    More for RP Purposes:

    Personality: Rather cheerful and positive, Duncan wishes the best for everyone and is an optimist. Of course, everyone has flaws, and Duncan is not above that. He can get selfish or rude, especially when someone insults him. He often gets over-competitive, hardly thinking in the midst of battle.
    Appearance: Somewhat short for his age, Duncan is often well dressed and well kept. He likes to give off a warm and comforting appearance to let people know "Hey, this bloke ain't that bad". His attire usually consists of a t-shirt with a warm colour on it with white sports pants and sneakers.
    Backstory (Optional): Duncan was born and raised in Nimbasa City, and is quite used to the glamour that a large city provides. Professor Cedric Juniper noticed him and a few friends and set them off on a journey four years ago where he learned how to be a Pokémon trainer. He has participated in smaller tournaments before, but never one so massive. Duncan hopes to learn from this above all, so he may be a more successful trainer in the long run.

    How many pokemon can be registered?

  4. Psycho Monkey

    Psycho Monkey Member of the Literary Elite Four

    Before I fully commit to joining, is there a limit to the number of participants you're allowing to sign up? I've been in RPs before that have collapsed under their own weight due to having too many players in it so I was wondering how many you intended to host.
     
  5. I will close the RP after eight people joined, one character per person.

  8. I'm just curious, is it ok if we have one shiny?
     
  9. Yes, but keep in mind how rare they are when writing.

    Eye Color: Dark Blue
    Town of Residence: Olivine City
    Awards/Accomplishments: Multi-Region Champion and World Explorer
    Personality: Allison is a generally shy and reserved person and is usually a down to earth kind of person. Her personality sometimes differs between silly and serious. She also gets frustrated pretty easily.

    Backstory: Allison grew up in the Orre region where at the age of eleven was sent to Johto where she started the Gym Challenge there. She would soon head back to Orre to save some Pokemon that were in danger and head back to Johto to complete her challenge and enter the Johto Championships. Over the years, she went across multiple regions, defeating multiple gyms and winning many championships and tournaments. At the age of twenty, she settled down at Olivine where she started to explore the world of Pokemon more thoroughly which always fascinated her, taking interest in the Ruins of Alph as well as other places. She explored the world and many other regions with her main four Pokemon she had since the beginning. One day at her lab in Olivine, she received a letter to join a tournament in Castelia City, Unova. It has been over eight years since she participated in any tournaments, so she decided to take up the offer and choose six of her "veterans" to join her and left the four to manage the lab.
    Other: Allison has a massive sweet tooth.

He made it through the Unova Gym Challenge in about a year, participating in the league tournament and actually winning, going on to defeat the champion and become the new Champion of Unova. Despite his new duties however, Oliver decided he’d like to explore more regions, so far he’s been to Alola, Sinnoh and Hoenn, and only participated in the Sinnoh Gym Challenge where he didn’t challenge the rest of the league.

He has baggy, gray pants with holes from his Sinnoh journey on them, and wears red and black shoes, which have also been worn down and aged.
    Personality: Jet is an eager boy who enjoys the thrill of new experiences and adventures. He has a lot of self-confidence, but it’s modest about whatever achievements he’s earned. Jet, while outgoing, can be easily irritated at points and can turn very snarky in an instant. He’s a kind person, but has his limits and won’t help if he doesn’t care or isn’t in the mood.
    Backstory: After learning of his brother’s accomplishments as a trainer, and odd disappearance, Jet had a fire in him that pushed him to become a Pokémon trainer...after running from home with his first Pokémon, Aipom.

