Description:
A story about a Slowbro's journey into the Pokemon world to discover himself...but what about those he has left behind who need protection? A mix of comedy and adventure, with emphasis on the comedy.

As the title indicates, there are three adventures, although I've only written the first one. I too am testing the waters, so I don't know how this will go--hopefully well!

This is based on the second gen Pokemon and the games Gold and Silver. Although most of the characters are male, female voices are acceptable as well. After all, they're just Pokemon.

Slowbro



NO
IMAGE
Name: Slowbro
Gender: Male
Age: Young Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Unlike most members of his species, Slowbro is quite bright and rather headstrong. He wants to see life outside of Slowpoke Well and drags along his friend/unwilling companion, Shellder, for the ride. He often puts himself above others and must learn his lesson through his adventures.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"I've been bored for a long time, but I was afraid to ask, because I thought I would sound ungrateful for all the things that this Well and this town have done for me."
Line 2:
"Not a bad idea, huh?"
Line 3:
"We're here! We're halfway home!"

Shellder



NO
IMAGE
Name: Shellder
Gender: Male
Age: Young Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Slowbro's sarcastic companion, who is attached to the titular character by the tail. He regrets ever biting Slowbro, because it means that he has to go on the adventure, too. He should be outspoken, but not obnoxious.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"Every Shellder dreams of becoming a Slowbro's accessory. Once we're attached at the tail, I don't have to do any work. You get all the food for me. It's all part of being a parasite."
Line 2:
"My head wouldn't hurt if we had been captured. And physically I'm pretty much nothing but a head, so my whole body hurts."
Line 3:
"After taking me out of my home, hitting me against a tree, putting me in a train with an insane Hoothoot, and getting my brain turned sideways by those psychics, nay, those PSYCHOS! Now you ask me if I'm okay?"

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
