@VillageOfDragons: Looking good! I have just one question before you get started though. If your character has a disability that causes him to hesitate for very long moments before speaking...

How does he order his pokemon in a battle? o_O

Well I was kind of playing along with it to see how that would work and I figured he is bonded so well with his first 3 Pokemon that the reason his nickname is "The Mind Quad" is because his Pokemon and him can read each other minds so they know which moves to use automatically. However, if this needs to be changed where he actually actively gives commands to his Pokemon, then I can edit it for you.

Can I join? Or are we too late in the RP?

Name (First, Middle-optional and Last): Jojo Liza Oliver

Nickname (Optional):

Age (10-15): 12

Sex (Male or Female): Female

Dorm (Raikou Dorm, Entei Dorm or Suicune Dorm): Suicune

Appearance (A picture can be provided instead of a description if you so wish): She nas long, caramel hair that is straight most of the way before curling inward at the bottom. She has brown eyes, and wears a purple tee, jeans, and red tennis shoes.

Personality (How does your character act and react to others? Their mental state? Flaws and/or personal weaknesses?): She is a kind-hearted girl who is almost annoyingly optimistic. It takes a LOT to get her mad, but if she is, you're gonna want to evacuate the area. She is outgoing, and will talk to anyone she meets. If she wants to be alone, something is UP. She is quite naive due to her trusting nature, however.

History (Where did your character grow up? Who did they grow up with? What have the been doing before this? Any noteworthy events? What brought them to the academy?): I'm sorry, but these are NOT my strong point. Is it okay if I skip this?

Pokémon (Maximum of 3. No legendaries, 'shiny' or stage 3 pokémon. Oddly colored but not specifically 'shiny' pokemon are allowed, however.):
Species: Porygon
Nickname(Optional):
Personality (Can be as short or long as you want, but cannot be excessively vague): Do Porygons even HAVE personalities? They ARE artificial, after all.
Lvl(Max 30): 15
Moves(Maximum of 6. TMs and egg moves are allowed): Tri-Attack, Thunderbolt, Conversion, Thunder Wave

@VillageOfDragons: Hmm... I apologize for the delay. I had to seriously consider whether to ask you for more information, specifically how your character got so close to their pokemon. That's a pretty intense bond they have going on and I was a little puzzled as the history doesn't appear to explain something that would be considered extremely exceptional.

However! Ultimately I decided that, because you had given an opening post that was more than satisfactory and because this power is within the spirit of Pokemon, I would trust your judgement and accept you without asking for explanation.

Welcome aboard!

@NumberOnett: Unfortunately, I am afraid that I cannot excuse outright not having a history written. I ask for these things because I want to better know your character and you as an RPer. There is one thing you can do to ease up the restrictions however, and that's to write an opening post as part of your application.

What I would recommend is talking about how your character grew up, what events made them who they are, their relationship with their parents, how they got their first pokemon, their relationship with their pokemon, their home town, their friends. Stuff like that.

Okay, thanks for accepting me! I'll be quoting my opening post and placing it in the IC thread soon

Thing is, whenever I write a backstory, it sounds rather unimaginative and forced.

It's been ages since I roleplayed, and I've never done so on these forums. I hope you let me join. Here is the form:

Name: Amanda Lynn Grayson

Nickname: Mandy

Age: 12

Sex: Female

Dorm : Suicune

Appearance: http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/angel_beats.jpg What doesn’t show in the picture: Height - 4’ 0”, (short for her age). She has a small strawberry birthmark on the right side of her neck in the shape of a heart.

Personality (How does your character act and react to others? Their mental state? Flaws and/or personal weaknesses?): Though Mandy isn’t shy, she tends to be quiet and watchful. When she sees someone being picked on, she will step in to help. Even though she is small for her age, she doesn’t let anyone intimidate her. She’s not overly friendly, but is kindhearted. Because of her size, she has an affinity for tiny pokemon, though she loves them all, big or small. She loves to read, especially about anything related to pokemon, and science fiction is her favorite kind of novel. She is self-conscious about the birthmark on her neck (see appearance) and tends to wear her collar up to hide it (though it doesn’t work to well except when she wears a turtleneck in the winter). Even though she’s not intimidated by people in general, she is always worried grown ups won’t take her seriously because she’s so little... in the past she's experienced adults thinking she was much younger than she was because of her size and treating her accordingly.

History (Where did your character grow up? Who did they grow up with? What have the been doing before this? Any noteworthy events? What brought them to the academy?): She was born and raised in Fortree City of the Hoenn Region. Her mother is a Pokemon Ranger, and her dad is a skilled carpenter who makes furniture for the desk and chair shop in town. Her older brother, Randy (18), whom she looks up to, severely broke his leg shortly after going off on his pokemon journey, and still limps rather badly (she may tell the story of what happened to her brother in conversing with other player characters). Since he couldn’t continue on his journey, Randy gave his starter pokémon, a mudkip, to her on her third birthday. She named the mudkip Fen, and has deeply bonded to it.

When she was six, a trainer came by on the way to challenge the gym in town. The boy was a bully who pushed her around when she accidentally got in his way and even sent out one of his pokemon to attack her. Fen evolved into Marshtomp in the middle of defending her. Three years later, that trainer came back and apologized to her for his poor behavior, and gave her an egg. It hatched into a Seedot with the egg moves, Razor Wind and Foul Play. She named it Bob, after the trainer.

She has often gone fishing with her brother, and one day caught a female Feebas. In spite of its ugliness, she named it Jewel, because she saw beauty within her eyes. Mandy fed Jewel pokeblocks made of its favorite berries, which tended to be dry, and it soon surprised the youth by evolving into Milotic.

She applied to the Pokemon Academy because she wanted to maximize her potential as a trainer, and was also nervous about going out on her own because of what happened to her brother. Before she left home, her father gave her TM26 (earthquake) to teach to Fen, TM13 (ice beam) to teach to Jewel, and TM53 (energy ball) to teach to Bob.

Pokémon (Maximum of 3. No legendaries, 'shiny' or stage 3 pokémon. Oddly colored but not specifically 'shiny' pokemon are allowed, however.):
Species: Marshtomp
Nickname(Optional): Fen
Personality (Can be as short or long as you want, but cannot be excessively vague): Fen is confident of his powers, and can be a bit stuck up towards other pokemon, except for Jewel, whom he fancies and tends to act foolishly around her (read Brock whenever he sees a pretty woman). He likes to sample whatever Mandy is eating, but hates ketchup. He’s fiercely loyal and protective of Mandy.
Lvl(Max 30): 28
Moves(Maximum of 6. TMs and egg moves are allowed): Water Gun, Foresight, Mud Shot, Bide, Earthquake

Species: Milotic
Nickname: Jewel
Personality: Like Mandy, she’s quiet. She is often amused at Fen’s shenanigans, and secretly admires him.
Level: 22
Moves: Water Gun, Disarming Voice, Twister, Water Pulse, Aqua Ring, Ice Beam

Species: Seedot
Nickname: Bob
Personality: Hyper, likes to dance about. He doesn’t like being in the Pokeball, and will only submit to going in there when tired.
Level: 10
Moves: Razor Wind, Foul Play, Growth, Bide, Harden, Energy Ball

Opening Post (Must be from the perspective of your character.):

Mandy slowly walked up the steps to the Academy, her stomach churning in nervous anticipation. She knew it was going to be a challenge starting in mid-term, but she wasn't too worried about the curriculum... she was more worried how she would fit into with her peers. When she stopped to look around at the quiet campus, something bumped into the back of her leg. Without even looking back, she sighed and pulled out an empty pokeball. “Bob, please go inside!”

“Dot dot, Seedot,” it asserted as it shook its head adamantly.

“You’re going to get us in trouble. I’m sure they won’t like trainers’ pokemon just wandering around loose!” Fretfully, Mandy looked around to see if anyone was around to notice. The sun had not even risen yet, and she knew she was early. She was supposed to report to the main office at 7:00am to find out what her class schedule and get her settled in the dorm. Returning the ball to her backpack with a moan, she took out the envelope that held the acceptance letter from Professor Oak and the card that said when and where she was to go. She turned the card towards the light from the lamppost and checked for what must have been the thousandth time the details.

Still looking at the card, she resumed climbing the stairs… and wound up tripping. She quickly grabbed the rail to keep from falling, which resulted in her tearing the paper the letter was on. “Oh, no,” she cried. “They’re gonna send me home before I even get a chance to take any classes because I’m not even responsible enough to make my pokemon behave or take care of important letters.” She turned and sat down with a sob.

“Seee, see, dot?” The little pokemon crawled onto Mandy’s lap and nudged against her hand. “Seedot.”

Smiling shakily, Mandy petted the little seedot. “Yes, Bob, I guess I’m overreacting just a bit.” She carefully folded the torn paper and put it back in the envelope with the card. Placing the envelope in her backpack, she picked up the pokemon and cuddled it as she stood and continued up the stairs.

Regarding your character's personality, why is she worried grownups won't take her seriously exactly? I only ask this because while reading through it I was slightly concerned about a lack of weaknesses or 'flaws' to her character, and this seems like it might be a decent lead into one.

The rest of your application looks perfectly fine~

That's what I forgot to change! While I was writing the opening post, I thought about that, and was going to add that part to her personality. She has experienced in the past that others, especially adults, think she is younger than she is because of her size and treated her accordingly. Also, I was going to change her age to 12, which would accentuate just how short she is for her age. That and the little birthmark are things she's self-conscious of.

So, do I have perms to join in the RP? If so, any suggestions of how I insert her into the action? I was thinking she was one of those kind of students that comes in mid-term or something, and that can be another thing that causes her a bit of anxiety... wanting to fit in and all.

If its not too late to sign up, I have a application. Also, Odds are I won't be able to get steady consistent access to the Internet until the 4th of September due to the fact that I've recently moved. But I can almost 100% Certain get on once a week.

Name: Angelo Xenofen

Nickname: Angelato

Age: 13

Sex: Male

Dorm: Suicune

Appearance: 6'2" in height.

Weight: 142 lb.

White Hair, very messy

Blue Eyes

Slight Tan

Although he keeps it covered most of the time, Angelo's left arm is covered in burns that haven't healed from early childhood.

Always wears a light, purple coat that goes down to his knees, leaves it unbuttoned.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Personality: Angelo is a caring person, but has great trouble socializing with people. Angelo rarely understands sarcasm and is easily agitated. He often says things without knowing their true meaning or how offensive they can be. The few human friends Angelo has made are surprised over how much he will sacrifice to help them. Angelo is very analytical. He always surveys new environments to get a feel for the area and to find places for various actions, such as hiding or escaping. In battle, Angelo quickly picks up on the strengths and weaknesses of his opponents, but rarely capitalizes on it as he prefers to let his Pokemon fight their way rather than his way. Typically the only orders he gives in battles are what moves to use. Angelo is very kind to Pokemon in general. He will often tire himself trying to help a Pokemon. He never yells at or strikes a Pokemon, even when angry. Angelo bonds with Pokemon easily because of his kindness. However, he is deeply afraid of Houndooms and will be very cruel to one when he can't avoid dealing with it in an attempt to mask his fear.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
History: Angelo comes from a small farm town in Western Unova (somewhere between Anvil Town and Mistrialion City, not getting specific). His father is a Pokemon Breeder of great local renown and his mother is one of the few Pokemon doctors in the area.

There were many times his parents weren't in the house during his younger years, so Angelo would often be left with their Pokemon. Angelo's only memory from this period happens to be the origin of his only fear. He was three years old and had been talking and walking for awhile now. Angelo, in the foolishness that a toddler has, decided to play with the tail of his father's Houndoom, one of the few Pokemon in the farm allowed in the house. The Houndoom tried to politely stop him, but Angelo refused to stop. Eventually the Houndoom snapped and let loose a small fire on Angelo. Nothing in the house was damaged, but Angelo has severe burns on his left arm that haven't healed to this day.

When Angelo was five, his father gave him a Pokemon Egg. His father told him that if mistreated any Pokemon on the ranch before the egg hatched, he would take it away. Even after it hatched, Angelo never stopped following this, at first in fear of losing the pokemon, later as an ingrained habit. It also quickly advanced from kindness to Pokemon, to kindness to everything. This egg hatched a few months into a Marill, which Angelo named Marie. Angelo and Marie became inseparable almost overnight. His father allowed Angelo to have Marie battle Pokemon on the farm provided the Pokemon wasn't being used in the breeding and Marie could handle it. Marie quickly became very strong, while inheriting the kindness Angelo had towards everything living. Marie evolved into an Azumarill a year after her birth.

At age seven, Angelo started attending the local trainer school. He shot up to the top of the class almost instantly because Angelo would often watch his father while he worked. The only aspect of school he failed at was the social one. He had never really interacted with people his age before, and thus made many social errors. The few friends he did make helped make sure Angelo wasn't mocked at school. His top marks helped earn the attention of many Pokemon Academies. He also received the nickname "Angelato" due to a love of ice cream at this time.

When he was eleven, he found a Swablu lying injured in the school playground. He worked with his mother to restore the Swablu's health. When it came time to release it back into the wild, the Swablu refused to leave Angelo's side. So Angelo called the Swablu Pina and continued to raise her. His father gave him another Pokemon Egg when he was twelve and it hatched on the voyage to the Academy. The Pokemon that came from the egg was a Togepi and Angelo named it Lady Joy.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pokemon:

Marie the Azumarill, Lv 25(Its merely an Azumarill because it doesn't make sense for a guy to have his Marill unevolved after 8 years)

Marie is a caring but competitive Pokemon. Marie will often refuse to attack young Pokemon, injured Pokemon, or Pokemon that are smaller than her. She will only attack them if they repeatedly pull on her tail. Marie, despite her caring side, loves a good fight. She is very proud of her Huge Power and will often challenge Pokemon larger than herself to improve. Whenever she wins a fight, she often stops to check on the other Pokemon.

Moves: Belly Drum, Aqua Jet, Play Rough, Ice Punch, Brick Break, Strength

Pina the Swablu, Lv 11

Pina is a very sweet Pokemon. She will give various signs of affection to almost anything that is living and breathing. When Pina fights, she doesn't attack unless she is struck first. Pina will use any chance to bathe since she dislikes feeling dirty.

Moves: Sing, Fly, Peck, Safeguard, Return, Roost

Lady Joy the Togepi, Lv 1

Lady Joy is a carefree and random Pokemon. She does practically anything she wants, when she wants. She doesn't take much seriously and is often getting into trouble.

Moves: Charm, Metronome, Water Pulse, Return
