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 Olida Region 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~

Luke fought to roll his eye at Jazz’s comment but gave a small shrug in response. “It’s interesting at least,” was what he’d give back. However, as the Shinx seemed to find something of deeper interest, Luke paused briefly. In the dim light it was hard to tell exactly what it was but…Hm? Luke blinked a little as Jazz spoke to him. “We can… keep going for now,” he assured very briefly reaching up a couple fingers to assure himself Spidey was still there. The Sewaddle was still there. Spidey had not moved, however, and Luke gave a small nod to himself. That was good.
Looking further down through the tunnel, Luke took in a slow breath. “Alright, let’s go…” Hopefully they wouldn’t find anything more terribly human down there considering the implications and all…. Well, he wasn’t going to think too much (he’d say as he proceeded to think too much).

Jazz smirked when Luke seemed to agree with her at least in part. So far the tunnels seemed to be a good place to find the 'booty' they were looking for, even if it was a little dark. When the question to continue was posed, Jazz could tell that Luke wasn't...exactly sure or maybe she was being paranoid again. Oh well, they'd come this far, might as well see what else there was to discover.
Once Luke relented, Jazz squeezed his hand lightly to reassure him that she was still there. "Wonder what else we'll find down 'ere,"Jazz stated, already surveying the area. There didn't seem to be too much in the area...just rocks, rocks, and oh joy... more rocks. Maybe they'd have better luck going deeper into the caves?
" 'ey Luke, doya have a fire Pokemon 'r summin on ya? The caves 'r getting pretty dark. I have one but..." Jazz asked, grimacing a bit even as she dug through her pockets for pokeballs she'd brought along with her. Hmm....no, no...there it is. The pokemon would be released, revealing a Charmander that yawned and...immediately hid behind Jazz's leg. Right, she'd forgotten how shy Drake was. Maybe he wasn't the best choice after all.
"Hey, c'mon now. Kovu's 'ere 'n 'e won't let nuthin' happen to ya," Jazz tried, patting the Charmander's head with her free hand. " 'sides, we're 'xplorin! Dontcha wanna find treasure?"she continued, smirking when the mention of treasure had Drake's eyes lighting up. With a sudden bout of courage, he decided to lead the party after all, anything for nice shinies!
Well...this could be interesting... at least they had more light?

Luke stopped walking as Jazz spoke. “Nah nothing with an open flame,” he explained watching as she released a Charmander of her own accord. That was… some light at least, but not nearly enough. Slowly lowering himself down, Luke set down the bag he’d been carrying and started to fish through its contents. He was… pretty sure there was a flashlight in here somewhere?
Finally finding the flashlight in question, Luke turned it on. Immediately the tunnel was brimming with more white light revealing the details of the walls and the ceiling in the process. It was only after the fact that Luke realized he could possibly have stirred up any number of Pokemon that had been resting there but… thankfully at least there were none immediately in the vicinity.
…Hm? Luke squinted and walked forward, flashlight in hand. Bending down to a rock embedded in the wall, Luke blinked briefly before stepping back. “Jazz come look at this,” he called. "It looks to be a fossil." He already had one from this adventure of sorts so... she should probably take it.

Luke's response had Jazz nodding as she released the Charmander. It was...hard to convince Drake to listen to her but at least the promise of treasure was enough to make him listen. Still, even with the light it was hard to see... maybe she could-... And then Luke brought out a flashlight. Yeah, that was a lot more light and it made Jazz feel a lot better about traversing deeper into the tunnels.
When Luke seemed to find something, Jazz knelt next to him and ran a hand over the wall. "Neat! It sure looks like one. How're we gonna get it out though?"Jazz asked, looking around to see what she could use to get it out of the wall. Well... maybe if she had something sharp or something like a pick. Maybe a stalagmite? Yeah...that might work, especially if it was sharp enough.
"Hey Kovu, use Thunder Fang on that Stalagmite,"Jazz said, gesturing to the sharp looking rock. Kovu looked a little alarmed but eventually bit the side of the rock, managing to break off the tip of it. "Good job!"Jazz praised, grabbing the broken stalagmite and trying to remove the fossil from the wall. It took a while for Jazz to manage it, but eventually she had the fossil in her hand. "Got it!"Jazz called out victoriously, smirking at Luke, "Watcha think it'll turn into?"

While Jazz was starting a strange way to excavate the fossil (couldn’t she have just had Kovu bite it or something?), Luke found himself looking around again slowly. What caught his singe eye was not a fossil, however, but something much shinier nearby. Squinting a little uncertainly, Luke wandered over to it. Bending down and fishing it up, he blinked upon realizing what it was. “What’s…--“ He almost asked what something like that was doing down here but was then reminded of all the things they had found already, all the weird treasures someone had left behind.
He frowned a little softly but decided to keep it for now. Something like this had more practical use in evolution and whatever else. Perhaps he could even use it in research if he was curious enough. That or….. well a Scizor would be nice if he could find a breeder or something of the like.
