The suggestion that I had is called an action and consequence system for example.

Poachers have been able to completely run. Piscari Town.

->The consequence could be people leaving, letting it be more of a ghost town and certain other villages or towns get more people.

--> Since a lot of crime and destruction happens more harmonious pokemon leave and more vile Pokemon come in their place.

----> The police force will send more forces in order to fight against all the poachers.

This is just an example, but It can be used in a lot of different variation.

Yeah, we've actually been planning on having the world evolve as characters interact with it! Right now, Piscari Town has been suffering A LOT and due to that, there's been an increase in crime. But if you look around, you'll see that Hudor Reef was *formed* because of the trouble in Piscari, and a lot of people have moved to Okeanos to get away from the misery of that place :') Piscari used to have a lot more people living there, now Okeanos is almost a *city* because of how hollowed out Piscari is now, lmao.

And don't worry... The Rangers will be dealing with Piscari soon enough... ;)

There's actually quite a lot of little detail about what's going on in the world, and hopefully you'll notice the impact of characters on the site as the time goes by :'D It'll be slow, especially at first, but so's life. Rome wasn't built in a day~

As our character numbers grow it becomes more difficult to check taken face claims. Its also impossible to check on mobile. so maybe an official face claim thread should be considered?

Also a page dedicated to who the Rangers are in the region, which rangers are stationed where and what their 'special gear item' would help encourage rangers being made.

also we still need even more gays

Missions/jobs/quests/heists/research trips? Maybe not necessary for here and to be left to plotting and events, but thought it might be cool to have an IC 'billboard' somewhere where trainers can find NPC, or PC, 'ads'. Seen this sort of thing on other sites so thought something similar might be fun here. Missions could be for ranger types that have a specific rangery feel, quests could be legendary related for those interested and spiritual types, heists could be for those less than savory characters, research trips would be a bit like a team lead field trip for researcher types, and jobs could be more common, ordinary things such as finding a lost pokemon for someone or delivering an item from one place to another, etc. But they'd be modded journey/event like threads that could be solo or require collaboration with other PCs and give special rewards at the end. And while each type of 'job' might be themed for a specific trainer class the class wouldn't be required for taking it, but the type would affect the kinds of rewards given. Also each ad could have varying levels of difficulty.
So yea, wall of text idea. :s

Apologies for the wait! <3

It would be cool if the cities, namely Uberrime and Caecus, had Groomers where you could pay P to raise Link. There could be a limit to how often you take your Pokemon to a Groomer so like 5% in a month max. But that way it kind of acts like the Groomers in games that raised Pokemon Friendship.

It could also double as the places to get your Furfrou groomed for different designs. Uberrime could have a set, Caecus could have another, so on and so forth with as many groomers you guys wanted to create.

I think we should have a Move Tutor who helps Pokemon rediscover or learn hidden moves they may have missed or want back again.

An Example of such would be-
A Growlithe can ONLY learn Outrage at Lv43 and Flare Blitz at Lv45. So a trainer may desire to go after these moves being as only a Growlithe can learn them. But going to this level as a Growlithe does not allow them to learn the move Extremespeed they would have learned as an Arcanine. This can be easily fixed by taking the Pokemon to the move tutor and paying a fee as the move itself is not available through any TMs.

Dunno if this is already planned for but maybe we could have a couple research labs setup where trainers can revive fossils and that maybe offers other services.. These could also double as locations where Researchers can be associated with, similar to how the Ranger stations work.

Also I know we have the pet shop in Uberrime but was thinking there could also be an adoption center in like Campana that would have either randomly generated pokemon that changes monthly, a bit like starter pokemon, or trainers can actually put their own pokemon up for adoption.

@Koo: yes yes, likely just a matter of time before we get groomers up. actually one of the more simple threads for us to put up but i take forever doing it... expect this eventually

@Kenkou: fun fact: literally anyone can function as a move tutor-- as long as someone has a pokemon with a move you want on your pokemon, as long as they can learn it you can spend the time to tutor! http://pokemonpledge.jcink.net/index.php?act=Pages&pid=10#learning more info here. we probably will have npc move tutors at some point, though! i can definitely see gyms also functioning this way.

@Jance: we definitely need to get some research labs and stuff for researchers put up. i'd love for there to be a mechanic where researchers can "unlock" hidden potential in some pokemon, stuff like undomesticating, unique moves (like ash's bulbasaur's Dig which i adore to this day), and more. basically improving pokemon without breeding, which will be limited in its own way

and we're definitely adding more pokeshops-- these just take a while to make. campana has been given an egg nursery! eventually, okeanos will have a proper adoption center, caecus will have very expensive domestic/specially breed show pokemon, and agri will have livestock (perhaps as auctions)

... just a few quick things to give you guys something to nibble on. Feel free to keep throwing suggestions or expanding upon ideas I've put up here <3

Mega Evolutions and Bonds

Okay, so this is just... an idea that I had while we were chatting about Megas and stuff in the Discord. Obviously, from the title above, it involves Megas and something kinda based off of "battle bond" or whatever.

SO.

In the games and even in the anime, mega evolution is implied to be based on the strength of the bond between a Pokemon and their trainer, but in this case, it's their link percentage. Not all Pokemon have megas, and I just thought it would be... really hecking cool if there was such a thing.

Perhaps when the link between a Pokemon and their companion becomes 100%, they become capable of their own, <i>unique</i> (player-designed) mega evolution. An example of this could be Bob and his beloved Flygon's link is at 100%. In battle, Bob could have Flygon mega evolve just like any other mega would.

When designing unique megas, perhaps the player could have a photo of the mega in question and then what stats ME-ing would boost/change and a new ability (if it is going to be changed) for it. They'd then have to have it approved by the staff. This would be so that megas aren't abused and become overpowered.

Perhaps, instead of just having it be able to happen without a mega stone, maybe allow members to craft mega stones for just their pokemon in particular like... Bob makes a Flygonite so that Flygon is capable of mega evolution. But this kinda violates the 100% link thing idk yet. If stone crafting does become a thing, maybe have an NPC that's just... super wise about megas and also super good at it. Maybe having a mega stone helps boost the mega or something like... make it stronker.

Also, maybe make battle bonds like * sighs * Ash-Greninja a thing where if you get to 100% link, you can either make a mega or have battle bond be a thing with that pokemon and just like... rekt everything because AG is like, W AY better apparently according to Versilify. this would also be cool bc it wouldn't be quite like a mega but make the pokemon stronger and stuff and just super close to their partner or something.

Since Egg Moves aren't as easy to obtain as they are in the game (breeding takes a lot longer to achieve and you don't always want to lose your favorite Pokemon you start with) perhaps allow them to be won in contests or tutorable under special circumstances.
