Private/Closed The Lottery Tournament (Discussion)

Discussion in 'Pokémon Role Play Discussion' started by Martin Pine, Jun 24, 2020.

  1. "Welcome back viewers to the exciting quarter finals of this years lottery cup!"
    "For the past few weeks around a thousand trainers have been fighting it out for a place on tonight's show in a flurry of spectacular battles. Finally the numbers have thinned and now the last four trainers fight for the grand prize of 50,000 Poke dollars! Stay tuned for tonight's exciting show!"



    Introduction
    Greetings fellow writers and thank you for showing interest in this RP! I'll attempt to be concise though I am prone to rambling. This will be a tournament RP, if that isn't for you then you don't need to waste your time reading through my warble of words. If that does interest you however do pay attention! I'd like to see this RP through till the end, even though that's not typical for these sorts of RP's or ... me to be fair. (That will change I promise)

    Essentially the plot
    The lottery tournament is a massive competition aired on TV in the Pokemon universe. 1024 Contestants enter and battle it out for a chance to win 50,000 Poke dollars. For the past couple of months the first season of the show has been well underway and it has surprisingly been a massive hit. During the first stages it doesn't air every single battle due to how many participants there are. Instead they show highlights and compilations. When the numbers have thinned out (Around 128 ), they begin to show all the battles. Imagine Britain's/America's got talent but with Pokemon battling instead. By the time the season is near it's end the audience is very invested in the four final contestants.

    Your character decided to take part in this tournament for whatever reason and after winning eight 3v3 battles they have finally arrived at the semi finals. The audience is hooked, the stadium set and the show is just about ready to roll. All the characters are prepared for the two battles they will have to do.

    Side notes
    The show makes money from an entrance fee of 100 Poke dollars, running advertisements and selling seats for audience members (For anyone wondering)
    I'll explain the stadium in RP and how the battles will work out.
    This is set in the anime universe rather than the game. Levels are a not thing, your Pokemon can know more than four moves and the battles are not turn based but more on that later.

    Rules
    1) Okay so like the basic rules of Poke charm's and all that stuff. I've linked it here I would suggest just freshening yourself up on it as whilst they are basic they are important.

    2) Be creative, battling will be like the anime so moves are malleable and can be applied differently. Things like using two moves at once is allowed but don't make it OP, no protects and hyper beams at the same time. Something like a thunder punch in one hand and a fire punch in another is okay or an iron tail and an iron head whilst rolling is cool as well. This isn't really that clear so I'll just say something if you're out of line a little and feel free to call me out as well if you want ; p

    3) Be fair in fights. Try and understand what the other person wants to get out of it as well. Basically no power playing, no dodging everything or auto landing attacks. I know its like the anime but you can't quickly pop a swords dance in an instance before the enemy has anytime to do anything and then launch your own attack.

    4)PG-13, no blood or anything. If you want to try romance have the other persons consent and obviously nothing above the innocent and pure peck that is known as a kiss.

    5) I don't know I'll probably think of something I've forgotten.

    6) HAVE FUN YEAH ; P

    PS: I'm sorry my rules essentially turned into a mild ramble.

    Bio template
    Name: (Include nicknames)
    Age:
    Appearance: (Clothing as well)
    Personality:
    Backstory: (In depth or footnotes I do not mind)
    Pokemon:
    Show history: (Optional: What your character's been like throughout the show)
    About Pokemon
    1) Your character has access to all of their Pokemon. Fights will still be in a 6v6 format of set Pokemon but your trainer can switch their Pokemon between battles as freely as they choose.
    2) When writing down your Pokemon you can leave it at their species and nickname but if you want to add personalities that's fine by me.
    3)In terms of moves and abilities you do not have to note them down as finding them out through the RP would be a lot more interesting I find. The move amount is unlimited but nothing absurd. A Pokemon should have preferred move sets and styles. For example Finion's Infernape is a more physical attacker with only one or two special attacks, his Politoed is a special attacker with only one of two physical attacks and his Zoroark is a mix but relies heavily on the same moves over and over. Styles and strategies are good, even relying on them as flaws are good to have in a character. I dunno. Be creative and fair, interesting but balanced. >-< Once again I'll say something if its a bit much XD
    4) Mega evolution and Legendaries of course have to approved by Admins but battle bonds (As long as they follow the Pokecharm rules) are approved by me (I think?). Feel free to test them out here if you wish. An adequate description of their appearance and abilities and an explanation of how the trainer and the Pokemon found and developed this unique ability will be all I request. Once again, rather lenient, feel free to test them here.
    5) Some other thing I probably forgot.

