All your base are belong to us

Did you check out that Rocket Admin post? If you didn't, you should since it's relevant to what's going on here! Plus, it's some insight into how the Rocket Admins make decisions in case you've ever wondered about that.

Anyway, since that's a little vague, here's what's going on! Those Aqua and Magma Grunts from Halloween had bases here, remember? And Team Rocket's finally tracked them down, and doesn't really approve of the idea of other teams setting up shop here, so they're going to send in some Grunts (which means you guys) to go clear them out. That's right! We're having a Rocket plot. A completely optional, opt-in Rocket plot! Because we figured you Rocket players might enjoy having an official chance to put in some work towards a future promotion! So without further delay because you guys probably want to get to the details already, here's the important stuff:

The Details:
-The Admins have discovered a Team Aqua and a Team Magma Base
-One in Cinnabar Island and one in the Whirl Islands
-Player Grunts are being called to bases to get orders, which basically go over this and explain that on February 1st, they'll be dispatched to clean out the bases simultaneously.

The Opposition:
-Each character will face one Grunt.
-Which team they're on depends on which base they're in (Magma are in Cinnabar and Aqua are in the Whirl Islands).
-They'll have standard Grunt teams. Expect Zubats.
-Once they lose, they'll just sit around and grumble.
-If they win their battle? They'll be using an Escape Rope to flee and warn their bosses, so they won't be sticking around for future battles.

How to Win:
-This one's pretty simple, you just need to beat six Grunts in each base.
-Your options are pretty open here. You can win via Pokemon battle, attacking them, some sort of convoluted trap, it's up to you within reason!
-And that's basically it!
-Seriously, you can go on to the next section.

What if That Doesn't Happen?:
-We, the mods, are pretty sure you guys can do this, but if you can't...
-First of all the Admins are going to be really disappointed in you guys. And nobody wants that.
-Oh and they'll probably make you guys spend a week redoing your Rocket training and cleaning up the bases you just raided.
-So don't fail!

Win or Lose:
-Some stuff's going to happen, regardless of the outcome!
-Team Aqua and Magma will abandon these bases.
-Team Rocket will establish outposts in the old bases for all sorts of things! Keep an eye out for an updated location page in [community profile] rocket_hq in the relatively near future for more info!

So with all that out of the way, here's what we need from you! Just fill out the form by 11:59 PM EST on January 30th!

After you've done that, please go check out our Plotting Post in [community profile] rocket_hq if you're interested in plotting out teamups or anything like that with your fellow Rocket players!

Also, if you guys have any questions feel free to ask them here!

I've got a quick question for you guys. How many Grunts can one player take out? I have four Rockets so I figured this might be a good thing to ask!

Character Name: Mitsuzane Kureshima
Team Preference: Aqua
Pokemon Team: Absol (57), Unfezant (55), Pachirisu (51), Drapion (49), Kadabra (43), Vulpix (38)
Enemy Lineup: I'd like to know beforehand, please!
Random or Equal Levels: Relatively equal levels would be good.
Win or Lose: I'd like him to win, but a narrow victory is okay if that works better!

Character Name: Snake
Team Preference: Magma (not a strong preference)
Pokemon Team: Seviper(52), Seviper (50), Ekans (41), Onix (40), Dragonair (36), Servine (25)
Enemy Lineup:Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Random
Win or Lose: Win. How else will he make it look like he just accidentally sabotaged Cobra's little plot? Besides, he has no issue wiping the floor of another team like Team Rocket.

nostabbing: (HANG ⚡ art from a new perspective)

[personal profile] nostabbing 2015-01-30 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Parker
Team Preference: I believe Aqua, but either way I'd like to have her kept with Eliot ([personal profile] hitsitoff), whichever base she gets sent to!
Pokemon Team: Mightyena, Ninetales, Purrloin, Pikachu, Breloom, Aerodactyl (all level 95).
Enemy Lineup: I'm fine with a surprise!
Random or Equal Levels: Randomized is fine; Parker probably won't be outright battling them anyway.
Win or Lose: I am actually fine with either; her strategy going in here is more in line with trying to jump and disarm (or dis-Pokemon, I guess) the other Grunts as opposed to actually battling them, so if they manage to get away before she can do that, it's fine! I have a slight preference toward winning so as not to screw over the rest of the participants, though. :|a

Pokemon Team: Alakazam (level 100), Hypno (level 100), Remoraid (level 95), Haunter (level 95), Misdreavus (level 95), Zoroark (level 95).
Enemy Lineup: I'm fine with a surprise!
Random or Equal Levels: Randomized is fine; he'll be fighting dirty, so there's...that.
Win or Lose: Schuldig's pretty career-oriented, so I'd like to have him win if possible, but I can definitely work with either!

Character Name: Frank Archer

Character Name: Naki
Team Preference: Either!
Pokemon Team: Marowak (100), Gyarados (100), Malamar #1 (70), Malamar #2 (70), Doublade (55), Murkrow (55)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Random
Win or Lose: I'm perfectly fine with either! Let's face it, if anyone can manage to completely screw themselves over in battle, it's Naki. Also who brings to Malamars to a fight, that's just asking for trouble.
dressofheaven: (Not planning anything)

[personal profile] dressofheaven 2015-01-30 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Ilyasviel von Einzbern
Team Preference: Aqua
Pokemon Team: Rhyperior, Dusknoir, Garchomp, Aggron, Metagross, and Houndoom (All level 100)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Randomized (grunts with 100s are probably pretty rare anyway if they even exist)
Win or Lose: It's not so much that I mind her losing, but she's got a very powerful maxed level team and she won't be pulling her punches. I kind of doubt the grunts are gonna bring her down.
fauxtographs: or myself! (Default)

[personal profile] fauxtographs 2015-01-30 05:11 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Emmy Altava
Team Preference: Either, preferably with Archer ([personal profile] sadisticwarfare)
Pokemon Team: Stoutland, Scrafty, Lucario, Metagross (all 100) and Heliolisk, Greninja (both 90)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Random sounds fun!
Win or Lose: Winning would be preferable!
divinitea: (SIDE-EYE ♦ those shoes with that dress..)

