      Nah, that's ok. :)

      Just posted. I left whoever it was Tim bumped into ambiguous, so whoever wants to be that person can take it. :) Just as long as someone takes it so I have someone to talk to.

          Is this RP currently open to new members by chance? I'm new to the forums (my account is old but I've never been on), and I've been told this is a good RP to join. Sorry if this is a bother!

          OH ARCEUS I got too comfortable with the PTA Skype chat and somehow managed to miss questions for five straight days. D;

          Hnngh...

          @PhantomPlazma: You don't need approval to post, no. :P We generally have a pretty relaxed attitude, so if you write something that totally isn't radicool or something I'll generally just ask you to change it and we can move on.

          @NeonicBeast: Yes! Always. You will have a spot with your name on it, so feel free to begin working on your SU. We'd be glad to have you. c:

          Alright, thank you for getting back to me! I'm new to forum RP, so it might take me a bit to get the hang of things. I hope that won't be too big of an issue. :x I'll try to have my SU up later tonight!

            Hey I'm new and want to sign up. I'm not the best writer but here is my SU attempt:

            Spoiler:

            Name: Andrew Hale.

            Nickname: Striker Hayes

            Age: 15

            Sex: Male

            Dorm: Entei Dorm

            Appearance: Andrew is a tall young man with most of his height in his legs. Standing at 6’1’’ Andrew’s sheer size and assertive posture strikes fear into the heart of his enemy’s. His black leather jacket he wears over his dark red T-shirt gives him that look of pure evil. His inky black slacks are tucked away under his gray combat boots making him look like a professional killer. The gloves he wears over his tan skin are brown with milky white studs over the knuckles to add to the effect. His fiery hot red hair looks messy and unkempt, almost resembling the hair style of The Wolverine. His dark green eyes will stare into your soul and chew you up from the inside out.

            Personality: Despite his appearance as a killer he can actually be very sweet and loyal. Once he trusts you it’s safe to say he will always stay by you. The trouble is getting him to open up in the first place. Andrew tends to get into a lot of fights because he prefers to walk the walk as opposed to talk the talk. When engaged in a fight, be it with a person or a pokemon battle, Andrew doesn’t stop until he has inflicted enough pain on his foe to his liking or he or his pokemon cannot physically fight anymore. His impatience is both his greatest quality and his decadence. Andrew can only standby watching people do stuff, whether it be fighting or just everyday activities, Andrew always wants in and fast. While he does want to do things and quickly he does not want to socialize that much and would rather talk by doing battle then with his words.

            History: When Andrew was born he was diagnosed with a disability which made it harder for him to see what was socially accepted and what wasn’t. His family, being super rich and of royalty, put him up for adoption because they couldn’t risk him soiling their family name. Andrew was adopted at the age of three to the Hale family. The family wasn’t rich yet wasn’t poor. They gave what they could to Andrew, like any other parent they wanted to see Andrew happy. When Andrew started the third grade his disability started to effect his behavior. He started saying things off impulse rather than thinking things through. What little friends he had left him and went to do other things. In fifth grade was when things went from bad to worse. His once friends that abandoned him started to make fun of him, and turned a sweet and loving boy into a savage. His friends finally crossed the line in seventh grade, they had told him to just die and rot alone because he was never going to be a normal person. Enraged, Andrew trained his body and mind to become who he is today. In the eighth grade Andrew finally did what he thought he was meant to do; he fought his former allies and brought them to his knees. They begged for mercy but none was given. With an eye that could pick up anything within ten feet of him he easily noticed that one of his friends carried a poke ball. He grinned wickedly and stole the boy’s pokemon. He returned home leaving them for dead for wild Spearow to feed off of, just like they once left him for dead in his own hell. A month later Andrew was kicked out of the house and was sent to find his own place to stay. To this very day he regrets the decision he made two years back. He feels his only hope of redemption lays with the Pokemon Trainer Academy.

