Hello, and welcome to the Kimchi Region! This is a Pokémon role-play guild for anyone who wants to have fun with Pokémon. As a guild we are quite organized and have worked out a detailed system for RPing as both humans and Pokémon. Please take a moment to read the rest of the homepages you will find important information about the guild, as well as the password that is required for entry.

Please note that this is NOT a stat based guild. All battles will be fought with RP skill being the main determining factor. Weaknesses and resistances do apply, but again this guild is NOT stat based.

Disclaimer. This is simply a role playing guild based off of the Pokémon manga by Hidenori Kusaka and the games by Nintendo. Please support the official release.
