Mishu's goal is to educate the world about Dark Type Pokemon and create awareness of the importance of Dark Pokemon.
Mishu’s a kind and sweet individual Her love of Pokemon and her love of People pushes her to see the best in everyone around her. It takes a lot to get Mishu to dislike you – and even more to get her to completely distrust or hate you. Mishu believes that Pokemon and people often come from “bad walks of life” when they act out maliciously towards others or their habitats. She doesn’t think that a normal individual would lash out as ruthlessly if they had a happy and nurturing home that they were able to safely grow up in. A large flaw of Mishu’s is that she will often try to talk to the individual and try to understand what’s making them ‘tick’ to act the way that they do, especially if she thinks she can help them cope with their problems or find the help they may actually need.
The young lady is an intelligent and bright individual, as well. She loves learning through observation and she often doesn’t mind sitting down outside for long periods of time to watch Pokemon in their natural habitat. She keeps a couple of notebooks on hand in her backpack so that she can easily pull them out and jot down notes while observing the wilderness around her, then backs up her notes in a digitalized format whenever she has enough time and space to do so. Mishu primarily focuses on studying Dark type Pokemon. She feels that Dark types are one of the most misunderstood types of Pokemon out there, and wants to be able to help people understand more about these types of Pokemon – how they’re just as good of companions and just as useful as any other type to work with an befriend.
Mishu is the type of person who has too many acquaintances and several friends and best friends. She makes friendships easily, and often loves to keep in touch with her friends to make sure that they’re doing well. She is also the type of person to push physical and mental wellness on her friends – often reminding them that it’s important to allow themselves to feel their emotions in healthy ways from time to time, and gently encouraging them to seek additional resources when they need added help. She doesn’t go out of her way to avoid people, but Mishu does learn overtime to distance herself from individuals who consistently use her. If a friend has stolen from her at least 2 to 3 times, she drops them from a physical friendship where she would hang around them and keeps them instead as a virtual friendship where she may only call and check up on them occasionally.
Mishu loves music, art, and nonfictional literature. She finds the evolution of knowledge and the evolution of music and art to be a rather fascinating subject. Although she doesn’t study it as much as she would love to, Mishu tries to make time to soak up such knowledge from trustworthy companions who love to chatter away endlessly about such fascinations. Mishu as an inner library of facts inside of her head, and often finds herself trying to juggle as storing these factual bits of data internally. This is why she also keeps detailed notes on her personal hobbies, such as researching and studying dark types, however. She finds that it is best to have hard evidence of what you know verses just having anecdotal memories that may become faulty or outdated over time.
Mishu has a deep umber brown complexion reminiscent of calla lilies. She has a prominent Nubian nose with a heart shaped face and high cheek bones. Mishu has a medium athletic frame with well defined arms and sculped legs and stands just above the average height for her gender at five feet and six inches. She only has a “bit” of a stomach because Mishu does not actively work besides going on long walks or runs occasionally. Mishu has long, wiry curly hair that she often keeps in two long braids in the back that stop just above her lower back. She keeps her bangs in the front in long, ringlet curls that stop just above her shoulders on either side of her face. Mishu as a deep midnight blue hair tone and light amber brown eyes. She has a small cut on her face from an altercation with a wild skittish Pokemon that she wondered too closely too once during her youth.
Mishu wears mostly dark colors and prefers simple T-shirts with blacks and dark blue hues. She pairs this with dark blue or black shorts and a grey pair of full-cover flats that are easy to walk in. When Mishu is exploring rough terrain, she often switches her flats out for a pair of black hiking boots. Mishu also wears a bright blue kerchief that she keeps tied around her neck. Mishu often fits in medium sized clothing, and prefers shorts that fall at, or just above, her knees. Her shirts are almost always short sleeved unless she is in a snowy climate. Only during extremely cold or snowy climates does Mishu normally wear long, thick pants and a thick winter coat, just over her preferred normal attire. Mishu has an ordinary leather backpack that she carries around with her, full of notebooks and pens that allow her to collect field notes whenever she wants.
Mishu’s parents met within a laboratory as partners on a similar project. They were given large amounts of donations to prove that some Pokemon were naturally “more destructive” than others, specifically in relation to human habitats. Often, the two worked closely with each other on the project. Mishu’s mother, Kiho, worked out in the field studying the Pokemon closely and documenting her findings that she would pass to Mishu’s father, Hiroto. Together, they helped their facility develop as “calming serum” that was supposed to be extremely useful and valuable in helping them calm down Pokemon known to have “hyperaggressive episodes” around civilization to make them more readily useful for human use – IE obedience, entertainment, or “pest control”.
