Let's see if I can do this right...
Spoiler:

Name: Bruno Dillinger

Gender: Male

Age: 13 y/o

Hometown: Saffron City

Appearance: He has black and shoulder lenght hair that he usually ties in a ponytail. He wears hoodies, black jeans and sporty shoes, most of his clothes are black colored. He has the average height and he isn't that strong physically speaking, but he makes that up with his high intelligence. Overall, he is very plain-looking, were it not for his long hair he could easily go unnoticed.

Family:
Maya Dillinger (Mother): She was a Pokemon Coordinator who won many Master Rank contests in Hoenn becoming a highly famous person around the place, of course, just as any famous person, journalists would bother her the entire time in order to get an interview. In an attempt to escape from the press she traveled to the Kanto Region, arriving in the international harbor of Vermilion where she was spoted by a young trainer called Francine "The Siren" Cormac who invited her to stay with her and her husband until she found a new place in Saffron. When she started living in Saffron, she met Harold Dillinger, a man who used to work in Saffron's Department Store as a security guard who later became her husband. Some months after their wedding, they had their only son, Bruno.
However, just as in any big city, Saffron was plagued by crime; when Bruno was about ten years old, his father has framed by a crime he didn't commit, losing his job and sentencing him to many years of prison; he is still in jail and the witness who framed him had left Saffron days later. They also have a pet Meowth called Jackpot because I really do love cats.

Harold Dillinger (Father): He was a security guard from Saffron's Department Store, who was framed in a crime he didn't commit. He's currently in prison. The witness whose testimony was crucial for the final veredict disappeared from the city without living a single trace.

Jackpot (Pet): A kantonian Meowth who likes shiny and round objects. I really love cats.

Recuring Characters (so far):

Deborah "Debbie" Cormac: A cheerful girl from Vermilion and Bruno's childhood friend. She is also a rookie trainer from Cape College. She's the only daughter of Francine and Drake Cormac. Her mother is a good friend of Maya Dillinger and used to be a well known pokemon trainer who thanks to her beauty and ace pokemon, Primarina, was given the name of "The Siren". Her father is the Captain of the S.S. Kingdra, a ship in charge of importing and exporting resources across Pallet City, Cinnabar Island and The Sevii Islands. Deborah and Bruno met each other when both were 3 years old in one of the many meetings between Francine and Maya, they've been friends since that day and Debbie's one of the few persons Bruno feels comfortable with... even if she gets annoying at times. She likes helping her father with his job as a sailor by doing some of the heavylifting, so she's pretty strong for a girl her age.

Brieff Story: Bruno never had any remote interest in pokemon battling and being a trainer at first, however, after his dad was unfairly arrested, Bruno thought that if he became a trainer, he could travel the region by himself, and then he could find the real culprit and prove that his father was innocent all along, opening his father's case again.
When Professor Palm visited him in Saffron he wasn't sure about giving him the pass to the Trainer School due to his apathetic attitude and his apparent indifference towards being a professional pokemon trainer, but when Bruno told him his goal was to prove his father's innocence, he saw the determination he believed every pokemon trainer must have.

Personality: He's not a good talker and gets nervous easily around most people (specially people older than him), being there a few exceptions (Debbie and his father, for example). He's a fast thinker, with above-average intelligence with academic stuff, but a really good strategist when it comes to single battles, but not much when it comes to tagging with other people. He likes seeing the rational and logical part of every situation he encounters himself in, which ends with him very pretty pesimistic most of the time. He usually stays quiet, talking only what's necessary and when it's necessary. He's very observant and analytical. Bruno also has difficulty with expressing his emotions, which makes people think he is an apathetic and egocentrical person until they meet him. He has no preference in pokemon as long as they are easy to train and don't make him run too much.

Dreams or Aspirations: He wants to become a professional trainer so he could be able to travel around the entire region and use his reputation as a pokemon trainer to re-open his dad's case. Once that is done, he wants to become a private detective in Kanto so he can make sure no other incident like that happens again.

Hobbies: He likes playing with Jackpot and enjoys taking care of it. He also likes solving puzzles and do whatever activity that make him think a lot. Another thing he finds himself doing a lot, though he doesn't like calling it a hobby is reading other people's actions over the slightest thing they do, he could see what someone was doing an hour ago or what they usually do just by the way they are moving or their current clothing, however those predictions aren't always correct and he's not that good at reading personalities.

Theme Song: Hard choice, ngl. Probably this one:



Starter: Gospel/Gastly (Male), special move: Hyper Voice

Roleplay Sample:

Spoiler:
Bruno entered the Detention Center's visitors room and sat quietly as the warden at the other side brought his father in. The room didn't look much different than the ones in the movies he had seen before; it was a narrow but tall room, it had a few small fenced windos at the top of the left and right walls, it had grey walls and they were made of pure concrete and didn't appear to be clean at all. Standing at his back, there were two wardens, they almost looked the same and didn't seem as if they could listen to the conversation.
His father sat down and smiled while he grabbed the small phone to talk to him, and Bruno did the same.
"Hi, dad." He said in a low voice.
"How are you, son?"
"I'm... fine. Just stopping by for my weekly visit. Mom's here as well, but the warden didn't let her pass. You know how it is, only one person at the time."
"Yeah, I know." There was a short silence, but his dad broke it by asking "How's everything at home? How's Jackpot?"
"Jackpie is fine. Making a mess in the house as always, but he is doing fine." Bruno said as he chuckled, thinking of the other day when Jackpot hid mom's Master Rank Contest ribbon for two months thinking it was one of his coins, she was all nervous and freaked out searching for the ribbon during both months and when she finally gave up with it, Jackpot just took it out under the sofa where he hid many of his coins.
"Ha, ha, ha. Yeah, yeah I imagined so"
"Also, Professor Palm came to visit as well some days ago. I've been accepted in Cerulean's Trainer School!"
"That's great, son! But why the sudden change of heart? I thought you didn't want to do anything with pokemon battling"
"That's right, and I'm still not interesed a lot in it, but I was thinking, maybe if I travel around the region by myself I might find the person who put you here, gather some information and open your case again..."
Once he listened to that, his dad's smile suddenly disappeared.
"Son... Bruno... we've talked about this before."
"I know... but it isn't fair at all."
"Bruno, fair or not I don't want you to interfere in this matter, please. You're my only son, and I don't know what will I or your mother do if something happened to you. You're still a child, after all"
"I know! I know I'm only a child! And I get that you're worried about me! But I too worry about you and I want you to return home with us!" he said with teary eyes "I may not be the strongest kid around, but if I have the chance to do things right and change things for good then I think I have to do it. We miss you, dad."
His dad started crying.
"You're just like your mother, aren't you? Once you make a decision, there's nothing holding you back." he calmed down and breathed. "It doesn't make me happy, just so you know. I still don't want you to get into any kind of trouble, but I don't think I'll be able to change your mind at all. I'm still very proud of who you've become."
One of the wardens at the door called Bruno and made some signals saying that the time was over and that it was her mom's turn now.
"I need to go. Listen, I'm going to take you out of here. I love you, dad."
"I love you too, son."

