Pokemon Guide

Post by Crono on Fri Sep 04, 2009 8:05 pm

As promised in briefing, here is a compiled list of resources about the creatures known as Pokemon. Given our limited understanding, this will be kept up-to-date as further resources become more and more available.

Pokemon
Pokemon are a group of creatures native to the world of our coming mission. They vary greatly, but all share a structure of genetic traits that allow them to harness impressive sets of abilities. These abilities are just as diverse as the species themselves, ranging from control over elements, psychic powers, to physical prowess. Their level of intelligence and response places them above that of what one might consider a standard animal. Pokemon are also oviparous. These creatures are highly integrated into the local society. Much of the populace keep Pokemon as companions, and a large portion of these are trained for competitive battle. As part of our open experience, the Blaze of Glory is being recognized as a 'single trainer' for purposes of recognition. With this opportunity given, it will be extremely important that we abide by the common balance of the society, which is why Pokemon will be important. Should any conflict arise during investigation, we'll need to abide by common practice in resolving it.

Spoiler:

Examples of varied Pokemon.




Relating Technologies
There is a large following for technology and general research surrounding Pokemon, thanks to their societal integration. From Pokemon dictionaries to vitamins, one can find just about anything relating to them. Here's a brief list of common tools everyone should learn to be familiar with.

Pokeball
The Pokeball is a spherical device used by Pokemon Trainers to capture wild Pokemon and store them when not active. The balls convert a Pokemon into energy upon contact, suck it inside, and close automatically. Stronger Pokemon are able to struggle and possibly break free, while those that have been weakened are easily captured. The Pokeball, not in use, is the size of a golf ball and with the press of the central button, enlarges to the size of a baseball. The Pokemon is released for battle by throwing the ball, and when retrieving a Pokemon, a beam of red colored light will convert the Pokemon into energy and retrieve it.

Technical Machines(TM)
An impressive device with a unique interface which will actually teach a Pokemon a new ability, with certain restrictions. This process exhibits amazing potential, allowing use of the ability with full confidence.

Pokedex
The Pokedex, is an electronic device designed to catalog and provide information regarding the various species of Pokemon. The Pokemon acts as a portable reference tool, able to give information about a certain species of Pokemon even if a trainer has not seen or caught it before. It can also give detailed descriptions of various trainer tools, and it acts as a form of identification. I've ported a version of the Pokedex that will run off a standard data pad setup onto our public network space. I'd recommend downloading a copy for your own use.

Specifics around these technologies may be unveiled, along with others, the longer we stay. On top of that, there will be additions of relating topics in follow up to this, so please look to keep updated.

Shaila here! I've been asked to write about one subject in particular.

Pokemon Trainers!

The basic definition of a pokemon trainer is someone who catches and trains pokemon for battle. They have a number of tools at their disposal, including the aforementioned pokeballs as well as pokedexes and poketechs. Since technology is Crono's deal I'll leave the poketech explanation for him!

There are many ages of Pokemon Trainer, the minimum age seeming to be about the age of ten. A licensing process doesn't seem to be required, though it does seem customary to receive your first pokemon from another certified trainer or professional. From there, trainers usually set off on a journey to come out victorious against all eight gym leaders in their respective region. Victory in this is not required however, as a number of people have settled into their careers without accomplishing this task fully.

Beating all gym leaders -is- required if you aspire to go on to the Pokemon League however. Once there, you gain the opportunity to battle that region's Elite Four. These are the top four trainers of the entire region, and few people pass that final hurdle. If you do beat them, you are given the opportunity to become one of the Elite Four, or go on to a special area known as the Battle Frontier. This area consists of other strong trainers that have come as far as you, and here you're able to battle to your heart's content.

However, like I said, this isn't the only path in the career of a Pokemon Trainer. Some find what they'd like to do along the way. They can become breeders, workers at a Pokemon Center, or even policemen, who work a lot alongside Pokemon to enforce the law. And even more options!

The world of a pokemon trainer is a vast, wide, mysterious world with many paths! Enjoy the opportunity you guys are being given, it's truly a wondrous one! YAY!

