+Current News- March 11, 2014
Hello everyone~ We would like to formally apologize for the lack of overall activity in the group as of late. Over the course of events since Capture Hearts's opening, we feel that there have been significant holes in the administrative handlings and rules of this group. As a result, we will be handing over the group to someone who we believe we can trust to take care of it and help it evolve. While this may seem sudden, we decided that this would be more appropriate than completely shutting down the group.
To anyone interested, you need to have shown or show that you have extensive knowledge of the Kingdom Hearts series. Additionally, you must have shown yourself to be well rounded and that you can get along with other members of DA. Finally, you must have shown, through previous activity, that you will you would be active enough to keep up with the group. We are imposing these criteria because and we don't want people to get their hopes up, just for the group to suddenly end or for the story to take some impossible change in direction that has nothing to do with Kingdom Hearts, Pokemon, or Disney.
The artist of the current application and heartless does not have a problem with letting the new owners use the art, or providing some other designs for new potential enemies. Current information or plot ideas can be leaked to new mods. Once again, we are very sorry and hope you all continue to enjoy your time on DA and in the group should you decide to stay. Thank you for your time.

Hello again, everyone. We apologize for the tardiness of this, but this is a reminder that revamped applications are due by the end of the day. If there are highly hindering circumstances preventing you from doing this, please send the group a note. Remember, we only require changing out the application background. News regarding the next opening will come within the next couple of weeks.
+Current News -January 10, 2014+
Attention everyone, Capture hearts is reopening soon. We apologize for taking so long to come back. Real life has been a bit rough lately but we have persisted.
Due to the introductIon of new pokemon in generation 6, we are allowing you all to make new oc’s if you so wish. You are free to make a new character without cost, be they one of the new Kalos pokemon or a pokemon from generations past. We will still follow under the policy that there will be only three of each species with one for each class. We will be allowing you to reserve the pokemon but do be quick. If you wish to change characters, please send a note to the group not the the individual mods. Furthermore, with a new generation comes new attacks and learnsets. If you wish to update your character's attacks accordingly, please send a note to the group, letting us know that you will be doing this.We will not allow Mega evolutions for characters.
Not all pokemon are capable of this and their strength is too great. We would prefer to have equality for all members in the way of character capabilities.
Now as for updates, we have made the following changes and additions:
A shiny new app for you all as it is a new year. This does NOT mean you will be allowed to main a shiny pokemon.
New NPC and Pet move policy; NPCs and Pets are no longer restricted to status only moves. However, they will still be restricted to having only two attacks.
New information standards. We have raised the standards by which we will evaluate information on applications. Information on applications should:
Show apparent understanding or research of Kingdom Hearts canon. History must make sense in relation to the Kingdom Hearts canon. If you are not sure if your history is acceptable, please let us know through notes to the group.
If it is apparent that you have not researched Kingdom Hearts canon and have ignored our journals, we will reject your application
Make sense with regards to pokemon base stats. Please do not have characters taking down other characters based in much stronger pokemon with ease.
Class changes. We will be changing the Attack and Defense classes to Speed and Strength, respectively. We are changing these labels in hopes of balancing the numbers in each class as based on the demographics of our first opening. The Speed class will be focused on hitting the enemy with barrages of light, swift attacks. The Strength class will be focused on dealing powerful attacks either by direct attacks or retaliation.
With character creation starting again and new standards, we would like to strongly
encourage you all to please
review our character creation journal and take the information to greater heart. We would also like to warn you to stay away from overused plot elements (e.g.: dead parents/family, overly tragic history).Revamped apps should be completed by January 31
If you still require more time by this due date, please let us know through a note to the group with an idea of how much more time you will need.
To those wishing to join us, expect an opening around the beginning of February.

Hello everyone~ we would like to formally apologize for the lack of activity in the overall group lately. Over the course of events since our opening, we feel that there have been significant holes in our current administrative handlings and in the rules of this group. We have found it very demotivating and, as a result, we will be looking to be on hiatus until at least the release of X and Y to not only make these fixes, but also to account for the new Kalos Region pokemon.
We would also like to note that part of the time will be spent planning out more events as well implementing other changes and updating journals as we deem necessary. We may also be enlisting new mods during this time. Please be on the lookout for these changes as well any new additions we make to the group.
Furthermore, during this time, we highly recommend that you please send in suggestions for what you would like to see out of this group through the group's notes.
We would like further input regarding where we are lacking.

Hello again, everyone~ As you may have noticed these past couple of months, we've added several important items such as the remainder of the rules and additional questions to the FAQs as well as some other things, such as entries into the enemies and the addition of our mascot! We appreciate your patience and ask that you bear with us a bit longer as we finish up preparations for future events. In the meantime, note that we have changed our applications.
Please note that these updated applications are the templates of what we will accept into the group.
On a more serious note, it has been apparent that some people have not been reading the information held in the journals. We would like to gently remind you all to look over all entries before asking any questions. We would also like to emphasize here that we are NOT interested in enlisting more help for our mod team at this time. There will be notification regarding this IF we find that we need help.
Finally, we would like to announce that we will begin reservations for former members sometime in the next couple of weeks and will also put up notification regarding this. Acceptance of new members will be the week following that.
Thank you all for your interest and stay tuned!
+ CURRENT NEWS ~ Feb 5, 2013 +
Hello everyone. We're very happy to see that over the past few days, many of you former members of the now inactive, closed down Pocket-Hearts
have been coming to visit this group and watch us develop and unfold from the ground up! It's very exciting, with a bit of hard work thrown in. But we're certainly not worried about that. We will manage! After all, we would like to open our doors as soon as everything is finalized, complete, and set in place. No use rushing all that work only to have it incomplete and crumbling, right?
As you all can see, our little team is slowly growing. We have decided that with a group of a few good mods, it is less likely for one of us to make a rational decision if something were to pop up and try to bring us down. We can only promise to work hard and do our best for the group and you possible former/future members. We are very busy working on retrieving data (if possible), setting up important information, and so forth. We hope you're all looking forward to the new group as much as we are though!
For now we ask that you sit back, relax, and let us go about what needs to be done for now. We have our 2 group chatrooms made, which you can visit via the group page links in the custom box fi you wish to hang out with former and possibly future members. We also have started a Points Donations Pool
's page! While we understand that many groups are great without the super group status, we want to make this group the best it can be for it's members! Every little point counts, so if you could spare a single one, or a few, we would truly appreciate it!
We hope to update you all with more good news soon! Thanks for reading and sticking around!
