Gotcha, Reserved Female Ranger.
So...I don't know how, but I think I just made a middle eastern cowboy. XD
Name: The Great Gatsby A.K.A Lauren Fray Gatsby
Hometown/Region: Ecruteak Temple/Johto
Appearance: Gatsby is obviously of Indian descent. And by Indian, I mean that of someone who worships Hindu gods. She is very tan, with skin the color of red dirt, she has thin black eyes coated with a thick layer of black lashes. She has soft cheeks on a face that is often specked with dirt. She is very fit and muscular, having rough edges on her shoulders, elbows, and knees. She has a tight fitted stomach with a chest that is smaller than most, possibly a B cup. Her hips make up for this however, and stand out to give her some curve. She has a tattoo on her shoulder of a single Irish knot. She has a single dot on her forehead that is a simple mole, common in her heritage. Her lips are red and thin, often kept in a smirk with a strand of hay between the teeth. She has very thick black hair that she has to tie up in order to keep out of her face, although several long strands end up in her face as long bangs most of the time anyways. Her hair is often tied in a very thick braid that falls down to her shoulder blades or in a ponytail that is tied every few inches, like Jasmine from Alladin. If down her hair falls down to her waist, thick, mangy, and filled with knots.
Gatsby’s look can’t really be described. You could say that she looks like a cowboy, or that she looks like an Indian warrior. No one has really agreed yet. Gatsby wears a ten-gallon leather hat, worn with scratches and creases. It is tied with a simple rope and occasionally a note if necessary. She generally tips this over her face to add a shading effect. The rope occasionally slips over as well, leaning off of the hat. On her chest she wears a type of sari. On her chest she has the top part which is a rich color of orange, standing out from her skin, clutching to her waist to show of her thin figure. It ends a few inches above her belly button. On it there are designs in a hot pink that are like small flowers and suns, dancing around her chest. Over this Gatsby wears a poncho that is made of yarn with little braided threads sticking out from the ends. It falls over her should and ends at a point in the middle of her waist, and falls lower at her back. The poncho is simply in pattern, only having thick stripes run across it that are shades of faded yellow, brown, and red. This fabric shields her from the sun. Tied under the fabric and just below her sari are her genie pants, which are burgundy in color, almost matching her poncho, and go from her belly button and end all the way down to the poof at her chins. Under these she has leather boots, matching the cowboy hat in shade and in the level of worn. They have a small heel and a little star behind it that clicks with each step she takes. She wears a leather belt over her pants that holds her water, berries, and her classic weapon and tool, the lasso she keeps wrapped in a loop on on of the straps.
So, I guess to sum it up you could describe as a cowboy Indian.
Personality: Gatsby is an adventurer, and she is well aware of it. In fact, she’ll tell you that she’s the best there is. She is strong with the lasso, able to take a fight in the bar if necessary, having some hard fights herself. She isn’t as good in battle, but you’d never hear her admit it. On the outside, she reveals no weakness, being funny by smarting off to others and by defending the weak from the bullies. She’ll be grinning most of the time, and it will take much to get her angry or upset.
The first way would be to be stubborn. She doesn’t like it when she has to beat up the bad guy more than once. It annoys her quickly, and she may begin to get a little pissed off. The usual jokes will disappear, and she will suddenly become much more quiet and threatening. She isn’t as much of a yeller, but is more of the type to whisper threats, which to some might be even more terrifying than the former. Another way to get her upset is to be weakened. Whether she loses a friend or an arm it weakens her, and makes her disappointed in herself. She doesn’t like failing because she often promises others she won’t. So, she’ll often retreat to herself for that moment of time.
Because of her promises, Gatsby will most likely be the most stubborn person you have ever met. She neutral about most things, but the things she does have an opinion on will be stood up for, even when proven completely wrong. If she was convinced that there were flying elephants in space, you better be too or else you’re asking for a knuckle sandwich.
