History The little Gible was born in Sinnoh as an only child. When he was barely two days old, his mother was forced to flee from Sinnoh after being pursued by Team Galactic for a long time. Eventually, carrying her hatchling on her back for the entire journey, she made it to Johto where she and her son, Rocket, lived together in Dark Cave.

For a while it was a happy existence – Rocket grew up alongside his mother and trained himself by battling the wild Geodude and Zubat that dwelled there with them. She taught him to catch food and to survive in the wild and told him stories about when she and his father were young and bold. The two of them shared a very close bond. Over the years, Rocket learned the ways of battle from constant practice, his mother sometimes even offering to help train him herself. He was a determined, hot-headed young Pokemon, and by the time he had evolved into Gabite in his mid-teens, he felt just about ready to take on anything.

However, life turned upside-down when Rocket attempted to battle a Zubat which looked ... a little different from the others. It was when the Pokemon attempted to kill him that he realised that something was terribly wrong - this Pokemon was a zombie. Having not expected anything as horrifying as that, Rocket actually fled from the battle, shouting at his mother to run. By this time there were a whole horde of undead Zubat pursuing him. His mother fought to protect her son with all of her might, grabbing the Zubat and crushing them in her powerful jaws. But she was vastly outnumbered, and told her son to flee and save himself, and that she would catch up to him later. Rocket obeyed and ran away, taking only one look back to see his mother collapse to the ground with a giant thud as she was literally eaten alive by the crazed, blood-thirsty Zubat.

At first, Rocket thought that he could never survive the wild without her, what with the huge numbers of undead Pokemon that now populated Johto. But he told himself that Mother would want him to try his best, and so he continued onwards through Johto, battling one undead after another. Determined to become stronger than any other Pokemon and to ultimately take on his mother’s huge, powerful form, he now travels Johto looking for other survivors and new challengers.
Appearance Rocket is an ordinarily sized Gachomp with a number of scars on his body. Red burns from Wolfe the Garchomp's Flamethrower attack cover the last few inches of his tail. He has fresh bite marks on his left fin, inflicted during his battle with Rionnah the Luxray.
Personality Rocket is a cocky bastard. He believes his fighting skills to be superior to others' and he has great confidence in his abilities. Moreover, he is willing to battle anything that moves, undead or not. This is so he can gain experience, evolve into Garchomp and become 'a badass' as soon as he can. He strives for the power to defeat anything in his path. More than ever, he just wants to survive the epidemic so he can 'laugh about it later'.

He likes to be alone so he can work on his skills without interruption, but if he finds that he must team up with others then he will do so. He is generally friendly towards other living (if a little bit smug) as long as they are nice in return ... pissing him off is a big mistake. He can't stand being insulted in any way and will react angrily to this. He has quite a big temper in this regard. Around the undead he is hostile and will challenge them to a battle right away. He is rude and impassive to infected Pokemon who still retain their minds, but will tolerate their presence as long as they don't attack.

Rocket is quite the lady's man and often has an attraction towards  reptilian or draconian females. Around a lady he is polite and generous, and sometimes a little too keen to gain her affection. He has been rejected a number of times for seeming too much of a showoff.

Rocket has a sense of morality underneath his tough-guy exterior. He will never steal or murder for his own benefit, and when challenging non-hostile Pokemon to a battle he will never attack unless they agree. He may seem like he enjoys all kinds of conflict, he doesn't like disputes within a group and will try to resolve it.

Hmm ... I think I'll go for the Blackthorne team if it's still open?

I'd like Rocket to go to the Hearthome Team in Sinnoh.

A few paragraphs have been added to his personality, simply for more detail.

For an Adult there is a a huge section of history missing. He basically goes from a child in the Epidemic to suddenly being an Adult? Where did the rest of the time go? The Epidemic hasn't been that long dear. I suggest revising his history just a bit to make it seem less like he was a child the entire time, just to make the transition easier.

That is my only note.

Pff... Damn these old profiles. XD

OK, the history should be better now, hopefully filled some gaps.

That works better. Just the addition of the word 'years' makes a world of difference lol.

Approved.
