In addition, as of reading about specific items to be allowed (IE, your bag can't have everything
), I've edited what is in content to prevent from being accidentally eliminated.
My application for the
Took a while to complete, and I feel satisfiedName:
20 now, going to be 21 mid-April...Occupation:
: Celadon City in KantoFavorite Pokémon Types
: Dragonesque and furry Pokémon.
Logan started his journey the moment he was old enough, thus having several years of experience. He can name every discovered pokémon by heart, their strengths and abilities as if Pokémon dictionaries were his friend. He's a very logic based trainer, trying to maximize strategy and having a habit of balancing things as much as possible (half his clothes are dark, half light, three large dragon-like pokémon, three small furry quadrupeds, etc.).
Most of the pokémon he catches ends up being girls, or at least to the extent he only keeps female pokémon on his team. The reason for this is his main pokémon are female, and most male pokémon he kept on his team tried to take advantage of their sweet nature. It's more his attachment to them that he keeps an all female team: he thinks of them almost like his daughters, most of them having been raised since almost an infant. Male pokémon he catches are never as nice, or obedient.
One of Logan's key attributes is his desire to be kind to others and receive kindness in return. He's always up to trying to help a fellow trainer or pokémon in need, and he always puts the health of his team first before himself. Unfortunately, he does not tolerate rudeness and tends to settle his differences with Pokémon rather than fists. He will not, however, let his pokémon battle to the point of total exhaustion or edge of fainting, he'll return them if not stop the other pokémon himself before letting things go too far.
A few bits I must add to my Accessories and Pokémon:Accessories:
1. Cross Cap:
Fused with Pokéball and Pokégear/dex technology, this hat stores all my items not listed. This includes, but is not limited to, all items necessary for hygiene, alternate outfits (including multiple items of the same type), freshly made food for each Pokémon (cooked with own recipes), potions and other aid to take care of his team.
The visor has a camera that activates when aimed at a pokémon, producing a hallow screen at the brim of the visor (much like seeing through spy glasses). This acts as the Pokédex.
In addition, Pokégear applications are programmed into the hat, and can even extend in use to the next item usually stored within:
2. Touch Watch:
This touch-screen item syncs with the hat and applications, that way can show others and don't have to move his finger in front of him like an idiot for air-touch function built in hat as well. Other applications can be downloaded similar to how a Pokétch would work.
Primarily used to carry small pokémon, eggs, or other living things that shouldn't be transported into an item storage inside the hat. A screen allows pokémon hiding inside to pear out.
4. Ambun (Amber minun) plushi:
Never leave on a journey without it. Amber has the opposite, Logle (Logan plusle). Good luck charm for sure.
5. Pokéball belts:
Two belts of his own design. He uses these to carry his Pokémon in their balls in style.
6. Jade Cross necklace: An item he acquired upon first meeting with Amber.
7. Savior Ball:
An empty ball once containing the first pokémon Logan had as a partner, a Mew by the name of Sparkles. Clearly, she isn't on his journey at the moment, nor will she make any appearance in the Battle Frontier (legendaires are not allowed).Item Specifics
In accordance with the response of "black hole bags," bags that virtually contain everything, I've decided to elaborate on my Hat's use as a bag. First, while not an actual item in the game, I've used my preference of not carrying a bag that the hat functions the same as a backpack that can virtually hold everything that is needed. So, it's pokéball technology (if one pokéball can hold something as large as a Wailmer, then it can hold the items I need). Further, I will list the exact items I have that will not be edited for the remainder of the contest, unless specificially stated otherwise. As well, the six hold items listed above will be the only ones my pokémon hold:Items
Max Repel: 7
Escape Rope: 1
Gold Nuggets: 3 (in case don't have cash)

Poffin Case: 2 Sweet poffins, 1 mild poffin (I need to cook more...)
Fashion Case: Assorted bows, hah hah
Coin Case: 200 coins, for gambling at various casinosGear
First, the hat has the equivalent of technology of the Pokédex, Pokégear, and, with the use of the touch screen watch attachment, can use all Pokétch functions. It also functions with the same limits as a touch-screen laptop computer.Badges
Since my trainer is twenty, and thus has ten years of trainer experience, I've decided he has all the badges from available leagues. Specifics follow:
Indigo League badges 1-8, Orange League: 1-4, Johto 1-8, Hoenn 1-8, Sinnoh League 1-8, Frontier Brain Gold symbols 1-7Ribbons
After getting bored from winning all the badges and participating in the leagues, got ribbons too. Unfortunately, I thought my pokémon having ribbons all over them would make battling hard, so they are stored at home. Unless the Frontier League decides I can get them, I won't.Pokémon
Nova is the first pokémon Logan captured in the wild. Though, it couldn't really be called capture so much as she had lost her family against a group of thieves and Logan saved her. She decided to stay with him.
Her scales, as can be seen, are white, as she is a luster pokémon (aka "shiny", alternately colored, etc.). Her pool of attacks for this tournament do not reflect her true ability, that of ice based attacks (that just wouldn't be fair, now would it?). However, despite her fire attacks having heat, her flames have the illusion of the blue flames from a will-o-wisp.
Abiding by the rules of this contest, her attacks are that of any other charizard. Her item, an expert belt, helps boost her super effective hits. It's a size too small however, taking place on her tail instead.Nightlight:
Nightlight is a Pikachu-colored Raichu, interestingly given to him by a friend as a Pichu. Logan was somewhat sad when his Pichu evolved into a pikachu, losing the uniqueness of being a Pikachu-colored Pichu, he was more than thrilled to discover her colors took over the normal Raichu template.
That is, her pikachu template stayed the same through all evolutions.