    Final notes

    This Rp has three spots but that may open up to Seven (The semi finals changing to the quarter finals)
    I'm going to take a Judge dred approach in that I AM THE LAW (At least in this RP)
    @Captain Cardboard The last RP I spearheaded died and you were in it. I'm sorry about that XD I'm gonna try be stubborn with this one if you want in ; p
    Name: Finion Charles (Fin)
    Age: 19
    Appearance: Finion is rather short considering his age, only standing at 5'4 feet tall. Despite his abnormal height he's quite healthy, not in the best of shape but not in the worst either. His complexion is pale and soft, his almost colourless face sharply contrasted by his his medium length orange hair and deep green eyes. He does not appear ghostly due to the gentleness of his features and the smile that is usually on his face. For clothing he often wears a blue shirt and an orange waist coat as well as dark blue jeans. He has a pair of goggles around his neck but he does not wear a hat anymore. (Essentially image the profile pic but older, with longer hair and without a hat)
    Personality: To put it simply, Finion is rather awkward. He tends to ramble, miss social cues and not really know what to say in certain situations. The latter of these issues is more rare now but he does sometimes struggle with it. His awkwardness often provokes his apologetic nature, Finion usually being sorry for things he didn't really need to apologise for. He gets nervous around people, not the typical kind of nervous but the nervousness that leads to never shutting up or just talking to much. Get past this though and Finion is a very kind and friendly person. He likes to keep the peace and make sure everyone getting along with everyone. His self confidence could use some working on but an area where its at its best is in battle. He's a rather skilled battler, thinking outside the box when he can and trusting in his Pokemon whilst also knowing their limits. Getting him stuck is a rare occasion but it should it happen its one of the most effective ways to beat him.
    Backstory: Surprisingly Finion's childhood was not based around Pokemon. It was one of his interests but he found more joy in board games like chess and subjects in school. Academically he was amazing and in chess he was a monster. Friends was not something he was too good with. He didn't do typical children things, he was much more focused on studying and learning rather than playing. Whilst fascinated by Pokemon, Finion never particularly dreamed to become a trainer, believing his calling in life was to be a researcher. That was until a rather fateful day when he was only eight years old. His parents, who own a berry farm close to twinleaf town, was rather used to having pests eating their crops. They tolerated only a certain amount of their berries being eaten before taking action. When there was a problematic Pokemon on the farm the whole family was usually called into action, this lead to Finion being sent to search the fields with one of his parents Growlithes. It wasn't long before they came across the culprit. A tiny and furry Pachirisu. It must've had one heck of a stomach as it was solely responsible for the large exodus of berries. Finion, for some odd reason, felt a connection to the squirrel Pokemon and so instead of chasing it away he decided to keep it. His parents happy obliged and for the next 6 years Finion grew up with a rather electrifying friend accompanying him through his childhood.


    At the age of fourteen Finion finally set off on his journey to become a trainer. In the 6 years he had with Sparky his ambitions had changed. The little squirrel had ignited a fire in Finion's heart, one to become a Pokemon master. His childhood of chess and science had shaped him into a fine strategist but his lack of experience with Pokemon lead to him being very, very clunky. The journey throughout Sinnoh was a rough one to begin with. Professor Rowan was kind enough to gift Finion with a Chimchar, who he promptly named Blitz and grew close too. Throughout his journey in Sinnoh he grew into a more competent trainer, learning the ways of Pokemon battle and growing a team. Near the end of his journey he had a full team of six Pokemon. Sparky, Blitz, Tox, Hop, Coconut and Garfield. Along with them he faced the Pokemon league and whilst he won a few battles he came no where near the finals. He was not saddened by his defeat, he was rather happy to of even started his journey, to of met the people he did and befriended the Pokemon he had. His journey in Sinnoh was over ... but he still thirsted for adventure.


    At 15 he travelled to another region, bringing only Sparky with him to Hoenn to start a new journey all over again. His team from Sinnoh remained at his berry farm, helping his parents out around the house and on the fields. Being a more experienced trainer Finion easily went through the gym challenge and to the Pokemon league, building yet another team with Pokemon he bonded with. In this region he faced his biggest challenge yet. People, socialising, friends. He travelled with a group, Samuel and Georgia. It was difficult at first and Finion mostly kept to himself but as they continued to travel he grew close to them, befriend them. By the end of their journey they had all completed the gym challenge and were competing in the ever grande conference. It was a brilliant competition, one where Finion found himself more confidently conversing with people and contestants. Once again he had it a few brackets in only to be defeated by Samuel. He took it personally but not badly. It sparked a healthy rivalry between the two of them which is still ignited to this day.


    From the age of 15 to 17 he travelled around two more regions, Unova and Kalos. He continued to build on his collection of Pokemon whilst still not forgetting his old ones. In between each adventure he'd come home to spend a good amount of time with his friends. He saw all his Pokemon as friends, as individuals and whilst he liked his family growing he stopped travelling from region to region and building up team after team. From 17 he focused on tournaments and competitions, entering and participating in many of them. He cycled through his Pokemon so they'd all have a chance to participate in such big competitions. It was in these competitions where Finion met a fair few amount of people, saw amazing battles and humbly realised how far he had to go to become a Pokemon trainer.
    Name: Sparky
    Species: Pachirisu
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Cheeky, over confidence. Sparky's mouth is almost as big as his stomach and considering he can devour 5 plates full of berries in no less than a minute that's no understatement. Despite how cocky the little squirrel is he can be civil and focused should the occasion call for it. In battle he follows Finion's commands perfectly and trusts his trainer completely.

