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~

Did you find something wrong in the spawn generator, either as a mod or via a spawn that a mod didn't catch before posting? Please put it here so SG can get it fixed!
Examples things to look out for include:
Misspelled names of Pokemon, moves, or abilities. (Certain moves that used to be one word but are now two, such as Bubblebeam / Bubble Beam, are intentionally spelled both ways and both are considered valid.)
Broken HTML tags. (Ex: "Charm/b>")
Pokemon having moves or abilities they shouldn't. (Some evos with low movepools are intentionally left with a few of their prevo moves to flesh them out more, but anything else should be reported.)
Useless-on-Horizons moves such as Trick and Switcheroo appearing on spawns; we tried to leave those out.
Images displaying incorrectly (Ex: a major gender difference not accounted for or an evo's name showing its prevo's image) or being fully broken.
Pokemon rolling Egg Moves they can learn by Level Up in that form. (Moves they can only learn naturally once evolved are valid to roll as Egg Moves in lower forms.)
Please be sure to include which Pokemon has the reported error. The info is stored per Pokemon, so one Pokemon knowing "Flaemthrower" doesn't mean all instances of Flamethrower are misspelled, and Bestow appearing on one Pokemon won't change that it's been left out of most/all others.

Roxanne Doppelganger - On which Pokemon? All the moves are input individually. So like, on moves that used to be one word but are now two, some say Bubblebeam and some Bubble Beam on different individual Pokemon.

I rolled a Diglett here that had the move Mud Bomb as both an Egg Move and Normal move. While it can learn it normally and as egg move in game mechanics, it seems a redundant mechanism by site mechanics and maybe needs an edit of move pool lists?
Regarding egg moves, as was explained in the announcement at launch, Pokemon not rolling a move as an egg move if they can learn it naturally is indeed the intended function of the generator, as it both risks duplicate moves and effectively wastes an EM roll on something that could be easily learned otherwise. If you notice any moves marked as Egg Moves that a Pokemon can learn normally, please report them even if the Pokemon didn't roll a duplicate with it.
Conversely, Pokemon that can only learn a move upon evolution should have those Egg Moves. For example, Fire Fang Poochyena is possible / intended to roll because even though Mightyena can learn it by level up, Poochyena can't, making EMs the only way to have that move in that stage specifically. For someone who doesn't wish to evolve a certain Pokemon, this may be desirable, in addition to potentially making it easier to train and possibly being good plot fodder. (Ex: Maybe ICly that Poochyena worked hard to learn Fire Fang early from the elders of her pack, or sees herself as a Fire-type at heart, etc.)
Just to explain in more detail how things are intended to roll.
To summon a mod, just let us know what you need along with a link to the appropriate thread if needed! To use items like Move Techs that don't have a thread involved, just let us know how many you're using so we can remove them from your inventory.
