Team TropicTreble Application by Bowtiefoxin Team TropicTreble Application by Bowtiefoxin
Since PMDE closed I want to join this group instead (replacing my old team that wasn't that old ;w; they might make an appearance but I'll be using these guys now) I wanted to try for some pokemon that were a little further out of my comfort, and now I'm in love with both XDD

Wilbur
Nicknames: Will, Sir (whenever Servant actually speaks)
Age: Young Teen
Backstory:
Wilbur is a bit of a tsundre (no idea if i spelt it right but it means tough on the outside, soft on the inside). At first glance he'd seem pretty selfish, lazy and self-centred. If he wants something, he wants it and has to have it. He has quite a few trust issues with new people, maybe one of the reasons he made the lotad his "slave". It probably makes him feel safer, being in charge like that and being on top. Because of his trust issues he doesn't let anyone do anything for him except for Slave, but because of this it makes it seem like he's forcing a lot of work onto the poor pokemon with a mean intention. He doesn't like being put down or pushed around, even if he doesn't show it he gets easily hurt, but instead of getting sad it makes him very irritated and angry, more likely to push around "Servant", or in turn tease him. Don't ask this guy any questions about maths, you're almost certainly going to get a wrong answer, he doesn't seem to have any grasp of it whatsoever. His maths however is nowhere near as bad as his English, barely being able to read he hates showing this weakness and often makes Servant read signs and things for him. If confronted he will often deny that he can't read. He has great accuracy and he's fast, strength is a little less than average and he is definitely not a people person. He aspires to be a great pokemon team, but doesn't quite grasp the concept of team work or equality yet.

After leaving home he realised walking was far more tiring than he though, craving a rest he stopped at a pond. He noticed a number of lilypads moving and a lotad rose from the water, offering a ride across. Wilbur agreed and climbed on, however when they arrived at the other end Wilbur ordered the poor lotad to continue onwards. For some reason the Lotad complied and after a short distance Wilbur announced they would be a team. Again, the Lotad didn't seem bothered. The Lotad didn't seem very fond of speaking and never actually told Wilbur his name, not wanting to ask Wilbur began calling the Lotad "Servant". Servant never corrected the Aipom and so the name will stick until he gathers the courage to correct him.

???
Nicknames: Servant
Age: Young Teen
Backstory:
Servant is a fairly quite and docile creature. He doesn't like being pushed around too much but actually feels that this aipom is the first excitement he's had in a while and tolerates. The pond he was living in had always been fairly dull, the only adventure was ferrying pokemon from one side to the other. He seems to be fairly close to evolution and it will be quite interesting to see what happens to his and Wilburs relationship when that finally happens. In battle his moves are mainly used to aid Wilbur, blurring vision of the other pokemon giving him a chance to get a good shot. Much of the time he acts as a personal ferry for Wilbur and spends much of his day carrying out various tasks for him.

He doesn't seem down about his whole situation, for the moment he doesn't mind it too much but hopes that at some point Wilbur will stop treating him like a personal servant and more like a team mate.

OMFG I KNOW RIGHT? I love that little Lotad XD :heart: And Wilbur was scaring me because of his resemblance to a teletubby XD But I changed my style of drawing him a little so I'm not scared anymore.

Haha, yes XD Hopefully it'll smooth out. Probably cause most people want their team to actually be a "team" XD
