Crossroads ; A JOHTO STORY
You wake up in your home in Cherrygrove City, Johto. This is the day when the resident pokémon researcher, professor Pine, has promised to give you a rare pokémon and a pokédex in return for your participation in her study. The study basically involves training your given pokémon and reporting any successes or oddities back to the professor. Since it's tradition that most kids take a leave from school to go on a pokémon journey once they become teenagers, this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

The truth is... dark powers lurk in Johto these days. A criminal organisation called Team Rocket is creeping into higher and higher ranks in the pokémon world, and they seem difficult to stop. Money is power in this world. However, an underground organization opposing TR has formed, and they are doing everything they can to mess up TR's business.

Is there a link between professor Pine's study and Team Rocket? Will you take on the gym challenge, or maybe focus on seeking out the brewing corruption around Johto? Will your pokémon partner become your strongest champion, or will you gather a large team of pokémon to grow as a trainer and as a human being? So many questions. And even more answers.

The world of pokémon lies ahead. Step into your very own adventure!
Currently, no spots are open.

the workings of the RP
Areas will be presented as chapters, and each chapter will give you options on what events or missions to undertake. You will not be able to do them all, so the main game lies in choosing the events that will shape your character and the adventure to your taste. There will also be setting descriptions and lists of pokémon available for capture.

Players choosing the same events should do them together. This is to make the RP enjoyable for you so that you won't have to write on your own, and also to avert story troubles. Player interaction can be done through joint posts, which can be created by sending a PM back and forth and building onto the text until a story worthy of a post has been made - OR by using titanpad! You may of course also take turns posting directly in the IC thread if you prefer that. If the players wish so, the GM can control NPCs sometimes.

Levels are handed out by the GM whenever you finish an event. Levels are earned from descriptive battles and as bonus points for well-made event-related posts. Rest assure I won't judge writing quality like spelling and grammar. If you don't have time to write a whole chapter at once, split it up into several posts over time.

When capturing pokémon, you do not have to wait for approval. You may battle wild pokémon or befriend them, and you may trade with other players and with NPCs. NPCs will only trade you pokémon that were available in previous chapters though! Available wild pokémon, their level and attacks will be in the chapter description.

Just so you know... The events of Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow/Gold/Silver have not occured in this pokémon world. The story of this RP will sort of replace the game canon, just so we're all in the clear about that ;)


starter pokémon
The pokémon you receive from professor Pine will start at level 5. Reserve one in your SU. And yes, they will be shiny colored. That's part of the weirdness about them. And they will get even weirder as the RP goes on... Dare you discover why?



Chespin is taken by Doctor.
Cyndaquil is taken by Sir Bastian.
Chikorita is taken by Alby4t5.
Totodile is taken by Greiger.
Froakie or something similar is taken by Raikiri.
Fennekin is taken by a little wooly piece of steam.


rules
1 - Follow all the PC and Roleplay Corner rules.

2 - The rating is T. I don't see a reason to describe battles, romance or injuries with more detail than this rating will allow. You are free to describe pokémon battling in a way you feel comfortable with, but things should be closer to the anime's style than to a bloody war or real life streetfight.

3 - Be polite and nice OOC. I have the final word on everything, for the sake of organisation.

4 - Reservations only lasts for ~1 day, unless you have a good reason for needing more time. If you want in, make an effort to create a character you feel you can play as for some time, but don't drag things out! Hence the short reservation time.

5 - A word of caution: don't join if you don't enjoy writing about pokémon trainers, or if you are not prepared to write on a regular basis. As most events will require you to post together with others, it's a shame if you leave them waiting for too long :(


sign up sheet
Name: (up to your imagination)
Age: (13-16, normally you are a young teenager when you leave on first journey and those were the kind of people professor Pine wanted for her study)
Gender: (female or male)
Starter: (type here what starter you'd like from the list above, and write an egg or TM move you'd like it to know as well!)

