:bulletpink:Name: Rochelle Mocha
:bulletpink:Age: 12
:bulletpink:Birthdate: December 16th (Sagittarius)
:bulletpink:Gender: Female
:bulletpink:Hometown: Virbank City, Unova
:bulletpink:Occupation: Actor (I mean... kinda?? she isn't retired but she's not acting right now...)
:bulletpink:Type of Trainer: New
:bulletpink:Favorite Type: :iconfightingtypeplz: - Something about fighting types' ability to take matters into their own hands really speaks to Rochelle. Then again, she may just be living vicariously through them, trying to control her anger and all... Whatever works.
:bulletpink:Least Favorite Type: :iconicetypeplz: - Rochelle just... doesn't really like anything about ice. It's cold, it's wet, and it's weak as heck in the face of a good fighting move.

:bulletpink:Personality: Rochelle is a very angry person. This is kind of the first thing anyone really needs to know about her. She loves confrontation and fighting battles for anyone who will let her. The thing about her anger though? She hates how angry she is. Halfway through most of her fits of rage she'll end up redirecting all that rage at herself for letting herself get that angry in the first place, and then she gets really exhausted because of how angry she is. It's a vicious cycle, and she doesn't learn anything from it. The poor girl just has a temper way too big from someone her size.

All that said, Rochelle isn't mean or cold-natured or anything like that. In fact, Rochelle is just about one of the nicest people ever... you know, when she's not screaming at you... or at the book that fell on her foot... or the doors of the gym that won't let her in because she doesn't have any badges. She's inquisitive and eager to help, but incredibly reckless. She doesn't have much as far as street-smarts go, but this doesn't stop her from thinking that she can handle things. She gets easily insulted when people help her out of trouble and she didn't explicitly tell them to. 

If one can bear to be around Rochelle (and her constant angry yelling) long enough, they'll find out pretty soon that she is incredibly grateful to people who put up with her, and is fiercely loyal. She will very readily pick fights with larger, older, or stronger opponenets in order to defend her friends. No one attacks her because... well, what kind of sick creature would actually attack a twelve-year-old girl? But she doesn't realize that this advantage won't last forever. 

PokeStar Studios, just north of Unova's Virbank City,  is famous for its movie-making industry, producing films and TV shows of all sorts of quality, from exceptionally engaging to egregiously boring. The participants of such a polarized environment were either very privileged or completely overlooked. There really was no such thing as 'kind of famous' - you either were or weren't here. This was the world Rochelle Mocha was born into.

On-stage and off-stage daughter of the acclaimed actress Vivianne Mocha, Rochelle was taught at a very young age that with famous blood comes all sorts of perks. For one, she didn't even have to be cast for her role in Vivi's TV show, "Miss Mocha," a 90s-esque family sitcom about on-screen Vivianne Mocha and her quirky on-screen family. Rochelle played little Pepper (short for Peppermint, since peppermint mochas hahaa), an uptight, proper girl who was often aghast at the outlandish things her on-screen mother did for laughs. She was the favorite of many of "Miss Mocha"'s loyal followers (aka, lots of older people who were up too early on Sundays) for her outdated ideas and incredible obsession with manners and cleanliness.

Off-screen Rochelle however? She was literally nothing like this. In fact, she was so little like this that many of the stage managers were surprised by her. She didn't care about properness or manners one bit! Now little Rochelle was a very friendly girl, no doubt. There wasn't a hint of bad intention in her. But she was loud and rash and loved to dive right into things, whether or not she really knew what on earth was going on. While Pepper Mocha had lots of friends in her cushy private school, Rochelle Mocha had to make do with the stage managers and the Pokemon who helped out on the show and behind the scenes. For some reason, there didn't seem to be any other kids her age on set who wanted to play with such a loud and reckless girl. Not that Rochelle cared. She preferred the company of grown-ups and pokemon better anyway.

As Rochelle got older, "Miss Mocha" became a bit more popular, and evolved to cater to a different audience. Specifically, a younger audience. Vivi's on-screen persona got elaborate story arcs involving several potential love interests, an impromptu adoption, and a long existential tedium involved with her job. The show became a bit less funny and sitcom-like. It was starting to seem more like a drama, and Rochelle wasn't sure how she felt about that. The biggest reason for this was that by the time she turned 10, the target audience had changed so much that having a character as uptight and old-fashioned as Pepper was no longer desireable, and they reduced her screen time little by little.

