|Post subject:||The Celadon City Trainer Meet|
OOC: Hello and welcome to the CCTM Role Play - this post will contain application info for new players. All you have to do is fill it in and post it in this thread, I'll reply quite quickly to let you know if you've made the grade as I am absolutely enthralled when it comes to Pokémon role play; the sheer volume of creative material presented to a player is magnificent.
Please post the following application in this thread, I'll fill in one for my own character as an example for anyone who needs help or ideas.
You don't necessarily have to be a Pokémon trainer - you could be a janitor or a fireman or a diving instructor or an electrician; whatever you want to do is fine by me.
Describe your character physically, how they look and what they wear.
Pokémon on-hand (if any):
Give the species, nick name (again, if any) and gender of the Pokémon your character is carrying as they begin the role play (you may choose to have your character win, catch or trade for a new Pokémon at any time). Those who are starting a brand new character and require a starter Pokémon should go directly to the south-western corner of the City Square, and enter the large tent, to obtain a Pokémon from Professors Oak and Elm (both played by myself). There are ten Pokémon to be had at this time (these Pokémon may go quickly, and there is only one of each), which will be listed at the bottom of this post.
What's your character like? Cheerful, witty, sarcastic, brooding, good, bad, nice, naive, brave, arrogant, moronic - you know the drill.
Where was your character born? What lead them here? What have they done up until now?
Reasons for attending the meet:
Everyone has an agenda. Be it to take in the scenery, meet new people, meet a travelling partner, catch/trade/win new Pokémon or to take part in and hopefully Champion the battle tournament; everyone has a reason to be there. Or maybe you just live in Celadon City and you don't have a choice in being there. All up to you.
Here are the ten Pokémon available for new trainers at the Starter Tent in the city square with gender and availability information (I'll add Pokémon to the list every once in a while, depending on how well this RP does):
1. Bulbasaur, Male, Non-Shiny - Available
2. Chikorita, Female, Non-Shiny - Available
3. Charmander, Male, Non-Shiny - Available
4. Cyndaquil, Male, Non-Shiny - Available

8. Buneary, Female, Non-Shiny - Available
9. Shinx, Male, Non-Shiny - Taken by Anson Hook (Metavoir)
10.Snover, Male, Non-Shiny - Available
Newly added starter Pokémon! - 21st July 2007

9. Pichu Egg, Unknown, Unknown - Available
10. Togepi Egg, Unknown, Unknown - Given to Kiki (Kawaii Angel)
And now, here's an example application for anyone who needs help to take some ideas from (although yours does not have to be anywhere near as long as mine inevitably will be...)
Character Name: Elliot Demakes
Occupation: Roaming Pokémon Trainer
Medium height, average build with messy blonde hair. He wears a black jacker over a long-sleeved t-shirt, which is usually light green with darker green stripes; although he does change it from time to time. He also wears blue jeans and white Converse hi-top sneakers.
Pokémon on-hand (if any):
Elliot's first Pokémon, and his best friend. Though occasionally suspicious of other humans intentions towards his trainer, Sceptile is generally accepting and friendly towards most humans and other Pokémon. He and Elliot often make fun of each other, though they are both only having fun and are well aware of the love they feel towards each other. Having been together through some traumatic and dangerous times the bond Elliot and Sceptile share is unbreakable, and they would give their lives for each other. Sceptile is protective of Elliot, and is a powerful battler. Using his signature Leaf Blade attack to perfection. When there's no type disadvantage, it's Leaf Blade is so powerful, it can often end a battle without having to use any of it's other moves: Quick Attack, Slash, Cut, Solarbeam, Return and Earthquake. It is rumoured around Littleroot Town that - due to it's extreme power - Elliot will only have his Sceptile use Solarbeam under extreme circumstances.
The first Pokémon Elliot caught on his own after leaving Littleroot town. While still a Zubat, he would rarely leave his trainer's side. Even in daylight, which Zubat notoriously dislike. This bond caused him to evolve quickly from Golbat to Crobat. This quick evolution and unconditional love of his trainer made Crobat a permanent member of Elliot's team. Crobat knows the following moves: Poison Fang, Arial Ace, Fly, Shadow Ball, Return, Toxic, Crunch, Confuse Ray, Fire Fang and Thunder Fang.
Crobat is very loyal, and acts as a bodyguard when out of his pokéball; flying along next to his trainer or scouting ahead. When Elliot is on the road, Crobat - being nocturnal - stands guard while he sleeps.
Raised from an egg given to him by the daycare of the Sevii Islands, this Pokémon is one of the most vigorously trained Pokémon Elliot owns. Training for a full 18 months on mainland Kanto and the Sevii Islands before evolving into a Snorlax. Now the main physical powerhouse of Elliot's team. His enourmous appetite is the main reason for Elliot going to the Celadon Meet. Snorlax prefers to walk alongside his trainer, which is considered odd for the stereotypically lazy species. Although he does have his lazy moments, this Snorlax is particularly energetic. He has the following moves: Mega Punch, Surf, Return, Earthquake, Body Slam, Rest, Fire Punch, Hyper Beam, Strength, Snore and Yawn, Take Down, Ice Punch, Seismic Toss and Headbutt.
The latest addition to Elliot's team, Chimchar is a curious and cheerful young Pokémon since his capture. Before that, he belonged to an arrogant and abusive trainer named Andrew Cobalt; a young man from Twinleaf Town in Sinnoh. Elliot met Cobalt after his failed Pokémon League Challenge while he was vacationing in Slateport City. Elliot had just deposited Wailord, Torkoal, Magneton and Flygon in the storage system and was leaving for Kanto to train Sceptile and Crobat as well as see the world and capture a new team of Pokémon to mount another challenge on the Hoenn league and had began to head towards Slateport Beach when he saw Cobalt beating his Chimchar for losing a trainer battle with a young Tuber and his Azurill. Elliot quickly intervened, and protected the Pokémon from Cobalt's attack. Enraged, Andrew attacked Elliot, and the two engaged in a fist fight on the beach. After Elliot overcame the boy and sent him on his way, he found the Chimchar had decided to stay with him, though it was weakened by the beatins and lack of care it had received, and was not fit to be on the road with Elliot. Professor Birch volunteered to nurse the young Pokémon back to health and has just returned him to Elliot's party as he left the Sevii Islands to travel to Celadon City for the Meet.
He has the following moves: Scratch, Leer, Ember, Taunt and Fury Swipes.
With an infectious thirst for Pokémon knowledge, and a friendly and easy going attitude, Elliot is likeable and his enthusiasm for the world and exploration can be contagious. He loves to meet new trainers and their Pokémon, as he enjoys seeing the bonds they share. He has his dark side, and can be caught brooding on occasion. He shares an unbreakable bond with his on-hand Pokémon Sceptile, his starter, and his beloved Crobat; the first Pokémon he caught after leaving home. As well as his Snorlax, which he raised from an egg. Their loyalty to him is as ferocious as his love of knowledge and adventure. Elliot Demakes also has one strange trait. A trait Pokémon Professors have begun calling "Natural Affinity." Elliot's natural affinity was towards Pokémon of the grass type; they often obeyed and trusted him without question, and he is able to soothe and befriend any grass type. He has also displayed this ability (although to a much lesser extent) with bug type Pokémon.
Born and raised in Littleroot Town, in the Hoenn region, Elliot was a child prodigy - excelling in school, quickly becoming interested in biology - as well as having a special interest in Grass and Bug type Pokémon. He left his hometown and childhood behind at the age of 14, older than most beginning trainers, as he had opted to stay at home with his mother, in order to help her nurse her sick Bayleef back to health. Taking the Treecko awarded to him by Professor Birch for saving him from a Mightyena and it's Poochyena pups and taking the Hoenn Pokémon League challenge. He quickly rose up the ranks, earning all eight badges with his most trusted Pokémon - Sceptile, Crobat, Magneton, Wailord, Torkoal and Flygon. After a crushing defeat at the hands of the Dragon trainer, Drake, Elliot put his League ambitions on hold in order to travel more and train his Pokémon. Leaving most of his Pokémon in Littleroot with his mother and Professor Birch, Elliot took Sceptile and Crobat, departing for the Kanto region. While exploring the Sevii Isles, he was given a Pokémon Egg by the daycare lady of the islands. After careful raising, the egg hatched into a Munchlax - which Elliot trained vigorously for over a year, taking him around Kanto and Johto. Having now been a Snorlax for six months, his appetite was beginning to take it's toll on Elliot's wallet. Having heard of the Celadon Meet from the locals of Lavender Town, Elliot, now 18 years old, made his way to the city to earn some cash. He was never expected to get as far as he has, assumed to fail before his third badge and return home to his mother and her Bayleef, whom he had a strange attachment to. He recently got his Chimchar back, and he has now became a regular part of his team.
Reasons for attending the meet:
To enter the tournament and earn some cash to feed his Snorlax, as well as visiting Celadon Gym to discuss his natural affinity to the grass type and train his Chimchar up to battling strength. He also hopes to meet a few friends with which to travel.
I hope that helped anyone who was struggling.

