user posted image CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR WITH US! user posted image
It is with a fond goodbye that we say to 2017 and ring in the new year! While last year was amazing for PLEDGE, the end of it has seen a huge growth in our members, and we're so excited for the potential in store of 2018! With the new year, we're hoping to bring in new staff members, but we also have plenty more planned... Why don't you check out the OTMs, Swarms, Starters and much more!

user posted image What's this? It seems that our monthly OTM winners have been announced! Click to reveal!
Last month we asked everyone to submit suggestions for who we should pick for the Of The Month awards... and now, it's time to reveal the winners of January's Of The Month spotlight!
    user posted image January's member of the month is..!
    There has never been a user as favored by the masses as Oniwanbashu or, as everyone else calls her, Oni! Already having won in every category but only having been around for two months, Oni is definitely a run away fave among so many people. Sweet, creative, and artistic its not surprising just about everyone voted for her so many times (and while she has won I'm sure she'll get plenty more votes in the future as well).

    Now usually we talk about the user's a thousand and one characters (Sloth: I can't believe I made a crack at myself. Lee I blame you.) but Oni is the proud owner of only only a sparse few characters with Sirhan being the most popular and well versed one the others are still a unposted mystery! Of course with a few wips and even more ideas out there, we are all biting at the bit to see what amazing characters Oni has in store. And while Oni doesn't have a collective Plotter you can always plot with Sirhan here.

    Of course we know Oni's art well from the Researcher's Unique Trait Set Bonus but that's not the only thing Oni has created. Beautiful badges for the Rangers and even more lore for Uberrime just waiting to be used not to mention the plethora of lore we have collabed for all the Rangers being worked on behind the scene, Oni is a treasure and a half that will push this site even farther into the indepth lore we already have. So if you enjoy any of these little tidbits make sure to send Oni a message sharing how much you enjoy them and of course make sure to simply send some love if you simply enjoy Oni as a person.

    user posted image January's duo of the month is..!
    There is nothing cuter than two young childhood friends from Campana. Aki and Neo are just ready to go on their journeys but naturally waited for each other to make the experience truly special. But what had to come first? Ethan's Birthday! Although their Pokemon seem to be tricky ones as Techu the Sentret gets "lost" and the Breeder Niko helps find her!

    Friendships like this are very special and it'll be great to see how these two come in and out of each other's adventures. What's better than to have a friend out there where you can share moments of fun? These two will be sweeter than honey to follow so make sure to keep up with their adventures, both separately and together!

    user posted image January's quote of the month is..!

    Just about every Ranger knows of possibly the grumpiest and most violent Ranger in the group that is, adorably, named Lone Ranger. Most avoid him like the plague but Sirhan? He'll take on this Tauros head on. Sirhan is already done with his bullshit when LR brings in a mark that is more beat up than bread dough but when LR calls him Sweetheart he makes sure to throw down as good as he gets. This is a thread that has a high chance of turning into a fight which is sure to be entertaining for everyone spectating. Too bad its probably going to get them in a load of trouble.

    user posted image January's thread of the month is..!
    Its probably never a good idea to stare at a pirate but the bashful Sebastian takes it rather well when Mi Jin calls him out on it. Yet how exactly do you handle ogling a tattoo belonging to one of Ho'ohiki's fiercest sea faring Dragon Specialists? Why challenge them to a battle! The stakes? Buying the winner a snow cone! These two are quite the duo to see interact and this thread is incredibly fun. Promises of a rematch is in the wind so keep an eye on these two for a part two. After all.. how many books were in this series?

    user posted image January's Pokémon of the month is..!
    You know the saying: Dogs are Man's Best Friend. Saladin seems to be that and more. While someone with Saladin's background may end up an aggressive wreck, this pup presses on through all the things that makes his life hard. So far he'd do anything for Sirhan, including join him in a rescue mission in the fabled and horrific Quod Vorago. Nothing like fighting a twisted and dark Pokemon to wake you up in the morning! But regardless of his serious demeanor we all know there is a softy hiding in there somewhere because boy did he bond with Harper! Saladin will always be at Sirhan's side so if you want to keep up with the pup's adorable progress then I recommend keeping an eye on the, ever loved, Sirhan for all the updates you could wish for!

    user posted image January's character of the month is..!
    Probably the only person to keep up with Crow's love for Poison types is Karlos and what better way to do this than make a Poison Specialist! Sebastian is a sweet man with a great love for Poison Types and the desire to be a Gym Leader one day, bringing the wondrous and mysterious Poison Pokemon into the limelight.

    Of course the road to being a Gym Leader requires a lot of Training and Sebastian jumps right on that as he heads straight for Piscari in his very first Journey Thread. And while he may be a bashful and nervous person he is great around kids as he meets Aki who becomes quite nervous at meeting a stranger.

