:iconbattle-frontier::iconbattle-frontier::iconbattle-frontier:
Editing/art replacement will commence soon!

:bulletorange: TRAINER

Name: Joanna "Jo" Ciole
Age: 21
Occupation: Ranger
Current Residence: Vientown, Almia
Old apps for reference: UBF10 UBF11
 :bulletwhite: Round Zero - NA
 :bulletwhite: Round One - [x] [x] [x]
Appearances: (Please link me your entries! I'd love to see them. ^^)
   [x] [x] [x] [x]
Memes/Events: [x] [x]
Personality:
Jo's days of being bullied are long over, but she still prefers the company of pokemon over humans.
She is terrible with first meetings, appearing to be shy and distant at first a glance. However, if you manage to get past the nervous stuttering and awkward smiling, she can turn into a surprisingly energetic person.
Her headstrong attitude and short temper tend to get her into trouble.
At the same time, she's willing to go all out for what she believes is right.
She recovers slowly to failure, especially the shortcomings of her pokemon.
Since becoming a Ranger, she had cut down on time spent training her Pokemon. While her team isn't incompetent, one should not expect her to be exceptionally well versed in battle strategies.
Story:
During Jo's UBF11 run, she decided that she still had much to learn, so she dropped out and set off for Unova once again.
Before she could finish challenging all of the region's gym leaders, she was attacked by Team Plasma grunts who pressured her to release her pokemon, to which she refused.
However, her Absol, Miracle, went turncoat, verbally and physically attacking her former teammates before leaving with the Plasmas, as she had harbored a deep hate toward her trainer since day one.
To this day, Team Plasma and her Absol remain rather touchy subjects.

After taking a short hiatus, Jo traveled Almia in order to train as a Pokemon Ranger.
Some time after graduating, she came across advertisements about the Ohana Islands, host of a Battle Frontier run by someone she recognized as UBF10 finalist Taz Saints.
She took a break from her Ranger duties and made her way to the Ohana Islands for vacation.
Upon she learned about the BFCC, she made her way to the Squirtle Bay HQ and requested to be stationed at the islands, where she could both continue her responsibilities as a Ranger and participate in the tournament.


:bulletorange: POKEMON
Refs of each mon will be added if I'm crazy. xD
Highlighted moves in the app are their favorite/most used moves. Just for reference. ^^


Rai
Lucario | M | Expert Belt
loyal | brave | strong-willed


Formerly the 2iC, he is both the leader of the team when Jo is unavailable and her bodyguard.
He is usually peaceful, but he won't hesitate to pull the blades on you if you prove to be a threat to his teammates or trainer.

Cho
Gallade | M | Wise Glasses
naive | cheerful | enthusiastic


Cho originally wanted to evolve into a Gardevoir, but in the end, he chose to evolve into a Gallade just to prove to his sister that he could.
His move set raises the eyebrows of more strategic trainers, but he's working hard to live up to his name as a Gallade all the same.

Fang
Luxray | M | none
mischievous | loud | reckless


Fang is the team's prankster.
Be it Discharging in your direction or suddenly popping up with Scary Face, it's better if you watch your back around him.
He used to prank Rai back when he was a Riolu when the opportunity arose, but he grew to respect him.
When Cho came along, he became his next victim until they realized their shared love for mischief making.
Although he has toned it down since his Shinx days, his bite still makes people cry for their mommies - after all, Jo didn't dub him "Fang" for nothing!

Tanaba
Altaria | F | Dragon Fang
vain | sarcastic | short-tempered


Tired of being called a useless ball of fluff behind her back, Tanaba surprised Jo and her pokemon by volunteering to help out on Jo's Ranger missions.
Albeit somewhat unreliable, Jo sometimes uses her to scout. Her ego is still as large as ever, perhaps even larger after learning Cotton Guard from Jo's Whimsicott.
She uses it even out of battle to keep herself in top fluffy condition.
She is easily offended, so it would be best refrain from provoking her if you do not wish to be Fire Blasted to a crisp.

Meypha
Sawsbuck | F | Big Root
philosophical | observant | serene


Meypha is one of Jo's newest additions.
She prefers to be alone and is often seen deep in thought.
Nevertheless, she sometimes acts as the team's counselor, lending an ear and giving advice when needed.

Starr
Floatzel | M | Leftovers
adventurous | suave | happy-go-lucky


Named after the unusual mark on his forehead, Starr really knows how to have fun in the sun.
He was undoubtedly the most enthusiastic of the group upon hearing that the team was headed for a tropical island.
Aside from being a total bro, he is a rather innovative individual - recently, he figured out how to take humans and non-Water typed Pokemon underwater by forming an air bubble with Protect, which proved to be a useful skill.

Mirage
Zorua | M | none
quiet | sensitive | shy


Mirage is actually a wild Zorua, but he took a liking to the Ranger after being found by her, so she lets him tag along.
Unlike the majority of his species, he prefers to stay quietly by Jo's side as opposed to causing mischief.
He communicates through mental images and memories.

Trivia:
Any information that doesn't quite fit up there will be added here.
- Rai is pronounced like "wry." His name came from the misspelled version of Riolu.
- He also happens to be the shortest in the team. Hm.
- Tanaba's name comes from the Chinese dub version of Altaria (七夕青鳥or chi-shi-ching-niao) and the Japanese adaption of the Chinese holiday mentioned in its name (七夕, "Tanabata" in Japanese).
- It is unknown where the bead Mirage keeps with him is from, but Jo's coworkers assume that he is an orphan and that the bead was dropped by one of his parents.
- Meypha's name comes from the Chinese plum flower (梅花 ,pronounced "may-hwa"). Since it flowers in winter, it has come to symbolize strong spirit in Chinese culture.
- The markings on Meypha's head are inspired by 雲鬢 (pronounced yun-bing), a popular way to style hair among Chinese women in ancient China. (Refer to the wisps of hair hanging down in this picture)Apparently, it's also a phrase used to describe a young and pretty girl.
- Her Big Root is ginger, a common ingredient in Chinese cuisine (I swear I'm done with the Chinese influences. xD)

I used Paint Tool SAI for the individual illustrations, and Photoshop CS4 for putting everything together.

Oh snap! I din't realize it was you... snow point for the win right?
i just resigned after round 2 last year - don't know why actually i could have continued.
but this time im going strong here and in the other one.
How far did you go?
can't wait to see Joanna too! Good luck and i see improvement on you too
very excited to see how it will come up!

Hehe, I've been pretty inactive since I dropped out of round three, anyway, so no hard feelings. xD
I'm not going to join the main tournament of BFOI Y2 since I have too much on my hands at the moment. D:
I'll be cheering for you, though - I bet you'll go further than your UBF run. ^^

oh ok then
i kinda understand, next month i start my six month internship, but the truth is they give plenty of time to draw and ill try not to live everything for the last moment. and hopefully use flash again it was so much fun once i figured how to do it.
it's not like im going for the win but i want to make something cool out of it and want to try to go as far as i could and if i go better to be eliminated rather than quit again ahaha

Ah, that's good to hear. ^^
I get home pretty late and barely have time for sleep, haha...xD

Flash is magical; I hope to get myself a copy someday ;;

Hehe, it feels better to be eliminated because you tried your best and not because you didn't manage your time well.
Good luck! ^^/

Very nice app! Sleek and colourful! :)
It is interesting how Ciole used to have an Absol and Cogito used to have an Altaria.
And the latter would probably be hysterically jealous over Meypha.

Hmm...looking back at Cogito's app, it looks like they're not that different than I initially thought.
Now that you mention that, I can totally see them staring at each other with jelly looks. xD
