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~

Roxanne looked around the wide open prairie. A cave nearby was full of just as much promise. Focused on training and only training, she headed out into the field. After consulting a hefty priced and sized guidebook focused solely on Pokemon evolution, she made a list of who to bring with on this expedition. Only Pokemon that evolved with battles were packed with her for this outing. Not even her starters were with her. Was it dumb only bringing ill trained Pokemon with her? There was only one way to find out and that was to head out and see what happens.

Like a sign of how bad her idea was, a Nidoking appeared. He roared at her and thrashed around. Gulping nervously, she sent out the first Pokemon to come to mind. A small black fox appeared and barked at the Nidoking. The Nidoking thrashed some more and Roxanne, panic increasing, ordered Foul Play. In a dark flash, Gaiden smacked the bipedal rhino Pokemon. It was not expecting such power from so tiny a foe and seemed dazed by the attack. Or maybe all that thrashing about had something to do with that. It fell to the ground with a loud thump.
Gaiden leaped into action and played foul once more, dodging the beast's Horn Drill. It roared and swiped at the small fox. But the tiny tricky fox was far too fast for the lumbering giant to be able to get a hold of, no matter how much he tried. With a final feint attack, the giant beast was felled. Nervously, Roxanne tossed an Ultra Ball at the behemoth, recalling how Dawnson was talking about hoping to save up to be able to afford a Nidoking some day. This should be a lovely gift for him.
Battle Breakdown Nidoking appeared and used thrash. Gaiden(Zorua) used Foul Play after Nidoking used Thrash. Gaiden dodged Horn Drill then used Foul Play again then Feint attack.

Cringing as she picked up the ball with the now captured Nidoking, she didn't have a moment to breathe when not one but TWO bears appeared. Well, sort of. One was clearly ANOTHER one of those sloth things that have been stalking her all month. She couldn't help but feel that it was just too creepy of a coincidence. Why were they so attached to her? It was just so weird. She realized that the bear rocking back and forth was actually a Pokemon her teammate was looking for. Sighing, she sent Gaiden back in his ball and sent out a curled red bug. The bug stretched herself out and looked at the dizzying bear with faint interest.
Roxanne ordered a Bug Bite and the Venipede obliged, biting the Spinda's leg. The Spinda appeared to be psyching himself up and Roxx ordered a Poison tail at the bear. Purple ooze was jabbed into the bear and it yelped in pain as the poisonous goo leeched into him. Roxanne ordered a Venoshock and the Spinda fell in a heap, legs still twitching mindlessly. He spasmed helplessly as the poison took effect and Roxanne tossed a Pokeball at the well-weakened bear.
And now for the creeper. Something about the Slakoth was a little different, however. Like a specific gleam was in his eyes. He slammed his entire body into Cuddles and Cuddles bit him with her bug pinchers and jabbed at him with her poisonous tail. The Slakoth rolled off, not expecting such a reaction. Even after seeing what the bug had done to the bear not even a moment ago.
Roxanne guessed that the Slakoth really was that slow. Taking her chances, Roxanne ordered another Bug Bite and the Slakoth seemed to pause and look at her. With those big questioning eyes as Cuddles bit down on him. Without a word, Roxanne ushered the bug away from the sloth. The sloth looked at her like she was an old friend or something. It gave her the creeps and she ordered Cuddles to Venoshock the Slakoth in his place. No longer staring at her, she tossed a Pokeball at him as well, well disturbed by this walk in the woods.
Spinda Battle- Cuddles(Venipede) used Bug Bite. Spinda used Psych Up. Cuddles used Poison tail then Venoshock after poisoning the Spinda.
Slakoth battle- Slakoth used Bodyslam. Cuddles used Bug Bite and Poison Tail. After a weird pause, Cuddles used Venoshock.

A yungoos appeared and Roxanne directed Cuddles to Bug Bite the mongoose. The mongoose responded with a Pursuit to little effect. Shaking off the attack, she ordered Cuddles to use Rock climb and with that, the Yungoos seemed to start to rethink what it was doing. The following poison tail made up its mind and it fled quickly. With that, Roxanne turned to leave when a noise stopped her. Turning, a vaguely brown Vigoroth appeared. Almost like from a wormhole.
The clouring was too even to be dirt. It must be a shiny Pokemon like she heard about on the news. And it was of the line of Pokemon she knew could get her some decent profit. Roxanne ordered a Poison tail from the Venipede and saw the monkey grow weak and start to cough. It tried to use Focus Punch, but the Venipede was fat following her command to Venoshock the beast. It made a move to try and take something from the bug but earned a bite in return. Falling to its knees, it was leaning heavily on its paws. She threw a Greatball and waited.
Battle Breakdown Yungoos battle- Venipede/Cuddles used Bug Bite. Yungoos used Pursuit. Cuddles used Rock climb then Poison tail.
Vigoroth battle- Cuddles/Veniped used Poison tail, poisoning Vigoroth. Vigoroth attempted Focus Punch, failed because of Venoshock. Cuddles used Bug bite to weaken enough for capture.

