Name (last, first): Haley
Nickname(s): Lily (only to be used by her parents. ONLY.)
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Birthday: April 16
Haley was born in Petalburg City, Hoenn.
She spent her childhood in fascination of the different kinds of Pokémon. Because of this, she dreamt of being a Pokémon professor one day. Before her 13th birthday, she decided to become a Pokémon trainer to start with, where in through travelling and battling, she will know more about Pokémon which will help her achieve her dream. True enough, a few months after her birthday, her father gave her ferry ticket to Johto, where she decided to travel first.
Meeting Professor Elm, Haley receives her first Pokémon who will aid her in her journey; a Chikorita who grew a fondness to her. She was told by the professor about the gym nearest to the city she is in, and that gym is the Violet Gym in Violet City. Confident in her abilities, she traveled to the said destination with her Chikorita beside her. Along the way, she encountered a Pidgey being somewhat bullied by a group of Geodude who seem disturbed by the tiny bird's presence. Unable to stand the cries of the poor Pokémon, Haley, with the help of Chikorita, aided the Pidgey who looked like it was newly-hatched. After the incident, the Pidgey followed Haley and later on, in helped her achieve her first two Johto badges.
However, Haley was called back to return to Hoenn after her mother was diagnosed with a rather serious illness. Because of this, she was to stay at home for almost three years and was not allowed to leave by her father until her mother's full recovery. She managed to study about Pokémon, though, not through personal encounter but through her mother's books that happened to be her mother's guide books in the past. Haley studied and studied, so that she would be able to know many things that could help her once she starts to travel again.
Her travel soon went back to its pace. However, Haley decided not to continue it in Johto, thinking that it could be better if she traveled her original region first. Having that said, her Bayleef was left under the care of Professor Birch and was given a Torchic as a starter Pokémon. Her Pidgeotto traveled with her as well, though it was only used in battle a few times. She was able to win all eight badges of the Hoenn League. Steven Stone played a large role in her growth as a Pokémon trainer. Steven used to give her helpful lectures and he also invited her in some occasions as well, which she would gladly accept. Roxanne, the Rustboro gym leader, also played a role in Haley's development. While being gym leader, she is also one Haley looked up to and sees as a contender when it comes to knowledge in battling.
Not long after, winning all eight Hoenn League badges, Haley started yet another journey in Sinnoh where Professor Rowan, her father's personal friend, met her. She chose Piplup as her starter Pokémon and left the rest of her team with Professor Birch. While on the way challenging Pokémon gyms, Haley also participated in contests and garnered three contest ribbons, two belonging to Bayleef, which she took from Professor Birch from time to time, and one to Piplup. Her journey in Sinnoh lasted longer than that of Hoenn and she was still able to gather all eight gym badges. Along the way, she met a trainer named Riley. Riley trained with Haley once in Iron Island, toughening her half-steel Empoleon before she challenged Byron in Canalave Gym. The two shared a friendly close bond yet Haley looked up to Riley as a rival when it comes to Pokémon battles. Travelling to Snowpoint City, she met the gym leader, Candice. At first, the two were colder than the weather with each other, however, they both loosened up after Haley's victory in their gym battle. Still, Candice looked at Haley as a rival in Pokémon battling and Haley didn't feel any different towards Candice.
A few months after her victory in the Sunyshore Gym, Haley decided to aim to higher heights that while studying to become a Pokémon Professor, she will also try to scale a higher level in Pokémon training. This decision leads her to the conclusion of travelling and defeating more gyms in distant regions. So after Sinnoh, she set out to go back to her first roots, Johto. Here, she'll do her best and defeat all gym leaders, as well as the Kanto gym leaders so she could toughen up her team and pick her strongest cards to battle with her in all the regions' Pokémon League.
Personality: Haley is a friendly person, yet she chooses not to trust anyone too easily. More so, Haley is rather cold and quiet towards people she doesn't know, yet warm and all giggly towards her friends. She's quite the happy person, always smiling and has a lot of energy. She doesn't get mad easily, and pissing her off is quite a challenge. On another note, when Haley's really upset or angry, she can do unpleasant things, things which are much unexpected for her to do. She is also different in battle when one tries to offend her in the middle of it. Also, when Haley starts on something and starts to acts serious, it's HARD to make her stop.

Character Opinions (Haley's Point Of View)
Ash (Red): I think he's a really decent Pokémon trainer. His strategy and Pokémon team is really something. Besides that, I think he's really nice and very friendly.
Gary (Blue Oak/Green Okido): Not much to say about him. I've only met him once but he's a bit cold and arrogant.
Jimmy/Ethan (Gold): I ran into him once. I couldn't deny that I see that he likes Marina a lot. He's quirky but has a lot of potential in him. I'd surely like to travel with him some time.
Silver: He has good looks, no doubt about it. But I guess he's too proud or something, something about him drives me away from him. Maybe… maybe something about him is not really right.
Marina (Crystal): A really friendly girl. I admire the way she throws Pokéballs. She's pretty cute too. I think she and Jimmy would look good together.
Brendan (Ruby): I hadn't spent much time with him. I only battled him once but that was it. He's got some tough Pokémon with him. Perhaps he's a good person too.
May (Sapphire Birch/Odomaki): May… She's my best friend. We've known each other since we were little kids. Yeah, she can be a bit clueless sometimes but I admire her determination and patience. She's really nice and she's always there when I needed someone to talk to.
Wally: I've only seen him once. I believe that despite his fragile body, he can be a great trainer one day.
Emerald: Never met.
Lucas (Diamond): He's a nice guy. We travelled together for some time he reached the city he was supposed to be dropped off at. He's really cool and really… funny.
Barry (Pearl): That boy is always in a hurry. He told me once that he'd fine me if I didn't arrive fast enough. I think he likes Dawn too. But yeah, he's a good person… just a little aloof or something.
Dawn (Platinum/Platina Berlitz): She's a nice girl I met in Sinnoh. Like me, she likes contests too. We became close friends and I got to travel with her too. We have a lot in common and she always had good things to say.
Lyra: I've met her in Sinnoh the same time I received my Riolu egg. Hmm… Nothing much to say about her... but I think she's quite nice.
Brock/Takeshi: He's an awesome cook! I didn't realize that he's a gym leader until I traveled Kanto. He's a good friend of mine, no doubt about it.
Misty/Kasumi: She's a really pretty girl and a graceful water Pokémon trainer. I admire her battling style too.
Orange Islands (never met)
Falkner: That hot-headed bird man!! I don't know what his problem is but he always gets in my damn nerves..!! Hmm… but that was years ago. Upon my return, he's a more matured person, quite different from the Falkner I ran into in the past. I like him better now… Now that he changed, that's when I realized how cool and handsome he really is.
Bugsy: He's fine. I'm amazed he never gets itchy around his bug Pokémon.
Whitney: Hmm… She's a cry baby… I think? I… don't really much mind her. Hm, but I think she's a formidable opponent anyway.
Morty: He has a wonderful aura surrounding him. A bit mysterious though, I can't really tell what he's thinking. He's a strong trainer. I could learn a lot from him.
Chuck: He reminds me of Crasher Wake from Sinnoh. I don't know why.
Jasmine: She's a really nice girl. If I ever had a little sister, I'd want someone who's like her. She's very friendly and very kind.
Pryce: Cold as his gym… I don't really have anything to say about him except that he's a bit grumpy. He seriously needs to warm up.
Claire: She gave me a tough time at the gym!! Seriously! But because of her, I learned how to appreciate my Flygon more. She's a wonderful trainer… and a really strong one too. She's just a little bit prissy in my opinion.
Roxanne: I consider her my rival in knowledge about Pokémon. She's smart and it was tough getting past her. She's miss know-it-all and a proud honors student. She didn't have to brag about it though.
Brawly: That guy… he's really mister cool guy. Well he is, actually. He's a really cool person. He's not much of a challenge in the gym to be honest… but his strategy is not so bad.
Watson: He's really funny and really kind. His Pokémon are really tough too.
Flannery: Ah… my dear friend. At first, I didn't really want to be around her because she has a weird approach as a gym leader. But later on, we managed to get along well. Sometimes we train together; sometimes we just hang out in the hot springs. I just… hate the way our hair looked almost alike.
Norman: He's that nice guy who looked after mom when I was gone. He's no joke in gym battling, though.
Winona: She's so awesome!! I like the way she maneuvers flying-type Pokémon. She's the one responsible for reminding me of Falkner when I was in Hoenn. She's very graceful and has a lot of great advices. I once trained with her with my Pidgeot and we'd go to the hot springs with Flannery sometimes.
Tate and Liza: Those twins are adorable. I just… think their Pokémon are intimidating for me.
Wallace: That guy… I never thought that he's the champ. But anyway, he's really a gentleman and all. He's elegant, and he has the looks to go with it.
Juan: He's like a Matador. For some reason, I am entertained by his very presence.
Roark: Is he a little too young to handle a gym?? Nah, there are other younger gym leaders than him so I guess he's fine. He's a cute guy in my opinion.
Gardenia: I like the way she designed her gym. She's a really great grass type trainer too. Well we do share one thing in common… we both love grass types! But I do raise other types too.
Maylene: She's a good battler. I must admit, because of her and Riley, I wanted a Lucario of my own.
Crasher Wake: Not much to say about him too. But… I am impressed by his wrestling-like moves in battle.
Fantina: She's simply gorgeous! I adore her sense of style and her elegance~
Byron: He reminds me of my father for some reason. I did befriend him and well, he's really nice and all that. After leaving me some advice after our gym battle, I swore to battle with him again some time.
Candice: She's rather cold during our first meeting. But oh well, not people are nice when you first meet them!
Volkner: He's cool and I find him funny. I guess he makes a pretty nice person to talk to. He's very entertaining.
Lorelei/Kanna: Never met.
Bruno/Shiba: Never met.
Agatha/Kikuko: Never met.
Lance/Wataru: He's… I don't know. I only met him once and we never even talked. But from my impression on him, he seems rather scary and intimidating.
Giovanni/Sakaki: Never met.
Domino: Never met.
Butch/Kosaburo: Never met.
Cassidy/Yamato: Never met.
Jesse/Musashi & James/Kojirou: They tried to steal my Pidgeotto once. Other than irritating mischief-makers, I don't actually care what they do.
Meowth/Nyaasu: Talking Meowth? Cool…
Team Aqua (never met)
Team Magma (never met)
Cyrus/Akagi: Never met.
Mars: That woman is so proud and boastful. I did battle her once and gave it out at full blast, but none of us won since she left at once. We never met since but I really, really dislike her.
Jupiter: Never met.
Saturn: Never met.
Charon: A creepy guy. That's all.
