Horizons is officially CLOSED. The board will remain accessible as an archive, but staff has moved on. If you're looking for a new Pokemon RP, try Lucky Strike or any number of others.
Welcome to Veria!
Pokémon Horizons is an expansive RP driven by member-planned plots and regular site events more than any singular site-wide plot, meaning there is always something to do and always room for new ideas.
From classic Pokémon staples to simple slice-of-life to grandiose encounters with Legendary Pokémon, there's a little something for everyone. We've been open since December 2015 and are always eager to welcome new friends~

Gidget Aquarius Monrose
Standing at six foot even, she is by no means a small girl. She built sturdy with a body hardened from a life working on research ships. She has a slight tan to her skin, though its not to dark. Her eye's are blue as the oceans she so adores. Her hair is a dark red, that contrasts a lovely shade against her skin and eyes. She has a rather large breast size, while she has a trim thirty two inch waist. Her attire consists of a short orange crop top with red straps and a yellow frill at the bottom that exposes her midriff. She wears short green pants and long stockings that reach past her knee caps, as well as red panties that's straps are partially visible above her shorts, resting on her hips.
Although she always keeps a burnt orange bikini under any outfit she wears. Her long hip length red hair is generally kept in a secure ponytail with a blue hair tie. Small strands of hair are kept framing her face with a large blue, white, and black bead on both side of her face. Both ears are pierced once and generally blue sapphire studs dot her ears. At any given time she has a leather tool belt with two large pouches strapped around her waist. The pouches on both of her hips going down the outside of her thighs, these pouches are where she carries her Pokeballs.
She is feisty and never turns away from a fight. She is extremely intelligent though she knows how to play her looks to her advantage. She is by no means a girly girl. She has no problem speaking her mind and correcting anything she feels is wrong. She has a can do attitude that makes her a fearsome person, though she has a kind heart and ca often times be seen singing little songs in her spare time. Not much seems to phase this girl, insults and other such things seem to just roll off as she just waves and offers a smile.
Though endanger her friends or loved ones and she will fiercely rip you to shreds. Growing up on ships she has a deep seated love for the water and the Pokemon who live there. She is a bold battler attacking head on with fierce and powerful attacks. She one day dreams of being a water type gym leader. She can tend to be a bit in your face when it comes to her opinion on certain things, like how people treat Pokemon. She believes that all Pokemon are your partner, not there to serve us master and slave.
Though she tends to be a bit sarcastic, she is extremely friendly and playful. She is the easy type to approach with a generally cheerful out look on life. She doesn't see a reason to hold onto bad feeling because you never know when your days are numbered.She honestly hates clothing and usually can be found stripping down to her bikini if the weather is to hot.
Growing up in Slateport city, her father a researcher obsessed with water type Pokemon and studying every single one of them that lived in the ocean. Her mother and her looked exactly alike. They were happy and spent much of her first three year on land. Her father working in the Slateport Museum to make money. When she turned three though her father and mother decided it was time for them to hit the oceans and begin researching again. But at this time it was also when she acquired Ranka the Seel pup from her father, and Valkyrie the young Absol from her mother. Both had already been named by her parents as their present to her. They were to keep her company while her parents were busy with work.
The girl and two Pokemon became fast friends in the days while the family packed for their research voyage. She wasn't quite sure what it meant, but she knew it meant she would be leaving her home in Slateport for a very long time on a big boat. She was surprisingly okay with that as other children found her weird with her obsession with water type Pokemon just like her father, and the love for history from her mother. She often could be found with her nose buried in her fathers books looking at the different Pokemon and everything.
Soon after leaving Slateport Gidget grew bored and began to play pranks on the ships crew with her Pokemon. The crew soon found out if they told her what they were doing and offered to let her and the two Pokemon help, it kept the girl from causing trouble. The ship only anchored in ports or cities when they needed fuel or to replenish their supplies. Strangely the young girl was okay with this. A year passed and they lived happily on the ship with her mother beginning to give her daily school lessons, and teaching her about Pokemon. It wasn't long until their happy life was ripped apart.
