current active squad:
prinplup, female. torrent
notes: extremely arrogant. considers herself the leader of the team. hates accepting favors and never says thank you. difficult to work with, but tries hard in a battle. can't say if that makes her any better. only friend in the entire team is morei.
→ morei rice candy
sanslash, female. sand veil
notes: the first sandslash in the league! well-intentioned @ the rest of the team, but aloof anyway. to everyone she pretends she is Tough and Scary but she's a sucker for a good poffin or cuddles. easily bribed with food. dislikes actual socialization and usally only found hanging around ice cream sundae kid or pipsnap. likes battles so she can vent her entire frustration at what is reality. previously known to study ethics with silverdust, but currently between thoughts and out of study. busy learning how to poffin, but this is a secret.
→ silverdust patch
cinccino, male. technician
notes: from the Omskivar. more like the actual leader of the team; well-experienced and scholarly. reads books in his spare time and usually has one with him. currently reading game of thrones. supportive of neuron's career, but only on the scholarly side, because he wants to convince him that he doesn't have to fight - but neuron is not being convinced. anyway, silverdust usually has to be wheedled into battle. i don't trust him.
noibat, female. infiltrator
notes: gift from master eif, christmas 2015. i think it was 2015 anyway. a member of the Trio Soul Team with souleaf and soul zap. together they go on explorations. the most impulsive and curious of the Trio Soul team and... of the entire pokemon team. often found sitting on trainer's head or shoulder, and might have a little leash thing so she doesn't keep getting distracted and lost.
riolu, male. inner focus
notes: gift from nira, secret santa 2015. the team baby although he tries very hard to convince everyone else he isn't. unfortunately, he has a weakness for coloring books, and adores drawing. a bit of an up-and-coming artist. best with crayons.
abra, female. magic guard
notes: pompous, although she's decent with turning it down so she can get along with others. looks up to pipsnap as true royalty, although pipsnap doesn't know this and thinks dreamling is making fun of her. hates studying, prefers battling, and looks down on silverdust. although silverdust looks down on her. they might have a rivalry thing going on.
meowth, male. technician

togedemaru, iron barbs
notes: supportive of everyone. gives good hugs. even supports sea fluff's plan to take over the world. also a hufflepuff. best friends with ice cream sundae kid. they might go learn how to make poffins with morei sometime, but that is a secret because morei is Tough.

cherubi, female. chlorophyll
notes: gift from calculus squirtle, christmas 2017. also part of the no global warming club, but thinks there's a better way than taking over the world; really she's not sure about what she's doing here yet and just wants a friend.

notes: the roundest not-round member of the team, i guess. occasionally pretends to be actually round, but says she qualifies because of her pom-poms. no one has decided to contest her on this. it's not like not-round pokemon can't be on the team! she just wants to be One of Them i guess. probably has abandonment issues and strives to fit in. a good bird.
