Character Bio TemplateAppearance
All characters must use this bio template. Please keep in mind that it costs 5,000 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've made sure to read through everything here.
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 and Poké Ball Pattern/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 romaji aka the letters used in English. We also advise that you not use a name that another active character is using, just to avoid confusion.Gender
What gender is your character?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
Everyone's character has to start out at Level 5 or lower. Although starting at a level less than 5 is permitted, we do not recommend it as your characters level is directly tied to their energy which will allow them to access dungeons on the site.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. When determining what moves to give your pokemon, refer to the most recent generation your pokemon is available in if that generation is not prohibited on the site. You will see anote at the top if there are any. Do not use Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee movesets.
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 must 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;
We will not accept any other sources for natural feats other than the in-game pokedex entries for each pokemon species. This means that the anime and manga are both not viable sources for natural feats.Relatives
A list of relatives relevant to your character who may come up in threads. Example: Mother, father, brother, sister, cousin. If any of your relatives are other characters on the site, you must include a link to the bio. You should not be RPing an NPC parent unless they are approved in their original bio.
Note that you can take your character's parents into account when choosing your character's egg move, or vice versa. Unlike the games, your character's species does not need to specifically match the mother's species, as long as one of the parents is a member of the same evolutionary line as your character.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 be sure to check that you are not contradicting yourself. Keep in mind your character's history when writing about their personality. For example, someone who has been bullied their whole life is not likely to be social and outgoing around strangers. Of course there are exceptions as long as you can justify why they are the way they are.Likes
What does your character like? Try to explain each one that you list. We advise you to try to avoid obvious things like friends unless it is especially relevant to your character. Please make sure to have at least 3 likes.Disikes
What does your character dislike? Try to explain each dislike that you list. We advise you to try and avoid obvious things like getting bullied, unless it especially relevant to your character. 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. Your backstory does not have to be especially exciting, but use it to tell us a little about their life previous to when you start RPing them, and what might have happened to make them the way they are today. Please 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

(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.)
