ask-team-snl asked: "♢ Religions in the pokemon world"

((OOC: Could you have picked an anymore complicated question that is simply NOT able to be…well…SIMPLE?! Asdfghkl;  TAKE NOTE I AM LITERALLY SPILLING WHAT COMES TO MY HEAD! I’M SORRY IF SOME OF IT IS WRONG!)

There are three main religious beliefs that are broken down:

Arceism , Giratinism, & Unioism

Arceism

The Equivalent of Catholicism

The belief in One truly Holy ‘mon that is the creator of all and guides all with His words and gives mercy to us all. That is how Arceism views their belief. Arceus was said by millions to be the creator of all; of the galaxy, of the planet, of the lands and seas and airs all around, and the true ancestor to those who are alive to this day. He died for the sins of His children and brought religious safety and hope to all. He is the balance and One who, in the eyes of Arceists, lays out your future, and the obstacles you must go through to get to the end. He is the Divine Being of all and of Nature too. It is believed Crescelia is his devoted and angelic moon follower that blesses the world with the beauty of the moon and serves as Arceus’ guard.

Giratinism

The Equivalent of Satanism

The belief of the True One being the Banished “Creator”, Giratina. Unfortunately, many view this religion as a truly sinful and evil religion to believe. The rules are viewed as wrong and everything against the beliefs of Arceism. Magic and Black Magic are two separate things that have been signified with Giratinism, however they still are viewed as “evil” and against the laws and creations done by Arceus. More spiritualism and symbolism is used in this religion, to give great honor to Giratina and his fallen Angel, Darkrai; who is also viewed as the former guard of Arceus and was banished by Crescelia when suspected and rumored “caught” having been objecting the views and rules of Arceus.

Unioism

The “Hybrid” Equivalent of Spiritualism, Buddhism & Hinduism

This religion is the most diverse and branched out religion out of the three. Most believe there is eternal balance between everything. For everything bad thing that happens, good things counter it out. For every good deed done, the mind and body are cleansed and happiness is earned. It matters not how big or how much there may be, it is always there in front of our eyes. But we have to be wise enough to see it. There is no one “God” that is in Unioism, nor is there one “Evil God”. But they balance each other out, and the teachings of accepting and understanding them are believed to bring one closer to becoming a part of everything around them. Souls are watching over every ‘mon, and each living ‘mon contains their own soul that different from another ‘mon’s, no matter bloodlines. The discovery of this religion is relatively unknown, being one of the oldest out of the three main articles of religion. Unioists believe their paths are chosen by themselves, and that it is changing everyday they make decisions, that no one can determine and plan out their futures for them. They believe the spirits and souls and passed loved ones around them are there to guide and when the time comes of passing, to lift them and support them into the afterlife of everything.

Other Legendaries themselves play a vital role in beliefs more so than with religion nowadays. Tribes and other individuals honor and worship many of them. Many would consider them Unioists, but it’s not the case. But because Legendaries are roles in beliefs, not religion (aside from Arceus & Giratina), that’s for another time and ask~

(OOC: My Apologies! We all read that wrong XD; )

Jade: We came here as an escape. I promised to protect Nootau. But even so, we do not wish to live in the city itself, for many ‘mon we do not nor cannot trust very much.

moonlight-cascades asked: "'Apologize. I don't care what happened in between you two, try making up for it, t'anke.' She felt her mood sullen more as she walked through the forest with a bag in her paws. Nootau sent her on this little mission after seeing her trouble as of late. "He doesn't realize that Yue probably is too stubborn to forgive me when I didn't know it was him until it was too late." She said to herself. "I hope I can find....him?" She paused when she saw a tall figure walk off. "Yue?""

He never thought a day would come where hearing his own name could bring such a sharp stinging sensation to his ear drums. He cared not for whom it came from, for it was definetly not his partner who called him, so as quickly as the Larvitar spoke he picked up his pacing. The bandaged Sneasel sped away as quickly as he could without straining himself, in hopes of avoiding an interaction with someone else claiming to be his “friend”.

