Can I reserve a spot maybe?
Only kidding, consider yourself reserved! :D
Absolutely love it. Here's my Sign-up:
Name: Mauve Banzett
Appearance: Mauve stands at a 5'7" height, with a fairly athletic build. He has long, black hair with bangs that frame his face. His eyes are amber colored, shaped to look like he's glaring at all times. He wears oval horn-rimmed glasses with black frames in most instances. Mauve's skin is pale, and he doesn't tan very well. His wardrobe usually consists of purple and black tops (this could be either a purple button-up shirt and black under shirt or purple and black striped shirt with long sleeves), worn, blue or gray jeans and his typical black tennis shoes. He wears a pair of black rings with skull and crossbones across the band, one on each index finger. He also has a pair of onyx bead bracelets worn on each wrist.
History: Mauve was born in the beautiful city of Lumiose, heart of the Kalos region. His mother, Sevreen Banzett, was a successful Coordinator in her time. She would often become one of the top few, noteworthy of praise. His father, however, was a trainer for quite a while. He retired after a slew of unsuccessful Pokemon Leagues. The two had separated some time before Mauve was born. Or, to be more specific, his father was given the royal boot when Sevreen and him fought over how their son would live his life. Sevreen wanted him to "follow his calling," as his father wanted him to abstain form anything other than Pokemon battles, and do what he couldn't. To live his dream. So, she forced him to leave, as she knew he had no right to make his own son live his dream.
Mauve grew up in an educational household, as his mother wanted him to see the beauty of the Pokemon world, and all that was possible for him. She would tutor him herself, as she thoroughly exclaimed not wanting her son to join public schooling of any sort. Sevreen had used her savings for Mauve's education to provide him with texts among texts, from books pertaining to every Pokemon/Pokemon type to the history of Contests and Battles.
Over the years, Mauve had shown dedication for his studies, able to remember Pokedex entries for most Pokemon outside of mythology and legends. He could even point out their type by heart. But, of course, he was subjected to loneliness. His mother allowed him to play with her Pokemon, as he grew to the age when most children went out on their own journey. Of course, his mother refused to let him leave at such a young age. Mauve understood well enough, and continued his studies. Eventually, he grew very close to his mother's prized Hydreigon, Maleficent.
Mauve had grown to love the strange and obscure Pokemon most people would run in fear from, ranging from his mother's Hydreigon to her wily Sableye, Impsley. But, Sevreen eventually knew he had to go to some sort of institution, one with a high standard for education. After learning of the Lilycove University, she had immediately signed him up.
Personality: Mauve, having grown up in a strictly home-schooled environment, he never really developed any social skills outside of his mother and her Pokemon. This would normally give the assumption he is awkward, and very shy. On the contrary, he can be very outgoing. Though, when one has crossed him in any ill manner he will dislike them entirely. He is a bit snarky when it comes to Pokemon trivia, as his vast knowledge of Pokemon has put him above what most of his peers would know around his age. He loves Pokemon, especially those shunned by "normal" eyes. He still isn't sure what he wants to do with his life, but he feels going to the Lilycove University will help change that.
Pokemon Choices: Shuppet/Cacnea/Spinarak (No particular order)
Other: Mauve has an insane, maniacal laugh he makes from time to time. He also adores carnivorous, Grass-type Pokemon, Poison-types in general, and Pokemon people usually find "scary" or "frightening." He grew to understand that strangeness, inside and out can be better than what the social norm prefers.
Theme Song: Bad Manors
Nothing else matters.

Name: Willhelm Thrace
Background: Will was born and raised in the Hoenn region, Fortree Town. He grew up hearing the stories his father shared and playing with the Pokemon he was catching and bringing back with him. Every time he returned to Fortree, Will and the Typhlosion his father used to own were playing together; they had become best friends, even though they parted every time his father left for another adventure. Will aspired to become like him; by the time he was ten, he had grown restless and wanting of adventure, so he wandered off to Lilycove, without having any Pokemon. It was dangerous, but he somehow made it through by sticking with other people. In Lilycove, he was intrigued by the old, massive sewer system of the city, which had never been mapped before at the time. He borrowed a Charmander from the day care and used its fire to go down in the sewers and investigate, having absolutely no fear of the dangers. He ended up making a map of the complicated sewers, a map which became famous for its accuracy and quality.
Will was praised for his effort and was paid grandly for his contribution to the city. His mother bought a new, better house in Lavaridge Town with the money, but he didn't seem to want to stay there. Close to when he was sixteen, he had realized he wanted to be an explorer and a Pokemon trainer, and that he couldn't stay in one place for long. Instead of staying in Lavaridge, he hiked the volcano and drew a picture of the view from up there, then started noting down important ways of survival in an area like this. But he didn't stay there for long. He headed east to find the desert, where he encountered and saved a Trapinch, who oddly wasn't wild; the two tagged along, Will figuring that it belonged to a trainer who had probably lost it. He discovered he was good at bringing out the potential of each Pokemon, as the Trapinch seemed to like him and cooperate well with him. That was the first time Will realized he should have considered catching a Pokemon earlier, as it would surely aid him in his exploration and travels. Perhaps a Smeargle to help him sketch, too. Being a trainer suddenly seemed like an enticing idea.
Personality: Will was born a with a strong sense of wanderlust. He is a prodigal explorer and a brilliant artist. He started drawing by the age he was able to hold a pencil, and running off his hometown as soon as he could outrun his mother. However bold or daring he might be with the goal he sets, he is always cautious when approaching them and makes sure he is successful; he is quite ambitious and prideful about his prowess, though he is subtle about it. While he is a well mannered and seemingly kind individual, open to social contact, he can also be awkward, and he doesn't usually share intimacy with other people. Sometimes, he is cold, silent and withdrawn; other times, he is outgoing. He is generally more prone to get attached to his Pokemon rather than people, while he would consider his Pokemon part of himself and share everything with them.
Will has a superb memory that allows him to recall details from things he has seen during his childhood; as such, he remembers clearly nearly everything he has experienced so far in his life. Along with his memory, he has great survival skills and an explorer's intuition. He is a thoughtful person and kind of a cynical one, as he likes the world said as it is. Will has a certain amount of wisdom he has gathered from his travels, but at times he forgets himself and can come off as immature and perhaps naive. Some of his favorite philosophical quotes are, 'it's not stealing if it's thieves you're taking from' and, 'one man's trash is another man's treasure'.
Pokemon Choices: Charmander, Mudkip, Chimchar

