This was such a random concept
I had an awful artblock, and filled the void by re-watching Pokemon movies.
Then I got the idea to select two random names with an random name generator, and 6 random pokemon using the Random Pokemon Generator
, then draw the trainers with their Pokemon. Which was fun, because I normally do it the other way around. I design something, then give it a fitting name followed by whatever else I'd like to add (like pokemon, animal companion, back story whatever.) This opened for making characters that I would never normally create. You should try it, it's great!
So this is Lionel and Gene, they travel together. I think they should meet PKMNtrainer!Jenna at some point. Lionel started with a Meowth and Gene started with a Nidoran. They grew up together in the same town and were supposed to part ways to start their separate pokemon journeys, but they kept running into each other and decided to go together. Gene don't naturally have purple hair, she just likes to match her Nidoking. Nidoking and Persian have a bromance/rivalry thing going on. I haven't decided on any names or story further.
edit: Nidoking is "Woofer" and Persian is "SilK". I used a random pet name generator.
