    Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, Alola. Legend, Night, Day, Whirl, Tower. Many teams exist that are infamous. Due to this many young pokemon wish to be explorers. Rescuers who help those in need. But the job is dangerous, not everyone can do it, and that is why academies were created. Academies to teach the young pokemon, and see if they have the ability to become explorers. And the worst of these academies is A.D.L.A.D. Short for Academy Dedicated to Learning About Dungeons. The school is home to misfits, and the teachers are said to be the worst. It is nothing compared to Greenwest Academy, who produces some of the finest and best explorers ever seen.

    But you're not going to Greenwest. You're here at A.D.L.A.D. So welcome. We don't care if you were rejected by Greenwest, or Royal, or anything. We don't care if you came here just because you're bored. We'll do our best to teach you. So welcome to our school.

    Plot: Another PMD RP. Except you are not part of a team. You are part of an academy that will teach you how to be explorers, in basically the worst ways considered possible... supposedly. There is more than meets the eye here. And you as a young pokemon must work to help others as an explorer, as well as unravel mysteries about the world around you.

    Rules
    -BMG rules of course
    -It's PMD so it really shouldn't naturally go past PG but make sure to keep it at least PG-13
    -Respect fellow RPers.
    -Godmodding, bunnying, etc. The usual is banned.
    -Listen to the GM.
    -Humans do not exist. At all.
    -Have fun!

    Name:
    Species:
    Must be first or single stage pokemon. No legendaries.
    Gender:
    Ability:
    Unique Attributes:
    Are they differently colored? Wear something? Have marks?
    Personality:
    History:
    Other:

    My character
    Name: Luxa
    Species: Rockruff
    Gender: Female

    Ability: Own Tempo
    Unique Attributes: The center rock on her neck is cracked, looking like a mix between a sun and moon.
    Personality: Twilight is not super outspoken or super quiet. She speaks when she feels it is necessary, but also listens to others. She always feels like she's in the middle, and while not a complete follower, she is not an automatic leader either. She does however try to avoid conflict and will usually back down if she feels threatened. She is usually one of the first to volunteer, if not out of obligation and just to be nice, unless it is something she feels others will want to do, then she will remain quiet.
    History: Luxa grew up in a normal family with normal parents. Her life was pretty average. At least until one day when an accident happened in her village. A large forest fire. Many pokemon were dying, losing their lives, and running trying to survive. She who had never felt something truly exciting, anything that truly made her heart beat, was amazed. Amazed as pokemon, explorers rescued the pokemon, fighting the fire, and saving many. She chose to go to ADLAD because there were basically no requirements, and because it was the only school that would accept her.

    Unless you say decide to go with a Pikachu correct? Because if Im correct Pikachu is an option in every mystery dungeon game.Could you be a human transformed into a Pokemon like how the mystery dungeon games always have your character be?

    No humans. And no to pikachu. The characters are supposed to be young and with the exception of single stage, evolution will be part of growing up. So if someone chooses pichu then eventually they can evolve into pikachu once their character has matured.

    Name: Miles
    Species: Buizel
    Gender: Male
    Ability: Swift Swim
    Unique Attributes: Rather scruffy looking, his fur's not dirty or anything, it's just something it does.
    Personality: Miles is somewhat naive to the world, and rather excitable to boot. He truly does want to help people, but tends to get ahead of himself a bit and can easily get himself into trouble.
    History: Since he was little, Miles has dreamed of becoming an explorer. Heading bravely into dangerous locations to help Pokemon in need. So predictably he was somewhat disappointed when it turned out he had no chance of paying for the more prestigious schools. It was around then that he learned about A.D.L.A.D. Sure, everybody say it's terrible, but it can't be that bad right?
    Other: Surprisingly competent at guessing games.

    Name: Plecc
    Species: Cyndaquil
    Gender: Male
    Ability: Flash Fire (If HAs are allowed.)
    Unique Attributes: Plecc has a small star shaped birthmark on his forehead. When his back fire is hot, it will glow light orange.
    Personality: Plecc, although not an introvert, does not care much for talking with others. This is because he is very fearful, and often worries about saying the wrong thing and offending someone. Despite this, he is known to be very levelheaded for his young age, thinking things through before rushing into them. This can be either beneficial or harmful, as there are occasions in which risks must be taken and there is no time for thought.
    History: Plecc's childhood is rather troubled. At birth, his parents split, and thus he never knew his mother. His father raised him for a while. This was until he fell into hard times financially after losing a job. Despite his financial position, Plecc's father never gave up and finally scrapped together enough money to get him even the simplest of educations at A.D.L.A.D.
    Other: Has a fascination with aviation.

    Name: Luke
    Species: Mudkip
    Gender: Male
    Ability: Torrent
    Unique Attributes: Luke's back fin shines for seemingly no reason at all.
    Personality: Luke likes to be by himself most of the time. He works more when he's independent, but likes to talk to others in a group. He gets easily sidetracked and can't focus if there's noise. He is very smart, with an above-average IQ for his age. He has a hard time speaking to Pokemon and sometimes slurs his words or speaks softly.
    History: When Luke was young in Hoenn, he lived in a nice river with everything they needed to survive. Food, water, and family. One night, during a hike, Luke got seperated from the pack. He swam and swam in the sea to find them. When he got to land, he felt discouraged. He thought that no one was going to support him or train him anymore. He found ADLAD out of desperation, and they gave him a scholarship due to his high IQ.
    Other: Is very knowledgeable about computers. He is starting to form his ground type, so electricity dosen't affect him in small currents (e.g. touching computers). Also has a fascination with commercial aviation.