            Pokémon: Machoke

            Species: Machoke

            Personality: Loyal to Andrew and would die fighting beside him if absolutely necessary. Doesn’t remember fully that Andrew killed his previous owner but still vaguely recalls a previous master.

            Lvl: 25

            Moves: Karate Chop, Brick Break, Seismic Toss, Strength.

            Opening Post:
            Two years have passed since the day I murdered three of my old friends. Those three had really crossed a line that day, telling me to ditch the world because I wasn’t fit to live, the nerve of them! I was the one that ended their lives and came out on top! I’m one still standing, am I not?! I had every right to take their pitiful existence away from them and prove them wrong! Yet over those two years I felt empty. I felt like a part of what makes me human was ripped away from me. I felt, and still feel, stripped of all honor, all happiness, all hope. My soul desires redemption more than they desired mercy that day. They begged me, cried, and even offered me lots of money. I consumed in rage at that moment, that moment that changed my life and my fate. I’ve searched far and wide for a release from the torture room inside my head. Last night I received a letter saying I had been accepted into the Pokemon Trainer Academy. I applied under an alias, Striker Hayes, for no one must know my true identity. No one must hear the name Andrew Hale, for it brings bad luck and misfortune upon all, including myself. The Captain of the boat I was on, or more like a floating Tauros since the boat jostled me from one side to the other, had told me we should arrive by sunrise and that I should get some sleep. The waves were especially rough tonight, or so it seemed. My mind was off in a thousand different directions trying to calm my nerves, and think of what it would take to finally free myself. To get rid of this burden and to feel… human. I shook from side to side in my straw bed as the waves beat relentlessly on the sides of the boat, directly beside me. It reminded me of the way I treated them, with no mercy, no remorse. The memories always make me cry and it was no less true tonight than any other night. I cried until I was half asleep and thought to myself, I will make it up, I will redeem myself and free my soul from these chains! I fell asleep quickly after. I dreamt that I was a pokemon trainer, I was unstoppable, yet everybody around me liked me, they truly cared for me and each other. I wasn’t fighting for corrupt ideas, I was fighting because I genuinely loved pokemon and pokemon battles. I dreamt I was care free and that nothing could hurt me. When I awoke the next morning I didn’t just see an island, but rather a chance to right my wrongs and start a new chapter, a chapter of happiness and love. I was determined to make that dream I had that night become reality and that I would either achieve that goal or die trying.

            @som3_clown: Reading your app there were a few awkward sentences that made me raise my brow,most notably "Despite his appearance as a killer he can actually be very sweet and loyal." You see when you want to compare someone to something you generally either use the phrase "X is like a Y" or "X is as (adjective) as a Y" in some cases. The way you wrote it suggests he's actually a murderer...

            Ohgodhe'sactuallyamurderer.

            Um... I find myself asking why the academy would accept a student whose public record includes psychotic fits of murderous rage. o___o; I'm also wondering how exactly he isn't wanted by the police after a stunt like that...

            If you'd like, we can discuss this further in the chat as it's a somewhat complicated issue. As for the rest of your app... it was acceptable.

              So I finally got around to making a sign up for this RP.
              Spoiler:
              Name: Arianna

              Nickname: For those that like her, Ari. For those that hate/dislike her, Ariados.

              Age: 15

              Sex: Female

              Dorm: Entei

              Appearance:
              Spoiler:


              Personality: Ari is rather socially awkward. She’s shy and (mostly) unwilling to approach people she doesn’t know for conversation. This has led to her being “friendless” (aside from her Pokémon, of course) for most of her life. She’d love to be able to interact with people more easily; she doesn’t want to be alone for all of her life. But, Ari has no idea how she’d be able to get herself into that outgoing mindset. Arianna is mostly in control of her emotions, unless she’s in a competition.

              Arianna is a lot more competitive than one would think. She love’s the thrill that competition gives her, but she often takes things way too far. When she’s competing, Ari is practically a completely different person. She become’s much louder than she normally is (and she normally speaks at a medium volume). Ari also become’s rude and sometimes angry, which is a rare state to see her in when she’s her normal self.