Kiho and Hiroto became heavily involved with each other and ended up having two kids – Rina and Mishu. Rina was Mishu’s older sister that she barely knew about as she didn’t survive for long, and her parents would rarely mention her existence. However, Mishu grew up in a lavish home thanks to her parents’ decent income. Kiho and Hiroto hired a live-in nanny who was responsible for Mishu’s upbringing most of the time, because of the long hours they often spent at the facility. Mishu’s nanny, known as Ms. Aimi, loved and cherished Mishu and spent her time teaching Mishu about the wonderful world that they lived in.
Mishu would often travel outside of her home with Aimi and explore the Galar region, where Aimi spent most of her time explaining how things worked – both in society, and in the wilds with Pokemon. When Mishu was old enough to bravely watch, Aimi would work with her partner Pokemon to battle wild Pokemon in brilliant displays of teamwork. Aimi explained that while wild Pokemon were naturally distrustful of humans, most would warm up and befriend humans if given the chance. She also helped Mishu understand how some humans had misconceptions about Pokemon due to unnatural fears they may have or the general “unknown” of a Pokemon’s true power.
Meanwhile, Kiho and Hiroto worked on tranquilizing and taming larger beasts that went out of control in a “by any means necessary” scientific study. The facility would always bring the Pokemon they dubbed as “beasts” back to the laboratory to do extensive tests on. When Kiho stayed late one of her nights in the laboratory she learned a dark secret that the CEO of the facility was using their scientific studies to try and control Pokemon and eventually capture legendary beasts for their personal use. They wanted to take control over the Galar region. She spoke to Hiroto about it, and together they both tried to free some of the captured Pokemon from their facility’s grasps as they worked on coming to terms with what they had been doing in the facility the entire time.
However, not everything works out as planned. Shortly after they started working to secretly free the Pokemon in the facility’s grasps, Kiho and Hiroto died while on the job. Officially, a representative from the department appeared at the doorway to Mishu’s parents’ house and explained the news to Ms. Aimi. The representative explained that one of their recently captured Pokemon got loose and resulted in the death of Mishu’s parents. The representative offered both Aimi and Mishu a nice settlement that would ensure that they were well taken care of until Mishu reached 18 years of age, so long as Aimi agreed to retain care and custody of the child. When Aimi asked about next of kin, the representative explained that they tried to reach out but found that no next of kin were alive to take custody of Mishu.
Aimi took custody of Mishu after that day, and when Mishu turned 13 she went to live full-time with Aimi at her home. Mishu spent a long time coping with the loss of her parents, whom she loved dearly. For a long time, she resented powerful Pokemon and couldn’t understand why they would take away her “world”. But with Aimi’s guidance and her kind and loving nature, she helped Mishu understand that sometimes terrible things can happen, but it doesn’t always mean that Pokemon are inherently bad. Aimi brought home a small Galarian Zigzagoon that had been beaten on by kids in the street and nursed it back to health one day. When the Zigzagoon refused to return to the wild – appearing on Aimi’s doorsteps 3 times after being released – she allowed Mishu to keep it and raise it. Mishu saw the terror in Zigzagoon’s eyes the first day they brought it home and watched the Pokemon grow to love them as though they were its family. The Zigzagoon often growled or snapped at Mishu when she rushed to pet it or try to hold it early on, but Aimi would stop Mishu and gently explain that the Zigzagoon needed time to learn to trust them.
Although they became best of friends, Mishu ended up leaving the Pokemon behind to travel to the Johto region where she could study Pokemon – specifically Dark Type Pokemon she had fallen in love with – more in-depth. She’d heard that Dark Type Pokemon were originally discovered in Johto and learned that they used to be called “evil Pokemon” by some who were fearful of the Pokemon. She wanted to learn more about them, so that she could help persuade people and show them that Dark Type Pokemon were just as sweet, loving, and great companions as any other Pokemon.

I don't think I need to tell you what you need to do now? Congrats on your second character! ^^
Personally though, I'd like to know what Mishu has been doing from she was 13 (and met the zigzagoon) and until now where she is traveling to Johto at 30. That's quite a gap, where nothing interesting had happened apparently
Cunning and cautious, this Pokémon survives by stealing food from others. It erases its tracks with swipes of its tail as it makes off with its plunder.
Kotaro is a relatively shy and skittish Pokemon. Kotaro was captured after a defeat during a battle between the fox Pokemon and Mishu's old companion Pokemon, a Galarian Zigzagoon. Kotaro doesn't like being in a Pokeball for long, and prefers sweet and savory foods over dry or bitter foods.
