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~

It had been a little while since Emi had been to the Berry Grove, but when she stepped foot inside it, she felt just as enchanted as she had been the first time around.
It was a gorgeous place, overflowing with greenery in every direction, berries growing everywhere just waiting to be plucked... and all this took place inside a greenhouse on top of a train, of all places! If not for the occasional rumble of the train and shudder of the ground beneath her feet, Emi could have just as easily imagined herself being outside, in the middle of a dense forest.
There were plenty of berries to go around, so Emi was sure that the handful she would pick out on this trip would make little difference in the greater scheme of things, but she still felt a little bad about taking the berries from their natural (or somewhat natural, anyway) environment... but if it were really a problem, they wouldn't have been allowed in in the first place, right? She wouldn't take too many, though, just to be on the safe side.

Looks like you found 4 berries! A Red Berry! A common berry used to make various PokeBlocks. A Red Berry! A common berry used to make various PokeBlocks. A Blue Berry! A common berry used to make various PokeBlocks. A Red Berry! A common berry used to make various PokeBlocks.

A sudden shower of berries rained down upon Emi, with several berries falling into her bag in the process. Emi's first thought was that there must have been a strong gust of wind, though she didn't feel it--but then she remembered that she was inside, in a greenhouse, where such gusts of wind were highly unlikely to occur.
Then she saw her Kirlia, Eclipse, vigorously shaking a berry tree.
Emi couldn't help but giggle as she saw her Kirlia clutch the tree with both hands and shake it as hard as she could. Emi wasn't sure what exactly Eclipse was aiming for, whether the berry shower had been intended or just a happy accident, but it brought a smile to her face all the same.

Eclipse shook the tree again, and another shower of berries fell. While Emi had to admit that this was an easy way to get a few berries in her bag (and a handful had indeed lodged inside it this time as well), she wasn't sure that it was really a good idea overall.
The Kirlia stepped back from the tree and looked at Emi with an expression that was somewhere in between nervous and guilty. "Kir?"
Emi considered her words carefully before responding. "Just be careful when you do that, alright? We're guests here, and we don't want to risk hurting one of the trees, do we? Besides, there might be other Pokemon in the tree that would rather it be... not shaken. And now there are leaves and berries everywhere." It was true--the floor of the Berry Grove, at least in the section near Emi and surrounding the shaken tree, was covered in a coating of berries and leaves, many of the berries squished and the leaves torn.
"You're not in trouble, though, Eclipse. I know you didn't mean anything by it. Now c'mon, let's see how many of these berries we can pick up!"
Eclipse's expression brightened up with those last few words, bringing a smile to the Pokemon's face. "Kir-kir!"
As Emi bent down to pick up a berry, she got the feeling that she was being watched.
At first, she couldn't place the source of the feeling... but then she turned around to find her Gastly Sprite staring at her, holding two berries carefully within her mouth.
"Are those for me?" Emi asked.
Sprite nodded energetically before spitting out the berries in Emi's general direction. "Gaaast!"
Emi bent down and picked up the berries her Gastly had dropped, smiling as she did so. "Thank you so much!"
After putting the berries in her bag, Emi reached out to pet her Gastly, but hesitated, unsure how to do so. Would Sprite appreciate being petted in her solid middle, or would that be rude, to reach through her gaseous exterior? Was-
Sprite, for her part, settled the question by zooming towards Emi's extended hand until it was positioned exactly where the Gastly desired.
Emi giggled a little as she petted her Gastly. There were enough berries around that the Gastly's retrieval wasn't really necessary, but still, the thought was much appreciated.
Emi looked around for more berries to grab, but before she could spy any, she saw Sprite zoom up to the top of one tree and pick out two pink berries. Before she knew it, the Gastly had come back down with the two berries in her mouth, then spit them out next to Emi's feet, much as she had done before.
As Emi picked up the berries, she noticed that they were slightly slimy... but that didn't matter much, really. They were still worth gathering, would still serve their purpose in the end.
This time, Emi was a bit less hesitant in giving Sprite pets in return, after having been basically shown how to do it before. Sprite smiled up at her, and Emi smiled right back.
"Thanks for the berries, Sprite! I think we'll head back in a minute, if that's okay with everyone?"
Emi's various Pokemon let out cries of assent as she turned towards the entrance to the Berry Grove, Sprite still floating happily by her side.
