The idea behind the RP: Ymora Region The Ymora Region is famous for its breeding program. All kinds of Pokémon are being bred and requested all over the world, including by the professors in other regions. Furthermore this region is the birthplace of the new LT-system as well as having the most powerful League. Ymora is located South from the Hoenn region and shares a similar climate when it comes to temperature. It’s warm through the entire year with a very hot summer and frequent rain showers in the winter. Snow can only be found on Snowpeak Mountain which is 24.681 feet high. Because the mountain stands alone people offer refer to it as ‘Lonely Mountain’ or ‘Fourth Brother’. It is located on the western part. The region is almost split in half by a mountain range; Boulder Hills. This range has 3 peeks so people called it The Three Brothers. Between these mountains is Valley Road; popular for being the safest passage from north to south and many vendors along the way. Valley City is located directly in the middle and is considered the heart of the region. Directly south of the Boulder Hills lies the Southern Forest; Ymora’s biggest forest and a part of it is under the Academy’s direct supervision. The south-east part of Ymora is famous for its natural hot springs. The waters are deep and it’s advised not to go swimming there. From the different havens tourist boats make a tour around the small islands. Under these islands is a gigantic underwater volcano that’s still active, causing steam and hot water. The volcano is connected to the natural hot springs on land. The main attraction in the northern part is Cape Ducklett; famous for its beautiful beaches. Many tourists come here to relax and to take the Safari Tour. This tour includes visiting the Safari Park; including a swamp area for certain Pokémon species and Hippowdon Reservoir; a small desert-like area where Pokémon live. History Timeline Licensed Trainer System The LT-system is based on professor Redwood’s paper to change the old system were 12-year olds started a journey. Now they can just go to Pre-Academy (non-mandatory) for three years. However in the year future trainers turn 15 and they still want to go on a journey, they have to follow a 3 year training program at the Academy. They learn everything about Pokémon, sportsmanship and economics. When a student graduates, he or she receives a unique Pokédex that contains the trainer license. It gives trainers the right to challenge gym leaders, participate in tournaments, contests and all other battle-related things involved Pokémon. Trainers will also receive free treatment in Pokécenters. With the system change, the gyms changed as well. Leaders have to meet certain quota to qualify as a gym leader. Right now there are 12 different gyms located through the entire region, under the supervision of the Leagues President (previous champion). Trainers have to beat 8 of them to earn the right to compete in the Ymora League. It works similar for coordinators. The amount of contests increased to 10 and they have to win at least 5 of them to enter the Grand Festival. And last but not least: Breeders that graduate receive an extra Breeding License. This shows their capability and helps them to start their own Breeding Facility or work in one. But what really made this system unique was a Pokémon Danger List. Professor Redwood included certain Pokémon that shouldn’t be trained by rookie trainers. These Pokémon include species that have a rather violent nature, pseudo-legendries and Dragons. Especially combined they’re shown to go berserk if not handled correctly. Academy Academy ground and buildings Academy Forest Available Pokémon / Evolutions / Moves / Battle Strength / Items & Training Ymora League After the results of the first Academy’s graduates, the Ymora League received a make-over. There’s a president (ex-champion) who keeps an eye on everything. Currently there are 12 gyms: Water, Fire, Ghost, Dark, Psychic, Fighting, Poison, Ground, Steel, Fairy, Flying and Bug. All leaders have to meet certain quota before they are given the position. Some are considered harder than others but a challenger only has to defeat 8 of them to compete in the League. Ice and Rock don’t have a suitable gym location or leader yet. Grass, Electric, Dragon and Normal teams are used by the E4 so they don’t have a gym either. Rise of Greadia (RoG: pronounced as Rock) Playable characters First year students! This mean you’ll be 15. (Or 14 if your PC’s birthday is after September 1st. Older 1st years need a reason) Keep in mind you can be from any region as Ymora Region’s Academy is pretty popular and has the best educational system. You can have one starter already at lvl 8 before Academy starts. And you can choose between the Programs. Young RoG agents! You're the same age as a first year student and have successfully infiltrated the Academy.
