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~

After Orion had given her the special new Delibird, Michi wanted to see if she could find another special bird. That and she heard there were sometimes really cool things hidden in the tunnels. Sunchaser had found her in the tunnels before but exploring them sounded like fun, especially since she knew they came out near the pokecenter in Alto. It would be nice to see Jayme again, maybe even ask him if he wanted to go treasure hunting with her sometime.
That would have to wait til later though. He seemed to be busy at the pokecenter after all and Michi didn't really want to bother him. Releasing Sunchaser at the entrance of the tunnels, Michi took a deep breath and walked in. This would be fun! With Sunchaser here she wouldn't get lost and there was more than enough light to keep from getting hurt or anything like that. Maybe they'd make some more friends, too!

Michi didn't walk very far in the tunnels before she saw what looked like a shadowy figure walking towards them. Red eyes grew wide as she more or less hid behind Sunchaser who nickered softly, trying to comfort her as best he could. The shadows on the wall looked more scary than anything else but as the figure approached, it appeared to be a Delibird. Breathing a sigh of relief, Michi giggled a little at her own silliness and waved to the Pokemon.
The Delibird waved back quickly and rummaged through her bag, pulling out what looked like a couple of marbles. Huh? Michi didn't know exactly what they were but they looked cool enough! Maybe she could find someone who wanted them later. "Oh, these are so cool! Thank you so much, Miss Delibird~," Michi mused, hugging the Delibird after pocketing the marbles. The Delibird was admittedly a little surprised at the hug but smiled and nodded before wandering off. She had more presents to deliver after all!
Waving goodbye to the Delibird, Michi smiled and walked deeper into the tunnels. It was a good thing that Sunchaser was with her, it was really nice to have light in the tunnels without needing a flashlight. "That was a nice surprise, she was really nice! Do you think that we'll meet more friends here?" No sooner had Michi asked this when a bright blast of light attracted the duo's attention. That... didn't look good. The pinkette didn't waste time before running up ahead to find an adorable Spritzee twirling admist a beautiful array of sparkles. Had that blast been from her? It was hard to believe that such a smol Pokemon could have caused something like that. Of course, judging by the hole in the wall it had to have been her.
The Spritzee was caught off guard when she saw a Rapidash and human watching her and blushed. She was just practicing! There was nothing to see here at all, nothing at all. Michi laughed softly at the Spritzee's embarrassment and released her Hoppip, Aella. She liked to dance too so hopefully it wouldn't frighten the Spritzee more. Aella cooed happily and waved at the Spritzee who, instead of being happy that someone new was here got spooked and used another Moonblast. "Quick! Acrobatcis!" Michi called out frantically. Thankfully, Aella managed to dodge the attack just in time before using Seed Bomb on the Spritzee. If it was a battle the Spritzee wanted, she would be happy to oblige.
The Spritzee winced when the Seed Bomb hit her and used Sweet Scent, hoping that the next time she attacked would hit. "Try Sleep Powder!" That would help the Spritzee calm down if nothing else. Aella nodded and used the move, making the Spritzee drowsy as a result. No! She had to stay awake...she could-... zzzzzzz... After that, the Hoppip decided to try another Acrobatics while the Spritzee was still down. That Moonblast attack was powerful after all and she certainly didn't want to be hit by that.
Even if Michi knew this was how battles worked, she still didn't like seeing the sleeping Spritzee get hurt like that. Aella would use Seed Bomb one more time and looked like she was about to use another move when Michi had enough. "Stop it! That's enough, Aella... She's sleeping and hurt. I think she was just scared before..." Michi explained, going to the Spritzee that was just now beginning to stir, "Shhhh, you're alright, I'll take care of you now. You like to dance right? Well, so do I. Want to come with us? We could use such a pretty dancer like you~." The Spritzee blushed and seemed to hesitate a moment before nodding.
Smiling brightly at the Spritzee, Michi pressed a pokeball to the Pokemon and watched her disappear into the red sphere. This was great! They had a new friend now! "C'mon, let's keep going, there could be more treasure up ahead too!" Some more new friends would be cool too, especially if they were as cute as the Spritzee.