              Ari is not too fond of bug type Pokémon, (as in, she’d like nothing more than for nearly every species to suddenly go extinct) with her absolute least favourites being Spinarak and Ariados. She has no idea why she has this immense hatred of bugs, but Arianna doesn’t care. She just knows that she hates them. On the opposite side of her hate scale are dark type Pokémon. Although, this is more so because she aspires to be like Karen of the Indigo Elite 4, rather than something she began to like for herself.

              Speaking of which, Karen is Arianna’s role-model and idol. She hopes that she’ll turn out half as good as the fantastically amazing dark-type master.

              History: Arianna never knew her parents. Her earliest memories are only those of the orphanage. And they aren’t exactly her fondest memories. She remembers being lonely in her early childhood, never making many/any friends. Ari ended up just sitting alone on her bed most days, only talking to people when it was necessary. This lasted for nearly 13 years of Arianna’s life, changing when the orphanage she lived at received a special visitor.

              One unassuming day, they were told that a secret guest was arriving and apparently they were some great Pokémon trainer. At first, she wasn’t excited, nor was she interested in the arrival of a visitor at all. It’d probably just be a publicity stunt for the person. It’s not like they’d actually care about them anyway. So, she was fully prepared to just sulk in her room, like always. She could slightly hear some of the voices from outside her bedroom door. Some squeals, laughter. After a while, the commotion from outside had began to settle down. Ari could hear a muffled voice give a farewell before it retreated into a closer room.

              And then, something knocked against her door. Arianna didn’t respond, hoping that whoever was out there would leave her alone. But the knocking was persistent. After being unable to bear the knocking anymore, Ari let the person in. To her surprise, it was the trainer that was visiting the orphanage. Karen of the Indigo Elite 4. The bluish-grey haired woman walked over to Arianna’s bed, sitting down without saying a single word. She gestured for Ari to shut the door behind her and sit down next to her.

              She talked to her for a while, being much more down to earth than Ari had expected her to be. As the minutes flew by Ari began liking Karen more and more, to the point of near obsession. Eventually, Karen had to leave the orphanage. However, her farewell wasn’t without a few words of encouragement. Karen’s talk with Arianna inspired her to make something of her life, and she vowed to become like the master trainer.

              Arianna immediately began to scavenge enough money for some Pokéballs. Once she had saved enough, Ari bought 2 Pokéballs (One as a spare, in case the first one failed). She then set out to catch her first Pokémon. After about a day or two of searching, Arianna found the perfect Pokémon. A Houndour. She tried to capture it immediately, but the Pokémon angrily busted out of the Pokéball mere seconds after the ball touched it. She was then chased around the field by a practically insane dog, but some lucky manoeuvring forced the puppy to crash into a tree. Ari tried her luck a second time, but unlike her first attempt, she succeeded.

              As she continued to get older and older, it became readily apparent to Ari that she wasn’t going to be getting adopted. Things weren’t looking great for the girl, until she spotted a flyer for a high-quality Pokémon training academy. Best of all, it was (for the most part) free. However, it was required to pass some preliminary exams to get accepted. After gaining the permission from her only caregiver, the owner of her orphanage, she registered for the academy. Ari began pouring every last ounce of effort into preparations for the preliminary exams. Preparations for the first day of the rest of her life.

              Pokémon:

              Species: Houndour (Female)
              Nickname: Holly
              Personality: Holly is incredibly protective over Arianna and will get aggressive whenever she notice’s a possible threat to her safety. This would be a good thing, if it weren’t for the fact that Holly is a jealous little Houndour. While she loves her master to death, she doesn’t like other people and will bark and growl at the slightest movements of those she views as a threat/everyone.

              Lvl:18
              Moves: Ember, Bite, Nasty Plot, Smog and Roar.

              Species: Deino (Male)
              Nickname: Einstein
              Personality: Violent, aggressive and simple-minded. Which is ironic when one considers his nickname. Einstein has very little concern for anyone’s safety, including his own.