Appearance: (what kind of face, body and hair does your character have? What do they wear on the journey? If you put up a picture it will probably be enough, but if I for some reason want more description, I'll let you know)

Family: (how and with whom does your character live?)
Goals and interests: (list, and explain if you want, some things your character likes to do in their free time. Dreams and aspirations should be listed as well)
Rival: (optional! give your character some kind of rival! Either a trainer to encounter now and then on your journey, or a rival in another sense. Please also write a bit about how your character knows the rival, maybe some history between them)

Strengths: (what is your character good at? What are the positive sides of their personality?)
Weaknesses: (what are your character's fears? What are they bad at? What are the negative sides of their personality?)

I shall have a SU of my own as well~ Skipping RP sample for myself, hope you don't mind.

Name: Aberdeen Montany
Age: 14
Gender: Male
Starter: Chespin, with Synthesis

Family: Aberdeen lives in Cherrygrove with his parents. His two years older sister, Anabel, died in an accident involving pokémon a couple of years ago and Aberdeen has seemingly managed to get over it by not being as emotional nowadays as before. He used to be a bit of a crybaby, while Anabel was the tough kid. Now he's taken on some of her personality, more or less subconsciously. Ab's father works in a flower shop and his mother works as a nurse at the Pokémon Center. They have one pokémon partner each, Sunflora and Wigglytuff with whom Ab grew up, but they aren't trainers.

Goals and interests: Aberdeen enjoys listening to music a lot, and brings his mp3 player and large red headphones on the journey. His mind usually plays a soundtrack in the background of every situation whether he wants it or not, so better just make sure the sound quality is good by playing the music for real. He's also fascinated by space, stars and science-fiction, and has a lot of games and movies on it. He's not sure of what his ultimate goal with the journey is, except traveling and meeting pokémon and maybe battling as well. The gym challenge seems secondary in his mind. Mostly, which he probably won't admit to anyone openly though, he wishes to experience things and take chances and risks while he can... Before he dies. His sister lived safely and never took many chances at all, and that didn't do anything to help her. So if Ab runs into a crazy chance, he's likely to take it. Just for the sake of taking it.

Rival: His sister's childhood friend, Rachel, is one year older than Aberdeen. Ever since Anabel passed away, Rachel has been different too. She has spoken about leaving on a pokémon journey, but she doesn't need to take part of some study to do so. She already owns a pokémon. Aberdeen has always looked up to her and hopes that he'll meet her now and then on his journey, since they're leaving at the same time, but he's somewhat anxious about her turning out more successful than him... An interesting detail is that Rachel always loved fantasy stories and creatures, and books and movies on that genre. Their rivalry is a battle between fantasy and sci-fi. Elves and vulcans... Or something.

Strengths: Ab can surprise others by thinking out of the box. Lacks a proper sense of pride; admits that he's wrong rather easily if something tells him something that makes more sense. Not easily confused; sees what's important, at least to him right there and then. As such, he is quick thinking in the heat of things but not always the wisest when it comes to big decisions. Generally positive and cheerful.

Weaknesses: Sort of reckless, stemming from his wish to accomplish something and take risks in life. Doesn't like contemplating things, so can make decisions a bit too quickly sometimes. Mostly only afraid of ghosts and anything that's got to do with death, but that can make him pretty faint-hearted. Physically weak. Might be a bit selfish when he can't seem gain anything from being nice, so he's not really the righteous type.

No worries. You wrote Fennekin but it's okay to change your mind as long as no one else has grabbed Froakie!

Nom cookies.

God damn you, Red. Here I am, just minding my own business, and then you make an actually interesting Journey RP. I've never been a big fan of them, for RP's sake, since it always feels like you're just writing a one-man story, but your idea of having events per chapter that people are going to do together... kind of removes that part of my thoughts of RPs such as this.

I'm VERY tempted to ask you for a reservation with Cyndaquil, but... I don't know if I should. I'd feel awful if I had to drop out. Damn you, Red

Bastian, while RPers leaving is the saddest thing, I hope this won't be as aimless as some other journey like RPs have been. So maybe you will find it enjoyable enough to stick around :3 I'm reserving Cynda for you, so take a day to consider it and see if you can come up with a character you're comfortable with?

Alby4t5, Chiko is reserved for you! I don't believe I've seen you around, are you in any other RPs?

