Sandra

An adventurous orphan from Hoenn

0 · 161 views · located in Whirl Islands

a character in “The Multiverse”, originally authored by sonicdash759, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Image

Sandra

AGE: 17

HEIGHT: 5'9

BIRTHPLACE: Unknown but speculated to be either Hoenn or an entirely new region

LIKES/INTERESTS: Exploring, Adventure, Thrill, Oran Berries, her little sister

DISLIKES/FEARS: Ghost types, Tight spaces, Technology, Being rejected, Losing her friends

PERSONALITY: On the outside, Sandra is a rough-n-tough and practically fearless girl, constantly looking for adventure at every opportunity. But on the inside, she fears deeply about being rejected and judged by modern society and culture.

She was born with a special gift: The ability to understand Pokemon speech. Normally an ability ANY trainer would want, eventually Sandra learned the dark side of her gift when a group of wild ghost-type Pokemon tricked the poor girl into leading them back to her town before raising absolute hell, devouring the souls of all her friends, family, and other residents. Now scarred, shaken, and incredibly guilty, Sandra fled into the wilderness to isolate herself, vowing to never make contact with humanity ever again...

But as time went on, the girl slowly began to grow intrigued by the developing world. With the help of some certain eager and accepting trainers, Sandra found the strength and courage to come back into the human way of life and live her life to the fullest.

Today, with the help of her flock of Parrage, Sandra's constructed a large tree house for both herself and her Pokemon, complete with wooden rope bridges, tons of balconies and lookouts to enjoy the view, and even a slide for a shortcut back down to the earth. A perfect place to settle down and enjoy her time with her long-lost younger sibling.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MAIN POKEMON:

STELLA
Parrage
Normal/Flying-Type

Known Moves: Tackle, Sand-Attack, Scratch, Gust, Quick Attack, Charm, Growl, Whirlwind, Peck, Mad Bird, Return, Foresight, Feint Attack, Pursuit, Feather Dance, Agility, Roost, Tailwind, Mirror Move, Brave Bird, Hurricane

Stella met Sandra as a wild Pokemon who was intrigued by the girl's ability to understand her speech. Ever since, the Parrage has been teaching her new friend about the ways of living on the wild side. Nowadays, Stella eagerly follows Sandra around on her travels. After Sandra's acceptance into the modern way of society, Stella's become more open to strangers but she still keeps a safe distance...just in case. Unlike most bird Pokemon, while she may be incapable of flying, Stella is super agile and swift, able to jump long distances and shoot through the air with her signature Mad Bird attack. In battle, it allows her to bounce off surfaces and zip around wildly like an out-of-control unguided pinball, landing multiple hits on her opponent before rocketing forward for one last powerful blow.


SLINKIE
Glameow
Normal-Type

Known Moves: Fake Out, Scratch, Growl, Hypnosis, Feint Attack, Fury Swipes, Charm, Assist, Captivate, Slash, Shadow Claw, Shadow Ball, Taunt, Return, Attract, Thunderbolt

The very first Pokemon caught by Sandra (with some help from River), Slinkie hasn't taken a liking to the girl at first, but nowadays the Glameow is getting used to her trainer's "wild jungle girl-esque" attitude. She loathes water due to her inability to swim and if even a drop gets on her fur, she shows no mercy for Sandra or anyone else for that matter. She's found a friend in Stella, despite common belief that cat and bird Pokemon would never get along, much to the Parrage's joy.


DORIE
Tropigill
Water-Type

Known Moves: Water Gun, Lock-On, Amnesia, Mist, Aurora Beam, Bubble Beam, Focus Energy, Water Pulse, Aqua Jet, Water Pulse, Aqua Ring, Aqua Tail, Hydro Pump, Hyper Beam, Soak, Brine, Dive, Surf, Whirlpool, Colorful Torrent

While Dory may be friendly and ever-joyful, she suffers from memory loss. Sandra thinks it's rather miraculous that the Tropigill could survive in the wild for so long but as it turns out, Dory's memory doesn't go completely blank. She can remember certain things based on how much impact it had on her life. After quite awhile of traveling with Sandra and her Pokemon, she's finally learning names but now she's faced with the problem of which name belongs to who...to most trainers this wouldn't matter so much, but since Sandra can understand Pokemon speech, it's become a daily struggle.


FANG
Rattata (Alolan Form)
Normal/Dark-Type

Known Moves: Tackle, Tail Whip, Quick Attack, Focus Energy, Bite, Pursuit, Hyper Fang, Assurance, Crunch, Sucker Punch, Super Fang

A wild Rattata that Sandra met while exploring the Alola region, Fang is a glutton and thinks about nothing more than food. In the wild, Alolan Rattata gather food for their leader, Alolan Raticate. But since Fang has no one to call a leader at the moment, he figures that all the food goes to him and no one else. This immediately became a problem for Sandra so now she either tries to hide any traces from him, or hesitantly battle him to force him back in line. Fang can behave himself however...as long as his reward is a good snack.