The Vigoroth captured, a small purple rodent appeared from the brush. Whiskers wiggling, the rodent was looking for food but found a battle instead. Roxanne sent the bug back to her ball and sent out a bunny. Bon bon did a twirl as he was released from the ball. The purple rodent made a chittering noise, challenging the Buneary. With a happy bouncing gait, the Buneary approached the Rattata. With a sharp command, Roxanne told the curled eared bunny to Jump Kick the Pokemon rodent. The rodent watched as he first leaped up and then with a crack landed on the Rattata.
It squawked and snapped at the bunny. The bunny managed to avoid the large snapping teeth and bounced back from the spritely Rattata. Roxanne directed a Quick attack and Bon Bon obliged. The rat went tumbling and tried to pick himself up to little effect. The rodent was just too weak to get up. With a confident twirl, Roxanne lobbed a Pokeball at him.
Battle Breakdown Bon Bon(Buneary) used Jump Kick. Rattata used Super Fang. Bon Bon used Quick attack. 1 evolution point Buneary

With an angry hiss, appeared a Zangoose. Still pumped from battling the Rattata, Roxanne commanded Bon bon to Jump Kick the cat like Pokemon. With a gleeful chirping like noise, Bon Bon leaped into the air. The Zangoose looked around for the bunny that had just disappeared from her view. With a sharp cry, the Buneary landed on the cat, foot first. The cat squawked in pain and swung her claws at the bunny. The bunny managed to dodge due to Roxanne's warning and with an offended scream Bon Bon used Frustration on the scarred cat. Having the easy target prove itself not so easy, the Zangoose left.
Battle Breakdown Bon Bon(Buneary) used Jump Kick. Zangoose used Slash. Bon Bon used Frustration.

The mongoose defeated, Roxanne barely had a moment to breathe when five Nidorino's came forth. One flicked his head back, clearly the leader. Even without that fact, he was the one that stood out of the quintet. His eyes were dark orbs, unreadable even in the brightest of lights. Spines tousled carelessly, he carried himself with a confidence that didn't match his appearance. It was clear that he was the eldest, bags under his eyes and a roughness to his jaw from years of battles.
Gulping nervously at the group, Roxanne sent out Anakin and Nyakyun. The Sandshrew looked at the Meowth and shrugged indifferently at the battle ahead. Like an awkwardly handsome Nidorino would bother him that greatly. Or the Meowth, really. Roxanne ordered a Slash to be aimed at a Nidorino that was playing with a pine cone. Or was eating it. It was hard to tell from the angle current. Regardless, Nyakun's attack knocked the cone from his mouth.
Upset, the Nidorino charged towards the cat and with glee, the cat jumped over the charging beast and slashed him with darkened claws. The Nidorino stumbled and fell over. Taking his place was another Nidorino, one that honestly didn't seem to even care to battle but was being forced into it. Roxanne commanded Fury Swipes and Nyakun scratched the indifferent Nidorino across the face numerous times. Before the beast could summon the motivation to strike back, she was already onto a separate Nidorino that was sniffing a flower nearby. A Feint was used to lead the distracted Nidorino next to the one now stuck in a hole.
The group was tightly packed together now, as Roxanne had planned from the beginning. Anakin took a step forward and the earth quaked beneath the pack. One managed to avoid the initial eruption of earth, seeing what was happening before it had a chance to happen. He was taken out by the second wave, knocked into the offputtingly handsome Nidoran with great force. The group didn't stand a chance against Nyakun and Anakin's strategy.
Looking at the now dazed and defeated Nidorino group, Roxanne felt it a poor decision to leave the Nidorino group to cause trouble around the area. Personally, Roxanne was not aware of anybody in need or want for Nidorinos. That was something she is going to have to figure out, Roxanne was afraid. She tossed out five Great balls, hoping she will find a home for the quintet soon.
Battle Breakdown Nyakun(Meowth)- Used Slash on Nido(A). Nido(A) tried to charge Nyakun. Nyakun dodged and used Night Slash. Nido(A) tumbled to side. Nido(B) joined the battle and Nyakun used Fury Swipes thenFeint on Nido(C).
Anakin(Sandshrew)- Used Earthquake. Nido(D) crashed into Nido(E) and the group was defeated.
Evolution points total- 5 2.5 for Nyakun 2.5 for Anakin