Aha! You'll have to forgive me, as SE hasn't started yet, I haven't checked back every day. But it would be fun if we were a bunch of people playing both RPs parallel :)

Alright, so... when Red replied to my indecisiveness, I was already over halfway done with this <_< What can I say? There's potential to stay away from an "I don't know what to post D:" feeling here, with the new system Red's putting in play with the events and stuff. Anyways, here's my SU, and if anything needs changing, do let me know :3

Oh, and... I clearly stole the image from somewhere on DA, and I'm very sorry for that, but I prefer it when I have something visual to go with the character xP

Christina Langley - Langley Residence

Name: Christina Langley

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Starter: Cyndaquil, Extrasensory


Appearance:
Spoiler:

Christina is generally as she looks in the picture, albeit she usually carries her bag with the strap on the opposite shoulder, she doesn’t have those odd appendages around her wrists (Though she does still wear the gloves), and she doesn’t have the chains coming off of her belt.

Family: She lives with her father, her mother travelling overseas very often, due to her being employed on the S.S. Aqua as a chef. She also used to live with her brother, Marcus, who’s two years older than Christina, and left on his Pokémon Journey when he was sixteen, three years ago. The Langley family live in a moderate, two-story house near the outskirts of the town with a broken-down playground not too far away from where they live.

Goals and interests: Christina wants to, in the end, become even more famous than her brother. She has no idea how to do this, or what exactly it is she wants to –do- to become famous, but a Pokémon Journey, for her, is about bonding with your Pokémon and, most of all, discovery. Both of the personal and the worldly kind. So she figures the Journey is a great place to start looking for answers to the questions she’s asking herself, not bothered by the fact that her goal more or less just spurred from her brother teasing her relentlessly since they were little.
She greatly enjoys the ideas of adventure and exploring and, unlike most kids, had a very mixed childhood of both playing video games, and roaming the forest’s edge around the town they lived in. She was fascinated with the idea of finding new areas of the woods that nobody had been to before, to map it out and set up a little camp and afterwards, fight off pretend-monsters and evil Pokémon. She enjoys music a lot and isn’t afraid of showing it with a bit of dancing or humming along if she knows the song and it’s played loud enough. Another thing to note is that she loves swimming, bathing and sailing, thanks to her mother’s early influence on her, and she won’t shy away from taking a dip in a lake, should she come across one.

Rival: You –could- say that Christina’s older brother Marcus, is sort of a rival to her. She always had to hear about how Marcus was insanely popular with the girls, and he constantly belittled her, picking fun at her whenever he could, though in a… brotherly sense. The fact that he left on his journey before her and he’s older than her, as well as the fact that he’s started becoming a somewhat well-known Pokémon battler on TV, secretly makes Christina want to do ten times better than Marcus, though she’d never admit that to anyone.

Strengths: Christina is a very go-and-get-‘em type person, meaning that she likes to tackle her problems head on, rather than wait around and try and think of some other solution. She can be very feisty, but at the same time, very cheerful and happy, and despite any first impressions that would hint towards a tomboy, she’s definitely not afraid of showing her more feminine side either. Due to her ‘adventuring’ and running around in early childhood and even as she grew up, she’s become a rather agile person as well, though not very strong, she’s definitely quick on her feet.
She cares a lot for her friends and those around her, believing in fairness and fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves. However, if her friends or people close to her are in danger, her attitude changes from her usually feisty mannerisms, to a more cautious one, which makes it clear that she would blame herself if something were to happen to them while in her presence.

Weaknesses: Despite her love of the waters and seas, Christina is still deathly afraid of drowning, even more so than most people. Should she be on a bridge or a boat that she starts sensing is about to sink, or a scenario like it, she’ll panic and freak out. As such, she’s also very afraid of underwater Pokémon and certain fish, which is also a reason as to why she would never ever touch any kind of seafood (Though she claims it’s because they have the most horrid stink).
While she’s very spunky and can be very ‘Take charge’, this also words as a double-edged sword, as she can be very stubborn, both in her actions and her point of views, though usually it’s more the latter than the first. Her adventurous mind and her willingness to charge into situations along with her natural curiosity, also often lands her in trouble or bad situations, which, in some cases, could be argued that she sort of asked for. She’s also not very fond of insects or ‘creepy-crawlies’ of any kind, though this is not to the point that her fear of underwater ‘mon stretch. It’s more the ‘Stay at a distance and watch them burn with glee’ sort of situation.