    Name:
    Blitz
    Species: Infernape
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Blitz is a friendly and polite Infernape but above all else he is selfless. He loves to battle honourably and push himself to his absolute limits and beyond. Outside of battle he'll help anyone in anyway his can, including opposing Pokemon with any struggles or problems they have.

    Name:
    Tox
    Species: Toxicroak
    Gender: Male
    Personality: He's unbelievably sly. Like Blitz he loves to battle, having great respect for Pokemon that present a challenge for him. He's not exactly a dirty fighter but he isn't a clean one either and he will do anything to win a battle. He is often being put in check by Blitz or Coconut for his attitude towards other Pokemon. Surprisingly he's very kind and supportive of Hop.

    Name:
    Hop
    Species: Politoed
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Hop is a very happy go lucky Pokemon. She is constantly jolly and having fun though this can lead to her being totally oblivious at points. She's not stranger to a hug and loves dishing them out and no matter what she will never harbour any hard feelings towards Pokemon or people.

    Name:
    Coconut
    Species: Tropius (Shiny)
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Coconut is mother number 1 of the group. She's kind and caring in the gentle and soft way but should the need arise to defend her family or fight in a battle she's a focused and dangerous Pokemon.

    Name: Garfield
    Species: Garchomp
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Angry. Garfield is a very angry pokemon. He craves the battle as its the only way he can get his frustration out or have any fun. He barely listens to Finion but despite this he's still succeeds in many fights. Despite being almost constantly enraged he is not fool and surprisingly clever. Only a few Pokemon on Finion's team can calm this raging beast.

    Name:
    Lily
    Species: Vaporeon
    Gender: Female
    Personality: A very quiet Pokemon who mostly keeps to herself. She seems to get confused when people or Pokemon interact with her but she remains calm and is nice in her replies. In short she is rather introverted but she doesn't push anyone away.

    Name: Gaia
    Species: Flygon
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Gaia acts as the big sister of Finion's Pokefamily. She's energetic, over the top and loves to chatter away and play with anybody or anymon. She can be caring and comforting when she needs to be however and like Hop she is an excellent hugger.

    Name:
    Spuddy
    Species: Sceptile
    Gender: Male
    Personality: The coolest member of Finion's Pokefamily, at least that's what he thinks of himself. Like Tox he is a bit cocky but like blitz he is honourable. He's a strange mix of respectful and disrespectful but above it all he is a confident battler.

    Name:
    Milly
    Species: Milotic
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Mom number 2 of the group, Milly is supportive and helpful to any Pokemon that comes to her aid. Like Coconut she can be a viscous battler but she always maintains her grace and serenity. She is always calm and relaxed no matter what, making her a rather level thinker and good at calming other down.

    Name:
    Roger
    Species: Bisharp
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Roger is essentially Tox 2.0. He's a dirty fighter and almost borderline cruel. He'll rarely acknowledge a good Pokemon and never mention one of his defeats. Out of all of Finion's Pokemon he is probably the most unkind. Despite all the factors him and Tox do not get along AT ALL.

    Name:
    Raven
    Species: Zoroark
    Gender: Female.
    Personality:
    The third mom of the group takes no nonsense from anyone, not even Finion. She's blunt and straight to the point, a more tough love kind of Pokemon than a soft one. Despite her hard exterior she cares deeply for almost every Pokemon on Finion's team and for her own trainer.

    Name:
    George
    Species: Torterra
    Gender: Male
    Personality: George is an extremely relaxed kind of Pokemon. He snoozes most of the time and when he's awake he's a slow and chilled out Pokemon. He can be adept in battle but he'd much rather sleep than fight.

    Name:
    Lapuer
    Species: Golurk
    Gender: Genderless
    Personality: Stoic, robot like. Lapuer does not have much of personality other than that. He shows interest and curiosity at points but other than that he is a focused Pokemon ready to listen to commands.

    Name:
    Lee
    Species: Hakamo-o
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Lee is like a frustrated teen. He's desperate to prove himself in battle, being a proud and honourable fighter. His confidence is a tame one and he has no problem with being friendly towards the enemy. Should he be embarrassed or should his pride be damaged however he tends to be annoyed, confrontational and not very nice at all.

    Name:
    Zeus
    Species: Pidgeot
    Gender: Male
    Personality: A loyal and obedient Pokemon, he is a proud bird who is as humble as can be.

    Name:
    Charlotte
    Species: Gogoat
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Charlotte is obsessed with improving her speed, strength and durability. She is almost completely focused on improving herself to become a better battler. Socialising is something she struggles with, less so because she can't do it but more so because she just feels awkward doing it. She keeps to herself but won't push anyone away, just like Lily.

