This is my entry for Reigai's contest, for his comic, Pokémon Antithesis, which required entrants to make up and enter original Pokémon trainers or breeders. These trainers will then enter a tournament in the Nobel region, where Pokémon Antithesis takes place. At first I wasn't going to enter this contest. Then I considered entering a SoL character, but given the fact that Rei, the comic's protagonist is rather... violent, I figured there was a chance he might end up killing said SoL character. Now, I love my characters, so I thought I'd better just enter myself (Rei, if I die, I can't draw SoL anymore; so consider that! lol). Meet Lottie, my alter-ego in the world of Pokémon. Most people think Sandy is my alter ego, but even though she is based on me, she's not really my alter-ego.
Lottie is a Pokémon trainer from Kanto. She never did challenge the Elite 4, but given her skill level, she probably could have if she wanted to. Lottie has 12 Pokémon, rather than 6 and she carries them all with her. In a battle, she will pick a team of 6 to fight with. Being able to switch Pokémon in her team on the spot, allows Lottie to keep her opponents completely in the dark about which Pokémon they'll be facing.

Bulbasaur (no nickname)
Gender: male
Personality: Hardy
Ability: Overgrow
Moves: Giga Drain, Synthesis, Sleep Powder, Sludge Bomb
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Bulbasaur is Lottie's first Pokémon. For some reason, this little guy never evolved and he's quite conscious about the fact that he's the team's weakest member. That's why he trained very hard to compensate for his handicap and it's also why he keeps challenging Pokémon who are much bigger and stronger than himself; even those who belong to his own team.

Timer (Shiny Typhlosion)
Gender: male
Personality: Quiet
Ability: Blaze
Moves: Blast Burn, Focus Blast, Solar Beam, Sunny Day
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Timber is an old geezer, who doesn't really fight all that often anymore. As the oldest Pokémon on the team, a lot of the other team members regard him as a (grand)father figure, as he is quite gentle and good natured. However, in battles, this seemingly rickety old critter suddenly proves to be a lean, mean fighting machine… with a slight limp.

Jethro (Manectric)
Gender: male
Personality: Timid
Ability: Static
Moves: Thunder Wave, Rain Dance, Bite, Thunder
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Jethro keeps to himself and has trouble trusting people. However, he is totally devoted to his trainer and will battle for all he's worth.

Rapp (Garchomp)
Gender: male
Personality: Jolly
Ability: Sand Veil
Moves: Dragon Claw, Crunch, Dig, Aqua Tail
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Rapp is always in for a joke. He's one of Lottie's major powerhouses and is often used in battles, much to Bulbasaur's regret. Rapp doesn't seem to realize that Bulbasaur doesn't particularly like him. Rapp just takes the little guy's attitude as something of silly joke.

Geno (Kabutops)
Gender: male
Personality: Gentle
Ability: Battle Armor
Moves: Night Slash, Stone Edge, Waterfall, Mega Kick
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Geno is surprisingly kind and gentle for a Kabutops. He doesn't like fighting, but he will if he must. He tends not to go all-out, though.

Hood (Arbok)
Gender: female
Personality: Quirky
Ability: Intimidate
Moves: Glare, Iron Tail, Gunk Shot, Ice Fang
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Hood has a sense of humor, most find somewhat disturbing. She likes to pull (often mean) practical jokes on people, preferably on gullible characters such as Jethro, Geno and Swoop.

Lupe (Absol)
Gender: female
Personality: Lonely
Ability: Super Luck
Moves: Sword Dance, Night Slash, Psycho Cut, Stone Edge
Held item: Scope Lens (looks like a green visor over one eye)
Lupe is a very serious Pokémon, who takes her job in the team very seriously. Nimble, strong and fast, Lupe's battle specialisation is landing devastating critical hits, which often knock out her opponents with one hit.

Swoop (Pidgeot)
Gender: male
Personality: Gentle
Ability: Keen Eye
Moves: Featherdance, Thief, Fly, Steel Wing
Held item: None
Swoop mostly serves as Lottie's personal pilot. He's also very good at relieving his opponents of their held items, making him mostly a utility Pokémon. But sometimes he's also used in battles. Outside of battles, Swoop is surprisingly friendly.

Tauros (no nickname)
Gender: male
Personality: Brave
Ability: Intimidate
Moves: Giga Impact, Zen Headbutt, Earthquake, Persuit
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Tauros has major rage issues. Once angered, he'll often progressively get more and more enraged. This will either end badly for his opponents, or himself… Making him a risky choice for a Pokémon battle.

Scizor (no nickname)
Gender: male
Personality: Bashful
Ability: Swarm
Moves: Agility, Sword Dance, Baton Pass, X-scissor
Held item: Shed Skin (Looks like the cast-off skin of a Nincada, clasped on Scizor's back)
Scizor is the team's trusty Baton Passer, passing on nicely boosted stats to his team members. Because Scizor usually doesn't actually FIGHT his opponents, but just supports his team members, Scizor is not very confidant of his own battle abilities, which are actually quite formidable.

Slani (Rhydon)
Gender: female
Personality: Sassy
Ability: Lightningrod
Moves: Brick Break, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Megahorn
Held item: Quick Claw
Slani has issues concerning her feminine side, or lack thereof. She has a pretty big crush on Dusk, but he is totally unaware of this, mostly because Slani has no idea to show her affections properly. Instead, she tries to impress him using her combat skills; she'll often go all out in battles, even against opponents with huge type advantages against her.

Dusk (Tyranitar)
Gender: male
Personality: Naive
Ability: Sand Stream
Moves: Attract, Rock Slide, Crunch, Earthquake
Held item: Doesn't really matter
Dusk is quite an uncomplicated character, he just likes to fight battles, and eat and sleep outside of them. He often finds himself being teamed up with Rapp in double battles. The land shark is one of the few Pokémon he fully trusts as a partner in battles. He has no idea Slani has feeling for him.

I realize my entry may be a little sweet and bubbly, considering the comic it's for, but... DEAL WITH IT! Lol. Ok seriously now, feel free to alter some things if you like, Reigai. Just don't horribly mutilate Lottie's personality. ;)
Also, I hope you don't mind that I entered something slightly sketchy-looking. It's all I had time for... And this took quite a lot of time to make anyway...