Gatsby is a skilled survivalist, she knows how to make a tent, start a fire, catch some meat, gather berries, all sorts of stuff to make life in nature a bit easier. However, she is weak in other things, such as manners and hygiene. She is almost always covered in dirt from travel, and doesn’t remember to say please or thank you unless it’s something she really cares about. She doesn’t mind spitting a loogie either, and don’t you dare make a comment about the stereotype that girls are weaker than boys, or you’re basically asking to get punched in the face.
Now you may think because of Gatsby’s act that she wouldn’t be interested in romance. And you would be right. But that doesn’t mean that she can’t admire something she finds handsome. She is very flirtatious, and even though there is no chance in hell that she’d actually commit to a relationship, she would tell you up front how nice your butt looked in that light of day. But who knows, maybe the right person would have her be more committed.
Gatsby travels a lot, so often makes a lot of friends on the way. However, no one loves the life of adventure as much as she does, so often she finds her only real friend is Jones. This makes her rather lonely, and she has little trust in those around her. However, maybe after some time she can learn to be less independent and to let herself rely on others for a while.
History: Gatsby was born to a single mother in the Ecruteak Tower with the other members of her family, mostly women, helping her through the trouble. Her father the day he learned that the woman was pregnant, only leaving her a note saying to name the girl after his mother, Lauren Fray Gatsby. Although her mother despised the man from that day on, she respected his decision and named the girl in her grandmother’s name. Gatsby spent most of her childhood in the house of women, learning how to cook and sew and clean. Gatsby wasn’t very good at it and hated it. Though she gained the looks of her mother she gained the cowboy spirit of her father, and dreamed of a life of adventure. Gatsby heard stories about her father from her grandmother, who was her mother’s mother. Although the woman didn’t like what he did to her daughter, she told the stories of his travels anyways, knowing the child would miss her father. Gatsby never met him, and only knew of his abandonment and his travels. She wanted to be like him, except more loyal to the ones she loved. When she told her mother this, she was astonished at the child and told her to tarnish the idea, since she would need to learn more lady-like things instead.
Gatsby lived next door to a breeding family, and there lived a girl about her age. They soon became friends and although the girl was more quiet and obedient and Gatsby was loud and troublesome, they had a strong bond that could last for ages.
As Gatsby slowly climbed into adolescence she considered the idea of running away. And the more she thought of it, the more and more appealing the idea sounded. Finally, at the age of thirteen, she convinced herself to leave, taking the necessary supplies in order to do so, only wearing the most comfortable sari and carrying a small pack with food and water. She left a note on the counter explaining her reasons, and was about to leave the town when her friend stopped her. She said that an egg had appeared in her yard that morning, and that she wanted Gatsby to have it. Gatsby gladly accepted and said a sad goodbye to her friend before leaving, making it the first day of an incredible adventure.
At first, things were very hard for her. She had to run from pokemon herself, becoming an expert in the ways of camouflage in order to survive, until her egg finally hatched. She named him Jones and with him the journey became much easier and more fun, and she gained a new friend. She went as far as the land of Sinnoh and picked up different items and stories along the way. She had been in tangled with Ursarings and had duels with profound trainers. She began to create a name for herself, The Great Gatsby, and was incredibly happy while doing it, loving the sense of adventure.
After a while she grew tired of Sinnoh, since she had travelled most of the region and came back to a region closer to home: Tohjo. She headed for Silver Town, because she had heard some rumors that something was going down over there.
Other: Gatsby has a western accent.
Starter Pokémon: Cyndaquil
Pokémon Appearance: Jones looks completely average beyond the plaid red wool scarf that is tied around his neck like a bandana.
Pokémon Personality: Jones is very silent. This isn’t because he is shy but mostly because he has nothing to say. If someone expects a response from him you better hope they weren’t expecting much, since most of the time he either says “Yup” or “Nope” but this can be changed if you make him upset, which is most easily done by hurting others. He is protective over Gatsby and often thinks she is too reckless and dangerous, and often tries to pull her out of these situations. Sometimes it saves her life.
