twenty two female Nightshade Wannabe

Dakota is a short, lanky girl of 5'2" and approximately 100lbs. She has pale skin lightly speckled with freckles and dark blue eyes. She wears dark make up around her eyes and a light lip gloss. Her hair, for the moment, is blonde with purple tips, heavily layered and down past her shoulders. Her right nostril is pierced with a ring, her ears are gauged, and she has her tongue and naval pierced as well. A full sleeve tattoo stretches the length of her right arm consisting of various images and shapes, and a few others here and there. Her style could be considered punk but she doesn't like labels, she feels her style is just that: hers. She often wears sleeveless shirts and shorts, a choker of sorts, and combat boots that reach up to her knees. There are often chains, clips, and zippers on her attire.
Dakota has a lot on her mind most of the time. She is quiet, straight-forward, and a little bossy. It is quite difficult to get her to smile unless it's a mischievous one, and even then it's usually just a smirk. Her hard exterior often repels people, she always looks pissed off or like she wants to be left alone, even though she doesn't. Once you earn her trust, she's the best friend you'll ever have. She's loyal, trustworthy, and has your back. Breaking through her protective shell isn't easy, though. She never wants to talk about her past, which makes keeping a good conversation going with someone a little tricky. She's a night owl, likes to be out under the moonlight and hates getting up early. She seems lost, as if she doesn't know who she really is yet, or what she's looking for.
She was born in Dewford Town in the Hoenn region, where the community was small and there wasn't a whole lot to do there. Like a working dog becoming destructive when it doesn't get enough exercise, she got into a lot of trouble as a child simply because there was "nothing better to do." She had a hard time making friends in school, and spent more time in the detention office than in class. She was an only child and her parents were often in the city at work, so she was passed around to different baby sitters or family members. As soon as she was of age, she left the tiny island town and traveled Hoenn. She found herself in Lilycove City quickly making the wrong type of friends. There was a girl that caught her attention, who was a member of Team Aqua. They became very close, and Dakota joined Team Aqua in an attempt to win her heart. Things didn't work out, she had her heart broken, and she ended up leaving (she doesn't like to talk about it, so don't ask). She took the next ship and left Hoenn altogether, looking for a fresh start.

She heard some of the members of Team Aqua talking about a new up-and-coming crime syndicate in the Eden region. They thought it was called Nightshade, and they were rivaling all criminal groups everywhere. Out of spite, Dakota thought she might head to Eden and investigate this new group, join its members, and climb up the rankings. Maybe she could show her ex what she was missing out on.

So she did. She set out for Eden with only Samara and her camping gear. She doesn't live in any particular place in Eden, because she's constantly on the move. Searching for any information she can find about Nightshade, she finds herself hanging out in Ironwood City most of the time. Now that she's been there a while she's even made a few new friends. Currently, she has a handful of really good leads, but hasn't quite managed to get into the gang yet.
Dakota spends her free time scribbling in a sketchbook, blasting heavy metal music on her headphones, and finding parties or clubs to go to. Her birthday is August 21st.

pokémon team

Haunter Female Levitate
Samara first came to Dakota as a wee little Ghastly the first night she decided to leave Hoenn. Dakota had just split up with her girlfriend from Team Aqua, and since she couldn't run home, she found a dark alley in Lilycove to hide. Ghastly came upon the crying girl and instead of scaring her like she usually did to strangers in her alley, she tried to cheer the trainer up with its ghostly tricks. The Ghastly got Dakota's mind off her troubles and they've been friends since. Right before Dakota came to Eden, her Ghastly evolved into Haunter after some serious battling on the ship. Together, they found their new start in Eden.

Moves: Shadow Punch, Hypnosis, Lick, Mean Look, Sucker Punch, Payback, Shadow Ball, Dark Pulse, Dream Eater, Nightmare

TM Moves: Sludge Bomb, Thunderbolt
MT Moves: Fire Punch, Ice Punch

Battle Credits

Talonflame Female Flame Body
Also known as "Boo," Dakota came across this sweet little girl as a Fletchling in the Gingko Mountains, doing backflips and frontflips and all sorts of flips. Dakota had stopped to rest when the little bird fell into a nearby bush. After a tough battle she captured her, and has focused on her training ever since. The two became instant friends, and Dakota loves having her out and about as she walks. The little bird loved showing off her moves, both in flight and in fire. She evolved after some hefty training in the mountains shortly after joining Dakota's team, and then again after a few battles with one of Dakota's close friends. Now, she's a strong Talonflame, and makes no mistakes during flight. She's rather quick, and is currently one of Dakota's best pokémon.

Alolan Marowak Male Lightning Rod
This lonely little Cubone was found by Dakota when she first came to Eden. He had been abandoned by his trainer and left at the nearest pokémon center. She has no information about his past, lineage, or scars. He is quiet, shy, and often acts like a rotten toddler that doesn't get his way. He adores Dakota though, for some reason, and the two make a great team. Since she has a somewhat dark past, they seem to bond over how life hasn't gone their way. It wasn't until he evolved that Dakota got more information about his past, as he didn't end up an average Marowak. He was in fact, an Alolan Marowak, which meant his original trainer must have had no idea. Dakota was just thankful she was in the right place at the right time and could help him. Now, he's one of her best fighters.

Shiny Froslass Female Inner Focus
Dakota came across this unusually colored Snorunt huddled against some boulders high up in the Gingko Mountains. It was shivering, though Dakota wasn't sure why because it wasn't that cold out. Her Litwick was out with her, and they ended up sitting next to the Snorunt and talking to it. It eventually quit shivering, and Dakota realized it was trembling because it was afraid. They befriended the little thing and it joined her team.

TM Moves: Psychic, Thunder, Aurora Veil
MT Moves: Water Pulse, Ice Punch, Signal Beam

Phantump Male Natural Cure
Dakota came across this shy, scared little guy while out in asphodel meadows with Adrian. She was injured and he had just tripped her, so she yelled at him and startled the hiding Phantump nearby. For whatever reason, Dakota is still unsure to this day, Adrian took to the Phantump immediately. She had never seen him be gentle or kind towards another pokémon like this. After some discussion, they welcomed the Phantump to their group. He is extremely shy and insecure, and Dakota hopes that with their help he'll grow stronger and more confident. Adrian took him in as one of his own, and will protect him with everything he has. They are inseparable.

TM Moves: Psychic, Shadow Ball

Mimikyu Female Disguise
This shy, disturbed little gal was following Dakota in and out of the alleyways in Ironwood City. Once Dakota and Samara caught sight of her, she bolted, but they were able to chase her down. She was terrified, hiding behind a heap of garbage bags, but Dakota fed her some treats and spent the night in the alley with her. She talked to her all night, and eventually the Mimikyu crawled out from hiding and fell asleep in her lap. They've been inseparable since. Ciará is extremely shy but once she's comfortable with you, she opens up.

Cyndaquil Male Blaze
Dakota picked up Kai from a breeder, freshly hatched out of his egg. He grew up well socialized and quite the curious little bugger. He and Adrian have become best buddies, often instigating little play fights with each other, which embarrasses Dakota so they continue to do it. He loves belly scratches, red berries, and rolling around in the dirt.

TM Moves: Will-O-Wisp

Egg Moves: Howl, Nature Power, Foresight, Reversal, Quick Attack, Fury Swipes, Covet, Double Kick, Extrasensory, Crush Claw, Thrash, Double Edge, Flare Blitz

Battle Credits

Litwick Female Flash Fire
This feisty little Litwick joined Dakota's team in Ironwood City. She was lost and huddled in the corner of an alley, and luckily Samara spotted her fading flame as they walked by. Dakota took her in and kept her safe from the rain. Not having anywhere else to go, the Litwick stayed with Dakota and Samara. She's fun and excitable, but obedient.

