New to the site and feeling a little overwhelmed? We know there is a lot to take in, so we've composed a basic guide of things to read, and things to do to get you involved as quickly as you can in the site!▸ First thing's first, you need to read to the rules. Once you've got a feel for how our site operates, feel free to take a read of our plot. If anything major happens, there will be an announcement so don't worry about missing anything major. Before you decide anything, you might want to check out our system thread. It explains how pokemon capturing & raising work here.
▸ Now that you've decided to join, you have to decide what kind of character you're going to make. By checking our canon list and ban list, you will know which canon characters are available. We also have the option to create original characters, so please check the ban list to make sure you know if the pokemon you want are available for your character to have.
▸ Okay, things are getting real now. You've started to make up your character, or pick your character from the canon list, so now you can look at the trainer classes and decide what they might be in terms of a career. They can be trainers or breeders, have a look at this list to decide. If you're still stuck for ideas, you can always check the wanted list for ideas.
▸ You've got your character's basics in your head, so now go check the faceclaim list so that you can pick a basic appearance for your character. After doing this, you can follow through to the application rules where you will have to check a few basics before you copy the application template.
▸ To fill out the application template, you merely need to hit "quote" in the top right hand corner of the post and copy everything between the quote tags. Then you must fill out the application to the best of your abilities.
▸ When you have finished your application, please post in the notification thread to let the staff know that your app is complete. This way we don't have to guess if you are still adding pieces or changing things about your application. If we write pending on your application, don't be offended! There's just a thing or two that needs to be changed, and we'll definitely let you know what those might be.
▸ Congratulations, you've been accepted to our site! Now we have a few options for you. You can get straight into roleplaying, or you can head over to the plot pages and try to organise some plots for your characters. Whatever you decide, please have lots of fun with us!
