Welcome to Black City, located in the Unova region. Year, 1953.

A place of luxury, mystery. A lot of people who visit refer to it as the city that never sleeps. Some even say it’s a paradise.

But is it really?

The answer: no. While it might seem like a sort of paradise, Black City is an unforgiving place. It is a city truly built on greed, ruled by a corrupt mayor who favors the wealthy. This is a city where the wealthy are either in charge or living in luxury, while those who are scraping to get by are lucky if they pay their bills on time. Assuming the casinos have not robbed them of their money.

The police are as corrupt as the people who pay them.

Crime rates are pretty high as of right now.

The underground market is completely unregulated, and run by the shadiest of people.

Where is your place here?

----

As the title suggests, this is going to be a moderately gritty noir-esque story set in Black City, the area of Unova exclusive to Pokémon Black Version.

I had tried this idea a few years ago, and hope to get further and play around with it a bit more this time. That said, I have made some changes which will be reflected in the OOc, regarding how this story will be handled.

This story will mostly be a slice of life. There will be violence, some romance, drama, and of course tragedy. All through the eyes of the people who live in Black City, as well as some of the people who are just passing through. However, a lot of the focus of the main story will be set on two rival gangs, and the gang war that breaks out between them later on.

Do not join this roleplay if:
-You are looking for something fast-paced. This story as well as the posting speed, will be fairly laid-back.
-You want 100% historical accuracy of the 1950s. The world of Pokémon is fictional, and I have taken some liberties in that regard.
-You are sensitive to the idea of Pokémon battles being conducted in the same manner that dog fighting and **** fighting are. It won’t be the main focus of the story, but there will be some themes of animal abuse.

Also, basic knowledge of Pokémon is needed.

Additional things:
-Alola will be excluded for the most part. This includes Alolan Pokémon and region variants, and Z-Moves.
-Mega Evolutions are excluded in this story. Mega stones are still unknown at this point.
-To go with the above, Kalos is kind of a mystery as well; though Unova and Kalos do communicate with each other, they aren’t very close.
-I’m also not the best GM but I try…

More information on this stuff (with the exception of the last one, I’ll leave that to you all) will be in the OOC, don’t worry!

I am looking for at least 2 or 3 other people before I throw up an OOC.

Also: Getting this all together has been going slow, as I just had my hours changed at work, so bear with me! I am working as fast as I can, I promise.

Alright, I am going to try my best to have the OOC up this week. I'm only working 3 days and should have some more time if I don't get dragged into other things.

Even if it ends up being the three of us, yes, let's have fun :D