Moves: Ember, Astonish, Minimize, Smog, Fire Spin, Confuse Ray, Night Shade, Will-O-Wisp, Imprison, Memento, Curse, Pain Split

TM Moves: Theif

Shiny Eevee Female Adaptability
This shy little creature was sick and cold when Dakota found her. After bringing her to the nearest pokémon center and getting her taken care of, Dakota attempted to let her go back into the wild. The Eevee was so grateful for her kindness she followed her back into town. Dakota wasn't aware of her slightly off color until much later. Named after Dakota's mother, Elena wants nothing more than to cuddle and give all the love she can give. Oh, and eat poffins.

Moves: Covet, Helping Hand, Growl, Tackle, Tail Whip, Sand Attack, Baby-Doll Eyes, Quick Attack, Bite, Swift, Refresh, Charm, Baton Pass, Trump Card

TM Moves: Rest
Egg Moves: Wish, Endure, Flail, Detect, Curse, Yawn, Tickle, Captivate, Covet, Fake Tears, Synchronise, Stored Power

Dusclops Male Pressure
Dakota and her team came across this sweet, gentle Dusclops while out in Asphodel Meadows. At first he was shy and defensive but after some coaxing from Samara, he joined them for the rest of their walk. He was quite the outsider in the wild, and now he's part of a team and a family. Much happier now, he's quite friendly and quite playful. He particularly likes Dakota and Samara, often trying to be included in everything they do. Dakota likes him, and rolls her eyes at his cravings for her attention. Samara becomes a little jealous if he steals too much attention.

Moves: Shadow Punch, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, Gravity, Bind, Leer, Night Shade, Disable, Astonish, Foresight, Shadow Sneak, Pursuit, Will-O-Wisp, Confuse Ray, Curse, Hex, Shadow Ball, Mean Look, Payback

TM Moves: Psychic, Dark Pulse

Absol Female Super Luck
Rose came from a friend. Her name came from the deep red color of her eyes. Dakota is still getting to know her, but knows she's had a rough past and tries not to take her bad behavior personally. She reminds Dakota of herself, in a way. Rose is quiet, and barely ever speaks. Most of the time she acts like she hates being where she is and the people or pokémon around her. Even if that's the case, she doesn't turn away when Dakota scratches her ears or brushes the long fur in her face and around her neck.

Moves: Scratch, Feint, Leer, Quick Attack, Pursuit, Taunt, Bite, Double Team, Swords Dance, Detect, Me First, Perish Song

TM Moves: Brutal Swing
Egg Moves: Baton Pass, Feint Attack, Double-Edge, Magic Coat, Curse, Mean Look, Zen Headbutt, Punishment, Sucker Punch, Assurance, Me First, Megahorn, Hex, Perish Song, Play Rough

Larvitar Female Guts
Dakota received this fun loving girl in a trade. She was rescued from a poachers trap by a ranger, and was so thankful for his services she followed him home. She's sweet, but craves a lot of attention and is somewhat high-maintenance. Dakota would avoid a human that acted like her at all costs, but because she's a short stubby rock pokémon Dakota kind of likes her. Plus, she can be rather humorous at time, making a fool of herself when her demand for attention backfires. She also seems to have a crush on Adrian, which Dakota finds amusing as it always embarrasses him.

Moves: Bite, Leer, Sandstorm, Screech, Scary Face, Payback

TM Moves: Rock Tomb

Sableye Female Keen Eye
Gabi for short. This monstrous little misfit caused quite a scene during the Harvest Festival. It was leaping between visitors, stealing pieces of candy and treats from their hands and scurrying away. With Samara's help, her and Dakota were able to track her down and capture her. She is quite the handful, often disobeying anytime she can. However, if Dakota has something sweet in her hands, she'll obey wholeheartedly. Dakota doesn't let her out much, in fear she might run off, but she plans to work with her and train her for battles. Right now, she only comes out to play indoors where she can't escape (even though she still tries).