Eventually the change was so profound that Pepper's character was no longer needed, and after a very brief consultation with Vivianne, the producers of the show did away with Pepper for good, shipping the girl off to her biological father's home somewhere far away from the focus of the show. Now as a young girl, Rochelle didn't understand the fickleness of the acting business, and she certainly didn't stop to consider the market value of her not being on "Miss Mocha" anymore. All she understood was that her mom didn't find a way to stop her from being kicked from the show. Yet Vivianne was becoming ever so popular! Spending less and less time with her daughter in order to accomodate more complicated filming schedules, actually going to interviews about the strong metaphors to human complexity and emotion from the show, even sometimes to talk about Rochelle and how wonderfully the girl was doing in smaller acting gigs.

Except Rochelle wasn't doing very well at all. What happened to her was unjust, in her mind. And as a child's mind happens to work, the magnitude of the injustice was not as important as the fact that it happened. So every time her mother mentioned her on camera, she grew a bit angry. She did all that work just to be removed from the show, and her own mom has the nerve to say that she's okay?? And now she barely even got to see her. Eventually her grudge got so bad that she became belligerent. She picked fights with her mother just because she could, and she often spent a lot of time sulking or getting into trouble backstage just to get away from others. Even as "Miss Mocha" ran its course and apprached its series finale, Rochelle was never around. The only time she didn't seem to be nearly as upset was when she was playing with the helper Pokemon around set. Something about being around them did at least a little to curb her anger.

Vivianne was confused as to why her daughter was acting up like this all of a sudden, but the elder actress was fairly intelligent, and figured that Rochelle's anger had something to do with Pepper being cut from the show. But the girl never wanted to talk about it - every time "Miss Mocha" came up, Rochelle would get indignant and refuse to maintain a civil conversation. It didn't take long until Vivianne decided what the solution was - she needed to spend more time with her daughter. At first Rochelle was very obstinate about the idea, but after a few months of mother-daughter outings and commercials with strong family angles to them, she began to realize how much she missed her mom. There was only one problem... she was still really, really mad. It wasn't even at Vivianne anymore, it was just... in general.

The troubled Vivianne looked at all possible explanations for her daughter's learned anger. Did all that resent from being kicked from the show and being left alone for so long actually teach her to be angry? It almost drove Vivianne to tears thinking that she was responsible for this change. But she was also quick to notice the one exception to Rochelle's incredible temper problem - the pokemon on set. Perhaps it would be good to let the girl go out on her own and raise a few pokemon of her own? It might actually help her maintain her negative emotions. And who knows, maybe she could make some actual friends on her adventure! 

So she approached Rochelle with her idea, and was glad to see it met with excitement. And in order to keep being far from her mother from causing any more angst, Vivianne made a big announcement that she was moving to a different region to expand her audience and explore new movie-making opportunities. Now that her TV show was done, she needed some new pastures to expand her acting. So she and Rochelle moved out of Unova and took some time to explore the best venues to spearhead Rochelle's trainer debut and Vivianne's movie star career. As their fate would have it, they seemed particularly fond of this region by the name of Borealis... 

:bulletpink:Inventory: N/A
-Rochelle is a little embarrassed by how badly she treated her mother. She actually likes Vivianne a lot, even though she can't totally forgive her yet. Rochelle calls Vivianne every day to let her know how she's doing.
-Rochelle carries around a Substitute doll to let out her anger on. She learned to sew so that she can fix it when it tears, which is often.
-Rochelle is incredibly touchy about her hair. For some reason, she needs it to look good all the time. She gets irritated when it gets messed up (the reason she usually has her hood on, actually). She gets incredibly insulted when people touch it.
-Actually just trying to touch her in general is probably not the best idea.
-Rochelle can take on pretty much any role she wants to. Sometimes she acts like someone who is calm and mellow all the time just to see what it feels like, and usually it makes her feel bad afterwards.
-On a totally different note, if you need someone to play a role for you in your devious scheme of some sort, Rochelle's your gal!
-Rochelle hates most sweets, and has an excessively fad-like obsession with fresh fruit. 
-Her favorite Pokemon type is Fighting, but she also seems to like Fairy types quite a bit too. They're brilliant actors! Shejust doesn't realize that sometimes they're kinda subversive.

