Pokemon AU GIGN Team
3 Pokemons of the operators’ choice (aka who they have grown up with. Influenced by their bio.)
3 Pokemons they got from the Rainbow (relating to their gadgets, play style and balancing the whole team. Because these three Pokemons are tactical combat resource from the Rainbow in the Pokemon universe, their movesets, abilities, IVs and EVs are influenced by the prestigious Smogon University.)
Also a little star (★) sign is the Pokemon that is usually outside of the Pokeball to have a stroll with their trainer (just like Heart Gold and Soul Silver did, or like the good old Yellow version’s Pikachu back in the days.) Kudos to @dagoth-menthol for the idea!
Lycanroc ★ - When Montagne was ten, he was often jealous of his two older brothers who had Pokemons of their own. Then one day when he found a stray Rockruff, he thought about capturing it but decided against being irresponsible. Taking the Rockruff it to the Pokemon daycare seemed like the right thing to do at the time because his father said he wasn’t ready to be a trainer, and mother taught him to be kind but responsible. But when he learned that the daycare wasn’t exactly the right place for an unregistered Pokemon, he gave himself an excuse to find a secret clearing at a local park and raise the Rockruff there. It sounded simple enough, only because he didn’t consider the possibility of having his newfound friend following him back to his home and the scratches on his legs became too obvious (PokeDex entry says, ‘When it rubs the rocks on its neck against you, that’s proof of its love for you. However, the rocks are sharp, so the gesture is quite painful!’) It was only a matter of time until his parents found out what happened, and Montagne’s father asked, “Rockruffs aren’t easy to raise. They will become quite aggressive when growing up - are you ready to handle it?” Montagne insisted, as he didn’t want to shun his new friend away. So that’s how Montagne took the first step of being a Pokemon trainer, under strict supervision of his father who was an army officer at the time. This was the very first taste of discipline in Montagne’s life that carried through into his adulthood.
Arcanine - Another partner he met during Montagne’s law enforcement career as a uniformed police officer in the National Gendarmerie. The Growlithe and Rockruff were constantly on scuffles against each other, but Montagne reigned leadership over them as they fought in a number of Pokemon battles in his career.
Blastoise - A Squirtle that was meant to be trained as a shield against high impacts, but it refused to be in any military trainings. Knowing how to deal with scared children and alike (thanks to his experience of looking after his younger sister and mother who used to be a teacher,) Montagne volunteered to train the scaredy-cat Squirtle. This is when Montagne learned and honed his skills of fostering young individuals to their full potential, and the now Blastoise became the representation of Montagne’s temperament and combat styles (the shield bearer, high in defense.)
Venusaur - Another wall with its ‘Thick Fat’ ability, which reduces the damage it takes from Fire and Ice type moves.
Bastiodon - Symbol to his position as a dependable wall to hide behind.
Escavalier - When given a choice to choose a Steel type Pokemon, Montagne chose this one as he liked how it will ‘-face opponents bravely even when in trouble.’
Metagross ★ - From a Beldum she received as a gift from her parents who encouraged their children to excel in mathematics, science and technology. Young Twitch was fascinated upon reading the PokeDex entry that stated, ‘instead of blood, a powerful magnetic force courses throughout BELDUM’s body.’ She came to wonder whether her Beldum was a living being or an inanimate being that’s imitating a live Pokemon. The curiousity later developed into robotics and programming during her teen years. Her and Metagross accomplished so much together, as the PokeDex also states, ‘with four linked brains, it’s more intelligent than a supercomputer, and it uses calculations to analyze foes.’
Alomomola - A Pokemon she captured in 2015, for a mission that was led by Lion. They were to assist medical personnel fighting the epidemic, and the Alomomola helped Twitch to extend her caring hand by healing those in need (PokeDex says, ‘it gently holds injured and weak Pokémon in its fins. Its special membrane heals their wounds.’) Unfortunately things went south and it caused a rift between her and Doc against Lion. Alomomola would frequently hug Twitch from time to time when it senses her anguish, and Twitch knows the Pokemon is thinking back to the tragedy that struck them all those years ago.
Gardevoir - As Twitch and Metagross kept researching the way to implement empathy into AI, they felt quite stuck with their progress. She wondered if the mysteriously caring nature of her Alomomola would be of any hint, but it was near impossible to deduce why the water Pokemon can be so selfless because, well, it naturally is. Then when she learned about Ralts and their, ‘horn on their head to sense human emotions,’ she became immensely curious. It was easy to find one as she traded with a friend back in Kalos, but as soon as she saw the Pokemon it was hard to not feel attached to such a cutie pattootie. She occasionally observed its horn, and how it shifted from its head to chest when evolving into Gardevoir. Brain over mind, logic to emotions. Twitch’s bond with Gardevoir led her research to somewhere, and as of now it still remained as a vague hint rather than a solid solution. Still, she is grateful of the support that Gardevoir displays whenever her mood droops, and it appears that Alomomola approves of having another Pokemon who will pamper their trainer.
Manectric - Its electricity inducing body and mane fascinated Twitch. She later drew an inspiration from its hair to make tasing needles.
Durant - The way it crawls serves as an excellent look out, and Twitch often straps the tasing needle dispenser on its back to control it remotely.
