very vital discovery that had once been thought to be impossible. Naturally, the Nightjade Pokémon were the only ones that had access to certain evolutionary items such as Fire Stones, Leaf Stones, and Dragon Scales. For the longest time, it had been assumed that only certain Pokémon could ever actually use these items. Many Pokémon thought only a Vulpix, Growlithe, or an Eevee could ever use a Fire Stone, and so on. But in truth, this was not entirely true. For others… it simply took a longer amount of time and more prolonged exposure to the stone. Originally, Pokémon that thought they couldn’t use these stones simply ignored them or quickly traded them for something else. It wasn’t until one day that an Eevee named Jess and her friend Natalya, a Furret, had discovered a Dragon Scale and a Metal Coat from one of their recent adventures. Immediately after finding them, Natalya believed they were useless to them and immediately thought of the Poké money it would fetch for the two of them instead. However, Jess, never really liking to sell away her treasures, encouraged Natalya to keep her Metal Coat. In the end, the two of them hung onto them like good luck charms.

Two years later, the seemingly impossible happened. Jess had actually managed to evolve into a draconic evolution of Eevee, later called “Dracoeon,” through the prolonged exposure to the Dragon Scale. She had turned deep purple in color, now with two dragon wings, two dragon-like fins in the shape of dragon wings over her ears, and a spiked draconic tail. Almost immediately, Jess became a celebrity, having discovered a new way for Eevees to evolve. And then, not very long afterword, Natalya had evolved as well, becoming an evolution of Furret with a larger size and with metallic spines and armor over her fur, later called “Spurret.” After that, Jess and Natalya simply let the Meowth out of the bag and were pretty open when it came to revealing the secret. Several years later, the Nightjade Pokémon had discovered the advantage they were looking for. Many of them were able to evolve into new Pokémon, while the Urban Unity Pokémon were left envying this power. As expected, the Nightjade Pokémon had a much easier time obtaining the power, still able to find the stones and other evolutionary items, while the Urban Unity no longer had them as their urban cities covered the landscapes. Regardless, both sides, now even in strength, still kept their distance from each other, though the overconfidence of both sides was napping the nerves of the other.

However, one unintentional disaster of enormous proportions unleashed the tornado that would spark the war between the two factions.

One day, Shaymin came across an incredible source of power and potential in her travels, a power known as the Indigo Corona. She had found the glowing twilight-colored sphere of light on a forgotten mountaintop, and curiosity had gotten the better of her, deciding to investigate the Indigo Corona instead of consulting the other legendaries about it. She approached it and then touched it, causing her body to become the adopter of an overwhelming amount of power, raising her potential and abilities to incalculable heights. Very quickly and very easily, it became far too much for her to control, so much so that it droves her mad. To avoid unintentionally hurting anyone with her new, uncontrollable power, she quickly burrowed and drove her way toward the center of Talandra’s core, now able to dig wildly through even solid rock. Meanwhile, even the magma and fire of Talandra’s core didn’t stop her in her mad rush. Finally, nearly bursting from the power of the Indigo Corona, she finally reached the center of Talandra’s core, finally as far away as she could get from the rest of the world.

However, even that wasn’t enough. Unable to contain the overwhelming power, she then burst into a massive flower that grew from the very center of Talandra upward. Very quickly and very swiftly, the root network of this massive flower grew so huge that it began using the entire world as a flower pot, growing wildly until it hit the surface. With the root system now entrenched throughout the world, massive and enormous flowers, along with thick flower beds, began to emerge on Talandra’s surface, growing even in deserts, mountains, frozen wastelands, swamps, and other places that would have never seen unnaturally colorful flowers like these.