I still don't know what to put here :rowlyikes:

Personality: He acts as an apathetic and serious kid when he's around people he doesn't know well, but slowly softens up with people he is more confident with like his family or friends. He is very clever and it's said that he has some kind of detective instinct. He is very determined, and it is said that he acts too much like an adult, but on the inside he is still only a child. His adult-like personality has led him to not having much friends of his age.

Dreams or Aspirations: He wants to become a professional trainer so he could be able to travel around the entire region and use his reputation as a pokemon trainer to re-open his dad's case. Once that is done, he wants to become a private detective in Kanto so he can make sure no other incident like that happens again.

Interesting SU! I will warn a little bit to not make him too flawless. Not being very physically strong or socially apt is a sort of common way to justify being intelligent with a vengeance. As long as you'll have fun RPing him, this is perfectly fine for this RP though ^^

Image is actually this fanart of Ruri Kurosaki from yugioh ARC-V with some css filters above, because I'm bad at finding images like this.

Spoiler:

Name: Arianne Chandler
Gender:
Age: 15
Hometown: Cinnabar Island
Appearance
Arianne stands quite tall at barely over 6' (about 1,83 m). She's more on the thinner side, though her years of practicing sports have mitigated this. She is not very pale, though she used to look more tan when she lived in Cinnabar Island (and even then, she'd get sunburnt from time to time).
Her hair is black and, when loose, reaches just past her shoulders - though she prefers to keep it more organized most of the time: her eyes are a much lighter shade of brown instead.
The clothes she will be using throughout the journey are mostly jeans, light sweaters or denim jackets, though she is also considering to carry with her something more apt for the summer season, such as short dresses, t-shirts, short trousers and tops. Her preferred colors for her clothes include black and dark blue (especially for her trousers), but also lighter, pastel colours.
She's already planned out her outfit for the first day of her travel though: black jeans and denim jacket, over a white t-shirt with some red details.
Unlike most of the girls she's seen around the college, she never strays from using backpacks to carry her stuff - her favourite being a quite large gray backpack with purple stitching.
Family
While the girl's family has lived in Cinnabar for generations, it only became a high wealth household relatively recently, when Arianne's father and some friends of his opened a small inn for tourists to stay overnight. Over the course of many years the inn has been expanded to a very renowned hotel: now Arianne's parents really want her, an only child, to carry on their legacy - and this is starting to become a cause of conflict.
Brief history
Arianne could only join the College at 13 years old, when after some failed attempts Professor Palm actually persuaded the girl's parents to let her leave Cinnabar Island. In fact, she never wanted to continue on her father's path, and always dreamed to escape her remote hometown instead.
She started to read, and subsequently listen to music or watch TV series and movies, for that very reason - and her interest was fueled even more by all the tourists she would see walking around Cinnabar Island. When it comes to school, she was on par with most of her peers - but whereas her parents wanted her to focus on maths, Arianne's favourite subjects were literature and, of course, geography.
All these things aside, though, Arianne has lived a quite sheltered and comfortable life in Cinnabar. Sure, the mere thought of living close to a volcano was enough to keep her alert, but no eruptions actually happened during the course of her life.
Personality
Arianne is, in most situations, quite shy and taciturn. She's not the one who usually starts conversations or likes to be part of large crowds - in fact, she only had few close friends in Cinnabar. Admittedly, growing up in a wealthy family made her fairly lazy and disconnected from reality: she in fact might appear air headed and indifferent to a lot of things, at first glance. Furthermore, she tends to run from responsibilities and from other people's commands, something that could get her in trouble at the college.
However, when she's more at ease with the people around her and the environment she's in, Arianne is more open and talkative - overall, a nice person to have around. Despite how she might appear, she's good at heart and cares about not only her friends, but also about all the places and things that help her feel good. Finally, she is quite capable physically and has good stamina - but doesn't like actual demanding tasks as much as practicing sports without any second purpose, and - since she was raised in Cinnabar Island - is very sensitive to cold. Going outside during winter is hard without a parka, a scarf and a woolen beanie.
Dreams or aspirations
Prior to this adventure, Arianne's biggest dream was to leave Cinnabar Island and explore what lied beyond the sea - a feat that she has already achieved partially. She doesn't really know or care about what will happen next, as long as Pokémon remain an important aspect of her life. And on a more specific note, Arianne has always wanted to fly on the back of a Pokémon!
On a more serious note, though, Arianne's desire to explore outside Cinnabar can be seen as running from her responsibilities and from her family to live life in her own terms - and this travel may as well be the perfect opportunity to learn more about herself and accomplish her goal. In short, she knows who she isn't but doesn't really know who she is.
Hobbies
Arianne's most notable hobbies are reading and listening to music, but also swimming. The sea and the Pokémon which lived there have always peaked her interest, as the sea is what separates Cinnabar Island from every other land. Moreover, songs and books let the girl know more about outside Cinnabar Island and acted as a way to escape, even if it was just fiction. During her stay at the college, Arianne tried to pick up different hobbies that could give her similar feelings. For example, she started to explore areas off the beaten paths or to find Pokémon she'd never seen before. She also tried her hand at cycling and skateboarding, not because it was necessary but because she considered that interesting and fun to try. One of the skills that she would like to learn instead, is how to work with Pokémon to solve... practical problems. For example, how to use the battlefield to her advantage, how to surf and fly with Pokémon, maybe even how to help other people who are in danger. She's just not quite there at the moment!
Theme song
OOC: I actually tried to find songs that could inspire me to write more about Arianne, rather than coming up with a theme song once the character was done. So, since I'm now so indecisive about what's the best theme song for Arianne, have three!