I'll give it a shot.
Character Name: Kiki
Occupation: Pokemon assistant. She has helped Birch with many things many times, and all pokemon seem to bond with her well.
A small but very atheletic girl who has pink hair and blue eyes, where's a hooded white and pink striped shirt, and brown boy khakis. ((Minus the ears, look at avatar for head. <----))
Chikorita, Female. Nickname: Candy
Personality: Sweet and appears fragile. However, is strong and atheletic, and has a short temper. Calm and collected most of the time. Is nice to most people. Independent. Gets angry or upset if people make fun of her or when they mention her parents.
History: She doesn't say much of her past unless she wants to. However, she is a friend of Professor Birch's, who has taken care of her since an accident, where her parents became missing. She copes well, however, knowing that her parents wouldn't want her upset. She is VERY independent.
Also, she has a special bond with pokemon, similar to Elliot's. However, it causes any pokemon to quickly bond with her, and she can also understand what they say.
Reasons for attending the meet:
Traveled with Birch. He gave her Chikorita as her eighth birthday present. She has been training it for a while, and they are very close.
((Is that okay? I'll start, too.))
I was in the back of Birch's tent, playing around with Candy. We giggled, and she ran outside, wanting to play around. I laughed and ran after her, easily keeping up. I was only watching her, and not the road, which was bad because Candy was looking back at me.
She ran away when I almost got her, and as we passed the gym, Erika waved us by. I waved back. Birch had me befriend her, and she taught me good tactics for grass pokemon. Candy then ran in between the legs of a Slorlax, me not that far behind her. She then ran through the trainer's legs, and ran along the outside rim, over and over, waiting for me to catch my breath as I kneeled behind the Snorlax. I didn't like it when other trainers see and talk to me, since they always wanted to battle, not spend quality time with their pokemon. I definitely didn't want this confident trainer to see me, and I didn't want to battle him. Besides, I didn't want to battle until singles and doubles matches competition.

Due to vigorus training, Empoleon's been doing better than ever, though having a mild desiese interfeiring with health. she was given to Tom as his starter poke.

((You may think I'm Mary-Sueing with my Empoleon but PLEASE! I'll make it as weak as possible.))
|Author:||Kawaii Angel [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 1:06 pm ]|
((Hullo again, Tom. Maybe your Empoleon has a condition whearas it can't fight well, or takes damage twice as bad?
Really though...Can a 10 year old be smart enough as a professor? I'd think that they'd be at least 15 and be super smart....))
|Author:||Treeckomaster [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 1:27 pm ]|
(( My name in real life is not Tom, just to tell you. But sure, I'll change it.))
|Author:||Kawaii Angel [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 1:32 pm ]|
((Okay...but Tom is your name for both rps...besides, I'm Kiki in all except for being Hiroki...Elsewhere, off the rps, I'm called Kiki or Megan. Shall you start yours, just for when it gets locked and then unlocked? An early start is good, or are we not aloud to do that?))))

((Alright.....I think that everyone should have a starter pokemon, right? Because, I'd have to increase my Candy's level a bit if you guys have tougher pokemon. See, Kipper has Chimchar, but also stronger pokemon. However, his Chimchar is a beginner. Maybe...maybe we should use strong pokemon, and I could just increase my Candy's level. Kipper? Well, you have to accept us, first...))
|Author:||Whitewash [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 3:05 pm ]|
How bout you can have stronger pokemon but are required to grab a starter for the beginning of the RP.
Oh yeah, I guess I'll have a go at this.
Appearance: Medium height with glasses but has a decent body build. Wears a grey hoodie with a plain darker grey baseball cap and has baggy khakis with worn messed up tennis shoes.
Pokémon on-hand (if any):
Buneary (female) (I chose the available starter), Lapras (female), Feebas (female), Wartortle (male), Octillery (male)
Lapras: The favored pokemon of the bunch for use in contests. Is abnormally large and exhibits vigor of the upmost quality. Is sweet and understanding and preferably hates to battle other pokemon but will do what she must if needed.
Feebas: The old newcomer before Buneary. Happens to be shiny but is shy about her different appearance and is very ashamed of herself for not being more friendly. However, by looking at her she seems to be as mindless as a Magikarp.
Wartortle: Narcisistic, egotistical, hot-dogging SOB (son-of-a-Blastoise). Will not obey completely and craves positive attention. Domenic hasn't broken him in yet. Has tremendous battle experience and is very good at what it wants to do, which doesn't help work on its modesty unfortunately.
Octillery: Boring most of the time but is actually quite intelligent and very strong with all its tentacle muscles. Its psychic awareness sometimes shows in its predictions, however its predictions are not always as correct as it thinks they are. Has much battle experience.
Personality: Favors water pokemon too much. Is unorthodox and sarcastic (I love being sarcastic). Not as successful as he wishes to be.
History: Studied under past water gymn trainers as well as a born sailor of sorts. Born in Vermillion city where he began intensely training Lapras to be more resistant to electricity (Lapras was his first pokemon). Began traveling the world at age 11 and hasn't given it up yet.
Reasons for attending the meet: To test his skills and learn from others as well before he continues his journey to another city.