Claudius the Mankey


:bulletpink:Nickname: Claudius
:bulletpink:Gender: Male
:bulletpink:Species: Mankey
:bulletpink:OT: Prof. Larix
Ability: Anger Point
:iconfightingtypeplz: Karate Chop
:iconnormaltypeplz: Focus Energy
:icondarktypeplz: Assurance
:iconfightingtypeplz: Cross Chop
 “So your favorite type is Fighting? How powerful! You're very moved by your emotions and frustrated with those that just don't seem to understand where you're coming from. Sometimes you're a little too much to handle but it's either your way or the highway – isn't that so? With the guidance of the stars, I believe Mankey is the best partner for you! I hope you two have a long lasting companionship!”

Claudius was named for the brutal and merciless antagonist of Shakespeare's Hamlet... thankfully for all of us, he's really nothing like his namesake at all. This playful and curious pokemon is your classic 'silly monkey' archetype. He loves things that are new, and wants to get his hands on anything that is shiny or makes funny noises. He is a Mankey, however, and he is quick to anger. As Mankey also have this bizarre tendency to rampage with the rest of their colony whether or not they have any reason to, he's incredibly quick to mirror Rochelle's seemingly useless rage. When she gets angry, he gets angry, and anyone who is the target of their anger has an incredibly tough time. 
Claudius and his new trainer may be a match made in heaven, but boy oh boy is Vivianne going to be upset about this!

Odd Egg

:bulletpink:Nickname: ??
:bulletpink:Gender: ??
:bulletpink:Species: Bonsly
:bulletpink:OT: Vivianne Mocha
:bulletpink:Ability+Moves: ??

This odd egg was given to Rochelle by her mother as a way to start her Pokemon training adventure off. Vivianne meant for it to teach Rochelle how to be gentle and calm. Rochelle seems to care a lot for this egg... I mean, she does get really mad at anyone who touches it without her permission. But it's a start.

Christine the Scraggy

:bulletpink:Nickname: Christine Daae 
:bulletpink:Gender: Female
:bulletpink:Species: Scraggy*
:bulletpink:OT: Rochelle Mocha
Ability: Shed Skin
:iconfiretypeplz: Sunny Day
:iconfightingtypeplz: Brick Break
:icondarktypeplz: Feint Attack
:iconnormaltypeplz: Headbutt

Christine is a strange little lizard, even ignoring the homemade suspenders that distinguish her from most scraggy. She is a very energetic and gullible Pokemon, trusting most without giving their words a second thought. She idolizes her trainer for the sole reason that Rochelle was the one to liberate her from the tedium of holding up her pants 24/7. Christine is particularly fascinated with human apparel and fashion. She likes to decorate her suspenders with pins and buttons, and takes such small, decorative trinkets very seriously. The good news is that she'll most likely take very good care of Rochelle's future gym badges. The bad news is that she may never give them back.

Pokemon belongs to Nintendo.
Suspenders Scraggy by KayVeeDee
Suspenders Scraggy
Looks like all the sewing practice Rochelle gets from fixing her stress doll has finally become relevant
pants lizard is one of my favorite pokemon and the bg actually looks good this was totally worth the 10 hours I put into this hahaa


Deadman's Playground

What a creepy place! On her way to Nyx Oasis, Rochelle got a bit... lost. And we're most likely too bold in arguing that Rochelle is exactly not the kind of person who would want to be hanging around Nyx's less opulent counterpart late at night. Her stress doll took quite a bit of damage that night. She kept throwing it at abandoned buildings and scaring away the wild skorupi that had adopted them as their home. Claudius took his cue from Rochelle and decided to start screeching at the native dark types to empathize with his trainer's anger, in his own unique and enraged way.

