RP thread (https://pokecharms.com/threads/gym-leader-academy-gla.22526/) Yeah I know, another Pokemon School Roleplay and just when you're all going into summer vacations... Anyways! I'm gonna try and make this better and hopefully entertaining enough so it doesn't die and end up in the RP graveyard. So this RP will have a similar way of working, like in the Harry Potter movies, the school will be divided in three houses, Suicune, Raikou and Entei. But not only that, you might have noticed the title, so yeah this school is for your character to become a GYM Leader. Therefore, you will have to specialize in one type of Pokemon. Now I know being limited like this is annoying so, just because you specialize in one type it doesn't mean you have to have only that type of Pokemon. For competitions, school activities and such your character can only use the type they are focusing on, but can have other types. Now, your character will start out as a freshman depending on the type he has chosen, the house he will belong to. Now each house has a symbol, for which I am terrible of making so I used these designs I found online and do not belong to me ADMIN EDIT: Then you're not allowed to use them. Appropriating other people's designs for unrelated purposes is still theft and is very much NOT allowed here. Now for the boys they have to wear pants the same color as the skirt and the girls can wear either pants or skirt, up to them. The logos are just so you know the insignia that is being used, but we will not use the team names being used on the images. You are more then welcome to add or change the uniform to fit your character's style, but they have to wear it during school hours, they can remove their jacket for example, but not change the colors or wear tennis shoes. Now, everyone's favorite part, rules: All Pokecharms rules apply, in case you were wondering that. Romance is allowed, just keep it casual, it's High School, hard to avoid that. There will be competitions, battles, contest and others, the winners will be determined in the discussion board to avoid fights. If we cannot decide on one, I will do it. This RP is to keep busy during quarantine and summer break, so you do need to be able to post at least once a day. Shiny Pokemon are allowed and even albino Pokemon, just make sure you specify it on your character sheet. Maximum three Pokemon per trainer. Must have at least one Pokemon that goes along with your characters chosen type. You are able to have middle leveled Pokemon, but no Pokemon in final forms please, not yet. Pokemon can have various moves, just not all the existing moves to try and get and advantage over everything, keep it fair, I trust you guys. Place Quilava is the best, somewhere in your post so I know you read the rules. Your character cannot be the best at everything, he can be good at battles or contest or sports, but not an expert on it all. He can get perfect grades, but not be the best in everything, please don't be that guy. You cannot repeat typing with someone else, so first one to call dibs gets it. You can have as many characters as you can handle, please do not get too many if you cannot handle the pressure! Post must be at least five sentences long, but try and do more then that. Now time for the division of types: Spoiler: Suicune Water - ThePlayfulFox Flying - Cmeriwether Ice - Taken by me Psychic - ThePlayfulFox Fairy - Spoiler: Alex Name: Alex Lockheart Gender: Male Hometown: Fallarbor Town, Hoenn Age: 15 Looks: Alex has blonde, medium length, wavy hair that fades to pink at the tips.

He has a bracelet on his left arm which he hopes to put a gardevourite into. He wears a belt around his waist where he keeps his pokéballs. (Which are all in premier balls)Alex has a small unseeable birthmark on his back in the shape of a heart. Alex isn't particularly muscly and doesn't like sports. He has a good diet though so he is slim. Personality: Alex is kind and caring but when it comes time to battle he is ruthless and without mercy. He is shy extremely social but can unintentionally be passive aggressive or rude. He will defend anyone who needs it. Past: Alex grew up in a small town in Alola but moved to Hoenn with his family when he was 13. His dream since forever was to be a Fairy type trainer, eventually he enrolled in GLA to become a fairy type gym leader. He also enrolled as he had been living with a friend ever since his family kicked him out for being gay. He found his first fairy type, a Ralts and named it Lilly, 5 years before enrolling. He then traveled to Alola to catch the others. On his 12th birthday he was gifted Fluffy who hates to battle so Fluffy only travels with him. Pokémon: Species: Ralts Nickname: Lilly Gender: Female Species: Eevee Nickname: Fluffy Gender: Female Species: Morelull Nickname: Turnip Gender: Female Grass - Pinch Spoiler: Entei Fire - Taken by me Rock - Baymax Normal - Spoiler: Snowflake Full Name: Adriana Gonzalez Age: 13 Type and House: Entei & Normal Appearance: Adriana stands at a moderately tall 5'6 ft, and wears a grey sweater. She has round circle glasses and dark brown curly hair. Personality: Adrianna is a cheerful young lad, who enjoys going up to anyone and everyone for a nice chit chat. She hasn't gotten the best grip on battling, but she isn't what you'd call a beginner. Adrianna isn't here to be the best, or even become a better battler, she just wants to make good friends and learn how to be a responsible gym leader. Background: In her home town, the gym recently closed due to it's previous leader mysteriously disappearing one day. Since then, visitors to Adrianna's town became less and less, so the town had a vote on who would make the best leader. And, thanks to her relationships with everyone and strong support from her family, the town decided she should come to this academy to become their next leader. Pokemon: Buneary (ace), Mincinno, and Aipom. Other: Quilava is best Fighting - Spoiler: Ruby Name: Ruby Ranacola Gender: Female Hometown: Type and house: Fighting in Entei Age: 15 Height: 62.5" (158.7 cm) Weight: 115.0 lb (52.1 kg) Appearance: Short brunette hair that reaches to her shoulders.

