PostSubject: Roleplay Rules   Tue Aug 23, 2016 6:32 am

1. Avoid paradoxes. Try and establish a clear continuity to prevent confusion.

2. Don't jump into old topics. An RP topic is considered dead after about a month without a reply. Joining at that stage will likely just annoy the original posters who have moved on.

3. Don't retcon, metagame, powerplay, or godmod. Remember common roleplay courtesy and be mindful not to commit any of these cardinal sins.

4. Pokémon do not repeat their own names. For example, a Growlithe doesn't say "Growlithe." It barks, growls, or yaps. In the same vein, Pokémon can't be magically understood. Think of it like talking to your dog or cat. Pokémon are intelligent, but for all intents and purposes, are animals in terms of sapience and can't communicate the way humans do.

5. This roleplay is based in game canon. Not on the anime/show, and not on any of the manga, but specifically the universe portrayed in the main game series. That being said, PokéFlora is its own separate canon. Consider it an alternate universe from the games.

6. All characters must be original. No one's permitted to take characters from canon Pokémon or any other franchise. That means you can't bring Cynthia or Brock or John Cena to the Flora Islands.

7. Legendary and mythical Pokémon are just that. No one can be sure they exist outside of folklore. You won't see one in the wild, let alone own one. Legendary and mythical Pokémon are also one of a kind, which means there will never be more than one Articuno or Celebi.

8. You can have as many characters as you want. Any age, almost any background, they don't even have to own their own Pokémon. Newborns to old men, you name it, and you can have it. So long as they don't conflict with this roleplay's plot, universe, or rules, there isn't a problem.

9. Keep travel time in mind. The Flora Islands are closely clustered together, meaning you can hop from island to island easily, but you're not a teleporter (unless you're literally having your Pokémon teleport of course). Pokémon also don't need to know HMs to travel (e.g. your Lapras can carry you through the water even if it doesn't know Surf as an attack).

10. Please respect the lore. The story behind the Flora Islands is the fabric which holds this roleplay together, even if it's not immediately obvious. Do your best to stay consistent with the lore and history presented to you.
