In The Hospital Lobby [
Posted on September 15, 2006 @ 8:27 pm

Musashi didn't care what Kasumi thought.

The former Rocket stared at her knees. She had clasped her hands together and rested them in her lap in an uncharacteristically ladylike fashion, bouncing her knees up and down impatiently while waiting for any news on the Cerulean gym resident's condition.

It wasn't as though she was worried that she wouldn't pull through. At least, not for any redeemable reasons. She still found the brat to be as annoying as she remembered--always jumping to conclusions about things, always being overdramatic (don't you dare say a thing about being the pot or the kettle...). She doubted highly that she had grown up at all. Not from the impression she was given just a few hours ago.

But there had to be a reason that Kasumi was accusing her of being involved with Rocket Dan still. The chances were slim, but maybe Kasumi was her key to finding any leads to the whereabouts of her good-for-nothing former colleagues.

A pang of doubt cut through her thoughts. Why should she care, anyway? So if Kasumi knew something, what then? What was she going to do? S'not like she could seriously consider taking on a huge corporation. And Rocket Dan was even bigger than she remembered it.

She pushed those thoughts to the back of her mind. But she had made Rocket Dan her life for...for at least five years. She knew some things would never change...and surely some of their key weaknesses were still there.

One thing at a time, Musashi. She told herself, and looked up to the receptionist desk, which had been bleakly vacant for the past hour and a half. This place was so understaffed, even with assistant pokemon coming to the medics' aid, the tournament which was massacred today had a larger-than-expected turn-out, and the victim count was high.

It was a Rocket's dream. Surely Boss would be rewarding whoever pulled this stunt off.

She shook her head, and leaned back in her seat, heaving a sigh. Why am I still thinking like that? He wasn't "Boss" anymore. "That Bastard" is more like it.

She got the attention of an older woman sitting next to her as she heaved another sigh. The old lady leaned over slightly, and Musashi noticed she was eyeing the pokeballs peeking out of her dirty duffelbag.

"You got out of it lucky, didn't you dearie?" The woman smiled sadly, "Poor things...how fortunate that they survived."

Musashi blinked. Rather than telling the old hag to bugger off, she responded in a quiet hush. "There were fatalities?"

"All I know of are several pokemon. I haven't heard of any casualties with the trainers. They are still searching for bodies." The woman stared down at her purse.

Musashi "tsk"-ed and folded her arms over her chest, swinging one leg over her other knee. Well, that's just perfect. She felt the inevitable envy lighten at those words. Then the mission wasn't a complete success. Everyone knows that you're suppoed to snatch up whatever pokemon you can. Killing them is definitely a dent in your track record.

The woman noticed Musashi's freshly glossed lips curl to a slight smile, which she returned. "Yes, sweetie. You should be grateful you were spared the trouble."

Musashi nodded, not quite listening any more. Then the person who did this was obviously not one of the elite. At least, not yet. That narrows it down. Her mind was going full-speed again at the possibilities. She should go back to the site and scour for clues.

((tag Kasumi and anyone else at the hospital!))

Sea Sick? See Rocket! [
Posted on September 15, 2006 @ 2:32 am
"Ugg..." A bright and sunny day was ahead of the small sea vessel as it made its way into the docks at Vermilion City. It calmly pitched and swayed in the waters as the hint of a light breeze was pressing towards the shore. Standing near the front of the boat was the ships captain, a deck hand, and a loan passenger. As the boat seemed to come to a seamless stop alongside the dock, a horrible sound came from the passenger of the boat. "Ugg...gg...!!!" The captain lightly smiled lightly as the passenger seemed to keep himself hoisted slightly over the boats side.

“Well then. You knew the risks for making the trip out here. After the recent events I’m a bit surprised you still insisted in coming.” The Captain motioned for the Deck Hand to assist the Passenger off the boat and on to the dock. “Now if you don’t mind my rudeness in this deal, but we must be off on our way before the Rockets try to pull anything over my boat.” With that the Boat seemed to pull away from the dock at an accelerated pace as the Passenger was still left somewhat ill form his trip yet still plopped right smack in the middle of the dock.