The situation only grew worse, however. These new unusually colorful flowers, now called Shaymin Infection Flowers, caused Pokémon that came into contact with them to swiftly turn into grass types, suddenly finding themselves with leaves and flowers growing out of them as a result of touching or breathing in the “infective” pollen. These new grass type Pokémon also found themselves inheriting some of Shaymin’s abilities, such as the ability to purify air, as well as the unintentional spread of flowers around them. Many Pokémon suddenly believe these Shaymin Flower Infected Pokémon are spreading the infection even further, even though the flowers that are created by these new grass type Pokémon are harmless. However, not every Pokémon believes that…

In the meantime, the massive Shaymin Infection Flowers not only infect Pokémon, but they’ve ruined countless cities as well, especially within the Urban Unity. Many of these Pokémon discovered that many of their buildings, factories, roads, and innovations had been destroyed as these flowers tore through the asphalt and concrete. Immediately, many of the Urban Unity Pokémon suspected that the Nightjade Pokémon were responsible for these destructive flowers and the infection, believing they encouraged or enslaved Shaymin to unleash this catastrophe upon them in effort to destroy their technology and forcefully bring them back to nature. In their defense, the Nightjade Pokémon tried to convince the Pokémon of the Urban Unity that they had nothing to do with it, but the Urban Unity Pokémon didn’t believe them.

Now, the Urban Unity wants payback against the Nightjade Pokémon while the Pokémon of Nightjade are trying to defend themselves from their old enemies. Meanwhile, the Shaymin Flower Infected Pokémon are left in the loop, finding themselves being pursued by those wishing to eliminate them to stop the spread of the infection. What’s even worse is the arising of the Dark Lilly faction… an entire faction of Shaymin Flower Infected Pokémon actually trying to spread the Shaymin Infection even further.

Life in Talandra will never be the same…

THE SHAYMIN FLOWER INFECTION

First and foremost, Pokémon that are already grass types can’t be infected by this.

Essentially, any Pokémon that has been afflicted with the Shaymin Flower Infection is now a grass type, which is either tacked onto the single type they have, or replaces one of the types they had (in the case of a dual type Pokémon). So a Ratatta would become a Normal/Grass type, while a Pidgey would become a Grass/Flying type. In terms of appearance, Pokémon that have been infected are now mainly green in color with leaves and flowers blossoming around them. Like Shaymin, if they stay still in a particular place for at least ten minutes, they cause flowers to bloom around them.

There are both advantages and disadvantages to this infection:

In terms of advantages, first and foremost, an infected Pokémon is obviously infected and can’t be any more infected regardless of how much more they linger around the Shaymin Flowers, giving them free range even in the “red zones.” In addition, infected Pokémon can use any grass-type move, and only need water to survive. Meanwhile, their lifespan has also been tripled (even though this may not be applicable when it comes to the RP) due to the purifying nature of the Shaymin abilities that have been granted to them. They also are resistant to poisonous gases and can even remove them. Finally, they have regenerative abilities, able to heal considerably faster than normal non-infected Pokémon.

The disadvantages are that many Pokémon are pursuing them to eliminate them. But, in the same scenario, an infected Pokémon can play off of this, using the phobia of their pursuers to scare them by coming close to them and threatening to infect them. Besides this, the infected share the same weaknesses as normal grass types, taking more damage from Fire, Ice, Poison, Flying, and Bug types. But they gain the same resistances as well against Water, Electric, Grass, and Ground types.

FACTIONS & CHARACTERISTICS

THE NIGHTJADE
Played by the Role Players of Pokémon Elite 2000

The Nightjade Faction, which are the main advocates for nature, generally live in caves, treetop villages, and the kinds of small towns made of mud, clay, and wood that are usually found in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. Meanwhile, the main Nightjade alliance realizes that those affected by the Shaymin Flower Infection are not at fault. Even though they weren’t as badly affected as the Urban Unity, there are still a few Nightjade Pokémon with the affliction. The Nightjade are united in force, trying to protect themselves against the Urban Unity while protecting those that have been hit with the affliction.

Advanced Evolution: Only Pokémon within the Nightjade faction can have “Advanced Evolution” forms (fakemon evolutions that aren’t in the games), like the case of Jess the “Dracoeon” and Natalya the “Spurret.” In all cases of Pokémon, the Advanced Evolution form follows this pattern:

Single Stage Pokémon (Farfetch’d, Zangoose, etc.) – These Pokémon can now evolve, with their second stage being their Advanced Evolution form.

Double Stage Pokémon (Vulpix/Ninetales, Munchlax/Snorlax, etc.) – These Pokémon now have a third stage that is their Advanced Evolution form.

