    The Premise
    You and your friends are just about ready to graduate from the Melemele Trainer’s Academy. Final exams are finishing up and there’s only one thing on some of your minds: The Island Challenge. Trainers traditionally go through the four islands, completing each trial that awaits, though rumor has it that Professor Kukui has a new twist in store for trainers. What could it be? He’s hinted at it in class, but you’ll have to beat the Kahunas to find out.

    As you go through your journey, you start to notice something unusual. Its as if the islands are dying. The plant life is slowly drooping and the water quality isn’t so great anymore. Ultra Beasts are starting to become a frequent problem also. Something’s not right. On top of completing your island challenge, you will find yourselves in the midst of this national crisis, but there is hope! You just need to find it.

    Rules
    -All Bulbagarden forum rules apply.
    -No godmodding or powerplay.
    -Please treat all members involved in the roleplay with respect and fairness.

    Player’s Notes
    -Yes, this is more of a traditional Pokemon journey roleplay.
    -This roleplay will be played over Discord in the Bulbagarden RP Discord.
    -If anyone wishes to be a co-gm and help me plot things out, I’m open to it.
    -Totem battles will be fought as a group to speed things up just a bit. They will be VERY powerful, and in this case, the Trial Captains will allow you to team up to balance things up a little bit.
    -Kahuna battles can go one of three ways. If you wish to have a GM play the Kahuna, we can go back and forth for the battle. If you wish to write out the full battle yourself, that is also an option. If you wanna do double or triple battles even, ala Olivia in the anime, that is also an option.
    -Because I want to keep it small, only three spots are open.

    Question: Is the starter limited to the Alola Pokédex, or can it be anything within reason (i.e. no legendaries or mythicals)?

    Name: Yoohyeon Kim
    Gender: Female
    Age: 19
    Hometown: Malie City

    Appearance: Yoohyeon stands at 5'7", but her long limbs make her seem taller than she actually is. Her hair is long enough to reach past her shoulders and is dyed a faded silver. Yoohyeon tends to dress in a tomboyish fashion on a day to day basis, as her typical outfit is some combination of flannels and jeans, though she doesn't oppose to more feminine clothing on occasion.

    Personality: Yoohyeon generally gives off an intimidating aura, as well as the impression of being cold and aloof (given that she tends to have a bit of a resting bitch face), but she's more shy and introverted than anything. Though it's technically true that Yoohyeon is an absolute bookworm and would rather read a book than have a conversation with other people, she doesn't dislike people in general. She just happens to be afraid of big crowds. She's known to be a bit of a worrywart and gets stressed easier than others, but she isn't the type of person to have a temper or get angry. In fact, Yoohyeon would be more likely to cry - not that she'd let other people see, of course. It should be noted that she isn't an assertive person whatsoever and hates direct confrontation.

    History: The basics are that Yoohyeon lived primarily by herself in the Johto region prior to moving to Alola, and moved to Malie City under the pretense of starting a new life there - the reasons as to why, however, remain to be seen. She presumably, however, wants to familiarize herself with the islands, and an Island Trial is arguably the best way to do so.

    Name: R3negade X
    Gender: Male
    Age: 16
    Hometown: Poni Village

    Appearance:
    He is 5'9", and usually dresses in casual short-sleeved shirts and pants. He wears a cape that has an ammo belt for Pokeballs because he thinks it looks cool. He is white with a good tan, short, brown hair, and always wears a black fedora.

    Personality:
    He is friendly, often quick to form bonds, especially with pokemon. He has a special place in his heart for his best friends and his pokemon, but his pokemon come first. He does feel the need to try and look as cool as possible, hence the cape and the l33t lingo name that he insists everyone call him by. He lives for the thrill of adventure and battle, and can be as cunning as he is reckless, often overestimating both himself and his friends. He also has a strong sense of justice; not so much that he's unwilling to do naughty things, but actions that endanger the lives of many or hurt people personally warrant his attention and vengeance. He especially does not like abuse, and believes that such actions deserve to be repaid tenfold.

    History:
    R3negade X grew up in the Poni Village, but dreamed of adventure beyond his boring island. He encountered a traveling trainer who was giving away Hoenn Starters, and he took home a Torchic, much to his parents dismay. They insisted that the life of a trainer was nothing but trouble and hardship, and wanted him to grow up a humble fisher, but he had bigger ambitions, and ran away from home to start his journey.