Moves: Leer, Scratch, Foresight, Night Shade, Astonish, Fury Swipes, Detect, Shadow Sneak, Feint Attack, Fake Out, Punishment, Confuse Ray, Quash, Mean Look

TM Moves: Snarl
Egg Moves: Sucker Punch

Shiny Vulpix Female Flash Fire
Named after a Roman goddess of fire. Just like all the misfit pokémon Dakota seems to come across, this little Vulpix was a spitfire from day one... literally. She was nestled in the corner of an alley spitting fire at anyone that came close to her. No one seemed to be interested in her so Dakota took the initiative and tried to help her. With Adrian's help, they were able to convince her to come out from the corner. Dakota took her in, hoping to socialize her more and get her used to people. She's made progress, but not much. Vesta is feisty, and doesn't hesitate to speak her mind. She is very guarded, and earning her trust is near impossible. Dakota's not even sure she trusts her own trainer. Regardless, they are working together and do get along occasionally.

Moves: Ember, Tail Whip, Roar, Baby-Doll Eyes, Quick Attack, Confuse Ray, Fire Spin, Payback, Will-O-Wisp, Feint Attack, Safeguard, Imprison, Grudge, Captivate

TM Moves: Dark Pulse
Egg Moves: Extrasensory, Spite, Hex, Feint Attack, Captivate, Howl, Secret Power, Flail, Tail Slap

Alolan Vulpix Female Snow Cloak
Adopted Dec 2017
Named after a snow goddess in Greek mythology. Dakota adopted this sweet darling from a breeder. It was the last Alolan Vulpix they had, and of course it was the runt. Something told Dakota this little girl would be quite powerful though, so she adopted her. Her other Vulpix, Vesta, took to her instantly. The two are now inseparable sisters.

Moves: Powder Snow, Tail Whip, Roar, Baby-Doll Eyes, Ice Shard, Confuse Ray, Icy Wind, Payback, Mist, Feint Attack, Hex, Aurora Beam, Extrasensory, Safeguard, Ice Beam, Imprison, Grudge, Captivate, Sheer Cold

TM Moves: Dark Pulse, Frost Breath
MT Moves: Aqua Tail, Zen Headbutt

Houndour Female Early Bird
Dakota received Sienna as a trade offering for her Deino. Dakota didn't hesitate to take the offer, mostly wanting to get rid of the Deino as quickly as possible. The little Houndour was shy at first, but has long since become comfortable with her trainer. She earned the name Sienna because of her burnt brown fur on her muzzle and chest. Sienna keeps Dakota from sleeping in... ever. She also demands attention every single day, and gets very upset if she's left in her pokémon for too long. She loves to play, battle, and everything in between.

Moves: Leer, Ember, Howl, Smog, Roar, Bite, Oder Sleuth, Beat Up, Feint Attack, Embargo, Nasty Plot

TM Moves: Flame Charge
Egg Moves: Beat Up, Fire Fang, Nasty Plot

Gothorita Female Competitive
Dakota came across this gentle creature one night in Ironwood during her alley runs. This Gothorita was in the middle of arranging pebbles and stones to match the stars above so she could read what they had to say. Dakota managed to keep a man with a garbage bag from interrupting, and because of that the Gothorita became curious of her. According to the stars, Dakota was about to face some real trouble, so the Gothorita offered to join her and help her out. Dakota accepted, happy for the help but also anxious about what was to come.

Moves: Pound, Confusion, Tickle, Play Nice, Fake Tears, Double Slap, Psybeam, Embargo, Feint Attack, Psyshock, Flatter, Heal Block, Psychic, Telekinesis, Charm, Magic Room

TM Moves: Protect, Dark Pulse
MT Moves: Shock Wave, Trick

Shiny Seviper Female Shed Skin
Named after the Goddess of the Underworld, this terrifying snake is just that. She is the most evil, untrustworthy pokémon Dakota has ever had to deal with. The only reason why she ended up with her in the first place was because she lost a bet. Dakota tries very hard to train her and teach her manners, and sometimes Persephone gives her some false hope and behaves... but it doesn't last long. Dakota's not sure what her plans are yet, but she's not giving up.

Moves: Wrap, Swagger, Bite, Lick, Poison Tail, Feint, Screech, Glare, Poison Fang, Venom Drench, Gastro Acid, Haze, Swords Dance, Coil, Wring Out
