Aipom: Normal Type

Aipom took a few steps back trying to gauge the distance of the large gap in front of him. The bridge had collapsed and now the only way to get across would be to leap… but could he make it. He took a few quick breaths in and out trying to get his heart beating faster. There was no time to go around the chasm, so this was what he had to do, he had made large jumps before easy, but none quite as big as this one. He chuckled nervously out loud. He couldn’t think about what he was about to do, if he thought about it too much he would convince himself not to do it, and he had to do it...right?

Handy

The most notable feature about Aipom is their large, handlike tail. The appendage on the end of it can be manipulated to grab and hold onto things giving them farther reach then they would normally be able to have. Their tail is extremely powerful and they can often be found using it as balance and support when climbing with a number of stronger Aipom even able to lift themselves up entirely with just their tail. They also may hang from their tail when attempting to swing through the treetops. When they sleep they will often use their extra hand to secure them down somewhere or to hold onto their valuables to make sure that they aren't stolen in the night.

Clumsy

Due to using their tail more often than actual hands, Aipom’s regular hands have become quite clumsy. It's unclear if they are born with less coordination in their hands or if it's solely due to their lack of practice using them, but their small arms are nearly universally clumsy. Aipom will often grow out the hair between their ears and will spend hours styling each other's hair. They prefer to let their friends style it, but will do so themselves if they have to and enjoy making it look different every day. If you want to win an Aipom over you simply have to offer it something sweet. They love candies and fruits and will often go mad if they see someone eating one and not sharing with them.

Extra Hand

Your tail is an unsuspecting hand that others may not be able to keep track of when keeping an eye on you. You are proficient in the sleight of hand skill and the acrobatics skill.

Up High

High in the treetops is where most Aipom prefer to spend their lives. They like to live in tree dwelling cities where houses are only connected by a thin rope bridge. The less time they spend on the ground the more happy they tend to be. Some Aipom will even build their homes inside trees if the tree canopy is unavailable.

Aipom Traits

Allignment: Curious, wild and unpredictable is how most creatures would describe Aipom. This Pokemon will be interested in one thing one moment before its interests quickly shift to another. They are constantly looking for affirmation from others and just want friends and on occasion will be willing to do less than savory things to win someone as a ‘friend’.

Aipom quickly reached for the next branch above her. She was making good speed up this tree. It was the largest one around for miles and once she reached the top she should be able to tell where she was. Reaching for the next branch her clumsy hand slipped causing her to fall down a few feet before some larger branches caught her causing the wind to leave her for a moment. She stayed still for a moment trying to catch her breath as her eyes fell on her busted up tail. She had used it to fight the other day and now it was useless. Looking at her hands she felt like she was going to cry, her hands were useless as well, so she must be useless too, if she couldn’t even climb this tree what help was she to her friends?
