THE AQUA FESTIVAL OF HOENN
👑 THEME: "HOENN'S DAWNING WIND"
👑 GENERAL INFORMATION
held in slateport city, the aqua festival of hoenn is long-standing tradition. every year, hoennians gather to participate in a competitive month-long festival filled with summer games which are akin to that of a modern day sports day.
on the sandy shore, three beach houses are repurposed as guild halls for the three houses: the hyacinth huntails, the canary clamperls, and the garnet gorebysses. legends say that southern hoenn was home to three rivaling families. these noble lines often vied for dominion over the southern coast of hoenn, for the sea provided food, trade and comfort from the tropical climate. eventually, these conflicts would subside in favor of a longstanding peace, which has continued on to this day. the actual veracity of this history is disputed by scholars, but the celebration itself has persisted throughout the eras.
the previous winners were the canary clamperls, who control a central stretch of beach. they snuck past the other two houses with their points, taking advantage of the bitter rivalry of the hyacinth huntails and the garnet gorebysses who control the west and east shores respectively. curiously, this year, an odd mist occasionally blankets the shore, casting the beach in ominous scarves of grey and pink winds...
👑 OOC EVENT PERKS
flying-type pokemon have their evolutions discounted by 50%.

👑 MEMBER CARD
after your character chooses a house (your decision), fill out a member card in the appropriate house's roster board. in the roster board, there will be a mega thread to post your member card. your member card will also house a section to track which endeavors you have completed and how many points you have earned for your house.
if the member card is too coding intensive for you, feel free to make a post that is wholly text-based.
please refrain from roleplaying in these boards. the boards do not reward you with pokedollars and are meant to be an ooc directory! although this is mostly fluff, some details such as your close allies may come into play in the fulfillment of endeavors.
each house will possess endeavors for their members to complete. although there are shared endeavors across the board, each house contains a list of endeavors that specifically pertains to their values, aesthetic and more.
by the end of the event, the house with the most points will win and record their victory in hoenn's history. regardless of which house wins, every house and their members will receive rewards. nevertheless, the top earners from each house may receive a special opportunity to partake in once the mists clear...
every endeavor that is completed will net you 100 points for your house. currently, there are no rules against having multiple characters of yours in the same house, but it is encouraged to spread your characters out into different houses. furthermore, completing an endeavor will net you a reward (e.g. items, pokedollars, infamy) that can be redeemed at the end of the event for the character.
endeavors that feature prompts for your post such as "use bite or crunch" or "use the color blue" should not be stacked multiple times within one post, if possible. however, prompts such as "complete a thread with a member of the garnet gorebysses" and "complete a thread inside the garnet greenhouse" can be stacked.
the links to each house's endeavor lists can be found here: hyacinth endeavors / canary endeavors / garnet endeavors
👑 HOW ABOUT ROCKET?
team rocket understands that the top earner of a house receives substantial renown and wealth throughout the region. to pursue further influence within hoenn, the organization would desire having one of their own members become the head representative for one house, if not all of them. furthermore, it is said, that the top earners of each house may be acknowledged in more ways than one.
