Tales of Sinnoh: Dimensions


=> OOC THREAD


Do you believe in destiny? As long as we draw our breath, our Wheels of Fate turns, spinning our small and big experiences together. The wheel is said to represent life. Although it may appears to be infinite, and our choices limitless, like our destinies, the wheels of fate can come to but one end. When that wheel of fate stops.. the illusion is revealed and the implacability of fate is laid bare. Death.

Mr. Cyrus was a business man, who worked alongside the good professor of the Sinnoh region, Professor Rowan, in order to create one thing: the bonds between the trainer and pokemon. How can bonds help life? What can bonds accomplish in general? What exactly is bonds? One thing was for certain though, these bonds can become strong. And that strength can only be brought out by each new individual trainer. Today is the day where teenagers & young adults of age are able to obtain their newly starter pokemon, and travel through the Sinnoh region, for their hopes, dreams, and creating these new bonds.

What will be the fate of these trainers? Only time will tell.



The World


The world of pokemon is vast, and mysterious. But, one thing was clear. Pokemon are our friends. So, in the world of Sinnoh, inverse in a pokemon journey as you travel with your partner and captured pokemon, as you solve mysteries, travel to city to city, and having your own fun adventures along the way.

But that's not all; perhaps you should capture and meet as much pokemon as you possibly can, in order to help fill out the pokedex. You can travel alone, or with friends! Everything seems to be great for you! However, be wary that in the distance, not all will be well in the pokemon world. Nefarious deeds, evil plots, and sinister beings all lurk in each corner, bringing their own sense of despair in the pokemon world. Will your light of hope shine in each darkness of despair? It's all up to you. Welcome, to Sinnoh!


When The Roleplay Starts


It was time for your very first adventure. That was a realization you've made up once you've just woken up in in your home in Sandgem Town, in the Sinnoh region. On that day, something came as a delivery for you: a box that contained a pokeball inside of it! It was what you've been waiting for - your very first pokemon! It also came attached with a note:

Good day! My name is Professor Rowan, writing you to say that today is the day to go on your journey. You've been very patient, and for that, myself and Mr. Cyrus are both very grateful! Now then, as you know, you are to head to Jublife City at once, for the start of our ceremony! Don't dawdle, and in the mean while, keep a close eye on your pokemon, and in closed are some pokeballs, and your very own pokedex! So, until I see you again, take care, and good luck!

With that, you did whatever you needed to do before your adventure can begin...


Rules


★ Please be sure to follow the regular PC and RP Corner rules!
★ Bunnying is only allowed when agreed upon beforehand between players!
★ Do not godmod. It's no fun if a player is completely unbeatable or evolves all their pokémon early on.

★ When you want to enter a new area, wait for the GM to describe it first!
★ Whenever you finish an event, levels will be handed for your pokemon!
★ If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Violetta Marseille
Nickname: Vi
Age: 19
Gender: Female


Starter:

Sabrina the Misdreavus
Moves:
Confuse ray
Psywave
Spite
Nasty Plot
Growl
l




Strengths: Violetta is known for her bubbly, outgoing personality. She has excellent communications skills and can strike up conversations with new people easily. She doesn't have a shy bone in her body! Another one of Violetta's aptitudes is her ability to make others laugh, she is quite aloof and comical, cracking jokes in any situation. She is carefree and has a zest for life that is rather admirable. Violetta's artful nature has stemmed from being brought up alongside three elder brothers, being the 4th out of 5 children, she had to get creative in order to receive attention and over the years has become rather imaginative. Despite her apparent rashness, Violetta is skillfull and has the ability to get herself out of pressing situations. She can be quite deceitful when necessary, as she knows how to manipulate others into believing her. One of Violetta's most notable strengths is her unwavering bravery. She boldly throws herself into situations in order to aid and protect others and is immensely protective of those close to her and has no issue defending them until the end. Violetta's devotion to those around her proves how undeniably compassionate and kindhearted she is.


Weaknesses: Violetta can come across as flippant and capricious, as she has an inability to take certain situations seriously. She may laugh at an inappropriate time, or completely disregard a consequential situation. Violetta is also reckless, impulsive, and at times, thoughtless. She often makes decisions without proper contemplation or analysis or without considering possible consequences. In this way, she may be perceived as juvenile. Furthermore, Violetta has an undesirable tendency to act on emotion, even if she attempts to conceal her feelings completely. Violetta is mischievous and is consistently finding herself in dire situations although she is cunning enough to get herself out of them (for the most part). Lastly, Violetta can be hotheaded and impetuous at times as she may lash out on people who harm her or her loved ones. Like an Ursaring, she is relatively docile but may be aggressive if continually provoked..


History: Violetta was born and raised in Snowpoint city. She has 3 older brothers, Indigo, Raven and Jett, and a younger sister named Lilac. Violetta's mother, Vianne, was a famous pokemon coordinator back in her early twenties, winning the esteemed Grand Festival a total of two times. She has been the biggest influence on Violetta, adamantly encouraging her to follow her dreams. Her father, Sterling, works in the mines located in Oreburgh city and is devoted to his job, meaning that he was solemnly home when Violetta was growing up. Due to this, Vianne raised her five children single-handedly, ensuring that they were all fed and clothed at all times. Violetta is immensely close with her mother and resides at home in order to assist her mother in taking care of her younger sibling, Lilac. The Marseille family is tight-knit and Violetta is close with all of her siblings, as they helped to raise and take care of one another. As of late, Vianne has been insistent that Violetta leaves and embarks on a journey as a coordinator, ensuring her daughter that she'll be fine on her own. Violetta is initially reluctant but her ambitiousness gets the best of her and so she complies.


Goals: Violetta dreams of becoming a top pokemon coordinator and she has minimal interest in pokemon battles. She also wants to learn about different types of pokemon in general and she desires to travel around Sinnoh and explore the diverse region.

So will it be pretty freestyle with room for IC interaction, or heavily event-based or JP-focused?

    This rp looks cool, i wouldn't mind joining in.
    But i do have some questions:
    Is Mega evolution allowed in the future? The Pokemon found in the wild are only Sinnoh-game or is it a mix? Can our character be just exploring the region or doing contests/gym battles (or both)?

      In order: Yes though you'd have to follow a certain plot for that, The Pokemon found is mixed (obviously), and your character can do whatever dream they'd want -- it doesn't have to be just gyms or contests.

      Name: Laura Markos
      Age: 17
      Gender: Female

      Strengths:
      Compassionate: Brimming with energy and excitement, Laura goes about life with an almost childlike innocence. The young woman is an extremely kindhearted and compassionate individual, invariably considerate to others. She has a positive outlook on everything and can find the bright side of circumstances that otherwise would have been absolutely devastating. This makes her rather likeable and charismatic, being able to strike up friends wherever she goes.

      Willpower
      : Quitting is one word that doesn't fit into the young trainer's vocabulary. Though she may fail at first, she is hardworking and headstrong, sometimes to a fault. She goes about her life in a driven fashion, not taking shortcuts in anything.

      Knowledgeable: Spending much of her spare time devouring whatever published material she can find covering pokemon research, Laura has has an incredible knowledge when it comes to the in's and out's of the various creatures. She idolizes Professor Oak of the Kanto region and hopes to one day become a lab assistant to him.

      Weaknesses:

      Airheaded: Despite how intelligent she is on a number of topics, Laura can be rather aloof and absent minded. This causes many things to go over her head and makes her seem a bit dull. In spite of her high intellect, she is rather oblivious to matters of common sense and street knowledge.

      Gullible: As a result of her childlike innocence and positive outlook, she's a bit too trusting and is often willing to give strangers the benefit of the doubt, believing all people to be inherently good.

      Inexperienced: Though she knows quite a bit about pokemon battling from her studies, Laura has never put her knowledge to practice, so she's quite inexperienced when it comes to combat. She has a general idea of certain tactics, but at the end of the day doesn't necessarily know how to put them into play.

      Goals:
      Laura's biggest dream is to one day become the leading pokemon professor of a region, in the same vein as Professor Oak or Rowan. She idolizes the former, having read all of his published work and hoping to one day work in his lab as an assistant. She spent much of her time in Sandgem Town shadowing Rowan around, helping him with whatever menial tasks he needed in order to learn whatever she could from the experienced researcher. In taking this journey, both she and Rowan hope that her knowledge grows exponentially through practice and experiencing everything she's learned from her books firsthand.


      Starter:


      Charlie the Swinub (Thick Fat)
      Tackle | Powder Snow | Mud-Slap | Endure | Avalanche (Egg Move)

      Decided to dust off an old rp character and tweak her a bit. Will tweak more later but I think I have the majority of what I want.