Persian - For balance. Twitch didn’t know her Metagross could exert protectiveness over her Gardevoir when this Alolan Persian is near them. Little does it know that Gardevoirs are Psychic/Fairy type, so an Alolan Persian that’s a Dark type can’t threaten it at all. (Both Metagross and Gardevoir were introduced back in Generation 3, where Gardevoirs were only a Psychic type. Then in Generation 6, the Gardevoirs were newly discovered as Psychi/Fairy.)
Kecleon ★ - A symbolism to Rook’s adaptable nature. Ever since he was young, Rook was grown up to watch all sorts of jobs that his mother did. Being curious and highly observant became his second nature, and that’s how he was able to spot Kecleons at Route 6. It was close to the Parfum Palace, a place his mother worked as a sommelier at the time. Rook who was bored out of his mind followed after the trails of floating zig zags, and threw his body to hold onto one that couldn’t run away fast enough (PokeDex entry: ‘Kecleon is capable of changing its body colors at will to blend in with its surroundings. There is one exception—this Pokémon can’t change the zigzag pattern on its belly.’) For some reason it didn’t seem to mind that a young boy was able to find it, so they became friends and he eventually registered the Pokemon into his Pokeball. Rook then since learned to be adaptable and flexible, as he was fascinated at how many different moves his Kecleon seemed to learn. Rook also sometimes visit Move Tutors who can revive all the othe moves that Kecleon forgot.
Dodrio (nicknamed Rosalie, Liana and Dephine when another head appeared upon evolving into Dodrio) - Met as a Doduo he used to race against. Teen Rook had a phase where he rode a bicycle almost every day, and the Route 5 - Versant Road was the famous spot for cyclers. He saw Doduos running in a pack and thought racing against them would heighten his ability to ride as fast as he could. Of course he couldn’t win against them, but one day he lost the control of his handle and banged into one of the Doduos. Himself and the bike weren’t too hurt, but the Doduo seemed to have at least sprained its ankle. Feeling guilty as heck, Rook quickly captured and brought it to the Pokemon Center. The injury was minor and Rook soon released it at Route 5, but ever since then the Doduo ran alongside Rook whenever he was out to bike. Their friendship bloomed and they soon became good friends.
Carbink - When a teen Rook went to see what his stone mason father was doing, he saw how gorgeous and marvelous those rocks can become. So like any teen who would sprint out wherever his legs to carry him, Rook rode on a bicycle to venture a little away from his home at Lumiose city and arrived at the Reflection cave. The place was already known for its mesmerising and glossy surface that reflects any onlookers, so he was simply there to carve some out and bring it back. Meeting the Carbink was a pleasant surprise and he caught it after a long and arduous battle (Kecleon stood until the last moment while his then Doduo was knocked out on the first turn.)
Carracosta - Along with his Carbink, this Pokemon of high defense gave Rook the idea when designing the Armor Pack. Rook quite likes its sturdy shells, but soon came to adore the ‘naughty’ and mischivous nature.
Sylveon - High in Special Defense, and the PokeDex that says, ‘by releasing enmity-erasing waves from its ribbonlike feelers, Sylveon stops any conflict,’ goes well with Rook’s optimist attitude.
Rotom-Mow - For balance. It scares his Carbink and Dodrio, so Kecleon is always there to whip the Rock type move ‘Ancient Power’ to convey its message, “Keep it down!”
Blissey ★ - As Doc’s family is respected in military and medicine (in the Pokemon Universe, the Pokemon Centers,) young Doc met many Blisseys and Chanceys. He was entrusted with an egg that soon hatched to Happiny, and looked after the Pokemon ever since then. Teen Doc had been content to be just a trainer who walked around to share his hand-made potion that’s made from his Chancey’s egg (he studied to make sure his Chancey didn’t have to suffer by making too many eggs a week.) He felt like the need to be doctor wasn’t necessary, as he could do just fine without succumbing into ‘family traditions.’ Then during his second year at the university, he saw what medical help was really for those people in need, he decided to put his very best effort to serve and protect. Chancey and Doc worked tirelessly, and the deep bond had the Pokemon to evolve into Blissey.
Shuckle - A Pokemon Doc met while studying toxicology and ecotoxicology. Learning how ‘the berries stored in its vaselike shell eventually become a thick, pulpy juice,’ and the effect of its Berry Juice being able to heal Pokemons made Doc wonder about the biological agents and their effects on at-risk populations and damaged environments. As Shuckle takes less damage against Poison type attacks, he received a lot of help from this Pokemon.
Slowking - Doc was researching further about toxicology and found out a Slowbro is ‘naturally dull to begin with and have lost its ability to feel pain due to Shellder’s seeping poison on its tail.’ He set out to find the Pokemon and the supposed poison, but came in contact with a Slowking instead. Upon capturing and investigating, the Pokemon could operate tools and Doc soon learned that the Shellder’s poison on its head was the source of intelligence. Feeling a little contradicted, Doc has been keeping close eye on his new assistant who is willing to help his cause of finding peace and healing in Doc’s career.
Miltank - Along with Blissey’s egg, this Miltank and its Milk Drink became the main source of Doc’s STIM solution. It also acts as a wall with move Toxic and self-healing, just like Doc’s willingness to be the last standing man in hostile situations.
Togekiss - The move Heal Bell works great when Doc pairs up with other operators for double, triple and dynamax battles. Also the ability Serene Grace and Air Slash is quite lethal (as the ability increases the effect of a move and the Air Slash has the chance of 30% to flinch the opposing Pokemons.)
Ampharos - For balance, but Doc also chose the beacon-like Pokemon to act as a visible make-shift Pokemon Centre for his allies in need.
