Emolga is a Pokemon OC created by Laki. He's a mischievious prankster that seems to always appear at random. Emolga's appearances are very sporadic, being rampant throughout chatroom RPs but appearing very rarely in major canon ones.
Emolga is a trouble-making and random young man who seems to exist solely to annoy the other characters. He grows bored easily and has a short-attention span, thus he just uses his time doing various pranks. He can be a bit rude some times or a deadpan snarker other times, though he does occasionally show that he has a heart, such as saving his friends when they're in serious danger. Emolga is older than his cousin, Pikachu, despite the fact that he looks and sounds much younger. In fact, Emolga's age itself is often the target of numerous character in-jokes, with not even Emolga or his creator knowing his exact age. He's very much aware of the fourth wall and has a tendency to break the logic-scale numerous times, including an entire arc revolving around this. Aside from his occasional anti-social tendencies, Emolga deep down longs for connections with others. Overall, a lot of his true character is still wrapped in a burrito of mystery. It is later revealed that Emolga's famly grew frustrated by his behavior and decided to pawn him off on Pikachu to look after.
Emolga appears in very few major timeline RPs, but is often found in side RPs. The one major RP he appears in is the Second Secret War, where he tags together with Teddy, Aqua, Chiko, Pikachu and Lunatyr to stop Vanessa from making a hypnotic empire. Emolga has an even bigger role in Dream Catastrophe, where he and Possei pull a prank that causes the world of dreams to go haywire and he has to work with the others to fix it. He appears as a primary group member in the Quest to Stop Chaos, working together with the others to rescue Abby. Emolga will make an appearance in RPCRP2, set to be a key character in an arc pertaining to the Logic-Scale. Emolga may also make appearances in KaPRPT.
Emolga's relationships with the other characters are all over the place, some negative and some positive. He is close to Pikachu even though he's often the prime target for his pranking. Before meeting Posei, Emolga felt that Pikachu was the only person he was close to, despite sometimes acting obnoxious towards him. Emolga develops a bit of a dynamic with Leon, Shiruru, Riley, Iceo and Espeo after Dream Catastrophe, usually spending more time with them than with Flamber, Sheebop, Aqua or Chiko. Emolga would seem to be growing closer to Elli as they spend more time together but in the end he pursues a relationship with Possei, seeing her as his partner-in-crime.