    Name:
    Anguirus
    Species: Rhydon
    Gender: Male
    Personality: In battles he likes to be fierce and imposing, aggressive and scary but outside of them ... he's a big old softy. He likes to give big hugs and be very friendly. He's very accident prone and can usually be found guiltily rubbing the back of his head with a big shaky grin. He's terrified of small Pokemon. He will not battle a Joltik no matter what.

    Name:
    Frilly
    Species: Aurorus
    Gender: Female
    Personality: The ultimate mom of the group. With Milly's grace, Raven's sternness and Coconuts kindness she always knows what to do to comfort a Pokemon, diffuse a situation or make anybody feel relaxed and welcome.

    Show history: Finion has been using a different group of Pokemon for every 3v3, usually starting off with Sparky but then introducing two new Pokemon. Along with his access of pocket monsters he's also been shown to have skill, strategy and the ability to be able to think on the spot whether it be a change in strategy or a counter to someone elses. Admittedly he's been a bit lucky and now with most of his Pokemon revealed Finion no longer has any surprises up his sleeve.​

    For half an hour I've been struggling with spoilers but it's done.

  2. Heck yeah, dude! I'm totally in!
     
  3. Here he is! The hero!

    Name:
    Shiori Fujimoto, aka Karpman
    Age: 24
    Appearance: Shiori stands at 6 feet and weighs 175 pounds. His hair is black, scruffy, and long. It goes down about halfway down his back, and he usually keeps it in a ponytail because it tends to floof up. Well, not up. More wider. His eyes are blue. Shiori is also pretty well built, seeing as most of his roles in movies have been kinda superheroes. Shiori has three main outfits. His first is his normal clothes. He usually wears simple clothes, a t-shirt, jeans. Basic clothes, as well as sunglasses and tennis shoes. Shiori's second outfit is his Karpman costume. It's pretty low cost, just a red tracksuit along with a Magikarp mask. The Magikarp mask covers his whole head. He wore this when he competed in tournaments. His third outfit is the Marine Knight Gyarados costume he wore while in the movies Knights of the Dragonic Order I and II, as well as The Poke-Heroes: Team Up. It's an aqua blue chestplate with shoulders, as well as aqua blue leg greaves. Also, a cape and a mask that looks like a Gyarados mouth to cover his mouth and nose. While in this costume, Shiori's hair is no longer in a ponytail and is instead loose on his back. Shiori also wears dark makeup around his eyes, to give them a more intense look. To finish off the look, Shiori wears blue gloves and carries a telescopic golden trident. It's a prop.
    Personality: Shiori has a very dramatic, eccentric, and well... A bit goofy personality. He tries to act in a "heroic" fashion quite a bit, but is also quite relaxed and easygoing. When it comes to battling Pokemon, Shiori gets nervous and hesitates a lot. He found that he was able to overcome this anxiety through acting. As long as he was wearing a mask, it wasn't really him battling the Pokemon. No, it was instead a hero that always had a plan and never gave up! Now that he's gotten a bit older and more confident, Shiori no longer needs a mask to battle Pokemon. However, when he does battle he does tend to act more dramatic and intense.
    Backstory: Shiori grew up as the son of a fisherman in Vermilion City. He had many siblings, but his family was poor. In order to help his family earn more money, Shiori went out into the world to earn money as a Pokemon Trainer. He really enjoyed battling, even if he wasn't very good at it. All the losses he took severely damaged his confidence, and he found that the only way to battle well was to act like someone else. So he made up a hero and acted like one, and continues to travel around battling and trying to earn money to send back to his family in Vermilion City. As of now, he has gotten a job as an actor and had a role in the Invaders movie, where he was a fan-favorite character of a hacker that turns good and helps the defense force.
    Pokemon: Tsunamu the Gyarados, Raza the Zoroark, Beast the Magikarp, Riptide the Feebas, Courage the Braviary, Tethys the Milotic

  4. Man, this sounds like fun, but I am in no way experienced in battle writing. Do you have any advice for beginners? Cause I do not want to miss out on this.
     
  5. @luxraystan I am terrible at giving advice but I would say try and follow the rules and don’t be afraid to loose xD Watch some battles from the Pokemon anime as well maybe? @Captain Cardboard do you have anything to add?

  6. I just watched a few of the battles from I believe Xyz and the Indigo League, it's so much different then the games, which I have grown so used to, I've never watched the pokemon anime before, so this was very mind-opening for me. I'll send my character application as soon as it's done.

  7. @luxraystan There'll be room for some character development as well. I'm thinking of having a sort of spectators room for the people that aren't battling ;p
    @Captain Cardboard Accepted. I'm so happy to see Shiori again

  8. Name: Persophone.

    Nicknames: None.

    Age:20.