      Starter Pokémon:



      Beldum

      Take Down | Iron Head (Tutor Move)

      .
      .
      .

      Name:
      Estelle Beatriz Santiago
      Age:
      17
      Strengths:
      - Ambitious overachiever: Estelle is a responsible young woman with a mind ready to be stimulated. Ambition and success drive her. Motivate her. When problems or tasks arise Estelle tackles them in that instant or as soon as they emerge. In addition the lady is willing to go the extra mile to perform at 110%. But she worked slowly, accepting nothing short of perfection.

      - Optimismic: Despite it all, Estelle carries a sense of optimism that allows her to keep going obstacle after obstacle. But do not let this demeanor fool you. Estelle is a fragile and sensitive woman who refuses to acknowledge such stress is present. Perhaps that might be why she speaks to her dolls and objects.

      -Patient: And she carries plenty of it. An open-minded individual who believes everybody has their history and reasons for their actions, even though she may not be so eager to agree. As such she carries a good temper, having been raised to believe that who gets angered first is the one who loses.
      Weaknesses:
      - Coward: The woman fears water for she cannot swim. Or heights. Large bugs as well. Oh, and the pitch black. Very tight spaces. Were she not too much of a coward then perhaps she wouldn't avoid conflict or be sitting on the fence the majority of the time instead of stating her true beliefs.

      - Conceited: She may not admit it, but the young adult thinks highly of herself as a result of the years of accomplishments and praise. Having grown focusing on bettering herself and collecting achievements like one collects Pokémon, it is no surprise she is somewhat vain.

      - Hermit: However her social life suffered to the point of being nonexistent. Thus her family is all she believes she needs and as a result puts them above everything else. This has caused Estelle to come off as clingy, awkward, a worrywart, and not to forget jealous and envious. That isn't to say she won't make friends; she's quite a pleasure to talk to. Unfortunately she isn't quite interested in keeping friendships alive.




      What are your goals?:
      Her ultimate goal is to meet the creator of the entire Pokémon world; Arceus.

      From a young age Estelle has acquired a desire for the legendaries of the Pokémon World, most notably that of her home region Sinnoh. All she seeks is to be in their presence, to indulge in their grandeur and chronicle such creatures into her list of accomplished dreams. Whether it is a picture or souvenir, she wishes to keep the memory.

      Along the way she ambitions to better herself as a Pokémon trainer, fully aware that such a daunting goal isn't without its obstacles. Wild encounters, rivals, and perhaps even an aggressive legendary may require some knowledge in Pokémon battles. As such, Estelle will partake in conquering the Sinnoh league to prepare herself in case such skills are of desperate need.

      Also, she loves to bake, thus will be seen experimenting on such.

        Is it possible to use the partner Pokemon from Lets Go (Eevee/Pikachu) and if yes, can the partner have one of the special tutor moves in the beginning or does it need to be taught in the rp like in the game?

        Zack Winchester


        "Zack Winchester is a young man, roughly seventeen years of age. He hails from a rather wealthy family. His father, Leonard Winchester, happens to be a big time producer down at the Jubilife Television studio. His mother, Ashley Winchester, just so happens to be one of the station's leading newscasters. Despite the fact that both parents make their living at the rather expansive city, the family has chosen to make their home in a rather impressive mansion located near the Valor Lakefront. As one might expect, the travel time combined with the constant buzz of being media elites have left both of the boy's parents away for most of the time. This left young Zack alone for the most part, often being raised and tended to by the hired staff that worked within the mansion."

        "Zack is an only child. He attended a private academy while growing up, meaning that his interactions with other children his age was not very common. While there were other students who did attend the academy, Zack would often keep to himself. He found the lot to be rather boring and somewhat fake. As one would expect, this left the boy with a rather negative reputation around the academy. It was one that he seemed to care very little about, at times even seemed to embrace it. As he grew older, Zack became somewhat of a trouble maker, getting into fights and at times even outright skipping out on classes. This landed him in a hot seat on more than one occasion, with the headmaster even threatening to have him expelled in an attempt to try and salvage the school's reputation. That said, Zack's parents were always more than willing to throw some of their money at the problem... which worked just fine for the headmaster."

        "Through some matter of miracle, Zack did manage to graduate from the academy. While his parents were hoping that he would follow in their footsteps and become a media sensation, Zack instead chose to begin his career as a Pokémon trainer. Whether or not this was yet another act of rebellion, remains unknown. Regardless, the decision caused a great deal of friction between his parents and himself, which resulted in Zack essentially running away from home to pursue his supposedly desired profession."

        "In terms of strengths, Zack is a very self-reliant young man. He has a personal belief that one should be fully capable of taking care of themselves, making sure to avoid being in the debts of others whenever possible. He believes that this is a good measure to also prevent others from mixing him up into their troubles as well. Zack is a very street smart individual. He is rather capable at keeping an eye out for scams or ensuring to not be taken advantage of, as when embarking on a journey one needs to always keep a good head on their shoulders. He also has a good deal of physical endurance. Despite his lackluster attendance, when Zack did bother to go to classes at the academy, his physical education class was always one he had the highest marks in. The boy is able to travel and lift more than his rather slender appearance would lead one to believe."

        "Zack is not without his weaknesses however. While being self-reliant, he is a rather unsocial teenager. He tends to ignore others around himself, mostly on account of being socially awkward, but also because he seems to have a great deal of mistrust in people. The boy is also very quick tempered, something that is most likely obvious from how often he got into fights during his younger days. When he finds something or someone irritating, it does not take long for his last nerve to be truly grated, often leading him to become quite hostile. Finally, Zack has a crippling fear of the dark. While some might find it a bit childish, leaving the boy without any source of light in a dark room or a cave can essentially lead him to be paralyzed with fear, almost to the point where he breaks out into a panic attack."

        "Zack's goal is to simply get out and see all of what Sinnoh has to offer. After spending so much time in his childhood either in his parent's mansion or at the academy, the boy is curious to see what exactly the region has to offer. Of course, he is fully aware that he'll need money to fund his journey, especially since his father and mother had no intention of footing his bills... so if he decided that he might as well take on the league challenge while he's at it. Besides, becoming a champion could always be interesting..."

        Charlie The Charmander



        "Charlie, as he's been dubbed by Zack, is quite possibly what one would consider to be Zack's only true friend. He was a gift presented to Zack by his father on his sixteenth birthday when he returned home briefly from a business trip overseas in the Kanto region. Full of energy and quite the mischievous creature, Charlie initially started as quite the thorn in Zack's side. Despite this however, the Pokémon has always seemingly been obsessed with Zack, wanting to be by the boy's side whenever possible."

        "As time went on, a bond of sorts did begin to form between the two. Zack began to see Charlie as someone he could come to for comfort, as someone he could vent his frustrations to or just find solace in when his world became to stressful. In Charlie's case, Zack was a fun friend who would take him outside and play with him whenever he was bored. It came to no one's surprise that when Zack ran away from home, Charlie was hot on heels and accompanied the young man."

        "Charlie was bred and raised from an egg a bit before he was given to Zack as a gift. While the boy has yet to truly begin training the Charmander properly, the Pokémon does have at the very least the basics in terms of moves, along with a technique that Zack can only assume came from breeding. These moves are Scratch, Ember, Growl, Smokescreen, and Dragon Pulse."

        No; it’d be Eevee or Pikachu with their normal moves. That’s it.

          Here's my character, hope she'll fit in. I'm still fixing some stuff, mostly her history(ready if u want to),
          starter(thinking of switching), and one of her strengths and weaknesses
          .


          ^ ^
          Meiko Nanatsu 17 Years Old Female




          Appearance: Meiko is a petite girl with chest length blue hair and short bangs between her eyes and framing her face, along with honey yellow eyes. In the beginning, she wears a white dress shirt, magenta work skirt with white ruffles, black leggings, and brown boots, her usual outfit in her town, but when her Pokemon arrives and it's time to travel, she'll change her outfit to an ocean blue high-waisted skirt with white tucked-in shirt and black collar(high waisted outfit), forest green zipped shirt combo(no undershirt), black tights, brown lanced boots, yellow sea-star headband, and a brown ruffled shoulder bag. She wears a orange and dark brown pendant tied onto a green string with a colorful stone with a strange symbol in the pendent.
          Extra: Based the clothes off of Pokemon X & Y and accessories & bags from Ultra Sun & Moon trainer customization.

