Welcome to Pokemon Nostalgia! We are a tight knit community of fans of the original 151 Pokemon, if you are a fan of the old school then you are in the right place! Come and explore the Kanto Region in an Alternate Universe where Professor Oak’s Grandson has become the Pokemon Champ, but his rival has gone missing! Without a hero to stop Team Rocket, they have grown more and more powerful. Saffron City is still on lockdown and the police can't stop the gangsters, and the Pokemon League has refused to involve itself!
We are a laid back community that is always looking for more new friends to role play with, we hope that you will explore our site and consider joining us! To begin your journey please see the navigation pane to the right to look over rules and other important information! Thank you for visiting us at PKMNostalgia, our chat box is open for you to ask questions!
A new champion has arisen! But is now the the time for the world to be focusing on sports? Team Rocket has completely taken over Saffron City, and the only trainer who dared challenged them has not been heard from in months.
With all the happenings of late, Professor Oak is in need of a new field research team! Even the same species of Pokemon vary widely between individuals! Grab your Pokeballs and head over to Pallet Town!
Welcome to a brand new year everyone! With the new year comes some big changes! We are switching to an idea that came about by accident with our new Mod Kabuto and Jan Hall. Wild encounters will now have a writing prompt from a pokemod, but the rest will be handled by solo posts of the trainers. Trainers now have control over adding their experience gains and pokemon to their Pokedex, this will help to reduce downtime! The much anticipated Trainer Specializations are now available!
Roxanne bobbed her head and tapped her fingers against the walkman at her waist. She made her way down a small path that meandered through the tall evergreen trees and leafy underbrush. It was lucky that most of the lower branches of the trees had broken off but the viridian canopy left them mostly in shade. Here and there pools of light would flicker about illuminating their path. Roxanne looked up to see one of her Pokémon soaring above the darkness. A small purple rodent scampered towards a patch of light and jumped around happily. Rattata was enjoying his freedom from the pokeball and seemed to like the other Pokémon on his team. Beside Roxanne waddled a blue lizard with a hard shell and light spots from old age. Only Squirtle seemed alert as he scanned the area for potential threats. Magikarp remained in his pokeball for now. The trainer hoped they might find a river or pond soon where she could release her newest Pokémon for some exercise. She stopped and looked around. The path was too thin here for two people to walk side by side, but she knew Kenta and his team should still be nearby.

Kenta walked alongside Roxanne as they went through Viridian Forest together, eyes lowered and fixated on his Poke’dex which he was reading through. He wanted to be prepared for what Poke’mon they were going to face, and how to fend off against them. Naturally in such a forest, it meant that there were going to be a lot of bugs around, which meant his fire starter Poke’mon Enryu came in handy. “Row…” Kenta’s Spearow nicknamed ‘Kojaku’ was on Kenta’s shoulder, calling gently. It still had a ways of overcoming its fears, it was worried calling out would have Gobbles or something similar provoked to attack it.
“Char!” Meanwhile Enryu was dashing all over the place around him, zigzagging across the footpath, climbing and jumping about the trees to build up its speed and physical strength.“Be careful Enryu, don’t overdo it or I’ll withdraw you back in your Poke’ball! And remember no fire attacks, we don’t want to burn the forest down!” Kenta called to his Charmeleon, it must have been hyped up to get stronger ever since fighting Gobbles. It knew that there were other stronger Poke’mon out there, and decided to not waste any time not training.
As they continued walking, Kenta felt considerably warmer due to the weather, but refrained from complaining about it. He wondered why they haven’t bumped into any wild Poke’mon yet, well it might have something to do with all their Poke’mon out and about around them. “I guess we might have to single file that path, do you want to go first?” Kenta looked up from his Poke’dex and asked her when he noticed the road narrow down, she was already in front of him anyway, might as well ask just to be sure.
Enryu’s (Charmeleon’s) Moves: Scatch, Ember, Dragon Rage, Scary Face
Isilme had kept her way after her and Damian put the fire out, it seemed like the wild pokemons had become scared of the flames and were now hiding. "Ahn, he didn't really needed to set the forest on fire." She said to herself looking back at the red haired guy behind her, he and his pokemon seemed to have lots of fun together, the girl looked at the shiny pokemons in her arms. "You liked that right?" The charmander huffed but her tail was waving happily.
The trainer sighed and reached for her pokeball, the one that had Kenya her new Spearow, she hadn't tried battling with the bird yet and that might be a good time as ever to get used to him, the pokeball opened with a flash of red light and the Spearow appeared blinking big brown eyes at her. "Spearow?" Kenya said, Isilme had stopped of course while the bird looked around curious, he probably didn't remembered what had happened after he was captured.
"Hello there, I thought you would want to fly a little." She smiled at the pokemon, the Spearow blinked slowly and then flew up to her head and set himself there messing all of the girl hair in the process. "You little bastard..." Isilme whispered but sighed and kept going, let the bird have his fun. "C'mon Damian you are too slow!" She shouted to the red haired.
Damian had been having a short boxing match with Pyrus as he sat on the floor covered with grass. ok put them up bud He spoke while holding up his hands defensively. In a matter of seconds Pyrus had done the same putting its hands up as Damian hit the charmander's stomach softly in a playful manner it blocked and when Damian's turn came to block he heard a female voice call him as Isilme told him to pick up his pace Pyrus threw his hit.
Just as Damian turned back towards the Charmander to tell Pyrus to start moving he caught the attack right in the stomach before laying on his back, he had the wind knocked out of him for a second as he lay flat backwards the charmander bit his t shirt and tried to drag him. You sure pack a punch for such a little guy he stood up and began to walk with his Pokemon to Isilme's direction. Is it just me or do hear footsteps that don't seem like they belong to us?? He asked while walking behind her since the path didn't allow much room for him to walk next to her.
Little time had passed after his question before he saw two other people ahead of them. Red heads unite ! He spoke loudly enough for them to hear him while Pyrus followed and nibbled on Isilme's leg then looked up at her while she had Gold in her arm. Char-Charm It was as if he was asking for her to let him play with the Pokemon currently in her arms.

Sh*t Your old owner wants you Back Zen the 17 year old spoke while running at full speed through the forest avoiding the security sent after him by the "music career manager" of Zen his Pikachu. There were five of them all in black suits. He had managed to dissapear with Zen for a few days but who wouldn't want him back, luckily both Pantheon and Zen were good runners and tree climbers. Pantheon threw Zen into a tree while he jumped to a diffrenet treeand they both dissapeared in the branches.
They both swung through them quickly as they jumped from tree to tree taking different paths. After a while they met up by a narrow looking Path as Pantheon jumped and rolled to safety before getting right back up, adjusting the skateboard on his back and running at full speed again. Soon his Pikachu dropped from the trees as well and began running at full speed near him Shouldn't have stolen a famous Pokemon should I??but as a musician I couldn't sit back and watch what they did to you back there Pika Zen nodded with a serious face to calm Pantheon down and assure him he had done the right thing.
Luckily he ran into a familiar red head he had taken multiple roof running and parkour classes with. He noticed Damian was surrounded by multiple trainers but he couldn't stand near Damian because of his loud nature so naturally Pantheon stood with the other two trainers ahead of them and began to introduce himself before the guards finally caught up Hey there everyone, I'm Pantheon ronin.. And you are?? He even put up a smile but not one big enough to show his vampire teeth. He was still breathing heavily but tried to hide the fatigue in his tone while leaning on a tree. When the guards finally caught up he stood more with the crowd while making up a fake conversation. Eeew No!! Who the hell buys furry underwear he purposely made up something sick to make the guards loose interest in listening and walk away. Zen was hidden in a tree, once the coast was clear Zen the Pikachu jumped down to join his trainer.
Sorry dude , didn't mean to make you look like a weirdo.. But I had to in order to keep this little guy safe. Nice charmeleon by the way Zen made his way onto Pantheon's shoulder after he explained the situation to the red head with the evolved Charmander. In a matter of seconds he could hear his loud friend Damian speak from behind the two trainers he had joined to blend in. Red heads?! What about old friends?? He replied to his friend.
Roxanne took off her headphones and looked back at Kenta, “Sure, I’ll go first.“ She made her way down the narrow path for several hundred feet being careful not to trip over any loose roots. She was glad she didn’t have to travel alone. The quiet, shady woods were a little creepy and so far she was out of her element. Roxanne was startled by the appearance of two new trainers. She recognized the guy as the one who had lit the fireworks at Pappy’s farm. She thought the girl had been there as well but there had been so much going on at the time that she hadn’t managed to get their names. The guy’s exclamation made her laugh and she responded, “Us gingers need to stick together.” As they neared their new friends the path began to widen. Squirtle inched towards the golden charmander and looked at her with curiosity, “Squirtle?” He wasn’t sure why she was a different color than the other fire Pokémon in the group.
