Welcome to the world of pokemon! You're a pre-teen/teen who lives in kanto, about to start his journey, travelling throughout the cities, gyms, and regions, hoping to become the best.
Stuff you need to know/rules
In battles with other characters, if your pokemon is at a type disadvantage, you must have a counter, like if an electric type is attacking a flying type and you saying you switch to a ground type is NOT gonna fly.
This is played like the anime/manga. Meaning you aren't limited to four moves, but rather 7. Improvising attacks can work, such as dodging.
You may start with any pokemon, it is at it's first stage. I will alert you when any pokemon needs to evolve.
Some pokemon are not binded to their region. Some kanto and hoenn pokemon are in johto, some johto pokemon are in kanto, some sinnoh in hoenn, some hoenn in sinnoh, so on.
The criminal organizations are still around, you may join them, but you can indeed get arrested if you lose a fight to an officer.
