Maskerade 06-04-2017 08:20 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: 27
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
EM/MT Moves: Bounce, Drain Punch, Heal Bell, Iron Defense, Iron Head, Mega Kick, Rock Slide, Softboiled, Swords Dance, Thunderbolt, Volt Tackle, Zen Headbutt
TM/HM Moves: Earthquake, Energy Ball, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Return, Pay Day, 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: 39
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
EM/MT Moves: Barrier, Dark Pulse, Draco Meteor, Ice Beam, Signal Beam, Thunderbolt, Twister
TM/HM Moves: Giga Drain
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: 36
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
EM/MT Moves: Dragon Dance, Dragon Rush
TM/HM Moves: Fire Blast, Focus Blast, Solar Beam, Sunny Day
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: 20
Bond: 50
Ability: Hustle
Nature: Calm
Birthday: September 26
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: The Hatchery
Level-up Moves: Tackle, Dragon Rage, Focus Energy, Bite, Headbutt, Dragon Breath, Roar
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: Berg
Gender: Male
Level: 13
Bond: 15
Ability: Slush Rush
Nature: Lonely
Birthday: August 25
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Cloud Garden Winter Campaign
Level-up Moves: Scratch, Defense Curl, Bide, Powder Snow, Ice Ball, Rapid Spin, Fury Cutter
EM/MT Moves: -
TM/HM Moves: Flash Cannon
Bio: Captured in the midst of a raging battle between the invading Army of Glalie and the Protectors of Cloud Garden, Berg initially attracted Rorik's attention and sparked his curiosiy for his unusual flexibility, being able to curl far more than Alolan variants of Sandshrew were known to be capable of. Little did the Professor know that Berg had developed this capability out of extreme dislike for company - the ice armadillo is a loner, feeling deeply uncomfortable with the presence of others, and having been forcibly taken away from the only creature it admired, Mega Glalie, only served to further worsen Berg's isolation. Any attempts to approach or break through Berg's shell so far have resulted in violent retaliation, but Rorik still hasn't given up on the Sandshrew...

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: 17
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: Bide, Meditate, Confusion, Detect, Endure, Feint, Force Palm
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: 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: 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: 7
Bond: 19
Ability: Magic Guard
Nature: Calm
Birthday:February 12
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with EpicSquirtle
Level-up Moves: Teleport
EM/MT Moves: Barrier, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Skill Swap, Signal Beam, Thunder Punch
TM/HM Moves: Energy Ball, Psychic
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.

Trainer Name: Luc Chevalier de Beaufort
Age: 24
Birthplace: Lumiose City, Kalos Region
Profession: Ace Trainer, Entertainer
Appearance: Luc's hair has two vastly distinct tones - the pitch black of his father's and the light silver, almost white one of his mother's. He is a lean, medium-height young man who dresses sharply at all times, and never foregoes a mask of some sort in public appearances, it having become his signature accessory. Proud of his public image, Luc takes great care to always look as nice as possible, from his custom made outfits to the line-up of PokéBalls in his belt.
History: Luc is the only child of legendary illusionist Jean-Pierre de Beaufort and equally famous Ace Traienr Madeleine Chevalier. Jean-Pierre was one of the most famous and sought-after entertainers in the entire region, earning fortunes with every performance, while Madeleine quickly rose up the ranks of the Pokémon battling scene to achieve legendary status in under two years in Kalos. Reaping the benefits of his parents’ success, Luc led a fairly uneventful and definitely privileged life throughout his infancy and teenage years, despite the rocky relationship he had with his mother.
Madeleine and Jean-Pierre were polar opposites in almost every aspect, including their outlook on life. Luc admired his father, wanting to pursue a similar career when he grew up – even if he never harboured a particular love for performing, he was quick to grasp the appeal of money and how entertainment was by far the easiest route to attain it. However, his mother despised show-business and loathed the “obscene amounts of money wasted” in that industry; she considered most artists guilty of earning way beyond their worth, especially when compared to “hard-working Trainers with real aspirations”. One day, his father passed away after a failed illusionist trick, leaving Luc alone with his mother.
Luc harbours resentment towards Madeleine, who never allowed him to take after his father; as it turned out, Luc was revealed to be every bit a proficient Trainer as his mother, achieving notoriety for both his skill and his flamboyant, elaborate fighting style which he borrowed from his father's performances on stage. Always at odds with Madeleine's stern outlook on life, Luc left home to pursue his own endeavours – eventually becoming Kalos Champion before choosing to start anew in a far away land, with the eyes of an adoring nation firmly placed on their new idol.
He maintains a soft-spoken, easy-smiling demeanour in public, his natural charm overflowing in every interview and media appearance - which coupled with his innate skill make him a fan-favourite wherever he goes. As a result, his self-confidence is unending, often turning excessive, but he has always been able to back it all up and sees no reason to change any time soon.