Triple Stage Pokémon (Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard, etc.) – The Advanced Evolution form replaces the third stage. So a Pokémon would have to decide to abandon their natural third stage to achieve Advanced Evolution.

These Advanced Evolutions also follow this pattern in relation to the evolution item held:

Fire Stone/Magmarizer – Evolve into a Fire type Pokémon
Thunder Stone/Electirizer – Evolve into an Electric type
Water Stone – Evolve into a Water type
Leaf Stone/Sun Stone – Evolve into a Grass type
Dragon Scale – Evolve into a Dragon type
Metal Coat – Evolve into a Steel type
Dusk Stone – Evolve into a Dark type
Reaper Cloth – Evolve into a Ghost type
Protector – Evolve into a Rock type

Other items, such as the Shiny Stone, Dawn Stone, and so on are left to the discretion of the RPer.

Any Pokémon in an “Advanced Evolution” stage has complete resistance to the Shaymin Flowers.

THE NIGHTJADE TRAITORS (THE SHADOWVINE)
Played by NPCs

This faction is controlled entirely by NPCs. Like the original Nightjade faction they were once a part of, the Shadowvine share the same concern that they need to fight back against the Urban Unity. However, they disagree with the Nightjade for the cases involving the Pokémon affected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. They believe the infected are spreading around the affliction, and need to be eliminated before it consumes them all. They are also against the Nightjade faction for protecting the infected.

Like the Nightjade, some of them are new Advanced Evolutions as well.

THE URBAN UNITY
Played by the Role Players of Global Trade Station Plus

The Urban Unity is mainly an alliance of Pokémon that have learned to make machines, construct advanced buildings, have learned to forge metal, and have mastered the aspects of architecture, engineering, science, and technology. In terms of tech level, they have learned to make any type of technology from the era of World War II and earlier (no nukes, however). This includes motorized vehicles, automatic weapons (though they are not as lethal), airplanes, radios, phones, and so on. Meanwhile, their cities look very similar to towns and cities that were from the era of World War II. The Urban Unity dislikes the Nightjade Pokémon simply for the belief that they refuse to open their mind and embrace the possibilities.

With the current state of affairs, the Urban Unity believe the Nightjade Pokémon either convinced, forced, or tricked Shaymin to unleash the catastrophe of the infective flowers that have turned almost half of their population into grass types while gigantic flowers and rampant flowerbeds have overtaken several of their cities and devoured their roads and technology. They believe the Nightjade did this in an attempt to bring them back down to their level, something that has made the Urban Unity furious as years of work has been utterly destroyed. Regardless, the main Urban Unity faction believes the infected aren’t capable of spreading the disease, so they are willing to protect them.

Urban Unity Technology: – Because the Urban Unity has researched technology, your Pokémon character can be equipped with armor, have a weapon, and even a vehicle (note that because vehicles are WWII era, they’re quite easy to destroy considering the kinds of powers Pokémon have). Your character can also be a specialist and could also create armor, weapons, and vehicles.

Note that the tech level in this RP CAN NOT be advanced. You’re free to produce as many WWII or earlier era technology items as you like, but it may not go any further than that. Note that large machines or vehicles, such as battleships or Boeing B-17-like airplanes, should take time to construct. However, simple devices such as radios can be created in single posts.

Shaymin Flower Infection Aftermath: – About half of the Urban Unity was infected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. Because of this, at least half of the RPers signing up for the Urban Unity should be RPing infected characters. If too many people seem to be dodging this (as in less than only one infected character for every five Urban Unity characters), sign ups may be blocked until willing RPers sign up with infected characters.

Also, many areas within the territory that the Urban Unity controls have been labeled as “red zones,” areas that are overgrown with Shaymin Flowers (these will be highlighted on the map). There are some cities that are within these red zones, but as expected, many of them are in ruins and only Pokémon that have already been infected (or normal grass types) live in them. There is some possibility that lost technology could be salvaged from these sites, however.