    Appearance: Standing at a height of 5’6, with a weight of 167 lbs. Persephone has rose-colored hair and dark brown roots, it reaches her elbows and she has side-swept bangs that are dyed the same color as her roots. Her eyes are deep burgundy, being upturned with dark brown, downturned eyebrows. She usually wears a white turtle-neck with a more flowy look to it, and a black, knee-length shirt that is more of a business look to it than an average ‘school-girl’ skirt, and black flats.

    Personality: Persophone is a rude woman with no sense of compassion for others than herself and her pokemon. She’s quite cocky, believing that she is superior to others in most situations, mainly on social cue. But despite her rude nature she is fairly quiet and is not usually lashing out as most would think because of her attitude towards others. And because of this, her pokemon have grown to take on some of her personality traits. But despite all of this, she has a soft spot for pokemon and cares for her team very much.

    Backstory: Born and raised in Anistar City, Kalos, Persophone was raised by her grandmother and grandfather. They were very classy, and fairly wealthy people with no sense of compassion and only wanting more than what they already had. The taught Persophone that people higher up on the wealth and social cue were more powerful and worth more than the people who weren't lucky enough to receive these benefits of life, and because of this, Persophone began growing disapproval of those below her family's standards. She became more cocky and aggressive during the years of her childhood, and when she turned ten, her grandparents allowed her to leave Anistar and begin her journey as a pokemon trainer. She chose Chespin as her starter and nicknamed him Chester. Ever since Persophone's been training as hard as she could to reach her grandparent's expectations, and when the Lottery Tournament came to her attention, she knew that it would help boost her grandparent's opinions on her, and as such, she entered the tournament.

    Pokemon: Chester/Species; male Chesnaught.
    ||
    Aurora/Species; female Aurorus.
    ||
    Never/Species; female Noivern.
    ||
    Alter/Species; male Altaria.

    ||
    Aero/Species; male Ampharos.
    ||
    Didi/Species; female Weavile.
    ||
    Venzo/Species; male Trevenant.

    Show history: Throughout the show, Persophone has been seen as cocky, quiet, and aggressive in her battles. Her battle style has been seen as reckless, yet successful.

    Birthplace: Canalave City Sinnoh
    First Pokémon (Optional): Bastion the Beldum (Now a Metagross)/Rose the Ferroseed (Now a Ferrothorn)
    Occupation (Optional): Frontier Brain/Ruin Master
    Likes: high level competitive battling, creating new and unique battle strategies, exploring the world
    Dislikes: Unnecessary social interactions,
    Fears: Being Judged as a failure or disappointment
    Clothing/ Accessories/ Appearance: Ajax is more often then not seen in a plain white T-shirt, a black leather trench coat, dark grey jeans and tall black combat boots.
    Badges (Required): All 60 badges from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova (even battling all three gym leaders in Striaton City and both Iris and Drayden in Opelucid City), Kalos and Galar as well as all Frontier Symbols from the Hoenn and Sinnoh Battle Frontiers
    Achievements: First individual to be awarded the title of Frontier Master.

    Personality: Quiet and somewhat antisocial, Ajax doesn't really see the point in unnecessary social interactions or superficial conversation, he is deeply respectful of individuals who have proven their strength and worthiness of his respect, otherwise he is prone to being extremely cold and passive aggressive.

    Backstory
    Ajax was born in Canalave city where he lives until he was about 8, however following the death of his mother Rose, he was moved around a lot going between towns and cities around Sinnoh. It was during a 3 month stay in the resort area that Ajax came across a badly hurt Beldum who had also been orphaned, Ajax adopted the little Beldum and named him Bastion.

    Ajax shared everything with Bastion, any food he got he offered to the Beldum, any spare time they had was spent training and spending time together. Ajax was then fostered under the Canalave Gym Leader Byron who gifted him an pokemon egg. Which soon hatched into a Ferroseed adequately name Rose in honor of Ajax's mother.

    Thanks to a loop-hole in the Sinnoh league rules Ajax was allowed to use Bastion and Rose as his starting Pokemon and so begun their journey across the Sinnoh Region.

    It took a long time but Ajax and a slowly expanding roster finally managed to earn enough badges to take part in the Sinnoh League Conference, where he managed to make it to the final 8 losing to a mega Houndoom, but Ajax wasn't deterred he had heard stories of Steven the Hoenn champion using a Mega Metagross so he decided to head for Hoenn in search of the secret to mega evolution.

    While in Hoenn Ajax came across the Battle Pyramid and was invited to challenge Brandon in a 1v1 exhibition match, Ajax accepted but said he needed a week to prepare himself and his Pokémon for the battle. In the end Bastion was able to single handedly take down Regice in a very long and hard fought battle, Brandon impressed by the young trainers skill offered him a keystone necklace and an offer of a permanent position onboard the Battle Pyramid.

    Ajax went on to collect the rest of the badges he needed to participate in the Hoenn League conference, where in which he met Steven and was asked to show him the power of their bond through a battle, Ajax ended up losing the battle very quickly as Bastion was not able to keep up with the speed of Stevens attacks. Steven had been expecting this and the test was not to defeat him but to ensure that Ajx and Bastion would not give up when facing terrible odds, handing the trainer a megastone.