Pokémon History: Right before Gatsby was going to leave her friend from the Breeder family gave her an egg. Through time it hatched and their journey began.
Attacks: Tackle, Smokescreen, Ember
Pokémon Other: Jones favorite food is pasta.

The Great Gatsby is accepted!
I'd like to reserve as a trainer please.
Say, any way I could reserve a ranger?
Both of you are reserved.
Okay, I will be starting now.
Okay - Guys who have signed up but not posted SU's, can you get them up soon? I'm needing to know you're sticking around, and I'm needing to get an idea of numbers currently, as I have a minimum and maximum limit.
Just saying, I'm nearly done with my SU, I just need to get the last couple of Pokémon sections done, then I'll be ready.
EDIT: Finally done.
Name: Skye Silverstone
Hometown/Region: Just outside Goldenrod City/Tohjo
Description: Skye is quite tall for her age; she stands at an impressive 170cm, and she also appears to be slim, though this is only because her bones are thin - she wouldn't be as skinny if her bones were of regular size, maybe even be on the slightly chubby side. Due to this, Skye is slightly heavier than she looks, but only slightly - she only weighs at 48kg, which still isn't that much at all. As Skye is an avid dancer, her legs are surprisingly athletic and muscular, though of course they stay mostly hidden under her dress; however, her figure still doesn't have that much of a muscular build otherwise. Also, it's her legs that give her a boost in height, as they are quite long - long for her age, anyway. Her skin is pale, and very sensitive; she is prone to sunburns.*
Skye's eyes are of a pale, peculiar shade of blue-grey, that seem to shine somewhat under the sunshine, and her hair is long, wavy, and light blonde, with swirls of light brown. Her hair comes down to her waist, but she usually keeps it tied back in a loose ponytail, though she usually keeps some of the strands out carelessly. Her mouth is quite smaller than average, and she has slight freckles, though they are not that visible, due to them being rather pale. Her lips seem to be almost naturally formed in a slight smile all the time, and she is rarely ever seen frowning, let alone expressionless.*
Skye, being an upper-class young lady, dresses like one; she wears an ankle-length dress which is pale blue in color with short, ruffled sleeves as well as a large turquoise bow on the back. She, surprisingly, absolutely hates wearing a corset, and goes without one despite being the daughter of an earl. She wears plain white shoes, and to shield her skin from the sunlight, she usually wears a large white sunhat to stop the sun from scorching her face. However, to hide her identity, as the police is probably searching for her, Skye also wears a dark-blue cloak which she wears behind her dress and around her head, tied around at her neck (image will be provided if necessary), so that it conceals most of her body and her face, even though it only comes down to just above the rim of her dress. However, she doesn't wear the hood that often, instead preferring to expose her hair so that she doesn't feel as stuffy. She has a beige satchel as well, to keep all her belongings in. *
Personality: Skye has the innocence and intense curiosity of a child; she can be dense and oblivious at times, missing plainly obvious clues at times, but she isn't exactly stupid, either; though she isn't exactly a genius either, her intense curiosity and will to seek out the truth let her find out about things she wouldn't normally know at her age (and yes, this does include... that). She is always eager to find out about the world, the different Pokémon, about the other regions, and basically everything in existence, often spending time in the library, surrounded by books and encyclopedias. She can also be very nosy sometimes, and even though when she is nosy she never means any harm, it can irritate some people.*
Skye has a weak mind, and is easily persuaded, as well as easily overcome by emotion. She just can't stand watching someone get hurt or abused, and she will do anything she can to stop the victim from being harmed any further. She has an extremely kind and gentle heart, and has a strong sense of justice. Because of her status as a female in her family, she has grown to be more of a quiet listener than a talker, due to her upbringing as a child. However, this does not mean that she is unable to express her emotions; she feels extremely guilty about telling lies, and as an honest person, she sometimes finds it hard to keep her thoughts to herself. She is also a generous and caring person, and is willing to listen to others' problems and help them out in any way possible - she often finds herself as the big sister of the group. In addition to this, she hates having to fight, being a pacifist and strongly against violence, but despite this, she does understand that sometimes, some fighting is required to settle matters.*