Roleplay sample:
Spoiler:
“Christina, it’s time to get up.”
“Mrngnmmh…”
“Christina, it’s ten in the morning, come on, get out of bed.”
“Nmmfmmhmmh… go’waymnmmmh…”

Christina’s father sighed, resting his hands on his hips as he watched his daughter, bundled up in her bed, under her blanket. When he’d come upstairs to try and wake her up, she’d simply shrugged him off and turned her back to him, continuing to snooze. He then turned and stepped over to the opposite wall, pulling the curtains away from the window, causing the sun to shine through, the rays hitting Christina’s back, which she could very well feel, from the sound of the growl emitting from her as they did.

“Look, young lady, -you- were the one who asked me to help remind you to get out of bed this morning. Now, as far as I can see, you’re still laying in bed, despite the fact that I’ve been trying to wake you for the past-“ He raised his arm to check the clock on his wrist. “- Fifteen minutes! I even let you sleep ten minutes longer the first time I was up here! Now, I don’t know what the professor told you, but if you told me to get you up now, there’s probably a good reason for it! You’ll end up missing out on your journey if you don’t get up, and the Pokémon you’d want the most will be gone!”

During her father’s rant, Christina managed to listen to just about five words he said while pulling the blanket up tighter around her body, murring out quietly. “Mmh, that’s good, dad… nice, warm sleepies… and Pokémon…” Slowly blinking her eyes open, she squinted at the wall she was facing as her father’s words slowly sunk in, her eyes quickly widening as she jerked up into a seated position, panic written all over her face.

“… Crap! Dad, I need breakfast, stat! I have to hurry!”
She practically leapt from her bed to find the clothes and the items she had put out the night before, frantically tearing through her wardrobe as the items weren’t where she remembered putting them a mere ten hours ago. Her father sighed and shook his head with a smile, turning and heading downstairs again while calling out over his shoulder. “Breakfast’s ready, you can grab a few slices of bread on your way out. And your bag and pouch is down here.”

“Thanks, pops!” Christina managed to call out over the sound of her accidentally knocking over a lamp during her struggle to put on her green and white-striped tank top, wincing a little as it landed, but thankfully, it didn’t break against the carpeted floor. She breathed out a small, exhasperated sigh as she looked into the mirror, fiddling with her hair in order to set it up properly, the young, excited soon-to-be-trainer staring back at her. What a start to a day… and I get the feeling this is only the beginning.

Moahaha, dis be irresistible.

Accepted with a golden star, Sir. Welcome to the RP!

Note that the first chapter of the RP will be on Route 30, north of Cherrygrove. This is mainly because I think starting in the town in past RPs has given them such a slow start, writing about meeting the professor and getting the pokémon etc etc so let's kick it into higher gear immediately ;) You are of course free to recap or give your character's thoughts from this in your first posts, though.

XD Alright, you've convinced me, we'll make it a female.

Now we just need more people! Oh, and we're only having 6 journey... ers, right? Since there's only six starters? *Not a fan of too huge RPs*

Name: Melody Hughes

Age: 15

Gender: Female

Starter: Chikorita (Female, yes?), Refresh

Appearance: Melody's appearance is pretty similar to that of her picture up above. She is a bit short for her age, standing at 4'9". Because of this, Melody often gets people to confuse her for being a few years younger than she actually is. Due of her tomboyish nature, she tends to avoid wearing more girlish colors such as pinks and purples and wear shorts as opposed to skirts and dresses. When traveling, she keeps all her items in a dark green backpack which she wears off her left shoulder.

Family: Melody lives with hermother and older sister. Her mother makes a living working as a nurse within Cherrygrove's Pokecenter. Her older twin sister, Emily, decided not to embrace the life of a Pokemon trainer. Rather, she decided to finish schooling and then study to become a teacher herself. Melody's father, Cliff, used to live with the family as well. However, since her father is a Pokemon trainer himself. The man had began his career as a trainer at the age of 15 years old, much like Melody is now. However, he rarely stops by home, which leaves a noticable void in the family's lives. The family makes its home in a quaint, little house close by the Pokemon Center where Melody's mother works.

