Airborne: A Hoenn Journey
Intro
Welcome to the Hoenn Region, a vast tropical land, filled to the brim with exotic locations and boundless oceans. This beautiful region, created by the legendary pokémon, Groudon and Kyogre, is a treasure trove of fun and adventure just waiting for eager pokémon trainers to explore its riches.

It has been exactly fifteen years, since the legendary trainer May thwarted the nefarious schemes of Teams Aqua and Magma, which threatened the entire pokémon world. She has since been hailed as one of the greatest trainers the region had ever seen and thrived in her role as the Poké-League champion. However she has mysteriously gone missing for the past year, leaving Elite Four member, Winona, to take her place.

Regardless of league matters, Hoenn is as prosperous as it has ever been. Today marks a special day in which a number of aspiring trainers in Rustboro City are to receive their starter pokémon... including you! The leading pokémon researcher of the region, Professor Roxanne, has promised to entrust you with a pokémon and a pokédex in return for your participation in her studies. With your starter in hand, and an entire world to explore, who knows what sort of experiences are waiting in store for you out there?

Are you ready? Your very own adventure is about to unfold! Be courageous and leap into the world of pokémon where dreams, adventures, and friendships await!
The Workings
It's been 15 years since the events of Emerald (NOT ORAS). As stated before, the pokémon champion, May, has gone missing for quite some time. Gym Leaders have come and gone with the years, technology has advanced and with it towns and cities have blossomed. Gym Leaders will, for the most part, be original NPC characters, controlled by the GM. However, you'll see a number of familiar faces around the RP :3

For the sake of not making things a pain, there will be no levels or IV/EV system. The RP will take a very anime-style approach on pokémon. Since there are no levels, the Pokemon can earn new moves whenever the roleplayer sees fit, but please be reasonable about this. Also, since there are no levels, pokémon evolution is one of the few things that must be checked for approval with the GMs. PM me first before making your pokémon evolve.

The diversity of Pokémon in Hoenn has changed dramatically over the passing years with the growing popularity of pokémon training. The release of pokémon throughout the region and daycare center have introduced different species into the ecosystems of Hoenn, making the fauna the most diverse it has ever been. Basically, there will be pokémon from all the regions available during this rp, not just the ones native to Hoenn.

You do not need the GM's approval to capture wild pokémon. However, while there may be exceptions, for the most part you are limited to catching one pokémon per route. You can go ahead and capture any pokémon in the given area that you want. Just try and be reasonable with it (making a long detailed post if the captured pokemon is rather rare or hard to catch) Available wild Pokémon, and their attacks will be in the chapter description.

This roleplay will be broken up into a multitude of chapters. Each one will have a number of different events that you may choose from, each event warranting a reward for its completion. However, there will be an overarching story that may take the place of these events. All the chapters will also have a main objective that you much complete by the end, such as making it to a certain town.

The RP will be accepting characters on a "first come-first serve" basis with a limited number of spots. Right now i'm thinking around 9, but that number may expand depending upon interest. However, because of this I will be judging a little harsher than other journey rps may be. If I don't accept your character at first, it's nothing personal and I will work with you in expanding upon your application if you'd like. :D

The starter pokémon that your character receives is up to you! As long as it is a base pokemon with at least one evolution, you're good to go. Also note that you may not have the same starter as any other players. If you submit an SU with the same pokémon as another player who has yet to be accepted, it will be considered a competition and I will accept whichever character I believe to be a better fit for the RP. If this ever happens you could just switch your pokémon to a different one :p

Each starter will start off knowing four moves with a maximum of six learned at any one time. The starters may come knowing a single egg move of your choice. They may also have an ability of your choosing from the list of abilities that they can have naturally.
The Rulez
1. Follow all PokeCommunity/RPC rules and guidelines
2. The GM ruling is law :3
3. The rating is T for Teen, don’t go too crazy. Leave all that for the fan fictions.
4. Try to be as active as possible. I understand that we can all be busy and such, but we gotta move on. If you won’t be posting as much, let the GM know in advance. However, you will be booted off if you do not return or if you go inactive without messaging me.
5. Be respectful to one another, and have fun cause isn't that what it's all about? lolno

You strike a good bargain.

Heck, why not. It's the summer. I'll have a sign up soon enough :3







Varianna "Vivi" Sochi • 17 • Female



Appearance:
Records reveal her height to be 5'2" and weight a healthy 125 pounds. Dental records say she owns metal braces to a set of gleaming white teeth. Both chin-length hair and bangs frame her round face, dyed a pearly purple shade, but abruptly transform into shoulder length on the posterior part of her head. This is normally tied up into high pigtails. But were one to let time do its wonders, they find that the dye washes off into a glossy black headfull of hair. It is this true hair color that matches well with her ocean blue eyes.

With her light beige skin Vivi prefers to sport darker clothes. Dresses and skirts fill her wardrobe, pairing well with her boots and stockings. However, it is due to this attire that rare is it the soul who catches a glimpse of her black and white rose clock tattoo etched on the upper portion of her back. She keeps the significance of the time chosen on the clock a secret.

For a bag Vivi has chosen a pearly purple sling bag with a black strap. Pins adorn the strap that presses firmly against her chest. Pokéball can be attached to the lower part of the strap, to her right side.
Goals and Interests:
From a young age Vivi demonstrated an interest in the creepy crawlers and took up on bug catching. This evolved into a fascination in the Pokémon type, instilling a sense of hunting for the critters. A check list had been made with every bug type known to mankind for her to refer back to. With this, as well as her desire to travel, further fuels her ambition of being a bug type master.

Strengths:
The glass is half empty, but maybe some rain will come by and fill up.

She views the world with a sense of hope and childish wonder. Despite being a realist, she attempts to make it as worthwhile and fun as she can. Life is too short to spend it focusing on the bad when the good is just around the corner. Aiding this type of thinking is her boundless amounts of energy that allow her to pull off what she does. Furthermore, Varianna is blessed with holding a strong desire to succeed. Ambition. With it she displays patience and persistence.

Weaknesses:
Like any other, Vivi is no stranger to flaws. She is fully aware of them, yet has found no reason to change them.

With her ambition comes the ocassional instance of a selfish woman, lacking consideration for others. Despite this, Vivi can become clingy and a victim of jealousy. These traits are worsened due to her strong emotions and playful attitude that can turn cynical.

And yet. Regardless of how she may feel or hurt, Varianna is a secretive individual. She keeps to herself, whether true intentions or feelings, as to avoid feeling exposed and vulnerable.

Brief History:
Vivi hails from Fortree City, the only child belonging to a workaholic nurse and slothful stay-at-home father. Due to her mother constantly working two shifts, Vivi depended on her father. Unfortunately he only gave minimal effort in raising a child, yet the house Pokémon, Kecleon, became rather fond of the toddler. This adoration led to Kecleon watching over the human throughout her childhood. Together they would play and go on bug watching expeditions. Because of the lack of parental restriction, and the limitations a Pokémon had raising a human, Varianna was raised with a generous amount of freedom at her disposal.

At the age of 10, Vivi witnessed her parents abruptly divorce. Their arguments were kept locked behind closed doors, preventing Vivi from understanding why it led to the way it ended. To her it was abrupt. Mrs. Sochi left Vivi in Mr. Sochi's care, but this exposed the child to a man who spiralled down a life of drunken fits and sleep. If he barely gave her any attention or time of day before, much less now. Kecleon and friends became her haven. Adapting was all she could do, and so she did. Despite this Vivi kept a smile plastered on her face, however fake it may have seemed, for the sake of saving her father some more worry and trouble.

The years preceding didn't carry anything significant. In that time she took up on acrobatics and took out her stress on it, pushing the limits to ease herself. Bugs began to mean more than mere collectibles; companions that help. Thus, from then on she studied the bug Pokémon.

Chosen Starter and Nickname:

Anorith (Male)
Swift Swim

• Scratch | Harden | Mud Sport | Cross Poison •


Other:
• Nocturnal ; takes naps throughout the day
• An acrobatic
• Carries loaves of bread due to her love for it. She can be seen snacking on a piece of white bread often


RP Sample: From my first post in PMD Antiquity.
Spoiler:
Ara grew up sickly. Out of all her siblings, despite being the oldest, she didn't make it a priority to take care of herself. For this reason her parents refused to let her go to pursue her desire to be an explorer when she had been younger. That is, until she grew and demonstrated better habits.

But, despite her parent's words of worry, Ara had chosen a small apple. Her overabundance of joy was overshadowing her hunger. To make matters worse, Ara nibbled a small amount of the fruit before leaving it on the dish for another to take

"...ey, ya' eating that?" a deep voice broke through to the Pikachu, who needed a second to figure out it was coming from her left. She gave the explorer - a Golisopod - a sheepish smile before quietly responding.

"Oh! No no, I'm not, sorry," she rapidly mumbled out, hands holding each other for comfort. "You can have it! I'm already full."

"Heh, sweeeeet." And like that the remainder of her small apple was devoured before her eyes. She was content to see her food not wasted.

Anxious to start the mission early in case it were to take longer than she anticipates, Ara proceeds to double check her bag before making her exit. A quick peek at the mirror, purchase of cheri and pecha berries at Farfetch'd's market, and 10 mimute self-motivating speech followed prior to her beginming her trek.

The day was beautiful. Sunlight cascaded down on to the land that was speckled with the shadows clouds casted down upon it. Pokémon sent ripples on the water's surface, going about fulfilling their daily routine. Amongst the scenery was a lone dirt path with patches of grass here and there. A Pikachu travels on it, the blades of grass tickling her.

"This is so exciiiiting!" she squeaked in glee. But it was only a matter of time before her saunter slowed into an uneven pace. Trepidations of the mission began to form, transforming her joyful state to that of doubt and insecurity.

"But... But. But am I ready?" The mouse halted in her steps, eyes gazing into the pond beside her. Her reflection wavered on the iridescent surface.

What stared back was a frightened child.

Nearby shuffling emanating from the bushes startled Ara, her ears frozen in place. Yet what caused the disturbance was revealed to be an infant Starly.

Ara let out a sigh of relief. "I think I can... yes. I think I can. I think I can... I think I can!" she motivates herself, albeit as hard as she tries, it never goes beyond a cute holler.

The journey continues.

Trent Marsh // 16 // Male


Name:
Trent Marsh

Age:
16 years old, born on August 15th

Gender:
Male

Appearance:
Trent stands at 5'9” and is covered in pale, white skin. He has short, midnight black hair that contrast with his lime-colored eyes. For someone his height, he has pretty long legs, which may be why he is as tall as he is considering both of his parents are rather short. His smile is accompanied by near perfect set of teeth that could “light up a room”, or so he's been told. The teenager prefers to wear a combination of white and green to go along with his eyes, but unlike what he's wearing in his picture, he's usually seen in a button-down shirt and shorts. For more important matters, he'll bring out a black jacket and green tie to wear over his body. His bag of choice is a white messenger bag, capable of carrying what any trainer needs on their adventure.
Goals and Interests:
Trent wants to become strong enough to surpass his father, who chose being a trainer over spending time with his child. He understands that he has a long way to go and will use this journey as a way to improve. He hopes that, perhaps, he and his father will cross paths at some point, and by then, he'll be strong enough to face him and any other challenges that stand in his way.
Strengths:
Trent has a lot of energy, almost to the point of being hyperactive. He's able to keep it under control, but what this usually means is that he has a lot of stamina and is friendlier than his usual expression shows. Most of the time, he's dying for someone to say something to him and can't stand silence between people. He can also be quite charming and persuasive if he needs to be, but he prefers not to be that way. Trent isn't very judgmental of others, so he can be easy to talk to sometimes.
Weaknesses:
He's quite impulsive, if something isn't done immediately, often he'll just do it himself, which has the side effect of causing issues. If patience is a virtue, it's certainly not one that Trent was blessed with. He has a habit of taking any negative remark made towards him personally, and finds himself holding grudges very often. All that energy often leads to sleepless nights, too, so sometimes he's too tired in mornings to perform properly. His hasty nature is a huge part of why his Pokemon battling skills leave a lot to be desired.
Brief History:
For pretty much all his life, Trent has lived with his grandparents—who are day care providers--in the rustic Rustboro City. While both of his parents were still alive, they both had dreams of their own that they decided that despite having a child they wouldn't give up: Trent's mother was a figure involved in overseeing rocket launches at the Mossdeep Space Center, and his father was a fine, strong trainer in her own right. Thus Trent was sent back from his true hometown of Mossdeep City to the mainland to live with his grandparents. As a child, Trent could never sit still, and always had to be doing something. Often after school ended he'd take his grandparents Pokemon—a Plusle and a Minun—and get into battles in the grassy areas surrounding Rustboro. Of course, his inexperience with being a Pokemon Trainer and the fact that those weren't his Pokemon more often than not lead to a loss. Trent didn't care though—he genuinely enjoyed the excitement of battling and most of all being around the Pokemon. It was certainly worth the scolding he received from his grandma when he came back home with the exhausted and beaten up Plusle and Minun.

As Trent got older, the boy changed a lot, mellowing a little out and learning how to manage his constant, infinite energy. By now, Trent was only expected to help out with his grandparents's day-care service, other than that, he could do as he pleased. In his freetime when he wasn't helping out at the day-care or taking classes he began hanging out at the Rustboro Gym to watch the battles that happen there, but without a Pokemon of his own, he couldn't take on the gym leader. Over time, the boy grew jealous of those who were able to set off on journeys. How exciting would it be to just take off with Pokemon on a lap around Hoenn? He'd finally be able to visit all those places that he only read of in books. He had tried catching a Pokemon of his own before but wasn't particularly successful in doing so. It became increasingly clear to him that being a city boy wasn't his destiny as the blood of a Trainer boiled in his veins...
Other details:
- Trent is deathly afraid of bug-type Pokemon, especially spiderlike ones. Seeing a spiderlike Pokemon is enough to paralyze him for quite some time.
- May have ADHD (see: does have ADHD)
- He's actually really good at cooking but simply doesn't see becoming a chef or the like as the thing for him.

"This doesn't involve ya, so get lost..."

Naomi Junn / Female / 18 Years Old / Mauville City























Appearance

Naomi stands at a height of 5'9". She sports a somewhat slender body build, with traces of lean muscle toning her body. While her hair is naturally a light blonde, Naomi prefers to keep her hair dyed a vibrant, crimson-red. She tends to keep her hair down past her shoulders, however the girl likes to pull it up into a rather messy, lopsided ponytail more often than not. Her bright hair color is offset by her pale, sapphire-blue eyes. Despite living in Hoenn for her entire life, Naomi sports a rather pale skin complexion. This can most likely be chalked up to her habit of spending most of her time outside during the middle of the night as opposed to during the daytime. In terms of clothing, Naomi prefers to dress in a more... "rebellious" style. As opposed to wearing skirts and heels, Naomi is more comfortable wearing shorts and her beloved pair of black, combat-styled boots. She usually offsets these by wearing various tank tops in dark colors such as black and purple and t-shirts featuring the logos of her favorite bands, such as the Rotting Duskulls. Naomi sports several piercings, including a navel ring and two studs in both of her ears. She also has a heart-shaped tattoo on her abdomen. She keeps all of her training tools in a backpack that tends to resemble a Mudkip.

Strengths

Naomi is an extremely determined individual. Once she sets her mind to something, it is almost impossible for the girl to be deterred or talked out of it. She is more than willing to go through anything necessary in order to complete the goals she sets out for herself, doing everything in her power to see things through to the end. Naomi is an extremely courageous girl. Very little ever seems to really startle or make her hesitate, making her a steadfast pillar of sorts when being forced to stare down rather insurmountable odds. In regards to her brother and other things she may care about, Naomi is a very dedicated individual. She is extremely willing to go above and beyond to do what she can for those she feels a bond with, putting their needs far above her own.

Weaknesses

Naomi tends to keep to herself in most situations, being extremely slow and hesitant to trust those around her. This causes her to come off as being very rough around the edges, to which many people would be right in their assumptions of this. She is quite impulsive, often acting without really thinking things through in an attempt to complete her goals as quickly as possible. The girl also tends to be quite physical, often resorting to physical conflict as opposed to merely talking things through. To top it all off, she is not afraid to break the law when needed to complete any objective she has. Naomi is unfortunately a bit of a chain smoker as well, rarely managing to go for more than hour or two before needing a cigarette.

Goals And Interests

Naomi's goal is to reunite with her younger brother of eight years old, Charlie. The two were separated when their mother passed away, with Charlie being placed into foster care due to Naomi's inability to provide adequately for him. While she took the job with Professor Roxanne in order start saving money, Naomi's true goal is to raise a strong Pokémon team and conquer the league in order to make a proper living for herself and in turn have Charlie returned to her side.

History

Naomi was born the oldest of two siblings, the other being her younger brother Charlie. The two were born and raised in Mauville City by their single mother, Claire, who spent most of her time working in the city as a waitress inside of its busy restaurant. Because of the fact that she was a single mother, Claire more often than not spent all of her time working. This caused the two children to be raised more or less on their own as a result. Naomi, being a good ten years older than her younger brother, was often left to fend for him. She was often the one who cooked for Charlie, gave him baths, and helped him with his homework when he became old enough to attend school. Due to how busy she was with raising Charlie, Naomi ended up dropping out of school herself shortly after she turned sixteen in order to be able to be more present in his life during the more crucial years of his life.

Despite the fact that the family never really had much money, they were quite happy to at least have each other. However, things weren't always sunshine and rainbows for them. Claire's job was not enough for the family to truly live comfortably and the woman would often have to do without in order to make sure that her children could have something to eat or have crucial things for life such as water or electricity. While Charlie was oblivious to this due to his young age, Naomi was more keen to the sacrifices her mother was making. This caused the teenager to spend her time while Charlie was in school and her mother at work out and about in Mauville, often doing less than honorable tasks in order to scrounge up enough money. Naomi didn't exactly leave a clean trail, however.

The girl's actions soon were soon caught in the wind by the Mauville authorities, causing Naomi to earn quite a reputation and a criminal record. This in turn caused a rift to form between Naomi and her mother. The two would often be at each other's throats, with Naomi stating that she was simply trying to help Charlie and her mother the best way she knew how. Eventually, the stress revolving around their lifestyle, combined with little to no rest, Naomi's actions, and Charlie's dependence on her caused Claire to reach a breaking point. The woman ended up taking her own life shortly after Charlie turned eight years old, leaving both the boy and his older sister completely alone. Naturally, Naomi didn't really have a way to take care of the boy on her own. He was put into protective custody and put into foster care as a result, much to his own and Naomi's protests. Naomi swore that she would do whatever it took to get Charlie, her only family, back.

Taken from Mirrors: A Kanto Story
Spoiler:
Maria Cosgrove
Pewter City
Chapter 1-1 | Anticipation









Current Party:


It was a bright and beautiful day in Pewter City. The Pidgey were chirping happily, their feathers full and ruffled from the abundant sunshine. A steady, gentle breeze blew through the air, causing the leaves to slowly rustle in the air. The laughter of children filled the air, the signs of an intense game of hide and seek being played throughout the city streets. All in all, one could say that Pewter City was displaying a most picturesque scene, one that would be seen on the covers of those old-timey magazine covers. It was heartwarming, calming and peaceful. Yet despite the serene imagery of the humble burg, not everyone who found themselves in the city were at peace.

"...Maybe I should just back out of this," a tall, blonde girl mused quietly as she slowly made her way down the cobblestone streets of Pewter. Her heart was racing with anticipation as she made her way towards the Pokémon Center of the town, an impromptu meeting place that had been arranged via a series of messages shot back and forth between herself and three others on their Pokégears. "I... I mean... We've never actually met in a physical sense... W-What if they think I'm weird or s-something and decide to just... leave me behind...?"

Maria Cosgrove heard a small and curious gurgle, snapping the girl from her thoughts. The Sinnohian glanced down, taking note of the Turtwig who was currently trotting by her side. He seemed to be quite interested as to what had been causing his trainer so much concern. While he really couldn't grasp all the finer details of just what Maria was saying, Sprout could definitely notice that something was bothering the girl. Maria smiled weakly at her Pokémon, kneeling down just long enough to scoop the grass-type up into her arms before resuming her walk.

"I'm sorry, Sprout... I g-guess I'm just a bit nervous," Maria explained, gently hugging the Turtwig to her chest as she resumed her walk towards the Pokémon Center. "I mean... We've talked through messages on our phones, but... I've never met them in real life before. Also... we're supposed to be going on a journey together... and I've hardly even been a trainer for about a week. It's just a lot to take in."

Maria's fears were honestly justified... at least, in her mind. Her trainer's card had only been issued to her about two weeks ago, and that was only because she managed to barely pass the required test. While her parents were absolutely thrilled with the occasion, going as far as to gift her with an actual Pokémon in response to it all. Maria wasn't too sure about how she felt about it, truth be told. The girl didn't have an aversion to Pokémon or anything of the sort. In fact, the blonde had always a bit of a soft spot for the creatures. Rather, it was more because of the fact that Maria didn't actually know what she wanted to do on a Pokémon journey.

Battling against the gym leaders for a chance to take on the Indigo League seemed a bit... overzealous for the girl. The fear of failing at her first gym battle was more than enough to scare her way from taking on such a challenge. The other option was taking on the task of trying to "catch 'em all". Of course, with their being over 700 Pokémon in the world... well, Maria wasn't sure if she had it in her to use so much time to follow a most likely impossible task. There was also the fact that maybe some of those Pokémon wouldn't want to be captured in the first place. Maria simply didn't have the heart to keep a Pokémon against their will. As for taking on the contests and attempting to earn Ribbons...? Well, the chances of getting Maria on stage in front of so many people would be virtually impossible. There would sooner be a flying Tepig as opposed to that notion.

Unfortunately, or perhaps... fortunately, Maria did not have much longer to fret over the situation. The familiar sight of the orange-tiled roof of the Pokémon Center soon came into sight, signaling her arrival at the designated meeting place. The very sight of the building caused Maria to slow her walk even further, down to the point that she essentially froze in her tracks. The moment she walked through those doors, the tall girl realized that there would not be any going back. At least, not without making some sort of awkward scene. As if looking for some sort of advice, Maria glanced down at the Turtwig in her arms. Sprout was staring up at his trainer, an eager look on his face as if demanding that she finally head inside.

"W-Well... If you're sure..." Maria whispered, taking a deep breath before making her way to and inside the Pokémon Center.

    i wanted to get this out yesterday but here it be

    let me know if anything needs to be worked on (i wasn't sure if you wanted a rp sample as the character we're playing for this so i went for the lazy route, would be happy to change it)

    Spoiler:
    Name: Willie Dong

    Age: 15

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Still a budding youth, Willie stands about 5’4, hopefully due for a considerable growth spurt. He is a skinny youth, with little to show in terms of muscle and size aside from the fitness earned through years of sports and activity. His hair is kept short and to a crop, the sides shaved with the crown of his hair left intact, sometimes swept from his forehead and other times in a mess, bangs strung about. Willie’s skin is a light tan color. While he has a small assortment of different clothing and outfits, it’s common to find Willie wearing a thin, light grey zip-up hoodie, the zip often undone, with a sleeveless white tank top underneath. He also commonly wears a pair of jean shorts, fitting snuggly above his knees, but a little loose at the waist – which if Willie found belts a little more appealing, could be no issue at all. For footwear, Willie likes a comfortable pair of sneakers, opting for a white pair with a red outline along the creases, and black ankle socks that are hardly noticeable from the brim of his sneakers. For practicality’s sake, Willie carries an orangish brown bag, fully aware that one can’t journey unprepared and empty handed.

    Goals and Interests: Willie has always had a bit of a childhood crush on Rustboro City’s previous gym leader and Hoenn’s current Pokémon Professor, Roxanne, even now. When he realized she saw something in him, even if not how he would have liked, it reignited the hope that had been kept kindling for the past year and a half. He had been shot down before, treated like a kid, but with this opportunity, Willie resolved within himself to change the way she saw him, for the better.

    Aside from teenage delusion and other shallow interests like wanting to be cool and "the man," Willie has found real, vested interest in legendary Pokémon and the myths and history surrounding them. He sees this task from Roxanne as an opportunity to also pursue this passion and learn about these Pokémon in ways that the books were incapable of teaching him.

    Strengths: He’s reflective and tends to learn things quickly. He can point out his mistakes easily and understand why and what happened, but it doesn’t mean he won’t repeat them. He has a good memory and doesn’t fall for the same tricks more than once. Willie’s athletic and has good fitness. He’s sociable and friendly. He has a good work ethic.

    Weaknesses: While Willie is friendly, he wants to help out a little too much and is too often willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. It’s not hard to take advantage of him, at least the first time around before he knows the type of person he’s dealing with. While he is good at reflecting on his past actions, that doesn’t mean Willie is so good at dealing with current and future ones. He at times escalates situations past necessity due to adrenaline, pride, other emotions, or just getting swept up in the moment. It takes time and distance for him to consider and agree that a different decision would have been better. He also isn't very good at planning things out, leaving many choices to a gut feeling. Willie also finds being alone dreadful, he hates not having another person nearby that he can talk to and even if another person is there, he’s not a big fan of silence either.

    Brief History: Willie’s childhood was far from remarkable, his father, a salaried office worker for a small corporation, and his mother, a Pokémon nurse, were the pillars of a stable homelife. They raised him as well as they could, with fair amounts of encouragement and discipline, although like many parents, never truly sure if the choices they made were right.

    From a young age, Willie’s parents made sure to keep their son engaged in activities and extracurriculars when possible. These not only lessened the burden of parenting for his mother and father, but it gave Willie many opportunities to interact with his peers, as well as find role models among the adults and younger teens that led these activities. In part thanks to these experiences, Willie has never been the shy type, nor has he ever felt lost in conviction in his so far short life.

    Before what would become the beginnings of this journey, Willie was just another active kid in his community. He played in recreational sports leagues, although terribly average in his play, went through the motions of school, primarily as an outlet to see his friends, and helped around the neighborhood when he could. Even so, to those who knew the young teen well, it was evident that the world of Pokémon had begun to look brighter in his eyes. Much to his parents’ amusement, they began to find books borrowed from the local library scattered throughout his room, almost a different one every few weeks or so, and almost always about Pokémon, especially tales concerning legendary ones. Even in his childish pursuit of Roxanne, the Pokémon Professor could not help but notice a sudden spike of interest towards her line of work that hadn’t been there previously.

    Chosen Starter and Nickname: Bulbasaur; Lott


    Ability - Overgrow // Moves - Giga Drain, Tackle, Leech Seed, Growl

    Other: maybe later

    RP Sample: a recent post

    Blaire Summerfield

    "Luck is for the stupid and the lazy."


    16 // Destiny // Female // 5'5" // Slender

    Goals and Interests

    Blaire is certain that it's her calling to become the Hoenn champion. From a young age, she had a natural aptitude to befriending and battling with pokemon. At first, she thought she was lucky to experience a chance encounter with the long reigning regional champion May, that is, until that interaction inspired the beginning of her current winning streak as trainer. It couldnt have been luck. It was her destiny. It still is. She's destined to be the one that finally defeats May after so long.

    Strengths


    + Dilligent
    They say all work and no play, makes Blaire a dull girl. No, they really do say that. The girl has a reputation for being a strict no nonsense, studious worker with an industrious spirit. She refuses to make time for fun and games. Though, the reputation hardly seems to faze her. Blaire would much rather be dull than be a failure. She's unrelenting in chasing her goals, which more often than not, leads to her success.

    + Well Organised
    Alongside her conscientious attitude towards life, Blaire's intelligent and meticulous organisation has always been a key factor in her achievements. 'Trusting her gut' is just about the least Blaire thing she could ever do, since before she does anything, the research would have already been done, thoroughly. She risks very little and leaves nothing to chance in any endeavour she approaches. No doubt her journey will have been started with 20+ pokeballs, enough money to buy her own home and a reservation at just about every hotel in every town and city in Hoenn.

    + Resolute
    In order to be as committed to hard work as she is, Blaire has to be as stubborn as a mudbray. A million times and more. It's one of her greatest strengths though. Blaire's faith in her goals is unwaveringly absolute. She's certain it's her destiny to defeat May, and while many have told her she's crazy, she keeps going. If her word goes into a cause, you can be sure she'll be steadfast in a her presence and dedication to the completion of whatever it is she embarks on.

    + Vigilant
    Blaire has an eye for detail. She's quick to notice the faintest loose hair, the tiniest of gestures and the most sporadic of patterns. It helps her a lot in social interactions. She's adept at reading body language. More importantly to her though, it helps her in battle. Her knack for recognising her opponents mannerisms and idiosyncrasies has allowed her to develop an acute sense of strategy in formulating counter measures.

    Weaknesses


    - Self-Righteous
    Blaire is convinced of her destiny. Anyone whose aspirations or goals intercept the vision she has for herself is simply a blind, self destructive fool who is in for a rude enlightenment. She has no time for time wasters, deadeats, cheaters or even the enablers that allow all these people to get away with their mediocrity. As someone who works hard, she will never allow herself to even be seen as equal to those guilty of disingenuous habits and behaviour.

    - Discourteous
    While her impatience can often be forgiven, it's her acts of venomous malice that people often take issue with. Growing up very well off, Blaire is very familiar with a life of luxury; she been waited on and pampered her entire life. She expects a similar standard of reverence in any regular interaction. Those that dont show her that level admiration are often dismissed as fools or imbeciles and treated as such. Blaire is not above spiteful bullying, as many victims have found out the hard way.

    - OCD
    Surely it cant be too much to ask to want things to be clean. Well...Blaire is very particular about her definition of 'clean'. She means, absolutely spotless. Camping? Not in a million years unless her tent is disinfected and isolated from any disgusting bug type pokemon in the vicinity. While not crippling chronic, a simple misplaced item in her bag or loose thread on her jacket can drive Blaire absolutely crazy. You can be certain she'll be tidying up before she'll stay anywhere.

    - Tunnel Vision
    Sure, she's vigilant, but if nothing is instantly eye catching or useful about whatever she's looking at, Blaire will be quick to dismiss it. She's particularly uncreative as she never feels the needs the need to be. She rarely thinks outside the box or looks beyond the surface. Does that make her shallow? Probably, but that's not something she really concerns herself with. She doesnt have time to look back, and it's often at her own detriment more than anyone elses.

    Background

    Blaire has never considered herself 'just an ordinary girl', and in the eyes of many, she never was. She was pampered by her adoring parents, prioritised by anyone who worked under them and put on a pedestal by both her friends and envious enemies. Her parents always expected that she's take after Lisia, the local contest hero, and become an extraordinaire. That was never the life for Blaire. She was graceful, elegant, sure, but she never considered herself ostentatious or glamorous. The flamboyance of a contest never appealed to her. She was pragmatic, refined and efficient. She had no time for such nonsense.

    Instead, she took to battling. She believed she was exceptional at it. She took on local trainers, schooling everyone that wasnt already on their way to being elite. Her parents supported it in every way they could. The would always get ahold of rare foreign pokemon that others could only dream of. She doesnt know how, and she doesnt care.

    She was never the best battler though. She was very good, but her record was patchy at best. After her first few years, she began to stagnate in her progress. Things got so bad, she even started to go on something of a losing streak.

    Home life wasnt perfect at that time. Her father's boating company started taking hits. Her mother was becoming more and more distant. Blaire just couldnt piece it all together. Things werent going her way anymore, and she couldnt figure out why.

    One day, in the midst of her father's sabotage issues, she found herself attacked by a man in a suit. While her Mawile did it's absolute best to protect her, it was quickly dispatched by the senior trainer and his Krookodile. Before he could kidnap her though, the man was intercepted, by none other than the Hoenn region champion, May.

    Blaire was inspired, and from that moment, she aspired to reach the level of the champion. One further than that, she aspires to defeat the champion herself.

      Name: Wilfred Stanford

      Age: 18

      Gender: Male

      Appearance:
      Spoiler:

      https://imgur.com/a/0GDsXs3 in case pic doesn't work


      At 5' 10" and 280 lbs., Wilfred is a big guy. He may look chubby, but there's muscle underneath that padding, especially in the arms. He has light brown skin, dark brown hair, and eyes a shade of brown somewhere between the two. He has a big head, a pleasant smile, and an overall friendly look to him. He has a small, square pair of glasses, dresses in loose, comfortable clothes, and is usually wearing a gray hoodie and his Great Ball-patterned headphones.

      Goals and Interests: Growing up on a farm, Wilfred always wanted to work with food, ideally as a baker, but he'd love any job that let him cook. He's always on the lookout for new foods to try or new recipes to make. He also enjoys listening to music, but he's not a good singer and is too shy to ever do anything musical, except maybe karaoke. Another hobby is magic, but he only knows a few card tricks right now.

      Strengths: Wilfred is easygoing and generally laid-back, not getting stressed or bothered easily. He likes to make others happy, and is always willing to lend a hand to help, an ear to listen, or a shoulder to lean on. He makes friends easily, and never leaves his friends hanging.

      Weaknesses: Wilfred generally doesn't like to fight, so he's usually not great at Pokemon tournaments. But even he has his limits, and loses his temper when people are cruel, or when they endanger themselves or others. He knows a hard truth is better than an easy lie, so he doesn't sugarcoat anything that he thinks people need to hear. Given his usual demeanor, it's not always easy for him to get serious, and some only see him as an attention-seeker, and on some level they're right.

      Brief History: Wilfred grew up on a farm, specifically a Berry farm on Route 123. The Berry Master had four grandchildren, but only his oldest, Wilfred's mother, stayed to work the family business, while the other three opened a flower shop. Farm life was difficult for young Wilfred. It was hard work, with long hours and no time for fun, but he got to be with family who cared, and after a long day, there was good food and warm atmosphere to relax in. Even at a young age, he knew he wasn't going to be a farmer, so when he was ten, he decided to head out to Lilycove City, to live with an uncle.

      Being a port city, Lilycove was full of new sights and smells, with something new coming in every week. It was here that he learned of his love for food, and he started taking classes, eventually getting an apprenticeship at the Bountiful Bounsweet Sweets Shop. With the Contest Hall nearby, he learned there was more to Pokemon than just helping with work (or battling), but he has no plans of being a professional Contestant. He just enjoys making treats such as Pokeblocks, Poffins, and Pokepuffs. Having completed his apprenticeship, he wants to travel the country, seeing what new flavors (and new Pokemon) he can find along the way. After all, he may not plan to be a professional Pokemon Trainer, but it is still the national pastime.

      Chosen Starter and Nickname: Roxbury the Alolan Geodude
      Nature: Relaxed, Ability: Sturdy
      Moves: Tackle, Rock Throw, Spark, Counter

      Other: While he hasn't planned his journey very much, Wilfred would love to catch a Snorlax and a Castform, as they are two of his favorites.

      RP Sample: From the previous Airborne (Which I had completely forgotten I was in. Haha... sorry.)

      sorry for the double post, but this is Alyssa, the playable npc. she is also a beginning trainer, starting her journey alongside all of your characters. she's going to be playing a role in the overarching plot of the rp and i will occasionally posting as her, but she's not my character in the regular sense. all that being said, she will generally function as a rival for all of your chars. feel free to use her in posts and such unless she's involved w one of the missions in an area or another player is using her at the same time.

      Name: Alyssa Hawkins
      Age: 18
      Gender: Female

      Appearance: Standing at five-foot-ten, Alyssa is well above the average height of other young women. This paired with her long slender figure gives her the body type typical of a model. She may look delicate, but hours spent working out has provided her a deceptive strength that many wouldn't suspect. Her pale, unblemished skin gives her pearly white smile an extra glow that has entranced many of her peers. While she's a natural blonde, she recently decided to dye her shoulder-length hair black, but still leaving a streak of her original color behind in her hair.

      As is common with someone who loves style, there is a wide assortment of clothing that makes up the young woman's wardrobe. It ranges from sporty to more chic, but her favorite outfit consists of light wash overalls, worn over a longsleeve white shirt, finished off with some hightop white sneakers. To her it expresses a recent modern twist on an old fashioned article of clothing, which she finds to be quite a statement.

      Personality: Charismatic and kind, Alyssa seems to be without flaw to most people that meet her. Always able to strike up a conversation with even the most awkward of people, she's been a social butterfly since the day of her birth. And it's not as if she approaches interactions with any ulterior motives. She's just a kindhearted and compassionate individual, invariably considerate of others. Cool and collected, she's seemingly always calm and in control, and when conflicts arise she almost always plays the role of peacemaker. The young woman just has a calming presence about her that makes those around her feel at ease. On top of all this she's incredibly intelligent and athletic, making her seem nothing short of perfect.

      Other: Alyssa didn't mention much about her past to Professor Roxanne, but it would be safe to assume that she's a native of the Hoenn Region.

            Marcus Wells

            17 // The Farmer's Kid // Male


            Appearance: Appearance: Marcus is a little pale with blonde hair he often just leaves shaggy. A little on the small side, but with a toned build from his work on his parent's farm although not enough to usually notice under his clothing. His face hasn't really matured the way he wanted, but he doesn't really pay enough attention to his features to worry about it too much.

            His fashion sense is much more practicality over style, preferring normal pants and easy to maneuver clothing on days off. Much of his closet is more suited for manual labor than city life, and a lot of it tends to fall on the extraordinarily plain side, with a few specific pieces downright work-uniform like. His work at home has also lead to a preference for thin, long-sleeved/legged clothing over short anything, even when he's not getting dirty anymore.


            Goals and Interests: Being a trainer and the grand life of excitement isn't what Marcus wants. It honestly sounds like too much trouble and fuss to try an maintain competitiveness and celebrity status when a stronger trainer is just around the corner to dethrone you.

            No, ranching is a much better use of time. He can combine his love of raising pokemon with his desire for a quiet life. The problem is that land is expensive, and he's not in any position to buy a lot of it at the moment. Now trainers, they make quite a bit of money when they're good. This journey is all about making enough money to buy his ranch and gain a little intensive training in Pokemon raising in the mean time.

            Strengths:

            - Hardworking: Marcus is no stranger to hard work; he grew up on a farm after all.

            - Level Headed: It takes quite a bit to affect him, insults and goading him doesn't really work. He mostly prefers to go with the flow of what's happening. Raising a fuss won't help anything.

            - Caring: When it comes to raising pokemon, he knows a fair deal. His parent's farm wasn't particularly focused on Pokemon, but there was enough to teach him a lot. This can be extended to his friends, humans are even easier to read than Pokemon. He doesn't usually have the answers, but he can at least tell you aren't feeling your best.

            - Practical: Why spend more for less? Outside of economics, he can usually find a purpose for most things he has, getting the most mileage out of his items. In a battle this transfer over to a preference for reliability over pizazz. Those fancy moves don't mean much when you can't even hit anyone.

            Weaknesses:

            - A Lover of All Things Cute: Okay... his taste in Pokemon isn't the most manly out there. Heck, he has trouble saying no to catching the smallest, weakest Pokemon out there just because it's adorable. Round and bouncy are his weakness, and he even has a hard time fighting against something that fits in that category.

            - Underdeveloped Battle Sense: He's a farmer, not a fighter. He may not have been paying attention to all the discussion at strategy since he wouldn't need it in a few years time anyways. He'll probably fall for the oldest trick in the book, since that book is currently gathering dust on his shelf.

            - Bad With People: Okay, so he can read them pretty well, that doesn't make him a people person. He can't stand crowds, and prefers to just attach himself to a group that looks like they know what they're doing. His ability to solve interpersonal problems is also pretty bad. You don't solve a lot of problems with talking on the farm.

            - An Entirely Different Goal: He can give a Ratata's behind about actually being an ace trainer. He's in it to further other goals. He's a little slow with actually completing trainer goals.

            Brief History:

            Marcus was born in Johto, just north of Olivine City. His parents owned a farm just north of the port town, and most of his early childhood was spent there. He's one of the youngest kids of a large family (the sixth of seven kids) and much of his siblings have left for their own lives. He's only the second son, and his older brother had left the house when he was still young, leaving him in a house with many sisters. His time in the house lead to an odd situation where he picked up a lot of the slack being one of the only men on the farm but was also doted on by some of his older sisters, although he did tend to argue with the two closest in age to him. His time on the farm also lead him to lead a pretty minimalist lifestyle, with his room pretty plain and only buying what he needed, with the occasional splurge for recreation.

            A few years ago he, after letting his parents know of his intention, left the farm for trainer school. He felt it would be the best way to advance his skills in Pokemon handling with his family being non-trainers themselves. One of his older sister already had interest in taking over the farm anyways. He left for the most prestigious school he could reasonably attend, all the way in Hoenn. Although Hoenn is too hot and crowded, he has learned a ton just being around Pokemon he would never find in Johto. Despite his rather poor Battling scores, he graduated and is ready to finally set forth and pursue his dream.

              Name
              Vincent Morrigan
              Age
              17
              Gender
              Male
              Appearance
              Let’s work from top to bottom. Vincent always keeps his messy black hair under a tan flat cap, which he’s known to pull down over his dark green eyes when embarrassed. He has a rather pale complection from years of working inside. His outfit usually consists of a purple button-up shirt with the sleeves often rolled up, black slacks, and a black belt to match his black shoes. He slightly tall for his age and is also quite thin.
              Goals and Interests
              Throughout his childhood, Vincent developed quite the interest in mechanics and computers. In his free time, he can be seen tinkering with some parts. He delights in taking apart and improving small devices like phones and clocks, with varying degrees of success. This fascination lead to Vincent being quite familiar with The Devon Corporation. Their name was on almost everything he worked on. This fascination with Devon and the things that they make made Vincent aspire to someday work for Devon, developing new technologies for the benefit of the Hoenn Region.
              Strengths
              Intelligence-Vincent, spending most of his time tinkering or reading, is rather intelligent. He knows much about mechanics, geography, and even Pokémon.
              Caution-Perhaps as a side-effect of his fear, Vincent always makes absolutely sure something is safe before using it. This attitude also has him bring along tools and supplies he might not obviously need.
              Kindness-Vincent was raised as a gentleman, so he always keeps his manners in mind. He treats everyone with kindness and respect, sometimes to a fault.
              Weaknesses
              Fear-Vincent is a massive coward. Ever since a young age, his fear of Pokémon has made him something of a black sheep among his peers.
              Strength-Vincent’s always been more focused with academic pursuits. While his work does sometimes call for physicality, his strength leaves much to be desired.
              Worrier-As a combination of his cautious attitude and general fear of anything not made of chocolate, Vincent tends to worry too much about the small things.
              History
              Vincent was born in Lilycove City to Daniel and Sarah Morrigan. Vincent’s father worked in the department store, but as a hobby, his father fixed things. Nothing much, just little things throughout the house. All throughout his childhood, Vincent always loved sitting next to his father and watching him work. To Vincent, it wasn’t just wires and cogs being put together, but instead it was more like putting together a puzzle. All of the pieces were strewn about the desk and his father would put them in their place. As he grew older, Vincent started taking things apart around the house and, with varying degrees of success, putting them back together. This passion evolved as Vincent grew, until he became something of a handy man in Lilycove.

              Another favorite hobby of Little Vincent was reading. He would read anything he could get his hands on. He loved the feeling of being absorbed into another person’s world. It was while browsing through Wigglesworth’s Guide To Pokémon that he learned about Pokémon such as Mimikyu and Parasect. Prior to this, he knew little about Pokémon, so Vincent never looked at Pokémon the same way again. Knowledge of Pokémon that were capable of such terrible things made him look at new Pokémon in a different light. Whenever he sees a Pokémon, he can’t help but get anxious. What doesn’t help is that his sister, Jean, is a rather gifted Pokémon Trainer, so she’s usually coming back home to show off some of her rarer, more powerful, Pokémon.

              And thus, Vincent grew up apart from the crowd, content to develop his own skills, even if they wouldn’t give him the kind of fame that comes with being a Pokémon Trainer. That’s what he thought, at least, until he received a letter from Professor Roxanne asking him to help her with her research. Vincent leapt at the opportunity, not quite knowing what the research would entail.

              From Strange’s Trial of Olympus
              Spoiler:

              Amelia stood and walked over to the door and out into the hall. She could see another door labeled "Principle's Office." She turned the doorknob and entered to find three elderly women sitting around a single desk. One of them sat in the center of the desk, while the others sat on either side of her. They all looked ancient, but Amelia felt... scared. Like she should show respect, or else. Nervously, she crossed to the seat in front of the three women and sat down. The woman in the middle spoke up first.

              "Now, let's see here. Your full name is Amelia Ornstein, is it not?" She said, half questioning, half commanding.

              "Yes ma'am, it is." Amelia replied without hesitation. She'd felt somehow compelled to answer truthfully.

              This time the woman to Amelia's right spoke. "And you lived in Canada before coming to this country?"

              "Yes ma'am, Quebec, more specifically."

              All three women seemed interested in this. The middle woman leaned over to the one on the right and started whispering. The one on the left simply stared of into space with a blank look on her face. It was then that Amelia noticed her eyes. They were grey and foggy, the woman was clearly blind. Casting a glance to the other two, Amelia could see that the woman on her right was also blind. Only the woman directly in front of her seemed to have her sight. Just as she noticed this, the woman on the right spoke to her.

              "What about your father? Has your mother ever spoke of him?" The question surprised Amelia. She had never really been asked to talk about him.

              "Um, No, not really. My father left when I was really young. I never knew him." Contrary to before, none of them seemed interested in this fact. They simply continued to the next question.

              "Now, what about your... incident." Amelia looked down. She knew that this question was unavoidable. "We've heard about the circumstances, but why don't you tell us your version.

              Amelia sighed and began to go through it all again. The teacher, the explosion, the police. As she finished. The women just nodded and once she was done, they whispered to each other and nodded. Amelia managed to hear a few of their discussion. "...Shouldn't have kept her that close..." "...No wonder she had an incident that young..." "...Powers are already out of control..."

              After a short time, they turned to Amelia and sent her back to the classroom. Walking back to the hallway. On her way back to the classroom, Amelia thought about what she heard. Out of control? What 'powers' were they talking about? The questions ringed in Amelia's mind, but she already knew the answer to the latter. She stopped and pulled out the leaf she was playing with earlier. Did these ladies know something about her abilities? Amelia intended to figure it out, but for the time being, she re-pocketed the leaf and returned to class.

                Haroun Hadid


                19 // The Model // F


                Physical Appearance

                It's not hard to imagine why Haroun has found her own success as a model these past couple of years. She's 5'10 and radiates elegant and poise, all slim limbs and grace. She's got wavy purple hair often pinned towards one half of the face (to better show off her flashy earrings, you see) that takes her longer to maintain than she'd like to admit contrasted against dark skin, splash of freckles on her nose, and deep blue eyes. Haroun is a stunner and doesn't she know it, she spends enough time every morning making sure she remains that stunner with makeup and hair products a plenty. She believes you have to take of your appearance, it's your calling card after all.

                Fashion-wise, Haroun leans towards the form-fitting but simplistic. She often wears just a black top (with shoulder cut-outs for that interesting sillhouette effect) and white skinny jeans. Normally she would wear heals to go along with it but for the journey she's opted for stylish but practical black sneakers and large black purse. Her hair brings all the colour she needs, she know the white and black combo offsets the colour with timeless classyness, Haroun has got fashion down to an artform, is it any wonder she's something of a trendsetter in Rustboro and surroundings?



                Goals and Interests

                Haroun is here mostly because it's a good career move for her. Trainers and coordinators get a lot of press and Haroun isn't happy until she's known throughout Hoenn. So her goal is to do well and network and impress so that her career is once again on the rise. She's most interested in coordination, if only because the elegence speaks to her, but she honestly doesn't know all that much about any kind of Pokemon keeping or battling or anything at all. She's going to have a lot to learn about anything Pokemon.

                Strengths

                Clever - Haroun is a clever girl. She learns fast, that's something she has going for her at least, on this crazy journey, and boy will she need it. Haroun is very good at thinking outside the box, which is a good thing since in this case she has very little idea of what that box actually entails. Still, don't underestimate creativity to compensate for a lack of knowledge.

                Adaptable - Haroun flows like water, be it very fashionable water. She's good at adapting to whatever situation she finds herself in. She takes great pride in never losing sight of herself while she adapts. Sure, she'll change heels for trainers, but that doesn't mean she has to give up her fashionability at the same time. Of course, she might take a little too much pride in her adaptability, and she will surely be tested this journey.

                Patient - Look, you don't spend hours waiting for the photographer to be ready or try out poses until the photographer deeps it perfect without building up a patient streak. Things don't need to come immediately for Haroun, she can wait, she can keep trying and trying as long as there's a chance for success she'll hold on. The spoils go to those who wait.

                Brave and strong sense of justice- Nobody has ever called Haroun Hadid meek of any sort. She has confidence for days and isn't afraid to put herself out there both in social situations and adventure situations. She always stands up for what she believes is right too. Haroun can't stand injustice and will broadcast that to everyone in a heartbeat. She believes in being a decent human being and expects the same from the others around her, and woe if she thinks she sees someone taking advantage of the weak.