Now, onto her honesty. Skye hates telling lies, and dislikes whoever tells lies unless that person has a good reason to do so. She tries to be honest whenever she can, and feels extremely guilty when she hides something from her close ones or tells a lie to them, so avoids doing that as much as possible. She is also very trustworthy, and promises never to tell anyone's secrets. She will never betray anyone, and if she ever does, chances are that she'll feel so guilty, it will plague her mind for weeks, if not months. Despite this, on rare occasions, she will betray others if she really needs to or if it comes with a large reward (after all, she is easily persuaded). One other "negative" trait she has is her over-emotional personality, as she can be put off, angered, and excited by the smallest things. She is also easily frightened and takes most jokes seriously, which, paired with her very weak mind, can prove to have disastrous effects.*
Another thing that should be noted is that Sky is quite shy and socially awkward; though she can be very sociable and friendly if you manage to befriend her, she prefers not to talk to strangers or approach them that often, unless she absolutely needs to. She also prefers silence to noise and the such; she hates crowded spaces in general, as they are often headache-inducing for her.*
History: Skye was born to Lord Silverstone, the 7th Earl of Azalea, a talented and well-educated man. She was the youngest of four, with all three of her older siblings being male, and though she (to her parent's relief ) didn't follow in their boyish, troublesome ways, she often felt left out as she was unable to join in the games they played due to her being a girl, and longed to be more like her brothers, even though she didn't have the courage to do any of the things that her brothers did, such as horse-riding or jousting. She instead preferred to sit in the estate's prestigious garden, dubbed "Joy Garden" due to the happy Pokémon residing within the garden, and play with the Pokémon there. Skye became close enough with some of the Pokémon that she could understand their pattern of speech, as well as know their favourite kinds of food. She, being a natural cook, a talent she inherited from her grandmother, often cooked dishes and poffins for the Pokémon, earning their trust.*
One particular Pokémon Skye was especially close to was a young Houndour, whom she affectionately nicknamed Artemis. Their friendship had first started out as Artemis' love for Skye's spicy poffins, and over time, they gradually began spending more time with each other. Eventually they became the best of friends, and when Skye wasn't having her private lessons, she was almost always found outside with Artemis, playing all sorts of games like catch and tug-of-war with her.*
However, despite the fact that Skye came from a wealthy and upper-class family, there was one serious drawback in her life; her family was very traditional, which meant that females in the family didn't have as many opportunities or privileges as the men, and they were often left to take care of the household and the servants. Skye was no exception to this, and therefore not only was she unable to learn the more interesting subjects that her brothers had the luxury of learning, such as Geography and History, she was also expected to stay inside the house and help her mother than play outside with the Pokémon. Of course, there were lots of parties - at least one every month - but Skye hated the very idea of parties, disliking the loud music and the noisy chatter, not to mention the large crowd that always came. She much preferred peace and quiet. Therefore, Skye was often forced to be well-mannered and tame, though what she really wanted to do was to explore the region.*
One day, Skye overheard two of the servants conversing about the Silver Town Campaign, or whatever it was called - apparently, people from all around the world were invited to join and to start their own Pokémon Journeys. At once Skye was fascinated by this concept, and longed to be a part of it. But of course, her background meant that that would be a completely unacceptable thing to do; it would be a disgrace to the family to have such an unladylike female like her, going off on Pokémon Journeys like that. But she was determined to participate in the Campaign no matter what, captivated by the idea of exploring Tohjo freely and with her Pokémon, and therefore, one moonless night, on a night where everyone was occupied with a huge party that was being *in the estate, and, calling out Artemis from Joy Garden, she explained her plan of escaping to Silver Town, and how she wanted her to accompany her and officially become her Pokémon. Willing to help out Skye at all times, Artemis obliged without objection, and so, the two of them set out for Silver Town, both with high hopes.*