              Lvl:17
              Moves: Dragon Breath, Bite, Earth Power and Facade.

              Species: Cacnea (Female)
              Nickname: Kacey
              Personality: Arianna’s nicest Pokémon. Kacey is very kind and loving, often showing her affection towards everything in the form of hugs. Which is unfortunate, because Kacey happens to have a bunch of spikes scattered around her body. Even more unfortunate is the fact that she’s completely oblivious to any pain she may inflict on people.

              Lvl: 16
              Moves: Poison Sting, Absorb, Leech Seed, Growth and Low Kick.

                  Name: Max Huston Silas
                  Nickname: Silas
                  Age:17
                  Gender: male
                  Dorm: Raiku dorm

                  Appearance: black hair that falls to the middle of his shoulders. 5’1” and growing. Hazel eyes, and super good looking. He always wears a shirt with art on it from his shop that he co-owns with a friend of his from the orphanage he grew up in. They are so close they consider each other brothers. Silas wears neon skinny jeans that are always a different color from his smeargles’ special tail paint that can change colors, unlike most smeargle.

                  Personality: Silas seems very lax on the outside, which is a very accurate reflection of how he is on the inside too. Silas is very comfortable with the people around him, however that doesn’t mean that he isn’t awkward.

                  History:
                  He has two really good friends from the orphanage he grew up in. One of them is a clinical genious and the other became the youngest millionare ever at the age of 12. Silas is just as smart as his younger, genious ,brother, and just as influential as his business tycoon older brother but he isn’t as motivated as his brothers so he isn’t as well known as they are.
                  As children silas and his brothers came up with a plan to catch pokemon in the ruins of alph where they knew rare pokemon existed but that they couldn’t find because they couldn’t explore deeply enough into the ruins to find them because they couldn’t explore over night. When their plan was complete the young genious had a weepinbell, the business tycoon a sneasel and Silas ended up with a smeargle that enjoys pokemon hallucinogens.

                  “Alright Phish, today is the day that Faulkner gives us our present. I wonder what it’s going to be” Silas looks over at Phish who is painting a field of daisys in mid-air, paint dripping from his tail to the already rainbow floor, adding color to the collection of footprints and splashes from previous of Phish’s trips. “Oh yeah, I forgot you don’t care.” Phish sort of killed Silas’s excitement with his own disinterest. Too bad, but at least Faulkner was coming back today.
                  “Phish return,” Silas said as he walked out the front door tracking paint onto the porch where he retrieved his bike from the hook in the overhang and started off on his way to the gym going twice as fast as usual, led by his excitement for the present that Faulkner had been gone for so long hunting down. “Rare pokemon are the best”
                  After a quick five minute sprint on his bike Silas arrives at the gym to find that it is already open, a sure sign that Faulkner is back. Silas has been opening the gym himself for the last month while Faulkner’s been away, one of the only two people who have a key to the gym. Silas parks his bike as quick as he can and runs inside to challenge Faulkner to a welcome home battle.
                  “Silas!” Faulkner is as excited as Silas is to be home. “I have a present for you!”
                  “I know you do, what is it?”
                  “Here,” Faulkner throws a golden pokeball at silas which he catches with the dainty ease of a ninja “open it.”
                  “umm, go… pokemon” and from the ball a crimson beam shoots to the ground a few feet in front of him where an archen appears with green at the tips of his wings and tail. “No way! A discolored Archen!? This is awesome!”
                  “I hoped that you would like it, it took me a lot of tracking down to get they baby.”
                  “A baby? You mean I can raise this thing myself?” silas is speaking gently now as he carefully approaches the archen.
                  “I had to talk to some very influential breeders from Kanto, Hoenn, as well as sylph co’s most leading scientists to get a baby with that unique coloring.”
                  Silas leaves the little archen’s side to go to Faulkner and give the old man a hug. “thank you so much Faulkner, now I can go to school with my team already started, and an archen is a perfect start.”

