Ack, see, there I went again, completely forgetting places. My Halloween was pretty cool. I overloaded on pie. And yeah, I'm looking forward to the holidays. Far more than I am the snow... I can't say I like the cold...
I was thinking for him to carry a notepad, and write in it at pretty much random times; y'know, during conversations, while battling, stuff like that. Also, I was going to make him start talking in rhyme when he gets carried away with things. That's what I've got as far as fun gimmicks, anyway.
Then, despite being a poet, I want to give him something of a blunt personality, instead of being all eloquent and stuff. Also, a lack of confidence; make him one of those who never want to do anything, because they think they're going to screw it up.
As for an outfit... no idea.
Pokemon team would be... Persian, Altaria, and of course, that Chatot.
Sounds awesome. Have you thought about clothing? And, think you should make the Chatot a Wobbefet or however you spell that ugly mofo of a Pokemon's name, but the Chatot randomly popping out of its ball, quoting from random literature? That would add a little bit of lol to your character, if you could come up with something that wasn't completely from the Anime?
After all, if he is a character in a fic, a good thing is to make the reader laugh.
Alright, so it's a poet guy, to be blunt. For his Pokemon, I was thinking Persian, Altaria, and a Chatot that sits on his shoulder and randomly quotes pieces of literature. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with any more details.
