A Ramzam AKA Innocent Bystander RP
Amazing how a single thing can put your life on an entirely new track. A single explosion that caused a chain reaction so large it decimated buildings, collapsed highways and overpasses, near everything was left as a ruin. The majority of the beings caught in such a blast are one of three things: Dead, soon to die, or in critical condition.
However, a human life is valued greatly. Efforts like those employed by the virtuous Team Magnum. Though their methods may be strange, they’ve always done their best to do the right thing. And the tragedy that befell Goldenrod City, Johto, is no exception.
“This’ll sting just a teeny bit, kid,” a scientist sighed as he injected a strange liquid into your arm. The small pain of the needle instantly died away as the drug spread through your bloodstream. A strange feeling quickly followed, almost as if your very DNA was being changed. Either way, compared to the massive injuries, the needle was like being poked with an eraser.
Team Magnum’s research often involves fields that are normally left alone. One in particular is called The Evolution Project. The injection which evolved humans into Pokémon according to their age, was confirmed to work, though exactly what the injection did was kept secret from all eyes except for those of Team Magnum. The Evolution Project was one of Team Magnum’s shadier activities. They claimed to be treating the victims to extend their lives, however no family visits were allowed.
Eventually, constant pressure from the authorities made Team Magnum admit its actions. The patients couldn’t possibly be saved if they were kept human. In the end, The Evolution Project was allowed to continue and the injection was only to be used if necessary. Though rare, such incidents of which the injection was needed, did come around.
Some of these humans turned Pokémon went to live with whatever remained of their families after adjusting to their new states of being. Others wanted to repay the organization that constantly balanced between right and wrong. These former humans became known as World Defense Agents, being assigned to specific regions of the world, where they would be stationed. These WDA bases vary, depending upon the size of the region and are usually thriving with Pokémon that were formerly humans. On average, only about fifteen humans have residence in these bases. Their roles aren’t on the field, but focus more on support. At the very least, a small team of trained veterinarians are always among the list of humans--after all, Team Magnum does care for its members greatly.
With the ability to respond to calls and arrive on the scene with reasonable haste, WDA squads are the ultimate emergency response teams, from major rescues, to stopping region-wide crime, they do their best to resolve the issue.
P.S. I have a final mission planned to end the RP eventually--actually the majority of the missions slowly build an interesting story. The more squads, the faster we’ll reach the end...though it'd be ideal to have full squads.
The Map of Riora
Don’t forget to enlarge it to full size so it’ll look better.
How this works
I’ll think up a mission that I’ll assign to your squad, which you are then free to carry out as you want to. A single mission should last fifteen posts at the very least.
A squad is made up of four members:
=There are two Mains, who are usually strong Pokémon that have skills when it comes to battling.
=One Strategist, who is less of a battler and more of a thinker that can really use their brain to get the squad out of tight situations. These are often the most knowledgeable members of the squads, who can be quite clever, making them a slight force to be reckoned with, when in battle.
=Lastly, there is a single Spotter, who operates the radio and can check back with the base for mission updates and such. Their gadgets vary from Spotter to Spotter, but always include a device that links to one of many Team Magnum satellites, to give a fairly detailed map of the surrounding area, along with a radio back to the base. The Spotter tends to be in the back of the battle, not being the best of fighters.

Definitely no God-modding, let alone anything that’ll identify you as a n00b.
If you don’t use paragraphs, you will
be told to correct yourself and if you don’t, then you’ll be kicked.
If I find you are typing in such a way that I can’t understand, then I’ll tell you to shove your posts through some spell-check program. Also, if you don’t use punctuation, that’s an auto-kick.
Unless I say so, you don’t hand out a mission to someone--that’s my job.
I trust we can all follow the PE2K rules?
Don’t go charging into a battle as a Pelipper or something and beat a Raichu, okay? Nothing like that--be realistic.
Be polite to your fellow RP members.
I’m going to trust that you’ll all follow the common courtesies and rules of the RP.
The more DETAIL
you put into your signup, the better a chance you have of being accepted.
I want to see you put “Whatever happened to Johto?” at the end of your signup.
Normally I'd put it into a code, but that doesn't seem to work here...
(What Pokémon are you? Bear in mind that in my RP‘s a basic stage could best a third stage Pokémon, so just pick your favorite.)
(You’ll have to type the name of the squad you’re joining if you’re going to join one.)
(Nothing overpowered I.E. Move Tutor Attacks.)
(Physical traits that set them apart from others of the same species.)
Rashimo (Rush-EE-moe) Utsubi (UHT-sue-bee)
A normal Typhlosion is about 5’7”, but Rashimo is roughly 6’1” (meaning he isn’t exactly six feet and one inch tall--possibly a little taller, but more likely he‘s a teeny bit shorter,) which brings his weight to somewhere between 180 and 200 pounds. There’s also a scar on the left side of his face. It serves as a “souvenir,” from a run-in with an angry Scyther. His eyes are also green (rather than the average red.)
Rashimo can suppress the flames on his back to the point of being just enough to cover the spot where the fire originates. He’ll never leave without his black, fireproof messenger bag in which he carries a number of useful items. Its been created specifically by the people at Team Magnum’s capital laboratory to keep whatever’s inside at a cool room temperature, no matter what it’s like outside. A sketchpad and a mechanical pencil also happen to be a couple of the things he carries in his messenger bag.
Despite his mean and dangerous appearance, Rashimo’s actually very huggable if he’ll let you get close enough. Underneath his tough new Pokémon appearance, is a youthful adolescent who does what he thinks is best. A real defender, he turns into a nerveless hero when the ones he cares about are in trouble. Without a second thought, he’d willingly throw himself into the line of fire, all to defend a human he has a crush on. Naturally, the girl gets herself in trouble from time to time and that’s where Rashimo comes in. However that
is a completely different story.
Rashimo’s a natural pessimist, doubting his abilities in most areas. He doesn’t consider himself physically fit as a Typhlosion and does his best cram in an hour of exercise on a daily basisalong with keeping his weight up, for some strange reason. Perhaps it's to slow down his overly high metabolism? His hobbies include writing and drawing, but his strong suit is more toward writing. No matter how hard he tries, he just can’t draw well enough, by his own standards, even though most consider him quite the talented artist. He’s filled several sketchbooks with drawings of the people and Pokémon he sees around the city and on his missions. His determination to improve his skills with a pencil are very apparent, by the drawing board in his room along with the large boxes that are filled with sheets of printing paper--his ideal drawing surface.
A normally carefree kid, who’s into rock, rather than rap or hip-hop--the latest music fad in urban culture, Rashimo’s never been too good at reaching out and making friends, even though he becomes depressed and risks dying from loneliness if he doesn’t have at least a couple people to be around. He doesn’t take too well to being personally offended and can really have a bad mouth of his own, usually striking back. Being the kind of person who likes to have their revenge, he isn’t exactly the person you’d want to make angry.
