Hey Guys! Dark Pulse Reporting in on Spenstar's Movements, Since I lost against him in that muddy bog, I've been tracking his battles to learn his Stra- -I mean... We've become really good friends! ah-haa-ah *nervous Laugh* Anyway, this is how the Battle was decided: Backstory for Spenstar (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Backstory for Spenstar (open) Backstory for Spenstar (close) Spenstar just brutally lost a battle in the park he used to go to all those years ago, when his life wasn't completely messed up. The loss and the jeering from the little kids watching brought back painful memories of bullies who used to beat him in that same park and mock him. It also brought back memories of his sister, as the two used to work together to defeat the bullies, but now she's nothing short of evil and crazy. Overwhelmed by greif and frustration, a restless Spenstar walkes through the park at night, trying to let go of the old memories. That's when he saw Kalex and they began a battle; maybe this is what Spenstar needs to get better! Ok, Simple enough, The arena Does have a small pond, unlike when Spenstar was a kid- oh, wow... Spenstar's really Opening up there... Maybe I should go look for that sister of his *cough cough* - anyway! Let's get this battle underway!

Rabbi was adventerous and wanted to see the world, so the group's leader Stratagem allowed a battle between Spenstar and Rabbi that would decide the latter's fate. Spenstar won, and Rabbi joined his team. Rabbi and Brick quickly became best friends due to being the youngest team members, and Spenstar spent about a week after capturing Rabbi flying to faraway places by airline, to fuffil Rabbi's desire to see the world. Apart from travel, Rabbi's passion is battling, and is itching to experience its first battle. Spenstar is proficent at speaking and understanding the language of Pokemon just as well as his own, as a result of spending years with Pokemon as his only family. He nicknamed this Pokemon "Rabbi" because he noticed (and appreciated) a distinct Jewish accent in the way it speaks. For reasons unknown, this accent was not present in any other members of Rabbi's original group, with the exception of the lead Stratagem.

About Puff: When Spenstar first saw Puff, she was an abandoned pink egg in the Pokemon day-care. Spenstar offered to buy the egg for two Trainer Counters, an offer which the day-care man accepted. While traveling the world with Rabbi, Spenstar also took care of the egg, giving it love and affection that a Pokemon egg should get. When the egg hatched, the Pokemon inside was revealed to be a pink female Monohm, which Spenstar named Puff. Since then, Spenstar has considered Puff to be like his own child, and has been the best father figure he can be for her, and she loves him with all her heart as a result. The other Pokemon on the team welcomed Puff and think of her as their little sister. Brick specifically takes on a "big brother" role for Puff, perhaps because the role of "youngest Pokemon on team" has shifted from Brick to Puff. Puff is the first Shiny Monohm ever discovered, which gives her a tough of individuality no other Monohm can boast.
