    Default Pokemon Fear Factor Redux

    - Hiya guys! My name is Squidley and I have just the greatest idea! I have decided to look into the world of Pokemon and see what fears YOU have and set you on the path to conquer those fears! This will be the second variation of this show and I hope you have a great time!
    -------------------------
    Application:

    Unlike Pokemon Big Brother, Pokemon Fear Factor requires more information than a name and a personality; here is a sample of what it should look like.
    ---------------------
    Name: (What do you want to be called) Squidley
    Gender: (Simple) F
    Personality: (How do you act?/Other character traits) Squidley is eccentric and just full of happiness. She is a wizard at building things and has a knack for technology. Her happy go lucky nature will help her be a great host and her building skills will allow her to be able to build some great fearful challenges.
    Fears: (What are you afraid of?) The Dark, Faulty equipment and climbing
    Other: (What else do we need to know?): Nothing.

    Unlike PBB, I will decline applications and will ask you to fix certain aspects if I can’t see the character working out.
    ------------------------
    Past Seasons:

    None
    ----------------------
    Current season:

    And after being eliminated from PBB, she comes here. :P Although I have no idea if she'll work out differently.

    Melody the
    Gender: Female
    Personality: A cheerful Pokemon that likes to sing and dance. She enjoys music in all forms, and is also a big fan of Broadway musicals. She's been known to sing things instead of say them, and she dances everywhere. She has a hard time sitting still and being quiet. Too much silence makes her nervous.
    Fear: Silence, having to endure others' bad singing/dancing, dead bodies

    Bum Ju the
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Outgoing and excitable, he was adopted as a child into a family that gave him too much attention, causing an aversion to contact. He is quite friendly, but stay away from him or he will get quite testy. Often makes cute squaking noises
    Fear: hand knit sweaters, being naked, hugs, people invading his space

    Sounds fun!

    Name: Mark
    Gender: M
    Personality: Mark is sweet, outgoing, excitable, and filled with light and life. Probably. He runs under 16 layers of happiness to hide the fact that he feels soul-suckingly lonely, and he doesn't feel like he has any friends. But he'd never tell you that! He's very friendly and at his core, he wants to make other people smile. He also feels the need to be incredibly Artistic. (Everything and anything is art you don't under s ta n d) He'll sing certain phrases of dialogue suddenly, and he's very animated in his movement. His style of singing is similar to that found in the History of Japan video* by Bill Wurtz. Mark loves memes, except DAT BOI and pepe. He's sick of them.
    Fears: Abandonment, rejection, silence, open spaces, choices with lasting consequences, student loans, Donald Trump, the Pope, and bees.

    (*If you don't want to watch all nine minutes of that (though it's highly recommended), all the jingles are here.)

    Name: Erin
    Gender: F
    Personality: Erin is a bitter 'mon, but doesn't let that stop her talking about everyone and everything. She's hard to get a compliment out of as her standards are quite high, but she won't deny a compliment even if she doesn't like the person. She's been known to be quite ferocious if somebody tries to call her mean or unfair or anything in that line, because she doesn't see herself in that light.
    Fears: (What are you afraid of?) Being alone, Fire, Being totally obsolete.
    Other: (What else do we need to know?): She prefers to be around those who take her critiques on the chin and improve, rather than those who take it to heart and fail

    Hehe glad y'all are just as I described.

    Sparkles the
    Sparkles is a really outgoing and excitable Pokemon who will spaz randomly and say things that deviate from any conversation, he laughs at most things and gets fairly annoying at times. Besides that, he is a real sweetheart, he will pretend to listen to you if you're down and never frowns. Just an overall feel good pokemon. From the looks of it, he has Tourettes syndrome... (Am I allowed to do that? Is that politically acceptable for everyone? Let me know if it isn't.) He will randomly laugh or shout words that do not relate to the current situation. It is awfully distracting. (Do not worry everyone, I am NOT making fun of people with turrets, it is just his nature, I apologize if i have offended anyone (Fango)). He also does not know how to control his claws very much, he could randomly cling onto pokemon if they are nearby, it isn't pailful, but could be disturbing to certain folk. He also used to be a professional boxer, so he can put up a fight if he has to.
    Fears: sparkles, bubbles, laughing, aliens, the number 14

    Name: Kamille the
    Gender: F
    Personality: Kamille was head of the cheer squad, prom queen and homecoming queen in high school - facts she won't let anyone ever forget. She doesn't know how to act when she's not being worshipped, and really isn't used to not being the most popular girl around. She's incredibly self-centered and struggles with empathy, but she's never mean for the sake of being mean. She works surprisingly well in groups, as she either enjoys bossing others around or being told exactly what to do (so she doesn't have to think). However, she doesn't do very well on her own, getting lonely without people constantly giving her positive feedback. Deep inside, she's terrified her life ended when she graduated high school - causing her to desperately cling to her teenage persona and stagnate.
    Fears: Being Alone, Irrelevancy, Being Unlovable, Therapists

    Oooh! Let's see here...