Rival: Melody considers her father to be her rival. Always hearing stories from both her mother and her sister about his talents and adventures, Melody has found herself realizing that her pining for a Pokemon journey of her own stems from those stories she heard growing up as a child. She has accompanied her family to see some of his battles. He has even ventured to Indego Plateau on numerous occasions to take on the Elite 4 challenge. While Cliff has never actually managed to battle and win against the Champion, he has won various awards and tournaments within the Johto region. This has made him fairly well-known in the region. Melody has always felt a slight anger at her father's way of living. While she has no disrespect for the man's life as a trainer, she feels that Cliff has essentially abandoned his family, letting his fame and reputation.

Goals and Interests: Melody has always dreamed about embarking on a Pokemon journey of her own. Facing trainers in epic battles, meeting and forming an unstoppable team of Pokemon, traveling across Johto and seeing all the region has to offer... The girl wants to experience it all. As she grew up, Melody began to find another desire building into her dreams of a career as a trainer: finding and confronting her father. The girl feels that she would only be a successful trainer if she is able to meet her father and defeat him properly in a Pokemon battle. Because of this, she has made it her goal to surpass him in skill and while keeping her family close, instead of abandoning them as he did.

Strengths: A generally positive thinker with energy to spare. Melody is one to approach every challenge with a smile and a will to never give up, no matter how difficult it may seem. Melody is generally a very friendly girl, always willing to greet everyone with a smile and lend an ear to anyone who may need it. A tomboy by nature, Melody always spent a good deal of time outside playing games like baseball instead of playing with dolls and the like. Because of this, she prides herself on being tough and a bit stronger than most girls her age.

Weaknesses: Because of her hyper active tendancies, Melody often has a hard time managing to keep quiet and still at points. This has been a problem for her as long as she can remember, often getting her into trouble when she was in school for not being able to keep still during class. She also has a habit to start rambling away while talking, letting her imagination get the best of her as she lets the endless possibilities of something run through her mind. Always one to be a bit on the clumsy side, sneaking about is not her strong suit by any means. Melody is absolutely terrified of heights.

Roleplay Sample:
Spoiler:
Melody tossed and turned in the bed. Sleep was not coming easy to the girl, and for good reason too. After all, one did not set out to begin their career as a Pokemon trainer everyday. The teenager had been anxiously awaiting this day for years. Needless to say, Melody was more excited than a Aipom in a forest of banana trees.

"Hey... Hey, Melody?" a girl's voice called out, gaining the attention of the girl. "Mel, are you still awake?"

Recognizing the voice of her twin sister, Emily, Melody glanced up from her bottom bunk and spotted her sister, just as awake as she was. A knowing smile was stretched across the older twin's face as she slowly sat up in her bed and looked down at Melody. A small giggle escaped Emily's lips as she watched Melody flop back onto the matress of her bed.

"That obvious, huh?" Melody asked.

"Well, I had a sneaking suspicion after you started knocking on the walls while singing," Emily replied. "What's got you so wired?"

"Well..." Melody began. She paused for a moment, sitting back up with a sigh. Melody watched as Emily crawled towards the ladder of the bunk beds and then climbed down, taking a seat beside her younger sister. The two girls looked very much like each other, save for the fact that Emily was a good six inches taller than Melody was, something which irked the girl to no end. "I guess you could say I got those pre-journey jitters, you know?"

"I guess that's understa-" Emily began to reply, only for Melody to keep talking over her.

"I mean, I've been waiting for this day for like, ever, you know? And now of all a sudden it's right in front of me? I mean, what if I fail? What if I'm no good and my Pokemon runs away?" Melody rambled.

"Melody, I think you're being just a bit of a wor-"

"What if I get lost and stranded in some forest with days with nothing but the clothes on my back and I end up going totally bonkers and eat my shoes to survive, turning into one of those bearded nutjobs like you see in this doofy cartoons that talk in garbled nonsense, but somehow offer sagely advice that the main character always somehow manages to understand even though there's no way anyone should ever be able to understand anything the nut's saying a-"

"Melody!" Emily called out, snapping her fingers in front of Melody's face to get the younger sibling's attention.

A small nervous giggle escaped Melody's lips as she rubbed the back of her head. "Was I... doing it again?"

