On the coast town of Sandgem, there lies a school for the training of future Pokemon professors. Founded and named after Professor Rowan of the Sinnoh region. Students to sixteen to eighteen years of age are selected from all over the world to spend four years at the university after taking a standardized test and are sent letters for when they’ve been chosen. Students are offered the best of many classes from many trained professional Pokemon researchers, and are able to research on site for some classes. More information will be given on the day of the opening assembly. Students dormitories are co-ed, but only two of the same gender may room together unless of special circumstances otherwise, or students may room solo. Student attendees must also wear provided uniforms when attending classes. Students are also allowed two of their Pokemon to brought with them for their studies, and students may be able to obtain more Pokemon partners through their studies. The journey begins. Rules: Please Read and Follow Accordingly. Standard Bulbagarden Forums and RP Section Rules apply as always. No Godmodding/Bunnying/ Auto-hitting. Inactivity for long periods of time will be punished unless there is contact with myself before this occurs. There will be an OOC Thread after the Start Up is made where you’ll be able to ask questions, propose ideas and discuss about this Role-Play. Remember to be nice to your fellow RPers, if anything gets out of hand I will be forced to bring a Moderator in. The GM words are law, and of course the Moderator’s law is higher. Some Character Rules cause I’m lame. I’ll limit you to two characters per player, unless special permission is granted. The uniform is a white button-up shirt with a black blazers or sweater vest featuring the school’s logo on the left breast pocket, a gold shield featuring the Lake Trio, as well matching pants and or an optional choice of skirt for females. Romance is fine, but don’t go past second base. If you wish to continue, please do it in PM’s. For Pokemon, obviously no Legendaries. But I’m also removing the choices of starters, fully evolved Pseudo-Legends and Eeveelutions. Try to be more unique with your choices. They may also be shiny if you wish, just remember to put it in the Sign Up post. Majors, I’m allowing you to choose anything that previous Pokemon Professors have studied(I.E. Evolutions, origins, etc.) and wild stuff like Shadow Pokemon and Ultra Beasts. The only thing I am excluding is the Battle Bond Phenomenon, since that is exclusive to one Pokemon, little explanation has been given about it and I’m more leaning to the games side of things than the anime outside of battling.
