I don't really have any ideas on what to do about Necrozma and am fine with your use, as well as Tagg (And Channah)'s Multiversal Adventure.
I also have Ideas(TM) for Zygarde but I will wait so as to not steal thunder. (Also I need to fully write them out)
There's also Mezzo's No Sun Universe to take into account, but we'll need her input on that. Other than that, I'm cool with the direction you're taking it.

Okiedoke, looks like I will be mostly handling this Necrozma thing myself then aside from a few choice bits with Verax, Tagg, and Mezzo.
On a completely diffrent note, two NP Cs for other people's plots!
Name: Sylvestra Macraul
Appearance: Basically Fate!Semiramis in a Honchkrow-themed dress and hat and with green hair, pointy ears included
Organizational Ties: The Macraul Family
Backstory: One of the original progenitors of the Macraul family, Sylvestra has been manipulating the family affairs for centuries, all while using her Aura Drain abilities to sap the life of unfortunate victims and keep her watch on the family eternal. She is a consumate collector of just about anything she deems valuable, but the most prized items in her collection are various peices of precursor tech and the macarbe stuffed corpses of Battle Bond mons.
Name: Black Fog
Personality: Sylvestra's loyal partner for as long as he's been dead, The Black Fog is a giant, monstrous-looking Haunter that has traveled the world preying on innocent mons with his Dream Eater attack, and has fought Lina on occasion. He always returns to Sylvestra to help serve her ends.
Ability: Iron Fist
Personality: The spirit of fellow Macraul progenitor and Sylvestra's husband David Macraul sealed into a Golurk body, Goliath helps his wife keep a watchful vigil on the family, He often disagrees with her in which parts of her collection are his.
Name: Aphrodite Clavis
Appearance: this◊ but with ice blue hair; in-universe at least regarded as exceptionally beautiful
Organizational Ties: Fractal Dimensional Research Company
Backstory: Heir to a thriving buisness in interdimensional research and products, Aphrodite was married to a certain Dr. Ivo Univyse, and bore three children with him. However, when one of those children dissapeared in a strange baking spacetime meddling accident, the two became estranged, and now Aphrodite is trying to figure out what to do now.
Ability: Swift Swim
Personality: Irritable, impatient, Buoy ironically hates staying still and wants to keep going to the next thing. She has a soft spot for cute mons of any gender in her egg group though.
Personality: In contrast to Buoy, slow, methodical, and likes sitting in sunlight and getting high on Aromatherapy over actualy doing anything. Can occasionally be motivated by food.

And now, a chatacter related to the above NPCs!
Name: Anna Macraul (Born Anna Rose)
Age: 55 (Born 1962)
Appearance: In contrast to Paul, Anna is a tall, tanned Kalosian-woman. Despite her age, she doesn't look a day over 30 and has quite the athletic body (altough it resembles an acrobat's more than, say, a wrestler's). She has mid-length, smooth black hair with a single streak of dark purple in it, which is usually left loose. Depending on several factors, she wears either one of her dresses (in shades of gray, blue, or black) or a sleek black catsuit.
Organizational Ties: Macraul Family
Backstory/Hobbies: Being the wife of Paul Macraul, Anna shares many of his interests. While she does enjoy helping her husband in his pursuits, Anna has a few collections of her own. Specifically, while she taked anything valuable, she likes to collect rare gemstones, valuable paintings, and (oddly enough) gold coins. Unlike Paul, she prefers to do the..."acquisition" of goods herself. Of course, she also harbors a secret...
Personality: A sly, charming Weavile with a love of money.
Personality: A wary Liepard who harbors an intense dislike of Zubats and aims to protect her owner.
Ability: Super Luck
Personality: A thieving Honchkrow with a love of sweets and a habit of nicknaming people.

