#4 in Gina’s Lineup- Shade
Ghost Pokemon are a unique phenomenon. While most Pokemon will die in the usual manner, powerful Pokemon might undergo a rapid transition at a near-death moment, into a new form which is best described as ghost-like. While most of these ghosts remain disconnected enough to block any trainer relationships, occasionally a sensitive trainer will bond with one at the moment of transition.
The acquisition of Shade makes up the majority of the ghost temple segment of the storyline. Shade (formerly a Dragonair) and Gina bond over Gina’s grief at her grandfather’s passing, as well as her confusion and anger over the family skeletons in the closet. Shade doesn’t stick around the team, but pops in and out as needed. Plays mind-games and tricks while in battle, softening the opponent to more physical attacks.
Realistic Pikachus. The token Pokemon.
Also could be considered Pokemon #0 for Gina. While trainer battles are not permitted until students have gained the appropriate license after school, kids will be kids and ‘alley fights’ are common. Gina is thrown a Pikachu (later named Pippin) as part of a challenge from Gary. Pippin stays with Gina and her mother, but isn’t a good choice for Gina’s team. Pippin fills in as needed on the team, but normally stays with her mother and keeps company, as well as a bit of protection.
#2 on Gina’s team: Dorothy
Gina’s second Pokemon, found when a baby and trained into a large, efficient bird-of-prey with multiple air tricks. Plays the roles of scout and long-range attacker on the team, as well as an environment manipulator. Gina and Dorothy share a mutual respect and understanding, but are not cuddly by any means. Dorothy’s training takes place when both undergo training at the flight gymnasium, greatly increasing both of their skills and understanding.
Named in a bit of homesickness, as Gina feels like she was swept into Oz via tornado.
