have you ever thought about what pokemon team the hamilton characters would have if they were in the universe?
boss’ memo : this is more of an au because i don’t know what chill means and also i hAD TO CUT THIS SHORT?? oops! oh, and, and–these aren’t their full parties! these are their significant pokemon =)
alexander gets a squirtle !! he’s named her blot !!!! she doesn’t know what she’s doing and kind of thinks that everything is food but he adores her nonetheless
he also owns an audino who was traded to him by lafayette–the audino is male, named ange, and helps alex out with self care!!
audino are often used for trainers who have difficulty taking care of themself simply because their helpful nature ! they’re also good pokemon for those who have panic attacks or anxiety, as the feelers on their ears can pick up the change in heartbeat !
blot is related to john’s blastoise !
alexander also owns a hoothoot–or, rather, he has a hoothoot that follows him around and he doesn’t want to catch said hoothoot because he kind of wants a braviary,,, unnamed hoothoot likes to perch on alex’s hair !
alex is very selective with the pokemon he keeps on his team, and the pokemon he usually has out is his squirtle!
he has a dream team, which includes an alakazam !
(yes, alex wants to be the very best, like no one ever was)
john owns a blastoise named cabbage and she’s cranky and intimidating and has a scar on her right eye but she adores john with all her heart and is ready to throw down if you as much as have a negative thought about him. she’s won most of her battles, and while john isn’t the most powerful trainer–the moment cabbage appears? everyone runs !!! because cabbage is not playing around and sees all opposing pokemon as a threat to her john,,,
they met when he was fishing one day and accidentally pulled up a squirtle, which he subsequently tried to hide from everyone and as he didn’t know what to feed her, he gave her cabbage
she was quite a fan of the cabbage and the rest is history
he also owns a medicham whose name is syrup–he’s a big fan of naming his pokemon after food !! syrup knows calm mind just for him !
he hatched syrup and raised her from the beginning !
john also has a skarmory who he’s named avocado. despite the cute name, if you ever decide to have a sky battle with john and he uses avocado, you can expect your flying pokemon to be badly injured at the end,, john is quite ruthless when he battles !!
i imagine john runs a pokemon daycare !
hercules owns a cleffa named rocky because this little guy knows metronome and will absolutely destroy you (and he has an affinity for randomly selecting the ‘-punch’ moves, such as thunderpunch, ice punch, fire punch, etc)
hercules also has a volcarona named marmalade ! he only uses his volcarona if he feels he’s in danger,,, his volcarona is his pokemon that he uses for flying ! she’s pretty protective over him, and tends to be the pokemon that follows him around, rather than rocky.
(because rocky is short tempered and will attack any threat on sight while marmalade calmly waits for orders)
marmalade was his first pokemon !
he owns a leavanny named pine ! she helps him out with making clothes !! pine is his most recent pokemon, but she’s very in tune with his emotions regardless ! she’s a pretty big fan of his!
herc owns a skitty named rouge !! rouge is kind of a brat? though, he does win all the cute and smart contests !
his goodra’s named periwinkle, and she’s also v punchy,, she and rocky stay in their pokeballs because they’re always ready to pick fights with other pokemon, even during times of peace,,
he owns a kecleon named rescue, who he actually got from john! rescue is kind of meowth-like (minus the talking) in that she’s very human with her behavior. she’s very high levelled–only marmalade outranks her! she’s a trained service pokemon, and if there’s any pokemon who can help herc out if he goes nonverbal, it’s rescue!
hercules seldom trades any of his pokemon because he grows very attached to them, hence his large party
hercules runs a fairy-type gym !
lafayette owns a lucario named josephine and she’s really good for him, as she helps him in reading the atmosphere. in addition, she can also sense when he’s upset and generally helps out with his low empathy!! she mega evolves (because of course she does) and she knows she’s better than all the other pokemon,, she usually has a smug expression ! you can usually find her lurking a few feet behind lafayette !!
lafayette is the last member of the elite four that you encounter and he helps you out if you black out (which you do when someone destroys your entire party in pokemon)
he has a absol named raoul, as absols help sense disaster and raoul has saved laf’s life many-a-time !! raoul is higher levelled than josephine is, but he tends to keep to himself and as a result tends to only be released if lafayette has a bad feeling about something or is getting ready to battle !
lafayette also owns a gengar named davet, who has a habit of escaping his pokeball and hiding in lafayette’s shadow,, davet doesn’t actually mean any harm ! he’s v friendly and adores lafayette v much !
davet is a shiny! and lafayette had no idea for the longest time, as shiny and nonshiny gengars look very alike
josephine was his first pokemon, who he hatched from an egg!! he caught davet during a haunted house dare, and he met raoul when the absol tackled him in order to save him from another trainer’s pokemon gone rogue !
george (washington) has a kangaskhan he affectionately calls “nana”!! nana is older than he is, and practically raised him,, she doesn’t have a baby in her pouch, but it’s fine, as she treats george like her baby and one would know better than to mess with the fury of a mom! nana is blind in one eye, but this doesn’t mean she can’t use crunch to decimate all those who oppose ‘er. she’s v high level and terrifyingly fast,,
he also owns a dragonite named sir hog, and sir hog doesn’t seem to mind his name at all,,, he’s a tank and can shrug off several fairy or ice type moves with no problem at all !
his houndoom is named loopsy and she’s usually the pokemon he has at his side !! she’s a trained service pokemon and helps george whenever his ptsd flares up !
(george names his pokemon like he names his dogs)
he owns an empoleon named george jr who is aptly named as george jr is essentially george in pokemon form,, he hatched george jr from an egg and will affectionately refer to the large metal penguin as his son,,
george beat the prior champion, king george, and as such is the current pokemon champion!
aaron owns a bulbasaur that he’s named theodosia the third (there’s no theodosia jr yet–he’s planning ahead) and he’s vowed to protect this bulbasaur with his life,, it’s unknown if theo iii knows truly how much aaron loves her,,,
his pidgeot is named pierre and he’s larger than most pidgeots!! pierre is the most affectionate pokemon you’ll ever find,, he still thinks he’s a tiny pidgey and tries to perch on aaron’s arm / head,, aaron is suffering but he adores pierre so it’s all fine
he also owns a gulpin who enjoys trying to eat his items,, she’s close to evolving and is trying to gather more mass, and aaron is aware of this–she always looks sorry when he has to wrangle his berry case away from her, but he’s not upset,, he understands. her name is lima bean
aaron is that one guy who has at least seven pokemon just casually following him around because they like him
most of the misc pokemon are cat pokemon?? he has at least three skitty that follow him and there’s always one purugly. watching.
