History Oliver was born in Kanto as the youngest of a litter of three. He and his brothers lived under the watchful eye of their mother as they played and roamed their home. Their father was their role model. He was a powerful, majestic Arcanine and the three of them looked to him for guidance and wisdom. Oliver in particular loved his father dearly, and the two of them spent a lot of time together. For the first few months of his life he lived this happy, carefree life being a typical, mischievous pup.

The epidemic hit when Oliver was almost a year old. It caught the family completely by surprise, the undead swarming from out of nowhere and endlessly hungry for their blood. Oliver's parents attempted to fight the beasts off, but were overwhelmed. His father called at them to retreat, and fled into the nearby woodland with his family in tow. Oliver ran after him, and they didn't stop until they were a good couple of miles away from their home. Exhausted, Oliver flopped onto the ground as his father caught his breath. They realised with horror that Oliver's mother and two brothers were no longer behind them.

His father was sick with worry, scooping his tired pup onto his back and taking off in search for them. They were unlucky, finding not a single trace of them - they had simply vanished. Oliver's father was grief-stricken, believing them to be dead, but did what he could for his one remaining son, bringing him food and moving from place to place to find shelter. One day though, the cave that they'd found was attacked and Oliver's father told him to run. The pup obeyed, fleeing off into the undergrowth and trusting that his father would follow him soon enough. He didn't.

Oliver became lost on his way back to the cave, losing his nerve with panic and simply running until he could run no more. Eventually he made it to Mount Silver near to Kanto's border, and together with a group of survivors he had met, managed to pass through the mountain and cross the border back into his homeland. However, the purge did not offer the young pup any mercy and he ended up back in Johto - exactly where he didn't want to be. He struggles through life to this day, running from any undead and awaiting the day when he can be strong enough to fight them.
Appearance He is about half the size of a fully-grown Growlithe, but otherwise his appearance is normal for his species.
Personality Oliver is a sweet-natured, optimistic and playful young Growlithe. He is loyal and determined, often even gaining enough confidence to join in a fight, despite his inexperience. His father was, and still is, his role model in life, and works to become "big and strong" just like he was in his eyes. The young pup is very polite, always remembering to use his manners in the company of adults.

Oliver is afraid of the dangerous new world around him, even though he tries not to show it. Previously he fled from any undead he encountered, but since learning at Mount Silver that he could be useful, his confidence has begun to grow. However, being as young as he is, Oliver can sometimes become a little reckless and sometimes charges into battle without thinking of possible repercussions. He has very little experience in battling, and mostly just relies on impulse rather than strategy. He has yet to learn that recklessness is never a good thing.

Oliver knows enough about the world to get by, but many things are still a mystery to the pup. At his age, the urge to learn as much as possible about anything and everything is impossible to ignore. He asks as many questions as he can think of until he is satisfied with his answer. The little Growlithe is very sociable and loves to be around other Pokemon. He is aware that many adult Pokemon would not appreciate the presence of one as young as him, so he makes sure to try and prove himself to them. He hates being dismissed as 'just a kid' and will do whatever he can to show them that he can be of use.

Oliver bonds quickly with other Pokemon that are kind to him and is never seen too far from a trustworthy adult. The young pup is perhaps a little too quick to judge, however, and can easily miss signs of deceit or sarcasm. He understands that not everybody in the world is good-natured, but sometimes needs a little bit of help in realising who those bad Pokemon are. He relies entirely on first impressions on judging whether or not somebody is friendly. Oliver dislikes bad language but will tolerate it as long as it is not directed at him.
User Notes --Flare Blitz was passed down from his Arcanine father. The move is impressive to look at, but lacks power because of his level and inexperience. He hurts himself more than he hurts the opponent.
--Hopes one day to evolve, but not until he is older and stronger.
--He's the equivalent of a six-year old child.

Approved. You'll be placed on the Silver team.
For future reference, you are to follow the hatchery link in creating a new profile. the 'living profiles' sub is for approved profiles only.

Also, it doesn't make sense that he's not fully grown if hes already at lvl 45.
If you can adjust that.

Thank you! Yes, I'll be sure to remember that in the future. Oh, and I'll just change his level. Shall I leave his moveset as it is, or shall I change that as well?
