So, a huge amount of my time recently has been taken up by Pokémon Moon. This, I'm sure, surprises nobody. But hey, I'm almost done with finals for my first semester of college so why not immortalize my team in my gallery! We have, in order from left to right and top to bottom:
Deadeye Rob (Decidueye) - Once a common Rowlet, then later a common Dartrix, something mysterious happened as he evolved to his final form. When he emerged from the light he somehow had gained a scar over his left eye and odd, otherworldly powers. What happened in that light is shrouded in mystery, even to his trainer.
Tank, the Unyielding (Snorlax) - Nobody knew where an enigmatic Munchlax appeared from, holding a strange crystal. He was nevertheless taken in by a kind trainer, and took part in adventures side-by-side with Deadeye Rob from the very beginning of their journey. Eventually he became the one who emerged when a true display of endurance was necessary, as he has proven himself to be nigh unkillable.
Lady Flood (Araquanid) - Bringer of the hive, herald of the outer god, this dark mistress is, through some unknown means, simultaneously adorable and terrifying to all who do not stand in her line of fire. Anything that does, she washes away in a river of death. Her discovery as a small Dewpider is now known to have been foreshadowing the arrival of something beyond comprehension, and though she regards her trainer with respect and friendship, this otherworldly entity seems to be her true master.
Master Teddy (Bewear) - The powerhouse of the team, Master Teddy spent his years as a Stufful perfecting the hug-based fighting technique passed down his family line for generations. While he may be a lover, not a fighter, that does not make him any less deadly. He owes his trainer a life-debt after coming inches away from his demise.
DJ 9-Volt (Vikavolt) - The greatest, most bass-droppingest party master in all of Alola, DJ 9-Volt's career didn't take off until he first evolved into a Charjabug. While this was his start of greatness, it was still a rough and fragile career for him. Once he evolved into his final form however, his place as the party king of Alola was truly cemented. Though he is not arrogant, and attributes his success to the kind trainer that first discovered his talents as a young Grubbin.
Grace XXI (Pronounced 21, not the 21st) (Mimikyu) - A mysterious, otherworldly being, Grace XXI is, by her own admission, an outer god of unfathomable power and incomprehensible form. Hearing her true name incites madness in the weak-minded, so she prefers to go by Grace. She is the enigmatic force that Lady Flood foretold, and she is the herald's true master, though she is very casual and nice since she decided to try out this whole "mortality" thing she's been hearing so much about. When offered the chance at adventure in the mortal world by an ordinary trainer, she jumped at the opportunity, and they became fast friends.
Yes, I gave them all ridiculous backstories to go with their names. Don't judge me, it's fun. And yes, Arch is wearing an Organization XIII coat, only it's blue. It looks awesome and I will have one someday.