Suddenly, a guy with a skateboard came bursting out of the trees nearby followed by a Pikachu. He stopped near them breathing heavily and began introducing himself. Roxanne was taken aback. Pantheon looked kind of shady but he seemed like he knew the other guy from somewhere. The orange haired trainer smiled, “I’m Roxanne Hunter.” Several thugs in black suits came running past and Pantheon began talking loudly about fuzzy underwear. She picked up on what he was doing and joined in on the conversation hoping the guards would think he had been with the group the whole time. “I have to admit, they are really comfortable...”

“Right, I’ll be right behind you.” Kenta gave a affirming nod back at Roxanne before watching her go through first. His heart than sunk a bit when it came his turn, he wasn’t the most athletic or balanced of people, he blamed himself being around technology most of his life. He nervously followed her lead, making it to the other side without a hitch luckily, and soon was approached by some random person who introduced himself. “Kenta Nakashima, pleased to meet you.” he replied to Pantheon, wondering if the guy was lost or being chased, he seemed to be running away from something, maybe a wild Poke’mon? He then saw the guards from the corner of his eye, and so followed Pantheon’s lead on the ‘unique’ conversation.
“Well statistically speaking, people who wear furry undergarments tend to be more spiritually in sync with themselves due to the closeness with nature, depending on the materials of course. Some say by wearing them they can also see their own spirit animal manifest during times of need.” Kenta winged the most boring and detailed rambling he could think of on the spot while still remaining somewhat on the topic that Pantheon started. He let out a light sigh once the stranger’s pursuers were gone, then noticed a Pikachu jump from a tree back to its trainer. “It’s not a problem, why were they after your Pikachu though? If you don’t mind me asking.” Kenta asked Pantheon conversationally. Well in his opinion he had the right know after being dragged into it so abruptly, but it would be rude to voice it at this point, still wanted to know regardless.
He then heard someone yelling out ‘red heads unite!’ and honestly he almost forgot he was one too before Roxanne laughed and replied to it. “And three redheads are better than one.” Kenta added, shame it would have been quite the trio if Damian had a Bulbasauar or Roxanne had a Charmander instead.
“Char,” Enryu the Charmeleon gave Pantheon a ‘of course’ kind of look and grunt at him being nice (translating to ‘cool’ to him), before walking off to approach @stormhawke and her golden Charmander. “Charmele-on? [Are you well, miss?]” he addressed the female Charmander directly, ignoring Damian’s Charmander naturally as being some irrelevant kid.
Kenta beamed once he recognised the two as well, he didn’t really have an opportunity to properly thank and greet her since the whole Pappy incident. “Hey there, it’s good to see you again! I didn’t have a chance to back at the farm to do this properly. But thank you for helping me and Enryu out, we both appreciate it. May I have your name?” Kenta said warmly Isilme as he approached her alongside his Charmelon who gave an expecting look at her.
“Uh, you were at the farm too, weren’t you?” Kenta then addressed Damian unsurely. Honestly the whole deal back then was quite a chaotic mess, and he barely remembered anyone’s faces besides from people he knew of before, or directly interacted with.[/font]
She aproached the group of red heads and stayed quiet about the strange topic, furry underwear? No way she was speaking about that with them! The silver haired looked down at Pyrus and let Gold to the ground, the shiny Charmander smiled at the Squirtle kindly before getting to Enryu side, "Char- Charmander!" [I'm well, and you are quite bigger now!] She looked back at Pyrus and invited him to come to their side as well.
Isilme looked at Kenta and smiled. "I'm Isilme Redrick, a pleasure to meet you under better circunstances." She laughed softly . "I remember you too Enryu, you did a very good job back there." The girl said to the Charmeleon and looked back to Damian. "Yep he was there, Damian was the one that exploded the fireworks."

The forest's pokemon seemed impassive toward the chattering group of travelers. Nothing so far had swooped at them from the branches or tried to sting them as they passed through the undergrowth; nature was holding back, serving only, at the moment, as the backdrop for their meeting.
There was only one curious detail that welcomed them after they'd convened on the wider path: a faint, tangy scent wafted in from an unknown direction, its smell and flavor distinct from the normal taste of mulch and growth. Just a whiff of it made one's nose tingle.
(( Sending a group PM to all of you shortly. ))
Been waiting long on a pokemon spawn? PM me! I'm Pendulum in the cbox and Guy Richards ingame.
Damian laughed as the two red heads infront of them responded, he was sort of glad he wasn't the loudest nor the weirdest person around at that time. When he was closer he noticed that he knew the two trainers ahead of them. The female trainer and her partner, the little blue Pokemon caused some serious damage to the birds at pappy's farm. The male was the trainer that got to watch his charmander evolve. Damian offered a simple fist pump when he heard their odd conversation.
