Name: Sam Hendon
Personality: Sam's competitive in a joking fashion, not wanting to be beaten but accepting the eventuality that he's never going to be the best at everything. He is kind and witty, with an extremely black sense of humour. He likes intelligent people and hates those who are trying to dumb themselves down, or who are cruel in social situations or hypocritical.
Appearance: Sam's about average height, at 5'11" and quite muscly. He has a slightly tanned body and a brown fringe, which is impossible to control. He has grey eyes and a small nose. He usually wears jeans and T-shirt with his favourite white hoodie, and when competing in Athletics wears his Rustboro District vest.
History: Sam went to a local Rustboro school, where he was picked on quite a bit by the other boys because of his intelligence. He found refuge in the local Athletics Club, and spent more and more time training there with his Pokémon. He started to compete and wasn't too bad, doing well in inter-district Cross-Country competitions. He qualified for Regionals and even went to the Nationals, although didn't do too well there. His Pokémon have always been his athletic partners, and his battlers, and most importantly his companions.
Infernape-M-Iron Fist: Sam's running partner and boxing opponent much of the time. He is also Sam's best battler.
Snorlax-M-Thick Fat: Nicknamed Sumo Snorlax is a huge powerhouse in Sam's team
