Falling Star Academy - Main Building

Board Threads Posts Last Post
No New Posts Pokemon Lab

A lab set up in the main building, which is where the headmistress spends most of her time when she isn't out training or buried in paperwork. For the most part, she spends her time here studying and researching ways to develop the island. These labs are also set up with a machine capable of restoring fossils.

No New Posts Headmistress' Office

This is where the headmistress of the school can usually be found when she isn't in the lab. The office is incredibly large, allowing multiple people to enter at once. Whenever the headmaster calls a staff meeting, chances are this is where it will be held.

Also worth noting is that the office itself is filled with anime/video game merchandise. Why? Why not?

No New Posts Staff Housing

Next to the Lab is a row of small houses, where the teachers and staff of the academy live. Each house, though identical on the outside, is custom built to suit each everyone's needs. Unless personally invited or seeking a specific staff member, students are not allowed to hang out in this area. [/blockquote]

No New Posts Infirmary

Whether you were injured while out exploring or simply came down with a really nasty cold, this room is where students can rest and/or receive treatment whenever they need it. Usually, a nurse or two is all that's needed to keep the place running, but there is also a doctor that can be called in for more serious cases.

No New Posts Air Dorm

One of the six dorms. If you like mountain climbing and vast open fields with wind blowing through them, then this is the dorm for you. The entire dorm has something of a mountain motif, and even sits at the foot of a rather impressive mountain range.

No New Posts Celosia Mountain

A huge mountain that sits as the largest location on the island. There is a man-made path that allows for one to easily ascend the mountain, but more adventurous trainers are more than welcome to climb it the hard way. Either way, quite a few Pokemon make their home here, so one will have to be careful regardless of how they choose to explore it.

A deep cave within the mountains that has a strong magnetic resonance, which makes it somewhat difficult to move around if you're not used to it. Not surprisingly, a lot of Electric and Steel Pokemon can be found here.

No New Posts Solidago Field

A vast open field that takes up almost as much of the northern area as the mountains do. There's a lot of grass and a few trees scattered about...and that's about it. It's home to a lot common rodent and bird-like Pokemon, making it a great place for a beginner to catch their first couple Pokemon. Because of this, many travelers have compared it to Kanto's Route 1 or Sinnoh's Route 201.

A perfect place to sit back and relax, this expansive beach is quite a beautiful sight to behold. Not only is the water great for swimming in, but there's plenty of space for those who prefer lounging. For unknown reasons, it's sunny all year round, to the point that battles on the beach are always treated as though Sunny Day is in effect.

No New Posts Palisade Lake

This was once a large, beautiful lake with an abundance of fresh, clean water. However, due to an over-abundance of Ice-types living here, both the lake and the immediate area surrounding it have been completely frozen over. Overall, the area has a beautiful yet isolated appearance. Due to the influence of the many Ice-types living here, this area is constantly treated as though it's under the effects of Hail.

No New Posts Boronia Quagmire

This vast wetland is an absolute nightmare for those who don't want their clothes to get wet and/or dirty. While there aren't many varieties Pokemon here as there are in other places, it's become a popular spot for fans of Poison-types. For those who don't feel up to wading through all of the muck, a large stone path has built, allowing for easy travel through the area. This area is treated as though it's under the effects of Rain Dance.

One of the six Dorms. Sits at the edge of the desert and has an overall flame motif. The dorm itself is air-conditioned very well, so there's no need to worry about it getting too hot, in spite of the outside environment.

No New Posts Amarylis Desert

A vast desert that spans a good chunk of the Northeastern Area. Even during the day, the desert doesn't get as dangerously hot as one might expect. As long as someone is careful, it's usually safe to cross; if nothing else, having a Water or Ice-type Pokemon hand tends to be pretty helpful in keeping cool. This location is often treated as though it's under the effects of the move Sandstorm.

No New Posts Mt. Pitt

A large inactive volcano. While nowhere near as massive as the Celosia Mountains, this is still a pretty huge place. While scaling the mountain itself is easier said than done due to how extremely hot the surface can get, there are many caves and tunnels near the base that allow one to explore the interior of the volcano while remaining relatively safe..so long as they don't go too far in.

