Alrighty, here goes a profile attempt! Let me know if I need to adjust anything. o=

Beyond what can be viewed, Archie stands at 5'7 and weighs about 146 lbs. Fond of more sophisticated attire such as blazers and dressy pants, but can handle wearing more appropriate adventuring clothes and gear if a situation calls for it. Carries a fairly small hiking bag on his back with a sleeping roll beneath it, several pockets containing various items he's either purchased (potions, antidotes, ect.), discovered (berries, dropped items), and some miscellaneous items like a brush and mirror for personal use. As pictured, he tends to tie his rather long hair into a ponytail so it doesn't get too out-of-hand. Unpictured is the severe case of bedhead he tends to wake up with after a night's rest (necessitating the brush and mirror).Name:
Archibald 'Archie' ReinhardtAge:
Laidback and relaxed, for all the energy Archie has, he rarely does much with it all. Something of a sociable fellow, he faces most days with a smile on his face, irregardless of the bad that can potentially happen in it. Often times he appears to be flaky to others, usually well-dressed and more likely to talk down a situation rather than get physically involved... However, his tongue is as sharp as anyone elses, and under the niceties and well-mannered behavior, he can and most likely will trash-talk a foe in the most sophisticated way possible. He doesn't like raising his fists to attack another, but he has enough self-defense capabilities to deter or deflect basic attacks from another person. He holds great care for friends and his Pokemon alike, and if they feel a problem is occuring that needs to be corrected, he's never too far behind them ready to lend assistance any way he can. As a waiter and occasional soft-drink maker for his local cafe, he's very polite and patient with most people he meets, and this transfers over to his fighting style. Calm, rational thoughts and a few planned moves usually see him through most basic encounters, but he hasn't ventured enough to see just how expansive pokemon battles can truly be. Biography:
Archibald was born in Diamante City to a fairly above-average family, raised on decent wealth and proper social upbringing. Though sheltered in his earliest years, he often wandered about the city, having gotten lost within it more times than he cared to admit. Seeing other trainers with pokemon inspired him to want to get one of his own, an endeavor his parents would find to be much more difficult than either anticipated. For years Archie went on without one as his parents felt it was too dangerous for him, so instead they researched the various pokemon of the world and brought him pictures of what to choose. Much to their dismay, he picked an adorable purple dragon with black fur upon its form named Deino, whose temperament was grossly unmentioned both in the image they saw and in its position. Traveling the region to come to a locale that held them, his parents lent their son the pokemon they had in order to defend himself and properly capture his own. What followed was nearly several hours worth of searching, occasional getting lost, and roughed up by wild pokemon, but ultimate Archie proved victorious and finally caught his own Deino. Holding it as his greatest achievement, catching it also instilled within him a sense of exploration and responsibility that made him want to take care of it like a sibling. He would come to find out the Deino was much more rambunctious and rough than any image would ever properly convey, but he struggled to eventually earn its trust through feeding it, as he was unable to become a trainer at this point.
Upon his sixteenth birthday, Archibald officially went to get registered for a license as a Pokemon Trainer, surprising his family who expected him to continue to live a calm and peaceful life now that he had a pokemon he wanted. Much the opposite, obtaining Deino made him want to see what else he was missing out on in life that he couldn't experience at home, with his mother offering him a suggestion before he immediately set off in the world: to get a job. Realizing that no adventure could go unfunded, he took his mothers' advice to heart and began to search around Diamante City for jobs he could potentially apply for. The hunt was far from easy, as competition existed everywhere and none of the high-paying positions were easy for him to do. Ultimately he decided to start small and applied for a position at a local restaurant, establishing himself as a waiter. Though the work wasn't glamorous, it allowed him to meet friendly faces and help bring a little bit of life and friendliness to the business, but things didn't really take off until he was given an emergency position as a softdrink mixer. While he served the most basic of what people wanted, he eventually grew curious and started to make a smoothie for himself made from Nanab and Rawst Berries he usually brought with him to feed Deino. Though his manager had chided him at first for being wasteful with ingredients meant for their customers, he eventually tasted the treat and realized it came out alot better than he anticipated. With an agreement to obtain more berries and ingredients for even more smoothies and other drinks, he was asked to research other potential flavors and variations to serve to customers who were tired of the same thing day in and day out. The move eventually became a surprising success, attracting more customers to enjoy unique berry beverages and even consider shipping throughout the region. Now effectively filling in for two positions at work. Archibald found himself quite content with his job and spent his years working at the establishment to build his funds up.
When the restauraunt had become popular enough to attract others wanting to work, he requested a leave of absence to begin exploring the world on a journey as a pokemon trainer, though promised he would drop in from time to time to say hi. With business stable and profits being made, his manager gave the okay to leave and wished him the best in his ventures. At this point, he was 20 when he finally left Diamante City of his own accord. Combining the money he saved along with what his parents had offered, he bought himself a pack to hold the essentials (Potions, Antidotes, various Berries, wraps), Pokeballs, and a sleeping roll for outdoor resting. It was the bare minimum, but it would serve him well as he traveled the region. However, between overzealous trainers, aggressive pokemon, and surprisingly treacherous terrain at times, he came to realize adventuring wouldn't be as fun as he originally anticipated it would be, but he stuck with it. Arguably one of the most recent events that made him want to quit was being haunted by a suspiciously aggressive entity of some sort, causing him restless nights and paranoid days. With some creative reliance on Deino, the pair eventually discovered a Spiritomb as the culprit, delighting in harassing travelers as far as it could. Engaging the wily pokemon in battle, Archie and Deino ultimately came out ontop, capturing the Spiritomb and adding another capable fighter to his ranks. Unfortunately for him, it was a fair bit unruly, and still proves to be at this current time. Though Archie feels it'll be a while before he can get Spiritomb to like either him or his Deino, he's ready and willing to work as hard as he can with it as he did with Deino to get it to trust him. For now, his adventure continued, wanting to see what else the world would decide to throw at him next.Pokemon: Deino (Grimms)

Fairly vanilla. He enjoys cute girls, no matter how sweet or sour they can be (Likes most personalities, from sweet to tomboyish). Fairly suave, he attempts to woo ladies with initiative, but it can easily be lost to more forceful and direct girls. (He's great with most girls and is happy to lead for them, but he's got a surprising weakness to being subdued that one wouldn't expect unless they invade his personal space).Offs:
Dislikes most things considered too disgusting for the norm (Scat, waterspots, vore, vomit, ect), and isn't fond of victimizing girls in the slightest (does not like extreme or non-consensual activities).Anything else:
- His P-Link takes the form of an armlet that manifests information over it when accessed via holographic screen. It's specific activation command is 'PokeGear Network, Standby'
- Wears glasses to help offset somewhat poor eyesight
- Carries a fair bit of currency on him, though not enough to fund his entire adventure as he may tend to spend on friends for food and lodging. Usually looks for temporary jobs on his adventures
