..... 160 years before the events of Pokémon as we know the today, the regions were caught in the web of ever rising conflict...
Rival nations, Johto and Kanto, have been competing for centuries. At times the tensions have risen to the waging of wars between them. Bad economics, unscrupulous trade, spreading disease, and idea theft has been enough to spark high tensions between these two.
Recently, an unknown Pokémon (Mew) has disabled all the automated weaponry on both sides. (However machines are still usable, such as cars.) Being stranded without weapons, both countries have seen a lull in war. It has been 30 years since the last all-out war, but there is still enough mistrust within living generations to spark the fire. Moreover, the independent actions of occasional guerrilla fighter skirmishes keep tensions high.
In fear of their neighbouring country, Johto sought out a new form of protection: Pokémon.
Up until now, people lived in fear of Pokémon. They were treated like monsters. But since the invention of the Pokéball from Johto, Pokémon can now be tamed. With this they now have a new method to fight. And each side is willing to toss aside old fears to continue the battle.
Although armies were being trained, neither side was willing to make the first move. This changed when an anonymous attack was shot out. This was all that was needed to spark the enemy country's distrust, and thus they were plunged back into a new age of war.
It it now your duty to choose to fight for Kanto or Johto, and build up your pokémon army. Choose a side and your faction (navy, air force or army) and prepare for the war of the century.
...... In short: End Run a strategy based OCT, where you will be given a set of tasks to fulfill. It won't be the traditional '1 on 1' that pokémon has yielded prior (unless part of your strategy or criteria is to have a 1 on 1 battle.) It is heavily plot based, building on what contestants do in their rounds. .....
