Out of tragedy, legends are born
But none seem to mention the struggle
While weaving the heroic tale.
They only talk ballads,
Of monsters slain, and battles won,
But none remember the sacrifices,
They only assume a hero has it all.

Moniker: The Girl Who Knows the Hearts of Dragons
Role: Champion of the Unova League
Type Specialty: Dragon
While many trainers manage to prove to be among the best of the best after years of training and experience, few are able to master the many skills available to a trainer at a young age; one of these individuals happens to be Iris, a girl who is more than a bit amazing as she currently holds the record of being the youngest trainer ever to be crowned a true Champion in the modern era. It is unknown exactly where Iris actually hails from, but it is certain that she is not a native of Unova region; anything regarding her past is kept mostly a secret, though there is enough to construct a broad history. Iris likely arrived in the Unova region when she was quite young and instantly became enthralled in the Dragon-type; unlike most of the girls her age, however, Iris demonstrated fairly advanced skills for someone in her age group and proved to be s

Chapter 1: "The Bird with the Artificial Wing"
Six and a half days. According to Vincent's logic and late night study session, that's how much time Veruka had left- six and a half days until Leopold and the rest of the crew were executed. While it seemed like plenty of time to many people, not many people had loved one's lives at stake. Veruka honestly hoped it would public- it would be easier for them to access and prevent if it was public. However, the more the Infernape thought of possible plans as she sailed through the skies, the more flaws she found for each one, and a common flaw was her ship.
Veruka realized just how stupid it would be to even attempt nearing Valuan Airspace with the blue Jolly Roger plastered on her sail. If she and Vincent weren't shot down on sight, security would be all over them in an instant- if the Valuans didn't throw them into

Three hours of training, the distribution of thirty Burn Heals to wayward trainers, and stopping three stupid teenagers from getting too close to the mouth of the volcano later, they were all beat. But such was the senior man's job on Cinnabar; he was much more than a gym leader. He took care of the island and its people even the idiotic tourists who liked volcanoes despite knowing nothing about them. At least, though, he could always take comfort in the fact that his loyal team of Pokémon would always be smarter than the brass teenagers who strive for his Volcanobadge.
It was mid-afternoon now, warmer in the sun but cool in the shade of the trees. The gym leader and his team lounged in a grassy clearing, a surprisingly flat space near the base of the mountain. Blaine rested his back against his Rapidash and looked over at his companions. Not far away, his Arcanine, young and arrogant but loyal to the end, snored loudly. A G

Listen closely, and you may hear
The sound of sacred fire.
Its ancestry flickers in a thousand
Colors, all within the hearts of unborn heroes.
Somewhere deep inside legend,
A fringed master slumbers.
Its breath sequesters beneath its beak
As it dreams in molten gold.
Six score, it has lain in wait
For its kaleidoscopic guardian.
A spirit akin to its veined own,
In suit and solemn as he.
The skies grow dapper without
The grace of its marbled wings
And the elegance of the feathers
That heal the lame and the ungainly.
Its dogs look toward the heavens,
Listening for its sacred fire.
The hours and the days atrophy
And crumble to the sound of empty bells.
But suddenly!the rainbows in its eyes
Spring to violent verve as this
Legendary bird awakens.
The herohe has come today.
Six score, it has lain in wait to rain
Its sacred fire from the clouds again.
In the midst of the defiant mortal soul
That stands before it, kaleidoscopic once more.
Its calls make the sun turn to ash

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.

Skarmory ReportSkarmory (the Armor Bird Pokémon) is a rare Steel/Flying-type Pokémon found among mountainous terrain within the Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos regions as well as Sevault Canyon of the Sevii Islands. Vicious to the extreme and dangerous to approach without heat or electricity, Skarmory are violent birds that take great pleasure in tearing apart lesser creatures with their hard beaks and razor-sharp wings. They might not bring much to the table in terms of being Flying-types, but as one of the few Pokémon able to utilize the devastating Steel Wing attack naturally, it goes without saying that any physical brawl with one of these birds is guaranteed to be one that you'll need more than a few stitches to fix!Skarmory Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Fuchsia City was often honored years ago as the home of the famous Kanto Safari Zone, but legal accusations against the owner for not expanding the Safari Zone despite the money that it was earning, as well as decreasing tourism, effectively led it to shut down, leaving little left for trainers to even care about. Even so, the Fuchsia City Gym has always remained the home of one particular family of trainers that to this day practice the same methods ninjas used to train Pokémon and understand the natural world for centuries. Koga was once the Gym Leader of Fuchsia City and served well in in his position, but unlike most other Gym Leaders, he showed a knack for defensive and tactical battling unlike any other, in turn eventually leading to his promotion to t

Type Specialty: Dragon
The Elite Four, regardless of what region they come from, are recognized as some of the most powerful trainers in the world and are more often than not the trainers that most fear even outside the confines of battle; no truer does this statement ring than in regards to the most powerful member of the Hoenn League's Elite Four, Drake. Drake started his days as a trainer while he was working in the marines within the late 1970's; from there, he learned much not just about fighting but about sailing and using the ship to its fullest potential even in the wake of a terrible storm. Eventually, Drake became the captain of his own crew, which now sails across the world to trade with others in a style very much reminiscent of the early 1800's. Drake has always been the kind of captain that all people fear but nonetheless respect for his intelligence and a keen eye for details

It was a time to be joyous. The evening of Christmas Eve had begun with a magical entrance. Flakes of ashen snow trickled under the pale sky, decorated with streaks of pink and purple hues that reflected from a grand sunset. Cold breeze easily filled the lonely streets, as most people had opted for the snug and toasty warmth of a home occupied by their family members.
Although this wasn't the case for Zack, he equally felt a great joy and relief. The strenuous mission had finally come to its end. Earlier, the squad spent a tiring five hours working to retrieve Marilyn Hutton's earrings, an impromptu mission thought in the nick of time. The plan was simple - sedate her, take hold of the jewelry and leave no evidence - but even a trivial error could blow their cover.

Reaching for straws to keep above water
As the tide washes over us.
