Go To

Here. An Alternate Universe Journal Roleplay set in a Pokémon world. Five hundred years ago, a cataclysmic war between man and Pokémon erupted, ending only when a lone woman, known by her successors as the Savior, stepped forward to peacefully end the fighting. Now, society has been rebuilt in a city known as Union, the last known bastion of civilization, and its inhabitants are charged with exploring the world and expanding what they know about it.

This game provides examples of:

  • After the End: By five hundred years.
  • Alternate Universe
  • And Man Grew Proud: The reason the war erupted was that humans had treated themselves as lords and masters over their Pokémon, rather than partners.
  • Apocalypse How: The war caused a societal collapse on a (we assume) planetary scale.
  • Arranged Marriage: Common among the upper classes, as humanity needs to repopulate. Enlightened are often exempt, however.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Characters with the Analyst perk.
  • Badass Normal: Characters with the Far From Ordinary perk are not Enlightened, but they do display certain Enlightened characteristics by virtue of being just that good.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Justified Trope. Characters with the Mastery of Battle perk can find ways to do things in battle that are normally impossible, like having an Electric-type move damage a Ground-type Pokémon.

  • Comm Links: The Warp Bands function as these, but only if they're within transmission range.
  • The Empire: Gigas.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Characters with the Kindred Soul perk.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Characters with the Engineer perk.
  • Humanity Ensues: Shifters.
  • Lamarck Was Right: Enlightened typically derive their powers from being descendants of the Savior.
  • Magical Girl: The game has quite a few Sailor Moon and Pretty Cure characters. And yes, they can transform.
  • Original Generation: The game accepts original characters.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Trainers with the God of War perk.
  • The Power of Friendship: How trainers from Union form bonds with wild Pokémon, rather than using Poké Balls.
  • Title Drop: Happened in the council's speech after the earthquake event concluded.
  • Training from Hell: May or may not be this drastic depending on the trainer, but characters with the Master of Training perk can help their Pokémon grow stronger at a faster rate than normal.
  • Advertisement:
  • Transhuman: Enlightened. They're humans with Pokémon characteristics, either in terms of ability or physical appearance. It's a continuation of the blessing of the Savior, and all Enlightened within Union can trace ancestry to her at some point.
  • What Does She See in Him?: The universal reaction to finding out that Lux and Ezreal are dating.