  15. Screw it, Imma dew it.

    Name
    : Tony Mercer
    Age: 19
    Gender: Male
    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 172 lbs
    Hair Color: Dark Blond
    Eye Color: Foggy ocean Blue
    Personality: Despite his gloomy appearance and stoic expression, Tony is surprisingly kinder than one would expect, never afraid to ask if anyone needs help and is no stranger to smiling despite how rarely he shows it. He loves Pokemon with a strong passion and wouldn't hesitate to help them out if needed, this love is strong enough for him to loathe trainers who mistreat their Pokemon or simply see them as tools... this however isn't as strong as his hatred for losing as he stubbornly views it as humiliation rather than a 'lesson', pushing away any talk on how "it's okay to lose." He is also known to be rather cruel when angry. The most likely time someone will see Tony smile is during a heated Pokemon battle. Some people say Tony used to be a much more cheerful person in the past, but 'something' in his past changed him forever.
    Appearance: At first glace, Tony looks like a Gothic type of person with his extremely Pale skin regardless of how often he goes outdoors along with short, somewhat messy hair. His body figure looks slim with a decent amount of fitness, although no sign of any muscle of any kind. His attire consists of a White t shirt underneath an ankle long jet black hooded coat, dark Gray baggy pants and Black trainers.
    Born in Jubilife City between a loving father and a busy mother, started out like your normal everyday boy, due to how busy his mother was with work, this made Tony spend more time with his father who taught him everything about Pokemon and told him of the 'good old days' when he was a Pokemon trainer. This created a spark within Tony who began to dream of becoming a Pokemon trainer as well much to his father's delight, however Tony refused to take a starter with him as he wanted to feel a bit more 'unique' at the time, Tony's father decided to give his son a Pokeball and take him on a little trip into the woods to help Tony find his future partner.

    Upon arrival, Tony was excited to see all the Pokemon that lived there and immediately ran into the woods to see if there were any good ones around, it was then that Tony heard a noise like that of someone calling for help, Tony ran over to the source to find a Teddiursa drowning in a lake. Tony's father went to call for help, but Tony instinctively jumped into the pool and swam over to the Teddiursa, pulling the poor Pokemon to solid ground, Tony's father didn't know how to feel about the seemingly reckless action his son just took, but his determination reminded him of himself when he was younger and let him off the hook. The grateful Teddiursa followed Tony back and Tony's father told him that the Pokemon has chosen to be with him, to Tony's great delight, he immediately caught the Teddiursa and took him home with him.

    Ever since that day, Tony began to embark on a Pokemon journey and train hard with Teddiursa, rarely were they seen separated from one another during their travels. During one battle with another trainer, Tony's Teddiursa miraculously evolved into Ursaring and fought even harder for Tony until the two were as close as brothers.

    ...But during their travel through Eterna City, a truck swayed out of control and was about to directly crash into Tony only for Ursaring to push Tony out of the way and take the hit himself which severely injured him. Ursaring was immediately taken into intensive care while Tony was forced to wait and hope for the best... but Ursaring unfortunately didn't make it and passed away a few days after the accident. Since then, Tony fell into unimaginable depression, returned home and shut himself in his room, rarely coming out or doing anything at all which made his parents extremely worried. Tony's father then decided to try and make Tony do some 'errands' for him which were mainly excuses to get him back outside.

    During one stormy evening, Tony was on his way back from his 'errand' only to hear the sound of a distraught Pokemon nearby, Tony followed the noise into an alleyway to find a freezing and wet Zorua within an old cardboard box. The look of loneliness in her eyes strongly resembled his own as Tony held his hand out to the lonely Pokemon and asked. "Would you like to come with me?" Since then, Tony slowly made his way back into his Pokemon journey in the hope that he could regain his 'fires of passion' and return to the life of a Pokemon trainer that he adored so much.