They didn't get very far before Aella started to glow, lighting up the tunnels as the Hoppip evolved. Michi giggled and hugged the new Skiploom close, "Good job, Aella! You did it!" she exclaimed excitedly while the Skiploom cooed. After they got further into the tunnel, Michi saw what looked like a dancer holding a gem in his hands like he had a priceless treasure. Huh, well maybe they could try talking to whoever the dancer was. Or at least that was the initial idea before Muffin decided to join the party and launched herself at the Mime Jr., opting to Play Rough.
The Mime Jr. cried out in alarm and dropped the gem he'd been holding before using Copycat. Yelping in alarm, Muffin jumped back and shook her head. Owowow, that had hurt. "Hang in there, umm, try Fire Fang!" Michi called out, trying to sound confident. She was getting the hang of this battling thing but well, it still made her uneasy that Muffin had suddenly come out of her pokeball like that. The Lillipup was just excited, she knew that but still, there had to be something she could do differently to keep that from happening.
Muffin barked in response and charged the Mime Jr. again with Fire Fang, clamping down on it. The Mime Jr. squeaked in pain and tried to get away but another Fire Fang caused him to faint. As soon as she was sure she won, Muffin retrieved the gem and ran over to Michi again, wagging her tail excitedly. "Good girl, you did a good job~,"Michi murmured, petting the Lillipup after she took the mysterious gem from her mouth. Well, at the very least they could make sure this Mime Jr. got help later... it looked like it was having fun with the gem too.
Tossing a pokeball at the fainted Mime Jr., Michi waited until the pokemon disappeared inside. "Alright, stay close you two. No running off, Muffin," Michi said, looking down at the eager Lillipup who barked in response. Well, more Pokemon out meant it would be safer, right. Right.

They didn't have far to go in the tunnels when they ran across a Togepi playing with what looked like a pile of rocks? Huh, that was interesting. Maybe they wanted to come with them? Or something? The Togepi did look pretty cute after all. Well, Yuan might get jealous on one hand but... on the other, maybe they would get along? It was worth a shot. Michi had been about to approach the Togepi but it seemed Muffin had already beaten her to it. The excitable Lillipup decided she wanted to Play Rough and knocked over the Togepi who started to cry.
Michi opened her mouth to say something again but again, Muffin decided to Play Rough as a way to try and make friends. Umm, no, no, sweet doggo, that wasn't how you made friends. As hard as Muffin was trying, Michi couldn't help but giggle a little. "Silly girl, you're just making it worse. Stop and be nice, the poor baby's just scared," Michi said softly, walking towards the tired and scared Togepi. It didn't look like the poor dear could fight much more either. "Shhh, it's alright little one. I've got you, you're safe now," she continued, humming softly as she rocked the Togepi. After a short time, the Togepi was sound asleep and Muffin had found some rocks to play with. Well, it looked like everyone was happy at the very least.
Pressing a ball to the sleeping Togepi, Michi watched as the baby disappeared into the ball. There, now they would be safe. It was easy to get lost in the tunnels and this way they could make sure the baby was always safe. It took a little longer to convince Muffin to stop playing with the rocks but eventually they started searching through the tunnels once again. There just had to be more to see! Muffin was certainly eager and ran ahead to see if there was more fancy rocks or gems. Treasure hunting certainly was a lot of fun! Who knew what other cool friends they would find together? "Muffin! Come on, wait up!" Would that Lillipup ever learn?

Laughing as Muffin ran ahead, Michi tried to keep up. It was getting darker in the tunnels now but at least there was a little bit of li-... huh? Was Muffin glowing? At least the light stopped and oh? Muffin got a lot bigger! A proud BORK could be heard as the now Herdier came racing back to Michi, nearly knocking her over in the process. Michi barely had enough time to hug the excited Herdier before Muffin decided to race off again. Well, it seemed some things never really changed.
Meanwhile it seemed the excited Herdier had disturbed a sleeping Fomantis that was none too pleased with being woken up. With Muffin still distracted scratching at something shiny they found in the dirt, Michi decided it was better to use someone else besides the distracted Herdier. Oh well, she still had Aira with her and the Fletchling would enjoy perhaps making a new friend or two... Maybe they could play a little, who knew? Pulling out the pokeball, Michi released the little Fletchling who flitted about happily until they were suddenly hit by a Razor Leaf. Owwww.... that had hurt.
With an angry cry, Aira used Flame Charge and aimed it at the Fomantis. How dare the Fomantis hurt her trainer too! That wasn't very nice at all! This seemed to scare of the Fomantis at least but then Aira was hit by another Razor Leaf from a Sunflora this time. Chirping angrily, the Aira used yet another Flame Charge and followed up with Acrobatics. The Sunflora went down thereafter while Michi tried to figure out where Muffin went. Well? She should at least try catching the flower... it had just been confused and worried about his friend after all.
Before Michi could have a chance to call out to Muffin, it seemed the Herdier came back with... was than an egg and a marble in its mouth? Silly puppy. Tossing an ultra ball at the Sunflora, Michi took the items from the Herdier and placed them in her pocket. She could find someone to explain what they were later after all.
