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~
With a performance coming up that the pair had decided to enter, Izumi had been organizing a script of sorts that demanded the help of certain Pokemon. Seeing as she wasn't making any efforts to go catch said Pokemon though, this meant that Josh, of course, had to go and do the work. He had chosen Old Pahala as the place to start his search after hearing rumours that the Pokemon in particular that he was searching for was located here. Taking a deep breath, Josh would nod his head as he would step in and begin to look around, hoping that perhaps the Pokemon he was searching for would be nearby...
Enemy Lunatone Moveset: Stone Edge, Cosmic Power, Psychic, Hypnosis
Enemy Solrock Moveset: Flare Blitz, Solar Beam, Stone Edge, Confusion
A Delibird would suddenly fly down, with what seemed to be a far bigger sack than Josh remembered their kind having... Interested, he would stop as the Delibird would land in front of him, pulling some assortments out and handing them to him.
"Oh... Uh, thank you"
The Delibird would let out a "Deli!" before handing him a note. Curious, Josh would begin to read.
"For whomever this may reach,
This Delibird has finished it's rounds delivering presents for me, and thus I have decided to return it to the wild. As these Delibird have become very special to me while they have been working for me, it would mean the world to me if you would be able to give my dear Delibird a loving home. Do be warned, some of them are spunky, and may wish for a battle to test your strength if they sense you are a Trainer of fighting spirit! Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho!
Merry Christmas! Santa Claus"
Josh had to blink a few times when he had finished reading, before noticing the Delibird getting into stance. "Well... This wasn't what I figured would happen today. Alright Dels, you're on" Josh would remark with a grin. But before they could begin, suddenly a Solrock and Lunatone would descend, attacking with two Stone Edges, one per. The lot would jump back from it, and Josh noted they likely weren't happy about the noise. Regardless, it looks like they were in for a fight.
"Go, Ein! Gunner!"
Josh would bring out his Kadabra and Horsea. The Horsea would float a small ways above the ground... Could it always do that? No matter.
"Gunner use Hydro Pump! Ein use Psycho Cut!"
Gunner would fire a Hydro Pump at the Solrock, while the Lunatone would have to deal with the Kadabra attacking with Psycho Cut. The Hydro Pump would hit dead on but the Lunatone would dodge the Psycho Cut and attack with Stone Edge once more. "Dodge it, Ein!" Josh called to the Kadabra as Ein would float to the side to avoid it, before Josh would call out "Psychic!" to the Kadabra, who would attack once more. This time the attack would deal damage, and Josh would call "Hydro Pump, again!" to Gunner, though this time the attack would miss the Solrock and hit the Lunatone.
Delibird would throw a Gift at the Solrock, healing it.
"Hey!" Josh called to the Delibird. "Just who's side are you on?" He called as the Delibird would then throw a Gift at Gunner, the present suddenly exploding as part of the Present attack, and dealing damage. The Horsea would angrily turn and use Dragon Pulse, sending the Delibird flying and crashing into the other two. As the three would begin to fight amongst themselves, Josh knew it was time to wrap this up.
"Psychic!" Josh called to the Kadabra, who would use Psychic as it would begin to hold up all three of their opponents. Josh knew it'd only work for a short time... "Hydro Pump!" Josh would command to the Horsea, who would attack with Hydro Pump quickly, hitting all three while they were immobilized. "Psycho Cut!" Josh called to the Kadabra, as Ein would leap into the air just as the three would be removed of their bonds, before attacking with one Psycho Cut, then another and another. One Psycho Cut, two Psycho Cuts, three Psycho Cuts! The three would fall, and Josh would toss Pokeballs at all three, though while the sun and moon would be sucked inside, the Delibird would bat it away.
2 points for Kadabra.
The Horsea wasn't letting that go, and a Dragon Pulse would suddenly hit the Delibird without warning. As it flew into the air, Josh would pick up the Pokeball and toss it at the Delibird again...