@Murkmire - I'm loving that theme song. :D Accepted!
@Ray Maverick -
I like it! There's two things though. First, the maximum age is 17, since the students are all freshmen. Second, did you read over all the rules? :PFix'd, and accepted! :D
EDIT: The allowed Pokemon list has been expanded on the first post. Feel free to edit your choices if you wish.

@AutumnRain Absolutely! You are reserved. :D
Is it okay if I reserve a spot? I plan to have it done later today.
My new anime fic!
"I pledge allegiance, to the Flag of the Divided States of America. And to the PACs, for which it stands, one Nation, at odds, divisible, with Liberty and Justice for some.”
@Pokemon Trainer Calvin Yessir, you are reserved.
Alright guys, just wanted to let you know that today is probably the last day reservations will be open. I plan on starting this Saturday morning on the 25th, so if you haven't started on your SU yet, now would be a good time to do so. Thanks!
Name: Reyliik "Rafi" Helios
Appearance: With porcelain skin, Rafi has golden hair tied up, but spiky in the back. She wears a dark gray T-shirt with a Black Veil Brides logo, brown skinny- jeans, and orange Adidas. Her eyes are an electric blue, and she has a purple guitar strapped to her back. She also has red gauntlets on her wrists that glow a blue color, like Groudon. She is also very tall at 5' 4" for her age. She has a lean, yet muscular build.
Personality: Rafi often has issues with having too many crowds around her. She gets very claustrophobic, and as an introvert prefers to practice alone on her electric guitar. She records music when she has free time, and overall hates deep conversations. When she plays her guitar, she gets lost in the music and ignores everybody else. When she isn't playing on her guitar, she is often very quiet and draws her father's prized Pyroar on a large sketchpad. She is often complimented on her art, but is often a bit shy on admitting her skill and turns down most positive comments.
History: Rafi grew up on the shores of Evergrande City, playing with Pokémon since she was six. She loved to especially play with her dad's Pyroar. She lived only with her father, because her mother lived in Humilau City back in Kalos. Her father, Demyur, decided to send her to a Pokémon School . Her grades were dwindling on the edge, and her father eventually found out that her friends weren't the friends she knew anymore. Demyur wanted Rafi to be happy, and for Christmas gave her a purple electric guitar. She loved it, and played it for her dad's Pyroar. The female Pokémon became attached to Rafi, so when she deported for the more central region of Hoenn, the Lion Pokémon had trouble realizing it was goodbye. She picked up on art when her mother gave a sketchpad and pencil to her when she landed in Fortree City. From there, she lived in the large town for two months until her mother sent her off to the Academy and flew back to Kalos.
Pokemon Choices: (In favored order) Skrelp, Litleo, Treecko
Other: Rafi hates loud people, but when she plays her purple guitar she becomes so happy, that she figured nothing else matters.

Sarah Isn't a morning person and is usually pretty grumpy in the mornings you don't want to piss her off before her morning hot cocoa.

@Heliolisk - Accepted.
@serahthecute - Hmmm... it doesn't exactly fit the tone I had in mind for this RP. The tone for this RP is more serious, while your SU is decidedly not. Definitely needs to be toned down a bit, and there's a lot of grammatical errors and missing punctuation. For time being though, Rejected. :/
@Madara Uchiha, @Pokemon Trainer Kestron, @Flaze, @AutumnRain, @Pokemon Trainer Calvin.
Just a reminder, the RP starts Saturday. Tomorrow would be the ideal time to have your SU's posted. Also, reservations are now effectively closed.
Keep in mind guys, the Pokemon lists has been expanded, so if there was a Pokemon you wanted that wasn't on the list previously, check it again. You may edit your SU's accordingly. :D
Haha, I was kind of hoping for Ninetales, but Cacturne is cool too :p