Spoiler:

David Alexander

Gender: Male
Age: 13
Hometown: Vermilion City

Appearance


David is a 13 year old boy with blond hair and blue eyes. He's a short kid, but he does have long arms, and he's taller than his younger brother. He is kind of average in build, so he's not too scrawny, and not too stocky either. To elaborate on some of his characteristic qualities-- David has a few scrapes and nicks on his knees, most of it from playing around in the streets of Vermilion City. To top it all off, he currently has a band-aid on his cheek from cutting himself with a thorny bush, because he was trying to retrieve a frisbee.

When it comes to what he wears everyday, David likes long-sleeves, striped shirts, cargo shorts, and sneakers. He is open to wearing any sort of costume if a role requires it, but other than that, he doesn't have a lot of knowhow with how to dress himself. Thus, he sticks to what he's used to.

Family


Coming from a middle-class family, David grew up in a relatively normal household. David's father Peter is an electrical engineer, and his mother Jean is a stay-at-home mom. He has a younger brother named Thomas, who is three years David's junior. Funnily enough, David picks on Thomas often, and used to make him cry a lot. Apart from those four, the family used to have a family pet, Peter's female Arcanine. She was blessed with a puppy, a Growlithe, shortly before passing away.

Brief history


David joined the school at age 11. Before that, he went to an elementary school in Vermilion City. As a kid, David used to want to become an engineer like his dad, but his parents quickly realized from his performance in school that he wasn't very smart. Thankfully, he had a passion for other things: the arts, and Pokemon battles. As a result, he was encouraged by his father to pursue those instead, and hearing that from his dad, David was happy to oblige. As a kid, he would play with his brother and his neighbors often. He took singing lessons, but he wasn't very good at it. He also played small parts in community theatre, and in those roles he did pretty good, making his parents proud.

When it comes to his performance in school, it's a bit of a miracle that he was allowed to go on the Pokemon journey after just two years, considering his lack of book smarts. People have low expectations of him passing on his first try, but he is determined to do his best.

Personality


David is a pretty friendly kid-- passionate, energetic, and ready for anything. As a byproduct of his fun-loving nature, he's kind of a class clown. He tries to make his peers and his teachers laugh, sometimes cheering up the mood when the class gets too serious. He also cares about his grades a lot, even though he's not very smart. This is a testament to his determination to do good, and to make his parents proud.

Unfortunately, that's where David's good qualities stop. On being a class clown, David thinks he's funny, but oftentimes he's not, to the point where others find him annoying. When it comes to things that upset him, like losing a game or being treated unfairly, David is angered easily. It gets hard for people to deal with these issues of his, because he doesn't know how to calm down when these situations happen. Getting a bad grade in school, which happens often, really upsets him. He cares way too much about what other people think of him, including what his parents think of him. He strives for other people's approval. And to make matters worse, he is also incredibly indecisive. Last, but certainly not the least, he does not have a good moral compass yet. He would pick fame and fortune over people who actually care about him, often hurting people in the process. Suffice it to say, he still has a lot of growing up to do.

Hobbies


David likes adventure and anything that gets him active. He likes track and field, basketball, and Pokemon ping pong. When it comes to the arts, the kid is a horrible singer, but he loves to sing anyway. He has pretty decent acting chops for a boy his age. For example, he can cry on cue, and he has found a lot of use for this in the small roles that he's played. Finally, he loves to eat, which complements his venturesome hobbies.

Dreams or aspirations


David wants to become the most successful actor in Unova one day, on top of being the best Pokemon trainer in the world. He also wants to do musicals in between movies, if given the chance. He is a bit scared of failing the Pokemon journey, but he has faith that his determination would overcome anything. This includes the possible shortcomings he'll experience, considering his mediocre performance in school.

Theme song


Spoiler: Gusty Garden Galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy

Starter Pokémon



Growlithe (M)
Bite / Roar / Ember / Morning Sun

Growlithe is the son of his dad's old female Arcanine, and became the Alexanders' only family pet after its mother passed away. David ended up bringing Growlithe to school in Cerulean, becoming its trainer. Growlithe misses its mom, as well as Peter, Jean, and Thomas, but is willing to accompany David and become his partner. It's still a young pup and has little experience in battling.

Roleplay sample


"Hey, no fair!"

Thomas tries to reach for his older brother's raised arm, but David remains steady with a smirk on his face. "If you want it back, Tommy, go buy us some ice cream."

"Come on, David, I just want my plushie!"

"Hey, mom gave you money for us to buy two ice cream cones. You can do that, right?"

Thomas frowns and tries one last time to reach his Pikachu plushie, to no avail. He looks down and sighs before walking away, hand in his pocket.

