Canelli-Hawthorn Ranch, Sinnoh- July 13, 2010- 430 Years Later
It was a slow, quiet day at the ranch. So far, nothing out of the ordinary had happened to the inhabiting Pokémon of the ranch. There were no errands for them to be on; no insane tasks of either battling legendaries, chasing the ever hyper newborn Pokémon (this being a Pokémon Ranch where Pokémon are born and raised), or trying to capture those ever tricky Luvdisc in the ocean; not even a seemingly quiet hike through Eterna Forest only to battle hordes of Ghost types that were after you because they thought you ate their food. For once, things were just slow and quiet too slow and quiet for a certain female Infernape.

Jenna's group quietly snuck through the jungle, hoping not to stir any unwanted attention. Koops, having recovered from his rather painful tumble down a cliff rather quickly thanks to a Max Revive on Jenna's person, was following rather closely to Jadis, much to the Empoleon's discomfort.

Bloody hell. It was the first thing he thought when he saw the bloody and broken house. The boy was about ten, wearing a dark blue short sleeved jacket with a white long sleeved shirt inside, a dark blue cap on his head, dark blue jeans, and red sneakers. His red eyes stared at the broken down house, doubt growing higher each second.
"You ready, Matthew?" Matthew turned to see a black haired man, wearing black and white clothing, next to a black haired woman, wearing black and blue clothing.
"I think so," Matthew said in a British accent, "but I doubt we'll find something about 'him.'"
"Relax, Mattie. Everything will be okay," the black haired said while waving an arm. Then he nudge the woman next to him and chuckled. "Right Pandora?" Then a black glove smacked him square in the face. Pandora put her glove back on, and glared at the man.
"Shut up Stab," she said. "This is Matthew's first assignment, so be easy on him." Matthew sighed and looked back at the house

"It worries me, Lucario," Zoroark said, with the most troubled expression. "Not a single word has our son spoken. Not mother, nor father..."

Role: Member of the Indigo League's Elite Four
Type Specialty: Psychic
In the Elite Four, trainers are challenged by some of the best trainers in the region and are put to the test unlike any other. Sometimes these challenges are against brute force, while others are about tactics and skills outside of direct damage…in the case of Will, the real challenge is dominating him in his mind games. Will is still a relatively new addition to the Indigo League's Elite Four and was hired to replace Lorelei after she left the Elite Four to keep her home island safe from attack. Very little is actually known about Will but his specialty in the Psychic-type has led him down a pathway a bit more than abnormal from others. Will himself is not a Psychic and has very little in common with his Pokémon in most respects, but both he and his team are masters of mind games and will often employ them to confuse opposing Pokémon and trainers al

They might not be as large or imposing as some other legendaries, but if you ever manage to spot one of these shadowy creatures on a dark night, you had best say your prayers and hope that dawn is just on the horizon; otherwise, you'll find out exactly what it means to be stuck in a living nightmare!Darkrai Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Cinnabar Island was once a thriving port town well-known for its tourism and the scientific laboratories that once gave birth to fossil Pokémon as well as some other, more sinister creations…but today, there is almost nothing left of the area. Due to a volcanic eruption beneath the islands, the entire area was effectively destroyed and left for dead, even to the point where the Gym that once stood there was destroyed. This is not to say, however, that the Gym Leader of the Island, Blaine, is gone; in fact, he is still performing his duty willingly within the depths of the otherwise frozen Seafoam Islands.

Black leaned back in the sea of sand, lifting up the brim of his cap to watch as his partner's Samurott was basically drop-kicked by an irritated Krookodile. He sighed, placing a hand on one of his pokeballs, but White saw his subtle action.
"Stay out of this, Black! This is my fight, and I'll win it myself!" she insisted, giving him a glare that would make any mere man cower in terror.
For Black, the intimidation of that glare had worn off fairly quick. He simply shrugged, as if to say, "Have it your way", and continued to observe as White turned back to her enemy trainer and continued on.
When they had set out from Nuvema Town, Black had expected a nice, smooth journey. He would breeze through each gym easily and continue on to the next.

Incredible pain has come
Tear slowly falling

Fear is evident

Mist mingled about
The stench of blood in the air

Her eyebrows squinched together and her mouth became a straight line, was she hurt? or angry? Had we done something wrong?
We peered up at her, whispering among ourselves.
She began to walk away, and so we followed. She turned, and said she was releasing us. We didn't know what this meant. She began to walk away again, and again we followed.
She shouted at us until we cried, and we ran away. We pondered it for a while, and we understood that she didn't want us.

The "Fire" type is unique in its members' ability to create or control fire. Apparently, their cells are protected with a flame-retardant cocktail, while sulfur, phosphorus, and carbon are stored in special organs to produce the flame. These Pokemon tend to be colored with "warm" tones, and since they are virtually fire-proof, can live in incredibly hot conditions (e.g. the inside of a volcano). Fire Pokemon tend to devour metals and minerals straight from the rock, since their cells are unable to properly digest normal food.
"Water"-type Pokemon are generally aquatic or partially so. There is not much of a cellular difference between Water types and Normal types, but they do possess the ability to absorb and release vast quantities of water. Some such Pokemon have the ability to change the weather, generate a wall of concentrated water, and even blast a never-seen plasma form of water.
The "Grass" type is similar in ways to the Bug type, but instead of a primitive mite livi
