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~

Niso's response and the way he was taking Galant so lightly had Jazz deadpanning, "Dude, that's not cool. Yer Mimikyu clearly doesn't wanna be out. I can't always control Galant 'n tho I know 'e won't hurt humans, 'e tends to like to challenge Pokemon jis fer fun. e'en when they dun wanna. Jis, if ya dun care 's fine but c'mon," he scolded briefly before heading down to the bathroom. The less he had to look at Niso right then, the better. " 'n as fer the arm, ain't gonna happen. 'sides, you'll jis grow a new one anyway so 's a waste o' my time."
Making that arm had been a monumental task after all and Jazz knew very well that he wouldn't have been able to do it without Indi. He should probably look into what med school and the like cost now that he thought about it. Maybe if he didn't have to depend so heavily on Indi he'd be able to do something like that all the time. That would be awesome, wouldn't it. "Mario Kart? Sounds cool, I have a few fighting games myself. Then der's teh cool stuff like Halo, Assassin's Creed, 'n Skyrim. Gotta a collection but haven't had time to play 'em lately."
Now that he was at the bathroom sink, Jazz pulled out one of his smaller screwdivers and started pulling the pocket knife apart. Considering it was more of a swiss army knife than anything else, it took a lot longer to take apart than he thought. No matter, it was worth making sure that the knife would work well and wouldn't rust if the blood got inside. Hearing Niso actually say Sera was technically available made Jazz drop one of the smaller parts of the knife, swearing under his breath as he picked it up again. Thank Arceus it hadn't fallen down the drain... actually, he should probably plug the sink. Yeah.
"Seriously? Yer jis fine wid lettin' 'nyone fuck yer girl?" Jazz sputtered, looking at Niso a bit cynically. He knew that Nik and Orion had sort of an open relationship since Mia was a thing. But for Niso to actually go and offer Sera to him like that? Jazz didn't exactly know anyone that would go around offering the one they loved to someone else. "I mean, Sera's hawt 'n all 'n 's cool dat ya trust 'r but. If I loved someone, I wouldn't jis offer 'em to anyone, yunno?"
Turning back to the sink, Jazz started to carefully clean each individual piece. It took longer than he thought it should but before too long the knife was back in working order. Pocketing the knife, Jazz put his hands in his hoodie pockets before shrugging, "Course 's none o' my business so you do you, I guess. Doya wanna play one o' the games? Betcha I kin kick yer ass~,"Jazz teased a bit, smirking a bit too confidently. It would be a nice change of pace to play one of his games again, even if it was with Niso.
『Uuuuuugh FINE』 Niso leaned down and picked up Mimikyu, plopping the Pokemon atop his head, the zoroark clad little Pokemon balancing for a moment before settling in and grabbing Niso's hair so it didn't fall. 『There, now if the Doublade wants a fight, he has to get through me first, unless we get an apple on the head archery situation going』 The Mimikyu grumbled at that comment but he was certainly a lot comfier here. Riding the Roomba at home he enjoyed just generally being moved along while sitting atop something, plus a Doublade likely would get through Niso first, which put him in a safer position.
『You people and your Pokemon, such worrywarts』
Niso rolled his eyes and followed along at the idea of them playing a game, groaning at the mention of Assassin's creed. 『Uuuugh. That game's soooooo boring. I mean if you want a game about killing people just fucking go for it. Why have those shitty objectives of being stealthy and picking specific targets? Just go full blast and make a game about murdering everything』His absentminded complaints likely falling on uncaring ears, Niso leaned against the wall outside the bathroom, groaning louder as Jazz mentioned his offer.
『I said forget I said that I wasn't thinking....uuuugh...』He did not want Sera hearing he said that. He didn't think she'd mind since she'd know his intent behind it, but still. 『For starters, I'm saying people should date her, not sleep with her. I love hearing about her dates and stuff, I just...don't like those gross, disgusting, vile details of what happens behind closed doors...』There was a very clear sense of disgust, as if even thinking about the fact he found it disgusting was triggering enough to make a shiver run down his spine.『I just...she's nice, and I think she deserves as much love as possible, and it makes her happy to do what she likes, so why wouldn't I want people to shower her with love?』
Niso had genuinely no idea why that was a bad or unusual idea, wondering if he'd gotten some bad information in the past or something. He did however continue. 『Secondly, not offering her. Saying she's available, its up to HER if you're worth her time. She's not a Pokemon, I can't just loan her out or trade her away.』

