I claimed Metang
Name: William "Will" Nocturne
Hometown: Lavender Town, Kanto
Appearance: Will stands at 5,8 and weighs 128 lbs. He's rather slim and narrow, being slightly petite for a boy his age. His skin is pale white, almost like snow, and his hair is straight neck length chestnut with long bangs that make it hard to see his big bright green eyes. His style of dress is a little odd in some people's eyes. He chooses to wear a black blazer with a red trim on the sleeves and coller, with silver buttons shaped like roses, over a white collared shirt. He wears a red ribbon tied under that collar tied into a large bow. His pants consist of a pair of trousers that reach down to just below his knees, with a silver chain hanging from his left back pocket. He also wears a pair of black knees socks, and black laced boots. The ensemble is completed with a top hat that differs from day to day, often having different decorations depending on Will's mood. (I.E Sometimes it has a large red ribbon, others times it will be adorned with red roses, some times a pair of red bag wings, etc.)
Background: Will grew up in Lavender Town, his father leaving at a very early age for reasons unknown to him. Growing up, Will was an fairly introverted kid, and because of his lack of social skills, he was picked on a lot. He had no friends, and even didn't alway see eye to with his mother. One day, when looking for somewhere new to explore, Will happened upon the Pokemon Tower. That's where he discovered Ghost Type Pokemon. Will fell in love with them at first sight, because he saw a bit of himself in them. Pokemon who had a bad reputation because of there quiet natures and preference to shadows. Ghost Types were perfect in Will's eyes, and they helped him break out of his shell. He eventually started to dress so that he could be like the Ghost Types he loved so much. He later befriended a Gastly, who would start following Will after Will offered him some Poffins, and the two haven't been seen without each other since.
Will left Lavender to start his own journey, choosing to get a brand new start in the Sinnoh Region. Battles never really interested him, and he wanted to show off the charm of the Ghost Pokemon that he loved so much. Will developed a lot skill as a Coordinator, being the runner up in the Sinoh Grand Festival. He caught an entire team of Pokemon, all being Ghost Types. His skill in contests and his preference for Ghost Types eventually earned him the nickname, The Black Rose of Lavender.
Personality: Will is a kind hearted boy whose unafraid to speak his mind. Will loves Ghost Types with a burning passion, and doesn't give into stereotypes or myths on Pokemon. If someone takes these superstitions to far, Will is known to get very mad at that person, and proceeds to verbally snap their head off. Will's very loyal to his Pokemon, and hates it when people abuse or mistreat their Pokemon. Will also has a thing for cute Pokemon, but his definition of cute isn't quite the same as everyone else's. Will also likes sweets, such as cake and fruit tarts, and has a preference of for Earl Grey Tea as his favorite drink.

Name: Lili "Flower Girl" Zwingli
Hometown: Undella Town
Appearance: Lili has blonde hair, in a chin-length bob cut, and bright green eyes. She is rather short at 5'1", and only weighs about 100 pounds with a very boyish figure. She used to wear her hair long and in braids, but her hair was once cut by a stray Razor Leaf and she found that it was more comfortable. In contests, she wears a long-sleeved dress that is deep red with lighter stripes, white cuffs and collar, along with a neckbow of varying color, white tights, and shiny black Mary Jane shoes. Typically, the neckbow is blue to match the ribbon she wears in her hair during contests. Her normal attire is what appears to be a military uniform, consisting of a green double-breasted jacket with black collar, cuffs, and epaulets, brown trousers, and brown combat boots with white cuffs. She also wears a white beret. In her normal attire, she is constantly mistaken for a boy due to her boyish appearance and militaristic uniform, though she doesn't seem to care much.
Background: Lili originally lived amongst aristocratic nobles, being raised to be the way she is now. Eventually, however, that time ended when a depression struck, and her family could no longer take care of her. As a result, she was put into a foster home, where she lived in misery from the age of 7 to the age of 10, when she was first adopted. She was passed around three different families in the span of one year, eventually settling for good in Verdanturf Town. While there, she gained an affinity for grass-types and flowers in general. Once she was 13, she left on her journey to become a Coordinator. In the past 3 years, she has participated in 2 consecutive Grand Festivals, losing in the appeals round in the first and making top 16 in the second.
Personality: Lili is described as being rather high-tech, with a humble and mature personality and a level head, though she will clearly state her views. Her speaking pattern is rather formal, and she didn't seem to understand informal greetings. The formality of her speech is such that she seems almost unable to state anything in layman's terms, almost compulsively describing things in extremely technical terms. She also won't hesitate to make a correction to any error she finds, meaning well in doing so, though it becomes teeth-grindingly annoying. She is also very precise when she's giving a description, (e.g. never using blue when azure, indigo, or royal blue would be more apt). In her attempts to be precise, she will use bigger words, ironically making her oratorical sonorities too pleonastic to be expeditiously assimilated (In her attempt to be better understood, she makes herself harder to understand). The extent to this varies with her mood; when she's scared, she might drop the big words and speak normally, or when she's upset, she might get worse with it. In battle, she is surprisingly complacent at first, but gradually gets competitive, to the point of being scary. She calculates every move that her opponent might make, and plans her moves accordingly. With good calculations, she can lead into exceedingly flamboyant yet very deadly combinations. This makes her a potentially deadly opponent, despite her gentle exterior.
Pokemon: Roserade (Roza), Female, Poison Point
Shiftry (Vant), Male, Chlorophyll