          History: Read if tempted
          Spoiler:
          Meiko Nanatsu was an only child, but she was happy with her family, until the age of 5, when her mother died from a fatal illness. Her father slowly taught her how to do the chores, but when he went to Kalos one trip when she was 10, he took about 3 months to return and told her that he was going to take longer trips after making a new discovery in the region. Her father worked in the research industry, researching pokemon evolution. He had one of his helpers stay with his daughter to watch after her while he was gone. At first, the helper was a kind man who kept her company and made sure she was ok, but Meiko was wary of the man, not trusting him. She relied on herself and didn't let the man help her with anything, much less enter her room, locking it whenever she entered. At the age of 12, 2 years after her fathers discovery and the helpers constant stay, she still doesn't trust the man, just something about his go-lucky attitude doesn't sit right with her. He would constantly get close and say he was making sure she was ok and follow her when she went shopping to assure her she's safe. On her twelve birthday, Meiko was in her room reading a book about pokemon abilities, accidental leaving the room unlocked. What occured next won't be written, but i can say that the girl was traumatized. She gained a fear of being touched and trust issues, only trusting her father and deceased mother from that moment onward. Her father left one of his pokemon, a Feraligatr, to stay with her instead of another helper.


          Strengths: Benevolence, Intelligent, Observant, Self-Sufficient
          Compassion/Benevolence - Meiko is a kind and gentle girl who won't hesitate to come to the aid of those in need. She loved to help others and won't hesitate to offer herself up. No matter how long it takes, she will finish her task to the very end, and rarely does she leave something unfinished. She'll do about any task needed, but when it comes to any kind of skin ship, she'll shy away instantly.
          Intelligent/Memory - Meiko is a very intelligent girl, having learned as much about the Pokemon world as she can, like pokemon moves, the weaknesses, types of items, and cities. She also learned about each gym leader, even though she doesn't intent to take them on. She hasn't had the time to put her intelligence to the test, but she does tend to overthink sometimes.
          Observant - She may not interact with other people as much as wanted, but that doesn't mean she doesn't observe. She'll watch other trainers battles and learn what they do, how, and the pro's and cons.
          Self-Sufficient - Meiko had to learn to live by herself and take over the responsibilities when her mother died and her father's trips took longer periods of time. After her mothers death, her father would help out at times, but when he discovered something, he left the house for weeks or even months before returning, leaving her to fend for herself in that period of time. She had to learn to cook for herself, clean the house, wash/dry the clothes, wash dishes, and do the groceries.

          Weaknesses: Repress, Stubborn, Aphenphosmphobia
          Keeps to herself - Meiko tends to keep her thoughts, ideas, and feelings to herself when around humans/people, not wanting to show weakness in front of strangers. She'll turn away others concern and act as if everything is alright, but later on, her pokemon will learn.
          Stubborn - She'll help others, but she won't accept help from others, preferring to shoulder her burdens on her own, believing that her problems are hers alone to handle, as she is used to doing everything on her own. Once she decides on something, she'll stay with that idea until said otherwise, refusing to back down without a good reason. This does tend to get her in sticky situation.
          Trust Issues - Ever since the incident on her twelve birthday, she lost her trust on basically every human except her father and deceased mother. She became more aware and wary of everyone around her whenever she went outside her house, at some times, paranoid even.
          Aphenphosmphobia - Meiko has feared of being touched by humans/people ever since the incident with her father's ex-assistant. Pokemon she's ok with, but people are a whole different story. She'll shy away from physical touch and distance herself from people who tend to be too touchy or go into her personal space.

          Icy Wind(Tutoring) - Growl - Tackle - Water Gun - Mud Slap - Foresight




          Goals: Her goal is to find out what her necklace (a colorful stone with a strange symbol being held in a orange and dark brown pendant tied onto a green string), that she got from her mother before she died, does and the mysteries around it. The second one is to join contests (if possible), and make it to the top, following in her mother's footsteps, who joined contests before in her time.

            Name: Emmy Markab
            Age: 15
            Gender: Female

            History:
            If left to Emmy herself, she’d say there’s no history to be told. Nothing eventful happened, least of all anything that she was at the center of.

            Spoiler:
            Emmy was born to Greg and Leanne Markab, in Sandgem Town. She is the middle of three children; the rest of her family is made up by her older brother Will and her younger sister Lia. As a result, Emmy was often overlooked somewhat. Will was the oldest, making everything he went through new for him as well as her parents, while Lia was ever true to her role as the baby sister, demanding attention and crying easily.


            Strengths:
             - Independent
            She likes to think so anyway. Since she was mostly left to figure things out by herself in later childhood, Emmy is very self-reliant, and actively avoids asking others for help if she can.
            Still, she values the company and opinion of those close to her more than anything.

             - Empathetic
            Though she might try, Emmy can never bring herself to ignore the plight of others. Seeing another creature hurt - be it human or Pokémon - makes her feel bad in turn, and creates a strong want to help the one in need. At the same time, Emmy is wary of crocodile tears (looking at you Lia) and hates feeling like she was taken advantage of even more.

            Weaknesses:
             - Unmotivated
            The main thing plaguing Emmy is her lack of… well, a goal. She honestly only decided to go on this journey because her older brother did it, most of her friends are doing it, and even her little sister keeps bugging her about it. She feels it’s expected of her, too.

             - Stubborn
            Emmy is rather stuck in her own ways, and due to her introversion has few people that could change her view. In fact, she feels a need to stand out from 'normal' people to validate herself, to the point that she'll be contrary and sometimes outright rude to her peers.

             - Jealous
            Because she feels empty at times, Emmy can grow jealous of others easily. She'll feel envy for their prowess, their motivation, or even for their relationships. Despite this, she's often frustrated with herself immediately after, for being unable to make changes in her own life.




            Starter Pokémon: Torchic

            Nickname: None yet.

            Moveset: Scratch, Growl, Ember, Sand Attack, Peck, Shadow Claw

            What are your goals?:
            Currently, Emmy's goal is simply to set out. She hopes the journey will bring her some insight in who she is and what she really wants to do. Emmy has always had an innate affinity with Pokémon however, so her first order of business will be to befriend and train her newly received Torchic.

              Name:
              Kurapika
              Age:
              20
              Gender:
              ???


              HISTORY
              Kurapika is a member of the Kurta Clan, a secret clan that has always seeked to remain isolated from the rest of the world because its members are known to have particular eyes that turn scarlet under strong emotions.
              As a child, Kurapika was always looking for adventures and had an unsattiable thirst to discover the unknown until that day that changed everything: Kurapika almost fell from a cliff if not for the interference of their best friend, Pairo. While Kurapika was unharmed, Pairo had injured his legs and his eyes. Disabled and blind, his condition went worse everyday.
              Deeply affected by this incident, the feeling of guilt made Kurapika decide to go to the outside world in order to bring back the best doctor to cure Pairo despite the strong opposition of the clan's elder.
              This decision made things worse, much much worse than Kurapika could ever imagine! The town ended up discovered because of Kurapika and all of its people were assassinated by a mischeavous band who coveted the scarlet eyes of the Kurta Clan!
              Kurapika sank in tears and despair.

              STRENGTHS
              Scarlet Eyes - When a member of the Kurta Clan becomes enraged, their eyes turn a vivid shade of red, which triggers an amazing increase in physical strength and senses.
              Master Strategist - Kurapika can formulate flawless plans even in combat to exploit the opponent's weaknesses to the fullest.
              NVC Expert - Kurapika is adept at recognizing lies by looking at the interlocutor's eyes or by observing their body language.
              Bilingual - While Kurapika's mother tongue is the language spoken by the Kurta Clan, learning the language used in the outside world at large was an easy task.

              WEAKNESSES
              Friendships - Despite all the strengths enlisted above, Kurapika can easily lose focus AND logical reasoning when the life of a friend is in danger.
              Grudge - Kurapika holds a huge grudge to those who murdered the Kurta Clan; the picture of the burnt town sinking in blood makes Kurapika enter a blinding rage when.

              Ryan Hebel


              Age: 17

              Gender: Male

              History: Not much of particular interest. Ryan has only lived in Sandgem for the past year. He was bullied when he was younger and consistently had problems making friends and keeping his grades up at school. As a reward for managing to struggle through his classes (however close he may have come to failing) and to try giving him a chance at finding some real confidence his parents moved them all to Sandgem to give him a fresh start. Unfortunately his fresh start hasn’t amounted to much so far, mainly thanks to avoiding human interaction as much as possible.

              Even when outside it’s as if Ryan is hiding from the world, never leaving the house without his heavy dark gray hoodie - utterly lacking in any logos or decorations - and baggy, dark blue-jeans, leaving anyone who looks at him hard-pressed to even tell his body shape underneath it all, let alone see the bright amber eyes he hides under his hood.

              Strengths: Ryan almost never acts without thinking first, which helps him avoid mistakes as long as it isn’t a matter of charming anyone. A love of reading has helped develop Ryan’s imagination as well as giving him a wide base of knowledge in his interests for his age(pokémon, trauma and gentle exercises most of all). Ryan’s will and nerves are steel in the face of pokémon, he could stare down a charging Tauros without so much as flinching. As for people...

