HOLY COW A CHAR WITH A DECENTLY SIZED HISTORY
So yeah Boo's moving away from Pokette town. He was just really hard to RP with and ugh i kind of grew to hate him ;;
I'll fix up the written portion of this to be all pretty and stuff later. Anyway, meet Choco!
male altarias seem so scarce on the rp scene...
BIRTHDAY: January 11
NATURE: Bashful-- shy, socially awkward, doesn't draw attention to himself
CHARACTERISTIC: Very finicky-- picky, rather judgemental, perfectionist (he's a gourmet-- and hates slobs!)
CATCHPHRASE: Ta (replaces 'thank you', 'good-bye', and 'um')
JOB: Currently unemployed
[Chocolatier/Candy Maker looking for work (may start up his own shop)]
HOME TOWN: Hearthome City, Sinnoh
HISTORY: Born to a pair of fussy and chronogoically busy Altarias, the little swablu had little interaction with his parents, even from an early age. He was basically raised by his nanny who was really no less strict than his actual parents. They were big names in the Hearthome poffin industry and couldn't afford to spend time on their son-- but he didn't really mind. He knew he was pretty much desitined to inherit his parent's buisness and was quite content to let that happen-- he loved making candy, who wouldn't? It sweetened up people's days, it was widely popular, it was far easier to pass someone some chocolate to get a smile than talk to them.
Choco was very shy. He didn't mind his parents not paying him mind because he didn't want their attention-- nor anyone's, really. Well that was a bit of a lie-- he liked people, and he wanted his parents to like him, but he couldn't help but self-conscious and self-doubting (probably due to all the adults around being very strict and unyielding) which combined with his perfectionism made it difficult to forge friendships. Easier to just give people candy. He was content with being on his own, for the most part-- messing around with ingredients in his parent's kitchen was really quite fun. Often he'd be the one to cook dinner, not his nanny. When it was somebody's birthday he'd make them a cake. A sort-of-friend of his once pointed out that he's do really well if he was ACTUALLY WORKING IN A BAKERY, but Choco didn't bother considering the idea at the time-- he had no need for money.
As he grew older his parent's buisness deflated a bit. With a huge rush of people suddenly losing interest in contests and becoming intrigued by pokemon dances and movies, his parents weren't so busy or so successful anymore. Rather than experiment in his parent's kitchen all day Choco had to pick up a job and earn money to help out. His parents were slightly disappointing both in him and themselves to find that now their son was an adult and almost stranger to them, and the revelation that they'd missed pretty much of all his upbringing was painful-- him being around made them sad and regretful. They wanted to make it up to him. This is probably why they jumped on board with the idea when Choco announced his plan to find a town where he could set up his own sweet shop in, or else where he could work in one-- and he'd write often, he promised! Though at first they were confused by the notion of the whole thing entirely. Choco was planning to send money home but they didn't really need cash THAT badly (it would definitely help their falling business though), but they could see that he was determined to earn something for himself, so encouraged him. They took the liberty to find the best possible place for him to live and work-- and came up with a village called pokette town.
MOVESET: Pluck, Peck, Dragon Claw, Fly (never did spend much time on battleing)
-even though he can seem like he just wants a friend, thats not really the case: some people honestly annoy him A LOT (loud, obnoxious idiots etc, espeacially slobs!) and he's much rather not be anywhere near them, thank ya very much
-main focus in cooking is sweets and treats but he can do some savory stuff as well
-he keeps his long hair tied when he's cooking (and during most of the time that he's not...)
-he usually tucks his ponytail into the back of his shirt since it gets in the way, making it not always visible
-he CAN fly... but not all that well
-very rarely will he go by anything other than Choco but is open to the idea of nicknames
-favorite color is brown (cuz of CHOCOLATE OBVIOUSLY)
-his evolution was sudden and unceremonious, he barely registered it when it happened and still will accidentally call himself a swablu
-if he likes you prepare to get a whole lot of candy
-secretly a hopeless romantic
-He doesn't like scary looking pokemon, as he tends to judge them as scary people and honeslty wants nothing to do with people like that
-REALLY doesn't like thunderstorms
