Full Name:
Johnny Tran

Age (16+):
17

Gender:
Male (Gay male…)

Hometown:
Mistralton City

Appearance:
Johnny stands at five foot six and has a lean build. His arms are long, but they are skinny. He’s tan from all the traveling he has done. His teeth are straight from the years he spent with braces and retainers. He has black hair and narrow brown eyes. He wears a black button up sweater vest over a long sleeve white shirt. A checkered scarf is wrapped around his neck and on his shoulder there is a messenger bag. He wears dark jeans and sneakers and he wears thick rimmed glasses. He wears a cap on his head, something that has a special place in his heart.

Personality:
Johnny is a bookworm and a bibliophile. He loves books. He carries as many books as he can (four to five at a time.) and devours them all in a couple of days. He always treats the books he has with care and detests people who mistreat them. Out of all the books he has read, he loves fantasy. He loves that fantasy stories are the easiest for him to escape too and he loves that fantasy is always set in a new world with new laws and principles.

Johnny values knowledge. He’s an intellectual. He will always try to think problems through logically. He highly value education and was on his path to college, but now is a bit side tracked because of a certain incident. (Will be flushed out in the bio.) Johnny loves learning about new things and he absorbs knowledge like a sponge. He usually writes things down on a notepad when he has learned something new, even if some of the things don’t even make too much sense.

He doesn’t fool around much. He detests alcohol and drugs as they have taken lives of many people in his family. He has a strong sense of justice and will rarely lie to people. With his strong sense of justice he wants to be of some use to the police department, so he dreams to be a forensic scientist; however, that seems less likely to happen any time soon.

Johnny is easily irritated. The smallest thing someone does can potentially drive him up the wall. When he is irritated he tends to rant, vent, and scream. He is irritated by people who pretend to know what they are talking about when it’s obvious they do not. He also gets irritated to people who don’t support the rights of the lgbt community and is likely not talk to those who aren’t supporters. Many things detest him, but over religious people who shove their beliefs on to others annoy him the most.

Biography:
Johnny was born in Unova. His parents being business workers, they moved around a lot. When he was thirteen he moved to the Kanto region. He is the younger of two children. His older brother was always and is still a trouble maker, while Johnny, in a way was their parents pride and joy. They had hoped that Johnny would be a business worker just like they are and they haven’t accepted his decision to be a forensic scientist as of yet.

As he was growing up, Johnny always loved school, unlike his brother who always wanted to go outside and play. He wasn’t really that active and enjoyed reading. Even when his brother went on a short pokemon journey, Johnny’s routine didn’t change. He got good grades in school and his dream to be a forensic scientist was getting closer as each year passed by until one night.

His brother managed to convince Johnny to go to a party with him. (He used the fact that the guy he liked would be there.) Johnny was very bored at the party, since he didn’t fit with any of the cliques that were there and spent the major part of the night drinking punch and just staring at his crush. What he didn’t know was that the punch was spiked with alcohol and soon the rest of the night became a blur. The next morning he woke up next to a girl he didn’t even know in a very awkward position. (He still shudders to this day on how he managed to get into that kind of position with a girl.) He left quickly and soon after he left he found out that he somehow got the girl pregnant.

Everything seemed to blow up from there. He found out, his brother found out, and the girl’s and his family found out about it. His parents, the girl, and her family attempted to convince Johnny to give up the child for adoption. He wouldn’t budge as he wanted to keep the child and when his parents finally gave into the idea of keeping the child they offered to financially support the child until Johnny got out of college. He appreciated the sentiment, but he wanted to help financially support his child too, so he took upon himself to beat the eight gyms of Kanto (and if possible participate in the Indigo Plateau Tournament.) in nine months because obtaining the gym badges would not only provide a full ride scholarship for school, but he would be able to accumulate enough money to support his child even with or without the help of his parents for a couple of years.

At the end of five months he managed to obtain six badges. He was surprised that he managed to defeat Koga as throughout most of the battle, he was getting his butt kicked. After facing Koga, he quickly moved on to Cinnabar Island where he was flattened by Blaine. Blaine had advised him to train more and no matter how much Johnny wanted to say that he didn’t have time for that, but found it wise to keep his mouth shut. When he heard about the S.S. Anne he quickly got his free tickets with plans to train as much as he could so he could finish his nine month run of the Kanto gym circuit.

Pokemon:

Species:


Nickname:
Lucy

Level:
37

Gender:
Female

Ability:
Flash Fire

Moveset:
Flame Burst, Energy Ball, Hex, and Confuse Ray

Personality:
Unlike her name, Lucy likes staying in dark places. She finds her purple flame very amusing and pretty to look at. She also loves scaring pokemon with scary stories and exaggerations of her adventures with Johnny. Besides her love of horror and the dark, she also is addicted to lollipops. She collects all the wrappers, (she makes Johnny keep them for her), and enjoys looking at them and all of the many colorful words and little picture on them.

Even if Lucy does enjoy scaring people, she cares very much to those whom are close to her. As she was Johnny’s childhood companion since he was a child, they are very close. Lucy enjoys the idea of her trainer having a child to take care of as she finds this a chance to corrupt him/her to a horror fanatic. (However it is a mystery to her how she will do so.)