Name:people just call him "the ghost" or "the traveller for not sticking around very long except on special occasions, but he instead wants to be called just "ghost"
Hometown:lavender town kanto
Appearance:he's tall at about 5,9. He is very lean. His hair is pitch black making his pale sight skin a thing that is so contrasted it makes him very easy to see .He dresses like Steven which he first saw as a candidate for an idea for a style.but all black, making a dark and mysterious tone that isn't FLAMBOYANT to go with his cold ice eyes. He likes this appearance most of all because it goes with him. It shows who he is. He understand that I may be contrasting but that's the point. One thing that's different is he wears a brown fedora and white shoes.
Background:ghost grew up in lavender town. He found the Pokemon tower only at the age of four and at the age of five he watched a Pokemon get killed. At the age of nine he started writing songs. These songs ranged from death to true happiness. At the age of ten he had witnessed 35 burials and 23 deaths to Pokemon. He saw truth and this truth was that the people here needed something so he strived so hard to be more. He was going to give this place a name.
At the age of 12 he went to become a traveling coordinator. Soon he had reached unova and eventually getting to virbank city preforming with Roxie with his own songs. Soon he had reached castelia and found an audience in a alley cafe. rising to the top using his art He was peeking through to fame but not there just yet. Gaining critical success and a loyal fan following at the age of 15. he strived to show he had talent to show he had true skill in his art. At the age of 16 he had entered his first tournament to show he was worthwhile. He worked to showThe world that looked down upon his home they were wrong. He failed the first time and people laughed at his art. Over the next two years he trained his art to be better than ever before. At 18 he soured to the top of the ledge in a Cinderella story. Now he is accepted into the grand festival as a prodigy to his hometown he has to make his town noticed.
Personality:dark and mysterious, but in his inner psyche is a torn depressed beaten mind built to convey some of the darkest emotions ever felt. He constantly goes through flash backs and memories of death. He faces strong depression, but tries to keep a happy mood when talking. He constantly has more of a humble attitude when he performs and talks. He prefers to stay out of most conversations though as he likes to listen more than talk. When he talks though he is rather straight to the point and dosen't sugarcoat things. since he is so direct with talking he names his Pokemon unoriginal names. He likes to discuss one topic at a time and make an entire discussion on one thing. One problem is he likes to contemplate so much he makes simple things complex.

