The Pokemon League of Sinnoh Elite Academy Trainer graduates are the movers and shakers of the Pokemon World. Few gym leaders, Elites, and frontier brains have earned their position without a certification from an Elite Academy. After receiving your acceptance letter to Sinnoh Elite Academy, it’s your turn to be the very best, like no one ever was.
Elite Academy is a statless, literate Pokemon college role play. Students are limited to one Pokemon at the start and may gain more as they progress. We strive to create a literate, collaborative, creative environment where people respect one another and have fun.
MAY 26TH, 2019
We just wrapped up our first Activity Check! As we move forward, the Fall Festival event will be up a while longer. Anticipate some exciting changes coming soon. Thanks for sticking with us!
If you have any concerns, questions, or suggestions for the site, don't be afraid to send any of that to Fox or Lyro. We're always improving!
The three basic tenants of the site are Collaboration, Creativity, and Literacy. These, along with the staff's value of Clarity, guide all site rules and decisions. [break] [break]
RP forums involve many different writers working together to craft an enjoyable story. As such, it is extraordinarily important to be a good collaborator. Work with, not against, your fellow players. Communicate respectfully. Show empathy. Give everyone a chance to shine.
Writing is a creative, artistic endeavor at its core. Work creatively within the site rules. Tell awesome stories. Do something cool with the Pokemon World.
Elite Academy is a “literate-advanced site”. We expect an individual’s writing mechanics and characterization to be of a literate level; writers should be fair, clear, and able to appropriately handle characters and their topics. While there is a minimum word count, it is to prevent people from abusing the system to “grind” in bad faith--do not mistake literacy for just 1000 word posts.
Rules & Expectations
[attr="class","eapcon"] Join the Discord! While not required, you will have much more fun as a member of the community there. CTRL+F "Click here to visit our Discord!" or look just above the Updates box for a link.
Elite Academy is a one account per character site.
Set your account’s display name as Firstname Surname, even if it’s ordered otherwise in the language of origin (eg Japanese).
The graphic dimensions for the account images are a 150 x 150 Avatar and a 270 x 270 Image for the hover.
Do not post in IC areas until your character application is accepted.
All IC posts must be 100 words minimum. To give you an idea what 100 words looks like, the rules up to this point are a little over the minimum count.
Be a good sport! Role play has its roots in role playing games, after all. If you need to always “win” a thread, battle, or argument, you won’t have fun here.
Keep all on-site content PG-13 at max. Swearing, canon-typical violence, mild blood, mild drug usage, and alcohol are okay. Depictions of sex, graphic violence, sexual violence, graphic torture, and otherwise R-rated content are not allowed on site; however, they may be alluded to ICly.
Transphobic, homophobic, racist, sexist, ableist, etc. beliefs and language are not welcome OOC.