                  Opening post: I've never had a problem with riding bird Pokemon. I was practically born on the back of a pidgey and with Faulkner as my teacher I became a prodigy. By the time I was 5 the only person in violet city who could maneuver better in the sky than I could was Faulkner himself. But long rides like the one I am taking now on the back of bloodbeak the red fearow are boring and make my joints stiff, this is absolutely unexhilarating and painful...
                  Flying in on bloodbeak does have its advantages though. Not having to ride that boat is a plus, I've never enjoyed any trips that I've taken on o
                  cean boats with Flores on our business trips before, and Phish gets even more seasick than I did on them. The all you can eat buffet turned into an all you can barf sad-day.
                  "kaaaww" (ooc: or whatever sound fearow make) I look up at bloodbeaks call and see the speck of an island in the distance.
                  "Nice flying bloodbeak! We're almost there!" aw man, I'm excited to get here! There are so many things that I want to do on this island other than just go to my classes. I packed a sketch pad and at least 20 different styles of pokeballs so that I can catch or paint anything I find on this isolated academy island. And since bloodbeak is so much faster than the official fairy I will have a few hours to explore before picking my things off the boat.
                  While my mind wanders through the possibilities my eyes are glued to that quickly enlarging land mass that is going to be my home while I train under some of the greatest pokemon specializers in the world! I've already been enrolled in cooking with cylan, eggs and breeding with Brock, Pokemon mythology with Cynthia, and a flying Pokemon class with Winona, Faulkners "bird of a feather".
                  Finally the descent from freezing high altitude temperatures starts my blood pumping again! My fingers tingle with the increased blood flow and I relish flexing my hands in turn, feeling the strength flow through bloodbeaks spread wings through my body invigorating my fingers.
                  The beach has grown from a speck in the distance to a collection of specks of sand and, true to form, bloodbeak breaks our descent just in time to skim his mighty talons along the soft white sand leaving trenches in his wake.
                  True to my own form I jump off of bloodbeaks back before he lands. My legs collapse on contact with the ground and I roll through a sandcastle getting covered in sand at the same time that I ruin what seemed to be elegant architecture.
                  "nice entrance." It's a girls voice so before I turn around I brush the sand off my pants and take off my soiled shirt and reveal my carefully sculpted torso before turning around to meet her.
                  Team:

                  Smeargle: Phsih
                  Gender: male
                  Appearance: shiny smeargle with a color changing tail
                  Personality: super lax pokemon who like to do pokemon hallucinogens. Phish is very focused at all times on all things. Whether he’s focused on the battle he’s in or on the skiploom floating by in his mind is not always clear.

                  Moves:
                  Swagger

                        Hey guys, I was wondering if the RP is still active, I think I am finally going to try to sign up for this RP if it is still active, but I will be totally lost. I notice the last post here was almost a month ago.

                            Yes, it's still active. Often times we have inactive times where we need breaks. Given how many posts have been done it's hard to keep going for months upon months without taking a break or two. Just send in SUs and the GMs will see if you get accepted.

                              Ok thanks thank you. I will try to get an SU up soon. Reason I asked, was because I just have never seen it inactive. Maybe because I am inactive when it is lol.

                                @Iceman: We use a skype group to make small talk easier amongst group members. It's main purpose is to improve communication, but as a side effect it does lower the post rate here in the OOC thread.

                                @Kanon Shiro: Absolutely. You may wish to join the skype group for faster communication, but regardless I shall attempt to keep on top of any SUs that get posted.

                                @Everyone: Speaking of important stuff that needs to be posted in the thread as opposed to the skype chat, it's probably fair to say that it's well past halfway through the IC day. I would suggest that it is now evening and approaching sundown. Seeing as how many pokemon only come out at night sundown is not equivalent to curfew, however curfew is approaching. Next time I make an announcement about the time of day it will probably come with a date where we'll transition to a new day.

                                Right! A disaster occurred recently where Imageshack decided it was going to hold all of my images hostage for $2. (...) More importantly however, after I got them back not only did I have to transfer them over to a new host but half of the ones I was using for PTA were randomly broken too.

