General Rules

Be respectful to every member.
    We all know the rule "Treat others as you would like to be treated. Well please follow that. Don't disrespect anyone, don't pick fights, and don't be mean. If someone is rude to you, don't fight back, get the attention of a staff member and we will deal with it properly. Despite the hatred everyone has of cyber bullying, a lot of people seem to do it anyway. They say things like "You suck" or "Go die" and don't think that those things have consequences, but they do. Over 20% of people admit to experiencing cyber bullying in their lifetimes. Over 50% have experienced it within the past year. And over 12% of those people have considered suicide and 10% of them have done it. Don't be the cause of a death. Think before you say something, because there is such a thing as a backspace button.
      If anyone is caught breaking this rule...
      1 time, they will be seriously warned and possibly banned from the chat box depending on the severity of the situation.
      2 times, said person will be banned from the chat box for a week.
      3 times, that person will be banned from the site for two weeks.
      4 times, the rule breaker will be permanently banned and deleted from the site.

Keep everything at a PG level
    There's no need for Sally and Billy to get it on on a roleplay site. Most of our members are under the age of 18, many younger than 15. So please, keep everything appropriate. If you wish to have a roleplay that exceeds these levels, please keep it in PM. Some topics start out with the intentions of "one thing leading to another". If you hope that's where your topic will go, don't even bother creating it. Start out in PM so none of us have to read your inappropriate posts.
      If anyone is caught breaking this rule...
      1 time, they will be warned and the topic will be deleted and all posts removed from their post count.
      2 times, they will be banned from the site for a week.
      3 times, they will be permanently banned from the site and all posts by them will be deleted.

Do not swear
    The PG level applies to language too. No swear words will be allowed in roleplay and only the words "Hell" and "Damn" are allowed in the chat box. Again, we have children on this site. Don't break their innocence...they get enough of that at school.
      If anyone is caught breaking this rule...
      1 time, they will be warned and the post will be removed.
      2 times, they will be banned from the chat box for two days.
      3 times, they will be banned from the site for three days
      4 times, they will be banned from the site for a week.
      5 times, they will be permanently banned from the site and all posts deleted.

Do not spam the site.
    Don't double post, post one word, or simply post something not needed to simply gain more posts. I understand you want to reach our levels quickly, but don't be annoying. No one likes a troll.
      If anyone is caught breaking this rule...
      A punishment will be given as seen fit by the severity of the situation.

Do not plagiarize someone else's work.
    Do not base your character off of someone else's character. Don't take names, appearances, or personalities from someone else's character. That is their creation and it should be treated as such. You are all creative enough to come up with your own ideas for characters, so don't take someone else's. Remember, not only is plagiarizing annoying, it's also illegal and considered stealing in the eyes of the law.
      If anyone is caught breaking this rule...
      1 time, they will be warned and asked to revise the creation.
      2 times, they will be banned from the site for a day.
      3 times, they will be banned from the site for a week.
      4 times, they will be permanently banned from the site.

Do not create multiple accounts to increase your character number
    Administrators (Pokemon Masters) and Mods (Elite Four) have the ability to see things called IP addresses. IP addresses trace where your account was made to a specific computer serial number. Each person has their own unique IP address. If you share an IP address with another member, then an investigation as to the ownership of the account will be put under way and, if found to be a double account, one account, the one of your choice, will be banned and all posts deleted.


Rules of the Roleplay

A minimum of six sentences per post is required in roleplay
    Don't post one line roleplay posts, don't post three sentences or four. At least six sentences is required per roleplay post. Staff members go through each topic and count sentence numbers. It's part of our jobs. If we notice a pattern of small posts, we will ask you to add more.

You are allowed to have four characters
    Now this may not seem like a lot of characters, but considering the amount of effort we expect you to put into each character, it's much more than you think.

Do not control someone else's character unless given permission
    You are not the one that decides if an attack hits your other character's Pokemon. You are not the one to decide if you really did pick that person up by the waist or if you attempted to but they squeezed our of your grip. You set the scene in each post, and the other person responds. If you are caught controlling someone else's character, a form of punishment will be inflicted depending on the severity and the frequency of the occurrence(s)

Do not roleplay before your character is accepted.
    Each character is read through and approved by a mod or admin. If you post before a character has been given its seal of approval, the post will be deleted and you will be asked to wait until your character is accepted. If you've been waiting for a few days for acceptance, please PM a mod or admin with a link to your character topic and politely request that your character be examined.
            We as the staff reserve the right to change, modify, remove, or add rules, punishments, or consequences at any time and for any allotted amount of time if we see fit. By joining this site, you have agreed to abide by these rules and not try to weasel your way around them.