    From Hoenn, Ajax went on to travel the world, participating in the Kanto, Johto and Unovan leagues and Elite four amassing a reasonable following of fans, so much so he was asked to partake in a unified effort against the reemergence of Team Plasma, being commended for his work in assisting the Unovan government. Following this Ajax was approached by a representative of the Kalosian Government to participate in a similar initiative. Not long after he was officially recruited by the Kalos Police as part of a task-force to track down the remnants of Team Flare, following the organisations collapse and splintering to various tiny unaffiliated groups. Working for the team was some of the most intense time of Ajax's life, facing unknown risks and dangers every day, and though he loved the adrenaline rush of bursting through doors to arrest Flare Remnants it forced the then 20 year old to wake up and see the reality of the world. The task-force was disbanded following a failed operation that caused the death of a member and Ajax lost his love for battling, he took his new excess of free time to wander his away through life as he travelled the world eventually settling down on a private island just off the coast of Akala Island Alola. He lived here mostly isolated for the entirety of his year long sabbatical before returning to Sinnoh.

    The new Ajax was far more reserved and reflective. His brash adrenaline junkie ways were long gone in favour of a calculated and calm demeanor. This new demeanor also brought with it a drive to forge his own path and independently find his way in the world. He re-challenged the Sinnoh League, breezing though the group stage and Elite Four, Facing off against Cynthia in what some consider to be one of the greatest battles the league had ever seen. Satisfied he had regained his edge and passion for battling Ajax chose to give up his Champion title and finally make that call to Brandon but instead of accepting the position on-board the Battle Pyramid he asked Brandon for help establishing his own Battle facility in the abandoned ruins of Isla Nocturne, a small island west of the Battle-Zone and north of the Pokemon League. The Elder Frontier Brain simply chuckled and plotted a course to the island. For the next few years Ajax alternated his time between the newly christened Battle Ruins and travelling in search to strong opponents, before long the Battle Ruins garnered a notorious reputation as arguably the toughest Battle Facility in Sinnoh possibly even the world, aided by the sheer difficulty of getting to the facility. It had been designed that way to test trainers ability to utilize their Pokemon outside of battle as few if any captains or pilots came within a certain radius of the island believing it to be haunted. For the next few years Ajax continued to split his time between the Battle Ruins and travelling the world in search of extremely skilled trainers to further hone his battling skils

    Battle Style:
    Ajax specializes in Double Battles, seeing them as far superior to the single battle format allowing battlers to truly showcase their strategic ability. As such this is his preferred method of battling, though his single battle skills are still nigh unmatched. In battle Ajax's commands consist primarily of commanding his Pokemon to use specific special or combo moves, otherwise he remains almost completely silent. His Pokemon have been trained to such a level of mutual understanding with Ajax and each other that they can act as almost one entity, one shared mind.

  11. @Frontier Master Accepted, good to have you ;p

    Also a few things:
    Should we have one battle at a time or shall we do two at once to keep everyone busy because I know they can drag and could leave the others a bit bored. That being said if we had one battle at a time people could socialise in the spectators room.

    I hadn't added this in bio at the start which is my bad but @Captain Cardboard and @Frontier Master could you add a little section called show history like @luxraystan did. Just basically how they've been doing in the show, how their 3v3 battles have been going.

    @Captain Cardboard Should Finion and Shiori know each other again or should we say they've never met XD

    Does anyone have any preferences on who they wish to battle first, I could randomise but if someone want's to pick I'm cool.

    I'll start writing up the Rp now, hopefully be up by tonight or this morning depending on how efficient I am. (Got chores and what not)

  12. I’ll add my below because trying to edit such a large post is hard on my phone

    Show history:
    Ajax’s existing game on the competitive battling circuit earned him an early swath of popularity even before his first battle began. His most recent victory, a one-sided battle against a minor league Normal type gym leader from Galar, had been a single Pokémon Sweep, his Hakamo-o Wozu reveling in the roar of the crowd as he slipped between attacks and delivered ones of his own. Ending the battle with a triumphant cry and a raised fist.
    The other previous seven battles had largely been the same, with Ajax rarely losing more than a single Pokémon in his battles. Despite his preference of double battles his skills for Single battles are still top notch

  13. @Martin Pine Which ever one you would prefer for Fineon and Shiori knowing each other. I'll write in Shiori's battle history later.

  14. @Captain Cardboard I think we should have them know each other XD

    Final question before I begin: Should there be a little bit of time before the tournament for everyone to talk to each other and get to know one another or should we just get straight into the lottery tournament/show
     
  15. Apologies for being absent for the past two days, I have been fairly busy and will be for the next few weeks, but will try my best to be active.

  17. Also, I think it would be good to have the spectators room, just so everyone else doesn't get bored while waiting for their turn in battle and as well good for character development, as you stated in previous replies.
     
