Maskerade 06-04-2017 07:20 PM


Trainer Name: Rorik Pine Holstadt
Age: 28
Birthplace: Edda City, Heiml Region
Profession: Pokémon Professor
Appearance: A lean, average-height man who's always lacked physical prowess. While his hair is dark-red like his father's, he inherited his mother's green eyes and sub-par eyesight to go along - as a result, he never takes off his glasses. He proudly wears his lab coat in his travels, unafraid to show his true calling in a world of Trainers and Coordinators.
History: Rorik was born in Heiml, and spent the majority of his life in the great commercial metropolis of the region, Edda City. He is the younger brother of Erik and the son of legendary Trainer Ulrik "Dragonheart" Holstadt, with whom he cut all ties many years prior for reasons he insists on keeping to himself - in fact, the Pine surname he always uses was actually inherited from his late mother.
From a young age, Rorik revealed tremendous aptitude for studying and exceptional critical thinking; quickly drawn to the mysteries of the Pokémon World that were yet undecipherable, he found no target more appealing than the elusive Bond Phenomenon. Contrary to his much more athletic, battle-inclined brother, Rorik opted to become a Pokémon Professor, specializing in the mysterious power of bonds between humans and Pokémon who can drive the latter to perform miraculous feats. His dedication to his work earned him the respect and recognition of the entire region, including that of the "Norse God" Gottfried Haraldson, the regional Champion for over three decades.
Yet, despite his preference for silence and isolation - the only way to get any proper work done! - Rorik eventually came to understand the limitations of seclusion; if he wanted to take his research further, attests his theories for himself and witness the strength of these bonds with his own eyes, the Professor ultimately decided to leave his Lab and even his home region to further pursue his studies abroad.
Completely inept at battle and at forming bonds himself, Rorik now travels the foreign land of Fizzytopia alongside partners he is yet to even understand, let alone connect with...



Nickname: Guntz
Gender: Male
Level: 35
Bond: 50
Ability: Thick Fat
Nature: Mild
Birthday: November 24
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Starter
Level-up Moves: Last Resort, Recycle, Lick, Metronome, Odor Sleuth, Tackle, Defense Curl, Amnesia, Chip Away, Screech, Body Slam, Yawn, Headbutt, Belly Drum, Rest, Snore, Sleep Talk, Giga Impact
EM/MT Moves: Bounce, Drain Punch, Heal Bell, Iron Defense, Iron Head, Mega Kick, Rock Slide, Softboiled, Superpower, Swords Dance, Thunderbolt, Volt Tackle, Zen Headbutt
TM/HM Moves: Earthquake, Energy Ball, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Pay Day, Return, Rock Tomb, Snatch
Bio: Rorik's very first Pokémon, a gift from Champion Gottfried. Initially perpetually hungry and oblivious to pretty much everything around him, he displayed little interest in his Trainer and often acts of his own accord, especially if there was food to be retrieved nearby. But after several adventures by Rorik's side, Guntz eventually learned to respect the man for who he was, and their Bond became stronger than Rorik could ever have expected. Now, motivated by the Professor's own resilience and humility, Guntz strives to make his Trainer proud, even if it means forgoing the food and sleep he loves so much. Now, he is truly dependable, and capable of unleashing his full potential at Rorik's command - the strength of their connection, as well as the previous training Guntz received from the legendary Gottfried, make him a truly formidable combatant.


Nickname: Stahl
Gender: Genderless
Level: 47
Bond: 50
Ability: Analytic
Nature: Quiet
Birthday: January 31
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Adoption Center
Level-up Moves: Hydro Pump, Spotlight, Swift, Confuse Ray, Tackle, Harden, Water Gun, Rapid Spin, Recover, Psywave, Swift, Bubble Beam, Camouflage, Gyro Ball, Brine, Light Screen, Minimize, Reflect Type, Power Gem, Psychic, Cosmic Power
EM/MT Moves: Barrier, Dark Pulse, Draco Meteor, Ice Beam, Signal Beam, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Twister
TM/HM Moves: Dazzling Gleam, Giga Drain, Tri Attack
Bio: Stahl was actually adopted by mistake, and initially proved to be an immense challenge for the socially-clueless Rorik. It doesn't speak, exhibits no signs of biological needs and cannot convey any emotions via facial expressions or body language. However, their many journeys alongside one another have allowed Rorik to see Stahl for what it truly is: intensely curious about the world around it, unfailingly loyal and even affectionate despite its perpetual silence. It has a sharp, analytic mind that allows it to quickly decipher mysteries as well as strategically approach many challenging situations, including combat, with the ideal amount of strength and energy expenditure.


