Guess I should re work my post apocalyptic Pokemon RP I've been making.
It is based on one I only made a sign up for last year. In it, the humans misused the powers of pokemon and abused them and ultimately Arceus came down and, in an effort to protect his children, sent them to his realm. There were, however, one of each species of pokemon that were put in crystals and spread around the world by Arceus because one day he knew that humans and pokemon would need each other. In a fit of rage, he also destroyed all the towns and cities. This causes the pokemon world to go into Martial Law.
The RPG takes place about 100 years after this. People come to find that when certain crystals come into contact with certain people, the pokemon inside the crystal would awaken and make a soul link. A soul link is a bond created when a worthy human comes into contact with a crystallized pokemon and awakens the pokemon from its slumber. Now this is where the two ideas split off.
In the original, the pokemon awakened was merely just a soul. This meant that the soul could enter the human body and create a sort of pokemon human hybrid. There were also three stages to this with varying levels of power and different looks. In the new one, the pokemon is living and breathing and acts like the pokemon also had prior to being imprisoned.
In both, the military finds a way to force link a crystal and a human but, to disastrous results. In my new one, it creates the pokemon human hybrid called Chimeras. The chimeras are filled with rage and sorrow and cannot sleep, making them insane but extremely powerful. The military becomes power hungry and uses these insane mutants as a show of power. The military puts shock collars on them in order to control them.
Now here's the conflict.
Many places have actually been able to rebuild to almost exactly how they were prior to Arceus destroying everything. These cities, all across the regions, have made a World Government and, once the areas are rebuilt, they join this government. In other words, places that are still being built are under martial law until they are completely rebuilt. However, the discovery of these crystals made a rift between the World Government or the UN and the Military named, the Crusaders. The military found that with these chimeras they can rule with fear and because ruthless and turned cities and areas which they still controlled into Military Dictatorships rather than the preventative government they were prior. This causes the UN to take action and go against the Crusaders and destroy them. Since the Crusaders are using the forced soul link mutants, the UN employs the soul linked individuals and their pokemon to take care of them.
Unbeknownst to the humans and the pokemon soul linked, this is a test by Arceus to see if humans and pokemon can once again live in harmony.
Now, the thing is, the cities that are rebuilt it's like business as usual. Essentially the only post apocalyptic themes are in the Military controlled areas.
