World Theme & Prism Life and Culture
This page is a collection of the various pieces of world theme of PMM and articles about life on Prism Island.
What is a Pokemorph?
There are many depictions of Pokemorphs these days. For the purposes of this MUSH, Pokemorphs are a part human, part Pokemon hybrid. Anthropomorphic Pokemon. They cannot devolve nor can these "parts" be separated, nor are they of two minds: A Pokemorph is a unique, singular entity with a singular mind and soul (possibly discounting 'morphs such as Exeggutor-Morphs). If that didn't make sense, picture, if you will, a werewolf. Not the fuzzy wolf-man of old B movies, but rather the popular modern depiction: the general upright, two-legged body of a man, but with the features of a wolf--long muzzle, sharp teeth, fur, tail, clawed paws, etc. Now, rather than a wolf, picture a Pokemon. A Pikachu-morph, for example, would have the general shape of a human, though covered in yellow fur, with stripes across its back, as well as a Pikachu's facial features, including red electric cheek-sacs, as well as long ears, a lightning-bolt shaped tail, and paw-like feet, among other features. However, unlike werewolves, Pokemorphs remain in the same body all the time, and, for the most part, aren't feral. Notably, some Pokemorphs have human-like hair, most commonly on mammalian Pokemorphs, but occasionally on reptilian 'morphs, as well. Pokemorphs are much more resilient and powerful than humans, while infinitely more versatile than the Pokemon that they once were. Team Rocket trained all Pokemorphs in various combat techniques and styles, and most Pokemorphs were trained in additional abilities, such as reconnaissance, espionage, hacking, demolitions, etc.