Nickname: Volg
Gender: Male
Level: 41
Bond: 35
Ability: Blaze
Nature: Rash
Birthday: October 3
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: The Hatchery
Level-up Moves: Flare Blitz, Heat Wave, Dragon Claw, Shadow Claw, Air Slash, Wing Attack, Scratch, Growl, Ember, Metal Claw, Smokescreen, Dragon Rage, Scary Face, Fire Fang, Slash, Flame Burst, Flamethrower, Slash
EM/MT Moves: Dragon Dance, Dragon Rush
TM/HM Moves: Acrobatics, Brick Break, Fire Blast, Fly, Focus Blast, Solar Beam, Steel Wing, Sunny Day
CM Moves: Crossfire
Bio: Volg is afflicted by a mysterious curse known as the Baimon, a condition that sends the young drake into a berserker rage whenever the slightest hint of conflict appears. Although he tries his very hardest to repress it, Volg cannot control his urges and often comes across and extremely dangerous and uncontrollable, scaring both Rorik and the other Pokémon in the team. As it turns out, in his rare moments of inner peace, Volg is actually a very mild and affectionate creature, but finds himself ever more ostracized due to these deadly impulses...


Nickname: Zyll
Gender: Male
Level: 63
Bond: 50
Ability: Hustle
Nature: Calm
Birthday: September 26
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: The Hatchery
Level-up Moves: Double Hit, Tackle, Dragon Rage, Focus Energy, Bite, Headbutt, Dragon Breath, Roar, Crunch, Slam, Dragon Pulse, Work Up, Dragon Rush, Body Slam, Scary Face
EM/MT Moves: Dark Pulse, Earth Power, Flamethrower, Shadow Blast, Shock Wave
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: Zyll was rescued by Rorik as an Egg from the rage of Volg, who sensed the immense latent power of the dragon even before birth and was overwhelmed by his own curse. Despite not initially planning to keep Zyll, Rorik was impressed by the rarity of his color and, most of all, touched by his surprisingly calm, almost gentle demeanour, so uncharacteristic of his species. Against his better judgement, the Professor took the dragon in, and continuously tries to stop Volg from picking fights with the peaceful Deino. To this day, Rorik can't quite understand why Zyll is the way he is - silent, tranquil, contemplative - but he still harbours a latent fear of what might happen once the drake evolves and the full extent of his power is released... will everything be alright, or does ruin await once Zyll awakens?


Nickname: Leif
Gender: Male
Level: 4
Bond: 2
Ability: Long Reach
Nature: Lonely
Birthday: March 10
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with Gary
Level-up Moves: Tackle, Leafage, Growl
EM/MT Moves: Confuse Ray
TM/HM Moves: Steel Wing
Bio: Leif was named in memory of Rorik's former Lab assistant, who passed away in a nuclear raid during the war between Heiml and Saigo. Leif Otisson was the owl's first owner, but released it just in time to avoid disaster, and sent it to meet Rorik and join him so it could escape his fate. However, the catastrophic event left Leif traumatized, and the Grass-Type became a loner, unable to trust humans after what they did to its original Trainer. He keeps to himself at all times, and often cries in silence, mourning his loss. As a result, Rorik finds it extremely difficult to bond with the Rowlet, who is also reminded of his friend's passing every time he looks at Leif...


Nickname: Keb
Gender: Male
Level: 11
Bond: 10
Ability: Prankster
Nature: Serious
Birthday: July 30
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Caught in Le Marécage Noir
Level-up Moves: Foresight, Quick Attack, Endure, Counter, Feint, Force Palm
EM/MT Moves: -
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: First belonging to a powerful Knight from the Black Bayou, Sir Bryant, Keb was verbally abused and sold short time and time again by his master. It wasn't until he met Rorik, a kindred spirit who valued peace above conflict, that the Riolu learned the true meaning of bonds between human and Pokemon. Brought together by chance, and sent on an adventure to purge the evil aura infesting the Bayou's residents, the two got closer as they went along, eventually forging an unbreakable connection that even Sir Bryant could not ignore. As a result, Rorik was allowed to keep Keb as his partner, and the two complement one another perfectly - after all, there is no bond more fascinating for Rorik to study than the ultimate power of Aura.

