ACTIVITY CHECK


This Activity Check encompasses activity made during the month of January. Posts and threads started between January 1 through February 8th may be used as long as they were not used for last month's activity. (Note: because last month's AC was a check-in AC, this rule stands as follows: qualifying posts and threads for AC must have been started between January 1, 2016 and February 8, 2016 to be eligible.)


• Each proof linked must be at least ten (10) comments long (meaning 5 from you and 5 from another, or with threadjacking, etc.).

Full requirements should make at minimum thirty (30) comments overall, or at least 15 from your character.
Half requirements should make at minimum twelve (12) comments overall, at least 6 from your character.


• Proofs must be completed with three different characters. If Character A submits threads with Characters B, C, and D, this is a valid form of AC. If Character A submits two threads with Character B and one thread with Character D, this is NOT a valid form of AC.

• Players in control of multiple characters are discouraged from making AC by threading several of their characters off of the same opposing character. The maximum number of threads a player may submit for AC with the same character (spread across different characters of their own) is two.

• Action tagging count as threads. Conversations in voicemails/inboxes also count as threads as long as they are started during that month of AC.

• Multiple-comment icon spams count as just one comment.

• Half requirements are for those who were on hiatus for up to half of the month and returned more than one week before the Activity Check.

• Posts and threads made during the week of the Activity Check can be used for that month's activity check!

• Those who returned within a week of the activity check are exempt from the month's check. Those who are also currently on hiatus are exempt.

Full Requirements are one post and two threads, or three threads, or two posts, one thread, or three posts.
Half Requirements are one post, and one thread of any length, or two threads, one of 10 comments and one of any length.

Characters who joined during the second app round of the month only need one post of any length or one thread of any length to verify that they have introduced.


The activity check ends on February 8th, 11:59 pm EST. Anyone who does not check in will be removed from the game on February 9th.

Good evening, Routers! We're coming to you with a bittersweet announcement tonight — one of our wonderful Tech Moderators, Lucy, has decided to step down from the team and the game. After more than two years on the team, she'll be very missed, so we wanted to take a moment and recognize all the hard work that she put into helping to keep the game running! We'll be updating the lists shortly to reflect this moderator change-up.

For the time being, we will not be opening moderator applications. In the event that this decision changes in the future, we will of course make an announcement to the game at large, and open applications through the same format we have used in the past. However, for the moment we will simply be reducing the team by one member and carrying forward with four moderators from here.

Thank you again to Lucy for all her contributions toward making Route a wonderful place!

Your Modteam,
Sunny, Alex, Dal, and Steve

ACTIVITY CHECK-IN


Happy 2016, everyone!

This Activity Check encompasses activity made during the month of December and goes a little differently this month. All you need to do is check in, no proofs required for this month!! This month does not count towards removing prior strikes, but checking in will not count against you. You may still do full activity activity to remove a strike if you wish, otherwise they will roll into the January check.

• Those who are also currently on hiatus are exempt, as normal.
• However, we request that those who returned within a week of the activity check check in.

The activity check-in ends on January 8th, 11:59 pm EST. Anyone who does not check in will be removed from the game on January 9th.

It's been a little quiet lately, but on Christmas Day everyone will find a gift basket near them, containing various treats for both Trainers and Pokemon alike! And since you guys have been good this year in stopping the fused Pokemon, everyone's basket will also include a reusable TM of the player's choice too!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, ROUTE!

4th WALL WEEKEND!
GOBBLE GOBBLE EDITION!


The event will take place from Friday, November 27 through Sunday, November 29!


That's right, Routers, it's that time of the year again! The fourth wall is about to come tumbling down — and as some of you may have guessed, this time it's coming courtesy of your very own Legendary, who's been suffering some growing pains lately as it settles into its new, post-Mewssingno form. As a result, the fabric of space-time is bending a little bit, and you know what that means...

As is usual for our semi-annual 4th Wall events, following the cue from a mod post, there will be a loud crack and a flash of white light in our regions of Johto and Kanto. When your characters blink a few times, the scene before their eyes will return to normal... however... there will be a lot more people, or beings, in the cities, or along the routes, or even just trolling about on the PokéConnect.

Paths will be absurdly easy to travel, or, if you want, uncommonly difficult. It can take as long or as little as you want it to in order to go from city to city, and you can check out whatever building you want. Hell, if your character is accidentally caught in the glitch, they may wake up in an unfamiliar place!

BIRTH ISLAND
DAY 31/10. 5:30 .


The existence dubbed "Mewssingno" is left...confused.

For as long as it can remember, it has been confused. Of course, its memory is not so very long; it first remembers just a smattering of hours ago, when there were lights and mechanical sounds and these things, the humans, watching.

Yes. The humans.

Confusing. Why are they here? Their memories are long. Their names are strange. They carry with them awareness of other places, well beyond the reach of the boundaries of this universe. Yet here they are, and they fight. They adapt. They embrace while refusing to be assimilated. They consider the word "home", and conjure up images of things beyond the reach of this world.

They're very strange, the humans. Some don't even apply that term to themselves, deep in their subconscious mind.

Confusing.

What are they, the fusion of glitch and potential wonders with growing uncertainty. Some have battled; some have not. They form bonds. They cooperate. They share little in history yet share much of themselves in compensation. These humans...