THE URBAN UNITY TRAITORS (LOCKDOWN)
Played by NPCs

The traitors of the Urban Unity, known as Lockdown, agree that the Nightjade factions are to blame for the catastrophic Shaymin Flower Infection, and believe its payback time for what they did to their cities. However, unlike the Urban Unity, they believe the infected are a lost cause. Because of that, they believe the infected need to be put out of their misery, and the “red zones” need to be quarantined.

Like the Urban Unity, they too use technology, including armor, weapons, vehicles, and so on.

THE SHADOW LILY
Played by NPCs

Seemingly hated by all, The Shadow Lily faction is comprised entirely of Pokémon infected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. These Pokémon not only enjoy their new attributes, but are actually out to spread the Shaymin Flowers across the world in hopes to infect every last Pokémon on Talandra. Meanwhile, they practice strange voodoo-like black magic, using the eerie and enigmatic powers to ensnare, rapture, and curse those that oppose them.

Well this seem like a good idea. I might not be the best RPer but I am gaining some experience and I think I'm getting better even if I do say so myself. But anyway I would like the smaller banner and also did the RP already start on GTS?

*Off to make an account on GTS crying*

Not yet, sign ups haven't even started yet and I still need to make the map. Also, use either one of the banners, I made the userbar one for people that would just prefer a smaller sized banner.

The Nightjade Faction, which are the main advocates for nature, generally live in caves, treetop villages, and the kinds of small towns made of mud, clay, and wood that are usually found in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. Meanwhile, the main Nightjade alliance realizes that those affected by the Shaymin Flower Infection are not at fault. Even though they weren’t as badly affected as the Urban Unity, there are still a few Nightjade Pokémon with the affliction. The Nightjade are united in force, trying to protect themselves against the Urban Unity while protecting those that have been hit with the affliction.

Advanced Evolution: Only Pokémon within the Nightjade faction can have “Advanced Evolution” forms (fakemon evolutions that aren’t in the games), like the case of Jess the “Dracoeon” and Natalya the “Spurret.” In all cases of Pokémon, the Advanced Evolution form follows this pattern:

Single Stage Pokémon (Farfetch’d, Zangoose, etc.) – These Pokémon can now evolve, with their second stage being their Advanced Evolution form.

Double Stage Pokémon (Vulpix/Ninetales, Munchlax/Snorlax, etc.) – These Pokémon now have a third stage that is their Advanced Evolution form.

Triple Stage Pokémon (Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard, etc.) – The Advanced Evolution form replaces the third stage. So a Pokémon would have to decide to abandon their natural third stage to achieve Advanced Evolution.

These Advanced Evolutions also follow this pattern in relation to the evolution item held:

Fire Stone/Magmarizer – Evolve into a Fire type Pokémon
Thunder Stone/Electirizer – Evolve into an Electric type
Water Stone – Evolve into a Water type
Leaf Stone/Sun Stone – Evolve into a Grass type
Dragon Scale – Evolve into a Dragon type
Metal Coat – Evolve into a Steel type
Dusk Stone – Evolve into a Dark type
Reaper Cloth – Evolve into a Ghost type
Protector – Evolve into a Rock type

Other items, such as the Shiny Stone, Dawn Stone, and so on are left to the discretion of the RPer.

Any Pokémon in an “Advanced Evolution” stage has complete resistance to the Shaymin Flowers.

THE NIGHTJADE TRAITORS (THE SHADOWVINE)
Played by NPCs

This faction is controlled entirely by NPCs. Like the original Nightjade faction they were once a part of, the Shadowvine share the same concern that they need to fight back against the Urban Unity. However, they disagree with the Nightjade for the cases involving the Pokémon affected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. They believe the infected are spreading around the affliction, and need to be eliminated before it consumes them all. They are also against the Nightjade faction for protecting the infected.

Like the Nightjade, some of them are new Advanced Evolutions as well.

THE URBAN UNITY
Played by the Role Players of Global Trade Station Plus

The Urban Unity is mainly an alliance of Pokémon that have learned to make machines, construct advanced buildings, have learned to forge metal, and have mastered the aspects of architecture, engineering, science, and technology. In terms of tech level, they have learned to make any type of technology from the era of World War II and earlier (no nukes, however). This includes motorized vehicles, automatic weapons (though they are not as lethal), airplanes, radios, phones, and so on. Meanwhile, their cities look very similar to towns and cities that were from the era of World War II. The Urban Unity dislikes the Nightjade Pokémon simply for the belief that they refuse to open their mind and embrace the possibilities.