    Gizzo the
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Gizzo is a clever mind and smug manipulator who, at the end of the day, is in things for himself. He is a technical and maniacal genius, able to build gadgets and whatnot on a whim, provided materials are available. This ability is actually him compensating for being a total creampuff when it comes to fighting. But in his everyday life he's a tough nut to crack, always causing trouble for others with his machines (Usually outrageous gadgetry or dangerous mechs.) and sporting maniacal laughter now and again!
    Fears: Being bullied, molten magma, deep water, taffy (his claws get stuck in it...), anything with pincers

    Cool, how's about I bring back a nominee from the Reaper games I liked?

    Sapana the
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Sapana is a psychiatrist who majors in dream interpretation. She is a specialist in the specific field of gustatory dream analysis, which is the analysis of patients’ dreams by tasting them. This is, as one would expect, a quite drowzee-specific field, and Sapana is the most skilled of such analysts due to her exceptionally acute palate. Utilizing this, she can taste her patients’ dreams, and use this information to figure out what causes them troubles and anguish, and quite often, what a solution would be to them.

    Sapana often is supportive and helpful, ever offering a hand to anyone who has problems to help them fix it. However, behind this she holds slight troubles of her own. You see, Sapana didn’t choose to be a psychiatrist. It was long her dream to use her exquisite tasting abilities to enter the wine-tasting business. But her mother advised her against it, having barely won a fight against major alcoholism at a younger age (Sapana’s grandfather was a spinda and raised her mother by himself; like many spindas, he was quite fond of the bottle himself). So her mother pressured her to use her tasting abilities to help others instead. Sapana usually tries to be positive about helping people, but secretly, her own biggest wish would be to find someone who would help her overcome the pain that giving up her dream caused. Sapana finds it hardest to fight these feelings in the presence of wine, which will somehow cause her to let go and try some, despite her mother’s strictly forbidding her to consume liquor. Note that Sapana still always adheres to the policy of never getting drunk. To her, it’s the tasting that’s the pleasure, not getting hammered.

    Sapana generally is pretty sharp in terms of how minds work, and can make pretty good guesses of how people are thinking, even before she tastes their dreams (which she never does to anyone who doesn’t ask for it). Sapana’s acute sense of taste can also be useful for other things, like, say, knowing exactly what’s in the food she’s served, including unsavoury plot-related ingredients, etc. That said, she’s more adept at giving words of wisdom and advice than forming strategies like a detective might be. So, she isn’t so much a chessmaster as a master of helping-people-get-over-losing-at-chess master.
    Fears: Pure drunkenness, letting patients down, disappointing her family, the lingering regret that she made the wrong career choice, psychological demons too great for her understanding, insects (bug pokémon are ok, but actual insects can freak her out, she *is* a psychic type)
    Other: I'm sure Sapana and Kamille will get along splendidly
    All fear the vampiric ghost skeletal uber mr. mime caterpie!

    Sure I'll join this (bringing back Darkrai from the box7 thread that closed a while back)


    Name: Ryund
    Gender: M
    Personality: Sarcastic and sassy. He will take every opportunity to make an aggravating comment, but he does so all in good fun and he really does not want to upset any of the other pokemon. If you tell him to stop he probably will.
    Fears: Confinement, bees, flowers, fire, people/pokemon who seem TOO cheerful
    Other: Read his dialog in Tim Curry's voice.

    Name: General Flux the

    Gender: M

    Personality: General Flux, despite his name, isn't actually a general. Rather, he is a nerd who believes he lives within a medieval fantasy world where he partakes in battles against otherworldly creatures known as the "Ascended". In the real world, the Ascened can be anything from actual people to household items, or even just a large oak tree. He believes that joining Pokemon Fear Factor (Redux) is his training in order to promote himself from a lowly knight into a powerful General....thus the name he has already implemented for himself. When he was a young Bunnelby he watched as the Ascened "killed" one of his best friends (The friend moved away). Due to this, he has a fear of losing those close to him. He also hopes to find someone to spend his life with, and have a child with that will help him fight the otherworldly creatures, though that is currently a second thought in comparison to upgrading himself to a mighty General. He wields a decently sized stick in his right ear...hand....that he claims to be the mighty lance "The Burrower", said to impale his enemies.

    Fears: Losing Comrades in Battle, Extremely Powerful Units of "The Ascended", Garden Hoses and other things that create streams of water, People who try to explain to him that the world he lives in is all in his head.

    Other: Yes, I essentially just created an insane guy who thinks he's in Fire Emblem... also, his fear of Garden Hoses (ect.) is my own interpretation of "Magic" attacks, as Knights usually have low resistance...blah blah blah. Also, for sanity sake, unless the writers decide otherwise, the other members of the game would be - in Flux's eyes - other warriors from different nations attempting to promote themselves.

