Character: Sarah Jane Eckert
Author: Time Lady/Lady Timedramon
Hair: Long brown hair (usually worn pulled back into a ponytail).
Eyes: Blue-green eyes.
Build: Very petite
Other: Appears very innocent. Wears glasses. She also has contact
lenses now, but rarely wears them.
Clothing: A Rosetta University sweatshirt or t-shirt and khaki pants or
jeans, white tennis shoes.
Supplies: Carries a new model denim backpack (with divided pockets for
each type of item) with supplies. Uses a Rosetta issue Pokedex,
allowing instant switching of pokemon without the need to go to a
computer. The pokemon in Rosetta roam free on the ranch belonging to
Sarah Jane’s grandparents. A miniature pokeball worn on a chain around
the pokemon’s neck while in Rosetta allows the transfers to take place.
The system was designed by university researchers with the aid of Bill.
Personality: Sweet and caring. The kind of person that's easy to
underestimate due to her innocent appearance. Also very analytical.
Deep down, she still feels a profound sense of loss due to the murder of
her Mr. Mime 5 years ago. She is aware that, in times of extreme anger,
she can cause a lot of damage and pain. Therefore she is very
controlling of her temper. Lately she’s been a bit depressed and moody
due to various factors.
Abilities: Sarah Jane is a psychic. She has a lot of potential, but,
due to her gentle nature, her psychic abilities lean towards empathy
where humans are concerned. If necessary, she can transmit her thoughts
to another person, but reading human minds is difficult for her. She
finds it easier to detect human emotions and respond accordingly. Her
abilities are stronger where Pokemon are concerned. She can easily
converse with Pokemon both telepathically and verbally (she understands
Pokemon of all breeds when they are talking in Pokespeak). Sarah Jane
does have a large, generally untapped source of psychic power within her
that to this point, she has only been able to access in times of extreme
emotional duress (first when her Fearow was murdered, and later when her
Mr. Mime was murdered). In other words, the more stressed/upset/angry
she gets, the more powerful she becomes. But Sarah Jane doesn’t stress
out easily. She has not been able to tap this energy since Shields’
death. One of the reasons might be because of Sarah Jane’s late
training (her powers didn’t surface until she was nearly 12). When she
_has_ used these powers, the result is generally an uncontrolled psychic
shockwave that can be felt by anyone in the surrounding area. With full
training, she has the potential of reaching the same power levels as
Sabrina. However, Sarah Jane really has no interest in that type of
training. To keep Sarah Jane well rounded (and to give her an alternate
form of self-protection to rely on due to Sarah Jane’s previous
experiences using her psychic abilities), her grandparents insisted she
take some fighting training at the dojo next door to Sabrina’s gym.
Currently she is a brown belt. The fighting training has helped her
control and focus her anger, so she is less likely to totally lose
control of her abilities out of anger. When Sarah Jane is angry, this
will often transmit to Pokemon around her (and Pokemon belonging to her
will react, usually becoming angry as well).
Relatives: Lillian and Xavier Eckert (Grandparents), Sabrina (cousin –
Sabrina’s father and Sarah Jane’s mother were brother and sister.
However, Sarah Jane’s mother seemed to be without psychic powers, a
trait which apparently skipped a generation to Sarah Jane) – though
currently Sarah Jane and Sabrina had a falling out over something in the
Objectives: A change of scenery, a new journey, a hunt for her life’s
Allies: Her former friends from the Mount Moon Crew, her grandparents,
Enemies: Nori (who killed her Mr. Mime, among other reasons), Team Rocket.
Note: Sarah Jane’s primary lineup (meaning those pokemon she usually
has with her) are: Nipper, Spunky, Pteryx, Fantasma, Cassandra, and
“the babies” (who are too young to be in a pokeball yet). Though she
switches as necessary.
Kingler (Nipper): waterfall, surf, strength, cut
Nipper is more of a utility pokemon, as he was able to learn 4 different
Nidoqueen (Cuddles): bite, ice beam, blizzard, substitute
Nidoking (Spunky): horn drill, thunder punch, horn attack, ice punch
The same Cuddles and Spunky that Sarah Jane found when they’d been
orphaned. They definitely aren’t babies anymore. Cuddles is now in
semi-retirement, taking care of her own children (listed below). Spunky
still travels with Sarah Jane, whom both think of as their adoptive
mother. Spunky is fiercely protective of Sarah Jane (and still refers
to her as “Sarah-momma”), Pteryx (his adopted sister) and his babies.
He’s very affectionate to those he knows and likes.
Eevee (Lilac): tackle, tail whip
Eevee (Shadow): tackle, tail whip
The result of a tryst between a rather persuasive Flareon in heat and an
unsuspecting, naïve Spunky. The Flareon and her trainer had no interest
in the resulting motherhood and left the babies in the care of Sarah
Jane and Spunky. Spunky is still adjusting to sudden fatherhood. Lilac
and Shadow are too young to be in pokeballs, so they are usually in a
pokebaby carrier toted by either Sarah Jane or Spunky. Lilac’s fur has
a lavender cast to it, while Shadow’s fur is gray.
Aerodactyl (Pteryx): Fly, Bite, Scary Face, Ancient Power
Sarah Jane hatched Pteryx from an egg. Pteryx thinks of Sarah Jane as
her mother (she was the first thing the newly hatched baby saw) and
thinks of Cuddles and Spunky as her nestmates. By Aerodactyl standards,
Pteryx is about half grown (about half the size of a full grown
Aerodactyl). But she is still a fierce fighter and protective of Sarah
Jane and those she considers “family”.
Xatu (Cassandra): wish, psychic, future sight, shadow punch
Cassandra, as a Natu, was sent by her flock to find and return another
Natu from her flock, whom she personally referred to as “the mad one.”
She was found injured by Sarah Jane and her friends and brought to a
Pokemon Center. Cassandra decided to remain with Sarah Jane.
Pidgeot (Hato-kun): fly, hyper beam, double team, agility
Tangela (Medusa): sleep powder, mega drain, solarbeam, growth
Machoke (Stallone): foresight, rock slide, rock smash, cross chop
Tauros (Ferdinand): Stomp, rest, snore, hyperbeam
Ponyta (Starfire): Stomp, Fire Blast, Agility, takedown
Gengar (Fantasma) curse, shadow ball, confuse ray, psychic
Fantasma was Sarah Jane’s mother’s pokemon. After Shields (Sarah Jane’s
Mr. Mime) died, Sarah Jane’s grandparents gave her the Haunter (using a
trading method, allowing Fantasma to evolve).
The following pokemon are less frequently used by Sarah Jane, but still
called on in times of need:
Starmie (Asterik) Recover, confuse ray, psychic, waterfall
Alakazam (Sigfried): recover, seismic toss, future sight, psychic
Hypno (Svengali): psychic, mega punch, hypnosis, dream eater
Dodrio (Sybil): drill peck, tri attack, agility, thief
Clefairy (Twinkle): light screen, minimize, metronome, psychic
Onix (Stonewall): bind, toxic, sandstorm, protect
Gloom (Tama-negi): sleep powder, mega drain, solarbeam, petal dance
Dugtrio (Digger): earthquake, slash, body slam, double team
Arbok (Slither): bite, glare, haze, acid
Cloyster (Pearl): supersonic, clamp, ice beam, protect
Electrode (Cherry Bomb): Screech, mirror coat, thunder, explosion
Dewgong (Snowflake): Headbutt, Ice Beam, Rest, snore
Pinken Nidoking (Regis, Cuddles’ mate) thrash, headbutt, dynamic punch,
Sarah Jane encountered the wild Nidoking while visiting Pinken Island
with her grandparents. Regis became very attached to Cuddles on the
visit (much to Spunky’s annoyance). When Sarah Jane and co. left, Regis
refused to eat and started to pine away for Cuddles. In Saffron (Sarah
Jane had returned to her training at the gym), Cuddles was also in a
state of deep depression. Sarah Jane’s grandfather and Officer Joy of
Pinken, for the sake of two Nidos’ health, received a special
dispensation to allow Regis to leave Pinken, whereupon the Nidoking was
promptly sent to Sarah Jane. Nature took its course, resulting in 3
litters of Nidobabies. Regis and Spunky do not get along too well, which
is why Spunky is with Sarah Jane and Regis is in Rosetta with Cuddles
and their family.
Cuddles and Regis’ family:
3 female nidorans
2 male nidorans
Pokemon Sarah Jane no longer has but owned in the past:
Mr. Mime (Shields): Sarah Jane’s first Pokemon. Killed by Nori’s Dodrio
Fearow (Bombadier): Killed by Minax
Butterfree (Ariel): Freed to mate
Exeggcute (Palmero): Given back to Sabrina.
