    Throughout the Pokemon world, there are few occupations as prestigious as the Gym Leader. The title alone exemplifies power and expertise. Instrumental in teaching the next generation of trainers how to work alongside Pokemon. However, the process of becoming one is extremely difficult. Many Gyms are family-run, and other Gym Leaders have maintained their jobs well into their elderly years. As a result, the number of people hoping to become new Gym Leaders greatly outnumber the amount of Gyms. Just getting noticed can seem impossible. Two years ago, a special event, known as the Kalos Invitational, was held. In this event, the participants had a chance to showcase their abilities to talent scouts and influential figures from all over the world. However, the event was disrupted and ultimately canceled. Now, two years later, an announcement was made that the event has been given new life. Once again, it's to be held in Lumiose City's own Pokémon Gym.

    Rules
    • All regular Bulbagarden rules apply
    • No godmodding.
    • Keep content PG-13
    • Try not to ping-pong while your character is not in a battle. A little character development is fine, but be moderate.
    • Be reasonable while your character is in a battle. It’s no fun if your character’s Pokémon somehow manage to miraculously dodge all attacks.
    • Give your opponent a chance to react to your attacks when battling. Try not to say your attacks land immediately before your opponent can dodge or fight back.
    • If your character is due to battle and you do not post for three days, it will result in disqualification. If you're going to be unable to post, let me know in advance so I can try to accommodate.
    • Your character will be allowed to use three Pokémon in the tournament, with four moves each. They cannot change their moves during the tournament.
    • No Legendary Pokemon or Mega Evolutions

    My Character
    Trainer: Mick Brooks.
    Age: 15
    Gender: Male
    Appearance: He has short black hair, blue eyes, wears a red shirt, blue jeans and a pair of green fingerless gloves.
    Personality: He loves Pokemon more than anything else, whether it's his own or wild Pokemon. Because of this, he can be reckless in order to protect them. Towards people, however, he is rather shy at first.
    Due to past battling experience, he is able to determine with ease which of his Pokémon's moves are the best choice, from one glance at the opponent's Pokémon. However, he has a tendency to get a bit too cocky when things seem to be going well for him.

    Backstory: Prefers to keep it to himself. He participated in the original Kalos Invitational.

    Name: Lee Yoobin
    Age: 19
    Gender: Female

    Appearance: Though Yoobin stands at 5'5", her build makes her seem smaller. She has a bit of a resting bitch face, and generally has an intimidating look to her. Her hair is cut into a short, messy bob that is dyed a faded magenta hue, and her wardrobe consists of tomboyish clothes, mostly flannels and ripped jeans. Her vision is very poor, so she either wears contacts or round-rim glasses, depending on the day.

    Backstory (Optional): Yoobin is not comfortable with other people knowing about her past, so not many are privy to it in the first place.

    Personality: Yoobin can come off as a bit cynical and sardonic upon first meeting, which frankly isn't much of a surprise. She isn't an intentional jerk by nature, however, and her bluntness is a result of an inability to express her emotions properly. Yoobin is, rather unsurprisingly, incredibly smart and a total bookworm. To those who know her, she is incredibly awkward and her lack of people skills is glaringly obvious. Though it may not seem like it, Yoobin isn't an inherently bad person, and her heart is in the right place - but Yoobin doesn't make an effort to correct those that believe her to be mean-spirited or heartless.

    Oh my gosh I remember the first one!


    Name:
    Wendy Hurane
    Age: 16
    Gender: Female

    Appearance: Wendy stands at a modest 4'11" and has an average build overall, with long and naturally curly brown hair alongside a bright pair of emerald-green eyes and very slightly tanned skin. Outside of her Sky Trainer outfit, her preferred getup consists of a green tank top and short shorts, topped off by a pair of black sunglasses that typically rest in her hair. She does have more suitable clothing for days when the weather isn't picture perfect however, but hopes they won't be needed here.

    Backstory: Although she was born in Fortree City, Wendy has very few recollections of her hometown or region; the family having moved to Cyllage City in Kalos when she was very young. An affinity for the sky followed the child into this new region, ultimately leading her to specialise in Sky Battles after being inspired by her first Pokémon's evolution from Vibrava to Flygon sometime into their journey.
    After a battle between the two trainers in which she lost despite a good start, her new personal instructor Volo Airbon made the outrageous (according to her) suggestion that she take part in the upcoming Kalos Invitational Mk. II, himself having been a participant in the original event when he first journeyed to the region. Though surprised by the idea at first, she soon came around to it and has been training hard for the battles ever since, her eyes set on success.
    I might reveal other little tidbits if they come to me.

    Personality: Bearing a relatively demure and quiet personality, Wendy isn't very likely to be the life or soul of your average party... unless she feels like letting out the wicked sense of humour that surprises those who don't expect it from a silent type. Additionally, she has an observant side and could even be called a challenge seeker; very rarely backing down from an opportunity to prove herself/make her mark. It's her motivation behind taking part in the revived Kalos Invitational.
    Socially, she isn't timid and wouldn't be averse to returning an attempt to engage her in conversations from time to time.

    Figured I should see how the revamp of my idea goes the second time around.

    Name:
    Leon Dacia
    Age: 19
    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Leon is a somewhat unassuming trainer, standing at 5'8 in height. His jade eyes are usually obscured by either his messy black hair or his thin eyeglasses. His skin is somewhat tanned, due to his constant love for travel leading to him spending more time outdoors than most. On most days, he'll wear a faded tan t-shirt that's clearly seen some wear, a green long-sleeved jacket, cream-colored shorts, and a pair of black running shoes. Additionally, he'll usually have his grey laptop bag slung over his shoulder whenever he's not using said device.

    Backstory (Optional):

    Personality:
    Leon tends to be somewhat soft spoken in most situations. He won't be opposed to conversation, but seldom will be the one to start it. Most of the time, he prefers to watch from the sidelines, out of the action but close enough to observe it. Unfortunately, this also leads to him over-analyzing and quickly growing bored, at which point he'll usually pull out his laptop. He will only maintain focus on something so long as it proves to be unpredictable to him. In other words, once he understands something well enough that it can no longer surprise him, he'll become more and more easily distracted. That being said, once something catches his attention enough to get his blood pumping, the rest of the world might as well cease to exist.

    Team
    Pokémon 1 (Species): Mothim
    Nickname (Optional): Chameleos
    Gender: Male

    It's been a long time! Trying to make a comeback!

    Name: Aleksandra "Alex" Chekhov
    Age: 18
    Gender: Female
    Appearance: Alex is 5'4" with a toned and curved figure, and has lightly tanned skin from being outside a lot. She has short brown hair and hazel eyes, and generally wears light-colored shirts with blue jeans and blue running shoes, but she's known to wear skirts on occasion.
    Backstory (Optional): TBR
    Personality: Alex is a bit of an oddball due to her Aspergers' Syndrome; she loves Pokémon above all else but people are a problem area. Unless she finds them really interesting she tries not to interact with them. When she's forced to, she tries her best but usually comes off as awkward and off-putting. She wants to get better at social interactions but it doesn't always show and that depresses her. In battle she's focused and surgical, working as one with her Pokémon to find weaknesses in her opponents and take them down.

    Nickname (Optional)
    Gender: Male
    Ability: Infiltrator
    Moves: Toxic, Venoshock, Aerial Ace, Haze