He hadn't seen the third person who had started the conversation, Damian noticed the black haired male when he stood closer and all he did was laugh with his hand on his face. only you!...haha Only you would speak about furry underwear Dracula. How have you been?? And where did your sea monster go? Damian spoke freely as he got to see the Pikachu drop from the tree.
He noticed the guards Pantheon had been avoiding and lowered his voice.Oh, guess that explains the furry underwear but what do those guys want from you?? And why didn't you just kick their asses?or does being a musician take away your ability to fight? Damian asked while checking up on Pyrus who walked over to the other Pokemon. The squirtle drew his attention Charmander...Char[hey there,do you feel pain from being hit on the shell??] The Charmander asked curiously. Damian shook his head a little in amusement before turning towards the female trainer the squirtle belonged to. How are ya? I'm Damian kent,Nice to meet the trainer behind that little guy's water cannon. I liked it when the bird ontop of the little guy was forced like 4 or 5 feet in the air by the water cannon... Excuse me for. A second
Dracula you should have been more than capable of taking those guys down, just watch Pyrus until I get back. Don't wait up I'll catch up Damian began to sneak after the two guards that had passed them looking for Pantheon.

Pantheon was glad the two trainers had managed to keep up rather well. I truly owe you guys for the save he began to pet Zen while Zen climbed onto Pantheon's shoulder and pulled out the headphones in his bag. Pantheon followed up by playing the Pokemon's favorite song as it began to nod its head with the beat. Just then the male trainer asked him a reasonable question since he had been dragged into something, it was only natural he would want to know what happened. Zen was on a musical tour he is one of the best drummers and had stopped by at Viridian for a concert. I can't play drums at all, I'm more of a guitarist and a pianist so naturally I couldn't believe a pokemon could drum better than most humans so I went to his show. Once I got there the little guy was awesome but I noticed his onwer abused him. Infact he didn't care about Zen , all he wanted was money.
I couldn't stand watching such a musician being mistreated so I stole him. Now their after me Damian hadn't changed a bit he was still loud,violent but quite fun to be around. It was never my sea monster, and it was supposed to be a simple concert on a boat I didn't mean to feed anyone to a sea monster. I thought I told you not to call me Dracula!! Pantheon shouted although he wasn't really angry since he knew it was Damian being himself , while he shouted his Vampire like teeth were exposed then Pantheon nodded when Damian asked him to watch Pyrus while he went somewhere, Damian dissapeared in the forest for a while and Pantheon turned to Roxane. Pleased to meet you miss Hunter, Pantheon spoke more politely as Zen jumped off his shoulder with the Headphones and began drumming with its hands on a nearby tree before climbing higher and drumming on a branch.
Once more miss Hunter Je apprécie vraiment l'aide(-I truly appreciate the help) he had picked up english later on in life originally having a transilvanian father (responsible for the surname)and french mother(responsible for the name), now and again he would speak french with his mother or when he forgot the english term needed for certain things. His statement was followed by a soft laugh. I know it was part of helping me, but I didn't know you'd say fury underwear was comfortable, should have been recording that statement He laughed a little while raising his eyebrow.
Roxanne had to hold her breath to keep from laughing as Kenta droned on about furry undergarments and spirit animals. She hadn’t known him long enough to see him being this silly before and she liked it. Usually she saw him as more kind and hard working. It irritated her to see his Pokémon leveling up so much faster than hers. It was good to see him loosen up and join in on the joke.
Isilme introduced herself and confirmed that Damian was the one who set off the fireworks at Pappy’s farm. The silver haired girl seemed sweet but Roxanne could tell she must have another side to her. Otherwise she would never have made it so far in such a short amount of time.
As his trainer was talking to the other humans Squirtle began interacting with the other Pokémon. Pyrus asked if he could take a hit. Squirtle was eager to show off in front of Gold and Enryu and decided to demonstrate one of his new moves. He puffed up his chest proudly, "Squirtle, Squirt!" [Go ahead, try and hurt me!] Squirtle withdrew his arms and legs as well as his bald reptilian head into his shell. Now he appeared as nothing more than a large blue rock laying in the middle of the path. With his defenses up Squirtle was confident he could take a solid beating without taking any damage.
Roxanne gasped a little as Pantheon shouted, exposing what appeared to be sharp fangs. She recovered quickly realizing that her reaction might have been considered rude. The dark haired musician turned his attention back to Roxanne and he began speaking in French. She didn’t know what he was saying exactly but she recognized the language from a class in high school. Damian had called him Dracula but Roxanne figured Lestat might be a better nickname for the musician. Roxanne couldn’t help but blush, “It was no trouble. Anyways, I was just improvising.” She let out a giggle as well.
