T.C. started her journal as a trainer when she was 12 year old, with her starter pokemon Quincy (Cyndaquil). During her journey through the Johto region, T.C. caught several other pokemon, and also traded and rotated pokemon between her family of other trainers and breeders. T.C. worked to earn the trust and respect of her pokemon — some more easily than others — and took the time to train them for battles and condition them for local Pokeathlon contests.
T.C. has had the chance to participate in a few international tournaments, which has allowed her to compete against other trainers, cheer on her fellow competitors and friends, and learn from their strategies. Follow each tournament, she’s continued to work on her relationship with her team through more training and travels.
By the time she turned 20, T.C. shifted her focus to use her years of training experience to help others who want to work with pokemon… ((WIP, but T.C. currently has her sights set on the Galar region…))

((Original Bio)) — Two years into her journey, T.C. received word about a tournament taking place in Snowpoint — The Ultimate Battle Frontier. T.C. was eager to take on the challenge, hoping to gain more experience with her growing team and meet other aspiring trainers. Though her team was knocked out of the competition after a few early rounds, T.C. recovered from the loss and spent the rest of the time training with her pokemon, while cheering on her fellow competitors and friends and learning from their strategies. Following UBF, she continued to work on her relationship with her team through more training and travels, as well as appearing in other notable tournaments over the next few years.
By the time she turned 20, and after competing in and being a spectator in several tournaments, T.C. shifted her focus to use her years of training experience to help others who want to work with pokemon. She currently studies to be a teacher and a mentor for aspiring new trainers. She also works at the Pokeathlon dome to help earn money for her studies and caring for her pokemon, on her newly built ranch near Cherrygrove which she co-runs with her older cousin. Despite her progression with her new studies, T.C. still enjoys raising her pokemon and continues to train and battle regularly.
- T.C. is most familiar with the Johto region, but has traveled to some parts of each of the main regions (Kanto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos… and recently Alola), for various trips and tournaments.
- Aside from traditional battles, T.C. is best skilled at training pokemon for Johto’s pokeathlon, which was where her initial interest was a a trainer.
- T.C. has some basic experience with Pokemon contests, having practiced with them during certain tournament rounds.
- T.C. is less skilled with multi-battles (doubles, triple, rotation), as they were less common in Johto when she started her journey. She’s grown to be decent with double and tag battles, but still struggles with triple and rotation battles.
- T.C. is skilled with gardening berries, and particularly with creating Aprijuice/Aprishakes, which she uses to help condition her team for the Pokeathlon.
- In her younger years, T.C. tends to get easily shy around most guys, particularly meeting them for the first time; this tendency fades over time when she reaches her upper teens.
- She has a moderate fear of Poison types — particularly Poison/Bug dual types such as Beedrill and Ariados — and can get a bit uneasy around said pokemon. This does not necessarily apply to all Bug types, however, and there are some Pokemon that she can tolerate being near.
- Due to her “late start” as a competitive trainer, T.C. dislike being underestimated for her experience with pokemon battles and being seen as a pushover, which pushes her to give each battle her best effort.