A storm hit them while they were out in the deep ocean. She was ten years old at the time. They did everything they could even her and her Pokemon fought to help get the ship secured. But a wave nearly as large as the long haul research vessel, swept it from the side. Ranka and Valkyrie kept her from being swept off and her father had been tied to a railing as well as her mother. But the Rope must have been weak as snapped and they never saw her mother again. Not letting the loss of his wife stop him, he continued his research, all the while searching for his lost wife.
It seemed that Gidget had lost both of her parents that night in the storm. As her father became totally obsessed with his research, as well as searching for his lost wife. He just couldn't seem accept that she was gone. He began ignoring Gidget and she soon busied herself in his research with the water Pokemon, but she had seemed to accept it more deeply that her mother was never going to come back. She was much stronger than she really looked. She put herself into training Ranka and Valkyrie and at the age fifteen her father returned her to Slateport City where he enrolled her in school, and left her in the house they once lived in with her mother.
Essentially her father abandoned her entirely. So growing up at quick pace, she learned how harsh the world could be. Quietly she lived in Slateport city with her partners, working on Ranches on the outskirts of town, her body become not only sea hardened but work hardened as well. A year ago after much thought she decided it was finally best to go and live her dreams of being a Gym Leader. She had heard of Veria region where she could start over completely new. She found a house and bought it with her savings. She sent word to her father a few months ago with only a single ling response of, "have fun."
After her final decision she sent her belongings to her new home in Alterna City.
Pokedex Name: Absol Nickname: Valkyrie Gender: Female Ability: Super Luck Moveset: Perish Song | Night Slash | Razor Wind | Pursuit
Agility - Major (2) - Growing up on the ship she had learned to be quite nimble on her feet. Having to learn how to move with the rocking of the ship in a storm, or dodging rolling items that weren't tied properly. Running along the railings and roofs of the cabins at night to enjoy the beauty of the stars alone. As well as years spent swimming in the open oceans. Her slim well toned and sleek body make for her ability to move quickly through most any terrain.
Strength - Minor (1) - Her strength stems from her years spent, on her fathers ships working in the engine rooms helping keep the ship running. Moving and lifting heavy engine parts, or loading and unloading heavy cargo. Her body had become quite the sleek and well tuned machine. Though she is stronger than she appears, this is due to her lean figure from years of swimming in the strong currents of the open ocean.
The day was early only about nine thirty or ten in the morning. The sun was already well on its way across the sky, making the day quite warm. The water below the streets glimmered beautifully, you could see near any Pokemon playing below the waters surface. Today started the appeals round of the festival, that she had been invited to host along side her new friend Honoka and pretty famous guy apparently. Not that she really kept with who was famous until recently. Though that was only the Coordinator circuit.
His name was Josh and he had a remarkably adorable Pikachu named Lightening. She had to admit she loved Dust her little Dedenne and she prided herself in her black Shinx Tesla. Truth be told though she absolutely loved Pikachu. She had always fawned over the pair her parents kept for breeding. Pulling herself from her thoughts the girl looked over into her reflection in the shop window. For once with encouragement from her Pokemon she had gone against her style entirely.
Her strawberry blonde hair had been pulled back into a ponytail and held in place with a small braid over an elastic band. On the front of the ponytail was a black and gold lightening bolt shaped hair Barret. Not just her but her clothes, she wore a pair of black roman style sandals, and black jean shorts over a lightening themed bikini bottom, and a a matching halter style top that showed off her busty upper body and lovely slim waist.
A soft sigh left her rosy lips as she leaned against the railing behind her. Her golden eyes looked down to the Shinx with the pure black pelt and bright blue eyes. "Tesla did you and Scorpio really have to dress me like this. I mean I know I'm supposed to help judge a contest and all but I am completely lost." She whined to the electric feline.
A heavy sigh left her lips as she pushed off the railing. She had decided to ask the next person she saw if they knew how to find the festival grounds. With that she started walking down the street passing shops. It wasn't long before she spotted someone. With a sweet smile she trotted up behind them and gave a soft smile. "E... Excuse me, I'm really sorry to bother you but I seem to be lost. Can you tell me how to find the Summer Festival grounds?" She asked sweetly as Tesla trotted up beside her. He wasn't keen on his trainer talking to strangers but it had to be done. They were completely lost.
