Player LJ: (If you have more than one, go ahead and list them; or if you don't have any at all, please say so.)
Messengers and Email: (Any way we can contact you via the internetz.)
Timezone: (Whatever you want to call it, for example, Eastern or GMT -5. Just something so we can calculate time differences, for reference.)

Character Application

Name: (The canon character's name. Please do not include a last name by any means.)
Gender: (Please don't describe their gender, such as “feminine male”. It's quite obvious why this applies.)
Age: (A reasonable estimate of their age. For example, if you were Roark, maybe around 18~21, but make it definite.)

Description: (This isn't as necessary as for an OC. Picture reference is okay, but test your description abilities and try to go for at least a good description of your character.)

Personality: (Once again, a reasonable guesstimate. We know the character's personalities in the game are somewhat to very ambiguous. Try your best to think of a decent personality, or maybe something a little different than people would actually think. For example, if you were Volkner, don't go with the crowds' thoughts thinking he's 'emo'.)

History: (And again, a reasonable guesstimate. Be creative, yet sensible, about your character's history. Remember, history shapes a character's personality. Please try to make it at least 150 words minimum. If it's close, it's OK.)

Pokemon: (Please include the character's actual Pokemon. You may include some extras, if it makes sense. Please keep their parties to the standard 6. If it's an Battle Tower NPC such as Riley or Cheryl, keep it to a minimum of 6 for their party, and no legendaries for any characters by any means. Maybe for Palmer, but that will still be looked over.)

Sample RP: (250 word minimum; please give a short sample of what you are capable of writing involving this character. It doesn't have to be canon, just... something. Also, please don't link to previous RPs/fanfictions/anything else you've written, instead, please write a fresh sample specifically for the RP.)

Please fill out all fields!

Character Application

Name: Maylene
Gender: Female
Age: 12

Description: Maylene has bubble-gum pink, short, almost bobbed hair. Her bangs are very short, and her hair flips out from the sides from being so short. She has a bandage on her nose, possibly from an injury or just to make her look tougher. Her height is 5'2", and she weighs around 121lbs. Her eyes are almost the same color as her hair, but a shade darker. She wears a blue leotard with a black outlining along the straps. She wears pants over her leotard; the pants being white and rather 'poofy'. She also has an extra bandage on her left arm. On her hands, she wears blue and black gloves that are padded around the knuckles. Despite her height and weight, she is a very powerful fighter.

Personality: Maylene likes to stay low-key as much as she can. She appears introverted at first, but that can be highly doubted once you know her well. She likes to remain low-key in her gym and around town because she knows she's very well-known around Veilstone City. People fear her strength, and she can never figure out why. Knowing best to keep people unafraid, she'll usually stay in her gym training with her Pokemon. Even though she's unaware how she became a gym leader, she's proud of being one and takes battling seriously. She also loves to eat, and she loves to eat a lot. Her favorite food is unknown, since she can't choose. She's constantly hungry, probably because she's always training in her gym, and she always has food on the mind.

History: Maylene comes from Veilstone, a city that remains isolated among the others of Sinnoh. She grew up with a loving mother and father. However, her father soon became addicted to gambling at the Veilstone Game Corner; his addiction growing worse everyday. Her mother soon left them because of this. Her mother did offer to Maylene to leave Veilstone, but Maylene refused for some reason. She wanted to say with her father because he gave her her first Pokemon, a Riolu. Ever since then, she thought fighting Pokemon were the best of all Pokemon, and she wanted to be just like them. She also thought she could change dad's ways, reason being she wanted to stay. After her mother left, she became very upset inside, taking her anger out by fighting and roughhousing... and Pokemon battles. Someone noticed her strength of being a trainer, and suggested she should be a gym leader. It's rumored another gym leader offered her the job, though she didn't exactly know who. Even though she denied the request, she soon received a letter in the mail, saying she was to be the gym leader of Veilstone and that the current one had quit. Awestruck, she didn't know what to think. Someone so young like her being a gym leader; she could've been ridiculed. However, she thought of her father, and how she was always trying to get his attention. She sought this as an opportunity to get his attention, and maybe stop him from his gambling addiction. She is now the current gym leader of Veilstone, and holds the title proudly. She is a powerful opponent, and many people would agree.

Pokemon: Meditite(Lvl 27 ♀), Machoke(Lvl 27 ♂), Lucario(Lvl 30 ♂)
Sample RP:

It was early morning. The sun was just starting to rise, and few people were in the streets. Maylene had already started to make her way to her gym, so she could be there earlier than usual for new competitors that had been coming and going to the gym. She had beaten them all, but most of them wanted to come back for rematches. She was very lenient about rematches, for she loved the thrill of battling and wanted to be fair. She wasn't a sore loser; she actually hoped to lose so the competitors and trainers who battled her to win her badge, the Cobble Badge. As much as she liked winning and as much as she trained everyday, she wanted to be fair with the Sinnoh league rules.

On her way to her gym, she decided to stop by the Veilstone Game corner to see if it had opened yet, or especially, if her father was there. She had been visiting her father everyday, telling the stories of battles she had daily. As much as he seemed so distracted by gambling, he seemed interested in her stories. Maybe he was proud. She could never tell, but she tried and tried everyday to get his attention.

Today, she wanted to try again. Stopping by the game corner, she could see him waiting there for the game corner to open. She wanted to wave and yell hello, but she thought he probably wouldn't notice her. Not wanting to give up her continuous tries to ease his gambling addiction, she decided to anyway.

“Hey, dad!” she yelled to him, waving her hand, trying to get his attention. She was down at the streets while the game corner was above on the rocky short cliffs of Veilstone. He didn't seem to notice her. She didn't yell too loud the first time, her thinking that maybe she should get closer, yell louder, and try again.

“Hey, DAD!” she yelled again. This time, she was only a steps from the stairs that were on the rocky cliff where the game corner was. To her surprise, he actually turned around and kept looking at her. She was shocked. He actually noticed. Was it because he wasn't gambling?, she thought. Maybe that's why. Not like he'll say anything, though.

“Hey there, Maylene! You on you way to your gym?!” he yelled back, waving. This surprised Maylene even more. She was speechless. He'd actually been listening to her stories about her gym and battling. Was this too good to be true?

“Well?! Are ya, Maylene?! Or are ya gonna stay here with me?!” he still yelled back, somewhat laughing heartily.

Maylene shook her head to get back into reality. “Uhh...I'm on my way to my gym! Good luck with your gambling!” she answer, beginning to walk away, waving.

“Good luck with your battles today! And tell me about them when you're done!” he added, turning back around to face the game corner's door.

Maylene's face was bright, and she had a huge grin on her face. Maybe it was just a today thing he was going to do that; she didn't know. But she felt happier than usual. She was glad that her father finally noticed her.

“Today's going to be a good day!” she exclaimed to herself outloud.