David looks at his brother and smiles, feeling very proud of himself. He sits down the gazebo and stares at the water. The sea south of Vermilion is still as serene as ever. There are no cruise liners in sight, so the horizon is unblocked from view. The sun is shining bright in the early afternoon. There is a slight breeze that David can feel brushing his cheeks, slightly ruffling his blond hair. This is the perfect weather to eat ice cream with his brother. He wishes he could live here again, but Cerulean City is where he goes to school now. In some ways he's only mean to his brother because he rarely gets to interact with Thomas anymore. David doesn't admit it, but he cares a lot about Thomas. He looks at Thomas's Pikachu plush in fondness.

A lass and her Meowth passes by, seemingly enjoying the good weather. The Meowth makes eye contact with David, and David acknowledges it with a smile. It smiles back and meows, before hurrying towards its trainer, who was too busy gazing at the ocean. The sound of the waves calms David, enough to make him feel drowsy. Shortly after, he hears his brother running back with two ice cream cones slightly melted on his hands. This effectively shakes off his drowsiness. David reaches for one and thanks Thomas, who sits next to him and wipes his free hand with his shorts. Thomas takes his Pikachu plushie with his still-sticky free hand and continues eating his ice cream. David starts to eat his.

Vanilla. He wonders if Casteliacones taste even better than this, because Vermilion's ice cream is already pretty good by his standards. It has to be, since it's the land of PokeStar Studios and Musicals. When he becomes a famous actor, he'll buy all the Casteliacones he would want. David comforts himself with the thought.

Here it is!
Cute character! Will be fun to see how he fares with his Growlithe. Normally you were not supposed to know your starter bforehand, but perhaps Palm saw how much Growlithe meant to David and let him keep it at school and use it for his journey. So that's fine :) And Morning Sun as the move, as we just said on Discord.

Short or long posts are fine, and feel free to write about battling other rookie trainers or capturing the wild pokémon. I recommend that after you have done something that you assume might earn you levels (mainly battling or using moves somehow), you end your post and wait for me to hand out levels. I will do this in short GM posts in the IC thread :)

Until we're full cast, please don't do the Nugget Bridge quest yet.

"I'm gonna do it all! Nothing will hold me back!"

Melody Hughes / Female / 15 Years Old / Celadon Town





Appearance

Melody stands at a height of roughly 4'9", making her quite a bit short for her age. She has long, chocolate brown hair that easily reaches down to her legs and bright olive-green eyes. Rather than let her hair hang loose and free, Melody prefers to wear her hair up into two twintails, often with the most of her hair being tucked into two rather messy looking buns. A bit of a tomboy at heart, Melody very seldom will wear anything resembling a dress or sandals. The girl instead feels more comfortable wearing things such as shorts, sneakers, and various tank tops. In fact the only thing truly feminine about her style of dress are the several piercings that adorn her left ear. Melody keeps all of her training goods packed away into a dark green backpack.

Family

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

Brief History

Born and raised in Celadon Town, Melody lived a somewhat happy life with her twin sister Emily, who happened to be her older by roughly five minutes. The two girls lived in the town with their mother, Veronica, who made a living as a nurse in the town's Pokémon Center. They also lived with their father, Clifford Hughes, who happened to have somewhat of a following as a famous, albeit local, Pokémon trainer within the Kanto region.

The family was always a very well-off household. While they weren't exactly rich by any means, the combined income from their mother along with Cliff's work as a professional Pokémon trainer always helped to provide a warm place for the girls to sleep and food in their belly. Melody and Emily took after their parents in very unique ways. Emily, quiet and reserved, was always interested in her mother's work. She loved visiting the Pokémon Center whenever she could, eventually to the point where all the staff inside knew her by a first name basis. She began to dream about treating and helping various injured Pokémon across the region, and it was only natural that she eventually began to put those dreams into focus as she began to study at the renown Cape College. Melody, on the other hand, began to take after her father. She became absolutely addicted to the thought of becoming a famous Pokémon trainer just like her old man. She would often daydream about traveling across the region, taking on all sorts of challenges and trainers, and even taking on the Indigo League itself to become a Pokémon champion! Needless to say that when she found out her sister was going to be enrolling within the college, Melody begged and pleaded to do the same to help make her own dreams a reality.

Unfortunately, things did not remain as happy and carefree as the two twins would have liked for too much longer. Shortly before the duo would have began their educations at Cape College, their father simply just... up and vanished without so much as a word to his family. Their mother was absolutely devastated and the twins were beside themselves with concern. Why in the world would their father just walk out on them like that? The family would soon get their answers. It wasn't long before Clifford Hughes would begin to make waves throughout the Pokémon trainer world. He began to make more and more appearances in various tournaments and competitions scattered throughout the Kanto region and his performance in them began to increase as well. The devastating part however, was when their old man denied even having a family, let alone a wife. It was absolutely crushing to Melody's mother and Emily took it very hard as well. Melody however, was fueled with a burning anger that she had never experienced before. She quickly came to detest her father, just the very mention of his name often being enough to put her in a foul mood.

While most would think this would dampen her dreams of becoming a Pokémon trainer, it only served to increase Melody's drive. Melody vowed that not only would she surpass him in skill, but she would find him, deal him a humiliating defeat and force him to go back home to his family where he belonged.

Personality

A generally positive thinker with energy to spare. Melody is one to approach every challenge with a smile and a will to never give up, no matter how difficult it may seem. Melody is generally a very friendly girl, always willing to greet everyone with a smile and lend an ear to anyone who may need it. A tomboy by nature, Melody always spent a good deal of time outside playing games like baseball instead of playing with dolls and the like. Because of this, she prides herself on being tough and a bit stronger than most girls her age. Because of her hyper active tendencies, Melody often has a hard time managing to keep quiet and still at points. This has been a problem for her as long as she can remember, often getting her into trouble when she was in school for not being able to keep still during class. She also has a habit to start rambling away while talking, letting her imagination get the best of her as she lets the endless possibilities of something run through her mind. Always one to be a bit on the clumsy side, sneaking about is not her strong suit by any means. Melody is absolutely terrified of heights.