Bio:
Lucy was given to Johnny by his parents who had caught her along the way home from work. They had caught her and decided that she would become friends with their eldest son at first; however; he didn’t seem to care about Lucy at all and wanted an Axew instead, so she was then handed down Johnny. Johnny was the one who named her when she was given to him. As a child, Johnny would always read her stories and even from that age, Lucy seemed more interested in horror than the fantasy stories Johnny read. Lucy didn’t really care if her trainer went on a journey or not as she was content with whatever he chose to do. She was happy with the way her life was and if Johnny didn’t want to go on a pokemon journey then she would be fine with it, so when Johnny decided not to go, she wasn’t down at all.

As a pokemon she can hold her own battles fairly well with her move pool, but this didn’t stop her from getting flattened by Blaine, even if she did have the Flash Fire ability. Because of her defeat in the hands of Blaine, she more than ever wants to evolve into a Chandelure.

Species:


Nickname:
Twitch

Level:
34

Gender:
Male

Ability:
Chlorophyll

Moveset:
Sunny Day, Vine Whip, Petal Dance, and Sleep Powder

Personality:
Twitch loves to tinker with electronics. He likes taking things and just breaking them apart. He enjoys inventing new things too and his eyes just light up when he spots something he has never taken apart before. When he takes something, he won’t give it back until he is done with it and this causes a lot of trouble for Johnny, but he doesn’t seem to care. The only thing Twitch enjoys fiddling with over and over again, would be Johnny’s poke’dex. It was a bonus that Johnny didn’t mind him fiddling with it. Most of the time Twitch has it and whenever Johnny needs information from it, he just calls Twitch.

Twitch likes talking to people and pokemon too, even if people don’t seem to understand him. He enjoys chatting with them and just enjoys having a good time as well. A guilty pleasure he has is watching really bad romantic comedy movies and chick flicks. For some reason, they just interest him and the only one willing to watch them with him is Johnny.

Bio:
Twitch was a pokemon that was originally for the new trainers. One day, Johnny had arrived to receive his poke’dex and for some reason Twitch had taken a liking towards Johnny after Johnny attempted to hold a conversation with him. Prof. Oak being the observant old man he was, quickly noticed how taken Twitch was with Johnny and just gave Johnny Twitch as a gift. Just really confused, Johnny accepted him, wondering why he would be given a Bulbasaur as a gift. Twitch hasn’t regretted tagging along with Johnny even once. Being with Johnny he discovered his love for tinkering with things and even developed a guilty pleasure for bad romantic comedies and chick flicks.

Twitch gained his guilty pleasure while recovering injuries in the pokemon center. Nurse Joy often watched soap operas, romantic comedies, and chick flicks on her breaks and when her shift was seemingly done. Twitch was curious by the moving pictures and began to watch as well. It didn’t take long before Twitch became highly addicted to them and Nurse Joy enjoyed the company the grass pokemon gave especially when she knew she could go on and on about the movie, soap opera, or t.v. episode and Twitch would actually care. Nurse Joy was very close to asking Johnny if she could keep Twitch, but managed to stop herself from doing so.

Species:


Nickname:
Jamie

Level:
34

Gender:
Male

Ability:
Tangled Feet

Moveset:
Quick Attack, Hidden Power Ice, Gust, and Twister

Personality:
Jamie enjoys venturing on the internet. Even if he can’t use the computer by himself and relies on Johnny to navigate for him, he enjoys surfing through the internet. His two most visited sites are youtube and fanfiction.net. Jamie wants to play computer games too, but since he lacks any appendage that would allow him to use the computer all by himself, he can’t. He gets very irritated, if he doesn’t get at least a half hour of internet usage. Even if he gets very irritated, he is still very useable in battle, even if he is more likely to care about insults.

Besides being an internet addict, he is a very happy fellow and very friendly. It’s rare to see him ever be depressed and when someone is sad he will try everything he can to make them happy, even if his methods are inconsiderate a lot of the times. He doesn’t know when to leave someone alone and is prone to get blown up at; however, even if someone blows up on him, he doesn’t really seem to care.

Bio:
Jamie was the first pokemon Johnny ever caught on his own. Johnny does feel a bit bad for capturing him the way he did. (He was feeding and Johnny decided it was a perfect time to attack.) Jamie, at first, wasn’t a great battler and was mostly used for scouting. Jamie didn’t like this very much and strived to prove that he as powerful enough and he got his chance when Johnny was battling Misty. At the end of the battle, Jamie evolved and at that point, Johnny saw some battling potential in him. Through his experience with Jamie, Johnny has learned never to underestimate a pokemon and its possible battling potential.

Johnny doesn’t know this, but Jamie’s addiction to the internet began in a pokemon center. Johnny had decided to take a rest stop and let all of his pokemon out. Jamie was curious and began to wander until he found many people on the computer. He was very curious and began watching people go on and off, and the eventually he managed to rope Jamie into showing him firsthand what the internet was. Since then, he has been forever hooked.