No New Posts Hyacinth Forest

Surrounding the dorm, this deep forest is often nicknamed "The Mystical Forest" by those who live near it, due to the large presence of Fairy-type Pokemon living inside it. Most notably, a thick mist permeates throughout the entire area; while it's not difficult to see through, it does give the whole place a fairy tale-like feeling, lending to its nickname. As a result of this mist, this area is constantly treated as though it's under the effects of Misty Terrain

A large lake that sits near the edge of the forest, connected to a series of rivers that run throughout the island. The water is very fresh and clean, making it great for stopping to get a drink or wash yourself off.

It doesn't happen often, but, once in a while, there's an accident that takes the life of someone on the island. They are laid to rest here. The graves are well maintained, and there are surprisingly very few ghosts or Ghost Pokemon wandering the area, much to the surprise of many. That said, a variety of wild Pokemon of other types are known to wander through every now and then.

No New Posts Void Dorm

One of the five dorms. It sits near some ruins and, overall, as something of a supernatural motif to it. Superstitious students are advised against choosing this dorm. Lovers of the occult, on the other hand, will feel right at home.

No New Posts Alpina Ruins

The ruins of a massive temple, which seems to be at least twenty times bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Though the ruins themselves aren't dangerous, it's easy to get lost. Therefore, please exercise caution when exploring them. There is also an eerie supernatural feeling that permeates the entire area; as a result, the area is always under the effects of Psychic Terrain

No New Posts Rose Mansion

No one, not even the Headmistress herself, is entirely sure where this large mansion came from or who lived in it. All anyone knows is that it was already there when the land was purchased, and it's most definitely haunted. Attempts were made to have the mansion torn down, all of which were thwarted by the mischievous spirits who live inside. As such, it remains standing where it was found, shrouded in mystery.

No New Posts Watsonia Fields

Initially, this area doesn't seem a whole lot different from the Solidago Fields. However, the deeper in you go, the more noticeable the difference. Namely, the grass is a bit thicker, and the area is incredibly craggy, with rocks protruding from the ground in pretty much every direction. These rugged fields are full of energetic Pokemon who love to run, jump and climb around.

Luckily, the academy will loan a fishing rod to anyone who wants to come here, free of charge. So feel free to fish to your heart's content.

This area, making up a large portion of the southwest area, seems to be locked in constant thunderstorms. There are multiple huge towers erected that act as lightning rods to prevent any lightning from striking the ground, so, as long as you don't do something incredibly stupid like try to climb said towers, there's no need to worry about getting struck by lightning. Unsurprisingly, a lot of Electric-types can be found here. Due to the presence of the lightning towers, the air around here seems to constantly be electrically-charged; as a result, it is always treated as though it's under the effects of Electric Terrain.

No New Posts Snapdragon Caverns

Deep caverns that sits inside of a large cliff-side. Nicknamed the "Dragons Den", it lives up to this name due to an abundance of Dragon-type (or otherwise dragon-like) Pokemon living inside.

However, the cliff is incredibly steep, and attempting to climb it be dangerous for a Pokemon who hasn't been specifically trained for it. As such, in order access this area, a student must obtain a Druddigon Pass.

No New Posts Moon Lily Temple

Sitting on a small plot of land somewhat far off the coast of the island, this massive temple was once used to worship some sort of deity; some also suspect it may have been a legendary Pokemon. Either way, no one's been able to find anything concrete.

A mysterious vortex of psychic energy makes it impossible to approach from the air. As such, it must be approached from the sea. However, due to strong currents and its distance from the island itself, even beginning to approach the temple requires intense training. As such, a student must obtain a Sharpedo Pass if they wish to make their way to this temple.

No New Posts Celosia Peaks

The summit of the Celosia Mountains, which is surprisingly vast. A lot of Pokemon make their home in this high-up place, and, shockingly enough, it's not just Flying-types up here.

That said, the peaks are too high up to be reached by climbing, making it necessary to fly up. However, due to strong air currents that require very specific training to navigate, any students wanting to come up here must obtain a Corviknight Pass.