Slowly the passenger got him self back on his feet and after a small wave came rushing up and lapping at the dock, he scampered quickly on to dry land and released a heavy sigh. “Leave it to friends to pick a boat like that to be a ‘Wonderful Trip that won’t make you Sea Sick’ and well… Uggg” Quickly he managed to pull himself to the waters edge as he once again heaved his already depleted lunch into the sea.

Again he attempted to compose himself and checked over what little he brought with him. His hands quickly ran over the edges of his backpack as 3 Pokeballs were attached to the sides, Inside the pack was a laptop that he knew was there without having to open the pack up, and last but not least a small device he was given as a “Safe Trip” gift. It looked like one of those little digital pet games but with a slightly bigger screen and a small set of buttons that could be used as a makeshift keyboard. He attached the small Fame Checker to his pack and started on his way into the heart of Vermilion City.

((OOC: I was talkign with SFR in a game and she gave me permission to start off at the Dock area of Vermilion City. Let's see who might run into Andrew now. XD))

Another Quick Modly Update [
Posted on September 10, 2006 @ 3:39 pm

OOC community has been made... finally. pokemonrpgooc. All OOC posts will be deleted from this comm and will be posted here. From here on out, this community will ONLY be for IC stuff. Right now the membership is open, so join up as soon as you can!

As stated before, try to join threads already active. If you can't fit anywhere, or if a scene looks to have ended and moved on, feel free to post on your own. It really doesn't matter: its just to save clutter, or to try to anyway.

And now... Rockets! With Domino's departure we are seriously short on the Rocket side. So, to anyone here who was considering making a Rocket, I'm giving you guys a quick way to get started. I'm letting you forgo the application process, because obviously if you're posting here that means I like how you RP and trust in your l33t skillz.. However! Before you create a journal you must IM me and discuss with me just basics on where the character came from, personality, etc. just so I know who you're playing and can get an idea. If you want a main character Rocket, I might make the interview a little more 'intense' with an RP session or something. My IM will be going up in the locked contact list for this group, or get my attention by posting to this message.

Also, I'll be formulating a points system, where if you RP a lot or bring members you'll get points that you can 'spend' ICly, such as on TMs, new Pokemon, or leveling up. I'm going to work that out with Satoshi-kun next time I catch his player online.

Remember, friend and join the OOC comm! I'll be adding some more posts eventually, such as rules on Team Rocket and update the taken list.. once I get home from work.

Quick Mod Update [
Posted on September 10, 2006 @ 7:53 am

I meant to post this a few days back but haven't had time with school and everything.

The RP is officially underway once more, with two new characters joining our ranks! Welcome Andrew and Toby! (pkmnrpg_andrew and orenji_toby)

Unfortunately, Domino has formally quit the board due to insufficient time. :( She will be missed, but the show must go on.

Oh, and one small thing: try to reply to other people's threads, and not go off and make your own. It saves on people having to scroll down on overly cluttered friend's list. Tagging people helps! Thanks everyone, you're all awesome. :D

I will update as Koji and Kasumi later. Take care everyone!

Firstly, much thanks to Satoshi for the wonderful new layouts. <3! They are truly beautiful but do not overshadow that which is my bike, which you still owe me jerk D:< Ahem. So, with the first of the month, I am here to harass you all about restarting the RP. I have a had a very hectic summer, as I have said before, but with school starting I will actually have days off *long story* and will have time to RP again.

Moving along, I am making this public because I want everyone to check in again. Mainly, I want to see if Musashi and Domino still want to play. They were really awesome players and I hope they decide to stick around. ;_; If you guys don't reply by Tuesday, I'm going to assume you guys don't want to play anymore.

Secondly, we're opening it up to OCs. Meaning I will be encouraging OCs to apply, because having an RP with just mains isn't cutting it. :x So feel free to apply for an original character, just try to have them on a different side than you to encourage more role play. ^_^

Thirdly, advertise! Promote! Some people have come to the comm saying they'd send in an application and yet never did! We need attention people! More people coming to RP would mean more RP for us to have!

