Hi! I'm back with pokemon trainers!
I decided to make Trixie first because of the new Gameloft app icon...
Also, I like that she has clothing in pony version, which helps when designing this one.
Trixie is a very proud trainer. She doesn't take losing too well, so she avoids battling as much as she can, but when asked, says she's a veteran who's close to reaching the pokemon league. She mainly travels around doing "presentations" with her pokemon, deeming then "the most great and powerful in the world", etc. They're mostly only slightly above average, so she "cheats" to fool the public.
Ursa Minor was Trixie's first pokemon. Even as a brand new beginner, she believed herself to be so strong and powerful she could capture a pokemon with her bare hands, and went for this cubchoo she found. It was of course too much for her, but as she was close to be frozen, another trainer named Twilight intervened and saved her, capturing the pokemon for her. She declared to have hated Twilight ever since, but kept Ursa as her main pokemon, for some reason.
Illusionist is Trixie's show main piece, often appearing as other pokemon, sometimes even legendaries, as she gathers people to tell how she had an"epic adventure to capture this wonderful (fake) Darkrai", etc. It sometimes transforms back accidentally in the middle of the story, and they have to run for it.
Prankster, just like its trainer, is very proud and loves to be praised. It was the first pokemon Trixie captured herself, when it was a purrloin. It was a hard battle because it didn't want to stay inside the ball, and it took Trixie 25 normal pokeballs t catch it.
Buster was a lot of flamboyant moves and it's probably one of her strongest pokemon, but it rarely fights fair, so she isn't even aware of its real capacities.
Smoke has the main role of making Trixie's "grand entrances", with smokescreen. It also uses it to hide any mistakes they might make, and, of course, helps to run away when people get furious. When battling, it used this move a lot and then self-destructs.
Mirrors works together with Smoke, using mirror shot to help distract and dazzle the public. Together, they represent the essence of Trixie's current lifestyle.
That's it! I think that after Sunset and the CMC, I'll go for the elite 4. I have Cadance, Shining Armor and Zecora. Any suggestions for the 4th member?
