SO I GOT PLATINUM. YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS.
Instead of this team meeting up along the journey, I had it that each of the teammates had a history with the leader at one point and got together in one spot to begin a A MOST BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP AND MUCH EPIC BATTLING. Gallagher, Overgrow
Gallagher is the esteemed and reserved leader of the team, who hails from Veilstone City. You can say that he is the very image of a man of action and little words. He's one of those people who truly believe that actions speak for you. Deep! He enjoys travelling by foot, so you can imagine how excited he was to get the chance to traverse through the Sinnoh region with his buddies!
Although he is not shy, he still has a difficult time getting along with other people since he looks rather intimidating most of the time. But despite this, he cares for his friends very much and considers them as a second family, if not a dysfunctional one.
-----Cecilia, Swift Swim
Cecilia is one Gallagher's many childhood friends and is a modest girl who hates drawing attention to herself. Cecilia met Gallagher while he was vacationing with his family in Twinleaf Town. She was a young swimmer at the time the two met and even saved Gallagher from drowning in Lake Verity. Since then, the two have become close friends looking out for each other.
Cecilia was often made fun of for her beanpole appearance, but luckily for her Gallagher would beat up anyone who made fun of her. But she's now more confident about herself and joined the team when Gallagher wanted to make a battle team consisting of his closest friends.
Harold is a very outgoing Staraptor. Despite having the same nature as Gallagher, the entire team would say that they are complete opposites of each other. Where Gallagher has a hard time socializing, Harold is the master at it and always enjoys a good party or two. Harold and Gallagher attended the same middle school but at the time, Harold was friends with one of the bullies in school.
One day, after seeing his "friend" mistreat Gallagher so badly, Harold had enough and helped Gallagher....even though they got beat up in the end, haha. Since then, the two became good friends and Harold was the first to join Gallagher's battle team.
-----Margaret, Magnet Pull
Margaret is a cheerful girl who is monstrously strong for her dainty physique. Having grown up in Mt. Coronet, it is expected for Nosepass and Probopass like her to train themselves and survive the worst conditions in the mountain. Strangely enough, she enjoys things like lolita fashion and cute animals. Margaret uses her cuteness to her advantage, almost always beating her unsuspecting opponents senseless with her trusty bat (which happens to be made of rock).
When she and Gallagher were young, Gallagher had the misfortune of meeting Margaret while she was training and almost got beaten into a pulp. After making a thousand tearful apologies, Margaret and Gallagher eventually became friends and several years later, she became one of the most vital teammates to join Gallagher.
Nathaniel is the mad scientist of the team who almost always has his head in the books (even while battling) and is close friends with Margaret. He has an insanely good photographic memory, which comes in handy for himself and his team. However, Nathaniel suffers from occasional seizures and has to take some medications in order to avoid them. Because of his condition, many students at his age rejected him, with Margaret being the only exception.
Nathaniel shortly joined Gallagher's team after Margaret recommended him to Gallagher. Gallagher was a little unsure at first, wondering if Nathaniel can still battle with his condition, but he soon accepted Nathaniel as long as Nathaniel can control his seizures.
-----Natalia, Pure Power
Natalia is a classy and sophisticated Medicham, who is rather mysteriousssss~ Not much is known about her except that she used to have a huge and obsessive crush on Gallagher while they were in elementary school. She used to send thousands of love letters to the boy, and always found excuses to be with her future "husband". But the two never got that far and only became good friends, not that she minded! She grew out of her crush and a few years later, joined Gallagher's team.
Natalia grew up with a rich family and despite her fighting prowess, she does not know much about what goes on outside of her home. She also tends to act a bit selfish and spoiled, but she is trying her best to think less about herself and more about her friends. Good for her!Disclaimer:
