History: Calvin was born in Castelia City and lived there during the first few years of his life. Eventually, their parents began traveling the world with him, and he always had Pokemon around him. Being exposed to Pokemon so much made him want to be a Pokemon Trainer, and he eventually started befriending and catching Pokemon of his own. He did a lot of training and bonding with them, but never got to try and collect any badges, as they were always moving around. However, he was able to study a good deal. He found normal-types to be the most appealing, and began developing a training style for that type. When he realized the significance of his choice to train normal-types, He decided to become a normal-type Gym Leader. As such, he planned to teach Trainers about using abilities, and moves that affect abilities, to their advantage. He eventually gained an affinity for double battles, which he specializes in. Not long after he became a Gym Leader, he met a fellow rookie, Raven. She was a dark specialist, and became a rival to him, which proved mutually beneficial as they both kept improving.
Personality: Calvin is a very ambitious person. He strives to do his absolute best in any battle, but isn't concerned about winning all the time. He believes the only time you truly lose is when you don't try your hardest. He gets along well with most people, and cares a great deal about his friends to the point of doing anything for them.