                Weaknesses


                Judgy and cold - Haroun will not put up with your bullmuk, or anything she perceives as such. She's got a bit of a temper on her, a cold one. She won't yell easily, but oooh I hope you're ready to get death glares and the iciest of responses. Haroun isn't afraid to call out your muk, but she's also rather quick to judge that muk. She formulates opinions of people very quickly, something that started off mostly because she saw a lot of people for only short spurts of time. She's learned to quickly put someone in a box and sometimes even dismiss them. This one's a country bumpkin, that one's an impulsive child, nevermind the fact that there's more to them than that.

                Stubbornly vein - While she's generally adaptable, Haroun clings to some aspects of her life with a strong ferocity. Her looks are the main thing. She believes first impressions are very important, as is the way you present herself, and she will always take her own of beautifying herself every morning even if it means balancing her mirror on a treetrunk and trying to get her eyeliner wings to be perfect regardless.

                Proud and competitive - Haroun doesn't like to be outplayed, it plays into her stubborn pride. She's a good loser on her own terms, but when she feels like she's been challenged she has to compete, she just has to. Similarly her pride also causes her to feel like she should do things that are out of her comfort zone. She's doing this trainer thing now which is totally left field for her but she's doing it and so she has to excell. She can't show weakness, never show weakness. Haroun Hadid has to be poised and always show herself in a good light, she can't accept anything else. And how else does she becomes better than pushing herself constantly forward, constantly further, never giving herself a break?

                Self-centered - For most of her life, Haroun has taken care of herself. She's always been busy and has had trouble formulating really meaningful friendships because she'd flit from event to photoshoot. She has some trouble reaching out and looking outside of her own little bubble. It's hard for her to really imagine what someone else's completely unrelated life might be like.





                Brief Background

                Haroun was always a pretty child, with her colourful hair and skin and her bright little eyes people would often remark how eyecatching she was even when she was missing teeth and and had been rolling in the mud of the garden. She grew up with a single mother who worked as a secretary at the Devon Corporation. She was visiting her mother when one of the execs noticed her and wondered if she didn't want to do some modelling for their new children's line of Pokemon accessories. Her mom could use the money and Haroun was thrilled at the attention and the rest is history.

                So her modelling career took off. She modelled more for Devon over the years and was often found around the corporation's headquarters (plus it helped that she used to have a massive crush on Steven. She can never look him in the eye again). From there on she branched out into clothes modelling for other stores and then to fashion magazines and became something of a local celebrity and fashionista, mostly amongst teens and young adults.

                She watched many of her friends and peers trickle off one by one to start their customary Pokemon journeys without much interest. She had her own career here, why would she care about going off on some journey? She'd never really felt much for Pokemon aside from the sweets pets that lounged around here and there. She'd pet the local Skitties or feed the Pidgeys, sure, but that whole diehard Pokemon fan or trainer life wasn't really for her. Then she saw friends come back from their joureys with full teams raving about life changing experiences and she just rolled her eyes and smiled and took off to her next schedule. She had her life together and her career was on the rise, why should she care?

                But doubts were sown and sprouted. Was the whole Pokemon journey really all that? She had to admit that it would probably be a good career move if she was successful, most of the true celebrities were either trainers or coordinators, the best of the best. Her agents was pushing her too, knowing that if she did make it far her career was all but set! No more celebrities in Rustboro and surroundings only, but a true known face across Hoenn! So fine, she'd do this whole Pokemon thing, she guessed. She wasn't quite sure how, she'd avoided the trainer school like the plague her entire life, but it couldn't be all that hard right? Right?

                Rosa Summers





                Name: Rosa (Rose) Summers

                Age: Seventeen

                Gender: Female

                Hometown: Goldenrod City

                Appearance:

                At the short height of 5’3, Rose is often mistaken for being younger than she is. Traveling makes for a fairly lean body with toned legs due to so much walking. Her natural hair color is a mild blue that reaches slightly past her shoulder blades, along with several bleached-white streaks around her face. Her eyes are upturned and brown, while her skin is lightly tanned from years of outdoor exploration. Considering Hoenn is a tropical region, Rose will be wearing light clothes throughout the journey: Shorts, tank tops, light running shoes, and a thin jacket, just in case (Hoenn might be tropical, but it isn’t the sun, and it’s good to be prepared). Like many female trainers from Johto, Rose wears a Pokegear around her neck, as well as two small, rosebud shaped earrings in each ear.


                Goals, Interests, Strengths and Weaknesses: Rose has a one track mind, and that one track is Pokémon. She is eager to experience everything the Pokémon world has to offer, and interact with as many Pokémon as possible. She favors Pokémon that sacrifice bulk for speed, and using that speed to set up a quick sweep. She tries to teach her Pokémon a variety of moves in hopes of always having one super effective move against her opponents. Rose enjoys adventure and will step into unknown situations without hesitation in hopes of encountering one, that is, until something goes wrong. Her confidence can be shattered with extreme ease. From gung-ho to devastated so quickly can make her a bit difficult to understand, as there is rarely middle ground. Rose is generally friendly (more so to people with Pokémon), and though not the most talkative, she truly enjoys to be in the company of others, especially while traveling.



                Brief History: The man and woman that Rose refers to as her parents are actually her aunt and uncle. Her actual parents were Pokémon mythologists whom went missing thirteen years ago, supposedly on the trail of an ancient Sinnoh Pokémon (whether they are deceased or merely missing is a subject Rose cares not to theorize over). While she has no real memories of her birth parents, their absence left a young Rose with a small sense of loneliness, as well as a feeling of guilt. Why did she yearn for parents she could not remember, when her foster family treated her so well?
                Both Rose and her cousin were sent to the Pokémon Trainer School in Goldenrod City, where Rose’s interest in Pokémon battles developed into a deep and fiery passion that could not be extinguished. It was quick to see that all this young girl wanted in life was to be a Pokémon trainer, and to travel the world in search of Pokémon to catch and trainers to battle. On the day of her graduation, Rose’ guardians presented her with two gifts: A fire Pokémon (befitting her surname) and a ticket for the Goldenrod train station, which she could use to travel to Kanto, and from the port in Vermillion City, begin a journey in any region she chose.

                Chosen Starter and Nickname:

                Cyndaquil (Keaton) Ability: Flashfire

                Jefferey Miles



                Age: 17

                Gender: Male

                Appearance: Jeff looks like your typical book worm in a way: pale and thin. However, despite his nonathletic build he has the broad shoulders of a man far beyond his physical capabilities and girth. He is almost exactly 6 feet with once-upon-a-time golden hair that is now dirty blond from all the time he spent inside reading and sharp green eyes. He has a very average nose, perfect teeth, very few freckles dusting either cheek. All-in-all he's handsome in a way that's a little too boyish for his own liking

                Jeff isn't too picky as far as regular clothes go, whatever's comfortable, but his favorite clothes are a pair of dark grey cargo jeans, a thick dark green hoodie over a white T-shirt with a large paw print on it. The jacket is usually unzipped. He also likes to wear a silver necklace with a small platinum rose that usually rests just under his shirt collar.

                Personality: Jeff is a very nice person, always willing to see the best in people and not being very judgmental as long as the person in question wasn't bothering anyone but can be quite harsh when he gets defensive of someone else. He has a very good vocabulary that is mostly self taught from all the reading and can be a skilled and eloquent speaker when he wants to but is easily flustered by the right situations. Jeff tries to avoid situations where he would have any authority over other people because he’s not very good at ‘tough love’.

                Above all else Jeff loves pokemon, he sees them as the creatures that run the world much more than people and abhors any sort of mistreatment directed at one. The only reason he approves of pokemon battles is because most of the time they can be fun for the pokemon and they fight in the wild anyways. Jeff is naturally playfully sarcastic and it shows. He doesn't like to cause problems and as a result is much more civil around strangers. His snarky attitude becomes more prevalent the more familiar he is with someone. Partly as a result of his stories and partly just from his nature Jeff puts an almost zealous value on friendship and has very grandiose, sometimes naive ideas about friendship and romance.

                Jeff absolutely LOVES eating and cooking, especially when it comes to cheese and has very sensitive taste buds and a strong nose. The only reason the boy is because he's got such a high metabolism.Jeff likes to cook for other people, having many a cheesy dish waiting to greet his parents when they get home from work. He loves being cooked for just as much and is easily swayed by a good meal.

                Background: Jeff has had a fairly boring life if you don’t count the adventures he’s had in his own mind as he read books and watched movies. He had the bad luck of having parents who wanted a safe life for their child, the most dangerous thing they were willing to let him do was play sports...and not even football. To make matters worse Jeff wasn't interested in sports so short of when he was a little kid just running around with the other kids he didn't have a lot to do. Eventually Jeff stopped insisting books were for 'old people' and began to read, both saving his sanity and feeding his imagination. His parents may not have wanted him to have a pokemon but reading about them was different, so he read all sorts of pokemon books ranging from facts to fantasies to true stories about the most influential trainers shaping the world.

                When Jeff hit 10 money started getting tight for his family so his mom had to forego staying at home in favor of being able to afford to keep it. To help out he took advantage of his cooking talents to have fresh food usually waiting for his parents when they got home. The first truly eventful thing to happen in Jeff's life all started when he asked his dad one day after getting home from work how the dinner he’d prepared was, prompting his father to ask if he was sure he hadn't gotten hungry and eaten it himself.

                The strange phenomena of vanishing food continued in the Miles household until the day Jeff heard the plate he had put his mother's dinner on clatter to the ground. By the time he made it into the kitchen there was just an empty plate with a bite taken out of it next to a trail of condiments on the floor leading out to the garage his parents never closed the door of, making it obvious what the culprit was: a hungry pokemon. The next day Jeff rigged up a pretty sloppy snare, figuring he was wasting his time and the pokemon wouldn't keep stealing from people who knew it was coming, little did he know how impossible it was for the 'criminal' to resist its hunger. About an hour before his mother was due home that day Jeff heard a loud crash and ran into the kitchen staring up at where he knew the food thief would be if his trap worked. The snare had worked...but it had also snapped at the weight of the culprit, and when Jeff looked down what he saw surprise him. There on his kitchen floor, face flat, was what appeared to be a small, trashcan-reminiscent creature that lifted it's head to reveal a round face and uttered one single sound, a bright happy "Munch!" Before it's eyes focused on Jeff's necklace and it snapped it up like a fish, it took 7 minutes of wrestling to get the ornament from the pokemon, but Jeff didn’t bother being angry because he was sure the Munchlax would just get away like last time, it wasn't nearly as slow as one would expect.

                Jeff didn't know how to deal with the little Munchlax...it was too clueless not to come back if he sent it away and he couldn't stand the thought of hurting a pokemon so obviously the most logical conclusion was to keep it and continue to feed it. Predictably Jeff's parents did not share his sentiment, but he was done being agreeable, he hadn't complained about not being allowed to become a trainer for a long time but he'd be damned if they wouldn't even let him have a pokemon as a pet. Life actually went back to being normal and uneventful for a while, at least until Jeff's seventeenth birthday, when he declared he was going on a journey whether his parents liked it or not, even if he had to get a job just to buy a pokeball for Romanov. This time Jeff's parents didn't argue, not only because they felt he was old enough to take care of himself, but also because they were all too happy to get the greedy sentient garbage disposal unit out of their house. As Jeff got farther away from his childhood home and the waving silhouettes of his parents faded away he realized something...he had no idea where to start. Luckily a kindly old neighbor noticed Jeff had his backpack on and asked if he was on his way to see the 'fancy professor lady' who was presently visiting Mauville. Not wanting to look like as much of an idiot as he felt Jeff quickly said that was exactly what he was off to do, and continued walking, whistling a jovial tune to himself the rest of way and lovingly patting the new pokeball on his belt.

                =>POKÉMON
                Starter Pokémon: Romanov the very Munchlax that burgled Jeff’s lovingly cooked meals when he was younger. Romanov is not lazy like most 'Laxes', although he's just as hungry. In fact, Romanov loves running around and interacting with other creatures, he mostly only sleeps when Jeff does. Romanov is intelligent deep down, but he's oblivious and his attention wanders easily. Romanov got his name from how much he reminded Jeff of bears rooting through people's homes for food in lands with no pokemon, and from which of the mythical countries could train bears to be lifelong friends and guardians just like pokemon.
                Moves: Zen Headbutt, Chip Away, Recycle, Lick
                Abilities: Pick Up

                WANTED: Beware the Holy... Con-Artist?
                Name: Serene Linge ♊
                Age: 19
                Gender: Female
                Birth town: Lavender

                Appearance
                : Serene is about 5'8, weighing about 110 pounds, probably from her love of sweets, but it doesn't really bother her too much. Not until someone else mentions it anyway. She has light skin, along with five slim fingers with each hand, and five slim toes in each foot. Her nose is not really that bulby, her ears are not that big, and her complemented blue eyes are not really that wide or skinny. All in all, her classic features are really not all that interesting. Serene's hair is dyed light-blue, tied as a long pig tail, reaching her mid-back. Rarely when it's not in a pig-tail, her hair sticks out all the way to her shoulders.

                Her outfit resembles a church priest's outfit, naturally represents her participation at her local holy ground. On her upper body, she wears a white cotton sweater with black sleeves, with a white dress over that sweater, that has grey and black lace, all complete with a black bow. On her lower body, she wears a white, cotton-laced dress with black lining. On her lower body, she has a long white skirt that reaches to near the top of her foot. For foot wear, she wears black socks, and white heel-boots with black laces. Finally, for jewelry, she wears a ruby pearl necklace, with a diamond jewel, hanging near her bow-tie.

                Strengths
                : Serene is pretty much a polite young-lady with a soft-hearted way of speaking. She's pretty caring, gentle, and friendly around the people she meets. She shows great compassion in creating and maintaining a kind relationship with anyone she meets, and has yet to fail in doing so. Almost always being shown with a smile on her face. Whenever a friend is in need, she is always open to help in any way she can no matter the situation. In general, she is always concerned for the well being of others. She also dislikes seeing others unhappy, and is always up to cheering the individual up. People around Serene acknowledge all of these characteristics, and she is popular among the people in the church she works in. She is even able to befriend individuals who are often viewed upon as annoying or disliked among many.

                Weaknesses: However, as you get to know Serene better, despite her light-hearted attitude, sometimes Serene is rather enigmatic. She is also sarcastic and witty, unintentionally even to the point of cruelty. Serene has a snide, sarcastic response to even the most serious subjects, and loves to tease the companions she befriended. However, Serene's sarcastic and harsh words are often well-founded, so she only uses them to express her disapproving opinions.

                More so, Serene is incredibly greedy. Especially when it comes to money and jewels. One might even call her a "thief", or at least, she has the mind of a thief. Whenever there would be a showcase about a super rare, super expensive jewel? She'll be right there, eye-boggling the jewel, perhaps even drooling as she daydreams about if she had that jewel, she'd be rich. However, one can argue that her greed is justified - some of the money she gets goes to the church for collection. Then again, she uses the majority of her money to buy food, obviously from her love of eating and pigging out. If someone were to call her out on her greed, she would often reply, "This is a present from the heavens!"

                Backstory: Serene was born in the small town of Lavender, where the old Pokemon Tower graveyard is. She was raised by her grandmother, since her parents were often overseas for work. She didn't really mind not seeing her parents all that much, though; since her grandmother was lovingly enough to keep her happy throughout her childhood. She, along with a few childhood friends, often played with the ghost-pokemon that liked to linger outside the tower, in the nearby park outside the town. From this, she was often around pokemon, and loved every moment with them.

                As she grew older, the director of the Pokemon society manged to help build a small haven for people and pokemon who wish to pay respect to their dear passed away pokemon, or for those who wish to plead to serve the heavens. Thus, Serene decided to volunteer for the haven. The problem was that the haven was severely underfunded, due to a debt. If the debt was not paid, the haven would be torn down. So, Serene decided to help pay for the debt by collecting as much money as she could.

                She did many jobs in her time, as well as sometimes asking for collection from people in the church, resulting in large heaps of money for her and the church. However, due to the large amount of money.. she began to be a little corrupted from it, and started to take a bit of money for herself for food. Of course, she knew it was okay, since some of the money would still go to the church anyway, and so, this would not classify as a 'sin'.

                Goals and Interests: From her love of money, she soon wanted to travel the world, gathering as much jewels and money as she could, as well as gorging herself with exotic food. She then learned all about pokemon trainers, going from land to land, collecting partner pokemon and competing in pokemon battles for prize money. So, to finally help pay the debt (as well as get more jewels), she decided that someday, for the love of the church (and herself), she would become a veteran pokemon trainer.
