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 Pokemon Chaku (where SG is staff) 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~

Elayne had heard of the aquasphere several times before and had always thought that it would be fun to visit sometime. Water Pokemon were some of her favorite types and it would give her a chance to maybe let some of her water types out to play. With a couple aquatic balls in hand, she was rather excited to see exactly was in store for her in the famed aquasphere. It was clear from her attire that she had planned on getting wet and well, it wasn't like there was going to be anyone around to see her. Dressed in her tankini with little more than a long white overshirt to cover her, Elayne approached the water and released Conrad the Vaporeon along with River the Poliwag to join her in the water before diving in.
Perhaps it wasn't the best way to try and attract water Pokemon to her but Elayne didn't really care. Maybe they would want to come and play with her. She was here to make friends after all, and if other water Pokemon wanted to come and see what all the hubbub was about, they were more than welcome to. As more of an after thought, Elayne released Gemini, her Milotic to hold onto rather than tread water all the time. He seemed pleased to see this party of sorts and cooed, nuzzling Elayne while the other two started a splash battle. This was nice. Yeah, it was, wasn't it. Especially when it was so warm out that day.

While Conrad and River played nearby, Elayne caught sight of a Shellos that seemed to be distressed. It looked like it had gotten too deep into the water. Urging the Milotic over towards the distressed Shellos, Elayne got closer to see if she could help the poor thing. River decided she didn't want to be left behind after all and quickly followed after her trainer. The Poliwag wasn't near as cautious as Elayne was and bounced right up to the Shellos, eliciting a surprised cry from the Shellos as a result.
Elayne couldn't help but laugh softly at the Poliwag's actions while her Vaporeon apologized for the surprise. The Shellos didn't seem to mind too much but wasn't going to stick around too long. River seemed a little sad at seeing the Shellos leave so soon but quickly got distracted again when Gemini blew bubbles at her. The Poliwag giggled and swam around happily. Well, it seemed the Shellos had other things to do. Maybe there were other Pokemon out here that would be more fun to play with.

At some point, Elayne had gotten tired of playing with River and trying to keep up with her seemingly endless energy. Resting on Gemini, she was enjoying relaxing for the time being while Conrad tried to keep his eye on the rambunctious Poliwag. River was oblivious to the Vaporeon for the time being however because she had found an odd reflection and it didn't mimic her like usual. This was strange! Who knew a reflection could move on its own like that!
Elayne noticed was staring at the other Poliwag in awe and couldn't help but giggle. Well, wasn't that cute. It seemed River didn't realize she was staring at another Poliwag rather than her reflection. Eventually the other Poliwag got bored and went off on his own, leaving behind a very confused and distressed River. Conrad nuzzled her and distracted her with another splash battle but... heh, sometimes he worried about the little Poliwag himself.

Though the Poliwag had been cute, especially River's reaction to it, Elayne was looking for something a bit more special to add to the ranch. As distracted as she was with how Conrad was comforting River, Elayne almost missed the little pink thing that looked at her curiously. It was Gemini that saw the Luvdisc first and trilled warmly, drawing Elayne's attention to it as well. Huh? Oh, oh wasn't that a Luvdisc? How adorable. "Well, hello little one~,"Elayne said softly, sliding back into the water next to it. It seemed the motion caught Conrad and River's attention, bringing the Poliwag out of her slump of sorts.
The Luvdisc looked up at Elayne and shied away, not quite sure she wanted to be so close to the human but... she seemed nice? Then River and Conrad came over and the Luvdisc hid behind Elayne. Well, it seemed she was shy, maybe River wasn't the best Pokemon to greet her at first after all. "Hey now, it's alright. This is River, the Poliwag, and Conrad is the Vaporeon. Gemini is the Milotic behind you. They won't hurt you, I promise,"Elayne explained softly, smiling when Conrad approached the timid Luvdisc. The Vaporeon even put on a goofy smile, earning a soft chuckle from the Luvdisc.
River wanted to meet her new friend and swam forward, only to be pushed back by Conrad's tail each time. The Poliwag's determination and inability to realize what was happening earned a laugh from both Elayne and the Luvdisc. Well, River was something else, wasn't she? Either way, it seemed to set the Luvdisc at ease and eventually she listened to the Poliwag and told Conrad it was ok, she would play with them. That made River laugh with delight as she finally beat that strange current and tagged the Luvdisc before darting away. Well, well, it seemed they were playing a game of tag now?
It took the Luvdisc a few moments to realize what had just happened but quickly chased after Conrad to tag him instead. The Vaporeon laughed and swam away but for as small as she was, the Luvdisc was fast. He didn't stand a chance and soon started after River again. This game would go on for quite some time until even River was tired and had to be carried back to Elayne on Conrad's back. The Luvdisc seemed tired too but hmm... maybe she would let Elayne catch her? River would be returned when Elayne reached her pokeballs, bringing out a special ball to show the Luvdisc.
"Did you want to come with us, Luvdisc? We could have a lot more fun back home,"Elayne asked softly. Conrad cooed, splashing a little in encouragement. Yes, it would be a lot of fun! The Luvdisc looked a little uncertain at first but with Conrad's encouragement and even Gemini nudging her affectionately, she decided to go. It would be fun to see more than what was in the aquasphere anyway! Pressing the button, the Luvdisc disappeared into the ball, earning a smile from Elayne as she hugged the pokeball to her chest. Wait til Haiiro and Felis saw what she'd just gotten.

Not long after the Luvdisc was captured, another pink creature decided to surface and wave happily. Oh! There were people here and new Pokemon! That was cool~. Gemini cooed and nuzzled the new arrival. Everyone was welcome, even if this new Pokemon seemed like a squishy strawberry. Conrad welcomed the Frillish too who playfully splashed him in greeting, surprising the Vaporeon. After River had been returned, he hadn't been expecting another splash battle to resume but after the initial surprise he returned the greeting of sorts.
What would follow after that would be another splash battle that Elayne got caught in the middle of. Laughing at how silly the whole thing was, she kicked away from Gemini for a little only to get caught in a barrage of bubbles. Confused for a moment, Elayne tried to push the bubbles away only to dip under the surface. It was only briefly, but apparently the Frillish was so distressed by it that she picked up this dear human and held her close.
Elayne coughed briefly more from the surprise of it than anything and smiled at the worried Frillish. "Thank you, dear~, I'm fine though," Elayne replied calmly, her voice warm as she tried to reassure the Frillish. Gemini cooed and nuzzled Elayne, he'd been a little worried too. The Frillish wouldn't let her go immediately though and well, it seemed she had gotten quite attached? Huh, wonder why that was. "You're sweet, but you can let go, you know~."
The Frillish chirped in alarm and released him, flailing a bit while Elayne swam over to Gemini and sat on him. The Milotic chuckled and swam closer while Elayne pulled out a special pokeball. "Did you want to come with us? We'll have lots of fun, won't we?" Conrad and Gemini nodded in agreement while the Frillish looked uncertainly at both of them for a few moments. She seemed unsure but eventually nodded and pressed the pokeball. Yeah, it seemed going with them would be fun. Elayne grinned as the Frillish was pulled into the pokeball. That was enough for one day, wasn't it. Going home sounded good and well, she was rather tired.
"Let's go home, guys." Home wasn't that far away. They could go home and rest.
