Platinum League-Research Associate Katie Picture

ID Number: 00777
Trainer Status: Active
Trainer Type: Research Associate

Name: Katie Kenyon
Gender: Female
Age: 25
Height: 5’ 3”
Weight: 140 lbs
Nature: Quiet
Hometown: Pallet Town, Kanto Region
Current Location: Nacrene City, Unova Region
Personality: Katie is even-tempered to such a degree that even family and friends do not know where the line is with her. Even if the line is crossed with her, only a small change of expression and tone is all there is as an indication. Katie is also rather quiet and soft-spoken, especially around those that she doesn’t know well. She will still smile and be polite while engaging in conversation though, even if it is a little one-sided on her part, as she prefers to listen rather than speak. On conversation topics in which she is interested or where there is a shared interest, she is much more enthusiastic and involved. When around those that she does know well, Katie is the complete opposite of her usual self. She is verbally and physically affectionate to those select few, trading words with them with boisterous zeal and mischievous intent. It is often difficult for those outside this small circle to believe that the same person is capable of this.

History: Katie is the only child of a single mother who raised her in a small house where she was surrounded by family on all sides. While she was growing up her mother read her all of the different myths and legends of the region, as well as those of the various regions both near and far from her home. Katie developed an avid love of mythology as she grew, and by asking for books instead of toys as gifts, built up an impressive collection of material, which she would pore over when ever there was a spare moment. Even at such a young age she knew that what she wanted to do in life was to travel the world and learn more about the cultures and creatures that inspired the myths and legends she so loved. When she came of age her mother gave her a present that she said would be able to help her achieve her dreams. Opening the present revealed a pair of ruby red eyes belonging to a Squirtle with a shell that didn’t quite seem to fit. Katie named him after his most prominent feature and when she acquired her license the day after meeting him, they set out on the road by each other’s side as they still are to this day. Katie has traveled near and far since then, adding even more material to her collection along the way. She continued with her education as she went through the continental regions and island chains, attending both physical and online courses depending on where she was. After earning a degree in classical studies with a specialization in civilizations and cultures, she traveled back to the distant Unova Region and settled down in Nacrene City, where she now works as a Research Associate at the Nacrene City Museum under Museum Director Lenora and Head Researcher Hawes.

Pokemon

Name: Shell
Species: Blastoise
Gender: Male
Type: Water
Nature: Calm
Hold Item: None
Ability: Torrent
Attacks: Return-Hydro Pump-Earthquake-Ice Beam
Personality: Shell has a compassionate demeanor and a placid disposition which make him easy to approach and to confide in. He shares the knowledge and experience he’s gained over the years with the team; he tends to regard them as his own to look after, always keeping an eye and ear on them. Shell is the one they go to when they need advice or to settle disputes between members. He also enjoys sharing stories about all of the adventures he’s had so he’s more than willing to regale them when they ask.
History: Shell was given to Katie by her mother as a present on her 10th birthday. He has been by her side every step of the way since that day and the two of them have the kind of quiet, understanding relationship that doesn’t require talking or action to enjoy each other’s company. He has helped to train every member of the team from Kanto to Unova, watching his various charges learn and grow along the way with a certain sense of pride. Shell’s right ear has been torn to tatters and his carapace cracked from left shoulder to right hip by previous battles but they do not hinder him at all.

Name: Hickory
Species: Charizard
Gender: Male
Type: Fire/Flying
Nature: Docile
Hold Item: Charcoal (in pipe)
Ability: Blaze
Attacks: Flamethrower-Dig-Iron Tail-Seismic Toss
Personality: Hickory is intelligent and eloquent, polite and reserved. The spoken language is his best skill and a quiet tête-a-tête is his favorite activity. He will engage in conversation with any new individual he meets in an effort to learn more about where they came from and what they have experienced. Hickory is usually the individual who has to apologize and admonish when a certain two members of the team are causing trouble for those around them. When there is time for it he likes to lay in the sun and have a nice smoke in order to relax.
History: Hickory was given to Katie by Prof. Oak before she set out on her journey. His docile temperament led to him getting passed over, as he lacked the aggression and attitude that his kind are known for. Despite this he is fierce and formidable in battle, a real force to be reckoned with in his own right. Hickory has been on rotation between Prof. Elm-Juniper for years now and has finally been able to settle down in one place. Conversing with the residents of the house and yard has become a pleasant routine for him now.

