There seems to be a lot of people eager for this... Is there still room?
I'm astonished to be honest. This came to me as a half-baked idea from lack of sleep.Shakomaru said:There seems to be a lot of people eager for this... Is there still room?

Name: Viola Summers
Appearance: Viola's got long, black hair that reaches all the way down her back. She usually keeps it in a ponytail so it doesn't go just everywhere. On rare occasions does she have it braided all the way, but usually just in a ponytail. She's also got green eyes. Viola stands at about 5'9" and doesn't have a big chest. Her skin is a bit pale from staying indoors a lot. She typically wears a pair of black jeans, red t-shirt with small sleeves and sneakers. She will put on a sweater if it gets cold, but usually never aside from then. She's got a scar on her right cheek from a slash from Voltra when she met her. She wears a red Xtransciever on her left wrist.
Personality: Viola is a friendly person, but competitive. She likes to make friends and get to know others, and will help if she can. She also likes to compete and get better, if only for herself. She does think she's good at what she does, but woe be to the one who shows they are better, because that's when her spirit fires up and her competitive side shows. Mostly, it's in Pokemon battles where she gets competitive, but there are a few other things she get competitive in as well. But that shouldn't scare anyone away from her because she's really a nice person and wouldn't hurt anyone.
Biography: Viola was born and raised in Driftveil City, Unova. Her father traveled around the world and her mother was an archaeologist, which meant that she was often alone at home or just with her mother, though there was the rare time when all three of them were together. She would sometimes go with her mother to Twist Mountain where she would dig up fossils, but that didn't happen often. One time, when she was around 12, she thought to take a walk, Viola went to the Celestial Tower because she had never been there before, but she had heard that it was a graveyard tower for Pokemon. She thought it was sad, but she wanted to check it out. Once inside, she went up to the second floor of it and was spooked by a Litwick in there. She screamed from having been scared and hid behind a tombstone. The Litwick felt sorry for scaring her and tried to apologize to her. Viola was still spooked, but felt that the Litwick didn't want to do her harm. She returned to Twist Mountain where her mother was with the Litwick following her. She named her Zora, which was a name she'd seen somewhere and sounded cool.
Since her mother dug up so many fossils sometimes, she thought to give her daughter one of them as a birthday present for Viola's 18th birthday. Viola liked the fossil she'd been handed, a Dome Fossil, and they both went to Nacrene City to have it revived. A Kabuto was brought to her and she liked it just like the fossil it came out of. He and Zora didn't really like each other at first, but learned to with time. She wasn't really feeling creative when she named him Kabu, but he seemed to like it, so she wasn't going to change it. Neither Pokemon had seen battle as of yet, but around the time she turned 19 she started to take interest in Pokemon battles. Zora she'd put in a Dusk Ball, since it seemed fitting, and Kabu got a shiny Premier Ball. For a while after, Viola battled a lot of trainers. She didn't always win, but worked towards becoming better with the help of Zora and Kabu.
On her 20th birthday, her father came home from his travels and all three of them celebrated Viola's birthday together, going to the amusement park in Nimbasa City. Even though she was this old, she still enjoyed it, even if it was with her parents. The whole day was spent with them three hanging out, which was a happy day for them all because of how rarely her father was at home, even though he kept contact with them regularly on his travels. Once the day was at an end and they all went home, her father gave her a present. It was an Ultra Ball, but the real present was inside and, as her father said, from Sinnoh. She released the Pokemon inside it and a Bronzor appeared. Happy with her present, she hugged her father and named the Bronzor Bronze. She wasn't feeling creative, but it was good enough for her and the Bronzor, who liked this new trainer.
Her travels for battles brought her to Chargestone Cave when she was around 21. With a decent amount of Dusk Balls in her pocket, she traveled through it, fighting some of the trainers she found inside there. She was also attacked by one vicious Joltik, getting a slash on her cheek, and called upon Zora to handle the situation. The two Pokemon battled, and after a nasty Flamethrower from Zora, the Joltik was beaten. Viola threw a Dusk Ball at it and after a few shakes, the button clicked and it was caught, making it the first Pokemon she had actually caught herself. She named the Joltik Voltra, which seemed fitting. Voltra grew to like her Trainer after that and became a great Pokemon on her team. A man named Matthias A. Delaque came up to her and asked her if she was alright, then took care of the cut she had gotten from Voltra. After that, they both talked for a while, finding that they had some things in common and knew around as much about Pokemon. Before they went seperate ways, Viola gave Matt her contact details and got his in return. Maybe one day they would meet again. It would certainly be interesting, since he looked cute to her.
