Born in Mauville, but raised in lived in Blackthorn City. SO Blackthorn City and Johto. History:
Ricky was born in fast-paced Mauville city. His parents were both two very successful Coordinators in Hoenn who were rising to fame, and Ricky was really an accident- a baby really wasn't in their plan for fame. However, they accepted the mistake and gave birth to him. Ricky was born slightly underweight and had many problems as a newborn, the biggest being albinism, something that had run in the dad's family. For his sake, they moved far away to the calmer and quieter Blackthornn city, where the air was fresher and the mountains provided a natural shade which would allow Ricky to grow easier.
But they weren't ready to give up their dream yet. Within a few months of his birth they flew away to Sinnoh, leaving Ricky under the care of a local nanny (who he still considers real family) and pursued their contset dreams. This became a constant in Ricky's life. By the age of five he was fully independent. His parents were gone more than half of his life, and he grew up with the nanny and took care of himself.
On his tenth birthday, he awoke alone like most other days. His parents had sent him a gift from far away, in a plain cardboard box labelled with foreign stamps. In it was an egg. Ricky took to this egg like a child, taking the upmost care of it. Before his parents were back, it had hatched into a young Riolu, his first Pokemon. This changed his life, and he decided that he would become a trainer. So, at age ten, he left home.
He first went to Dragon's Den, a sign of rebellion. He had always been told by the elders not to go in there. But he didn't get far before he found a dieing Dratini. The dragon-type Pokemon had somehow been injured, and Ricky desperatly tried to save it. His attempts failed. But as a final gift of gratitude for Ricky's kindness, the dragon merged it's orb into Ricky, inubing Ricky with the dragon's life aura. He passed out, and was rescued by a boy named AD.
Thus became Ricky's journey. For nearly 15 years he and AD were inseperable. Ricky followed him until AD gave in, and the two became bestfriends. Together they filled their youth with happiness, travelling all over the globe and helping many. Eventually they went their seperate ways, but they always run into eachother all over the world.
Recently Ricky moved to Blackthorn city, glad to be back home. His parents were gone from the city so he felt as his life was going to be easy. But with war breaking out, he felt a "call to duty" so he left his happy home and moved out to a small hut he lived in for many years, located at the base of Mt.Silver. Then he joined "rag-tag" group, called the Resistance, which leads into this. Personality:
Ricky's primary mode of living is focused internally, in which he deals with things according to how he feels about them. His secondary more is external, taking things in via intuition. He is focused on making the world a better place for people and Pokemon. His goal in life is to find out his meaning in life. What is his purpose? How can he best serve people and Pokemon? He is an idealist and perfectionist, and he drives himself hard in his quest for achieving any and all goals he has identified for himself.
Ricky is highly intuitive about people. He relies heavily on his intuition to guide him, and he uses his discoveries [about people] to constantly search for value in life. Ricky is on a continuos mission to find the truth and meaning in underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through his value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential in helping him define or refine his path in life. The goal at the end of the path is always the same though- to help people and make the world a better place.
Generally thoughtful and considerate, Ricky can be a good listener and puts people at ease. Although he can be reserved in expressing emotion, he as a very deep well of caring and is genuinely interested in understanding people. This sincerity is often sensed by others, making Ricky a valued friend and confidante. He can be quite warm with people he knows well.
Ricky truly does not mind conflict (sometimes even enjoying it), but will usually avoid it. If he must face it, he will always approach it from the perspective of his feelings. In conflict situations, he places little importance on who is right or wrong. He focuses on the way that the conflict makes him feel, and doesn't truly care whether he is right or not. This trait may sometimes make him seem irrational and illogical in conflict situations. Still, he is a good mediatior, and is typically good at solving other's conflicts since he intuitively understands people's perspectives and feelings, and genuinely wants to help them.
Ricky is flexible and laid-back, until one of his values is violated. In the face of his value system being threatened, he can become an aggressive defender, fighting passionetly for his cause. When Ricky has adopted a project or job which interests him, it usually becomes a "cause" for him. Although he isn't really a detail-orientated person, he will cover every possible detail with determination and vigor when working for his cause.
When it comes to mudane details of life maintenance, however, Ricky is typically completely unaware of such things. He woulnd't notice a stain on his shirt.
Often times Ricky doesn't like to deal with hard facts and logic (not always). His focus on feelings and human conditionmakes it dificult for him to deal with impersonal judgement. He doesn't understand the validity of it, which makes him quite ineffective at it. Yet, he has developed a sense of impersonal analysis and can prove to be quite logical when he wants to be. Under stressm it is not uncommon for him to mis-use hard logic in the heat of anger, throwing out fact after fact in an emotional outburst.
Ricky is a talented writer (and a terrible artist, although he enjoys drawing). He has no issues expressing himself verbally, but has a much easier and better ability to define and express what he is feeling on paper. Pokemon Team:
