RD Bio - Rupert the Toxicroak by TamarinFrog RD Bio - Rupert the Toxicroak by TamarinFrog
characters mentioned in the bio:
Veruka: fav.me/d62cbze
Vincent: fav.me/d63fxxu
Elisa: fav.me/d6onbw1
Vanilla: fav.me/d421n0g

And here is Rupert! I just finished this so there is a chance I'll be fixing/adding things through out the day.

Both Ve and Vi had a somewhat dark pasts so let's have something more normal and cheerful. Nothing major or life changing about his history but I am really happy I was finally able to make the sweet honey tree story canon. :D I had that idea since the beginning of RD series but alas, I had this stupid "must-follow-my-game" rule. Sigh... I'm so glad I am ditching that aspect.

And those who don't know, Vanilla is a lopunny character that belongs to *Kikulina. RupertxVanilla was originally a fan pairing but we liked it enough and decided to make it canon. The Amity Square meeting is based on a fan fiction made by ~pynni and there is a fan comic, drawn by ~dynamo5 based on that fan fiction. This comic is canon and you should totally read it if you haven't already! dynamo5.deviantart.com/gallery… READ IT! :stare:

Funny fact: I wrote "croagunk" wrong every single time in this bio before fixing it.

I'm confused...is Rupert's father a Makuhita or not. In order to know the egg move Cross Chop, his father would've had to be a Machop, Machoke, or a Machamp.
But I guess that,  like Napoleon, you could've changed his heritage for the reboot. Any way...just wonderingShrug .

His grandfather is a machoke. Makuhita can learn cross chop too by breeding.

Oops...just looked it up. Turns out the Makuhita Pokemon can also learn Cross Chop as an egg move. 
But do Pokemon also inherit egg moves from their father if it was there father's egg move also. 
Ahhhhh...breeding confuses me I think I've fainted. !!!!

If he was caught in the wild then why does he have an egg move?

Because in my head canon, even wild pokemon can have egg moves. Heck! Dawn's buneary had ice beam!

Man I am loving all of these new bios and the loads of new information we are learning about the characters. Although Rupert has never been my favorite RD character I do really like his personality and his carefree attitude. Also in terms of fanfiction he makes for great comic relief situations. (Like when I turned him into a chick in my Valentine's Day fic)

Once again great work on this and all the current bios. Can't wait to see Ross and Matthew.

Curious - how can he be afraid of fire if it doesn't have that much of an affect on him?
Reply
:icontamarinfrog:
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Dry skin ability basically gives you a weakness to fire. So it does affect him a lot. And besides, you can be afraid of fire even if you are not weak to it. It's kinda basic fear.

A Pokemon with Dry Skin ability will get damaged when Sunny Day is activated; the move to cause this is a Fire-Type move. Plus, Fire-Type moves do more damage, as opposed to if the Pokemon doesn't have Dry Skin ability.

"My favorite drinkin buddy, lets get some Cola XD" (Skyrim reference lol)

Daaawww I kinda like how he tasted some of Elizabeth's honey instead of the random honey idea, I had this whole fic planned out to that event XD Oh well, I'll still write it anyway.

I always figured Vincent was stronger then him physically.

I find it interesting that he likes sweets but has a relaxed nature. Pokemon with a speed reducing nature are described in game as disliking sweet things. Maybe that is why they have a calming effect on him instead of jolting him up.

On the part tha talks about his encounter with Vanilla, you wrote this: "Both got a crush on each other and are currently an item."

English isn't my first language either, but did you wrote it right? o.O I'm not sure if you were referring to "currently in a relationship" or that Rupert got Vanilla's ribbon (by the way, shouldn't it be on his items box? =P). And... how did his parents met on the wild? XD

"Being an item" is an English saying for that two people are dating. It's right. :)

The item box is for accessories/items the character use all the time and are seen in their design.
The hariyama could be wild released pokemon.

Really like Ruprt's new look. I now you based it off of Donny's new look, but whenever I try to imagine him talking, I don't hear Rob Paulsen's voice. For some reason I always imagine him sounding like Phil Lamarr or Bumper Robinson.

Fascinating history. I am wondering how Rupert's parents met. I didn't know hariyamas could be found in Pastoria. Unless his father was released there? Maybe that's it.

I also wonder how a croagunk could leave the marsh safari in Pastoria. He must've been one determined amphibian.

As for his relationship, I doubt its authenticity; lopunny aren't allowed in Amity Square, and Rupert couldn't even have met Vanilla as a buneary there because croagunk and toxicroak aren't allowed in Amity Square either!

Your bit about the effects of the Payapa drink on Rupert made me wonder if payapa reduces a toxicroak's psychic weakness once or twice. Toxicroak has a double weakness, does payapa reduce one weakness or both?

TamarinFrog Featured By Owner May 4, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
The Amity Square was changed to a park for all pokemon in the story. We didn't follow the game rules there.

I'd say he now only takes double damage of psychic moves (instead of 4x)