Name: Sparks
Species: Raichu
Gender: Male
Type: Electric
Nature: Impish
Hold Item: Magnet
Ability: Static
Attacks: Thunderbolt-Brick Break-Mega Kick-Rollout
Personality: Sparks has a quick wit and a penchant for pranks which often lead him to trouble both inside and outside of the team. He does have a good heart though and he’s well aware of where the line is with each individual. Sparks is loyal to those he has come to care for and he will stay with them no matter what comes to pass. He will also tease them every step of the way, as he never lets an opportunity slip by him.
History: Sparks was always causing trouble for the members of his herd and was captured when he strayed far from them one day. Sparks and Venus have been attached at the hip since the day they met. The two are partners in crime together, causing trouble for all they come across. Sparks has been on rotation between Prof. Elm-Juniper for years now and has finally been able to settle down in one place. Spot is a favorite target of the both of them and they can usually be found pestering him. This leads to Shell having to mitigate between the three of them and Hickory to apologize to any who were caught in the crossfire.

Name: Venus
Species: Clefable
Gender: Female
Type: Normal
Nature: Sassy
Hold Item: Mind Plate (as earrings)
Ability: Cute Charm
Attacks: Strength-Psychic-Shock Wave-Meteor Mash
Personality: Venus is a sociable individual and an incorrigible flirt as well. She pays special consideration to her appearance and is always well groomed. In contrast to this image her favorite activities are those that test her mind and her skill. Venus will approach any challenge with determination and a resolve to complete it to the best of her ability.
History: Lacking the shy and timid demeanor of the rest of her kind, Venus was often away from her herd searching for treasures she could decorate her nest with. It was no real surprise when she was captured while out and about like this. Venus and Sparks have been attached at the hip since the day they met. The two are partners in crime together, causing trouble for all they come across. Venus has been on rotation between Prof. Elm-Juniper for years now and has finally been able to settle down in one place. Spot is a favorite target of the both of them and they can usually be found pestering him. This leads to Shell having to mitigate between the three of them and Hickory to apologize to any who were caught in the crossfire.


Name: Spot
Species: Ivysaur
Gender: Male
Type: Grass/Poison
Nature: Serious
Hold Item: EverStone
Ability: Overgrow
Attacks: Body Slam-Vine Whip-Sludge Bomb-Solar Beam
Personality: Spot is cantankerous and curmudgeonly in disposition, making him difficult to deal with even when he is in a good mood. Shell and Hickory are the only two he will tolerate in close proximity and for extended periods of time. He has still come to care for the rest of the team, even the pests Sparks and Venus regardless of what he says about them. Spot has a soft heart for plants and flowers so he can often be found tending to them where ever he happens to reside.
History: Spot was given to Katie by Prof. Oak through electronic transfer while she was in Vermillion City. Spot’s temperament didn’t lend him well to getting chosen, so he was placed with her instead. Spot has been on rotation between Prof. Elm-Juniper for years now and has finally been able to settle down in one place. He is a favorite target of Sparks and Venus and they can usually be found pestering him. Only Shell or Hickory are capable of calming him once he is riled up and even then it can take them quite some time to achieve a resolution. Spot likes to spend his quiet moments, few and far between though they are, tending to the garden in the yard.

Name: Nino
Species: Nidoking
Gender: Male
Type: Poison/Ground
Nature: Bold
Hold Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Poison Point
Attacks: Horn Attack-Rock Slide-Surf-Poison Jab
Personality: Nino is so boisterous and energetic that he has a tendency to forget his size and strength in his enthusiasm. This can lead to him causing chaos and destruction without really meaning to. Nino is a gentle giant though and would never hurt anyone intentionally. He is more than willing to throw his weight around when the situation calls for it though. Nino enjoys Sparks’ and Venus’ mischief and if not participating with them, then he is at the very least standing guard for them.
History: Nino was traded as a Nidorino from Turner for a Nidorina from Katie when Turner couldn’t handle him any longer. While he was not aggressive, he was full of energy, which made him difficult to train. Travel and battle helped to alleviate this but since he has been on rotation between Prof. Elm-Juniper, he’s been causing a raucous for them along the way without meaning to. Now that he’s settled down in one place and has familiar friends to interact with, Nino has been able to cut down on the damage he causes though not the trouble he happens to get into.