Trainer Name: Sai Hajimoto
Age: 28
Birthplace: Tatakami Village, Saigo Region
Profession: Monk
Appearance: Athletic but not overly muscular, and near-bald as local tradition expects of Saigo's monks, Sai dresses as all Tatakami-natives do: with the traditional robes of the Tower, whose colours change as the student reaches certain achievements. At the moment, he wears the basic black-and-red pattern of the apprentice, despite being recognized as skilled enough to leave Tatakami Tower and keep honing his craft in the vast outdoors.
History: Sai was raised in a stern family, his principles deeply rooted in tradition and the old customs. To him, battle is a sacred art, the ultimate display of ability and mirror of the bonds forged between Man and Pokémon. Such were the values imparted upon him by his late father Samanosuke, the last Sage of Tatakami Tower. He now journeys across the world in search of the strength needed to surpass the current Champion of Saigo, whom he deems unworthy of the title for reasons known only to him.



Nickname: Jin
Gender: Male
Level: 37
Bond: 20
Ability: Pure Power
Nature: Adamant
Birthday: September 18
Ball: Luxury Ball, but always kept outside
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with Brave Saix
Level-up Moves: Zen Headbutt, Fire, Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, Bide, Meditate, Confusion, Detect, Endure, Feint, Force Palm, Hidden Power (Dark), Calm Mind, Mind Reader, High Jump Kick, Psych Up, Acupressure, Power Trick
EM/MT Moves: Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: Jin was the Pokémon that Sai received upon being accepted into Tatakami Tower after a grueling set of tests - made especially difficult just for him by his father, who was back then the Tower's Sage. Jin shares Sai's vision of battle as the greatest expression of trust and an art above all others, and is always solemn and respectful when it comes to fighting - even if his opponent is not. In a way, Jin is still Sai's pupil, the latter having mastered hidden techniques through years of practice that he now seeks to impart upon his closest companion.


Nickname: Shiou
Gender: Male
Level: 31
Bond: 45
Ability: Cursed Body
Nature: Quirky
Birthday:October 31
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with Marion Ette
Level-up Moves: Shadow Punch, Hypnosis, Lick, Spite, Mean Look, Curse, Night Shade, Confuse Ray, Sucker Punch, Payback, Shadow Ball, Dream Eater
EM/MT Moves: Fire Punch, Giga Drain, Ice Punch, Shadow Storm, Snatch, Thunderbolt, Thunder Punch, Thunder Wave, Uproar
TM/HM Moves: Icy Wind, Psychic, Sludge Bomb, Teleport, Thief
Bio: Shiou was born a long time ago, hatched from an egg by the Queen of Souls and current member of Fizzytopia's Elite Three, Marion Ette. After years under her care, he was gifted to Professor Rorik Pine to aid the foreigner in his research, but the man proved inept at both bonding with it or earning its respect. After a short while, when Rorik was saved by a passing Sai Hajimoto, Shiou became impressed by the monk's power - essentially the antithesis of the incompetenet human he'd been stuck with - and the ghost quickly followed the Saigonese man, defecting from Rorik's team to join Sai's ranks.


Nickname: Kyuki
Gender: Male
Level: 3
Bond: 22
Ability: Snow Warning
Nature: Quiet
Birthday: July 15
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Springtime Event Alolan Egg Hunt
Level-up Moves: Dazzling Gleam, Imprison, Ice Beam, Ice Shard, Nasty Plot, Confuse Ray, Safeguard, Powder Snow
EM/MT Moves: Moonblast
TM/HM Moves: Aurora Veil, Focus Blast
Bio: Kyuki was initially intended to have been hatched by Rorik Pine in his journey across Springtide Isle, but the Professor was attacked by a very eager Wolfgang Lauther - an escaped political prisoner from the region of Heiml - once the Egg was unearthed. As a result, Lauther was the one to have the Egg hatch, but with international authorities closing in on his location, the runaway criminal was forced to leave Fizzytopia and all traces of his activity in the region behind - including Kyuki. Eventually, the ice fox crossed paths with Sai and Jin and, entranced by the strength of their bond, requested to join the monk's team. Kyuki is mild and extremely calm in all circumstances, contemplative in nature and wise beyond his years, preferring to avoid physical confrontation whenever possible and striking from a distance when battle is unavoidable.