June 19, RoG HQ “SIR! I found something! Our systems detected a massive energy peak!” a young man in his early twenties yelled. “What are you talking about?” another man replied. This one was much older and much taller. His grey hair and moustache had a natural intimidating look, but his chubby appearance could easily be mistaken for muscled. Unfortunately for Doc, he was unable to close his lab coat. “The energy we found months ago in the Boulder Hills, but our teams were unable to locate it. A few moments ago our equipment tracked the exact same energy rating, Sir.” “Move,” Doc said while shoving the young member out of his chair. The Head of the Intel and Research Division started to type like he was possessed. In no time different sources of data and graphics popped up, spread out over at least 5 different monitors. The process kept repeating itself over and over until the man's eyes widened in surprise. Suddenly the main screen went black and a voice could be heard from the speakers. “Doc? Why did you call me so suddenly?” “I'm sorry, Boss, but this is important. We found the Dragon Plate!” “What? That's good news! Were our teams finally successfull?” “No, it seems someone beat us. We only found its new location.” “Where?” “Ymora Academy.” The voice on the other side turned silent. “Redwood...” the man hissed before bursting out into laughter. “Perfect! Tell me Doc, do we have some young prodigies for this mission?” Doc didn't reply. Instead his fingers moved over the keyboard in front of him at incredible speed. “These are all our members that have the required age and the ones we can alter a little,” he said as the black screen filled with multiple profiles. Another silence fell as profiles opened and closed. Some stayed longer and were moved to the background only to appear again a few seconds after. Doc wasn't doing anything so the man behind the screen was selecting the members personally. “These two,” he finally spoke up. “Muscles that do everything to get a mission done and a cunning brain... Don't alter their profiles and backgrounds too much this time. It's a long term mission so simplicity is key...” “Understood,” Doc said firmly when the monitor went silent. The scientist turned towards the man he had pulled out of the chair earlier. “You! Get me these two agents ASAP!” August 30, 9 AM, Academy Grounds The past couple of days had been busy for the Academy Staff. All preparations had led to this day. The entrance hall of the Main Building had undergone a gigantic transformation. Multiple desks were lined up in front of the left wall. All of them were equipped with monitors. Two giant wooden boards stood behind the desks. One, on the left, was titled 'Girls Dorm' while the one on the right was called 'Boys Dorm'. Two pair of keycards could be found under each number. The desks were currently occupied by teachers and Redwood's assistants. Some of them were already sighing or wrestling with the, to their taste, much too slow monitors. Others, like Devin Cadmus and Redwood, were standing at the front doors to guide new students in. Every year there were some new students running around with a lost expression on their faces, even though they received clear instructions in their invitation letter: Do not forget to bring your ID with you and make sure you register at one of the desks in the Main Building. You will receive your Official Trainer Card, Pokédex and Dorm Keycard from one of the staff. After this is done, all students are free to explore the Academy Grounds at free will. We do ask you not to enter the Forest as it can be dangerous for inexperienced students. Outside the building a path led straight from the entrance hall towards the Main Gates.Tyron was standing there, looking nervously at his watch. Redwood had given him clear orders; open the gate at 9 AM exactly, no matter how many people had already gathered. And like every year there were quite a few people lined up, waiting for Tyron to open the gate, which made the Handyman even more nervous. It got even to the point he started to count down the seconds on his watch. A big sigh could be heard from the tall and atlethic looking man. Sweat dripped from his forehead onto his training suit. Every few seconds he attempted to dry his slippery hands by rubbing over his pants. But when the clock finally hit 9, he opened the gate with a firm grip. A large smile appeared on his face as he yelled his favorite sentence: “WELCOME TO YMORA ACADEMY!”
This is for the RoG members only. August 30, 11.15 PM “Wait! We got another one!” the blond man said to a woman with a ponytail. All she did was nod while her companion escorted a young man named Ezekiel to deck. The blond man smirked. This brat was easy to read. All he had to do was to tell about RoG and their adventures to get him on board. “No talking to the others!” was all he ordered before going back to the woman. When Ezekiel arrived on deck, she saw about 20-30 other people. Some looked tired and others, especially the elder males, already had a beard from the long travels. Little did he know most of them came from Sinnoh and travelled to Johto and Kanto first. One of them was a man named Brian Dusk. He was one of the first one on board and saw newcomer after newcomer. By the cover of the night the ship left in complete silence. When the coast wasn’t visible anymore, the blond man returned. “All of you can return to your cabin now. You, newbie,” he pointed at Ezekiel, “You bunk with this guy.” This time he pointed to Brian. “And no talking! We arrive tomorrow morning at 7 PM!” The new recruits obeyed without question. All of them were tired anyway and some didn’t see the point in searching the bunks. Most of them arrived with nothing, but it was a part of RoG security. ******************************** “Get up, newbies!” the blond man yelled early in the morning. Ezekiel and Brian woke up, left their bunk and saw an island not far from the coast of Ymora. RoG members were already on their way with small rubber boats. A bald man with blue eyes watched from the coast as the recruits stepped in the boats. “28 this time?” he asked. “No sir, we received message that there’s a latecomer. 29 in total,” the other one said. This man had a small build and messy black hair. “Prepare the capsules,” was all the muscular bald man said before leaving. “Yes sir!” ******************************* The rubber boats arrived and the new recruits were guided to a small room. When the last one entered, the blond man from the ship closed the heavy iron door and locked it. The only way out now was behind the muscular bald man with blue eyes. “Welcome new recruits!” he said in a harsh tone. He only used that to speak to his trainees. “All of you have your reasons to be here, but we all share the same goal. We will change this still rotten world in our favor, just like the ones in power now have done. They think their system is great and all, but we fell out of it and there’s no place for us out there,” he said pointing to the door. “If some of you disagree, please leave through the door behind me.” He waited a few moments and when nobody moved he continued: “Great, I see all of you are prepared. My name is Caleb Hughes. I’m also known as Teach because I’m the one in charge to teach you all to survive and to perform in missions.” He stopped talking again and an awkward silence filled the place, but Teach let it continue for just a little longer before knocking on the door behind him. A small man with messy black hair entered the place, pushing a chart with Pokéballs on it. There were about 40 of them. “Pick one up, go through the door and pick a bunk at your right. Rest up from the long trip and stay there until further orders!” With that said Caleb and the unknown man left the room and took a left, away from the bunks.
