Roleplay / Pokémon Lavender

Go To

Pokémon Lavender is a play by post Pokémon roleplay hosted on the Ten Thousand Rads website.

Following off the heels of Pokémon Alexandrite, the roleplay is a darker take on the Pokémon series, structured such that players contribute their own plotlines and story.

The first thread can be found here, with the two follow-ups here and here. It was eventually abandoned in June 2014.

Pokémon Lavender contains examples of:

  • Darker and Edgier: The earthquake, if not stopped, threatens a death toll in the millions. It followed through on it as well. Lampshaded by Helsie. And now Jack has died with his Pokémon to boot.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Riley's overuse of gas grenades gets the group stuck for some time in an underground base, since the grenades aren't dispersing very quickly.
  • Expy: Lots of the characters are based off of their Pokémon Adventures counterparts.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Zexy delivers one to Rob after his brother dies and he threatens to kill the CEO of Pitchblende.
  • Implacable Man: November's Cofagrigus, every single time she releases it, will attempt to eat her and the other members of the party, shrugging off attacks as it goes.
  • Joke Character: Desmond is explicitly stated to have been based off the Bug Maniacs from Hoenn. Who generally suck at battling. True to form, he has a team of all Bug-type or bug-like Pokémon
  • Lethal Joke Character: Desmond comes loaded for bear against people who would demolish ordinary Bug Catchers and has shown himself to be quite a capable battler.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Jack meets his end this way after November's Froslass freezes him while he's running.
  • The Load: November's team of Pokémon have proven thus far to be the most potent obstacles in the series. Froslass even killed Jack.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after Lavender Town due to the excess of Creepypasta surrounding it.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Medic: Leo's team focuses primarily on healing, with the possible exception of Hastreebel.
  • Only Sane Man: Serena, for the most part. She's certainly the least quirky out of the group.
  • Shout-Out: Rob owns a Torchic named Zexy.


How well does it match the trope?
