Information Collective

As the game progresses, information about the world that the RP takes place in will be slowly uncovered and disseminated to the characters. In the interest of keeping everyone up to date, this post can be used as an informal collection of knowledge. The mods will generally not be updating this section unless there are vital pieces of information we feel the players (and the characters) should know that are being misinterpreted or otherwise not correctly represented.

We will create a general scaffold to use at the start of the game, but players are encouraged to make their own top level threads on anything they think is worth noting. The information collected here is OoC knowledge, but would be known in the context of the game with a minimal amount of poking around and questioning. If there is a piece of information that is known to a certain group of characters that is worth noting OoC, but would not be openly shared with the other characters, please mark [Private] in the header of your response.

General Info

[personal profile] whateveryoueatliveitspart 2014-03-04 09:40 pm (UTC)(link)
"We are Team Evolution.

We represent a group of people with a common purpose - to restore humanity to the peaks it once ascended and to raise up all Pokémon alongside us. We call ourselves Team Evolution for the only path forward for both human and Pokémon is to evolve."

Team Evolution has several bases[Ref] far to the north of Union, the nearest of which is several weeks' travel away,[Ref] and currently has several hundred members, who are divided into multiple divisions, each of which has their own responsibilities.[Ref] They recruit from anyone who shares their common ideals.[Ref] The group has existed for a minimum of 40 years, though in the past they lacked the numbers and political power that they currently possess.[Ref]

First contact with Team Evolution was made on February 22, 2014.[Ref] The group encountered was a research division that made contact after they learned of Union's existence through the disappearance of their Evolution-Inducing Machines.[Ref] The group was led by Rory Donnachaidh and consisted of Crystal Verdine, Sakina, and several other people, none of whom were involved with building the Evolution-Inducing Machines.[Ref]

Team Evolution is an ally of both Gigas and Caldera but stands as a neutral party in their conflicts.[Ref] They share this relationship with other cities.[Ref]

There are "severe penalties for those who willfully choose desertion".[Ref]

Rory Donnachaidh led the group that made first contact with Union, and was chosen for his skill as a Trainer in order to best represent Team Evolution's ideals.[Ref] He is from a settlement that no longer exists[Ref] and moved to Caldera after it ceased to exist.[Ref] He joined Team Evolution when he was around 18.[Ref] He has been assigned to Field Research for 15 years, and became a Lead Director of Field Research, Exploration, and Surveyance 3 years ago, as of 2014.[Ref] He has stated that he has an affinity for Fighting-types.[Ref] Immediately after the mission to Union, he was reappointed to help moderate the conflict between Caldera and Gigas.

Crystal Verdine, Doctor of Pokémon Evolutionary Biology

Crystal Verdine was a member of the group that made first contact with Union. She is from Gigas. While visiting, she was observed shopping, spending time at the University, and sedating Sakina.[Ref] Rory vaguely implied that Crystal is capable of initiating Mega Evolution[Ref], but she was not observed doing so, nor are any of her Pokémon known at this time.

Sakina was a member of the group that made first contact with Union. She seemed to fill the position of a bodyguard for the group, stating that she was "to aid in the research and goals of Team Evolution and protect their members from danger"[Ref] with her primary purpose being protection.[Ref] She is from Gigas. One of her earliest missions was going out into an unexplored wilderness area with only her three Pokémon, during which she defeated multiple Tyranitar.[Ref] While watching the second round of battles in Union she began reacting oddly and was led away by Crystal Verdine[Ref] who took her to one of the group's tents and sedated her.[Ref] Sakina is a God of War Dragon/Steel/Fairy Enlightened who lacks the weakness to Ground-types that she should have based on her types, possibly related to an unknown trait that she posesses.[Ref] She is level 50.[Ref] Rory vaguely implied that Sakina is capable of initiating Mega Evolution[Ref], but she was not observed doing so.

Known Pokémon

Male Gyarados
Minimum Level: 20
Notes: Sakina raised Gyarados from an egg.[Ref] He is exceptionally loyal to her.

Two unknown Pokémon[Ref]