Nickname: Kami
Gender: Male
Level: 20
Bond: 19
Ability: Magic Guard
Nature: Calm
Birthday:February 12
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with EpicSquirtle
Level-up Moves: Teleport, Kinesis, Confusion, Disable
EM/MT Moves: Barrier, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Skill Swap, Signal Beam, Thunder Punch, Thunder Wave
TM/HM Moves: Energy Ball, Psychic, Tri Attack
Bio: Kami is a creature spoke of in legend, known to all in Saigo as a being whose never-ending rebirths are heralded by the appearance of mountains in the landscape - such is the intensity of its mental power. Still in an incomplete form, Kami was sought out by Sai who wished to train under him, only for the Psychic-Type to join his team in hopes that the human's passion and dedication could help break his own bonds of weakness. Extremely perceptive but preferring not to involve himself directly in the affairs of humans, Kami rarely intercedes on Sai's behalf, but is a source of unending wisdom that the monk can always turn to for advice.


Nickname: Ryuga
Gender: Male
Level: 20
Bond: 0
Ability: Sheer Force
Nature: Jolly
Birthday: December 6
Ball: Cherish Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: The Hatchery
Level-up Moves: Scratch, Leer, Water Gun, Rage, Bite, Scary Face, Ice Fang
EM/MT Moves: Dragon Claw, Dragon Dance, Metal Claw
TM/HM Moves: Blizzard
Bio: Ryuga was the last Pokemon of Sage Samanosuke Hajimoto, Sai's father. He received training from the White Lion for a short time, before the Sage passed away due to illness. Since then, the other monks of Tatakami Tower had kept Ryuga inside it Ball until the day Sai returned to claim his father's mantle. The Water-Type is uncharacteristically cheerful and impetuous for a Pokemon raised in the Tower, his spirit unbreakable and his fighting spirit indomitable. Ryuga's easygoing attitude offsets Sai's more serious personality, complementing one another perfectly; he, better than anyone, reminds the monk that battling is more than a sacred art - it is fundamentally fun, something Sai forgets all too often...


Nickname: Okuma
Gender: Female
Level: 1
Bond: 0
Ability: Fluffy
Nature: Hasty
Birthday: April 16
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Adoption Centre
Level-up Moves: Tackle, Leer
EM/MT Moves: -
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: Okuma is, at the same time, extremely affectionate towards Sai and extremely aggressive towards anyone else. The bear suffered from abandonment issues until Sai picked her up from the Adoption Centre, for which she is forever grateful - it is the only reason why her belligerent nature does not manifest towards Sai, instead being channeled into an overzealous protective instinct that borders on jealousy even towards her other teammates. And such a temperament is extremely dangerous in a Pokemon with such prodigious physical strength...

Maskerade 06-26-2017 02:44 PM


Trainer Name: "Hush"
Age: ??
Birthplace: ??
Profession: ??
Appearance: Hush is a young man with dark-red short hair, piercing green eyes and usually carries an overly serious expression despite his fair complexion. He dresses in military uniform, the garments he received during his time serving in the army. Although he has left that life behind, he likes to remind himself and others where his allegiances used to lie, to let everyone know just how easily things can change.
History: A rogue, dangerously unpredictable Trainer roaming Fizzytopia in search of a cure for the perpetual boredom that haunts him. His past is filled with the darkness of horrible deeds, but much like he refuses to share his real name, he is equally not fond of people asking about his history...