    We are all very excited to see how Sebastian's journey turns out. Even if he doesn't open the Gym of his dreams we are certain he will become one of the best Poison Specialist this side of Ho'ohiki, showing everyone that people from Johto mean business. Well... so long as he learns to talk to ladies.

user posted image The PLEDGE Staff team is looking for new Moderators-- both Wild Pokemon and Art Mods! Click to reveal!
    Hey everyone! Did you know that at the time of writing, we have over 100 active journey threads? Did you know we accepted almost twenty new characters in the last week alone? PLEDGE has over 30 active members, just judging on our raffle entries alone!

    This is absolutely amazing, but at the same time it is crazy overwhelming when we only have the small, expert staff team that we currently do. So! For the time being, we are looking for new staff members! If you've ever wanted to draw Unique Quality Pokemon for PLEDGE, or write Wild Pokemon posts-- check it out and send us a PM! At the moment our staff team as a whole is going through a huge revamp, so please reach out to us if you have any ideas or would like to help with something not mentioned-- who knows, maybe you're the perfect person to help keep our Ducklett's in a row!

    Please note: We almost never accept people who have joined PLEDGE in the last month. Send in your application anyway, but we might wait a little bit until we know you better to make sure you'll fit on the team!

    GARBODOR are sliming up Uberrime...AGAIN!
    Consuming garbage makes new kinds of poison gases and liquids inside their bodies.

    It appears the extremely cold weather and lack of proper snow removal has caused the trash removal services to go on strike creating a whole slew of Garbodor to roam the streets.

    user posted image
    BUTTERFREE are migrating early to Quod Galae!
    It loves the honey of flowers and can locate flower patches that have even tiny amounts of pollen.

    It appears Butterfree from Kanto have made the long journey early and have found themselves in the supremely cold weather. These Bugs don't know what to do with the cold! Help them!

    user posted image
    DARMANITAN are ever watchful in Niveus Pass!
    Its internal fire burns at 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, making enough power that it can destroy a dump truck with one punch.

    Something has awoken the guardians of the ruins and now the wander the snow covered slopes, anxiously looking for the source of their concerns.

    user posted image
    MUDBRAY are being born all across the Bends!
    Possessing mighty power, Mudbray can be loaded with 50 times its own body weight and will be totally fine.

    Despite the chill Mudbray are being born in the Bends. There are dozens, possibly two hundred of the babies roaming in tight knit herds. Rounding up one away from its family will be quite the rodeo.

    TYPE: NULL are stalking the streets of-- Caecus Town?!
    Due to the danger that this synthetic Pokémon may go on a rampage, it wears a control mask to restrain its power.

    While a few of these Pokemon have roamed Ho'ohiki from unknown sources it appears Caecus Town is seeing dozens of these strange and aggressive Pokemon. Rumors are underground researchers and breeders to blame, a criminal organization behind them. Either way everyone wants these dangers gone before they cause serious problems to the populace.

    user posted image
    Shuppet are haunting Aduro Pass!
    Shuppet is attracted by feelings of jealousy and vindictiveness. If someone develops strong feelings of vengeance, this Pokémon will appear in a swarm and line up beneath the eaves of that person’s home.

    The vindictive nature of the Shuppet and the deaths of so many Pokemon due to volcano have resulted in a swarm of the Ghosts along the Pass, preventing entrance of more trainers as they feed upon them and the dark emotions of the angry Pokemon that remain.

user posted image It's time for our the site-wide raffle! Click to reveal!
    Thanks to our generous donators, we've instituted a site-wide raffle that anyone can enter! This month's Raffle is giving away a choice of three very special items! Check out this thread for more information and to enter for free!

    Click to find out more!
    Enigma Stone Thought once to be linked to certain Legendaries, this stone has unusual properties and seems to effect Pokemon in mysterious ways. Turns an existing Pokemon into a Delta. If this item is given to or held by a Pokemon in a Journey thread they will go into a magical and strange transformation. The transformation will be based on location but also on your favorite typing. So long as you're in a location that supports your typing you can transform your Pokemon into a Delta! This happens in odd ways and no one transformation is alike because of this it may only happen in a journey thread, so keep that in mind.

    Sacred Ash This soot is said to be the last remnants of a Burning God and it is incredibly good luck to rub it into the skin of a Pokemon. Turns an existing Pokemon or Egg into a Shiny upon its next Evolution/hatching. Alternatively it can be used along the routes to discover a Shiny This item, when rubbed into the skin or along the shell of a Pokemon, will cause an odd thing to happen upon its hatching or evolution. Unfortunately during the transformation the Pokemon turns Domestic for at least 3 Months for unknown reasons and remain Domestic until an ability change is earned. Yet when spread around around location, while searching for a Wild Pokemon, this issue is circumvented entirely. It does not need a journey thread unless you are looking for a Wild Pokemon.