Other: Skye speaks with a posh, upper-class accent (or to be more specific, British), though she tries to hide this so it isn't obvious that she comes from an upper-class family. To hide her accent she speaks quietly.*
Starting Pokémon: Houndour
Pokémon Appearance: Artemis is just a normal Houndour to most, but upon closer inspection, you'll learn that 1) the plates on her back are actually a darker shade of the usual silver or grey, 2) her pupils are larger in size and more like dark brown than black, and 3) she is larger than normal, at the height of 0.75m (2.5 feet) tall - a full 0.05m (0.5 feet) taller than your average Houndour. She is also quite compared to most, weighting at about 13kg (29lbs), while the average Houndour would weigh slightly less than that.*
Pokémon Personality: Artemis is playful and mischievous, as well as a huge troublemaker, but she can be very sweet at times - that is, when she is around Skye, or when she is trying to get out of trouble, or when she is begging for food - but that doesn't mean that Artemis cannot be genuinely kind either. Under her bold, fearless cover, you will find an Artemis who is caring and generous, and someone who is protective and like a big sister to some. Artemis also hates being dependent on someone else, preferring to train and hunt alone (unless Skye's delicious poffins are involved) as well as solve her own problems by herself - she doesn't like having to place her own burdens on anyone else, not even Skye.*
Pokémon History: Artemis was an orphan from an early age, and therefore often relied on herself to get her tasks done (hence why she likes being independent). One day she was lured into Joy Garden by the delicious smell of poffins wafting through the air, and there she found Skye. Artemis continued to hang around Joy Garden, happy to be able to play with Pokémon of her age and to eat Skye's specialty poffins, and over time, the two of them bonded.*
Attacks: Leer, Howl, Ember, Smog, Thunder Fang
Pokémon Other: One of Artemis' ancestors was a Luxray (which explains the Egg Move). She is also allergic to some kinds of berries, most particularly Chesto Berries, and will be unable to use any Fire-Type Moves if she eats any of the berries that she's allergic to.*

There are a few things I'm not completely sure about, but after consideration.... Accepted.
What things? If you find traces of Unova in there, I'll fix that for ya.
Can you edit the bit about Police looking for her? The Police shouldn't be hunting her down unless she's a convict. More pressing matters are taking place.
Finally, can you reconsider Artemis having a Luxray parent? And what level is Artemis approximately? most trainers should have a level 1-10 starter in game equivalents..

I'll get mine up soon, possibly by today.
2) The police may or may not be out looking for Skye, but if they are, it's because a) she's missing and b) her family's obviously angry and worried about her. I think an upper-class family would care more about their daughter missing than a civil war that might not even happen.
3) Artemis should be around Lv.10 (she has the moves she would know at Lv.10). I don't see the problem with that.
Well, here's the sign-up.
Name: Callum Smith
Hometown/Region: Blackthorn Ridge, Johto Plains, Tohjo
Appearance: Callum is a pretty tall person, being around six feet tall if he stands up straight. He possesses incredibly messy hair that nearly reaches his shoulders, due to rarely ever using a comb during his travels around the Johto area. The front part of his hair hangs down over his forehead, with some strands nearly covering his eyes. It is a pale brown colour, but is sometimes mistaken for blond if seen from a distance. His eyes are an amber colour, a trait that he inherited from his mother. His skin is slightly tanned from all the time in the Sun, and he possesses a fairly average build, being only slightly more muscular than most.
Having been a member of a rather well-off middle class family that owned a decently sized piece of land, Callum's choice of clothing is a bit more sophisticated than most, but is still rather simple compared to the standards of the upper class. He wears a buttoned long-sleeved white shirt with a collar. The top button of the shirt is not done up, for he finds it rather uncomfortable. Worn over the shirt is a red and black plaid vest/waist-jacket, and when travelling over dusty roads he sometimes wears a duster as well. His choice of lower body garments include brown trousers, which are somewhat baggy, and dark grey boots.