    Name: Natalia
    Species: Absol
    Gender: Female
    Ability: Pressure
    Unique Attributes: Her head fur is rather long and covers one of her eyes, and she has a silver chain with a blue star-shaped jewel dangling from the base of her scythe. The jewel is the symbol of her clan.

    Personality: Although being rather young (being roughly equivalent to a teenager), she acts more mature than one would expect for her age. Natalia doesn't display much emotion for mundane matters, acting rather cold and dismissive. She's all business. Although she also tends to be somewhat impatient, being extremely focused on a single goal and preferring to accomplish it with as little nonsense as possible. If something gets in the way of her goal for too long, she will become annoyed rather quickly, and express herself with surprising fury. However, she also has a soft spot for young mammalian Pokemon, as they remind her of her brother. When interacting with them, she tends to act motherly and caring, expressing a soft side to her, as well as becoming immensely protective.

    History: Much of her life has been somewhat brutal and relentless, due to the harsh mountain environment and philosophy which Absol clans must adapt. She never knew her parents, as her father was killed in a territorial dispute with another clan, and her mother was taken away by that clan's patriarch. Only she and a single sibling were left to survive, as she took responsibility for her younger brother (Yuri) and was forced to act as caretaker at an early age. One day, her little brother went missing whilst they were attempting to explore a dungeon, and she got severely injured in the process. Unable to properly explore dungeons herself, she attempted to enroll into Greenwest, but was rejected due to... well, not really being a team player. So instead, she enrolled into A.D.L.A.D. with the specific goal to rescue him one day. Natalia doesn't really care if it's said to be terrible, as long as she's able to get the job done.

    Other: When fighting, she becomes feral and bestial, and isn't really able to hold herself back too well. This may end up with the opponent or herself sustaining serious injuries.

    @Lone_Garurumon Horrible app! Accepted.
    @NuclearBronco Is he part bagon? Accepted.
    @Arylett Charnoa Clearly Greenwest didn't give her a proper team. Accepted!

    @Arbirchy There are no humans in the world. Not even in alternate worlds. I mentioned no humans to Robert Ketchum, but I didn't put it in the opening, so sorry about that confusion. Please edit out anything human related.

    Aww dammit~

    Uh... Sorry. What I meant to say was how can I make an interesting story out of Luke as he is now? :) I'll think it over. Is seperated from the pack better? (If you let me keep Brendan, I promise I won't bring him into this world at all, and he'll keep it a secret)

    Name: Lucia
    Species: Mawile
    Gender: Female
    Ability: Hyper Cutter
    Unique Attributes: The teeth on her second set of jaws are smaller than an average Mawile's, she tends to wear a dark blue bow around her neck.

    Personality: Lucia loves being around other Pokémon, and loves talking, to the point of sometimes being annoying. She can be ditzy, obsessive, and impulsive as well, but she has a genuine desire to explore the world and help any Pokémon who needs it. Lucia tries to stay optimistic when things get bad, and will try to cheer up any Pokémon that she feels needs it.

    History: At a young age, Lucia met a group of explorers who stopped by her hometown for rest and supplies, and after getting to know them, they let her tag along on one of their (easier) adventures, with that, she knew that she had found her calling. By working various odd jobs over time and being extremely frugal, Lucia was able to save up enough to study at a decent academy. Despite not exactly being Greenwest, it was more than enough.
    But Lucia was not prepared for the classes to be as difficult as they were, and despite her best efforts, she was quickly dismissed. Not being one to give up, she sought to continue her education regardless. But due to running low on funds, and her records not giving a good impression to other schools, her selection of schools ended up being limited to about one. Deciding that the school's reputation was likely exaggerated, she enrolled at A.D.L.A.D., hoping for a second chance.

    I'm still working on my sign-up, and it's almost done. I'm just having trouble putting the words to the rest of the history section's details. I know what I want to put, just not how to write it in a way that fits with the style already there. Here's what I have done:

    Name: Inferno
    Species: Chimchar
    Gender: male
    Ability: Iron Fist
    Unique Attributes: Inferno has blue eyes and produces blue flames instead of the usual orange. He also wears a white gi top with the symbol of his clan on the back (large) and front (small, left side of chest).
    Personality: Inferno is a kind, compassionate, and curious young Chimchar. He takes his training very seriously, occasionally bordering on obsession and has led to fights in the past. He is proud of both his skills and his heritage, and takes any seemingly-disparaging remark about either as an insult, leading to heated confrontations. While he does possess unshakable faith in his instruction from before he left home, Inferno constantly feels great frustration over his inability to master both Fire Punch and Thunder Punch. He, above all else, wishes to help other Pokémon and seeks education beyond that of his clan to do so more effectively.
    History: Inferno hails from the mountain home of Clan Goukazaru, home to scores of Chimchar, Monferno, and Infernape who all possess what the elders refer to as the "Power of the Iron Fist." Young Chimchar are tested using a secret method involving boulders and Focus Punch, revealing those with Blaze and those with Iron Fist. Inferno
    Other: Inferno is well-trained in his clan's unique and secret martial arts style, and can thus fight effectively without using traditional moves. He's also capable of using Focus Punch, and has learned how to use both Fire Punch and Thunder Punch, although the latter two only produce a brief flash of the intended element before reverting to a normal punch.

    The things I'm having trouble with are a thing called the "Prophecy of the Blue Flame," an old clan legend statimg that a Chimchar born with blue flames would go on to save the world (the only actual effect it would have relates solely to Inferno's character arc and has absolutely no bearing on anything else, and the only "evidence" of it being "true" is the sole fact that Inferno is a Chimchar born with blue flames), thus leading to more intense training for him; Inferno being stronger than other Chimchar of his age as a result of his training; and him being sent to A.D.L.A.D. to experience the supposed hardships the academy is infamous for as both the next step of his training and an extended test of character unknown to him.
