BSC- Pomelo and Co by 2beats BSC- Pomelo and Co by 2beats
It's been a while! Ahaha, so my friend convinced a bunch of my colleagues and myself to enter this Pokemon tournament thingy called #bigskycarnival I've never done one before, but it sounds fun~

Name: Pomelo
Age: 12
Hometown: Pastoria City, Sinnoh

Personality:

Pom is a happy, bubbly little thing. She constantly wears a mischievous grin on her face, and cracks cringe-worthy jokes on a regular basis, oblivious to her severely lacking comedic proficiency. The rare times she loses her temper, a swift whack to the perpetrator with her trusty umbrella usually sets her back to a cheerful mood. Pom is very chatty, and frequently starts up amiable conversations with complete strangers. Obviously an unguarded 12 year old approaching random people can cause some problems, and indeed Pom has been mugged, kidnapped and held for ransom no less than 8 times in her short life, and still has not learned her lesson.

Though Pom appears to be a complete airhead, and about as sharp as a pillowcase of marshmallows (and basically is in most cases) she has a natural gift for pokemon battling. As she usually has no patience for longer battles, she specializes in powerful sweepers, and strategizes her battles to be as short as possible so she and her opponent can go out for coffee and cake afterwards (loser buys!). Pom is also a nature lover, and surprisingly a berry expert, having collected, studied, tasted, and memorized every existing kind of berry. Pom detests manufactured status healers, convinced they are full of too many chemicals and additives harmful for pokemon, so she solely uses berries and other natural healing items. Her bag mainly consists of gathered berries, half-eaten poffins, her pokegear, some lint, and not much else.

History:

Recently, Pastoria City issued plans to destroy the Great Marsh and construct a new water park in its place. Pom loved exploring the Great Marsh ever since she was a little girl, collecting berries and battling the wild pokemon with her pet Eevee. Angered by the news, she led a campaign against the construction, mainly by waving her umbrella threateningly at government officials. When that didn't work, Pom forms a plan to raise enough money to buy the Great Marsh and turn it into a protected reserve. She promptly quits school and becomes a full-time pokemon trainer, battling and raising money as much as she can. When word of Big Sky Carnival reaches her, Pom jumps at the chance to win the huge cash prizes to fund her cause.

Pokemon #1:
Name: Ibi
Species: Jolteon
Sex: Male
Ability: Volt Absorb
Nature: Impatient
Hold Item: Magnet
Battle style: A risky special attack sweeper. Ibi's lower defense makes it crucial that he hits first and hits hard, and relies on a bit of luck for his more powerful but less accurate moves.
Athletic stat: Speed
Contest stat: Cool
Other info: Attacks first and asks questions later. Ibi is difficult to deal with, but fiercely loyal to Pom.

Pokemon #2:
Name: Trilo
Species: Snorlax
Sex: Male
Ability: Thick Fat
Nature: Chill
Hold Item: Leftovers
Battle Style: A squishy, impenetrable wall. Trilo can withstand the strongest attacks, special or physical. Though his attack is high, he's a peaceful pokemon and prefers not to fight.
Athletic stat: Power
Contest stat: Cute
Other info: When travelling away from home, Pom likes sleeping on Trilo's tummy at night, though she has to make sure he doesn't accidentally inhale her.

Pokemon #3:
Name: Victoria
Species: Magikarp
Sex: Female
Ability: Swift Swim
Nature: Regal
Hold Item: Mystic Water
Battle Style: A useless placeholder (for now). If both Ibi and Trilo are incapacitated during a battle and need to be healed, Victoria is sent out for a turn.
Athletic stat: Stamina
Contest stat: Cute
Other info: On her way to Big Sky Carnival, Pom was tricked into purchasing a Magikarp from a shady salesman. Figuring she might as well try and evolve the damn thing, she's been leveling it up all along the way. Victoria loathes being treated like a second-class Pokemon, and relishes the day when she finally evolves and delivers retribution to all those who have mocked her.

I adore your art style, dude! I also like the eco-friendly motive going on (and that Jolteon is adorable).

Good luck in Big Sky!

Holy you're alive! I'm kidding I see you every now and then... when I'm not being a dork with my friends at school... yeah.

ANYWAYS! I like how the Jolteon kind of looks like it's trying to say "Are you sure you want him to eat her?"

*checks* Ah... yup! Still alive! hahaha Barely though, what with 4th year film and all :I Can't believe I'm doing this actually lolol Where will I find the time??

But yeah! Pom's more preoccupied with posing for the camera than the well-being of Victoria hahaha

You're doing yours digitally though, right? So you're at least skipping the whole pencil, paper,clean-up, scanning bit. That's a load off of you at least. So maybe like the little pockets of breathing room this ends up being the thing to deflate your brain or something?

Ha ha, She does look like yeah camera's there I'm so pro. Victoria is a bad-ass she can handle him... I'll laugh if in the middle of that she evolves into this insanely pink Gyarados.

:icon2beats:
2beats Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011
Lol I wish! But I think we have to stick to legit colours for the Pokemon...? But a pink Gyarados sounds awesome! *__*

Yeah, it's good that I can skip scanning and processing, but I have a lot of colouring to do too~ I'll probably be enlisting a few helpers *hinthint* :P Tell me if you're free!

You know it makesyou wonder if you dye the colour of the water that pokemon drink would it change thier skin/scale/fur colour.

Ha ha, as long as I'm doing flat's i'm okay. I can't do lighting for shit. *stares at current grades for painting.* I'm pretty much free on Friday Afternoons, and weekends. The school has lovingly reminded me that i have no life the other days of the week XD. I can try and find some friends interested in helping out. Maybe ~oblivious-life since she's met you already.
