Name: John Screibb
Author: Saint Paul (firstname.lastname@example.org)
ht: About six feet or so
wt: 195 lbs.
Description/History: A tall (more or less) lanky kid with a shy
demeanor, he could be imposing, if he actually tried.
John doesn't say a whole lot, he only really talks when there's a point to it.
He's been a student under Chuck in the Cianwood gym
since he was old enough to start training pokemon, and as such he's
trained in several fighting styles, he is rather hesitant to use them
however. He was more than ready to start his journey to become a
league champion, but in order to do so he had to beat Chuck, it took him nine
years (almost to the day) to do that but thanks to the evolution of
Savage, he was able to accomplish this, earning him a Storm badge, a
Blackbelt for Savage, and an end to his apprenticeship under Chuck.
Because he's spent so much time in Cianwood and in the Gym itself,
John has found himself (much to his own chagrin) to be fairly ignorant
when it comes to the outside world, especially when it comes to the
non-physical world i.e people with Psychic abilities. He knows next to
nothing about Hoenn and it's native pokemon, and the only type of
pokemon that John really knows how to raise are fighting types.
Clothing: a pair of comfortable blue jeans and a black polo tee shirt.
a pair of red and black fingerless gloves and wrist guards. His rather
shaggy hair is kept out his eyes by the bandanna Chuck gave him when
He wears his storm badge on the back of his right hand glove behind
the knuckle of his index finger.
Savage: (in Pokeball)
Species: Primeape (male)
Item: Black Belt
Ability: Vital Spirit
Moves: Focus Energy, Submission, Cross Chop, Reversal, Rage, Rock
Given to John when he first joined Chuck's gym, it's actually pretty
mellow for the most part, until it gets into a battle situation, then
it fights like a raging tornado.
Tidal (in the MacGuyver Ball or M-Ball)
Species: Poliwhirl (male)
Ability: Water Absorb
Moves: Water Gun, Belly Drum, Double Slap, Bubble
John caught Tidal aboard the S.S. Tidal, so he decided to name him
after it. He's a headstrong fighter who never gives up the battle. He
has a few anger issues, which result in him wanting to attak John or
whoever is nearest him whenever Tidal is let out of his pokeball. John
hopes to one day help Tidal with his anger.
Species: Torchic (female)
Moves: Ember, Rock Slide, Scratch, Growl
Narya was given to him by Prof. Birch. He's not sure why Birch gave
her to him, but he figures having a fire type on his team can't hurt.
Mission: Before he left the Cianwood Gym Chuck told him about a
strange pokemon in Hoenn that has both Psychic and Fighting
attributes. John is interested in seeing how these two seemingly
opposite types mesh and wants to learn to train the kind of pokemon
that can seemlessly blend both body and mind.
Allies: Chuck and the rest of the Gym trainers there
Badges: Storm Badge, Mineral Badge