    Name: (What do you want to be called) manchu
    Gender: (Simple) male
    Personality: (How do you act?/Other character traits) manchu is the result of a fusion between pikachu and ganondorf, getting very long limbs and looking like a man, hence his name. Because of a bug in the game, manchu could leave the game he was in (SSBB) and explore the world. However, he's quite glitchy and can randomly teleport or flicker or randomly change colors. Manchu also frequently tries to separate ganondorf from his body. Ganondorf causes him to do evil things like destroying buildings without pikachu actually wanting it. The pikachu has a brave, battle-ready personality. He likes candy and fighting other nintendo characters.
    Fears: (What are you afraid of?) ground-type pokemon, link, zelda
    Other: (What else do we need to know?): manchu is different from other pikachus. Whenever another pikachu encounters him, it runs away in fear.

    I guess this will work

    Name: (What do you want to be called) mark the magikarp
    Gender: (Simple) Male
    Personality: (How do you act?/Other character traits) mark is one of the weakest magikarps in existence. He was bullied at the karp high school and sucked at life so he left and explored the world. He's very shy and avoids battling as much as possible. He does have a good sense of hmor and often tells jokes though. He also has alzheimer's and pokerus. His biggest wish is to evolve so he would no longer be so weak.
    Fears: (What are you afraid of?) fighting, any strong pokemon, death, skeletons
    Other: (What else do we need to know?): Nothing.

    ----
    - Next up is Bum Ju!

    - SQUAWK!

    - *puts her hand on his shoulder*- It'll be okay...what are some things that make you shiver?

    - Bla! Don't you DARE invade my space!

    - Oh, dear! You are quite the testy type...aren't ya? Must not be a fan of physical contact. Sheesh.
    -------
    - Next up is...Mark!...wait...there’s TWO Marks? Here is
    Mark(B)!

    - HEY!!!

    - What is something that keeps you up at night?

    - ~Rejection!~

    - Oookay...you seem awfully happy about that.
    --------
    : On to the next contestant, Erin!

    : Let's just get this over with

    : Okay then Erin, tell us something you fear?

    : *Glares at him* Why would I tell you my weaknesses?

    : ...Okay then. Bit bitter, but I can guess as an Ice-Type you're not one for fire?

    : *Gives a slight nod, before walking off*

    : ...On to the next contestant!!!

    ----
    : Hello there what's your name?

    : My name is Sparkles-sparkles where?!!!

    : A fear of...your name?

    - Yes, but that is unimportant. What is important, what are you afraid of?

    - I agree. I prefer the technical side of things. Alright, let’s move on!
    ----
    - Next up we have...Sapana

    - Why helloooooo! What do we have here? Hmm...I smell an overly excitable Squirtle who who might be better off focusing on what she already has then instead of creating what will become useless by your own hand?

    - Oh me...that is very deep. Not quite sure I understand. You seem to be very intellectual. What is something that shakes you in your boots m’dear?

    - Letting down one of my patients and disappointing my parents go hand in hand are just some fears I live with daily.

    -----
    - Next up, We have Ryund the

    - Kinda...What are some fears that you have?

    - Oh, are you threatened by me that you want to know that I fear bees so you can get me out?

    - Nope. Just getting an idea of where to go for the first challenge. Bees does seem to be the strangest most popular pick though. NEXT!
    -----
    - I am so honored to have our next contestants. The honorable General Flux..who looks kinda scared.

    - *huffs and puffs* Thankfully I just escaped. I didn’t think I could get out of there safely.

    - What? That walk was only ten feet. It’s the safest part of the competition.

    - But the ascended was after me! *Points to the welcome sign*

    - On...you are one of THOSE people. Looks like we know what you are afraid of...hehehe...this will be fun..
    -----
    : And onto our next contestant, it's Mark(M)!

    : *Gets in shyly, approaching Squidley*

    : Pleasure to have you Mark(M) *puts hand out for a handshake*

    : *Flinches, backing away slightly* P-please don't hit me.

    : ...*Retracts hand* Fear of fighting. Got it.
    ----
    There will be NO voting at this time. This is just to get everyone(including me and Fango) familiar with the characters and to give me ideas for the first fear(s) the challenge will be based off of. As I said, there will be no voting but feel free to discuss the characters you like, dislike, ways you liked/didn’t liked how your character was written. I should have the first episode up within 10 days. Hopefully.

    And you have already captured General Flux brilliantly. Though I do hope his entire character isn't summed up as him constantly trying to get away from the ascended, and that he actually interacts with some characters, or does something competent.

    One thing I'm really looking forward to is seeing how some of these characters interact; namely Sapana with Kamille and Flux, as both characters look like they'll have some sort of issue with her being a psychiatrist.

    It'll be nice to see Melody actually develop a personality besides singing a random song. ^w^

    Hehe, he's got the maniacal laughter down, maybe a bit too much!

    Though I was hoping he would be making a gadget setting it loose on another contestant, like a windup Poochyena or something. I bet he wouldn't like Sparkles, either...

    Sapana and Kamille look like they will be the most interesting to follow, especially when they interact with each other. I did enjoy Bum Ju too.

    I guess I had been under the impression when I joined that I would be the one writing Ryund, but ah well. I am interested to see how you write him, I imagine him very different from your version, so I am interested in seeing where you take him. Flux is going to be hilarious.