    More for RP Purposes:
    Personality: Shiro is a competitive young man who tends to rush into things without always thinking them through when his goals are on the line. Otherwise he is very intelligent and good at problem solving when having a cool head to think about the situation rationally. He is a kind, optimistic, and decent person to be around but has a short fuse around people with arrogant alpha douche tendencies. He has a love of adventure, mystery, and old legends.
    Appearance: Shiro has a thin build and typically wears dark blue jeans, sturdy white running shoes, black and white checkered wrist warmers, and a dark purple T-shirt.
    Backstory (Optional):
    When Shiro was 5-years-old, his Grandma passed away resulting in his Grandpa Roshi coming to live with him and his parents. Roshi was an avid Pokémon fan who always watched tournament battles on TV which inspired Shiro to become a Pokémon Trainer. His parents were less than thrilled with the prospect, instead wanting their son to get a high paying, high profile job like they had; his mom being a prosecution lawyer and his dad a CEO of a computer company. They didn’t want Shiro to throw away a promising future by becoming some sort of vagabond slacker. Thus a contract was made. On the cusp of his eighth-grade year Shiro made the following deal with his parents: If he got straight A’s for the entire year and completed Prof. Juniper’s online courses on becoming a Trainer then he would be allowed to go. Needless to say it was a stressful year for Shiro but he managed to fulfill his end of the bargain so his parents were forced to uphold theirs and let him pursue his dream.

    He set off on his journey with his chosen Starter, an Oshawott he named Mizuki, but hit a few roadblocks day one. First, he lost to a Gym Trainer when attempting to challenge his hometown Castelia’s Gym. Following that, he lost to a stronger Trainer who he thought he could beat easily due to them using a Fire-type. The veteran Trainer wasn’t going to let Shiro off the hook that easily and instead gave the newbie much needed advice on what it actually means to be a Trainer and to travel with Pokémon. While Shiro didn’t necessarily take the words to heart at the time, they did make him reflect on his earlier actions and think about the kind of Trainer he wanted to become.

    A month into his journey, Shiro found himself beginning his first real adventure since leaving home. Thanks to a new exhibit at the Nacrene Museum, rumors were beginning to circulate about an ancient treasure hidden around Unova. Shiro had just won his first Badge from the Nacrene Gym Leader Lenora who, upon noticing his intrigue on the subject, spurred him on to join with a group of treasure hunters to seek out the mystery of the treasure. Ever since that adventure concluded, Shiro continues to splice his quest to become Champion with looking into as many rumors and mysteries as he can along the way including an investigation into the mystery surrounding the Strange Lights of Route 14.

    Shiro spent some time in Black City battling his way up Black Tower but doesn’t like talking about his time there for various reasons.

  22. @Psycho Monkey accepted! I think it could pose an interesting battle with two of the same Pokémon. Well, only one more participant and things will be in action.
     
  23. I'm honestly excited for this. So, is it just the eight in-universe or are there more people not played by anyone? I would find it kind of odd for such a big event to only have eight participants.
     
  24. Name: Sarah Thrud
    Age: 18
    Gender: Female
    Height: 5'6"
    Weight: 170~ lbs
    Hair Colour: Brown
    Eye Colour: Greyish
    Town of Residence: Spikemuth, Galar
    Awards/Accomplishments: Collected the eight badges of Galar, made it to the semi-finales of the league, noticeably did not use dynamaxing in any capacity.
    Personality: Sarah is a notably stubborn girl. Though the root of that stubbornness is actually optimism. She's very much a believer in things going right, that things will always turn out okay. While this hasn't always worked for Sarah, she doesn't show any signs of stopping believing in such a thing. She's also rather cheerful and happy to meet new people, especially if she recognizes them as famous trainers. Though she does sometimes overreach and come off as a little awkward.

    In battle, Sarah tries to look at a situation in a more complex nature. Something of a puzzle- how can she make her opponents fall into her strategy? What failsafe could she fall back on if that plan fails? What sort of failsafes could her opponent have? This process of thinking has earned her many battles, though she does occasionally overthink or overestimate what her opponent has planned, which often becomes her downfall in a given fight if she continues to overestimate.
    Appearance: Sarah is a stocky, athletic girl with tanned skin. She usually wears a solid black colored tanktop with a white jacket over top of it. Her pants are usually khaki cargo pants, and a pair of lace-up boots. She has slightly longer than shoulder length brown hair, which is occasionally tied back in a ponytail, and a simple black beanie for a hat.
    Backstory: Growing up in Spikemuth, Sarah knew that there was only one thing she wanted to be when she grew up- A real Pokemon trainer. Though she always noticed something, in the local gym battles, that made them so different from the big ones she could see on the television- there was no Dynamaxing. But there was always something special about that, Sarah felt. That her town didn't need a big show of power from either side to show off their passion in battle. It was just down to earth combat on combat.