Other than glowing in the dark (hence, why Logan called her Nightlight, the night he discovered this helping him through a dark tunnel with a dead flashlight), this Nightlight has a uniqueness to her outside of her coloring. She's very curious and determined to find out whatever she feels she must know. She loves fruits, mostly strawberries and bananas, with the occasional Oran berry, and is actually very affectionate and protective of her trainer.
Her item of choice is a shell bell, not just because she enjoys that oh-so nice healing effect when she attacks others, but she loves
the sound it emits, often getting out of hand shaking her head till she is dizzy.Hydra:
Hydra is a yellow Gyarados, known in the rare group of these alternately colored Pokémon. Originally, when Logan found her, she was a Magikarp that had fallen into blue dye at a festival in Johto, having jumped out of its tank into a carny's dye-bucket. Interestingly enough, when Logan managed to get the dye off of her, he found her scales actually were
blue. And since red karps turn into blue, and yellow into red, it was only natural that Logan found her to turn yellow when she evolved.
Granted, when he had first volunteered to clean off it's scales (feeling bad for the woman dying her dress as he had happened to be walking by), it was to help, but the owner of the Magikarp catching game had headed off before he could return it. So, he kept it.
Unlike other Gyarados, Hydra has a unique sense of apathy and understanding. She also understands that she is somewhat of a scary pokémon, and because of it, she prefers to keep her mouth closed. Fortunately for Logan, because he brings her out in public so much, thieves have lost interest in capturing her (since, if a yellow
gyarados happened to appear somewhere else, having won in a few tournaments with it and gained a level of prominence, they would be found out too quickly).
Her item of choice is a Life Orb, found at the bottom of the sea next to the Battle Frontier in Sinnoh. Despite it taking away her energy for each attack, she takes satisfaction from the extra power it helps her deliver.Meteora:
Meteora was once a Trapinch Logan had found in a Ariados infested forest in Johto. He had found it attempting to climb an Ariados web, ending up falling on the ground after continuous efforts. Seeing another Ariados shaking its head from the middle of the massive web, he had to assume it was his father (since females give birth to same species), and that perhaps the mother was elsewhere.
After witnessing a particularly hard fall, the trainer felt sorry for it and used some of his dwindling provisions to patch up a few minor cuts and bruises. He was interested that the pokémon hadn't evaded him upon approaching it.
After he left the forest, the Trapinch followed him for a few cities, and having helped him in a safari, he decided to capture it (seeing as it followed him that far anyway).
Meteora got her name from her natural use of meteor like attacks, that is climbing high up and diving down on other pokémon for extra momentum. When she evolved into Vibrava and again into Flygon, Logan was fascinated that she had kept her father's colors, the Ariados he had suspected trying to teach it to climb a web.
Her item of choice is a razor claw, helping with her critical attacks using her meteor style attack tactics.Metaform:
Metaform is a Smeargle Logan bred from one of his Typhlosion and Amber's Smeargle she had lent him in Sinnoh. The Smeargle interestingly didn't grow the beret-like hair style other Smeargles seemed to inherit. Naturally, he decided to buy her a black beret to match his hat.
On a bet with a friend, he was able to get her to sketch Transform, despite others insisting the move couldn't be copied since when a Ditto transforms, it no longer "has" the attack anymore, since it becomes a new Pokémon. He managed to get around this by having her copy a Ditto that transformed into another Ditto.
Her favorite move combination is to put her foes asleep, thinking of a Nasty Plot before turning into them for more power. To make sure she gets them asleep before they touch her, she uses her Quick Claw to get ahead of her opponent. She prefers to work at her own tempo.Hally:
Hally was an eevee when he first found her on his return to his home city of Celadon. She apparently had been born with eyes that could not properly dilate, making her hyper
sensitive to light to the point no doctor could operate on her (since they'd need light to see her eyes). She had hidden in a sewer after several trainers captured and released her, the light of day causing her constant pain without the relieve of going blind.
After hearing her story before, when Logan discovered her mournful cry, he and Nightlight went down the Celadon sewers to find her. She was in rough shape when he found her, skinny to the bone from being unable to properly hunt (probably having to survive on what little edible waste came down the... yuck...). he managed to wrap her eyes with a thick clothe to prevent any form of light from irritating her and nursed her back to health.
Luckily, he had found that she could navigate using a lower whimper she became accustomed to from light hurting her eyes and her long ears. Having an idea, he managed to encourage her to train during the day, eventually getting her to evolve into an Espeon.
Through intense training, he was able to teach her to see through other
people's eyes, including other pokémon's. In that sense, she was able to see herself, and navigate from either her trainer's eyes or her opponents (depending on if they could block her telepathy or not).
She has White Herbs on her tail to prevent her from getting any status conditions (the Burn condition having the potential to burn her eye cloth off), and with her ability to synchronize, she can get her opponent to have the status conditions instead.Team General Info
Luckily for Logan, his team gets along extremely well. His other five pokémon don't mind Hally's using their eyes to see around her, and they have helped her through tough times even if she is a little closed up do to her experiences as an eevee. Hally is a sweetheart though, as are Logan's other pokémon. Nova loves to help Logan cook, using her heat to cook the food and freezing abilities for dessert and other cooling needs.
Hydra enjoys being in the water, as it is natural for a water pokémon, and respects Logan's desire not to get wet. Metaform likes to draw with Logan sometimes, but also helps the team spar by using Transform. She's happy Logan keeps her on the team, often stating how he's happy he has a pokémon that has an original form that is furry and cuddly instead of like jello as far as a mimic pokémon goes.
These six pokémon are like family to the trainer. Though his other pokémon he keeps on a ranch with a friend kind enough to let them wander about, his could never have bonded closer to the six pokémon that now assist him on his journey.
And here's my Amber's application:
