Where did you hear about us: I think I googled something like Pokemon RP server
Tell us a little about yourself: I’m a recent highschool graduate (yas) and I’m heading to Uni next year to study Animation full-time. Personality-wise I’m a real softie, I love stuff like peace n love and sappy stuff like that, eheheh.
What is roleplaying?: It’s like acting but through writing! You take on a character and write for them, very similar to in theatre.
What is meta-gaming?: It’s when your character gains knowledge magically because you, yourself know something that your character shouldn’t otherwise. For example, if they were trying to solve a mystery and you were told who the murderer was, and your character suddenly blurted “IT WAS THEM!”, that would be classic metagaming.
What is power-gaming?: It’s similar to Godmodding, your character can just do whatever they want without consent of another RPer. No dice rolls, nothing. It’s kinda disrespectful.
What is retroactive continuity?: It’s basically when a writer decides to change continuity of a storyline in favour of a new plot or idea, it happens a lot in comics and TV shows. For example, in Boy Meets World it’s mentioned once that the character Topanga had a sister, but she’s never mentioned again in favour of Topanga’s parents divorcing being more tragic because she’s an only child.
What is a Mary Sue?: It’s a character who’s written poorly, by that I mean they have no flaws, or any flaws they do have are cutesy or easily-accepted. (Mary Sue Litmus Test on Springhole.com is ace for this)
What is the difference between in-character (IC) and out-of-character (OOC)?: IC is ‘in character’, aka anything you say from this point on isn’t coming from your mouth, it’s your character’s. OOC is the opposite, you’re out of character.
Do you have previous experience playing on a RP server? (This won’t affect your acceptance): I’ve been RPing for… too long. I started out on Stardoll of all places doing forum RPs with some other girls (star wars rps, good times). Since then I’ve been all over the place, did RPs in Twitter and MC, basically I know my way around RP pretty well.

General Character Questions
Full name: Tansy Plaksett
Appearance: Tansy’s small and somewhat awkward in stature, she hasn’t quite grown into herself yet. She has short, curly blonde hair, and freckles dot her cheeks. Her defining feature is definitely her gapped teeth that seem nearly too big for her mouth. She always seems to be standing uncomfortably, like she has somewhere else to be or something else to be doing. She’s seldom seen without a smile.
Personality: She’s a huge optimist, nearly to a degree of annoyance. She believes in peace and love and thinks anyone who disagrees is wrong. She loves her friends more than she loves herself, including Pixelmon. If something bothers her she won’t come right out and say it, rather she turns to passive-aggression or ceases talking about it altogether. She’s very empathetic and feels things very deeply.
Biography: Tansy was born and raised in Cherrygrove City in the Johto Region, born to two caring and slightly overprotective parents, causing a stir for adventure within her. She would constantly hang around (harass) her neighbour and unrequited best friend forever Alburt, or Albie to her – a friend like him deserved the best nickname. Upon receiving her first Pixelmon she set out on her own stereotypical Pixelmon Journey, along with making sure to follow Alburt to be his travelling buddy, even if he voiced disagreement on the matter. As he chose to leave for Toro after wishing to escape the small-town life of Cherrygrove, she decided to go with him. After all, it would be silly to let her childhood friend leave by himself without taking her with him.
Flaws: She’s not the brightest, often rushing into situations without thinking and thus launching herself (or whoever’s with her) into dangerous situations. She’s also quite stuck in her ways, she’s got a very black and white view of the world. She’s clingy, very dependant, she’d rather die than be out alone. She’s very sensitive.
Ambitions: World peace— well, maybe smaller, more achievable goals would suit her better for now. She’s open-minded when it comes to goals on her journey, as there’s so much to do. First and foremost she wishes to win badges and ribbons, she loves competing more than competition itself. She also wishes to catch Pixelmon of course, but not ‘em all, just ones she deems cute or cool enough to join her team. Number one on her list is a Sylveon, then maybe a few more Eeveelutions along the way.
Starter Pixelmon: Chikorita
Open Response Questions
You find yourself standing in a bustling town. Suddenly, a small girl runs up to you, her eyes seeming to glisten with fresh tears as her bottom lip quivers. “Please!” She cries out to you, “You must help me! My poor Meowth is stuck in a tree!” She points to a nearby tree as more tears spill out of her eyes and down her cheeks. How does your character respond?
“OH!” she hollers, hands lifting to cup her cheeks in horror. “Oh, geez, okay, uh-“ she fumbles along the row of Pixelballs that hung at her hip. “Waitwaitwait, I got this!” She pauses suddenly, a hand hovering over one as she seemed deep in a very serious thought. Finally, she marches over to the tree herself, hikes up her sleeves and wraps her arms around the tree and begins to shimmy up the tree – at least, she was trying to. Unfortunately, the trunk is thick, and her arms are not. Yet shimmy she does, and when she’s a whole two inches from the ground she turns her head to face the small girl. “I think we should call somebody.”
You are walking along the road when your eyes lock onto a trainer’s in the distance. At that moment, you both freeze in place. You see a glimmer in the trainer’s eyes as he reaches for his Pixelball. “Go, Rattata! Show this chump what we’ve been training for!” the trainer shouts as he swiftly releases his chosen partner in the vacant space that separates the two of you. How does your character respond?
“Ch-chump?!” she sputters, she’s taken aback as her brows furrow at the sudden, unwarranted rudeness of this trainer. Of course, it would be silly to turn down such a challenge now, after they’d locked eyes and everything. Tansy takes a moment to straighten her skirt before striking a quick battle pose – who wouldn’t pose right before battle? – and throws her own Pixelball. “Chikorita, it’s our time to shine!” her nasally voice rings out. “Let’s show this.. ah, this butt-head what we can do!”