ROCKY
Rockruff
Rock-Type

Known Moves: Tackle, Leer, Sand Attack, Bite, Howl, Rock Throw, Odor Sleuth, Rock Tomb

Another Pokemon from Alola that Sandra met, Rocky is always full of energy, never once sitting still. The newest and youngest of the bunch, Rocky hasn't had much experience battling but is always up for playing with his trainer and teammates. He's also a little cheeky, both causing and getting into trouble which is starting to get on his friend's nerves.

So begins...

The air was chilly and freezing as it always was in Anistar City but to Sandra, it was like nothing she'd ever experienced before. The torn and ragged-looking girl shivered violently as she set foot into Anistar. "Strewth...It's...colder than...I DON'T KNOW! I've never been so frozen before!" she exclaimed.

Hopping at the girl's side was Stella, a pink Parrage from the Beya region. She was a pink birdlike Pokemon with no wings but she made up for it with powerful legs. She had a round spherical body, a short but sharp beak, cyan eyes, three black tail feathers and two pink feathers on her head. She was no runt but not a giant either. Perhaps the same size as those plushies you'd win at a carnival. Stella let out a sudden sneeze before looking up to her trainer with a sympathetic expression. "Parr...?"

Sandra couldn't help but chatter her teeth as she felt herself becoming a human popsicle. Her body started numbing and the fact that she wore a tattered white shirt and ripped beige cargo shorts weren't helping in the slightest. "C-C-C'mon Stella...w-we gotta find...a Pokemon Center...f-fast!" she shivered.

Stella nodded before sneezing again. But concern turned into anger as she saw an approaching Pokemon. A Munna. Stella wasn't the type of Pokemon who would easily warm up to newcomers. She glared before letting out a growl. "Prrrrrrr!"

Sandra followed her feathered friend's gaze to the psychic Pokemon approaching. "Hey! Stella! Stay down! It's just a...wait...what the blasting heck is that thing?" she wondered.

Elaine hurried after her pokemon, anxious to avoid a misunderstanding between them--Hope was pretty well trained, but she'd still heard stories of domestic pokemon being mistaken for wild ones. And the Parrage wasn't necessarily as knowledgeable about all this as they were.

"Hope, come back." Elaine said as the Munna circled around Sandra's head, or rather began to before the Parrage surprised it, at which point it moved behind Elaine pretty quickly.

"It's okay..." She said softly to Hope before turning her attention quickly to Sandra. "...sorry about that, sometimes he likes someone and just wants to see them a bit."

"...are you okay?" She asked, suddenly noticing the tattered state of the other girl's clothes. "...here, I...well, I would give my jacket, but we can go inside." Hope was currently pressed against it, so taking it off was a bust. "Here! I know a good warm place in town."

Sandra nodded, still shivering. "Th-th-thanks mate...please...we need warmth!" she told the other girl.

Stella continued to growl at the other girl's Pokemon even when Sandra grabbed her, following the stranger. "Prrrr...."

Sandra however, remained friendly but still somewhat weary. Even after befriending Nicole Porter and her friends back in Beya, she still wasn't so trusting of modern society. "Th-the name's Sandra and this is Stella. I'm g-guessin you've never seen anything l-like her before? That's cause we come from a d-d-different...l-l-land. The Beya region," she introduced, quick to get the obvious questions out of the way as she had heard them hundreds of times...

Sandra collapsed onto the sand in a tired exhausted heap. "Bloody....Arceus! So...tired! I think we...overestimated our raft, Stella!" she groaned.

Hopping at the girl's side was Stella, a pink Parrage from the Beya region. She was a pink birdlike Pokemon with no wings but she made up for it with powerful legs. She had a round spherical body, a short but sharp beak, cyan eyes, three black tail feathers and two pink feathers on her head. She was no runt but not a giant either. Perhaps the same size as those plushies you'd win at a carnival. Stella let out a sudden sneeze before looking up to her trainer with a sympathetic expression. "Parr...?"

Sandra sighed. "Of course I'm sure! We were supposed to head back to Beya but now we're stranded on this island surrounded by bloody whirlpools! We're in deep trouble..."

Stella looked out into the ocean and sure enough, whirlpools as far as the eye could see surrounded the island, preventing any means of escape. "Parr Parrage!" she sadly tweeted.

"Oy, kid!" yelled an older woman riding an Empoleon. "How the hell did you get here? The waters are freaking impossible to get through! And what in the world is that...never seen that Pokemon before! Ulysses, take a rest, then we're getting right the hell out of here."

The former Champion's breast heaved as she struck an impressive pose. Secure in the knowledge that the Indigo League had found a worthy replacement for herself, the former Mistress of Metal had found a new confidence. "Ah, but allow me to introduce myself. Titania Brightsmith, former Indigo League Champion...maybe you've heard of me. What's your name, kid? And what's that Pokemon you got with ya?"

It was safe to say that Sandra was surprised. She got to her feet and brushed off the sand from her tattered white tank top and green tattered cargo shorts. "Huh? Oh we shipwrecked here! We got caught in a bloody powerful storm and the next thing we know, we're here," she recalled, surprised she hadn't stowed away this time. "And the name's Sandra! G'day!" she greeted before facing her pink friend. "And this is Stella! She's a Parrage and not really a common sight around here. We're from a far away place called thee Beya Region. I don't suppose you've heard of it..."

Stella just eyed the newcomer with suspicion, being her usual territorial self. "Prrrr..." she growled.

"Man, that sucks. I guess this would be a good place for a shipwreck," Titania sighed and shook her head. "But if we can get back to Olivine and the mainland, I know a great pizza place nearby. But first, how about a quick battle? A wise person once told me that during a battle, you can communicate things that words can't. Plus your friend there looks ready to scrap anyway. You just wanna one on one, or do you have more? There isn't much room on this beach for anything more than singles."

And that was enough to set the pink flying type off. "PAR?! PARRAAAAAA!!!" the bird Pokemon screamed.

Sandra sighed, knowing that calming her feathered friend would be impossible. "Mate, either way, looks like we're battling. One on one and please don't hold anything back...I don't think Stella will either..." she sweatdropped.

Stella was seething with rage, jumping up and down as her soft pink color practically went red. "PARR!! PARR!! PARR PARRAGE PARRAGE!!!" she continued to squawk and cry.

"No holding back? Honey, the only thing I do is full speed ahead. Let's go, Tesla!" Seeing the hot headed bird made this choice an easy one. Plus after that humiliation at Gold's hands, she was eager to get a few easy wins under her belt, remember how it felt and what it took to come out on top. After all, this included using her full arsenal of strategies when she asked for no holding back. A Magnezone floated above the sand, rotating its magnets and looking down at Sandra and Parrage with that cyclopean central eye.

"Tesla, roast that chicken with Thunderbolt!"

Sandra and Stella had been through some tough scrapes before so they were used to tough foes but something was telling the girl from "down under" that this one would be different. "Metal AND Electricity? We're gonna have a bloody bad time but let's go for it anyways, Stella! Use Rage!"

Just before the electricity struck down, Stella was well into anger and now every hit would just tick her off even more. When suddenly...

ZAP!

Hundreds of volts coursed through the flying/normal type, inflicting unspeakable pain to Stella but amazingly, she endured the attack, still wanting to get a good knock or two on not just the Pokemon, but the girl who insulted her! "PAAAARR!!!" she screeched before bouncing up high into the air then coming back down with her beak aimed directly at the Magnezone's eye.

Sandra grinned. "That's it Stella!"

"That's...incredible! How is it still up after a hit like that?" Titania was amazed as Parrage endured the blow, but sadly, the little girl's Rage was ineffectual against the ex-Champion, doing chip damage at best against Magnezone's steel armor. "You remind me of me, Sandra...you go till you just can't anymore. I like that! But only one of us can win today! Tesla, finish it off with Flash Cannon!"

The Magnezone's entire body glowed. Instead of charging electricity, it looked like it was focusing its inner power, before blasting a beam of light right at the Parrage. Maybe it was Sturdy or something, but there was no way it was going to absorb two hits from the special-attacking powerhouse.

ZAP!

Stella was immediately KO'd but that didn't mean she was unconscious. While she couldn't fight, the flying/normal type was still red with anger, aiming a cold glare at the woman who had hurt her feelings. "Prrrrrrr...." she growled.

Sandra was surprised. "Strewth..." she walked over and picked up her rather "crispy" Pokemon off the ground, holding it in her arms. "Take it easy, Stella. I'm sure she didn't mean to say that..." she tried to reassure.

But Stella's glare was fixed on the woman, thinking of how she could get back at the arrogant human. "Prrrr...."

Sandra however felt sorry for the woman. "I'm sorry about her. Stella has a REALLY short temper...Actually, even shorter than most Parrage now that I think about it..."

"Huh. Not bad, Sandra. But you've got a ways to go before you can challenge the likes of me. Here, hop on my Empoleon. He managed to get in here, I'm sure he could--"

She was cut off. "Empooool."

"Right, Ulysses. Right. That was tricky, and doing it with a second person on board could take us all down."

Titania sighed and returned both of her hard-working steel-types. "So...how do you wanna get off this pile of rocks, Sandra? There's no way I'm going in there. Not without someone to cover my ass."

Sandra blushed. "So I have you impressed? Fair Dinkum!" she remarked before watching the woman return both Pokemon in confusion. Then came surprise. "Crikey! Are you saying we should swim this?? I mean I've gotten through some rough seas but...even a whirlpool is too much for this bush-girl!"

Stella decided to let her guard down...for now. Upon hearing her trainer's negativity towards a watery alternative, she came up with an idea. "Par! Parrage Parrage Rage Rage Par!" she chirped.

Sandra nodded. "A raft? Sounds like a ripper idea!" then her eyes went back to the whirlpools. "Oh...whirlpools are all around this bloody island so a raft wouldn't last a bloody second..." she sighed.

Stella sighed as well.

Sandra frowned. "Hey...what if your Pokemon took turns with us? Like you get to land first then send it back for us?" she meekly suggested.

"No, it's a great idea. Empoleon can't hold two of us, but if you have a Pokemon that's a strong swimmer, he can help Ulysses. I hear tell that there's an HM that can let Pokemon get past these no problem...I don't suppose you'd be lucky enough to have it in your possession?"

Titania sighed. "HM. Hidden Machine. You know TMs, Technical Machines? HMs are the same deal, they contain moves that can be taught to Pokemon for use in combat. Unlike most TMs, HMs are designed for use in the field as well. They're what let your Pokemon carry you across the water with Surf, move boulders with Strength, make travel a snap by Flying back to town, and so on. There's one that let you safely pass through these whirlpools, Sandra. I don't know how you don't know what those are."

Even Ulysses, her faithful Empoleon companion, couldn't help but make the equivalent of a face-palm gesture.

Sandra was now even more lost. "TMs? HMs? What the in the bludging feathers are you talking about, mate?? I've lived most of my life out in the wild away from you people...I barely understand how to use a Pokeball!" she explained. "My clothes are a mess! Couldn't you have guessed that??" she questioned.

Stella continued to growl at both the Empoleon and the woman.

"I kinda figured your clothes were a mess from the fact you got away from a damn shipwreck." Negotiations were breaking down fast. "Here, Ulysses, swim out and gather as much floating debris as you can. We'll make a raft. Bomber, fly to Olivine and tell the Ampharos at the lighthouse what's going on." A Skarmory issued forth and immediately broke for the mainland.

"Girl, when we get off this island, you best get ready for one hell of a culture shock. In the meantime, let's try to not bite each other's heads off."

Sandra gave a slight glare at the woman, doubting that this person would even be of worthy friendship. "Listen here, sheila. While I may not know anything about what you just said, I've seen what modern human life is like. Granted, I know little to nothing about it but I'm not THAT 'primitive' as you might call it. In fact, we stowed away on that ship that perished. We know how to get around!" she then realized what had just slipped out of her mouth. "I-I-I mean...u-uh..."

Stella froze. Would this new girl get them in trouble? Would they finally be busted and confess all those years of stowing away? The normal/flying type looked from Sandra to Titania then back to Sandra. "...Par...??"

"We all have our skeletons. I might not really understand your lingo, but if we don't start working together we WILL perish here. Ah, Ulysses, good job finding some seaweed to lash this stuff together..." Then the Skarmory returned, shaking its head sadly. "No luck from the mainland either? All right. Here's how this is going to work. I don't have enough for two...can your Pokemon use Fly? If not, take my Skarmory there and head north for the lighthouse. I'll take the water route and catch up to you."

Sandra was a bit shocked. "You can't be serious, mate! Is your Empoleon really that tired? Can't you just ride him back?" she paused. "After all, isn't that how you got here??"

Stella was already hopping towards the woman's Skarmory, but still eyeing it with caution. "Prrr...." she growled.

Sandra glared at the pink bird Pokemon. "Don't try anything, Stella! We need Skarmory to get back!" she warned.

"It got me here without using the special technique to cross whirlpools I told you about. Yes, it's that freaking tired. Maybe your Parrage can follow along and learn something useful. Ulysses here is my first one...we know each other better than some people know themselves."

"Empooool..."

"Save your breath, you're gonna need it for the return trip," Titania snapped back, cutting off the majestic-looking Pokemon that was about as tall as she was standing up. "All right, now just grab on to Bomber's head crest, there, and hang on tight. It'll be over before you know it."