  18. Show History
    At the start, the show wasn't exactly too kind to Shiori. They painted him as a more comical character, and one who's time on this show would likely be short lived. After all, the guy dressed up in a fake superhero costume, acted goofy, called himself a 'hero'! Even if he was a rather popular up-and-coming actor, the show made it seem like he didn't stand a chance in the tournament.

    But then he won his battle. And won again. And kept winning battles. Shiori's battles were always very rough, tense, and exciting. For each of them, Shiori never broke from his 'Marine Knight Gyarados' character. Most fan theories were that this was some sort of a marketing ploy for the upcoming 'Knights of the Draconic Order' movie (based off the popular comic series). But in reality, Shiori just really liked the character and costume.

  19. @Martin Pine Actually, I'm sorry dude. I'm going to be taking a break from Pokecharms for a while, and didn't realize I was going to be doing so until recently. I'm sorry, this seems like a really fun RP but i just don't have the time for it.

  20. @Captain Cardboard It's alright my guy ;p Do you know how long the break will be because I'm willing to hold your spot if it's not long. If you dunno though is it alright if I open the slot up for someone else?
     
  21. I have no clue as to how long it'll be, maybe a few months. You should probably open up the slot for someone else!

    DarkHydraT likes this.
  27. Name: Toby Taylor. Nickname: The stone-cold competitor, Your Cockyness

    Age: 20

    Appearance: Standing at 6'10 and weighing 143 pounds, Toby has fair skin, brown eyes and neatly combed brown hair that reaches his shoulders. He tends to wear a purple trenchcoat with black clothes underneath it, although he sometimes switches it up by wearing a pristine red suit when the occasion calls for it. Lately he's taken to wearing a flat cap, mostly because it is easier to avoid eye contact that way. Over the years, the stress on his shoulders by rebuilding the Burned Tower and managing events took its toll in slight bags under his eyes and a couple of gray hairs he dyes religiously and denies the existence of even harder.

    Personality: Toby enjoys toying with his opponents, spreading status conditions around left and right and making it look like his opponent is in control before ruthlessly taking control back into his own hands with one devestating blow. Even though he is a capable battler, he tends to mess with his opponents by acting as if all of his moves are purely luck or by acting overly confident. Outside of battle he is somewhat sarcastic, making snide remarks to mock others and maintaining a slightly snobbish demeanor. He tends to give people patronizing nicknames, usually based on their appearance or background.
    He looks down on practically everyone who isn't himself, from Ecruteak, elderly or if they haven't proven their worth in a battle. Quite literally prideful to a fault, he tends to underestimate anyone who he deems inadequate. He also has a incredible hatred of stairs, though no one really knows why.

    Backstory: Born in a wealthy family, Toby was raised in the upper echelons of society. As a resident of Ecruteak City, he was taught to respect history, myths and the dead. He was a lively child, though he was sheltered from the regular citizens in fear that he would get 'corrupted' by them. Because of this, he began to view the regular person as lesser than him and himself as the epitome of class and manners. Once he was old enough to wander the world, he went all over the world to find Pokémon that matched his vision of power and class or those with powers that were too much for the commoners to understand.

    Pokémon:
    Nickname: Scylla
    Species: Hydreigon
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Scylla is in one word, ruthless. She doesn't share the same toying sentiment as her trainer, preferring to end the fight as soon as possible with as much destruction as possible. She sees other Pokémon as nothing but prey, even her own team members are not always safe from her. For this reason Toby rarely lets her out of her Pokéball around others.

    Nickname: Spectre
    Species: Gengar
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Spectre is a prankster and loves to mess with others. Just as self-centered as his trainer, he loves to be the center of attention and loves to toy with his opponents. Social as anything, he could be right in front of you at a moment's notice to get your attention or to play a trick on you.

    Nickname: Cecelia
    Species: Florges
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Cecelia is surprisingly enough not vain in the slightest. Instead she is not afraid to get dirty and doesn't really care about her appearance, prioritizing others above herself. She is more of a supporting Pokémon than a fighter, but she refuses to be seen as a weakling.

    Nickname: Marionette
    Species: Mr. Mime
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Marionette loves to annoy people, making invisible walls right in front of them and laughing at them. She is always up for a prank, and Spectre knows that. They often mess around together and harass people.

    Nickname: Millennium
    Species: Claydol
    Gender: Genderless
    Personality: Millennium is quiet, very quiet. Very rarely do they make a whirring noise to show that they're content. They are respected by most of the team members, even Scylla somewhat tolerates them. Capable of calming almost every single member, only being rivalled by Toby, they are incredibly smart and generally find a way to abuse the weakness of their opponent.

    Nickname: Powerwash
    Species: Rotom-Wash
    Gender: Genderless
    Personality: Powerwash is pretty timid, not really a fan of the spotlight and sticking to the shadows. As long as they are left alone, they are happy. Generally Cecelia is around them to support them.

