TRAINER NAME: Panopticon
WEIGHT: 349 lbs.
BIRTHPLACE/PLACE OF RESIDENCE: Saffron City/none
APPEARANCE: Panopticon, whose name means "all-seeing," is an
intimidatingly large, brown half-cybernetic Velociraptor with black
tiger-stripes. His pupils are black vertical slits. He has a pair of
razor-sharp, roughly eight inch-long blades attached to each wrist, a
row of steel spines running along his tail, and a six inch-long,
chrome-plated sickle-claw on each foot. Held tightly to his back is his
heavily armored command module - effectively a large steel box filled
with circuit boards and wiring and with an antenna protruding from it.
His brain is more computerized than organic.
PERSONALITY: Panopticon's mostly cybernetic brain pushes his intellect
far past that of most humans. He is cold and calculating, but not
without a certain sick sense of humor. He is quick to kill anything
that he considers a hindrance, but in the case of his primary enemies,
he prefers use of slow torture to outright murder.
ALLIES: Stevon Schpielbunk.
ENEMIES: Kyle Richter, Jessica Sullivan, Doppler, Gads Trisan, Phoo,
Silly Putty, Minax.
MOST USED POKÉMON:
Inferno (Charizard): Because of his rigorous upbringing alongside
Panopticon, this ivory Charizard is exceedingly violent and utterly
depraved. He has no qualms about killing people or Pokémon. While far
more intelligent than his air of brutality would suggest, Inferno has
very little to say to anyone. He will follow even the most specific of
orders, but he is very easily distracted and can not handle more than
one task at any given time.
Moves: Slash, Fire Blast, Earthquake, Swords Dance.
Proteus (Ditto): In his natural form he is a shiny black Ditto, with
tiny yellow eyes. When he takes on the form of another Pokémon, the
colors he becomes are always the complementary colors of the other
Pokémon - if he copied the form of a blue Seadra, for example, he would
become an orange Seadra. Panopticon finds it frustratingly difficult to
control Proteus, mainly because Proteus's understanding of English
leaves much to be desired. It is rare that this Ditto Transforms into
what Panopticon asks him to.
Regulus (Starmie): This Starmie is rather vain, and it is fiercely
protective of its prismatic core. If an opponent manages to damage its
core, Regulus goes into a frenzied rage and becomes completely
uncontrollable. Regulus moves by using its limited telekinetic
abilities to propel itself through the air. When his enemy is not a
Pokémon, Panopticon occasionally uses Regulus as a shuriken.
Moves: Surf, Psychic, Thunder Wave, Recover.
Serpentor (Steelix): This iron giant was an Onix when Panopticon
obtained him in a trade with a youngster. Serpentor has tremendous
pride in his defensive power and is known to charge headlong into every
potential battle, even when he has no chance of winning. His favorite
trick is to use Explosion when a fight is not going his way.
Moves: Explosion, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Curse.
Shrapnel (Scizor): The bastard daughter of Jessica Sullivan, Shrapnel
has a relentless drive to train and improve herself. This is not,
however, her nature. She wants nothing to do with Panopticon or his mad
quest for power, but she obeys him nonetheless, to spare herself from
his beatings and verbal abuse.
Moves: Slash, Steel Wing, Swords Dance, Agility.
Trifecta (Magneton): Panopticon went through dozens of Magnemite and an
entire case of Hidden Power T.M.s before finding a Magnemite with the
ideal Hidden Power. That Magnemite has since evolved and earned the
name Trifecta. As Panopticon hoped, Trifecta is the quintessential
"mindless automaton." It has no capacity for disobedience or
Moves: Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Hidden Power (Ice), Reflect.
