    Well, KB, I can summarize your app, but it's a very, very short summation.

    Noibat, 16, red markings on nose and claws.
    Trainer was the true Miles Hall.
    Encountered the bad guys, Miles Hall died.
    Things happened that were dramatic, namely when their family finally decided to move on, and Noibat decided to leave, picking up his pokeball from the dad.
    Noibat took up his trainer's name.

    That's the best I can do from memory, but yeah.

    Needs some moves that I still haven't added, but thanks.

    Name: Miles Hall
    Species: Noibat
    Level: 16
    Gender: Male
    Appearance: Already has some red colours on his nose and claws. He's a bit bigger than the usual one. He has a hole in the tip of his ear, one of few scars left thanks to the Pokemon Centre's technology.
    Personality: (Er... if I can't even figure out my personality in real life, I'm gonna have serious issues trying to stick to certain traits.)
    -Rather saddened
    -Trying to move on
    -Not exactly in the best of moods

    (If I can't fulfill all of the above, well I can't do anything more for you.)

    Moveset:
    -Screech
    -Gust
    -Bite
    -Wing Attack

    Backstory: Miles was about 13- let's go back a bit. Miles was born to a regular family in the world of Pokemon, living in Acorn Town. His dad was literally a trainer, pretty much a mentor for children wanting to get better at fighting. Of course, this would stretch out from Pokemon fighting to children boxing. His mother worked overseas as some sort of professor, coming back every few months or so for about a week before leaving again.

    Miles often came along for free boxing lessons, but he was never interested, which is why he only came occasionally as he became older. He preferred spending time out battling either trainers or wild Pokemon with his Noibat, a rather old and forgotten Pokemon left in his mother's PC. Sure, it wasn't feeling too well after years of being cooped up in there, but he did have a good bond with Miles as the years went by. Since Miles never went on adventures, his Noibat didn't gain too many levels, so obviously it wouldn't evolve. If there was something creepy about his Noibat, it was the fact he could speak, although barely - God knows what his mother did overseas. The Noibat was obviously scared for a bit, with unknown memories haunting him.

    When Miles grew old enough, he started to seek education. He wasn't like the other kids, hoping they'd become the next champion. To him, everyone else was just wasting their time, fighting each other for a few medals, and the title of being the best trainer in the region. Frankly, he kept his curtains down and his lights on, going through books and eventually requiring glasses for his failing eyesight. Not that it was related to his mother requiring glasses. At this point, Miles had few friends since he didn't always go out. He would sometimes be teased for his smarts, but they were always jokes and he could always do the same.

    One day, realising the stuff he was doing was actually rather... boring, he went outside to go fight some Pokemon in the bushes. Unlike the other parents around, his dad would in fact encourage him to fight the Pokemon outside, claiming that boys needed to "toughen up and stop bein' a bunch of pansies." Of course, his dad was quite relieved he decided to go outside for the first time in three days. He never objected to his learning, but he was rather concerned with the amount of time he spent reading and writing.

    So, for a quick one, he fought a few Pokemon with his Noibat. Naturally like all the other kids, he felt rather happy upon his win. Unnaturally, he would learn the rules of life the hard way. Spending five minutes fighting was often quite short for the common trainer. But for Miles, if he had only came back after three, he wouldn't have lost an old and faithful friend. It was that day when a Team Havoc researcher out on the field decided to have a little fun. First, he pushed Miles down. Second, the Noibat was brutally mauled. It didn't take long for his dad to come along and deal the same damage to the researcher. The difference was only one of them lived. Miles had suffered a severe head injury, falling back first on a rock. He was 13 when his life ended. This is when the Miles I was talking about begins.

    With a son gone, the family continued on more or less. Sometimes, the father didn't open his club, preferring to stay home and looking at old albums of Miles. The mother... well, she quit her job, obviously more distressed than the father. She never explained why she quit and seemed to overreact, since the father assumed that she was as devastated as him. But that wasn't the main reason why. The Noibat never knew of his past, with the only memory being a cold room.