              Weaknesses: Ryan is prone to intense social anxiety, constantly questioning everything he does involving other people and dwelling on the various negative thoughts he’s sure he’s inspiring in their heads. Despite his firm confidence in the things he believes he knows, Ryan doesn’t have the slightest bit of confidence in himself and falters the second he’s the subject of any discussion.

              Starter Pokémon: Mudbray

              Nickname: Clyde

              Moveset: Mud-Slap, Mud Sport, Rototiller, Bulldoze, Double Kick, Rest

              What are your goals?: Ryan dreams of one day opening a pair of “Pokérehab Resorts” where the best techniques, professionals and technology are used in conjunction with hand-picked, specially trained pokémon to provide both physical and psychological therapies to both people and pokémon of all kinds and maladies. If his resorts were a success Ryan would also endeavor to support various pokémon nature reserves as places for his non-human patients without trainers to live peacefully after they graduate from their therapy and/or rehabilitation.

              Starter Pokémon:



              Beldum

              Take Down | Iron Head (Tutor Move)

              .
              .
              .

              Name:
              Estelle Beatriz Santiago
              Age:
              17
              Strengths:
              - Ambitious overachiever: Estelle is a responsible young woman with a mind ready to be stimulated. Ambition and success drive her. Motivate her. When problems or tasks arise Estelle tackles them in that instant or as soon as they emerge. In addition the lady is willing to go the extra mile to perform at 110%. But she worked slowly, accepting nothing short of perfection.

              - Optimismic: Despite it all, Estelle carries a sense of optimism that allows her to keep going obstacle after obstacle. But do not let this demeanor fool you. Estelle is a fragile and sensitive woman who refuses to acknowledge such stress is present. Perhaps that might be why she speaks to her dolls and objects.

              -Patient: And she carries plenty of it. An open-minded individual who believes everybody has their history and reasons for their actions, even though she may not be so eager to agree. As such she carries a good temper, having been raised to believe that who gets angered first is the one who loses.
              Weaknesses:
              - Coward: The woman fears water for she cannot swim. Or heights. Large bugs as well. Oh, and the pitch black. Very tight spaces. Were she not too much of a coward then perhaps she wouldn't avoid conflict or be sitting on the fence the majority of the time instead of stating her true beliefs.

              - Conceited: She may not admit it, but the young adult thinks highly of herself as a result of the years of accomplishments and praise. Having grown focusing on bettering herself and collecting achievements like one collects Pokémon, it is no surprise she is somewhat vain.

              - Hermit: However her social life suffered to the point of being nonexistent. Thus her family is all she believes she needs and as a result puts them above everything else. This has caused Estelle to come off as clingy, awkward, a worrywart, and not to forget jealous and envious. That isn't to say she won't make friends; she's quite a pleasure to talk to. Unfortunately she isn't quite interested in keeping friendships alive.




              What are your goals?:
              Her ultimate goal is to meet the creator of the entire Pokémon world; Arceus.

              From a young age Estelle has acquired a desire for the legendaries of the Pokémon World, most notably that of her home region Sinnoh. All she seeks is to be in their presence, to indulge in their grandeur and chronicle such creatures into her list of accomplished dreams. Whether it is a picture or souvenir, she wishes to keep the memory.

              Along the way she ambitions to better herself as a Pokémon trainer, fully aware that such a daunting goal isn't without its obstacles. Wild encounters, rivals, and perhaps even an aggressive legendary may require some knowledge in Pokémon battles. As such, Estelle will partake in conquering the Sinnoh league to prepare herself in case such skills are of desperate need.

              Also, she loves to bake, thus will be seen experimenting on such.

              "Zack Winchester is a young man, roughly seventeen years of age. He hails from a rather wealthy family. His father, Leonard Winchester, happens to be a big time producer down at the Jubilife Television studio. His mother, Ashley Winchester, just so happens to be one of the station's leading newscasters. Despite the fact that both parents make their living at the rather expansive city, the family has chosen to make their home in a rather impressive mansion located near the Valor Lakefront. As one might expect, the travel time combined with the constant buzz of being media elites have left both of the boy's parents away for most of the time. This left young Zack alone for the most part, often being raised and tended to by the hired staff that worked within the mansion."

              "Zack is an only child. He attended a private academy while growing up, meaning that his interactions with other children his age was not very common. While there were other students who did attend the academy, Zack would often keep to himself. He found the lot to be rather boring and somewhat fake. As one would expect, this left the boy with a rather negative reputation around the academy. It was one that he seemed to care very little about, at times even seemed to embrace it. As he grew older, Zack became somewhat of a trouble maker, getting into fights and at times even outright skipping out on classes. This landed him in a hot seat on more than one occasion, with the headmaster even threatening to have him expelled in an attempt to try and salvage the school's reputation. That said, Zack's parents were always more than willing to throw some of their money at the problem... which worked just fine for the headmaster."

              "Through some matter of miracle, Zack did manage to graduate from the academy. While his parents were hoping that he would follow in their footsteps and become a media sensation, Zack instead chose to begin his career as a Pokémon trainer. Whether or not this was yet another act of rebellion, remains unknown. Regardless, the decision caused a great deal of friction between his parents and himself, which resulted in Zack essentially running away from home to pursue his supposedly desired profession."

              "Strengths and weaknesses will go here soon."

              "Zack's goal is to simply get out and see all of what Sinnoh has to offer. After spending so much time in his childhood either in his parent's mansion or at the academy, the boy is curious to see what exactly the region has to offer. Of course, he is fully aware that he'll need money to fund his journey, especially since his father and mother had no intention of footing his bills... so if he decided that he might as well take on the league challenge while he's at it. Besides, becoming a champion could always be interesting..."

              Charlie The Charmander



              "Charlie, as he's been dubbed by Zack, is quite possibly what one would consider to be Zack's only true friend. He was a gift presented to Zack by his father on his sixteenth birthday when he returned home briefly from a business trip overseas in the Kanto region. Full of energy and quite the mischievous creature, Charlie initially started as quite the thorn in Zack's side. Despite this however, the Pokémon has always seemingly been obsessed with Zack, wanting to be by the boy's side whenever possible."

              "As time went on, a bond of sorts did begin to form between the two. Zack began to see Charlie as someone he could come to for comfort, as someone he could vent his frustrations to or just find solace in when his world became to stressful. In Charlie's case, Zack was a fun friend who would take him outside and play with him whenever he was bored. It came to no one's surprise that when Zack ran away from home, Charlie was hot on heels and accompanied the young man."

              "Charlie was bred and raised from an egg a bit before he was given to Zack as a gift. While the boy has yet to truly begin training the Charmander properly, the Pokémon does have at the very least the basics in terms of moves, along with a technique that Zack can only assume came from breeding. These moves are Scratch, Ember, Growl, Smokescreen, and Dragon Pulse."

              Meiko Nanatsu 18 Years Old Female




              Appearance: Meiko is a petite girl with medium length raven hair and short bangs, along with steel blue eyes. In the beginning, she wears a white dress shirt, magenta work skirt with white ruffles, black leggings, and brown boots, her usual outfit in her town, but when her Pokemon arrives and it's time to travel, she'll change her outfit to a magenta high-waisted skirt with white tucked-in shirt and black collar(high waisted outfit), gray zipped shirt combo(no undershirt), black tights, brown lanced boots, white sea-star headband, and a cream ruffled shoulder bag.
              Extra: Based the clothes off of Pokemon X & Y and accessories & bags from Ultra Sun & Moon trainer customization.

              History: Read if tempted
              Spoiler:
              Meiko Nanatsu was an only child, but she was happy with her family, until the age of 5, when her mother died from a fatal illness. Her father slowly taught her how to do the chores, but when he went to Kalos one trip when she was 10, he took about 3 months to return and told her that he was going to take longer trips after making a new discovery in the region. Her father worked in the research industry, researching pokemon evolution. He had one of his helpers stay with his daughter to watch after her while he was gone. At first, the helper was a kind man who kept her company and made sure she was ok, but Meiko was wary of the man, not trusting him. She relied on herself and didn't let the man help her with anything, much less enter her room, locking it whenever she entered. At the age of 12, 2 years after her fathers discovery and the helpers constant stay, she still doesn't trust the man, just something about his go-lucky attitude doesn't sit right with her. He would constantly get close and say he was making sure she was ok and follow her when she went shopping to assure her she's safe. On her twelve birthday, Meiko was in her room reading a book about pokemon abilities, accidental leaving the room unlocked. What occured next won't be written, but i can say that the girl was traumatized. She gained a fear of being touched and trust issues, only trusting her father and deceased mother from that moment onward. Her father left one of his pokemon, an Empoleon, to sat with her instead of another helper.


              Strengths: Benevolence, Intelligent, Observant, Self-Sufficient
              Compassion/Benevolence - Meiko is a kind and gentle girl who won't hesitate to come to the aid of those in need. She loved to help others and won't hesitate to offer herself up. No matter how long it takes, she will finish her task to the very end, and rarely does she leave something unfinished.
              Intelligent/Memory - Meiko is a very intelligent girl, having learned as much about Pokemon as she can, about their stats, abilities, moves, almost anything there is. She also put her time to knowing the different gym leaders and their specialties just in case she might fight the gym leaders. During summer schools, she would be ahead of the other students and defeat most of her opponents using what she knows about the Pokemon from memory, but she does tend to overthink sometimes.
              Observant - She may not interact with other people as much as wanted, but that doesn't mean she doesn't observe. She'll watch others talk and listen to their conversation, learning about how to speak to others in that way.
              Self-Sufficient - Meiko had to learn to live by herself and take over the responsibilities when her mother died and her father's trips took longer periods of time. After her mothers death, her father would help out at times, but when he discovered something, he left the house for weeks or even months before returning, leaving her to fend for herself in that period of time. She had to learn to cook for herself, clean the house, wash/dry the clothes, wash dishes, and do the groceries.

              Weaknesses: Repress, Stubborn, Aphenphosmphobia
              Keeps to herself - Meiko tends to keep her thoughts, ideas, and feelings to herself when around humans/people, not wanting to show weakness in front of strangers. She'll turn away others concern and act as if everything is alright, but her pokemon friends know her too well.
              Stubborn - She'll help others, but she won't accept help from others, preferring to shoulder her burdens on her own, believing that her problems are hers alone to handle, as she is used to doing everything on her own. Once she decides on something, she'll stay with that idea until said otherwise, refusing to back down without a good reason. This is bad especially when someone ask about her physical/mental health or if she needs help, she'll do everything in her power to refuse and reply with an "ok", refusing to show weakness.
              Trust Issues - Ever since the incident on her twelveth birthday, she lost her trust on basically every human except her father and deceased mother. She became more aware and wary of eveyone around her whenever she went outside her house, at some times, paranoid even.
              Aphenphosmphobia - Meiko has feared of being touched by humans/people ever since the incident with her father's ex-assistant. Pokemon she's ok with, but people are a whole different story. She'll shy away from physical touch and distance herself from people who tend to be too touchy.

              Goals: Her goal is to find out what her bracelet (a colorful stone with a strange symbol being held in a white heart shaped charm which is held in a gray bracelet that resembles clams put together), that she got from her mother before she died, does and the mysteries around it. Her second goal is to find her father and figure out why he left (traveled for long periods), or what his new profession is.

              Name: Emmy Markab
              Age: 15
              Gender: Female

              History:
              If left to Emmy herself, she’d say there’s no history to be told. Nothing eventful happened, least of all anything that she was at the center of.

              Spoiler:
              Emmy was born to Greg and Leanne Markab, in Sandgem Town. She is the middle of three children; the rest of her family is made up by her older brother Will and her younger sister Lia. As a result, Emmy was often overlooked somewhat. Will was the oldest, making everything he went through new for him as well as her parents, while Lia was ever true to her role as the baby sister, demanding attention and crying easily.

              ... imightaddmoreherebutfornowi'mtired


              Strengths:
               - Independent
              She likes to think so anyway. Since she was mostly left to figure things out by herself in later childhood, Emmy is very self-reliant, and actively avoids asking others for help if she can.
              Still, she values the company and opinion of those close to her more than anything.

               - Empathetic
              Though she might try, Emmy can never bring herself to ignore the plight of others. Seeing another creature hurt - be it human or Pokémon - makes her feel bad in turn, and creates a strong want to help the one in need. At the same time, Emmy is wary of crocodile tears (looking at you Lia) and hates feeling like she was taken advantage of even more.

              Weaknesses:
               - Unmotivated
              The main thing plaguing Emmy is her lack of… well, a goal. She honestly only decided to go on this journey because her older brother did it, most of her friends are doing it, and even her little sister keeps bugging her about it. She feels it’s expected of her, too.

               - Stubborn
              Emmy is rather stuck in her own ways, and due to her introversion has few people that could change her view. In fact, she feels a need to stand out from 'normal' people to validate herself, to the point that she'll be contrary and sometimes outright rude to her peers.

Emmy has always had an innate affinity with Pokémon however, so her first order of business will be to befriend and train her newly received Torchic.

              Gender:
              ???


              HISTORY
              Kurapika is a member of the Kurta Clan, a secret clan that has always seeked to remain isolated from the rest of the world because its members are known to have particular eyes that turn scarlet under strong emotions.
              As a child, Kurapika was always looking for adventures and had an unsattiable thirst to discover the unknown until that day that changed everything: Kurapika almost fell from a cliff if not for the interference of their best friend, Pairo. While Kurapika was unharmed, Pairo had injured his legs and his eyes. Disabled and blind, his condition went worse everyday.
              Deeply affected by this incident, the feeling of guilt made Kurapika decide to go to the outside world in order to bring back the best doctor to cure Pairo despite the strong opposition of the clan's elder.
              This decision made things worse, much much worse than Kurapika could ever imagine! The town ended up discovered because of Kurapika and all of its people were assassinated by a mischeavous band who coveted the scarlet eyes of the Kurta Clan!
              Kurapika sank in tears and despair.

              STRENGTHS
              Scarlet Eyes - When a member of the Kurta Clan becomes enraged, their eyes turn a vivid shade of red, which triggers an amazing increase in physical strength. In this state, even as a child Kurapika could gain the upper hand in terms of speed and strength against three adults, and easily overpowered them.
              Advanced Hearing - Kurapika has a keener sense of hearing than average humans, which enables to perceive revelatory sounds and overhear conversations others would miss.
              Enhanced Agility - Kurapika can jump several meters in the air and hit the opponents from various angles with acrobatic moves without losing balance.
              Master Strategist - Kurapika can formulate flawless plans even in combat to exploit the opponent's weaknesses to the fullest.
              NVC Expert - Kurapika is adept at recognizing lies by looking at the interlocutor's eyes or by observing their body language.
              Bilingual - While Kurapika's mother tongue is the language spoken by the Kurta Clan, learning the language used in the outside world at large was an easy task.

              WEAKNESSES
              Friendships - Despite all the strengths enlisted above, Kurapika can easily lose focus AND logical reasoning when the life of a friend is in danger.
              Grudge - Kurapika holds a huge grudge to those who murdered the Kurta Clan; the picture of the burnt town sinking in blood makes Kurapika enter a blinding rage when.

              History: Not much of particular interest. Ryan has only lived in Sandgem for the past year. He was bullied when he was younger and consistently had problems making friends and keeping his grades up at school. As a reward for managing to struggle through his classes (however close he may have come to failing) and to try giving him a chance at finding some real confidence his parents moved them all to Sandgem to give him a fresh start. Unfortunately his fresh start hasn’t amounted to much so far, mainly thanks to avoiding human interaction as much as possible.

              Even when outside it’s as if Ryan is hiding from the world, never leaving the house without his heavy dark gray hoodie - utterly lacking in any logos or decorations - and baggy, dark blue-jeans, leaving anyone who looks at him hard-pressed to even tell his body shape underneath it all, let alone see the bright amber eyes he hides under his hood.

              Strengths: Ryan almost never acts without thinking first, which helps him avoid mistakes as long as it isn’t a matter of charming anyone. A love of reading has helped develop Ryan’s imagination as well as giving him a wide base of knowledge in his interests for his age(pokémon, trauma and gentle exercises most of all). Ryan’s will and nerves are steel in the face of pokémon, he could stare down a charging Tauros without so much as flinching. As for people...

              Weaknesses: Ryan is prone to intense social anxiety, constantly questioning everything he does involving other people and dwelling on the various negative thoughts he’s sure he’s inspiring in their heads. Despite his firm confidence in the things he believes he knows, Ryan doesn’t have the slightest bit of confidence in himself and falters the second he’s the subject of any discussion.

              Meiko Nanatsu 18 Years Old Female




              Appearance: Meiko is a petite girl with medium length raven hair and short bangs, along with steel blue eyes. In the beginning, she wears a white dress shirt, magenta work skirt with white ruffles, black leggings, and brown boots, her usual outfit in her town, but when her Pokemon arrives and it's time to travel, she'll change her outfit to a steel grey high-waisted skirt with white tucked-in shirt and black collar(high waisted outfit), black zipped shirt combo(no undershirt), black tights, brown lanced boots, orange sea-star headband, and a cream ruffled shoulder bag. She wears a steel-blue bracelet that resembles clams put together with a colorful stone with a strange symbol being held in a orange heart shaped charm.
              Extra: Based the clothes off of Pokemon X & Y and accessories & bags from Ultra Sun & Moon trainer customization.