    Sarah wished to spread that idea throughout Galar. So she, stubbornly, refused to ever use Dynamax in her trainer career. Not that it was really possible, considering her lack of a Dynamaxing band. At the age of 17, she finally set off on this quest, with only a Joltik that she herself captured for a starter. Though her own self imposed challenge was great, it didn't take long for people to notice her unique style of battle. Rather than making a huge impact through dynamaxing, she'd command her Pokemon to avoid attacks, dodging the massive strikes her opponents would throw at her. Now this didn't always work, but Sarah still managed to overcome, making her way all the way to the league itself. She finally ended up losing in the Semi-Finals, landing her a top 4 spot. Ironically, Dynamaxing had little to do with her downfall- Rather a poorly executed move on her part.

    Sarah returned to Spikemuth expecting nothing, only to find she had become something of a local hero. She showed Galar the unique style of battle exclusive to the small city, and earned a great deal of respect in the process. She decided to not continue into a new region just yet, rather sticking around Galar to train herself for a "comeback" or journey in a new region. She'll decide in time, though she then received a letter to compete in a high class tournament...
    Other: What's with whales and being fish? Pretty clearly mammals :p
    Species: Galvantula
    Ability: Compound Eyes
    Items: Silver Powder (Tied in a small pouch)
    Nickname: Gora
    Moves: Electroweb, Energy Ball, Thunderbolt, Bug Buzz, Sticky Web, Bug Bite
    Backstory: As a tiny Joltik, Gora found himself captured by Sarah- Who had taken note of the multitude of Joltik that would constantly climb around the local wires at dusk. Though the two struggled to find common ground at first, Gora did eventually come around to being a good partner to Sarah. After a few dozen berries of course. Now the two are quite inseparable- even if Gora doesn't fit as well on Sarah's shoulder as he used to.
    Personality: While Gora may seem sullen and withdrawn, he's more of an oversized cat that is incidentally a spider. Feed him a berry or two, scratch him on the head, he's putty in one's hands. He's also a little gluttonous thing, easily distracted by food. And fiercely protective of his food, thusly.
    Species: Roserade
    Ability: Natural Cure
    Items: Big Root (Tied under one of his flowers)
    Nickname (If Any): Conn
    Moves (Not Limited to Four): Petal Dance, Giga Drain, Toxic, Leech Seed, Grass Whistle, Stun Spore
    Background: The first caught on Sarah's journey, Conn was never one for outright attacking. Playing to his strengths, Sarah made Conn a dedicated status setter, able to lie down leech seeds and inflict poison, paralysis, or sleep on her opponents, before assaulting them with petal dance. While strategy may seem simple, it's netted Sarah a few victories in her times using Conn.
    Personality: Conn is a showoff, always excited to set the stage so to speak for his petal blizzard finale. Whilst this may seem in conflict with his purpose of setting status, he finds it quite the opposite- to inflict status on his opponents shall always put the attention on him, for his dance.
    Species: Mawile
    Ability: Sheer Force
    Items: Protective Pads
    Nickname: Dinti
    Moves (Not Limited to Four): Play Rough, Sucker Punch, Iron Head, Crunch, Taunt
    Background: Finding poor Dinti alone and crying, Sarah took immense pity on the poor thing. This pity turned to fear once she tried to catch it, accidentally engaging in a life threatening battle with Dinti. Though she had to cheat a bit to get Dinti pinned down, using both Gora's sticky web and Conn's stun spore to immobilize her, Sarah did catch the Mawile for herself. After raising up the courage to let Dinti out again, the Mawile was pacified by a simple dinner. This hasn't stopped Sarah from sleeping with one eye open though...
