Before I say anything
else, believing Team RP VI is a continuation of the previous Team RPs is a common misperception. The storyline is all new, so don’t worry too much about what happened in the previous ones.
The setting of this RP will be modern day in the Pokémon World, meaning only technology that is available in real life will be available in this RP. The exceptions to this rule apply to chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biology. Researching genetic mutations/modification, creating biological weapons, and creating performance-enhancing drugs and vaccinations are possible. Also, exceptions to this rule are machines and technology that appear in the Pokémon games and anime. However, creating technology that doesn’t exist in either real life or the games/anime, such as plasma rifles, Gundam mobile suits, and spacecraft are not possible.
(The much shorter version, just to get an idea of what’s going on)
Based on real life disasters gone even worse, the Pokémon World finds itself in economic shambles, with a ruined economy, massive job loss, mutilated stock markets, politicians selling their seats of power for cold hard cash, and serious political lobbying and scandals. Sinnoh seemed to be the only region that was somehow thriving in the global economic meltdown, and when Hoenn and the Orange Islands requested Sinnoh’s aid, they were turned down.
However, Sinnoh had problems of their own. Something went wrong with natural Pokémon evolution on Sinnoh’s areas, and in order to fix the problem, a company called SavisTech had created the Compulsory Development Pokémon Agent (CDPA), an agent made to help promote natural Pokémon evolution. However, a freak accident occurred, and Sinnoh quickly found out CDPA worked on humans as well, turning them into half human, half Pokémon hybrids (they’re back. :D). Sinnoh’s government, realizing SavisTech relied on Hoenn and the Orange Islands for supplies for CDPA, believed they contaminated the CDPA as revenge for refusing to provide financial aid. As a retaliation strike, Sinnoh targeted both of them with Task Subjugate missiles, killing hundreds of thousands and turning the rest of their populations into infected zombies.
In a world gone totally awry, now it is only the teams that have the money… the legal tender that everyone else is dying for. Whether they got that money through donations or scandals doesn’t matter to most. Where the governments have epically failed, the teams will succeed, but the real question is which ones?
In this RP, you can RP as either human or Hybrid. Yes, I’m making it legal that you can RP as a mutated zombie, but you’d have to be really good at RPing an extremely stupid character ( “Scott came, ugly face so I killed him… tasty” kind of stupid). Sorry… but that’s why I don’t recommend it. Also, people that start as humans can be faced with becoming a Hybrid later on.
Teams will have control of a region, as long as its not Hoenn or the Orange Islands. Kanto, Johto, Orre, Sevii Islands, Fiore, Almia, and Sinnoh (your team would have to be all Hybrids if Sinnoh) are fair game.
There is also a new Heaven and Hell, but this time, they’re called Murhe (The dark afterlife for evil characters) and Sovinto (The bright afterlife for good characters). And yes, I made maps! Needless to say, this is mostly for something original, and to avoid real-life religious conflicts. That dandy stuff.
Instead of Crystals or Orbs (The orbs are REALLY old school by now), there are ancient implants that latch themselves onto a part of the body, and bestow unique powers. But as an added depth, you can’t take them into the afterlife with you, so someone could steal them by killing your character! So kill ‘em and get ‘em back!
Super NPCS, as well as TAG skills are back. No SPECIAL though. That’s surprisingly useless, as time has proven.
TEAM JOINING TEAM RP VI
I’m fine with any team joining Team RP VI (even the zany WAR 2x(3 2/3 ones), but keep in mind the RP itself is more serious-based. No extreme randomness or zaniness here, please…
And here’s the sign up. Also, each team should have at least five members. It doesn’t matter if they’re not all RPing.
(What your posse call themselves)
(Good or evil, you know the drill! No neutral though. Please… there’s no point to it. Those D&D alignments also work well, and I know them by heart).
(Just a few sentences of team details. Goals, team themes, that kind of thing would be really good to put here).
NEWLY ADDEDYour Team's Starting Region:
Yeah, I missed this little detail. Just let me know.
Your Team Members:
Just list who is on your team, including yourself.
Also, if your team is going to be taking part in Team RP VI, put “[Team RP IV]” in the thread’s title, that way I can tell which teams will be in this, and which ones won’t be.
That’s all. I’m fine with this being both a discussion thread and a team sign up thread, so fire away.
Once I have four teams, the sign up thread will be posted.