Just then she noticed a strange tangy smell. “Hey, does anyone else smell that?” She looked around and noticed Damian had walked off following the guards. She hoped he wasn’t planning on picking a fight, especially since Pantheon had just admitted his Pikachu was stolen. Forgetting the strange smell she returned all her Pokémon but Squirtle to their pokeballs and followed after Damian in what she hoped was a stealthy manner. She liked his personality but he was impulsive and she was afraid he would get them into deep trouble.

“Isilme, well thank you again, and you too Gold.” Kenta replied, now about to put a name to a face, then gave a warm friendly look at her Charmander as well in thanks. He wondered why her skin was such a colour though… perhaps it was a skin mutation? He was shamelessly curious, but decided to let the topic come up later instead then find out then.
The Charmeleon nodded its head at Isilme in agreement at him doing a good job, she definitely knew what she was talking about. “Charmeleon! [And stronger too!]” Enryu couldn’t help but brag a little at Gold, swiping the air in front of him to demonstrate its improved speed and strength. Roxanne’s Squirtle caught its interest though as it withdrew into its shell to demonstrate its defense, and with a slight ‘hmph’ it backed out of the way to allow Pyrus take a shot at it first. While it seemed proper, he did it just so he could look a lot better when he would try after “Char?” Enryu soon turned its head randomly as it smelled something different through its nose, but couldn’t pinpoint where exactly.
Kenta was surprised to realise who Damian was, while he didn’t exactly see him fight, that did explain the ear piercing flash of light that came out of nowhere. “So Damion, you’re responsible for that flash bang huh. I’d get mad at you killing my ears, but I don’t think we’d notice it was a Ditto without it, so thanks.” Kenta said gratefully, offering a hand for him to shake, still oblivious to it being a firework that he threw before.
The redhead listened to Pantheon’s story, thinking it might be a good cover up, but as it went on things began to make sense. If he really did steal that Pikachu with bad intentions, it wouldn’t be close to him otherwise, so it was better off this way than with its previous owner. “I see, well I’m not condoning the stealing itself, but I guess in this case the end justifies the means. The Pikachu is clearly happy to be with you, and that’s all it matters.” Kenta replied with a smile, and had a bit of admiration towards the guy too, the redhead had doubts he could be courageous enough to do what Pantheon did for another trainer’s Pikachu.
After seeing those fangs after Pantheon shouted at Damian, he really couldn’t disagree at him being called Dracula. In reaction, Kenta forced back a chuckle that just turned into an awkward smile instead. It didn’t help that the musician spoke French which was Transylvanian sounding enough for him to make him assume stereotypes. If there was any other reason in keeping Pantheon around, it was to observe if he would show some more vampiric features along the way, preferably not the sucking blood part though. “Uh, smell what?” Kenta asked Roxanne, slightly confused because he couldn’t smell what she could.
The girl smiled sweetly and blinked curious when she saw Roxanne disapear after Damian, she would be useless in a fight without pokemon so she choose to stay back with Kenta and the new comer Pantheon. "I lile your name! Reminds me of a game..." She ponderes for a few seconds and droped the subject chuckling at the pokemons. "They are adorable! Gold, be nice to them." The silver haired told her pokemon reminding the first reaction she had was to bite Pyrus had when them first met.
"Ehh you are really brave! I would never have done something like that." she said impressed and smiled with the thought that crossed her mind, Isilme would have killed the owner and whoever tried to get in her way, but she couldn't tell them that now could she? "You look curious Kenta, don't be afraid to ask something I don't bite!" The silver haired said after noticing his glance in Gold direction. "I wish she would evolve soon! I love dragons!" Isilme make a girlish sound and nearly jumped excited thinking about Charizard.
"Actually, I do smell something different." The silver haired pondered and tried to sense from where the smell was coming. "It's strange, I can't quite say from where it is coming through..." Gold had been too enchanted with the Charmeleon to notice anything out of normal.

Damian|Pantheon Ronin|@roxannehunter|Kenta Nakashima|@stormhawke The smell grew stronger while they idled, transforming from a faint tang to a sharp, acrid odor. It was a bit like someone had combined pickled onions, limes, and gasoline in a blender; the unlikely joining of scents might have almost been sweet if it weren't so sickening.
It was fast becoming apparent that something wasn't quite right. The air took on a yellowish cast, and people and pokemon alike would begin to feel a deep ache in their muscles. It was the latter, though, that would be most direly affected: their smaller lungs filled with the stun spore more quickly than their trainers'. Regardless, all of them would be in trouble if they continued to stick around.
The cloud looked denser--almost opaque--through the trees to their left, some ways off the path.
