PostSubject: Goro the Croagunk   Wed May 11, 2016 4:29 am


"I know how ta fight. How ta hurt. I'm lookin' fer the why part of it, now."

» NAME: Goro
» SEX: Male
» GENDER: Male
» SPECIES: #453, The Toxic Mouth Pokémon, Croagunk
» AFFILIATION: Ex-mercenary, now wanderer, easily influenced


» LEVEL: 5
» ENERGY: 16 (11 B.E, plus 5)
» ABILITY: Poison Touch

» MOVES:

- Drain Punch (Egg) | Fighting | phys. attack
- Astonish (lvl. 1) | Ghost | phys. attack
- Mud-Slap (lvl. 3) | Ground | spec. attack
- Empty move slot

» NATURAL FEATS:

- Goro's cheek pouches and fingers contain a poison. Goro can spray poison from his fingers.
- Goro's cheek pouches can be inflated to create an unnerving croaking sound. It's used for warning and intimidating other Pokémon.
- Every time this Pokémon makes contact with its target (with a move) there is a chance the target will become poisoned (Poison Touch ability).

» PERSONALITY: Generally downcast, quiet and cynical, Goro is never the loudest Pokémon around.  Weighed down by his own sense of self-worth and the mission he gave himself, he has been called gloomy more than once. He prefers inaction to action, and boredom to excitement. His idea of a perfect day is a day spent relaxing and enjoying the luxuries of life: a quiet, solitary place, some quality food, undisturbed rest, and horrid weather. Around other Pokémon, he is most wary and nervous, due to a severe lack of friends and socialization.

Due to his simple and otherwise barbaric history, Goro is lacking a large amount of basic skills and knowledge. He cannot read or write, is unable to count numbers, he cannot measure time, distance, etc. He also doesn't know when his birthday is, and he does not know how old he is. Secretly, he is very self-conscious about this, and privately regards himself as dumb, and good only for fighting. But, despite having absolutely no form of academic education and actually thinking of himself as stupid, Goro isn't dumb. Stunted, rather.

» LIKES:

Being lazy: At first glance, Goro seems quite serious, so it may come as a surprise that he quite enjoys being idle. As someone who used to work hard and bloody, on command, he's come to appreciate the novelty of being able to just... be. Laze about and enjoy the simpler things.

Solitude: Goro is most at ease when he's by himself, surrounded by no other Pokémon. A history full of conflict and expectations has made him nervous around others, not to mention quick to throw a punch. For this reason, and for the simple reason that he is an introvert, he chooses to isolate himself whenever possible, and quite enjoys the tranquility of it all.

Fighting other Pokémon: In contrast to his lax preferences, if there's one thing that Goro truly understands and appreciates, it is in fact violence: He definitely enjoys fighting other Pokémon, either weak or strong. The thrill of the fight is addicting, after all. Occasionally he'll even go looking for a scrap. Who doesn't enjoy testing their limits and feeling powerful?

Charity, or charitable Pokémon: As someone who had parents that were undervalued in their line of work, Goro can appreciate the gesture of kindness. Granted, he himself usually won't take the help as a point of pride, but he has a soft spot for people that go out of their way to be nice to others.

» DISLIKES:

Particularly dry or spicy foods: What's the point of snacking on a berry if there's no juice? And as for spicy foods, he finds them wholly intolerable. Get him something soft and cool to eat, or something chilling to drink, thank you.

Psychic-type Pokémon: For no other reason than that Goro knows first-hand his species has a particularly devastating weakness to psychic attacks. He's mature enough to realize that he's being immature to dislike an entire type of Pokémon, but darn it, it only takes one round of Confusion to send most Croagunks reeling. If he meets one, he'll make a point to avoid them.

Intense sunlight, or otherwise messy climates: Being well-traveled has Goro accustomed to holding his tongue about going places that don't agree with his preferences, but you'll never see him go such places in his free time. He takes it upon himself to actively stay away from jobs that take him to deserts or snowy mountains.

» HISTORY: Goro was born to parents employed by a non-reputable mercenary company. Ergo, during his early years, he was quite accustomed to travelling far and wide, and battling other Pokémon. When his parents were contracted to a job, Goro went with, and was sometimes treated to the sight of his parents playing bodyguards, enforcers, rescuers, and customarily beating the snot out of other Pokémon. Sometimes, they fought for good Pokémon. Sometimes, they fought the good Pokémon.

If there was one thing that was constant during his childhood, it was that both mother and father agreed that a weak child was a useless child. His parents decided he would learn their trade. As soon as he understood what his mother and father did, he was training, learning, and helping on the jobs. Never on the front line, but always watching. Occasionally picking off weak targets, or staying with clients while his parents went off to do the real work.

For some time, this was the life Goro lived. Travel, watch, train and learn, eat and sleep. Part of him felt unsatisfied with taking jobs for such a simple reason as survival, and another felt guilty for accepting job parameters without any moral code. Goro disliked the idea of spending the rest of his life like this, but would he really be good for anything else? All he knew was that while he disliked what he and his parents did, they didn't even do it well. They worked for too little, did too much, and he wasn't sure if any of his family was happy. As soon as he worked up the courage and strength, and as soon as his parents were contracted to a job close to a few larger communities, he packed a modest bag and left them in the middle of the night. A part of him is deathly afraid of encountering them ever again, due to his conflicting feelings.

He may be good for only violence, but maybe he could find... something, or someone, who has a better use for it than him. Ever since, Goro has wandered, looking for a cause that is literally worth fighting for.

» OTHER: Carries a modest bindle that can hold only five items.

Sorry, your Character Bio cannot be approved due to the following reasons:

1.) NATURAL FEATS

As far as I can tell, it isn't stated that the poison in Croagunk's fingers comes from its pouches.  And as for the croaking sound, while frogs and toads can hiss, that isn't really a "croak" and thus probably isn't what the Pokédex entries were referring to.  If you want to have Goro hiss, that's fine, but please remove that part from the croaking feat to avoid confusion.

2.) OP MERCENARY

You've made it a significant point of this character that he is an ex-mercenary, which is fine.  I just want to make sure you will handle it well.  While he can like fighting and even be a trained fighter, please do keep in mind that he is unevolved and low-leveled, which means he's still relatively weak.  You seem to be pushing for him being capable of keeping up with experienced and - presumably - strong mercenaries, which seems a bit like a special snowflake, not to mention godmodding.  You even stated that he was "undervalued" in his line of work, which implies he is particularly good at it.  Just tone this down a bit.  Remember that this is supposed to be the start of your character; if you want him to be some godly warrior, you have to work your way up to that. My suggestions would be to say that he went after relatively weak targets, or that he mostly played a backup role for his parents.



If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to message any of the Secretaries. May it be through the Chatbox or through Private Messaging, we will tend to your concerns as soon as we can. Please fix your bio accordingly so that we may be able to approve it. Once you have completed your edits, either bump this thread or message us.