              History: Read if tempted
              Spoiler:
              Meiko Nanatsu was an only child, but she was happy with her family, until the age of 5, when her mother died from a fatal illness. Her father slowly taught her how to do the chores, but when he went to Kalos one trip when she was 10, he took about 3 months to return and told her that he was going to take longer trips after making a new discovery in the region. Her father worked in the research industry, researching pokemon evolution. He had one of his helpers stay with his daughter to watch after her while he was gone. At first, the helper was a kind man who kept her company and made sure she was ok, but Meiko was wary of the man, not trusting him. She relied on herself and didn't let the man help her with anything, much less enter her room, locking it whenever she entered. At the age of 12, 2 years after her fathers discovery and the helpers constant stay, she still doesn't trust the man, just something about his go-lucky attitude doesn't sit right with her. He would constantly get close and say he was making sure she was ok and follow her when she went shopping to assure her she's safe. On her twelve birthday, Meiko was in her room reading a book about pokemon abilities, accidental leaving the room unlocked. What occured next won't be written, but i can say that the girl was traumatized. She gained a fear of being touched and trust issues, only trusting her father and deceased mother from that moment onward. Her father left one of his pokemon, an Empoleon, to sat with her instead of another helper.


              Strengths: Benevolence, Intelligent, Observant, Self-Sufficient
              Compassion/Benevolence - Meiko is a kind and gentle girl who won't hesitate to come to the aid of those in need. She loved to help others and won't hesitate to offer herself up. No matter how long it takes, she will finish her task to the very end, and rarely does she leave something unfinished.
              Intelligent/Memory - Meiko is a very intelligent girl, having learned as much about Pokemon as she can, about their stats, abilities, moves, almost anything there is. She also put her time to knowing the different gym leaders and their specialties just in case she might fight the gym leaders. During summer schools, she would be ahead of the other students and defeat most of her opponents using what she knows about the Pokemon from memory, but she does tend to overthink sometimes.
              Observant - She may not interact with other people as much as wanted, but that doesn't mean she doesn't observe. She'll watch others talk and listen to their conversation, learning about how to speak to others in that way.
              Self-Sufficient - Meiko had to learn to live by herself and take over the responsibilities when her mother died and her father's trips took longer periods of time. After her mothers death, her father would help out at times, but when he discovered something, he left the house for weeks or even months before returning, leaving her to fend for herself in that period of time. She had to learn to cook for herself, clean the house, wash/dry the clothes, wash dishes, and do the groceries.

              Weaknesses: Repress, Stubborn, Aphenphosmphobia
              Keeps to herself - Meiko tends to keep her thoughts, ideas, and feelings to herself when around humans/people, not wanting to show weakness in front of strangers. She'll turn away others concern and act as if everything is alright, but her pokemon friends know her too well.
              Stubborn - She'll help others, but she won't accept help from others, preferring to shoulder her burdens on her own, believing that her problems are hers alone to handle, as she is used to doing everything on her own. Once she decides on something, she'll stay with that idea until said otherwise, refusing to back down without a good reason. This is bad especially when someone ask about her physical/mental health or if she needs help, she'll do everything in her power to refuse and reply with an "ok", refusing to show weakness.
              Trust Issues - Ever since the incident on her twelveth birthday, she lost her trust on basically every human except her father and deceased mother. She became more aware and wary of eveyone around her whenever she went outside her house, at some times, paranoid even.
              Aphenphosmphobia - Meiko has feared of being touched by humans/people ever since the incident with her father's ex-assistant. Pokemon she's ok with, but people are a whole different story. She'll shy away from physical touch and distance herself from people who tend to be too touchy.

              Icy Wind(Tutoring) - Growl - Tackle - Water Gun - Mud Slap - Foresight




              Goals: Her goal is to find out what her bracelet (a colorful stone with a strange symbol being held in a orange heart shaped charm which is held in a steel-blue bracelet that resembles clams put together), that she got from her mother before she died, does and the mysteries around it. Her second goal is to find her father and figure out why he left (traveled for long periods), or what his new profession is.

              "Zack Winchester is a young man, roughly seventeen years of age. He hails from a rather wealthy family. His father, Leonard Winchester, happens to be a big time producer down at the Jubilife Television studio. His mother, Ashley Winchester, just so happens to be one of the station's leading newscasters. Despite the fact that both parents make their living at the rather expansive city, the family has chosen to make their home in a rather impressive mansion located near the Valor Lakefront. As one might expect, the travel time combined with the constant buzz of being media elites have left both of the boy's parents away for most of the time. This left young Zack alone for the most part, often being raised and tended to by the hired staff that worked within the mansion."

              "Zack is an only child. He attended a private academy while growing up, meaning that his interactions with other children his age was not very common. While there were other students who did attend the academy, Zack would often keep to himself. He found the lot to be rather boring and somewhat fake. As one would expect, this left the boy with a rather negative reputation around the academy. It was one that he seemed to care very little about, at times even seemed to embrace it. As he grew older, Zack became somewhat of a trouble maker, getting into fights and at times even outright skipping out on classes. This landed him in a hot seat on more than one occasion, with the headmaster even threatening to have him expelled in an attempt to try and salvage the school's reputation. That said, Zack's parents were always more than willing to throw some of their money at the problem... which worked just fine for the headmaster."

              "Through some matter of miracle, Zack did manage to graduate from the academy. While his parents were hoping that he would follow in their footsteps and become a media sensation, Zack instead chose to begin his career as a Pokémon trainer. Whether or not this was yet another act of rebellion, remains unknown. Regardless, the decision caused a great deal of friction between his parents and himself, which resulted in Zack essentially running away from home to pursue his supposedly desired profession."

              "Strengths and weaknesses will go here soon."

              "Zack's goal is to simply get out and see all of what Sinnoh has to offer. After spending so much time in his childhood either in his parent's mansion or at the academy, the boy is curious to see what exactly the region has to offer. Of course, he is fully aware that he'll need money to fund his journey, especially since his father and mother had no intention of footing his bills... so if he decided that he might as well take on the league challenge while he's at it. Besides, becoming a champion could always be interesting..."

              Charlie The Charmander



              "Charlie, as he's been dubbed by Zack, is quite possibly what one would consider to be Zack's only true friend. He was a gift presented to Zack by his father on his sixteenth birthday when he returned home briefly from a business trip overseas in the Kanto region. Full of energy and quite the mischievous creature, Charlie initially started as quite the thorn in Zack's side. Despite this however, the Pokémon has always seemingly been obsessed with Zack, wanting to be by the boy's side whenever possible."

              "As time went on, a bond of sorts did begin to form between the two. Zack began to see Charlie as someone he could come to for comfort, as someone he could vent his frustrations to or just find solace in when his world became to stressful. In Charlie's case, Zack was a fun friend who would take him outside and play with him whenever he was bored. It came to no one's surprise that when Zack ran away from home, Charlie was hot on heels and accompanied the young man."

              "Charlie was bred and raised from an egg a bit before he was given to Zack as a gift. While the boy has yet to truly begin training the Charmander properly, the Pokémon does have at the very least the basics in terms of moves, along with a technique that Zack can only assume came from breeding. These moves are Scratch, Ember, Growl, Smokescreen, and Dragon Pulse."

              Starter Pokémon:



              Beldum

              Take Down | Iron Head (Tutor Move)

              .
              .
              .


              Name:

              Estelle Beatriz Santiago

              Age:

              17

              Strengths:

              - Ambitious overachiever: Estelle is a responsible young woman with a mind ready to be stimulated. Ambition and success drive her. Motivate her. When problems or tasks arise Estelle tackles them in that instant or as soon as they emerge. In addition the lady is willing to go the extra mile to perform at 110%. But she worked slowly, accepting nothing short of perfection.

              - Optimismic: Despite it all, Estelle carries a sense of optimism that allows her to keep going obstacle after obstacle. But do not let this demeanor fool you. Estelle is a fragile and sensitive woman who refuses to acknowledge such stress is present. Perhaps that might be why she speaks to her dolls and objects.

              -Patient: And she carries plenty of it. An open-minded individual who believes everybody has their history and reasons for their actions, even though she may not be so eager to agree. As such she carries a good temper, having been raised to believe that who gets angered first is the one who loses.