Nickname: Polaris
Gender: Male
Level: 3
Bond: 23
Ability: Levitate
Nature: Bold
Birthday: December 10
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: The Hatchery
Level-up Moves: Tackle, Charge Beam, Spark, Thunder Wave
EM/MT Moves: Magnet Rise
TM/HM Moves: Acrobatics
Bio: Polaris is every bit as confident in itself as Luc. A Pokémon without weaknesses, as was quickly pointed in its reveal to the public, the Electric-Type was specifically chosen by Luc for this absence of flaws, and Polaris remains well and proudly aware of this. The offspring of two Pokémon belonging to Fizzytopia's Elite Three - Marion's Gastly and Lucas' Tynamo -, Polaris harbours immense power within its tiny frame, often catching foes completely off-guard with its unassuming strength and speed. Much like Luc, Polaris feeds on continued success and recognition, and together they make a formidable duo.


Nickname: Vega
Gender: Female
Level: 20
Bond: 21
Ability: Shed Skin
Nature: Rash
Birthday: May 19
Ball: PokéBall
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Adoption Center
Level-up Moves: Wrap, Swagger, Bite, Lick, Poison Tail, Feint, Screech, Venoshock, Glare
EM/MT Moves: Aqua Tail, Dark Pulse, Dragon Pulse, Earth Power, Flamethrower, Giga Drain, Gunk Shot, Iron Tail, Scary Face
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: Vega is a very dangerous creature, and not just because of its species or its unusually large size; her character is perhaps what makes her the most deadly, a Pokémon prone to violent mood swings and a love for the hunt, whose only true allegiance is to herself. She obeys Luc out of a mutually beneficial agreement, but her loyalty remains doubtful, even if she has yet to turn against her Trainer - as long as he lets her have her share of bloody fun, all is well, and the Seviper is exceedingly good at what she does: striking fear in the hearts of her prey, and backing it up with formidable, unrestrained strength.


Nickname: Betelgeuse
Gender: Male
Level: 20
Bond: 15
Ability: Speed Boost
Nature: Sassy
Birthday: August 17
Ball: Luxury Ball
Hold Item: None
Obtained: Trade with Sandaa
Level-up Moves: Screech, Fury Cutter, Double Team, Screech, Bug Bite, Scratch, Harden, Absorb, Sand Attack, Leech Life, Fury Swipes, Mind Reader, Agility
EM/MT Moves: Endure
TM/HM Moves: -
Bio: Betelgeuse is supremely confident in what he does best. Similarly, he can feel profoundly offended when his greatest talents are brought into question - the worst thing one can do is underestimate his blistering, unparalleled speed. He knows he lacks the raw strength of Pokemon like Polaris or Vega, but the mixture of his agility and highly tactical mind make him a formidable fighter - and he knows it. Betelgeuse's arrogance and self-importance can sometimes be hard to stomach, but are even harder to dispute, and his stratospheric levels of confidence make each of his movements precise and deadly effective. Nervousness and self-doubt are simply not part of Betelgeuse's vocabulary.