Let's go, people! I can't wait to start again~!

OOC: Bad Mod! [
Posted on August 02, 2006 @ 2:01 pm

Major apologies everyone. D: My summer had been taken over by my job, who decided to add more hours (tripled them, in fact), leaving me little to no time to catch up on my RPs. I'm going to a con this weekend, so I won't be back until Tuesday. However, if you are still interested in this RP PLEASE go back and read the threads you were part of. I know Domino was to respond to something in the RP and hasn't yet. Satoshi needs to post as well, but his player will be at the same con I'm going to.

Just drop me a comment too to let me know if you're still into playing here. ^^

Thanks, and apologies again.

And the winner is!! [
Posted on May 26, 2006 @ 12:24 am

Time went on almost endlessly to many in the audience, but not one complained. The last battle playing out before them was hardly letting up on either side. In fact, the more time passed the more heated the two pokemon and their trainers became. At this very moment, the suspense was at it's best! Every man, woman, and child in the stadium were at the edge of their seat. It finally seemed that the bitter end was going to come crashing down on one team...

Satoshi's feet were planted firmly on the very ground he stood watching from the sides as Pikachu barely dodged out of a devastating attack that came close to knocking him out. The small rodent panted heavily, it's body having taken it's fair share of beatings. Despite that, the look in it's coal eyes showed no sign of giving in. Not yet. Not when they were so close. A grin broke the tense frown that had been planted on Satoshi's face through the fight.

"Pikachu..." he murmured proudly, taking this second to show just how appreciative he was to his best friend. His eyes ventured to gaze upong Wataru's partner. This only gave him more reason to smile. This was it. Whoever's next attack connected... would be the winner.

There wasn't anytime left to draw this out any futher and Wataru had already begun to speak out an attack, fully aware of the end of this battle. Almost breaking in over his oppenents voice, the young man took a deep breath in and shouted with all his might.

"Pikachu! Give it your all!!"

His ears perked, body charging once more as it dashed straight on--

"This is it folks!" The announcer put his two cents in and fell silent, gripping the mic.

OOC: Absence [
Posted on April 20, 2006 @ 11:59 pm

I know I said I'd post by tonight.

I lied. ._. I'm sorry. I had a very stressful day with my exam and stuff that I was kinda off brain wise to do anything other than.. well.. nothing. If I am productive with the projects I am on, I will definately post during a break, but school comes first and these things are significant chunks of my final grade.

I apologize immensely and just beg you all to hang in for me a little while longer.

OOC: Contact Info? [
Posted on April 05, 2006 @ 12:17 am

I was wondering if we were ever going to exchange messenger ID's so we can chat OOC'ly with our other players? Or can we have an OOC discussion community?

Just a thought. I don't know when Musashi will actually get into contact with a character--hopefully sooner rather than later--but I would like to chat with some of you in the rare occassion that our waking hours cross somehow.

Update! [
Posted on April 01, 2006 @ 9:27 am

We are almost ready to get started guys! :D

First of all, promote! Feel free to whore out this RPG as much as you'd like. Thanks to our awesome co-mod, we now have a banner to go with promoting. Put it in your character's journals, regular journals, communities, whatever. Go nuts! (Linking a link to a picture can be found in the LJ FAQ)

Also: we have most of the main characters applied for, but I would really like to see a Shigeru! He has a major role in the plot (as most of the mains do) and would be really cool to see involved! The colored characters (the ones from the games, etc. Silver, Gold, Crystal, etc, but with Japanese names) are also available for application. As time passes I will see where they will fit, because I don't like RPs getting too big. ^^

Finally, the (almost official) storyline will be posted TODAY, so the RP can start anytime after that. HOWEVER, the storyline will ONLY BE POSTED AS FRIENDS ONLY, so if you haven't clicked on JOIN COMMUNITY and YOU WERE APPROVED FOR MAKING A CHARACTER JOURNAL CLICK NOW OR ELSE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE THE STORYLINE OR START THE ROLEPLAY!

It should be posted after I get out of work the latest, but definately before the evening. Stay tuned!
