Name: Daniel Crawler
Personality: Crawler is rash, confident and a center for attention. Battling by instinct and improvisation more than anything else, which surprisingly works out for him most of the time. But as a result it's also a weakness, one which can land his smart mouth in trouble as often as it helps. Towards Pokemon, Crawler is very empathetic, especially towards Pokemon considered weak or made fun of for some other trait. In all, Crawler is a good natured person with a short supply of patience. As he always has to keep moving forward.
Biography: Daniel was born in Nacrene City to parents who were never Pokemon trainers. His mother was an aspiring artist, while his father ran a Pokemart. Daniel however had big dreams of being the Unova champion. The mild mannered boy after turning ten, purchased a Pokeball with his allowance from his father, then journeyed into Pinwheel Forest to catch his first Pokemon. There, he encountered a Venipede. Throwing his new Pokeball, he managed to catch the weak bug type. However, Daniel was estatic, he quickly ran back home to show his friends and fellow rookie trainers. But upon seeing his new Pokemon he and Venipede were immediately laughed at. His peers made fun of him and his Pokemon, calling them both weak.
Crawler challenged the ringleader to a battle. And lost. Then he lost his next battle then his next one and the one after. After losing time and again. Crawler believed that he and Venipede were losing because he was too soft on it. So he became cold and hard on Venipede. Driving it harder and harder. Venipede however never gave up. And tried it's hardest. Challenging his rival to another battle, Crawler lost again. With all his built up frustration Daniel abandoned Venipede in the forest, ashamed of both himself and his Pokemon. As he tried to catch another Pokemon. But running into a wild Pokemon which attacked him, Venipede appeared and defended him. Venipede however was no match, but seeing Venipede fight so hard for him. Crawler realized that he was wrong all along. Rushing Venipede to the Pokemon Center it was there that Daniel swore to Venipede. That they would both work as long and hard as it took to earn the respect from their peers. Not just for themselves, but all bug pokemon and their trainers called weak. That they would become a inspiration for others to follow their dreams. By becoming Champion of Unova.
They would do it together.
Naming Venipede 'Crawlerpede' to represent their new connection and bond as partners. Crawler embarked on his journey, choosing to specialize in Bug Pokemon. Eventually acquiring a team of powerful bug types he bonded with as partners and family. Crawlerpede travelled by his side, almost never going inside of his Pokeball. A promise that Crawler made to it so that they would always be within sight of each other. After six years of travelling, training and battling he challenged the Unova League. He made it to the finals before losing to the current Champion. Unphased, Daniel trained for another year and challenged the League again, this time winning. Now, Crawler and his team are renowned not only among the best bug type specialist. But numbered in among the best trainers in the world.