They are enigmas.

They are not like the wish-granter, who appears with the friendliness of an old acquaintance, though they have never crossed paths before. In some fashion, Jirachi is half its creator, responsible for the thing that brought it into being. The humans are the other, having supplied the will to make its existence a reality.

The power of a Legendary Pokemon. The design of the humans. The potential of the ancestor of all Pokemon.

What am I? the glitching existence asks, horned head tipping sideways to regard Jirachi as it floats nearby, freed at last after its long confinement.

What is your wish? Jirachi answers, its wish tags wafting slightly as it spreads its arms wide in offer.

That...is a very good question. Wishes are precious things, after all. And it is living proof of how a hasty wish might go awry, or be used to ill ends when placed in the wrong hands.

I wish...

~


As abruptly as they were brought to Birth Island, the residents of Johto/Kanto are returned to the place they were standing before they left. Their Pokemon are with them, their reserves of Fusion Balls still at the ready, and in many cases, their bodies still fused with whatever Pokemon they were unlucky enough to be attacked by earlier in the month.

It's as though the battle never happened at all, except that everyone remembers being there — and there are a few things that are a little different.

One is that the damage to Celadon City is still intact, tangible proof that something escaped through there on its way to parts unknown.

Another is that somewhere on their person, every player character resident of Johto/Kanto will find a hard copy picture of the person they think about most — whether it be the person they hold in highest regard, their sworn nemesis, or simply someone they've been longing to see.

And the last, and perhaps most curious, is that a new entry has been added to everyone's Pokedex — or a partial one, at least. There is no name, no description, and no details, but it's definitely an entry, and definitely a type combination: FIRE/DARK.




INFOPOST: SO HERE'S WHAT JUST HAPPENED...

Read on for some very cool information about the outcome of this plot! )


Thank you again for another excellent October plot, Routers! Happy Halloween, and we hope you've had as much fun with the Freaky Fusions as we have!

CELADON CITY
DAY 29/10. 13:00.


While the current epidemic of freaky fusions certainly wasn't part of the plan, even that could be written off as an unfortunate mishap in the long run. After all, the way the admins see it, who's going to remember or even care about things like Mr. Sir or Magmormuk after today?

“Readings are normal, should we proceed?”

The Rocket scientist looks up from the terminal for approval from the admins, and gets a nod in return. Someone should say something, but all four are at a loss for words at the moment. After all, what does someone say at the creation of not just a new Pokemon, but a new Legendary Pokemon? One with the legendary power of Mew and the untapped potential of the Fusion Orb?

“Moving the orb into position and...the orb is placed. We should be seeing the results any sec-”

A flash of light emerges from the test chamber, momentarily stunning everyone. And when it fades, Arianna's the first one to notice the problem.

“Where did it go?”




CELADON CITY
DAY 29/10. 13:01 .


The Celadon Condominiums are usually one of the quietest places in town. Not much going on there besides that game development studio that never seems to actually release any games. Or there wasn't anything going on until today, when a roar can be heard through the entire city, as something new warps into the building, knocking a giant Mewssingno shaped hole in the side of it. And before anyone can react, it roars again and seemingly glitches out of the now ruined building.

But it's not long before it reappears inside the city's Game Corner, destroying several of the slot machines and causing a swarm of what could be classified as Electrogarbopedes into the building before winking out of existence again. Once again the city begins to be full of panic, screaming, and mayhem. And like before, this chaos doesn't remain confined to Celadon as glitches and amalgamated abominations begin to spread throughout the land.




BIRTH ISLAND
DAY 29/10. 13:30 .


Once again, the mysterious new creature appears seemingly out of thin air. This time on a secluded island on the rarely visited Sevii Archipelago. But it won't be alone for long. The island is quickly filled by all sorts of creative combinations of Pokemon. Everything from Cryodrillzors to Magidoofpods. And as the glitches continue to spread throughout the regions, it expects trainers to appear to challenge its newly formed creations...

CELADON CITY
DAY 18/10. 6:35.



"It's all hooked up! What a success, let's get this show on the road!"

As the red button is pressed and the admins wait with bated breath, the machine whirs and begins to hum to life, lights flashing and noises sounding as electricity pours through the wires and begins powering its functions. Nearby, a handpicked group of favored Grunts stand watching through wide eyes as well, eager to witness whether their leaders' promise of a new age of never-before-seen Pokemon will in fact become a reality right here, right now.

The device engages; needles begin to steadily creep toward the right edge of their dials, and LED panels flicker in indication as information begins to stream across computer monitors.

At 6:39 AM on October 18th, the first Fusion — a Mr. Sir — appears on the testing room floor. That bubblegum-dapper gentlémon is the first, but it's certainly not the last.

"All right, grunts, that's the last of them for today. Get down to the test room floor and start rounding them up."

"Yes, sir!"

Correct in form as always, the Grunts salute and begin making their way down to the testing room floor, and there are handshakes all around in the control room. For the moment.

It's when the admins begin to wonder what's taking their Grunts so long, and switch on the intercom to the testing room floor to investigate, that the reason for that delay abruptly comes to light — and in the form of panic, shouting, and mayhem.



As of this post, the Fusions have begun to swarm and can now be found making their way across the countryside! Which means...


The Freaky Fusions Plot begins now!