Family: Ruby grew up as a single child in a normal family. Her parents have always supported her. She also considered Bruno a guardian as he trained her. Pokémon: Riolu named Spike Male Stufful named Mia Female Mankey named Monkey Female Ghost - Red Gallade Ground - Spoiler: Renz Name: Renz Flintrock Age: 15 Type and House: Ground, House Entei Appearance: Renz is fairly tall, standing around 5’9. His skin is tanned from the Alolan sun, but he is still what would be classified as Caucasian. His hair is a dark brown, not quite black but fairly close. His eyes are mostly blue, but with small amounts of green and brown flecks. Normally he will wear either school uniforms or V-neck tee shirts, jeans, or sport shorts. He has a black backpack with the Mega Evolution symbol on it, a whit wristwatch on one arm and a Z-Ring on the other. Personality: Renz is friendly but somewhat introverted. While he always tries to be polite, in many cases he sticks to friends he already has. He is passionate about battles and caring for his Pokémon, and his Pokémon are his closest friends. He doesn’t know many, if any of the people at school. In fact, he would only know them if they lived near Malie City, his hometown. Because of this, he will make an effort to make a few new friends. Maybe. He doesn’t agree when people say Quilava is the best, but little does he know that a Typhlosion will be one of his best friends. Most of you know how Renz acts anyways, but I’ll keep going. One of his most notable qualities is his loyalty. If you work your way into friendship with him, there are very few things that would make him not try to help you out of a tough spot. However, he has certain morals and preferences that are rather strong, and he has also been known to be quite stubborn. Becoming a Gym Leader has been a dream of his since he was little. Background: Renz was born in Malie City, Alola. His father, George, is a native of the area, passionate about exploring and finding interesting things. His mother, Terisa, comes from Kanto and took on the league challenge. They are both good people and raised Renz to be one as well. Renz’s family owns a trinket shop in Malie City’s shopping district, and they have an apartment above the shop. Renz grew up helping around the shop, attending school, and playing with the other kids. When he was 13, his parents gave him an egg for his birthday. His father had found it on a curio hunting trip in the Haina desert. When it hatched, he met his partner, Gible. After a time they set off on a journey in Alola, and they were able to obtain two companions, Sandile and Mudbray, plus a few Z-Crystals. Now he’s finally able to join the GLA, and is both excited and intimidated. Pokémon: Gible Sandile (Zade) Mudbray Other: DERP Spoiler: Raikou Electric - Spoiler: Vikal Full Name: Vikal Gypsum Age (13-15): 14 Type and House: Electric, Raikou Appearance: Black eyes and Hair/ Semi-dark skin/ 5'5. Vikal wears an electric blue t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. Personality: Vikal, fitting for his typing, is Fun-loving, sharp-tongued, and hasty when it comes to decisions. He has a strong moral code, although he can go in over his head sometimes when attempting to help people. Despite growing up in a rural-ish farm, he is a bit of a tech whiz. Background: Vikal was born and raised in Johto, where he helped his family working a Pokemon Farm. He helped mostly in tending a mareep flock in the farm. The leader of the flock, an ampharos, had an egg, which Vikal cared for until it hatched into a mareep. After some time, his parents took note of his natural talent at battling along with easy friendships with pokemon, especially electric ones. They decided to send him to the school, hoping that he'll end up growing as a person and excel at life. Vikal was okay with it, only because it meant new sights. He caught a grubbin during a mareep transfer in alola, and porygon was given to him from bill before he was sent to the school as thanks for helping him fix his computer. Current Pokemon: Quirky Flaaffy (Nick: Shtocky, Male, Static) Hasty Charjabug (Voltug, Male, Battery) Quiet Porygon (Vigit, Analytic) Steel - TallHalfing Dark - Spoiler: Jackie Full Name: Jackie Danthorpe Age: 14 Type and House: Dark (Raikou) Appearance: Jackie is rather pale, with eyes that are almost maroon and shaggy black hair that goes down past her shoulders. She's usually dressed in a hoodie and jeans. Personality: Jackie doesn't really care about others. The only reason she got in to the GLA is because of her strong battling skills and passable grades. She is actually extremely intelligent, but you'd never guess based on her grades. She just genuinely doesn't care to excel unless given a good enough reason. She has a strange empathy for dark types, and can usually get along with them. (I'll work more on this later.) Background: Hailing from Galar, Jackie comes from a fairly well-to-do family. She spent most of her life in Wyndon, and got a decent education there in spite of her grades. Her real passion was battling, though, and when her parents asked her to pick a career Gym Leader was the one she ended up choosing. Thus she made the minimal effort to get in.