-

Jade jumped and started to back away when she saw a familiar face. “Oh! Hi Dawn! Is it okay if I come in and chat with you?” She called over the loud Fletchling’s chirps. She placed on paw on her earhole to muffle out a portion of the loudness. 

image

"Sure! Come right in, the door’s open! You’ll have to meet me upstairs though, I can’t climb down on my own right now!" The Braixen called from the window. She held a paw near her maw as she raised her voice as well, trying to speak over the noise of the screechy Fletchling. Seconds after she spoke she poked her head back inside to wait for her friend, leaving the window opened.

Jade nodded and walked into the base. She dusted off her tashina before taking it off respectfully, folding it up after she retrieved the bag filled with the herb and berries. “Why? What’s wrong, Dawn? Jelly legs?” She called from down on the first level as she walked up the stairs.

She gasped when she saw Dawn. “D-Dawn! You evolved!” She exclaimed in semi-shock and semi-happiness. 

"Pretty much." The Vixen replied as she crawled back towards the table. Her first action was to grab the tea and take another sip. She spat out a little of it as it had become too cold for her taste. As she waited for her friend to come up the stairs she took her staff out of her tail fluff and lit a flame over it’s tip to warm her tea in the meanwhile.

image

She looked back at the Larvitar as she had reached the upper floor, smiling proudly. “Yup!” She placed her staff right next to her afterwards, then settled herself a little better over the pillow chair and took a hold of her tea with both paws.

image

"I made some oran leaf tea if you’re interested! If you want some I should have some extra cups in the cupboard." She said, pointing towards the tall wooden cabinet before taking a sip of her tea.

Jade smiled. “Actually, I hope you don’t mind me making some for myself that much.” She said. “I wanted to bring these over to you first.” She walked over to Dawn and placed the bag on top of the table.

"It…it was for Yue. As an apology to him for what happened a little while back. But he refused to take it when I caught up to him." She said, her face turning into a frown as she walked over and began to make herself some tea.


skywiz asked: "♢ Sandstream (The Pokemon ability)"

It’s a phenomenon that has baffled many non-Sand Stream users. Because if the ‘mon that has this ability is calm, the affects either do not last long, or never occur outside of a fight, despite what records tell.

Tyranitar hold great power that allows them to manipulate and conjure up massive sandstorms in and out of fights. They have “sand pouches”, which are the large holes that are located in their legs and above their chest plates. If in a non soiled location, they use the sand that over time develops in their sand pouches. These pouches can produce massive amounts of soil depending on how frequent they eat earthly based objects, like rocks, soil, and types of stones. 

Like a magnet almost, the sand can be retrieved and sucked back into a Tyranitar’s body.

In some cases, the Sand Stream ability can be used in more interesting formats; like Jade with her Sandstorm, they can create obstacles, shields, weapons, and tendrils from it. 

Hippowdon are a lot “messier” when it comes to their Sand Streams. Because they naturally live in sandy patches or create large sand nests, they have an unlimited source of the soil in their backside’s holes and thus when enraged, Sand Stream is usually summoned from there. To mother Hippowdon, it’s a defense mechanism that they use to protect their newborns.

Newborn Hippopotas themselves can’t really create good Sand Stream storms. More like large puffs that confuse their enemies so that they can either attack or flee.

team-fieryspirit asked: "♢ Power sources (like electricity)"

Most power sources are just a simple fire and kindling to keep it alive in many homes. It does cause enemies to locate a ‘mon easier, but it in general has served the same purposes since it was discovered and harnessed; to keep those alive and warm. 

Electricity is almost a fancy power source to get. Lightbulbs and other creations that need electricity are pretty expensive to make. Even with Electric types around to help, it’s still a big price to charge on not only companies, but residents too. But, if the deals are made properly, places like restaurants, larger homes, etc. can pay for it. electricity can be made through Pokemon (obviously) or, more commonly in rural farmlands, through hydroelectricity by a water wheel or two. 

Funnily enough, it is more common to find a residential ‘mon with both electricity and fire to keep a steady life. Fire is free, can cook food better and more thoroughly, while electricity produces better lightning in a room and is less of a threat in burning down the building.

swsuniverse:

I was thinking about doing this earlier, and I’ve decided to go through with it.

Send an ask with a ♢ and a Pokemon species or PMDU-related topic and I will explain a headcanon for that thing!

