Name: Ryu Tokami
Age: 13
Hometown: Cherrygrove City, Johto. He moved to Petropolis at 8 because his father got a new job.

Appearance: Ryu's family is Japanese, so he has many of the stereotypical racial traits of a Japanese person. His skin is very pale, and he has thin, black hair, almost shoulder length. His hair is usual parted a bit on one side so that he can actually see. His eyes are a dark grey, and seem very cold. He is about 5' 3" and very bony and thin. He almost never shows emotion, except when alone with his pokemon.
Ryu owns a collection of solid-colored, dark t-shirts, and he usually just wears one of them along with a pair of jeans. Most of his jeans are old and faded, but they still fit him almost perfectly, and they are all in good condition If it's really cold out Ryu will wear an old, black sweatshirt.
Personality: When Ryu was 9, his father died in an accident with the machines at his office. Since then Ryu has tried to avoid becoming emotionally attached to anyone. He usual tries to ignore people to get them to leave him alone, but that tactic has worked less and less as he got older. Despite the hardships that followed his father's untimely death, Ryu never turned to drugs or anything of that sort, he started drawing. That is the only thing he has opened up about in conversation over the past four years, but the second another topic is mentioned he will clam back up. He feels attachment to his pokemon, but he is cold and indifferent towards human beings.

Biography: Ryu spent his childhood growing up in Cherrygrove, where his parents taught him about their culture. He would spend his free time playing with the other children, running through the woods, wading into the stream, going on an annual trip to the Ruins of Alph, with adult supervision of course. But as they got older, the other children spent more time pestering pokemon trainers, especially the local gym leader. That left Ryu to sit and watch wild pokemon by himself.
One day there was a commotion outside one of the empty houses in town, there was a new family moving in! They had a little girl named Miyumi, who quickly became best friends with Ryu. When Ryu discovered that he was moving to Furoh, he immeadiately told Miyumi. She promised him it would be fine, and that they'd send him lots of letters. A year later, Ryu father was dead, any amount of comfort from his old friend would've had a huge impact, but not a single letter had come.
Ryu decided then, at the young age of nine, to never get attached to a human again, but he thought that a pokemon would never let you down. He looked forward to his birthday more than ever. His tenth birthday came and went, no pokemon, no cake, no party, all he got was anew pair of socks. There wasn't enough money to spare for a pokemon was what Ryu's mother told him, but he was determined. Ryu began doing odd gods for their neighbors, taking out trash, cleaning windows, taking pokemon out to get exercise. Almost a year later, he had saved up enough for a pokeball, a single pokeball.
Ryu was smart though, he didn't just throw it at the first pokemon he saw, he bided his time. Eventually, he found a female nidoran, one weaker than all the others, but it was a pokemon nonetheless. Ryu befriended the nidoran, feeding it, playing with it, and defending it from the larger pokemon. Before long, it wanted to come with him, and it didn't even try to escape from its pokeball.
After that day, everything began to fall into place. Ryu and the nidoran, newly christened "Miyumi," after Ryu's childhood friend, managed to win many pokemon battles, and Ryu's mother got a promotion. Soon, Ryu could afford to set out on a journey, so he did. He stocked up on items and set out, waving goodbye to his mother as he went. Just after making it out of town, he encountered a Tailow, capturing it before moving on.

1. Murkrow isn't a starter. You'll have to wait to catch it within an RP.

2. Technically, the appearance has everything, but I'd like to see more elaboration. You have the bare minimum, but I'd like you to go beyond that. Refer to the examples in the Profile thread.

Oh, sorry I thought only the first pokemon had to actually be on the list.

Edited my profile. I rewrote the appearance section, changed the murkrow to a taillow, and gave it one more level, added Berry Pouch to his item list, and added his pokemon's personalities, moves, and abilities. Is it okay now?

Wasn't aware of the edit until just now.

Approved. Go post in the Current Levels thread. Have fun!