With the current state of affairs, the Urban Unity believe the Nightjade Pokémon either convinced, forced, or tricked Shaymin to unleash the catastrophe of the infective flowers that have turned almost half of their population into grass types while gigantic flowers and rampant flowerbeds have overtaken several of their cities and devoured their roads and technology. They believe the Nightjade did this in an attempt to bring them back down to their level, something that has made the Urban Unity furious as years of work has been utterly destroyed. Regardless, the main Urban Unity faction believes the infected aren’t capable of spreading the disease, so they are willing to protect them.

Urban Unity Technology: – Because the Urban Unity has researched technology, your Pokémon character can be equipped with armor, have a weapon, and even a vehicle (note that because vehicles are WWII era, they’re quite easy to destroy considering the kinds of powers Pokémon have). Your character can also be a specialist and could also create armor, weapons, and vehicles.

Note that the tech level in this RP CAN NOT be advanced. You’re free to produce as many WWII or earlier era technology items as you like, but it may not go any further than that. Note that large machines or vehicles, such as battleships or Boeing B-17-like airplanes, should take time to construct. However, simple devices such as radios can be created in single posts.

Shaymin Flower Infection Aftermath: – About half of the Urban Unity was infected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. Because of this, at least half of the RPers signing up for the Urban Unity should be RPing infected characters. If too many people seem to be dodging this (as in less than only one infected character for every five Urban Unity characters), sign ups may be blocked until willing RPers sign up with infected characters.

Also, many areas within the territory that the Urban Unity controls have been labeled as “red zones,” areas that are overgrown with Shaymin Flowers (these will be highlighted on the map). There are some cities that are within these red zones, but as expected, many of them are in ruins and only Pokémon that have already been infected (or normal grass types) live in them. There is some possibility that lost technology could be salvaged from these sites, however.

THE URBAN UNITY TRAITORS (LOCKDOWN)
Played by NPCs

The traitors of the Urban Unity, known as Lockdown, agree that the Nightjade factions are to blame for the catastrophic Shaymin Flower Infection, and believe its payback time for what they did to their cities. However, unlike the Urban Unity, they believe the infected are a lost cause. Because of that, they believe the infected need to be put out of their misery, and the “red zones” need to be quarantined.

Like the Urban Unity, they too use technology, including armor, weapons, vehicles, and so on.

THE SHADOW LILY
Played by NPCs

Seemingly hated by all, The Shadow Lily faction is comprised entirely of Pokémon infected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. These Pokémon not only enjoy their new attributes, but are actually out to spread the Shaymin Flowers across the world in hopes to infect every last Pokémon on Talandra. Meanwhile, they practice strange voodoo-like black magic, using the eerie and enigmatic powers to ensnare, rapture, and curse those that oppose them.

Dang that is good.

Well, I originally read the storyline at GTS+ but I decided I'd post my opinions here.

I think it is very good. Well thought out and I love the banner, name of the RP, etc...

NightJade are the best!

nice one question though. Is the Urban Unity the only people that can use weapons can't NightJade use like a stick or something?

Yeah, being on Nightjade allows us to be a little more inventive when it comes to creating characters. Should be fun, and thanks for the compliments.

That's fine, actually. Spears, bows and arrows, tomahawks, all that kind of stuff is fine. However, the Urban Unity has access to weapons that we wouldn't have, including guns and explosives.

Hey, welcome to PE2K and thanks for dropping by.

Yeah, I think this will greatly boost the activity on both forums and will introduce all of us to new RPing styles. Should be a lot of fun.

The flower infection sounds oddly familiar...

Neo, you already knew you were going to get compliments.

One day, you're going to get tired of hearing them, ;P

But yeah, either way I think we all have the ability to be creative or inventive when it comes to our character development and such.

As long as you use your imagination, without going too far, you should be good. That is the way I see it. It will be interesting to see which Pokemon some choose to be though.

And Lusankya, I played a game which was based on a flower infection before...