I’m in! :)

teamparabite asked: "Jade what are your thoughts on evolution, do you see yourself as a pupitar anytime soon?"

image

Jade:

I’m unsure… I don’t want to break the promise I made years ago to someone dear to me. I’m happy for other ‘mon and Larvitar that evolve, but… I’m lost on it for myself.


adventureinabox asked: "If Nootau is deaf, or if even partially, wouldn't he be able to understand sign language? I figure it would be pretty interesting to see a quadruped use sign language, if they could at all."

image

Nootau: Actually, I do understand sign language. Even though recently Jade has stopped using sign language, we are both very fluent in sign language. Ina had five fingers on her paws, so she taught me how to understand it. In both quadruped or humanoid format. So I can usually understand a ‘mon that’s quadruped like myself. If not, I merely ask them to write it down on a paper or on the ground.

I can do sign language too, but because I’m guessing that many wouldn’t know how to understand a three claw-toed Absol signing, I don’t do it often.

Most of the time, though, I just read a ‘mon’s lips or listen to their souls. 


mathewryf asked: "How often do you two get to eat out? Are there any particular food joints you like?"

image

Jade: Actually we don’t do it often! We are pretty good cooks ourselves and make up pretty good meals with what we can find. But if we are in the mood for something else, we either travel to the supermarket on the outskirts of the main city of Andalusst, or we go to this delicious joint called ‘Weng Ju Spice”. They have pretty good food, a lot in varieties.

image

But because Nootau is mostly a carnivore and his main nutrient supplies comes from meat, he tends to stay away from those more so than I. I don’t push him, cause I know how touchy the subject of eating meat in Andalusst can be. The only exception he makes is eating herbs and berries.

Anonymous asked: "How did you come to dreamer's eye?"

image

Jade: I’m a little unsure as to what you mean. That’s not my exact forte. It’s Nootau’s really.

image

Nootau: I guess she’s right. If I’m understanding correctly. I can’t exactly see another ‘mon’s dreams. But I can see their souls while they dream. Jade however does say my jewel is sort of like a “portal” to seeing something inside of myself while I sleep. I’m not sure what she means on that, sadly. But I do not ask, for it is something she doesn’t wish to speak of much.


Anonymous asked: "How is it that the two of you can "see" souls?"

image

Jade: Well it’s a complicated thing to explain, but I can try my very best to answer it. I see souls a lot differently than Nootau does. I “see” them through the landscape around us; through the earth, wind, water, and fire. But that’s how I was trained. Pokemon, I’ve discovered over the years of study, all have an inner “eye”, which let’s them “see” souls; but it takes time, a lot of patience and plenty of practice in order to possess the ability to use this “eye”. Mainly for those who do not naturally get the upper advantage in seeing another ‘mon’s soul. Nootau was born with that. I wasn’t. So I had to go through extensive training for years. Not simply months or days. But I think that has something to do with my family bloodline.

Unfortunately, the main goal I was aiming for initially was to actually see them like he can with just a blink of my eyes. I can’t do that, I quickly found out. I need to be able to sense them through other things like the ground. Because I’m a ground and rock type, I can sense these souls and spirits of objects — for instance, trees and rocks — through the soil a lot easier. It’s a very unique gift I’ve learned to cope with and respect.

image

Nootau: I was born with the ability. Those that were in the tribe I was formerly part of see it as me becoming an Herbal Shaman. Which I did. But initially I didn’t want to, even in my sick state. Nowadays, I possess a greater power to communicate and see souls because of my deafness. It’s how I hear. I can hear and see the thrums of a soul when a ‘mon is angry, sad, happy, confused, excited, or even dying. It was once a pain to deal with, cause the world never stops thrumming with souls, but I’ve learned to channel out seeing and hearing the souls willingly.

I have my wa uspewicakiyapis to thank for all the valuable lessons they have taught me.

-topples over seeing the comments and filled up inbox- Sweet creator of Arceus you guys! O.O Okay okay I’ll get to answering those! It’ll take some time cause i’m making new icons but I’ll answer!


Does anybody care?

I’m stuck between a log and a rock on whether or not I should actually keep this blog.

No one RPs anymore unless I start first. No one even asks me random or curious questions anymore. Kinda defeats the purpose of having a RP blog if no one wishes to even chat up and communicate with my characters or I.

idk, what do you guys think?