Nickname: Abaddon
Gender: Male
Level: 1
Bond: 0
Ability: Pressure
Nature: Rash
Birthday: November 12
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with myahoo
Level-up Moves: Iron Head, Ice Fang, Fire Fang, Thunder Fang, Supersonic, Wing Attack, Bite, Scary Face, Agility
EM/MT Moves: Aqua Tail, Dragon Pulse, Earth Power, Flamethrower
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: Abaddon was the only Pokemon Hush brought with him from his time in the Heimlan Army, revived from a Fossil found during a mission in the region of Asbel. Vicious, extremely violent and with a voracious appetite, Hush seems to be the only person who can control the prehistoric dragon. It's as if the notion of supremacy that his species enjoyed in ancient times has also been genetically preserved, making Abaddon constantly strive to guarantee that superiority through repeated confrontations... Nothing upsets him more than the idea of another Pokemon surpassing him in strength and dominance.


Nickname: Pahaliah
Gender: Genderless
Level: 1
Bond: 50
Ability: Iron Fist
Nature: Adamant
Birthday: October 27
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Adoption Center
Level-up Moves: Pound, Astonish, Defense Curl
EM/MT Moves: Earth Power
TM/HM Moves: Ice Punch
CM Moves: Guardian Terrain
Bio: Pahaliah is a robotic entity who, unlike Dominion, strangely displays a powerful sense of curiosity about all things that surround it - as if reality itself is an open book with infinite amounts of knowledge waiting to be consumed. Pahaliah displays a sense of self that intrigues and amuses Hush, an independence uncharacteristic of the species itself. Far from a mere automated slave, Pahaliah's potential is immense, due to its constant pursuit of new discoveries to complement its fantastic strength - it is essentially a self-improving AI attached to a tremendously destructive body.


Nickname: Helel
Gender: Female
Level: 20
Bond: 0
Ability: Super Luck
Nature: Calm
Birthday: October 30
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: The Hatchery
Level-up Moves: Perish Song, Future Sight, Me First, Razor Wind, Detect, Scratch, Feint, Leer, Quick Attack, Taunt, Pursuit, Bite, Double Team
EM/MT Moves: -
TM/HM Moves: Ice Beam
Bio: A wise, contemplative beast whose relationship with Hush is very complex. The human fascinates her, the inner workings of his mind and his wildly unpredictable, but never inconsequential decisions; at the same time, she resents the extremes he will go to, and cannot condone the darker actions he has so far committed. Helel obeys, because she feels compelled to, if only to see what Hush will accomplish next, but with each act of obedience comes a sense of dread that is, more often than not, justified. Though she still tries, on occasion, to dissuade her Trainer, she knows it's a fruitless endeavour. To her, Hush is like a drug she can't quite let go of...


Nickname: Metatron
Gender: Genderless
Level: 24
Bond: 0
Ability: Clear Body
Nature: Quiet
Birthday: February 11
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with EpicSquirtle
Level-up Moves: Take Down, Metal Claw, Confusion, Magnet Rise, Pursuit, Scary Face
EM/MT Moves: Body Slam
TM/HM Moves: Sludge Bomb
Bio: Metatron is, in Hush's own words, "the hard reset". The strongest Pokemon on the team, both physically and mentally, the mechanical being is more than capable of maintaining a telepathic conversation with any human in any language, but has never done so to date. Not even Hush can tell what the automaton's brains are processing at any given time, as it is completely unreadable and seemingly detached from human affairs, but on the rare occasion that it is called upon to solve a problem, the problem is terminated.


Nickname: Dumah
Gender: Female
Level: 42
Bond: 0
Ability: Moody
Nature: Quirky
Birthday: December 28
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with Rotom310
Level-up Moves: Freeze-Dry, Sheer Cold, Powder Snow, Leer, Double Team, Ice Shard, Bite, Icy Wind, Headbutt, Protect, Ice Fang, Frost Breath, Crunch, Ice Beam, Hail
EM/MT Moves: -
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: To say that Dumah is psychotic is an understatement. The pleasure she derives from toying with her prey is scary - and everything to her is a prey. To Dumah, there are no concepts of "opponent" or "battle", only "entertainment". Enamored with her own ice creations, she takes her time to freeze and sculpt her targets to excruciating detail, then devour them once the work of art starts to bore her. In a way, she is much like Hush, in that she becomes all the more dangerous the more bored she feels. Fortunately, Hush provides her with exciting prey often enough to keep the devil entertained...