Aspirations

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

Hobbies

Melody's hobbies include anything in the great outdoors. Always being so full of energy, the girl adores spending as much time as she can out there. In partiuclar, she absolutely adores going on bike rides and swimming. Oddly enough, Melody is an avid artist. She is known quite often to unwind after a busy day by just doodling away in her sketchbook shortly before turning in for the night.

"Are you ready?! It's time for the fun to start!"



Name: Noel Yukino
Age: 15
Gender: Female
Trainer Class: Harlequin
Place of Birth: Saffron City

Childhood/Family Life: The Yukino group were few of the best entertainers in all of Kanto. They became a world wide name, with the Yukino family at the front of it all. Noel herself was born and raised in the city of Saffron, the only child of her mother and father. Her mother and father were entertainers who did stuff like magic tricks, or acts that were humorous! Growing up, she loved watching her father and mother perform with their own pokemon, and it deeply inspired her to one day, perform in front of a crowd of her own, with her own partner pokemon.

While her dad and her mom are quite proud of her new goal, they also pondered, why entertain people? For if Noel didn't know her reasons for why she wants to entertain people, she could never obtain her goal. Turning 12, she decided to enter Cape College. Perhaps if she were to learn the in and outs of becoming a trainer, she would also become skilled enough to entertain as much people as she can. Though, her own reasons of becoming a entertainer were only added to another question of why she want to become a pokemon trainer. For now, her sights were set on becoming stronger, and becoming a performer.


Personality/Virtues/Skills: A fun-loving and energetic girl, Noel is very theatrical and loves to entertain people, traits he seems to inherited from both her parents. She idolizes her parents, and the rest of the Yukino group very much and wishes to become an entertainer like them one day. Noel has two sides of her: as to what she calls a "entertainer persona", Noel acts like a fool to have fun doing certain tasks and while she interacts with people. She uses quick catchphrases like "It's time for the fun to start!" as a means to transition to her fun loving persona. However, from this, people are often baffled, and believe Noel doesn't take things in life too seriously because of her buffoonery.

Deep down however, part of Noel's real self has a good deal of less self-confidence. She has a habit of shying away or hiding her face whenever she does something embarrassing or if something were to break her confidence. She can easily fall into a state of depression from this, and it can take her a while to come back from. Still, as she tries to mature, she will always come back to her feet eventually.

Noel likes Fairy type pokemon especially; they were all cute, and flashy; perfect for a show! She also enjoys baking sweets, and sewing new outfits for herself, or for anyone else that needs it. Make-up is one of her passions too; after all, only the right sort of make up is necessary to look good!

Are you still accepting? I might like to join with Cubone if you are.
Always nice to see you in a journey rp :3 I was content with the players we had, but actually I don't think it's a bother if we are slightly more players in this one. People can choose whether they want to mostly solo post, or team up and interact a lot. So yes, I shall reserve you! Make sure to have your SU up as soon as you can, as we've already started posting IC.

If there is anyone else who would like to submit a SU, feel free to do so, as I opened up one additional spot too. We have Bulbasaur, Pikachu and Tangela left, but I can perhaps be persuaded to change those if you would really prefer other starters ^^

Name : Edward Carter
Age : 15
Gender : Male
Hometown : Lumiose City, Kalos


Quotes
"Why does everyone thinks i'm a delinquent!?"
"Do one more thing against my friends and you're toast."
"Pokemon Researchers says we have to completely rely on past objective data instead of current subjective outlook, but even data could change by the passage of time you know."


Appearance
Edward is a tall boy, with a height of 5' 10", messy brown hair, and light blue eyes, he also has a very toned build for his age. He use a black leather jacket with black fur collar and a long sleeved white T-Shirt. To complement it he wears a black pants and a silver belt. He also wear boots, blue sunglasses and black handwatch. This appearance made him look like a delinquent, but when asked why he didn't change it. He answered "The vibe around it feels kind of cool you know." He also carries a black backpack on his journey.

Family and Friends (and Sensei)
I'll also add a brief description
Dwayne Carter : Father, current E4 of Kalos region, Master of Dragon type, currently on a vacation leave from the league. Pretty carefree yet a loving father.
Sheila Carter : Mother, former head researcher of a lab, retires early to become a housewife. Pretty resourceful with machines just as she is resourceful with yarn.
Master Lee : Owns a dojo in Lumiose, Edward's sensei in martial arts. Oftenly berates Edward if he skips on his training, also a source of advice for Edward other than both of his parents.

They'll probably be on some of the posts through phone call or something available to contact overseas people, although i'm tempted to make Dwayne meets with his son at one point, but eh it's still to be determined

And the recurring characters, i present to you
Anna Carter : Little Sister, 14 years old. A cheerful and bright young lady, she's also a student at Cape College also trying to complete her own journey around Kanto. She has a female horsea nicknamed Aqua as her partner. Like his brother he enjoys cute stuffs and also in lesser degree quite analytical like his brother, unfortunately she's not that adept at tinkering machinery. She doesn't have any preference in pokemon, but she dislikes disobedient pokemons. She has a history in gymnastics which made her agile and energetic she still has a complex due to her height of 5'1". Her favorite food is his Brother's chocolate cake. Currently traveling with her classmates Erin and Jim . She really enjoys the company of his brother, because... (Spoiler Alert)
Spoiler:
He was there when she was utterly depressed and feel worthless when she was 8 years old, which is also why she was extremely devastated when the bullying happened to his brother. She also acts very spoiled when she is in vicnity of his brother


Elena Rosewood : Best friend, 15 years old. A quiet and reserved, but kind girl. She's Edward's best friend since their schooling days in Lumiose City, although she had to move out at 12 years old because of his father's job. She failed the entry test to Cape College so she had to enter Safari Academy instead. Her starter partner is a female Eevee. She has short hair and wears glasses, she love reading books and used to discuss about it with Edward in her spare time. She dislike Spinarak and Ariados due to an incident in her childhood. Likes spicy food but is shy to admit it. She still keeps contact with Edward until this day but only through phone calls. (Spoiler Alert)
Spoiler:
She was pretty much the reason Edward was bullied in school back in Lumiose Town. She was often be target of bullies because of her hobby of reading books and the fact she is using glasses get her called various names. When Edward stands up against the bully, instead it was Edward that gets bullied and not her anymore. Although she has a crush on Edward, she feels that she doesn't deserve to say it due to feeling guilty of causing Edward to be depressed at one point of his life. She also didn't know about Edward's transformation after she left Lumiose.


Erin White : Anna's classmate and travelling partner. Her partner is a male Onix. A very reliable person, came from Fuchsia City but choose to enter Cape College instead of Safari Academy since she's bored of her surroundings. Is a person who knew a lot of secret Anna holds since she is also her best friend. Hates cold. Never met Edward before they started journey around Kanto.

Jim Hastings : Anna's travelling partner, a slightly bumbling yet enthusiastic person who loves rain. He had caused a few issue by himself back at the College, but he managed to solve it on his own. He also surprising has quite a high grade at the college considering his personality. He had knew Edward when he was with Anna before. His partner is a Bellsprout.

Brief History
Edward came from Lumiose City in Kalos. He grew up mostly with his sister and his mother, with his father usually take a time off from the league to regularly visit them. Due to growing up mostly with his mother's supervision he learned a lot of skills usually girls excel at like cooking, and cleaning. Back there, he used to be make fun of and humiliated by bullies in his school due to his stature that wasn't so tall back then and also because he used to stand up for other people. He managed to persevere due to support from his family and his few friends, which made him learn martial arts from Master Lee to cope with his anger and depression. In the last year of school he started to get a rapid growth spurt which combined with his martial artist made the bullying stop due to the bullies being too afraid. He then entered the Cape College at 13 alongside his sister, but in Kanto he decides he need a fresh start including new outfit, which in turn made him looks like a delinquent. His lecturers and classmates were initially reluctant to converse with him, as they thought he was a naughty boy, but after conversing and learning more about him they stopped being afraid and starts to enjoy interacting with him. It didn't stop strangers from being scared at his presence though. He is also an eager learner in the academy which made some lecturers take notes on him.

Personality
Contrary to his appearance, Edward is actually a gentle and kind person. He however is a person who prefers listening rather than starts conversation himself, although if he is already comfortable with someone he may talks a lot with that person about himself. He is a person who is analytical and prefer to analyze what he can make of the situation to turn it into low risk, high reward but he sometimes is also too bold on strategies if it can help him win. He is also a responsible person who usually have a really hard time leaving struggling people alone even if he really wants to. He enjoys reading books under a tree while snacking as he found it very relaxing, other than that he actually have a wide variety of skills for everyday life like cooking, cleaning, tinkering machine, washing clothes, etc. Which helps with his popularity in the Cape College's staff circle. He enjoys coffee with milk and variety kinds of bread. But although gentle and is a very hard person to make angry, if his fuse is already lit, you should run quickly as he could wallop a guy until he's passed out. He also has a very good fashion sense for woman clothing as he usually recommend outfits to his sister, not on man's clothing though which he painfully accepts.

Hobbies
Reading books under a tree, Martial arts training, analyzing data, Relaxing while drinking coffee with milk and bread, sightseeing.

Dreams or Aspiration
At first Edward want to be a scientist like his mother. But after he often watched his father in national television, he wants to surpass his father and become a champion himself. After all, he can analyze and do research as much as he wants in the field while raising his pokemons. But even if that never come to fruition, his simpler dream is just to live happily around other people who is just as happy as himself.

Magnemite - Illegal move : Flamethrower
Nickname : Copperfield (I'm crediting you for this idea haha, i actually was confused what should i name it but on my reply you say magnetic wizard and then i think who is a magician famous for levitating tricks so.. yeah..)

Roleplay Sample
"... And Mega Salamence used Draco Meteor! It's a clean sweep for Dwayne Carter!"

The TV was showing a championship tournament at Kalos, it was second round and the opponent was swept cleanly by the mighty dragon pokemon.

"Geez, dad never really hold anything back huh?"

The remark from Edward reaches the ear of her mother that's currently watching besides him

"You do know your father is an Elite Four do you? I'm sure he has some pride to keep, honey." Her mother says while smiling

"You think i can be as tough as dad one day?"

Hearing that, her mother replies.

"Why not? If you train as hard as your father i'm sure you can even beat your dad. Oh, that reminds me. I guess it's time to tell you, you actually need to study at a pokemon school if you want to be a Pokemon Trainer. I actually know a good one, it's called Cape College in the Kanto Region, one of my friends teach there so i guess i can leave you to him if something happens."

"Really? So i have to study again? I thought it was supposed to be easier."

"Haha, i'm sure you can do it honey."

The conversation that was going swimmingly was suddenly interrupted by a figure that suddenly appears behind them.

"Brother, could you sleep together with me?" Says Anna while tugging at her brother's sleeve.

"Anna, you're already 8 i guess it's time for you to start sleeping alone." Edward replies to his tired looking sister

"But.."

With Anna looking sad as she is, Edward then decides to oblige to her request.

"Sigh.. okay Anna.. but just today okay.. you should really try to sleep alone tomorrow. I guess i'll go now Mom, see you tomorrow."

"Okay, have a sweet dreams you two."

