Behold! The third episode of the amazing Team Nova RP is here!

So the Premise via HDDeception

10 years after BW2, an organization called Team Nova has taken over the world. With a technology called StarBurst, they can take over the minds of almost any pokemon on a whim, even through their pokeballs. Trainers are useless. Most Gym leaders and Elite Four members are dead. Soldiers rose up to replace them. Weapons and technology are almost always preferred to a team of pokemon at your side.

StarBurst takes the form of an energy weapon, whether blasters, lightsabers, or halberds. NVE against a human, but instant mind screw to a pokemon. Only Legendary pokemon, or those with a very strong life-long bond to a human can hope to resist StarBurst. The more pokemon you carry, the more thin your bond with them is spread, hence you should probably only carry one. Two max.

There are three factions of resistance:

Xerneas: Team Plasma. They refuse to use StarBurst but will fight for peace regardless.
Mewtwo: What is left of the Pokemon League. They use StarBurst as a means to an end.
Yveltal: No formal organization. Those who seek the destruction of Nova at any cost are sought out by Yveltal to be his agents. Needs more members!

Nova is horribly OP, and pretty much nobody has a chance against one of the admins (Jay, Duncan, Celena) let alone the Leader (Maurice) one on one. They have the technology to wipe an island off the face of the Earth, and then some. GM and cyborg pokemon are not out of the question, but haven't really been explored yet.

Johto is Nova HQ, Kanto and Unova are also heavily guarded. Sinnoh and Hoenn less so. Orre is not under Nova control, and Kalos has been wiped off the map. Other regions haven't really been fleshed out yet.

Legendary pokemon are immune to StarBurst, but that doesn't mean people haven't captured them. You are allowed to have one as a partner, but not Ubers, and a lot have been spoken for. Off the top of my head, the ones available are:

Legendary birds, Mew, Legendary beasts, Lati@s, Crescelia, Heatran, Shaymin, Muskedeers, Weather Genies, and Meloetta.

As for trainers like Red, use them sparingly, but use them if you want. I don't exactly know who's taken so far, but ask and we'll let you know. For sure, Red, Blue, Ethan, Dawn, N, Alder, Benga, Steven, and Nate (BW2) are all either taken or dead.

Someone save this post as a catch-up to other new people should they appear. That was a long sum up.

Ready. Set. Go!

(Proto...you added yourself to the npc list)

Desert Resort, Mewtwo Camp

Phineas's eyes lit up again.

"Alright then, lets be on our way!"

He opened the doors to the capsule, jumped inside and poked his head back out.

"Roger, get the team!"

Turning to Doe, he added

"You have Manaphy right? And bring along anyone you you want to join the expedition. I understand you're all a bit shellshocked now though so take your time."

Also, to anyone who doesn't like Xaveltal, sorry. They WILL be un-fused in the final battle, if people don't like it that much....

Dear guy about the Mega-Stones, in case people haven't noticed, the mysterious stones and ring/necklace/gauntlet are Mega-Stones. I have Lucarionite, Absolite, Mawilite.

The Cave Of Origins - Xavier

Xavier leaves the cave, being bowed to by all the members.

Xavier flies up into the air, trying to get used to his wings. He glides around, shooting balls of Psychic power into the air.

“Xavier! Come down here!” A voice yells.

Xavier lands beside Silver, who begins to speak.

“So, you're the new leader?” Silver announces.

“Well, I am I guess... It's kind of by default!” Xavier laughs.

“Well, I have to tell you something... In private. Yveltal and I were working on a plan, he was going to tell you after your mission... But I guess that didn't work out.”