Status
-Team Galactic has been sighted making attempted robberies for information on Legendary Pokemon. We have apprehended one in the process.
-Their next efforts were to hold up a Shrine in the Sinnoh Region, learning information about a trio of Legendary Pokemon. Luckily, the villagers were cooperative bug vague, hiding specifics they shared with us.
-Said specifics lead to rumors of three Lakes within the Sinnoh region being connected to the trio of Pokemon. We took a venture to these, and found nothing but three suspiciously convenient caves at the center of each, though one location also had a fairly unnatural hole dug nearby on the lake's edge. Signal units were hidden within each, in order to track potential Galactic visits, or even return of any potential dwellers within.
-Later it was reported Team Galactic had turned even more act, attacking Professors in specific looking for Legendary information, though their attempt on one Professor Elm was thwarted by the very professor single-handedly.

We've also gone to an abandoned Power Plant north of Lavender Town on the east coast of Kanto where the legendary pokemon Zapdos is rumored to roost from time to time. We found evidence that he does go there, and convinced the local pokemon to warn him about Team Galactic's efforts if they see him.

Last evening, we made an assault on Team Galactic Headquarters against the Void Galactic Commander Pluto. Upon defeat, she escaped, but we were able to recover information from their network after disabling the same SNB222 'Slash and Burn' data wipe algorithm we'd already seen on their ship on our entry. The following was revealed.

As assumed, the Void are not here to mess around with the system in place on the planet. They are after the Legendary Pokemon, Dialga and Palkia, a pair whose existence is said to control time and space itself. Why? Reven is already considerably powerful, but, a theory has been proposed by Void's science tech that the essence of these keepers would in fact be similar to the relation ship of the Gift of Time and Space Magic.

Dialga and Palkia represent the keepers of time and space, respectively. Ralf Derrison and Reven represent the keepers of time and space elsewhere, respectively. If Ralf is killed by Reven, relinquishing the Gift of Dimensional Time Magic, Reven comes a god. What if Reven killed Dialga? Or if not that, what if Dialga's power over time was somehow sapped - to make an artificial Gift of Dimensional Time Magic? This is not an unfeasible claim, as the original gifts themselves were already artificial to begin with.

Thus Reven sought to gain control over this planet. But the problem was that the Ideal was strong here. Usual methods were not to be taken. Enter Team Galactic - an already widespread criminal movement already planning to use Dialga and Palkia's power for their own purposes - with the Ideal nearly in mind, no less.

Information points that Cyrus, Team Galactic's head, had been pursuing a plan of obtaining three Legendary Pokemon to utilize their power, but this step has now been deemed necessary. A small stone, imbued with the Gift of Dimensional Space Magic, has been given to Cyrus, along with something referred to as 'Red Chain'. Synthetically made. The files do not elaborate any further than this. With that, Cyrus summons the Pokemon, and at least Dialga must be captured, and their goals have been accomplished.

However, there is something interesting to note about all this. Cyrus seems to have left his last several transmissions completely unanswered, and has gone off the radar. It would be a reasonable assumption to say that he is still out pursuing his own agenda. Hence why Commander Pluto only offered us Saturday atop Spear Pillar as any sort of forward lead before her escape - even they don't know where to find him currently outside of this appointment. Needless to say, we will prepare to make our move there at that day.

Whether or not this is the location of this intended 'summoning' is uncertain, but it would be fair to prepare with that possibility in mind. That in mind, everyone should be preparing the worst. Given Cyrus' alternate agendas, he may have something powerful already up his sleeve. In the meantime, we will continue to work through Gyms with the intention of strengthening our Pokemon for coming conflict. Do your best, everyone.

FROM: Genevieve May Nadia Lilianne
TO: Blaze of Glory Posting Board

This posting is directly after our encounter with Cyrus, Dialga, and Palkia on Spear Pillar.

Due to my position in the battle, I am unable to directly recount events after Cyrus's failed attempt to exert control over Dialga and Palkia. However, I can provide a small amount of supplemental information.

First, there was a portal which opened on Spear Pillar after Cyrus called upon Dialga and Palkia. Something on the other side of the portal grabbed Cyrus and pulled him in, then closed the portal.

There was absolutely no trace of the Gift of Dimensional Space Magic involved in either the creation of this portal or the being inside of it. The being inside seems to have been a very ancient, very powerful Pokemon. Furthermore, when the portal closed for the last time after the fight, it left no traces in its wake. It was very seamlessly opened and closed. There seems to be no lingering instability or other indications that such a portal could open again without similar direct provocation.

There were also two mystery Pokemon which teleported into the battle. They were a Gallade and an Empoleon. The teleportation they used was an innate Pokemon ability which Gallade knows, one that is based on psychic power. The teleport was too difficult to trace for a number of reasons, but I was able to conclude that the distance it covered was a very long one. Someone was intervening from far away.

Those who directly participated might be able to provide better information.

Excellen
