Sweet! I'll get it done before I go to bed tonight!
His parents were surprisingly supportive, and later, once Jack had begun wandering, they even sent him a ponyta from the farm to help him along. Jack began to take the Kanto gym challenge, though it was certainly not the marvelous adventure that he thought it would be. Jack didn't like seeing his pokemon get hurt, and though he had a gift for working with a pokemon's physiology and teaching them moves, he didn't take to pokemon battles very much. Still, he persevered on, because he still found value in bonding with his pokemon. However, he eventually found out about the contest system outside of Kanto. He immediately became infatuated with the idea of contests, and the moment his pokemon could fly and surf, set out to traverse the regions to make it to the contest scene.
Jack took the contest scene by storm, quickly earning a reputation for his pokemon's advanced and precise moves. He had a talent for training pokemon and it led him to much greater success in contests than in battling where his tactics were lacking. Jack spent a good two years in the contest battling scene, and actually managed to become a professional coordinater, making enough money off it to keep going. He's known mostly for his clean and simple style that highlights a pokemon's natural abilities and talents rather than focusing on flashy artificial routines. All was going well until one day Jack received a call from his parents.
Jack's home and parent's farm had fallen into bankrupcy over the four years Jack was away. While Jack made enough money to support himself and send a little bit home, he was not yet famous enough to make anywhere near enough money to save the farm. He needed a lot of money fast. When he heard of the monetary prize he could choose for the Ultima cup, he knew that was the only way he had a chance. Jack flew back to Kanto, finishing up his last three badges without too much difficulty after the intense training his team had from their contest days. After that, he set his eyes on the Ultima Cup
Current Team as of entry:
Chaga the Paras
Male| Effect Spore
Moves: Aromatherapy, X-scizor, Giga Drain, Spore
Chaga was Jack's first pokemon, and despite its unevolved state, is his strongest and very high leveled. Chaga is curious and intelligent, but tends to over-think things and worry more than his master. He works to be very precise in everything.
Skip the Rapidash
Female | Flash Fire
Moves: Fireblast, Bounce, Agility, stomp
Skip is very much a skittish horse. She startles easily, and is constantly weary and on edge, ready to bolt at any moment. Her high energy gives her great speed and grace. She adores Jack however, and if she's alone with him is very affectionate.
Joker the Dodrio
Male | Run Away
Moves: Fly, Drill peck, Endeavor, Tri attack
Grumpy bird with anger issues. Vocalizes a lot of chirps and screeches to let his anger known. Squabbles with himself constantly.
Daffodil the Golduck
Female | Cloud Nine
Moves: Surf, Confusion, Disable, Screech
Daffodil thinks she's smarter than she is, which admittedly, is pretty smart, but not worthy of the incredibly snobby attitude she has. A perfectionist and fierce battler, she's not the kind of pokemon you want to get on the bad side of. She disapproves of cheerfulness and frivolousness, finding it sloppy and idiotic. She has a strong sense of honor.
Spot the Spinda
Female | Own Tempo
Moves: Hypnosis, Dizzy Punch, Sucker Punch, Teeter Dance
Completely unpredictable. She's generally bouncy and cheerful, but has been known to have extreme mood swings for no apparent reason.
