PostSubject: Character Bio Template   Fri Aug 03, 2012 6:22 am

Character Bio Template

All characters must use this bio template. Please keep in mind that it costs 5000 Poké to create a character and 10000 Poké for a shiny, albino or melanistic character. Posting a character bio will substract 5000 poké from you immediately so make sure you have that much or else you will get a strike.

Please copy the CYAN text at the bottom of this post, after you made sure to read the points here.

____________________________________

Appearance
Your character cannot be a different colour. This means no extra spots or stripes, no odd coloured fur; not even your character's eyes can be different from the official artwork, unless they are shiny.

It is possible to make an application for shiny, albinistic or melanistic characters. These cost more than normal colored Pokemon though. If you decide on either melanistic or albino characters, please make sure to look into these disorders.

Other appearance differences such as Spiky-Eared Pichu along with Poké Ball Pattern and Fancy Pattern Vivillion cost the same amount of poké as a shiny and so will not be available as a first character for new members.


Name
Your character's name can be from any language as long as it is written in romanji aka the letters used in English. Rose and Arpeggio, being the names for the two dratini mascots, cannot be used. Also try to make sure the name is not used by another character.


Sex
The biological gender. What is your Pokemon born as?


Species
What Pokemon are you using? Make sure to include the dex number and the species title.
Example: #133 Eevee - the evolution pokemon

You cannot use legendaries or evolved Pokemon. In case of Pokemon with baby forms, you have to use the baby forms. Be sure to check the Banned Pokémon thread for character species that cannot be created at this very moment.

Exception: In case one needs an item to evolve, you can start with an evolved Pokemon if you provide the item needed.


Affiliation
Is your character part of a group or are they just travelers or wandering around? Are they a shopkeepers are they part of one of the independent organizations? Maybe your character dreams of joining the guild?

You can't start out as a guild member but you can apply to one once your character is created. If interested, there are various independent organizations you could join. For more information on them, go here.


Level
Everyone's character has to start out at Level 5 or lower.


Energy
Have you calculated your characters energy stat? You can find how to do that in this thread. If you are unsure about how this works, feel free to ask one of the staff members.


Abilities
What ability does your character have? You can chose normal abilities or dream world abilities.

Some abilities, like pickup, can have some kind of special effects in dungeons, outside of battle. There is a list of those abilities here. If your ability is not on the list and you think it might have some special effect, feel free to contact one of the staff members.


Moveset
A character starts with 4 move slots and any move it can learn naturally till its current level. You are also allowed to have your character start with 1 egg move. We will be using the gen 6 movesets from ORAS for now until the site is ready to accept gen 7 characters.

There are various ways to learn TM's and tutor moves across the site, but you cannot start with one of those. It is also possible to purchase 2 more move slots for each character. It is 800 poke per move slot.


Natural Feats
For this field you should go through the official pokedex entries for your character's species and learn about what they may be capable of as a species. You must add each natural feat separately and describe how it works in detail so that mods can approve it and both you and the mod are sure that it won't be used in a way that would be classed as god modding. Feats gained from the Ability you select for your character should also be added here.

Note: There is a list of natural feats located here. See if there are already feats for your character listed here. It is possible some are missing, so it is still advised to look into the dex entries.

Relatives
A list of relatives starting from the higher up in the family tree to lowest. Example: Mother, father, brother, sister, cousin. You must include a link to the bio of each relative you list here.

Personality
A minimum of a paragraph on what characteristics and qualities make your character unique. What are they like? How do they come across as to other Pokemon? Make sure it isn't too bare and to not contradict yourself. Also try to make it line up with history. Someone who has been bullied their whole life will not be likely to be social and outgoing around strangers.


Likes
What does your character like? Try to explain every single one of them and try to avoid obvious things like friends. Please make sure to have at least 3 likes.


Disikes
What does your character dislike? Try to explain every single one of them and try to avoid obvious things like getting bullied. Please make sure to have at least 3 dislikes.


History
What has happened to your character before the current time in the RP? At least a short paragraph should be written of where your character was brought up and how they got to where you will start in the rp. Note that a character is not allowed to be orphaned unless there is a good reason for it. For example if they saw their parents be killed and made it their goal to avenge them.

Your character's history also has to make sense both in context of itself and the site as a whole. For example, humans do not exist so including them would not make sense. Your character's history also cannot have any interactions with legendary Pokemon and it is not permitted to have a history with another person's character unless you have their express permission.


Other
Here comes everything that does not belong in the other sections. For example, health conditions or an item they are wearing. (Items should not have any kind of effect, nor should they be too complex or overly sophisticated.)



» Name: (What is the name of your character?)
» Sex: (Is that character male, female or agender biologically?
» Species: (What Pokemon are they? Include national Pokedex number as well as species name.)
» Affiliation: (What group are they a part of?  a shopkeeper? a wanderer? You could also join an Independent Organization. For more information go here)

» Energy: (Have you calculated your characters energy stat? You can find how to do that here)

» Moves: (What is your character's moveset?)

- (Move 2 - Level Acquired)
- (Move 3 - Level Acquired)

» Natural Feats: (For this field you should go through the official pokedex entries for your character's species and learn about what they may be capable of as a species.  E.g Ralts as a species is able to sense the emotions of others. You must add each natural feat separately and describe how it works in detail so that mods can approve it and both you and the mod are sure that it won't be used in a way that would be classed as god modding. Feats gained from the Ability you select for your character should also be added here.) (Note: Check what species have natural feats, as your character's may already be done, unless its specific ability isn't. If so, simply copy/paste the natural feat on the list and mention that you got it from there.)

» Personality: (A paragraph on what characteristics and qualities make your character unique. What are they like? How do they come across as to other Pokemon?)

» Likes: (What does your character like? List and explain. Avoid Captain Obvious answers, such as Friends or Helping Others. We're pretty sure everyone likes that unless your character is an odd one and has something noteworthy of why they like it or in what way. You need at least 3 likes.)

» Dislikes: (What does your character dislike? List and explain. Avoid Captain Obvious answers, such as getting hurt, bullies, or people that hurt their friends. We're pretty sure everyone dislikes that unless your character is an odd one and has something noteworthy of why they dislike it or in what way. You need at least 3 dislikes.)

» History: (What has happened to your character before the current time in the RP? At least a short paragraph should be written of where your character was brought up and how they got to where you will start in the rp.

» Other:(Anything else we should know about your character?)


Note: You can find a more detailed explanation on everything in the rules. It is also not allowed to post in the bio of someone else. Only the owner and secretaries are allowed to do so. -->