Now at the age of 23, Viola's travels brought her over to the Johto region. She'd spent most of her time traveling and battling, having spent some time in Sinnoh and Hoenn. She'd liked Sinnoh, but Hoenn wasn't to her taste. She wanted to see if Johto would be and if it'd have any interesting Pokemon. Once there, she got word of a tournament being held in Goldenrod City. This interested her and she set out to go there and partake in the tournament, which would most likely give her a chance to really show how competitive she is.

You can edit my sheet in your post to fit with what it looks like now, JdaS.
Just a couple of heads-ups. First off, there's too much text in the list of characters; mine doesn't fully show up. Second, I note the broken accents on the e in Pokémon and suchlike. Might want to look into that.JdaS said:-snip-
Yes, I've been wrestling with it for a while. I'll leave it for now. The RP thread will have ample space for all our sheets. For now all that matters is we know who's playing.CounterAttack said:
One HM/Egg move each? Didn't know, editing now...JdaS said:We're getting quite popular... Put up a sheet. I'll be adding you in order of submission.toobie said:I skimmed through, but I can still join right?
Hoenn again? And a Zangoose owner like me. It's okay but those movesets look a tad off at first glance. Check their movesets so they match their levels. Also you can only have one TM move/egg move on each one at the start.ThatLankyBastard said:Hope I can still join!
Name: Alexandria Hutchison
Appearance: Medium length, curly red hair, brown eyes and just a few too many freckles. Body of a runner and a bit shorter then she'd like to be (around 5'5)
Personality: Prefering to go by Alex (hating when people use her full name), Alex is outgoing and optimistic. Tries to give off good first impressions and takes her first impressions of others seriously. Doesn't think things through as much as she should ad usually ends up running blindly into situations she ought to analyze first
Biography: Growing up outside of Mauville City she knows the joys of the peaceful countryside and the bustling city life. She currently lives by herself in a small house on the outskirts of the City, close enough to walk there and back in a day but still far enough away to retain some privacy. She enjoys running with her Pokemon and can usually be seen training for the next competitive run. She doesn't like to keep her Pokemon in pokeballs (preferring to just walk with them in a big crowd) and only puts them in when absolutely necessary.
Pokemon: *Note all these pokemon are just gonna be based off of actual pokemon I have...
-Shiny Vulpix named Piper, female. Alex's first Pokemon. Level 30 and knows Quick Attack, Will-O-Wisp, Flame Burst, Energy Ball, Swagger, and Attract.
-Zangoose named Psy (pronounced like "Sy", short for "Psycho"),male. Overprotective of Alex. Level 25 and knows Slash, Sword Dance, Pursuit, Aerial Ace, False Swipe, and Poison Jab
-Quilava named Cinders, male. Alex's main running partner. Level 21 and knows Quick Attack, Flame Wheel, Smokescreen, Toxic, Sand-Attack and Roar.
-Scyther named Trixie, female. Alex's newest addition to the team, caught on a trip to Kanto. Level 23 and knows Wing Attack, Agility, Protect, Double Team, X-Scissor, and Cut.
Note: Do the moves out pokemon know have to be ones they'd have an opportunity to learn in game? IE can my Vulpix know Extrasensory even if she isn't a high enough level to have learned that yet?
As I said, you'll get a character from me at some point today.JdaS said:Well, as you may or may not have noticed, CounterAttack and Lambi have left us. Thank you for your time and effort guys. That leaves 2 spots for two new members. I'll probably be making my final picks today.
As for questions concerning when we'll start: sometime this week. I still have some plot issues to figure out and NPCs to create. I'll PM all the participants when we begin.
Growlithe and Cubone sure are popular! I won't penalize you for picking Pokémon you like, though. The sheet looks good. Only minor complaint would be some spelling errors, but that's it.Alternative said:I have just submitted my character in my orgiinal post on the first page. any constructive critisism would be great