    Show history: Toby didn't talk much during the early stages of the show, refusing to give interviews or respond to any fans who yelled his name. What he lacked in social interactions, he made up for in the ring. He almost always started with his ace Pokémon Hydreigon, after which most fights were decided after a couple of moves with a couple of exceptions thrown into the mix as a Gengar was used at times before it made way for the Brutal Pokémon. As time went on, he became more vocal and the Johtonian had no problem with voicing his displeasure when facing an opponent not worth his time. Although his Pokémon are almost all unknown, it is rumored that all of them are as strong as the three-headed Dragon type. After a few matches, everyone knew one thing for sure: when the Dusk Ball flies through the air, the match is about to end.
     
  28. @DarkHydraT Gladly accepted, you can make a post in the RP which is already up. I gotta hope Frontier master comes on at some point so we can get this thing on the road

  30. Thanks for the heads up ;p I may tweak the starting post a little in that time, nothing too major I just think I'll just have them entering the room one by one just before the show begins.

    @luxraystan This may affect your post and you may have to redo it a little, sorry >-< Essentially you'll have to write your character being led to the waiting room and then entering it. It'll allow us to write whilst we wait however ;p

  32. Shen: King of the Mist

    Shen: King of the Mist Previously Shen: Ghost Gym Leader

    Hey, this Rp looks interesting. Hope you don’t mind me dropping in?


    Name:
    Brace ‘the wild boy’ Jogen.
    Age: 12
    Appearance: Brace’s clothing colors are as wild as his personality, not being able to decide between colors. His tee shirt is white at first but quickly splinters off into Green, blue, red, and purple corners. He wears baggy shorts and black fingerless gloves. He had black hair on the sides of his head and scruffy orange hair spiked wildly on the front of his face.

    Personality: Brace is wild and adventurous. He has a knack for being immature, obsessed with having fun and eating food. He’s a bit on the dumb side and always plays fair. In fact, he treats everything like a game, even life. He refers to meeting with friends as upping his charisma stat and learning something new as leveling up.

    Backstory: a wild child and an unknowing prodigy of Pokémon, he had the unique ability to cause trouble in his little town of Chicole village in the Region of Almia. He always had good intentions but always ended up causing trouble. This caused him not to be trusted, which disheartened the boy.

    He ran into the woods to feel better, crying his little heart out at a stream before some wild Pokémon came to comfort him. These pokemon being Pansage, Panpour, Pansear, and aipom. These pokemon cheered him up by taking him out to play. He grew a few years with them, having a better childhood with them. Things began to look brighter.

    One day, he decided to strike out into the world, seeing more than his lowly little town and explore the globe. His friends, not wanting to abandon their friend in his time of need jointly decided to come with him. He made a series of stumbles and wrong turns, but nothing too damaging to himself or his pride. Somehow he found himself roped into a tourney, the grand prize being too much to resist.


    Pokemon:

    Name: Red
    Species: Pansear
    Personality: He has a flaming spirit and a heart brimming with energy. Red is the one to always fling the first punch and the first one to laugh at someone’s expense. While a little prideful and full of himself, he cares deeply about his friends...and food. He’s considered the warrior of the group.

    Name: Blue
    Species: Panpour
    Personality: Always cool and collected, Blue is the brains behind the operation. You’ll never see him angry, but instead being the embodiment of mellow. He’s often seen as the cool one.

    Name: Green
    Species: Pansage
    Personality: Green is a pacifist, never wanting to attack someone directly. A little timid and all about defenses, Green is the peace keeper of the group, and also the most emotional. He is quick to feel empathy toward someone.

    Name: Purple
    Species: Aipom
    Peronality: addicted to fun. Aipom doesn’t have a serious bone in it’s body. It can always be seen dancing happily around, making fun faces, or some other antic. It’s a bouncy little fella that won’t take a situation serious to save it’s life.

    Name: Piggy
    Species: Primeape.
    Personality: Angry. Angry. ANGRY! Piggy was first found when Brace thought he was a wild pig, upsetting him and punting the kid into a tree. It was only after a long heated battle was he eventually subdued. Nowadays, he is extremely protective of his trainer but still retained his anger.

    Name: Beastie
    Species: Vigroth
    Personality: Beastie is fast and dangerous, and being his latest memeber to the team...highly untrained. It acts rabid, attacking most things in sight whilst foaming at the mouth. It only seems temporarily tame when given food.

    Show history: When this trainer entered the tournament, most laughed at his small stature and age. He proved remarkably strong despite his attitude and age, perhaps through luck? No one was for sure, but he won consistently, having a family like bond with his Star four pokemon. This connection was an edge on his opponet’s, as well as their tricky tactics. Whenever he’s seen he always had his four main pokemon out at all times...even during formal functions or interviews. He didn’t like to abide by social norms, making him an oddball
     
  33. @Shen: King of the Mist I like the character but we're already at four people so the RP's full :< Sorry. If a space opens up again I'll be sure to let you know though.