    Rainbow Wing A single feather from the most beautiful of Deities said to be the most fateful offering when presented in the right locations. Lets the character meet a Legendary of the given location While rarely spoken of, this item will call down from the heavens, deep within the bowels of the earth, other dimensions, thick in the wilds, or any number of ways a God is said to hide from the world. Be careful and hold steady, not all Gods wish to be summoned or interacted with and some are not of good or kind natures. Should you call upon them anyways, be careful with your words and actions for that means everything for these powerful beings. This item can only be used in a journey thread, so keep that in mind.

    The raffle is ending on February 18th, so get on this for a chance to win!

user posted image Looking for some reading material? Why not check out today's thread spotlights? Click to reveal!
    Below are some threads that our Staff has picked out to showcase. If you have suggestions for future thread spotlights, message Shafaer with the links.

    Birds of a Feather Flock Together (CW: Suggestive Speech, Physical Intimacy, Implied Sexual Content) -- Barrett has just finished a night of fighting in the Piscari pits and is on his way home when he's waylaid by Z! The white-haired man is in an exceptional mood and wishes to share the good fortune of his company with his fellow Traditionalist. After taking Barrett back to his place and patching him up, the two head out for drinks. Z is being his usual naughty self with some heavy flirting and suggestive terminology that has his shy friend blushing most of the night. But what secrets will a drinking game reveal and will Z manage to convince Barrett to come home with him?

    The Gift of Giving -- This thread starts off with the Hitsubaki twin's Christmas tradition of exchanging horrible presents and setting their bet for the season, then moves to later in the day with Ichigo working up some holiday charity. Gathering gifts for those less fortunate, she heads to one of the largest Christmas trees in Uberrime. Sirhan is suppose to meet her, but his running behind due to usual shenanigans. Follow along as these two Rangers do what they can to spread some holiday cheer to the lower classes and homeless of the shining city. This thread is ongoing, so be sure to check back!

    A Snowy Pirates Day -- The crew of the Kyogre's Rage are getting in the holiday spirit and will likely have the most decorated ship in the harbor. The crew is finally all together--including the busy and often absent Raymond--for breakfast and Captain couldn't be more thrilled! Feeling full of joy and Christmas spirit she declares that it is to be day of celebration for her crew! What mischief with these pirates get up to? This is an ongoing thread, so be sure to stay tuned!

    Walking off Night Terrors -- Chris is woken in the early hours of morning by night terrors. Unable to see himself going back to sleep, he decides to do for a walk through Okeanos. The last thing he expected was to be approached by a Skitty looking for a meal. Thinking that she's lost, he agrees to feed her and plans on helping find her trainer. During breakfast he discovers she's actually a stray Pokemon. He's thinking of asking the adorable kitten to join his team, but there's something going on down the street that has the Skitty running off. What will Chris find when he follows? And can he convince the Skitty to join him?

    Training in the Hills -- On his way home to Agri from visiting a dear friend in Campana, Mouku decides to take the opportunity to do some training on route. It's a chilly day and the clouds are threatening snow, so he's a bit surprised when they gain a small audience. Once it seems Krag has reached his limit, the specialist calls the match and approaches the woman and her Pokemon who decided to stop and watch. The Stipes woman, while curious, is a bit anxious about the stranger, particularly to their possible reaction to her Absol, the disaster Pokemon. Is the man upset at being watched? Or will the natural rivalry between fighting and dark types by a problem?

    We All Start Somewhere... -- The first day of his journey has arrived and Ethan couldn't be more excited--much to his Pichu's exasperation. After setting out, it doesn't take long for the young researcher to come across a Skiddo who's struggling to remove some ribbon some local children had decorated the Pokemon with. Using some food to help settle the grass type proves to only attract more Pokemon, but the Skiddo doesn't want to share! Will Ethan be able to settle the dispute? And will he get a new companion from the adventure?

    This Is NOT How You Make Friends -- Alfred is trying to lie low in Uberrime until the heat dies down--though he's not sure why there is heat when it's been well over a month since he did anything illegal?--when Big Momma wanders up with a Gible that most definitely is not theirs. While trying to convince her to put them back where she got them, a very angry Sirhan and Saladin catch up Fortunately, Alfred's sincerity reaches the Ranger and he believes him when he says it's an accident. Unfortunately, it seems that this man with the Kangaskhan is the poacher in the file Sirhan had just been going over...What will happen? Will Sirhan arrest Alfred? Will the accidental Poacher convince the Ranger to let him go? Stay tuned as this thread is still on going!
