Set in the original region of Arciel, Legends Rising is a route-inspired, but not strictly route-based, Pokemon roleplay. Pick a faction, pick a class, and strike out into the wild to take on the League, master Contest coordination, research the mysteries of Pokemon and Arciel, and much, much more. Will you be a classic trainer? A criminal? A farmer? Choose your destiny on Legends Rising.
To participate in the Swarm, first post in this thread looking for a Pokemon. A mod will tag you and reply with stats for one Pokemon you find, including color and possibly even evolution depending on the species. Reply again encountering and trying to capture the Pokemon. Once you succeed, do not post in the thread again.
You may only find one per character, no rerolls. This is to prevent spamming to find special Pokemon. If for any IC reason you need to encounter another, use the same stats originally rolled and pretend it's a different individual.
Pokemon in Swarms have a 20% chance of being a special coloration!
Pokemon in swarms have a +20% capture rate with any ball, and will never flee.
This swarm closes at 11:59pm site time on November 6. After that, no new encounters will be spawned. However, anyone who has an ongoing encounter that isn't yet finished has until 11:59pm on the 20th of November to finish trying to catch their encounter. After that, the thread will be locked and archived.

Route 2... This was further north than Borzil had been before, honestly. But after having reached Cedar Town with that one racer, (Josh was his name, right? Things sometimes slipped from his mind pretty easily...) he felt more and more confident in straying further from home; and this was no different.
Things seemed not too different from Route 1, however, aside from the scattered buildings along the road; the place being quite in habited, for as much of a route through the wilderness as it may be. However, he had heard of a Mudbray swarm passing through here - something that caught his attention...
... as well as the attention of a certain filly, if Tulip's excited bray was anything to go by! Laughing, Borzil would pat the Mudbray's head as he walked along - Daisy and Ebon both following close behind. Who knew what they might find out here, today? (Ignore Ebon's level when rolling, please!)

Sunset was back again on route 2, because of the words of a Mudbray swarm that was seem in these area's. And Sunset was very interested in catching as many types of Pokemon as she could, so here she was again!
She was walking down the road with Eevee walking besides her. The Eevee strongly preffered to be outside of his Pokeball. Amd to be honest, Sunset liked having someone around.
Moving her attention to the road again, she spotted a few Mudbray. Sunset opened her bag to check if ahe still had Pokeball's - something she should have done before entering the road - but luckily she still had them. Now then. Who wanted to go with her?
The Team Lilligant, Level 10 Fennekin, Level 5 Eevee, Level 11 Rockruff, Level 10 Rolycoly, Level 6 Chansey, Level 12

It didn't take long for Borzil and co to find something - an impressively large herd of Mudbray and Mudsdale, gathered along the banks of a muddy looking river. Something that was perfect for the foals, who were braying and playing amongst themselves in the mud under the watchful gazes of the herd. "Well, ain't that one big family..." Borzil would muse with an impressed whistle; smiling a bit. A couple other trainers were admiring the scene as well - though Borzil was happy to see that they were keeping a safe distance away from the herd, watching from their perches on a bridge going across the river.
It was probably a good idea to keep one's distance; though Mudsdale were usually pretty calm pokemon, he couldn't imagine how the herd would react if they thought one of their foals were in danger from a battle.
Already though, Tulip was ecstatic; braying excitedly as she ran ahead towards the herd a short distance... Although, she'd soon pause to glance back at the others, almost expectantly. Daisy and Ebon would both gently moo - licking either side of the filly's face - and Borzil, too, couldn't help a gentle laugh as he stepped up to pet the young Mudbray. "Just be careful, alright? Come right back if the herd's getting agitated."
In response, Tulip brayed in acknowledgement; the young filly nodding as she trotted on off towards the other Mudbray playing along the river. It seemed that she was quite eager to find others like herself to play with! And it didn't take long for her to find a playmate, either; a sizeable Mudbray with unique-looking greyish colors approaching. Tulip, happy to make a friend, would go to bray at this older filly in greeting!
However... The wild Mudbray, in response, would nicker almost mischievously; kicking up some mud, to throw it right in Tulip's face! Tulip would bray and splutter in surprise, backing up a few steps and wiping her face off with her hoof. All the while, the wild Mudbray whinnied and brayed playfully; kicking up a little bit more mud as she bucked eagerly, before running off down the river just as Tulip could finally see again!
Oh, it was on.
Meanwhile, Borzil would watch with amusement as Tulip ran off after the larger filly; both Mudbray getting into a mudfight, kicking up and flinging mud at eachother like they were snowballs. Though the wild Mudbray seemed to have the advantage, being larger and older, Tulip's efforts were still plenty impressive - and they both seemed to be having plenty of fun all the while.
After some time of playing though, Borzil would see as Tulip - eventually - began to tire; though she was an adamant and tenacious little filly, the wild Mudbray was a match for her, it seemed. Covered in mud - even after a brief dip in the river - and panting, she would slowly wander back towards her family; Daisy lovingly nuzzling her, even though it'd smudge her fur with mud.
However, not far behind, would be that wild Mudbray as well - seemingly interested in Tulip's little family, Borzil included! Smiling, Borzil would crouch a little to meet the Mudbray's level, reaching out a hand to let her sniff it. "Hey there, buddy." He'd gently greet - his voice soft and friendly. "Did you have fun playing w--"
But before he could get much else out, the wild Mudbray would - quite playfully - fling some mud in his face as well, cutting him off. Borzil, however, couldn't be mad. He'd simply laugh and wipe his face off - a goofy grin on his face all the while. Looking at the mud collected on his hand though, he'd glance back at the mudbray, before chuckling and smearing it on the filly's side! Delighted that Borzil seemed to be playing along, the Mudbray brayed and bucked at the air in joy; prancing in a circle around the assembled group.
"You're just a playful cutiepie, aren't you?" Borzil would muse to the wild Mudbray, smiling warmly as he pulled out a pokeball, offering it to the group. "How would you say about coming with? Tulip seems to adore you, and I certainly enjoy seeing how well you two get along." Heal Ball go! (plus ranger bonus)