((This isn't going to be locked, since he was accepted. Read the applications.))
Your lucky dude! A newbie here and you get it accepted! I am DEFINITELY joining!
Character Name: Joshua
Occupation: Intermediate Trainer, Cook
Pokémon on-hand (if any):
Personality: A young man that is very helpful. When he is battling in double battles with other people, he makes sure to have a good strategy ready.
History: Born in Sinnoh, Joshua was always wanting to be a Trainer. He finally became one when he was 14, since his mother and father wanted him to wait a while. He has traveled all through Sinnoh, and got 4 of the badges there. He decided to hold off his fights there, and leave for Kanto and get some more Pokèmon friends.
Reasons for attending the meet: He heard of this on while riding his cruise ship to Kanto. He decided to see what it was like, and see if he could help anyone there.
|Author:||Kawaii Angel [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 5:57 pm ]|
((Dear Gosh, I know you too!! ))
|Author:||Tragar [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 6:16 pm ]|
(((Err, yea...Anyway, do you want me to make you a character? I'll do that...)))
Joshua walked around. He saw trainers everywhere. To his left, to his right, in front of him, behind him. Everywhere he was he saw trainers.
'Maybe I should battle someone..." Thought Joshua. He looked around and saw a girl, a boy, a Snorlax, and a Chikorita.
"Hey, you two." He said walking up to them all.
"Want to do a quick double battle to see who is better?" Asked Joshua.
(((And also, to your question about the stronger and weaker trainer, you can choose if you want to be strong or weak, as long as it isn't a Mary-Sue. What's a Mary-Sue? It's a perfect character. If you choose to be new, you get to get one of them there. If not, then choose your own....That help any?)))
|Author:||TyphlosionXplosion [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 6:21 pm ]|
(I do have to switch up my pokemon line-up, so Im gonna change that in my profile)
Fred stepped off the boarding ramp of the S.S. anne and into the bustling street of Vermillion city.
"OH YEAH" his father Eathan, cried "Finally made it to Kanto. What do you think, shorty" he asked touseling Fred's hair
"DONT CALL ME THAT!" Fred yelled ignoring the stares "right now dad, pokemon battle, Ill show you a thing or two" Fred's pokemon Shedinja glared at Eathan and made a buzzing noise
"oh you boys calm down" Fred's mother Janice, said stepping between the fueding father and son "there will be plenty of time to battle in Celadon city, but if we dont hurry we will miss the meet"
"Right mom" Fred said shouldering his pack and following his parents down the road that would bring them to Saffron city and then to Celadon.
|Author:||Whitewash [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 6:26 pm ]|
(does that mean I have to choose between my Buneary and Lapras? DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE! )
|Author:||Tragar [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 6:33 pm ]|
(((If you are new, like just starting out, then yes. If you are kind of new but already have pokemon, not really new, or an expert in your description, then no...See, I chose Gligar and Frolass since I'm not new. Gligar is what I started with before I came to this place, so yea...Can we start the story now?)))
|Author:||Whitewash [ Thu Jul 19, 2007 6:48 pm ]|
(sure, I'll ditch the Buneary.)
Domenic walked briskly into the fountain courtyard and was dazzled at the fountain he saw. He sat on its edge and felt the water with his fingers. Today is going to be a great day. He splashed the water slightly, then took out a pokeball and let Feebas into the water. It was ecstatic at being in the gorgeous fountain.