    Personality: While she plays innocent and sweet, Dinti is nothing like that. She's a brutal little Mawile, with a penchant for violence and an angry rage made plain in battle. Though to be honest, Sarah can't quite tell whether the brutal side is a farce or the sweet side is. In any case, Sarah errs on side of caution whilst dealing with Dinti.
    Species: Weavile
    Ability: Pressure
    Items: Assault Vest
    Nickname: Kira
    Moves: Ice Shard, Night Slash, X-Scissors, Brick Break, Icicle Crash
    Background: Originally a Sneasel who stole Sarah's bag, she captured him in retribution- where he comfortably began to take his place as the premier speedy offense of her team. Though his inability to take hits very well is somewhat fixed by his assault vest, a later purchase while Sarah was improving her team's loadout, he still is no good at taking physical hits.
    Personality: The prankster of the group. Kira has no qualms in messing with the others of his team. Whether it's by poking them, stealing their food, or being just plain mean, Kira will and probably has done it. The only reason the rest of the team hasn't turned on him is because he's very fast and strong. He pulls his weight through and through, again and again. The reliable prankster.
    Species: Falinks
    Ability: Battle Armor
    Items: Muscle Band (Tied around the leader's forehead)
    Nickname: Units (She tried to name them individually, but found it difficult when five of them looked the same...)
    Moves: No Retreat, Megahorn, Close Combat, Iron Defense, Iron Head
    Background: A little marching army that came into contact with Sarah, who was promptly charmed by their cute walk. Little did she know that these were a steeled team of dedicated marchers. When the Units were under attack by a Sandaconda, she came to their rescue- Though she did wonder whether or not they did need her help. Sarah decided to add them to the team when she couldn't get the Units to stop following her. She also attempted to give the Units more of a unique name...But found that hard to do when they all looked the same. She's still trying to figure it out.
    Personality: Five are devout followers of their leader, whom is a devout follower of Sarah. This Falinks pack are very tightly knit, often following one another in a straight line, like most Falinks. All loyal to their trainer, and their team, regardless of any conflict that may arise between them.
    Species: Runerigus
    Ability: Wandering Spirit
    Items: Leftovers (Taped to the back of one of her stone surfaces)
    Nickname (If Any): Runis
    Moves (Not Limited to Four): Will-O-Wisp, Earthquake, Hex, Shadow Claw, Protect
    Background: As Sarah travelled across the Wild Area, she came to the conclusion that her team lacked any Pokémon that could take hits as well as they dealt them out. The answer to this question quickly appeared, as a Runerigus soon trapped her in a set of sandy caverns. In her attempts to escaped, she eventually caught the ghostly painting, dubbing it "Runis". While Runis made an excellent addition to the team, Sarah struggled to get Runis's respect and understanding at first. Eventually, the Runerigus found Sarah's commands in battle to be better thought out than it had once assumed. Out of battle though, the respect is still very far from being gained...Leading Runis to a lot of time in the ball.
    Personality: Runis is a hulking beast of a ghoul, and is very stubborn. Obstinate and locked in her own ways, listening to Sarah during a battle is about the most she'll listen. If left out, she'll mostly just be a lug- though does occasionally prey on smaller Pokémon, which is often a way to quickly go back in her Pokéball.
    Reserve Pokémon: (She's not gonna use these guys, but she has them in the PC. I might have them replace parts of the team if I can't have one or two of the current Pokes on Sarah's team.)
    Skeeve (Barraskewda) - Captured to assist her across water routes and battling. Unpopular among Sarah's team for her rowdiness.
    Knave (Corviknight) - Captured to assist Sarah across the sky and battling. Highly serious and quiet.
