near the last known location of regirock's tomb, several trainers have stumbled across an ominous opening. inside, they will find the ruins of the legendary titan, riddled with traps, treasures, and the mystical unknown. no one knows what awaits them but one thing is for sure — a new arc begins. despite the thin veil of peace, the public still faces unease.
after the ultra beast war, hoenn begins to heal. the megalopolan invasion may have failed; however, it is clear there is much more at stake. a prophecy revolving around a cyclical meteoroid, the appearance of necrozma and a dangerous and viral alien threaten the safety of the region once more.
with rocket's new boss, the resurgence and reappearance of the crime syndicate's presence is imminent. the league has done its best to repair its reputation, and with the victory of a war under their belt, perhaps it is enough. but the seeds of distrust have already been sown in the ravaged land of this region, causing many to wonder what will grow?
HELP THE BERRYMASTER KEEP HOENN'S HARVEST BOUNTIFUL
THE BERRYMASTER HAS ENTRUSTED YOU with a small plot of his land thanks to your burgeoning reputation. With four plots, you will be able to sow your own garden of berry trees. Although the size of your gardenscape may be limited, with tender care and love, you may reap a bountiful harvest.[break][break][break]
TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE GARDENS, you must:[break][break]
You can only have one garden per player account (i.e. your characters won't have individual gardens); however, you can imagine all of your characters having a garden if you so wish. Thankfully, the items and bonuses you receive in your garden can be accessed by all of your characters.[break][break][break]
YOUR GARDEN PLOT
INITIALLY, you will start with four plots to sow your seeds. However, there is a possibility for the berrymaster to expand your garden in the future. copy the code below and make your own thread after purchasing a watering can.[break][break]
Feel free to code your own garden template if you would like to truly call your garden your own! You can ICly flavor-text this system by calling the garden your character's own personal garden as well.[break][break]
ON YOUR WAY TO BECOMING A GREEN THUMB, challenges and surprises await you. However, don't fret. Read this section to understand how to work the land![break][break][break]
purchase a watering can, seeds, and other garden items from the site shop thread. as a note, some berries are gated behind the purchasing character's infamy, but benefits can be reaped by any character.
you will only be able to plant seeds on vacant plots.
create a garden thread in the garden board found here: [x]
"plant your seeds" in the plots, making sure to note in the coding when they will reach full maturity.
if you would like, you may update your growing berry trees yourself using the respective sprites here. feel free to use the fully-grown berry tree sprite as long as you indicate when you can harvest it.
post in moderation requests or the site shop once your berry tree is at full maturity to reap the benefits of your harvest; feel free to keep tabs on what has been harvested/redeemed and post the harvest list in your PC.
berry trees that have been harvested and can not regrow must be planted again by purchasing a new seed.
WILD POKEMON may stumble into your garden, attracted by the sweet scent of your berry trees. these function like a wild encounter which you must post (any word count) to chase away or catch with a pokeball; however, you may purchase a scarecrow in order to do away with wild encounters all together. If you choose to ignore the wild encounter for a week, the pokemon may damage, trample or eat a berry tree.[break][break]
Furthermore, random events may occur in your thread, leaving new seeds or providing flavor text to your maintenance of the garden.[break][break][break]
YOUR POKEMON MAY PLAY SPECIAL ROLES in your garden as well. If you place a fully-evolved pokemon in your garden with the move rototiller or the ability chlorophyll, harvest, honey gather, overgrow or ripen, they will halve the time it takes for berry trees to reach full maturity.[break][break]
You can also evolve your grass-type pokemon if you place them in your garden. Evolving a grass pokemon takes two weeks.[break][break]
Only one grass pokemon can be placed in the garden at a time. During their stay in the garden, these pokemon can not participate in events.[break][break][break]
Like the scarecrow, placing a pokemon in your garden takes up a plot, so you need to decide if you want sacrifice the maximum potential of your harvest!
