Team TAZR Tumblr: [ Ask us questions! 8D ]

So....I finally finished the application after putting it off for several months. ._. I can't draw scarves properly. I already have ideas for like 2938742983 other teams so this one might not even be used. orz I'll just have some fun with this whenever I can, then.Cocoa
Nature/Characteristic: Quirky. Mischievous.
Attacks: Bounce, Attract, Surf, Mud Bomb
Cocoa is an eclectic Stunfisk. As an egg, he was snatched up by a hungry Skarmory who intended to feed her chicks a nutritious meal. While the Skarmory was flying to her nest, he ended up hatching and gave the steel bird Pokemon quite a shock with his Static ability. Cocoa was then dropped
on his head
to the ground near Pestilent Swamp, and thanks to his species' ability to endure abuse from heavy sumo wrestlers, survived the fall without a scratch.
A Politoad adopted him and raised him with her family and some other foster children. Because of his foster family, he picked up some interesting techniques such as Bounce, Surf, and Mud Bomb; because of his family's typing, he avoided learning electric attacks which may harm them. Why he chose to learn Attract, we will never know, but it seems to suit his Quirky nature. His Attract often confuses and startles the target Pokemon, to his amusement. Cocoa also frequently ends up getting stuck in high places after using Bounce. Hazelnut often has to get him out of trouble.
Cocoa is often seen with his "trollface" smile. He often does things out of the ordinary...playing pranks, and making other Pokemon feel uneasy. He also likes to dance to the sound of a PokeFlute, in a style he picked up after watching some Arboks....Hazelnut "Hazel"
Species: Emolga (shiny)
Nature/Characteristic: Brave. Highly curious.
Attacks: Electro Ball, Acrobatics, Agility, Baton Pass
Hazelnut was born to a wild Emolga mother, and a shiny Ditto who belonged to a greedy Pokemon Breeder. Her father's relationship with her mother was out of love, unlike the other....relationships his trainer got him into. When the trainer found out that his Ditto had been sneaking off to see his love and their newly hatched daughter, he captured the two Emolgas and tried to use Hazelnut's mother as part of the breeding program. Hazelnut was taken away from her mother and auctioned off at a young age. Her mother would later give birth to a couple of non-shiny Pokemon. The Pokemon Breeder, deeming them useless, disposed of her children. Hazelnut's mother fell into a deep depression, and died shortly after. Her father, who could not escape (a microchip was implanted into his body), would continue to sire more Pokemon while grieving the loss of his mate and his missing daughter. Most of his non-shiny children never had a chance to live because his trainer saw no value in them, and did not want an overpopulation to occur.
Hazelnut would continue to be auctioned off throughout her childhood. Being a shiny, Hazelnut was pampered by most of her trainers, who were overprotective, and would not let her see the outside world for fear that she might dirty her fur. Staying indoors did nothing to sate her curiosity. Tired of the constant grooming and yearning for adventure, she sought ways to escape.
At her most recent home, Hazelnut was able to befriend a Pelipper who delivered...suspicious packages...to her trainer everyday. She would climb up to the windowsill and chat with him. She wanted to learn how to fly, but could only succeed in gliding short distances. The Pelipper taught her Agility to make her gliding technique better, and she was able to modify his Aerial Ace technique to suit herself, which then became her Acrobatics technique. She managed to escape with her friend's help (he was very skilled in the smuggling business and carried her off in his beak), and was dropped off outside of Tao Woods.How they ended up in Tao Village...
Hazelnut met Cocoa while she was foraging for food near the border of Tao Woods and Pestilent Swamp. Being a curious Pokemon, she was intrigued by the strange Stunfisk. The two quickly became friends. Wanting to explore and take part in cool missions, Hazelnut decided to apply for the Rescuers Guild. Cocoa tagged along with her, since he was tired of waiting around in the swamp for unwary Pokemon to step on him and receive a shocking surprise. His pranks were starting to bore him.Trivia*
Hazelnut has a bigger tuft of hair on her head than most Emolga.*
Cocoa acts very differently in public and by himself/with people he trusts. He's afraid that if he doesn't behave in an eclectic/spontaneous manner all the time, the other Pokemon would get tired of him and find him boring.*
Hazelnut hates Pokemon Breeders. Because of her parent's history, she gets frightened and disturbed by matchmaking attempts and any displays of (romantic and/or sexual) affection or interest.INVENTORY HISTORY:
