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~

After their date, Roxanne came back. Later in the week, of course. The day was lovely and she enjoyed the festival. But she knew he was too busy for the rest of the week and she just had to see more of the stars and the celestially themed festivities. She had never seen such a lovely event and just couldn't get enough. Something about the whole event made her nostalgic. But for what, she wasn't sure. And that is why she went back. Not because she wanted more star ice cream. Well, not only that. But it was a reason and this time, she brought her own Pokemon. Her sandshrew beamed next to her, a rock in his hands. And his mouth. She could only pet him as he chewed on the "tasty" treat.

Roxanne looked at the alien that just appeared and sent Anakin back into his Pokeball. A fellow Coordinator was looking for this....Pokemon so she felt obligated to catch the strange thing. It was floating around, not really doing much so she sent out Nyakun. The Meowth meowed happily and Roxanne commanded her to Night Slash the alien before the Meowth had a chance to start talking. Something about the cat's dialect just rubbed her the wrong way. The less she heard, the better off they both would be, honestly.
The alien shot a beam of psychic energy and the cat yowled in pain. The cat bounced back and slashed the alien again, and it hit a nearby tree. Taking her chance while she had it, she tossed a Pokeball at the disoriented alien Pokemon and crossed her fingers.
Battle Breakdown Nyakun(Meowth) used Night Slash. Elgyem used Psybeam. Nyakun used Night slash. 1 evo point Capture attempt Elgyem

A red orb floated by and seemed attracted to Roxanne's ears. Her attempts to get the Pokemon to leave her be to enjoy herself, Roxanne sent out the only Pokemon she could think would defend her from the weird star-shaped Pokemon. The Vigoroth took one look at the star bothering her trainer and latched onto the star, using covet to grab off the Pokemon's bits and pieces of rocks on it. The Minior seemed to try and stealth away, attempting to distract the ape with rocks. The ape was too focused on her goal and punched the soft Pokemon in what appeared to be its face.
With a scream, the jelly star fell to the ground with none of the grace of a shooting star. The Vigoroth finally hopped off, after smacking the Minior with one more rock and approached her trainer. With a concerned pat directed to the ape's head, Roxanne felt a pang of guilt. She had to catch the Minior now, after what her Vigoroth did to it. With that, she tossed a Pokeball at the defeated Pokemon.
Battle Breakdown Ethera(Vigoroth) used Covet. Minior used Stealth Rock. Ethera used Focus Punch.

The cute little Pokemon that popped out of the bush was just like the one Harper had. Roxanne did think the Gothita was a darling Pokemon and kind of wanted one for her own collection, to tell the truth. And this was the perfect opportunity to get one, now wasn't it? She sent out Jitters, who even as a cocoon jittered around quite a bit before settling for battle. The Gothita stared at her and Roxanne commanded a Bug bite, a move that should be strong against the tiny gothic Pokemon. It cried out indignantly, proving Roxanne right. The tiny Gothita slapped Jitters. She commanded another bite and Jitters obliged.
The Gothita slapped Jitters twice and Jitters bit the hand that slapped her. Not wanting to watch this go on for much longer, Roxanne tossed a Poke ball towards the desired pokemon.
Battle Breakdown Jitters(Spewpa) used Bug Bite. Gothita used Double Slap. Jitters used Bug bite. Gothita used Double slap. Jitters used Bug Bite.

Roxanne twirled with the ball in her hands, excited when her celebration was interrupted. By a strange little alien Pokemon. But this one looked like it was wearing a robe and a helmet. She put the ball in her bag as she looked it over. That was most certainly a Ralts. And it seemed kind of spacey, oddly fitting for the festival. Not sure what else to do, she urged Jitters forward to attack the alien. Jitters went over and bit the Pokemon and it yelped, dragged out of it's trance like state. While it was still distracted, Roxanne commanded a Tackle, knocking the Pokemon flying back. It managed to stop itself from crashing into a bush and seemed to be preparing an attack. It wouldn't have a chance to execute the attack, Jitters Bug biting her once more. Beaten, the Ralts fled.
Battle Breakdown Jitters(Spewpa) used Bug Bite. Ralts yelped. Jitters used Tackle. Ralts used Future Sight. Jitters used Bug Bite, ending battle.

A screech was heard and Roxanne turned. Her cheeks flared as she realized what it was. A dark blue Gothitelle, looking for her child. That Roxanne had just beaten and captured. Clearly angry at her, Roxanne sent Jitters back to her ball and sent out Howls. The Gothitelle sent a blast of psychic energy at the dark pooch and looked down right insulted when it had no effect. Roxanne commanded a crunch and Howls leaped and grabbed a hold of the Gothitelle with his teeth and crunched down. It shrieked again and slapped at the offending pooch. He let go and howled before leaping over and Crunching her again.
The tiny puppy took a lot of energy out of the Pokemon rather fast, much to both of their surprise. The Pokemon then started to weep and Roxanne felt something tug at her heart. Like, she understood the feeling of missing her children. But she didn't have any. She shook her head at the disconcerting thought and tossed an Ultra Ball at the Gothitelle, hoping to reunite the two.
Battle Breakdown Gothitelle used Psyshock, had no effect on Howls(Poochyena). Poochyena used Crunch. Gothitelle used Double Slap. Howls used Howl then Crunch.
2 evolution points(evolved form take down) 1 capture attempt Gothitelle

She picked up the Ultra Ball and something sticky touched her. She groaned at the mushroom that the ball landed on. Then she realized it was a Pokemon and leaped back. She sent out the Gothita and the Pokemon gave her the stink eye. She pointed at the Morelull and a small smile appeared on the Gothita's face. From what she could tell from the ball's gathered data, Roxanne commanded the Gothita to use Psyshock on the mushroom. Gleefully, the gothic Pokemon shot a purple wave at the mushroom. The mushroom shot out a burst of spores but none hit the Gothita. Getting into the swing of things, Roxanne commanded another Psyshock. The second Psyshock sent the mushroom scrambling away and Roxanne beamed at the little Pokemon's first win.
Battle Summary Harper(Gothita) used Psyshock. Morelull missed with Spore. Harper used another Psyshock.
