Perkle the Torkoal Empty
PostSubject: Perkle the Torkoal   Perkle the Torkoal EmptyTue Jun 07, 2016 4:00 pm

» Name: Peregrine "Perkle" Tamato Torkoal
» Sex: male
» Gender: male
» Species: Torkoal -#324 - the Coal pokemon
» Affiliation: Wanderer

» Level: 5
» Energy: 17+5=22
» Ability: White Smoke (prevents all status reductions)
» Moves:
-Heat Wave
-Shell Smash
-Skull Bash

» Natural Feats:
-Campfire - A Torkoal can use her shell and inner heat like a permanent campfire. It gives off smoke, retains warmth, and provides light. A Torkoal can control the properties of her fire, and can use it to provide illumination, send smoke signals, cook food or brew drink, etc. Although cooking requires skill, all Torkoal can use their innate heat to convert edible food into Burnt Food. Yum. (see below for recipes)

» Personality:
He carries a small kettle on his back, brewing tea and other hot beverages on his back as he goes.  
Perkle is a calm and level-headed nomad, slowly wandering from place to place with a small kettle on his back. Usually, he goes about his life with an aura of sang-froid, providing wise support, and ironically keeping a cool head in the most heated of circumstances. However, he is also intensely curious about everything, and is drawn to strange and exotic objects. He has a touch of wanderlust, and explores as much to discover new items and places as he does to help Pokemon in need. However, at heart, he is still a child, oblivious to many of the world's problems and dangers, and this ignorance often clashes with his insatiable curiosity. Many a peaceful morning has been suddenly disrupted by Perkle's pensive pondering: "I wonder if this tastes good..." Or "How high is that blue mountain over there?" Or "Do Diglett really have feet?"

» Likes: Exploring strange new places, Brewing, Tamato juice, roasting chestos on his open fire, honey, and Flying Falling with style.
» Dislikes: Oceans, wasted effort, angry Digglets, and Beedrill.

» History: Perkle's mother had the greatest impact on his life. She was a very emotional Torkoal, nicknamed "Pele, the volcaness of despair", for her severe and emotionally wrought firestorms. He has never met his father, who was described by his mother as "A very silly and carefree Bidoof, whose most intelligent solution to a problem was ramming it with his face." His mother used to tell him stories of the stupidity of his father, and those stories resonated with Perkle, and taught him to enjoy the simpler things in life as he grew up. As soon as he could, he set out to see the world. He briefly met his dad's father, a nomadic wartortle, who tried to teach him self-discipline, which made little impression to the wide-eyed hatchling.

--The tale of the mountain --
One day, as Perkle was meandering beside a river, he stopped to look admire the beautiful landscape. In the distance, he saw an amazing mountain, looming high above the others. It was colored with a hazy blue, with a top glinted white. It was so beautiful, and this got Perkle wondering: "I wonder how high that mountain is?" After all, it was the highest place around, and a measurement of it would help him gauge long distances better...

The journey was long and arduous. Perkle was subjected to frigid rain and freezing hail for three weeks. But he persevered, and when at last he reached the top of that icy mountain, he smiled to himself, and whispered, "40 million steps high". His question answered, his thoughts naturally turned subject of getting down. As he looked around, he saw a group of Geodude rolling around much further down. They were bouncing and rolling, and this got Perkle wondering: "I wonder if I could roll down?" After all, Protect created an impenetrable sphere, and there was plenty of snow to cushion his fall on the south side...

» Other - Recipe: Perkle has made some effort to master the art of brewing beverages. The following are simple recipes made up to add some flavor to Perkle's character interaction. They are not tested.
-Burnt food - Requires any item that could be considered edible, plus 5 minutes. Functions like regular grimy food, filling the belly and afflicting the consumer with a random status condition.
-Lavaridge cookies - Requires two different berries, 2 seeds, and 30 minutes => restores all status conditions. Serves 4.
-Herbal tea - Requires 2 berries or gummies or any kind, 15 minutes, and a mug => Restores 30 hp, and increases Sp. Def.
-Coffee - Requires 1 Chesto berry, 20 minutes, and a mug => Sharply increases speed, and prevents sleeplessness for several turns. 10% chance of afflicting the consumer with either torment, or taunt.

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

1.) NAME

Why is "Torkoal" in the character's name?  If you actually want Torkoal to be a part of his name, that's fine, but I want to check and make sure that's what you intended.


We use the most recent move-lists, so please use Torkoal's OR/AS moves.  Also, list the way in which the character learned each move (egg, level, etc).


It is never stated by any reputable source that torkoal can use their shells like fire-pits, nor that they can naturally do any of the things you listed due to the heat.  It makes sense, so feel free to do it, but that does not make it a natural feat.  Natural feats are things a species as a whole is known to do (usually stated in Pokedex entries) or descriptions of abilities.  Stick to giving descriptions of things the Pokedex says torkoal can do, and add an explanation for how you plan to use your chosen ability.

Also, you use the word "she" in the description of the feat, yet your character is a male and identifies as such.  Regardless of intention, that is awkward and needlessly confusing, so please change it.


Carrying a kettle on his back and brewing beverages is not a proper part of the personality.  That would belong in the "other" section.  While you're at that, try to add a bit more onto the personality in the form of negative traits.  He currently seems rather one-dimensional.  The only thing you have for a negative trait is that he is childish, so if that's all you want, elaborate on it.


Add descriptions for each like and dislike.  A short sentence for each will do.  It's kind of important to know what in the world he has against diglett and beedrill in specific.


This would be more appropriate for a shop application than a character's bio.  If you want to keep this on the character's bio, you'll have to talk to an admin, and I can't guarantee it'll get approved by them.

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.