Another piece of clothing he rather likes wearing is a wide-brimmed boater hat to protect him from the light of the Sun.
Personality: Callum is a pretty laid-backed person, having a rather relaxed view on life and everything it contains. He takes things easy, knowing that stressing out on everything may lead to more problems in the future. Due to this, some believe he is lazy person, but he is far from being one, having a rather dedicated work ethic and a strong sense of duty. He would do anything one would ask of him, as long as it was reasonable and did not involve anything illegal.
However, he can also be very stubborn at times, and once he obtains a task, will focus all his resources and energy into completing it. It is very difficult to stop him when he is focused, and it is even harder to convince him that his opinions are incorrect. This shows his passion for everything he does, no matter how big or small. Yet it is impossible for one to convince him that something is impossible, for he believes that anything is possible if one tries hard enough.
Despite being a rather kind and relaxed person, Callum sometimes has moments where he bursts into intense rage. When angry, he can be rather illogical at times, and will refuse to listen to reason unless one pounds it into his skull. Fortunately, it is actually rather difficult to get him angry, for he is able to keep his temper in check very well, and can tolerate most mistakes and the like.
History: Callum spent most of his early life on his family's estate near Blackthorn, where he was born. His parents were rather well-off landowners, and were able to provide him with a decent education throughout most of the time he spent at his home. This was a boon to him, for it would help him greatly later on in his life. During these days he was a rather energetic fellow, and got into trouble a lot. This trait of his was what allowed him to bond better with Henry the Aipom, the Pokemon he received from his parents as a gift on his thirteenth birthday, when most children normally decided to explore the world as a trainer. However, he decided not to, and stayed home to continue his education.
Two years later, he made the choice of following in one of his cousins' footsteps, and become a Ranger. Motivated by a desire to see the world in peace, and to help people out with their problems, Callum set off on his journey, working as hard as he possibly could to assist others. Throughout his journeys, he slowly matured into a more relaxed and less energetic person, but he still kept the good cheer he had when he was younger. It was a rather enjoyable thing to do for him, and as the years passed, his experience in helping people grew, leaving him content, for he was able to bring happiness to others.
One day, after helping out another person, he learnt of something known as the Silver Campaign. This piqued his curiosity, and he went off to learn more about it. As he discovered more facts about the event, he began to wonder if he should join in or not. Despite holding off his decision for a while, spending most of his time continuing to work as a Ranger, he was finally overwhelmed by his interest in it, and set off for Silver Town, intent on trying out something new.
Other: Callum has experience with fishing.
Starter Pokémon: Aipom
Pokémon Appearance: Unlike other Aipom, Henry is a slightly darker shade of purple, and wears a rather dashing red bow-tie.
Pokémon Personality: Henry is a rather energetic being, possessing a fondness for climbing trees and running around. He is rather cheerful like his trainer, and is very curious about the world and everything in it.
Pokémon History: Henry was originally caught by Callum's parents, who later gave the Aipom to him as a gift. The two struck up a fast friendship, both being full of energy. The two regularly got into trouble when they were younger, and he has stayed by Callum's side since they first met.
- Tail Whip
- Sand Attack
Pokémon Other: N/A

I'll probably want to be a trainer from the Undella Temples, but I want to know how much artistic license I get with what the temples are like.
I sort of imagine it as sort of a cross between a western Christian and eastern Buddhist monastery, with elements from both of these and some that I just stick in there for the heck of it (like martial arts practice and intense physical training after Mass and quiet prayer and meditation). The monks could primarily worship Kyurem, seeking balance in careful decision-making and simple kindness to all humans and Pokemon after witnessing the fall of both the lost desert city devoted to Reshiram and the town built around Dragonspiral Tower and devoted to Zekrom, who both took their pursuit of truth and ideals to the extreme and refused to compromise when they risked war with each other.