Jazz smirked a bit when Niso whined at him and snickered when he saw how comfy the Mimikyu seemed to be on Niso's head. That was different but well, he was learning pretty quickly that Niso was random and that this might as well be his 'normal'. Whatever normal meant, heh. Shrugging a little at the complaint, Jazz snickered again when Niso complained about Assassin's Creed. "Ehhh, I don't know. 's mostly what I did back 'n Era. Minus the killing thing. Never done that 'n ain't gonna start. But ya might like Skyrim 'r Halo den unless ya wanna face off in Mario Kart."
The explanation about Sera made a lot more sense and... was actually pretty sweet. He really cares about her, huh. Well, he'd gotten that impression with what Niso had done to the building but hearing this was a lot more impactful than that little message. Though Jazz definitely got the impression Niso wasn't comfortable talking about sex. Huh, that was interesting. Given what he knew about Sera, how the heck did that fit in? "That's actually pretty cool o' ya. Never thought ya would have such a sweet side, heh. Though, gotta wonder if ya think the bedroom stuff is 'disgusting and vile' watcha doing with her?" Jazz asked, smirking a bit mischievously.
He didn't really expect an answer given how uncomfortable Niso seemed about it but whether he answered or not, Jazz would stretch and head back towards his room to grab the games he'd suggested before. The TV downstairs was bigger and would make Jazz more comfortable given it was easier to get away if Niso tried anything weird. Once he'd grabbed the cases, he waved them at Niso and gestured for him to follow. "C'mon, der's more den one way to kick yer ass~. Ya wanna try Mario Kart, Skyrim, 'r Halo first?"
Niso briefly wondered what Jazz was doing in Era to sound so similar to Assassin's creed but majorly just shrugged it off, adjusting the way he was leaning so Mimikyu didn't fall off and waiting for Jazz to be done with whatever they were doing in the bathroom, shrugging with a light smirk at Jazz's first few word, feeling good that he was apparently sweet, but jolting a little at what followed, furrowing his brow and speaking through grit teeth.
『She's an exception to the rule...』
All the same Niso continued to follow, albeit a little more grumpy in nature, following all the way to the TV downstairs. 『I think I'll go with...』He took the games in hand briefly and looked through them. The dragon on the skyrim cover briefly caught his attention, before he recalled Karlak was still missing and put it behind the other two cases, holding up Mario kart eventually given his lack of skill at shooters. 『I'll burst your balloons to oblivion』

Smirking a bit, Jazz watched Niso's reactions and might have felt a bit too pleased with himself when his hunch was confirmed. Well then, that was interesting. Not that he was about to pry or anything but it was still interesting regardless. Waving a hand in dismissal, Jazz shrugged a little."Hey, chill man. 's cool," he stated, grinning a bit before heading back downstairs to where the big entertainment center was.
While Niso looked over the games, Jazz got the system booted up and ready to play, tossing a controller over to Niso while he was at it. Kovu trailed behind him not too far away, not about to let Jazz out of his sight for very long. "Ya right! Yer going down!" Jazz laughed, grabbing the game and waiting for it to launch, "I beat the game so ya kin choose any character ya want. 'cept fer Link, Link is mine."
Pulling himself over the back of the couch, Niso sat on the back of it with his feet where his ass should have been, holding his hand out for a controller as the game booted up and they went into character select. 『Me too~ I even got all the car parts. You get a looooot of free time when you don't have school anymore...and no job of course.』 He smirked softly before turning eyes back to the screen, focusing up for the battle to come as he squeezed the controller between his hands, picking a rather mis-matched vehicle that looked ridiculous but had surprisingly good stats, topped with dry bones bowser as the driver.

Hearing that Niso had the game and had managed to unlock everything was actually pretty cool. Jazz grinned and fell backwards onto the couch, choosing a motorcycle that looked more streamlined and built for speed. Ok, it was more for looks and it did look an awful lot like the bike Mia had gotten him for Christmas. "Yeah, I bet. Don't play this game much anymore cuz of work. Keep getting wrapped up in more projects lately too," Jazz explained briefly before going through the track selection.
"Hmm, wanna start off easy? Get the hang of it then pick a harder track? Still gonna kick yer ass but it'll gimme a chance to remember teh controls 'n all." That and it'd show him a little of how Niso played so he could come up with a decent game strategy. Assuming Niso agreed, Jazz would pick one of the simpler tracks initially. Oh, right, there were coins in here too and mystery boxes. Yeah, he'd get the hang of this eventually. Good thing he couldn't crash this bike in the game heh. That would suck.
『Aaaah work. I don't get why people don't just rob a snobby noble and live off of that~』He of course was conscious enough to know that wasn't an option for really anyone but himself...maybe Marcie, but all the same it was more for him than Jazz, and he knew people needed jobs so just shrugged off his own comment. He snickered a little at the question of an easy track, rolling his eyes and smirking. 『I mean if you neeeeed the training wheels you can use 'em. You can even use the auto-drive function if you want~』 The auto drive being a series of extra settings you could use on the deluxe version that automatically accelerated, and made it impossible for you to go off the track, basically super easy mode for children playing the game.
Whatever the case he was genuinely fine with an easy track he was just teasing, but right from the start he was racing pretty well, kicking off on a perfect start and hitting a drift right around the inside of the first corner, leading pretty quickly for the first lap. 『So you live here apparently? You're not like, some 5th part of this weird Mia Vesta Nik Orion thing are you?』

At Niso's initial quip, Jazz rolled his eyes, shaking his head at how utterly ridiculous that sounded. "First off, I ain't no Robin Hood. Second, I like wut I do so 's nawt a bore. 'm a mechanic 'n Sinclair 'n help around Marceline's labs sometimes. 's purty cool." It let him make that arm for starters and the Sinclair job helped pay for the rest of the presents he'd gotten at Friendsmas. Even if that evening had been stressful in more ways than one.
Hhhh, and now Niso was egging him on about needing a refresher course. Alright, he couldn't help snickering a bit at that. "C'mon, 'm nawt a wimp. Jis been a while since I played. Nawt gonna take meh long ta git da hang of eht agin." Oh hell, Niso was already in the lead? Damn the kid was good. Well, ok he could do this. Well, at least he managed to hit that speed boost and yay for more coins.
The question had him missing quite a few coins and almost veering off course as he gave Niso a double take. Had he seriously just asked that? "Wut? 'rion is liek my older brother. Dat wud be jis weird and... wrong 'n Nik 's jis a friend. 'sides, 'm kinda over teh whole relationship thing. Dun need eht, 's easier dat way." For a lot of reasons. You didn't get hurt when there was no strings attached after all. "I'm jis living 'ere fer now iz all. Nawt much else to it."