    Eventually, the Noibat left the house once the father burnt all memories of Miles in the fireplace, preferring to move on. The mother also moved on, going back to her old job and leaving the house. The Noibat, reluctant to let go, asked about being the trainer Miles 'dreamed' of (an obvious lie, but the father would give in to that). The father nodded as he stood in the doorway of his house, handing the Noibat his Pokeball he always kept in his jacket.

    Taking up the alias 'Miles Hall' in honour of his old trainer, Miles left. Never to return to his old house. At least, after leaving it today, heading towards Twisted-Oak Village after his mother mentioned something about another professor visiting that village.

    I need to send a PM or something to Sola.

    I MUST MAKE AN APP.

    Expect it when my exam finishes tomorrow. Thursday... if you're American though, then it's Wednesday.

    Trust me, he's a 'veteran' and his RP is better than those gjinka ones.

    Before him, it was some others that made Pokemon RPs so good that they can be seen on the Most Posts sections. There's quite a few there, although they've all ended by now.

    Talk about irony.

    Anyway, Sol's Pokemon RP is in the OOC stage. You should go check it out.

    Well, I used to be a writer. So I am not completely "Bob saw a bird" syndromed. I am more..."As Bob looked up in the sky, he noticed a bird flying across the horizon." Although, when I really get into it, I can go "Bob, the man he was, thinking about last nights dinner, set his eyes on the sky. As he rested for a second, and let his thoughts ponder, he noticed movement. No, more than movement. He noticed a black, evil eyed raven flying above him, giving him a sense of dread as it bored into his thoughts. In cawed, and kept flying across the horizon in which it had forsaken with its presence. This led Bob to feel a chill as it left his sight."

    Although, it is much harder to do such large decripitions in RPs.

    :P

    'decriptions'

    Mhm. Anyway, arguably he did mention being a noob, so I ought to bring that up. Why? Satisfy one's curiousity.

    That emphasis is lacking in the full stop. It's emphasised in the capitals I suggested though. Now, your own irony (it's a loop now) is now involving annoying people to the point where they don't even join... why so? Weed out grammar critics? Intentionally not RP? Don't dwell on it for everyone's sake.

    (Please note this is all irrelevant to my thoughts about your RP overall. There's a rather offsetting tone in your posts, but otherwise I have no other concerns.)

    Alright. Here's some tips:

    -RPing is basically writing a story. Except you have to interact with others. It's as demanding as being a TV star when compared to a movie star; here's a better comparison: one you write millions of paragraphs over the years, the other you write a novel.
    -Don't write about five lines of RPing, or you'll be subject to stigma; you'll be referred to as the lower-class of the RPing system.
    -Don't make another RP - we've got many around, and so it's the last thing we need (but if it's good, then obviously it'll be an exception).
    -Yes, you are - we're all veterans. There are even older veterans, but they've run off to other RPing sites like ourselves (we still lurk around). I'm probably the youngest at around 15.
    -Improve your grammar, or ditto:
    -Look around, see a RP you deem fit before joining. Try not to join the ones that have about 3 lines of RPing and go through ten pages a day.
    -Follow the basic rules of RPing, I cannot stress this enough.

    Well, I gotta say, I'm in! Also... as for names for the three unnamed things, why not...
    - Lucky City
    - Oldie Town (they'd have a sort-of-ruins area where you can encounter pokemon)
    - Roselia Gardens



    ... or anything else, I was just giving some suggestions.

    Lucky City? That may as well be a stock name for every city you know.

    Seriously though, I have nagging concerns about the full stop at the end of the RP's name. I've already expressed interest in the RP, though.

    I do have an open mind. Not everyone likes anime, let alone be willing to associate themselves with it.

    Regardless, I never said no, and I've been encouraging you to make a Pokemon RP. You ought to read rather than base off tones in my posts.

    Oh yeah, now when I read some of my posts, I don't always subject my posts to moves and such.
