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~

Average is a good word when it comes to Aspen. She's not too tall, not too short. She stands casually at 5'4", slender and appropriately endowed for someone of her stature. Her body is nothing much to look at. It's her face that draws the attention. Large green-brown eyes and a permanent smirky smile are framed by hastily restrained blue hair. Her hair begins long in the front and is cropped short in the back, forming a soft and subtle ryhawk. Her hair is always parted by a ribbon, which usually coordinates with her daily outfit.
Aspen's style, like her build, is fairly average. She can most often be seen in whatever clean clothes she happened to find on the floor of her bedroom, usually shorts and a flattering blouse. Bizarrely, she rarely wears shoes. There's no deep-seated explanation for this; she just doesn't like shoes. Aspen does a complete 180 when performing in a contest, trading her wrinkled daywear for dazzling sundresses and, of course, a matching ribbon. Sometimes, usually by the exasperated encouragement of the judges, she will wear dainty flats. But you can bet she's going to complain about it.
This may be listed in either paragraph or bullet format. If going for the bullet format, try to list an equal balance of positives and negatives; make sure your character is fleshed out!
In pure bullet format, a minimum of 10 traits is required. While 5 positive and 5 negative is "most balanced", a split of 4 and 6 in either direction is also fine, as is listing traits that are more neutral or mixed. When adding longer explanations and using bullets more as headers-- a mixture of paragraph and bullet formats-- less traits are required as each point is more likely to say more about the character than just the one word would have, but still try to make sure you tell us plenty about who they are.
How did they spend their early years? Were they rich, middle-class, or scraping through life? Be as concise and as specific as possible! If imports: how did they get to the region? Aim for at least three paragraphs, if you want to go for more, by all means!
Pokedex Name: e.g. Pikachu, Togepi (if they are an imported rare, please place this next to their name) Nickname: What they go by (leave blank if no nickname) Gender: Male / Female / Genderless Ability: (no HA) Moveset: 4 moves that can be naturally learned up to LV50 (+ 1 EM if GL)
Any Major or Minor skills you start with go here. You have up to 3 points to spend to start, but don't have to take them if you don't want to.
Please be sure to describe each skill! This skill description can be copy-pasted from the standard parameters in the Guidebook, or more personalized to describe how the character developed it, how they use it, and/or any deviation from the standard. (Ex: You might talk about how your character has developed their Agility as a dancer, or note that their Aura Sight can extend farther than normal at the cost of reduced clarity, etc.) You will need at least a few lines for each skill you choose whatever you decide, though.
This includes any talents that may fall outside of typical Skills that you couldn't fit elsewhere in the bio (such as being a gifted liar, a graceful dancer, or ex-military with combat training, etc), alternate identities, elaborations of anything you might need, or anything else worth mentioning.
If this is your first character, feel free to use a post from another site! If it's an import from another site, a post about your character from the previous region should be fine.