              Weaknesses:

              - Coward: The woman fears water for she cannot swim. Or heights. Large bugs as well. Oh, and the pitch black. Very tight spaces. Were she not too much of a coward then perhaps she wouldn't avoid conflict or be sitting on the fence the majority of the time instead of stating her true beliefs.

              - Conceited: She may not admit it, but the young adult thinks highly of herself as a result of the years of accomplishments and praise. Having grown focusing on bettering herself and collecting achievements like one collects Pokémon, it is no surprise she is somewhat vain.

              - Hermit: However her social life suffered to the point of being nonexistent. Thus her family is all she believes she needs and as a result puts them above everything else. This has caused Estelle to come off as clingy, awkward, a worrywart, and not to forget jealous and envious. That isn't to say she won't make friends; she's quite a pleasure to talk to. Unfortunately she isn't quite interested in keeping friendships alive.




              What are your goals?:

              Her ultimate goal is to meet the creator of the entire Pokémon world; Arceus.

              From a young age Estelle has acquired a desire for the legendaries of the Pokémon World, most notably that of her home region Sinnoh. All she seeks is to be in their presence, to indulge in their grandeur and chronicle such creatures into her list of accomplished dreams. Whether it is a picture or souvenir, she wishes to keep the memory.

              Along the way she ambitions to better herself as a Pokémon trainer, fully aware that such a daunting goal isn't without its obstacles. Wild encounters, rivals, and perhaps even an aggressive legendary may require some knowledge in Pokémon battles. As such, Estelle will partake in conquering the Sinnoh league to prepare herself in case such skills are of desperate need.

              Also, she loves to bake, thus will be seen experimenting on such.

              Gender: Female

              Strengths:
              Compassionate: Brimming with energy and excitement, Laura goes about life with an almost childlike innocence. The young woman is an extremely kindhearted and compassionate individual, invariably considerate to others. She has a positive outlook on everything and can find the bright side of circumstances that otherwise would have been absolutely devastating. This makes her rather likeable and charismatic, being able to strike up friends wherever she goes.

              Willpower
              : Quitting is one word that doesn't fit into the young trainer's vocabulary. Though she may fail at first, she is hardworking and headstrong, sometimes to a fault. She goes about her life in a driven fashion, not taking shortcuts in anything.

              Knowledgeable: Spending much of her spare time devouring whatever published material she can find covering pokemon research, Laura has has an incredible knowledge when it comes to the in's and out's of the various creatures. She idolizes Professor Oak of the Kanto region and hopes to one day become a lab assistant to him.

              Weaknesses:

              Airheaded: Despite how intelligent she is on a number of topics, Laura can be rather aloof and absent minded. This causes many things to go over her head and makes her seem a bit dull. In spite of her high intellect, she is rather oblivious to matters of common sense and street knowledge.

              Gullible: As a result of her childlike innocence and positive outlook, she's a bit too trusting and is often willing to give strangers the benefit of the doubt, believing all people to be inherently good.

              Inexperienced: Though she knows quite a bit about pokemon battling from her studies, Laura has never put her knowledge to practice, so she's quite inexperienced when it comes to combat. She has a general idea of certain tactics, but at the end of the day doesn't necessarily know how to put them into play.

              Goals:
              Laura's biggest dream is to one day become the leading pokemon professor of a region, in the same vein as Professor Oak or Rowan. She idolizes the former, having read all of his published work and hoping to one day work in his lab as an assistant. She spent much of her time in Sandgem Town shadowing Rowan around, helping him with whatever menial tasks he needed in order to learn whatever she could from the experienced researcher. In taking this journey, both she and Rowan hope that her knowledge grows exponentially through practice and experiencing everything she's learned from her books firsthand.


              Starter:

              Kira the Ralts
              Confusion | Double Team | Teleport | Disarming Voice | Shadow Sneak (Egg)

              Nickname: Vi
              Age: 19
              Gender: Female


              Starter:

              Sabrina the Misdreavus
              Moves:
              Confuse ray
              Psywave
              Spite
              Nasty Plot
              Growl




              Strengths: Violetta is known for her bubbly, outgoing personality. She has excellent communications skills and can strike up conversations with new people easily. She doesn't have a shy bone in her body! Another one of Violetta's aptitudes is her ability to make others laugh, she is quite aloof and comical, cracking jokes in any situation. She is carefree and has a zest for life that is rather admirable. Violetta's artful nature has stemmed from being brought up alongside three elder brothers, being the 4th out of 5 children, she had to get creative in order to receive attention and over the years has become rather imaginative. Despite her apparent rashness, Violetta is skillfull and has the ability to get herself out of pressing situations. She can be quite deceitful when necessary, as she knows how to manipulate others into believing her. One of Violetta's most notable strengths is her unwavering bravery. She boldly throws herself into situations in order to aid and protect others and is immensely protective of those close to her and has no issue defending them until the end. Violetta's devotion to those around her proves how undeniably compassionate and kindhearted she is.


              Weaknesses: Violetta can come across as flippant and capricious, as she has an inability to take certain situations seriously. She may laugh at an inappropriate time, or completely disregard a consequential situation. Violetta is also reckless, impulsive, and at times, thoughtless. She often makes decisions without proper contemplation or analysis or without considering possible consequences. In this way, she may be perceived as juvenile. Furthermore, Violetta has an undesirable tendency to act on emotion, even if she attempts to conceal her feelings completely. Violetta is mischievous and is consistently finding herself in dire situations although she is cunning enough to get herself out of them (for the most part). Lastly, Violetta can be hotheaded and impetuous at times as she may lash out on people who harm her or her loved ones. Like an Ursaring, she is relatively docile but may be aggressive if continually provoked..


              History: Violetta was born and raised in Snowpoint city. She has 3 older brothers, Indigo, Raven and Jett, and a younger sister named Lilac. Violetta's mother, Vianne, was a famous pokemon coordinator back in her early twenties, winning the esteemed Grand Festival a total of two times. She has been the biggest influence on Violetta, adamantly encouraging her to follow her dreams. Her father, Sterling, works in the mines located in Oreburgh city and is devoted to his job, meaning that he was solemnly home when Violetta was growing up. Due to this, Vianne raised her five children single-handedly, ensuring that they were all fed and clothed at all times. Violetta is immensely close with her mother and resides at home in order to assist her mother in taking care of her younger sibling, Lilac. The Marseille family is tight-knit and Violetta is close with all of her siblings, as they helped to raise and take care of one another. As of late, Vianne has been insistent that Violetta leaves and embarks on a journey as a coordinator, ensuring her daughter that she'll be fine on her own. Violetta is initially reluctant but her ambitiousness gets the best of her and so she complies.


              Goals: Violetta dreams of becoming a top pokemon coordinator and she has minimal interest in pokemon battles. She also wants to learn about different types of pokemon in general and she desires to travel around Sinnoh and explore the diverse region.

              Name: Soren Garreth
              Age: 18
              Gender: Male

              History:

              Spoiler:


              "Who are you?"

              "... Are you... alone as well?"

              "I see... so that's how it is. I'm sorry, I don't really understand what that's like."

              "And yet... impossibly..."

              "I feel... a great pain, the same as yours."

              "...in a way, you could teach me couldn't you?"

              "The one thing these tomes never could."

              "Let's go... Ciel."





              Strengths:
              - Tactical
              Since a young age, Soren has had a gift for tactful thinking. Rushing in and getting ahead of oneself isn't conductive to success and he knows this better than anyone. Soren considers himself especially skilled in formulating effective long term strategies and enacts them as best he can in his day to day life and the battlefield both, usually to varying degrees of success. He favors a slow and methodical approach to pokémon battling, weighing his teams abilities and moves against those of his opponents carefully before making a decisive move. His preferred style is double battling, as he believes that his pokémon's true power is evident in their bonds with their trainer and fellow pokémon both.

              - Determined
              When the going gets tough, then Soren gets going. Just because a situation amps up in difficulty it doesn't mean it's time to lose your cool. Soren has a cool and focused form of determination and when he sets his mind to a goal he won't stop pursuing it until he succeeds or confirms it to be impossible at the current point in time. He considers this trait of his personality to be infectious and does his best to convince others to adopt his mindset. Every person and pokémon has an untold potential locked away, it only takes a little dedication to see it realized.

              - Studious
              Soren is a bookworm by nature and has read hundreds of books since he first learned to read, from modern day novellas of fantastic tales, to dusty old tomes of battle strategies, it's a very rare event to find Soren without some old hardback in his arms. Due to his frequent reading, he is astoundingly knowledgeable for his age and level of field experience when it comes to pokémon and travelling, he can identify most known species of pokémon and their types from as little as a silhouette and in times of need, he could easily locate the most likely spot for a medicinal berry to grow nearby. The true benefits of his retention show themselves during battle however, Soren's slow and steady approach to combat is one bespoke of great preparedness and knowledge of both his and his opponent's strategies. At present, Soren himself carries around a book he himself hopes to publish one day, a blank set of pages where he writes observations, strategies and summaries of his travels.

