This world is inhabited by creatures that we call pokemon. People and pokemon live together by supporting each other, but now the scourge threatens the safety of the entire region. Kohaku has become a dangerous place, where children stay at home and only brave souls go adventuring.
Welcome to KOHAKU. Come for the nightmares. Stay for the tea and crumpets.

Proserpina Citylatest post by admin in ASSISTANT JO10 topics : 10 posts
The capital city of Kohaku, Proserpina City is the region's pride and joy. It offers anything you can imagine from a city, and if you can't find what you want in its shimmering Queen's Boulevard, you'll find it in the dirty slums of Grimer's Court. All government buildings, including the Pokemon Association HQ, the pokemon center, and Proserpina Gym, can be found on Printemps Street. On one side, the city faces an open sea, and on the other, Ceres Forest.Proserpina GymMagnolia DocksLetum WarehouseArecura Way
Ceres Forestlatest post by admin in VISCOUNT FLORIAN12 topics : 13 posts
A prized nature reserve, Ceres Forest has remained more or less free of the scourge thanks to the vigilance of the Ranger's Union. As long as you stick to the clearly marked path and make camp only at designated sites, traveling through the forest is perfectly safe. However, straying even just a little almost guarantees an encounter with a wild pokemon--or another trainer. It's a perfect place for newbies to train their pokemon.Juturna VillageCaca's GroveAmber GladeMessor Rock
Di Manes Cavernslatest post by admin in RANGER ISAK11 topics : 71 posts
Originally used as a sepulcher for the rich and elite of Kohaku, Di Manes Caverns is a cave with rich minerals and precious stones all along the cave walls. A winding, claustrophobic tunnel (long since stripped of visible gold and gems) leads travelers through to the other side. Mining and theft are heavily discouraged by the trainers and leader of the Di Manes Gym, located in the deepest depths of the caverns.Di Manes GymAvernus LakeVulcan DepthsLaetus Catacombs
Nerio Citylatest post by admin in RANGER SA'DI45 topics : 711 posts
A far less proper city than Proserpina, Nerio City was known for being a den of thieves, liars, and other such villainy. A cutthroat corporate elite ruled the city, and crime rings ruled the underground. Perhaps it's only justice that Nerio is now an urban death zone, crawling with scourge. Anyone that could run to Di Manes to safety already have. Those that are left have nowhere to go or no way to get there.Nerio GymVesta City SquareCloacina RowBellona Hills
Lake Paxlatest post by admin in RANGER TAM26 topics : 603 posts
Lake Pax is the root of the hades virus, where pokemon researchers at the secluded Pax Institute sought to genetically enhance pokemon to ensure certain natures and individual traits. Little did they know, the project would backfire horrifically. Now, Lake Pax is lost to humanity altogether, with the research institute left in ruins. Wild pokemon can survive by keeping their heads down, but trainers and their pokemon won't escape unscathed.Pax InstituteMuta BoathouseLemures CircleLympha Bog
Decima Townlatest post by CAEDMON in swarming ~ swablu21 topics : 322 posts
Unlike Nerio City, Decima Town crumbled under the Scourge's first onslaught. Now, the town is nothing but ruins, but at least the Scourge dares not step foot there again, because simply to breathe the air is to breathe poison. Decima's gym leader has ensured that the fallen town in uninhabitable for anything living. Only the gym's most dedicated trainers remain, immune to their own poisons. Their only concern now is battling the Scourge.Decima GymPal ParkMefitis UndergroundEpona River
Hespera Citylatest post by king in yeah [challenge]18 topics : 105 posts
Robber barons rose to power in Hespera City generations ago, and their families have been squabbling ever since. The deluge of unwanted refugees have become the latest subject of political debate--not to mention the scourge on their doorstep. The gym leader's placed a psychic forcefield around the city, but the scourge are content to wait out a siege. They will all starve, if they don't self-destruct first.Hespera GymCharites BoulevardMinerva CollegeDevera Heights
Mors Desertlatest post by giefunghelnawor in ONLINE FULL HD OFFSTAGE ELEMENTS14 topics : 201 posts
Dry and hot during the day, freezing cold at night, Mors Desert is more or less what you'd expect of such a place. Its scorching heat and unbearable cold is a gift to Kohaku, as only the most resilient of the Scourge can cross it--but cross it they shall. Eastern Kohaku feels secure in the strength of the desert, but the Ranger Union currently fights to delay the scourge. They know for a fact that it's not a question of if but of when.Fortuna OasisLua HighwayTellumo AmphitheatreThe Parcae
Cura Villagelatest post by citrus in [r] short stories of fallen kings9 topics : 98 posts
A lovely old town where tradition still holds strong, getting to Cura is least a ten mile trek from any modern road. Visitors should be sure to visit both their curative hot springs and famed training dojos. Trainers have journeyed here from all of the world to hone their body and soul. All is at peace in Cura Village, but while no one's saying it out loud, everyone knows that if the Scourge attacks, everyone's screwed.Cura GymEgeria FallsCybele CircleMellona Estate
Aurae Citylatest post by nette in SAGE RUTH8 topics : 99 posts
Aurae City is the highest point in Kohaku, and it's difficult to get there without flying pokemon. The path up, by land or by air, is filled with dangerous pokemon, but the city is a stunning sight: glorious splendors of classic architecture blended with gleaming feats of modern technology. If you don't deserve to be in Aurae City, you can't get there. That's the way it's always been, and the locals wouldn't have it any other way.Aurae GymPorrima CityInvictus PeakSilvanus Heights
Sol Strandlatest post by nette in swarming ~ jellicent20 topics : 219 posts
A beach resort where you'd least expect it, Sol Strand lies on the other side of Mt. Aurae, and it's nothing but perfect sand and crystal clear waters. Connected by port to the rest of Kohaku, it's a prime vacation spot that also hosts the accalaimed Kohaku University. Between the sun and the breeze, surf's always up, but now times are grimmer as the University redoubles its efforts to combat the scourge.Salacia CenterNeverita BoardwalkKohaku UniversityS.S. Claire
Somnus Ruinslatest post by citrus in kleenex [event]10 topics : 88 posts
Somnus Ruins lie upon a string of islands that's strictly off-limits to all but the hardiest of adventureres. The region's strongest wild pokemon roam here. Very little is known about the history of the ruins, but the archaeologists believe that it used as a burial ground by an ancient pokemon civilization. The ruins are crowned by a tower that reached for the sun. How such a grand civilization ended is a mystery.Crypts of NonaIsis GardensTower of JanusAion Pools