Btw, i really do love cats

Name: Vera Hill
Gender: Female
Age: 16
Hometown: Viridian Town

Appearance:

Vera is tall at 5' 10", but very thin. Combined with her pale complexion, she tends to look frail and sick, but her silvery blue eyes burn with strength. Her gray hair reaches past her shoulders, and she casually wears it loose, but puts it up in a bun for more formal occasions. She wears casual clothes (running shoes, slacks, monocolor t-shirts) with her favorite black flannel shirt over top.

Family: Violet Hill, Vera's mother, was once a well-known Contest star and Grass type specialist, now semi-retired. Her father Vincent Hill owns a lumber company that operates in the Viridian Forest. Her younger sister Vanessa is only 10, but her parents already consider her a prodigy who would be attending Cape College already if not for the age restriction.

Brief history: Vera was sick often in her youth, so she tended to spend most of her time at home. Her parents schooled her at home, only making her go to a public school when she was strong enough (coincidentally around the same time her sister was born). Even then she tended to stick to herself, and was an average student. She almost wasn't allowed to attend a trainer's school, despite her begging to go. Her parents finally relented when she was 13, almost too old to begin, her determination finally wearing them down. Knowing she wasn't a very good student she elected to stay for as long as she could, starting her journey later than many others.

Personality: Honest, but straightforward, Vera says what's on her mind without sugarcoating it. She's generally nice, but can also be a little bit catty. (I really do love cats.) This blunt attitude doesn't make her many friends, but she's generally fine with that, seeing friends as a distraction and being generally antisocial. She is determined to prove herself, and is proud of her accomplishments, but acknowledges her shortcomings. She feels that she takes things more seriously than her classmates, and puts in more work and effort than anyone, making her irritable when she doesn't do well. And while she has a hard time relaxing around others, when alone and not busy she savors any quiet moment or bit of fun she can get.

Hobbies: Due to her poor constitution, Vera was never interested in sports or physical activity, and usually spent her days reading or playing games. In the Academy, she found she enjoyed cleaning somewhat, but really liked cooking. She's very interested in food, from Berries to baked goods, both making and eating them.

Dreams or aspirations: Vera has the nonspecific goal of impressing her parents and upstaging her sister, despite her sister not doing anything worth mentioning yet. To this end, she wants to be a famous battler, or a famous Contest star, or anything as long as she's famous. She doesn't know how she'll accomplish that, and doesn't know what to do after if she does.

Theme song: Alessia Cara - Here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YZRPRf84HO4

Starter pokémon: Female Cubone nicknamed Bonnie. Relaxed nature, she tends to just go with the flow. Likes to collect flowers. Her Hidden Power is Grass type, and she inexplicably knows Leaf Blade, surrounding her bone club in a sharp green aura.
Moveset: Growl / Tail Whip / Bone Club / Leaf Blade

Edward Carter
Thank you for the SU! Unfortunately, I do not think you or Edward are a good fit for this RP and set of other players. In particular, Edward doesn't seem like a solid and fully thought through character; he has too many skills and Mary Sue-ish personality traits along with unlikely family and basically zero flaws. I don't feel like I'd know what to expect from him at all. But I hope you will keep enjoying other RPs and perhaps in the future we can RP together :)

Vera Hill
That's an interesting character! Welcome to the RP, you are accepted.

Nice to see her again :3 I will switch up the characters in the list for you when I can.

Both of you (Godzil and Alby) feel free to start posting IC. I'll change the OPs as needed soon enough, but for now your starter movesets are:

So I've been lurking on this for a bit and I know that Sign Up's say they're closed, but since I saw of the last characters were rejected I was hoping that I could hop in on that spot? :o (Sample is still in the works too)

Name: Aubrey Joad
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Hometown: Celadon City

Appearance: https://safebooru.org//samples/2767/sample_fd34d587dc527911145b5ae0ba53b1729d1d583e.jpg?2881671
Standing in at exactly five feet tall, Aubrey's slight figure lends heavily to the perception that she's a delicate farm girl, needing to be coddled. While she may seem fragile and her pale, unblemished skin attributing to this, she does have quite a bit of lean muscle packed on from years of tending to the family ranch. If one were to take a quick glance at her clothes, it would be clear what type of upbringing she had, as she almost always dons a grimy pair of overalls and t-shirts stained with years of caked mud and dirt. However, in honor of her being sent off on her pokemon journey, Aubrey's parents gifted her with a brand new pair of stylish overall shorts, a t-shirt pushed onto them by the Saffron City Mall clerk, and a squeaky clean pair of white high-top sneakers. While this new foray into fashion definitely wasn't something that the girl was quite yet comfortable with, she gladly dons the new outfit out of gratitude to her parents.

Family: The youngest of seven, Aubrey is the runt of quite a litter. Both of her parents are hard-working pokemon breeders and as such needed as many hands around the farm to help as possible. Clive, Johnny, Marie, Elizabeth, Rachel, and Kyle, all still live at home, so the family is a bit crammed into their one-story ranch style home, but they function together as quite the unit. Despite the fact that there are so many of them, every member of the Joad household knows each other inside out and have picked up on each other's idiosyncrasies over their many years together. Clive being the oldest child and at twenty two years of age, is primed to take over the family business one day, but unbeknownst to the family, Aubrey has other plans for the ranch (more on that later). Each child was raised dutifully and are all diligent in their own ways, completing their assigned tasks around the family property as needed. They are a big family, but they are a closer family than most.