But irritated as Rochelle was, she isn't a cold-hearted girl, and she was quick to call out her Mankey before he got violent. His unfortunate target was a little purple and yellow scraggy, much too small for the garments she had to protect her legs. And this sight amused and concerned Rochelle. Wasn't it inconvenient holding your pants up all the time like that? The poor lizard certainly looked inconvenience, since she refused to let go of them even to battle. She was probably unable to do much to defend herself from Claudius, let alone other, more dangerous pokemon.

The stress doll needed to be sewn up again anyway, so Rochelle decided to help the scraggy out and sew on a pair of suspenders to her unnecessarily large pants. And what joy were they met with! It was like the lizard was faced with some great revelation. So great was her enlightenment that she hailed Rochelle as something of a messiah, and more or less willingly joined her party.

Rochelle was not expecting this.


Meet Christine Daaé Mocha the shiny scraggy!! Named after Christine Daaé from 'The Phantom of the Opera', since Rochelle is naturally very big on plays and movies and will probably name all her Pokemon after play/movie characters. 
I'll add Christine to Rochelle's app in a moment! 

Pokemon and Scraggy belong to Nintendo.

Hello everyone! (at least everyone who happens to read this) ;)
Welcome to the Lair! You can call me Kay. I'm here because I want to feast on your brains love art and have a lot of Pokemon art that I know I won't be judged for online, hahaa. And yes, there is a 50% chance that my real age the age on my profile don't match up, but explaining it would require a lot of time and a brief explanation of the school district I went to kindergarten in.

I am of south Indian heritage and I'm very proud of it, so while I don't do as many traditional fine art forms as I used to as a child, I would love to talk about my culture with you! I'm a neuroscience student, but my first love is art! I'm a Pokemon fan artist for the most part, but lately I've been redesigning the way I approach my art, so some changes in the material I post might be under way. This is virtually a group account. Non fanart sometimes goes up here, but I bet 96% of my gallery is Pokemon. I do many serious original works on my own time, but they're all huge or experimental. No kidding, I prefer watercolors over all and my scanner is only so big, so...
Basically this is not the place for you if you don't like Pokemon, haha xD

I am a big fan of all sorts of 2D media! I am primarily a watercolor artist and do quite a bit digital art as well (the concentration of each in a given span of time is variable), but I love to explore mediums and will experiment with whatever I can get my hands on. I tend to like traditional styles of different cultures and mixing organic and geometric shapes in composition.

Aside from my artwork, I also like to write short stories, write songs, play piano and guitar, and play video games in my spare time. Most of my non-fan-art work (which sadly you may rarely see; I promise it's decent) is inspired by either history, mythology/religion, nature, science, fashion, or other cultures, all of which fascinate me. I also tend to be a bit on-and-off on dA. I often have sporadic multiple-artwork-uploads and then days or weeks on end of nothing, very often reflective of what I am feeling on a given day. I apologize in advance for any weirdness in my uploading schedule, because I can almost promise it'll happen although I flatter myself by thinking anyone actually cares and/or reads this far in things like this
Feel free to say hi! I don't bite <3

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your visit to Kay's gallery :clap: Try not to be eaten, okay? Okay.

:bulletred:Inspirations (this is a working list <3):bulletred:


Ethreain tagged me! This seems cute though, so I think I'll go ahead and do this anyway!

Make a post to your DA journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your DA or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.
Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:
If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.
You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. and you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

I wish for..

:bulletred:1. Art of my charas/art of things I like/anything even a silly doodle of dopamine being sad and ironic I swear if you actually draw me that dopamine thing I'd probably marry you

:bulletwhite:4. If anyone wants to join :iconpokemon-amie: with me this January, but do that thing where we decide our charas are in a relationship before we share them with each other and then we have to make it work no matter what xD because if you do want to do this with me boy do I have a surprise for you I'd actually prefer if only people I feel comfortable talking to offers to do this though, I'm not sure how I feel about plotting with people I don't know too well.

:bulletred:5. The throne of the Queen Bee, and the power to control bees

:bulletwhite:6. Commissions! I'm saving up for a semester abroad and I'm almost done setting up my paypal account~

:bulletred:7. My friends' FCs if I don't have them already! Actually anyone's FCs granted I've talked to you at least a few times