"Just a bit," Emily replied, putting her hand on the girl's shoulder. She gave Melody a warm smile and sighed. "I know that you're a bit... well, really nervous. But you just need to relax. Getting all worked up isn't going to do anything, but make it impossible for you to set off on the right foot."

"I guess you're right..." Melody sighed.

"Of course I am!" Emily giggled. "Now look, Mel... You're gonna do great! You're gonna set off tomorrow morning and totally kick butt just like you always said you were going to!"

Melody smiled as she nodded at her sister. She was right. It was just a case of some nervous jitters that was keeping her awake. The younger twin gave her sister a hug before Emily began to climb back up to her bunk to get some sleep. Seeing her younger sister relaxed and happy again made Emily feel better... And now that she was settled, the girl would be able to finally catch some sleep. Laying back down, Emily closed her eyes and nestled back under her blankets... just in time to hear Melody start knocking on the wall again.

"Tomorrow morning can't come fast enough..." Emily and Melody sighed at the same time.

Interesting character! Somewhat similar to Christina, with the tomboyish style and active and eager personality and also an older family member already being successful as your rival. But Melody is afraid of heights and Christina is afraid of drowning ^^ Also, Aberdeen's mother also works at Cherrygrove's pokémon center, so maybe the two can be aquainted and Melody and Aberdeen could have met now and then as they were growing up? Maybe they won't really be friends, they will just recognize each other when they meet.

All in all, I'm sure our characters will be different enough when we get started on the RP, even though there are some similarities in the SUs. It's no big deal, I always loved to play as cheerful and energetic character rather than calm and dark ones, haha.

Alby4t5, you are accepted. Welcome!


Something I might need to say. At the start of the RP, you'll only have pokéballs, pokédex and necessary stuff like food and extra clothes with you. No tents or something like that, sleeping bag is okay to bring though. You'll receive many special and helpful items over the course of your journey. If you want to buy or obtain other medicines than potions, berries and simple cures (poison heal, paralyze cure, awakening, stuff that only heals one specific thing), ask me beforehand. Some things, such as Full Restore and Revive are rare in this RP and can't be bought everywhere.


So now we wait for Greiger to get healthier and TD to bring his SU to the scene. If their SUs are allright (I don't doubt it!) we only have Fennekin left.

Is there room for me to join as well? If Fennekin is the only Pokemon I can pick right now, then I will gladly take it, but I won't reserve it just in case someone doesn't follow through with their reservation.

A PC-newbie, huh? :3 Sure, we'll reserve you for Fennekin for now, but if TD or Greiger doesn't show up on time, you'll be the first person to claim Totodile or Froakie if you wish.

Have you roleplayed somewhere else before? :3

Oh, welcome to PC, Cooper! It's nice seeing a fresh face here We're a friendly bunch, so don't be afraid of asking us anything if you need help :3 And Red, as "Special and helpful items", does that include non-game items as well? Like, you specifically mentioned a tent, so I'm imagining it'd be possible to buy a tent somewhere in the game at some point, if you'd be able to make the money for it But I'm just guessing here!

Oh, and just so we're clear, we -do- have like, a couple potions and curative items like burn heals, paralyze heals, antidotes, etc?

Not for about a year, but I've done a few roleplays on a much smaller forum, Ludicom, as well as some small plots on Neopets' boards. I've done some personal projects as well, like some character and plot designs.
It's been a while since I've done anything with a community, and I'm looking to jump back in.

I'll stick with the Fennekin, actually. I have a great way to let it fit with my character.

Name: Nathan Cooper
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Starter: Fennekin, with Thief(Fang-Lin)

Appearance:Nate has a bit of a round face structure, though he is somewhat scrawny. He has good mucle tone, however. He stands at 5'11" His blonde hair is shaved but that isn't obvious anyway because he keeps a yellow skull cap over it and a dull, orange cap over that. The cap has an odd, yellow symbol on the front that looks like it might symbolize a portal of some kind. Really, it is just a splatter of paint. Nate wears a long-sleeved, dark gray shirt with a dull, blue fleece vest over it. His pants are gray cargo pants that have multiple scuffs all over them and a long gash that runs from the pocket to the knee on the left leg. It is mostly sown together, but the threading has come undone in the center of the tear. Nate wears an odd backpack that is simply an open cylinder of fabric with a draw string at the top. He often wears thin, black gloves with grips on the palm and fingers.

Family: Nate's parents own an apartment building on the Northwest corner of the city. He and his family live in the bottom apartment. His brother, Ristar, is two years older and left on his own journey when he turned 16. Nate's parents have never connected well with him, and often will allow him to have his own time out in the city. Because of this, Nate spends most of his time in the wooded area behind the apartment building.
Goals and interests: Because of the relationship with his parents, Nate has turned to stealing. He has never stolen much in one job, but he often will steal small amounts of money, food, and sometimes Pokeballs. He picked up the habit because he had access to the apartments in his family's building. Although he sees the lawlessness it his habit, he still does it anyway and has no plan to stop. He actually seeks to be a great thief one day. He doesn't have a true direction in life, but he does want to explore the regions of the world with a Pokemon by his side.
Rival: Nate has resentment for his brother because of the fact that Ristar has the ability to leave this city and actually have a life of his own. Ristar also has a strong ability to train Dragon Pokemon. In fact, Ristar was given a Bagon when he turned 14 by an elder from Blackthorn City. Ristar is currently training with his prized team that includes a Salamence and a Dodrio in Dragonspiral Tower. Nate hopes to one day be as strong as his brother, but he fears Ristar because he has progressed so far in two years.

Strengths: Though he has a habit to steal, Nate will never steal if he knows that his actions will lead to a terrible outcome. Sometimes he has been hired by others to steal, but he has declined jobs if he knows he could hurt someone in the process. He has built up a good stamina by spending so much time in the forest. Nate also has the wisdom to back out of an argument when he sees he cannot win, though he is not easily persuaded. He will give in to allow others to take the lead, though he might have resentment for them.
Weaknesses: Nate is prideful and will only rarely allow himself to be persuaded. He allows resentment and anger to build but conceals it. He sometimes lets his temper flare but usually can keep it under wraps. He also has a fear a flames, but not in small proportions.

Roleplay sample:
Spoiler:
The glass doors closed behind Nate as he walked out of the lab. Right by his side was an odd, gray, fox-like Pokemon. What did the Professor call it? Fang-Lin? That's just what he would call it anyway. He had heard of trainers that gave their Pokemon nicknames.
It didn't matter to him; this was the only Pokemon that was available. He really just wanted a reason to get out of Cherrygrove, away from his family, and onto something exciting. Hopefully Fang-Lin would be an exciting Pokemon.
Nate walked to his apartment that he shared with his parents. He already had everything he needed packed. A few pieces of bread, some Poké, and a few Pokeballs. The Professor had given him some kind of machine as well. He knew that it had something to do with Pokemon. Whatever; he would figure it out later.
As he left his room, Nate tried to be quiet. He really didn't want to have to see his parents before he left. They knew what Pine had asked of him, and they'd figure out eventually that he was gone.
Wait, where's Fang-Lin? The fox had followed him in, he was sure. Nate walked over to the kitchen and found the little guy chewing on a piece of bread. Fang-Lin looked up at him and cocked his head.
"So you're a thief, eh?" Nate stooped down and patted him. "You can have that, just don't take anything from me." He stood back up and walked to the door. Fang-Lin jumped up with the bread in his mouth and leapt to follow Nate out the door.
Nate walked North, past the city limits, and took in the view of the forested path ahead. Fang-Lin seemed happy to be getting out of the city as well. Nate looked down at him and pondered about what kind of Pokemon it was. You've got gray fur, so are you a Steel type? Maybe Rock or Normal? He finally noticed the fact that the tufts of fur in Fang-Lin's looked a little like flames. Oh great; you're a fire type, right?
Nate didn't like fire, and fire didn't like him. He would just have to make sure Fang-Lin didn't get carried away with the Fire attacks. He knew that Pokemon could learn moves outside their type.
The whole time that Nate was analyzing him, Fang-Lin was intently staring at him. This guy is ready to go. Nate thought.
"You ready to journey on?" Nate asked him. Fang-Lin replied with a high-pitched yip and a few shakes of his bushy tail.
"Then come on, let's head out!" Even though he's have to deal with some fire, Nate figured he'd make the best of this new partner.
