Name: Ben 'Three Legs' Algam
Age: 15 (Turned fifteen a day into the silver conference)
Hometown: Lavaridge, Hoenn
Physical Appearance: A tall young man with blue eyes in his mid teens,
his most recogniseable features being his extreemly unruly brown hair
and the mawile attached to his leg. He usually wears a dark t-shirt and
jeans with a carkii overcoat, and worn out, unbranded trainers. He wears
a standard pokeball belt but with only four slots; he doesn't carry
spare pokeballs. He also has a small rucksack in which he carries a few
medical supplies, some odd scraps of metal and his mobile phone.
Current Badges: Knuckle.
Past: When he was 11, he used money his parents had given him to
traveled down to Littleroot town to get a starter pokemon from Professor
Birch and choose a Mudkip that he later nicknamed Swampy, his first
pokemon. Still having some money left from his parents and wanting to be
different, rather than going on to Oldale like most trainers, ben
boarded a boat to Dewford island where he caught his second pokemon, an
Aron. Despite training his two pokemon dilagently, after a week and
three tries ben still could not defeat Brawly, the gym leader of the
town. Realising he needed much more training, he left to travel Hoenn,
to return when he was stronger. After two years traveling Hoenn, he
returned to Dewford and beat Brawly. During his second stay in Dewford,
a mawile attached itself to ben, both psyically to his leg and
emotionally. Since then, ben had a run in with Sapphire and Mimic and
assisted them in the rescue of Bob.
Present: Ben entered the Silver Conference and beat but then befrended
an older female trainer called Alex in the first round, but then lost to
Robert and his hyperactive Charizard in the second. After their match,
Ben asked Alex out on a date which she accepted, and is not at all
phased by the fact she telepathically spoke to him during the final round.
Future: Would like to get all the badges and win the pokemon league
competition, plus defeat any strong trainer who would stretch his
Pokemon: Ben currently carries four pokemon around with him, plus the
mawile attached to his leg.
Blade/Aggron – Lv 45 – Metal Claw, Iron Tail, Protect, Double Edge.
A tiny but hardy Aron was bens first pokemon. After travelling Hoenn,
this pokemon reached its final stage of evolution – Aggron. This
pokemons strength is only matched by its loyalty. Blade will take a blow
for ben or any of his pokemon, though it would have little or no effect
on his battle hardened armour.
Nails/Lairon – Lv 30 – Metal Claw, Iron Tail, Take Down, Mud Slap.
Nails is a younger, more inexperienced steel pokemon. Nails is loyal to
ben, but not quite as much so as Blade. Blade and Nails often work side
by side, as they get along well. His main weakness is that he can be
arrogant at times.
Metrix/Magneton – Lv30 – Thunderbolt, Spark, Lock On, Tri Attack.
Metrix the magneton is a cool headed and good natured pokemon with
thousands of volts in its charged body. Unfortunatly though he has a
short temper towards other pokemon outside of bens squad and doesn't
take kindly to anyone attacking or insulting his trainer. Overall
though, he is a strong pokemon, but is at a low level.
Aeros/Salamance – Lv 60 – Dragon Breath, Dragon Claw, Flamethrower, Ice
Aeros is a quick salamance who is powerful when airbourne. His dragon
claw is very dangerous and could take out most pokemon in a couple of
strikes and he also has a dangerous breath attack. His main weapon
though, despite this, is his intimidating appearance that would frighten
most pokemon off. He is very loyal and even though he looks scary he is
a very friendly pokemon, and if it wasn't for this, ben wouldn't have
caught him because of his high level. He cannot fly long distances.
Pokemon not in use: Swampy/Swampert, Madcow/Camerupt, Capt. Falcon/Hariyama.
Allies: Alex, Robert.
Enemies: GenKnight and most of SHAKKmasters other pokemon.
