    Okay so. . . First time Apping for an OC student/PokemonTrainer. Actually first time I tried apping for an OC in a pokemon RP in general lD. I tried to make a somewhat good trainer or at least what I might feel a little comfortable with, WITHOUT making it a cliche rip off of a main character so. . . hope it's okay.

    Name (First, Middle-optional and Last): Kenshin Ren

    Nickname (Optional): None currently

    Age (10-15): 13

    Gender (Male or Female): Male

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

    Appearance (A picture can be provided instead of a description if you so wish):
    Brown hair, Dark Green Eyes, Caucasian. If he's not wearing his dorm jacket he'll usually wear a black jacket with red stripes on it. He'll usually alternate between them from time to time depending on his mood. (Unlike most characters in Anime who wear the same outfit every day this guy actually bothers to change his outfit XDDD)

    Personality (How does your character act and react to others? Their mental state? Flaws and/or personal weaknesses?): 5 lines minimum
    Kenshin is usually very modest and shy around other people. He's usually socially awkward since this is his first year at the academy. He usually was comfortable with a group of friends he had back home for years but now he's just slowly adjusting to life at the academy.
    In addition, he tends to be a little hesitant with having pokemon battles with strangers. With his friends he could battle them just fine because he felt better around them, same with wild pokemon too, but otherwise he will be hesitant and some times turn down a challenge. Mainly because he is a little paranoid his pokemon might get too injured battling an academy student.

    As a result of his social awkwardness, sometimes he'll spend his time working on really impressive Secret Bases using Secret Power, only for himself and hsi pokemon to hang out in.

    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?): 10 lines minimum
    Kenshin wasn't a very outgoing kid at first. His parents got him a pikachu when he was younger, hoping it might help him be inspired enough to try and meet other kids with pokemon. Just to help him get a few friends. What they didn't realize though was how serious Kenshin became at taking care of his pokemon or just how close he would become to taking care of his pokemon. Pikachu pretty much became Kenshin's first friend in his own opinion. After a while, Kenshin met a group of other kids with trainers and they made a pretend group of trying to pretend to be trainers. As time went on though, they became more and more serious about it until eventually their group did become a small young pokemon trainer group where they tried helping each other train their pokemon to the best of their abilities. While it didn't go exactly as his parents expected to, they were still glad he was able to develope some human friends and supported him and his group. One main way they did this was by giving him a Pokedex. The Pokedex pretty much helped him become a little bit more involved in the group since no one in the group was old enough at the time to recieve a pokedex and pokemon at age 10 just to go on a pokemon trainer adventure, so this was somewhat an important piece of equipment for the group to use. Even then, Kenshin would tend to do a little extra looking into on his own with a little help from his parents and a few older trainers he'd get a chance to meet every now and then when it came to training his Pikachu. Eventually this determination was what helped him teach his Pikachu Volt Tackle and later capture and train his other two pokemon, Torchic and a red Dratini. Another thing he did for the group was that he would have his torchic help him make really good secret bases for them to use for their private hangouts. (like way beyond average of what you see most people do with Secret power)

    He just got accepted into the Pokemon Trainer Academy recently, much to his parents help. They thought it would give him a chance to become a better pokemon trianer and hopefully help him become a bit more outgoing than before.