                                At this point, I've completely fixed it. There should be no more imageshack links in the OOC thread's first post which is where it counts. In the process of redoing a ton of broken stuff I upgraded the teachers list to be newer and more consistent and completely redid the wild pokemon list.

                                The wild pokemon list is actually a lot better than it used to be IMO, much easier to read and understand. (It now lists which types live in a specific area instead of individual pokemon.) In addition to this, I've added two new areas! The volcanic cave is meant to be a cave within the volcano area of the island and submerged caves / sea floor are self explanatory.

                                Both of these areas, much like the dead forest, are very inhospitable and students would generally be advised not to go there. You know an area is pretty dangerous when only one type of pokemon dares make it's home there. (You also know an area is at least somewhat dangerous when ghosts have started cropping up there. ;o)

                                In other news, the IC day is coming to an end! Start making your preparations for the night and be prepared for the cutoff post in the next few days. If you'd like your character put in a specific class, let me know. I find myself in the mood and willing to play some NPC teachers, if anyone wants to take advantage of that.

                                Also, as usual I am accepting suggestions for new class / teacher suggestions. (As a rule of thumb, aside from general experts there should not be more than 2 teachers for a class.)

                                  Hello, I'd love to join this! It looks like there's still slots left. :)

                                  Name: Amber Frost
                                  Nickname: She was often known as "The Consigner" to those who met her, as she could sell you pretty much anything you needed - for a price, of course. Amber considers it her "street persona", and even made an insignia. If you spot a heart with Zubat wings carved into a surface, The Consigner was around, waiting for customers.
                                  Age: 15
                                  Sex: Female
                                  Dorm: Raikou Dorm

                                  Appearance: A teenage girl with long, dirty blonde hair that fades to purple at the ends, with a small pony tail held together with two lock picks disguised as normal hair pins, carved out of bone. She has blue eyes and is average in height and weight. She is almost always seen wearing a purple top, ripped black jeans, and purple combat boots. She also has several scars crisscrossed on her back and arms that she doesn't like to mention. She wears a necklace with a heart-shaped piece of amber on a silver chain. The necklace is the only thing she has from her birth mother and refuses to take it off or sell it, despite all her claims of not being a sentimental type.

                                  Personality: Amber is sarcastic, rebellious, and a bit of a bully. She also has a strong pride that often gets in the way of what's important, especially when she truly needs help yet refuses to ask anyone for it. She has an apathetic view toward her schooling; she often ditches classes and finds receiving a C grade an impressive accomplishment. Amber has antisocial tendencies, preferring to keep to herself rather than meet new people. If she does meet others, it's to quench her boredom with some quality mocking. She's good at reading people, and can find people's insecurities and use it against them.

                                  Despite not caring for other people, she has a strong bond with her Pokemon; Pokemon are always loyal and never betray you, unlike people. Also, contrasting strongly with her personality, she is a firm believer in Arceus, and reacts strongly to those who use the phrase, "Oh my Arceus" or other irreverent phrases. She also has a strong mistrust and hatred of adults from her years of foster care. Her cold hard exterior often pushes people away, to Amber's delight, however those that can get close to her may find a softer interior locked away from harm.

                                  History: Amber had a rough life growing up, which understandably lead to many of her problematic personality traits. Abandoned at a young age, Amber grew up in a rundown orphanage run by kind, old nuns of Arceus. Despite their loving influence, she was bitter towards the parents she never knew, and never got along well with the other children. She chased away any potential adopters with her antisocial and brutish personality, and that suited her just fine.

                                  She started bouncing from foster home to foster home, never lasting for long with any one family. But then she went to a family she couldn't defeat with her defiance. The man was a cruel taskmaster, and his wife was too terrified of him to help Amber. Amber was forced to do all the chores around the house, with few decent meals. Any disobedience was met with a fierce beating, usually with a belt, which was the source of her numerous scars running across her body. Being the rebellious one she is, this occurred quite often. However, her spirit was never broken, and she planned her escape, fueled by rage.

