Name: Valon Tess
Trainer Type: Cool Trainer
Hometown: Goldenrod City
Standing at 5 feet 10 inches, Valon is taller then other teens his age. He has blonde spiked hair that pulls forwards, like a reverse Sonic the Hedgehog. His eyes are dark blue that reflects the sea close to where his hometown is located, and also has freckles around his somewhat medium sized nose, which is clearly seen. Surprisingly, he really doesn't have any blemishes or pimples, given him being a teen. Valon's ears are medium sized which he uses blue colored hearing aids due to his minor deafness. Valon has lanky arms that are quite muscular and is normally seen wearing black gloves on his hands.
Valons attire consists of a t-shirt covered by a soft, blue, multi colored hoodie with a wide collar. The upper part of his hoodie is mainly dark blue with a black lining on the edge of the sleeves. The area of his jacket where his stomach is, is a bright teal color and the sides under his arm are a bit darker teal. Valon has a zipper in the center of his jacket, alowing him to take it off if needed. The lower half of his body consists of dark blue shorts with light blue on the side where his pockets are. Under his shorts are short black leggings. Valon wears matching blue boots with socks that aren't normally seen by others. Finally, he wears a matching blue belt with black buckles.
Personality: Though he might look tough, Valon is actually quite kind and care free. He loves to meet new people and Pokémon alike no matter how big or small. When talked to, Valon will need to be close enough to be able to understand what the other person is saying or be able to read their lips because of his hearing loss, though, he is able to speak nearly clearly. He will also treat their Pokémon very kindly, which Valon loves Pokémon a lot. Valon will even cook if need be. He loves to help ohers, which can be taken advantage of. This "helping" can lead Valon in sticky situations, which are hard to get out of.
In battle, Valon will use strategic moves to win, such as weather related moves to strengthen his Pokémon's elemental move, or even status condition related moves in order to stop them or slow down their attack. Once the opponent is paralyzed, or asleep, Valon goes into an offensive position and starts to wear down the opposing Pokémon's health while they are unable to fight back. Though he chooses to battle honorably to win, he is known to push as hard as he can, which can affect how his Pokémon feel about him. If Valon loses, he may seem sad at first, but won't give up his dream. He will happily congratulate his opponent and know that he will need to train more incase he meets them in the future. Valon loves making a rival since it gives him a goal to get better at training and eventually beat them. Deep down, he just wants to prove himself.
History: Valon was the eldest brother of two and was born in Goldenrod City as the first born son of Anya and Ronan. As a baby, Valon was around Pokémon a lot, in fact his parents caught quite a few when they were growing up, so they knew one day Valon would follow in their footsteps and become a trainer too. His parents owned a pastry shop in Golderod so normally he would be taken care of by a babysitter. Close to his first birthday, Valon started to take his first baby steps, and his parents often took him on walks around town to practice. He loved to explore and was very curious. At age 6, Valon's brother Tobias was born into the family. His younger brother loved to mess with him, which Valon greatly disliked but he didn't show it. As the two brothers got a bit older a new problem arised.
They eventually realized Valon was really sick. His parents had to close up their shop temporary to take care of him. Valon got better after about three weeks, but also found out he had gotten hearing loss because of an ear infection he got while he was sick. At this point, Valon was given hearing aids in his ear to help him partially hear, but not completely. The next few years were hard, having to adjust to his hearing 'loss. He was afraid of being made fun of because of this, but was determined to do his best to survive. Once in school, Valon had quite a few friends and loved to write in his journal. He fascinated the topic of Pokémon and cooking and worked so hard, he had top grades in his class.
At age 15, Valon took a job helping his parents at the pastry shop and quite often was in charge of deliveries to nearby towns when off of school. When he was at school, Valon participated in several activities to keep him occupied. If not in school or work, he loves to challenge Tobias to video games or help with chores. Laundry was Valon's favorite chores. On Valon's 16th birthday, his parents had a surprise for him. They took him and Tobias to Professor Oaks lab so he can be a Pokémon trainer. It was then he felt grown up and ready to challenge the world.