              Weaknesses:
              - Awkward
              Social situations and Soren are not always the best combination. While he tends to be friendly enough and enjoys the prospect of keeping close friends, embarrassment is an emotion that easily gets to him. His face bursts as red as a voltorb and his words come out fumbled and lacking direction... sometimes at even the slightest compliment or a line of thought pulled directly from his own head! He has a unique talent for pushing others to express themselves and embrace their feelings... and yet he finds it oddly difficult to follow his own advice.

              - Sleep-Deprived
              A combination of nights spent awake reading and night terrors he's suffered from since he was a young child, Soren gets far less sleep than he should and this can show sometimes in his appearance and behavior. Dark circles under the eyes are common and often noticeable against his pale skin, his movements can be sluggish and clumsy and occasionally he can slur his words if he talks too quickly. In the worst case scenarios, Soren is liable to fall asleep while out in the open on any flat surface he rests upon for too long.

              - Cold
              In Soren's eyes, sometimes the world can become to suffused with strategies and numbers, to the point where in the heat of battle he can forget himself and his surroundings. While not exactly a "darker side", Soren has a persona where he becomes so determined and focused on the success of his ideas and goals that he can forge the affect his actions can have on the people around him. His pokémon and his allies, will always come first, but Soren might not realize the fear he might instill within the people he cares about in his efforts to protect them.




              Starter Pokémon: Swablu

              Nickname: Ciel

              Moveset: Peck, Sing, Safeguard, Disarming Voice, Mist, Dragon Rush

              What are your goals?:
              Soren's goal is to find a purpose amidst a crazy and bustling world. He believes that destiny is the purpose we find for ourselves, the route we choose to follow gladly is the one we were always meant to walk. Pursuing the gym challenge, engaging in pokémon contents, exploring the world and making friends and foes along the way. Soren wants to experience everything life has to offer, fully confident that along the way his destiny will be found.

                Gender: Male

                Appearance:
                Spoiler:
                Pay no attention to his clothing, as I couldn't find a better one with this character.

                Sora is toned and fit. He tries to stay smaller, weight wise, but still healthy, so that he can move more freely when taking photos of pokemon. Sora normally wears clothing that allows him to move around easily. Depending on the environment, he will change his clothing so that he can sneak closer to pokemon with a lower chance of being detected. He doesn't like loose fitting clothes unless it is a jacket. This is mainly because, loose clothing can easily get snagged on branches, bark, and thorns when taking photos.


                History:
                Spoiler:
                Originally from the Kalos Region, Sora grew up in Couriway Town with his family until he was about 9 until a tragic event took place, changing his life. He and his parents were on vacation in a cabin in the mountains. Everything had been going well until a blizzard had come through and caused an avalanche, destroying most of the cabin, sparring him, but not his parents. He had returned home and his Uncle had told him about why his parents were actually up there, and it was take photos of wild pokemon that were harder to find. His uncle told him that it was their dream to one day take a picture of every pokemon. He stayed with his uncle's family until he was ready to travel, taking up the dream that his parents had.


                Strengths: Because of what happened when he was younger, he has become very independent and has studied a lot about how to survive in the wilderness. He is determined to do whatever it takes to finish his parents' dream. Having a brush with death has also made him far braver than he once was.

                Weaknesses: Even though he is brave, he has trouble being around Ice-Type pokemon for one reason or another. Sometimes he will go through spells of depression when something reminds him of his father or mother. When it comes to sight, he doesn't like not being able to see, this is because there was no way to see when the Blizzard stopped them from seeing the avalanche which would had saved his parents if they could have seen it coming.



                Starter Pokémon: Fletchling
                Nickname: N?A
                Moveset: Tackle, Quick Attack, Peck, Agility and Overheat

                What are your goals?: Sora's goal is to finish what his parents started before they died, to make a full picture dex of every pokemon known to man. He also want to become a great Sky Battle Trainer. It would allow him to travel higher than most people and give him the ability to take pictures of pokemon that fly in their natural habitat, the sky.


                I believe this is a little short. Tomorrow I'll see if I can make it longer if needed.

                  Name:
                  Brendan Caulfield
                  Age: 17
                  Gender: Male


                  History

                  Brendan was raised, and has lived a rather uneventful life as an only child between Twinleaf, his true hometown, and Sandgem, where he's currently staying.
                  His family owns some fields near Twinleaf, where many berries and vegetables are grown, and a restaurant near Sandgem's seashore where all of these products are used to create great meals, for both humans and Pokèmon. Because of this, he's frequently travelling from one town to the other and helping out his parents with their business - for example, by gathering berries or being a waiter during high season.
                  As Sandgem is a popular tourist destination, Brendan has the opportunity to meet many new people, both when he's working and when he's not. Of course, among them there are many trainers with different Pokémon - from young trainers with the likes of Shinx and Starly to veterans carrying powerful partners like Tyranitar. It doesn't matter if Brendan isn't a trainer: he'd still watch Pokémon battles in awe and try to learn a thing or two about them.
                  So, thanks to his family's business and his interest in Pokémon, Brendan has had many chances to find new friends. He gets along with many of his peers, from both Twinleaf and Sandgem Town, but also has some pen friends from other regions, who once were customers of his family's restaurant.

                  Appearance

                  Brendan is 6' tall and fairly well built - not because he plays a certain sport in particular, but because he rides the bike very often to get around and sometimes helps his family with the fields they own. He has blue eyes and brown hair, that he usually cuts regularly.
                  While sometimes he wears formal outfits (for example, during important occasions or when working as a waiter), he's usually seen wearing more casual clothes. Something that Brendan can't do without, however, is a scarf - he always uses one when the weather gets colder.

                  Strengths

                  In short, Brendan likes to make new friends. He's outgoing and eager to start a new conversation and, while he's not known for his sense of humor or his jokes, he tries to make up for it in loyalty. Brendan does his best to keep in touch with his acquaintances, to comfort them when times get rough, and in general to be a person they can count on.
                  Moreover, staying both in front of and behind the restaurant's kitchen doors has also taught him to keep secrets quite well: another trait that - in his mind, at least - should be quite appreciated.
                  If words fail, Brendan can always count on his cooking ability, which he honed by trying to recreate the restaurant's specialties and experiment with them. He knows many kinds of fruits and berries, how to gather them, and how to use them on Pokémon - but he can also make meals for people, like fruit salads. Give Brendan an actual kitchen, and he'll pull off some more complicated food as well!

                  Weaknesses

                  Speaking of food, he can be quite picky about it, especially when it comes to ingredients. Specifically, he won't complain if a berry is slightly ruined, and use it regardless - what drives him crazy is food made badly or obtained industrially. That means, don't give him bright blue candies covered in sugar!
                  Brendan's arguably biggest weakness, however, has to do with his friends as well. In fact, he believes he's still to find a "best friend" that will stay close to him no matter what (and yes, that applies to romance as well). He also thinks that Pokémon could be the solution to this, as a trainer always travels with them by his or her side: so, Brendan will often refrain from trading Pokémon or letting them stay with other trainers, acting very protective towards them.
                  This belief of still having to find a best friend is tied with many other traits of Brendan's behavior, though. For example, in bad situations Brendan will often overthink or lack initiative - he'll often fall back on his friends' suggestions and put them before his own ideas, in order not to hurt their feelings. After all, his life has been relatively happy - he usually thinks - so his friends must know better.

                  Goals

                  There are many reasons why Brendan would want to start such an adventure.
                  First of all, he'd get to know himself better: as obvious as that might sound, it's actually very helpful for someone like Brendan. He'd work on his lack of initiative, he'd learn to distinguish great friends from normal friends, and would find out if it's better to keep working in his family's business, or pursue his passion for Pokémon training.
                  Second of all, he'd finally obtain his own Pokémon, after spending such a long time watching other people battling in Sandgem Town, near his restaurant. Not to mention, he'd get to explore the entire Sinnoh region: that is, a lot of places that he's never been to but that he's heard of multiple times, because of the tourists he met in Sandgem.
                  And finally, by travelling with other trainers he'd have a big opportunity to find a "best" friend. Sometimes Brendan would wander why some people are so close to each other and to their Pokémon, and why it's not really the case for him. Yes, it could be a wrong belief, but it's one more reason for Brendan to start this journey and see for himself what bonds he's capable of creating...

                  Do you tink you can trim him down? Like advanced hearing, and agility.. doesn't really seem like a good fit for a pokemo nRP such as this.