Name: Alex Wake, he has been dubbed 'Mr. Johto' because of his all-Johto team and a pun on 'Miss Universe' for his looks.
Hometown: born in Cinnabar Island, Kanto but raised in Azalea Town, Johto
Appearance: First things first, Alex is exceptionally handsome. He is also a very tall guy who often towers over everyone he meets. His torso is rather defined with a nice chest and arm muscles, but his legs are very skinny and often leads to awkward movement. He has dark brown hair, almost black, that he styles in a messy tousled look. His eyes are Cyan blue and he has a black soul patch under his bottom lip. Alex has a piercing in his right eyebrow. There is a long scar running up his right arm.
His street clothes consist of tight jeans and a purple hoodie, which is rather boring and keeps him from drawing attention to himself (He is rather famous because of his contest record). When he performs he usually wears a suit that matches one of his pokemon. A black suit with a red bowtie and black fedora for Murkrow, a Purple suit with a red tie for Forretress, a white suit and tie with blue and red triangles on the tie for Togekiss, and a pink suit with a fluffy "russian" hat for Flaffy. He loves to look stylish for contests, and even can be seen wearing something controversial instead of one of his normal suits.
Background: Alex was born in Cinnibar Island, but his mother quickly moved them to Azalea Town to get away from his father who divorced her. Alex's mother is extremely over-protective, and he was never allowed to go anywhere alone. She deeply feared that he will leave her just like her husband did. His mother would try hard to keep him in the house and shield him from pokemon battles so he wouldn't want to be a trainer, but that backfired.
Alex grew up watching contests instead of gym battles on TV, and eventually fell in love with them. At age 10 he went to visit his father. His dad gave him a feisty little Murkrow. Alex and Murkrow did not get along at first but after awhile they became inseparable. His mother took a disliking towards Murkrow, blaming him for provoking Alex to act out. She was considering letting him go out on a journey to become a coordinator, after seeing how much he was training for it, but before he could receive her blessing as a coordinator he ran away to be on his own. It has been six years and since then he's seen his mother.
Personality: He is a generally grumpy person, who can be pessimistic and put down ideas. Of course he can be cheery and helpful when he wants to be (Like any guy), but that is mostly when he's around girls. He cares deeply for pokemon, but people not as much. Alex is a ruffian type of person, who thinks problems will only be solved by taking action (or punching someone), and just talking about something won't do anything. He is terrified of large bugs and pokemon with sharp claws, and because of this he holds his scar when he sees a Noctowl.
Alex cannot stand tourists. He feels that they make a bad name for humans and all they seem to do is destroy culture. This may be because his home of Azalea Town was overrun by tourists who wanted to see what it was like to live in a 'quaint little cottage' and use Pokeballs made of Apricorns. He likes a lot of feminine things but tries to hide it by wearing a lot of black and acting rowdy.

Name: Isaac Rundell
Hometown: Mauville City
Appearance: Isaac stands at 5'11, broad shouldered and built along stocky lines, weighing in at a slightly self conscious 182 pounds. He wears his brown hair short, for convenience sake. His skin is fair in tone and his eyes are hazel, and generally seen behind a pair of blue rimmed glasses. For everyday travel, Isaac prefers wearing a simple black jacket over a dark blue T-shirt, along with blue jeans and brown loafers, carrying a dark blue backpack around. However, when entering contests, he tends to favor a dark green dress shirt with a plain, silver tie, comboed with black dress shoes and khaki pants.
Background: Isaac is the middle child of a three boy family, and was always the oddball. His two brothers both loved athletics and battling, while Isaac prefered art studies and reading. However, on his tenth birthday, he did set out on a journey, and made an attempt at the gym circuit of Hoenn. However, he failed to get his badges in time for the Hoenn league. Afterwords, he decided to try the Unova league, traveling abroad and backpacking through the region, but failing once again at entrance to the league.
After returning to Hoenn from Unova, Isaac met Millie, a traveling Coordinator. The two of them had taken the same ship to Slateport, and Isaac helped her train for the upcoming Slateport contest. Millie later convinced Isaac to give contests a shot himself, and the two became ribbon rivals, traveling separately through the same regions, honing their skills against one another.
It's been 6 years since that point, and Isaac has now had a good deal of experience with contests, having enough wins to enter the Johto and Hoenn Grand Festivals, and falling short of entering Kanto by one ribbon and Sinnoh by two. Johto, his first Festival attempt, saw him failing to get past the appeals round, but he did manage to land in the top 16 of the Hoenn festival. Isaac hopes to become a top coordinator in order to secure a career in entertainment, an area he has always had a lot of interest in.
Personality: Isaac is generally an introverted person, preferring to quietly listen to a conversation. He will, however, contribute when he feels it's needed, often attempting to give advice or ideas. Generally friendly, Isaac is happy to assist anyone who needs it, whether it be a partner in a practice battle or lending a hand at poffin baking. He tends to avoid major conflict like the plague, however, and at the first sign of it will generally make an excuse and leave.
On the battlefield, Isaac is generally a sporting enough opponent, but will not hesitate to take any opportunity that he's given. He's here to win, after all. But he will accept his losses graciously, and try to be a good winner as well.
Other: I hope this is enough, I wasn't sure if my descriptions were flamboyant enough for the RP

Ok I honestly got swamped with YouTube work but now let's see......
@Ludwig Beilschmidt: Accepted. This amount of detail is exactly what I am looking for in every application.
@Shiki : Accepted. Same thing. I love the amount of detail you put into your character.
@Clef : Accepted. Welcome to the RP
@jtg56108 : Denied. Your entire application needs more work. Look at the accepted ones if you need an idea of what to shoot for.
@Lupine Volt : Barely Denied. That one-liner in the Background portion is far too short and random. Give it a little more depth, and you'll be in. And I love the way you included the rule into it.
I'll post my character's sign up tonight. I just gotta find it on my computer.