Brief History: While the household is extremely tight-knit, it was obvious from very early on that Aubrey was different in many ways. The Joads are hard-working, blue collar folk. They work for their own food, they persevere through hardship, they rise early in the morning, and they lay their heads once the work is through. By no means are they simple people, but schooling was never their strong suit. The children all forwent a formal education in order to stay around the ranch and pitch into the taxing workload that their parents shouldered. Like their parents before them, they learned with their hands, learned from the word's of those showing them how to do things, they learned what they needed to and discarded what seemed to be less important to them. Aubrey was different. From the moment Marie taught her how to read, as she was the only member of the household who could, The runt of the family always had her nose dug into a book, absorbed in learning the in's and out's of how things actually worked. When the family's Herdier fell ill and the tried and true Joad remedies weren't helping the aiding pokemon, ten-year-old Aubrey stepped in with a simple antidote recipe that she had learned from one of her books, and from then on the Joad's new that she deserved a proper education. When the girl reached the age of twelve, her parents contacted Cape College and the last two years of Aubrey's life began to unfold.

Personality: Bright, studious, and intelligent, one wouldn't know Aubrey's true nature until they actually had an in-depth conversation with her. Upon first glance, the girl seems to be ditsy, airheaded, a bit of simple. Her light, flighty southern drawl, and tendency to stare a little too long at things often doesn't help her case, but what appears to be her zoning off into dreamland is in fact merely her observing and taking in the world around her. The young girl has an inquisitive mind, curious about why things are the way they are, and how the world works. It is through answering the many questions she has that she can assist those she cares about, namely her friends, her family, and the pokemon she is charged with. Her motivation for ascertaining all the information that she does, is to help those around her, a stemming of her benevolent nature. She is a bit shy and reserved upon first meeting however, and is not the most open due to some teasing that first occurred during her stay at Cape College, but the country intellect, has a caring and optimistic heart that wants to believe the best in people.

Hobbies: While she won't have much opportunity to do so during her pokemon journey, she has a particular interest in botany and loves tending to gardens, specifically flowers.

Dreams/Aspirations: Aubrey hopes to one day take over the family ranch, usurping Clive in the process. She loves her brother as much as any member of the family, but has always held this dream as she loves the ranch just as much. Her hope is that through the pokemon journey and obtaining her trainer's licence, she will be able to learn more about the care of pokemon so that she may be better qualified to be the head of Joad Ranch.

Roleplay Sample:

Spoiler:
From where the young girl sat on the steps of her ranch home, she could see the last rains of the season come gently, cutting the scarred earth beneath it. The crops would continue out their growth, but by the time it came to yield them, she would be long gone, back in the city, back at her school. Aubrey gave a forlorn sigh. She was forever indebted to her parents' pro-activeness in enrolling her at Cape College, and she loved how much she was getting to learn, yet a part of her missed this life. The long hours picking fresh berries alongside the family Doduo's, stroking a comb through the fur of the pokemon in her charge, the bustling suppers where her family packed around their tiny dinner table, these were the things that life in Cerulean City couldn't provide.

Aubrey shook her head, almost as if to shake the thoughts from her mind. Her parents had gone through so much, and worked too hard to get her into a school with as much prestige as the one they did. Sure the tuition was free, and everything was determined by Professor Palm, but they were the ones that had even sought out the application in the first place. They wanted bigger and better things for their little girl, and she should be grateful for that, not missing the life they wanted her to leave behind. Her gaze wondered over to the family's Herdier beside her, his body splayed out across the top step of the porch. She gave a soft smile to the old pokemon and gave his furry belly a rub. This was what she was missing. A place where she truly felt at home. Here she felt like she could be herself, here she felt competent, here she had people who loved her, here there was no one to call her stupid, or slow, or a bumpkin.

She breath slowed, and she blinked quickly in order to rid herself of the forming tears. The first year at Cape College had been hard for a homebody such as herself. She loved getting to learn, and she had done so much of it in her short time there, but all those big city kids with their big city ideas, made her feel like less than who she was. Lost in her thoughts, Aubrey almost didn't notice the heavy-set body stooping down to sit beside her.

"Everythin' all good, bud?"

Clive's deep, rumbling voice shook her out of her contemplation, prompting a quick smile and nod. "Yeup, just thinkin' through all I gotta pack up for when I'm headin' back to school."

The much larger of the pair gave her a skeptical look, unconvinced by the excuse. "I saw you's had your thinkin' face on, don't you be comin' up with no stories for me. You know I's listen."

Aubrey shook her head and once again stared off towards the fields. She took a moment to gather her thoughts, as she always did before saying anything important. Knowing this about her, Clive also looked to the looming clouds, allowing her the time.

"I's just been missin' home is all, I suppose." The young girl took a breath, shifting her focus towards her brother. "I've been feelin' so bad, cause Ma an' Pa been workin' so hard to get me to that big school, but sometime I just wanna be back here y'know? I feel like I matter here, like I'm good at what I do here, and there sometime I just feel like all them big shot kids be outdoin' me so much..." Her words trailed off, and she looked away. "I dunno, I know it make me ungrateful and all, and I feel bad about it."

A silence stood in the air for a moment and she glanced over to her brother's face to ascertain his thoughts only to find a wide grin that had spread across his face. "Well I be damned, girly, that all that been bothering you?" His booming laugh came hurtling from his chest and even though she didn't know what was so funny, Aubrey couldn't help but smile at the infectious noise.

"Of couse, you's gonna be homesick, sissy, everyone get homesick, thas not just you. All them big shot city kids, think they betteh than you, but they not. I know I got the smartest sistuh in the whole damn region, and they can eat they heart out if they thinkin' otherwise. You's a special one, Aubrey, thas why you there and we all here, but always remember that we here for you. We love you, and we always thinkin' 'bout our little one off in the big city."

The young girl, dwarfed by her enormous eldest brother, sat in silence for a moment, before tears began to well in her eyes. Clive wasn't much for inspiring speeches, and what he'd said wasn't much of one, but he cared, and that's all Aubrey needed to know. She wrapped her tiny arms around the tree trunk of her brother's waist, whispering the words, thank you.

Character looks interesting! Since you are new, I will hold judgment until I have seen a sample of how you expect to be RPing here though. I recommend you check out our IC thread to see what the common style is :)
