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 Pokemon Chaku (where SG is staff) 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~

Finally getting around to doing this
Empathy (Major) - Though this ability is somewhat foreign (and yet strangely familiar) to her, Michi is able to read and recognize emotions of others to a certain extent. As of right now, she isn't able to 'turn off' the power and tends to stay away from places where there will be a lot of people. Strong emotions are easier to read than small, or minor feelings though given enough time, Michi may be able to accurately tell what these are even. However, as of right now she is rather easily swayed by strong surface emotions and will reflect what she is feeling back at the other person like it is her own. She can, to a certain extent, recognize that there is no reason she should be feeling a certain emotion and stop reflecting others, but it is not something she can always do. It is also easier to recognize a foreign emotion if it is negative rather than a positive one, simply because Michi would rather be happy than sad or angry.
Faller– Coming from a medieval fantasy setting, Michi is not at all familiar with what Pokemon are or any of the aspects of this universe. Technology is very new to her and is something she may not fully master without patience and the help of someone willing to teach her. It will take some time before Michi fully understands what Pokemon are and what her place is in this universe now.
Empathy (Major) - Michi is capable of experiencing the emotions of others within 100 square feet (30 square meters). She is also able to focus their attention on specific individuals and focus on their emotions exclusively, separate out those emotions from their own, and shut her power down entirely. Though she is still growing, Michi will eventually be able to distinguish between five or six people or Pokemon with this clarity at once, anything more than this gives her a headache or gets too confusing. Michi is able to sway emotions to a minor degree fairly easily such as easing others or inspiring happier emotions. Pushing for anything more than a 'nudge' in the right direction however is draining and takes more focus to accomplish. She is able to calm a startled Pokemon or soothe a worried friend with very little effort, though often this will only set them on the path to calming down as opposed to being a full cure. Calming an entire room of panicking individuals or stirring a room to riot, on the other hand, is possible but incredibly taxing, requiring active focused effort that may cause headaches and generally requiring time to rest afterward.
