Name : Joseph (Joey, but he'll never let you call him that) Sarque
Age : 17
Height : 6'1''
Weight : 172 lbs

Level 1 Normal Ace / Ace Trainer

Joseph is a member of the prestigious and powerful Sarque family. Or rather, he was. His family was always one to hate Trainers. They manufactured Pokeballs, Potions, the works. As such, Joseph's parents looked down on Trainers, saw them as trash, people incapable of creating things by their own two hands. Trainers were seen as second class citizens, inferior to those with steady jobs and large paychecks. An odd prerogative, but one that stayed.

The only problem was Joseph was so enthralled with Pokemon battles. He would watch them for hours, trying to understand every minutia of the battles. Over time he began to understand them, and how they worked. He was good at everything he attempted, and planned to become a Trainer from a young age. For years he trained in secret, using a Rattata that he had caught in the cellar. The two were the best of friends. When the Rattata evolved, it was one of the happiest days of Joseph's life. When his 17th birthday began to near, Joseph began to formulate plans to escape and become a trainer. He didn't want to sell Potions and live as a business man; he wanted to travel, to battle, to become the very best, like no-one ever was.

As the fates would have it though, Joseph had placed his trust in the wrong people. A maid that had been a part of his endeavor ratted him out to his parents (getting a nice promotion in the process), resulting in them finding out about his secret. The retaliation was swift and severe. The Raticate, dubbed "Buddy" by a much younger Joseph, was euthanized unceremoniously. Joseph was placed under house arrest, and wasn't going to be leaving any time soon.

As the years passed, it became more and more obvious that Joseph wasn't going to give up on his foolish dream of becoming the best Pokemon Trainer in the world. Grudgingly, bit by bit, Joseph began to wear on his parents' resolve, culminating in Joseph being permitted to attend The Pokemon Academy. After all, if their son was going to be a failure, he was going to be a successful failure, as oxymoronic as it sounds. And who knows? Maybe a prolific Sarque Trainer could have some positive PR effects.

Without wasting any time Joseph was outfitted in the best gear money could buy, given a perfectly bred Meowth and sent on his way. Despite all the help from his family, Joseph still hates them; after all, they took his first friend before they decided to change their mind. Joseph will become the best, but his family isn't going to be the reason why. He'll study longer, trainer harder and be better than anybody else; anything less than that would be dishonorable to Buddy's memory. Bates, while an excellent companion, just can't replace the old Raticate in Joseph's heart, try as the cat might.


At least he got to keep the suit when he was disowned.
