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!