She looks intresting!
Also, a note I forgot my past two posts:
Through the cumulative combination of the Best Berry raid, the "kidnapping" of PEFE!Every, and the Iron raid, the J-Team is now considered the number 1 enemy of Mobius! As such, they have mobilized and, unless it causes more of a ruckus than it's worth, will engage J-Team members on sight, and are causing multiverse-related trouble in general, so prepare to have them thrown at people in-game evil team style. However, I can't quite write all these guys myself, so it's reccomended you all write your own Mobius encounters when you get the chance and even stck them into plots when you can. And accompanying multiverse shenanigans are welcome!
To work off of Umbra's Mobi-lization, Team Iron is now considered "Inactive" as villains for the time being due to the beating they took, with only a damaged ship, a scattered command structure, and a missing Vice Director. For the time being that are going to be hiding out and trying to build up a base without dragging a Legendary to it to attract attention.
On another note!
Me and Tagg had the idea that the Poipole line would be exempt from the Ultra Beast Clause in terms of aquisition, since they're normal starter mons in their home dimension. This means theoretically a given PC or NPC could own a Poipole-line mon and another Ultra Beast at the same time. This would also mean characters hailing from
Ultra Megapolis, in Poipole's home dimension, would have Poipole Pokeforms.
But does this seem good or do people have any suggestions?
That seems pretty reasonable to me!
I'm cool with this
Sounds reasonable to me.
Considering that Poiple breaks most of the rules of Ultra Beasts - having non prime-number based stats, having a stat total below 570, having an evolution - I'd say that them being an exception to the UB rule makes the most sense.

All right, so, what I actually wanted to post in this thread, back on the subject of Soul Bite — since Silent suggested making it weaker in exchange for an effect buff, I'm thinking that the new version could be essentially a retyped Draining Kiss:
Soul Bite [GHOST] — Special — 50 Base Power — 10 PP (max. 16) — 100% Accuracy Makes contact — Affected by Protect — Not affected by Magic Coat — Not affected by Snatch — Affected by King's Rock The user feeds on the target's soul, draining their energy. The user's HP is restored by 75% of the damage the target takes.
It has the standard fare with the Big Root, Liquid Ooze, et cetera, and is functionally the same as Draining Kiss aside from the type matchups.

I approve of this
I approve of Poipole-related things and Soul Bite!
Soul Bite as it stands works fine for me!
And now for another COMISSION DUMP
First! Jean◊ by here Sachi Naru!
Second, the Pecha Mecha◊ by our very own Echoing Silence!
Third, Human!Heracles◊ by Revolver-D!
Again I would highly reccomemd any of these artists for your commissioning needs! Buf thoughts?
And now, a plot that has been in the works behind the scenes for a bit between me, Bitters, and others, answering just what is causing Fire Emblem characters to show up in a Pokemon RP of all places...
Oh no! The evil Emblian Empire has found a way to toss people from the Fire Emblem sector of the multiverse to the OU in a bid for conquest... But most of the time they keep turning into Pokemon! The J-Team must round up these wayward humons and humans and see if they can return home... if they even want to that is. Regardless defeating the Emblian Empire is also on the table!
Now, some rules...
But any questions/suggestions/pre-emptive claims?

Hey, so, I mentioned it in the chat, I'm considering having Onabarrak (Kai's Golett) have the Conquest ability Last Bastion in place of the standard Golurk abilities. Since Golurk didn't appear in Pokemon Conquest, there isn't any other precedence for what the Golurk line might be able to get, and I feel like such an ability (particularly with the name "Last Bastion") is rather fitting for the line.
To describe the ability in canon, it increases the Pokemon's Attack and Defense stats when the user is the last Pokemon on its team. However, since Conquest only had one Attack stat and one Defense stat, rather than a split between Physical and Special, I'd like to ask if it would be unreasonable to expand it to both Attacks and both Defenses, to achieve the full effect of the game equivalent. Due to the nature of the RP, being a heavily story-driven medium where P Cs are unlikely to be brought down to such a narrow margin of victory except in cases where the story takes precedence over the mechanics anyway, it's unlikely to be brought up in a situation where it risks being OP.
If necessary, we could add a few clauses to balance it — of course one is the League clause, where Pokemon with Last Bastion aren't allowed to participate in most League-sanctioned battles.

That makes sense to me, including the League clause.
Update — due to a suggestion from Verax, I may cut it back to just plain physical Attack and Defense that's boosted, rather than both physical and special. Think of it as a free Bulk Up when the mon's the last one left.
"Free Bulk Up" is fine by me.
About the first event in the Clavis Successor Arc, I've said it would be the "end of January" before now, but I'd like to set a date between the 24-31.
Other than Thursdays - which is my Dn D night as well as for a few others, which of those days are good for those interested?
I'll also need Clavis NPC overviews from any interested. I have Umbra's, but if anyone else wants in, I'll at least need need a Name, Business, and a General background - Pokemon are optional - by the day before we start.
