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?
Simply put: an anthropomorphic, humanified Pokémon. For the purposes of this MUSH, Pokemorphs are a hybrid of Pokémon and human. They cannot devolve, nor can these two “parts” be separated, nor are they of two minds: A Pokemorph is a unique, singular entity.
The manifestations of such hybrids can vary wildly, even among the same species! The majority of Pokemorphs will resemble a humanoid, bipedal base form with features of their Pokémon side. We at Pokemorph MUSH believe in allowing for player creativity and flexibility, within reason, while designing a Pokemorph character! For example, a Seviper-Morph may have legs, or may have only one pair of limbs. A Pikipek-Morph may have arms, legs and wings (six limbs total); or he may have wing-arms with hands and legs (four limbs total); or he may be more human and lack flight feathers entirely and simply have feathered, human-like arms.