Anyways, that little bit of mythology isn't going to conflict with anything you have planned, is it? Also:
(a) Golett is okay as a starter, right? And...
(b) Will it be possible to obtain Pokemon not native to Tohjo?
3DS Friend Code: 1864 - 8413 - 3256
Flame Mistress - on the contrary, the Silver Town campaign is funded by the League, which is funded by the upper-class of Tohjo - they'd have paid money towards it themselves, regardless of whether they wanted Skye to be involved.
I can understand the police bit, but your argument about this civil war - it will be the rich who will be affected most - after all, the rich own the big factories in Kanto and the huge plantations in Johto - they're the ones arguing. Skye's family will be in an intense deadlock with Kanto upper-class people.
Finally, it isn't the levels I was worried about due to the moves, it was simply the Luxray parent and the knowing of Thunder Fang - but then again, being a n upper-class family means they may have been able to get hold of a Luxray. My only query is you mention it being an ancestor - Luxray are rarely seen in Tohjo. I have mentioned this in the first post.
Titan500 - I'd like more info on his history please - it is very short. Pending.
Golett is in the restricted list - but it will be possible to obtain Pokemon not native to Tohjo throughout, through many events.

1) I also mentioned that Skye's family is very traditional, so they would've opposed the very idea of the Silver Town Campaign.
2) Which would be your priority? Saving your business, or saving your daughter? Just because she "humiliated" the family, doesn't mean that they'll just let her die in the wilderness, because that sure as hell isn't an upper-class way to die. Sure, they care about their plantations as well, but finding Skye would be their priority for now, while someone else takes care of the plantations. I think they can spare some time for that.
3) What I imagined was that Pokémon used to be imported to Joy Gardens, much like Trophy Garden, but only temporarily for display. However, some of the imported Pokémon mated with the native Pokémon, then their descendants were free to roam about the land, and a few years after the imported Pokémon left, the next earl opened it for all the wild Pokémon, and many returned to the Gardens. Artemis is one of those descendants, though she originally didn't return to Joy Gardens at first. By the way, when I meant "ancestor", I meant more along the lines of grandfather/great-grandfather than great x10-grandfather or something like that.
Ah, I see. I'll get to editing him once I get back from school.
EDIT: Edited my signup post.

Sorry I took so long! Also, forget my Ranger reserve.
Name: Cameron Rawell
Hometown/Region: Oreburgh Mines/Sinnoh
Appearance: You can tell Cameron is a miner just from the way he looks. He is very muscular and tall, about 6'4". His height makes it so all the muscle doesn't look too awkward. He is broad shoulders, akin to a modern day football player.*
He is Caucasian with short blonde hair and two different colored eyes. One of his eyes is green while the other is blue. In his shining hair he has tiny hints of black, most likely from mining. His eyes are usually squinted to adjust to the light.
He has a somewhat strange wardrobe. He wears beige khaki shorts on a daily basis and wears a camouflage T-Shirt. When he works, he wears a very dark green jumpsuit and workboots. One of his feet is larger than the other because of a genetic disease that runs through his family. Another genetic thing is that sometimes his fingertip turn a sickly shade of purple. Lastly, he has a scar that runs across his left arm.
Personality: Cameron, despite his history, is a very lighthearted person, and he normally doesn't get sad. He is usually calm, yet at the same time is almost never serious. He can brake at points when he's confused and goes all out on people. *He is somewhat sarcastic, but never uses it in a way that would be cruel or harmful to others.
Despite his lightheartedness, Cameron hates the arts. He finds them completely pointless and a waste of time. He partially feels this way because he has no talent besides being an extremely fast miner. He still thinks more people should work instead of singing or dancing, though.
Lastly, Cameron is very superstitious. He believes in voodoo and charms and all of that stuff. He can often be found doing rituals to speak to the dead or buying so-called "potions."
History: *Cameron is an orphan, but was never in an orphanage. He's never had anyone to rely on, it was always just him. In fact, he used to be an extremely depressing person. One day, though, a therapist came to talk to him. She said that everyone goes through things, and that he wasnt alone, but he would be if he always acted so sad and malicious. So he changed his attitude and is now much happier.
He found out about the Silver Town challenge during a mining expedition. While searching for some diamond, one of his co workers mentioned his niece *was begging her parents to go on a Pokemon journey. Cameron went to the library and read up on it, and decided to do it.
Other: None, really.
Starter Pokemon: Bronzor
Pokemon Appearance: A normal Bronzor, a steel circle thingy. One difference, though. The difference is Hephaestus is shiny.
Pokemon Personality: Hephaestus is very innocent. It is often caught doing things it doesn't know are wrong. It is also somewhat devious, usually using its innocence as a ploy.
Pokemon History: When Cameron was mining in whats now known as Mt. Coronet, he accidentally destroyed Hephaestus' habitat. So, Cameron took some of the stones he mined and rebuilt one in his place. They somehow had a connection and became good friends.
Attacks: Tackle, Confusion, Hypnosis
Hope this is good enough.
Both Callum Smith (Titan500) and Cameron Rawell (Zapphire) are accepted.
Some of you may be wondering where my SU's are.
At the moment, I'm debating whether to just be a GM, or actively involve myself with my two characters, or, at least, one of them. Alongside this, if i do go ahead, i want it to be the final post in here, at least before the RP starts. Just so I can get it all up in one big go and do a final check before it goes ahead.
If anyone has views on whether a character or both of my characters should be made, or whether I should just GM the RP, let me know.
Name: Hedge Goldenwood.
Hometown: Mahogany Village/ Johto Plains.
Appearance: Hedge's shirt is a plaid short sleeve dressy top with a pair of gloves with it. He also wears corduroys with his cowboy boots. He has a couple Pokeballs attached to his belt. His hair is a light brown- red which is Auburn his corduroys are light blueish brownish. And his boots are brown with spikes on the heels which are Gold,Green, and Blue.
Personality: Hedge loves to laugh and make jokes but he doesn't always take things seriously making him get in trouble. He feels a little lonely at times because he is considered crazy by everyone and could really use a friend. He often can get very scared. But he is very brave and tosses his scare before and steps forth to help anyone in trouble.
History: Hedge was born in Johto in Mahogany Town and was born on February 1st. When he was old enough for his first Pokemon he was really excited and couldn't get to sleep thinking about it. But he got to sleep and woke up really early to receive his Pokemon. Which is a Chikorita. He had been scared when he heard of the Tohjo War. But he tries to ignore it and is currently on his journey to the first gym with his Chikorita. But years back he came across a couple of mean Pokemon. They charged at him ready to bite but Hoja came out and hit them all with Razorleaf at least 3 times. Hedge was very proud of his Hoja. He trusts it completely and still remembers that day.
Starter Pokémon: Chikorita.
Nickname (if any):Leaf/Hoja.
Gender (or Genderless):Male.
Pokémon Appearance: The spikes on it's side are smaller than usual but have just a tint of blue at the end and it's leaf is much softer than a regular Chikorita. Not much difference between a regular Chikorita. Except for the fact of there being a leaf printed on his stomach ever since he got him. It is revealed later why it is there.
Pokémon Personality: Leaf can be a bit shy at times but eager to make new friends. He also can be a little bit of a one for lying and showing off. Hedge doesn't mind it because it's crazy as well as he is so he feels someone he can relate too.
Pokémon History: At the Pokemon Research Center they built in his town. He had chosen Chikorita because of his eagerness to befriend it and his hope and devotion to becoming a friend to it. They have been lost in the woods together and Hedge got very scared on the first night. So he started to sniff but not cry. But Leaf came up and sat in his lap and by doing something with his leaf on his head managed to hum a lullaby and soon Hedge and Leaf were both asleep. They are currently lost in the woods.
Attacks: Razorleaf, Poisonpowder, Tackle, and Growl. He will probably learn more later.