                                  One day, she finally put her plan into action. She packed up a tiny sack of her belongings, including large chunks of rock from the walls, just in case. She silently crept up the stairs out of her tiny basement room, took the lock pins out of her hair, and unlocked the door. With a quickly muttered prayer for safety like she'd been taught, she entered the hallway. She retied her hairpins, and walked towards the door, bag in hand. Everything did not go as planned, however.

                                  The front door opened with a click, as the man returned home early from work. Caught in the act, Amber reacted too slowly to hide before he walked in and spotted her. Furious, he stormed in and grabbed her by the neck, pushing her against the wall. As she struggled fiercely and gasped for breath, she made out a rapidly growing figure in the sky through the open front door. The shape became more defined through Amber's blackening vision as a purple, flying Pokemon heading towards the door at a high velocity. She pushed as hard as she could and drew in a sharp breath before the Zubat collided with her attacker in a swirling mass of teeth and wings. Amber took the opportunity to grab her stuff, and started to make a run for it as the man shook off the Zubat, sending it crashing into the wall. Enraged, the man wouldn't leave it at that and went over to the fallen Zubat and hit it again. Amber should've taken the chance to escape as he was distracted, but instead she ran back inside, hefted her bag over her head and brought it down on the back of the man's head with a scream. He crumpled to the floor, unconscious.

                                  Shaken and bruised, but otherwise uninjured, Amber scooped up the wounded Zubat into her bag and ran as fast and far as she could. When she came to the nearest town, she pulled out a dusty Pokeball and caught the brave little Zubat and got him healed at the Pokemon Center. From then she lived on the streets, mostly stealing to survive. That is, until she found out about the Pokemon Trainer Academy. Getting a place to stay, meals, and the opportunity to get much stronger was well worth having to go to school. She was rather surprised by being accepted, but she wasn't going to look a gift Ponyta in the mouth. She packed up what few things she had and left on the soonest boat out, already imagining what sort of trouble she could cause.

                                  Pokémon:

                                  Species: Zubat
                                  Nickname: Valor
                                  Personality: Recklessly brave, this loyal Zubat will do anything for his trainer and fellow Pokemon, even dive headfirst into danger.
                                  Lvl: 15
                                  Moves: Wing Attack, Bite, Supersonic, Leech Life, Astonish

                                  Species: Ponyta
                                  Nickname: Spirit
                                  Personality: This energetic Ponyta has a need for speed, and grants his loyalty to those who earn it.
                                  Lvl: 15
                                  Moves: Hypnosis, Tackle, Tail Whip, Ember, Flame Wheel, Charm

                                  Personality: This sneaky little Treecko is a perfect partner in crime; any strangely disappearing wallets probably have Swindle as the cause.
                                  Lvl: 10
                                  Moves: Pound, Leer, Absorb

                                  Misc.:

                                  Amber's current team of 3 Pokemon all had specific jobs when it came to thievery and survival. Valor was her bodyguard, ready to protect her if things went south. Spirit was the charm; if she needed a good distraction or to lower someone's guard, he was the Pokemon for the job. And Swindle served as an assistant, and proved to be better at pick pocketing than Amber herself, although he could never beat her lock picking skills. Swindle was left to fend for himself in the city after he lost an important territory battle with a Grovyle and was forced out of the area. He tried to pickpocket Amber, who, to his disappointment, had next to nothing on her. She caught him in the act, and figured it'd be beneficial to have another thief around with her, and so he was added to her team, bringing it up to a total of 3 Pokemon.

                                  Amber has few belongings, however the most important item besides her necklace is a well-maintained hunting knife. It's served useful for all sorts of things, and she never goes far without it. It's especially helpful for one of her favorite hobbies, which is carving. Her favorite materials to carve are bone and certain seashells; rumor has it that those particular objects are worth as much as gold when trading with The Consigner. Another hobby of hers is horseback riding (Ponytaback riding?).