Character Name: Celestia Ludenberg
Team Preference: Opposite to Emmy ([personal profile] fauxtographs), if possible!
Pokemon Team: Gothitelle, Ninetales, Lopunny, Milotic, Chandelure, Honchkrow (all 100)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Random please!

Character Name: Dr Kato
Team Preference: Wherever Dist ([personal profile] ortion) is going, preferably, and opposite to where Nagi ([personal profile] unkinder) is going!
Pokemon Team: Hydreigon, Lunatone, Gengar, Camerupt, Gigalith, Cryogonal (all 100)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Random please!
Win or Lose: He's looking to impress, so winning would be great!

EDIT: Just swapped Kato's Drifblim for his Metal Coat!Cryogonal, since Dist's plot ideas got approved!
Edited 2015-01-31 03:24 (UTC)
unkinder: (☆ but I've seen despair here)

[personal profile] unkinder 2015-01-30 05:54 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Nagi Naoe
Team Preference: Preferably opposite to where Dist ([personal profile] ortion) and Kato ([personal profile] katostrophic) are going!
Pokemon Team: Raichu (lv 100), Ninetails (lv 100), Gardevoir (lv 100), Abra (lv 100), Xatu (lv 80), Noctowl (lv 60)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Random!
Win or Lose: I'm fine with either! Nagi's going to go hard, but he's also had something of A Month so he could very easily falter and screw himself over as well if he isn't careful.
ortion: (Default)

[personal profile] ortion 2015-01-30 06:18 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Dist the Rose
Team Preference: Either, would like to be placed with Kato ([personal profile] katostrophic) and opposite of Nagi ([personal profile] unkinder) if possible!
Pokemon Team: Roserade (100), Metagross (100), Scizor (100), Golurk (100), Jellicent (100), Floette (70)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me c:
Random or Equal Levels: Random
Win or Lose: I'm open to either option- he's going to be trying to test out some (hopefully successful) experiments as well so he might be able to take a loss.
evilfrenzy: (♟ suck it julius)

[personal profile] evilfrenzy 2015-01-30 06:25 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Rideaux
Team Preference: Either works!
Pokemon Team: Zangoose (100), Houndoom (90), Doublade (90), Klefki (80), Talonflame (80), Sneasel (50)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: A similar spread to his current team's levels would be cool!
Win or Lose: Win, he's really looking to do well here.

Character Name: Valmont
Team Preference: No preference!
Pokemon Team: Servine (23), Stunky (8), Gothorita (38), Deino (5)
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Random!
Win or Lose: Lose. His Pokémon suck. Please hand his butt to him.

[personal profile] hitsitoff 2015-01-30 08:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Eliot Spencer
Team Preference: Aqua, though wherever he goes I would prefer it to be with Parker ([personal profile] nostabbing)
Pokemon Team: Mankey (19), Houndour (10)
Enemy Lineup: Sure, surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Randomized is fine, since Eliot's going to try to avoid battling anyone in the usual way anyway.
Win or Lose: Winning would be preferred, but either is fine. Like Parker, Eliot is going to attempt to get through without battling if he can. He'll be taking a more... direct approach. That is to say, his strategy will be getting the jump on the Grunts and knocking them out physically, as opposed to battling them traditionally.
ardent: (And turning all against one)

[personal profile] ardent 2015-01-31 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Kiyotaka Ishimaru
Team Preference: Either, though I'd prefer he be sent wherever Nagi ([personal profile] unkinder) ends up!
Pokemon Team: Gyarados, Misdreavus, Espeon, Gallade, Bronzong and Girafarig, all level 100 ...HOW DID I SCREW THIS UP
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Randomized is fine, because he's going to be fighting surprisingly dirty this time around.
Win or Lose: I would prefer a win, if you don't mind!

explosivecombat: (And what have we here?)

[personal profile] explosivecombat 2015-01-31 01:59 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Solf J Kimblee
Team Preference: No preference, and there's no one he's specifically avoiding or clinging to, so literally wherever is fine!
Pokemon Team: Mamoswine, Ninetales, Electrode, Weavile, Steelix, Roserade, all level 100
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Equal levels are fine!
Win or Lose: Winning would be preferable!

[personal profile] twinsanity 2015-01-31 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
Character Name: Alfred Ashford
Team Preference: No preference, though preferably with Schuldig ([profile] aufassig) if possible
Pokemon Team: Remoraid, Durant, Houndoom, Gastrodon, Garbodor, Yanmega, all level 100
Enemy Lineup: Surprise me!
Random or Equal Levels: Either way, I'm good
Win or Lose: ...okay his pokémon are high-leveled but his battling skills are subpar, so if he ends up getting equalized levels he's going to get his ass handed to him; if he's overleveled he'll be fine. So basically I will leave it to your discretion, though if for whatever godforsaken reason Alfred is the tiebreaker for win/lose anywhere then I will have a slight preference toward winning such as to avoid screwing people over, for what it's worth.
