The Factions of Kasei
Blurb on the factions here. Their role in Kasei and blah, blah, blah.
Are teams exclusive?
No, there are a lot of ways to be the best, and many paths to self-improvement. The point is, the journey never ends. Carve your own path to the top and bring it on. You can only wear one uniform at a time, though, and we'll all be waiting for you to switch out. Remember, you can't run from a trainer battle, and that goes double from us.
What do I have to do to join?
First, you'll have to compile a list of your skills and weaknesses, and give a little bit of detail as to their origins and extents. Our GMs use weaknesses to fuel other team's RP against you, and your strengths to assign you plots against them. Different teams encourage different skills. We also pair people based on those skills to cover each other and share common interests. Second, you'll have to make a team, and be ready to fight in doubles battles, so you'll want to spend some time discussing roles and strategy with your teammates. When you're in uniform you can only use pokemon that represent your team. Such as fire types for Solar, water types for Lunar and so forth.
Why Should I Join a Team?
Each team comes with its own advantages, from private locations stocked with pokemon of your team's type, to providing housing and food, and earn boosted AP for participating in GM-run plots.
Team Lunar can provide you with everything. Absolutely everything. You just have to be smart enough to understand how to get or invent it. Their labs are home to Psychic, Water, Steel, and Poison types. They'll give you experimental technology to play with and even destroy. Pilot a giant pokemon robot into battle and build skyscrapers with a laser-guided concrete blaster.
Team Solar offers much: the chance to be a goddamn hero, tournament prizes, gym badges, and people who can give you battles on equal footing. They're giving you the gift of a stronger you. They have Fire, Flying, Fighting, and Dragon types and will protect you while you sleep.
Team Stellar asks what took you this long to ask? What they have is their own private training grounds, stocked to the brim with rare and powerful examples of theirteam elements. Ice, Dark, Electric, and Ghost types are on tap, 24/7. You bring the pokeballs, they supply the 'mon. They have an underworld connection that supplies them with resources and equipment. Not to mention they can freely raid other teams and take their stuff too.
Team Terra offers a community of sharing and friendship, and who pairs people with kind hearts to those they can really help. They have a campground where Bug, Rock, Grass, and Ground types are willing to help them with our work. Team Terra can take you in and give you a place to live amd food to eat.

Information on the Teams
_.._ T E A M L U N A R .' .-'` To protect the world from superstition, / / To discover truth beyond imagination; | | To explore what none have known before, \ \ To test our theories until we're sure; '._'-._ Team Lunar, libraries fill as we write, ``` Surrender now, to our bold insight.
Who are we? We are doctors, nurses, scientists, teachers, students, architects, researchers, professors, engineers, inventors, the studious, the experimenters. We are the tinkers that design the better world. We stand on the shoulders of giants, and record what we see.
What do we want? Knowledge, to understand the universe and everything in it. Tools, to better empower everyone. Criticism, for only the truth can endure the withering light of scrutiny. Pokemon break physics in ways that shouldn't be possible, and understanding how and why will give us mastery of these forces.
How can you help? Team Lunar is accepting internships. We need your technical skills, your ideas, your brilliance. Come work for us, and help carry out our experiments, document your results, get published. Develop cures for diseases and treatments for injuries. Crunch some numbers for us and review our work. Try out our crazy toys and let us know how they explode. Our cake isn't always a lie.

Who are we? We are soldiers, police, adventurers, firefighters, pokemon breeders, martial artists, strategists, athletes, heroes, the courageous, the champions. We are those who charge into danger and fight our way through, always moving forwards.
What do we want? Justice, for those who break the rules, harm others, or abuse pokemon. Challenge, to test ourselves and eliminate our weaknesses. Heroism, to inspire everyone to try their very best at training pokemon. Pokemon unleash our full potential, and they in turn rely on us to provide training and strength.
How can you help? Team Solar wants you. It doesn't matter if you're bad at training and battling. We can fix that with practice. Don't be discouraged by losing. That's how you improve. We're fighting for people who will need your help, your strengths, and your talent. We organize tournaments and provide self-defense classes, so victims of pokemon crime will be able to fight back on their own. Find someone who lacks confidence, and teach them everything they need to know to build a team to stand against legends.
/\ /\ T E A M S T E L L A R / \ \/ To protect the world from stagnation, \ / To control the flow of information; \/ /\ To profit is our bottom line, //\\ To rule the land for all of time; \\// Team Stellar, aspirations shining bright, \/ Surrender now, or you'll fear the night.
Who are we? We are lawyers, actors, idols, hackers, politicians, businessmen, accountants, news reporters, spies, clergy, the wealthy, the influential. We are the hands that pull the strings. We are the top of the pyramid, and we run things.
What do we want? Money, filthy shining lucre. Fame, our names up in lights. Power, to shape and organize things. Pokemon are tools, be they beautiful enough to draw crowds, subtle enough to tilt the scales in our favor, powerful enough to protect our interests, and shove aside anyone in our way.
How can you help? Team Stellar is recruiting. We are officially sanctioned by the Pokemon League, so you won't be asked to kill anybody or anything like that. But we are the ones who play loosest with the rules, and we have license to antagonize, so if you have a certain lack of morals, are prone to violent outbursts, and are looking for a safe outlet that won't get you on the bad side of an Arcanine-fusion named Jenny, feel free to stop in and get your hands dirty with some of our covert missions.
@@@@@@ T E A M T E R R A @@@@@@@@ To protect the world from isolation, @@@@@@@@ To raise us out of desolation; @\\||//@ To overgrow the forces of greed, | | To render help to those in need; / \ Team Terra, helping solve the people's plight, /____\ Surrender now, and let's do what's right.
Who are we? We are farmers, social workers, mechanics, chefs, authors, manufacturers, miners, charities, parents, children, friends, the homeless, the unemployed. We are both the huddled masses and those willing to help, brought together to make the world a better place.
What do we want? Peace, so the infrastructure we build isn't destroyed. Unity, so we can get everyone on the same page with what needs to be done. Friendship, forming robust support networks to help each other. Pokemon are people too, and deserve our respect and love. Teamwork and a sense of community are crucial.
How can you help? Team Terra needs donations. We need food. Clothes. Toys. Help us deliver meals to hungry people. Help us find jobs for the unemployed. We have a lot of community service goals to meet. Route maintenance, city beautification, constructing low-cost homes, getting sick people the care they need. And we're willing to do what's right even if it doesn't match up perfectly with what's legal. People are more important than that. Join with us, and you can save people.
